Northern Irish Soccer Authority Rejects Calls to Cancel Friendly Match With Israel
https://unitedwithisrael.org/northern-irish-soccer-authority-rejects-calls-to-cancel-friendly-match-with-israel/?
Irish Football Association has rejected calls from BDS supporters to nix a friendly match between the country and Israel next month.

By: Ben Cohen/The Algemeiner 

The top soccer authority in Northern Ireland has roundly rejected calls from supporters of the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) campaign to nix a friendly match between Northern Ireland and Israel next month.

The Irish Football Association — soccer’s governing body in the six counties that comprise Northern Ireland — said in a statement on Monday that it had “no intention of canceling Northern Ireland’s international challenge match against Israel on 11 September.”

In purely soccer terms, friendly matches are not regarded as major competitive events so much as opportunities for coaches to experiment with new players and different tactics. Both Northern Ireland — 27 in the FIFA world rankings — and Israel — 93 in the FIFA world rankings — are shaping up to try to qualify for the next FIFA World Cup in Qatar in 2022. The two sides last faced off in Tel Aviv in 2013, in a contest that ended in a 1-1 tie.

But for the republican nationalist Sinn Fein party — which enthusiastically backs BDS and has historical links with the PLO and other Palestinian groups — the match is an important platform to promote the boycott campaign more broadly.

The bid to get the match canceled has been led by Sinead Ennis, a Sinn Fein member of Northern Ireland’s Legislative Assembly. Earlier this month, Ennis said she was making the call on “the back of the recent massacre of over 100 demonstrators and the maiming of thousands more by the Israeli army” — a reference to recent Hamas-provoked confrontations between the IDF and Palestinian rioters, many of whom were carrying weapons, on the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip.

An Extremely Divisive Political Policy
Following Monday’s announcement by the Irish Football Association, Ennis declared that she was “once again calling on the IFA to cancel this match and send out a strong signal that the slaughter of Palestinians in Gaza, breach of international and human rights abuse won’t be tolerated.”

In a statement responding to Ennis, the advocacy group Northern Ireland Friends of Israel (NIFI) declared that it was “sad to see a party here seek to impose an extremely divisive political policy on a sporting association, particularly given the huge strides made by the IFA and other sporting bodies to make sport more inclusive for all.”

The NIFI observed that both teams reflect the diversity of their respective societies.

“The Northern Ireland team have Protestants and Catholics playing for it,” the NIFI pointed out.”Jews, Arabs, Druze and even Circassians have featured in the Israeli international squad — one of the most diverse and inclusive in the Middle East.”

The Palestine Football Association (PFA) — led by former convicted terrorist Jibril Rajoub — has been campaigning for Israel’s expulsion from international soccer since 2006, when Rajoub took over the body. Violent threats made by Rajoub in June contributed to the cancellation of a planned friendly match in Jerusalem between Argentina and Israel in the run-up to the World Cup competition in Russia.

“PepsiCo and SodaStream are an inspired match,” said PepsiCo Chairman and CEO Indra Nooyi. SodaStream “has built an extraordinary company.”
https://unitedwithisrael.org/pepsico-buys-sodastream-calls-acquisition-an-inspired-match/?utm_source=pushengage&utm_medium=pushnotification&utm_campaign=pushengage
By: United with Israel Staff and AP

PepsiCo Inc. and Israel’s SodaStream International Ltd. announced Monday that they have entered into an agreement under which the American company will acquire all outstanding shares of SodaStream for $144.00 per share in cash, in a transaction valued at $3.2 billion.

“PepsiCo and SodaStream are an inspired match,” said PepsiCo Chairman and CEO Indra Nooyi. “[SodaStream CEO] Daniel [Birnbaum] and his leadership team have built an extraordinary company that is offering consumers the ability to make great-tasting beverages while reducing the amount of waste generated.”

SodaStream’s “focus is well-aligned with Performance with Purpose, our philosophy of making more nutritious products while limiting our environmental footprint. Together, we can advance our shared vision of a healthier, more-sustainable planet,” he added.

Daniel Birnbaum, SodaStream CEO and director, said that the acquisition “marks an important milestone in the SodaStream journey. It is validation of our mission to bring healthy, convenient and environmentally friendly beverage solutions to consumers around the world.”

SodaStream is “honored to be chosen as PepsiCo’s beachhead for at home preparation to empower consumers around the world with additional choices,” he added. PepsiCo’s strong distribution capabilities, global reach, R&D, design and marketing expertise, combined with SodaStream’s differentiated and unique product range will position SodaStream for further expansion and breakthrough innovation, PepsiCo stated.

The transaction is another step in PepsiCo’s Performance with Purpose journey, promoting health and wellness through environmentally friendly, cost-effective and fun-to-use beverage solutions.

The closing of the deal is expected by January 2019.

Israel’s SodaStream is the leading sparkling water brand in volume in the world and the leading manufacturer and distributor of Sparkling Water Makers. Their product enables consumers to easily transform ordinary tap water into sparkling water and flavored sparkling water in seconds. By making ordinary water fun and exciting to drink, SodaStream helps consumers drink more water.

“The recent major acquisitions of Israeli companies prove not only the technological capabilities that have been developed in Israel, but the business capabilities as well. I welcome this huge deal that will enrich the state treasury and also the important decision to keep the company in Israel,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated.

Thriving Despite BDS
SodaStream’s products are available at more than 80,000 individual retail stores across 45 countries.

SodaStream, which produces machines that allow people to make fizzy drinks, has been targeted by the anti-Israel boycott movement. SodaStream announced in 2014 it was closing its factory in Judea, and the BDS movement declared victory and said its pressure was behind the decision.

Birnbaum said the boycott movement has only had a “marginal” effect on his business. He accused the BDS movement of spreading lies and said Palestinian employees were given pay and benefits far higher than anything else they could find in the Palestinian Authority.

“It’s propaganda. It’s politics. It’s hate. It’s anti-Semitism. It’s all the bad stuff we don’t want to be part of,” Birnbaum said.

SodaStream employed up to 600 Palestinians at the Judea factory and sought to transfer their jobs to the Israeli plant in the Negev. Israel has granted fewer work permits due to security issues. Thus many Palestinians have lost their source of livelihood, while the factory continued to thrive.

“SodaStream should have been encouraged in the West Bank (Judea and Samaria) if (the BDS movement) truly cared about the Palestinian people,” Birnbaum said.

Jewish Democratic Group Rejects Minnesota Lawmaker Over Anti-Israel Statements
Aug 19, 2018
Omar, who has labeled Israel as an “apartheid regime” that has “hypnotized the world,” is favored to take a seat in Congress after winning her Democratic primary in Minnesota.
By: JNS.org
Minnesota state lawmaker Ilhan Omar, who has labeled Israel an “apartheid regime” that has “hypnotized the world,” is favored to take a seat in Congress after winning her Democratic primary on Tuesday in a heavily Democratic district in her state.
She will face Republican Jennifer Zielinski in November.
If Omar wins, she would replace another Israel critic, Rep. Keith Ellison, who is running for Minnesota state attorney general. Ellison, the Deputy Chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), is known for associating with anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
Omar isn’t the only Muslim American critical of Israel running for Congress. In Michigan last week, Rashida Tlaib won her primary and runs unopposed in November. She has called for cutting US assistance to Israel, which she has stated is “discriminatory”—a move that has been condemned by groups like the Jewish Democratic Council of America (JDCA).

Palestinians Choose to Fund Terrorists Over Children’s Education
https://unitedwithisrael.org/palestinians-choose-to-fund-terrorists-over-childrens-education/?utm_source=pushengage&utm_medium=pushnotification&utm_campaign=pushengage
“Abbas has budgeted more than $350,000,000 for terrorists and their families. Maybe the PA should pay for Palestinian education rather than Palestinian terror?” Security Minister Erdan suggested.
By: United with Israel Staff

The Palestinian Authority (PA) on Wednesday made it clear to the world that if forced to choose, it will pay salaries to terrorists rather than for the education of Palestinian children.

