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)

"We Don't Want No Two State, We Want '48": Telling the Brooklyn Bridge

On "Nakba Day" in old New York, a long stream of American Arabs and assorted Israel-haters  (including a contigent of Neturei Karta nuts) tell the Brooklyn Bridge exactly what their aims are.

"We Don't Want No Two State, We Want '48" they scream over and over. 

And "There is only one solution: Intifada Revolution"

 The old "From the River to the Sea ..." mantra is both seen and heard too.  And how.

Declares their personable and articulate leader, they are "calling for the dismantling of the Entity Israel ...." and will never rest until every city from Haifa to all of Jerusalem is theirs.

(At least they're honest about their aims!)

You can see a video of this event by scrolling down this Facebook page.

There's a shorter, different video (on YouTube too) on the link below that captures some of the flavour, but not in all its infinite variety.

There is plenty more to be seen on that link, though (including a flat-chested woman who's a dead ringer for Bernie Sanders.)

A couple of dissenters take a stand:

Meanwhile, across the Herring Pond, beamed onto the Parliament building:
