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)

"Israel is a Democratic State ... We are Treated Just Like the Jews"

Here's one for the Israel-bashing Bowens, Knells and Donnisons of the BBC, as told to one of their colleagues:

"Israel is a democratic state. I have not seen any injustice there. We are treated just like the Jews".

To quote the translator and uploader,
'Sayyaf Sharif Daoud, a captured Israeli-Arab ISIS fighter who holds Israeli citizenship, said in a July 16, 2019 interview on BBC Arabic (U.K.) that he had joined ISIS instead of the Palestinian resistance because his experience of having lived through the Second Intifada and of having lived in the West Bank and in Israel had taught him that Israel "has not done one percent of what Bashar Al-Assad has done."
He explained that despite the fighting, Israel has never raped women or brutally killed people like the Assad regime has.
 Daoud also said that his father had warned him against joining Hamas and Fatah, and he expressed regret at having joined ISIS. 
He said he hopes that Israel will take him back so that his life can return to normal. Daoud added that Israel is a democracy in which he has not seen injustice and in which Arabs and Jews live together and are treated equally.'

    Refutes the BDS Movement:

    “The goal of the BDS movement...
    is to mis-educate students...

    The goal of the BDS movement is to mis-educate a generation of future leaders, by lying to them, by demonizing, delegitimizing, discriminating against,
    applying a double-standard to the nation-state of the Jewish people.”

    “BDS is part of a more generalized effort to destroy the State of Israel...”

    Jonathan S. Tobin said this about BDS:

    “BDS is not a movement that aims to merely criticize Israel’s policies.

    Its purpose is the elimination of the sole Jewish state on the planet.

    Its modus operandi is economic warfare, which given the success of Israel’s economy means it has been a colossal failure. Yet its strategic purpose is to legitimize discrimination against Jews and their state, as well as to stigmatize and isolate Israel’s Jewish supporters.

    That is why BDS is not only a form of anti-Jewish bias that is indistinguishable from anti-Semitism, but also provides an easy explanation for why acts of anti-Semitism soon follow wherever the movement pops up.”

    Martha Pollack (President of
    Cornell University in New York) said:

    “BDS unfairly singles out one country in the world for sanction when there are many countries around the world whose governments’ policies may be viewed as controversial...”

    “Moreover, it places ALL of the responsibility for an extraordinarily complex geopolitical situation on just ONE country, and frequently conflates the policies of the Israeli government with the very right of Israel to exist as a nation, which I find particularly troublesome.”

    Hypocrisy of the Anti-Israel BDS Movement
    by Mr. Cohen, 2015 June 7

    In year 2012 CE, the U.S. State Department’s Trafficking in Persons Report revealed 17 countries that still practice or tolerate slavery: Algeria, Libya, Syria, Sudan, Kuwait, Iran, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Papua New Guinea, Yemen, Madagascar, Eritrea, Zimbabwe, DR Congo, Central African Republic, Equatorial Guinea, and Cuba.

    Notice that NONE of these 17 countries suffers the wrath of the BDS movement, no matter how guilty they are of practicing slavery.

    Also notice that most of these countries are MUSLIM, which means that the Far-Left-dominated news media will NEVER give them even one-tenth of the criticism they deserve, because the Far-Leftists are the loyal allies of the Muslims.

    Last but not least, the Far-Left-dominated BDS movement will NEVER target these counties with boycotts, because the Far-Leftists are the loyal allies of the Muslims.

  3. Harvard Law Professor Alan M. Dershowitz said:

    “Where are your demonstrations on behalf of the oppressed Tibetans, Georgians, Syrians, Armenians, Kurds, or even Ukrainians?

    Where are your BDS movements against the Chinese, the Russians, the Cubans, the Turks, or the Assad [Syria] regime?

    Only the Palestinians, only Israel? Why?

    Not because the Palestinians are more oppressed than these and other groups.

    Only because their alleged oppressors are Jews and the nation-state of the Jews.”

    Harvard Law Professor Alan M. Dershowitz said:

    “And remember Black September [1970], when Jordan
    killed more Palestinians than Israel did in a century?

    I don’t remember any demonstration or BDS campaigns
    — because there weren’t any.”

    Harvard Law Professor Alan M. Dershowitz said:
    “When Arabs occupy or kill Arabs, Europeans go ho-hum.

    But when Israel opens a soda factory in Maale Adumim, which even the Palestinian leadership acknowledges will remain part of Israel in any peace deal, Oxfam parts ways with Scarlett Johansson for advertising a soda company that employs hundreds of Palestinians.”
