Netanyahu tells IDF to deliver hard blow to terror as rockets continue to rainAn explosion caused by an Israeli airstrike on a building in Gaza City, May 4, 2019. (AP/Khalil Hamra)
An 80-year-old woman was severely wounded, a 50-year-old man was moderately wounded by shrapnel and a teenage boy was mildly hurt as he ran for cover.
By Adina Katz, World Israel News
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with his security cabinet Saturday afternoon and instructed the army “to give a hard blow” to terror groups in the Gaza Strip amid a fresh escalation of violence.
At least 220 rockets were fired into Israel throughout the day on Saturday, beginning at around 10 a.m.
The escalation began on Friday when two IDF soldiers were shot and wounded by Gaza gunfire near the Gaza border.
“Hundreds of Gazans rioted on Israel’s border. Our soldiers stood between the rioters and Israeli families living a short distance away. Using civilians as cover, a sniper fired at our soldiers, wounding two,” the IDF stated on Friday.
Air-raid sirens sounded throughout the south on Saturday and as far north as Bet Shemesh, a central Israeli city near Jerusalem.
Israeli medical officials said an 80-year-old woman was severely wounded by the rocket fire, a 50-year-old man was moderately wounded by shrapnel and a teenage boy was mildly hurt as he ran for cover.
United Hatzalah volunteers in the south treated numerous people who were injured over the course of the day.  Some of those injured were in serious condition while others were moderately or lightly injured, the emergency medical services organization said.
In response to the Gaza rocket fire on Saturday, Israel’s military said, IDF began aerial strikes on Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad targets (PIJ) at about 2 p.m., including: four Hamas training and weapons manufacturing compounds. Hamas naval compound and a PIJ-Hamas joint military compound.
The Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted dozens of missiles, the IDF said.
The Israeli military reportedly hit a six-story commercial and residential structure Saturday evening.
The flare-up occurs just ahead of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which begins on Sunday, and Israeli Independence Day.

The Hamas terror group arrested, detained, and assaulted hundreds of people, including protesters, journalists and human-rights activists during the past year.
By JNS
A human rights nongovernmental organization (NGO) that has a special consultative status in the United Nations released a report last week that documented the fact that several hundred people were summoned, arrested and detained over the course of a year by the terrorist group Hamas solely because of their political beliefs.
Between March 1, 2018, and March 1 of this year, the Hamas terror group’s “security service” summoned, arrested and detained 742 people, including five women, for exercising their beliefs, according to a report by the Al Mezan Center for Human Rights, which mentioned bans on press coverage, in addition to restrictions on the media and censorship of entertainment deemed to be against Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip.
Al Mezan also documented reports of police exercising excessive force in dispersing protesters, journalists and human-rights activists.
“The ‘We Want to Live’ protests, which Hamas perceived to be a global conspiracy targeting the movement, have doubled the number of prisoners [being held for expressing their opinion] in an attempt to prevent the protests from escalating,” Samir Zaqout, Al Mezan’s director of monitoring and awareness, told Al-Monitor.
Zaqout mentioned that Hamas blocks access to visit prisoners.
“We are told that the security members in question are being held accountable, but we don’t know how,” he said. “Holding these members accountable doesn’t take place according to the law in force in the Palestinian territories, which requires the general prosecution to take action.”

Opinion: Let the Palestinian Authority collapse
 May 4, 2019
Opinion: Let the Palestinian Authority collapsePalestinian President Mahmud Abbas (Flash90)
Israel has no obligation, ethical or otherwise, to sustain the socio-economic edifice of its enemy dedicated to its destruction. Indeed, if anything, its moral duty is to bring about its collapse.
By Martin Sherman
The Oslo Accords, which spawned the Palestinian Authority, were born in sin. Today, that is beyond any reasonable dispute.
After all, without the support of Gonen Segev, who was later convicted and imprisoned for drug trafficking and fraud and, several years later, for treason and espionage, they would never have seen the light of day.
As readers might recall, Segev was elected to the Knesset on a hardline hawkish platform that opposed the very far-reaching concessions that the Oslo Accords entailed. However, he was coaxed (read “bribed”) by former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin with the lure of a ministerial portfolio, to betray his voters and cross the political lines to endorse the Oslo initiative, contradicting the core values of the platform on which he was elected.
As a product of both political betrayal and bribery, Oslo soon began to deliver its heinous results. Thousands of Israelis paid with their lives and limbs for the ill-considered initiative. What was grotesquely dubbed “the peace process” left cafes, buses and sidewalks strewn with body parts and gore, while the Oslo advocates doggedly refused to admit error, callously dismissing the dead and injured as “victims of peace.”

A terrorist who was imprisoned in Israel for bombing a bus has been sentenced in the U.S. for lying to immigration authorities when he became a citizen.
By WIN Staff and AP
Fifty-one-year-old Vallmoe Shqaire who was living in Downey, California was sentenced to nine months in federal prison Friday for unlawfully procuring U.S. citizenship in 2008. He also was stripped of his citizenship and will be deported to Jordan.
Shqaire spent four years in prison for helping in the 1988 attempted roadside bombing of a bus.
The pipe bomb exploded but nobody was hurt. Shqaire carried out the terror attack as an operative of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), which was classified as a terrorist organization by the U.S.
Shqaire pleaded guilty in January to concealing the bombing conviction and his PLO ties on his citizenship application.

The Times editorial board calls itself “stalwart supporters” of Israel, while the cartoonist responsible for recent charges of anti-Semitism claimed that Trump encourages ‘the expansionist radicalism of Netanyahu.”

By World Israel News Staff

Following expressions of outrage and demands for action over the publication of an anti-Semitic cartoon in the New York Times on April 25, the newspaper’s editorial board published an opinion piece on Tuesday, adding to two previous responses, one of which specifically came from New York Times opinion section, where the caricature appeared.

The board acknowledges that the cartoon had portrayed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a dog wearing a Star of David on a collar, leading U.S. President Donald Trump, depicted as a blind man wearing a skullcap, adding that “however it came to be published, the appearance of such an obviously bigoted cartoon in a mainstream publication is evidence of a profound danger — not only of anti-Semitism but of numbness to its creep, to the insidious way this ancient, enduring prejudice is once again working itself into public view and common conversation

Rabbi Uriel Vigler was verbally assaulted on his way to morning prayers but saved from physical harm due to the presence of a synagogue guard.
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
A Chabad rabbi on his way to synagogue early Tuesday morning in New York City was verbally attacked by a large man and believes he only escaped physical harm due to the appearance of a security guard.
Rabbi Uriel Vigler said that an African-American man spewed anti-Semitic slurs at him on the street, calling him a “f***ing Jew” and following him when he crossed the street to get away, saying “Are you nervous, are you scared?”
He told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that as he got close to his Upper East Side synagogue the man lunged at him, but then moved away when he saw the Chabad Israel Center’s security guard, calling Vigler “the devil.”
The rabbi posted a short video on Facebook of the last part of the episode, which shows a clear picture of his assailant, and said he was going to the police with it.

Former Jerusalem Mayor and new Member of the Knesset Nir Barkat, who served as mayor of Jerusalem for the last decade at a salary of one shekel a year, asked the Knesset accountant to set the same salary for his new position as a Knesset member.
“For me, it is a great privilege to serve the public without receiving in return,” he stated.
Formerly a businessman, Barkat made his fortune in hi-tech. However, Israel’s Knesset has previously seen wealthy members who did not ask to forgo their paycheck, which is funded by the public.

A top UK Jewish group is urging Labour to “look itself in the mirror.”
By Algemeiner Staff
A top British Jewish group has called out the local Labour branch in the city of Brighton and Hove over a string of recent incidents involving members of the party, which has been wracked by anti-Semitism scandals since far-left MP Jeremy Corbyn became its leader in 2015.
Board of Deputies of British Jews Vice President Amanda Bowman said in a statement on Tuesday, “We stand in solidarity with the Jewish community in Brighton and Hove in light of the series of disturbing revelations about the Brighton and Hove Labour Party.
“In recent days it has been revealed that council candidate Alex Braithwaite was suspended for a series of horrendous social media posts including Rothschild conspiracy theories and another local member, Amanda Bishop, called, in a chilling echo of the far right, for all local Labour members to march on Hove Synagogue,” Bowman continued.
“Labour needs to look itself in the mirror and ask itself about how this culture has grown up,” Bowman declared. “Bigots like Amanda Bishop need to know that people who seek to threaten, bully, or abuse our community will fail. Where prejudice shows its face, the Jewish community, whether at a national level or through our brave grassroots activists, will never be silenced.”

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin was welcomed at Knesset with a special ceremony by the Knesset Guard. An IDF band played the national anthem, the president’s flag was hoisted, and Rivlin laid a wreath at the memorial commemorating the IDF’s fallen soldiers.
Rivlin began a new Israeli tradition when he signed for the first time the “President’s Book,” a special volume in which the president inscribes his message to the new MKs.
Acting Speaker of the Knesset Yuli Edelstein read the text of the declaration of allegiance to the Knesset members, “I commit to being faithful to the State of Israel and faithfully fulfill my duties in the Knesset,” and each of them stood in turn and declared “I commit.” Addressing the Knesset, Rivlin quoted a prayer recited by Menachem Begin at his 1963 swearing in ceremony. “May the country profit, and may the people benefit.

Israel blasts French ambassador over ‘apartheid’ accusation

The French ambassador to Israel was summoned to the Foreign Ministry over her colleague’s recent “apartheid” statement.
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Israel’s Foreign Ministry summoned French Ambassador Hélène Le Gal on Monday over an accusation made France’s ambassador to the US that Israel an “apartheid state.” Gérard Araud made the accusation in an interview in The Atlantic, a respected American magazine.
Araud, who served as France’s ambassador to Israel from 2003 to 2006, commented to The Atlantic on the chances of success for Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations once President Donald Trump’s “deal of the century” is unveiled, claiming, “The problem is that the disproportion of power is such between the two sides that the strongest may conclude that they have no interest to make concessions.”
He added, “[T]he fact that the status quo is extremely comfortable for Israel. Because they [can] have the cake and eat it. They have [Judea and Samaria], but at the same time they don’t have to make the painful decision about the Palestinians, really making them really, totally stateless or making them citizens of Israel. They won’t make them citizens of Israel. So they will have to make it official, which is we know the situation, which is an apartheid. There will be officially an apartheid state. They are in fact already.”
Araud, the report said, is famous for making blunt remarks “that other ambassadors might not even think, much less state in public.”
In response, Israel’s Foreign Ministry “adamantly protested” Araud’s remarks, summoning Le Gal, according to a ministry spokesman.
In a series of tweets on Tuesday, Araud insisted he had made a distinction between “Israel,” which he said “is obviously not an apartheid state,” and the territory it liberated from Jordan in the 1967 Six Day War.

In midst of apology for anti-Semitic cartoon, New York Times publishes yet another

In midst of apology for anti-Semitic cartoon, New York Times publishes yet another(VG via JNS)
 Print  Email  100 Comments
Andrea Levin, president and executive director of CAMERA, told JNS it is “striking” that the Times would publish another cartoon that denigrates Netanyahu just days after the latest firestorm.
By Jackson Richman, JNS
Despite apologizing on Sunday for running an anti-Semitic cartoon that ran in its international edition on Thursday, The New York Times publised another anti-Semitic cartoon in the same edition over the weekend.
The weekend cartoon by Norwegian cartoonist Roar Hagen depicts Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with sinister eyes taking a picture of himself with a selfie-stick, carrying in what appears to be an empty desert a tablet featuring the Israeli flag painted on it.
The cartoon also resembles a different one from the same cartoonist featuring Netanyahu carrying a tablet that resembles the Ten Commandments, which the Israelites received in the desert after fleeing their enslaved lives in Egypt, in what appears to be a desert being followed by a sinister-looking U.S. President Donald Trump, both walking in the opposite parallel of a directional sign marked “Golan,” a reference to the Golan Heights.
Trump officially recognized Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan last month.
TheTimes did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Thursday’s cartoon featured U.S. President Donald Trump wearing a yarmulke, sporting dark-tinted glasses and being led by a dog with the face of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with a large blue Star of David hanging from its collar.
On Sunday, the publication said that it was “deeply sorry,” and that it “investigated how this happened and learned that, because of a faulty process, a single editor working without adequate oversight downloaded the syndicated cartoon and made the decision to include it on the Opinion page. The matter remains under review, and we are evaluating our internal processes and training. We anticipate significant changes.”
Appropriate for Der Stürmer
Times columnist Bret Stephens responded harshly to Thursday’s cartoon, which was printed above a column about immigration from Thomas L. Friedman.
“Here was an image that, in another age, might have been published in the pages of Der Stürmer,” he wrote in a piece published on Sunday. “The Jew in the form of a dog. The small but wily Jew leading the dumb and trusting American. The hated Trump being Judaized with a skullcap. The nominal servant acting as the true master. The cartoon checked so many anti-Semitic boxes that the only thing missing was a dollar sign.”
“The image also had an obvious political message: Namely, that in the current administration, the United States follows wherever Israel wants to go,” continued Stephens. “This is false—consider Israel’s horrified reaction to Trump’s announcement last year that he intended to withdraw U.S. forces from Syria—but it’s beside the point. There are legitimate ways to criticize Trump’s approach to Israel, in pictures as well as words. But there was nothing legitimate about this cartoon.”
Stephens added, “The problem with the cartoon isn’t that its publication was a willful act of anti-Semitism. It wasn’t. The problem is that its publication was an astonishing act of ignorance of anti-Semitism—and that, at a publication that is otherwise hyper-alert to nearly every conceivable expression of prejudice, from mansplaining to racial microaggressions to transphobia.”
‘Obsession with smearing Israel’
Andrea Levin, president and executive director of CAMERA, told JNS it is “striking” that the Times would publish another cartoon that denigrates Netanyahu just days after the latest firestorm.

About five minutes before the attack, the FBI said it received tips about a threatening social media post.
By Associated Press
The tips to an FBI website and hotline before a gunman on Saturday burst into the Chabad of Poway near San Diego included a link to the anonymous post but did not offer specific information about its author or the location of the threat.
The bureau said Monday that employees immediately tried to determine who wrote the post, but the shooting occurred before they could establish his identity.
One of the tipsters told The Associated Press that he called the FBI tip line at 11:15 a.m. Saturday because the post linked to a manifesto that said the author was responsible for a mosque arson in the city of Escondido last month. He says he found online that had the mosque attack had happened and feared the new threat was real.

The parents of the 19-year-old who attacked a Southern California synagogue said Monday they are shocked and saddened that “he is now part of the history of evil that has been perpetrated on Jewish people for centuries.”
By Associated Press
John T. Earnest’s parents said they raised him and his five siblings in a family, faith and community that rejected hate.
“Our son’s actions were informed by people we do not know, and ideas we do not hold,” the parents said in a statement, which didn’t include their names.
A gunman on Saturday burst into the Chabad of Poway near San Diego on the last day of Passover, a major Jewish holiday that celebrates freedom, and opened fire with an assault-style rifle, killing a woman and wounding a rabbi and two others.
“How our son was attracted to such darkness is a terrifying mystery to us, though we are confident that law enforcement will uncover many details of the path that he took to this evil and despicable act,” the statement said.
Earnest’s parents, who are cooperating with investigators, said their sadness “pales in comparison to the grief and anguish our son has caused for so many innocent people.”
Earll Pott, a family attorney who issued the statement, said the parents will not provide a legal defense for their son, who will likely be represented by a public defender. They asked for privacy.

Anti-Semitism in Canada breaks record for third straight year

Anti-Semitism in Canada breaks record for third straight yearB'nai Brith Canada anti-Semitism report (Facebook)
 Print  Email  8 Comments
Canada experienced a 16.5 percent increase in anti-Semitic incidents over the previous year.
By World Israel News Staff 
For the third consecutive year, records were set in 2018 for anti-Semitism in Canada, according to figures published by B’nai Brith Canada’s advocacy arm, the League for Human Rights.
A 16.5 percent increase is reported over the previous year, says the organization.
Incidents of anti-Semitism included a group of teens shooting lit fireworks at Hasidic Jews in Boisbriand, Quebec; two Saskatchewan elementary school students harassed and beaten by their peers; a group of Orthodox students in Toronto assaulted on the streets; a Winnipeg high school student mocked for her ‘Jewish nose”; a Manitoba woman told “you Jews deserve to die” in an anonymous phone call; and, a 13-year-old Toronto student harassed by a peer who threatened to “shoot up a Jewish school” and told her to “go back into the ovens.”
Harassment was the most dominant form of anti-Semitic expression in 2018, with a 28.4 percent increase compared with 2017 – representing a 61.5 percent increase since 2015, according to the report.
Eighty percent of incidents reportedly took place via online platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, email, and others.
“We are experiencing a disturbing new normal when it comes to anti-Semitism in this country, with expressions of anti-Jewish hatred surfacing in regions that are typically less prone to such prejudices,” said Michael Mostyn, Chief Executive Officer of B’nai Brith Canada.
“Of particular concern is the rise of anti-Semitic harassment on social media, including death threats, threats of violence, and malicious anti-Jewish comments and rhetoric,” he added.

By World Israel News Staff 
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), known for her use of anti-Semitic tropes in criticizing Israel, has received the first endorsement for the 2020 election from MoveOn, an American progressive public policy advocacy group and political action committee.
“The results are in: With 77% of votes cast in favor, MoveOn members in Minnesota’s 5th District have voted overwhelmingly to endorse Ilhan Omar for re-election to Congress,” the group writes on its website.
Upon winning the congressional election in November 2018, Omar was faced with backlash over comments she had already made against Israel, including in 2012, when she said that the Jewish State had “hypnotized the world.”
Since beginning her term in the U.S. House of Representatives in January, she has created more controversy by accusing the AIPAC lobby group of paying off politicians to gain support for Israel and challenging the loyalty to America of pro-Israel activists.
“Rep. Omar is a uniquely powerful, compelling member of Congress,” says MoveOn, adding that “despite racist and anti-Muslim attacks to silence the first Black, Muslim congresswoman in the United States—and blatant attempts to incite violence against her and Muslim communities—Rep. Omar has continued to speak out.”

Israel’s Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit warned Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s lawyers on Sunday that if they don’t set a date  for pre-trial hearings by May 10, he will proceed with the criminal charges without hearing Netanyahu’s side first, as is customary in such proceedings.
Netanyahu’s legal representatives say they have delayed making an appointment to go over the charges because they haven’t been paid.
They have also used this reason for not going to get the boxes of documents that Avichai Mandelblit’s office has collected over the course of the years-long investigations into the prime minister’s affairs.
Mandelblit appears unwilling to consider any further delays. In March, the attorney general announced his intent to indict Netanyahu, agreeing to freeze the hearing process only to accommodate the the nation’s Knesset campaign and elections.
A disagreement over money “does not justify any delay in transferring the core investigative materials to the prime minister or to his representatives, and in any event, this does not affect the date of the hearing,” he warned Netanyahu’s lawyers, reminding them via letter that the proceedings must take place before July 10.
Mandelblit’s office further cautioned that “if the prime minister elects not to hold the hearing, the attorney general will make a final decision on his cases on the basis of the evidence at his disposal.”

Israel’s Delek group, controlled by Yitzhak Tshuva, is close to clinching Chevron’s oil and gas fields in the British North Sea, which have a price tag of around $2 billion, sources familiar with the matter told Reuters.
Delek, via its North Sea oil and gas operator Ithaca Energy, could reach an agreement within days, two of five sources said.
U.S. oil major Chevron Corp kicked off the sale of its central North Sea oil and gas fields Alba, Alder, Captain, Elgin/Franklin, Erskine and Jade, as well as the Britannia platform and its satellites last July, with the help of U.S. investment bank Morgan Stanley.
One of the sources said that Delek would pay between $1.8 and $2 billion for the assets, which exclude Chevron’s 19.4 percent stake in the BP-operated Clair field.
The Israeli company beat competitors including a consortium formed by Britain’s Premier Oil and U.S. private equity fund Apollo Global Management and also British petrochemical maker Ineos Group, the sources said. It hired JP Morgan and BNP Paribas as advisers to the acquisition.
The acquisition would mark another step for Delek towards its expected public listing, the sources said. The company earlier this month acquired Shell’s 22.45 percent stake in the Caesar-Tonga field in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico for $965 million.
Chevron and Delek declined to comment.
Ithaca said in an emailed statement that “it is continuously looking at opportunities to grow its business, but will not comment on any specific situations or market speculation.”
The deal would be just the latest of many that have transformed the population of North Sea producers over the past five years.

Pro-Israel group demands Tlaib’s ouster over links to ‘terrorists and anti-Semites’

“Rashida Tlaib’s anti-Israel record is just the tip of the iceberg,” maintains the Zionist Organization of America, which called for her immediate removal from Congressional committees and ejection from the Democratic Party over the lawmaker’s alleged ties to “terrorists, anti-Semites, and conspiracy theorists.”
By World Israel News Staff
The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) released a statement on Thursday urging Congress to immediately remove freshman legislator Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D–MI) from key committees. The statement also called on Democratic leadership to throw her out of the party, which has increasingly come under scrutiny from pro-Israel groups like the ZOA for its statements and positions on the Jewish state and its approach to anti-Semitsim.

According to the ZOA statement, “Tlaib’s anti-Israel record was already well-known before she was elected in last year’s midterm elections. She calls Israel a ‘racist country’ on the basis of the lie that Israel discriminates against those ‘darker skinned,’ supports the destruction of Israel in favor of an Arab-dominated state (‘It has to be one state’), ‘absolutely’ backs withholding U.S. aid from Israel, and openly supports the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which is committed to international ostracism and weakening of Israel with a view to its eventual elimination.”
The statement focused on “newly revealed evidence of [Tlaib’s] pernicious associates, produced by the Israel Advocacy Network (IAN),” referring to a video posted to YouTube presenting social media activity in which Tlaib “personally and publicly singled out for praise” several “close associates” who assisted her in “win[ning] office.”
The statement noted that the IAN video presented evidence that some of the people Tlaib thanked are “close associates of Palestinian terrorists with Jewish blood on their hands,” noting, “In all, 18 individuals she praised . . . are rabid haters of Israel and proud supporters of blood-soaked Palestinian terrorists. Several of them have posted the most blatantly anti-Semitic material.”

Analysis: Trump dropping old terminologies, including ‘two-state solution’
 April 24, 2019
Analysis: Trump dropping old terminologies, including ‘two-state solution’Jared Kushner speaks during the TIME 100 Summit. (AP/Richard Drew)

The Trump team says it wants to find the solution first and give it a title later.

By David Jablinowitz, World Israel News

When U.S. President Donald Trump and his team launched their effort to formulate an Israeli-Palestinian plan for the future, the first objective which they set for themselves was to drop the terms that had been used in the past.

From their perspective, taking any contentious terminology from previous failed U.S. efforts in the Mideast would serve only to entangle them in a web from where there would be no escape.

A response by Trump senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner on Tuesday to a question about the two-state solution fit neatly into that approach. Asked if the anticipated U.S. plan, now expected to be issued publicly at the beginning of June, includes the formula of a state called Palestine next to Israel, Kushner replied: “I think that if people focus on the old traditional talking points, we will never make progress.”

The senior adviser was speaking at the TIME 100 Summit in New York City.

To supporters of this approach, the Trump team is showing great skill at dealing with substance while dancing around terminological traps. To opponents, the presidential advisers are showing that they over their heads in tackling what Kushner himself acknowledged is “about as tough of a problem set as you can get.”
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s approach has evolved in a similar manner. His outright objection to a Palestinian state was changed by a speech in 2009 in which he expressed his willingness to live alongside such a state, and later by comments in which he preferred to speak of Palestinian rule in demilitarized territories and evaded the issue of whether it would be called a state.
Due to the U.S. president’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, which included the transfer of the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to the capital, his acceptance of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, and the U.S. withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal, Mr. Netanyahu – as he works on forming his new government – is more willing to accept, albeit cautiously, that he and Mr. Trump are capable of working together regarding this peace plan.
The Palestinian Authority (PA), on the other hand, has declared that the Trump plan “won’t amount to anything” because the president has already shown his pro-Israel stripes, they argue.
The PA has reason to be concerned.
The U.S. team has accepted the argument that the Palestinians have lost previous opportunities, in particular, at the 2000 Camp David summit, when Israel’s Prime Minister Ehud Barak spoke with U.S. President Bill Clinton and PA leader Yasser Arafat of concessions regarding Jerusalem and a withdrawal from nearly all of Judea and Samaria, in addition to a handover of territory within Israel to a Palestinian state to compensate for areas that Israel would continue to hold in Judea and Samaria.
The mistrust between the PA and the Trump administration is mutual.
Washington is largely circumventing PA leader Mahmoud Abbas and his advisers, and instead dealing with Arab states with which the Trump administration has already built an alliance: Egypt, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia as well as other Gulf states. It’s also focusing on the people in the Palestinian areas instead of the leadership.

French Jews open up on anti-Semitism and their future in Europe

Jewish media, Israeli politicians and community leaders paint a picture of a France where Jews feel unsafe and are leaving in droves. Do Jewish residents agree?
By Orit Arfa, JNS
My trip to Paris to canvas the mood of French Jews began in the idyll of an Israeli-owned restaurant, Balagan, near the famed Louvre art museum. Emmanuelle Mary, a non-Jewish Parisian fashion and lifestyle marketing professional and frequent visitor to Israel (by virtue of her Israeli boyfriend), took me there.
The bar had that inimitably cool Tel Aviv vibe with friendly bartenders shouting “Shalom,” even though they weren’t Jewish, as they handed out free chasers over sexy music. Food offerings fused Mediterranean-Jewish-French favorites: hummus, chopped liver, roasted eggplant, fattoush salad.
If attitudes towards Israel and Jews could be judged by how full the place got with stylish Parisians, there should be no cause for concern about rising anti-Semitism in France.
Jewish media, Israeli politicians, and community leaders paint a picture of a France where Jews feel unsafe and are leaving in droves. Several incidents in recent years have triggered this perception: the Hyper Cacher kosher supermarket attack that occurred in conjunction with the gunning massacre of staff at the Charlie Hebdo publication; the kidnapping, torture and murder of 23-year-old Ilan Halimi in 2016 by North African Muslims; the especially brutal murder of Sarah Halimi in her apartment in 2017; and the gruesome, allegedly anti-Semitic burning of an 85-year-old Holocaust survivor, Mireille Knoll, in 2018. More recently, anti-Semites affiliated with the mysterious “yellow-vests movement” verbally attacked French Jewish philosopher Alain Finkielkraut and, around the same time, 80 gravestones were desecratedwith swastikas in the Alsace region.

Rouhani: Iran will negotiate with the US if it lifts sanctions and apologizes

Rouhani: Iran will negotiate with the US if it lifts sanctions and apologizesIranian President Hassan Rouhani (Iranian Presidency Office via AP)
“The hostility would not be left unanswered,” said Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in response to oil sanctions.
By World Israel News Staff
Iran is prepared to hold talks with the U.S. only once Washington lifts pressure on Tehran and apologizes, says Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani. His comments, made on Wednesday, were reported in state media and cited by the Reuters news agency.
“We have always been a man of negotiation and diplomacy, the same way that we’ve been a man of war and defense. Negotiation is only possible if all the pressures are lifted, they apologize for their illegal actions and there is mutual respect,” Rouhani was quoted as saying.
Oil prices hit their highest level since November on Tuesday after the U.S. announced that starting  next week, waivers that have been granted on imports of Iranian oil would end and sanctions would take effect. Washington announced sanctions on Iran as part of President Donald Trump’s withdrawal announced last May from the nuclear pact reached by the U.S. and five other world powers with Tehran in 2015.
The declared end to the waivers now pressures importers to stop buying from Iran and would reduce the global supply.

An Israeli official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the media, said Saturday that Israel will release two prisoners as a “goodwill gesture” after the return of IDF soldier Zachary Baumel’s remains from Syria.
Baumel’s body came home to Israel more than 35 years after he went missing in action.
The official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the media, said the release of the prisoners was not a condition for this month’s return of the remains of soldier Zachary Baumel. He said the decision was only made in recent days.