Recent reports claimed that the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), dedicated solely to serve the Palestinians, did not have enough money to open up the UNRWA school system for over 320,000 Palestinian children.

UNRWA’s budget for the schools could easily be covered by the PA from the money it spends paying terrorist prisoners and families of so-called “Martyrs,” terrorists killed while attacking Israelis. Yet PA President Mahmoud Abbas announced on official PA TV that “Israel considers them (i.e., terrorist prisoners) criminals… Even if we need to cut from our flesh, we will continue to give the support and aid.”

He didn’t say a word about using money to open up the schools for Palestinian children, Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) noted.

On Thursday, UNRWA Commissioner-General Pierre Krähenbühl announced that the schools will open on time but the problem is not solved.

“While announcing today the opening of the school year, I wish to be clear that UNRWA is by no stretch of the imagination out of the woods. Since January 2018, UNRWA has mobilized $238 million of additional funding, which is very encouraging. However, we currently only have funding to run the Agency’s services until the end of September. We need a further $217 M to ensure that our schools not only open but can be run until the end of the year.”

For the year 2018, the PA allocated NIS 1.237 billion for salaries to terrorist prisoners, released terrorist prisoners, the families of deceased terrorists and wounded terrorists. These funds, paid to fewer than 100,000 people, are more than one-third of the entire budget of the PA’s Ministry of Education (NIS 3.35 billion), which provides educational services for over a million Palestinians, PMW pointed out.

UNRWA’s budget deficit – no more than 800 million shekels – is cumulative for all of the UNRWA-run schools (including those in Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon). In total, these schools provide education to 526,000 students, of which, according to the UNRWA 2017 annual report, less than 320,000 live in the PA-controlled areas. Accordingly, the deficit to provide educational services to  students resident in the PA areas would be substantially less.

However, instead of educating its children, the PA continuously rejects the demand that it cease paying terrorists and their families and relies on the international community to provide basic services.

PA Shirks its Responsibility
Just three days ago, during a meeting between PA Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah and a delegation from the PLO Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs, led by the newly appointed Director of the Commission Qadri Abu Bakr, Hamdallah emphasized that “the firm position of the leadership” headed Abbas is full commitment to pay the terror stipends “despite the challenges.”

“The provision of all types of support to the Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs in its lofty and patriotic activities for our brave prisoners in the occupation’s jails is continuing,” Hamdallah stated.

He emphasized that the prisoners are “the spearhead of the Palestinian struggle, and that they are the ones who have sacrificed the years of their lives for our just cause.”

“The contrast between UNRWA’s financial crisis and the PA’s insistence on continuing to reward terrorism exposes and highlights how the PA shirks its responsibility to provide basic services to its people, relying instead on international aid so that it can continue its repugnant practice of rewarding terrorism,” PMW stated.

PMW called on “all the relevant actors, including the UN and PA donor countries, to demand that the PA prioritize the provision of education to its children rather than continue rewarding terrorism.”

Israeli Minister of Internal Security Gilad Erdan tweeted that UNRWA “says it needs $217,000,000 to run schools for Palestinian children. It wants President Donald Trump and Federica Mogherini, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, to foot the bill. Abbas has budgeted more than $350,000,000 for terrorists and their families. Maybe the PA should pay for Palestinian education rather than Palestinian terror? #Crazy Idea.”

Opinion: Hamas Blackmail, Media Silence
https://worldisraelnews.com/opinion-hamas-blackmail-media-silence/?
 August 9, 2018
Opinion: Hamas Blackmail, Media Silence(Shutterstock)
Most sad of all is that because of the refusal of the international media to highlight human rights violations by Hamas, the Palestinians will suffer even more.


By: Bassam Tawil, The Gatestone Institute


Hamas, the Palestinian Islamist group that rules the Gaza Strip, says it wants Israel and Egypt to keep the border crossings with its coastal territory open on a permanent basis. The message that Hamas has been relaying to Israel and Egypt has been along the lines of: If you seek a ceasefire, you must reopen, on a permanent basis, the Kerem Shalom commercial border crossing (with Israel) and the Rafah terminal along the border with Egypt.


It is worth noting that the Kerem Shalom border crossing has been open for most of the time in the past few years, with Israel allowing the entry of goods and medical supplies into the Gaza Strip. Recently, Israel shut down the border crossing temporarily, but only after Palestinian rioters had set the terminal on fire at least twice in the previous weeks. Israel’s decision temporarily to shut down the Kerem Shalom also came in response to hundreds of kite and balloon arson attacks launched from the Gaza Strip against Israel, and which have set fire to more than 30,000 dunams (more than 7,400 acres) of land in southern Israel.


The Rafah border crossing with Egypt is a different story altogether. For the past few years, the Egyptian authorities have kept the terminal almost completely shut. Why? Because the Egyptians do not like Hamas in particular and the Palestinians in general. They see Hamas as an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood and suspect that the Gaza-based group has been involved with Islamist terror groups waging war on the Egyptian army in the Sinai Peninsula.


Like many Arab countries, the Egyptians consider the Palestinians to be an ungrateful people who have never appreciated the sacrifices their Arab brothers made for them. In recent years, a growing number of Egyptians, such as the prominent Egyptian writer Lamis Jaber, have been expressing their views against the Palestinians in public.


Some Palestinians have gone so far as accusing the Egyptian media of waging a campaign aimed at delegitimizing the Palestinians.


This is the reason most Arab countries impose severe restrictions on the Palestinians and even subject them to discriminatory and apartheid laws, such as denying them citizenship and the right to purchase real estate, as well as preventing them from working in various professions, as is the situation in Lebanon.


What prompts Hamas’ demand?
What, then, is really prompting Hamas’s demand that Israel and Egypt reopen the border crossings on a permanent basis? Is Hamas suddenly showing genuine concern for the well-being of the two million Palestinians living under its control in the Gaza Strip? Is Hamas suddenly sincere about ending the humanitarian and economic crisis there? Or has Hamas perhaps finally turned into non-violent peaceful movement that seeks to turn the Gaza Strip into the “Singapore of the Middle East?”


Alas, it seems that none of the above is so. Hamas apparently has something on its mind, but it is not a torrent of tears for its people. Not, at least, while Hamas leaders continue to live in the lap of five-star-hotel luxury from Turkey to Egypt to Lebanon and beyond.


What Hamas has on its mind is Hamas. Hamas’s strategy is to remain in power forever; to achieve that goal, it is prepared to do anything. Hamas has always acted out of its own narrow interests while holding the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip hostage to its extremist ideology and repressive regime.


So, when Hamas says it wants the border crossings to be open all the time, that is because Hamas is thinking of what is good for Hamas. According to reports in various Palestinian media platforms, Hamas has been using the border crossings to enrich its coffers and add more cash to the bank accounts of its corrupt officials. This vocation consists not only of asking for bribes, but also nepotism. If you have good connections with someone high up in Hamas, you will be able to pass through the Rafah border crossing more easily and faster than others.


Palestinians have always known about Hamas’s corrupt practices at the border crossings, but only a few dare to speak out about them. Palestinians are understandably afraid to talk about the bribes that Hamas officials collect or demand from Palestinians wishing to leave the Gaza Strip through the Rafah terminal (during the rare times it is opened by the Egyptians). Reports also say we are talking about big money that is being collected from desperate Palestinians who want to travel abroad for their studies or to receive medical treatment.


Hamas’ ‘cheap exploitation’ of Gazans
One Palestinian not afraid to speak out about Hamas’s corrupt practices at the border crossings is Hassan Asfour, a former Palestinian Authority minister, human rights activist and political columnist.


