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)

Old Irish Trot Slugs A Left Hook (Or Three) At Israel

An old Trotskyite from the Emerald Isle, where hatred of Israel is particularly vicious, especially among those who support and supported the Republican cause against the British, has perniciously denounced the Zionist Entity in an op-ed in The Irish Times, entitled "It is the everyday harassment that shows the hatred behind official Israeli ideology".

Battle of Bogside veteran Eamonn McCann credits the influence of a deceased Irish journalist called Mary Holland, who (though he doesn't volunteer the fact) just happens to have been his partner and the mother of two of his children:
"As soon as you walked out of the hotel, she recalled, you could see something was terribly wrong. Arabs shrinking back on the pavements to allow Jews to pass, being literally, physically pushed out of their way if they didn’t move fast enough, and, worst of all in her account, the Arabs’ heads-down acceptance of it all." 

McCann (read more about him here), who also cites the influence of, among others, the repellent Tony Cliff (born in Eretz Israel as Yigael Gluckstein) writes of "the settled hatred that lies at the heart of Israel’s official ideology" and confidently predicts Israel's "downfall in the end".

I guess, then, he and his ilk will be glad to see the back of "settled hatred" such as this and  this

And this:
