Jordan shocks Jerusalem, downgrades peace treaty with Israel

Jordan’s decision to downgrade its peace treaty with Israel came as a complete surprise to Jerusalem, as it means the handing over of territories to the Jordanians. 
By Jack Gold, World Israel News
Jordan announced Sunday its withdrawal from part of the 1994 peace agreement with Israel, saying the agricultural areas of Naharayim and Zofar in the Jordan Valley, cultivated by Israeli farmers over the past 25 years, will be reclaimed by the kingdom.
Jerusalem was reportedly shocked by the announcement, as it essentially constitutes a downgrade of the peace treaty between the two countries.
In fact, Naharayim – Hebrew for two rivers, as it is located between the Yarmuk and Jordan Rivers – was opened this year to Israeli visitors under the name “Island of Peace.”

Israel fears the U.S. will recognize Jerusalem as a joint Israel-Palestinian capital in an attempt to jumpstart the diplomatic process. 
By Jack Gold, World Israel News
Israel fears that U.S. President Donald Trump’s peace plan will include a declaration that Jerusalem is the capital of two states – Israel and Palestine – as a concession to the Palestinians in order to get them back to the negotiation table, Ynet reported Sunday.
The Palestinian Authority has rejected the Americans as mediators in the Mideast peace process since December, when Trump announced official U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
If the Republicans are weakened in the midterm elections next month, the report notes, the White house might ramp up pressure for a deal in the hopes of having an achievement to show voters ahead of the 2020 presidential elections.

Prime Minister Netanyahu postponed a scheduled demolition of an illegal Bedouin outpost.
By David Isaac, World Israel News
On Sunday afternoon, Israel’s Security Cabinet reaffirmed its commitment to evacuate the illegal Bedouin outpost of Khan al-Ahmar. However, it granted an extension of several weeks in order to exhaust negotiations for evacuation.
On Saturday evening, Prime Minister Netanyahu sparked a firestorm of anger from Israel’s right when he announced the delay of the illegal outpost’s destruction.
It appeared Netanyahu caved to pressure from the International Criminal Court at The Hague. Last Wednesday, the chief prosecutor of the ICC, Fatou Bensouda, warned Israel that the demolition of the outpost could constitute a war crime.

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman announced Sunday morning that he will reopen the Kerem Shalom and Erez border crossings.
By David Isaac, World Israel News
Israeli Minister of Defense Avigdor Liberman announced Sunday morning that he will reopen the Kerem Shalom and Erez border crossings, allowing supplies to enter the Gaza Strip.
Liberman’s decision came after Palestinian organizers of the ongoing mass riots on the Gaza-Israel border ordered their people to keep their distance from the border fence and to protest in a non-violent manner.
“The March of Return is continuing until its goals are attained, with an emphasis on the importance of holding marches that will be non-violent and led by the people,” one of the organizers, Khaled al-Batsh, a top leader in the Palestinian Islamic Jihad,  said in a statement late last week.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley had the audience laughing when she joked about both Jews and Iran at an event on Thursday night in New York City.
During her keynote speech at the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner in midtown Manhattan, Haley said, “I’m proud to be very close to the Jewish community. In fact, they gave me a nickname. Does anybody know what shiksa [Yiddish for non-Jewish woman] means?”
Haley later poked fun at the lack of free press in Iran saying, “They still think John Kerry is secretary of state.”

Israeli Border Police on Saturday detained a Palestinian who later confessed to planning a terror attack near Jerusalem.
By TPS and World Israel News
A 20-year-old Palestinian man was arrested by Border Police in the community of Har Adar some 15 kilometers west of Jerusalem Saturday morning.
A knife was found near the spot where the man was arrested. He later told security forces that he had planned to carry out a stabbing attack.
In September 2017, two security guards and a Border Police officer were killed in a shooting attack on a checkpoint at the entrance to Har Adar.
The incident on Saturday follows on the heels of a number of fatal Palestinian stabbing attacks in Israeli communities, including the recent murder of activist Ari Fuld. Just a few months earlier, in July 2018, a Palestinian terrorist stabbed to death 31-year-old Israeli father of two, Yotam Ovadia, in the Adam community in Samaria’s Binyamin region. Two other victims were wounded in that attack, which was ultimately halted by one of the victims, 41-year-old Asaf Ravid, who shot the terrorist twice.

Radical Muslim cleric Anjem Choudary, said to have inspired dozens of terrorists, will appeal restrictions imposed after his release as a violation of his human rights.
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Anjem Choudary, who was sentenced to 5.5 years in prison after swearing an oath of allegiance to ISIS, is going to appeal the 25 conditions set by the British authorities upon his release.
The hate cleric, who served just half of his sentence, has been “credited” with inspiring over 100 British citizens to join the extremist Muslim terror group and carry out attacks through his Islam4UK, or al-Muhajiroun, organization.
Two of his followers were convicted of murdering Lee Rigby, an off-duty soldier whom they hacked to death in southeast London in 2013. Others have been spotted in Syria brandishing weapons
His restrictions include a ban on preaching, accessing a computer, speaking to the media, and unsupervised contact with children. Choudary is under strict travel limitations and must hand over his mobile phone upon request. He will be electronically tagged as well.
An unnamed local told the Daily Mail, “It is sickening knowing he is so close. They should find another place for him away from the community. Everyone has heard of him. If he hates this country so much he should be deported.”
Others expressed anger over the bill taxpayers will pay for the security surrounding the 51-year-old parolee, which includes round-the-clock surveillance teams: Over £2million a year – compared to the £50,000 to keep him in jail.

The Islamic University in Gaza that receives European funds recently held a large event that openly embraced anti-Semitism and Jihad terrorism against the Jewish state.
By Daniel Krygier, World Israel News
The Islamic University in Gaza recently hosted the event “Resist with your knowledge and the knife.” It openly encouraged students to embrace lethal Jew-hatred and jihadi terrorism against Israel.
Despite its violent and openly racist agenda, the Islamic University in Gaza enjoys cooperation with and receives funds from several European universities. One of its European partners is the prestigious KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden’s equivalent of America’s MIT or Israel’s Technion.
Hate-Up Nation
Few things happen in Gaza without the blessing of the terror organization Hamas. It should therefore not come as a surprise that Hamas was involved in the recent jihadi event at the Islamic University in Gaza. While Israel has emerged as a leading Start-Up nation of innovation, Hamas has used international aid to turn Gaza into a leading laboratory of lethal hatred and destruction.
Islamist events that openly call for murdering Jews contradict Europe’s official embrace of tolerance and diversity. They constitute a flagrant violation of international law and contradict fundamental values that Europe claims to adhere to. However, this has not prevented Western organizations including European academia from funding violent supremacist jihadi events like the one recently hosted by Gaza’s Islamic University.

Palestinian strongman Mohammed Dahlan reportedly hired Abraham Golan to create a team of mercenaries for targeted assassinations in Yemen.
By JNS.org
Some stories are just too hard to believe. But it seems one such story – of a Jewish businessman and an American former commando-turned-mercenary who were hired by a former Palestinian security chief to establish a hit squad for the United Arab Emirates to assassinate political targets in Yemen – actually happened.
The story, published by BuzzFeed, begins with a meeting between former Palestinian Authority strongman Mohammed Dahlan and Abraham Golan, who was described in the story as “a charismatic Hungarian Israeli security contractor who lives outside of Pittsburgh.”
Dahlan and Golan met at an Italian restaurant on a military base in the United Arab Emirates. There, the two agree to create a team of mercenaries to assassinate individuals in Yemen.
Golan, a Hungarian-born Jew who served in the French Foreign Legion and lived for a time in Israel, admits to helping form the hit squad, but he does not detail the operations in which he was involved.

Anti-Israel activist Lara Alqasem will not be deported to the U.S. based on a ruling Thursday by Israel’s Supreme Court.
By David Isaac, World Israel News
The Supreme Court decided Thursday that Lara Alqasem, a student facing deportation for BDS activism, can remain in Israel, where she is registered to study at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
The decision arrived after Lara Alqasem faced tough questioning from Israeli Supreme Court justices on Wednesday.
The 22-year-old Arab-American graduate student had been ordered out of the country by the Israeli government due to her involvement with Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), which supports the Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions (BDS) movement.
On Sunday, the Supreme Court agreed to halt Alqasem’s deportation in order to review her case.
Alqasem admits she served as president of the University of Florida’s chapter of SJP. SJP members have often engaged an anti-Israel and anti-Semitic rhetoric online. Alqasem purged her social media accounts before coming to Israel.

“You don’t have to go on the ground in Gaza, but you need to have [Hamas] leaders afraid to walk down the street,” said the head of the Eshkol Regional Council head following a rocket attack on Beersheba.
By World Israel News and TPS
Eshkol Regional Council head Gadi Yarkoni expressed disappointment Thursday at the lack of significant military response to the rocket fire from Gaza that hit Beersheba just before 4 a.m. the previous day.
The rocket destroyed a family home with four people inside, who narrowly escaped death. The mother saved herself and her three children by fleeing to a fortified room at the sound of the red-alert siren. Shortly after, a 20-kilogram explosive payload hit the house.
“We should have taken advantage of the Beersheba incident to restore deterrence. Unfortunately, this didn’t happen,” Yarkoni told Israel’s Channel 10 news.
“You don’t have to go on the ground in Gaza, but you need to have their leaders afraid to walk down the street,” Yarkoni declared.
Following a five-hour-long emergency security cabinet meeting at the Prime Minister’s Residence in Jerusalem Wednesday night, the Israel Defense Forces lifted all restrictions across the Gaza border communities, which were implemented following the Beersheba incident.

By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley talked about some of the behind-the-scenes dealings with her boss President Donald Trump as well as foreign envoys in a closed-door meeting of the politically conservative Council for National Policy, Harper’s Magazine reported.
The diplomat revealed details about confrontations she had with some of America’s most notorious adversaries, including North Korea.
To pass sanctions in the U.N. Security Council against that Communist state, Haley resorted to the “madman theory,” a political theory from the Nixon administration used to make leaders of hostile nations think the U.S. leader was irrational and volatile.
“My boss is kind of unpredictable, and I don’t know what he’ll do.” That’s what she said to her Chinese counterpart, Haley told the group.

The Jewish Electoral Institute, a new group founded by Jewish Democrats, published a poll Wednesday, ahead of the midterm elections, showing American Jews strongly favor the Democrats and dislike Trump, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA) reported.
The poll, carried out by The Mellman Group, shows US Jews favoring the Democrats 74-26.
Despite their distaste for the president, the respondents are evenly divided with regard to his policies on Israel, with 51 percent approving and 49 percent not approving, within the margin of error of 3.5 percentage points, according to the JTA report.

“Congressman O’Rourke is fond of saying he doesn’t take PAC money, but the truth is different,” Cruz said Tuesday after O’Rourke accused him of accepting funds from political action committees, JTA reported. “For example, the J Street PAC, which is a rabidly anti-Israel PAC, has raised over $160,000 for Congressman O’Rourke because of his many votes against the nation of Israel.”

Responding to a media inquiry over his anti-Semitic tweet, Farrakhan said, “I’m not an anti-Semite. I’m anti-termite.” 
By The Algemeiner
Twitter announced on Wednesday that it would not be suspending Louis Farrakhan — the viciously antisemitic leader of the Nation of Islam — over a tweet in which he compared Jews to “termites.”
Responding to a media inquiry from BuzzFeed News, a spokesperson for the messaging site said that Farrakhan’s account would remain active despite a tweet on Tuesday in which the Nation of Islam chief stated, “I’m not an anti-Semite. I’m anti-termite.” The tweet linked to a speech delivered by Farrakhan last Sunday in Detroit in which he derided “members of the Jewish community who hate me” for contributing to his fame.
Farrakhan continued: “I can go anywhere in the world and they’ve heard of Farrakhan … I’m not mad at you, because you’re so stupid.” Later on, he declared of his Jewish adversaries, “when they talk about Farrakhan, call me a hater, call me anti-Semite. … I’m anti-Termite. I don’t know nothing about hating somebody because of their religious preference.”

The Sabah newspaper’s report showed the man also later outside the Saudi consul general’s home, checking out of a Turkish hotel as a large suitcase stood by his side, and leaving Turkey on Oct. 2.
The report came as Turkish crime-scene investigators finished an overnight search of both the consul general’s residence and a second search of the consulate itself amid Ankara’s claims that Saudi authorities had Khashoggi killed and dismembered inside the diplomatic mission in Istanbul.
Saudi Arabia, which initially called the allegations “baseless,” has not responded to repeated requests for comment from The Associated Press over recent days, including on Thursday.
The Sabah report showed the man walking past police barricades at the consulate at 9:55 a.m. with several men trailing behind him. Khashoggi arrived at the consulate several hours later at 1:14 p.m., then disappeared while his fiancée waited outside for him.

Israel’s SodaStream sucks up ocean plastic in Honduras cleanup

Israel’s SodaStream sucks up ocean plastic in Honduras cleanup(SodaStream)
“We can’t clean up all the plastic waste on the planet, but we each need to do whatever we can,” said SodaStream CEO Daniel Birnbaum.
By Joseph Wolkin, World Israel News
Israeli startup SodaStream is doing the unthinkable once again.
SodaStream CEO Daniel Birnbaum announced Monday that his company has launched a plastic cleanup operation off the coast of Roatán, Honduras. The area currently has a massive plastic garbage patch, and SodaStream is determined to help out.
“We can’t clean up all the plastic waste on the planet, but we each need to do whatever we can,” Birnbaum said in a statement.
SodaStream, which carbonates water to create seltzer and soda, is one of Israel’s most successful startups.
In this latest journey, the company will attempt to catch plastic debris thanks to the “Holy Turtle,” which it purchased from American firm ABBCO. This 300-meter, 1,000-foot long floating device is towed by a ship, and it allows sea creatures to escape through vent holes.
A 2017 BBC documentary inspired this voyage, the company said. That footage revealed outstanding underwater images of what was essentially a patch of floating trash right off Roatán’s coast.
SodaStream sent out the “Holy Turtle” on Monday, with 150 company executives from 45 nations on hand to witness this event. Local officials, school children and Plastic Soup Foundation officials also attended the kick-off to this effort.

David James Macon Jr., 27, was arrested Tuesday for allegedly stealing a Torah scroll from the Jewish Hospital in Louisville, Kentucky.
The hospital featured the scroll, worth about $30,000, on display. But on Sunday, it went missing.
Fortunately for the hospital, the theft was caught on surveillance cameras. The local CBS affiliate, WLKY, noted that during his arrest, Macon was wearing the same clothes as he was on the night of the theft when police arrested him on Tuesday.

Iran blasts new US sanctions: ‘Insult’ to world order(AP/Ebrahim Noroozi)

“U.S. addiction to sanctions is out of control,” Zarif  tweeted in response to Washington’s latest sanctions.
By Associated Press
Iran said Wednesday that the latest round of U.S. sanctions is an “insult” to the international order that stems from “blind hostility.”
On Tuesday the U.S. imposed sanctions on businesses allegedly linked to the Basij, a volunteer wing of the paramilitary Revolutionary Guard. The businesses include several banks as well as mining, industrial and trade companies.
The semi-official ISNA news agency on Wednesday quoted Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi as calling the new sanctions “cruel and unfair.”

By Jack Gold, World Israel News
Israeli security forces recently arrested two Israeli Arabs who tried to join the Islamic State (ISIS) and Jabhat al-Nusra terror organizations in Syria.
The two, Abdelmalek Asfour and Adam Abu Shehadeh of Jaffa, traveled to Turkey with the hopes of entering Syria and joining the terror groups, but returned to Israel when they lost contact with their Syrian point man.
An indictment filed Thursday against the two at the Tel Aviv Magistrate’s Court included charges of attempting to illegally leave Israel to join the Jihad battlefield in Syria.

Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi who disappeared after entering the Saudi embassy in Turkey is being hailed as an advocate for human rights and freedom of expression. But was he in fact an anti-Israel radical Islamist?
By Adina Katz, World Israel News
The world is up in arms about the disappearance of Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who entered his country’s consulate in Istanbul earlier this month to obtain papers for his upcoming marriage and has since not been seen.
But who is Jamal Khashoggi?
Business Insider reports that Khashoggi – a U.S. resident and contributor to The Washington Post  divided his time between London, Istanbul and Virginia – and “was at one point an adviser to senior officials in the Saudi government. He worked for top news outlets in his native country and was close to the ruling elite there.
But last year Khashoggi had a falling out with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. “Since that time, the reporter has been quite critical of the government and the prince,” Business Insider reports, adding that Khashoggi reportedly told colleagues that he feared for his life.

By World Israel News Staff
A terrorist was shot and killed after attempting a stabbing attack in Samaria on Monday afternoon.
An eyewitness said he fell upon Israeli army soldiers and tried to stab them at a bus stop. The soldiers fired on him and eliminated him.
Earlier Monday, Israeli Supreme Court Justice David Mintz narrowly escaped a carjacking by three Arabs armed with hammers at a junction on Route 463 in Samaria.
Last Thursday, two people were wounded in a stabbing attack in Samaria. The terrorist initially eluded capture but was later seized by Israeli forces.

