Israeli fighter jets have carried out an airstrike near the town of Masyaf in the province of Hama in western Syria on Sunday, state-run SANA news agency reports.
There were no casualties as a result of the air raid, “with the aggression causing only material damage,” the agency reported.

The Lebanese Al Mayadeen channel reported that Israeli planes fired missiles from Lebanon’s airspace, targeting a scientific facility. Reports on Twitter said the attack was aimed at a Syrian military facility.

Earlier in July, Syria blamed Israel of attacking its T-4 airbase in Homs Province. The base’s air defenses have intercepted several missiles and hit one of the Israeli aircraft, the state media reported. It’s the second time this year the T-4 airfield was targeted by Israeli air force as a raid in April killed several Syrian troops and Iranian military advisors stationed at the facility

In recent months, Israel has been frequently carrying out missiles strikes in Syria due to concerns that its main geopolitical rival, Iran, which is helping the government in Damascus to fight terrorists, may use the Syrian territory as a foothold to attack the Jewish state.

Body Language Expert Shreds Media’s Entire ‘Putin Was in Charge’ Narrative
https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/body-language-expert-shreds-medias-entire-putin-was-in-charge-narrative/?

Was Vladimir Putin the one in charge at Monday’s press conference with President Donald Trump at their Monday summit in Helsinki? Many people would say yes. But one body language expert says that may not have been the case.


Regarding the opening press conference between the two leaders, the U.K. Express reached out to someone to read the tea leaves (so to speak) in Trump and Putin’s posture — and it’s something that’s going to have a lot of Democrats furious.


“Judi James, author and body language expert, told Express.co.uk the duo are not as friendly as the warm words from Trump would have you believe,” the paper reported.


“If the May/Trump summit looked chilly, this Trump/Putin meeting looked buried under a thick layer of perma-frost,” James said.


“Both men arrived performing the kind of alpha posturing you normally see in a boxing ring, swaggering with puffed chests and in Trump’s case a mouth clamp plus what was bordering on a scowl to camera as both pulled at their jackets in what is commonly a ‘prepare to fight’ ritual,” James said.

“In the room for the photo-call though they looked more like a sullen, divorcing couple at crisis counseling.


“Putin was especially sphinx-like, returning little of the sparse eye contact he received from Trump and maintaining a poker face even after Trump’s ‘soccer’ flattery was being translated for him,” she added.


“Trump sat in his usual ‘Trump Slump’ pose with his legs splayed and his fingers in ‘downward steeple’ position to register macho dominance but this time his fingertips tapped together throughout which is a sign of impatience.


“Putin adopted a more elegant power pose, sitting upright with one elbow on the arm of the chair but as Trump spoke Putin’s other hands clasped the lower strut of the chair arm as though irritation could have been making him keen to go.

Trump, she said, “also performed some impatience rituals like scratching up his cuff and finger-fiddling.


“Trump instigated the handshake at the end and it was performed from their seats with a long distance arm-stretch and no patting or prolonging additions to give any clues away about their feelings.


James said that both men “looked annoyed.”


“When they last met their body language was cool and slightly awkward, but in dramatic fashion Putin leaned right out of his chair to whisper and chat to Trump with a smile on his face once the cameras were finished to signal a more off-screen friendship bond,” James said.


“This time the two men sat rigid in their seats with absolutely no eye contact or communication when the lights were turned off.


“This could be a ploy. It could be about pre-meeting posturing and the men could emerge showing friendship signals suggesting they’d each fought hard before allowing themselves to bond.”


But, she said, “if they do emerge in the same frosty style it could imply it might have been better had this meeting never happened.”


Of course, James’ opinions on the press conference to follow weren’t included. That’s the one that most of the media has gone apoplectic over. However, at least when it came to the first round, it looks like it may not have been Putin who was in control — at least if you believe this expert’s years of experience.

IDF Steps Up Action in Response to Rockets and Fire Terror from Gaza
https://unitedwithisrael.org/idf-steps-up-action-responding-to-rockets-and-fire-terror-from-gaza
The IDF was given new orders to deal with Gaza-based terrorists who have launched rockets at Israel’s south and ignited more than 1,000 fires, destroying more than 8,200 acres of forest and agricultural land.
By: United with Israel Staff 
The IDF on Sunday was given orders by the government to attack the arson terrorists directly rather than firing warning shots, as has been their conduct up until now.
The Israeli Air Force (IAF) in four instances attacked a squad that was launching arson balloons from the Gaza Strip into Israeli territory.
“The IDF is determined to continue to defend Israeli civilians and is prepared for a wide variety of scenarios, which may intensify according to the situation assessment and the operational requirements,” the IDF stated.
“The IDF views the launching of arson balloons and kites with great severity and will continue to operate with increasing force against those who carry out this type of terror activity,” it added.
Tensions remained high on the border with Gaza after an extremely violent weekend during which Gaza-based terrorists fired some 200 rockets at Israel, and in response, the Israeli Air Force (IAF) carried out the largest wave of daytime strikes against Hamas terror targets in Gaza since Operation Protective Edge in summer 2014, bombing some 40 terror targets.

In accordance with the situation assessment, the IDF on Sunday evening reinforced its Iron Dome aerial defense batteries in the Gush Dan area in central Israel and in southern Israel. In addition, several reserve soldiers were called up to reinforce the Aerial Defense Array.

Trump says meeting with Putin was ‘really good’ for Israel

US president tells Fox that Putin is a 'big fan' of Jewish state and Netanyahu, but does not go into specifics

US President Donald Trump on Monday said his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin Monday was good for Israel, seemingly referring to efforts to remove Iran-backed fighters from Syria’s Golan border.

Trump also said Putin was a strong supporter of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, but did not offer any specifics on what was discussed that related to Israel at the meeting in Helsinki, where Iran’s presence in Syria had been widely expected to be a main topic of conversation between the two world leaders.

“We came to a lot of good conclusions. A really good conclusion for Israel. Something very strong,” Trump told Fox News, without going into detail.

Trump said Putin was “a believer in Israel.

“He’s a fan of Bibi,” he said, using Netanyahu’s nickname. “Really helping him a lot and will help him a lot, which is good for all of us.”

Netanyahu flew to Moscow last week to discuss Iranian entrenchment in Syria with Putin last week and on Saturday also spoke to Trump over the phone on the issue. Israel has been trying to rally Russia to support removing Iranian-backed militias as far as possible from the border region on the Golan Heights.

At a joint press conference with the Russian leader earlier, Trump said Moscow “would like to do certain things with Syria having to do with the safety of Israel… We absolutely would like to work in order to help Israel, and Israel will be working with us. So both countries work jointly [for this purpose].”

Trump added that “creating safety for Israel is something both Putin and I would like to see very much.”

Putin at the conference said that during his “very successful” one-on-one meeting, Trump placed a special emphasis on maintaining Israel’s security. He said he and Trump agreed on securing Israel’s border with Syria, in accordance with the 1974 disengagement of forces deal following the Yom Kippur War.

When terrorist forces are wiped out in south and west Syria, Putin said, “the situation on the Golan Heights must be restored to what it was after the 1974 agreement, which set out the terms for the disengagement of forces between Israel and Syria.”

In a statement following the press conference Monday, Netanyahu thanked the two leaders for their commitment to Israeli security.

He praised Trump, saying, “The friendship between Israel and the US has never been stronger.”

Netanyahu “very much appreciates the security coordination between Israel and Russia and the clear position expressed by President Putin regarding the need to uphold the 1974 Separation of Forces Agreement between Israel and Syria,” the statement added.

Russia has been allied with Iran in backing Syrian President Bashar Assad during the country’s seven-year civil war. The Kremlin has also continued to back the nuclear deal with Iran, despite Trump pulling out of the accord in May.

Trump said Russia still supported the nuclear accord because it does business with the regime in Tehran, so the deal is in Moscow’s interest, but said Iran was experiencing unrest.

“It is not good for us or for the world, but they have riots in all their cities,” Trump told Fox News.

“The inflation is rampant, going through the roof. And not that you want to hurt anybody, but that regime wouldn’t let the people know that we are behind them 100 percent.

“They are having big protests all over the country, probably as big as they have ever had before. And battles happened since I terminated that deal, so we will see,” he added.

PayPal Closes Account of French Anti-Israel Boycott Organization
https://unitedwithisrael.org/paypal-closes-account-of-french-anti-israel-boycott-organization/?utm_source=pushengage&utm_medium=pushnotification&utm_campaign=pushengage
Jul 16, 2018
BDS in France suffered another setback by losing a source of revenue after an important account was closed. 
By: The Tower
PayPal has again closed an account of a major pro-BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) organization in France, Benjamin Weinthal reported for The Jerusalem Post Friday.
The PayPal link on the website of Agence Media Palestine, a BDS organization that is based in Paris, now says “This recipient is currently unable to receive money.”
The organization’s website is clear about its leanings, stating, “The campaign for Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions against Israeli occupation and settlements is growing in the world and in France.”
BDS organizations, according to legal scholars, violate France’s anti-discrimination Lellouche Law, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of national origin.
Agence Media Palestine still has donations handled by the French company, HelloAsso, which specializes in online financial transactions. A number of French pro-BDS organizations have switched to HelloAsso, after having their PayPal accounts canceled.
HelloAsso did not respond to questions. The Post reported that legal action against HelloAsso for discriminating against Israelis is being initiated.
PayPal has closed accounts of several French pro-BDS organizations this year. In 2016 both PayPal and French banking giant Credit Mutuel closed the account of Campagne BDS France after the Post ran an expose about the organization.
In 2015, France’s highest court, the Court of Cassation, ruled that BDS was an illegal form of hate speech. The ruling was based on France’s anti-discrimination act of 1981, which forbids “discrimination, hatred or violence toward a person or group of people on grounds of their origin, their belonging or their not belonging to an ethnic group, a nation, a race or a certain religion.”

