Dozens of Arab and radical-left students have been holding a ceremony in commemoration of the “Nakba,” a day that marks the Arab failure to destroy the nascent Jewish state in 1948.
Dozens of Im Tirtzu activists together with activists from other Zionist movements arrived and protested the very fact of such an event being held at Tel-Aviv University. During the ceremony Im Tirtzu activists waved Israeli flags and distributed “Nakba Nonsense” booklets, which expose the truth surrounding the distorted narrative of the Nakba.
Im Tirtzu activists brought a 15-foot tall inflatable Pinocchio doll designed to emphasize the lie of the Nakba that the radical-left has attempted to instill in the public consciousness.
Im Tirtzu’s CEO, Matan Peleg, said at the protest that “the goal of these radical-left organizations is to create an atmosphere of guilt within Israeli society about Israel’s victory in the War of Independence; this in order to undermine from within the very existence of the State of Israel. In the face of such an hypocritical anti-Israel event that aims to rewrite history, and which ultimately calls for the destruction of Israel, we must display Israeli pride and faith in the righteousness of our cause.”
Peleg added, “We cannot afford the luxury of allowing this anti-Israel propaganda to go unchallenged. It is already widespread throughout the world, and is embedded within Israel backed by foreign political funds. We will continue to fight against this phenomenon with all the means at our disposal, without fear, and with a sense of great responsibility.”David Israel