In a daring move, Asfour published an article on August 2, in which he called on the Hamas leadership to stop blackmailing Palestinian would-be passengers at the Rafah terminal. Asfour denounced the practice as “cheap exploitation,” and pointed out that Hamas was requesting from $1500 to $3000 per traveler.


“The political factions in the Gaza Strip know about this, but chose to ignore it,” Asfour wrote. “This has destructive repercussions on the daily lives of the people.” In an implicit reference to Hamas, Asfour wrote:


“Those who claim to be confronting Israel are nothing but corrupt, extortionist bribe-takers. Today, every politician in the Gaza Strip is well aware of the fact that the corruption at the border crossings has become the norm of the official statement, and not actions by individuals or a certain apparatus.”


The corruption, he added, is “part of the Hamas administration in the Gaza Strip and these practices are being done with Hamas’s knowledge and under its supervision.”


Addressing Hamas leaders Ismail Haniyeh and Yayha Al-Sinwar, Asfour said, referring to the bribes and corrupt practices at the border crossings: “Stop this national and human disgrace. Enough of this unprecedented corruption. Do not underestimate the anger of the people [over the Hamas corruption].”


What is the role of the international media?
Asfour’s revelations about Hamas’s corrupt manipulation of Palestinians come as no surprise to many Palestinians, especially those who live in the Gaza Strip and those who are familiar with Hamas’s repressive practices. However, here one always needs to ask: where is the role of the international media in exposing Hamas’s corruption and the exploitation of its own people? Why is it that the mainstream media in the West does not want to pay any attention to what Asfour and other Palestinians are saying? The answer is always simple: As far as foreign journalists are concerned, if Israel is not the one asking for bribes or blackmailing the Palestinians, there is no story there.


Most sad of all is that because of the refusal of the international media to highlight human rights violations by Hamas, the Palestinians will suffer even more while the UN and Egypt talk about a ceasefire deal between Hamas and Israel, which would have the borders crossings reopened on a permanent basis. This means that Hamas leaders will again be able to laugh all the way to the bank, while their people hunt for the means to pay extortionate bribes of up to $3000 to get themselves healed or educated.

Her name is Ahed Tamimi and the media loves her. She looks great on screen, and makes the fight against Israel look so innocent and pure. Yet, she is a sick terrorist, groomed as such by her parents since she was a little child. She doesn’t carry out the terror attacks herself, but she is the PR front to help make Israel look bad in the media to create compassion for the actual terrorists.

Tamimi is no innocent child
Just listen to what she says in the above video. She calls upon everybody to do “stabbings, martyrdom, suicide bombings, throwing stones, everyone must do these things so we can unite this way”. That is not the way an innocent non-violent protester speaks. She is a full supporter of the worst kind of terrorism to kill innocent Israelis.

Pop Superstar Lana Del Rey to Perform in Israel
https://unitedwithisrael.org/pop-superstar-lana-del-rey-to-perform-in-israel/?utm_source=pushengage&utm_medium=pushnotification&utm_campaign=pushengage
The American singer-songwriter is slated to perform during a massive music festival in Israel’s north in September.

By: United with Israel Staff

Elizabeth Woolridge Grant, better known by her stage name Lana Del Rey, is booked to perform in Israel next month, joining the lineup of a music festival that boasts top rapper Pusha T and the popular dj and producer Flying Lotus.

While Del Rey was set to play the Holy Land in 2014, she cancelled the show due to security concerns related to Operation Protective Edge, during which Israel was forced to address the security threat posed by the Hamas terror group in the Gaza Strip.

Del Rey’s performance will be part of the Meteor Festival, a three-day Woodstock-like party on a kibbutz called Lehavot Habashan in northern Israel.

The fest includes an eclectic lineup of hip hop, dance, and jazz, with Del Rey expected to perform her smash hits “Summertime Sadness” and “Young and Beautiful.”

The announcement of Del Rey’s gig may bring solace to Israeli music-lovers, who missed out on concerts by rappers Tyga and Fat Joe, both of whom canceled shows in Israel due to “security concerns.”

While Fat Joe led a rap group called the “Terror Squad” in the late nineties and aughts, his apparent fear of facing actual terror was enough to keep him from performing in the Holy Land.

Whether or not Del Rey will face pressure to cancel her gig from the anti-Israel boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) movement remains to be seen. In the past, BDS mouthpiece Roger Waters has aggressively targeted musicians scheduled to play in Israel with public shaming and less than honest rhetoric.

Artists such as Radiohead, Ringo Starr, and Morrissey, among others, all ignored Waters’ tactics and rejected the BDS movement.

Despite Qatar’s attempts to politicize a major debate tournament and its refusal to engage with students from Israel, two Israeli teams topped the European Universities Debating Championship in Serbia.
If there were a prize for epic boycott fails, Qatar would win it. The Qatari debate team tried to boycott Israel, but ended up getting BDS banned from European debates.
Ultimately, two Israeli teams topped the European Universities Debating Championship in Serbia, in which a total of 187 teams from 30 countries within and surrounding Europe were competing against each other.

Canadian TV Erroneously Claims Israel Destroyed Gaza ‘Cultural Center,’ Actually a Hamas HQ
https://unitedwithisrael.org/canadian-tv-wrongly-claims-israel-destroyed-gaza-cultural-center-actually-a-hamas-hq/?
HonestReporting called on CTV National News to “issue an on-air corrective to remedy the erroneous and misleading statement it broadcast” that Israel destroyed a Gaza cultural center, when in fact the IAF conducted a strike against Hamas’ headquarters.

By: United with Israel Staff

HonestReporting Canada (HRC) filed a complaint with the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council (CBSC) on Friday after CTV National News aired a report which incorrectly claimed that Israel destroyed a Gaza cultural center, when in fact Israel’s Air Force (IAF) conducted a strike against Hamas headquarters used for military and terror purposes.

Anchor Lisa Laflamme on Thursday falsely and unfairly stated that “Israeli aircraft bombed more than 150 targets in Gaza, flattening a major cultural center and leaving three people dead.”

The facts are that Israel’s citizens in the south experienced a nightmarish evening on  Wednesday and on Thursday when Hamas terrorists fired over 180 rockets at them, repeatedly setting off Code Red alerts that sent them running for cover.

The Iron Dome defense system intercepted 30 rockets, while several of the explosive projectiles fell inside Israeli towns, causing injuries, some of them serious, and extensive damage.

The IAF responded by attacking over 150 Hamas terror targets throughout the Strip, including a cement factory used by Hamas to build terror tunnels, a maritime terror tunnel shaft, a weapons manufacturing and storage facility, and several terror sites in military compounds, as well as the five-story Said al-Mishal Cultural Center in Shati, which has served as the headquarters for Hamas’ internal security forces.

Hamas’s interior security unit is responsible for all security operations carried out inside Gaza and is considered to be an executive branch of Hamas’s political leadership. A significant part of the unit’s members are also Hamas terrorists, the IDF stated.

On behalf of its 30,000 subscribers, HRC called on CTV National News to “issue an on-air corrective to remedy the erroneous and misleading statement it broadcast.”

“At the very least, CTV News has an obligation to its viewers to mention that Israel regards the building as being Hamas’ headquarters whose forces use it for military and terrorist purposes. Failing which, viewers will be left to wrongly conclude that Israel targeted a civilian building used to promote culture,” HRC noted. “To some viewers, they may falsely conclude that Israel committed a war crime and had collectively punished innocent Palestinians in Gaza.”

Israel is repeatedly faced with biased reporting by the international media and is often forced to fight for the truth.

The terms of an emerging agreement between Israel and Hamas include a year-long cease-fire, operation of a shipping route between Cyprus and the Gaza Strip, and Qatari funding for fuel in the impoverished enclave, the Hezbollah-affiliated Lebanese network Al Mayadeen reported on Thursday.