By Associated Press
China has told Washington to avoid “wrong moves” that hurt Chinese interests following a U.S. threat to impose sanctions on buyers of Iranian oil.
The Trump administration said Monday that it will no longer exempt any countries from U.S. sanctions if they continue to buy Iranian oil, stepping up pressure on Iran in a move that primarily affects the five remaining major importers: China and India and U.S. treaty allies Japan, South Korea, Turkey.
A Chinese foreign ministry spokesman, Geng Shuang, said Wednesday that Beijing opposes the Trump administration’s “unilateral sanctions and so-called long-arm jurisdiction” over Iran.
Geng said China, one of the biggest buyers of Iranian oil exports, would protect the “legitimate rights” of its companies but gave no indication how Beijing might respond if Washington imposes penalties.

Almog Peretz and his eight-year-old niece, who were wounded in a California synagogue shooting on Saturday, left Israel after surviving Hamas rocket attacks on their home in Sderot.
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Two of the people injured by a gunman who burst into a Chabad synagogue on Saturday in California had left the Israeli city of Sderot after surviving rocket hits from Gaza on their home.
During the attack, Almog Peretz, 34, heroically saved several children by rushing them out of the sanctuary when 19-year-old John Earnest ran in and began shooting. He credited his experience under persistent rocket attacks in his Israeli hometown for his quick reaction.
“This is sad, but I am originally from Sderot so we know a bit about running from the Kassam rockets,” Peretz told Israel’s Channel 12 as he lay in the Palomar Medical Center Poway, recovering from a bullet wound to his leg.
“There were many small kids next to me,” he recounted. “I took a little girl who was our neighbor and three nieces of mine and ran. I opened the back gate and we ran with all the children to a building in the back. I hid them in that building.”

By Associated Press
California authorities identified the gunman who opened fire inside a synagogue near San Diego as worshipers celebrated the last day of a major Jewish holiday as John Earnest, a 19-year-old nursing school student who posted an anti-Jewish screed online about an hour before the attack.
The poster of the manifesto also praised the suspects accused of carrying out deadly attacks on mosques in New Zealand last month and at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue on Oct. 27.
One woman, identified as 60-year-old Lori Kaye, was killed in the attack on Saturday.Those injured in the shooting were Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein, Noya Dahan, 8, and Almog Peretz, 34, said Rabbi Yonah Fradkin, executive director of Chabad of San Diego County.
There were indications an AR-type assault weapon might have malfunctioned after the gunman fired numerous rounds inside the Chabad of Poway, San Diego County Sheriff William Gore said.
An off-duty Border Patrol agent working as a security guard fired at the shooter as he ran away, missing him but striking his getaway vehicle, San Diego County Sheriff William Gore said.
Shortly after fleeing, Earnest called 911 to report the shooting, San Diego Police Chief David Nisleit said. When an officer reached him on a roadway, “the suspect pulled over, jumped out of his car with his hands up and was immediately taken into custody,” Nisleit said.

Dublin City University endorses BDS with 80% in favor

Dublin City University students pledge ‘active solidarity with Palestine,’ endorse Israel boycott.
By Shiri Moshe, The Algemeiner
Students at Dublin City University voted to endorse the Palestinian-led boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel this week, committing their union to lobby against ties with Israeli institutions.
The referendum — which was voted on by 1,764 students, 80 percent of whom were in favor — called on the DCU Students’ Union to “adopt a stance in active solidarity with Palestine” through BDS.
According to DCU Students for Justice in Palestine, the referendum directed the Students’ Union to promote “the issue of Palestine” and lobby the university to cut ties with Israeli companies and institutions that were accused of complicity “in occupation and apartheid.”
The results of an earlier referendum held on BDS this semester were nixed following technical issues.
SJP chairperson Stephanie O’Toole, who said she formed the club eight months before the referendum, said the results came after “two semesters of mobilizing and educating.”
“[W]e knew the odds were against us but israel’s apartheid is hard to defend when it’s laid out in plain facts,” she wrote on social media.
O’Toole, a self-described Marxist-Leninist, has in the past published multiple posts objecting to Israel’s existence.

Palestinian Authority uncovers Hamas spy operation against its security systems

Palestinian Authority uncovers Hamas spy operation against its security systemsProtest in Hamas-ruled Gaza against Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas (Abed Rahim Khatib/Flash90)
The Hamas spy operation is said to have been carried out by senior members of the terror group both in Gaza and abroad.
By World Israel News Staff
The Palestinian Authority (PA) says that the Hamas terror group has infiltrated the PA security establishment in a spy operation, according to a report in Ynet. 
The Hamas operation is described as wide-ranging, having taken place over the past year. Senior PA defense officials reportedly were recruited to spy for the terror group.
Hamas forcibly took control of the Gaza Strip in 2007, but has been viewed both by Israel and the Palestinian Authority as a threat to the PA in Judea and Samaria, as well.
Ynet cites Palestinian reports as saying that all of the Hamas agents have been arrested by the PA.
The Hamas spy operation is said to have been carried out by senior members of the terror group both in Gaza and abroad. It was uncovered two months ago, says the Israeli news website.
High-ranking Palestinian officials reportedly told both Ynet and its sister newspaper Yedioth Aharonot that after PA military intelligence uncovered the Hamas infiltration, it alerted the Palestinian Authority leadership and launched a secret investigation to learn of the extent of the plot. PA leader Mahmoud Abbas was said to have been notified.

Senator Sanders said Monday at a CNN town hall in New Hampshire that he believes the United States should “deal with the Middle East on a level-playing-field basis. What I believe, and you know the United States gives billions of dollars in military aid to Israel, what I believe is not radical.”
He told the audience that “as a young man I spent a number of months in Israel, worked on a kibbutz for awhile; I have family in Israel, I am not anti-Israel, but the fact of the matter is that Netanyahu is a right-wing politician who I think is treating the Palestinian people extremely unfairly.”

“Wonderful scene done by Egyptians who took part in the referendum… will be written down in our nation’s historical record,” al-Sissi tweeted.
By Samy Magdy, Associated Press
Voters in Egypt approved constitutional amendments allowing President Abdel-Fattah al-Sissi to remain in power until 2030, election officials said Tuesday.
Al-Sissi led the military overthrow of an elected but divisive Islamist president amid mass protests against his rule in 2013 and has since presided over an unprecedented crackdown on dissent.
Lasheen Ibrahim, the head of Egypt’s National Election Authority, told a news conference the amendments to the 2014 constitution were approved with 88.83% voting in favor, with a turnout of 44.33%. The nationwide referendum took place over three days, from Saturday through Monday to maximize turnout. Egypt has some 61 million eligible voters.
In his first public comments on the amendments, al-Sissi thanked the Egyptian people for voting.
“Wonderful scene done by Egyptians who took part in the referendum… will be written down in our nation’s historical record,” he tweeted minutes after Ibrahim announced the results.
Pro-government media, business people and lawmakers had pushed for a “Yes” vote and a high turnout, with many offering free rides and food handouts to voters, while authorities threatened to fine anyone boycotting the three-day referendum.

According to an Arab media report, Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Egypt are putting heavy pressure on the Palestinian Authority leadership not to resist Trump’s “deal of the century.”
By Shahar Klaiman, Israel Hayom via JNS
According to a report on the website Alkhaleej Online, a member of Fatah’s central committee revealed on April 20 that heavy Arab pressure was being applied to the Palestinian Authority leadership with regard to U.S. President Donald Trump’s Mideast peace plan—the so-called “deal of the century”—that the White House is expected to unveil in June. The official stated that Saudi Arabia was leading the campaign, the report said.
The source was quoted as saying: “There are Arab countries, chief among them Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt, that express great interest in the American deal, and are employing every available means, including political and financial pressure, to assure that the Palestinians accept the plan, despite the risks it involves for the Palestinian cause.”

By AP and World Israel News Staff
Jewish officials say an arson fire was set at the largest yeshiva in Russia as religious Jews were gathered there for the Passover seder on Friday evening.
No one was reported injured in the fire at the Toras Chaim school in an eastern Moscow suburb.
Olga Esaulova, a spokeswoman for Moscow’s chief rabbi, was quoted by the Interfax news agency as saying the fire was set in a storage area for kosher meat and that swastikas were drawn at the yeshiva’s entrance.
There were about 60 students, rabbis and guests in the building at the time, the state news agency RIA-Novosti reported.
Avital Chizhik Goldschmidt of the Forward tweeted on Friday: “Reports from Moscow that the Torat Chaim Yeshiva was attacked…by what seems to be neo-Nazis. Swastikas painted on the doors and the storehouse entirely burned, the yeshiva community’s precious kosher meat/food for Passover gone.”
In October, the Moscow Times reported that Russia, and eastern Europe in general, is currently experiencing its lowest level of anti-Semitism in history. The Russian newspaper said that the decline had been announced by Yuri Kanner, president of the Russian Jewish Congress.
In a recent survey conducted by the independent Levada Center, based on interviews with Russian Jews and the general population, 80 percent of respondents said that anti-Semitism levels had receded since the Soviet period, the report said.

‘Americanization’ of Israeli politics contributed to Netanyahu’s election victory, expert says

Mass media expert Dr. Gabriel Weimann believes President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu used similar tactics in their 2016 and 2019 campaigns, respectively.
By James Fattal
The “Americanization” of Israel’s political landscape and the rising prominence of social media in election campaigns both contributed to this month’s election victory by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his Likud party, said mass media expert Dr. Gabriel Weimann, a professor of communication at University of Haifa.
On Thursday morning in New York City, Weimann held a briefing on behalf of the American Society of the University of Haifa in which he unpacked the implications of the 2019 Israeli election and explored the role mass media played in the outcome. Earlier this week, Israeli President Reuven Rivlin confirmed that he will give Netanyahu Likud the first chance to form Israel’s next governing coalition.
“In the Israeli elections of the early 1970s, you saw many TV commercials, press conferences, and gatherings in the streets,” said Weimann, who has studied the evolution of political propaganda in Israel over the last five decades. “Today, TV’s power has gone down and has been supplanted by social media — particularly for Netanyahu, who during this year’s campaign often posted on Twitter, Facebook, and other online platforms a dozen times per day. This represents the Americanization of Israeli politics, a gradual process that actually started with Netanyahu himself in 1996, when he was the first Israeli candidate to have an American political advisor.”
Comparing America’s 2016 election outcome to Israel’s 2019 result, Weimann explained that Netanyahu’s approach was similar to the campaign strategy of U.S. President Donald Trump.

US ends sanctions waivers for importing Iranian oil

Announcing the step, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said no more sanctions waivers would be granted when the current batch expire on May 2, choking off Iranian income that had been more than $50 billion a year.
By Associated Press
The Trump administration said Monday that it will no longer exempt any countries from U.S. sanctions if they continue to buy Iranian oil, stepping up pressure on Iran in a move that primarily affects the five remaining major importers: China and India and U.S. treaty allies Japan, South Korea, Turkey.
President Donald Trump made the decision as part of the administration’s “maximum pressure” campaign on Iran that aims to eliminate all of its revenue from oil exports that the U.S. says funds destabilizing activity throughout the Middle East and beyond.
“This decision is intended to bring Iran’s oil exports to zero, denying the regime its principal source of revenue,” the White House said in a statement.
Announcing the step, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said no more sanctions waivers would be granted when the current batch expire on May 2, choking off Iranian income that had been more than $50 billion a year.
“The goal remains simply: To deprive the outlaw regime of the funds that it has used to destabilize the Middle East for decades and incentivize Iran to behave like a normal country,” Pompeo told reporters at the State Department.
The administration had granted eight waivers when it re-imposed sanctions on Iran in November after Trump pulled the U.S. out of the landmark 2015 nuclear deal. The waivers were issued in part to give those countries more time to find alternate energy sources but also to prevent a shock to global oil markets from the sudden removal of Iranian crude. Three of those waivers, for Greece, Italy and Taiwan, are no longer needed because they have all halted their imports of Iranian oil.
But the other five continue to import Iranian oil and had lobbied for their waivers to be extended. NATO ally Turkey has made perhaps the most public case for an extension, with senior officials telling their U.S. counterparts that Iranian oil is critical to meeting their country’s energy needs.

Is Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah warning of a war with Israel in the summer, and worried that he might be killed?
According to Elijah J. Magnier of the Kuwaiti Al Rai newspaper, Nasrallah told commanders: “The possibility of a war with Israel is very high this summer and I may no longer be with you.”
However, Hezbollah sources are cited by Lebanon 24 as denying the report, saying that all of it is a “fabric of the writer’s imagination.”
In the Al Rai report, the Hezbollah chief is quoted as warning that Israel could be ready to attack “with the objective of removing the threat on its borders once and for all.”
Nasrallah cautioned that “our people should know and…be prepared for the worse-case scenario.”

By World Israel News Staff
A campaign by White House adviser and U.S. President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner to defund the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) as a way of ridding Palestinian Arabs of refugee status is outlined in an email from January 2018, disclosed by the Foreign Policy diplomatic news outlet.
In the email, sent to other senior advisers to the president, Kushner writes: “It’s very important to have an honest and sincere effort to disrupt UNRWA.”

“This decision empowers vandals to continue to interfere with sacred religious practices without fear of accountability,” says First Liberty lawyer.
By World Israel News Staff
A California judge fined an Orthodox Jewish rabbi over $6,000 last week for reporting the vandalism of his synagogue to the police, reports First Liberty, a legal organization that says it is devoted to protecting the religious liberty of all Americans.
“This is an outrageous decision that penalizes a rabbi for simply reporting a crime that he witnessed,” said Stephanie Taub, a senior counsel to First Liberty.
“The rabbi made a good faith report to police about a crime he saw taking place on his property,” she added, arguing that “this decision empowers vandals to continue to interfere with sacred religious practices without fear of accountability.”

First Liberty said that its attorneys will appeal last Tuesday’s court decision.

