The BDS State of Mind

3 Av 5772 – July 22, 2012

Yet their maximalist demand -- a flood of refugees, which would spell the end of Israel as a Jewish state -- is carefully hidden.

The Cult of Obama

5 Tammuz 5772 – June 25, 2012

Campus Activists to Army – Lone Soldiers Speak

24 Sivan 5772 – June 14, 2012
Dov Lerner, former ZOA president at the University of Maryland and current Lone Soldier in the IDF: “It is very different making the case for Israel on campuses than actually sitting on the border with a gun guarding the country," Lerner said.
