On May 26th, Israeli Sergeant Ronen Lubarsky was killed during an operation. His attacker, Islam Abu Hmeid, is the fifth of the Abu Hmeid family to be imprisoned for inciting terror. While Lubarsky’s family mourns their son’s death, the Abu Hmeid family continues to receive monthly payments from the PA. So far the family has received more than 1 million in terror payments.
In 2018, 289 rockets were shot into Israel from the Gaza Strip. At any given moment in southern Israel, you only have 15 seconds to find cover from rockets launched by Hamas. This leaves a very harsh reality for Israeli citizens and their families as they must prepare to run for cover at all times.
BDS is badgering establishments throughout Spain to boycott Israel. So far, over 100 businesses across Spain are wrongfully supporting a boycott of Israel and pushing other establishments to do the same.

The March of Return protests in Gaza are inherently violent. In the 77 days of destruction thus far, protesters have launched between 70-80 exploding kites per week, ultimately creating 412 blazes in Israel. This has caused significant amounts of damage in Israel. This is not a peaceful protest.
Israeli intelligence has thwarted over 250 terror attacks from January to June 2018 according to a new report by Shin Bet. Shin Bet Director Nadav Argaman said that the agency had succeeded in blocking many serious terror attacks including kidnappings, suicide bombings, and shootings.
Hamas has many different types of rockets in its terror arsenal. These weapons vary from short-range homemade rockets to longer-range weapons that can reach beyond Tel Aviv from Gaza. Hamas must be stopped.
There is a wave of Antisemitism washing across Europe and North America. Countries like Sweden and Ukraine are experiencing levels not seen since World War II. There have been countless incidents. These are just a few recent examples.
Anti-Semitism affects everyone. Just last week vandals desecrated an Athens cemetery destroying Jewish gravestones. This weekend the people of Athens will gather in the streets to march in solidarity with Jewish community. It is time for us to say enough is enough to all forms anti-Semitism and discrimination. Share this fact now to support the Greek community.
Protesters at Hamas’ Great March of Return have faked injuries that were then reported as legitimate in the press. Footage of one incident shows protesters carrying a man on a stretcher who appears to have sustained an injury. Once the group is out of sight of the media, the stretcher is placed on the ground. The man then stands up and walks away as if nothing ever happened.

April 27th, 2018 marks the fifth week of Hamas' Great Return March in Gaza. This week, the terror group has sent Gazans with Molotov cocktails to attack Israel and bolt cutters to breach the border fence. Here is a picture from today’s demonstration.
