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)

London Crowds Mark Tzipi Livni's Visit (videos)

As reported  here and here and here, Tzipi Lipni, given special diplomatic immunity by the UK government in order to prevent her being served with an international arrest warrant on war crimes allegations relating to Operation Cast Lead, flew into London last week, meeting not only Foreign Secretary William Hague but also Mahmoud Abbas, and addressing a Jewish National Fund  (JNF) function at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower hotel in Cadogan Place, Knightsbridge.
“I am a proud Israeli and I have no problem coming to the UK despite the arrest warrant. I would have come anyway, whether or not the UK government had not blocked the warrant.
Ultimately, we share the same values and I trust the British system to recognise where the truth lies and not to play a part in the persecution of Israelis that is all too common in countries around the world”, she is reported as saying.
She 'revealed that she proudly displays a “wanted" picture of herself in her home alongside a similar photograph of her father when he was a militia leader during the pre-state British Mandate period.“The first thing I want to emphasise is my parents were freedom fighters and not terrorists. I am not willing to accept any comparison with terrorists like Hamas who are looking for civilians to kill.”...'
Outside the hotel well-wishers bearing Israeli flags awaited Ms Livni's arrival, while across the street anti-Israel demonstrators, including  Neturei Karta nutters and a sprinkling of "as-a-Jews", yelled in protest and chanted the "From the River to the Sea ..." refrain, as seen on these videos, the first by anti-Israel activist Alex Seymour (aka Seymour Alexander):
