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 Declaring the Muslim Brotherhood a Terrorist Organization

Image from HERE
"President Trump is considering designating the global Muslim Brotherhood organization as terrorist. It’s about time. 
Two days before he signed the Executive Order on “Protecting the Nation from Terrorist Attacks by Foreign Nationals, the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) began organizing nationwide protests against the anticipated order, which the mischaracterized the suspension of U.S. visas to Muslim refugees and travelers from only seven out of fifty Muslim-majority countries, as a “ban.” CAIR was immediately joined by progressive Left organizations that protested the election of Donald Trump as President. Thus Left-leaning ill-informed organizations, CEOs of tech companies (How many of their employees are immigrants, or Work-Visa holders from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen?)  and Democratic-run-States joined forces with MB-affiliated groups to undermine the power of the President and the security of the nation...."

So begins Rachel Ehrenfeld's long, informative, and important article on the Brotherhood and its on-going mischief,  for which click here

Here's the USA's former ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton on the same theme ( :



  2. There's been a great deal of discussion on this and pro MB groups and their hangers on proclaim that it's illegal to declare them a terrorist group, or, it's just too hard to do because of the diffuse organization of the MB. But there's an entire world of law that looks at actual behavior, actual results. Like RICO statutes that look at the behavior of a criminal enterprise not the specific crimes it committed. The MB seems to be a candidate for prosecution along the lines of the Mafia or drug cartels. The crimes can be lumped together but it's the organizational activity that's the lever to prosecute them with. ARE they engaged in a criminal front? Then go after that. ARE they raising funds in a criminal way for criminal purposes? Then go after that.
