Our History

On Sunday August 8, 2010, the “Friends Of Israel Western Australia Inc” (FOIWA) was launched by a group of prominent West Australians, State and Federal Politicians, and other West Australians from all walks of life, who see the State of Israel as a “friend in need”.

FOIWA’s establishment reflected growing world-wide concern of a need to support nations who believe in and demonstrate basic democratic values and freedoms.

The formation of the WA Friends of Israel mirrors other similar organisations that have sprung up around the world to give the often ‘silent majority’ an opportunity to make a tangible contribution toward defending democracy and freedom, securing peace in the Middle East, and especially to support Israel in the face of ongoing existential threats.

The Launch was attended by a diverse contingent of Federal, State and Local Government representatives and addressed by several leading parliamentarians and the Israel Ambassador to Australia at that time, Yuval Rotem.
