EDUCATION HAS NEVER BEEN MORE IMPORTANT THAN NOW WHY SO? AND HOW DO WE GO ABOUT IT?
STARTING SOON WE ARE EMBARKING ON A SOCIAL MEDIA BLITZ.
Our goal is to bring wider awareness to facts about Israel’s rights as contained in our book:
The Jewish People’s Rights to the Land of Israel
By serializing the contents of the book, via our “DID YOU KNOW?” Series, we hope to attract social media fans who wish to learn more about the rights of Israel so they can stand up to the deniers.
We encourage everyone to use #WhatOccupation when sharing or replying to our posts.
Let’s Make the truth go Viral!
See our Introduction and first post!
We spare no effort towards educating Jews and non-Jews about the biblical, historical and legal rights of Israel.
The next step is to create a series of five, 2-minute videos. We envision that each video willfocus on a different aspect of Israel rights, drawn from our book The Jewish People's Rights to the Land of Israel by Salomon Benzimra.
This video series will be posted on our Social Media pages, on our website to our E-list, and our YouTube page. And from there it will be shared widely with youth organizations, educators, students and the general public. It will be added to our Educational Package, and shared with many NGOs -- Friends and collaborators with our organization; those involved in student education, and those defending the rights and legitimacy of Israel. With the raging outburst of renewed anti-Semitism / anti-Zionism, our first and foremost task is to fight this pernicious poison, with every means at our disposal. Our main focus will be on standing up fearlessly to the Jew-Haters and Israel-Haters, who are fabricating ever growing Orwellian lies about the Jewish people. Our quest is to bring Truth and Facts about Israel to the world at large. While others deny and demonize Israel, we will task youth with the role of ambassadors, to carry forth the knowledge we provide. With the UN’s newest “Commission of Inquiry”, politicizing/weaponizing international law, it is our duty to challenge and debunk The Occupation Lie and other lies, until truth will prevail. With the knowledge we impart, we seek to empower youth and all, to go forth and impact the world.
Our heartfelt Mazel Tov, to our beloved friend, Max Eisen on his appointment to the Order of Canada.
Max has dedicated all the years after his liberation from the Holocaust to bring awareness about those horrors to thousands of students, through his personal experience. The impact is sure to have influenced many youngsters, to become better people, and be actors who stand up to evil.
PLEASE STAY TUNED FOR MORE ON OUR AGENDA
The UK Lawyers for Israel - UKLFI, Board of Directors, is pleased that Goldi Steiner – Founder and Co-Chair of Canadians for Israel’s Legal Rights, has become one of its Associate Members.
SELECTED COMMENTS BY OUR READERS:
From Marggie Telegdi Smith:
….”I think Israel’s big mistake was 1) not keeping the Temple Mount 2) giving away Gush Kativ, 3) not keeping Judea / Samaria. Thus arming the PA police, and therefore the PA.
…. I think that every time Gaza shoots at Israel, Israel should take 10 km of land from Gaza.
…. Why not support the Arab Christians…..they are being terrorized by thePA ….. most moved away from Bethlehem once Israel gave it up.”
From Dr. David Nussbaum:
The Toronto Star's recent article, "Gaza's Old Battery Pileups Pose Risks" by Fares Akram, December 30, 2021, presents the Star's readership with a convoluted, but not atypical or unexpected, mis-contextualization of the reality.
“Gaza's two neighbors, Egypt and Israel, restrict only materials used by the oppressive, totalitarian and anti-democratic terrorist Hamas regime to engage in politically motivated violence…..
Had Hamas used those supplies and the millions upon millions of dollars they receive annually from foreign taxpayers to build modern, functional electrical generators, Gazans would not need to rely on environmentally hazardous batteries for everyday energy needs……..

What Will Our Children Learn About Israel? This year, I will always try to promote CILR. I believe that 90% of contemporary antisemitism channels through the Three-Point Palestinian Mythology of Israel 1) originating as an Imperialist Occupying Power, 2)functioning as an "Apartheid" State and 3) committing "genocide" on the“indigenous”"Palestinian" people (whose population numbers they tell us are continually rising.)
They then use this propaganda to alienate people, including ignorant, and especially left-leaning Jews, from positively identifying with and supporting Israel. After all, would you want to support a genocidal country just because you share a set of genes with them? Why, that's what those nasty German people did, so if you continue to support Israel, you are no better than them.
Not complex at all. The fact that it is a based on B.S. doesn't phase them because they don't believe that truth exists beyond their "revolutionary" or "jihadist" cause. The most efficient way of dismantling the entire structure is to effectively repudiate the foundational planks of the myth.
FROM THE GOOD NEWS CORNER
Saudi Zionist aims to change Jewish State’s image in Arab world.
The signing of the historic Abraham Accords in August 2020, which normalized relations between Israel, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain, signaled a new era in Middle East politics.
Two of the most powerful and influential countries in the Gulf had openly stated they were willing to maintain trade and diplomatic relationships with the Jewish State, despite the Palestinian issue – a policy which had previously been unthinkable. Read More
