A pipe bomb that was strapped to a man exploded in a New York City subway station near the Times Square area of Manhattan on Monday, injuring the suspect and another person on the platform at the height of the morning rush hour, law enforcement officials said.
The terrorist and the victim were both being treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
The explosion, which happened around 7:30 a.m., triggered a massive emergency response by New York police and firefighters both above and below ground, tangling subway and bus service at the nearby Port Authority bus terminal.

The French and Israeli leaders sparred verbally over the US decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
By: AP and World Israel News Staff
The French and Israeli leaders wrangled Sunday over President Donald Trump’s official recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, while new violence rippled across the region following the move.
In Jerusalem, a Palestinian stabbed an Israeli security guard, seriously wounding him in the first attack in the volatile city since Trump’s pronouncement Wednesday. In Beirut, scores of Lebanese and Palestinian demonstrators clashed with security forces outside the heavily guarded US Embassy, and Arab foreign ministers meeting in Cairo demanded that the United States rescind the decision.

By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
The IDF demolished a Hamas-built terror tunnel on the Gaza border, the second such incident in weeks.
An IDF spokesperson announced that the tunnel ran from Khan Younis several hundred feet into Israel’s Eshkol region. The tunnel could have been used to abduct soldiers or carry out a devastating terror attack within an Israel community.
The discovery was made several weeks ago with the help of advanced technology, the IDF statement said. The tunnel has since been under IDF monitoring until its destruction on Sunday.
The tunnel was “a blatant breach of Israel’s sovereignty, an unacceptable situation which prompted the IDF’s actions,” the military said, and its exposure was “an operational success based on advanced technology, a testimony to the IDF’s upgraded abilities.”
The operation to detect and demolish terror tunnels is an ongoing process, the IDF continued, pointing out that its capabilities to carry out this mission are constantly improving.
“The Hamas terror organization is the address and is responsible for anything that occurs in the Gaza Strip,” the military stressed. The IDF “is prepared for all developments.”

By: JNS.org
The Palestinians are pushing the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to demand that the US reverse its recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
At an emergency session of the UNSC on Friday convened by eight of the council’s 15 members, 14 member states condemned the US move.
“We are satisfied that there are 14 countries in the Security Council that are defending international law, defending Security Council resolutions as they relate to Jerusalem and rejecting the unilateral, illegal decisions by President [Donald] Trump two days ago,” said Palestinian Ambassador to the UN Riyad Mansour.
Due to the US being one of five permanent members of the UNSC, the passage of a resolution on the matter is unlikely.

Netanyahu is headed to meet with European leaders, where he will likely face hostility over Trump’s historic Jerusalem declaration.
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu arrived in Paris Sunday morning for a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron. From there he will leave for Brussels to visit the European Union (EU) headquarters – the first Israeli premier to do so in 22 years.
Before taking off Saturday night, Netanyahu said that while he ascribes “great importance to Europe” and respects it, he is “not prepared to accept a double standard from it.”
“I hear voices from there condemning President Trump’s historic statement, but I have not heard condemnations of the rockets fired at Israel or the terrible incitement against it,” he continued.
Netanyahu was referring to Trump’s historic recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the European reaction that mostly condemned the declaration, and the ensuing Palestinian violence and terrorism following the president’s declaration, which included rocket fire from Gaza on the Israeli city of Sderot over the weekend.

As part of the wave of rioting and protests in Israel following President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the Israei capital, hundreds of Palestinians threw rocks and Molotov cocktails and rolled burning tires at IDF troops throughout Judea and Samaria on Saturday.
The IDF issued a statement describing an attempt by one group of rioters in Ramallah to use an Arab ambulance as cover while throwing rocks at soldiers, Times of Israel reported.
“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 army said.
The usual methods used by security forces in such situations are to use tear gas, stun grenades and rubber bullets.

Traveling to meet European leaders, PM Netanyahu lashes out at the continent’s “hypocrisy and double standard” toward Israel.
By: Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu set off for a two-day trip to Paris and Brussels where he is certain to hear sharp criticism of President Trump’s initiative recognizing Jerusalem as the Israeli capital. Before take-off, the Israeli leader blasted European “hypocrisy” and “double standards” toward Israel and its capital.
Netanyahu said that he is not willing to tolerate some countries’ race to slam President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital last week. Netanyahu told reporters, “While I respect Europe, I am not prepared to accept a double standard from it. I hear voices condemning President Trump’s historic statement but I have not heard condemnations of the rockets fired at Israel or the terrible incitement against us.” Netanyahu said that he plans to “present Israel’s truth without fear and with head held high,” when he meets European Union leaders on Monday.
Ahead of Netanyahu’s arrival today in Paris, hundreds of pro-Palestinian activists staged an anti-Israel protest on Saturday opposing the Prime Minister’s visit. Protestors carried photos of French President Emmanuel Macron marked “accomplice” for hosting Netanyahu so soon after US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Macron has actually spearheaded international opposition to Trump’s initiative along with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan. The French leader has gone so far as to say that because of Trump’s action, the United States has sidelined itself as a Middle East peacemaker and he called the move “against international law.” Macron and Erdogan say they will work together to try to persuade the United States to reconsider the decision, a Turkish presidential source said on Saturday.

By: AP
World leaders congratulated Iraq Sunday following the prime minister’s declaration of victory over the Islamic State (ISIS) terror group. Saudi Arabia says the achievement is a big victory against terrorism in the region and the United Kingdom applauded Iraq’s security forces “for their courage and sacrifice.”
Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi declared victory in the more than three year fight against ISIS in a national address aired on Iraqi state television Saturday evening.
Sunday was an official holiday in Iraq. A military parade attended by al-Abadi was held inside Baghdad’s fortified Green Zone — a district that houses most of Iraq’s government buildings and foreign embassies. In the evening, the capital’s skies filled with fireworks.
“Daesh (ISIS) no longer hold significant territory in Iraq or Syria,” United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May said according to an official statement released by her office. “This signals a new chapter towards a more peaceful, prosperous country.”

A pipe bomb that was strapped to a man exploded in a New York City subway station near the Times Square area of Manhattan on Monday, injuring the suspect and another person on the platform at the height of the morning rush hour, law enforcement officials said.

The terrorist and the victim were both being treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

The explosion, which happened around 7:30 a.m., triggered a massive emergency response by New York police and firefighters both above and below ground, tangling subway and bus service at the nearby Port Authority bus terminal.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted that President Trump has been briefed on the explosion.

One person was in custody after the explosion. The suspected bomber was a 27-year-old man from Brooklyn, law enforcement sources told Fox News.

A video from above the “Crossroads of the World” shows lines of police and emergency vehicles with lights flashing and no traffic moving.

Everything around the Port Authority in the 42nd Street area was shut down — a surreal scene of still at what would ordinarily be a bustling rush hour.

Former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton told MSNBC his sources in the department said the explosion was an “ISIS-inspired attack.” Bratton said the suspect was from Bangladesh.

The last Islamic terror attack in the city was also committed by a Bangladeshi Islamist. Eight victims were murdered in that attack and 11 others were injured.

While Palestinian leaders clamored for “days of rage” and a new “intifada” in the immediate aftermath of President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, there have been disturbances, but no sign of an uprising.

By: Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News

In response to US President Donald Trump’s speech on Wednesday recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the “days of rage” promised by the Palestinians have yet to materialize. There have been three days of relatively mild protests, with only a few hundred eastern Jerusalem Arabs participating. In contrast, last July tens of thousands of Palestinians came out night after night in violent protest, after Israel placed metal detectors at the entranced to the Al-Aqsa mosque after the shooting deaths of two policemen by three Arab Israelis who had smuggled weapons into the site.

The Damascus Gate is often the focal point of protest and violence, but in the days after the Trump speech journalist’s outnumbered protesters. Overall, life in the Israeli capital has gone on normally.

Palestinian leadership called for a general strike across Judea and Samaria and Jerusalem but many stores stayed open on the main thoroughfares. Without Arab Jerusalemites taking part in protests in large numbers, experts say the protests cannot sustain themselves.

IDF blasts Hamas in Gaza following rocket attacks against Israel

The IDF blasted back at Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip Thursday evening, following Palestinian rocket fire at Israel.
By: TPS
“The IDF struck two terror targets in Gaza in response to rocket fire from the northern Gaza Strip that landed in Israeli territory and to an earlier launch that landed within the Gaza Strip,” an IDF spokesman said. “The IDF sees the terror organization Hamas as responsible for events in the Gaza Strip.”
The IDF said the strikes on Gaza had been carried out with tank fire and from an aerial vehicle.
At around 6:30 pm sirens sounded in the Shaar Hanegev Regional Council in the northwestern Negev. Security sources said no rockets fell in Israeli territory. An IDF spokesman said two rocket launches had been identified with both falling inside the Gaza Strip.
Later in the evening another launch was reported with rockets said to have fallen in open fields in Israeli territory.
Palestinians and security forces clashed earlier in the day along the Gaza border with reports of three Palestinians injured. Clashes were also reported throughout Judea and Samaria as Palestinians rioted following United States President Donald Trump’s declaration Wednesday night that the US recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
A ‘Day of Rage’ has been declared for Friday.

Many countries reacted with condemnation and dismissal of Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
By: World Israel News Staff
Leaders from around the world condemned the US and President Donald Trump for his historic recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, calling for Jerusalem’s status to be resolved by negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.
Eight of the 15-member United Nations Security Council (UNSC) called for an urgent meeting to discuss Trump’s decision, according to media reports.
Britain and France, two permanent UNSC members, along with Sweden, Italy, Egypt, Uruguay, Bolivia and Senegal have called for the urgent meeting, which is expected to be held on Friday.
UN Secretary-General António Guterres stated that “Jerusalem is a final status issue that must be resolved through direct negotiations between the two parties on the basis of the relevant Security Council and General Assembly resolutions.”
“For my part as the United Nations Secretary-General, I will do everything in my power to support the Israeli and Palestinian leaders to return to meaningful negotiations and to realize this vision of a lasting peace for both people,” he stated
“In this moment of great anxiety, I want to make it clear: there is no alternative to the two-state solution. There is no Plan B,” said the UN Secretary-General.
British Prime Minister Theresa May stated Wednesday that she views Trump’s move as “unhelpful” for peace in the region.
“We disagree with the US decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem and recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital before a final status agreement. We believe it is unhelpful in terms of prospects for peace in the region. The British Embassy to Israel is based in Tel Aviv and we have no plans to move it,” May said in a statement.
The UK’s “position on the status of Jerusalem is clear and long-standing: 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,” she stated.

Israel has launched a campaign to encourage nations to follow the US lead by recognizing Jerusalem as capital of the Jewish state and moving their embassies there.

By: Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News

While many nations condemned US President Donald Trump’s announcement recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, others are already following America’s lead and exploring the idea of beginning the process of moving their embassies.

Within hours of Trump’s landmark address, the Czech Republic and the Philippines were reportedly in contact with Israel’s foreign ministry to discuss the issue.

According to Israel Radio, the Czech Republic said Wednesday night that it “recognizes Jerusalem to be in fact the capital of Israel in the borders of the demarcation line from 1967.” The Czech Republic, together with other EU member states, following the EU Foreign Affairs Council conclusions, considers Jerusalem to be the future capital of both states, meaning the State of Israel and a future “State of Palestine.” Israel Radio also reported that Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte sent an official message to Jerusalem declaring that he wants to move his nation’s embassy.

Speaking off the record, a leading Israeli expert in international affairs told World Israel News (WIN), “I do not expect an avalanche of countries rushing to Jerusalem. But there are some nations, like the Czech Republic and the Philippines, that want to find favor either with Israel or the United States, each for its own reason. The Czechs are kind of mavericks and feel close to Israel. The Philippines president is considered something of an international outlaw at present, widely criticized for mass extrajudicial killings, but he recently had a positive meeting with Trump and plans to visit Israel in May.”

Netanyahu optimistic about the future
The unnamed expert cited Macedonia, Hungary and Lithuania as very pro-Israel nations that may soon have an inkling to move their nations’ embassies.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is reportedly hopeful that several mostly Christian countries in Africa could be swayed to move their embassies. A warming in ties with the continent has been reported following the Prime Minister’s recent visit to Kenya.

Netanyahu announced that Israel is already in contact with other friendly nations in an effort to get them to follow Trump’s lead. Speaking at the Foreign Ministry on Thursday, he said, “I would like to announce that we are already in contact with other countries which will issue a similar recognition.” Furthermore, “I have no doubt that the moment the American Embassy moves to Jerusalem, and even before then, there will be a movement of many embassies to Jerusalem. The time has come.” Netanyahu declined to name any of the countries with which the Foreign Ministry has been in touch.

Netanyahu, commenting on Trump’s speech, did not hold back on the hyperbole, saying, “President Trump has immortalized himself in the chronicles of our capital. His name will now be held aloft, alongside other names connected to the glorious history of Jerusalem and of our people.”

Most world leaders opposed to Trump’s message
Most world leaders speaking out on the issue were very much opposed to Trump’s message. France, Britain, Germany, Italy and Sweden were but a few of the leading nations issuing statements making it clear that they have no plans to move their embassies to Jerusalem. Most added comments advocating calm and a commitment to a negotiated settlement and a two-state solution.

Alan Baker, an International Law expert at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, told WIN, “Once the dust settles there will be movement toward Jerusalem. Currently there is a huge panic because of the dire comments by the French, British, Turks, Jordanians and Palestinians. When things settle down, I think the Australians will come along and I would hope that other friendly states will do so as well.”

Baker, a former Israeli ambassador to Canada, added, “I would expect Canada to move and it’s appropriate, but the present Canadian government has taken a step back from the former, more supportive government.”

Curiously silent on the issue in recent days is Russia. Last April, in a surprise move, Moscow announced that it considers western Jerusalem to be Israel’s capital. The Kremlin had issued a statement, reading, “We reaffirm our commitment to the UN-approved principles for a Palestinian-Israeli settlement, which include the status of East Jerusalem as the capital of the future Palestinian state. At the same time, we must state that in this context we view West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.”

Israel’s position: Jerusalem is the united capital
In May, Israelis and Jews around the world celebrated 50 years since the reunification of Jerusalem during the Six Day War. The official position of the Israeli government is that Jerusalem must remain the undivided capital of the Jewish state. Ahead of Trump’s speech, the leading opposition parties supported that position. Speaking Wednesday at the Jerusalem Post‘s Diplomatic Conference, Yesh Atid party leader Yair Lapid expressed hope that the president would recognize a “united Jerusalem.” Avi Gabby, head of the Zionist Union alliance, told Israel Radio, “Jerusalem will remain undivided under Israeli sovereignty in any future peace agreement.”

