Stop Anti-Israel Movements on Our College Campuses

Dear DHFC Supporter,

Arab Spring is turning to Arab Winter right before our eyes. Islamic extremism is on the move, and marching right next to it in a goosestep is Jew hatred!

But none of this should come as a surprise to followers of the Freedom Center and readers of FrontPage and Jihad Watch. We have been your early warning system about the sinister progress of the jihad, at home as well as abroad; about the intention of Islamic radicals to design a new holocaust; and about the way that America's fate and the fate of freedom itself is deeply connected to the fate of Israel.

Since 9/11, the Freedom Center has been deeply engaged in this war against Israel and America. Nowhere has the battle been more intense than on our college campuses. They have become the front lines of anti-Israel propaganda and Jew hatred. Lies about Israel's "oppression" and the victimhood of the Palestinians spread there like clouds of poison gas. The biggest of the big lies that dominate the discussion of the Mideast conflict in our universities is that Israel is occupying something called Palestine that rightfully belongs to people called Palestinians. This lie is so fundamental to the attack on Israel that I placed an ad called "The Palestinians' Case Against Israel is Based on a Genocidal Lie" earlier this year in the New York Times and several Jewish papers. (Follow this link to see the ad.)

This ad can put the Jew haters on our college campuses on the defensive. It can make their real objectives crystal clear and show that they want the destruction of the Jewish state far more than the creation of one for the Palestinians. This ad has already cleared the air. It can have an antiseptic effect on the toxic atmosphere created at our universities by the unholy alliance between Muslim radicals and the hard core left. These ads have an immediate effect, but to get these ads in 100 campuses papers across the country we need to raise $50,000 by Friday.

So can I count on you to help us raise the $50,000 we need to place these ads right away? Please follow this link right away to make a tax-deductible contribution of $25, $50, $100, $250 or whatever you can afford to support the Freedom Center today and to help get these ads placed. If you can make a donation of $500 we will place the ad in a campus paper of your choosing! Your alma mater, your child's school, a college you feel has pushed the limits of anti-Israel, anti-Semitic, anti-American propaganda... it's your choice!

This ad is already set to run again in the campus papers at UCLA, University of North Carolina and University of Pennsylvania. This week we are submitting it to the papers at Brandeis, Emory, Harvard, UC Berkeley, UC Irvine, UC San Diego, University of Virginia, Yale, University of Florida, Smith College, Hampshire College, Amherst, Indiana, Purdue, University of Chicago, DePaul, Texas-Austin, Rutgers, USC, Duke, Princeton, Dartmouth, Baylor, Wesleyan, Yeshiva, Oberlin, Washington University in St. Louis, and St. Louis University. We will continue to submit it over the next few weeks until we have run out of college newspapers to contact—but we urgently need your financial support to do so.

The deck is already stacked against Israel—in the UN, in the media, in the White House. Israel has enough enemies in the world without our universities and colleges—many of them tax payer funded—also functioning as echo chambers for Jew hatred. I for one have had enough and I plan to do something about it if you'll help me. This ad stops the Jew haters in their tracks and open up the discussion on the truth about the Mideast conflict that they want to keep closed.

So will you make an emergency contribution of $25, $50, $100, $250 or whatever you can afford to help the Freedom Center place this ad in 100 campus newspapers in America?

We have a chance to stop the big lies about Israel dead in their tracks. You've been a great ally in the Freedom Center's fights and I am grateful for your support. I ask you to step up one more time and help me get these ads into print on our campuses, where they can change minds by making a generous contribution today. We need to let our college students know what is happening to Israel. We need to get them to say with us: Never again!

Will you help us by making an emergency, tax-deductible contribution right away? For your donation of $500 or more, we will place the ad in a campus paper of your choosing. Thank you—David
