WATCH: IDF Vows to Prevent Hezbollah Underwater Incursions
Jan 2, 2019
Operation Northern Shield
Palestinian terror
When the time comes, Hezbollah fighters will be ready to penetrate the Galilee, “and they can do it by sea,” the terror group’s leader Hassan Nasrallah declared.

The IDF constantly prepares for all kinds terrorist attacks, including land and sea infiltrations. In December, the army launched Operation Northern Shield after exposing a Hezbollah attack tunnel running from Lebanon into Israel. Most recently, the IDF destroyed a fifth tunnel.

Thanks to the counterterrorism measures implemented by the navy, civilians can continue to enjoy underwater activities such as at Rosh Hanikra, which borders Lebanon, despite threats by Hezbollah to penetrate northern Israel.

Israel's Maritime Efforts to Stop Hezbollah Incursions

Amazing News From Israel To Start The New Year
By ONE FOR ISRAEL (Messianic Jews In Israel)
2019 kicked off with a lot of incredibly good news from Israel! A new dawn – even a new era – is breaking.

A very interesting season in the Israeli media
“Jesus was a classic Jew… the greatest Jew of all time… The very least he deserves from Israel is a city square named after him” wrote one impassioned Israeli journalist.1 There have been a plethora of articles and videos in the Israeli media, looking very favorably on the subject of Jesus and his story. This is indicative of a new era in Israeli attitudes towards Jesus. An entire documentary was devoted to exploring “Christianity in Israel”. A secular Jewish man and a religious Jewish woman interviewed believers from different backgrounds, including a priest who was born in a Jewish family and insisted that he is still Jewish. They found it bewildering but intriguing. At the end, they called Jesus their brother, and called for more appreciation of the Christian community living in the Holy Land.

I’ll be honest with you, we’re all a bit shocked by all this positivity!

Another article talked of “yet another sign that the centuries of bad blood between Jews and Christians is finally giving way to warmer relations.”2 Still another wrote at length about the virtues of Jesus as an important but overlooked Jewish historical figure, saying, “This land is the cradle of Christianity, and… Jesus was our flesh and blood, a Jewish superstar, the most influential Jew of all time.” Whether it’s in the main stream media or in personal conversations, we are noticing a significant shift in attitudes towards Jesus. This is fantastic news!

Onwards and upwards – Israel is booming
As we enter 2019, the nation continues to grow in numbers and success, with many Jewish people coming to the land, high life expectancy, and high birth rates. According to the Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics, the population grew by 2% to almost 9 million in total (74.3% of whom are Jewish and 20.9% Arab). 185,000 babies were born last year, and 28,000 came back to the land of their forefathers, making aliyah from all over the world.

Also in the news, the world has been blessed by Israeli innovations in conservation, medicine, agriculture and technology. Israelis have offered their expertise in crisis areas around the world, such as when Thai children got trapped in a cave, assisting with processing trauma after shootings and terror attacks, and also providing medical care for Syrian victims of the war over the border. The Israeli army has been working in partnership with believers in the “Good Neighbor” initiative to take care of the injured fleeing Syrian violence. A representative from the IDF has been profoundly impacted by these believers who are ready to lay down their lives to help the Syrians, just as the Israeli soldiers have been doing each night. But the believers had no weapons – only their Bibles. 

And at last, after many years of campaigning, a law was finally passed to prohibit paying for prostitution. There are many flaws in Israeli society, but we are seeing great breakthroughs and victories like this one. We praise God with the Jerusalem Institute of Justice who have been fighting on behalf of those trapped in sexual exploitation, and pray that it will lead to liberation for many.

The number of people visiting Israel in 2018 has broken all all tourism records
Since 2006, the number of tourists has more than doubled from 1.8 million to 4 million according to the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The top five nationalities of the tourists who came were British, German, Russian, French, and over one million came from the US. I’m sure our guests had a great time, and it’s also very good news for us. Israel is often portrayed in a bad light in the international media, either as terrifyingly dangerous (it’s not) or as an evil, genocidal apartheid state (definitely not!). The more people who come to see the truth for themselves, the better.

And by the way, if you’ve never been, do come! It’s an amazing and rich country, as many are discovering. ONE FOR ISRAEL offers tours where you can focus either on studying the Bible or serving the people; either way, you’ll see the sights and have a wonderful experience.

=> ONE FOR ISRAEL service trips

=> ONE FOR ISRAEL study tours

The Body of Messiah is growing in numbers and maturity
As our study found a couple of years ago, there are at least 30,000 Messianic believers that we know of attending congregations, but we know that there are many more besides under the radar. Our estimate is that there might be another 20,000 or so who do not attend any congregation, either because there isn’t one in their area, or as a result of the profound family and social implications that come with declaring faith in Jesus. Many are teenagers who are not allowed to attend a congregation, and might not even dare to ask permission.

Numbers that we do know for certain are how many times our evangelistic videos have been viewed (some 90 million times!) and even our Hebrew language videos have been seen over 25 million times – that’s more than three times the population of Israel! Many have come to faith though them, having been persuaded by the truth and seeing through the false arguments of the Rabbis against Jesus. The pressing need now is for good discipleship.

This year we are building a 30 session discipleship course that can be used all around the country, and continuing to train Jewish and Arab Israeli believers in their faith here at our Bible College. We are praise God for the increase in numbers, but we also want to see growth in maturity in the body of Messiah, and deeper knowledge of God and his word.

Don’t curse the darkness, light a match!
We are very much looking forward to what’s in store in 2019. Instead of trying to guess what the future holds and how good or bad this year might be, we are determined to shine as much light as we can!

There’s so much to praise God for and we want to be thankful at all times, noticing the good all around us each day. It’s also up to each one of us to do what we can, in the power of the Holy Spirit, to build the kingdom of God – no matter what others around us might be doing. The darkness is certainly getting darker in many respects around the world, but that just makes the light shine all the more clearly. We want to make as much impact as we can to prepare the way of the coming King.

Arise, shine, for your light has come!
The glory of Adonai has risen on you.
For behold, darkness covers the earth,
and deep darkness the peoples.
But Adonai will arise upon you,
and His glory will appear over you.
(Isaiah 60:1-2)

Israel’s Record-Breaking 2018

To all lovers of Zion, Israel is a remarkable country, with many friends to be sure, but also a cluster of enemies who view it as the embodiment of all things evil. So, to be able to see Israel’s record-breaking year in black and white statistics is a comfort.

It has been expected since early December, but Israel officially welcomed its four millionth tourist over the weekend – marking an unprecedented number of tourists who came to Israel in 2018.

According to statistics published in The Jerusalem Post, “Jerusalem leads the nation as the most sought after tourist destination, 40% of tourists coming in are landing on return visits and the majority of them are Christians [61%] followed by Jewish tourists [22%].” This represents an 11-percent increase over the 2017 tourism figure. Israel’s eternal capital has also been defined as the top global tourist destination, according to Euromonitor.

In yet another blow to the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement, which seeks to encourage companies and individuals from doing business or visiting Israel and includes pressuring performing artists and sports teams to boycott the country, 2018 also witnessed a record-breaking year in terms of exports. The 2018 figure was $110 billion, which represented an 8-percent increase over the 2017 total. Earlier in the year, S&P raised Israel’s credit rating to -AA, the highest the country has ever had. According to Ynet, “the raised rating is a very significant achievement for the Israeli economy and indicates confidence in the ability of the economy to grow and the government’s ability to maintain a responsible fiscal policy.”

