Pro-Israel Tech Group
Succeeds On Facebook
In just 15 months, United with
Israel, a new tech-savvy Israel
advocacy organization is set-
ting records in the world of
social media. On March 4, Prime
Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
became the 1 millionth supporter.
United with Israel now has a
global friends reach of more than
200 million people in more than
100 countries. This is 25 percent
of the entire Facebook community
worldwide.
United with Israel, the world's
first Global Movement for Israel, is
the brainchild of Michael Gerbitz,
a technology pro from New York.
Gerbitz moved to Israel with his
wife and nine children in 2007.
In the process of developing
online businesses, he discovered
a dynamic, highly effective way to
spread positive messages about
Israel to millions of people around
the world.
"It's not magic:' Gerbitz says.
"United with Israel is the first pro-
Israel organization that's actually
harnessing the full potential of
social media.
"The fact is, if ordinary people
in the Arab world can use social
media as the basis for radical
change, we can certainly use it to
advocate for Israel"
