JINewsNet, the “New Voice for pro-Jewish and pro-Israel points of view”, has been established as a platform to encourage pro-active comment in support of Jewish Communities in the Diaspora and the State of Israel.
Over the last few years, effective representations from Jewish communities around the world to promote Israel in a positive way and to defend its actions, have been getting progressively weaker. Whilst organisations such as the CST and the ADL do a sterling job in relation to the security interests of Jewish communities, there is a distinct need for additional PR and professional pro-active campaigning, putting forward Israel’s political position to the wider community in a positive light.
In the UK, where the Jewish Community is small numbering under 300,000, it still has a right to have it’s voice heard. The present imbalance in the media needs to be redressed. With some 1.7 million moslems and with substantial Iranian/Arab government funding for their media channels broadcasting into UK homes via Press TV and Aljazeera, there is a massive imbalance in fair media reporting. The Iranian state funded Press TV channel and its website are a 24/7 anti-Israel propaganda machine, simultaneously promoting their fundamentalist agenda by a non-democratically elected Ahmadinejad viewpoint. Support of Islamic fundamentalist causes is continually spilling over into the mainstream British media: e.g The Guardian newspaper's website, is a fervent campaigner for anti-semitic causes by allowing all types of vitriolic and inciteful anti-semitic posts to be aired on a daily basis about Israel.
It is time for British Jews and those elsewhere in the diaspora who support Israel, to have a professional voice and platform to fight back. The Jewish Israel News Network aims to do just that and is actively campaigning in this field. We urge people to comment and to make postings to help put forward Israel's position in a positive way.