Also in the economic sphere, Israel enjoyed a bumper year in mergers and acquisitions. Deals totaling $21.6 billion represented a 77-percent increase over the 2017 figure. This massive increase, did not even include exceptional deals of in excess of $15 billion, therefore excluding the huge acquisitions of Mobileye by Intel and of Actavis by Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd.

We cannot know what 2019 has in store for Israel, but 2018 has been remarkable for such a small country – both in population size and geographical area – to make such sustained gains in a wide array of fields.

Breakthrough for those trapped in prostitution
According to JIJ, there are some 14,000 women, men and children who are viciously exploited every day in Israel’s sex industry. But New Year’s Eve brought some very good news: the Israeli government passed a law making it a criminal offense to pay for prostitution, and supporting rehabilitation measures. The first time someone is caught, they will be fined 2,000 shekels ($534). The second time, that amount is doubled, but a third time can lead to a penalty of 75,300 NIS. Instead of criminalizing the sex workers, the law puts the penalty on those who exploit them.1
The YNet news agency reported that, “The justice minister can advocate an alternative to paying the fine, such as attending a workshop in order to raise awareness of the harm caused those trapped in a cycle of prostitution and to educate on the subject in order to prevent a repeat offense.”2
Aliza Lavie, who heads the subcommittee on the fight against prostitution and trafficking in women, described the breakthrough as:
“An emotional moment, that will help define the State of Israel as a society, as who we are and what our values are.”

Lavie, Knesset Member for the Yesh Atid (‘there is a future’) party, continued by saying, “Israel joins a list of countries who have made it clear that prostitution is an unacceptable norm, with disastrous consequences. The law rights a wrong that has been going on for too many years, and will help reduce the demand for prostitution that is the driving force behind this industry, through rehabilitation and reintegration into society of women and girls trapped in prostitution.”

Freedom for the captives
Join us in praying these powerful words from Isaiah, fulfilled in our Messiah, over those living in bondage here in Israel:

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me,
    because the Lord has anointed me
to bring good news to the poor;
    he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim liberty to the captives,
    and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
 to proclaim the year of the Lord‘s favor,
    and the day of vengeance of our God;
    to comfort all who mourn;
 to grant to those who mourn in Zion—
    to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes,
the oil of gladness instead of mourning,
    the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit;
that they may be called oaks of righteousness,
    the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified.

Isaiah 61:1-3

ONE FOR ISRAEL - Because the best way to bless Israel is with Jesus
HomeVideos & ArticlesNewsHide and Seek: Archaeological Discoveries of 2018 Shed Light on the Bible

Hide And Seek: Archaeological Discoveries Of 2018 Shed Light On The Bible
By ONE FOR ISRAEL (Messianic Jews In Israel)
Just as 2018 was drawing to a close, an unsuspecting woman in Beit She’an, Israel, was taking a stroll after a particularly heavy downpour. Suddenly, she noticed some ancient sculptures (which later turned out to be from the late Roman period) sticking out of the mud, revealed after more than one and a half thousand years by the rain.1

Like a game of hide and seek, it’s almost comedic how often priceless archaeological treasures pop up in this ancient land! And very often they bring a message or insight of some kind.

Here’s a review of some of the most exciting archaeological findings from 2018:

Pilate’s ring
The day after the Prime Minister of Pakistan declared that there is no historical evidence for Jesus,2 archaeologists from Hebrew University revealed that the ring of Pontius Pilate had been discovered near Bethlehem! This timely discovery adds further credence to the already substantial historical and archaeological evidence for Jesus, and what the New Testament has written about him. And what remarkable timing! The ring itself was found some 50 years ago along with many other artifacts, but only now have experts managed to decipher the name on the ring:

“The famous name on it was discerned after a thorough cleansing, when it was photographed with the use of a special camera at the Israel Antiquities Authority labs. The inscription on what was apparently a stamping ring included a picture of a wine vessel surrounded by Greek writing translated as saying “Pilatus.’”3 

The name was very rare, the ring belonged to a man of high status who was in the cavalry, and the dating fits. They are confident that it did indeed belong to the Pontius Pilate of the New Testament. Did God orchestrate events to reveal this ring right after that ludicrous statement denying historical evidence for Jesus? We shouldn’t be surprised!

Seals of Hezekiah and Isaiah
Two important seals were discovered this year in Jerusalem, bearing the names of two important men: one was King Hezekiah, and the other was Isaiah. The seal of King Hezekiah was discovered close to Hezekiah’s tunnel in the City of David, and the other was found earlier in the year with what appeared to be the name of Isaiah the Prophet. However, the seal was missing a piece and it is not clear whether it in fact was Isaiah the Prophet or another Isaiah. However, we can say for sure that Isaiah was not only a contemporary of Hezekiah, but according to the Bible, the two men knew each other, met together, and Isaiah gave Hezekiah counsel. The discovery caused people to reflect on Isaiah and his prophecies, with one mainstream news source explaining why Isaiah 53 is seen as a prophecy about Jesus!

Temple tax silver shekel “beka” weight
A weight to measure silver for the temple tax was found this year.4 Exodus 38:25-26 tells us that God required half shekel temple tax due from each member of the community, regardless of whether they were rich or poor: “

The silver from those numbered from the congregation was 100 talents and 1,775 shekels, according to the Sanctuary shekel—that is, a beka, or half a shekel per head, according to the shekel of the Sanctuary, for everyone who was recorded, from 20 years old and upward, for 603,550 men.” 
Refuting Rabbinic Objections to Christianity & Messianic Prophecies Kindle Edition

The tiny weight (5.5 grams / 0.2 ounces) was inscribed with the Hebrew letters spelling beka and was discovered in archaeological excavations near Robinson’s arch, where the temple once stood. This silver half shekel tax is significant for a number of reasons.

Silver represents redemption of a life (consider the lives of Joseph and Jesus were exchanged for silver coins). We can also see the significance in the Tabernacle where the bases upon which the poles rest are all made of silver. The poles are made of wood, overlaid in gold, and resting in silver. This is like us as corruptible humanity (wood), wrapped in God’s holiness (gold), and resting in the redemption that Jesus bought for us (silver).

Even though rich and poor paying the same amount might go against our sense of fair play, it speaks volumes about the equal value of each life before God. We were all redeemed for the same price: The blood of Yeshua the Messiah.

Oldest known inscription of Jerusalem
An ancient column, dated to 100 BC, was found, with the word Jerusalem inscribed in Hebrew. This exciting discovery is the oldest known example with the name “Jerusalem” fully spelled out in this manner. The artifact proves that Jewish people were indeed in the land at that time, and that there were Hebrew speakers living and working in Jerusalem. Along with an ancient Roman pillar found in 2016 marked with the word “Judea”, it’s getting harder and harder to say that the Jewish people have no connection to the land. They very evidently do, and archaeological discoveries are proving it again and again.

Figurine from time of ancient Israel

The perfectly preserved head of an ancient but tiny figurine from the ninth century BC was found earlier this year. “We’re guessing [it’s] probably a king, but we have no way of proving that,” said Robert Mullins, Ph.D., lead archaeologist at Abel Beth Maacah and chair and professor in Azusa Pacific’s Department of Biblical and Religious Studies.5 According to Mullins, radiocarbon dating suggests the sculpture was made some time between 902-806 B.C. “Given that the head was found in a city that sat on the border of three different ancient kingdoms, we do not know whether it depicts the likes of King Ahab of Israel, King Hazael of Aram-Damascus, or King Ethbaal of Tyre, rulers known from the Bible and other sources. The head represents a royal enigma.” The hunt will go on to find the identity of the mystery king from the days of ancient Israel!

Who knows what we’ll dig up in 2019?

Israeli aircrafts struck an arms depot west of Syria's capital city of Damascus from Lebanese airspace, Syrian state media reported Tuesday. According to reports, three Syrian soldiers were wounded in the attack which targeted Hezbollah depots. 

A report in the American weekly Newsweek said several senior Hezbollah officials were wounded in the alleged attack.

Citing a Department of Defense source familiar with the details of the attack via senior Israeli representatives, the report said Israeli aircrafts struck a few minutes after the officials had gotten on board a plane to Iran.

On Wednesday, Russia criticized the airstrikes, saying they had endangered civilian flights.

The Israeli official said, however, that Israel alerted Russia about the airstrikes ahead of time

Netanyahu: Israel Will Not Be Deterred From Acting In Syria, or Anywhere Else
https://unitedwithisrael.org/netanyahu-israel-will-not-be-deterred-from-acting-in-syria-or-anywhere-else/?We will act against [Iran] vigorously and continuously,” Netanyahu said less than 24 hours after a series of aerial strikes on targets in Syria, including Iranian munitions warehouses.


Israel will not accept Iran’s military entrenchment in Syria which is directed against it, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reiterated Wednesday afternoon as he spoke at the the IAF pilots’ course graduation ceremony at Hatzerim Air Force Base in the Negev.

“I have said that we will not be deterred from doing what is necessary. Therefore, we are called upon and we act,” Netanyahu said.

The prime minister added that U.S. President Donald Trump’s recent decision to withdraw American soldiers from Syria would not change Israel’s policy.

“We are standing steadfast on our red lines in Syria and everywhere else,” he said.

Turning to Operation Northern Shield, Israel’s exposure and demolishing of Hezbollah attack tunnels crossing the border from Lebanon, Netanyahu said the IDF was “eliminating Hezbollah’s terrorist tunnels one after the other.

“They think they can produce weapons of destruction against us, but we can overcome them with stratagems, daring and determination,” he said.

Israel, Netanyahu continued was developing “special capabilities that no other country in the Middle East has, and I tell you that some of them, no other country in the world has.”

Those special capabilities he said included weapons systems, defensive systems and offensive missiles that can reach “any target anywhere.

“In the history of the Middle East, there has never been aerial activity such as this. Aircraft ascend and descend, take off and land, and reach arenas both near and far, very far,” Netanyahu said.

Palestinians to Christians in Gaza: No Holidays for You!
Dec 25, 2018
Hamas continues to oppress Christians living under its rule, while Israel works to facilitate their right to religious freedom. 
By: United with Israel Staff

Islamic terrorists in the Gaza Strip have warned local Christians against celebrating their end-of-the-year holidays.

The Popular Resistance Committees, a coalition of armed Palestinian terror groups, published a flyer featuring a burning Christmas tree and threats in Arabic forbidding the Christian celebrations, according to The Jerusalem Post.

The flyer from the Al-Nasser Salah al-Deen Brigades features a verse from the Quran, warning Muslims “not to go the way of the Jews and the Christians” because “indeed God is not for the evil people.”

The terror organization cautioned that it is “absolutely forbidden” to celebrate the holidays in any capacity, and the Jerusalem Post cited a  Gaza government source as saying that the flyer was aimed at both Muslims and Christians living in Gaza.

Hamas, the Islamic terror group that rules the Strip, has in previous years issued notices to restaurants and hotels, banning establishments from throwing New Year’s Eve celebrations.

Before Hamas took over Gaza in 2007, the Christian population in the coastal enclave was over 3,000. Today, just 1,000 Christians remain, most of them Orthodox.

Christians and their property have occasionally come under attack since Hamas seized power.

Christians in Israel Celebrate Freely
While the Christian population is shrinking under Palestinian rule, it is steadily growing in Israel, the only country in the Middle East that safeguards Christians and enables them to practice their faith freely and safely.

Israeli authorities have worked to facilitate Palestinian celebrations, easing security restrictions in honor of the season’s holidays.

In Israel, Christian pilgrims and locals held mass celebrations on Monday night at various locations throughout Israel to celebrate the holidays.

Netanyahu on U.S. Syria Pullout: Israel Will Expand Military Action Against Iran if Needed
Prime minister says Trump's decision will not affect Israel's policy ■ Remarks come after army chief says development is 'significant,' but shouldn't be overblown
Dec 23, 2018 1:36 PM

After Mattis quits, Israel loses an island of sanity in the roiling Trump administration
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday that the American military withdrawal from Syria will not affect Israel's policy toward the war-torn country.

"The decision to withdraw 2,000 U.S. troops from Syria will not change our consistent policy: We will continue to act against Iran's attempts to entrench itself militarily in Syria, and to the extent necessary, we will even expand our actions there." Netanyahu said at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting. 

In an abrupt policy shift, Trump announced on Wednesday that Washington would withdraw the roughly 2,000 U.S. troops from Syria, upending a pillar of American policy in the Middle East and alarming U.S. allies.

"I would like to reassure those who are concerned. Our cooperation with the US will continue in full and finds expression in many areas: Operations, intelligence and many other security spheres," Netanyahu said.

Israeli army Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot also commented on U.S. President Donald Trump's decision Sunday, saying it is "significant," but should not be overblown. 

The decision was followed on Thursday by the surprise departure of U.S. Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, who in a resignation letter to Trump laid bare the growing divide between the two over foreign policy.

Imagine stepping off a plane at Ben Gurion Airport in Israel. You get your luggage, and as you walk through the airport to leave.  And then, you experience the most awesome flash-mob performance EVER!

Ben Gurion Airport
You might think of top notch security when you think about Ben Gurion Airport. That’s probably what comes to mind for most people. When you enter and leave the airport, there is security that you know and don’t know about.

So you can imagine how surprised the airport goers were when they were confronted with such a professional and entertaining flashmob!

150 dancers, singers, and musicians from the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance took part in this flashmob. They did it to welcome participants of the Birthright program. Birthright has many different programs, and this one had participants who have never stepped foot in Israel. What a welcome this was!

Birthright Israel arranged the flashmob. Aside from welcoming the Birthright participants, they organized the performance for Israel’s 70th birthday as well as Birthright Israel’s 18th anniversary.

What’s even more magnificent is the amount of Jews greeted by this flashmob – over 2,000 Jews from all over the world!

Flashmobs in Israel
It’s not uncommon to have flashmobs in Israel. Israelis love to have fun – anytime and anywhere. Even in an airport! Sometimes, the flashmob will be on the Jerusalem light rail and involve people singing hatikvah. Other times, it might not even be considered a flashmob. But Israelis will just randomly dance together in the streets without knowing each other! Whatever it is, it’s beautiful to see Jewish people coming together to put smiles on the faces of all those watching.

Opinion Young American Jews Would Engage More With Israel if Birthright Stopped Lying About the Occupation
Showing the truth won’t alienate Birthright trip participants from Israel. But offering a sanitized, whitewashed Israel patronizes young Jews’ curiosity and intelligence – and sets them up for dissonance and disengagement

I have been a Birthright participant and trip leader and an on-campus Israel advocacy professional, and I'll never forget the first time I visited the West Bank.

