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)

Should Muslims Outside Jerusalem Visit? (video)

This is a video from the Iranian regime's English-language satellite channel. Press TV. It relates to the controversy prompted by Qatar-based Egyptian cleric ShaikhYousuf Al-Qaradawi, who issued  a fatwa in May forbidding Muslims from outside Jerusalem to visit that city, since to do so entails "dealing with Zionist embassies to obtain visas" and may therefore imply legitimacy of the status quo.


  1. Jerusalem was never a major center for pilgrimage when it was under the control of Muslim Jordan, Christian Britain or Muslim Ottoman Empire.

    Personally, if they don't want to come - DON'T.

    Daniel Pipes in The Muslim Claim to Jerusalem claims that Muslim interest in Jerusalem lies not so much in controlling Jerusalem as it does in denying control over the city to anyone else.

  2. "The people of Palestine are under occupation since 64 years"
    Is he talking about Jordanian and Egyptian occupation of "the people of Palestine" ?

  3. No they shouldn't. Then they'll never leave, be a burden on everyone and become some sort or retarded icon for the idiot pieties of the left.

  4. Thanks for the latest comments. Apologies for the delay in posting them.