My Life And The Gospel Revolution – Anastasia
By Anastasia Oh.
 Share
“Arabs are the enemy”. That was my reality as a child growing up in a small, religious Jewish settlement in the West Bank, surrounded by olive trees and Arab villages. I was forcefully thrown into complex political struggles – it was all around me, in the news, in the streets, at kindergarten and in school. As kids growing up in this region, you are never sheltered from the concept of war and death, and your childlike view of a safe and a loving world fades away with every new attack.

As we were passing by an Arab village on our way to a big city, I would stare through the car window, and the foreign curly letters on the signs terrified me. But the sound of the Arabic language was what scared me the most. First of all because I couldn’t understand it, it was the unknown, and because of the connotations it had with the explosions and the shootings, and the rocks flying towards us on the roads, and of friends that were killed.

I felt as if I, as a part of the Jewish people, was deeply hated, but it all seemed so natural and normal because it reminded me of the biblical stories, where the Israeli people were always hated and attacked everywhere they went. For me it was the natural continuum of our existence.

But all that was about to change.

God according to the Bible vs God according to the rabbis
The thing that didn’t make any sense for me as a young child was the contradictory way that God was presented in the biblical stories versus the way the rabbis had presented him in the Talmud. In the bible I met the Great God of Israel, a brave, loving, loyal warrior. The Jewish religious books, on the other hand, painted a picture of a cold, robot-like, stubborn and distant God. One who wouldn’t think twice before striking you with a lightning bolt for daring to rip a piece of toilet paper on Shabbat, or for dropping your prayer book.

I admired the God of the Bible with all my heart. I wanted to follow him like Abraham did, I wanted to declare his righteousness out loud like the prophets, and to charge into the battlefield in his name, like King David. but at the same time I was angry at the god that the rabbis presented. How could he expect me to follow all these laws and rules, without even knowing what it feels like to be human, trapped in this rotten, fallen world, and in this corrupt body?

We moved out of the settlement eventually, and as a tenager I realized I didn’t want to pretend that everything was ok anymore, or that I was obeying the Jewish law. It was hypocrisy for me to pretend, and I feared God enough to not play this game with him. And as a teenager I decided to leave religion, but God was still there, a distant character, a name to call out in times of trouble.

Getting to know Jesus
Jesus was a foreign idea to me. A different culture, crosses crusades and popes. Maybe a guy who had some good ideas that went bad over time. We don’t study about him in school, in a way we deliberately ignore his existence, and we never acknowledge him as one of our own. We would never even consider following him because it will be like betraying the God of the Bible – as distant as he was, God still has a strong grip on the Jewish heart. That type of blind paradoxical loyalty creates a barrier between Jesus and his people.

That barrier crushed into the ground when I read the forbidden chapter in the book of Isaiah for the first time, at the age of 23.

I saw him. I recognised him immediately, and everything made sense.

All the questions I had been asking throughout the years were answered: Jesus knew what it was like to be a human, and he made a way for us to be with him because we couldn’t. He was in my Bible this whole time.

My old thinking patterns were gone, like a blank page, and I started seeing the world through Jesus’ eyes. I wanted to know more and more, so I started my studies at the Israel College of the Bible.

I remember my first chapel, during worship, they started playing an Arabic song. All those years of pain, fear, hate and war washed off of me, like old dirty rags with every note they played and every word spoken…

That same language that terrified me so much before was the most beautiful thing I had ever heard.  

That is the power of the gospel.
The gospel heals and cleans.

It turns enemies to more than mere friends.

It make us one family.

I joined the media team at One for Israel as a director, editor, and presenter about two years ago, where I could finally combine my two greatest loves in life: theology and media. We are a very small team, and we produce all the videos in our humble little studio here in Netanya.

We do testimonials of Israelis and English-speaking Jews from all over the world who met their Messiah. We also take the most frequently-asked questions and the most common objections against Jesus, and tear them apart one by one in a series of apologetic videos, tackling the arguments from a philosophical, scientific, and biblical perspective.  

For me it is much more than just videos, it is the start of the revolution!

You see, for 2000 years the Jewish religious leaders rejected Jesus and hid him from the people. They are the ones with full authority and power, they have the final word and they are the ones who can easily stop the Gospel from being preached in Jewish communities. And throughout history, people claiming to be followers of Jesus made it easy for the rabbis to paint Jesus as the reason for all our troubles as a nation, as a traitor, as a forbidden name that you are not even allowed to pronounce.

But there is one thing that the rabbis have no control over. And that, my friends, is the internet.

It is neutral territory that leaves the gatekeepers powerless, and opens a door that has been sealed for 2000 years.

The revolution in Israel
Israelis nowadays practically live on the internet. They are there, non-stop, 24/7. In fact, Israel is the leading nation when it comes to using YouTube and other social media, second only to Taiwan. The internet has become a land of its own, at the uttermost parts of the earth!

People are watching the videos, and in numbers I wouldn’t have dared to dream of just a few years ago. Israel has around eight million citizens, and our Hebrew-language videos have already reached 18 million views. In total, worldwide, we have been able to reach more than 68 million views.

Now, almost everyone has been exposed to the Gospel in one way or another. Even the most guarded sects within Orthodox Judaism can’t prevent their members from getting a smartphone. They all know it’s out there, the secret “forbidden chapters” of the Bible like Isaiah 53 and Daniel 9 are no longer a secret. The truth about Jesus pops up on their Facebook newsfeed, on Instagram, and on YouTube videos… in their own language, spoken to them by their own people.

Jesus made Aliya! He is no longer a foreign idea. And his name is Yeshua again.

(Worthy News) - Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas was in Moscow on Saturday to meet with Vladimir Putin, just days after the Russian leader hosted Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Abbas told the Russian leader of his concerns over US President Donald Trump’s decision to move the country’s embassy to Jerusalem, as well as Israeli settlement activity.

“We are resisting attempts by the Americans to impose their decisions on the most sensitive problems of Palestine,” Russian news agencies quoted him as saying in translated remarks.

MOSCOW — Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas was in Moscow on Saturday to meet  with Vladimir Putin, just days after the Russian leader hosted Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“I’m glad of the opportunity to tell you about the contact we have had with your neighbors, and leaders of various countries,” Putin told him as they met at the Kremlin, in quotes carried by Russian agencies.

“I know that the situation in the region is difficult and we are grateful that you have used the World Cup as a reason to come to Moscow,” Putin said, adding that he was glad of the opportunity to discuss the problems facing the Palestinians.

Abbas told the Russian leader of his concerns over US President Donald Trump’s decision to move the country’s embassy to Jerusalem, as well as Israeli settlement activity.

“We are resisting attempts by the Americans to impose their decisions on the most sensitive problems of Palestine,” Russian news agencies quoted him as saying in translated remarks.

The talks came as Palestinians in Gaza fired dozens of rockets and mortar shells into Israel and the IDF bombed dozens of Hamas targets in the widest day-time air strikes since the 2014 war.

Abbas has been imposing sanctions on Hamas in a bid to force the terrorist group to give up control of the coastal enclave, which it seized from Abbas’s Fatah group in 2007.

There was no word on whether Abbas discussed Gaza with the Russian leader.

Netanyahu was in Moscow on Wednesday, where the situation in Syria was the main focus of his meeting with Putin.

The archive of Iranian nuclear documents seized by the Israeli Mossad from a Tehran warehouse in January shows that Iran’s program to build nuclear weapons “was almost certainly larger, more sophisticated and better organized” than was suspected, unnamed nuclear experts were quoted as saying in the New York Times on Sunday, after being shown selected documents from the haul by US reporters.

One of the Iranian documents specifies plans to build a first “batch of five weapons” and discusses sites for possible underground nuclear tests, the Times reported, after one of its reporters was given limited access to the haul last week, along with a reporter from the Washington Post, and another from the Wall Street Journal.

“None were built, possibly because the Iranians feared being caught, or because a campaign by American and Israeli intelligence agencies to sabotage the effort, with cyberattacks and disclosures of key facilities, took its toll,” said the Times.

“It’s quite good,” Robert Kelley, a nuclear engineer and former inspector for the UN’s nuclear watchdog, the IAEA, told The Times dryly, after being shown some of the documents. “The papers show these guys were working on nuclear bombs.”

The documents also reinforce Israel’s contention that Iran remains determined to attain a nuclear weapons archive, despite its commitments under the 2015 nuclear deal (the JCPOA), the US reporters noted.

The materials they were shown include documentation that names current Iranian President Hassan Rouhani as a member of the “Council for Advanced Technologies” that approved the rogue nuclear weapons program, the Washington Post said, and indicate “a supporting role by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, as well as the Quds Force.” Previously released documents indicate that the Iranian army was charged with overseeing the conversion of low-enriched uranium to weapons-grade fuel suitable for nuclear bombs.

The three US reporters were given limited access to the trove last week, and were briefed by Israeli officials. Israel, which unveiled the documents in April, has been mining the trove of 100,000 documents for new information, and has also shared the material with the IAEA and with US and European intelligence agencies. US President Donald Trump withdrew from the JCPOA in May, soon after Netanyahu publicly presented the haul at a press conference, in which he declared that “Iran lied” when claiming not to seek nuclear weapons.