Israeli Army Probing Death of Two Palestinian Teens in Gaza Warning Missile Strike
The two, aged 15 and 16, were killed in July during a so-called 'roof knocking' attack – when Israel fires small missiles shells onto roofs of buildings ahead of a wider strike

U.S. adopts Israeli tactic employed in Gaza war in fight against ISIS
UN report finds: Israel's 'roof-knock' warning no way to prevent civilian casualties
ICC prosecutor: Significant progress toward decision about investigating Israeli actions in Gaza, West Bank
The Israeli military is investigating the death of two Palestinian teens during an Israeli strike in the Gaza Strip last July, Haaretz has learned.
The two, 15-year-old Amir al-Nimrah and 16-year-old Luai Kahil, were killed while sitting on a rooftop at the Shati refugee camp in the northern Gaza Strip on July 14, as Israel and Hamas were locked in a flare-up.
The two teens were killed in what Israel calls "roof tapping" or "roof knocking" – firing small missiles at a roof of a building, creating a small explosion to warn the residents of an impending wider attack. Israel has also used this tactic in other campaigns in Gaza, such as Operation Cast Lead in December 2008 and January 2009 as well as Operation Pillar of Defense in 2012.
The probe was launched following an investigation carried out by the human rights organization B’Tselem and the Forensic Architecture London-based research group. A video published by the two organizations combines aerial photographs and photos published by the Israeli army on the day of the attack.

On the day of the attack, the IDF Spokesperson said that the structure at the refugee camp "served as the Palestinian national library, a huge abandoned building near Nasser Street." The IDF added that the building's five stories were "meant for the use of Gaza residents, for public and government services [or] housing," but that it had been converted to a Hamas training compound."  The building, the army added, serves as a training ground "for urban warfare… and for survival in tunnels – thanks to an attack tunnel that was dug under it."

Asked again for comment, the army spokesman's office issued a statement on Wednesday in which it acknowledged that, following the attack, there were reports that the two teens had been killed. "An investigation showed that, at the time of the [missile] fire, no people were spotted on the roof of the building. The findings of the investigation are currently being examined by the Military Advocate General's office."
Before the attack, various steps were taken to minimize possible harm to civilians, including the roof tapping the statement said. "Contrary to what had been claimed, the [army] probe was carried out immediately following the event and not as the result of new information being received."
The roof-tapping tactic had been discontinued for several years because crowds of Palestinians would gather on the rooftops to try to prevent the demolitions of buildings.

After the 2014 conflict, a group of U.S. military experts from the Pentagon arrived in Israel to learn about the operation and the IDF's attempts to minimize civilian casualties.

A UN Human Rights Council commission of inquiry's report on 2014's Operation Protective Edge concluded that while the method "may have been effective" in minimizing civilian casualties in specific instances, "'roof-knocks' cannot be considered an effective warning given the confusion they often cause to building residents and the short time allowed to evacuate before the actual strike."

Israelis Sending Bible, Israeli Flag to the Moon

Israel’s Beresheet, the first non-governmental craft in the world to go to the moon, is sending a time capsule containing Israeli national symbols and cultural artifacts into space.

By: United with Israel Staff

The Israeli SpaceIL group and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) presented on Monday a time capsule that will travel to the moon with the first Israeli spacecraft.

The time capsule consists of three discs, each containing hundreds of digital files, which will launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida, in February.

The files traveling to the moon include Israeli national symbols, like Israel’s Declaration of Independence, the Bible, Israel’s national anthem “Hatikvah” and the Israeli flag.

The time capsule also includes cultural objects and materials, such as paintings collected from the public over the years for sending to the moon, dictionaries in 27 languages and encyclopedias as an indication of knowledge accumulated by humanity, Israeli songs, books of art and science and Israeli literature, information about Israeli scientific and technological discoveries and developments that influenced the world, and photos Israel’s landscapes and of leading figures in Israeli culture.

The time capsule, along with the spacecraft, will remain on the Moon indefinitely, even after completing Israel’s first lunar mission. With no plans to return to Earth, the spacecraft and information within the time capsule’s disks could possibly be found and distributed by future generations.

In February, the spacecraft, recently named Beresheet (the Hebrew word for Genesis), will launch alongside other satellites as a secondary payload on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. The precise launch date remains undetermined, as SpaceIL awaits final confirmation from the launch company.

‘Another Step on Our Way to the Moon’
“This is another step on our way to the moon,” said Ido Anteby, CEO of SpaceIL. “Inserting the disks into the spacecraft, which is a real time capsule, indicates the spacecraft’s readiness to blast off from the launch site in a few weeks.”

SpaceIL’s crews and IAI have completed testing of the spacecraft and its systems, and are preparing for the “beginning of the amazing and complex journey that exemplifies innovation, creativity and courage,” he added.

Yonatan Winetraub, one of three SpaceIL founders, said, as he inserted the time capsule into a spacecraft that “this is a very emotional moment. We do not know how long the spacecraft and the time capsule will remain on the moon. It is very possible that future generations will find this information and want to learn more about this historic moment.”

Opher Doron, IAI’s Space Division General Manager, noted the pride in being the first non-governmental entity in the world to go to the moon.

The spacecraft successfully completed a series of recent tests to examine the integration

Saudi hack attack? Twitter tumbles on concerns over 'suspicious traffic'
Efforts to improve the relationship between Israel and Saudi Arabia have been seriously hindered after Riyadh fired two Saudi officials leading the project over suspected involvement in the murder of dissident Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, The Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday.

One of the officials, former media adviser to the court Saud al-Qahtani, issued directives to the Saudi press with the goal of improving Israel's image. The two countries have no diplomatic ties and anti-Israel sentiments are widespread in the kingdom.

The other official, also a former close aide to Prince Mohammed bin Salman and a subordinate of al-Qahtani, reportedly made several secret trips to Israel to look into employing Israeli surveillance technology, sources familiar with the matter told the Journal. The alleged visits would make former deputy intelligence chief Ahmed al-Assiri the most senior Saudi official to ever set foot in Israel.

Al-Qahtani, however, "was the key player in all of this," the report quoted a Saudi official as saying. The former court adviser sought out spyware made by Israeli firm NSO Group and its Luxembourg-based affiliate, Q Cyber Technology, which signed a $55-million deal to sell cyber surveillance tools to Riyadh, the report says.

A Haaretz investigation revealed in October that NSO negotiated the sale of advanced cyber-attack capabilities with Saudi Arabia, a deal that The Washington Post says was authorized by the Israeli government. NSO said in response that "the company develops products that are sold only to authorized government entities."
A month after Haaretz revealed the sale, NSO found itself targeted by a lawsuit launched by Montreal-based Saudi activist Omar Abdulaziz, who claims that the firm's software was used to hack his cellphone in order to track conversations with Khashoggi. 

According to the Journal, Mossad Director Yossi Cohen held several meetings with Saudi officials over the past year. One of these meetings, facilitated by the U.S., brought together Egyptian, Jordanian and Palestinians intelligence officers in June. Sources also said Israel, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates now "regularly share intelligence of shared threats," including matters related to Iran.

The Saudi government has also facilitated business between the two countries, according to the report. People familiar with the process told WSJ special waivers have been issued to Israeli businessmen, so that they may visit the country without using their Israeli passports.

The mission to forge closer ties between Saudi Arabia and Israel, which the Journal calls "a secretive U.S.-backed initiative," has also been impeded by the Saudi crown prince's own alleged role in the murder.

Citing people familiar with the situation, the report says that the international outcry following the killing hampered the prince's "room to maneuver among prospective rivals and dampened appetite for risky foreign policy endeavors such as the outreach to Israel."

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said last week that while the murder of Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul is "horrific," it does not outweigh the strategic importance of Saudi Arabia.

"What happened in Istanbul is nothing short of horrific. But it’s balanced by the importance of Saudi Arabia and the role it plays in the Middle East," Netanyahu told foreign reporters at an event in Jerusalem.

