Trump: Time for US to recognize Israeli sovereignty in Golan Heights
 March 21, 2019
Trump: Time for US to recognize Israeli sovereignty in Golan HeightsUS President Donald Trump meets with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the United Nations headquarters, in New York City, USA. September 26, 2018. Photo by Avi Ohayon/GPO
You made history,” Netanyahu told Trump in a phone call, thanking the U.S. leader for recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.
By Associated Press
U.S. President Donald Trump said Thursday that it’s time for the United States to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the disputed Golan Heights, an announcement that signals a shift in U.S. policy and comes ahead of the Israeli prime minister’s planned visit next week to the White House.
The administration has been considering recognizing Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan, which Israel captured from Syria in the 1967 Six Day War, when the then-tiny Jewish state was threatened with annihilation by the surrounding Arab nations. Last week, in its annual human rights report, the State Department dropped the phrase “Israeli-occupied” from the Golan Heights section, instead calling it “Israeli-controlled.”

“After 52 years it is time for the United States to fully recognize Israel’s Sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which is of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and Regional Stability!” Trump tweeted on Thursday.
Minutes later, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tweeted his appreciation. “At a time when Iran seeks to use Syria as a platform to destroy Israel, President Trump boldly recognizes Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights. Thank you President Trump!”
US promises to keep pressure on Iran
Trump’s announcement came as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is in Jerusalem, lauding warm ties with Israel and promising to step up pressure on Iran.
Netanyahu thanked Pompeo for the Trump administration’s strong stance against Iran, which Israel regards as an existential threat.
“You could imagine what would have happened if Israel were not in the Golan,” Netanyahu said. “You would have Iran on the shores of the Sea of Galilee.”
Pompeo paid a solemn visit Thursday to Jerusalem’s Western Wall along with Netanyahu, where deposited written prayers in its crevices and then toured nearby tunnels and a synagogue.
The secretary said he thought it was important to visit the wall with the Israeli leader as a show of support for Israel.

“I think it’s symbolic that a senior American official go there with a prime minister of Israel,” he said before making the trip. “It’s a place that’s important to many faiths, and I’m looking forward to it. I think it will be very special.”

Israel also captured east Jerusalem and the Old City in the 1967 war, and for decades, U.S. officials refrained from visiting the Western Wall with Israeli leaders to avoid the appearance of recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the city’s most sensitive holy sites. The Palestinians seek east Jerusalem as the capital of a future state.

But the Trump administration has upended the longstanding policy, moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem last year after recognizing the city as Israel’s capital. Israel claims all of Jerusalem as its eternal and indivisible capital.

Senior U.S. officials, including Trump and numerous predecessors, have visited the wall privately in the past, but never with an Israeli leader.

Netanyahu will be welcomed at the White House next week at Trump’s invitation.
By Associated Press
President Donald Trump will host Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House next week.
The president will welcome Netanyahu for his third White House visit since Trump took office, the White house said Wednesday. They will discuss Middle East issues in a meeting March 25 and Trump will host Netanyahu for dinner March 26.
Trump and Netanyahu have enjoyed a close relationship and Trump has been applauded in Israel for recognizing Jerusalem as their capital and moving the U.S. Embassy there. His administration has been working on a Middle East peace plan, but has yet to release details.
The prime minister is visiting the United States weeks before elections in Israel. His poll numbers have sagged since the announcement of a pending indictment on corruption charges but have since recovered.

Analysis: Gazans finally riot for the right reasons

Analysis: Gazans finally riot for the right reasons(Flash90/Wissam Nassar)
“We want to live” has become the watchword of demonstrations against the cost of living in the Gaza Strip.
By Edy Cohen, JNS
In recent days, we have been witness to unprecedented demonstrations against the cost of living in the Gaza Strip. The demonstrators, mostly young people, initially took to the streets in the Jabalia refugee camp and Deir al-Balah in the north of the enclave, and later in Khan Younis in the south.
This is a “popular movement” whose slogan, “We want to live,” quickly developed into a hashtag on social media.
Their goal is simple: to improve the economic situation. On social media, there have been calls and images of graffiti in Gaza blaming Hamas for the dire economic situation. The terrible state of affairs in Gaza is reflected in limited electricity, high unemployment, high living costs, poverty, overcrowding, lack of salaries and a terrorist regime, among other things.
Hamas officials tried with all their might to thwart the protests, even resorting to using live fire on demonstrators. Dozens of videos documenting Hamas violence against Gazans were posted online. In one such video, an 11-year-old boy with signs of violence on his back says he was badly beaten by Hamas officials.
In another video that went viral, a female resident of the enclave accuses Hamas of shooting at young people. This brave woman wonders aloud if this is the regime promised to them by senior Hamas military leader Yahya Sinwar and Hamas political bureau chief Ismail Haniyeh. “My husband is employed, as are my four children, while the 20-year-old son of a Hamas commander drives a private jeep and has an apartment,” she laments.
These statements indicate that the residents of Gaza have broken through the barrier of fear that has prevailed in Gaza since Hamas expelled the Palestinian Authority and took control there.

The U.S. secretary of state commented to a Christian media outlet that he sees his nation’s support for the Jewish state as potentially divinely inspired.
By World Israel News Staff
During a recent visit to Israel, Mike Pompeo spoke with the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), weighing in on the U.S.’ role in the Middle East and the Trump administration’s strategy.
CBN’s Middle East Bureau Chief Chris Mitchell posited to Pompeo during an exclusive interview, “Could it be that President Trump right now has been sort of raised for such a time as this, just like Queen Esther, to help save the Jewish people from the Iranian menace?”
Mitchell’s question referenced the Biblical epoch commemorated by the Purim holiday, during which a Persian ruler and his adviser plotted to exterminate the Jewish people. Mitchell appeared to compare Purim’s hero, Queen Esther, to Trump, alluding to the present-day designs of Iran to destroy Israel.

By World Israel News Staff
On Saturday, hundreds of demonstrators gathered in the Golan Heights to protest an announcement made by President Donald Trump on Thursday that the U.S. recognizes Israeli sovereignty over the territory.
Trump’s announcement arrived over five decades after Israel first captured the Golan Heights from Syria in the 1967 Six Day War, annexing it for all intents and purposes despite lack of acknowledgement from the international community that the territory belongs to Israel.

UN condemns Israel for war crimes at Gaza border, ‘ignoring reality’

“The Human Rights Council repeated today its absurd, hypocritical ritual of creating a Commission of Inquiry singling out Israel…all the while ignoring reality on the ground,” Israel’s foreign ministry stated.
By World Israel News Staff
The United Nations Human Rights Council on Friday condemned Israel for human rights violations, including war crimes, regarding the IDF’s response to the violent riots at the Israel-Gaza border, led by Hamas and Islamic Jihad, which began exactly a year ago.
The Council voted in Geneva 23 to 9 to adopt the 252-page report conducted by the Commission of Inquiry on the Protests in the Occupied Palestinian Territory.
The nine countries that voted against the resolution were Brazil, Australia, the Czech Republic, Austria, Bulgaria, Hungary, the Ukraine, Togo and Fiji.
Afghanistan, Angola, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Chile, China, Cuba, Egypt, Eritrea, Iraq, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Peru, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Somalia, South Africa, Spain and Tunisia voted in favor.
Fourteen countries abstained: The U.K., Denmark, Iceland, Italy, India, Japan, Argentina, the Bahamas, Croatia, the Congo, Nepal, Rwanda, Slovkia and Uruguay.
“The commission found reasonable grounds to believe that individual members of the Israeli security forces, in the course of their response to the demonstrations, killed and gravely injured civilians who were neither directly participating in hostilities nor posing an imminent threat,” the report says.

Mueller concludes Russia-Trump probe with no new indictments

Mueller completed an extensive investigation on Friday related to alleged ties between President Donald Trump and Russian actors without announcing any new new charges.
By Associated Press
Special counsel Robert Mueller closed his long and contentious Russia investigation with no new charges Friday, officially ending the probe into President Donald Trump but launching a fresh wave of political battles over the still-confidential findings.
The report’s details remained a mystery, accessible to only a handful of Justice Department officials while Attorney General William Barr prepared to release the “principal conclusions” soon.
The closure of the 22-month probe without additional indictments by Mueller was welcome news to some in Trump’s orbit.
The Justice Department said the report was delivered by a security officer Friday afternoon to the office of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and then it went to Barr.
Word of the delivery triggered reactions across Washington, including Democrats’ demands that it be quickly released to the public and Republicans’ contentions that it ended two years of wasted time and money.
The next step is up to Barr, who is charged with writing his own account of Mueller’s findings and sending it to Congress. In a letter to lawmakers, he declared he was committed to transparency and speed. He said he could provide details as soon as this weekend.
The White House sought to keep some distance from the report, saying it had not seen or been briefed on the document.
With no details released at this point, it’s not known whether Mueller’s report answers the core questions of his investigation related to Trump’s alleged dealings with the Kremlin surrounding the 2016 presidential election.
The delivery of the report does mean the investigation has concluded without any public charges of a criminal conspiracy between the campaign and Russia, or of obstruction by the president. A Justice Department official confirmed that Mueller was not recommending any further indictments.
That person, who described the document as “comprehensive,” was not authorized to discuss the probe and asked for anonymity.

Pompeo in Lebanon to step up pressure on Hezbollah

“We’ll spend a lot of time talking with the Lebanese government about how we can help them disconnect from the threat that Iran and Hezbollah present,” Pompeo told reporters earlier this week.
By Associated Press
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo held talks with Lebanese leaders on Friday amid strong regional condemnation of President Donald Trump’s declaration that it’s time the U.S. recognized Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights.
During his two-day visit, Pompeo is meeting with top officials, including some who are aligned with the Iran- and Syria-allied terrorist Hezbollah group.
The visit is the last leg of a Mideast tour that took Pompeo to Kuwait and Israel, where he lauded warm ties with Israel, met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on at least three separate occasions, including an official visit to the Western Wall in the Old City of Jerusalem, and promised to step up pressure on Iran.
From Israel, Pompeo’s plane travelled through the Cypriot airspace, as Lebanon, which is technically in a state of war with Israel, bans direct flights from Israel.
Once on the ground, Pompeo was taken to the Interior Ministry for a brief meeting with Raya El-Hassan, who was named earlier this year as the Arab world’s first female minister in charge of security.

Heroic rabbi, father of 12, who turned back to shoot terrorist dies from his woundsRabbi Ahiad Ettinger (Chabad.org/News
Rabbi Ettinger, a father of 12, perished from a head wound a day after the attack.
By David Isaac, World Israel News
Rabbi Ahiad Ettinger is the second victim to die at the hands of the terrorist, who attacked IDF soldiers and civilians in Samaria on Sunday.
Ettinger, 47, who was in his car at the Ariel junction during the attack, drew his weapon and was about to fire at the terrorist when he was struck in the head by bullets.
In a heroic act, the rabbi apparently turned back to the site of the shooting to try and stop the terrorist but was killed in the attempt.
A close friend of Ettinger told Ynet news, “In a split moment’s decision, he decided to turn around and return to the scene of the incident, drew his weapon and tried to neutralize the enemy. Unfortunately, the terrorist shot him first. He saw that a Jew was about to be hurt and he went to help. That’s what he did all his life.”
Ettinger leaves behind a wife and 12 children, ages one to 22. One child serves in an elite IDF unit, according to reports.

Omar: Israel is ‘the historical homeland of Palestinians’
“We must acknowledge that this is also the historical homeland of Palestinians,” writes the Muslim congresswoman in a Washington Post op-ed article.
By World Israel News Staff
“The founding of Israel 70 years ago was built on the Jewish people’s connection to their historical homeland…We must acknowledge that this is also the historical homeland of Palestinians,” writes Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) in an op-ed article in The Washington Post, published in Monday’s edition of the newspaper.
In the article, the Muslim congresswoman describes herself as someone who fled her “home country of Somalia when I was 8 years old” and “spent the next four years in a refugee camp in Kenya, where I experienced and witnessed unspeakable suffering from those who, like me, had lost everything because of war.”

At a vigil for the victims of the attacks on two Christchurch mosques, an NYU student accused Chelsea Clinton of using rhetoric encouraging attacks on Muslims.
By World Israel News Staff
U.S. President Donald Trump’s son Don Jr. has come to the defense of Chelsea Clinton, daughter of the Democratic presidential candidate who his father defeated in 2016.
In the immediate aftermath of the New Zealand mosque massacres on Friday, the younger Clinton was confronted by a student while attending a New York University (NYU) interfaith vigil for the victims of the terror attacks on the two mosques.
A Twitter user by the name of “@Esor_Fasa” uploaded a video of a confrontation between NYU senior Leen Dweik and Clinton at the vigil on Friday night, according to the Washington Examiner, which adds that the account on which this video originated has since been deleted.
“This, right here, is a result of a massacre stoked by people like you and the words that you have put out into the world,” Dweik told Clinton in the video. “And I want you to know that and I want you to feel that deep down inside. Forty-nine people died because of the rhetoric you put out there.”
The student was referring to Clinton’s comments last month about the rhetoric used by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), a Muslim who criticized the support many members of Congress maintain with Israel. In various critical comments made by Omar about Israel, she has been accused of using anti-Semitic tropes.

Meeting with Israeli, Kuwaiti and Lebanese leaders, Pompeo will put the threat posed by Hezbollah high on the agenda, a senior U.S. official said.
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will travel to Israel this week for “critical” meetings with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during a three-country tour in the Middle East.
Pompeo will arrive in Jerusalem after attending the annual U.S.-Kuwait Strategic Dialogue event on Tuesday in Kuwait City, a senior State Department official told reporters last week, before moving on to Beirut.
Pompeo will meet with “a range of senior Israeli officials” to discuss “the challenges posed to the region, to Israel, to the United States by Iran and by Iranian proxies,” the official said. He will “reaffirm both privately and publicly during that visit our unwavering commitment to Israel’s security and its right to self-defense.”
Although the official stressed that the visit has nothing to do with Israel’s upcoming elections and is not an attempt to bolster Netanyahu among the electorate, it has been painted as such by Netanyahu’s opposition, who expect a final election gift from U.S. President Donald Trump to Netanyahu ahead of the April vote.
No political challengers to Netanyahu are included among the dignitaries scheduled to meet with Pompeo.

“No one should be harmed in any way while peacefully praying in a house of worship,” writes a daughter-in-law of a Pittsburgh victim.
By The Algemeiner
Members of Pittsburgh’s Jewish community are reaching out to the Muslims of Christchurch after the massacre at two mosques in the New Zealand city on Friday in which 50 worshipers were killed by a white supremacist gunman.
Marnie Fienberg — whose mother-in-law was one of the 11 Jews murdered at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh in October, also by a white supremacist assailant — wrote in NOW Magazine: “New Zealand may be halfway around the globe, but it’s the same story of hate and violence against people peacefully praying to their Creator.”
In addition to those killed, seven people were wounded during the attack at the Pittsburgh synagogue.
“I wish I was there to comfort the families and help support them in their pain and agony,” she added.
“I can’t stop crying for those left behind, especially the children — children who are old enough to understand that there is loss, but don’t understand the meaningless and utterly insane hatred that spawned it. Remembering the look on your children’s faces when you told them that their grandmother is dead from hatred haunts you every day,” said Feinberg.
“No one — no matter one’s religion, age, color, anything — should be harmed in any way while peacefully praying in a house of worship,” she wrote.

The IDF announced that Qeidan, 19 from Be’er Sheva, was promoted to the rank of First Sergeant after his death. He will be laid to rest on Monday at the military cemetery in Be’er Sheva.
Another IDF soldier was seriously wounded by the shooting at the Gitai Avisar Junction during the second phase of the attack.
The terrorist stabbed Qeidan at the Ariel junction, stole his weapon, fired at civilians, got into a car he high-jacked, drove to the Gitai Avisar Junction, and fired at Israelis at a bus station.
A civilian, Rabbi Achiad Etinger, was critically wounded in the attack at the Ariel Junction in Samaria.
Rabbi Etinger is currently hospitalized in the Intensive Care Unit and is in critical condition after being shot in the head.


US presidential hopeful Gillibrand has ‘mixed record’ on Israel

The U.S. senator has defended Israel against U.N. bias while supporting the Iran deal and withdrawing her sponsorship of the Israel Anti-Boycott Act.
By David Jablinowitz, World Israel News
U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) officially joined the 2020 presidential race on Sunday, issuing an announcement video stating that “we need to remember what it feels like to be brave.”
She accuses President Donald Trump of spreading hate and sets herself apart from the incumbent by telling her potential supporters: “I took your lead; I chose brave, too.”
Gillibrand, 52, has served in the Senate since 2009 and before that was a member of the House of Representatives. She joins an already crowded field of Democratic party hopefuls trying to gain the party nomination and ultimately defeat Trump in November 2020.
Among supporters of Israel, she is seen as someone with a mixed record. She has condemned the prevalent anti-Israel bias at the United Nations, although she has wavered on the issues of Iran and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
In September 2009, Gillibrand released a statement that the “Iranian regime’s word cannot be trusted, and a nuclear Iran cannot be tolerated,” only to support “an imperfect Iran deal” in 2015.
“I have decided to support this deal after closely reading the agreement, participating in multiple classified briefings, questioning Energy Secretary [Ernest] Moniz and other officials, consulting independent arms control experts, and talking with many constituents who both support and oppose this deal,” wrote Gillibrand.

“It’s the last straw for the High Court’s justices,” Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked declared, calling their decision a “massive and mistaken intervention going to the heart of Israeli democracy.”
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Leaders of the political right wing in Israel on Monday sharply condemned the High Court’s decision to ban Michael Ben-Ari of the nationalist Otzma Yehudit (Jewish Strength) party from running for Knesset in the upcoming elections.
The 8-1 ruling disqualified Ben-Ari on the basis of his alleged incitement to racism against Arabs. One of the focal points in the debate before the ruling, for example, was his public statements questioning Arab citizens’ loyalty to the State of Israel.

Manhunt launched after Dutch tram shooting
The death toll has risen to three in a shooting incident in Utrecht; nine victims were wounded, three seriously. Terror is suspected. 
By Associated Press
A shooting on a tram in the central Dutch city of Utrecht on Monday left at least three dead and “multiple” people wounded, police said, adding that they are considering the possibility of a “terrorist motive.” A manhunt was launched for the shooter.
German police say they have upped surveillance on the country’s border with the Netherlands and are on the lookout for the gunman behind a shooting.
Heinrich Onstein, a spokesman for the federal police in the border state of North Rhine-Westphalia, told the Associated Press that additional police had been added to watch not only major highways, but also minor crossings as well as railway routes.
He says the federal police are in close contact with authorities in the Netherlands and have a description of the suspect.