The incident involves the Hebrew Discovery Center, located in Woodland Hills, CA.  The center describes itself as providing “educational Jewish programming for all ages, ranging from early childhood to young professionals…utilizing a hands-on, forward-thinking approach to education.”

In October 2016, First Liberty explained, “a band of activists stormed” the center’s synagogue after the congregation “performed an ancient religious ceremony involving the kosher and humane killing of chickens,” referring to a ceremony performed on the eve of Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement, the holiest day on the Jewish calendar.

By Bharatha Mallawarachi and Krishan Francis, Associated Press
At least 129 people were killed and nearly 500 hospitalized from injuries in near-simultaneous blasts that rocked three churches and three hotels in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday, the state-run Daily News reported.
A security official told The Associated Press that the death toll was 138 people, and included worshippers and hotel guests.
wo of the blasts were suspected to have been carried out by suicide bombers, according to the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity as he was not authorized to speak with reporters.

It was the worst violence in Sri Lanka since the end of the civil war a decade ago. The magnitude of the bloodshed recalled the random bombings perpetrated by the separatist Tamil Tigers that targeted a bank, a shopping mall, a Buddhist temple and hotels popular with tourists.

Analysis: Hamas’s honesty vs. Trump’s ‘deal of the century’
 April 18, 2019
https://worldisraelnews.com/analysis-hamass-honesty-vs-trumps-deal-of-the-century/?Analysis: Hamas’s honesty vs. Trump’s ‘deal of the century’Armed Hamas fighters on parade with a vehicle-mounted rocket launcher in Gaza, August 2016. (PressTV video screenshot)
This week, marking the 18th anniversary of the first Hamas rocket fired at Israel, Yahya Sinwar vowed to continue hitting Israeli “settlements” such as Tel Aviv.

By Khaled Abu Toameh, The Gatestone Institute

April 15 marked the 18th anniversary of the firing of the first Hamas rocket toward Israel. On this day, 18 years ago, Hamas’s military wing, Izaddin al-Qassam, launched its first rocket attack at Israeli population centers near their border with the Gaza Strip.

On the eve of this occasion, Yahya Sinwar, the Hamas leader of the Gaza Strip, threatened that his movement will continue to fire rockets at Israel. The rockets, he said, will be fired at Israeli “settlements” not only near the border with the Gaza Strip, but also at supposed “settlements” in the Israeli cities of Ashkelon, Ashdod and Tel Aviv.

Sinwar said that the recent Egyptian-sponsored ceasefire understandings between Hamas and Israel are not a peace agreement. The understandings, he explained, do not require Hamas to disarm or halt, near the border with Israel, the weekly demonstrations, also known as the “Great March of Return.”

“The understandings do not have any political dimension,” the Hamas leader said. “I promise that if a war is imposed on us, the occupation will have to evacuate its settlements, not only near the Gaza Strip, but also in Ashdod, Ashkelon, the Negev and even Tel Aviv. Remember this promise.”

Sinwar’s threats serve as a reminder that Hamas and other Palestinian terror group consider Israel one big settlement that needs to be annihilated. Hamas and the other terror groups do not see a difference between a Jew living in the West Bank and a Jew living in Tel Aviv or Ashkelon. To terror groups, all these Jews, regardless of whether they live in the West Bank or in Israel proper, are “settlers” and “colonists.”

For them, Tel Aviv, Ashkelon, Ashdod and all Israeli cities are no different than Jewish communities and neighborhoods in east Jerusalem and the West Bank. That’s why Hamas and the terror groups consider all “settlements” — inside Israel and in the West Bank — as legitimate targets for their rockets.

Contrary to claims by some Western political analysts and media outlets, Hamas has never recognized Israel’s right to exist. Needless to say, Hamas has never renounced the “armed struggle” against Israel.
Above all, Hamas has never accepted the “two-state solution” or changed its charter, which explicitly states:
“When our enemies usurp some Islamic lands, Jihad [holy war] becomes a duty binding on all Muslims. In order to face the usurpation of Palestine by the Jews, we have no escape from raising the banner of Jihad. This would require the propagation of Islamic consciousness among the masses on all local, Arab and Islamic levels. WE must spread the spirit of Jihad among the [Islamic] Umma, clash with the enemies and join the ranks of the Jihad fighters.”

Sticking to every word of the Hamas charter
Sinwar deserves credit for being honest about his movement’s true goals. He also deserves credit for sticking to every word mentioned in the Hamas charter, which was published more than 30 years ago and remains as relevant as ever to this very day.

Jihad, according to the Hamas leader, should be waged not only against Jews living in West Bank settlements (i.e., Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria), but also against those residing in “settlements” in all of Israel, including Tel Aviv. He says he wants to see all Jews evacuated from their homes. He says he is hoping that the Hamas rockets will one day force Israel to “evacuate” all Jews from their homes.

In the past 18 years, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other terror groups in the Gaza Strip have fired thousands of rockets and missiles at Israel.

A report by the IDF on Hamas’s rocket arsenal notes that the terror group has about 6,000 rockets. They include more than 1,000 units of self-produced short-range rockets (15 km range), more than 2,500 units of smuggled short-range rockets (15 km range), approximately 200 units of self-produced Grad rockets (20 km range), approximately 200 units of smuggled Grad rockets (20 km range), approximately 200 units of self-produced improved Grad rockets (45 km range), approximately 1,000 units of smuggled improved Grad rockets (45 km range), more than 400 units of self-produced medium range rockets (up to 80 km range) and dozens of long-range rockets (100-200 km range).

The other terror groups in the Gaza Strip, the report says, have approximately another 5,500 short-range, medium-range and long-range rockets.
Threats to be taken seriously
That is why Sinwar’s threats to fire more rockets at Israel should be taken with deadly seriousness. He is also right when he says that the ceasefire understandings with Israel are not a political agreement with the “Zionist entity.” Hamas cannot reach any political deal with Israel because it does not agree to Israel’s right to exist. This is the message that Sinwar and leaders of all Palestinian terror groups want the world to hear.

For the terrorist leaders, the only peace they will accept is one that results in the elimination of Israel and the evacuation of all Jews from their homes.

Hamas, of course, is strongly opposed to U.S. President Donald Trump’s upcoming plan for peace in the Middle East, also known as the “Deal of the Century.” How can Hamas accept any peace plan that recognizes Israel’s right to exist? Hamas is opposed to the Deal of the Century not because the plan doesn’t offer the Palestinians enough land. It is opposed to the plan because it doesn’t offer the Palestinians all the land, from the Mediterranean Sea to the Jordan River.

Consider another phrase from the Hamas charter, one that explains why it cannot recognize Israel’s right to exist:

“The Islamic Resistance Movement [Hamas] believes that the land of Palestine has been an Islamic Waqf throughout the generations and until the Day of Resurrection; no one can renounce it or part of it, or abandon it or part of it.”

Drafted more than three decades ago, the message the Hamas charter sends to the U.S., the Arab world, Palestinians and the rest of the international community sounds as if it was issued yesterday. It is a straightforward, unambiguous message that says:

“[Peace] initiatives, the so-called peaceful solutions, and the international conferences to resolve the Palestinian problem are all contrary to the beliefs of the Islamic Resistance Movement [Hamas]. For renouncing any part of Palestine means renouncing part of the religion. There is no solution to the Palestinian problem expect by Jihad.”

Abbas’s predicament
Hamas is not a small group whose threats can be brushed aside as “irrelevant.” It is a terror group that possesses thousands of rockets and controls the entire Gaza Strip, where nearly two million Palestinian live. It is a terror group that won the Palestinian parliamentary election in 2006. It is a terror group whose supporters have won a number of university student council elections not only in the Gaza Strip, but also in the areas controlled by the Palestinian Authority in Judea and Samaria.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has undoubtedly read the Hamas charter. He knows that, as a Muslim, if he accepts any peace plan that does not include the expulsion of all Jews from their homes, he will be denounced by his rivals in Hamas as a traitor.

Abbas is also aware of Hamas’s threats to shower Israel with rockets. He knows that at the same time as Hamas attacks Israel, it will seek to flatten him for “betraying” Arabs and Muslims in “allowing” Jews to continue living in “their” state. This is the Palestinian reality that the Deal of the Century is about to be dealt.

“Do you have any concerns about the comments Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who was just reelected, made right before he was reelected vowing to annex [Judea and Samaria]?” asked Tapper, adding, “Do you think that might hurt the pursuit of peace, the two-state solution proposal that Jared Kushner and others, including you, have been working so hard on?”

A final ballot count gives Netanyahu’s Likud party an bigger edge than previously predicted, leaving Bennett and Shaked out in the cold in the upcoming Israeli government.

By World Israel  News Staff and AP

The official count of election ballots on Thursday granted Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party an additional seat in parliament, making it the largest faction in the Knesset and punctuating the Israeli leader’s victory.

The final count showed that the New Right party of Education Minister Naftali Bennett and Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked, falling just short of the necessary 3.25% of the votes needed to get into parliament.


 
The New Right, which fell just a few hundred votes short of entering parliament, said it would challenge the count.
Former MK and publicist Elyakim Haetzni, a New Right supporter, lamented Bennett’s and Shaked’s fate, commenting to Israel Hayom, “I don’t know any other ministers who achieved such real and measurable results as they did.”
“We’ll feel their absence especially if Netanyahu adopts the Trump peace plan, which some say is his own plan, and there isn’t enough power on the right to stop him. That power has to come from the Likud now. There are good people there, but I don’t know if they will have the courage,” added Haetzni.
Haetzni concluded, “The persecution and the fierce hate the left expressed about [Netanyahu] aroused a natural counter-reaction.”
The New Right had one of the most disappointing performances of the election. The pair of popular ministers split from their religious Jewish Home party and sought greater power by appealing to new secular voters. The maneuver backfired.
The results released by Israel’s central election commission showed Likud capturing a total of 36 seats in the 120-seat Knesset, compared to 35 seats for its main rival, the centrist Blue and White party. An earlier count had the two parties deadlocked.
Altogether, Likud and its traditional religious and nationalist allies command a 65-55 majority in parliament, putting Netanyahu in position to head the next coalition government. On Wednesday, Blue and White’s leaders conceded defeat.
Although the ballot count is complete, commission head Hanan Melzer said the results were not official and still subject to review. He said final certified results are to be handed to the country’s president next Wednesday.

The New Right had one of the most disappointing performances of the election. The pair of popular ministers split from their religious Jewish Home party and sought greater power by appealing to new secular voters. The maneuver backfired.
The results released by Israel’s central election commission showed Likud capturing a total of 36 seats in the 120-seat Knesset, compared to 35 seats for its main rival, the centrist Blue and White party. An earlier count had the two parties deadlocked.
Altogether, Likud and its traditional religious and nationalist allies command a 65-55 majority in parliament, putting Netanyahu in position to head the next coalition government. On Wednesday, Blue and White’s leaders conceded defeat.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has sworn in a new cabinet led by a longtime ally who is critical of Gaza’s brutal Hamas rulers and does not categorically oppose continuing negotiations with Israel.
Abbas, who heads the Palestinian Authority, accepted the oath of office on Saturday from the new cabinet headed by Prime Minister Mohammed Ishtayeh.
While the Palestinians have not held elections in over 13 years, Abbas’ four-year-term appears poised to continue until his death.

The Caesar Tonga oil field is one of the ten largest deepwater resources in the Gulf of Mexico, with a “production horizon” spanning dozens of years.
By World Israel News Staff
The Israeli Delek Group energy giant has announced that it signed an agreement on Wednesday to acquire 22.45% interest in the Caesar Tonga oil field, one of the ten largest deepwater resources in the Gulf of Mexico.
The Israeli conglomerate said that it will co-own the asset with three other leading oil and gas companies in the international energy market: Anadarko Petroleum, Equinor, and Chevron.
Under the terms of the agreement, Delek will maintain exploration, development, and production rights for oil and gas at the Caesar Tonga field, says Delek. Located 300 kilometers (185 miles) south of Louisiana at a depth of 1,500 meters (over 1,600 yards), the field contains eight wells connected by an undersea pipeline network to a production platform, it said in a statement.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu applauded the decision of the International Criminal Court (ICC) at the Hague on Friday to reject a petition to investigate U.S. soldiers who served in Afghanistan. He made his remarks at the weekly Cabinet meeting on Sunday in Jerusalem.
“To come and put on trial U.S. or Israeli soldiers, or the State of Israel or the U.S., is absurd. It is the opposite of the original goal of the international court,” he said.

By David Isaac, World Israel News
SpaceIL said it would try a second time to land a spacecraft on the moon with a new spacecraft already named “Beresheet 2” (or, “Genesis 2”). Morris Kahn, the South African-born Israeli billionaire and main funder of the project, made the announcement during an interview on Israel’s “Meet the Press” program on Saturday.
Work on the second spacecraft will begin immediately.
SpaceIl is the nonprofit that led the attempt to put Israel’s first spacecraft, Genesis, on the moon. It crashed into the lunar surface on Thursday night Israel time. If successful, it would have been the world’s first privately funded effort to put a lander on the moon.
Genesis came tantalizingly close. Israelis watched a live feed from SpaceIL’s control center in Yahud, Israel. All systems appeared to be working as the engines fired to slow the craft for a soft landing. Suddenly communication was lost and the engines shut down.
Ground control managed to reestablish communication and the engines restarted, but by then it was too late and the spacecraft crashed into the moon’s surface at 500 km/hr.

By David Isaac, World Israel News
Is this the end of the road for Naftali Bennett?
The up-and-coming leader had big dreams. Serving as education minister in the last government, he had his eye on the defense ministry, viewing it as another notch in his belt, necessary experience to put on his political resume in order to convince the Israeli electorate to award him the main prize – the premiership.
Those dreams may have ended with what is turning into his biggest misstep. In December, Mr. Bennett unceremoniously dropped the Jewish Home party, which he led, in order to found the New Right party.

The IDF has decided against allowing women into combat positions in the Armored Corps.
By David Isaac, World Israel News
The Israel Defense Forces will not let women into the Armored Corps. it announced on Sunday.
The Army made the decision despite a successful pilot program less than a year ago, in which 10 female IDF soldiers were trained as tank crews, four of whom went on to train as tank commanders.
An IDF Spokesperson said: “During the course of a year and four months, an experiment was conducted to examine whether a team of women could operate a tank that was operationally suited to the challenge of defending the borders. During the course of the training, three tank crews and four tank commanders were successfully trained.”
However, the spokesperson continued, “An assessment of the situation by General Army Command in the Armored Corps showed that the next stage would require a significant increase in manpower and infrastructure for the realization of the process” of creating female tank units.

By seeking to override or ignore the will of Israeli democracy, they are accelerating the breakdown of the rapidly eroding bipartisan consensus in favor of the Jewish state.
By Jonathan S. Tobin, Editor-in-Chief, JNS
When leaders of Tammany Hall—the legendary Democratic machine that ran New York City for more than a century—would be confronted with an occasional electoral setback, their usual response was to deride it by claiming that if their handpicked candidates didn’t win, then “it ain’t democratic.”
That’s pretty much the reaction of much of the Democratic Party to the results of Israel’s election. Prominent Democrats have greeted the victory of the man who was the bitter foe of President Barack Obama and, just as bad, the close friend and ally of President Donald Trump with a mixture of dismay and horror.

Once Rivlin receives the official results of the elections from Judge Melcer two days later, he will decide whether a further round of consultations is required.
According to custom, the president will meet with the parties, hear their recommendations and, at the end of the consultations with all parties, announce who he has entrusted with forming a government. According to Israel’s “Basic Law: The Government,” that person has 28 days to form a new coalition.

By World Israel News Staff
Kulanu party leader Moshe Kahlon is reportedly negotiating with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to rejoin Likud.
Netanyahu’s Likud party was victorious in last week’s national election and will lead a right-wing government.
The centrist Kulanu party, which received 10 seats in the 2015 election, is now down to four.
According to several analysts, returning to Likud would be a natural move for Kahlon. A former Likud Knesset member, Kahlon launched Kulanu in November 2014 and, since 2015, has served as minister of finance in the Netanyahu-led coalition.

“The right-wing bloc led by Likud clearly won. I thank Israeli citizens for their trust,” Netanyahu stated at Likud headquarters Tuesday night.
By Terri Nir, World Israel News
It was a tense national election day on Tuesday, with the 10 p.m. exit polls showing the new Blue and White party in the lead or standing neck and neck with Likud.
Just after 3 a.m. Wednesday morning, however, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu emerged as the clear winner, with Likud leading 35 to 34 over Blue and White. They were followed by religious and right-wing parties – natural partners for Likud – putting Netanyahu in a strong position to form the next government.
“The right-wing bloc led by Likud clearly won,” Netanyahu told thousands of jubilant supporters at Likud headquarters. “I will begin forming a right-wing government with our natural partners already tonight… This is a night of tremendous, tremendous victory.”
“Already tonight, almost all of them declared publicly that they will recommend me to form the next government,” he said. “I intend to finish the job quickly in order to establish a nationalist, stable government.”
“It will be a right-wing government, but I intend to be the prime minister of all the citizens of Israel – right and left, Jews and non-Jews alike. All the citizens of Israel,” he declared.
Acknowledging the major hurdles facing Israel regarding security, economy, society and foreign relations, Netanyahu expressed confidence that “we will be able to meet all these challenges.”
Concerning the “path to peace with Arab nations,” for example, “even as we speak, it’s happening,” he said.
The Israeli leader tearfully thanked his wife and children for their support, noting “how much suffering my family has endured” during a particularly vicious election campaign fraught with mudslinging and defamation.

Israeli officials were anticipating the publication of the Trump peace plan after the Knesset election.
By World Israel News Staff
A day after the Knesset election, U.S. national security adviser John Bolton has told ABC that ” I think Trump’s peace plan will be published in the very near future.”
Trump administration officials have said that they expect the plan for Israelis and Palestinians to be made public right after Israel’s parliamentary election, with indications that it could happen even before the new government is formed, a process that could take several weeks.
U.S. officials say they have briefed regional leaders, though the Palestinian Authority says it has been boycotting diplomatic contacts with Washington to protest President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
Reports have emerged over details of the plan, which have said that it includes Israeli compromises on Jerusalem, though overall is more favorable from the vantage point of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu than previous American proposals from earlier administrations.
Regional countries would receive U.S. aid, in exchange for cooperating with the implementation of the plan, according to reports.

The Knesset election result points back to a time when two major parties rose above the rest.
By David Jablinowitz, World Israel News
It seems like old times.
Back in the 1980s, Israel had two large parties: Likud and Labor. They were the major parties, with a number of smaller factions far behind.
In more recent years, the gaps between the larger and smaller parties narrowed. It caused greater governmental instability as the supposed ruling party had to constantly look over its shoulder at a partner which wasn’t much smaller. In the 2013 election, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud-led list won 31 seats and the new Yesh Atid Party, led by former journalist and television personality Yair Lapid, earned 19 seats.
Mr. Netanyahu was prime minister but Mr. Lapid was a very powerful government partner.
Next in line were factions which had earned 15, 12, and 11 seats respectively, followed by several more in the single digits. We had only one large party, but also mid-size parties, and then the smallest ones.
The political landscape was a free-for-all. Over the course of time, the Knesset has been working against the phenomenon of tiny parties running on their own by raising the threshold, the minimum percentage of the vote needed to enter the Israeli parliament. It is now 3.25 percent. Gone are the days of one or two-member factions entering the Knesset with the math putting the current minimum at about four seats.

Home-rental giant Airbnb retreats from its position to ban the listing of Jewish-owned rentals homes in Judea and Samaria.
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Airbnb announced Tuesday that it was reversing its decision to prohibit listing Jewish-owned homes in Judea and Samara on its website, thereby handing a defeat to the Boycott, Divest and Sanctions (BDS) Movement in what had previously been thought a major BDS victory.
The rental giant’s move ensured that it would not have to go to court to defend itself against charges that it was discriminating against clients based on their religion. Airbnb had singled out Jewish homes in the disputed territories, while continuing to allow Christian and Muslim-owned homes to be listed.
Lawsuits were filed against Airbnb in Israel, California, New York and Delaware.
Shurat Hadin, the Israel Law Center, which brought the case in Delaware, also argued that Airbnb discriminated by singling out only one disputed territory in the world, while ignoring other conflict zones, such as South Ossetia and Abkhazia.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo dodged repeated questions regarding administration support for a Palestinian state in a Tuesday Senate hearing, saying only that it was up to the two sides to decide what will happen and that the US is working on its “vision” for peace.
In a hearing in the Senate Appropriations subcommittee whose subject was the administration’s planned cuts to the State Department and USAid 2020 budget, Pompeo was questioned on several foreign policy issues.
Senator Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) took the lead on Israel. He referred to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s last-minute election pledge to right-wing supporters that he would soon annex the Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.
“It sounds like you’ve already abandoned what has been a bipartisan foreign policy of opposing the annexation of any or all of the West Bank by Israel,” Van Hollen said. Secretary Pompeo avoided the question, referring only to the planned unveiling of the Trump peace plan in response.

Germany police raided charities which are suspected of financing the terrorist group Hamas.
By World Israel News Staff
Germany’s interior ministry said German police on Wednesday raided the offices of Islamic organizations suspected of financing Hamas, which is on the European Union’s list of terrorist organizations.
WorldWide Resistance-Help and Ansaar International were the main targets of the raids.
“Whoever supports Hamas under the guise of humanitarian aid disregards fundamental values of our constitution and discredits the commitment of many aid organizations,” Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said.
Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, has conducted low-level warfare against Israel since March, 2018, organizing riots along the border and sending incendiary kites and balloons into the Jewish State, causing damage to wide swathes of Israel’s southern countryside.
Hamas also launches missiles at Israel attempting to inflict as much as damage as possible without distinguishing between military and civilian targets.
Israel left the Gaza Strip in 2005. In 2006, Hamas won elections in Gaza. In 2007, a violent conflict broke out between Hamas and its political rival, the Palestinian Authority, which Hamas won.

Women’s March deputy head of communications, Sophie Ellman-Golan, insisted that “white Jews, like all white people, uphold white supremacy.”
By Denis MacEoin, Gatestone Institute
It is well-known by some and wholly ignored by others that Islam has a long, sad history of anti-Semitism, a bigotry that originated in the seventh century C.E. (the first Islamic century) and has grown more vicious in the 21st.
Combined with an almost universal anti-Zionism and bolstered by many on the political “left,” it is today the most ubiquitous and deadliest form of Jew-hatred. It takes the form, not just of insults, boycotts, and lawfare, but of wars, terrorist attacks, and calls for the destruction of the Jewish state and the genocide of the Jews.
There are many forms of Islam, although its two great branches are Sunnism and Shi’ism, with numerous mystical Sufi orders that are mainly Sunni. Modern forms of Muslim extremism and terrorist outfits adhere closely to sharia, the Qur’an, the Hadith and other norms of Islamic faith and practice.
The Muslim Brotherhood, the Taliban, al-Qa’eda, al-Shabaab, Hamas and countless others regard themselves as regular Muslims of an orthodox variety, albeit with variations.
There is, however, one curious case of a movement that pledges allegiance to Islam, obeys the five pillars of the religion — faith, prayer, fasting, charity, and the pilgrimage to Mecca — while holding to some un-Islamic beliefs. It also happens to be the most anti-Semitic of all, if that is possible.
According to the Southern Poverty Law Center:
Since its founding in 1930, the Nation of Islam (NOI) has grown into one of the wealthiest and best-known organizations in black America, offering numerous programs and events designed to uplift African Americans. Nonetheless, its bizarre theology of innate black superiority over whites — a belief system vehemently and consistently rejected by mainstream Muslims — and the deeply racist, anti-Semitic and anti-LGBT rhetoric of its leaders, including top minister Louis Farrakhan, have earned the NOI a prominent position in the ranks of organized hate.

New data provides an in-depth picture of Jewish grandparents in an age of complexity and change.
By JNS
The first-ever national study of Jewish grandparents – commissioned by the Jewish Grandparents Network (JGN), in partnership with 17 national organizations and Jewish Federations – provides detailed information about the demographics, attitudes, beliefs, behaviors, and needs of this crucial family sector.
Nearly 8,000 individuals (approximately 1,000 of them from a nationally representative sample) participated in the study.
Key findings include the fact that most grandparents are committed to transmitting Jewish values; nearly half of the grandparents in the national representative sample have a child married to a non-Jewish partner; and most frequently, interactions between grandparents and their grandchildren take place in their homes and their grandchildren’s homes, around birthdays and national holidays.

Likud election observers were found with hidden cameras at Arab polling stations on Tuesday. One source said they wanted to make sure the Arabs didn’t falsify the vote.

By David Isaac, World Israel News

Israeli police confiscated as many as 1,300 cameras from Likud party election observers at Arab polling stations on Tuesday, Israel’s Channel 13 reports. The Likud admitted to distributing the cameras.

The Likud observers were caught in a number of Arab towns, including Sakhnin, Majd al-Krum, Nazareth, Tamra and Jisr al-Zarqa, the news site reports. After they handed over or placed their cameras outside the polling stations, the volunteers were allowed to return to work.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defended the presence of cameras, saying on Tuesday, “There should be cameras everywhere, not hidden ones.” When a reporter asked why he thought they were needed he said, to “ensure a fair vote.”
Placing cameras at a polling station isn’t a criminal offense, police say, unless they’re installed behind the privacy divider where people choose their ballots.

Once a major party in Israeli politics, Labor has struggled to earn double-digit Knesset seats in surveys leading up to the current election.
By World Israel News
Amid all the talk of the challenge posed in Tuesday’s Knesset election by the Blue and White list to incumbent Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party, Labor leader Avi Gabbay says that his party will have gained enough seats in the nationwide vote to ensure that a center-left coalition will lead the next Israeli government.
Gabbay does not expect to become prime minister but he argues that his party will fare better in the election than in the polling which has been conducted over the past few months since electioneering began. According to public opinion surveys, Labor runs the risk of falling short of a double-digit number of seats in the 120-member Israeli parliament.

Election shenanigans have been reported at a number of polling sites during Tuesday’s national election in Israel, The Jerusalem Post reports.
The main criticism, outside of the dramatic news that the Likud had distributed 1,200 hidden cameras to their supporters to keep an eye on the Arab sector, is that voting slips have been missing from various stations.

The devices, by visual aid company OrCam, are available at accessible polling stations throughout Israel as the country votes in the general election on Tuesday.
By CTech
Artificial vision device company OrCam Technologies Ltd. has partnered with Israel’s Central Elections Committee (CEC) to enable visually impaired voters to cast their ballots independently as the country votes in the general election Tuesday.
More than 6.3 million Israelis are eligible to vote, according to the CEC, of whom approximately 22,000 are legally blind, according to the Ministry of Labor, Social Affairs and Social Services. Another 100,000 voters have visual impairments. Blind and visually impaired people usually vote with the assistance of an escort.
OrCam’s device, MyEye2, is designed to help visually impaired people “see their ballot.” The finger-size device is fitted with a camera and microphone and clips onto glasses, discreetly reading printed and digital text aloud to the person donning the device. On election day, the device will be available for use in 12 polling stations throughout Israel, from Eilat in the south to Akko in the north, as part of a pilot plan.

Tehran’s countermoves against President Trump’s declaration also included designating U.S. troops in the region as terrorists.
By World Israel News Staff
Iran is countering U.S. President Donald Trump’s designation of its Revolutionary Guards Corps as a terrorist organization with its own declaration that the U.S. is a “state sponsor of terrorism” and that American forces in the region are “terrorist groups,” says Al-Jazeera, citing Iranian state media.
Iran also argues that the U.S. decision is illegal.
Soon after Mr. Trump’s announcement on Monday, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif sent a protest note to the Swiss embassy in Tehran, which looks after U.S. interests in Iran, and urged President Hassan Rouhani to put American forces deployed in the region on Tehran’s list of terror groups, according to Iranian’s Foreign Ministry.
Iran’s Supreme National Security Council immediately responded by designating the U.S. regional command and all its forces as terrorists, and labeling the U.S. a “supporter of terrorism.”
Referring to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s reelection bid in Tuesday’s Knesset election, Zarif said that Mr. Trump’s declaration was another “misguided election-eve gift to Netanyahu.”

