Issues

Many people think they know the truth about the Arab-Israeli conflict. But on college campuses, in the media, and among many average Americans, there is ignorance of history and serious distortion of the facts. You may not be able to change the mind of a rabid Israel-basher or anti-Semite, but by finding out the truth about the conflict you can certainly help shape public opinion.

Peacekeeping

The UN devotes more time to criticizing Israel than it does to all the genuine humanitarian disasters across the world, combined. Only Israel seems to have to defend its very right to exist.