The thrust of last week’s briefing for the US press was to highlight how far the nuclear program had progressed — Iran “was on the cusp of mastering key bombmaking technologies when the research was ordered halted” in 2003, the Washington Post said — and to underline Israel’s insistence that the archive demonstrates that the Iranian regime has not abandoned its effort to obtain a nuclear weapons arsenal, but has merely mothballed parts of it.

“These documents are old, but they have a bearing on the future,” a senior Israeli official was quoted by the Post as saying. “It’s not a history lesson. They have capabilities they can use in the future.”

Iran halted much of the nuclear weapons program in 2003, but internal memos in the archive “show senior scientists making extensive plans to continue several projects in secret, hidden within existing military research programs,” said the Washington Post.

“Let there be no mistake: the amount of personnel in the overt and covert parts will not decrease,” it quoted an Iranian official writing in a memo dated September 3, 2003. “The structure will not become smaller, and every sub-project will supervise both its overt and covert parts.”

“In a few years, when some of the JCPOA’s restrictions expire, Iran will be in a position to resume work on a nuclear device that Israel sees as a threat to its existence,” the Israeli official told the Post.

The seized archive “explains why the [nuclear deal] to us is worse than nothing, because it leaves key parts of the nuclear program unaddressed,” the Israeli official said, echoing Netanyahu’s frequent contention. “It doesn’t block Iran’s path to the bomb. It paves Iran’s path to the bomb.”

The Washington Post said US intelligence agencies have long believed that “Iran has kept the intellectual core of its nuclear program intact.” And the  documents showcased by Israel detail several meetings in late 2003 in which the Iranian nuclear project chiefs “discuss ways to keep the program’s scientists busy with nuclear-relevant research,” even after it was ostensibly frozen.

The Tehran warehouse from which the documents were purloined “was put into use only after the 2015 accord was reached with the United States, European powers, Russia, and China,” the Times reported. Israeli officials contend that the fact that the Iranians “systematically went about collecting thousands of pages spread around the country documenting how to build a weapon, how to fit it on a missile and how to detonate it” demonstrates that they fully intend to return to the effort of nuclear weapons building when the opportunity arises.

The three US reporters were permitted to see and touch, with gloves on, “a few pages of original files, including handwritten notes signed by Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, the Iranian physicist who Western intelligence agencies say was in charge of [the Iranian program] Project Amad,” the Washington Post said. “Journalists were given copies of some documents, including several that were previously unpublished. Others were shown only briefly or not at all, on the grounds that they contained explicit technical details that could be used to make nuclear weapons.”

The documents show that Iran obtained “explicit weapons-design information from a foreign source,” the Washington Post said. “We see explicit material related to nuclear weapons from different sources, some of it not Iranian in origin,” an Israeli intelligence official said. Israeli officials would not say whether the bomb design information was provided by a state or by an individual. Iran is known to have obtained assistance in building uranium-enrichment centrifuges from Pakistani scientist Abdul Qadeer Khan, who is also believed by US intelligence to have given “partial blueprints for a Chinese nuclear device to at least one of his international customers,” the Washington Post said.

“Iran had foreign help, though Israeli officials held back any documents indicating where it came from,” said the New York Times. “Much was clearly from Pakistan, but officials said other foreign experts were also involved — though they may not have been working for their governments.”

The archive confirms that the covert Iranian nuclear program was launched in the late 1980s and halted in 2003, when Iran feared a US invasion, and when its secret uranium enrichment plant at Natanz was exposed. While this was known, revelations in the archive include “previously unknown photos of a large cylindrical test chamber in which Iran is said to have conducted tests of an implosion device of the type used to trigger a nuclear detonation,” the Washington Post said.

The US reporters were also shown documents that show Iran was “measuring radiation from a neutron-generating explosive test inside the same chamber in 2002,” it added. “In modern nuclear weapons design, a neutron generator releases radioactive particles to help sustain a powerful nuclear chain reaction.”

The reporters were also shown documents and photographs detailing Iranian work on “making a form of uranium metal that can be used as a neutron initiator, and still others [that] describe problems with uranium contamination outside the test chamber, which was located at the Parchin military base outside Tehran.”

The Post noted that when the UN sought to inspect the Parchin test site years later, Iran first “completely dismantled the test chamber, scraped away several tons of topsoil, cut down nearby trees and covered the entire area with fresh asphalt.”

Reported the Times: “By the time the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Yukiya Amano, was finally permitted to visit the site in 2015, it was empty, though the agency’s report indicated that it looked as if equipment had been removed. The photos [shown to the reporters by Israel] indicate that is exactly what happened: They show a large chamber that nuclear experts say is tailor-made for the kind of experimental activity that the international inspectors were looking for….

“The chamber appears to be part of neutron experiments that strongly point to an effort to build nuclear weapons,” added the Times. “Nuclear explosions start when fast-moving particles known as neutrons split atoms of nuclear fuel in two, producing chain reactions that release more neutrons and enormous bursts of energy. At the core of an atom bomb, a device known as a neutron initiator — or sometimes a spark plug — creates the initial wave of speeding neutrons.”

In the documents, one of the Iranian scientists, Masoud Alimohammadi, warns that work on neutron-generated chain reactions for a nuclear explosion must be kept secret at all costs. “‘Neutrons’ research could not be considered ‘overt’ and needs to be concealed,” Alimohammadi’s notes say. “We cannot excuse such activities as defensive. Neutron activities are sensitive, and we have no explanation for them.” Alimohammadi, the Times noted, was assassinated in January 2010.

While Israel argues that the archive underlines how Iran fooled the West, and that the 2015 agreement is a terrible mistake, an assessment shared by the Trump administration, the Washington Post noted that “proponents say the pact has permanent provisions that will alert inspectors and spy agencies quickly if Iran begins work on an actual weapon.”

Under Tehran’s nose
Israeli officials also gave the three US reporters additional, but not full, details of the operation to seize and bring home the Iranian archive, some of which has been previously detailed.

Israel established early last year that the materials related to the Iranian program were being collected at a single warehouse in the Shorabad district of southern Tehran. The anonymous building had no overt security, and very few Iranians knew of its existence, the Israeli officials said last week.

“Mossad agents were able learn the internal layout of the building, including the location and general contents of 32 safes that contained paper records, photos and computer-storage files from ‘Project Amad,’” the Washington Post said.

“Clearly, the Israeli spies had inside help,” the Times claimed, without elaboration.

They decided to carry out the operation on January 31, and assessed that they had “a time window of exactly six hours, 29 minutes, in which they believed they could breach the facility, open the safes and remove half a ton of documents without being detected,” said the Post.

In that time, they had to “disable the alarms, break through two doors, cut through dozens of giant safes and get out of the city with a half-ton of secret materials,” said The New York Times. “The agents arrived that night, Jan. 31, with torches that burned at least 3,600 degrees, hot enough, as they knew from intelligence collected during the planning of the operation, to cut through the 32 Iranian-made safes.”

The Mossad team knew guards would arrive at 7 a.m., and were ordered to finish by 5 a.m., so that they would also have time to escape. “When time was up, they fled for the border, hauling 50,000 pages and 163 compact discs of memos, videos and plans,” said the Times. Fewer than 24 agents were directly involved in the break-in, it said, though Israeli officials have previously indicated more than 100 personnel were involved in the overall operation.

“In most Mossad operations, spies aim to penetrate a facility and photograph or copy material without traces,” the Times noted. “But in this case, the Mossad chief, Yossi Cohen, ordered that the material be stolen outright. That would drastically shorten the time the agents spent inside the building. But the Israelis wanted to be able to counter Iranian claims that the material was forged and offer it up for examination by international groups.”

Not all the material in the archives was removed. The Israeli officials did not detail how the material was brought out of Iran, or even whether it left Iran via land, air, or sea. They said only that it was removed via “several different routes” and that there was no chase. “At exactly 7 a.m., as the Mossad expected, a guard arrived and discovered that the doors and safes were broken. He sounded the alarm, and the Iranian authorities soon began a nationwide campaign to locate the burglars,” said the Times.

The Iranian bid to find the thieves involved “tens of thousands of Iranian security and police personnel,” an Israeli official said, but Iran maintained a public silence over the heist from under its nose. Until Netanyahu unveiled the haul in April, “the Iranians never said a word in public about what had happened.”

What Netanyahu said
Unveiling the archive in April, Netanyahu called the Mossad operation one of the “greatest achievements” of Israeli intelligence. “You may well know that Iran’s leaders repeatedly deny ever pursuing nuclear weapons,” he said. “Iran lied. Big time.”

The cache, he said, contained “incriminating documents, incriminating charts, incriminating presentations, incriminating blueprints, incriminating photos, incriminating videos and more.”

Netanyahu said Project Amad included five key elements — designing nuclear weapons, developing nuclear cores, building nuclear implosion systems, preparing nuclear tests, and integrating nuclear warheads on missiles. Amid growing pressure, Iran decided to shut down Project Amad in 2003, Netanyahu said, instead splitting its nuclear program into covert and overt tracks in order to avoid scrutiny.



“This is exactly what Iran continued to do,” said Netanyahu. “Iran planned at the highest levels to continue work related to nuclear weapons — under different guises and using the same personnel. What I’ve shown you tonight is just a fraction of the total material that we have. But even from this fraction you can draw four main conclusions. First, Iran lied about never having a nuclear weapons program,” said Netanyahu.

Second, “Even after the deal, Iran continued to preserve and expand its nuclear know how for future use.” Third, “Iran lied again in 2015, when it didn’t come clean to the IAEA as required by the unclear deal.” And fourth, he said, “The nuclear deal is based on lies. It is based on Iranian lies and Iranian deception… 100,000 files right here prove that they lied.”

