Israeli Ambassador to UN slams Poland’s Holocaust law

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

By: Margot Dudkevitch, World Israel News

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hamas calls Trump ‘mentally ill’ after US blacklists arch-terrorist

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


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

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

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

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

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

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



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

By: Margot Dudkevitch, World Israel News

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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





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

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

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



Haim Gouri, legendary Israeli fighter and poet, dies at 94

Haim Gouri, legendary Israeli fighter and poet, dies at 94Israeli writer Haim Gouri (Hadas Parush/Flash90)
https://worldisraelnews.com/haim-gouri-legendary-israeli-fighter-poet-dies-94/?Haim Gouri, poet, warrior and founding father of the State of Israel, has died. He was 94.
By: TPS and World Israel News Staff
Haim Gouri, one of Israel’s definitive poets, authors, filmmakers and journalists died Wednesday. He was 94.
Gouri was one of the first major Hebrew-language authors of the modern Israeli period. After fighting in the pre-state Hagana militia and the IDF’s legendary Palmach unit during the War of Independence, he emerged as a leading voice of Israel’s founding generation.
In all, Gouri published 12 books of poetry, 10 books of prose and many newspaper and magazine articles. He is perhaps best known for his coverage of the trial of Nazi criminal Adolf Eichmann, which he published in the book Facing the Glass Booth: The Jerusalem Trial of Adolf Eichmann.
Gouri fiercely defended his connection to Zionism and expressed his concerns for the State of Israel.
In 1988 he was awarded the Israel Prize for Poetry.
Noting that Gouri died on Tu B’Shevat, the Hebrew calendar’s equivalent to Arbor Day, Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein said he would name a section for tree planting in the Knesset Archaeological Garden after the late author.
Culture Minister Miri Regev eulogized Gouri as a “giant” of Israel’s founding generation who helped herald and document the rebirth of the Jewish people in the Land of Israel.
Making reference to one of Gouri’s best-known works, Regev said “Gouri will forever remain a ‘flower of fire’ of our national rebirth in the State of Israel. May his memory be a blessing.”
Education Minister Naftali Bennett added that Gouri symbolized a spirit of “we, not just me.”
“His poems will continue to send a shudder through the hearts of Israeli youth,” Bennett added.




Las Vegas massacre: court error unmasks person of interest

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

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

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

At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Trump and Netanyahu will try convincing skeptical European leaders that time is running out to change the Iran nuclear deal before the US leader “tears it up.” Can they succeed in their mission?
By Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is not a ‘lone wolf’ in Davos, Switzerland, this week, where he is trying to convince world leaders, especially from Europe, that there must be changes in the nuclear deal reached between Iran and the world powers in 2015. This time Netanyahu has the President of the United States firmly at his side with a unified message about the deal, which is “fix it or nix it.”

Bennett: Israeli schools to teach about Polish complicity in HolocaustMinister of Education Naftali Bennett (Miriam Alster/Flash90)
Israeli students will learn about nations that helped in the “Final Solution” in reaction to a proposed Polish law making it a crime to refer to Polish death camps.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
All Israeli students in state-run schools, Grades 7-12, will get two extra hours of history instruction this week that will concentrate on the part played by Nazi-conquered European nations in the German attempt to liquidate the Jewish people during World War II. The purpose of the lesson is educate the students about how the collaboration between ordinary people and officials when it came to anti-Jewish policies and the Nazis who had taken over their countries.
Naftali Bennett, Minister of Education, made it clear that the timing was not accidental. Although Holocaust Remembrance Day is marked in Israel on the 27th day of the Hebrew month of Nisan (which usually falls in April), along with extensive educational programming, International Holocaust Day was on Saturday.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday met with a long list of leaders from across the globe on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland, where he discussed various issues of Israeli national interest.
Netanyahu has been campaigning for the reexamination and modification of the nuclear agreement with Iran. In Davos, he called on world leaders to take the opportunity created in the wake of President Donald Trump’s declaration that he would withdraw from the deal unless it was fixed.

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

Jerusalem court sentences rock-throwers who killed Israeli driver

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

Poland: 3 Neo-Nazis arrested for Hitler birthday event

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

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

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

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

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

At least five Iranian protesters died in custody after they were arrested by authorities in the latest round of anti-government protests that swept the Islamic Republic last month.
Iranian Member of Parliament Mahmoud Sadeghi said approximately 3,700 protesters were arrested by security forces during the demonstrations that lasted several weeks. Writing on his Twitter account, Sadeghi said one of the detained protesters died in custody after being forced, along with other prisoners, to take pills that they said made them sick.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday announced the recipients of the 2017 Fake News Awards, a faux accolade he established to shame news outlets he says are biased against him.
“2017 was a year of unrelenting bias, unfair news coverage, and even downright fake news. Studies have shown that over 90% of the media’s coverage of President Trump is negative,” the awards’ description read.
The New York Times’ Paul Krugman came in first place for claiming on the day of Trump’s victory that the economy would never recover. The Dow Jones has in fact hit record high numbers, crossing the 26,000 point line for the first time ever this week.

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

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

Coalition ‘crisis’ in Netanyahu government is ‘just electioneering,’ says political analyst
 January 22, 2018
A top political scientist tells World Israel News that Netanyahu can weather the current coalition crisis surrounding the mini-market law and may lead his government to a full term.

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

Throughout time, aggressors knew when they were winning and when they were losing. By contrast, Israel’s Muslim Arab enemies do not behave like your typical aggressors. The more Israel’s enemies lose, the more aggressive and demanding they become.
Japan’s hubris that led to the attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941 was depleted when America dropped the nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945. The difference between Pearl Harbor and Hiroshima was that the balance of power had shifted dramatically in America’s favor.

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman instructed Army Radio on Tuesday morning to refrain from interviewing or broadcasting songs by Israeli songwriter and author Yehonatan Geffen after he posted a poem on Instagram comparing Palestinian teenager Ahed Tamimi to Anne Frank, Hanna Senesh and Joan of Arc.
In the poem, posted Monday, Geffen said Tamimi was born into “50 years of occupation and humiliation” and compared her actions to “David who slapped Goliath.” “You will be on counted alongside Joan of Arc, Hanna Senesh and Anne Frank,” Geffen ended the poem.

The Arab league is working to block Israel’s bid for a United Nations Security Council (UNSC) seat in the 2019-2020 term.
An Arab League ministerial committee convened Monday to discuss a plan it has prepared for this purpose. The meeting, chaired by Iraq, was held at the level of permanent representatives.
Assistant Secretary General for Palestine, Saeed Abu Ali, said the committee evaluated what had been done to counter Israel’s efforts to obtain a non-permanent seat on the Security Council.

US embassy move: Netanyahu says he’s on the same page as Trump

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

By Margot Dudkevitch, World Israel News

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

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

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

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

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

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

By: World Israel News Staff

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

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

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

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

After curses and aid cuts, has ‘desperate’ Abbas reached dead end?

After curses and aid cuts, has ‘desperate’ Abbas reached dead end?Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. (Flash90)
US Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt returned to Israel only days after the Palestinian leader cursed President Trump and rejected any role for the US in the peace process.
By: Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
US President Donald Trump’s Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt arrived in Israel on Wednesday, only three days after the Mahmoud Abbas’ meltdown speech in which the Palestinian leader ruled out Washington’s role in the peace process “as long as Trump is in the White House.” Abbas also uttered an Arabic curse at Trump, roughly translated as “May your house be demolished.”
Greenblatt is due to meet with envoys from the Middle East Quartet comprised of the US, European Union, United Nations and Russia. The White House says that Greenblatt “will be attending a regular meeting of the Quartet envoys to exchange information and continue our engagement on advancing peace.” But with Abbas seemingly pulling away from the peace process, Israel and Washington are both trying to determine what the next Palestinian move will be, and whether there is a way to move forward.
Abbas was reportedly furious after being given a preliminary account of Trump’s peace plan given to him by the Saudis. Written by Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, the plan reportedly envisions a Palestinian entity that is less than a state, with borders that are not based on the pre-1967 lines. Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria will remain in place and Israel will continue to control thE Jordan Valley, with the final status of Jerusalem to be an issue for negotiations.

