To celebrate 30th anniv. of Greece-Israel diplomatic ties, worth recalling Winston Churchill’s quote: “No two cities have counted more with mankind than Athens & Jerusalem. Their messages in religion, philosophy & art have been the main guiding lights of modern faith & culture.”

Extremely disappointed that the @CUNYLaw faculty have endorsed this BDS resolution. BDS is a hateful antisemitic movement that vilifies the world's only Jewish state. This only cuts off productive discussions and makes the path to peace more difficult. algemeiner.com/2022/05/19/cu…

We applaud the Senate for approving $40 billion in assistance to Ukraine with overwhelming bipartisan support. The U.S. continues to make clear to Putin that it is 100% behind Ukraine in its fight against Russia's invasion. #StandWithUkraine 🇺🇦🇺🇸 nytimes.com/2022/05/19/us/po…

Tunisia's Jewish history dates back over 2,500 years. Each year, Tunisians participate in the Ghriba pilgrimage to Djerba on Lag B'Omer. It is inspiring to see this ancient ritual honored in modern-day Tunisia, a reminder of the country's and the region's rich Jewish heritage.
1/2 Chargée d’Affaires, a.i. Natasha Franceschi attended the opening ceremony of the Ghriba pilgrimage in Djerba yesterday, inaugurated by Prime Minister Najla Bouden. Djerba is home to one of the oldest Jewish communities in the world dating back more than 2,500 years.

Putin’s image as a strategist has been shattered. In this thread, I identify 10 things he got wrong in his barbaric invasion of #Ukraine. #1 #Putin thought attacking Ukraine would be a cakewalk. A few days at most. As 3 months approach, he’s far closer to defeat than victory.

The 🇺🇸-🇮🇱 alliance creates enormous benefits for both nations and it is vital we keep this relationship strong. @AOC's claim that military aid to Israel undermines adequate healthcare in the U.S is, at best, a cheap publicity stunt and, at worst, something far more insidious.
On IG live, @AOC suggests cutting military aid to Israel in wake of killing of Shireen Abu Aqleh. "She was killed by Israeli forces. You know, we can't allow this stuff to be happening with our resources.. We can't even get healthcare in the U.S. — and we are funding this."

Rep. @RashidaTlaib is out to destroy America’s ally, #Israel. Her resolution seeks to deny the Jewish people's ancestral links to the land & right to self-determination. Who supports her effort? Reps. Bowman, Bush, McCollum, Newman, Ocasio-Cortez, Omar. jewishinsider.com/2022/05/ra…

“Holding the Jewish community collectively responsible for what happens in the Middle East by my definition is racist... Everything we have seen around the BDS movement is racist.” We echo British Home Secretary @PritiPatel and thank her for taking a strong stance against BDS.
The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement is racist and antisemitic, British Home Secretary Priti Patel told a gathering of Conservative Friends of Israel. Report by @tovahlazaroff #Israel | #UK jpost.com/bds-threat/article…

We commend the House for passing the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act, empowering @TheJusticeDept, @DHSgov, and @FBI with the necessary tools to better combat violent extremism. Fighting domestic terror should be a national priority. We await the Senate's approval.
We urge the House to pass the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act, empowering @TheJusticeDept, @DHSgov, and @FBI to better monitor, investigate, and prosecute cases of domestic terrorism. The U.S. needs an effective, responsive, and organized effort to address this growing threat.

.@RepThomasMassie was the lone vote against yesterday's resolution condemning antisemitism. While Democrats and Republicans united, Rep. Massie, who has also opposed bills on Holocaust education and Iron Dome funding, decided that combating rising hatred is not important.
We commend the House for passing a resolution condemning antisemitism with overwhelming bipartisan support. With leadership united, the U.S. can be a model of the strong response needed adequately combat rising anti-Jewish hate.
