Some 200 people were killed and over 1000 affected in a suspected chemical attack near Damascus. The US said the “horrifying” attack “demands an immediate response” if true.
By: World Israel News Staff
Some 200 people were killed over the weekend in a suspected chemical attack in Douma, a city 10 km. northeast of Damascus, Syria. Over 1,000 were wounded.
The opposition-affiliated Syrian Civil Defense, also known as White Helmets, said that most of the fatalities were women and children.
Douma is the last rebel-held stronghold near Syria’s capital, controlled by Jaysh al-Islam (Army of Islam). The death toll was expected to rise as many people were in critical condition.
Raed al-Saleh, head of the White Helmets rescue group, told Al Jazeera that chlorine gas, as well as an unidentified but stronger gas, possibly sarin, were dropped on Douma.
“White Helmet volunteers are trying to help the people, but all what we can do is evacuate them to another areas by foot because most of the vehicles and centers went out of service,” al-Saleh said.
One member of White Helmets told Al Jazeera that an entire family suffocated to death as they hid in their cellar, trying to seek shelter from air raids and barrel bombs.

Three Palestinian suspects breached the security fence along the Israel-Gaza border as violence continued throughout the day on Sunday.
Violence along the Israel-Gaza border continued Sunday afternoon as Hamas terrorists opened fire on IDF troops, forcing Israel to respond.
No injuries were reported on the Israeli side. It is unclear if there were any casualties among the Palestinians.
Also, three suspects breached the security fence before backtracking. The IDF fired at them in response.
The army said it was investigating the incident.

“The occupation and the siege are not an act of self-defense, but rather one of terrorism,” lawmaker Hanin Zoabi of the Arab Joint List told a UN press conference.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Flatly denying the Palestinian violence at the Gaza border protests over the last two weeks, Member of Knesset Hanin Zoabi of the Arab Joint List faction has called for an investigation of the IDF over its defense of southern communities against Hamas’s “March of Return.”
At a press conference Friday at the United Nations in New York, Zoabi claimed that Israeli soldiers who fired on Palestinian protesters storming the Gaza border fence that day and since the previous Friday were acting unlawfully.
“Israel is not defending itself as it is claiming,” she charged. “The occupation and the siege are not an act of self-defense, but rather one of terrorism.”
She called for the international community to demand an investigation into the Israeli army’s behavior. According to Zoabi, the protesters’ throwing of Molotov cocktails and rocks as well as armed men attempting to breach the security fence under cover of the smoke from burning tires was merely “a march of peace” and a “popular resistance of women and children.”
“Israel has turned from a racist country to a fascist one,” she asserted, calling on “millions of Palestinians to march on Jerusalem.”
However, this could never happen, Zoabi added, “because the Israelis would kill them.”
Although tens of thousands of Palestinians have gathered at the Gazan fence since a week ago Friday, and despite the many attempts to injure IDF troops protecting the border communities as well as to infiltrate into Israeli territory, fewer than 40 Gazans have been killed, as  non-lethal, riot-dispersals methods have been used as much as possible to contain the protests.
On Sunday, in reaction to Zoabi’s press conference, Likud MK Oren Hazan lodged a formal complaint against the Joint List lawmaker to the Knesset’s Ethics Committee. He demanded that Zoabi receive the maximum punishment possible for not only “ridiculing the Knesset, but also seriously harming the security of the state with her words.”
“Now it’s clear my accusations that (certain Arab MKs) support terrorism are true,” he declared.
Hazan also threatened to turn to the High Court of Justice if nothing is done about it, as he has complained several times to the Committee about her disloyal behavior.

A Palestinian was shot and wounded on Sunday as he attempted to stab an Israeli couple at a gas station near Mishor Adumim, an industrial park near the city of M’aale Adumim in Judea.
The terrorist approached a couple, a man and a woman, with a screwdriver in his hand and attacked them. An Israeli citizen drew his weapon and then shot and neutralized the terrorist.
No Israelis incurred bodily harm in the attack, but three were treated by medics for shock.
The terrorist, in critical condition, was taken to an Israeli hospital in Jerusalem for treatment.
Police have launched an investigation into the incident.

By: World Israel News
According to Intel, its eighth generation “Core i9” processor is the highest-performance model it has ever developed for a laptop. Its Haifa-based team led the development of the new generation of processors.
The R&D team in Haifa has a number of previous laurels to its credit as well. In 2016, Intel-Haifa developed the “Kaby Lake” processor which was at the time considered the strongest and fastest ever made for desktop computers. The “Kaby Lake” has proven to be a big hit as a gaming processor. Intel says that as the PC gaming industry grows, new processors will provide desktop-like performance for laptops.
Intel also announced that its researchers are working to provide 360 degree video content and virtual reality to fulfill the need for higher performance in both desktop and laptop computers.

After the missiles and tunnels, terror comes in the form of masses of people sent to storm the Israel-Gaza border in another instance of using Palestinians as pawns.
By: Fiamma Nirenstein, JNS.org
The risk of the “March of Return,” organized by Hamas last Friday, is that of a new kind of mass terrorism, a new kind of war. The whole world knows that this organization’s foremost aim, together with the death of the Jews and the conquest of the West, is a strategic turn taking place with these mass marches. It’s a terrorist spark in the haystack of the Middle East. Yet the United Nations again blames Israel by engaging in its favorite sport—blaming Israel, even if it was unable to pass a condemnation this time.
António Guterres supports the call for an international inquiry. He adheres to the traditional and wrong idea that Israel has used disproportionate force in countering the mass demonstrations on its border, while promoting the idea that it killed Palestinians who marched “peacefully” along its border. And European Union official Federica Mogherini argues against Israel that the civil liberties of the protestors, armed with rocks and Molotov cocktails, must be respected. Whose liberties? Those of the Islamist dictators of Gaza killing the Jews? Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, a so-called human-rights champion whose country holds the title of being the world’s biggest state sponsor of international terrorism, immediately presented himself as Hamas defender by saying: “The Zionists tyrants murder peaceful Palestinian protestors, whose land they have stolen, as they march to escape their cruel and inhuman apartheid bondage.” Taking to the stage with him is that other proponent of human rights, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, whose army has almost concluded its ethnic cleansing of the Kurdish region of Afrin in Northern Syria.

By: AP
A raging fire that tore through a 50th-floor apartment at Trump Tower killed a man inside and sent flames and thick, black smoke pouring from windows of the president’s namesake skyscraper.
New York Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro said the cause of Saturday’s blaze is not yet known but the apartment was “virtually entirely on fire” when firefighters arrived after 5:30 p.m.
“It was a very difficult fire, as you can imagine,” Nigro told reporters outside the building in midtown Manhattan. “The apartment is quite large.”
Todd Brassner, 67, who was in the apartment, was taken to a hospital and died a short time later, the New York Police Department said. Property records obtained by The Associated Press indicate Brassner was an art dealer who had purchased his 50th-floor unit in 1996.
Officials said four firefighters also suffered minor injuries. An investigation is ongoing.

Security services reveal that 10 Islamic Jihad terrorists were arrested for an planning attack on an Israeli ship last month.
By: World Israel News Staff
The Israeli Shin Bet security services announced Wednesday that 10 Islamic Jihad terrorists from Gaza were arrested last month as they were preparing an attack on a naval ship.
Once of the suspects, identified as 24-year-old fisherman Amin Jamaa, from Rafah, was indicted Wednesday on suspicion that he was gathering intelligence for the planned strike on a navy vessel.
The intricate plot would have involved several boats, with one vessel distracting the navy patrol. Another boat would then fire a Kornet missile at the navy ship and a third boat would move in to abduct soldiers. The captured Israelis would then be used as bargaining chips in a future prisoner exchange deal.
Under questioning, Jamaa reportedly confessed to having gathered information on naval ships, including intelligence about their locations, numbers of sailors on board and the weapons they have on the vessels.
The Shin Bet statement said, “This is another link in a chain of terror attacks planned and initiated by Islamic Jihad in the Gaza Strip in recent months, including a cross-border attack tunnel that was neutralized on October 30, 2017, the firing of mortar shells at Israel on November 30, 2017 and December 28, 2017, and more.”

An analysis of textbooks used in PA schools and funded by the UK, using taxpayers’ money, found they “exert pressure over young Palestinians to acts of violence.”
By: Douglas Murray, The Gatestone Institute
In 2016, a study carried out by the Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD) found that for literacy in the developed world, England ranks dead last. The same study also stated that for numeracy in the developed world, England ranks second-to-last. Even among graduates from English universities, the OECD study found, one in 10 had literacy or numeracy skills that were classified as “low”.
These results are astonishing, not to mention shaming. They reflect decades of misdirection in British education, including the misdirection of resources. Understandably, successive governments complain about a lack of resources. But all of those laments only serve to highlight the strangeness of Britain’s latest priorities in funding education.
This past weekend it emerged that last year the British government funnelled £20 million to Palestinian schools. A review by the Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School Education (IMPACT-se) found that these revenues go towards funding a curriculum which omits teaching peace, promotes the use of violence — specifically jihad — and encourages martyrdom. An analysis of the textbooks used in Palestinian schools and funded by the UK government — using UK taxpayers’ money — found that these textbooks, which come from the Palestinian Authority (PA), “exert pressure over young Palestinians to acts of violence.”

By: World Israel News Staff
Former US President Bill Clinton has admitted for the first time that he made efforts to help Shimon Peres in his failed attempt to defeat Benjamin Netanyahu in the 1996 Knesset elections. In an interview with Israel’s Channel 10 TV news, Clinton said that he wanted Peres to be prime minister because the Israeli Nobel Peace Prize winner would likely be more receptive to peace efforts than his rival, who went on to narrowly win the race. The election was held six months after the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak
Rabin.
Asked in the interview whether he “tried to help Shimon Peres to win the election,” Clinton replied, “That would be fair to say. I tried to do it in a way that didn’t overtly involve me.”
“I thought he [Peres] was more supportive of the peace process,” Clinton explained.” I tried to help in a way that was consistent with what I believed to be in Israel’s interest, without saying anything about the differences in domestic polices, or anything else.”

The White House said Wednesday that the US military mission in Syria was coming to “a rapid end” but offered no firm timeline for a withdrawal, even as President Donald Trump has insisted it’s time for American troops to return home.
With Israel and other US allies anxious about a hasty US withdrawal, the Trump administration said it would stay in war-torn Syria to finish off the job of defeating the Islamic State group and was committed to eliminating the militants’ “small” presence that “our forces have not already eradicated.”

Russian police have launched an investigation into the brutal murder of Mikhail Verevskoy, 27, who was on his way home in St. Petersburg when attacked and beaten by 36-year-old Ahmed Kharsha. Vereskoy was hospitalized following the attack and died five days later as a result of his injuries, including brain trauma, fractured ribs and facial bones, and internal wounds.
Police are investigating whether the attack was premeditated with an anti-Semitic motive. The suspect, a St. Petersburg resident, was ordered not to leave the city. He was released on bail.
Verevskoy had gone shopping at a local supermarket and was on his way home when he was suddenly attacked by the suspect outside the entrance to his apartment building.
Verevskoy immigrated to Israel in 2010 after studying architecture and civil engineering at St. Petersburg State University. He lived in Jerusalem and served in the IDF before returning to live in Russia in 2012. He got married and was reportedly an active member of the Jewish community. At the time of the attack, his wife was in labor with the couple’s first child.

Following cancellation of migrant deal with the UN, the prime minister is seeking to reopen the Holot detention center and overcome High Court rulings that block deportation.
By: World Israel News Staff
Just one day after announcing the cancellation of a UN plan, to which he had agreed, that would settle African migrants in Israel and Western countries, Prime Minister Netanyahu says he is now considering other options. These include the reopening of the Holot detention center and new legislation to deport the migrants that cannot be blocked by High Court rulings.
The deal with UN refugee agency would have seen some 16,250 African migrants in Israel resettled in “developed” Western countries, while a similar number would be given temporary residence in Israel. Netanyahu cancelled the agreement only a short time after announcing its acceptance on Monday. The prime minister’s flip-flop followed heavy domestic criticism from his coalition and from members of the public who favor deporting the migrants,who live mostly in south Tel Aviv.
According to Hadashot news, Netanyahu is now weighing a move to reopen the Holot migrant detention facility in the Negev, which had been shuttered in early March ahead of planned mass deportations.

Will a water crisis in Iran create widespread protests?
By: The Tower and World Israel News Staff
A lack of water has been spurring protests in Iran against the regime since the beginning of the year, Reuters reported Thursday.
Gathering information from online videos, Reuters reported that the protests over the water crisis have taken place mostly in Isfahan, located in central Iran, and, the Khuzestan province in the west, which is largely inhabited by non-Persian Arabs who call the region Ahwaz.
At one of the earlier demonstrations, at the beginning of the month, protesters were seen carrying signs with the tongue-in-cheek message, “Death to farmers, long live oppressors!”
While attendance at the earlier protests in the town of Varzaneh, near Isfahan, was light, a week later more people joined in.

Amid uncertainty over the future direction of US policy in Syria, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley issued a stinging rebuke on Wednesday to President Bashar al-Assad’s regime over its continued use of chemical weapons.
“We must not forget that while we sit here debating chemical weapons, there are people on the front lines in Syria who are facing the terrifying reality of those heinous weapons,” Haley declared at a meeting of the UN Security Council marking the first anniversary of the massacre at Khan Sheikhoun in northwestern Syria — in which 90 people were killed and hundreds more badly wounded after Syrian Air Force planes dropped a deadly nerve agent on rebel-held areas.

As “compensation,” Hamas is paying the families of Palestinians killed or wounded during the violent protests at the Israel-Gaza border, the terror group announced Thursday.
Families of killed protesters, many of whom are terrorists, will receive $3,000; families of those seriously wounded will get $500, and $200 will be given to families of moderately wounded protesters.
The decision was made in light of the difficult economic conditions experienced by our people in the Gaza Strip as a result of the continued Israeli siege,” Hamas stated.

Mojahid al-Khodari, 23, was killed in Israeli airstrike in northern Gaza early on Thursday, while a second man died from wounds sustained in last week’s mass protest along the Gaza-Israel border, health officials in the Gaza Strip said.
The armed protesters were shot after refusing to heed warnings not to approach the border or refusing to stop throwing rocks and firebombs at Israeli soldiers, the IDF said.
The fatalities bring to 21 the number of Palestinian casualties in confrontations at the Israel-Gaza border since last Friday, when over 30,000 Gazans marched to the security fence bordering Israel in a violent “March of Return.”
Palestinians were burning tires and throwing Molotov cocktails and stones at the border fence and at IDF forces. At least 10 of the 16 Palestinian men killed in the clashes were members of terror groups, the IDF stated.

