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)

Jeremy Corbyn Breaks His Silence (video) (updated)

In an interview with Channel 4's Cathy Newman, British Labour Party leadership hopeful Jeremy Corbyn, darling of the anti-Israel Left, and clearly irritated, answers (after a fashion) some of those troubling questions.

Update: Harry's Place had a good analysis of this interview (hat tip: Ian)

My piece re the Corbyn candidacy at Elder of Ziyon


  1. And the hits just keep on coming

    Corbyn invited “friend” to parliament who rejoiced in death of UK soldiers

  2. Thanks, Ian.
    Great performance from Middle East analyst Jonathan Sacerdoti here, regarding the Corbyn leadership bid.
    Incidentally, Gabrielle (Gabi) Weiniger, who also appears, is a signatory to Jews for Justice for Palestinians.
