(JNS.org) The Committee
for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA) has launched a new
website geared towards helping pro-Israel students “win the fight” on campus.
CAMERAonCampus.org, along with its student-oriented blog, In Focus, was recently launched by CAMERA’s campus department.
“This project grew out of repeated requests by students for a site that would provide them very specific information they need, with campus speakers, films, and books,” Aviva Slomich, CAMERA’s campus director, said in a statement.
The website will be a resource for students looking to educate themselves about the complexities of the Arab-Israeli conflict. It includes a “Middle East Issues” section that addresses many hot topics such as Jerusalem, the BDS movement, Israeli construction beyond the 1949 armistice lines, and more.
“It combines an array of resources including quick access to information on such pertinent Middle East issues as Jerusalem and the security fence, student work, our online social media sites of Twitter and Facebook, and our new blog, which covers news on campus, current events, and includes student guest contributors. The site addresses issues the moment that they come up,” Slomich added.
The website will also be a tool for students looking to hold pro-Israel campus events. It features a reliable database of speakers and experts on Israel.
A “Who's Who” directory will identify reliable speakers to host on campuses and connect students with key experts on different topics,” Gilad Skolnick, editor-in-chief of CAMERAonCampus.org, said in a statement.
