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.
Meet Shulamit, she was born four years before the state of Israel declared independence. Her family lived in Kfar Shiloach, a village in East Jerusalem. Today most people only know Kfar Shiloach by it's Arabic name, Silwan, after an orchestrated campaign to remove any connection of the Jewish people to this area.
Shulamit was born on a bus on the way to the Mount of Olives, once it became apparent that Shulamit's mother was going to give birth, the bus driver told the passengers to catch the next bus. Tragically the next bus was fire bombed by Arab terrorists and several people lost their lives.
What Shulamit shares about the Arab neighbours she grew up with in Silwan will shock you.
For Palestinians, Dalal Mughrabi is a legend — a heroine — celebrated for having killed 38 Israelis (including 13 children) in a 1978 massacre along Israel’s Coastal Highway.
But when Belgium funded a school for Palestinian children in 2013, it didn’t expect the institution to be named in Mughrabi’s honor. Thus, when officials learned last month that the former ‘Beit Awwa Basic Girls School’ in Hebron had been renamed to celebrate the Lebanese terrorist, the Belgians immediately froze all funding to the Palestinian Authority’s educational projects.
The rich history of Persian Jews and the persecution they've faced. This is their story.
As we lead up to the memorial day for the Jewish refugees from Arab countries, we share the stories of the ancient Jewish communities who were virtually wiped out by racism, extremism and violence in the Middle East.
