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)

Stephen Sizer Records For Channel 4 On Topic Antisemitism

I hear that pro-Iranian anti-Israel crusader Stephen Sizer, Anglican vicar of Virginia Water, has this week recorded an interview for the 4thought programme on Britain's Channel 4 on the topic of antisemitism.

It's expected to be broadcast late next month as, I understand from my informant,  "a series of short epilogues".

Since Stephen Sizer has been widely seen as an antisemite himself this should be interesting, to say the least.
Meanwhile, as reported in the current Jewish Chronicle, the Methodist Friends of Judaism (MFJ) has been launched.  Co-ordinated by Reverends Colin Smith and Bruce Thompson, it aims, according to the report,
'to celebrate the contribution of Judaism to the worldwide community, to raise awareness of anti-Judaism within the Christian church, and to challenge antisemitism. Rev Smith is also a member of the Council of Christians and Jews.
The creation of the foundation represents a thawing of Methodist-Jewish relations. In 2010 the Methodist church conference voted to approve a report which [Borad of Deputies' president Vivian] Wineman called “unqualified Israel bashing”.'


  1. Speaking of anti-Semites, Michèle Renouf has resurfaced out of the primordial slime, to call for all Jews to be deported to Russia!

  2. an interview for the 4thought programme on Britain's Channel 4 or Speaking on Iranian Press TV ?
