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)

Tammi Talks Tachlis (videos)

With its references to the Muslim Students' Association, Students for Justice in Palestine, and the involvement of students from countries in which judeophobia is rife, the following speech concerning antisemitism and anti-Israel activity on campus is not irrelevant to the theme of my previous post.

The speech in question was made last year at Temple Ahavath Torah by Tammi Rossman-Benjamin, who lectures in Hebrew at the University of California at Santa Cruz.

It was posted to YouTube comparatively recently.

For those who feel disinclined to listen to the entire thing, a brief taste of the speech is available below:

Needless to say, Tammi Rossman-Benjamin has been condemned by the usual suspects for delivering an islamophobic hate speech.

A recent University of California at Berkeley student senate resolution that was passed to that effect notes inter alia:
"Islamophobia is defined as the irrational fear of Islam, Muslims, or anything related to the Islamic or Arab cultures and traditions"
So I assume that anyone who deplores the repellent crimes by Arab men from Jordan, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states against women and girls who've fled Syria and find themselves the victims of sexual  harassment and rape (see the video below for the harrowing facts) or the equally repellent crimes by Afghan men against their female "possessions," wives and daughters who are sold for less than the price of a mule (see here for the equally harrowing facts) is guilty of "Islamophobia"?

Truly, the ways of the Israel-demonising Left are hypocritical indeed.