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

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

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

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

Lawmaker seeks to ban BDS funding of trips for Knesset membersChairman of the Knesset Committee Yoav Kisch (Yonatan Sindel/Flash90)
Should BDS be allowed to pay for trips taken by Israeli lawmakers?  
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
The Knesset’s House Committee on Wednesday held another meeting on the proposal to add to the Rules of Ethics for Members of the Knesset a clause which would ban lawmakers from going on trips abroad that are financed by organizations which delegitimize Israel and call for boycotts of it.
During a meeting in May 2017, House Committee Chairman Member of Knesset Yoav Kisch requested that the clause include a ban on MKs’ trips abroad which are funded by organizations that reject Israel’s existence as a Jewish and democratic state, incite  racism, support armed conflict by a terrorist organization or enemy country against Israel, call to boycott Israel or regions of Israel, Israeli products, academia or culture, or that seek to put Israelis on trial for war crimes or deny the Holocaust.
During Wednesday’s meeting, a new version of the proposal was presented, based on a list recently published by the Ministry of Strategic Affairs which includes some 20 boycott organizations whose members are not permitted to enter Israel, in accordance with an amendment to the Entry into Israel Law.
According to Kisch, this list solves the problem presented during the last meeting by the Knesset Ethics Committee, which argued at the time that it does not have the tools to determine which organizations are legitimate and which are not.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

By: Adina Katz, World Israel News

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

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

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

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

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

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

By: Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
It’s rare that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu faces the Israeli press. It’s very rare that Netanyahu takes questions from the foreign and foreign language media. Wednesday night was one such occasion, as the Government Press Office hosted Israel’s 70th anniversary New Year’s reception for hundreds of journalists.
Held in an opulent reception hall at the new Orient Hotel in Jerusalem, the event featured a range of entertainment and an impressive buffet, but less than 10 minutes of the Prime Minister on stage answering journalists’ questions.

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

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

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

Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz has ordered the Israel Electric Corporation to restore electricity to the Gaza Strip. Israel had minimized the power flow in June, in compliance with the Palestinian Authority (PA) government in Ramallah.
Following a new PA request, Gaza’s electricity will now be returned to 120 megawatts, as it was prior to June, the IDF’s Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) stated Monday.
“Israel is motivated by purely humanitarian reasons when it comes to this issue, and will thus reinstate the electric supply previously provided,” COGAT said.
COGAT is the IDF unit responsible for implementing government policy in Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The attack came as violent protests erupted in several cities throughout the country against austerity measures the government had authorized in its 2018 budget, which raised taxes and prices on items such as gasoline. The moves were deemed necessary as part of an economic reform package needed to get approval a year ago for a $2.8 billion loan from the International Monetary Fund, as Tunisia tries to overcome its growing economic challenges.

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

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

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

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

The budget is the largest sum ever earmarked by Israel for the purpose of combating BDS activities. Half the budget will come directly from the Ministry of Strategic Affairs, and the rest from donations from a group of at least 10 pro-Israel philanthropists.

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

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

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

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

British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson told his Palestinian counterpart that Jerusalem will be the “shared capital of the Israeli and Palestinian states.”
By: World Israel News Staff
Britain’s chief diplomat Boris Johnson told the Palestinian Authority’s Riyad al-Malki on Monday that Jerusalem will ultimately be shared by Israel and a future Palestinian state, according to a statement from the British foreign office .
“I reiterated the UK’s commitment to supporting the Palestinian people and the two-state solution, the urgent need for renewed peace negotiations, and the UK’s clear and longstanding position on the status of Jerusalem,” Johnson stated.
“It should be determined in a negotiated settlement between the Israelis and the Palestinians, and Jerusalem should ultimately be the shared capital of the Israeli and Palestinian states,” he stated.
The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) voted last month in favor of a nonbinding resolution condemning US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The resolution also represents a rejection of the US intention to move the US embassy to Jerusalem, a policy that has been sanctioned by US law for over two decades.The UNGA voted 128-9 with 35 abstentions to declare Trump’s declaration as “null and void.” The UK was among those that voted in favor of the resolution.
In an address ahead of the UN vote, al-Malki said the US decision represents “an aggression on the natural rights of the Palestinian people…and all Arabs and Muslims of the world.” He made repeated references to Muslim holy sites in Jerusalem, without ever acknowledging the ancient Jewish ties to the holy city.

VP Pence to visit Israel, Egypt, Jordan but will not meet with Palestinians

US VP Pence will meet this month with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi, Jordan’s King Abdullah and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, but not with the Palestinians.

By: AP

Vice President Mike Pence will visit Egypt, Jordan and Israel this month after postponing a trip to the Middle East in December following President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

The White House announced Monday that Pence will travel to the region Jan. 19-23, starting with a meeting in Cairo with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi. Pence will also confer with King Abdullah II of Jordan and then hold two days of meetings and events in Israel.
Pence’s agenda in Israel includes meetings with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin, an address to the Knesset and visits to the Western Wall and the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial.
Pence postponed his visit to Israel and Egypt in mid-December because of a Senate vote on Trump’s tax overhaul. But Pence’s trip to the Middle East, his first as vice president, will be carefully watched following Trump’s decision on Israel’s capital, which prompted Palestinian leaders to cancel planned meetings with the vice president.
Alyssa Farah, a Pence spokeswoman, said Pence was traveling to the Middle East at Trump’s direction “to reaffirm our commitment to work with the U.S.’s allies in the region to defeat radicalism that threatens future generations.” Farah said Pence was “looking forward to meeting with the leaders of Egypt, Jordan, and Israel to discuss ways to work together to fight terrorism and improve our national security.”
Pence is not expected to meet with the Palestinians, who have sought to make east Jerusalem their capital.
Before Trump’s announcement, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas had planned to meet with Pence in the biblical town of Bethlehem but pulled out of the meeting in protest. The White House decision on Jerusalem also prompted leading Muslim and Christian clerics in Egypt to refuse to meet with the vice president in Cairo. Pence is only expected to meet with el-Sissi, a leading Trump ally, while in Egypt.
The status of Jerusalem has long been a central issue in the decades-long Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Trump’s announcement in early December declaring Jerusalem to be Israel’s capital along with US plans to move its embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv shook up decades of American foreign policy ahead of Pence’s planned visit.

