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)

Not a BBC Broadcast: "Where is Your Positive Image? ...Ten Important Scientists in 1000 Years?"

Here's an outspoken Middle Eastern broadcaster, Youssef Al-Husseini, telling his Egyptian audience that in view of atrocities on westerners committed by Muslims round the world it's no wonder that the Islamic world has a bad image.

"Why do they hate us?!" he even says at one point.  "If they didn't, there would be something mentally wrong with them." 

And he goes on to observe: "Where is your positive image?" adding scathingly "C'mon ... Ten important scientists in 1000 years?..."

Clearly, this is not a BBC broadcast.

Nor is it likely that Mr Al-Husseini would ever be permitted to speak as he does in the studios of the biased and dhimmitude-inclined British national broadcaster, which is still feeding British schoolkids notions such as these:

For the genuine contributions of medieval Islam to knowledge, all praise.  But let's not practise inverse racism or gild the lily or belittle and disparage Western civilisation, as the BBC loves to do.

  1. 'When you're on the train from Edinburgh to London, you can see Durham Cathedral rising from a bed of broccoli treetops, pushing its way skyward like a majestic fairy-tale castle. When you're closer, it looks a little like an upturned plug, though the ancient appliance to which it could be attached remains mysterious.
    In the brilliant Britain's Best Buildings (BBC2, Saturday), Dan Cruickshank got endearingly animated about the cathedral's incredible history and its sacred geometry. He mapped the place in circles and squares, tenderly traced chevrons while pondering their significance and speculated on the Islamic influences on the architecture.......'

  2. I have been allergic to Cruikshank, windmill arm gestures and all, ever since seeing him on a BBC programme from the Holy Land giving the required propagandistic dig at Israel.

  3. Who knows? Maybe one of the gays they throw off the roof will fly and begin the Islamic Space Program

    1. You have a literally wicked sense of humour, Trudy! Sorry your comment has been posted tardily. I don't know what went wrong there.
