United States and North Korea Off to a Good Start

On Tuesday, June 12, 2018, the historic summit between President Trump and North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-Un concluded by signing a joint statement, in which the United States committed to providing guarantees of security to North Korea in exchange for denuclearization.

Trump said he was suspending military exercises on the Korean Peninsula and that he expected the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, to move “very quickly” to dismantle his nuclear arsenal after. Trump said economic sanctions against North Korea would remain in place.

Mr. Kim stated, “We had a historic meeting and decided to leave the past behind. The world will see a major change.”

While there are still serious human rights issues that future conversations must include, the overall agenda remains complicated and sensitive – one whose outcome holds great importance for America, Israel, and the world. AFSI is hoping for continued positive and productive meetings between the two leaders.

DARK STAIN ON ISRAELI JUSTICE SYSTEM Netiv Ha’Avot Evacuated – “We’re Talking About Inches”

Fifteen families in the Jewish community of Netiv Ha’Avot have been removed from their homes. All because of a 15 meter housing infraction.

Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked said this is “…a completely unnecessary evacuation, stemming from a serious mistake: It began with a mistaken state response that was given a few years ago – that we fixed fundamentally. …this is where it ends. In the last three years, we’ve changed the discourse: Instead of asking ‘when to evacuate’, today we ask how to regulate.”

AFSI officially decries this evil and senseless decree once again watching the destruction Jewish homes based on unproven, undocumented Arab claims. The Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, must override the Israeli Supreme Court on all issues that call for the destruction of Jewish land and homes.

Report Card for Area C: Regavim Exposes the Truth Again

In the past three years, nearly $25 million was contributed by the European Union for the express purpose of facilitating Arab control over Area C.

Yesterday, Regavim presented undisputable data to the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee in a hearing convened by the Subcommittee on Judea and Samaria.

Said Yishai Hemo, field coordinator for Judea and Samaria at Regavim: “In light of the scope of the P.A.’s activities and the massive funding that enables this program, the Civil Administration must treat agricultural land seizure as a phenomenon of strategic importance, and not merely as a localized violation of law.”

Enemies from Without and Within – Great Dangers to Israel

South Tel Aviv Riots Continue
AFSI has been to south Tel Aviv many times, most recently this past April when we met with May Golan, tireless crusader to save the community from the Sudanese and Eritrean infiltrators and destroyers. Since these illegals now have loud defenders in the Israeli and world community, they continue to act brazenly against the Israelis, knowing they will get away with it. AFSI lends its full support to May Golan and her comrades. The government MUST control the situation.

Southern Tel Aviv has been described as “hell” due to the government’s failure to deal with ongoing violent rioting by the infiltrators. More HERE.

Why Won’t the IDF Stop the Kites Before They’re Launched?
It appears that the army can see the Arabs preparing their kites on the Gaza side of the border, with the intention to BURN ISRAEL and the JEWS. Why aren’t they stopped before the kites are launched, and before they can start the horrible fires that do so much damage to the crops of Israeli farmers and to the valuable trees, so lovingly planted in Israel?

David Bedein shares his ​unedited May 30, 2018 footage of ​Gaza’s incendiary kite flyers who dispatch kite bombs to cause havoc in Israel. Why does the IDF not attack them?

Terrorism is Not Art
Tragically, Israel must confront enemies from without and from within. The IDF, b’ezrat haShem, is able to defeat Israel’s exterior enemies, but the ones from within survive and thrive. Why should a situation like the one described below continue to be tolerated?

The Bezalel Academy of Art is showing an exhibit that mourns known terrorists along with a swastika spray painted on a wall in the Academy.

It seems this institution has lost all sense of reality. Are they forgetting something? Read Dov Trachtman’s Arutz Sheva OpEd HERE.

SAVE NETIV HaAVOT

AFSI has visited the Netiv HaAvot community, spoken with the residents, and has officially decried the evil and senseless decree to once again destroy Jewish homes based on unproven, undocumented Arab claims. The Israeli Supreme Court must be overruled in all such cases.

On Tuesday morning June 12, 15 Jewish families from the Netiv HaAvot neighborhood of Elazar in Gush Etzion will be evicted from their homes as a result of an Israeli High Court of Justice order. The homes are slated for demolition two days later. This is the result of an absurd and illogical ruling.

For months the families, along with their neighbors, friends, and supporters near and far, have been engaged in a campaign to try to save their homes. But barring a miracle, the decree of the Court is final.

We’re talking about 15 Zionistic, patriotic, tax-paying, army and reserve serving families, who live in Israel, and were simply trying to live normal lives and raise their families on a beautiful stretch of earth in the Land of Israel.

But none of this matters now.

Once the security forces arrive, and remove the families, this will no longer be an issue of POLITICS or a question of who was right or who was wrong. It will no longer be a question of whether or not JUSTICE was served.

On June 12, once that first knock is heard on the door, and that first family is asked to leave their house, then it becomes a HUMANITARIAN issue.

Therefore, it is our responsibility as Jews, family members, friends, and neighbors of those who will be evicted from the homes which they built, in some cases with their bare hands, to SHOW OUR UTMOST SUPPORT, IN THEIR TIME OF NEED.

Please don’t treat June 12, like any other day, because it just isn’t. Those who will be losing their homes and relocated are going to be going through a lot. Other Netiv HaAvot residents, especially the children, whose homes will remain intact, will also be embarking on challenging days ahead, filled with many questions, possibly without many answers.

How to Save Netiv HaAvot Houses From Being Destroyed

This message is from David Bedein, Director of Israel Resource News Agency and Center for Near East Policy Research

The campaign for Netiv HaAvot, like the failed campaigns for Amona, Migron, Beit El, Ofra, is premised on the false notion that decisions from the High Court of Justice (Bagatz) must be acted upon.

That flies in the face of Israeli reality.

There are tens of Bagatz decisions which have not been enforced by the government of Israel, due to public pressure.

Everything has to do with how much pressure is placed on the PMO (Prime Minister’s Office) in the next few days, from people around the country and around the world, not from the people in Judea.

Everyone has at least 10 friends or relatives who were to ask 10 friends or relatives to bombard Bibi’s office with a simple request:

Ignore the Bagatz. It does not make sense to destroy a community because of a 15 meter housing infraction.

If 1,000 people call the PMO four times a day with this message, in an assertive yet not abusive way, those 4,000 calls will affect policy.

Telephone of the PMO: 011-972-3-610-9898 | Fax of the PMO: 011-972-2-560-5000
