This week began with condemnation by Israeli officials over the Swedish decision to recognize the State of Palestine. Sunday also saw the flare up of violence along the Israeli-Lebanese border. The violence increased Tuesday, with the detonation of two Hezbollah bombs along the border. On Thursday, the Palestinian unity government, headed by Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah, held its first cabinet meeting in Gaza. In the midst of this holiday season, unrest in Jerusalem continues to unfold. At IPF we want to wish everyone Chag Sukkot Sameach.
