If you love Israel, you don’t have to feel helpless. Here are twelve things you can do for the Jewish State right now:
 Be informed – Learn the history of the conflict. Do background reading. Good places to start include: “The Clash of Civilizations and Remaking of World Order” (1996) by Samuel P. Huntington, “The Case for Israel” (2004) by Alan Dershowitz and “Stealth Jihad: How Radical Islam is Subverting America without Guns or Bombs” (2008) by Robert Spencer.
 Follow news of the war – reliable sources include The Washington Times (especially its commentary pages), FOX News, The Wall Street Journal (editorial pages), The New York Post and websites like Frontpage Mag.
 Put up an “I support Israel” yard sign — weather-resistant vinyl with metal frame, around $15 to $20, plus shipping.
 Wear an Israel lapel pin — Available for under $10.
 Go to a rally — Check with your closest Israeli consulate, synagogue or local Jewish Community Relations Council for dates and locations near you.
 Donate to Magen David Adom – Israel’s emergency medical services. They’re needed more than ever now. You can donate HERE.
 Plant a tree in Israel – Through the Jewish National Fund, for only $18 each.
 Become an Internet warrior – When you find a particularly useful news story, commentary or website, pass it on to your contact list.
 Write letters to the editor of your local newspaper – in response to a news story, editorial or commentary. You can find out how at the paper’s website. Remember, letters in support are as important as letters in opposition.
 Contact your local state legislators – requesting that your state legislature pass a resolution supporting Israel and denouncing Hamas terrorism. They might get help drafting from the American Legislative Exchange Council.
 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
