The above is my interview about antisemitic Rutgers professor Robert Chikindas, who I single-handedly exposed, and who recently got demoted because of it. This is just one of "my successes" with Israellycool, one of the largest English-language pro-Israel websites operating out of Israel with almost 5 million page views in the last year alone.

Since early 2003, I have been leading the way in online pro-Israel advocacy with Israellycool. Not the average pro-Israel website, Israellycool prides itself on constantly outscooping the mainstream media and other sites. I endeavor to not just preach to the choir but win over new choir members, utilizing a blend of humor, informativeness and uniqueness. And I believe I have attained much success in this regard. For instance, the Israellycool Wikipedia page was originally set up by a Muslim woman. You can read why she did it here. Also, I invented a number of terms now widely adopted by other pro-Israel websites and personalities, such as Shirley TemperHamashole and BDS-Hole. Other techniques I helped pioneer, such as Separated at Birth posts, have also been adopted by other sites. 

We have also regularly been cited by the mainstream media, including the New York Times, MSNBC, Washington Post, The Daily Mail, The Telegraph, Sydney Morning Herald, The Wall Street Journal, BBC Arabic, and The Blaze, in addition to Israeli sites like The Jerusalem Post, Ha'aretz, Israel National News and The Times of Israel. Past and present Israeli government officials read the site and have complimented it. For instance, here is what Danny Ayalon, former Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister and Israeli Ambassador to US, had to say about it.

I have also been able to cultivate good relationships with pro-Israel celebrities. Roseanne Barr has posted on Israellycool twice before, here and here. My good friend Mark Pellegrino has also posted for me and will be posting again in the future. And let's not forget Disturbed frontman David Draiman.

On the flipside, the haters REALLY hate me, since I am constantly exposing them (like Robert Chikindas). So effective have we been, that some claim Israellycool has close ties to the IDF! Even Roger Waters has singled Israellycool out

Some of the haters have actually targeted me and my family. You can read about one example here

My initial goal is to raise at least $2,000 a month. Why?  

Hosting
Due to the spiraling traffic, I have had to purchase a more expensive web hosting plan to ensure the site does not crash as it has regularly in the past. It is not cheap, but necessary.

Plugins
Occasionally, I purchase a premium plugin to enhance the user experience on the site.

Subscriptions
I have purchased a number of subscriptions (e.g. New York Times and Time Magazine) so I can go back in to the archives of those sites and conduct research for my popular History series.

Paying my contributors
There are currently a number of contributors on Israellycool who post voluntarily because they love the site and believe in its mission. I would like to pay them something at least as a token of appreciation.

Social Media advertising
These days, to get ahead of the game and reach an even larger audience beyond the choir, you need to expend some money on social media advertising. I would like to be able to do this.

My stretch goal is $15,000 a month. Why?

Devote myself to this full-time
I believe I was born to do this. Currently, I do not earn enough from the advertising I run on the site to quit my day job (it barely covers the costs). If I can reach my fundraising goals, I should be able to quit my day job and devote myself to this full-time. That means more posts, scoops and...

Expand Israellycool and my Hasbara (pro-Israel) activities
If I can quit my day job, I will also be able to shed the cloak of semi-anonymity and expand Israellycool in to other areas, such as video. I will have to buy some good equipment to do so, but that is already included in my fundraising goal amount. I also hope to be able interview more VIPs and celebrities, as well as the "man on the street." And I would love to be able to go on speaking tours to spread the word. Not being semi-anonymous will also mean I can go after antisemites with even more gusto than ever.

To put it simply, there will be a whole lot more Israellycool and entertaining content.

Until now I have received donations via Paypal, and I appreciate each and every one of them. With Pateron, I hope to reach even more people and reach my fundraising goals with the ultimate goal being to more effectively defend my beloved Israel and the Jewish people.

Thank you to everyone who has already, and will, support Israellycool. I appreciate it more than you will know.
