Terror Does Not Pay! Israel Passes Law Cutting Funding to PA

The Knesset voted into law on Monday a bill to slash funds to the Palestinian Authority by the amount Ramallah pays out to convicted terrorists and the families of terrorists killed while carrying out attacks.

This legislation is in line with America’s Taylor Force Act and with Australia’s latest decision to withhold aid to the PA. Abbas and the PA leadership must understand that any payments to terrorists will be coming from their pockets .This clearly sends the message that terror does not pay.

Read that Australia announced it will end direct aid to the PA due to stipends paid to terrorists and their families.

We are very pleased to learn that after one year in the position, David Myers has stepped down as President and CEO of the Center for Jewish History in NYC. He cited that he wanted to return to academic life in California and to avoid the frequent commute from NY to CA in order to be with his family.

AFSI was at the forefront of the campaign to fire Myers having led a major protest rally in the Fall of 2017. With the incredible support of JCC Watch leader, Richard Allen, an amazing radio campaign took place exposing Myers’ connections to the anti-Israel New Israel Fund. Hundreds of AFSI members, JCC supporters, and coalition friends, and supporters attended the rally, seriously rattling the leadership at the CJH.

A video of Helen Freedman, AFSI’s Co-Executive Director, speaking at the October 18, 2017 rally, can be found HERE.

We are requesting that the Center for Jewish History do a better job of vetting candidates to replace Myers. It is an absolute disgrace that someone as blatantly anti-Israel as Myers was chosen for this prestigious position. AFSI will be watching this closely.

Why do we continue to do what we do? Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu once explained, “We must not cave into the pressure, [we must] expose the lies and attack the attackers…”

Read today’s excellent Jewish Press OpEd by AFSI colleagues Hank Sheinkopf, George Birnbaum and Ronn Torossian, who first blew the whistle on David Myers.

Just Say No!

A dwindling economy. Shouts of “Death to Palestine,” “Help us, not Gaza,” and “Leave Syria alone and deal with Iran.” These are the cries of the Iranian people who are protesting in large numbers and expanding into more cities throughout Iran demanding that the government invest in the Iranian economy and not in other countries in the Middle East.

Iran Freedom, a popular Twitter account dedicated to bringing freedom and democracy to Iran, wrote that the protesters asked security forces to join the protests instead of breaking them up.

We believe that these protests are the direct result of President Trump tearing up the disastrous Iran ‘deal.’ America has empowered the Iranian man in the street. We wish them success.

Good News for a Change

AFSI is pleased with two developments this week.

These developments are not about prejudice, racism or Islamaphobia. They are about recognizing right from wrong, about knowing the difference between what a moral, civil and democratic society is as opposed to one where terrorism threatens the country and its citizens.

We look forward to watching closely for further developments.

UN Condemns Terrorists’ Use of Human Shields

The United Nations General Assembly adopted an update of its Global Counter Terrorism Strategy today. Thanks to diplomatic efforts by Israel’s Mission to the UN in cooperation with the United States Mission, this year’s resolution included an unprecedented paragraph that condemns the use of civilians as human shields by terrorist organizations.

“Today’s resolution is another important step in our efforts as we change the rules of the game at the UN,” said Israel’s Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon

Supreme Court Upholds Travel Ban

A US Supreme Court ruling has upheld President Trump’s travel ban, which prevents most immigrants, refugees and visa holders from five Muslim-majority countries – Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen, along with North Korea and Venezuela, from entering the US.

“The Proclamation is expressly premised on legitimate purposes: preventing entry of nationals who cannot be adequately vetted and inducing other nations to improve their practices,” Chief Justice Roberts wrote. “The text says nothing about religion.”

Outrageous Harassment of IDF Soldiers Must Be Outlawed

We’ve Seen It – IDF Soldiers Being Harassed by ‘Machsom Watch’ – Outrageous and Disgraceful – What Other Army Would Permit It?

A new bill aimed to protect IDF soldiers from harassment by radical left-wing activists passed the preliminary Knesset reading last week.

The bill, which would prohibit the filming of IDF soldiers while on operational duty with intent to disrupt their activities, was drafted following material compiled by Im Tirtzu on the activities of the far-left NGO “Machsom Watch.”

Kuwaiti Arab Writer Speaks the Truth About Israel – Must Watch Video

To hear it is to believe it.

Read a few comments made by prestigious Kuwaiti Arab writer Abdullah Al-Hadlaq who says Israel is a legitimate state, not an occupier.

“Like it or not, Israel is an independent and sovereign state,” Abdullah Al-Hadlaq said. “It exists, and it has a seat at the United Nations, and most peace-loving and democratic countries recognize it.”

“When the State of Israel was established in 1948, there was no state called ‘Palestine’”

“There is no occupation.” “There is a people returning to its promised land.”

To believe it, watch the video below.

Israeli Police Station, Placed to Prevent PA Plundering, Removed From Temple Mount

An Israeli police station that was recently opened on the Temple Mount has been removed. One reason for it being there was that during the month of Ramadan, when NO JEWS ARE ALLOWED ON THE MOUNT, the Arabs plundered archaeological treasures. The station was placed there to stop the thievery and destruction. For some reason, once PM Netanyahu met with Jordan’s King Abdullah, the station was removed. This is a disgrace. The Jordanian Waqf sources claim that the removal was to “give the Jordanian government a free hand in monitoring and regulating the behavior of non-Muslim visitors to the Mount.” That means even more restrictions on Jews on the Temple Mount.

Israeli Police stated: “Despite the claims by the Waqf, there has been no change to the policy of Israel Police regarding its role in law enforcement and keeping the peace. The claims are false and are the responsibility of those who made them.”

Keeping Israel Safe Means Responsibility to Jewish Citizens! Demolition of Jewish Homes is a Desecration of Jewish Values!

It was only last week on June 12 that Netanyahu demolished the Netiv Ha’avot Jewish community – all over a few inches of land. Pressure from AFSI and its supporters in America, along with Jews throughout the world, failed to prevent the destruction of Jewish homes. When did PA homes become more important to the Jewish state than the homes of their own people and citizens? This is SHAME & HUMILIATION!!

On June 17, another Jewish community, TAPUACH MAARAV, built in memory of Binyamin and Tali Kahane, who had been brutally murdered in a drive-by terror attack, was also destroyed. These are intolerable actions which PM Netanyahu MUST STOP.

AT THE SAME TIME THAT JEWISH HOMES ARE BEING DESTROYED, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu postponed the evacuation and demolition of five illegal “Palestinian” buildings in southern Hebron, in Sussya, following international pressure.

The JNS story speculates that the demolition may have been postponed in anticipation of the arrival this weekend of President Trump’s envoy to the Middle East, Jason Greenblatt and Jared Kushner.

Will Recognizing Israeli Sovereignty in the Golan Heights Be Trump’s Next Move?

AFSI maintains that questions surrounding the “recognition” of Israel’s’ sovereignty over the Golan Heights is wasted conversation because the Golan Heights exists as a strategic territory which has been held by the Jewish state for over 50 years. That is the REALITY!!

The real “recognition” needed is by nations of the world to accept the FACT that the Golan Heights will remain under Israel’s control whether “recognized” or not.
