The IAF attacked Hamas positions in Gaza late Saturday in response to the infiltration of four Palestinians into Israeli territory.
By: World Israel News Staff
The IDF struck several Hamas targets in Gaza Saturday night in response to continued violence at the border fence and the infiltration of four Palestinians into Israeli territory.
“A short while ago, IDF troops identified 4 Palestinian suspects who infiltrated Israel from the southern Gaza Strip and set a tire on fire. IDF troops arrived at the scene and fired towards the suspects, who fled back into the Gaza Strip,” an IDF spokesman tweeted at around noon on Saturday.
“The suspects stayed in Israeli territory for about a minute. During the infiltration, the suspects hurled a firebomb that burst into flames & placed a tent with the caption- “The March of the return. Returning to the lands of Palestine,” he added in a separate tweet.
The incident occurred in the morning in a continuation of the violent Hamas-led “March of Return” protests that began March 30 at the security fence separating Israel from the Gaza Strip. The infiltrators damaged the fence.
The Israeli Air Force struck Hamas targets the southern Gaza Strip late Saturday evening.
“The IDF views with great severity the daily attempts of the Hamas terrorist organization to strike at security infrastructure in Israeli territory while threatening the security of both residents and soldiers,” read the IDF statement.

IDF soldier hit with marble slab dies; Netanyahu vows to bring terrorist to justiceStaff Sergeant Ronen Lubarsky (Courtesy Family)
Israeli PM Netanyahu vowed to capture and bring to justice the terrorist who murdered an IDF soldier by throwing a heavy marble object.
By: World Israel News Staff
An IDF soldier who was critically injured Thursday morning during a routine military operation in Ramallah has died of his wounds.
At around 5 a.m. Thursday, a force from the elite Duvdevan Unit entered a neighborhood on the outskirts of Ramallah to arrest a Palestinian terror suspect. During the operation, violent rioting erupted, with different objects being hurled at the troops.
Ronen Lubarsky, 20, was hit in the head with a heavy marble object and taken to Jerusalem’s Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital. He passed away on Saturday. The funeral was set for 2 a.m. Sunday morning at Mt. Herzl military cemetery in the capital.
“We take this incident very seriously. The evil terrorist who injured him does not know day from night. Soon we will have our hands on him – whether he is alive or dead,” Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman declared on Thursday.

Israeli technologies are in ‘great demand by the UN’Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon (World Likud)
 Print  Email  21 Comments
“Israeli companies offer top-tier technologies, services, and solutions that are in great demand by the UN,” Danon stated.
By: World Israel News Staff
This month Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations (UN) Danny Danon launched a special seminar in New York to increase business ties between Israeli companies and the UN.
Organized by Israel’s Permanent Mission to the UN and the Israeli Export Institute, the procurement seminar focused on furthering existing cooperation and building new relationships between the UN and the Israeli private sector.
“Israeli companies offer top-tier technologies, services, and solutions that are in great demand by the UN,” Danon noted at the seminar opening. “Whether it’s protection of peacekeepers, humanitarian aid, disaster relief, infrastructure, or development, Israel’s ‘blue and white’ products provide innovative solutions for the UN’s greatest challenges,” the Ambassador continued.
Christian Saunders, the Assistant Secretary-General for the Office of Central Support-Services in the Department of Management, said that “over the past few years, we have embraced technologies that allow us to better fulfill our mandates. Technology and innovation have been Israel’s bread and butter from the day of its founding, giving it a big advantage in these areas.”
“We welcome the participation of Israeli companies who have a lot to offer the UN and we are in the process of simplifying and streamlining the bureaucracy to make it easier for companies to do business with the UN,” Saunders said.

In Jordan, Israel and Iran secretly negotiate future of Syria – report

In a Jordanian hotel, Iranian representatives reportedly negotiated with Israeli officials over Syrian territories bordering on the Golan Heights.
By: World Israel Staff.
Iran pledged to stay out of fighting in southwestern Syria during talks with Israel that took place in Amman, Jordan, according to Elaph, a Saudi-owned website as reported by Ma’ariv.
Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces have clashed with Sunni rebel groups in Daraa, a region on the border with both the Israeli Golan Heights and Jordan’s northern border. Israel has made it clear that it will not intervene in the battles in the tri-border area, as long as Hezbollah and the Iranian-backed Shi’ite militias are not involved.
The US has also warned Assad not to move troops into the region.
The unconfirmed report said the negotiations were conducted last weekend between Iran’s ambassador to Jordan, who was in one hotel room in Amman with Iranian security personnel, while in the next room there were senior Israeli security officials, including the deputy head of the Mossad. The report said a Jordanian mediator carried messages between the sides.

Report: Russian jets force Israeli F-16s away from Lebanon

Report: Russian jets force Israeli F-16s away from LebanonRussian Sukhoi Su-34 fighter jet (Wikipedia)
 Print  Email  22 Comments
Russian jets reportedly forced Israeli aircraft out of Lebanon, but none of the three countries has confirmed the incident. 
By Batya Jerenberg,  World Israel News
Russian fighter jets from Syria forced Israeli F-16s away from the Lebanese capital Sunday night, according to a report citing Lebanese and Russian media outlets.
A Lebanese paper said the Sukhoi Su-34 jets took off from their Syrian coast base specifically to intercept the Israeli planes, while other reports indicated that the Russians had been on a military exercise off the coast and were forced into Lebanese airspace by bad weather conditions.
Since its direct involvement in Syria’s civil war began in September 2015, Russia has almost always been willing to turn a blind eye to Israeli air strikes on the country – and there have been hundreds of them. They have ranged from anti-terrorist activity, such as targeting caravans carrying armaments to Hezbollah in Lebanon, to hitting Syrian outposts that were the sources of errant shells that reached Israeli territory, and most recently, bombing Iranian military targets in Syria.

By: The Algemeiner
Israel will not collaborate with the United Nations Human Rights Council on an investigation into the recent riots on the Gaza border. Instead, it will issue its own report on the events, Hebrew media outlets reported on Sunday.
Around a hundred Palestinians were killed in the riots, most of them terrorists. The events were marked by attempts to breach the border fence, the planting of explosives, and the use of kites equipped with incendiary devices.
The UNHRC recently voted to establish a committee to investigate the riots, with only the US and Australia opposing the idea.

Iran has conducted ballistic missile tests in violation of a UN resolution, while its secret testing grounds have been exposed. 
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News and JNS
Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon informed the Security Council (UNSC) on Thursday that Iran had conducted two ballistic missile tests in January, in direct violation of Resolution 2231.
“On 2 January 2018, Iran launched a SHAHAB 3 variant at the CHA-BAHAR (South East Iran) firing range. On 5 January 2018, Iran launched a Scud variant from a firing range 110 km North East of Kerman,” Danon revealed.
Both the SHAHAB 3 and Scud missiles are Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) category one ballistic missiles, capable of delivering a nuclear payload of 500 kilograms for a range of over 300 kilometers.

Report: ‘Enemy’ missiles attack Syrian military baseExplosion in Syria. (SANA via AP/File)
Large explosions were heard in central Syria at a military base that reportedly came under “enemy” fire.
By: AP
Late Thursday, Syrian TV reported a military base in central Syria came under attack from “enemy” fire and that Syrian air defenses confronted a missile attack. It did not give additional details.
Minutes earlier, SANA reported loud explosions at Dabaa airbase in Homs province.
Syria’s government forces have relied on support from the Lebanese group Hezbollah and other regional militias, organized by Iran to wage war on Syrian rebels and IS militants.
Their reach in Syria has alarmed the Trump administration in Washington and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government in Tel Aviv, which say that Iran’s expansive networks in the war-torn country threaten Israel.
Netanyahu has warned repeatedly Israel will not allow Iran to threaten Israel from Syria.

A group of 74 US Congressmen, all Democrats, have called on Israel to stop the demolition of two Bedouin villages, which the Supreme Court and the State of Israel have ruled are illegal. 
By: World Israel News Staff
Seventy-four Democratic lawmakers this week urged Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to halt the planned demolition of two Palestinian villages.
Orchestrated by representatives Jan Schakowsky of Illinois and John Yarmuth of Kentucky, the letter calls on the premier to nix an order to demolish the Palestinian villages of Susiya and Khan al-Ahmar in Judea and Samaria.
The letter sent to Netanyahu Monday said that the “destruction and displacement of such communities would run counter to shared US and Israeli values, while further undermining long-term Israeli security, Palestinian dignity and the prospects for peacefully achieving two states for two people.”
The initiative is part of a wider trend of Republican-Democrat polarization on issues related to Israel, with Republicans increasing more supportive of policies advanced by the present Israeli government and Democrats increasingly critical.

By: World Israel News Staff
Following criticism which was taken to heart by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the cabinet decided Thursday to change a law passed with a large majority that empowered the Israeli leader to declare war with the consent of just the defense minister.
The new legislation will transfer power from the government to the security cabinet, a smaller group of government ministers.
Though decisions on declaring war are customarily made by the security cabinet, at least since 1982, this reality was not reflected in legislation.

Report: US may recognize Israeli sovereignty in Golan

Report: US may recognize Israeli sovereignty in GolanPM Netanyahu in the Golan Heights, near the Israeli border with Syria (Kobi Gideon/GPO)
Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz reportedly announced that recognition of Israel’s right to the Golan Heights now “topp[ed] the agenda” in diplomatic talks with the US.
By: World Israel News Staff
In an interview with Reuters, Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz said that Israel is now urging the Trump administration to acknowledge the Jewish state’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights.
While Katz reportedly predicted that the US may take the step within a few months, the White House offered no immediate comment on the matter.
In the wake of the US’ withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal, its declaration that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, and its subsequent embassy move, recognition of Israeli sovereignty in the Golan could send another strong message to Tehran and Israel’s other foes in the region.
“This is the perfect time to make such a move. The most painful response you can give the Iranians is to recognize Israel’s Golan sovereignty – with an American statement, a presidential proclamation, enshrined [in law],” Katz told Reuters.
Israel captured the Golan Heights in 1967, prior to which Syria controlled the area, which has strategic significance to the Jewish state as a buffer zone protecting it from Iranian aggression.
Israeli officially annexed the territory in 1981, but the decision was not recognized internationally.

Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz on Wednesday said that the European Union could “go to a thousand, thousand hells,” escalating an already tense standoff between a number of European countries and Israel.
Steinitz was responding to the EU’s demand that Israel investigate an incident last week in which an Arab human rights activist was injured, allegedly while in police custody, after demonstrating in favor of Hamas-organized rioting along the border fence with Gaza.
“This is the height of gall and hypocrisy,” Steinitz said in an interview with Radio 103FM. “This is the same European Union which is now kissing-up to Iran and helping that country deal with US sanctions.

Several senior members of Iran’s government and armed forces hit back Wednesday after hearing Secretary of State Mike Pompeo list the American conditions that would have to be met in a new nuclear treaty the Trump administration wants to negotiate after pulling out of the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) earlier this month.
The Iranian government’s mouthpiece, the Mehr News Agency, reported that Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif called Pompeo’s remarks “empty promises and threats,”  and “baseless, illogical, disrespectful, and not worth giving a response to.”

Israel’s famous Iron Dome anti-rocket system, in addition to the “Samson” remote-controlled weapons positions, and the “Gil” or “Spike” anti-tank tactical missiles, will be part of the deal to enable Romaero to manufacture defense systems in Romania.
This is Rafael’s first local production agreement with Romania, and part of a new Romanian initiative to create jobs by bringing industries home.

It sounds good – even excellent. As reported by Army Radio Wednesday, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman has presented a comprehensive plan to protect hundreds of thousands of Israeli citizens in the part of the country threatened by Hezbollah, Syrian and even Iranian missiles. The only catch, however, is a big one: the budget for Liberman’s plan has yet to be allocated.
The plan, called “Shield of the North,” would not be small potatoes, as the cost is estimated at NIS 5 billion over five years. Municipalities are supposed to help build 200,000 private bomb shelters in people’s homes, and 550 public shelters, while 800 schools and kindergartens, 65 welfare institutions, and dozens of medical clinics’ protection will be seriously upgraded.

Azerbaijan continues to buck conventional Islamic world attitudes toward Israel by prioritizing good relations with the Jewish state.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
May 14th was a historic date in Israel this year, marking the country’s 70th anniversary on the Gregorian calendar and the day on which the Americans moved their embassy to Jerusalem.
It was also the date on which the number of Gazan terrorists killed during Hamas-orchestrated rioting at the border was greatest, resulting in widespread condemnation of the Jewish state by the Muslim world.
One Muslim state, Azerbaijan, refused to join in the anti-Israel chorus, however, putting its national interests first, according to a report in Haaretz.
To that end, the Republic of Azerbaijan sent a delegation of senior officials to Israel from Sunday to Tuesday last week for the first meeting of an inter-governmental economic committee to encourage commercial ties between the two countries. Israel was represented by Minister of Environmental Protection and Jerusalem Affairs Ze’ev Elkin.

By: AP
The Trump administration is ratcheting up pressure on Iran with new sanctions targeting five Iranians for supporting Shiite extremists in Yemen.
The Treasury Department announced Tuesday that it was blacklisting the five for providing the Houthis with technical expertise that has allowed them to launch missiles into neighboring Saudi Arabia. All five are members of or are affiliated with Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.
Following President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo vowed Monday that the U.S. would step up efforts against Iran’s support for groups like the Houthis, terror organizations like Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Israel and the Gaza Strip, and the Syrian regime.
The sanctions freeze any assets the five may have in U.S. jurisdictions and prohibit Americans from any transactions with them.

With the the current Iranian threat looming, Netanyahu reportedly ordered security cabinet meetings to be held in a subterranean Jerusalem location for the time being.

By: World Israel News Staff

A recently built underground bunker in Jerusalem will host meetings of Israel’s security cabinet until further notice, representing a significant departure from the meeting’s traditional venue in the Prime Minister’s Office.

While Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu provided no official reason for the decision to hold meetings in the new location, members of the Hebrew-language media commented that the intensifying conflict with Iranian forces in Syria may have necessitated the secure locale.

Notwithstanding Israel’s decisive military victories as of late via strikes on Iranian bases within Syria, including an early morning attack nearly two weeks ago during which Israeli F-15 and F-16 fighter jets decimated Iranian military assets, Iran has remained defiant, showing no intentions of backing down from regional conflicts.

In light of Iranian intransigence, Israel’s security cabinet is reportedly identifying the Jewish state’s red lines in terms of Iran’s continued activity in Syria.

Whether or not the security cabinet is also addressing Iran’s role in fomenting and bankrolling the Hamas terror organization’s violent “March of Return” remains to be seen, however, the new underground meeting location could also help secure information related to this matter.

In addition, media leaks may also be minimized by meeting in the bunker, suggested a report by Times of Israel.

Netanyahu lauded US President Donald Trump for putting pressure on Iran to stop its intervention in Syria and end its uranium enrichment. 

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised the Trump administration’s tough stance toward Iran after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s speech laying out the conditions for a nuclear deal with Iran.

“No enrichment, tough sanctions and Iran should get out of Syria. We believe that it’s the only policy that can ultimately guarantee peace.” Netanyahu said at a reception for Paraguay’s president in honor of the country’s opening of its embassy in Jerusalem.

“Iran doesn’t need centrifuges for enrichment. If Iran wanted to pursue a peaceful nuclear program they wouldn’t need to hide their nuclear archive,” Netanyahu added. “Thank you, America, this is the right policy.”

Netanyahu said, “We believe it’s the only policy that can ultimately guarantee the security of the Middle East and peace in our region.” He called for other countries to follow America’s lead.

Opposition joins in the praise
Yesh Atid party leader Yair Lapid praised Pompeo after his speech laying out the Trump administration’s new strategy towards Iran.

“Mike Pompeo, the secretary of state, is right. In a clear and tough speech he said today that Iran needs to get out of Syria and immediately stop its support for Hezbollah and Hamas. Iran needs to stop its nuclear and ballistic missile programs,” tweeted Lapid.

“The world must work together against Iranian terror,” he stated.

J Street bashes Trump’s Iran policy
The J Street advocacy group slammed Pompeo’s speech laying out the White House’s new strategy towards Iran, saying it showed America is “almost totally isolated and is acting as a destabilizing force in the Middle East” under President Donald Trump.

“Let’s be clear: Today, it’s the US alone that is in violation of the historic JCPOA arms control agreement. Under the guidance of his new war cabinet, the president has demanded Iran’s complete and unconditional capitulation on a maximalist list of demands – an approach that is a recipe for confrontation and war,” Dylan Williams, the group’s vice president of government affairs, said in a statement.

“The only way now to ensure that a profoundly unfit president and his regime change-obsessed advisers cannot bring about another costly and bloody war of choice is for Congress to exercise its constitutional duty to act as a check on the president,” he added. “Congress must make clear that the president does not now have its authorization for the use of military force against Iran.”

AIPAC welcomes Pompeo speech
AIPAC, on the other hand, said it welcomes Pompeo’s speech.

“We welcome @SecPompeo’s important speech on Iran today, in which he outlined a comprehensive US policy to prevent Iran from ever obtaining a nuclear weapon and to confront its regional aggression,” the prominent pro-Israel lobby group says in a tweet.

Explosions rocked an area thought to house an Iranian facility near Damascus early Monday morning, according to a report in Sky News Arabia.

There was no immediate confirmation of the explosion and it was not clear what may have caused the blasts, which came days after another mysterious explosion at a Syrian base.

Sky News said locals reported hearing explosions near Najjah, a neighborhood south of Damascus that houses a military academy.

Not the first time
The alleged blasts on Monday came days after explosions were heard near Hama airport in Syria last week. The U.K-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights group said the series of explosions occurred near Hama’s military airport and had been heard in Hama city, killing at least 11 government soldiers and allied fighters. According to reports, the explosions went off in fuel and arms depots.

Last month, Israel targeted an advanced Iranian air-defense system at the T4 base in Syria, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Iran and Lebanon’s Hezbollah have been helping Syria’s Bashar Assad beat back a seven-year-old rebellion.

Israel has reportedly carried out repeated air strikes against them, hoping to stop the formation of a Lebanese-Syrian front to its north and the transfer of arms to Hezbollah.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed that Israel will not allow Iran to establish bases in Syria.

Israel has coordinated its attacks on Iranian military facilities based in Syria with Russia. Earlier this month, Netanyahu was in Moscow for a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Ahead of the meeting, Netanyahu said, “In light of what is happening in Syria at this moment, it is necessary to ensure the continued security coordination between the Russian army and the Israel Defense Forces.”

By: World Israel News Staff and AP
The US and several Gulf countries have placed new anti-terror sanctions on the Iranian-backed Hezbollah terror organization, adding pressure to fight the group’s global financial network.
The US Treasury Department stated Wednesday that Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and other Gulf nations are slapping sanctions on Hezbollah’s senior leadership. The sanctions are being coordinated by a US-Gulf partnership called the Terrorist Financing and Targeting Center (TFTC), which was formed last May.
Ten officials were hit with the sanctions, including Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah and his deputy, Naim Qassem.

The Gulf states also targeted four of the terror group’s committees and ordered the individuals’ assets and bank accounts frozen, Saudi Arabia’s official news agency stated.
The Arab League branded Hezbollah a terror organization in November 2017.
Most of the Hezbollah officials were already under heavy US sanctions, so the actions will have limited practical implications in the US. The Trump administration has been targeting Hezbollah in Lebanon in order to increase pressure on its patron, Iran, following the president’s withdrawal last week from the Iran nuclear deal.

Hamas’s Gaza violence: Why now? Why these tactics?

Hamas’s Gaza violence: Why now? Why these tactics?Hamas terrorists in Gaza. (Abed Rahim Khatib/ Flash90)
ANALYSIS: Hamas has been organizing throngs of Gazans to overrun the border fence with Israel at their own peril. Why are they using this tactic and why now?
By: Mati Wagner, World Israel News
The Hamas-orchestrated attempts to breach the border fence separating Israel from Gaza reached new levels of violence Monday.
Over 60 Gazans were killed and hundreds were wounded as IDF forces stationed along the border fence used tear gas and other forms of crowd control, as well as live fire, to prevent thousands of rioters — including armed Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists — from forcing their way into Israel and attacking IDF soldiers and neighboring Jewish communities.
But why is this happening now? And why has Hamas changed its tactics?
Hamas is in trouble
Ostensibly, the rioting, which has been billed by Hamas as the “Great March of Return,” is about the Palestinian “right of return” or the right of Palestinian “refugees” to “return” to their homes in Israel. The incidents on Monday coincided with the eve of Israel’s Independence Day, which Palestinians call Nakba Day or “the day of the catastrophe.”
But the real reason for the rioting is that Hamas is in trouble. The terrorist organization is facing a humanitarian crisis at home and diplomatic isolation abroad.
Gazans lack basic necessities due to Hamas’s incompetence and willingness to prioritize terrorist capabilities over taking care of Gazans.