The suspect Rondell Henry, who led services at the Islamic Society of Germantown, was described as “very peaceful” by one congregant. The U.S. government, however, says he harbored hate for “disbelievers.”
By Associated Press
A Maryland man inspired by the Islamic State group plotted to ram a stolen U-Haul truck into as many pedestrians as possible at a popular convention and tourist destination just outside the nation’s capital, federal prosecutors said Monday.
The allegation was made in a court filing as prosecutors in Maryland urged a judge to keep the defendant, 28-year-old Rondell Henry, detained on a charge of driving a stolen vehicle across state lines. The police arrested him on March 28 after officers who discovered the stolen truck saw him leap over a security fence.
Henry then made incriminating statements that show steps he took to maximize damage, prosecutors say.

Palestinian Authority (PA) senior figures warned of a parade of horribles if Israel annexes parts of Judea and Samaria.
On Sunday, Palestinian Liberation Organization Secretary General Saeb Erekat said the move would bring a “cycle of violence and chaos” while speaking at the World Economic Forum in Jordan.
“We heard Prime Minister Netanyahu speaking openly about his intentions to separate the West Bank and Gaza Strip and about annexing the West Bank,” Erekat said according to Israel’s Channel 13. “The international community cannot treat Israel as a state that is above the law,” he said.
Earlier comments by Erekat on April 6 were tweeted by the PLO’s official Twitter account. He said, “Such a statement by Netanyahu is not surprising. Israel will continue to brazenly violate international law for as long as the international community will continue to reward Israel with impunity.”

By World Israel News Staff
Speaking at the annual meeting of the Republican Jewish Coalition in Las Vegas on Saturday, U.S. President Donald Trump explained that he decided to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights after a “quickie” lesson on the area’s historical and strategic importance to the Jewish state.
“I said, fellows, do me a favor. Give me a little history, quick. I want to go fast. I got a lot of things I’m working on, China, North Korea. Give me a quickie,” Trump noted, referring to a discussion with head Mideast negotiator Jason Greenblatt, U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, and senior White House adviser Jared Kushner.
Following the discussion, Trump signed a proclamation in March recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, territory the Jewish state captured via war with Arab nations, including Syria.

President Donald Trump says the U.S. has designated Iran’s Revolutionary Guard a “foreign terrorist organization” as part of an effort to increase international pressure on the country.

By Associated Press

President Donald Trump says the U.S. has designated Iran’s Revolutionary Guard a “foreign terrorist organization” as part of an effort to increase international pressure on the country.
It’s an unprecedented move because the U.S. has never before used the designation for an entire foreign government entity.
Trump said in a statement Monday that the move “recognizes the reality” that Iran is a state-sponsored supporter of terrorism and that the Guard is an active participant.
Administration officials have said the step will further isolate Iran and make clear that the U.S. won’t tolerate Iran’s continued support for rebel groups and others that destabilize the Middle East.
But the designation may also have widespread implications for American personnel and policy in the region and elsewhere as Iran has threatened to retaliate.
Two U.S. officials and a congressional aide earlier Monday confirmed the planned move. They were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity. Iran’s foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, seemed to anticipate the designation, saying in a tweet Sunday aimed at President Donald Trump that he “should know better than to be conned into another U.S. disaster.”

Although the terrorist who killed First Sergeant Lubarsky was convicted of murder, Lubarsky’s family is angry he won’t receive the death penalty. 
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
The Hamas supporter who killed First Sergeant Ronen Lubarsky with a marble slab during an IDF mission in an Arab village near Ramallah last May was found guilty by an Israeli military court on Sunday.
“The military court in Judea (the West Bank) convicted the terrorist Islam Yousef Abu Hamid on charges of murdering soldier Ronen Lubarsky,” the Army said in a statement.
Abu Hamid had dropped a 40-pound marble slab onto First Sergeant Lubarsky’s head in an attempt to interfere with an arrest mission the IDF was carrying out in the village of al-Amari.
First Sergeant Lubarsky died in the hospital two days later from his wounds. Abu Hamid was caught a few weeks later and confessed.
Arik Lubarsky, Ronen’s brother, reacted to the conviction by demanding the death penalty.

By JNS.org
A former Cleveland Clinic medical resident fired for making anti-Semitic remarks online, such as tweeting in 2012 that she would “purposely give all the [Jews] the wrong meds,” had a residency offer recently revoked due to her anti-Semitic past.
On Monday, Kern Medical in California released a statement that as of March 15, they had notified Dr. Lara Kollab “that her position as a Post-Graduate-Year 1 resident in the Internal Medicine Residency Program has been withdrawn effective immediately.”
“Kern Medical has determined that Dr. Lara Kollab breached her Match Participant Agreement when she submitted information that was false, misleading, and incomplete to Kern Medical during the interview and match process,” said a statement.
Kollab studied at Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine in New York and was accepted at the Cleveland Clinic as a resident. Her Twitter feed included posts calling Jews “dogs” and disparaging comments about the Holocaust.
She posted five months later on Twitter a message that was translated as “May Allah [end the lives] of the Jews so we stop being forced to go to those unclean ones.”

President Donald Trump warned on Saturday that a Democratic victory in 2020 could “leave Israel out there,” as he highlighted his pro-Israel actions in an effort to make the case for Jewish voters to back his re-election.
Speaking at the annual meeting of the Republican Jewish Coalition, Trump touted his actions to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv and recognition last month of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, a strategic plateau that Israel won from Syria in 1967.

Netanyahu to Trump: I won’t evict ‘a single person’ from Judea and Samaria

By David Jablinowitz, World Israel News Staff
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he told U.S. President Donald Trump that he will not evict even “a single person” from Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria. The prime minister was responding to a question about the Trump peace plan during a Channel 13 interview.
The American plan on Israeli-Palestinian peace is expected to be announced in the coming weeks, in the aftermath of Tuesday’s parliamentary election in Israel. In the lead-up to the vote for the Knesset, Mr. Netanyahu has been granting a series of interviews.
He said that he also insists that Israel maintain “control of all the territory to the west of the Jordan” River.
In a Channel 12 interview, the prime minister was asked, on the heels of the U.S recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, whether the Israeli government would annex Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria.
“You are asking whether we are moving on to the next stage – the answer is yes, we will move to the next stage,” he said. “I am going to extend [Israeli] sovereignty,” Mr. Netanyahu added, saying that he did not distinguish between Israeli communities located in blocs and those which are isolated elsewhere in Judea and Samaria.
Like the Golan Heights, Israel captured Judea and Samaria in the 1967 war, when Arab armies had amassed military forces on their borders with Israel. The Golan was under Syrian control; Judea and Samaria was occupied by Jordan.

Oklahoma City reels from anti-Semitic, white-nationalist graffiti attacks

After attacks on five buildings in two municipalities, including two Democratic Party buildings, police release photos of a female suspect wanted for questioning.
By Elizabeth Kratz, JNS
Over the last week, swastikas, anti-Semitic, anti-LGBT, racist white-nationalist symbols and epithets defaced five public places in Oklahoma City and Norman, starting at the state’s Oklahoma City-based Democratic Party headquarters.
Similar incidences of graffiti were found at the headquarters of the Chickasaw Nation (a federally recognized Native American nation), the Cleveland County Democratic Party headquarters in Norman, a public elementary school and a nonprofit art center.
“Gas the Jews” and “White planet only” were written in black in front of the state’s Democratic headquarters. Swastikas were painted in blue on the glass doors to the building and on the sidewalk in front. The white-nationalist/neo-Nazi symbol “1488,” as well as anti-black and gay slurs, was found in bright-blue spray paint at many of the locations, including at McKinley Elementary School.
At the Firehouse Art Center, a bust sculpture was defaced with the word “Jewess.” Two swastikas were painted over the bust’s eyes, and the forehead was marked with red paint running down, as if it had been shot in the head. A message in the art center’s parking lot also expressed hate for German Chancellor Angela Merkel. The Chickasaw Nation’s building was victim to messages like “Indians will be gassed” and “lampshaded.”
A note referred to as a “manifesto” was found at the door of the state Democratic Party headquarters by a city councilwoman; it was turned over to the police as evidence and not made public. The police have been investigating the incidents as hate crimes and released a photo and video of a female suspect holding a can of spray paint who appeared to be walking away from one of the attacks. An image of her getting into a gray sedan in another location was also captured. The police asked the public for help in identifying the suspect.
Roberta Clark, executive director of the Jewish Federation of Greater Oklahoma City, told JNS that the federation had made public statements about the graffiti on its Facebook page, noting that the organization was “deeply saddened, again, to learn of anti-Semitic and racist vandalism in Norman,” after making earlier statements condemning the graffiti in Oklahoma City.
“Hateful rhetoric has no place in our community or country. When individuals or groups are targeted because of their immutable characteristics, the impact of those words and actions are felt by entire communities,” wrote Clark.
Imam Imad Enchassi, senior imam at the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City, brought his power washer last week to the Democratic headquarters to clean up the anti-Semitic messages. “I know what hate feels like and this is hate,” Enchassi told Fox25 News.

Even competition generated by the breakup of the Joint Arab List is not generating interest among Israeli Arabs to go to the polls on Election Day.
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
According to a poll conducted last week in the Israeli Arab sector, nearly half of eligible Arab voters will not go to the polls on April 9, Israel Hayom reported Sunday. If the numbers hold true, this would be a significant drop from the last elections in 2015, when 63 percent of Arab Israelis voted.
The reason the respondents gave for not voting was “lack of interest in politics.” This has given rise to anxiety especially in the United Arab List-Balad party, which has been teetering on the election threshold according to recent polls. The conservative Islamist United Arab List (known by the Hebrew acronym Ra’am) and pan-Arab nationalist Balad are what remains of the Joint List, a combination of four Arab parties that ran as one in 2015.
Although it went on to win 13 seats in those elections, making it the third largest faction in the Knesset, the Joint List broke apart ahead of this election when one of its leaders, Ahmed Tibi, head of the Ta’al party, saw polls showing he was more popular than the Joint List’s present chief, Ayman Odeh.
Although there are more than half a dozen Arab parties running for Knesset, the two lists – the Hadash-Ta’al and the Ra’am-Balad list – are the only ones that have a realistic chance of entering the Knesset.
However, the survey shows that the competition has not made Arab-Israeli voters more interested in heading to the polls.
“If the Arab public won’t vote, we’ll have a double tragedy – the racists will get stronger and the supporters of equality could be erased from the Knesset. The results of the survey prove that despair and apathy could win,” said Amnon Beeri-Soliciano and Dr. Thabet Abu Rass, joint directors of the nonprofit Abraham Fund Initiatives, which describes itself as seeking to advance Arab-Jewish cooperation in Israel.
A week earlier, a poll conducted by Dr. Aes Atrash of the Yapa Institute had been only slightly more optimistic, with half the Arab respondents saying they’d go vote. Dr. Atrash told the daily Ha’aretz that “The two lists can’t create momentum and a campaign with clear messages to the public. No doubt the disbanding of the Joint List contributed to the disappointment and sense of alienation.”
Contributing to the predicted lack of turn-out are those who won’t vote for ideological reasons.
Pro-boycott activists don’t want to help “the body that actively tries to erase our Palestinian identity,” as one Arab student in Haifa explained to Israel Hayom on Thursday.
Others are calling to stay away from the polls in protest of the Nation-State Law passed on May 1, 2018, which defined Israel as the national home of the Jewish people. Arabs and other minorities considered this law an attack on their rights.

Three days before Israeli elections, the sitting prime minister pledged to annex Israeli towns in Judea and Samaria, where close to half a million Jews live.
By World Israel News Staff and AP
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he will begin annexing Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria if he is re-elected to a fourth straight term. Such a move would be a departure from Israeli government policy.
Netanyahu made the remarks during an interview with Channel 12 in reference to the recent U.S. recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights. When he was asked about annexing Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria, he said “we’re on the way,” adding that “the next term [in office] will be fateful.”

Notwithstanding ongoing Egyptian-brokered ceasefire talks with Israel, Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar claimed his terror group was capable of forcing Israelis to flee Tel Aviv.
By World Israel News Staff
The Hamas terror group’s Gaza-based leader Yahya Sinwar claimed Saturday his forces would  inflict serious losses on Israel if Egypt’s current efforts to broker a ceasefire with the Jewish state fail and war breaks out.
“If the Gaza Strip is dragged into war, Israel will suffer. It will not only have to evacuate the communities around the Strip, but also Ashdod and Ashkelon and even Tel Aviv,” Sinwar commented to Gaza officials, reported Times of Israel.
Sinwar’s comments arrive as Egypt continues to try to coax the terror group into a truce with Israel.
While Sinwar just a day earlier claimed talks were progressing, he commented to Al-Aqsa TV on Saturday, “Our fingers are on the trigger and they will remain pressed against it in order to protect our people. We will be the sword and shield.”
For the past year, Hamas has orchestrated massive violent riots on Israel’s border with Gaza on a weekly basis, during which Gazans shoot at IDF troops, hurl Molotov cocktails, plant IEDs, attempt infiltration, and launch airborne incendiary devices into Israeli territory.

 April 6, 2019
Oman’s foreign minister told an audience in Jordan on Saturday that Palestinians should communicate to Israel that it’s not under threat.
By World Israel News Staff
At the World Economic Forum in Jordan on Saturday, Oman’s Foreign Minister Yusuf bin Alawi declared that Palestinians should “help Israel” to no longer feel threatened, reported the Associated Press.
While Oman doesn’t maintain formal relations with Israel, ties between the nations are warming quickly. In October, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a visit to Oman, where he was welcomed with open arms.
“The West has offered Israel political, economic and military support and it now holds all the means of power… but despite that it fears for its future as a non-Arab country surrounded by 400 million Arabs,” added Alawi, Arutz Sheva reported.
While Alawi stopped short of advocating official recognition of Israel, he explained, “I believe that we Arabs must . . . try to ease those fears that Israel has through initiatives and real deals between us and Israel.”
“[W]e want [Israel] themselves to feel that there are no threats to their future,” he added.
Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi quickly dismissed the remarks, invoking the “occupation” trope as the source of Israel’s problems with the Arab world.
In February, Netanyahu met with Alawi at a conference in Warsaw that attracted officials from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain, which was unofficially designed to address the regional threat posed by Iran.

