Here are some of the latest ways you can take action to show your support for Israel
Urge Your Senators to Support Direct Negotiations and Not Imposed Solutions: http://www.aipac.org/act/contact-congress/back-a-two-state-solution
//On Dec. 23, the United States abstained, and thereby failed to veto a one-sided, anti-Israel United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolution. This action, UNSC Resolution 2334, hinders the peace process by seeking to impose a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict instead of supporting an agreement reached through direct, bilateral negotiations. On Jan. 4, Sens. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Ben Cardin (D-MD) introduced a bipartisan resolution in the Senate that expresses opposition to UNSC Resolution 2334 and calls for it to be repealed or significantly altered. House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-CA) and Ranking Member Eliot Engel (D-NY) introduced a similar bipartisan resolution in the House of Representatives. Please urge your senators to support this resolution.//

Make the media accountable for accurate reporting; the Sydney Morning Herald must correctly state Israel’s capital as Jerusalem: http://honestreporting.com/smh-digs-in-heels-over-israeli-capital/
//In the past week, HonestReporting has achieved numerous corrections concerning stories that incorrectly implied that Tel Aviv is Israel’s capital city or center of power and government.
Media outlets that changed their text include The Guardian, Daily Mail, The Independent and Sky News.
When a request was sent to the Sydney Morning Herald, however, the response was a flat refusal to make any correction.
Currently, the story includes the following paragraphs:
If the SMH’s editors are prepared to question our determination, they should be reminded that back in 2012, HonestReporting fought a protracted legal battle against The Guardian for its policy of calling Tel Aviv Israel’s capital. HR ultimately won.
We are prepared to take this to Australia’s Press Council if necessary.
Help us to get the correction. Add your name to our petition.//
Show Hatred the Red Card – ask FIFA to stop Jibril Rajoub’s hateful campaign against Israel: http://standwithus.co.il/show-hatred-red-card-fifa/
//For years, the worldwide FIFA council has been the target of a Palestinian bid to expel Israel from the federation and denigrate the Jewish State. Chairman of the Palestinian Football Association (PFA), Jibril Rajoub has led this anti-Israel campaign for months. Rajoub himself has called for using football to pressure and demonize Israel:
“We’ll suspend their [FIFA] membership and this way we’ll screw them… I won’t agree to any joint game between Arabs and Israel.” [Jibril Rajoub on PA TV, July 1, 2013]
Furthermore, the PFA, led by Rajoub has been violating FIFA regulations by glorifying terror – naming football clubs after terrorists and holding matches in honor of terrorists who murdered Israelis …
The PFA also crushes any chance of peace and dialogue by enforcing a policy forbidding any contact and play between Israelis and Palestinians, and penalizing Palestinian football clubs who engage with their Israeli counterparts …
These actions perpetuate violence and bloodshed, rob children of their future, and hurt Israelis and Palestinians alike.//
Protest the anti-Israel bias at University College Cork International Law Conference: http://standwithus.co.il/university-college-cork-ireland/
//Another example of shameful hatred and discrimination masquerading as an academic conference: This March, University College Cork in Ireland will host the International Law and the State of Israel: Legitimacy, Responsibility and Exceptionalism conference. This conference is being supported by the Law Faculty at UCC.
Of the 47 visiting professors, all but two – Professor Alan Johnson and Professor George Alderman – have a clear record of anti-Israel bias. It is clear this conference has been deliberately set up to ensure pro Israel voices are in a tiny minority – a “fig leaf”, used to mask the blatant bias against the Jewish State, in an effort to delegitimize the State of Israel.
After being rejected by the University of Southampton because of its hateful platform and pernicious demonizing of the State of Israel, the organizers are now seeking to use UCC to spread their hate.
This clear bias damages the image of University College Cork as an academic institution as it deliberately shuts out voices of those it doesn’t agree with and seeks to push an hateful agenda.
Please join us in protesting this shameful event!//
Support Artists 4 Israel’s “Art Over War!” collection: https://www.facebook.com/StandWithUs/videos/10154335434437689/
**See the collection here.
//In the aftermath of the absurd UN resolution against Israel, Artists 4 Israel and One948: Israel and Jewish-themed Apparel are teaming up with a new initiative in which YOU can make a difference for those in need: Art Over War!
Artists 4 Israel took some of the world’s most famous graffiti artists to the border of Syria to stare down the rockets from their civil war. They painted a hospital which Syrian troops had turned into a spy base and which had since been destroyed as well as former Syrian army barracks. Our productions covered over years of hateful graffiti written by Syrian troops against Jewish Israelis with messages of reconciliation and peace.
The ‘Art Over War’ collection is limited to 2,334 pieces. 50% of the proceeds go to funding the next Artists for Israel trip. A4I plans to bring the world’s greatest muralists to the Israel border of Syria and paint giant works of art for the people living there.//
Support the small businesses of Jewish pioneers in Judea and Samaria: www.levhaolam.com
//We are Jewish pioneers in Judea and Samaria. After thousands of years in exile, we have returned at last to the Holy Land of our ancestors. We walk in their footsteps; living simply and cultivating the land that G-d gave us. We witness daily miracles, the evidence of the coming redemption, as life springs forth on these once barren hills.
As we plant and build, we face fierce opposition, in the form of economic boycotts, from those who don’t understand the significance and holiness of our struggle.
In order to flourish in this land pioneer families need to be able to maintain their livelihoods, distributing their creations in spite of the boycotts. In this knowledge we created the Package Project, a subscription service that gives you the opportunity to support the families in Judea and Samaria as you receive a monthly package containing unique handcrafted products from the Biblical heartland delivered directly to your door.
Your partnership will make a big difference in the lives of hundreds of small-scale producers, allowing us to continue making the land of Israel bloom once more.//
