Since 2012, I’ve been working as a writer, strategist, advocate and international speaker on behalf of my country, Israel. I worked on building campaigns, creating strategic plans, and using digital tools to help organizations grow and promote the image of the Jewish State. As many know, Israel is not an easy product to sell, but through my work I am able to make an impactful difference and encourage hundreds of thousands of people around the world. With this background and with a strong team, my consultancy company can help you.

Thank you for visiting and I invite you to be in touch.

UCL investigation

University College London has published the findings of its investigation into the events which took place last October at a UCLU Friends of Israel event, where protestors disrupted a speech given by Hen Mazzig.

Full report:

My comment, February 3, 2017, The Jewish Chronicle:

I’ve been a speaker and advocate for my country for over five years. I’ve experienced difficult audiences and tough questions but never anything like what happened at my UCL event

This week, UCL issued a report on the incident following three months of investigation, without taking any account from me.

The report is thoroughly done by Professor Geraint Rees, but it’s severely lacking in accuracy, as it doesn’t describe the horrors of the night in a way that does justice to how extreme the incident was.

It attempts to equate the actions of an angry mob with the victims of the angry mob and in doing so fails to acknowledge the true motivation of the protesters: antisemitism.

Somewhat absurdly, the chanting of the mob calling for violent intifada was described as a “legitimate and legal protest”.

To the credit of Prof Rees, he did note: “The only chant that was explicit enough to address was: ‘From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free’… this chant appears to be calling for the destruction of the state of Israel.”

One of the proposed solutions was to appoint an “interfaith champion” to consider “how best to prevent antisemitic and Islamophobic incidents on campus.”

This proposal is almost an insult to the students — and myself — who were threatened that night. It equates the clear-cut antisemitism motivating irrational hate and violence against Jewish students with “Islamophobia” — an issue which, while important, is completely irrelevant to the issue at hand.

It’s disturbing that universities are perfectly willing to tackle homophobia, racism, sexism, and any other hatred head-on, as they should, but when it comes to antisemitism they shy away from taking serious action.

Although I did not expect much from the investigation, I am pleased that disciplinary action will be taken against five anti-Israel students.

If I were invited to speak at UCL again I would do it, but not without fear of being attacked by students.

I don’t blame UCL for the attack, but the report is simply not enough because it doesn’t address the root of the problem — the cancer that is festering in so many universities, and that cancer is antisemitism.

 

Updates: January 2017

Sometime it takes a real violent mob to show their true face as antisemits, while attacking Israeli speaker, to make a real difference…  

 

  Britain government will become one of the first countries to use a new definition of antisemitism, that will includes anti-Israel activity. The UK Prime Minister announced this last month; “”It means there will be one definition of anti-Semitism — in essence, language or behavior that displays hatred towards Jews because they are Jews — and anyone guilty of that will be called out on it,” the prime minister said. May said it was “disgusting” that anti-Semitic rhetoric was part of British politics, adding that this was mainly a problem within “the Labour Party and their hard-left allies.” Read more PM May comments follow series of incidents at campuses across the country, most high-profiled was my talk at University College London. I want to congratulate Britain government and Prime Minister May on this strong stance against Anti-Semitism, Anti-Zionism, and all forms of discrimination. I promise that the UCL incident will not hold me down, rather encourage me to speak more and inspire others to do the same for Israel and the Jewish people.  

UCL Hen Mazzig Event Provokes Antisemitic Riot

Update: UCL to investigates the event. British Universities Minister Jo Johnson to Israel’s Minister of Public Security and Strategic Affairs: Universities must ensure freedom of speech to students, faculty and visiting speakers alike without having to hide events or speakers that they’re having. Discussions should be open, they are a way to try and deal with those who disagree with us and there is no place for students who threaten or use violence to shut down such debates. We asked the Council for Higher Education in the UK to work together with UCL, to ensure that the procedure concerning the lecturers of visiting speakers will be applied”.

My Unpleasant Evening with ‘Breaking the Silence’

hen-talking-to-soldiersOn March 31, I attended a disturbing lecture at Washington University in St. Louis. It was co-sponsored by St. Louis Hillel at Washington University and J Street U. The speaker, a former Israeli soldier with the group “Breaking the Silence” (BtS), misrepresented and demonized the Israel Defense Forces, Israel, and Israeli policy. BtS is known for bringing in speakers like this, so I could not understand why Hillel and J Street U had sponsored a talk whose only purpose appeared to be to misinform audiences and instill hostility towards Israel.