Muslims demand Australia reconsider any steps towards recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and moving its embassy there.
By Jack Gold, World Israel News
The Palestinians and several Muslim countries expressed indignation after Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced he was considering recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and moving the country’s embassy to the city.
Morrison revealed the possibility in a telephone conversation with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday. “I’m very thankful to him for this. We will continue to strengthen ties between Israel and Australia,” Netanyahu tweeted that day.
Morrison, Australia’s new prime minister, said on Tuesday he was “open” to following the U.S., which 10 months ago announced it was moving its embassy to Jerusalem. The idea was proposed to him by Dave Sharma, a member of his party and former ambassador to Israel.
“When sensible suggestions are put forward that are consistent with your policy positioning and in this case pursuing a two-state solution, Australia should be open-minded to this and I am open-minded to this and our government is open-minded to this,” Morrison told reporters.
Australia’s standing at stake?
The Palestinian Foreign Ministry called on Morrison to reconsider his move, claiming it would be “in violation of international law and United Nations resolutions.”

“I’m shaped by a lot of battles from six years old up until now,” said Shatner, who faced a “great deal” of anti-Semitism growing up.
By Shiryn Solny
Jewish Canadian actor William Shatner opened up in a recent interview about being the target of anti-Semites during his childhood.
The 87-year-old, who is best known for his role as Captain James T. Kirk in Star Trek, told the Sydney Morning Herald that he experienced “a great deal” of anti-Semitism growing up in Montreal, a city that was mostly Catholic. Shatner said the discrimination that he faced for being Jewish was “very difficult” for him to deal with.
“I’m shaped by a lot of battles from six years old up until now,” he explained before revealing the kind of anti-Semitism he regularly faced. “Fights, every day, with one or more kids my size or bigger. Somebody recently showed me a high school graduation book. There I was — a nice-looking boy — and my nickname was ‘Toughie’ because I was always fighting and being attacked. Kids would all crowd around, yelling, ‘Fight! Fight! Fight!’”
During his time at McGill University in Montreal the anti-Semitism continued, he told the Herald. He said, “The university I went to had a quota. How I made it through the quota, I don’t know. There was a limit to the number of Jewish kids who could go to that university, no matter how qualified they were.”
The Emmy-winning actor also told the publication that while his parents had an “observant religious life” and went to synagogue every Shabbat, they “dragged” him along and he did not consider himself religious. He added, “I’m spiritual. I read avidly on philosophy and animals, plants and trees; how connected all of life is.”

Opinion: America wouldn’t let BDS activist in, so why should Israel?
 October 15, 2018
Opinion: America wouldn’t let BDS activist in, so why should Israel?BDS activist Lara Alqasem (AP/Sebastian Scheiner)
Alqasem is being denied entry not because of her opinions, but because of her actions. She actively promotes the cause of those who murder Israelis.
By Stephen M. Flatow
Some American pundits are slamming Israel for denying entry to Palestinian-American student Lara Alqasem. Perhaps they should take a look at America’s own laws concerning the admission of extremists before they throw mud at Israel.
In 2014, Ms. Alqasem became a member of the anti-Israel group Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) at her home campus, the University of Florida. She didn’t join as some passing lark; she was an activist who rose through the ranks, becoming vice president of the chapter, and then serving as president in 2016-17.
SJP is not a group that merely criticizes Israel. It supports Palestinian terrorists. In recent years, it has issued statements and held events praising and defending, among others, convicted Jerusalem supermarket bomber Rasmea Odeh; convicted Palestinian sniper and bomb-maker Samer Issawi; and Palestinian stabbers Fadi Aloon and Fadil Qawasmi.
With that kind of track record, if Alqasem was a non-American applying to enter the United States, she would not be admitted.
U.S. law specifies several categories of people who are denied admission, including those who “espouse” terrorism. Look at the section called “Inadmissible Aliens” in 8 U.S. Code 1182, (a)(3)(B)(i)(IV)(bb). It bars any “representative of … a political, social, or other group that endorses or espouses terrorist activity.”
That sounds to me like a pretty good description of Students for Justice in Palestine.
The grounds for exclusion don’t stop there. Consider (a)(3)(A)(iii)(VII). It denies admission even if the applicant doesn’t represent a pro-terrorist group—if she is just an individual who “endorses or espouses terrorist activity or persuades others to endorse or espouse terrorist activity or support a terrorist organization.”
That sounds to me like a pretty good description of Lara Alqasem.
And then there’s (a)(3)(A)(iii). An applicant is denied if he or she intends, even “incidentally,” to engage in “any activity” that has as one of its purposes “opposition … to the Government of the United States by force, violence, or other unlawful means.”

Justice minister: Knesset must have power to veto high court

By Jack Gold, World Israel News
Minister of Justice Ayelet Shaked said that her political party, Jewish Home, will require the next government to give the Knesset a veto over Israel’s Supreme Court as part of any coalition agreement, The Jerusalem Post reported.
Speaking at the Ma’ariv Conference in Jerusalem on Monday, she blamed left-wing members of the current coalition for blocking her bill to empower 62 members of the Knesset to override the High Court when it tries to strike a Knesset law as unconstitutional.
Shaked and her colleagues have been working on the so-called “Override Clause,” which would give the Knesset the power to reverse Supreme Court rulings with a simple majority of 62 votes. The legislation on the bill passed its first hurdle on June 3, when it made it out of committee and was sent to the Knesset plenum for approval. The Knesset vote has yet to be scheduled.

Israel confirmed on Sunday it would reopen the Quneitra crossing with Syria, facilitating entry and exit by U.N. observers four years after the crossing was closed because of brutal fighting in Syria’s bloody civil war.
Jordan and Syria also agreed Sunday to reopen a vital border crossing between the two countries, three years after the commercial lifeline fell to rebel groups and traffic was halted.
Israel’s military announced that the United Nations had decided to return its peacekeeping force, known as UNDOF, to the Quneitra crossing area, which will be used exclusively for U.N. forces, it added.
The Syrian government plans to escort media to the crossing Monday.

“I first worked with the BBC Philharmonic in March and knew straight away that they were a very special group of people and exceptional musicians,” said Wellber, who is succeeding Spanish maestro Juanjo Mena in this role.
“Having seen Omer conducting a number of orchestras over the last year I have been fortunate to have experienced his brilliance firsthand in a wide range of repertoire,” said BBC Philharmonic General Manager Simon Webb.
“His immediate connection with the BBC Philharmonic was evident in his first concert, and we are now delighted to have secured one of the most sought after young conductors of his generation.”

On Monday night, Israeli military and security services arrested 15 wanted terrorist suspects in a sweep in Judea and Samaria. Those apprehended were wanted for either terror activities or disruption of public order against civilians and Israeli security forces. The suspects were handed over to general security services for interrogation.
During the sweep, Israeli forces discovered at least one Carlo-style submachine gun.  This locally produced weapon was the same type used by the terrorist who shot and killed two Israelis at the Barkan Industrial Park on Oct. 7. The killer, Ashraf Walid Suleiman Na’alowa, is still at large.

U.S. Special Envoy Jason Greenblatt revealed that the administration’s peace plan calls for unification of Gaza and Judea and Samaria. 
By Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
The yet-to-be-revealed U.S. peace plan for Israel and the Palestinians includes the reunification of Hamas-controlled Gaza and the Palestinian Authority (PA), Trump envoy Jason Greenblatt told Israel’s Ynet news Tuesday.
Greenblatt is the Special Representative for International Negotiations to U.S. President Donald Trump. He has been working on the plan for the past 19 months together with senior administration officials. His remarks attempted to dispel Palestinian claims that the plan calls for leaving Gaza a separate entity.
“Let’s be clear. Gaza and Judea and Samaria were separated for 10 years not only physically, but also politically between the Palestinian Authority and Hamas, denying the reality would be absurd,” Greenblatt said. “Contrary to [Palestinian] claims, the U.S. plan is to unite them,” he said.
“Make no mistake, we are here to help all the Palestinians, both in Judea and Samaria and in Gaza, and the disinformation that is being disseminated by those who are not exposed to the plan and want to spoil it does not help ordinary Palestinians,” he underscored, criticizing the PLO for disparaging the plan before seeing it.

Israel Antiquity Authority inspectors and Border Police volunteers caught two thieves over the weekend causing extensive damage to the biblical town of Dovrat near Afula with a bulldozer.
The suspects, two brothers in their thirties, came from the nearby Arab village of Daburiyya.  They were arrested and then interrogated by the IAA before being released on bail on Monday. The Antiquity Authority confiscated the bulldozer and requested that it be forfeited as a result of their actions.
The pair, who were searching for antiquities to sell, uncovered and smashed subterranean cavities and uprooted masonry stones that were part of the remains of the 2,000-year-old settlement. The debris also included a fragment of basalt millstones, used for grinding flour, and potsherds from the Hellenistic period.

“What bothers you is not the loss of democracy, but the loss of the leftocracy,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in his speech opening the Israeli parliament’s winter session.
By Joseph Wolkin, World Israel News
The Knesset’s opening winter session kicked off with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blasting Israel’s left.
Netanyahu had a clear message for his political rivals in a speech that also outlined his government’s accomplishments over the past decade.
“What bothers you is not the loss of democracy, but the loss of the leftocracy,” Netanyahu said.
Meretz party chairwoman Tamar Zandberg and Joint List MK Ahmad Tibi were ejected from the hall for catcalling during the prime minister’s speech. Ultimately, seven MKs were removed from the room by Knesset speaker Yuli Edelstein.
“It’s your right to criticize, to propose changes or amendments; constructive criticism is crucial in democracy,” Netanyahu said.
This was the Knesset’s first meeting after passing July’s controversial nation-state bill. The law enshrines Israel as a Jewish state. It sparked a firestorm of criticism from Israel’s left and minority citizens like the Druze.
“Despite all the achievements, there is a small minority that, with pure brazenness says: You have stolen our state, you have taken our state away from us,” he said. “So I want to say to you and I want you to listen to me carefully — our state is not stolen. Our state is amazing. You should get used to it because this is the new Israel.”

By Associated Press and World Israel News Staff
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met Tuesday with Saudi King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Mohammed over the disappearance of Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi.
Prince Mohammed, whom Khashoggi wrote critically about in The Washington Post and whose rise to power saw the writer go into a self-imposed exile in the U.S. said during the meeting: “We are strong and old allies. We face our challenges together — the past, the day of, tomorrow.”
Pompeo arrived at a royal palace in Riyadh on Tuesday. The king greeted Pompeo by saying: “I hope you are comfortable here.”
Khashoggi disappeared two weeks ago at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul. Turkey fears Khashoggi was killed and dismembered at the consulate by a Saudi hit team. Saudi Arabia calls the allegation “baseless,” although reports say the kingdom may soon acknowledge the writer was indeed killed.

Israeli authorities foiled a plan to smuggle finches across the Allenby Bridge crossing. The black market in birds appears to be an ongoing problem. 
By David Isaac, World Israel News 
Israeli authorities foiled a plan to smuggle finches across the Allenby Bridge crossing between Jordan and Israel on Tuesday. A Palestinian tried to hide 40 of the birds in his socks. He was handed over to Israel’s Nature Authority who transferred him to the custody of the Israeli police.
“We view with great seriousness efforts to smuggle live animals of all kinds and are working around the clock to eradicate the phenomenon,” said Major Hadi Hativ, in charge of the Allenby Bridge crossing.
High demand has increased prices for the popular singing bird, with a single finch fetching 1,000s of shekels in Israel.
Bird black market
The black market in birds appears to be an ongoing problem. In Feb. 2017, in a virtually identical incident, a resident of Shechem attempted to smuggle 40 finches across the Allenby Bridge by hiding them under his pants. A young man and woman tried to get 38 finches across a month earlier.

Israel devises legal means to block Bedouin polygamy

Israel devises legal means to block Bedouin polygamyBedouin women (AP/Ariel Schalit)
On Tuesday, Cabinet members proposed an addition to a new law geared to reducing polygamy in the Bedouin sector. 
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked and Welfare Minister Haim Katz announced Tuesday a proposed addition to a law meant to punish those who defraud the National Insurance Institute (NII) by falsely claiming status as single-parent households.
The amendment is expressly aimed at stopping polygamous practices among Bedouin men, Ynet news reports.
Polygamy is rampant among the Bedouin sector in Israel, particularly in the southern Negev region. “Practically every third Bedouin man has at least two wives,” according to a 2012 Tel Aviv University study. It is the reason Bedouin have the fastest population growth rate in the world.
Bedouin men will divorce their wives in order to transfer the onus of supporting them to the state. In Israel, single mothers and their children are entitled to financial support amounting to 1,000s of shekels. The result is that Israel ends up effectively subsidizing Bedouin polygamy, despite the fact that polygamy has been illegal in Israel since 1977.
The new proposal by Shaked and Katz gives the NII the ability to offset the amount of money a fictitiously divorced woman with a family receives from the state agency by confiscating an equal amount from the husband’s account – without needing to go to court first.

By Jack Gold, World Israel News
Marilyn Monroe’s personal siddur, or Jewish prayer book, will be auctioned off next month.
American icon Monroe converted to Judaism in 1956, prior to her marriage to Jewish playwright Arthur Miller. Miller’s rabbi, Robert Goldberg, presided over her conversion and their marriage.
Even after their divorce in 1961, Monroe said she remained committed to her adopted religion.
Printed in Vienna and published by H. Wagner in 1922, the siddur is titled “The Form of Daily Prayers. According to the Custom of the German and Polish Jews.”
The siddur contains notations in pencil, apparently in Monroe’s hand. The spine is nearly detached indicating that it may have been used extensively.
The item is estimated to be worth between $5,000 and $8,000, and will be auctioned off by J Greenstein & Co, Inc. on November 12. Starting price is $4,600.

“This decision makes it clear that anyone who calls for a boycott against the State of Israel could find themselves liable for damages…if they’re in Israel or not,” attorney Darshan-Leitner stated.
By Adina Katz, World Israel News
Judge Mirit Fohrer of the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court ordered Nadia Abu-Shanab and Justine Sachs –  BDS promoters from New Zealand –  to pay 45,000 shekels ($12,400) in compensation to three Israeli teens who had bought tickets to a Lorde concert, which was ultimately cancelled due to pressure from the two anti-Israel activists, the Hebrew-language Yedioth Ahronoth reported.
Lorde, whose real name is Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor, announced the cancellation of her June concert in December after receiving a letter from the two women urging her not to go to Israel.
“Playing in Tel Aviv will be seen as giving support to the policies of the Israeli government, even if you make no comment on the political situation,” Abu-Shanab and Sachs wrote, claiming that “the military occupation of Palestinian territories has resulted in an apartheid state.”
“This worked very effectively against apartheid in South Africa, and we hope it can work again,” the letter said.
After posting on her Twitter account that she was “considering all options,” the 21-year-old Lorde responded: “Noted! Been speaking w many people about this and considering all options. Thank u for educating me i am learning all the time too.”

Following an infiltration in which 20 Palestinians breached the Israeli border, Lieberman cut fuel supplies to Gaza “as long as the violence does not stop.”
By: Benjamin Kerstein, The Algemeiner
Following an infiltration attempt in which 20 Palestinians succeeded in breaching the border fence between Israel and the Gaza Strip, Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman announced that all fuel supplies Israel provides the coastal enclave will cease immediately.
“As long as the violence in the Gaza Strip does not stop completely, including the sending of incendiary balloons and burning tires toward the Israeli towns, the fuel and gas supplies to the Gaza Strip will not be replenished,” Lieberman wrote on Twitter Saturday evening, Israel’s Channel Two reported.
The infiltration occurred on Friday as 14,000 Palestinians rioted in several places along the border fence as part of the ongoing “march of return.” Terrorists succeeded in placing an explosive device that blew a hole in the fence, allowing around 20 Palestinians to reach Israeli territory.
The IDF opened fire and most of the infiltrators fled back to Gaza. However, four of them headed for an IDF sniper position. Three were killed by IDF fire and the last succeeded in crossing back over the border.

By David Isaac, World Israel News
“Grave of the Maccabees,” a memorial to fallen Jewish soldiers in the 1948 War of Independence, lies in pieces, Aryeh Golan, an Israeli radio reporter for Kan Bet, discovered while on a leisurely stroll last Friday, Oct. 5.
Pictures he took of the memorial which he posted on Kan Bet’s Facebook site show the memorial plaques in a shocking state of disrepair.
“These panels are smashed. Mostly in places where the IDF symbols appear,” Golan wrote in the Facebook post. “One board was completely dismantled, turned into a wave of rocks, and the site was neglected and abandoned.”

By: World Israel News Staff
Palestinian leadership declared on Thursday it will refuse to work the United Nations (UN) peace envoy Nickolay Mladenov based on his role trying to broker a truce between Israel and the Hamas terror group in Gaza.
Specifically, Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) executive committee member Ahmed Majdalani claimed that he informed the UN secretary-general that envoy Mladenov is “no longer acceptable” to the Palestinian Authority, reported AFP.
The announcement is apparently a reaction to Mladenov’s efforts in conjunction with Egypt to hammer out a long-term agreement between Hamas and Israel, an effort that has left Abbas’s government out in the cold.

Spain: Islamic State recruiting in prisons

Spain: Islamic State recruiting in prisonsIslamic State terrorists (AP/Alice Martins)
Network’s existence calls into question the effectiveness of security procedures in Spanish prisons and ‘deradicalization’ programs aimed at rehabilitation.
By Soeren Kern, The Gatestone Institute
Spanish police have dismantled a jihadi network operating inside and across more than a dozen Spanish prisons. The network, allegedly linked to the Islamic State, was established and operated by one of the most implacable jihadis in the Spanish prison system — apparently under the noses of prison authorities.
The network’s existence has called into question not only the effectiveness of security procedures in Spanish prisons, but also of Spanish “deradicalization” programs, which are aimed at “rehabilitating” Islamic militants for eventual “reinsertion” into society.
The group’s core members included 25 jihadis in 17 different prisons (accounting for more than half of the 30 Spanish prisons equipped to house jihadi convicts), according to the Interior Ministry, which provided details of the counterterrorism operation on October 2.
The group — which the Interior Ministry described as a jihadi “Prisons Front” (“frente de cárceles”) — was engaged in recruiting, indoctrinating and radicalizing other inmates, as well as in plotting new jihadi attacks.
The network’s members included convicted jihadis as well as common inmates who were radicalized in prison. Among them were several Spanish citizens who are converts to Islam. Some members were nearing the end of their sentences and were waiting to be released from prison.

On Sunday afternoon, Israel’s government approved for the first time in 16 years a budget for building new Jewish homes in Hebron.
By David Isaac, World Israel News
On Sunday, Oct. 14, the Israeli government approved a budget of roughly $6 million for a 31-unit housing complex to be built in the city of Hebron, located in the hill country of Judea. It is the first approved construction in 16 years.
Yishai Fleisher, international spokesman for the Hebron Jewish community, praised the government’s decision. “The Jewish community of Hebron thanks the Government of Israel for its determined decision to build, in a joint effort, the City of the Patriarchs of the Jewish people, as a victorious answer to all deniers of Jewish history. We deeply thank all the ministers who helped make this important decision happen,” he said.
Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman also hailed the decision as an “important milestone.”
“A new Jewish neighborhood in Hebron, for the first time in 20 years! Instead of a military camp, we will build a new neighborhood, with space for 31 apartments, 2 kindergartens and a dormitory,” Lieberman said in a statement.
The Hebron Jewish community has been urging the government to approve more construction for years. In 2017, following a ruling by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, Cultural Organization (UNESCO) that labeled the Tomb of the Patriarchs an endangered Palestinian world heritage site, the community issued a statement that called for lifting the freeze on Jewish building in Hebron and increasing the Israel’s presence there.

“Hamas apparently hasn’t internalized the message,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at the weekly Cabinet meeting on Sunday.  “If they don’t cease the violent protests against us, they will cease in another way and it will be painful, very painful.”
The prime minister said the government is very close “to activities of a different sort — activities that include extremely intense blows.”
“If it has any sense, Hamas will cease fire and its violent demonstrations now,” he added.
Netanyahu’s words were given added force by Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman, who in an interview this morning with Ynet news said,  “We have arrived at the point where we have to land as strong as possible a blow on Hamas.”

By: Adina Katz, World Israel News
Hagai El-Ad, executive director of B’Tselem, an Israel-based NGO known for condemning Jerusalem’s policies with regard to the Palestinians, will appear before the United Nations Security Council in what Israeli Ambassador Danny Danon has labeled a “disgrace.”
The Council is scheduled to hold its quarterly discussion about the Middle East on Thursday. It will include an overview of the current situation by the U.N. Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Nickolay Mladenov, as well as speeches by Danon, Palestinian Permanent Observer to the U.N. Riyad Mansour and U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley, who will participate for her last time in this debate, having resigned from her position last week.
El-Ad’s opportunity to address the meeting, as a representative of civil society, came at the invitation of Bolivian Ambassador to the U.N. Sacha Llorenty, who is also serving as president of the Security Council this month.
B’Tselem, a left-wing Israeli organization, is known to organize demonstrations and disseminate material attacking the IDF and the Jewish state. NGO Monitor, a pro-Israel watchdog that demands transparency from NGOs and government funders, says that B’Tselem’s claims are marked by major omissions and distortions.

By David Isaac, World Israel News
Israel’s Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman suggested that Israel has no choice but to strike Hamas forces in Gaza in an interview Sunday with Ynet news.
“Before going to war, we need to exhaust all other possibilities, because when we’re sending soldiers to battle we know that some of them aren’t returning home. We’re obligated to exhaust every other way, every other option,” Lieberman said.
“Upon entering the Defense Ministry I said — Israel has no right, no option, no luxury to conduct wars of choice. We can conduct only wars of no choice. In the last months we made every effort, we’ve overturned every stone and at this point ‘no choice’ is behind us.”
“We have arrived at the point where we have to land as strong as possible a blow on Hamas,” Lieberman said, adding that ultimately the decision to strike Hamas will be up to the Cabinet.
The defense minister noted that the Gaza riots pose a serious danger. “Hamas has turned violence on the border into a strategic weapon and by doing so they hope to erode our steadfastness, to erode our deterrence … They want to put pressure on the Israeli public and on the government of Israel,” he said.
On Saturday evening, Lieberman announced Israel would close off fuel supplies to the Gaza Strip after 20 Palestinians broke through the border into Israel.

Wearing tefillin improves your heart function and may even save your life, a new study shows. 
By World Israel News Staff and University of Cincinnati 
A study conducted by researchers at the University of Cincinnati (UC) College of Medicine suggests Jewish men who put on tefillin every morning may receive cardiovascular health benefits, UC stated Thursday.
The ritual, which involves the tight wrapping of an arm with leather banding as part of daily prayer, may generate remote ischemic preconditioning (RIC) that results in protection during heart attacks. RIC is an experimental method of protecting the heart and other organs by temporarily restricting blood flow, triggering the body’s natural protective mechanisms against tissue damage caused by low oxygen levels.
Jack Rubinstein, MD, associate professor in the Division of Cardiovascular Health and Disease and a UC Health cardiologist, says he studied 20 Jewish men living in Greater Cincinnati, nine who wear tefillin daily and 11 who don’t, all aged 18 to 40 and all in good health.
His researchers recorded the participants’ vital signs, drew blood for analysis of circulating cytokines and monocyte function and also measured blood flow in the arm not wrapped with tefillin during the early morning, and then after wearing tefillin for 30 minutes.
“We found people who wear tefillin in either the short or long term, recorded a measurable positive effect on their blood flow. That has been associated with better outcomes in heart disease,” says Rubinstein.

By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
The Canadian government announced Friday the addition of CDN 50 million ($38 million) over the next two years to the United Nations Reliefs and Works Agency (UNRWA) for Palestinian refugees in reaction to the organization’s plea for help following the American withdrawal of $360 million in funding earlier this year.
“Palestinian refugees are among the poorest and most vulnerable, and it is my mandate to help them,” Minister for International Development Marie-Claude Bibeau stated in Parliament.
Canada’s contribution was for the sake of “stability” in the region, as the children would be in UNRWA schools rather than on the streets, she said.
Rona Ambrose, leader of the Conservative opposition, questioned this reasoning in the legislative chamber.

Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked said Wednesday that with President Donald Trump in the White House, “now is the time” to begin applying sovereignty to Area C, which comprises roughly 60 percent of Judea and Samaria, including the Israeli settlements, and is administered by Israel as per the Oslo Accords.
Speaking at the pro-Zionist Im Tirtzu group’s conference in Tel Aviv, Shaked, a lawmaker for the Jewish Home party, touted her party’s insistence on imposing Israel’s formal authority on all of Area C, which is under Israeli civilian and military control. There was never a better opportunity than now to get started, she stressed.

The IDF on Thursday destroyed a cross-border Hamas attack tunnel in the central Gaza Strip, the 15th such tunnel demolished by the army in the past year.
Using advanced detection technologies, the IDF located and then blew up the tunnel from Israeli territory. The tunnel penetrated some 200 meters into Israeli territory.
The IDF noted that the tunnel was under surveillance at all times until it was neutralized.
The tunnel’s purpose was to enable the carrying out of an attack on a nearby Israeli community, the IDF stated.

By Jack Gold, World Israel News
Knesset Speaker MK Yuli Edelstein turned down an invitation to address next month’s ceremony marking the 23rd anniversary of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin’s assassination, an event organized by the group Darkenu.
The Rabin memorial over the years has become a highly politicized event used to lash out at right wing and religious bodies in Israel. Although there has been a recent effort to change the event’s theme to one of inclusiveness and national reconciliation.
Edelstein initially accepted a request to speak at the event after organizers said they wanted speakers from across the political spectrum, but when it became apparent that the event would retain its left-wing orientation he backed out.
“I thought that nearly 25 years after the vile assassination we could overcome our political biases and organize an event that would unite people behind the fundamental values of Israeli society. But unfortunately, it seems the readiness for that has not arrived yet,” Edelstein wrote in a letter announcing his cancellation.

“Sweden has seen a frightening resurgence in anti-Semitism recently, among both Islamists and neo-Nazi elements,” the World Jewish Congress stated.
By The Algemeiner
The World Jewish Congress on Wednesday condemned an anti-Semitic arson attack in the southern Swedish city of Lund the previous night in which the home of a Jewish politician was destroyed.
“The World Jewish Congress, and our president Ronald S. Lauder, stand with our affiliated community in Sweden in denouncing this anti-Semitic attack in the strongest possible terms,” World Jewish Congress CEO and Executive Vice President Robert Singer wrote in a letter to Southern District Police Chief Carina Persson.
Singer urged Swedish authorities to “treat this violent incident with the severity it deserves, and hope that the perpetrator will be swiftly located and brought to justice.”
“Sweden has seen a frightening resurgence in anti-Semitism recently, among both Islamists and neo-Nazi elements who feel empowered and emboldened to target innocent people with violent rhetoric and actions,” Singer noted. “We have witnessed this scourge rear its head numerous times across the country over the last year — including incidents that led to the closure of the community center in Umea — as well as several unfortunate incidents in Malmo in recent months. It is inconceivable that the Jews of Sweden should have to live in fear or hide their identity because of threats of physical or verbal attack.”

“How many of us were more disturbed by Trump’s silence in the wake of Charlottesville than at finding out that two leaders of the Women’s March are hardcore anti-Semites who despise Israel?”
By Joshua S. Block, The Algemeiner
For most of us, there is a reflexive tendency to think of anti-Semitism as something that is propagated by the alt-right — white supremacists, the KKK, or neo-Nazi groups. That version of anti-Semitism was on full display during the violent protests that rocked Charlottesville last year. For us, Charlottesville was like muscle memory. We’ve seen it before, and we know exactly what it means.
But what happens when the hate comes from somewhere unexpected, somewhere much closer to home? What happens when it comes from your friends and allies, and is disguised as something else?
This new form of anti-Semitism, which is being propagated by elements of the far-left, has a name: I’m talking about the pseudo-academic concept of “intersectionality.” It’s one of the most significant challenges facing our community.

President Donald Trump has accepted Nikki Haley’s resignation as U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Israel’s UN Ambassador praises Haley as “true friend of Israel.”
Many are speculating as to the reason for Ambassador Haley’s resignation as Washington’s envoy to the United Nations, but there has been no official reason given to date for the dramatic move.
“Big announcement with my friend Ambassador Nikki Haley in the Oval Office at 10:30 am,” the president tweeted earlier.
Haley discussed her plans with Trump already last week at the White House, the website Axios reported.
The announcement has especially shocked supporters of Israel. “Whatever Trump may have gotten wrong, his choice of Nikki Haley as ambassador to the UN was a masterstroke,” the Boston Globe‘s Jeff Jacoby wrote recently.

Swiss International Air Lines flight LX252 from Switzerland to Tel Aviv last month placed the Arabic town “Esh Sheikh Muwannis”on its onboard inflight map to Tel Aviv. The words ‘Tel Aviv’ appeared to float in the heavens above the plane, raising the ire of pro-Israel activists.
Sheikh Muwannis was a small Arab town that once stood where Tel Aviv University stands today. The town has not exited for over 70 years.
The pro-Israel advocacy group Stand With Us posted the incident on Twitter, writing “Seriously Swiss Air?” and calling on its followers to contact Swiss Air and protest. In response, many supporters of the organization called for a boycott of Swiss Air.

Archaeologists uncovered a unique stone inscription dating back to the Second Temple Period with ‘Jerusalem’ written in full in modern Hebrew script – the first such discovery ever.
The exciting find was presented on Tuesday during a press conference by the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) and the Israel Museum.
Archaeologists discovered the inscription this past winter near the Jerusalem International Convention Center during a dig carried out in the area prior to the construction of a new road, where the foundations of a Roman structure were exposed. The most significant part was a stone column drum, reused in the Roman structure, upon which the Aramaic inscription appears, written in Hebrew letters typical of the Second Temple Period.

Since 1967, the Arab-Israeli conflict has been generally seen through the lens of Israeli “occupation” and the presence of Jewish communities beyond the green line. However, the escalating tension between Fatah and Hamas raises a fundamental question: How can Arab-Israeli peace be achieved in the absence of peace between Hamas and Fatah?
The international community tends to put the onus of peacemaking on Israel. However, there has been increased focus on the growing rift between Hamas-ruled Gaza and Fatah-ruled Ramallah.
Egypt recently accused Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas of escalating the crisis in Gaza, threatening to pull out of its role as mediator. The PA demands that Hamas hand over control of Gaza. In a bid to pressure Hamas, Abbas delayed a Qatari-financed fuel shipment from reaching the energy-starved Strip. The latest move by Ramallah will likely only deepen the growing rift between Hamas and Fatah.

The German Bild newspaper tracked down Adolph Hitler’s last surviving relatives. It turns out they’ve been secretly living in Long Island, New York. 
by David Isaac, World Israel News
The New York Post is calling them “the Hitlers next door.”
It turns out that three of Hitler’s great-nephews Alexander, Louis and Brian who use the last name Stuart-Houston, have been living the American dream in Long Island, New York for decades. They are the only living descendants of the dictator’s paternal side, according to a recent story in Germany’s Bild newspaper, which went looking for them.
They are the sons of William Patrick Hitler, or “Willy,” Hitler’s nephew, the son of Hitler’s half-brother, Alois Hitler Jr. To Willy’s credit, Adolph Hitler described him as “‘eines seiner widerlichsten Verwandten’ — one of his most repulsive relatives…,” according to a New Yorker report.

Ayelet Shaked to High Court: Back off nation-state lawJustice minister Ayelet Shaked seen here at a conference in Jerusalem on May 7, 2018. (Yonatan Sindel/Flash90)
Minister of Justice Ayelet Shaked sent a warning shot across the bow of the Supreme Court, telling it to keep its hands off the Nation-State Law. 
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Speaking at the Kohelet Policy Forum Conference Tuesday, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked forcefully argued that the High Court of Justice should not hear petitions filed against the Nation-State law, Israel’s newest Basic Law.
The Kohelet Policy Forum is a research institute in Jerusalem. According to its website, its goal is “to secure Israel’s future as the nation-state of the Jewish people, to strengthen representative democracy, and to broaden individual liberty and free-market principles in Israel.”
Shaked said, “The doctrine of unconstitutional constitutional reform – more than being Chelm-like, is dangerous. It is liable to lead to the collapse of every governmental foundation, including the principle of separation of powers, which is the basis of our democratic system.”

Hamas praised the terror attack that resulted in the deaths of two Israelis and the wounding of a third, saying it will make Israel “pay a heavy price.”
By Jack Gold, World Israel News
Palestinian terror organizations on Sunday welcomed the deadly attack in the Barkan Industrial Zone in Samaria and praised the terrorist who shot and killed two Israelis and seriously wounded a third.
Hamas praised the slaughter carried out by “a Palestinian youth” that killed two “settlers.”
“We applaud this heroic operation and affirm that it comes as a natural response to the Israeli occupation’s crimes at the expense of the Palestinian people,” the terror group said in a statement, citing “settlers storming the Al-Aqsa Mosque,” attempts of the “occupation authorities” to demolish the illegal Khan al-Ahmar outpost and “daily incursions into the West Bank” as justification for the attack.

