Welcome to the official newsletter of Fuel For Truth, ReFuel. In 2016, information flies into our lives from 360 degrees, and too often we find ourselves reading an amalgamation of conflated ideas, forced conclusions, omitted facts and lost truths. Without the right tools, you walk away either confused, misinformed or tragically both.
We, at FFT, want to change that for as many of our contemporaries as we can, especially when it comes to the gross misrepresentation of Israel in today's media and public discourse. Our organization is built on the idea of spreading truth. When you read the news, we want you to have the historical context, the facts, and the community so that you understand the full picture.
Every first Tuesday each month, be sure to check your inbox for the latest.

This was July 2014 and I was in Israel on Birthright; afterwards, I extended my trip to stay with family. Being in the Middle East during these tumultuous weeks, I spent a fair share of time in underground shelters built to protect innocent lives from indiscriminately fired rockets, many of which were launched from civilian areas like hospitals and schools.Read more