President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital “should not weigh in on the peace process,” said US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley. She elaborates on American policy on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as well as discussing the threat from North Korea.

By misrepresenting a poster-burning “ceremony” as a reflection of widespread Palestinian rage concerning Trump’s policy on Jerusalem, the international media is once again complicit in promoting PA propaganda.
By: Bassam Tawil, The Gatestone Institute
A short three hours after US President Donald Trump phoned Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas to inform him of his intention to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a number of Palestinian photojournalists received a phone call from Bethlehem.
The callers were Palestinian “activists,” who invited the photographers to come to the city to document an “important event.” When the photographers arrived, they discovered that the “important event” was a handful of Palestinian “activists” who wanted to burn posters of Trump in front of the cameras.
The “activists” waited patiently as the photojournalists and cameramen set up their equipment to get the “important event” on film. Shortly thereafter, the media was abuzz with reports about “angry Palestinian protesters taking to the streets to protest” Trump’s intention to move the embassy to Jerusalem and his recognition of the city as the capital of Israel. The handful of Palestinians who were filmed burning the Trump pictures were made to look as if they were part of a mass protest sweeping Palestinian communities.
The incident represents yet another example of the collusion between the Palestinians and the media, whose representatives are always more than happy to serve as mouthpieces for the Palestinian propaganda machine and provide an open platform for broadcasting Palestinian threats against Israel and the US.

During a meeting held in Amman, the Palestinian Authority president and Jordan’s king resolved to try to prevent other countries from following the US’ lead in recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

By: Jack Ben-David

Jordan’s King Abdullah II met with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas Thursday to discuss a coordinated response to US President Donald Trump’s speech the previous day in which he declared Jerusalem Israel’s capital.

Trump’s declaration, during which he also announced that he had instructed the US State Department to begin laying the groundwork for fulfilling an election campaign pledge to transfer the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, sparked outrage throughout the Arab world and ushered in a wave of condemnation from international leaders.

The meeting between Abbas and Abdullah was part of a series of talks intended “to discuss the changes happening on the ground concerning the holy city,” according to the WAFA Palestinian news agency.

Held behind closed doors, the meeting was also attended by Crown Prince Hussein Bin Abdullah and a Palestinian delegation including Chief negotiator Saeb Erekat, member of the central committee Hussein al-Sheikh, intelligence chief Majed Faraj and Palestinian Ambassador to Jordan Attallah Khairi.

Abbas and Abdullah said during the meeting in Amman that Trump’s declaration––hailed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as bearing equal historic significance as the Balfour Declaration, the founding of Israel and the liberation of eastern Jerusalem in 1967––was a violation of international law, with the king urging a continued momentum of international outcry in a bid to prevent any other countries from following President Trump’s lead on the status of Jerusalem.

‘Dangerous repercussions’
The two also reportedly discussed undertaking further efforts to inform the international community on what the Arab world has repeatedly described as the “dangerous repercussions” of Trump’s move.

Despite the US president’s declaration, the Jordanian king held fast to the notion that a future Palestinian state would include the eastern portion of Jerusalem as its capital.

“The issue of Jerusalem should be settled within a comprehensive solution that leads to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with east Jerusalem as its capital living in peace and security alongside Israel,” Abdullah said.

According to reports, the king said that efforts had to be increased to safeguard the rights of Palestinians, Arabs and Muslims living in the Israeli capital.

By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
In advance of US President Donald Trump’s speech on Wednesday regarding the status of Jerusalem, Pope Francis said he was “profoundly concerned” about the decision to move the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
At the end of his weekly general audience, attended by thousands of people, the Pope called for the status quo on Jerusalem to be preserved, saying that he was very worried because the American decision could “[add] new elements of tension to a global panorama” that is already marred “by so many and cruel conflicts.”
The US president had called many of the country’s allies to inform them of his decision ahead of the announcement.

By: World Israel News Staff
The US has asked Israel to tone down its celebrations in response to the US recognition of Jerusalem as its capital in case of a violent Muslim reaction against American facilities and diplomats, Reuters reported on Wednesday.
The report is based on a State Department document asking Israel to “restrain” its “official response.”
“We expect there to be resistance to this news in the Middle East and around the world. We are still judging the impact this decision will have on US facilities and personnel overseas,” the document said.
The Palestinians, as well as Muslims around the world, have threatened a violent backlash to Trump’s statement.
Israeli officials responded to President Donald Trump’s historic announcement with warm statements, but other than Jerusalem’s Old City walls being lit with the US and Israeli flags, no special events were held.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Defense Secretary James Mattis and CIA Director Mike Pompeo all argued against US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital or the moving of the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in the absence of a peace deal, CNN reported Wednesday.
According to the report, when President Donald Trump made clear his determination to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, they argued for him to sign a waiver delaying the embassy move by another six months, which he did. However, Trump did announce the US has commenced with preparations to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Trump’s Mideast peace envoys, Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt and White House senior policy adviser Jared Kushner, reportedly supported the move, but advised him to delay relocating the embassy .

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.
Trump upset the Western liberal establishment by recognizing reality: “Israel has made its capital in the city of Jerusalem, the capital the Jewish people established in ancient times.”
This simple, straightforward statement reverses former President Barack Obama’s badly informed position of viewing the Jewish state as a compensating refugee camp for Holocaust survivors. Trump may not be a historian, but he recognized what should have been recognized long ago: the Jewish people is the indigenous nation of Israel and Jerusalem is the ancient capital of the Jewish people.
The American leader correctly reminded his audience that modern Israel is a sovereign nation that was recognized almost 70 years ago by US President Harry Truman. Like any independent nation, Israel chooses the location for its own capital. Imagine if the world attacked Britain and France for choosing London and Paris as their capitals.

Philadelphia Holocaust memorial to be renovated for 1st time in half a century

Philadelphia Holocaust memorial to be renovated for 1st time in half a centuryGroundbreaking for Philadelphia Holocaust memorial (Youtube/Screenshot)
A new $7 million plaza to be constructed at the memorial site to honor the 6 million Jews murdered by the Nazis.
A Philadelphia-based Holocaust memorial saw the first stages of a new renovation project worth $7 million Tuesday when officials gathered to launch restoration work on the old structure.
Located on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, the memorial is set to be spruced up for the first time in half a century following the announcement of a huge endowment six months ago by the non-profit Philadelphia Holocaust Remembrance Foundation (PHRF).
Speaking at the ceremony, the city’s mayor, Jim Kenney, said that the more nationalistic flavor that has permeated political and public discourse necessitates the new memorial plaza, which he said should serve as a prominent reminder of the consequences of extremism.
“In light of the toxic national rhetoric, it’s more important than ever that we properly commemorate the victims of this tragedy and never forget this dark period of history,” Kenny said.
The renovation, which is designed to enhance education and awareness about the Holocaust, will see the construction of a brand new plaza, along with more monuments to complement the main Six Million Jewish Martyrs statue.
Emphasis on education
With an emphasis on the educational aspect, in addition to the honoring of the victims murdered during the Third Reich, PHRF chairman David Adelman said that the planned structure should be thought of as an “outdoor living classroom.”

Jerusalem awaits decision: Will Trump sign waiver after the deadline?

The anticipated deadline for President Trump to sign the waiver that prevents moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem has come and gone, but it may still be signed in conjunction with his expected declaration of US recognition of the Israeli capital.
By: Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
According to the American law, US President Donald Trump had to sign a waiver by December 1st if he intends to delay a move of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem for six more months. He failed to do so. Does that mean that that embassy staff must immediately start packing for the move? Moving trucks have yet to be spotted on HaYarkon Street in Tel Aviv, and the apparent answer is “no.”
A White House spokesman confirmed Monday that Trump ignored the deadline, but indicated that he may still sign the waiver in the coming days with minimal or no consequences expected. Since December 1st was a Friday, the deadline was initially extended to the next full work day after the weekend on Monday, December 4th. The current date is December 5th, and that is unchartered territory as far as the waiver is concerned. Trump is due to make a major policy speech that relates to Jerusalem on Wednesday, December 6th. Speculation is rising that the waiver signing may come just before or after that speech, if it happens at all.

By: World Israel News Staff
Nabil Abu Rudeinah, who serves as the official spokesman for Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas, announced Tuesday that US president Donald Trump had spoken with Abbas regarding “his intention” to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
“POTUS called to brief President Mahmoud Abbas on his intention to move the US embassy to Jerusalem,” tweeted the Palestine Liberation Organization’s negotiating office on Tuesday.
The tweet linked to a report published by WAFA, the official PA news site, which did not indicate whether Trump had provided a timeline for the embassy move.
This development comes shortly after Trump elected not to sign a waiver that would have permitted him to delay moving the embassy. The waiver process related to the embassy was instituted by a 1995 law that requires the US to relocate the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, but permits the president to postpone the move every six months based on national security concerns.
Every sitting president since the law was enacted continued to sign the waiver, until Trump permitted the deadline for signing to pass on Monday at midnight.

By: Steve Leibowitz, World Israel News
The defense establishment is closely watching for fallout on the Palestinian street if President Donald Trump announces a change in the US position and recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Police Superintendent Micky Rosenfeld told World Israel News that while there are no specific warnings, “Our finger is on the pulse, and we are closely watching for developments.”
The working assumption among security officials is that an American announcement recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital would be perceived as a change in the status quo that could inflame tensions. Rosenfeld said that “there is currently no increase in police deployment, but we are prepared for any eventuality and will monitor developments on the ground.”

By: World Israel News Staff
The US State Department has issued a warning to American embassies worldwide to enhance security ahead of a possible announcement Wednesday by President Donald Trump that the US recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, Politico reported Monday.
The warning reflects concern that such an announcement could provoke fury in the Arab world, including mass protests and terrorism.
The Organization for Islamic Cooperation issued a statement on Monday condemning an anticipated announcement by the president, saying its 57 member states should sever ties with any country that transfers its embassy to Jerusalem or recognizes Israel’s sovereignty over the city.
Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah party called for mass protests “to confront this aggression not only against the Palestinians, but against Muslims and Christians all over the world.”
The Hamas terror group on Saturday called to renew the “Jerusalem Intifada.”
“The impending Jerusalem announcement has me very worried about the possibility of violent responses that could affect embassies,” one State Department official told Politico. “I hope I’m wrong.”
Trump is expected to make an announcement on the issue during a speech at the National Defense University on Wednesday.

The Palestinian factions that issued the statement inciting these “days of rage” referred to President Trump’s policy as “political blackmail, which would destroy his ability to achieve regional or colonialist achievements in the region,” reported the Jerusalem Post.
The statement continued, “We call on all our people in Israel and around the world to gather in city centers and Israeli embassies and consulates, with the aim of bringing about general popular anger.”

Turkey’s president is threatening to cut off diplomatic ties with Israel if US President Donald Trump decides to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, saying the city is “a red line for Muslims.”
Jerusalem is inviolable for Muslims, and ignoring that would have serious consequences, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stated Tuesday, Turkey’s Anadolu news agency reported.
“Mr. Trump, Jerusalem is a red line for Muslims. We are imploring the US once again. You cannot take this kind of step,” he stated.
Responding to the threats, Minister of Transportation Yisrael Katz stated that Israel “does not receive orders or threats from Turkey.”
“Israel is a sovereign state and Jerusalem is its capital. There is no historic move that is more just or correct than to recognize now Jerusalem, the capital of the Jewish people for the past 3,000 years, as the capital of the state of Israel. The days of the Sultan and the Ottoman Empire have passed,” he stated.
Minister of Science Ofir Akunis stated that Israel’s ties to Jerusalem are stronger than those to Ankara.

After peddling blood libel, Russian priest denies anti-SemitismFather Tikhon Shevkunov (Wikicommons)

A Russian Orthodox Church panel is claiming that the execution of the czar’s family was a Jewish ritual murder, while saying that such a claim is not anti-Semitic.
By: AP
The head of a Russian Orthodox Church panel looking into the 1918 killing of Russia’s last czar and his family says his statement that it is investigating whether it was a ritual murder has no anti-Semitic connotations.
Father Tikhon Shevkunov said Thursday that he was only talking about the “ritual revenge of atheist Bolsheviks” and never implicated the Jews.
Earlier this week, he said many in the church panel are convinced that the killings were “ritual murder.” That drew an angry response from Russia’s largest Jewish group, which denounced the words as a revival of anti-Semitic myths.
Nicholas II, his wife and their five children were executed by a Bolshevik firing squad on July 17, 1918, in a basement room of a merchant’s house where they were held in the Ural Mountains city of Yekaterinburg. The Russian Orthodox Church made them saints in 2000.
Some Christians in medieval Europe believed that Jews murdered Christians to use their blood for ritual purposes, something which historians say has no basis in Jewish religious law or historical fact and instead reflected anti-Jewish hostility in Christian Europe.
The speculation that they were killed by the Jews for ritual purposes long has been promoted by anti-Semitic groups.

According to a report by Israel’s Channel 2 news on Sunday, the message was transmitted from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu through a third party, saying that while Israel has mostly refrained from intervening in the six-year-long civil war in Syria, it will change its policy and act against Assad’s regime if it feels threatened.

If elections were held today, the ruling Likud would be in a dead head with the opposition Yesh Atid (There is a Future) party. Each of the top two parties would receive 24 seats in the 120-seat Knesset. The center-left Zionist Union would win 17 seats, while the ultra-Orthodox Sephardic party Shas would barely makes it over the threshold at four seats.
In a survey made public on Channel 10 news on Sunday, Yair Lapid’s Yesh Atid party has strengthened considerably – more than doubling its current number of 11 Knesset members. Meanwhile, 24 seats for the Likud would mean a loss of over 20% of its mandate (down from the current 30).

American shopping frenzy hits Israel in long weekend of sales – and it continued on ‘Cyber Monday.’
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
In the United States, Black Friday is the informal name of the day after Thanksgiving, which is the fourth Thursday in November and a national holiday. But although all long weekends are conducive to shopping sales, this particular day has become renowned for the deals consumers can enjoy as it marks the beginning of the shopping season in the run-up to Christmas on December 25th.
It has routinely been the busiest shopping day of the year in the US since 2005, with up to 30% of sales for the year conducted on this day alone. According to numbers reported by Walla News, in 2016 this meant that 154 million Americans either shopped online or went to stores across the country, and spent $655 billion.

