Last month the Durham City Council voted unanimously to ban its local police force from exchange programs with their Israeli counterparts. This decision, resulting from successful disinformation by the anti-Israel organization Jewish Voice for Peace, will deprive that city's law enforcement community of valuable learning opportunities that help keep Americans safe. Repeating this mistake would only needlessly put more Americans' lives at risk.

Following recent clashes at the Gaza-Israel border, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has broken his tenuous two-year cease-fire with Israel and returned to spewing invective at the Jewish state.
