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)

Coffins At The Kindergarten

Role-playing martyrdom: coffins in a Gaza kindergarten
Here's a taste of how little Palestinian children at a kindergarten in Gaza City are taught to hate Israel.

To quote a teacher:
"In every year’s kindergarten graduation ceremonies we focus on the children to represent the role of struggling and resistance in the way of Allah, in order to establish this path and grow up to love the resistance, and for it to have a prominent role in their lives to serve the cause of Palestine and Holy Jihad, as well as to make them leaders and fighters to defend the holy soil of Palestine."
To quote a boy brandishing a wooden weapon and attired in the uniform of the Al Quds Brigades of Islamic Jihad:
"I love the resistance and the martyrs and Palestine, and I want to blow up the most Zionists in a process of martyrdom and kill them."
For pictures of the infant jihadists practising, and a link to further ones, see here (from where I copied the photograph).  Alternatively, see this post of the remarkable blogger Challah Hu Akhbar – like Elder of Ziyon he never seems to sleep! –  who was, I believe, the first westerner to expose this school for small shahids)


  1. This link doesn't work Daphne

    Challa Hu Akhbar

    1. Thanks, Shirlee - it should work now!

  2. Daphne you’ve ended up with a space at the end of your Challa Hu Akhbar link.

    That’s Palestinian unity for you, Hamas, Fatah(?) and Islamic Jihad flags on children’s coffins.

  3. Apologies this off topic, Daphne, re Marrickville, they are now attacking the Coptic members of the community, this from facebook:
    "OK - a few weeks ago the topic of the Coptic Museum and the state of St Mary's Coptic Church in Sydenham was raised. We said we will write to Marrickville Council and request a status report. This is the response we received (quite sad): "The Old Coptic Church has been earmarked for demolition".

    As you no doubt know, the Coptic church moved from that site due to the unsuitability of that site for public use.

    As such I do not believe it is in the public interest for council to spend public funds attempting to restore a building which is located under the flight path"

    1. Apologies for forgetting to thank you sooner for this, Juniper.
