U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley, Feb. 16, 2017:

"I just put out to the members of the Seucrity Council to help me understand: When we have so much going on in the world, why is it that every single month we're going to sit down and have a hearing where all they do is obsess over Israel?"

The first thing I want to do is talk about what we just saw in there. The Security Council just finished its regular monthly meeting on Middle East issues. It’s the first meeting like that that I’ve attended, and I have to say it was a bit strange. The Security Council is supposed to discuss how to maintain international peace and security. But at our meeting on the Middle East, the discussion was not about Hizballah’s illegal build-up of rockets in Lebanon. It was not about the money and weapons Iran provides to terrorists. It was not about how we defeat ISIS. It was not about how we hold Bashar al-Assad accountable for the slaughter of hundreds and thousands of civilians.
No, instead, the meeting focused on criticizing Israel, the one true democracy in the Middle East. I am new around here, but I understand that’s how the Council has operated, month after month, for decades. ...

Yair Lapid [Flash 90]"Lapid: Stop supporting the extreme left" 
Yair Lapid sends scathing letter to Belgian ambassador after Belgian PM meets with Breaking the Silence and B'tselem.

Yesh Atid Chairman Yair Lapid expressed surprised at Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel's meetings with leading figures in radical left anti-Zionist NGOs Breaking the Silence and B'tselem during Michel's recent visit to Israel.

In a letter to the Belgian ambassador, Lapid wrote, "My son serves in the army, he's in a tank unit. He's a good kid with strong morals - just like his friends and commanders. During the past few years, they've spent a good deal of time saving injured Syria children and bringing them to Israeli hospitals. They are patriots and they are law-abiding."

Lapid also called on the Belgian ambassador to stop Belgium's support for organizations which malign IDF soldiers. ...

Franse Minister van Buitenlandse Zaken Jean-Marc Ayrault Open brief van David Harris, CEO van AJC aan de Franse Minister van Buitenlandse Zaken Jean-Marc Ayrault n.a.v. het door Frankrijk georganiseerde Vredesoverleg gepland op 15 januari e.k. te Parijs - Gepubliceerd op 09/01/2017 in Huffington Post:

"Dear French Foreign Minister Ayrault

I take the liberty of writing this open letter in the wake of the latest Palestinian terror attack, which killed four young Israelis and wounded many others in an assault eerily similar to the one in Nice in July, and days ahead of the "Middle East peace conference" in Paris you will be hosting.

I do so with respect, coming from a Francophone home and with deep roots in France and French culture.

I do so representing an organization, AJC, that has engaged with France at the highest levels for decades, and that, even when we have disagreed vigorously, has rejected those in the Jewish community who have called for boycotts and spread "fake news" about the situation in your country.

And I do so, if I may say, no less eager than you to find a lasting solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, ideally based on a two-state agreement. ...

Het Forum der Joodse Organisaties heeft met afschuw kennisgenomen van een Facebook post van Abou Jahjah waarin hij de lafhartige car ramming in Jeruzalem "alleszins noodzakelijk" noemt. Bij de aanslag met een vrachtauto die op een groepje soldaten inreed vielen vier doden en een tiental gewonden, onder wie enkele zeer ernstige.

Abou Jahjah noemde op zijn Facebook pagina de terroristische aanslag "geen terrorisme, maar een verzetsdaad ".

Noch de lafhartige aanvallen op burgers in Europa, noch die op Israëli's kunnen moreel of juridisch worden vergoelijkt als een legitieme respons op vermeend onrecht dat de daders zou zijn aangedaan.

Het FJO wijst erop dat de schokkende uitspraken van Jahjah passen in een lange reeks waarin hij geweld en moord op onschuldige Joden en Israëli's goedpraat en verheerlijkt. ...

JOHN KERRY_JAMES LAWLER DUGGAN  REUTERSOpen brief van David Harris, CEO van AJC aan de Amerikaanse Minister van Buitenlandse Zaken John Kerry - gepubliceerd op 28/12/2016 in Huffington Post:

"Dear Secretary Kerry

I listened with rapt attention to your speech today on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

I did so as someone who has yearned for an end to this conflict for decades, who grasps that the essential Jewish mission has always been the all-too-elusive quest for peace, and whose organization, AJC, has advocated for a two-state solution for nearly 25 years.

And I did so as one who understands that settlement-building beyond the security barrier is indeed a major impediment to the prospects for a final-status accord.

Moreover, I believe in your good will. ...
