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.

Brooklyn Holocaust museum focuses on faith, survival

Brooklyn Holocaust museum focuses on faith, survival(Bundesarchiv/Wikicommons)
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.”

Israeli analysts say speech by the Palestinian leader reflects his true colors as an ideological denier of Jewish rights in the Land of Israel.
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.

The State Department said it was releasing the rest of the installment — $60 million — to prevent the agency from running out of cash by the end of the month and closing down.
The U.S. is UNWRA’s largest donor, supplying nearly 30 percent of its budget.

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

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

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

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

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

By: Adina Katz, World Israel News

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

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

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

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

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.

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!”

Speaking to the foreign and foreign language press, Prime Minister Netanyahu challenged the Palestinians to return to the peace talks as he awaits President Trump’s “ultimate” deal.
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.

Prime Minister Benjamin was updated on Wednesday on developments concerning the investigation into the murder of Rabbi Raziel Shevach by Palestinian terrorists on Tuesday night.
Security officials are focusing on intelligence gathering in order to nab the perpetrators.

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.

Police arrested three members of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a designated terrorist group, who had planned to hold illegal gatherings in two Jerusalem hotels on Tuesday.
Police Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told World Israel News that the move came after police received concrete intelligence of the planned events. Based on section 69 of the 2016 anti-terrorism law, he said, a decision was made to arrest them. Rosenfeld said police units arrived in the area to prevent the first event from taking place and also thwarted attempts to move the meeting to a nearby location.

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.

By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
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.

By: AP
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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Palestinians in Bethlehem on Saturday assaulted Theophilos III, the patriarch of the Greek Orthodox Church in Jerusalem, as he visited the city for the Greek Orthodox Christmas Eve.
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 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. The demonstrators were demanding that Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei spend Iranian money for Iranian people — and only for Iranian people.

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

The fear of a humanitarian disaster is reportedly leading Israel’s prime minister to privately ask the US not to carry through on its threat.
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.

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.

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.

By: World Israel News Staff
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

Israeli security experts predict 2018 war with Iranian proxiesAn IDF tank in action. (IDF spokesman)

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.

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.”

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.

Syrian and Iranian forces are reportedly conquering the area adjacent to Israel’s border, creating a new and threatening reality. 
By: World Israel News Staff
Syria’s army and Iranian militias have recently made significant progress in recapturing rebel-held areas adjacent to Israel’s northern border, the latest Iranian military expansion in the war-torn country.
According to a report by Reuters, the Syrian army and the Iran-backed Shi‘ite forces advanced east and south of the rebel-held bastion of Beit Jin, backed by some of the heaviest aerial and artillery bombing since the assault to seize the area began over two months ago.
The enclave is the last rebel-held area left in the region southwest of Damascus. Sunni rebels still have a sizable presence in the Quneitra area, in the Syrian Golan Heights and right near Israel’s border.
Reuters quoted a “Western intelligence source” confirming reports that Iranian-backed militias, including the Hezbollah terror group, were playing a major role in the ongoing battles.
“The Iranian backed militias are trying to consolidate their sphere of influence all the way from southwest of Damascus to the Israeli border,” Suhaib al Ruhail, an official from the Liwa al Furqan rebel group that operates in the area, told Reuters.
Israel has repeatedly expressed concern regarding an Iranian presence on its border, a reality that would create a new and acute security threat and open another military front. Issues of concern include a “Shiite corridor” with land links from Iran to Lebanon, providing free movement for terrorists and weapons across the region.
Israel reportedly relayed a sharp message to President Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria earlier this month, stating that it will not accept Iranian bases or forces on its border and will act against them – and against Assad himself – if need be.
Iran is actively working to establish a military presence in Syria, augmented by Shiite militias, chiefly the Hezbollah terror group. Furthermore, Iran is reportedly working to build precision missile factories in the country as well as air and sea ports.
Iran and its proxies have been supporting the Assad regime in the Syrian civil war and have deployed a force estimated at 500 Iranian army soldiers, 5,000 Hezbollah terrorists and several thousand guerrillas from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq.

While confirming Israel’s departure in 2018, the head of the UN cultural body urged the Jewish state to work “inside UNESCO” to “overcome differences.”
By: Ebin Sandler, World Israel News
Director-General of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), Audrey Azoulay, announced on Friday that Carmel Shama Hacohen, Israel’s Ambassador to UNESCO, officially submitted a letter of withdrawal from the organization. Israel’s departure will be effective as of December 31, 2018.
While Israel has been a UNESCO member since 1949, mounting hostility in the UN body toward the Jewish state left Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and a number of other Israeli elected officials questioning the the benefits of UNESCO membership.
UNESCO’s recent anti-Israel initiatives include a July resolution supported by Muslim-majority countries declaring Israel an “occupying power” in the Old City of Jerusalem, which is both the home of Judaism’s holiest site, the Temple Mount, and territory that Israel secured via its military victory in 1967’s Six Day War.
Previously, UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee considered motions to keep the Old City of Jerusalem on its list of endangered sites and to have the Old City of Hebron – including the Jewish holy site the Tomb of the Patriarchs – added to the list and registered under the “State of Palestine.”

Knesset opposition challenges law barring police from recommending ‘high profile’ indictments

Knesset opposition challenges law barring police from recommending ‘high profile’ indictmentsYesh Atid party chairman Yair Lapid in parliamentary session on 'recommendations law.' (Hadas Parush/Flash90)
The government-sponsored ‘recommendations law’, barring police from recommending indictments of high-profile suspects after wrapping up their investigations, passed into law after a 43-hour Knesset filibuster. The opposition rushed to petition the High Court.
By Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
The Yesh Atid party and the Movement for Quality government were at the High Court of Justice the moment it opened on Thursday morning to challenge the controversial ‘recommendations law’ only hours after it was passed into law. The bill passed its second and third readings by a vote of 59 in favor and 54 opposed after a 43-hour filibuster.
The Knesset was effectively paralyzed for the past two days, and Knesset members were obliged to sleep in their offices as coalition and opposition members remained fully mobilized throughout the legislative marathon.
The law prevents police from recommending to prosecutors whether there is enough evidence to indict suspects it has investigated. Originally, the bill was designed to prevent police from making recommendations in the ongoing corruption investigation of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Due to strong objection, the coalition was forced to have the law apply only to future cases, so it will not impact Netanyahu probes or those relating to former coalition chair David Biton, Labor Minister Haim Katz or Interior Minister Aryeh Deri.
Leading Political Scientist Prof. Avraham Diskin told World Israel News (WIN), “This was a redundant law that will have very little practical effect. It was clearly designed in an effort to derail the corruption case against Netanyahu. Once the law no longer relates to ongoing cases, it is no longer relevant. Unfortunately, the coalition had to continue with the façade. They had said it was not about Netanyahu, and so they had to continue to push until it was passed.”

In honor of Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem, Israel is naming a new station at the Western Wall after the US President. 
By: World Israel News Staff
A new train station that will be built next to the Kotel, the Western Wall, will be named after US President Donald Trump, Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz stated this week.
“The Western Wall is the holiest place for the Jewish people, and I decided to call the train station that leads to it after President Trump following his historic and brave decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel,” Katz stated.
The Yediot Aharonot daily reported that Katz approved construction plans for the train, which will include a tunnel from a station at the entrance to Jerusalem to the the Jewish Quarter in the Old City, only a short distance from the Western Wall.
In May, Trump became the first sitting US president to visit the Western Wall. In a highly anticipated gesture, Trump secreted a note in a crack between the weathered, massive 2000-year-old ashlars of the Kotel.

By Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
Shortly after Guatemala stepped up to become the first country to follow the United States and recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely announced that at least 10 other countries are already in talks and could make the move as well.
Which are those countries? Israeli officials are being discreet about naming those in question so as not to prejudice the outcome. In conversation with World Israel News (WIN), Foreign Ministry spokesman Emanuel Nachshon confirmed that the campaign to convince other nations to move their embassies to Jerusalem is underway and picking up support. Nachshon told WIN, “It’s our policy not to speak about specific countries at this time because we want them to make their choice without undue pressure.

US envoy: Stop calling Judea and Samaria ‘occupied’

US envoy: Stop calling Judea and Samaria ‘occupied’US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman (David Azgury/US Embassy Tel Aviv)
Will the US State Department change the way it relates to Judea and Samaria?
By: World Israel News Staff
US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman has requested that the State Department stop using the term “occupied” when relating to Israeli control of Judea and Samaria.
According to a report by Israel Radio on Tuesday, Friedman suggested that the State Department relate to Judea and Samaria in neutral terms by calling it the “West Bank” instead of “the occupied territories.”
The State Department has reportedly refused Friedman’s request, saying their terminology was the outcome of a decades-old policy, but due to “pressure from above” the two sides agreed that the issue will be discussed again and that President Donald Trump will make the final decision on the matter.
Friedman is a noted supporter of the communities in Judea and Samaria. In an interview with the Jerusalem Post in September, he said the region was under an “alleged occupation.”

Iran declares Jerusalem the ‘everlasting capital of Palestine’

Less than a month after the US declared that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital, the Iranian parliament unanimously passed a resolution declaring that the same city is instead the “everlasting capital of Palestine.”
By: World Israel News Staff
On Wednesday, the Iranian parliament voted 207 to 0 to recognize Jerusalem as the Palestinian’s permanent capital, the Iranian Fars news agency reported.
The Islamic Republic’s lawmakers took the step just three weeks after US President Donald Trump announced that the US recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and intends to move the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The outcry from Muslim and Arab countries was immediate following the announcement, producing a United Nations (UN) resolution condemning the US’ decision.
The Iranian parliament advanced its pro-Palestinian motion “in response to the recent US decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in hopes of dealing a blow to Muslims,” said speaker Ali Larijani according the Turkish Anadolu news agency.
The Hamas terrorist organization recently confirmed Iran’s commitment to helping it fight Israel, with Hamas’ Gaza-based leader, Yahya Sinwar, claiming that senior Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani had placed all of Iran’s military “capabilities and potential” at Hamas’ disposal “in the battle for the defense of Jerusalem.”

The Shin Bet revealed the full details surrounding the murder of IDF Sgt. Ron Kokia.
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
The terror cell that murdered IDF Sgt. Ron Kokia in Arad at the end of November, while he was waiting at a bus stop, had planned an elaborate abduction plot, the Shin Bet (Israel’s Security Agency) revealed Friday.
Israeli forces arrested Khaled Abu Jaudah and Zahi Abu Jaudah, Israeli Bedouin citizens who reside in the Negev and who have no prior security record, a day after the attack.
Khaled confessed to murdering Kokia and stealing his service weapon. He said that Zahi served as his confidant and aided him after the attack.
Khaled identifies with terrorist organizations and holds extremist views, the Shin Bet said.
Khaled initially planned to kidnap a soldier in order to advance the release of Palestinian prisoners. To this end, he planned to use anesthetics to which he had access due to his work at Soroka Medical Center in Be’er Sheva.
He later decided to murder an IDF soldier in revenge for IDF actions in Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip as well as stealing his weapon for use in future attacks.

By: Ebin Sandler, World Israel News
Residents of Judea and Samaria notched a victory on Wednesday when the Israeli government approved the transfer of more than $11 to regional councils in the area.
The government allocated the majority of this support to strengthen security measures, with the remainder to be used for first aid stations and additional staff.
While critics of the transfer accused Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of engaging in a quid pro quo with religious Zionist factions to garner support in the face of corruption investigations, a government spokesperson denied the connection existed. “This proposal is something that we deal with towards the end of every year. Last year, we had a similar discussion on December 29, 2016,” responded the spokesperson.
Earlier in the year, the Israeli government passed a measure allocating a significant sum to construct safer roads in Judea and Samaria, which are used by Israelis and Palestinian Authority vehicles alike.

By: TPS and World Israel News
Five days after Japan voted in favor of a UN resolution condemning US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, no mention of the city’s status was made when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hosted Japan’s foreign minister Taro Kono in Jerusalem on Monday.
At a press conference before their meeting, Netanyahu and Kono put the issue aside, focusing on trade and technology ties between the two nations.
“The future belongs to those who innovate. Japan has tremendous capabilities in science, engineering and industry. Israel has developed unique capabilities in innovation in every field and I believe that the fact that the fact that Japanese companies are coming to Israel expressed this unique partnership which has limitless potential,” Netanyahu said.
Kono, on his first visit to Israel as foreign minister but his fourth in general, said bilateral ties were booming. “The number of Japanese companies operating in Israel has doubled in the past three years and Japanese investments have grown 20 times in that time,” Kono said. “I think the bilateral relationship is going very well and we would like to continue this momentum.”

Not long after Denmark announced it will no longer fund certain Palestinian organizations, Norway declared it is cutting aid to groups that boycott Israel.
By: Ebin Sandler, World Israel News
Norway is reportedly prepared to cut aid to Palestinian organizations that support anti-Israel boycotts. The move came less than a week after Denmark announced its intention to revoke funding for certain Palestinian organizations and increase scrutiny of others based on documented anti-Israel activities.
The chage in direction from Oslo is reportedly an expression of the Scandinavian nation’s support for Israeli-Palestinian dialogue and its opposition to anti-Israel boycotts, according to a government statement reported by Hadashot TV.
In a similar move on Friday, the Danish Foreign Ministry announced it will more strictly vet allocation of funds to Palestinian organizations, a decision necessitated by revelations that Denmark funded Palestinian groups which instigate anti-Israel incitement and promote boycotts of the Jewish state.

Omar al-Abed, the 19-year-old Palestinian terrorist who slaughtered three members of one family in July during their Shabbat dinner, was convicted of three counts of murder in an Israeli military court on Wednesday.
The court also convicted al-Abed of two counts of attempted murder, one count of incitement to terrorism and other offenses.
Abed broke into the family home in Halamish, aka Neve Tsuf, a Jewish community in Samaria, and stabbed 70-year-old Yossi Salamon, his son Elad, 36, and his daughter Chaya, 46; Yossi’s wife Tova, 68, was seriously wounded. The extended family was there to celebrate the birth of a new grandchild. When the attack occurred, they were awaiting the arrival of their first guests.

The Palestinian leader’s remarks rejecting Israeli statehood and refusing US involvement in the peace process are taking Mahmoud Abbas on a collision course with Washington.
By: Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas may have finally gone too far. His speech at the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) used words that managed to even force the extreme liberal J Street Mideast policy group to issue a rare condemnation of Abbas’ speech as “divisive and inflammatory.”
Speaking in Arabic, Abbas told the gathering that the Palestinians would no longer work with the US and threatened that he does not feel bound by commitments agreed to in Oslo and subsequent rounds of peace talks. While demanding that the US must roll back its recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, Abbas threatened, “If there is no Palestinian state along the June 1967 borders with Jerusalem as its capital, there will not be peace in the region, in the territories or in the world.”