Analysis: ‘United Jerusalem’ law paves way for tampering with Israeli capital’s municipal boundaries

The coalition passed a law requiring a two-thirds-majority vote before parts of Jerusalem can be given away in a peace agreement. At the same time, the door is now open to tampering with the city’s municipal boundaries in order to ensure a large Jewish majority.
By Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
The ‘Unified Jerusalem’ law was passed in the Knesset late Monday night as an amendment to ‘Basic Law: Jerusalem.’ Driven by Education Minister Naftali Bennett and his Habayit HaYehudi (Jewish Home) party, the new law requires that any decision on the status of Jerusalem must receive an 80-Knesset-member (two-thirds) majority.
Bennett welcomed the law’s passage, tweeting, “We’ve assured Jerusalem’s unity. The law safeguards Jerusalem, whose status will not be changed unless an enormous 80-MK majority is reached. The Mount of Olives, the Old City, the Temple Mount and the City of David will remain ours forever. No political stunts will rip our capital apart.”
While it’s true that the new law now requires a two-thirds majority for any decision to be taken on Jerusalem’s status, the law itself can be changed with a bare majority of 61 MKs in favor. At the same time, along with the law’s passage, an article was changed in ‘Basic Law: Jerusalem’ removing the prohibition on making changes to the city’s municipal boundaries. In other words, areas currently part of the Jerusalem municipality may be removed from the city and placed “in a separate authority” with Israeli sovereignty still applying to them. That means the door has been opened to tampering with Jerusalem’s municipal boundaries in order to ensure a large Jewish majority in the Israeli capital.
Bennett continued tweeting, “Our capital city was saved twice from the catastrophe of partition efforts led by former prime ministers Ehud Olmert and Ehud Barak, when they held a fleeting Knesset majority. That is now over. The ‘Unified Jerusalem Law’ prevents any possibility of partition, strengthens our international standing and prevents future pressures on Israel.”

By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
Israeli security forces arrested two female Bedouins from southern Israel who had joined the Islamic State (ISIS) terror group and were planning an attack.
The Shin Bet (Israel’s Security Agency) announced Monday that Rahma Al-Assad and Tasnin Al-Assad, both 19 from Lakiya in the Negev Desert, were arrested last month on charges of maintaining connections with a terror agent.
The investigation revealed that the two women were asked over the course of the past year by ISIS operatives from abroad to carry out an attack and explore various venues and times. One suggestion was an attack on a New Year’s celebration.
The women planned to leave Israel and join ISIS in the battlefield. They also published online content praising the Islamic State and inciting attacks against Israel and Jews.
They were indicted at a Beer Sheva court on Monday.
ISIS was declared an illegal organization in 2014 by then-Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon.
Israeli security forces have exposed several incidents of Bedouins joining ISIS-inspired terror elements, including four Bedouin teachers working in the Israeli school system in southern Israel who were arrested in July 2015 for distributing ISIS propaganda among their students as well as other educators in the Negev town of Hura.
Most recently, Khaled Abu Jaudah and Zahi Abu Jaudah, Israeli Bedouin citizens who reside in the Negev, were arrested for the attempted abduction and murder of IDF soldier Ron Kokia in November.

Egypt officially rejects the idea that a state representative would promote any city other than eastern Jerusalem as the Palestinian capital.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
In a detailed release on Sunday, the Egyptian State Information Service (SIS) repudiated every element of Saturday’s New York Times report, which claimed that an Egyptian intelligence official had encouraged several talk show hosts to push the idea that Ramallah was an acceptable substitute for Jerusalem as the eventual capital of ‘Palestine.’
The Saturday report stated that the Times had obtained audio recordings of telephone calls made by an intelligence officer named Captain Ashraf al-Kholi to four “influential” radio hosts after US President Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. In the calls, he allegedly asked that they not only refrain from condemning Trump’s declaration, but also help persuade the Egyptian public to think of Ramallah – the current seat of the Palestinian Authority government — as a tolerable choice instead.
Although the government would publicly slam the suggestion, strife with Israel was not in Egypt’s national interest, Kholi allegedly told the hosts. “The point that is dangerous for us is the intifada issue. An intifada would not serve Egypt’s national security interests because an intifada would revive the Islamists and Hamas. Hamas would be reborn once more,” he reportedly said.
Hamas is an extension of the Muslim Brotherhood, an extremist Sunni Islamist organization that briefly took power in Egypt in 2012 after the fall of President Hosni Mubarak. When it was ousted one year later by Defense Minister Abdel al-Sisi, who then became president, Egyptian relations with Hamas soured as well, although recently attempts have been made to repair them.

By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
A Palestinian ambulance driver has been exposed as a messenger for terror elements within Gaza, the IDF said Sunday.
Marwan Abu Rida, an ambulance driver for the Red Crescent, has been using his position to exploit patients seeking medical treatment in Israel for terrorist organizations, the IDF’s Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) charged.
According to COGAT, Abu Rida illegally transferred equipment and funds from the Gaza Strip to various terror groups in Judea and Samaria multiple times over the past year.
This was done while risking the lives of patients he was transferring from the Gaza Strip, COGAT said.
“Beside the fact that his actions are criminal, they go directly against the Red Crescent’s commitment to neutrality and cynically exploit patients who seek to enter Israel for life-saving treatments,” COGAT stated, while demanding that the Red Crescent fire him from his position immediately.

By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Israel’s Security cabinet met Sunday for a comprehensive discussion on the threats posed to the country on its northern front. They also discussed the necessary diplomatic activity vis-a-vis Russia and the United States in order to prevent Syria from becoming an Iranian base.
Iranian Armed Forces Chief of Staff Mohammad Bagheri suggested to Damascus that Iran be allowed to make permanent its already-extensive military presence in the country. He reportedly wants to set up air, naval, intelligence and surface-to-surface missile bases, place Iranian anti-aircraft batteries there, and even establish a local military industry.
However, the current thinking appears to be that for the time being, Syrian President Bashar Assad is refusing the Iranian demand because he does not want to give Israel cause to attack in Syria and endanger what he achieved by re-taking control of his country with the help of the Russians.

The US on Thursday imposed sanctions on five Iranian entities over their involvement in the Islamic Republic’s ballistic missiles program.
The five entities being targeted are subsidiaries of Shahid Bakeri Industrial Group, part of the Iranian Defense Ministry. Shahid is already under US sanctions. The new designations ensure its subsidiaries are punished too.
“These sanctions target key entities involved in Iran’s ballistic missile program, which the Iranian regime prioritizes over the economic well-being of the Iranian people,” said Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.
“As the Iranian people suffer, their government and the IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps) fund foreign militants, terrorist groups and human rights abuses,” Mnuchin charged.

Angry Palestinians swarmed his convoy as he made his way toward the Church of the Nativity. They scuffled with Palestinian police, threw stones and smashed windows of the car in which he was riding as they demanded he be stripped of his titles and removed from the church.
Heads of the municipalities of Bethlehem, Beit Jala and Beit Sahour boycotted the reception, along with several religious organizations affiliated with the Greek Orthodox Church.
Theophilos III is accused of selling some 500 dunams (123.5 acres) belonging to the Orthodox Church in Jerusalem to Israeli entrepreneurs.

The State Department denied a report that the Trump administration froze a payment of $125 million to the UN agency for Palestinian “refugees.”
By: JNS.org and World Israel News Staff
The US State Department has denied a report that $125 million in American funding to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) has been frozen.
The Axios news website reported last Friday that the US payment to UNWRA—representing one-third of America’s annual contribution to the UN refugee agency solely dedicated to the Palestinians—was due to arrive on Jan.1, but was halted.
Earlier last week, President Donald Trump threatened to cut off aid to the Palestinians for their refusal to negotiate with Israel.
An unnamed State Department official told Reuters that the Axios report “is very misleading. Just because they were expecting the money on the first, and they did not get it at that time, does not mean it was suspended or canceled.”
UNRWA spokesperson Chris Gunness said the agency had not been notified of a formal US decision on funding.
Last week, as part of a series of tweets on US foreign aid, Trump wrote that “with the Palestinians no longer willing to talk peace, why should we make any of these massive future payments to them?”

