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.

The ACLJ has just obtained a crucial Obama Administration report on an anti-Israel U.N. agency, which many in Congress believe will expose the U.N. agency’s fraudulent over-reporting on the number of Palestinian “refugees.” Until now, the Obama State Department’s report on United Nations Relief and...
They did it again. Only weeks after some of the most violent attacks on Israel in years, more rockets rained down on Israeli communities. Israel’s enemies would like the world to somehow view them as victims, as they accuse Israel of war crimes and aggression. Yet once again, red alert sirens were...
In our ongoing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit , the ACLJ has just uncovered what appears to be direct correspondence between the CEO of an anti-Israel group that was being funded by the Obama State Department and undisclosed recipients at the State Department itself. This revelation...
Begin with the sobering fact that last week Israel and the United States celebrated a long overdue moment: the United States, as required by the Jerusalem Embassy Act , recognized Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel by relocating its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. While all...
