Use your FOI initiative

Goals

Strange I never realised that FOI stands for Freedom of Information AND Friends of Israel and both are right.

From the Friends of Israel Website

The goal of the Initiative is threefold:

  • To open a space in the public arena to talk about Israel in a reasoned and sober manner. It will be the first time that a high level group in Europe formally expresses the conviction that Israel should be viewed and treated as a normal democratic country. We believe this will be very significant, particularly in the media where irrational criticism of Israel has now captured much of the mainstream.
  • To provide a mechanism, based on personal contacts, to influence and help serving political leaders that are pro-Israel by conviction but who feel stymied by the anti-Israeli dispositions of so many inside their own administrations and the broader political and media domains beyond.
  • To help all friends of Israel, primarily in Europe but also elsewhere, who currently find themselves isolated and disconnected to be part of a powerful and growing network of  like minded people.

I wish I had written that myself but as I didn’t I’ll do the next best thing and link.
