Action Alert: Call Your Elected Officials and Ask Them to Support the Nomination of David Friedman and to Express Dismay Over UNSC Resolution 2334

Please Call Your Senators and Congressman and Ask Them to Support the Nomination of David Friedman as America’s Ambassador to Israel and to Express Your Profound Disappointment Over UNSC Resolution 2334

For  far too long, the State Department and our Ambassadors to Israel, while pretending to be “honest brokers” have had a decidedly anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian bias, totally ignoring the one condition that has ever been placed on the Palestinians: to stop the incitement to violence and murder.  This has culminated in a culture that deifies the “shahid,” the martyr, the suicide bomber and knife stabber, and demonizes the Israeli and the Jew.  It has also culminated in the decidedly anti-Israel resolution in the United Nations Security Council, Resolution 2334, which condemns Israel for “illegally” building in land which Israel was forced to occupy in its defensive war of 1967, including East Jerusalem, where the holiest site in Judaism, our Western Wall, sits. This resolution will only serve to reinforce the violence that is already rampant within the Palestinian Authority (PA), and indicates to PA that they can literally get away with murder. This sort of unilateral action at the U.N. and Palestinian reliance on the international community has enabled the Palestinians to bypass direct, face-to face negotiations with the Israelis, whom, at the end of the day, the Palestinians have to live with. This is something that President Obama himself has stated in February of 2011, when he had then vetoed a similar Security Council resolution.  Rather than doing the difficult work of building trust with the Israelis, the Palestinians have chosen to litigate against the Israelis in the court of international public opinion, and have resorted to a bloody campaign of violence, and then expect statehood to be handed to them, gratis.

For the last several years, American ambassadors to Israel have exemplified this profound bias against Israel, and it has not gotten us any closer to the goal of peace between the Palestinians and Israelis. It is therefore refreshing that President-Elect Donald Trump has selected an Ambassador to Israel, Mr. David Friedman, who does not share the same biases that are so rampant within the State Department. At a time when the entire world is being plagued by the scourge of radical Islamic terrorism, it is important that we finally have an ambassador to Israel that understands the moral distinction between building an apartment in a suburb of Jerusalem and the wanton murder of innocent civilians.

Please Call Your Elected Officials Immediately and Express Your Support for the Nomination of David Friedman as Ambassador to Israel and Your Profound Disappointment Over the Obama administration’s Enabling the Passage of Resolution 2334, by Not Vetoing this Pernicious and Openly One Sided Resolution.

Obama’s farewell ‘gift’ to Israel

With less than a month to go until he leaves office, President Barack Obama is trying to do his utmost to leave Israel in as vulnerable and indefensible a position as possible since the outbreak of the 1967 Six-Day War.

The outgoing administration’s decision not to veto the U.N. Security Council resolution on the settlements attested to this, and went against long-standing American policy that the conflict must be resolved directly between the two parties.

The Hidden Agenda of the BDS Movement

There is a war raging across the United States and the world–a war that is being fought through infiltration and propaganda, trying to reach the hearts and minds of young people who think they are advocating for justice and peace. This is the work of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which masks its true motives behind the slogan, “Freedom, Justice, Equality,” yet demonizes the State of Israel and systematically compares it to apartheid South Africa.

US Taxpayer Dollars Contribute to BDS Activity and Anti-Semitism on College Campuses

The Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement has been dominating the conversation on anti-Israel activity at universities over the past few years. Yet few have heard of the interconnected issue involving the misuse of funding from Title VI educational grant programs, which is an underlying factor contributing to the growth of BDS and anti-Semitic activity on college campuses around our nation. Both problems urgently need to be addressed.

Jewish Student Community Being Shut Out From Fight Against U.K. Campus Anti-Semitism

In the United Kingdom, the Jewish student community is being increasingly shut out of the decision making process concerning identifying and combatting anti-Semitism on university campuses. Recently, the National Union of Students (NUS) in the UK approved a motion which guarantees minority groups, including the Jewish community, representation on the Anti-Racism Anti-Fascism (ARAF) committee.
