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.

The enemies of Israel continue to pull out every weapon in their arsenal to destroy Israel and Jewish people everywhere. The ACLJ continues to fight at every stage and in every place. The latest battleground is the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel. Earlier this week,
We have previously written about the international Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movement being pushed by anti-Israel groups around the world, including many here in the U.S. The primary aim of the movement is to marginalize and delegitimize Israel on the national scene by pressuring...