The deal would also entail Qatari payment of Hamas officials' salaries.

The 48 hours between Thursday and Saturday will be decisive for the potential deal's success or failure, according to the network.

Also Thursday, U.K.-based newspaper Al-Hayat reported that the head of Egypt's General Intelligence Directorate had visited Tel Aviv the previous day to discuss efforts to clinch a long-term cease-fire deal between Israel and Hamas.

According to Palestinian sources quoted in the report, Maj. Gen. Abbas Kamel was in Tel Aviv to "discuss the final details of an integrated agreement that included Israel's approval of the truce," as well as plans for humanitarian initiatives in Gaza, indirect negotiations with Hamas for exchanging prisoners and the Palestinian reconciliation.

Kamel was also expected to meet with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah during his visit, according to the report, as Cairo works to involve the PA in the talks and have it reassume control of the Strip.

However, a source in Abbas' bureau told Haaretz that there had yet to be a request by the Egyptians to arrange the arrival of Kamel. According to the source, the Egyptians demanded that a Fatah delegation arrive in Cairo to meet with leaders of other Palestinian factions, a demand Abbas has refused since the negotiated deal currently doesn't promise Palestinian Authority control over the Gaza Strip.

On Tuesday, officials from Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other Palestinian groups traveled to Egypt to continue talks about a potential Hamas-Fatah reconciliation and a long-term truce with Israel.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday a short-term truce went into effect, following approval by Israel's security cabinet.

During the entire Hebrew month of Elul, which leads up to the Jewish New Year, sephardic Jews observe the custom of reciting special penitential prayers very early in the morning. On Tuesday, congregants of the Ohel Moshe synagogue in Petach Tikva arrived before dawn and discovered a disturbing sight: a large swastika and lightning symbol of the German SS units sprayed on the façade of the building in black paint.
“Of course, a complaint was immediately filed with the police, with the hope that it would be dealt with seriously and expeditiously,” said Rami Greenberg, a city council member who exposed the criminal act on his Facebook page.

A hostel in Jerusalem’s Old City published a list of Jewish activists, journalists and celebrities who have been “banned because of crimes committed against the Jewish People.”

The Jerusalem Heritage House’s list, which refers to the people named as “sonei Yisrael” or “haters of Israel,” includes Jewish politicians like Bernie Sanders and Dianne Feinstein; advocacy groups like J Street and the Anti-Defamation League, “all staff” from the Times of Israel, Haaretz, CNN and The New York Times; and celebrities like Jon Stewart, Bette Midler and Natalie Portman.
The list was published on Twitter by Jacob Kornbluh of Jewish Insider.

The Heritage House, which says it has hosted more than 60,000 people since it opened in 1985, did not respond to a request for comment from The Jerusalem Post.

The hostel came under heavy scrutiny last year after Haaretz reported that a popular operator of Birthright trips run by the Orthodox Union had been referring participants to stay there for free in order to extend their 10-day trip.

While at the Heritage House, residents were encouraged to volunteer in illegal West Bank outposts. Residents also reported seeing pictures and books about Rabbi Meir Kahane, whose political party was banned in Israel for racism and whose Jewish Defense League was classified by the FBI as a terrorist group.

The trip provider quickly stopped promoting the hostel following the original report.

The Heritage House has also been threatened with a discrimination-related lawsuit for not accepting non-Jewish guests.

Trump Approves Largest-Ever Aid Package to Israel
The National Defense Authorization Act includes a bipartisan measure honoring an MOU between America and Israel, giving $3.8 billion annually to the Jewish state.
By: Jackson Richman/JNS and United with Israel Staff

US President Donald Trump signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) on Monday, which includes $550 million in assistance to Israel and temporarily halts the sale of F-35 fighter jets to Turkey. This comes amid tensions between Washington and Ankara, which is currently holding an American pastor hostage, among other political moves.

The $717 billion Act includes a bipartisan measure honoring a decade-long Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between America and Israel, with the US giving $3.8 billion annually to the Jewish state.

The NDAA, titled the “John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act for 2019,” authorizes funds for research and development pertaining to weapon-defense systems, including the Iron Dome, David’s Sling, Arrow 2 and Arrow 3 that help Israel defend against missile and rocket threats.

Additionally, the law provides $50 million for joint US-Israeli work on counter-tunnel technology, which has emerged as a major security threat to Israel in recent years from the Palestinian Gaza-based terror group Hamas.

Facing constant threats on its borders, Israel is forced to spend more on defense as a percentage of GDP than any other nation in the industrialized world.

The vast majority of the security assistance is spent purchasing American products, and therefore the aid is essentially an investment in the US economy.

The annual military blueprint also temporarily blocks the US delivery of the F-35 fighter jets to Turkey in response to the detention of American pastor Andrew Brunson, whom the country accuses of participating in the failed 2016 coup against President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

World Jewish Congress head Ronald Lauder in 2012.Daniel Bar-On
Lauder’s J’Accuse against Netanyahu’s Israel is also a mea culpa
U.S. Jewish leader Ronald Lauder gave $1.1 million to covert group pushing anti-Muslim campaign
Ron Lauder: No two-state solution, lack of religious pluralism could endanger Israel’s existence

 
WASHINGTON – Ronald Lauder, a prominent Jewish American philanthropist and supporter of Israel, is warning the Israeli government in a new article that the recently approved nation-state law will damage Israel's future relationship with the Jewish diaspora. Lauder wrote in The New York Times the law will weaken Israel, and urged the leaders of the country to "rethink their destructive actions." 

Lauder was considered for decades to be a close confidant of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who at some point even used him to conduct a secret negotiation with the president of Syria. He is the head of the World Jewish Congress, an international federation of Jewish groups from dozens of countries, and a prominent donor to various charities in Israel, as well as pro-Israeli groups in America. 

In his article on Monday, Lauder decried a number of recent decisions by the authorities in Israel, including the nation-state law, the passage of a surrogacy law that discriminates against the Israeli LGBT community, and the police interrogation of a non-Orthodox Rabbi in Haifa over his religious activities. "These events are creating the impression that the democratic and egalitarian dimensions of the Jewish democratic state are being tested," he wrote. 
>> Basic Law or basically a disaster? Israel’s nation-state law controversy explained

Lauder explained that "Israel may find itself associated with a broken values system and questionable friends. As a result, future leaders of the West may become hostile or indifferent to the Jewish state," adding it is becoming increasingly difficult for Jewish supporters of Israel in the U.S. and elsewhere to defend some of its actions, and that this could lead to a divide between the Jewish state and its Jewish supporters abroad.
Younger Jews worldwide are adopting more liberal positions on various issues, Lauder noted, of which many do not align with the Israeli policies he criticizes in the article.

"If present trends persist, young Jews might not acquiesce to an affiliation with a nation that discriminates against non-Orthodox Jews, non-Jewish minorities and the L.G.B.T. community," Lauder warned. "They may not fight the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions movement, they may not support Israel in Washington and they may not provide it with the strategic rear guard that Israel so needs."

Lauder stressed he "Always stood by Israel and I always will. But now, as a loving brother, I ask Israel’s government to listen to the voices of protest and outrage being heard in Israel and throughout the Jewish world. As president of the World Jewish Congress, I call upon Israeli leaders to rethink their destructive actions during this summer of disharmony."

Lauder concluded by saying "This is not who we are, and this is not who we wish to be. This is not the face we want to show our children, grandchildren and the family of nations."

This is the second time in recent months that Lauder has criticized the policies of the right-wing government in Israel in the New York Times. Earlier this year, he wrote a scathing article against Israel's settlements in the West Bank, warning that they threaten Israel's Jewish and Democratic nature and its ties with the Jewish American community. 

