“You can take back with you a message to the tyrants of Tehran: Do not test Israel’s resolve,” Netanyahu told Iran’s foreign minister, while displaying part of an Iranian UAV. 
By: World Israel News Staff
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday presented what he believed was a clear-cut indictment against Iran’s mounting regional belligerence when he displayed a piece of the wreckage of the Iranian UAV that was shot down in Israel earlier this month.
“Iran denies that it committed an act of aggression against Israel last week, that it sent a drone into our airspace to threaten our people,” Netanyahu stated during his speech at the Munich Security Conference.
“Well, here’s a piece of that Iranian drone, or what’s left of it after we shot it down. I brought it here so you could see for yourself,” he said, holding up the piece.
Addressing Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, Netanyahu said: “Mr. Zarif, do you recognize this? You should. It’s yours. You can take back with you a message to the tyrants of Tehran: Do not test Israel’s resolve.”

Israel cancels plans to send National Service volunteers on a trip to Poland before Passover in reaction to the Polish premier’s statement that there were “Jewish perpetrators” of the Holocaust.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
After Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki threw another log on the fire over his country’s new Holocaust law by equating individual Polish perpetrators to supposed “Jewish perpetrators” of World War II during a press conference Saturday, Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel (Jewish Home) had had enough.
Ariel, who is in charge of the National Service program in which young women and men who do not serve in the IDF but wish to contribute to the state spend a year or two volunteering in social service or internal security, cancelled plans to send a group to Poland next month. It was the first sanction by Israel against Poland since a bill criminalizing usage of the term “Polish death camps” and prohibiting and references to Polish involvement in the Holocaust was signed into law earlier this month.

A former Palestinian intelligence chief and the Palestinian bar association are suing the Palestinian Authority for alleged CIA-backed wiretapping and human rights violations.
By: AP
A former Palestinian intelligence chief and the head of the Palestinian bar association are suing the Palestinian Authority (PA) after a purported whistleblower alleged the two were targeted, along with many other allies and rivals of PA head Mahmoud Abbas, in a large-scale CIA-backed wiretapping operation.
The claims are contained in a 37-page anonymous document that was been shared widely among Palestinians, mostly on WhatsApp. The document alleges that three of the Palestinian security services set up a joint electronic surveillance unit in mid-2014 and monitored the phone calls of thousands of Palestinians, from senior figures in terror groups to judges, lawyers, civic leaders and political allies of Abbas.
The author describes himself as a former member of the surveillance unit who quit “this dirty job” several months ago because of his growing opposition to Palestinian government practices, including intelligence-sharing with the US. He wrote that President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital provided another impetus to go public.

German court orders silencing of mosque loudspeakers

Claimants argued that the Muslim call to prayer came at the expense of other religions.
By: JNS.org
A German court has ruled to silence loudspeaker calls to prayer from a local mosque that were disturbing local non-Muslim residents.
Authorities in the town of Oer-Erkenschwick in the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia had initially granted the local mosque the right to use the loudspeakers for Friday prayers in 2014.
However, Hans-Joachim Lehmann and his wife, who live just over half a mile away, won an injunction by arguing that the call to prayer violated their own religious rights.
The Lehmans argued that “the Adhan [Muslim call to prayer] contains phrases like, ‘Allah is great. I testify that there is no deity but Allah.’ This is an exclusively Islamic claim at the expense of other religions.”

“We have stated many times that we won’t accept the statements that Israel, as a Zionist state, should be destroyed and wiped off the map,” Lavrov declared.
By: Adina Katz, World Israel News
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov condemned Iranian threats to wipe Israel off the map, Russia’s TASS News Agency reported.
Speaking at the opening of the Valdai International Discussion Club’s conference, titled “Russia in the Middle East: Playing on All Fields,” Lavrov said, “”We have stated many times that we won’t accept the statements that Israel, as a Zionist state, should be destroyed and wiped off the map. I believe this is an absolutely wrong way to advance one’s own interests.”
He added, however, that the regional conflicts and instability should not be solely focused on Iran.
“By the same token, we oppose attempts to view any regional problem through the prism of fighting Iran. This is happening in Syria, Yemen and even the latest developments around the Palestinian issue, including Washington’s announcement of its decision to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, are largely motivated by this anti-Iranian stance,” he claimed.
Yet Israel considers Iran the biggest threat to the Jewish state and to the region. At a conference last month at the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) in Herzliya, IDF Chief of Staff Lieutenant General Gadi Eizenkot pointed to five different fronts that he sees as Israel’s biggest security challenges – Lebanon, Syria, Judea and Samaria, Gaza and Sinai – but added that Iran has a hand in all those threats.
“Above those five fronts there is one big and prominent threat, which is the Iranian threat,” Eizenkot said. “It is a multi-tiered threat, with the first and central aspect being their striving to achieve nuclear capabilities. The second aspect is their aspiration for regional hegemony and influence and their desire to create a Shiite crescent that extends from Iran to Iraq, Syria and Lebanon [in the north], as well as Bahrain, Yemen and Gaza in the south.”

‘Time is now to act against Iran,’ says US national security adviserUS National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster (Sven Hoppe/dpa via AP)
“What’s particularly concerning is that this network of proxies is becoming more and more capable,” McMaster said at the Munich Security Conference, adding that the time has come to act.
By: JNS.org
US National Security Adviser Herbert Raymond McMaster warned the international community that the time has come to act against Iranian proxies in the Middle East.
“What’s particularly concerning is that this network of proxies is becoming more and more capable, as Iran seeds more and more… destructive weapons into these networks,” McMaster said at the Munich Security Conference, according to Reuters.
Sounding the alarm on the urgency of halting Iranian efforts across the region, McMaster said, “So the time is now, we think, to act against Iran.”
McMaster accused Iran of planning to use “Hezbollah-style” proxy armies in Iraq and Syria to weaken and destabilize regional Arab governments.
He criticized the international community’s 2015 nuclear accord signed by Iran, the United States, the United Kingdom, Russia, France, China, Germany, and the European Union, saying the world should address “serious flaws in the Iran deal and counter Iran’s destabilizing activities, including its development and proliferation of missiles.” McMaster singled out German, Russian, Chinese, Japanese and South Korean investments as helping to fund Iran’s missile program and terror activities in the Middle East.

Israel strikes multiple targets in Gaza; Rocket hits Israeli homeAn IDF tank on the Gaza border (TPS)
IDF fighter planes struck Hamas terrorist targets in Gaza in response to an earlier attack. Sirens were sounded as an Israeli home was reportedly hit by a rocket fired from Gaza.
By: World Israel News and TPS
“IDF fighter planes struck Hamas terrorist targets in the Gaza Strip in response to the terrorist incident earlier today,” an IDF spokesman said in a statement, referring to the launching of an explosive device targeting an IDF patrol Saturday. Four soldiers were wounded, two seriously.
“Today’s incident on the Gaza Strip border is severe. We will respond appropriately,” Netanyahu stated regarding the attack, followed by the IDF retaliatory strikes.
The military hit several targets, including a Hamas terror tunnel under construction from the Zeitoun neighborhood of Gaza City toward Israeli territory, a military compound in the Netzarim region belonging to Hamas and housing military installations, and a Hamas military compound in the Khan Younes region.
In total, the IDF attacked six targets belonging to Hamas.

In what may be most serious incident since the conclusion of Operation Protective Edge, Palestinian terrorists launched an IED targeting an IDF patrol at the Gaza border, injuring four soldiers. 
By: World Israel News Staff
An IDF tank struck an observation post in the southern Gaza Strip in response to the detonation of an explosive device along its border.
Four IDF soldiers were wounded – two seriously and two moderately – when the device exploded near their military jeep. They were evacuated by helicopter to Soroka hospital in Be’er Sheba.
No special instructions were given to southern residents in the aftermath.
According to Palestinian officials, the observation post targeted by the IDF belonged to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist group. There were no casualties on the Palestinian side, they said.
Explosive devices at the Gaza border have been discovered on a number of occasions since the end of Israel’s war on Hamas, Operation Protective Edge, in the summer of 2014, but this incident is considered the most serious.
In March 2017, the IDF defused two improvised explosive devices (IEDs) near the Gaza Strip’s northern border security fence. The IEDs were placed in an off-limits zone on the Palestinian side of the security fence “in order to attack IDF forces operating on the border,” the IDF said.

The patients warded off with Syndrome K were not bothered by Nazi guards, who feared entering the room with the infectious disease. But the patients were not act ill. They were Italian Jews - and the hospital doctors thought up the fictitious disease in order to protect them from the Nazis. This is the story of those brave people.

US Jewish leaders are urging the resignation of Keith Ellison, deputy chair of the Democratic Party, over previously undisclosed meetings with notorious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan.
By: Rafael Medoff, JNS.org
Major Jewish groups, including the leading organization representing Jewish Democrats, are strongly criticizing Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) over his previously undisclosed contacts with Rev. Louis Farrakhan, head of the anti-Semitic political and religious movement Nation of Islam. Some Jewish leaders are urging Ellison to step down as deputy chairman of the Democratic Party.
When Ellison first ran for Congress in 2006, he insisted he had severed all ties with Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam, which Ellison had belonged to in the 1990s. Similarly, when Ellison ran for chairman of the Democratic Party in 2016, he reiterated that he had long ago distanced himself from Farrakhan.
But a series of reports in The Wall Street Journal and The Daily Caller in recent days revealed that Ellison has participated in at least three meetings with Farrakhan since entering Congress.

Analysis: Police recommendations against Netanyahu – a coup d’état?
 February 16, 2018
Analysis: Police recommendations against Netanyahu – a coup d’état?Israeli Chief of Police Roni Alsheikh and PM Netanyahu (Miriam Alster/Flash90)
Netanyahu was elected as the Prime Minster, not as the Pope. Accordingly, he should be judged primarily on the basis of his political and strategic accomplishments, not his personal morality.
What we are witnessing is, in effect, little less than an attempt at a bloodless coup d’état – conducted, not by the military, but by the messianic, indeed manic, mainstream media, buttressed by affiliated like-minded civil society elites, in a frenzied effort to impose their minority worldview on the nation…Enraged by their inability to rally sufficient public support on substantive policy issues, to unseat the object of their visceral enmity, Benjamin Netanyahu, and nonplussed by the tenacity of his “delinquent” hold on the premiership, despite their undisguised loathing, his political rivals have despaired of removing him from office by normal electoral means…Instead, they have descended into an unprecedented nadir of mean-spirited malevolence in Israeli public life….(Coup d’état?, February 22, 2015, The Jerusalem Post)
These are words I wrote, almost exactly three years ago, just prior to Netanyahu’s somewhat unexpected reelection in March 2015. In large measure, they are just as relevant now as they were then.
No uncritical pro-Bibi apologist
To those who have read my columns over the years, I have never been an uncritical, pro-Bibi apologist. On the contrary, I have excoriated a number of his policy decisions, regularly and severely, and have even called for his resignation…on matters of policy.
Thus, for example, I strongly condemned his 2009 Bar Ilan speech, in which he accepted the idea of Palestinian statehood. Likewise, I was severely critical of his decision to release over 1000 convicted terrorists (2011) to secure the release of captured IDF soldier, Gilad Shalit — and was even more opposed to a subsequent (2013) release of prisoners as a futile gesture to assuage the then-Secretary of State, John Kerry, in the vain hope of coaxing Mahmoud Abbas into renewing negotiations.
I vehemently disapproved of his ill-advised attempt at rapprochement with Turkey — particularly the compensation paid for the casualties incurred when Israeli commandoes had to defend themselves against attempts to lynch them on the Turkish vessel,

Israeli court rules desertion from Eritrean army grounds for refugee status

Israeli court rules desertion from Eritrean army grounds for refugee status(Kobi Richter/TPS)
The ruling by the Appellate Court, which  specifically handles cases pertaining to migrants, will be keenly watched by the some 27,500 Eritrean asylum seekers in Israel, many of whom claim asylum on similar grounds.
By: Yona Schnitzer/TPS
In a decision that could set a precedent regarding the status of Eritrean asylum seekers, the Jerusalem Appellate Court ruled Thursday in favor of an Eritrean national who asked to appeal the state’s rejection of his asylum request on the grounds that desertion from the Eritrean army justifies receiving protected refugee status.
The ruling by the Appellate Court, which  specifically handles cases pertaining to migrants, will be keenly watched by the some 27,500 Eritrean asylum seekers in Israel, many of whom claim asylum on similar grounds.
“The appellant has provided sufficient proof that there exists a concrete concern for his safety due to the political views the Eritrean authorities attribute to him as a result of his desertion,” ruled the court.
He becomes the 12th Eritrean to refugee status out of 8,529 asylum requests filed as of the end of 2017.
Military service in Eritrea is mandatory, and usually involves intense physical labor. Furthermore, Eritrean soldiers have no predetermined discharge date, and their service can often last decades. Many Western countries consider the dangers facing deserters should they return to Eritrea sufficient cause for granting refugee status, however, Israel’s policy has been that they do not qualify for refugee status.
Presiding judge Elad Azar  criticized the fact that the Israeli Administration of Border Crossings, Population and Immigration does not judge asylum requests on a case-by-case basis, but rather rejects them en masse, based on guidelines handed down by the Ministry of Interior. According to those guidelines, being an Eritrean deserter is not sufficient cause for granting 
refugee status.

An estimated 70,000 people attended one of the largest-ever anti-Islamic terror, pro-Israel rallies on Wednesday in Calcutta, India.
The event was organized by the Hindu Samhati, who have a long history of supporting strong India-Israel relations.
Vijeta Uniyal, an Indian journalist based in Europe, addressed the rally, praising Zionism as the national liberation movement of the Jewish people.
At a time when anti-Semitism is on the rise in Europe and Islamic terrorism threatens Jews and Israelis, hundreds of millions of Indians stand with Israel, he declared.
As anti-Semitism is on the rise in Europe and radical Islam attacks Jews and Israelis, hundreds of millions of Indians are standing with Israel, Uniyal stated.
In a video address after the rally, Michael Dickson, executive director of StandWithUs in Jerusalem, expressed appreciation to the tens of thousands who attended the rally.
“Our historical friendship goes back far in history,” he said, citing the common values of modernity, democracy, human rights, women’s rights, “and we are pioneering technologies together that will hopefully make the world a better place.”
The rally marked the 10th anniversary of the founding of the Hindu Samhati nationalist movement. Banners stating support for Israel included, “Jerusalem: Eternal Capital of Israel.”

Analysis: Are Israel and Iran on the verge of war?(Shutterstock)
Iran’s decision to send a drone into Israeli airspace and the IDF response targeting Iranian positions in Syria amount to a marked escalation of the conflict. What’s next?
By Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
Did the Iranians send a drone into Israeli air space as a provocation? Was Israel’s retaliation strong enough to deter future Iranian aggression? World Israel News (WIN) spoke with several top analysts in an effort get answers following the weekend escalation.
The decision by Iran to send a drone into Israeli airspace and the subsequent punishing air strikes by Israel targeting Iranian military facilities in Syria on Saturday amount to a marked escalation in Iranian-Israeli confrontation. Indeed, it was the first direct military clash between the two nations, enemies since the Iranian Revolution in 1979. But neither side appears to want a full-scale war right now.
These latest developments may be a way to test Israel’s declared ‘red lines’ and resolve to push back against clear provocations.
From an Iranian perspective, the drone that entered into Israeli air space was designed to send a signal to Israel that it will not accept further Israeli strikes against its targets in Syria. Another message from the Iranians was that they can enter Israeli air space and will continue to do so unless Israel stops its cross-border raids.

A Qatari envoy on Thursday called on the international community to send aid to the people of the Gaza Strip, saying the dire conditions in the territory could potentially spill over into renewed violence.
In an interview, Mohammed Al-Emadi, the head of Qatar’s Gaza reconstruction committee, said he hopes that his country’s support for the territory, highlighted by a $9 million pledge on Thursday, will encourage other nations to join the effort. He also shined rare light on his working relationship with Israel, which does not have formal diplomatic relations with the energy-rich Gulf state.
“When you want to do work in Gaza, you have to go through the Israelis,” he said. “Without the help of Israel, nothing happens.”

Analysts: Russia has not condemned the Israeli air strike in Syria, as Moscow has its own concerns about Iran’s ‘permanent’ military presence in Syria; Washington strongly on Israel’s side, but only marginally engaged on the issue.
By Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
There was scrambling in Moscow and Washington this weekend, as the world superpowers viewed a potentially explosive conflict emerging between Israel and Iran that was playing out on the Syrian border. The US State Department blasted Tehran for provoking the confrontation, while Russia told Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to avoid triggering a ‘new spiral’ of clashes.
The United States voiced unequivocal support for Israel’s right to defend itself, following the interception of an Iranian drone in Israeli airspace, and blamed Iran for the escalation of violence. Washington broadened its criticism to include Iranian aggression throughout the Middle East, saying its behavior “threatens peace and stability.” The Pentagon weighed in, saying, “Israel is our closest security partner in the region and we fully support Israel’s inherent right to defend itself against threats to its territory and its people.”
Netanyahu has made several recent trips to Russia to urge President Vladimir Putin to rein in Iranian moves in Syria. Just last month the Israeli leader appealed to Putin, warning that Israel will not allow Iran to create permanent bases inside Syria.

Three Palestinian terrorists attempted to blow up a military court in Samaria on Wednesday, but Israeli forces securing the compound were successful in thwarting the attack.
The terrorists arrived at the courthouse, where they aroused suspicion.  A search of their clothing revealed they were carrying four pipe bombs.
The court was shut down, while sappers were alerted to the scene and safely dismantled the explosive charges.
The terrorists were arrested and taken for questioning.
No one was injured in the incident.
This is at least the seventh failed attempt by Palestinians to bomb this target, and the third attempt in recent weeks. The latest attempt occurred on Tuesday.
Similar incidents occurred earlier this month, twice in December, twice in October, and before that in May.

