On Monday, the group will host a launch meeting with an address by former Israeli Ambassador to the UN Dore Gold. On Tuesday, the group will release their official manifesto at a French press conference.


The organizers of Friends of Israel say that their organization is necessary because they are upset and troubled by the "unprecedented delegitimation campaign against Israel, driven by the enemies of the Jewish state and perversely assumed by numerous international authorities."


They state that their effort is different from previous groups as it is "promoted by people who are not Jewish and whose motivations are based on the deep conviction that Israel is part of the Western world. In fact, today Israel is a fundamental actor for the future of the West. Although the peace process is important, the members of Friends of Israel Initiative are more concerned about the onslaught of radical Islamism as well as the spectre of a nuclear Iran since these are threats affecting not only Israel, but the entire world."
