Time to Face the Truth

Reports are surfacing that the Trump administration is prepared to announce a new policy that effectively cancels the so-called “right of return” for Palestinians. The policy will have consequences for both the “refugees” and the disastrous UNRWA – an enormous issue AFSI that has been following closely.

The administration is expected to announce its plan in September – – one that will have several stages.

AFSI eagerly looks forward to forthcoming information and what we hope is the start of the long overdue resolution to the UNRWA matter.

Just last week the US cut $200 million in aid to the Palestinian Authority after a State Department review found that the funding was not being spent in line with US national interests.

IF NOT US Launched in Israel- First Group of Students to Experience the REAL Israel

Rabbi Uri Pilichowski reports on his first day as Director of Americans for a Safe Israel/AFSI’s IF NOT US program – whose goal is to teach the truth about Israel.

College campuses have become the new battleground for anti-Israel sentiment. Anti-Israel activists demonize Israel with slanderous charges that Israel mistreats Palestinians. They challenge Israel advocates by claiming that they don’t know what’s really happening on the ground in the “West Bank.” Their campaigns argue that American Jews were never told about how Israel really treats the Palestinians. If only they knew about the oppressive way Israel treated the Palestinians, they would abandon their support for Israel. These are lies that must be addressed.

Israel’s best advocates have studied the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and have strong emotional ties to Israel, but they haven’t seen the truth. They haven’t driven through Judea and Samaria and seen fair and secure checkpoints. They can’t say that they’ve seen firsthand that there is no oppression of Palestinians. They become easy targets of those who fabricate stories of Israeli apartheid.

With its program, IF NOT US, AFSI addresses facts on the ground in Judea and Samaria. By taking the most engaged Gap Year students in Israel and showing them the truth, IF NOT US will ensure that when these students arrive on the college campus they can speak with confidence that they have been there and seen the truth. They can answer Israel’s opponents with the truth that Palestinian Arabs are treated fairly and that Israel is a moral country.

IF NOT US takes students on a one day tour of Judea and Samaria. On this trip IF NOT US shows the truth about Judea and Samaria IF NOT US is committed to giving our best advocates not only the facts, the passion, but also the firsthand knowledge to defend themselves against those who knowingly lie about what occurs in Judea and Samaria.

It Ain’t Never Gonna Happen!

In his second meeting with PM Netanyahu this week, UN National Security Advisor John Bolton stated his highest priority is to see that Iran will “…never get nuclear weapon capabilities.”

Bolton has been a very strong supporter of Israel and an outspoken critic of the Iran ‘deal.’ He also reaffirmed that the alliance between the US and Israel has never been stronger.

Accept Nothing Less

“Our demand is clear—a complete ceasefire. We will not suffice with less than this.”

This is what Prime Minister Netanyahu demanded at the start of his weekly cabinet meeting. The full objective is to restore quiet and calm to the residents of southern Israel and the area adjacent to the Gaza Strip.

The current Egypt-brokered ceasefire between Israel and the Gaza Strip was protested by Minister Uri Ariel (Bayit Yehudi) stating that there can be no ceasefire when someone intentionally comes to kill you.

Education Minister and Security Cabinet Member Naftali Bennett (Jewish Home) is calling for a new strategy to deal with Hamas and said, “We must not allow the situation to continue in which Hamas dictates the pace of life of the residents of the State of Israel.”

The End Begins

The End Begins

Left-wing NGO and underminder of Israel, Freedom Protection Council, will no longer receive funding from the EU.

According to the EU statement, the decision to stop the funding is a direct result of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s “diplomatic efforts.”

Netanyahu stated: “This is only the beginning. We will continue to take determined action against organizations that seek to delegitimize the State of Israel and strive to defame the state and the IDF around the world.”

Story HERE.

On the same subject, Netanyahu recently rebuked Norwegian Foreign Minister Ine Eriksen Soreide when the two met in his office in Jerusalem on Sunday, accusing Norway of overtly funding anti-Israeli activity.