Furious over Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as capital of Israel, the Turkish president vowed to open an embassy in the “State of Palestine.”
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Protesting President Donald Trump’s announcement that the US will move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, the Turkish leader announced that he will also open an embassy there – to the “State of Palestine,” in the eastern part of the city.
“God willing, the day is close when officially, with God’s permission, we will open our embassy there,” Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said on Sunday.
As Israel controls all of Jerusalem and would hardly allow such a move on Turkey’s part, the declaration must be seen as a purely political move by Erdoğan, who uses harsh anti-Israel rhetoric as a way to gain popularity on the Arab street.
Sunday’s announcement follows hard on the heels of his livid words at an emergency summit of the 57-member Organization of Islamic Cooperation last week in Istanbul, where he said the US is “a partner in bloodshed” with Israel and called for the world to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of “Palestine”.

The schedule for the upcoming visit of US Vice President Mike Pence is taking shape without two major events. There will be no meeting with Mahmoud Abbas or the Palestinian leadership. There will also be no lighting of the Hanukkah menorah at the Western Wall.
The itinerary and dates for the former Indiana governor’s trip have gone through several changes. Palestinian objections to President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel prompted the Palestinian Authority (PA) to revoke the Vice President’s invitation to meet in Ramallah or Bethlehem. Then the date of departure by Pence was pushed back by several days so that the VP could remain in Washington to help push through the tax reform bill that President Trump wants passed before Congress breaks for Christmas recess.

The anti-immigration Austrian People’s Party and the anti-establishment Austrian Freedom Party have reached a deal, creating a new coalition to govern Austria for the next five years. The ground-breaking political alliance, which will be sworn into office on December 18, is poised to catapult Austria to the vanguard of Western Europe’s resistance to mass migration from the Muslim world.
Chancellor-elect Sebastian Kurz, 31, who won Austria’s national election on October 15 after campaigning on a promise to halt illegal immigration, will govern with Heinz-Christian Strache, 48, the Freedom Party leader, who has warned that mass migration is “Islamizing” Austria. Under the agreement, Strache will become the vice-chancellor; the Freedom Party will also take control of the ministries of defense, interior and foreign affairs.

By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
With Christmas just a week away, Nazareth is filled with tens of thousands of tourists and pilgrims. As such, the announcement made last week by the city’s Muslim mayor, Ali Salam, that the municipality was cancelling Christmas festivities, was greeted with more than dismay.
Salam’s original decision to cancel the Christmas celebrations this year was his way of protesting President Donald Trump’s official recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital,
In a video clip made by Reservists on Duty, a nonpolitical organization made up of Israeli reserve combat soldiers and officers who felt it was their duty to expose and counter the Boycott, Divest and Sanctions (BDS) movement, a Christian Arab, Jonathan Elkhoury, spoke forthrightly about how Christians in Israel felt about Salam’s declaration.
“Again, Christians are suffering because of extremist Muslims and Arab leaders who decide what they can and can’t do,” Elkhoury said.
Perhaps in recognition of economic realities, Reuters reported Saturday that Salam denied that he had planned to stop a major portion of the pageantry. “I don’t know why people thought there would be cuts to the celebrations,” he told the news agency. “Everything except for three singers who will not be coming will be held as normal. We have already welcomed 60,000 people to the city today.

By: AP and World Israel News Staff
Senior Trump administration officials outlined their view Friday that Jerusalem’s Western Wall ultimately will be declared a part of Israel, in another declaration sure to inflame passions among Palestinians and others in the Middle East.
Although they said the ultimate borders of the Israeli capital must be resolved through Israeli-Palestinian negotiations, the officials — speaking ahead of Vice President Mike Pence’s trip to the region — essentially ruled out any scenario that didn’t maintain Israeli control over the holy site.
“We cannot envision any situation under which the Western Wall would not be part of Israel. But as the president said, the specific boundaries of sovereignty of Israel are going to be part of the final status agreement,” a senior administration official said. Another official later added by email, “We note that we cannot imagine Israel would sign a peace agreement that didn’t include the Western Wall.”
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss details of the vice president’s upcoming trip.

In reaction to the US’ recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the powers that be in the Christian pilgrimage site of Nazareth announced their intention to cancel Christmas “artistic performances.”
By: World Israel News Staff
While it was originally reported on Thursday that Nazareth mayor Ali Salam would protest the US’ recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital by cancelling Christmas celebrations, this policy was later clarified to explain that only “artistic performances on stages” would be eliminated.
Ali Salam, the Muslim mayor of the Arab Christian city of Nazareth, released a statement announcing that Trump’s decision on Jerusalem last week required him to show solidarity with the Palestinian Authority. “This is the natural reaction to a decision that impacts our nation and Jerusalem,” Salam announced in a press conference in Nazareth, reported TPS.
“We are part of one single people,” he continued, declaring that the US’ decision on Jerusalem had taken “all the joy” from the holiday period.
Nazareth, which Christians consider to be Jesus’ childhood home, is a major tourist destination and pilgrimage site. During the holiday season, the city hosts a Christmas market among a number of other celebrations that attract large crowds from around the world.

Israel expects drought as Sea of Galilee nears historically low level

Israel is facing another year without sufficient rainfall. With advanced technology, however, water programs to make up for the loss. 
By: JNS.org
Israel’s Meteorological Service has forecasted that the country should anticipate insufficient rainfall this winter.
The Israeli prediction—which is based upon assessments of December’s weather forecast as well as European weather models—comes as the Sea of Galilee (also known as the Kinneret), Israel’s largest freshwater lake and a primary water source, approaches a historically low water level.
Based upon weather models used by the European Center for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts, the Jewish state has a 64.7-percent chance of insufficient rainfall during the country’s primary rainy season of December through February.
Israel’s Water Authority warned in October that the Sea of Galilee is critically low and in danger of reaching its “lowest level ever recorded.” As of that month, the sea was 703 feet below sea level, just a few feet above the historical low of 705 below sea level measured in 2001—beneath the water source’s so-called “black line.”

Prime Minister Netanyahu plans to develop solutions to force Hamas to return the bodies of Israeli soldiers and civilians held in Gaza.
By: Ilan Evyatar/TPS
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday that he would convene the security cabinet Sunday to draft “legal, possible solutions” to pressure Hamas to return the bodies of Israeli soldiers and civilians held in Gaza, and called a High Court of Justice ruling requiring the Knesset to pass legislation on the matter “very problematic.”
“We must not give free gifts to Hamas,” Netanyahu said.
Earlier in the day, the Court ruled that “the State of Israel – as a state governed by the rule of law – cannot, in the absence of a specific statute, hold the bodies of terrorists for the purpose of negotiations,” the court wrote in response to a petition filed by the families of Palestinian terrorists whose remains are currently held by Israel.

By: AP and World Israel News Staff
Rutgers University removed a professor accused of posting anti-Semitic statements on Facebook from his position as a director at the New Jersey school.
Michael Chikindas will no longer serve as director of the Center for Digestive Health at the Institute for Food, Nutrition and Health, Rutgers President Robert Barchi said Friday. The tenured food science professor was also barred from teaching required courses and will take cultural sensitivity training courses.
Barchi called the situation “sad and deeply troubling.” He said the university is seeking further disciplinary action against the professor through the faculty union.
Chikindas shared over a period of several months anti-Semitic cartoons along with conspiracy posts that claimed 9/11 was orchestrated by Jews, according to university administrators.
Officials said Chikindas also referred to first lady Melania Trump and Ivanka Trump, daughter of President Donald Trump, as “sluts.”
Administrators said the posts “perpetuated toxic stereotypes” and were upsetting to Jewish students and staff at the university. The professor will be subject to ongoing monitoring “if and when” he returns to teaching, Barchi said.