The UN Human Rights Council continues to blame Israel for the deaths of armed Hamas “protesters” attempting to breach the security fence and cross the border in order to kill and kidnap Israel.
By: AP and World Israel News
Despite the fact that the majority of casualties at the Israel-Gaza border were terrorists, as confirmed by Hamas, which openly states the goal of eliminating Israel and killing Jews, the UN Human Rights Council continues to blame the Jewish state for the deadly violence.
Following an intense session throughout the day on Friday, the council approved a resolution, drafted by Kuwait, asking the commission of inquiry to “provide recommendations to protect civilians against any further assaults” in Gaza.
The resolution was approved by a vote of 29-2, with 14 abstentions. The US and Australia were the only two countries to vote against the resolution.
Croatia, Ethiopia, Georgia, Germany, Hungary, Japan, Kenya, Panama, Republic of Korea, Rwanda, Switzerland, Togo, and the UK abstained.
The UN’s top human rights official said Friday there’s “little evidence” that Israel made an effort to minimalize casualties during protests by Palestinians earlier this week and backed calls for an international inquiry.
Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein spoke in Geneva to a special session of the UN Human Rights Council called following a deadly crackdown on protesters in Gaza by Israeli forces. Israeli troops firing into Hamas-ruled Gaza killed nearly 60 Palestinians at mass border protests on Monday.
The session will consider a resolution put forward by Pakistan and other Muslim countries that includes a call for the council to dispatch an “independent, international commission of inquiry.”
‘Little evidence of attempt to minimize casualties’
“There is little evidence of any attempt to minimize casualties on Monday,” said Zeid, a Jordanian prince.

Israeli scientists have exposed the earliest evidence of blood vengeance in ancient times.
By: World Israel News Staff
Israeli scientists recently exposed the earliest evidence of blood vengeance in ancient times, found in a cave in the Jerusalem hills believed to have been inhabited by Bedouins.
In an archaeological survey conducted in the cave, Prof. Boaz Zissu, of the Martin (Szusz) Department of Land of Israel Studies and Archaeology at Bar-Ilan University, discovered a human skull and palm bones that have been dated to the 10th-11th centuries CE, about a 1,000 years old.
The bones were identified by Dr. Yossi Nagar, an anthropologist at the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA), and Dr. Haim Cohen, of the National Center for Forensic Medicine and Tel Aviv University, as belonging to a man aged 25-40 years.
According to the researchers, “the skull cap shows signs of two traumatic injuries that eventually healed, evidence of previous violence experienced by the victim, as well as a small cut-mark caused close to the time of death, and a blow by a sword that caused certain and immediate death.”
A morphological examination of the skull revealed a great resemblance to the local Bedouin population in Israel, which apparently had a tradition of blood vengeance, even before the birth of Islam.
This finding is consistent with the historical knowledge that in the period under discussion, a millennia ago, the Jerusalem hills were inhabited by Bedouin who migrated to the area from northern Arabia.

The Canadian opposition and Jewish organizations are slamming Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for ignoring Hamas’ leadership in the deadly Gaza violence. Former PM Stephen Harper was a staunch supporter of the Jewish state.
By: Ben Cohen, The Algemeiner
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau encountered strong criticism on Thursday over his earlier statement condemning the violence on the Israel-Gaza Strip border that excluded any mention of Hamas’ role in stoking Palestinian attacks.
Trudeau spoke out on Wednesday after learning that a Canadian citizen had been shot and wounded during the two days of clashes that resulted in the deaths of 62 Palestinians — 50 of whom, according to a senior Hamas spokesman, were Hamas operatives. Declaring that Canada was “appalled that Dr. Tarek Loubani, a Canadian citizen, is among the wounded,” Trudeau said that his government was “engaging with Israeli officials to get to the bottom of these events.”

The new investment is in addition to $4.5 billion already pledged by the multinational technology giant to its Israeli ventures in 2018.
By: Ariel Whitman/Israel Hayom
Multinational technology giant Intel announced on Tuesday that it plans to increase its investment in ‎Israel by an additional NIS 18 billion (‎‎$5 ‎billion‎). This follows the company’s announcement in February that it will invest $4.5 billion in its Israeli ‎ventures in 2018.‎
Intel Israel currently employs 11,000 people. ‎According to its website, Intel has bought ‎goods and services from local Israeli suppliers to ‎the tune of $10 billion in the past decade, with ‎exports amounting to $50 billion. The company’s ‎exports for 2017 totaled $3.6 billion.‎
The additional funds have been earmarked for the ‎company’s flagship facility in the southern Israeli city of ‎Kiryat Gat.‎
Intel is expected to receive a host of tax breaks ‎and other state incentives for its investment, ‎which the government is expected to approve in the ‎coming weeks. ‎
The company said that as part of its investment, it ‎will offer 250 new jobs, as well as undertake the ‎technological upgrade of the Kiryat Gat facility, which Intel officials say has a ‎‎“significant advantage” over the company’s other ‎sites worldwide.‎
An inter-ministerial team tasked with offering ‎incentives to foreign investors has recommended ‎giving Intel a grant of NIS 700 million ($195 million), contingent on its commitment to making a ‎strategic investment in its Israeli operations.‎
‎“I have just heard from Intel CEO [in Israel] Yaniv ‎Garty that after two years of intensive work, ‎Intel’s global management has accepted our proposal ‎to invest another NIS 18 billion and expand its ‎activity in Israel,” said Israel’s Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon.

Israeli ambassador to Belgium blasts host nation for biased Gaza criticismIsrael's Ambassador to Belgium and Luxembourg Simona Frankel (Screenshot)
Belgium was expecting to rebuke Israel’s ambassador over the violence in Gaza, but she fought back instead. 
By: World Israel News Staff
Israel’s Ambassador to Belgium and Luxembourg Simona Frankel was summoned by both foreign ministries, which sought to dress her down for Monday’s violence on Israel’s southern border with Gaza, during which 62 Palestinians, mostly terrorists, were killed.
Belgium’s Foreign Minister Didier Reynders called in Frankel on Tuesday after she said that all Palestinians killed in the violence were “terrorists.”
Belgium’s Prime Minister Charles Michel called for an international inquiry into the clashes, to be led by the United Nations.
“The violence committed in the Gaza Strip yesterday is unacceptable. We call for an international inquiry led by the United Nations,” Michel said in a joint statement with Reynders. “Firing live rounds on protesters is shameful.”
During an interview with Belgian broadcaster RTBF, Frankel said that those killed were terrorists. “Look at the people who take a baby toward a fence. These are not peaceful demonstrators.”
To this, Reynders stated “to say that all the people who were killed were terrorists, that is beyond belief.”
Incidentally, a Hamas official admitted that 50 of the 62 Palestinians killed during the riots on the Gaza border were members of the Palestinian terrorist group.
“In the last rounds of confrontations, if 62 people were martyred, 50 of the martyrs were Hamas and 12 from the people [civilians]. How can Hamas reap the fruits if it pays such an expensive price?”

“Now that it has become clear that the US is not an honest broker at all, we decided to exercise our right in joining” UN agencies, a Palestinian official said.
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
In an apparent pushback to the recent American transfer of its embassy to Jerusalem, the Palestinian Authority (PA) will soon apply for full membership at three unnamed United Nations (UN) organizations, a PA official told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday.
“Back when we dealt with the US as an honest broker in the peace process, it asked us not to join these organizations and we complied. However, now that it has become clear that the US is not an honest broker at all, we decided to exercise our right in joining them,” the official said.
This is not a new tactic for Ramallah. After the PA was created following the Oslo Accords in 1993, it joined many international bodies of lesser importance. But ever since 2012, when the UN general assembly upgraded its observer status to “non-member observer state,” which formally allowed it access to international bodies, it has applied to them in waves.

Turkey allegedly tried smuggling made-in-Israel electronic devices to Iran that could be used as parts for nuclear weapons triggers.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Did Turkey violate United Nations Resolution 2231 that does not allow components or technologies that could be used in nuclear weapons to be sold to Iran? The international organization’s Secretariat has asked Israel, among other countries, to help it find out, according to a report Thursday in Yedioth Ahranoth.
The story began last July, said the paper, when the United Arab Emirates (UAE) seized a shipment that Turkey was sending to Iran that contained CSP 180/300 model capacitors. These small devices are what is called dual-use technology. High speed capacitors are components that are critical to activate, or trigger, a nuclear weapon. However, capacitors in general are widely used in many common electrical devices.

Paraguay’s government says President Horacio Cartes will open the country’s new embassy in Israel on Tuesday in Jerusalem, following similar steps by the United States and Guatemala.
Government spokesman Mariano Mercado says Cartes will leave for the trip on Saturday.
The decision to move the embassy to Jerusalem has been controversial in Paraguay. It comes less than two months before Mario Abdo Benitez replaces Cartes, and the president-elect has said he wasn’t consulted.
Paraguay will be the third country to move its embassy to Jerusalem, after the United States and Guatemala opened embassies in the city this week.
Last month, Cartes said that he wanted to relocate the country’s embassy to Jerusalem before the end of his presidential term in August.

In an exchange of insulting gestures, Turkey and Israel subjected each other’s diplomats to public security checks that are normally not carried out on government officials, inviting the media to record and broadcast the proceedings.
First, Eitan Na’eh went to the airport Wednesday after being told to leave Turkey following Monday’s violence at the Gaza-Israel border that allegedly resulted in some 60 Palestinian deaths and 2,700 injuries, infuriating President Recep Erdoğan. Before getting on his plane, however, he had to pass through Turkish security, which made sure to pat him down, take off his shoes and have a scan of his hands — all in front of a pre-invited Turkish media corps.
“This was a deliberate humiliation,” an Israeli political source stated, according to Kan News. “The journalists were invited to the field and put into the sterile area of the Turkish Airlines flight, where a security check is carried out just before boarding the plane.”