Three civilians were hurt when Gaza terrorists scored a direct hit on a home in Sderot. Nearly 200 rockets were reportedly fired into Israel on Saturday.
By: TPS and WIN Staff
More than 174 rockets and mortar shells were fired at southern Israel from inside Gaza, according to a Times of Israel report.
Although most of the rockets and mortars landed in open areas, Israeli officials reported that some exploded inside Israeli towns, causing damage to buildings.
Three family members were injured when a mortar fired from Gaza hit a house in the town of Sderot at around 6:30pm Saturday evening.
A spokesman for the Magen David Adom Ambulance Service said that three people suffered shrapnel injuries of varying degrees.
A 50-year-old man suffered moderate wounds after being hit in the chest. A 20-year-old woman sustained light-to-moderate injuries to her lower limbs, and a 14-year-old girl suffered facial wounds.
“We were sitting in the living room, and the glass fell on us,” said Aaron Buchris, the father. “The entire house was filled with smoke, and we were filled with blood. We got shrapnel in us, my daughters were also injured. We were shocked.”
The three were taken by ambulance to Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon.
A spokesman for the Sderot municipality said two mortars had hit the town, one scoring a direct hit on the house, while the other hit the courtyard of a synagogue without causing injuries.

Following a day of rockets launched at Israel from Gaza, the IDF attacked Hamas with the heaviest strikes since the 2014 summer war.
By: TPS and World Israel News
In the largest strike on the Gaza Strip since the 2014 Gaza war, IDF jets hit some 40 Hamas targets Saturday afternoon as dozens of rockets were fired into Israel.
“In consultation with the Minister of Defense, the Chief-of-Staff and the top security command of the State of Israel, we have decided on strong action against Hamas terrorism. The IDF has struck Hamas with the hardest blow since Operation Protective Edge and we will increase the strength of our attacks as necessary,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated Saturday evening.
The IDF said it attacked four Hamas military compounds in a third wave of strikes following attacks overnight Friday and early Saturday morning.
Among the targets was a Hamas battalion headquarters in Beit Lahia in the northern Gaza Strip where the IDF said it had hit an urban warfare training compound, ammunition storage depots and command centers.  According to the IDF, the strikes also targeted Hamas naval facilities. Unconfirmed Palestinian reports said at least two people had been killed in the strikes.
The IDF said it had also targeted a rocket launch squad and a mortar shell launcher in the northern Gaza Strip.
Meanwhile, Hamas fired at least 60 rockets and mortars at Israel throughout the day. Around 15 were shot down by Iron Dome missile defense batteries, the rest fell in open fields.

During the Israeli raid, Hamas militants reportedly retaliated by launching 17 rockets, five of which were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system. An additional 14 mortar shells were launched by militants throughout the night, one of which was intercepted by the air defenses. “Hamas is responsible for the events transpiring in Gaza and emanating from it and will bear the consequences for its actions,” the IDF said.

When the sirens sounded in the Eshkol and Esdot Hanegev Regional Councils, the families woken up in the middle of the night only “had seconds to run to bomb shelters,” the IDF added, without elaborating on whether any of the Hamas projectiles caused any damage.

Earlier in the day, during the weekly Great March of Return protest, an IDF officer was moderately injured by a grenade thrown from the Gaza Strip. The Israelis retaliated with live fire, killing a Palestinian teen and injuring 220 others throughout the day, Wafa reported. In the 100 days since the weekly rallies began, at least 138 people, including 19 minors, were killed. Around 15,000 protesters have been injured since March 30.

Muslim Democrat Running for Congress Blames Israel for ‘Evil Doings’ in Gaza
Jul 11, 2018


A Somali-American Muslim woman running for a Democratic seat in Congress accused Israel of “evil doings” in the Gaza Strip and called it an “apartheid state.”


By: JNS


A Somali American Muslim women running to replace Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) has previously accused Israel of “evil doings” in the Gaza Strip and called it an “apartheid state.”


In a November 2012 tweet, Ilhan Omar, who is currently a Minnesota state representative, said, “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.” Her 2012 tweet came after the Israel Defense Forces launched an operation in the Gaza Strip following the launching of 100 rockets at the Jewish state.


In May, Omar responded to criticism of the 2012 tweet by accusing Israel of being an “apartheid state.”


“Drawing attention to the apartheid Israeli regime is far from hating Jews. You are a hateful sad man, I pray to Allah you get the help you need and find happiness,” she wrote on Twitter on May 28, 2018.


Omar told ABC News on Sunday that she is not anti-Semitic and accused her critics of “bigotry.”


“These accusations are without merit. They are rooted in bigotry toward a belief about what Muslims are stereotyped to believe,” she said, while not apologizing for her previous tweets.


Another Democratic candidate for Congress, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who upset incumbent New York Rep. Joe Crowley in a party primary late last month, had previously accused Israel of having committed a “massacre” in the Gaza Strip in reference to May 14 clashes at the Israel-Gaza border.

French-Tunisian Imam Hassen Chalghoumi, who met IDF Spokesperson Brig. Gen. Ronen Manelis last week and posted the historic meeting on social media, has been facing death threats.


Chalghoumi, a moderate Muslim leader known for his criticism of radical Islam and fundamentalism, met with Manelis in France, and the two stated that they “have a common understanding of terrorism and its dangers.”


Both condemned Hamas and Iran for their violence and terrorism and spoke of peace and religion-based coexistence.

The clip sparked a backlash from other Muslim leaders who condemned Chalghoumi’s friendship towards Israel, while others issued a string of threats. The imam filed a complaint with the police, Israel’s Ynet news reported Sunday.


Chalghoumi, who has visited the Jewish state, is a known defender of Israel and was previously threatened for his stance.


In May 2006, his home was ransacked following a Holocaust memorial ceremony that he conducted in Drancy. His cooperation with Jewish organizations in France has won him the epithet “Imam of the Jews.”


Chalghoumi has spoken out against political Islam, saying that Muslim extremists such as the Islamic State (ISIS) emerged “from our own countries, from among our sons.”


Chalghoumi, who is the imam of the Drancy mosque in Seine-Saint-Denis, said that people who left to join ISIS in Syria and Iraq must not be allowed to return. “They are killers,” he stated.


“As a result of the brutal crimes they committed, they have become barbaric,” he said in a February interview.

Israeli navy offers solution to rescue trapped Thai boys
 July 8, 2018
Israeli navy offers solution to rescue trapped Thai boysThe Thai Navy works to rescue the 12 boys and their coach. (Thai Navy via AP)
Israel’s navy presented a potential solution to save the trapped Thai boys and their soccer coach.
By: World Israel News Staff
Israel’s Ambassador to Thailand Meir Shlomo said Sunday that Israel’s navy has found a potential rescue solution for 12 boys, ages 11-16, and their 25-year-old soccer coach, who have been trapped in a cave for two weeks.
Thai authorities said that the key part of the rescue operation is underway. Four have already made it out safely.
“We presented the plan to the Thai governor and to the lead diver responsible for rescue operations,” Shlomo told Army Radio Sunday. “Use of the solution depends on adjusting it to the terrain.”
“I was asked to arrive here by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and see what kind of aid Israel can offer to its friend Thailand,” the ambassador said.
On Saturday, Shlomo visited the site of the rescue efforts at the Tham Luang cave complex, where he said he met several Israelis who volunteered to help and were “doing a nice job.”
Israeli rescuers have been part of the international effort to extract the children from the flooded cave, and Israeli technology has helped maintain communication between the outside world and the trapped boys.
In a statement released late Sunday afternoon, Chiang Rai acting Gov. Narongsak Osatanakorn said that “divers will work with medics in the cave to assess the boys’ health before determining who will come out first.”
“They cannot decide how many of them will be able to come out for the first operation. Based on the complexity and difficulty of the cave environment, it is unknown how long it might take and how many children would exit the cave,” he added.
The rescue operation began at 10 a.m. Sunday when expert divers entered the cave. Trips from the entrance to where the team is trapped and back takes about 11 hours.
Rescuers say it may take two-to-four days for the entire team to reach safety, depending on conditions inside the cave.

Despite continued killings of civilians in Syria, the UN’s top human rights body devotes entire proceedings to its ‘Hate Israel’ ritual.
A day of Israel-bashing is a permanent feature of every Council meeting under its only country-specific agenda item, titled “the Human rights situation in Palestine and other occupied Arab territories.”
At the UNHRC this week, the world’s worst dictators attacked the Jewish state with outrageous lies. When UN Watch’s Hillel Neuer took the floor to call out their hypocrisy, the outraged Syrian delegate suggested that next time he be “interrupted.”

British Government Launches Inquiry Into Incitement in Palestinian Textbooks
“It is grotesque that UK taxpayers’ money is helping to support the teaching of a curriculum which incites violence and terrorism and spreads anti-Semitism,” said MP Joan Ryan.
 https://unitedwithisrael.org/british-government-launches-inquiry-into-incitement-in-palestinian-textbooks/?

By: JNS
The British government is set to review the Palestinian Authority’s (PA) educational curriculum over growing concerns that British taxpayers are paying for the Palestinians to teach children incitement and anti-Semitism.

In a letter to Labour Friends of Israel (LFI), Members of Parliament Joan Ryan and Ian Austin, and Middle East Minister Alistair Burt “brought forward a planned assessment of the Palestinian curriculum, which will involve a rigorous and independent review of the pilot PA textbook,” the UK Jewish News reported.

The United Kingdom pays more than £20million ($26 million) per year for Palestinian schools. LFI has been pushing for a review of PA curriculum for several months.

