In the wake of a U.S. raid in Syria last week that led to the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the main objective was to get “this bad guy … off the face of the planet.”

  • Israeli intelligence and nightly counter-terrorism raids are working to prevent the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, an Iranian-backed terror organization, from producing rockets in the West Bank and attacking Israel.
  • A third election may be needed in Israel as the results of the Sept. 18th election are still undecided and talks between the Blue and White and Likud parties are at a standstill.
  • The Trump administration has criticized the German government for downplaying the Iranian threats to destroy Israel, saying, “Threatening the destruction of Israel is something that should not be dismissed.”
  • The U.S. and Israel are spearheading efforts to increase oversight of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), saying the agency utilizes its funds to disseminate lies about the Jewish state.