FAMILY TO DONATE VICTIM'S ORGANS
Father of 12 shot in Sunday terror attack succumbs to injuries
Rabbi Achiad Ettinger dies after being shot in attack near Ariel in northern West Bank; relatives say he managed to fire at attacker after being wounded

Rabbi Achiad Ettinger died of his injuries Monday, a day after being shot by a Palestinian terrorist during an attack in the northern West Bank, a family spokesperson said.

Ettinger, 47, was a father of 12 from the settlement of Eli. Doctors had been working to save his life since the attack near Ariel Sunday morning in which a soldier, Gal Keidan, was also killed.

Ettinger was shot in the head and neck as he drove by Ariel Junction by terror suspect Omar Abu Laila, 19, who had stolen Geidan’s gun and opened fire on passing cars, according to the IDF.

He was rushed to Beilinson Hospital in Petah Tikva in critical condition and doctors worked for a day to save his life before he succumbed to his injuries, the hospital said.

Relatives of Ettinger told reporters Sunday that despite having been shot and bleeding profusely, he turned his car around and fired four bullets in the direction of the attacker, who managed to escape in a vehicle abandoned by a fleeing driver

His family asked that his organs be donated, Ettinger’s sister told reporters.

Ettinger was the founder of south Tel Aviv’s Oz V’emuna hesder yeshiva, which combines Torah study with military service for young men. He was also active in the campaign against African migrants in the city’s southern Neve Sha’anan neighborhood.

The funeral procession for Ettinger is scheduled to leave Eli at 2 p.m. and pass through Ariel Junction, where the attack took place, before concluding at the Segula cemetery in Petah Tikva.

“The people of Israel mourn over the murder of the late Rabbi Achiad Ettinger. I wish to send condolences to his family at this difficult time. May his memory be a blessing,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tweeted.

“Rabbi Ettinger’s life’s work will continue with us even after his passing, and the strength he gave his students and the community he led will continue to strengthen us through this enormous grief and sorrow,” said President Reuven Rivlin in a statement.

Alexander Dvorsky, a soldier shot and injured by Abu Laila when he drove to nearby Gitai junction and opened fire again, remained in serious condition Monday.

The manhunt after Abu Laila was still ongoing Monday. Israeli security forces detained his father and brother in the nearby town of Az-Zawiya, according to the Ma’an Palestinian news site. Authorities believe Abu Laila fled into the village of Bruqin on foot after the attacks.

‘Defeat Hamas,’ Israeli candidates demand after rocket attacks

With a little less than a month before Israelis are scheduled to go to the polls for national elections, candidates call for ‘defeating Hamas’ after a dramatic rocket barrage at the end of the week.
By JNS.org and World Israel News Staff
Israeli war planes struck more 100 Hamas targets overnight on Thursday, reprisals for two long-range Fajr missiles fired from Gaza that soared over Tel Aviv earlier that evening, triggering warning sirens that sent residents of Israel’s second-most populated city scrambling for bomb shelters.
Following the rockets being launched from Gaza, warning sirens were triggered three times in Jewish communities along the border, with nine rockets reportedly fired at Israel—six intercepted by the Iron Dome air defense system, two landing in an open field and one failing to exit the Gaza Strip.

Is Netanyahu jumping on the cannabis bandwagon?

Is Netanyahu jumping on the cannabis bandwagon?Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu seen here on on March 11, 2019, said he would look into the possibility of pot legalization. (Flash90/Aharon Krohn)
Netanyahu indicated that he would be open to the legalization of cannabis on a webcast posted to his Facebook page.
By David Isaac, World Israel News
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appeared open to the legalization of recreational pot on a LikudTV webcast posted to his Facebook page on Monday.
Fielding a question from Israeli voter Nir Bouskila about legalization, Netanyahu said he had already led “several changes in this area: A) We increased the use of medical marijuana. We raised Israel to one of the highest levels in the world; B) Here there’s a world market. [Medical marijuana] has become a meaningful export arm of the State of Israel. And now I’m looking into the question that was asked and I will give an answer soon. … It’s possible that it will happen.”
A Jerusalem Post report suggests that Netanyahu’s comments are related to the recent success of the Zehut party in the polls. Zehut, led by Moshe Feiglin, had been floundering in the polls until recently when several surveys have shown it passing the electoral threshold.
Although a fervently right-wing party, Zehut takes a liberal stance on pot legalization, raising it to a major plank in the party’s well-developed party platform – so well-developed that the platform itself has become a bestseller in Israel.
Its position on cannabis legalization has been suggested as one of the reasons for its growing popularity with young voters.
Polls suggest that Zehut is poaching voters from the Likud, the New Right party and the extreme left-wing Meretz party, which has also pushed for marijuana legalization.

Analysis: Jordan faces existential threat to royal family’s ruleKing Abdullah II of Jordan (David Mareuil/pool via AP)
 hese days, Jordan, more than ever, is facing a real existential threat to the royal family’s continued rule.
By Daniel Siryoti, Israel Hayom via JNS
The events of the “Arab Spring,” which have kept the Middle East off-kilter for nearly 10 years now, skipped over the kingdom of Jordan. The citizens of the Hashemite kingdom, unlike their neighbors in Syria and Iraq, were not forced to deal with bloody civil wars, unchecked immigration by Islamist terrorist operatives and the absence of a centralized, stable government.
But these days, Jordan, more than ever, is facing a real existential threat to the royal family’s continued rule. This is mainly the result of geopolitical changes in the kingdom and outside its border, as well as regional processes and demographic changes in Jordan itself, mostly having to do with the Bedouin tribes and the Palestinians in Jordan, whom many Jordanians (including the Bedouin) see as “temporary residents.”

By Joseph Wolkin, World Israel News
The head of the Efrat Regional Council will speak at the AIPAC Policy Conference for the first time.
Oded Revivi will lead a panel during the conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, which will take place in Washington, D.C. between March 24-26.
The Yesha Council, which is the political arm of the Jewish-populated areas in Judea and Samaria, did not have a strong relationship with AIPAC in the past.
“To the best of my knowledge, this is the first time that an official representative of the Israeli settlement in Judea and Samaria is speaking at the AIPAC conference by virtue of his position,” Revivi said in an interview with the Israeli newspaper Israel Hayom.
“This comes after we worked closed closely with AIPAC’s office in Israel over the past two years,” he said.
“Up until a few years ago, AIPAC, like numerous U.S. administrations, had avoided any manner of ties with the residents of Judea and Samaria. It was only on rare occasions that the delegations it sent to Israel would also tour the settlements,” according to Israel Hayom.

Two shootings took place in the Samaria region. One Israeli soldier was killed, two Israelis in serious condition.
By World Israel News Staff
Two shootings took place in the Samaria region. An IDF combat soldier, identified as 19-year-old Gal Kaiden from Beersheba, was kiiled. Two Israelis were wounded and remain in serious condition. IDF forces are in pursuit of the killer.
Early reports say that the terrorist stabbed his first victim and stole his weapon, shot him and fled.
The same attacker then stole a car, traveled to nearby Giti Avisar junction and opened fire.
Magen David Adom paramedics evacuated two of the victims to Beilinson Hospital, including a 35-year-old man and a 20-year-old man.
Ram Shagai, deputy director of Beilinson Hospital, said one of the wounded is in very serious condition and the other in critical condition. “We are fighting for their lives,” he said.
Emergency medical technician MDA Hananel Hess recounted that when he was passing through the Ariel intersection he noticed a commotion.

By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel took credit for convincing then-President Bill Clinton not to make Jonathan Pollard’s release from prison part of the concessions demanded by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during Israeli-Palestinian peace talks 21 years ago.

In a March 7th article for the Atlantic magazine, the two-term mayor of Chicago wrote about his role in the negotiations as part of his defense of American Jews’ loyalty to their country. This was in reaction to the recent anti-Semitic tweets by Ilhan Omar, a freshman Muslim congresswoman who accused Jews of dual loyalty, leading to condemnations from both sides of the Congressional aisle.

‘How to Recognize a Jew’: Outrage over sale of anti-Semitic newspaper at Polish Parliament’s hotel

‘How to Recognize a Jew’: Outrage over sale of anti-Semitic newspaper at Polish Parliament’s hotel“How to Recognize the Jew”: The anti-Semitic headline in Polish publication “Tylko Polska.” (Twitter)
The Tylko Polska newspaper charges that Jews have “methods of disinformation” that must be fought.
By Ben Cohen, The Algemeiner
Poland’s parliament faced international embarrassment on Wednesday after one of its lawmakers spotted a newspaper on sale at the parliament’s hotel with the blood-curdling headline, “How to Recognize A Jew.”
Michal Kaminski, one of the parliamentary representatives of the opposition centrist PSL party, said he saw the paper on sale at the kiosk in the hotel on the parliament’s grounds where many members hold meetings and dine on a daily basis. The paper, a nationalist publication called “Tylko Polska,” ran a headline above the paper’s masthead that screamed in large red letters,  “Jak Rozpoznać Żyda” (“How to Recognize A Jew”).
The paper then listed various methods of “recognizing” Jews — “Name. Anthropological features. The way of speaking. The look. Features of the character. The methods of action. The methods of disinformation” – before exhorting its readers to “…Fight them — it can no longer be this way!”

J Street U launches ‘anti-Birthright’ trip that pushes Palestinian narrative
 March 14, 2019
J Street U is planning its own Birthright-style trip which will include meetings with Palestinian speakers.
By World Israel News Staff
J Street U, the left-wing Jewish campus group, announced on Wednesday its plans for a “model trip” to Israel and Judea and Samaria (or “West Bank”) for 40 U.S. Jewish college students in July 2019.
The trip is designed to emulate the highly successful Birthright Israel trips started in 1999, only with an emphasis on the Palestinian side of the Arab-Israeli conflict.
According to the announcement, only the one trip is planned, meant to serve as an example of what J Street U considers an ideal tour. It will include visits to tourism and heritage sites, meetings with “social justice activists, West Bank Palestinian communities and settler leaders,” J Street U says.
It is unlikely that J Street U, or its parent organization, J Street, both of which share the mission of promoting a Palestinian state, will raise anything near the funding necessary to compete with Birthright, which raises tens of millions and has brought over 600,000 young people from 67 countries since its first trip in the winter of 1999.
J Street U pledge
But it doesn’t appear that competing with Birthright is J Street U’s goal. The trip is part of a campaign to convince American Jewish students “to sign a pledge to only participate in organized trips to Israel that include meetings with both Israelis and Palestinians and that show participants how the occupation impacts daily life in the West Bank,” according to a J Street U press release.
“By taking this pledge, American Jewish students are calling for Israel education that is honest, nuanced and consistent with our Jewish and progressive values,” said J Street U President Eva Borgwardt, a senior at Stanford University.

Bernie Sanders’ campaign aide apologizes for anti-Jewish dual loyalty smear

By JNS
An aide working for Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) 2020 presidential campaign has apologized for asking whether the “American-Jewish community has a dual allegiance to the State of Israel,” a remark that reflects a longtime anti-Semitic trope.
“In a conversation on Facebook, I used some language that I see now was insensitive. Issues of allegiance and loyalty to one’s country come with painful history,” Belén Sisa, Sanders’ national deputy press secretary, told Politico in response to posting the question in a Facebook thread.

Hapoel Jerusalem’s Amar’e Stoudemire, in process of converting to Judaism, is now officially an Israeli citizen.
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Six-time NBA All-Star Amar’e Stoudemire received his Israeli citizenship Wednesday in a ceremony at Israel’s Interior Ministry.
Although the American basketball star is still only in the process of converting to Judaism, Interior Minister Aryeh Deri granted him the citizenship based on his “unique contributions” to Israeli society.
Stoudemire has played for Hapoel Jerusalem of the country’s Premier League since 2016. He immediately led his team  to the Israeli Basketball League Cup, and in 2017 he helped the team seize the Israeli League Championship.
He is also a part-owner of the team since 2013, although he had to suspend his ownership in order to play.
At the ceremony, Deri praised the 36-year-old star as a “tremendous basketball player, a wonderful man and great ambassador of Israel and our capital Jerusalem, who has tied his fate to that of Israel’s.”
Stoudemire was thrilled at getting his new ID card.

WIN Exclusive: 5 Arab parties in Israel you’ve never heard aboutArab-Israeli activists take part in a protest in Tel Aviv against poverty. (Flash90)
Most have heard of the Joint List, but there are over 10 other Arab-oriented parties, five of which are running for the 21st Knesset on April 9, 2019.  
By Sheri Oz, World Israel News
Certainly most Israelis, Jews and non-Jews alike, are familiar with the four parties making up the Joint List that gained 13 seats in the last national elections: Balad, Raam, Taal and Hadash. These are generally identified as Arab parties even though Hadash is an Arab-Jewish communist party. The Joint List has split into two (Hadash-Taal, Raam-Balad) for the upcoming elections.
Few Jewish Israelis are aware that there are more than 10 other Arab-oriented parties, five of which are running for the 21st Knesset on April 9, 2019.  Here are some facts about these five parties. They are listed in order of date of establishment.
1. Daam Workers Party
Founded in 1996, it is surprising, perhaps, that Daam Workers Party has not entered the Israeli consciousness to the extent that the other four veteran Arab parties have (Hadash 1977, Taal 1990, Raam 1990, Balad 1996).
Their website claims that they are seeking “revolutionary change in Israeli society, based on the principles of integration, equality, and social justice.” According to them, that goal can be achieved by a socialist society and an Arab Spring in the Palestinian Authority (PA) that will bring about the downfall of the PA; Daam sees the PA as a “subcontractor of Israeli occupation” and they support one state for two peoples.

Rashida Tlaib joins boycott campaign against University of Haifa

Rashida Tlaib joins boycott campaign against University of HaifaRep. Rashida Tlaib (Twitter)
The University of Haifa president counters: “We have Jews and Arab faculty and students coexisting…contradicting the narrative about Israel as an apartheid state.”
By World Israel News Staff 
U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (Mich.), a Democratic Party congresswoman who has voiced support for the BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) movement against Israel, is now supporting a move by anti-Israel faculty members at a small private California university to end its study abroad partnership with an Israeli university, according to Washington Free Beacon, a conservative website.
The campaign by faculty members at Pitzer College aims to suspend its study abroad program at Universityof Haifa until their demands are met by the Israeli government, says the news outlet.
Reportedly leading the effort is Professor Daniel Segal, an anthropology and history professor, who announced through his Twitter account that Tlaib was his movement’s newest backer.
“Tlaib is in with #SuspendPitzerHaifa,” he wrote, along with a picture of Tlaib holding the group’s information pamphlet.
The picture was also posted by the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel, says Washington Free Beacon.
Pitzer’s study abroad program to Israel is small. Only 11 students have made the trip since 2007 and no one has participated since 2016, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The next step reportedly is expected Thursday with a vote by the Pitzer College Council, which includes both faculty and students.
“We have Jews and Arab faculty and students coexisting and this seems to contradict the narrative about Israel as an apartheid state,” said University of Haifa President Ron Robin, adding that he would like to see his institute as “a microcosm of what Israeli society could look like.”
Tlaib’s office did not respond to a request for comment on her support for the Pitzer boycott, reported Washington Free Beacon.
A website for the campaign says that the group is demanding that the Israeli government cease “its restriction to entry to Israel based on ancestry and/or political speech” and adopt “policies granting visas for exchanges to Palestinian universities on a fully equal basis as it does to Israeli universities.”

Cannabis farming startup Seedo announced Tuesday that the CEO of the PepsiCo-owned water carbonation company will be joining its board.
By Tzally Greenberg, Calcalist
Daniel Birnbaum, the CEO of Israeli at-home water carbonation products company SodaStream International Ltd., has recently made two investments in cannabis companies.
On Tuesday, Israel-based startup Seedo (incorporated as Eroll Grow Tech Ltd.), a company developing a home cannabis farming device, announced Birnbaum will be joining its board of directors. In addition to joining the company’s board, Birnbaum will be investing NIS 2 million ($550,000) in the device maker, one person familiar with the matter told Calcalist on condition of anonymity.
Seedo, founded in 2013 and headquartered in Israeli port city Haifa, is traded over the counter in the U.S. with a market capitalization of $31.69 million. The company delivered its first batch of home growing devices to customers in February.
Last week, Birnbaum made a NIS 5 million ($1.38 million) investment in Israeli cannabis producer Cannbit Ltd. in exchange for a 5% stake in the company. Cannbit recently appointed cannabis research pioneer Raphael Mechoulam as chairman of its scientific advisory committee.

The Palestinians “talk about from the land to the sea, which means having all the Jews wiped away,” said a Jewish student’s mother.
By Shiryn Ghermezian, Algemeiner
Parents are fuming over a map display that was presented at a recent cultural event at a Georgia middle school which featured “Palestine” in place of present-day Israel, local news station 11Alive reported late last week.
The map was seen at a multicultural night hosted by Autrey Mill Middle School in Fulton County, Ga. Several Jewish and Israeli parents deemed the map highly offensive and complained to school authorities.
“Kids who saw this or anybody that was exposed to this last night that doesn’t even know what the story is behind all this, right now, thinks that this is the map of Palestine,” said one Jewish mother.
“Israel wasn’t mentioned on that map at all,” another Jewish student’s mother said. “They basically wrote Palestine in the place of Israel. They [the Palestinians] talk about from the land to the sea, which means having all the Jews wiped away and the Palestinians on the land instead of the Jews.”
According to the report, the presence of the map was reported to the school’s principal, J.E. Trey Martin, but it was not removed. Another image from the event shared by parents showed a table featuring Israel and Jewish-related cultural items such as a menorah, a Jewish skullcap, also known as a kippah, and a flag of Israel.
“Nobody in the school was going over the content of the materials that is being presented,” one of the parents said.
Martin sent a lengthy letter to parents on Friday saying he was “extremely disappointed and disgusted with the individuals who presented an insensitive political and geographic representation” adding that “this display does not represent our school culture, which is one that values inclusion and unity.”

By David Jablinowitz, World Israel News
Amid speculation that a major Israeli attack on the Gaza Strip could take place before the April 9 Israeli general election, Hamas – the terror group which rules the Strip – reportedly is preparing for such an eventuality.
Arab media reports reveal that Hamas has detained Palestinians who are suspected of collaborating with Israel, and learned through these informants that the Israeli military was mobilizing for a major strike. According to the information relayed, say media outlets, Israel would “exploit” an attack from Gaza that causes major damage or loss of life in order to hit back hard at Hamas.

Arabs hurl molotov cocktail on Temple Mount, damage Israeli police post(Screenshot) 
Amid rising tensions on the holy site, police say arrests were carried out and the Mount was closed to allow for searches.
By World Israel News Staff
More violence was reported on the Temple Mount on Tuesday, amid rising tensions over recent weeks.
An Israel Police statement said that “three suspects who hurled a molotov cocktail at a police post on the Temple Mount were detained,” adding that “the police post was damaged.”
The Jerusalem police commander subsequently ordered the Mount closed to allow for searches to be carried out.
No injuries were reported.
Tensions have been especially high since the Waqf Islamic authority, which operates the Muslim holy sites, breached the Gate of Mercy on the Mount last month. The gate had been closed by Israel in 2003 because it said that a Hamas-linked organization had taken control of the site and was acting against the interests of the Jewish State.
Jordan, which serves as a patron of the Muslim sites under the terms of its 1994 peace treaty with Israel, recently bolstered the Waqf with Palestinian members loyal to the Kingdom over fears that U.S. President Donald Trump’s peace plan, expected to be announced after April’s Israeli parliamentary election, would marginalize the Jordanian role on the Mount.

“By defiance to Z.O.G. Ilhan Omar is NOW the most important Member of the US Congress!” Duke wrote on his site, using the acronym for “Zionist Occupation Government.” This anti-Semitic term refers to the fictitious claim that the U.S. government is secretly controlled by Jews.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan attacked Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday, calling him a “murderer who oppresses the Palestinian nation.” Erdogan made his comments in the context of recent tensions on the Temple Mount.
On Tuesday, Israel closed the Temple Mount after Palestinians firebombed an Israeli police post on the site. One policeman was lightly injured from smoke inhalation. The Temple Mount was reopened on Wednesday. Tension remains high.

Pipko, who serves as spokesperson for the group “Jexodus,” which bills itself as speaking for “Jewish Millennials tired of living in bondage to leftist politics,” saw her comments amplified by Trump on Twitter. “There is anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party,” she continued. “They don’t care about Israel or the Jewish people.”
Trump mentioned Pipko in a tweet, saying “‘Jewish people are leaving the Democratic Party. We saw a lot of anti Israel policies start under the Obama Administration, and it got worsts [sic] & worse.

IDF exposes secret Hezbollah terror cell on Israel-Syria border

The IDF announced Wednesday it discovered a new Hezbollah cell just over the border in the Syrian-controlled portion of the Golan Heights.
By World Israel News Staff
According to IDF intelligence, Hezbollah is marshaling a terror cell just across the Israeli border in a Druze village in Syria called Khader. Statements issued by the IDF maintain that the Hezbollah operatives set up the cell and its infrastructure behind the back of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
In a video posted to Twitter, Israeli officer Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus said that the cell is “masterminded by Hezbollah” but staffed by Syrians, using “local civilian infrastructure as observation points, collecting intelligence against Israeli targets.”
“The main guy behind [the terror cell] is a known terrorist named Ali Musa Daqduq,” he said.
The officer explained that Daqduq was “responsible for the abduction and execution of five American servicemen” in 2007 in Iraq, where he was imprisoned but was later released in a prisoner swap and returned to Lebanon and Syria.
Daqduq is a wanted man in the United States for these attacks and was described by the U.S. Treasury Department as “commander of a Hezbollah special forces unit and chief of a protective detail for Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah.”
Lt. Col. Conricus also addressed the terror group and its leaders directly, warning, “We’re not going to allow Hezbollah to establish a terror infrastructure [in] the Golan capable of striking Israeli civilians.”
He also declared that Israel holds the Syrian regime responsible for any hostilities emanating from its territory, demanding that the Assad regime adhere to the 1974 agreement that officially ended the Yom Kippur War and was supposed to shut down the Syrian front.

Peace will not be made on the White House lawn, but in Ramallah, Jerusalem and Gaza. Anything else is wishful thinking.
By Hillel Frisch, BESA Center
President Donald Trump and numerous U.S. officials have all warned that both sides of the forthcoming “agreement of the century” are going to be asked to make painful concessions.
To reduce resistance to those concessions on the Israeli side, U.S. officials and envoys like Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt are offering Israel the prospect of peace with Arab states as bait. This idea has numerous supporters among Israeli politicians, think tanks, and academics who invoke the Arab Peace Plan of 2002 as the basis for such a solution.

‘Because she was a Jew’: Teen’s killer indicted for murder

‘Because she was a Jew’: Teen’s killer indicted for murderArafat Irfaiya, charged with the murder of 19-year-old Ori Ansbacher is brought to the Jerusalem District court, March 7, 2019. (Flash90/Yonatan Sindel)
The Arab terrorist who raped and killed 19-year-old Ori Ansbacher was indicted for murder in Jerusalem District Court on Thursday.
By World Israel News Staff
Arafat Irfayia, the prime suspect in the killing of Jewish teenager Ori Ansbacher, was indicted for murder in the Jerusalem District Court on Thursday. It was a month to the day that Ansbacher was killed in a wooded nature reserve on the outskirts of Jerusalem.
Ansbacher, 19, a nature lover, had gone to the area to be alone and write in the Ein Yael reserve when Irfayia came upon her and decided to kill her with his knife. Ansbacher struggled with the defendant, the indictment says.
Irfayia, 29, was indicted for an act of premeditated murder, rape and illegal entry into Israel.

The terrorist earlier had reconstructed the killing for Israel investigators. He says he left his home in Hebron with the express intention of killing a Jew. He had bought a skullcap two weeks earlier, he told investigators “so that I could enter Israel without being suspected, and not be recognized that I’m an illegal resident.”
When Irfayia saw Ansbacher, he said in Arabic, “I am an Arab.” After he saw that she didn’t understand him, he decided to rape and kill her. Irfayia says he stabbed Ansbacher three times with the knife he had brought with him and dragged her a distance of about 150 meters. She shouted, but in the deserted forest no one could hear her. Then he stabbed her a few more times, stuffed her mouth with her shawl, and tied her hands with her belt.
After raping her, he then took her cell phone and fled the scene. During his flight, Arfaia took the memory card from the phone and threw it under a rock. He then traveled to the Palestinian Authority in a taxi, where he was captured by Israel’s Yamam, or counter-terrorism unit.

The majority of Americans remain partial toward Israel in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, with 59 percent saying they sympathize more with the Israelis whereas 21 percent sympathize more with the Palestinians, according to a Gallup poll.
However, while still widespread, sympathy toward Israel is down from 64 percent in 2018 and marks the lowest percentage favoring Israel since 2009, says Gallup.
Meanwhile, the 21 percent sympathizing more with the Palestinians, statistically unchanged from a year ago, is the highest by one point in Gallup’s trend since 2001.

House Democrats on Wednesday postponed indefinitely a vote on a resolution condemning anti-Semitism after a contentious meeting in which some new members confronted leaders over their push to rebuke Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota.
In the party’s weekly closed meeting, Democrats protested the way Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other leaders tried to rush out a resolution this week responding to Omar’s latest remark about Israel. Omar last week suggested the Jewish state’s supporters are pushing lawmakers to pledge “allegiance” to a foreign country.

Syria: We will attack Israel unless it withdraws from the GolanSyrian President Bashar Assad (AP)
Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad issued the warning to a U.N. official as Damascus fears U.S. recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.
By World Israel News Staff
Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad reportedly warned Kristin Lund, head of the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization (UNTSO), that “Syria will attack Israel if it does not leave the Golan Heights.”
“We will not hesitate to confront Israel,” Mekdad said. “We are also not scared away by its [Israel’s] supporters who are helping to perpetuate the occupation of the Golan,” he added.
The Syrian official accused Israel of using violence and harming regional stability.
The message has been interpreted as a sign that Syria is concerned that the U.S. will recognize Israel’s sovereignty on the Golan Heights.
Senators Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas), and Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-Wisconsin) introduced legislation last week urging the United States to officially recognize Israel’s sovereignty. The IDF captured the territory in the 1967 war. In 1981, the Knesset passed legislation applying Israeli law on the Golan.

While balloons, kites, drones, and even a live falcon have been used by Palestinian rioters to send incendiary devices into Israel, the incident on Saturday represents the first time they sent an anti-tank missile warhead into Israeli territory.

After the House of Representatives on Thursday passed a resolution condemning anti-Semitism amid a number of other forms of bigotry, but failed to specifically mention Democratic Rep. lIhan Omar’s anti-Semitic comments, President Donald Trump told reporters Friday the Democrats have become an “anti-Israel” and “anti-Jewish” party.
Democrats wrestled for days about whether or how to punish Omar, a freshman from Minnesota who has been dogged by accusations of anti-Semitism since she accused “evil” Israel of “hypnotiz[ing] the world” in 2012.

By David Isaac, World Israel News
A tempest in a teapot is the best way to describe the political dustup over the possible entry of a single follower of the late Rabbi Meir Kahane into the Knesset. One would think, with all the hand-wringing from the American Jewish community (supported by much of the Israeli press), that within weeks there’ll be a Knesset fire followed by the suspension of  civil liberties.
The piling on of left-wing organizations like ADL, the Democratic Majority for Israel, the Jewish Democratic Council of America, the Israel Policy Forum, the rabbinic group T’ruah and the Union for Reform Judaism (its president, Rabbi Rick Jacobs, said allowing a member of the Otzma Yehudit Party into the Knesset was “the equivalent in the United States of the KKK being welcomed into the corridors of power”) was to be expected.

Pro-BDS Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib accused of taking illegal campaign funds

Pro-BDS Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib accused of taking illegal campaign fundsRep. Rashida Tlaib (AP /Alex Brandon)
The anti-Israel congresswoman is said to have paid herself from campaign finances even after election day, in contravention of campaign spending regulations.
By World Israel News Staff
U.S. Democratic representative Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) paid herself tens of thousands of dollars from her campaign’s funds during the November 2018 midterm election, says the Washingon Free Beacon, citing filings of the Federal Election Commission (FEC).
Tlaib, who was elected to the House last November, began paying herself on May 7, 2018, from “Rashida Tlaib for Congress,” her campaign committee.
Tlaib legally paid herself $45,500 in campaign funds as she campaigned to become a congresswoman, Fox News reported.
But the payments could be an issue because candidates are only allowed to pay themselves until Election Day.
The congresswoman took only $28,000 in salary, which falls within the guidelines. However, she also paid herself $17,500 after Election Day, which appears to be a campaign finance violation. The FEC states that candidates are permitted to pay themselves during the campaign to provide for living expenses.

The United States is expected to move ahead with the downgrade of its mission to the Palestinians on Monday by merging its Jerusalem consulate with the embassy in Israel, a U.S. official said Saturday.
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said, when announcing the merger in October, that it was intended to improve “efficiency and effectiveness” and did not constitute a change in policy, though Palestinian leaders have seen the decision as another move against them by the Trump administration. The Palestinian Authority (PA) froze contacts with the U.S. after President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in 2017.

Rep. Omar is under fire for repeating her claim that U.S. politicians must pledge allegiance to Israel.
By World Israel News Staff
Rep. Ilhan Omar is once more causing a stir after a Tweet on Sunday in which she suggested that U.S. politicians were being forced to “pledge allegiance” to Israel, The New York Post reports.
In her tweet, the Minnesota Democrat said, “I should not be expected to have allegiance/pledge support to a foreign country in order to serve my country in Congress or serve on committee.”
Omar was responding to a tweet from fellow Democrat and New York Congresswoman Nita Lowey.
Lowey, a strong supporter of Israel, had tweeted, “Lawmakers must be able to debate w/o prejudice or bigotry. I am saddened that Rep. Omar continues to mischaracterize support for Israel. I urge her to retract this statement and engage in further dialogue with the Jewish community on why these comments are so hurtful.”
Lowey was referring to earlier comments Omar had made in which she accused pro-Israel lawmakers of promoting foreign allegiances, during an event at a book store in Washington, D.C.
“I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is okay for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country,” Omar said at that meeting.
“No member of Congress is asked to swear allegiance to another country,” Lowey tweeted. “Throughout history, Jews have been accused of dual loyalty, leading to discrimination and violence, which is why these accusations are so hurtful.”

The list remains unchanged in the top nine, led by the U.S. and Russia, and with Israel followed by Saudi Arabia
By World Israel News Staff
Israel is ranked eighth in the “2019 Power Countries” ranking, published by U.S. News and World Report.
The Jewish State follows the U.S., China, Russia, Germany, the U.K., France, and Japan.  The ranking is based on five attributes: each country’s leadership, economic influence, political influence, strong international alliances, and military. 
It explains that “the world’s most powerful countries also are the ones that consistently dominate news headlines, preoccupy policymakers, and shape global economic patterns. Their foreign policies and military budgets are tracked religiously. When they make a pledge, at least some in the international community trust they will keep it,” says U.S. News and World Report.
About Israel, the report says that “for its relatively small size, the country has played a large role in global affairs. The country has a strong economy, landmarks of significance to several religions, and strained relationships with many of its Arab neighbors.”
The description contrasts Israel’s diplomatic struggles with its prowess in a number of areas.
“Seven decades later, boundaries are still hotly contested. The United Nations Security Council voted in 2016 to condemn Israeli settlements in the area, prompting Israel to suspend ties with many nations that voted in favor of the resolution. U.S. President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital at the end of 2017 stirred further unrest,” says the review.

By TPS and World Israel News Staff
Arab terrorists rammed their car into a group of IDF soldiers operating in the Arab village of Ne’ima around 3:30 a.m. on Monday morning, seriously wounding an officer and lightly injuring another soldier.
In response, the troops fired at the terrorists, killing two of them and lightly injuring anothe
The soldiers had been conducted raids in the village of Ne’ima and were on their way out when their truck broke down. As they stood outside attempting to move the vehicle, they were attacked.
“Terrorists rammed their vehicle into a number of soldiers who had stopped by the side of the road at the entrance to the village,” the Israel Defense Forces said.
The seriously wounded officer, later identified as Capt. Israel Meir Elitzur, was evacuated in stable condition after being anesthetized and ventilated. A doctor treating him stated that he was not in a life-threatening condition and that he was undergoing an operation.
The lightly wounded soldier was evacuated with injuries to his legs.
Both injured soldiers, about 20 years of age, were taken to Tel Hashomer hospital in Ramat Gan on the outskirts of Tel Aviv.
Dozens of Arabs gathered at the scene of the attack later that morning and began rioting, throwing rocks and other objects at IDF forces.

Naftali Bennett charges that Prime Minister Netanyahu is too soft on terrorists. 
By David Jablinowitz, World Israel News
New Right party leader Naftali Bennett took to social media Monday in the aftermath of a car-ramming attack in which an Israeli soldier was seriously hurt, demanding that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu act swiftly against terrorists.
The prime minister himself posted on Twitter Monday morning, saying that he had demanded an accelerated process towards demolishing the homes of the terrorists involved in the early morning attack.
Home demolitions are meant as a deterrent towards discouraging other would-be terrorists from carrying out attacks. However, they have faced court battles, and the Palestinian Authority is said to offer reconstruction if not upgraded housing to the families.
In response to Netanyahu’s statement, Bennett tweeted to his followers: “Remember that after the horrific murder of Ori Ansbacher, of blessed memory, Netanyahu dispatched people to ‘measure the home of the terrorist in order to demolish it,’ and he issued a series of strong statements to the media? Well, to this very moment, Netanyahu has not issued an order to demolish the murderer’s home. You’ve heard correctly.”
Earlier in the morning, Bennett tweeted: “Stop being afraid of the terrorists already, Mr. Netanyahu. The terrorists are threatening to get annoyed if you take away their illegal cellphones in jail, so we give in?
“What are you waiting for, honorable defense minister and prime minister? Block it from them today already,” urged Bennett, referring to the fact that Netanyahu has also held the defense portfolio since November when Avigdor Liberman resigned.

On Monday, the U.S. State Department announced it was closing its consulate in Jerusalem, folding it into the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem.
By Associated Press
The United States has officially shuttered its consulate in Jerusalem, downgrading the status of its main diplomatic mission to the Palestinians by folding it into the U.S. Embassy to Israel.
For decades, the consulate functioned as a de facto embassy to the Palestinians. Now, that outreach will be handled by a Palestinian affairs unit, under the command of the embassy.
The symbolic shift hands authority over U.S. diplomatic channels with Judea, Samaria and Gaza to ambassador David Friedman, a longtime supporter and fundraiser for the settlement movement and fierce critic of the Palestinian leadership.
The announcement from the State Department came early Monday in Jerusalem, the merger effective that day.
“This decision was driven by our global efforts to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of our diplomatic engagements and operations,” State Department spokesman Robert Palladino said in a statement. “It does not signal a change of U.S. policy on Jerusalem, the West Bank, or the Gaza Strip.”
When first announced by U.S. Secretary Mike Pompeo in October, the move infuriated Palestinians, fueling their suspicions that the U.S. was recognizing Israeli control over east Jerusalem and Judea and Samaria, territories that Palestinians seek for a future state.ORE

“The proposed conference will present the unshakeable alliance between the U.S. and Israel,”  says Marc Zell, chairman of Republicans Overseas Israel.
By Yori Yalon, Israel Hayom via JNS
For the first time, representatives of the Republican Party living outside the United States plan on convening an international conference in Jerusalem.
Marc Zell, an Israeli-American lawyer and the chairman of Republicans Overseas Israel, sent Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Lion a letter saying that, among other things, the conference is expected to focus on diplomatic issues and that organizers intend to invite representatives of the Trump administration.
“This is expected to be the first international conference of its sort, and we can’t think of a better place to hold it than Jerusalem,” Zell wrote in the letter. “The proposed conference will present the unshakeable alliance between the U.S. and Israel.”
Speaking to Israel Hayom, Zell said: “The decision to convene the conference in Jerusalem is a direct continuation of U.S. President Donald Trump’s declaration of recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and moving the U.S. Embassy to [the city], decisions which were greatly appreciated among millions in the United States.
“The date chosen for the conference, in October of 2019, falls near the onset of the U.S. presidential campaign,” for which elections will be held in 2020.
“We’ve received positive initial indicators. We are very hopeful about holding this conference, but it also depends on other factors,” said Zell.
Zell met earlier this week with Lion and Deputy Mayor Haim Cohen, in which Lion expressed a desire to host the conference in the capital.
The international convention comprises representatives of the Republican Party living in 62 countries outside the United States.
“The city of Jerusalem and I would be honored to host the international Republican convention in Jerusalem, the unified capital of Israel,” said Lion. “The United States is an old and true friend and holding the conference for the first time in history within the borders of the State of Israel is truly good tiding.”

