Israel is a democratic and pluralistic society with Jewish, Arab, Christians, Muslims and Druze living side by side in peaceful coexistence.
The Minorities Group aims to emphasize this reality by providing delegations comprised of Israeli minorities the opportunity to share their personal stories and experiences serving in the IDF/National Service.
Under the guise of human rights organizations, BDS cynically exploit minorities in Israel with claims that Israel oppresses and discriminates against them. The minorities group activists refute these lies simply by sharing their powerful personal life stories.
Reservists on Duty’s minorities group was founded in 2017 with the understanding that we must work in full cooperation; us, who live on this land and whom the State of Israel is precious to.
Through this group we learn about the lives of minorities here in the State of Israel, and provide them with a platform to tell their personal stories as well as their experiences in the military/national service, and present their perspective on life in Israel.
Our desire to recruit these courageous young activists stemmed from the understanding that they are the best answer to the manipulative and false claims of the various boycott organizations. Under the guise of human rights organizations, these organizations cynically exploit minorities in Israel to attack the State of Israel. They have created a reality in which Israel oppresses and discriminates against the minorities living within it. The minorities group’s activists refute these lies within their life stories.
As part of the Minorities Project, we are opening the first training program for minority Israelis who want to take an active role in defending our country in the diplomatic field.
As part of the program we will learn from the best lecturers, different facts and angles about the State of Israel, and we will learn and practice how to present these professionally.
