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.
The leader of the Druze population of the Golan Heights is speaking up against a United Nations committee that accused Israel of imposing economic and social hardships on his community.
Dulan abu-Saleh, the mayor of Majdal Shams, the largest Druze town in the Golan, said the UN Economic and Social Council’s recent statement on the area was “a total joke."
“I don’t understand what they’re talking about, it’s laughable...[Druze in the Golan] don’t serve in the IDF and so far are only receiv[e] from the state... Why don’t they condemn the horrors in Syria, where dozens of children are killed daily? Golan residents have a good life.”
He also said: “Although we weren’t included in some major cabinet decisions on budgets, when we build and make up plans we never felt discrimination. On the contrary, we always found an attentive ear.”
Controversial National Union of Students (NUS) president Malia Bouattia gave a gushing address to an anti-Israel group in Gaza, and claimed to “draw strength” from their struggle.
Bouattia, who leads the UK’s National Union of Students, has been repeatedly accused of anti-Semitism and famously failed to condemn ISIS. She spoke to activists via a video-link earlier this year.
In the minute-long video, Bouattia spoke of her commitment to the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement and boasted of promoting the movement within the NUS – not long after the UK government banned public bodies from taking such positions.
The Palestinian Authority is doing all they can to avoid having genuine peace talks with Israel. From going to the UN with bogus resolutions accusing Israel of all sorts of blood libels, to suing over the Balfour Declaration.

The heart of the conflict in one video: Palestinian father yells at IDF soldiers urging them to shoot his child so it can be captured on video. As IDF veteran Leibel A. Mangel reports, "The soldier instead shakes the young child's hand. The father then tells his child to throw rocks at the soldiers."
A human life should never be less important than propaganda. Enough.
