Since the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teenagers last June and the revenge killing of a Palestinian teenager, we have known that what we are seeing is not just casual violence. Today, it is necessary to see the current situation as structural, not random.

It’s been another difficult week in Jerusalem. Tension has building over the past months. Indeed, it’s been building since before the terrible events of this past summer.

You and I are called to support the Israeli voices of reason who face challenges that were less prevalent in the past: growing racism, media concentration, legislation to limit freedom of expression.

Daniel discusses the Milky controversy at the epicenter of the current debate in Israel on the high cost of living and the launch of NIF Germany.

It is with deep sadness that I write to tell you that Leibel Fein – former NIF Board member, IC member, and champion of the Israel we believe in – died early this morning. A great light has gone out.