Israel opening new international airport, expanding original one

Israel opening new international airport, expanding original one(shutterstock)
Eilat will have Israel’s second international airport, set to open in four months’ time, as Ben Gurion Airport begins plans for expansion.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
The new Ilan and Assaf Ramon Airport near Eilat is almost complete, with a target opening date of April 2018. It has been designed to handle the growing number of low-cost flights to Israel, especially for the myriads flying from abroad during the freezing winter months to take advantage of the sun and beaches in the country’s southern-most city. Ultimately, the airfield will serve an expected 4.25 million internal and external tourists annually.
The new airport is designed to replace the two airports that currently service the city: the small one currently located in the center of Eilat that serves domestic flights from Tel Aviv and Haifa, and the Ovda military airfield 65 kilometers away that is used for international flights.
The new set-up will also enable the city to grow and develop. According to the plan, new hotels with 2,070 rooms and 1,000 apartments will be built on a 700-dunam (175-acre) site.

Abbas called Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital a “crime” that threatened world peace.
By: AP and World Israel News Staff
Palestinian Authority (PA) head Mahmoud Abbas said Wednesday that the PA will not accept any role for the US in the Mideast peace process “from now on,” following President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
Abbas spoke at a gathering of heads of state and top officials from Islamic nations at an emergency summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Turkey, in an attempt to forge a unified Muslim world stance against Trump’s move.
Abbas called Trump’s decision a “crime” that threatened world peace. He called on the United Nations (UN) to take charge of the peace process and create a new mechanism, arguing that Washington is no longer “fit” for the task.
The Palestinian leader also said that the Palestinians are committed to a peaceful resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict but that after Trump’s pivot on Jerusalem, Washington is not accepted as a fair negotiator.
Israel the ‘Terror State’
The Istanbul gathering of heads of state and top officials from the 57-member OIC could offer a strong response by the Muslim world to Washington’s move.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan— the current president of the OIC — called on countries to urgently recognize the Palestinian state and Jerusalem as its capital.

Miss Iraq, Sarah Idan, became friendly with fellow contestant Adar Gandelsman, the Israeli contestant in the Miss Universe International Beauty Pageant held in Las Vegas last month. They even posted pictures together on Instagram, wishing “love and peace” to all – but the reaction of Idan’s fellow countrymen has been anything but peaceful.
So many people posted comments that cursed her for this act that the 27-year-old beauty queen felt she had to defend herself, noting in another post that the picture only showed her desire for peace and “does not signal support for the government of Israel and does not mean I agree or accept its policies in the Arab homeland.” And she apologized to anyone who considered it “harmful to the Palestinian cause.” But, courageously, she did not remove the photo from her account.

WIN Exclusive: Palestinians seek upper hand over US by snubbing VP PenceUS Vice President Mike Pence (AP)
Due to a potential tie-breaking vote on tax reform, US Vice President Mike Pence was forced to delay his visit to Israel, a move which the Palestinians have implied was in response to their cancellation of meetings with Pence.
By: Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
The banner headline on the pro-Palestinian news site Middle East Eye reads, “US Vice President postpones trip to Israel, Palestine after Palestinians refuse to meet him.” In point of fact, while VP Mike Pence has delayed his Middle East trip by a “couple of days,” the decision has nothing to do with the Palestinians and everything to do with the US Tax Reform Plan.
While the Vice President was due to visit Israel this Sunday and Monday, including an address in the Knesset, his ability to break a potential tie in a Senate vote on the tax bill appears to have required the VP to postpone this visit to Tuesday or Wednesday. Pence’s role as a tie-breaker became much more critical after Tuesday’s victory by Alabama Democrat Doug Jones, capturing a Republican Senate seat and reducing the Republican majority from 52-48 to 51-49.
Pence’s visit to Israel will be part of a wider regional trip that will take him to Egypt and was supposed to take him to the Palestinian Authority as well.

Netanyahu: ‘Palestinians would do well to recognize reality, work toward peace’
“The Palestinians would do well to recognize reality and work toward peace, not extremism,” Netanyahu stated.
By Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urged the Palestinians to acknowledge reality, and by doing so advance the prospects of peace.
“The Palestinians would do well to recognize reality and work toward peace, not extremism,” Netanyahu stated at the President’s Residence in Jerusalem, at an event for outstanding Mossad personnel.
He called on the Palestinians to “acknowledge an additional fact regarding Jerusalem: Not only is it the capital of Israel but in Jerusalem we uphold freedom of worship for all faiths and it is we who are making this promise in the Middle East even though no one else does and despite frequent severe failures in this regard.”
In reference to the statement by Palestinian Authority (PA) head Mahmoud Abbas that the PA is withdrawing from all peace agreements with Israel since the 1993 Oslo Accords, Netanyahu stated that “all these statements fail to impress us. The truth will win in the end and many countries will certainly recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and will also move their embassies.”
Abbas made the statements during an emergency meeting of the 57-member Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Istanbul that was convened in response to the US’ recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Tillerson: Jerusalem embassy move at least 3 years awaySecretary of State Rex Tillerson (AP/Susan Walsh)
US embassy’s move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is “probably no earlier than three years out,” said the Secretary of State.
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson stated that the move of the American Embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv is “not going to be anything that happens right away … it’s probably no earlier than three years out.”
During remarks given on Tuesday at the State Department, Tillerson was asked about the challenges he foresees as a result of the move of the US diplomatic mission from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Tillerson stressed that the move is “not going to be anything that happens right away.”
“The President has been very clear in his direction to me and to the State Department that with this decision, and by the law – by the law of the 1995 law…we will begin taking the actions necessary to move the embassy,” Tillerson stated.
However, “we’ve got to secure a site that’s suitable. We’ve got to develop building plans that gives us the footprint that we believe we need to carry out the full complements of a mission in Israel, in Jerusalem. And then we have to build the building, and then we make the move,” he explained.
Therefore, “there’s nothing going to happen in the next couple of years because it’ll take us that time to get to a stage that we can begin to actually implement the building itself. So it’s probably no earlier than three years out, and that’s pretty ambitious as it is, but the President has said move ahead,” Tillerson said.

Trump’s UN envoy says “undeniable” evidence proves Iran is violating international law by funneling missiles to Houthi rebels in Yemen.
By World Israel News Staff
AP contributed to this report.
Addressing a press conference at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling military installation in Washington on Thursday, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley provided “undeniable” evidence that Iran is violating international law by funneling missiles to Houthi rebels in Yemen.
Haley unveiled recently declassified evidence, based on a new UN report, including segments of missiles launched at Saudi Arabia from Houthi-controlled territory in Yemen.
The US welcomes the UN report, “as should every nation concerned about Iranian expansion,” she said. “We are grateful for the depth of the UN’s inspection and analysis… The report provides devastating evidence of missiles, conventional arms, and explosive boats of Iranian origin used by the rebels in Yemen – all of which violate UN resolutions.”
The ambassador repeated Trump’s announcement in October that the US was “taking a new approach to Iran by focusing on all of the regime’s destabilizing behavior. That means we are focused not just on the nuclear program. We’re also taking a hard look at Iran’s ballistic missile program, its arms exports, and its support for terrorists, proxy fighters, and dictators.”