Lauder's relationship with Netanyahu has reportedly soured in recent years, but he still enjoys a friendly relationship with another influential leader on the world stage - U.S. President Donald Trump. The two billionaires have known each other for decades, and Lauder has reportedly advised Trump and the senior members of his Middle East peace team on how, in his view, they can make progress towards an Israeli-Palestinian agreement.

Despite ‘Ceasefire,’ Hamas Resumes Airborne Arson Attacks Against Israel
Aug 12, 2018

Hamas’ endless attacks on Israel continue despite its declared “ceasefire.”
By: The Tower
Despite a ceasefire announced by Hamas on Thursday, thousands of Gazans took part in Hamas-orchestrated riots along the Israeli-Gaza border on Friday, hurling rocks, burning tires, and sending incendiary terror-kites into Israel, The Times of Israel reported.

The army said around 5,000 people had amassed at the border, and that at least six fires had broken out in Israeli territory since the morning due to airborne arson attacks.

The terror group’s spokesman, Hazem Qassim, tweeted that rioters would continue to “break the siege” on the Gaza Strip. “Every time the Israeli killing machine attempts to break our people’s will to continue its struggle and marches, it fails to do so,” he wrote. “Today our people will head to the ‘Marches of Return’ to challenge the Israeli war machine.”

“Our Palestinian people has a long-lasting, struggling soul,” the Hamas spokesperson added. “It will continue its resistance in all of its forms until it gains its freedom, independence and right to a dignified life.”

Hamas had earlier announced that the so-called “March of Return” border riots would continue unimpeded, despite a ceasefire negotiated by Egypt, following two days that saw the heaviest exchange of Palestinian rocket fire and reprisal Israeli airstrikes since Operation Protective Edge in 2014.

The terrorist group, which exercises complete political and military control over the coastal enclave, said a ceasefire had been reached “on the basis of mutual calm” and went into effect at midnight. Israel, however, denied that it had agreed to a truce, but clarified that “quiet would be met with quiet.”

There were no instances of violence reported along the border overnight.

Since the so-called “March of Return” was launched by Hamas in March, there have been near-weekly, violent riots along the Israel-Gaza border organized by the terrorist group, which saw Israeli security forces facing gunfire, grenades, Molotov cocktails, and efforts to illegally infiltrate into Israeli territory to carry out terrorist attacks. Hamas also sent women and children to the front line to use them as human shields.

At least 160 Palestinians have been killed as a result of the rioting, and one Israeli soldier was shot dead by a Palestinian sniper. In addition to clashes at the border, southern Israel has experienced hundreds of fires caused by incendiary terror kites and balloons flown over the border from Gaza

Jerusalem mayor slams European leaders for letting terrorism win
By Avi Abelow - August 9, 2018 242 0

Western European leaders have been leading their countries to doom and destruction. Turning a blind eye to terror, actively and passively funding terror against Israel, and opening up their borders to millions of Muslims. That is a deadly combination.

Jerusalem Mayor Barkat sends a message to European leaders
WATCH https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqPAngdIgC0

Nir Barkat is the Mayor of Jerusalem. He is looking to end his very successful run as Jerusalem Mayor and go national. He has joined Netanyahu’s Likud party. Many look upon him as a Bibi type politician. A secular Zionist, with a strong Jewish identity. Also similar to Bibi, he is personally successful from the private sector and left his very successful business life in order to serve the public good in politics.

Netanyahu Quotes
In this video, Barkat quotes a very powerful line from Netanyahu.
“Terror is global, it is not local. If you don’t fight it here when it is small, it will catch up to you wherever you are in Europe and the rest of the world.”
Then Barkat adds his own addition. “There is only one way to deal with terror. Fight it. Defeat it. Together.”
Those sentiments say it all.

Europe Turns a Blind Eye to Israel
Western European leaders prefer to look at the Palestinian Authority and Hamas terror against Israel as a legitimate struggle against Israel. Israel, however, sees it very differently. Their terror campaign against Israel is part of the global Islamic terror against Western civilization today.

Case in point, when Western leaders are silent about the terror used against Israel, those same terror tactics then are used in other countries in the Western world.

If they don’t want Islamic terror to happen in their countries then they must stand shoulder to shoulder with Israel and give Isreal 110% support to defeat the Islamic terror against us.

That is the only way for other countries to protect their countries as well from the growing, global Islamic terror.

A senior Israeli commander said Thursday morning that the military is nearing launching an operation in the Gaza Strip, not ruling out evacuating communities near the border as the fighting continues.

"We are after another night of escalation, and at this stage we don't see it ending," the officer said.

Referring to negotiations between Hamas and Israel, being mediated by Egypt, the officer said that Hamas "chose to stay away from a deal and it will pay the price for its violations in the last four months." The officer warned Hamas of "suffering a severe blow" if it continues firing rockets.

Israel will continue striking Gaza, the officer said, noting that reinforcements are being sent to southern Israel. "The military is preparing to evacuate civilians located up to four kilometers from the border, even at the first stage of a wider campaign."


The officer added that as of right now, reserve soldiers from air defense units were called up, but the military is preparing to call up more reservists if needed. "Hamas must go back to the understandings after the [2014 Gaza war], and if it doesn't, it will understand the hard way. Part of the things it was dreaming of are getting farther and farther away."

The officer warned Hamas that Israel will continue its strikes in the Gaza Strip.

Meanwhile, Hamas on Thursday blamed the latest round of violence on Israel killing two Hamas militants on Tuesday. "Israel says it does not seek an escalation but in practice causing it," sources said. The Israeli military believes that the incident was a misunderstanding, after Israeli troops mistakenly thought that gunfire during a military demonstration in the Strip was aimed at them.


Hamas spokesman Abed Lateef Kano warned Thursday morning that Israel's attacks will not be tolerated: "The resistance forces are doing what they have to do as part of protecting the Palestinian people from Israeli aggression," he said. "The brutal Israeli attack and the targeting of civilians will not be tolerated quietly, and the occupation will pay the price and will not be successful in dictating a new equation," he added.

Over 180 rockets were launched at Israel on Wednesday evening and overnight Thursday. A woman sustained serious wounds on Thursday at the Eshkol Regional Council, and another man was lightly wounded. On Wednesday, nine people were wounded, including one moderately, and 13 others suffered shock.

In Gaza, Palestinians reported three people were killed, including a pregnant woman and a toddler.

When you thought it couldn’t get any worse for UK Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, another one of his anti-Israel interviews from Iran’s PressTV emerges.
Another instance of hostility exhibited by Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn towards Israel was exposed on Tuesday in the form of an interview he gave to Iranian TV, in which he appears to question Israel’s right to exist.
Speaking to Iran’s PressTV in May 2011, Corbyn said he considers the BBC to be biased in favor of Israel because they are willing to say Israel has a right to exist.
The fact that this man is leading the UK Labour party is astounding.

Terror Training Camp
This is a real thing. The visuals in this video are real. Gaza children to go Hamas terror summer camps to learn how to kill Jews. This is horrendous on so many levels.

First of all, they are focused on killing, killing and more killing.

Second, they are training children to kill. Children!

Third, these children are being deprived of a normal childhood. Normal children grow up and learn how to be happy children, and learn how to enjoy life. These kids learn to focus on death, murder and a fake belief in “martyrdom” via murder of innocent Jews.

Again, these are children. Not 18 year olds conscripting to a military service. Children!

Palestinians
No, there is no such thing as a historic people called “palestinians”. We disagree with official Israeli institutions using this term and we can’t wait until official Israel also stops using this false term.

Before the State of Israel, everyone called Jews, Christians and Muslims palestinians if they lived in the Holy Land. It is the name of a geographic area that the Romans created to replace the historic name “Judea.” Jewsborn in the British Mandate of Palestine had passports that said “Palestinian Jews” on them. There is NO such thing as a historic Arab/Muslim people called “palestinians” with national rights to this land.

It’s a scene that should make liberals ashamed.
When Hamas terrorists launched a fresh barrage of rocket attacks against Israel from Gaza this week, they once again proved just how wrong-headed liberal support for the Palestinian cause against Israel really is – and the savage depths terrorists are willing to go.
A short video clip being circulated on Twitter by Townhall Editor Katie Pavich conveys the terror Hamas is inflicting with chilling clarity:

Video from Israel today. It shows dozens of children desperately trying to get into a bomb shelter in 5-15 secs as Hamas launches rockets from Gaza. One lands in the street right next to them. Two ppl are hurt. Where is the outrage for this attempted murder of civilians?

“Video from Israel today,” Pavich wrote in the Wednesday post. “It shows dozens of children desperately trying to get into a bomb shelter in 5-15 secs as Hamas launches rockets from Gaza. One lands in the street right next to them. Two ppl are hurt. Where is the outrage for this attempted murder of civilians?”

That’s an excellent question.
Because the outrage among liberals and the Western media in the coming days is likely to be directed against Israel for how it retaliates. Don’t expect a lot of denunciation of the savages who have no problem shooting rockets at cities hoping to kill Jewish children.
If a scene like this involved Americans on American soil – whether it was New York City, Miami, Minneapolis or Los Angeles – there’s no doubt the United States would be striking back against the attackers.
And Israel is doing the same. As the Times of Israel reported:
“Following the rocket launches, the Israeli air force struck more than 140 military targets across 20 sites in Gaza, including a factory for manufacturing facilities, training complexes, a maritime tunnel shaft, and other sites, according to the IDF.”

Fortunately, with President Donald Trump in the White House and Ambassador Nikki Haley at the United Nations, the United States is leaving little doubt that it is firmly on Israel’s side in the conflict.
In a Twitter post, U.S. Middle East Envoy Jason Greenblatt put the blame squarely on the terrorists.
“Another night of terror & families huddling in fear as Israel defends itself,” he wrote. “This is the Hamas regime’s choice. Hamas is subjecting people to the terrifying conditions of war again.”

It’s a refreshingly honest take on a topic that is too often obscured by the mainstream media, which tries to portray Palestinians breaching Israeli national borders like some latter day incarnation of Martin Luther King Jr.’s marchers crossing the Edmund Pettus Bridge.

“This is the Hamas regime’s choice,” Greenblatt wrote, describing the men who have no problem launching attacks that send women and children running frantically for bomb shelters, trying to reach them in the seconds they have before a rocket hits.

But for the American left, like current media “It” girl Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, it’s the Israelis who are to blame for the violence.

Videos like the one Pavich posted Wednesday aren’t going to change the left, they’ve had decades to learn what side in the Israeli-Palestinian fight stands for civilization and what side stands for barbarousness.

But still, it’s a scene that should make liberals ashamed.

Pregnant woman, toddler in Gaza reportedly killed in Israeli strikes
The Israeli military said Thursday that it struck 180 targets in Gaza in retaliation to a massive barrage of rockets that was fired at Israel since Wednesday evening. Some 180 rockets were fired at Israel, the military said, with over 30 rockets intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system. Most of the rockets exploded in open areas.

Palestinian factions in Gaza declared Thursday that they consider the latest round of violence between Israel and Gaza over, saying that maintaining the peace now depends on Israel. After the statement was released, however, a rocket was fired at the city of Be'er Sheva, located some 40 kilometers from the Strip. This was the first time rockets were fired at the city since the 2014 Gaza war.

Hours later, the IDF renewed its attacks on Gaza. A 5-story building was destroyed, and the Palestinians reported 18 people wounded. The IDF said the building was used by Hamas security forces and was located in the Rimal neighborhood in the northern part of the Strip. Palestinian sources reported that the building was the Said al-Mashal cultural center in the al-Shati refugee camp in northwestern Gaza.


A source in the refugee camp said that the building is located near the house of senior Hamas political leader Ismail Haniyeh, who is from this camp. A resident of the al-Shati refugee camp, where the building is located, told Haaretz that "the attacked building is an art and culture center which has no political or security use. The building also serves the Egyptian community that lives in Gaza. There is no reason to target this building other than harming a Palestinian cultural symbol."

The house in Gaza hit by an Israeli strike which killed a pregnant woman and toddler.
The military started striking in the Strip overnight Wednesday after six rockets were fired from Gaza, landing in the southern Israeli town of Sderot and wounding 11 people. Eight people were admitted to the Soroka hospital in Be'er Sheva and seven in Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon; a woman was in serious condition, and 13 others were treated for shock trauma.

Gaza's Health Ministry reported Thursday that three Palestinians were killed by the Israeli attacks, including a pregnant woman, 23, her 18-month-old toddler and a man, who was identified as 30-year-old Ali Alrandur. He is the son of one of the commanders of Hamas' armed wing, Iz al-Din al-Qassam. Six other people were wounded by the strikes.


"We don't see the end of the escalation. We are nearing an operation in Gaza," a senior IDF official said Thursday, not ruling out the evacuation of Israeli civilians if the conflict continues.

"The way things continue to play out is significant. Hamas will understand in the coming hours, as in the past months, that this is not the direction it wants to choose," the military said in a tweet.

The sites in Gaza targeted by the Israeli military included a military compound east of Rafah and attack tunnels belonging to Hamas, the army said.

Hamas spokesman Abed Lateef Kano warned Thursday morning that Israel's attacks will not be tolerated: "The resistance forces are doing what they have to do as part of protecting the Palestinian people from Israeli aggression," he said. "The brutal Israeli attack and the targeting of civilians will not be tolerated quietly, and the occupation will pay the price and will not be successful in dictating a new equation," he added.

The army said Thursday it struck a terrorist group that launched rockets from the southern part of the Strip. The Israeli army started backing up its aerial defense units, and began deploying more Iron Dome missile defense batteries in the south to prepare for a scenario in which Gaza rockets could reach deeper into Israeli territory.

Alistair Burt's Tweet on Gaza, August 9, 2018.
"This is the Hamas regime's choice. Hamas is subjecting people to the terrifying conditions of war again," he added.

British Minister for the Middle East Alistair Burt expressed concern over the "deteriorating situation in Gaza/Israel and civilian casualties." In particular, he was worreid over reports of death of pregnant woman and child." Burt added that "Hamas must end attacks against Israel. Support UN/Egypt efforts to restore calm and agree ceasefire. Escalation is in no-one’s interest."

The United Nations' Middle East envoy, Nikolay Mladenov, released a statement late Wednesday night concerning the escalation between Israel and Gaza. "I am deeply alarmed by the recent escalation, particularly by today's multiple rockets fired towards communities in southern Israel," he wrote.

"For months I have been warning that the humanitarian, security and political crisis in Gaza risks a devastating conflict that nobody wants. The UN has engaged with Egypt and all concerned parties in an unprecedented effort to avoid such a development," Mladenov continued.

"Our collective efforts have prevented the situation from exploding until now. If the current escalation, however, is not contained immediately, the situation can rapidly deteriorate with devastating consequences for all people," he warned.

Sderot Mayor Alon Davidi said that rescue services had been sent to homes "to check whether there are more shock victims" as a result of the rocket fire. "I recommend that everyone remain near protected spaces," Davidi said. "We are in constant contact with the army and security forces."

Opposition blasts Netanyahu government

Opposition lawmakers blasted Netanyahu's government for failing to achieve a lasting truce in Egyptian-mediated ceasefire talks with Hamas.

"Netanyahu and Lieberman! You have failed!" Labor Party leader Avi Gabbay tweeted. "Is this the way to hold a negotiation? Our hearts are with the residents of the Gaza border region and we support the IDF in its mission of restoring security to residents of the area."

