Netanyahu, Bolton Increase Pressure on Iran

Meeting this week in Jerusalem, U.S. National Security Advisor John Bolton and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu discussed how to stop Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. The two called on other nations to put pressure on Tehran, saying the current nuclear deal is paving the way for Iran to develop a nuclear bomb.

  • Meanwhile, as the first round of U.S. sanctions against Iran have been implemented, Iranian officials sent out a warning that if attacked, Iran will target the U.S. and Israel.
  • President Trump is planning to unveil his Middle East peace proposal at the U.N. next month, calling it the “deal of the century.”
  • Also next month, Israeli Ambassador to the U.N. Danny Danon said he plans to launch an online campaign against anti-Semitism at the 73rd U.N. General Assembly.
  • On a flight sponsored by The Fellowship, nearly 300 new immigrants from Ukraine arrived in Israel on Tuesday. Many made aliyah (immigrated to Israel) because of economic hardship and the ongoing war in Ukraine.

This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features The Fellowship’s Global Executive Vice President Yael Eckstein on providing the blessing of joy.
