The Israeli Ministry is working hard to combat anti-Israel and antisemitic attitudes that people have because of campaigns such as BDS (Boycott, Divest, Sanction) which are known for spreading misinformation and half-truths about Israel to 'promote' their own agenda.
In addition to the Act.IL app, the ministry has set up the 4il.org campaign that provides resources and information on how to better inform those who have been persuaded by the misinformation of anti-Israel organizations.
The #FakeNews Street Quiz campaign asked students in the US to respond to made up 'facts' about Israel, and to expose the anti-Israel bias that many seem to hold. In Lesson 1, people debated Israel's agreement with North Korea
