The Youth Institute for Peace in the Middle East, many of whose leaders were
associated with the Social Democrats USA, printed 1,000 copies of this poster
in 1974. YIPME was a pro-Israeli youth organization trying to combat
left-wing campus support for the PLO as well as convince non-Jewish American
students that by supporting Israel, they were supporting democracy in the
face of Soviet-backed terrorism and tyranny in the Middle East.
