Our Areas of Interest

Promoting the idea of normalization

As part of the normalization process and treaties with the Gulf States taking place in recent months, we find great importance in publicizing these developments and the values they represent to international and Arab audiences, with the understanding that normalization can counteract boycotts and the delegitimization of Israel.

Advancing discourse with international institutions and organizations

In past years, BDS and delegitimization organizations have been promoting anti-Israel activities in the international arena, such as the International Criminal Court and the Human Rights Council. We believe that it is important to present the Israeli narrative to these institutions and organizations, and to encourage activities and discourse that strengthen a positive perception of Israel.

Countering boycotts

Delegitimization and boycott organizations encourage international entities to take an active part in boycotts, divestments, and sanctions in various sectors including economic, cultural, sport, and others against the State of Israel. We believe in the importance of countering such activities by presenting positive viewpoints on the activities of the State of Israel, rejecting the idea of boycotts as a concept, and creating dialogs on these topics with diverse audiences and influencers.

Combating hate speech and incitement

In recent years, social media sites have become platforms enabling the exploitation of freedom of expression by various entities, taking advantage of loopholes in platform policies to promote activities against the State of Israel, including spreading hate content, fake news, and incitement. We believe that it is important to take the lead in this area, including initiating activities directly with the social media sites to demand implementing clear policies, performing broad and meticulous monitoring, exercising significant enforcement, and ensuring transparency. Activities should include advancing public media exposure of the phenomena of the hate speech and incitement, and of their propagators.

Creating dialogs with diverse audiences

In recent years, we have witnessed the formation of alliances and coalitions between organizations, groups, and movements with universal liberal beliefs and organizations working for the delegitimization and boycott of the State of Israel. We believe that it is important to expand dialogs, build alliances, and deepen cooperation with these diverse audiences.

Motivating the Israeli public

Israelis are the greatest asset in the fight against attempts to demonize Israel because of their deep understanding of Israel, their authenticity, and their knowledge of foreign languages. We believe that it is important to actively motivate the Israeli public to join the activities to strengthen a positive perception of the State of Israel abroad, and to deal with hate speech and fake news against Israel on social media sites.
