Sometimes a few people can indeed make a difference. You did it. You got American Express to restore Israel to its map, and I’m happy to announce it on Buy Israel Goods Day. I’d like to thank all of you, my readers and friends, Facebook friends (join me on Facebook), and Twitter followers (follow me on Twitter) for getting American Express to restore Israel to its list of countries on the map. On Monday, I alerted you to the fact that American Express removed Israel from its map and list of countries. A number of you contacted American Express to express your outrage at this Map of Hate, and I also got our friend, Fred Taub of Boycott Watch and author of the new book (about the Muslim/Anti-Semitic boycott/divestment/sanctions campaign against Israel) “Boycotting Peace,” to contact American Express officials. As a result, American Express restored Israel to the list. And it is now there. Thanks to all of you who pursued this. We can make a difference. And you did. Thanks again. Sometimes–though not nearly often enough–our outcries are heard. Mazel Tov & Yasher Koach (May Your Strength Grow–a Jewish congratulation).