Seven decades after US troops set him free, a Holocaust survivor is now saying thank you to wounded US veterans. 
By: World Israel News Staff
Bernard Darty, a Holocaust survivor who has endured the worst at the hands of the Nazis, has donated $1 million for the benefit of wounded American US veterans, saying that he wishes to thank them for their sacrifice.
In a blog published by Fox News last week, Darty, a Paris native and retired co-founder of Darty Group, an electrical retailer operating more than 340 stores in three European countries, wrote that since the Holocaust and his liberation by US troops, he has felt “a deep connection to American troops for saving my life – a feeling that resurfaces every year on Veterans Day and throughout the holiday giving season.”
This year, at the age of 83 and seven decades after his liberation, Darty is saying thank you to the American soldiers of the 1940’s by donating $1 million to organizations serving wounded American veterans.
“My donation to the Wounded Warrior Project and the Services for Armed Forces program of the American Red Cross is my way of giving back, thanking previous generations of warriors for helping me. I hope this inspires others to give back as well,” Darty wrote.
“Even though more than 70 years have passed since my rescue, it’s not too late to give back.

Solar power set to bolster Israel’s renewable energy supply

With privatized solar power sources preparing to add 1,600 megawatts to Israel’s electricity supply in the next three years, the Jewish state is approaching its targets for renewable energy sources.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Israel’s Minister of National Infrastructure, Energy, and Water Resources, Yuval Steinitz, just published a new policy that will allow for 1,600 additional watts of electricity to be added to Israel’s electric grid exclusively through the use of solar energy over the next three years. This addition will permit Israel to reach 44% of the target it set in 2009 to have one-tenth of all electricity in the country produced from clean energy sources by the year 2020, reported Globes on Sunday.
Considering how sunny it is in Israel most of the year, it is not surprising that the vast majority of Israel’s renewable energy is solar – and yet, to date, only three percent of Israel’s electricity is produced from such renewable sources. The project now being pushed by the ministry is meant to change this percentage drastically in just a few years’ time.

Following protracted negotiations and numerous ultimatums, ultra-Orthodox Health Minister Yaakov Litzman quit the government over work carried out on railways during the Sabbath. 
By: Jack Ben-David, World Israel News
Health Minister Yaakov Litzman (United Torah Judaism) submitted his official letter of resignation Sunday morning following a flurry of threats that he would quit the coalition over Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s failure to agree to halt work on Israel’s trains during Shabbat.
Explaining his decision in his letter to finally follow through on his repeated ultimatums, Litzman said that work on Shabbat was “a contravention of halacha (Jewish law)” and “goes against the status quo.”
After vacating the post, Netanyahu announced that the portfolio would be placed under his direction.
Litzman elaborated on the reasons he had chosen to resign, charging that the government was in repeated violation of the coalition agreement reached at the time of its formation, which committed to maintaining Shabbat as an official day of rest on which no work is to be carried out.

About 100 companies operating in Judea, Samaria and eastern Jerusalem, as well as some 50 international companies, have received letters warning that they will be on a UN “blacklist.” 
By: AP
Weeks ahead of the expected completion of a UN database of companies that operate in Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria, Israel and the Trump Administration are working feverishly to prevent its publication.
While Israel is usually quick to brush off U.N. criticism, officials say they are taking the so-called “blacklist” seriously, fearing its publication could have devastating consequences by driving companies away, deterring others from coming and prompting investors to dump shares of Israeli firms. Dozens of major Israeli companies, as well as multinationals that do business in Israel, are expected to appear on the list.
“We will do everything we can to ensure that this list does not see the light of day,” Israel’s U.N. ambassador, Danny Danon, told The Associated Press.
The U.N.’s top human rights body, the Human Rights Council, ordered the compilation of the database in March 2016, calling on U.N. rights chief Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein to “investigate the implications of the Israeli settlements on Palestinians.”

Arab states will abandon Israel when Iran threat dies, security expert warns
 November 25, 2017
Arab states will abandon Israel when Iran threat dies, security expert warnsAn Iranian missile (AP/Vahid Salemi/File)
By: Ben Cohen, The Algemeiner
One of Israel’s leading national security analysts has urged caution in assessing a potential alliance between the Jewish state and the conservative Sunni Arab countries, pointing to the recent abandonment of the Kurds by the international community as a sobering reminder that perceived national interests invariably trump other values like loyalty and shared security.
“[L]et us suppose the Iranian threat disappears because Israel launches a successful attack on Tehran’s nuclear facilities,” wrote Lt. Col. (Res) Mordechai Kedar in a briefing for Israel’s Begin-Sadat Center for Security Studies (BESA).  “As a result, war breaks out between Israel and Iran (including Hezbollah), Israel sacrifices hundreds of soldiers and civilians – and the Iranian problem ceases to exist. Will the Arab and Western worlds be grateful to Israel and act to protect its interests?”
“The answer is simple: look to the Kurds,” Kedar – an expert on Syria who spent 25 years with IDF military intelligence – continued. “What happened to them will happen to Israel,” he said, in a reference to last month’s onslaught on Kurdish-held areas by Iranian-backed and Iraqi government forces following the September 25 referendum in which 93 percent of Kurdish voters opted for independence.

‘Kurds Fought ISIS…and Were Thrown to the Wolves’

“The Kurds fought ISIS, sacrificed their soldiers and people, and were thrown to the wolves once they had outlived their usefulness,” Kedar asserted. “That is exactly what will happen to Israel once it saves the Arab states from the Iranian threat. And why not? The immediate interests of each state, not the moral rights of the Kurds and the Israelis, are what make the world go round.”

“The Kurds expected the world, headed by the US, to stand behind them once ISIS was defeated, remembering their great contribution to that defeat and supporting their demand for independence,” he noted. “Those hopes were dashed very quickly.”

Revived concern over the prospect of a new war with Hezbollah on Israel’s northern border and the escalation of a bitter of war of words between the Saudi and Iranian regimes have fueled the expectation that Saudi Arabia and its allies and Israel will end their historic enmity. On Thursday, Saudi Crown Prince Muhammed Bin Salman described Iran’s “supreme leader,” Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, as “the new Hitler of the Middle East” – echoing the language used by many Israeli and Jewish leaders in their responses to Iran’s frequent threats to eliminate Israel.

“Israel may indeed be the darling of the ‘moderate Sunni axis’ – for as long as there is an Iranian threat,” Kedar wrote. “Once that is gone, the possible fracturing of Iran into ethnic components (on the lines of the former USSR, Yugoslavia, and Czechoslovakia) will obviate the need for good relations with Israel. For this reason, Israel would do well not to give up land for a piece of paper with the word ‘peace’ stamped on it. That paper can easily fly away in the desert wind while the words on it fade in the blazing Middle Eastern sun.”

Examples of Short-term Alliances: Jordan, Egypt
Kedar argued that in addition to the Kurdish experience, Israel’s peace treaties with Egypt and Jordan provided “two unassailable confirmations” of the perils of an alliance of short-term convenience.
“The [Egypt-Israel] peace treaty did not stand in [former Egyptian President] Hosni Mubarak’s way when he allowed Hamas and its supporters to smuggle arms from Sinai to Gaza,” he wrote. “It was in Mubarak’s interest to bring about a war between Israel and Hamas, because it allowed Israel to do Egypt’s dirty work with the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood (Hamas). As soon as Sinai became a haven of jihadism and began fighting Egypt, the weapons smuggling from Sinai to Gaza ceased abruptly. In short, the peace between Israel and Egypt exists so long as it suits Egyptian interests.”
On Jordan, Kedar said that “King Abdullah II changed his father’s [the late King Hussein] policies and is a strong backer of the idea of a Palestinian state in the West Bank with its capital in East Jerusalem. He acts against Israel in every international forum, as if he were one of its greatest enemies. He relates to the peace treaty as an agreement to refrain from war and no more, while enjoying its attendant economic benefits.”

Vanity Fair has provided a detailed account of how Israel’s elite intelligence unit allegedly obtained information that led to the exposure of an ISIS plot to blow up airliners. 
By: World Israel News Staff
The Washington Post in May revealed that President Donald Trump had shared classified, highly sensitive intelligence with two high-ranking Russian envoys, Sergey Kislyak and Sergey Lavrov, during their visit at the Oval Office.
It has now been revealed that the sensitive intelligence, collected by the Israel, exposed an Islamic State (ISIS) plot to bomb airliners by planting explosives in electronic devices.
The exposure of the plot led to a four-month-long US and British ban on the use of electronic devices on flights originating from 10 Muslim countries.
Trump’s disclosure reportedly infuriated Israeli officials, as it was shared with the White House on condition that it would remain confidential. Intelligence sharing between the two allies, however, was not significantly hindered.

By: TPS and World Israel News Staff
The United Kingdom is set to spend  78 million pounds to purchase a missile defense shield based on Israel’s Iron Dome to protect the Falkland Islands, British media reported Wednesday.
ccording to a report in the Daily Mail, the UK will install a Sky Sabre system, which employs the command and control system used by Iron Dome missile defense system. The command and control is system is produced by Mprest for Rafael Advanced Defense Systems.
An UK Ministry of Defense spokesperson said that “following an open competition, we selected Rafael  to provide the main computer system which will link our state-of-the-art radars and new Land Ceptor launchers together to boost our defense of the Falkland Islands.”
The procurement from Rafael is part of a  280 million pound defense package for the Falklands announced by the British Ministry of defense in 2015, Israel’s Globes reported.
Natan Barak, chief executive of Mprest, told the Daily Mail that the system “can protect any area worldwide”.
“You have to identify, as fast as you can, which object is in the air, whether it is Great Britain’s or something else, and see if it is a threat,” Barak said. “It also has to be capable of integrating with launchers and missiles. Our system is capable of doing this very fast. We are going to be part of the NATO network and we are going to integrate our system with Britain’s command and control system. They will be able to operate and activate our system to fire on threats.”

Report: Assad offers Israel buffer zone along Syrian borderVladimir Putin (L) and Bashar Assad. (Mikhail Klimentyev, Kremlin Pool Photo via AP)
A Kuwaiti newspaper maintains that the Syrian leader proposed a demilitarized zone along Israel’s border. The same publication claims Netanyahu is seeking the elimination of an Iranian presence near the Golan Heights.

By: World Israel News Staff

Embattled Syrian dictator Bashar Assad communicated to Russian premiere Vladimir Putin his willingness to establish a demilitarized zone along Syria’s border with Israel in the Golan Heights. The offer was revealed in Kuwaiti newspaper Al Jarida in a report focusing on Assad’s seemingly impromptu visit last week to Russia.

During the visit, Assad apparently asked Putin to communicate the offer to his Israeli counterpart, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, reported the Jerusalem Post. While Netanyahu responded favorably to the offer, which promised a sizable buffer zone according to an unnamed Israeli source, the Israeli leader vowed to continue pursuing Hezbollah in Syria and to destroy any Iranian facilities within about 25 miles of Israel’s border.

Israel’s border with Syria has remained a problematic region, with fighting from the Syrian civil war occasionally spilling into Israel. Military activity within Syria, including arms movements, by Hezbollah and other factions has also necessitated IDF strikes during the past year, some of which were reportedly carried in the last few weeks. The recent collapse of the Islamic State (ISIS) has also affected the political landscape in the region.

In addition to military actions along the Syrian border, the IDF has also facilitated significant medical relief efforts for Syrian civilians, many of whom have been devastated by the civil war. Until recently, the situation in Syria remained a three-pronged conflict in which Assad’s forces battled rebel factions as well as ISIS.

While Assad’s offer regarding a demilitarized zone on the border on the Golan Heights is reportedly part of a larger agreement to stabilize relations between his nation and Israel, it is also likely that the alleged compact would require Israel to abide by Assad’s continuing  rule in Syria. The extent to which Israel is open to this possibility remains unclear, with the Jewish state objecting to recent ceasefire terms in the Syrian civil war that may permit Iran to increase its influence in the region.

The Journal reported Tuesday that Mueller’s team is probing Kushner’s involvement in an attempt to thwart a United Nations (UN) resolution passed in December 2016 that condemned Israel for its presence in Judea and Samaria.
Trump, who was president-elect at the time, called for the US to veto the resolution supported by then President Barack Obama, saying the resolution was “extremely unfair to all Israelis.”
The UN Security Council (UNSC) passed the resolution due to a US’ abstention.

IDF protects 1000 Jews praying at Joseph’s Tomb, rescues 3 Israelis

Israeli army units in the Palestinian Authority-controlled city of Shechem (Nablus) guarded a massive prayer group at a Jewish holy site, and were separately called upon to save three Israelis whose car had been stolen and set on fire.
By: World Israel News Staff
Early Tuesday morning, IDF forces assisted around 1,000 Israelis seeking to pray in the town of Shechem, which is home to the Tomb of Joseph, one of the most important figures in the Bible. While the site has remained a major destination for Jewish pilgrimage, it has become increasingly dangerous for Jews to visit Shechem, now controlled by the Palestinian Authority (PA) which refers to the town as Nablus.
In addition to the large group of worshipers at Joseph’s Tomb on Tuesday morning, three other Israelis had independently entered the town without authorization from the IDF, which is prohibited. After the three had exited their car, the vehicle was stolen and apparently set ablaze by local Arabs. The IDF was then called on to locate and rescue the Israelis.
Since control of Shechem was transferred to the PA during the 1990s as a result of the Oslo accords, Arabs have committed a number of violent attacks on Jews visiting the area to pray at Joseph’s Tomb.

