Speak Out! Write a Letter to the Editor, Facebook Comment, Post

As a part of the Stand for Israel team, you’ve probably been following the news from Israel this week, both on our site and in the news media. As you undoubtedly know, a lot of news is affected by anti-Israel bias. All too often, media outlets “spin” news reports so that they reflect badly on Israel and portray Palestinians and other Arab groups as persecuted minorities. Even social media communications are heavily slanted against Israel and her people.

But you can make a difference. Take a few moments to write a letter to the editor of whatever publication you’re reading, in print or online. Or comment on Facebook, Twitter, or on your favorite blogs.

Here are few points to help you present the “facts on the ground”:

• More than 8,000 rockets have been fired into Israel since the Jewish state unilaterally withdrew from the Gaza Strip in 2005. Hamas and other terrorist organizations target civilians and make normal daily life impossible for millions of Israelis. In the past year, Israel has been hit by close to 1000 rockets; more than 400 in the past week alone.

• Last week, Israel responded by striking key military targets in Gaza. These strikes successfully targeted two senior Hamas military commanders and weapons storage facilities. In response, the State Department has issued a statement condemning Hamas and supporting Israel’s right to self-defense.

• Hamas is waging an ongoing war against Israel and deliberately targeting Israeli population centers. More than 1 million Israelis live within the U.S.-designated terrorist group’s rocket range.

• Since Saturday, terrorists have hit Israel with more than 350 rockets. Since the beginning of the year, terrorists in Gaza have struck Israel with close to 1000 rockets.

• The Jewish state, like every nation, has the right to self-defense. No other country in the world faces daily rocket attacks against its civilians, nor would any other country tolerate such violence.

• It is imperative that the United States continues to stand with its ally in the Middle East and support Israel’s right to self-defense.

    where was Obama all week while peace talks were being negotiated, he took himself off to ‘Burma’
    and let his sidekick hilary clinton do his job.
    obama cannot stand Israel. his actions speak louder than words. God will deal with him.
    In the meantime all our prayers are with the IDF
    and all Israelies, our prayers are more powerful
    than obama. (lower case on purpose) GOD BLESS ISRAEL.

    The United States needs to put pressure on the U.N. to do something about Hamas and its unprovoked attacks on Israel or find a new home elsewhere like one in Iran or Egypt; somewhere away from allies and friends of Israel.

    I believe that Israel has the right to defend itself and that we, the United States, should step up and give Israel whatever support they require. May our Heavenly Father continue to cover, protect, and bless His chosen and our brethen of the promise. We are united as believers who are the called of God the Father.
    May HIS peace continue to reside over the Holy Land and His Chosen. May we stand united with our Jewish brothers and sisters for the duration of this age into eternity.

    This is just a short note to let you koww that I support your cause every week. This week I finally donated on line. I call the 800-486-8844 number to donate. I kept getting someone who hung up on me at least five time. I believe that you have a technical issue that needs to be addressed. I believe that Israel has every right to defend itself and our Church prays for Israle all the time.

    The charters of Hamas and Hezbollah call for the outright destruction of Israel, and have now fired over 600 missiles to make that happen. It is nothing less than an act of war they have instigated.

    Israel has every right to protect herself from agressors and she is not the agressor here. As a Christian I will always stand for Israel to fight against the great evils that surround her. Many are the enemies who surround her serving satan trying to destroy Yaweh’s chosen;however, they will not succed. I pray daily for all Isralies that even though they are suffering now they will keep their faith in God and know He will help them. I pray the USA would do the right thing and get in quickly to help Israel (although we cannot depend on our secret Muselem president).

    The never ending conflict between Israel and the Moslems is not a physical one, but a Spiritual one.The “real great satan” will never want peace with G-d’s choosen people. Only their destruction. And it is only the Messiah, Yeshua that will end all the blood shed. Yes I stand for and love Israel, but only her Messiah will bring peace..therefore till that time I pray for Israel to stand strong, fight for safety, and heed not to human miss guidance or bow to international pressure. I will pray for you my friends.

THEY ARE A WHINNING PEOPLE THAT THINK THEY CAN HAVE EVERYTHING THEY WANT WITHOUT THE LABOR IT TAKES TO HAVE WHAT ISRAEL HAS. YOU CAN SLANDER ISRAEL ALL YOU WANT BUT I REMIND YOU GOD SAID IN HIS HOLY BIBLE “YOU CURSE MY PEOPLE I WILL CURSE YOU”.

    Its time for the United States to support Isreal and help defend her. The real problems here are those who support Hamas all over the world. Its time to send Iran a message its people will never forget. Lets call a spade a spade and eliminate the middle men and cut off the head of the snake. Its time for both os us to put the world on notice that we refuse to have any of our men and women in harms way. No more conventual warfare. We have the tools use them. We dropped the bomb before to save lives, its time to send a similar message. We are prepared to have a limited necular war with pin point accuracey.

      No more words needed here, Dan. I hate the thought of innocent people getting killed, but look at what they do to us and Israel. The thing is though,, it”s GOD who steps in to save Israel,, not the U.S. or anyone else. Israel has to know that it is Jehovah Himself who saves them.. but i think we should help in anyway we can,, especially by taking Iran out.

Rabbi's Commentary
The Rabbi Recommends: Rebbe, by Joseph Telushkin

Rarely do I recommend a book with the exuberance and enthusiasm I do today. The author of Rebbe, Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, was my roommate in Yeshiva Seminary when I studied for semicha, or ordination, there. He was then, and remains today, a dear friend whom I admire and deeply respect.