Accusations of anti-Semitism surface for US Republican candidates

Accusations of anti-Semitism surface for US Republican candidatesFredy Burgos, a Republican candidate in Virginia. (AP 
GOP leaders are in the process of ousting Republican candidates such as Arthur Jones, Paul Nehlen, and Fredy Burgos, the latter of which expressed his preference for Christian rather than Jewish elected officials.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Fredy Burgos is a Republican party official in Virginia who serves on the state’s GOP central committee and holds an elected position on the party committee of Fairfax County, which is comprised of suburbs of Washington, D.C. He is a fervent supporter of President Trump and has been known to make anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant statements that have made his colleagues uncomfortable.
This week, however, Burgos apparently crossed the anti-Semitic line as well. Burgos’ troubles arrive on the heels of a Republican candidate in Illinois named Arthur Jones being exposed for his anti-Semitic and racist views.
While campaigning for a non-Jewish candidate who is running for the chairmanship of the Fairfax County Republican Committee against a Jewish rival, Burgos posted on Facebook a 19th-century quote from John Jay, America’s first chief justice of the Supreme Court, that declared that it is the privilege of a Christian nation “to select and prefer Christian rulers.”
In the post, Burgos also wrote, “Having a preference for Christians over non-Christians as political leaders is not bigoted. It is a preference and a duty we are allowed.”
A deluge of criticism followed, with top Republicans in the state calling for his removal. Rep. Barbara Comstock, whose district includes a substantial Jewish community, said, “Fredy Burgos and his bigoted, backwards views have no place in the Republican Party — the party of Lincoln and Reagan. It is long past time for him to step aside from any official Republican position.”
John Whitbeck, the state party chairman, said that the process for removing Burgos from his position, which involves a petition and a two-thirds vote of committee members, has already begun.
Several Jewish organizations thanked the Virginia GOP for taking such swift action. The Anti-Defamation League’s Washington office commended them “for making it clear that religious intolerance has no place in the state.”

Haley told the UN Security Council that Iran’s attack on Israel from Syria last weekend was a “wake-up call” to the world.

By: JNS.org
US Ambassador to the United Nations (UN) Nikki Haley told the Security Council on Wednesday that Iran’s drone incursion into Israel last weekend was a “wake-up call” to the world over the Islamic Republic’s belligerence in the Middle East.
An Iranian drone breached Israeli territory from Syria last weekend and was shot down by an IAF attack helicopter. As a result of the incursion, Israeli jets attacked a Iranian mobile command center near Damascus, where the drone originated from. However, Syrian forces responded with anti-aircraft fire at the Israeli jets, damaging one jet and forcing the pilots to eject after they crossed back into Israeli airspace.
Haley told the UNSC that the incident was an “egregious and unprompted escalation” by Iran.

WATCH: Netanyahu departs for ‘most important security conference in the world’
 February 16, 2018
 Print  Email  10 Comments
Upon his departure for Munich Thursday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, on behalf of the entire people of Israel, expressed his deepest condolences to the families of the slain school children and teachers in the horrible massacre in Florida.
He then continued in Hebrew, saying: “I am leaving now for the most important security conference in the world – the Munich Security Conference. I will present proof of Iran’s involvement in the recent events in the north and I will reiterate our determination to defend ourselves by ourselves – without any restrictions – against any threat.”
Asked about Turkey’s relationship with Iran, Netanyahu said, “What is not new is Iran’s ties with Turkey as well as with the Palestinians. That is nothing new. What has changed is that Turkey has such close ties with Israel.”
Regarding the current police probe, the prime minister said, “My wife and I are thrilled – there’s no other word for it – by the support, the sympathy, and the warmth that so many Israeli citizens have shown us,” since the police recommended his indictment Tuesday evening.
He vowed to continue to serve the State of Israel “responsibly and with determination and from a deep sense of security, because I’m certain that in the end, the truth will win.

Poland Set to Criminalize Kosher Slaughter

Poland Set to Criminalize Kosher SlaughterA Kosher slaughtering knife. (Kobi Gideon/Flash90)
Poland’s parliament is again taking controversial legal action that harms Jews.
By: JNS.org and World Israel News Staff
Just one week after passing a controversial law outlawing statements indicating Polish responsibility for crimes against Jews during the Holocaust, Poland’s ruling party has sponsored a new bill including a clause that would criminalize kosher meat slaughter.
If the law is passed, anyone found guilty of slaughtering animals in accordance with traditional Jewish practice will face a prison sentence of up to four years.
The restrictions against kosher slaughter are contained within a general bill on animal welfare and include a ban on exporting kosher meat, which is expected to affect many of Europe’s Jewish communities. Israel currently imports some of its kosher meat from Poland.
The law stipulates that animals cannot be slaughtered in an “unnatural state,” unless they stand on all their feet. Kosher slaughter typically involves lifting the animal in order to eliminate pressure on the knife that would cause the animal pain and render the slaughter unkosher.
The Polish parliament initially outlawed kosher slaughter in 2013, but Poland’s courts reversed the decision, saying it contradicted the principle of freedom of religion.

Congress unanimously passed the Hamas Human Shields Prevention Act, which sanctions the terrorist group for using civilians as human shields.
By: World Israel News Staff
The US House of Representatives on Wednesday unanimously passed the Hamas Human Shields Prevention Act, which sanctions Hamas for violating human rights standards by using civilians as human shields.
The legislation was introduced by Congressmen Joe Wilson (SC-02) and Seth Moulton (MA-06), joined by original co-sponsors Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (FL-27) and Congressman Ted Deutch (FL-22).
The bill states that it is US policy to condemn the use of human shields by Hamas as an act of terrorism and a violation of human rights and international humanitarian law, and to act against those engaging in or supporting the practice.
According to the bill, “The President shall prohibit property transactions and U.S. entry with respect to: (1) each foreign person or entity that is a member of or acting on behalf of Hamas and that is responsible for or complicit in Hamas’ use of human shields; and (2) each foreign person or entity and each agency or instrumentality of a foreign state that has significantly facilitated any act with respect to such use of human shields, provided material support to a listed person or entity, or attempted to facilitate or support such acts or persons.”
The bill also notes the IDF’s “common practice” to drop aerial leaflets, make announcements over radio, place phone calls, and send text messages warning of a coming military strike before targeting terrorists operating near Palestinian civilian areas.

Opinion: European officials are apologists for Arab-Islamic repression, terrorismIran's President Hassan Rouhani with the EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini. (Iranian Presidency Office via AP)
European officials have not only been mute about the Iranian regime’s attacks on its own people. They have also been missing “a robust defense of Western values.”
By: Giulio Meotti, The Gatestone Institute
Federica Mogherini has been busy in recent weeks, appeasing one repressive regime after another. Mogherini, the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, began with Iran. “Mogherini was mute on the popular uprising in Iran,” wrote Eli Lake at Bloomberg.
“She waited six days to say anything about the demonstrations there. When she finally did, it was a mix of ingratiation and neutrality. ‘In the spirit of openness and respect that is at the root of our relationship,’ she said, ‘we expect all concerned to refrain from violence and to guarantee freedom of expression'”.
Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom, who was proud to lead “the first feminist government in the world”, merely tweeted that she was “following” the demonstrations in Iran. UN Watch condemned her for being silent. A year ago, Swedish Trade Minister Ann Linde and 10 other female members of the Swedish government marched in front of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani wearing hijabs. While real Iranian girls were marching to protest the mandatory hijab, Ann Linde was retweeting about laws against climate change during the severest days of Iranian repression in the streets.

The US is boosting aid to Jordan by more than $1 billion, in spite of Trump’s threats to punish countries that don’t agree with US policies.
By: AP
Despite repeated threats to punish countries that do not agree with US policy in the Middle East, the Trump administration is set to boost aid to Jordan by more than $1 billion over the next five years.
President Donald Trump has vowed to cut aid to nations that oppose the US, yet rhetoric appears to have hit reality with Jordan, a critical American partner in the volatile Middle East that has opposed the administration’s Mideast approach.
Jordan, together with another 127 countries, voted in December to condemn the US for recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and has criticized the US for withholding millions in funding for so-called Palestinian refugees, many of whom live in Jordan.

Riyadh denies claims Israel-bound Indian flights will use Saudi airspace

Riyadh denies claims Israel-bound Indian flights will use Saudi airspaceCrown Prince Mohammad bin Salman (White House/Shealah Craighead)
Conflicting reports have emerged with regard to India Air’s recently announced direct flights to the Jewish state.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Israeli media reported Wednesday that Saudi Arabia has given its approval for Air India to operate direct flights from New Delhi to Tel Aviv using its airspace. This would save passengers over two hours of flying time, as opposed to the route that Israel’s airline, El Al, must take to avoid the Arab state, which still has no official diplomatic relations with Israel.
El Al immediately demanded that the government allow it, too, to use the new route, so that it wouldn’t lose all its business to its new Indian rival, which could easily charge less for its services because of the amount of gas it would save on the shorter run.
However, several hours later, Saudi officials denied ever having given such permission.
The report came as Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj was in Riyadh, the Saudi capital, on an official visit, Reuters reported.

By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
IDF forces carried out counterterrorism operations throughout Judea and Samaria on Sunday night, during which they uncovered explosive charges, seized illegal weapons and arrested terror suspects.
Border policemen uncovered four pipe bombs and battle gear in the Arab village of Barta’a, in the north. The discovery was the result of prior intelligence work, the police stated.
The explosive charges were neutralized by sappers on site.
Forces carrying sweeps in the Benyamin and Etzion areas also seized three illegal assault weapons.
Since the beginning of 2017, Israeli forces have seized over 220 firearms and have shut down some 35 illegal Palestinian weapons production plants.
Tens of Palestinian terror attacks have been committed using firearms, many of them self-made.
Israeli forces have arrested more than 160 suspects tied to the production and selling of illegal weapons, used in many cases against Israeli civilians.
Similarly, forces arrested 21 Palestinian suspects wanted for acts of terrorism. They were turned over to the Shin Bet (Israel’s Security Agency) for questioning.

Netanyahu lashed out at Israel’s chief of police as the investigation into the prime minister’s conduct approaches a critical point.
By: World Israel News Staff and AP
Ahead of an expected announcement concerning a corruption probe into Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s conduct, the Israeli leader lashed out at Israel’s chief of police for allegations he had made against him.
Police Chief Roni Alsheikh said on Wednesday that “powerful figures” had hired people to “sniff around” the police officers investigating Netanyahu.
Alsheikh also rebuffed as “untrue” Netanyahu’s claim that most police recommendations are eventually discarded by the attorney general.
Netanyahu responded in a Facebook post, saying Alsheikh’s comment was a “hallucinatory and false suggestion” and that “a great shadow” was cast on the entire investigation against him.
Opposition member Avi Gabbay said that Netanyahu was “acting like a criminal with his unprecedented attack on the commissioner and the police.”
“Instead of requesting that they wrap up the investigation as soon as possible, Netanyahu has chosen to attack the police commissioner, and by doing so, he is trying to dismantle peoples’ trust in the legal system,” he added.
Netanyahu has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing throughout the corruption probe, saying it was an undemocratic attempt to unseat him.
Israel media say police are expected to submit their recommendations concerning the investigation to the attorney general as early as next week.
Netanyahu has been questioned by police on at least six occasions.
Case 1000 alleges that he received expensive gifts from rich supporters, including Israeli-born movie mogul Arnon Milchan, possibly in return for favors.
Case 2000, concerns possible collusion between Netanyahu and Yedioth Aharonoth publisher Noni Mozes. The prime minister allegedly proposed to use his power to weaken Yedioth’s main rival, Israel Hayom, through the passage of a law curbing the latter’s distribution in return for more positive coverage in Yedioth.
Netanyahu’s mantra throughout the probe has been that “there will be nothing, because there is nothing.”

The UK’s Jewish community experienced another surge in anti-Semitic attacks last year, an increase over 2016 which was itself a record year.
By: World Israel News Staff
The United Kingdom experienced a record-high number of anti-Semitic incidents in 2017, this according to a new report published by a UK-based anti-Semitism watchdog.
The UK’s Community Security Trust’s (CST) Anti-Semitic Incidents Report recorded 1,382 anti-Semitic incidents nationwide in 2017, the highest total CST has ever recorded for a year.
This is a 3 percent increase from the 1,346 incidents recorded during 2016, which was itself a record annual total. The previous record high was in 2014, when CST recorded 1,182 anti-Semitic incidents.
In addition to the 1,382 anti-Semitic incidents, a further 872 reports of potential incidents were received by CST in 2017, but were not deemed to be anti-Semitic and are not included in this total. Many of these 872 potential incidents involved suspicious activity or possible hostile reconnaissance at Jewish locations; criminal activity affecting Jewish people and buildings; and anti-Israel activity that did not include anti-Semitic language, motivation or targeting.
The incidents were generated by a combination of factors, including an increase in all forms of recorded hate crime and publicity regarding alleged anti-Semitism in the Labour Party, the CST said.

The family of three terror victims has petitioned Israel’s High Court of Justice to approve the complete demolition of the family home of the terrorist who murdered their loved ones.
By: Yona Schnitzer/TPS
In July, Omar al-Abed, a Palestinian terrorist infiltrated the home of the Salomon family in Neve Tzuf and stabbed the residents, who were in the middle of a Friday night Shabbat meal. Yosef Salomon (70), and his children Chaya (46) and Elad (36) were killed in the attack, and Yosef’s wife Tovah was wounded.
In addition to murder charges, Israeli authorities have also demolished the section of the assailant’s family’s home in which he was living – a common Israeli response to terror attacks. But the family has asked the court to approve the complete demolition of the home.
Ordinarily, both Israeli and international law prevent collective punishment against the families of terrorists. However, the Salomon family asserts that since Omar’s family knew of his intention to carry out an attack, a fact that was proven in court last August, the entire family home should suffer the same fate as the section in which Omar resided.
“We came to court today to ask to destroy the house of the terrorist,” Michal Salomon, the widow of Elad who was murdered in the attack told Tazpit Press Service (TPS). “It is an important step against terror,” she added.
“Michal came to show the judges that behind the debate there are faces, there’s a tragedy, and they have to help us prevent the next murder,” Dan Landau, Michal’s father also told TPS. “We came here to prevent the next family from [experiencing] the misery and the agony that my daughter has,” he added.

US Ambassador Friedman feuds with left-wing Israeli paper over Palestinian terrorDavid Friedman, US Ambassador to Israel (Hillel Maeir/TPS)
A volley of tweets between the US Ambassador to Israel and the publisher of an Israeli daily exposed a growing rift between those who support Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria and their critics.
By: World Israel News Staff
US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman took to task the Israeli newspaper Haaretz on Friday morning based on a highly critical opinion article related to a recent terror attack.
Specifically, Haaretz, a left-wing daily published in English and Hebrew, ran a piece by its correspondent Gideon Levy about recent Palestinian terror attacks on Israeli civilians in which the writer called Har Bracha (“mount of blessing”), the community of victim Itamar Ben Gal, a “mountain of curses” and accused the “occupation-friendly ambassador” of “deception.”
Friedman had tweeted in response to the attack earlier in the week, lamenting that an ambulance he donated to Har Bracha had to be used to respond to terror attacks, instead of being used to deliver babies.
In response to Levy’s criticism in Haaretz, Friedman tweeted on Friday, “What has become of @Haaretz? Four young children are sitting shiva [mourning] for their murdered father and this publication calls their community a ‘mountain of curses.’ Have they no decency?”
Haaretz Publisher Amos Schoken tweeted back, “Mr. Ambassador, Gideon Levy is right. As long as the policy of Israel that your Government and yourself support is obstructing peace process, practical annexation of the territories, perpetuating apartheid, fighting terror but willing to pay its price, there will be more Shivas [mourning],” he wrote.
The attack to which this exchange refers occurred on Monday and involved an Israeli-Arab terrorist stabbing to death 29-year-old Rabbi Itamar Ben-Gal, a father of four on the way to a family celebration. The tragedy occurred just weeks after Palestinian terrorists murdered Rabbi Raziel Shevach, who left behind a wife and six children.


Iran: ‘We will stay in nuclear deal’ even if US exits

Iran: ‘We will stay in nuclear deal’ even if US exitsIran's President Hassan Rouhani with the EU's Federica Mogherini. (Iranian Presidency Office via AP)
The Iranian president claims that even if the US exits the nuclear deal over what Trump calls its “fatal flaws,” the Islamic Republic will abide by the agreement with its other signatories.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
According to the Financial Times, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani publicly committed his country to the nuclear deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in a news conference on Tuesday, even if the United States ultimately decides to exit it.
“We will stay in the JCPOA as long as our interests are observed,” Rouhani said. “The US staying in or out will not be the main criteria for our decision.”
Iran signed the 2015 JCPOA with the US, Britain, France, Russia, China, and Germany. In return for agreeing to curtail its efforts to build nuclear weapons for a decade, crippling economic sanctions were lifted. The regime’s financial state immediately improved, as its primary export – oil – has doubled since the deal was implemented, and representatives of multinational companies have flocked to Tehran to ink business deals and discuss investments in many fields.
The billions brought in have certainly kept Iran from collapsing, but there has yet to be an economic turnaround – and this is extremely important for the hardline Muslim regime whose population is young, restless, and idle. The youth unemployment rate in Iran has averaged nearly 26% in the last seven years, according to tradingeconomics.com, representing one of the factors that led to a series of public protests in December and January over the government’s economic policies. These demonstrations shook the authorities somewhat, as Rouhani himself acknowledged last month, saying that “people had economic, political and social demands.”
This may mean that Tehran wants to avoid President Trump closing the financial spigots by walking away from the JCPOA.
“Mr Rouhani and his diplomatic team are safeguarding the nuclear deal with their teeth and claws,” said one pro-reform regime insider according to the report. “In practice, the US is already out of the deal. But we will not reciprocate their move, and hope that we can keep . . . selling oil to Europeans and doing business with them.”
Rouhani’s comments show that Tehran is determined to fight for the agreement’s survival even if Washington reimposes sanctions on the country, counting heavily on all the other world powers to keep trading with his country.

SpaceX’s new rocket blasted off on a mission toward Mars.
By: AP
SpaceX’s big new rocket blasted off Tuesday on its first test flight, carrying a red electric sports car aiming for an endless road trip past Mars.
The Falcon Heavy rose from the same launch pad used by NASA nearly 50 years ago to send men to the moon. With liftoff, the Heavy became the most powerful rocket in use today, doubling the liftoff punch of its closest competitor.
For SpaceX, the private rocket company run by Elon Musk, it was a mostly triumphant test of a new, larger rocket designed to hoist supersize satellites as well as equipment to the moon, Mars or other far-flung points. For the test flight, a red sports car made by another of Musk’s companies, Tesla, was the unusual cargo, enclosed in protective covering for the launch.

