UPDATE: Catch Me at CNSNews.com and ViralRead.com

For those of you who follow my blogging/writing, I want to update you about my whereabouts with respect to this.

I started blogging my freshman year of college and have contributed to many places over the course of three years. I wrote for the conservative paper at UCSD (California Review), David Horowitz’s NewsRealBlog, The College Fix, The Washington Times Communities, TheCollegeConservative, San Diego Rostra, RightWingNews, and countless others.

I will continue to write for RightWingNews and edit for TheCollegeConservative, but couple it with two other outlets: CNSNews.com and ViralRead.com.

I started interning/reporting for CNSNews.com last week. It’s the Media Research Center’s news publication. You can subscribe to my posts here.

And I joined ViralRead.com as a contributor.  It’s slated to be the conservative alternative to Buzzfeed.

Stay tuned for forthcoming posts and articles!

Conservatives and Zionists: Support Young Jewish Conservatives

I have a new article out in today’s edition of TheCollegeConservative entitled “Jews and Conservatism: An Interview with YJC President David Milstein.” In it, I write about conservatism and Jewish voters. More importantly, I interview David Milstein – a colleague and fellow conservative activist about Jews moving to the Right. Milstein is the president of Young Jewish Conservatives – a newly formed group that caters to young Jewish conservatives.

Many are unaware of this, but Young Jewish Conservatives’ co-founders reached out to me and asked for my advice during the first planning stages.  I willingly obliged and offered whatever suggestions I could give.  That being said, I fully support their efforts.

You see, like conservative activism, Israel advocacy is a cause near and dear to my heart. Many of my dad’s relatives live in Israel and several of my parents’ friends immigrated to Israel from Lithuania. I live vicariously through them and their stories about Israel. Although Israel-haters will accuse me of being an Israeli propagandist (my allegiance lies with America, silly knuckleheads), many will agree with me that it’s good to morally support Israel.  In fact, we should treat this ally of ours with the utmost respect…Paging the  Obama administration?

Although I’ve yet to experience the Holy Land (I fully dedicate my time to conservative politics, so my ability to travel is limited right now), I do plan to go and visit it one day. It’s a beautiful country full of wonder and rich history. All the pictures I’ve seen and stories I’ve heard point to this. I’ve read enough to understand why Israel is unique. You should visit if you get the chance.

People always ask me about my support for Israel. First and foremost, I support a healthy U.S.-Israel relationship. Israel is our only friend in the Middle East, and it has a lot in common with the United States. Second, I support Israel’s right to exist because it is the only democracy in the Middle East. Terrorists in Hamas and Hezbollah want to destroy this beacon of freedom in this hostile region. Call me crazy, but I have no sympathy for the “Palestinian” cause after one of its proponents and suicide bombers blew up my second cousin  and 20 other  young Russian Jews in the Tel Aviv Dolphinarium discotheque terrorist attack in June 2001. When these militants  personally get under your skin, you cannot forgive them.  End of story. And third, this affinity for Israel led me to bring David Horowitz to UCSD in May 2010. You can see the infamous clip that made national headlines here:

Like conservatism, Israel advocacy is something I will never compromise on. As someone with Jewish roots, I’m proud to support a group like Young Jewish Conservatives. People need to understand why it’s important for Jews to vote Republican and be conservative.

To learn more about YJC, please read my article:

  Jews and Conservatism: An Interview with YJC President David Milstein

American Jews are re-evaluating their support for President Obama and the Democrat Party.  Although Jewish voters historically gravitate to the American Left, there is a noticeable shift in their voting behavior of late.

What best explains this?

Many Jews are disgruntled with Obama’s poor treatment of Israel. In 2011, President Obama called for Israel to return to pre-1967 borders – a move criticized by many for suggesting Israel return to “indefensible ‘Auschwitz’ borders.” This sentiment was affirmed in NY-09’s special election to replace disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner – a contest in a heavily Jewish, pro-Israel district. Bob Turner campaigned as the pro-Israel candidate and later went on to defeat his Democrat challenger.

Israel is not the only issue concerning American Jews. Although Jews voted for Barack Obama over John McCain 78% to 21% in 2008, the American Jewish Committee’s 2011 survey of Jewish opinion revealed that many are abandoning Obama. Here is a summation of the survey’s findings: Jewish voters disapproved of Obama’s job performance 48% to 45%, disapproved of his handling of the economy 60% to 37%, disapproved of his handling of immigration 49% to 43%, and disapproved of his treatment of U.S.-Israel relations 53% to 40%.