Arabs hacked several official Israeli sites on Tuesday, with the sites’ content replaced by a photo of Palestinians rioting on the Gaza border and a caption saying, “Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine.” The voice of a Muezzin played in the background.

“The 3Falcon was here,” the hackers wrote.
Israeli security agencies and cyber defense units are on high alert in anticipation of cyber attacks this weekend, although no meaningful damage is expected.
“Anonymous” hackers gather for a demonstration each year on April 7 in support of the “Palestinian cause.” The attacks have succeeded in the past in blocking government and other sites, including the Ministries of Defense and Foreign Affairs, but all in all have caused little damage.
The Shin Bet (Israel’s Security Agency) maintains that Israel is prepared for “all forms of aggression. Israel is well-protected.”

IDF forces on Tuesday arrested three armed Palestinians who infiltrated into Israel from the Gaza Strip.
During a routine patrol of the southern Gaza border fence, soldiers detected footprints leading from the Strip 20 kilometers into Israel. Additional security forces were alerted, while local residents were notified of the possible danger.
The IDF subsequently arrested three Palestinians armed with knives and grenades near the Tse’elim IDF base, some 20 km. from (12.5 miles) the border.
There were no injuries.

By: Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
The name of a U.S. army veteran killed by a Palestinian terrorist received its just legacy after the Senate passed the Taylor Force Act into law, blocking American funding to the Palestinian Authority as long as it continues to pay salaries to convicted and deceased terrorists and their families. The bipartisan bill was approved on Friday as part of a $1.3 trillion spending package to stave off a U.S.-wide government shutdown.
A 29-year-old US Army veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan, Taylor Force was murdered by a Palestinian in a 2016 stabbing attack while he was walking on a seaside promenade in Jaffo during a Vanderbilt University student visit to Israel.

Jewish groups in the United Kingdom are protesting the country’s main opposition leader’s failure to stamp out anti-Semitism within his left-of-center party.
The Board of Deputies of British Jews and the Jewish Leadership Council charge that Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party has shown a “repeated institutional failure” to address anti-Jewish prejudice.
In an open letter, they said that “again and again, Jeremy Corbyn has sided with anti-Semites rather than Jews.”
The groups planned to protest outside Parliament on Monday before a meeting with Labour lawmakers.
The Campaign Against Antisemitism (CAA), a UK-based anti-Semitism watchdog) has denounced Corbyn to the Labour Party in a comprehensive disciplinary complaint.

Trump’s Bolton appointment sends ‘thundering message to the world’John Bolton (YouTube/Screenshot)
 Print  Email  208 Comments
According to Israeli analysts, Trump reasserted the US’ right to unilateral military action by appointing former UN Ambassador John Bolton to the post of National Security Adviser.
By: Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News and AP
US President Donald Trump’s pick of John Bolton for his next national security adviser stirred up the same burning question in Washington as in anxious foreign capitals: Just how much will his hawkish, confrontational approach rub off on Trump? As he confronts matters of war and peace with North Korea and Iran, Trump is bringing in an adviser likely to magnify many of his own instinctive qualities: hard-hitting, fiercely nationalistic and eager to confront US adversaries.
Bolton’s pick rounds out a team that in Trump’s second year will be compromised almost entirely of hawks whose public views on national security veer decidedly to the right. The appointment of Bolton sent shockwaves through the diplomatic and military communities, and on social media, fueling speculation that the prospects for global confrontation are increasing.

Israeli court protects right to Jewish prayer near Temple Mount
 March 26, 2018
Three teenagers who had been arrested by police for praying near a gate close to the Temple Mount were released without any restrictions.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Police who arrested three 14-year-old girls on March 8th for praying outside the Forgiveness Gate of the Temple Mount were rapped by the judge in the case in a ruling published Sunday.
Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court Judge Shmuel Herbst ruled that the Jewish teens had just as much right to pray in any public space as Arabs do, as long as nobody’s rights were harmed in the process. And since they didn’t interfere with any passersby while praying, the police had erred in arresting them. As they had done no wrong, he denied the police request to distance them from the area for 90 days, dismissing the concern that their presence with prayerbooks in hand could provoke Arabs to violence.
As reported in Arutz Sheva, the judge noted, “The police representative’s argument that throwing of objects would have resulted from the young women’s presence is unacceptable to me, as I wouldn’t have accepted the claim that a man with a wallet full of cash walking in a neighborhood where many pickpockets live violates public safety and invites offenses.”

The Facebook page of a Palestinian news outlet called Safa, which is linked to the Hamas terror organization, was unceremoniously deleted by the social media giant over the weekend. Safa officials complained that they received no prior warning about the move, which came hard on the heels of a meeting last Monday between Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked and a Facebook representative.
The site’s staff says it is a legitimate news organization that has 1.3 million followers. Its social media manager said that Safa “has not incited to violence and has followed all of Facebook’s guidelines for making posts.” However, it recently praised as a “hero” the killer of Rabbi Raziel Shevach in a drive-by shooting in January.

US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley slammed the UN Human Rights Council on Friday after it approved a slew of anti-Israel decisions within the framework of its infamous “Agenda Item 7.”
“Today, the UN Human Rights Council adopted five resolutions condemning Israel,” Haley said in a statement. “At the same time, the Council adopted only one resolution each against North Korea, Iran, and Syria. Every March, the Council sets aside only two sessions to debate human rights violations and abuses in all countries and another entire session just to debate a single country, Israel.”
“When the Human Rights Council treats Israel worse than North Korea, Iran, and Syria, it is the Council itself that is foolish and unworthy of its name,” Haley continued. “It is time for the countries who know better to demand changes.”

US, Europe kick out Russian diplomats over UK spy poisoning
 March 26, 2018
The US and more than a dozen European nations kicked out Russian diplomats on Monday, with the Trump administration ordering Russia’s consulate in Seattle to close.
By: AP
On Monday, the West sought joint punishment for Moscow’s alleged poisoning of an ex-spy in Britain. Warning of an “unacceptably high” number of Russian spies in the U.S., the Trump administration said 60 diplomats would be expelled — all Russian intelligence agents working under diplomatic cover, the U.S. said. The group includes a dozen posted to Russia’s mission to the United Nations who the officials said were engaged in “aggressive collection” of intelligence on American soil.
The move was one of the most significant actions President Donald Trump’s administration has taken to date to punish Moscow and Russian President Vladimir Putin, especially over its intelligence activities. The last time they spoke, less than a week ago, Trump congratulated Putin for his re-election but didn’t raise the March 4 spy poisoning, Russia’s alleged election-meddling in the U.S. or its own tainted voting process, prompting dismayed critiques even from Trump’s fellow Republicans.

Israel’s Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon said the latest attempt by the Palestinian Authority to raise its status within the international community and delegitimize Israel is a campaign to “establish facts on the ground by making detours and unilateral moves.”
Such moves breach the Palestinians’ obligations under 1993 Oslo Peace Accords with Israel.

Israel announces $264 million digital healthcare program

Over 60% of the proposed budget for the program would be used to establish digital infrastructure for medical research. 
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Israel’s cabinet approved Sunday a five-year digital health project that will cost close to a billion shekels but bring the country’s entire health system into the cutting edge of the 21st century and advance its medical research to become a world leader in the field.
Among the projects in the National Digital Health Plan are the unification of all Israeli patients’ medical records collected over the last two decades (98% of the population) into one database; making connections between multi-national companies and Israeli startups in the various digital health fields; and developing high-level courses to staff digital health positions of the future.
The full-scale digitization of a patient database, called the Mosaic Project, aims to improve Israelis’ wellness in the short term by detecting health trends and improving the accuracy of diagnoses. It also has vast potential for long-term research in genetics and pharmaceuticals, to name two commercial, multi-billion-dollar fields.

By a vote of 27 to 4, with 15 abstentions, the UNHRC passed the resolution, which requests that member states’ “public authorities and private entities do not become involved in … the provision of arms to end users known or likely to use the arms in the commission of serious violations of international humanitarian and/or human rights law.”

Thousands of African illegal migrants, so-called asylum seekers, and their local supporters protested on Saturday night against an Israeli government plan to deport them.
Organizers say some 15,000 gathered in front of the Tel Aviv City Hall.
The government says the migrants have to leave the country for an undisclosed African destination in exchange for $3,500 and a plane ticket, or they will be incarcerated.
The Africans, some from Eritrea and Sudan, say they feel at home in Israel while dreading their impending return to Africa.
Israel considers the vast majority of the some 40,000 migrants to be job seekers and says it has no legal obligation to keep them. Women, children, the elderly and fathers are not targeted in this plan.
Critics have called the government plan unethical and a stain on Israel’s image.

Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked blasts Twitter’s refusal to cooperate against the platform’s use for incitement; says Facebook is on the right track.
By Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
Addressing the Global Forum for Fighting Anti-Semitism on Tuesday in Jerusalem, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked launched into a blistering account of the current dangers of online incitement on social media and argued for government action.
The cyber department at the State Attorney’s Office has recently analyzed the connection between incitement and terrorism during 2017, she said. “There is a close connection between the two. It is clear that the perpetrators of terror attacks in Israel are directly impacted by the consumption of incitement. We documented that after large-scale terrorist attacks, the social media are flooded with incitement, hate, anti-Semitic and terror-supporting content.”
The Justice minister explained that two pieces of legislation are in the works to counter online incitement. In 2017, Israel approved a bill that blocks access to websites that promote terrorist activity. The police cyber unit actively does just that. During 2017, the cyber unit of the State Attorney’s Office submitted 12,300 requests to remove content or restrict access for forbidden content. That same year, 73 percent of this content was related to terrorist activity or was in support of terrorism. The rest of the banned content related to racism, minors, violation of privacy and bullying. This was a dramatic increase over 2016, when only 2,200 requests were submitted.

The next “prize” the Palestinians will likely claim as their own at the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) will probably be the archeological site of Qumran and its Dead Sea Scrolls, Shimon Samuels of the Simon Wiesenthal Center said Wednesday, according to The Jerusalem Post.
Addressing a panel on the denial of Jewish history in international organizations at the Global Forum for Combating Antisemitism in Jerusalem, Samuels listed the Palestinians’ “success” at falsely claiming ownership of biblical and cultural sites, the Post reported.
UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee has ascribed to “Palestine” Bethlehem’s Church of the Nativity in 2012; the agricultural terraces of Battir, site of the ancient Jewish fortress at Betar, in 2014; and Hebron’s Tomb of the Patriarchs in 2017, the Post noted.

Palestinian Ahed Tamimi will serve eight months for slapping IDF soldiers in December.
By: TPS
Ahed Tamimi, the Palestinian arrested last December after a video of her slapping and kicking an IDF officer went viral, will serve an eight-month prison sentence after agreeing to a plea bargain with the military prosecution.
Her cousin, 21-year-old Nur Tamimi, will serve a five-month sentence for her role in the incident, while her mother Nariman will serve eight months. The agreement is pending the approval of the Ofer military court.
The cousins were filmed assaulting a company commander and a soldier in the village of Nebi Salah, the site of frequent violent demonstrations and clashes between residents and IDF troops. Ahed Tamimi was charged with assault and five additional counts of throwing rocks, participating in disturbances, threats and incitement. Nur Tamimi was charged with assault in aggravated circumstances, while Nariman Tamimi was charged with aiding and abetting assault and also with incitement connected to a previous disturbance.

Palestinian prisoners who committed acts of terror are undertaking academic studies while serving their sentences, undermining the Israeli government.
By: Maurice Hirsch, Palestinian Media Watch
In April 2017, Palestinian Media Watch exposed that the Palestinian Authority is actively undermining a decision the Israeli government adopted, in response to the kidnapping of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, to prohibit Palestinian terrorist prisoners from receiving academic degrees while serving their sentences.
Despite the ban, the PA claimed 484 terrorist prisoners were studying for degrees in a program initiated by the PLO Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs. The program is run in cooperation with Al-Quds Open University and the PA Ministry of Education.
Regardless of the substantial alleged number of terrorist prisoner students, the Israeli Prison Service rejected the claim and responded to PMW that in accordance with the decision of the government, “security prisoners are not allowed to undertake academic studies.”

Netanyahu: Israel’s policy is to prevent enemies from acquiring nuclear weapons
 March 22, 2018
Netanyahu: Israel’s policy is to prevent enemies from acquiring nuclear weaponsPrime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (Marc Israel Sellem/POOL)
“Israel’s policy has been and remains consistent – to prevent our enemies from arming themselves with nuclear weapons,” Netanyahu stated.
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised Israel’s security services for their success in eliminating Syria’s nuclear capabilities a decade ago, while issuing a veiled threat to Iran that Israel will not allow it to develop a nuclear bomb.
Following Israel’s official acknowledgment on Wednesday that it attacked and destroyed the Al-Kibar nuclear facility in Syria in 2007, Netanyahu stated that “the Government of Israel, the IDF and the Mossad prevented Syria from developing a nuclear capability. For this they are deserving of all praise.”
“Israel’s policy has been and remains consistent – to prevent our enemies from arming themselves with nuclear weapons,” he added, seemingly referring to Iran’s current nuclear aspiration.
During the night between September 5 and 6, 2007, Israel secretly bombed the Syrian nuclear reactor, in accordance with the Menachem Begin Doctrine, which states that no Israeli adversary in the Middle East should be allowed to acquire a nuclear weapon.
The operation was deemed a success. The nuclear facility was destroyed and an escalation in the region was prevented.
The destruction of the Syrian reactor was an historic operation of great significance for the State of Israel and the Jewish People and one of the most important military operations in the IAF’s history.
Current Chief of Staff, Lt.-Gen. Gadi Eisenkot, OC Northern Command at the time of the operation, said the message that should be taken from the incident is that “Israel will never accept an existential threat against it. That was the message in 2007, and that is the message to our enemies in both the near and distant future.”

Polish prime minister’s father: Jews willingly entered ghettos

Polish lawmaker Kornel Morawiecki claimed that Jews were not forced into ghettos by Germans but went willingly because “they were told there would be an enclave where they could get away from nasty Poles.”
By: AP
Poland’s government distanced itself Thursday from comments made by the prime minister’s father, who claimed Jews willingly entered ghettos during the Holocaust to get away from their non-Jewish neighbors.
The comment by Kornel Morawiecki, a senior lawmaker and father of Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, is the latest episode in weeks of bitterness that have erupted over a controversial new Holocaust speech law.
Kornel Morawiecki claimed in a recent interview that Jews were not forced into ghettos by Germans but went willingly because “they were told there would be an enclave where they could get away from nasty Poles.”
The comment is utterly historically false. It is also an apparent attempt to minimize the tragedy of the Jews, while at the same time suggesting they partly brought the tragedy upon themselves out of anti-Polish hatred.
The deputy foreign minister, Bartosz Cichocki, said the comment does not reflect the position of the Polish government.