Polls: Majority of Israelis support deportation of illegal migrants

Polls: Majority of Israelis support deportation of illegal migrantsAfricans in Israel. (Miriam Alster/Flash90
While the Israeli government’s decision to deport Africans who illegally entered the country has been challenged on the international stage, polls demonstrate a majority of Israelis support this policy.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
A new poll published by the Israeli Democracy Institute (IDI) and Tel Aviv University shows that two thirds of the Israeli population supports the government’s policy to expel unlawful entrants to the country. Forty-five percent of those polled said they were “very supportive,” while 21% said they “certainly supported” it. Only 24% were “certainly” or “very” opposed.
Six hundred people, including both Arabs and Jews, were queried as to their views on the subject, and the left-right divide was clear to see. Broken down by political affiliation, 78% of Likud and more right-wing parties supported the policy, while only 35% of Labor and centrist voters agreed with them. Among the most left-wing voters, this number dropped to 25%.
Israel Hayom commissioned a similar poll in January, surveying 500 Jewish Israelis. Conducted by the New Wave Research Institute, 58% said they supported the deportation policy, while 23% said that they disagreed. The remainder had no opinion. The paper reported that the poll also revealed that 51% of respondents believed illegal migrants were in Israel only seeking work, while 37% thought that they were genuinely seeking asylum, and 12% said they did not know.
The government maintains that most migrants came to Israel to better their lives economically, not because they are fleeing persecution, and that every country has the right to uphold its immigration laws. A High Court decision last August agreed that it was lawful to deport the refugees as long as they went willingly and that the third country receiving them was safe.
On Sunday, Israeli authorities sent out thousands of deportation notices to single, working-age, male Eritrean and Sudanese refugees, telling them they had 60 days to leave for an unnamed African country, with a “stable government” that has “developed tremendously over the last decade and has absorbed thousands of returning residents as well as migrants from various African countries.” This country is widely believed to be Rwanda. Their flight will be free, and they will be given $3,500 as they leave to help them restart their lives.
Protestors have maintained that the government is barely trying to examine if the asylum-seekers have a case, with thousands of requests backlogged, and that of the few that have been checked, only 11 people have been granted refugee status.

Secret Arafat diaries reveal covert deals with Italy after cruise ship hijacking

Secret Arafat diaries reveal covert deals with Italy after cruise ship hijackingPalestinian leader Yasser Arafat (AP/Burhan Ozbilici)
An Italian magazine claims that Palestinian arch-terrorist Yasser Arafat made a secret deal not to attack Italian citizens and accepted bribes from the Italy’s leader.

By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News

In an exclusive report Sunday, the Italian L’espresso magazine revealed new information about the cordial relationship between the PLO terror organization and the Italian authorities, as gleaned from the secret diaries of the PLO’s founder and first Palestinian Authority president, Yasser Arafat.

The 19 volumes of personal writing cover the years between 1985 and 2004, the year Arafat died in a French hospital. They were given to a French foundation on condition that the content of the diaries would be used only as “study documents,” and would not provide content for books or films.

The diaries detail Arafat’s relationships with many nations’ leaders, including such late presidents as Fidel Castro (Cuba), Saddam Hussein (Iraq), and Shimon Peres (Israel). However, the weekly published translated excerpts dealt with high-up officials in the Italian government, including former prime ministers Bettino Craxi and Silvio Berlusconi, and foreign minister Giulio Andreotti.

While Naftali Bennett had planned to speak in Poland on Wednesday to address the new “death camps” law, Polish officials apparently quashed the visit.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Israeli Minister of Education Naftali Bennett was slated to head to Poland on Wednesday on an official trip to meet government officials and students, as well as visit survivors and World War II memorials.
The Polish government, however, announced that it had cancelled the visit, ostensibly due to Bennett’s criticism of a Polish law that criminalizes calling any Nazi-run labor, concentration or death camp “Polish.” The Polish president has two and a half weeks left to sign it into law.
The Israeli government has taken the position that while it is true that the Germans ran everything in Poland during World War II, this legislation could put a damper on Holocaust research as well as help cover up the role of many Poles in the persecution and murder of Jews.
In a statement from his office, Bennet said, “I am determined to say explicitly [what] history has already proved — the Polish nation had a proven involvement in the murder of Jews during the Holocaust.” He added that he will tell his hosts, “I came to tell the truth where the truth occurred – and it’s not dependent on any law.”

UK: Labour Party activist equates Jewish skullcap with Nazi flagA Kippah, Jewish skullcap. (Shutterstock)
Daniel Waterman condemned wearing a kippah, a Jewish skullcap, or a Star of David as comparable to waving a Nazi flag, amid a string of anti-Semitic remarks.
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
Labour Party member and author, Daniel Waterman, has been exposed as an anti-Semite and bigot who, for years, has been making extensive use of Facebook, posting under the pseudonym “Dolong B Blavats.”
The UK-based Campaign Against anti-Semitism (CAA) revealed that Waterman has been making outrageous claims, including that “compulsive” behavior related to the Holocaust was “causing Israelis to behave like Nazis"
The “International Definition of Anti-Semitism” clearly identifies “drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis” as a manifestation of anti-Semitism.

In November 2015, Waterman condemned wearing a kippah, a Jewish skullcap, or a Star of David in public, comparing these acts to waving a Nazi flag. He demanded that Jews eschew the practice in order to distance themselves from what he described as “Israel’s terrorism against Palestinians.”

He went on to insist that failure to follow his advice would mark Jews as “provocateurs” and “belligerent fools,” and render them responsible for any hostility they encountered.

In January, he accused a Jewish journalist and “the entire rest of the pro-Israel pro-Zionist community” of being “real self-hating Jews,” claiming their protests against pervasive anti-Semitism within the Labour Party is a conspiracy to silence criticism of Israel.
In September 2017, he accused “other Jews” of “s***ting all over the Holocaust”, adding that he was “ready to give it up and ‘just’ be a human being.”
In the same month, he posted what was presumably intended to be a joke. “Hey I have a good idea! Why don’t we have another World War? I missed all the good bits at the end of the last one!” On being told this was not funny, he replied “Really, I thought WWII was a gas!”, in an apparent reference to gas chambers used by the Nazis to industrialize the genocide of European Jewry.

“In my people’s darkest hour, a few noble men and women bucked their superiors to save Jewish lives. Israel salutes them. We shall forever honor their memory,” Netanyahu stated.

By: World Israel News Staff and AP
Israel’s foreign ministry on Monday unveiled a monument honoring diplomats who saved Jews during the Holocaust.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who also serves as Israel’s Foreign Minister, dedicated the site for the 36 diplomats whom the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial has recognized as “Righteous Among the Nations.”

The “Righteous Among the Nations” designation is a title bestowed upon gentiles who rescued Jews during the Holocaust. Israel has recognized over 26,500 such individuals. It’s the country’s highest honor given to non-Jews who risked their lives to save Jews during World War II.
The most famous was Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg who is credited with helping to save at least 20,000 Jews before he mysteriously disappeared.
Captain Francis Foley of the United Kingdom and Ho Feng-Shan of China were also mentioned by Netanyahu.
The monument honors those who “acted by the dictate of their conscience, without regards for personal and professional consequence.”
“Six million of our brothers and sisters were slaughtered in the worst atrocity in history.

Jason Greenblatt, President Donald Trump’s special Mideast envoy, assailed Hamas for its massive investment in terrorism and its attempts to destroy Israel, which come at the expense of its obligations to the people of Gaza.
Responding to a report that Israeli security forces recently caught a huge shipment of explosive-producing materials en route to terror groups in Gaza, Greenblatt tweeted Sunday that “Hamas should be improving the lives of those it purports to govern, but instead chooses to increase violence and cause misery for the people of Gaza.”
The materials were discovered within a shipment of medical equipment. Israel removed the explosive materials and the medical supplies were sent to Gaza, for the benefit of the civilian population.

By: World Israel News Staff
Israel’s Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman on Wednesday warned that Lebanon would “pay the full price” if Hezbollah attacks Israel. “If citizens of Tel Aviv are forced to sit in shelters, all of Beirut will too,” warned Liberman.
Responding to questions posed by Maj. Gen. (ret.) Amos Yadlin during the 11th Annual International Conference at the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS), Liberman said that Israel is determined and ready to contend with all scenarios, emphasizing the need to include not just Hezbollah, but also Lebanon and Syria as part of the northern front in the event of a war.
Israel will end any flare up in the north as fast as possible with a decisive victory, Liberman asserted. If given the choice, the IDF would rather not to have boots on the ground, but Israel must be ready for that.
“Lebanon’s army and Hezbollah are the same — they will all pay the full price in the event of an escalation,” Liberman said.
With regard to the nuclear deal with Iran, Liberman said that it is a bad deal because it gave legitimacy to Iran’s nuclear program, its military plans, and its missile development. The deal put the Middle East into a nuclear weapons race, he said.
Liberman emphasized that Iran is a threat to the entire world, not just Israel, and Israel must convince the international community of this. “The Iran deal has to be changed,” he said.

By: AP and World Israel News Staff
Arkady Waispapir, one of the last known survivors of the Nazis’ Sobibor death camp, has died in Ukraine. He was 96.
The Berlin-based Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe said Monday that Waispapir died January 11 in Kiev.
Born in southern Ukraine in 1921, Waispapir was captured by the Germans while serving in the Soviet Army. He was sent to the Sobibor camp in Poland in 1943 because he was Jewish.
At Sobibor, Waispapir was ordered to a work detail, one of the few inmates spared immediate death in the camp’s gas chambers.
Prisoners organized an uprising against the guards in October 1943, and succeeded in killing nearly a dozen.

The US expressed serious concerns over Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces’ use of chlorine gas against civilians.
By: World Israel News Staff and AP
According to recent reports, a chlorine gas attack occurred last Thursday, injuring over 20 civilians, including children in the Idlib Province near Saraqib.
Accusing the Syrian regime of using the gas to “terrorize innocent civilians,” US State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert noted in a Monday statement that this attack is the sixth such reported instance in the past 30 days in Syria.
“We implore the international community to speak with one voice, taking every opportunity to publicly pressure the Assad regime, and its supporters, to cease its use of chemical weapons and hold those responsible accountable for these brutal attacks,” Nauert stated.
“Russia ultimately bears responsibility for the victims in East Ghouta and countless other Syrians targeted with chemical weapons since Russia became involved in Syria,” she said, referring to a siege by Assad forces that has caused a humanitarian crisis.
“By shielding the Syrian regime from accountability, Russia has not lived up to its commitments,” Nauert stated, demanding that all parties in Syria “unequivocally stop” the use of chemical weapons.
“The people of Syria are suffering; the rest of the world is watching,” she concluded.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that “massacres” in Idlib and its countryside have claimed 240 casualties during about 45 days of intensive shelling in the province.
US Ambassador Nikki Haley accused Russia on Monday of protecting Assad from responsibility for what she said were multiple chlorine gas attacks on civilians in recent weeks.
Haley told the UN Security Council (UNSC) that Russia has delayed adoption of a council statement condemning the use of chemical weapons.
Russian Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia retorted, “It’s completely clear to us the goal is to basically accuse the Syrian government of chemical weapons use where no perpetrators have been identified.”

A man attempting to enter the presidential complex in Tehran with a sword was shot by guards. His motives are yet unclear.
By: AP and World Israel News Staff
Guards securing the presidential complex in Tehran on Monday shot and wounded a man carrying a sword as he attempted to enter the compound.
Iran’s official IRNA news agency quoted Hamid Reza Goudarzi, deputy security chief, as saying that the 35-year-old man was taken to the hospital. There was no information on his condition or possible motives for trying to enter the presidential complex.
IRNA reported that the man had managed to pass through the first checkpoint, one of several.
It wasn’t clear whether President Hassan Rouhani was in the complex on Monday.
Attempts to enter the presidential compound with a sword are rare, though Iranian men occasionally carry swords and daggers, especially when in traditional clothing.
Police have tried to dissuade people from carrying such arms and occasionally confiscate the weapons.
Iran recently experienced a wave of country-wide protests over the dire economic situation and corruption in the country.

The Trump administration nailed a number of individuals and entities with terror sanctions based on their ties to Hezbollah.
By: AP
Taking aim at Iran’s global footprint, the Trump administration on Friday hit six people and seven businesses linked to Hezbollah with terror sanctions, calling it “the first wave” in a pressure campaign that will escalate throughout the year.
The sanctions aim to squeeze Hezbollah financier Adham Tabaja, who is already designated by the U.S. as a global terrorist, by freezing out a network of companies in Lebanon, Ghana, Liberia and elsewhere. The Trump administration said companies and their executives act on Tabaja’s behalf, forming “conduits” of funding for the Lebanon-based terror group.
“We will be relentless in identifying, exposing, and dismantling Hezbollah’s financial support networks globally,” Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the Russian pilot is dead but had no immediate further details.
A Syrian militant in the area told the Associated Press that the Russian pilot was shot and killed when he resisted capture by opening fire from his pistol on the militants who tried to capture him alive.
Moscow has not confirmed the downing of its plane or the killing of a pilot.
The militant refused to be identified by his real name because was not authorized to speak to the media.
A video circulating on social media shows a dead man with a bloodied face as bearded gunmen stood around him. One of them shouts: “He is Russian.” The authenticity of the video could not be independently confirmed but it corresponds to events reported by the AP.
The Turkish military says two of its soldiers have been killed in Syria and a third was killed on the Turkish side of the border in an attack by Syrian Kurdish militiamen.
The military says Saturday’s deaths were related to Turkey’s operation against the Syrian Kurdish-held enclave of Afrin, codenamed Olive Branch. One of the soldiers was killed when a Turkish tank was hit in Afrin.

Intense fighting flared up Monday as Turkish troops and their allies advanced on a Kurdish enclave in northwestern Syria, the third day of Ankara’s offensive to oust a US-allied Kurdish militia from the area, according to the militia and a civil war monitoring group.
Skirmishes between Turkish troops and Kurdish fighters also broke out farther east in Syria, threatening to widen the scope of the new front in the Syrian war that pits Turkey against Washington’s main ally in the region.
“The US will back down in its support of Kurdish militias in Syria because Turkey is more determined than the Americans.” That’s the view of former Foreign Ministry Director General and former Israeli Ambassador to Turkey Alon Liel. Liel told World Israel News (WIN), “Turkey is coordinating its actions with Russia and they view the Kurdish controlled regions along their border as spoils of war.”

By: TPS and World Israel News Staff
Four Palestinians were apprehended early Thursday evening as they attempted to cross the border from the Gaza Strip into Israel. An IDF spokesperson said one one of the infiltrators was carrying two knives and a hand grenade.
According to reports, the suspects were observed by IDF spotters as they approached the border fence and were apprehended immediately after crossing over into Israel. The suspects were taken for questioning and the IDF is looking into whether they planned to carry out a terrorist attack.
Weapons such as the ones discovered by the police Thursday night can enter Gaza through smuggling operations. Israel’s Crossings Authority thwarted 1,226 attempts to smuggle contraband into Gaza in 2016, representing a 165% increase from 2015.

By: AP and World Israel News Staff
Heinz Jakob “Coco” Schumann, a famous jazz guitarist who survived Nazi concentration camps to return to his musical career in Berlin after World War II, has died. He was 93.
The German dpa news agency reported Monday that his record label Trikont said Schumann died Sunday in Berlin.
Schumann made a name for himself as a young musician in Berlin’s underground jazz and swing scene in the 1930s. He was arrested in 1943, after authorities learned his mother was Jewish, and deported to the Theresienstadt concentration camp in German-occupied Czechoslovakia at the age of 19.
There he played in a band known as the “Ghetto Swingers” before being transferred to Auschwitz in 1944, where he played music to entertain the camp guards.
Schumann lost his grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins in the Holocaust, while his parents survived. His father, a convert to Judaism, had ingeniously succeeded in keeping his Jewish wife hidden from the Nazis by declaring her dead after a disastrous fire
After the war Schumann immigrated to Australia before returning to Berlin in the mid-1950s and re-establishing his career, becoming a celebrated Jazz guitarist.

State Attorney permits exhumation of 17 graves for genetic testing, hopes findings will shed light on the fate of missing Yemenite children.
By: Margot Dudkevitch, World Israel News
The State Attorney’s office on Tuesday approved the request of 17 families of Yemenite origin, whose children went missing decades ago, to exhume the remains from 17 graves for genetic testing, to determine if they are the remains of family members. The Council of the Chief Rabbinate approved the move as long as the procedure is conducted in accordance with Jewish ritual law.
For decades, more than 1,000 families, mostly immigrants from Yemen, as well as the Balkans, North Africa and other Middle Eastern countries, have maintained their children were kidnapped from hospitals in Israel and put up for adoption. At the time, many parents were told by the authorities their children had died.
Arutz Sheva noted that a number of committees were established over the years to examine the allegations. The Bahlul-Minkowski Committee set up in 1967 revealed that of the 342 cases studied, 316 revealed that the child in question had died, two were adopted and the fate of the remaining 24 children remains unknown.

A London paper reports that Hamas believes an attack by Israel is imminent. Netanyahu responds that Israel “not interested” in war but will defend itself.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Al Hayat, an Arabic-language London-based newspaper, reported Sunday that the leaders of Hamas in the Gaza Strip are calculating that the chances of war with Israel are “at 95 percent” and assume it could erupt within days.
The paper further said that the military wing of Hamas has declared a state of the highest alert, evacuating its headquarters and various sites in the Strip, such as the border areas, and spreading its armed forces in civilian areas for fear of an Israeli attack. Other Gaza terror groups, including Islamic Jihad, were reportedly preparing in a similar manner.
The possible cover for such an offensive, they claim, could be the biennial Israeli-American Juniper Cobra training exercise, which is set to take place in the coming days. The drill involves thousands of soldiers and will simulate a major conflict in which Israel is attacked with thousands of missiles from the northern and southern borders at once.
Israeli jets have also struck the Strip twice in the last few days. However, this was in retaliation for two rockets fired from Gaza, one on Thursday night that caused alarms to go off in the Ashkelon Regional Council, and one on Friday night, when sirens sounded in the Shaar Hanegev Regional Council. Three Hamas terror targets were hit in response, the IDF said. Two were part of a military facility and one was an observation post.

The Palestinians are pursuing diplomatic war against Israel and the US at various international bodies.
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
The Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) decided in its meeting in Ramallah on Saturday evening to take action against Israel at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), the UN General Assembly and the International Criminal Court (ICC).
The Executive Committee said in a statement following the meeting chaired by Palestinian Authority (PA) head Mahmoud Abbas that it asked the government to begin devising plans to disengage from Israel at the security, political, economic and administrative levels and to submit these plans to the Executive Committee for approval.
The Palestinians are also seeking to end their economic dependence on Israel as stipulated in the Paris Economic Agreement (PEA). Under the PEA, a mechanism was set up through which Israel collects taxes—value-added tax and customs fees—on behalf of the PA to the tune of about $100 million per month. Israel then transfers the money to the PA.
Israel and the PA currently cooperate on various levels. It is unclear how the PA could survive such a drastic move. Suspending security coordination with the IDF could endanger the Palestinian regime, which relies on the IDF to maintain security and fend off attempts by rival Palestinian factions to overthrow it.

The Cabinet voted to approve a motion to legalize the Havat Gilad outpost near Shechem following the recent murder of a resident of the community by Palestinian terrorists.

By: TPS

The Cabinet voted unanimously Sunday to approve Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman’s motion to legalize the Havat Gilad outpost near Shechem (Nablus) in the wake of the murder of Rabbi Raziel Shevach, a resident of the community, by Palestinian terrorists on January 9.

