Yesterday I was invited to Trinity Western University by the Campus Conservative Club. Rebel viewers are likely familiar with their fight in the courts against anti-Christian social justice warriors trying to shut it down, but I was there for another reason.
I was on their campus to hear a very special speaker from Israel.
The speaker was Nati Rom, a pioneer from Judea and Samaria, an area which is referred to by most of the international community as the West Bank, and “pioneer”, then is what that same community would refer to as a “settler”.
You may recall late last year when the UN passed the very controversial resolution that condemned Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria as illegal, breaking the longstanding US tradition of defending their best friend Israel’s right to exist and have communities in Judea and Samaria.
Beyond the recent actions of the Obama administration and the UN, there has been an active campaign amongst the regressive anti-semitic left in the western world known as BDS, or Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions.
BDS affects entrepreneurship, business investment and the economic outlook of many Israelis and Israeli businesses, and in Judea and Samaria in particular, the boycott can have a significant impact.
Nati is fighting back, not only by speaking around the world but by starting his own company called Lev Haolam or the "Heart of the World."
It allows anyone supportive of Israel around the world to buy items made and produced by Israeli’s in Judea and Samaria every month and know they are directly fighting back against BDS.
Watch as I discuss this initiative and other challenges facing Israel, with Nati.