Analysts take a hard look at the Israeli admission of 2007 attack on a Syrian nuclear reactor, and its message for Iran.
By: Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
After acknowledging for the first time that the Israeli air force blew up a Syrian nuclear reactor in 2007, current members of the security cabinet issued fresh warnings to Iran on Wednesday that its nuclear weapons program is not immune from attack.
The official confirmation ended a decade long policy of referring to the strike by always saying, “according to foreign reports.” Now details of “Operation Orchard” have emerged and the attack on the facility in Deir Ezzor has been acknowledged and holds a message for Iran.
Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said, “the historic and brave decision we took proved that we cannot be deterred on matters of security.” Liberman, who was minister of strategic affairs in 2007 tweeted, “Try to imagine what would have happened, had we not acted. We would be facing a nuclear Syria.” Alluding to Iran’s current nuclear ambitions and threats to destroy Israel, the defense minister added, “our enemies’ motivation has increased in recent years, but so has the might of the IDF… This equation should be understood by anyone in the Middle East.”

Does the EU refuse to admit that ‘anti-Jewish’ acts are ‘anti-Semitism’?Defaced Holocaust memorial (Twitter)
The European Union has ‘not used the words anti-Semitism, but they do use anti-Jewish and anti-Israel in the same sentence,’ says head of NGO Monitor.
By: Steve Leibowitz
Speaking on the sidelines of the 6th Global Forum for Combating Anti-Semitism in Jerusalem, Dr. Gerald Steinberg, president of NGO Monitor and professor of Political Studies at Bar Ilan University, told World Israel News (WIN), “Certainly the numbers and the incidents that we see, including terrorism and violence triggered by anti-Semitism, is something we did not see 10 or 20 years ago. There are more incidents in the US and Europe, and it’s connected to a lot of anti-Israel propaganda.”
According to Steinberg, “Online is a big part of the problem but not the entire problem. The news travels much faster on both the far left and the far right, and they influence people that may not otherwise have been affected by incitement in the past. The question we are all asking ourselves here is what can we do about it. Can we get governments to be more proactive on this issue? In other words, they must not simply react to an incident,  because the hatred out there needs to be dealt with systematically.”
“One of the things I am doing is pointing out that for the first time, the European Union is saying that it will not fund groups actively engaged in anti-Jewish activities,” Steinberg added.

“Terrorist organizations have moved to Twitter instead of Facebook,” Israel’s justice minister said. Shares plummeted over fear it may be sued.
By: JNS.org and World Israel News Staff
Twitter shares were down 12 percent by Wednesday following reports that Israel was considering legal action against the social media platform.
Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked has accused Twitter of providing a channel for terror organizations to promote terror and incite violence, and of not doing enough to end incitement against Israel.
“Terrorist organizations such as Hamas and Hezbollah have moved to Twitter instead of Facebook,” she said. “Through Twitter, the terrorist organizations promote terror and incite to violence, including public activity that they carry out without fear.”
A wave of stabbing attacks in 2014 gained strength through social media, leading Israel’s government to try to pass a “Facebook Law” that empowers Israel to have content “liable to lead to murder and terror” removed from Facebook immediately.
Israel has recognized the threat posed by terrorism incitement on Facebook and has successfully acted against those who use social media as a weapon, helping to reduce a trend of attacks against Israelis.

Shootout leaves two suspects and two Gazan security personnel dead.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
According to a Hamas official, the main suspect in the attack on the convoy of Palestinian Authority (PA) Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah on March 13 has died along with an accomplice after being shot by Gazan security forces who had surrounded their hideout Thursday.
Two of the arresting forces were also killed in the gun battle in Nuseirat.
There are conflicting reports as to which suspect was killed outright and which died of his wounds in the hospital a short time later. According to the Turkish Daily Sabah, the Gazan Interior Ministry’s statement said that “the prime suspect, Anas Abu Khoussa, was killed in the exchange, while an accomplice, Abdul-Hadi al-Ashhab, succumbed to injuries after being hospitalized,” adding that a third accomplice had since been arrested.
Hamas had offered a $5,000 reward for information regarding the assassination attempt on Hamdallah and PA security chief Majid Faraj, who were traveling in a motorcade in the Gaza Strip when a roadside bomb went off. Though some members of their staff were injured, they were not hurt.

Heiko Maas, the Justice Minister in German Chancellor Andrea Merkel’s third cabinet, was promoted to foreign minister when her new government was sworn in on March 14.
He replaces Sigmar Gabriel, who had rubbed Jerusalem the wrong way a number of times during his tenure. He remained a critic of what he deemed Israel’s lack of effort in the peace process, and went as far as saying that Israeli security measures reminded him of “what was seen during apartheid.”
In April 2017, he was publicly disinvited from a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when, on a visit to the country, he decided to meet with the extremist left-wing Breaking the Silence group, which vilifies the IDF in international forums.

Israel confirms it destroyed Syria’s nuclear reactor a decade ago
 March 21, 2018
Israel confirms it destroyed Syria’s nuclear reactor a decade agoAn IAF F-15 (IAF)
Israel lifted the censorship gag on details surrounding the daring operation that destroyed a Syrian nuclear threat. 
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
A decade after the crucial secret operation, Israel officially acknowledged that it attacked and destroyed the Al-Kibar nuclear facility in Syria, which was in its last stages of construction at the time.
During the night between September 5 and 6, 2007, Israel secretly bombed the nuclear reactor, in accordance with the Begin Doctrine, which states that no Israeli adversary in the Middle East would be allowed to acquire a nuclear weapon.
In a secret mission known as operation “Out Of The Box,” authorized by then-Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, eight Israeli Air Force (IAF) aircraft flew along the Syrian-Turkish border shortly before 1 a.m. and destroyed the Syrian nuclear facility.
The Syrian nuclear project operated under a heavy cloak of secrecy for about six years prior to its destruction. The Al Kibar reactor was situated 900 yards from the Euphrates River and halfway between the borders with Turkey and Iraq, far from Syria’s biggest cities, in the Deir ez-Zor region, 280 miles northeast of Damascus.
For two years prior to the attack, officials in the IDF Military Intelligence Directorate were monitoring the Syrian nuclear project. Their intelligence suggested that the facility would become active toward the end of 2007, which prompted the IDF to initiate an attack.
In March 2007, the Mossad – Israel’s national intelligence agency – raided the home of the head of Syria’s atomic energy commission in Vienna, where they discovered conclusive information about the reactor.
The information recovered by the Mossad operatives included some three dozen color photographs taken from inside the Syrian building, indicating that it was a top-secret plutonium nuclear reactor. The photographs obtained by the Mossad also showed workers from North Korea at the site. The sole purpose of this kind of plutonium reactor, in the Mossad’s analysis, was to produce an atomic bomb.

By: Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
Following his latest White House meeting with President Donald Trump, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu returned to tell the cabinet there are still “no concrete details” to report on the US peace plan.  In all likelihood, Ambassador Friedman’s public clash with PA leader Mahmoud Abbas, and his cursing Friedman as the “son of a dog” is likely to shelve the peace plan for the foreseeable future.
Trump’s senior advisor and son-in-law Jared Kushner and a small White House team have spent the past year preparing a much-awaited blueprint for peace, but no details have emerged.
There have been plenty of leaks, including seemingly detailed proposals listed by Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat, but according to Netanyahu, as reported by Channel 10 TV, “At the moment, there is no concrete American peace plan on the table. I’m not saying there won’t be, but at the moment there isn’t.”

Arthur Jones, an outspoken Holocaust denier, anti-Semite and white supremacist, on Tuesday won the Republican nominee for an Illinois congressional seat representing parts of Chicago.
Jones, 70, is a retired insurance agent who has run disastrous campaigns for elected office in the Chicago area and Milwaukee since the 1970s.
Since the 1990s, Jones has joined in the GOP 3rd Congressional District primary seven times, but has never come close to being a viable contender. However, this time, to Jones’ amazement, he was the only one on the Republican ballot. Republicans apparently did not bother to seek a credible candidate because the district is overwhelmingly Democrat. Thus, Jones won by default.

Saudi Arabia, with the visit of the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to the United States this week, opens a new front in its war with Iran.
The visit is a collection of firsts. It is the first trip by Prince Mohammed bin Salman — known universally as “MBS” — to the US since becoming the heir to the oil kingdom’s throne in June 2017. (President Trump’s first presidential trip to the Middle East began with a stop in Saudi Arabia.)
More importantly, it is the first time a senior Saudi official, let alone a ruling royal, will venture outside the US capital to make official visits to Wall Street, Hollywood and Silicon Valley.

As he struggles to maintain control, Abbas wants to create an emergency in the region that could draw in Israel and Hamas, says an Israeli expert.
By: Yaakov Lappin, JNS.org
The Palestinian Authority (PA) wasted little time in blaming Hamas for a roadside bomb that went off last week in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.
It was far too close for comfort for a PA convoy carrying Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah and the head of the PA’s General Intelligence service, Majed Faraj. They had arrived there as part of ongoing reconciliation efforts, which have stalled. The high-level convoy quickly returned to the PA territories.
Since then, PA leader Mahmoud Abbas has threatened to cut off payments to Gaza, as the two Palestinian movements traded recriminations, moving further apart from any chance of reconciliation. The latest developments seemed to underline just how unrealistic it is to expect the PA to be able to consolidate itself in Gaza, nine years after being brutally ejected in an armed Hamas coup.

The competing demands by Russia and the UK could place Netanyahu in a diplomatic tough spot.

By: Andrew Friedman, TPS

The British Embassy in Israel has demanded that Israel issue a “strong statement of support” about the March 4th poisoning of a former Russian double agent and his daughter in Salisbury, southeast of London.

The British demand that Israeli officials denounce Moscow for the attack follows Foreign Ministry Spokesman Emmanuel Nachshon’s response to the incident , posted on Twitter on March 15, in which he refrained from mentioning Russia and said only that “Israel views with gravity the event which took place in Great Britain and condemns it vigorously. We hope that the international community will cooperate in order to avoid such further events.”

British officials, including Prime Minister Theresa May and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, immediately blamed Moscow for the attack. Western allies of the United Kingdom have joined London in denouncing Russia, but Russian officials have denied involvement.

Last Friday, the Russian Embassy in Israel welcomed Nachshon’s measured response as a “wise position.” Notably, the statement published by the Russian embassy made reference to “West Jerusalem” as Israel’s seat of government, a departure from Russia’s official position and possibly a small bone to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has lobbied the international community to follow US President Donald Trump’s precedent and recognise Jerusalem as the state capital.

At the same time, Moscow warned Jerusalem not to be drawn into a “political and propagandistic campaign, which was unleashed by London under the false pretext of Russia’s alleged involvement in the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal.”

The competing demands could place Netanyahu in a difficult spot. The Israeli leader has nurtured a close relationship with Russian President Putin in recent years, travelling to Moscow three times in the past year alone in an attempt to ensure Russia’s help in limiting Iran’s presence in Syria following the conclusion of the civil war there, as well as help in addressing the Iran nuclear threat.

In addition, Russia-Israel trade has boomed since the countries signed a free trade agreement in 2011. In 2017 alone, bilateral trade spiked over the first half of the year by some $380 million, a 25 percent jump over the same period the previous year.

On the other hand, bilateral trade between Israel and the United Kingdom exceeds $7 billion, according to the Israel-Britain Chamber of Commerce (IBCC) ,in comparison to $1.45 billion in bilateral trade between Israel and Russia. In addition, there are more than 300 Israeli companies operating in the UK.

Netanyahu did not respond to the English demand for a stronger statement Tuesday or to a TPS request for comment. But less than 24 hours earlier he did issue a statement of congratulations to Putin upon the latter’s election victory in Russia’s presidential election.

“Dear Mr. President, Accept my sincere congratulations on your election victory yesterday. I greatly value our personal dialogue and I look forward to continuing to work closely together in the spirit of trust and understanding to promote our countries’ vital interests,” Netanyahu wrote.

Responding to WJC President Ronald Lauder’s recent op-ed blaming Israeli policies for Jewish assimilation in America, Minister Naftali Bennett said, “Not a great piece.” 
By: Ebin Sandler, World Israel News
Business leader, philanthropist, and World Jewish Congress (WJC) head Ronald Lauder wrote an opinion piece for the New York Times arguing that assimilation and indifference to Israel in the Diaspora are the product of the Jewish state’s positions on Judea and Samaria and religious affairs.
In the piece, published on Sunday, Lauder pointed a finger at “blinkered Israeli policies,”, claiming, “If current trends continue, Israel will face a stark choice: Grant Palestinians full rights and cease being a Jewish state or rescind their rights and cease being a democracy.” In short, Lauder expressed fear over both “the possible demise of the two-state solution,” on the one hand, and what he deems “Israel’s capitulation to religious extremists and the growing disaffection of the Jewish diaspora” on the other.
Minister of Education and Diaspora Affairs Naftali Bennett took the opportunity to confront Lauder face to face at the Foreign Ministry-sponsored Global Forum for Combating Anti-Semitism in Jerusalem on Monday. Addressing Lauder directly from the dais, Bennett began by saying, “Ron, I read your piece in The New York Times – not a great piece.”

In conversation with Netanyahu, Merkel reportedly warned the Israeli leader of serious repercussions should the US leave the Iran nuclear deal.
By: World Israel News Staff
A US withdrawal from the Iran nuclear agreement would have devastating consequences, German Chancellor Angela Merkel reportedly told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a recent phone conversation, Channel 10 reported.
In January, at the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Netanyahu held closed-door talks with many world leaders, and the Iranian threat topped his agenda. US President Donald Trump also called on other countries to join his efforts to “block Iran’s path to nuclear weapons.”
Trump’s firing of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson last week as well as his choice of CIA director Mike Pompeo to replace him is further indication that the US may pull out of the Iran deal. Indeed, Trump acknowledged that the reason behind Tillerson’s dismissal was his support for the agreement.

Polish officials appear to be testing a new law that criminalizes mentioning Polish complicity in the Holocaust, even before its constitutionality has been decided.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
A joint Polish-Israeli Holocaust memorial ceremony was supposed to take place Monday in Radomsko, Poland, but Polish officials objected to parts of Kiryat Bialik Mayor Eli Dukorsky’s speech which referred to Polish bystanders and collaborators. Although he was also going to speak about those who helped Jews during the dark days of World War II, they asked him to remove the parts that the new Polish law criminalizes – the mention of Polish complicity in the Holocaust.
Although the contentious Holocaust legislation is still being reviewed by the country’s constitutional tribunal and there are ongoing discussions with Israeli officials as to its wording, it appears Polish officials are resolved to send a message regarding their intent to enforce the law.

