Prior to addressing the United Nations this week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with President Obama for their final meeting before the President leaves office. Earlier, Israeli U.N. Ambassador Danny Danon had blasted the U.N.’s “obsession” for criticizing Israel and ignoring Palestinian terror and incitement.
Also this week in Israel in the News:
- Terror attacks are on the rise again in Israel, with Palestinian terrorists targeting police officers. At least four Palestinians were killed last weekend in assaults on Israelis.
- Last week, Israel and the U.S. agreed upon the largest bilateral military aid package in history, an unprecedented $38 billion deal. Iran reacted by saying the deal will only cause the Islamic Republic to bolster its military.
- U.S. authorities are looking at radical Islam as a motive for a series of terror attacks in New York and Minnesota that injured dozens.
- The Fellowship is launching a major campaign during the upcoming High Holy Days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur to provide 250,000 needy Jews in Israel and the fromer Soviet Union with food, clothing, and other necessities to help them observe the holidays.
This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features The Fellowship’s Yonit Rothchild on dealing with terrorism in her backyard.
