Justin Hayet (second from right) at the State University of New York at Binghamton, supporting Israel against anti-Israel attacks.

Personally I must say that I’m glad that there are loyal Zionist Jews on campus who are trying hard to defend the State of Israel against our massive, dangerous enemies who mask themselves in pseudo-academics, euphemisms, pseudo-history and perverse morality. I bless Justin Hayet with the power and determinism and charisma, which he’ll need to not only succeed but to survive unscathed. I invite him to Shiloh to breathe in the holy air and inspiration that keeps me going. Further searching shows that he wrote a previous article which can be found in the Jerusalem Post’s site, “My university won’t stand up for Israel.”

Fighters like Justin Hayet are no less important than soldiers in the IDF and all those so-called professional hasbara workers. I see Hayet as a modern King David who is willing to fight Goliath. His approaching Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman is very much like when King David tried on the armor offered by the quivering and fearful King Saul. King David rejected the armor. The Biblical King David knew that he would only succeed if G-d made him a miracle. He needed a low-tech, low budget weapon, and that’s why he took his five stones. And the young King David succeeded in executing Goliath.


I’ve been a blogger for years and also very involved with the international Jewish blog carnival, Havel Havelim. Maybe the key today is something similar using social media. Trying to get the Foreign Ministry to chip in may be as unproductive as King David found the armor King Saul had offered him.

All I can say to Justin Hayet is not to give up!

  1. First, blaming zionism for antisemetic attacks is like blaming the victem of a rape for being female and thus rapeable

    Second, The foreign minister would do well to remember that Jewish students around the world are at the front line of public sentiment and the public battle over Israel. Each Jew is an ambassador for all Jews when they go out in the world. That’s just how the bias goes. When Jewish students are strong, there is no room for antisemetic BDS. When we are weak in the court of public relations, the BDS fills that vacuume and poisons the hearts and minds against Jews and Israel. Roger waters spews his hate because some Antisemite got to him first. Remember there are about 15 million Jews on the planet and 1.5 billion followers of Islam who are taught we are the cause of all the worlds problems. It’s literally in their text books from grade school onwards.

  2. But I chose Jerusalem for My Name to be there, and I chose David to rule over My people Israel.

    וָאֶבְחַר בִּירוּשָׁלִַם לִהְיוֹת שְׁמִי שָׁם וָאֶבְחַר בְּדָוִיד לִהְיוֹת עַל עַמִּי יִשְׂרָאֵל
    דברי הימים ב ו:ו

  3. Great! I think that the Jews in the diaspora are just waking up to the bullies, bigots and apathy that has allowed the ignorant and the anti-Semites to feed the messages of hate about Jews/Israel. We have the BDS to contend with every Saturday, outside Ecostream in Brighton, UK. We have to make a lot of noise, write letters and express our outrage if we do not want a repetition of the 1930's in Europe. And we should all make Aliya!!