LFI director Jennifer Gerber said Ryan “first raised LFI’s deep concerns about the P.A.’s new lessons in hate directly with the government in September.”

“It is grotesque that UK taxpayers’ money is helping to support the teaching of a curriculum which incites violence and terrorism and spreads anti-Semitism,” said the MP.

In a debate on Wednesday in Parliament convened at the request of Ryan, Middle East Minister Burt said “there is no place in education for materials or practices that incite young minds toward violence,” and that the review, which should be completed by September 2019, will be “evidence-based and rigorous.”

The investigation was spurred by an analysis conducted by the Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School Education group into PA school textbooks, concluding that they provoke “young Palestinians to acts of violence in a more extensive and sophisticated manner,” and that “the curriculum’s focus appears to have expanded from demonisation of Israel to providing a rationale for war.”

Learn what causes Palestinian terror and what needs to be done to stop it.
Israelis do not hate Palestinians, yet Palestinians are teaching their children to attack and murder innocent Israeli civilians.
A quick glimpse at Palestinian social media and TV reveals malicious lies and vicious incitement by the Palestinian Authority (PA), the Hamas terror organization and the Islamic Jihad movement.
Unless Palestinian leaders stop such incitement and blind hatred, there is little chance terror will subside.

Israel Is Losing the Social Media War

Israel Is Losing the Social Media War
Military supremacy is no longer enough. The war of words can matter more than bullets.

Global outrage over last month’s peak to the so-called Great March of Return on the Gaza-Israel border was instant and understandable. Over 50 people died and hundreds more were injured on a single day. What happened was as viscerally unpleasant as civil strife gets. It was brutal.

More violence followed. Hamas and Islamic Jihad aimed rocket barrages at civilian targets near the border. One shell even landed in the yard of a kindergarten. Israel’s air force struck back. The fight went on.

Then more tragedy; more outrage. A Gazan nurse was shot while tending to the wounded. Her face, smiling and innocent, flooded social media. To make matters worse it initially appeared, and was later disproved, that the culprit was a female IDF sniper, whose image, twinned with her ostensible victim, swept across Twitter and Facebook.

Two battles are taking place between Israel and Hamas in Gaza: one on the ground and the other in cyber space.
As ever in modern conflict – from Syria to Iraq to even Occupy Wall Street – two battles are taking place between Israel and Hamas in Gaza: one on the ground and the other in cyber space. This latter battle centers on questions of outrage, perceived culpability, blaming (on both sides), and is played out in cycles that are determined by the mechanics and rhythms of social media. In terms of substance, this clash is between two opposing narratives. On the one hand, a clear Hamas narrative of a peaceful march in which defenseless demonstrators are mowed down by the evil Israel Defense Forces (IDF). Set against that is the narrative of the IDF: the soldiers of a democratic state protecting its citizens from hordes of terrorists armed with weapons and explosives, who are determined to break through the border.

As the battle switches to missiles and planes and back to missiles, fire kites, air strikes, etc., the way events on the ground are portrayed shapes both media cycles and the responses of states, which in turn constrain or encourage the tactics used by each side. The tragedy of death is perennial, but what Gaza has shown is that the war of words can matter more than bullets.


 
This observation may appear counterintuitive, but it emerges from several years of personal experience with, and research into, the role of social media in shaping modern battle-space. In 2010 I embedded with the U.N. peacekeepers in the Congo as they faced-off against the terror militia group the Lord’s Resistance Army. In 2014 I spent almost a year in Ukraine covering its war with Russia. It was only four years later, but it felt as if I were covering a war in a different century.

I realized that in Ukraine I was covering not one but two wars: one fought on the ground with guns and tanks, and the other online with posts and shares. The experience prompted me to write a book on social media and its changing effect on war that focuses on three conflicts: Russia and Ukraine, ISIS, and Israel’s 2014 war against Hamas. At the center of all these conflicts one thing stands out: the ability of social media to affect war – both on the ground and, perhaps more importantly, in the discussion and information battles around it. Social media, has, I realized, changed the ways that wars were waged, reported on, and consumed. And nowhere is this the case more than for the State of Israel.

In April 2016, I met a young man called Vitaly in the Siberian city of Tyumen. He spoke no English but he was gregarious and fun. He was a Russian liberal. He disliked Putin. All this made the reason I had come to visit him even more strange: In 2014, during the height of fighting between Russia and Ukraine, Vitaly, a one-time journalist, had worked out of a bland building in St. Petersburg for a company called the Internet Research Agency. His masters tasked him with a simple goal: to spread as much pro-Russian and anti-Ukrainian propaganda as possible – and to do it during war, a period of acute tension.

Vitaly was given a crash course in how to disseminate information (in his case outright propaganda) that gained as much traction as quickly as possible. In essence he was taught how to make material of the most sensationalist kind go viral by any and all means possible. He became a professional war troll.

I thought of Vitaly’s story as the March of Return began on March 30 (Land Day), morphed into serious violence throughout mid-May, peaking on May 15 (Nakba Day), and, while diminished, continues to the present day. Throughout this period, online content, from both Palestinian and Israeli sources and sympathizers, has become near ubiquitous (albeit in fits and starts) in my various social media feeds.

To understand the role that this material plays in warfare, it is necessary to first grasp how information spreads in the digital age. Ukraine was a laboratory in which Russia honed the techniques it would use to attempt to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election, interfere in the Baltic States, and help propel the far right to gains across Europe. The secret of effective information dissemination, Vitaly was told, lay in understanding the three elements that make content go viral.

The tragedy of death is perennial, but what Gaza has shown is that the war of words can matter more than bullets.
In today’s world of posts, shares, and tweets our online lives require a near constant supply of adrenaline and dopamine hits. Capturing people’s attention is accordingly harder than it has ever been. You have, Vitaly was told, one to two seconds tops to make someone scrolling through his or her phone stop on your content. The user’s lizard brain is where it all begins. Without the ability to make someone stop, nothing subsequent is possible.

What makes people stop scrolling through their feeds is the second element: an image – the more arresting the better. Subtlety doesn’t play well on social media. But even if you make the user stop, they most likely won’t click through to any accompanying article, which means the image has to be a way of embedding the message in their brain. For Vitaly this meant creating visual memes with simple text. “I want to start a war but none of my friends will join me,” read the words accompanying a photo of Obama looking almost tearful in one meme that Vitaly posted to Vkontakte (the Russian Facebook).

In another, he posted a two-panel meme. In the first photo an angry looking Obama says, “We don’t talk to terrorists!” In the second he is shown smiling with a caption: “We just sponsor them.”

Vitaly’s posts illustrate the “conflict” meme. It is by nature firstly sensationalist; second, deliberately devoid of all nuance. It is simple stuff, but effective.

If all three elements are deployed effectively then what follows is as predictable as it is effective. Memes are created and circulated; they go viral; people are driven into a frenzy. For Vitaly, this meant enraging his target audience of Russians and eastern Ukrainians about the – fabricated – behavior of Kiev’s “fascist junta.” Thus was the Kremlin’s base shored up, and hatred of the “enemy” increased. Compromise of any kind was rendered near-impossible.

This pattern has been replicated almost exactly during the Gaza crisis. The general violence has been memed and tweeted and shared relentlessly throughout, and by both sides. But certain key instances stand out, of which two will be considered. The first occurred when the IDF killed over 50 Gazan rioters. A meme quickly spread. Entitled “Bloodbath in Gaza: Names of Palestinians killed in cold blood by the IDF,” it was – critically – a graphic with photographs of every person killed dominating the meme and their names and ages below.

The IDF meanwhile was responding to charges of indiscriminate killing of civilians with a technique called mirroring (essentially responding in an almost identical format). In a meme entitled “The Terrorists of the Violent Riots,” once again the photos were laid out for all to see – their ages and names were also given – this time with their role in terror networks made explicit.

What saved Israel was that within 48 hours it emerged that out of 62 people killed at least 50 were members of Hamas.
What makes this episode so instructive is not that it ended in an Israeli PR victory (a rare enough occurrence) but how this happened. As Neri Zilber, a Tel Aviv-based journalist and adjunct fellow of the Washington Institute, observes: “You need to understand that what saved Israel was that it emerged that out of 62 people killed at least 50 were members of Hamas, and that this data point came out by a Hamas official during an interview about 48 hours later [after 15 May]. Critically, he said it due to internal pressure – the need to deflect public anger at Hamas sending its people out to get shot by claiming that it had sacrificed its own first. It was the best thing that happened to Israel in the two-month episode in terms of public diplomacy, and it came not from the IDF but from Hamas.”

He continues: “The IDF did a really poor job of rebutting information. They were often delayed in responding and often the information they put out was insufficient to rebut certain claims, due to them being unwilling to break classified protocol.”

Zilber hits on a key point in describing the new warfare. We live in an age of virtual mass enlistment, where anyone can become an actor in war with almost no barriers to entry – all you need is a smartphone to tweet and post your narratives and you have entered the online battlefield. And these narratives are almost always shaped by and derivative of those posted by more experienced users. Neophytes learn fast. Institutions like governments and indeed armies – large, bloated bureaucracies with endless chains of command and permission requests – are at a disadvantage compared to the freewheeling, hyper-empowered, connected citizen I term Homo Digitalis.

The second problem for Israel was that 48 hours in today’s social media-powered news cycle is a lifetime. The truth did emerge and so did some recantations from reporters and other commentators. But the damage had been done. For the pro-Palestinian meme creators the formula is simple: rinse, dry, and repeat for the next hot incident.

The second incident was the killing of the Gazan nurse – purportedly by a female IDF soldier (an immigrant from the United States, no less, just to hammer home the iniquity of it). Again, the narrative thread hung on an image – a photo of the soldier, identified as Rebecca Rum, in full uniform, cradling an M16. Many memes posted Rebecca’s photo alongside the highly-telegenic dead nurse, Razan Ashraf al-Najjar. It was an instant and bitter symmetry.

It must be pointed out that the IDF is still investigating the death of a nurse who seemed only to be tending to the wounded, and it may well find one of its soldiers criminally culpable. But the point here is not to assess guilt, but to demonstrate the cycles of information warfare. Al-Najjar was murdered in cold blood, went the narrative, which may well be true, but the information hook was that her murder was perpetuated by another young woman from a foreign country, thus capturing the worst characteristics of Israel in the Western pro-Palestinian narrative in a simple, easy-to-digest form. As it turned out the photo was taken four years earlier in Egypt and Rebecca Rum (not her real name) had been nowhere near Gaza at the time. But again, the damage had been done.

Gaza shows us how war has evolved. The question is: Why does this evolution in war affect Israel particularly? The answer lies in two parts: one, the nature of the wars Israel fights, and two, the philosophical questions that surround conflict. In the first instance, it is fundamental to understand that the Israel of 2018 is not the Israel of 1948, 1967, or even 1973. The greatest threats to its people do not come from neighboring states. No state in the Middle East, not even Iran, has acquired the capacity to defeat Israel. The Jews will not be thrown into the sea through military force.

The conflicts Israel fights are asymmetric ones in which it, as a state, faces off against a non-state actor.
Instead, the gravest threat to Israel comes from insurgents such as Hamas and Islamic Jihad. The conflicts Israel fights are asymmetric ones in which it, as a state, faces off against a non-state actor. Israel’s victory on the battlefield is therefore predetermined. Hamas fires rockets at Israel knowing full well that the majority of them will be shot down by Israel’s missile defense system Iron Dome. It sends protestors to “return” to their land knowing full well they will be stopped. It cannot defeat Israel on the ground.

Harvard professor Joseph Nye has asserted that 21st-century conflicts will be less about whose army wins than whose story wins.
But Hamas can defeat Israel online – and as such in the clichéd but powerful international court of opinion. Harvard professor Joseph Nye has asserted that 21st-century conflicts will be less about whose army wins than whose story wins. What those pro-Palestinian tweeters do with their memes and photos and videos illustrates the ways that social media can enhance the power of smaller, less militarily powerful entities whose story resonates – for whatever combination of reasons – with a global audience. Hamas cannot achieve a military victory against Israel but it can mobilize international outpourings of rage, which hamper Israel’s diplomatic and economic relations with other states. The potential ramifications of this phenomenon are so serious that it can be argued that for Israel, at least, asymmetric war is not so asymmetric anymore.

This is because of the second part of the question at hand: the philosophical questions that surround conflict. Every country has to justify its use of force – failure to do so can have catastrophic effects, even if the country in question does not militarily lose a war. The United States went to war against Iraq to remove what turned out to be nonexistent WMDs. It destroyed Saddam’s army without any difficulty but it failed to justify its use of force. The consequences of that decision remain with us 15 years later. Iraq is regularly used as a rhetorical and political stick with which to beat the United States. Washington’s reluctance to become involved in preventing President Bashar al-Assad’s butchery in Syria can be traced back to the errors of Iraq.

And the United States is the most powerful country in the world. For a small state like Israel the need to justify its military actions is far more pressing. Israel is a large weapons exporter but at the same time it receives vast aid from the United States, and imports a lot of foreign weaponry and technology. It is not a superpower. It is a small country that needs others to support its military actions. Take that support away, and it could be in serious strategic trouble.

Jerusalem has proved time and again that it will go to war if it feels it necessary, and has traditionally justified this on principles: primarily, the right – especially following the Holocaust – to defend Jewish life at almost any cost; and its status as the only democracy in the Middle East. By and large, these arguments have been effective in what might be called the discursive war – the intellectual battle that takes place behind every justification for force. Of course, the discursive war is uneven. Israel wins it in Washington and London and Berlin but loses it in the entire Arab world and most of South America. But, simply put, Paris matters more than Panama; D.C. more than Djibouti.

And so the woman in Kentucky has listened to Israel argue for force on these principles and accepted them. Now she logs on to Twitter and sees dead children, dead nurses, and soldiers firing on what appear to be civilians. She no longer cares about seemingly abstract principles; she just doesn’t want to see any more corpses. Of course, corpses are as old as war itself. How many children, for example, did the United States and its allies kill in Iraq? The difference is now you can see them. In fact, go online and you cannot escape them.

In response, the IDF social media unit can produce images of Gazans hurling Molotov cocktails and rocks at its soldiers, of them setting kites on fire to burn nature preserves and farms, but those images cannot compete with the images of IDF soldiers firing live ammunition and dead Palestinians, even if many of them are discovered – much later in the social media news cycle – to be Hamas terrorists. During 2014’s Operation Protective Edge, a foreign bureau chief told Peter Lerner, former head of the IDF’s Spokesperson’s Foreign and Social Media Unit, “Peter, it’s the old rule: if it bleeds it leads.” Israelis weren’t bleeding so they weren’t leading. But, as Lerner told me unequivocally “We don’t want to bleed.”

Israel was and is damned: If it strikes Hamas targets embedded in civilian areas or among protesters marching toward its borders, it receives international condemnation, but if Hamas succeeds in kidnapping or killing any of its soldiers or civilians, Hamas wins again, by showing that Israel has “lost” to a much weaker force – all played out on social media and in real time. It is a lose-lose situation.

Israel unquestionably won the military battle. It unquestionably lost the information war.
Operation Protective Edge was a 51-day war – the longest in Israel’s history. Israel unquestionably won the military battle. It unquestionably lost the information war. And because of this fact it is hard to see how Israel can fight a war that long again without becoming a pariah.

One might argue that this is nothing new. Since its inception Israel has been vilified by its many enemies, and since 1967, by much of the world’s media, cheered on by a large portion of the global population, whose enmity toward the Jewish state is nourished by both religious and secular currents. The difference is that new information technologies are raising the possibility (even with a hugely supportive U.S. president now in power) that even its friends may struggle to support it in years to come.

Unlike Russia, Israel is a democratic state. It cannot pump out falsehoods – and it cannot manufacture gory Israeli casualties where none exist. Israel loses the global information war because it does not “bleed” enough – and as long as it maintains its military advantage, it never will.

Austrian Leader to Iranian President: ‘Questioning Israel’s Right to Exist Absolutely Unacceptable’

“Questioning Israel’s right to exist” or calling for the state of Israel’s destruction are absolutely unacceptable, Kurz told Rouhani.

By: United with Israel Staff

Austria’s chancellor had harsh words for visiting Iranian President Hassan Rouhani over the Islamic Republic’s declared desire to destroy the Jewish state and its flagrant anti-Semitism.

Speaking during a joint press conference in Vienna on Wednesday, Chancellor Sebastian Kurz reprimanded Rouhani over Iran’s blatant anti-Semitism, saying that his country “strongly” condemns “all forms of anti-Semitism as well as any form of down-playing or denial of the Holocaust.”

Iran is a global promoter of Holocaust denial, and even holds an annual cartoon festival which mocks that cataclysmic event in Jewish history.

Kurz underscored that Israel’s concerns regarding threats from Iran “have to be taken seriously. Austria is unconditionally committed to the security of Israel and its citizens.”

“Questioning Israel’s right to exist or a call for destruction of the state of Israel are absolutely unacceptable,” Kurz reportedly declared.

Yuval Rotem, the Director General of Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, welcomed Kurz’s “strong words confronting the Iranian call to destroy Israel.”

“All countries should adopt such a firm rejection of Iran’s aggressive words and deeds towards Israel,” he tweeted.

Iran does not recognize Israel and regularly calls for its destruction.

In a rally in Tehran last year, Iran unveiled a digital clock in the city’s Palestine Square counting down the days to what it says will be the destruction of Israel in 2040.

The time frame appears to stem from comments made in 2015 by Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who vowed there will be “nothing” left of Israel by the year 2040.

In September 2015, Khamenei proclaimed, “You [Israelis] will not see the coming 25 years and, God willing, there will not be something named the Zionist regime in next 25 years.”

He later tweeted in broken English, “Struggling, heroic and jihadi morale will leave no moment of serenity for Zionists.” Khamenei calls for Israel’s destruction almost on a weekly basis.

Most recently, Rouhani threatened Israel and stated that it can never feel safe, while calling for all Palestinians to “return to their homeland.”

“Israel can never feel that it is in a safe place,” Rouhani told reporters in June, as Iranians marked Quds Day by condemning Israel and chanting “death to Israel” and “death to America.”

Iran’s Terror Plot in Europe
Kurz also demanded “full clarification” from Rouhani on the case of Assadollah Assadi, a Vienna-based Iranian diplomat suspected of leading a plot to bomb an Iranian opposition rally in Europe.

Assadi was detained Sunday in Germany after a couple with Iranian roots was stopped in Belgium and authorities reported finding powerful explosives in their car.

Belgian authorities accuse Assadi of being part of a plot to set off explosives at a huge annual rally of the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq group in neighboring France. French police also detained a man of Iranian origin.

Following the arrest of the Iranian diplomat, Iran’s ambassador was summoned to the Austrian foreign ministry on Monday.

“We expect full clarification and I would like to thank you, Mr. President, that you have assured us of support for this clarification,” said Kurz, speaking alongside Rouhani.

Iran’s foreign minister dismissed the allegations as a ploy to disturb Rouhani’s visit to Europe.

Referring to the incident, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated Tuesday that the “Iranian terror plot was planned on the soil of Europe on the same week that the European leaders are supposed to meet the president of Iran about circumventing the sanctions on Iran.”

“Here’s my message to the European leaders. Stop funding the very regime that is sponsoring terrorism against you and against so many others. Stop appeasing Iran,” he concluded.

Iranian General Accuses Israel of Stealing its Clouds, Causing Drought

Jalali claimed Israel and “another country in the region” maintain joint teams “to ensure clouds entering Iranian skies are unable to release rain.”

By: United with Israel Staff

A senior Iranian general accused Israel of stealing its clouds to manipulate weather in the Islamic Republic and cause drought there.

Brigadier General Gholam Reza Jalali, head of Iran’s Civil Defense Organization said that the changing climate in Iran is “suspect,” AFP reported Monday.

“Foreign interference is suspected to have played a role in climate change,” said Jalali, who maintained that results from an Iranian scientific study “confirm” the claim.

He claimed Israel and “another country in the region” maintain joint teams “to ensure clouds entering Iranian skies are unable to release rain.”

“On top of that, we are facing the issue of cloud and snow theft,” he insisted.

Jalali cited a survey showing that all mountainous regions above 7,200 feet in areas between Afghanistan and the Mediterranean are covered in snow, except Iran.

Stealing Snow or Clouds: Impossible
The head of Iran’s meteorological service dismissed the general’s assertions. Specifically, Ahad Vazife said that Jalali “probably has documents of which I am not aware, but on the basis of meteorological knowledge, it is not possible for a country to steal snow or clouds”.

“Iran has suffered a prolonged drought, and this is a global trend that does not apply only to Iran,” Vazife said. “Raising such questions not only does not solve any of our problems, but will deter us from finding the right solutions”.

According to Iran’s meteorological center, 96 percent of Iranians suffer from some degree of drought, while up to 50 million may be forced to leave their homes as a result of the environmental damage. The year 2018 was the driest in Iran in over 67 years. The constant decline in precipitation indicates that the drought will continue and even get worse.

Last month, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu offered to help save Iranian lives by sharing water technology with them, while Iran rejected the offer.

Israel’s Foreign Ministry launched a website in Farsi aimed at sharing Israeli water technologies directly with the Iranian people, which provides tips on how to save water and improve use – unique methods which have been refined by Israelis over the decades.

This is not the first time Iran has accused another country of stealing its rain.

Former president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in 2011 accused Western countries of plotting to “cause drought” in Iran.

“European countries used special equipment to force clouds to dump” their water on their continent, he claimed

He also accused Western states of creating the HIV virus to weaken the developing world and create a market for pharmaceuticals.

Russia may assist Israel in placing limits on Iranian activities in Syria to avoid a direct aerial clash with Israel, former deputy national security council chief Chuck Freilich has told the Jerusalem Post.
As Syria reasserts control of its side of the Golan border and Israel, according to foreign reports, continued to target Iranian activities in Syria last week, Freilich said that, “the last thing Russia wants is one of its aircraft shot down by Israel. Then it would need to respond to that.”

Nearly three-quarters of Israelis believe the unreleased Middle East diplomatic plan of US President Donald Trump is doomed to failure, according to the monthly Peace Index poll of the Israel Democracy Institute and Tel Aviv University.
The poll, published Monday, found 73.8% of the general public believes there are low or very low chances that Trump’s plan could succeed, while 11.2% said the chances were “moderately high” and just 4.4% said very high. The percentage saying they did not know the details of the unpublished plan or declined to answer was only 10.6%.

Asked to what extent Israel’s interests were important to Trump, 77.3% of the general public said they were either moderately important or very important to the US president.
Interestingly, Arab respondents were more than four times as likely as Jewish respondents to say Israel’s interests were “very important” to Trump.

“Going abroad to Vienna led to big savings without the big balagan (mess),” said the 30-year-old Strauss, an Israeli-American who hails from New Jersey. “Airline tickets are often times super cheap because a lot of the European carriers, like EasyJet and Wizz Air, fly to Israel. And the hotels tend to be much better for the price.”

THE HONOR OF ISRAEL
This honor, and thus its weight, has a paradoxical effect, you see, to make me feel light at the same time as filling me with gravity and a sense of duty.

Honoris causa… 
These Latin words inevitably remind me of my years in France’s preparatory classes, in Paris, when I was studying for the entrance exam for the Ecole Normale Superieure and I was devouring Latin as the Jews of Netanya and Jerusalem, faithful to the lesson of Ezekiel, nourished themselves with the Hebrew square letters.
Be the first to know - Join our Facebook page.
But, since I am here, in the country of the Jews, please allow me to forget for a minute, this stiff latin of the academies and clerics.
You might even allow me to forget the Universitas Studiorum with its imperial togas and glorious memories, and rather to borrow from another nobility, one with other accents, and with differing mysteries of thought and knowledge.
And you might permit me to employ a word, in another language, yours, ours, and which, perhaps because I was for too long and too powerfully thrown into the Latin cauldron, alas I do not yet master, which serves this latin honor – and this word, this synonym, or this quasi synonym, is, you know better than me, the Hebrew word kavod.
Except that there is a nuance, even a difference, between honor and kavod.

Israel’s Economy is Booming Despite Growing Threat of War
https://israelunwired.com/israels-economy-thrives-threat-war/
By Leah Rosenberg -  July 2, 2018 2946 0
Israel’s economy is remarkable, especially given the fact that Israel is so young. But despite the booming economy, Israel faces the threat of war.
Israel's Economy is Booming but Threat of War Remains
https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=dLFtRBm0uiE

Take a look at Israel’s economy. It is truly unbelievable! The Jewish state has only been around for 70 years, but when you look at the economy, you would never know that Israel is so young. The 70 year old country is able to do what so many other nations cannot do. Israel is a nation of strong-willed individuals who don’t give up. When you have a country like that, nothing is impossible.

Israel is a star in the high tech industry. They invest a lot of time and energy into research, inventing, innovating, and creating what their people need as well as what the world needs.

Something that might be shocking is Israel’s GDP. The young Jewish state has climbed up to have one of the highest in the Middle East – about 42,000 USD!

Israel is not affected by the continuous world pressure. They continue to thrive, and their economy continues to grow.

Watch as Japanese tourists sing an incredible version of “Jerusalem of Gold” inside an Israeli shop!

“Jerusalem of Gold” is an all-time Israeli classic written by Naomi Shemer, one of the most famous singers in the history of the Jewish state.

This poetic masterpiece offers words of praise and gratitude to Jerusalem, Israel’s eternal capital, for the Jewish people’s return after a 2,000-year absence.

NY Democratic Congressional Candidate Accused Israel of a ‘Massacre’ in Gaza
An anti-Israel candidate who supports BDS unseated a veteran politician in a Democratic primary in New York’s 14th congressional district. 
By: JNS and United with Israel Staff
A Democratic Socialist who upset Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY) in a primary on Tuesday night previously said that Israel had committed a “massacre” in the Gaza Strip.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, 28, who soundly defeated Crowley as part of a party primary for New York’s 14th congressional district, is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, which supports the anti-Israel BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions)  movement.

In a May 14 tweet, Ocasio-Cortez said Israel’s killing of Palestinians along the Gaza border was a “massacre,” and that “no state or entity is absolved of mass shootings of protesters.”

“There is no justification. Palestinian people deserve basic human dignity, as anyone else,” she said. “Democrats can’t be silent about this anymore.”

The violent “March of Return” protests, orchestrated by the Palestinian Hamas terror group, began on March 30. On May 14, 62 Palestinians were killed in clashes with the IDF. Hamas leaders admitted that at least 50 of those killed were members of the terror group. Islamic Jihad claimed another three.

The primary victory of Ocasio-Cortez over Crowley—the No. 4 Democrat in the House of Representatives, who many viewed as vying for a top leadership position in the next year—may represent a broader shift in the Democratic Party towards the more progressive wing championed by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is also a socialist and has strongly condemned Israel’s actions in recent months.

Ocasio-Cortez, a former Bernie Sanders organizer during his 2016 campaign, caught fire with the party’s left wing.

“Congratulations to @Ocasio2018 on her extraordinary upset victory tonight! She took on the entire local Democratic establishment in her district and won a very strong victory. She demonstrated once again what progressive grassroots politics can do,” Sanders tweeted after her victory.

In a statement, the Jewish Democratic Council of America, congratulating Ocasio-Cortez on her victory, said it disagreed with her stance on Israel.

“We disagree with her past statement regarding Israel, as well as her affiliation with the Democratic Socialists of America, which supports the boycott, divestment and sanctions [BDS] movement targeting Israel. In the coming days and months, we hope to learn more about Ms. Ocasio-Cortez’s views, but at the moment, her position on Israel is not in line with our values.”
Ocasio-Cortez will face Republican Anthony Pappas in November. She has never held elected office.


Palestinian break the silence.
 https://www.freespeechtime.net/2018/02/watch-palestinian-man-admits-that.html
He attacks the boycott movement on Israel and claims that Israel is more helpful to Palestinians than any other country. 
The Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza are brainwashed to believe that all their problems were caused by Israel. 
All their problems were created by the failures and mistakes of the Palestinian leadership, which is now trying to topple responsibility on Israel. 
Israel supplies the Palestinians with water, food, electricity, aid and money. 
But they thank Israel by carrying out terror attacks "in the name of Allah.". 
Israel has a right to defend itself and its borders. 
The world is silent when terrorists attack Israel but screams when Israel defends itself.
WATCH 4,17MINS  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n0TznaxiVdI&ab_channel=RebelMedia

Every Western country must stand with Israel against radical Islamic terrorism. 
The Israeli people face the frighteningening escalation of Islamic terror acts through Israel. 
The Palestinian Authority refuses to take the most basic steps towards ensuring peace with Israel, and instead incites terrorism. 
Textbooks in Gaza and the West Bank teach children that Israel has no right to exist. 
They teach their children to hate Jews. 
The Hamas charter calls for the destruction of the State of Israel and the Jewish people. 