Citing ‘summer of hell,’ Jewish Labour movement may end ties with Corbyn’s party

Jewish Labour movement may end century-long affiliation with UK Labour party over anti-Semitism.
By Benjamin Kerstein, The Algemeiner
Great Britain’s Jewish Labour Movement may end its nearly century-long affiliation with the UK Labour party due to Labour’s failure to deal with anti-Semitism in its ranks.
The venerable organization has been connected to the Labour party for 99 years. Its roots lie on the Zionist left, and it began as a branch of the movement that eventually created the Israeli Labor party, which ruled the Jewish state for the first 30 years of its existence.
Sky News quoted  the Jewish Labour Movement’s national secretary, Peter Mason, as saying at a London Labour conference, “It’s been a year since the Jewish community stood outside Parliament Square protesting enough was enough. It’s been a year since the Jewish community laid down six key tests to judge the party against their action in tackling anti-Semitism. And it’s been a year since we set the Jewish Labour Movement 19 key tests.”
“None of those have been met,” he stated, “and instead we have experienced a summer of hell in which the Labour party took upon itself the decision to redefine anti-Semitism and has failed.”
Labour has been wracked by anti-Semitism scandals since far-left MP Jeremy Corbyn became the party’s leader in 2015. Several of the scandals have implicated Corbyn himself, and last month nine MPs left the party and formed an independent faction, citing anti-Semitism as one of the major factors behind their decision.

Anti-Semitic vandals deface memorial to French synagogue destroyed by Nazis

Anti-Semitic vandals deface memorial to French synagogue destroyed by NazisVandalized synagogue memorial in Strasbourg, France.
French police launched an investigation into vandalism of a memorial stone marking the site of a former synagogue destroyed by the Nazis in the eastern city of Strasbourg.
By Associated Press and World Israel News Staff
The prefecture of the Bas-Rhin region said in a statement a heavy memorial stone honoring a synagogue burned to the ground by the Nazis in Strasbourg was discovered moved from its base Saturday morning.
Strasbourg mayor Roland Ries denounced the “new anti-Semitic act.”
“Anti-Semitism undermines the values of the Republic,” the prefecture said.
The monument commemorates a synagogue built in 1898 that was razed by the Nazis in 1940.
The incident comes amid an uptick in anti-Semitic acts in France in recent months. Last month, about 80 gravestones were spray-painted with swastikas in a Jewish cemetery close to Strasbourg.
In addition to traditional perpetrators of anti-Semitic crimes in France, which include neo-Nazis and radical Islamists, the recently-launched “yellow vest” protests have also included an anti-Semitic dimension, including an incident in which French philosopher and son of an Auschwitz survivor Alain Finkielkraut was called a “dirty Jew” by one of the protestors during a vicious verbal attack that resulted in criminal charges being pressed against the perpetrator.

Hezbollah: UK terror ban ‘insults Lebanon’s feelings’

Hezbollah: UK terror ban ‘insults Lebanon’s feelings’Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah (AP/Hassan Ammar)
The terror group on Friday strongly rejected the British government’s move to ban it, calling the move an “insult” to the Lebanese people and evidence of subservience to the United States.
By Associated Press and World Israel News Staff
In a statement issued in Beirut, the Hezbollah terror group responded to a recent ban by the U.K. government, commenting,”The British government by adopting this decision has insulted the feelings, emotions and will of the Lebanese people which consider Hezbollah to be a significant political and popular force and granted it large representation in parliament and in the new government.”
It was the first comment by the terror group on Britain’s move earlier this week to ban Hezbollah as a terrorist group, based on the Iran-backed proxies destabilizing operations the Middle East.
Hezbollah receives hundreds of millions of dollars from Iran, with which it maintains a massive terror army, amassing around 150,000 rockets in violation of the United Nations resolution’s that ended Lebanon’s previous conflict with Israel.

Opinion: Why the Otzma Party is a legitimate political voice
While two-state solutionists plan to kick Jews out for a newly-minted Palestinian state, which sounds like ethnic-cleansing, the same people condemn a party that calls to expel terrorists to protect Jews from jihad.
By Yishai Fleisher, JNS.org
The inclusion of the Kahane-legacy Otzma Yehudit Party into a technical block of the Jewish Home and National Union, and the assistance with the merger by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, has unleashed a furor.
But while I may not be an Otzma voter, it’s not because I think they are illegitimate.

Britain’s decision is a serious setback for the Iran-Hezbollah-Syrian axis to finance its costly expansionist policies in the Middle East. 
By Daniel Krygier, World Israel News
The United Kingdom’s recent decision to outlaw Hezbollah’s so-called political wing could potentially change the dynamic of European-Israeli relations and bring a measure of European moral clarity on terrorism, as well as putting the hurt on the terror group’s ability to raise funds.
The U.K.’s Home Secretary Sajid Javid stressed that the decision to designate all of Hezbollah as a terrorist organization was guided by the need to protect the British people. Mr. Javid also blasted Hezbollah for its role in undermining the Middle East.
“Hezbollah is continuing in its attempts to destabilize the fragile situation in the Middle East – and we are no longer able to distinguish between their already banned military wing and the political party. Because of this, I have taken the decision to proscribe the group in its entirety.”
The redefinition of Hezbollah requires parliamentary approval, which could still be torpedoed by the leftist opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn who has referred to Hezbollah and Hamas as his “friends.”
Hezbollah is designated as a terrorist organization by Canada, the U.S., Israel, the Netherlands and the Arab League. Despite a long history of terrorism since the 1980s, it was only after Hezbollah’s terrorist attack on Israeli tourists in Bulgaria in 2013 that they European Union designated Hezbollah’s military wing as a terrorist organization.
Five Israeli civilians were murdered and 32 were injured during Hezbollah’s terrorist attack at the Burgas airport in Bulgaria. However, the E.U., and its leading member state Germany, still refuse to define all of Hezbollah as an illegal terrorist entity.

By World Israel News staff
If Jews are interested in establishing a Jewish community in Egypt, the government will build synagogues and other communal institutions, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi told a U.S. delegation during a two-hour meeting last week, according to a report in the Jerusalem Post.

The entourage was comprised of members of the Anwar Sadat Congressional Gold Medal Commission that advocated the granting of the U.S. Congressional Gold Medal posthumously to the slain Egyptian president who made peace with Israel, said the newspaper. The delegation traveled to Egypt to invite Sisi to the ceremony in the fall, when the medal will be given to Sadat’s wife, Jehan.

Netanyahu ordered to repay $300,000 in donations for legal defense, clothing

Netanyahu slams the second rejection by a committee in the State Comptroller’s Office and says he will go to the High Court.
By World Israel News staff
The State Comptroller’s Permits Committee on Sunday rejected for the second time a request by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to fund his legal aid team through $2 million in donations from his cousin Nathan Milikowsky and businessman and close associate Spencer Partridge. The prime minister was also ordered to pay back $300,000 in contributions from Milikowsky to his legal defense fund and for business suits given to him by Partridge.
Netanyahu is currently facing three corruption investigations. He has repeatedly stated that he is innocent and a victim of a witchhunt.
After Netanyahu’s first request for permission to have Milikowsky and Partridge cover his legal fees was turned down in December, the prime minister’s legal defense team last month filed an additional request asking to receive a million dollars in the first phase and $2 million later on. Netanyahu also reportedly said he would pay $100,000 out of pocket to help fund his legal defense.
The committee’s decision comes after State Comptroller Yosef Shapira and Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit determined in December that the prime minister was ineligible to receive $2 million in donations from Milikovsky and Partridge to fund his legal fees.
In the cases against him, the prime minister is suspected of receiving benefits from rich benefactors in return for using his offices to advance their interests. In its December decision, the Comptroller’s Permits Committee said it was inappropriate for non-Israeli benefactors to pay for legal defense in a criminal case relating to receiving funds from wealthy benefactors.

Hezbollah is to be totally banned in the U.K. following its classification as a terrorist organization, according to a statement from the British government.
“A draft order, laid in Parliament [Monday], will proscribe Hezbollah in its entirety,” said the government on its website.
“Subject to Parliament’s approval, from Friday when the order comes into effect, being a member [of] or inviting support for Hezbollah…will be a criminal offense, carrying a sentence of up to 10 years’ imprisonment,” it said on its website, gov.uk.
The order also includes Ansaroul Islam and JNIM which operate in the Sahel region in Africa.
“Hezbollah is continuing in its attempts to destabilize the fragile situation in the Middle East, and we are no longer able to distinguish between their already banned military wing and the political party. Because of this, I have taken the decision to proscribe the group in its entirety,” said Home Secretary Sajid Javid.

Yair Lapid and Benny Gantz agreed to run on a joint list in the coming elections, strengthening their chances to overcome Netanyahu’s leadership.
By David Isaac, World Israel News
In the most important development of Israel’s election season so far, two center-left parties, Yesh Atid (“There is a Future”) and Hosen L’Israel (“Israel Resilience”) announced on Thursday that they have formed a united list to compete in the April 9 elections.
The merger enables them to equal, and even surpass, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party in terms of number of seats they’re expected to win, according to polls.
The leaders agreed to lead on a rotational basis should they win the elections. Gantz would become prime minister for the first two years. Lapid would then take over in that role for a year and a half.
The top four in the united list will be Gantz, Lapid, Moshe Yaalon, and Gaby Ashkenazi. Ashkenazi, a former IDF chief-of-staff who was courted by a number of parties, is a newcomer. The revelation that he joined the Gantz-Lapid list was made simultaneously with the merger announcement.

The latest Warsaw-Jerusalem crisis reveals that the complex Polish-Jewish relations are still too often seen through a prism of black and white stereotypes.
While history must not be whitewashed and misrepresented, future Polish-Israeli relations would benefit from mutual respect. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu correctly stated that individual Poles did persecute Jews during the Holocaust, while the new acting foreign minister Israel Katz crossed the line by wrongly demonizing all Poles as a nation of anti-Semites.

Yet virtually invariably when top military figures have departed from their field of expertise (security) and ventured into one where they have none (politics), they have been disastrously wrong.
“The greatest tragedy of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is that everyone knows how it will end. We will divide up the region. Israel will return most of the Judea and Samaria, and the Palestinian flag will fly on public buildings in east Jerusalem… The only unanswered question is: How many more people will have to die along the way? And so we will fight against the extremists on both sides, including our extremists, the settlers.” (Yair Lapid, Der Spiegel, May 8, 2008)
“We should not be disheartened by Assad. Israel has a strategic interest in disassociating Syria from the extremist axis that Iran is leading. Syria is not lost, Assad is Western educated and is not a religious man. He can still join a moderate grouping. – Lt-Gen. (res.) Gabi Ashkenazi, said IDF Chief of Staff (Haaretz, Nov. 13, 2009), the latest recruit for the Gantz-Lapid “Blue & White” front.

“The fact that Gantz feels he needs to join up with Lapid in order to ‘beat’ Netanyahu shows that neither one of them holds a candle to Netanyahu. If you can’t beat Netanyahu on your own, just go home.

Father of British ISIS teen says ‘Revoke her citizenship!’

Father of British ISIS teen says ‘Revoke her citizenship!’
Father’s comments contrast with other family members who ask the British Home Office for help so that Shamima’s newborn child can be raised in safety.
By World Israel News staff
The father of Shamima Begum has told The Mail on Sunday that he backs Home Secretary Sajid Javid’s decision to strip his daughter of her British citizenship.
Speaking to the media for the first time, Ahmed Ali, 60, said: ‘I know they [the British Government] don’t want to take her back, and in this, I don’t have a problem. I know she is stuck there [in Syria] but that’s because she has done actions that made her get stuck like this.”
Ali’s comments are in stark contrast to the pleas of Begum’s British-based relatives who want her to be allowed to return to the U.K.
“I am on the side of the Government,” he said. “I can’t say whether it is right or wrong, but if the law of the land says that it is correct to cancel her citizenship, then I agree.”
Her family in the U.K. wrote to the home secretary, asking for his help to bring Shamima’s newborn son to Britain.
Writing on behalf of the family, her sister Renu Begum said the baby boy was a “true innocent” who should not “lose the privilege of being raised in the safety of this country.”
The family said they have had no contact with Shamima and had only learned that she had given birth to a boy through media reports. They say that they were “shocked and appalled” at the “vile comments” that Shamima had recently made to the media.

Shamima was 15-years-old when she left east London in 2015 with two other schoolgirls on a flight from London to Turkey to join ISIS in Syria. In a recent interview, during her ninth month of pregnancy, she said that she had no regrets, but revealed that she wants to return home to the U.K. for the sake of the baby, fearing it could die in the camp where she has been living. Her two previous children have already died.

She gave birth to her new baby boy last Sunday. Despite her pleas to be allowed back to the U.K., she has drawn outrage by failing to apologize for joining the terror group and arguing that the 2017 bombing of the Manchester Arena by an Islamic extremist was justified.

In an earlier ITV interview, Security Minister Ben Wallace said that he could not “comment on this case exactly for legal reasons, [but] fundamentally it depends on her status as [a] British citizen, whether or not she has a passport,” adding that “if she is a British citizen, she has rights.”

Speaking Thursday evening at Kfar Maccabiah in Ramat Gan, a Tel Aviv suburb, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu cautioned Israelis against voting in the “new, weak left-wing” alliance, headed by former Chief of Staff Benny Gantz and Yesh Atid party leader Yair Lapid, saying the result will be a Palestinian state on Israel’s borders.
The new “Blue and White” alliance will rely on the Arab parties, which seek to destroy the Jewish state, Netanyahu warned.

By Melissa Landa, Algemeiner
For many years, proponents of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel focused their campus efforts on verbal and written calls to boycott Israeli universities and scholars. They also urged everyone on campus to avoid and isolate Jewish students who support Israel.
When Jewish students complained about the verbal assaults, university administrators typically defended the BDS activity, characterizing it as an expression of free speech and acceptable political activity.

To understand contemporary Israel, the Diaspora must ponder how the Palestinians reduced the once-dominant party of government to a position of irrelevance.
By Jonathan S. Tobin, Editor-in-Chief, JNS
Elections in Israel are less than two months away, and so far the campaign has been dominated by two main stories. One is speculation about whether Israel’s Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit will indict Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu prior to the voting. The other is the rise of former Israeli Defense Forces Chief of Staff Benny Gantz and his new centrist party.
But there is another angle to the election that deserves some attention: the virtual collapse of the once-dominant Labor Party and the marginalization of the parties of the left.

Arab ministers defend Israel’s right to attack Iran, downplay Palestinian issue

At a major Mideast summit in Warsaw this week, Arab leaders said the Iranian threat is the region’s most pressing challenge, dismissing the Palestinian issue’s relevance in comparison.
By Associated Press and World Israel News Staff
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office on Thursday released a video of a closed meeting in which senior Gulf Arab officials supported Israel’s right to defend itself, played down the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and described Iran as the greatest threat to regional peace.
The video provided a glimpse into the behind-the-scenes ties the Israeli leader has built with the Arab world, but which are rarely seen in public. The video was recorded on a mobile device and it was not clear who took it. It was removed from Netanyahu’s social media accounts not long after it was posted.
The 25-minute video showed a series of comments made by officials from Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates on a closed panel discussion at a U.S.-sponsored security conference in Warsaw. Some 60 nations participated in the gathering, which was focused heavily on countering Iran’s growing influence in the region.

Hezbollah terror chief fumes over Israel’s ‘open’ ties with Arab states

Arch-terrorist Hassan Nasrallah accused several Gulf states of collaborating with Israel “to conspire against [Iran].”
By World Israel News Staff
Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of the Lebanese Islamic terror group Hezbollah, reacted on Saturday to this week’s Mideast summit in Warsaw, Poland, at which Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu joined counterparts from several Arab nations, the European Union, and the United States.
The conference focused on the growing threat posed by Hezbollah’s biggest benefactor, Iran, which bankrolls a number of terror groups throughout the region, including Hamas in the Gaza Strip. Both Hezbollah and Hamas are sworn to Israel’s destruction.
At the summit in Warsaw, Gulf states such as Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) expressed opinions in alignment with Israel’s position on the Iranian threat to regional stability and peace. The mere fact that these Arab nations participated in a conference with Israel also represented a shift in policy, providing clear evidence of the warming ties between the Jewish state and other nations in the region.
Several representatives of Arab states also expressed support for Israel’s right to defend itself, and acknowledged that the Palestinian issue’s importance has been eclipsed by the need to address Iranian belligerence.
On Saturday, Nasrallah spoke at an annual event honoring the terror group’s “martyrs,” admitting that the Warsaw summit “brought out into the open Israel’s relations with the Gulf states,” Times of Israel reported.
“We knew about normalization between Israel and Oman and the United Arab Emirates, but at the summit we also clearly saw normalization with the Saudis,” he added.
The Hezbollah chief not only attacked Yemen’s foreign minister for sitting next to Netanyahu at the summit, positing that Iran’s proxy war in Yemen “is an Israeli-American war carried out by Saudi Arabia and the UAE,” he also accused the Arab nations at the summit of being “tools in the hands of” Israel and the U.S., reported the Times.

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence made his first Auschwitz visit just a day after he warned other world powers of the genocidal designs harbored by Iran.
By Associated Press
U.S. Vice President Mike Pence visited the memorial site of Auschwitz on Friday along with the Polish president and Jared Kushner, the son-in-law of President Donald Trump, viewing a train car, crematoriums and the hair of victims that make it such a powerful testament to the evil that befell Europe in the last century.
The visit came a day after Pence accused the regime in Tehran of “breathing out murderous threats with the same vile anti-Semitic hatred that animated the Nazis in Europe.”
He also singled out Britain, France, Germany and the European Union as a whole for trying to evade U.S. sanctions on Iran and called on the EU to join the Trump administration in withdrawing from the landmark 2015 nuclear deal with Iran. He made those comments during a conference on the Mideast in Warsaw focused largely on Iran and which Tehran denounced as a hostile act.
Several times during his visit Pence compared the evil of the Nazis to that of Iran today.
He added that “to be there to see the end result of that and understand all that happened there, I think will better prepare us and strengthen the resolve of the free world to oppose that kind of vile hatred and to confront authoritarian threats of our time.”
It was the first visit to Auschwitz for Pence, a conservative Christian, to the site where 1.1 million people were murdered, most of them Jews, during the Nazis’ occupation of Eastern Europe during World War II.
Pence and his wife Karen were joined by Polish President Andrzej Duda and first lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda.

Netanyahu pleads with right to unite or risk losing electionPrime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (AP/Marc Israel Sellem)
If the small right-wing parties do not form a single party, the Likud may not have enough natural partners to form the next government, says Netanyahu.
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
In a meeting Monday night with the leaders of the religious Zionist movement, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that it is critical for the small parties that represent its various facets to unite before the upcoming elections.
They must do so, he insisted, “to save 6-to-7 mandates for the right-wing bloc. We can’t lose these votes.”
The Jewish Home, Otzma LeYisrael, Yachad and National Union parties are currently running separately for the 21st Knesset, to be elected on April 9th. In most polls, none of them are currently passing the 3.25 percent threshold, which would lead to tens of thousands of votes being thrown out.

Trump said that Omar “should be ashamed of herself” for the accusation she had made against AIPAC.
By David Jablinowitz, World Israel News
President Donald Trump said that Freshman Democratic congresswoman Ilhan Omar “should be ashamed of herself” for the accusation she had made against AIPAC. “And I don’t think her apology was adequate,” he added, speaking to reporters aboard the presidential Air Force One jet, according to The Washington Times.
The Minnesota congresswoman apologized for remarks she made on Sunday that conjured up the anti-Semitic trope of  Jews buying power with money, insinuating that the pro-Israel American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) buys off U.S. politicians to support Israel.
Omar said on Monday that “anti-Semitism is real and I am grateful for Jewish allies and colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of anti-Semitic tropes. My intention is never to offend my constituents or Jewish Americans as a whole.”
However, she still insisted that AIPAC held too much power.
However, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) defended comments made by Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib, another Muslim congresswoman who has sharply criticized Israel and – like Omar – called for boycotting the Jewish State.

The recent killing of Israeli teenager Ori Ansbacher in what officials have described as a Palestinian terrorist attack drew increased international condemnation on Monday.
Israeli security officials said 29-year-old Hebron resident Arafat Irfaiya had confessed to the murder, which took place in a forest southwest of Jerusalem on Thursday.
Ansbacher, a national service volunteer and daughter of a rabbi from the community of Tekoa in Judea, was found with multiple stab wounds to her chest.
Investigators are seeking to indict Irfaiya for nationalistically motivated rape and murder. He appeared in the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court court on Monday, where his remand was extended for 10 days.

Omar says that she stands by her charge that lobby groups such as AIPAC are too powerful.
By David Jablinowitz, World Israel News
U.S. Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar of Minnesota “unequivocally” apologized for comments that she made Sunday, which were widely viewed as anti-Semitic in conjuring images of Jews buying power with money. However, she still insisted the pro-Israel lobbying group AIPAC held too much power.
She charged that the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) in Washington was buying off U.S. politicians to support Israel.
It followed criticism by Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s threat to take action against Omar for previous anti-Semitic and anti-Israel remarks that she had made. Omar replied that the minority leader’s warning was “all about the Benjamins baby,” a reference to the $100 bill featuring Benjamin Franklin, and a thinly-veiled accusation that McCarthy was defending Israel in exchange for money.
She later pinpointed AIPAC as the source of the supposed payoffs.
In response to criticism from within her own Democratic Party as well as from Republicans for using “anti-Semitic tropes,” Omar said on Monday that “anti-Semitism is real and I am grateful for Jewish allies and colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of anti-Semitic tropes. My intention is never to offend my constituents or Jewish Americans as a whole.”
The Muslim congresswoman added, “We have to step back and think through criticism, just as I expect people to hear me when others attack me for my identity. This is why I unequivocally apologize.”
However, she did not back off from her charge that AIPAC, as well as other lobby groups, wielded too much power.

French anti-Semitism flourishes as tree honoring murdered Jew cut down

French anti-Semitism flourishes as tree honoring murdered Jew cut downTens of thousands of demonstrators, including ministers and politicians march through Paris, to show their opposition to racism and anti-Semitism after the brutal killing of Ilan Halimi, Feb. 26, 2006. (AP/Jacques Brinon)
France is far from finished with anti-Semitism. The latest outrage involves the destruction of a tree honoring a murdered Jew.
By David Isaac, World Israel News
Vandals chopped down a tree near Paris planted in honor of Ilan Halimi, a French-born Jew who was kidnapped and tortured to death in 2006 by a Muslim gang, Agence France-Presse reported Monday.
The felled tree was discovered on Monday by French municipal workers who were preparing for an annual memorial ceremony this week. Another tree was found partially sawn through.
Halimi was a 23-year-old cellphone salesman who was lured to the gang by a woman working with them. They targeted him because he was Jewish and they believed his family could afford a large ransom. They demanded 450,000 Euros from Halimi’s family, which they couldn’t pay. Halimi was tortured, including being burned, while held captive for nearly a month.

Eventually the gang dumped Halimi, naked and handcuffed, in a suburb south of Paris. He had burns over 80 percent of his body and died not long after being discovered.

By World Israel News staff
Media sources in Syria say that two members of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps were killed and an unspecified number of others were hurt when “Israeli warplanes” launched missiles that targeted an Iranian military base in the Quneitra countryside, on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights.
Syrian regime state-agency SANA said that an “Israeli attack on Quneitra province” caused damage to a hospital when tanks opened fire, and that one of the observation posts in Jebata Al-Khashab, adjacent to the Israeli border, had also been targeted.

By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
The current world champion in judo’s -81kg weight class deliberately lost an important match  in Sunday’s Paris Grand Slam judo tournament, apparently so as not to face his next opponent, an Israeli.
Saeid Mollaei reportedly threw his fight with a Kazakh opponent by feigning an injury. Had he won, he would have had to take on Israel’s Sagi Muki in the semi-final round.

By David Jablinowitz, World Israel News
A joint delegation of Palestinian and Israeli coexistence activists paid a condolence visit on Tuesday to the family of Ori Ansbacher, a 19-year-old Israeli woman who was brutally murdered last week in a forest near Jerusalem in an attack that has been categorized by Israeli security officials as terrorism.
The delegation included some 20 activists from Tag Meir, an organization that aims “to connect different groups in Israeli society in the battle to eradicate racism and violence in Israel” and to “educate for tolerance and empathy.”
Gadi Gvaryahu, Tag Meir’s chairman, headed the delegation, which included Meretz MK Mossi Raz and New Israel Fund CEO Mickey Gitzin.
The Palestinian representation included 10 individuals from Ramallah, Wadi Fuchin, Husan, and Jericho.
One member of the delegation, a Muslim sheikh, said: “I, and many other Palestinians, are devastated by this murder and strongly condemn it. It is unacceptable to us. It is against our law and our religion.”
The group, which visited the family’s home in Tekoa, also brought many letters of condolence said to have been written by Palestinians.

Netanyahu expressed his irritation at not being allowed to publish photographs of himself with IDF soldiers during the election campaign, despite being defense minister. 
By World Israel News Staff
On Tuesday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has been serving as defense minister since Avigdor Liberman vacated the position, expressed his disapproval of the attorney general’s legal opinion that he can’t publish photos of himself with Israeli soldiers during the election campaign.
Netanyahu made his views known in a video he posted on Twitter while heading to visit IDF soldiers at a naval base in Haifa. In the video he says to the viewers:

Jewish Home party sets sights on former senior Netanyahu adviser

A former Netanyahu adviser is the leading contender for a top spot in the Jewish Home party list. 
By World Israel News Staff
Perach Lerner, who served as senior adviser to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office, is a leading candidate for the No. 3 spot reserved for women on the list of the Jewish Home party, Maariv reports.
The Jewish Home party was left in tatters after being abandoned by its central leaders, Naftali Bennett and Ayelet Shaked, who served as education and justice ministers respectively in Netanyahu’s government.
Since then, the party has been working feverishly to reassemble its party’s list ahead of the April 9 Knesset elections. The party recently appointed Rabbi Rafi Peretz as party chairman. MKs Moti Yogev and Rabbi Eli Ben Dahan were given seats No. 2 and No. 4 on the list. Slot No. 3 is reserved for a woman.
Maariv reports that Lerner is the favorite for the position and a final decision is expected soon.
Reserving spots for women on party lists is a common practice in Israel in order to broaden support and show inclusiveness.
Lerner served as a senior adviser to Netanyahu for six years, until she was forced out as part of an arrangement with the State Attorney’s Office, accused of exploiting her position to advance her husband’s public relations business, the newspaper says.

By David Jablinowitz, World Israel News
A number of  Likud MKs have petitioned the party’s legal body over whether Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the party chairman, should have the right to add three candidates of his own choosing to the Likud list running in the upcoming Knesset election, scheduled for April 9th.
Last Tuesday, the Likud held a party primary, and while Netanyahu said that he was “very, very” satisfied with the list produced by party voters, some of the candidates have expressed dismay over their own showing.

A new survey shows Netanyahu and the Likud party will be in a better position to form a government even if the center-left parties form a single bloc.
By David Isaac, World Israel News
Even if the opposition parties unite, the Likud party will still be better-positioned to form a governing coalition, according to a new poll published by Israel’s Channel 12 on Saturday.
The poll follows similar ones published in the weekend editions of newspapers Makor Rishon and Israel Hayom that suggest the left-wing and center-left parties will be in a tough position to put together enough seats after the April 9 elections to meet the 61-seat minimum majority in Israel’s parliament.
The survey found that if the three major opposition leaders combined – Benny Gantz (Israel Resilience), Yair Lapid (Yesh Atid) and Avi Gabbay (Labor) – they would in fact garner more seats (36) than Likud (32).
However, they wouldn’t be able to find enough coalition partners to get to 61. According to the poll, a center-left bloc would take 46 votes while a right-wing bloc would reach 49. An Arab bloc would receive 12 seats and an ultra-Orthodox Jewish bloc 13.

Jewish model and Trump supporter called ‘Nazi’ on social media

Elizabeth Pipko, a Jewish model, is now being constantly harassed on social media after revealing her support for Trump. 
By David Isaac, World Israel News 
A 23-year-old model was a secret Donald Trump supporter until recently.
But it didn’t take long for invective to flow her way after she revealed last month that she had worked full-time on the president’s 2016 campaign. “She’s now on the receiving end of constant insults, including being called a ‘Nazi,'” The Daily Wire reports.
Elizabeth Pipko, who is Jewish, started out as a volunteer on Trump’s campaign before being hired full-time.
“I worked in a call center in Trump Tower. Within eight weeks, I was hired as a national volunteer services coordinator for the data team and paid $4,000 a month,” she told The New York Post in January, revealing for the first time that she supported Trump.
Pipko had hid her Trump support from her colleagues for fear of putting her modeling career in jeopardy, but she didn’t want to keep it a secret any longer.
The model told the Post that her fears weren’t unfounded. She describes meeting her manager after a 10-hour-day on the Trump campaign.
“He and a colleague were enraged, screaming about how much they hate Trump. My manager kept saying how evil the people who work for him must be and that he would never work with anyone who supported him.
“I was terrified they would find out that I was one of the so-called evil people.
“So I lied and told people I was coaching ice skating — I was a competitive figure skater for seven years — whenever I was really hard at work in Trump Tower.”
“It was clear from the start that, if I wanted to survive in modeling, I couldn’t tell anyone about my new job,” she said.
“But now that it’s been two years since the election, I don’t want to keep silent any longer. Even if that means saying goodbye to modeling forever,” she told The New York Post.

Israeli ministers urge death penalty for Palestinian killer of teenage Jewish girl

Two Israeli ministers called for the death penalty in the killing of 19-year-old Ori Ansbacher.
By David Isaac, World Israel News
On Sunday, Likud minister Gilad Erdan argued that Arafat Irfayia, the terrorist who admitted killing of 19-year-old Israeli Ori Ansbacher, should receive the death penalty given the shocking nature of the death.
Ansbacher, 19, from the town of Tekoa in Judea, five miles south of Bethelem. She was walking in the woods in the Ein Yael nature center when Irfayia spotted her and attacked her, according to his own confession said the Shin Bet, Israel’s internal security service, in a statement released Saturday night.
“The possibility of a death penalty is already on the books,” Gilad Erdan, who serves as public security and strategic affairs minister said in an interview with Israeli news outlet Kan Bet. “If a case where the murderer abused his victim and if we understand that there is no way to rehabilitate him – and in cases like the murder of the Fogel family – the death penalty must be applied.”
Erdan referred to the Fogel family murder – in which five members of the same family, including three children – were murdered in 2011 by two Palestinian cousins from the village of Awarta. The youngest victim, Hadas, a three-month-old baby, was decapitated. The two murderers were not sentenced to death but to five life sentences.
Erdan also said that the attack was clearly a terror attack, and not merely a criminal one.
Irfayia had left his home in Hebron with a knife in order to carry out an attack, according to the Shin Bet. He had previously been arrested for carrying a knife and for being in Israel illegally. Kan Bet reports that his family identifies with the terror group Hamas.

A commuter bus careened to a stop on its side, impaled on a guard rail on the shoulder of a major Israeli highway, killing 2 Israelis and injuring at least 41.
By World Israel News Staff
Israel Police confirmed Sunday morning that a bus overturned near Modiin following a collision with a passenger vehicle.
The bus finally came to a halt on its side, with a section of guard rail piercing its roof.
At least 41 people were injured in the accident, with one person in serious condition and two others confirmed dead, according to first responders from the ZAKA rescue organization.
The bus was traveling on Route 443 at the time of the accident, ferrying passengers to the Tel Aviv suburbs.
The accident occurred when an private vehicle stopped suddenly in front of the bus in order to help an accident in the other lane.
“There was an accident on the opposite lane towards Modiin Illit, and a car was stuck in the concrete wall that separates the two lanes,” one of the witnesses told Channel 12 news. “A car pulled over and the bus was behind it, and the vehicle stopped abruptly, and then the bus stopped quickly, crashed into it, and turned over.”

The Democratic presidential field campaigning in advance of the Granite State’s first-in-the-nation presidential primary will be confronted by some uncomfortable questions about Israel, at least if Senator Elizabeth Warren’s appearance here this weekend is any indication.
Warren, on her first visit to New Hampshire as a declared Democratic presidential candidate, answered a question from a voter who volunteered that two of his best friends from college were Jewish before pivoting to ask Warren what she thought of Israel’s West Bank settlements and “basically an apartheid situation in Palestine now.”

If the past is any way to predict how Jews will respond to this threat, sadly, the vast majority will probably remain indifferent to the ominous political changes now taking place around them.
By Judith Bergman, The Gatestone Institute
Are democracies in trouble?
As someone outside the world’s most powerful democracy, the United States, it is concerning to see how many countries in the West are being transformed. In Europe, free speech continues to be seriously eroded, churches are desecrated, and religious Europeans murdered. 
There are signs that the same transformation is beginning in the United States as well.
International observers have begun asking if the U.S. has a problem. Additionally, according to the Worldwide Threat Assessment of the US Intelligence Community, released on January 29:
“Global jihadists in dozens of groups and countries threaten local and regional US interests, despite having experienced some significant setbacks in recent years, and some of these groups will remain intent on striking the US homeland. Prominent jihadist ideologues and media platforms continue to call for and justify efforts to attack the US homeland.”
The report adds:
“Homegrown violent extremists (HVEs) are likely to present the most acute Sunni terrorist threat to the United States, and HVE activity almost certainly will have societal effects disproportionate to the casualties and damage it causes.”
Late last year, a synagogue in Pittsburgh was attacked. In Ohio, another attack was being planned, “inspired by the mass shooting” in Pittsburgh.
Threats are, of course, directed against Christians as well as Jews.
Abroad, the U.S. is being mocked, and Europe has set up a payment channel to enable trade with Iran that evades U.S. sanctions.

By World Israel News Staff
Russian ambassador to Israel Anatoly Viktorov told Moscow-based news agency TASS that Russia will not relocate its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.
Speculation regarding a potential embassy move was connected primarily to a 2017 statement by Russia’s foreign ministry that Moscow “view[s] West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel,” in addition to the Russian mission in Israel’s decision last year to break from tradition and hold its annual “National Day” festivities in Jerusalem instead of Tel Aviv.

Liberman, who heads the Yisrael Beytenu party, stepped down from his position as head of the defense ministry after butting heads with Netanyahu repeatedly over Israel’s strategy in Gaza, among other issues.

“We need to find a way that we’re not ruling over other people,” said Israel Resilience party leader Benny Gantz, earning the ire of Israel’s right.
By David Isaac, World Israel News
In his first interview since announcing his candidacy for Israeli prime minister, former IDF Chief-of-Staff Benny Gantz, who has emerged as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s main contender in the run-up to the April 9 elections, appeared to support further withdrawals from Judea and Samaria.
“We need to find a way so that we’re not ruling over other people,” Gantz said.
Gantz prefaced his remarks by noting first that Netanyahu supported a similar position. “We — and Bibi said this in his Bar-Ilan speech — are not looking for control over anyone else,” Gantz said, referring to Netanyahu’s June, 2009 speech at Tel Aviv’s Bar-Ilan University, in which he accepted the idea of a Palestinian state existing alongside Israel once certain security conditions are met.
“The main question is a security question. It must ensure the State of Israel in terms of its security,” Gantz, the leader of the new Israel Resilience party, also said in his response, staking a position virtually identical to that of Netanyahu.
This did not prevent Netanyahu and the Likud party from attacking Gantz over the interview. Netanyahu posted on his Facebook page: “We told you: Gantz will set up a left-wing government with the help of a bloc relying on Tibi and the Joint List.” Netanyahu referred to Ahmed Tibi, an Arab Knesset member and the Joint List, a coalition of Arab parties that holds 13 seats in Israel’s parliament.

U.S. official dismisses the importance of Washington serving as an ‘honest broker’ between Israel and the Palestinians.
By David Jablinowitz, World Israel News
The Trump administration does not seem to shy away from being different in how it handles many issues and its policy on the Israeli-Palestinian dispute certainly proves that point.
The most recent example of this is a Times of Israel article, in which a senior U.S. official says that the current White House is not interested in being considered an ‘honest broker’ in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
“The U.S. is a strong ally of Israel. The administration, from the president on down, is not embarrassed to defend Israel where Israel needs to be defended, whether it’s on the Gaza border, on the Hezbollah tunnels, the Syrian border, wherever it is,” the senior official said.
He dismissed the concept of an honest broker as “a vestige of talking points from decades ago.”

The former spy is reportedly angered by Netanyahu’s campaign poster with Trump, claims the prime minister is not helping him move to Israel.
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Jonathan Pollard has told friends that he feels “abandoned” by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, The Jerusalem Post reported Wednesday.
The former American-Israeli spy said he feels hurt after seeing pictures of Likud campaign posters placed throughout the country showing Netanyahu with President Trump, with both smiling widely, the report says. If their friendship is so strong, he wonders, why is he still stuck in New York, prevented from moving to Israel after languishing 30 years in a maximum-security prison?
“The only difference between me and the two soldiers being held in the Gaza Strip is that they are dead and I am alive,” he told his friends, according to the report. “We have all been abandoned.”
“I understand that the Iran deal was important and that Jerusalem was important, but if the relationship is so good then now is the time,” he added.
Both Pollard and his wife Esther are in poor health. He cannot find work due to his parole restrictions and receives no official Israeli aid; their lifestyle is very modest. He must wear a GPS device be home by early evening, and any computer he uses is watched by the authorities.
Netanyahu reportedly requested Pollard’s release in October 2017, after Israel made several goodwill gestures to the Palestinians. Last April, Israeli officials said that Trump was “seriously considering” letting Pollard go, possibly as part of the larger gesture of moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem in May. Nothing happened then, and a formal Israeli request to the Justice Department was also rejected later in the year.

