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)

In Leafy London, Israel-Haters Ham it Up (video)
With young kids screaming "Free Palestine" and that well-known mendacious map set as props, with a bearded old codger pretending to be a Hebron "settler" and a middle-aged woman an "American", and also featuring old ladies kitted out like pantomime dames, members of the Richmond and Kingston PSC branch demonise Israel in the shopping precinct of the leafy London borough of Kingston upon Thames.
In the main, it seems, passers-by are literally that, giving the puerile performances a wide berth.
(Yes, we've seen the old dears enacting that "heart attack" scenario before.)
