(This post is pinned to the top of the blog for the day.)
I am proud of this blog, but there is a lot more that needs to be done.
During this quarter we redesigned EoZ for the first time in many years. There were some problems during the transition but they have mostly been solved and the site looks much more professional. I had to hire an outside consultant to fix many of the issues, and the experience convinced me EoZ must be moved to a better, more flexible platform. That means paying for a hosting site, paying for the proper add-ons and paying for other services like protection against denial of service attacks.
But while doing all of these things in the background, we are still generating content that you cannot find anywhere else. And we've made a difference more than once.
We publicized a textbook that included anti-Israel propaganda, prompting the publisher to pull the volume and destroy the copies, at no small expense. Our article about how the official US government visa site doesn't include the Israel flag was widely shared and reported, with over 6000 Facebook "Likes." We embarrassed the PLO to redesign their site after pointing out that the map of "Palestine" they used really proved Jewish ties to the land.
Beyond that we have done original analysis that has been widely shared, (and, in this case, used by the Wall Street Journal in an editorial.) We have delved into history to disprove conventional wisdom.
Every day, and in every article, we try to teach you something you would not have known otherwise. And we want to be able to do more of this. But in order to do that we need more resources, and that is how you can help.
So donate now to EoZ. You will be glad you did.
We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
