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)

The Seventh Century Touch: Physician, heal thyself

My previous post concerned antisemitism in Iran, and the blood libels that have become part and parcel of the regime's hostility to Jews and Israel.

Helping to peddle Iran's propaganda generally in the West are British journalists and interviewees who are only too happy to broadcast their own spleen against Israel by appearing on the Iranian regime's satellite channel Press TV.

And even though Press TV is no longer allowed to broadcast over the UK airwaves, it continues to be accessible via the internet.

Overnight on Thursday, rockets from Hamas-held Gaza were fired across the border into Israel.

British anti-Israel propagandist RT journalist Harry Fear has chosen the Press TV version of events to alert his faithful on social media to the latest violence:

Predictably, howls of outrage have ensued from followers Western and  non-Western, male and female, alike.

There are naive useful idiots.  But mainly there are  the disguised and undisguised Jew-haters.
 "First rocket fired by Gaza ? BS"
"Looks like they've had a head start. It's 'normally' during Ramadan"
"May the wrath of God be upon Israel. Can't believe I'm reading this"
 "UNBELIEVABLE!!! When will these zionists just die already!!? The most dark and filthy beings on the face of the earth!!! And the whole world will just turn a blind eye, even after 7 decades!!!"
 "i did not n will not turn blind eye ... Israel n its allies are the real terrorists"
"Israel is the cancer at the heart of the mideast !"
"defend itself from what exactly? from a country weakened by the oppression of the illegal state of Israel?"
"They are stijl guests on that soil... what kind of People are they? They never can stop! Ridiculous"
 "Zionist scum"
"Sick Zion race, shame on them"
"Burn in hell israhell"
 Par for the course.  Of course.

One post, made in response to a lone commenter a Hindu man living in India who defended Israel's right to defend itself is especially shocking, especially as the young Tunisian man who made it is not an uneducated person devoid of secular learning and steeped in the Dark Ages but a medical student, no less.

He's greeted the pro-Israel Hindu man with this noisome sentiment:
"I hope deeply from my heart that someone came rape your wife or girl or sister kick you out of your land kills yours parents and say this land is his right because a book dated 3000 years ago say so ..."
 So far, several persons have liked this abominable comment.

And unless she has a bogus profile, one of them is female.  A Western woman at that.

Just goes to show how visceral the hatred of Israel is in some warped minds.

And how the primitive notion of women as property, and not merely property but property that can and should be punished to atone for the "sins" of their male family members, lingers in others.

Meanwhile, in the Gaza that is apparently journalist Fear's most-trodden patch, courtesy of his employer RT:
