Radical Islam Under Fire After Orlando Massacre

In the wake of the Orlando shooting where 49 were killed and scores more were injured, radical Islam is under the microscope as the shooter pledged the attack in the name of ISIS. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was quick to name radical Islam as the inspiration for the Orlando shooting and other recent terror attacks.

Also this week in Israel in the News:

  • As Britain went to the polls to vote on a referendum to leave the European Union, Prime Minister David Cameron said that the U.K. would be better able to support and defend Israel within the EU.
  • Israeli “Code Red” sirens have now been updated to sound when activity is detected in terror tunnels dug by Hamas.
  • Israel is proposing to build a $5 billion man-made island in the Mediterranean that will have both an airport and seaport to serve Gaza. After terror group Hamas seized power of the airstrip in Gaza in 2007, residents have been without an airport and seaport.
  • The Fellowship is providing more than $250,000 in food vouchers for needy Israeli Arabs as they celebrate the holy month of Ramadan.

This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features The Fellowship’s Yonit Rothchild on sending a message of hope to a world reeling from recent terror attacks and tragedies.
