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)

BDS: Ben attempts a Whitewash

Remember this from 2013?

Or this from Professor William Jacobson of Cornell University?

 Or this from the amusing and estimable British writer Howard Jacobson? 

 Or this from the intense and sardonic Pat Condell?

All make fine points about and against the BDS movement.

As does Alan Dershowitz here:

And here:

And now, perhaps alarmed by Professor Dershowitz's triumph last Sunday at the Oxford Union and article here (also available here), young Ben White, British Israel-basher extraordinaire, has issued guidelines to his faithful on how to combat opponents of the unconscionable movement that is BDS.

Here's young Ben's attempted whitewash.

Expect it to be parroted by the usual suspects in the days, weeks, and months to come.