No one should have to live in fear as they drive home from work or walk home from school. This radical Islamic terrorism must stop. 
Israeli mothers shouldn’t have to fear sending their kids off to school. Israeli workers shouldn’t have to fear standing at a bus stop. Israeli children and visitors should be free to feel safe while walking through Jerusalem’s Old City. The people of Israel have a right to live in peace and security.
Israel built security fences and walls on all its borders after a wave of suicide bombings during the second intifada. 
The entire world was quick to condemn Israel for defending itself 
The world is silent when Palestinians influct pain and death upon Israel but screams when Israel protects itself. 

When Israel left the Gaza Strip, Gaza was free and all Jews were expelled. 
Hamas took control on the Gaza Strip, imposed sharia law and declared war on Israel with the declared goal of destroying the Jewish state. 
They fired tens of thousands of rockets at Israel, but the world turned a blind eye. 
Hamas, ISIS, and Al Qaeda share the same ideology of radical Islam. 
The Western world must stand with Israel in the war against radical Islamic terrorism.
Iran founded the Shiite terror organization Hezbollah in Lebanon with the declared aim of destroying Israel. 
During the first and second Lebanon wars, Hezbollah fired tens of thousands of rockets at civilian communities in northern Israel. 
Hezbollah's name means "an army of Allah." This Shiite terrorist organization is waging a war against Israel and threatens to kill 800,000 Israelis by bombing a chemical factory in Haifa (a historic Christian city in northern Israel). 
Every year thousands of Muslims take to the streets of London, Paris, Rome and other major cities in Europe, to declare loyalty to Hezbollah (Allah's army). 
They call it "Al Quds Day March" This holiday was founded by the leader of the Islamic Revolution of Iran. 
The Muslim mayor of London allowes this to take place in the capital of England. 
Shame on London, shame on Britain! 
Al Quds Day march must be banned in the West. 
The West must stop embracing Islam-based hatred of Israel.

ABSURD: Palestinians Participate in ‘No Money for Terror’ Summit
https://unitedwithisrael.org/absurd-palestinians-participated-in-no-money-for-terrorism-conference/?
It would almost be funny if it wasn’t so absurd – the PA, whose leaders pay salaries to imprisoned terrorist murderers participated in a conference titled “No Money for Terrorism!”
By: United with Israel and PMW

The Palestinian Authority (PA), whose leaders pay salaries to imprisoned terrorist murderers and to families of killed terrorists recently participated in a conference in Paris titled “No Money for Terrorism!”

The official Palestinian WAFA news agency reported last month that the PA attended a ministerial conference against terror funding, which was held in the French capital Paris and attended by 500 experts and some 80 ministers from 72 countries.
Palestinian Minister of Foreign Affairs Riyad Al-Malki and Head of the Palestinian Central Bank Azzam Al-Shawa represented the PA.

The conference concluded with a speech by French President Emmanuel Macron, in which he emphasized the significance of continuing the international efforts and cooperation against terror funding.
The PA was invited and participated in the conference despite that fact that the PA actively and openly uses its budget and also aid from donor countries to pay terrorists, while PA leaders ignore the condemnation by the international community.

The PA pays monthly salaries to around 6,500 imprisoned terrorists, as well as monthly allowances to the families of tens of thousands of killed terrorists, who the PA calls “martyrs.”

Indeed, the PA allocated over $350 million in its published 2018 budget for these expenditures. Despite international criticism, PA leaders vow to continue to pay terror-rewarding salaries, underscored Palestinian Media Watch (PMW).

PMW has documented that the PA spends money on monuments to terrorist murderers and the PA Ministry of Education has named 31 schools after terrorists, just to name a few of the many ways the PA spends money on terrorists and on immortalizing them.

The More You Kill, the More You Get
Rudy Giuliani, attorney to US President Donald Trump and former mayor of New York City, recently called the PA a “murder machine” and “a prime supporter of terrorism,” noting its financial support and glorification of terrorists.

The PA paid terrorists and their families more than $347 million in 2017, and increased terror incentives by $56 million to $403 million for 2018, with terror expenditures comprising some seven percent of the PA’s overall budget according to Israel’s Defense Ministry.

Palestinian prisoners serving 20-30 year sentences for carrying out terror attacks are eligible for a lifetime NIS 10,000 monthly stipend, the Defense Ministry said, citing PA figures.

Those who receive a three-to-five-year sentence get a monthly wage of NIS 2,000. Palestinian prisoners who are married, have children, live in Jerusalem or hold Israeli citizenship receive additional payments.

“The payment of money by the Palestinian Authority to terrorists who are convicted of terrorism is an absolute human rights outrage and a crime in and of itself,” Giuliani stated.

“To give money to people who slaughter innocent human beings, including children and women and innocent people of all kinds, is a direct contribution to terrorism… The fact that the Palestinian Authority does this, carries this out on a massive scale, is yet another indication that the Palestinian Authority is a prime supporter of terrorism, and therefore not entitled to be a state.”

Israel approves solar field to increase power supply to Gaza
Facility’s construction at the Erez Crossing will be funded by private Israeli and foreign elements; Israeli officials stress plan is a one-sided humanitarian move aimed at easing the crisis in the strip and is not part of an agreement with Hamas.

Images of Gaza’s residents eating to candlelight have become one of the symbols of the humanitarian crisis in the strip, but a new Israeli plan may change that situation.
Israel has approved a plan to build a solar field on Israeli territory to ease the electricity crisis in the Gaza Strip. The construction of the facility at the Erez Crossing will be funded by private Israeli and foreign elements.
Israeli officials stress that this is a one-sided humanitarian move which is not part of an agreement with Hamas.

The field’s construction, and further ideas to improve the humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip, were discussed in meetings held this week by US President Donald Trump’s envoys to the Middle East, Jason Greenblatt and Jared Kushner. The two met with leaders in the Gulf states, Jordan and Egypt, and held two long meetings with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over the weekend.
Another idea aimed at easing the humanitarian crisis in Gaza was discussed in meetings between Netanyahu and representatives of the defense establishment: Bringing some 6,000 laborers from Gaza to work in the Gaza vicinity. The idea has been rejected so far at the recommendation of the Shin Bet, citing a serious security threat.
Shin Bet officials believe that a mass entry of several thousand laborers from Gaza into Israel would serve Hamas’ intelligence collection system and would be used to smuggle funds for terrorist activity within and outside the strip.
According to state officials, the idea to build a solar field that would provide electricity to Gaza was raised by Israel in the beginning of 2018 at an international conference on the strip’s reconstruction held in Washington. The original idea was to build the solar fields on Egyptian territory, but the Egyptians made it clear that as long as Gaza wasn’t ruled by the Palestinian Authority, they would not allow the construction of such a project on their territory.

GAS DISCOVERY
Egyptian media reports that Italian energy company Eni is about to announce a massive offshore gas discovery in the coming few days have been enough to seen energy stocks on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (TASE) plunging. With an estimated 2,550 billion cubic meters (BCM) of gas, Noor would be three times larger than the Zohr gas field, over five times larger than Israel's Leviathan field and more than ten times the Tamar field. 
Italian co Eni is reportedly set to announce the Noor gas discovery, which will even dwarf the massive Zohr field.

Former Pink Floyd lead singer Roger Waters is locked in a battle with Munich’s mayor over stoking hatred of Israel.

Munich’s Mayor Dieter Reiter is locked in a battle with former Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters over his intense hatred of the Jewish state.

Reiter has vowed to block Waters’ performances in the city over Waters’ support of BDS and anti-Semitism.

Waters routinely calls for a boycott of Israel during live performances and sends balloons shaped like pigs with Stars of David into the crowd. The mayor, on the other hand, has led the charge against the BDS movement in Germany.

Reiter is working to ensure that anti-Semitism and BDS have no place, anywhere in Germany.

JUN 25, 2018 5:18 AM BY ROBERT SPENCER 34 COMMENTS
In the first paragraph, we learn that there were “attacks.” In the second paragraph, we learn that the attacks were carried out by “armed herdsmen.” In the fourth paragraph, we find that the herdsmen are “mostly Muslims,” while the victims are “predominantly Christians.” Never in this story do we learn that Nigerian Church leaders have characterized the attacks by Fulani herdsmen as a war “by Islam to eliminate Christianity” in Nigeria.
“Nigeria: Dozens killed, homes burned in Plateau State attacks,” by Stephanie Busari, CNN, June 24, 2018:

Lagos, Nigeria (CNN)At least 86 people have been killed in attacks in central Nigeria, police said, an incident that has the potential to exacerbate ethnic tensions in an increasingly volatile region.

The violence, thought to be carried out by armed herdsmen, flared on Saturday in Jos, the capital city of Plateau State, according to a police statement reported in local media Sunday.

“Eighty six persons all together were killed, six people injured, fifty houses burnt,” police spokesman Terna Tyopev was quoted as saying in local media reports.

Clashes between the nomadic Fulani herdsmen, who are mostly Muslims, and farmers, who are predominantly Christians, have rocked Nigeria’s Middle Belt since 2013 and are becoming more common….
