By David Isaac, World Israel News
The Jerusalem Post reports that Caroline Glick, a longtime columnist for the paper, announced Wednesday she will be joining the New Right party recently formed by Education Minister Naftali Bennett and Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked.
Glick, a well-known columnist with a large following, especially in the United States, is known for her staunchly conservative political views. She started writing for The Jerusalem Post in 2002 and also writes for Maariv and American website Breitbart. Her columns have appeared in Israeli weekly Makor Rishon.

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman revealed details of the Trump administration’s carefully guarded peace plan to the Palestinians, the London-based Al Hayat newspaper claims.
By David Isaac, World Israel News
Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman revealed details of the Trump administration’s carefully guarded peace plan to the Palestinians just ahead of his resignation in mid-November, Palestinian officials say, according to the London-based Al Hayat newspaper on Wednesday.
The report says the Trump plan calls for a Palestinian state in the Gaza Strip, and sovereignty for the population in small areas of the West Bank, as well as generous economic incentives.
Liberman met a Palestinian delegation two weeks before he resigned and said the U.S. plan, which President Donald Trump has dubbed the ‘deal of the century,’ would grant sovereignty to the Palestinian population, but not the land, though the report did not go into further detail about how that would work in practice.

By David Isaac, World Israel News
The Jerusalem Post reports that Caroline Glick, a longtime columnist for the paper, announced Wednesday she will be joining the New Right party recently formed by Education Minister Naftali Bennett and Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked.
Glick, a well-known columnist with a large following, especially in the United States, is known for her staunchly conservative political views. She started writing for The Jerusalem Post in 2002 and also writes for Maariv and American website Breitbart. Her columns have appeared in Israeli weekly Makor Rishon.
In her 2014 book The Israeli Solution: A One State Plan for Peace in the Middle East, Glick proposed annexing Judea and Samaria. She also called for a process that gradually grants Palestinians living in those areas Israeli citizenship. She didn’t expect Palestinians to jump at the opportunity and acknowledged that there was a risk to her plan.
“The prospect that, contrary to expectations, the Palestinians will apply en masse for Israeli citizenship, and that as a consequence Israel’s citizenship rolls will expand massively, is an important issue for policy makers to consider,” she wrote.
Glick served as assistant foreign policy adviser to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in 1997-1998 and was briefly considered by Netanyahu as a Likud candidate in 2015, The Jerusalem Post reports. But several of her columns critical of his policies caused him to reconsider, the paper says.
In 2000, Glick earned a Master of Arts in Public Policy from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.
Glick was born in Texas and grew up in Chicago before immigrating to Israel in 1991.
Last week, Bennett and Shaked dropped a political bombshell when they announced they were breaking away from the Jewish Home party to form the New Right.
According to analysts, the two politicians hope that by breaking away from the more religious Jewish Home Party they will be able to broaden their appeal and attract a wider range of voters.

By David Jablinowitz, World Israel News
Israel and Honduras have agreed to proceed with a plan to open embassies in Jerusalem and Tegucigalpa. The commitment is made in a joint statement on behalf of the two countries and the U.S.
Issued by the U.S. State Department, the announcement says that the three countries have “agreed to pursue a plan of action, which includes meetings in their three respective capitals to advance the process of the decision to open embassies in both Tegucigalpa and Jerusalem.”
The three-way agreement was announced as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez and U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. All three were in Brasilia for the inauguration of President Jair Bolsonaro on Tuesday.

“The decision by the president on Syria in no way changes anything that this administration is working on alongside Israel,” Pompeo told Netanyahu.
By JNS
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo promised that the United States would stand by its commitment to Israel’s security amid a planned withdrawal of American forces from Syria.
“The decision by the president on Syria in no way changes anything that this administration is working on alongside Israel,” Pompeo told Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during a joint press conference prior to their meeting in Brazil, where the two men are attending the inauguration of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro.
Since U.S. President Donald Trump’s abrupt announcement late last month that he would be removing some 2,000 U.S. troops in Syria, some Israeli officials and experts have expressed concern that the pullout would embolden its regional foes such as Iran, Turkey and Russia, while putting the Jewish state’s own security at risk. The U.S. forces in Syria are part of an effort to defeat the Islamic State terror group in the country.

There’s a new wrinkle in a story that Tuesday about Cleveland Clinic doctor Lara Kollab, 27, who has a long history of viciously anti-Semitic social media posts. It turns out that she attended an Orthodox Jewish college.
Kollab attended the Touro College Of Osteopathic Medicine, according to the Canary Mission website.
Canary Mission is a non-profit that exposes people who post anti-Semitic online rants, mainly college students linked to the radical anti-Israel group Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP). Canary Mission says Kollab supports SJP.

Tzipi Livni expressed her displeasure with Avi Gabbay after he dissolved the Zionist Union on Tuesday without first informing her.
By David Isaac, World Israel News
Tzipi Livni, chairwoman of the Hatnuah Party, blasted Labor Party chief Avi Gabbay Wednesday morning. Gabbay had ended an alliance with Livni without first notifying her of his intentions.
Livni appeared in shock as Gabbay made his announcement during a press conference from a podium on live television. She didn’t say anything at the conference other than that she would comment later.
“You saw a weak man who tried to make a turn,” Livni told news site Ynet on Wednesday.
“Everybody who saw what happened yesterday knows he isn’t a candidate for premier,” she said in a separate interview on Israel’s Army Radio.
Livni clearly felt offended by the fact that Gabbay did not tell her ahead of time before his announcement, telling Israeli newspaper Yediot Aharonot, “At least call me up, make a meeting, tell me ‘Listen, this isn’t working out, this won’t lead to success …’ I would have said, ‘Sure,’ shook his hand and organized a press conference with us together saying that this isn’t working out, in a mutually respectful way.”

By Adina Katz, World Israel News
Apparently in defense of an Arab student, a Hebrew University of Jerusalem lecturer berated a female IDF soldier on Tuesday for wearing her uniform to class.
The lecturer followed the soldier, who was verbally attacked by an Arab student, into the hallway and reportedly told her, “You cannot be naive and ask to be treated as a civilian when you are in uniform. You are a soldier in the Israeli army, and you will be treated accordingly.”
The soldier responded that she had no interest in discussing politics and that she was serving in the IDF to protect the State of Israel, i24 News reported.
After complaints from the student union, the management and lecturer – later identified as Dr. Carola Hilfrich, senior lecturer at the Hebrew University and founder of the Graduate Program in Cultural Studies – apologized.

By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Labor Party leader Avi Gabbay appointed former party head Shelly Yacimovich on Tuesday evening as his representative in leading the opposition in the Knesset.
The position was left empty when he ended his partnership with Hatnuah that morning, dissolving the Zionist Union alliance that he and Hatnuah head Tzipi Livni created before the previous elections.
Livni assumed the role of Opposition leader when Gabbay was voted in as Labor chief in July 2017. As he is not a Knesset member, Gabbay cannot fill the position himself.
Gabbay praised Yacimovich, saying, “I am proud of Shelly, an excellent MK who leads determined struggles in the Knesset and beyond. Shelly is an example of a public emissary who is committed to change.”

An Israeli NGO is warning of a war of attrition as Bedouin lay claim to large swathes of Israeli state land in the Jordan Valley.
By David Jablinowitz, World Israel News
Residents of Maskiyot, a Jewish community in the Jordan Valley, are warning that Bedouin are carrying out a “mass-scale takeover” of state land in the Jordan Valley. The Bedouin are from an illegal outpost adjacent to Maskiyot who have been served with demolition orders by Israeli authorities.
The organization Regavim says that the Bedouin from the outpost near Maskiyot are defying the demolition orders “thanks to the support they receive from the Palestinian Authority and a consortium of European organizations.”
Regavim, an Israeli NGO, pursues action in the Israeli court system against illegal construction undertaken by Palestinian Arabs or Bedouin in Israel, including Judea and Samaria.
The squatters at the outpost are accused of cultivating a huge tract of land, using heavy equipment, in an attempt to establish facts on the ground that will be hard to reverse.
“According to the system of law in force in Judea and Samaria, agricultural use enables squatters to establish certain legal rights to the land,” says Yishai Hemo, Regavim’s field coordinator for Judea and Samaria.
“In this case, as in others, despite the fact that the land in question is state-owned and is registered as such in the land registry, if the Civil Administration fails to enforce the law at the earliest stage, the result will most likely be a long, drawn-out, exhausting legal battle which the government often simply does not bother fighting,” he said.

Will UNESCO ‘learn a lesson’ from US, Israeli withdrawals?