The War on Men Must Stop: My Thoughts on Manliness

images

WARNING: This post contains traces of sarcasm and humor. Please don’t take offense to anything I write, unless you’re a beta male.

Earlier this week, I was tweeting about the need for more manly men in our country. Apart from communists and Marxists, nothing irritates me more than feckless people – especially feckless men.

You see, in a selfish sort of way, I don’t want to have to pick and choose a potential boyfriend (and later husband) from a crop of wusses. When a female looks for a potential mate, she looks for a guy who resembles her dad – a guy who is loving, strong, affectionate, fun to be around, and confident. I want to look forward to dating, not babysitting – is that a crime? I know other women share this same frustration.

I’m biased when I say this, but my dad is the definition of manliness. Heck, HE IS the Most Interesting Man in the World – well, his lookalike.

When I say my dad is the epitome of manliness, I sincerely mean it. My dad doesn’t take crap from people; he lived in a communist country and went through (and later overcame) many challenges in Lithuania. He is a fisherman, general contractor, husband, father, brother, and friend.  If that’s not manliness, then what is? There are many men like this; they just need to be recognized and encouraged.

In general, feeble-minded men are a reflection of a country gone awry – a country vulnerable to attack.

That being said, you can read my thoughts on manliness and the war feminists are waging on it below:

“It’s Raining Beta Men: Why Emasculation is a Curse, Not a Blessing”

Harvard professor and Manliness author Harvey C. Mansfield opined, “We are attracted to the manly man because he imparts some of his confidence to everyone else.”

Manly men—past and present—have captivated the world with their talents, leadership, oratory skills, and virility. They are strong, protective, and brave. They are fathers, gentlemen, husbands, friends, and neighbors. They are innovators, pioneers, and model citizens. Simply put, manly men are invincible.

Great men like Ronald Reagan, Charlton Heston, Winston Churchill, and Clark Gable exhibited manly traits in their respective lives. They lived in an era where men were expected to defend themselves and were prepared to fight. Before the ascendancy of feminism, manliness was the gold standard – a virtue all young men wanted and sought. Anything short of manliness was discouraged.

Today, we look to Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu, Florida Congressman Allen West, actor Bruce Willis, and other manly men for confidence and guidance. They make us feel safe and comfortable. They lead us and represent us. They protect us from harm’s way here and abroad. Without them, civilization would cease to exist.

Alas, feminists have waged a war on men and continue to perpetrate it.

Feminists contend that patriarchy and its “male enablers” enslave women through marriage and motherhood. They assert that men are sex-driven, lustful pigs keen on subduing women. As a result, feminists are determined to undermine them.

Here is proof:

1)      A typical feminist believes men enslave women through marriage:

“Since marriage constitutes slavery for women, it is clear that the Women’s Movement must concentrate on attacking this institution. Freedom for women cannot be won without the abolition of marriage.” – Sheila Cronan, in Radical Feminism – “Marriage” (1970)

2)      A typical feminist thinks men are rapists:

“Male sexual aggression is endemic, if any sex act against a person’s will were considered rape, the majority of men would be rapists.” – Marilyn French, The War Against Women, Ballantine Books, 1992, p. 193

3)      A typical feminist wants to eradicate manliness:

“Only when manhood is dead–and it will perish when ravaged femininity no longer sustains it–only then will we know what it is to be free.”  -Andrea Dworkin, Our Blood: Prophecies And Discourses On Sexual Politics

In order to successfully carry out their agenda, feminists want “new castrati males” to replace manly men.

Rush Limbaugh famously coined this lexicon and recently affirmed that new castrati males are “men with no guts who have just been bullied by women and the power structure and liberalism in general.” He could not be farther from the truth.

Beta males greatly contrast manly men. They are weak, defenseless, and overtly emotional. They are uninspiring and deprived. And more importantly, they are subservient to women.

Unfortunately, these emasculated males have pervaded society. Turn on the T.V., and you see a guy crying on his wife’s shoulder or hiding behind her skirt. Listen to men talk about the so-called contraception shortage. They’re feckless and equally duped by feminist talking points. Watch beta males be berated by their feminist girlfriends and wives in public. It is humiliating and outrageous to watch.

When will the madness stop? When will real men stand up to emasculation and demand its end?

Fear not, there is a glimmer of hope.

