Netanyahu asserted that Israel will do all in its power to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear power.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, addressing the annual Saban Forum via video link, said he plans to discuss the “bad nuclear deal” with incoming President Donald Trump.

The deal not only prevents Iran from getting nukes, but actually helps the Islamic Republic to reach its goal, Netanyahu stressed.

The Israeli leader praised Trump for having a clear vision about America’s role on the global stage.

This year’s event – titled “Challenges for the Trump Administration in the Middle East – took place in Washington, D.C., at the Brooking Institution headquarters.

Listen to what else he said about Iran and what he plans to discuss with Trump.

Pro-Israel Group Praises Trump’s Secretary of Defense Pick Gen. James Mattis
By JNS December 4, 2016 , 9:30 am
“These of the sons of Gad were captains of the host; he that was least was equal to a hundred, and the greatest to a thousand.” I Chronicles 12:15 (The Israel Bible™)

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/mattis.jpg

President-elect Donald Trump announced Thursday evening that he would nominate retired Marine General James Mattis as his next secretary of defense.

“We are going to appoint ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis as our secretary of defense,” Trump said at a rally in Cincinnati.

Mattis, 66, is a retired four-star Marine general who served as U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) commander from 2010-2013. His nickname stems from his widely praised leadership among his fellow Marines during the Battle of Fallujah in Iraq in 2004.

Last month, when it was rumored that Mattis would be Trump’s choice for defense secretary, the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) urged the president-elect against the appointment over controversial statements Mattis has made about Israel.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/461-BIN-SubscribeUSIsraelRelations-600WIDE.jpg

At a 2013 Aspen Institute conference, Mattis said he “paid a military-security price every day as a commander of CENTCOM, because the Americans are seen as biased in support of Israel, and that moderates all the moderate Arabs who want to be with us, because they can’t come out publicly in support of people who don’t show respect for the Arab Palestinians.” Mattis also described Israel’s control over Judea and Samaria as “unsustainable” and warned that Jewish settlements would turn Israel into an “apartheid” state.

The ZOA said Mattis’s past comments “revealed a lack of appreciation for and understanding of the extraordinary value to American security resulting from a strong American-Israeli alliance and a secure Israel.” As such, ZOA President Morton Klein opposed Mattis’s rumored appointment.
But the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA) dismissed the concerns over Mattis, calling them “ill-founded and unfair.”

“On the larger U.S. military and strategic issues related to the Middle East…General Mattis has notably and indisputably distinguished himself in advocating for a more robust U.S. military posture to counter, contain and deter Iran, even at the peril of his military career,” JINSA said in a statement, adding that “General Mattis’ outlook on these issues aligns perfectly with Israel’s, which considers an aggressive Iran its greatest strategic threat, and a nuclear Iran to be an existential threat.”

Nevada Introduces Anti-BDS Legislation
By JNS December 4, 2016 , 11:30 am

“If Hashem delight in us, then He will bring us into this land, and give it unto us a land which floweth with milk and honey.” Numbers 14:8 (The Israel Bible™)
Nevada Lieutenant Governor Mark Hutchison and pro-Israel activists introduced a new resolution seeking to counter the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

The proposed Senate Bill 26 will seek to counter the discriminatory environment fostered by the BDS movement, according to the Israeli-American Coalition for Action (IAC for Action), which is promoting the measure. Nevada’s anti-BDS resolution will be similar to others passed by more than a dozen U.S. states in recent years.

“We have a unique opportunity in the coming legislative session to send a powerful message that the hateful and discriminatory environment fostered by BDS has no place in Nevada,” said IAC for Action Chairman Shawn Evenhaim. “The IAC for Action is grateful to Lieutenant Governor Mark Hutchison and the state legislators of Nevada for their courageous leadership on this issue.”

Neville Pokroy, chairperson of the IAC for Action Government Relations Committee in Las Vegas, added that the Israeli-American community is ready to unite with other Nevada residents to “make a big difference in the fight against hate and discrimination.”

Castro’s Greatest Victory
By Caroline Glick
The Palestinians are loudly mourning the passing of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. PLO chief and Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas ordered flags in the PA to be flown at halfmast on Sunday to honor Castro.

The Cuban Communist dictator, who murdered tens of thousands of his own people, imprisoned tens of thousands more, caused a million Cubans to flee their homeland and transformed an island paradise into a water-enclosed prison, was a key ally of Palestinian terrorists in their war to destroy Israel.
Castro’s support for the PLO and its longtime terrorist master Yasser Arafat spanned five decades. Castro’s secret police, the DGI, trained Palestinian terrorists both in Cuba and in the Middle East.

According to the CIA, several hundred Palestinian terrorists were trained in Cuba in the 1970s. Cuban trainers also worked with the PLO in Algiers and Damascus and later in training terrorists from around the world at PLO training camps in Lebanon in the 1970s and early 1980s.

Military training in terrorist tactics wasn’t the only way that Castro helped Arafat. He also provided the PLO with diplomatic cover and political guidance. Palestinian terrorists, including Arafat, began routinely visiting Cuba in the early 1960s. Castro welcomed the formation of the PLO in 1964. His military and intelligence officers met with Arafat and other senior Palestinian terrorists in Algiers and Damascus as early as 1965.

The Houris: Islam’s ‘Sexual Superwomen’
By Raymond Ibrahim
Last month, when the battle for Mosul began, Islamic State “caliph” Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi reportedly promised four extra Houris (supernatural, celestial women designed for sexual purposes)—atop the other 72 virgins—to all jihadis who die fighting the infidel forces according to Arabic media accounts.
Al-Baghdadi did this during an extra “fiery sermon” wherein he recounted 15 hadiths and three stories dealing with the Houris in the context of the original Muslim conquest of Mosul, circa. 637, at the hands of Muhammad’s companions (the sahahba). After promising his followers that “blood will run like rivers in the [forthcoming] battle,” al-Baghdadi declared: “All, without exception, will enter paradise as martyrs. Moreover, you will enter paradise with four more Houris than other martyrs. For just as you stand by me now, so will they stand by you, or under you, or above you, so that you might forget what will happen to you by way of violence, death, and degradation in this war.”
While it is easy to dismiss this report as a hoax (among other things, it doesn’t explain why al-Baghdadi thinks they will get four more heavenly concubines), the problem is that Islam—from its history and doctrines, to the exhortation of its leaders, from Muhammad to al-Baghdadi—is full of stories and enticements concerning the Houris.
Here, for instance, is an authentic hadith—a statement attributed to Muhammad that mainstream Islam acknowledges as true—which all jihadi organizations (including ISIS) regularly invoke:

Religious Jews Cheer Trump’s Education Pick as Champion of Religious Schools
By Valerie Locke November 30, 2016 , 11:30 am
“How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! yea, to get understanding is rather to be chosen than silver.” Proverbs 16:16 (The Israel Bible™)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/trump-devos.png
From left, Betsy DeVos, Donald Trump, Mike Pence. (Video screenshot)
Several influential American Orthodox Jewish organizations have welcomed President-elect Donald Trump’s appointment of Betsy DeVos as education secretary in his administration, seeing it as a harbinger of major reform which will ease the high costs of private Jewish schooling.

Agudath Israel of America (AIA), an Orthodox leadership and policy organization, quickly praised DeVos, citing its personal experience with the billionaire activist for education reform.

“Agudath Israel has worked closely with Mrs. DeVos for many years, together with other organizations and legislators from both sides of the aisle, to give parents educational options for their children,” read the AIA’s statement, published in The Yeshiva World.

“Thanks to that effort, hundreds of thousands of children across the United States are receiving a quality education they couldn’t otherwise afford, including many students who choose to attend Jewish day schools.”

AIA’s national director of state relations, Rabbi A.D. Motzen, noted DeVos’s “passionate support for school choice”, or the supporting of private education with public, government funds.

Currently, American education policy cuts religious schools off from public funding due to the Constitutional separation of church and state. The exorbitant cost of private Jewish education, which most religious Jews consider a basic necessity for instilling Jewish values in a secular world, puts serious financial pressure on Jewish families. Day school tuition can cost up to $12,000 a year, while high school tuition is often double that number.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/461-BIN-SubscribeUSIsraelRelations-600WIDE.jpg

DeVos, as the leader of the pro-charter school American Federation for Children, supports an education model incorporating school choice which would see billions in federal money earmarked towards chartering independent schools and funding private school vouchers for less affluent students – including religious schools.

“Under her leadership, we will reform the U.S. education system and break the bureaucracy that is holding our children back so that we can deliver world-class education and school choice to all families,” Trump said in his announcement of DeVos’s nomination on November 23.

Nathan Diament, executive director of the policy branch of the Orthodox Union, the largest Orthodox Jewish organization in the U.S., also hailed the announcement with satisfaction. Diament said the appointment signaled that Trump would keep a campaign promise which had made him “attractive” to Orthodox voters.

School choice, Diament told the Algemeiner, is the “number one kitchen-table domestic policy issue for the Orthodox community.”

Trump’s proposal of a $20 billion earmark for private education “has the potential to greatly assist the Jewish community with its affordability challenge,” he said.

Such a move would put more control in the parents’ hands, he argued. “The regulators of the schools should be the parents, the parents who care for their children.”

Senate Renews Iran Sanctions Law,Leaving Door Open For Trump
“Through Thee do we push down our adversaries; through Thy name do we tread them under that rise up against us.” (Psalms 44:6)
The US Senate voted on Thursday to extend the Iran Sanctions Act (ISA) for ten years, leaving the option open for President elect Donald Trump to reinstate sanctions against Iran if it violates the deal concerning its nuclear program.

Though the Iran deal pushed through by President Barack Obama last year was highly divisive, the extension passed overwhelmingly yesterday. Two weeks ago, it passed the House by a vote 419-1, and yesterday it passed the congress unanimously, 99-0. The bill must now be signed by the president.

“We’ll let you know what the president decides to do with it,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said at a press conference on Thursday.

Originally written in 1996 during the presidency of Bill Clinton, the ISA imposed economic sanctions on firms doing business with Iran. Originally, the bill included sanctions against Libya.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/445-BIN-Subscribe-MiddleEast-600WIDE.jpg

With the act set to expire at the end of December, Senator Bob Menendez (Dem) explained the need for the extension.

“If the sanctions architecture has expired, then we have no sanctions which we can snap back,” he explained to the press..

Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker told Reuters that the renewal is intended to keep all options open for the incoming administration regarding the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) nuclear deal with Iran.

“Extending the Iran Sanctions Act … ensures President-elect Trump and his administration have the tools necessary to push back against the regime’s hostile actions,” Corker said in a statement.

The incoming Republican president spoke out strongly against the Iran deal during his campaign, calling it a “disaster” and vowing to “dismantle” it. His recent candidates for security positions all seem to be like-minded, putting the future of Obama’s pet-project in jeopardy.

Iran reacted in anger, claiming the extension was a violation of the JCPOA signed in July 2015. Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei told members of the volunteer Basij forces in Tehran, “So far, the current US government has committed several violations with regard to the nuclear agreement,” adding, “The most recent of them is the 10-year extension of the sanctions. If these sanctions are extended, it will surely constitute a violation of the JCPOA and they (the US) should know that the Islamic Republic will definitely react to it.

Obama Vetoes Jerusalem Embassy
for Last Time
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz December 2, 2016 , 9:54 am
“Yerushalayim, that art builded as a city that is compact together… For there were set thrones for judgment, the thrones of the house of David.Pray for the peace of Yerushalayim; may they prosper that love thee.” Psalms 122:3-6 (The Israel Bible™)

Citing security concerns, US President Barack Obama vetoed for final time the law to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

In a memorandum to the Secretary of State John Kerry, Obama wrote:

Pursuant to the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, including section 7(a) of the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 (Public Law 104-45) (the “Act”), I hereby determine that it is necessary, in order to protect the national security interests of the United States, to suspend for a period of 6 months the limitations set forth in sections 3(b) and 7(b) of the Act.

You are authorized and directed to transmit this determination to the Congress, accompanied by a report in accordance withsection 7(a) of the Act, and to publish the determination in the Federal Register. This suspension shall take effect after transmission of this determination and report to the Congress.

This annual presidential custom dates back to 1995, when Congress passed the Jerusalem Embassy Act, for the purposes of initiating and funding the relocation of the Embassy of the United States in Israel to Jerusalem, no later than May 31, 1999. The act also called for Jerusalem to remain an undivided city and for it to be recognized as the capital of the State of Israel. The law allowed the president to veto for security considerations. Every six months since the law passed, every US president has done so, preventing the move from taking place.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/461-BIN-SubscribeUSIsraelRelations-600WIDE.jpg

During his campaign, president elect Donald Trump promised he would move the embassy to Jerusalem. He generated enthusiasm for his campaign last year when he made that promise at a conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), a pro-Israel lobbying group.

Nevertheless, shortly after the election,Walid Phares, a senior policy aide to Trump, seemed to backpedal on this pledge in a BBC interview when he stated the Trump administration would only move the embassy to Jerusalem “under consensus.” He did not define whose consensus he meant, or on what terms.

“Many presidents of the United States have committed to do that, and he said as well that he will do that, but he will do it under consensus,” Phares said.

Using this promise to attract pro-Israel voters and then reneging is an effective campaign poly used by both parties. Both Bill Clinton and George W. Bush vowed to move the embassy in Israel and then vetoed the law when it crossed their desks.

Jerusalem has been the capital of Israel since 1950 and officially annexed the eastern half of the city after unifying it in the 1967 Six Day War.

Israel’s UN Envoy Slams General Assembly Head for Wearing Palestinian Flag Scarf
Dec 1, 2016
The UN again blatantly displayed that it is biased against Israel and in favor of the Palestinians.

Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations (UN) Danny Danon slammed UN General Assembly President Peter Thomson for wearing a Palestinian flag scarf.

Thomson wore the scarf on Tuesday at a meeting of the UN’s Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People (CEIRPP) that marked International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. The special session, initiated by the Palestinian UN delegation, came on the anniversary of the UN Partition Plan of November 29, 1947, which led to the creation of the State of Israel.

“It’s unacceptable for the president of the UN General Assembly, whose position is a symbol of neutrality and stateliness, to wrap himself in a Palestinian flag and participate in an event the sole purpose of which is to attack and besmirch the state of Israel,” Danon said. “This is living, unequivocal proof of the bias against Israel and the slander spread about us at the UN.”

In his address to the UN General Assembly, Danon questioned whether the Palestinians really want statehood and argued that the Palestinians have rejected every Israeli offer for peace.

“Do the Palestinians even want a state? History tells us that the answer is no. If the Palestinians really wanted peace, we could have had peace decades ago. The Palestinians reject every Israeli offer and every plan and respond with waves of violence and terror,” he said.

During his speech, Danon held up the front page of The New York Times from Nov. 30, 1947, the day after the Partition Plan vote, with headlines that read “Assembly Votes Palestine Partition” and “Arabs Walk Out…Disavow Any Partition Role.”

Danon added that the Palestinian Authority (PA) “pays lip-service to these [peace] initiatives because it pays well. The real goal of the PA is to continue to exist as a corrupt entity living off the goodwill of the international community without the responsibilities of governing. And they know the only way to do so is to continue the conflict.”

The General Assembly also adopted six resolutions critical of Israel Tuesday. The resolutions included measures ignoring Jewish ties to holy sites in Jerusalem, allocating resources to help promote the Palestinian narrative, and calling on Israel to withdraw from the “occupied territories.”

Obama Now “Highly Unlikely” to Push UN Israel Peace Deal
Trump Win Prompts Obama to Give Up on UN-Led Israel Solution
By Abra Forman December 1, 2016 , 1:30 pm
“There are many devices in a man’s heart; but the counsel of Hashem, that shall stand.” Proverbs 19:21 (The Israel Bible™)

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/obama-bibi.jpg

President Barack Obama has “nearly ruled out” any lame-duck efforts to push a negotiation framework on Israel through the United Nations (UN), and US officials say this is largely due to Donald Trump’s unexpected victory.

As early as last March, Obama was known to be considering a last-ditch bid for Middle East peace through the UN. Before the presidential election, Obama had ordered up an “options menu” for proceeding with an effort to restart peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians through the UN during his last months in office.

However, pursuing the type of peace plan Obama favored was only possible under the assumption that Democrat Hillary Clinton would succeed him, the Associated Press reported.

Clinton, who campaigned on a strongly pro-Israel platform, might have softened Obama’s terms, but would likely have been willing to work within the UN framework established by Obama.

Trump’s election changed the equation. The Republican President-elect made clear during his campaign that he does not see Israel’s settlements as an obstacle to peace and believes Jerusalem should be recognized as Israel’s capital – positions in complete opposition to those of the Obama administration.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/461-BIN-SubscribeUSIsraelRelations-600WIDE.jpg

Following his win, Trump’s transition team quickly warned Obama that pushing agendas “contrary to the president-elect’s position” would be seen as an antagonistic move likely to strain the process of passing power to Trump.

“On big, transformative issues where President Obama and President-elect Trump are not in alignment, I don’t think it’s in keeping with the spirit of the transition” to continue advancing policies “that clearly don’t match Trump’s positions,” a Trump advisor told Politico.

While Trump has said he is eager to make “the ultimate deal” between Israel and the Palestinians, he is not interested in “coercing” either party, Trump’s Israel advisor, Jason Greenblatt, said earlier in the month, assuring Israel, “He doesn’t intend to force a solution.”

Obama’s backing down comes as a relief to Israeli leaders, who had been bracing for a “November surprise” from the lame-duck president in the form of a UN resolution which could upset the balance of power in favor of the Palestinians, and to pro-Israel American lawmakers, a group of whom urged Obama in September not to abandon Israel at the UN.

With less than two months left in office, Obama is now “highly unlikely” to approve any UN measures which would endanger Israel’s position, US officials have said.

Report: IAF Strikes Hezbollah Convoy,Syrian Armory
By JNI Media November 30, 2016 , 1:30 pm
“But they that wait for Hashem shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall walk, and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31 (The Israel Bible™)

According to London-based Arab newspaper Rai al Youm, Israel attacked overnight Wednesday a weapons storage facility outside Damascus belonging to the Syrian army and a military convoy.

IAF planes attacked an armory of the Syrian army’s fourth division, and a convoy near the highway connecting Damascus and Beirut, Lebanon. The convoy was reportedly preparing to haul a large weapons load for Hezbollah. The attack consisted of two separate sorties.

According to Lebanese website el Nashra, the attack took place at 1:20 Wednesday morning, as four loud explosions were heard from the outskirts of Damascus. The armory, located near the highway, sustained major damages.

So far there has been no report of the Syrian army firing at the two IAF attacks. In September, President Assad’s army shot at Israeli planes flying over Quneitra, in southern Syria, near the Israeli Golan Heights border.

Turkish President Erdogan Calls on All Muslims to Protect Jerusalem
Nov 29, 2016
Is Turkey’s president calling for a Muslim holy war against Israel?

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is urging “all Muslims” to defend Jerusalem from Israel and stand for the Palestinian cause, striking a tough stance and criticizing Israel despite recently improved ties between the two countries.

Erdogan, the president of majority Muslim Turkey, said Tuesday “it is the common duty of all Muslims to embrace the Palestinian cause and protect Jerusalem” and that safeguarding the Al-Aqsa Mosque should not be left to children armed with nothing but stones.

This appears to be a clear call to the Muslim world to take up arms against Israel.

Speaking at the first annual conference on Jerusalem in Istanbul, the Turkish leader also criticized an Israeli proposal to make mosques reduce the volume of loudspeakers issuing the call to prayer, calling the proposed bill “irrational” and “conscienceless.”

His comments come as Israel and Turkey prepare to exchange ambassadors as part of a reconciliation deal.

DNA Tests Could Fulfill God’s Promise to Abraham by Revealing Millions of Jews. But How Jewish is Jewish Enough?
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz November 29, 2016 , 10:30 am
“I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the seashore.” Genesis 22:17 (The Israel Bible™)

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/shutterstock_272178170-1.jpg
Recent advances in DNA testing are the final stage in bringing about a special vision of Messiah, one that will fulfill God’s promise to Abraham while uniting all three major Abrahamic religions, believes a prominent rabbi and former member of Knesset.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/amsalem-150x150.png
Rabbi Chaim Amsalem (Wikipedia)
“This is the special function of the final generation before the Messiah, which we are clearly in right now: to bring close all the descendants of Jews that were lost to the Jewish people,” Rabbi Chaim Amsalem, a prominent Sephardi rabbi, recognized authority on halacha (Torah law), and former Knesset member for Shas, told Breaking Israel News.

“We need to bring close those who have their roots in Israel, those souls who stood at Mount Sinai with us, but their souls were lost to us because of the exiles and the catastrophes and tragedies that befell us throughout history.”

Making God One

DNA testing graphically illustrates how mankind is one large interconnected family. Rabbi Amsalem understands this universal reality to have repercussions for the Jewish role in bringing the Redemption.

“Christians believe in Hashem (God), each branch in its own way. Even the Muslims believe in Hashem in their own way. It is the Jews’ purpose to bring about Messiah by uniting the world in the service of Hashem,” Rabbi Amsalem said, quoting a verse in Zechariah.

And Hashem shall be King over all the earth; in that day shall Hashem be One and His name one. Zechariah 14:9

“Not to convert them,” the rabbi noted. “But anyone who discovers that they are descended from Jews, we are required to help them. The non-Jews will remain as they are, but we have to reconnect to those souls that were lost.”

Rabbi Amsalem based this on chapter 34 in Ezekiel.

The weak have ye not strengthened neither have ye healed that which was sick neither have ye bound up that which was broken neither have ye brought back that which was driven away neither have ye sought that which was lost; but with force have ye ruled over them and with rigour. Ezekiel 34:4

The Science

The task set out by Rabbi Amsalem, inconceivable just a few short years ago, is at hand. A simple DNA test is performed at home with a cheek swab, which is then mailed to a laboratory. For less than $200, anyone can learn their ancestry going back six generations – including if they have any Jewish genes.

Bennett Greenspan (Family Tree DNA)
Bennett Greenspan, president and CEO of Family Tree DNA, a leading genetic testing company, has watched this phenomenon grow for 15 years. His company performs hundreds of thousands of these tests each year. Greenspan explained to Breaking Israel News how the test determines Jewish ancestry.

“We compare the subject’s DNA with those of verified DNA databases that have been established for specific ethnic groups, “Greenspan explained. “These databases are based on hundreds of thousands of samples and the level of certainty is extremely high. We can tell you what percentage of your ancestors were from different ethnic groups.

“We have a database of DNA for people who are verifiably Ashkenazi Jewish, or verifiably Sephardic Jewish,” Greenspan told Breaking Israel News.

With DNA testing becoming so accessible, the number of people discovering their Jewish roots is growing exponentially. Some tests show that almost 20 percent of people originating from the Iberian Peninsula (Spain and Portugal) have a high rate of Jewish ancestry. About one in ten Hispanics from North and South America tested by Family Tree DNA showed Semitic ancestry, strongly suggesting a Jewish background.

Jewish roots are showing up in the most unexpected places. Professor Tudor Parfitt, a British historian who specializes in the study of Jewish communities around the world, found the Kohen modal haplotype, frequently called the Cohen gene, in nine percent of the Lemba tribe in Africa.

Greenspan noted that DNA testing in Europe is revealing the Jewish roots of children hidden during World War II who were previously unaware of their true identities.

Greenspan, as a Jew, understands this as an imperative for the Jewish people in this generation.

“I have seen so many tears in the faces of those who were ripped away from the body of Judaism by hatred, fear, distortion and outright lies,” said Greenspan. “Bringing any of those people, these lost souls, back to Judaism is a mitzvah (Torah commandment) and should be considered an obligation of our generation.”

Rabbi Amsalem noted the urgency of connecting to people with Jewish ancestry. “We will never be at peace in our land until we perform this function, of bringing everyone together to serve Hashem, each in their own right,” Rabbi Amsalem said.

Finding Abraham’s Seed: The Biblical Promise

As the co-author of the book, “Do you have Jewish roots?”, and the founder of Shavei Israel, Michael Freund is intensely interested in genetic testing. He has been searching the far corners of the globe for almost 20 years, trying to find people with roots in Israel in order to help them reconnect to the Jewish People.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/michael-freund-shavei-israel.jpg

“Genetics has the potential to make the question of Jewish identity both more complicated and more interesting, “ Freund told Breaking Israel News. “It can open up new chapters in the destiny of the Jewish people as more people discover the secret of their past buried in their chromosomes. This is definitely an issue we are going to hear a lot more about in the near future.”

DNA testing has become one of the tools Freund uses in his search for communities around the world with ancestral connections to the Jewish people, but he recognizes its limits.

“DNA testing can be one factor that we consider as part of the big picture, but it is only one piece of the puzzle,” Freund explained. “We look at a broad range of factors, such as history, background, folklore and customs. Jewish identity is much more complex than the results you get in a petri dish.”

Freund predicted that advances in DNA technology “herald a global movement of return,” noting that this new wave of people discovering their Jewish ancestry may have a Biblical basis.

I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the seashore. Genesis 22:17

“There are an estimated 14-15 million Jews in a world population of seven billion. That makes us a very miniscule drop in a very large bucket. So what happened to those promises made to the Biblical Patriarchs?” asked Freund. “Perhaps the answer is that there are a lot more of us out there than we realize and maybe DNA technology will encourage many non-Jews with Jewish ancestry to reconnect with their Jewish roots, and encourage other Jews to return to the fold.”

Status Versus Identity

Greenspan is careful to add a disclaimer about the significance of the results of genetic tests.

“We are not saying that the DNA proves Jewish status,” he said. “It doesn’t work that way. We can scientifically prove that a person has Jewish ancestors but that does not give them Jewish status. That has its own specific set of rules, and isn’t a result of scientific proof.”

According to Jewish law, Jewish status is matrilineal, transferred from the mother to her children. The child of a Jewish father and a non-Jewish mother is not considered as having the status of a Jew.

Jewish status can also be the result of conversion. Therefore, the lack of Jewish ancestors does not mean a person is not Jewish, since a female ancestor could have converted to Judaism. Similarly, Jewish ancestry does not prove Jewish status, since a female ancestor may have converted to another religion.

Thus, a person can have the halachic status of being a Jew while not having the corresponding genetic identity. Or he can have Jewish ancestors, even on his mother’s side, and still not fulfill the halachic requirements of being a member of the tribe.

This does not detract from the significance of DNA testing, noted Greenspan.

“It is certainly an important factor for identity,” he contended. “For the past 15 years, I have seen how it affects people when they discover Jewish roots they were previously unaware of. Their connection was buried due to our tortured history. People take a DNA test, find out they have Jewish ancestry, and become intellectually interested. Usually they become supporters of Judaism and Israel.”

Freund cautioned that the issue is complex. “Identity is important and it is very personal,” he said. “But it does not obligate society or the community to accept that identity or confer recognition or status. There are many people who, based on the result of a DNA test, mistakenly assumed that they were Jews, and mistakenly assumed on that basis they would be able to make aliyah (immigrate to Israel).”

According to Freund, Jewish identity is found in the soul as much as it is in the chromosomes.

“I think the Jewish spark can never be extinguished. It might be buried or hidden, but at some point it is going to burst forth,” Freund said. “I’ve heard from countless people who related that they always felt an inexplicable attraction or connection to the Jewish people, and after DNA testing showed a genetic connection, it answered that question for them.”

Put Your Pen to the Document, Mr. Trump!
By Earl Cox November 24, 2016 , 8:00 am
Once Trump is sworn in Jan. 20, and his advisors and cabinet are in place, it is incumbent upon him not only to fulfill his promise to the millions who voted for him, but also to demonstrate to the international community that America stands firmly with our only democratic ally in the Middle East.

President-elect Donald J. Trump’s campaign addressed sensitive Middle East topics that included relocating the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem—thus recognizing it as Israel’s de facto capital. Though Jerusalem as Israel’s capital is firmly established by history and archeology, the U.S. Embassy’s relocation there has been a long-standing, yet hot-button issue.

Despite congressional support for the move and the resulting 1995 Jerusalem Embassy Act, presidential waivers have circumvented its implementation with every successive administration, starting with former President Bill Clinton. While the primary reason given for suspending this act is “to protect the national security interests of the United States” (Presidential Memorandum — Suspension of Limitations under the Jerusalem Embassy Act), every excuse in the book has been given for not signing the legislation, which lands on the president’s desk every six months. Until now.

Trump vowed that the embassy’s relocation to Jerusalem would be one of his first priorities upon taking office Jan. 20. After presidential hedging over the issue, and the marked chill in U.S.-Israeli relations under Obama, Israel finally will have a friend in the White House who comprehends her value to the United States and the increasingly menacing threats to her national security.
It is essential that Trump and his team move expeditiously to relocate the U.S. Embassy as one of the first items on his agenda. As a businessman with no political background, he undoubtedly will rely on the team he is now putting together, one that will include political, foreign affairs and military experts with knowledge of the Middle East, and a penchant to cut to the chase through the Gordian knot of minutia surrounding this issue. As wise King Solomon wrote,“There is safety in a multitude of counselors.”

While Trump’s move will likely provoke an uproar among Muslim states and their allies, we will soon have a president in the White House who has pledged to “make America great again.” America will only be great once it sheds its paper-tiger image, which has dismayed people at home and abroad, perplexing our allies and bolstering our enemies. It is evident that Trump intends to elevate America’s image by exercising strength in leadership, and thus restoring American influence overseas.

Once Trump is sworn in Jan. 20, and his advisors and cabinet are in place, it is incumbent upon him not only to fulfill his promise to the millions who voted for him, but also to demonstrate to the international community that America stands firmly with our only democratic ally in the Middle East. Without a doubt, fulfilling his campaign promise is in the best interests of both Israel and the United States. Israel is on the front lines for America, and America should be on the front lines for Israel.

In my view, Trump is a standard-bearer. I hope other nations will follow suit and move their own embassies to Jerusalem, once and for all recognizing it as the undivided capital of the sovereign nation of Israel.

A White House That is for Settling the Land Of Israel
By Ronn Torossian
The Trump White House is shaping up to be one that is comfortable with the ways of Rav Kook, Menachem Begin and Ze’ev Jabotinsky. Free market values, a whole Land of Israel and a stand against radical terrorists.
In 2008, Barack Obama said: “I think there is a strain within the pro-Israel community that says unless you adopt a unwavering pro-Likud approach to Israel that you’re anti-Israel and that can’t be the measure of our friendship with Israel.”

Obama reportedly described Israel’s elected government as “extreme right”, and told Peter Beinart, the American Jewish journalist who supports a boycott of Israel to “hang in there.”

In a 2015 speech at the White House, he noted “I came to know Israel as a young man through these incredible images of kibbutzim, and Moshe Dayan, and Golda Meir, and Israel overcoming incredible odds in the ’67 war. The notion of pioneers who set out not only to safeguard a nation, but to remake the world. Not only to make the desert bloom, but to allow their values to flourish; to ensure that the best of Judaism would thrive.”

But the reality is that Obama has consistently been hostile towards Israel.

If the Obama White House viewed Israel through the prism of kibbutzim, Moshe Dayan and Golda Meir, the Trump White House is shaping up to be one that is comfortable with the ways of Rav Kook, Menachem Begin and Ze’ev Jabotinsky. Free market values, a whole Land of Israel and a stand against radical terrorists.

A Fox News op-ed asked half-seriously today, “Did we just elect our first Jewish President?”

As the piece noted, “…Donald Trump is as close as you can come to being our first Jewish president…..When he bought his Florida home and turned it into a popular and exclusive country club, he specifically opened the membership up to Jews. Mar-a-Lago was the first club that ever allowed Jews in Palm Beach. Donald changed the customs of the most-wealthy, WASP-y town in America to favor Jews.

Donald is family-oriented and clearly loves and dotes on all his children. He is bursting with pride at his children’s success. To Jews, family and children are everything…..Donald’s daughter Ivanka has converted to orthodox Judaism. That makes Donald the first president in the history of America with orthodox Jewish grandkids…

Donald is handing his business over to his children. That is the goal of every Jewish businessman in history. Donald is the most relentless person I’ve ever met. Relentless is a very uniquely Jewish trait. Jews are relentless fighters- we have survived thousands of years of hate, discrimination, persecution, robbery, slavery and murder.

Many of Donald’s political views and policies are tailor-made for Jews. He could be the most pro-Israel president in history. Donald will always stand with the Jews of Israel.

image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/461-BIN-SubscribeUSIsraelRelations-600WIDE.jpg

How strong are Donald’s bonds to Israel? He was the Grand Marshal of the annual “Salute to Israel” parade….His stance on “extreme vetting” and stopping the mass importation of Muslim refugees should be welcomed and enthusiastically embraced by every American Jew. Donald’s goal is the same as mine- keeping people out of our country who could commit acts of terrorism and who have an unnatural hatred and prejudice toward Jews…

One of Donald’s first priorities as president is to re-negotiate the Iran deal- perhaps the worst treaty ever negotiated in U.S. history and a danger to Israel’s future survival…

Donald is the strongest anti-terrorism president possible. He understands our enemy is radical Islam. He uses the words “Islamic extremist” in the same sentence.”

Jason Greenblatt, is one of three members of Trump’s Israel Advisory Committee, he’s Modern Orthodox, was a student of Yeshivat Har Etzion and notes that this administration “does not view Jewish settlements as an obstacle to peace.” David Friedman, Trump’s other Israel advisor is an outspoken supporter of Judea & Samaria, and serves as the President of American Friends of Bet El Institutions.As he’s written perceptively on Arutz Sheva, “The US State Department – with a hundred-year history of anti-Semitism — promotes the payoff of corrupt Palestinians in exchange for their duplicitous agreement to support a two-state solution.”

Can any friend of Israel believe that these people can betray the Jewish State? The Trump White House has the potential to be a tremendous friend of Israel.

You Are Being Lied To By Daniel Greenfield d November 21, 2016 , 10:00 am
The media bubble is a lie. Everything inside it is a lie. It’s a virtual space filled with propaganda as pervasive as anything out of the USSR or North Korea which utterly misrepresents everything to those inside it.
Media schizophrenia.

Every quantum leap in mass communications also made possible a vast improvement in propaganda techniques. Nazi and Soviet propaganda looks as crude to us as a Babbage calculating machine. Virtual reality isn’t something that’s coming. It’s here. It’s been here for a while. The potent combination of media budgets and crowdsourced social media distribution has allowed for a previously unparalleled level of propaganda that creates and inhabits its own virtual reality.

There’s a name for that sort of thing. Schizophrenia.

What happens when the schizophrenic media reality collapses when it comes into too sharp of a conflict with reality is the same behavior that schizophrenics exhibit when their perceptions of the world conflict with the real world.

The people venting and rioting and screaming were living in a cozy reality. Everyone in that progressive reality understood that history was on their side, that the majority was with them and that the right was a decaying mass of racists and corporations soon to be swept away by the tide of change.

But this wasn’t reality. It was a carefully constructed narrative that fooled even the people who were building it. It was a virtual world overlaid over the real world. Its narratives were so integrated with the real world that it seemed as if it were real. There were stories and polls. Everyone in their social media bubble, except a few crazy uncles agreed with them. All the celebrities were on board.

And then the holodeck got switched off.
It wasn’t a unique experience. Most Nazis didn’t understand what was happening when the tanks broke through to Berlin. The average Russian wasn’t prepared for the fall of the USSR.

Propaganda is a very effective tool for managing a population. But the trouble with a lie is that sooner or later it falls apart. A narrative isn’t reality. It’s a story we tell. Reality has no story except one shaped by a far higher power than any mere mortal. No ideological victory is permanent.

The ideological narrative of the right side of history imbibed by the left is a delusion. Ideological victories are temporary. Even cultural dominance is a very slippery thing. It is a subtle tool that isn’t much good for the gross kind of control that it wants. A dictatorship like the USSR only lasts for so long. And then it falls and its ideology that everyone was forced to study once is forgotten.

A society can be transformed and changed. But the results of that change will ultimately be non-ideological. The USSR gave way to a totalitarian regime that is uninterested in Marxism-Leninism, but has duplicated everything else from the cult of personality to the secret police to the bribe economy to the pointless efforts at expansionism that waste resources and feed the hatred of its neighbors. The Communists failed to fundamentally transform Russia into their ideological paradise, but they certainly left a huge crater of a non-ideological stamp on it.

Obama has changed America. But the left will find that these changes will be largely non-ideological. Radical change breaks the system. It leaves scars. It crushes civic institutions. That. more than any of the ideological victories, will be the real impact of the Obama years.

The left’s conviction that demographic change will give them ultimate power was always a foolish delusion. Latin America is not an exclusively left-wing domain, though it can sometimes look that way. Barring an overt tyranny, there would always be a right. Its values might have little in common with those of traditional American conservatism, but it would exist even if the left managed to achieve its demographic transformation.

The left’s efforts at absolute power scar societies. That can be easily seen across Asia, Latin America and the territories of the Warsaw Pact. It can also be increasingly seen in the United States.
The level of political polarization continues to rise. There is increasingly no middle ground. The left blames this on Republicans, but historically it’s the left that has abused its power to force change more than the right. Obama taught a master class in simply doing whatever you want because history is on your side. The reaction to that led directly to President Trump. And too much of the left is incapable of the self-awareness needed to grasp this simple fact.

The rules of a society exist for a reason. If you break them, expect everyone else to break them too. And expect that the result will be a society in which those rules no longer matter.

If you walk into a bar and shoot someone… and then get away with it, then the next step is that everyone else will be doing it too. The left is shocked, baffled and angered at the consequences of the violence it has inflicted on American society. It has inhabited the narrative of victimhood so thoroughly that it isn’t aware of the fact that its “change” is a form of violence.

Instead of stopping, the left is doubling down. It is convinced that it can break through if it pushes hard enough. And it’s probably right. But its victories are temporary. The damage is long-lasting.

The left broke through the Bush years with Obama. But it hadn’t grasped that its unprecedented delegitimization of Bush led directly to the Republican delegitimization of Obama. It wasn’t racism that led Republicans to reject Obama as illegitimate. That was part of the comforting narrative that the left told itself. Republicans were reacting to the new rules created by the left.

Bush was illegitimate. Therefore Obama was illegitimate. Therefore Trump is illegitimate. Therefore whoever succeeds him will be illegitimate. This is a non-ideological change created in the name of ideology. Any future president will be deemed illegitimate by the losing side.

The right is not free of blame in all this. But it’s reacting to what the left does rather than initiating it. It takes the ball and runs with it further down the field. Then the left runs with it down the field for ten times the distance. And the rest is history and crumbling pillars and great wastelands.

The left won’t win. But it can destroy America. And many of its ideologues hate the country enough that they would consider that a victory. If nothing else, America provided a model that served as a counterweight to the ideal leftist society. Wrecking that model is already an ideological win for the left. The right didn’t have to fix Communist societies. That was a bonus. It just had to wreck them. The left doesn’t have to fix America. It just has to wreck it so that it’s seen as unworkable.

The question though is how many Americans to the left of center really want to be part of such a project. Not many. That is why the media bubble really exists. The narratives exist less for the sake of the center, let alone the right, but to manage the constituency of the left. The narrative is already healing after the shock of the Trump win. Activists are being urged to rally around victim allies and continue fighting until the bitter end. The bitter end being the collapse of everything.

The bubble is a lie. Everything inside it is a lie. It’s a virtual space filled with propaganda as pervasive as anything out of the USSR or North Korea which utterly misrepresents everything to those inside it. The USSR could keep the game going longer because it controlled the vertical space of total power as well as the horizontal space of messaging. The left’s grip on power is shaky. Its grip on messaging is total. And that is where media schizophrenia creeps in.

Citizens of totalitarian regimes recognize that they are being lied to. Statistics show a level of recognition of media bias among Americans on par with that of any totalitarian regime.

The media should be panicking over such numbers. But it doesn’t care if 80 or 70 percent of Americans don’t trust them. They are a secondary audience. Its core goal is to manage the beliefs of those who do. They are the revolutionary vanguard. They have to be shaped and directed.

And when they look over the iron curtain and past the media wall, reality no longer fits the narrative. Media schizophrenia kicks in. And they lose their grip on reality and lose their minds.

Donald Trump and the Return of European Anti-Americanism
By Soeren Kern
European criticism of Trump goes far beyond a simple displeasure with the man who will be the next president. The condemnation reveals a deep-seated contempt for the United States.

and for American voters who democratically elected a candidate committed to restoring American economic and military strength.

The primary cause of the global disorder is the lack of American leadership at home and abroad. A series of feckless decisions by Obama to reduce American military influence abroad have created geopolitical power vacuums that are being filled by countries and ideologies that are innately hostile to Western interests and values.

For the past seven decades, the U.S. has spent millions of dollars annually to guarantee German security, although Germany steadfastly refuses to honor a NATO pledge to spend 2% of GDP on defense spending. Germans are now offended that Trump is asking them to pay their fair share for their own defense.

Although President Obama’s foreign policy missteps have made Europe much less safe than it was eight years ago, European elites have overlooked Obama’s mistakes because he is a “globalist” who seems to favor recreating the U.S. in the European image. Trump, by contrast, is a nationalist who wants to rebuild the U.S. in the American, not the European, image.

European anti-Americanism is certain to escalate in the years ahead, not because of Trump or his policies, but because “globalists” appear desperate to save the failing European Union, an untransparent, unaccountable, anti-democratic, sovereignty-grabbing alternative to the nation state.

European anti-Americanism — which was on the wane during the presidency of Barack Obama, who steered the United States on a course of globalism rather than nationalism — is back with a vengeance.

Europe’s media establishment has greeted Donald Trump’s election victory with a vitriol not seen since the George W. Bush presidency, when anti-Americanism in Europe was at fever pitch.

Since the American election on November 9, European television, radio and print media have produced an avalanche of negative stories, editorials and commentary that seethe with rage over the outcome of the vote.

European criticism of Trump goes far beyond a simple displeasure with the man who will be the next president. The condemnation reveals a deep-seated contempt for the United States, and for American voters who democratically elected a candidate committed to restoring American economic and military strength.

If the past is any indication of the future, European anti-Americanism will be a pervasive feature of transatlantic relations during the Trump presidency.

Although European opinion-shapers have focused much of their indignation on the threat Trump allegedly poses to global order, the president-elect will inherit a world that is significantly more chaotic and insecure than it was when Obama became president in January 2009.

The primary cause of the global disorder is the lack of American leadership — leading from behind — at home and abroad.

A series of feckless decisions by Obama to reduce American military influence abroad have created geopolitical power vacuums that are being filled by countries and ideologies that are innately hostile to Western interests and values. China, Russia, Iran, North Korea and radical Islam — among many others — have all been emboldened to challenge the United States and its allies with impunity.

European elites have been mostly silent about Obama’s foreign policy failures, but are now lashing out at Trump for pledging to restore order by “making America great again.”

As during the Bush administration, anti-Americanism in Europe is once again being driven by Germany, a country that was effectively rebuilt by the United States after the Second World War. The Marshall Plan granted West Germany some $1.5 billion ($15 billion in 2016 dollars) in reconstruction aid between 1948 and 1951.

For the past seven decades, the United States has spent millions of dollars annually to guarantee German security, although Germany steadfastly refuses to honor a NATO pledge to spend a minimum of 2% of GDP on defense spending. Germany spent only 1.16% of GDP on its own defense in 2015 and 1.15% in 2016. German officials are now offended that Trump is asking them to pay their fair share for their own defense.

Following is a small sampling of recent European commentary on Donald Trump and the United States:

In Germany, the Hamburg-based newsmagazine Der Spiegel, one of the largest-circulation publications in Europe, published a cover with an image of a giant meteor in the shape of Trump’s head hurtling towards the earth. The headline reads: “The End of the World (As We Know It). The issue includes more than 50 pages of related content, including an article by Dirk Kurbjuweit entitled, “One-Hundred Years of Fear: America Has Abdicated Its Leadership of the West.” He wrote:

“For 100 years, the United States was the leader of the free world. With the election of Donald Trump, America has now abdicated that role. It is time for Europe, and Angela Merkel, to step into the void….

“Trump, who wants nothing to do with globalization; Trump, who preaches American nationalism, isolation, partial withdrawal from world trade and zero responsibility for a global problem like climate change….

“We now face emptiness — fear of the void. What will happen to the West, to Europe, to Germany without the United States as its leading power?

Biblical Message in Recent Wave of Terrorist Arson
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz November 25, 2016 , 11:00 am
“And call ye on the name of your god, and I will call on the name of Hashem; and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God.’ And all the people answered and said: ‘It is well spoken.’” I Kings 18:24 (The Israel Bible™)

Hundreds of terror fires set by arsonists burn across Israel, November 24, 2016. (Video screenshot)
As fires rage across the Carmel region, the result of terrorist arson, some Israelis look to the Bible to understand a deeper lesson of what these flames mean.

A national emergency was declared as a fire of enormous proportions threatens entire regions in Israel. Over 60,000 residents were evacuated from the Haifa area, and public transportation was shut down in certain areas. Several houses and automobiles were consumed by the flames. Hundreds of firefighters struggled to react as fires cropped up suddenly in hundreds of separate spots, indicating the blazes were set intentionally. Greece and Cyprus sent fire-fighting airplanes to help. Newly set fires now threaten Jerusalem and the surrounding area.

Israel’s police chief Roni Alsheich said on Thursday afternoon that there were “some cases of arson, and lots of cases that are not arson…. It’s likely that there is a nationalistic motive in some of the arson cases.” Alsheich added: “Some suspects have been arrested… I don’t think it is organized (arson).”

Education Minister Naftali Bennet (Jewish Home) had no doubts, telling Channel 2 News the fires were “a major wave of arson… terrorism in every sense of the word.”

Malkah Fleisher, a Jerusalem resident originally from Texas, had no doubts that this was an attack on Israel, but she understood a deeper lesson in the tragedy. She opened her Bible and saw a clear link between the fires raging now and fire that once raged in the same place so many years ago.

“It dawned on me that this is not the first time the nation of Israel has seen fire on Mount Carmel,” she told Breaking Israel News. Fleisher took to social media and posted a powerful message, comparing the blaze raging out of control on the Carmel Mountain today to the holy fire Elijah the Prophet called down from the heavens when he faced off against the priests of Ba’al.

And call ye on the name of your god, and I will call on the name of Hashem; and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God.’ And all the people answered and said: ‘It is well spoken.’ I Kings 18:24

“Today, on this site of holy fire, our enemies are using fire against us. Is it a divine message for the nation? I’m not a prophet, I can’t rightly say,” she posted on Facebook. “But I KNOW that the duel is still on between Israel and our physical and spiritual enemies. May we merit to witness the destruction of those who seek to destroy us, and another miraculous rain on Carmel.”

“We need to recall the true value of that mountain and our ancient relationship with it, if not also to take the opportunity to do some introspection as that beloved mountain fights the flames which are trying to consume it,” Fleisher wrote. “The war for the mountain is still on. When the Jewish people know who they are and why they live on Har hacarmel – or anywhere else in Israel – they will have the confidence to do what is right. If those stories can come to our aid, then they are still a little bit alive.”

Malkah’s husband, Yishai Fleisher, the international spokesman for the holy city of Hebron, also learned a deep lesson while staring into the flames set by the enemies of Israel.

