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)

Ayatollah Khamenei: "This cancerous tumour should be fought against"

Addressing scholars from around the world who were in Tehran for a conference on tackling the Takfiri ideology, Iran's supreme spiritual leader describes at length the Zionist Entity as the root of all the Islamic world's evil and fomenter of plots in the Middle East region.

Palestine was "an Islamic country that has been usurped and turned into a means of sabotaging the security of several countries in the region," he rants, and "This cancerous tumour should be fought against".

In the following Press TV video, which is no substitute for the above as far as the actual speech goes, Dr Riaz Karim of the recently formed Veritas Centre for Strategic Studies in London, appears to agree.

However, relief may be on the way!