The Cabinet decision stated that the new settlement would be built on private and or state lands and would have independent municipal status under the umbrella of the Samaria Regional Council.

Prior to the meeting, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said he had spoken with Shevach’s widow Yael and told her that the government would legalize the outpost.

“The government will provide for the status of Havat Gilad in order to facilitate orderly life there,” Netanyahu said. “For the murderers – exacting justice. To those who sanctify death, we will sanctify life. This is the essence of the government’s policy.

“I told her that our policy is being carried out in two spheres. First, exacting justice. Yesterday our forces were again in action in an effort to apprehend the last of the assassins and their accomplices in the murder of Rabbi Shevach. We will not rest until we bring them to justice. And we will bring them all to justice,” Netanyahu said.
“Our second policy guideline is to strengthen settlement,” he continued. “Whoever thinks that through the reprehensible murder of a resident of Havat Gilad, a father of six, that he can break our spirit and weaken us, is making a bitter mistake.”

Israeli Ambassador to UN slams Poland’s Holocaust law

At a Holocaust memorial event, Israel’s ambassador to the UN warned against Polish legislation that many believe is attempting to rewrite history.

By: Margot Dudkevitch, World Israel News

Addressing an annual service to mark International Holocaust Memorial Day at the United Nations General Assembly, Israel’s Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon warned the world against allowing a legislation to pass that denies the truth and rewrites history.

Despite his warning, hours after the ceremony, the Polish Senate passed the controversial bill that will outlaw blaming the country of Poland for crimes of the Holocaust committed on its soil.

“On this International Holocaust Remembrance Day, we tell our children the unthinkable stories of this dark chapter in human history so that no tragedy of its kind will ever happen again,” Danon said. Warning against allowing any legislation that denies the truth and attempts to rewrite history, Danon added “as we honor those few brave souls who stood strongly against evil and saved Jews from death, we must not forget those who cooperated with the Nazi evildoers. We will firmly oppose any attempt to distort the truth.”

Danon also criticized the UN Human Rights Council report released earlier Wednesday saying, “The information published today by the Human Rights Council is more of the same.” The Council he said, “will now join history’s infamous list of anti-Semites and bigots who ultimately failed in their attempts to devastate the Jewish people.”

Among those attending the ceremony were UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, General Assembly President Miroslav Lajcak and dozens of ambassadors from around the world.

Eva Lavi a Holocaust survivor from Krakow in Poland was also invited by Danon to address the ceremony. Lavi and her parents were saved by Oskar Schindler who put them on his list and convinced the Nazis at the time that despite her young age she was vital to his factory war efforts.

“I don’t forget who saved us from the Nazis’ hell, First the almighty God, to whom I pray and thank every day, second Mr. Oskar Schindler and third, my mother Felicia Ratz. We were on our way to his factory in Czechoslovakia but were sent to Auschwitz instead. Everyone knows what that name represents. But Schindler managed to get us out of this camp and we continued to the factory,” she said.

Lavi went on to say that now, in her eighties, she is a proud citizen of Israel and that all her family are serving or served in the Israel Defense Forces. “The Holocaust should be a significant warning of what might happen, when racism, violence and anti-Semitism permeate the world,” she warned.

Hamas calls US president “mentally ill” after the US State Department put Ismail Haniyeh on its global terror list.
By: Margot Dudkevitch, World Israel News
A decision by the United States to place Hamas political chief Ismail Haniyeh on its global terror list is a dangerous development, Hamas warned. In a statement released Wednesday following the US decision, Hamas called the decision a “violation of international law, which has given the Palestinian people a right to defend themselves against [Israeli] occupation and to choose their leaders.”
The decision “demonstrates the full American bias in favor of the Israeli occupation and provides an official cover for Israeli crimes against the Palestinian people,” the statement, published by Aljazeera, said.
The Palestinian Authority, who in a bid for unity unsuccessfully has sought to reconcile with Hamas a number of times, failed to respond to the US State Department’s decision that effectively bars Haniyeh from visiting the United States, holding assets there or doing any business with Americans. For decades the US has deemed Hamas a terror organization.
In its press release, the US State Department said Haniyeh has close links with the Hamas military wing Izzadin al-Qassam and “has been a proponent of armed struggle including against civilians.”
Haniyeh “has been involved in Hamas’ campaign of terrorism against Israel for years and even decades,” Breitbart quoted Nathan A. Sales, the State Department’s Coordinator for Counterterrorism, as saying. Hamas, he said, is a “terrorist organization committed to the destruction of the State of Israel.”
Calling Haniyeh an “icon of Palestinian resistance,” Ghazi Hamad, a Hamas official in the Gaza Strip, deemed the US’ decision part of a wide campaign against the Palestinians since US President Donald Trump took office. Calling the American president “mentally ill,” Hamad said “the US Administration has been trying to impose its misguided policies on the Middle East,” reported Haaretz.


First Temple-era structure, rare silver coin found in Jerusalem dig

Israeli archaeologists uncovered impressive and unique finds on the outskirts of Jerusalem.
By: World Israel News Staff
At excavations in Ein Hanniya in the Rephaim Valley National Park, archaeologists made a number of major discoveries. These include a large and impressive system of pools from the Byzantine period (4th–6th centuries CE), in addition to a fragment of a “capital,” which is the topmost part of a column. Capitals such as the one found at Ein Hanniya were typical of royal structures in the First Temple period. Archaeologists also uncovered a rare silver coin from the 4th century BCE, one of the most ancient ever found in the Jerusalem area.
These remarkable and significant finds were unearthed in Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) excavations at the site between 2012 and 2016. The excavations were carried out as part of the establishment of the park, situated near the Biblical Zoo.
Irina Zilberbod, the excavation director on behalf of the IAA, said “the most significant finding in the excavation is a large and impressive pool from the Byzantine period.”
The pool was built in the center of a spacious complex at the foot of a church that once stood there. Roofed colonnades were built around the pool that gave access to residential wings.
“It’s difficult to know what the pool was used for – whether for irrigation, washing, landscaping or perhaps as part of baptismal ceremonies at the site,” she said.
The pool’s water drained through a network of channels to a magnificent and very special structure, the first of its kind known in Israel – a fountain (nymphaeon).
Settlement in the area of Ein Hanniya apparently began at the time of the First Temple and perhaps even earlier.
First temple era royal estate
The most outstanding find from this period uncovered in the excavation is a fragment of a proto-Ionic capital – an artistic element typical of structures and estates of the kings of the First Temple period. The image of such a capital appears on the Israeli 5-shekel coin.
Similar capitals have been found in the City of David in Jerusalem, which was the capital of the Kingdom of Judah, and at Ramat Rachel, where one of the palaces of the kings of Judah was found. Such capitals were also found in Samaria, Megiddo and Hazor, which were major cities in the Kingdom of Israel.
According to the archaeologists, the site at Ein Hanniya may have been a royal estate at the time of the First Temple. After the destruction of the First Temple, settlement was renewed at the site in the form of an estate house that was inhabited by Jews.
One of the most ancient coins discovered in Jerusalem
The most significant find from this period is a rare silver coin, one of the most ancient so far discovered in the Jerusalem area – a drachma, minted in Ashdod by Greek rulers between 420 and 390 BCE.
The coins, pottery, glass, roof tiles and multicolored mosaic tesserae from the Byzantine period unearthed in the excavation attest to the fact that it was during this period (4th–6th centuries CE) that the site reached its zenith.
Jerusalem District Archaeologist Dr. Yuval Baruch said archaeologists believe “that some early Christian commentators identified Ein Hanniya as the site where the Ethiopian eunuch was baptized.”
The baptism of the eunuch by Philip was one of the key events in the spread of Christianity.
The park, an extraordinarily beautiful site incorporating archaeology, an ancient landscape and a unique visitor experience, will open to the public in the coming months. A great deal of attention was paid to restoring the imposing fountain structure, including cleaning and replacing stones in its façade based on historic photographs and paintings.

Minister Bennett: New system combats online anti-Semitism in real-time

Minister Bennett: New system combats online anti-Semitism in real-timeMinister of Education Naftali Bennett (Gershon Elinson/Flash90)
Israel has launched a system that monitors online anti-Semitism and hate speech and converts it into actionable data.
By: World Israel News Staff
Minister of Diaspora Affairs Naftali Bennett on Thursday revealed the Anti-Semitism Cyber Monitoring System (ACMS), a unique system developed by the Ministry over the past year that provides real-time data and analysis of online anti-Semitism.
The system was launched ahead of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, which was marked on Saturday.
“Sunlight is the best disinfectant. From today every anti-Semite online should know he is exposed, the hatred he spreads is being watched and he will be held responsible,” Bennett stated.
“It’s time to set a mirror in front of our enemies and expose the ugly face of the modern anti-Semite, he who tweets swastikas instead of branding them in the street,” he added, vowing that “from now we will know who the leading anti-Semites are and they will be dealt with.”
Bennett cautioned that anti-Semitism “has not vanished, it has shifted shape and moved from the street to the web.”
“We must turn the spotlight to the places from which anti-Semitism stems and spreads, as part of the mutual responsibility Jews have for one another,” he said, “especially during the week we commemorate International Holocaust Remembrance Day.”
The ACMS system, which has been operational for a month, has already gathered shocking data about online anti-Semitism.
Some 409,000 anti-Semitic posts and tweets, written by 30,000 people, were monitored and analyzed.
Every day some 200,000 suspected posts and tweets are scanned by the system, while some 10,000 anti-Semitic posts and tweets are discovered on a daily basis.
The three cities spreading the most anti-Semitism as of now are Santiago in Chile, Denipro in Ukraine and Bucharest in Romania. In the West, Paris and London are the most anti-Semitic cities in the cyber world.
Of note, on December 6, following President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, online anti-Semitism grew nine-fold compared with previous days.
ACMS was developed with Israel’s Ministry of Defense and provides real-time interactive maps showing anti-Semitic activity. It can dissect and display the information based on multiple factors, including geography, language, date and more.
Based on self-learning artificial intelligence, the program recognizes key words and patterns, while analyzing the context text in which they were written.
The ACMS uses the working definition adopted by IHRA (International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance) and monitors English, French, German and Arabic posts.
In addition to the software, the Ministry of Diaspora Affairs established a command center, manned by experts who receive the data from the system and present it to the relevant officials.
When needed, the ministry works with the authorities in other countries to take concrete steps against those spreading hate.
The platform will also provide data for Israeli officials holding diplomatic meetings, as it can present data relevant to any meeting with foreign dignitaries. It will also be a tool for journalists and researchers looking for data on the topic.

German FM in Israel rejects US Jerusalem move, warns of European ‘frustration’

German FM in Israel rejects US Jerusalem move, warns of European ‘frustration’German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel (AP)



https://worldisraelnews.com/german-fm-israel-rejects-us-jerusalem-move-warns-european-frustration/?During a visit to Israel, German FM Sigmar Gabriel blasted those who oppose a Palestinian state, demanding a two-state approach to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

By: Margot Dudkevitch, World Israel News

Are those who reject a two-state solution for Israel and the Palestinians willing to pay the price of perpetual conflict, German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel asked while addressing the 11th annual Conference of Tel Aviv University’s Institute for National Security Studies on Wednesday.

“Some members of Israel’s cabinet are explicitly against the two-state solution but the two-state solution has always been the foundation of our engagement for Israeli-Palestinian peace and for the large amount of funding that Germany and Europe make available in support of the situation on the ground,” said Gabriel, reported the Jerusalem Post.

As a friend and close ally of Israel, Gabriel said Germany needs to know if Israel no longer supports a negotiated solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. “How do you want Israel’s future to look? Are you prepared to pay the price of perpetual occupation and conflict, a price that will continue to grow if there is no hope for self-determination on the Palestinian side?” local media reports quoted him saying.

He went on to note that currently across Europe and even in Germany there is growing frustration concerning Israel’s actions, which he claims are making it increasingly difficult to explain Germany’s continued support for Israel.

Gabriel added that Germany is looking forward to the day it too will transfer its embassy to Jerusalem, but emphasized that this will only happen in the framework of a peace deal that includes two states that share Jerusalem as their capital.

While rejecting US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, he vowed Germany will always defend Israel and the Jewish people’s “essential and historic connection” to Jerusalem. He also took to task the American Administration’s policy towards Israel and questioned whether it is a good thing that the United States seems to be taking Israel’s side more than ever before.

Referring to the nuclear deal struck with Iran, he noted that while Iran has profited immensely from wars an chaos in the Middle East, Germany opposes annulling the deal struck with Iran in 2015.

Earlier Wednesday, Gabriel also met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. It was Gabriel’s first visit to Israel since the diplomatic fiasco last April when Netanyahu cancelled a scheduled meeting with him after Gabriel chose to meet with members of the Breaking the Silence Group. At the time Netanyahu said he would not meet with officials who choose to meet with groups that slander IDF soldiers and call them war criminals.





UN publishes partial ‘blacklist’ of corporations that do business with Israel

The UNHRC has taken another step to promote boycotts of Israel.
By: World Israel News Staff and JNS.org
The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) on Wednesday published an interim report on companies engaging in business with Israeli companies based in Judea and Samaria and the Golan Heights, but stopped short of actually naming the companies.
In a report issued by the UNHRC, the organization noted that 206 companies are accused of doing business in Israeli settlements, but stated that since only 64 of the companies had been contacted about the supposed allegations, the council was forced to delay the publication of their names.
“Once OHCHR (Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights) has been in contact with all 206 companies, and subject to determinations of their responses and non-responses, OHCHR expects to provide the names of the companies engaged in listed activities in a future update. Before the determinations on the companies are made public, OHCHR will notify the companies concerned,” stated the report.
The UNHRC report, which was first commissioned in 2016, seeks to create a database of companies doing business in Judea and Samaria, eastern Jerusalem and Golan Heights and has been slammed by both Israel and the US as a “blacklist” that will encourage boycotts of the Jewish state.
The panel has no power to levy sanctions or otherwise punish companies. However, the list could put pressure on the UN Security Council (UNSC) to follow up and act against Israel, and could be used as a weapon by advocates of boycotts against Israel.
American companies on the list reportedly include Caterpillar, TripAdvisor, Priceline.com, Airbnb and others.
The report’s partial publication came just hours before the UN was set to mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day at its headquarters in New York.
Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Danon, harshly condemned the publication of the report and its timing.
“On the day that the UN is marking International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the UNHRC has chosen to publicize this information about the number of companies operating in Israel. This is a shameful act which will serve as a stain on the UNHRC forever. We will continue to act with our allies and use all the means at our disposal to stop the publication of this disgraceful blacklist,” Danon vowed.
In August, Danon condemned “this shameful step” as “an expression of modern anti-Semitism [which] reminds us of dark periods in history. Instead of focusing on the terrible humanitarian problems plaguing the globe, the Human Rights Commissioner is seeking to harm Israel, and in doing so has become the world’s most senior BDS activist.”
Danon called on the UN, and the international community as a whole, to “halt this dangerous policy and put an end to this anti-Israel initiative.”
Will the US take action?
“The United States has been adamantly opposed to this resolution from the start” and has fought against it before several UN bodies, State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert previously stated. “These types of resolutions are counterproductive and do nothing to advance Israeli-Palestinian issues.”
US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley has threatened to act against the UNHRC if it publishes the report. She has warned that the US may pull out of the council if the list of companies is published.
In a speech to the council last June, Haley railed against its makeup and demanded that Israel be removed as a permanent fixture on its agenda. She also hinted that the U.S. may quit the council.
The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) responded to the report by calling on Congress to take action to prevent “unfair boycotts against Israel.”
“The UN Human Rights Council has issued a highly biased and anti-Israel report targeting the only democracy in the Middle East. It is very concerning that this report could be used to lay the groundwork for boycotts against American companies that do business with Israel,” AIPAC said in a statement.
The UNHRC is infamously biased against Israel, with nearly half of its resolutions focused solely on the Jewish state, while completely ignoring war, strife and atrocities committed around the world.
Israeli leaders and officials have cited the UNHRC for its “obsessive hostility” toward Israel and its “one-sided mandate.”
Over the past 10 years, the UNHRC has passed 62 resolutions condemning Israel. Meanwhile, the world’s worst human rights abusers in Syria, Iran, and North Korea received far fewer condemnations.

Israel concerned over Iran’s growing involvement in Lebanon; US says information received shows Assad is developing new chemical weapons.
By: Margot Dudkevitch, World Israel News
The Israeli security cabinet will convene a special meeting next Tuesday to discuss the growing involvement of Iran in Lebanon, Channel One reported Thursday night. According to the report, the meeting comes amid Iran’s efforts to strengthen its grip on Lebanon and build a precision missile factory inside the country. Chief of Staff Lt, Gen. Gadi Eisenkot is due to brief the weekly cabinet meeting on Sunday, when he will deliver his annual assessment of the situation along Israel’s borders, including the situation in Lebanon and Syria.
Footage obtained by Channel One showed Lebanese civilians in recent weeks attempting to provoke IDF soldiers deployed along the border, calling the soldiers names and making rude gestures. Earlier this week, IDF Spokesman Brig. Gen. Ronen Manelis published an Arabic language opinion piece warning Lebanese civilians of the dangers of allowing Iran to operate inside the country and specifically of Iran’s plan to build a missile factory there with its proxy, the Hezbollah terrorist group.
The Israeli army estimates Hezbollah has replenished its weapons stocks since the Second Lebanon War in 2006, and is currently estimated to have some 100,000 short-range rockets and missiles. Hezbollah has also extended its tunnel systems near Israel’s border and is able to mobilize close to 30,000 fighters.
Meanwhile, reports quoting unnamed US State Department officials on Thursday night say intelligence information shows President Bashar Assad is developing new kinds of chemical weapons which he plans to use. This despite a 2013 deal in which Syria vowed to destroy its chemical weapons program.
The officials said they believe the regime is developing these weapons in order to improve its military capability. One official quoted in the foreign media said US President Donald Trump’s administration is prepared to take military action to deter the use of such weapons but also called on the international arena to take action before it is too late.

https://worldisraelnews.com/haim-gouri-legendary-israeli-fighter-poet-dies-94/?Haim Gouri, poet, warrior and founding father of the State of Israel, has died. He was 94.
By: TPS and World Israel News Staff
Haim Gouri, one of Israel’s definitive poets, authors, filmmakers and journalists died Wednesday. He was 94.
Gouri was one of the first major Hebrew-language authors of the modern Israeli period. After fighting in the pre-state Hagana militia and the IDF’s legendary Palmach unit during the War of Independence, he emerged as a leading voice of Israel’s founding generation.
In all, Gouri published 12 books of poetry, 10 books of prose and many newspaper and magazine articles. He is perhaps best known for his coverage of the trial of Nazi criminal Adolf Eichmann, which he published in the book Facing the Glass Booth: The Jerusalem Trial of Adolf Eichmann.
Gouri fiercely defended his connection to Zionism and expressed his concerns for the State of Israel.
In 1988 he was awarded the Israel Prize for Poetry.
Noting that Gouri died on Tu B’Shevat, the Hebrew calendar’s equivalent to Arbor Day, Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein said he would name a section for tree planting in the Knesset Archaeological Garden after the late author.
Culture Minister Miri Regev eulogized Gouri as a “giant” of Israel’s founding generation who helped herald and document the rebirth of the Jewish people in the Land of Israel.
Making reference to one of Gouri’s best-known works, Regev said “Gouri will forever remain a ‘flower of fire’ of our national rebirth in the State of Israel. May his memory be a blessing.”
Education Minister Naftali Bennett added that Gouri symbolized a spirit of “we, not just me.”
“His poems will continue to send a shudder through the hearts of Israeli youth,” Bennett added.




