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)

Who's Blue, Pussycat? Blue Enough To Sue? Gorgeous George, That's Who

Shocking as the shade of pink
He's blue?

Well, obviously not politically.

His colour's morewell, look left.

But the man infamous for playing a pussycat lapping milk from the manicured hands of the winsome Rula Lenska as he lies at her feet is feeling really blue.

Reflecting bitterly on what he insists is his horrendous treatment on last week's BBC Question Time, George dubs Cristina Odone (who as we saw in a previous blogpost of mine placed her hand lightly on his arm to interject a point) "the saintly figure with wandering hands who is never done telling us what a Christian she is".

He places her among the "bit-players on the panel", who also comprise, in his words,

'the hapless Tristram Hunt MP (who attended the same expensive public school as [Jonathan] Freedland, in fact I was the only person sitting at the table who hadn’t been educated at a private school)....'

In basic black, with an old chum of ours
'I feel very let down by David Dimbleby. I have known him a long time, have always respected him and I didn’t expect the serial failures of which he was clearly guilty....
 The audience selection supposedly scientifically calibrated was laughably biased. Ludicrous and counter productive though that turned out to be, there was no guarantee of that outcome.
 I know of several pro-Palestinian supporters, Muslims, and Respect members who were turned down in their attempts to join the audience. Fanatic supporters of Israel evidently had no such difficulty....
 A special place in the hall of shame must go to the Guardian’s executive editor Jonathan Freedland selected for the role of chief prosecutor in the show trial. The Guardian, a faux liberal newspaper which last summer accepted (that which even Rupert Murdoch had declined) a paid full page advertisement from an Israeli organisation while the blood was still running in the streets of Gaza seeking to justify the slaughter and slander the Palestinians, thousands of whom had by then been slain.
 There is intense competition for the title of Hypocrite in Chief at The Guardian but Freedland in my view shades it....'
But since getting all that off his chest, Gorgeous George has mounted a defamation suit against a Guardian journalist.
