In the wake of the deadly attack last week on Israelis in Bulgaria, Olympic officials are raising the terrorism assessment for the games. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the 1972 Munich Olympics in which 11 Israeli athletes were killed in a terrorist attack.
Also this week in Israel in the News:
• Israel anxious over Syrian threat to use chemical weapons if attacked.
• Russia threatening to drop its support of Assad regime in Syria.
• Turkey shuts its border with Syria.
• Israel claims to have “rock solid” evidence on Bulgaria bombing.
This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features The Fellowship’s David Kuner on Israel’s fundamental right to defend itself against terrorism — past, present, and future.