Will UNESCO ‘learn a lesson’ from US, Israeli withdrawals?UNESCO Director-General, Audrey Azoulay (AP/Michel Euler)
Maybe UNESCO will “learn a lesson” from U.S. and Israeli withdrawals, former envoy says.
By Benjamin Kerstein, The Algemeiner
“Maybe they will learn a lesson,” a former Israeli ambassador to UNESCO told The Algemeiner on Tuesday as the Jewish state officially left the global cultural institution.
David Kornbluth — who served as Israel’s UNESCO envoy from 2005 to 2009 — said the country was pulling out of the body now largely because the US had scheduled to leave by the end of 2018.
“It’s completely in coordination with the United States,” he noted. “This is part of the reason also why it’s being done. Politically, it didn’t seem that we could stay in it if the United States is going, on our behalf as it were. Part of the reason they’re going is because of Israel.”
Israel and the U.S .stayed in UNESCO for so long, he stated, “because they believed that once you leave these organizations, it’s much more difficult for Israel to get back in than the United States to get back in,” but the worsening situation had finally forced their hand.
“It was bad then,” Kornbluth said of his tenure. “It’s really nasty being attacked all the time, but was more manageable. But things got worse and worse, it just goes on and on and on, and politically it becomes just a bit disgusting.”
Asked whether the withdrawals will force UNESCO to change its attitude toward Israel, Kornbluth responded, “Hard to tell. The Israel-bashing thing has been going on forever, but the United States is staunchly with Israel, and it’s quite true for many, many decades already that Israel relies on the United States in UNESCO for the air it breathes. So I can’t tell if it will have a positive effect. It will have some effect. Since the United States and Israel came out two years ago with the intention to withdraw, UNESCO has moderated itself a bit towards Israel, but not sufficiently.”

Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel wasn’t behind reported airstrikes in Syria on Tuesday night.
By David Isaac, World Israel News
“I had nothing to do with it,” was Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s abrupt answer when he was congratulated for “the liquidation of Hezbollah members” during a meeting on Wednesday.
Newsweek reported on Tuesday that a number of Hezbollah leaders were targeted in an Israeli airstrike as they were boarding a plane to Iran in Syria’s capital of Damascus.
The magazine also reported that several “Iranian ammunition supply points” were bombed, which contained the most sophisticated, precision-guided ammunition available to Iran’s army and Hezbollah.
Newsweek received its information from a source in the U.S. defense department, who it said had “access to the information from Israeli senior military officers with direct knowledge of the attack.”
Israel’s Channel 12 website Mako reported more details of the attack based on Syrian reports. It listed the targets as an air base in Al-Dimas, west of Damascus, used by Hezbollah, a base of the 4th Division of the Syrian Army in Sabura in the north of the country, and the 10th Division

A Palestinian Arab was shot while attempting to run down Israelis near Samaria’s Hativa Junction Wednesday morning.
Three Israelis are being treated for shock.
The terrorist was moderately wounded and taken to a nearby hospital.
The vehicle was parked dozens of meters away from the Huwwara checkpoint, near a transport stop for Israeli residents of Judea and Samaria, the Palestinian Ma’an news agency reported.
Israeli forces sealed off all military checkpoints in front of traffic, Ma’an added.
Coincidentally, also on Wednesday morning, several regional council heads boycotted a meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, claiming he had refused their requests to deal with the latest wave of terror attacks.

By World Israel News Staff
Titled “Christmas in Lebanon: ‘Jesus isn’t only for the Christians,'” The New York Times ran an article on Monday praising this year’s Christmas celebrations in a shopping mall in Beirut, organized by the Hezbollah terror organization, an Iranian proxy.
At the event, complete with an enormous Christmas tree and Santa Claus, “the Iranian cultural attaché stepped up to the microphone on a stage flanked by banners bearing the faces of Iran’s two foremost religious authorities: Ayatollah Khomeini, founder of the Islamic Republic, and Ayatollah Khamenei, the current supreme leader,” the Times reported.
According to the Times, “Few seasons frame the everyday give-and-take of religious coexistence quite like Christmastime in Lebanon.”
“Even Hezbollah, the Shiite political movement and militia that the United States has branded a terrorist organization, has helped ring in the season,” the report continued.
“Today, we’re celebrating the birth of Christ – and also the 40th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution,” Mohamed Mehdi Shari’tamdar, the cultural attaché, announced into the microphone, the article said.
The Blaze, a conservative American news site, blasted the Times report, saying sarcastically, “Oh, well, if they’re pro-Santa, they must be fine.”

Danon denies leaving post as UN ambassador to run in Likud primaries

Danon denies leaving post as UN ambassador to run in Likud primariesIsrael's UN envoy Danny Danon. (UN/Rick Bajornas)
Earlier reports indicated that the U.N. envoy was leaving his post in order to run in the Likud primary, which he has firmly denied.
By David Jablinowitz, World Israel News
Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon has denied multiple media reports that he was resigning from his post, hoping to run in the upcoming national election in April.
“On behalf of Ambassador Danon, the recent reports of his resignation are incorrect. After a decision is reached in the Knesset, he will announce his intentions.” his office said in a statement.
Before becoming Israel’s top envoy at the U.N., Danon had served as a cabinet minister, deputy minister and member of parliament on behalf of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud Party. He also served as a senior official within the party.
The 47-year-old Danon took on his position at the world body in October 2015. At first, he was confronted by the policies of U.S. President Barack Obama. These included a rare American green light, through abstention instead of a veto, to a Security Council resolution in December 2016 which declared that Israeli “settlements” in Judea and Samaria and east Jerusalem were illegal and demanded a halt to their construction.
At the time, Danon’s U.S. counterpart at the U.N. was Ambassador Samantha Power, who stated: “One cannot champion settlements and the two-state solution.”
However, after Donald Trump became U.S. president, Danon joined forces with Ambassador Nikki Haley, who declared that there was a “new sheriff in town” and decried the U.N.’s “bias” against Israel

Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely wasn’t disappointed after being passed over for the Immigration and Absorption portfolio, which had been up for grabs after the Avigdor Liberman-led Yisrael Beitenu party left the government in November. Instead, it went to Minister of Tourism Yariv Levin.
“My years in the Foreign Ministry are my best in politics and the future is still before me. Netanyahu called me and promised me that I’d be a minister in the next government,” she said, in an interview on Israel’s Channel 12.
What may also soften the blow is that Levin’s stay will likely be temporary – only until the formation of the next government following elections scheduled for April 9.

New Knesset law prevents early release of terroristsPA President Mahmoud Abbas welcomes released Palestinian prisoners and convicted terrorists to Ramallah, Oct. 30, 2013. (AP/Majdi Mohammed/File)
The new Knesset law “is an important precedent in the fight against terror and the effort to increase deterrence,” MK Oded Forer stated.
By World Israel News Staff
The Knesset passed a law Tuesday evening that will prevent the early release of convicted terrorists serving time in Israeli jails.
Proposed by MKs Anat Berko (Likud) and Oded Forer (Yisrael Beiteinu), the bill passed its final reading by a vote of 27-6.
According to the new legislation, security prisoners cannot be released for good behavior after completing only two-thirds of their sentences – unlike other inmates who show remorse and demonstrate their rehabilitation.
“A reduced sentence is a privilege that terrorists are not worthy of receiving. Terrorists are proud of their actions and therefore must bear the full consequences. We won’t stop working for our citizens’ security,” Berko stated.
“This is an important precedent in the fight against terror and the effort to increase deterrence. Now every terrorist knows that he has no hope of being released early,” Forer declared.

The prime minister tells the gathering that Israel has no better friends than in the Evangelical community.
By David Jablinowitz, World Israel News
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told a gathering of Brazilian Evangelical Christians on Sunday that they are the Jewish state’s best friends. Netanyahu is midway through a six-day visit to Brazil.
“We have no better friends in the world than the Evangelical community, and the Evangelical community has no better friend in the world than the State of Israel,” Netanyahu said at the event in Rio de Janeiro. The large Brazilian Evangelical population country is credited with leading the way to President-elect Jair Bolsonaro’s rise to power earlier this year.
Israel’s relations with Brazil are expected to improve under the new president. Netanyahu told the Evangelical event: “President Bolsonaro says, ‘We are brothers.’ We are brothers, and we are going to seize the future together.
“You know that President Bolsonaro’s first name in Hebrew is Yair, which is also the name of our son. But Yair means something in Hebrew: He who brings light. And I think that we have now an opportunity together to bring a lot of light to the people of Brazil and the people of Israel. This is an alliance of brothers. So I want to invite all of you next year in Jerusalem.”
Earlier on Sunday, Netanyahu told Brazilian Jewish leaders that Bolsonaro had informed him that he wants to move the Brazilian Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. He said Bolsonaro had pledged that “it is not a question of if, just a question of when.”

However, Shaked said that she opposed the idea of Israel’s attorney general filing charges against Benjamin Netanyahu two months before the elections, currently scheduled for April 9.
She refused to address the question of whether she would immediately withdraw from the government if the attorney general indicted Netanyahu. “I hope the cases will be closed,” she said.
“My opinion was and remains that until the final decision of the attorney general after a hearing there’s no need to do anything. If after the hearing it’s decided to indict then we’ll sit and think. We’ll learn what the charges are and we’ll decide what to do. According to the law, the prime minister can remain until the conclusion of the verdict,” Shaked said.

“We are aware of reports that a U.S. citizen has been sentenced by a Palestinian court,” a U.S. government official said.
By David Isaac, World Israel News
“The Ramallah Grand Criminal Court sentenced a Palestinian identified only by his initials I.A. to life in prison with hard labor after it found him guilty of selling Palestinian land to a foreign country,” Palestinian news agency Wafa reported on Monday.
The “unidentified” Palestinian is, in fact, Issam Akel, an Arab who holds American citizenship and an Israeli identification card. He had been kidnapped by the Palestinian Authority after being charged with helping to sell an Arab-owned house to Jews.
He was brought before the court on Dec. 23, according to the Wafa report, and sentenced for “selling property in occupied Jerusalem to Jewish settlers.”
“We are aware of reports that a U.S. citizen has been sentenced by a Palestinian court,” a U.S. government official said, according to the Arutz 7 news site. “When a U.S. citizen is incarcerated abroad, the U.S. government works to provide all appropriate consular assistance.”
On Nov. 28, U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman demanded that the Palestinian Authority (PA) release Akel.

Supermodel Bar Refaeli is expected to be indicted soon for money laundering.
By World Israel News Staff
Israeli prosecutors are expected to indict supermodel Bar Refaeli soon on tax evasion charges. The main charge is money laundering, according to the Ynet news site.
Refaeli and her mother, Tzipi, who worked as her agent, will be charged with hiding income amounting to millions of shekels, according to Ynet. The tax authority finished its investigation recently and passed along its findings to the attorney’s office, which checked the case and will submit charges soon, reports Ynet.
Refaeli and her mother have been investigated by the tax authority a number of times in the past on suspicion of tax fraud. The report says that according to Israel’s Channel 10, the investigators focused on the years 2005, 2007, 2009 and 2012, when Refaeli was the girlfriend of actor Leonardo DiCaprio.
Refaeli also was suspected in a 2015 tax investigation of hiding facts about her place of residence from an Israeli tax assessor. According to Israel’s tax law, an Israeli resident would be liable to pay income tax on all income earned abroad whereas a foreign resident would only pay taxes on income generated within Israel. The Tax Authority alleges Refaeli falsely claimed to be living outside of Israel to avoid the higher taxes.

By David Isaac, World Israel News
An anonymous “senior Israeli official” quoted in the Saudi media said that Israel had a chance to assassinate Syrian President Bashar al-Assad but chose to forego the opportunity, Israel Hayom reports on Monday.
The Saudi daily Elaph reported that the ‎Israeli official said the Netanyahu government rejected Israeli military intelligence recommendations to bring down the Assad regime, according to Israel Hayom. One of the ways it suggested doing this was by by ‎assassinating Assad, the report said.
The Israeli official quoted in the Saudi daily said that the reason Israel chose not to take this path was that “it preferred dealing with a known ‎adversary – someone it could use back channels to communicate with if need be,” the Israeli daily reports.
According to the report,  Maj. Gen. Aviv Kochavi, who was then Israel’s Director of ‎Military Intelligence, favored taking down the Assad regime. Kochavi is slated to become IDF Chief of Staff in mid-January. Kochavi wanted to remove Assad over his ties to the terror group Hezbollah, the report claims. Hezbollah is a proxy of Iran.
Iran enjoys close ties to Assad and has helped him win the full-scale civil war that has roiled his country since 2012.

“I think we’re in a pause situation,” Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said Sunday, regarding the pullout of U.S. troops from Syria, after meeting with the president.
By Associated Press
President Donald Trump has ordered a slowdown to the withdrawal of U.S. forces in Syria, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said Sunday.
“I think we’re in a pause situation,” the South Carolina Republican said outside the White House after lunch with the president.
Trump announced earlier this month that he was ordering the withdrawal of all the roughly 2,000 troops from war-torn Syria, with aides expecting it to take place swiftly. The president had declared victory over the Islamic State group in Syria, though pockets of fighting remain.
Graham had been an outspoken critic of Trump’s decision, which had drawn bipartisan criticism. The announcement also had shocked lawmakers and American allies, including Kurds who have fought alongside the U.S. against the Islamic State group and face an expected assault by Turkey.
“I think we’re slowing things down in a smart way,” Graham said, adding that Trump was very aware of the plight of the Kurds.
Critics had contended that the U.S. withdrawal would embolden Iran and Russia, which have supported the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
National security adviser John Bolton was expected to travel to Israel and Turkey next weekend to discuss the president’s plans with the American allies.

A civilian drone narrowly missed colliding with an IDF Black Hawk helicopter over a military base in central Israel, the Israeli military announced Monday.
The IDF and Israel Police are investigating the incident, which occurred Sunday night.
The drone, which operated illegally in restricted Israeli airspace, “dangerously approached” the Israeli helicopter, the IDF said.
“The IDF will work with the Israel Police to prevent security risks carried out illegally and against the aerial information security protocols of the State of Israel,” the army stated.

Israeli GAIA Automotive Industries Ltd. is officially establishing a presence in the Philippines after it signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with Stone of David Corporation last September for cooperation on the marketing and promotion of tactical vehicles, including technology transfer.
According to the MaxDefense Philippines blog, a GAIA official confirmed that the local branch, which would be officially named GAIA Automotive Philippines, has just been finalized. A local armored vehicle manufacturing and fabrication plant is to open in February 2019, it said.
This is after Stone of David announced in mid-December that its joint venture with GAIA won the Multi-Purpose Armored Personnel Carrier (MPAPC) and Accessories Acquisition Project of the Philippine National Police (PNP) Special Action Force (SAF).
In addition, MaxDefense Philippines confirmed, citing sources, that the Philippine Air Force (PAF) has chosen the SPYDER air defense system developed by the Israeli Rafael Advanced Defense Systems.
“SPYDER is a quick reaction, low-level surface-to-air missile system designed to counter attacks by aerial threats,” Rafael says on a SPYDER product web page

Moscow says the airstrike endangered civilian flights, but Israel declines comment over whether it carried out the attack.
By Associated Press and World Israel News Staff
The Russian military on Wednesday charged that Israel was responsible for an airstrike near the Syrian capital, and said that the attack had endangered civilian flights.
Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said that six Israeli F-16 jets launched the “provocative” raid at the moment when two civilian airliners were preparing to land in Damascus and Beirut, creating a “direct threat” to the aircraft.
Konashenkov said the Syrian military didn’t fully engage its air defense assets to avoid accidentally hitting the passenger jets. He added that Syrian air traffic controllers redirected the Damascus-bound plane to the Russian air base in Hemeimeem in Syria’s coastal province of Latakia.
Konashenkov said the Syrian air defense forces shot down 14 of the 16 precision-guided bombs dropped by the fighter jets, while the remaining two hit a Syrian military depot 7 kilometers (about 4.3 miles) west of Damascus, injuring three Syrian soldiers.

 Print  Email  5 Comments
Netanyahu reportedly sent a message to Hamas via Egypt, urging the terror group not to escalate the situation ahead of the upcoming Israeli elections.
By Yona Schnitzer, TPS
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has asked the Egyptian Central Intelligence Service to convey a message to Hamas’ leadership in Gaza, urging them not to escalate the security situation in the months leading to Israel’s general elections in April, the London-based Arabic daily Al-Araby Al Jadeed reported Thursday.
According to the report, Netanyahu warned the factions in Gaza not to escalate the situation in a manner that would “force his hand” to engage in a full-scale military conflict – a situation that could hurt him in the polls as well as jeopardizing any possible long-term truce, which the Egyptians are reportedly mediating.
Netanyahu was also said to have urged the Egyptians to exercise a more lenient policy in allowing residents of Gaza to enter Egypt through the Rafah crossing so as to not give Hamas any “excuses” to escalate the situation.
On Sunday, Hamas and the Islamic Jihad in Gaza warned Israel that they would “respond harshly” to what they described as the killing of Palestinian civilians in Gaza during violent riots along the border on Friday, in which four Palestinians died.
“The atrocious crimes committed against our people have crossed the red lines and the resistance will not stand by idly,” read a statement issued by Hamas and Islamic Jihad’s joint command.
Several thousand Palestinians took part in the March of Return protests last Friday, throwing rocks and incendiary devices at Israeli soldiers along the border and burning tires.

After London’s Gatwick Airport was brought to its knees by rogue drones last week, Israeli companies like Skylock are emerging as the first line of defense to combat the new airborne threat.
By Associated Press and World Israel News Staff
An Israeli technology company says its anti-drone system is drawing major interest after rogue unmanned aircraft sowed chaos at London’s Gatwick Airport last week.
With more than 750 flights canceled, over 120,000 passengers impacted, and tens of millions of dollars in losses, the incident was deemed a major security breach, notwithstanding the lack of casualties or damage to property that ensued.
The Israeli company Skylock is working to combat threats like the one that caused the Gatwick shutdown. Skylock is among a growing industry specializing in detecting and downing intruder drones by “jamming” them, or disrupting their frequencies.
The company said Tuesday it saw a 40 percent spike in inquiries into its product since the Gatwick episode.

