Advocate For Israel: Recount An Anti-Semitic Incident You Experienced

Friday night I was at a friend's house telling my friends from home about my birthright experience. One girl, whom I do not know well, kept expressing that Israel was unsafe, that she wouldn't want to go there, and she didn't understand the conflict with the Palestinians. I explained to her the root of the conflict, the opportunities for peace, and the military protections Israel provides for its citizens. Unfortunately, the history behind the conflict is not well known in the US. I felt proud that I could make a very small impact by explaining it to a few more people.