By Jack Gold, World Israel News Staff
A senior Trump campaign official approached an Israeli intelligence company for proposals on building a campaign involving fake social media accounts and social media manipulation to influence Republican party voters in a bid to help defeat then-candidate Donald Trump’s rivals and afterwards Democratic Candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016, the New York Times reported Tuesday.
Psy-Group, made up of former Israeli intelligence officers, was approached by Rick Gates, a Trump political adviser. Psy-Group came up with several proposals, which it dubbed “Project Rome.” One proposal that Gates wanted to pursue involved setting up fake online personas to influence 5,000 delegates at the 2016 Republican National Convention, the NY Times reports.

Russia challenges Israel’s sovereignty in Golan Heights
October 10, 2018
Israel’s changing of the Golan Heights’ status “without the approval of the UN Security Council would consist of a violation of existing agreements,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov claimed.
By Jack Gold, World Israel News
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov dismissed Israel’s claims for sovereignty in the Golan Heights when he stated Wednesday that “changing the status of the Golan Heights without the approval of the UN Security Council would consist of a violation of existing agreements,” Israel’s Ynet news reported.
Lavrov was responding to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s statements on Monday that Israel’s presence on the Golan Heights is “a guarantee for stability in the surrounding area.”

“The Golan Heights will always remain under Israeli sovereignty because otherwise we would have Iran and Hezbollah on the shores of the Kinneret [lake],” Netanyahu stated.
Israel’s presence “is a solid reality based on ancient rights” and “a fact that the international community must recognize,” he said.

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley’s surprise departure raises questions about her successor. A former Trump Mideast adviser who left for the private sector is considered the front-runner.
By David Isaac, World Israel News
U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley will be a hard act to follow, particularly in Israel where her announcement sparked an outpouring of praise and gratitude from Jewish leaders. Her surprise announcement Tuesday that she will step down from her post sparked speculation on a possible successor.
Several names have been floated. Dina Powell, a Goldman Sachs executive and former Mideast adviser to Trump, is considered the front-runner. Powell is on the short-list, Trump admitted to reporters on board Air Force One late Tuesday. Four other candidates are on the list whom he did not name.

Is Trump’s administration watering down Iran oil sanctions?

Is Trump’s administration watering down Iran oil sanctions?President Donald Trump's speaks in Iowa, Oct. 9, 2018. (AP/Susan Walsh)
Trump administration officials are reportedly clashing over the extent and severity of the pending sanctions on Iran and may ease Iranian oil imports in some cases.
By Jack Gold, World Israel News
The Trump administration may allow some countries to continue importing Iranian oil on a temporary basis, skirting its own sanctions imposed on Iran, the Washington Free Beacon reported Tuesday.
The report cites U.S. officials who confirmed to the Free Beacon that some nations may get a temporary pass from the new sanctions set to be imposed on Iran’s oil industry at the beginning of November.
The first set of U.S. sanctions against Iran that were eased under the controversial nuclear accord went back into effect in August under an executive order signed by President Donald Trump, targeting financial transactions that involve U.S. dollars, Iran’s automotive sector, the purchase of commercial planes and metals, including gold.

US Ambassador Ivanka?

US Ambassador Ivanka?Ivanka Trump walks to board Air Force One, July 31, 2018 (AP/Evan Vucci)
“I’ve heard how good Ivanka would be,” said President Donald Trump, referring to his daughter as a possible replacement to Nikki Haley, who is stepping down as U.S. ambassador to the U.N.
By David Isaac, World Israel News
“Ivanka would be dynamite,” President Donald Trump said on Tuesday, suggesting he may consider his daughter for the position of U.S. ambassador to the U.N., which Nikki Haley will vacate at the end of the year.
The president made the remarks yesterday on the White House lawn before boarding Marine One for Iowa. “It’s nothing to do with nepotism,” he said, adding, “I’m not sure there is anybody more competent in the world.”

But the president also noted if he chose Ivanka he would open himself to charges of nepotism. “I would then be accused of nepotism, if you can believe it, right?”

Trump’s comments generated much speculation in the press. In an attempt to quell rumors, Ivanka tweeted just after midnight on Wednesday that she wouldn’t be appointed America’s next U.N. ambassador. “It is an honor to serve in the White House alongside so many great colleagues and I know that the President will nominate a formidable replacement for Ambassador Haley. That replacement will not be me,” she tweeted.

Haley’s resignation came as a surprise when she revealed she would step down on Tuesday. She thanked Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner, who were present in the Oval Office during her announcement, describing Jared as a “hidden genius.”

“I can’t say enough good things about Jared and Ivanka,” Haley said. “And they do a lot of things behind the scenes that I wish more people knew about.”

A number of replacements have been floated. The most serious candidate at this point may be Dina Powell, formerly U.S. deputy national security adviser to Trump. She also served in the George W. Bush administration as Assistant Secretary of State for Educational and Cultural Affairs, Deputy Undersecretary of State for Public Affairs and Public Diplomacy, and as an Assistant to the President for Presidential Personnel.

Another possible candidate for the position is current U.S. ambassador to Germany, Ric Grenell.

Egyptian‏ ‏and Palestinian officials on Sunday accused ‎Palestinian Authority (PA) leader Mahmoud Abbas of ‎actively escalating the crisis in the Gaza Strip in ‎hopes that it will force rival Palestinian faction ‎Hamas to hand over control of the coastal enclave. ‎
Hamas, designated as a terrorist group by the European Union, the United States, Israel and several other countries, ousted ‎Abbas’s Fatah-led government from ‎‎Gaza in a military ‎coup in 2007, ‎‎‎effectively ‎splitting the Palestinian ‎Authority into two ‎‎political ‎‎entities.

Egyptian intelligence officials said over the ‎weekend that, given Abbas’s efforts to derail Cairo’s attempts to broker a long-term ‎cease-fire between Israel and Hamas, compounded by the escalating Gaza border tensions, Egypt was ‎considering ceasing its efforts to mediate an inter-‎Palestinian reconciliation.‎

Police are on the hunt for a Palestinian-Arab terrorist who tied up two employees at the Barkan Industrial Park in Samaria and shot them at close range Sunday morning.
By: Adina Katz, World Israel News
A 23-year-old terrorist from the nearby village of Shweika, near Tulkarem, handcuffed and shot two employees Sunday morning at the Barkan Industrial Park in Samaria at close range with a Carl Gustav assault rifle.
The victims were named as Kim Levengrond Yehezkel, 28, a mother from the central Israeli city of Rosh Ha’ayin, and Ziv Hajbi, a 35-year-old father of three from Rishon LeZion, south of Tel Aviv.
A 54-year-old woman was shot and wounded by the terrorist after spotting him. She told paramedics that she heard a loud noise and went to check its source, Ynet reported.
“This was a very severe terrorist attack in which two Israelis were brutally murdered and a citizen was also wounded,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at the opening of the weekly cabinet meeting in Jerusalem.

Sara Netanyahu goes on trial

Sara Netanyahu goes on trialSara Netanyahu (AP/Andrew Harnik)
Sara Netanyahu, wife of Israel’s prime minister, faces charges of fraud and breach of trust at the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court Sunday.
By David Isaac
Sara Netanyahu, wife of Israel’s prime minister, faces charges of fraud and breach of trust at the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court Sunday. Also on trial is the office’s deputy director-general Ezra Saidoff.
In what has been called the Prepared Food Affair, prosecutors allege that Sara Netanyahu ordered an estimated $100,000 in meals from prestigious restaurants between September 2010 to March 2013. Regulations forbid ordering catering services while a chef is employed. The indictment, which was filed in June, details the transactions for each month.
Mrs. Netanyahu had allegedly been aware of the restrictions. The indictment accuses her, in coordination with then-deputy director-general Ezra Saidoff of the prime minister’s office, of ordering employees to hide the fact that a chef was employed “so that this wouldn’t be exposed by the office’s accountants, thereby receiving double funding at the treasury’s expense to pay for restaurant meals at the residence.” The cook was therefore listed as part of the cleaning staff.
She is also accused of using waiters to serve the meals on weekends and at private affairs, listing them as “extra manpower” or “cleaners” to conceal the fact that they were illegally employed.
“The accused have made various claims they know aren’t true and which they themselves don’t believe to be true,” according to the indictment, adding that “hundreds of thousands of shekels … were extracted continuously and methodically, on the basis of inaccurate claims.”

By: JNS.org
U.S. President Donald Trump’s Special Envoy for Middle East Affairs Jason Greenblatt has spoken with a number of senators on both sides of the political aisle recently about the president’s plan for peace between Israel and the Palestinians, Greenblatt tweeted on Friday.
Greenblatt said it had been well worth it for him and Trump adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner to meet with Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham, Bob Corker, James Lankford, James Risch, and Democratic Sens. Ben Cardin, Chris Coons, Jeanne Shaheen, Bob Menendez and Chris Van Hollen to “discuss the Trump administration’s peace efforts.”
Trump and his staff have spent many months working on what he has called the “deal of the century.” Palestinian reports in August said that the president would unveil it at his address to the U.N. General Assembly in September, but that did not come to pass.
The United States has, in the past, warned that if ‎Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas ‎remains adamant in his refusal to engage the United States as ‎a mediator in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, ‎Washington will introduce its regional peace plan ‎regardless of his reservations. ‎

Other measures could include more restrictions at Kerem Shalom, Gaza’s prime commercial crossing point and the only one with Israel.

Palestinian terrorist Islam Yusuf Abu Hamid was indicted in an IDF military court in July for the murder of 20-year-old Ronen Lubarsky, an IDF combat soldier from the elite Duvdevan commando unit.
Lubarsky’s family is boycotting the murder trial because, their lawyer says, it is set up so that Hamid will not receive the death penalty.
Lubarsky was mortally wounded in May during an operation to apprehend a squad of Palestinian terrorists involved in recent shooting attacks in the territories. Hamid threw a heavy marble slab that landed on the victim’s head, leading to his death hours later.
Ari Lubarsky, the victim’s brother, demanded that the terrorist be given the death penalty instead of going to jail. “The party must end,” he stated. “The terrorist’s four brothers are imprisoned in Israeli jails. We demand one thing from the Military Advocate General: the death penalty f

Merkel: Iran must not achieve nuclear weaponsGerman Chancellor Angela Merkel in Israel. (Yonatan Sindel/Flash90)
German Chancellor Angela Merkel made clear her opposition to Iran’s acquisition of nuclear weapons on Thursday during a meeting with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin.
By: World Israel News Staff
“We want to prevent Iran from using nuclear weapons,” German Chancellor Angela Merkel stated during her meeting with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin at his residence in Jerusalem.
Merkel made the comments in response to Rivlin’s remarks on the looming Iranian nuclear threat, which Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu highlighted during his speech at the United Nations General Assembly last week.
Rivlin referred specifically to the sanctions that the US is in the process of reimposing on Iran following President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic. Under the agreement, Iran’s economic outlook significantly improved with European nations lining up to do business with Tehran.
Since the US announced its exit from the agreement, Iran’s economy has gone into free-fall, with its currency bottoming out and foreign corporations preparing to comply with US law.
In response, the European Union has proposed the creation of a financial entity to help businesses sidestep the sanctions, a move that has been roundly condemned by Israel and the US.

Moroccan king orders Holocaust studies added to school curriculumMorocco's King Mohammed VI (Youtube)
“Education has the power to fight against discrimination and racism and against the ugly phenomenon of anti-Semitism,” stated King Mohammed VI of Morocco.
By: World Israel News Staff
King Mohammed VI of Morocco on Wednesday ordered that the Holocaust be included in the school textbooks of Maghreb high schools, the Moroccan news website Le Desk reported.
The report, widely circulated on social networks, indicated that during his visit to the United Nations General Assembly, the king sent an order to the Moroccan Minister of Education to introduce studies on the Holocaust to the curriculum.
“The history we teach our children must contain a range of pluralistic opinions and stories. It must present the greatest moments of humanity as well as its darkest moments,” the king stated, according to the report.
“Education has the power to fight against discrimination and racism and against the ugly phenomenon of anti-Semitism,” the king added.
Audrey Azoulay, the Jewish director-general of UNESCO and daughter of André Azoulay, an adviser to the king, praised the monarch’s decision, writing on her Twitter page that “the king has presented anti-Semitism as the absolute opposite of freedom of expression and coexistence.” She said he called the war against anti-Semitism a “war of education and culture.”
Morocco has diplomatic relations with Israel and the government of King Mohammed VI, like his father, Mohammed V, is known for his compassionate attitude toward Jews.

Morawiecki allegedly made anti-Semitic comments about “greedy” and “rich” Americans, Jews, Germans, Englishmen and Swiss running hedge funds.
By: World Israel News Staff
In secret recordings from 2013, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki allegedly made anti-Semitic comments about “greedy” and “rich” Americans, Jews, Germans, Englishmen and Swiss running hedge funds, JTA reported.
The remarks, made before Morwiecki’s rise to power and publicized Tuesday by Onet, the largest Polish web portal, were part of a three-hour-long recording.
In another recording, then-Interior Minister Bartlomiej Sienkiewicz appeared to ask the country’s central bank chief to give the economy a boost to help the government get re-elected, according to JTA. Such a move is illegal, as under Polish law, the central bank must not interfere in politics.
In February, Israeli politicians accused Morawiecki of anti-Semitism for equating the Polish perpetrators in the Holocaust alleged “Jewish perpetrators,” setting off a new chapter in an angry dispute over Poland’s new bill criminalizing the mention of Polish complicity in the Nazi-led genocide.

France froze the assets belonging to Iran’s Intelligence Ministry, which is tied to a foiled terror attack in the country. 
By: AP
French authorities on Tuesday froze the assets of the interior security section of Iran’s Intelligence Ministry as well as those of two Iranians, one a diplomat who is a suspect in an alleged aborted bid to attack an Iranian exile group.
A joint statement by France’s interior, economy and foreign ministers made clear the move to freeze funds was linked to the allegedly aborted attempt to bomb the June 30 rally outside Paris by the People’s Mujahedeen of Iran, or MEK.
The move was “preventative, targeted and proportionate,” the statement said. It noted France’s determination to fight terrorism, especially on French soil.
“This act of an extreme gravity envisioned on our territory could not go without a response,” it said.

IAEA chief rejects Israel’s demand to inspect secret Iran nuclear site

IAEA Chief Yukiya Amano refused Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s call to inspect Iran’s secret atomic energy site. 

By: World Israel News Staff

The United Nations’ International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on Tuesday rejected Israel’s demand to inspect a newly-exposed site in Iran related to its nuclear program, saying that “the Agency sends inspectors to sites and locations only when needed.”
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu challenged the IAEA at the United Nations General Assembly last week, revealing that Iran stored “massive amounts of equipment and materiel” in a Tehran neighborhood, information it had shared with the IAEA six weeks ago. The IAEA, however, failed to act, Netanyahu said.
“I have a message to the head of the IAEA, Mr. Yukiya Amano,” Netanyahu said. “I believe he wants to do the right thing. Well Mr. Amano, do the right thing. Go inspect this atomic warehouse. Immediately. Before the Iranians finish clearing it out.”

Palestinians should not be “citizens of Israel or subjects of Israel,” Netanyahu told NPR, advocating a Palestinian entity with “nearly all the powers [of sovereignty], but not the ones of security.”
By: JNS.org
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he does not want Palestinians to become Israeli citizens or subjects of Israel. This development comes a few days after the leader’s speech at the annual U.N. General Assembly.
“I don’t want them either as citizens of Israel or subjects of Israel,” Netanyahu said in an interview with National Public Radio (NPR), which was scheduled to air on Monday.
“But I think  . . . we have a third model at the very least, which is what I’m talking about: basically, all the powers of sovereignty, or nearly all the powers, but not the ones of security,” he continued. “Look, in the Middle East, which is littered with failed states, that’s often the best you can do.”
Netanyahu added that the Palestinians should look no further than the entity they are under.
“They would have those rights in their own territory,” he said. “In other words, they have their own parliament, they have their own government, they have their own flag, they have their own anthem, they have their own tax system.”

By: TPS and World Israel News Staff
The Education and Defense ministers, Naftali Bennett and Avigdor Liberman, have been exchanging insults as of late, with the former accusing the defense apparatus of not taking a strong enough stance against threats emanating from Gaza, and the latter accusing Bennett of being irresponsible and messianic.
On Tuesday, Bennett claimed Liberman is pursuing a “leftist” policy with regard to the Gaza Strip.
“Liberman’s policy towards Hamas is weak and leftist,” said Bennett, adding that he is “dragging the whole government to the left.”
Liberman, however, had his own fighting words for Bennett.
“The Education Minister is not saying a single word about education, so it’s clear that he does not care – not about education or about defense,” Liberman said about Bennett.

