Why I joined the Herut slate for the upcoming World Zionist Congress elections

By Fred Taub

A number of months ago, I was asked to organize a meeting to help promote one of the many slates in the upcoming World Zionist Congress (WZC) elections. I blindly agreed because my thought was, as long as our side gets lots of votes, that's all that counts regardless of the party. After all, it's a right vs. left thing and the results really don't affect me. A few weeks later, I got a call asking me to be on the Herut slate. That changed everything.

I have been an activist since I was in grade school where I was erroneously called a "Militant Zionist" on the CBS Evening News as I was singing Oseh Shalom. I was threatened and harassed by the police when I organized the protests at the home of Nazi John "Ivan the Terrible" Demjanjuk. I saved the lives of kids at Jewish retreats and have been on the boards of more non-profits than I can remember. The list goes on but I won't bore you with the details.

So, when I got the call from an old friend in Herut, it made me think - does the slate really matter? Then I realized it does matter. The early Zionist leaders were not people who sat at desks earning six or seven figure salaries, adjusted for today's earnings. They were people who put their hearts and souls into the Zionist movement, tirelessly working every day for little money in return and usually spending every penny that had in the process. That's the origin of every great movement.

That's how I work. I put all my energy into projects, including how I was the person who stated the entire anti-BDS movement when it was just Divestment. My website is still up and active. That was an offshoot of my first anti-boycott website, which is also still up, and addresses boycotts beyond the Arab boycott of Israel. Importantly, the Arab boycott of Israel started long before the nation of Israel was formed. In fact, the Nazis got the idea of boycotting the Jews from the Arabs who created the predecessor to the Arab League, an organization formed specifically to prevent Israel from being formed by boycotting Jews globally. I also wrote the first book about the BDS movement called Boycotting Peace,, which garnered high praise from Ambassador / Defense Minister / former Deputy Prime Minister / Professor of Aeronautics, my friend Misha (z"l) who you may know better as Moshe Arens.

When it comes to fighting for Israel, I have always been on the front lines, fighting with the best of the best, and I am proud of it. I make that clear on my radio show, Jewish Community Radio on 88.7 FM, WJCU Cleveland, Ohio.

So, I thought, why should I support a slate of people who sit at their desks raising millions of dollars to pay salaries also in the million dollar range? I am a true Zionist, someone who fights for Israel and not for the big bucks. The same applies to the people in Herut - the Jabotinsky Movement slate for the WZC elections. I grew up in Betar, the proud Zionist movement of Ze'ev Jabotinsky. I stand tall and I am unapologetic about Jews, Zionism and Israel. That's the Herut movement and that's why I am on the Herut slate.

So now it's your turn. Voting runs now to March 11, 2020. Please register for the WZC elections (administered in the U.S. by the American Zionist Movement) at and vote for Herut, slate #10 - the slate of unapologetic Zionists who are unafraid.

Thank you,
Fred Taub
  New book by Fred Taub  
   Boycotting Peace book  
  Fred Taub speaks about his book:  
     The Arab boycott of Israel is the single biggest impediment to peace in the Middle East because you cannot have peace with someone who will not sit down with you for a cup of coffee.

   The Arab boycott became official policy with the creation of the Arab League in 1921, twenty-seven years before Israel was established, to starve out the Jews before Israel could be created. That's the same Arab League which declaring war on Israel and meets regularly to reaffirm their boycott. It does not end there. While Syria re-patents copies of Israeli products for the Arab world and the PA/PLO expanded their boycott to Malaysia while claiming to negotiate for peace with Israel in good faith, a consultant to the PA/PLO secretly created and drove the Goldstone Commission.

   On campuses, DBS is being pushed to create a new generation which believes boycotting Israel is moral and just. De-legitimization, unfortunately, is not the final goal, it is dismantlement. The Arab plan is to have average Americans to do their bidding to bankrupt Israel so they can then say Israel is a failed state which needs to be dismantled rather than bailed out. My book, Boycotting Peace, proves it.
  Fred Taub, President of Boycott Watch, was on Your World with Neil Cavuto on Fox News twice speaking about the Natallee Holloway inspired boycott of Aruba. See the report and video here.

   Fred Taub is a nationally recognized expert on boycotts and their effects, including consumer reactions to boycott calls and what makes consumers so upset that they not only refuse to do business with you and your company, but will work to get others to join them in order to boycott your business.

   Boycotts can cost your company hundreds, thousands and even millions of dollars before you realize what is happening. Fred Taub works with businesses to help them prevent boycotts from happening in the first place and how to best respond to a boycott against your business.

   Fred Taub says:
   "When faced with a boycott, corporate executives want to do one thing, the lawyers another, and then the PR people step in and claim to be experts in boycotts but they haven't a clue. The fact is that you need an expert in boycotts who knows how consumers react to boycotts, what makes a boycott successful, and how to respond so a boycott does not damage your company. That's where I come in - my specialized experience and expertise is unmatched. When you need an expert in boycotts, call me. More importantly, call me before you have a problem so you know what not to do, thus preventing boycotts in the first place.
