It’s a high-stakes showdown at the United Nations. The Palestinian Authority is pushing for complete statehood -- a move that not only violates international law and the U.N.'s own charter, but represents grave danger to Israel. The Palestinian Authority has embraced Hamas as part of its government -- a terrorist organization that vows to destroy Israel.
The ACLJ has embarked on a global strategy to protect Israel -- with legal and legislative teams at the U.N. -- in New York City; Strasbourg, France; Geneva and Jerusalem. This is a critical moment for Israel; a U.N. vote is expected at the end of this week. We must stand with Israel now. Sign the ACLJ petition calling on the United States to veto any U.N. measure granting the terrorist-backed Palestinian Authority statehood.
To: President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton
The terrorist groups, Hamas and the Palestinian Liberation Organization (P.L.O.), lead the Palestinian government -- both have the stated mission of destroying Israel and the Jewish people. After continually rejecting peace talks with Israel, they have chosen the unprecedented course of asking the United Nations to designate the Palestinian Authority as a sovereign state.
The U.N. admits existing nations to the international diplomatic community; it does not create nations. If it acts to create a terrorist-led Palestinian state -- with full membership at the U.N. -- it will not only violate its own charter, but international law as well.
The United States can act to stop this. The United States must keep its promise and veto the creation of the terrorist-led Palestinian state when it reaches the U.N. Security Council.
One of the more ridiculous aspects of the decades-long Middle East “peace process” is the belief that the so-called 1967 borders between Israel and Arab-held territory represent the foundation for a lasting piece. It’s never been true, it’s not true now, and there’s no realistic indication it will...
Late last week, a number of media outlets reported that the Obama Administration may be considering “sanctioning” Israel, an unthinkably destructive act against our closest Middle East ally? But is the report true? American media outlets source their suspicion back to this report , from Haaretz ,
Yesterday, the University of California’s student-worker union (UAW Local 2865) voted on whether to join the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel. While we don’t yet know the results of the vote, we do know that its supporters have been making deceptive legal arguments...
Next week the University of California student-workers union, UAW 2865 (yes, it’s affiliated with United Auto Workers), will vote on its Joint Council’s motion to boycott, divest, and sanction Israeli institutions. This motion is absurd on its face, but if it has any teeth at all it’s also illegal.