“The real tragedy is that these terrorists have a connection to nature and the land, but they use it to destroy,” noted Fleisher. “They know that the conditions, the drought and the strong winds, are perfect for this type of attack.”

“If we escaped the fires of the Holocaust, we’re certainly not going to succumb to this,” stated Fleisher, quoting the prophet Obadiah.

And the house of Jacob shall be a fire and the house of Joseph a flame and the house of Esav for stubble and they shall kindle in them and devour them; and there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esav; for Hashemhath spoken. Obadiah 1:18

“This fire they lit will come back again, but in the manner that the prophet said,’ noted Fleisher.

Arson became a call to battle as Arabs flooded social media, praising the fires. Jerusalem Post reported that “Tel_Aviv_IsBurning” was the most common Arabic hashtag trending on Arab social media platforms on Thursday morning, many citing recent legislation to limit early morning muezzin (calls to prayer broadcast over loudspeakers) as the cause for what they saw as divine retribution.

Fleisher compared the burning of forests to the Philistines stopping up Abraham’s wells in order to drive Isaac away.

Now all the wells which his father’s servants had digged in the days of Avraham his father, the Philistines had stopped them, and filled them with earth. Genesis 26:15

“The Philistines needed the water also,” noted Fleisher. “But they hated Isaac so much, and recognized that he was stronger, but their hatred for him, and for his God, was greater than their love of life,” said Fleisher. “The Jews have a connection to the land but we use it to make the desert bloom. This arson makes it so clear that it isn’t about a nationalist struggle. They don’t want to build.They just want to watch the land burn.”

“What they don’t understand is that the Jews have always and will always come back from the ashes. Jews are used to this,” Fleisher concluded. “We will just develop better fire-fighting systems and ways to grow forests. Our fire is a fire of creation, of building and family, of channeling God into the world.”

Rabbi Supporter: Trump’s Failure to Thank God Could Cost Him Messianic Chance
By Dr. Rivkah Lambert Adler November 23, 2016 , 11:30 am
“And in that day shall ye say: ‘Give thanks unto Hashem, proclaim His name, declare His doings among the peoples, make mention that His name is exalted.” Isaiah 12:4 (The Israel Bible™)

President-elect Donald Trump’s failure to thank God in his acceptance speech could be a fateful mistake, rabbinic scholar and international speaker Rabbi Mendel Kessin said last week, comparing Trump’s first post-election misstep to a blunder which cost King Hezekiah the opportunity to usher in Messianic times.

“There’s not one mention of God” in the speech, “Yet [his election is] the greatest miracle,” Rabbi Kessin pointed out, noting the hand of God in Trump’s unlikely win. “It’s the greatest upset in American history. Clearly it was God. There is no other explanation. How could you not give credit to God Himself?
“That’s a tremendous avlah (failing). We don’t even understand what the avlah is. It cost the mashichus (Messiahship) of Chizkiyahu (Hezekiah)… How could you not say, at the outset, ‘The first one I want to thank is God Almighty’?”
The second Book of Kings describes how, in the time of King Hezekiah, when 185,000 of Sennacherib’s troops surrounded Jerusalem, God sent a plague and killed them all in one night.
And it came to pass that night, that the angel of Hashem went forth, and smote in the camp of Ashur a hundred fourscore and five thousand; and when men arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses. 2 Kings 19:35

Brush Fires Blaze Out of Control Throughout Israel, Hundreds Evacuated
“Then the fire of Hashem fell, and consumed the burnt-offering, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench.”
I (Kings 18:38)
Police Commissioner Roni Alsheich said Tuesday evening that it will take at least two more days to bring a series of brush fires under control as fire crews continue to battle high winds and unseasonably dry conditions around the country.
As of this writing, at least five fires are burning out of control around the country, in Zichron Yaakov, Dolev, Kiryat Gat, Gush Etzion and the Western Galilee. More than 200 homes in Zichron Yaakov, south of Haifa, and Dolev, in the Binyamin region have been evacuated due to the fires. Thirteen people have been treated for smoke inhalation, mostly at Hillel Yafe Medical Center in Hadera. 20 homes have been damaged, including 12 that have been completely destroyed.
Health officials said that Zichron Yaakov residents should remain indoors with windows closed in order to avoid inhaling smoke.

Trump is Secretly Jewish, Claims Top Hamas Official
“Unrighteous witnesses rise up; they ask me of things that I know not.” (Psalms 35:11)
Trump is Secretly Jewish, Claims Top Hamas Official
By JNS November 22, 2016 , 8:30 am
“Unrighteous witnesses rise up; they ask me of things that I know not.” Psalms 35:11 (The Israel Bible™)

A senior official from the Palestinian terror group Hamas believes President-elect Donald Trump is secretly Jewish due to Trump’s love for money.

“Trump loves the Jews, and not only because he likes the Jewish religion. I do not rule out the possibility that he is a Jew,” Hamas official Mahmoud al-Zahar told Al-Jazeera earlier this month, according to a new report from the Middle East Media Research Institute.

“He loves the Jewish religion,” al-Zahar added, “and the most important thing in the Jewish religion is Jewish money.”

Following Trump’s election victory, Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said the identity of the U.S. president makes little difference to the Palestinian terror group.

“The Palestinian people is not very much concerned about the changes in American policies towards the Palestinian cause because such a policy is constant and is based on bias in favor of the Israeli occupation,” Zuhri said. “However, we urge the American president to reevaluate this policy and to work on bringing justice to the Palestinians.”

Video of Heavenly Cloud Halo and Shofar Sounds Over Jerusalem Goes Viral [WATCH]
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz November 22, 2016 , 11:30 am
“If a Shofar shall be blown in a city, can it be that the inhabitants will not be shaken?” Amos 3:6 (The Israel Bible™)
image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/halo-3.png
Heavenly “halo” over Jerusalem (YouTube Screenshot)
Two days before the Jewish holidays, a video of a strange cloud formation over Jerusalem accompanied by thunderous blasts from rams’ horns took the internet by storm, stunning millions in a pre-Judgement Day sight that seemed too good to be true. Unfortunately, it was.

The video showed a blue sky with a spectacular unbroken ring of glowing white clouds hanging low over the city. Filmed from a balcony, one man is seen from the back, staring at the amazing phenomenon, while another tells him in Hebrew to be quiet. The camera pans from side to side, filming the entire unbroken halo over Israel’s capital. The sound of many shofars (rams’ horns) is heard, the blasts rising and falling.

Heavenly Halo Over Jerusalem

The location seen in the video is easily recognizable to those familiar with Jerusalem. Filmed from a balcony in the prominent Holy Land Apartment complex in south Jerusalem, Teddy Stadium, a major sports venue, is seen in the foreground.

The video quickly began to attract attention on social media. The footage was used in another video which garnered over a million views on YouTube. Some commenters claimed it was a miraculous occurrence, while others rejected this claim, saying it was a naturally occurring phenomenon. Both sides of the argument were wrong.

image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/433-BIN-Subscribe-BiblicalProphecy-600WIDE.jpg

Not only laypeople were fooled. Several religious sites, both Jewish and Christian, reposted the video enthusiastically. Rabbi Yosef Mizrachi, an Israeli rabbi who runs outreach programs, reposted the video with a screenshot outlining the image of a shofar that he claims appears in the center of the cloud halo.

image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/shofar-in-sky-300x207.png
Rabbi Mizrachi’s screenshot. (Facebook)
Nana 10 Online, a Hebrew news site, succeeded in tracking down the source of the video. According to Nana, the man who filmed the video was quite surprised at the impact his video made. Wishing to remain nameless, he explained to Nana that he created the video on his cell-phone as a unique New Year’s greeting to his friends, altering the original with a video editing program called After Effects. He had posted it on his social media pages, from where it was reposted and shared, its popularity growing exponentially.

As social media becomes more prevalent with web-connected devices covering the planet’s surface, videos of unusual phenomenon become more common. Sometimes for pleasure and sometimes with mischievous intent, people create these videos on their computers. A similar rash of videos, recording unexplained shofar sounds around the world, appeared before the holidays last year. It could be that such videos will become a tradition, a precursor to the Jewish holidays, part prank, and part wake-up call.

But one day, it could be that a similar video will surface, filmed by an average bystander, showing the arrival of the Messiah. And that time, it won’t be edited.

Trump Win to Spur Massive Building Wave in Jerusalem
By Abra Forman November 21, 2016 , 11:30 am
“And the king sent and called for Shimi, and said unto him: Build thee a house in Yerushalayim, and dwell there, and go not forth thence any whither.” I Kings 2:36 (The Israel Bible™)

The election of Donald Trump has led to the fast-tracking of plans to build 1,400 new homes in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Ramat Shlomo as Israel anticipates an end to the “de facto” building freeze in place during the Obama administration.

An official from the Jerusalem municipality said the construction in Ramat Shlomo, which is located past the Green Line, is set to be approved in light of Trump’s victory. Trump is widely expected to ease the US’s hardline anti-settlement policy, which led to frosty relations between the two allies over the past eight years and strangled building in Judea and Samaria.
“In Jerusalem, it’s as if Trump is already in office,” said the municipality official on Sunday, the Jerusalem Post reported. “The problem is that nobody knows what his policies will actually be.”
He dismissed any denouncement from the lame-duck administration. “Even if the [current] State Department or White House issues a condemnation, it won’t be worth much at this point.”
Construction in Ramat Shlomo has been hotly contested under Obama’s State Department, which claims that building Jewish homes in East Jerusalem threatens the possibility of a two-state solution.

Will Daniel’s 70 Weeks End This Year?
Ancient Secret of Daniel’s 70 Weeks Predicts End of Days Will Come This Year
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz November 21, 2016 , 12:30 pm
“Seventy weeks are decreed upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sin, and to forgive iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal vision and prophet, and to anoint the most holy place.” Daniel 9:24

image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/daniel-1.jpg
(Breaking Israel News)
An obscure 300-year old interpretation of the Book of Daniel presents a precise calculation which indicates the prophet spoke of this year as bringing the end of days. One rabbi agrees, believing that Daniel’s ancient, hidden secrets are being revealed now as never before.

Certainly one of the most prominent sources for prophecies concerning the end of days, Daniel’s prophecy of 70 weeks clearly refers to the end of times, but it is enigmatic and difficult to understand.

One explanation was recently offered by a blogger known as Yeranen Yaakov, who refers to an esoteric source called Aggadat Ribbi Yishmael (the fables of Rabbi Ishmael), written by 17th century Rabbi Meir Halevi Horowitz. Rabbi Horowitz collected teachings about the end of days and formulated a theory about the Book of Daniel.

And I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he lifted up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and swore by Him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and a half; and when they have made an end of breaking in pieces the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished. Daniel 12:7

Rabbi Horowitz interpreted a ‘time’ as 700 years. He based this on three reasons:

1) It corresponds to the number of years that Israel angered God from the time Joshua brought the Israelites into the land, which, according to Rabbi Horowitz, totalled 700 years.

2) According to the Talmud, non-Jews were given 1000 years to subjugate the Jews. Rabbi Horowitz subtracted the 300 years of exile in Babylonia, Greece, and Persia from the total that Israel should have suffered.

3) Rabbi Horowitz also interpreted the seventy weeks described in the Book of Daniel as a total of 50 cycles of double shmittah (sabbatical) cycles. One cycle is seven years. A double sabbatical is 14 years. 50 cycles of 14 years equals 700 years.

Rabbi Horowitz then did a calculation based on the phrase from Daniel, “time, times, and a half”, adding “time” (moed), meaning one, “times” (moadim), meaning two, and then “a half” of one. This is a total of 3.5 times. Rabbi Horowitz calculated this as meaning 700 multiplied by 3.5, or 2450.
image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/433-BIN-Subscribe-BiblicalProphecy-600WIDE.jpg
Rabbi Horowitz calculated the beginning of the exile from the first stage of the Babylonian Exile, which began in the Hebrew year 3327 (434 BCE). He added 2,450, the result of his calculations for  “time, times, and a half” from the Book of Daniel, and arrived at the result that the Hebrew year in which the Messiah should arrive is 5777 – the current year.

Yeranen Yaakov goes on to bring another verse which refers to the Babylonian Exile using the expression moadim (times), similar to the Book of Daniel. The prophecy in Jeremiah contains a hint that this year, 5777, will be the final year before Messiah. It describes a prophetic vision that after the exile, there will be a return to the Land of Israel.

Hashem showed me, and behold two baskets of figs set before the temple of Hashem; after that Nevuchadretzar king of Bavel had carried away captive Yechonyah the son of Yehoyakim, king of Yehudah, and the princes of Yehudah, with the craftsmen and smiths, from Yerushalayim, and had brought them to Bavel. Jeremiah 24:1

The gematria (numerology) in Hebrew, of the words of the verse, beginning with the words “before the Temple”, equals 5777.

לִפְנֵי הֵיכַל יְהוָה: אַחֲרֵי הַגְלוֹת נְבוּכַדְרֶאצַּר מֶלֶךְ-בָּבֶל אֶת-יְכָנְיָהוּ בֶן-יְהוֹיָקִים מֶלֶךְ-יְהוּדָה וְאֶת-שָׂרֵי יְהוּדָה וְאֶת-הֶחָרָשׁ וְאֶת-הַמַּסְגֵּר, מִירוּשָׁלִַם, וַיְבִאֵם, בָּבֶל.

Biblical scholars have struggled with the Book of Daniel for thousands of years, so what makes these interpretations any different? Rabbi Yosef Berger, rabbi of the Tomb of King David on Mount Zion, explained why ancient prophecies like Daniel are being studied with new understanding today.

“What Daniel wrote about the End of Days, our greatest sages have been trying to understand for generations. But the real meanings were intentionally hidden. Daniel himself said that these things will remain hidden until the end,” he told Breaking Israel News.

And he said: ‘Go thy way, Daniel; for the words are shut up and sealed till the time of the end.’ Daniel 12:9

Rabbi Berger noted that Rabbi Moses Ben Maimon, the preeminent medieval Sephardic Torah authority known by the acronym Rambam, forbade attempts to figure an exact date for the arrival of the Messiah. But Rabbi Berger believes that this does not apply to our times.

“It is written in the Zohar (the foundational source for Jewish mysticism) that in the days preceding the Messiah, all secrets will be revealed, and even small children will be able to explain explain prophecies and the most obscure sources,” Rabbi Berger concluded. “Now, in our day, everything is being opened up. We are discovering these sources that hint at the Messiah that have existed for generations, and only now can we interpret them properly. This is a clear sign that they are now being intentionally revealed.”

German Evangelicals Renounce Centuries-Old Mission to Convert Jews 
By Abra Forman November 20, 2016 , 11:30 am
“Happy is the man whom Thou choosest, and bringest near, that he may dwell in Thy courts; may we be satisfied with the goodness of Thy house, the holy place of Thy temple!” Psalms 65:5 (The Israel Bible™)

The Evangelical Church in Germany (EKD) last week officially renounced its centuries-old mission to evangelize and convert Jews after a resolution on the topic received unanimous approval at the EKD’s annual synod.
The central decision-making body for Germany’s main Protestant church, encompassing 23 million members, passed the resolution declaring that Christians “are not called to show Israel the path to God and his salvation” on November 9 in Magdeburg, Religion News reported.
“All efforts to convert Jews contradict our commitment to the faithfulness of God and the election of Israel,” read the resolution.
It explained that since God never renounced His covenant with Israel, Jews do not need to embrace the Christian covenant to be saved.

American Armor Discovered in the Hands of Hezbollah

— Tobias Schneider (@tobiaschneider) November 13, 2016
Defense analyst Tobias Schneider’s theory is that the equipment was taken from American military aid sent to the Lebanese Armed Forces, who received over $200 million in US military aid in 2016, though the Lebanese military officially denied being the source.
An anonymous State Department official supported the Lebanese military’s denial in a statement to the Washington Post.
“The Lebanese military has publicly stated that the M113s depicted online were never part of their equipment roster,” the official said. “Our initial assessment concurs: The M113s allegedly in Hezbollah’s possession in Syria are unlikely to have come from the Lebanese military. We are working closely with our colleagues in the Pentagon and in the Intelligence Community on to resolve this issue.”

How Hebrew Reveals Deep Hidden Meanings of Biblical Names
By Tsivya Fox November 20, 2016 , 8:30 am
“Leah conceived, and bore a son, and she called his name Reuben; for she said: ‘Because the LORD hath looked upon my affliction; for now my husband will love me.’” Genesis 29:32 (The Israel Bible™)
image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/abraham.jpg
Abraham journeying to the land of Israel with his sons, Isaac and Ishmael. (József Molnár, 1850/Wikimedia Commons)
Many people have either a Biblical Hebrew name or a name which connects to the Bible. In Jewish tradition, one’s name contains a spiritual dimension. Naming a child is not just a random happening that parents impose upon their children. The Bible is actually replete with stories which reflect the importance of a name.

“There are generally three ways in which a Hebrew name expresses something important about a person,” explained Roni Segal, academic adviser for eTeacher, an online language academy specializing in Biblical Hebrew, to Breaking Israel News. “Sometimes the name represents the essence of a person. Sometimes it reflects an aspect from the birth the child and sometime it shows the purpose of the person in this world.”

The essence of the first man is reflected in his name. Called Adam, we know that he was created from the earth – adama (אדמה) in Hebrew.

Biblical Father Jacob’s name is Yaakov in Hebrew. This name is used to record the unusual circumstances of his birth. Jacob emerged from his mother’s womb holding the heel of his twin brother, Esau.

Heel in Hebrew is akev (עָקֵב) the same root as Yaakov. Already from the womb, Jacob was on the heels of Esau, chasing the rights of the first-born child. The Bible records that Esau received his name because he emerged hairy, as if he were “completely made”. In Hebrew, asah means to “make” (עשה).

Similarly, although Biblical commentators state that Moses – Moshe (משה) in Hebrew – had no less than ten names, he is generally referred to only by his Egyptian name, Moshe. Exodus 2:10 explains that Pharaoh’s daughter saw a child in a basket floating down the Nile River. She drew him out and became his step-mother, a dangerous act as it was decreed that all Jewish males be killed. She named him Moshe, which literally means “to draw out”. This is the name used throughout the Bible to give honor to this act of great self-sacrifice.

There are several times in the Bible when God changes a person’s name to better reflect their purpose in this world. For instance, Abraham’s original name was Abram

(אַבְרָם֙). Abram means “high father.” By changing his name to Abraham (אַבְרָהָם), his future mission is reflected; Abraham means the “father of multitudes”. He becomes the father to all who believe in one God.

image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/446-EN_BIB_Journey_600X150.jpg

God also changed the name of Abraham’s wife. In order for Abraham to fulfill his mission, he needed his wife by his side in a similarly lofty spiritual level. Therefore, God changed her name from Sarai (שָׂרי), which means “princess”, to Sarah (שָׂרה) meaning the “mother of nations”. Together they become the parents of innumerable disciples.

Lastly, we have Biblical צother Leah naming her children to represent her feelings and desires at the time of their births. We know that Jacob’s first choice for a wife was Leah’s sister Rachel. But Leah’s father tricked him into marrying her first. In order to provide Leah with appeasement for being the second-choice wife, God opened Leah’s womb and she merited to give birth to four sons.

Each of their names tells of Leah’s emotional state at the time. Her first son, Reuven

(רְאוּבֵן) is named from the Hebrew word ra’a (רָאָה) to which means “see”. The Bible states, “God saw my pain at being the less-desired wife and my husband will see that I deserve to be married to him.”

Leah’s second son is Shimon (שִׁמְעוֹן). Shimon comes from the Hebrew word shema

(שָׁמַע) which means “hear”. Leah expresses that God heard her cries and blessed her with a second son.

Levy (לֵוִי) is related to the Hebrew word for attach, y’lavey (יִלָּוֶה). Jacob named him Levy to express that he will be more attached to Leah through this child.

Most telling is the fourth son’s name, Yehuda (יְהוּדָה). Yehuda comes from the Hebrew word for praise, oh-deh (אוֹדֶה). With this birth, Leah publicly praises God for giving her a great portion in the creation of the tribes of the Jewish people. Additionally, it also represents her essence. She is known for praising God both in challenging and good times.

“By reading the Bible in the language it was written, Hebrew, we understand much deeper God’s messages for His children and all of mankind,” shared Segal.

Tea Party Republican Mike Pompeo, Congressman for Kansas ,  was picked by Trump , pending Senate approval, to be the director of the Central Intelligence Agency. He is a strong supporter of Israel and was enthusiastic after meeting Israeli Prime Minister last November. Pompeo is an outspoken critic of outgoing President Barack Obama’s deal with Iran, and  called for it to be repealed in a Tweet last Thursday.
Pompeo threatens other aspects of the outgoing administration’s legacy. Pompeo was on the House Select Benghazi Committee to investigate the 2012 attack in Libya. He told the New York Times that he felt that the State Department was “seemingly more concerned with politics and Secretary Clinton’s legacy than with protecting its people in Benghazi”.

More controversial is Trumps choice of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn as his most senior national security aide. Flynn is also an opponent of the Iran deal and has called for it to be renegotiated. But in a more direct way, he signals an end to President Obama’s legacy.
Flynn was  appointed By President Obama as director of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2012, but was  pressured into resigning after for questioning the Obama administration’s public narrative that Al Qaeda was close to defeat. 
Flynn also disagreed with the outgoing president’s positive opinion of Islam. At a Dallas event for Act for America in August, Flynn called Islam a “cancer” and a “political ideology” that “definitely hides behind being a religion”.
In his book, “The Field of Fight: How We Can Win the Global War Against Radical Islam and its Allies,” he wrote, “This insistence on denying the existence of jihad led President Obama to the absurd claim that the Islamic State has nothing to do with Islam”.
This is reassuring, considering that some believe Trump has already begun to waver on some of his campaign commitments. In a recent BBC interview  Walid Phares, a senior policy aide to Trump, amended Trump’s promise to toss aside the P5+1 deal with Iran concerning their nuclear program.
“He will take the agreement, review it, send it to Congress, demand from the Iranians to restore a few issues or change a few issues, and there will be a discussion,” said Phares.

America’s Know-Nothing Diplomacy
By Daniel Pipes
Gary Johnson recently said, “The fact that somebody can dot the i’s and cross the t’s on a foreign leader or a geographic location then allows them to put our military in harm’s way.” In other words, “you can’t get into a war with a country you can’t find.”
As a student of U.S. foreign policy this struck a chord – not because it’s an outlandishly whacky statement but precisely because it is mainstream. Really. Here are three notable precedents from the last century:

In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson dispatched the International Commission of Inquiry (commonly known as the King-Crane Commission) to Palestine and Syria to ascertain the political wishes of their residents. The leaders of this potentially influential commission monumentally lacked qualifications for the undertaking. Henry C. King was a philosopher and president of Oberlin College; Charles R. Crane was a busybody, antisemite, and heir to the fortune from his family’s plumbing fixture company. Strikingly, their ignorance was seen as an advantage; a presidential aide explained that Wilson “felt these two men were particularly qualified to go to Syria because they knew nothing about it.”

Secretary of State Robert Lansing, who thought Wilson wrong on this, explained that the president did not want to appoint “persons who are familiar with the subject” of political and territorial questions. Instead, Wilson thought that “an empty mind is more receptive of the truth than one affected by experience and study.” Indeed, ignorance is an “essential qualification for an investigator.”

The King-Crane Commission report, not surprisingly, was (in the words of historian Elie Kedourie) “as ill-informed as its influence on policy was negligible.”

In 2003, the Bush administration announced John S. Wolf as the new U.S. presidential Middle East envoy (more formally, “chief, U.S. Coordinating and Monitoring Mission for the Middle East peace process”). The Washington Post (in an admiring article titled “For Mideast Envoy, Rookie Status May Be an Advantage”) quoted a senior administration official saying that “It’s a good thing that he has exceptional negotiating skills and very little direct experience in the area.”

Wolf himself admitted a complete lack of experience in the Middle East and later admitted his surprise at the appointment: “I asked Secretary [Colin] Powell, National Security Advisor [Condoleezza] Rice and President [George W.] Bush – why me?” Because they wanted “someone with a fresh view.” Wolf agreed on this approach, saying “My lack of experience was an advantage. I learned that in the Middle East, people always tend to look back, and I was asking them to look to the future.”

Not surprisingly, like the King-Crane Commission, Wolf’s diplomatic foray had negligible impact; a mere fourteen months into his mission, he wandered off to became the president of the Eisenhower Fellowships, a non-profit.

image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/445-BIN-Subscribe-MiddleEast-600WIDE.jpg

In 2006, the U.S. government’s Iraq Study Groupconsisted of ten members embodying the same “know-nothing” approach. James A. Baker, III, and Lee H. Hamilton served as co-chairs, with Robert Gates, Rudy Giuliani, Vernon E. Jordan, Jr., Sandra Day O’Connor, Leon E. Panetta, William J. Perry, Charles S. Robb, and Alan K. Simpson the members. Not a single one of these individuals brought expertise on Iraq to the table, virtually guaranteeing that the commission would produce a politically nuanced but strategically useless report.

Indeed, the Iraq Study Group Report turned out to be even worse than expected and had minimal influence. As I wrote at the time, it “dredges up past failed U.S. policies in the Middle East and would enshrine them as current policy. Most profoundly, regarding the American role in Iraq, the report moronically splits the difference of troops staying or leaving.”

Through a century, American presidents and other leaders celebrate Mark Twain’s “innocents abroad” mentality that Gary Johnson has just regurgitated. As someone who’s spent his near-50-year career working on this topic, the notion that ignorance makes for better diplomacy is pretty depressing; what have I been doing and for what purpose all this time?

That said, given the abominable state of Middle East studies and the wretched record of Foreign Service Officers like the Arabists, I must admit that avoiding specialists may have some merit. But surely that does not mean turning to ignorami.

Trump Reportedly Donated to Jews Expelled From Gaza Strip
 By JNS November 17, 2016 , 8:30 am
“Thus saith Hashem: For three transgressions of Azzah yea for four I will not reverse it: because they carried away captive a whole captivity to deliver them up to Edom.” Amos 1:6 (The Israel Bible™)

image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/gaza-trump.jpg
The evacuation of the former Gaza Jewish community of Morag in 2005 (IDF). Inset: Donald Trump
President-elect Donald Trump reportedly contributed money to help create new communities in Israel for evacuees of former Israeli settlements in the Sinai Peninsula and the Gaza Strip.

Due to the high cost of evacuating the former Gush Katif community in Gaza, the Israeli government reportedly sought assistance from Jewish organizations such as the Jewish National Fund (JNF) and other groups. In 2005, Israel unilaterally withdrew from Gaza, which is now ruled by the Palestinian terror group Hamas.

“We issued an appeal to all Keren Kayemeth leIsrael (KKL) and JNF offices worldwide,” said Effie Stenzler, former chairman of the JNF, Yedioth Ahronoth reported Tuesday.

“KKL-USA sought donations in the U.S. and one of them was sought from Trump, who is considered to be an avowed supporter of Israel, and he donated money toward the establishment of infrastructure in new communities,” Stenzler added.

Further, Trump donated towards helping Jewish evacuees from the Sinai Peninsula in the early 1980s, when Israel pulled out of the region as a result of the peace treaty it signed with Egypt in 1979.

According to Yedioth Ahronoth, Trump’s name appears on a plaque honoring the donors in the Hevel Shalom region, which absorbed evacuees from the Sinai and Gaza. While the exact figure of Trump’s donation for settlement evacuees is not cited, it is estimated to amount to millions of Israeli shekels.

Menorah and Oil Stand Ready for Third Temple as Hanukkah Approaches
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz November 17, 2016 , 12:30 pm
“And thou shalt make a candlestick of pure gold: of beaten work shall the candlestick be made, even its base, and its shaft; its cups, its knops, and its flowers, shall be of one piece with it.” Exodus 25:31 (The Israel Bible™)

A ritually pure oil has been carefully prepared by the nascent Sanhedrin so that the people of Israel will be ready to light the menorah should the Third Temple arrive by Hanukkah, which this year begins on December 24.
“The oil is ready, so if the government decided to permit it, we are ready to go up to the Temple Mount and light the menorah,” affirmed Rabbi Yaakov Savir, appointed by the Sanhedrin to oversee the complex oil-making process.
He explained that lighting the menorah is actually considered a ritual offering to God: “The oil is burned just like an animal sacrifice and is considered one of the daily Temple offerings.”

Trump’s Jewish Son-in-Law May Snag Top White House Post
“Now Moshe was keeping the flock of Yitro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian; and he led the flock to the farthest end of the wilderness, and came to the mountain of God, unto Horeb.” (Exodus 3:1)

Donald Trump and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner. (YouTube Screenshot)
Jared Kushner, the Jewish son-in-law of President-elect Donald Trump, may play a very key role in the Trump administration, the Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday.

Trump and Kushner, who is the husband of Trump’s daughter Ivanka and the father of the president-elect’s three Jewish grandchildren, enjoy a close personal and professional relationship; despite his own work as a real estate developer and publisher, Kushner campaigned with Trump and frequently acted as advisor to him on the trail. He was reported to be involved in nearly every aspect of his father-in-law’s campaign.
According to WSJ, Trump’s newly-appointed chief of staff, Reince Priebus, and senior counselor, Stephen Bannon, are encouraging Kushner to become a formal adviser or “special counselor” to his father-in-law once he takes office.
image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/461-BIN-SubscribeUSIsraelRelations-600WIDE.jpg
Anti-nepotism laws prevent presidents from appointing family members to any official positions within their administrations, so Kushner’s potential post is unclear but likely to take the form of an unpaid advisor role.
Should he choose to accept a position in the White House under Trump, Kushner would have to give up control of his considerable real estate empire, ceding it to a blind trust in which he would have no hand. He would not be able to receive any income from his real estate or media assets.
He would also be unavailable to Trump on Friday evenings and Saturdays, the Jewish Sabbath, which he observes strictly. He and Ivanka, who underwent a rigorous conversion process before marrying, consider themselves Orthodox and are raising their three young children in the Jewish faith

Was Trump Victory Aided By Three-Day Fast of Major Kabbalist Rabbi?
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz November 15, 2016 , 2:47 pm

A noted kabbalist greeted the news of Donald Trump’s upset victory in the elections with an enthusiastic blessing, saying his own spiritual efforts, which included fasting and prayer, contributed to the election results.
Rabbi Dov Kook, a respected rabbi from Tiberias learned in Jewish mysticism, announced on Friday that he had fasted for three consecutive days and nights previous to the election while immersing himself in prayer for the success of Donald Trump, whom many in Israel believe will be a better friend than his predecessor, President Barack Obama.

Palestinians: US Embassy Move to Jerusalem Would Be “Attack on Us”

The Palestinians promised to “make life miserable” for President-elect Donald Trump if he decides to follow through on a campaign promise to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
“If people attack us by moving the embassy to Jerusalem…it is a violation of Resolution 181 of the U.N. General Assembly that was drafted by the U.S.…it means they are showing belligerency towards us…If they do that nobody should blame us for unleashing all of the weapons that we have in the U.N. to defend ourselves, and we have a lot of weapons in the U.N.,” Riyad Mansour, the Palestinian representative to the United Nations, said Nov. 11.
While Mansour acknowledged that his response could not be a Security Council resolution because the U.S. would veto that move, he suggested there could be other ways the Palestinians could undermine American efforts in the world body.

Spike in Hate Crimes Since Trump Win is Real, Warns Advocacy Group

Despite skeptics asserting that most incidents of assault, vandalism, or harassment publicized since Donald Trump won the presidential election are unverified and over-reported, the US has indeed seen a spike in hate crimes in the past week, said the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
Over 300 incidents have been reported since Election Day, said SPLC President Richard Cohen on Monday.

The high cost of flying Lockheed Martin’s F-35 determines that at least 50 percent of the training on the stealth fighter be done in simulators, and Elbit Systems Ltd. has just won the tender to operate the F-35 new training center, to be built in the Nevatim airbase in the Negev desert, Globes reported Sunday. Construction of the new center will be completed in the coming year, in time for the arrival of the 33 F-35 Adir aircraft purchased by Israel.
Lockheed Martin said in a statement that over the past three decades, Elbit “has acquired a great deal of experience in trainers and simulators, and is a world leader in high-tech display. Its advanced systems are in operational use by leading armies around the world.”

Shaq Dances the Hora to Cries of “Messiah!”
“But let the righteous be glad, let them exult before God; yea, let them rejoice with gladness.”
(Psalms 68:4)
What does Shaquille O’Neal have to do with the coming of Messiah? Maybe more than you’d think.
The 7’1”, 350-lb basketball star attended a Jewish wedding in Miami last weekend, where he joined in a traditional “hora” circle dance and, grinning from ear to ear, boogied to the sounds of a Hebrew song which cried out for the time of Moshiach (Messiah in Hebrew).
Shaquille O’Neal Dances the Hora
“Moshiach! Moshiach! Moshiach!” sang the band leader. “He should come, he should come, he should come! Moshiach, he should come!”
O’Neal towered over a crowd of mostly normal-sized guests, but seemed thrilled to be a part of the celebration. The bride and groom looked on, beaming.

Trump Team Warns Obama Against Last-Minute ‘UN Surprise’ on Israel
By Abra Forman November 16, 2016 , 2:30 pm
“Wait for Hashem, and keep His way, and He will exalt thee to inherit the land; when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.” Psalms 37:34 (The Israel Bible™)
image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/obama-trump.png

Saying that pushing agendas “contrary to the president-elect’s position” would not be in the “spirit of the transition”, Trump national security advisor for Donald Trump last week warned the Obama administration against making moves on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in his last months in office.
“On big, transformative issues where President Obama and President-elect Trump are not in alignment, I don’t think it’s in keeping with the spirit of the transition…to try to push through agenda items that are contrary to the president-elect’s positions,” the advisor told Politico.
Trump’s vision for Israel is extremely different from that of Obama, whose relationship with the Jewish state has been strained, to say the least. Trump campaigned on a strong pro-Israel platform, promising to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and hinting that he would lift restrictions on building in settlements, whereas the State Department under Obama has repeatedly and strongly condemned even small-scale Israeli construction in Judea and Samaria.
The Obama Administration’s attempts at making peace failed twice during its eight-year span.

Jewish Fertility Rates Catch Up to Arabs for First Time Ever
By JNI Media November 16, 2016 , 8:30 am
“And that ye may prolong your days upon the land, which Hashem swore unto your fathers to give unto them and to their seed, a land flowing with milk and honey.” Deuteronomy 11:9 (The Israel Bible™)
image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/babies.jpg
Babies room at the Bikur Holim hospital in Jerusalem. November 14, 2002. (Flash90)
An announcement by Israel’s Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) on the occasion of the International Child Day 2016 states that, for the first time since the creation of the state in 1948, Israeli Jewish women’s overall fertility rate has matched that of Israeli Arab women: 3.13 children per woman on average. This means that the Jewish demographic trend is on the upswing, while the Arab numbers are slowing down.
The announcement shared a fascinating list of facts and figures on the heartwarming topic of Israeli children. Such as that by the end of 2015 there were 2.798 million children ages 0 to 17 living in Israel, constituting 33 percent of the population. In Jerusalem children are 40 percent of the general population, in Haifa 23 percent and in Tel Aviv only 21 percent.
image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/18-HebrewNameCertificate-Chana-600WIDE.jpg
Out of Israel’s children, 1.996 million are Jews (71.3 percent), 718,000 are Arab (25.7 percent) and the rest, 84,000 children (3 percent), are neither.
By the end of 2015, the average number of children under age 17 per household was 2.4. The largest number of children per household was in Beit Shemesh — 3.8, B’nei B’rak — 3.4, and Jerusalem — 3. The lowest number of children per household was in Bat Yam — 1.8.
Here’s another heartwarming bit of data: a whopping 92 percent of Israeli children live with both parents; only 8 percent— 210,000 children — live with one parent, 92 percent of them with their mother.

Rare “Supermoon”,
First of Century, Marks Closest Approach to Earth in 68 Years
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz November 14, 2016 , 12:30 pm
The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament showeth His handiwork.” Psalms 19:2 (The Israel Bible™)
A "supermoon" occurs when a full moon coincides with the moon's closest approach to Earth. (Shutterstock)
In a rare phenomenon known as a supermoon, on Monday night the moon will appear 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than usual. A supermoon, known in astronomy as perigean full moons, is the coincidence of a full moon with the closest approach the moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit.
The last time a supermoon appeared in the sky so close to the earth, it was accompanied by a miraculous event: the creation of the State of Israel. Its once-in-a-lifetime reappearance tonight has many speculating whether it brings with it another prophetic event.
NASA reported that tonight’s supermoon, passing within 221,524 miles from Earth, will be “the closest full moon to date in the 21st century.” The last time a supermoon appeared this close to the earth was 68 years ago, on May 14, 1948, and the next time a supermoon will occur is not until November 25, 2034.

Trump’s Bannon Appointment
“Signals White Supremacists Represented in White House”
“O ye that love Hashem, hate evil; He preserveth the souls of His saints; He delivered them out of the hand of the wicked.” (Psalms 97:10)
President-elect Donald Trump has announced that controversial alt-right leader Steve Bannon will be his Chief Strategist in the White House, sparking a backlash from critics who point to Bannon’s white nationalist and anti-Semitic views as a sign that the Trump administration will turn its often-vitriolic campaign rhetoric into policy.
“President-elect Trump’s choice of Steve Bannon as his top aide signals that White Supremacists will be represented at the highest levels in Trump’s White House,” said the spokesman for Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid on Sunday.
Bannon left his position at the super-conservative outlet Breitbart News to join the Trump campaign in August. Known as a leader of the emerging alt-right movement – a group of extreme right-wingers associated with white supremacism, anti-Semitism, and nativism – Bannon represents a dangerous ideology, said many of those who spoke out against the appointment.

BIN EXCLUSIVE: Meet Mike Pence’s Orthodox, Jewish, Israeli Cousins
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz November 14, 2016 , 1:30 pm
“I will gather all nations and will bring them down into the valley of Yehoshaphat; and I will enter into judgment with them there for My people and for My heritage Yisrael whom they have scattered among the nations and divided My land.” Joel 4:2 (The Israel Bible™)

Mike Pence. (Gino Santa Maria / Shutterstock.com)
Michael Pence, the Vice President-elect, is a long-time ardent supporter of Israel, but it turns out that his connection to the Holy Land goes deeper than even he knows: the Evangelical Christian from Indiana has Orthodox Jewish relatives, one of whom lives in the Golan Heights and is eager to meet his cousin.
The genealogical connection centers around Tamsen (Tammy) Socher, a Jewish grandmother living in West Los Angeles. She spent most of her life in the San Fernando Valley, but when she moved to Ohio, eight years ago, she felt a need to maintain a connection to her family and became interested in genealogy. Her search quickly led her to a relative, Richard Pence, an amateur genealogist. She was impressed by his work.

“Some people just want to fill in the blanks, but Richard really worked hard at getting it right,” Tammy said in an interview with Breaking Israel News. Tammy realized that Pence was not a common name. “It doesn’t really come from England. It was one of those made-up Ellis Island names, so we are all connected. I haven’t met a ‘Pence’ yet who wasn’t a relative.”
Most of her family was from Indiana, so Tammy asked Richard if Michael Pence, then an Indiana congressman, was a relative. Richard, who is now deceased, answered that the Michael Pence was indeed her fourth cousin on her father’s side. Tammy tried to contact Pence at the time but was unsuccessful.

What the First Seven Hebrew Words of the Bible Reveal About Creation
By Tsivya Fox November 14, 2016 , 10:30 am
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1 (The Israel Bible™)
image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/earth-creation.jpg
In honor of Simchat Torah, the holiday on which Jews celebrate the yearly completion of reading the entire Bible and begin the cycle again, scholars and laymen alike ask the question, “Why does the Torah begin with, ‘In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth’ (Genesis 1:1) rather than starting with the first Biblical commandment, which arrives much later, the blessing of the new moon?”
“There are many rabbinical discourses on this topic,” stated Roni Segal, academic adviser for eTeacher, an online language academy specializing in Biblical Hebrew, to Breaking Israel News. “Some of these  interesting insights are gleaned only by understanding Hebrew.”
The first sentence of the Bible reads in Hebrew:
בְּרֵאשִׁית בָּרָא אֱלֹהִים אֵת הַשָּׁמַיִם וְאֵת הָאָרֶץ
B’raysheet ba-RA Eh-lo-HEEM ayt ha-sha-MA-yim v’-ayt ha-A-retz
Ayt is made up of the first and last letters of the Hebrew alphabet, aleph/tav. In fact, the Hebrew alphabet is referred to as aleph/tav. Therefore, the literal translation of the first sentence in the Bible can be understood as, “In the beginning, God created the Hebrew alphabet and then He created the heavens and the earth.” From this, the sages understood that the the Hebrew alphabet was used as building blocks to create the heavens and the earth.

Trump Camp Quietly Walks Back Promises to Move Embassy to Jerusalem, Dismantle Iran Deal
By Abra Forman November 13, 2016 , 11:30 am
“When a man voweth a vow unto Hashem, or sweareth an oath to bind his soul with a bond, he shall not break his word; he shall do according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth.” Numbers 30:3 (The Israel Bible™)

A top foreign policy adviser to President-elect Donald Trump indicated Thursday that some of the hard-line promises the controversial candidate made during his presidential campaign would be re-tooled and softened in the implementation stage, including his pledges to to immediately move America’s Israeli embassy to Jerusalem and to dismantle the Iranian nuclear deal.
Trump had vowed that if he were elected, he would “100 percent” move the embassy from Tel Aviv, a highly political move which would essentially translate to US recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel – something it has, until now, refused to do, ostensibly for fear of angering Palestinians who claim the city as their own.

Trump stuck close to his pledge throughout his campaign, most recently repeating it after two contentious UNESCO resolutions attempted to deny all Jewish connection to Jerusalem and the Temple Mount last month.
“I have said on numerous occasions that in a Trump Administration, the United States will recognize Jerusalem as the one true capital of Israel,” Trump wrote in a Facebook post.

Giuliani Latest Pro-Israel Contender for Secretary of State
By JNS November 13, 2016 , 12:30 pm
“Let Hashem, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a man over the congregation.” Numbers 27:16 (The Israel Bible™)
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is a candidate for the position of secretary of state in President-elect Donald Trump’s administration, CNN reported Friday.
Giuliani, 72, was an early and vocal backer of Trump’s presidential campaign. He served as mayor of New York from 1993-2001, and ran unsuccessfully for the Republican presidential nomination in 2008.

An outspoken supporter of Israel, Giuliani is fondly remembered in the Jewish community for expelling Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) chief Yasser Arafat from a United Nations concert at Lincoln Center in 1995. Giuliani said he took that step because Arafat was responsible for the murders of “dozens of American citizens abroad,” such as Leon Klinghoffer—the elderly, wheelchair-bound New Yorker who was murdered and thrown overboard by the Palestinian hijackers of the Achille Lauro cruise ship in 1985.
Giuliani becomes the latest pro-Israel contender for Trump’s secretary of state post, according to media reports, with the other rumored candidates including former U.S. ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), and Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.).

Trump Eager to Make “Ultimate Deal” Between Israelis, Palestinians
By JNI Media November 13, 2016 , 8:30 am
“Trust in Hashem with all thy heart, and lean not upon thine own understanding.” Proverbs 3:5 (The Israel Bible™)

President Elect Donald J. Trump, possibly the most unpredictable man in American political history, has reiterated his promise to employ his “Art of the Deal” in achieving lasting peace between Jews and Arabs in the Middle East. In an interview to the Wall Street Journal Friday, in which he also said he would leave in place parts of Obamacare, and said he got a “beautiful” letter from Russian President Vladimir Putin upon his victory,  Trump repeated his promise “to help craft a resolution” for the Israel-Palestine situation, which he called “the war that never ends.”
Back in March 2016, candidate Trump told the NY Times regarding the two-state solution, “I would love to see if a deal could be made. If a deal could be made. Now, I’m not sure it can be made, there’s such unbelievable hatred, there’s such, it’s ingrained, it’s in the blood, the hatred and the distrust, and the horror. But I would love to see if a real deal could be made. Not a deal that you know, lasts for three months, and then everybody starts shooting again. And a big part of that deal, you know, has to be to end terror, we have to end terror.”
Trump then said, “Basically I support a two-state solution on Israel,” with the proviso that “the Palestinian Authority has to recognize Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state. Have to do that. And they have to stop the terror, stop the attacks, stop the teaching of hatred, you know?”

UN Condemns Israel for Shooting Armed Terrorists
“He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the righteous, even they both are an abomination to Hashem.” (Proverbs 17:15)
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz November 11, 2016 , 12:43 pm

Michael Lynk, the United Nations (UN) Special Rapporteur for Human Rights in Israel, condemned Israel in the press on Thursday for using lethal force when dealing with “alleged Palestinian assailants”.

Lynk told the Agence France-Presse (AFP), the world’s third largest  international news agency headquartered in Paris, “Lethal force is supposed to be used as a last resort and only when there is a legitimate threat to a security officer’s life”.

Since the recent wave of terror began just over a year ago, approximately 250 Palestinians have been killed while carrying out terror attacks. 36 Israelis have been killed by Palestinians in what is being called the third Intifada, which means ‘terror’ in Arabic.

Lynk brought as an example the case of AvrahamSchlissel, an ultra-Orthodox Israeli who went on a stabbing spree during the Jerusalem gay pride parade in 2005.

“He was actually brought down and wasn’t actually physically harmed in any way,” Lynk said, adding, “If that kind of force can be used to neutralize an attacker with a knife, why can’t that be used with most of the alleged Palestinian assailants in similar circumstances?”

The job of the Special Rapporteur , which Lynk took over in March, is more limited in scope then the name implies. According to the mandate that created the position, the Rapporteur is responsible for reporting alleged human rights violation by Israel but is forbidden from reporting abuses perpetrated by any other government, including the Palestinian Authority. To further complicate matters, due to the blatantly biased nature of the office, Israel refuses to grant visas to those taking over the position.

When asked if he would consider expanding his duties to include reporting human rights violations perpetrated by Palestinian, Lynk said was non-committal, saying, “It is something I am open to and am considering.”

Lynk went on to blame “alleged” Palestinian attacks on Israeli economic oppression.

“When you look at the larger picture, with no hope on the horizon for a peace process, with deteriorating economic circumstances, it becomes clear that there is a nexus, a relationship, or a connection between these kinds of attacks — deplorable as they may be — and the much larger economic, social and political circumstances,” Lynk said.’

This is consistent with a claim he made this week at an event at Columbia University. When asked if he was concerned by human rights violations perpetrated by Hamas against the Palestinians in Gaza, he again, blamed Israel, saying, ““Hamas was only an answer, although a radical one, to the belligerent occupation.”

Lynk’s appointment was a result of pressure from the Arab nations at the UN. Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, a watchdog organization in Geneva, criticized the decision, noting that Lynk refers to Israel as an apartheid state and openly calls for dismantling the Jewish State.

“The UN’s selection of a manifestly partisan candidate — someone who three days after 9/11 blamed the West for provoking the attacks on the World Trade Center — constitutes a travesty of justice and a breach of the world body’s own rules,” Neuer said in his statement.