Many countries are denouncing Israel and even the US for the deadly Palestinian violence at the Gaza border, with two countries recalling their ambassadors. The White House is defending the IDF response to the “unprecedented” threat.
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Around 40,000 demonstrators heeded the Hamas government’s call to amass at the border fence with Israel Monday, more than twice the usual number that has shown up over the last several weeks during the Palestinians’ so-called “March of Return.”
The IDF, which heeded the stepped-up rhetoric in anticipation of the Palestinians’ Nakba Day (May 15) and their anger over the opening the same day of the American embassy in Jerusalem, reinforced its numbers accordingly. They also dropped leaflets into Gaza, warning the residents not to approach the border.
Tens of thousands of Palestinians nonetheless made violent attempts at some 13 points to damage the security infrastructure and/or get through to Israeli territory, and the soldiers repelled the forces with tear gas, rubber bullets and, when necessary, live ammunition.
Indeed, Yahya Sinwar, the Gaza-based leader of Hamas, warned last week that Monday’s riots would be “decisive,” with the Palestinians “like a tiger running in all directions.

By: World Israel News Staff
Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas condemned the US’ move of its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, deriding the new location as a “settlement outpost.”
Speaking at the opening of a leadership meeting held in Ramallah on Monday, Abbas described the US embassy in Jerusalem as “an American settlement outpost,” throwing it in the same category as Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria “built in the occupied Palestinian territories.”
“What we saw in Jerusalem today was not the opening of an embassy, but the opening of an American settlement outpost,” he said. “Before we had settlement outposts with American help, but today we have an American settlement outpost in east Jerusalem.”
Abbas also claimed that the US had “defi[ed] international law and United Nations resolutions” and “removed itself from the political work in the Middle East as a mediator.”
“It’s no longer an arbiter,” said Abbas, stressing that the Palestinians will only accept a multilateral track for negotiations through an international peace conference.
The Palestinians have boycotted Washington since President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in December, rejecting site unseen any potential US peace initiatives.

Several hours after the Sderot machine gun incident, IDF troops on the border again became the targets of gunfire from within Gaza, said the army.

By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Furious with four European countries that sent envoys to a Foreign Ministry-hosted reception earlier in the week to celebrate the new American embassy in Jerusalem, the Palestinian Authority (PA) recalled its ambassadors Wednesday for “consultations.”
This followed a similar move on Tuesday when PA President Mahmoud Abbas recalled the Palestinian envoy to the US, Husam Zomlot, whose official position is the Palestine Liberation Organization’s chief representative in Washington.
Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Romania are all members of the European Union, but they broke with the EU’s official stance on the US move, which is highly negative. They also recently blocked an EU statement criticizing the Trump administration’s embassy decision. Foreign policy statements must be unanimously agreed upon by all EU countries, which meant it could not pass.
The Palestinians said they consider the diplomats’ participation in the festive event a “grave violation of international law.”
Romania’s government has expressed interest in relocating its embassy to Israel’s capital as well, although its president, who is in charge of foreign policy, opposes the government plan. In March, the Czech foreign ministry said it recognizes western Jerusalem as the country’s capital, although it objects to making any moves at this time. The Czech president , however, has reportedly said that moving his country’s embassy to Jerusalem is a top priority.

Guatemala and Paraguay have already announced that they are moving their embassies to Jerusalem and several other countries are reportedly planning to follow suit.
Despite undiplomatic pressures amounting to blackmail, Brussels has failed to maintain a unified position on Jerusalem within the European Union block. EU member states like Romania, Hungary, Austria and Czech Republic have refused to join the official EU boycott of the American embassy in Jerusalem. These countries are also at different stages of moving or at least considering moving their embassies to Jerusalem at some point. With the exception of Turkey’s radical firebrand President Recep Erdogan, even most of the Muslim world has realized that Washington’s decision on Jerusalem is irreversible.
Anyone doubting Washington’s global influence, should look no further than the deeply flawed Iran nuclear deal. While the Europeans insist that it is business as usual, the American exit will eventually likely lead to its collapse. President Trump’s planned sanctions on Iran will put significant pressure on the Europeans who will have to choose between trade with the US or trade with Iran.
The Europeans are clearly displeased with the prospect of losing multi-billion dollar trade with Iran but can’t afford deteriorating diplomatic and economic relations with Washington.
On May 14, 1948, President Harry Truman became the first international leader to recognize the reborn Jewish state of Israel. On May 14, 2018, the United States led by President Trump, became the first country to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Over time, most countries in the world have followed in Truman’s footsteps by recognizing Israel.
Over time, most countries in the world will eventually follow in the footsteps of President Trump and move their embassies to Israel’s capital, Jerusalem. It won’t happen tomorrow or even next year, but eventually it will become a reality that rectifies a historic injustice inflicted on the Jewish people and Israel.

Former Muslim extremist slams what’s happening in the Arab world
By Michael Sax -  May 16, 2018 9939 0

Tweet
He used to be a Muslim extremist, now he’s helping to stop them. The UN Watch recently honored Maajid Nawaz for his work. Find out more about this fascinating person right here.
Maajid Nawaz
Maajid Nawaz is one of the most interesting people you’ll ever meet. He was a Muslim extremist, but then went through an amazing transformation. Nawaz used to be a member of the Islamist group Hizb ut-Tahrir.  He traveled around the United Kingdom setting up cells and taking part in organizing the extremist group.
Egypt Prison Time
While studying the Arabic language in Egypt, Maajid Nawaz, along with other extremists, were arrested by Hosni Mubarak’s secret police. They put him in jail for five years. As well, Nawaz also went through mental torture and solitary confinement. While in jail, he met with all sorts of Muslims. Religious and secular, radical and liberal, he met them all. Islamists, Jihadists, assassins of Anwar Sadat, leaders of Muslim Brotherhood and Hizb ut Tahrir, liberal Muslims and Muslims convicted for leaving Islam, Nawaz got to know them and their ideology. As a result of meeting different types of Muslims, and reading books about human rights, Nawaz came to a realization.
Seeing how wrong he was
Nawaz realized that he was wrong and Islamic extremism was wrong. Hence, he left Hizb-ut-Tahrir and called for a secular Islam. Additionally, he wrote a book about his experience. He even briefed U.S. presidents and successive British Prime Ministers on how best to combat extremism and make all our lives safer.
Maajid Nawaz Addresses 2018 Gala Dinner
Islamic terrorists are launching more attacks around the world. That’s why it’s so important for former extremists to share their stories. They can raise awareness as they have inside knowledge. Hopefully, it will inspire Muslim extremists to abandon their radical views.

Opposition head: Messianic atmosphere at US Embassy ceremony ‘disturbing’

Opposition head: Messianic atmosphere at US Embassy ceremony ‘disturbing’Pastor John Hagee (AP/J. Michael Short)
The messianic Christian atmosphere at the Jerusalem US Embassy dedication was ‘disturbing,’ says Zionist Union Chairman Avi Gabbay.
By: World Israel News Staff  
Avi Gabbay, who heads the Zionist Union, Israel’s largest opposition party, said Tuesday that the “messianic Christian atmosphere” during Monday’s US Embassy dedication in Jerusalem was “disturbing.”
“It was a joyous day of celebration for our Jerusalem,” Gabbay told Army Radio. “But the messianism of the two pastors who spoke was not for me.”
Pastor John Hagee, founder of Christians United for Israel, delivered the benediction at the ceremony.
“We thank you, O Lord, for President Donald Trump’s courage in acknowledging to the world a truth that was established 3,000 years ago — that Jerusalem is and always shall be the eternal capital of the Jewish people,” Hagee said.
Robert Jeffress, a Southern Baptist, said a prayer at the embassy opening.
“We come before you, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, thanking you for bringing us to this momentous occasion in the life of your people and in the history of our world,” Jeffress said on Monday.
Jeffress went on to praise the leadership of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman and Trump.
“We want to thank you for the tremendous leadership of our great president, Donald J. Trump. Without President Trump’s determination, resolve and courage we would not be here today,” he said.

Koftan Halabi, chairman of the Druze Veterans’ Association, participated in the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem Monday and discussed his “excitement as a fighter for Israel against BDS around the world.”
Exclusive to World Israel News
According to Israel’s Jewish and Druze Public Council, “The covenant of life and blood between the Druze sector and the Jewish people in Israel began even before the State of Israel was established. Lately, the need has arisen to implement and strengthen the covenant among the second generation on both sides due to the growing erosion of the recognition of its importance to both the Druze and Jewish sectors. This concerns the Druze contribution to the establishment of the State of Israel and its strategic significance for the security and strength of the state and society.”
Koftan Halabi, chairman of the Druze Veterans’ Association, who represents “a new generation,” quoted that statement to World Israel News and issued his own regarding the US Embassy move to “Jerusalem, Israel’s eternal capital,” on Monday. Following is his official statement:
Thanking Trump ‘from the depths of our heart’
“It’s a historic moment. President Trump is making history. We thank him from the depths of our heart for his courageous decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s eternal capital and to transfer [the embassy] to Jerusalem.

Turkey recalls ambassadors from Israel and US, cites ‘genocide’

Denouncing the US Embassy move to Jerusalem alongside alleged Gaza ‘genocide,’ angry Erdoğan recalls Turkish envoys from Israel and US.
By: Ben Cohen, The Algemeiner
Turkey recalled its ambassadors from Tel Aviv and Washington on Monday as senior officials in Ankara frenziedly accused the US and Israel of sharing the blame for the “massacre” of Palestinian rioters on the border between Gaza and Israel and President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan once again charged Israel with committing “genocide.”
The diplomatic recalls were announced by Erdoğan on Monday evening as he prepared to fly back to Ankara from a visit to the United Kingdom. In a speech at London’s prestigious Royal Institute for International Affairs earlier in the day, the Turkish leader remarked regarding the American Embassy move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, “[W]e cannot help but feel like we are living through the dark times prior to the Second World War,” going on to argue that the US had forfeited its position as a mediator in the conflict between the Palestinians and Israel.

By: World Israel News Staff
Israel opened the Kerem Shalom Crossing into Gaza on Tuesday and enabled the passage of goods into the Strip, despite the damage repeatedly caused by Palestinian rioters to the site.
Hamas, however, has blocked the passage of goods into the Strip, further strangling the residents of Gaza. Hundreds of trucks loaded with goods were forced to turn around and drive back.
Israel Minister of Defense Avigdor Liberman approved the IDF’s recommendation to reopen the crossing for the transporting of goods into Gaza on Tuesday, despite the fact that Palestinians set fire to the site during the Hamas-led massive riots on Monday, marking the third time in two weeks Palestinians torched the crossing.

