ICEJ Marks Holocaust Remembrance Day with Survivors in Haifa

On Thursday night, the Christian Embassy marked International Holocaust Remembrance Day with dozens of Holocaust survivors at an event in Haifa headlined by Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen and three other Knesset members.

ICEJ Vice President & Senior Spokesman David Parsons represented our ministry in receiving an award for our work in caring for Holocaust survivors. He told the survivors in the audience that they were true heroes for overcoming the horrors and loss of the Shoah, regaining their humanity and positive outlook on life, and helping to build the state of Israel. Some 20 residents from the ICEJ’s Haifa Home for Holocaust survivors were on hand and a group of them came to the stage to perform a song in tribute to the event’s host and our partner in this work, Shimon Sabag of Yad Ezer L’Haver.

January 27th each year has been set aside by the United Nations and European Union as International Holocaust Remembrance Day, as it falls on the anniversary of the Soviet Army’s liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp in 1945. The ICEJ encourages everyone to stop to reflect on this day, to pray for Israel and the Jewish people, and to learn more about the Nazi genocide campaign against the Jews through books, documentary films and online materials.

Netanyahu seeks legacy-sealing deal with Saudis

By: David Parsons, ICEJ Vice President & Senior Spokesman

The impact of the Abraham Accords continues to reverberate throughout the Middle East, and returning Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu certainly hopes to build on their momentum, especially by sealing an historic breakthrough with Saudi Arabia. But Riyadh is signalling any deal first depends on rebuilding their frayed relations with the United States.

Two years on, the Abraham Accords are still bearing good fruit in the region. Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates continue to expand their trade and investment ties with Israel, while Morocco is now welcoming scores of Israeli tourists. Jerusalem’s relations with Egypt also continue to warm, and the Negev Forum countries recently met again in Abu Dhabi and are planning an even larger regional summit in Morocco this spring. Hopes also are growing that perhaps Indonesia and other key Muslim nations further afield may soon open ties with Israel.

However, not everyone is joining the bandwagon. Sudan may have signed the Accords, but is too fractured to contribute anything to the normalization process. And while Oman was seen as the next possible Arab state to reconcile with Israel, its new leader is leaning closer to Iran and its parliament recently voted to criminalize any interactions with “the Zionist entity”.