While top Israeli ministers support a total halt to US funding for the UN’s Palestinian aid agency, others, including Prime Minister Netanyahu, reportedly support a more gradual approach in order to avoid a humanitarian crisis that could burden Israel.
By: Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
There are conflicting reports coming out of Jerusalem relating to whether Israel favors or opposes proposed cuts in US donations to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNWRA), which supports the Palestinians. Meanwhile, US officials are denying claims that American funds to UNWRA have already been frozen.
A State Department official reportedly told the Times of Israel, “Contrary to reports that we have halted funding to UNRWA, the decision is under review and there are still deliberations taking place.”
Those deliberations are being mirrored here in Israel.

A report released by the IDF notes an increase in Israeli terror fatalities last year, although the number of attacks perpetrated by Palestinian terrorists has decreased. 

By Margot Dudkevitch

The year 2017 saw more Israelis killed in terror attacks waged inside Israel, including Judea and Samaria, despite a decrease in the number of attacks perpetrated by Palestinian terrorists, details released by the IDF revealed.

Twenty people were killed and 169 wounded in attacks that originated in Judea and Samaria compared with 17 fatalities in 2016. Stabbing and shooting attacks as well as running over civilians and soldiers characterized the attacks perpetrated by terrorists over the past year. The army noted that the Carl Gustav-style submachine gun, manufactured in Palestinian areas inside Judea and Samaria, was the preferred weapon used by terrorists in shooting attacks.

Together with the Shin Bet security agency and Israel Police, the army stepped up its operations in Judea and Samaria, cracking down on weapons-manufacturing facilities and shutting down some 42 weapons factories, as well as seizing millions of shekels in cash used to fund the terrorist activities.

Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef, Israel’s sephardi chief rabbi, warns that a death penalty for Palestinian terrorists would endanger Jews around the world.
By Margot Dudkevitch
Less than a week after a law calling to impose the death penalty on terrorists was approved in a preliminary reading in the Knesset, the move was harshly opposed by  Israel’s Sefardi Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef.
Speaking at his weekly Torah class on Saturday night, Rabbi Yosef warned that such a law would endanger Jews not just in Israel, but around the world. It would also mean that Jews found guilty of perpetrating terror attacks would face the death penalty as well, which is against Jewish law.
“We are not the Sanhedrin (an assembly forming a Jewish court during biblical times). If there was a situation of a Jewish terrorist killing them, it (death penalty) would be against halacha (Jewish law). This has nothing to do with the Right and the Left, it has to do with judgment,” the rabbi said.
The rabbi, noting the defense establishment’s harsh opposition to the proposed legislation, was not the first to oppose the legislation.

By: AP
A 32-year-old German neo-Nazi has been sentenced to 18 months in prison for incitement after posting a picture of a miniature of the Auschwitz death camp on Facebook with an offensive caption.
Judge Manfred Weber at the district court in Hohenstein-Ernstthal in eastern Germany told the man Thursday “you made fun of Auschwitz survivors — that’s very bad.”
The German news agency dpa reported that the sentence of the previously convicted neo-Nazi also took into consideration his earlier charge for criminal assault and the posting of a photomontage of Adolf Hitler in combination with a swastika and firecrackers. The display of Nazi emblems is illegal in Germany.
The man from Glauchau in Saxony, whose name was not given in line with German privacy rules, can appeal the conviction.
During World War II some 1.1 million people, mainly Jews but also Poles, Roma, Russians and other nationals were murdered by the Nazis at Auschwitz.

The year 2017 was fraught with anti-Semitic incidents in the US, the ADL told the Knesset.
By: World Israel News Staff
At the Knesset, the Director of the Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL) Israel Office, Carole Nuriel, reported a sharp increase in anti-Semitic incidents across the US in 2017, and warned that this dangerous trend could continue.
During Monday’s meeting of the Committee for Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Affairs, Nuriel reported a 67 percent increase in anti-Semitic incidents across the United States in the first nine months of 2017, compared with the same time period in 2016.
According to the ADL’s “2017 Audit of Anti-Semitic Incidents,” there were 1,299 anti-Semitic incidents across the US from January to September, including physical assaults, vandalism and attacks on Jewish institutions.
That total represents a 67 percent increase over the same period in the previous year and exceeds the 1,266 incidents reported in total during 2016.
In addition to the significant bump in the first quarter of 2017, there was also a distinct increase after August 11, 2017. On that day, the ADL recorded a “meta-event” rarely seen in America: the white supremacist “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, which featured shocking and violent expressions of anti-Semitism and racism, including the display of swastika flags, chants of “Jews will not replace us!” and other overt anti-Semitic acts. Anti-Semitic incidents spiked on and immediately following the Charlottesville rally.
Of the 306 incidents reported in the third quarter, 221 took place on or after the Charlottesville rally, which was one of at least 33 public white supremacist events in the US so far this year. In addition, 188 incidents of white supremacists using fliers to spread their message to new audiences, especially on college campuses, were reported.
Of the incidents reported, there has been a disturbingly high number of anti-Semitic bullying and vandalism in K-12 schools and college campuses across the US. Consistent with prior reports, the states with the highest number of incidents tend to be those with the largest Jewish populations. Incidents recorded from January through September include 703 incidents of harassment, including 162 bomb threats against Jewish institutions; 584 incidents of vandalism, including 52 against Jewish institutions and 12 physical assaults.

In the holy city of Qom in Iran, on December 30, 2017, anti-regime demonstrators shouted “Death to Hezbollah,” “Aren’t you ashamed Khamenei? Get out of Syria and take care of us,” and “Not Gaza, or Lebanon.”
In an Islamic country, whose official slogan is “Death to America” and “Death to Israel,” to see Iranian people shouting “Death to Hezbollah” is totally surreal.
By wishing “Death to Hezbollah,” Iranians demonstrators were not only protesting a “rise of the price of eggs,” as the Ayatollahs’ propaganda machine tried to claim.

A group of Israeli Arabs was sent to prison for setting fire to a concert venue they deemed offensive to Islam.
By: World Israel News Staff
An Israeli court in Lod on Monday sent three Israeli Arabs to prison after they were convicted of setting fire to an Arab city’s soccer field in an attempt to cancel an “Arab Idol” concert that was scheduled to be held at the venue.
The three, supporters of the Islamic State (ISIS) terror group, committed the act of arson because they believed that the performance “harmed the core principles of Islam.”
The three were convicted of supporting a terror organization, conspiring to commit a crime, trespassing, arson and other offenses, and were sentenced to terms ranging from 28 months to three years behind bars.
The group was also charged, but not convicted, of attempting to dig a tunnel from the Palestinian city of Tul Karem to Israel, through which they planned to smuggle weapons.
The three Arabs viewed the Arab Idol show as “a heretical act against Islam,” and therefore infiltrated the stadium in the city of Teibah, set fire to large amount of equipment and bleachers, causing damages of NIS 78,000.
The concert was held despite the arson. After the concert began with some 3,000 in attendance, one of the three called the police and told them they had planted a bomb which was about to go off in 10 minutes time.