President Donald Trump warned of rising anti-Semitism and honored two Holocaust survivors, one of whom survived the Pittsburgh shooting.
By Joseph Wolkin, World Israel News
President Donald Trump tackled anti-Semitism in the midst of his second State of the Union address.
Not only did the American president underscore America’s strong ties with Israel, but he reunited a Holocaust survivor with an American hero who liberated concentration camps.
“One of the most complex set of challenges we face and have for many years is in the Middle East,” Trump said. “Our approach is based on principled realism — not discredited theories that have failed for decades to yield progress. For this reason, my administration recognized the true capital of Israel — and proudly opened the American Embassy in Jerusalem.”
Trump also attacked Iran for calling for the destruction of the Jewish state. He said America “will not avert our eyes from a regime that chants death to America and threatens genocide against the Jewish people.”
The president spent several moments addressing a rise in anti-Semitism by sharing the story of Timothy Matson, a SWAT team officer who responded to the Pittsburgh Tree of the Life synagogue shooting.
“Just months ago, 11 Jewish-Americans were viciously murdered in an anti-Semitic attack on the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh,” President Trump said. “SWAT officer Timothy Matson raced into the gunfire and was shot seven times chasing down the killer. And he was very successful.”
Trump spoke of the danger of rising anti-Semitism in America.
“We must never ignore the vile poison of anti-Semitism, or those who spread its venomous creed,” he said. “With one voice, we must confront this hatred anywhere and everywhere it occurs.”
He also spoke of Judah Samet, who narrowly missed being caught in the middle of the Pittsburgh attack, arriving minutes late to services and witnessing the shootout from the parking lot. Samet is also a survivor of the Dachau concentration camp.
“Judah says he can still remember the exact moment, nearly 75 years ago, after 10 months in a concentration camp, when he and his family were put on a train, and told they were going to another camp,” Trump said. “Suddenly, the train screeched to a halt. A soldier appeared. Judah’s family braced for the worst. Then, his father cried out with joy, ‘it’s the Americans.'”
Making things more special was that it happened to be Samet’s 81st birthday. When the president made note of that, the entire House chamber broke out into song, singing “Happy Birthday” to the man who narrowly escaped death multiple times.
Another survivor of Dachau, Joshua Kaufman, was also in attendance at the invitation of the president.
Trump said, “He remembers watching through a hole in the wall of a cattle car as American soldiers rolled in with tanks.”

By Josh Hasten, JNS
Many Israelis came to work bleary-eyed on Monday morning, having stayed up all night watching the New England Patriots defeat the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII. While the low-scoring affair certainly wasn’t the most exciting of championship games, that didn’t dampen the jubilation.
As Steve Leibowitz, president and co-founder of the American Football in Israel (AFI) organization, said to JNS, “the Patriots are Israel’s team.”
Leibowitz says that the Patriots became Israel’s favorite NFL franchise thanks to the nearly two-decade old friendship between the AFI and Patriots owner Robert Kraft and his late wife, Myra. The Krafts have been the biggest supporters of football in Israel, assisting in the funding of the construction of a small Jerusalem football stadium in 2000, known as Kraft Family Stadium, near the Machane Yehuda outdoor market, and new Kraft Family Sports Campus on the outskirts of the city, which opened in 2017, boasting the country’s only full-sized regulation football field.

The number of people living in Israeli towns in Judea and Samaria surged at a much faster rate than the overall Israeli population last year, said a group that that gathers precise Jewish population statistics for Judea and Samaria, predicting even more rapid growth thanks to the policies of the Trump administration.
Baruch Gordon, director of West Bank Jewish Population Stats, said the White House has created a much friendlier environment for the Jews living in Judea and Samaria, clearing the way for a surge in construction in the coming years.

British-Jewish historian receives knighthood

British-Jewish historian receives knighthoodBritish Jewish historian Simon Schama (Youtube)
Simon Schama, a historian of art, Britain, France and the Jewish people, was honored for “services to history.”
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
British Jewish historian Simon Schama got an early birthday present Tuesday when he was awarded a knighthood by Prince William at a ceremony in Buckingham Palace.
The honor was given for his “services to history” a week before the historian’s 74th birthday.
Schama has authored 18 books on British, American, French and Dutch history as well as on art, a number of which have garnered prestigious book prizes as well as commercial success. Some have accompanied BBC documentaries that he wrote and presented.
Perhaps the most popular among the series was the 15-part “A History of Britain,” which aired on British TV between 2000 and 2002.
In 2001, he received his first order of chivalry, CBE, (Commander of the Most Excellent of the British Empire), which rewards contributions to the arts as well as to society.
Inspired by story of the Jewish people
Schama also did a five-part documentary, shown in 2013, that covered the 3,000-year history of the Jews. It garnered critical and popular success in England as well as in the United States, where it aired the following year.
In an interview with JTA at the time, he said the project was very important to him on a personal level.
“I knew I had to have a go at this before I died,” he told the news agency, adding that the story of the Jewish people “made me want to be a historian.”
Disturbed by Labour party anti-Semitism
Schama is a Labour Party supporter. In 2017, he penned a letter to Britain’s The Times with prominent Jewish writers Simon Sebag Montefiore and Booker Prize winner Howard Jacobson, decrying the growing anti-Semitism in the party under Jeremy Corbyn.
Schama was born in England to an Ashkenazic mother whose family came from Lithuania and a Sephardic father whose roots were in Turkey. He has bounced back and forth between the U.K. and America during his career, lecturing in such prestigious universities as Cambridge, Oxford, Harvard and Columbia.

Netanyahu’s alleged ‘hit list’ sends Likud into ‘tailspin,’ party sources sayThe revelation of an 'endorsement list' and 'hit list' has sent the Likud into a tailspin, according to sources. (Flash90/Yonatan Sindel)

‘Likud in a tailspin’ read the headline of the front page story in Monday’s Israel Hayom daily paper.
By David Isaac, World Israel News
‘Likud in a tailspin’ read the headline of the front page story in Monday’s Israel Hayom, the country’s most widely read daily. The ‘tailspin’ comes as a result of an earlier report by the paper claiming that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has “compiled an ‘endorsement list’ and a ‘hit list’ for candidates.”
Polls consistently show Netanyahu’s Likud party taking about 30 seats in the 120-seat Israeli parliament in the upcoming April 9 elections. Where Likud politicians land on the list will be decided in Tuesday’s party primaries as 73 candidates compete for a top spot to ensure their entry into the Knesset.
When Israel Hayom listed Netanyahu’s favored candidates, it created a storm. Senior Likud sources told the paper that the publication of the prime minister’s favorites “sent the party into a tailspin.” Everyone in the party is talking about it, the sources said.

Democratic Freshman congresswoman  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) found herself criticized on social media Sunday night after it was discovered that she had spoken with British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who is steeped in controversy and has been accused of rank anti-Semitism by the likes of former U.K. Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks.
On Sunday, Corbyn tweeted: “Great to speak to @AOC on the phone this evening and hear first hand how she’s challenging the status quo.” Corbyn, who shares Ocasio-Cortez’s socialist worldview, also tweeted: “Let’s build a movement across borders to take on the billionaires, polluters and migrant baiters, and support a happier, freer and cleaner planet.”

Julian Edelman was forced to watch only as a spectator as his disappointed New England Patriots teammates trudged off the field a year ago as Super Bowl losers.
Catch after catch in this one, Tom Brady’s favorite wide receiver helped make them winners again.
“It’s pretty surreal,” Edelman said, shaking his head. “Tough times don’t last, tough people do. I preach that, and, I guess you have to live to it.”
Edelman certainly did Sunday night, earning Super Bowl MVP honors with 10 receptions for 141 yards while helping lift the Patriots to a 13-3 victory over the Los Angeles Rams.

Since being elected to the Senate in 2012, Cory Booker’s record on Israel has been mixed at best, sometimes going back and forth on major issues. 
By Jackson Richman, JNS
Democratic New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker announced on Friday that he is entering the 2020 presidential race.
Since being elected to the Senate in 2012 after serving as mayor of Newark, his record on Israel has been mixed at best, and sometimes going back and forth on certain issues.
In 2016, Booker, 49, who represents a state with more than half a million Jews, labeled BDS as an “anti-Jewish movement” and last year co-sponsored the Israel Anti-Boycott Act that would prohibit American businesses from boycotting the Jewish state.
“We’ve seen the alarming rise in anti-Semitism in the United States and across the world in recent years manifest itself in many deeply concerning ways, including in the actions of foreign governments targeting Israel and the Israeli people,” he said.
However, on Tuesday he voted against the Strengthening America’s Security in the Middle East Act—legislation that is a combination of four bills, including one that would enable state and local governments in the United States to fight BDS.
He also posed last August with a sign from a pro-BDS group that read “From Palestine to Mexico. All the walls have got to go,” a motto coined by the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights.

The Belgian State Security Service issued a report saying terrorism is on the rise, but did not consider Islam a cause, blaming instead things like “poor economic conditions.” 
By Judith Bergman, The Gatestone Institute
Belgium, in its well-intended welcome of newcomers from the Middle East, is now facing a persistent terrorist threat and a “wave of jihadism,” according to a new report published by the Belgian State Security Service (VSSE) on November 30.
The main reason for these recent acquisitions, notes the report, is the ongoing Islamic radicalization of inmates in Belgian prisons and the risk of terrorist convicts engaging in terrorist acts once they have served their sentences and are back out on the street.

The Lebanese military has apprehended an American citizen, identified as Colin Emery, in the city of Tyre, after he had crossed the Israeli-Lebanese border, according to Al–Manar, a Lebanese satellite television station affiliated with Hezbollah. Emery is said to be Jewish.
Lebanese social media said that the man was working in “the Zionist entity,” the name given to Israel by such media which do not recognize the Jewish state. In fact, Al-Manar, in its report, referred to the border as Palestinian-Lebanese, even though the area is not disputed internationally as Israeli territory.
He was reported on social media to have been trying “to buy clothes in Tyre.”

By David Jablinowitz, World Israel News
The Trump administration on Wednesday dismissed an Israeli television report on the U.S. president’s peace plan dividing Jerusalem as not accurate and not helpful.
The report, on Channel 13, said the proposal would provide for Jerusalem to be divided, with Israel maintaining sovereignty in west Jerusalem, parts of east Jerusalem and the “holy basin,” including the Old City and its immediate environs. However, it added that the “holy basin” area would be “jointly run” with the Palestinians, Jordan, and possibly other countries.
The plan reportedly would also offer a Palestinian state in 85-90%  of Judea and Samaria, with major settlement blocs to be annexed by Israel. There would also be land swaps according to which the Palestinian state would receive land from within Israel in exchange for territory that Israel would annex in Judea and Samaria.
Referring to the reporter, President Donald Trump’s Special Representative for International Negotiations, Jason Greenblatt, tweeted: “While I respect Barak Ravid, his report on Israel’s Ch. 13 is not accurate. Speculation about the content of the plan is not helpful. Very few people on the planet know what is in it… for now…”

Analysis: Pompeo buries Obama’s Middle East vision
 January 17, 2019

Trump’s secretary of state tells the Muslim world that Obama’s policy produced dire consequences. 
By David Jablinowitz, World Israel News
While President Donald Trump has spent much time and energy acting to undo what he considers to have been the damage done by his predecessor Barack Obama in both domestic and diplomatic affairs, he has just taken that campaign one step further.
Trump dispatched Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to the Middle East with the express objective of telling leaders in that part of the world that the Obama legacy was not only wrong, but is also being undone.
Trump acted most bluntly on the international stage against Obama in May with his announcement of the U.S. withdrawal from the Iran nuclear agreement reached in 2015 between Tehran and six world powers including the Obama administration. Not only did the previous president play a part in reaching this agreement, he considered it a bedrock of his approach to the Muslim world.
During the most recent U.S. presidential election campaign, Trump repeatedly referred to the nuclear agreement as “the worst deal ever,” and he did not soften his approach after entering the White House in January 2017.
In sending Pompeo to the Middle East, Trump was taking the Obama legacy back to square one.
Square one was in Cairo. That’s where a newly-elected President Obama spoke in 2009 to a university audience, but ultimately to the Muslim world, and in particular, the countries with which Washington did not have close ties. It was eight years after the 9-11 terror attacks, and the new president believed that the time was right to relay the message that Americans do not think that all Muslims are terrorists.
President Trump is not saying that all Muslims are terrorists, to the contrary. The president is exploiting the Iranian desire for greater hegemony and the fears that it instills in other Muslim countries to build up an alliance against Iran, a Muslim alliance that includes countries which have been as outspoken, if not even more opposed, to the Iran nuclear deal than Israel was.
Therefore, not coincidentally, Secretary Pompeo delivered a major address in his just-completed Middle East tour in Cairo, the same major Arab capital where Obama had spoken, though not at Cairo University, but at the American University auditorium.
The different venue might have been coincidental, but even if it was, it suited the Pompeo message. The secretary of state told the audience that Obama’s message had been that “radical Islamist terrorism does not stem from an ideology” and that “9/11 led [the U.S.] to abandon its ideals.”
In the 2019 rebuttal to 2009, Pompeo argued that Obama was guilty of seeing the United States “as a force for what ails the Middle East,” and that the previous president’s approach produced dire consequences. The current secretary of state was trying to say that the U.S. now is a leader and not a follower.
The top U.S. diplomat was able to make such pronouncements in a Muslim country because of those fears of Iran in countries like Egypt, just as President Trump was able to move the American Embassy to Jerusalem with barely a pin drop of condemnation from the Arab world because he had announced a withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal a week earlier.
President Obama tried to embrace the Islamic world. President Trump has distinguished between the good guys and the bad guys, which he can do because these countries do the same thing among themselves.

Mossad agents who stole Iran’s nuclear files nearly captured in Tehran
 January 16, 2019

https://worldisraelnews.com/mossad-agents-who-stole-nuclear-files-were-nearly-captured-in-tehran/?By World Israel News Staff

Mossad operatives, who made off with 55,000 documents exposing Iran’s secret plans to develop atomic warheads for their ballistic missiles, were nearly caught, Hadashot News reported Tuesday.

Another revelation in the report is that President Donald Trump was notified about the complex and dangerous operation ahead of time. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told him about it when they met at Davos, Switzerland.

According to Hadashot, Israel briefed the U.S. about the operation in order to obtain its backing should things go south during its implementation.

The stunning intelligence operation netted a total of 110,000 documents (half in digital form on compact discs). The Mossad lifted the information, weighing half-a-ton, by working between guard shifts and through the night at the “dilapidated warehouse” where they were being held and then spiriting them out of the country in a single night.

“The nuclear deal is based on lies. It’s based on Iranian lies and Iranian deception,” Netanyahu said, revealing key elements from the secret documents in a televised presentation from the Defense Ministry in Tel Aviv on April 30.

Netanyahu stood in front of a large screen with images projected behind him. Next to the screen was a bookshelf containing file binders and next to that a display case with CDs.

Just over a week later, Trump announced he was exiting the Iran deal. Trump referred to the evidence obtained by Israel in his address declaring his intention to put a stop to a deal he said he intended to leave while still on the campaign trail.

The U.S. State Department has confirmed the identity of the American citizen who was killed in the terror attack in Nairobi, Kenya on Tuesday, and his family said that he was a survivor of the attacks on the U.S. on September 11, 2001.
Jason Spindler, a member of the American Jewish community and CEO of a consulting company, was killed in the attack Tuesday, while working at an office inside the hotel complex, according to the Washington Post. He was in a meeting when terrorists burst into the office and opened fire.
Jason’s mother, Sarah Sandler, told NBC News that her son “was trying to make positive change in the third world in emerging markets.”
His brother, Jonathan, also confirmed the family’s tragedy via Facebook.
“It is with a heavy heart that I have to report that my brother, Jason Spindler passed away this morning during a terror attack in Nairobi, Kenya. Jason was a survivor of 9-11 and a fighter. I am sure he gave them hell!” Jonathan’s post read.
Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta confirmed Wednesday morning that the attack on a hotel complex in Nairobi was over, following 12 hours of carnage.

Three Italian policemen, suspected of being part of an Israeli undercover unit, were released Tuesday night after being held by Hamas for 24 hours.
The men, part of a diplomatic team that arrived in Gaza for security preparations ahead of a visit to the Gaza Strip by Italian Ambassador to Israel Gianluigi Benedetti, reportedly drove through a checkpoint, prompting Hamas forces to give chase.
The men took refuge in the United Nations office in Gaza. Hamas cordoned off the building and questioned the suspects, after which they were satisfied that the three were indeed Italian citizens and not Israelis.
“Investigations enabled us to ascertain the identity of the three Italians as well as the security of the procedures for their entrance into Gaza,” Hamas’s interior minister said, according to the ANSAmed news agency.

Iran will maintain its military forces in Syria, Iran’s top military commander declared in defiance of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s warnings to “get out of there fast.”
“The Islamic Republic of Iran will keep its military advisers, revolutionary forces and its weapons in Syria,” Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari, the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps top commander, stated, according to the semi-official ISNA news agency.
On Sunday, Netanyahu acknowledged Syrian reports of IDF bombings over the weekend. “Just in the last 36 hours, the Israeli Air Force attacked Iranian warehouses with Iranian weapons at the international airport in Damascus,” he confirmed.
At the ceremony Tuesday for incoming IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi, Netanyahu discussed the “main factor facing us: Iran and its terror proxies. We acted responsibly and with discretion to stop those who seek to harm us from growing stronger.”
Referring to Iran’s entrenchment in Syria, he said: “I’m telling you, get out of there fast. We won’t stop attacking.”

It remains unclear what motivated him to cross into Lebanon.

Messianic leaders sound the alarm regarding Andy Stanley’s dangerous theology

Messianic leaders sound the alarm regarding Andy Stanley’s dangerous theology
(CBN News) – A trio of Messianic Jewish leaders in the Atlanta area is the latest to publicly sound alarms concerning the “replacement theology” teachings about Christians and the Old Testament by Andy Stanley, pastor of North Point, the nation’s second largest church. In his latest controversial comments about Christians moving away from the Ten Commandments, Stanley said, “The new covenant replaced the old one. The covenant established by Jesus retired the covenant God established with the nation of

Israel.” Stanley sparked controversy last year when he preached a sermon series calling on Christians to “unhitch” their faith from the Old Testament. That sounded, to many believers, Jewish and Gentile, like a form of replacement theology—the idea that the Church has replaced biblical Israel and that God’s promises to Israel as a nation and the Jews as a people are essentially over. At the time, Stanley said his words had been taken out of context.

