Summary: My effort to compile and share evidence-based information about what makes Israel such a remarkable, inspiring nation

The mini-documentary about my ILoveIsrael project

This 12-minute video explains the desperate need for new approaches to defend Israel, and Jews — and how ILoveIsrael aspires to help fill this need:


Until 2006, I was unaware of, and not very concerned with Middle East affairs.

I certainly was aware of the basic dynamics of their conflict, and had great admiration for Israel, and the Jewish people on whole, but was unaware of how incredibly biased many of the world’s most influential, advertiser-supported “news” organizations, “educational” institutions and “social justice” nonprofits were against Israel. I’d heard rumors to this effect, but was able to observe it, live and in real-time, after Hezbollah dragged Israel into a war in 2006.

I stumbled into this awareness, as a result of my inadvertent exposure hideous anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, pro-terrorist propaganda being published by the self-proclaimed “nonpartisan” news site, HuffPost. More on this in a moment.

This realization made me determined to find ways to use my analytical and creative skills to help expose and combat the mass incitement of hatred towards Jews & Israel.

Since then, I’ve produced an array of reports, documentary videos and infographics that have been hailed by experts in anti-Semitism and counter-terrorist propaganda.  See some of this work at:

My work experience that is relevant to my quest to turn ILI into a functioning nonprofit

A good deal of my work to expose the mass incitement of hate against Israel and Jews focused on HuffPost, one of the world’s most-visited “news” sites, which insists it is completely nonpartisan. Here is a 2-minute trailer of praise for my first major documentary about HuffPost’s incessant global incitement of anti-Israel and anti-Semitic rage, featuring voices from top watchdogs, including CAMERA, Clarion Project, Melanie Phillips and others:

As the years progressed, every time I saw a news story, blog article or video about the reality of Israel, that so few people are aware of, I put the link into a dedicated bookmarks folder.  Each year,the contents of that folder grew bigger and bigger, until, I began dreaming of taking the time to sift through the thousands of links, organize them into categories and sub-categories, and begin building web pages to house this information.

Finally, in late 2019, I began devoting some time each week to this task, but it was a long slog. My work continued as COVID set in, and the more I became familiar with the countless examples of Israeli innovation, benevolence & humanitarianism, it spurred bigger thinking on my part, that focused on one question:

(1) If all the information I was compiling was publicly available, why is it that I had never seen this kind of an “Encyclopedia Britannica” of it?

(2) What role does the absence of such a resource play in enabling such negative, incorrect perceptions of Israel to persist, and metastasize?

The result is the voluminous pages that you can see, under the “Why do people love Israel?” tab at, which together form the initial “spinal column” of ILoveIsrael’s content.

My vision for ILoveIsrael is for it to become the world’s premier freely-accessible, purely positive resource by which to:

  • Not just help to better defend Israel, but to champion her — proudly, passionately and publicly
  • Arm Israel-loving journalists, activists, educators and artists with world-class knowledge tools and resources, to help them to efficiently convey to the general public, and specialized target audiences — on both a proactive and rapid-response basis — evidence-based insights on what makes Israel such an amazing, inspiring nation
  • Learn about and connect with other Israel-lovers, around the world

To enable me to take an anticipated six months off my career to help set the stage upon which to turn ILoveIsrael into a funded, professionally-staffed, 501(c)3 nonprofit, I’ve organized the ILove Israel Seed Capital Crowdfunding Campaign.

UPDATE: A 501(c)3 has “adopted” ILoveIsrael

This means that for the first time, tax-deductible donations can be made to help ILoveIsrael, until it achieves its own 501(c)3 status. Learn the details at:
