Palestinians give Trump 45 days to support two-state solution

Setting preconditions for talks, the PA will give the US negotiating team, arriving this week in the Middle East in an attempt to revive the peace process, 45 days to support their terms for a two-state solution.

The Palestinians will present President Donald Trump’s negotiating team with an ultimatum at their upcoming meeting with Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.
Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, will arrive in the region on Thursday accompanied by special envoy for international negotiations Jason Greenblatt and Dina Powell, deputy national security adviser. The team, hoping to revive the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, will meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah before heading to Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Jordan and Egypt.
The ultimatum states that unless progress is made within 45 days on launching talks with the Israelis, the Palestinians will consider themselves no longer committed to the US mediation and will turn to an alternative plan to push for unilateral United Nations recognition of a Palestinian state.

Iran fills the vacuum left by ISIS, Israeli spy chief warns

Iran fills the vacuum left by ISIS, Israeli spy chief warnsMossad head Yossi Cohen (Amos Ben Gershom/GPO)
Print Email 7 Comments
Israeli Mossad head Yossi Cohen cautions against Iran’s growing influence and menacing aspirations in the region, filling the void for ISIS.
Iran is filling the vacuum left by the Islamic State (ISIS) as its hold on territory in Syria and Iraq diminishes, Mossad director Yossi Cohen warned.
Briefing Israeli government ministers last week, Cohen said that the Middle East is “changing for the worse,” as Iran is spreading its influence both directly through Iranian forces and via local proxies in Lebanon, Iraq, Syria and Yemen.
Cohen told the ministers that Tehran has not relinquished its objective of becoming a nuclear threshold state and that the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) nuclear deal with the P5+1 helped the Islamic Republic get closer to its goal and emboldened the regime in its regional aggression.
Cohen noted that Iran’s economy has grown since the signing of the nuclear deal.
MORE https://worldisraelnews.com/irans-regional-threat-growing-mossad-head-warns/?

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Cohen’s warnings are further proof that the nuclear deal is seriously flawed. He pointed out that that Israel was not bound by international agreements signed by Iran, adding that Israel will continue to operate in various ways to protect itself from the Iranian threat.

US officials reportedly refrained from pledging to insist on the the removal of pro-Iranian militias at Israel’s border with Syria.
Israel remains concerned about Iran’s military buildup in southern Syria, at Israel’s northern border, despite high-level discussions between US and Israeli security officials in Washington last week.
The Israeli delegation that visited Washington included Yossi Cohen, head of Mossad and IDF Military Intelligence. The team, which met with US National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, Deputy National Security Adviser Dina Powell, Chief Negotiator Jason Greenblatt and others, was reportedly discouraged by the position taken by the US on Syria.
The delegation was sent to the US to warn against the military deployments by Hezbollah, Iranian forces and the Syrian regime, and to tell the US “exactly what is going on there,” according to officials. Such a military buildup directly threatens Israel.
Trump Administration’s ‘Lack of Clear Position’
Israeli media reports noted that the delegation shared “sensitive, credible and deeply troubling intelligence,” showing the expanding deployment of pro-Iranian forces in Syria, which estimates put at 500 Iranian army soldiers, 5,000 Hezbollah terrorists and several thousand guerrillas from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq.

Iran: We need only 5 days to restart nuclear program

Iran: We need only 5 days to restart nuclear programIran's vice president and nuclear chief Ali Akbar Salehi (AP/Petr David Josek)
AEOI head Salehi warned that Iran could return to producing nuclear-bomb grade material within five days.
Ali Akbar Salehi, head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), warned Tuesday that the Islamic Republic would need only five days to ramp up its uranium enrichment to 20 percent, a level at which the material could be used for a nuclear weapon.
“If there is a plan for a reaction and a challenge, we will definitely surprise them,” Salehi, who also serves as one of Rouhani’s vice presidents, stated on Iranian state television. “If we make the determination, we are able to resume 20 percent-enrichment in at most five days.”
“Definitely, we are not interested in such a thing happening. We have not achieved the deal easily to let it go easily. We are committed to the deal and we are loyal to it,” he asserted.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani issued a direct threat to the West last week, claiming his country is capable of restarting its nuclear program within hours — and quickly bringing it to even more advanced levels than in 2015, when Iran signed the nuclear deal with world powers.

Billy Joel wears yellow Star of David at New York concert

Celebrity Billy Joel’s donning of a yellow Star of David at a Madison Square Garden concert was surprising, given his previous criticism of performers pushing their political agendas.
Famous American singer/songwriter Billy Joel made a strong statement Monday evening at New York’s Madison Square Garden, where he wore a yellow Star of David for his concert performance.
Ahead of World War II, Jews in Nazi-occupied Europe were forced to wear a yellow Star of David as a means of identifying themselves as Jews.
Joel, 68, was born Jewish but is not religiously observant and considers himself a cultural Jew. Known to refrain from making political statements onstage, his choice of attire – clearly a political statement – was unusual.
“I try to stay out of politics. I am a private citizen and I have a right to believe in my own political point of view, but I try not to get up on a soapbox and tell people how to think,” he told Rolling Stone Magazine in June.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will travel to Russia on Wednesday to meet with President Vladimir Putin regarding the threatening situation in Syria, fueled by Iran.
“Tomorrow I will meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin. I will be joined by the head the Mossad and the head of the National Security Council. I will discuss with him Iran’s accelerated attempt to establish a military presence in Syria,” Netanyahu announced Tuesday evening through his media adviser.
“This attests, of course, to Iran’s aggression which has not lessened in the wake of the nuclear agreement. This also presents a problem not only to Israel, but rather to all the nations of the Middle East and the entire world,” he declared.
Netanyahu held a security consultation earlier in the day regarding the trip.
“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 Putin in a previous meeting.

A US State Department report on religious freedom criticized Iran, Jordan, Egypt and Qatar for their prevalent state-sponsored and state-promoted anti-Semitism.
The US Department of State released last week its annual report on religious freedom in the world, which shows persistent levels of deep-rooted anti-Semitism in the Middle East, including two neighboring Arab countries with whom Israel has peace treaties.
The main sources of persecution vary among countries, with Iran spearheading the group of regime-driven incitement against the Jewish people, while Jordan, Egypt and Qatar face criticism in the report for allowing the widespread expression of anti-Semitic sentiments in private and state-owned media with impunity.

Japan minister sees unity with Trump, wants pressure on N. Korea

Japan minister sees unity with Trump, wants pressure on N. KoreaJapanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono (AP/Shizuo Kambayashi)
Print Email 4 Comments
“Things have never been easier. We can have solid talks,” Japan’s foreign minister said about the Trump administration, adding that what is needed now is increased pressure on North Korea.
Japan’s new foreign minister is a reputed renegade, famous for bashing his ruling party’s policies with stands against nuclear power and for stricter checks on foreign aid.
Taro Kono, appointed earlier this month, said he won’t abandon his pet issues, but will make sure to send a united message when representing his country to the outside world.
In comments to reporters Tuesday at the Foreign Ministry, Kono was the mark of diplomacy when referring to Japan’s relations with the U.S., its most important ally.
He said he saw no divisions or confusion in the administration of President Donald Trump in his recent talks with officials, including Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Ambassador to Japan William Hagerty.
“Things have never been easier,” he said. “We can have solid talks.”
When asked about how some observers found Washington divided and confusing, Kono acknowledged that some changes were inevitable simply because Trump is a Republican, unlike his predecessor, Barack Obama.
But he said the basics of Japan’s relationship with the U.S. have remained the same, and such solidarity was important given the crisis over North Korea‘s nuclear and missile programs.
Kono, who has always tended to take a tough stand on North Korea, said continued pressure, not dialogue, is what is needed now to get it to abandon its nuclear weapons program.
Rhetoric between Washington and North Korea has heated up since the North’s two intercontinental ballistic missile tests last month. Some Japanese worry that regional tensions may escalate and that North Korean missiles may fly over Japan because of the North’s threat to launch missiles into waters near Guam.

Israel arrests Palestinian for inciting violence and terrorism on Facebook
August 21, 2017

Israel again takes action against a Palestinian using social media as a weapon.

Israeli police arrested a Palestinian over allegations that he incited violence and terrorism and expressed support for the Islamic State (ISIS) terror group on Facebook, an Israeli police spokesperson announced.

Police spokeswoman Luba Samri stated on Sunday that the suspect, in his 40s from the Hebron area, was detained last Friday and was remanded on Sunday.

She said the case was opened several months ago after Israeli police monitored posts which he shared on his Facebook page expressing support of ISIS and its activities, including videos depicting executions carried out by the group.

She added that the suspect had been sharing such posts from 2015 until the present, and that he was detained “due to the seriousness and danger of posts that incite violence and terrorism.”

She said the investigation was ongoing.

Israel has recognized the threat emanating from incitement to terrorism spread on Facebook and has successfully acted against those who use social media as a weapon, helping to reduce a trend of attacks against Israelis.

Israel’s Haaretz reported in April that Israeli forces have detained at least 400 Palestinians in less than a year over incitement on social media.

Speaking in July 2016, Israel’s Minister of Internal Security Gilad Erdan slammed Facebook and its CEO Mark Zuckerberg for what he said was their partial responsibility for the wave of Palestinian terror attacks, which is fanned by incitement posted on Facebook and other social media outlets.

Erdan said that “part of the blood of the murdered is on Facebook’s hands,” and demanded that the social media network take action to combat the phenomenon.

“Facebook has become a monster,” the Israeli minister charged. “The discourse of the younger [Palestinian] generation on the web, all the incitement and lies, it all occurs on this platform. I am in support of Mr. Zuckerberg conducting self-monitoring.”

The Israeli prime minister publicly condemned anti-Semitism and racism three days after the Charlottesville car-ramming attack in which a neo-Nazi killed a young woman and wounded several others.
Taking to Twitter on Tuesday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu communicated his dismay about the hate rallies and violence in Virginia three days earlier, which ended with several people wounded and the death of a 32-year-old counter-protester. “Outraged by expressions of antisemitism, neo-Nazism and racism,” Netanyahu declared via his “PM of Israel” Twitter account. “Everyone should oppose this hatred,” he added.
While race had been a primary focus of the Charlottesville rally on Saturday, organized by a patchwork of “white nationalist” groups, including neo-Nazis and even Klansmen, the demonstrators’ chants devolved into anti-Semitic tropes at various points.

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin expressed his “support and solidarity” in a letter to Malcolm Hoenlein, executive vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations and the wider American Jewish community.
“The very idea that in our time we would see a Nazi flag – perhaps the most vicious symbol of anti-Semitism – paraded in the streets of the world’s greatest democracy, and Israel’s most cherished and greatest ally is almost beyond belief,” Rivlin wrote in the missive.
“We have seen manifestations of anti-Semitism again and again arise across the world; in Europe and the Middle East. In the face of such evil, we stand now as we did then….With faith in humanity, with faith in democracy, and with faith in justice. I know that the great nation of the United States of America and its leaders will know how to face this difficult challenge, and prove to the world the robustness and strength of democracy and freedom.”

MK Yehudah Glick Sets Up Camp in Front of Temple Mount to Protest Netanyahu’s Ban [WATCH]
By Abra Forman August 14, 2017 , 11:30 am
0Share 0Email 0Share
“In the days to come, The Mount of Hashem’s House shall stand Firm above the mountains; And it shall tower above the hills. The peoples shall gaze on it with joy.” Micah 4:1 (The Israel Bible™)
Rabbi Yehudah Glick. (Photo: TMHF)
On Monday, Member of Knesset (MK) Yehudah Glick defiantly set up his office outside the entrance to the Temple Mount for a day in order to protest Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s ongoing ban against MKs visiting the holy site.

“The Temple Mount is a place that is open free to everyone – Jews, Christians and Muslims. Only MKs are not allowed up on the mount,” Glick, a member of Netanyahu’s own party, the Likud, told Breaking Israel News. “It is against the law – illegal and absurd.”

Netanyahu instated the ban nearly two years ago during a rise in deadly violence and terror around the country in an attempt to avoid “provocations” and to de-escalate tensions surrounding the Temple Mount and the Old City.

Since then, Glick said, the prime minister promised several times to cancel his mandate against MKs going up on the mount – after Passover, after Ramadan and then again at the end of July. But each time, Netanyahu extended the mandate instead.

“Enough is enough,” Glick said with a closed fist. “I am not going to go through another series of holidays not being able to go on the Temple Mount. The time has come to change this decision.”

Glick, a leading advocate for equal right to prayer on the Mount (currently, only Muslims are permitted to pray), temporarily moved his office to the gate through which Jewish paratroopers famously entered in 1967 to reclaim the Mount. It is the site where the Lt. Gen Motta Gur uttered the iconic statement, “The Temple Mount is in our hands.”

“Going up on the Temple Mount is important for every Jew. It is the only place in the world that a Jew is obligated to go to, it is the place upon which the Divine presence rests,” declared Glick.

He believes the ban also carries an important message which weakens Israel’s position in Jerusalem. Netanyahu’s move to forbid MKs to go up on the Mount indicates that the Temple Mount is not “truly” under Israeli sovereignty, he explained to Breaking Israel News.

He added that the Knesset symbolizes Israeli sovereignty more than anything else.

“I cannot tolerate [the situation] anymore,” said Glick. “It is quite absurd.”

The MK said today’s protest is a first in a series of acts he plans to hold to push the prime minister to decide in his favor. Though he would not reveal his next steps, Glick said he and his followers would not stop until the issue rises to the top of the prime minister’s agenda and, ultimately, is reversed.

Glick’s decision to make a stand at the Temple Mount has a personal element as well. His wife Yaffa, who in years past joined him in his crusade for Jewish rights on the Mount, recently suffered a serious stroke, and is currently being cared for in a long-term nursing facility in Jerusalem. The lawmaker shared that during this personal crisis, the Temple Mount is the only place he would like to go to pour out his heart.

Major Upcoming Solar Eclipse Holds Divine Moral Warning for America: Rabbi
https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/93188/major-solar-eclipse-recalling-egyptian-plague-darkness-divine-message-us/?By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz August 14, 2017 , 12:30 pm
“And in that day —declares my God— I will make the sun set at noon, I will darken the earth on a sunny day.” Amos 8:9 (The Israel Bible™)

The Biblical plague of darkness will be dramatically replayed next week when a rare solar eclipse transits across the full width of the United States. This astronomical phenomenon, unique in the entire solar system, is described in ancient Jewish sources which one rabbi interprets as a divine warning specifically targeting the United States.

On August 21, a total solar eclipse will mark a trail from the Northwest US to the Southeast Atlantic Seaboard. The eclipse will occur on the last day of the Hebrew month Av, a day known as Yom Kippur Katan, the “small day of repentance.” The morning after the eclipse, Jews will begin blowing the shofar every morning for a 40-day period of profound repentance leading up to Yom Kippur. This corresponds to the 40 days Moses was on Mount Sinai atoning for the Jewish people.

The upcoming eclipse is exceedingly rare and viewed from a larger perspective, the heavenly bodies are creating a picture that clearly has divine import. Though it has been 99 years since an eclipse travelled the length and breadth of the US, the next such occurrence will be in just seven years. On April 8, 2024, another total solar eclipse will transverse North America, but the visible path will go in the opposite direction, passing from the Northeast to the Southwest.

The paths of the two eclipses form a transcontinental ‘X’. In a strange coincidence, the only spot in the path of both eclipses, receiving a double-dose of this modern plague of darkness, and the point of the longest duration for both eclipses, is a part of southern Illinois known, appropriately enough, as Little Egypt.

Just as the original plague of darkness was meant as a warning to Egypt, Rabbi Lazar Brody, an American-born Hasidic rabbi and teacher, understands this present-day manifestation to be a divine message.

“In Kabbalah (Jewish mysticism), the sun represents the nations of the world, and the moon represents Israel,” Rabbi Brody told Breaking Israel News. “This eclipse is only over the United States. That is a shout from above, saying, ‘America, get your act together, Come back to the Almighty and cast away all your legalization of what the Torah calls abominations’.”

Rabbi Brody explained that the message implicit in an eclipse is that God’s light has not been extinguished.

“Through man’s actions, God’s influence in the world is being hidden in a state of hester panim (hiding God’s face),” Rabbi Brody explained.

Rabbi Brody quoted the Talmud (Succah 29a) which states that if an eclipse appeared in the West, it is a sign that idol worship has prevailed.

“Idol worship isn’t only bowing down to idols. In the US, there are people who worship homosexuality and perversion, one of the reasons the Talmud states for a solar eclipse.”

The divine significance of the event is emphasized by the fact that as far as scientists can discern, solar eclipses are unique to planet Earth. Ira Machefsky, an amateur astronomer with 60 years of experience, explained this unlikely confluence of circumstances.

“The moon is 400 times smaller than the sun but they appear to be the same size in the sky,” Machefsky explained to Breaking Israel News. “But the moon almost precisely blocks out the sun when it passes between the sun and the earth. This is because the sun is approximately 400 times further away from the earth than the moon.”

Though a man of science, Machefsky sees the Hand of God in this unique placement of the sun and moon.

Total solar eclipse
“No other planet in our solar system has solar eclipses because the odds of this happening precisely as it does on Earth are so infinitesimally small,” Machefsky explained. “Scientists have yet to discover another planet that has solar eclipses. They call this Earth’s ‘grand coincidence’, but I call it ‘the causal proof of the existence of God’.”

Machefsky explained that the moon is moving away from the Earth at the rate of one centimeter every year, and in the future, the moon will appear smaller in the sky, making solar eclipses a thing of the past.

“Eventually, there won’t be solar eclipses,” Machefsky said. “This unique phenomenon will disappear from the universe.”

Though the nation of Israel is unaffected by the upcoming solar eclipse, spiritually and celestially, stargazers in Israel were treated to a partial lunar eclipse just one week ago. Since the moon is the heavenly body that represents Israel, Rabbi Brody understood that as bearing a message for the Jews.

“This lunar eclipse said to me that there is a blemish in the faith of the Jews,” Rabbi Brody said. “And I am not talking about the non-religious. The religious Jews need to repent even more. Faith and mitzvot (Torah commandments) lift us above the stars. When we cling to Hashem above, we don’t have to worry about what’s happening in the world below.

“But when Jews cling to the ways of the American lifestyle,” Rabbi Brody warned, “We lose that connection with Hashem (God).”

Netanyahu blasts minister for ‘undermining’ him amid corruption scandal

Netanyahu blasts minister for ‘undermining’ him amid corruption scandalPM Benjamin Netanyahu (Hillel Maier/TPS)
Netanyahu went on the offensive, accusing his transportation minister of planning to replace him should he be forced to resign.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu went on the offensive Tuesday, attacking a senior cabinet member, assumed to be Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz, for “undermining him”, and allegedly planning to replace him should he be forced to resign amidst multiple corruption scandals.
“He can continue to make plans for replacing me all he wants,” Netanyahu said. “We’ve heard about a ‘senior Likud minister’. Let him go on making plans. You all know who it is. Can we say his name out loud yet? Where’s the shame in saying his name?!”
Public broadcaster Kan said Netanyahu had reportedly told party activists that political elements to his right are trying to topple his government before adding “I don’t know what they want from me.”
“I don’t see there is any problem here,” Netanyahu said. “We are talking about bribery and breach of trust with respect to Case 2000 (the accusation that he colluded with Yedioth Aharonot publisher to promote legislation to close the Yisrael Hayom newspaper, a pro-Netanyahu competitor to Yediot, in exchange for favorable coverage).
“There are 40 people who voted in favor of a bill to close the newspaper Yisrael Hayom and they are accusing me of bribery and breach of trust? Is anyone investigating them? What led them to propose this law?” Netanyahu declared.

Jordanian king’s rare trip to Ramallah seen as warning to Israel

Abdullah’s visit to the PA – his first since December 2012 – signals that Amman is siding with Ramallah on the Temple Mount crisis and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Jordan’s king flew by helicopter to Ramallah on Monday — a rare and brief visit seen as a signal to Israel that he is closing ranks with the Palestinians on key issues, most notably the Temple Mount crisis.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Abdullah II met for about two hours, after a red-carpet welcome for the monarch at the Palestinian government compound in Ramallah.
The two leaders discussed the recent showdown with Israel over the Mount – administered by the Jordanian Muslim Trust since Israel captured the Old City of Jerusalem in June 1967 – including confronting alleged Israeli attempts to expand its role there, said Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad Malki.

Ambassador Haley challenged the UN chief’s demand that Israel “stop violations of Lebanese airspace,” which essentially equated Israeli defense measures with Hezbollah terror strategies.

US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley did not mince words in her response to demands by the world body that Israel cease its military operations against the Hezbollah terror army, which operates on its border with Lebanon. Specifically, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said, “Israel must withdraw its forces from Lebanese territory and stop violations of Lebanese airspace.”
Guterres was apparently referring to Israel’s defensive measures, necessitated by the free reign Hezbollah had been given by Lebanon and the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), which was assembled “to confirm Israeli withdrawal from Lebanon” and “monitor the cessation of hostilities.”
Guterres’ comments are in line with the UN’s historically anti-Israel posture and its record of singling out the tiny Jewish state for censure, criticism, and generally unequal treatment.

Al Jazeera booted from Israel for supporting terror

After accusations of inciting terror in Israel during the Temple Mount crisis, the Qatari-controlled network now finds itself booted from the Jewish state.
On Sunday, Israeli Communications Minister Ayoub Kara announced an official request to revoke the credentials of Al Jazeera journalists in Israel and to shutter the company’s Jerusalem headquarters.
The move was prompted in large part by Al Jazeera’s dubious coverage of the events surrounding the recent Temple Mount crisis, which was initially sparked by three Arab terrorists who murdered in cold blood two Israeli policemen on duty at the holy site. After the Israeli government installed much-needed security measures on the Temple Mount compound, where the terrorists had stashed their weapons in the Al-Aqsa Mosque prior to the attack, massive rioting and violence by Palestinians ensued.
Most tragically, a Palestinian terrorist barged into the home of the Salomon family on Sabbath eve and stabbed to death three family members who had gathered to celebrate the birth of a baby boy.

In bizarre twist, Palestinians demand Jordan reopen Israeli embassy

In a rare instance of aligned Israeli-Palestinian interests, Palestinian leaders are lobbying Jordan to reopen the Israeli embassy in Amman.
In a bizarre twist to what began as a tense diplomatic standoff between Israel and Jordan, Palestinians are demanding that King Abdullah II reopen the Israeli embassy in Amman. The Israeli government office has been closed since the end of July, when an Israeli security guard killed a Jordanian terrorist attempting a stabbing attack with a screwdriver.
After initially refusing to release the security guard, whose name Jordanians later leaked in a transparent to attempt to facilitate revenge by vigilantes, the 28-year-old Israeli was permitted to return to his homeland. When the guard received a warm welcome from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Jordanians demanded a full criminal investigation into the incident, refusing to permit Israeli embassy employees to return without a trial for the guard.
The diplomatic shutdown in Amman apparently had unintended consequences, however, with hundreds of passports stuck in limbo in the shuttered Israeli embassy. According to Israel Hayom, the passports belong either to Jordanian citizens of Palestinian origin or businessmen connected with the Jordanian royal family.
These individuals are seeking Israeli entry permits to visit family or to close deals but can’t travel anywhere outside the Hashemite kingdom without their passports.

Analysis: Al Jazeera – the terrorist propaganda network
August 7, 2017
Analysis: Al Jazeera – the terrorist propaganda networkAl Jazeera bureau, Jerusalem (Hillel Maier/TPS)
Networks have their biases. But none comes close to Al Jazeera‘s persistent role as the biggest promoter of terrorist propaganda.
By John Rossomando, The Algemeiner
Al Jazeera‘s support for terrorism goes far beyond on-air cheerleading. Many of its employees have actively supported Al Qaeda, Hamas and other terrorist groups. In fact, concerns over the network’s consistent pro-terrorist positions prompted several Gulf States to demand that Qatar shut the network down in June.
Sheikh Said Bin Ahmed Al-Thani, director of Qatar’s government information office, called such demands “a condescending view [that] demonstrates contempt for the intelligence and judgment of the people of the Middle East, who overwhelmingly choose to get their news from Al Jazeera rather than from their state-run broadcasters,” in Newsweek.
But a week earlier, United Arab Emirates Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash detailed Al Jazeera‘s connections to terrorists and terror incitement in a letter to the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights. Al Jazeera constantly violates a 2005 UN Security Council resolution that calls on member states to counter “incitement of terrorist acts motivated by extremism,” Gargash charged.

Report: Arab League undermines Israel’s bid for Security Council seat

By: Barney Breen-Portnoy/The Algemeiner
The Arab League is working to undermine Israel’s bid to win a seat on the United Nations Security Council next year, the Hebrew news site Walla reported on Sunday, citing an unnamed Israeli diplomatic official.
The official said Israel was “concerned” by the Arab League’s activities and would take steps to counter them.
Israel is the only country in the Middle East never to have held a Security Council seat. The 10 non-permanent spots — which are two-year terms — on the 15-member council (the five permanent members are the US, UK, France, Russia and China, all of which have veto power) are allocated in accordance with regional blocs.
Since 2000, Israel has been part of the Western European and Others Group (WEOG).
The elections for the 2019-2020 term will be held in June 2018. To get a Security Council seat, Israel will have to receive the support of at least two-thirds of the 193 members of the General Assembly.
Israel’s competitors for the WEOG seats are Belgium and Germany.

US Senate advances bill to stop ‘sick’ Palestinian terror salaries

Congressmen unequivocally condemn official Palestinian salary-for-terror policy, as the Taylor Force Act passes a key hurdle.
By: Ben Cohen, The Algemeiner
US lawmakers denounced on Thursday the Palestinian Authority’s “sick” policy of paying salaries to terrorists and their families after the Senate Foreign Relations Committee passed the Taylor Force Act — which conditions $300 million of annual aid from the US on the PA ending the policy.
The committee approved the act by a 17-4 vote on Thursday morning, Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN), the committee’s chairman, announced.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said the principal aim of the bill, which will now return to the Senate for a vote during the fall session, was to prevent the PA from providing financial incentives for acts of terrorism.
“If you’re a young Palestinian, maybe the best thing you can do for your family in terms of income is to become a terrorist,” Graham said. “That’s sick.”
The act is named in memory of Taylor Force — a former US Army officer and veteran of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars who was murdered in Tel Aviv in a Palestinian stabbing attack in March 2016. The 28-year-old Force, a Vanderbilt University graduate student, had been visiting Israel as part of a school-organized spring break trip.
“This is a big day for the Taylor Force family,” Graham said at a press briefing following the vote. “This bill will cut off all funding to the PA until they change their laws which reward terrorism, which reward people for killing a young man like Taylor Force. I don’t want his death to be in vain.”
Corker said that the legislation “will force the Palestinian Authority to make a choice: either face the consequences of stoking violence or end this detestable practice immediately.”
Corker added that interviews with several Palestinian prisoners had shown that part of their motive for engaging in terror was to “ensure that they did something egregious enough to at least get a five-year sentence, where the payment is stepped up.”
“That’s sick. That’s sick,” Corker emphasized.

By Steve K. Walz, Exclusive to World Israel News
It makes no difference whether you are the “First Lady” of prime-time TV or the iconic “King of Hard Rock,” Israeli hotels in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem treat every one of their VIP guests like royalty, which is why a growing number of Hollywood TV stars and rock legends are coming back to the Holy Land for “private visits” sans the hoopla.Am
During the past five years, Israeli music business entrepreneurs and American Jewish organizations alike have invested substantial sums of money to bring some of the biggest names in the music world and Hollywood to the Holy Land. In the case of the musical stars, it’s business mixed with pleasure. With the Hollywood celebs, Jewish organizations such as America’s Voices in Israel in tandem with various Israeli government ministry’s, underwrite the cost of their visit within the context of seeing and experiencing the “other Israel.”
Five star hotels such as the Dan Tel Aviv and David InterContinental in Tel Aviv, along with the Inbal, Mamilla and King David Hotels in Jerusalem are only too happy to host both the rock stars and Hollywood celebs.

Police arrested another 15 suspects in connection with last week’s rioting in Jerusalem. 
Israeli forces arrested 15 Palestinians in several Jerusalem neighborhoods late Wednesday night, as Israeli forces continued to crack down on Palestinians who participated in the riots surrounding the Temple Mount.
Earlier in the week, Israeli forces netted 33 Palestinians in Jerusalem for leading and instigating the violent incidents, bringing the number of Palestinians detained this week to 48.
Israeli police spokesperson Luba Samri said that the Palestinians were detained over “violence and disturbing the order in Jerusalem,” which included rock-throwing and blocking roads.
She added that some were also detained for setting fire to trash cans, throwing Molotov cocktails and shooting fireworks at Israeli forces during the clashes.
These violent actions “put the lives of others at risk and caused injuries to a number of police officers,” Samri added.
Meanwhile, Samri said that Israeli authorities had also extended the remands of 31 of the 33 Palestinians arrested during earlier raids.

Israel’s first-ever single malt whisky goes on sale

Israel’s first-ever single malt whisky goes on saleM&H single-malt whisky (Facebook)
 Print  Email  4 Comments
The Milk & Honey Distillery has put the first-ever single malt whisky produced in Israel on an online auction.
Israel’s first whisky distillery is chalking up a new achievement with the first international auction of an alcoholic beverage produced in Israel.
The first bottles will be sold at the whiskyauctioneer.com international online public auction, which begins August 11 and runs for a period of 10 days, as a special edition (1-100) of the “experimental series” for the first-ever single malt whisky produced and bottled in Israel.
The whisky is kosher. The distillery is very strict about the kosher certification of its products, ingredients and process, and its employees do not work on the Sabbath.
The Milk & Honey Distillery was founded in Tel Aviv, the first modern Hebrew city, in order to produce the first Israeli whisky, and it embodies the Israeli pioneer and entrepreneurial spirit.
After a three-year aging process in barrels, the product falls under the definition of whisky in Scotland and most countries around the globe.
Distillation of the barrel was done at the distillery’s early stages, ahead of the move to its new location in south Tel Aviv as well as before the current industrial equipment was purchased and the crowdfunding campaign was launched on Indiegogo.
International Expert Served as Consultant
The barrel was distilled in January 2014 at a kibbutz in the Sharon region by head distiller Tomer Goren together with the late master distiller Dr. Jim Swan, as part of his role as consultant to the distillery at the time. Swan, who passed away at the beginning of February 2017, never had the opportunity to taste his first Israeli masterpiece. Swan was considered an international expert on the production of whisky in warm climates and served as a consultant to leading distilleries around the world.

Netanyahu, Liberman call for IDF ‘Hebron Shooter’ to be pardoned

Netanyahu, Liberman call for IDF ‘Hebron Shooter’ to be pardonedConvicted IDF soldier Elor Azaria and his father Charlie leave the Tel Aviv military court after his unsuccessful appeal. (Flash90)
 Print  Email  224 Comments
Netanyahu and Liberman, supported by the right, are calling for Elor Azaria, an IDF soldier who shot a neutralized terrorist, to be pardoned.
In March 2016, Elor Azaria, a combat medic stationed in Hebron, fired a fatal shot at a neutralized terrorist as he lay wounded on the ground after committing a stabbing attack against the soldier’s colleagues.
Azaria was sentenced in February to 18 months in prison after being found guilty of manslaughter. An Israeli military court in Tel Aviv on Sunday rejected his appeal, in which the defense maintained he felt his life was in danger, saying he thought the terrorist could have been carrying a bomb on his body.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, supported by politicians on the right, are calling for the soldier to be pardoned.
“My opinion has not changed on the question of granting a pardon to Elor Azaria, as I expressed it after the [January] conviction,” the prime minister tweeted as soon as the appeal was rejected. “When the subject comes up [in the context of pardon deliberations], I will offer my recommendation for a pardon to the relevant authorities.”

While covering the funeral of an Arab killed fleeing a crime scene, an Israeli reporter and cameraman became the victims of an Arab mob’s rage.
In a horrific attack during an Arab funeral procession, two Israelis found themselves at the center of what they could only subsequently describe as a “lynch mob.” The two Israelis, reporter Gilad Shalmor and photographer Gal Zeitman of Israel’s Channel 2, received a savage beating after arriving in Jaffa to document the funeral of a young Arab who was killed by police as he fled a crime scene over the weekend.
The reporter and cameraman made their way to the center of the procession, which involved aggressive shouts of “Allahu akbar.” Before Shalmor and Zeitman knew what was happening, a group of Arabs surrounded them and began kicking and punching them until they fell to the ground.
According to a report by Arutz Sheva, Zeitman posted his painful account on Facebook, detailing the ordeal and the sense of panic he and his co-worker experienced as they realized none of the other attendees had any intention of helping them escape the bloodthirsty mob.
Shalmor also took to social media, posting his own account of the events

A mass anti-Israel rally in Turkey showcased a disturbing soundtrack, including a theme song instructing listeners to “hit, hit Zionists.”
Tens of thousands of people gathered in Turkey to denounce Israel following its introduction of security measures at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, which led to widespread Palestinian violence.
Protesters waved Turkish and Palestinian flags Sunday at the “Great Jerusalem Meeting” in Istanbul’s Yenikapi Square, called by the Islamist Felicity Party. Revelers were serenaded with a jingle that included the lyrics, “Hit, hit Zionists.” One banner proudly waved at the event read, “Down with USA-Israel.”
The Islamist party leader, Temel Karamollaoglu, told the crowd that Muslims would not give up on Jerusalem.
The Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH), which has been linked to terrorism, also sponsored the event

Police arrested 33 Arabs in connections with last week’s rioting in Jerusalem. 
Israeli police conducted a massive counter-terrorism operation in Jerusalem on Sunday night and arrested 33 Arab residents of the city in connection with the riots that rocked the capital last week.
The suspects allegedly took part in the week-long violence in Jerusalem, blocking roads, hurling rocks and firebombs at police and disturbing the peace.
Several policemen were wounded during the violent clashes, while three rioters were killed and dozens were wounded.
Seven of the suspects are minors, the youngest aged 13.
The police said they were able to apprehend the “hard core” of the rioters.
Using footage of the riots, surveillance and intelligence, police were able to identify and arrest the main instigators.
The riots erupted when Israel placed new security measures on the Temple Mount after three terrorists murdered two Israeli policemen at the site.

By: Ben Cohen/The Algemeiner
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s spokesperson for the Arab media reported on Sunday that he had received several messages on social media from Iraqi citizens expressing support for Israel during the violent Palestinian campaign to end the Jewish state’s control of access to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
“I received quite a few messages of support for Israel from Iraqis who condemned Palestinian terrorism because they suffered from it as well,” tweeted Ofir Gendelman, who represents the prime minister’s office in contacts with Arabic-language media.
Gendelman’s post was accompanied by photos of the messages of solidarity in Arabic with Iraqi passports placed alongside them, as proof of origin.

Palestinians Waste Half of Foreign Aid on Terror Payments
Jul 31, 2017
Hundreds of millions of foreign aid dollars to the Palestinians are used by their government to finance and promote terrorism. 
The Palestinian Authority (PA) has significantly increased its spending on salaries to terrorists serving time in Israeli prisons and to families of terrorist “martyrs” – those killed while committing acts of terror against Israel. These payments consume half of the foreign aid received by the PA.
According to the PA’s own budget, salaries to incarcerated and released terrorists will amount to 552 million shekels ($153.4 million) in 2017, a 13 percent rise over the 2016 proposed budget and 11 percent more than actual expenditures in 2016.
The money will be transferred to the Palestinian National Fund, the financial arm of the PLO, which was designated by Israel as a terror organization due to its involvement in paying terrorist salaries.
Altogether, the expenditures for supporting terror in the 2017 PA budget are 1.24 billion shekels ($344 million).
A report by the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs shows that this sum constitutes 7 percent of the total budget, similar to the last several years, but amounts to 49.6 percent of foreign aid received by the PA due to the diminishing amount of external aid expected in 2017.

Netanyahu supports bill annexing surrounding towns into Greater Jerusalem
 July 27, 2017
Netanyahu supports bill annexing surrounding towns into Greater JerusalemPM Netanyahu (Ohad Zweigenberg/POOL)
A bill strengthening Jerusalem and its environs has received Netanyahu’s support. 
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday expressed his support for a legislation bill that calls for the incorporation of towns surrounding Jerusalem into the Israeli capital, essentially annexing them to Israel in the process.
The Greater Jerusalem Law, proposed by Member of Knesset (MK) Yoav Kisch, would incorporate Givat Ze’ev to the northwest of Jerusalem as well Beitar Illit and the Etzion bloc of communities, which are situated southwest of Jerusalem, and Ma’aleh Adumim, to Jerusalem’s municipal boundaries – thus creating a greater metropolitan area and, in effect, annexing those Israel communities, which serve as home to some 150,000 Israelis.
The bill also proposes turning Arab villages in the area that lie outside the security barrier into an independent municipality within Greater Jerusalem.

Survey: 77% of Israelis oppose removing Temple Mount metal detectors

Survey: 77% of Israelis oppose removing Temple Mount metal detectorsMetal detectors outside Temple Mount (Yonatan 
Almost four out of five Israelis disagree with removal of metal detectors from the entrances to the Temple Mount, a recent survey finds. 
The Israeli public, by an overwhelming margin, is disappointed with the Security Cabinet’s decision to remove metal detectors from the various entrances to Jerusalem’s Temple Mount, according to a survey originally reported by Israel’s Channel 2. 
The survey, conducted by the online psychology website Midgam and Israeli internet panel and digital data collection agency iPanel, reveals that 77 percent of respondents believe that the decision to remove the metal detectors was a form of capitulation on Israel’s part. Seventeen percent disagreed with such an assertion.
The metal detectors were placed at the entrances of the Temple Mount after two Israeli police officers were shot and killed at the site by Muslim terrorists who used weapons previously stashed at the mosque compound. Subsequently, Palestinians rioted in protest of the new security measures, and the Palestinian Authority suspended “all ties” with Israel.

Israel has dismissed Erdogan’s accusations against the Jewish state regarding the Temple Mount crisis as well as his call to Muslims for Holy War.
Israel dismissed and even ridiculed accusations leveled by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who claimed Israel was exploiting the fight against terrorism as a pretext for taking over the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
Speaking to lawmakers of his AKP Party on Tuesday, Erdogan welcomed Israel’s removal of the metal detectors, but said Turkey would not accept measures that treat Muslims wanting to pray as “terrorists.”
Israel has removed the new metal detectors in an attempt to deescalate the tensions surrounding the issue. However, it has plans to install a network of smart cameras to meet the security requirements at the site.

Muslim worshipers on Wednesday morning continued their boycott of the Temple Mount and once again held their morning prayers outside the holy site, despite Israel’s removal of the metal detectors that sparked the latest round of violent protests.
The morning prayers were preceded by Palestinian riots around the Old City of Jerusalem on Tuesday night.
Wednesday’s prayers came a day after Israel seemingly capitulated to the weeklong Palestinian violence and removed the security measures installed at the site after Arab terrorists shot and killed two Israeli police officers at the compound.

Two senior ministers are demanding that the terrorist who slaughtered three civilians in their home in Samaria be put to death.  
Minister of Education and Diaspora Affairs Naftali Bennett, chairman of the Jewish Home party, has called on the IDF’s prosecution to demand the death penalty for Omar al-Abed, the Palestinian terrorist who butchered three family members in their home on Friday night.
Minister of Defense Avigdor Liberman concurred with Bennett’s call to have al-Abed executed.
“The option of the death penalty exists in military courts. There is no need for special legislation; only a request [for it in court]. I call on the military prosecution to demand the death penalty for the terrorist who murdered the Salomon family,” Bennett stated after visiting the family’s home.
“In such an extreme case, there is indeed room to impose the death penalty and that is within the jurisdiction of the Judea and Samaria military courts,” Liberman told Ynet  on Sunday. Liberman has long supported the death penalty for Palestinian terrorists.

US State Dept Slammed for Blaming Israel for Palestinian Terror
B’nai B’rith International slammed a US State Department report blaming Israel for Palestinian Arab terror and violence, JTA reported.
Last Thursday, B’nai B’rith International harshly criticized the US State Department for releasing a report that largely blames Israel for Muslim aggression, according to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA).
“It is astonishing that [the Department of] State is parroting the false Palestinian narrative,” said B’nai B’rith in its statement.
“If it were not released by the State Department, it would be easy to mistake the inflammatory and accusatory language as coming directly from the Palestinians.”
The new US State Department report clearly blames Israel for Arab terrorism, citing a “lack of hope in achieving Palestinian statehood, Israeli settlement construction in the West Bank, settler violence against Palestinians in the West Bank, the perception that the Israeli government was changing the status quo on the Haram Al Sharif/Temple Mount, and IDF tactics that the Palestinians considered overly aggressive.”

Turkish President’s inflammatory rhetoric singles out Israeli security measures on the Temple Mount. 
Turkey’s President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, condemned Israeli security precautions at the Temple Mount, threatening that the Islamic world would not remain silent.
Erdogan addressed reporters Sunday in Istanbul before departing on a visit to Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar.
“No one can expect the Islamic world to remain unresponsive after the humiliation Muslims suffered with the restrictions at the Noble Sanctuary,” he stated.
Earlier last week, Israel installed metal detectors at the shrine following a deadly attack by Muslim terrorists there who killed two Israeli policemen.
Palestinians perceive the metal detectors as an encroachment on the rights of Muslims, who have blamed the security measures for their protests in various spots throughout the world.
Erdogan called on Israel to remove the detectors in a phone conversation with his counterpart Reuven Rivlin on Thursday.

After a terrorist murdered three family members in their home, preceded by the death of three Arabs who rioted against heightened security in Jerusalem, Guterres “call[ed] on all to refrain from any actions or words that could further escalate an already volatile situation.”
The countries that comprise the international Quartet say they are concerned about “escalating tensions and violent clashes” in and around the Old City of Jerusalem.
Envoys from Russia, the US, the European Union (EU) and the United Nations (UN) issued a statement Saturday saying they “strongly condemn acts of terror, express their regret for all loss of innocent life caused by the violence, and hope for a speedy recovery to the wounded.”
They called on all sides to show “maximum restraint, refrain from provocative actions and work towards de-escalating the situation.”
The envoys welcomed assurances by Israel’s prime minister that “the status quo at the holy sites in Jerusalem will be upheld nd respected.” And they encouraged Israel and Jordan to work together to uphold it.

Israel continues its efforts to counter Palestinian terrorism and violence.
Israeli security forces arrested 25 members of the Hamas terror group at various locations throughout Judea and Samaria over the weekend, part of their stepped-up counter-terrorism actions in the wake of escalated tension in the past week.
Israel augmented its forces in the Judea and Samaria region and placed them on high alert after the terror attack in Halamish on Friday night, in which a Palestinian terrorist murdered three family members in their home on the Jewish Sabbath.
On Saturday morning, IDF soldiers searched the terrorist’s family home in the village of Kobar and detained one of his brothers, the IDF said.
Soldiers searched the house and measured it in preparation for demolition. Anticipating this, local residents said the family emptied its home of valuables. Later, clashes erupted as residents burned tires and hurled rocks at Israeli troops who had searched the home. The military says about 50 people attacked troops who fired back with rubber bullets and tear gas.
The terror attack followed a day of violent Palestinian riots, which erupted over tensions at the Temple Mount. Three Palestinians were killed in street clashes.

It is incompatible with achieving peace and we must condemn it in the strongest terms, defeat it, and eradicate it.”
In the attack, three Arab terrorists emerged from the Temple Mount and killed two Israeli Druze police officers stationed nearby, prompting Israel’s closure of the holy site.

In actuality, it’s Israel that has removed any danger to the site, safeguarding it and allowing all faiths to pray there. Under Muslim rule, by contrast, Jews were forbidden to pass the seventh step on a staircase outside the Tomb.

Report alleges Saudi king secretly contacted Israel on Temple Mount crisis

Report alleges Saudi king secretly contacted Israel on Temple Mount crisisPresident Donald and First Lady Melania Trump and King Salman (AP/Evan Vucci)
 Print  Email  10 Comments
The Saudi monarch reportedly sent a message to the Jewish state via the US in an effort to solve the Temple Mount crisis.
On Tuesday, the London-based Arabic media outlet Elpah reported that the King of Saudi Arabia, Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud contacted Israel via the Americans in an effort to defuse the crisis following the terrorist murder of two Israelis on the Temple Mount. It was reportedly the Saudi king’s personal intervention via the White House that prompted Israel to reopen the Temple Mount to Muslim worshipers.
While Israel reopened the site just two days after the attack, the Palestinian Authority and the Jordanian Waqf, an Islamic Trust that Israel entrusted to oversee Temple Mount activities, incited raucous protests in response to necessary security measures such as metal detectors.
According to unnamed sources quoted in the Elpah report, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu informed the Saudis via the Trump Administration that the status quo remains on the Temple Mount. Israel’s neighbor Jordan was allegedly also involved in the communication process.
Saudi officials were reportedly invited by Israel’s Prime Minister to visit the al-Aksa Mosque in order to see for themselves that the status quo is maintained on the Temple Mount. Riyadh has so far not responded to the Israeli invitation.

Negotiations for Hamas-Israel prisoner exchange reach a standstillIsraeli captive Avera Mengistu (Social media)
Indirect negotiations between Hamas and Israel have reached a deadlock over Israel’s demand for proof that its captured citizens are indeed alive.
The Lebanese paper Al Akhbar reported that Israel had offered to free an unknown number of Arab minors, women and Hamas parliamentarians. In return, Israel wants live video documentation as evidence that Avera Mengistu, Jumaa Ibrahim Ghanima and Hisham Al Sayeed are still alive.
According to the Hezbollah-affiliated Al Akhbar, Hamas rejected Jerusalem’s offer. Gaza’s Islamist rulers reportedly demanded that Israel free 55 Palestinian prisoners as a precondition for releasing the requested video material. These prisoners were in fact released during the Shalit deal and later rearrested by Israel. IDF soldier Gilad Shalit, captured in 2006, was freed in 2011 in exchange for 1027 Palestinian prisoners.
Egypt is coordinating the talks between Israel and Hamas and has reportedly suggested that the deal include the release of the bodies of IDF soldiers Oren Shaul and Hadar Goldin, who were killed during the Gaza war in 2014. Hamas has so far refused to comply.

Official PA TV broadcast Abbas’s 2014 terror-inciting speech no fewer than 19 times over the past three days, in the wake of a terror attack by Israeli Arabs at the entrance to the Temple Mount.
The only way to put an end to the deadly rampage was to follow the armed terrorists as they fled to the Temple Mount. Yet PA TV repeatedly played Abbas’ order to prevent Jews from entering the area, essentially demanding that Israel not act to stop terror attacks.

Palestinian Authority (PA) head Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday was hosted by Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing, when he arrived for a three-day visit with the objective of building diplomatic and economic ties.
Abbas stressed the importance of the Chinese peace initiative, the “four-point proposal” put forward by Xi in 2013, which calls for achieving a two-state solution, the fostering of mutual security cooperation and peace through development.
Addressing the Chinese Academy of Governance in Beijing, Abbas said he was ready to cooperate with China on setting up the appropriate mechanisms to achieve the initiative, the Palestinian official WAFA news agency reported.

IDF fully exposes its massive humanitarian aid program for Syrian civilians

IDF fully exposes its massive humanitarian aid program for Syrian civiliansAn IDF soldier feeds a Syrian baby. (IDF)
The IDF exposed the full extent of its massive humanitarian aid to Syria, known as “Operation Good Neighbor.”
The IDF on Wednesday fully exposed for the first time the extent of its humanitarian aid to Syria, including the provision of lifesaving medication, dozens of tons of clothes and hundreds of thousands of liters of fuel and food, as part of “Operation Good Neighbor.”
The IDF mission began over four years ago, when an injured Syrian came to the border asking for medical help from the IDF. Back then, there was no policy, just a commander’s on-the-spot decision to provide care to an injured civilian. Since then, the aid has continued on a near-daily basis.
In June 2016, as part of a decision to expand humanitarian aid efforts, the IDF Northern Command established the headquarters of Operation Good Neighbor, an operation dedicated to Syria’s citizens in distress. The objective is to provide humanitarian aid to as many victims as possible, while delicately balancing this effort with Israel’s policy of non-involvement in the Syrian civil war, which has destroyed the country over the past six years.
The first activities coordinated by the headquarters took place in August 2016. Since then, there have been more than 110 aid operations of various kinds.
“Based on my 20-year medical career, I can truly say that the medical care we have provided to our neighbors here in the north of Israel is one of the most significant efforts to treat those in need that I have ever witnessed,” said Col. Dr. Noam Fink, Chief Medical Officer of the Northern Command. “I deeply hope that our contribution will have a direct impact on the lives of our Syrian neighbors.”

Israeli security forces eliminated a Palestinian terrorist who attacked them during an operation.
A Palestinian terrorist was shot and killed by IDF forces on Thursday in Gush Etzion as he attempted to stab them.
The troops, who were operating in the Palestinian village of Takua, were attacked by the knife-wielding Palestinian. They responded to the threat by shooting the terrorist dead.
No Israelis were wounded in the incident.
Palestinian sources named the terrorist as Mohamed Hussien Tanuh, 20.
Palestinians rioted at the spot of the incident after the attack, causing damage to Israeli vehicles passing near and subsequently forcing the police to shut down the route.
This attack comes just two days after a terrorist rammed his car into two IDF soldiers who were manning a checkpoint near the Palestinian town of Beit Anoun, in the Hebron area.
The two soldiers were lightly wounded, while the terrorist was shot dead.

US demands Hezbollah end weapon stockpiling
American UN ambassador Nikki Haley blasts Hezbollah for stockpiling arms and demands UN action to stop it.
On Wednesday, American UN Ambassador Nikki Haley slammed Hezbollah for stockpiling weapons in southern Lebanon that threaten the region, and Israel specifically. In a meeting with UN’s special Lebanon envoy Sigrid Kaag, Haley demanded that the UN halt Hezbollah’s destabilizing activities. The meeting took place before Thursday’s scheduled Security Council meeting concerning the UNIFIL peacekeeping force in southern Lebanon.
The US mission to the UN released a statement stressing the gravity of the situation in southern Lebanon. The statement explained, “Ambassador Haley expressed alarm over the build-up of weapons by Hezbollah, a situation that demands the international community’s attention to prevent the further escalation of regional tensions.”
Haley, who is supportive of the Jewish state, demanded stronger UN action to defuse Hezbollah’s arms buildup against Israel.

Senator John McCain, war hero and close friend of Israel,  has been diagnosed with a brain tumor.
Sen. John McCain, the 2008 Republican presidential nominee, Vietnam prisoner of war, political maverick in Congress for more than three decades and a close friend of the state of Israel, has been diagnosed with an aggressive type of brain tumor.
The 80-year-old Arizona lawmaker has glioblastoma, according to doctors at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, where McCain had a blood clot removed from above his left eye last Friday. He and his family are considering further treatment, including chemotherapy and radiation.
“Subsequent tissue pathology revealed that a primary brain tumor known as a glioblastoma was associated with the blood clot,” his office said in a statement late Wednesday.
The American Cancer Society puts the five-year survival rate for patients over 55 at about 4 percent.

Netanyahu unabashedly told the Irish foreign minister what he thinks of his country’s biased stance against Israel.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met on Tuesday in Jerusalem with Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney and chided him for his country’s consistent support for the Palestinians against Israel.
The Israeli leader, according to a statement released by the Prime Minister’s Office, “expressed his dissatisfaction over Ireland’s traditional stance and told the foreign minister that his country does not condemn Palestinians for incitement and for glorifying those who commit terrorist attacks.”
He also asked “why Ireland helps NGOs that call for the destruction of Israel,” the statement read.
For instance, Ireland supports Breaking the Silence (BtS), a radical left-wing NGO that publicizes anonymous testimonies allegedly given by of former IDF soldiers in order to harm the Israeli military.
Ireland, along with many European countries, ignores the main issue of the conflict, which is not the Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria or the “occupation,” but the Palestinians’ refusal to recognize the Jewish state, Netanyahu charged.

Israel denies committing to construction freeze in Judea and Samaria

Netanyahu’s office denies commitment was made to slow construction, a claim recently reported by Arab media.
As US President Donald Trump’s administration prepares to facilitate peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians, Arab media outlet Al-Hayat claimed that Israel had agreed to slow down construction in Judea and Samaria, reported Ynet News. According to Al-Hayat, Trump’s special advisor and Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt relayed to a Palestinian delegation that Israel would place constraints on construction during peace negotiations.
In response to these reports, Prime Minister Netanyahu’s office announced, “There is no such commitment.”
Greenblatt allegedly made the comments while meeting with the PLO Executive Committee, headed by Saeb Erekat. The meeting took place during Greenblatt’s “interim visit” this week, which serves as a precursor to Trump’s anticipated announcement of new peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.
Building Jewish homes in Judea and Samaria remains a point of contention for the Palestinians, who consistently seek to frame construction in that region as an obstacle to peace

Netanyahu clear front-runner in latest Israeli polls

Polls show Benjamin Netanyahu remains the top choice for Prime Minister of Israel.
While recent political coverage in Israel has been dominated by the Labor Party’s selection of a new leader, Avi Gabbay, polls suggest that Israelis prefer the sitting prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, and his party. Polls conducted by Channel 2 and Channel 10 showed Netanyahu and the Likud scoring a sizeable lead over Gabbay and Labor.
Of those polled by Channel 2, 34 percent preferred Netanyahu for prime minister, with 13 percent choosing Gabbay. Third and fourth place in the poll went to Yesh Atid’s Yair Lapid, with a nod from 12 percent of respondents, and Jewish Home’s Naftali Bennet receiving 6 percent.
In addition to gauging support for individual candidates, the polls also demonstrated that Netanyahu’s Likud party would garner more seats in the Knesset than the Zionist Union, the coalition with which Gabbay’s Labor Party is aligned, if the elections were held today.
Indeed, both polls showed Likud taking at least five more seats in the Israeli parliament than the Zionist Union. Channel 10’s poll showed Likud claiming 29 seats to Zionist Union’s 24, while Channel 2 projected Likud with 25 seats and Zionist Union with 20.

2 Arabs charged for aiding terrorists in murder of Israeli policewoman

2 Arabs charged for aiding terrorists in murder of Israeli policewomanStaff Sergeant Hadas Malka (Social media)
Two Arabs were charged with negligent homicide for their part in a recent terror attack in Jerusalem that resulted in the death of a young policewoman.
An Jerusalem Arab with Israeli citizenship and a Palestinian were charged Wednesday with negligent homicide for their part in the terror attack in the capital last month in which Policewoman Staff Sergeant Hadas Malka was murdered.
Arrested shortly after the attack, they are suspected of having illegally driven undocumented Palestinians into Jerusalem, including the terrorists.
“Anyone who drives illegal aliens into Israeli territory needs to know and expect that a terrorist may be among them, seeking to carry out an attack, meaning that on a certain level he is an accomplice to the terror attack and its severe consequences,” police said in a statement.“This is the third time that the police has been able to establish enough evidence to indict drivers of illegals with negligent homicide, after they illegally smuggled into Israel Palestinians who went on to carry out terror attacks,” the statement continued.  The police underscored that they “will reach anyone who was involved in any way, whether directly or indirectly, in terror attacks and will work to prosecute them to the full extent of the law.”
In related news, the IDF informed the family of one the terrorists on Tuesday that their home in Deir Abu Mash’al was slated for demolition. The family was given 72 hours to appeal the decision.
Malka was killed in late June during a double terror attack at the Damascus Gate at the entrance to the Old City.
In the first attack, two terrorists shot at a police patrol at the Damascus Gate and attempted to stab the officers. Both terrorists were shot dead by police.

Under attack, IDF forces kill 2 terrorists in Jenin gun battleIDF forces in action. (IDF)
IDF forces, responding to an attack, killed two Palestinian terrorists. 
IDF forces shot and killed two terrorists during a gunfight in the Palestinian city of Jenin early Wednesday morning.
The elite Maglan unit was conducting a counterterrorism operation in the city when they came under a barrage of gunfire and improvised explosive devices. The soldiers fired back, killing two combatants in the process.
Another two Palestinians were reportedly wounded in the battle. There were no Israeli casualties.
Palestinian sources named the dead assailants as 17-year-old Aws Muhammad Youssif Salamah and 20-year-old Saad Nasser Hassan Abd al-Fattah Salah.
The Palestinian Ma’an news agency reported that Salah’s brother is imprisoned in an Israeli jail and his father was permanently disabled after being shot by Israeli forces. The report, however, provided no information on the circumstances surrounding either case.
In related news, IDF forces arrested 21 Palestinians wanted in connection with terrorism at various locations throughout Judea and Samaria. Two are members of the Hamas terror organization.

The IDF caught two Palestinians red-handed with stolen Byzantine-era pillars from an ancient church.
Israeli authorities arrested two Palestinian thieves who attempted to steal artifacts from a Byzantine-era church in Judea and Samaria, the IDF said Monday.The suspects were apprehended near the Jewish community of Tekoa with three pillars from a Byzantine church in the back of their work truck. The pillars are inscribed with ancient pseudo-Greek script.
Following the arrests, the IDF Civil Administration’s archaeological unit underscored the need for continued action against the theft of antiquities.“We will continue in the war on the history of Judea and Samaria with operations against antiquities thieves, who damage archaeological sites,” said Benny Har, deputy head of the Civil Administration’s archaeological unit, The Times of Israel reported.In May, the Israel Police and the IDF recovered a hoard of Jewish antiquities during a raid on a home in the village of Beit Ula near Hebron. The items included dozens of ancient coins, oil lamps, jewelry and Jewish ritual objects.

Canada bans Israeli wines produced in ‘occupied territory’

Canada bans Israeli wines produced in ‘occupied territory’Psagot wines (Screenshot)
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency, a government body, has banned wines from Judea and Samaria because, it says, the label – Product of Israel – is “unacceptable” for wines produced in “occupied territory.”
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has ordered the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO) to prohibit vendors from selling wines produced in Judea and Samaria because they are labelled as products of Israel.
In a letter dated July 11, 2017, Vincent Caron, the LCBO’s senior policy adviser, informed vendors that the CFIA had instructed them on July 6 that “Product of Israel” – as these wines are labelled – “would not be an accepting country of origin declaration for wine products that have been made from grapes that are grown fermented, processed, blended and finished in the West Bank occupied territory.”

United Arab Emirates official blasts Al Jazeera’s anti-Semitism

United Arab Emirates official blasts Al Jazeera’s anti-Semitism(Screenshot)
Al Jazeera engages in anti-Semitism, discrimination and incitement to religious hatred, a senior Arab official says.  
A top official from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) recently accused the Qatari-run Al Jazeera satellite television station of engaging in anti-Semitism, discrimination and incitement to religious hatred.
Al Jazeera has “promoted anti-Semitic violence by broadcasting sermons by the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, Yusuf al-Qaradawi,” according to a letter released by Anwar Gargash, the UAE’s minister of state for foreign affairs.
Gargash added that Qaradawi had “praised Hitler, described the Holocaust as ‘divine punishment,’ and called on Allah to ‘take this oppressive, Jewish, Zionist band of people…and kill them, down to the very last one.’”
The UAE’s letter comes amid a wider dispute between Qatar and its Arab gulf state neighbors. Last month, Saudi Arabia and its Arab allies, including the UAE, cut ties with Qatar for its support for Islamic terrorism and its cooperation with Iran.
Shutting down Al Jazeera is among Arab gulf states’ demands for a restoration of relations with Qatar.

Israel, Palestinians ink historic water deal

A milestone agreement reached by Israel and the PA should have far-reaching benefits, particularly to the Palestinians, although it remains questionable whether it could help jumpstart peace negotiations.
Israeli and Palestinian negotiators announced a far-reaching agreement Thursday to provide the Palestinian Authority (PA) with 33 million cubic meters of water a year, as part of the Red Sea-Dead Sea Canal project.
At a press conference hosted by United States Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt, Israel’s Regional Cooperation Minister Tzachi Hanegbi and PA Water Authority Chairman Mazen Ghuneim, Greenblatt said the agreement, as well as a deal to open an electricity sub-station in Jenin, are examples of competing sides exhibiting a “pragmatic approach” to solving a regional issue together for the benefit of all sides.
“This agreement allows us to launch the Red-Dead project that is a crucial project for Jordan, Israel and the Palestinian Authority,” he said.
Hanegbi added that the deal “proves that water can serve as a means for reconciliation and cooperation.”

Leading American lawmakers expressed reservations about a law that could significantly curb Palestinian terrorism.
Senate Democratic and Republican lawmakers demonstrated consternation over the Taylor Force Act, legislation that would cut US economic aid to the Palestinian Authority (PA) if it continues to issue payments to terrorists and their families.
At a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing Wednesday, the committee’s chairman, Senator Bob Corker (R-TN), questioned the legislation’s “all or nothing” approach and suggested Israel would not necessarily support cutting funding to the PA due to fear of the PA being weakened.
Corker pointed to calls he received last year from Israeli officials who were concerned about a similar proposal by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) to cut US funding to the PA.
The legislation is named after American war veteran Taylor Force, who was stabbed to death by a Palestinian terrorist who 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.
PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah faction praised the terrorist who murdered Force as a “heroic martyr,” and the PA has yet to condemn the attack.

Rivlin to Irish FM: If Jews Have No Ties to Jerusalem, Irish Have No Ties to Dublin
In a meeting with the Irish foreign minister, Rivlin stressed the importance of recognizing the connection between the Jewish people and the Land of Israel.
President Reuven Rivlin met on Wednesday at his residence in Jerusalem with senior Irish diplomat Simon Coveney, whose visit to Israel was his first outside Europe as Ireland’s foreign minister. They discussed the relationship between the two countries, but the diplomatic process with the Palestinians, regarding which the Irish are notoriously biased in favor of the Palestinians, was the focus of their meeting.
Rivlin noted the Palestinians’ “tragic rejection” of Israel as a Jewish state, or as a state at all, and stressed the importance of recognizing the connection between the Jewish people and the Land of Israel.
Ridiculing a string of resolutions endorsed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) that deny Judaism’s connection to its holiest sites, and specifically that Israel has no connections to Jerusalem, Rivlin said that “to suggest the Jewish people have no connection to Jerusalem, is to suggest the Irish people have no connection with Dublin or Guinness!”
Referring to the ties between Israel and Ireland, Rivlin noted that “the relationship between Israel and Ireland is very important, in spite of differences of opinion which we have from time to time.”
While there is an impression in Israel “that Ireland takes a different position to Israel, can I say that in essence though, we are yearning for the same thing that I think the vast majority of Israelis are, which is a peaceful future,” Coveney stated.

A vandal was recorded carving some 30 swastikas into a New York sidewalk. 
An apparently anti-Semitic vandal was caught on camera carving over two dozen swastikas into a freshly paved sidewalk in a Brooklyn neighborhood in front of a building under construction. The owners are Jewish.
Surveillance footage taken at around midnight Saturday shows the vandal, with a flashlight in his mouth and a tool in his hand, drawing some 30 Nazi symbols on a street described by the media as “ethnically diverse.”
The suspect was also proudly taking photographs of his handiwork.
“This guy’s on a mission,” New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind said. “He wants to make a statement, and he does.”
Hikind said crews had just poured fresh concrete that day, arousing suspicion that the vandal lives in the area.

UN Report Says Hamas-Ruled Gaza May Become ‘Unlivable’
 Gaza, under Hamas rule, has deteriorated to the extent that it may become unlivable, the UN warns.
A new report by the United Nations (UN) said the Gaza Strip may become “unlivable” by 2020, while Israel said the Palestinian terror group Hamas, which has ruled Gaza for the past decade, is largely to blame for the situation.
According to the report, the population in Gaza is growing faster than the coastal territory’s infrastructure and economy, which are deteriorating more rapidly than expected.
“We predicted some years ago that Gaza would fast become unlivable on a host of indicators and that deadline is actually approaching even faster than we predicted—from health access, to energy to water,” Robert Piper, the UN coordinator for humanitarian aid and development activities, told AFP following the report’s release.
The report said Gaza’s population, which is currently 2 million and is projected to grow to 2.2 million by 2020, is being squeezed as resources like food and clean water become scarcer, and while pollution and energy shortages become more prevalent.

PM Netanyahu: New Jerusalem Tourist Center Will Show World "the Truth"

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced Sunday that Israel would finalize plans to construct the Kedem Center for tourists in eastern Jerusalem, outside the Old City, following the U.N. cultural body UNESCO’s passage of its two latest anti-Israel resolutions.
“Today I have instructed that procedures be completed for the construction of the Kedem Center for displaying the historical and archaeological findings for the City of David,” Netanyahu said at Israel’s weekly cabinet meeting.
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/150-JerusalemCovenant4-600WIDE.jpg
“This will be an impressive structure with extensive displays. The entire world will see the truth and the first visitors whom I will invite there will be UNESCO and U.N. delegations,” he added.
UNESCO passed a resolution July 5 condemning Israeli activity in Jerusalem’s Old City, referring to Israel as an “occupying power” there. Two days later, UNESCO approved a measure designating the Old City of Hebron—including the Cave of the Patriarchs, one of Judaism’s holiest places—as an endangered Palestinian heritage site.

Do Psychedelic Drugs Cause the 'Prophetic Effect'?

In their search for possible benefits of psilocybin ‘Magic Mushrooms’, researchers at Johns Hopkins University put out a call for clergy from different faiths to determine if this natural psychedelic can help man connect with God. Rabbis, even those who have benefitted in the past from this experience, are reluctant, highlighting that the true ‘God experience’ cannot be confined to a laboratory.
After nearly 50 years of a ban on studying psychedelic drugs and marijuana, scientists are beginning to discover that psychoactive substances bear many physiological and psychological benefits for mankind. Two researchers at Johns Hopkins Bayview, Roland Griffiths and Matthew Johnson, have been studying the powerful effects of psilocybin for over a decade. They discovered the natural substance is effective in reducing depression and end-of-life anxiety associated with terminal cancers. Psilocybin was also found to be effective in helping end addiction.

New Research Sheds Light on Centuries-Old Cannons Discovered Off Israel's Coast

A research study conducted at Tel Aviv University indicates that three centuries-old bronze cannons discovered off the coast of Megadim in northern Israel may have been the private property of merchants, rather than belonging to a naval force.
According to a research report published in the August edition of the Journal of Archaeological Science, the cannons were likely part of a weapons cache belonging to sailor merchants, whose ship wrecked off the coast of Haifa in the late 16th century or early 17th century, during what is known as the “Age of the Sail” from 1571–1862.
The researchers’ conclusions are based on the first-ever chemical analysis of Venetian bronze cannons from the 16th century, and serve as a basis for future surveys of similar cannons
The three cannons were initially discovered in 1972, and two were brought ashore for further analysis. In 2013, the third cannon was retrieved. The first two cannons are classified as “sakers,” measuring around 11.5 feet long, and the third cannon is a “falcon,” measuring nine feet long.

Why Would Anyone Destroy the Ten Commandments?
By Tsivya Fox July 11, 2017 , 12:30 pm
“And God spoke all these words” Exodus 20:1 (The Israel Bible™)
The Ten Commandments statue in Arkansas that was destroyed. (Photo: Facebook)
The day after a monument depicting the Ten Commandments was installed at the Arkansas State Capitol in Little Rock,  Michael T. Reed II drove his 2016 Dodge Dart into the 6-foot-tall (1.8-meter-tall), 6,000 pound (2,721-kilogram) granite slab, shattering it to pieces. Apparently, Reed livestreamed the escapade on Facebook using a video camera inside his car. A man’s voice in the video is heard saying, “Oh my goodness. Freedom!” as the car crashes into the monument.

The Ten Commandments structure was installed with little fanfare and no advanced notice two years after lawmakers approved a measure permitting the privately funded statue on state grounds. Previously, the state Supreme Court decided that the religious display on public property violated the Constitution. However, Republican Senator Jason Rapert, who spearheaded the project, argued that the Capitol grounds were beautiful but lacked a monument honoring the historical, moral foundation of law.
“The Ten Commandments are the basis for most of the laws in civilized nations,” noted Roni Segal, academic adviser for The Israel Institute of Biblical Studies, a company which offers courses on Bible and and Biblical languages, to Breaking Israel News. “It is true that the original Ten Commandments, which appear twice in the Bible, in Exodus 20:1-17 and Deuteronomy 5:1-22, have some religious components like knowing that there is only one God and keeping the Sabbath. In fact, Catholics and Protestants have a bit of a different version, which adds to the challenges of publicizing them.”

Newly Released Video Shows Arab Hebron Mayor Boasting of Murdering Jews
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz July 9, 2017 , 1:30 pm
“Woe to them that devise iniquity and work evil upon their beds! When the morning is light they execute it because it is in the power of their hand.” Micah 2:1 (The Israel Bible™)
Hebron Mayor Tayseer Abu Sneineh (Photo: Facebook)
A video showing the newly elected Arab mayor of Hebron Tayseer Abu Sneineh boasting about murdering Jews to his constituents was released on social media last week, just two days before UNESCO voted to exclusively recognize the Muslim history of the city while simultaneously designating it a world heritage site.
Abu Sneineh ran his successful campaign just a few months ago based on his past merits: in 1993, he was elected to the to the Waqf (the Muslim authority) which administers the mosque in the Cave of the Patriarchs. He is also member of the Fatah party, formerly known as the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), headed by Palestinian Authority President, Mahmoud Abbas. But the accomplishment of which he spoke most proudly throughout his campaign was spilling Jewish blood with his own hands in the streets of Hebron, the city he now runs.
In May 1980, after careful planning, Abu Sneinah and three others attacked a group of Jews returning from Friday night prayer. Using automatic weapons and hand grenades, the terrorists murdered six Jews and injured 20 in the most deadly terror attack since the 1967 war. The victims were young yeshiva (Bible school) students, two of them Americans and one Canadian. The four terrorists were sentenced to life imprisonment, but were released in the early 1980’s in a prisoner exchange deal.
With no pretense of remorse, Abu Sneinah boasted to his constituents about his role in the murders as seen in a video just released last week which showed Abu Sneinah speaking to a group of Hebron Arab residents, describing how he and his cohorts waited in order to kill the most Jews.

Hebron’s Tomb of Patriarchs is Jewish

 July 9, 2017

Netanyahu read from the Bible to demonstrate that UNESCO’s resolution on Hebron negated religion, history and the facts.  
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu read passages from the Bible during Sunday’s weekly Cabinet meeting as a refutation of Friday’s resolution passed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage Committee designating the Tomb of the Patriarchs and Hebron a Palestinian heritage site.
“I would like to read from Genesis 23:16-19: ‘And Abraham hearkened unto Ephron; and Abraham weighed to Ephron the silver, which he had named in the hearing of the children of Heth, four hundred shekels of silver, current money with the merchant…And after this, Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of the field of Machpelah before Mamre–the same is Hebron–in the land of Canaan. And the field, and the cave that is therein, were made sure unto Abraham for a possession of a burying-place by the children of Heth,'” Netanyahu read.
“The connection between the Jewish People and Hebron and the Tomb of the Patriarchs is one of purchase and of history which may be without parallel in the history of peoples,” Netanyahu declared.
“Of course this did not prevent the UNESCO World Heritage Committee last Friday from passing yet another delusional resolution which determined that the Tomb of the Patriarchs, the same Cave of Machpelah, is a Palestinian heritage site,” the Israeli premier derided the resolution.

How do the UN and those who engineer its anti-Israel resolutions and campaigns justify promoting a twisted version of history that erases the Jewish tradition?
In the UN’s version of events, how do they justify the massacre of Jews at their holiest sites, such as the cave in Hebron purchased by the first Jew, Abraham, to bury his wife, the first Jewess, Sarah?

Recently discovered panels on an ancient synagogue floor in the Galilee show  famous biblical sagas unfolding.
A mosaic depicting the biblical story of Jonah has recently been uncovered at the synagogue at Huqoq, an ancient Jewish village in Israel’s Lower Galilee. This represents the first time the story of Jonah has been discovered decorating the floor of a synagogue in Israel.
The panel, exposed by a team led by University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill professor Jodi Magness, shows the biblical story of Jonah and the whale with a twist: Jonah’s legs are shown dangling from the mouth of a large fish, which is being swallowed by a larger fish, with this larger fish being swallowed by an even larger fish.
Additional mosaics found at the late Roman era synagogue at Huqoq include a medallion in the center of the uppermost (northern) panel depicting the Greco-Roman sun god Helios in a quadriga, a four-horse chariot, surrounded by personifications of the months and the signs of the zodiac, contained within a square frame with personifications of the four seasons in the corners.
The third and southernmost panel contains a detailed scene of men at work constructing a stone structure, apparently the Tower of Babel.

Former BBC Head Slams Network for Anti-Israel Bias
Previous network head chides BBC for demonstrable bias and anti-Israel agenda.
A former chairman of the BBC blasted the network for its biased coverage of a recent Palestinian terror attack in Jerusalem.
In a speech before the House of Lords on Wednesday, Lord Michael Grade recalled that in its initial report of a lethal attack by three Palestinians on Israeli police officers in June, which resulted in the death of 23-year-old Israeli policewoman Hadas Malka, the BBC’s headline read, “Three Palestinians killed after deadly stabbing in Jerusalem.”
Grade acknowledged that the network reacted to criticism by changing the headline to “Israeli policewoman stabbed to death in Jerusalem,” redirecting its focus to the victim of the attack, rather than its perpetrators. However, he said that the initial headline played a role in “the drip-drip effect of unqualified, un-contextualised singling out of Israel for criticism.”
“If the BBC can get this wrong,” Grade continued, “it is little wonder that Israel finds it so hard to put aside the idea that some critics are motivated by something more sinister than political commentary.”
The BBC apologized for the incident, claiming in was a mistake which was subsequently corrected.
In October 2015, Grade leveled a similar criticism against the BBC for highlighting the deaths of Palestinian terrorists killed by Israeli security forces while carrying out attacks, but ignoring the effects of those assaults on Israelis. “An emotional interview is conducted with the father of a dead Palestinian youth who had been killed committing a fatal terror attack,” Grade observed at the time. “However, the report failed to show the emotional distress caused to Israelis by any of these recent attacks. This is inexcusable.”
Grade also criticized the network for reporting that the Palestinian youth was unaffiliated with any terror group, “before immediately showing footage of Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) banners” in his family’s house.
A parliamentary inquiry into the rise of anti-Semitism in Britain during the 2014 war between Israel and Hamas found that “the media, and in particular the BBC, had a role to play in whipping up anger through emotive content in the news and analysis that was broadcast.”

Anonymous Arab ambassador: ‘Sorry’ for UNESCO vote on Hebron

Anonymous Arab ambassador: ‘Sorry’ for UNESCO vote on HebronOutside the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron (Chaim Blaycher/TPS)
 Print  Email  19 Comments
An unnamed Arab UNESCO ambassador expressed regret for supporting the agency’s most recent anti-Israel resolution.

The ambassador to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) of an Arab country that does not have diplomatic ties with Israel has apologized to Israel’s UNESCO ambassador, Carmel Shama-Hacohen, for voting for the most recent resolution declaring Hebron’s Old City and the Cave of the Patriarchs to be exclusively a Palestinian World Heritage Site.

“Sorry for today, it was too heated, it is difficult to say it was a secret vote,” the ambassador told Shama-Hacohen in a message through Whatsapp, as originally reported by the Israeli news outlet, Yedioth Ahronoth.

“I know my friend,” replied Shama-Hacohen. “For me, it is like you did it.”

The Arab ambassador apparently conditioned his voting against the resolution so long as it would be by secret ballot. However, when the vote was held out in the open, the ambassador had “no choice” but to vote in favor.
Israel has already responded in protest to the resolution with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s announcement over the weekend that it  would cut another $1 million from UN membership payments to be allocated instead for a museum of Jewish heritage in Hebron.
The United States is looking at similar moves of its own, as noted by US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley after the vote.
“The United States is currently evaluating the appropriate level of its continued engagement at UNESCO,” she said after the vote, deeming the resolution “an affront to history.”
Haley added that the resolution only serves to “further discredit an already highly questionable UN agency.”

Israel refutes reported progress with Hamas regarding five Israelis who disappeared in Gaza, while leaders express opposition to a terrorist-information swap.
Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said Sunday there is no substance to reports that Israel and Hamas were close to a preliminary deal on the way to a prisoner exchange.
“There are no contacts with Hamas; there is an ongoing effort to achieve the release of our soldiers and civilians held in captivity by Hamas. There is no breakthrough,” Liberman told the Galei Yisrael radio station.
“We do not negotiate with terrorist organizations, there are various parties that are negotiating with them, such as Egypt and others, but we have no intention of ever holding direct negotiations with the murderers of Hamas,” Liberman added.
Liberman’s comments followed reports in the Lebanese daily Al-Akhbar claiming that the first stage of a deal would be concluded within the next three months.

Israel can only welcome a Syria ceasefire that leaves no room for the military presence of Iran and its proxies. 
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu expressed conditional support for a ceasefire in Syria, during a meeting with his cabinet earlier on Sunday.
“Israel will welcome a genuine ceasefire in Syria but this ceasefire must not enable the establishment of a military presence by Iran and its proxies in Syria in general and in southern Syria in particular,” Netanyahu stressed.
Netanyahu made his remarks as a new ceasefire brokered by the United States and Russia was set to go into effect on Sunday in southwest Syria, near Israel’s Golan Heights region, establishing a “de-escalation zone” in the Syrian province of Deraa as well as in nearby Sweida and Quneitra.
The prime minister also said that he had not only spoken earlier this week with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the matter but with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson as well.
“I had deep discussions about this last week with US Secretary of State Tillerson and with Russian President Vladimir Putin,” Netanyahu noted. “Both told me that they understand Israel’s position and will take our demands into account.”

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) on Sunday attacked the Republican health care plan to replace the Affordable Care Act, arguing it would kill more Americans each year than the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
“Now obviously nobody can predict exactly how many people will die if they lose their coverage. Nobody can make that prediction,” Sanders said at a rally in Morgantown, W.Va. “But what experts at the Harvard School of Public Health estimate, is that if 23 million Americans were to be thrown off the insurance they currently have, which is what the House bill would do, up to, up to 28,000 Americans every single year could die.”
Sanders then compared the Republican health care plan to the Sept. 11 terror attacks carried out by al Qaeda that killed nearly 3,000 Americans.
Bear in mind, this is a socialist claiming that a revised health care system is going to cause massive amounts of death and hysteria.

The same socialist mindset and platform which has led a country like Venezuela to force its own people to ration toothpaste. Socialism kills people.

But yeah, fixing Obamacare, now that’s bad. Terrorism-level bad.

It’s not the first time we’ve seen liberals compare things they don’t agree with to the horrific events that occurred on 9/11. They make such comparisons because they’re simple-minded people.

Hollywood actor Robert De Niro compared the election results to 9/11. As did so many other snowflakes in coping with Hillary Clinton’s loss. Harry Reid compared Russian hacking to 9/11.

To paraphrase the Geico commercials: If you’re liberals, you compare Republicans to terrorists. It’s what you do.

Meanwhile, the Republicans will continue trying to fix the Obamacare mess – the one that actually increased mortality rates while it was policy.

The chart above translates to 11,000 excess annual U.S. adult deaths relative to the pre-Obamacare trends.

Is the GOP health care bill or Obamacare worse for Americans? Share your thoughts below!

Israel Wants Trump to Consider Alternatives in Peace Process
Israeli Defense Minister Liberman advocates a regional arrangement for peace with the Palestinians, instead of the as-yet unsuccessful bilateral approach.
During a weekly meeting with the political party he chairs, Yisrael Beiteinu, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman called upon US President Donald Trump’s advisor on Israel, Jason Greenblatt, to end efforts aimed at a bilateral peace agreement with the Palestinian Authority (PA).
“I doubt if we can advance anything, let alone a historic or far-reaching agreement,” Liberman said, according to the Jerusalem Post.
Greenblatt, tweeted on Sunday night that he was “headed back to Israel and the Palestinian Territories to continue our efforts to try to achieve a lasting peace.”
At Monday’s meeting, Liberman argued against a bilateral peace process by pointing to the repeated failed attempts using this approach.
“Therefore we call on the American envoy to ditch the bilateral track and instead invest all efforts into a regional arrangement,” Liberman continued.
“If all the energy is invested in normalizing ties between Israel and the Arab states, the Palestinians and all others will have no choice but to join the initiative.”

Haifa residents demand UNESCO Square be renamed

Haifa residents demand UNESCO Square be renamedView of UNESCO Square from the Baha'i Gardens. (young shanahan/Wikicommons)
Haifa residents are demanding that the city’s UNESCO Square be renamed in the wake of a string of anti-Israel resolutions passed by the organization.
Several Haifa residents are demanding that a square in the city center named after the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) be renamed following the organization’s passing of a string of resolutions that deny Judaism’s connection to its holiest sites.
Most recently, UNESCO voted to declare Hebron’s Old City, including the Cave of the Patriarchs, a Palestinian World Heritage Site.
The square in Haifa, an ethnically and religiously diverse city, was named “The UNESCO Square for Peace and Tolerance” in 2008, after the organization added the Baha’i Gardens, situated right above it, to the list of World Heritage Sites.
Nir Shuber, a local activist, told Israel’s Walla news that social media has been abuzz with traffic on the issue. He launched a petition calling to rename the square.
“UNESCO is the last organization that can be described as working towards tolerance and peace,” he stated.
Given UNESCO’s anti-Israel positions, it is not merely a coincidence that in recent years, UNESCO Square has become the location for demonstrations against the Jewish state, Shuber said. He suggested that the square be named after Israel Prize winner Vered Hulda-Gurevich, who had helped disabled IDF veterans and their families, late President Shimon Peres, or late Haifa Mayor Aryeh Gur’el.
In 1975, former Haifa Mayor Abba Hushi changed the name of “The United Nations Boulevard” to “Zionism Boulevard” following the UN General Assembly’s passage of a resolution that equated Zionism with racism.

6 Members of ‘Lost’ Jewish-Indian Tribe Join IDF
After ending a 2,700 year old exile by returning to Israel, six members of the Indian Jewish community have taken the next step and joined the IDF.
Six members of a “lost” Jewish tribe from India, the Bnei Menashe, will serve together in the same IDF combat unit. All six soldiers immigrated to Israel within the last two years.
The soldiers — Khananya Baite, 21; Ayal Haokip, 20; Ben Gurion Kipgen, 19; Amos Pulamte, 20; Michael Sitlhou, 22; and Binyamin Tungnung, 20 — will serve in the IDF Givati Brigade’s 432nd “Tzabar” battalion.
“I grew up in the state of Manipur in India, and in 2015 I was allowed to immigrate to Israel with all the members of my family — except for my older brother and his family, who remained in India,” Tungnung said at his IDF swearing-in ceremony.
“Three months ago I joined the IDF and was happy to discover that I was serving in the same unit with five friends,” he continued. “My family’s dream was always to immigrate to Israel and build our future there, and my private dream was always to serve as a soldier in the IDF.”
The soldiers recently made aliyah with the help of Shavei Israel, a Jerusalem-based nonprofit that calls itself “the only Jewish organization today that is actively reaching out to ‘lost Jews’ in an effort to facilitate their return [to Israel].”
Members of the Bnei Menashe community are said to descend from Jews hailing from the tribe of Manasseh who were banished from ancient Israel to India in the 8th century BCE.
In 2005, then-Sephardic Chief Rabbi of Israel Shlomo Amar officially recognized the Bnei Menashe as a “lost” tribe. Since then, some 3,000 Bnei Menashe have made aliyah, and 7,000 remain in India.
“More than 2,700 years after their ancestors were exiled from the Land of Israel, the Bnei Menashe are returning home and proving time and again that they have a strong desire to integrate into Israeli society and make a real contribution to the state,” said Michael Freund, founder and chairman of Shavei Israel.

Both Netanyahu and Rivlin thanked the Rwandan president for his country’s UN voting record. 
Israel’s leaders warmly greeted Rwandan president Paul Kagame on Monday as he arrived in Israel for a two-day visit to expand cooperation in a number of sectors.
Both Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin hailed Rwanda’s record under Kagame’s leadership of abstaining from many anti-Israel votes at United Nations (UN) forums.
“We see how you stand up for Israel in international forums,” Netanyahu said, noting that “bilateral relationships should be reflected in multilateral forums.”
“There is a dissonance between us and a few other nations still,” Netanyahu lamented.
Netanyahu has expanded upon a campaign over the last two years to get African countries to avoid making anti-Israel votes in UN bodies, most recently during an address at a conference of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).
The Israeli prime minister reportedly became the first non-African leader to address ECOWAS. In a similar manner Kagame became the first African leader to address the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) in March during the organization’s annual conference.
Rivlin expressed confidence and optimism about Rwanda’s membership in the UN Human Rights Council.
“We know that Rwanda is now going to be member of the UN Human Rights Council,” Rivlin said. “This is a body which is always against Israel, so we welcome all those who are prepared to speak for us.”

By: Navras Jaat Aafreedi
Indo-Israel relations have never been in as sharp a focus as now, thanks to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Jerusalem, the first ever by an Indian prime minister, marking the 25th anniversary of bilateral relations between the world’s largest democracy and the world’s only Jewish State. This PM’s visit is indicative of the fact that the time has come for Jewish Studies to be introduced in Indian academia. It reminds us of Victor Hugo, who said: “There is one thing stronger than all the armies in the world, and that is an idea whose time has come.”
India cannot ignore the study of a civilization as ancient as Judea with which it has had links for ages and a modern state with whom it shares more interests than with any other, that is Israel. Jews are India’s smallest religious minority while the Muslims are its biggest.

A Palestinian terrorist on Monday ran his car into an IDF post near Tekoa, in Gush Etzion, moderately wounding an IDF soldier.
The terrorist rammed his car into a pillbox manned by IDF soldiers at the T junction near Tekoa, and then exited his car with a knife in his hand with the intent of stabbing soldiers.
In response, IDF soldiers shot and killed him, with one soldier moderately wounded from a poll that fell on him as a result of the car ramming.
The victim, 20, was taken to Shaare Zedek hospital in Jerusalem with wounds to his legs.
This incident is the latest in a long series of Palestinian terror attacks, which has plagued Israel for over a year, claiming the lives of 47 victims and wounding close to 700.

Mennonite Church USA Votes to Boycott Israel
Mennonite Church USA
The Mennonite Church USA has voted to boycott companies profiting from Israel’s “occupation.”
The Mennonite Church USA voted Thursday to divest from any financial holdings of companies profiting from Israel’s “occupation.”
A divestment resolution, which received 98-percent support among the 550 delegates at the Church’s national convention in Orlando, Florida, says the Protestant sect “opposes the Israeli military occupation while taking a stand against anti-Semitism and affirming the need to build stronger relationships with Jewish communities.”
The resolution asks the Church’s $3 billion financial agency, Everence, to “review investment practices for the purpose of withdrawing investments from companies that are profiting from the occupation.” It also calls on individual adherents of the Mennonite denomination to review their investments.
The economic impact is expected to be minimal.
Mennonites had rejected a divestment proposal at their last national meeting two years ago amid fears that the resolution would be considered anti-Jewish. In addition to opposing anti-Semitism, the statement adopted Thursday endorses a review of the Mennonite response to the Holocaust.
Dawing its roots from the Radical Reformation of the 16th century in Germany and Switzerland, Mennonite Church USA was formed as a result of the 2002 merger between the Mennonite Church and the General Conference Mennonite Church.
Like other mainline Protestant movements, Mennonite Church USA has suffered substantial membership declines in recent decades. Its stated membership was just 75,000 in 2016.
Earlier this month, another mainline Protestant church, the United Church of Christ, overwhelmingly approved a resolution condemning Israel for its alleged treatment of Palestinian children.

Israel gave the Palestinians control of a new power station, a significant boon to the Palestinian economy.
The Israel Electricity Company (IEC) and the Palestinian Authority (PA) on Monday signed the first commercial agreement between them, which will increase the electricity supply in northern Samaria.
During a ceremony marking the historic signing, an electrical substation in the Jenin area, in Samaria, transferred into Palestinian control.
The station will significantly strengthen the Palestinian economy.
The agreement stipulates that the new power station, which begins operating in the next two days, will increase the electricity supply by about 60 megawatts to northern Samaria, including the Palestinian cities of Jenin, Qabatiya and Tubas.
The new substation is capable of providing up to 135 megawatts and is one of four of its kind owned by the PA, with the other three still under construction.
This agreement is the fifth such pact to be signed by Israel and the Palestinians in the last three years in the areas of finance, power and water.

Egyptian-Palestinian meeting points to Gaza leadership change

Egyptian-Palestinian meeting points to Gaza leadership changeMohammed Dahlan (AP/Nasser Shiyoukhi)
An Egypt-Hamas deal may lead to a change in Palestinian leadership.   
Egyptian and Palestinian leaders met amid signs of a rapprochement between Cairo and the Hamas Islamic terror group that could shake up Gaza’s political landscape and marginalize Palestinian Authority (PA) head Mahmoud Abbas.
Against the backdrop of this shifting reality, Abbas and Egypt’s Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi met in Cairo on Sunday.
According to the Palestinian Ma’an news agency, al-Sissi affirmed to Abbas that he “supports the legitimate Palestinian leadership” and described the meeting as “successful.”
Officials close to Abbas said the Palestinian leader had requested the meeting to seek clarifications on what appears to be an emerging power-sharing agreement between Gaza’s Hamas rulers and an exiled Abbas rival, former Gaza strongman Mohammed Dahlan.
Under the deal — parts of which have been confirmed by other parties involved — Hamas would retain control over Gaza’s security, while Dahlan would eventually return to Gaza and handle its foreign relations.
Abbas has been working to block the return of Dahlan, a former Abbas aide who fell out with his boss several years ago and went into exile.
Several Arab countries, including the United Arab Emirates (UAE), have been pressing Abbas to allow Dahlan, a millionaire businessman, to reclaim a leadership position in the PA. Abbas has so far effectively blocked Dahlan’s return to the top ranks of Palestinian leadership.

Hamas pleased with UNESCO’s criticism of Israel as “occupying power” in Jerusalem’s Old City.
The Hamas terror group, which rules the Gaza Strip, gave high praise to a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) resolution labeling Israel the “occupying power” in the Old City of Jerusalem and criticizing archeological excavations in the city.
The Jordanian-sponsored resolution, passed on Tuesday, “regrets the failure of the Israeli occupying authorities to cease the persistent excavations, tunneling, works, projects and other illegal practices in East Jerusalem, particularly in and around the Old City of Jerusalem, which are illegal under international law.”
Hamas spokesman Abedllatif Al Qanoua, on Wednesday stressed that UNESCO’s resolution “demolishes the false Israeli narrative and asserts the Palestinian right in Jerusalem and Al Aqsa Mosque.”

While Trump urged Russia to cease support for Syria and Iran, US Secretary of State Tillerson stressed openness to cooperation with Russia in Syria. 
US President Donald Trump called upon Russia to end its support for Syria and Iran while addressing the Polish people at a memorial for the Warsaw uprising during the Nazi occupation of Poland.
“We urge Russia to cease its destabilizing activities in Ukraine and elsewhere and its support for hostile regimes including Syria and Iran, and to instead join the community of responsible nations in our fight against common enemies and the defense of civilization itself,” Trump said.
Trump made his remarks on the eve of his first face-to-face meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany in which both leaders are expected to touch upon issues and policies with each other over Ukraine and Syria.
Despite the Trump administration’s opposition to Russia’s support for the Syrian government, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that the United States is open to further cooperation with Russia in managing the ongoing civil war in Syria.
“The United States and Russia certainly have unresolved differences on a number of issues, but we have the potential to appropriately coordinate in Syria in order to produce stability and serve our mutual security interests,” Tillerson said on Wednesday before departing to the G20 summit.

Israel’s Casspi signs with NBA’s Golden State WarriorsOmri Casspi (AP/Gerald Herbert)
Another milestone for an Israeli athlete. Casspi joins the Golden State Warriors, 2017 NBA champions.
Israeli basketball player Omri Casspi signed a one-year contract with the Golden State Warriors, the 2017 National Basketball Association (NBA) champions.
Casspi closed the $2.1 million agreement during a midnight conference call with the team’s representatives, Israel’s Channel 2 reported.
A native of Holon, Casspi joined the NBA in 2009 as the first Israeli-born player in the league’s history. His last team was the Minnesota Timberwolves, who signed him after he was waived by the New Orleans Pelicans.
Casspi had suffered a broken thumb in his first game with New Orleans.
The Pelicans acquired him in February from the Sacramento Kings as part of their trade for All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins.
In eight NBA seasons, the 6-foot-9 Casspi has averaged 8.2 points and 4.1 rebounds per game, while shooting about 37 percent from three-point range.
The Warriors will be his sixth NBA team.

Israeli Security Forces Thwart Major Terror Attack in Jerusalem
Vigilant Israeli security forces thwarted a major Palestinian terror attack in Jerusalem. 
On Tuesday, Israeli Police searched six Palestinians at a checkpoint on the southeastern outskirts of Jerusalem, finding in their possession a bag containing knives, stun grenades and Molotov cocktails. By discovering the weapons, the police foiled an attempted terrorist attack.
Border police officers at the Mizmoria Checkpoint, at Jerusalem’s southern entrance, noticed that the back and front license plates on the suspects’ car did not match.
The officers stopped the vehicle and instructed the six men to get out of the car. All were Palestinians, and none of them were carrying identity cards or permits to enter Israel.
The vehicle was later found not to have a valid license.
The crossing was shut down and a sapper was called to the area to check the car, while the suspects were transferred to a Border Police station for questioning.
Police said the suspects admitted they were headed to Jerusalem to carry out a terror attack.

Abbas remains defiant in his quest to reward Palestinian terrorism. 
Palestinian Authority (PA) head Mahmoud Abbas has pledged not to stop paying salaries to imprisoned Palestinian terrorists and to the families of so-called “martyrs,” who are in reality terrorists killed while committing attacks, even if it costs Abbas his presidency.
Abbas’ Fatah Movement quoted him on their Facebook page as saying “even if I will have to leave my position, I will not compromise on the salary  of a martyr, shahid, or a prisoner, as I am the president of the entire Palestinian people.”
According to its 2016 budget, the PA pays 26,800 families of “martyrs” a total of 660 million shekels ($183 million) per year, and 6,500 terrorist prisoners receive PA salaries amounting to 486 million shekels ($135 million) a year.
Citing Abbas’ promise,  Fatah Central Committee member Jamal Muhaisen emphasized that the issue of salaries to terrorist prisoners and “martyr” families is not about money, but is rather about the “Palestinian historical narrative.”

Israeli officials blast UNESCO resolution calling Israel ‘occupying power’
 July 4, 2017
Israeli officials blast UNESCO resolution calling Israel ‘occupying power’(UNESCO)
Israeli ambassador to the UN Danny Danon deemed UNESCO body a “faux heritage committee” after it declared Israel an “occupying power” in Jerusalem. 
Senior Israeli officials strongly condemned a resolution passed by the World Heritage Committee in the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) labeling Israel an “occupying power” in Jerusalem.
“Nothing is more disgraceful than UNESCO declaring the world’s only Jewish state the ‘occupier’ of the Western Wall and Jerusalem’s Old City,” said Israeli UN Ambassador Danny Danon shortly after the vote in Krakow, Poland.
“Yesterday, I toured the City of David and the Old City with UN ambassadors from around the world and explained the deep and ancient connection between the Jewish people and the holiest sites of our nation,” he continued. “No faux ‘heritage committee’ can sever the bonds between our people and Jerusalem.”
Tuesday’s resolution condemns Israeli archeological discoveries of evidence pointing to the Jewish people’s long-held connection to Jerusalem, and “regrets the failure of the Israeli occupying authorities to cease the persistent excavations, tunneling, works, projects and other illegal practices in East Jerusalem, particularly in and around the Old City of Jerusalem, which are illegal under international law.”
The following ten states voted in favor of the resolution: Azerbaijan, Indonesia, Lebanon, Tunisia, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Turkey, Vietnam, Zimbabwe and Cuba. The Philippines, Jamaica and Burkina Faso voted against with another eight countries, Angola, Croatia, Finland, Peru, Poland, Portugal, South Korea and Tanzania, abstaining.
Education Minister Naftali Bennett’s response to the vote echoed Danon’s.
“UNESCO’s repeated fake claims do not change the Jewish connection to Jerusalem or reality on the ground,” he said.

Woman in US charged in plot to poison Israeli ex-husbandDanielle Layman (YouTube)
A woman in the US wan charged with a murder-for-hire plot to end a custody battle with her Israeli ex-husband.
An Israeli expat living in Oklahoma is accused of trying to hire someone via Craigslist to travel to Israel and kill her ex-husband using ricin poison.
Federal prosecutors charged 37-year-old Danielle Dana Layman on Saturday with using interstate commerce facilities in the commission of murder-for-hire. Prosecutors said in a news release Monday that Layman posted on the classifieds website advertising a seemingly innocent “10 day gig overseas.”
According to an affidavit, the ad read: “For production overseas, looking for talent, 30-45 years old. Doesn’t have to be a professional actor. Required: Creative, outgoing and friendly, positive personality, boldness and bravery (some stunts may seem risky, although they are completely safe).” It added that experience in acting, magic shows and casino dealing was preferred.

Workmen suspected of stealing IDF weaponsSome of the recovered stolen weapons. (Police spokesman)
Police busted a ring that stole weapons from the IDF and sold them to criminals.  
An intensive investigation by Israel’s security forces exposed a network that traded in stolen weapons.
The network stole assault weapons, and other IDF military equipment, while conducting construction work on a southern base in May.
The network is suspected of stealing 33 M-16 assault rifles and selling them to criminal elements.
A two-member crew working on the base stole the weapons and sold 10 of them to a criminal ring in the South and another 18 rifles to a crime gang in the North that same day. They sold another five guns four days later.
The transfer was made by hiding the guns in a car trunk and exchanging cars with the crime ring at a gas station.
The police recovered 11 of the stolen weapons and another three weapons, as well as a large drugs cache. Police confiscated the suspects’ vehicles used during the burglary.

US-backed Syrian forces breach ISIS capital

In a major development, US-backed fighters breached the wall surrounding Raqqa, ISIS’ capital. 
US-backed Syrian forces have breached the wall around Raqqa’s Old City, the US military said Tuesday, marking a major advance in the weeks-old battle to drive Islamic State (ISIS) out of its self-declared capital.
The US Central Command said the coalition conducted targeted strikes on two “small portions” of the Rafiqah Wall, allowing the fighters “to advance into the most heavily fortified portion” of the city. It said the strikes allowed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) fighters to bypass booby traps and snipers, and left most of the 2,500-meter (yard) wall intact.
The head of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), Rami Abdurrahman, said the breaching of the wall was the most important development to date in the battle for Raqqa.
He said three SDF units advanced toward the wall under air cover, breaking through the ISIS defenses, and that heavy clashes were underway.
The Kurdish-led SDF launched a multi-pronged assault on Raqqa last month after securing the surrounding countryside. On Sunday, the US-backed fighters crossed the Euphrates River on the southern edge of the city, completing its encirclement.
The US-led coalition is providing close air support to the SDF, which has already driven the terrorists from much of northern and eastern Syria.

With policies dictated by fear of negative media images spread across the globe, the West’s decision-making is susceptible to appeasement, censorship and retreat to avoid facing the horrible reality and fighting it head on. 
By: Giulio Meotti/ Gatestone Institute
September 2015. Thousands of Syrian migrants crossing the Balkan route were heading toward Germany. Chancellor Angela Merkel was on the phone with Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière, talking about a number of measures to protect the borders, where thousands of policemen were secretly located along with buses and helicopters. De Maizière turned for advice to Dieter Romann, then head of the police. “Can we live with the images that will come out?” de Mazière asked. “What happens if 500 refugees with children in their arms run toward the border guards?”
De Maiziére was told that the appropriate use of the measures to be taken would have be decided by the police on the field. When de Maizière relayed Romann’s response to the Chancellor, Merkel reversed her original commitment. And the borders were opened for 180 days.

North Korean leader to scientists: send deadly ‘gifts’ to Americans

North Korean leader to scientists: send deadly ‘gifts’ to AmericansNorth Korea launches an ICBM. (Korean Central News Agency/Korea News Service via AP)
North Korea vowed to continue developing nuclear weapons, announcing that its arsenal is not up for negotiations. 
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un declared Wednesday that his nation will “demonstrate its mettle to the US” and plans never to put its weapons program up for negotiation. These comments come just one day after North Korea successfully tested its first intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).
Kim’s hard line suggests that North Korea will conduct more weapons tests until it perfects nuclear-armed missiles capable of striking anywhere in the United States. Analysts say Kim’s government believes nuclear weapons are the key to its own survival and could be used to wrest concessions from the United States.
While Tuesday’s ICBM launch, confirmed by US and South Korean officials, represents a new stage in North Korea’s efforts to develop long-range nuclear-armed missiles, the communist nation isn’t there yet, and many analysts say it needs more tests to perfect such an arsenal.

Israel to build thousands of homes in eastern Jerusalem, ending contruction freeze

New construction plans in Jerusalem contradict an earlier report suggesting an ongoing freeze on building in eastern portions of the capital. 
A long-held construction freeze of Jewish homes in Jerusalem neighborhoods located in areas captured from Jordan during the Six-Day War in 1967 appears to have dissipated, according to a Ha’aretz report.
City planning committees are in preparations to authorize approximately 2000 new units in such neighborhoods.
The plans contradict a report, rejected by the Prime Minister’s Office, on Israel Army Radio some two weeks ago that claimed the Israeli government was abiding by a construction freeze in the Israeli capital.
Four buildings will be constructed in the largely Palestinian neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah, located north of the Old City, one of which will be a new building for the Ohr Somayach Yeshiva (a religious seminary).

Israeli parties agree to work on passing bill that would keep Jerusalem united
PM Netanyahu’s Likud party and the Jewish Home party agreed to draft text for a bill that would require the consent of two thirds of Israel’s Knesset members to relinquish parts of Jerusalem in any peace agreement.
Officials in the Likud and Jewish Home parties were at loggerheads during a meeting of the Ministerial Committee for Legislation over the proposed legislation, known as the “United Jerusalem” bill.
Netanyahu was said to have pulled the so-called “United Jerusalem” bill from this week’s agenda for the Ministerial Committee for Legislation.
Ministers from both parties were said to be at a stalemate over which of the two parties would take the lead in finalizing the bill’s details. Likud Ministers pushed for a Likud-based committee to take on the initiative, while Jewish Home insisted on having the Ministerial Committee for Legislation, chaired by Jewish Home member and Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked, do so.
Shortly after the meeting, Jewish Home Chairman Naftali Bennett said Netanyahu pulled the bill from this week’s agenda.
“Five minutes ago, the prime minister vetoed the United Jerusalem bill,” Bennett said.

IDF Destroys Monument for Terrorist; Palestinians Vow to Rebuild
Palestinian terror
The IDF destroyed a monument recently dedicated to a terrorist responsible for the murder of 26 Israelis, and the Palestinians have vowed to rebuild it. 
IDF forces on Friday destroyed a monument recently dedicated to terror mastermind Khaled Nazzal, and the Palestinians have vowed to rebuild it, continuing their declared policy of venerating terrorism and terrorists.
The square in Jenin was recently dedicated by the local municipality to Nazzal, the Secretary of the Central Committee of the Democratic Front for Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) and commander of its military branch, who planned the notorious Ma’alot Massacre.
In the May 1974 Ma’alot Massacre, terrorists took school children and their teacher hostage, and eventually murdered 22 children and four adults.

Israel will not ‘remain indifferent’ to Iranian missile factory in Lebanon
 July 3, 2017
Israel will not ‘remain indifferent’ to Iranian missile factory in LebanonDefense Minister Avigdor Liberman (Yonatan
There is no place for Iran or Assad in Syria’s future, Liberman said, while stressing that Israel will not hesitate to react to security threats. 
Israel will not be bound by any political agreement on Syria’s future as long as the Iranians are part of it and as long as Bashar Assad remains president of the war-torn country, Defense Minister Avidgor Liberman said on Sunday.
“There are efforts to reach an arrangement. This does not obligate us,” Liberman told a briefing of military reporters at IDF headquarters in Tel Aviv. “We will not accept any agreement in which the Iranians are involved. Regardless, we reserve the right to freedom of action and we will operate in accordance with our own security interests.”
The only acceptable agreement to Israel, Liberman said, would be one that included the withdrawal of Iran and its proxies from Syria, along with Assad’s removal from power.
“We will not agree to an arrangement that legitimizes Assad after he killed civilians and used chemical weapons,” continued Liberman. “We cannot accept the ‘axis of evil,’” meaning the alliance between Assad, Iran and their proxy terror groups.
“We will continue to assist Syrians in the vicinity of the border with the provision of basic goods and medical treatment, as we have done so far for approximately 3,000 people,” he underscored.
A fifth round of peace talks between Russia, Syria, Turkey, and Iran is scheduled to take place in the Kazakh capital of Astana this week.
Liberman also addressed recent reports of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) building an underground precision-guided missile factory in Lebanon to arm Hezbollah.
“We are aware of the phenomenon, and we know what needs to be done,” said Liberman. “In the past year, Iran has been working to establish an accurate production infrastructure for both Lebanon and Yemen. We cannot and will not remain indifferent to this.”

Israel submits landmark suit against terrorist’s estate

Israel submits landmark suit against terrorist’s estateThe scene of the truck attack. (Sebi Berens/Flash90)
Israel is taking a new approach to its war on terrorism, hitting a terrorist financially, even after his death.
Last month, the Jerusalem District Attorney submitted a landmark NIS eight million suit against the widow and children of Fadi al-Qunbar, a terrorist who murdered four IDF soldiers and wounded 15 in a ramming attack at Armon Hanatziv in January.
The four victims were Lt. Yael Yekutiel, 20, from Givatayim; Shir Hajaj, 22, from Ma’aleh Adumim; Shira Tzur, 20, from Haifa, and Erez Orbach, 20, from Alon Shvut.
Israel National News reported on Sunday that the suit is against Qunbar’s estate for the damages that the attack he committed caused to the state, including the cost of establishing memorial plaques for the soldiers, the payments to their families, and even burial costs. The estimated cost for each victim is NIS two million.
Kunbar’s widow and four children, who are the beneficiaries of Kunbar’s estate, could be affected by the suit.
The prosecutor intends to submit a series of similar suits against the families of other terrorists, another step taken by Israel in an attempt to deter potential terrorists by causing significant financial harm to terrorist families after their attacks, similar to the demolition of the terrorists’ homes.
The prosecution confirmed that another claim had already been made against another terrorist, and another claim will be submitted in the coming days.

Iran holds cartoon contest mocking TrumpUS President Donald Trump (Greg Allen/AP/File)
Some 1,600 works of art mocking Trump are on display in Tehran. 
Iranians have organized a “Trumpism” cartoon contest in which hundreds of participants have submitted artwork mocking the US leader.
The same organizers have held cartoon contests mocking the Holocaust. They claimed that the contest, which is infamous for displaying anti-Semitic works and Holocaust denial, was meant to highlight Western double standards on free speech and not to cast doubt on the Nazi genocide.
The logo for the Trump contest is based on the Nazi emblem, with a diagonal “T” in a white circle against a red background. One cartoon shows President Donald Trump painting a Hitler-like mustache on the face of the Statue of Liberty.
The exhibition, which opened Monday, includes some 1,600 works from Iranians and participants from another 75 countries.
“This contest considers Trump a symbol of US capitalism and hegemony that many intellectuals compare with Nazism,” said Masoud Shojaei-Tabatabai, an organizer for both the “Trumpism” and Holocaust cartoon contests.
Iranian cartoonist, Hadi Asadi, winner of the top prize, got $1,500.

Ambassador Haley: US will block any appointment of Palestinian to UN post

Ambassador Haley: US will block any appointment of Palestinian to UN postUS Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley (AP/Andrew Harnik)
 Print  Email  78 Comments
The Trump administration will prevent any Palestinians from serving in UN positions until the US recognizes an independent Palestinian state, Haley stated.
US Ambassador to the United Nation (UN) Nikki Haley on Tuesday told Congress that the Trump administration’s policy was to prevent any Palestinians from serving in UN positions, unless and until the US recognizes an independent Palestinian state.
“If we don’t recognize Palestine as a state, we needed to acknowledge, also, that we could not sit there and put a Palestinian forward until the US changed its determinations on that front,” Haley told a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing.
In February, the US blocked the appointment of former Palestinian prime minister Salam Fayyad to lead the UN’s political mission in Libya. Though the post was unrelated to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the US described the move as an act of support for Israel.
On Wednesday, responding to a reporter’s comment that such a decision was “discriminatory,” the State Department stood by Haley’s remarks, tying the move to block Fayyad’s appointment to US concerns about “Palestinians’ efforts to achieve recognition of Palestine as an independent state through the United Nations system.”

Elite IDF troops kill armed Palestinian in shootoutThe Duvedevan unit in action (IDF Spokesman)
The IDF continues its operation to stamp out the Palestinian illegal weapons trade.  
The IDF’s elite Duvedevan undercover unit encountered an armed Palestinian on Wednesday night and killed him in a shootout.
The unit was operating in the Palestinian village of Jabel Jooar, in the Hebron area, to locate illegal weapons when the soldiers encountered an armed Palestinian who opened fire on them. In response to the immediate threat, the IDF forces fired back and killed him. His weapon was recovered.
Similarly, on Wednesday IDF forces sealed a Palestinian workshop located in Abu Dis, east of Jerusalem. The workshop was used to produce illegal weapons.
These weapon busts are the latest among dozens of successful operations carried out by Israeli forces to stem the flow of illegal weapons traded by Palestinians.
Since the beginning of 2016, in a special effort to stop prolific Palestinian weapons production, Israeli forces have shut some 45 plants in the Judea and Samaria region and seized over 50 gun-producing machines, and at least 450 weapons.

Israel pressures Hamas to release captive and remains of IDF soldiersHadar Goldin (L) and Oron Shaul. (Social media)
Israel stops family visits for 1200 Hamas prisoners in an effort to redeem an Israeli citizen and the bodies of two IDF soldiers. 
OnThursday, Israel denied family visits to approximately 1200 Hamas prisoners in order to pressure Gaza’s Islamist rulers to release Israeli citizen Abera Mengistu and return the bodies of two IDF soldiers. The soldiers were killed by Hamas during the 2014 Protective Edge military campaign in Gaza.
Israel’s Prison Service (IPS) declined to comment on the decision.
Hamas Prisoners’ Affairs Ministry rejected the decision, describing it as “punishment” and “a declaration of war against the prisoners.” The Gaza-based terrorist regime pledged it would challenge Israel’s decision “whatever the cost.”
Lt. Hadar Goldin’s family reacted by saying that changing the hostage equation was long overdue.
“For over two years, we have been demanding the Israeli government act to cancel family visits and improved conditions for Hamas prisoners in Israeli jails. The family believes the equation must be changed on the issue of hostages, with pressure put on Hamas to lead it to the realization keeping hostages is a burden, not an asset.” Alongside his comrade Oron Shaul, IDF soldier Hadar Goldin was killed when Hamas violated an internationally negotiated ceasefire during the Gaza War in 2014.

Germany withdraws from billion-dollar drone deal with Israel due to its offensive capabilities
Germany cancelled a billion-dollar drone leasing deal with Israel due to the advanced Heron-2 drones’ offensive capabilities. The decision comes one week after German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s coalition partner, the Socialist Democratic Party (SPD), threatened to undermine the deal of leasing sophisticated drones from Israel Aerospace Industries. German parliament members voiced disappointment after learning Heron or “Eitan” drones have offensive capabilities.
Last year, when the deal was made public, Germany’s Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen embraced the fact that the Israeli drones can be armed, saying that “it is important for the protection of soldiers.” However, the German SPD Party, which sank the deal, is ideologically opposed to preemptive targeted drone strikes

In its last effort to uproot ISIS from Mosul, Iraqi forces achieved a symbolic victory by taking a landmark mosque in the city’s center. 
Iraqi forces on Thursday captured the compound of a landmark mosque in Mosul that was blown up last week by the Islamic State (ISIS) terror group — a hugely symbolic site from where the top ISIS leader declared an Islamic “caliphate” nearly three years ago.
The advance comes as Iraqi troops push deeper into the Old City, a densely populated neighborhood west of the Tigris River, where the al-Nouri Mosque with its 12th century al-Hadba minaret once stood, and where the ISIS terrorists now make their last stand in what are expected to be the final days of the battle for Mosul, Iraq’s second-largest city.
Iraqi special forces reached the al-Nuri Mosque compound and took control of the surrounding streets on Thursday afternoon, following a dawn push into the area, Lt. Gen. Abdul Wahab al-Saadi of the elite force told The Associated Press.
Damaged and destroyed houses dot the route Iraqi forces have carved into the congested district — along a landscape of destruction where the stench of rotting bodies rises from under the rubble.
Thursday’s push comes more than a week after Iraqi forces launched the operation to retake Mosul’s last ISIS-held parts of the Old City neighborhood, with its narrow alleyways and dense clusters of homes.
Taking the mosque is a symbolic victory — from its pulpit, ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in July 2014 declared a self-styled Islamic “caliphate,” encompassing territories then-held by the Islamic State group in Syria and Iraq.

Former PM Olmert, imprisoned for corruption, granted early releaseFormer Prime Minister Ehud Olmert (Amit Shabi/POOL)
Olmert will go home on Sunday after serving two thirds of his term. He was serving time  for bribery and obstruction of justice.
Israel’s former Prime Minister, Ehud Olmert, who is serving a 27-month prison sentence in Matisyahu Prison for bribery and obstruction of justice, was released by the parole board of Israel’s Prison Service on Thursday and will go home on Sunday, after serving 16 months of his term.
The State Attorney’s Office asked the court to delay implementing the decision to release Olmert, but it is unclear where they intend to take the case.
Olmert became the first Israeli premier to be imprisoned after a years-long legal saga relating to five corruption cases that forced him to resign in 2009, while serving as Israel’s leader.
Olmert, 71, was convicted in March 2014 in a wide-ranging case that accused him of accepting bribes to promote a controversial real-estate project in Jerusalem. The charges pertained to a period when he was mayor of Jerusalem and trade minister, years before he became prime minister in 2006.
Later in September 2016, Olmert was convicted of unlawfully receiving funds for private use from American Jewish businessman Morris Talansky.

Boston’s Holocaust memorial was vandalized, sending shockwaves through the community. 
Boston Police arrested a man suspected of using a rock to vandalize and shatter one of the panels of the New England Holocaust Memorial early Wednesday.
The suspect, James Isaac, 21, was charged by police with malicious destruction of personal property and destruction of a memorial place.
Isacc’s court-appointed attorney, Rebecca Kozak, entered a not-guilty plea on his behalf, saying he suffers from mental health issues, is “struggling considerably” and is participating in a partial hospitalization program at a mental health facility.
Isaac was held on $750 bail, but it was then revoked and he was held for violating the terms of his probation in other pending cases.
The vandalism “will not be tolerated in Boston,” said Boston Mayor Marty Walsh. “Together with the Boston police, we will make sure anyone involved in this act will be held responsible.”
“As a city we stand with the Jewish community,” Walsh stated at the memorial later in the morning.

Hamas constructs new buffer zone between Gaza and Egypt

 Print  Email  1 Comment
Hamas has announced construction of a buffer zone along its border with Egypt.
On Wednesday, the interior ministry in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip said it will start building a buffer zone on the Gaza-Egypt border after reaching an agreement with Cairo. The purpose is allegedly to bolster border security and improve ties with the Egyptian government.
The buffer zone will be a closed-off military area along the southern portion of the Gaza-Sinai border. It will measure 12 kilometers in length and 100 meters in width into the Gaza Strip. Observation towers, lighting and cameras will be used to provide improved border control.
Hamas Security Chief Tawfiq Abu Naim confirmed that the project is the result of a recent understanding between the Gaza-based terror group and Egypt. Specific stated goals are to improve the monitoring of the border area in order to prevent infiltration and smuggling. However, it remains unclear how the Hamas tunnels underneath the Gaza-Sinai border would be affected by the new construction plans.
Abu Naim stressed the importance of cooperation with his Egyptian counterparts.
“The message to the Egyptian side is a calming one: Egyptian national security is part of Palestinian national security, and we will not let the peace along the southern border be disturbed,” he stated.
An unnamed Egyptian official informed Haaretz that the situation in Gaza is of great importance to Egypt’s national security and that Egypt is in constant dialogue with Hamas.
Haaretz reported that according to information from sources in Gaza, many families will be forced to move out of the border area.
Two weeks ago, new Hamas Prime Minister Yahya Sinwar traveled with a delegation of senior officials for talks with Egyptian intelligence representatives in Cairo.