By David Isaac, World Israel News
In an interview on Wednesday with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, recently elected Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar defended a 2012 tweet in which she said that Israel had “hypnotized the world.”
“I remember when that was happening watching TV and really feeling as if no other life was being impacted in this war,” Omar told CNN’s Amanpour, referring to Operation Pillar of Defense, Israel’s November 2012 incursion into Gaza in response to a number of aggressive actions by Hamas, including the launching of over 100 rockets on Israeli civilians.
“Those unfortunate words were the only words I could think about expressing at that moment,” Omar said. “What is really important to me is that people recognize that there is a difference between criticizing a military action by a government that that has exercised really oppressive policies and being offensive or attacking to particular people of faith.”

Over the weekend, Netanyahu will visit the African nation to renew diplomatic ties after a nearly five decade interruption.
By World Israel News Staff
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is scheduled to fly on Saturday night to Chad, a Muslim-majority nation in northern Africa that broke off ties with the Jewish state 47 years ago.
Netanyahu will stay for one day in the nation’s capital, N’Djamena, where he will meet with Chad’s President Idriss Déby to make an official declaration regarding the reestablishment of diplomatic relations.
The trip follows a surprise visit by Déby to Israel in November during which he commented, “The relations between our countries were cut in 1972 for specific historic reasons, but our special relations continued all the time.”
During that visit Déby signaled his desire to renew relations with Israel, with leaders from both countries acknowledging that covert lines of communication remained open despite the cessation of official diplomatic ties.

Trump’s secretary of state tells the Muslim world that Obama’s policy produced dire consequences. 
By David Jablinowitz, World Israel News
While President Donald Trump has spent much time and energy acting to undo what he considers to have been the damage done by his predecessor Barack Obama in both domestic and diplomatic affairs, he has just taken that campaign one step further.
Trump dispatched Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to the Middle East with the express objective of telling leaders in that part of the world that the Obama legacy was not only wrong, but is also being undone.
Trump acted most bluntly on the international stage against Obama in May with his announcement of the U.S. withdrawal from the Iran nuclear agreement reached in 2015 between Tehran and six world powers including the Obama administration. Not only did the previous president play a part in reaching this agreement, he considered it a bedrock of his approach to the Muslim world.
During the most recent U.S. presidential election campaign, Trump repeatedly referred to the nuclear agreement as “the worst deal ever,” and he did not soften his approach after entering the White House in January 2017.
n sending Pompeo to the Middle East, Trump was taking the Obama legacy back to square one.
Square one was in Cairo. That’s where a newly-elected President Obama spoke in 2009 to a university audience, but ultimately to the Muslim world, and in particular, the countries with which Washington did not have close ties.

The government initiative is considered a positive reform because at least now, the divorced woman will be informed of her status. 
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
n a revolutionary step taken last week, the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Justice announced that female citizens whose husbands have divorced them will now receive “marital status updates” via text message. They will receive the divorce certificate number and be told in which court they could receive the relevant documents.
They will even be able to seek their marital status on a website.
This is no mere gesture on the part of the strictly Islamic government, as Sharia law allows a man to end his marriage contract by just saying the word “tallaq” (divorce) three times before a court, without the woman present or represented and even without her knowledge. At least now they will find out what happened, albeit after the fact.

If the First Amendment’s protections don’t apply to Catholics and conservative Christians, when push comes to shove, they won’t be there to shelter Jews either.
By Jonathan S. Tobin, Editor-in-Chief, JNS
On New Year’s Day, a law banning Jewish religious slaughter went into effect in the Flanders region of Belgium. But as far as the legislators who passed the legislation and the voters who support them, this abridgement of the religious freedom of the Jews of Antwerp is a small price to pay in exchange for a measure that they think is kinder to animals.
Like efforts to make it harder for Jews to observe their religious traditions elsewhere in Europe—a list that includes not only attacks on kashrut, but also efforts to ban circumcision—there’s little doubt that anti-Semitism can be blamed for the enthusiasm for such initiatives. But the response from supporters of laws that take aim at kosher slaughter or other practices that fashionable European opinion deems beyond the pale is that unenlightened behavior doesn’t deserve protection.
Flemish legislators take the position that if Jews want to practice their religion they can do so, but only in such a manner that doesn’t impinge on the majority’s ideas about how to behave.
That’s a standard for religious liberty that you’d think most American Jews and the groups that represent them would be morally bound to oppose. The notion that the majority has the right to tyrannize the minority and to force religious believers either out of the public square or underground is antithetical to both the Constitution of the United States, as well as the principle of support for minority rights that has always guided Jewish community policy.

Police signal that the elderly couple found dead yesterday in their Jerusalem apartment may have been a terror attack.
By David Jablinowitz, World Israel News
Police have reported a breakthrough in the investigation into the killing on Sunday in Jerusalem’s Armon Hanatziv neighborhood of Tamar and Yehuda Kaduri, 68 and 71, respectively.
Details remained sketchy but according to police, speculation is growing that the killing was a terrorist attack. A suspect was brought to the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court Tuesday on suspicion of murdering the couple.
A gag order remained in effect concerning much of the investigation.
Earlier, it was announced that the investigation included looking into a possible connection between the death of the couple and a stabbing on the same street last Wednesday. In that incident, a teenage girl said she was stabbed by a man as she waited at a bus stop to go to school.
Family and friends gathered Monday night to eulogize Tamar and Yehuda as they were laid to rest. The couple is survived by three children.

Named for famed Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel, the new law was passed with overwhelming bipartisan support.
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
President Donald Trump signed into law on Monday an act declaring that the prevention of genocide and other atrocities are “a core national security interest” of the United States as well as “a core moral responsibility”.
The Elie Wiesel Genocide and Atrocities Prevention Act, named for the world-famous Holocaust survivor, author and activist, passed overwhelmingly in both the House of Representatives and the Senate at the end of 2018 after being sponsored by both Democrats and Republicans in each house.
It calls for the State Department to establish a Mass Atrocities Task Force to help it as well as other federal agencies to prevent atrocities from happening and, if they do occur, to assist in responding to the crimes.
On a practical level, the law (S.1158) calls for establishing a Complex Crisis Fund to enable such prevention and response, specifically including the strengthening of local civil society, such as human rights defenders, who are already on the ground working to thwart and/or deal with atrocities as they occur.
It also instructs “appropriate officials of the US government” to consult at least twice a year with representatives of nongovernmental organizations and civil society who are dedicated to this issue in an effort to “enhance the capacity of the US” to identify the conditions that could lead to such crimes.

An Israeli tank crew fell asleep as their vehicle rolled backwards and across a major Israeli highway.
By David Isaac, World Israel News
Disaster was narrowly avoided when a tank crew of a Merkava MK IV fell asleep leaving no one in control as the tank rolled down a hill and crossed Israel’s busy Highway 40. The incident, only made public on Tuesday, occurred some time over the last week.
No one was hurt and no damage was reported, according to the Israel Defense Forces.
The incident took place during an officer’s training course. The tank’s commanding officer left the crew and told them to wait for him. The handbrake was on, says the IDF.
When he returned 20 minutes later, he discovered that his 70-ton armored ride was no longer where he left it. After a search, it was discovered 600 meters away, on the other side of Highway 40.
It quickly became clear that the tank crew had fallen asleep and the tank had rolled backwards without the crew becoming aware of it.
The IDF Spokesperson’s Office reported, “During training which took place as part of a tank officers’ training course in southern Israel, a tank slid down several hundred meters and crossed a road… This is an unusual security incident, which will be investigated with the goal of preventing similar accidents from occurring in the future.”

An Israeli search and rescue group will begin operations in Europe’s Danube River this week to find remains of Holocaust victims.
By Joseph Wolkin, World Israel News
Nearly a year and a half ago, Israel’s Holocaust museum, Yad Vashem, finished a project that identified every Hungarian Jew killed during the Holocaust. Now, Israel is determined to find the remains of those who perished on the banks of the Danube in Budapest, Hungary.
Israel’s ZAKA Search and Rescue organization, a volunteer-based group, will begin diving operations in Europe’s second largest river this week.
ZAKA, known for its global efforts to bring victims of terror attacks and mass casualty incidents to a full Jewish burial, volunteered for the historic task of retrieving and finally burying the bones according to Jewish law.
Interior Minister Aryeh Deri, who is currently in Hungary, said the remains – if found – will be sent over to the Jewish State for a proper burial.
“Over the decades, there have been no attempts to locate and retrieve the bones of the Holocaust victims who fell in their thousands into the river as a result of the mass executions by the Arrow Cross party members,” ZAKA said in a statement.
The Arrow Cross was a far-right party whose ideology was similar to the Nazi Party and which ruled Hungary from October 15, 1944 to March 28, 1945. During its brief rule, it oversaw the murder of 10,000 to 15,000 civilians (many of them Jews and Gypsies).

House Republican leaders removed one of their own, Representative Steve King of Iowa, from the Judiciary and Agriculture Committees on Monday night in the wake of bipartisan condemnation of King’s recent remarks on white supremacy and white nationalism.
In an interview with the New York Times published last week, King said: “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?”
The congressman has been censured before for making racist comments and insulting immigrants, but this time, Republicans have joined Democrats in widely criticizing him.

The forceful request comes as “Palestine” takes over the presidency of the Group of 77, the largest bloc of nations in the U.N.
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Mahmoud Abbas, president of the Palestinian Authority (PA), became 2019’s rotating chairman of the United Nations’ Group of 77 and China on Tuesday.
The Group of 77 was named for the 77 original signatories to a loose alliance of developing countries created in 1964. The main purpose was to defend their economic interests by insisting on equal standing with more advanced countries in the area of international trade as well as to present a united front on other issues of common concern.
Despite its many efforts for full membership, the PA is merely an observer, non-member state of the U.N. To overcome the barrier, the General Assembly called a special vote in October to enable the PA to preside over the Group of 77, which has grown to include over 130 countries.
Presidential spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeineh called the event “an important achievement to assert the Palestinian identity in the international community, which colonial powers have tried to abolish over many centuries,” according to a report in the PA’s Ma’an news agency.
Abbas already took advantage of the upgrade in international status on Monday to meet with U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres. At the meeting, he urged the implementation of recommendations in a report, authored by the U.N. chief last August, calling for an armed U.N. force to protect Palestinians in Israel.

Revelations about strikes on Iranian targets show that Israel has continued to step into the breach left by America’s refusal to act against threats from Tehran.
By Jonathan S. Tobin, editor in chief,  JNS
For some observers, this past weekend’s revelations about Israeli strikes against Iranian targets in Syria was just politics as usual in the Jewish state. Some pundits treated Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s public acknowledgement that the Israel Defense Forces has struck specific Iranian military targets in Syria as an attempt to distract the voters from his personal legal woes in advance of the April elections.
Similarly, there might be those who consider outgoing IDF Chief of Staff Gen. Gadi Eizenkot’s exit interviews with the Israeli and international press in of the same ilk. He, too, spoke about the army’s ongoing duel with Iran’s Quds Force and its Hezbollah auxiliaries in recent years as evidence of his desire to puff up his image before eventually turning (like so many other top officers) to politics.

By Nasser Karimi, Associated Press
Iran on Tuesday conducted one of at least two satellite launches it plans despite criticism from the United States, but the satellite failed to reach orbit, an official said.
The rocket carrying the Payam satellite failed to reach the “necessary speed” in the third stage of its launch, Telecommunications Minister Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi said.
Jahromi said the rocket had successfully passed its first and second stages before developing problems in the third. He did not elaborate on what caused the rocket failure, but promised that Iranian scientists would continue their work.
In Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promptly slammed Iran over the launch, accusing Tehran of lying and alleging that the “innocent satellite” was actually “the first stage of an intercontinental missile” Iran is developing in violation of international agreements.

Muslim Congresswoman Courts Pro-Terror Activist Who Compared Israel to Nazis and ISIS
 https://unitedwithisrael.org/muslim-democrat-meets-with-pro-terror-activist-who-compared-israel-to-nazis-and-isis/?utm_source=pushengage&utm_medium=pushnotification&utm_campaign=pushengage
Rashida Tlaib
Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) met with Abbas Hamideh, a Palestinian activist who glorified child murderer Samir Kuntar as a “legendary Hezbollah martyr.”

By: JNS.org

“I was honored to be at Congresswoman @RashidaTlaib swearing in ceremony in #Detroit and private dinner afterward with the entire family, friends and activists across the country. #Palestine #TweetYourThobe #RashidaTlaib,” tweeted Abbas Hamideh.

Hamideh, executive director of the U.S.-based Palestine Right to Return Coalition, has equated Zionists to Nazis, said Israel has a “delusional ISIS-like ideology” and labeled the nation’s founding a “crime.”

The meeting on Saturday sparked condemnation from the pro-Israel community.

“Unfortunately, we really aren’t surprised. Tlaib is turning out to be the exact person we were warning she is. What is perhaps the worst part about this is, Democrats won’t do a single thing about it, nor will Democratic Jewish groups,” Republican Jewish Coalition spokesperson Neil Strauss told JNS. “And it’s all because they’re afraid to stand up to their rabidly anti-Israel, far-left base.”

However, the Jewish Democratic Council of America slammed Tlaib and Hamideh.

“JDCA stands unequivocally against Abbas Hamideh’s radical record and his extremist anti-Israel views which should be condemned by all,” the organization told JNS. “Since August of last year, JDCA has repeatedly stated our strong policy disagreements with Rep. Rashida Tlaib and we urge her to make clear where she stands with regard to Abbas Hamideh.”

Max Samarov, StandWithUs executive director of Research and Campus Strategy, told JNS: “It is disturbing that a member of Congress would pose with an extremist who glorified child murderer Samir Kuntar as a ‘legendary Hezbollah martyr.’ Political leaders should not associate with racists or supporters of terrorism.”

Christians United for Israel “has decided that we are not going to dignify Rep. Tlaib’s steady drumbeat of appalling statements and actions with a response,” spokesperson Ari Morgenstern told JNS.

Zionist Organization of America president Mort Klein told JNS that his organization “condemns Rashida Tlaib for meeting with a fellow anti-Semite seeking Israel’s destruction, Abbas Hamideh, founder of Al-Awda – The Palestine Right of Return Coalition. This [is] further evidence of her hatred of Jews and the Jewish state of Israel.”

Support for BDS, Lies About Israel
“Tlaib supports BDS and openly calls for the replacement of Israel by an Arab-dominated state, thus seeking to deny Jews the sovereign independence she demands for Palestinian Arabs,” he continued. “She lies about Israel, claiming it discriminates against those ‘darker skinned.’”

“The ZOA urges Democratic Congressional leaders Senator Charles Schumer (D–N.Y.), Speaker of the House Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D–Calif.) and other Democrats to condemn Tlaib for her vicious anti-Israel words and deeds,” he added.

Last week, in response to a bill in the Senate that includes combating the anti-Israel BDS movement, Tlaib attacked Republican lawmakers and opponents of BDS by tweeting: “They forgot what country they represent.”

She continued, “This is the U.S. where boycotting is a right & part of our historical fight for freedom & equality. Maybe a refresher on our U.S. Constitution is in order, then get back to opening up our government instead of taking our rights away.”

This is the place of the Jewish, Zionist and democratic State of Israel.”

He stressed the Jewish People’s historical rights to the land, going all the way back to their forefathers.

Gantz said to the Druze activists, who come from a population known for serving in Israel’s military: “We have a blood pact, but more than that we have a pact of life… I will do everything in my power to correct this legislation, so that it expresses this connection, this deep connection that is impossible to break not only in battle, but also in life.”

By Associated Press
President Donald Trump’s warning that if Turkey attacks U.S.-backed Kurdish forces in Syria, the United States will “devastate Turkey economically” has drawn a sharp response from Ankara and President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s spokesman.

Trump’s decision to pull American troops out of Syria has left the United States’ Kurdish allies in the war against the Islamic State group vulnerable to an attack from Turkey. Ankara views the U.S.-backed Syrian Kurdish forces as terrorists aligned with insurgents inside Turkey.
Turkey’s presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin responded to Trump on Twitter by saying: “Terrorists can’t be your partners & allies.” He also insisted that Turkey “fights against terrorists, not Kurds” as a people.

Israeli neuroscientist Moran Cerf’s astounding dream insights can help us change thinking, improve performance and be entertained during sleep.
By Abigail Klein Leichman, ISRAEL21c
Back in 2010, a chef in New York had a recurring dream about a fantastic new recipe. But he never remembered all the details when he woke up. He contacted Israeli neuroscientist Moran Cerf and asked if it was possible to record his food dream.
At the time, Cerf wasn’t able to help. Today he probably could retrieve that dreamy recipe.
“For the first time, we can actually look inside your dreams and decode the content,” says the associate professor of business and neuroscience at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management in Chicago
Cerf studies how thoughts get into the brain, how the brain encodes the incoming information, and how dreams and memories can be altered by “speaking to your brain behind your back.”
This is not science fiction.
The commercial applications of Cerf’s dream insights are already in development for anything from changing negative behaviors to enabling ultimate VR experiences

An Iranian Boeing 707 cargo plane coming from Kyrgyzstan crashed on Monday while trying to land west of Iran’s capital, state media reported, with an emergency official saying only one person of the 16 on board was known to have survived.
Fire immediately engulfed the aircraft after it skidded off a runway and crashed into a wall separating the Fath Airport from a residential neighborhood. Images carried by Iran’s state-run media showed the burned-out tail of the plane sticking out, surrounded by charred homes.
The plane crashed at Fath Airport, which belongs to Iran’s powerful paramilitary Revolutionary Guard, when it was meant to land at the nearby Payam International Airport, about 40 kilometers (25 miles) west of Tehran, the Iranian capital.

The Likud Party is on the attack against former IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz, leader of the new Israel Resilience Party.
By David Isaac, World Israel News
The Likud Party, led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, is looking to lower the public’s esteem for former IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz, the founder of “Israel Resilience,” a new centrist party that has enjoyed remarkable popularity out of the starting gates, consistently finishing second only to the Likud.
Two Dec. 4 newspaper polls show Israel Resilience winning 12 seats in the Knesset elections scheduled for April 9.
Seeing Gantz as a threat, Likud ministers have opened a two-pronged attack on the former chief of staff, attempting to undermine his military service and criticizing him for not revealing his position on any issues.
“It’s no secret that Benny Gantz was never chosen to any position where he was the first choice, he was always the fallback guy,” said the Likud’s Minister of Culture and Sport Miri Regev, on Sunday.
On radio station Kan Bet, Likud MK Ofir Akunis, minister of science and technology, refused to comment on Gantz’s military service when pressed by interviewers, but said that Gantz couldn’t remain quiet for much longer if he wanted to be taken seriously as a candidate.
Akunis said that Gantz was staying silent for a reason, in order to avoid the mistake of Amnon Lipkin-Shahak, who announced his entry into politics in 1999 as a former IDF chief of staff and initially enjoyed great popularity, until he revealed his left-wing political positions, after which his popularity plummeted.

