Israel is confirming for the first time that it was behind the bombing of a suspected nuclear reactor in Syria more than 10 years ago. Israeli officials are saying the airstrike should serve as a warning to the Middle East that Israel will not allow nuclear weapons to be obtained by her enemies.

Also this week in Israel in the News:

  • A car-ramming attack last week that killed two Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers and seriously wounded two others is officially confirmed as a terror attack. Hamas said the attack proved “our people’s readiness to continue the Jerusalem intifada.”
  • According to The Times of Israel, days after the car-ramming attack, a 32-year-old Israeli man and father of four died after being stabbed by a Palestinian terrorist in the Muslim Quarter of Jerusalem’s Old City.
  • The Jerusalem Post reports that the White House is pushing back against Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ “hateful rhetoric” toward the U.S. Ambassador to Israel, David Friedman.
  • Despite increased security tensions in Jerusalem and fear of escalation in violence as Passover and Israel’s 70th anniversary approached, more Jews are visiting the Temple Mount in recent months.
  • With recent increases in anti-Semitic attacks in the United States and elsewhere, Fellowship founder and President Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein said education is the key to combatting anti-Semitism.

This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features The Fellowship‘s Yonit Rothchild on the importance of Israel’s partnership with her non-Jewish allies.
