The World Zionist Organization´s Department for Activities in Israel
& Countering Antisemitism is offering a new service which allows
users to send postcards with Israeli flags and other pro-Israel
images via the internet. The website allows a user to select and
email postcards with images of Israeli flags, nature scenes and
Zionist leaders such as Zev Jabotinsky, Theodor Herzl, Menachem
Begin, and David Ben Gurion.
Yaakov Hagoel, head of the WZO´s Department for Activities in Israel
stated, "it´s 64 years of Israeli independence. As Zionism renews
itself, so does technology."
Eitan Ori Behar, director of the WZO Communications Center said this
year´s campaign is based on last year´s Fly Our Flag project.
In 2011, the WZO mailed out thousands of Israeli flags with car
windows holders and sun shade screens with Israeli symbols. Anyone in
the world had the ability to order a free flag on the WZO´s iZionist
"We´re changing to fit the needs of the day," Behar commented on the
2012 campaign. "With the advent of handheld devices, you can send
flags through our website." Behar said he is encouraged by the
positive feedback the campaign has generated in countries around the
world. His staff has been translating WZO material into different
languages. The iZionist website is currently available in Hebrew,
English, Arabic, Turkish, German, Spanish, and Dutch. Behar added, "I
hopes users will use the site to spread positive awareness about
Israel." (IsraelNationalNews © 2012 04/24/12)
