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 London, the Naive & the Noxious

"From the River to the Sea, Palestine Will Be Free!" blared the hordes of Israelphobes who rallied in London on 11 May for a bumper anti-Israel rally addressed by Israel-hating poster girl Ahed Tamimi herself.

"Resist! Exist! Return!" proclaimed their placards.

Yes, even those with a Room Temperature IQ must realise what the demonstrators have in mind  for the plucky little State of Israel.

In the Grauniad, a brief sanitised description of events here

Glean the mood and tone of the demonstrators on BDSer Seymour Alexander's 16-minute video below.

Some photos of the marchers, the usual mishmash of Muslims and Far Leftists and Judeophobic old dears:

Spot a familiar face in the crowd, in that last one?  Yes, that  is indeed flamboyant Welsh Greens ex-leader and veteran Israel basher Pippa Bartolotti, appropriating the Welsh flag for  the ignoble cause:

    “…the almost torrential criticism of Israel and the mainstreaming of anti-Zionism, including by this paper, which has become so common that people have been desensitized to its inherent bigotry.”

    and the Middle East, then do not waste
    your time with the FAKE NEWS
    of The New York Times and the
    Israel-bashing mainstream-news-media.
