On the subject of sovereignty for Judea and Samaria, PM Netanyahu recently revealed that “With regards to the Sovereignty Law, I can tell you that for a while now I’ve been discussing the issue with the Americans.”
The Arutz Sheva article goes on to state: It is crucial, Netanyahu continued, “to coordinate with the Americans as much as possible, since our ties with them are a strategic investment for both the State of Israel and the settlement enterprise. [Sovereignty] needs to be a government program, not a private effort, because this is a historic change.”
On the subject of sovereignty, in an excellent OpEd in Arutz Sheva by Oded Revivi, Mayor of Efrat, firmly asserts that, “It is time then for the Israeli government to internalize the fact that there is no way to turn the clock back, time for it to take a courageous stand and apply Israeli law to the legal jungle that has been allowed to grow unchecked for the past 50 years.”
“What we’ve known for a long time is now clear to everyone: Iran wants to establish a front in Syria that is aimed at harming Israel. We are not looking to escalate the situation, but we have abilities that we are not afraid to use,” said Major General Yoel Strick, Head of the Northern Command.

Of the six million Jews murdered in the Holocaust of WWII, it is estimated that 3.5 million were exterminated by the Nazis in six killing camps located in Poland. The camps were Chelmno, Belzec, Sobibor, Treblinka, Majdanek and the best known one, Auschwitz-Birkenau. The round-up of the Polish Jews was aided and abetted by the anti-Semitic Polish population, who gleefully looted the homes and shops of the Jewish victims. The Poles, with few exceptions, were collaborators who served as Hitler’s willing workers. History also records Polish pogroms against Jews after the war when survivors returned to look for their homes. Many were murdered mercilessly. Now, the Poles seem to be offended because they are linked to the Nazi death camps. Now Poland is “making it a crime to ascribe any responsibility for the Holocaust to the Polish state or the Polish people.” This in itself is a crime, since no amount of Polish legislation can erase their guilt and complicity in this heinous stain on history.
AFSI Chairman Mark Langfan’s Arutz Sheva article this week focuses on the “House Intelligence Committee’s “Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act Abuses (FISA),” which outlines explicit prima facie criminal behavior that starts with former FBI Director James Comey and seems to end with President Obama. It may be the greatest subversion of the US Constitution ever, one that will expose the United States to necessary additional independent prosecution to unravel and uncover a far-reaching Obama Administration criminal enterprise.”

As financial aid continues to be funneled to the Palestinians, we know the money fails to reach the one place it is sorely needed and that is for the welfare of the “Palestinians”.
An article in Gatestone Institute written by Khaled Abu Toameh clearly discusses this blemish.
While their leader Mahmoud Abbas speaks before parliaments and assemblies of many countries, his own people in Syria and the Gaza Strip are being killed due to senseless fighting and dying because of a lack of food and medicine. Hospitals are running short of fuel needed to keep operating.
How is it that Mahmoud Abbas spent $50 million on a new “presidential plane”? A leader should take responsibility for the needs of his people first. Enough said.
“When the refugee card began to wear thin, the Palestinian terrorist appeared on the scene flourishing not the arguable claims of displaced refugees but of a ghoulish nationalism that could only be sated on the corpse of Israel.”
This quote is from a New York Times article dated January 24, 1976 written by former Prime Minister Golda Meir. Sadly, her words still ring true and illustrate how between then and now – nothing has changed.
AFSI is proud to have its name cited favorably in media sources.
Lori Lowenthal Marcus, when asked about groups that supported her during her seven year effort to get a 501C3 tax exempt status for her pro-Israel organization, Z Street, from the Obama government, gave credit to AFSI for standing by her. She did it in an interview with Phyllis Chesler and also in a radio interview. We thank Lori for acknowledging AFSI, and remind our readers that AFSI always stands up for what is right, regardless of politically correct or mainstream views. Time, inevitably, proves us correct.
We applaud your decision to legalize Havat Gilad and other such communities. We also join you in the condemnation of yet another brutal terrorist murder, that of Rabbi Itamar Ben Gal.
HOWEVER another tragedy is about to occur – this time at the hands of the Israeli government. I am referring to the planned demolition of 16 homes in Netiv Avot. You know the details of the dispute so there is no need for me to repeat them. This puts a scar of shame on the face of Israel. We either embrace all our brethren in the Jewish homeland, or we have made a mockery of Israel’s purpose. The Supreme Court decision is biased, ignorant, unwarranted, and cruel. It must be overruled.
PLEASE do everything in your power to avert the severe decree.