HaMoked Center for the Defence of the Individual, a New Israel Fund-supported legal group, is assisting relatives of terrorist Fadi al-Qanbar, who murdered four Israeli soldiers in a truck-ramming attack in Jerusalem in January 2017.
The Jerusalem appeals court on Tuesday ruled that al-Kanaber’s relatives, who are not Israeli citizens, be deported. The family is also considered a security threat as some have ties to ISIS, according to state information.
“The family of the terrorist had no knowledge of [the terrorist’s] intention. They are innocent. The interior minister does not have the authority to revoke residency,” HaMoked representatives said at the hearing.

UNRWA evacuates workers to Israel amid death threats

The UN agency was forced to evacuate 10 of its top officials from Gaza to Israel amid death threats from the agency’s employees.
By: World Israel News Staff
The Palestinians’ dedicated agency UNRWA assisted 10 international senior officials in their escape from the Gaza Strip to Israel on Monday based on credible threats to their safety.
Israeli media outlet Ynet reported that UNRWA took these steps after officials received death threats following announcements related to major layoffs necessitated by the Trump administration’s massive aid cuts, which slashed millions of dollars from the agency’s coffers and officially ended American support for the UN body.
The harassment reportedly was perpetrated by the agency’s own disgruntled employees, with the officials spirited out of Gaza via the Erez Crossing, despite the fact that it was officially closed due to the Sukkot holiday.
While UNRWA’s deputy head is still in Gaza, Ynet reported that multiple sources suggested further evacuations may be required.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and members of her cabinet will arrive in Israel on Wednesday evening for a two-day visit in the country.
Merkel is slated to meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin. Netanyahu last met Merkel in Berlin in June. The chancellor visited the Jewish state in February 2014.
The Palestinian issue and the Iran nuclear deal, which Germany is struggling to salvage, will be the focus of their meetings.
According to IDF Radio, Merkel’s office informed Israel that if the illegal Bedouin village of Khan al-Ahmar is demolished before her arrival, she will cancel her visit. The German Embassy, however, denied the report, saying there was “never a doubt that the government to government consultations would take place.”

By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Israeli forces recently arrested three Hamas operatives in Judea and Samaria who were planning attacks after being recruited to the terrorist organization through social media, according to a report publicized by the Shabak (Israel Security Service, aka Shin Bet) in the Hebrew media Wednesday.
Issa Shalalda, 21, and Amar Masoud, 20, revealed during their interrogation that Hamas activists in the Gaza Strip had convinced them through Facebook to be active participants in the terrorist infrastructure the organization has been trying to build in Judea and Samaria. The two recruits, who are members of a Hamas student group at Birzeit University near Ramallah, told the investigators that they had undergone various kinds of military training to enable them to carry out attacks, in addition to aiding the organization in the transfer of terror funding to others.

By: AP
The United Nations’ highest court on Wednesday ordered the United States to lift sanctions on Iran that affect imports of humanitarian goods and products and services linked to the safety of civil aviation.
The ruling by the International Court of Justice is legally binding, but it remains to be seen if the administration of President Donald Trump will comply.
Trump moved to restore tough US sanctions in May after withdrawing from Tehran’s nuclear accord with world powers. Iran challenged the sanctions in a case filed in July at the International Court of Justice.
In a preliminary ruling, the court said that Washington must “remove, by means of its choosing, any impediments arising from” the re-imposition of sanctions to the export to Iran of medicine and medical devices, food and agricultural commodities and spare parts and equipment necessary to ensure the safety of civil aviation.

By: World Israel News Staff
After Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu revealed at the UN on Thursday an Iranian site he maintains was used to store
nuclear materials, the Iranian regime is reportedly racing to conceal the materials and any evidence that the site ever existed.
According to a report in Times of Israel, a senior Israeli source claimed the Iranian regime is currently attempting to cover up the site, commenting that the Tehran is currently attempting to disperse the 15 kilograms of radioactive material to which Netanyahu referred in his UN speech.
The material was reportedly removed from the site at the beginning of August.
On Friday, Netanyahu elaborated on his UN revelations in statements to reporters, demanding that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) take action against a regime he says “deceiv[es] and cheat[s] the international community.” According to Netanyahu, “the Iranian plan” involves lying in wait for a “a crisis somewhere or other” to emerge, after which it will “break out … a nuclear arsenal.”

By: AP and World Israel News Staff
Facing a financial crisis after the United States cut funding, the head of the Palestinians’ U.N. agency (UNRWA) claims the Palestinian issue will persist whether there’s money or not to run the agency.
While UNRWA got some good news Wednesday with new pledges of $118 million, it remains $68 million in the hole this year. And in January it will face the problem of trying to find funding for next year’s budget of about $1.2 billion.
“Of course, we worry about it,” UNRWA Commissioner General Pierre Krahenbuhl said. “The key question for next year will be whether these countries that have shown themselves so generous in supporting us this year … are they prepared to sustain those contributions?”

European Parliament Budgetary Committee voted to freeze over 15 million euros from the Palestinian Authority (PA) if they do not remove incitement from their textbooks, The Jerusalem Post reported.
“The reserve will be released “when the Palestinian Authority has committed to reform its school curriculum and textbooks to bring them in line with UNESCO standards for peace and tolerance in school education,” according to the bill, which will go to a plenary vote on October 24, the Post said.
If passed, the report continues, the European Union (EU) – the largest single donor to the PA – will withhold 15,440,597 euros from the PA until it makes the necessary changes, the report continues.

Creating Mental Strength: The Power to Endure Despite Life's Challenges
Getting rid of mental junk food and learning how to harness the spiritual fortitude that lies within your soul.
When you want to work your muscles you go to the gym. It takes sweat, time and endurance but eventually you start seeing change. You feel better and have more stamina.
What about our mind? Emotional stamina takes us through those tough times we never saw coming. More than willpower, it is our ability to deal with challenges and unexpected circumstances. We usually discover our mental muscle when we confront a great life test. Sometimes we become shaken and realize that we are weaker than we imagined.
How can we help ourselves develop strength under pressure?

“The president proves again that the US is on the right side of history,” Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon said following Trump’s address to the General Assembly.
By: Adina Katz, World Israel News
In his address to the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly Tuesday, President Donald Trump repeated his determination to forge a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians, reiterating that moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem advances that goal.
“I moved the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. The United States is committed to a future of peace and stability in the region, including peace between the Israelis and Palestinians,” Trump stated.
“That aim is advanced, not harmed, by acknowledging the obvious facts,” he said.
Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon immediately praised Trump’s remarks.
“The president proves again that the US is on the right side of history. While standing on the side of Israel in the struggle for stability in the Middle East, the United States leads the United Nations into a new era that ends its obsession with Israel and pushes back against the Iranian regime,” Danon remarked.
Regarding Iran, Trump said the 2015 nuclear deal was a “windfall” for the Islamic Republic, whose leaders “sow chaos, death and destruction.”

Russia: We have proof IDF ‘distorts’ facts,’ responsible for downed planeRussian President Vladimir Putin. (Shutterstock)
Russia’s defense ministry says it has evidence that the IDF report on the fatal Russian plane crash “distorts” the facts surrounding the incident and that Israel is to blame.
The Russian news agency TASS says it has data proving the Israel Air Force’s responsibility for the downing of a Russian plane last week that killed 15 servicemen.
Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said on Monday that the ministry “took notice of certain comments seeking to distort the picture of the incident and thoroughly scrutinized the IDF statement,” TASS reported, referring to the Israeli military’s insistence that the Israeli fighter jets had already left Syria at the time of the incident.
“Today, we will give additional data available to the Russian defense ministry to track the Israeli planes and the S-200 system’s missile literally second-by-second. These data were taken from the radars of the command and control post of the S-400 missile system deployed at the Hmeymim airbase,” Konashenkov said.

According to the report, Gaza’s economy contracted by six percent in the first quarter of 2018. It said unemployment is now over 50 percent — and over 70 percent among Gaza’s youth.
The World Bank cited various factors, starting with Israel’s decade-long blockade against the territory’s terrorist Hamas rulers, for the precarious downturn. Egypt also enforced a blockade in response to the Islamic terror threat.
The report also cited budget cuts by the rival Palestinian Authority and a reduction in international aid to the Palestinians, particularly from the United States.

Iran is “reportedly developing the capability for its proxy militias to produce their own missiles inside of Iraq,” Haley warned.
By: World Israel News Staff
In her remarks at a UN Security Council briefing on the situation in the Middle East, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley warned that “Iranian proxies in Iraq operate openly, with funding, training, and weapons supplied by Tehran. The Iranian regime has reportedly begun over the last few months to transfer ballistic missiles to these proxies in Iraq. It is reportedly developing the capability for its proxy militias to produce their own missiles inside of Iraq.”

 Gunmen disguised as soldiers attacked an annual Iranian military parade Saturday in the country’s oil-rich southwest, killing at least 29 people and wounding 60 in the bloodiest assault to strike the country in recent years.
By: AP
The attack in Ahvaz saw gunfire sprayed into a crowd of marching Revolutionary Guardsmen, bystanders and government officials watching from a nearby riser. Suspicion immediately fell on the region’s Arab separatists, who previously only attacked unguarded oil pipelines under the cover of darkness.
Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif immediately blamed the attack on regional countries and their “U.S. masters,” calling the gunmen “terrorists recruited, trained armed and paid” by foreign powers. That further raises tensions in the Mideast as Tehran’s nuclear deal with world powers is in jeopardy after President Donald Trump withdrew America from the accord.

Various Iranian officials claimed Israel was responsible for a deadly attack on a military parade in Iran on Saturday.
By: World Israel News Staff
Gunmen disguised as soldiers opened fire at an annual Iranian military parade on Saturday, with the death toll reaching 29 in the bloodiest attack the Islamic Republic has seen in years.
The attack took place in Ahvaz, with the assailants apparently targeting Revolutionary Guardsmen.
While suspicion immediately fell on the Arab separatists in the region, who have mounted previous attacks, several top Iranian officials also pointed fingers at Israel and the United States.
Almost immediately, Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif blamed regional rivals and their “U.S. masters,” which was interpreted as a reference to Israel and Saudi Arabia.
Echoing Zarif’s comments, an Iranian army spokesman also fingered Israel and the US, without citing any support for his accusations.
Brigadier General Abolfazl Shekarchi told Iran’s official news agency IRNA that the gunmen were “not from [the Islamic State] or other groups fighting [Iran’s] Islamic system … but are linked to America and [Israel’s intelligence agency] Mossad,” Times of Israel reported.

Israeli report exposes how Syrian fire took down Russian plane
 September 22, 2018
An Israeli report presents a detailed description of the events leading up to Syria shooting down a Russian spy plane, which occurred when Assad’s forces responded to an Israeli airstrike.
By: JNS.org and World Israel News Staff
Following an urgent meeting between Israeli and Russian military officials after the downing of a Russian spy plane over Syria, a 40-page report reveals that Syria shot down the aircraft while responding to an Israeli airstrike.
On the night of Sept. 17, a Russian Il-20 reconnaissance plane carrying 15 crew members was shot down just after Israel attacked a weapons depot outside Latikia believed to be connected to Iranian-backed terror.
Russia initially blamed Israel for the incident, but Israel responded that while it had, in fact, performed the attack—an official admission Israel makes only very rarely—it was not responsible for the downed aircraft.
Israeli officials traveled to Moscow on Thursday to present the report, which shows that Syria fired dozens of barrages indiscriminately for 40 minutes following the attack, long after the Israeli planes returned to home soil. According to the report, one of the missiles hit the plane, causing it to crash

Israel’s atomic energy commission director announced at an international meeting this week that Israel is taking Iranian threats seriously and is protecting key infrastructure accordingly.
By: World Israel News Staff
At the annual meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna on Tuesday, Israel’s atomic energy chief Zeev Snir addressed recent threats issued by the Iranian regime.
Snir commented, “We cannot ignore the repeated and explicit threats, made by Iran and its proxies, to attack Israel’s nuclear sites. These outrageous threats, require Israel to take action and continue to protect and defend its nuclear facilities.”
With regard to the potential for Iranian strikes, Snir noted, “These facilities are constantly upgraded and reinforced, in line with IAEA safety guidelines, in order to withstand any attack.”
In addition to highlighting Israeli preparedness for strikes from the Islamic Republic, Snir also challenged the IAEA to  investigate Iran’s secret nuclear activities.
To that end, Snir referenced Iran’s purported “lies and concealment efforts,” demanding that the IAEA “conduct a robust verification of Iran’s clandestine activities” and its “covert nuclear weapons program,” which Snir referred to as “a documented fact.”
Snir also drew attention to Syria’s covert attempt to construct a nuclear reactor, which Israel destroyed in 2007.

Israeli terror victim wins $1.5 million verdict under nation-state law

The judge used the new Basic Law to rule on a two-decades-old lawsuit, awarding a plaintiff millions of shekels in damages.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Jerusalem District Court Judge Moshe Drori awarded 5.4 million shekels (1.5 million US dollars) to a man who was badly injured 20 years ago in a Tel Aviv attack committed by Hamas terrorists. The basis of the ruling was the new nation-state law.
The unprecedented ruling quoted a clause in the law that appears on its face to provide support for Diaspora Jewry facing anti-Semitism: “The State shall strive to ensure the well-being of the Jewish people and of its citizens who are in distress due to their Jewishness or citizenship.”
However, as the judge wrote, “Anyone who reads the Hamas charter” can see the danger that the terror group poses to Jews, reasoning that “the Jewish people, … certainly when they are in Israel, are defined as ‘in distress due to their Jewishness.’”
Since the state did not “ensure the well-being of its citizens,” which is now its duty according to the nation-state law, he said that the law serves as “alternative relief in ensuring – and certainly not obstructing – a Jew injured in a terror attack by Hamas from receiving the highest possible compensation according to Israeli law.”
The plaintiff, David Mashiah, along with 15 other people, was injured in August 1998 when a bomb placed in a reinforced steel garbage can on Allenby Street in Tel Aviv exploded. He was the most seriously injured, to the point of receiving 100% disability from the National Insurance Institute.

IDF to demolish home of soldier’s murderer

IDF to demolish home of soldier’s murdererIDF Staff Sergeant Ronen Lubarsky (Courtesy Family)
The multi-story structure was illegally rebuilt after being destroyed following a terrorist attack by the killer’s brother in 1994.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
The IDF Spokesperson announced Thursday that the entire house of First Sergeant Ronen Lubarsky’s killer in al-Amari near Ramallah would be destroyed.
The murderer, Islam Yousef Abu Hamid, dropped a marble slab on the soldier’s head during an arrest operation his unit carried out in May in the Ramallah area, and Lubarsky soon died of his injuries. The terrorist was arrested two weeks later, and talk almost immediately began regarding demolishing his family’s home, a move that many consider to be a deterrent to stop other potential attacks.
The original plan, however, was to demolish only two of the four floors of the home. It was then found that this house had been reconstructed illegally after the original structure was destroyed by Israeli authorities following the 1994 murder of a Shin Bet operative, Noam Cohen, at the hands of one of Abu Hamid’s brothers.
Cohen’s car was ambushed in a hail of gunfire during a Shin Bet operation near Ramallah. When he stepped out of the car to return fire, he was mortally wounded and later died. Two other colleagues were injured in the attack.

Downed Russian plane was Syria’s fault, Netanyahu tells Putin

Downed Russian plane was Syria’s fault, Netanyahu tells PutinPM Netanyahu and Russian President Vladimir Putin (Amos Ben-Gershom/GPO)
While Moscow initially blamed Israel for a Russian aircraft that was shot down in Syria, Netanyahu reportedly told Putin that Syria was “responsible for shooting down [the] plane.”
By: TPS and World Israel News
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu spoke to Russian President Vladimir Putin over the telephone on Tuesday, following Monday’s incident which saw Syrian missile defense systems shoot down a Russian military plane carrying 15 soldiers, shortly after the Israeli Air Force carried out an airstrike against an Iranian munitions base in Latakia.
On Monday, while responding to an Israeli airstrike, Syrian missile defense systems shot down a Russian plane carrying 15 Russian soldiers over the Mediterranean sea. Moscow blamed Israel for the incident, claiming that they were not briefed in time about the planned strike.
Netanyahu expressed his regret, but insisted that the blame rests with Syria, offering Israel’s full cooperation to Russia in investigating the incident.
While the Kremlin communicated to Israel that the strike violated Syria’s sovereignty and breached Russian-Israeli compacts regarding protocol in Syria, Putin reportedly was receptive to Netanyahu’s explanation, but warned the Israeli prime minister “not to allow such situations in the future,” according to Times of Israel.

Responding to demands from the Ethiopian-Israeli community, Netanyahu vowed to facilitate the immigration of around 1,000 Ethiopians from the Falassh Mura community.
By: World Israel News Staff
At a meeting on Sunday of the ministerial committee that overseas issues related to the Ethiopian-Israeli community, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed to help bring to Israel a significant number of new immigrants from Ethiopia.
At the meeting, Netanyahu commented, “[A]fter consulting with MKs [David] Amsalem and [Avraham] Neguise, I am pleased to inform you that I have decided that approximately 1,000 members [of the Falash Mura community] – whose children are already here – must be brought to Israel.”
Netanyahu noted that the decision follows immigration of 1,300 Falash Mura who already immigrated to Israel. The term “Falash Mura” refers to Ethiopians who claim Jewish descent but whose ancestors converted to Christianity either forcibly or voluntarily.
On Sunday, Netanyahu highlighted “the importance with which we have been handling this precious community, which is part of our people and part of our state.”

