The Blue and White Logo Signifies 'I Am Made In Israel'
Sharing Israel with prideAt the end of the 20th Century and during the first part of the 21st Century, Israel has invented and created some amazing and of the best technologies. The produce and the array of food products she exports worldwide are amongst the best in the world. Yet, Israel has not been able to fully accredit her phenomenal achievements.
Only when Israel finally recognizes her, all around, strength, being 'the best in so many fields', and owns this fact, the delegitimization issue she is facing and fighting will no longer be effective. The United Nations (UN), the European Union (UN) and all other pro-anti Israel dogmas will no longer be able to brand the Jewish state a pariah state.
As a whole, the majority of individuals in the world are not obsessed with Israel in any way. Family 'stuff', work and sports, amongst thousands of other matters take a much higher priority than to worry what the State of Israel is or is not doing. In that case, when the vast majority of the population, of most countries, start noticing a new tag, or label, on the electronic items or the food and produce items they are seeing and buying in the stores, new awareness will enter their subconscious.
When the public will see a small, blue and white shape, on each item, that means it was made or developed in Israel, all of a sudden, not only they will be educated how much Israel is involved in world economy, but they will start developing a positive association with the Jewish State Israel. They may not be interested in wars, Israeli and/or Arab-"Palestinian" issues, but just like that little Intel chip logo, when they start seeing the 'Made in Israel' logo, on more and more of what they purchase and use, that is a pretty powerful and positive association, isn't it?
No need for the art of words, no need for pictures, just a small, blue and white logo, will do the talking and the seeing. I am certain the blue and white logo will eventually become more recognizable than the Intel logo.
Instead of Israel being worried and afraid of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanction (BDS) Campaigns, simply challenge them to get along without products with an Israeli connection. Be proud of what is invented and is made in Israel and trust that people want to buy the best products available and they are smart enough to know that Israeli products are good and the Israeli People are the good guys.
Instead of being afraid of that small BDS group, made of loud noisy na´ve impressionable radicals, who were sold a pack of distortion, half truths and lies by the very same groups who have kept the Arab-"Palestinians" in squalor, as a 'showcase' for political cause and propaganda, Israel must trust the majority of the population who know better and finally let the truth win right out. Yes, It is true, the Israelis are and always have been the good guys.
The Government of Israel, wake up! You need to stop selling Israeli goods to the Arab nations under a disguise. Your technology and quality of goods is too valuable to be hidden and kept under the radar. If the Arabs do not want to buy the best, let them buy from others. The choice is theirs. You also know that there are many items they cannot buy from anyone else in the world, therefore, why allow them to make you small, insignificant and belittle you?
Israel must announce and proudly display what she has created. Simply put a small emblem on every single product that, as much as even, contains one part that was developed or produced in Israel.
Israel must proudly brand its accomplishments. If the Arabs, the anti-Semites and the hypocrites of all sorts can make a better product or food item, let them try. But let the brand of 'Made In Israel' stand proudly behind all the good things the State of Israel shares with the world.
Let every medical device or medicine, every piece of technology, together with every piece of food or produce, from oranges and cucumbers, to tomatoes and apples, and even flowers, be the symbol of the Israeli Parliament-Knesset and the Jewish Nation they represent.
If an Israeli part, whether invented or produced, is inside a telephone, whether Panasonic or Motorola, or a computer, simply rewrite the marketing contract that must mandate to display the Israeli Parliament-Knesset Symbol on the device and the packaging, and that mandate must be non-negotiable, as it is a mandate from the government of Israel. Enough is enough already. End walking in the mist.
Let these symbols proudly announce 'I Am From Israel,' 'I Am What The Jewish People Give To The World.'
Isn't this a better, more productive and probably more effective way, than trying to fight the boycott and divestment and the useful idiots on the Left camps, both within Israel and the Diaspora?
If an Arab country does not permit an Israeli passport holder, or even an individual, carrying a passport stamped by Israel's custom authorities to enter into their country, let alone products made in Israel, let them know they are the ones who are missing out because of the bias and wrongful politics.
Israel is Proud who she is, what she stands for and what she does.
Israel must list the aid it gives to the Arab-"Palestinians", together with the commerce it provides.
Israel is loved when it is strong; remember the Six Day War victory, the mission impossible rescue from Entebbe, the elimination of the Osirak reactor on Iraqi, to name a few. Israel's medical corp. was the first to arrive in earthquake stricken Haiti where they opened the first filed hospital and Israeli invention had much to do with saving the life of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Make the awareness of Israel's contribution to everyone's life so well known that her enemies cannot hide behind their lies, like, for instance, the farce so many adopted that Israel is causing humanitarian crisis in Gaza.
Israel must take back its pride and stop lurking in back doors. Brand it 'Made In Israel', be proud!
