Witness says Ari Fuld’s killer deliberately targeted an American
Falafel shop worker tells Times of Israel that terrorist twice asked her and others in restaurant if they spoke English and stood behind Fuld for a full minute before stabbing him

Ari Fuld, who was stabbed to death by a Palestinian terrorist outside a West Bank shopping mall on September 16, 2018. (Facebook)
A falafel shop worker who was saved by a mortally wounded Ari Fuld said Friday that the terrorist deliberately targeted the American-Israeli and had repeatedly sought out someone “who spoke English” before launching his stabbing spree.
Security camera footage from the Gush Etzion Junction shopping mall on Sunday shows Fuld, fatally wounded and with blood pouring down his back, chasing and shooting his attacker 17-year-old Khalil Jabarin.
Jabarin was running after his next target, Hila Peretz, a woman who worked in a local falafel store, when Fuld and another Israeli civilian opened fire, preventing the continuation of the attack and moderately injuring the terrorist.

Peretz, who served Jabarin a falafel shortly before the attack, told The Times of Israel on Friday that Jabarin had wanted to target an American. “After he came inside and ordered his falafel, he asked me two separate times if I spoke English,” recalled Peretz.
“I told him ‘no,’ and asked him what it was that he wanted.”
Jabarin did not answer, but the falafel shop worker was convinced that the questions were part of the 17-year-old’s effort to determine his first target.

“It was not as if he didn’t speak Hebrew and had been asking to speak English so he could make his order. We carried out our conversation in Hebrew,” she explained.
“There were other people in the area that he could have targeted first, but he chose Ari,” she said.  “But them he didn’t target, he must have wanted an American.”
Fuld, a 43-year-old father of four, was a native of Queens, New York, before emigrating to Israel.
Peretz highlighted how the security camera footage shows Jabarin pausing and waiting behind Fuld for nearly a minute as Fuld greeted several passersby.
As for why Jabarin wanted an American, Peretz acknowledged that she could not know for sure. “I’m not sure what goes on in those Arab villages. They’re probably all riled up about Trump there or something,” she said.
The Trump administration has been denounced by the Palestinian leadership for recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and moving its embassy there. Since the Palestinian Authority has subsequently boycotted the US government, the American government has taken a number of steps, including cutting aid to the PA, the UN agency for Palestinian refugees and Palestinian hospitals in East Jerusalem.
The White House has indicated those funds will remain withheld until the Palestinians re-engage with the administration to broker a comprehensive Israeli-Palestinian peace deal.
On Thursday, the US justified the hospital funding cuts, including by pointing to the Palestinian Authority’s use of funds to pay terrorists, such as the PA’s declared plans to pay the family of Fuld’s killer.

State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said there was no reason for the US to fund the hospitals when it merely allowed the PA to free up money to support terrorists and their families.
The PA, she went on to say, has “failed to prioritize paying its debts and has instead put money into funding these payments to the families of terrorists.”
Recalling the moment of the attack itself, Peretz earlier in the week said she saw Jabarin “pull out this big knife that was glimmering in the sun, and plunged it into [Ari].”
Next, Peretz said Jabarin began to run toward her with the knife drawn. She ran for her life, shouting “terrorist,” she said.
“The terrorist was right behind me,” she told Israel’s Channel 10 TV news. “I started running down the stairs but he jumped to try to get in front of me. The man that was killed really saved my life.”
She added of Fuld: “He’s not just a hero. He gave his life for me.”
Ari’s way
In an effort to “continue in Ari’s way,” the Fuld family returned Friday morning to the Gush Etzion Junction where the 45-year-old father of four was killed.
After paying a visit to Fuld’s grave in the West Bank settlement of Efrat, family, friends and supporters continued to the shopping center. There, they ate a breakfast together at one of the restaurants in the complex.
“We have grown and will continue to grow as a result of what has happened, and we will choose life,” Fuld’s father Yonah said in a video statement from the scene.
“We have learned great spiritual strengths from Ari’s life and death, and despite our private pain, we are filled with pride at Ari’s heroism and the way he chose to end his life.”

Fuld’s daughter Tamar said her family took great “pride” in returning to the place where Ari was killed.
“Dad would have wanted to show the world that this pride (of his) continues and is now part of us,” she said.
Jabarin, who is being treated in a Jerusalem hospital, was said Monday to be lightly injured by the gunfire from Fuld and the second Israeli civilian.
Fuld, a resident of nearby Efrat, was rushed to Shaare Zedek Medical Center, but was declared dead shortly after.

Hezbollah Leader Threatens Israel with ‘Advanced and Accurate Missiles’
https://unitedwithisrael.org/hezbollah-leader-threatens-israel-with-advanced-and-accurate-missiles/?
Nasrallah claimed that Israel’s attempts to prevent Hezbollah from “possessing advanced and accurate missiles have been foiled.”

By: United with Israel Staff

Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah threatened Israel with war, claiming that “the entire balance of power” between the Lebanon-based terror group and Israel “has changed.”

Speaking on the occasion of the Muslim Ashura holiday on Thursday, Nasrallah addressed Israel directly and asserted that all its attempts to prevent Hezbollah from “possessing advanced and accurate missiles have been foiled,” stressing that the issue “is all over” and that the Israelis themselves “can’t imagine their fate if these missiles are used in any future war.”

Iran over the past years has been trying to arm Hezbollah, its proxy terror organization, with advanced weapons through Syria, and Israel in turn has been trying to prevent Hezbollah’s armament, mostly through airstrikes.

A Fox News report earlier this month revealed that Iran is utilizing civilian airlines to transport weapons to the Hezbollah terror organization in Lebanon.

Western intelligence sources have uncovered “unexpected routes” taken by Iran in an apparent attempt to avoid detection of its arms-smuggling into Lebanon, the report said.

“The Iranians are trying to come up with new ways and routes to smuggle weapons from Iran to its allies in the Middle East, testing and defying the West’s abilities to track them down,” the source told Fox News.

Utilizing Civilian Airlines
In November 2016, Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations (UN) Danny Danon warned the Security Council that Iran was utilizing civilian airlines to transport weapons to Hezbollah.
In a letter to the Council, Danon said it was the IRGC that was responsible for the smuggling, and he outlined how they were doing it.

“Iran is using airlines such as ‘Mahan Air’ to supply Hezbollah with the capacity to enhance its missile arsenal. The arms and related materials are packed in suitcases by the Quds Force in Iran and transferred directly to Hezbollah operatives,” he wrote.

Danon charged that Iran’s actions are “in blatant violation of numerous Security Council resolutions,” including resolutions 2231 and 1701.
Hezbollah was in possession of roughly 7,000 rockets in 2006, and the Lebanese terror group now has more than 120,000 missiles aimed at Israeli cities, hidden behind human shields in the towns under their control.

Addressing attendees of the Ashura march in Beirut’s Hezbollah-controlled Dahiyeh suburb, Nasrallah said that the Israelis are worried because “their scheme in the region has been foiled.”
He also declared that Hezbollah stands by the Islamic Republic of Iran “in face of all kinds of economic and political pressure,” apparently referring to the US’ renewed sanctions on the country, which have already hurt Hezbollah as well.

Netanyahu: ‘Heroic’ Terror Victim Ari Fuld ‘Prevented a Greater Tragedy’
Palestinian terror
“With his last strength, Ari fought heroically against the terrorist and prevented a greater tragedy,” Netanyahu stated. 
https://unitedwithisrael.org/netanyahu-heroic-terror-victim-ari-fuld-prevented-a-greater-tragedy/?By: United with Israel Staff

Leaders in Israel and around the world as well as ordinary citizens of diverse backgrounds and political leanings expressed shock and sorrow over the murder of Ari Fuld, who was stabbed to death by a Palestinian terrorist at the Gush Etzion shopping mall on Sunday.

Fuld and another civilian shot and wounded the terrorist before he collapsed. Through their courageous actions, they prevented a much larger attack.