Daily Telegraph recently published an article highlighting a new study that found strong men are likely to be conservative. It said, “Researchers cite muscle-bound Hollywood action heroes like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chuck Norris and Sylvester Stallone as evidence that aggression is linked to conservative politics.”

The article added that conservative men boast “the hunter-gatherer instincts of macho men – which are a hangover of out cavemen origins when the strongest ruled the roost.”

Conservative men must vow to defend manliness. Our nation was built upon the hard work of men, not wimps. With the lackluster economy, high unemployment, and destructive leftist policies already in place, emasculation will add to this country’s demise unless it is stopped.

Men: America needs you and your strength. Do not surrender your virility to feminists. Instead, work tirelessly to combat this attack.

Beta males – you will not go unnoticed. Let the reclamation of manliness begin!

My Thoughts on Turning 21

No more countdowns, no more impatience, no more waiting – adulthood has finally arrived!

Yesterday was my 21st birthday. I celebrated the special day with my sister and my good college friend. And yes, as expected, I had a couple drinks. It was a fun night; I wouldn’t change anything about it except to have more friends there celebrating with me.

In America, turning 21 is a right of passage – one’s official entrance into adulthood.  It is also an occasion marked by (legal) revelry. Fear not – I will not become a drunkard now that I can purchase alcohol. Instead, I will continue to drink responsibly (thanks Mom and Dad for instilling this in me!). As my “dad” always says, “Drink responsibly, my friends!” (Note: this IS my dad, who bears an uncanny resemblance to the Dos Equis guy/Most Interesting Man in the World.)

I’m relieved to know I can go to bars and more social settings for my line of work (journalism) now that I’m 21. It’s great to finally be an  “adult” now.

Adulthood comes as no surprise. Those who know me say I’m wise beyond my years. This is true. I got involved in the conservative movement straight out of high school, and have endured a lot in my life thus far. More importantly, I grew up in a very close-knit, stable and staunchly anti-communist household. You had no choice but to wise up early given our family history of torture by Nazis and Communists. (Thank goodness for thick skin!)

Turning 21 is especially important to me. Yes I can drink, but more importantly, I’ll  be graduating from UC – San Diego a year early in June. After graduation, I’ll be relocating to Washington, DC to start life as a post-grad. (More details on that in a following post!)

If I haven’t said this enough, I am grateful for friends, peers, associates, co-workers, and those who impact me. Without you, my life would be dull and unimportant. I am in this battle to restore our country’s greatness solely for the betterment of society. I cannot stand idly by and allow this country to become the United Socialist States of America. Your support, love, friendship, and respect inspire me to write, speak out, and talk about pressing matters. I would be lost without you. Thank you!

I wouldn’t be the fearless conservative gal I am without my parents, who bestowed me with the greatest gift of all 21 years ago: life. I am indebted to them for cultivating me into the person I’ve grown to be. Aciu mamyte ir tavelis. I love you both with all my heart. Thank you for choosing life and allowing me to come into this world. xoxo

Thanks for the well-wishes, everyone! I hope you continue to follow my journey. God bless!

CPAC 2012: Gabbing, Living It Up on Bloggers Row and All-Around Awesomeness

For those of you wondering why I haven’t blogged in recent weeks, I have been extremely busy with my senior year of college (blame those pesky midterms!), editor duties for TheCollegeConservative, and maintaining a social life (Yes, having one is possible at this reputed university).

Last week, I had the distinct pleasure of attending my first CPAC conference. I did not attend the conference in years’ prior for a whole host of reasons, but am grateful I attended it this year. I saw many of my activist friends, twitter pals, and met some terrific individuals.

Unlike most of my peers, I worked the event for several media organizations – namely TheCollegeConservative (where I currently edit and contribute articles) and Red Alert Politics. I joined my fellow TCC editors Zach, Sydney, Kevin and our star writer Christine in this adventure. What transpired can be summed up in one word: amazing.

Having media credentials at CPAC has many perks: access to a private lounge, opportunities to meet/mingle with heavy-hitters of the conservative movement, and refreshments…A blogger’s haven, indeed!

In between blogging/reporting for my respective media organizations, I was able to meet some distinguished commentators and op-ed writers. I met Washington Examiner’s Philip Klein and Charlie Spiering; Townhall.com’s Katie Pavlich; Tea Party Nation’s Judson Phillips; Right Wing News’ John Hawkins; Eye on Politics; Franklin Center’s Tabitha Hale; Misfit Politics’ Brandon Morse and Cole Streeper; Accuracy In Media’s Benny Johnson; FreedomWorks’ Kristina Ribali; Girls Just Wanna Have Guns’ Regis Giles; and many more. And my time in the media lounge (and at CPAC) wouldn’t be complete without seeing the gentlemen of The Other McCain (Robert Stacey McCain and Chris Smith), who inducted me into the Axis of Fedora.

