CAMERA Fellow Josh Dienstman and Dragons for Israel (A CCAP/CAMERA supported group) recently organized an event at Drexel University, where Sgt. (Res.) Jared M. Ben-Caro, a former IDF paratrooper, discussed his experience as a combat soldier during Operation Cast Lead. In this operation, the IDF entered the Gaza Strip to dismantle Hamas weapon infrastructure.


Sgt. Ben-Caro focused on debunking the numerous myths regarding the IDF’s alleged cruelty. He spoke about the life a soldier in the IDF with all of its hardships. He showed the audience the humanitarian focus of the IDF, and how the IDF only engages in military action if necessary to defend Israeli citizens from unprovoked enemy attacks. The event was a complete success, with Sgt. Ben-Caro talking about his personal life, making the audience feel at home and comfortable.
