I ♥ Israel

I ♥ Israel was created to provide a forum for students supportive of Israel to share their stories and experiences on why they love Israel. Whether we appreciate Israel's environmental contributions, technological breakthroughs, amazing diversity of culture, commitment to human rights, or providing assistance to a world in need, we should all be able to come together and say "I ♥ Israel!"

Join our Facebook page, and send us your picture and a statement about why you love Israel to iheartisrael@standwithus.com.

The campaign focuses on Israel’s accomplishments in the following fields:

Environment -- Israel’s small size, arid climate, and lack of natural resources have helped turn it into a leader in environmental sustainability. From reforestation and alternative energy to water conservation and combating desertification, Israelis are making discoveries that are leading to a more sustainable world.

♥ Innovation -- Israel is a world leader in technological innovation. Israelis are filled with entrepreneurial spirit, having turned a tiny, relatively young nation into one of the most technologically advanced on the planet. Many things you use on a daily basis, such as your cell phone and computer, and things you hopefully will never need to use, such as two of the top drugs used to treat multiple sclerosis and an emergency bandage used to prevent hemorrhaging, were developed in Israel. 

Diversity -- Israel is one of the most diverse nations in the world. Israel is home to Jews from regions from all over the world, including the United States, Russia, Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, Ethiopia, Iran, India, Brazil, Argentina, and many others. Twenty percent of the Israeli population is not Jewish, mostly Arab Muslim, with smaller groups of Christians -- both Arab and not, Bedouins, Druze, Circassians, Baha'i, and others. Israel officially recognizes 15 sanctioned religions that are practiced within its borders.

Human Rights -- Israel is a refuge of human rights in the Middle East. Israelis, regardless of race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation, take part in free and fair elections, are free to speak their minds, have the right to a fair and open trial, and have the freedom of artistic expression. 


The World -- Israel's relationship with the world has grown drastically in the recent past. For such a small country, Israel does a lot of good in the world. Israel was one of the first responders to the disastrous earthquake in Haiti and one of the first countries to provide aid to the victims of the 2004 tsunami in Southeast Asia. Israel has hosted refugees from Darfur, Bosnia, and Kosovo, and it has shared life-saving medical and agricultural technologies with communities in need all over the world.
