Danon Asks UN to Condemn Abbas Remarks

In a letter sent  to the UN Security Council, Israel’s UN Ambassador Danny Danon wrote:

“Such a hateful diatribe against a people who have undergone thousands of years of intolerable persecution, is completely unacceptable. I call on all leaders of good faith to condemn these repeated hateful remarks and demand a full and sincere apology from Mr. Abbas. The Security Council must not stand idly by in the face of this incitement and apparent denial of Israel’s right to exist.”

Im Tirtzu’s Campaign “Ridding Israel of the NIF” Continues

Last week, Im Tirtzu launched a new campaign against the New Israel Fund in light of the NIF’s increased anti-Israel activities.

The campaign began by placing a 100-foot long billboard on Tel-Aviv’s Ayalon Highway (along with hanging thousands of smaller posters throughout Israel), and by publishing a new report detailing the NIF’s modus operandi in delegitimizing Israel.

Below are two new videos from the campaign.