The Israel Air Force struck two Hamas positions in the eastern Gaza Strip on Sunday in response to an explosive device that was flown into southern Israel earlier in the day, the Israel Defense Forces said in a statement.
On Sunday morning, a bomb was flown into Israel using a large cluster of balloons and a drone-like glider device, landing in a carrot field in the Sedot Negev region of southern Israel shortly before noon.
In retaliation for the cross-border attack from Gaza, Israeli military helicopters struck two Hamas positions east of the city of Khan Younis, according to the IDF.
Palestinian media reported that Israel also attacked targets near Jabalia, in northern Gaza, and in the Zeitoun area of Gaza City, in the center of the strip. The IDF refused to comment on the Palestinian reports.

Two orphans whose parents were killed months apart by terrorists in 2002 announced their engagement recently.
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Two orphans who met at a support group for those robbed of their parents by Palestinian terrorism, found stronger support than they ever imagined and have announced their engagement, Yediot Ahronot reported Sunday.
Ayelet Dikstein survived an ambush on her family’s car in July 2002 in the South Hebron Hills. Fatah Tanzim terrorists opened fire from one side of the road. Her father, Yosef, saw someone he thought was a soldier coming from the other side so he stopped the car, which held his wife and six of his 10 children.
Instead, it was another terrorist, and he, his wife Hannah, and nine-year-old daughter Shuva-el were murdered. Another two of their children were injured. Young Ayelet helped her siblings during the attack.
Both Yosef and Hannah were teachers in religious high schools in Jerusalem, and had recently moved from the capital to village of Psagot in the Binyamin region, partly out of solidarity to strengthen the embattled community.

In light of such comments, is Israel’s greatest ally still a reliable partner in the fight to beat back Iranian military entrenchment on the Jewish state’s doorstep.

DAILY DOSE | While Trump has prided himself on his decision to withdraw U.S. forces from Syria — even go as far as stating that Iran can 'do whatever they want' — Israeli officials are worried that he does not understand what they see as an urgent matter. Member of Israeli Parliament Avraham Neguise and our Michael Shure analyze.

Story:

US President Donald Trump said that the US is giving Israel $4.5 billion a year, and hence Israel 'is going to be good' notwithstanding American troops' withdrawal from Syria.

'I spoke with Bibi. I told Bibi, you know we give Israel 4.5 billion dollars a year. And they are doing very well at defending themselves,' Trump told media on Wednesday during a brief trip to Iraq.

The leader went on to further add that 'I’m the one that moved the embassy to Jerusalem. I was the one who was willing to do that. So that’s the way it is — we are going to take great care of Israel. Israel is going to be good. We give Israel 4.5 billion a year. And we give frankly a lot more than that if you look at the books. They’ve been doing a good job.'

Trump last week issued a surprise order pulling American ground forces from Syria declaring its mission to defeat the Islamic State extremist group there completed. The decision runs counter to long-established US policy for the region and blindsided lawmakers, the Pentagon, and international allies alike.

Israel is concerned over whether, without a US presence in the country, its main enemy Iran will have a freer hand to operate in Syria and whether Russia will respond to Israel's calls to limit it.

Israel has long warned that Iran was seeking to use its intervention in Syria to consolidate a permanent military presence on its northern borders and to form a contiguous 'land bridge' across to the Mediterranean controlled by its various proxies.

Israel has acknowledged carrying out hundreds of airstrikes in Syria against what it says are Iranian military targets and advanced weapons deliveries to Hezbollah.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed in the wake of Trump's surprise announcement that his country would 'intensify' its efforts to prevent Iranian entrenchment in Syria, and that it would do so with 'the full support and backing of the US'.

Early Thursday, an Israeli security official confirmed that Israel was behind overnight airstrikes in Damascus the previous day and said they were successful in hitting a series of Iranian targets, including storage and logistic facilities used to haul weapons over to the Hezbollah militant group.

'We are taking action against it aggressively and powerfully, including in these very days,' Netanyahu said Wednesday, adding that the recent US's withdrawal of 2,000 troops 'does not change our policy'.

Though Netanyahu said that he had discussed the US decision with Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Israeli lawmakers pounced on the shock announcement as a political-security failure for the premier, whose defense record is already under intense scrutiny in the run-up to snap elections on April 9.

In recent decades Israel has been the largest recipient of US aid, culminating in a 2016 package provided by Barack Obama's administration that saw the US commit to $38 billion in military aid spread across a 10-year period.

As Israel’s Attorney General reportedly prepares to summon Netanyahu to a hearing, the prime minister insists that starting one before the elections is a mistake. 
By Gil Ronen, World Israel News
With Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit reportedly preparing to summon Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to a pre-indictment hearing, Netanyahu insisted Saturday that he must postpone the hearing process until after the upcoming elections.
Meanwhile, Haaretz reported that Mandelblit is expected to make a decision on whether to charge Netanyahu in the three criminal investigations pending against the prime minister before the April 9 Knesset elections and will announce his decision next month.
The prime minister turned to social media in order to place pressure on Mandeblit to wait until after the elections, posting to Facebook a video of himself telling a joke about a man who walked down the street in a Middle Eastern country, with his right arm severed and an artificial arm sewn on to the stump.
“What happened?” the man is asked, Netanyahu says. Pointing to the artificial arm, the man explains that a lower court convicted him of stealing, and (pointing to the stitches) a higher court then acquitted him.

By David Jablinowitz, World Israel News 
A gag order was partially lifted Sunday afternoon on a Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) investigation into alleged Jewish terror, and security services began releasing information.
The agency said that some of the Jewish teens arrested and questioned over the past week are suspects in the murder of a Palestinian woman, Aysha Ravi, who was pelted with stones while driving her car near the Tapuah junction in Samaria and killed on October 12. The 47-year-old Ravi was said to be driving her car with her husband alongside her and was injured when a large stone hit her in the head. She was taken to the hospital, where she later died.
The boys are suspected of “terror offenses, including murder,” the Shin Bet said.
The Shin Bet says that on Saturday morning after the Friday night attack, a group of activists from nearby Yitzhar drove to the yeshiva — violating religious laws that prohibit driving on the Sabbath — in order to coach students they suspected were involved in the incident on how to withstand Shin Bet interrogations.

The bus drivers at Egged Transport announced that they will go on strike Monday to protest the gunfire attack on a bus in which a driver was lightly wounded Saturday night.
The drivers will already stop all work at a branch near the shooting on Sunday afternoon.
The company management announced that the driver union’s declaration of a strike was illegal, since the matter has not been recognized as a labor dispute.
“We call upon the workers to display responsibility and seriousness and to publicly apologize to the passengers for spreading inaccurate information that could affect their daily routine,” management said.

The planned U.S. troop withdrawal opens up a void in the north and east of Syria, and the conflicts and rivalries among all the powers in the Middle East are converging to fill it.
By Sarah El Deeb, Associated Press
The sudden American decision to pull out its 2,000 troops has forced a reassessment of old alliances and partnerships. The Syrian government, the Kurds, Russia, Iran, Israel and Turkey have all had a hand in the country’s nearly eight-year war — each in a way, fighting its own war for its own reasons within Syria. Now all of those conflicts play out in the territory being abandoned by the Americans, creating new tensions, potential chaos and bloodshed.
To reassure jittery allies, Washington sent national security adviser John Bolton to Israel on Sunday, to be followed by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo who is planning an eight-country tour of Arab allies this coming week.
Here is a look at what’s at stake.

The 83-year-old and ailing Mahmoud Abbas has been heading the Palestine Liberation Organization since Arafat passed away in 2004. Now it’s Abbas’s deteriorating health that has triggered speculations about his replacement.
While Ramallah officially claims business as usual, there is intense rivalry among possible claimants to the PA’s throne, as Abbas suffers from heart problems, prostate cancer and has been hospitalized several times. He’s a heavy smoker to boot.

By JNS.org
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Russian President Vladimir Putin agreed on Friday to increase cooperation between their two countries in Syria amid the announced withdrawal of U.S. troops from there.
In a phone call on Friday, Netanyahu reiterated Israel’s position regarding Iran’s presence in Syria, according to the prime minister’s office.
“To that end, the parties reaffirmed their mutual determination to strengthen coordination through military and diplomatic channels,” the Kremlin said according to the state-run TASS news service.
Additionally, “Netanyahu congratulated President Putin and the Russian people on the occasion of the civil new year and expressed his condolences over the disaster in Magnitogorsk,” according to the prime minister’s office.
Ties between Israel and Russia have seen ups and downs since the country entered into the Syrian civil war in 2015.

Even after a dramatic week in the campaign for the April 9 Knesset election, the prime minister’s party remains in the driver’s seat. 
By David Jablinowitz, World Israel News
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu can feel confident about his chances in the April parliamentary election, despite dramatic moves involving other parties and reports that a decision will be announced by the attorney general before the election over whether the prime minister will face indictment for alleged political corruption.
A public opinion poll released Wednesday by Kan public television and radio shows his Likud winning 28 seats. It’s a bit less than the 30 seats that the party now holds in the 120-seat parliament. But consider this: the closest party to the Likud in the opinion poll is the just-formed Israel Resilience, headed by former IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. (res.) Benny Gantz with just half of the Likud’s power, 14 seats.
This is where the race starts getting close. Right behind Gantz is MK Yair Lapid’s Yesh Atid party with 13 seats, followed by a combined non-Zionist faction called the Joint List with 12. They are followed by the just-announced New Right party headed by cabinet ministers Naftali Bennett and Ayelet Shaked. The two bolted their top positions in the Jewish Home party which, according to this poll, would not win any seats in the upcoming election.

By Associated Press
The pullout of U.S. troops from Syria announced by President Donald Trump before Christmas was initially expected to be completed within weeks, but the timetable has slowed as the president acceded to requests from aides, allies and members of Congress for a more orderly drawdown.
Bolton planned to meet with Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, and other officials on Sunday before traveling to Turkey. Israeli officials have expressed alarm that a swift withdrawal of the roughly 2,000 troops could enable Iran to expand its influence and presence in Syria, wracked by a years-long civil war and the Islamic State’s terror machine.
Trump’s move has raised fears about clearing the way for a Turkish assault on Kurdish fighters in Syria who have fought alongside American troops against ISIS extremists. Turkey considers the Kurdish People’s Protection Units, or YPG, a terrorist group linked to an insurgency within its own borders.

According to the survey,  77.5% of Palestinians said that the PA is not doing enough to deter people from selling land to Jews, 74.8% were said to believe that there are not sufficient penalties to deter Palestinians from selling land to Jews, and 64.4% supported the death sentence for selling land to Jews.

If the 1967 Six-Day War had never taken place and the “West Bank” had remained under the rule of the Hashemite Kingdom, where would “Palestine” be?
By Martin Sherman
If the “West Bank” was part of the “Hashemite Kingdom” up to 1967, how did it suddenly become the Palestinians’ long-yearned-for homeland, which up until then they were submissively willing to cede to an alien potentate?

“Not since the time of Dr. Goebbels [head of the Nazi Propaganda Machine] has there ever been a case in which continual repetition of a lie has born such great fruits… Of all the Palestinian lies, there is no lie greater or more crushing than that which calls for the establishment of a separate Palestinian state in the West Bank… ( “Palestinian Lies,” Ha’aretz, 30-7-76, by Prof. Amnon Rubinstein, former far-Left Meretz Education Minister)

As the new elections approach, the “Palestinian problem” is once again likely to dominate much of the inter-(and intra-) party debate. In many ways this debate is entirely superfluous. After all, a simple mental experiment will suffice to strip away the veil of mendacity shrouding the Palestinian grievances against Israel.

To demonstrate this, imagine for a moment that the 1967 Six Day War, in which several Arab armies marshalled their forces with the undisguised intention to annihilate Israel, never took place. Imagine that Israel had not been compelled to launch a preemptive strike in self-defense to thwart the Arabs’ openly proclaimed aim of total genocide that resulted in it taking over Judea-Samaria (aka the “West Bank”)—which the Palestinians now contend is their long-yearned for homeland.
Then ask yourself: If that war had not occurred, where would “Palestine” be?
After all, but for this war, the “West Bank” would not have fallen under Israeli administration. Surely then, the Palestinians would have no grievances against the Jewish state and there would be no charges of Israel “occupying Palestinian lands” and dispossessing the “Palestinians” from their “homeland.”

Police arrived at the Amona outpost on the outskirts of Ofra in the southern Samarian hills early Thursday morning and forcibly removed a few hundred Israelis, mostly youth, as well as the mobile homes that had been brought up to the hilltop.
According to the police, 200 youths who barricaded themselves in the structures poured oil on the road and threw objects in an attempt to prevent the evacuation.
By the completion of the three-hour eviction, 23 officers had been injured, primarily from stones thrown by the protesters, and at least four teenagers were hurt in the clashes, according to police.
One officer was stabbed in the hand by a sharp object allegedly carried by one of the teens. One activist was hurt by a stone that apparently was thrown by one of the other protesters. The injured were taken to hospital in Jerusalem.

The Palestinian Authority and associated institutions have been rebuilding homes of terrorists destroyed by the Israel Defense Forces.
By Aryeh Savir/TPS
The Palestinian Authority and associated institutions have been rebuilding homes of terrorists destroyed by the Israel Defense Forces, the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center revealed in a detailed report.
The IDF razes homes where terrorists lived as part of a punitive and preventative measure meant to deter future attacks. But the center says that the PA rebuilds the homes in “an act of defiance to challenge the deterrent message Israel sends by destroying” them.
The Meir Amit center reported on two recent cases that illustrate the PA’s policy.
The first involves Fatah activists and the municipality where terrorist Ashraf Naalwa lived. The IDF recently knocked Naalwa’s home down, and then only partially, in December.
Naalwa murdered Ziv Hajbi and Kim Yehezkel-Levengrond at the Barkan Industrial Park in October. IDF forces killed him in a shootout after a two-month manhunt.
Local Palestinians formed a special committee entrusted with building his family a new home, erected a mourning tent in his hometown after Naalwa was killed and held an event to raise donations.

Rio Governor Wilson Witzel made the unusual request, as he considers the ram’s horn a “call for freedom.”
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Wilson Witzel, the new governor of the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, wanted a shofar (ram’s horn used for Jewish ritual) blown at his Wednesday inauguration, and a rabbi happily agreed to the unusual request, JTA reported Thursday.
The shofar “represent(s) the call for freedom, to bring good vibes and positive energies to the new government,” according to organizers of the swearing-in ceremony.
The trumpet-like sounds helped him during a campaign stop, he said, according to the report.
“One of the most touching moments during my campaign was when I heard the shofar at the Beit Lubavitch synagogue. It gave me the strength I needed to carry on,” Witzel told reporters.
Rio, which has a 30,000-strong Jewish community, mostly in Copacabana, is where Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu headed with his wife Sarah when he first arrived in the country a few days before the parallel inauguration of Witzel’s mentor, President Jair Bolsonaro.
Netanyahu went to Brazil to honor Bolsonaro, who, as an evangelical Christian, is warmly disposed towards Israel and the Jewish people. It was the first-ever visit of an Israeli prime minister to the South American country.

The barrier, which extends into the Mediterranean, is a direct response to an incident four years ago when Hamas terrorists penetrated Israel from the sea during Operation Protective Edge in 2014.
The terrorists headed for a nearby Kibbutz armed with automatic assault rifles and grenades. Fortunately, Israeli forces spotted them and eliminated the threat.

In an “unprecedented” move, Israel’s tax authorities tapped Bar Refaeli’s phone to prove her main residence was in Israel, contrary to her claim.
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
The State Prosecutor’s Office on Thursday announced that subject to a hearing, it was considering putting supermodel Bar Refaeli on trial for hiding nearly NIS 30 million from the tax authorities.
Her parents, Tzipi and Rafi Refaeli, were also caught in the net and are suspected of money laundering.
The main allegation is that Refaeli falsely declared in her tax documentation from 2009-2010 that she did not live in Israel, did not earn money in the country and that her main center of life was in the United States. Due to that claim, she was exempt from paying Israeli taxes on money earned abroad.

Demands persist that the university fire a lecturer who reprimanded a student for wearing an IDF uniform.
By David Jablinowitz, World Israel News
Twelfth-grade students from the Nachalim Technology Center sent a letter to the Hebrew University on Wednesday to protest against a lecturer’s harassment of a female student who attended the class wearing her Israel Defense Forces uniform.
Apparently, in defense of an Arab student, the lecturer berated a female IDF soldier on Tuesday for wearing her uniform to class. The Arab student is said to have launched a verbal attack against the soldier.
The lecturer was identified as Dr. Carola Hilfrich, who according to Ynet told the student in uniform after the lecture: “You cannot be naïve and ask to be treated as a civilian when you are in uniform. You are a soldier in the Israeli army, and they will treat you accordingly.”
“Does it bother you that I wear my uniform to class?” the soldier-student reportedly asked the lecturer, telling Hilfrich that she must be tolerant and respectful of others.

Moshe Ya’alon unveils new party name to unenthusiastic public

Moshe Ya’alon unveils new party name to unenthusiastic publicFormer Israeli Minister of Defense Moshe "Boogie" Yaalon announced the name of his new party on Wednesday. (Flash90)
Former Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon announced his new party name on Wednesday. The latest polling suggests he would fail to clear the 3.25 percent minimum vote threshold.
By JNS.org
Former Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon announced his new party name on Wednesday, called “Telem,” an acronym for “National Statesmanlike Movement.”
“This is a holiday for me in which the citizens of Israel are being given good news, and my colleagues and I are being given hope and tremendous responsibility,” he said.
Without describing a specific platform, Ya’alon added that his new party would be an “independent political force” and put the “country back on the right track.”
This move ahead of the April elections mirrors former Defense Minister and Israel Defense Forces’ Chief of Staff Moshe Dayan, who led Israel to victory in the 1967 Six-Day War and founded a party with the same name in 1981, winning two seats in June of that year. Dayan died four months later.

Opinion: Europe’s slow, lethal surrender to Iran

In 2018, Europe’s leaders are again gambling with the security of their own citizens as well as that of their Middle East allies, especially Israel.
By Giulio Meotti, The Gatestone Institute
In the choice between greed and values, Europe is approaching an existential crossroads with Iran. Europe is both undermining its credibility and surrendering its principles.
For Western governments to defend the interests of businesses is normal. But to betray the Iranian people, who are repressed by their own regime; to undermine Israel’s concerns about Iran’s all too real threats of annihilation; to beg for an accord that fast-tracks Iran’s nuclear weapons capability and to boycott efforts by the U.S. administration to hold the Iranian regime accountable for its actions — these are not normal. They are lethal.
The Iranian leadership has long called for the destruction of Israel — the country, along with Saudi Arabia, most at risk from a nuclearized and aggressive Islamic Republic. In November, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani, who has been hailed by the media as a “moderate”, called Israel a “cancerous tumor in the region.” A few months earlier, Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, tweeted similar remarks:
