Tensions High in Israel after Terror-filled Ramadan


As the Muslim holy month of Ramadan comes to a close, Israelis are still reeling from a series of Palestinian terror attacks that have left at least six dead, including a 13-year-old girl who was stabbed to death as she slept in her bedroom. Outside of Israel, radical Islamists carried out terror attacks during Ramadan, killing people in Paris, Turkey, Orlando, Baghdad, Bangladesh, Saudi Arabia, and elsewhere.

Also this week in Israel in the News:

  • Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was at the Entebbe airport in Uganda to mark the 40th anniversary of the Entebbe raid, when Israelis rescued 102 people taken hostage by Palestinian terrorists. Netanyahu’s brother, Yonatan, died during the daring rescue.
  • Israeli officials this week captured a pair of Hamas terrorists. In conversations with intelligence officers, the two have divulged information about terror tunnel entrances and missile launching pads.
  • The Fellowship recently sponsored an event to honor Druze soldiers. The Druze community in Israel makes up less than 2 percent of the population, but are known for their faithful service in the Israel Defense Forces.
  • New information on the recent Tel Aviv restaurant shooting that left four dead indicates that the perpetrators were motivated by ISIS.

This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features The Fellowship’s founder and President Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein on remembering Holocaust survivor and Nobel Prize winner Elie Wiesel, who died last Saturday.
