Israeli Rabbi Killed in West Bank Terror Shooting

Israeli Rabbi Raziel Shevah, a father of six, was killed this week in the West Bank while driving in his car near the Palestinian town of Nablus. No one has claimed responsibility for the attack, but the terror group Hamas “blessed” the attack, calling it retaliation against what it calls the “Zionist occupation.”

Also this week in Israel in the News:

  • The Jerusalem Post reports that the Palestinian Authority has paid almost $350 million in salary to Palestinian terrorists in 2017.
  • After weeks of unrest, citizen protests in Iran have quieted down. Iranian officials have blamed Israel and the U.S. for fomenting dissent among its people.
  • The Fellowship recently made a $1 million gift to the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in downtown Jerusalem, which handles more terror-related trauma cases than any other Jerusalem hospital.
  • Israeli newspaper Maariv recently listed Fellowship founder and President Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein as one of the 100 most influential people in Israel. Rabbi Eckstein was listed as #51.

This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features The Fellowship’s Ami Farkas on the Palestinian Authority’s payment to convicted terrorists and their families.
