With the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) noting a significant spike in anti-Semitic and anti-Israel tweets this past year and rising anti-Semitism worldwide, LIBI USA, the official fund of the Israel Defense Force (IDF), took time out of its busy schedule raising funds to support Israel’s soldiers to share some of the heartfelt prayers and statements that supporters have sent along with their donations.
“There is no greater or more caring army than that of the IDF,” noted Dr. John A.I. Grossman, Chairman of LIBI USA, to Breaking Israel News. “And, I will add that those who stand with Israel’s army are also the best and most caring people worldwide who understand the importance of supporting Israel’s soldiers.”
As social media outlets flood the Internet with lies and distortions about Israel and her army, showing support through deeds and donations has never been more important. LIBI USA collects the warm sentiments sent with donations and appreciates each one.
Here is a sampling of comments from LIBI USA donors:
“I love Israel and those who defend her!!” Angela P., New Zealand

“We not only appreciate the comments that people send with their donations, we are also grateful and moved when families ask friends to donate to LIBI USA in lieu of gifts for a special occasion,” noted Grossman. “Special funds have been established which recognize Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, anniversaries, and the death of a loved one. Choosing to donate to Israel’s soldiers is like joining prophecy fulfilled. After 2,000 years, the Jewish people once again have their own army in their Biblical homeland. We must keep it strong.”