Former IDF Soldier, Left-Wing NGO Spokesman Caught Slandering Israeli Army
According to the Israeli State Attorney, the spokesman for ‘Breaking the Silence’, a former IDF soldier, lied when claiming that he personally used violence against a Palestinian while serving in the army.  Prime Minister Benjamin  Netanyahu accuses the left-wing NGO with intentionally  slandering the Israeli Army.
Israel’s State Attorney found that a spokesman for Breaking the Silence (BtS), an NGO that alleges abuses by Israel soldiers, lied when he claimed that he had beaten a Palestinian suspect.  Dean Issacharoff, spokesman for BtS had spoken of an incident where he claimed that he beat a Palestinian man whom he was arresting while doing reserve duty in Hebron.
The State Attorney closed the case on Thursday “after the investigation revealed that the events he described did not occur.”
The Arab man, whom Issacharoff said he had beaten, acknowledged that he had been arrested in February 2014, as Issacharoff said, but confirmed that he wasn’t beaten.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin to discuss the latest developments in Syria.
The Kremlin said that Putin also called Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi to discuss the same issue.
Tuesday’s conversations  with Netanyahu and el-Sissi followed Putin’s calls with President Donald Trump and Saudi King Salman. They come a day after Syrian President Bashar Assad’s surprise visit to Russia for talks with Putin. The Kremlin says Putin and Assad discussed potential diplomatic initiatives for Syria ahead of a summit between Russia, Turkey and Iran and a new round of Syria peace talks in Geneva later this month.

While many discussion participants believe that Israel ought to take Diaspora Jewry’s concerns on a range of subjects into consideration, the report found that their support for Jerusalem remained heartfelt and strong.
Half “completely” agreed with the statement, “When visiting Jerusalem I feel at home,” and 30 percent more “somewhat” agreed with this statement. A Dialogue participant in Australia described his feelings this way: “I love the culture of Jerusalem, I would love to buy an apartment around the German Colony and spend six months of the year there.

Trump puts North Korea back on US’ terrorism blacklist

Trump puts North Korea back on US’ terrorism blacklistPresident Donald Trump (AP/Pablo Martinez Monsivais)
Seeking to put “maximum pressure” on North Korea, President Trump has put the country back on the US’ state-supporters of terrorism blacklist. 
By: AP
President Donald Trump announced Monday the US is putting North Korea’s “murderous regime” on America’s terrorism blacklist.
Trump said that the designation as a state sponsor of terror is long overdue, and promised a new wave of sanctions as part of a “maximum pressure campaign” over North Korea’s development of nuclear weapons.
North Korea will join Iran, Sudan and Syria on the blacklist. The North had been designated for two decades until 2008, when it was removed in a bid to salvage international talks aimed at halting its nuclear efforts. The talks collapsed soon after.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said designating North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism is part of a push to continue “to turn the pressure up.”
Tillerson addressed reporters at the White House on Monday after Trump announced that the US is putting North Korea on America’s terrorism blacklist.
Tillerson said that the message to leader Kim Jong Un is that “this is only going to get worse until you’re ready to come and talk.”
Tillerson noted that it had been about two months since the country tested a missile. “We’re hopeful this period will continue,” he said.
Tillerson conceded that the designation is a “very symbolic move” with limited practical effects.

Knesset advances bill to crack down on BDS activists within Israel

Knesset advances bill to crack down on BDS activists within Israel(Miriam Alster/Flash90
“They don’t want peace, they simply want to delegitimize the State of Israel and destroy it as the Jewish homeland,” said one of the bill’s sponsors.
By: Jack Ben-David, World Israel News
Israeli lawmakers moved ahead in the Knesset Tuesday with legislation designed to target Israeli activists and companies that “systematically” call for boycotts, divestments and sanctions against Israel, making them liable to pay hefty penalties of up to NIS 500,000.
Spearheaded by Likud MK Yoav Kisch, the bill is the latest legal tool being sharpened by the Israeli government to puncture the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement (BDS), which has been inflated in recent years by the endorsement of prominent artists and musicians such as Roger Waters.
The new bill, which passed its initial reading by a vote of 60-40, is also the successor of a similar bill ratified in 2011 which enabled companies to demand compensation from activists calling for the boycott of Israeli firms located in various parts of Israel, including Judea and Samaria.
The law, however, was partially defanged by the High Court of Justice two years ago after it scrapped a clause allowing for the imposition of unlimited fines on the pro-BDS activists or companies.

Israel’s attitude towards any peace plan will be determined according to its security and national interests, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated, while adding that “these were made clear to our American friends.”
Speaking at the beginning of the weekly Cabinet meeting on Sunday, Netanyahu related to news reports over the weekend that the Trump administration was at its final stages of drafting a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians. Israel’s Channel 2 had reported that Trump’s peace plan includes the establishment of a Palestinian state.
“With regard to President Trump’s plan, we heard plenty of speculations over the weekend; I am not planning to address them.  However our attitude towards this plan will be determined according to security and national interests of the State of Israel, and these were made clear to our American friends,” he stated.
Earlier on, Netanyahu’s office categorically dismissed the reports as “not accurate,” adding that Israel’s “security needs and national needs of the State of Israel” would determine whether or not Jerusalem would approve of any peace plan

Rabin’s assassin Yigal Amir seeking retrial

Israeli Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked insists that Yigal Amir will remain in prison for the rest of his life.
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
The man who assassinated Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin 22 years ago is in the process of preparing a motion which calls for his case to be retried.
Rabin was assassinated by  gunman Yigal Amir on November 4, 1995, at the end of a mass rally in support of the Oslo Accords at what was then called the ‘Kings of Israel Square’ in Tel Aviv.
Amir opposed Rabin’s peace initiative and particularly the signing of the Oslo Accords. He was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison.
Larisa Amir Trimboblar, the assassin’s wife, announced on Faebook on Saturday that a Swiss law firm is preparing a case which will call for Amir’s retrial and ultimately his release from prison.
While Amir is not denying that he fired shots at Rabin, he is claiming that the bullets he fired did not cause Rabin’s death.
The lawyers for the assassin say they have found more than 18 points which they claim will challenge Amir’s conviction, and plan to submit their findings to the media.
Israeli leaders reject the notion of a retrial. Tweeting in response to the story, Minister of Education Naftali Bennett (Jewish Home) wrote: “The murderer of the prime minister must end his days in prison. On this topic, there is no [political] right or left. Every murder is terrible, but the murder of a prime minister can dismantle the country.”

Israeli Defense Minister: We need $5 billion boost to prevent next warIsraeli Minister of Defense Avigdor Liberman (Ariel Hermoni/Ministry of Defense)
Israeli Minister of Defense Avigdor Liberman says growing problems require a nearly $5 billion boost to security budget.  
By: World Israel News Staff
Israeli Minister of Defense Avigdor Liberman has called for a significant boost to his ministry’s budget in light of a major shift in Israel’s defense necessities.
The ministry is seeking another NIS 4.8 billion that would be paid out over the course of three years to contend with a “dramatic change” in the threats Israel is now facing in the region.
According to Liberman,“There is a fundamental change in the security situation in the region which requires an increase in the defense budget.” Liberman added,  “Our primary goal is to prevent the next war.”
Russia’s growing military presence in the area, and specifically in Syria, the introduction of a precision weapons threat, and Iran’s dramatic military buildup are part of the “major” changes Liberman listed in his request for more funding.
The Ministry of Defense in 2015 signed a five-year budget plan, but Liberman says that these new threats and other were not taken into consideration when the budget was formulated.
He noted that Israel’s defense establishment has already exceeded the 2015 budget by NIS 1.8 billion in investment in new projects that were not included in the 2015 budget.
Liberman concluded by saying,“the IDF will deal with every challenge under any circumstance.”

Marking 40 years since Anwar Sadat helped usher in a historic peace accord, Prime Minister Netanyahu contrasted the former Egyptian president’s willingness to end conflict with the Palestinians’ recalcitrance.
By: Jack Ben-David
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday he regretted the fact that he had not yet met the Palestinian version of former Egyptian president Anwar Sadat, who signed a peace accord with Menachem Begin in 1979, and who “had a desire to end the conflict.”
Addressing the Knesset Plenum to mark 40 years since Sadat departed for an historic journey to Jerusalem to kick-start peace talks with Israel, departing from a long-standing policy of institutionalized animosity toward the Jewish state, Netanyahu expressed his “sincere regret, (that) I have not yet come across the Palestinian Sadat who will declare his desire to end the conflict, who will recognize the State of Israel in any borders, whatever they may be, and will support our right to live in peace and security.”
Highlighting the changes that are sweeping the Middle East, and seemingly referencing the bolstered, albeit clandestine, relations between Israel and Saudi Arabia, Netanyahu implied that Sadat’s decision to normalize relations may be emulated.

By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah admitted that his terror organization is providing arms to terror groups in Gaza, while insisting that Hezbollah is not a terror organization.
In a televised speech delivered on Monday, Nasrallah said that allegations made by Arab foreign ministers during an Arab League meeting on Sunday that Hezbollah was involved in terrorism were “silly” and “completely baseless.”
The Arab League declared Hezbollah a terror organization while accusing it of sending ballistic missile to Yemen’s Houthi rebels and saying that Hezbollah was responsible for the missile attack on Riyadh a week ago.
“I categorically deny any role of any member of Hezbollah in launching this missile,” said Nasrallah, saying that the terror group has not sent ballistic missiles, advanced weapons “or even a pistol” to Yemen, Bahrain, or Kuwait.

WATCH: First footage of Syrians crossing Israeli border for medical care
 November 21, 2017
For the first time, the IDF allowed journalists to film Syrians crossing the border en route to medical treatment at a hospital in northern Israel.

Unprecedented footage broadcast on Israeli television Sunday revealed Syrian women and children crossing into Israel for medical treatment with assistance from the IDF, in the latest showcasing of the Jewish state’s humanitarian aid to its war-torn neighbor.

The scope of the IDF’s “Operation Good Neighbor” mission had been revealed for the first time in July. The operation was initiated several years ago as an ad-hoc measure to treat Syrians who came to the border asking for help from Israel. The effort developed into an expanded program in June 2016 as humanitarian needs continued to grow.
“Our goal is to provide security and create good neighborly relations for people on both sides of the border,” Lt. Col. E (full name withheld for security reasons), the commander of Operation Good Neighbor, told JNS.org. “We will continue to do so in the best and most efficient way possible.”
According to the IDF, the operation has provided medical treatment to more than 4,000 Syrians, including hundreds of children. The military has transferred more than 119,000 gallons of heating and cooking fuel as well as 40 tons of flour, 225 tons of food, 12,000 packages of baby formula, 1,800 packages of diapers, 12 tons of shoes and 55 tons of cold weather clothing.
Additionally, the IDF is facilitating the construction of two clinics within Syria that will be run by local residents and NGOs to support some 80,000 Syrians living near Israel’s border in the Golan Heights region. Another clinic is being constructed on an IDF outpost on the Israeli side of the border.
Assaf Orion, a senior research fellow at Israel’s Institute for National Security Studies, explained that since the start of the Syrian Civil War, Israel has been “wise to avoid being drawn into the quagmire, its policy focusing on safeguarding well-defined red lines” on issues such as cross-border attacks and weapons transfers to terrorist organizations like Hezbollah. Yet when Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime “attacked the Syrian populace, besieged its towns, starved them, and deprived them of water, electricity and medical services, Israel chose to reach out to communities across its borders,” he said.

Arab League harshly criticizes Iran, brands Hezbollah a terror group

The Arab League has stepped up its rhetoric against Iran’s belligerence in the region. But will they take action against the Shiite power?

By: AP

In a resolution long on rhetoric but short on concrete steps, Arab foreign ministers who met in Cairo Sunday delivered a tirade of criticism against Iran and its Lebanese terror proxy Hezbollah, saying Tehran was destabilizing the region.

The Arab leaders said they planned to “brief” the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) on Iran’s destabilizing policies in the region, particularly its support for Shiite rebels in Yemen, with a view to submit at a later stage an anti-Iran Arab resolution.

In what is perhaps the only concrete measure, the ministers said Arab telecommunications satellites would ban Iranian-financed television stations for what they said was their fomenting of sectarian and ethnic tensions and because they posed a threat to Arab security. It gave no details.

“We are not declaring war on Iran at this stage,” Arab League chief Ahmed Aboul-Gheit said. “We have not taken a decision to ask the Security Council to meet, but we are just briefing the council and maybe the next stage would be for us to meet and call for a Security Council meeting and submit a draft Arab resolution (against Iran).”

Lebanon, where Hezbollah is a key member of a coalition government, and Iraq, a majority Shiite nation bound by close political and religious ties to Iran, stated their reservations about the harsher parts of the resolution, including one that branded Hezbollah a “terrorist” organization. The draft also blamed the Shiite group of supporting “terrorist groups” across the region and supplying them with weapons, including ballistic missiles.

The Lebanese envoy to the Arab League, Antoine Azzam, made carefully weighed comments at the meeting that reflected his country’s delicate religious and ethnic balance.

While not mentioning Iran by name, he said Lebanon condemned all attacks against Arab nations, but blamed exploitable inter-Arab divisions that allowed international and regional powers to promote their interests.

The House Foreign Affairs Committee passed the ‘Taylor Force Act’ that cuts all funding to the Palestinian Authority until it stops financially rewarding terrorists.
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
The House Foreign Affairs Committee on Wednesday unanimously voted in favor of the Taylor Force Act which requires the US to cut all funding to the Palestinian Authority (PA) until it ceases financial rewards for terrorism.
The Taylor Force Act would require the US Secretary of State to verify that the PA has ended its policy of paying off terrorists and their surviving family members. The bill also calls on the PA to publicly condemn terror attacks and to take steps to bring the perpetrators to justice.
The legislation was named after American war veteran Taylor Force, who was stabbed to death in a Palestinian terror attack that left 10 others wounded in Jaffa last March. Force, 29, served tours of duty in the US Army in Iraq and Afghanistan and was a graduate of the prestigious West Point Military Academy. He was in Israel as part of a Vanderbilt University trip.
The US provides the PA with approximately $300 million in aid annually. The PA spends approximately $300 million in payments to terrorists and their families every year.

Charge sheet: 26 year old ‘Ahmad A.’ killed one person and wounded six others in supermarket stabbing spree.
By: AP and World Israel News Staff
German authorities indicted a Palestinian on murder charges for stabbing and murdering one person and wounding six others at a Hamburg supermarket in July.
The terrorist wanted to kill as many members of the Christian faith as possible to avenge what he considered to be injustices against Muslims worldwide, federal prosecutors said in a statement over the weekend.
He considered his actions a “contribution to a worldwide jihad,” they added.
“It was important to him to kill as many German nationals of the Christian faith as possible. He wanted his actions to be viewed in the context of an Islamist attack, and understood as a contribution to jihad worldwide,” the statement said.
The 26-year-old suspect, a rejected asylum-seeker identified only as Ahmad A. due to German privacy rules, was charged with one count of murder, six counts of attempted murder and six counts of serious bodily harm.
Prosecutors said investigators had found no credible evidence that Ahmed, who arrived in Germany in 2015, was involved with or had the support of any Muslim terror group, such as the Islamic State (ISIS) group. They also found no evidence that anyone else was involved in the attack.
The suspect carried out the attack on July 28 with a kitchen knife he grabbed from a supermarket shelf. He was then overwhelmed by passers-by and arrested.

