Palestinian terrorists have launched more than 300 terror attacks against innocent Israelis since the beginning of this month in the form of knife and screwdriver stabbings, car-rammings, and rock throwing.  These terror attacks have resulted in the deaths of at least seven innocent Israelis, and in the wounding of dozens — many of them sustaining very serious injuries.  In the past week alone thirteen Jewish children in Israel have become orphans. The new wave of Palestinian violence has largely been misreported on or ignored by the mainstream media. Palestinian terrorists are encouraged to wage attacks against Israelis by the Palestinian Authority’s (PA) President, Mahmoud Abbas, PA officials, PA-controlled TV, and various clerics, one who called on Palestinians to “form stabbing quads,” and attack Jews “with axes and butcher knives.”
Please join us as we hear from Ambassador Yoram Ettinger to learn more about the recent escalation of terror attacks against Israelis, the PA’s vicious campaign of incitement to violence, and the root causes of the violence.
Ambassador (ret.) Yoram Ettinger is an insider on US-Israel relations, Mideast politics and overseas investments in Israel’s high tech.  He is a member of the American-Israel Demographic Research Group (AIDRG), which has documented dramatic flaws behind demographic fatalism on one hand and a Jewish demographic momentum on the other hand. He served as Minister for Congressional Affairs at Israel’s Embassy in Washington (with a rank of an ambassador), Israel’s Consul General in Houston and Director of Israel’s Government Press Office. Since leaving the embassy, Mr. Ettinger has served as a consultant to Israeli Cabinet Members, legislators and to the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee. He serves as a consultant to members of Israel’s Cabinet and Knesset, and regularly briefs US legislators and their staff on Israel’s contribution to vital US interests, on the root causes of international terrorism and on other issues of bilateral concern. He is often interviewed on Israeli TV and radio and is a frequent contributor to most of Israel’s newspapers including Israel HaYom, Yediot Achronot, Ma’ariv, Ynet, News First Class, Jerusalem Post as well as to many American radio stations and newspapers. Yoram has served in various positions for the Government of Israel, is President of “US-Israel Opportunities Ltd.” and has been a lecturer at Hebrew University in both US and Middle East Politics.