By: TPS
Police have arrested eight people for failing to prevent a crime following Sunday’s murder of Adiel Kolman, who was stabbed to death outside the Lions Gate in the Muslim Quarter of Jerusalem’s Old City.
A police spokesman said that the detainees, residents of the quarter and merchants working there, did nothing to stop Abd al-Rahman Bani Fadel, a Palestinian from Aqraba near Nablus, from stabbing Kolman before he was shot dead by a policeman. Kolman was walking toward the light rail station outside the Damascus Gate from his job as a security guard at the City of David archaeological site.
Police added that according to their investigation, Fadal had committed a premeditated, nationalistically motivated attack with the intention of murdering civilians.

Netanyahu agreed with “greatest technological visionary” that the Negev is the “energy future of the State of Israel” and vowed to develop it.
By: World Israel News Staff and TPS
Speaking at the 8th Negev Conference in Dimona Tuesday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he met earlier with Elon Musk, founder and CEO of electrical and autonomic car company Tesla Inc. and aerospace company SpaceX, who encouraged development of the Negev.
“This morning, before coming here, I met with Elon Musk, a man of vision, perhaps the greatest technological visionary of our time. He is a genius,” Netanyahu told the crowd.
Musk, 46,  praised Israel as a ‘technological power’ and said the Negev could provide the country with all its energy needs, Netanyahu said.
Musk “said that he appreciates what we are doing here. And then he said – and he did not know I was coming here – he told me, ‘The Negev could provide you with all your energy needs. The Negev is the energy future of the State of Israel. You could spread solar systems here that would give you more energy than you need or could need. Clean energy.’”
“I tell you what he told me,” the prime minister continued. “‘If you only want it,’ and I tell you that I want it. I want a vibrant, flourishing and developing Negev. And we will continue to do this, to develop it as has never been done in the history of Israel.”

Researchers At MIT Claim Nuclear Fusion Could Be Up And Running In 15 Years
Wochit News
Published on 10 Mar 2018
According to a report by Geek.com, a team of researchers at MIT claim to have developed a new approach that could bring nuclear fusion technology online and delivering power inside of 15 years. However, as physicists have been trying to solve this problem for over 50 years, many remain skeptical about the claims. Nuclear fusion, the same process which powers our own sun, requires incredibly high temperatures and extreme conditions. Regardless, the team hopes to use incredibly powerful magnets and high-temperature superconductors to compress the fusion reaction with magnetic fields, as opposed to gravity. This has the potential to offer a lot more control, and potentially help introduce a cleaner, more sustainable form of energy.

An employee of the French consulate was apprehended for smuggling weapons for a Palestinian synidcate operating in Gaza and the Judea and Samaria region.
By: World Israel News Staff
On Monday, the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) confirmed that French national Roman Franck, who is employed at France’s Jerusalem consulate, was arrested in February for illegally smuggling pistols and rifles into the Gaza Strip.
The Shin Bet announced that the Frenchman used a consular vehicle to evade Israeli security procedures and searches, transferring 70 pistols and two assault rifles to members of a Palestinian smuggling ring. The smuggling allegedly occurred over the course of five trips and was orchestrated by a cell made up of Palestinians from the Gaza Strip, Judea and Samaria and eastern Jerusalem.
The cell smuggled weapons from the Gaza Strip to Judea and Samaria via Franck. The operation employed a Palestinian resident of Gaza employed by the French Cultural Center in the Strip, who transferred weapons to Franck. Franck then delivered the weapons to a Palestinian in Judea and Samaria, who sold them to an arms dealers.
The authorities arrested nine suspects so far, six of whom were indicted by the State Attorney’s Office.

The Palestinian president has called the U.S. ambassador to Israel a “son of a dog,” in an angry rant against the Trump administration.
In a speech Monday, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas pre-emptively rejected an expected White House peace proposal.
He criticized the U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the American plan to move its embassy to the city and the cutting off of hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to the U.N. agency for Palestinian “refugees.”
He also condemned Ambassador David Friedman’s close ties with Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, describing him as a “son of a dog.”

Seven days after a roadside bomb nearly killed the Palestinian prime minister as he traveled to the Gaza Strip, Abbas stopped blaming Israel, pointing his finger instead at the Hamas terrorist group.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas spoke out at a meeting Monday of the Palestinian leadership in Judea and Samaria, pointing definitively at Hamas as the perpetrators of an attempted assassination last week of PA Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah.
“We are fully aware that Hamas is the one who stands behind that incident and carried it out,” Abbas said.
Last Tuesday, Hamdallah entered the northeastern Gaza Strip in a convoy of cars to inaugurate a wastewater treatment plant. A roadside bomb was detonated almost immediately, damaging the last three cars in the explosion and injuring several of their passengers. Hamdallah was not hurt in the incident.
The initial reaction from PA President Mahmoud Abbas’ office was that Hamas “bears full responsibility for this treasonous aggression,” a logical step considering that the terrorist organization holds the Strip in an iron grip. Later that day, however, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh talked to Hamdallah and according to Ha’aretz, they agreed that “Israel and its collaborators” were responsible for the attempt on the prime minister’s life.

Analysts weigh in on whether the Shin Bet’s arrest of a French consulate worker for his role in a Palestinian arms smuggling cell will affect Israel-France relations.
By: Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
The Shin Bet security services arrest of a French consular driver with diplomatic privileges was a major embarrassment for France, but it will not cause it a diplomatic problem with Israel. Analysts closely watching developments say that early signs point toward Israel’s determination to put Roman Franck on trial because he lacks diplomatic immunity.
The Shin Bet says that the suspect “cynically exploited” his diplomatic privileges by smuggling more than 70 weapons from Gaza to Judea and Samaria. The Israeli Foreign Ministry on Monday termed the allegations “very serious” but insisted that the incident would not compromise diplomatic ties between the two countries.
International law expert Ambassador Alan Baker told World Israel News (WIN), “If he was a diplomat he would have full immunity. But as a consular staff member, who allegedly carried out a crime that was not connected to his work, he can be put on trial and imprisoned.

Once again, the EU displays a brazen hypocrisy towards Israel by applying the policy of “Do as we say, not as we do.”
By: Daniel Krygier, Political Analyst, World Israel News
The European Union (EU) recently criticized a new Israeli law that revokes Jerusalem residency permits for individuals involved in terrorism against the Jewish state. The new law, passed by the Knesset, enables the Israeli Ministry of Interior to deal with Hamas members residing in Arab communities within Jerusalem’s municipal borders.
The new Israeli law would, according to the EU, make the lives of Jerusalem-area Arabs “even more precarious than it already is today.” The EU conveniently ignores the fact that law-abiding Arab residents who are not involved in terrorism would have nothing to fear from the new law.
Once again, the EU displays brazen hypocrisy towards Israel by applying the policy of “Do as we say, not as we do.” The European Court of Justice has already ruled that EU member states can, under certain circumstances and on a case-by-case basis, revoke asylum status for migrants suspected of supporting terrorist groups. A case was brought up to the European top court in June 2015 after Germany accused a Turkish citizen of supporting the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, also known as PKK.

Abed Alkarim Adel Assi, the 19 year-old Arab-Israeli terrorist who murdered Rabbi Itamar Ben-Gal outside of Ariel on February 5 was arrested in the early hours of Sunday morning after a weeks-long manhunt, the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) said in a statement.
The Shin Bet said Adel Assi had been apprehended in the Palestinian city of Nablus in a joint operation involving the domestic security agency, Israeli Police special forces and the IDF.
Several other persons suspected of helping Adel Assi evade security forces were also arrested and taken in for questioning.
Adel Assi stabbed Ben-Gal, 29-year-old father of four, and a resident of the community of Har Bracha south of Nablus, in the chest at a bus stop outside of Ariel, fatally wounding him.
Adel Assi was born to a Palestinian father and an Arab-Israeli mother from Haifa, entitling him to Israeli citizenship. He is well known to Israeli welfare services, having spent much of his adolescence on the streets. In 2016, Assi arrived at Beit HaShanti, a shelter for youth at risk in Tel Aviv. He spent several weeks living on and off at the shelter, but eventually left following disagreements with staff over his frequent visits to his father in Nablus, where they believed he was being taken advantage of and radicalized by hostile elements.

By: Yona Schnitzer, TPS
The IDF has thwarted an attempt by Hamas to renovate a terror tunnel that the army had previously destroyed leading from Gaza into Israel in the early hours of Sunday morning, an IDF spokesman said Sunday.
As part of its effort to eradicate the terror tunnels coming out of Gaza, the IDF’s Engineering Corps, in an operation lead by the Southern Command, carried out the demolition. A further attack took place on Hamas’ underground infrastructure in the central Gaza Strip in response to several recent attacks on patrols along the border fence using improvised explosive devices, the army said.
“Systematically, while making use of quality intelligence and groundbreaking technology, Israel is destroying tunnel after tunnel. Whoever thought they would succeed in attacking us [from] underground, has run into an iron barrier,” Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said in a statement, “Hamas has invested billions in the tunnels project, and is now drowning in sand. I advise that Hamas invest its money in the wellbeing of the people of Gaza; by the end of the year, its tunnel project will have been eradicated.”

The Israel Defense Forces is developing new sophisticated techniques, including extensive psychological profiling, in an effort to prevent “lone wolf” terror attacks, the Hebrew language daily Makor Rishon reported on Sunday.
According to the report, intelligence services in IDF Central Command have adopted a process of “mapping” potential terrorists. This allows the IDF to preempt possible attacks as well as capture terrorists who have already committed them.
A senior officer involved in the program told Makor Rishon, “In this work we search for direct connections to terror or attempts to create connections like this. An index system classifies who is likely to get involved in terror. Bottom line, we thwart dozens of attacks before they are carried out thanks to intelligence work and operational actions.”

President Donald Trump’s firing of Rex Tillerson and appointment of CIA director Mike Pompeo as new US secretary of state is great news for Israel and bad news for Iran. Pompeo is a great admirer of Israel and a vocal opponent of diplomacy with the Iranian ayatollah regime.
A recent Gallup poll recorded the highest American support for Israel since the 1990s. While 75% of Americans today view Israel favorably, the US State Department has a long history of hostility towards the Jewish state and pro-Arab bias. Tillerson was part of this history, and the State Department disapproved of Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

By: Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
The Hamas-run Gaza security forces have made a number of arrests following Tuesday morning’s attempted assassination of Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah. Those arrested include workers for two cellular phone companies, and officials claim they are close to solving the case. YNET reported that according to Palestinian sources, the attackers used phones from Palestinian cellular communications companies Wataniya Mobile and Jawwal to activate the explosive charges. The head of Hamas security, Tawfiq Abu Naim, says he already has the names of all involved. “The investigation is underway and we will publish findings when it is complete,” said Naim.
The explosive device was detonated Tuesday near the convoy of Hamdallah, who was visiting the Gaza Strip accompanied by Palestinian General Intelligence chief Majid Faraj. A second explosive device reportedly failed to explode for technical reasons. The charges were buried in the ground, weighed 15 kilograms each, and were placed 40 meters apart.

By: Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
Despite its White House venue, the significance of a “Gaza Aid” conference on Tuesday went largely under the radar, barely noticed in international media. Israel was in the midst of a now-resolved coalition crisis, leaving the gathering under-reported in Israel itself. The meeting was called by President Trump’s Middle East coordinator Jason Greenblatt, and attendees included top security officials from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, the United Arab Emirates and Israel.
Also attending were officials from Egypt, Jordan, Canada and various European countries. The Palestinian Authority was invited, but chose not to attend because they are still boycotting anything related to the US after Trump’s Jerusalem declaration.
The event marked an unprecedented moment for Israeli diplomacy, as Jerusalem interacted with Arab states with which it has no diplomatic relations. The last time that Israeli and Arab officials were in the same room together in common purpose was at the Madrid Peace conference in 1991. This was the first time the White House ever hosted an event of this nature.

By: Benjamin Kerstein/The Algemeiner
A former US State Department Middle East negotiator expressed heavy skepticism on Monday that President Donald Trump’s reportedly soon-to-be unveiled Israeli-Palestinian peace plan will accomplish anything.
“I don’t have a lot of confidence [in it],” Aaron David Miller — currently a vice president at the Washington, DC-based Woodrow Wilson think tank who worked in the past for the State Department in both Republican and Democratic administrations — told The Algemeiner.
On Monday, the The New York Times revealed what it said were leaked details of Trump’s plan, reporting that it “will not call for a two-state solution as one of its goals. … Nor will it call for a ‘fair and just solution’ for Palestinian refugees.”
Miller downplayed the report, saying, “I worked on the peace process negotiations for 20 years. I’ve never seen a degree of radio silence imposed on any effort Republican or Democrat at any level like the degree of radio silence that’s imposed on this one.”

Iran is convinced the US will pull out of the nuclear agreement. Israeli analysts do not disagree.  
By: Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
Iranian officials are saying President Donald Trump’s dismissal of Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State and his replacement by Mike Pompeo is proof that Washington is planning to quit the nuclear deal between Tehran and the Six World Powers.
In comments carried by Iranian state media, Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi said, “The United States is determined to leave the nuclear deal, and changes at the State Department were made with that goal in mind – or at least it was one of the reasons.”
Araqchi went on to warn, “If the US quits the nuclear deal, we will also quit it. We have told the Europeans that if they can’t keep the US in the deal, Iran will also leave it.”
Trump himself acknowledged that the reason behind Tillerson’s dismissal was his support for the 2015 nuclear deal. The president’s choice for replacement, Mike Pompeo, holds views on the nuclear deal that are much closer to those of Trump. Pompeo has spoken out against the agreement as a congressman as well as during his service as CIA chief.
In January, Trump extended a waiver on nuclear sanctions that were imposed on Iran but made clear that it was the last time he would do so. He also ordered European allies and Congress to work with him to fix “the disastrous flaws,” saying that otherwise, Washington will withdraw in May.