The Trump administration is preparing to designate Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a foreign terrorist organization, according to the Wall Street Journal, citing U.S. officials.
President Trump is seen as strongly supportive of the new initiative. The move would come nearly a year after the president withdrew from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, reached between Tehran and six world powers, including the U.S. Obama administration.

Report: Trump’s ‘Deal of the Century’ Rolls Out on Israel’s Birthday, ‘Slap in Face’ to Arabs?
 April 4, 2019
he planned date, which coincides with Israel’s 71st Independence Day would be a “slap in the face,” says a Hamas official.
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
On Thursday, Al-Khaleej Online reports that President Donald Trump will roll out his long-awaited Middle East peace plan on May 15, which also happens to be Israel’s Independence Day.
According to the daily, based in the United Arab Emirates, the ‘Deal of the Century’ is ready, and even includes the willingness of certain Arab countries to fund the economic side of the proposed agreement.
These countries are believed to be Saudi Arabia and other wealthy Arab Gulf States, such as the UAE.
According to the report, a Hamas official reacted sharply upon learning the date of the roll-out.
“Setting the date of the declaration on the anniversary of the Nakba is a slap in the face to all those who still see America as a fair mediator in resolving the conflict,” he said.
The Nakba, or “Catastrophe,” is the Arabs’ term for the establishment of the State of Israel on May 15, 1948.

Netanyahu: Capturing Gaza is last option, but it’s ‘on the table’
 April 4, 2019

 
Netanyahu: Capturing Gaza is last option, but it’s ‘on the table’Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (AP/Debbie Hill)
“The forces are in place,” but taking over Gaza “is the last option, not the first,” said Prime Minister Netanyahu in a public radio interview.
By World Israel News Staff
“All options, including entering and conquering Gaza, are on the table, in accordance with what is good for the State of Israel,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday.
“It could be that we will be forced to embark on a broad military campaign in Gaza,” the prime minister said in an interview with Kan public radio. “The forces are in place, but that is the last option, not the first,” he added.
Pressure has been mounting on Mr. Netanyahu from within his cabinet to take stronger action against the ongoing, and at times massive, air attacks from the Gaza Strip on southern Israel. Rockets have also been fired recently into the center of the country.
In November, Avigdor Liberman resigned as defense minister, complaining of what he considered a soft response to the attacks from Gazan terror groups. Mr. Netanyahu has been serving as defense minister since Mr. Liberman’s resignation.
Education and Diaspora Affairs Minister Naftali Bennett wanted the defense portfolio when Mr. Liberman quit and says that he sees himself as the best candidate for the job after next week’s Knesset election.
“We have done much in Gaza, but we haven’t done one thing: We haven’t conquered it,” the prime minister told Kan, explaining that such a move would mean putting “two million Palestinians under our control,” unless some Arab country would take control instead.
“I have spoken with many Arab leaders about this possibility,” but none of them were interested in such a plan, he said.
Israel captured the Gaza Strip in the 1967 war but withdrew in 2005.
In 2007, the Hamas terror group overthrew the Palestinian Authority in the Strip.
“I am not engaging in needless wars. I want to use the force that is necessary and I am willing to pay the price, but only when it is necessary,” Mr. Netanyahu said in the interview.
Egypt has been mediating between Israel and Hamas on a temporary cessation of violence as Israel has been encouraging an effort on the part of the United Nations and Qatar to improve the standard of living of Gazans with the hope that better socio-economic conditions would discourage terror.
“I want every mother and father to know that I am not sending their children to war without exhausting all other options,” said the prime minister.

Exposed: Anti-Israel hackers can kill Israeli patients with medical cyber-attacks
“Deliberately tampering with the scans could aid insurance fraud, ransomware, cyberterrorism or even murder,” say Ben Gurion University researchers
By World Israel News Staff
Hackers can access a patient’s 3-D medical scans to add or remove images of malignant tumors, putting patients at risk of misdiagnoses, according to cybersecurity researchers at the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU).
The hackers said that they have conducted a survey which shows that altered scans successfully deceived both radiologists and the artificial intelligence algorithms which are used to assist in reaching a diagnosis.
A 3-D CT (computerized tomography) scan combines a series of X-Ray images taken from different angles around the body and uses computer processing to create cross-sectional images (slices) of the bones, blood vessels, and soft tissues, the university explains in a statement on the research.
CT scan images provide more detailed information than standard X-Rays and are used to diagnose cancer, heart disease, infectious diseases, and more. An MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scan is similar but uses powerful magnetic fields to diagnose bone, joint, ligament, and cartilage conditions, it adds.

Israel’s first ever spacecraft, Beresheet (or, “Genesis”) will perform a decisive maneuver today at 5:15 p.m. Israel time as it makes its way toward the lunar surface.
The spacecraft’s motors will be operated for a lengthy six minutes in order to slow its speed to enable it to be captured by the moon. This will be its most decisive maneuver since it launched into space aboard a Falcom SpaceX rocket on Feb. 22.

The entire left-wing is fired up to vote, Netanyahu says, while the right is indifferent – exactly the opposite of 2015.
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sounded a loud warning to his base to get out and vote next week in an exclusive interview he granted Israel Hayom on Thursday.
“We are very close to losing the battle,” he said. “We discovered a factor we did not notice until last night…that there is a reversal here of 2015.”
In the last elections, he explained, the left stayed home while the right came out in droves.
“Today the opposite is happening. The right is complacent and the left is mobilized to vote. When asked in the polls how many intend to vote, the left gets 100 percent. Not 99.2 – one hundred percent. Everyone is going. And on the right we see a considerable percentage below that (about 80%).”

But that didn’t stop French supermarket chain Auchan from selling money belts with the Nazi insignia in Poland.
A supermarket spokesperson says it was an “oversight” and apologized. The chain promised to pull all the belts from the shelves.

By Associated Press
A humanitarian emergency is unfolding in the camp in northeast Syria overwhelmed with people who fled the last battlefields of Islamic State extremists — and a top priority is helping hundreds of unaccompanied children return home, the head of the international Red Cross said Tuesday.
Peter Maurer, president of the International Committee of the Red Cross, who visited the al-Hol camp in Hassakeh province on March 21, told a small group of reporters that it was established in the 1990s to accommodate about 5,000 Iraqi refugees and is now overcrowded with between 80,000 and 100,000 people.

Omar criticized Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a series of tweets on Tuesday. 
By David Isaac, World Israel News
On Tuesday, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) unleashed a torrent of criticism against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with over 10 tweets on Twitter.  In his televised speech to the AIPAC Policy Conference yesterday, Netanyahu had alluded to anti-Semitic comments she had made in February.
“Netanyahu and the GOP may want to make this about one Muslim-American refugee’s views, but I am not alone. From @jstreetdotorg to @ifnotnow, @PeaceNowUS @moveon and more—there are so many who have spoken out on this issue,” Omar said in one of her tweets.
She hashtagged several groups, three of which are on the fringes of the American Jewish community and which support the creation of a Palestinian state in Judea and Samaria.

BDS Boomerang: Anti-Israel activist triggers Dutch run on Israeli wine

BDS Boomerang: Anti-Israel activist triggers Dutch run on Israeli wineDutch supermarket chain Hema saw its stock of Israeli Efrat wine sell out after a BDS campaigner's boycott effort backfired. (Flash90/Matanya Tausig)
Anti-Israeli activist’s tweet calling out a supermarket for stocking Israeli wine leads to massive sales.
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Israel supporters claimed a resounding victory over the Boycott, Divest and Sanctions (BDS) movement Wednesday as a Dutch anti-Israel activist’s plan to pressure a supermarket to take an Israeli wine off its shelves led to the bottles flying off – straight to consumers’ homes.
BDS activist Mieke Zagt took to Twitter Monday to ask Hema, one of the largest supermarket chains in the country, why it was selling Efrat wine from “the Judean Hills.”
“Is this possible? Efrat and Judean Hills are in occupied Palestinian land. Efrat is an illegal Israeli colony. Can you verify the origin? #hema #notAgainAye!??,” Zagt wrote, attaching a picture of the bottles.
Zagt was factually inaccurate on a number of counts. Despite the wine’s name, it’s produced well within the original 1949 boundaries of the State of Israel, which the vast majority of countries, including the E.U., does not consider disputed territory.
Several pro-Israel activists took up the BDS supporter’s challenge and tweeted out a call to buy the wine, along with the hashtag #TipFromMieke and #BDSFail.
Hidde J. van Koningsveld, of the Center for Information and Documentation Israel, a Holland-based group that defends the Jewish State and tracks anti-Semitic incidents in the Netherlands, posted the web address of the supermarket chain so consumers could check which stores still had the wine in stock.

Dershowitz: Jews must never be afraid to use their well-earned power
 March 27, 2019

 
Dershowitz: Jews must never be afraid to use their well-earned powerAttorney Alan Dershowitz (Youtube)
 Print  Email  41 Comments

 
“When Jewish power and influence are used in the cause of peace and justice — as it is today — there is nothing to be ashamed of. It should be a source of pride,” Dershowitz said.

By Alan M. Dershowitz, The Gatestone Institute

Recent comments by members of Congress and their defenders once again raise the question: Are Jews too powerful? This question, which has never been raised about other groups, manifests a double standard against the Jewish people. It must not be ignored. Here is my answer.

When I hear that Jews are too powerful, my response is, we are not powerful enough. When I hear that AIPAC is too influential a lobby, I say it must become even more influential. When I hear that Jews contribute too much money to support pro-Israel causes, I say we must contribute more. When I hear that Jews control the media, I ask “Why is so much of the media so anti-Israel?” When I hear that Jews have too much influence on the outcome of elections, I say we need to increase our influence. We aren’t doing enough. We must do more.


 
Jews have contributed enormously — disproportionately — to America’s success. Along with other immigrants, Jews have helped change our country for the better: academically, scientifically, economically, politically, militarily, medically, legally, technologically and in so many other ways. We have earned the right to act as first-class citizens. No other group is ever accused of having too much power and influence. That false claim — dating back to times and places where Jews had little or no influence — is an anti-Semitic trope that tells us more about the anti-Semites who invoke it that it does about the Jews.

History has proven that Jews need more power and influence than other groups to secure their safety. During the 1930s and early 1940s Jews had morality on their side, but they lacked the power and influence to save six million of their brothers and sisters from systematic murder. If Israel had existed then, with the powerful army it now has, the history of European Jewry might well have been different. If Jews had more political power in the United States during that time, the doors of our nation would not have been shut to our brothers and sisters seeking asylum from Nazism.

In the Middle East, Israel must have more military power than all of its enemies and potential enemies combined. As Benjamin Netanyahu wisely put it: “The truth is that if Israel were to put down its arms there would be no more Israel. If the Arabs were to put down their arms there would be no more war.” Israel therefore must maintain, with or without the help of the United States, its qualitative military superiority in the region. And the region of its enemies has now expanded to Iran and Turkey, two Muslim, non-Arab, extreme anti-Israel nations with powerful armies. So Israel must get stronger, not weaker, despite its current military superiority.

Elie Wiesel once said that the lesson of the Holocaust is that, “We must believe the threats of our enemies, more than the promises of our friends.” For me, an additional lesson is that Israel and the Jewish people must be more powerful than their enemies.

Ahmed Bhamji told the rally: “I feel Mossad is behind this.” A bystander responded: “It’s the truth. Israel is behind this.” 
By Benjamin Kerstein, Algemeiner
The chairman of a New Zealand mosque was caught on video telling a rally in the city of Auckland that the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad and “Zionist business” were behind the recent shooting attack on two mosques in Christchurch.
Fifty people were killed and dozens more wounded in the attacks on March 15. Australian citizen Brenton Tarrant, a white supremacist, was arrested and charged with the crime.
According to New Zealand news outlet Newshub, the Saturday rally was intended to memorialize the victims of the attacks, but at one point Ahmed Bhamji, chairman of the Mt. Roskill Masjid E Umar mosque, stated, “I really want to say one thing today. Do you think this guy was alone? … I want to ask you, where did he get the funding from?
“I stand here and I say I have a very very strong suspicion that there’s some group behind him and I am not afraid to say I feel Mossad is behind this,” he added.
A bystander then responds, “It’s the truth. Israel is behind this. That’s right!”
After the video of the speech was posted on Twitter, the New Zealand Jewish community quickly responded.

‘Tremendous risk’ for right to choose small parties over Likud, Hotovely says

‘Tremendous risk’ for right to choose small parties over Likud, Hotovely saysDeputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely (Courtesy)
Likud’s Tzipi Hotovely, ideologically a religious Zionist, urges voters to choose Likud in order to prevent the left from winning the upcoming election.
By Atara Beck, World Israel News
Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely addressed a pre-election event in Beit Shemesh, urging them, as religious Zionists, to vote for Likud rather than the smaller religious parties.
Hotovely, describing herself as “Modern Orthodox,” said she was offered the opportunity on a number of occasions to join the Jewish Home party but declined, instead staying with Likud.

“I don’t believe in the system of serving in a minority group on the national arena,” she explained, adding that it may have been relevant in the early years of the State of Israel, “but not today.”
The Modern Orthodox population is active in the wider Israeli society, she said. They serve in the IDF and are successful professionally and “should also have an effect politically on the national level.”
“The big question is: Who’s going to be the next prime minister,” she continued, noting that Likud could lose to the left if the votes go to the smaller parties instead. It’s not a given that Likud will remain in power if that that happens, she stressed.
“It’s a tremendous risk now to vote for a small party,” she warned.
Blue and White: an ‘IKEA party’
“The left is trying time after time to build a new opposition, an alternative to [Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu,” she said. “Bringing in three army generals to the new Blue and White party is something new.”
She referred to Blue and White, headed by former IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz and former journalist Yair Lapid and which includes former IDF top generals Moshe Ya’alon and Gabi Ashkenazi, as an “IKEA party,” saying it was being built by choosing different pieces and putting them together.
Hotovely noted the “incredible pressure from the Europeans to give up Judea and Samaria. Lapid and Gantz are saying the disengagement will happen again,” she said, referring to Gantz’s defense of the pullout from Gaza in 2005 and apparent support for withdrawals from Judea and Samaria in a statement in February.
“Terror bases are built wherever we withdraw,” she declared. “Netanyahu has the guts to stand in front of the world and say we’re not doing this anymore.”