Opposition leader MK Tzipi Livni said that "this government has weakened the moderates and strengthened the radicals, four years of wasting time." She continued, saying: "This government prefers a Hamastan near the residents of the south. The 'let the IDF win' motto clearly doesn't work without complementary policy."

The developments came a day after the Israeli military fired at a Hamas facility in northern Gaza in response to fire from the Strip aimed at Israeli security forces. The tank fire killed two members of the Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades' al-Nukhba elite unit and wounded six others, reports in Gaza said. The al-Qassam Brigades is the military wing of Hamas.

According to the IDF, the incident occurred due to a misunderstanding: The military believes that the shots that prompted an Israeli response were not deliberately aimed at IDF soldiers, but were part of a ceremony of the al-Qassam Brigades.

An IDF engineering corps force was operating in the area when the shots fired from Gaza were heard. The IDF thought it was an attempted sniper attack, and it was decided to fire a tank shell at the position in response.

An initial investigation has found, however, that the shooting took place two kilometers away from where the soldiers were operating. At this stage, it remains unclear whether the IDF knew of the ceremony, during which weapons were being fired. The assessment is that if any information had been received earlier about the event, senior IDF officers would not have approved the tank fire.

Nevertheless, the security establishment assesses that Hamas is still interested in reaching a cease-fire agreement with Israel, but that the organization faces a dilemma. While Hamas works toward signing a deal, the organization must keep responding to incidents in such a way as to show it has not shifted its policy toward Israel. At the same time, Hamas is trying to strengthen its links with other groups in Gaza – such as Islamic Jihad – to restore control and muster support behind any deal that may be reached.

A Hamas official told the Turkish state news agency Anadolu on Wednesday that the two parties are expected to sign an agreement by the end of August. The source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said the first stage of the deal would include a two-week trial. The deal would lift restrictions on the entry of goods into the Gaza Strip and at the Rafah border crossing between Egypt and the coastal enclave.

The Syrian flag is again fluttering on the ground zero, a triangle of Syrian territory slicing between Jordan and the Israeli Golan Heights with the Syrian army taking full control of the Yarmouk Basin in southwestern Syria after routing Islamic State militants.

This triangle is located in the far western countryside of Syria's southern province of Daraa, the birthplace of the Syrian war, which was recently recaptured by the Syrian army.

It is a high ground with a Syrian flag raised at its entrance and the Syrian soldiers seen standing guard looking both ways to Jordan and the Israeli territories. Turning right, an Israeli observatory is spotted from a distance on the Golan Heights; looking the other side, the Jordanian territories are seen.


During the crisis, the Syrian army almost lost all border points, except for a crossing with Lebanon. The Syrian government has repeatedly charged that weapons, munition, and fighters were being smuggled into the country from the loose border points that had fallen to the rebels.

Syrian army secures borderline with Jordan, Israeli Golan Heights
During a wide-scale campaign that started in late June in Daraa and nearby rebel-held areas, the Syrian government forces have succeeded in restoring all border points with Jordan and were also deployed along the separation line with the Israeli Golan Heights.

The Golan Heights is a basaltic plateau spanning about 1,800 sq km captured by Israel during the 1967 Six-Day War.

This achievement is considered as an important victory for the Syrian army and a key step toward ending the Syrian war, as when the borders are controlled, the country becomes safer.

Capturing the borders also indicates that the Syrian army is gaining the upper hand in the Syrian war, after almost securing the southern region safe except for a few pockets controlled by the ISIS in the eastern countryside of Sweida province.


One week after capturing the Yarmouk Basin, the Syrian soldiers could temporarily have a rest while talking and drinking tea near a dam bordering Jordan before going to other battlefields. Also near the dam, a villager talked about his scary life under the ISIS control.

"We have lived a frightening life in the past three years under the ISIS control. They robbed our house and furniture but did not give us money. When the Syrian army bombarded here, we escaped to the valley. Soldiers came over telling us not to escape because this area is under their control and there are no ISIS militants. We felt better," said Salem Alhael, a local resident.

Local villagers felt a little bit relieved after being freed from a long-time frightening ISIS control, but they still have to struggle for a living as there has been no enough daily necessities and electricity for several years, according to Alhael.

"Now what we need most is water. We have to drink. We have nothing but some food brought by the Syrian army. But we still need biscuits and water. We have been without electricity for seven years as electric wires and utility poles have been damaged and telephone lines have been also cut off. We lived in dark at night," he said.


Now, the Syrian army is fighting the ISIS in the desert region in the eastern countryside of Sweida, making progress in the fight against the remaining ISIS pockets there.

The liberation of the Sweida desert will be the declaration of the entire liberation of the southwestern part of Syria, an achievement that would be the latest after the army has captured almost two-thirds of the country.

Israel strikes 140 Gaza targets in response to 150 Hamas rockets (VIDEO)
An explosion during an Israeli air strike on Gaza, August 8, 2018 ©️ Reuters
The IDF has conducted another series of air strikes against at least 20 alleged Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip, after the militant group fired over 150 projectiles into southern Israel.
“IDF fighter jets targeted over 20 terror sites in military compounds and in a Hamas training camp. Among the sites targeted were a weapons manufacturing and storage facility, a complex used for the Hamas naval force and a military compound used for rocket-launching experiments,” the IDF said Thursday morning.

A pregnant woman and her toddler were among three people killed by Israeli fire, the Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed. The victims – identified as Enas Khammash, 23, and her 18-month-old daughter Bayan – were killed in the Jafarawi area of central Gaza, according to AFP.


The Israeli military said it was forced to respond to an ongoing barrage of missile fire coming from the Gaza strip. Throughout the course of Wednesday and early hours of Thursday morning, Hamas fired over 150 projectiles into southern Israel, forcing the IDF to initially conduct 12 raids on the Palestinian enclave. More raids were then ordered after Hamas failed to stop their belligerent activity.

A senior Israeli commander said Thursday morning that the military is nearing launching an operation in the Gaza Strip, not ruling out evacuating communities near the border as the fighting continues.

"We are after another night of escalation, and at this stage we don't see it ending," the officer said.

Referring to negotiations between Hamas and Israel, being mediated by Egypt, the officer said that Hamas "chose to stay away from a deal and it will pay the price for its violations in the last four months." The officer warned Hamas of "suffering a severe blow" if it continues firing rockets.

Israel will continue striking Gaza, the officer said, noting that reinforcements are being sent to southern Israel. "The military is preparing to evacuate civilians located up to four kilometers from the border, even at the first stage of a wider campaign."

The officer added that as of right now, reserve soldiers from air defense units were called up, but the military is preparing to call up more reservists if needed. "Hamas must go back to the understandings after the [2014 Gaza war], and if it doesn't, it will understand the hard way. Part of the things it was dreaming of are getting farther and farther away."

The officer warned Hamas that Israel will continue its strikes in the Gaza Strip.

Meanwhile, Hamas on Thursday blamed the latest round of violence on Israel killing two Hamas militants on Tuesday. "Israel says it does not seek an escalation but in practice causing it," sources said. The Israeli military believes that the incident was a misunderstanding, after Israeli troops mistakenly thought that gunfire during a military demonstration in the Strip was aimed at them.


Hamas spokesman Abed Lateef Kano warned Thursday morning that Israel's attacks will not be tolerated: "The resistance forces are doing what they have to do as part of protecting the Palestinian people from Israeli aggression," he said. "The brutal Israeli attack and the targeting of civilians will not be tolerated quietly, and the occupation will pay the price and will not be successful in dictating a new equation," he added.

Over 180 rockets were launched at Israel on Wednesday evening and overnight Thursday. A woman sustained serious wounds on Thursday at the Eshkol Regional Council, and another man was lightly wounded. On Wednesday, nine people were wounded, including one moderately, and 13 others suffered shock.
In Gaza, Palestinians reported three people were killed, including a pregnant woman and a toddler.

