Ronen Shoval.

Ronen Shoval

Founder, Im Tirtzu

Shoval is one of the founders and the current chairman of Im Tirtzu, the largest Zionist youth group in Israel. Whether it’s uncovering bias on university campuses or holding organizations accountable, Shoval puts himself and his organization in the thick of it—even if the results aren’t always pretty. Articulate and well spoken, he’s also proven an adroit commentator and his opinion pieces appear frequently in publications such as Ha’aretz and the Jerusalem Post.

  • All the comments above are simple lies, and you should be ashamed of yourself for spending these rumors. Hope Shoval and ImTirsu will continue their wonderful efforts to counter the forces of evils who are working hard to legitimatize Israel and boycotting Israeli produces. Israel is just the first to face the Djihad, but the world will wake up…sooner or later.

  • Son of a hi-tech multi-millionaire, Ronen Shoval has initiated a $500,000 libel suit against 5 human rights activists for criticism they lodged against Im Tirzu. It’s classic SLAPP, which is an inherent part of the individual’s tactic’s as well as his organization: shutting up any form of criticism against the destructive policies of the Israeli government. They celebrate the national anthem, the flag and military uniforms like any proto-fascist European group. Maybe he does deserve a place in this list.

  • Shoval & Im Tirtsu are known is Israel for being an extreme right moment who’s goal is to threat anyone who present criticism on Netanyahu’s government. their ways of actions remind dark times of McCarthyism in america, where they blame anyone who doesn’t present their ultra right opinion as “anti zionist” or “hidden anti zionist” – an anti zionist who doesn’t know he is one, and needs to be treated.

    naming him in any list as pro israel is bad for israel and bad for israelis.

  • Are you freaking kidding me? Did you get your list of candidates from the Likud party headquarters? “Holding organizations accountable”? This is the very person who has been running a campaign against most Israeli human-rights NGOs claiming that they receive donations from ‘terror supporters’, though they all present transparent reports of their funding, while ‘Im Tirtzu’ keeps their donation records secret, and when it was found that -the- John Hagee supports them financially, he cut off their funding because THEY, not him, were deemed too controversial.

  • yep, flaming hatred is good for the youth in zion…
    he is a dangerous person for israel and her image in the long run!
    :(

    British Jewish Star Daniel Radcliffe Hopes New Movie About Neo-Nazis Will Spark Dialogue to Defeat Antisemitic Rhetoric

    Racist and antisemitic rhetoric supported by white supremacists can be defeated by opening channels for meaningful dialogue, British-Jewish actor Daniel Radcliffe said, ahead of the release of his new film, in which he plays an undercover FBI agent infiltrating a neo-Nazi group. “[White supremacist ideologies] have more power the less we talk about them.

    Ben-Gurion University Institute Tackles Water Shortages, Hygiene in Developing Countries

    JNS.org – Israeli water experts believe that by 2050, almost half of the world’s population will live in countries with a chronic water shortage. What’s causing the shortfall is population growth, which leads to a greater demand for food, increased pollution and climate instability, according to Prof. Noam Weisbrod, director of the Zuckerberg Institute for Water Research (ZIWR) in the Jacob Blaustein Institute for Desert Research at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. In Israel’s Negev Desert, which has long been plagued […]