By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
IDF forces operating over the course of Thursday night raided several targets in Judea and Samaria as part of their ongoing battle against Palestinian terror.
On Hamas’ 30-year anniversary since its founding on December 14, 1987, IDF forces raided two Palestinian universities, the Al Quds in Abu Dis and Birzeit near Ramallah, and on printing houses in Hebron that produce materials inciting to terrorism. The forces seized and confiscated banners, flags posters and other materials.
Israel maintains that one of the driving forces behind the wave of terror attacks is incitement by the Palestinian leadership and clergy through its state and local media.

Sixteen rockets have been fired at Israel from the Gaza strip in recent days, and the feeling of trepidation is returning for residents of the border town of Sderot who lived through the traumatic experience of the Gaza war in 2014.
The IDF on Thursday issued a warning to Hamas that its “only option is to stop the rocket fire” and that Israel will not tolerate anything less than “complete quiet” on its Gaza border. But those warnings and IDF retaliation did not stop the rocket fire nor have they eased the fears of those living in the Israeli city closest to the Gaza border.

By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
Israel Air Forces (IAF) warplanes bombed Hamas targets inside the Gaza Strip on Wednesday night in response to three rockets fired at the city of Sderot earlier in the evening.
An IDF spokesman said the targets were Hamas facilities used as training and weapons storage compounds.
Earlier in the evening, an IAF Iron Dome battery successfully intercepted two rockets launched from the Gaza Strip towards Israel. An additional rocket was launched from Gaza at Israeli territory and fell in an open area in the Eshkol Regional Council.
United Hatzalah EMS volunteers in Sderot treated a number of people for shock as well as one person who sustained light injuries to his legs while  running to a secured bomb shelter.
“The State of Israel will not allow anyone to harm or attempt to harm its civilians, and will continue to guard its sovereignty,” the IDF stated after its attack on Hamas.
The Hamas terror group did not fire the rockets, however, “The IDF holds the Hamas terror organization responsible for the poverty, destruction, and despair among the citizens of the Gaza Strip,” the spokesman stated.

Two Palestinians terrorists were killed in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, apparently the result of a terrorism-related explosion.
Palestinian media reported that they were riding on a motorcycle when a blast killed them.
Israel’s Channel 2 reported that the terrorists were members of the Islamic Jihad terror group. The Palestinians claim they were killed by an Israeli missile, an assassination from the air.
An IDF spokesman denied the allegation, saying the air force did not carry out any strikes at the time of the explosion. He suspects they were killed by an explosive charge they were carrying, a so-called “work accident.”

Bill Clinton’s victim left out of #MeToo article – media ignores it
December 13, 2017
https://www.conservativeinstitute.org/sex-scandals/clinton-victim-media-ignores.htm?Bill Clinton’s victim left out of #MeToo article – media ignores it
Bryan Pearson / CCL
TIME magazine announced earlier this month that it had named the “the silence breakers” of the #MeToo movement as the 2017 Person of the Year, beating out star candidates like Colin Kaepernick and Robert Mueller. But not everyone is happy about the publication’s decision.

Juanita Broaddrick told Fox News host Martha MacCallum that she is “disappointed” by TIME’s decision to snub her in the publication’s #MeToo special edition.

Broaddrick publicly accused former President Bill Clinton of rape in the 1990s, and has rightfully been on a crusade against the Clinton family since.

“I Was ‘MeToo’ for Decades”
Broaddrick spoke candidly with MacCallum about TIME‘s “Person of the Year” issue on Monday, mentioning that she was disappointed in not being included in that particular edition.

“I was ‘me too’ decades before it was okay to be ‘me too,’” Broaddrick told MacCullum.

Broaddrick conceded that she was contacted by the magazine on Nov. 24 to find out if she “would be interested in participating in a story that they were doing about the #MeToo movement.” Broaddrick did decline at first, citing that she “was #MeToo decades before it was okay to be #MeToo” thus she “didn’t feel part of that,” but the magazine called again days later, asking a request for comment.

She told MacCallum:

I was very happy to do that. I supported these women; I thought they were brave women and I told her: “Yes, I would be happy to submit a comment.” And then a few days went by, and I was so happy when they were declared “Person of the Year,” and when I went to look for my comments, they weren’t there. That disappointed me.

“Fairness”
MacCallum, who noted that Broaddrick stood by now-President Donald Trump throughout the course of his campaign, also asked Broaddrick for her thoughts about the three women who recently repeated their sexual harassment allegations against the president.

“I think every victim of sexual abuse has the right to be heard and they need to have fairness accordingly,” Broaddrick responded. “I have no idea what is true and what’s not true. I can only speak to my own situation. It was something I lived through and that’s all I can speak to. I can’t speak to others.”

See Broaddrick’s full interview:

#MeToo Movement Grows by the Day
Tens of thousands of men and women worldwide have used the hashtag #MeToo in the last several weeks to highlight their personal tales of iniquitous, odious, and powerful individuals abusing their positions to take advantage of them.

And even beyond the Twitter hashtag, bombshell reports have been released by major publications, accusing big names of sexual improprieties. The past has come back to haunt A-list stars from Charlie Rose to Matt Lauer to Dustin Hoffman — but there has still been only a few mentions of former President Clinton’s escapades.

If Broaddrick’s account of TIME‘s interactions is correct, then the media is clearly still complicit in shielding the Clinton family. They are picking and choosing which women they’ll listen to and believe and women they won’t — and that is just disgusting.

By: World Israel News Staff
Terrorists in the Gaza Strip fired a rocket at Israel on Tuesday, setting off sirens in the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council. The rocket fell in open space, causing no injuries or damage.
In response, the Israeli Air Force (IAF) targeted a Hamas military compound in the southern Gaza Strip.
While it is unlikely that Hamas fired the rocket, the IDF holds the terror group, which rules Gaza, accountable for all hostile acts originating in the Strip.
Recent days have seen a spike in rockets attacks from Gaza following President Donald Trump’s announcement that the US recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. A total of 10 rockets have been fired at Israel in the past week.
A similar exchange of fire occurred on Monday night.

By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News Staff
Israeli security forces were successful in thwarting a plot by a Hamas terror cell to abduct Israelis over the course of the Chanukah holiday.
The Shin Bet (Israel’s Security Agency) revealed Wednesday that it exposed and has been tracking the cell over the course of the past two months. The plot was thwarted at its planning stages, after the cell had collected intelligence on their target area.
The terror cell, based out of the Palestinian village of Tel, near Shechem (Nablus) in Samaria, planned to pose as Israelis and kidnap an IDF soldier or Israeli civilian waiting for a ride.
The cell was led by Mouad Ashtiya, 26, who planned the attack, acquired the weapons, sought out possible hiding places for the abductees and recruited other cell members.
Mohamed Ramadan and Ahmed Ramadan, both 19, were cell members.
The group was in contact with Omar Asida, a Gaza-based Hamas financier entrusted with bankrolling Hamas’ operations in Judea and Samaria.

Analysis: Recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital equals recognizing reality Israelis dance with Israeli flag in the Old City on Jerusalem Day. (Nati Shohat/Flash90)
As the first US president coming from outside the establishment, Trump brings a fresh dynamic and approach to the Middle East and beyond.
By: Daniel Krygier, Political Analyst, World Israel News
US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital has been predictably condemned across the Muslim world as well as among Western liberal political elites. According to the logic of Trump’s critics, recognizing the Jewish state’s capital is “undermining” the prospects for peace between Jews and Arabs.
Western liberal self-appointed Middle East experts continue clinging to the fallacy that all Middle Eastern problems could be solved if sufficient pressure is applied on Israel and Jews to give in to the Palestinian leadership’s genocidal demands. However, this failed policy has been tried for several decades without bringing Jews and Arabs closer to a lasting peace. Quite the contrary, Western leaders have effectively undermined any genuine peace prospects by encouraging Arab leaders to maintain their extremist positions towards Israel.
Western pro-Arab appeasement policies perfectly illustrate the popular definition of insanity as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. However, the Western establishment’s Middle East policy makers are not in a rush to adapt their policies to harsh Middle Eastern realities.
As the first US president coming from outside the establishment, Trump brings a fresh dynamic and approach to the Middle East and beyond.