Interior Minister Deri announced the barring of 20 European lawmakers from entering the Jewish state due to their BDS activity and planned meeting with imprisoned Palestinian terrorist Marwan Barghouti.
By: World Israel News Staff
Following up on government directives to deny anti-Israel activists entry to the country, Interior Minister Aryeh Deri said he will adopt the recommendation of Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan to bar 20 European lawmakers from visiting Israel and the Palestinian Authority next week.
The delegation has 20 participants, including French parliamentarians and mayors, and members of the European Parliament. On the itinerary is a prison visit with terror chief Marwan Barghouti who is serving five life sentences for orchestrating three terror attacks that killed five people.
The BDS Movement attempts to delegitimize and isolate Israel in an effort to advance Palestinian interests. Many leaders of the campaign have publicly affirmed that they seek Israel’s destruction.
In August 2016, Israel established an inter-ministerial team tasked with tracking down and deporting anti-Israel activists who come to the Jewish State for the purpose of harming the country. The team also works to prevent the future entry of activists who operate for the BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) movement.

A deal enabling Israelis to travel to the US without a visa is said to have been met with American demands, including permission for Palestinians with US citizenship to travel from Ben Gurion Airport.
By: Manny Ben-David
An agreement currently being finalized that would enable Israeli citizens to travel to the US without having to go through the cumbersome process of obtaining a visa is reportedly dependent upon the easing of Israeli travel restrictions for Palestinians with US citizenship.
The prospective visa waiver agreement, announced on Monday by Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked following strenuous efforts taken by Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit and Deputy Attorney General for International Law Dr. Roy Schöndorf, would see the eradication of a series of obstacles Israelis are currently required to pass in order to travel to the US, including interviews at the US embassy and the payment of hefty financial sums.

“We are prepared to share information if there is a need to do so,” Lt. Gen. Gadi Eizenkot said regarding Israel’s increasing ties with the Saudis and their common concerns over Iran.
Israel’s military chief of staff says he is willing to share intelligence with Saudi Arabia, a country that shares Israel’s concerns about Iran.
Lt. Gen. Gadi Eizenkot says the two countries “share many interests.”
Asked if Israel has recently shared intelligence with Saudi Arabia, Eizenkot said, “We are prepared to share information if
Eizenkot spoke in an interview with the Arabic Elaph website, which was published on Thursday.
The remarks, confirmed in a transcript provided by the Israeli military, reflect the two countries’ increasing alignment over what they see is a rising threat posed by Iran to the region, especially as the war in Syria winds down.

The US opposes a UN resolution that bans pro-Nazi speech, because it contradicts the First Amendment to the constitution. How Will Israel vote under pressure from Trump?
By: AP
The US plans to vote against a yearly resolution at the United Nations (UN) that condemns the glorification of Nazism, State Department officials said Wednesday.
Although it may seem counterintuitive, US officials said free speech protections and other problems with the resolution make it impossible for America to support.
Introduced by Russia, the resolution calls on all UN nations to ban pro-Nazi speech and organizations, and to implement other restrictions on Nazi speech and assembly.
That’s a non-starter in the US, where First Amendment protections guarantee the right to utter almost anything they want — even praise for Adolf Hitler’s followers.

By: AP
A group of 5 Democratic congressmen on Wednesday introduced articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, accusing him of obstruction of justice and other offenses, in a long-shot effort that seems doomed to failure in the Republican-led House.
Indeed, the large majority of Democrats seem intent on having nothing to do with the effort either as lawmakers await the results of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia. Democratic leaders have argued that the impeachment campaign riles up Trump’s GOP base, a critical bloc in next year’s midterm elections.

Although most of her poems were written only in the final six years of her life, she is considered by many to be the greatest of all Hebrew poets.

By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
An aviation engineer working for the Hamas terror organization who was assassinated in Tunisia last December was killed by an Israel hit team using Bosnian passports, Hamas announced Thursday.
In a press conference held in Beirut, Mouhamad Nazal, a member of Hamas’ Politburo, said that Hamas engineer Mohammed Al-Zawari was shot and killed by a Mossad team which was assisted by European nationals.
Assassins shot Mohammed Al-Zawari, 49, multiple times at point-blank when he was sitting in his car near his home in Sfax, southeast of Tunis.
A truck parked near the home blocked the way to his car. Two assailants using weapons equipped with silencers rushed forward and shot him at close range, riddling him with some 20 bullets as he sat in his car.
Tunisian authorities arrested eight nationals on allegations of involvement in the shooting. Four rental cars were used in the killing and two handguns and suppressors were seized during the investigation.

Former concentration camp guards are facing justice more than 70 years after the Holocaust.

By: AP and World Israel News Staff

German prosecutors said Wednesday they have indicted two former Nazi SS guards on charges of being accessories to murder while they worked at a Holocaust concentration camp.

Both men served as guards at the Stutthof concentration camp, located near what is now the Polish city of Gdansk, Dortmund prosecutor Andreas Brendel told The Associated Press.

The indictments were filed against a 93-year-old man from Borken who served in Stutthof from June 1942 to September 1944 and a 92-year-old man from Wuppertal who was there from June 1944 to May 1945.

The charges were filed last week at the state court in Muenster but only announced Wednesday because the defendants first had to be notified. Both deny they had any knowledge of killings at the camp, Brendel said.

Stutthof was a Nazi concentration camp built in a secluded, wet, and wooded area near the small town of Sztutowo in the northern Poland. Stutthof was the first camp outside German borders, in operation from the German invasion in September 1939, and the last camp liberated by the Allies in May 1945.

Jews in Zimbabwe should stay indoors and Israelis should refrain from visiting the country, Israel’s Foreign Ministry said.

Jewish community leaders in Zimbabwe have instructed Jews residing in the African country to seek shelter indoors amid a developing military coup, Israel’s Foreign Ministry said Wednesday.

Zimbabwe’s army said it has taken over the country’s capital of Harare, detained longtime President Robert Mugabe and his wife, and seized control of a state-run broadcaster.

According to the Israeli Foreign Ministry, 172 Jews and Israeli citizens currently live in Zimbabwe, with 108 residing in Harare and 64 in the city of Bulawayo.

Israel’s Ambassador to South Africa Lior Keinan is in direct communication with the Jewish community in Zimbabwe as the situation unfolds.

The Foreign Ministry also issued a travel warning to Israelis, cautioning them against visiting Zimbabwe in the wake of the current disarray in the country.

The warning also suggests that Israelis currently in the southern African Nation remain in their homes “until the situation becomes clear.”

By: World Israel News Staff
Amid warnings of planned terror activity in retaliation for IDF operations against the Islamic Jihad, Israel has set up Iron Dome batteries in several locations in the center of the country.
The IDF believes the terror group is planning an attack on the Jewish state following the Israeli military’s demolition of a Gaza terror tunnel two weeks ago. A total of 14 terrorists were killed in the aftermath of the tunnel collapse, including two senior Islamic Jihad field commanders.
Major General Yoav Mordechai, Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), issued a warning Saturday night in Arabic in a Youtube video to terrorist groups in Gaza and Damascus that Israel will respond to any act of terror.
“We are aware of the plot that the Islamic Jihad has been planning against Israel,” Mordechai declared. “They are playing with fire.”

Jerusalem claims new US/Russian brokered ceasefire deal fails to provide secure Golan border.
By: World Israel News, AP and JNS.org
Israel has voiced sharp objections to a Syrian ceasefire deal because it enables Iranian forces gain a stronghold in areas close to Israel’s borders.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had intensively lobbied in Moscow and Washington for the agreement to create a 37-50 mile secure buffer zone between Israel and Syria, apparently to no avail.
“Israel has no objection to a (peace) agreement in Syria, but we are firmly opposed to such an agreement in which Iran and its proxies will be left with a military presence in Syria,” Netanyahu told Russian President Vladimir Putin in May.
Israeli Minister for Regional Cooperation Tzachi Hanegbi said Sunday that the agreement “does not answer Israel’s unequivocal demands that there will be no developments that bring Iranian or Hezbollah forces closer to Israel’s border with Syria in the north.”

Wonder Woman star reportedly refuses to do the sequel to her blockbuster movie unless accused sexual harasser Brett Rattner dropped as co-producer
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Gal Gadot, the Israeli model-turned-actress who became an overnight superstar due to the smashing success of her role in the Wonder Woman movie. Gadot reportedly told Warner Bros. that if they don’t buy out co-producer Brett Rattner’s share she won’t be in the sequel.
Rattner’s production company, Rat-Pac Dune co-financed the hit movie, which grossed over $400 million at the box office, meaning that Rattner made a tidy sum from Gadot’s sparkling performance. Now, it seems, the actress who embodied women’s empowerment on film is taking a stand in real life to say that she will not help enrich a man who has recently been accused by six women of having sexually harassed them.
Rattner also directed hits such as Superman Returns and X-Men: The Last Stand. He has denied all allegations against him, through his lawyer. This doesn’t seem to matter to Gadot. Warner Bros. told Page Six, ““She’s tough and stands by her principles. She also knows the best way to hit people like Brett Ratner is in the wallet. She also knows that Warner Bros. has to side with her on this issue as it develops.”

Israeli life expectancy up 10 years since 1970

Israeli life expectancy up 10 years since 1970(Shutterstock)
OECD reports that in all 35 member countries, average life expectancy has increased by 10.3 years since 1970.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
In its “Health at a Glance 2017” report, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) attributed a significant rise in life expectancy to healthier lifestyles, higher incomes, better education and improved health care.
Relative to OECD countries, life expectancy in Israel is high – 82.1 in 2015. Japan leads at 83.9.
The Central Bureau of Statistics also reports that Israel spends only $2,822 on average per capita. This translates to 7.4% of its Gross Domestic Product (including investments), a number that has been stable for an entire decade.
Among all OECD-member countries, the average spending per capita in 2016 was $4,003 – and in the US it is an eye-popping $9,892 per year, or 17.2% of the gross domestic product.
This is a strong indicator that spending more does not necessarily mean people are getting value for their money. American spending on health has increased much more than in other countries since 1995, says the report, yet life expectancy gains have been smaller. The US sits in the middle of the pack, at 81 years.

More than two dozen people related to Karoline Cohn, a young Jewish Holocaust victim, are to participate in a memorial ceremony for her, a Jewish girl from Frankfurt who was murdered by the Nazis.
He existence had been all but erased by the Nazis, until archeologists last year unearthed at the grounds of the former of the Sobibór Nazi extermination camp in Poland a silver piece of jewelry which bears the words “Mazal Tov” written in Hebrew on one side, and on the other side the Hebrew letter “ה” (God’s name) as well three Stars of David.
Among other personal items found at the death camp were a Star of David necklace, a woman’s watch and a metal charm covered in glass with an engraving of the image of Moses holding the Ten Commandments; on the reverse side of the charm was the inscription of the Jewish prayer “Shema.”
Through the use of Yad Vashem’s online pan-European Deportation Database “Transports to Extinction,” they were able to ascertain that the pendant belonged to Karoline Cohn. It’s almost identical to one belonging to Anne Frank, who was murdered in the Holocaust and is well known for the diary she wrote while in hiding in Amsterdam.

By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
A British anti-Semitism watchdog has called on Prince Charles to rescind a letter in which he made deeply troubling comments about Jewish refugees being a source of Mideastern turmoil and remarks about the power of the “Jewish lobby” in the US.
The Campaign Against Anti-Semitism (CAA) stated on Sunday, after the letter was exposed by the UK’s Daily Mail, that they view the letter’s contents as “disturbing.”
The CAA wrote that “it appears that our future king believed in 1986 that the ‘influx’ of Holocaust survivors to Israel were not ‘Semitic,’ ‘[the] cause [of] great problems’ including terrorism, and should be ‘eliminated,’ presumably through their removal.”
“The letter also appears to endorse the view that Israel is not simply the result of Jewish self-determination in the historic Jewish homeland, but the result of bullying by an all-powerful ‘Jewish lobby’ which holds US presidents in its clutches. We view these comments as unmistakably anti-Semitic,” the CAA wrote.

Iran builds military base in Syria, 30 miles from Israeli border
Print Email 99 Comments
Iran has established a permanent military base in Syria, just 30 miles from Israel’s northern border.
By: World Israel News Staff
Iran’s military is establishing a permanent base inside Syria, just outside Damascus, BBC reported on Friday.
Citing a “Western intelligence source,” the report says that the Iranian military has taken over a compound at a site used by the Syrian army outside El-Kiswah, south of the Syrian capital and just a short 50 km from the border with Israel.
Satellite images of the purported site, commissioned by the BBC, appear to show construction activity at the site between January and October this year. The images show a series of two dozen large and low-rise buildings, likely for housing soldiers and vehicles.
The images do not reveal any signs of large or unconventional weaponry.
Independent analysis of the images says the facility is military in nature, but the BBC noted that it is impossible to independently verify the purpose of the site and the presence of the Iranian military.
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.

By: World Israel News Staff
Some 35,000 Jews were in Hebron over the weekend to celebrate Shabbat Chayei Sarah, during which Abraham’s purchase of the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron is recounted in the weekly Torah portion.
Shabbat Chayei Sarah has become a day for connecting world Jewry to the Jewish community in Hebron.
The Torah records that Abraham negotiated for and purchased the Cave of the Patriarchs from Efron the Hittite, a local resident. Abraham insisted on purchasing the cave because he wanted the Tomb of the Patriarchs to be preserved as Jewish property for generations to come.
For this annual event, Jewish residents of Hebron open their homes to visitors.
Thousands of Jews descended on the 2,000 year-old structure for Sabbath prayers, which included vibrant singing and dancing. The streets of Hebron and the suburb of Kiryat Arba were filled with tents and caravans.
Arutz-7 reported that Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel, Social Equality Minister Gila Gamliel, Environmental Protection Minister Zeev Elkin, Deputy Defense Minister Rabbi Eli Ben Dahan, Members of Knesset, rabbis, public figures, and guests from Israel and abroad all converged on the holy city. Uri Karzan, director of the Jewish community in Hebron, said the number of participants this year was at an “all-time high.”

By: AP and World Israel News Staff
Iranian state TV says a 7.2-magnitude earthquake has jolted the region near the border between Iran and Iraq. The number of casualties varies according to various reports, with Sky News saying at least 10 were killed.
Faramarz Akbari, Ghasr-e Shirin’s governor, said that six people had died and scores more injured, according to the state-run IRNA news agency.
The U.S. Geological Survey confirmed the quake on its website, placing its epicenter at around 32km (19 miles) outside the Iraqi city of Halabja, and issuing an “orange” alert for “shaking-related fatalities and economic losses.”
The semi-official Iranian ILNA news agency reported that at least 14 provinces had been impacted by the earthquake.
Iranian social media was abuzz with posts of people evacuating their homes, especially from the cities of Ghasr-e Shirin (near Iraqi border) and Kermanshah.
Esmail Najar, head of Iran’s National Disaster Management Organization, said “some injured people might be buried under the rubble in Ghasr-e Shirin”.
Iran is prone to near daily quakes as it sits on many major fault lines. In 2003, a 6.6 magnitude flattened the historic city of Bam, killing 26,000 people.

There have been several such incidents in recent months.
“Israel will not tolerate any violation of its sovereignty and will react forcefully to any provocation,” Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said in response to the incident. “We see the Syrian regime as responsible for any violation of Israel’s sovereignty. We call on the Syrian regime to restrain all factions operating from within its territory. We will not allow the Shi’ite axis to become entrenched in Syria and use it as a base for forward operations.”

NYT: Trump’s Mideast team is drafting a new Middle East peace plan.
By: World Israel News Staff
President Donald Trump and his team have begun to draft a peace plan of their own to resolve the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, the New York Times reported Saturday.
Trump’s Mideast envoy Jason Greenblatt and Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law, have visited the Middle East several times and have met with both sides over the past 10 months, and are now reportedly at the stage of drafting a document which they hope to present by early next year.
Greenblatt told The Times that the US has “spent a lot of time listening to and engaging with the Israelis, Palestinians and key regional leaders over the past few months to help reach an enduring peace deal.” Greenblatt cautioned: “The US is not going to put an artificial timeline on the development or presentation of any specific ideas. Our goal is to facilitate, not dictate, a lasting peace agreement to improve the lives of Israelis and Palestinians and security across the region.”
Trump’s team sees what the Times described as “the convergence of factors that make the moment ripe,” including a willingness by Arab states to solve the Palestinian issue so that they can refocus their attention on Iran, which they consider a major threat.

“It should be clear: Any retaliation of any kind by the Islamic Jihad will be met with a powerful and determined Israeli response,” Israel warned.
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
The IDF issued an unusual and stern message to the Islamic Jihad terror group, warning of dire repercussions if it attacks Israel.
The IDF estimates that the Islamic Jihad is planning an attack on the Jewish State following the IDF’s demolition of a terror tunnel some two weeks ago. A total of 14 terrorists were killed in the aftermath of the tunnel collapse, including two senior Islamic Jihad field commanders.
The Palestinian terror group has vowed revenge.
In a message in Arabic published on Saturday, Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) head Maj. Gen. Yoav Mordechai warned the Islamic Jihad to abandon plans to take revenge on Israel, saying that Israel knows of their plans and is prepared to repel them.
“It should be clear: Any retaliation of any kind by the Islamic Jihad will be met with a powerful and determined Israeli response, not only against the Jihad, but also against Hamas,” the Mordechai warned.

“Our Palestinian people, who have always loved you as a great leader, still have that love, respect and loyalty,” Abbas said in pre-recorded message honoring Yasser Arafat, a terrorist leader responsible for thousands of deaths.
By: AP and World Israel News
Tens of thousands of Gaza Palestinians marked the 13th anniversary of the Palestinian arch-terrorist Yasser Arafat’s death on Saturday for the first time since the Islamic Hamas group seized the territory a decade ago.
In the wake of a brewing reconciliation between Hamas and the Fatah party Arafat founded, Fatah supporters flocked to al-Saraya Square in Gaza City from all over the coastal enclave to commemorate the event, waving their yellow flag, raising posters of Arafat and donning his trademark kaffiyeh headgear.
Arafat, head of the terrorist Palestine Liberation Organization and president of the Palestinian Authority (PA), died in 2004 at a hospital in France after two years of an Israeli siege on his headquarters in Ramallah. Palestinians accuse Israel of poisoning him but offer no proof.

By: World Israel News Staff
The United Kingdom’s Prince Charles alleged that an “influx of foreign Jews” was one of the causes of strife in the Middle East, while expressing his hopes that the “American Jewish lobby” would be confronted.
The British Daily Mail on Sunday revealed leaked correspondence between Prince Charles and his mentor, the Afrikaner explorer Laurens van der Post showing that the heir to the British throne blamed the “the great problems” in the Middle East region on the post-Holocaust immigration of European Jews to Israel.
Prince Charles penned the letter in 1986 after official visits to Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Qatar, which he called “fascinating” and during which he “learned a lot about the Middle East and Arab outlook.”
“I now begin to understand better their (Arabs’) point of view about Israel,” he wrote, “Never realized they see it as a US colony. I now appreciate that … it is the influx of foreign, European Jews (especially from Poland, they say) which has helped to cause great problems.”
Prince Charles also expressed hope that a US president would “have the courage to stand up and take on the Jewish lobby.” The US president at the time was Ronald Reagan.
Stephen Pollard, an editor of the Jewish Chronicle, criticized the prince’s use of the term “Jewish lobby” as anti-Semitic and said his views were “the absolute classic Arab explanation of the problems in the Middle East

Berlin police are investigating the vandalism of poignant Holocaust memorials in the city.
By: AP and World Israel News Staff
Berlin police are investigating the disappearance of more than a dozen Holocaust memorials called “Stolpersteine” (stumbling stones), which are small brass plaques placed in the sidewalks outside of the former homes of Jews and other victims of the Nazis in the German capital.
Police said Monday that residents in the central Neukoelln district reported the small memorials missing from several streets.
A local politician said he suspects members of the far-right are behind the offensive act.
The project was initiated in 1996 by artist Gunter Demnig, and seeks to bring back the names of Jews and others to places where they once lived. Each square plaque carries the name of the victim and information like when they were deported and where they were killed.
“It’s upsetting and it hurts,” Demnig said on Tuesday, according to Germany’s Deutsche Welle.
There are more than 60,000 of the plaques installed across Europe.

Israel deploys ‘Iron Dome’ missile defense amid terror threats

Israel has set up the Iron Dome defense system in the center of the country in anticipation of attacks by the Islamic Jihad and other terror groups.

By: World Israel News Staff

Amid warnings of planned terror activity in retaliation for IDF operations against the Islamic Jihad, Israel has set up Iron Dome batteries in several locations in the center of the country.

The IDF believes the terror group is planning an attack on the Jewish state following the Israeli military’s demolition of a Gaza terror tunnel two weeks ago. A total of 14 terrorists were killed in the aftermath of the tunnel collapse, including two senior Islamic Jihad field commanders.

Major General Yoav Mordechai, Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), issued a warning Saturday night in Arabic in a Youtube video to terrorist groups in Gaza and Damascus that Israel will respond to any act of terror.

“We are aware of the plot that the Islamic Jihad has been planning against Israel,” Mordechai declared. “They are playing with fire.”

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also warned Palestinian terror groups not to attack Israel. “We will take a very firm stance against anyone who tries to attack us or attacks us from any area. I mean any source: rogue factions, organizations – anyone,” he asserted Sunday morning at the weekly cabinet meeting.

In response, the Islamic Jihad vowed to carry out attacks, calling the Israeli threats an “act of war.”

Adding to the tension, IDF forces on Sunday night apprehended a senior Islamic Jihad operative in the Palestinian town of Araba, in the Jenin area.

Iran builds military base in Syria, 30 miles from Israeli border
Iran has established a permanent military base in Syria, just 30 miles from Israel’s northern border.
By: World Israel News Staff
Iran’s military is establishing a permanent base inside Syria, just outside Damascus, BBC reported on Friday.
Citing a “Western intelligence source,” the report says that the Iranian military has taken over a compound at a site used by the Syrian army outside El-Kiswah, south of the Syrian capital and just a short 50 km from the border with Israel.
Satellite images of the purported site, commissioned by the BBC, appear to show construction activity at the site between January and October this year. The images show a series of two dozen large and low-rise buildings, likely for housing soldiers and vehicles.
The images do not reveal any signs of large or unconventional weaponry
Independent analysis of the images says the facility is military in nature, but the BBC noted that it is impossible to independently verify the purpose of the site and the presence of the Iranian military.

By: World Israel News Staff
Some 35,000 Jews were in Hebron over the weekend to celebrate Shabbat Chayei Sarah, during which Abraham’s purchase of the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron is recounted in the weekly Torah portion.
Shabbat Chayei Sarah has become a day for connecting world Jewry to the Jewish community in Hebron.
The Torah records that Abraham negotiated for and purchased the Cave of the Patriarchs from Efron the Hittite, a local resident. Abraham insisted on purchasing the cave because he wanted the Tomb of the Patriarchs to be preserved as Jewish property for generations to come.
For this annual event, Jewish residents of Hebron open their homes to visitors.
Thousands of Jews descended on the 2,000 year-old structure for Sabbath prayers, which included vibrant singing and dancing. The streets of Hebron and the suburb of Kiryat Arba were filled with tents and caravans.
Arutz-7 reported that Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel, Social Equality Minister Gila Gamliel, Environmental Protection Minister Zeev Elkin, Deputy Defense Minister Rabbi Eli Ben Dahan, Members of Knesset, rabbis, public figures, and guests from Israel and abroad all converged on the holy city. Uri Karzan, director of the Jewish community in Hebron, said the number of participants this year was at an “all-time high.”

The number of casualties following a powerful 7.2 magnitude earthquake near the Iran-Iraq border is unconfirmed. Tremors were reported in Israel.
By: AP and World Israel News Staff
Iranian state TV says a 7.2-magnitude earthquake has jolted the region near the border between Iran and Iraq. The number of casualties varies according to various reports, with Sky News saying at least 10 were killed.
Faramarz Akbari, Ghasr-e Shirin’s governor, said that six people had died and scores more injured, according to the state-run IRNA news agency.
The U.S. Geological Survey confirmed the quake on its website, placing its epicenter at around 32km (19 miles) outside the Iraqi city of Halabja, and issuing an “orange” alert for “shaking-related fatalities and economic losses.”
The semi-official Iranian ILNA news agency reported that at least 14 provinces had been impacted by the earthquake.
Iranian social media was abuzz with posts of people evacuating their homes, especially from the cities of Ghasr-e Shirin (near Iraqi border) and Kermanshah.
Esmail Najar, head of Iran’s National Disaster Management Organization, said “some injured people might be buried under the rubble in Ghasr-e Shirin”.
Iran is prone to near daily quakes as it sits on many major fault lines. In 2003, a 6.6 magnitude flattened the historic city of Bam, killing 26,000 people.
The impact was felt in cities across the Middle East, including Israel, where residents along the coast said they felt the tremors.

While Trump’s team is voicing optimism, nothing has significantly changed so far to indicate that a breakthrough is possible.
Dennis Ross, the veteran Middle East peace negotiator, said Trump’s team has “done a very good job of presenting themselves as having listened” and is now “taken seriously” in the region, the Times reported.
Trump has stated on several occasions that achieving peace between Israel and the Palestinians would be “the ultimate deal.” During a press conference with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House in February Trump raised eyebrows when he said, “I’m looking at two states and one state. And I like the one that both parties like.”

Pollard described the letter as “jaw-droppingly shocking,” adding “that they [the Prince’s comments] come from the heir to the throne is unsettling, to put it mildly.”
A spokeswoman for Prince Charles explained the incident, saying the letter “clearly stated that these were not the Prince’s own views about Arab-Israeli issues but represented the opinions of some of those he met during his visit which he was keen to interrogate.”
“He has built a proven track record of support for both Jewish and Arab communities around the world and has a long history of promoting interfaith dialogue and cultural understanding,” she noted.

Netanyahu demands 2 billion shekels from Jewish National Fund

Netanyahu demands 2 billion shekels from Jewish National FundBenjamin Netanyahu with a JNF collection box. (
In an escalating battle between the Jewish National Fund and the Israeli government, the fate of 2 billion shekels hangs in the balance.
By: Ebin Sandler, World Israel News
Historically, the Jewish National Fund (JNF) pioneered efforts to aid the burgeoning State of Israel, purchasing and developing land in the Ottoman Empire’s territories which would later form large swaths of the modern Jewish state. The JNF is also well known for planting trees, building reservoirs, and establishing parks in Israel, and is a major land owner.
The current conflict between the JNF and the government centers on advancing legislation that requires the organization to transfer 2 billion shekels (around $570 million) to the state. On Tuesday, members of the Knesset approved the legislation, paving the way for the government to force the JNF to place 80 percent of its earnings under direct state control, or risk being disqualified for tax exempt status.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also declared his support for the measure, justifying it based on the “needs” of the state.
“The Jewish National Fund sells land every year for billions of shekels. It is very important that this money be channeled to the needs of the State of Israel, these needs cannot wait,” said Netanyahu according to TPS. “I respect the work the organization has done for the State of Israel and the Jewish people since its inception in 1901, but today it is clearer than ever that the future of the Jewish people is tied to the future of the State of Israel.

Saudi Arabia on Monday accused the Shiite Hezbollah terror group of being behind Saturday’s missile attack on one of the kingdom’s major international airports on the outskirts of Riyadh.
The missile, fired towards King Khalid International Airport, was shot down by the Saudi air defense forces, with fragments landing in an uninhabited area north of the capital.
Yemen’s Houthi rebels, supported by Iran, claimed responsibility for the attack. However, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel bin Ahmed al-Jubeir told CNN on Monday that “it was an Iranian missile, launched by Hezbollah, from territory occupied by the Houthis in Yemen.”

Opinion: Britain should apologize for undermining the Balfour Declaration

Opinion: Britain should apologize for undermining the Balfour DeclarationJames Arthur Balfour (Wikipedia)
Anti-Israel activists demand that Britain apologize for the Balfour Declaration, but in fact they should apologize for undermining the historic document.
By: Daniel Krygier, Political Analyst, World Israel News
Israel’s enemies demand that Britain ”apologize” for the Balfour Declaration. According to the false anti-Zionist narrative, Britain gave the Jews a land that belonged to the Arabs.
The centennial of the British Foreign Secretary James Arthur Balfour’s famous letter to Jewish leader Lord Rothschild in 1917 serves as a good opportunity to revisit history and set the record straight concerning Britain, the Jews and the Arabs.
First, the British never gave Israel to the Jews. Second, the Jews are the indigenous population of Israel. Third, there was never an Arab country or state in the land of Israel, and much of the local Arabs were recent immigrants from Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and Egypt.
The ink on the Balfour Declaration had barely dried before Balfour’s Christian Zionism was replaced with British anti-Zionism that appeased extremist Arab leaders at the expense of the Jewish people. Not only did Britain not create modern Israel; post-Balfour London did everything in its power to prevent Israel’s rebirth. The support for a Jewish national homeland was replaced by the infamous White Paper in 1939 that undermined and postponed the reestablishment of the Jewish state by a decade. As a result of London’s cynical anti-Jewish policies, millions of Jews perished in the Holocaust, since they had nowhere to go and Britain prevented Jews from returning to their ancestral homeland. If Britain should apologize for anything relating to the Balfour Declaration, it should be for London’s failure to implement its promise to Lord Rothschild and the Jewish people.

Alberto Nisman, who was investigating the 1994 car bombing of the Jewish center in Buenos Aires and the Iranian angle before he was found dead in his home in 2015, was murdered, a new probe has revealed.
By: AP
A new police report has dramatically revived one of the greatest criminal mysteries in Argentine history — the possible murder of a crusading prosecutor that has roused grave suspicions about a president and added to doubts about the probe into the country’s most deadly terrorist attack.
An investigation by the country’s border police agency has concluded that the man who led that terror probe was murdered just four days after he formally accused then-President Cristina Fernandez of covering up the role of former Iranian officials who had been charged in the 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center that killed 85 people.

For the first time, a Houthi missile came close to hitting a heavily populated area in Saudi Arabia.
Saudi Arabian forces intercepted a ballistic missile fired Saturday by rebels in Yemen toward one of the kingdom’s major international airports on the outskirts of the capital, Riyadh.
The missile fire drew an immediate rebuke from President Donald Trump, who blamed Iran in part for the attack.
The missile was fired across Saudi Arabia’s southern border by Yemen’s Shiite Houthi rebels, according to several Houthi-owned media outlets, including Al-Masirah and SABA. The rebels are at war with the kingdom, and are supported and armed by Iran.
Saudi Arabia said the missile was shot down by its air defense forces, with fragments of the missile landing in an uninhabited area north of the capital. Saudi Arabia’s Civil Aviation Authority said the missile did not cause any damage to King Khalid International Airport and that flights were not disrupted.
This is the first time that a Houthi missile has come so close to a heavily populated area, and it appears to be the farthest that such a missile has reached inside Saudi Arabia.

Report: Weinstein hired ex-Mossad agents to investigate accusations

Report: Weinstein hired ex-Mossad agents to investigate accusationsHarvey Weinstein. (Photo by Charles Sykes/Invision/AP
The embattled Hollywood producer engaged a firm staffed by former Israeli secret service agents to uncover information regarding mounting claims of sexual assault and abuse.
By: World Israel News Staff
On Monday, The New Yorker published a lengthy feature detailing film executive Harvey Weinstein’s efforts to track and investigate actresses, journalists and other individuals with information related to sexual assault and rape accusations. Among the acclaimed actresses that have leveled these accusations are Rose McGowan and Anna Sciorra, in addition to a number of other women who have made public their interactions with the well-known Hollywood producer.
According to The New Yorker, Weinstein hired private investigators from a firm called Black Cube, including individuals described as “ex-Mossad agents,” who developed an elaborate ruse and background story to gain the confidence of McGowan. The investigators apparently sought to glean information regarding both the accusations themselves and details related to a report slated to appear in the New York Times.
One such investigator apparently intimated that she herself had an allegation against Weinstein in order to gain entree to journalists investigating the matter. Other tactics reportedly included using journalists to directly solicit information from alleged Weinstein victims.
Ultimately, The New Yorker report maintains that Weinstein’s goal was to suppress allegations of sexual harassment and assault. As evidence of this plan, the report refers to a July 2017 contract between Weinstein and Black Cube with the stated aim of stopping the publication of abuse allegations that eventually were published in The New Yorker and the New York Times.

A police complaint on vandalism has led to the exposure of an Arab terror plot.
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
A complaint submitted to the police on acts of vandalism has led to the exposure of an Arab terror plot, Israel’s police announced Tuesday.
Police were recently notified that several buildings under construction in Jerusalem’s Pisgat Zeev neighborhood were heavily damaged, including harm to the electrical system. The damage is estimated at tens of thousands of shekels.
The police launched an investigation into the vandalism, and subsequently arrested a suspect, a 32-year-old Arab from the neighborhood of Shua’fat.
Security forces who conducted the arrest found he had Hamas flags in his home.
The suspect initially denied the charges, but then admitted he had been planning attacks against Israelis as revenge over the incarceration of his two brothers in Israeli prisons for acts of terrorism.
Police believe that beyond the damage the suspect caused, he also planned to attack Israeli security personnel.

By: World Israel News Staff
An historic agreement was signed in Jerusalem on Tuesday between the National Library of Israel (NLI), the Russian State Library in Moscow and the Moscow-based Peri Foundation, which will enable the public to access the Günzburg Collection, which contains some of the most important Hebrew manuscripts and books in the world.
Through the support of the Peri Foundation, 2,000 manuscripts and thousands of books in the collection will be digitized, making these significant works accessible online. The originals will remain in Russia.
The Günzburg Collection was started in the 19th century by Joseph Günzburg and continued by his son Horace. The family manuscript collection grew significantly towards the end of the century when Joseph’s grandson, Baron David Günzburg, acquired over half of the manuscripts in the current collection.

Netanyahu: Bodies of 5 terrorists to be used in exchanges with Hamas, ‘No free gifts’

Netanyahu: Bodies of 5 terrorists to be used in exchanges with Hamas, ‘No free gifts’IDF forces on the border with Gaza. (
The IDF has recovered the bodies of five Palestinian terrorists killed after it destroyed a terror tunnel. They will be used as leverage in possible future exchanges with Hamas.
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
The IDF uncovered and retrieved the bodies of five Palestinian terrorists who were killed last Monday during the IDF’s demolition of a terror tunnel dug from the Gaza Strip into Israel.
“During ongoing operation to neutralize the terror tunnel that was targeted in Israel on 10/30, the IDF uncovered the bodies of 5 terrorists,” an IDF spokesman tweeted on Sunday .
The five terrorists are believed to be low-ranking foot soldiers and members of Islamic Jihad, the terror group that dug the tunnel.
A total of 14 terrorists were killed in the aftermath of the tunnel collapse, including two senior field commanders.
Islamic Jihad has vowed revenge.
Last week, Israel denied a request by the Hamas terror group, through the Red Cross, to approach the site and recover the bodies.

Princeton’s Center for Jewish Life cancels event with Israel’s deputy FMDeputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely (Hadas
In the latest attack on free speech by pro-Palestinian activists on American campuses, an address by an Israeli diplomat was canceled.
By Adina Katz, World Israel News
The Center for Jewish Life (CJL) at Princeton University has canceled a campus lecture by Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely at the last minute, caving in to pressure from the Alliance of Jewish Progressives and Allies, which takes a pro-Palestinian stand.
The lecture was scheduled for Tuesday at Princeton’s Hillel House. She was notified just a day earlier.
In a letter published Sunday in the Daily Princetonian, the group stated that to date, the CJL “has indefinitely postponed” Hotovely’s talk “until it is vetted through the CJL’s Israel Advisory Committee.”
“Hotovely’s work causes irreparable damage to the prospects of a peaceful solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict,” the letter claims, referring to her policy statements as “racist.”
The pro-Palestinian group objects to her support for construction of Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, including her Zionist proclamation that “This land is ours. All of it is ours. We did not come here to apologize for that.”
According to the letter, “Hotovely’s alarming vision for the future of the region is coupled with a complete rejection of Palestinian history and connection to key sites such as the Haram al-Sharif. In a recent speech in the Israeli Parliament, Hotovely spoke directly to Palestinian Members of Knesset, saying, ‘You are thieves of history. Your history books are empty, and you are trying to co-opt Jewish history and Islamicize it.’”

Expert: Iran-North Korea nuclear collaboration is Israel’s ‘worst nightmare’(Youtube)
“There are more differences between North Korea and Iran than there are similarities, but both countries are determined nuclear proliferators.”
By: Andrew Friedman/TPS
An international commitment to a failed model of diplomacy, coupled with loopholes in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), otherwise known as the Iran nuclear deal, could create a fertile breeding ground for Iran to collaborate with North Korea to achieve nuclear capability without technically violating the 2015 nuclear deal, a panel of experts said Monday.
“There are more differences between North Korea and Iran than there are similarities, but both countries are determined nuclear proliferators,” said Dr. Emily B. Landau, head of the Arms Control Program at the Institute for National Security Studies at Tel Aviv University, told a conference titled “No good options on North Korea? Regional and global implications from an Israeli perspective.”

After the indictment of several members of Trump’s campaign staff, rumors are circulating that the president’s trust in his son-in-law and senior adviser is waning.
By: World Israel News Staff
While accusations related to US President Donald Trump’s connections to Russia have remained a fixation of major media outlets, the indictment of key campaign staff has reportedly resulted in Trump’s questioning the quality of advice offered by his son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner. Trump allegedly pointed a finger at Kushner for his role in events that led to indictments of former campaign manager Paul Manafort and former defense secretary Robert Gates, according to a report published last week by Vanity Fair.
Specifically, Trump reportedly took issue with Kushner’s advice regarding the termination of former national security adviser Mike Flynn and former FBI director James Comey, which led to the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller. Under Mueller’s direction, the Russia investigation produced the indictments of Manafort and Gates.

The Israeli Air Force (IAF) is hosting air forces from seven nations, in the largest air drill in the Jewish state’s history.
Some 100 aircraft and several hundred pilots and support crews from the US, Greece, Poland, France, Germany, India and Italy will arrived in Israel for Blue Flag. Officers and attaches from nearly 40 countries are also attending as observers.
Established in 2013, Blue Flag is a biennial, two-week drill aimed at improving the type of planning, targeting and coordinated command and control required by coalitions operating together.
The goal of the exercise, conducted out of Uvda Airbase in the south, is to simulate extreme combat scenarios and to fly in coalition as realistically as possible.
Israel’s Blue Flag does not pit forces against one another; rather, it stresses cooperation over competition.
Among the seven participants, India, France and Germany are attending Blue Flag for the first time.
“The ‘Blue-Flag’ exercise is a significant quantum leap in our ability to hold an exercise and provide our multi-national participants with a quality training experience as performed in Israel,” said Lt. Col. Nadav, Commander of the 133rd Squadron (“Knights of the Twin Tail”), which operates “Baz” (F-15) fighter jets and is leading the exercise.

Shmuel Veffer, President and CEO of Galilee Green, a premier boutique olive oil company located in Yavne’el, a rural community in the Galilee, got a nasty surprise last Thursday afternoon. A group of loyal customers from Cullman, Alabama, sent him a private Facebook message informing him that his company’s Facebook page had been filled with hateful posts and one-star reviews. The latter endangered his business, as it brought down his page rating from 4.9 stars to just three within a few hours.
Some clients were intimidated by the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) assault. “I’m sorry, but I had to delete my review from your page,” one customer wrote. “I hated to do that, but comments on my review were piling up and were threatening, and they were going to inspect and discredit my own Facebook page like stalkers. I will gladly post another review in the future when you have this under control. But I’m leery of Israel’s enemies finding out information about me personally because of a link to my name… I want to support you, support Israel, and give you kudos for your awesome olive oil.

By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
Israel’s Ministry of Defense has constructed a new 30-meter high (98 ft.) barrier along parts of its border with Jordan, introducing a unique solution developed for the protection of the new Ilan and Asaf Ramon Airport, situated just north of Eilat.
Placed on dozens of tall pillars, the fence was designed to protect aircraft against a range threats, including ballistic projectiles, during take-off or landing at the airport. A 4.5 kilometer long fence and technological means are also included in its development.
The construction of the innovative barrier is part of Israel’s building of the eastern fence along the Israel-Jordan border between Eilat and the sands of Samar, at a cost of some NIS 300 million.

A new book by former DNC interim chair Donna Brazile says Hillary Clinton had ethically dubious influence over the governing body long before her nomination.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Former Democratic National Committee (DNC) chair Donna Brazile’s book, “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House,” comes out Tuesday. However, it was excerpted by Politico online last Thursday — and the reverberations are still being felt.
According to the book, the DNC was broke long before the Democratic primary campaign began, and both of Clinton’s campaign funds (Hillary for America and the Hillary Victory Fund — its joint fundraising vehicle with the DNC) had taken care of most of the debt (about $10 million).
According to the deal, Brazile writes, in exchange for the funding, Clinton would control the party’s finances, staffing, strategy — and all the money raised, whether by the state parties, the DNC or the campaign.
This “Victory Fund Agreement,” however, was signed in August 2015, almost a year before Clinton officially had the nomination. Customarily, this kind of control over the party apparatus is given to the nominee only after the convention. The Clinton campaign got it much sooner.

Another escalation? Saudi Arabia says that an attack by Iran-backed rebels on its capital is “an act of war.”
By: AP and World Israel News Staff
Saudi Arabia is blaming Iran for Yemen-based Shiite rebels launching a ballistic missile at its capital Riyadh, warning the attack could be considered “an act of war.”
“Iran’s role and its direct command of its Houthi proxy in this matter constitutes a clear act of aggression that targets neighboring countries, and threatens peace and security in the region and globally,” a statement released on Monday by the Saudi-led coalition said.
“Therefore, the coalition’s command considers this a blatant act of military aggression by the Iranian regime, and could rise to be considered as an act of war against the kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” the statement cautioned.
“The coalition command also affirms that the Kingdom reserves its right to respond to Iran in the appropriate time and manner,” the statement concluded.
Iran has backed the Houthi rebels, but denies arming them. There was no immediate response from Iran over the Saudi threat.
Following the attack on one of Saudi Arabia’s main airports, the Saudi-led coalition announced it has closed the air, land and sea ports in Yemen.

