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)

NUTS & a Nice Pair (videos)

Outrageously, since the education of children is in their members' care, Britain's left-dominated National Union of Teachers has been on the  anti-Israel trail for some time (as I showed here), and, here's one of the latest NUT members  who's keen to pass the anti-Israel message on:
'A teacher is organising a special awareness and fundraising evening after returning from a harrowing trip to Palestine.  Julia Simpkins, secretary of the Bolton-branch of National Union of Teachers (NUT), travelled with a 12-strong delegation to the country to find out about the conditions the Palestinians are forced to endure.  She said: "The NUT takes a delegation twice a year to Palestine so we can see what is happening and raise awareness of the issues back home and get support for the people."  .... Bolton Socialist Club is organising a Palestinian weekend at Bolton Socialist Club this week, starting Friday, with activities speakers and entertainment. Money raised will go towards helping Palestinian women go to university. On Sunday people will be embarking on a sponsored walk from Turton Tower at 10am.  Ms Simpkins said: ".... Israel does not want the Palestinian people there...."
The people who swallow Palestinian propaganda wholesale, and are probably likely to fall for this example in Bolton "'cos a teacher told me so" might have benefited from a pair of simple videos such as these, from the Jerusalem Institute of Justice, had not Pallywood and its fans infected them first.

Meanwhile, here is another nice pair, an imam from Leicester and a vicar from London saying nice things to and about one another.

First, in an ad:

 And secondly, in an Al Jazeera live broadcast:

All very jolly and civilised.  Hard on the face of it to begrudge. There's even a jocular reference to chicken soup.

But, it's (well, both, actually, ad and video, that is) recommended by our old mate, and anything our old mate recommends should probably ring alarm bells in every Zionist noddle.

I have no idea whether the clergyman featured shares Sizer's hostility towards Zionism, but speaking generally the trouble is that more and more and more Christians are allying with Muslims and tending to squeeze Jews (anti-Israel ones excepted) out of the equation.

That, of course, has a deleterious impact on the cause of Israel.

I guess it's an instance of what is often referred to as "Chrislam".

Perhaps the extraordinarily forthright critic of Sizerism Jacob Prasch would have a word for it.


  1. Taqiyya might be that word Daph.

    1. Here's a bloke who won't be taken in.
      Pat Condell on the "refugee" wave:

  2. When did Rev Sizer post that FB post? Has he breached his agreement again?

    1. Referring to the imam and the vicar? A day or two before the date of this post, James.

    2. Thank you. And does the video refer to the ME at all?

    3. I would have to listen carefully before I answered definitively. If it does it is probably only incidental. You may find it on YouTube. I haven't checked.

    4. No, James, having now heard it through closely, I can confirm that there is nothing re the Middle East.

    5. Thank you/ sorry that you had to waste half an hour of your life.

    6. As a retired brigadier friend used to say, "Time spent in reconnaissance is seldom wasted"!
