Defending Israel @ OWU

May 31, 2011

Oftentimes, in the past when students talked to me about hosting Israel-related events on campus, I’ve gotten nervous.  In my short time at OWU, I’ve been confronted a few times with anti-Israel rhetoric and I never know quite how to respond.  I’m do not unilaterally support Israel.  At times, her government has betrayed her reputation, and ours on the worldwide stage.  At other times, the world has betrayed her, leaving her to drown in the tumult of political and moral tides.

My mother is staunch supporter of Israel.  She recently sent me this article about Defending Israel on (College) Campuses.  I hope some of you will read it and we can discuss it, and a pro-Israel program in the fall.  I think I’m ready.
