The Israel Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), founded by Dr. Martin Sherman, is dedicated to the preservation and the propagation of joint values shared by the USA, as embodied in the US Constitution, and the Zionist movement, as reflected in Israel’s Declaration of the Independence.
Indeed, the IISS’s underlying rationale is aptly conveyedin the words of Justice Louis Brandeis:
Let no American imagine that Zionism is inconsistent with Patriotism.
Multiple loyalties are objectionable only if they are inconsistent. A man is a better citizen of the United States for being also a loyal citizen of his state, and of his city; or for being loyal to his college….
Every American Jew who aids in advancing the Jewish settlement …, will likewise be a better man and a better American for doing so.
There is no inconsistency between loyalty to America and loyalty to Jewry.
The IISS initiative is endorsed by numerous public figures both in Israel and abroad, who include senior members of the Israeli government and the security establishment, the British House of Lords, European parliaments and renowned thinkersand intellectuals.
IISS is a unique enterprise in the field of Zionist endeavor:
– It is more than a monitor – in that it sets out its own independent policy proposals
– It is more than a think tank – in that it is mission – rather than research-oriented
It can best be characterized as a “policy entrepreneur” whose efforts are all devoted to two mutually complementary goals:
– To confront, contain and counteract the “intellectual surrender” to the dictates of post-Zionist political correctness often reflected in the conduct of official Israeli policy-makers and in the content of official Israeli policy-making.
– To lay the foundations of a new assertive Zionist-compliant paradigm for the conduct of the affairs of Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people.
Please help achieve these ambitious but vitally important goals.
IISS has the message and the motivation. It now needs the “megaphone” – the ability to propagate its vision and ideas to as wide an audience as possible.
Please help achieve these far-reaching, but vitally, important goals.
