Iran Currency Crisis Sparks Protests

Angry Iranians took to the streets of Tehran to protest the collapse of their national currency, which has dropped by 40 percent in value in one week. Many blamed Iran’s President Ahmadinejad, citing his economic policies.

Also this week in Israel in the News:

• Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke with both President Obama and his Republican challenger about Iran’s nuclear program.
• At the U.N. General Assembly, a Venezuelan official called Israel and the U.S. “war mongering threats.”
• Israel says it has no objections to restarting negotiations with the Palestinians.
• In the latest outbreak of violence in the Syrian conflict, 40 died after five explosions rocked Aleppo.
• Meanwhile, Turkish artillery fired on Syrian targets after the deadly shelling from Syria of a Turkish border town.

This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, The Fellowship’s founder and CEO, on the historic opening of a Fellowship office in Seoul, South Korea.

Rabbi's Commentary
Remembering the Terror of 9/11, Confronting the Terror of Today

The attacks on 9/11 were a wake-up call to the dangers of Islamist terrorism, and the swift growth of terrorist groups such as the Islamic State should wake us up to a current threat that demands not just our vigilance, but also our unity.