“I consider it a work of fiction,” Trump told reporters about the book authored by Michael Wolff, who concedes some sources were “definitely lying to him.”
By: AP and World Israel News Staff
President Donald Trump felt compelled Saturday to let the world know he’s playing with all his marbles and is among the sharpest cookies around. It was the latest pushback against a new book that portrays him as a leader who doesn’t understand the weight of his office and whose competence is questioned by aides.
“Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart,” Trump tweeted from Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland, a few hours before a strategy session on the 2018 legislative agenda with Republican congressional leaders and Cabinet members.
And when Trump addressed reporters later, the Ivy League graduate was ready for the question.
“I went to the best colleges,” said Trump, who holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Pennsylvania. “I had a situation where I was a very excellent student, came out, made billions and billions of dollars, became one of the top business people, went to television and for 10 years was a tremendous success, as you probably have heard, ran for president one time and won.”
A work of fiction?
His ire was directed at Michael Wolff, author of “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.” The book draws a derogatory portrait of the 45th president as an undisciplined man-child who didn’t actually want to win the White House,

By: World Israel News Staff
Former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has reportedly been arrested after criticizing the government in remarks that were deemed as “inciting unrest.”
The Al Quds Al Arabi daily reported Saturday that it learned from “reliable sources in Tehran” that the authorities ordered Ahmadinejad’s arrest during his visit to the city of Shiraz, and that the arrest was made with the approval of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.
The arrest was ordered after Ahmadinejad’s recent remarks in Bushehr, where he told a crowd just as the widespread unrest in Iran began that the nation’s leadership is detached “from the problems of the people and their concerns, and [does] not know anything about the reality of society.”
“What Iran is suffering from today is mismanagement and not lack of economic resources,” he charged.
“The government of Hassan Rouhani believes that they own the land and that the people are an ignorant society,” Ahmadinejad said. “The people are angry at this government because of its monopoly on public wealth.”
Authorities have reportedly placed him under house arrest.
The Iranian people have taken to the streets in the past week to protest Iran’s dictatorial regime and the repressive financial state in which the Iranian citizens live.

Three years after it was set up, the IDF on Wednesday unveiled Unit 3060, a secretive data science team that develops applications for intelligence uses.
By: TPS
According to intelligence sources, the IDF’s Unit 3060 is engaged in research and development in the fields of machine learning, artificial intelligence, Big Data and image processing. The unit aims to provide intelligence officers and commanders in the field with real-time images and analysis to help them make operational decisions.
One of the systems developed by the unit is known as Derech Hamelech and enables intelligence officers to do complex field analysis ahead of maneuvers. The system integrates various parameters such as visuals, intelligence information and topographics to help optimize the best path for forces to approach their target.
“The systems developed by the unit are able to process large amounts of intelligence and can process and analyze the data to create recommendations for intelligence officers,” a military source told the army’s Bamachane website.
Military sources told Bamachane that during combat, the unit’s soldiers are integrated into various intelligence units to assimilate the systems according to operational needs with technological solutions developed in real time. The sources added that the unit functions similarly to a startup company, with short development cycles and a strong connection between developers and end users.

The Trump administration froze a payment of $125 million to the UN agency for Palestinian “refugees” and is reviewing any future funding of the organization. 
By: World Israel News Staff
The US froze a $125 million grant to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), the UN agency for Palestinian refugees, Israel’s Channel 10 News and the American Axios news site reported on Friday.
Citing three Western diplomats who asked to remain anonymous, the reports said the grant was due to be delivered on January 1 and that the amount frozen is one-third of the US annual funding to UNRWA.
For now, the money has been frozen while the US reassesses the situation. US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley announced earlier in the week that the Trump administration will halt aid to the Palestinians unless they agree to come to the negotiating table and participate in peace talks with the Israelis.
President Donald Trump “doesn’t want to give any additional funding until the Palestinians agree to come back to the negotiating table,” Haley stated on Tuesday.
On that same day, Trump tweeted, “We pay the Palestinians HUNDRED OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS a year and get no appreciation or respect…with the Palestinians no longer willing to talk peace, why should we make any of these massive future payments to them?”

Any final deal, financial or political, requires two sides giving and taking. Netanyahu and Trump certainly understand this reality.
By: Daniel Krygier
President Donald Trump’s recent tweet regarding the Arab-Israeli conflict has raised speculations regarding his vision for settling the conflict between Arabs and Jews.
“As an example, we pay the Palestinians hundred of millions of dollars a year and get no appreciation or respect. They don’t even want to negotiate a long overdue peace treaty with Israel. We have taken Jerusalem, the toughest part of the negotiation, off the table, but Israel, for that, would have had to pay more…,” the President tweeted.
The tweet consists of two main parts. It criticizes Palestinian Authority (PA) leader Mahmoud Abbas and his regime for receiving hundreds of millions of dollars each year from Washington without showing any appreciation or respect towards America. Second, in cryptic language, Trump says that Israel would have to pay more for having Jerusalem taken off the table.
Some Middle East commentators have referred to Trump’s business background and concluded that there will be no more free lunches in the Arab-Israeli peace talks. However, that is only partially true. As far as Israel is concerned, there were never any free lunches. Since its rebirth 70 years ago, Israel never got anything for free and frequently had to pay a heavy price for issues that most other countries take for granted, such as having its de facto capital recognized by the international community

By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
On Tuesday, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley threatened to cut funding to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) until the Palestinians return to the negotiating table. Haley was immediately backed up by President Trump, who tweeted, “We pay the Palestinians HUNDRED OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS a year and get no appreciation or respect.”
The US is currently UNRWA’s largest donor, giving $368 million to the agency annually.
Publicly, Israel has lauded the possible aid cuts. UNRWA, which subsidizes Palestinian activities in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, and the Gaza Strip, has been castigated as a “terror-supporting organization” by figures such as Education Minister Naftali Bennet, who offered full-throated support for the possible American move.
Blatant incitement against Israel in UNRWA schools, along with the documented use of its facilities as storage spaces for Hamas rockets and weapons, have made the agency the target of vociferous criticism by Israeli officials over the years.

Analyzing potential threats facing Israel in the coming year, Eizenkot pointed to five different fronts that he sees as Israel’s biggest security challenges: Lebanon, Syria, Judea and Samaria, Gaza and Sinai, but added that Iran has a hand in all those threats.

Israel exposed a Palestinian terror cell that was recruited, guided and funded by Iranian intelligence agents. 
By: Aryeh Savir. World Israel News
Israel’s security forces recently arrested a Palestinian terror cell that was funded and run by Iranian intelligence out of South Africa, the Shin Bet revealed Wednesday.
The Palestinian ringleader is Muhammad Maharame, a 29-year-old computer engineering student from Hebron. He was recruited by his relative, Bachar Maharame, who has been living in South Africa in recent years.
The Shin Bet investigation revealed that the Iranians have been using South Africa as a place to recruit Palestinians who could act as their agents in Judea and Samaria.
Bachar was sent by the Iranian intelligence to recruit potential agents who would carry out espionage and sabotage operations against Israel on behalf of the Iranians. He recruited Muhammad during his visit to South Africa in 2015.
Muhammad met Iranian agents on several occasions, including some who traveled from Tehran to meet with him.
Multiple anti-Israel tasks
Muhammad was tasked with several anti-Israel missions, including the recruiting of a suicide terrorist and a terror cell that would carry out shooting attacks. He was also told to open a photo shop in Hebron, which could have served as a cover through which Muhammad would relay intelligence to his relative Bachar and to the Iranians.

British-Israeli journalist Jonathan Spyer secretly joined a government-led tour in Syria that resulted in the firing of its information minister.
By Aryeh Savir and Steve Leibowitz
Syrian President Bashar Assad recently fired Information Minister Mohammed Ramez Tourjman for allowing a Jewish Israeli journalist to enter the country, Al-Arabiya news reported Tuesday.
The journalist, Dr. Jonathan Spyer, confirmed to World Israel News that he had met twice with Tourjman while taking part in a Syria government-run propaganda group funded by the Syrian government.
“I joined a delegation in April 2017 of activists and journalists. I went along because although I had reported extensively from Syria, I had not been to areas of the country controlled by the Assad regime. The delegation was organized by the Syrian Information Ministry, and the minister at the time, Mohammed Tourjman, spoke to us on two occasions. After I left the country I wrote several articles for the Western media. It took until now for the scandal to erupt involving my participation, and as a result the minister was fired,” Spyer said.