Palestinian terrorists were again caught red-handed using an ambulance as cover for an act of violence.
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
Masked Palestinian rioters in the Ramallah area were caught using an ambulance as a means of transportation on their way to a violent incident.
The IDF spokesman on Monday published a clip of a Red Crescent ambulance transporting Palestinian rioters to join a protest against IDF soldiers.
“This is an unacceptable and dangerous violation of the trust placed in medical organizations,” the IDF stated.
The use of ambulances as cover for Palestinian terrorism has been repeatedly documented. Most recently, on Saturday, the IDF published a photo of Palestinians riding in an ambulance while throwing rocks at IDF forces.
“The rioters knew that security forces in the field would not employ riot dispersal tactics against an ambulance, and they used it to harm the forces while shielding themselves,” the IDF charged.
On the morning of July 22, 2014, IDF forces engaged terrorists in the Gaza Strip, killing 10 of them. Other terrorists used an ambulance as a means to escape. In order to avoid the possibility of civilian casualties, the IDF did not target the ambulance.

A government crisis may be in the offing as the Yisrael Beiteinu party bucks the coalition over a law that would force closure of convenience stores on the Sabbath.
By: Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
It took a 12 hour Knesset plenum, ending at 4:30 AM on Tuesday, before the coalition managed to pass the controversial so-called “Grocery store” bill on its first reading. The vote was 59-54 in favor of the legislation that would force the closure of stores on the Sabbath.
The ultra-Orthodox Shas and United Torah Judaism parties insist that the coalition advance the bill that requires stores to receive permission from the Interior Minister to remain open on Saturdays. Tel Aviv is exempt from the legislation because the Supreme Court recently ruled that the city can allow mini-markets to stay open on the Sabbath.

The IDF arrested dozens of Palestinian terror suspects, including Hassan Yousef, a senior Hamas leader.
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
IDF forces on Wednesday arrested Hassan Yousef, a senior Hamas leader, in the village of Beitunia, near Ramallah. The Israeli forces did not encounter resistance.
Yousef, 62, one of the founding members of the terror organization, was arrested for incitement to terrorism. Earlier this week, he called for a violent response to President Donald Trump’s historic recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
Yousef was recently released from administrative detention. A main instigator of violence against Israel among the Palestinians, he has been in and out of the Israeli prison system for decades.
Yousef’s son, Mosab Yousef, code-named the “Green Prince,” was an Israeli asset working for the Shin Bet within the terror organization for a decade, helping to sabotage dozens of terrorist attacks. He subsequently fled to the US, where he advocates against Islamic extremism, violence and terror.

By: Jack Ben-David, World Israel News
The Jewish Agency’s chairman, Natan Sharansky, criticized the Jewish Reform movement on Tuesday following objections vocalized by the liberal stream’s leader to President Donald Trump’s declaration that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital.
“The Reform response to the recognition of Jerusalem was terrible,” said Sharansky in an interview with Israel Radio, adding that the movement persistently slams the US president.
“Everything said by Trump is bad, from their point of view,” Sharansky said.
“When the leader of a superpower recognizes Jerusalem, first you have to welcome it, then offer disagreement. This time it was the opposite,” he added in reference to Reform leader Rick Jacob’s hostility to Trump’s announcement that he had instructed the US State Department to begin making plans for moving the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Following Trump’s announcement, Jacobs said that his movement affirms a “long-held” view that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish people and the State of Israel, but decried the decision to move the embassy and what he implied was an inopportune time

A Palestinian terrorist was shot and wounded on Tuesday in an incident initially reported as an attempted stabbing of IDF soldiers in Samaria. The IDF is investigating the circumstances surrounding the confrontation.
The incident occurred near the Palestinian village of Salfit, south of Ariel. The terrorist approached IDF soldiers wielding a knife and was shot. He was then taken in serious condition to an Israeli hospital for medical treatment.
No Israelis were wounded in the incident.
This incident comes amid renewed tensions since President Donald Trump’s official recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital last week.

The Republican loss in Alabama is a major embarrassment for Trump and a fresh wound for the nation’s already-divided GOP.
By: AP
In a stunning victory aided by scandal, Democrat Doug Jones won Alabama’s special Senate election on Tuesday, beating back history, an embattled Republican opponent and President Donald Trump, who urgently endorsed GOP rebel Roy Moore despite a litany of sexual misconduct allegations.
It was the first Democratic Senate victory in a quarter-century in Alabama, one of the reddest of red states, and proved anew that party loyalty is anything but sure in the age of Trump. The Republican loss was a major embarrassment for the president and a fresh wound for the nation’s already divided GOP.
“We have shown not just around the state of Alabama, but we have shown the country the way — that we can be unified,” Jones declared as supporters in a Birmingham ballroom cheered, danced and cried tears of joy. Still in shock, the Democrat struggled for words: “I think that I have been waiting all my life, and now I just don’t know what the hell to say.”
Moore, meanwhile, refused to concede and raised the possibility of a recount during a brief appearance at a somber campaign party in Montgomery.

Hundreds of thousands mourn ‘beacon of morality’ Rabbi Shteinman

Hundreds of thousands mourn ‘beacon of morality’ Rabbi ShteinmanMourners at Rabbi Aharon Yehudah Leib Shteinman's funeral in Bnei Brak. (Yonatan Sindel/Flash90)
A massive gathering attended the funeral Tuesday of Rabbi Aharon Yehudah Leib Shteinman, the head of the Ponevezh Yeshiva in Bnei Brak and the leader of the Degel HaTorah political party’s Council of Torah Sages, who died the same morning at the age of 104.
By: Jack Ben-David, World Israel News
While masses packed into the cemetery in the ultra-Orthodox city of Bnei Brak to pay their final respects to Rabbi Aharon Yehudah Leib Shteinman, the Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu offered his own moving tribute via video.
“Rabbi Shteinman was a beacon of spirituality and morality,” Prime Minister Netanyahu said in his address. “Everyone who knew him saw the great light that radiated from him: the light of the people of Israel, of the wisdom of Israel, and of the heritage of Israel.”
Rabbi Shteinman, the leader of the non-Hasidic Lithuanian ultra-Orthodox community and known for more moderate rulings, had been battling medical tribulations for months, repeatedly being admitted to hospital over the past year.
“His death leaves me with a deep feeling of loss. May his memory be blessed,” President Reuven Rivlin commented, referring to Shteinman as a “Torah giant.”
Shteinman had requested in his will that no eulogies be read out at his funeral procession itself, and his stated preference that “ten people would be enough at [his] funeral” was significantly exceeded.
In mid-November, Shteinman was rushed to hospital in serious condition and was once again able to recover and be transferred from the ICU unit.
Convalescing in a regular ward, he was once again taken to the ICU ward and again defied the odds as his condition was stabilized. On Tuesday, however, after repeatedly prevailing over his medical woes, Shteinman suffered a fatal heart attack.