By: JNS.org
Amid shared concerns over Iran’s regional aggression among other interests, Israel and Turkey have been attempting to mend relations with one another despite their differences, according to an Israeli media report on Monday.
Were the latest discussions to mark progress, both nations would return their respective ambassadors in early October, according to the Israeli daily Yediot Achronot.
Such a move would occur five months after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan blamed Israel for its response to violent protests along the Gaza border, labeling the country as a “terrorist state” that commits “genocide.”
Turkey recalled its ambassador and kicked out Israeli ambassador Eitan Na’eh and his country’s consul in Istanbul. Israel retaliated by expelling Turkey’s consul-general in Jerusalem and summoned its deputy ambassador in Tel Aviv.

Israeli kidney donations triples due to Orthodox Jewish donors
 September 17, 2018
Israeli kidney donations triples due to Orthodox Jewish donors(Shutterstock)
The number of annual live kidney transplants in Israel has nearly tripled since 2010. New research says the growth is due to Orthodox donors.
By: Brian Blum, Israel21c
The number of live kidney transplants performed per year in Israel has nearly tripled since 2010. A new research paper co-authored by Prof. Meni Koslowsky, a psychology professor at Ariel and Bar-Ilan universities, claims that the majority of that growth is coming from the Orthodox Jewish population.

Koslowsky and his colleagues wonder whether the results can be replicated in other countries through similar faith-based initiatives.
Live transplants are greatly preferred over donations from someone who has died. The transplant can be planned and the number of kidneys available can be increased through educational and outreach programs.

The need for such an increase jumped in 2008 when an international agreement known as the Declaration of Istanbul came out in support of prohibiting organ trafficking and “transplant tourism.”
The Istanbul Declaration resulted in a decrease in the number of Israelis obtaining kidney transplants overseas and a subsequent increase in the number of patients on the waiting list.
Ambivalent relationship to organ donations
Religious Israelis have long had an ambivalent relationship to the concept of organ donation. Historically, many (although not all) rabbinic authorities rejected the use of organs for transplantation from deceased donors. At the same time, most rabbis encourage living kidney donation.
Nonprofit organization Matnat Chaim (“Gift of Life” in English) was established in 2009 to educate potential donors from the Orthodox Jewish community on the risks and benefits of “altruistic” (that is, non-obligatory) live kidney donation.

On a budget of just $1 million a year, Matnat Chaim has advertised on radio, television, in newspapers and on the Internet. The organization helps donors navigate the health system and refers them to physicians with particular experience in advising kidney donors.

The results: while the number of kidneys from deceased donors increased slightly in the first six years of the past decade – from 87 in 2010 to 115 in 2016 – the number of live kidney donors jumped from 78 to 222 in the same time period.
Non-argumentative influence
The paper also reveals that, while only 27 percent of live donors in 2011 were referred by Matnat Chaim, by 2016 that number had increased to 55 percent – a majority of all kidney donations in the country. By the end of 2016, Matnat Chaim had facilitated a total of 494 live kidney donations.
The paper goes into details on what Matnat Chaim is doing right, including techniques such as “non-argumentative influence” and the “messenger effect” – the use of influential figures such as rabbis to give the kidney donation message greater weight.
There’s still work to be done: 847 individuals were still on the Israel kidney transplant waiting list at the end of 2016, the researchers point out. That’s 13 percent of the total number of patients being treated with renal replacement therapy (dialysis).

Aharony, a theoretical physicist in Rehovot’s world-renowned Weizmann Institute, sent a letter to over a dozen speakers before the event asking them to withdraw since the university is located in what he deems “occupied territory.”

Despite the late hour, thousands of people from all backgrounds made their way to the Kfar Etzion cemetery, just south of Jerusalem, to mourn the life Ari Fuld, a well-known Israel activist, husband, father of four, friend to many.

As the singing continued, many spoke quietly amongst themselves of how Fuld had impacted their lives at different stages.

On Sunday morning, Fuld was stabbed to death in a terrorist attack outside a supermarket at the Gush Etzion Junction. Before succumbing to his wounds, Fuld managed to chase down the terrorist and shoot him.

An official in Ramallah asked, “What more needs to happen for the [president’s] office to realize that Trump doesn’t just make promises or threats, he carries them out?”
By: Daniel Siryoti, Israel Hayom/JNS.org
A series of recent U.S. steps against the Palestinian Authority (P.A.) has infuriated the Palestinian leadership, but the outrage directed at the U.S. administration has been amplified by growing criticism directed at P.A. leader Mahmoud Abbas, who has made “every possible mistake” since U.S. President Donald Trump entered the White House, according to a senior Palestinian official who spoke to Israel Hayom.
The official said that Abbas—fearing additional American sanctions on the P.A.—has instructed the Palestinians to “stop attacking [U.S. President Donald] Trump and the administration in Washington and to moderate statements against the U.S.”
Following the American decision last week to close the PLO mission in Washington, as well as the latest decision to stop funding projects that bring Israelis and the Palestinians together, Abbas has decided to shelve his plan to criticize the actions of the Trump administration at the U.N. General Assembly in New York at the end of the month.
“The closure of the PLO offices in Washington was shocking,” the official told Israel Hayom. “We didn’t think Trump would go so far as to shut down the official Palestinian [diplomatic] mission in the U.S.”

By: Ben Kerstein, The Algemeiner
Despite the disturbingly high number of terror attacks on French Jews in recent years, there will be little or no Jewish presence at this year’s ceremonies marking a national day of mourning for French terror victims, because it falls on September 19 — Yom Kippur, the holiest day on the Jewish calendar.
Chief Rabbi of France Haim Korsia told Makor Rishon he has participated in previous such ceremonies, at one of which he heard “the emotional and sad testimony of my good friend Shmuel Sandler,” a father and grandfather of victims of the 2012 massacre at a Jewish school in Toulouse.
This year will be different, but “I asked the rabbis to add a special prayer for the victims of the terror attacks that struck our country. This is our way to connect with the events that take place on a national level.”
The chief rabbi stated that the date of the national ceremony may be changed in the coming years, and he has asked for it to be moved to the month of March.
The president of the French chapter of B’nai B’rith, Philippe Meyer, tweeted, “It is unacceptable to us that they will not allow Jewish families, who are victims of French terror, to participate in the national ceremony for victims of terror because it takes place on Yom Kippur.”

Israel has released an American law professor detained for allegedly trying to block Israeli police operating in an illegal Bedouin hamlet slated for demolition.
Frank Romano, 66, was detained on Friday in the embattled village of Khan al-Ahmar, along with two Palestinian activists.
Witnesses said that Romano stood in front of heavy equipment being used to clear barriers that had been set up to slow demolition. Activists said he began a hunger strike while in detention.
Gaby Lasky, Romano’s lawyer and a star left-wing activist, said a court ordered his release Sunday. She said he was freed early Monday after police decided not to appeal the decision.
Upon his release, Romano returned to the village and said: “I can continue the struggle with you.”
He was reportedly told to leave the country by September 25.
Israel is expected to demolish the village in the coming days.

An Irish law against importing goods and services from ‘occupied territories’ could create severe legal issues for the Emerald Isle. 
By: World Israel News Staff
Ireland could face infringement proceedings by the European Union (EU) if a bill that would ban imports from Israeli factories in Judea and Samaria and in the Golan Heights becomes law, the European Commission has warned.
The Irish Times (IT) reported Saturday that an Irish government official privately sought the advice of the commission’s trade directorate last week on the proposed legislation.
The controversial bill proposes to make the purchase of souvenirs in Israel a criminal act, punishable by a maximum of five years in jail and a $310,000 fine.
Fianna Fáil joined the largest opposition party, Sinn Féin, and others in passing what is officially called the Control of Economic Activity (Occupied Territories) Act of 2018. Although it does not mention Israel, or even “Palestine,” by name, its sponsor, Senator Frances Black (Independent), has openly noted that its wording was carefully formulated so that it would only apply to the Jewish state.
Fine Gael opposes the passage of the bill on the basis of advice from the attorney general that trade is regulated under EU law and Ireland cannot introduce a unilateral ban on goods imported from Israel.

Nineteen-year-old Linoy Ashram won her second medal at the World Championship of Rhythmic Gymnastics in the individual all-around competition on Friday. She came in second place to Russian Dina Averina in Bulgaria, after taking silver in the individual competition for hoops and bronze in the ribbon event earlier in the week.
Last year at the Worlds, she took bronze in the all-around, a mere month after suffering a serious knee injury. She also collected a bronze at the time in the individual ribbon event.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called Ashram Saturday night to wish her well.
“Linoy, congratulations! This is an outstanding achievement. You have made all of us proud of you,” he told her. “You do this with amazing flexibility and great personal ability. This lifts all of our national pride. May you have great success. … Congratulations to you.”

Opinion: Fresh American blood on Abbas’ hands

Opinion: Fresh American blood on Abbas’ handsPalestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas (AP/Majdi Mohammed,l)
Abbas’ relentless incitement against Israel and Jews has brought to the murder of Israeli-American Ari Fuld, whose blood, among that of many others, is all over the PA leader’s hands.
By: Bassam Tawil, The Gatestone Institute
In a speech before the PLO Executive Committee in Ramallah on September 15, Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas repeated the old libel that Israel was planning to establish special Jewish prayer zones inside the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Abbas claimed that Israel was seeking to copy the example of the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron, where Jews and Muslims pray in different sections.
Abbas did not say what his lie was based on. He also did provide any evidence of Israel’s ostensible plot against the Al-Aqsa Mosque. He said, nevertheless, that the Palestinians, together with Jordan, were planning to bring this issue before the International Criminal Court and the International Court of Justice.
Abbas’s allegation was quickly picked up by several media outlets in the Arab world, the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The headlines that appeared on websites affiliated with Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad, the second largest terrorist group in the Gaza Strip, claimed that Israel is planning to permit Jews to pray inside the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Needless to say, there is no Israeli plan to allow Jews to pray inside the Al-Aqsa Mosque. However, in the past few years Jews, like all other non-Muslims, have been allowed to resume their perfectly legal visits to the Temple Mount. Thousands of Jews have toured the holy site under police protection, despite provocations and violent attacks by Muslims. It is worth noting that any kind of prayer of “religious displays” by Jews or Christians anywhere on the Temple Mount are completely forbidden by the Israel Police

Analysis: What drives Gaza’s weekly ‘March of Return’?

Analysis: What drives Gaza’s weekly ‘March of Return’?Palestinian rioters on the Gaza border. (AP/Adel Hana)
Hamas chief Yahya Sinwar admits Gaza’s weekly March of Return was staged to divert pressure to Israel. Why is Hamas feeling the heat?
By: Daniel Krygier, World Israel News
The weekly “March of Return” protests on the Gaza-Israel border have largely been blamed on Israel and the move of the US embassy to Israel’s capital, Jerusalem. However, as is frequently the case with Gaza, there is more than meets the eye.
Hamas terror chief Yahiya Sinwar recently admitted that the violent border clashes were staged to divert pressure to Israel.
Addressing a Hamas conference in Gaza, Sinwar said, “After the reconciliation efforts (between Hamas and Fatah) reached an impasse, a number of factions planned to cause an internal explosion in the Gaza Strip, but the Marches of Return thwarted the plan.”
International media has ignored this candid admission by the Hamas leader.
What pressure did Hamas feel the need to divert to Israel? What are the deeper driving forces behind Gaza’s seemingly chronic state of crisis?

The division between Hamas-ruled Gaza and Fatah-ruled Ramallah have not only complicated prospects for Arab-Israeli peace negotiations. They have divided the Arab populations to the point where they today effectively constitute two different political entities.
There is no love lost between Hamas and Fatah. While most Gazans voted for Hamas in the 2006 election, years of rampant poverty and autocratic Islamist rule in Gaza have left most of the population in dire straits. Since most of the international aid goes to Fatah, reconciliation between Hamas and its Ramallah-based rival has been a priority for many Gaza residents.
However, Fatah has demanded that Hamas disarm and hand power over Gaza to Fatah. Unsurprisingly Hamas has refused to disarm and is no hurry to let go of its Islamist-ruled kingdom on the Mediterranean shore.

Trump and Pompeo condemned ex-Secretary of State John Kerry for carrying on talks with the Iranian regime in an attempt to salvage the 2015 nuclear agreement with the Islamic Republic.
By: AP
President Donald Trump late Thursday accused John Kerry of holding “illegal meetings with the very hostile Iranian regime, which can only serve to undercut our great work to the detriment of the American people.”
When reports of Kerry’s ex-officio contacts with Zarif first surfaced in May, Trump tweeted similar thoughts. “John Kerry can’t get over the fact that he had his chance and blew it! Stay away from negotiations John, you are hurting your country!” he said on May 8.
A day earlier, he tweeted: “The United States does not need John Kerry’s possibly illegal Shadow Diplomacy on the very badly negotiated Iran Deal. He was the one that created this MESS in the first place!

Trump senior adviser Jared Kushner defended the administration’s recent moves, which he claims could pave the way to a lasting solution to the Israel-Palestinian conflict.
By: World Israel News Staff
Jared Kushner, who serves as a senior adviser to US President Donald Trump, spoke with the New York Times on the 25th anniversary of the conclusion of the Oslo peace accords. While the agreements were intended to facilitate a lasting peace between Israel and the Palestinians, critics of the agreement point to the Palestinians’ increased use of terror attacks and intensifying hostility in the ensuing decades as proof of the Oslo accords’ ultimate failure.
In his comments to the Times, Kushner addressed Trump’s recent cuts to Palestinian funding, which eliminated hundreds of millions of dollars in aid and threaten to shutter the Palestinians’ dedicated United Nations agency, UNRWA. Among the US administration’s cuts were $200 million in Palestinian aid, over $300 million to UNRWA, and another $25 million for health care in Arab sections of Jerusalem.

An overwhelming majority of British Jews believe the Labour Party is anti-Semitic and that its leader, Jeremy Corbyn, is an anti-Semite, according to a new poll.
By: Benjamin Kerstein, The Algemeiner
A huge majority — 85.9% — of British Jews believe Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn is an antisemite, a poll conducted by The Jewish Chronicle revealed.
This marked a massive rise from the previous such survey, in which only 39% of Jews believed Corbyn was antisemitic.
British Jews also expressed an extremely low opinion of the Labour Party in general. The poll showed that 85.6% believed Labour suffered from “very high” levels of antisemitism.
Corbyn and his party have been beset with a series of high-profile antisemitism scandals for several years, which has resulted in the resignation and suspension of several prominent officials. Corbyn himself was recently caught on video saying that “Zionists” did not understand “English irony” despite “having lived in this country for a very long time.”

A bipartisan bill that would cement U.S. military aid to Israel into law passed a major hurdle on Wednesday night.
The U.S. House of Representative approved the measure, known as the U.S.-Israel Security Assistance Authorization Act of 2018, several weeks after it passed the Senate. It will now head back to the Senate for approval, after which it could be submitted to President Donald Trump to be signed into law.
Under the proposed legislation, the $38 billion in military aid over 10 years spelled out under the 2016 Memorandum of Understanding would be funded through a special mechanism that would be separate from the annual budget.

Israel to replace national police chief amid Netanyahu probesIsraeli Chief of Police Roni Alsheikh and PM Netanyahu (Miriam Alster/Flash90)
After an announcement that Israel’s police chief will be replaced, opposition leaders claimed the move is a reaction to the ongoing corruption probe of the prime minister.
By: AP and World Israel News Staff
Israel’s public security minister says he will replace the country’s police chief, Roni Alsheikh, at the end of his term, which is set to expire this year.
The change comes in the midst of police investigations into corruption by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan announced possible replacements for Alsheikh as national police chief on Thursday. He cited “differences of opinion” with Alsheikh as a reason for not extending his term an additional year.
It wasn’t clear how, if at all, Alsheikh’s departure might affect investigations of Netanyahu.
Alsheikh has overseen corruption probes related to the prime minister during his three-year term. Netanyahu denies any wrongdoing, calling the investigations a “witch hunt.”