A bill which would make it easier for military courts to sentence terrorists to death passed a preliminary reading in the Knesset on Wednesday.
The bill was approved in a 52-49 vote in its preliminary reading by the Knesset.
The bill, proposed by Yisrael Beitenu Members of Knesset Robert Ilatov, Oded Forer and Yulia Malinovsky, will now be transferred to the Constitution, Law and Justice Committee, which will prepare it for its first reading at the Knesset plenum.

A bill making it easier to sentence terrorists to death passed its first reading in the Knesset, but the legislation’s chances of passing into law depend on the Prime Minister’s ability to keep his fragile coalition intact.
By: Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
In a preliminary vote on Wednesday, the Knesset narrowly voted by a vote of 52-49 to support a bill that purports to make it easier for military courts to sentence to death terrorists who commit murder. The “Terrorist Death Penalty” bill proposes that an ordinary majority of judges, rather than a unanimous vote, would be given the authority to mete out the death penalty. Political pundits and longtime advocates of the death penalty say that political considerations allowed the bill to pass a preliminary reading, but chances that the proposal will become law are unlikely.
The bill, sponsored by Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman, needs to pass three rounds of voting at the Knesset in order to become a law. At Wednesday’s Ministerial Committee for Legislation, Liberman reportedly pounded on the table, and demanded that the law be advanced in accordance with a commitment his party purportedly received in the 2015 coalition agreement.

The offshoot of ISIS in the Sinai Peninsula that usually pays deadly attention to Egyptian security forces and civilians released a video on social media Wednesday calling for its followers to destroy Hamas.
“Never surrender to them. Use explosives, silenced pistols, and sticky bombs. Bomb their courts and their security locations, for these are the pillars of tyranny that prop up its throne,” says the knife-wielding narrator of the video.

By: Ebin Sandler, World Israel News
At a press conference at the United Nations (UN) on Tuesday, US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley fielded questions about the fate of US funding for the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), the primary UN agency responsible for funneling aid to the Palestinians.
In a video posted by Reuters, Haley responded to a question regarding whether the US would continue to fund the agency in light of the Palestinians’ threat to “unleash all the weapons we have in the UN,” by saying, “[President Trump] doesn’t want to give any additional funding, or stop funding, until the Palestinians agree to come back to the negotiation table, and what we saw with the [UN Jerusalem] resolution was not helpful to the situation.”
“We’re trying to move for a peace process, but if that doesn’t happen, the president is not going to continue to fund that situation,” Haley emphasized, without clarifying whether the term “situation” referred specifically to UNRWA’s operations.

Israeli analysts say Trump’s threat to sever US aid to the Palestinians will not force them back to the negotiating table, nor will it push them to renew relations with Washington.
By Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
The Palestinians say “no” ties with the US, “no” meetings with US peace emissaries, and a big “no” to Washington’s recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital. All of these negatives have combined to turn President Donald Trump’s twitter arsenal against the PA.
Early Wednesday morning, Trump tweeted, “It’s not only Pakistan that we pay billions of dollars to for nothing, but also many other countries, and others. As an example, we pay the Palestinians HUNDRED OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS a year and get no appreciation or respect. They don’t even want to negotiate a long overdue…”
A few moments later Trump tweeted, “…peace treaty with Israel. We have taken Jerusalem, the toughest part of the negotiation, off the table, but Israel, for that, would have had to pay more. But with the Palestinians no longer willing to talk peace, why should we make any of these massive future payments to them?”
According to the US president, the Palestinians had no legitimate reason to be furious over his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital because Israel would have had “to pay” for his declarations with concessions in future negotiations.

During Wednesday’s cabinet meeting, which had been convened to discuss the deportation of African infiltrators, Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz challenged a bill proposed by Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman. The law would make it easier to apply the death penalty to terrorists.
Visibly angered, the defense minister reminded the assembled that the bill had been part of the coalition agreement when the government was formed, which he argued would make further debate over the legislation moot.
Steinitz replied, “In such a matter, which can harm the State of Israel, a discussion must be held, and according to the government’s regulations, without discussion the ministers cannot support it. Even if there are coalition agreements, there is room to voice an additional opinion.”

The Palestinians have an old and nasty habit of placing themselves on the wrong side of history and aligning themselves with tyrannical leaders and regimes. Every time the Palestinians make the wrong choice, they end up paying a heavy price. Yet, they do not seem to learn from their mistakes.
The latest example of Palestinian misjudgments surfaced last week when the Palestinian Authority “ambassador” to Pakistan, Walid Abu Ali, shared a stage with UN-designated terrorist and Jamat-ul-Dawa leader Hafiz Saeed.
The two men appeared together at a rally that was held to protest US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Thousands attended the rally in Rawalpindi, which was organized by the Defense of Pakistan Council, an alliance of religious parties dominated by Saeed’s group.

‘Globes Israel’ claims that a secret department was set up in France’s tax authority specifically to investigate French Jews for tax evasion.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
The French have set up a secret department within their tax authority that employs 20 Hebrew speakers in order to find out if Jews are trying to evade taxes, Globes Israel reported.
According to the report, it is even looking to enlarge the division by 25 percent. The purpose is to catch Jews who are improperly using Israel as a tax shelter.
One of the most common ways of hiding assets – and even laundering money – is to buy real estate. The article states that the investigators look closely at real estate purchases in Israeli cities that are popular among French immigrants, such as Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Netanya and Herzliya. They search for foreign passport numbers and cross reference them with the asset and income reports that the owners had filed in France to see if the properties bought in Israel are listed. If not, they are asked to come in for questioning.

A senior Palestinian official slammed the Knesset’s vote on a bill that seeks to keep Jerusalem unified, as well as a Likud party resolution declaring Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria, blaming the moves on US policy.
Saeb Erekat, the chief Palestinian negotiator, said Tuesday that these moves are the result of President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and “part of new US-Israeli collaboration to dictate a solution and destroy the two-state principle.”
Erekat, Secretary General of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Executive Committee, told the official Voice of Palestine radio that Palestinian Authority (PA) head Mahmoud Abbas has outlined the Palestinian strategy to “face these acts that seek to liquidate the Palestinian cause.”

In response to the attack, an Israel Air Force (IAF) aircraft targeted a Hamas military compound in southern Gaza.

The IDF estimates that the rockets fired in recent weeks were launched by terror groups other than Hamas. However, Israel holds Hamas, which rules the Strip, accountable for all attacks.
Incidents of rocket fire have become almost a common occurrence in recent weeks. Over 30 rockets were fired over the past month, close to the total number launched since the summer of 2014.
The last attack occurred on Friday night. The IDF identified three launches from Gaza, and the Iron Dome aerial defense system intercepted two of the rockets. A structure was directly hit and damaged by the third rocket.

The unrest in Iran is intensifying and spreading. Will its bring down the Ayatollah regime?
By: AP and World Israel News Staff
Protests across Iran saw their most violent night as “armed protesters” tried to overrun military bases and police stations before security forces repelled them, killing 10 people, Iranian state television said Monday.
The demonstrations, the largest to strike Iran since its disputed 2009 presidential election, have seen five days of unrest across the country and a death toll of at least 13 with the slaying of a police officer announced late Monday.
The protests began Thursday in Mashhad over Iran’s weak economy and a jump in food prices and have expanded to several cities, with some protesters chanting against the government and the supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Hundreds have been arrested.
Iranian state television aired footage of a ransacked private bank, broken windows, overturned cars and a firetruck that appeared to have been set ablaze. It said 10 people were killed by security forces during clashes Sunday night.
“Some armed protesters tried to take over some police stations and military bases but faced serious resistance from security forces,” state TV said.
There have been scattered reports on deaths throughout Iranian cities. The regime has banned Western and independent reporting on the incidents and so the exact scale and scope of the clashes and deaths is not accurately known.
Late Monday, Iran’s semi-official Mehr news agency said an assailant using a hunting rifle killed a policeman and wounded three other officers during a demonstration in the central city of Najafabad, about 320 kilometers (200 miles) south of Tehran. The slaying marked the first security force member to be killed in the unrest.