“In the name of every citizen of Israel, I send my condolences to the family of Ari Fuld, who was murdered today in a terrorist attack in Gush Etzion,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated on social media.

“With his last strength, Ari fought heroically against the terrorist and prevented a greater tragedy. Ari was a wonderful father to four children. He was an advocate for Israel who fought to spread the truth about Israel. May his memory be a blessing,” he added.

Jason D. Greenblatt, assistant to President Donald Trump and Special Representative for International Negotiations tweeted that “words cannot express our feeling of loss as an American-Israeli, Ari Fuld, was stabbed to death by a Palestinian terrorist.”

“In Ari’s last breaths, he heroically immobilized the terrorist, saving many other lives. Our thoughts and prayers are with Ari’s family & his loved ones,” he added.

US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, who attended Fuld’s late-night funeral, tweeted that “America grieves as one of its citizens was brutally murdered by a Palestinian terrorist.”

“Ari Fuld was a passionate defender of Israel & an American patriot. He represented the best of both countries & will be deeply missed. May his family be comforted & his memory be blessed,” Friedman stated.

Emanuele Giaufret, European Union Ambassador to Israel, conveyed his “condolences to the family of the Israeli civilian victim of a stabbing attack.”

“There can be no justification for violence and terror,” he underscored.

Latest Victim of Palestinian Violence and Incitement
Emmanuel Nahshon, Israel’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman said that Fuld “is the latest victim of Palestinian violence and incitement to terror. This is an unacceptable tragedy and we expect world wide condemnation of this horrific act.”

The World Jewish Congress condemned the attack “in the strongest terms possible.”

“The World Jewish Congress unequivocally condemns the brutal and heinous act of terror that took place today in Gush Etzion,” WJC CEO and Executive Vice President Robert Singer said. “We send our deepest condolences to the family of the victim, Ari Fuld, a father of four and defender of Israel, whose life was cut short in violence and hatred, as he heroically confronted his attacker, saving the lives of other innocent bystanders.”

“It is incumbent upon the international community to speak out loudly against this aggression,” Singer added. “We demand that the Palestinian Authority take immediate and harsh measures to curb the incitement that led to this attack, bring the perpetrator to justice, and make it clear that terrorism cannot and will not be tolerated.”

WJC-Israel Chairman, Gad Ariely, who knew Fuld personally, said “the whole House of Israel and decent people everywhere are deeply saddened by the killing of a pillar of the community. This outrage committed during the holiest period of the Jewish calendar will not weaken our resolve to stand strong in the face of terror. May the memory of Ari’s courage and devotion be a blessing that will always inspire us.”

Ideological opponenets also expressed sorrow on the murder of Fuld.

The left-wing J Street issued a statement saying it was “horrified by this attack and deeply saddened by the murder of Ari Fuld, an American-Israeli activist and father of four. There can never be any excuse for this kind of violence. Our thoughts and condolences are with his family and community.”

‘Ideological Chasm Left to the Screen’
Yariv Oppenheimer, the director of Peace Now who was often Fuld’s opponent on ILTV’s Frenemies debates, tweeted that he was “in total shock, sad and upset, also on a personal level.”

“A true ideologue, a believer in his way. I feel so sad for him and his family,” Oppenheimer added.

Uri Zaki, founder of The Front for the Protection of Democracy, who also participated in heated political debates with Fuld on Frenemies, said he was “overwhelmed and pained by the abominable murder of my friend Ari Fuld.”

“There was an ideological chasm between us, but we left it to the screen. My sincere condolences to his family,” he stated.

A Russian military Il-20 aircraft with 14 service members on board went off the radar during an attack by four Israeli jets on Syria’s Latakia province, the Russian Defense Ministry said.
Air traffic controllers at Khmeimim Airbase “lost contact” with the aircraft on Monday evening, during an attack by Israeli F-16 fighters on Latakia, said the MoD. The plane was 35km off the coast of Syria when it vanished.

A total of 14 people were on board the plane at the time of the disappearance. A search and rescue mission is underway.

The Ilyushin 20 (IL-20) surveillance turboprop plane is an Electronic Intelligence (ELINT) platform, equipped with a wide range of antennas, infrared and optical sensors. The aircraft's SLAR (Side-Looking Airborne Radar) and the plane's satellite link allows the Russian military to monitor Syrian skies in real time.
An hour-long attack on Latakia began around 10pm local time, and targeted a power station as well as two facilities belonging to the Syrian military. Syrian officials said the attack was “foreign” and came “from the sea,” but could not initially confirm rumors that Israel was behind it. Seven people were injured in the attack, according to Syrian officials.
While the Russian military said it recorded four F-16 Israeli jets over Syria at the time of the attack on Latakia, the IDF has refused to comment on the report.

©️ Sergey GuneevPutin & Erdogan agree Idlib buffer zone to avert new Syria crisis
Despite the fact that Israel rarely acknowledges striking specific targets inside Syria, earlier this month the IDF admitted hitting at least 202 “Iranian targets” in the country. Overall, Israel has launched 792 bombs and missiles at Syria since 2017, arguing that the strikes were necessary to prevent Iran from setting up bases in the country in order to stage attacks against the Jewish state.

As Israel continues to claim the right to intrude in Syria, despite repeated condemnations from Damascus, France had said that it will join the US-led campaign to strike Syria again if there are reports of chemical weapons use.

Over the last few weeks, Moscow has been beating drums about a false-flag chemical attack that is being prepared by the notorious White Helmets and jihadists in Idlib province in order to frame government forces. Such a provocation, the Russian military argues, will be used to trigger a US-led attack against Damascus.

The attack on Latakia came just hours after Russia and Turkey negotiated a partial demilitarization of Idlib province, which is the last remaining stronghold of anti-government militants, including the Al-Qaeda affiliate Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (also known as the Jabhat Al-Nusra).

WATCH: Ari Fuld’s Murderer Was Raised on Palestinian Authority Values
Sep 17, 2018
https://unitedwithisrael.org/watch-ari-fulds-murderer-was-raised-on-palestinian-authority-values/?
In 2004, after watching a PA ‘educational program’ for preschoolers, I wondered how a child watching these shows would turn out as an adult. I got my answer.
By: Linda Olmert
The 16-year-old scum that slaughtered Ari Fuld with a knife in the back on Sunday would have been two years old in 2004, and probably, like most preschoolers around the world, he was watching children’s TV programming.
As a resident of the Palestinian Authority (PA), he likely watched the official PA channel.

In 2004 I was working with Palestinian Media Watch, a watchdog organization that does groundbreaking work monitoring the official Palestinian media, exposing repeatedly the fact that the PA sends totally different messages in Arabic (which most in the West do not understand) to what it sends out in English.

I have never forgotten this film clip (below), broadcast on the official PA TV’s children’s channel. Clearly geared to preschoolers, the show’s character was a cute, fluffy yellow puppet named Tarabishu, the Talking Chick.

The entire clip was obviously scripted. The historical context was that Palestinian snipers were shooting into Israel, using trees for cover, so the IDF removed the trees.

This film includes no education for conflict resolution, such as trying to talk things out if another child does something you do not like or speaking to your mother who would then have a discussion with the other child’s mother. None at all.

Other universal goals of children’s programming, such as encouraging language skills and increasing vocabularly, are completely different in this clip from what is considered acceptable. In this “educational program for Palestinian children,” the preschoolers learn that calling people to demonstrate is acceptable, which it is, and then massacring them (“massacre” – a lovely new word?), which is not acceptable.

I clearly remember wondering back in 2004, after watching this clip again and again and again, what a two- or three-year-old growing up with this type of “entertainment” would be like as an adult. On Sunday, I got my answer.
Canadian-born Linda Olmert made Aliya and has lived in Israel for 43 years. She creates Jewish Identity programing and speaks on the subjects of Zionism, Jewish Identity and the Holocaust. Currently, she is also a ‘realtor with a difference’ in Raanana.

One dramatic moment led to five years of IDF humanitarian missions for Syrians.  

For over five years, the IDF provided medical services to over 7,000 injured Syrians and humanitarian aid to thousands more.

Israel helped because it’s the right thing to do. The unique mission was called Operation Good Neighbor.

Since its inception, the IDF provided Syrians in need with 22 generators, 40 vehicles, 281,798 gallons of fuel, 646 temporary housing units, over 1,740 tons of food, 48,933 boxes of baby formula, 8,173 packages of diapers, 350 tons of clothing, and 14,000 hygienic products.

Furthermore, the IDF supplied 2,124 containers of medicine and 25,726 boxes of medical supplies, which helped the 685 Syrian children who received medical care.
This is the story of how it came into being.

Palestinians: US Decision to Shutter PLO Office ‘Reckless’; Netanyahu Hails Move
“Such a reckless act confirms that the administration is blindly executing Israel’s ‘wish list,’ which starts with shutting down Palestinian diplomatic representation in the US,” Zomlot charged.
https://unitedwithisrael.org/palestinians-us-decision-to-shutter-plo-office-reckless-netanyahu-hails-move/?
By: United with Israel Staff

The Palestinians reacted with rage to the US decision to shut down the Palestine Liberation Organization’s (PLO) mission in Washington, with the head of the PLO General Delegation to the US Husam Zomlot describing the move as “reckless.”

“We condemn in the strongest terms the US administration’s decision to close the Palestinian mission to the US. However, we are not surprised,” he said in a statement Monday, according to the official Palestinian WAFA news agency.

“Such a reckless act confirms that the administration is blindly executing Israel’s ‘wish list,’ which starts with shutting down Palestinian diplomatic representation in the US,” he charged.

The Trump administration ordered the closure of the Palestinian diplomatic mission in Washington on Monday, citing the refusal of Palestinians to enter into talks with Israel and their rejection of the as-yet-unveiled US peace plan as the reason for the dramatic move.

Already last year, the administration told the Palestinians that its mission’s closure was a possibility unless they agreed to sit to down with the Israelis.

Instead of heeding the warning to resume talks, “the PLO leadership has condemned a US peace plan they have not yet seen and refused to engage with the US government with respect to peace efforts and otherwise,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said in a statement. “As such, and reflecting congressional concerns, the administration has decided that the PLO office in Washington will close at this point.”

Palestinians Refuse Peace Talks
US National Security Adviser John Bolton said that “the Trump administration will not keep the office open when the Palestinians refuse to take steps to start direct and meaningful negotiations with Israel. The United States supports a direct and robust peace process.”

Zomlot retorted by saying that the Palestinians “stand firm in our decision not to cooperate in this ongoing campaign to liquidate our rights and cause. Our rights are not for sale, and we will block any attempts at bullying and blackmailing us to forgo our legitimate and internationally endorsed rights.”

Those “who have pushed for such an act are taking a direct aim not only against the Palestinian people and the historic US-Palestinian relationship, but also against prospects for peace in the Middle East and the integrity of the international political and legal system,” he added.

“While today is a dark day for peace in the Middle East, for multilateralism, and the integrity of the international political and legal system, we will continue our struggle to pursue all possible legal and political means to achieve peace, independence and our internationally enshrined rights,” Zomlot concluded.

Netanyahu: ‘US Made the Correct Decision’
Israel welcomed the US move. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated Tuesday that “the US made the correct decision regarding the PLO mission in Washington.”

“Israel supports American actions that are designed to make it clear to the Palestinians that refusing to negotiate and attempts to attack Israel in international forums will not advance peace,” he stated.

Jeremy Corbyn – Anti-Semite
Jeremy Corbyn is the British anti-semite that keeps on giving. With each day more and more troublesome outbursts, events and meetings are exposed.  We now can clearly see his true antisemitic colors. One of the latest antisemitic comments that came to the fore was one he made a few years ago.  Corbyn said that “British Zionists don’t get British irony.”  What Corbyn is essentially implying is that regardless if a British Jew was born in Britain, or lived in Britain for centuries, so long as they are Zionists, they are not really British.  Rather, they are aliens to Britain. This is an extremely severe comment to say about fellow British citizens.  This is especially bothersome due to the fact that tens of thousands of Jewish men served in the British Army and Navy in World War I and II.

Theresa May Responds in Parliament
British Prime Minister Theresa May rightly calls out Labour leader Corbyn for uttering such an antisemitic comment on the Parliament floor.

It seems like this issue won’t disappear. This antisemitism problem in the Labour party seems to be growing, not going away. The biggest problem with Jeremy Corbyn’s actions as the Labour party leader is that he is mainstreaming antisemitism.  As Maajid Nawaz has said, the Labour party today is now institutionally racist.

This is PM Theresa May speaking about the issue last month

Hamas Leader Threatens Israel With 'Six Months' of Rockets on Tel Aviv

Yahya Sinwar says Israel and Hamas can make progress on prisoner swap even without reaching an agreement on long-term cease-fire

The leader of Hamas in the Gaza Strip, Yahya Sinwar, said Wednesday that talks were underway on reaching a cease-fire deal with Israel, while issuing a threat that "all of the missiles that the Palestinian resistance fired [at Israel] during the 51 days of the last war [in 2014] it can fire in five minutes."

Hamas, he warned, had sent a message to Israel through intermediaries that it is capable of "causing six months of rising and falling air raid sirens" in the Tel Aviv area. "We don't want a military confrontation, but we are not afraid of one."

About the negotiations with Israel via Egyptian and UN mediation, Sinwar said it was possible to make progress in talks on the return of two Israeli civilians being held in Gaza and the remains of two Israeli soldiers killed in combat there in 2014, in exchange for Palestinian prisoners. As reported by the Ma'an Palestinian news agency, Sinwar said the issue was not linked to contacts with Israel on a long-term cease-fire.

Speaking to reporters, Sinwar said such a cease-fire agreement could be reached with Israel even in the absence of reconciliation between the West Bank-based Palestinian Authority and Hamas, which controls the Strip. He said that Egypt has expressed a willingness to pursue such a deal.

As for reconciliation between Hamas and Fatah, Sinwar said Fatah had responded on Wednesday to an Egyptian proposal and that the response was "worse than their initial proposal." Commenting on the prospect that the Palestinian Authority might impose sanctions on Gaza if there is no progress on Palestinian reconciliation, Sinwar said: "That would be a break with the rules of the game and we would respond accordingly."

Late on Wednesday, the White House took the Palestinian Authority to task for its refusal to be involved in efforts to reach an agreement on restoring calm to Gaza. The statement and its timing - shortly after Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sissi had spoken to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas about Gaza - are indications that the Trump administration and Egypt are attempting to ratchet up the pressure on Abbas to support an agreement and to have the Palestinian Authority gradually reassume responsibility for the Strip.

Hamas forcibly took control of Gaza from the Palestinian Authority in 2007 after Fatah lost parliamentary elections three year before.

In the statement, Trump's special Middle East envoy, Jason Greenblatt, said: "The Palestinian Authority cannot criticize from the sidelines. The Palestinian Authority should be part of the solution for the Palestinians of Gaza and Palestinians as a whole. If not, others will fill that void." He added that "it's time for the Palestinian Authority to lead the Palestinian people – all Palestinians – to a better future."

Up to now, Abbas has voiced skepticism over talks under Egyptian mediation on Gaza. One of the reasons for Abbas' approach is concern that the talks would strengthen Hamas at the Palestinian Authority's expense.

On Wednesday, remarks about Gaza made by the U.S. ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, were leaked to the press. In a telephone briefing to the American Jewish Congress, Friedman said an agreement on Gaza without the Palestinian would be a "tremendous reward" for Hamas. Despite the Palestinian Authority's many shortcomings, the Trump administration prefers to work with the Palestinian Authority rather than Hamas, Friedman added.

