As tensions continue to rise in the Middle East, Israeli intelligence shared with the U.S. a credible threat from Iran. In response, the U.S. launched one of its warships into the Persian Gulf to aid U.S. troops on the ground.

  • This week marked the one-year anniversary of the U.S. moving its embassy to Jerusalem — the fulfillment of a 1995 law that also recognized Jerusalem as the undivided capital of Israel.
  • In a Wall Street Journal op-ed, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman argued that the Trump administration’s recognition of the Golan Heights as Israeli territory fulfilled a U.N. Security Council resolution.
  • An elderly woman from the Jewish community of Helsingborg, Sweden, was critically injured Tuesday when a man armed with a knife attacked her from behind. Israeli President Reuven Rivlin linked the assault to anti-Semitism.
  • Hackers posted a two-minute video message posing as the Israel Defense Forces during the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest that warned viewers of an imminent missile attack on Tel Aviv.

This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features Fellowship President Yael Eckstein on the new reality for the Jewish people.
