Time to go on the offensive

Lately, I have been spending some time reading the Twitter accounts of the ultra-Left haters of Israel.

They live in a bubble, of course. When they get into discussions with a Zionist they will make sure that the entire frame of reference is their accusations against Israel, and Zionists are put on the defensive. One mistake in their argument and the haters claim victory. And if the Zionists point out that other countries do worse things, they are accused of “whataboutism.”

It’s time to change the script.

Forget defense – go after these guys. Point out how hypocritical and immoral their positions are. Put them on the defensive and make them explain why Palestinians have rejected multiple peace offers, or why ethnic cleansing of Jews is not only permitted but encouraged by these so-called “progressives.”

I’ve changed a lot of my Twitter habits over the past few days to push things in that direction as well:

I have not usually been actively tweeting these to the haters, but that is where the focus should be – ridiculing them and forcing them to defend the indefensible.

And there is a lot that is indefensible. There are polls that show that Palestinians have supported the most heinous terror attacks, there is “pay for slay,” there are the other surveys that show that Palestinians who do say they support a two state solution only look at it as a stage to destroying Israel.

Sure, Israel needs to do a better job in describing its side of the story. But defense only gets you so far. Giving the haters free reign over social media to throw mud until something sticks makes the onlookers think there is something to their arguments.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