"Because if Saudi Arabia would be destabilized, the world, not the Middle East, will be destabilized," Netanyahu said.

Netanyahu's response was similar to comments made by U.S. President Donald Trump during an interview to Reuters. "I really hope that people aren't going to suggest that we should not take hundreds of billions of dollars that they're going to siphon off to Russia and to China, primarily those two, instead of giving it to us," he said, while discussing the murder of Khashoggi.

"You're talking about hundreds of thousands of jobs. You're talking about huge military and other contracts. I hope that's not going to be a recommendation," he concluded.

Turkey accused the United States late November of trying to turn a blind eye to the murder of Khashoggi, and dismissed comments from Trump on the issue as "comic".

Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said: "This is a humanitarian issue. It concerns a murder. It is not possible to say 'our trade will increase, let's cover this up, let’s ignore it.'"

Hamas Celebrates 31 Years of Terror, Hate, and Destruction
 Hamas celebrated the mass carnage and terrorism it has conducted against Israeli citizens since its inception, vowing to carry on its war against the Jewish State until it is eliminated.

By: United with Israel Staff
Thousands of Hamas members and supporters participated on Sunday in a rally organized by the Palestinian terror organization in Gaza to commemorate the 31st anniversary of its establishment, one of a series of events and rallies to celebrate the occasion.

Hamas was founded in 1987, soon after the First Intifada broke out, as an offshoot of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood.

Hamas terrorists in military fatigues paraded alongside children with rockets and heavy machine guns during the rally.

“Hamas is teaching a new generation of Palestinian children to hate their neighbors,” the IDF stated.

The Islamist group claimed that a large turnout reflects widespread support despite domestic and external challenges.

Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh praised a recent series of deadly attacks against Israel in Judea and Samaria. He said such attacks are “a response” to the anticipated American peace proposal that Palestinians believe will favor Israel.

Hamas has “fought off the US projects represented by the “Deal of the Century” that poses serious and strategic threats to the Palestinian cause and the regional interests,” the terror group stated. “The US-adopted project was planned to legitimize the Israeli occupation at the expense of the national rights and interests of the Palestinian people.”

Haniyeh also called on Palestinian Authority (PA) head Mahmoud Abbas to meet in Gaza or Cairo to end a decade of bloody inter-Palestinian feuding.

“Hamas reiterates a full rejection of all forms of normalization with the Israeli occupation, under whatever pretexts that may be adopted. Normalization is an awful crime and a stab in the back of the Palestinian people,” Hamas stated.

Israel’s Foreign Ministry responded by tweeting that “31 years since this terror organization was formed, Hamas continues to rob Palestinians of their future and Gaza of its’ resources, sowing death, hatred and destruction for both Israelis and Palestinians.”

For its 28th anniversary, Hamas published a special file which included a recounting of its “successes” against Israel: the firing of 16,377 rockets at Israel, 86 suicide bombings that murdered hundreds, 36 stabbing attacks, over 500 infiltration attacks, over 250 sniper attacks, over 80 attacks on Israeli armored targets and 26 abductions of live or dead Israelis since its inception in 1987.

The numbers have since grown.

The Israeli army said on Sunday that over the weekend it found a Hezbollah attack tunnel crossing from Lebanon into Israel, the fourth discovered in recent weeks.

Israeli army spokesman added that though the tunnel no longer constitutes a threat, it has been rigged with explosives.

He warned that whoever enters it from the Lebanese side is risking their life, amd accused Lebanon of violating UN Security Council resolution 1701, which ended the 2006 Second Lebanon War, and the sovereignty of Israel.

The discovery of a third tunnel crossing into Israeli territory was announced on Tuesday by the Israeli army, a week after Israel launched Operation Northern Shield, aimed at destroying cross-border tunnels constructed by Hezbollah.

Lebanese president said last week that Israel's operation to destroy Hezbollah attack won't endanger the calm along the frontier. Michel Aoun, a Hezbollah ally, said that Lebanon takes the tunnel issue "seriously" and is prepared to "take measures to remove causes of disagreement" after receiving full report on the situation.

Aoun added that the U.S. has informed Lebanon that Israel has "no aggressive intentions," and also noted that his country too has "no aggressive intentions."
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said after the revelation of the third tunnel: "Hezbollah thought it was digging uninterrupted. We knew about it and planned it [to launch Operation Northern Shield] and it didn't leak. We're carrying out exactly what we planned, but we are also prepared for setbacks."

The premier spoke after holding a security assessment in the Northern Command along with IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot and other senior commanders. Netanyahu, who is the acting defense minister following the resignation of Avigdor Lieberman, received a security briefing on the current progress in the operation to destroy the tunnels.

ANALYSIS: Did Iran order recent terror attacks against Israelis?
Evidence points to the fact that PA Arabs have become part of the Iranian Axis.

Yochanan Visser, 13/12/18 23:23
Terror attack at Ofra junctionOfer Meir/Flash 90
Judea and Samaria, a.k.a. the 'West Bank,' is once again experiencing an uptick in terror attacks by Palestinian Arabs.

This week Arab terrorists not only carried out two deadly drive-by shooting attacks on groups of Israelis near the village of Ofra Sunday evening and Thursday afternoon but also staged a number of stabbing and car ramming attacks on Israeli security personnel in Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria.

“A volcano of violence is waiting to erupt in the 'West Bank',” Israeli journalist Anna Ahronheim wrote while repeating the trope blaming high unemployment and a lack of “hope” for the escalating violence.

Citing data released by the Israel Security Agency, or Shin Bet, Ahronheim reported 109 terror attacks in Jerusalem, Samaria, and Judea in October alone compared to 80 in September.

These attacks included the use of improvised explosive devices, arson attacks, fire bombings, car ramming attacks, shootings, and stabbings.

“Incitement in Palestinian media against Israel, including by PA President Mahmoud Abbas, has not helped calm the situation,” according to Ahronheim, who also claimed the economic situation in territories controlled by the Palestinian Authority (PA) has become more difficult since the United States decided to withhold funds for the PA and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA).

Indeed, Abbas continues to incite Palestinian Arabs against Israel and has again threatened to cease security cooperation with the Israeli security forces in Judea and Samaria.

On Wednesday Arutz 7 reported that “Abbas would hold a series of urgent diplomatic contacts with Arab and international elements over the next few days in order to spur them to act against the dangerous Israeli escalation that is manifested in incursions into Palestinian Authority cities, continuing the crimes of the settlers and the desecration of the holy places."

The PA furthermore announced it would make "important and decisive decisions if the Israeli incursions and attacks continued in Palestinian Authority cities, but refrained from specifying their nature.”

The PA statement omitted the fact that these “incursions and attacks” were the result of an Israeli manhunt for the murderers of unarmed civilians Kim Levengrond-Yehezkel, 29, of Rosh Ha’ayin, and Ziv Hagbi, 35, from Rishon Lezion who were murdered in cold blood by a 23-year-old Palestinian terrorist in the Barkan industrial zone near the town of Ariel last October.

The PA also didn’t mention the manhunt for the murderers of Amiad Israel a Jewish baby who died of his wounds four days after his pregnant mother was shot at the bus stop in Ofra and after doctors in Jerusalem tried to save his and her lives by conducting an emergency Caesarean section operation.

The Shin Bet, working in coordination with the IDF and Israeli police, on Wednesday evening apprehended four Palestinian Arabs suspected of conducting the shooting attack in Ofra, eliminating a fifth one who opened fire at the Israeli security forces.

Several hours later, Israeli security forces shot dead Ashraf Walid Suleiman Na’alowa, the terrorist who murdered the two Jewish Israelis in the Barkan Industrial Zone of Ariel.