By World Israel News Staff
The IDF has destroyed a fifth Hezbollah tunnel crossing from Lebanon into Israel as part of Operation Northern Shield, an IDF spokesman said Wednesday.
“We have just destroyed another Hezbollah attack tunnel that was dug from Lebanon into Israeli territory,” the spokesman said.
The tunnel came from Ayta ash Shab, a village across the border from an Israeli farming community. It violated Israeli territory.
“The IDF sees the Lebanese government as responsible for the digging of the tunnels and the consequences,” the spokesman added, calling the digging of the tunnels a gross violation of U.N. Resolution 1701 and of Israeli sovereignty.
The IDF launched Operation Northern Shield on Dec. 4 to seek out and destroy Hezbollah tunnels burrowing under the Blue Line, the border between Israel and Lebanon

Netanyahu’s party slams ‘false’ report he will stay in office if indictedPM Benjamin Netanyahu (Flash90)
The Likud party slammed a report claiming that the prime minister will not resign even if indicted, among other allegations.
By Jack Gold, World Israel News
The Likud political party, headed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, stated Thursday that a report by Israel Hayom, claiming that the Israeli leader will not resign even if indicted, is false
“The claim that the prime minister said such things is false because the prime minister has not spoken with anyone about this matter,” the Likud said in a statement, The Jerusalem Post reported.
Israel Hayom also said that the Likud had threatened to publicly target Attorney General Avicahi Mandelblit and focus its election campaign on him if he indicts Netanyahu. The party denied this allegation as well.
“No one in Likud is threatening the attorney general,” the statement continued. “The threats and pressure to release an indictment against Netanyahu, no matter the cost and no matter the circumstances, comes every day from the left and the media.”
The article further claimed that Netanyahu told confidants that Mandelblit would not indict him during an election campaign and that even if he did, the prime minister would not resign.
“The law is clear, even if an indictment is filed against me, I am not resigning,” Netanyahu allegedly said, according to Israel Hayom.
The article itself had two versions. The final edition cited sources within the Likud who reportedly threatened Mandelblit, while an earlier version attributed the threatening statement to Netanyahu himself.

Israeli government calls for early electionsPrime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is pondering his fate as he calls for an early election. (Flash90/Hadas Parush)
Israel’s government coalition decided to go to elections in early April.
By David Isaac, World Israel News 
On Monday, coalition leaders in Israel’s government voted unanimously “out of national and budgetary responsibility” to go to elections in early April.
Sources within the government said even prior to this afternoon’s meeting that it would decide whether of not the coalition would continue, Israel’s Channel 11 website reports.
The decision, if approved by a Knesset vote necessitated by Israeli law, would come just over four years after the last Knesset elections, held on March 17, 2015.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had called the coalition meeting in an unsuccessful effort to save his coalition by finding an agreement on a haredi, or ultra-Orthodox, draft bill. The bill concerns the Army enlistment of ultra-Orthodox Jews.
On Sunday, ultra-Orthodox members of the coalition expressed anger that they weren’t informed about renewed discussions in the Knesset committee preparing the recruitment law, Channel 11 reports.

Poll shows Israel’s Netanyahu cruising toward re-electionPM Benjamin Netanyahu (Tomer Neuberg/Flash90)
Notwithstanding a series of corruption investigations against the prime minister, a poll shows Netanyahu in a comfortable lead ahead of the newly announced April election.
By Aron Heller,  Associated Press
A public opinion poll published Tuesday, the first following the announcement of snap elections in Israel, predicts Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will cruise toward an easy re-election in April.
The Panels Politics poll in the Maariv daily showed Netanyahu’s ruling Likud party securing 30 seats in the 120-seat parliament and a majority for his current right-wing, nationalist bloc. Coming in second at 13 seats was the still hypothetical party headed by former military chief Benny Gantz, who has yet to declare whether he is even running. The established left and center parties lagged far behind.
The survey polled 500 Israelis and had a margin of error of 4.3 percentage points.
Netanyahu on Monday called early elections for April, setting the stage for a three-month campaign clouded by a series of corruption investigations against the long-serving Israeli leader. With the traditional opposition parties splintered, the only thing seeming to stand in Netanyahu’s path toward a fourth consecutive term is a potential indictment against him on corruption charges.

Once James found out the lyrics are indeed anti-Semitic, he immediately apologized.
“Apologies, for sure, if I offended anyone,” James said in an interview with ESPN’s Dave McMenamin. “That’s not why I chose to share that lyric. I always [post lyrics]. That’s what I do.
“I ride in my car, I listen to great music, and that was the byproduct of it. So I actually thought it was a compliment, and obviously it wasn’t through the lens of a lot of people. My apologies.

U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman and other officials have warned against releasing the plan during the Israeli election season so that the vote is not a referendum on the American proposal.
By Jackson Richman, JNS
The Trump administration said on Monday that the Israeli election in April 2019 could affect the timing behind the highly anticipated rollout of its peace plan.
“The upcoming election in Israel on April 9 is one of many factors we are considering in evaluating the timing of the release of the peace plan,” a senior White House official told JNS.
The date was announced on Monday by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Regarding the timing, U.S. State Department Deputy Spokesperson Robert Palladino told JNS earlier this month that:
“The administration continues to place a high priority on achieving a lasting peace, a comprehensive peace that offers a brighter future for both the Palestinians and Israelis. We remain committed to sharing our vision for this, and we intend to release the president’s vision when the administration has concluded that we are ready.”

“This most recent embrace of Turkey as a strategic partner in this ‘new’ U.S. policy should raise serious alarm bells in Israel and in the pro-Israel community,” Abraham Foxman said.
By Ben Cohen, The Algemeiner
Two prominent American Jewish leaders expressed strong concern on Monday over U.S. President Donald Trump’s declaration of faith in Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as part of his sudden decision to withdraw the 2,000 troops presently assisting Kurdish and Arab allies in Syria.
“This most recent embrace of Turkey as a strategic partner in this ‘new’ U.S. policy — relating to ISIS, Syria, the Kurds — should raise serious alarm bells in Israel and in the pro-Israel community,” Abraham Foxman, the national director emeritus of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), told The Algemeiner on Monday.
Rabbi Abraham Cooper — associate dean of the Los Angeles-based Simon Wiesenthal Center — meanwhile asked whether anyone could “seriously believe that Erdogan will block the land corridor Iran is creating across Syria into Lebanon,” one of the more serious long-term issues in Israel’s northern security theater.
“It’s difficult to fathom what it was that Erdogan promised Trump, and that is part of the existential challenge facing Israel,” Cooper told The Algemeiner.
Trump’s confidence that Erdogan will “eradicate” what remains of ISIS marks another dramatic turnaround in the U.S. president’s turbulent relations with foreign leaders. Just in August, amidst a dispute over an American pastor, Andrew Brunson, who was imprisoned in Turkey, Trump declared a steep rise in steel and aluminum import tariffs on Turkey, along with sanctions against Turkish officials. In response, Erdogan urged a mass boycott in Turkey of the U.S. electronics products, including Apple’s iPhone.

At Sunday’s cabinet meeting, Netanyahu reiterated that Israel will continue to act against Iran’s efforts in Syria and that cooperation with the U.S. will continue in many areas.
By World Israel News Staff
Israel’s efforts against Iran in Syria will continue notwithstanding the anticipated American pullout from that country, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at the weekly cabinet meeting Sunday morning.
“The decision to take out the 2,000 American soldiers from Syria will not change our consistent policy,” he stated . “We will continue to act to prevent Iran’s effort to militarily entrench itself in Syria, and if needed we will even increase our activities there.”
Furthermore, “I would like to reassure those who are concerned. Our cooperation with the U.S. will continue in full and finds expression in many areas: operations, intelligence and many other security spheres.”
U.S. President Donald Trump reportedly made the snap decision to withdraw last Wednesday during a call with Turkish leader Recep Erdogan against the advice of his top aides and without consulting his national security team or allies. Trump said that the only reason the troops were there was to fight ISIS and that the victory over the terrorist group enabled him to bring the troops home within three months.

President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw American troops from Syria was made hastily, without consulting his national security team or allies, and over strong objections from virtually everyone involved in the fight against the Islamic State group, according to U.S. and Turkish officials.
Trump stunned his Cabinet, lawmakers and much of the world with the move by rejecting the advice of his top aides and agreeing to a withdrawal in a phone call with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan last week, two U.S. officials and a Turkish official briefed on the matter told The Associated Press.
The Dec. 14 call, described by officials who were not authorized to discuss the decision-making process publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity, provides insight into a consequential Trump decision that prompted the resignation of widely respected Defense Secretary Jim Mattis. It also set off a frantic, four-day scramble to convince the president either to reverse or delay the decision.
The White House rejected the description of the call from the officials but was not specific.

Brett McGurk, the U.S. envoy to the global coalition fighting the Islamic State group, resigned over Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria.
By Associated Press
Brett McGurk, the U.S. envoy to the global coalition fighting the Islamic State group, has resigned in protest over President Donald Trump’s abrupt decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria, joining Defense Secretary Jim Mattis in an administration exodus of experienced national security figures. McGurk described Trump’s decision as a “shock.”
Only 11 days ago, McGurk had said it would be “reckless” to consider IS defeated and therefore would be unwise to bring American forces home. McGurk decided to speed up his original plan to leave his post in mid-February.
“The recent decision by the president came as a shock and was a complete reversal of policy,” he said in an email to his staff viewed by The Associated Press. “It left our coalition partners confused and our fighting partners bewildered with no plan in place or even considered thought as to consequences.”

IDF chief of staff: ‘Don’t exaggerate US troop pullout’IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eizenkot (Flash90/Miriam Alster)
IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eizenkot said on Sunday that President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria shouldn’t be exaggerated.
By World Israel News Staff
IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eizenkot said on Sunday that President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria was “a significant event, but it should not be exaggerated,” Ynet news reports.
“For decades we have been dealing with this front alone, and the IDF has acted independently in this area,” Eizenkot said. “We are working in the interests of the State of Israel, and the decision [by the U.S. to pull its troops] was made when the relationship between the IDF and the U.S. army are at their height.”
Stopping Iran
“The IDF’s main effort over the last four years has been to combat Iran’s aspirations to export its capabilities from Iran to Iraq, Syria and Lebanon,” Eizenkot said, Israel Hayom reports.

Erdogan: ‘Jews in Israel beat women and children’

Erdogan: ‘Jews in Israel beat women and children’Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan addresses a meeting of a youth organization, in Istanbul Saturday, Dec. 22, 2018. (Presidential Press Service via AP)
On Saturday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Israeli Jews beat defenseless Palestinians, including women and children.
By World Israel News Staff
“The Jews in Israel kick people when they’re lying on the ground. In fact, Jews kick not only men, but women and children as well,” Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told a meeting of the Turkey Youth Foundation, on Saturday, the Ynet news site reports.
“As Muslims, we will confront these people if they have courage to deal with us. We’ll teach them a lesson” Erdogan said.
According to Ynet, Israel concludes that Erdogan is turning to anti-Israel rhetoric to drum up popular support ahead of elections which will take place in about three months.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded to Erdogan’s comments on Saturday, Ynet reports.
“Erdogan — the occupier of northern Cyprus, whose army massacres women and children in Kurdish villages, inside and outside Turkey – shouldn’t preach to Israel,” he said.
Erdogan has frequently made comments attacking Israel. In 2014, he compared Israel’s operation in Gaza to Hitler’s invasions in World War II. And since he has come to power, there have been increasing signs of anti-Semitism in the country, causing Istanbul’s shrinking Jewish community to apply for citizenship elsewhere.

In response to Trump’s announcement regarding the rapid exit of US troops from Syria, Israel, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia are reportedly joining forces to address the Iranian threat on their doorsteps.
By Daniel Siryoti, Yoni Hersch, Ariel Kahana, Eldad Beck, Erez Linn and Israel Hayom Staff via JNS.org
Behind closed doors, Israeli officials were reportedly critical of President Donald Trump’s decision to pull US troops out of Syria. One senior minister called it a “horrifying moral and a bad diplomatic step.”
“The move does not serve Israel’s interests, harms the Kurds, strengthens [Turkish President Recep Tayyip] Erdoğan and will give Iran additional routes through which to send weapons to Syria,” said the minister.
Cabinet ministers and diplomatic officials have also confirmed to Israel Hayom that while Netanyahu said earlier this week that Trump had advised him on Monday that he was pulling U.S. troops out of Syria, and that U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had discussed the matter with him on Tuesday, the information was never shared with Israel’s National Security Council or the cabinet.
One minister told Israel Hayom that he thought Netanyahu might have been worried that cabinet officials would vocally criticize the American move. Netanyahu’s office declined to comment.
The Russian forces currently in Syria will take action to restrain Hezbollah and Iranian activity there, according to understandings reached by Israel, the United States, Jordan and Saudi Arabia with Russian President Vladimir Putin, a Jordanian official confirmed to Israel Hayom.
The understandings are the product of behind-the-scenes diplomatic talks that were underway prior to U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision this week to withdraw American forces from Syria.
According to the terms of the understanding, Russia will continue to give Israel the freedom to strike Hezbollah and Iranian targets and weaponry that threaten the “balance of power” in Syria. According to the Jordanian official, it was these understandings between Trump and Putin that paved the way for the U.S. decision to pull its forces from Syria.
Other high-ranking Jordanian officials have confirmed that Jordan, Israel and Saudi Arabia are working together to contain the threat posed by Iran and Hezbollah’s presence in Syria. Several of them emphasized that U.S. officials had made it clear that U.S. intelligence agencies would increase cooperation with Israel, Jordan and Saudi Arabia, particularly on sharing intelligence, in a joint attempt to counter Iran’s attempt to create a contiguous Shi’ite corridor from Tehran to Beirut.
Senior Egyptian intelligence officials say that unlike Jordan, Israel, Saudi Arabia and Turkey, Egypt was not advised ahead of time that America was pulling out of Syria.

The Hamas terror group claims Abbas’ move to eliminate the Palestinian parliament “opens the door to chaos.”
By Associated Press and World Israel News Staff
After Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas announced Saturday he would dissolve the Palestinians’ non-functioning parliamentary body, the Hamas terror organization threatened that the move would would bring “chaos.”
Abbas’ decision to dismantle the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC) “destroys the political system and opens the door to chaos in the Palestinian arena,” said Yehiha Moussa, a Hamas lawmaker.
Moussa says the PLC, where Hamas holds a majority after a 2006 landslide victory against Abbas’ Fatah party, expires only when a new parliament is formed after elections.
But the PLC has been idle and divided since Hamas seized Gaza by force in 2007 after a bloody coup and parliamentary elections. Its laws are limited to the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, while Palestinian areas of Judea and Samaria are ruled by the PA, which Abbas chairs.

Mattis stepped down after butting heads with Trump over the abrupt withdrawal of U.S. troops from Syria following two years of deep disagreements over America’s role in the world.
By Associated Press
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis , perhaps the most respected foreign policy official in President Donald Trump’s administration, will leave by the end of February after two tumultuous years struggling to soften and moderate the president’s hardline and sometimes sharply changing policies. He told Trump in a letter that he was leaving because “you have a right to have a Secretary of Defense whose views are better aligned with yours.”
Mattis went to the White House with his resignation letter in hand to meet with the president and spoke to Trump for about 45 minutes, according to a senior U.S. official familiar with the incident but speaking on conditions of anonymity to discuss a private meeting.
There was no confrontation between the two men, the official said, and there was no one issue that caused the resignation. However, the official said, Syria likely was the last straw for Mattis.

Iran is blaming the United States and Israel for Albania’s expulsion of two Iranian diplomats accused of engaging in criminal activities that threatened the small European country’s security.
The official IRNA news agency quoted Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi as saying “Albania has become an unintentional victim of the United States, Israel and some terrorists groups.”
He says the U.S. and Israel are working to destroy relations between Iran and European countries, and that Albania should not allow others to dictate its relations with Tehran.

Malaysia’s Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad criticized Australia’s recognition of west Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, saying no country had the right to do so.
Speaking to Reuters at an event in Bangkok, Mahathir said that “Jerusalem should remain as it is now and not the capital of Israel.”
“Jerusalem has always been under Palestine, so why are they taking the initiative to divide Jerusalem not belonging to them, but to divide the Arabs and the Jews? They have no rights,” the 93-year-old premier said.

Unofficially, Israel reacted with disappointment to the Trump administration’s decision to pull U.S. troops out of Syria. 
By David Isaac, World Israel News
While Israel officially accepted the U.S. announcement that it was pulling its troops out of Syria with equanimity, unofficially the reaction was grave disappointment, Israel Hayom reports.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was given a head’s up by the president and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo before the decision was announced, which was otherwise closely guarded and appears to have been made without consultations with senior GOP leaders.
The prime minister said yesterday, “This is, of course, an American decision. We will study its timetable, how it will be implemented and – of course – its implications for us. In any case we will take care to maintain the security of Israel and to defend ourselves in this area.”
On Wednesday, Trump posted a video on Twitter in which he said, “We’ve won against ISIS. We’ve beaten them. We’ve beaten them badly. We’ve taken back the land. And now it’s time for our troops to come back home.”

Prime Minister Netanyahu said on Wednesday that Hezbollah has closed down its precision-guided missile plants near the Beirut airport. 
By David Isaac, World Israel News
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the terror group Hezbollah has closed down its factories to develop precision-guided missiles, Reuters reports. Netanyahu made his revelation to a Globes economic conference on Wednesday.
“Those sites near the Beirut airport, the underground sites for precision conversion of missiles, which (Israeli) military intelligence gave me, to expose, those sites were closed,” Reuters quotes Netanyahu as saying at the conference.
Hezbollah did not immediately respond, according to the news site.
On Sept. 27, in a U.N. speech, Netanyahu accused Hezbollah of developing precision missiles in secret factories, three of them along Beirut’s international airport, using the civilian population of the city as human shields. The second site, he said, was underneath a soccer stadium.
Netanyahu held up a placard showing their locations, a picture he described as “worth 1,000 missiles.”

The expulsion of terrorists’ families, the bill states, “is a proven ‎deterrent that has the power to decrease ‎terrorist attacks and save lives.”
By Jack Gold, World Israel News
A bill that would allow Israel to expel family members of a terrorist from their home passed its preliminary reading in the Knesset plenum on Wednesday.
A majority of 69 MKs voted in favor of the bill, while 38 voted against it.
The bill states that the IDF will be able to remove a terrorist’s family from their town or city, or demarcate an area in which they are not allowed to enter, as a means to deter potential terrorists from carrying out an attack, a policy similar to Israel’s demolition of terrorists’ homes.
The legislation, submitted by a group of lawmakers led by MK Mordhay Yogev (Jewish Home), would give the GOC ‎Central Command the authority to relocate a terrorist’s ‎family to another area within a week of the ‎attack.

