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.
President Trump’s decision to defund the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) is, of course, the right move from a legal perspective, but lest there be any confusion, it also is the just and empathetic response towards an organization that long has done a disservice to the very population...
The ACLJ is directly engaged in fighting anti-Semitism all over the world and inside the United Nations. Now we’re fighting for Jewish students at universities right here at home. While we recently took legal action to fight for the Free Speech rights of a Christian to preach the Gospel on a public...
As the International Criminal Court (ICC ) continues to pursue actions against U.S. citizens, including veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the United States today moved to counter this international body which has a questionable reputation. The Trump Administration plans to sanction the...
Earlier this year, the President promised to cut funding to the terrorist affiliated Palestinian Authority (PA) as long as they continued to reward the families of terrorists. Now the President’s Administration has gone a step further, cutting off even more funding by withholding a significant sum...