Report: Iran group offers $100,000 to bomb US Embassy in Jerusalem

Report: Iran group offers $100,000 to bomb US Embassy in Jerusalem(Screenshot)
There will be a “$100,000 dollar prize for the person who destroys the illegal American embassy in Jerusalem,” the poster states.
A student organization in Iran has offered a $100,000 reward to whoever bombs the new US Embassy in Jerusalem, according to Farsi-language reports cited by The Washington Free Beacon.
The Iranian Justice Seeker Student Movement has reportedly disseminated posters calling for the bombing of the embassy.
There will be a “$100,000 dollar prize for the person who destroys the illegal American embassy in Jerusalem,” the poster states in Farsi, Arabic, and English, according to an independent translation of the propaganda poster provided to the Free Beacon.
“It is necessary to mention that the steps by Trump to transfer the US Embassy to Holy Quds [Jerusalem] has led to the anger and hatred of Muslims and liberators throughout the world,” the group stated.
The University Student News Network, a regional Farsi-language site, first reported the news of the bomb threat, the Free Beacon said.
The Free Beacon spoke to Michael Rubin, a former Pentagon adviser and expert on rogue regimes, who said that terrorism of this nature is embedded in the Iranian regime’s hardline stance.
“Unfortunately, terrorism directed toward diplomats and embassies has become a central pillar of the Islamic Republic’s culture,” Rubin said. “Terrorism is lionized in Iranian schools. This bounty is more the rule than the exception. To blame Washington or Jerusalem is to blame the victim and give terrorists a veto over US policy.”

Israel bombs 11 Hamas targets, braces for another day of violence

Israel bombs 11 Hamas targets, braces for another day of violencePalestinian rioters on the Gaza border. (Abed Rahim Khatib/Flash90)
After the extreme violence perpetrated by Hamas-led Palestinians on Monday, the IDF prepared for another day of rioting on the Gaza border. 
By: World Israel News Staff
Israeli Air Force (IAF) aircraft on Monday conducted strikes on 11 terror targets in one of Hamas’ military compounds in northern Gaza, following the mass violent riots on the border with Gaza.
Similarly, IDF tanks targeted two Hamas terror posts in Gaza, one from which shots were fired at IDF forces.
Throughout the day, many rioters attempted to infiltrate Israel, with approximately 10 explosive devices and several firebombs were used and numerous shots fired at IDF forces defending Israel’s southern border.
These acts of terrorism were part of the Hamas-led violent 40,000-member offensive on Israel’s border during its so-called March of Return, which IDF troops operated to thwart. IDF forces responded with riot dispersal means and live fire in accordance with standard operating procedures.
Some 59 Palestinians were killed in the attacks and some 1,400 were wounded.
During the violent riots, Palestinians once again set fire to the Kerem Shalom Crossing, for the third time in two weeks.
The United Nations (UN) has warned that an alternative method of getting fuel to Gaza must be found immediately; otherwise, dwindling supplies needed to run hospitals, collect garbage, pump water and treat sewage will run out.
The appeal late Sunday by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) came two days after hundreds of Palestinian rioters, led by Hamas, destroyed the Kerem Shalom fuel terminal at the main cargo crossing with Israel, the only entry point for fuel to Gaza. Officials say it could take months to repair the damage.

How does the conflict between Jerusalem and Tehran fit into Moscow’s overall interests in Syria?
By: Daniel Krygier, World Israel News
Last week’s dramatic military escalation between Israel and Iran received wide international coverage. However, a key player in Syria’s future kept an unusually low profile: Russia. How does the conflict between Jerusalem and Tehran fit into Moscow’s overall interests in Syria?
In order to address this issue, Russia’s interests in Syria must be properly identified. During the Cold War, Syria served as Moscow’s most dedicated client state in the Middle East. While the Cold War has officially ended, Russia’s interests in the region remain.
Moscow’s most important asset in Syria is its naval base in the Syrian Mediterranean city of Tartus. This naval base is crucial to Russia because it is Moscow’s only direct access to the Mediterranean Sea. Without this base, Russian ships would have to resupply by going through volatile Turkish waters in order to reach Russian Black Sea naval bases.
From Russia’s point of view, the Assad regime is a guarantee that the Tartus naval base does not end up under Islamist control. This is the main reason why Russia has emerged as Assad’s strongest backer in the Syrian civil war. At the same time, Russia maintains good relations with Israel and is not interested in an escalation in Syria that undermines its military assets.
By contrast, Syria’s other backer, Iran, is a leading sponsor of global terrorism committed to Israel’s destruction. Israel has made it clear in both words and action that it will not tolerate a military presence of the genocidal Iranian regime on its northern border.

European nations are lining up on opposite sides of the political aisle as the grand opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem date approaches.
Of the 86 national diplomatic corps that were extended an invitation to the embassy opening, 40 have responded that they will attend, including the ambassadors from Hungary, Czech Republic, Austria and Romania.
However, some countries have declined invitations, citing both ideological and technical reasons, including Russia, Germany, Ireland, Malta, Mexico, Portugal, Australia, Poland and Sweden.
The European Union as a whole has voiced opposition to President Donald Trump’s official recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel. The entity drafted a resolution to condemn the Dec. 6 decision, but the measure was blocked by the Czech Republic, Romania and Hungary, according to Israel’s Channel 10 news

Hamas-led violence on the Gaza border has resulted in 16 Palestinian casualties, including many terrorists. 
By: World Israel News Staff
By the middle of the day, close to 50 Palestinians were killed Monday by IDF fire on the Gaza border during violent clashes, which involved some 35,000 rioters. The casualties include three terrorists who attempted to place an explosive device on the security fence in Rafah, using the violent riots as cover.
The numbers continue to rise.
Earlier on, an Israeli Air Force (IAF) aircraft bombed a Hamas military post near Jabalia after shots were fired at IDF troops from the area. No Israelis were injured in the incident.
Gaza’s health ministry claimed that 700 people were wounded Monday, including at least 69 by live fire.
Palestinians flew “fire kites,” which carried burning objects into Israel and caused wildfires in several locations.
For the past seven weeks, Hamas has been leading a series of protests under the “March of Return” banner. Hamas has declared that the riots will culminate with “decisive” action on Tuesday, May 15, the 70th anniversary of the State of Israel, which the Palestinians observe as Nakba Day, meaning “Day of Catastrophe.”
The IDF vowed to prevent a potential breach of the Gaza border at all costs and has added several layers of security.

IDF jets on Monday morning distributed leaflets over the Gaza Strip warning Palestinian civilians not to approach the security fence.
The leaflets also stressed to the Gaza residents that the Hamas terror group, which rules the Strip, was putting their lives at risk by encouraging them to commit violence and attempt to infiltrate Israel.
“Hamas is trying to hide its many failures by endangering your lives,” the leaflets said. “At the same time, Hamas is stealing your money and using it to dig tunnels at your expense.”
“Don’t be puppets in the hands of Hamas,” the IDF urged. “You deserve a better government and a better future.”
“Do not approach the security fence and do not participate in Hamas’s life-threatening farce,” the notice concludes sternly.

The IDF introduced its solution to Hamas’ kite-arson terror attacks.
By: World Israel News Staff
The IDF has recently begun deploying small drones to combat Hamas’ use of fire kites, which carry fiery objects to commit arson terror attacks in Israel’s south.
Israel’s Walla news reported Saturday that the IDF deployed a small UAV during Friday’s riots which cut down some 40 kites which the Palestinians deployed.
Prior to Friday’s success, the drone was tested a few times and was improved up to its full deployment.
In recent weeks, Palestinian terrorists have sent incendiary kites and helium balloons attached to Molotov cocktails over the border into Israeli fields in the south, causing dozens of fires that have destroyed hundreds of acres of woods and farmland and have ruined produce worth millions of shekels.
The use of incendiary balloons and fire kites is growing in popularity among Palestinian saboteurs.
Palestinians in Gaza have been using “fire kites” in recent weeks as part of the larger “March of Return” protests that began on March 30.
The violent Friday rallies have been orchestrated by Hamas, which controls Gaza, as part of an effort to “liberate Palestine.” Rioters have burned tires, thrown explosive devices and attempted to damage the security fence in order to infiltrate Israel.
Friday’s violence represented the seventh consecutive week of riots and included some 15,000 Palestinians who hurled pipe bombs, rocks and grenades at IDF forces stationed on the border. The rioters also sabotaged security infrastructure and burned tires
IDF troops responded with riot-dispersal measures and used live fire in accordance with the rules of engagement when threatened.
“The IDF will continue operating to protect Israeli citizens,” the IDF stated.
These latest events occurred amid the daily violence on the Israel-Gaza border, orchestrated by Hamas, the Islamic terror group that rules the Strip and calls for Israel’s destruction.

The 25-year-old beat out competition from 42 other countries’ performers Saturday to claim the music extravaganza’s annual crown at the Grand Final with her song “Toy.”

There was a strong field of contestants at this year’s event in Lisbon, Portugal, which was watched by an estimated 200 million people.

