Noles for Israel, an EMET for Israel group at Florida State University, presented a lecture on March 25th by IDF Sergeant Benjamin Anthony in conjunction with the Less Hamas, More Hummus program. Hosted by CAMERA liaison Marc Faust, the lecture brought together a sizable crowd to learn about the experiences of an IDF soldier.
Sergeant Anthony is the founder of “Our Soldiers Speak,” an organization that travels to college campuses and communities in the English-speaking world, bringing IDF soldiers to share their experiences serving in the army. Anthony spoke about his time in the army—of which he is still a member as a reservist—as well as his views on Israel and the threats against the country. As part of the OSS foundation, he lectures both pro- and anti-Israel groups, as well as groups who have yet to form a fully-fledged opinion on Israel and the conflict.
Liaison Faust reported that the attendees of the lecture were very interested in Anthony’s talk, and especially the stories he told about his brother Jonathan.