Na’alowa was reportedly preparing for a new terrorist attack and tried to evade his attempted arrest, which took place in the city of Nablus (Shechem) in Samaria after a large-scale intelligence operation involving the use of cutting-edge technology.

“The finding of Na’alowa, which was carried out by the ISA, IDF and Israel Police anti-terror unit, was the culmination of a ramified intelligence effort led by the ISA, and which included various intelligence, operational and technological capabilities. The ISA investigated several suspects who had aided – or were aware of – Na’alowa's activity. Several suspects have already been tried,” according to a Shin Bet press release.

However, the escalating terror in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria is not the result of a lack of hope or the prevalence of poverty among Palestinian Arabs.

Hamas politburo member Khalil al-Hayya said this week that his organization is spreading the so-called “Ground Zero Operation” from Gaza to the ‘West Bank’

"Our people need unity...and not security coordination with the occupation.” Hayya stated while calling upon his fellow Palestinian Arabs in Judea and Samaria to “fight the occupation in all forms.”

Islamic Jihad, one of Iran’s Palestinian proxies, later released a statement in which it agreed with Hamas and claimed that the recent uptick in terror attacks in Judea and Samaria would “revive resistance everywhere.”

The Palestinian terror groups in Gaza have simply become part of the Iranian axis which is constantly trying to deprive Israel of tranquility.

The Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps was responsible for the rocket barrage that hit Israel on November 12, according to IDF spokesman Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus.

Conricus said at the time that Islamic Jihad orchestrated the missile onslaught while working “under guidance, instructions, and incentives from Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Quds Force, based in Damascus.”

Iran is also working in tandem with Hamas to keep up the pressure on Israel and in 2012 founded the terror organization Harakat al-Sabireen Nasran li-Filastin,” or The Movement of the Patient Ones for the Liberation of Palestine.

Sabireen is a Shiite faction in Gaza and has between 400 and 3,000 fighters at its disposal. It receives $10 million in funding annually from the Mullahs.

In response to the missile attacks on southern Israel, the Israeli air force (IAF) launched 150 strikes and destroyed much of the terror infrastructure in Gaza within two days without causing civilian casualties and without the IDF launching a ground operation - this time.

Since then, the southern front has been relatively quiet, most likely because Hamas and the other Palestinian terror movements in Gaza don’t have the capability to continue their war against Israel at the present time.

At the same time, Hezbollah, which is also operating on orders of the Quds Force, was dealt a devastating blow when the IDF started Operation Northern Shield, the destruction of the Iranian-financed attack tunnel project underneath Israel’s border with Lebanon

It is therefore reasonable to conclude that Iran has now ordered Hamas to shift its focus to the front in Judea and Samaria.

The deaths extend a violent week that began with a shooting outside a West Bank settlement on Sunday, resulting in the death of a baby who was delivered prematurely after the attack, and continued with the killing of two Palestinians wanted in that and another attack on Israelis in the West Bank.

A paramedic at the scene, Shalom Galil, said: "When we arrived at the location we saw four young people with gunshot wounds near the hitchhiking stop." According to Galil, two people aged 20, a man and women, were evacuated to the hospital in serious condition. Two others in critical were left at the scene and treated by Israeli army paramedics.

A senior Israeli army officer told Haaretz "Hamas is investing a lot of effort into establishing terror infrastructures and units for attack in the West Bank. We're dealing with this in Hebron, Ramallah, Nablus and other places. We often succeed, but some events end harshly."

Hamas and Islamic Jihad praised the attack, with the former's spokesman saying the organization welcomed "the heroic action which is a response to the crimes of the occupation and its behavior," adding that "the youth of the West Bank will continue to fight."

On Wednesday night, Israeli troops shot a Palestinian man near the West Bank city of Ramallah as part of an ongoing manhunt for the assailants beind Sunday's drive-by shooting near Ofra. The man later died of his wounds at Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem.

The site of the incident is south of the settlement of Ofra, where six Israelis were wounded and a baby, who was delivered after his mother was shot in the attack, died.

On Wednesday, Israeli forces killed Salah Barghouti, a Palestinian suspect wanted in the drive-by shooting in a bus stop near Ofra.

Thursday's shooting came hours after Israeli security forces tracked down and killed a Palestinian accused of killing two Israelis.

Early on Thursday, Israeli security forces said Ashraf Saliman Na'alwa was killed after he was located armed near the West Bank city of Nablus. Na'alwa was said to be behind the attack that took the lives of Kim Yehezkel-Levengrond and Ziv Hajbi on October.

2 Israelis Dead, 2 Critically Wounded in Palestinian Shooting Attack North of Jerusalem
Palestinian terrorists fired at Israelis near Givat Assaf, north of Jerusalem, killing two and seriously wounding two others.

By: United with Israel Staff

Palestinian terrorists on Thursday morning carried out a drive-by shooting attack, hitting four Israelis at the entrance to Givat Assaf in the Binyamin region, just north of Jerusalem, before fleeing.

Large security forces and emergency medical personnel rushed to the scene. While fighting to save the lives of the victims, two succumbed to their wounds.

The other two victims, a man and a woman in their early 20s, were rushed to Jerusalem hospitals in serious condition.

The IDF launched a mass manhunt for the terror cell.

Givat Assaf (Hebrew for ‘Assaf’s Hill’) was named in memory of Assaf Hershkowitz, who was murdered by Palestinian terrorists at the same spot in 2001.

Israel has been experiencing a significant increase in Palestinian terror attacks. Earlier on Thursday, two Border Policemen were wounded in a stabbing attack in Jerusalem’s Old City.

On Wednesday night, Israeli Special Forces tracked down and killed two Palestinian terrorists who were involved in two recent deadly shooting attacks. In one incident, Israeli forces killed a Palestinian terrorist wanted for Sunday’s drive-by shooting at a bus stop at the entrance to Ofra, in which seven Israelis were wounded. He was eliminated just hours after the death of the Israeli baby delivered prematurely as a result of the attack.

In total, 10 Israelis have been killed in Palestinian terror attacks in recent months, a high death toll in comparison to recent years.

The Shin Bet (Israel’s Security Agency) has prevented more than 1,000 terror attacks in the past year, according to a report by director Nadav Argaman to the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee in November.

“In Judea and Samaria, the reality is very complex,” he noted. “We can discern a relative calm, but this quiet is deceptive. Underneath the surface, the area is bubbling” in the region.

Australia Set to Recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s Capital
Australia appears to be on the way to moving its embassy to Israel’s capital.
By: The Tower

Australia is set to formally recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, after the country’s national security committee approved the move on Tuesday night, The Times of Israel reported.

The Australian government is expected to formally announce the decision although it remains unclear if the country intends to recognize the entirety of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, or just west Jerusalem.

Meanwhile, senior government sources told The Australian newspaper that the embassy relocation from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem appears to have been delayed because of the projected cost, estimated at $200 million. Instead, a consular office will be set up in Jerusalem.

Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison in October said he was “open” to recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish state, and that it would be “sensible” and “persuasive” to relocate the embassy there.

In a follow-up conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Australian leader said: “We’re committed to a two-state solution, but frankly it hasn’t been going that well, not a lot of progress has been made, and you don’t keep doing the same thing and expect different results.”

In a statement on social media on Tuesday, senior Palestinian official Saeb Erekat harshly criticized Australia’s decision and called on Arab and Muslim countries to sever all diplomatic ties with the country, if Australia moves ahead with the announcement.