Hamas is desperate for a deal with Israel. Here’s proof
Trump's hardball policy on the Palestinians will blow up in Israel's face
Egypt, U.S. pressure Abbas to assume responsibility for Gaza
U.S. Ambassador Friedman: Rebuilding Gaza without Abbas is 'tremendous prize' for Hamas
The Israeli government is once again weighing the possibility of a new ceasefire with Hamas - and already we hear the criticisms.  Habayit Hayehudi leader and government minister Naftali Bennett attacks any negotiation with Hamas as "surrender." Meanwhile, others fear that these latest talks, which cut out President Abbas, will weaken the one Palestinian party that Israel should be negotiating with.

Neither of these arguments are true. There is little new about the current ceasefire negotiations. 

It is part of a nasty cycle that all of the parties have been stuck in since Hamas’s violent takeover of the Gaza Strip in 2007. It has led to three conflicts, each of which was preceded by the same pattern of behavior; ended with a similar temporary agreement brokered; and ultimately reignited because the agreements never stuck. 

Here is how the cycle plays out.

Step 1: Hamas insists on arming itself and using violence against civilians as a tool to achieve its objectives and refuses to recognize Israel. Israel responds by squeezing Gaza economically to pressure Hamas politically, deter it militarily, and limit its capabilities. This is where Israel and Hamas have been since Operation Protective Edge ended in 2014, but also where they were in the periods before the 2012 and 2008 conflicts

Step 2: Eventually pressure builds inside Gaza and Hamas escalates its use of violence both to generate domestic political support and to try to get Israel to take steps to ease the economic situation. The primary tool for Hamas is rocket fire, though over time it has also evolved to include tunnel attacks and most recently fire kites.  


In this latest round, we saw this period start in earnest in March this year with the March of Return protests that were initially spurred on by civil society groups in Gaza, but ultimately co-opted by Hamas. In 2014, it was the collapse of U.S. sponsored peace talks, the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teenagers by Hamas, and the murder of an Arab-Israeli teen by Jewish extremists in response that ultimately set conditions for conflict.

Step 3: Israel responds to this Hamas escalation, with its own escalation including military strikes inside of Gaza and punitive economic measure that further choke the strip in an effort to get Hamas to change its behavior and stop the attacks. We saw this throughout this spring and summer with Israeli airstrikes and temporary full closures of the crossings into Gaza.

Step 4: Violence and political pressure become too much and the tensions explode into a major conflict that does severe damage to all sides – though the highest death toll is always experienced by the civilian population in Gaza. Thankfully, we have not hit that point yet - and the hope is that all the parties having learned from the mistakes of the past can skip this terrible step and move directly on to negotiating a new ceasefire.

Step 5: Egypt steps in and brokers a barebones ceasefire as it did in 2009, 2012, and 2014 that involves the cessation of violence on all sides and some minor steps by Israel to ease the blockade. The agreement always includes subsequent steps to be taken in the future to create a more sustainable long-term situation. But those are not taken seriously and with the immediate threat of war receding, are not followed up on by any of the parties. 


After a deal was negotiated in Cairo to end the 2014 war, for example, the UN, working with all sides was able to institute the Gaza Reconstruction Mechanism to increase the flow of goods into Gaza while meeting Israeli security requirements. Eventually, a series of small measures such as loosening certain export restrictions into Israeli markets for goods produced in Gaza were also implemented. But none of these changed the fundamental economic and humanitarian situation on the ground.  

Meanwhile, the subsequent follow on talks that were supposed to take place in Cairo and address tougher issues beyond "quiet for quiet" and short-term economic measures, never materialized. The likely scenario today is the same: An agreement that avoids war but puts off tougher questions that likely will never be addressed.  

Step 6: The international community convenes a major donor conference where a lot of money is pledged for reconstructing Gaza. But much of the funds never materialize because no one wants to invest in projects that will inevitably be destroyed in the next conflict. And with the war over international attention moves elsewhere.

In 2009, the Gaza donor conference in Sharm al-Sheikh raised $4.5 billion. In 2014, the Cairo conference resulted in commitments of $5.3 billion. Much of that money never materialized or trickled in very slowly. And even when it did, restrictions on what could be imported into Gaza and Hamas’s use of funds and materials to strengthen its own situation and invest in a new conflict have made rebuilding painfully slow.  

Step 7: Everyone goes back to business as usual. The blockade continues. Israel invests in countermeasures to respond to the latest threat from Hamas. It now has Iron Dome and counter-tunneling technology. Next, it will be building technology that can create wind currents into Gaza that make it impossible to fly kites into Israel.

Hamas develops new techniques to prepare for the next war. We do not know what will come after the kites, but certainly Hamas will find something new to terrorize Israelis.  

Eventually as things do not get better in Gaza and pressure builds the cycle of violence begins again.  

What does this cycle tell us about what the parties should do next?  First, barring any better options, for the moment Israel is right to pursue a new ceasefire and Egypt, the UN, the United States, and other Arab states should all support this approach. At least it avoids another deadly war.  

Second, the Trump administration should stop its systematic effort of defunding aid to the Palestinians both through UNRWA and USAID, as this will only further destabilize an already delicate situation.

But the most important point is that eventually there will be a reckoning.  

With every crisis, the humanitarian situation in Gaza worsens. There will come a moment when basic order collapses altogether, or Israel is forced to invade and retake Gaza.  

The only way to avoid this terrible outcome in the long-term is a sustainable political arrangement that should include both a long-term ceasefire between Israel and Hamas that includes major economic opening of Gaza combined with a Palestinian reconciliation deal between Fatah and Hamas that slowly brings the Palestinian Authority back into Gaza.  

Ultimately, the biggest winners of a new ceasefire will be the civilians in Gaza and southern Israel who will avoid the immediate misery of more violence. But unless everyone can move beyond the cycle of the past ten years, they will also be the biggest losers - as inevitably, over time, this agreement too will break down.

On Eve of Jewish New Year, Israel’s Population Approaches 9 Million
https://unitedwithisrael.org/on-eve-of-jewish-new-year-israels-population-approaches-9-million/?utm_source=pushengage&utm_medium=pushnotification&utm_campaign=pushengage
Israel’s population has grown by 162,000 since the last Jewish New Year – a two percent growth, similar to previous years.

By: United with Israel Staff

Some 175,000 babies were born in Israel over the course of the year, and the Jewish State can boast the highest fertility rate in the OECD, an international organization of developed nations, according to a survey by Israel’s Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) released on Tuesday.

Israel’s population has grown by 162,000 since the last Jewish New Year, a 1.9 percent growth, which was similar to previous years; 43,000 people have died.

Israel now has a total of 8,907,000 citizens, with a vast majority (89 percent) defining their personal mood as ‘good’ or ‘very good’ and a similar percentage expecting that the coming Jewish year of 5779 will be at least as good as the previous year.

The Jewish population stands at 6,625,000 – 75 percent of the total population. Israel’s Arab citizens constitute 20.9 percent of the population, numbering approximately 1,864,000. Non-Arab Christians and other religious groups make up 4.7 percent of the population.

Some 25,000 Jews made Aliyah (immigrated to Israel) over the past year.

Approximately 3.5 million made Aliyah since 1948, composing 42 percent of the total population.

According to CBS projections, Israel’s population will pass the 10 million mark in 2024, and the 15 million mark around 2048, Israel’s 100th birthday. The Jewish state’s population will reach 20 million in 2065.

In 2018, over 70 years after the Holocaust, the world’s largest Jewish population lives in Israel. This figure represents 43 percent of world Jewry.

Israel’s population is young in comparison with other Western countries. Children up to the age of 14 constitute 28 percent of the population.

These numbers were released by CBS via its traditional statistics report on the citizens of Israel in honor of Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year, which will be celebrated on Monday and Tuesday

This year, 52,809 couples were married; 14,819 divorced.

Israel is proud of its robust education system, which constitutes of 63 institutions of higher education with 313,000 students.

ISRAEL UNLEASHED: Israel Erects MASSIVE WALL Along Northern Border to Combat Terror
posted by Hannity Staff - 2 hours ago
Israeli officials took their fight with Hezbollah and other terror networks to the next-level this week, with officials in Jerusalem confirming they were nearing completion of a massive wall along their northern border with Lebanon.

According to Fox News, “Israel is building a massive wall along its northern border, saying the barrier is needed to protect civilians from Hezbollah attacks, but the project has raised tensions with Lebanon, which fears the fence will encroach on its territory.”

“This wall, if it is built, will be considered an aggression against Lebanon,” said an official with the Lebanese government. “The Higher Defense Council has given instructions to confront this aggression to prevent Israel from building this so-called wall barrier on Lebanese territory.”

“Even for the past year before we started this construction, we’ve coordinated this activity with UNIFIL, and through UNIFIL with the Lebanese Armed Forces. We’ve alerted them of our intention to do so, to construct this defensive mechanism,” said a Major from the IDF.

In a Rosh Hashana toast, Washington’s ambassador to Israel extolled the US-Israel relationship, focusing on the Trump administration’s change in policy regarding Iran and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The billions of dollars in US aid to the Palestinians over the years were “bringing the region no closer to peace and stability, not even by a millimeter,” Ambassador David Friedman stated.

U.S. Contradicts Russian Claim Rebels in Syria's Idlib Have Chemical Weapons Capability
https://www.haaretz.com/us-news/u-s-refutes-russian-claim-rebels-in-idlib-have-chemical-weapons-1.6452081?
In the past few days, Russian officials, cited by Russian media, have said there was a plan by 'militants' to stage a false chemical weapons attack in Idlib province to frame Assad

'Israel strikes Iranian, Assad regime targets' in Syria
Russia claims military action in Syria is 'precisely targeted' as Turkey works to avoid Idlib assault

 
There was "zero intelligence" of chemical weapons capabilities possessed by groups opposing Syrian President Bashar Assad in the province of Idlib, U.S. Defence Secretary Jim Mattis said, adding that the facts did not back Russian assertions.

Syrian government forces plan a phased offensive in Idlib and surrounding areas held by rebels opposed to Assad, who has been backed by both Russian and Iranian forces in the country’s civil war.

Russian and Syrian jets hammered the rebel stronghold on Tuesday, days before the leaders of Russia, Iran and Turkey meet to discuss the expected Syrian government offensive that could spark a humanitarian disaster.


In the past few days, Russian officials, cited by Russian media, have said there was a plan by "militants" to stage a false chemical weapons attack in Idlib province to frame Assad.

"We have zero intelligence that shows the opposition has any chemical capability," Mattis told reporters traveling with him to the Indian capital of New Delhi for a high-level dialogue on Thursday between the south Asian nation and the United States.

Russia's Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov said he had told U.S. officials that Moscow was concerned over signs the United States was preparing new strikes onSyria and warned against "groundless and illegal aggression against Syria."

"We have made very clear that by putting out innuendo that somehow any chemical weapon use coming up in the future could be ascribed to the opposition, well, we want to see the data," Mattis said. "We cannot see anything that indicates the opposition has that capability."

He said instead there was a history of Assad's government using such weapons.

U.S. President Donald Trump has twice ordered U.S.-led strikes against targets in Syria in response to what Washington called the Assad government's use of chemical weapons against civilians.

On Tuesday the White House said that if Assad used chemical weapons "the United States and its allies would respond swiftly and appropriately."
Asked if he saw indications of the Syrian government preparing to use chemical weapons in Idlib, Mattis said, " I think the best answer to that is, we are very alert."

Sputnik, a Russian state-owned news outlet, said recently the White Helmets rescue service had delivered a large shipment of toxic substances to "local armed militant groups."

The Pentagon said the Russian government was using a "concentrated disinformation campaign" to discredit the United States and its allies.
"That Russia is seeking to plant false lies about chemical weapons use suggests that Moscow is seeking to deflect from its own culpability when these heinous weapons are used," Commander Sean Robertson, a Pentagon spokesman, said in a statement.

Israeli Farmers Sue Hamas at The Hague for Arson Terrorism
https://unitedwithisrael.org/israeli-farmers-sue-hamas-at-the-hague-for-arson-terrorism/?
Israeli farmers filed a war crimes complaint with the International Criminal Court against Hamas leaders for the terror group’s devastating arson kite campaign.
By: United with Israel Staff
A group of Israeli farmers from the areas surrounding the Gaza Strip on Monday submitted an official war crimes complaint with the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague against the Hamas terror organization for war crimes it allegedly committed during its months-long airborne arson terrorism campaign.

Israeli farmers from the area surrounding the Gaza Strip have been subjected to a barrage of hundreds of burning kites sent from Gaza with the aim of setting fire to their fields. Dozens of blazes have destroyed produce worth millions of shekels. Arson attacks have been a nearly daily occurrence since the beginning of Hamas’s “March of Return” campaign in March.

Hundreds of arson kites outfitted with Molotov cocktails and fuel have been flown into Israel since the Hamas-led strategy was initiated, setting hundreds of fires and burning some 10,000 acres of land.

The Israeli farmers are appealing to the ICC to indict Hamas leaders Khaled Mashal, Saleh Arouri, and Zaher Jabarin for promoting “fire kite” terror.

According to the complaint, Mashal, Arouri and Jabarin “face command liability for the criminal actions of Hamas because they, along with other persons not within the jurisdiction of the court, exercise effective control and responsibility over them,” the Jerusalem Post reported.

These three Hamas leaders were also named because they have Jordanian citizenship and Jordan is a member of the ICC.

The IDF has documented and exposed Hamas’ responsibility for the relentless wave of airborne arson attacks on Israel’s south, debunking the widely accepted notion that it is a popular and spontaneous form of terrorism committed primarily by children.

‘The World Stood by in Silence’
The farmers, representing some 50,000 “concerned individuals” from Israel and around the world, with the help of Shurat Hadin-Israel Law Center, are suing Hamas for a series of offenses, including the burning of agricultural fields with burning kites, attacking Israel’s borders, recruiting children for combat purposes and using the civilian population as human shields.

“Israeli farmers have endured thousands of destructive arson attacks and rocket fire from Gaza, while the world stood by in silence,” said Shurat Hadin Director Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, according to the Post.

“Amazingly, Hamas which has orchestrated this campaign of terror…accuses Israel and the IDF of utilizing excessive force. We are demanding the ICC put an end to this hypocrisy and diligently investigate these Palestinian war crimes. The Rome Statute, which the Palestinians so cynically signed, cannot serve as a one-sided shield for Hamas’ murderous terrorism,” she added.

Shurat Hadin has been successful in curbing global terrorism by targeting its financial infrastructure, which is the grease that enables the machine of terrorism to work.

Colombian President Ivan Duque said Monday that his predecessor's decision to recognize a Palestinian state was irreversible.

"This decision is irreversible," he said in a radio interview, "first of all because the preisdent of the republic is the person designated by the constitution to mange foreign relations."
Duque said that he would have been happy to discuss the issue in the country's Foreign Affairs Advisory Commission, but that he respects the decisions his predecessor made during his tenure.
Colombia said last month that it was recognizing Palestine as a sovereign state. 
Palestinian news agency WAFA said the outgoing Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos handed a letter to Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Malki saying that Colombia "decided to recognize Palestine as a free, independent and sovereign state."

Israel's Foreign Ministry said it was surprised by the deciison. "We are surprised by the report in the media and are waiting for explanations from the new administration which is checking into the subject," the ministry said.

WATCH: We Will ‘Take Haifa by Force,’ Says Former Jordanian PM
Sep 3, 2018
“If we ever have military power, will we let them keep Haifa? We’ll take it,” said former Jordanian Prime Minister Al-Majali.

Former Jordanian Prime Minister Abdelsalam Al-Majali defended the Israeli-Jordanian peace treaty as serving Jordan’s essential needs – for the time being.

On the question of the Palestinians’ Right of Return, he said that “the Arabs do not have any power. If we ever have military power, will we let them [Israel] keep Haifa? We’ll take it. If tomorrow we become stronger and can take Haifa by force, will we really decline just because we have an agreement with them?”

Lana Del Ray Buckles Under BDS Pressure, Cancels Israel Concert

Lana Del Rey has again canceled a concert in Israel, this time choosing to stand with Israel haters. 
By: United with Israel Staff
Singer Lana Del Rey has canceled her planned performance at an Israeli music festival following weeks of relentless pressure from anti-Israel Palestinian boycott activists.
“It’s important for me to perform in both Palestine and Israel and treat all my fans equally,” Del Rey wrote on Twitter on Friday. “Unfortunately, it hasn’t been possible to line up both visits with such a short notice and therefore I’m postponing my appearance at the Meteor Festival until a time when I can schedule visits for both my Israeli and Palestinian fans, as well as hopefully other countries in the region.”
She was scheduled to perform at the Meteor Festival, a three-day Woodstock-like party at kibbutz Lehavot Habashan in northern Israel. Several other performers canceled their concerts following Del Ray’s announcement.
Del Rey’s decision was a reversal of statements she made earlier this month in which she defended her performance and said it was not political.
“Music is universal and should be used to bring us together,” she initially wrote in response to call to boycott Israel.
“I would like to remind you that performing in Tel Aviv is not a political statement or a commitment to the politics there just as singing here in California doesn’t mean my views are in alignment w[ith] my current governments opinions or sometimes inhuman actions,” she wrote.
‘An insult, a Disappointment’
Boy George, who did perform in Israel this year, panned Del Rey for her decision.
“Hmm. Gemini’s like Lana Del Rey don’t normally respond well to being told what to do. We don’t follow. We go forth with the message of love. She was wrong to cancel,” he tweeted Saturday.
“Let me know how @LanaDelRey not turning up to play in Israel made a real difference?” he added.
Israeli fans expressed disgust and disappointment with her move.
“It’s just a disgrace, she does not deserve any more sympathy,” one fan wrote.
Another fan wrote that her decision was “an insult, a disappointment. I am shocked that she caved to the pressure and did not stay the queen I held her to be.”

Powerful blasts have rocked a military airport in Damascus, with reports suggesting it was targeted by a missile attack or an airstrike. The military said they were caused by a short circuit at a nearby ammunition depot, however.
The blasts occurred at the Mazzeh military airport late on Saturday night, according to multiple reporters on the ground. Explosions can be heard in footage from Damascus posted on social media.

Hamas Leader Threatens Israel With 'Six Months' of Rockets on Tel Aviv

Yahya Sinwar says Israel and Hamas can make progress on prisoner swap even without reaching an agreement on long-term cease-fire

The leader of Hamas in the Gaza Strip, Yahya Sinwar, said Wednesday that talks were underway on reaching a cease-fire deal with Israel, while issuing a threat that "all of the missiles that the Palestinian resistance fired [at Israel] during the 51 days of the last war [in 2014] it can fire in five minutes."

Hamas, he warned, had sent a message to Israel through intermediaries that it is capable of "causing six months of rising and falling air raid sirens" in the Tel Aviv area. "We don't want a military confrontation, but we are not afraid of one."

About the negotiations with Israel via Egyptian and UN mediation, Sinwar said it was possible to make progress in talks on the return of two Israeli civilians being held in Gaza and the remains of two Israeli soldiers killed in combat there in 2014, in exchange for Palestinian prisoners. As reported by the Ma'an Palestinian news agency, Sinwar said the issue was not linked to contacts with Israel on a long-term cease-fire.

Speaking to reporters, Sinwar said such a cease-fire agreement could be reached with Israel even in the absence of reconciliation between the West Bank-based Palestinian Authority and Hamas, which controls the Strip. He said that Egypt has expressed a willingness to pursue such a deal.

As for reconciliation between Hamas and Fatah, Sinwar said Fatah had responded on Wednesday to an Egyptian proposal and that the response was "worse than their initial proposal." Commenting on the prospect that the Palestinian Authority might impose sanctions on Gaza if there is no progress on Palestinian reconciliation, Sinwar said: "That would be a break with the rules of the game and we would respond accordingly."

Late on Wednesday, the White House took the Palestinian Authority to task for its refusal to be involved in efforts to reach an agreement on restoring calm to Gaza. The statement and its timing - shortly after Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sissi had spoken to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas about Gaza - are indications that the Trump administration and Egypt are attempting to ratchet up the pressure on Abbas to support an agreement and to have the Palestinian Authority gradually reassume responsibility for the Strip.

Hamas forcibly took control of Gaza from the Palestinian Authority in 2007 after Fatah lost parliamentary elections three year before.

In the statement, Trump's special Middle East envoy, Jason Greenblatt, said: "The Palestinian Authority cannot criticize from the sidelines. The Palestinian Authority should be part of the solution for the Palestinians of Gaza and Palestinians as a whole. If not, others will fill that void." He added that "it's time for the Palestinian Authority to lead the Palestinian people – all Palestinians – to a better future."

Up to now, Abbas has voiced skepticism over talks under Egyptian mediation on Gaza. One of the reasons for Abbas' approach is concern that the talks would strengthen Hamas at the Palestinian Authority's expense.

On Wednesday, remarks about Gaza made by the U.S. ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, were leaked to the press. In a telephone briefing to the American Jewish Congress, Friedman said an agreement on Gaza without the Palestinian would be a "tremendous reward" for Hamas. Despite the Palestinian Authority's many shortcomings, the Trump administration prefers to work with the Palestinian Authority rather than Hamas, Friedman added.

U.S. Ambassador Friedman: Rebuilding Gaza without Abbas is 'tremendous prize' for Hamas
The Israeli government is once again weighing the possibility of a new ceasefire with Hamas - and already we hear the criticisms.  Habayit Hayehudi leader and government minister Naftali Bennett attacks any negotiation with Hamas as "surrender." Meanwhile, others fear that these latest talks, which cut out President Abbas, will weaken the one Palestinian party that Israel should be negotiating with.

Neither of these arguments are true. There is little new about the current ceasefire negotiations. 

It is part of a nasty cycle that all of the parties have been stuck in since Hamas’s violent takeover of the Gaza Strip in 2007. It has led to three conflicts, each of which was preceded by the same pattern of behavior; ended with a similar temporary agreement brokered; and ultimately reignited because the agreements never stuck. 

Here is how the cycle plays out.

Step 1: Hamas insists on arming itself and using violence against civilians as a tool to achieve its objectives and refuses to recognize Israel. Israel responds by squeezing Gaza economically to pressure Hamas politically, deter it militarily, and limit its capabilities. This is where Israel and Hamas have been since Operation Protective Edge ended in 2014, but also where they were in the periods before the 2012 and 2008 conflicts

Step 2: Eventually pressure builds inside Gaza and Hamas escalates its use of violence both to generate domestic political support and to try to get Israel to take steps to ease the economic situation. The primary tool for Hamas is rocket fire, though over time it has also evolved to include tunnel attacks and most recently fire kites.  


In this latest round, we saw this period start in earnest in March this year with the March of Return protests that were initially spurred on by civil society groups in Gaza, but ultimately co-opted by Hamas. In 2014, it was the collapse of U.S. sponsored peace talks, the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teenagers by Hamas, and the murder of an Arab-Israeli teen by Jewish extremists in response that ultimately set conditions for conflict.

Step 3: Israel responds to this Hamas escalation, with its own escalation including military strikes inside of Gaza and punitive economic measure that further choke the strip in an effort to get Hamas to change its behavior and stop the attacks. We saw this throughout this spring and summer with Israeli airstrikes and temporary full closures of the crossings into Gaza.

Step 4: Violence and political pressure become too much and the tensions explode into a major conflict that does severe damage to all sides – though the highest death toll is always experienced by the civilian population in Gaza. Thankfully, we have not hit that point yet - and the hope is that all the parties having learned from the mistakes of the past can skip this terrible step and move directly on to negotiating a new ceasefire.

