FactsOfIsrael.com Newsletter


This week I started posting articles on FactsOfIsrael.com from the French and Brazilian media in their original language. It'll give an additional perspective to how different countries perceive the war between Israel and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Hamas and Arafat's terrorist groups.

As a reader of our newsletter, I'd like to know your opinion: will articles in languages other than English make you more or less likely to visit FactsOfIsrael.com? Please send me an email, and let me know if you have additional suggestions or remarks.

I have almost finished translating the core website to French - this includes the Maps, History, Stats, Palestine and Democracy pages. This will allow anyone speaking French to learn a bit more about Israel and the Middle East - and God knows that the French need it.

Thanks for being interested in the facts.

Be careful out there,

David Melle

Fact Number 51
The distance between the West Bank and Netanya is 9 miles (15 km) 

All of the Palestinian genocide bombers that have deliberately murdered hundreds of Israeli and American civilians in the last two years come from the West Bank. The distance between the West Bank and Netanya, a major Israeli city, is 9 miles (15 km).

Many Palestinian terrorists from the Hamas and Islamic Jihad also tried to attack from Gaza, but an electronic fence and Israel's soldiers have stopped them all.
For more details on the West Bank and Gaza, check out the FactsOfIsrael.com Maps and History pages.

Adam Weinstein, 14 

Faces of the Victims has published the story of Adam Weinstein, a 14-year-old kid who was deliberately murdered by Palestinian genocide bombers.

 Adam Weinstein, 14 
was celebrating a birthday
when a Palestinian genocide bomber killed him

Adam Weinstein was celebrating a friend's birthday in a cafe in Jerusalem. At 11:30 he was on his way with his friends to take the bus home. A few minutes before the suicide bombing, his mother and brother called him, and he told them, "I'm on my way to the bus." Five minutes later he was killed.

Adam lived in Givon Hahadasha, a community north of Jerusalem. He was the youngest of three brothers. "Adam was a computer genius", said his brother Assaf. "He was a good soul, who never cursed. He had many friends, who were always with him. He was a good and talented ninth-grade student, who liked playing basketball and playing the piano," said his older brother.

Adam Weinstein was buried in the Givat Shaul cemetery in Jerusalem. He is survived by his parents and two brothers, Assaf and Eidan, both soldiers.

May God bless his memory.

The Coordination Forum for Countering Antisemitism

The Coordination Forum for Countering Antisemitism is a state forum that monitors Antisemitic and Anti-Jewish activities throughout the world. It coordinates the struggle against this phenomenon with various government bodies and Jewish organizations around the world.

The Forum receives information on antisemitic activity from a variety of sources, checks this information and publishes it in regular reports. The Forum convenes periodically to hear updated reports and establish policy on how to counter different forms of antisemitism.

Israel, as the Jewish State gives the highest priority to the security of Jewish communities around the world and has undertaken to do everything in its power to eradicate anti-Jewish activity.

The struggle against antisemitism must unfortunately persist and requires our constant attention. This entails learning and understanding the extent of the phenomenon and recruiting all the relevant resources to fight it wherever and whenever it appear.

Members of the forum are as follows: the Israeli Education and Foreign Ministries, the Prime Minister's Office/Information Centre and Government Secretariat, the Jewish Agency, ADL, World Jewish Congress, B'nei Brith and Academic research institutes - the Stephen Roth Institute of Tel Aviv University and the Vidal Sasson Institute of the Hebrew University.
