It often happens in the middle of an otherwise pleasant day — you encounter THEM - The Israel haters. They’re holding signs that claim Israel is an “apartheid state” and charge Israel with committing “genocide” against Palestinians. They’re calling for boycotts against Israeli products, and divestment from companies that do business with Israel. You feel the great urge to response, but don't know how to do it propperly, or not even sure if you should.
A new handbook, by Dr. Michael Harris, published in Octovet, 2015 gives people the information they need to effectively confront these extremists. It is not meant to try and change the minds of those protesters against Israel, but rather to let the general public hear the facts and be ezxposed to the Israeli nararrtive.
Dr. Michael Harris is one of the founders of San Francisco Voice for Israel, which is now the Bay Area chapter of StandWithUs. In his role with the group, Dr. Harris has made appearances on radio shows (both in the US and in Israel) and television news reports as a local spokesperson, countering misinformation about Israel. In his spare time, he is a pediatrician in Marin County, California.
