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.
Do your cooking thanks to gas made from your own food waste: that's the eco-friendly solution proposed by Homebiogas, an Israeli company that has developed a "digester" that converts organic matter into biogas. Though this biological process has already been known for several years, Homebiogas has produced one of the first home-scale systems, one that can be installed in just a few hours.
Ignorant hatred once again being dragged into sports by anti-Israel activists.
"Last week, fans of Scotland’s Celtic soccer team staged a protest, organized by Green Brigade fans, against Israel when their team faced off with Hapoel Beersheba in the Champions League.
The fans waved more than a 100 Palestinian flags at the match last week in spite of prior warnings, breaching UEFA rules on political statements at matches...UEFA considers the Palestinian flag an "illicit banner" and according to the group's rules and regulations, bans all messages that are of a 'political, ideological, religious, offensive or provocative nature.'" The team was fined as a result.
We thank Brendan Rodgers, manager of Celtic FC, for his kind words following the game - and hope that the ignorant fans who sullied the spirit of the game learn a lesson in graciousness.
Remembering the eternal ties to Jewish Hebron: "Hebron is a hot spot in many ways. Hebron and its immediately surrounding Arab areas are the single largest source of terror attacks during the so-called Knife or Stabbing Intifada....Hebron also is the place of the Cave of the Patriarchs, which I visited in 2015.
Hebron had one of if not the oldest continuous Jewish communities in the world, dating back several hundred years at least. Until 1929.
On August 23, 1929, the Arabs attacked the Jews of Hebron along with numerous other Jewish communities.
But in Hebron it was particularly vicious. It was a blood frenzy in which the Jews were set upon with particular glee and slaughtered with knives, machetes and anything else available."
Fight back against bigotry and discrimination in San Francisco!
StandWithUs (SWU) is placing two ads on San Francisco busses beginning the week of August 29 for four weeks. One ad reminds commuters that joint Israel-California cooperation is "helping to solve the drought and securing our future." It directs riders to learn more at: standwithus.com/onlyisrael. The second ad is clear, "No More US Taxes for Palestinian Homophobia, Corruption and Violence..."
The SWU bus ads counter anti-Israel ones by SeaMAC (Seattle Middle East Awareness Committee) which began August 8 for four weeks and urge the public to boycott the only Jewish state.