Responding to Nikki Haley’s push for Trump’s “deal of the century,” eight European countries and Russia insisted that only a two-state solution could succeed.
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
The European members of the United Nations Security Council and Russia warned the American administration Tuesday that any Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement must include a Palestinian state. Otherwise, they said, it will be doomed to failure.
The statement came in reaction to outgoing U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley’s last remarks at the U.N. Tuesday, in which she did not mention the words “Palestinian state” when discussing the as-yet-unrevealed plan in general terms.
The absence of these words seemingly did not sit well with France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Holland, Sweden, Belgium and Poland. They issued a joint statement stressing the importance of “the internationally agreed parameters for a just and lasting peace in the Middle East, based on international law, relevant UN resolutions and previous agreements.”
“The EU is truly convinced that a two-state solution based on the 1967 borders with Jerusalem as the capital of both states” is the only viable and realistic way to end the conflict and achieve a just and lasting peace, satisfying “Israeli and Palestinian security needs and Palestinian aspirations for statehood and sovereignty” as well as ending the “occupation” and resolving all final status issues,” the statement said.

Australia’s opposition Labor party has called for the recognition of “Palestine,” saying the issue is “an important priority.” 
By World Israel News Staff
Australia’s Labor party, headed by Bill Shorten, has passed a resolution urging the government to “recognize Palestine as a state,” the website news.com.au reported Tuesday.
This follows Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s recognition of “west Jerusalem” as the capital of Israel, which he announced on Saturday.
Australia stopped short of moving its embassy to the capital of Jerusalem, although earlier this year, the prime minister said he was open to the idea.
Canberra “will recognize east Jerusalem as Palestine’s capital only after a settlement has been reached on a two-state solution,” Morrison stated on Saturday.
The response from Jerusalem to Morrison’s statement was lukewarm. Israel’s foreign ministry described Canberra’s recognition as “a step in the right direction.” Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein, however, said it was “surprising,” adding that “a united Jerusalem, not just a part of it, is our eternal capital.”
Meanwhile, Australia’s opposition party has taken it a step further, calling for recognition of the state of “Palestine” notwithstanding the lack of a peace settlement.

Prime Minister and Defense Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday visited the Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) and was updated on the company’s latest innovations and developments.
“IAI knows how to reach anywhere for the benefit of the people of Israel. Decide and we will go anywhere we like. The sky is the limit,” IAI Chairman Harel Locker said during the prime minister’s tour.
Netanyahu also said that the IAI is developing “offensive missiles” that “can reach anywhere in the area and any target.”
Locker, IAI CEO Nimrod Sheffer and other senior officials presented Netanyahu with ways to “strengthen IAI and benefit the national security of the State of Israel,” a statement by Netanyahu’s office said.
Netanyahu lauded the IAI as “an accumulation of very talented minds and people here who are developing the cutting edge of the defense of the State of Israel, from micro-satellites that we will launch into space to missiles … Space is a huge sphere that the State of Israel is entering.”

The Knesset on Monday evening approved Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s permanent appointment as Minister of Defense.
Following a lengthy debate, 59 Knesset members voted in favor; 56 were against.
Minister of Education Naftali Bennett and Minister of Justice Ayelet Shaked of the Jewish Home party, who abstained in a vote in the cabinet on the issue, voted in favor of his appointment at the Knesset’s plenum.
Throughout the debate that preceded the vote, numerous members of the Opposition criticized the appointment.
“Today the prime minister will also become the defense minister, and he is also the minister of health, the minister of absorption and the foreign minister – so that’s four portfolios.” declared MK Ayman Odeh of the Joint Arab list.
“To these we need to add Case 1000, Case 2000, Case 3000 and Case 4000, so that’s eight portfolios,” he said, referring to several corruption cases against Netanyahu. “That’s more than Louis XIV: ‘I am the state and the state is I.’ I hope this situation will not persist much longer.”

Israel’s prime minister wants America to turn the screws on Beirut to help deal with the Hezbollah tunnel issue.
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Citing unnamed Western diplomatic sources, the Beirut-based Al-Akhbar daily reported Tuesday that Jerusalem requested from the Trump administration to pressure Lebanon into dealing with Hezbollah’s tunnel threat by threatening to withhold tens of millions in U.S. aid.
According to the report, Israel wants the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) to partner with the U.N. force on the border to locate and demolish the sections of tunnel that stretch within Lebanese territory.
The U.N. Interim Force in Lebanon, or UNIFIL, said Monday that the tunnels violate U.N. Resolution 1701 but that dealing with the tunnels is “beyond its mandate,” passing responsibility on to the Lebanese government.
Lebanese state media outlet National News Agency said Prime Minister Saad Hariri wouldn’t commit to destroying the tunnels, only saying that Lebanon would “conduct patrols to deal with any flaw in the implementation of Resolution 1701 from the Lebanese side.”

By Jack Gold, World Israel News
It appears Hezbollah is working to seal the cross-border terror tunnels the IDF has exposed in recent weeks as part of Operation Northern Shield.
Footage taken from inside the tunnels by the Israel Defense Forces shows a fairly new wall that was apparently erected by Hezbollah in an attempt to close the tunnel’s exit point into Lebanon.
‎‏The IDF has been analyzing the tunnels, using a variety of means, including photography and research capabilities to explore and fully understand the tunnels.
The IDF has so far exposed four Hezbollah tunnels, and the operation to discover and neutralize more of them is expected to last several more months.
The United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) has confirmed that the tunnels dug by the Lebanese terror group into Israel violate Security Council resolution 1701.

By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
For the second time in five weeks, the chairmen of the Knesset’s Land of Israel caucus called on Tuesday for the government not to renew the mandate for the Temporary International Presence in Hebron (TIPH), a civilian observer mission long accused of bias in favor of the Palestinians, after a revelation that the group has been working with a radical NGO.
Israel Hayom reported Monday that the observer mission has been running joint tours of Hebron with Israeli NGO Breaking the Silence for groups of diplomats and left-wing activists.
Breaking the Silence opposes Israeli control of Judea and Samaria. Most of its funding comes from foreign governments. In 2009, Amos Harel wrote in Haaretz, “Breaking the Silence…has a clear political agenda, and can no longer be classed as a ‘human rights organization.’”

Those who are still alive from the transport that occurred 80 years ago will receive 2,500 Euros, equating to over $2,800. About 1,000 survivors from the Kindertransport are still alive.
“In almost all the cases the parents who remained were killed in concentration camps in the Holocaust and they have tremendous psychological issues,” Jewish Claim Conference negotiator Greg Schneider said in a statement to the Associated Press.

“If Hezbollah makes a big mistake and decides in any way to harm us or to resist the operation we are conducting, it will be dealt unimaginable blows,” said Netanyahu.
The prime minister added, “Hezbollah thought that it could dig unhindered. We knew, we planned, and it did not leak. We maintained secrecy; we planned carefully. We are carrying out exactly what we planned but we are ready for the unexpected. There is great firepower here. We are ready for it and are prepared for it from all sides.”
Netanyahu also vowed that the operation “will continue as long as necessary, until we completely deny Hezbollah the tunnels.”

Hezbollah threat to Western hemisphere as ‘dangerous’ as ISIS, top US official warns.
By The Algemeiner
A top US State Department official on Tuesday warned officials from 12 key nations in the Western Hemisphere that Hezbollah — Iran’s Lebanon-based Shi’a proxy terror group — is “just as dangerous and just as close” as ISIS, the Sunni Islamist organization responsible for mass atrocities in Iraq and Syria.
“Despite its name, [Lebanese Hezbollah] operates within many of our own borders and far from the Middle East,” Deputy Secretary of State John J. Sullivan told delegates to the Western Hemisphere Counterterrorism Ministerial in Washington, D.C.
Among the countries represented at Monday’s meeting was Argentina – on two occasions the target of savage Hezbollah terrorist attacks during the 1990s. “In 1994, Hezbollah killed 85 people and injured hundreds more in Buenos Aires when it attacked the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association (AMIA) just two years after it had attacked the Israeli embassy there,” Sullivan reminded the delegates.
While Hezbollah has not carried out attacks in Latin America on that scale since the AMIA atrocity, Sullivan asserted that “several of your governments are still confronted with Hezbollah plots on a regular basis.”
Said Sullivan: “Just this September, Brazil arrested a Hezbollah financier in the tri-border area near Paraguay and Argentina. In 2016, Paraguay arrested another Hezbollah operative smuggling out 39 kilos of cocaine, whom we in the United States are prosecuting in Miami.”
The U.S. was similarly vulnerable to Hezbollah-linked criminal activities and terrorism, Sullivan added.

Ramallah, unlike Jerusalem, will not see the U.S. plan for a permanent Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement until it is unveiled.
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
The Palestinian Authority (PA) will not see the American peace plan before it’s presented to the world, Ma’ariv reported on Wednesday.
Ramallah, which broke off relations with the Trump administration after the U.S. Embassy was moved to Jerusalem in May, has reportedly offered to help in crafting the parameters of the agreement but was turned down. The report did not state when the offer was made.
This means that if and when the two sides return to the negotiating table, the Palestinian Authority will have the distinct disadvantage of not having been given any specific prior knowledge of its contents – versus the Israelis, whose input was requested.

“As long as I am the Prime Minister of Israel, not a single Jew will be uprooted from his home,” Netanyahu vowed at the dedication of a new interchange in Judea and Samaria. 
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
The only proper response to Palestinian terror is to build up Judea and Samaria, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday at the inauguration of the “Adam Interchange.
The new junction, located in the Binyamin region and built at a cost of over NIS 60 million ($16 million), will cut the congestion between Jerusalem and the Israeli communities in Judea.
Netanyahu noted “the depth of our enemies’ hatred of us, Jews and Israelis,” referring to the terrorist incident Monday in Samaria that injured seven people, including a pregnant woman who was seriously wounded and underwent an emergency C-section. The infant boy remains in critical condition.

