This week in Israel begin with an alleged strike by Israeli forces in Syria. The attack killed six Hezbollah operatives and an Iranian General. On Wednesday morning, a Palestinian terrorist attacked a Tel Aviv bus, stabbing 12 people. IPF strongly condemned this attack and continues to hope for a quick and full recover of the victims. Also on Wednesday, U.S. House Speaker John Boehner circumvented the Obama Administration and issued a personal invitation to Prime Minister Netanyahu to address the U.S. congress about Iranian sanctions. The visit will come only weeks before the Israeli election.

Israel Policy Forum (IPF) strongly condemns today’s terror attack on a Tel Aviv Bus during morning rush hour that left 17 Israelis injured.  This brutal attack - and the appalling and despicable response by Hamas' leaders hailing the terror act as "brave" and "heroic" - should be resoundingly condemned by the international community. Israeli and Palestinian leaders who seek peace must work to calm tensions, not inflame them.

Amid this tragedy, Israel continues to prepare for the March elections, with Labor and the Jewish Home completing their primaries this week. Avigdor Lieberman revealed his party’s new slogan yesterday and is expected to announce his party list on Monday.