Netanyahu: Israel will be Here Long After Iranian Regime Disappears
“We were here in this country for thousands of years before the Ayatollahs took the Iranian people hostage, and we will be here long after their theocratic tyranny becomes a footnote in history,” Netanyahu stated.
Israel will live on long after Iran’s theocracy has disappeared, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told thousands of Jews during Birthright-Israel’s annual Mega Event in Rishon Letzion on Sunday night.
“Maybe the Iranians need to learn Jewish history, since last week in Tehran they set up a digital clock counting down the time to Israel’s destruction” said Netanyahu.
“We were here in this country for thousands of years before the Ayatollahs took the Iranian people hostage, and we will be here long after their theocratic tyranny becomes a footnote in history,” the prime minister underscored.
Last week, Iranians burned Israeli and American flags and unveiled an “Israel Doomsday Clock” in Tehran’s Palestinian Square during festivities marking al-Quds Day. The clock predicts Israel’s demise by 2040; the date refers to a September 2015 speech by Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, asserting that Israel will “not see the end of these 25 years.”
Netanyahu said that Israel is a strong country with the ability and willingness to defend itself from threats as well as to reach out in peace to those who wish for it.
Students could hold their heads high while expressing their support for Israel, he added. “When they attack us, stand proud and say whose side you are on: The free people of Israel or those chopping off heads? If you stand for the free, stand for Israel, stand for the truth.”

Iran Sets Up Clock Counting Down to Israel’s Destruction
Iran has begun its 25-year countdown to Israel’s destruction, preferably at its own hands.  
Iran unveiled a digital clock in Tehran’s center counting down the days to what it says will be the destruction of Israel in 2040.
The event took place as part of the annual al-Quds Day celebration, during which millions of Iranians marched under the banner, “Death to Israel, Death to America.”
The timeframe appears to stem from comments made in 2015 by Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who vowed there will be “nothing” left of Israel by the year 2040, the UK’s Independent reported.
In September 2015, Khamenei proclaimed, “You [Israelis] will not see the coming 25 years and, God willing, there will not be something named the Zionist regime in next 25 years.”
He later tweeted in broken English that Israel “will not see next 25 years; God willing, there will be nothing as Zionist regime by next 25 years. Secondly, until then, struggling, heroic and jihadi morale will leave no moment of serenity for Zionists.”
Khamenei calls for Israel’s destruction almost on a weekly basis.
The display was set up in Tehran’s Palestine Square, and local media reported that more than one million people participated in the anti-Israel demonstration. President Hassan Rouhani and Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani were among the officials present.
“Israel is the most malignant terrorist in history. [Israel is the] mother of terrorism,” Larijani stated, according to Iran’s Tasnim News Agency.
Iran staunchly supports terrorist groups seeking to annihilate the State of Israel, including Hamas and Hezbollah.
Iran’s Revolutionary Guard (IRGC) on Friday displayed three surface-to-surface ballistic missiles, including the Zolfaghar — the type that Iran used last week to target the Islamic State group in Syria. Another missile on display was the Ghadr, with a range of 2,000 kilometers (1,250 miles) that can reach both Israel and US bases in the region. Iran has repeatedly threatened to use its missiles against Israel.

Facebook Refuses to Block Holocaust Denial
 June 26, 2017
Facebook Refuses to Block Holocaust DenialFacebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg (AP/Steven Senne)
Facebook will not block Holocaust-denying content on its platform in countries where it remains legal, saying it is merely the expression of an opinion.  
Facebook will continue to allow Holocaust-denying content on its platform in countries where Holocaust denial is legal, a Facebook executive announced.
Israel’s NRG news reported Monday that Facebook’s head of policy in Israel, Jordana Cutler, in a letter to Member of Knesset (MK) Uri Maklev, wrote that Holocaust denial is illegal in Israel, and therefore such content is blocked for Israeli users as well as in other countries where it is illegal. However, where Holocaust denial is permitted, the social media platform will not block the content.
In the letter to Maklev, chairman of the Knesset’s committee on Science and Technology, Cutler explained that Facebook’s policy is to follow the lead of local governments and law, and that Holocaust denial will be available in several countries, even though it is “disturbing content.”
Facebook opposes many opinions expressed on its platform, she said. Furthermore, while Holocaust denial is based on lies, Facebook enables a discourse that could refute these historical fallacies.

Israel Faces Battle for Jerusalem and Hebron at UN Conference 
Israel will face another two Arab-sponsored UNESCO resolutions attempting to erase the Jewish ties to the Land of Israel.
Israel will find itself fighting on two fronts at the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage Committee annual assembly in Poland next week after Jordan put forward a motion to keep the Old City of Jerusalem on its list of endangered sites. Another motion will seek to have the Old City of Hebron – including the Tomb of the Patriarchs – added to the list and registered under the “State of Palestine.”
The wording of the resolution on Jerusalem has been watered down from a similar one passed last year which made no mention of Jewish ties to the site. However it still attacks  Israel for “persistent excavations, tunneling, works, projects and other illegal practices in East Jerusalem, particularly in and around the Old City of Jerusalem, which are illegal under international law.”
The international body also cites Israel’s refusal to allow UNESCO to appoint a permanent representative to be stationed in eastern Jerusalem.
A Shift in Diplomacy?
Diplomatic sources said that the softening of the resolution was a result of more and more countries supporting Israel, rather than automatically backing the Palestinian position.
“The softening of the text does not stem from a love of Israel or from a change of heart of the Palestinians and their partners but because of growing pressure on them and the results of recent votes, which from their point of view are disastrous,” said Israel’s ambassador to UNESCO Carmel Shama Hacohen.,
The previous vote on Jerusalem passed by 10-2 with 8 against and one no-show.

Technology Revolution Prepares IDF for Breakthrough High-Tech Combat 
The IDF is upgrading its integrated systems in order to face 21st century high-tech combat in the Middle East.
In the not too distant future, an Israel Defense Forces (IDF) battalion commander may stare out at the urban sprawl of a Gazan neighborhood. As he surveys the residential buildings, the locations of enemy terrorists hiding in apartments will be visible, marked in red by the augmented reality (AR) military glasses he’s wearing.
On the third floor of a building, he will see a hostile combatant crouching and pointing a shoulder-fired missile at him. On the fifth floor, he will know two snipers are lying in wait. Behind the building enemy mortar launchers hide, and the path leading to the structure is booby trapped with explosives.
The battalion commander will pass on the coordinates of these threats to Israel Air Force (IAF) aircraft hovering overhead, which will promptly destroy the targets.
The commander may receive an incoming alert message on his eye wear; a terrorist cell is spotted moving in his direction from the Gazan coastline. With the push of a button on the screen of a tablet-like device, the commander could order an Israel Navy missile ship, waiting in the sea, tens of miles away to launch a precision strike on the target.
And then the commander will lead his soldiers forward.
This is a fictional scenario today, but it could become reality soon, thanks to the high-tech revolution of the IDF’s network-centered warfare (NCW).

Netanyahu: Every Jew Can Pray at the Western Wall 
Netanyahu says the controversial government decision to maintain the status quo at the Western Wall does not alter the fact that Jews from all streams are free to pray at their holy site.
Cabinet Secretary Tzachi Braverman clarified the Israeli government’s position concerning prayer rights at the Western Wall following its latest decision on the issue, which caused outrage among Reform Jews and their supporters.
The Reform movement had won approval for an upgrade of its area in the Western Wall plaza so it would have the same status as the traditional, separate male and female prayer sections. Due to opposition from ultra-orthodox parties as well as some members of Minister Naftali Bennett’s Jewish Home party, the government shelved the plan and decided instead to maintain the status quo for the time being.
“It is important to Prime Minister Netanyahu that every Jew is able to pray at the Western Wall,” Braverman stressed, explaining that the Israeli leader had issued three directives that have largely gone unnoticed.

Fearing Attacks by Hezbollah, Israel Upgrades Barrier at Lebanon Border 
Fearing that Hezbollah might stage a ground invasion of the Jewish state and attack northern communities, Israel is building an upgraded barrier at the border with Lebanon.
Hebrew-language media reported Sunday that the IDF is expected to start construction of a wall on the Israeli-Lebanese border within the next month.
The initial stage of a new wall along the border with Lebanon will be built from Rosh Hanikra, at the northwest corner of Israel, running around 12 kilometers to Hanita to the east, and from Misgav Am to Metula.
The wall, the tender for which was published over a year ago, comes in response to fears that the Hezbollah terrorist group will stage a ground invasion of northern Israel and attempt to take over Israeli communities along the border.

A leading Polish human rights official has come under fire for saying the “Polish nation” took part in the implementation of the Holocaust.

The incident threatens to weaken Bodnar, who heads one of the last state institutions still independent from the ruling conservative Law and Justice party.

US Ambassador Slams Hamas at Ceremony Honoring Fallen IDF Soldier 
US Ambassador David Friedman blasted Hamas for refusing to return the body of fallen IDF soldier Hadar Goldin.
On Sunday, US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman attended a ceremony at Jerusalem’s Ammunition Hill Wall of Honor, where a plaque was dedicated in honor of IDF soldier Hadar Goldin, The Jerusalem Post reported.
The ambassador condemned Hamas for refusing to return Goldin’s body to his family. “The pain of [Goldin’s] parents is unforgivable and unspeakable, and we hold Hamas responsible,” Friedman stated.
“The United States is very clear that Hamas is a terrorist organization and a brutal and evil organization, and the US is committed to defeating Hamas and we’re committed to ending the suffering of Israeli parents – and any of those who have suffered from their acts of terrorism,” he said.
Friedman rejected the suggestion of direct negotiations with the Islamist group in charge of the Gaza Strip, saying, “I have no interest in [negotiating] with [Hamas] directly, but they will be defeated. I’m certain of that.”
The Wall of Honor is dedicated to Jewish soldiers who died while protecting their home countries. It was erected by the Jewish National Fund.

Muslims worldwide fast each day of the holy month of Ramadan, from dawn till sunset.
The Muslim calendar, like the Jewish one, is lunar, but it does not share the Jewish calendar’s leap years, which keep the Jewish months in the same seasons from year to year. Ramadan, therefore, falls in different seasons and this year it came out in June, making for particularly long fast days.
Nonetheless, Muslim soldiers of the Israeli Defense Forces stand guard during the long hours of the fasts, as do their Jewish comrades on Jewish fast days, such as Yom Kippur.

Israel bars UNESCO from Hebron
 June 25, 2017
Israel bars UNESCO from HebronOutside the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron (Chaim Blaycher/TPS)
Israel has turned down UNESCO’s request to visit Hebron, citing “politicization” of the holy site.
Israel has turned down a request by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to visit Hebron ahead of an upcoming vote by the organization to register the town’s Old City as a Palestinian World Heritage Site.
“As a matter of principle, Israel will not provide legitimization to any Palestinian political move under the guise of culture and heritage,” said Israel’s ambassador to UNESCO, Carmel Shama-Hacohen.
The Palestinian Authority submitted a request to list Hebron’s Old City, including the Tomb of the Patriarchs, as a World Heritage Site in 2012 – a process that could take years – but is now trying to fast-track the application by claiming that the site is endangered.
Shama-Hacohen described the Palestinian request as “tainted by politicization, lies and libel against the State of Israel and against the Jewish people’s connection to the site… the Palestinians have opened another front in the religious and cultural war they are trying to impose on us.”
UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee meets July 2-12 in Krakow, Poland, for its annual assembly.  Hebron’s Old City is listed on the agenda as ‘Hebron/Al-Khalil Old Town, Palestine.’

Israel bombed Syrian targets in retaliation to Syrian mortar fire, acting on its long-standing promise to respond to every incident – intentional or not.
IsrAel’s Air Force (IAF) carried out an airstrike against a Syrian military position in the Golan Heights on Saturday in response to 10 mortar rounds fired from Syria into Israel earlier in the day.
The mortar rounds exploded in an open space, causing no casualties nor damage.
In response, Israel Air Force (IAF) aircraft targeted the source of the fire, as well as two tanks belonging to President Basher- al-Assad’s army. The Syrians reported that two soldiers were killed and several were wounded in the incident.
Syria’s SANA news reported that “as part of the Israeli enemy’s continuing support for terrorist organizations,” Israeli warplanes attacked “service facilities and residential buildings” at the same time Jabhat al-Nsura terrorists were attacking the area.
The report said that the IAF launched the attack from within Israeli territory, “claiming a number of lives and causing material damage.”
An IDF spokesman tweeted that due to “the unacceptable breach of Israeli sovereignty,” an official protest has been filed with United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF), the UN force situated on the Israel-Syria border, which is tasked with maintaining the ceasefire between the Israeli and Syrian forces.

Amazon Removes Pro-Israel Book, Continues Selling Pro-Palestinian Apparel 
Amazon has again exposed its anti-Israel bias: Anti-Israel sales are approved, while a pro-Israel book is removed from the site. 
Amazon has removed a book proving that the myth of Palestinian peoplehood, history and culture was false, while continuing to sell pro-Palestinian shirts calling for Israel’s destruction.
The recently published book, titled A History of the Palestinian People: From Ancient Times to the Modern Era, is described as “the fruit of many years of research, during which thousands of sources have been meticulously reviewed in libraries and archives worldwide,” resulting in a 132-page history that draws one conclusion: There is no Palestinian people, history or culture.
“It is no doubt the most comprehensive and extensive review of some 3,000 years of Palestinian history, with emphasis on the Palestinian people’s unique contribution to the world and to humanity,” reads the description of the book, which consists of dozens of blank pages.
Th book sold hundreds of copies in only a few days, and it reached a remarkable ranking of 341 in the All Books category, a ranking of 49 in History, and was #1 in Middle East History.
Amazon has removed the title, apparently the result of an anti-Israel campaign.
The author, Assaf Voll, received a message from Amazon stating that “during a quality assurance review of your CSP catalog, we found that your book(s) are resulting in a disappointing customer experience. Indicators of a poor customer experience may include customer refunds and feedback. As a result, the following book(s) have been removed from sale on Amazon.”
Voll wrote on his Facebook page that he has no doubt that the removal of his book is the result of a consorted campaign, and that he has received hundreds of threats through social media.

Hezbollah Disguising Military Outposts as Environmental Project 
Israel has again warned that Hezbollah is preparing hostilities against the Jewish state under the guise of civilian activity. 
Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations (UN) Danny Danon presented new evidence to the Security Council (UNSC) revealing that the Lebanon-based Hezbollah terrorist group has established a series of outposts along the border with Israel under the guise of an agricultural organization.
The agricultural NGO, Green Without Borders, is funded by and operates on behalf of Hezbollah, Israel charges.
In a letter sent to UNSC members on Tuesday and published in the media Thursday, Danon explained that in April, a United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) patrol was denied access by a group of locals to an observation post flying the ‘Green Without Borders’ flag.
Danon included in his letter to the UNSC photographs of the observation posts and their locations.
“The well-documented proof of Hezbollah’s dangerous provocation verifies that Hezbollah conducts reconnaissance activity near the Blue Line [the UN-drawn boundary between Lebanon and Israel] and disguises it as civilian activity, in clear violation of UNSC resolutions 1701 and 1559,” Danon wrote.
He warned that “Hezbollah’s continued military buildup and destabilizing activities in southern Lebanon have serious repercussions on both regional stability and the ability of the Lebanese government to effectively control its country.”
“The international community cannot continue to turn a blind eye to Hezbollah’s flagrant violations of UNSC resolutions,” the ambassador continued. He concluded his letter by calling on the UNSC to demand that the government of Lebanon dismantle these observation posts immediately.
The IDF on Thursday released photos and a video of the Hezbollah observation posts. One video showed a pair of uniformed men climbing onto a watchtower on spots used by Green Without Borders.

Israel and India Boost Ties Ahead of Historic Modi Visit 
Israel approved a set of measures to further cement developing relations with India.

Israel and India are strengthening ties and will establish a joint innovation, research, and development fund ahead of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the Jewish state next week, the first by a sitting Indian prime minister.

In a sign of the warming relationship between the two countries, Israel’s cabinet on Sunday approved several decisions that will strengthen these ties, including expanding exports, deepening cooperation in agriculture and water, the establishing of a joint innovation, research and development fund, and an increase of tourism from India to Israel.

Speaking at the beginning of the Cabinet meeting on Sunday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that his “friend” Modi’s visit to Israel is historic.

“In the 70 years of the country’s existence no Indian Prime Minister has ever visited and this is further expression of the State of Israel’s military, economic and diplomatic strength,” Netanyahu stated.

“This is a very significant step in strengthening relations between the two countries. India is a huge country with over 1.25 billion people and is one of the world’s largest, growing economies. Ties between Israel and India are on a constant upswing,” he added.

Of the newly approved decisions, Netanyahu said they are “an additional expression of Israel’s enhanced international position in recent years, as we strengthen the State of Israel.”

Israel Continues to Lead in Global Innovation, UN Index Finds 
Once again, Israel has been recognized as a leading force in the technology sector.
Israel continues to cement its status as a leader of global innovation, the United Nations’s Global Innovation Index for 2017 has found.
For the seventh consecutive year, Israel topped the innovation index’s category for the northern Africa and western Asia category. The Jewish state ranked 17th overall in the report’s group of high-income countries, improving its standing by four places from 2016.
“Israel has shown improvement in gross expenditure on R&D and ICT (information and communication technology) exports, while keeping its top spots worldwide in research, venture capital deals, GERD (gross domestic expenditure on R&D) performed by business, and research talent in business enterprise,” the report said.
The Global Innovation Index surveys 127 economies, gauging standards from patent filings to education spending, aiming to provide policy makers with a comprehensive view of innovative activity that increasingly drives economic and social growth.
The index’s 10th edition, titled “Innovation Feeding the World,” was released Wednesday. The findings—co-authored by the UN’s World Intellectual Property Organization, Cornell University and the European Institute of Business Administration—noted a continued gap in innovative capacity between developed and developing nations, as well as “lackluster growth rates” for R&D activities on the government and corporate levels.
The GII 2017 focuses on innovation in agriculture and food systems.

Hungarian Jewish community protests glorification of Hitler ally

Jewish groups are protesting the description of an anti-Semitic Nazi-collaborator as an outstanding statesman by Hungary’s prime minister. 
The Hungarian Jewish community has voiced objection to Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s characterization of Admiral Miklos Horthy, the World War II-era leader who allied Hungary with Nazi Germany and who signed anti-Jewish laws between WWI and WWII, as an “exceptional statesman.”
In a speech on Wednesday, Orban called Horthy and other Hungarian leaders “exceptional statesmen” for leading the country after the disintegration of the Austro-Hungarian Empire after World War I.
Horthy signed the Numerus Clausus in 1920, which degraded the Hungarian Jewry into second-class citizens, as well as the anti-Jewish laws in 1938 and 1939 respectively.
András Heisler, president of MAZSIHISZ – the Federation of Jewish Communities in Hungary, said on Thursday that a man who led the anti-Semitic edicts must not be called “exceptional.”
“The anti-Semitism of the era under his name, which he also took on, cannot be put as an example for the future generations,” Heisler stated.
“The Federation of Jewish Communities in Hungary is following public activity ahead of the 2018 parliamentary elections with concern. We believe more progress would be possible if the contesting political parties would focus on the questions of the present and future, instead of evaluating Horthy,” he added.