Las Vegas massacre: court error unmasks person of interest

Did mass murderer Stephen Paddock have assistance carrying out his shooting?
By: AP
A court error publicly revealed the name of a man identified as a person of interest in the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.
Clark County District Court Judge Elissa Cadish acknowledged that a member of her court staff failed to black out the man’s name on one of 276 pages of documents released to news organizations including The Associated Press and Las Vegas Review-Journal.
After the error was recognized, lawyers for the news organizations were told to return the documents. The attorney representing AP and other media did so, but the other lawyer had already transmitted the documents and the Review-Journal published Douglas Haig’s name online.
Cadish later ordered the document not be published without redactions, but she acknowledged she couldn’t order the newspaper to retract the name.
“The reality is, now that it is online, there is nothing I can do,” Cadish said.
The unsealed search warrants in the investigation of the Oct. 1 shooting that killed 58 people revealed Haig as a person of interest authorities spoke to after the shooting. Haig told AP he sold ammo to shooter Stephen Paddock and that he had been contacted earlier by investigators in the case.
A spokeswoman for the FBI in Las Vegas declined to comment and referred calls to the US attorney in Nevada. A spokeswoman for the federal prosecutor’s did not immediately respond to messages.
A question of journalistic ethics
Reporters at the AP never received the document with Haig’s name, but the news organization used the name based on the Review-Journal‘s reporting citing police documents.
Brian Barrett, AP‘s assistant general counsel, said the news organization might have viewed it differently if reporters received the documents before the court asked them to be returned.
“Once truthful information is in the hands of journalists there are strong First Amendment protections that apply and would allow them to publish,” Barrett said.
Michael Parks, journalism professor at the University of Southern California, said if he were in his former position as editor of the Los Angeles Times, he might ask about the origin of documents but wouldn’t engage in pre-publication censorship if the source was legitimate.
“You can’t unring the bell. … It was a mistake, but it’s out,” Parks said. “Journalists are not in the business of suppressing news. … We publish it.”

Police are investigating a car-ramming incident in Philadelphia as an apparent terror attack.
By: World Israel News Staff and AP
Philadelphia police are investigating an incident of a man who on Monday tried to run down pedestrians and was shot dead by a policeman as a possible act of terrorism.
Philadelphia’s police commissioner said there are unanswered questions about the fatal shooting by an off-duty officer of a driver who apparently tried to run someone down.
Commissioner Richard Ross said surveillance video shows “a violent struggle” between the officer and the driver who apparently tried to hit a person who had just gotten out of a car in south Philadelphia and then apparently aimed for others before being stopped.
The man then chased another driver, charged at the officer who fired a warning shot in the air and then at the assailant. He died at a hospital.
Ross said he has questions about some of the shots fired.
The person struck was taken to a hospital with injuries not believed to be life-threatening.
A police spokesman confirmed that terror was being considered as motivation, the UK’s Daily Express reported.
“Anytime someone is trying to run people over we got to look at that angle and see what the investigation leads us,” he said.
“Police were alerted … to a reckless driver driving southbound on Broad Street towards Bigler. This driver was apparently attempting to run people over,” he added.

Netanyahu and Morawiecki agreed that teams from the two countries would try to reach understandings regarding a Polish law that bans phrases such as “Polish death camps.”
By: World Israel News Staff
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday spoke by telephone with Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki in wake of the bill recently passed by the Polish parliament that prohibits any references to Polish involvement in the Holocaust. The move angered Israelis across the political spectrum and elicited much criticism from groups around the world.
The two leaders agreed that teams from both countries would open an immediate dialogue in order to try and reach understandings regarding the legislation.
The bill, passed by the lower house of the Polish parliament on Friday, specifies prison time for those who ‘defame’ Poland by using phrases such as “Polish death camps” when referring to Auschwitz and other Nazi-run death camps located in Poland during World War II.
The bill still needs approval from Poland’s Senate and President Andrzej Duda before becoming law.

All Israeli students in state-run schools, Grades 7-12, will get two extra hours of history instruction this week that will concentrate on the part played by Nazi-conquered European nations in the German attempt to liquidate the Jewish people during World War II. The purpose of the lesson is educate the students about how the collaboration between ordinary people and officials when it came to anti-Jewish policies and the Nazis who had taken over their countries.
Naftali Bennett, Minister of Education, made it clear that the timing was not accidental. Although Holocaust Remembrance Day is marked in Israel on the 27th day of the Hebrew month of Nisan (which usually falls in April), along with extensive educational programming, International Holocaust Day was on Saturday.

Some of the terrorists freed in exchange for Gilad Shalit not only control the Gaza Strip, but are planning attacks and kidnappings with Iran’s help.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
A senior security official’s assessment reveals that some 420 of the 1,027 terrorists exchanged for kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Shalit in 2011 have revived their terrorist activity over the last six years, Israel Hayom reported. Hundreds of rock throwings, stabbings, Molotov cocktail attacks, car rammings and shootings – as well as attacks that were planned but stopped in their tracks due to Israel’s intelligence work – can be directly or indirectly traced back to these terrorists.
Some of the released terrorists have become high-ranking Hamas officials, with the most senior of them being Yahya Sinwar, who is now the terror group’s prime minister in Gaza, having taken over from Ismail Haniyeh a year ago. Sinwar is considered a ruthless hardliner who spent 22 years in Israeli prisons. Even behind bars he was involved in plotting the kidnapping and murder of IDF soldier Nahshon Waxman in 1994. Sinwar was put on the US terrorism blacklist in 2015.

A drug trafficker attempting to smuggle drugs from Egypt past Israel’s southern border was killed in a shootout between the smugglers and Israeli police forces.
A special police unit was operating to counter some 30 drug smugglers on Sunday night who were passing drugs over the border fence. During the operation, the police came under fire from Egyptian smugglers on the other side of the border.
A gunfight then ensued between the smugglers and the police, and one of the smugglers, who was probably situated between the two sides at the time of the shooting, was killed.
Egyptian police forces also shot at the smugglers.

Described as the greatest lost treasure in US history, a treasure recovered from the 1857 wreckage of the S.S. Central America, is going on sale.
By: AP
More than $50 million worth of gold bars, coins and dust that’s been described as the greatest lost treasure in US history is about to make its public debut in California after sitting at the bottom of the ocean for more than 150 years.
The 3,100 gold coins, 45 gold bars and more than 80 pounds (36 kilograms) of gold dust recovered from the wreckage of the S.S. Central America steamship are now sitting in a makeshift laboratory just south of Los Angeles.
Bob Evans, the chief scientist on the original voyage that discovered the shipwreck and its treasure in 1988, is now painstakingly cleaning each piece of gold by hand, soaking it in a solution and brushing off rust and grime that accumulated as the treasure sat 7,000 feet (2,134 meters) below sea level.
“This is a whole new season of discovery,” Evans told The Associated Press this week from the laboratory in Santa Ana. “We are now peering beneath the grime and the rust that is on the coins, removing those objects and those substances and getting to look at the treasure as it was in 1857.”
The Central America was laden with booty from the California Gold Rush when it sank in a hurricane off the coast of South Carolina in 1857. Four hundred and twenty-five people drowned and thousands of pounds of California gold were lost, contributing to an economic panic.

By Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
Palestinian Authority (PA) leader Mahmoud Abbas reportedly told left-wing Meretz party chief Zehava Galon over the weekend that “the Oslo Accords are dead.”
According to Galon, Abbas’ comment came during a phone call to express condolences on the death of the Meretz leader’s father. She said that Abbas told her that US President Donald Trump had, in several past conversations, “promised a good deal to [resolve] the conflict, and then came this unfortunate surprise” recognizing Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, which we cannot accept.”
In the weeks following the Trump announcement, the Palestinians declared a freezing of ties with Washington and said they would not accept the Trump administration as a peace broker.

By: World Israel News Staff, with files from Palestinian Media Watch
The CPalestinian Authority continues to bestow plaques upon various honorees that depict Palestinian territory as comprising all of Israel, a phenomenon recently documented by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW).
Among the recent examples of this practice are the PA National Security Forces and PA Ministry of Education distributing honorary plaques with a PA map that eliminates the existence of the Jewish State. District Governor of Ramallah and El-Bireh Laila Ghannam received a plaque like this in mid-January depicting the PA’s Israel-free version of Palestinian borders.
Similarly, at a ceremony honoring students in Shechem (Nablus), PA Minister of Education and Higher Education Dr. Sabri Saidam posed with an honorary plaque featuring the PA map of Palestine.
This practice is consistent with statements by PA officials describing “Palestinian land” as covering the area “between the [Jordan] River and the [Mediterranean] Sea.”
By way of recent example, Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Revolutionary Council, Majed Al-Fatiani, told PA TV in January, “It is not enough that only the residents of Jerusalem stand against [the occupation] in its streets, alleys, and neighborhoods… . This act needs to spread over all of the Palestinian land between the [Jordan] River and the [Mediterranean] Sea. Our identity is between the river and the sea. Our national popular sovereignty is between the river and the sea,” reported PMW.

By Margot Dudkevitch, World Israel News
After being alerted of a possible infiltration into the Israeli community of Itamar in Samaria, IDF soldiers arrested a Palestinian wearing military fatigues Sunday evening.
A military surveillance post spotted two Palestinians heading towards a back entrance to the community and raised the alarm. Soldiers deployed to the site began searching for the suspects and called on residents to remain inside their homes as a precaution.
One of the suspects was caught by soldiers unarmed and carrying binoculars. Security forces are searching for the second suspect, who is believed to have fled towards Beit Furik, a nearby Palestinian town. An IDF spokesman said that according to initial findings, neither one succeeded in entering the community.
The Itamar Emergency Committee put out a statement saying that the possibility that the two suspects are hunters, and not terrorists, cannot be ruled out.
Since the drive-by shooting and murder earlier this month of Rabbi Raziel Shevach, 35, who was gunned down while driving to his home at the Gilad Farm, IDF forces have maintained a heightened presence in Judea and Samaria.

The torrential rains in Israel over the weekend have caused damage around the country but have also exposed of a string of explosive charges on the road to the Palestinian city of Tul Karem.
Israel’s Ynet news reported Saturday that the Palestinian security service found the explosives on a road connecting the Palestinian villages of Attil and Illar in Area A, which is under full Palestinian Authority (PA) control.
The road is used by the Palestinians, and occasionally by the IDF. Israeli civilians are prohibited from entering Area A.
A Palestinian force arrived at the scene and uncovered 12 improvised explosive devices (IED). Each barrel bomb was 40 cm in length and 30 cm in diameter and weighed 20-30 kg, a powerful explosive charge.
The Palestinians dismantled the bombs and have launched an investigation to discover who planted the bombs.
It is unclear when the bombs were planted or for whom they were meant. A source told Ynet that findings at the scene indicated the explosives were planted a long time ago.

By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
In an interview with London-based newspaper Al Quds Al Arabi published Saturday and translated by Palestinian Media Watch, Fatah Deputy Chairman Mahmoud al-Aloul declared that “the entire Palestinian leadership” is of the opinion that American administrations – all of them — “have not given the Palestinians anything of substance but rather worked in order to pull the rug out from under their feet by exerting pressures on them, and that with all their might they support [the Palestinians’] enemy.”
Al-Aloul also discounted any future relationship with the US, saying, “We assessed that nothing good will come from them for the Palestinian people and the nation, and this is completely clear.”
According to the website of the US Consulate General in Jerusalem, the Americans have provided the Palestinian Authority (PA) with over $5.2 billion through USAID since 1994 – the year Israel and the PA signed the Oslo Accords. Among other things, this money pays for infrastructure development, support for debt relief, governance, sanitation, education and essential humanitarian assistance to the Gaza Strip.
Education and humanitarian assistance are the two main areas in which the US helps the Palestinians through their annual contributions to the United Nations Relief Works Agency (UNRWA), which assists Palestinian refugees in Arab countries and their descendants, as well as Palestinians in Judea, Samaria and Gaza.
America has been the organization’s largest donor by far, giving approximately $1.5 billion in the last four years alone, although President Trump recently declared a moratorium on America’s largesse until major changes are made in UNRWA policies.

“We are releasing this classified information because it is vital for the world to understand that if we turn a blind eye in Syria, the Iranian threat will only grow,” Danon told the Council.
“Today, there are 82,000 fighters under Iran’s authority in Syria. This includes 3,000 members of Iran’s infamous Revolutionary Guard, 9,000 fighters from Iran’s proxy Hezbollah and 10,000 members of violent Shia militias recruited from across the Middle East including Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Trump: Palestinians must talk peace to receive aid, ‘money is on the table’

Trump: Palestinians must talk peace to receive aid, ‘money is on the table’PM Benjamin Netanyahu (L) and US President Donald Trump meet on the sidelines of the World Economic Conference in Switzerland, Jan. 25, 2018. (Amos Ben-Gershom/GPO)
The US, Trump said, gives “hundreds of millions of dollars” to the Palestinians, and “that money is on the table and that money’s not going to them unless they sit down and negotiate peace.”
By: AP and World Israel News Staff
US President Donald Trump threatened Thursday to withhold aid money from the Palestinians until they return to peace talks with Israel as he sat down with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital last month infuriated the Palestinian leadership, which consequently refused to meet with Vice President Mike Pence during his visit to the Middle East this week. They also declared a new US-led peace push dead, saying Washington can no longer be trusted as an honest broker.
Trump said that decision has consequences. The US, he said, gives “hundreds of millions of dollars” to the Palestinians, and “that money is on the table and that money’s not going to them unless they sit down and negotiate peace.”

Sitting beside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, President Donald Trump made it clear on Thursday that the US will withhold aid money from the Palestinians until they return to peace talks with Israel.
The US, he said, gives “hundreds of millions of dollars” to the Palestinians, and “that money is on the table and that money’s not going to them unless they sit down and negotiate peace.”
According to David Bedein of the Center for Near East Policy Research, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees (UNWRA), for example, has received advances from Belgium and other countries to make up for funds withheld by the US.

Jordan’s King Abdullah says Jerusalem must be part of a comprehensive peace plan, noting that US involvement in Israeli-Palestinian negotiations is key.
By Margot Dudkevitch, World Israel News
The final status of Jerusalem must be a part of a comprehensive peace plan between Israel and the Palestinians, Jordan’s King Abdullah II told the World Economic Forum in Davos on Thursday.
Jerusalem “could be a city that brings us together or it could create aggression and violence that we haven’t seen before. Jerusalem is an emotional subject for everybody,” Arabnews.com quoted him saying.
The king said he would reserve judgment until he sees the Trump Administration’s new peace plan aimed at reigniting peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians. The challenge is that the Americans must “give something good to the Palestinians,” he stated, adding that there can be no serious negotiations without US involvement.

While slamming the US decision to cut aid to the Palestinians, the PA has purchased a private jet for Abbas.
By: Margot Dudkevitch, World Israel News
The Palestinian Authority (PA) announced it has purchased a $50 million private jet for its leader, Mahmoud Abbas. The move comes as Palestinians are asking Europe and other countries for financial assistance in the wake of the US decision to slash funds to the PA.
According to reports in the Palestinian media, the jet is due to arrive within a few weeks in Amman, Jordan.
Explaining the purchase, Palestinian officials said that $30 million came from the Palestinian National Fund, and the rest from the PA’s annual budget.
Due to the complete deterioration of the PA-US relationship over the past several weeks, officials in the White House said the US is seriously re-examining its policy concerning financial aid to the Palestinians, but hinted that if Abbas returns to the negotiating table, that could change.

White House: No contact with Palestinians since Jerusalem declarationPalestinian Authority head Mahmoud Abbas and US President Donald Trump (Fadi Arouri, Xinhua Pool via AP)
The Palestinians have severed all ties with the White House, which is attempting to jump-start the peace process. 
By: JNS.org and World Israel News Staff
The US has had no direct contact with the Palestinian leadership since President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital last month, a White House official said.
The official said on Tuesday that there has been no contact between Trump’s Middle East negotiating team, which includes his son-in-law Jared Kushner and international negotiations envoy Jason Greenblatt, since the December announcement of US policy changes on Jerusalem.
“[It is] unfortunate that the president has so many times reached out to explain how dedicated he is to helping the Palestinian people,” the official told reporters, adding that a “disconnect” has caused Palestinian leaders to view the US as not committed to fair negotiations.
“We are here, dedicated and ready to engage whenever they are. We’ll be here when they’re ready,” the official said.
While White House officials have been engaged in talks with high-level Palestinian officials, there are no plans for a meeting between Trump and Palestinian Authority (PA) head Mahmoud Abbas.
“One of the tragic things I have noticed since December 6 is there are so many Palestinians who are reaching out…both in the West Bank and Gaza,” the official said. “They’re under a lot of pressure not to talk.”
Peace depends on the Palestinians
Before ending his visit to Israel, Vice President Mike Pence said that reigniting the peace process depends on the Palestinians.

Netanyahu and Putin to sit down in Moscow next week to discuss Syria and Iran.
By: Margot Dudkevitch
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin on January 29 in Moscow, simultaneous statements released by the Prime Minister’s Office and the Kremlin said Thursday. The two last met in Sochi in August last year but maintain constant phone contact. Jerusalem Affairs and Environmental Protection Minister Ze’ev Elkin will accompany the prime minister to the Russian capital.
The whirlwind visit is expected to last some five hours. Agenda topics are set to include the Iranian nuclear deal and Israel’s opposition to allowing Iranian military forces to maintain a presence in Syria. Jerusalem is determined not to allow Iranian forces to remain in Syria once the civil war ends there.
The two leaders, who are currently attending the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, met in Moscow last March. At the time, Netanyahu attempted to tie the then-upcoming Jewish holiday of Purim to tensions concerning Iran. However, Putin quickly reminded the Israeli premier of the necessity to focus on the present and not the past.
Netanyahu has continuously sought international support for his stand on the Iranian nuclear deal struck with the West, which he believes should be nixed. Yet Putin has constantly sought to maintain close ties with Tehran, including selling the Islamic Republic the latest advanced S300 anti-aircraft system – despite Israel’s objections.