2017 was a record year for tourism to the Holy Land, with about 3.6 million tourists and NIS 20 billion in revenues from tourism alone.
By: World Israel News Staff
If it seems that there are more tourists enjoying Israeli historical sites such as the Western Wall and Masada, it’s not an illusion. 2017 was a record year for incoming tourism in Israel, which resulted in NIS 20 billion in revenue for the Jewish state’s economy.
The number of incoming tourists in 2017 was about 3.6 million, an increase of 25 percent over 2016.
The increase is partially the result of 18 new routes that opened from destinations around the globe into Ben Gurion Airport, including Hainan Airlines from China, Lot of Poland, Ryanair, Wizz Air and WOW.
A new route opened from Shanghai, as tourism from China saw a 46 percent increase over last year, and a whopping 139 percent spike since 2015.
The leading source countries for incoming tourism were the US, then Russia, France, Germany and the United Kingdom.
The most visited sites in Israel over the past year were Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, the Dead Sea, Tiberias, and the Sea of Galilee area.
A little over half of the tourists, 54 percent, were Christian, with 25 percent of them visiting as pilgrims. Another 22 percent were Jewish, and the rest came from other religions or were not affiliated.
For 41 percent of tourists, their visit in 2017 was not their first to Israel.

Israel thwarted a plot by terrorists to carry out shooting attacks in Judea and Samaria, a scheme that Hamas guided and funded from Gaza.
By: World Israel News Staff
Israel’s combined security services nabbed a 17-man Palestinian terror cell in November that was working to execute terror attacks in Judea and Samaria, with guidance from Hamas in Gaza.
The Shin Bet (Israel’s Security Agency) revealed Monday that the main figure behind the elaborate terror plot is Abdallah Arar, a terrorist who was involved in the kidnapping and murder of Sasson Nureil in 2005.
Arar was captured by Israel and was subsequently released in the 2011 prisoner exchange with Hamas, during which Israel released some 1,000 Palestinian terrorists in exchange for IDF soldier Gilad Shalit. Arar has since returned to terrorism.
Arar is suspected of ordering Ala Salim, a resident of Jabba in the Binyamin region, to establish a terror cell and acquire an M16 assault rifle for the purpose of carrying out terror attacks. Arar gave Salim funds for this purpose.

World Israel News asked Israeli academics and diplomats as well as family members and friends about their expectations and hopes for 2018.  
By Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
Ambassador Danny Ayalon (former deputy foreign minister) – I expect a continued stalemate with the Palestinians. I do think that Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas will depart the scene, but I do not envision any progress or reconciliation. The Palestinians will mend their relations with the US because of the aid money. Political warfare BDS will intensify.  Regionally, we must keep a close eye on Syria and Lebanon, and much depends on the internal situation in Iran
Amotz Asa-el (journalist and political commentator) – The new year finds the region extremely fragile. The name of the game is Iran. How will it rise or fall? Israel’s task is to be very vigil but  careful to stay out of the fray. Iranian developments will be key for the region.
Prof. Avraham Diskin (political scientist) – It will be an interesting year. The internal fate of the Israeli governing coalition will be decided this year and we could very well go to elections. The new year’s activities will largely be determined by the decision of the attorney general on whether to indict Prime Minister Netanyahu. We must closely watch will happen to Netanyahu in 2018 and what will happen to President Donald Trump and his presidency.
Dr. Gershon Baskin (Palestinian affairs expert) – I am hoping for and expecting a leadership change in 2018 for Israel and the Palestinians. That’s the only hope for progress towards peace.  2018 should be a critical year in making a decision about the 50-year Israeli “occupation” of the West Bank.

Israeli security experts predict 2018 war with Iranian proxies

An Israeli think tank warns of several security threats in the coming year including war with Iranian proxies the north
The Institute For National Security Studies warned Monday of the danger of “The First Northern War” as executive Director Maj. Gen. (Res.) Amos Yadlin submitted the 2018 National Assessment to President Reuven Rivlin.
The annual report on the security challenges facing Israel in the year ahead warned of three possible scenarios on the northern front: A war with Hezbollah, war with Hezbollah and Syria supported by other Iranian proxies and a war with Hezbollah and Syria with full-blown Iranian involvement.
Iran continues to arm and finance proxies near Israel’s borders as an arm against Israel, and Tehran’s steps to build a military force in Syria may, given the Israeli government’s resolute policy of dealing with this threat, lead to an escalation on the northern front, the report said.  Such a conflict, according to the assessment would likely lead to confrontation on the Syrian and Lebanese fronts simultaneously with the integration of forces of Hezbollah, the Syrian regime, and forces serving Iran. Noting the presence of Russian forces in Syria, the report said Moscow could be expected to maintain neutrality, but could impose limitations on Israel’s freedom of action.
Possible confrontation in the south
The second major security challenge for Israel in the year ahead, the report noted, is the possibility of military confrontation in the south.
The potential for a flare-up with Hamas in Gaza continues, the report said.  According to the INSS, while Hamas remains deterred, it continues to build its strength, and even if both sides wish to avoid full-blown conflict, confrontation may break out due to a variety of circumstances including uncontrolled escalation of a localized incident; an initiative of Jihadi elements; difficulties in implementing the internal Palestinian reconciliation agreement, or tensions surrounding the issue of Jerusalem.
The assessment noted Gaza’s socio-economic crisis as a major stress point that could lead to an outbreak of hostilities. It also pointed out that the IDF’s recent progress in developing solutions to uncover Hamas’ cross-border tunnels – a major strategic asset for the organization – could lead it to initiate confrontation.
Third challenge: ISIS

Rare First Temple-era Hebrew seal found at Western Wall

With the rare discovery near the Western Wall of a seal owned by Jerusalem’s governor some 2,700 years ago, the Biblical narrative comes alive. 
By: World Israel News Staff
Israeli archaeologists excavating the Western Wall Plaza recently made a unique and significant discovery when they unearthed a stamped piece of clay from the First Temple period which belonged to the “governor of the city” of Jerusalem, the mst prominent local position to be held in Jerusalem 2,700 years ago.

The extraordinary find is a small lump of clay, stamped and pre-fired. It measures 13 by 15 mm and is 2 to 3 mm thick. The upper part of the seal depicts two men facing each other in a mirror-like manner, and the lower part holds an inscription in ancient Hebrew script. Its exact use is yet unknown.
Dr. Shlomit Weksler-Bdolah, excavator of the site on behalf of the Israel Antiques Authority (IAA), believes that the seal “had been attached to an important transport and served as some sort of logo, or as a tiny souvenir, which was sent on behalf of the governor of the city.”
She further suggested that “it is likely that one of the buildings in our excavation was the destination of this transport sent by the city governor.”
Finding a seal with this high-ranking title, in addition to the large assemblage of other seals found in the building in the past, supports the assumption that the excavated area, located on the western slopes of the western hill of ancient Jerusalem, was inhabited by high ranking officials during the First Temple period.
Support for the Biblical narrative

