These tours are essential for every Israeli who cares about the country’s future. Even if you know what goes on there, follow the news, there’s nothing like seeing it first-hand. The shame at being Israeli is greater when you see what’s happening with your own eyes.

Your work is extremely important and blessed, and the way you’ve been demonized is scandalous.
