All dietary laws observed. Please direct any questions to dheffernan@emetonline.org The last two months of the Obama Administration might prove to be very dangerous for the long-term survival of Israel. We are afraid that this lame-duck session might be an opportunity for President Obama to refrain from vetoing a French proposal for unilateral Palestinian statehood along the pre-1967 lines. This might be something that Israel's enemies could use to take Israel to the International Criminal Court of Justice…

December 20, 2016 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Phone Conference, Washington, DC 20007 United States + Google Map

"Russia's Intentions in the Middle East" featuring Dr. Ariel Cohen Tuesday, December 20, 2016 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. (ET) Call-In Number: (712) 432-0075   Participant Code: 397784 Submit a question for Dr. Cohen Just yesterday the Russian Ambassador to Turkey was shot and killed while attending and event, and with the recent intense bombings of Aleppo by Russia slaughtering thousands of Syrians, and the successful offensives by the pro-Assad forces in the country, the international community has become increasingly concerned by the escalating bloodshed in that nation.  More than 500,000 Syrians have been killed, and millions have been driven into exile, which has greatly destabilized the Middle East and Europe. Russian President Vladimir Putin has become a dominate player in the Syrian civil war, and the region, and has largely blocked a strong American role under the Obama Administration.  The Russians have brought planes, tanks, ships, and men to Syria to help the Syrian dictator Assad, and already have two separate bases in the country, giving the Russians their long desired "warm…

Phone Seminar: The Truth from Jerusalem

December 29, 2016 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Phone Seminar: The Truth from Jerusalem  Featuring Ambassador Yoram Ettinger Thursday, December 29, 2016 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. (ET) Call-In Number: (712) 432-0075 Participant Code: 397784 Secretary of State John Kerry delivered a scathing attack on the State of Israel in a speech he delivered Wednesday, during which he defended the United States' decision not to veto the anti-Israel United Nations resolution condemning the "settlements," and blasted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Kerry's speech, which lasted more than an hour, was filled with false accusations against the Jewish State, including his remark that "If the choice is one state, Israel can either be Jewish or democratic, it cannot be both, and it won't ever really be at peace." His words come on the heels of the US reversing decades-long policy of vetoing diplomatic moves against Israel at the United Nations. To what extent has Kerry's speech, and last Friday's anti-Israel UN resolution, impacted US-Israel relations? What are the political and legal ramifications of the UN resolution? Should we expect…

RSVP Here Coffee, tea and pastries to be served. All dietary laws observed. Please direct any questions to Deanne at dheffernan@emetonline.org The anti-Israel United Nations Security Council Resolution passed last month was a demonization of the Jewish State. In addition to the many fallacies within it, the resolution seeks to deny the Jewish connection to the capitol of the State of Israel - Jerusalem - and rewrite history by referring to East Jerusalem as "occupied Palestinian territory." The UN has a long history of singling out the Jewish State, and denying the Jewish and Christian connect to the land. In October 2016, UNESCO, the U.N.'s Education, Scientific…

The United States should defund and withdraw form the United Nations and reconstitute the movement to achieve world peace for all…
