Gil Troy has written a blog post which appears on the Jerusalem Post, on how we should push back against anti-Israel propaganda. It seems that March 1st-7th will be a time for a wave of anti-Israel activities on campuses in North America. He argues, rightly, that we should be planning ahead instead of reacting after the fact.
Israel Peace Week is one effort in the right direction.
I’d like to do my modest bit to help, by hosting a roundup of posts on this topic (anything pro-Israel is good). Those of you who would like to contribute please send links to posts to my email, westbankmama at fastmail dot fm.
I can’t help but notice that the starting date for this anti-Israel festival is Shushan Purim – the day that we celebrate the Jews’ victory against those who hate us – especially in the Diaspora. Let’s use the internet to help battle today’s “Haman wannabes”.
Update: Today’s editorial in the Jerusalem Post says it all – it’s not a time for timidity on the college campus.
