PATRIOTIC ISRAELI

A Jewish Zionist Website - www.kr8.co.il
From: Kiryat-Shemonah, Northern Galilee, Israel
Founder and General Manager: Shaul Cohen - shaulc620@gmail.com

MISSION STATEMENT Patriotic Israeli is a website and online forum for news, information, and discussion that has been active since 2009. It aims to inform and educate the public on issues concerning the State of Israel and the Israeli Society, with emphasis on its struggles toward successes in the 21st Century. A lone democracy, nestled in a region of tyrannies and one of the United States' closest allies, Israel is a beacon for human rights, liberty, and equality in the Middle East. Yet, in world media and international political arena such as the United Nations, Israel fails to score positively. Reports and editorials about Israel often appear to be biased, unbalanced, and with verbal assaults well beyond legitimate criticism. Anti-Jewish, anti-Semitic organizations disguised under „anti-Zionism‟ from outside of Israel as well as from within contribute to the daily media bashing. Open, free, tolerant, and democratic states allow for such activities. However, Israel must also protect itself from those who try to destroy the delicate social, ethnic, religious, and political fabric that makes it such a model democracy among the Free Nations of the World. Patriotic Israeli's mission is to encourage open, balanced, and civilized discussions by providing a forum, allowing various voices from throughout the world to express and debate a diversity of opinions. The main activities of the organization occur online through its website: www.kr8.co.il and Facebook. Its English Section can be reached through English Section http://short.urls.co.il68/ukcy .

OBJECTIVE: The undersigned, representing Patriotic Israeli, seek to establish a new nonprofit educational organization in the USA entitled “Patriotic Israeli” and to obtain a 501 ©(3) status under the IRS code.

Patriotic Israeli is operating out of Kiryat Shemonah, a midsize town located near the sources of the Jordan River in Northern Galilee, that has continuously been attacked by the neighboring Syria and Lebanon since its establishment in the 1950s to settle Jewish refugees from around the world. We plan to expand Patriotic Israeli into North America and are seeking for volunteers who are willing to help in its operations in various ways. We intend to open a Section in English and to post articles, both originals and translated from other languages. Moreover, we intend to become a nonprofit educational association in the US and gain a 501 ©(3) status under the IRS code as soon as possible. If you are interested in our mission, ready to help and wish to receive more information, please contact our USA representative at: Prof. Ofer Ben-Amots, Music Department, Colorado College, 14 E. Cache La Poudre St. Colorado Springs, CO 80903. Tel: (719) 389 6555 Email: obenamots@coloradocollege.edu With all best wishes and B‟Shalom, Shaul, Arieh and Ofer
