2. Israel Truth Week is moving into the next phase of its development. After producing three very successful conferences since our first in 2012, we are about to focus on a very special project (more below) while maintaining what Israel Truth Week was always intended to be: a unified ‘brand’ name and event listing service for people holding events held to counter the hateful Israel Apartheid Week.
Our vision was that people all over the world would hold their own events as part of Israel Truth Week, use our logo to identify their participation, and list their events on the site.
As of 2015 we will no longer produce annual conferences. We will focus on supporting others AND producing specialized training events where needed. Here’s the what and why:
a. It was always our plan to do this.
b. We prefer to fill critical needs that are not well-served and/or support others doing good work rather than replace or compete with them.
c. We believe, given the dire state of Israel’s reputation, that we need to focus on what we think is the most critical initiative, one that is virtually ignored by most pro-Israel advocates: destroying the false ‘occupation’ narrative and promoting a moratorium on all peace initiatives and land give-aways via our ‘NO PEACE WITHOUT TRUTH’ campaign. We believe that doing so is the only way to restore Israel’s reputation, and we see this as a critically underserved endeavour.
To that end…
So far, there are 2 great(!) upcoming events listed for 2015 Israel Truth Week (Feb 22 and March 15 in Toronto); be sure to check them out here. If you have an event of your own you want listed, check out this page..
