Stand With Us was founded in 2001 in response to the misinformation that surrounds the Middle East conflict, and the inappropriate often anti-Semitic language used about Israel and/or the Jewish people worldwide. StandWithUs has offices and chapters around the world and is dedicated to empowering Israel supporters with a wide variety of materials, resources and tools in order to be able to effectively combat the growing anti-Israel campaigns and speakers.
Israel's first responders head to Louisiana to help:
IsraAid, the Israeli international aid organization, will be sending a delegation of aid workers to assist the people affected by the flooding in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
The eight person humanitarian delegation is slated to fly out to the areas affected by flooding by the weekend. They will help Louisiana residents return to their homes to collect personal effects, and help to begin the process of rehabilitating flooded out homes so that the Louisianans' lives that have been affected by the flooding can go back to normal
Following a torrential downpour which has killed over 13 and forced tens of thousands from their homes, Israeli aid organization IsraAid is sending a delegation of aid workers to assist families affected by the worst natural disaster to hit the US since Hurricane Sandy.
How's this for contrast? The first picture is from France, a modern democratic state of basic human rights and freedom. In this picture we see police forcing a Muslim woman to remove her clothes/headcovering because she is not wearing what they deem to be an "appropriate" bathing suit at the beach - a policy causing massive uproar this week.
In the second picture, Palestinian women from the West Bank swim in the Tel Aviv, Israel beaches in whatever attire they choose, side by side with Israelis.
Meanwhile, Israel's detractors falsely accuse Israel of "apartheid" or other methods of discrimination when in reality, Muslims in Israel are amongst the most free in the world.

In addition to glorifying terrorism, she (not for the first time) rejects negotiations with Israel in favour of violence, stating:
“…negotiations will be held only with knives and weapons.”