CPAC certainly allows attendees to interact with some big-name conservatives, as well. Sightings that I can attest to? Fox News’ Bret Baier (Special Report)  and Jesse Watters (The O’Reilly Factor); former presidential candidates Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, and Rick Perry; UK MEP Daniel Hannan; U.S. senatorial candidates Ted Cruz (TX) , Daniel Bongino (MD), and Richard Mourdock (IN); Jimmy McMillin (Rent is Too Damn High Guy); Andrew Breitbart and Dana Loesch.

Furthermore, I was able to attend my first Blog Bash event. Set in Microsoft’s HQ in downtown D.C., Blog Bash boasted a fun and hip atmosphere. I caught up with my political godparents, Eagle Forum of San Diego’s Donna and Woody Woodrum – arguably the best conservative activists in all of Southern California; and my good pal James O’Keefe, who was flanked by his ever-growing entourage. I look forward to going to future Blog Bashes!

Another wonderful event I attended was our CollegeConservative dinner. Set in Famous Luigi’s in Foggy Bottom, the dinner brought together all the editors and nearly a third of our staff. It was great to hear and meet many of our talented writers. We wouldn’t be successful without them!

Of course, no conservative event would be complete without the #Occupy crowd attempting to crash the party. Those Marxists are SO creative and original…

Since I couldn’t attend Reaganpalooza this year (I am a month shy of my 21st birthday), I enjoyed a delightful dinner with some Hillsdale friends, new and old, at Le Pain Quotidian Saturday evening. My lovely friend MaryAnn (who interns at Family Research Council) accompanied me to dinner so we could catch up for lost time. You could say it was good ol’ fashioned conservative fun. : )

And my trip to CPAC wouldn’t be complete without a crazy travel or transportation story. Whether it was metro mishaps or dealing with airport bureaucrats, I experienced several awkward encounters and some instances of bad luck (especially on my flight back home).  My flight to Denver was deplaned after three hours due to maintenance issues. If I didn’t switch airlines, I would have been stuck in D.C. till 9pm local time. Fortunately, with the help of my mom, I was able to get a new flight through Chicago that safely got me back to San Diego before day’s end. (Aciu labai, mamyte! I’m indebted to you for saving the day and watching over me.)

Although bothersome, these detractors assured me that God works in mysterious ways and that all will work out in the end. When in doubt, I always remember the brave men and women fighting for our freedoms abroad – so whatever qualms I have about transportation or airports are  insignificant compared to their sacrifices, pain, and suffering. (God bless the troops!)

If I haven’t mentioned this already, I’m grateful to friends, family members, and cohorts who inspire me to be my best. I would be truly lost without your loyalty, friendship, advice, and reassurance. Look forward to taking this country back with you!

I will return to D.C. this June after I graduate from UCSD…More details on that development shortly. Stay tuned!

On that note, CPAC 2013 or bust!

Sound Conservatism, CollegeConservative Launch, and Battle of the Blonds

Today marks the launch of TheCollegeConservative–a new daily publication for conservative college students, by conservative college students. I have the esteemed pleasure of serving as one of three assistant editors and as a contributor.

The Daily Caller and FOX Nation picked up our website.

Here’s my debut piece entitled, “Of Principle and Pragmatism: Why Conservatism Always Trumps Moderation”:

In this time of great moral and economic peril, certain individuals continue to call for a radical transformation of our nation’s traditions, laws, and customs.

Then-Senator, now-President Obama championed “Hope and Change” and subsequently delivered class warfare rhetoric, socialized healthcare, appeasement, and anti-Americanism, to name a few. Similarly, Republicans—most pointedly, Republicans in Name Only (RINOs)—want to dilute the conservative message because “it alienates moderates and independents.”

Proponents of such change, particularly liberal Republicans, succeeded in undermining conservatism in 2006 and 2008. Towards the end of his presidency, President George W. Bush emboldened big government policies like No Child Left Behind, TARP, and billion-dollar budget shortfalls. Conservatism suffered a similar blow when John McCain clinched the Republican nomination in 2008. He was representative of the Republican Party gone awry: unabashedly moderate, disconnected from everyday life, and irresponsible in conduct. Without running mate and conservative champion Sarah Palin, McCain would have been a total failure.

