The office of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says that they have not received information of any U.S. decision not to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. President Trump has previously intimated that he plans to move the embassy to Jerusalem – a decision that would anger the Palestinians.

Also this week in Israel in the News:

  • Turkish President Recep Erdogan has blasted Israel for its alleged treatment of Palestinians, calling it “the Judaization of Jerusalem” and comparing Israel’s actions against the Palestinians to South African apartheid.
  • Meanwhile, Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas has accepted an invitation to join Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and U. S. President Trump at a peace summit planned for Trump’s diplomatic trip to Israel later this month.
  • A planeload of 240 Jewish immigrants from Ukraine arrived in Tel Aviv this week through The Fellowship‘s On Wings of Eagles program. Since 2015, The Fellowship has provided immigration assistance for more than 5,000 Ukrainian Jews.
  • Hamas leaders sought to clarify a new government charter they released last week, reiterating that their ultimate goal was still nothing less than the destruction of the Jewish state. The revised charter was aimed at improving the group’s international reputation.

This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features The Fellowship‘s Yonit Rothchild about loving our neighbor.