As the Jewish state approaches the 45th anniversary of the Yom Kippur War, the prime minister reflected on the lessons learned from that costly conflict.
By: TPS
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has vowed that Israel would never repeat the mistake it made in 1973 by not preempting an enemy attack.
He made the remarks on Sunday, during his weekly cabinet meeting, as the country marks the 45th anniversary of the Yom Kippur War.
“We absorbed a bloody attack that cost us thousands of victims,” Netanyahu said in his address. “We must do everything to prevent war. Its victims … are a gaping wound in the heart of the nation. However, if war is forced upon us, we must do everything to win with minimal losses.”
Netanyahu explained that 45 years ago, the country’s intelligence erred with regard to “a mistaken assessment regarding the [belligerent] intentions of Egypt and Syria” to go to war.
“When these intentions became clear beyond all doubt, and when the danger was on our very doorstep, the political leadership made a grievous mistake by not allowing a preemptive strike. We will never repeat this mistake,” the prime minister emphasized.

By: AP and World Israel News Staff
An American law professor was detained by Israeli police for trying to block Israeli troops in an illegal Bedouin hamlet slated for demolition, his Israeli lawyer said Saturday.
Frank Romano, 66, is being held at a lockup in Jerusalem and is to appear before an Israeli military court Monday, said attorney Gaby Lasky, a star extreme-left-wing lawyer. She said she is trying to get a hearing sooner, before a civil court.
Romano, who reportedly also has French citizenship, was detained Friday in the village of Khan al-Ahmar, along with two Palestinian activists. Romano stood in front of heavy equipment being used to clear barriers that had been set up to slow the demolition, witnesses said.
Israeli police said three people were detained for causing disturbances.
Romano was initially taken to a police station where he briefly met with activists from an Israeli-Palestinian group, Combatants for Peace. Nahoum Oltchik, a member of the group, said Romano told him he began a hunger strike and would refrain from eating until Israel had halts plans to raze Khan al-Ahmar, a hamlet of 180 Bedouin deemed illegal by Israel’s High Court of Justice.

Officials announced Friday that the Belgian government would suspend funding for Palestinian schools after two more were named after terrorists.
By: World Israel News Staff
The Belgian Ministry of Development Cooperation announced on Friday it was suspending its funding to the Palestinian Authority (PA) education system after the latter named two schools after terrorists.
In an apparent mockery of Belgium, the Palestinian educational system named two schools after “the Martyr Dalal Mughrabi” while attempting to circumvent Belgian protests against this policy.
Mughrabi led the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history, known as the Coastal Road massacre in 1978, during which she and other Fatah terrorists hijacked a bus on Israel’s Coastal Highway, murdering 37 civilians, 12 of them children, and wounding over 70.
In September 2017, the Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) exposed the PA for naming a Belgian-funded school “The Martyr Dalal Mughrabi Elementary School.”
In October 2017, Belgium froze its funding for PA schools and demanded that the name be changed. In July, the name had still not been changed.
Last month, Belgium reiterated that it “unequivocally condemns the glorification of terrorist attacks” through PA schools.

The deal was reportedly carried out with American mediation and includes expert exchanges and the acquisition of advanced weapons systems. Israel denies the report.
By: World Israel News Staff
Saudi Arabia has acquired its first Iron Dome anti-rocket system from Israel as part of a recent rapprochement between the two countries, the Saudi newspaper Al-Khaleej Online reported Thursday.
According to the report, the deal was carried out with American mediation.
Diplomatic sources cited in the report claimed that the deal between Jerusalem and Riyadh included “expert exchanges” and the acquisition of advanced and sophisticated weapons systems similar to those carried out by the United Arab Emirates.
The report said that the first Iron Dome batteries will be deployed in December on the border between Saudi Arabia and Yemen, from where the Houthi rebels have launched missiles into the kingdom.
The paper’s correspondent in Jerusalem, Nader Safadi, reported that Israel initially refused to sell the advanced missile interceptor system to an Arab state for fear of harming its own security. However, the US has reportedly convinced Israel that the Saudis would pledge not to endanger Israel or its allies.
Israeli security officials denied the report.

IDF forces on Thursday safety detonated a bomb they had exposed earlier in the week on the border fence in the southern Gaza Strip, preventing a serious attack.
“The terror squad that planted the bomb had plans to attack IDF soldiers and disrupt the activity of the forces operating in the area,” the IDF said in a statement.
According to the IDF, the bomb was placed under the cover of the weekly riots on Friday.
“The placing of the explosive charge by the terrorist cell in the context of the violent disturbances is further evidence that the Hamas terrorist organization is working to preserve the confrontation in the area of the fence and to harm IDF soldiers, while using civilians in the Gaza Strip as human shields and as cover for terrorist activity,” an IDF spokesperson stated.

An Israeli Cabinet minister says if Iran chooses to continue pursuing a nuclear program it will face a “military” answer.
Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz was responding Wednesday to the Iranian nuclear chief’s warning that the Islamic Republic’s program stands ready to build advanced centrifuges and further enrich uranium.
In an exclusive interview with The Associated Press, Ali Akbar Salehi says Iran won’t be deterred by President Donald Trump’s sanctions and withdrawal from the global nuclear deal.
Salehi stressed that Iran would be guided by “prudence and wisdom” when weighing whether to abandon the deal if European nations fail to protect it from Trump, dismissing out of hand the idea of caving to American demands to renegotiate the accord.

By: AP and World Israel News Staff
Israeli forces on Thursday dismantled five corrugated metal shacks that had been set up by Palestinian activists protesting the anticipated razing of a nearby illegal Bedouin hamlet.
Protest leader Abdullah Abu Rahmeh said about 200 soldiers converged on the area of the Khan al-Ahmar encampment before dawn, dismantled the shacks and loaded the parts onto trucks. The encampment itself was not touched. Protesters chanted “Out, out, terrorist army,” as the trucks and soldiers left after daybreak.
There were no violent clashes, despite threats by residents.
Israel’s Supreme Court rejected an appeal last week, paving the way for Khan al-Ahmar’s potential demolition. Israel says Khan al-Ahmar was illegally built and in an unsafe location near a major highway. It has offered to resettle the residents 12 kilometers (7 miles) away under what it says are improved conditions — with connections to water, electricity and sewage treatment they currently don’t have. The residents have rejected all alternatives offered to them.

Imagine President Trump being invited to speak at the funeral of a white singer who he admired (say, Ted Nugent, if he were to pass) and seeing that David Duke was on stage in a place of honor. Well, former President Clinton gave a speech in the presence of Louis Farrakhan at the funeral for Aretha Franklin. Hillary Clinton was sitting off to the side but did not speak.
Why would President Clinton, a good man and a friend of the Jewish people, do this? There are several possible answers. First, he was taken by surprise at Farrakhan’s presence and didn’t want to do anything to disrupt the service. But the “shoe on the other foot” question remains: Would he have acted similarly if it had been Duke rather than Farrakhan?

Could a Palestinian-Jordanian confederation bring decades of unrest to an end?
By: Israel Kasnet, JNS.org
Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas recently told a group of Israeli activists that the Trump administration proposed a confederation between the Palestinians and Jordan. For years, the idea of Jordan serving as a state for the Palestinians has been tossed around, with some prominent Jordanians and Palestinians themselves supporting the idea.
Former Jordanian Prime Minister Zayd ar-Rifa’i did when he said in 1975 that “Jordan is Palestine.” King Hussein did when he asserted in 1981 that “Jordan is Palestine and Palestine is Jordan.”
Even Abbas himself did.
According to a 2012 article by Daoud Kattab in The Atlantic, “Al-Quds Al-Arabi reported that Abbas informed several PLO leaders ‘to be prepared for a new confederation project with Jordan and other parties in the international community,’ and that his office has already issued reports that evaluate ‘the best strategies to lead possible negotiations with Jordan’ towards ‘reviving the confederation.’”
Even after King Hussein decided to relinquish Jordan and Samaria in 1988 and recognize the PLO as the sole entity responsible for the Palestinian population there, the matter remained under discussion.

The heir of a French Jew persecuted during the Holocaust was awarded a painting looted by the Nazis.
By: AP and World Israel News Staff
After almost eight decades, the granddaughter of a Jewish art collector whose paintings were stolen by the Nazis had a family reunion Wednesday with one of the works, an impressionist piece by Pierre-Auguste Renoir.
Sylvie Sulitzer saw “Two Women in a Garden” for the first time at New York’s Museum of Jewish Heritage after unveiling it at a ceremony that included law enforcement officials representing the offices that helped get the painting back to her. She is her grandparents’ only living descendant.
“I’m very thankful to be able to show my beloved family, wherever they are, that after what they’ve been through, there is justice,” Sulitzer said tearfully.
The reunion, though, will probably be short-lived. She will likely auction off the painting to pay back compensation she had received for missing artwork.

Netanyahu hails US decision to shutter PLO headquarters in D.C.
 September 12, 2018
On Tuesday evening, Netanyahu praised the US’ decision to close the PLO mission in Washington.
By: Benjamin Kerstein, The Algemeiner
“The US made the right decision regarding the PLO mission in Washington,” said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday, according to Israel’s Channel Two.
“Israel supports the American actions that are intended to make it clear to the Palestinians that the refusal to negotiate and the attempts to attack Israel in international forums will not advance peace.”
The US announced that it would close the mission on Monday, giving the staff several months to vacate. The State Department said in a statement that the move was directly connected to the Palestinian Authority’s refusal to negotiate with Israel or to consider any peace plan put forward by the Trump administration.
“We have permitted the PLO office to conduct operations that support the objective of achieving a lasting, comprehensive peace between Israelis and the Palestinians since the expiration of a previous waiver in November 2017,” said the statement.
“However, the PLO has not taken steps to advance the start of direct and meaningful negotiations with Israel. To the contrary, PLO leadership has condemned a US peace plan they have not yet seen and refused to engage with the US government with respect to peace efforts and otherwise.”
“As such, and reflecting Congressional concerns, the Administration has decided that the PLO office in Washington will close at this point,” the statement added.

Iran nuclear chief threatens Israel with ‘consequences’

Iran nuclear chief threatens Israel with ‘consequences’Iran's nuclear chief Ali Akbar Salehi (AP/Vahid Salemi)
 Print  Email  12 Comments
“I hope they will not commit a similar mistake again because the consequences would be, I think, harsh,” Salehi warned Israel regarding its plans to sabotage the Iran nuclear program. 
By: AP and World Israel News Staff
Iran’s nuclear chief said Tuesday he hopes Tehran’s atomic deal with world powers will survive President Donald Trump withdrawing the US from it. He also threatened that the Islamic Republic’s program stands ready to build advanced centrifuges and further enrich uranium.
In an exclusive interview with The Associated Press, Ali Akbar Salehi stressed that Iran would be guided by “prudence and wisdom” when weighing whether to abandon the deal if European nations fail to protect it from Trump.
The US withdrawal from the deal already has badly shaken Iran’s anemic economy, crashing its currency, the rial. That likely will be compounded by US sanctions coming in November that threaten Iran’s oil exports, a major source of government funding.
Salehi dismissed out of hand the idea of caving to American demands to renegotiate the accord.
“Yes, we have our problems. Yes, the sanctions have caused some problems for us. But if a nation decides to enjoy political independence, it will have to pay the price,” Salehi said. “If Iran decided today to go back to what it was before, the lackey of the United States,” the situation would be different.
A string of bombings, blamed on Israel, targeted a number of scientists beginning in 2010 at the height of Western concerns over Iran’s program. Israel never claimed responsibility for the attacks, though Israeli officials have boasted in the past about the reach of the country’s intelligence services.

Residents of illegal Bedouin outpost threaten violent struggle against evacuation
Khan al-Ahmar residents threatened to respond with violence to any attempt to remove them from their illegally built hamlet.  
By: World Israel News Staff
Residents of the illegal Bedouin hamlet of Khan al Ahmar, located east of Jerusalem, are threatening to violently resist a court order to evacuate the area.
Salem Abu Dabuk, a resident, told IDF Radio on Wednesday that they “will not leave and sit quietly. They [Israel] want to move us to an area which is not suitable for us.”
He also dismissed allegations that the Palestinian Authority (PA) was pressuring the residents to reject any court-arbitrated settlement in order generate more strife.
“We asked the Palestinian Authority to be with us in this battle after the High Court of Justice turned to politics,” he claimed, charging the court of not rendering justice.
The PA is heavily embroiled in the affair and announced Tuesday a new push against Israel at the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague over the slated demolition of the village.
The submission “included a focus on the war crimes facing Khan al-Ahmar, specifically the crimes of forcible displacement, ethnic cleansing and the destruction of civilian property,” said chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat.

Al-Qaeda leader: Jerusalem embassy move proves US is Muslims’ enemy

To mark the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, a terror group leader demanded renewed holy war against America’s presence across the globe.
By: AP and World Israel News Staff
Marking the 17th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, the leader of al-Qaeda has called on Muslims to wage war against the United States throughout the world.
In a 30-minute speech released Tuesday, Ayman al-Zawahri went to great lengths to portray the United States as a religious enemy of Muslims, using Washington’s transfer of its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem as evidence of that enmity.
The Washington-based SITE group, which monitors media material by militants across the world, released an English transcript of the speech.
“America (is) the number one enemy of Muslims … despite of its professed secularism,” al-Zawahri said in the video. He listed 14 directives to fight the United States, including an appeal for Muslim unity and jihadists close ranks.

Terror-supporting family says Israel bars them from travel, will appeal at court
 September 12, 2018
“There is no legal prohibition, and clearly there is pressure from the Israeli security forces, so we will ask to remove this injustice,” Bassem Tamimi said of the alleged ban.
By: World Israel News Staff
Members of Ahed Tamimi‘s family claim that Israel is barring their exit from the country, the Ha’aretz daily reported Saturday.
According to the family, they were notified by the Palestinian District Coordination and Liaison Administration of the ban.
The report quotes an Israeli security source who confirmed the family’s claim, but the Shin Bet (Israel’s Security Agency) stated that Tamimi, her parents and one of her brothers are barred from entering Israeli-administered territory only.
Tamimi was released in July from an Israeli prison after serving eight months for assaulting IDF soldiers and for incitement to terrorism.
Bassem Tamimi, Ahed’s father, told Ha’aretz that the family had been invited by human rights organizations for meetings in Europe. The flight was planned for Friday, but then they were allegedly notified of the ban.
“This is a pre-planned round of meetings for Belgium, France, and Spain for about 20 days, and the whole family has been invited,” Bassem said.

For the first time in years, Israel was involved in the decision-making process in a case at the International Court of Justice that did not involve a legal issue related to the Jewish state.
By: World Israel News Staff
This week, Israel took part in a debate at the International Court of Justice in The Hague (ICJ) for the first time in over 50 years that did not place the Jewish state at the center of the conflict.
Specifically, Israel participated in oral proceedings related to an Indian ocean archipelago, the rights to which are disputed by the United Kingdom and Mauritius. Sovereignty over the islands in question, known as the Chagos Archipelago, remains at the heart of the dispute.
Israeli officials from the foreign and justice ministries concurred with the UK’s position that the court lacks jurisdiction to rule on the matter, seeking to pursuade the tribunal to issue an advisory opinion to that effect. While the ICJ’s advisory opinions are not binding on the parties, their legal importance is generally recognized and respected by the international community.

Opinion: European hypocrisy rears its ugly head
Despite their claims to be Israel’s greatest friends, EU member states are standing together to defend Palestinian interests and ignoring anti-Semitic propaganda.
By: Eldad Beck, JNS.org
The first day of the 5779th year of the Hebrew calendar will be remembered as a historic day for EU hypocrisy: On that day, EU member states, including those that claim they are Israel’s greatest friends, decided to stand with European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini and release a statement that completely contradicts the supposed principles of the EU.
By calling on the Israeli government not to act in the spirit of the High Court of Justice’s ruling and evacuate and demolish the illegal Bedouin village of Khan al-Ahmar, Germany, France, Italy, Spain and Britain have violated official EU foreign policy, which supports the achievement of peace on the basis of the 1993 Oslo Accords and recognizes Israel as a sovereign state.
According to the Oslo Accords, Israel is responsible for Area C until other diplomatic agreements are reached on the matter. The EU has systematically acted in violation of international law and the Oslo Accords and without coordinating with Israel to establish and encourage illegal Bedouin settlements.

By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
A self-described Israeli military adviser to a force fighting pro-Russian separatists in the eastern part of the Ukraine was found dead Monday of a gunshot wound to the head, possibly self-inflicted.
A handgun was found near Bar Bonen’s body in an apartment in Kiev and the initial conclusion of the police is that the death was a suicide, although they say the investigation has not yet been completed.
To bolster the theory, a goodbye letter was posted on Bonen’s Facebook page, which said in part, “I am a broken soul, and I didn’t open it very much to most of you. I can no longer tolerate this internal pain…”

US cuts another $25 million in Palestinian aid; PA accuses Trump of ‘bad faith’

The Trump administration is redirecting another $25 million in aid that was slated for Palestinian coffers to “high-priority projects elsewhere.”
B: World Israel News Staff
On Saturday, the Trump administration announced it is “reprogramming” $25 million in aid that had been earmarked for hospitals in Arab sections of Jerusalem. The funding will instead be directed to “high-priority projects elsewhere,” a move that follows the administration’s decision to stop funding the Palestinians’ dedicated United Nations agency, UNRWA.
The steps are the product of an expansive review of US assistance to the Palestinian Authority (PA), which has historically cost the Americans hundreds of millions of dollars a year. President Trump ordered the review to make sure aid complied with US national interest mandates.
The Palestinians labelled the latest aid cut “an act of political blackmail,” a common response from the PA when conditions are attached to international aid.
In addition to slashing more than $300 million in aid to UNRWA last week, the State Department announced a cut of over $200 million in bilateral aid to the Palestinians in late August.
PA lead negotiator Saeb Erekat responded to the latest cuts by accusing the US of operating in “bad faith” in a manner that disincentivizes moderate forces in the Middle East and encourages radicals instead.