Shira Ish-Ran, the 21-year-old pregnant woman seriously wounded in a drive-by shooting on Sunday evening, is recovering, doctors at Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem said Tuesday morning.
Ish-Ran, together with six others, including her husband, were wounded while waiting at a hitchhiking stop near the town of Ofra in Samaria.
The drive-by was caught on camera as gunfire opened up from a passing white sedan, sending those waiting running for cover. Some hid behind a stone memorial for a man killed by terrorists at the same spot a year ago.
Ish-Ran and the other wounded were rushed to Shaare Zedek. She was one of the worst injured and initially listed in critical condition.

A Palestinian terrorist is dead and another was arrested in two separate terror incidents Tuesday morning that occurred almost simultaneously. Another attempted attack was foiled Monday evening.
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
In two separate incidents within the same hour on Tuesday morning, Palestinian terrorists attempted ramming their vehicles into IDF soldiers in the Judea and Samaria region. One assailant was killed by Israeli security forces; the other was arrested. A third attack took place Monday evening.
In the first incident, Border Police officers fired at a Palestinian vehicle moving towards border guards in the village of Idhna, near Hebron. The guards were securing the safety of Civil Administration (CA) inspectors on a law enforcement mission. There were no casualties on the Israeli side, however, Palestinian media reported that the terrorist was killed.
According to the initial investigation, one of the assailants hit a CA car and then drove into a soldier, injuring him lightly. A border guard fired a warning shot into the air before aiming at the car, which kept moving. The driver, identified in Arab media as 27-year-old Omar Awwad, died of his wounds a short time later.
Meanwhile, another attempted ramming attack in the northern Jordan Valley occurred almost simultaneously while security forces were demolishing an illegal structure in the Palestinian village of Al-Jiftlik. A vehicle began accelerating towards the forces, who responded with fire. The driver was arrested.

A Dec. 10, Tablet Magazine story by Leah McSweeney and Jacob Siegel reveals that two leaders of the Women’s March swapped anti-Semitic conspiracy theories when they first met in November 2016.
“In the first hours of the first meeting for what would become the Women’s March … something happened that was so shameful to many of those who witnessed it, they chose to bury it like a family secret,” McSweeney and Siegel write.
Tamika Mallory and Carmen Perez, while getting to know one another, talked about the Jews’ “special collective responsibility as exploiters of black and brown people,” and that “Jews were proven to have been leaders of the American slave trade,” the Tablet authors write, citing a “close secondhand source.”

By World Israel News Staff
Australia’s Morrison government is expect­ed to formally recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital following a cabinet meeting Tuesday, according to The Australian news site.
Australia’s Conservatives website heralded the decision as “another great result for the Conservative Party which has been running a petition for recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital,” reported it was “unclear” if the government would only recognize the western part of Jerusalem or settle on a broader definition. .
A decision on moving Australia’s embassy from Tel Aviv may be delayed, however, the site reported.
“Sources confirmed that it was likely a consular office would be established in Jerusalem as a sign of support for Israel until the full embassy was relocated,” the Conservatives site said.
On October 15, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison revealed the possibility of moving the embassy in a telephone conversation with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
“I’m very thankful to him for this. We will continue to strengthen ties between Israel and Australia,” Netanyahu tweeted.

Zatraa, although he will only take over as deputy mayor two-and a half years from now, has already created a national uproar over his comparison of Zionism to the Islamist group ISIS. He also supports BDS and reportedly has discouraged minorities in Israel from serving in the Israeli Army.
A member of the Arab communist party, Zaatra has also declared his support for terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah.

By Jack Gold, World Israel News
A Pakistani man stabbed his former university lecturer to death in Paris after the victim allegedly “insulted the Prophet Mohammed,” the Daily Mail reported Friday.
John Dowling of Ireland, 66, was stabbed 13 times last Wednesday outside the Leonardo de Vinci University in Paris, where he taught.
The assailant, identified only as Ali R., 37, confessed to the killing and told police he “held a personal grudge” against the teacher after failing his exams last year. Ali was indicted for murder.
CCTV footage shows Dowling chatting with Ali before the assailant pulled out a steak knife, purchased at a nearby market, and plunged it first into Dowling’s throat and then into his chest.
An eyewitness recounted how students overwhelmed Ali, while one of them tore off his shirt to try to staunch the bleeding, the Irish Times reported.
Catherine Denis, the prosecutor involved in the case, said Ali harbored an “obsessive resentment” against the university for expeling him in September 2017, the Mail reported.

Prime Minister: We will not rest until criminals brought to justiceIsraeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (Flash90/Yonatan Sindel)
Netanyahu said, “We will not rest until we find these murderous criminals and bring them to justice,” after a terror shooting wounded six.
By World Israel News Staff and TPS
In the wake of Sunday night’s terrorist attack at the Ofra Junction in Samaria, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said, “We will not rest until we find these murderous criminals and bring them to justice.”
He added that “everyone is praying for the recovery of a young mother who is fighting for her life, as well as her baby. “We also wish a speedy recovery for all the wounded,” he said.
Netanyahu referred to a 21-year-old woman, who was seriously injured in the attack. The medical team at Shaare Tzedek hospital in Jerusalem succeeded in delivering the baby.
Dr. Alon Schwartz, a senior surgeon at Shaare Tzedek, said that the woman, Shira Yael bat Liora, suffered from “gunshot wounds in the pelvic area and abdomen. The woman arrived in critical condition, she lost a lot of blood, received blood transfusions, was stabilized and was taken to the operating room for urgent emergency surgery. She underwent a caesarean section and then surgery to treat her injuries. The baby is in the NICU [neonatal intensive care unit] and is being evaluated.”

Hezbollah’s Radwan Unit was tasked with leading the assault on the Galilee.
By Jack Gold, World Israel News
The exposure of Hezbollah’s tunneling efforts by Israel’s Operation Northern Shield has brought renewed attention on the “elite” Hezbollah force that would have let the attack through those tunnels.
The special forces Radwan unit is named after Al-Hajj Radwan, the nom de guerre of Hezbollah’s late infamous military chief Imad Mughniyeh, who was reportedly assassinated in a joint Israeli-US operation in Damascus in February 2008.
Hezbollah’s Radwan Unit is trained to execute raids and small unit tactics, including ambushes, assassinations, and operations that require deep infiltration.
The unit is secretive and is regarded as professional, able and tough, excelling in the art of clandestine operations, “the pride of Hezbollah leaders,” Arab media outlets say.
The unit has accumulated experience while operating in Syria and fighting alongside the army of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Its former commander, Hatem Hamadi, was killed in action in Syria in October 2016.

On Monday, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked called on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to make the Israeli town of Ofra in Samaria officially part of Israel.
She made her remarks in response to a drive-by shooting that left six injured, including a pregnant woman at a hitchhiking station near the town on Sunday night.
“The terrorists’ goal is to kill us in order to break our spirit. In the face of [PA President Mahmoud Abbas’s] ‘price of terrorism,’ we must set a price of our own: Every terror attack will strengthen the settlement rather than weaken it, and every potential terrorist will know in advance that the settlement will be registered in his name,” Justice Minister Shaked said.
The town of Ofra, founded in 1975, was one of the first Jewish towns established in Judea and Samaria after Israel conquered the territory in the Six Day War in 1967. It includes 700 homes, of which 500 face legal issues, either having been built on private land or without proper permits, according to a defense ministry report.

IDF Spokesman Brig. Gen. Ronen Manelis accused the Lebanese government and Lebanese army of ignoring Hezbollah’s activity.
By World Israel News Staff
IDF Spokesman Brig. Gen. Ronen Manelis, lambasted the Lebanese leadership and the Lebanese army for closing their eyes to Hezbollah activity in the country, Israel’s Mako news site reports Monday. The IDF spokesman said Lebanon was in fact directly responsible for Hezbollah’s development to the north of Israel’s border.
Manelis’ remarks appeared in the London-based Arabic newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat.
“The continuation of this activity will lead to a deterioration in security and what will happen to Lebanon will be twice what happened in Dahieh in Beirut during the 2006 Lebanon War,” Manelis said, referring to the Shiite neighborhood in south Beirut which housed Hezbollah’s headquarters, destroyed by Israel in that war.
Manelis said that Israel is prepared to operate inside Lebanon and destroy whole areas, placing the responsibility not only on Hezbollah but also Lebanon’s leadership, its president, prime minister and chief of staff, according to Mako news. Manelis said they are shutting their eyes to the fact that Qasem Soleimani, leader of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, is sending order to Hezbollah from Tehran to act against Israel.
“Suleimani is sitting satisfied in Tehran, [Hezbollah’s Nassan] Nasrallah in Beirut and both are holding the Lebanese people hostage,” Manelis said, referring to the residents of southern Lebanon, where tunnels have been dug under their homes.

