NEW ENTRY - The Friedman File: APN Watch on US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman

President Trump's controversial US Ambassador to Israel has demonstrated that APN was right to oppose his confirmation and subsequently call for his firing.

Based on his actions, statements, and our off-the-record conversations with informed insiders, it is clear that David Friedman is the chief architect behind the Trump administration's thinly concealed push to kill the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The Friedman File is APN's comprehensive record documenting the deeds of the settlements enthusiast-cum-ambassador since he assumed his post.

On Tu B'Shavat (New Year of the Trees) - from APN Activist Barbara Green

Last year I wrote a Peace Parsha for Tu B'Shevat in which I asked: When did we go from being a people who plant trees to a people who cut them down?

I didn't mean ordinary every-day Jews who go about their business without thinking much about trees. Or ordinary Jewish Israelis who have a long tradition of planting and caring for trees. The Torah commands us to refrain from picking fruit from trees until they are three years old. When we go to war against another people, we are commanded to leave fruit-bearing trees intact to ensure a source of food.

No, I'm talking about Israeli Jewish settlers in the West Bank -- the occupied territories -- who have weaponized Palestinian trees. Ironically, the trees they burn and cut down are olive trees -- the very symbol of peace. But these Jews aren't making peace. They're waging an undeclared war against the Palestinians by destroying their livelihood, their labor, their identity, and their humanity. It's the purposeful destruction of their hopes, and the message is clear: "Palestinians not wanted here."

Thousands Demonstrate at Peace Now Rally on Saturday in Tel Aviv: "No to Annexation Rally"

Peace Now and its allies, with just a few days to organize, held a demonstration in Tel Aviv on Saturday, Febuary 1st to expose this annexation plan for the trap that it is, appealing to the sanity of fellow Israelis to see how those peddling this scheme are trying to pull the wool over the eyes of the public.

APN, through you, helped our Israeli Peace Now partners's  by raising funds to put on this emergency rally. 

Donations are still be accepted to APN's special fund to help cover the remaining costs. Thank you for your support!

Democracy. Equality. Two States. Peace. Israel stands on the verge of self-destruction for a fringe ideology which threatens to snuff out these values and herald a permanent apartheid reality.

Thank you for your support.