In 2009, Ed Feulner of Heritage Foundation wrote about the importance of reconciling all tenets of conservatism: “I suggest that what is now needed is a politics of inclusion, not exclusion–no casting out of social conservatives or neoconservatives or any other kind of conservative, but a renewed fusionism that will unite all the branches of the now-divided conservative mainstream.”

After President Obama’s coronation into office on January 20, 2009, the tide began to change.

People united under the Tea Party Movement banner to reclaim limited government principles, constitutional values, and fiscal responsibility. Their efforts materialized in November 2010 after Republicans reclaimed control of the House of Representatives and won several Senate seats.

Similarly, Americans continued to champion traditional values. In 2008, Californians overwhelmingly voted 52 to 48 percent in favor of Prop 8—which defined marriage as between “one man and one woman.” Additionally, LifeNews cites Gallup analyst Lydia Saad on the ascent of pro-life views in 2011:  “Americans are rather conservative in their stance on abortion, with 61% now preferring that abortion be legal in only a few circumstances or no circumstances. By contrast, 37% want abortion legal in all or most circumstances.”

Nevertheless, moderate and liberal Republicans have called for a moratorium or the complete elimination of social issues from the Republican Party.

In a 2010 interview with Weekly Standard, Indiana governor Mitch Daniels said presidential candidates “would have to call a truce on the so-called social issues. We’re going to just have to agree to get along for a little while.”

Republican feminist Margaret Hoover similarly called on the Republican Party to drop its pro-life plank.  Hoover said, “If we don’t make inroads in the next 16 months, we’re going to lose the next generation.”

“People like you who try to divide our party on social issues, that is not the way forward for the Republican Party,” she added.

Moreover, the “brilliant” Meghan McCain—daughter of “Lord of the TARP” John McCain—has taken every opportunity to deride conservative women and social issues.

McCain said, “I consider myself a progressive Republican. I am liberal on social issues. And I think that the party is at a place where social issues shouldn’t be the issues that define the party.”

Recently, I heard the same rallying cry to hose down “extreme” conservative viewpoints at a conference. The male attendee—one markedly dumbfounded by conservatism at this conservative conference—bemoaned how Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum, along with social issues, are “too extreme” for the Republican Party.

The horror, the horror!

The question beckons: Who are these people to chide conservatives for holding their beliefs? Why must political expediency—not principles—be the sole path to winning elections?

In 1980, Ronald Reagan ran for president as a conservative and won. He did not pander to moderate viewpoints. On the contrary, he succeeded as President of the United States because he championed conservative ideals.

Renowned conservative thinker Dr. Robert P. George of Princeton University expounds on this by presenting the case for sound conservatism in “No Mere Marriage of Convenience: Uniting Social and Economic Conservatives.”

He writes, “Sound conservatism, as a matter of principle and not mere pragmatism, will honor limited government, restrain spending, and provide honest money and low taxes — while at the same time upholding the sanctity of human life in all stages and conditions; the dignity of marriage as the conjugal union of husband and wife; and the innocence of children.”

As a result, it is imperative to vote conservative in 2012, so as to defeat President Obama and restore this country’s greatness.

Throughout history, moderate Republican candidates lost in general elections. Next year, voters can select a conservative candidate—a social, fiscal, and national defense conservative—to implement real change in Washington, D.C.

Till then, I will cling to my fishing rod, anti-Communism, family values, and Constitution before succumbing to big-government, leftist and equally Marxist-Leninist viewpoints— so should you.

We at TheCollegeConservative hold no prisoners and will not kowtow to Cultural Marxism. You have been warned!

Continue reading at TheCollegeConservative.

Also, pieces by TCC contributors Domenic Gelsomino and Marc Seelinger were featured today.  Every weekday, we’ll publish three articles. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s batch!

I’d also like to thank Robert Stacy McCain and Smitty of The Other McCain for profiling my piece and our site. I couldn’t be more thrilled! Thank you, gentlemen. (If you don’t already read their website, I suggest you do.)

They had this to say about my jab at intellectual midget Meghan McCain. (Note: Snark is intended.)

You see Gabby, this notion of starting from any invariant principles and applying those principles to life is all backward. We have to embrace the notion that wise experts at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service somehow know better, despite the news that anthropogenic globalclimate warmingchange, like the rest of the Progressive project, stands revealed as a giant, steaming crock of. . .oatmeal.

