When the 2011 Global Peace Index ranks Israel below some of the most dangerous countries in the world: Libya, Syria, Lebanon, Nigeria, Iran, Mauritania, Eritrea, Yemen, Guinea, Sudan and Columbia, this is cause for concern. We at Act for Israel are making it our business to broadcast the double standards that are routinely thrown in Israel’s face. Besides this Peace Index, which is an a obvious one, look how the world condemns Israel’s killing of Sheikh Yassin, the leader of the terrorist organization Hamas compared with the support the United States receives for killing of Osama bin Laden, leader of terrorist organization, Al Qaida.
The double standard is shocking.
We need your help to make sure the Jewish State doesn’t get the short end of the stick come September and beyond. There is no doubt her enemies are trying to do just that. Egypt’s opening of the Rafha border allowing Gazans to enter freely will provide yet another test as to whether this passage will result in welcomed movement or deadly violence similar to the hostilities that erupted along Israel’s Syrian border and in the W. Bank, Gaza and Jerusalem on Nakba Day.
Yet here’s another. While Israeli women drive freely throughout Israel’s streets, turn your attention to the real Middle East apartheid. Women in Saudi Arabia receive jail time for driving. The countries listed earlier with one exception have one thing in common: they are majority-Muslim. Act for Israel needs your help to let the world know that we will continue to expose these double standards. After all, with over 57 Islamic states globally, why the fuss over one Jewish state?
