Jan 21, 2015

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.

Israel Policy Forum echoes the statements of US Ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power, that the failed Palestinian bid to gain recognition for statehood by the United Nations Security Council “should serve as a wake-up call to catalyze all interested parties to take constructive, responsible steps to achieve a two-state solution, which remains the only way to bring an end to the ongoing cycle of violence and suffering.”

Israel Policy Forum (IPF) is horrified by today's terror attack in a synagogue in Jerusalem, targeting innocents in their place of worship. Leaders across the globe must forcefully condemn this despicable act of hatred and violence.

IPF condemns today’s terror attack in Jerusalem, which took the life of Jaddan Assad, a 38 year-old Border Patrol officer, who leaves behind his pregnant wife and 3 year-old son.   The repeated occurrences of automobiles being used as terror weapons against Israeli civilians and soldiers, and the growing tensions in Jerusalem, are deeply concerning.  

Aug 27, 2014

Israel Policy Forum (IPF) welcomes the announcement of a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas. We remain guarded in our optimism that the halt to the fighting will be sustained.  It is sad that Hamas refused and violated numerous prior Egyptian ceasefire attempts which closely resemble the current arrangement.  The injuries, loss of life and trauma incurred by Israelis and Palestinians after 50 days of fighting have been incredibly tragic.

For years, we tended to paper over a fundamental policy difference between Israel and the United States. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu long has talked about the need to dismantle fully Iran’s nuclear infrastructure that he describes as constituting an existential threat to Israel, while President Obama’s language consistently called for preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.