Other countries, among them the Czech Republic and Brazil, have announced their intention to move their embassies to Jerusalem. Brazil’s President-elect Jair Bolsonaro said in November: “As previously stated during our campaign, we intend to transfer the Brazilian Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Israel is a sovereign state and we shall duly respect that.”

The United States relocated its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on May 14, followed by Guatemala two days later. Paraguay also moved its embassy last May before returning it to Tel Aviv in September.

Israel is confident that more countries will move their embassies to Jerusalem and is making preparations in advance.

By Jack Gold, World Israel News

Israel is preparing a special embassy quarter in Jerusalem to facilitate the relocation of more embassies to its capital, Israel National News reported.

Officials from Israel’s Construction and Housing Ministry on Wednesday announced plans to build a complex in the capital with space for nine embassies.

According to the report, the plan is being promoted by Construction and Housing Minister Yoav Galant, who instructed ministry officials to prepare for additional embassy moves.

The new embassy quarter is expected to be established on a plot of land in the Armon HaNatziv neighborhood, on 25 acres of land, and will include both embassy facilities and housing for embassy staff.

Some 60,000 square meters (approx. 646,000 square feet) of building space will be included in the project, with an option to expand to 80,000 square meters (approx.. 861,000 square feet), ministry officials said.

“I am convinced that many more countries will relocate their embassies to Jerusalem,” Galant was quoted as saying by INN, while urging “the international community to relocate their embassies to Jerusalem, our eternal capital. It is the right thing to do. Make the move quickly, the best places are going to be taken quickly.”

Australia is set to formally recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel since the country’s national security committee approved the move on Tuesday night, Times of Israel reported.

The U.S. was the first country to relocate its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on May 14, followed by Guatemala two days later.

Other countries, among them the Czech Republic and Brazil, have announced their intention to move their embassies to Jerusalem.

US urges Europe to sanction Iran over missiles
 December 4, 2018
The Trump administration is urging Europe to impose tough new sanctions on Iran over its ballistic missile program.
By Associated Press
The U.S.’ call for sanctions on Iran comes as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is to meet European officials in Brussels this week and after the U.S. and others condemned an Iranian missile launch over the weekend.
Iran was also a topic of conversation when Pompeo met Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Brussels on Monday night.
Pompeo plans to talk about Iran when he meets his counterparts from Britain, France and Germany on Tuesday while he is in Belgium for a meeting of NATO counterparts.
U.S. special envoy for Iran Brian Hook rejected Iran’s insistence that its missile program is defensive.
He told reporters traveling with Pompeo that Iran’s continued missile development and testing is a threat to the region and beyond and in defiance of U.N. Security Council demands.

Analysis What Has Really Been on Nasrallah's Mind as Israel's Front With Hezbollah Heats Up
While Israel was convinced that Nasrallah was dumbstruck over the exposure of Hezbollah’s tunnels, he was actually busy with a different domestic issue of far greater importance to him

Lebanon is currently embroiled in a digging scandal. Not the digging of tunnels, but of water wells.
Netanyahu: ‘Reasonable Chance’ IDF Will Be Forced to Act in Lebanon
“I am applying force with caution and responsibility,” Netanyahu told foreign diplomats while touring the north, explaining that the IDF may have no choice but to act in Lebanon.

By TPS and United with Israel Staff

There is a “reasonable chance” that Israel will be forced to act in Lebanon as part of Operation Northern Shield, Prime Minister and Defense Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday.

He made the statement shortly after meeting with foreign ambassadors at Kibbutz Misgav-Am, close to Israel’s border with Lebanon, where he briefed them on Operation Northern Shield. The operation to expose and dismantle Hezbollah’s cross border tunnels began earlier this week.

“I am applying force with caution and responsibility,” Netanyahu declared.

Netanyahu updated the diplomats on the intelligence picture of Hezbollah’s intention to use the tunnels to attack Israel, emphasizing that this is an “expression of Iranian aggression in the region.”

“On a foggy day like this one, you can assess the murderous effectiveness of the terror tunnels I’m talking about,” Netanyahu told the diplomats, “What we are faced with is one large enemy. That enemy is called Iran.”

According to Netanyahu, Hezbollah is acting both on the nuclear front, as well as in efforts to gain military presence in Syria and southern Lebanon using Hezbollah.

The prime minister asked the diplomats to denounce Hezbollah, support further sanctions against the terror organization and demand that the Lebanese stop giving Hezbollah free rein in southern Lebanon, which the Shi’ite organization uses as a base of operations for actions against Israel.

“Israel expects a clear denouncement of Hezbollah, the instillation of further sanctions against Hezbollah, and a demand from the Lebanese government to stop giving [Hezbollah] permission to use its territory for these attacks on Israel,” said Netanyahu, adding that these demands will be put forth by Israel during the next meeting of the United Nations Security Council. “This is an important diplomatic step, which completes our operational effort to deprive Hezbollah and Iran of the weapon of attack tunnels.

“We are depriving our enemies of the tunnel weapon methodically and determinately,” Netanyahu continued. “We will act as is necessary. Whoever attacks us – their blood will be on their own heads. Hezbollah and Hamas both know that.”

UNIFIL Must Take ‘a Much Tougher Approach’
In response to a diplomat’s question, Netanyahu said that “UNIFIL (the UN Interim Force in Lebanon) should expand its role, because evidently it’s not been done. UNIFIL is supposed to monitor, at the very least monitor if not stop, the transfer of weapons into Lebanon, into south Lebanon. And you know there were 15,000 rockets and missiles at the end of the Second Lebanon War. There’s about 10 times that and we haven’t seen a single case, a single filing of a complaint or report by UNIFIL.

“The commander of UNIFIL has said that there was no recorded violation,” he added. “Look at this tunnel. That’s a clear act of recorded violation. We think UNIFIL should discharge its responsibility and actually do it with a much tougher approach and with a bigger force.”

The prime minister also commented on concerns by residents in recent years about the building of tunnels in the north.

“We were hearing from communities all alongside the Lebanese border, they’re building tunnels, we don’t know, they’re coming under our homes. Now we’re telling them we do know. They must sigh a great sigh of relief because they see that we’re handling this matter just as we dismantled it in Gaza.”

‘We’re Not the Aggressive Power’
“I think there’s one other point. You’re going to hear from Hezbollah today that Israel is the aggressive power and so on, and Israel is flying over Lebanon. So the answer is, first of all, we’re not the aggressive power, we didn’t say that we want to destroy Lebanon and our life’s goal is not to eradicate the people of Lebanon off the face of the earth. But that’s the goal of Hezbollah vis-à-vis the Jewish State of Israel,” Netanyahu continued.

“The second point is that we have a perfect right of preemptive self-defense to survey and collect intelligence against those who openly declare their goal to destroy us, and we do so. But what they’re doing is actually invading our ground, our territory. That’s what they’re doing and you can’t make a false symmetry between these two things.”

Why Does America Spend So Much on Israel?
A US security expert explains why military aid to Israel is actually an investment in the American way of life.
With so much that must be done at home in the US, why does America expend its resources helping Israel?
It’s a fair question, but according to US Air Force Gen Chuck Wald, America doesn’t spend enough on Israel, and for purely selfish reasons.
Watch to understand why.

Netanyahu to Lebanon: ‘Hezbollah is Putting Your Lives in Danger
“I have a message for the people of Lebanon: Hezbollah is putting your lives in danger. They are sacrificing your wellbeing to serve the aggressive purposes of Iran,” Netanyahu warned. 

By: United with Israel Staff

The IDF on Tuesday morning launched a campaign to expose and neutralize a network of terror tunnels on Israel’s northern border with Lebanon, which Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned threatens the lives of Israeli citizens and Lebanese alike.

