Swedish Conference for Israel Against Anti-Semitism
Yifa Segal, Director of the International Legal Forum, was invited to be the keynote speaker at the annual ‘Conference for Israel Against Anti-Semitism / Anti-Zionism’, in Stockholm. The legal challenges facing the community, primarily anti-Semitism and the funding of anti-Israel groups, were discussed.
As a result, the ILF will continue to work with local organizations and attorneys to initiate a legal network of Swedish lawyers to join the international network. The Swedish community is challenged primarily with extreme Antisemitism and Anti-Israel funding from their government directly to BDS organizations, terror affiliates and as well as to the PA, which makes working together so important and strategic.
ILF speaks to the American Association for Jewish Lawyers and Jurists (AAJLJ)
Yifa Segal, Director of the International Legal Forum, was invited to Washington to speak to the American Association for Jewish Lawyers and Jurists (AAJLJ) to discuss how we further our cooperation to fight terror, antisemitism and the de-legitmization of Israel and the Jewish people.
The discussion focused on recent Israeli legislation and policy that had been considered controversial among many in the AAJLJ, such as the "Nation State Law", the amendment to the "Entrance to Israel Law" (restricting access to BDS activists) and several High Court petitions. The meeting was very successful and meaningful.
