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)

"No Empire Has Ever Defeated the Jewish People, and No Force, However Dark, Ever Will"

Britain's former Chief Rabbi, Lord Sacks, on the longest hatred:
"As we approach Yom HaShoah, the day in the Jewish calendar when we remember the victims of the Holocaust, we tragically continue to see levels of antisemitism and antisemitic attacks rising in countries all over the world. Over the past year or so, working with White Animation, I have produced a mini-series of three short animated videos which seek to explain several aspects of the worrying and dangerous return of antisemitism. 
The first video looks at why antisemitism is a virus, how it has mutated over time and why its return today presents a danger not just for Jews, but for all who care about our common humanity. The second video explains what lies beneath the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign, why it is so dangerous, and why Jews, people of all faiths and of none and all those who value a free society must stand up against it. 
This video explores the connection between Jews as a people, Judaism as a religion, and Israel as a state. It also shows how this connection is intrinsic to the link between antisemitism and anti-Zionism; something too often overlooked or misunderstood. 
You can watch and read the transcripts of these three videos here: Please help publicise them as widely as possible because these are messages the world needs to hear. Whatever the threats we face, we are, and have always been, proud to be Jewish and to live as Jews. Throughout history, many have tried to attack us or challenge our beliefs and way of life. And yet, throughout the generations, no empire has ever defeated the Jewish people, and no force, however dark, ever will. Am Yisrael Chai. The Jewish people lives."

    The New York Times LIED about Multi-Million
    Dollar Payments to Terrorists who Murdered Jews:


    Tamar Sternthal of the JointMedia News Service said:

    “On the news side, [ New York Times]
    editors refused to correct both the false report
    that a Pew survey found that nearly half of
    Israeli Jews favor expelling all Palestinians,
    as well as the completely unfounded claim
    that most of Jaffa’s Arab residents were
    forcibly expelled from their homes in 1948.”

    If you want the truth about Israel
    and the Middle East, then do not waste
    your time with the FAKE NEWS
    of The New York Times and the
