Israel Pride Week

A few weeks ago I put out a call for pro-Israel posts. I wanted to put together a roundup to be published as a counterpoint to the hateful lies coming out starting March 1st. I was gratified at the response, which came almost immediately.

First things first: The problem on the college campus. Jack sent me this link to an important video called Crossing the Line - The Intifada Comes to Campus. Great video, and if you want to sign up to help you can do so on the site. Israel Peace Week is an initiative to combat anti-Israel propaganda on college campuses this week. Click to find out who is organizing near you. Do you know who is sponsoring this week’s hate fest on college campuses? NGO Monitor gives you a list of the Israeli NGO’s and American organizations that are funding them (CODEPINK, the National Lawyers Guild – NY Chapter and Adalah-NY are just a few).

CAMERA  (Committee for Accuracy in Mideast Reporting) has its own site up with its answer to the anti-Israel propaganda. (Don’t get scared by the url address).

Israel’s contributions to the world:

The Israel 21c website is chock full of articles about Israel’s contributions to scientific research  in many fields including medicine and the environment. CityJournal has an article about Israel’s transformation to one of America’s most important economic allies.

Since today is Shushan Purim, this post by Shimshonit is very appropriate. Read about “dream doctors” medical clowns that are revolutionizing treatment in Israeli hospitals.

Soccerdad, a tireless pro-Israel blogger, was the first to send me a post about Israel and the small Pacific Island countries that are good friends of Israel. He also sent me this great post about how Israel sends help around the world.

Political/Historical:

For the history buffs out there here is an article by Martin Peretz about Zionism and the State of Israel. The Terrorism Awareness Project put together a wonderful summary of modern Israeli history and the truth about the conflict in the Middle East. Batya gives a rundown on Israel’s history and the reason why we live here in a down-to-earth manner (which I happen to love!) Baila proves that a map is worth a thousand words!

Its Almost Supernatural quotes an Israeli Arab diplomat who refutes the claim that Israel is an apartheid state. Emet M’Tzion has a post with pictures that refutes the big lie of “Israel apartheid”.

Jack shares with us some thoughts about Israel on the college campus - scary indeed.

Personal Stories:

Sometimes it’s the “little things” that count.  Nechama sent me this post about the “miracle” of some much needed chesed on Purim – how individuals in Israel can really make a difference.

Feel free to contact me with additional posts – I’ll be happy to include them here.

    I experimented with looking at your blog on my blackberry and the layout doesnt seem to be right. Might wanna check it out on WAP as well as it seems most smartphone layouts are not really working with your web page.
