Steven Shamrak runs a weekly newsletter covering Israeli and Jewish issues with 15,000 subscribers.
His website @ http://shamrak.com and newsletter aim to …
build support among both the Jewish and non-Jewish community, regardless of their political and belief affiliation, in order to help them become active defenders and propagators of the Jewish National Goal – Eretz-Israel – the Land of Israel.
He writes that …
Israel is the front-line of defence in the global war between Wahabism, the philosophy of Islamicexpansionism, and the world of Infidels! The war is energised by continually fostering hatred toward Israel and the Western countries by Muslim radical leadership. This is a war between civilisations! This is not just a Jewish problem.
As a strong supporter of Israel, I couldn’t agree more!
- There are 21 Arab countries in the Middle East and
only one Jewish state: Israel, which is also the
only democracy in the region.
- Israel is the only country in the region that
permits citizens of all faiths to worship freely and openly.
Twenty percent of Israeli citizens are not Jewish.
- While Jews are not permitted to live in many Arab countries,
Arabs are granted full citizenship and have the right to
vote in Israel.
- Arabs are also free to become members of the Israeli parliament (the Knesset). In fact, several Arabs have been democratically
elected to the Knesset and have been serving there for years.
- Arabs living in Israel have more rights and are freer
than most Arabs living in Arab countries.
- [Israel is the] only democracy in the Middle East.
Vibrant and prosperous, with robust economic growth
over the last five years, the highest number of books
published per capita in the world, and second place
in the world in the publication of articles in scientific journals
- Small and democratic Israel is alone in gigantic
“Neighborhood of Evil”, the world’s highest concentration of vicious & terror-supporting regimes.
- Half of the world’s major terror groups have anti-Israeli
- Most of the Arab world and Iran do not recognize Israel’s right to exist
And now have a look at the size of Israel …
… compared to Australia:
… compared to the Arab world:

I have always said:
“Tell me what a person thinks about America and Israel
and I’ll tell you what they really think about freedom.”
Come along and hear what Steven Shamrak has to say about a vital issue that affects us all.
The word “Israel” comes from the Hebrew “yisra’el” which means “he that striveth with God” or “God has striven, God has saved”
The story of Zionism and Israel is not just a story about the Jews.
It’s a story about mankind’s relentless search for liberty and justice.
A world in which Israel is safe is a safe world for all.
