A positive approach to counter Israel haters on campus is called Israel Peace Week.
As a descriptive article in Aish states, the concept of ‘Israel Peace Week’ is simple: focus on a few basic messages, agreed upon by virtually everyone in the pro-Israel movement, and communicate them widely to the campus community during the week preceding ‘Israel Apartheid Week.’ Instead of avoiding difficult topics, the pro-Israel students feel that truth is on their side and they can tackle the Arab-Israel conflict head-on.
The messages are:
- Israel wants peace and has demonstrated its willingness to make painful sacrifices for peace.
- Israel does not currently have a partner for peace in the Palestinian and Arab leadership.
- Israel is a model of democracy, human rights, and innovation, despite its neighborhood.
In the line of presenting a positive view, it is sobering to watch a relatively recent Israeli interview with Melanie Phillips.
