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)

French intellectual Guy Millière, of the University of Paris, reminds us here that, perversely, there is in France one source of antisemitism which authorities don't seem keen on naming.

It's a source of antisemitism that the people in this video can identify all too well.

As a "companion piece" to my last post, here's Katie talking to French Jews and others who have made aliya (or in Katie's word, joined the "Jexodus" from the old homeland) due to that very source ofantisemitism ...  The emphasis on France begins from abour 16:14, and after a brief segment about what's happening (and not for the better) in Italy, there is much emphasis on France and on Israel, where a most personable rabbi talks frankly: "You are not safe, and we are more safe than you", he says  ...


  1. We need a second JEXODUS in which Jews abandon the
    Democratic Party of the United States of America.

    Jonathan S. Tobin [editor in chief of JNS] said:

    “She [Ilhan Omar] has made a name for herself not by talking about the concerns of Minnesotans, but by the outrageous manner in which she has trafficked in anti-Semitic tropes as she pursues her advocacy against Israel.

    Along with Tlaib, she is one of the only two open supporters of the anti-Semitic BDS movement that promotes boycotts against the State of Israel.

    She has claimed that Jews are buying the support of Congress for Israel and questioned the loyalty of her congressional colleagues who are pro-Israel.

    Despite this, the Democrats elevated [Ilhan] Omar to a seat on the House Foreign Relations Committee and refused to name her in a resolution denouncing anti-Semitism.”

    Is it Ilhan Omar’s Democratic Party now?
    Jonathan S. Tobin, 2019 May 22

    Jonathan S. Tobin [editor in chief of JNS] said:

    “If even a popular, pro-Israel Jewish Democrat like Adler was afraid to stand up to Ilhan Omar in his own city, then it’s not clear under what circumstance any member of that party would think they could afford to do so.

    That means that the battle to quarantine an anti-Semite like Omar to the margins of American politics has been lost. Not only are she and Tlaib among the young rock stars of their party, they have far greater influence than anyone would have thought only a few months ago.”

    Is it Ilhan Omar’s Democratic Party now?
    Jonathan S. Tobin, 2019 May 22

    PS: If you are truly pro-Israel,
    then you should visit every day.

  2. Jeremy Rosen said:

    “We were fooling ourselves if we thought
    that anti-Semitism had disappeared.

    And if the left wing of the Democratic Party
    achieves dominance, you can be sure it will increase.”

    Blame the Jews

    Why no consequences for anti-Semitism in Democratic Party?

  3. “Writer David Steinberg identified 105 news stories written in the immediate aftermath of [Ilhan] Omar’s victory [as one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress], and not a single one mentioned that she believed Jewry possessed mind-control abilities or that Israel was evil.

    No one called on the Democratic Party to distance itself from this rhetoric.”
