Since September of last year, Israelis are suffering a wave of terror with 317 attacks (more than two per day) and 34 casualties. The new terrorist strategy, as it has been in the past, aims to make life unbearable for Israelis by threatening them in every corner of their cities and by impeding them to lead a normal life. These attacks, apparently uncoordinated and carried out by lone wolves, have been fueled by the constant and incendiary incitement from the Palestinian Authority (PA) leaders and its official media.

    Dispatch 26


    The Friends of Israel Initiative strongly condemns these savage terrorist attacks and we express our sincere condolences to the families of the victims and to the French people. We stand with you now and ever. The Islamic State’s perpetrators murdered savagely and in cold blood innocent civilians who were just enjoying life in restaurants and concert halls. These attacks perfectly show the nature of the enemy we have to face. It is an enemy who does not value human life and who will not stop in the pursuit of its goals: To destroy the West and our way of life.