Jerusalem court sentences rock-throwers who killed Israeli driver

Jerusalem court sentences rock-throwers who killed Israeli driverArab rock throwing terrorists (Issam RImawi/Flash 90)
A Jerusalem court sentenced Israeli-Arab rock throwers who caused the death of a Jewish driver, emphasizing the risk posed by such attacks.  
By Margot Dudkevitch, World Israel News
The Jerusalem District Court on Thursday sentenced three Israeli Arabs to prison terms ranging from three to 15 years for the 2015 death of Alexander Levlovich.
Levlovich, 64, was returning to his Jerusalem home on the eve of Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year, when his car was struck by rocks, causing him to lose control and crash. He died in hospital shortly after the attack. Two other passengers were lightly injured.
Security forces arrested five Israeli Arabs involved in the rock-throwing, two of them minors. All are from the eastern Jerusalem neighborhood of Sur Baher.
Last September, the ringleader, identified as Mahmoud Abed Dwayatt, received an 18-year prison sentence as part of a plea bargain, and one of the minors was sentenced to nine years in jail.
On Thursday, the court gave Mohammed Abu Kaf a 15-year sentence; Walid Firas al-Atrash, 13.5 years; and a minor, three years.
Explaining his reasons for the sentencing, Judge Raphael Carmel said he sought to emphasize the risk posed by throwing rocks and that the punishment meted out should serve not only as a deterrence to the perpetrators, but also to others considering carrying out similar attacks.

A Polish neo-Nazi group celebrated Hitler’s birthday. They are now facing criminal charges and possibly prison.
By: AP and World Israel News Staff
Polish authorities have arrested and charged three people with propagating fascism after a news program revealed details about a neo-Nazi group in Poland that celebrated Adolf Hitler in a ceremony last year, prosecutors said Tuesday.
Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said Tuesday that the state would not tolerate any use of totalitarian symbols and he wants to see the neo-Nazi group outlawed.
The private news channel TVN24 broadcast an expose Saturday about “Pride and Modernity,” a neo-Nazi group whose members dressed in Nazi uniforms and praised Hitler last spring on what would have been the German dictator’s 128th birthday.
Poland was invaded and occupied by Nazi Germany during World War II, and the existence of the pro-Hitler group has sparked shock and revulsion. About six million Polish citizens were killed in that war, while Polish cities were razed and the country’s cultural heritage looted.
“In Poland we cannot have the slightest tolerance of Nazi, fascist or communist symbols,” Morawiecki said at a news conference in Warsaw. “The use of them is against the law and against all of our values.”
He also thanked the journalists who went undercover to document the activities of the neo-Nazi group, whose members chanted the “Sieg Heil” Nazi salute and praised Hitler at an altar in a wooded area at night as a swastika burned.

Ahead of Mike Pence’s arrival in Israel, Ayman Odeh, chairman of the Arab Joint List, affirmed that his party will boycott the US vice-president’s Knesset speech.
Last month, when President Donald Trump declared US recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, Odeh said the announcement will destroy any chance of peace.
“Trump is a pyromaniac who could set the entire region on fire with his madness,” Odeh stated at the time. “The last few days prove decisively that the United States cannot remain the sponsor or arbitrator in negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians,” he said, mirroring the statements made by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, who has since declared the Oslo Accords null and void.

The destruction of a massive Hamas tunnel under the Gaza border Saturday night has clearly demonstrated that Israel now has the technology to find tunnels, and together with the physical barrier being constructed, the entire Hamas tunnel enterprise may soon be out of business.
The tunnel, discovered near the Kerem Shalom crossing, where Egypt, Israel and Gaza meet, is the fourth one discovered since October.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu developed a close bond with 11-year-old Moshe Holtzberg, whose parents were killed in an Islamic terror attack at the Chabad House in Mumbai, India, in November 2018, when he was just two. He was rescued by his nanny, Sandra Samuel, and now lives in Israel with his grandparents. Samuel was also granted Israeli citizenship.
Netanyahu is on a historic trip to India, and as he had promised Moshe, he brought him along. At the Nariman (Chabad) House, where the murder took place, they unveiled plans for a state-of-the-art Living Memorial to commemorate the close-to-170 victims of terror throughout a series of attacks.
In this video, speaking Hebrew, Moshe presented Netanyahu with a memorial photo and invited him to attend his Bar Mitzvah.

Vice President Mike Pence arrived in Cairo hours after the US Congress and President Donald Trump failed to reach agreement on a plan to avert a partial federal closure. Pence went ahead with his four-day trip to the Middle East, citing national security and diplomatic reasons.
Pence’s meeting with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi was expected to delve into security cooperation between the two countries and efforts to fight ISIS.
His visit to the region comes more than a month after Trump announced his decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, a step that has enraged Palestinians.
Pence planned to travel to Jordan later Saturday and then to Israel on Sunday. He will not be meeting with Palestinians officials.
El-Sissi has built a strategic alliance with Trump and urged the American president to become more involved in the fight against Islamic terrorism in the Middle East. Trump has praised el-Sissi for the April release of Egyptian-American charity worker Aya Hijazi, who had been detained for nearly three years.

The lawsuit was submitted by the Belgian Federation of Jewish Organizations (CCOJB), the Belgian section of the European Jewish Congress (EJC) and the World Jewish Congress (WJC), and follows a case submitted last November against similar legislation passed by the parliament of the Walloon region.
The lawsuit is backed by the Lawfare Project, a legal think tank and civil rights litigation fund, which files legal cases against anti-Semitic discrimination around the world.
The legislation bans the slaughter of unstunned animals, which is a requirement for both kosher and Muslim halal slaughter.

Air India is reportedly considering direct flights to Israel, flying via Saudi Arabia and reducing flight time.
By: Margot Dudkevitch, World Israel News
With all eyes on India, where Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu seeks to boost ties between the two countries during his state visit there, talks are underway to secure a deal that will see Air India resume direct flights from Israel, and fly over Saudi Arabia.
If the Saudis agree, the duration of the flight will be cut by almost two hours, slashing costs on fuel and seeing a significant increase in the number of tourists that fly between the two countries. The new route would also allow the airline to reduce the price of flight tickets.
The change will also symbolize another step in the direction of normalizing ties between Israel and the Sunni Kingdom. If the Saudis approves the move, it will likely be presented to the Indian government as a gesture and not directly to Israel who has no formal diplomatic ties with Riyadh, Ynet said.
Currently, Israel’s national carrier El Al has direct flights from Tel Aviv to Mumbai but is forced to use a longer route that adds to the flight duration. Two decades ago Air India announced it was suspending direct flights from Israel due to spiraling fuel costs and lack of profitability.

Not only did he have to prepare for the visit of US Vice President Mike Pence, but he also had to manage an apparent full- blown coalition crisis with Interior Minister Aryeh Deri and Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman slugging it out in a verbal brawl over the mini-market law.
Political Scientist Prof. Avrum Diskin of the Hebrew University told World Israel News (WIN), “Early elections are not in the interest of any of the coalition parties. Liberman clearly needed to appease his voters, but if we listen carefully to his words, he is more extreme than usual in his pronouncements, and it’s the kind of language that could ignite a real crisis. Liberman has made mistakes in the past and this could be another. But I believe he is just trying to make a statement to his base by saying his Yisrael Beiteinu party is the real secular-right party, and not Netanyahu’s Likud, which allows the ultra-orthodox to get its way.”

Palestinian Authority (PA) head Mahmoud Abbas urged the European Union (EU) countries to recognize the ‘State of Palestine’ but failed to garner any substantial support.
In a joint press conference on Monday with EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini in Brussels, Abbas insisted that the only way to achieve peace between Israel and the Palestinians is through negotiations “under international supervision.” He stressed the importance of the EU’s political involvement in order to ensure that the issues discussed are “justly resolve[d].”
The EU is one of the “most important partners contributing in the establishment of the institutions of the Palestinian state” through economic and financial support, he said.

Throughout time, aggressors knew when they were winning and when they were losing. By contrast, Israel’s Muslim Arab enemies do not behave like your typical aggressors. The more Israel’s enemies lose, the more aggressive and demanding they become.
Japan’s hubris that led to the attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941 was depleted when America dropped the nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945. The difference between Pearl Harbor and Hiroshima was that the balance of power had shifted dramatically in America’s favor. The US was not popular in post-1945 Japan, but the defeated Japanese knew that they were in no position to demand anything from Washington.

US embassy move: Netanyahu says he’s on the same page as TrumpUS President Donald Trump (R) and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. (Flash 90)
‘The president and the prime minister are not saying anything different,’ an official in the PMO said regarding plans to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem.

By Margot Dudkevitch, World Israel News

US President Donald Trump rejected statements made by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in India that the US Embassy will be moved to Jerusalem by the end of the year.

“By the end of the year? We’re talking about different scenarios – I mean obviously that would be on a temporary basis. We’re not really looking at that. That’s no,” Trump told Reuters in an interview.

However, he did emphasize that plans to relocate the embassy to the Israeli capital are ongoing and “beautiful.”

Sources in the Prime Minister’s Office responded Thursday by claiming that Trump and Netanyahu are on the same page.
“The president and the prime minister are not saying anything different,” an official in the PMO said. He acknowledged that construction of a new embassy could take years, although Netanyahu believes the US is considering interim measures that would result in the opening of an embassy in Jerusalem much sooner, albeit on a temporary basis.

Israel apologizes to Jordan over shooting incident, reopens embassy in Amman

Following months of tension after a deadly shooting incident at the Israeli embassy in Jordan, the two countries have reached an agreement.

By: World Israel News Staff

Jordan and Israel reached an agreement on Thursday following a six-month diplomatic crisis triggered by the killing last summer of two Jordanians by an Israeli Embassy guard who had acted in self-defense.

After being stabbed in July by a 17-year-old terrorist of Palestinian origin, the wounded Israeli security guard at the embassy opened fire, killing the assailant. Another Jordanian who was present at the time of the attack was inadvertently hit by the gunfire and later died.

While Jordanian officials initially refused to let the guard return to Israel, he eventually came home, where he received a warm welcome from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The Jordanians demanded the security guard be tried, a request refused by Israel.
The incident occurred during intense negotiations between Israel and Jordan related to the violence and tension surrounding the Temple Mount, of which the Jordanian Islamic Trust is the official custodian. A week earlier, three Arab-Israeli terrorists shot and killed two Druze policemen guarding the holy site.
Israel responded by installing metal detectors at the site, a decision that was met with protests and violence by the Muslim world, including another terror attack that claimed the lives of three members of the Salomon family in Samaria by a 19-year-old Palestinian who broke into their home.
The Jordanian parliament had also praised the terrorists who carried out the deadly Temple Mount attack and criticized Israel for temporarily shutting the site down.
Netanyahu eventually removed the added security from the Temple Mount compound, which met overwhelming public disapproval in Israel.

In an interview with World Israel News, an expert on Palestinian Islamic terror groups praises Israel’s security forces for capturing those responsible for the murder of Raziel Shevach within a week, one of whom was a second-generation terrorist. 
By: Margot Dudkevitch, World Israel News
One of the interesting facts that emerged from Israel’s counter-terror operation in Jenin on Wednesday is that Ahmed Jarrar, the 22-year-old Hamas terrorist killed during the operation, was a second-generation terrorist, Dr. Dikla Cohen, fellow researcher at the Hebrew University’s Truman Institute, told World Israel News (WIN).
Jarrar’s father Nasser was a high ranking Hamas official and a member of its military wing, the Al-Qassam Brigades, as well as a known explosives expert who was killed by Israeli security forces 16 years ago during the Second Intifada and in essence paved the way for his son Ahmed.
Following the elimination of Jarrar, who was responsible for the murder of Rabbi Raziel Shevach, Hamas released a statement vowing that the Jenin cell is not the first and not the last. The resistance will not be prevented from standing up to Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital and from protecting Al-Quds, Hamas stated.
According to Cohen, the terrorist organization’s “historical” response not only refers to US President Donald Trump’s Jerusalem declaration, but also ties in with Hamas leader Ismail Haniyah, who – in a speech made a day after the American president’s announcement – called to create a Third Intifada. “In his speech, Haniyah noted that it was 30 years since the First Intifada, and he called to re-ignite that spark,” Cohen said.

US Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt returned to Israel only days after the Palestinian leader cursed President Trump and rejected any role for the US in the peace process.
By: Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
US President Donald Trump’s Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt arrived in Israel on Wednesday, only three days after the Mahmoud Abbas’ meltdown speech in which the Palestinian leader ruled out Washington’s role in the peace process “as long as Trump is in the White House.” Abbas also uttered an Arabic curse at Trump, roughly translated as “May your house be demolished.”
Greenblatt is due to meet with envoys from the Middle East Quartet comprised of the US, European Union, United Nations and Russia. The White House says that Greenblatt “will be attending a regular meeting of the Quartet envoys to exchange information and continue our engagement on advancing peace.” But with Abbas seemingly pulling away from the peace process, Israel and Washington are both trying to determine what the next Palestinian move will be, and whether there is a way to move forward.
Abbas was reportedly furious after being given a preliminary account of Trump’s peace plan given to him by the Saudis. Written by Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, the plan reportedly envisions a Palestinian entity that is less than a state, with borders that are not based on the pre-1967 lines. Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria will remain in place and Israel will continue to control thE Jordan Valley, with the final status of Jerusalem to be an issue for negotiations.

Iranian leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei again demanded the destruction of “the Zionist entity,” addressing a meeting of representatives from Muslim-majority countries in Tehran on Tuesday. He also reiterated his usual condemnation of the United States as a supporter of the Jewish state. However, this time the supreme leader added an Arab country to his list of denunciations: Saudi Arabia, accusing it of nothing less than treason against the entire Muslim world.
“Governments that help the United States and cooperate with the Zionist regime to fight Muslim brothers are committing treason, like what the Saudis are doing,” he said.
The impetus for these remarks include recent reports of growing ties between Israel and the Saudi kingdom. Although the Saudis have consistently denied having any relations with Israel, there have been signs of rapprochement between the countries.

By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
Palestinian terrorists targeted Israeli worshipers who entered the city of Shechem (Nablus) on Monday, placing an explosive device in their route of travel, which was discovered by IDF forces and dismantled.
Around 1,000 Israeli worshipers were en route to pray at Joseph’s Tomb inside the Samarian city when IDF forces exposed an improvised explosive device that was placed outside the Tomb’s site.
The forces detonated the IED in a safe fashion
Shortly after, a Palestinian mob converged on the religious site and began rioting and throwing rocks. The IDF responded with crowd dispersal measures, while arresting one rioter.
The IDF organizes an over-night visit to the holy site once a month. The area is under Palestinian control, and entry to the area without IDF security is considered dangerous.
Earlier in the evening, IDF soldiers apprehended a Palestinian who opened fire using a self-manufactured weapon at a route near the village of Nabi Elias, north of the Israeli community of Alfei Menashe. The weapon and ammunition were found on the suspect, who was taken for further questioning.
In related news, IDF forces carried out counter-terrorism operations throughout Judea and Samaria, during which they arrested 11 Palestinians wanted in connection with terrorism

By: Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
The United States has for the first time officially acknowledged that there are American combat troops on the ground in Syria and says they will remain in place for the foreseeable future. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson made the announcement on Wednesday declaring that the troops are deployed to fight the Islamic State (ISIS) and to counter the Assad regime. Speaking at Stanford University, Tillerson also said the deployment is open-ended and intended to help create greater stability in country’s Kurdish-controlled region.
In point of fact, US advisors have been training moderate rebel forces in Syria in small numbers for several years. The Trump administration has now publicly declared that there are now some 2,000 combat troops on the ground. Tillerson said, “A total withdrawal of American personnel at this time would help Assad to continue his brutal treatment against his own people. A murderer of his own people cannot generate the trust required for long-term stability.”

Some 82 American Jewish activists were arrested while protesting on Capitol Hill Wednesday over President Donald Trump’s plan to end a program that protects hundreds of thousands of undocumented migrants (known as ‘Dreamers’) who came to the United States as children. US Capitol Police director Eva Malecki told the Huffington Post that the protesters were charged for “crowding and obstructing” in a public building.
Activists and rabbis from liberal Jewish groups such as the Religious Action Center for Reform Judaism, the Anti-Defamation League and Bend the Arc Jewish Action were among the protesters, some wearing prayer shawls. They gathered in the center of the Russell Senate Office Building, chanting “Let my people stay.”
Members of Congress Ted Deutch and disgraced former DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman, Democrats from Florida, were among the demonstrators.
The protesters demanded that Congress take action to prevent the deportation of tens of thousands of people. At one point, they sat on the floor, refusing to move.

Should BDS be allowed to pay for trips taken by Israeli lawmakers?  
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
The Knesset’s House Committee on Wednesday held another meeting on the proposal to add to the Rules of Ethics for Members of the Knesset a clause which would ban lawmakers from going on trips abroad that are financed by organizations which delegitimize Israel and call for boycotts of it.
During a meeting in May 2017, House Committee Chairman Member of Knesset Yoav Kisch requested that the clause include a ban on MKs’ trips abroad which are funded by organizations that reject Israel’s existence as a Jewish and democratic state, incite  racism, support armed conflict by a terrorist organization or enemy country against Israel, call to boycott Israel or regions of Israel, Israeli products, academia or culture, or that seek to put Israelis on trial for war crimes or deny the Holocaust.
During Wednesday’s meeting, a new version of the proposal was presented, based on a list recently published by the Ministry of Strategic Affairs which includes some 20 boycott organizations whose members are not permitted to enter Israel, in accordance with an amendment to the Entry into Israel Law.
According to Kisch, this list solves the problem presented during the last meeting by the Knesset Ethics Committee, which argued at the time that it does not have the tools to determine which organizations are legitimate and which are not.

By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
The British Chelsea Football Club (CFC) is launching a new educational campaign aimed at raising awareness of the persistent phenomenon of anti-Semitism in sports, prevalent among its fans.
The World Jewish Congress (WJC) is partnering with Chelsea in developing and promoting the long-term campaign, which was announced on Tuesday under the leadership of club owner Roman Abramovich. The campaign will be launched officially on 31 January at the Premier League game against Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge Stadium.
In a statement, CFC said that “everybody at Chelsea is proud to be part of a diverse club. Our players, staff, fans and visitors to the club come from a wide range of backgrounds, including the Jewish community, and we want to ensure everyone feels safe, valued and included.”
The project will include primary school education on Jewish faith and culture and an incentivized education program for fans previously banned for their anti-Semitic behavior. Educational activities are expected to take place over the course of the year include meetings with Holocaust survivors and educational trips for staff and fans.

