Client Testimonials

  • Congratulations on yet another immensely successful campaign. The State and People of Israel owe you a debt of gratitude for your endeavors. - Noah Joseph, co-President, Concordia University Hillel
  • The mock elections were brilliant and we definitely reached hundreds of unaware, unaffiliated students in an amazing, pro-active way! - Shira Pruce, Rutgers University
  • Let me say it again. I love your website ( Campuses all over the USA are overwhelmed by vile anti-Israel and anti-Semitic propaganda spread not only by students, but also by faculty members. Pro-Israel students are ill-equipped to respond. Your website and the materials you provide are desperately needed. - Mark Solberg, Norfolk, Virginia

Press About the "Defeating Divestment - The Israel Activist's Primer"

In August 2002, Upstart Activist released a comprehensive guidebook for countering and defeating the nefarious "divestment" movement launched by anti-Israel activists on campuses throughout North America. It remains the definitive guidebook on the subject.

Press About The Israel Activist's X-Files

This groundbreaking primer, published in April 2002 in response to the barbaric campaign of Palestinian terror launched on Israelis, set the standard for guiding pro-Israel activists in hard-hitting truth telling in the form of guerilla activist techniques and the use of frank and effective anti-terror flyers. It caught the eye of many on campus, and in the press.
