ILF Director discusses the UN Security Council resolution condemning “Israeli settlements”: what are the legal ramifications, how will it affect Obama’s legacy and the policy of the incoming American president, and how does it influence the political discourse?
ILF Director Yifa Segal published an op-ed in the US political publication The Hill, which analyzed the politicization of the organization and some of the necessary measures that need to be taken in order for it to operate in the manner for which it was originally intended.
The ILF and StandWithUS, along with Israel’s Ambassador to UNESCO, met with UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova to present a petition initiated by the two organizations against UNESCO’s recent resolutions denying Jewish ties to Jerusalem, and draft resolution to be voted by the agency’s World Heritage Committee on October 26, 2016.

ILF investigation into the content of the Palestinian Authority text books, used in the vast majority of East Jerusalem schools, revealed that despite the fact that these books need to be approved by the Israeli Education Ministry, the textbooks contained incitement to violence, glorification of martyrdom and jihad, and denial of Israel’s right to exist in any borders.
The ILF contacted the Ministry of Education, who said that they are investigating the matter.
The ILF was honored to host Raheel Raza, a Muslim Pakistani, currently from Canada, for an evening focused on Radical Islam, democratic values, and human right.
