When someone expresses gratitude for something you have done, express your gratitude for that person's gratitude. By accepting that person's words of gratitude, you are making it more likely that this person will continue to express gratitude to others.

Forbes Names Darshan-Leitner Amongst Top 50 Israeli Women
Nitsana Darshan-Leitner listed as one of the 50 most influential Israeli women of 2016In July, a federal lawsuit was filed in New York against Facebook on behalf of bereaved families of terror victims. The families demanded $1 billion in compensation from the social network, claiming that it has provided services to Hamas, and has the power to monitor terrorist incitement on its platform, but chooses not to do so. The lawsuit against Facebook was filed around the same time that Israel's Internal Security Minister, Gilad Erdan, harshly criticized Mark Zuckerberg for failing to curb incitement on Facebook. The real force behind the initiatives to stop social media incitement is Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, the head of Shurat HaDin - Israel Law Center, established in 2002 with several partners.
Shurat HaDin is a registered NGO and a Jewish legal rights organization that provides legal representation to terror victims and goes on the offensive against entities that finance terrorism and terror organizations. Shurat HaDin is now trying to fight incitement and the promotion of terrorism on social networks, in the belief that social media giants Facebook and Twitter should take responsibility for monitoring the content on their platforms.
Darshan-Leitner, married with six children, was born in Petah Tikva and grew up in a religious home. As a child she dreamed of becoming a doctor, but after completing her national service at Magen David Adom, went on to pursue a law degree at Bar Ilan University. After graduating, the young lawyer began to take on pro-bono cases. For example, she represented a belly dancer who filed a harassment suit against the Egyptian ambassador to Israel, Mohammed Bassiouni. Following the Bassiouni case, she established her reputation as a legal fighter on behalf of terror victims.
In a recent initiaive last month, Darshan-Leitner filed a petition in Israel's Supreme Court, arguing that Israel's new reconciliation agreement with Turkey allows Hamas to continue operating within Turkish borders, endangering Israel and its citizens.
