Israel’s prime minister spoke to the United Nations General Assembly in New York City today, and bravely defended his nation against the libel of war crimes in Operation Protective Edge. He also boldly implored world leaders to recognize the danger of Iran’s nuclear weapons ambitions and take decisive action to neutralize the threat before it is too late. Watch Netanyahu’s powerful speech in the video below.

Israel’s native Aramean Christian population is a very small but ancient group with ties to the Holy Land stretching back thousands of years. These people have a unique culture all their own, and still speak Aramaic, the language spoken by Jesus and his contemporaries. When Arabs conquered the Holy Land in the seventh century, the local Christian population learned to survive by coexisting with Islam and learning to speak Arabic. For this reason, Aramean Christians have been mistakenly known as “Arabs” for several centuries. But for the last several years, members of this unique ethnic group have been lobbying for…

Hamas adopted a strategy that abuses and sacrifices Gaza’s civilians. Hamas hides behind Palestinian civilians, mosques, churches, hospitals, hotels, UN facilities and UNRWA schools while indiscriminately firing at Israeli civilians. This is a double war crime. Hamas’ war crimes and violations of basic morality should be widely condemned by all persons of conscience. The world should be outraged by Hamas’ use of human shields in Gaza.

Lee Habeeb, VP of content at Salem Radio Network, and Mike Leven, president and COO of the Las Vegas Sands, wrote this opinion piece for National Review Online. “The fact is that there is an occupying force in Gaza, and it’s Hamas. There is in increasingly larger swaths of the Middle East a real occupying force, and it is radical Islam in its various iterations. All of them are committed to ending not only Israel’s occupation of the West Bank, but Israel’s occupation of Israel.” Read the full story here.

The Wall Street Journal on Wednesday reported that the Obama Administration held up a delivery of missiles to Israel during its recent war in Gaza against the terrorist organization Hamas. In a phone call with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu the same day, Obama reportedly repeated his demand that Israel implement an immediate, unilateral, unconditional and permanent ceasefire in Gaza. Israeli officials responding to the latest pressure from US President Barack Obama said the American leader is weak and naive, suggesting that Washington, which today has little leverage anywhere else in the Middle East, is trying to strong-arm the Jewish state.…

On Monday, the Foreign Press Association in Israel issued a strong statement of protest on their website against the harassment and intimidation of their journalists in Gaza. The FPA protests in the strongest terms the blatant, incessant, forceful and unorthodox methods employed by the Hamas authorities and their representatives against visiting international journalists in Gaza over the past month. The international media are not advocacy organizations and cannot be prevented from reporting by means of threats or pressure, thereby denying their readers and viewers an objective picture from the ground. In several cases, foreign reporters working in Gaza have been…

New York City’s most prominent ministers are taking a stand for Israel. These ministers are concerned about the shift away from traditional American support for Israel among the nation’s youth. A recent poll shows that only 18% of Americans between the ages of 18-29 blame Hamas for the current conflict in Gaza. Alarmingly, 29% of these youth blame Israel for the conflict. These youth view the Palestinians in Gaza as the underdogs, and sympathize with their suffering. According to Rev. Jacques Degraff, however, this is an inaccurate view based on misinformation. Degraff said, “We’re not talking about the Palestinians. We’re…

Israel does not target civilians nor UN facilities, and deeply regrets every civilian casualty in Gaza. Israel has gone to unprecedented lengths to keep Palestinian civilians out of harm’s way, including multiple warnings (dropping leaflets, making phone calls, and sending texts) and aborting missions when civilians were recognized nearby. Israeli officials have said, “The people of Gaza are not our enemy. Our enemy is Hamas and the terrorist organizations trying to kill and endanger our people.” Watch these videos of the Israel Defense Forces acting with extreme caution to move innocent Gazans out of harm’s way before attacking Hamas. Have…
