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)

An ex-Vicar & a Rabbi Make an Iftar Meal of It

No matter that its leader, Marwan Bargouthi, was caught on candid camera munching away while supposedly leading a hunger strike of fellow jailbirds and is in jail because he's a cold-blooded murderer, our old friend the ex-vicar of Virginia Water has used the recent "hunger strike" of Palestinian prisoners as a stick with which to beat Israel. Now based in Southampton, and reinvented by himself as CEO of Peacemaker Mediators, he did so at a Ramadan event in London ostensibly intended as a warm and cosy interfaith event promoting understanding between Judaism, Christianity and Islam (though I'm sure the organisers wouldn't list the three so-called Abrahamic faiths in the order I have).

Like lots of other Israel-bashers, including the "Intifada" T-shirt sellers who feature in my previous post, the ex-vicar has a soft spot these Neturei Karta nuts, because the Neturei Karta nuts, of course, disavow Israel and as we know only too well Jews who show hostility towards Israel are the only "good Jews" in Muslim and far leftist eyes:

Predictably, then, we find, participating in the Ramadan event (which presumably was never intended to be other than an anti-Israel fest) not a mainstream rabbi but a certain Rabbi Jacob Weisz of the whacko Neturei Karta movement, a man who like Sizer himself is no stranger to appearing on the Iranian propaganda satellite channel to whack the Zionist entity:
Orthodox Jew Rabbi Jacob Weisz says Israel isn't Jewish – Press TV UK  May 27, 2016 - Press TV UK – Rabbi Jacob Weisz slams Israel during an appearance on Press   TV's The Sun Will Rise show.
The pair deserve each other. 

Now, Sizer is rather partial to sticking up for Muslims.

And for victims of racism, including leftwing Labour MP Diane Abbott, who's black.

However, staunch Corbynista Sizer (his Facebook posts frequently extol the Trotskyite Labour leader) is less inclined to acknowledge and deplore antisemitic racism such as these examples given by Labour MP Luciana Berger.

Nor, as I've pointed out many times, does he seem eager to banish antisemites from the ranks of his own followers.

Recent Sizerisms (like the less recent) leave us in no doubt as to how partisan he is and where in consequence he'll be heading with his Peacemaker Mediators: 

And consequently how duplicitous the name Peacemaker Mediators is.


  1. In the US at any rate you don't have to scrape the bottom of the barrel to find lunatic Jews who can't wait to run laughing into the gas chambers. Go to any Reform temple or egalitarian Conservative shul. It will be pretty much anyone you find. What Americans used to call mainstream Zionist Judaism is dead, apart from MO and Chabad.

    The Tooting fruitbowl look like another pro-Iran joint. Sizer hates Saudi but as you know Daph, sucks up to Iran.