Possibly seeking to de-escalate tensions in Syria, Russia will not provide Syria with the S-300 air defense systems.  
By: JNS and World Israel News Staff
Russian officials on Friday indicated that they have changed their minds and will not supply the Syrian government with the advanced S-300 surface-to-air missile system.
Vladimir Kozhin, an aide to Russian President Vladimir Putin who oversees military assistance to other countries, told the Russian Izvestia daily that the systems are currently not needed in Syria.
“For now, we’re not talking about any deliveries of new modern [air-defense] systems,” Kozhin said when asked about the S-300 system.
Kozhin’s comments immediately followed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to Russia on Wednesday.
Netanyahu, who attended Russia’s military parade commemorating its 73rd anniversary victory over Nazi Germany, sought to discuss the escalating situation in Syria with Putin.
A day later, Iran launched 20 rockets at Israel, and the IDF retaliated by wiping out nearly Iran’s entire military infrastructure in Syria. An Iranian version of the S-300 was destroyed in the strike before they had a chance to deploy it.
An operational S-300 could have significantly complicated Israel’s strikes

Israel celebrates 51st anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem

Israel celebrates 51st anniversary of the reunification of JerusalemIsraelis celebrate Jerusalem Day at the Western Wall (Nicky Kelvin/Flash90)
Israel is celebrating the 51st anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem, its eternal capital. The Old City was liberated during the Six Day War in 1967, after 19 years of Jordanian occupation.
By: World Israel News Staff
Israel is celebrating on Sunday the 51st anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem, its eternal capital. The Old City was liberated during the Six Day War in 1967, after 19 years of Jordanian occupation.
After Israel declared its independence in 1948, it was attacked by neighboring Arab countries, including Jordan from the east, which captured the eastern part of Jerusalem, including the Old City. The Jewish residents were forced out, the Old City’s 58 synagogues were demolished, and the Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives was plundered for its tombstones, which were used as paving stones and building materials.
On June 7, 1967, one day into the Six Day War, Israeli forces liberated the Old City and reunified the city.
In 1968 the government proclaimed a new holiday—Jerusalem Day, or Yom Yerushalayim—to be celebrated on the 28th of Iyar, the Hebrew date on which the city was reunified.
The day is marked with a range of events. Some are spiritual and include the recitation of prayers of praise and thanksgiving in synagogues.
Israelis from all walks of life join in street parades and concerts held throughout the city, notably the Rikud Degalim, or “Flag Dance,” during which thousands march with Israeli flags from the new city center to the Kotel, the Western Wall, in the heart of Old City.
The mayor of Jerusalem is addressing a celebratory reception at the Tower of David museum in the Old City, and state ceremonies and memorial services are held for those who died in the Six Day War.
The state also holds a special memorial for the Jewish immigrants from Ethiopia who walked to Israel, as many died on the way with the hope of seeing the holy city of Jerusalem.
This year’s celebrations are held just a day before the US’ historic relocation of its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
The US embassy move represents the culmination of Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and paves the way for other countries who intend to move their embassies there.
“Big week next week when the American Embassy in Israel will be moved to Jerusalem. Congratulations to all!” President Donald Trump tweeted Saturday.

The IDF issued a stark warning about the culmination of the Hamas terror group’s “March of Return,” which is arriving a day earlier than planned.
By: World Israel News Staff
In anticipation of violence and mayhem planned by the Hamas terror group to coincide with the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem, the IDF projected that the number of Palestinian rioters on Monday could reach 100,000, with hundreds potentially attempting to breach the border fence and attack nearby towns within Israel.
The IDF’s warnings included reference to the potential for an attempted “massacre” of Israeli civilians, as the Palestinian street prepares for the unbridled rioting that generally accompanies “Nakba Day” on May 15, which is the Palestinians’ version of Israel’s Independence Day, invoking the Arabic word for catastrophe.

IDF jets struck a Hamas tunnel near the Erez Crossing in the northern Gaza Strip, an IDF spokesman said Saturday night after earlier reports that missiles had been fired on Hamas targets in the area. The spokesman said the tunnel had been dug meters from the border, but had not yet crossed into Israel.
According to Palestinian sources, around 10 missiles were fired at the targets.
Among the IDF’s targets on Saturday evening were infrastructure targets belonging to the military wing of Hamas near Beit Hanoun in the Gaza Strip, according to Palestinian reports.

The Palestinian Authority sharpened its tone regarding the inauguration of the new American embassy in Jerusalem this coming week.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
May 14th will be the latest “day of rage” called for by the Palestinians if the celebration turning the American consulate in Jerusalem into an embassy takes place on its scheduled date, said senior PLO official Ahmad Majdalani.
As reported in the Jerusalem Post, “The fourteenth of this month will be a huge, popular day of rage everywhere,” Majdalani said, according to Voice of Palestine, the official Palestinian Authority (PA) radio station. “Our people will express their rejection of relocating the embassy to occupied Jerusalem.”
What commonly occurs on such days are mass street protests and rioting, with some violently clashing with Israeli security forces, whether at checkpoints or other sites.
According to Palestinian mouthpiece Wafa, other possible steps may include “enhancing popular resistance,” which are code words for terror attacks on Israelis. The Palestinians may also bring more cases against Israelis in the International Criminal Court in the Hague or “revive the Palestinian Jerusalem municipality,” an apparent reference to the PA’s attempt to run the civil affairs of Jerusalem’s Arab inhabitants through Orient House in violation of the Oslo Accords. Israel closed the Orient House in 2001.

Perfect Timing: America is making King David very proud!
 May 9, 2018
Nearly 3000 years ago, in a landmark achievement, King David established Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Throughout history, ever since the Holy Temple stood in all its glory, through thousands of years of exile and until today, Jerusalem has remained the eternal capital of the Jewish People.
Netanyahu Trump

Once again, Jerusalem history is in the making. And to many, this is another example of the fulfillment of biblical prophesy.
For the first time in over 2000 years, a world power will recognize Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel – and in a most dramatic way. This is historic!
When candidate Donald Trump made a campaign promise to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem, many were skeptical. They wondered: Was this just another candidate’s attempt to gain the pro-Israel vote?
On June 1, 2017, several months after President Trump’s victory, he signed the waiver to avoid moving the embassy, as had been done for decades by former presidents.
“What about his campaign promise,” many asked. “Was it all just rhetoric?”
Jerusalem Embassy Sign

Six months later, on December 6, 2017, Trump said that the US will formally recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, reversing nearly seven decades of US policy. He then ordered the relocation of the US embassy to Jerusalem.
The move was expected to take years, but then came the shocker:

Iran attacks Israel for first time; IDF responds with massive strike
 May 10, 2018
Iran attacks Israel for first time; IDF responds with massive strikeAn IAF F-15 takes off. (IAF)
In a failed assault, Iran attacked Israel directly for the first time in history. The Israel Air Force responded by bombing dozens of Iranian targets in Syria, the largest such operation in decades. 
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News 
Iran’s Quds forces launched a barrage of rockets at IDF bases on the Golan Heights in northern Israel on Wednesday night, the first Iranian attack on Israeli soil in history. The assault prompted an extensive Israel Air Force (IAF) attack on dozens of Iranian targets in Syria.
Shortly after midnight, IDF defense systems identified approximately 20 rockets that the Iranian Quds forces had launched at IDF forward posts on the Golan Heights. The majority of the rockets missed their mark and fell in Syria territory, while four were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system.
The incoming attack set off air raid sirens in communities throughout the north.
The Iranian attack caused no injuries or damage and was essentially a resounding failure.
In response to Iran’s attack on Israeli sovereignty, IAF fighter jets struck dozens of military targets belonging to the Iranian Quds forces in Syrian territory.
As part of the wide-scale attack, said to be the largest in decades and possibly since the 1973 Yom Kippur War, the IAF struck Quds Force intelligence centers, Quds Force logistical command centers, a Quds Force military center and a Quds Force logistical center in Al-Kiswah, as well as an Iranian military base north of Damascus.

By: World Israel News Staff
28 Israel Air Force (IAF) F-15 and F-16 fighter jets participated in a massive airstrike on Iranian targets in Syria and some 70 rockets were fired, according to the Russian Defense Ministry.
The Ministry on Thursday released details on the massive Israeli strike against Iranian military targets inside Syria, which was carried out in retaliation to a Quds Forces rocket attack on Israel’s Golan Heights.
As part of the wide-scale attack, said to be the largest in decades and possibly since the 1973 Yom Kippur War, the IAF struck Quds Force intelligence centers, Quds Force logistical command centers, a Quds Force military center and a Quds Force logistical center in Al-Kiswah, as well as an Iranian military base north of Damascus.
The Russian Defense Ministry said that the Syrian air defenses shot down more than half of 70 missiles fired by Israel.
The Syrian army claimed its air defenses “repelled an Israeli missile aggression on Syrian territories, shooting down scores of missiles.”
A military source quoted by Syria’s official SANA news said the army’s air defenses shot down “tens of Israeli missiles, preventing most of them from reaching their targets,” while some managed to hit a number of air defense battalions, radars and an ammunitions depot.
In response to the Syrian intervention, the IAF attacked a number of Syrian aerial interception systems, including SA-5, SA-17, SA-22, SA-2 batteries.

Iran’s leader dismisses Trump’s words as ‘empty, absurd’Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei (Khamenei's office)
Trump “made a damn mistake” threatening Iran, Khamenei said of the US’ withdrawal from the nuclear deal. 
By: World Israel News Staff
Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei dismissed President Donald Trump’s address in which he announced the US’ exit from the Iran nuclear deal as “empty and absurd,” and charged him of lying “several times.”
“Trump threatened the Islamic establishment and Iranian people that he will do this and he will do that. I say on behalf of the people of Iran: Mr. Trump, you are talking nonsense!” Khamenei said on Wednesday during a meeting with Iranian educators in honor of Teacher’s Week.
He hit back at Trump’s “silly and cheap” comments, which he said included more than 10 lies, claiming that Trump had “made a damn mistake” threatening Iran.
The US withdrawal from the nuclear deal indicates that Iran’s nuclear program was not the real issue, and was only a pretext to weaken Iran, Khamenei added.
“Now you can see, we accepted the JCPOA, but the enmities are still in place,” Khamenei said, referring to the Iran nuclear deal, known officially as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

At least nine Iranians, and possibly as many as 32, were killed in a strike in Syria attributed to Israel.
By: World Israel News Staff
An Israeli strike inside Syria on Tuesday night targeted “missile depots and platforms” in an attack that killed at least nine Iranian soldiers, reported the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), which has assets on the ground.
SOHR attributed the strike to Israel, which hit the Al-Kiswah area in southwestern Rif Dimashq and targeted missile-related infrastructure belonging to Iran’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC).
According to the SOHR, the attack killed at least nine Iranians, possibly IRGC troops or militiamen loyal to Iran. The attack also left several wounded, some of them seriously.
Syria’s official SANA news claimed that the Syrian air defenses intercepted two Israeli missiles and destroyed them.
Russia’s Sputnik news quoted a source at the Beirut International Airport that said that said that Israeli combat aircraft were in Lebanese airspace at the supposed time of the strike in Syria.
The Israeli NZIV site, quoting Syrian sources in Arabic, said that at least 32 individuals were killed in the strike, including a high ranking general and several other officers. Tight security was seen around the hospital to which the bodies were brought.

Insisting that the Iranians are keeping their side of the nuclear accord, the Europeans, Russians and Chinese all say they’ll remain in it too.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
The UK, Russia, France, China and Germany all joined the US in signing the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) with Iran in 2015, and they all immediately backed away from President Donald Trump’s decision Tuesday to pull out of it. In making his announcement, Trump cited the agreement’s deep flaws, which in his view make it worse than having no nuclear deal at all.
The other signatories’ criticism of Trump’s announcement was unanimous, worded more or less strongly, depending on the country.
Noting that the European Union “regrets” the president’s statement, the EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini’s statement called the deal “crucial for the security of the region, of Europe and of the entire world.” She added that since the EU believes Iran is implementing its part of the accord, “The European Union is determined to preserve it.”

