Taking the Fight to Hamas — One Can of Tuna at a Time

Kevin J. Lipson

“Wrong-headed progressives spouting off about Israeli “settler colonialism” and “white supremacy” should spend some time with these fearless young men and women. They come from all over, and they are of every hue.”
In George Patton’s famous address to the U.S. Third Army, he told his troops that when their grandchildren asked them what they did in World War II, they wouldn’t have to say they “shoveled sh*t in Louisiana.”

When my grandkids ask me what I did to help Israel in the great war against Hamas, I know just what I’ll say. That’s because, thanks to the efforts of Sar-El — The National Project for Volunteers for Israel — I and thousands more like me have been given the privilege of volunteering in support of the Israel Defense Forces.

Since Hamas’ depraved and cowardly attack on Israeli civilians, undisguised antisemitism is on the march in cities and universities across the world. This disturbing trend is well reported, and it must be condemned unequivocally.

Less well reported is the broad international support Israel receives through Sar-El, a nonprofit service organization affiliated with the IDF. Instead of marching in the streets, Sar-El volunteers have been marching to IDF bases to contribute to Israel’s defense. It’s a global effort: since its founding in 1983, the group has attracted recruits from more than 60 countries.

Sar-El provides non-combatant logistics for the IDF, mostly packing meals, medical kits, and ceramic vests for the troops. Armies march on their stomachs, and Sar-El feeds about 20,000 troops a day. This frees up reservists to do the really important work — taking the fight to Hamas.