Palestinian Accused of ‘Normalization’ After Interview on Israeli TV

Talking to the Israeli media is a grievous offense in Palestinian society, as Ibrahim al-Madhoun’s case shows.

By: United with Israel Staff

A Palestinian political analyst who was recently interviewed on an Israeli TV channel was forced to apologize after angry Palestinians accused him of the crime of “normalization” with Israelis.

Ibrahim al-Madhoun, a political analyst and director of the Youth Media Center, Hamas’ media wing, appeared on Israel’s i24 News in a Skype interview last month about the situation of the so-called Palestinian refugees.

His appearance elicited a wave of negative reactions among Palestinians on social media who viewed the interview as “media normalization,” meaning establishing a dialogue between Palestinians and Israelis through the media,” Al monitor reported.

Madhoun’s interview violated a 2012 decision by Hamas Palestinians from working with the “hostile” Israeli media.

While Madhoun spoke about the United Nations Relief and Works Agency’s (UNRWA) financial crisis and its negative repercussions for the so-called Palestinian refugees, this pro-Palestinian content was not enough to shield him from criticism.

Hadi al-Ijla, a Palestinian political researcher at the Institute for Middle East Studies in Canada, took to Facebook to criticize Madhoun’s appearance, stressing that refusing to engage with Israeli media is part of “Palestinian resistance against the occupation.”

Independent journalist Mohammed Jaser wrote on Facebook, “Your appearance on an Israeli channel will not change the conviction of the Israeli settlers. You are just a terrorist to them even if you are peaceful!”

‘Give the Palestinian Audience What They Want’
Madhoun apologized a day after the interview.

“I only wanted to introduce Israeli society to a Palestinian narrative and a message of resistance from the streets to influence Israeli viewers, alter their convictions and shake their domestic front,” he wrote. “I formally apologize to Palestine’s youth, media and every citizen for my misjudgment of the situation.”

Madhoun told Al-Monitor that “now that I have apologized, I will not appear on an Israeli channel. i24News contacted me for another appearance, but I declined. I have decided to give the Palestinian audience what they want.”

Salameh Maarouf, head of the Hamas government’s media office in Gaza City, told Al-Monitor that Hamas believes there is no point in having a dialogue with the Israeli public or dealing with its media. Hamas sees “media normalization as recognition of the legitimacy of the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories,” he said.

“Media normalization” with Israel is not limited to Israeli media interviewing Palestinians, but also includes Palestinian media interviews with Israelis, Al-Monitor noted.

An interview by Palestinian newspaper Al-Quds with Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman in October 2016 also sparked an angry reaction among Palestinians. The piece was later removed from the paper’s website.

Nashat al-Aqtash, a professor of journalism and public relations at Birzeit University in Ramallah, told Al-Monitor that leaving the decision about whether to talk to Israeli media to individuals is “unacceptable normalization with Israel.”

However, he would not oppose having “professional media experts who speak with the Israeli media in order to make a real breakthrough with the Israeli public, by conveying the Palestinian narrative.”

However, such professionals do not exist yet, in his opinion.

Is Israel Using Earthquakes in a Holy Battle Against Islam?
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz July 30, 2018 , 4:00 pm
Here stand I and the children Hashem has given me as signs and portents in Yisrael from the LORD of Hosts, who dwells on Mount Tzion. Isaiah 8:18 (The Israel Bible™️)

Several rabbis are pointing to last week’s rare lunar eclipse and continued earthquakes as a divine pre-Messianic wake-up call. In fact, it isn’t only the rabbis. Even Arab sources are labeling the recent earthquakes as part of the end-of-days conflict centered around Jerusalem.

On Friday, Israel witnessed two natural phenomena: a 4.2 magnitude earthquake struck the northern Kinneret area at noon and as the sun set, a total lunar eclipse hung overhead, turning the moon deep crimson. The eclipse was remarkably rare: the longest lunar eclipse seen over the skies of Israel in more than a century.

The earthquake was remarkable, but not for its rarity. It was the second of the week and the most recent in a series that has shaken northern Israel in the past several weeks. On a practical level, this is alarming since Israel is situated along the Syrian-African rift, a tear in the earth’s crust running the length of the border separating Israel from Jordan, extending from northern Syria to Mozambique.The last major earthquake in Israel struck in 1927, a 6.2-magnitude tremor that killed 500 people and injured another 700. Experts have warned a large earthquake could strike Israel in the near future, and the government has begun funding projects for public buildings to be bolstered against tremors.

If the recent wave of earthquakes are a sign of things to come, it may have Messianic meaning. Massive earthquakes in Israel are prophesied to accompany the multinational Gog and Magog conflict that will signal the end of times.

On that day, when Gog sets foot on the soil of Yisrael—declares Hashem—My raging anger shall flare up.For I have decreed in My indignation and in My blazing wrath: On that day, a terrible earthquake shall befall the land of Yisrael. The fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, the beasts of the field, all creeping things that move on the ground, and every human being on earth shall quake before Me. Mountains shall be overthrown, cliffs shall topple, and every wall shall crumble to the ground. Ezekiel 38:18-20

Rabbi Haim Shvili, a 20th-century Jewish mystic,described precisely how these earthquakes will play out. In “Cheshbonot HaGeula” (Accountings of the Redemption), Rabbi Shvili’s book of predictions concerning the Messiah published in 1935, he assessed that these earthquakes will come during the holiday of Sukkot, coinciding with the War of Gog and Magog. Rabbi Shvili noted that the seismic activity will specifically target Muslim and Christian sites, destroying pagan temples and monuments to foreign gods throughout Israel.

Surprisingly, the Arabs also seem to believe that the current earthquakes are a part of an imminent conflict between Israel and its enemies in manner identical to that described by Rabbi Shvili. Maal Zakarna, a columnist for Jordan’s Ad-Dustour daily newspaper, recently wrote about the earthquakes in Israel, blaming them on the IDF.

“It could be that they were caused by experimental explosions carried out by the Israeli occupation’s army at a certain depth under the Kinneret,” he wrote. The IDF’s goal, according to Zakarna was to perpetrate “a major criminal action against sites in occupied Jerusalem which are holy to Islam and Christianity, and especially against the Al-Aqsa mosque, Dome of the Rock, and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre…[to] create a pre-planned earthquake to destroy them in preparation for creating a Holy Temple in the attempt to Judaize Jerusalem.”

Rabbi Yosef Berger, the Rabbi of King David’s Tomb on Mount Zion, feels that signs the Messiah is imminent are so prevalent they cannot be ignored.

“It is impossible to say specifically what is the meaning of heavenly signs but it is absurd to ignore the signs when they are clearly happening, and happening in a most unusual manner,” Rabbi Berger told Breaking Israel News. “In addition to the earthquakes and the lunar eclipse, a huge stone fell from the Western Wall on the day after the Tisha B’Av fast,” Berger said. “God put the sun and the moon in the heavens as signs, for us to pay attention to. With all these signs coming together, how can you not pay heed?”

Hashem said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate day from night; they shall serve as signs for the set times—the days and the years; Genesis 1:14

Rabbi Berger pointed out that there was skepticism toward the many predictions made about the total solar eclipse that traversed the continental United States last summer. Nonetheless, the predictions proved accurate when, directly after the eclipse, the U.S. was struck by a series of catastrophic hurricanes, conforming precisely to the dire predictions.

Berger speculated about the implications of last week’s lunar eclipse.

“A lunar eclipse is specifically mentioned in the Talmud as a bad omen for Israel,” he said. “Israel has omens but can transcend them through our connection to Torah and mitzvot (Torah commandments).”

The rabbi cited the Book of Jeremiah to illustrate his point.
