Dear Supporter of Israel
An Israeli mother and her three children were wounded this week by rockets from Gaza. On Tuesday, 24 rockets hit Israel and wounded 30 people. Since Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005, Palestinian terrorists have fired more than 1,300 rockets into Israel.
The Palestinian response? More TV campaigns – this time with a Mickey Mouse look-alike – to teach children to be terrorists.
We need your help educating the media about these attacks.
Today there are huge and deadly fights between Hamas and Fatah. Palestinian terrorists are trying to draw Israel into their fight. However, how many rockets on civilians can Israel take?
The IDF may have to act firmly to destroy the rockets and the workshops where they are made. The media will come to Sderot and Gaza to cover this story. Your help can help make sure they get the facts they need to present the truth.
During the Second Lebanon War, The Israel Project (TIP) set up media centers in Northern Israel to provide journalists with sources, press briefings, background research, transportation, information on lodging and anything else they needed. Press coverage of the war was seen worldwide and in general Israel was portrayed as defending themselves.
Today we need to set up the same kind of media center in Sderot, the town being pummeled by Hamas Kassam rockets. We need to act now to make sure Israel is again seen as defending their citizens against terror from the sky.
Please help educate journalists and help protect Israel by supporting our work at
TIP needs your help to:
-Staff Sderot media services
-Fly journalists via helicopter over the attack area so they can see Israel’s security challenges
-Train residents to speak to the media, not only in English, but also in German, French and Spanish
-Create signage in multiple languages as backdrops for journalists’ video
-Shoot video which journalists can add to their stories
-Take and distribute photos to illustrate newspaper articles
-Provide researched background information hourly to help journalists meet their deadlines
Our Washington DC and Jerusalem staff are efficient, but educating the media costs money. We need your help and we need it now.
Please help fund our Sderot media center at Help us educate the press and the world – and allow the IDF to stop Palestinian rockets and protect innocent Israeli children.
Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi, Founder and President The Israel Project
P.S. We can’t wait for another attack to prepare this media center. Give a generous tax-deductible gift today at Israel and our global Jewish family need you!
Thanks folks....Cookie
