Today President Trump together with PM Netanyahu launched the new initiative for regional peace. Israel has aspired to peace with all of its neighbors since its establishment.

PM Netanyahu: "Mr. President, because of this historic recognition, and because I believe your peace plan strikes the right balance where other plans have failed, I have agreed to negotiate peace with the Palestinians on the basis of your peace plan."

Each year thousands of young Israelis visit the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp, as well as other Nazi concentration camps and pay tribute to the millions of Jews killed in the Holocaust . Many of these young Israelis have family members who either perished in the Holocaust or survived it to rise from the ashes, rebuilding their lives in Israel.

The high-school students return to Israel with a deeper understanding of their Jewish identity, many of them expressing that they gained an even more profound appreciation for Israel as their Jewish homeland.

As the number of Holocaust survivors dwindles, it is now more important than ever that the younger generation keeps the memory of the Holocaust alive and ensures that the world never forgets this unfathomable atrocity.

"The Jewish people have learned the lessons of the Holocaust: to always take seriously the threats of those who seek our destruction; to confront threats when they are small; and above all, to always have the power to defend ourselves by ourselves."

Consul General of Israel in LA - Hillel Newman addressed last Sunday the Pacific Reform Rabbis gathering (PARR) in Palm Springs.

Israel & North American Jewry face common challenges. We must work together. For that reason I was so pleased to be invited to join and address the Pacific Association of Reform Rabbis Annual Conference (PARR) in Palm Springs. My deep appreciation to the organizers (Rabbi Lawrence Goldmark, Rabbi Evan Goodman, Rabbi Cheryl Rosenstein and others) for the invitation, and to the rabbis in attendance for the important conversation. May you all be blessed in your sacred work!

Honorable Prime Minister Netanyahu,

On behalf of the Foreign Ministry's personnel working in Jerusalem and its various diplomatic missions around the globe, welcome to Athens.

Upon the arrival of yourself and Mrs. Netanyahu you will be received, as always, by Foreign Ministry personnel - those who always toil day and night to make the arrangements for your successful visits, coordinate all aspects of such visits to their smallest detail and initiate events. Thus, it is Foreign Ministry personnel that once more enables a successful Israeli Prime Ministerial visit โ€“as they do to numerous destinations around the world - assisting your international campaign and helping to realize another achievement in Israel's international success- together with you and for the people of Israel.

Let us recall that our Embassy in Athens, just like more than hundred other missions around the world, has been working with no real budget for a long time, which seriously harms Israel's national interest and their valuable daily function in many crucial spheres.

Where are we heading, and how will it be possible to carry on much longer, when the prolonged daily reality is that we are no longer able to continue to perform even the most basic diplomatic functions, those essential to promote the foreign agenda of the Government of Israel vis-ร -vis its international counterparts?

Prime Minister, you are well aware of the war the Finance Ministry has been waging against Israel's representatives from the Foreign, Defense and Economy Ministries serving abroad โ€“ constantly harming and eroding their livelihood and work conditions.

As someone who himself served in the most important diplomatic postings, you know the importance of the work of diplomats. No-one can better estimate the long-term damage caused by the crippling of those working in the diplomatic forefront.
Surely You know them to be a real national asset for the advancement of the interests of the state of Israel, the unsung heroes whose work has recently been put under constant attacks by the Finance Ministry.

We call upon you, as you have promised several times in the past, to intervene immediately and stop the abuse by the Ministry of Finance.

We are confident in your ability to find a satisfactory solution to this stalemate, and wish you success in your visit to Greece, whose importance is evident.

Respectfully yours,

The family of Foreign Ministry Personnel and their representatives

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu:
This is a dark day for truth and justice.

The ICC prosecutor has decided not to dismiss outright the Palestinian claim against the State of Israel. It is a baseless and outrageous decision.

The court has no jurisdiction in this case. The ICC only has jurisdiction over petitions submitted by sovereign states. But there has never been a Palestinian state.

The ICC prosecutor's decision has turned the International Criminal Court into a political tool to delegitimize the State of Israel. The prosecutor has completely ignored the legal arguments we presented to her.

She has also completely ignored history and the truth when she says that the very act of Jews living in their ancestral homeland, the land of the Bible, that this a war crime.

We will not be silent. We will not bow our heads before this outrage. We will continue to speak out against this travesty of justice.
