The Jerusalem Post interviewed Gekker about HelpUsWin's activities during the Israeli offensive in Gaza in January 2009.
- "There is a misconception that the Internet is democratic, but that's far from the truth," said Alex Gekker, 24, a student in new media diplomacy at IDC and a volunteer at HelpUsWin headquarters.
- "You can voice your opinion, but it doesn't mean anyone will listen. So we created HelpUsWin.org to give people a simple toolset to make a lot of noise," he said.
- Gekker said that Jews and supporters of Israel want to fight the anti-Israel sentiment on Web sites worldwide, and the effort will be much more effective if it is organized and amalgamated.
