Before Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s addresses heads of Jewish federations, Israel’s envoy to the US and the UN thanks the premier for highlighting the unfair treatment Israel receives at the UN.

“There are growing voices here in the US that threaten the safety of the Jewish community,” Ambassador Gilad Erdan says, while stressing that the Democratic Party and American people are overwhelmingly pro-Israel.

He says the “extended Squad” is either ignorant or antisemitic for opposing funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system.