Speaking about Operation Northern Shield at the Defense Ministry in Tel Aviv, Netanyahu, who also serves as defense minister, stated that the cross-border terror tunnels were built by Hezbollah “with direct support and funding from Iran.”

“They were built with one purpose in mind – to attack and murder innocent Israeli men, women and children. This is a grave violation of Israel’s sovereignty, and a gross violation of UN Security Council Resolution 1701. It is an unacceptable act of wanton aggression,” he charged.

Noting that the first terror tunnel exposed by the IDF was built under a home in a civilian neighborhood, Netanyahu said that “this is just one more example of how Hezbollah is committing a double war crime. They target civilians while hiding behind civilians. And this must be condemned loudly and clearly by all nations that care about peace, freedom and human dignity.”

He then addressed the citizens of Lebanon directly: “I have a message for the people of Lebanon: Hezbollah is putting your lives in danger. They are sacrificing your wellbeing to serve the aggressive purposes of Iran.”

“Israel holds the Lebanese government accountable for all terror activity emanating from Lebanon against Israel,” he stated. Earlier in the day he warned that anyone who attacks Israel “would pay a heavy price.”

Vanquishing Hezbollah, Just Like Hamas
“Like any other nation, Israel maintains the right to defend itself. We will continue to do all that is necessary to defend ourselves against Iran’s efforts to use Lebanon, Syria and Gaza as forward terror bases to attack Israel,” he vowed.

Iran has been opearting extensively to broaden its influence on Gaza’s terror groups while establishing itself militarily in Syria in an effort to open further fronts from which to attack Israel.

While Hezbollah emulates the Hamas terror organization in Gaza, digging tunnels into Israel designed to deploy large groups of terrorists, Netanyahu warned, “Just as we have exposed and dismantled the terror tunnels of Hamas alongside our border with Gaza, we will expose and dismantle the terror tunnels of Hezbollah alongside our border with Lebanon.”

“Israel will continue to do all that is necessary to protect our people and defend our borders,” he concluded.

The IDF is operating at several points inside Israeli territory along its northern border with Lebanon, with several areas declared a closed military zone.

Hezbollah has so far remained silent and has not reacted to the IDF’s operation.

Israeli Army: Fragments of Syrian Anti-aircraft Missile Found in Golan Heights
Damascus, Russian media retract earlier report Syria downed Israeli aircraft ■ Al-Arabiya: Israeli planes attacked Iranian targets in Syria ■ Syrian opposition says target of airstrike was close to area with heavy Hezbollah presence

Yaniv Kubovich, Jack Khoury, Reuters and Haaretz Nov 30, 2018 1:01 PM
FILE PHOTO: Surface-to-air missile fire is seen over Damascus, Syria, April 14, 2018.Hassan Ammar/AP
Syria's air defence forces shot down an Israeli war plane and four missiles on Thursday, Russia's RIA news agency said, citing a Syrian security source, but Israel's military said the report was bogus. 

RIA later contradicted the report, saying that Syrian air defences shot down several targets but did not shoot down an Israeli war plane. Damascus also retracted an earlier statement that it downed an Israeli fighter jet.

LISTEN: Are Netanyahu and Trump on collision course?Haaretz
On Friday, the Israeli army said it found fragments which most likely belonged to a Syrian anti-aircraft missile in an open field in the Golan Heights. 

On Thursday night, the Syrian air force shot down a "hostile target" flying over the town of Kiswah, south of the capital Damascus, state media said. Saudi-owned TV station Al-Arabiya reported that Israeli planes attacked Iranian militia positions in the country's south.

>> Analysis: Shadow of Russian plane still hangs: Israel worries about conflict in north, but its hands are tied

State media quoted a military source but did not specify what the target was or where it came from. Syrian opposition sources on the ground said the area was close to where the Iranian-backed Lebanese Shi'ite group Hezbollah has a powerful presence with several bases. 

The army added that reports that Israeli aircraft was hit are incorrect. 

On Thursday, the Israel Defence Forces said in a statement on Twitter: "In the course of Syrian ground-to-air missile fire, (Israel's) air defences sighted a single trajectory toward an open area of the Golan Heights." 

"At this stage it remains unclear whether there was indeed an impact in our territory. Our forces are scouring the area. Furthermore, the report about a strike on an Israeli aircraft or an Israeli aerial target are bogus," said the statement. 

Earlier, Syrian state media said Syrian air defences shot down "hostile targets" flying over the town of Kiswah. 

'Changing tactics'

Israeli strikes on Syria "have been cut almost to zero" since a Russian plane was shot down near Latakia two months ago, a former head of Military Intelligence said earlier Thursday.

Maj. Gen. Amos Yadlin, interviewed on Radio 103, said Iran was "changing tactics" and has been reducing its presence in Syria in favor of Iraq and Lebanon.

"Apart from the Russians' anger with us, I assume they also passed stern messages to the Iranians," he said. "Russia's strategy is to stabilize Syria, and Iran was disrupting that by developing its precision missile facilities."

Yadlin, who now heads the National Institute for National Security Studies at Tel Aviv University, said a clash between Iran and Israel on Syrian territory wouldn't be beneficial to Russia, so a change in Iranian activity is already discernible in Syria.

The interception of the Russian aircraft caused a crisis between Israel and Russia. Since the incident, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has tried unsuccessfully to schedule meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin, until the two met briefly in Paris some two weeks ago. Putin said recently that he had no further meetings planned with Netanyahu.

Haaretz reported in October that the Russians were taking a firmer line with Israel regarding the Israel Air Force's activity in the north. Among other things, the Russians demanded further clarifications from Israel about the IDF's activity in the north by means of a hotline established to prevent friction between the sides. In a few cases, radars in Russia's air defense systems were activated when the Israel Air Force operated in the north.

Danon: Hamas Going to UN is ‘Like a Serial Killer Asking Police for Assistance’
“A terrorist organization going to the UN for assistance is like a serial killer asking the police for assistance,” Israel’s UN envoy said. 

By: United with Israel Staff

Ismail Haniyeh, the head of Hamas’ political bureau, dispatched a letter to the United Nations General Assembly president, Maria Fernanda Spinosa, in response to Ameican and Israeli actions against the terror group at the world body.

Haniyeh claimed to be “following up with great anger and condemnation the ongoing and miserable efforts by the United States of America, not only by adopting the Israeli narrative of the conflict, but also by providing all the necessary material and moral support for the Israeli occupation to continue its aggression against our people and deprive them of their basic rights of freedom, independence and self-determination.”

Furthermore, Hamas would “greatly count on the members of the UN General Assembly [to] stand by international legitimacy in support for the right of peoples to defend themselves and thwart these aggressive American endeavors.”

He then stressed the need for “hard work to thwart the American efforts to condemn the resistance” at the UN.

Responding to the letter, Israel’s ambassador to the UN Danny Danon said that “Hamas speaks about international law while it fires rockets into civilian populations, holds the bodies of IDF soldiers and Israeli citizens, and uses its own people as human shields.”

“A terrorist organization going to the UN for assistance is like a serial killer asking the police for assistance,” he stated mockingly.

He vowed that “Israel and the United States will continue to mobilize the countries of the world into a united front against the terrorism that Hamas engages in on behalf of Iran.”

Most recently, the US submitted a draft resolution at the UN condemning Hamas, to be voted on during the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, which is held on November 29 each year.

Similarly, the Trump administration is seeking to reduce the number of UN resolutions on the Palestinian issue, saying that “many biased resolutions against Israel are not helpful.”
