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)

Mark Regev Interviewed Regarding The Truce (video)

Here's Mark Regev talking to Al Jazeera shortly after the truce came into effect, an interview somewhat  marred by the constant interruptions of a none-too-patient interviewer:

Hamas's reaction to yesterday's bomb blast:

Hat tip to reader Jean Vercors of Ashdod for this photo of an Israeli mother in Ofakim shielding her child as sirens blare the warning of an incoming rocket from Gaza during the recent crisis:


  1. BBC News 24 at 3p.m. GMT observed in passing that three rockets were fired shortly after the ceasefire came into effect.
    In true biased BBC style it failed to say that those three rockers were fired from Gaza into Israel.
    What a despicable crowd the Beeboids are.

    Melanie Phillips on the truce:

  2. More jejune and subjective "analysis" from the execrable Bowen:

  3. that picture of mother as human shield should be sent to the BBC for their website Daphne

    1. Reckon that nest of Israel-demonisers would publish it, Veronica?

  4. Actually, Veronica - someone should tweet it to Jon Donnison saying "This is what a human shield looks like" ...

  5. Charles Krauthammer as picked up on the blog on Australian conservative journalist Tim Blair.

    "Why was there an Israel–Gaza war in the first place? Resistance to the occupation, say Hamas and many in the international media.

    "What occupation? "
