An Israeli police officer was killed after a car driven by an Israeli Arab rammed into a group of police officers in village of Umm-Al Hiran. The police were securing an area that had been targeted for demolition as an illegal settlement. The driver of the car was shot and killed by police.

Also this week in Israel in the News:

  • Pressure from Jerusalem and the U.K. thwarted participants at the Paris Peace Summit from taking any anti-Israel actions. Specifically, the United Kingdom block a U.N. resolution that would have endorsed directing Israeli and Palestinian leaders to “take concrete steps” toward a two-state solution.
  • A new survey released this week by the World Zionist Organization revealed that 85 percent of Jews worldwide have either experienced firsthand or witnessed anti-Semitism. This as 32 U.S. Jewish community centers received bomb threats this week. Last week, 16 Jewish centers in the U.K. and U.S. had received bomb threats.
  • A 92-year-old woman penned a letter thanking The Fellowship for lifesaving assistance she receives through its “With Dignity and Fellowship” program.
  • Outgoing Secretary of State John Kerry told reporters that he believes the nuclear deal he helped negotiate with Iran and other world powers will remain intact.

This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features The Fellowship’s Yonit Rothchild on the blessing of lifesaving technology.