By: Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
Rather than repeat his support for a two-state solution, Prime Minister Netanyahu chose to tell European leaders that a “Palestinian state” may not be viable. Asked directly whether he still supports a two-state solution, Netanyahu responded by asking the 28 EU foreign minister whether such a state would be like “Costa Rica or Yemen?” The message was not lost on his hosts. The former is a stable democracy in Central America, while the latter is in a state of war-blighted anarchy.
Netanyahu told reporters on his plane home that European nations “spoil” the Palestinians while US President Donald Trump, by recognizing Jerusalem as Israelis capital was, “telling them the truth.”
Netanyahu said he spoke with the foreign ministers of “almost all of the 28 EU member states” and that the conversation was “respectful from both sides.”

By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
A white House official slammed the Palestinian leadership for its boycotting of Vice President Mike Pence’s upcoming visit to Israel later this month.
The Palestinians announced that they will refuse to meet Pence in Ramallah, following President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
Responding to the threats, Pence’s director of communications Jarrod Agen said on Sunday that “it’s unfortunate that the Palestinian Authority is walking away again from an opportunity to discuss the future of the region.”
Despite the Palestinians’ conduct, he stated that the Trump administration “remains undeterred in its efforts to help achieve peace between Israelis and Palestinians and our peace team remains hard at work putting together a plan.”
“The President has asked Vice President Pence to go to the region to reaffirm our commitment to work with partners throughout the Middle East to defeat radicalism that threatens the hopes and dreams of future generations,” Agen noted.
“The Vice President very much looks forward to traveling to the region to meet with Prime Minister Netanyahu and [Egyptian] President el-Sisi,” the official stated.
Jibril Rajoub, a senior Palestinian official, said Thursday that PA head Mahmoud Abbas would not meet Pence.
“In the name of Fatah, I say that we will not welcome [US President Donald] Trump’s deputy in the Palestinian territories,” he stated.

The IDF pounded Hamas targets inside Gaza on Monday night in response to several rockets fired by Palestinian terrorists at Israel earlier.

The terrorists fired one rocket towards the city of Ashkelon, triggering the siren system in the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council. The Iron Dome Aerial Defense System intercepted a rocket above the city.

No injuries or damage were reported.

In response to the rocket attack, an IDF tank and the Israel Air Force (IAF) targeted Hamas terror posts in the northern Gaza Strip.

Earlier in the evening, rockets were launched from the Gaza Strip towards southern Israel. Hits inside Israeli territory have not been identified.

In response to this attack, an IDF tank and the IAF targeted Hamas terror posts in the southern Gaza Strip.

“The IDF holds the Hamas terror organization accountable for this hostile act originating in the Gaza Strip,” an IDF spokesman stated.

Recent days have seen a spike in rockets attacks from Gaza, following President Donald Trump’s announcement that the US recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Several rockets were fired at Israel from Gaza over the weekend, including one that hit near a home in the city of Sderot and another one that damaged a kindergarten. A third rocket was intercepted by an Iron Dome system.

Israel marks 100th anniversary of Allenby’s liberation of Jerusalem

Relatives of the British commanders were at David’s Citadel on Monday to commemorate December 11, 1917, the date when General Allenby arrived at Jaffa Gate and declared that Jerusalem had been liberated after 400 years of Ottoman rule.
By Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
Throughout the history of Jerusalem there have been great historic moments. One of the most dramatic and legendary events was General Edmund Allenby leading his forces to liberate the ancient biblical city from the Ottoman Empire during World War I. On the afternoon of December 11, 1917, Allenby entered the Old City by foot, walking from Jaffa Gate to the Tower of David Citadel. There he claimed the keys to the city for the British Empire.
Jews celebrated the British arrival, calling it a “Chanukah Miracle,” while Christians termed the event “A Christmas Present.” Some 400 years of Ottoman Muslim rule had come to an end and the brief 40-year period of the British Mandate in Palestine had begun.
To mark the moment, the Tower of David Museum on Monday staged a reenactment of Allenby’s walk. Relatives of the commanding British generals Allenby and Major General John Shea attended the event. On the steps of the Tower of David, Mayor Nir Barkat welcomed Viscount Allenby of Megiddo and Felixstowe; Sara Viscountess Allenby; and the great-grandson of General Shea, Mr. John Benson.
Speaking from the same steps where Allenby had stood, outside David’s Citadel, Barkat told an international audience of approximately 1,000: “Allenby was a great military man as well as a distinguished thinker who understood the city of Jerusalem and its role in the world and that the city has unique properties as a uniting force for the entire world open and open to all peoples.”
In his proclamation, read to the city’s residents, General Allenby recognized the importance and uniqueness of Jerusalem and called upon the city’s residents to continue living their lives as usual and to enjoy freedom of worship, religion, and tradition under the patronage of the new government.
Representatives of different communities in the Old City were on hand on Monday to hear the same proclamation General Allenby had made when declaring the liberation of the city. The words were read aloud in English, French, Hebrew, Arabic, Russian, Greek and Italian. This was the first time in modern history that the Hebrew language received international recognition.
The English version reads: “Lest any of you should be alarmed by reason of your experiences at the hands of the enemy who has retired, I hereby inform you that it is my desire that every person should pursue his lawful business without fear of interruption… Therefore do I make known to you that every sacred building, monument, holy spot, shrine, traditional site, endowment, pious bequest of customary place of prayer, of whatsoever form of the three religions, will be maintained and protected according to the existing customs and beliefs of those to whose faiths they are sacred.”
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was out of the country, but his message was read out to the audience: “Today we recognize the commander who led the British army to the Land of Israel and to the gates of Jerusalem. We honor the fallen among the English, Australian and New Zealand soldiers as well as the Jewish soldiers who fought in the Jewish Brigade. They were part of an historic mission. We remember them and will appreciate their contribution forever.”
Jews constituted a majority in Jerusalem
Author Lenny Ben-David is currently writing a book on the period, titled World War I in the Holy Land Revealed in Early Photographs. The book contains chapters on General Allenby and the battles for Beersheba, Jerusalem and Damascus. It also includes stories about American ships that saved Jews, and spies in the Holy Land including prominent Zionists. Ben-David told World Israel News (WIN), “This year marks the centenary of a fierce World War I battle that not only saved Jerusalem from physical destruction, but rescued its entire Jewish population from squalor, starvation, plague, exile and death. In the scope of Jewish history, the liberation of Jerusalem in December 1917 ranks with the salvation holidays of Chanukah and Purim.”

Several hundred Arabs with Israeli citizenship rioted at various locations in northern Israel on Saturday in response to President Donald Trump’s historic recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
The masked rioters blocked a main route and threw rocks at passing cars and buses. Three Israelis were wounded and several vehicles were damaged.
A mob violently assaulted an Israeli news photographer. While he was able to escape unharmed, his motorcycle was destroyed.
The wild protests were part of the larger Palestinian “day of rage” following Trump’s announcement that he recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and planned to move the US Embassy there.
In response, Minister of Defense Avigdor Liberman said the Arabs of Wadi Ara, where the riots occurred, are “not part of us” and called for a boycott on the area.

By recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, Trump has given a Chanukah gift to Israel as well as a Christmas present to himself by restoring the foreign policy power balance in Washington.
By: Daniel Krygier, Political Analyst, World Israel News
While US Presidents come and go, US Middle Eastern policies have been remarkably consistent for decades. The US State Department, not known to be a friend of Israel, has been calling the shots concerning much of those policies. By recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, President Donald Trump has given not only a Chanukah gift to Israel, but also a Christmas present to himself by restoring the foreign policy power balance in Washington.
According to US law, the Trump Administration was supposed to close the Palestine Liberation Organization’s Washington office because the PLO continues to incite against Israel and support terrorism. However, the US State Department undermined the president by deciding to reward PLO’s aggression against Israel and keep its office in Washington open.
Under President Barack Obama, the White House and the State Department both followed the same misguided policy that identifies the Arab-Israeli conflict as the root to all Middle Eastern violence and conflicts. The pro-Arab State Department traditionally sees Israel as the main culprit in the Middle East and its policies are based on this Orwellian viewpoint. The State Department has for years refused to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and systematically undermined any efforts to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met Monday with 28 EU foreign ministers in a breakfast get-together in Brussels, Belgium. This is the first time in over two decades that a sitting prime minister has been asked to address such a gathering – made possible by the invitation issued by Lithuania, which holds the current presidency of the EU.
Netanyahu was welcomed by EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, and they spoke about the major points that each would be making later in the morning.
The Israeli prime minister hit on themes that have become familiar in the wake of President Donald Trump’s announcement recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
He stressed that Israel is one of Europe’s protectors in the “common battle” they share against terrorism, insisting, “Israel is the strongest power in the Middle East that is preventing the spread of militant Islam, not only preventing ISIS attacks in Europe, but also preventing the collapse of many parts of the Middle East adjacent to Israel that would otherwise be taken over by these militant Islamists, driving many, many, many millions into Europe.”

A bill safeguarding the Sabbath as a day of rest in Israel received lawmakers’ initial approval.
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
The Knesset plenum on Tuesday voted on an amendment to the Hours of Work and Rest Law stipulating that before issuing permits to work on Shabbat, the Minister of Labor, Social Affairs and Social Services would be required to take into account Israeli and Jewish tradition.
MK Moshe Gafni of the United Torah Judaism party introduced the amendment. In the first reading, 50 lawmakers voted in favor of the legislation; 34 were opposed.
Under the proposal, the Minister of Labor would be empowered to define what work is permitted to take place on the Sabbath, the Jewish day of rest, based on a number of criteria, including the workers’ needs, the traditions of Israel, alternative solutions that would not require employing workers on Shabbat, as well as the level of harm caused to the public when considering granting permits for Sabbath work.
The bill’s explanatory paragraphs state that the prohibition on employing workers on Shabbat has two purposes: The first is the goal aspect of enabling workers to relax, and the second is the national and religious imperative of establishing the Sabbath as a day of rest in accordance with the State of Israel’s character as a Jewish state.
Coalition members belonging to religious parties introduced the bill, saying that the sanctity of the Sabbath day was under attack, pointing to increased construction over the weekend and several recent rulings by the High Court of Justice, which they say have eroded the Sabbath’s unique status.
“This is not Israel’s tradition, but religious coercion,” according to Yesh Atid Chairman Yair Lapid.

Lebanese security forces repelled rioters who attempted to storm the US embassy in Beirut.
By: AP and World Israel News
A mob of Lebanese and Palestinian demonstrators violently clashed on Sunday with security forces outside the US Embassy in Beirut over President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
The protesters gathered hundreds of meters (yards) away from the heavily-guarded embassy, where they burned an effigy of Trump, US and Israeli flags, as well as piles of garbage, sending plumes of smoke into the air.
As they hurled stones, security forces responded with tear gas and water cannons.
Lebanese security forces finally broke up the protest.
However, clashes resumed in the afternoon, with security forces chasing protesters, arresting a handful of them and lobbing tear gas canisters.
Al Jazeera’s Zeina Khodr, reporting for the scene, said “there is a lot of anger here. What they’re chanting is ‘Palestine forgive us, they closed the door on us’, clearly in reference to Arab leaders,” meaning that “protesters here feel Arab leaders have just been talking, but not taking any action. What people here are calling for is a new intifada and on the Palestinian Authority to end the peace process.”
The police cordoned off the embassy with high fences, and protesters did not make it anywhere near the embassy.
Lebanon is home to hundreds of thousands of so-called Palestinian refugees, nearly 10 percent of the population.

By: World Israel News Staff
An interfaith group from Bahrain visiting Israel and the Palestinian territories was welcomed with violence by a Palestinian mob as it attempted to visit the Gaza Strip on Monday.
Dozens of Palestinian activists gathered in front of the Beit Hanoun crossing in the northern Gaza Strip to prevent the Bahraini delegation from entering the Strip, the Palestinian Ma’an news agency reported.
The mob torched tires and chanted slogans condemning normalization with Israel.
One activist told Ma’an that they would not allow the delegation to enter and that they would treat them as enemies, while another said he had brought rotten eggs to throw at members of the delegation.
While organizers repeatedly described the trip as nonpolitical, the timing comes as Bahrain increasingly looks like the test case for other Gulf Arab nations in seeing what could happen if they recognize Israel.
A group of 30 people from Bahrain, including Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, Jews and Muslims, flew to Israel for the event. They are visiting universities and talking to officials there about topics of common interest.

ISIS attack on NY subway was retaliation ‘for US military aggression’

A would-be suicide bomber inspired by the Islamic State (ISIS) terror group strapped on a crude pipe bomb, slipped unnoticed into the US’ busiest subway system and set the device off at rush hour Monday in a scenario that New York has dreaded for years, authorities said.

In the end, the only serious wounds were to the suspect identified as Akayed Ullah, a 27-year-old Bangladeshi immigrant and former cab driver. But the attack sent terrified commuters fleeing through a smoky passageway, and three people suffered headaches and ringing ears from the first bomb blast in the subway in more than two decades.
“This was an attempted terrorist attack,” Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio said. “Thank God the perpetrator did not achieve his ultimate goals.”
The suspect had looked at ISIS propaganda online and told investigators he acted alone in retaliation for US military aggression, law enforcement officials said.
In Washington, President Donald Trump said the explosion highlighted the need to change immigration policies, including the type of family-based visa Ullah obtained to come to the US in 2011. Such visas are “incompatible with national security,” the president said in a statement.
“America must fix its lax immigration system, which allows far too many dangerous, inadequately vetted people to access our country,” said Trump, who campaigned on cracking down on immigration.
Inspired by ISIS
The attack near Times Square came less than two months after eight people were murdered near the World Trade Center in a truck attack authorities said was carried out by an Uzbek immigrant who admired ISIS.
Law enforcement officials said Ullah was inspired by ISIS but apparently did not have any direct contact with the group
Gov. Andrew Cuomo said there was no evidence, so far, of other bombs or a larger plot. He said officials were exploring whether Ullah had been on authorities’ radar, but there was no indication yet that he was.
Cuomo said there was reason to believe the terrorist looked at bomb-making instructions online.

Is employing a Jewish lawyer proof that you are not a bigot?
By: AP
The wife of Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore defended her husband against accusations of bigotry by pointing out that one of their attorneys “is a Jew.”
Kayla Moore made the comment at a rally for her husband in rural Alabama Monday night. She said the “fake news” has flsely accused her husband of being against women in office as well as black and Jewish people.
“Well, one of our attorneys is a Jew. We have very close friends who are Jewish and rabbis,” she pointed out.
Kayla Moore said she wanted to clear the record for the large media presence at her husband’s final rally before Tuesday’s vote.
Speaking at a Monday night rally, the candidate urged his supporters to get to the polls Tuesday and called the article that first raised allegations against him “disgusting.”
Moore, 70, faces allegations of sexual misconduct involving teenage girls decades ago.
“If you don’t believe in my character, don’t vote for me,” he stated.
Moore, who was twice removed as state Chief Justice for thwarting court orders regarding the Ten Commandments and same-sex marriage, argued that the nation must “go back to God.”
“I want America great and I want America good, and we can’t be good until we go back to God,” Moore said.
