Benjamin Anthony

Founder and Director of Our Soldiers Speak

Sgt. Benjamin Anthony (IDF Res.), a veteran of the 2006 Lebanon War and founder and director of the NGO Our Soldiers Speak, continues to condemn those who want to deprive Israeli soldiers of even the “most basic means” of self-defense.

“No soldier should ever be in a position where he is surrounded, with a machine gun over his shoulder, and somebody [a potential attacker] gets within arm’s length of him,” Anthony has said, referring to incidents during which armed Israeli soldiers have hesitated to respond while under attack for fear of official repercussions.

Anthony established Our Soldiers Speak in 2007; the NGO specializes in bringing IDF soldiers and officers to the campuses and communities of the English-speaking world.
