Erase Slide 43″ The UN Wants What??

“..Erase Slide 43” The UN Wants What??
The UN has conditioned Israel’s request for an exhibit on the Knesset at UN headquarters in New York on the removal of some content. This includes deleting references to Jerusalem as the country’s capital.
The exhibit, titled “The Knesset Celebrates 70 — Parliament Shaping Israeli Society,” was previously displayed at Ben Gurion Airport in 2019
Israel’s delegation to the United Nations was asked to display the exhibit at UN headquarters, but was told, “Please erase slide 43: According to relevant General Assembly and Security Council decisions, the Basic Law: Jerusalem, Capital of Israel, is not valid from our point of view,” the UN was quoted as saying in its instructions. The UN also instructed Israel to remove text accompanying a photo of the Knesset that describes Jerusalem as “the eternal capital of the Jewish people and their holy city.”
Facts are facts and the UN needs to come face it. Slide 43 does not contradict international law. Jerusalem is the united Capital of Israel. Jerusalem is the eternal Capital of the Jewish people and their holy city. Jerusalem will not be deleted to satisfy your never ending political hostility to Israel. Sorry, not sorry. It’s not happening.

Yesha Council:
This Gov’t Should Be Toppled
Yesha Council leaders launched a campaign Sunday to bring down the coalition and force a new round of elections due to what they deem as biased government policies. The Council was prompted by the government’s decision to “freeze” Jewish construction in Judea/Samaria, while effectively ignoring any illegal Arab construction.
The press conference was held in front of Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s Jerusalem office. Yesha chair David Elhayani accused Gantz of ceding Israeli territory to the Palestinians and endangering national security. “Thus this government has no right to exist and should be toppled,” he concluded. Shomron Council head Yossi Dagan added: “The government is destroying [Homesh] and freezing construction in the “West Bank,” all while abandoning the Negev. Such a government will fall.”
AFSI applauds the Yesha Council for advancing its activism in the fight to secure Israel’s land. We continue to remain alarmed by the about face Prime Minister Bennett takes as he appeases the PA. Let’s not forget that Bennett himself is a former chairman of the Yesha Council, which makes his actions today all the more disturbing. Until Bennett does an about-face and holds true to his election promises, he cannot be trusted and is a threat to Israel’s safety and sovereignty.

Solidarity With Israel
Anti-Semitic crimes are up 400% in NYC. Anti-Zionism is one form of anti-Semitism. Zionaphobics will be demonstrating in front of the Friends of IDF headquarters inciting violence against Jews here and in Israel. They will be demanding the closure of Friends of the IDF. They will be calling for intifada which is a pogrom targeting Jews in Israel. They will be calling for death to Israel and the US. This must not go unanswered. One way narratives are dangerous. We are asking that you wear an IDF hoodie/shirt, hoodie/shirt with the flag of Israel or Jerusalem or any other article of clothing which demonstrates that you are “visibly Zionist.” More info on Facebook HERE

How to Fight World War III
With Kenneth Abramowitz, founder of “Save the West”, a website dedicated to saving America from itself! Few people realize that Western civilization is facing existential danger from unprecedented economic, cultural, and military threats. On a deeper level, few people in the West understand or appreciate who “we” are, how we became so prosperous and free, who our enemies are, and how to preserve our civilization. Ken also serves on AFSI’s Advisory Council.

We are an educational organization created to support an undivided Israel.
AFSI was founded in 1970 as an American counterpart to the Land of Israel Movement, asserting Israel’s historic, religious, and legal rights to the land re-claimed in the 1967 war. AFSI has argued consistently that a strong, territorially defensible Israel is essential to U.S. and global security interests in the region, and that the “two-state solution,” would endanger the world, while bringing the dissolution of Israel.
We are a national organization with chapters throughout the country and members throughout the world. All are dedicated to the premise that a strong Israel is essential to Western interests in the Middle East, and that the Jewish communities in Judea, Samaria and the Golan are the best guarantee against strategic vulnerability, as were the Gush Katif communities.
AFSI supports a policy of “peace for peace” between the Arab states and Israel, and rejects “peace for territory.” AFSI opposes spending U.S. tax dollars, estimated to be in the billions, to fund a phantom “peace” plan.
Send a message to the detractors of Israel in the media, the Administration, and the public by joining AFSI and becoming active in your community chapter.
