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)

BDSers target Gloria Gaynor

Found here
The Greek crisis has all but pushed Israel out of the picture as far as many normally Israel-obsessed leftists on social media are concerned.

Meanwhile, though, American singer Gloria Gaynor, due to perform in Tel Aviv on 29 July, has received a billet-doux imploring her as a "woman of color" to cancel the gig, and Israel-haters are encouraging the like-minded to harass her on Twitter.

The missive referred to begins:
'We, the undersigned, the Campaign to Boycott Supporters of Israel in Lebanon (CBSI) and the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) are pleased to learn that you plan to perform in Lebanon on July 31, 2015 but are deeply dismayed that, two days earlier, you are scheduled to sing in Tel Aviv. We call on you to cancel your Tel Aviv performance, as no matter what your intentions are, Israel’s regime of oppression will use your name, as the South African apartheid regime used artists’ names, to whitewash its crimes.
We represent large segments in Lebanese and Palestinian societies that hail from different backgrounds but are united in a common struggle to end Israel’s regime of occupation, settler-colonialism and apartheid, including the occupation of parts of Lebanon. We uphold the inalienable right of the Palestinian people to self-determination, and the right of return of Palestinian refugees who were ethnically “cleansed” from their homeland in 1948....'
Can one from Roger Waters be far behind?
