I’m on my way to New York City to speak at the United Nations General Assembly tomorrow.
At the Ambassadors Against BDS International Summit at the U.N., my message is as simple as it is important – We stand against the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) Movement and we stand with Israel.
Just as I did last year, I’m speaking on the world’s stage to defend Israel, our greatest ally and the greatest bastion of human rights, democracy, and freedom in the Middle East.
I’m taking an entire team of senior ACLJ attorneys to New York with me, where we will spend hours working alongside global leaders to strategize how our legal advocacy can continue to defend Israel from those who question its legitimacy, discriminate against its citizens, and seek the destruction of this bastion of freedom in the Middle East.
I’ll tell the U.N. General Assembly about our many great victories on behalf of First Amendment freedoms here at home in America, where anti-Semitic attacks against Israel and its defenders on college campuses are increasing. But we’ve won every time we’ve engaged, defeating the cowardly, craven BDS proponents wherever they strike.
I’ll discuss the ACLJ’s significant legal and Government Affairs work combatting anti-Israel resolutions at the United Nations.
Within the last several weeks, a U.N. body published a preposterous report claiming Israel is an “apartheid state.” We immediately raised the alarm, and the full report was taken down.
Here’s what I know – every time that false claims are brought against Israel, our team at the ACLJ has been able to shine a light on the truth, systematically breaking down what domestic and international law says. And each time, by standing with Israel, we are able to prevail.
But just as I’m writing in my next book about the legal and historical case for the Jewish State of Israel, enemies of Israel will not be going away. They will only intensify their hatred and attempts to destroy Israel.
But we will not waver. We will continue defending Israel. And that’s what I’ll be doing at the United Nations tomorrow.
As we vigorously fight to defend Israel & the Jewish people from vicious attacks, every gift (even $5) makes an impact.
Yesterday we secured a massive federal court victory in the most significant U.S. federal court case in defense of Israel’s legitimacy as a Jewish state we’ve ever undertaken. Just over a year ago a group of Palestinian activists, led by the head of a family of notorious terrorists , Bassem...
There is a menacing threat growing on Israel’s northern border, and the United Nations (U.N.) is turning a blind eye. Enough is enough; the U.N. must take action. For thirteen years, Hezbollah – an officially recognized terrorist organization – has violated the U.N.’s mandate requiring a ceasefire...
Last December the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) dramatically increased its hypocritical, vile, and targeted attack against Israel by passing UNSC Resolution 2334 . This resolution preposterously insists that Jewish settlements, including the Jewish Quarter in Jerusalem are occupied...
Today, I am making a powerful presentation at the United Nations in support of Israel. Israel – and its capital Jerusalem – remain under withering attack, especially from a world body that is supposed to stand for freedom and stand against terror. Today, I, along with more than 250,000 of our ACLJ...
