Speaking this week at the annual American Israel Public Affairs Committee — the largest pro-Israel lobby in the U.S. — U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley stressed her efforts to defend Israel on the world stage. She told the group that her “taking names” comment sent a message that the U.S. would not stand for anti-Israel bias.

Also this week in Israel in the News:

  • The United Kingdom has pivoted toward a pro-Israel position, recently voting down an anti-Israel resolution at the U.N. The U.K. issued a statement indicating they would veto all future resolutions regarding Israel by the UN Human Rights Council “if things don’t change.”
  • Hamas has developed a sophisticated, high-powered rocket with the capability of damaging targets in Israel. Israeli authorities say they are prepared to evacuate areas of southern Israel if these rockets are launched.
  • With Passover approaching, The Fellowship is committed to providing tens of thousands of food boxes with items necessary to celebrate the holiday for needy Jews in Israel and the former Soviet Union.
  • After months of restoration work costing more than $3 million, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, built centuries ago at the historic location of Jesus’ tomb, has reopened this week for pilgrims in Jerusalem.

This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features The Fellowship‘s founder and President Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein on U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley’s refreshing support for Israel.