EU rejects Israeli sovereignty over the Golan

EU rejects Israeli sovereignty over the GolanEuropean Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini (AP /Rahmat Gul)
Following the U.S. proclamation accepting Israeli sovereignty, Federica Mogherini says the E.U. position “has not changed.”
By World Israel News Staff
European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said Wednesday that the E.U. does not recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.
Her statement comes on the heels of Monday’s proclamation by U.S. President Donald Trump, recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the territory, captured by Israel in the 1967 war.
“The position of the European Union as regards the status of the Golan Heights has not changed,” said Mogherini’s statement.
“In line with the international law and U.N. Security Council resolutions 242 and 497, the European Union does not recognize Israeli sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights,” she said.
Her statement followed Tuesday’s announcement by the U.N. ambassadors from the five E.U. members of the U.N. Security Council – France, Germany, Britain, Poland, and Belgium –  that they do not recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan.
They said: “Annexation of territory by force is prohibited under international law,” and any unilateral border changes go against “the rules-based international order and the U.N. Charter.”
The statement concluded: “We raise our strong concerns about broader consequences of recognizing illegal annexation and also about the broader regional consequences.” Israel has countered that on the eve of the 1967 war, Arab armies were mobilizing their forces on Israel’s borders and that Israel’s capture of the territory was not an offensive action.
The E.U. delegation in Israel had reacted against the U.S. move already on Friday after Trump initially tweeted that time had come to recognize Israel’s sovereignty on the Heights, but prior to his signing of the proclamation at the White House.

Netanyahu coalition expands lead, pulls ahead in election polling

Netanyahu coalition expands lead, pulls ahead in election pollingPrime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (Marc Israel Sellem/POOL)
A partnership of right-wing and religious parties gives the incumbent prime minister 65 seats in the 120-seat Knesset, according to a poll announced on public broadcasting.  
By World Israel News Staff
A public opinion poll just released by Israeli public broadcaster Kan is showing an increasing lead, ahead of the April 9 Knesset election, of parties which are considered likely to join a government coalition headed by the incumbent, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The prime minister’s own party, the Likud, would not finish first, according to the survey, conducted for Kan by the Direct Polls company.
Blue and White, headed by former military chief Benny Gantz, would win 30 seats in the 120-member Israeli parliament, and the Likud would earn 28 seats.
However, the total number of seats of parties considered natural Netanyahu partners reaches 65 in this new poll.
Previous polls which had shown that the outgoing government partners would not garner a parliamentary majority prompted Netanyahu to urge smaller right-wing parties to run together in the April vote.
The Union of Right-Wing Parties, an electoral list which merged at the behest of Netanyahu, would earn five seats, according to the latest Direct Polls survey.

Netanyahu rival is good-looking, on that Israeli pundits agreeBenny Gantz, leader of the Blue and White joint list, attends a meeting with members of the Druze community, northern Israel, 
March 7, 2019. 
Benny Gantz, the former Israeli general turned politician, is tall, blue-eyed and good looking. On that everyone can agree. 
By Adi Pick, CTech
Standing tall at 191 centimeters, the former Israeli general turned politician Benny Gantz can become one of the world’s tallest leaders if elected, as he is taller than both U.S. President Trump and Canada’s Trudeau.
While a coalition led by four term incumbent Benjamin Netanyahu still seems like a likely result of the election to take place April 9, Gantz, as some pundits have it, has a major electoral asset: his stature and good looks.
Israeli journalist Ayala Hasson described Gantz as a “towering, blue-eyed” figure.
Speaking on a Channel 10 broadcast, Israeli journalist and political commentator Raviv Drucker said Gantz is the “most handsome” candidate Israel has seen. “He looks so handsome, he looks like a Harrison Ford, and that’s an asset for his campaign,” Druker went on to say.
In an October broadcast, Channel 10 reporter Miki Michaeli called Gantz “a very, very handsome man,” who “may get women’s votes.”
In February, Israeli satirical show Gav Hauma aired a sketch titled “10 ways Gantz can fix Israel’s problems with his good looks.”

The IDF delivered a “very, very powerful” blow against Hamas, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at Andrews Air Force Base in Washington, D.C. before flying back to Israel.
Israel struck numerous terrorist targets across the Gaza Strip, including the offices of Hamas’ leader, Ismail Haniyeh. Israel stopped its attacks around 6:00 a.m. on Tuesday, according to reports.
“Hamas should know that we will not hesitate to enter and take the necessary steps,” Netanyahu said. The prime minister would not answer reporters questions about the possibility of a full-scale ground incursion into the Gaza Strip, Ynet reports.

The missile, loaded with dozens of kilograms of explosives, landed at 5:20 a.m. Monday. It was sheer luck that any of the seven sleeping people heard the warning siren that gave the community 90 seconds to reach shelter.
The Jerusalem Post reported that the son, Daniel, had fallen asleep on the living-room couch and was the only one to hear the wailing sound blasting over the loudspeakers. He raced to wake up his parents, little sister and wife. He then scooped up his two-year-old and five-month old before entering the reinforced safe room, leaving the door open for the others.

The father was home alone when a rocket directly hit the house but did not explode during a missile barrage from Gaza Monday night.
By World Israel News Staff
After 9 p.m. on Monday night, a barrage of rockets was fired towards southern Israel from the Gaza Strip. One of them hit the home of Shlomo Moskowitz in the town of Sderot.
Residents of the town have been at the receiving end of many attacks over the years, and Moskowitz recalled a rocket that had landed nearby in a previous conflict, which damaged his own home.
But this time, his house sustained a direct hit.
Thankfully, he was home alone and the rocket did not explode.
“I was sitting in the living room,” he says of the attack on his home. “I heard the red alert [siren] and immediately ran to the [armored] safe room. Suddenly, there was a powerful boom.”
He says that he waited for several minutes before leaving the safe room, as per the instructions of the IDF Home Front Command

“I came out to the living room. I see the whole living room engulfed in smoke,” he described afterward.
“I went up to the second floor,” he continued, “walked into my son’s room and it was destroyed.”
It could have been worse.
He says that as he searched the home, he suddenly saw “the missile lying on the floor unexploded.”
Moskowitz says he called the police and that security forces arrived en masse.
“We are strong,” he said. “We have no other land; we will continue to be here. No one can break us,” he insisted.

Trump formally recognizes Israeli sovereignty over Golan Heights

With Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by his side at the White House, Trump made formal the U.S.’ recognition of Israeli control over the Golan Heights.
By Associated Press and World Israel News Staff
Standing alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House, President Donald Trump signed a proclamation on Monday recognizing Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights, making formal a move he announced in a tweet last week.

The president said it was time for the U.S. to take the step after 52 years of Israeli control of the strategic highlands on the border with Syria.
Netanyahu had pressed for such recognition for months. Trump’s action gives him a political boost weeks before Israeli elections.
Israel captured the Golan from Syria in the 1967 Six-Day War but the international community has refused  to recognize Israeli’s sovereignty over the territory. During the war, Syria and three other Arab nations attacked the Jewish state.
“Today, aggressive action by Iran and terrorist groups in southern Syria, including Hezbollah, continue to make the Golan Heights a potential launching ground for attacks against Israel — very violent attacks,” Trump said.
“This should have been done numerous presidents ago,” Trump said.
The two leaders met as the Israeli military was striking Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip in response to a rocket that hit a house in Israel wounding seven people.
“Israel is responding forcefully to this wanton aggression,” said Netanyahu, who planned to return to Israel to manage the attack following his meeting with Trump and other U.S. officials, including Vice President Mike Pence.
He added, “Israel will not tolerate this. I will not tolerate it.”
In a speech earlier Monday, Pence said the rocket attack “proves that [the] Hamas [terror group] is not a partner for peace.”

Arab states condemned U.S. President Donald Trump’s declaration, which he signed Monday, recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights. Israel captured the territory from Syria in the 1967 war after Arab armies had mobilized forces near their borders with Israel.
Syria’s foreign ministry called the U.S. decision a “blatant attack on the sovereignty and territorial integrity” of Syria.

Using new technology, McDonald’s restaurants can vary their electronic menus depending on factors such as the weather.
By World Israel News Staff
McDonald’s has purchased Israeli company Dynamic Yield, which develops personalization and decision logic technology. The reported price is an estimated $300 million, more than NIS 1 billion. The two companies did not publish the exact amount of the transaction,
“Today we are thrilled to announce McDonald’s Corporation, the leading global foodservice retailer, has signed an agreement to acquire Dynamic Yield Ltd.,” said Dynamic Yield CEO Liad Agmon.
“This is great news for Dynamic Yield and McDonald’s customers, as well as personalization practitioners everywhere,” said Agmon.
“Dynamic Yield will play a critical role in McDonald’s digital transformation, allowing it to become even more focused on the customer by deploying our technology in outdoor digital Drive-Thru menu displays, as well as other digital customer experience touchpoints, such as self-order kiosks and the McDonald’s Global Mobile App,” he added.
McDonald’s Corp., in its largest acquisition in 20 years, is buying a decision-logic technology company to better personalize menus in its digital push, reported Bloomberg.

“When Omri Mendellevich, our CTO, and I started Dynamic Yield seven years ago,” said Agmon, “the premise of what we were building was based on customer-centric organizations making individualized experiences and personalization a strategic priority. Our acquisition by McDonald’s, one of the most iconic and beloved brands of our time, is truly an endorsement of that vision.”
The world’s biggest restaurant chain is spending more than $300 million on Dynamic Yield Ltd., reported Bloomberg, citing a person familiar with the matter.
With the new technology, McDonald’s restaurants can vary their electronic menu boards’ display of items, depending on factors such as the weather – more coffee on cold days and McFlurries on hot days, for example – and the time of day or regional preferences, according to the report. The menus will also suggest add-on items to customers, it said.
Since taking the helm in 2015, McDonald’s CEO Steve Easterbrook has pushed technology – including self-order kiosks, digital menus boards and delivery – to boost sales and help McDonald’s stand out among rivals, said Bloomberg.

Pakistan: Mentally disabled Christians charged with blasphemy

Pakistan: Mentally disabled Christians charged with blasphemyProtest against persecution of Christians in Pakistan at UN in Geneva, March 26, 2018. (Youtube)
 Print  Email  10 Comments
The irony is that Muslims who commit violence against Christians are often acquitted on the claim that they are mentally disturbed.
By Raymond Ibrahim, The Gatestone Institute
“A mentally ill Pakistani Christian man has been charged with blasphemy,” the Pakistan Christian Post reported a few days ago. Stephen Masih was arrested after Muhammad Rafiq and Muhammad Imran told Muhammad Mudassar — a renowned hafiz (one who has memorized the entire Koran) —that the Christian “had made derogatory remarks against the Prophet Muhammad.”
Masih, 38, is unmarried and lives with his mother and sister. After contracting typhoid fever as a child and receiving little medical attention due to his family’s impoverishment, the family noticed changes in his behavior; he was eventually taken to a “doctor [who] declared him mentally disabled.”
On March 10, Masih got into a loud quarrel with his mother and sister. A female Muslim neighbor got involved, at which point, “Stephen started arguing with her as he was out of his senses.” Verbal quarrels with other Muslim neighbors escalated, and before long “a few Muslim men… pulled Stephen out of his house and started beating him brutally, gradually joined by others.”
Police eventually arrived, only to arrest the mentally unstable Christian, on the testimony of a local cleric, Muhammad Mudassar.
Afterwards, Masih’s sister Alia “went to the police station. She says her brother only shouted and used abusive language against the local ladies but did not utter any derogatory remarks against the Prophet Muhammad, but the police didn’t believe her.”
Death penalty possible
If convicted, Stephen Masih could face the death penalty. According to Section 295-C of Pakistan’s penal code:

Trump: Time for US to recognize Israeli sovereignty in Golan Heights

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.

“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.

“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.

“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.

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.

First Sergeant Gal Qeidan, a combat soldier in the Artillery Corps, was killed on Sunday by a Palestinian terrorist.
By Aryeh Savir/TPS 
The soldier who was killed Sunday morning in the terror attack at the Ariel Junction in Samaria is First Sergeant Gal Qeidan, a combat soldier in the 334th Battalion in the Artillery Corps.
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?
 March 16, 2019

 
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 rule

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.

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 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.

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
 March 14, 2019
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.”

SodaStream CEO buying into cannabis sectorDaniel Birnbaum, CEO of SodaStream (Flash90)
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.

A Palestinian man attempting to carry out a stabbing attack in the Hebron area has been shot and killed by IDF soldiers, said the Israeli military spokesman.
“IDF fighters identified a terrorist armed with a knife running toward them,” said the IDF statement.
“The fighters had forced back the terrorist who had been running toward a civilian structure nearby as he held the knife,” said the statement. “The fighters fired at the terrorist, thwarted the attack, and he was killed. There were no casualties among our forces.”

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.

Freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic remarks have made her one of the most talked about Members of Congress, including the praise heaped upon her recently by White supremacist and former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke.
“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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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 U.S. says the move is meant to improve efficiency, but Palestinian leaders see it as recognizing Israel’s control over all of Jerusalem.
By David Jablinowitz, World Israel News
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.”

Israel placed eighth in ‘power’ ranking by prestigious US magazine

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.

Two Israeli soldiers were wounded in a car-ramming attack on Monday morning.
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.

“This morning IDF soldiers acted quickly and eliminated the terrorists who threatened to run them over. We send our best wishes for a quick recovery to the officer who was wounded and will do everything to speed up the demolition of the homes of these murderers, such as the murderer of Ori Ansbacher,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated.

New Right leader to Netanyahu: ‘Stop being afraid of terrorists’

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.