‘We don’t care about anti-Semitism in this office,’ Senate aide allegedly saysPolicy adviser to Sen. Patty Murray (pictured) allegedly says, "We don't care about Jews." (Wikimedia Commons)
 
“We care about transgenders, we care about blacks, we care about Hispanics, we care about gays, we care about lesbians, we care about the disabled. We don’t care about anti-Semitism in this office,” Jake Cornett, a senior policy adviser, reportedly said.

A U.S. Senate staffer allegedly suggested that anti-Semitism is of lesser concern than discrimination against other minority groups, stating twice that “we don’t care about anti-Semitism in this office,” JNS has learned. The revelation has sparked concern among groups that work to raise American lawmakers’ awareness about anti-Semitism.

The remarks were purportedly made in a conversation that took place between Sarah Stern, the president of the pro-Israel group Endowment for Middle East Truth (EMET), and Jake Cornett, a senior policy adviser to U.S. Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), the ranking Democrat on the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (known as HELP).

Stern’s organization has been urging senators to support the nomination of Kenneth L. Marcus as assistant secretary of education for civil rights. Marcus’s confirmation hearing took place last month, and a vote on the nomination will be held in the coming days.

In the meeting with Cornett, at Murray’s office on Nov. 28, 2017, Stern spoke of Marcus’s work against anti-Semitism as one of the reasons that senators should support the nomination.

According to notes of the meeting that were taken at the time by Stern’s associate, Jennifer Dekel, Cornett responded, “We don’t care about anti-Semitism in this office. We care about transgenders, we care about blacks, we care about Hispanics, we care about gays, we care about lesbians, we care about the disabled. We don’t care about anti-Semitism in this office.”

By: World Israel News Staff
The US will move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem much quicker than initially thought, possibly within the coming year, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Wednesday.
Israeli media reported that on a flight within India as part of his six-day state visit to the country, Netanyahu commented that the embassy move will occur “much sooner than you think,” likely within the year.
However, when asked about Netanyahu’s statement, Trump told Reuters that this will not happen. “By the end of the year? We’re talking about different scenarios – I mean obviously that would be on a temporary basis. We’re not really looking at that. That’s no.“
In December, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson stated that the move of the American Embassy to Jerusalem is “not going to be anything that happens right away … it’s probably no earlier than three years out.”

The incident began Wednesday after a group of over 40 Jewish visitors was allegedly provoked by Arab visitors and Wakf officials as they toured the Temple Mount. The Wakf, an “Islamic trust” overseeing the site, forbids members of any other faith except Islam from praying there.
In a video of the event shown by Israel National News, the group of Jews included men dressed in ultra-Orthodox garb alongside those with various kinds of knitted skullcaps, and some who wore no head covering at all. Arab men are seen screaming epithets, and hollering “Allahu Akbar” as the visitors pass.
In response, some of the Jewish men called out the first words of the “Shema Yisrael,” the Jewish declaration of faith in God, while others briefly sang a well-known tune asking God to rebuild the Temple. The group did not resist the police when the latter ushered them forcibly off the Mount.
The incident was not over for the group, however, as the authorities detained over 40 people at the Old City’s police station. Nati Rom of the Honenu organization, which helps Jews detained by the police for nationalist reasons, claimed the police responded improperly to what happened.

Abbas’ anti-US tirade included a direct challenge to the leader of the US, anouncing that Jerusalem is “the gate for peace and war and President Trump must choose between the two.”
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas again openly challenged the US and President Donald Trump, saying his decision to recognize contested Jerusalem as Israel’s capital was “sinful” and “ill-fated.”
In comments he made in a speech addressing the Al-Azhar International Conference in Support of Jerusalem in Cairo on Wednesday, Abbas claimed that the Palestinians are still seeking peace and will “use all the available options, but not violence or terrorism,” to achieve it.
While Abbas did not clarify what “available options” he was relating to, he has threatened to pursue Palestinian statehood through international forums and the International Criminal Court (ICC), while continuing efforts to gain full membership in the United Nations as well as continued efforts to join hundreds of conventions and agreements.
Such a move would consist of a blatant breach of the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords.

In a letter, the State Department notified the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) that the US is withholding $65 million of a planned $125 million funding installment to the body.

IDF Chief of Staff Brig. General Gadi Eisenkot says Tehran still intends to develop atomic weapons, despite the 2015 accord with world powers. Speaking to bereaved families of fallen soldiers, Eisenkot said Tuesday, “The Iranian threat is not theoretical. The intent and desire to reach nuclear capability exists, despite the deal.” Israeli experts closely monitoring the Iranian issue completely agree with Eisenkot.
Former Director General of the Israel Ministry of Strategic Affairs and head of the Research Division of IDF Military Intelligence Brig. General (Res.) Yossi Cooperwasser told World Israel News (WIN), “Eisenkot is 100 percent correct. Iran still strives to become a regional power and then world power and to do that they need nuclear weapons. They believe it’s a tool to impose its will in the Middle East.”

A top Israeli expert who often visits Syria says that the Kurds, with US backing, are now in control of 28% of the country.
By: Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
Dr. Jonathan Spyer, speaking to World Israel News, explained that the US policy of pushing back against Iranian incursion in Syria is beginning to show signs of success.
“The Kurds in Syria have created what is the most peaceful and well managed part of that war-torn country. Now in cooperation and partnership, the United States, the anti-Islamic State coalition, and the Kurds effectively rule just under 28% of Syria,” said Spyer in an exclusive interview with World Israel News (WIN). Spyer is the Israeli researcher and journalist who recently took part in a 10-day government sponsored tour of Syria that resulted in the firing of Syrian Minister of Information Mohammed Ramez Tourjman.
Spyer, who has made a number of visits to Kurdish controlled areas of Syria told WIN, “The Kurds now fully control Syria east of the Euphrates River. They do so with the full support and backing of the United States. This force defeated ISIS and based on what we are hearing now from Washington it looks like they are in the process of solidifying their alliance with the Americans.”
“Most important,” says Spyer, “is that the Americans are making clear that they plan on sticking around for the long term to solidify the Kurdish gains.” According to the Associated Press, the US is developing an expanded training program for Kurdish border guards in Syria. Spyer told WIN, “What we are witnessing is the first direct results from the stated US policy to push back against Iranian advances and the Assad regime. The US is also staying in Kurdish controlled Syria to prevent the reemergence of Islamic State in those areas.”

The United States has only just announced a cut in its funding for UNRWA, yet the UN agency is already predicting “catastrophic” consequences.
By: Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
While the United States has just announced its intention to cut $65 million in financial aid to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), the UN agency that funds “Palestinian refugees” has already begun a media campaign warning of the dire consequences if and when American assistance is cut back or halted. The agency has issued a statement saying that the loss of significant funding from its largest donor could be “catastrophic.”
The United States donated nearly $370 last year which is a third of its budget, and UNRWA spokesman Chris Gunness issued a statement saying, “The human impact of losing significant funding could be catastrophic in the real lives of real people whom the UN is mandated to protect.”
Don’t believe the hype?
David Bedein, a leading Israeli critic of UNRWA who has written extensively on the issue for the Center for Near East Policy Research said he is skeptical of “UNRWA hype.” Bedein told World Israel News (WIN), “If the US cuts funding others will quickly make up for it.”

The speaker of the Lebanese parliament Tuesday called to boycott US President Donald Trump for recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
By Margot Dudkevitch
In addition to calling for a boycott of US President Donald Trump based on his recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the speaker of the Lebanese parliament on Tuesday demanded that all embassies from Islamic countries who have their missions in Washington, move elsewhere. Speaking at the Parliamentary Union of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation Member States conference in Tehran, Nabih Berri said the steps must be taken against Trump’s administration “until he revokes his position regarding Jerusalem.”
Berri also called to halt all peace negotiations with Israel and for the annulment of the Oslo peace accords which formed the basis for the Israeli Palestinian peace track. He added that all Israeli embassies located in Arab and Muslim countries must be shut down, and that “peace negotiations be halted until a clear announcement is made by Israel to halt all settlement construction,” the Lebanese news site Naharnet quoted Berri saying.
His statements came just hours after Palestinian Liberation Organization’s Central Council in Ramallah voted in favor of demands to annul the Oslo agreements, end security cooperation with Israel and suspend ties with Israel until it recognizes the “state of Palestine.”
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, who voted in favor of suspending ties with Israel, called the American president’s peace efforts “the slap of the century.”
On December 6, 2017, President Trump announced Jerusalem must be recognized as the capital of the Jewish State, enraging the Arab world and many European countries.

“It’s a financial terror attack,” a senior police investigator said of the fraud case.
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
Israel’s police arrested an international crime ring that defrauded the state and stole almost NIS 1 billion ($285 M).
The police announced Wednesday that it has arrested 29 members of the crime ring, including three members in Spain and a senior bank official in Israel.
Another six individuals were detained for questioning.
The investigation into the serious fraud attempt lasted a year, the police said, and involved several branches of Israel’s tax authority and state prosecution.
The crimes involved money laundering, the distribution of fake receipts and tax evasion.
The fraud attempt caused severe damage to the state treasury, estimated at hundreds of millions of shekels, the police said.
Twenty of the suspects were brought before a court and were remanded on Wednesday. Other will face a judge on Thursday.
“Israel’s police will continue to investigate and expose illegal processes of severe financial crime which hinder Israel’s economy and harm its citizens,” the police stated.
One of the leading police investigators told IDF Radio that the suspects operated in a sophisticated way. “The damage to th

German authorities on Tuesday conducted searches countrywide in connection with 10 suspected Iranian spies.
A spokesman for the Federal Prosecutors Office says the suspects are believed to have “spied on institutions and persons in Germany on behalf of an entity associated with Iran.”
The spokesman, Stefan Biehl, told The Associated Press that the raids were prompted by a tip from Germany’s domestic intelligence service. He declined to comment on a report by weekly magazine Focus that the suspects were spying on Israelis in Germany.

Transportation minister announced plans to build two-billion-shekel train system to connect Israeli seaports with Jordan—and perhaps even beyond.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Yisrael Katz, Minister of Transportation, had Middle East peace on his mind when he announced Monday that NIS 15 million has been allocated in the 2019 budget to extend the Israeli railroad from Beit She’an to the Sheikh Hussein crossing at the border with Jordan.
The immediate result of such an extension would be the reduction of the number of trucks on the road, which carry a significant amount of cargo from Israel’s land-locked neighbor between the border and Israel’s ports, and are a substantial traffic hazard. But Katz called it “a bridge of peace,” as his vision is to see it eventually connect Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states to the port in Haifa, once hostilities between the Arab states and Israel finally cease.
Exporting to Europe via Israel would certainly make sense in economic terms for Arab countries, Katz pointed out. “The line … will serve as an alternative to the sea route, which circles the Arabian Peninsula.” Becoming a transportation hub in the Middle East would also obviously strengthen Israel’s economy immensely.

This unique Holocaust museum offers a glimpse into the daily lives and beliefs of religious Jews during the Holocaust.
By: AP
Faith and survival, not the machinery of death, are the central themes at an atypical Holocaust museum in Brooklyn.
The three-year-old Amud Aish Memorial Museum, located far from the tourist crowds near the very edge of the borough, focuses on the experiences of Orthodox Jews during and after the Holocaust.
Its collection includes letters, diaries, photos and religious items, like a frayed prayer shawl worn secretly by a prisoner at Auschwitz.
A museum that tells their story
Many were donated by Orthodox and ultra-Orthodox Jews who had stashed the artifacts in basements and attics who would not have given them to another museum, Amud Aish staffers said.
“Part of that is because their culture is different and they don’t patronize museums for the most part,” said Shoshana Greenwald, director of collections. “But here they felt this was a museum that would tell their story and understand where they are coming from.”

Israelis who have closely followed the career of Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas were not surprised by the extreme comments included in his speech on Sunday night to the Palestine Liberation Organization’s (PLO) Central Council meeting in Ramallah. During his rambling two-and-a-half-hour speech, Abbas rejected Jewish ties to the Holy Land, described Israel as a colonial project unconnected to Judaism, and asserted that European Jews chose to die in the Holocaust rather than go to Palestine. The tone was similar to the notorious book written by Abbas in 1982, titled The Other Side: The Secret Relationship between Nazism and Zionism, in which he argues that the Holocaust had been exaggerated and that Zionists created “the myth” of six million murdered Jews.

The Trump administration on Tuesday cut tens of millions of dollars in Palestinian funding, demanding that the UN agency responsible for the programs undertake a “fundamental re-examination,” the State Department said.
By: AP
In a letter, the State Department notified the U.N. Relief and Works Agency that the U.S. is withholding $65 million of a planned $125 million funding installment to the body. The letter also makes clear that additional U.S. donations will be contingent on major changes by UNRWA, which has been heavily criticized by Israel.
“We would like to see some reforms be made,” said State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert, adding that changes are needed both to the way the agency operates and is funded. “This is not aimed at punishing anyone.”
The State Department said it was releasing the rest of the installment — $60 million — to prevent the agency from running out of cash by the end of the month and closing down.
The U.S. is UNWRA’s largest donor, supplying nearly 30 percent of its budget.

Trump waives Iran sanctions, giving nuke deal “last chance” to fix its flaws; Iran rejects demand for change.
By: AP
Iran said Saturday it won’t accept any changes to its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers after President Donald Trump vowed to pull out of the accord in a few months if European allies did not fix its “terrible flaws.”

In a statement carried by the state-run IRNA news agency, the Foreign Ministry said Iran “will not accept any change in the deal, neither now nor in future,” adding that it will “not take any action beyond its commitments.”

It also said Iran would not allow the deal to be linked to other issues, after Trump suggested that the sanctions relief under the deal be tied to Iran limiting its long-range ballistic missile program.

Trump on Friday extended the waivers of key economic sanctions that were lifted under the agreement limiting Iran’s nuclear program. But he said he would work with European allies to remove so-called “sunset clauses” that allow Iran to gradually resume advanced nuclear activities in the next decade.

An unknown assailant slashed the face of a 15-year-old girl wearing a Jewish school uniform in Sarcelles.

By: Adina Katz, World Israel News

In what French lawmaker Francois Pupponi called “a heinous anti-Semitic attack,” an unknown assailant slashed the face of a 15-year-old Jewish girl in the northern Paris suburb of Sarcelles.

As reported by the Jewish Telegraphic Service (JTA), the attack occurred as the victim was walking home from school on Wednesday, wearing the uniform of her private Jewish school. Her mother told French daily Le Parisien that the girl arrived home bleeding and “shocked.”

The victim said she did not see her attacker’s face, explaining that he ran away immediately after the assault.

“I have no doubt the perpetrators of this attack had anti-Semitic motives,” Pupponi wrote in a statement Friday, JTA reported.
“Faced with these acts, we need to abandon pretense and naiveté,” he added. “In Sarcelles, everybody knows who is a practicing Jew according to the way they dress. Delinquents know it too. When someone slashes a young girl’s face with a utility knife, when she is wearing clothes favored by many women from the Jewish community, then there is no room for doubt.”

Yael Shevach, whose husband Rabbi Raziel Shevach was murdered in the drive by shooting terrorist attack on Tuesday night, called on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to legalize the Gilad Farm community in Samaria, the couple’s home.
In a statement released to the media Thursday, she impressed the need for residents living on the outpost to be allowed to reside there as proud Jews, and not have to fight for every stretch of land, being made to feel as “thieves in the night.”
The mother of six, who lost her husband after terrorists fired some 22 bullets at his car as he was returning to his home, said he was buried at the outpost “to leave a stake that would be impossible to uproot again.” Her comments come amid demands from Jewish residents living in Judea and Samaria that the government legalize the outpost in response to the attack, saying it is the best deterrence against further attacks.

Trump has canceled his scheduled visit to the UK, declining to cut the ribbon at the new US embassy.
President Donald Trump says he is canceling an upcoming trip to London because he doesn’t like the Obama administration’s choice of a new embassy there.
Some British lawmakers questioned whether Trump would be welcome in London because of previous tweets and criticism of Muslims and his sniping at London Mayor Sadiq Khan in the aftermath of a terror attack in that city last year.
But Trump’s late-night tweet singled out problems with the handling of the embassy.
“Reason I canceled my trip to London is that I am not a big fan of the Obama Administration having sold perhaps the best located and finest embassy in London for “peanuts,” only to build a new one in an off location for 1.2 billion dollars. Bad deal. Wanted me to cut ribbon-NO!”

Held in an opulent reception hall at the new Orient Hotel in Jerusalem, the event featured a range of entertainment and an impressive buffet, but less than 10 minutes of the Prime Minister on stage answering journalists’ questions.

Israel is taking action against a Palestinian family notorious for its international anti-Israel activism.
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
Israel is stepping up its actions against the Tamimi family, a Palestinian family notorious for their publicized provocations against the Jewish state.
The Israel Hayom daily reported that Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman instructed his ministry on Wednesday to sanction the family, possibly in an attempt to curtail the family’s decade-long anti-Israel campaign.
The family “star,” Ahed Tamimi, 16, was arrested last month after she was documented provoking IDF soldiers and then assaulting them as they operated to quell a violent protest in the village of Nabi Saleh.
Tamimi and her family routinely engage in provoactions against the IDF. The blonde-haired blue-eyed woman is one of the most famous Palestinians alive. She has been honored by world leaders, NGOs, and the global press. She first became famous in 2012 after a video, allegedly depicting her facing IDF soldiers alone and shouting at them, went viral. Google lists over 729,000 news stories that mention her.

Following Tuesday’s shooting attack in northern Samaria, near Shechem (Nablus), during which a terrorist gunned down 35-year-old Rabbi Raziel Shevach, Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum issued a laudatory statement on the terrorist organization’s official website.
“Hamas blesses the heroic Nablus operation that comes as a result of the Zionist occupation’s violations and crimes at the expense of our people in the West Bank, Jerusalem and al-Aksa Mosque,” announced Barhoum, according to the Jerusalem Post. Barhoum referred to the murder as “an affirmation that our Palestinian people’s compass is Jerusalem and al-Aksa Mosque and that its choice is the resistance.”
The response is consistent with Hamas’ policy of praising terror attacks against Israeli civilians.
“The Nablus operation is the first practical response with fire to remind the enemy’s leaders and those who support them that what you fear is coming,” said Abu Obeid, a spokesman for Hamas’ military division, Izzadin Kassam, reported the Post.