Yemen’s Shiite rebels fired ballistic missiles at the Saudi capital on Wednesday, according to the rebels and Saudi state TV, which said they were intercepted by the military.
The cross-border attack by the Iran-allied rebels, known as Houthis, came amid mounting regional tensions after US President Donald Trump decided to withdraw from the nuclear agreement with Tehran.
Saudi forces have intercepted Houthi missiles several times since March 2015, when a Saudi-led coalition launched a war against the rebels and their allies after they captured much of northern Yemen, including the capital, Sanaa.
There was no immediate comment on the strikes on Riyadh from the Saudi military, which said it had intercepted two missiles fired across the border at the southern Jizan province, hundreds of miles away.
The rebel-run Al-Masirah TV said Wednesday’s missiles hit their targets with “high accuracy.”

Iran plots next move under nuclear deal after US withdrawalIranian President Hassan Rouhani (Iranian Presidency Office via AP)
Rouhani described the US’ presence in the nuclear deal as “a nuisance,” and said Iran would determine the deal’s fate in the coming weeks.
By: World Israel News Staff
President Hassan Rouhani ordered Iran’s Foreign Ministry to consult with the remaining signatory countries within the next few weeks regarding the nuclear deal’s future in light of the US’ withdrawal. Specifically, Iran must decide whether to stay in the deal or drop it completely.
Speaking on Iranian TV minutes after President Donald Trump announced the US’ exit from the Iran nuclear deal and the immediate re-imposition of sanctions against Tehran, Rouhani asserted that the nuclear deal is now an agreement between Iran and the five remaining countries.
Going on the offensive, Rouhani described the US presence in nuclear deal as “a nuisance,” and claimed that Washington had not fulfilled its obligations under the pact “from the beginning.”
He also asserted that the US “aims to pressure Iran with psychological and economic war, but it will fail to do so,” claiming that the US’ withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) will “unite the Iranian nation and will promote their commitment.”
Rouhani said that his government has taken required measures and the US decision will not cause major problems for Iran’s economy, a contention that flies in the face of the current economic crisis facing his nation which is one of the worst in its history.

Obama, Kerry Slam Trump’s Withdrawal from Iran Deal
May 9, 2018

call the president’s announcement to nix it a “serious mistake.”
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
It was the signature deal of Barack Obama’s presidency, and President Trump’s dramatic announcement Tuesday that he was withdrawing from it engendered very sharp reactions from both the former president and his secretary of state, John Kerry, who oversaw the negotiations with Iran.
Obama reiterated the main argument he made when Congress was debating in 2015 whether to agree to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the formal name of the nuclear accord.
“Without the JCPOA, the United States could eventually be left with a losing choice between a nuclear-armed Iran or another war in the Middle East,” he said, adding that a nuclear Iran “could embolden an already dangerous regime; threaten our friends with destruction; pose unacceptable dangers to America’s own security; and trigger an arms race in the world’s most dangerous region.”
He also invoked the upcoming US negotiations with North Korea as another reason why the president’s decision was “so misguided.”
“The consistent flouting of agreements that our country is a party to, risks eroding America’s credibility, and puts us at odds with the world’s major powers,” his statement continued.
What Obama left out of his statement is that the JCPOA was an international compact that was entered into by the United States only through an executive agreement signed by Obama. It was never a treaty ratified by Congress. The White House deliberately constructed it differently since a treaty needs to be approved by two-thirds of Congress, a hurdle which many believe the JCPOA never could have overcome.
Indeed, over 50 senators voted to disapprove the deal the three times they tried, while in the House of Representatives the various resolutions introduced against different parts of the deal were handily won by deal’s opponents. However, the requirement in this case was to get veto-proof and filibuster-proof majorities to kill the accord, and this could not be done.
Kerry claims withdrawal hurts Israel
Kerry’s condemnation of the pullout perhaps surprisingly mentioned Israel specifically as being a potential loser from Trump’s move, even though Jerusalem has always stood firmly against the accord and praised Trump unstintingly for keeping his campaign promise to get America out of the “horrible deal,” as Trump repeatedly called it.
“Today’s announcement weakens our security, breaks America’s word, isolates us from our European allies, puts Israel at greater risk, empowers Iran’s hardliners, and reduces our global leverage to address Tehran’s misbehavior, while damaging the ability of future Administrations to make international agreements,” Kerry said in his statement.

The US president says he will announce his decision on whether to keep the US in the Iran nuclear deal on Tuesday.
By: AP and World Israel News Staff
US President Donald Trump was expected to announce his decision on whether to uphold the 2015 nuclear deal, which he has long criticized, by his May 12 deadline. The American leader has signaled he will pull out of the agreement unless it is revised, but he faces intense pressure from European allies not to do so.
“I will be announcing my decision on the Iran Deal tomorrow from the White House at 2:00pm,” Trump tweeted Monday.
The president has been the subject of an intense lobbying effort by American allies to maintain the agreement, with British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson making a last-ditch appeal to the administration in a visit to Washington this week. European leaders say that they are open to negotiating a side agreement with Iran but that the existing framework must remain untouched for that to happen.
Earlier Monday, Trump criticized former Secretary of State John Kerry after reports that he has been promoting the Iran nuclear deal.
Trump said on Twitter: “The United States does not need John Kerry’s possibly illegal Shadow Diplomacy on the very badly negotiated Iran Deal. He was the one that created this MESS in the first place!”

According to Israeli government officials, Iran – furious over the recent attacks on its Syrian weapons depot and drone unit, among other Iranian targets allegedly hit by Israel over the past month in that war-torn country – could be preparing an attack on northern Israel in the near future, Channel 2 news reported Sunday evening.
“If Assad allows Iran to turn Syria into a forward operating base against us, to attack us from Syrian soil, he should know that will spell his end,” Steinitz declared.

Hamas blames Israel for mysterious blast that killed 6, vows revenge
 May 7, 2018
Hamas has vowed to avenge the death of six of its members whom they claim were killed in “a complex security mission after revealing a large spying system” planted by Israel.
By: World Israel News Staff
The Hamas terror organization on Sunday blamed Israel for Saturday’s blast in the Gaza Strip that killed six members of its military wing and vowed to avenge their deaths.
A press statement released by Hamas’ al-Qassam Brigades on Sunday said that six of its members were killed in “a complex security mission after revealing a large spying system” planted by Israel in Gaza.
The blast is widely believed to the result of a “work accident” in which a massive explosive charge went off prematurely.
Israel’s Ynet reported that the terrorists were working to dismantle an unexploded missile fired by Israel.
However, Hamas attempted to depict the incident as a heroic action “to protect the Palestinian people.”
“By sacrificing their lives, our fighters were able to protect the Palestinian people and the resistance from an eminent danger,” the Brigades claimed in the statement. “As a result, a large intelligence scheme set by the Israeli occupation has been thwarted.”

By: AP and World Israel News Staff
A Holocaust survivors’ group is urging German authorities to intensify their search for a notorious neo-Nazi who didn’t show up for her prison sentence.
The International Auschwitz Committee said Sunday it hopes that Ursula Haverbeck, 89, who has been sentenced to two years in prison for incitement and Holocaust denial, will soon be found.
Haverbeck was convicted of Holocaust denial in September 2016 for a letter she wrote to the mayor of Detmold when Reinhold Hanning, a former SS Auschwitz guard, was on trial, claiming the notorious Nazi death camp was merely a labor camp and calling survivors “alleged witnesses.”
In 2015 she was convicted for a similar statement in an interview outside the trial of Oskar Groening, another former SS Auschwitz guard, in Lueneburg. She was convicted of Holocaust denial in November 2016 as well.

Report: Syrian soldiers who downed Israeli fighter jet killed in blast

Report: Syrian soldiers who downed Israeli fighter jet killed in blast(Shutterstock)
 Has Israel settled another score with adversaries in Syria?
By: World Israel News Staff
The Syrian soldiers responsible for the downing of an Israeli Air Force F-16 fighter as it was returning from an operation in Syria in February were killed in a blast over the weekend.
At least eight soldiers, apparently senior officers in Syria’s aerial defense, were killed in an explosion as they were driving towards the Tyas Airbase, where they were stationed, reports indicate.
They were members of Syria’s 150 Battalion, which is entrusted with operating the S-200 aerial defense batteries, according to the reports.
It is yet unknown who carried out the attack. Analysts say that based on photos from the site, the blast was caused by a roadside explosive device rather than a missile launched from a plane.
Syria has remained silent on the incident.
The downing of Israel’s F-16 occurred on Feb. 10 after an Iranian drone infiltrated Israeli airspace from Syria. Israel shot down the drone and then attacked what it said was an Iranian command center, located at the T4 base. Israeli planes came under anti-aircraft fire, and one was struck. Israel responded by destroying Syrian anti-aircraft positions.

Revealed: New details about Mossad’s ‘greatest operation’, exposing Iran’s secret nuclear program
 May 2, 2018
“From an operational aspect, this is amazing, and all credit goes to the Mossad people. This is one of the greatest intelligence operations in the State of Israel’s history,” Israel’s Intelligence Minister said. 
By: World Israel News Staff
New details have emerged about the Mossad’s daring mission in Tehran through it successfully captured half a ton of documents on Iran’s secret and illicit nuclear program.
A New York Times report on Monday quoted a “senior Israeli official” who said that Israel’s Mossad intelligence service discovered the warehouse located in the Shorabad suburb in southern Tehran in February 2016, and had the building under surveillance since then.
“From the outside, this was an innocent looking compound. It looks like a dilapidated warehouse. But from the inside, it contained Iran’s secret atomic archives locked in massive files,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday when he exposed Project Amad, Iran’s secret project to build a nuclear bomb.
“Few Iranians knew where it was, very few, and also a few Israelis,” Netanyahu added.
Mossad operatives broke into the building one night last January, removed the original documents and smuggled them back to Israel the same night, the Times said.

A senior Iranian official declared Tuesday the Islamic Republic will respond “at the appropriate time and place” to purported Israeli missile strikes that killed Iranian troops in Syria.
The comments by Alaeddin Boroujerdi, the chairman of the Iranian parliament’s national security committee, were the first to directly address the attack Sunday night on outposts in northern Syria, widely believed to have been carried out by Israel.
A war monitoring group and an Iranian news agency said the strikes killed more than a dozen pro-government fighters, many of them Iranians.
“Aggression of the Zionist entity against the presence of our military advisers in Syria gives us the right to respond at the appropriate place and time,” Boroujerdi said at a press conference in the Syrian capital

US President Donald Trump declared May “Jewish American Heritage Month,” marking the 12th year of the celebration of Jewish Americans.
“Jewish Americans have helped guide the moral character of our Nation,” the proclamation stated. “They have maintained a strong commitment to engage deeply in American society while also preserving their historic values and traditions. Their passion for social justice and showing kindness to strangers is rooted in the beliefs that God created all people in his image, and that we all deserve dignity and peace.”
He praised Jewish Americans for their contributions in building public service and educational institutions, and taking part in critical civil-rights activism, actions that “have made the world a better place.”
He also lauded the Jewish community for their “enduring tradition of generosity,” which has led them to act as “a light unto the nations” with philanthropic and humanitarian projects, as well as major achievements in science and medicine.
Jewish American Heritage Month began under President George W. Bush in 2006 and has been continued by all presidents since.

By: Alex Traiman/JNS
An estimated 250,000 Israelis—men, women and children—are expected to travel to the gravesite of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai in the small northern village of Meron (technically, a moshav) in the Upper Galilee near Tzfat over a two- to three-day period that commences on Wednesday evening, which begins the 33rd day of the 49-day counting of the Omer between Passover and Shavuot.
The 33rd day, known as “Lag B’Omer,” is associated with the anniversary of the passing (yahrtzeit) of the Mishnaic sage and Kabbalist Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai, also known by the acronym “Rashbi.” It is believed that on the day of his passing, he revealed for the first time teachings that constitute a significant portion of the Zohar, the foundational book of Jewish mysticism.

As US-Israel relations are at an all-time high, many are hoping that the Trump administration will allow Jonathan Pollard, a former American intelligence analyst who spied for Israel, to come to Jerusalem.
By: World Israel News Staff
The Trump administration is seriously considering allowing Jonathan Pollard, a former intelligence analyst for the US government who pleaded guilty in 1987 of spying for Israel and providing it with classified information, to move to Israel, US and Israeli officials at The Jerusalem Post Conference in New York said Sunday.
Originally sentenced to life in prison, Pollard was freed in 2015, albeit with restrictions, among which he is prohibited from leaving the US.
In his defense, Pollard said that he committed espionage because “the American intelligence establishment collectively endangered Israel’s security by withholding crucial information.”
Pollard is the only US citizen who has received a life sentence for passing classified information to an American ally, and several American-Israeli groups as well as US and Israeli politicians have lobbied in his defense, saying the punishment exceeds the crime.

Two more unsuccessful attempts were made to infiltrate Israel Sunday evening in the Hamas-led hostilities at the Gaza border.
In the first incident, IDF forces killed one of two terrorists trying to infiltrate Israel from the southern part of the Strip and captured the other.
In the second, two more terrorists breached the fence and threw a firebomb at IDF soldiers guarding the area. The soldiers accurately returned fire, killing both.
This brings the number of terrorists killed to 44 over the past five weeks of violent demonstrations at the Gaza border that the Palestinians are calling the “March of Return.” A few thousand have been injured as well, whether from inhalation of tear gas, rubber bullets or live fire from the snipers the IDF has stationed at the border to prevent infiltrations.
Last Friday, hundreds of Arabs rushed a barbed wire fence within Gaza to try and dismantle it in what was the most violent attempt yet to cross the barrier, according to a senior IDF officer. The army responded with riot-control measures and live bullets under threatening circumstances.
The response was necessary to prevent those throwing firebombs, rolling burning tires, and making other attempts to physically tear down the security infrastructure from entering Israeli territory. According to the officer, the Hamas government is controlling and managing the violence and intentionally sending women, children and disabled people to the border.

Klaus Iohannis blasted what he described as the “absurd secrecy” surrounding the two-day visit this week of Premier Viorica Dancila to Israel.
“Mrs. Dancila is not up to the job of prime minister of Romania and as a result the government is becoming a liability for Romania. That is why I am publicly calling for Mrs. Dancila’s resignation,” Iohannis said on Friday.
This latest spat comes just a week after Iohannis said Dancila had allegedly overstepped the mark in saying Bucharest was ready to follow the US and move the country’s embassy in Israel to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.

The American embassy in Poland’s capital was the scene of a small rally Wednesday as dozens of the country’s nationalists gathered to protest the issue of compensating Jews for properties lost during the Holocaust.
US legislation was the target of their ire as the House of Representatives unanimously passed a bill the previous day to support Holocaust victims and their families in recovering or being compensated for assets owned before World War II. This follows a unanimous vote for the JUST (Justice for Uncompensated Survivors Today) Act in the Senate last December, and now goes to President Trump for his expected signature to turn it into law.

By: AP
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has vowed to shut down the country’s nuclear test site in May and open the process to experts and journalists from South Korea and the United States, Seoul’s presidential office said Sunday.
The event may serve as a dramatic setup to Kim’s crucial nuclear negotiations with President Donald Trump that may take place in the next few weeks amid widespread skepticism on whether the North will ever fully surrender its nuclear weapons.
Kim made the comments during his summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Friday at a border truce village, where he also expressed optimism about his meeting with Trump, saying the US president will learn he’s “not a person” to fire missiles toward the United States, Moon’s spokesman Yoon Young-chan said.
Moon and Kim during the summit promised to work toward the “complete denuclearization” of the Korean Peninsula, but made no references to verification or timetables. Seoul had also shuttled between Pyongyang and Washington to set up a potential meeting between Kim and Trump, which is expected next month or early June.

Saudi Crown Prince: Palestinians should negotiate peace or ‘shut up’

“It is about time the Palestinians take the proposals and agree to come to the negotiations table or shut up and stop complaining,” Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman stated.

By: World Israel News Staff

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman said the Palestinian leadership needs to accept the peace plans proposed by the US or stop complaining and that the Arab world has lost interest in the so-called Palestinian issue.

In a closed-door meeting with heads of Jewish organizations in New York in March, Bin Salman harshly criticized Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinians’ diplomatic conduct over the past 40 years, according to a report by American news site Axious. The report cited an Israeli foreign ministry cable sent by a diplomat from the Israeli consulate in New York as well three other sources – Israeli and American – who were briefed about the meeting.

According to the report, the Saudi Crown Prince told the Jewish leaders that “in the last several decades, the Palestinian leadership has missed one opportunity after the other and rejected all peace proposals. It is about time the Palestinians take the proposals and agree to come to the negotiations table or shut up and stop complaining.”

He also noted that the Palestinian issue was not a top priority for the Saudi government or Saudi public opinion, saying that Saudi Arabia “has much more urgent and important issues to deal with,” such as confronting Iran’s belligerent expansion in the Middle East.

While leveling harsh criticism against the Palestinians, Ben Salman conceded that in order for Saudi Arabia and other Arab states to normalize relations with Israel, at least some progress on the Israeli-Palestinian diplomatic process would have to be made. He did not demand a final status agreement.

After meeting Netanyahu, the new American secretary of state makes it clear: “If Iran nuclear deal can’t be fixed, it will be nixed.”

By Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News

“We remain deeply concerned about Iran’s dangerous escalation of threats toward Israel and the region.” Those words came from new US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who made the Middle East his first trip abroad only a few days into the job.

Largely ignoring the Israeli-Palestinian issue, Pompeo met Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at IDF military headquarters in Tel Aviv Sunday, where he vowed to “fix or nix” the “flawed’ Iran nuclear agreement, declaring that strong ties with allies like Israel are “critical to our efforts to counter Iran’s destabilizing and malign activity throughout the Middle East, and indeed throughout the world.”

Pompeo said Washington is also focusing on “non-nuclear threats” posed by the Islamic Republic, including its missile systems, support for Hezbollah, fighters in Syria and assistance to Houthi rebels in Yemen.

When Pompeo finally commented on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, it was to say, “The boundaries of Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem remain subject to negotiations between the parties,” and that Washington remains “committed to achieving a lasting and comprehensive peace that offers a brighter future for both Israel and the Palestinians.”

Pompeo then added that the Trump administration is “incredibly proud” to open the new embassy in Jerusalem on May 14th, noting that “by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the seat of its government, we’re recognizing reality.”

Lenny Ben David, a former leading official in the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), told World Israel News (WIN), “Pompeo’s track record dating back to his time in Congress has been very positive toward Israel. His time in the CIA deepened his connection to Israeli intelligence, and he developed a strong appreciation for Israeli capabilities. He is intimately aware of Israelis sharing data with the US. I cannot remember anyone in such a high position in the US government who had a better understanding of Israeli security needs.”

Asked why he thinks Pompeo is not meeting with the Palestinians, he said, “The threats to US interests come from the Iranians and not from the Palestinians. He is well aware of their incursions and mischief around the globe. Add to this that the Palestinian Authority is rejecting contact with the Trump Administration. In Saudi Arabia he heard Prince Mohammed bin Salman say the Palestinians need to either “put up or shut up.” According to Ben David, Pompeo is apparently now giving that same message to the Palestinians.

Trump’s 3 issues: Iran, Iran and Iran
Mark Zell, who heads Republicans in Israel, told WIN that Pompeo does not represent a new US policy direction.

“Under President Trump’s leadership, the top three issues for the US in the Middle East are Iran, Iran and Iran. This has been the case since day one. Having said that, we can see that Pompeo is quite proactive and uses a different tone than former Secretary of State Tillerson. Before even setting foot in his new office in Washington, Pompeo came to the Middle East on his first trip overseas. He visited Saudi Arabia and now Israel. His message is quite clear. He is pushing back against the Iranian nuclear program and against Iranian expansionism and support for terrorism throughout the region.

Middle East Analyst Amotz Asa-el told WIN, “On an emotional level, Pompeo is as pro-Israel as they get. He is a longtime, staunch supporter of Israel. The way he sees it, the Palestinians are a non-factor. He wants to focus on Iran because they are the de-stabilizing force in the Middle East.”

According to Asa-el, “The grand peace plan of Trump was rejected by the Palestinians, so they are irrelevant. He plans to move more forcefully against Iran because they destabilize the entire Middle East. Of course he wants to undo Iran’s nuclear ambitions. But even more than that, he believes that the Islamic regime in Iran can ultimately be toppled. He plans to speak directly to the Iranian people and its silent majority that seeks to depose the radical Islamic regime.”
