In a speech this week, outgoing Secretary of State John Kerry not only defended the American abstention from an anti-Israel vote at the United Nations, but also blamed Israel for threatening prospects of peace in the Middle East.

Also this week in Israel in the News:

  • Prime Minister Netanyahu condemned Kerry's speech, while his office also condemned the U.S. actions at the U.N.
  • The Fellowship's Rabbi Eckstein was honored at the Knesset as a "beacon of light" for needy Holocaust survivors.
  • Christians made the pilgrimage to Bethlehem in order to observe Christmas in the Holy Land.

This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features The Fellowship’s founder and President Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein with a rallying cry to stand for Israel.
