Americans For A Safe Israel
We are an educational organization created to support an undivided Israel.
AFSI was founded in 1970 as an American counterpart to the Land of Israel Movement, asserting Israel’s historic, religious, and legal rights to the land re-gained in the 1967 war. AFSI has argued consistently that a strong, territorially defensible Israel is essential to U.S. and global security interests in the region, and that the “two-state solution,” would endanger the world, while bringing the dissolution of Israel.
We are a national organization with chapters throughout the country and members throughout the world. All are dedicated to the premise that a strong Israel is essential to Western interests in the Middle East, and that the Jewish communities in Judea, Samaria and the Golan are the best guarantee against strategic vulnerability, as were the Gush Katif communities.
AFSI supports a policy of “peace for peace” between the Arab states and Israel, and rejects “peace for territory.” AFSI opposes spending U.S. tax dollars, estimated to be in the billions, to fund a phantom “peace” plan.
Send a message to the detractors of Israel in the media, the Administration, and the public by joining AFSI and becoming active in your community chapter.

Full Jewish Sovereignty in Judea and Samaria
Yesterday, we proclaimed, "Enough is enough; when will real action finally be taken to eliminate the sources of terror against Jews?"
It is getting harder and harder to keep track of all the terror attacks in Israel. And those attacks are only the ones we read about. They do not include attacks that do not make the headlines, like most of an iceberg's mass under the water line that we cannot see.
Yesterday we read of the heroics of one terror victim, an Orthodox Jew from Petach Tikvah, who was stabbed in the neck by an Arab terrorist and was then able to pull the knife out of his neck and stab his attacker to death with it.
And incredibly, although perhaps not unexpected, the extremist leader of the extremist left wing organization Peace Now, Yariv Oppenheimer, condemned this Jewish victim of terror for his actions!
And of course, "Palestinian" Arabs are calling the terrorist who killed the American tourist Taylor Force yesterday, a "heroic martyr".
And following the string of attacks yesterday, Israel's envoy to the UN, Danny Danon, called on the UN to condemn the attacks. Of course, there is no chance of that happening.
And finally, as we reported yesterday, the Obama administration, while totally ignoring the deeply ingrained hatred that Arabs have for Jews, seems to be gearing up for one more attempt at a "two-state" solution, thus undermining the very security of Israel and endangering the lives of its citizens and Jews around the world.
So, what is next?
As we wrote last week, the answer is full Jewish sovereignty in Judea and Samaria.
Only by asserting sovereignty over all Jewish land, and
Only by proclaiming that Jews have a right (and obligation) to settle all of the Land of Israel...will there be a solution to the problems Israel is facing today.
Not a "two-state solution",
Not a "Palestinian" Arab state carved out of the heartland of the Jewish state, and
Not the division of Jerusalem, which has been and is the capital of one nation and one nation only, Israel.
We hear the Israel haters shrieking, "apartheid, occupation, racism," etc.
No. We are only talking about Jews asserting their G-d given and legal rights to a nation of their own. As for the minorities living in Israel, we say, ask them if they prefer to live in Israel, any Arab or Muslim nation, or potentially, a state of "Palestine". Unequivocally, the answer is, Israel. So much for the apartheid, occupation and racism charge.
As Caroline Glick and many others have written, no matter what Israel does, the world will object. She is correct. It is finally time to take that one giant leap for mankind: full Jewish sovereignty in all of Israel.