Reports suggest attack on Philippe’s nephew may be related to France’s refusal to recognize Jerusalem as capital of the Jewish state.
By Margot Dudkevitch
The 25-year-old nephew of French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe was among three foreign tourists stabbed by a gang of men in Israel’s Red Sea resort town of Eilat last week, police told the Hebrew news daily Yediot Aharonot Monday.
An Eilat police spokesperson said the identity of the nephew emerged during questioning of the tourists following the incident, which occurred last Wednesday. A police patrol discovered the three tourists lying on the promenade; all suffered stab wounds to their lower bodies.
Police said the perpetrators, who fled the scene, are believed to be Israelis. The three were evacuated to the city’s Yoseftal Medical Center for treatment and flown back to France on Friday. The motive for the attack remains unclear.
Foreign media reports suggested the stabbing may have been linked to the planned publication of three anti-Semitic essays by the late French writer and physician Louis-Ferdinand Destouches (aka Celine), which received the support of the French prime minister despite generating an outcry from the country’s Jewish community. Other media reports said the attack could be linked to anger in Israel over France’s refusal to accept US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as capital of the Jewish State.

“Israel is motivated by purely humanitarian reasons when it comes to this issue, and will thus reinstate the electric supply previously provided,” COGAT said.
COGAT is the IDF unit responsible for implementing government policy in Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu instructed the defense ministry Thursday to connect Havat Gilad to the national electric grid, at the request of the family of Raziel Shevach, the Havat Gilad resident who was murdered in a drive-by shooting Tuesday night.
Since its founding in 2002 in response to the murder of Gilad Zar, the outpost has relied on generators for power because the community has never been approved by civil and defense authorities.
Netanyahu’s order followed a similar instruction by Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman following Shevach’s funeral Wednesday to the Defense Ministry to grant assistance to the family and to residents of the community and to “consider the possibility” of granting Havat Gilad the status of a recognized town in Judea and Samaria.

Anxious family members awaited word on loved ones Wednesday as rescue crews searched grimy debris and ruins for more than a dozen people missing after mudslides in Southern California destroyed an estimated 100 houses, swept cars to the beach and left at least 17 victims dead.
“It’s just waiting and not knowing, and the more I haven’t heard from them — we have to find them,” said Kelly Weimer, whose elderly parents’ home was wrecked by the torrent of mud, trees and boulders that flowed down a fire-scarred mountain and slammed into the coastal town of Montecito in Santa Barbara County early Tuesday.

By: Jonathan Tobin/JNS
We didn’t need the publication of a new book filled with behind-the-scenes gossip to know that Donald Trump is an unconventional and, at times, inappropriate president. His use of Twitter provides many examples of this fact.
But amid another flurry of questionable tweets on Jan. 4, Trump also talked about threatening aid cuts to the Palestinian Authority (PA). Most of the mainstream media treated that idea as being as loopy as the latest exchange of insults with North Korea’s dictator. But while it’s easy to mock Trump’s social media habits, this one made sense and showed that, not for the first time, the president’s instinctual distrust of experts and the foreign policy establishment may have served him well.

By: Ebin Sandler, World Israel News
Speaking at a Ministry of Finance conference on Tuesday, Mossad chief Yossi Cohen weighed in on the ongoing protests in Iran, according to Kan Radio. Cohen commented, “Israel has eyes and ears [in Iran],” and would be “happy to see a social revolution” there.
In addition to commenting on the social unrest currently unfolding in the Islamic Republic, Cohen also struck a cautionary tone, warning that Iranian military ambitions are being realized in the Middle East through an “air and land corridor that pours fighters into the region in order to actualize the Iranian vision,” reported the Jerusalem Post.
Returning to the popular demonstrations in Iran, Cohen posited that the nation’s president, Hassan Rouhani, is seen by many Iranians as a disappointment, having failed to improve the economy or the plight of the average citizen. Cohen also referred to “death squads” in Iran tasked with quelling demonstrations. To date, some 22 Iranians have been killed as a result of the unrest.

By Margot Dudkevitch
There is a secret alliance between Israel and Saudi Arabia aimed at restraining Iran’s expansion in the region, the Swiss newspaper Basler Zeitung reported earlier this month.
While there are no diplomatic ties between the two countries, military cooperation does exist, with both countries sharing a common goal, which is to curb Iran’s efforts to undermine the stability in the region.
The Iranian threat has pushed Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states to seek secret cooperation with the Jewish state. Ties between Saudi Arabia and Israel have warmed recently, and there have been reports of under-the-table collaboration between the two countries, especially on military and intelligence issues.
Quoting unidentified sources in Riyadh, the report said officials in Saudi Arabia are considering purchasing Israel’s advanced Iron Dome missile defense system as well as the Trophy Active Protection System developed by Rafael and Israel Aerospace.

By the end of the business day on Friday, Trump must once again decide whether to extend or cancel the nuclear agreement with Iran. Israeli experts say key decision could go either way.
By Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
Another key deadline is coming up regarding the renewal of US sanctions on Iran. By Friday, President Donald Trump must — once again — sign waivers on Iranian sanctions to keep the nuclear accord alive or refuse to sign, thereby terminating US participation in the agreement.
Trump has called the Iran deal “the worst deal ever negotiated” and repeatedly said he would like to end the US commitment. On the other hand, his national security team is reportedly urging the president to keep the nuclear accord alive or risk setting off an international crisis and possible Iranian renewal of its nuclear weapons program.
Leading Israeli expert on Iranian affairs Dr. Eran Lerman told World Israel News (WIN), “Trump wants to avoid a major crisis at this time, so I expect he will try to find another way to delay a decision to impose sanctions, while keeping all options open.”

The IDF boosted its presence in Samaria and launched a manhunt on Wednesday for the Palestinian terror cell that shot and killed Rabbi Raziel Shevach on Tuesday night.
The IDF expanded its checkpoints at the entrances to Shechem (Nablus), the Palestinian city closest to the vicinity of the attack, where the terror cell is believed to have escaped. The IDF also imposed a partial curfew on surrounding Palestinian towns.
Senior IDF officers convened after the attack to assess the situation and issue new plans to capture the terror cell. Further IDF forces were brought in to the region to help with the operation.
Palestinian terrorists killed Shevach, a resident of Havat Gilad in northern Samaria, in a drive-by shooting. Raziel, a father of six, was 35.

By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
Hamas leader Imad al-Alami was critically injured on Tuesday when a bullet penetrated his head. Hamas stated that the incident occurred while he was checking his handgun.
According to some reports, al-Alami attempted suicide because he was suffering from cancer; others say it was an assassination attempt.
Al-Alami has previously served as a member of Hamas’ political bureau, as a liaison between Iran and Hamas, as a terror coordinator out of Syria, and recently as a fundraiser for the terror group.
In 2003, the US declared him a “specially designated global terrorist”.
Hamas spokesperson Fawzi Barhoum stated in a press release that the incident left Al-Alami in critical condition.
The terrorist organization also claimed that Al-Alami was injured and had a foot amputated during Operation Protective Edge in 2014, when an Israeli raid targeted his home. However, Israeli sources report that the incident was actually an inside attempt on his life and that unidentified individuals had dumped him from a high place, which caused the injuries.

“Spying on people and institutions with special ties to the state of Israel on German soil is an egregious violation of German law,” Germany told Iran.
By: World Israel News Staff
Germany summoned Iran’s ambassador in Berlin to warn the Islamic Republic against gathering intelligence on Israel from inside the country, saying such acts violate German law.
The meeting occurred last month, but the news came to light on Tuesday after a Pakistani man, who was convicted in March of spying for Iran and sentenced to more than four years in prison, appealed to the German Constitutional Court and was rejected.
The Pakistani, Mustufa Haidar Syed-Naqfi, was convicted of spying on behalf of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC). Syed-Naqfi’s spying was connected to Reinhold Robbe, the former head of the German-Israel Friendship Society, and Daniel Rouach, a French-Israeli professor from the Ecole Superieure de Commerce de Paris University.
The IRGC is entrusted with Iran’s foreign espionage and sabotage activities.
According to prosecutors, Syed-Naqfi collected large amounts of information including photos and video of the two men, and details of their workplaces, homes, families and acquaintances as well as the neighborhoods and public transportation they frequented. He then allegedly sent the information to a contact called “Mahmud” who passed it on to the Iranian Quds Force unit.

By: World Israel News Staff
Jewish students were fined by the Vienna police after waving an Israeli flag at a pro-Palestinian demonstration a month ago.
Antonia Yamin, Israel Radio’s Europe correspondent, reported Tuesday that three Jewish students recently received a 100 Euro fine each from Vienna police after waving an Israeli flag at a pro-Palestinian demonstration last month protesting President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, a demonstration at which “Death to the Jews” was shouted.
Virulent anti-Israel protests were held in several cities across Europe last month. Many of the demonstrations were marked by extreme anti-Israel and anti-Zionist messages, with some denying Israel’s right to exist and others supporting violence.
The stated reason for the fine was: “behav[ing] insensibly, violat[ing] public order and creat[ing] a provocation,” Yamin reported.
According to Vice.com, which reported on the December 8 demonstration, hundreds of people participated in the protest at the US Embassy.
“Anti-Semitic slogans could be heard there, again and again,” Vice reported.

Israeli lawmakers were warned that the ICC may open an investigation on alleged IDF war crimes and construction of Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.
By Margot Dudkevitch
Israel’s National Security Council (NSC) has warned lawmakers in the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee that the International Criminal Court (ICC) in the Hague is expected to launch an investigation into Operation Protective Edge, the Israeli military offensive against Hamas terrorists in Gaza in the summer of 2014, as well as construction of Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria.
“Since the beginning of 2014, Gaza terrorists have fired more than 450 rockets at innocent Israeli civilians,” an IDF spokesperson said when the Operation was launched. “Rocket fire endangers more than 3.5 million people – about 40 percent of Israel’s population. The threat facing Israel is intolerable, and the IDF is determined to stop it.”
A report by Israel’s Channel 10 noted that at the request of the Palestinian Authority, the international court has already conducted preliminary probes of the two issues. NSC officials expressed concern that Israeli officials could be summoned to appear before the court for alleged war crimes.
In late 2017, ICC chief prosecutor Fatou Bensouda published a report listing preliminary examinations of Palestinian claims against Israel.

Israeli police were successful in saving two female tourists who were attacked by a Palestinian mob.
The tourists, driving a car with an Israeli license plate, mistakenly entered the Palestinian village of Tequa on Tuesday, where they were soon attacked by rock-throwing Palestinians.
Israel’s Channel 2 news reported that the police noticed the vehicle entering an area under Palestinian Authority (PA) jurisdiction and chased after them, initially thinking that the car was stolen.
One of the officers fired in the air to disperse the violent crowd, while the tourists’ car was damaged. No one was injured in the incident.
The tourists explained that they were on their way to the Dead Sea and made a wrong turn.
The police stated that its quick response prevented an incident which could have entailed several casualties.

Historic Tunisian synagogue set on fire

By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Unknown assailants tried to set fire to the 2,500-year-old El Ghriba synagogue on the Tunisian resort island of Djerba Tuesday night.
In a Facebook post, Elie Trabelsi, son of the synagogue president, wrote, “There was a failed attempt to burn down the synagogue in the Jewish Quarter of Djerba through the use of Molotov cocktails, but thank God, no one was hurt and security and civil protection are now doing their duty.”
Only light damage was caused, as the fire was put out quickly.
The attack came as violent protests erupted in several cities throughout the country against austerity measures the government had authorized in its 2018 budget, which raised taxes and prices on items such as gasoline. The moves were deemed necessary as part of an economic reform package needed to get approval a year ago for a $2.8 billion loan from the International Monetary Fund, as Tunisia tries to overcome its growing economic challenges.

The top Palestinian negotiator reiterated that the peace process will not be restarted until Washington rescinds its recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
By: Ebin Sandler, World Israel News

The Palestinians’ head negotiator, Saeb Erekat, announced on Tuesday that any peace talks sponsored by the United States would be rejected until the Americans revoke their December 6 recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
Erekat made these remarks to the Voice of Palestine radio station, reported the Palestinian Authority’s (PA) official Wafa news site, referring to any future US-proposed solutions or calls to restart the peace process as “unacceptable to the Palestinian leadership” until US President Donald Trump changes course on the US’ Jerusalem declaration.
Erekat’s comments are consistent with previous statements issued by PA President Mahmoud Abbas, who shortly after Trump’s announcement declared that the US had effectively resigned from its historical role as the primary peace broker in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Abbas has also maintained that he refuses to meet with American officials.
The PA response to the US also included lobbying for a United Nations (UN) vote condemning Trump’s move, which was met by threats from the White House to significantly reduce funding for the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), which is the primary UN body responsible for pumping aid money into Gaza and Judea and Samaria, among other locations in the Middle East with Palestinian populations.

By: Yona Schnitzer/TPS
Shortly after 8pm, the Magen David Adom (MDA) radio received reports of a shooting attack, apparently from the victim, who had served as an MDA volunteer.
Paramedics from the town of Kedumim, a short drive from the scene of the attack, arrived on the scene and evacuated the victim to Meir Medical Centre in Kfar Saba, where his death was confirmed.
“I left Kedumim in an MDA ambulance, arriving quickly at the scene. I saw on the side of the road, by the safety railing, a private vehicle with shooting markings on it,” said MDA paramedic Elyashiv Reichenberg, the first to arrive on the scene. “There was a 35-year-old semi-conscious man in the driver seat with bullet wounds in his upper body.”
MK Bezalel Smotrich, a resident of Kedumim, was on Route 60 at the time of the shooting and stopped to administer first aid. He wrote on Twitter, “Jewish Blood is not worthless!” and called on Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman to put an end to Palestinian terrorism. “Instruct our security forces to act with an iron fist! Make it clear to the Palestinians that they will pay a very heavy price for every attack like this.”

The Israeli government revealed the Palestinians’ price guide for payments to terrorists, exposing a system of compensation that increases based on the heinousness of the crime.
By: World Israel News Staff
In 2017 alone, the Palestinian Authority (PA) compensated terrorists and their next of kin to the tune of more than $347 million, reported Israel’s Defense Ministry to the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee Tuesday, according to a report by the Jerusalem Post.
The figures came from the PA’s own records, which also revealed a schedule of payments that increase significantly in proportion to the crime committed. Specifically, terrorists sentenced to three to five years in prison receive from the Palestinian government $580 per month, which equals the average Palestinian income. The PA pays terrorists sentenced to 20 years or more in prison over $2,800 per month.
The PA supplements these base salaries with bonus payments for terrorists who also hold Israeli citizenship and those with children and spouses. Each additional box the terrorist can check off earns them an additional $15 to $120 dollars per month.
While Palestinians who commit the most serious crimes, such as murder, can clear around $2,900 per month via their terror salary, the average working Israeli only makes $2,700 in the same time period.

The Strategic Affairs Ministry headed by Gilad Erdan has fully revealed its new, aggressive anti-Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) strategy that includes a $72 million budget and a blacklist of 21 organizations around the world whose leaders will be banned from entering Israel.
The budget is the largest sum ever earmarked by Israel for the purpose of combating BDS activities. Half the budget will come directly from the Ministry of Strategic Affairs, and the rest from donations from a group of at least 10 pro-Israel philanthropists.

The Knesset gave its final approval on Tuesday morning to a bill which requires any municipality that wants to pass a new local law to open stores on Shabbat, the Jewish day of rest, to receive the Interior Minister’s approval.
After a night-long debate, it was approved in its second and third readings with a slim majority of 58 in favor and 57 opposed.
The bill, dubbed the “mini-markets law,” was proposed by Interior Minister Aryeh Deri’s Shas party.
MKs Sofa Landver of Yisrael Beitenu, MK Sharren Haskel of the Likud party, Tali Ploskov of Kulanu, Mordechai Yogev of Habayit Hayehudi and Yossi Yonah of the Zionist Camp did not take part in the vote, which came after a 15-hour filibuster by the opposition.

By: AP
A man and woman who met on a Muslim dating website were convicted on Monday of plotting a bomb attack in Britain.
Prosecutors say Munir Mohammed, 35, an asylum-seeker from Sudan, and London pharmacist Rowaida El-Hassan, 32, met on SingleMuslim.com and bonded over their shared extremist views.
Both defendants denied the charges, but jurors at London’s Central Criminal Court found them guilty of preparing terrorist acts.
Prosecutors said Mohammed volunteered to carry out an attack during Facebook exchanges with a man he believed to be an Islamic State group commander.
Police said they found bomb-making instructions and two of the three components for the explosive TATP at Mohammed’s home when he was arrested in December 2016.

The Israeli prime minister suggests man-made islands as a solution to overcrowding and a suitable location for desalination and power plants.
By Margot Dudkevitch
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced plans to set up a new committee to examine the construction of artificial islands off Israel’s coast as a means to address overcrowding and the relocation of infrastructure and energy plants.
Speaking at the weekly cabinet meeting Sunday, Netanyahu conceded that since 1996, when he served his first term as prime minister, he has been toying with the idea. “Israel is one of the most crowded countries in the world, and it is predicted that by mid-century it might well be the most crowded country in the world.”
Netanyahu said. “We have a coast on which we have built infrastructure such as desalination plants, power stations and other infrastructure facilities. This proposal is designed to build off Israel’s coast, artificial islands that will absorb all these infrastructures, clear the coasts and of course give us more land.”

Israel reportedly targeted weapons depots outside of Damascus early Tuesday morning. Syria says it foiled the attacks.
By Margot Dudkevitch
Reports out of Syria claim regime forces thwarted three Israeli missile strikes on Syrian military outposts in the Qutayfeh area outside Damascus before dawn Tuesday. There were no reports of casualties, but damage was caused to at least one of the facilities hit.
The report claims Syrian air defense systems intercepted at least one of the missiles. The official Syrian news site SANA said the country’s General Command of the armed forces holds Israel responsible for the attacks and any ramifications.
Syrian rebel forces reported the sites attacked by Israel were weapons depots. Adopting its usual policy, Israel neither confirmed or denied the reports. However, the top government and security echelon have constantly stated that Israel has the right to defend itself and will operate wherever necessary to ensure the safety and security of the country’s citizens.
Since the outbreak of the civil war in Syria, Israel has provided medical and humanitarian aid to Syrian victims of the war, responded to cross-border fire, and conducted air strikes inside Syria targeting weapons depots

Pew Research Center estimates that there were about 3.45 million Muslims of all ages living in the US in 2017, and that Muslims made up about 1.1 percent of the total US population.
Muslims in the US are not as numerous as the number of Americans who identify as Jewish by religion, according to Pew’s estimate.

By: AP
Malaysia’s opposition alliance has named 92-year-old former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad as its prime minister candidate for upcoming general elections to boost its chances of wrestling power from a coalition that has ruled since independence.
The announcement Sunday by the four-party Hope Alliance puts an end to squabbling over the thorny issue and is seen as a major show of unity ahead of polls that must be held by August but are widely expected in the second quarter.
Prime Minister Najib Razak has clung to power despite an epic corruption scandal that involved hundreds of millions of dollars passing through his bank accounts. Support for his ruling National Front coalition has dwindled in the last two elections. In 2013, the coalition lost the national popular vote for the first time to the opposition.
