Terror struck again in Jerusalem’s Old City earlier this week when a Palestinian man attacked two Israeli police officers. According to police reports, the assailant entered a guard booth where the two officers were stationed, holding a large butcher’s knife and began stabbing them. One of the officers fought his way out of the guard booth and shot the assailant. The attacker later died of his wounds.

  • President Trump’s new envoy to the Middle East, Jason Greenblatt, met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in separate meetings. On the agenda were Israeli settlements, Palestinian terror attacks, and the next steps toward peace.
  • A Jordanian terrorist who gunned down seven Israeli teenaged girls in 1997 was released from prison this week. He was given a hero’s welcome in his hometown.
  • The Fellowship is helping ethnic minority youth prepare for serving in the Israel Defense Forces. Serving in the IDF often leads to better careers and service in the community.
  • Israel’s booming technology industry just experienced a major buyout by an American tech giant as Intel purchased the Jerusalem-based MobileEye for a reported $15 billion. The Israeli company develops technology behind driver-less cars.
