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)

Pro-Israel Activists Face Anti-Israel Haters in London (video)

A raw and raucous anti-Israel crowd, bolstered by a contingent of Neturei Karta nutjobs (prominent among, if I'm not mistaken, them the chap who marched with Nazim Ali at this event), protest the London visit of Ehud Barak and JW3's interview with him.  But they don't have an easy time of it, for Jonathan Hoffman and other pro-Israel activists, many carrying Israeli flags, have also turned out, and so have a squad of Mr Plods.

Some days earlier, placard-waving, screeching, chanting and singing Israel-haters vent their spleen outside the Albert Hall, protesting the Israel 70th birthday celebration inside.  "Enjoy your shame?" screams the ubiquitous Sandra at one reveller, whom another protester harangues with the taunt "You support 70 years of terrorism!"  A guitar-strummer sings "We are all Palestinians now" and adds a new one to his repertoire, "Palestine, Where the Olive Trees Die", to the tune of Gershwin's Summertime.  At one point a policeman cops an earful from Sandra, but it's hard to make out.
