Save Netiv HaAvot Houses From Being Destroyed Tomorrow

Call or write to the Prime Minister. Phone numbers and a corrected link to message the Prime Minister's Office via their website are below.

Everything has to do with how much pressure is placed on the PMO - Prime Minister's Office TODAY, from people around the country and around the world.
Bombard Bibi's office with a simple request: Ignore the Bagatz. It does not make sense to destroy a community because of a 15 meter housing infraction.
If 1,000 people call the PMO with this message, in an assertive yet not abusive way, those calls might affect policy.

History Being Made in Singapore

Tuesday, June 12 at 9 am (or tonight 9 pm NYC time), President Donald J. Trump will meet in Singapore in an historic face to face meeting with North Korea's dictator Kim Jong-Un.

President Trump intends to hold firm on his demand that North Korea commit to full denuclearization. There are also serious human rights issues that must come into the conversation. The agenda is a complicated and sensitive one whose outcome holds great importance for America, Israel, and the world. AFSI is hoping for a successful and productive meeting between the two leaders.
Industrial Zone Project
Approved for
Judea and Samaria

Final approval was received on a project to build the largest industrial zone in Judea and Samaria, which will cover an area of approximately 2 million square meters.

Yossi Dagan, Samaria Regional Council head said that "this is an historic move that is expected to change the face of …Samaria."

Work on the ground is expected to begin by the end of the year. More HERE.
Attempted Terror Attack
Thwarted in Samaria

Early yesterday morning, IDF forces identified a vehicle rushing towards them, during an operation in the Nur Shams refugee camp in northern Samaria.
With the understanding that this was an attempted terrorist attack, the IDF fired at the vehicle ultimately stopping the car.

There were no casualties.

Story HERE.
Report Card for Area C:
Regavim Exposes the Truth Again

In the past three years, nearly $25 million was contributed by the European Union for the express purpose of facilitating Arab control over Area C

Yesterday, Regavim presented undisputable data to the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee in a hearing convened by the Subcommittee on Judea and Samaria.

Said Yishai Hemo, field coordinator for Judea and Samaria at Regavim: "In light of the scope of the P.A.'s activities and the massive funding that enables this program, the Civil Administration must treat agricultural land seizure as a phenomenon of strategic importance, and not merely as a localized violation of law."
Confronting Enemies from Within
Minimizing the damage to Israel that is caused by embracing anti-Semitic Jews and their hate messages is the challenge we must stand up to and confront.

AFSI Chicago Co-Chairmen, Cheryl Lewin and Brian Pikelny, represented AFSI at the Greater Chicago Jewish Festival yesterday and reported that J Street and If Not Now were given tables at the festival. Both organizations are well known for their anti-Israel rhetoric.

Caroline Glick's Opinion piece in the Jerusalem Post covers this topic and is today's must read.

Alarming Trend

AFSI recently reported on The Beacon School in NYC and how it asked students to pray for those we know are Hamas operatives.

Brooklyn's Midwood High School students were recently used as instruments to advocate terrorism when they were targeted for the distribution of Hamas propaganda claiming to pay tribute to the "Palestinian victims of violence in Gaza."

Thank you to AFSI Board member and JCCWatch Founder Richard Allen for sending us this must know story.
Rudy Giuliani States the Facts

Gaza Kite Terror Causes Nearly 20 Fires in Israel

Firebomb-carrying kites from Gaza caused at least seventeen fires on Saturday alone. Locations included Kibbutz Nir Am, Kibbutz Ein Hashlosha, and Sderot's train station. The Israeli government has shown extraordinary restraint in confronting the kite makers with the argument that the fires are not endangering lives. AFSI takes issue with that position. Lives might definitely be endangered. Firefighters are in danger while fighting the fires. Fields and forests are being destroyed by the fires, costing Israeli farmers and Israel huge amounts of money. A fire at the Sderot train station caused immeasurable damage . This is unacceptable. AFSI maintains that the fire terrorism is as dangerous as any other form of terrorism and must be stopped. The IDF can do it. This battle must be won!!

Demonstration of Kfar Duma
Interrogation Torture Methods

This article in Honenu is clearly pro Elisha Odess. It demonstrates that the entire Duma situation was a trap to ensnare the hilltop youth. So disgraceful.

When the Duma case first broke, AFSI took the position that the boys should be considered innocent until proven guilty. That is the American way. The continued incarceration of Israeli youngsters under the old law of "administrative detention" must come to an end. Put the boys on trial, present the evidence against them, allow the defense attorneys to present their evidence, and let justice prevail.
