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)

Anti-Israel Fanatics Petition Morgan Freeman
Celebrated African-American screen actor Morgan Freeman is due to be honoured by the Canadian Friends of the Hebrew University at a ceremony in Toronto on 6 May:

“The Canadian Friends of the Hebrew University’s (CFHU) Toronto Chapter will present the esteemed Key of Knowledge award to Morgan Freeman in recognition of his work in combating segregation and prejudice, and promoting knowledge, learning and education throughout the world.”
Predictably, Israel-haters including the usual BDSers are up in arms, and a furious campaign on social media has been launched in order to bring pressure on Mr Freeman to refuse the honour.
"A man of Morgan Freeman's stature would be a political victory for the Israeli's if he accepted the keys. Mr Freeman, please refuse, Israel is an apartheid regime far worse than South Africa ever was." 
So comments someone named Latifa, from France.
'There is an abundance of evidence which proof that Israel is an apartheid state, that its existence consistently infringe upon the rights of Palestinians to even exists. [sic] The Key of Knowledge award from the Canadian Friends of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem is Israel's effort to whitewash its continued oppression of the Palestinian people. Please, please do not aid them in maintaining the ghettos and banstustans in Palestine.'
So comments an apparently Chinese student at Princeton.

Those are among the latest of the many slurs against Israel on a petition to Mr Freeman that's been opened.

Let's hope that Morgan Freeman recognises ignorance and malevolence when he sees it and that the hatred and libel does not succeed.


  1. Those sounds like canned sound bytes distributed by an organization. They're not even trying to pretend they come from real people in "France" and "China" anymore.

  2. I know Im not a very nice person, but I would light a bonfire under the morons. and be done with it.

  3. Time for vile, degenerate anti-Semites to grow up and get over the fact that Israel is defended by the world's best warriors. Israel is not going away. Not now. Not ever. No matter how much the eurotrash hate Jews. Put on your big boy panties and deal with it.

    Pass the matzoh. :)

  4. Wouldn't it be nice if these people (he said generously, as to the label used) could actually define "apartheid" and thus have a basis for their assertions. Given that they don't even know what the word means, they should be (a) sent back to school/college to learn the importance of using words correctly; (b) barred from commenting anywhere but their own sites (i.e., don't pollute the blogosphere with their offensive stupidity) until they can produce a certificate of sensibility; and (c) even then, get barred if they fail to produce evidence and rational argument.

    At the very least, it would stop them from giving me a headache thinking up new ways of saying, politely because I don't want to get barred, that they are idiots, poltroons and fools.

    I feel better now. Until the next time I run into them!
