HOW DOES AIJ DIFFER FROM OTHER ENTITIES THAT SUPPORT ISRAEL?
Other organizations combat BDS and other hate groups largely by disseminating factual information about Israel and its enemies and by arranging for leaders of those groups to travel to Israel in order to educate them on realities through first-hand experiences. AIJ applauds these efforts, but our approach is dramatically different. AIJ proactively fights back against organizations, institutions, and entities that provide safe harbor to anti-Semitism by going on the offensive and employing strategies that target these entities. By utilizing some of the same tactics that have regrettably proven successful at unjustly vilifying Israel, as well as many new approaches, AIJ exposes lies and hypocrisy and responds in kind. Instead of simply defending Israel from baseless attacks, AIJ subjects those who peddle anti-Israel and anti-Semitic hate to appropriate consequences designed to deter future incidents.
