ISIS Magazine Dabiq Targets Christians, Jews

In the most recent edition of the Islamic State’s publication, Dabiq, the main feature article targeted Christians and Jews, saying the Bible and the Torah were filled with lies. The article further claimed that for those who continue to disbelieve in Islam, “You shall be defeated and then dragged all together into Hell.” Counterterrorist experts said the article was tantamount to “declaring war on all of us.”

Also this week in Israel in the News:

  • After months of negotiations, the White House and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have agreed to a 10-year extension of the U.S. aid deal with Israel, representing the largest pledge of foreign military aid in U.S. history.
  • Pope Francis visited Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp in Poland this week – the first non-European pope to visit the Holocaust sites.
  • The Fellowship strives to care for the most at-risk people in Israel – including children, elderly, and Holocaust survivors – through its Kupat Yedidut program. The fund provides clothing, appliances, medical care, rent assistance, food coupons, and other necessities.
  • As the 2016 Summer Olympic games are set to begin in Brazil, Israel is sending its largest-ever delegation with 47 athletes competing in 17 different events.
