Eretz Israel is our unforgettable historic homeland...The Jews who will it shall achieve their State...And whatever we attempt there for our own benefit will redound mightily and beneficially to the good of all mankind. (Theodor Herzl, DerJudenstaat, 1896)

We offer peace and amity to all the neighbouring states and their peoples, and invite them to cooperate with the independent Jewish nation for the common good of all. The State of Israel is ready to contribute its full share to the peaceful progress and development of the Middle East.
(From Proclamation of the State of Israel, 5 Iyar 5708; 14 May 1948)

With a liberal democratic political system operating under the rule of law, a flourishing market economy producing technological innovation to the benefit of the wider world, and a population as educated and cultured as anywhere in Europe or North America, Israel is a normal Western country with a right to be treated as such in the community of nations.... For the global jihad, Israel may be the first objective. But it will not be the last. (Friends of Israel Initiative)

"Our Capital Shall Be Jerusalem" (video)

So thunders an Egyptian cleric representing the Muslim Brotherhood's presidential candidate, in describing his vision of an Islamic Caliphate.  The Brotherhood is bad news for Egyptian women, bad news for the West, and of course bad news for Israel.  I wonder whether the West's human ostriches, and such pundits as Al Beeb's "Middle East editor" Jeremy Bowen, can watch this video (which has been doing the rounds of the blogosphere) and still describe the Brotherhood as moderate.
