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)

"Safe Spaces for Everyone Except Jews" (video)

A disturbing look at the intimidation of Jewish students on campus in the UK:

To quote the uploader:
 Dr Alan Mendoza engages with a panel to discuss the rise of antisemitism on campus, often disguised as anti-Zionism. Alan is joined by Jonathan Neumann from Jewish Human Rights Watch, Ben Hayton from University College London and Devorah Khafi from Queen Mary University. Current Affairs | J-TV
And from Douglas Murray and the Gatestone Institute, a succinct explanation of why it's not surprisng if youngsters in the UK think "it's open season on Israel":

To quote the uploader:
Antisemitism isn’t new to the UK Labour Party, and its recent antisemitic outbursts shouldn’t surprise anyone. Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has ordered an “independent inquiry” into the party’s antisemitism. Gatestone Institute Senior Fellow Douglas Murray explains how Labour’s antisemitism problem starts at top of the party, and why this inquiry won’t solve anything.
This is the first of the Gatestone Institute's video series, produced with the aid of The


  1. Jewish students intimidated at UC Irvine, escorted to safety

  2. If there are to be no safe spaces ( whatever that new age speak means ) for Jewish students , there must be no safe spaces for the antisemitic Neo fascists who currently have a clear field for their intimidatory actions . That means Jewish students discarding their ' ignore it and it will eventually go away ' approach , and step up to the mark . In the absence of a robust response from the college administrators to enforce a safe space , Jewish students must establish rapid response teams to create their own safe space and a no Pasaran line in the sand beyond which the fascists do not pass . Photograph video and identify each one . I realise nice middle class Jewish kids are not programmed for such response when confronted by visceral foam flecked haters , but they need to change their approach . Bullies tend to back down and if they don't the college will get the message that they are facing anarchy and serious campus unrest unless they face reality that hate and intimidation masquerading as freedom of speech is totally unacceptable .
    Sponsors need to withdraw college funding and students should be examining the chances of a successful class action against the university for failing to provide a safe environment in which to study and thrive .
    It has to stop now .
