T.E.A.M. is a San Diego-based non-profit organization whose goal is to educate the public about Israel on the basis of actual historical facts.
Israel has successfully defended itself and won every war of aggression waged against it by its neighbors. Unfortunately, rather than sign an agreement at the peace table, some refuse to admit that the Jewish State is here to stay. Instead, they and their misguided supporters have been using misinformation and disinformation to spread lies about Israel. They created a fictional narrative that misrepresents substantiated historical facts. Israel has been falsely depicted as the oppressor when, in fact, Israel is actually the aggrieved party.
T.E.A.M.’s founders believe that bringing facts and historical accuracy to the attention of open-minded Americans can illuminate what is a complex situation - past and present. What is for certain, is that without knowledge, propaganda takes hold easily. Slogans blaming Israel for all problems in the region is ridiculous and simplistic. The mission of T.E.A.M. is to teach those historical facts so that the general public can intelligently refute the lies and propaganda that we often hear.
