The Israel Ministry of Public Diplomacy and Diaspora Affairs put our a great pamphlet on ‘True Facts about Israel’. Here is a little extract and some facts that I read in it.
The opening letter reads: “In today’s world of social media and internet, opinions are formed and minds are changed by people like yourselves… Facebook and Twitter play an important role and are sometimes more effective than traditional media.”
It is now up to us, supporters of Israel, to spread the truth about the wonder of the state of Israel and all the good that they do for the world at large.
One of the most important roles that Israel fills in the world is that of providing emergency aid and assistance. “Israel believes in doing it’s part to provide humanitarian aid and assistance whenever and wherever disaster strikes.” Some of Israel’s recent humanitarian work includes:
- 2011: Medical Aid team to Japan Tsunami
- 2010: First response team to Haiti earthquake
- 2009: Storm victims in Philippines
- 2008: Aid to Congo
- 2004: Aid to Hurricane Katrina victims
You can help spread the truth about Israel through your very own Facebook pages, Twitter accounts, blogs or any other social media platforms that you use. Simply follow reliable Facebook pages and repost their news, or find out news for yourself from Israeli news sites. All you have to do is share the message and if one person reads it that wouldn’t have seen it before, then you’ve done a great job.
What are your favorite sites to find the truth about Israel?
