Israeli Officials Blast UN for Anti-Israel Remarks San

Israeli officials responded angrily to anti-Israel comments made by the United Nations’ Middle East envoy, Nikolay Mladenov, who called Israeli settlement-building “illegal.” A statement from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office defended Israel’s actions, saying that the Palestinian demand for “ethnic cleansing of Jews from a future Palestinian state” should be condemned by the U.N., not embraced.

Also this week in Israel in the News:

  • A human rights group has accused Palestinian leaders, including terror group Hamas, of illegal intimidation tactics against free press and dissent.
  • Recent confrontations in the Persian Gulf between Iran and U.S. naval forces have officials reevaluating the Iran nuclear deal.
  • President Obama is traveling to Asia where he is expected to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin, who is under fire right now for Russia’s involvement in Syria and Ukraine.
  • With increased hostilities in Ukraine, The Fellowship recently responded by airlifting 211 Ukrainian Jews to a new life in Israel.

This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features The Fellowship’s founder and President Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein on the anniversary of World War II.