Egypt’s president ‘ready to don combat fatigues’ and join fight against terrorists

By: AP and World Israel News Staff
Up for re-election in less than two weeks, Egypt’s president on Thursday took center stage at a televised ceremony commemorating the country’s martyrs, declaring his readiness to personally join the war against Islamic terror.
“I swear by God that I am ready to don combat fatigues and fight side by side” with the security forces, said Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi, a general-turned-president. “We either live together or die together,” he added.
Al-Sisi has yet to do any traditional campaigning for the March 26-28 election, such as addressing rallies or doing TV ads. With his win all but certain, he has apparently opted instead for televised appearances — Thursday’s ceremony lasted about five hours — in which he presides over official functions during which he addresses the nation.
With the outcome of the election a foregone conclusion — Al-Sisi’s only challenger is a little-known politician who supports him — he and his supporters have been tirelessly urging voters to come out and cast their ballots since a high turnout will accord the vote legitimacy.
In comments made Wednesday, he said he would rather win a third of the vote with a good turnout than every vote with a low turnout. A good turnout would contribute to Egypt’s stability and freedom, he said. Voting for Egyptian expatriates begins Friday.

Palestinian UN agency scours EU for funding after US pull out

The US slashed UNRWA funding in response to Palestinian anti-US positions, and the UN agency has so far failed to replace the funds.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
A global conference asking donor countries to increase their aid to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) is to take place in Rome on Thursday, co-hosted by Sweden, Egypt and Jordan. The Palestinian aid agency is facing an immediate crisis as the United States drastically decreased its funding from $360 million to $60 million this year, which is nearly 40% of the total UNRWA budget.
The Trump administration downsized its contribution due to its belief that there should be more equitable sharing of the aid burden with other countries, and that the organization needs to enact reforms. The president has also been angered by the rejection of the Palestinian Authority (PA) of his administration’s efforts in the peace process, saying in January in Davos that the US would only continue sending aid money if the Palestinians returned to the negotiating table.

Israel averted a political crisis, and Netanyahu’s government will continue to lead for the time being, although some coalition partners may still bolt the coalition. 
By: World Israel News Staff
TPS contributed to this report.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday morning found a solution to a political crisis that threatened to bring down his government and take Israel to early elections.
Members of the coalition have been quarreling over whether to extend military draft exemptions afforded to ultra-Orthodox men. The ultra-Orthodox United Torah Judaism and Shas parties said they would not vote for the 2019 budget without the draft exemptions, while Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, head of the Yisrael Beiteinu party, a key secular partner, has vowed to bolt the coalition if the budget does not pass within the next few weeks.
Netanyahu agreed to extend the IDF draft exemptions. Yisrael Beiteinu said it will vote against the proposed solution, but Netanyahu still has the required 61 votes to pass the bill. Netanyahu, however, has said he prefers not to have such a narrow coalition.
On Monday morning, the Ministerial Committee on Legislation voted in favor of the bill, setting it on the path towards its first reading at the Knesset plenum and ultimately becoming law.
Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit, however, is reported to oppose the bill because it does not meet legal requirements in its current wording, which aims for an annual quota for haredi enlistment in the IDF and national service at 3,800 people a year but does not spell out penalties or sanctions if the quotas are not me.
In addition, Orthodox parties want to expand the process for reviewing the quota system to every five years, up from the current standard of every year or two. Under current legislation, if the Haredi world fails to meet agreed-upon quotas, the draft exemption law could be voided and thousands of yeshiva (religious seminary) students could theoretically be drafted.
“The new draft of the ‘draft-dodging bill’ is an insult to the IDF and an insult to enlistees. According to this draft, the haredim will enlist if they want to. If they don’t want to, they won’t come. This is a national shame,” Yair Lapid, head of the Yesh Atid party, stated on Facebook.
While legal experts say the law may have some flaws, coalition members have said they will iron out the issue, thus ensuring that all parties in question are satisfied.

Paraguay and Honduras ready ‘in principle’ to move embassies to Jerusalem

Paraguay and Honduras will move their embassies to Jerusalem if  Netanyahu visits their countries.
By: JNS.org
Following on the heels of the US and Guatemala, Paraguay and Honduras have announced that they are ready “in principle” to relocate their embassies from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, according to IDF Radio.
The countries have conditioned their moves on an official visit to their countries by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Netanyahu visited Latin America in September, but did not stop in Paraguay. During Netanyahu’s trip, President Horacio Cartes traveled to Buenos Aires to meet with the Israeli leader.
At the recent AIPAC Policy Conference, President Jimmy Morales announced that Guatemala would move its embassy to Jerusalem “two days after the United States moves its embassy,” tentatively scheduled for May 14.
In December, following the announcement that the United States would move its embassy and officially recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the UN General Assembly voted to condemn America’s announcement. The nine countries to vote against the condemnation were Israel, the US, Honduras, Guatemala, the Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau and Togo. Paraguay was one of 35 countries to abstain, while another 21 did not participate in the vote.
President Milos Zeman has also expressed his desire to move the Czech Republic’s embassy to Jerusalem.

By: Jonathan S. Tobin, editor-in-chief, JNS
It turns out that in some cases, the Trump administration can behave just like its predecessors.
President Donald Trump has been rightly accused of smashing precedents as the commander-in-chief, and many of his subordinates have behaved, spoken and tweeted in ways unlike anything we’ve seen before.
Some of this unorthodox behavior is indeed troubling. But other decisions, including  his willingness to buck the foreign-policy establishment on issues like the status of Jerusalem and trying to hold the Palestinian Authority responsible for its support of terrorism, have been a long overdue breath of fresh air.

Palestinians reject US invitation to discuss Gaza humanitarian crisis

Palestinians reject US invitation to discuss Gaza humanitarian crisisSenior PLO official Ahmad Majdalani (Fars news)
The Palestinian leadership chose to resort to politicking instead of joining the US to address the dire situation in Gaza. 
By: JNS.org
The Palestinian Authority (PA) has announced its intention to boycott an upcoming conference at the White House to discuss the worsening humanitarian situation in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.
Approximately two million Arabs live in the densely populated strip to the south of Israel’s Mediterranean coastline.  The strip, while not recognized as an independent state, is cutoff both from Israel and neighboring Egypt. Gazans receive funding from the Palestinian Authority, which does not control the strip. Several countries provide Gaza with relief aid, yet Hamas often diverts the funds to build terror infrastructure to attack Israel, including rockets and tunnels.
In recent months, the PA has withheld funding for electricity in Gaza. Hamas in turn has refused to use electricity to operate Gaza’s waste treatment facility. Yet the PA has laid blame for the crisis on Israel.
“The United States knows very well that the cause of the tragedy of the Gaza Strip is the unjust Israeli siege, and what is needed is political treatment of this issue,” said Ahmad Majdalani, an advisor to Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and a member of the Palestinian Liberation Organization’s (PLO) executive committee member, on Voice of Palestine radio.
Majdalani accused the US of using the conference to “liquidate the Palestinian national project,” adding that the US had no real concern for the residents of Gaza.
The Palestinian leadership has refused to engage the US administration, since President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in December.

UN hypocrisy: Pro-women’s rights and pro-Hamas?(UNRWA/Twitter)
If UNRWA is a champion of “gender equality,” how does it explain the fact that its staff filled with members of the misogynistic Hamas?
By: World Israel News Staff
UN Watch, a Geneva-based NGO that monitors the UN, slammed the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) on Twitter Sunday for its apparent hypocrisy on the issue of women’s rights, The Algemeiner reported.
“In 2017, over 80,000 Palestine refugee community members were engaged in awareness-raising on gender equality and Gender Based Violence through various UNRWA-run activities,” the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA) tweeted on Sunday.
The tweet included a photo of a woman and two men, all smiling, with a map of “Palestine” on the wall covered with a woman’s image.
UN Watch responded on the social media platform: “If you care about ‘gender equality,’ why is your staff filled with members of the misogynistic Hamas? Also: If you support peace, why does your map in this photo erase Israel?”

Macedonia marks 75th anniversary of Jewish deportations in Holocaust

Macedonia marks 75th anniversary of Jewish deportations in HolocaustThe deportation of the Jews of Macedonia. (Screenshot)
Macedonia marked seven and a half decades since the Nazis deported the country’s Jews to their deaths. Only two percent survived. 
By: AP
Thousands of people marched in southern Macedonia on Sunday to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the deportation and eventual death of almost the country’s entire Jewish population during the Holocaust.
Public officials, civic group representatives and relatives of former Macedonian Jews who came from Israel, Latin America and the US participated in the event in Bitola and lay flowers and wreaths at a Menorah Jewish monument.
Macedonia was a province of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia when it was occupied by Germany during World War II and then turned over to the Nazis’ Bulgarian allies to run. More than 7,000 Jews from the cities of Skopje, Bitola and Stip were confined to ghettos in March 1943 before being deported to the Nazis’ Treblinka death camp in Poland. Ninety-eight percent of Macedonia’s Jews perished there. Bitola lost its entire Jewish community of 3,144.
The International March of the Living, the official name of the commemoration, started in front of the monument to deported Jews, with wailing sirens signaling the start. People joined in the march along the same route that Jews were forced to take 75 years ago to the train station, where they were jammed into freight cars for the trip to the death camp.

Poll shows early elections would strengthen Netanyahu and Likud

Poll shows early elections would strengthen Netanyahu and LikudPrime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (Miriam Alster/Flash90)
The government coalition is still immersed in conflict, and early elections could still be in the offing as the prime minister, beleagured by corruption allegations, may seek public mandate to continue in office.
By Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
Government ministers Naftali Bennett and Ayelet Shaked of the Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) Party, Minister Aryeh Deri of the ultra-Orthodox Shas, Knesset member Moshe Gafni of the United Torah Judaism party and Attorney General Avichai Mendleblit huddled on Thursday to come up with a plan to prevent a government collapse ahead of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s return on Friday from the US.
The coalition members say they want to head off early elections amid the bitter coalition fight over the state budget and a bill that would grant military service exemptions to ultra-Orthodox students.
Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon, leader of the Kulanu party, is still threatening to quit his post if the 2019 budget is not passed before the start of the Knesset Passover break, due to begin at the end of next week. Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, who heads Yisrael Beiteinu, insists that his party will not bend to the demands of his ultra-Orthodox coalition partners.
For his part, Netanyahu told reporters in Washington, “I want to come to an agreement that will enable the government to fulfill its term until November 2019, but at the present time I can’t say that this goal is achievable.”

By: AP and World Israel News Staff
Russian President Vladimir Putin says he doesn’t care about alleged Russian interference in the US presidential election because the actions weren’t connected to his government.
In an interview with American broadcaster NBC News that aired Saturday, Putin also suggested that some of the 13 Russian nationals indicted by the US may not be ethnically Russian.
“Maybe they are not even Russians, but Ukrainians, Tatars or Jews, but with Russian citizenship, which should also be checked,” he said.
Putin responded brusquely when interviewer Megyn Kelly asked if he condoned the interference that was alleged in last month’s US indictment by special counsel Robert Mueller.
“It’s all the same to me. To me it absolutely makes no difference because they do not represent the government,” Putin answered, according to the Russian-language interview transcript posted Saturday by the Kremlin.

By: Adina Katz, World Israel News
Amid the heated debate over the state budget and a bill that would grant IDF service exemptions to ultra-Orthodox students of Talmudic studies, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his coalition partners are negotiating Saturday night in a last-ditch attempt to prevent early elections.
The prime minister reportedly told his coalition members that he wants his government to complete its full term in November 2019, and if not, elections should be held immediately.
The ultra-Orthodox Knesset members have threatened not to vote in favor of the budget if draft exemptions for their constituencies are not met to their satisfaction. Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon has said his Kulanu party will leave the coalition if the budget does not pass in the next few weeks.
Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, who heads Yisrael Beiteinu, insists that his party will not bend to the demands of his ultra-Orthodox coalition partners.
“In life, there are moments in which you have to go with what you believe and not what pays. This is that moment,” he stated.
“The bill being put together now is not a compromise, but a surrender to blackmail,” Liberman wrote on Twitter. “Whoever wants to surrender to blackmail, can surrender.
Speaking Wednesday at the Economic Club in Washington, he said, “If all parties in this coalition … agree that’s what we do, and if not, then we will go to elections now.”

In a dramatic turn of events, Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump are set to meet in May for talks on nuclear disarmament.
By: Foster Klug, AP
SOEUL, South Korea – North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump plan to meet in May for nuclear disarmament talks, a whiplash development that would put two leaders who’ve repeatedly insulted, threatened and dismissed each other in the same room, possibly in the North Korean capital of Pyongyang.
It would have been an unthinkable suggestion just a few months ago, when the insults were at their peak — Trump was a “senile dotard” and Kim was “Little Rocket Man” — and the North was snapping off regular weapons tests in a dogged march toward its goal of a viable nuclear arsenal that could threaten the US mainland.
Liberal South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who some believe has maneuvered the two leaders to this position, reflected the hope and relief many there feel about the planned summit when he declared Friday that it will be a “historical milestone” that will put the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula “really on track.”

Preparing for Abbas’ demise, the PLO has elected an interim successor, who is expected to carry on his legacy. 
By: World Israel News Staff
Amid rumors of the deteriorating health of Palestinian Authority (PA) head Mahmoud Abbas, the PLO Central Council announced earlier this week that in the event that Abbas could no longer carry out his duties, he would be replaced by his deputy, Mahmoud al-Aloul.
According to the decision, in the event of Abbas’ absence, al-Aloul will be appointed to the post for a period of three months until elections are held.
Al-Aloul, 68, the former governor of the PA’s Shechem (Nablus) district, was elected to the Fatah Central Committee in August 2009 and was appointed as Abbas’ deputy in February of last year.
Abbas’ ailing health has long been a source of speculation.
Last month, he underwent what his aides called “routine checkups” in a US hospital. Despite his aides claiming that the results were “positive and reassuring,” other sources have indicated that his health has suffered a “major setback” in recent weeks.

Authorities said additional charges also are pending against the teen as a suspect in the raising of the Islamic State (ISIS) terror group’s flag on a pole at another Utah high school last month just after the Florida mass school shooting that was followed by numerous other threats to schools around the US.

Fifty-two lawmakers supported the bill, introduced by Member of Knesset (MK) Elazar Stern, which would deduct welfare payments paid out by the PA to Palestinian prisoners and their relatives from tax revenues Israel transfers annually to the PA. Only 10 lawmakers voted against the legislation.
Israel collects an estimated $2.1 billion in tax revenues for the PA, in accordance with the 1994 Paris Protocol, which governs economic relations with the PA, including import taxes on goods passing through Israel to the Palestinians.

Israeli residents in southern Israel, and especially those in the communities around the Gaza Strip, are angered and concerned about the prolonged cellphone outages they have been experiencing as a result of Egyptian efforts to fight terrorists in the Sinai Peninsula.
All cellphone providers have been affected, and on Wednesday, Gadi Yarkoni, head of the Eshkol Regional Council that borders Gaza, sent a warning letter threatening to sue if the problem isn’t fixed.
“Lack of response and failure to deal with the malfunction so far by the cellular companies and the Ministry of Communications shows scorn for the residents of the Gaza vicinity who are carrying on their daily routine under constant security threat,” the letter noted. “Disruptions in communications here in the area are life-threatening.”
The electronic warfare is reaching further than the Eshkol region, however.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held emergency negotiations with key coalition partners on Sunday in hopes of averting a crisis that has threatened to plunge the country into early elections.
The political tremor comes as the prime minister battles a slew of corruption allegations over accepting gifts from billionaire friends and claims that he unlawfully engineered favorable media coverage for himself and his family.
The country’s attorney general is currently examining whether to indict Netanyahu in two separate cases. But Netanyahu has seen his fortunes improve in recent polls, with his base appearing to rally behind him amid the mounting graft accusations. The long-serving Israeli leader could hope for a successful run in early elections as way to cement his political legitimacy in the face of the scandals.
Members of Netanyahu’s government have been quarreling over whether to extend military draft exemptions afforded to ultra-Orthodox men. His religious partners say they will not vote for the 2019 budget without the draft exemptions, while a key secular partner has vowed to bolt the coalition if the budget isn’t passed soon.

By Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
Polish Chief Rabbi Michael Schudrich has had a tough several weeks. The spiritual leader of a Jewish community literally ‘growing from the ashes’ was thrust into the middle of a major and nasty diplomatic battle between the governments of Israel and Poland. The new Polish ‘Holocaust Law’ made it illegal to publicly attribute the crimes of Nazi Germany to the Polish nation, also forbidding use of the term “Polish death camp” to describe the death camps where Jews and others were murdered in Nazi-occupied Poland during World War II.
Jewish and Israeli leaders as well as historians and Holocaust survivors have railed against the Polish law, insisting that many thousands of Poles murdered Jews during the Holocaust, without being forced to do so by the Nazi occupiers. They did so because of self-interest and deep-seated anti-Semitism.

Walaa Al-Battat is one such expert at incitement, having hosted children’s shows in which she calls Israelis “barbarians” who “try to kill people for no reason.” Hosting a TV show on February 9th called Who is the Judge, which was translated by PMW, she said, “The ‘occupation government’ (the common PA euphemism for Israel), which claims it is democratic … has built itself on the bodies of children, and it still murders, imprisons, and tortures them with the most extreme types of torture.”

By: World Israel News Staff
Two Palestinian terrorists attempted to blow up a military court in Samaria on Sunday, but Israeli forces securing the compound were successful in thwarting the attack.
The terrorists arrived at a checkpoint near the courthouse, where a border policeman noticed their suspicious behavior and alerted a patrol at the scene.
When the two suspects were approached they began to flee, while each discarded a pipe bomb.
The terrorists were arrested and taken for questioning.
The court was briefly shut down, while sappers were alerted to the scene and safely dismantled the explosive charges.
The suspects were also found to be carrying a lighter, with which police suspect they intended to ignite the bombs.

Poll shows early elections would strengthen Netanyahu and Likud

Poll shows early elections would strengthen Netanyahu and LikudPrime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (Miriam Alster/Flash90)
The government coalition is still immersed in conflict, and early elections could still be in the offing as the prime minister, beleagured by corruption allegations, may seek public mandate to continue in office.
By Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
Government ministers Naftali Bennett and Ayelet Shaked of the Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) Party, Minister Aryeh Deri of the ultra-Orthodox Shas, Knesset member Moshe Gafni of the United Torah Judaism party and Attorney General Avichai Mendleblit huddled on Thursday to come up with a plan to prevent a government collapse ahead of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s return on Friday from the US.
The coalition members say they want to head off early elections amid the bitter coalition fight over the state budget and a bill that would grant military service exemptions to ultra-Orthodox students.
Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon, leader of the Kulanu party, is still threatening to quit his post if the 2019 budget is not passed before the start of the Knesset Passover break, due to begin at the end of next week. Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, who heads Yisrael Beiteinu, insists that his party will not bend to the demands of his ultra-Orthodox coalition partners.
For his part, Netanyahu told reporters in Washington, “I want to come to an agreement that will enable the government to fulfill its term until November 2019, but at the present time I can’t say that this goal is achievable.”

‘Maybe they are not even Russians, but Ukrainians, Tatars or Jews, but with Russian citizenship, which should also be checked,’ Putin said regarding alleged Russian interference in the US election.
By: AP and World Israel News Staff
Russian President Vladimir Putin says he doesn’t care about alleged Russian interference in the US presidential election because the actions weren’t connected to his government.
In an interview with American broadcaster NBC News that aired Saturday, Putin also suggested that some of the 13 Russian nationals indicted by the US may not be ethnically Russian.
“Maybe they are not even Russians, but Ukrainians, Tatars or Jews, but with Russian citizenship, which should also be checked,” he said.
Putin responded brusquely when interviewer Megyn Kelly asked if he condoned the interference that was alleged in last month’s US indictment by special counsel Robert Mueller.
“It’s all the same to me. To me it absolutely makes no difference because they do not represent the government,” Putin answered, according to the Russian-language interview transcript posted Saturday by the Kremlin.

By: Adina Katz, World Israel News
Amid the heated debate over the state budget and a bill that would grant IDF service exemptions to ultra-Orthodox students of Talmudic studies, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his coalition partners are negotiating Saturday night in a last-ditch attempt to prevent early elections.
The prime minister reportedly told his coalition members that he wants his government to complete its full term in November 2019, and if not, elections should be held immediately.
The ultra-Orthodox Knesset members have threatened not to vote in favor of the budget if draft exemptions for their constituencies are not met to their satisfaction. Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon has said his Kulanu party will leave the coalition if the budget does not pass in the next few weeks.
Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, who heads Yisrael Beiteinu, insists that his party will not bend to the demands of his ultra-Orthodox coalition partners.
“In life, there are moments in which you have to go with what you believe and not what pays. This is that moment,” he stated.
“The bill being put together now is not a compromise, but a surrender to blackmail,” Liberman wrote on Twitter. “Whoever wants to surrender to blackmail, can surrender.
Speaking Wednesday at the Economic Club in Washington, he said, “If all parties in this coalition … agree that’s what we do, and if not, then we will go to elections now.”

In a dramatic turn of events, Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump are set to meet in May for talks on nuclear disarmament.
By: Foster Klug, AP
SOEUL, South Korea – North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump plan to meet in May for nuclear disarmament talks, a whiplash development that would put two leaders who’ve repeatedly insulted, threatened and dismissed each other in the same room, possibly in the North Korean capital of Pyongyang.
It would have been an unthinkable suggestion just a few months ago, when the insults were at their peak — Trump was a “senile dotard” and Kim was “Little Rocket Man” — and the North was snapping off regular weapons tests in a dogged march toward its goal of a viable nuclear arsenal that could threaten the US mainland.
Liberal South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who some believe has maneuvered the two leaders to this position, reflected the hope and relief many there feel about the planned summit when he declared Friday that it will be a “historical milestone” that will put the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula “really on track.”

Amid rumors of Abbas’ deteriorating health, PLO appoints successor

Amid rumors of Abbas’ deteriorating health, PLO appoints successor  Senior Palestinian official Mahmoud al-Aloul. (Arab Media)
Preparing for Abbas’ demise, the PLO has elected an interim successor, who is expected to carry on his legacy. 
By: World Israel News Staff
Amid rumors of the deteriorating health of Palestinian Authority (PA) head Mahmoud Abbas, the PLO Central Council announced earlier this week that in the event that Abbas could no longer carry out his duties, he would be replaced by his deputy, Mahmoud al-Aloul.
According to the decision, in the event of Abbas’ absence, al-Aloul will be appointed to the post for a period of three months until elections are held.
Al-Aloul, 68, the former governor of the PA’s Shechem (Nablus) district, was elected to the Fatah Central Committee in August 2009 and was appointed as Abbas’ deputy in February of last year.
Abbas’ ailing health has long been a source of speculation.
Last month, he underwent what his aides called “routine checkups” in a US hospital. Despite his aides claiming that the results were “positive and reassuring,” other sources have indicated that his health has suffered a “major setback” in recent weeks.

A teenage student at a southern Utah high school has been charged with bringing a homemade bomb to school after it was discovered in a backpack emitting smoke and prompted an evacuation, police said Tuesday.
The boy was arrested Monday night after Pine View High School in the city of St. George was evacuated for two hours that afternoon while the FBI and a bomb squad investigated. Police declined to identify the arrested teen or give his age.
Authorities said additional charges also are pending against the teen as a suspect in the raising of the Islamic State (ISIS) terror group’s flag on a pole at another Utah high school last month just after the Florida mass school shooting that was followed by numerous other threats to schools around the US.

By: World Israel News Staff
A bill that would slash funding to the Palestinian Authority (PA) according to the sum the PA pays out to convicted terrorists and their families was approved in its first reading by the Knesset plenum on Monday.
Fifty-two lawmakers supported the bill, introduced by Member of Knesset (MK) Elazar Stern, which would deduct welfare payments paid out by the PA to Palestinian prisoners and their relatives from tax revenues Israel transfers annually to the PA. Only 10 lawmakers voted against the legislation.
Israel collects an estimated $2.1 billion in tax revenues for the PA, in accordance with the 1994 Paris Protocol, which governs economic relations with the PA, including import taxes on goods passing through Israel to the Palestinians.

Cairo’s latest push against Islamic terrorists in the Sinai has meant two weeks of cellphone outages for residents of Israel.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Israeli residents in southern Israel, and especially those in the communities around the Gaza Strip, are angered and concerned about the prolonged cellphone outages they have been experiencing as a result of Egyptian efforts to fight terrorists in the Sinai Peninsula.
All cellphone providers have been affected, and on Wednesday, Gadi Yarkoni, head of the Eshkol Regional Council that borders Gaza, sent a warning letter threatening to sue if the problem isn’t fixed.
“Lack of response and failure to deal with the malfunction so far by the cellular companies and the Ministry of Communications shows scorn for the residents of the Gaza vicinity who are carrying on their daily routine under constant security threat,” the letter noted. “Disruptions in communications here in the area are life-threatening.”
The electronic warfare is reaching further than the Eshkol region, however.

According to a Wednesday report in the London-based Arab newspaper Al-Araby Al-Jadeed, he also met there with senior Israeli officials.

The broad theme of the meeting was the normalization of ties between the two countries, said the paper, which have yet to recognize each other or have open diplomatic relations. Saudi Arabia’s support for the peace plan that U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration is putting together was also discussed, notwithstanding the fact that the plan’s details have not officially been revealed.

By: World Israel News Staff
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated that a two-state solution to the conflict with the Palestinians “doesn’t work with what we see,” while stressing the key component of Israel’s security any such deal.
After his meeting at the White House with President Donald Trump and ahead of his address on Tuesday at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) Conference, Netanyahu sat with several American reporters on Monday in the president’s official guest house and took questions.
When asked about Trump’s peace proposal, which has so far been shrouded in secrecy with regard to specifics, Netanyahu said he “did not see a draft” during his meeting with Trump and would not say whether he has seen a draft before, NPR reported.
When asked if he believed in the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Netanyahu said, “I haven’t named it. But I’ve defined it,” meaning that he did support such a solution, which specifics he defined in his 2009 speech at Bar Ilan University.

By: World Israel News Staff
Speaking to reporters in Washington after meeting with US President Donald Trump on Monday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Saudi Arabia is permitting Air India to use its airspace for direct flights from Mumbai to Tel Aviv.
Reports from Israel last month indicated that Saudi Arabia had given its approval for Air India to use its airspace. This would save passengers over two hours of flying time, as opposed to the route that Israel’s airline, El Al, must take to avoid the Arab state, which still has no official diplomatic relations with Israel.
Neither the Saudis nor Air India has confirmed whether permission has been granted.

Almost half of Israel’s Arab minority doesn’t recognize the country’s right to exist, according to the University of Haifa’s Index of Arab-Jewish Relations for 2017, released on Wednesday.
By: TPS
The study found a sharp deterioration in the attitudes of Arab and Jews in Israel toward coexistence, but despite the negative findings most Jews and Arabs remained willing to maintain a joint society.
According to the poll, the number of Arabs who recognize Israel’s right to exist fell to 58.7% compared to 65.8% in 2015, while the acceptance rate among Arabs of Israel as a state with a Jewish majority plummeted from 60.3% in 2015 to 44.6%. The number of Arabs recognizing the legitimacy of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state dropped from 53.6% to 49.1%.
At the same time, the poll showed a worsening of Jewish attitudes toward the Arab minority. In 2015, 79.7% of Jews recognized the right of Arabs to live in the state as a minority with full civil rights, but in this year’s poll, the number dropped to 73.8%. The percentage of Jews recognizing the status of the Arabs as a minority with full civil rights in a Jewish and democratic state dropped from 74.9% to 68.1%, and the percentage of Jews who accept Arabs as full members of Israeli society declined from 69.5% to 61.1%.

Israel voluntarily got rid of the settlements there, the Israeli soldiers dragged the settlers out of Netzarim, and three weeks later the Palestinians threw rockets into Sderot. It’s sure not the settlements that are the blockage to peace.”

The Palestinian government denounced Guatemala’s decision to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in May, two days after the US moves its own embassy.
Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales told the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference in Washington on Sunday that “under my instructions, two days after the United States moves its embassy, Guatemala will return and permanently move its embassy to Jerusalem.”
The US said it will start the process of moving its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on May 14, when Israel marks its 70th Independence Day.
“As a sovereign decision, we recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel,” Morales stated.
Responding the next day to Morales’ announcement, the Palestinian cabinet called on “Arab and Islamic nations to take a firm stand against this move,” which the Palestinians claim “violates international law and principles as well as United Nations resolutions.”

Political tensions mount as IDF draft law threatens coalition’s stability
 March 5, 2018
Is Israel facing early elections? 
By: Yona Schnitzer/TPS and World Israel News Staff
A brewing coalition crisis appeared to deepen Monday morning when Member of Knesset Yaacov Litzman, head of the ultra-Orthodox United Torah Judaism political party, threatened to vote against the proposed 2019 budget if the government fails to pass a law that would exempt ultra-Orthodox yeshiva students from service in the IDF.
“If the draft law passes, there will be a budget, and if not, we will vote against the budget,” Litzman said in an interview with IDF Radio on Sunday.
Litzman said that the draft exemption was a cornerstone of the coalition agreement and that as a representative of Moezet Gdolei Hatorah – the supreme rabbinical policy-making council that dictates the UTJ party line  –  he had no choice but to make sure it was implemented. “I am a Member of Knesset (MK) on their behalf, I have to [follow their orders] down to the last comma,” Litzman said.

President Trump suggested that he may attend the inauguration of the US’ new embassy in Jerusalem, which is slated to occur in May.
By: AP
President Donald Trump says he may visit Israel in May for the opening of a new US Embassy in Jerusalem. Trump commented during an Oval Office meeting Monday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The new embassy is set to open in May, and Trump says he’ll head to Israel for the dedication ceremony “if I can.”
A ribbon-cutting for an interim facility is being planned to coincide with the 70th anniversary of Israel’s independence. Trump also said his embassy decision was “appreciated in a big part of the world.”
Netanyahu arrived at the White House on Monday for meetings with Trump. The two are holding talks and sitting down to a working lunch before Netanyahu speaks later in the week at the annual conference of the pro-Israel group, AIPAC.
The visit comes as Israelis and Palestinians await Trump’s Mideast peace plan, which has yet to arrive.

On Monday, President Donald Trump welcomed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to the White House, where the two met in the Oval Office and shared a working lunch.
Netanyahu began his comments by placing Trump’s historic recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in the context of the Jewish people’s history. “The Jewish people have a long memory, so we remember the proclamation of Cyrus the Great, Persian king, 2,500 years ago, who proclaimed that the Jews exiled in Babylon could come back and build our temples in Jerusalem. We remember 100 years ago, Lord Balfour who issued the Balfour Declaration that recognized the rights of the Jewish people in our ancestral homeland,” recalled Netanyahu.

A Polish organization filed a lawsuit against an Argentinian newspaper for using a photo of Polish soldiers to illustrate an article on the 1941 Jedwabne pogrom.
By: JNS.org and World Israel News Staff
A Polish campaign group has filed the first legal action under the new Polish “Holocaust Law” that criminalizes any suggestion that Poland took part in crimes against the Jewish people during the Holocaust.
The Polish League Against Defamation is suing Argentina’s Página/12 daily newspaper for using a photograph of Polish soldiers who fought against Communists after the war to illustrate an article on the Jedwabne pogrom of 1941, in which local Poles massacred at least 340 Jews.
“The combination of these two threads: information about the crime on Jews in Jedwabne during the German occupation and the presentation of fallen soldiers of the independence underground is manipulation, an act to the detriment of the Polish nation,” the organization said in a statement.
Página/12 claimed not to have received any legal notice, only learning of the suit through the media.

Nir Hefetz, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s former media adviser and close confidant, has turned state witness in Case 4000, which focuses on Netanyahu himself.
After over two weeks of police grilling, Hefetz agreed to become a state witness and will supposedly relay all information he possesses related to corruption allegations leveled against his former boss.
Case 4000 includes accusations that Shaul Elovitch, former owner of Israeli telecommunications giant Bezeq and current owner of the Walla! News portal, pressured his CEO, Ilan Yeshua, to arrange positive coverage of Netanyahu on Walla! in exchange for the prime minister advancing regulations that would benefit Elovitch. The regulations are worth hundreds of millions of dollars to Bezeq, of which Elovitch was, until recently, a major shareholder.

By: Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News, with additional reporting by AP
A rival pair of populist and stridently anti-European Union political forces surged in Italy’s election for Parliament, but without enough support to govern the country alone, projections showed early Monday. With the prospect of a hung Parliament looking increasingly likely, Italy faces a difficult path to the formation of a viable government. “Ungovernable Italy” headlined daily newspaper La Stampa as election results rolled in.
Speaking from Rome, former Italian parliamentarian Fiamma Nirenstein told World Israel News (WIN), “The anti-establishment Five Star party that finished first in the election is very dangerous for Israel because it is outspokenly pro-BDS and generally ignorant of any history or political balance. I expect that the right wing anti-migrant parties can band together to form a government.”

By: AP 
English Football Association chief executive Martin Glenn highlighted the Star of David among the symbols he believes breach soccer laws banning religious and political imagery, a reference that has drawn criticism from the country’s Jewish community.
The Jewish Leadership Council, which is led by a former FA executive, said Glenn’s comment was “offensive and inappropriate” and plans to complain to the sport’s national governing body.
The Star of David, a symbol of Judaism, features on the Israeli flag which appears on national team kits and is displayed in stadiums.
Glenn, a member of the International Football Association, mentioned the Star of David while seeking to explain to reporters why the other slogans, statements or images should still be banned from being displayed on any equipment in the game.

A Lebanese actor who was charged with spying for the Mossad was framed by a former Lebanese Internal Security Forces officer. 
By: World Israel News Staff
A former Lebanese Internal Security Forces officer has falsified charges against a Lebanese actor arrested for spying for Israel, Arab media reported Saturday.
In November, Ziad Itani, a Lebanese actor and writer, was indicted on charges of collaborating with Israel and possessing drugs.
On Friday, Colonel Suzan El-Hajj, the former director of the cyber crimes bureau in the Lebanese army, was arrested as part of the investigation, Al Arabiya reported.
She was arrested for her alleged role in falsifying charges against Itani, having “used the services of a hacker to fake conversations, so as to accuse Ziad Itani of having had communications with an Israeli girl,” according to a source close to the case, Al Arabiya added.
Itani was accused of collaborating with an Israeli female spy to collect information about Lebanese politicians and journalists.
According to interrogation leaks, Itani has reportedly collaborated with a Mossad agent to gather information about political developments following Prime Minister Saad Hariri’s resignation, and specifically about an ally of the prime minister.
Itani had reportedly admitted to the charges.

Ultra-Orthodox parties push for bill that would preserve military exemption for Yeshiva students.
By Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
United Torah Judaism (UTJ), Shas and Member of Knesset Betzalel Smotrich from Habayit HaYehudi are pushing hard for a proposed basic law that would enshrine Torah study as a supreme value in the State of Israel in order to protect the right of yeshiva students not to perform military service.
Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman’s secular right-wing Yisrael Beyteinu party is threatening to break up the coalition over the bill.
The so-called ‘enlistment bill’ has been placed on the Knesset agenda, but it’s unclear when and if the legislation will be brought up for a vote.
Leading haredi (ultra-Orthodox) lawmaker Moshe Gafni has warned that his UTJ party would condition its support for the state budget on the coalition’s backing of the bill. Just as emphatically, Yisrael Beyteinu chairman Robert Ilatov demanded that the matter be shelved. To back up his statement, Ilatov warned that if the bill came to the floor, the entire five-member Yisraeli Beytienu party would vote against it, including Immigration Absorption Minister Sofa Landver, which would mean resigning from the government.

Authorities said a man shot himself in the head and died outside the White House on Saturday.
The District of Columbia Police Department said in a tweet that “adult male has been declared deceased. We are working to notify next of kin.” The man has not yet been identified.
That tweet comes about two hours after the Secret Service first reported that it was responding to reports of a self-inflicted shooting along the White House’s north fence.
“Secret Service personnel are responding to reports of a person who allegedly suffered a self-inflicted gun shot wound along the north fence line of @WhiteHouse,” the Secret Service tweeted earlier.
The incident took place before President Donald Trump’s scheduled late afternoon return to the White House from Florida. The White House says it was aware of the situation and that Trump was briefed.
The Secret Service says there were no other reported injuries.

“Canada’s Conservatives led by Andrew Scheer will recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital when we form the government in 2019,” the opposition party announced on its website.
By Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
Canada’s opposition Conservative party announced that when they return to power, they plan to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move their embassy to the city. Currently, the Liberals, led by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, are heading the government, and the next election is scheduled to take place in 2019. Trudeau has made it clear that as long as he is prime minister, the Canadian embassy will remain in Tel Aviv.
The Conservatives announced their Jerusalem policy with a post on the party website that reads: “Canada’s Conservatives recognize the obvious fact that Israel, like every other sovereign nation, has a right to determine where its capital is located.”
The statement went on to say: “Canada’s Conservatives led by Andrew Scheer will recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital when we form the government in 2019. Israel is one of Canada’s strongest allies and a beacon of pluralism and democratic principles in a turbulent part of the world.”
This was not the first time the party had promised to move the embassy. Ahead of the national election in 1979, former Prime Minister Joe Clark vowed to move the embassy but reneged on his promise after coming to power.

After hosting a gathering in honor of convicted terrorist Rasmeah Odeh, the Verrekijker Center was abruptly closed down by the Vrije Universiteit (VU) in Amsterdam, the institution announced on Wednesday.
The fact that Odeh is a convicted Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) terrorist who was jailed for 10 years in Israel for her part in a 1969 bombing of a Jerusalem supermarket that killed two people was not the reason given for the action, however. Neither was her continued open virulent opposition to the Jewish state.
“The VU makes this drastic decision after a secret meeting took place in the Verrekijker Center on Tuesday evening, 27 February,” said the university in a statement. “The collective [in charge of the center] intentionally did not notify the VU, despite agreements made about this.”

Iran has built another military base outside of Damascus, complete with hangars used to store missiles capable of hitting all of Israel.
By: World Israel News Staff
Satellite images from the Israeli firm ImageSat International (ISI) obtained by Fox News show what is believed to be the new Iranian base in Syria operated by the Quds Force, the special operations arm of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).
Iran’s new base is located outside of Damascus, Syria’s capital, and houses missiles capable of hitting all of Israel, Fox News reported Tuesday, citing Western intelligence sources.
The IRGC is entrusted with Iran’s foreign espionage and sabotage activities.
The photos show two hangars, each roughly 30 yards by 20 yards, used to store short- and medium-range missiles, Fox News reported.
A base similar to the one revealed in these new satellite photos was built last year south of Damascus, before being destroyed in December, reportedly by Israeli surface-to-surface missiles.

The Duke of Cambridge, Prince William, will make an official trip to Israel, the first-ever by a member of the royal family, as part of a tour of the region this summer.
By: JNS.org
“The Duke of Cambridge will visit Israel, Jordan and the Occupied Palestinian Territories in the Summer,” Kensington Palace‏ said on Twitter.
“The visit is at the request of Her Majesty’s Government and has been welcomed by the Israeli, Jordanian and Palestinian authorities,” the statement added.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the visit by William, who is second in line for the throne, would be “historic.”
“We welcome the announcement of Prince William’s visit to Israel. This is an historic visit, the first of its kind, and he will be welcomed here with great affection. I have instructed the Foreign Ministry Director General to coordinate the preparations for the visit to ensure its success.”
Similarly, President Reuven Rivlin, who has issued several invitations to the royal family to come to Israel, said he was “happy” to hear of their planned visit. “A very special guest, and a very special present for our 70th year of independence,” Rivlin said on Twitter.
Despite the United Kingdom being one of Israel’s top allies in Europe, the royal family has never made an official trip to Israel, which has long angered Israeli leaders, with reports suggesting the royals have wanted to avoid upsetting its Arab allies.
However, with Israel’s ties with the Arab world warming in recent years, the visit by William may be a sign that this may no longer be a concern.
Nevertheless, Prince Charles has visited Israel on unofficial trips, attending the funerals of both Shimon Peres in 2016 and Yitzhak Rabin in 1994. His father, Prince Philip, also visited Israel in 1994 to attend a ceremony commemorating his mother, Alice of Battenberg, who is buried on Jerusalem’s Mount of Olives

US ambassador Nikki Haley criticized the UN for allowing Iran’s justice minister, a human rights violator, to assail the US at the UN Human Rights Council.
By: AP
Iran’s justice minister, a sanctioned human rights violator, unapologetically took the podium at the UN’s top human rights body Tuesday to berate US and Saudi policies, defying calls for him to stay away in a visit a top US diplomat said made a “mockery” of the body.
Justice Minister Alireza Avaei’s visit has been criticized because he’s faced EU sanctions for six years for his role in arbitrary arrests, denying prisoners’ rights, and increasing executions in Iran. Switzerland, which hosts a key UN office and the council, has also handed him economic sanctions — but not banned him from visiting.
UN Geneva spokeswoman Alessandra Vellucci said Avaei did not face any UN sanctions.
That did not deter other critics of Avaei’s visit. He was on hand Tuesday for the council’s “high-level segment”, a highlight to its March session, which this year is bringing together nearly 100 dignitaries — including many ministers and a few heads of state.

Adalah (‘Justice’ in Arabic), a Palestinian “human rights” group based in Israel, says it “only helps the Palestinians who are suing the State of Israel.”
By: Judith Bergman, MIDA
The numerous foreign funded “human rights” organizations who operate in Israel do not actually care about human rights. In fact, recent events have shown that they do not seem to care about human beings as such, either. Instead, they are what most Israelis have always suspected them of being, namely political actors, who have organized themselves cleverly in benign sounding “rights” organizations in order to better pursue their nefarious agendas of destroying the state of Israel through “lawfare.”
Last summer, the Jerusalem District Court determined that the Palestinian Authority (PA) was responsible for the kidnapping, torture and murder of dozens of suspected Arab “collaborators” within Israel, several of them with Israeli citizenship, between 1995 and 2002. The court proceedings unveiled grueling testimonies of Arabs who had been subjected to the most heinous torture in the cellars of the PA’s detention centers.
The PA naturally denied all allegations, but the presiding judge ruled that the accumulation of evidence made it clear that the PA was guilty of severe torture, as well as murder. The torture included the so-called shabah position — widely used in PA prisons — in which the victim is hung from the ceiling for several hours and beaten all over his body.
According to the verdict, the torture also included electric shocks, the pouring of boiling plastic on the body, tearing out nails and breaking teeth, sterilization, sleep deprivation, food and drink deprivation, sexual assault and the rape of family members. The PA also asked doctors to worsen the conditions of the prisoners, such as injecting urine into the prisoners’ blood veins.
The verdict concluded that the PA is responsible for the torture and therefore liable for damages to the victims, whose lives it ruined. However, in order to realize the compensation, the victims need to provide medical evaluations of their conditions by medical experts, which is a very costly procedure.

A former Washington, D.C. cop, who embraced both neo-Nazi and radical Islamist ideology, was sent to prison for 15 years for supporting ISIS.
By: AP
A former transit-agency police officer was sentenced to 15 years in prison Friday after being convicted in a sting operation of attempting to help the Islamic State (ISIS) terror group.
Nicholas Young, 38, of Fairfax, Virginia, became the first law-enforcement officer in the country to be convicted of a terrorism offense when a federal jury found him guilty in December on charges including obstruction of justice and attempting to provide material support to a terrorist group.
Young had been a patrol officer in the D.C. region’s Metrorail system and was known as “Officer Friendly” at the Takoma Park station where he was assigned.
The Muslim convert had been under surveillance going back at least as far as 2010. He was friends with Zachary Chesser, another convert who was sentenced to 25 years in prison for trying to join the al-Shabab terrorist group in Somalia and for making threats against the creators of the “South Park” cartoon series for episodes he deemed insulting to the Prophet Muhammad.

Why has there been an international uproar against Poland but virtual silence concerning similar Holocaust-related laws in other Eastern European states?
By: Daniel Krygier, Political Analyst, World Israel News
At the time of this writing, a Polish government delegation is set for talks in Israel concerning Poland’s recently drafted, controversial Holocaust law. The law has been criticized by Israel, the US and the EU for what is perceived as limiting free speech and research pertaining to atrocities committed by Poles against Jews during and after the Holocaust. However, several Eastern European states like Ukraine and Latvia have similar Holocaust-related legislation that has barely been noticed by Israel and the international community.
In fact, one could argue that the suggested Polish Holocaust-related legislation has been inspired by harsher nationalistic legislation in countries like Latvia and Lithuania. To a large degree, the Baltic states equate Nazi crimes with Communist crimes that are blamed on Jewish communists. The legislation in the Baltic states whitewashes anti-Jewish crimes committed by locals and presents Latvia and Lithuania as “pure victims.” In reality, mainly local anti-Semitic collaborators murdered entire Jewish populations in the Baltic countries.

Hebron contains the Cave of the Patriarchs, which is religiously significant to both Jews and Muslims. Palestinians regularly attempt to smuggle knives or guns in to launch attacks there, and it is guarded around the clock by the IDF.

Will senior Trump adviser Jared Kushner’s efforts to broker a deal between Israelis and Palestinians be affected by the change?
President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and top adviser Jared Kushner had his security clearance downgraded on Friday due to alleged efforts by foreign countries to influence him, according to a report in the Washington Post.
Kushner’s interim “top secret/sensitive compartmented information” clearance has been downgraded to “secret,” a White House official told the Post.
The report revealed that officials in Israel, the United Arab Emirates, China and Mexico discussed ways to utilize Kushner’s business ties and foreign-policy naiveté to their advantage, though it is unclear if any of them acted on their discussions.
Kushner’s contacts with foreign officials are currently under investigation by U.S. special counsel Robert Mueller, who has been probing Russia’s interference in the last presidential election since May 2017.

The UN Security Council is set to condemn Iran for its destabilizing actions in Yemen.
By: AP and World Israel News Staff
The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) is expected to vote Monday on a British-drafted resolution that would condemn Iran for violating a UN arms embargo by providing missiles and drones to Shiite rebels in Yemen — and commit to future action against Tehran.
Kuwait’s UN Ambassador Mansour Al-Otaiba is the current council president. He told reporters Saturday, “We are still working on the text, but the intention is to adopt it Monday morning.”
Russia’s UN Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said this week he opposed the draft, saying it should be about renewing the work of experts monitoring sanctions against Yemen, not condemning Iran.
The experts said in a January report that they’d identified Iranian missile remnants and other equipment introduced into Yemen after the 2015 arms embargo that were fired into Saudi Arabia.
Addressing a press conference in December, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley provided “undeniable” evidence that Iran is violating international law by funneling missiles to Houthi rebels in Yemen.

WATCH: The Deeper Meaning of Purim Told in Animation
In this animated version of the story of Purim, the narrator goes beyond the storyline and focuses on the deeper meaning behind the major historical events.

The story of Purim comes alive in this animated telling of the events that occurred in ancient Persia, based on the Book of Esther, which Jews around the world read each year on the festive holiday.

The narrator, however, goes beyond the telling of the story and discusses the important message behind it.

Indeed, how would you draw the line between a coincidental series of events and a miracle from God?
Was the extraordinary rescue of the entire Jewish People in the 4th Century BCE orchestrated by the Almighty, or did it all happen by chance?

Incredible Parallels Between the Purim Story and the Nazi Trials
There are uncanny parallels between the hanging of Haman’s 10 sons in the story of Purim and the hanging of 10 Nazis after the Nuremberg Trials for crimes against humanity.
The haunting connection between these two eras in Jewish history begins with a story from the Talmud in which it is explained that in the Purim story Haman’s daughter committed suicide and thus didn’t need to be hung. Similarly, following the Nuremberg Trials, Hermann Göring, a well known Nazi cross-dresser, also committed suicide and thus was not hung. In fact, Julius Streicher, the Nazi editor of the anti-Semitic Der Stürmer newspaper, even proclaimed before he was hung, “Purim Fest 1946.”
Indeed, given these facts, it appears as if there is merit to the claim that there is a connection between the Purim story and the Nuremberg Trials.

Secret Celebration: How Spanish Jews Kept Purim Under the Inquisition
Spanish Inquisition
 A Jew being tortured during the Spanish Inquisition (myjewishlearning.com)
Despite merciless persecution, Jews found a way to observe Purim during the Spanish Inquisition.
In 1391, anti-Jewish massacres swept Spain, where Jews were given the choice of converting to Christianity or being murdered. Some 20,000 Spanish Jews became Christians during this time period and many more continued to convert throughout the 1400s under duress. However, many of these Jews who were converted under the sword continued to practice Judaism in secret. This greatly disturbed the Spaniards, who saw that many closet Jews continued to be part of the top echelons of Spanish society, like they had during the Golden Age of Muslim Spain.
Thus, in 1492 Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand expelled from their kingdom the Jews who continued to practice their faith. Previously, the Spanish Inquisition was established to hunt down Jews who continued to practice their faith in secret. In total, 165,000 Jews fled Spain, with 50,000 baptized and an additional 20,000 perishing while attempting to leave Spain in 1492. Meanwhile, 31,912 “heretics” were burned at the stake in Spain, with an additional 17,659 burnt in effigy. For secret Jews, known as Anusim, Conversos or Marranos, who lived under the yoke of the Inquisition and thus were in constant fear that they would be discovered, the Purim holiday had a special meaning since Queen Esther was also forced to practice Judaism in secret initially.
For the Anusim of Spain, Portugal, and Latin America, Purim was not a festive day full of children making noise and adults consuming alcohol. If these Jews celebrated in this manner, they would be discovered by the Inquisition. Instead, the Anusim, whose very existence was always in peril, would fast for three days, just as Queen Esther fasted for three days when the Jews of Persia were threatened with annihilation.
Spanish Megillat Esther
Scroll of Esther with Spanish translation (ajudaica.com)
As a result, the Inquisition used the Fast of Esther as an indicator of Jews engaging in forbidden religious activity. Furthermore, a three day fast was not considered healthy. According to Gabriel de Granada, a 13-year-old boy interrogated by the Inquisition in Mexico in 1643, the women of his family would divide the three day fast between them. Some would fast on the first day, while others would fast on the second and third.

According to Arab media reports, the Trump administration’s peace plan includes a Palestinian state with eastern Jerusalem designated as its capital.

By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News

Quoting “knowledgeable Arab diplomatic sources” in Paris, the London-based Saudi newspaper Asharq al-Awsat reported on Wednesday that the Trump administration’s coalescing peace plan could contain several major “carrots” for the Palestinians, while not ignoring Israel’s security needs.

Other elements may include Palestinians giving up the “right of return” and putting the Old City under an “international mandate.”

Recognizing a Palestinian state with eastern Jerusalem as its capital is the biggest nod to Palestinian demands, according to the report.

The purported Trump  proposal, seemingly taken from former Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert’s offer to Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas in 2008, would dilute Israeli jurisdiction over Jerusalem even further.

According to the report, smaller, outlying Jewish villages in Judea and Samaria would be “relocated,” while the Palestinian Authority’s security and administrative control of Areas A and B would be expanded.

The inducements for Israel reportedly include retaining military control of the Jordan valley as well as security control over Judea and Samaria, including its borders. Egypt would have security control over the Gaza Strip. In addition, all large villages and towns would stay part of Israel.

Another key Israeli demand is addressed as well: The Palestinians who fled Israel in 1948 and their descendants would have no “right of return” to Israel proper. They would stay in the countries they currently live in and receive monetary compensation.

According to the Saudi paper’s sources, the US would ask the international community to help establish the new country’s institutions by collecting the whopping sum of $40 billion. The money is not intended to “buy” Palestinian acceptance of the peace plan, the diplomats stressed.

The Americans would like to present the peace plan – which has no date of delivery as yet – in the framework of an international conference that would be held in one of the Arab capitals. In order for Israelis to be able to attend easily, this would have to be either Amman or Cairo, most likely the latter.

Early reaction to the purported plan in Israel was not favorable. Leaders of the Sovereignty Movement, a Judea and Samaria activist organization, referred to the plan as “a regional disaster.”

“Netanyahu must come to his senses and make it clear to his American partners in these discussions and to his friend President Trump that an Arab state in the heart of the Land of Israel would bring disaster upon the State of Israel and would totally undermine the security and economic stability in the entire region,” commented Sovereignty Movement heads Yehudit Katsover and Nadia Matar.

Do the Poles and Eastern Europeans suffer from ‘Holocaust envy’?
 February 27, 2018
Israeli Holocaust expert says that Eastern European countries want to equate their suffering with that of the Jews.
By: Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
Former Polish Prime Minister and current President of the EU Donald Tusk says that the new law denying Polish complicity in the Holocaust is ruining the country’s international standing.
Tusk is warning his country against what he called “anti-Semitic excesses” and says that “negative opinions toward Warsaw are “turning into a tsunami.” He told current Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki that “the situation is very serious, it negatively impacts Polish interests, the reputation of Poland and Poland’s standing in the world.”
As a result of the backlash, Poland reportedly plans to send a delegation to Israel to discuss the crisis, but no solution is in sight, and the bill is due to become law on March 1. The legislation prescribes prison time for using phrases such as “Polish death camps” to refer to the camps which Nazi Germany operated in occupied Poland during World War II.
‘Media is making things worse’
Polish Chief Rabbi Michael Schudrich told World Israel News (WIN), “The media is making things worse. They are making claims and then the politicians react. For example, the Poles never said they would freeze the law but indicated they would not enforce it.

A German town has voted to keep ringing a church bell dedicated to Adolf Hitler, supposedly as a memorial to spark dialogue about violence and injustice.
By: AP and World Israel News Staff
A small town in southwestern Germany has decided to keep a church bell dedicated to Adolf Hitler ringing, but as a memorial to spark dialogue about violence and injustice.
The dpa news agency reported Tuesday the Herxheim am Berg council voted 10-3 to preserve the bell, which carries the inscription “Everything for the Fatherland – Adolf Hitler” above a Nazi swastika, as a memorial in its Protestant church.
State church authorities had offered to fund replacing the bell, which were widespread during the Nazi era but mostly removed after the war.
But a study had concluded removing it would be akin to “fleeing from an appropriate culture of remembrance” and recommended either leaving it in place with an explanatory plaque, or putting it in a museum.
The “Hitler bell” debate has been raging for months.
In September, the town’s mayor resigned following outrage over comments he made suggesting that the Nazi period wasn’t all bad.
The mayor also sparked outrage by saying he was proud of the bell and quoting a 95-year-old resident who felt the period of Nazi rule had included “good things.”

Russia has deployed advanced warplanes to Syria, satellite images taken by Israeli firm Image Sat International proved over the weekend
The Sukhoi Su-57 fighter jets were spotted stationed at the Khmeimim Air Base, a Syrian base operated by Russia southeast of the city of Latakia.
The Su-57 is a stealth, single-seat, twin-engine fighter jet. The fifth-generation warplane is the first aircraft in the Russian Air Force to use stealth technology.
The fighter reportedly has supercruise, stealth, supermaneuverability and advanced avionics to overcome prior-generation fighter aircraft as well as ground and maritime defenses. The aircraft is expected to have a service life of up to 35 years.
This poses the first confirmation that the state-of-the-art Russian jets are not only operational but in play in the civil war waged in Syria.
So far, both the Kremlin and the Russian Ministry of Defense have remained mum on the subject.

By: World Israel News Staff
Tamar Fogel and her two brothers Roi and Yishai, whose parents and three siblings were murdered in a shocking Palestinian terror attack in the Israeli community of Itamar, Samaria, seven years ago recently filed a law suit against the Palestinian Authority (PA) and the PLO for encouraging the terrorists and paying them salaries during their imprisonment.
Israel’s Yedioth Aharonoth reported Monday that the family, through a suit filed in the Jerusalem District Court, is suing the PA for NIS 400 million ($115 million) for inciting terrorism and supporting it through stipends paid to the terrorists.
“Even to this day, the terrorists are receiving inflated salaries from the Palestinian Authority, which is contrary to all logic and justice. In filing this suit, we seek to send a message in the name of anyone with a human heart,” the Fogel family said in the suit.
Two Palestinians, Hakim Awad and Amjad Awad, armed with knives broke into the Fogel family home in Itamar as they slept on Friday night. They butchered the mother Ruth, 35, father Udi, 36, and three of their children, Yoav, 11, Elad, 4, and three-month-old Hadas, as she slept in her crib. Tamar was out with her youth group during the attack.

By: World Israel News Staff
The number of anti-Semitic incidents in the US surged significantly in 2017 compared to 2016, according to new data released on Tuesday by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL).
In its latest “Audit of Anti-Semitic Incidents,” the ADL said that the number of anti-Semitic incidents was nearly 60 percent higher in 2017 than 2016, the largest single-year increase on record and the second highest number reported since ADL started tracking incidents in 1979.
The ADL said the sharp rise was in part due to a significant increase in incidents in schools and on college campuses, which nearly doubled for the second year in a row.
A total of 1,986 anti-Semitic incidents was reported by the ADL across the US in 2017, including physical assaults, vandalism, and attacks on Jewish institutions.
This figure represents a 57 percent increase over the 1,267 incidents in 2016.
Every part of the country was affected, with an incident reported in all 50 states for the first time in at least a decade, the ADL noted.

The famous Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem will reopen Wednesday while a “professional team” works on resolving a tax dispute with Israeli and municipal officials.
By: World Israel News Staff
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat agreed to establish a professional team, led by Minister for Regional Cooperation Tzachi Hanegbi, to formulate a solution for the issue of municipal taxes on properties owned by churches that are not houses of worship, Netanyahu’s media adviser said in a statement Tuesday.
A triumvirate of Christian denominations in Jerusalem closed the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in the Old City of Jerusalem on Sunday, protesting a demand by the Knesset for retroactive payment of delinquent taxes as well as City Hall’s plan to seize church properties and bank accounts in lieu of payment.
The team will negotiate with the representatives of the churches to resolve the issue.
According to the statement, negotiations are ongoing and all legislative activity on the matter will be suspended. The Church will reopen on Wednesday.
“Israel is proud to be the only country in the Middle East where Christians and believers of all faiths have full freedom of religion and worship. Israel is home to a flourishing Christian community and welcomes its Christian friends from all over the world,” the statement said.
