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)

The Envoy, The Crooner, & The Semantics of "Occupation" (video)

"It is time to end the occupation".

So declares the "Palestinian ambassador to the UK," Professor Manuel Hassassian, in this video by our old friend Alex Seymour.  Professor Hassassian explains that he's come to lend support to a demo outside the Red Cross headquarters in London regarding the incarceration of "political prisoners" in Israeli gaols.

Trouble is, "ending the occupation" does not appear to be the ultimate goal of the demonstrators, as the song belted out by the bloke with the guitar indicates when it invokes a familiar refrain.

As for Palestinian prisoners of the Israelis, see the video and article here

And here's what another Palestinian has been saying in American regarding "the Zionists":

To quote the video's maker,
'Osama Abu Irshaid, the national director of the Chicago-based American Muslims for Palestine organization, said that the Zionist movement has managed to culturally infiltrate American consciousness by claiming that Israel and the United States share the circumstances of their establishment. Speaking at a symposium titled “Confronting the Zionist Myths,” which was held in Istanbul as part of the second International Palestine Forum for Media and Communications, Abu Irshaid said that this claim has some truth to it, because both countries were involved in “ethnic cleansing.” Abu Irshaid complained that while MEMRI exposes “flops” in the Arab media to American public opinion, the Arab rhetoric is always emotional.
The Al-Jazeera network broadcast the event on May 18, 2016.'

Richard Millett is his good articulate self here:


  1. Hassassian is an Armenian name... Kind of funny when you claim to be a so called "Palestinian"...
