Anti-Semitism & Israel’s Battle for Public Opinion: The Fight for our Future

Chuka Ikpeze

The Jewish State faces many challenges today: internally, regionally, and internationally. The disproportionate media coverage presents another challenge in capturing hearts and minds, and portraying the true image of Israel.

Anti-Semitism adds a significant dimension in the perception of Israel, in both its classic form and its newer manifestations. There is much we need to know, and DO, to secure our future as a Jewish community and to stand up for ourselves and the Jewish State.
*Chuka Ikpeze is a Nigerian-born American completing his final year of medical school. As a representative of StandWithUs, Ikpeze frequently speaks at conferences and campuses supporting Israel.
Ikpeze is a friend of Israel and had the privilege of visiting the Holy Land twice, staying for a total of three months.
“I believe we are living in a crucial time where the dichotomy of perception regarding Israel is more skewed than ever. The unprecedented rise in anti-Semitism warrants an equally strong stance against it. As a voice for Israel, it is a responsibility of mine to speak up in an effort to dispel the prevalent biases that unfortunately plague the country today.”—Chuka Ikpeze