And social issues like drugs and abortion are just another case of Maggie Is Right. We should welcome our new Priests of Baal just as much as we scoff at the notion of ideological purity (read: common sense).

Don’t let this here internet thingy fool you, Gabby. Just because you think you have access to better information does not mean you can reject the ‘wisdom’ of the self-appointed elite. They may be incompetent, Hoffman, but they’re all we’ve got, to hear them tell it. And Progressivism may suck, but time only moves forward, and that means our political ideas cannot look back, even if the ideas we reject were relatively superior to the dog’s breakfast currently before us.

You see, I’m not a fan of Meghead…er, Meghan McCain.

The girl is a liberal in Republican clothing who quips how oppressive and mean-spirited conservatives are. (The horror, the horror!). She always finds an opportunity to bash women like Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, and Laura Ingraham just to add to her 15 minutes of fame. She exploits Daddy McCain’s name and has no shame whatsoever. And she puts a bad name to smart and equally articulate blonds like myself…Thank you for adding to the negative stereotype, hon!

In all seriousness, Meggie, you don’t represent me, women, the Conservative Movement, or Generation Y. And yes, we will NEVER take you seriously as a political commentator.

Apart from my apartment ceiling suffering a massive blow today, this has been a relatively great day with TCC’s launch and Barney Frank’s retirement. Happy Monday, everyone!

Be sure to regularly check out TheCollegeConservative for new content!

Is This the Real Mitt Romney? Must Watch Video!

The guys behind Bad Lip Reading have released a new video. This time, they’ve put the spotlight on Mitt Romney.

With phrases like, “I’m a gremlin, I’m leaving the party!” and “Yo mama can eat me,” viewers see a new side to Romney.

The question beckons: Is this the real Mitt Romney? You decide. In the meantime, get a good laugh out of this:

How Conservative Activists Can Support Israel on Campus

Cross-posted from Young America’s Foundation’s The Quad Blog:

“For the people of Israel and America are historic partners in the global quest for human dignity and freedom. We will always remain at each other’s side.” – President Ronald Reagan

Israel continues to face attacks here in the United States and abroad.  In May 2011, President Obama declared that Israel return to her pre-1967 borders—a move that would make the nation’s borders indefensible.  Virulent anti-Semitism is on the rise at our nation’s universities. Furthermore, Israelis are constantly attacked by “Palestinian” terrorists.

The question beckons: how should young people stand with Israel on campus?

Conservative activists, compelled to challenge the status quo, can present alternative viewpoints to their student peers. Here are three ways to be an Israel advocate on your campus:

1) Bring a YAF speaker to campus

The best way to stand with Israel on campus is to bring a pro-Israel speaker to campus. Young America’s Foundation boasts a fantastic speaker list, including pro-Israel speakers like David Horowitz​, Nonie Darwish​, Dennis Prager​, and Robert Spencer.

With the help of Young America’s Foundation, I hosted David Horowitz to campus (UC-San Diego) in May 2010. The  famous exchange between Horowitz and a female member of the Muslim Students Association made Fox News’ Beck and Hannity shows.

2) Host a ‘Stand With Israel Week’

If you really want to impact your campus, host a week dedicated to Israel in March or May. Events for the week can include: building a Wall of Lies to counter your campus’ “Apartheid” wall, inviting Israeli Consulate Generals or IDF soldiers to speak on campus, and showing the documentary “Iranium.”

Foundation activist Mike Cunningham held a weeklong event at Purdue University and succeeded in delivering a pro-Israel message to campus.  Amid criticism, he persevered and held great events. Watch the video  here.

3) Write a pro-Israel Op-Ed

Holding a successful pro-Israel event cannot be accomplished without good press. Write a column for your campus paper or local newspaper to promote pro-Israel events on campus.

Foundation activist Aaron Marcus has been a tireless fighter for Israel at Rutgers University. As the “Marcus My Words” columnist for the Daily Targum, Marcus has challenged and equally succeeded in countering anti-Semitic, anti-Israel views on campus.

There are many ways to be an Israel advocate on campus. Start a CUFI chapter, work with Zionist Organization of America, or go to an AIPAC conference. The possibilities are endless.

Be sure to stand with Israel this school year!

Gabriella Hoffman is a student at the University of California in San Diego and a blogger for the Washington Times. Gabriella has hosted numerous conservative events on her campus and attended many of the Foundation’s conferences and seminars. Follow her on Twitter @Gabby_Hoffman.
