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)

On the Muslim Response to moving the Tel Aviv Regime's US Embassy to Al Quds, & the role of BDS (video)
On the satellite propaganda channel of the land of the ayatollahs, urbane presenter Raza Kazim talks to Oxford Professor Tariq Ramadan regarding the appropriate Muslim response to Donald Trump's proposal to move the US embassy in Israel "The Tel Aviv Regime" to Jerusalem (noted the shocked emphasis in his voice, as if Jerusalem has as scant relevance to Jews, Judaism and Israel "The Zionist Entity" as it does to, well, er, to the text of the Quran.
Professor Ramadan discusses the pressure Muslims in the UK and the West can exert ("as citizens we are here to speak out"), and then launches into a spirited discussion of BDS strategies.
Bonus: Here's (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ni5HL6N0kbM) the former Mr Witz with his usual good sense:
Wondering what the Arab is going to say is a bit like wondering what CNN is going to say at any given moment. We pretty much know what they're going to say. Because reality doesn't matter, facts don't matter, nothing matters. All that matters is that they shout and scream and whine and complain. The words coming out of their mouths are unimportant. A twitterbot could do it.ReplyDelete