Multiple people were killed and wounded in a shooting attack in a church in a small Texas community.
By: AP
A man opened fire inside of a church in a small South Texas community on Sunday, killing multiple people and wounding others before being “taken down,” authorities said.

Authorities said a man walked into the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs and began shooting, killing multiple people and wounding others. Wilson County Sheriff Joe Tackitt told the Wilson County News that the shooter had been “taken down,” but it’s not known how the shooter died.

Authorities haven’t said how many were killed or wounded, but a Wilson County commissioner, Albert Gamez, told cable news outlets that emergency officials told him more than 20 people were slain and more than 20 others were wounded, though those figures hadn’t been confirmed.

Video on KSAT television showed first responders taking a stretcher from the church to a waiting AirLife helicopter. Some victims were taken by medical helicopter to the Brooke Army Medical Center, KSAT said.

A woman who lives about 10 minutes away from Sutherland Springs in Floresville and was monitoring the chaos on a police scanner and in Facebook community groups, said that everyone knows everyone in the sparsely populated county.

“This is horrific for our tiny little tight-knit town,” said Alena Berlanga. “Everybody’s going to be affected and everybody knows someone who’s affected,” she said.

President Donald Trump tweeted from Japan, where is is on an Asian trip, that he was monitoring the situation following the shooting. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott called the shooting an “evil act,” and promised “more details” from the state’s Department of Public Safety soon.
Sutherland Springs is 30 miles (48 kilometers) southeast of San Antonio.

Netanyahu called on the international community to counter the Islamic Republic’s aggression following the resignation of Lebanon’s Prime Minister.
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reacted to the dramatic resignation of Lebanese Prime Minister Saed Hariri on Saturday, saying it was “a wake-up call to the international community to take action against Iranian aggression.”
Hariri, in an address made in Saudi Arabia, announced he was resigning his position as prime minister of the country, citing Iran’s hostility and meddling in his country.
Iran generated “disorder and destruction” in Lebanon and meddled in its internal affairs as well as in other Arab countries, Hariri charged.
Referring to the Hezbollah terror group, which is based in Lebanon and supported and funded by Iran, Hariri said, “Iran’s arm … has managed to impose a fait accompli on Lebanon through the power of its weapons.”
“They have built a state within a state,” he declared.
“I say to Iran and its allies – you have lost in your efforts to meddle in the affairs of the Arab world,” Hariri continued, adding that the region “will rise again, and the hands that you have wickedly extended into it will be cut off.”
Hariri also said there was a recent attempt to assassinate him. His father Rafiq Hariri was killed by Hezbollah in 2005.
“The resignation of Lebanese Prime Minister Hariri and his remarks are a wake-up call to the international community to take action against the Iranian aggression that is trying to turn Syria into a second Lebanon,” Netanyahu stated. Iran has been working to establish a military presence in Syria.
“This aggression endangers not only Israel but the entire Middle East. The international community needs to unite and confront this aggression,” the Israeli premier demanded.
Iran denied Hariri’s charges and said his registration was a US and “Zionist” plot against the Islamic Republic.
“The resigning Lebanese prime minister’s repetition of the unrealistic and unfounded accusations of the Zionists, Saudis and Americans against Iran is an indication that this resignation is a new scenario for creating tension in Lebanon and the region,” Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi stated. “But we believe that the resistant people of Lebanon will pass this stage easily.
“The sudden resignation of Mr. Hariri and his statement in another country is not only surprising and regrettable but is also an indication of his playing a game designed by those who want ill for the region, and the winner of this game is not Arabic or Muslim countries but the Zionists,” he charged.

Dozens of Palestinians, accompanied by extreme leftists, came very close to a nearby Jewish community. A clash ensued.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
With the permission of the IDF and accompanied by the extreme-leftist organization Rabbis for Human Rights (RHR), dozens of Palestinians from the northern Samaria town of Huwara arrived Sunday morning at the Jewish community of Yitzhar, supposedly to harvest olives.
Residents of Yitzhar came to protest their arrival. As reported by Arutz-7, Uriah Cohen, head of Yitzhar’s secretariat, pointed out that the olive harvest has been used as a cover for many terrorist acts over the years. “Unfortunately,” he said, “it seems that the security establishment is yielding to the unacceptable and dangerous pressure of extreme leftist organizations.”
Six years ago, an Arab “olive farmer” near Itamar took advantage of the harvest to take note of the town’s security arrangements. Later, he later returned with a cousin and murdered Ehud and Ruth Fogel and three of their six children as they lay sleeping in their beds – one of them just three months old.
According to Sunday’s RHR statement, the Israelis “attacked” the Palestinians and “set fire to the orchard in Hawara, next to Yizhar.”
An IDF spokesman said a fight broke out, security personnel separated the two sides, and the Palestinians were quickly allowed to continue picking olives.
The Israel Police, which also had officers at the scene, did not make any arrests. “There was no attack, but rather it was an argument. The IDF broke it up,” a spokesperson said.

“We must not surrender to anti-Semitism, we must fight it,” Rivlin told the Spanish Jewish community, which is experiencing a rise in anti-Jewish sentiment.
By: World Israel News Staff
President Reuven Rivlin on Sunday evening unveiled a plaque to be affixed to the entrance of Madrid’s Ibn Gavriol school, commemorating his state visit to Spain and marking 100 years since the reestablishment of the Jewish community in that country since the expulsion of 1492.
“The community here today is a magnificent community, with tens of thousands of members of all ages. Jewish life on the Iberian Peninsula, which was cut off more than 500 years ago, is now full of life, and this is a great joy. This is a great victory for history and the spirit of the Jewish people.”
Rivlin noted, however, a significant rise in anti-Semitism in Spain in recent years. “We must not surrender to anti-Semitism, we must fight it,” he said, adding that he was “pleased that the Spanish government is taking steps in legislation and enforcement against this ugly phenomenon.”
“We must not be ashamed of or hide our identity,” the Israeli head of state declared. “We must not be ashamed of the connection between the State of Israel and the Jewish people. I know that there are concerns, and fears of terrorism against Jews, and of anti-Semitism which poses as criticism against Israel. We will fight these challenges together.”
‘We Are Brothers, Let Us Stand Together’
“The State of Israel today operates an extensive network to combat anti-Semitism disguised as the delegitimization of Israel, to fight hatred of Jews disguised as a criticism of Israeli government policy: these bodies are at your disposal, they are also here for you,” Rivlin stated.
Furthermore, “We love and respect every Jew, wherever they are, but you will be welcome always should you choose to come to your home in the State of Israel.”
He concluded by thanking the community for their warm welcome and said, “We are brothers, let us stand together.”
Isaac Querub, president of the Federation of Jewish Communities in Spain, conceded that the situation has become difficult, noting the social and economic instability in the country. “We need Israel, and Israel can always rely on our support,” he said.

The year 2017 has been fraught with anti-Semitic incidents in the US, an ADL report shows, although it includes bomb threats that turned out to be a hoax.
The number of anti-Semitic incidents in the US remains significantly higher in 2017 compared to 2016, according to new data released on Thursday by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL).
In addition to the significant bump in the first quarter of this year, there was also a distinct increase after the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Va., in August, the ADL reported.
In its latest Audit of Anti-Semitic Incidents, the ADL shows that from January 1 to September 30 there were 1,299 anti-Semitic incidents across the US, including physical assaults, vandalism, and attacks on Jewish institutions. This represents a 67 percent increase over the same period last year and already exceeds the 1,266 incidents reported throughout 2016.
Of the incidents reported, there has been a disturbingly high number of anti-Semitic bullying and vandalism incidents in K-12 schools and on college campuses across the US.
Compared to 2016, each of the first three quarters of 2017 had a higher number of incidents compared to the previous ear. These incidents peaked during the first quarter of 2017, and the pace slowed somewhat in the second and third quarters, the report shows.
Of all 1,299 anti-Semitic incidents so far in 2017, a majority – 667 – occurred in the first quarter of the year. An additional 632 anti-Semitic incidents were reported in the second and third quarters of the year, surpassing the 488 reported during the same period in 2016.
From the beginning of 2017 until September, there were 703 incidents of harassment, including 162 bomb threats against Jewish institutions, most of them perpetrated by an Israeli; 584 incidents of vandalism, including 52 against Jewish institutions and 12 physical assaults.
These incidents took place across the country, but consistent with prior reports, the states with the highest number of incidents tended to be those with the largest Jewish populations. These include New York State with 267 incidents; California with 197; Massachusetts, 117; Florida, 69; and Pennsylvania with 58 incidents.
The Charlottesville rally is August was one of at least 33 public white supremacist events in the US so far this year, which were supplemented with 188 incidents in which neo-Nazis used fliers to spread their message to new audiences, especially on college campuses.
Anti-Semitism continues to be a serious concern on college campuses and in public, private and parochial grade schools, the ADL underscored.
Incidents in K-12 grade schools in 2017 more than doubled over the same period in 2016, 269, up from 130. Of those, 142 incidents of harassment and 114 incidents of vandalism were reported.
On college campuses, a total of 118 anti-Semitic incidents were reported in the first three quarters of 2017, compared to 74 in the same period of 2016 – an increase of 59 percent.
“We are deeply troubled by the rising number of anti-Semitic incidents, bullying, and hate in our nation’s schools and we don’t think the statistics paint a full picture of what is happening,” said Jonathan Greenblatt, ADL CEO and national director. “Many school-based incidents still go unreported. As a country, we have to do more to ensure that our schools remain places where students can learn safely without fearing bullying and hate.”
Report Stresses Neo-Nazis, Omits Islamic Threat
What appears to be missing in the ADL report, which stresses the neo-Nazi movement, is any reference to Islamic anti-Semitism in the US, including on campuses.
“We are astonished and horrified by the rise in anti-Semitic harassment, incidents and violence targeting our communities. While the tragedy in Charlottesville highlighted this trend, it was not an aberration. Every single day, white supremacists target members of the Jewish community—holding rallies in public, recruiting on college campuses, attacking journalists on social media, and even targeting young children. For over a century, ADL has worked tirelessly to protect any community targeted by hatred – and we’re not about to stand down now. No matter how emboldened these fringe elements of society may feel, they will never threaten our mission,” Greenblatt stated.
Regarding the 703 incidents of harassment from the beginning of 2017 until September, the report failed to mention that the 162 bomb threats were discovered to be a hoax by a mentally ill 18-year-old American-Israeli. The indictment said his motive was to cause “considerable” public alarm.

Theresa May delivered a strong speech that expressed warm support for the “visionary” letter and the State of Israel.
Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and hundreds of dignitaries attended a dinner Thursday evening in London, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the issuance of the Balfour Declaration. The 67-word document was written as a letter during World War I by then-Foreign Secretary Lord Arthur Balfour to Lord Walter Rothschild to be sent on to the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland, and was published in the press one week later.
The first part of the declaration states. “His Majesty’s government views with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object… .”
“I believe it to be one of the most significant letters in history, a letter which gave birth to a most extraordinary country,” said May in the beginning of her speech.
She went on to praise the second half of the declaration as well, which took into account the sensitivity of others when it stated, “nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine.”
To loud applause, the prime minister then said, “So when some people suggest that we should apologize for this letter, I say ‘absolutely not.’ …We are proud to stand here today…and declare our support for Israel.” It should be noted that May has repeatedly rebuffed all Palestinian calls to express regret for the issuance of the document.
The prime minister then segued to Britain’s current relationship with Israel. Having met with the Israeli prime minister earlier in the day, May spoke of the interest she had expressed to “deepen our links in areas where Israel is leading the world…agriculture, health, science, technology and innovation.” She also tipped her hat to the existing cooperation between the two countries’ security forces, who face the same threats of terrorism.
The British prime minister openly acknowledged the constant dangers Israel faces, saying that her country is “absolutely committed to Israel’s security….and will always support Israel’s right to defend itself.” She made sure to include in this a firm rejection of any forms of boycotts, divestment or sanctions against the Jewish state.
She also strongly condemned anti-Zionism as a form of anti-Semitism.
“Today a new and pernicious form of anti-Semitism which uses criticism of the actions of the Israeli government as a despicable justification for questioning the very right of Israel to exist,” May said. “Criticizing the actions of Israel is never – and can never be – an excuse for questioning Israel’s right to exist, any more than criticizing the actions of Britain could be an excuse for questioning our right to exist.”
The Balfour declaration is generally seen as the first international recognition of the need for a homeland for the Jews, as the major Western world powers publicly endorsed it, including the United States, and it went on to form the basis of Britain’s mandate for Palestine in the 1920s.

As US prepares to leave UNESCO, envoy urges deep reforms

As US prepares to leave UNESCO, envoy urges deep reformsU.S. Charge d'Affaires to the UNESCO Chris Hegadorn (AP/Christophe Ena)
https://worldisraelnews.com/us-prepares-leave-unesco-envoy-urges-deep-reforms/?UNESCO must change and focus on its stated mission, the US ambassador to the organization urged.
The chief US envoy at the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) said anti-Israel bias and opaque bureaucracy are hobbling the UN cultural agency and is urging deep reforms.
Chris Hegadorn made the appeal Saturday at the agency’s Paris headquarters in one of the last major American speeches to UNESCO before the US withdraws next year.
Hegadorn said the decision to leave “wasn’t taken lightly” but was necessary because of budget reasons, because of the UNESCO’s inclusion of the Palestinians as a member and because countries use the agency to advance their political agendas, primarily against Israel.
He urged UNESCO to speed up spending decisions and do more to prevent “violent extremism,” meaning terrorism through education, notably on social media.
He said the US will remain “a determined advocate for the ideals on which UNESCO was founded” and support heritage protection and educational efforts.
The US State Department announced its withdrawal from UNESCO last month, citing “continuing anti-Israel bias” among the reasons.
“This decision was not taken lightly, and reflects U.S. concerns with mounting arrears at UNESCO, the need for fundamental reform in the organization, and continuing anti-Israel bias at UNESCO,” State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said in a statement.
“This is a courageous and ethical decision because UNESCO has become a theater of the absurd and instead of preserving history, distorts it,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated.
He has instructed the Foreign Ministry to prepare Israel’s withdrawal from UNESCO in parallel with the US, the Prime Minister’s Office said in a press statement.
“In recent years, UNESCO has transformed itself into a delusional organization that lost its professional path in favor of the political interests of certain countries,” said Israel’s representative Carmel Shama-Hacohen