Mob attacks kosher restaurant, yells ‘Get out of Germany, Jewish pigs’Schalom kosher restaurant in Chemnitz, Germany. (Youtube/Screenshot) 
A mob attacked a kosher restaurant in Germany, yelling “Get out of Germany, Jewish pigs.”
About a dozen assailants clad in black hurled rocks, bottles and a metal pipe at the Schalom kosher restaurant in Chemnitz, Germany, in late August, Die Welt and the Freie Presse reported Saturday.
The owner, Uwe Dzieballa, was injured in the shoulder, the reports said.
According to AFP, police in Saxony confirmed to Die Welt that they had received a complaint of the attack on the “Schalom” restaurant on the sidelines of anti-immigration demonstrations in response to the murder of a German man, allegedly by asylum seekers.
The full details of the attack, which was reported only two weeks after it happened, have not yet been revealed, although it appears to be one of the harshest anti-Semitic attacks perpetrated by the German far-right in many years, according to Ha’aretz.

By: AP
The presidents of Iran, Russia and Turkey met in a high stakes summit in Tehran on Friday to discuss the future of Syria as a bloody military operation looms in the last rebel-held area of the war-ravaged nation, each laying out terms and issues on the battlefield most critical to their own concerns.
Turkey’s president appealed for a cease-fire in Syria’s Idlib, saying a government offensive in the northwestern province would be a national security threat to his country and unleash a humanitarian catastrophe.

In a fresh round of bombings and air raids, Russian and Syrian planes launched attacks that killed 4 in Syria’s rebel-held Idlib province.
By: AP
Syrian government and Russian warplanes on Saturday targeted the southern edge of Idlib province in what activists described as the most intense airstrikes in weeks, ratcheting up military pressure on the densely populated rebel-held bastion.
More than 60 air raids killed at least four civilians in southern Idlib, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and rescue workers. The bombings also included indiscriminate barrel bombs, dropped from choppers, invariably blamed on the government.
The bombings, including shelling from government areas, came a day after Iran and Russia backed a military campaign in the rebel-held area despite Turkey’s pleas for a cease-fire. Turkey has troops and 12 observation points that circle Idlib.
State-run Al-Ikhbariya TV said the government was retaliating against overnight shelling from rebel-held areas on a government-held town in Hama province, south of Idlib. The shelling late Friday in Mhradah killed nine civilians, according to state media. The state news agency SANA said government forces have shelled “terrorist” posts in northern Hama.

Israel does not object to diplomatic and commercial ties between Syria and Iran, but it will never allow Iran to turn Syria into a forward military base, Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Thursday in interview with Radio Farda.
Speaking to Iranian journalist Mehrdad Mirdamadi, Liberman told the Persian language network, which broadcasts to Iran from the Czech Republic, that Israel is not against “economic, diplomatic or other cooperation” between Syria and Iran, but it is completely opposed to Tehran establishing a “military presence and is opposed to its efforts to undermine the stability of the entire Middle East, the stability of our entire region.”
Liberman said that Tehran’s aggression in the region had led Arab nations to realize that Iran’s extremist regime was their enemy and not Israel.

Police are investigating signs with the message “Israel is a racist endeavour” that were posted on bus stops around London.
By: Word Israel News Staff
The police in London launched an investigation following the appearance of signs on the city’s bus stops reading “Israel is a racist endeavour.”
The signs are believed to be in protest of the British Labour Party’s decision on Tuesday to accept the official definition of anti-Semitism formulated by the International Holocaust Remembrance Association (IHRA).
The UK’s Campaign Against Antisemitism (CAA) watchdog noted that the poster offensive “explicitly mocks and breaches the International Definition of Antisemitism which states that ‘Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination (e.g. by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavour)’ is anti-Semitic.”
The large signs have appeared in at least four locations, including bus stops in Westminster, Waterloo and Bloomsbury, the UK’s Evening Standard reported Wednesday. One was posted opposite Parliament.
Transport for London (TfL) said the sign were “absolutely not authorized.”

Chad and Israel have been quietly discussing the renewal of diplomatic relations for three months, according to a report Wednesday on Channel 10 News.
The ball started rolling in May, said the report, when Israel’s UNESCO ambassador, Carmel Shama-Hacohen received a visit from a Rabbi Avraham Moyal and a French-Jewish businessman, Philip Solomon. They told him that President Idriss Deby wanted to start talks on the diplomatic front, and the Foreign Ministry told Shama-Cohen to go ahead.
Perhaps indicating the seriousness with which the president is taking the issue, the report added that Deby would like to send his son in the near future as his personal emissary to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to discuss the possibilities.

By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
The Gazan Ministry of Interior announced Wednesday that Hamas commander Abdel Rahim Abbas was killed in an “accidental explosion” in the bomb disposal unit’s headquarters.
It said the blast was caused by “the ignition of explosives during inspection,” in the Passports Building at the Department of Explosives Engineering west of Gaza City and that the ensuing fire was put out by police and civil defense units that arrived on the scene.
The Gazan Ministry of Health added that two other people were treated at the Al-Shifa hospital for minor injuries due to the accident.
The Izz al-Din Al-Qassam Brigades put out a statement praising the 42-year-old lieutenant colonel as a “martyr” who had a life of “a great and honorable jihad.” The terrorist group lauded Abbas as a diligent field commander who trained Hamas security forces well and saw the “fruit” of his labor in the “digging of tunnels of pride and dignity to the homeland,” referring to the terror tunnels Hamas digs into Israel for the purposes of committing terror attacks in Jewish communities.

How realistic is a peace proposal based on a Jordanian-Palestinian-Israeli confederation? What does it say about the Palestinian leader’s goal?
By: Daniel Krygier, World Israel News
Palestinian Authority (PA) leader Mahmoud Abbas recently claimed that President Donald Trump had offered him a US peace plan based on a confederation with Jordan. If true, it would hardly be the first time this plan had been proposed over the decades.
How realistic is such a proposal, and why has it resurfaced again? What does it mean for Israel and her neighbors?
Unsurprisingly, Jordan firmly rejected Trump’s confederation peace plan. The majority of Jordan’s population consists of Palestinian Arabs from Judea and Samaria and their descendants.
By contrast, the Hashemite royal family of Jordan hails from Saudi Arabia.
Jordan’s minority Hashemite rulers have been threatened by PA for many years. In 1970, the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), the predecessor to the PA as the prime Palestinian political institution, tried to topple Jordan’s King Hussein. This resulted in an open military conflict between Jordan and the PLO, which ended with PLO being expelled from Jordan.

As the Hezbollah terror group continues to stockpile rockets in Lebanon and amass forces under the auspices of its benefactor, Iran, Israel publicly unveiled this week a new security structure to protect against threats from the north.
While Israel maintains that the concrete barrier, which measures nine meters tall and stretches across 11 kilometers of the border, complies with relevant laws and reflects the boundaries established by the international armistice line, Lebanon has protested the wall, claiming the structure violates its sovereignty.

By: World Israel News Staff
Incoming and outgoing flights in Israel will be affected by the massive Russian military maneuvers off the Syrian coast, Israel’s Airports Authority cautioned Tuesday.
The Airports Authority informed airlines that due to a Russian military exercise carried out in the eastern part of the Mediterranean basin, there may be changes in the flight routes in the Cyprus area that could affect international flight routes to and from Ben-Gurion International Airport, causing delays in landings and takeoffs, Ynet reported.
Syrian forces have been preparing for an onslaught on the Idlib province in the country, the last rebel stronghold, while the Russian military has been amassing unprecedented forces off the Syrian coast that would lend support to Assad.
The Russian Defense Ministry announced last week that it deployed 25 ships, including a missile cruiser, and 30 jets for the maneuvers.

By: World Israel News Staff
Minister of Education Naftali Bennett assailed members of the Joint Arab List who penned an op-ed voicing support for UK Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.
Corbyn, who continues to censure Israel and take the Palestinian side to the point of paying tribute to terrorists, is accused of anti-Semitism by, among others, senior Israeli politicians and former UK Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks.
On Sunday, the UK’s Guardian published a letter signed by four Arab members of the Israeli parliament expressing support for the embattled leader of the British Labour Party, who has been contending with a series of exposures of his ties with Palestinian terrorists.
“There is no greater hypocrisy than that of Tibi, Zahalka and their supporters,” Bennett said in a statement released Tuesday, referring to MKs Ahmad Tibi and Jamal Zahalka, who signed the letter.

Following reports that Abbas supports a tripartite Israeli-Palestinian-Jordanian “confederation”, senior Israeli diplomats commented that the Jewish state does not support such a proposal.
By: World Israel News Staff
Senior Israeli diplomats communicated the nation’s position on a plan that Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas claimed the US floated, which would create a Palestinian confederation with Jordan and possibly Israel.
According to the Jerusalem Post, the Israeli diplomats cited stated that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continues to support a directly negotiated agreement with the Palestinians that provides them with a demilitarized entity, referred to at times as a “state minus,” with the Jewish state continuing to oversee security west of the Jordan River.
Abbas raised the confederation proposal during a meeting with leftist activists from the Peace Now organization and Israeli lawmakers in Ramallah on Sunday, claiming that the Trump administration floated the idea during an August 2017 visit by Trump senior adviser Jared Kushner and US special envoy Jason Greenblatt.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, who once compared himself favorably to Adolf Hitler, paid a solemn visit to Israel’s national Holocaust memorial on Monday, branding the Nazi leader “insane” as he lamented the genocide of 6 million Jews.
The comments marked a dramatic turnaround for Duterte, who just two years ago had compared his anti-drug campaign to the Holocaust and said he would be “happy to slaughter” 3 million addicts. He later apologized.
Duterte, known for his profane outbursts and accused of committing widespread human rights abuses, spoke quietly and respectfully during his stop at the Yad Vashem memorial. He said the Holocaust should never be repeated and that “despots” have no place in the modern world.
“I could not imagine a country obeying an insane leader, and I could not ever fathom the spectacle of the human being going into a killing spree, murdering old men, women and children. I hope this will not happen again,” he said.

Assad has vowed to defeat the opposition in its last refuge if the rebels do not surrender to government rule and that Syria and Iran held “similar views.” 
Iran’s foreign minister said at the start of a visit to Damascus on Monday that “terrorists must be purged” from Syria’s Idlib and the entire northwestern province returned to government control.
Mohammad Javad Zarif’s comments in Damascus were reported by Iran’s semi-official Fars news agency and came as Syrian forces and their allies are preparing for an assault on Idlib, the last opposition stronghold in the country.
“Syria’s territorial integrity should be safeguarded and all tribes and groups, as one society, should start the reconstruction process, and the refugees should return to their homes,” Zarif said.

Israel shut down the Erez Crossing into the Gaza Strip on Wednesday after a Palestinian mob violently rioted in the area and destroyed Israeli property the day before. The crossing will be closed until the repairs are completed.
On Tuesday, hundreds of Palestinian rioters on the Gaza side of the crossing threw rocks towards the Israeli side, damaging the crossing area.
“Every day, approximately 1,000 Gazans enter Israel through Erez Crossing to work, study or pray. Yesterday, hundreds of Gazan rioters damaged this same crossing, resulting in its closure for repairs,” the IDF stated.

Vassar College acts against students calling to ‘slap a Zionist’

Vassar College acts against students calling to ‘slap a Zionist’Vassar College (Facebook)
University authorities have put a stop to the distribution of a “Disorientation Guide” for new students advocating BDS and “slapping a Zionist.”
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Administrators at Vassar College, a residential liberal arts college in Poughkeepsie, New York, acted swiftly Friday to stop the further distribution of a self-proclaimed “Disorientation Guide.”
Sent to some 400 incoming students by a group of underclassmen, it contained anti-Semitic content as well as advocating disruptive and borderline legal behavior on campus.
Amanita Duga-Carroll, Vassar Vice President for Communications, said in a statement Monday that after learning of the email, which “was linked to a document on Google that is provocative of violence and anti-Semitism” and targeted many groups, including “Zionists,” the university immediately condemned it and launched an investigation to find those behind it.
“By Saturday morning,” she noted, “we had identified the students believed to be responsible for its creation and distribution and began the student conduct process. We have also worked to stop its distribution on our campus through electronic and print means.”
Among the list of guide-recommended activities to “create a culture of dissonance” – including vandalism of campus property, harassing the college president and hosting a Molotov cocktail-making workshop – was also the suggestion to “slap a Zionist.” In this context, the guide explicitly referred to Ahed Tamimi, a Palestinian teenager who was recently released after several months in prison for kicking and hitting IDF soldiers, as an example to be followed.

UK Labour Party adopts anti-Semitism definition with ‘appalling’ caveat

The UK’s Labour Party altered its controversial anti-Semitism definition, while leaving a significant caveat that raised red flags in the UK’s Jewish community.
By: AP and World Israel News Staff
Britain’s main opposition Labour Party on Tuesday appeared to adopt an internationally recognized definition of anti-Semitism, a move aimed at defusing a crisis that has seen serious accusations of Jew-hatred launched at party members, including its leader Jeremy Corbyn.
After a meeting lasting several hours, Labour’s National Executive Committee backed a definition approved by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance, but added what it described as “a statement which ensures this will not in any way undermine freedom of expression on Israel or the rights of Palestinians.”
Among the critics of the party’s failure to adopt the international definition without alterations was Labour Friends of Israel, whose director Jennifer Gerber issued a statement declaring, “It is appalling that the Labour party has once again ignored the view clearly and repeatedly stated by the Jewish community: that it should adopt the full IHRA definition without additions, omissions or caveats.”
“A ‘freedom of expression on Israel’ clause is unnecessary and totally undermines the other examples the party has supposedly just adopted. Labour appears determined to provide a safe space for anti-Semites. This decision is a sad reflection on Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership of the party and the culture it has instilled,” Gerber explained.
Earlier this year, the party adopted an even more limited definition, omitting some of the alliance’s language around criticism of Israel. The alliance’s definition, for example, says it is anti-Semitic to compare contemporary Israeli policies to the policies of the Nazis. The original Labour definition left that out, but it has now been included.
Labour’s reluctance to adopt the entire definition renewed claims that the left-of-center party has become hostile to Jews under leader Jeremy Corbyn, whose political prospects have recently been damaged by a string of revelations regarding his virulently anti-Israel positions and his participation in events such as a memorial honoring terrorists involved in the Munich massacre.
Religious leaders and certain Labour members accuse Corbyn of failing to stamp out anti-Jewish prejudice.

Iran’s currency falls to lowest rate amid collapse of nuclear deal

Iran’s currency falls to lowest rate amid collapse of nuclear deal(Shutterstock)
Months of uncertainty surrounding the sanctions have already further hurt Iran’s economy and the country’s rial currency continues to tank.
By: AP and World Israel News Staff
The Iranian rial has fallen to its lowest rate on record, with the currency now trading at over 150,000 to the US dollar.
Since Saturday, the start of the Iranian working week, the rial has dropped over a quarter of its value.
On Wednesday, the end of the working week, currency exchange shops in Tehran posted rates of over 150,000 rials to $1.
There was no immediate acknowledgement of the drop on state media.
Months of uncertainty surrounding the sanctions have already further hurt Iran’s economy. The country’s rial currency has tanked, and the downturn has sparked protests across the nation.
The collapse of Iran’s currency has been fanned by President Donald Trump’s decision to pull America out of the nuclear deal with world powers in May.
The first set of US sanctions against Iran that had been eased under the controversial nuclear accord went back into effect in August under an executive order signed by Trump, targeting financial transactions that involve US dollars, Iran’s automotive sector, the purchase of commercial planes and metals including gold.

British watchdog launches legal action against CPS over thwarted bid to prosecute anti-Semitic ‘Al-Quds Day’ march leader.
By: The Algemeiner
A British watchdog group has launched a judicial review proceedings against the UK’s Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) after it was blocked from privately prosecuting the leader of last year’s “Al-Quds Day” march in London.
At the June 2017 Iran-backed, pro-Hezbollah event, Nazim Ali allegedly made a number of vehemently anti-Semitic statements over a loudspeaker.
The UK-based Campaign Against Antisemitism (CAA) subsequently pursued legal action against Ali, but this effort, according to the CAA, was thwarted by the CPS, which took over the case and then dropped it.
