Demanding Answers on Obama's War On Israel

By Jay Sekulow1483719143145

We’ve reported extensively on the Obama Administration’s unfaithful betrayal of Israel. But we are also taking action. 

This week we delivered another set of legal demands for records surrounding actions taken by President Obama’s Secretary of State, John Kerry, and his team in their treachery against Israel at the United Nations (U.N.) Security Council less than two weeks ago.

The Obama Administration’s betrayal of Israel has prompted harsh bipartisan criticism and even congressional efforts by our friends Senator Ted Cruz (TX) and Senator Lindsey Graham (SC) to cut funding to the U.N.

In our legal demands, submitted under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), we aim to get to the bottom of who was involved in the decisions leading up to the betrayal, what was communicated with Saeb Erekat, a key Palestinian negotiator, during his meeting with Secretary Kerry less than two weeks before the U.N. vote, and what other anti-Israel U.N. actions the Obama Administration secretly intends to orchestrate before President-Elect Donald Trump takes office later this month.

In sum, we asked for:

any and all records of discussions and decisions leading up to and surrounding the UN Security Council vote and adoption of Resolution 2334 on December 23, 2016, and the United States’ abstention therefrom and decision to not veto same.

Our advocacy for Israel continues full-throttle on other fronts. For example, we represent the Gush Etzion Foundation in a frivolous lawsuit brought by anti-Israel Palestinian agitators in federal court here in Washington, DC.  Filing deadlines in that case are quickly approaching.  ACLJ attorneys continue to engage this issue through aggressive media advocacy (here, here, and here).

We also continue to advocate for Israel at the U.N. General Assembly and in other international fora through our affiliate office the European Centre for Law and Justice, and even in Israel itself, through our Jerusalem office. 

We will not back down from this fight. We will defend Israel. As I told the U.N., “It is a struggle we will win. We have no option.”

Defend Israel; Don’t Cripple Its Borders

UN Entity Calls Israel “Apartheid State”

By Mark Goldfeder1489787679822

This past week, the United Nation's Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), released a preposterous report declaring that Israel was an “apartheid state.” Further, it outrageously recommends bringing the State of Israel “to an end.” The report, which the U.N. Secretary General has...
