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)

Enough Already: A Letter To Lurie

Ah, the New Israel Fund!  As if Israel does not have libellers and slanderers enough (and here's a meshugge claim if ever there was one).

The following speaks for itself:

There is more here


  1. Elder did a great fisking of the NIF reply

  2. He's the maestro!
    Unfortunately, the Jewish Chronicle seems to be under NIF influence.

  3. There is a type of Jewish person and, consequently, a type of Jewish political organization that seems to believe that the best way to be a friend to the Jewish state of Israel is through kicking its ass as much as possible and encouraging the world community to do likewise.

    From what I can tell, this seems to be a peculiarly Jewish psychological malady.

    1. Indeed there is, Mike, and in Australia it's just as bad.
      I should be relocating there not long into the New Year, btw, but will continue to blog.

  4. I am just commenting about this on J-Wire. New Zealand is infected with the same disease. "Zug nisht - shtum"

    Daphne, don't be disappointed. Melbourne is not the same city anymore that you knew and loved. The latest is, received yesterday

    "I am delighted to announce that, thanks to purpose-specific gifts from two generous Australian families, we have been able to appoint Liam Getreu as Executive Director of NIF Australia from 1 January next year."

    This guy is a very much up and coming new breed of Jewish loony leftys in Melbourne.

    There is also a new group: Hold on to your hats.
    Jews Against Israeli Apartheid - Melbourne

    Some of the members are very well known to me, non-Jewish members of pro-Palestinian groups.

  5. You'll have an even funnier one when you see this Daphne

    1. Thanks for this reminder of cultural enrichment, Anon! Have now blogged it.