Three times in a year shall all thy males appear
before Hashem thy God in the place which He shall choose; on the feast of unleavened bread,
and on the Shavuot, and on the Sukkot;
and they shall not appear before Hashem empty.
Deuteronomy 16:16 (The Israel Bible™)

Shabbat Inspiration
The Hebrew word ‘shalosh’ means three. Three indicates a strong unit or bond, as it says in Ecclesiastes (4:12), “A chain of three cannot be undone.” Perhaps for this reason there are three times a year when every Jew is commanded to make a pilgrimage to the Temple in Jerusalem and appear before God. This guarantees that he will re-connect with his Creator at least three times a year, ensuring that the bonds between them remain strong and will not be undone. Today, tens of thousands of Jews make the pilgrimage by foot to the Western Wall in Jerusalem. The Israeli climate often leaves these pilgrims tired and hungry upon their arrival at the Western Wall. Colel Chabad generously provides food and water for these pilgrims to alleviate their discomfort and allow for them to worship and pray happily and without physical distraction.

Israel will strike with ‘full force’ in war with Hezbollah

Israel will strike with ‘full force’ in war with HezbollahIAF Commander Major-General Amir Eshel (Hagai Frid/Courtesy)
“What we could do in 34 days during the Second Lebanon War, we can now do in 48 hours,” Israel’s air force commander said, urging “full force” in war with Hezbollah.
The commander of the Israeli Air Force (IAF) said that in recent years the IAF has significantly improved its offensive capabilities, and “what we could do in 34 days during the Second Lebanon War, we can now do in 48 hours.”
“This is potential power unimaginable in its scope, much different to what we have seen in the past and far greater than people estimate,”  IAF Commander Major-General Amir Eshel declared.
He said that  said that a war breaks out with Hezbollah, Israel must strike “with all our strength from the start.”
Speaking at the 17th annual Herzilya Conference held at the IDC on Wednesday, Eshel addressed the shared strategic challenges facing Israel and several other Middle Eastern countries.
“There is an unusual meeting of interests between Israel and other regional states in the fight against terror” he said, explaining that the IAF has developed methods “to act in a way that is effective and determined, while avoiding an escalation into war.”

Liberman: Abbas is pushing Hamas into war with IsraelDefense Minister Avigdor Liberman (Flash 90)
 Print  Email  12 Comments
Liberman says PA leader Mahmoud Abbas is seeking a war between Israel and his arch-rival Hamas by cutting off supplies to the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.
On Thursday, at the annual Herzliya Conference, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman warned that Palestinian Authority (PA) leader Mahmoud Abbas intends, in the long run, to stop all payments of supplies to Gaza and thereby provoke an armed conflict between his rival faction Hamas and Israel.
The defense minister stressed that Israel has no interest in an escalation of war with her neighbors. “I have no intention of initiating any military activity; not in the summer and not in the fall, not in the South and not in the North. Our objective is to prevent war and the only way to do that is through credible deference,” Liberman said.
Liberman said that Israel is caught in the middle of an internal Palestinian power struggle, which is causing a humanitarian crisis for Gaza’s 2 million residents who have to subsist on less than four hours of electricity a day.
The defense minister was pessimistic regarding the prospects of solving the crisis anytime soon

IDF: Hezbollah has forces in ‘every 3rd or 4th house’ in Lebanon

The Chief of Staff of the Israel Defense Forces warned that Hezbollah is using the civilian population in Lebanon as human shields, and their presence in the area is a violation of UN resolutions.
The IDF’s chief of staff said on Tuesday that the Iran-backed Hezbollah terrorist group has a presence in “every third or fourth house” in southern Lebanon, in violation of United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSC) 1701, which called for the removal of all armed groups from the area.
Speaking at the annual Herzliya Conference, Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot said that Hezbollah was ensconced in some 240 villages and towns in southern Lebanon, and remains the most immediate threat to Israel. He added that the Islamist group receives sophisticated weaponry from Iran, some of which is supplied by Russia.
Jonathan Schanzer, senior vice president of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, explained in July of last year that Hezbollah’s widely-reported tactic of hiding military assets in civilian areas would lead to mass casualties.
Reports emerged in 2013 that Hezbollah was offering reduced-price housing to Shiite families who allow the terrorist group to store rocket launchers in their homes. An Israeli defense official told The New York Times in May 2015 that the buildup of Hezbollah’s terror infrastructure in southern Lebanese villages meant that “civilians are living in a military compound” and that their lives were at risk. A few days later, a newspaper linked to Hezbollah bolstered the Israeli assessment

Turkey invests millions to return Muslim control over Jerusalem

Is Turkey hoping for a return of the Ottoman Empire to Jerusalem?
Turkey is reportedly positioning itself as a Muslim power in Jerusalem by investing millions of dollars in the Old City and the Temple Mount.
According to an investigative report, due to be published in full in the coming weekend edition of Israel Hayom, the Turkish government-funded Cooperation and Coordination Agency, also known as TIKA, has invested millions of dollars into 63 different projects “defending and strengthening the Muslim heritage and character of Jerusalem” since 2004.
Turkey has teamed up with Sheikh Raed Salah, the leader of the Northern Branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel, which was outlawed in November 2015, as well as with former Jerusalem mufti Sheikh Akram Sabri.  Both are opposed to Israel’s existence.
Another Turkish organization has contributed funds to transporting male and female Islamic activists, known as Murabitoun and Murabitat respectively, to the Temple Mount. Jewish visitors to their holiest site have been intimidated and harassed by these Muslim fundamentalists, seeking to undermine peace in the Old City, for years. They, too, were recently banned.
Among other activities, TIKA has invested resources in restoring the Ottoman Muslim archives on the Temple Mount, renovated the Muslim cemetery adjacent to the eastern wall of the Temple Mount, and been involved in numerous community-related work throughout the eastern sections of Israel’s capital.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has consistently supported TIKA’s work and condemned Israel’s control of Jerusalem, which he labels “an insult.”
Last month, in a speech at the International Al-Quds Forum in Istanbul, Erdogan urged Muslims to make frequent visits to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, located on the Temple Mount, in order “to protect the Muslim identity” of the site, the Turkish daily Sabah reported.

Russia considers retaliatory sanctions against the US

Tensions between Moscow and Washington increase as the Kremlin considers retaliatory measures over US sanctions on Russia.
On Wednesday, Russia said that it considers retaliatory measures and sanctions against Washington in response to a planned round of fresh U.S. sanctions on Russia over Ukraine.
“It goes without saying that the main principle of reacting to sanctions is reciprocity,” Kremlin Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov informed reporters.
“At our experts’ level, naturally, different variants (of Russian) sanctions are now being formulated and proposed.”
Sanctions is Washington’s response to Russia’s occupation and annexation of Ukrainian Crimea. The international community has overwhelmingly rejected Moscow’s claims to the contested semi-peninsula following a disputed Crimean referendum.
Peskov did not specify whether Russian President Vladimir Putin would refuse to meet President Donald Trump at the upcoming G-20 conference, scheduled to be held in Hamburg on July 7-8.
“Its a possibility,” Kremlin’s Press Secretary said. “Nothing has been decided yet.

A Jewish suspect was arrested regarding the desecration of a synagogue in Jerusalem.
Worshipers arriving at a synagogue in the center of Jerusalem on Wednesday morning were shocked to find was desecrated, with four swastikas spray-painted on the walls and three religious books set on fire.
Police and forensic investigators arrived at the scene, collected evidence and launched an investigation into the incident.
Similarly, police received several complaints of swastikas painted on nearby buildings.
A suspect was arrested later in the day – a 38-year-old Jew said to be mentally unstable and who reportedly committed similar acts in the past.
He was questioned by police and then turned over to the welfare authorities.
Several rabbis and spiritual figures expressed dismay at the vandalism.
“It is inconceivable that worshippers arrived at a synagogue situated in the center of the Holy City and encountered such difficult sights,” the Chief Rabbi of Israel, David Lau, stated.
“I was horrified to hear about the disturbing act of vandalism committed in the Lelov study hall in Jerusalem, Shas party chairman and Interior Minister Aryeh Deri said, Arutz-7 reported. “This is a serious attack against all of us. It is hard to believe that a terrible hate crime like this against religious Jews could take place in the heart of the State of Israel.”

Michigan: Man critically wounded in Islamic terror attack

Michigan: Man critically wounded in Islamic terror attackLt. Jeff Neville (Linkedin)
A man shouted “Allahu Akbar” before stabbing and critically wounding a police officer in the neck at a Michigan airport.
A Canadian man from Tunisia shouted in Arabic before stabbing a police officer in the neck at Bishop International Airport in Flint, Michigan, in an attack that’s now being investigated as an act of terrorism, federal and court officials said.
The terrorist, Amor Ftouhi, 49, of Montreal, was immediately taken into custody. A criminal complaint charging him with committing violence at an airport says Ftouhi asked an officer who subdued him why he didn’t kill him.
Authorities have no indication at this time as to whether the suspect was involved in a “wider plot,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge David Gelios. “At this time we view him as a lone-wolf attacker,” Gelios said. “We have no information to suggest any training.”
The criminal complaint says Ftouhi stabbed airport police Lt. Jeff Neville with a large knife after yelling “Allahu Akbar,” the Arabic phrase for “God is greater,” which is typically used by Muslim terrorists during attacks.
According to the FBI, Ftouhi said something similar to “you have killed people in Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan, and we are all going to die.”
More charges against Ftouhi could be filed as prosecutors take the case to a grand jury seeking an indictment, Gelios said. The Flint Journal, citing court officials, said Ftouhi is a dual citizen of Canada and Tunisia.
Neville, initially in critical condition, is now in satisfactory condition, airport police Chief Chris Miller said at a Wednesday afternoon news conference where the charge against Ftouhi was announced.
The attack prompted officials to evacuate and shut down the airport and add security elsewhere in the Michigan city.

Saudi Arabia: King reshuffles royal succession, names son as 1st heirSaudi King Salman (R) and his son Mohammed bin Salman (Saudi Press Agency via AP)
Saudi Arabia’s King Salman sent shock waves through the Kingdom when he removed the Crown Prince and instated his son instead.
Saudi Arabia’s King Salman on Wednesday appointed his 31-year-old son Mohammed bin Salman as crown prince, placing him first-in-line to the throne and removing the country’s counterterrorism czar and a figure well-known to Washington from the line of succession.
The monarch stripped Prince Mohammed bin Nayef from his title as crown prince and from his powerful position as the country’s interior minister overseeing security. The announcements were made in a series of royal decrees carried on the state-run Saudi Press Agency.
The all-but-certain takeover of the throne by Mohammed bin Salman awards near-absolute powers to a prince who has ruled out dialogue with rival Iran, moved to isolate neighboring Qatar over its support of Islamist groups and led a war in Yemen.
The prince already oversees a vast portfolio as defense minister and is spearheading economic reforms. He has become popular among Saudi Arabia’s youth for pushing reforms that have opened the deeply conservative country to entertainment and greater foreign investments as part of an effort to overhaul the economy.

Egypt supplies fuel for Gaza to briefly ease electricity crisis
 June 22, 2017
Egypt supplies fuel for Gaza to briefly ease electricity crisisEgyptian fuel trucks arrive in Gaza. (Abed Rahim Khatib/Flash90
Egypt has begun to aid Gaza in its power crisis; Abbas is upset.
Egypt has supplied the Gaza Strip with 1 million liters (220,000 gallons) of diesel fuel to address a growing electricity crisis, amid an ongoing control feud between the Palestinian Authority (PA) and the Gaza-ruling terror group Hamas.
Egypt’s shipment undercut a high-stakes campaign by PA head Mahmoud Abbas, who is trying to weaken Hamas by gradually reducing the flow of electricity to the territory he lost to the terrorists in 2007.
Gaza’s power plant shut down in April, after Hamas refused to buy heavily taxed fuel from Abbas’ government.
This left the territory with electricity sent solely from Israel, but paid for by Abbas. The electricity from Israel covered about one-third of Gaza’s needs, meaning Gazans were getting power for only about four hours a day.
In recent days, Israel cut the electricity flow by 40 percent, at Abbas’ request.
The output of the power plant, which resumed operations Thursday, makes up for the Abbas-initiated cuts, said Mohammed Thabit, a spokesman of the Gaza electricity company.
Hamas officials said more fuel shipments are expected this week, adding that 1 million liters can keep the plant running for three-and-a-half days.
Abbas has not commented publicly on the Egyptian shipment, but aides said he is upset with the country for undercutting his pressure campaign.

Netanyahu Starts Twitter War with Palestinians After Brutal Murder
 June 21, 2017
After paying a condolence call to the family of a young terror victim, Prime Minister Netanyahu took to Twitter Monday night no less than seven times to attack Palestinian leader Abbas for “naming yet another public square for a mass murderer,” decorating a terrorist’s home and generally “poisoning the minds of Palestinian youth.”
Netanyahu Attacks Abbas on Twitter

In an age where combating ‘fake news’ has become a top priority for those who claim to care about the truth, recognition that Israel is the longest-standing subject of fake news is long overdue.  
By Judith Bergman, World Israel News
Academic and media professionals, journalists and diplomats, governmental, non-governmental and international organizations have been rewriting the history of Israel – both ancient and modern – for decades, portraying Israel as an abhorrent state, guilty of the lowest forms of crimes. The concerted and massive effort to denigrate a modern state – in order to criminalize and dehumanize its people in the eyes of the international community – knows no precedent, even though the people that brought the world the Ten Commandments has always been at the receiving end of hatred and vilification.
The Nazi and Soviet regimes represented the apex of that hatred of the Jews in modern times. Today, anti-Jewish hatred has merely shifted its focus to the modern state of Israel, conveniently disguising itself as ‘anti-Zionism’, which is not, as is often claimed by its defenders, ‘legitimate criticism of Israel’, but simply a crude denial of the Jewish people’s right to self-determination.
What the anti-Zionists wish to deny the Jews they ache to richly bestow on the Palestinian Arabs, who do not constitute a separate people to begin with, but are an indistinguishable part of the Arab world, which has at its disposal 22 sovereign Arab states already, covering a territory of more than 13 million square meters (corresponding to 500 times the size of Israel or one and a half times the size of the United States). Palestinian Arab officials themselves have repeatedly stated this fact.

Abbas and Palestinians Support Latest Terror Attack
How does the public endorsement of terrorists who perpetrated the recent Jerusalem terror attack stand up to Abbas’s promise to President Trump to stop anti-Israel incitement?
By: Bassam Tawil/ The Gatestone Institute
For many Palestinians, the stabbing murder of a 23-year-old Israeli Border Police officer in Jerusalem on June 16 is an act of “heroism” that proves that the “revolution against the Zionist entity will continue until the liberation of Palestine, from the (Mediterranean) sea to the (Jordan) river.”
For many Palestinians, the three terrorists who murdered the young woman, Hadas Malka, are “heroes” and “martyrs” who will be rewarded by Allah in Paradise.
Mahmoud Abbas’s Palestinian Authority (PA), which is funded by Americans and Europeans, has once again chosen to maintain silence following a terror attack perpetrated by Palestinians. This silence of Abbas and his PA leadership, specifically their refusal to condemn the terror attack, can only be interpreted as an endorsement of the killing of Jews.
Moreover, in a move reminiscent of a demented Alice in Wonderland, Abbas’s ruling Fatah faction, which is often described by Westerners as “moderate” and “pragmatic,” publicly blasted Israel for killing the three terrorists who murdered the policewoman and wounded several others.

Report: Israeli-Arab lawmakers incite against IDF enlistment

Report: Israeli-Arab lawmakers incite against IDF enlistmentIsraeli Arab MK Aiman Odeh (Hadas Parush/Flash90)
 Print  Email  5 Comments
The Knesset will convene an emergency meeting to probe sedition against the IDF peddled by Israeli-Arab MKs. 
Israeli-Arab Members of Knesset (MK) from the Joint Arab List political party are violating the law by encouraging and assisting an organization that incites Arab youth not to enlist in IDF service, according to a new report published by the student Zionist organization Im Tirtzu.
The report focuses on Bladna, a state-recognized non-profit organization, whose activities include holding conferences, seminars and workshops dedicated to discouraging Arab youth from enlisting in the IDF or the alternative, the National Service.
Much of Bladna’s activities take place inside schools.
According to Section 109 of Israel’s Penal Code, one can face up to five years imprisonment if he “incited or induced a person liable to service in an armed force not to serve in it or not to report for military duty.”
The report explains how Bladna’s efforts to discourage the enlistment of Druze youth, who are liable for IDF service, represent a clear violation of the law.

Russia is threatening to shoot down US aircraft and has suspended US coordination after the US downed a Syrian fighter. 
Russia is threatening to shoot down US fighters flying missions over Syria after the US military shot down a Syrian warplane on Sunday.
Moscow has condemned the US’ downing of the Syrian government fighter jet after it dropped bombs nears US partner forces.
The Russian defense ministry said in a statement that, starting Monday, it will track all jets and drones of the US-led coalition west of the Euphrates in Syria and treat them as hostile targets.
The ministry also called on the US military to provide a full account of why it decided to shoot down the Syrian SU-22.
Russia’s defense ministry also said it is suspending coordination with the US in Syria over so-called “de-confliction zones.”
The US and Russia, which has been providing air cover for Syria’s President Bashar Assad since 2015 in his offensive against rebel groups, have a standing agreement that should prevent in-the-air incidents involving US and Russia jets engaged in operations in Syria. Israel and Russia have a similar agreement.
The Russian ministry said it views the incident as Washington’s “deliberate failure to make good on its commitments” under the de-confliction deal.

More than 140 attempted terror attacks in Europe in 2016

Europe faced 142 attacks in 2016, with Islamic attacks responsible for the majority of fatalities. 
Europe faced 142 “failed, foiled and completed” terror attacks across the Continent in 2016, according to a new report issued by the European Union Agency for Law Enforcement Cooperation (Europol).
More than half of the attacks, 76, were reported by the United Kingdom. France reported 23 attacks, Italy 17, Spain 10, Greece six, Germany five, Belgium four, and the Netherlands one attack.
The attacks claimed 142 lives and injured 379.
Europol cited a number of significant terror sources, but called Islamic terrorism the “most serious” form, responsible for the majority of casualties.
While only 13 attacks could be described as motivated by Islam, Europol noted these were the most lethal and responsible for 135 of the 142 terror fatalities across Europe during 2016.
Some 99 attacks were perpetrated by ethno-nationalist and separatist extremists, Europol said. Left-wing terrorism was on the rise as well, with 27 incidents, mostly in Italy.
Just over 1,000 people were arrested for terror offenses last year. Most arrests were related to jihadist terrorism, for which the number rose for the third consecutive year: 395 in 2014, 687 in 2015 and 718 in 2016.
About 40 percent of terrorist plots in Europe are believed to be at least partly financed through crime, especially drug dealing, theft, robberies, the sale of counterfeit goods, loan fraud, and burglaries.
Some 40 percent of attacks utilized explosives, and authorities expressed concern that terrorists with experience gained in the Iraqi and Syrian conflict zones, under Islamic State (ISIS) tutelage, could also use drones, readily available on the consumer market as weapons platforms.
Also of concern was the use of terrorists disguised as refugees sent by ISIS to Europe.
Women and young adults, and even children, are playing increasingly operational roles in committing terrorist activities, the report noted.
