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)

Hagel & The Mullahs (video) & Here It Comes, Here It Comes Again (video)

The Emergency Committee for Israel continues its seemingly well-justified campaign against Defense Secretary nominee Senator Chuck Hagel.  This advertisement, entitled "Endorsed," is due to air on television screens in Washington, DC and New York from tomorrow.  It contrasts Hagel's views on the Iranian regime, which he described last week as "elected" and "legitimate," with Hillary Clinton's description of the regime as a "military dictatorship".

And now, as a video bonus, a rude reminder that this annual excrescence will soon be upon us:

Meanwhile, the disturbing impact on Jewish students caused by the shameful support by a majority of the professors in the Political Science Department at Brooklyn College for the department's co-sponsorship of a BDS event on campus is evident in this lament:
"... I don’t think this is just a pro-Palestinian event, this is an anti-Israel event. The speakers have a history of speaking about the destruction of Israel. BDS is not just a pro-Palestinian group, it’s anti-Israel. So for them to sponsor this event is troubling to me because it seems as though they are taking a side. Which is something that should not be happening at a college.
 As a Jew, as someone who supports Israel, it makes me feel very uncomfortable sitting in front of these teachers."
