review of Thou Shalt Innovate: How Israeli Ingenuity Repairs the World

May 13, 2018  •  JNS

As Israel celebrates its 70th birthday, the global Boycott, Sanctions and Divestment movement has been propagating the idea of "anti-normalization," advocating for complete and total isolation of Israel, rejecting any interaction between Arabs and Jews, and underscoring that Jews cannot be or have a nation-state.

March 29, 2018  •  Forward

March 5, 2018  •  Ynet News

On October of 1967, Martin Luther King underscored that "when people criticize Zionists, they mean Jews. You're talking anti-Semitism!" This bold and unapologetic statement is something that you would not hear today from the membership of Black Lives Matter (BLM).