Step 5: Egypt steps in and brokers a barebones ceasefire as it did in 2009, 2012, and 2014 that involves the cessation of violence on all sides and some minor steps by Israel to ease the blockade. The agreement always includes subsequent steps to be taken in the future to create a more sustainable long-term situation. But those are not taken seriously and with the immediate threat of war receding, are not followed up on by any of the parties. 


After a deal was negotiated in Cairo to end the 2014 war, for example, the UN, working with all sides was able to institute the Gaza Reconstruction Mechanism to increase the flow of goods into Gaza while meeting Israeli security requirements. Eventually, a series of small measures such as loosening certain export restrictions into Israeli markets for goods produced in Gaza were also implemented. But none of these changed the fundamental economic and humanitarian situation on the ground.  

Meanwhile, the subsequent follow on talks that were supposed to take place in Cairo and address tougher issues beyond "quiet for quiet" and short-term economic measures, never materialized. The likely scenario today is the same: An agreement that avoids war but puts off tougher questions that likely will never be addressed.  

Step 6: The international community convenes a major donor conference where a lot of money is pledged for reconstructing Gaza. But much of the funds never materialize because no one wants to invest in projects that will inevitably be destroyed in the next conflict. And with the war over international attention moves elsewhere.

In 2009, the Gaza donor conference in Sharm al-Sheikh raised $4.5 billion. In 2014, the Cairo conference resulted in commitments of $5.3 billion. Much of that money never materialized or trickled in very slowly. And even when it did, restrictions on what could be imported into Gaza and Hamas’s use of funds and materials to strengthen its own situation and invest in a new conflict have made rebuilding painfully slow.  

Step 7: Everyone goes back to business as usual. The blockade continues. Israel invests in countermeasures to respond to the latest threat from Hamas. It now has Iron Dome and counter-tunneling technology. Next, it will be building technology that can create wind currents into Gaza that make it impossible to fly kites into Israel.

Yehiyeh Sinwar, the Hamas militant group's leader in the Gaza Strip, speaks to foreign correspondents in his office in Gaza City. May 10, 2018.Khalil Hamra / AP
Hamas develops new techniques to prepare for the next war. We do not know what will come after the kites, but certainly Hamas will find something new to terrorize Israelis.  

Eventually as things do not get better in Gaza and pressure builds the cycle of violence begins again.  

What does this cycle tell us about what the parties should do next?  First, barring any better options, for the moment Israel is right to pursue a new ceasefire and Egypt, the UN, the United States, and other Arab states should all support this approach. At least it avoids another deadly war.  

Second, the Trump administration should stop its systematic effort of defunding aid to the Palestinians both through UNRWA and USAID, as this will only further destabilize an already delicate situation.

But the most important point is that eventually there will be a reckoning.  

With every crisis, the humanitarian situation in Gaza worsens. There will come a moment when basic order collapses altogether, or Israel is forced to invade and retake Gaza.  

The only way to avoid this terrible outcome in the long-term is a sustainable political arrangement that should include both a long-term ceasefire between Israel and Hamas that includes major economic opening of Gaza combined with a Palestinian reconciliation deal between Fatah and Hamas that slowly brings the Palestinian Authority back into Gaza.  

Ultimately, the biggest winners of a new ceasefire will be the civilians in Gaza and southern Israel who will avoid the immediate misery of more violence. But unless everyone can move beyond the cycle of the past ten years, they will also be the biggest losers - as inevitably, over time, this agreement too will break down.

If the Nazis Had RFID Chip Implants…
https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/113095/rfid-chips-humans-forbidden-torah/?utm_source=Breaking+Israel+News&utm_campaign=8f9ce14b9c-

The anger of Hashem again flared up against Yisrael; and He incited David against them, saying, “Go and number Yisrael and Yehuda.” II Samuel 24:1 (The Israel Bible™️)
RFID tag. (Credit: The Digital Bridges/Screen capture)

Blurring the boundaries separating man from machine, a technology growing in popularity allows computer chips to be implanted under the skin. This may be prohibited by the Bible but one rabbi warns of a greater danger: the chips could be used as a Nazi-like tool to control the populace.  

The process is relatively simple. An identifying integrated circuit device or Radio-frequency identification (RFID) transponder encased in silicate glass approximately the size of a grain of rice is implanted under the skin using a device similar to a syringe. Local anaesthetic is used during the procedure. The use of subdermal RFID’s for domestic and farm animals is widespread and some countries require them to be implanted This was first done by a physician in 1998 and was approved for use in humans by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2004.

Proponents of this new technology claim a myriad of benefits. Some companies currently recommend implantation for their employees for security purposes. Locks and elevators can be paired with sensors so that only specific people can open a door. Computers can use the sensor to identify users when they log on, allowing them to access files and systems specific to them. Using the chip as “biopayment” in place of a credit card is in the developmental stages and could lead to a cashless society. It is also feasible to create a smartgun that will only allow the owner of a gun to fire it. Theoretically, a GPS-enabled chip could one day make it possible for individuals to be physically located anywhere on the planet.

The chip can link to an external database containing vital medical information for emergency use. This would be especially useful in cases of dementia or where the patient is uncooperative. It can also be used by law enforcement agencies to identify subjects and track their movements. Both of these applications raise serious concerns about civil liberties.

In addition to concerns about privacy, hacking the chips could lead to egregious cases of identity theft. Some states have passed legislation preventing companies and organizations from requiring their members or employees to be implanted with chips.

Some Christian activists, including conspiracy theorist Mark Dice, the author of a book titled The Resistance Manifesto, make a link between chipping of humans and the Biblical Mark of the Beast prophesied to be a future requirement for buying and selling.

Several anti-Jewish websites have written that implanted chips are actually a Jewish plot to control the minds of the populace. These conspiracists cite the many Jews who are developing the technology as proof of their theories. They also make the unsubstantiated claim that Jews are working on initiatives to require chip implantation.

The sites claim the chips could be used for the purposes of mind-control as per The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. Published in Russia in 1903 but still printed around the world, the Protocols is a fabricated account purporting to describe a Jewish plan for global domination. In addition to hijacking the chips for the purposes of mind-control, theft and to wreak general havoc, the sites claim the GPS feature will be used for the purposes of locating Christian children. This is a perpetuation of the spurious medieval blood libel in which Jews were accused of murdering Christian children for the purpose of using their blood to bake matzah.

Though the issue has not been formally addressed by any rabbinic body, it may be that having the chips implanted violates the Torah prohibition against numbering or counting Jews.

When you take a census of B’nei Yisrael according to their enrollment, each shall pay Hashem a ransom for himself on being enrolled, that no plague may come upon them through their being enrolled. Exodus 30:12

Rabbi Pinchas Winston, a prolific end-of-days author, did not give a Halachic (Torah law) opinion but he suggested that as the chips currently operate, the Biblical prohibition may not apply. When scanned at the proper frequency, the chips respond with a unique 16-digit number which is then linked with information about the user on a separate database.

“You are not counting people or assigning them a number,” Rabbi Winston told Breaking Israel News. “You are identifying the chip which was assigned a number.”

Nonetheless, the rabbi warned that implanting chips posed a significant threat, one that has already caused great harm to the Jewish people.

“This has so much potential for good that it is almost inevitable that governments will want to use this,” Rabbi WInston said. “They can’t afford prisons and policing anymore for the expanding populations. Rather than put someone in prison, they can make it impossible to exit their home.  If they identify a criminal, they can remotely shut down their car, deny them access to money and food. A lot of people will be deterred form non-compliance with the law .”

“Though this is not specifically described in any Jewish end-of-days literature, this is still a scary  scenario,” Winston said. “Numbering the Jews, precisely as is forbidden in the Torah, was what the Nazis did to the Jews. They needed to keep track of the Jews. If these chips had been around, the Nazis surely would have used them.”

“Jews can say, ‘They will never put us in concentration camps in America’. But if, God-forbid,  an anti-Semitic regime takes power, they won’t have to,” Rabbi Winston said. “Captivity has different forms.”