Israeli experts: Iran protests more powerful than 2009 unrest

Israeli observers note that calls for “regime change” have reverberated throughout Iran, where citizens have defied a government run by fanatical Islamic clerics.
By: Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
It’s been only several days since widespread anti-government demonstrations erupted in Iran, but Israeli analysts are already calling the protests potentially more significant and already more widespread than anti-government disturbances in 2009.
The protests are challenging the nearly 40 year clerical-rule of the Islamic Republic in the largest disturbances since Iranian protests against the outcome of the 2009 presidential elections. The protesters are calling for “regime change” in a nation that wields considerable clout over much of the Middle East, including Syria, Lebanon, Yemen and Iraq.
The scattered protests focused on economic grievances in multiple Iranian cities, targeting alleged financial corruption, budget allocations for religious institutions and the bankruptcy of retirement funds. Some of the angriest demonstrations broke out in the cities of Mashhad, Kermanshah, Isfahan and even Qom, the bedrock of Shiite clerical rule. Protesters have included members of the middle class, student activists, working class dissidents and labor unionists.
The protesters are not calling for reform, instead demanding the resignation of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and President Hassan Rouhani.
Slogans of the protesters (translated into English) include: “We don’t want an Islamic Republic”; “Independence, Freedom, Iranian Republic”; “We are getting poor and clerics are driving fancy cars”; “We will die but we will take Iran back”; “Come out to the streets Iranians, shout for your rights”; “Death to the Revolutionary Guards”; and “Not Gaza, not Lebanon, my life for Iran.”
Poverty, crime, and repression, not election results

By: World Israel News Staff
An Israeli minister extended greetings to Iranian protesters demonstrating throughout the Islamic Republic.
Minister of Transportation and Intelligence Yisrael Katz told IDF Radio on Monday that while Israel is not involved in the uprising, he wishes the Iranian people “success in the struggle for freedom and democracy.
In recent days Iran has seen widespread anti-government protests on basic issues such as employment and the high cost of living, the largest since those that followed a disputed election in 2009.
Several demonstrators have reportedly been killed in the clashes.
President Donald Trump again voiced his support for the demonstrators on Sunday when he tweeted that the US stands with the “peaceful protestors in Iran who are speaking out for freedom and we condemn the arrests of innocents.”
“The time has come for the regime in Tehran to end terrorist activities, corruption, & their disregard for human rights,” Trump added.
Ignoring the voices on the street, an Iranian minister blamed Israel and the US for “gleefully” cheering the protests, “as if something was happening in Iran.”

The success rate of the Israeli government in getting social media sites to remove dangerous content has jumped from 50% in 2015 to 85% in 2017.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
The Ministry of Justice made thousands of requests to social media sites to take down “harmful” or “dangerous” posts over the past year, the head of the cyber unit at Israel’s State Attorney’s office, Haim Wismonsky, told a Knesset parliamentary committee Monday. Eighty-five percent of the time, the sites – mainly Twitter, YouTube and Facebook – have acquiesced, he said.
According to a report in Calcalist, this comes down to a huge number of take-downs. In 2016, the government asked for 2,250 posts or social media pages to be removed, and was answered positively 70% of the time. The past year’s total, representing an 85% increase, will not be available for another month, but “the amount of content multiplied several-fold,” said Wismonsky. “There was an enormous spike.”

“The US should know that the button for nuclear weapons is on my table,” North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said.
By: AP
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said Monday the United States should be aware that his country’s nuclear forces are now a reality, not a threat. But he also struck a conciliatory tone in his New Year’s address, wishing success for the Winter Olympics set to begin in the South in February and suggesting the North may send a delegation to participate.
Kim, wearing a Western-style gray suit and tie, said in his customary annual address his country had achieved the historic feat of “completing” its nuclear forces and added he has a nuclear button on his desk.
“The US should know that the button for nuclear weapons is on my table,” he said during the speech. “The entire area of the US mainland is within our nuclear strike range. … The United States can never start a war against me and our country.”
Kim also called for improved relations with the South, an idea mentioned in speeches more often than it is met. He said the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics would be a good opportunity to showcase the status of the Korean nation.
He said the North and South could meet urgently to discuss the North sending a delegation.

Due to India’s objections, the Palestinian envoy to Pakistan was recalled after he appeared at a rally with a Muslim cleric linked to the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.
By: AP and World Israel News Staff
The Palestinians have withdrawn their envoy to Pakistan after India objected to his appearance at a rally with a radical Muslim cleric linked to the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.
India lodged a protest with the Palestinians Saturday, calling the envoy’s association with Saeed “unacceptable.”
Palestinian envoy Walid Abu Ali shared the stage with Hafiz Saeed, the head of the hard-line Jamaat-ud-Dawa movement, at Friday’s rally, which was held to protest US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
The rally in Rawalpindi, attended by thousands, was organized by the Defense of Pakistan Council, an alliance of religious parties dominated by Saeed’s group. Jamaat-ud-Dawa is believed to be a front for Lashker-e-Taiba, an Islamic terror group that fights Indian troops in the disputed region of Kashmir, and which was blamed for the November 2008 Mumbai attacks, which killed 166 people.
Saeed, the founder of Lashker-e-Taiba, is wanted by the US, which has offered a $10 million reward for his arrest, but Pakistan has refused extradition requests and allows him to operate relatively freely. He was recently placed under house arrest for 11 months but was released after a court ruled in his favor.
Saeed denies involvement in the 2008 attacks, and Pakistan says India has not provided enough evidence to charge him. US officials have long accused Pakistan of harboring terrorists, allegations denied by Islamabad.
India was among 128 countries to vote against US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital recently. In a statement Saturday addressed to India, the Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said the envoy’s participation “in the presence of individuals accused of supporting terrorism” was “an unintended mistake, but not justified.” It said the envoy has been recalled.

Renewed protests in Iran against the regime and the deteriorating living conditions in the country could bring about positive change.
By: Daniel Krygier, Political Analyst, World Israel News
Like all empires and despotic regimes, the Iranian Mullah regime has a shelf life that it desperately seeks to prolong. The renewed popular protests in Iran against the regime and the deteriorating living conditions in the country could potentially bring profound positive change for Israel, the Middle East and the world.
Alongside Turkey, Iran stands out as a Muslim non-Arab country in a Middle East region dominated by the Arab world. Prior to the Islamic Revolution in 1979, Israel and Iran enjoyed close economic and security relations. Iran was never a democracy but under the Shah, Iranian society embraced Western-style modernity and education.
Despite nearly four decades of harsh Islamist rule, much of Iranian society remains committed to modernity and peaceful relations with the West and the outside world. Unlike the more traditional Islamic Arab world, state-sponsored anti-Semitism appears to have failed to strike deeper roots among much of Iranian forward-looking society that secretly embraces the modern lifestyle and freedom of Israel and the rest of the Western world.
The Iranian Ayatollah-led regime has for decades invested in expanding its predatory influence throughout the Middle East and beyond at the expense of its own people. While most Iranians live in poverty under an oppressive regime, Iran’s Islamist leadership has invested heavily in establishing a Shiite empire stretching from the Persian Gulf to the Mediterranean Sea.
Unlike Iraq’s former dictator, Saddam Hussein, Iran’s regime has masked its aggression and imperialist ambitions by outsourcing its dirty work to its proxies like Hezbollah in Lebanon, Hamas in Gaza, Assad in Syria and the Houthis in Yemen.

In a victory for the Israeli right, over 1,000 members of the Likud party’s Central Committee called unanimously Sunday evening for its representatives in government to formally annex parts of Judea and Samaria and allow unlimited construction in the Jewish communities.
The resolution reads: “Fifty years after the liberation of Judea and Samaria, and with them Jerusalem, our eternal capital, the Likud Central Committee calls on Likud’s elected leaders to work to allow unhindered construction and to extend Israeli law and sovereignty in all the areas of liberated settlement in Judea and Samaria.”
