The most important show this year: How Nitsana Darshan-Leitner and Shurat Hadin successfully fight BDS.
Walter says: There are one or two conferences or symposia in Jerusalem almost every week. They discuss anything from medical matters to relations with Diaspora Jewry, politics and even climate change. Most are “talking shops” without the means to change anything, except to make us aware of the problems surrounding those subjects.
But: There is also Shurat Hadin, The Law Center, and its annual conference which makes a big difference.
One took place last week in which that important organization could point to a string of successes countering attempts at anti-Semitic actions and also very importantly the activities of international BDS groups.
Today: The largest part of this program details some of the successes of Shurat Hadin, their extraordinary work as discussed in their annual conference attended by former Commonwealth Prime Ministers, former US Senators, Israeli Ministers, world renowned international lawyers and military leaders with several extracts from the speeches.
Also: A report from the most deplorable action of a government body.
And: Good news for some Holocaust survivors.