“People are waiting to see swastikas and camps before they raise the alarm that the government has too much control. But they don’t need camps. With cities, with the urban  lifestyle and dependence on technology, we are already there. It begins with forms that seem innocuous, that are just the next step in technology, the next gadget.”

“I understand the necessity for this but the essential question is ‘Who will be in control ?’” Winston asked. “The wisest people in society who have our best interests in mind? Or is it someone, perhaps a government, that is only interested in their need to control society.  We learned in the Holocaust that it only takes one leader who hijacks technology to destroy the world. He may not even exist today, but he could be waiting in the wings.”

Palestinians Spread Libel that Israel Pushes Illegal Drugs
https://unitedwithisrael.org/palestinians-spread-libel-that-israel-pushes-illegal-drugs/?
The Head of the [Palestinian Authority’s Preventive Security Force recently accused Israel of “undermining the [PA’s] war on drugs,” advancing the lie that Israel is somehow responsible for Palestinian drug problems.
By: United with Israel Staff
While a mushrooming drug problem is a very real issue facing Palestinian society, high-ranking government officials, including Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, are pushing lies instead of tackling the epidemic head on.

Specifically, the Palestinian Authority (PA) is blaming Israel for its drug problem, with the chief of the PA Preventive Security Force, Muhannad Abu Ali, spreading slanderous claims, according to a recent report by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW).

Indeed, after drug-growing fields were recently discovered near the Palestinian city of Jenin, Ali claimed Israel was “responsible” for the crops in addition to drug use among Palestinians.

“[T]he common factor in all of the growing fields that were discovered in the Jenin district is their connection to groups within the Green Line,” claimed Ali according to a report in August by the PA’s official daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida.

Ali’s accusations are in line with the PA’s pattern of repeating the libel that Israel encourages Palestinian youth’s drug use to “destroy the next generation.”

In April, PMW reported that the chief of the PA Police in Tulkarem made the outrageous claim that Israel is “the main cause of the spread of the [marijuana] nurseries and [drug] distribution in Palestinian society,” according to a report in Al-Hayat Al-Jadida.

Perhaps most egregiously, PA President Mahmoud Abbas in January accused Israel on official PA TV of “exporting drugs to the Palestinians in frightening amounts.”

The recent report in Al-Hayat Al-Jadida flesh out Ali’s conspiracy theory, explaining “[Ali] also emphasized that the arrest of some of those involved has exposed their connection to people from [Israel], and added that what is happening confirms that there are efforts to put together gangs to plant these [drug] species for the benefit of Israeli groups or Palestinian groups with Israeli citizenship.”

The report continued, “Ali held [Israel] responsible for the spread of much of these phenomena in  Palestinian society, prime among them planting drugs, and said: ‘If these means succeed, they are liable to destroy the foundations of the public order and create a group of people that is dealing in drugs.'”

Accusations such as these are consistent with the PA educational system, which indoctrinates Palestinian youth to believe all of its society’s ills are caused by Israel, notwithstanding the fact that the PA tortures its own citizens, represses freedom of speech and press, and has refused to hold an election in well over a decade.

Netanyahu: Burgeoning Alliance with Arab Nations Could Bring Peace with Palestinians
 https://unitedwithisrael.org/netanyahu-burgeoning-alliance-with-arab-nations-could-bring-peace-with-palestinians/?
Netanyahu told the media in Lithuania that he sees thawing relations with Arab nations as a potential new avenue to pursue peace with the Palestinians.
By: United with Israel Staff
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated Monday that he views Arab nations’ “normalization” of relations with the Jewish state as the possible key to achieving peace with the Palestinians.
“I believe that if we have peace with the broader Arab world, it will help us get to peace with the Palestinians,” Netanyahu explained in an interview with Lithuania’s LRT public broadcaster.

Netanyahu visited the Baltic nation to improve ties with Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia during a regional summit.

In the LRT interview, Netanyahu stressed that Israel is increasingly finding common ground with its Arab neighbors in the region, all of whom face the looming threat of Iran’s nuclear ambitions.

The Islamic Republic also continues to menace Israel, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Lebanon, and Syria with terror proxies such as Hezbollah and Hamas, which Iran arms, trains, and finances.

While Israel has only secured peace treaties with Egypt and Jordan, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman recently recognized Israel’s right to exist and indicated he envisions the potential for open diplomatic relations in the future in an interview with The Atlantic.

Both Israel and Saudi Arabia find themselves the target of Iranian threats and aggression, including recent rocket attacks attributed to the Islamic Republic.
While Netanyahu did not explicitly connect the dots in his interview in Lithuania, countries such as Saudi Arabia may be incentivized to pressure the Palestinians into coming to an agreement with Israel based on Arab nations’ pressing need for a unified front against Iran.

For Israeli Farmers Harmed by Hamas Arson Terror, Financial Help is on the Way

After enduring close to four months of relentless airborne arson attacks launched by Palestinian terrorists, Israeli farmers in the south will be eligible for loans to help them get back on their feet.
By: United with Israel Staff
Beginning at the end of March, the Hamas terror group organized violent rioting along the Gaza border that has involved infiltration attempts, murder by sniper, and daily airborne arson attacks, using kites, balloons, drones, and even an abused hawk to send incendiary devices into Israel.

Unfortunately, the terror group’s airborne arson operations have scorched thousands of acres of Israeli territory, destroying farms, decimating nature preserves, and killing wildlife.
In total, the arson attacks have caused millions of dollars in damage, with the total number of fires stared estimated at over 1,000.

Israeli farmers have been hit hard by the tactic, watching their crops go up in flames as they struggle to protect their families.
In response, the Jewish Agency has reportedly allocated funds to grant loans to businesses harmed by the balloon and kite terror, in addition to those affected by Hamas’ conventional weapon of choice, rockets.

According to a report by Ynet, the agency will extend the loans via expedited procedures to ensure that small and medium businesses near the Gaza border get the relief they need.
Specifically, the loans are intended to assist business in communities whose security has been threatened by arson and rocket attacks.

The source of the financial aid is the Ness Foundation, which is funded by the Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest and Miami’s Jewish community, reported Ynet.

Will Trump Take Palestinian ‘Right of Return’ Off the Table?
https://unitedwithisrael.org/will-trump-to-take-palestinian-right-of-return-off-the-table/?
Aug 26, 2018
In a move that could change decades of US policy, the Trump administration may stop recognizing as “refugees” the descendants of Palestinians who left territory that became the state of Israel.
By: The Algemeiner
The Trump administration is prepared to announce a new policy that effectively cancels the so-called “right of return” for Palestinians.

According to Israel’s Channel Two, the policy relates to both the refugees themselves and UNRWA, the UN agency that serves them.

UNRWA is controversial because it counts as refugees not only those Palestinians displaced in Israel’s 1948 War of Independence, but also their descendants. As a result, there are now over five million registered Palestinian refugees, an enormous number of whom have never set foot in what was British Mandatory Palestine.

The Palestinians insist the refugees must be allowed to return to Israel, which would effectively destroy the country and replace it with an Arab-majority state.

Channel Two reports that the Trump administration’s plan to solve the issue will be announced at the beginning of September and will have several stages.

First, a report will be issued on the Palestinian refugees, which will number them at approximately 500,000, rather than the five million registered by UNRWA.

Second, the US will formally reject UNRWA’s definition of refugee status as inheritable.

Third, UNRWA’s budget for operating in Judea and Samaria will be cut.

Fourth, Israel will be asked to reconsider allowing UNRWA to operate in Judea and Samaria altogether, in order to prevent the Arab countries from making up the shortfall from the US cuts.

According to Channel Two, the Israeli government sees the plan as a “historic step” on par with Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and move the US embassy there. They see it as effectively taking the refugee issue — one of the thorniest in the Middle East conflict — off the table.

The White House had no comment on the story, saying only that it would make its stance clear at the appropriate time.
