Advocating For Israel

Confronting Israel De-legitimization

A keynote presentation and panel discussion featuring
Dr. Daryl Temkin, Founder, Israel Institute Alternative Energy Advancement
Mr. Jacob Dayan, Consul General of Israel in Los Angeles
Dr. Roberta Seid, Education/Research Director for StandWithUs

The past months have been filled with a rapidly growing number of national and international events aimed at delegitimizing the state of Israel. From Iran’s Holocaust denial movement, to the Gaza Flotilla incident, to last month’s Time Magazine cover story “Why Israel Doesn’t Care About Peace,” and the Berkeley, USC, and UCSD attempts to pass Israel divestment resolutions, Israel is continually and unfairly pummeled without end. Here in Los Angeles, the Annenberg Space for Photography in Century City recently displayed National Geographic’s disturbing photographic exhibit entitled “Water: Our Thirsty World,” that glaringly singled out Israel for harsh, inaccurate criticism and with a litany of classic anti-Semitic canards.

This program will be a presentation, discussion and community response to the negative portrayal of Israel and to the international movements to delegitimize Israel.