Israel sent a warning message to the Lebanese government demanding it act against the terrorist group Hezbollah.
By World Israel News Staff
Israel warned Lebanon that if Hezbollah doesn’t stop its efforts to produce precision missiles, Israel will strike the terrorist group’s targets within Lebanon, Israeli and American sources told The Wall Street Journal.
Israeli sources told the paper that they fear that precision technology Hezbollah is obtaining from Iran will turn their missiles into a far more deadly arsenal.
According to the Journal report yesterday, Israel requested from senior officials in the U.S. and France that they relay the message to the Lebanese government that Israel will take action against Hezbollah in their country if it doesn’t take steps to prevent the terrorist group from obtaining advanced precision-missile technology.
Although Hezbollah maintains an arsenal of between 120,000-130,000 missiles already, according to most estimates, they are not precision-guided. Should they obtain such technology, it would put Israeli nerve centers at risk.

Iran has doubled its missile tests to improve their range accuracy, Western intelligence believes. 
By Jack Gold, World Israel News
Reports by Western intelligence agencies indicate that the number of Iranian ballistic missile tests has more than doubled in 2018 and that Iran’s missiles can strike at parts of Europe, Germany’s Welt reported on Sunday.
The Welt based its report on documents from Western intelligence services, which say that Iran has significantly expanded its testing activities.
In doing so, Tehran is probably violating U.N. Security Council Resolution 2231, which endorsed the Iran nuclear agreement reached between Iran and the P5+1 powers (U.S., U.K., France, Russia, China, and Germany), and explicitly prohibits Iran from tests and other activity with ballistic missiles designed to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons.
The intelligence reports cited by the Welt show that in 2018 alone Iran launched at least seven medium-range missiles for testing purposes. In addition, Iran fired at least five more short-range and cruise missiles against Islamic State (ISIS) targets in Syria, the use of which could also be in violation of the nuclear agreement.
In 2017, there were only four tests of medium-range missiles and only one test of a short-range missile.

The number of potential of recruits for combat units following this change is about 100 per year.
Cancer survivors would receive a combat profile of 72 (the top profile is 97). The Army stressed that the 72 combat profile will not be automatic, but contingent on recruits’ recovery and medical examinations.
This change to the IDF’s profile book is the most significant since 2005 and will take effect next month. The revision comes after two years of intensive work in the IDF Medical Corps.

By World Israel News Staff
Israeli President Reuven Rivlin has announced he won’t be meeting with Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini, who is scheduled to visit Israel this Tuesday and Wednesday, spotlighting disagreement among Israeli politicians as how to best handle far-right, pro-Israel European politicians.
Rivlin’s office cited the president’s “tight schedule” for not meeting with Salvini, who also holds the post of Italy’s interior minister. But in a CNN interview Rivlin said, “You can’t say- we admire the State of Israel and want ties with it, but we’re neo-fascists.”
“Neo-fascism is completely opposed to the spirit, the principles and the values that the State of Israel was founded upon,” he added.
In another CNN interview, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appeared to disagree with that sentiment, disputing the premise of a question about European leaders’ use of anti-Semitic imagery. “I don’t think they do,” Netanyahu said.

By World Israel News Staff and TPS
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is the most prominent of a growing list of those calling for the cancellation of the appointment of Raja Zaatra as deputy major of Haifa.
On Sunday, Netanyahu said that he had asked newly elected Haifa Mayor Einat Kalisch-Rotem to nix the appointment of a deputy mayor “who supports Hezbollah and Hamas, organizations that declare their wish to destroy the State of Israel.”
Zaatra, a former spokesman for the Hadash Party, a radical left-wing coalition formed by Israel’s communist party and other groups, is set to take up the post in the second half of Kalisch-Rotem’s five year term as part of a coalition agreement in the mixed Jewish-Arab city.
Zaatra, the former Joint Arab List spokesman, has compared the Zionist movement to the Islamic State. At Bar-Ilan University in 2015, he said that the Islamic State had learned from the Zionist movement in 1948 “the rape, the looting, the murder.”

NYU students pass divestment resolution targeting Israel, but administration condemns boycott.
By Shiri Moshe, The Algemeiner
Students at New York University passed a resolution on Thursday endorsing the boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel — a Palestinian-led movement that the school’s administration has repeatedly denounced.
In a secret ballot vote with 35 in favor, 14 against, and 14 abstentions, NYU’s Student Government Assembly adopted legislation calling on NYU to divest from Caterpillar, General Electric, and Lockheed Martin for their alleged involvement “in the violation of Palestinian human rights and human rights globally.”
NYU spokesperson John Beckman said the university would not abide by the measure, citing President Andrew Hamilton’s previous rejection of economic and academic boycotts of Israel.
“The University opposes this proposal,” Beckman said in a statement sent to The Algemeiner. “It is at odds with the Trustees’ well understood position that the endowment should not be used for making political statements.”

While Paris insists that it seeks Arab-Israeli peace, it indirectly finances terrorism and rewards anti-Israel propaganda.
By Daniel Krygier, World Israel News
If French President Emmanuel Macron wants to present himself as an honest broker in the Arab-Israeli conflict, he has a funny way of showing it.
The Abbas regime in Ramallah recently announced that it has received eight million euros from the French government. In total, France has contributed 16 million euros to PA’s general budget during 2018. Ramallah’s uses this budget to finance its “Pay for Slay” program that offers financial incentives to murder Jews in Israel.
PA pays salaries to terrorist prisoners and allowances to the families of dead terrorists who are glorified as “martyrs.” Despite extensive criticism, the PA allocated 1.237 billion shekels to the “Pay for Slay” program, corresponding to more than 7 percent of Ramallah’s entire 2018 budget. While many Western liberals insist that Mahmoud Abbas is a “moderate,” the PA leader has declared that paying salaries to terrorists is a top priority.
France’s unbalanced approach to the Arab-Israeli conflict is not only limited to indirectly enabling terrorism against the Jewish state. The French government just awarded the extreme left Jerusalem-based B’Tselem organization and its Ramallah-based partner al-Haq the French Republic 2018 Human Rights Award. While B’Tselem claims to be a human rights organization, the controversial foreign-funded group has a long history of one-sided and systematic slandering of Israel.
While demonizing Israel’s democracy, B’Tselem largely ignores and even whitewashes the despotic PA’s severe human rights violations and support of terrorism. On October 18, 2018, B’Tselem’s Executive Director Hagai El-Ad participated at a U.N. Security Council session. Sitting next to Ramallah’s U.N. envoy Riyad Mansour, the B’Tselem director blasted Israel and falsely equated Israeli policies in Judea and Samaria with the former racist Apartheid regime in South Africa.

IDF fires on suspected Hezbollah terrorists near border, warns Lebanon it will attack if terror group continues developing precision missiles.
By Benjamin Kerstein, The Algemeiner
In the first major flare-up since Operation Northern Shield began, the IDF fired on three suspected Hezbollah terrorists who approached the border with Lebanon.
The operation on the northern border has been ongoing since last Tuesday. It is intended to destroy cross-border attack tunnels dug by Hezbollah that Israel believes were intended to facilitate a full-scale attack on the Galilee region.
According to Israel’s Channel Two, the three suspected terrorists approached the border using the stormy weekend weather as cover. The IDF Spokesperson’s Office said IDF soldiers “shot toward the figures according to orders to open fire. The three escaped. The work continues as planned.”
Hebrew news site Walla quotes the official Lebanese news service as saying, “The soldiers of the Zionist enemy fired in the air after they were surprised by a routine patrol by the Lebanese army on Lebanese territory, because of the heavy fog.”

South African leaders have rolled out the red carpet for an official Hamas delegation during the past week, with a private visit to the Robben Island prison cell of Nelson Mandela, the late former South African president, along with the formal signing of a “Memorandum of Understanding” between the ruling African National Congress (ANC) and the Islamist organization.
Headed by veteran Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Zahar, the delegation of politicians from the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC) in Gaza included Nabil Abu-Ras, Muhammad Faraj al-Ghul, and Musheer al-Masri — all of them supporters of the Hamas-backed bloc in the Palestinian Parliament.
While on their visit, which commenced last Wednesday, the Hamas delegation was escorted to one of country’s most important centers for commemorating the Apartheid era: the prison cell on Robben Island where Mandela spent 18 of his 27 years in prison, and from where he became a global symbol of opposition to South Africa’s ruling white minority.

By World Israel News Staff
Overnight Monday the Israeli Army launched an operation to destroy Hezbollah’s cross-border terror tunnels from Lebanon into Israel.
Operation “Northern Shield,” as it’s been called, is a major, multi-branch effort of the Israeli Defense Forces involving the Intelligence Branch, the Combat Engineering Corps and the Administration for the Development of Weapons and Infrastructure.
The Northern Command is leading the operation, headed by Maj.-General Yoel Strick.
“The digging of the cross-border attack tunnels, which the IDF discovered before they became operational and posed an imminent threat to the safety of Israeli civilians, constitutes a flagrant and severe violation of Israeli sovereignty,” the IDF said in a statement.

By Jack Gold, World Israel News
“Anyone who tries to harm the state of Israel will pay a heavy price,” Netanyahu warned Hezbollah on Tuesday as the Israel Defense Forces continued its large-scale operation to destroy the terror organization’s tunneling operations.
The IDF launched Operation Northern Shield early Tuesday morning to expose and destroy terror tunnels dug by Hezbollah from Lebanon into Israel. It’s operating at several points inside Israeli territory along its northern border with Lebanon, with several areas declared a closed military zone.
“We are proud of the IDF commanders and fighters for the complex operations and operational successes in the early stages of the operation,” Netanyahu tweeted. “We act with determination and responsibility in all sectors simultaneously. We will continue with other actions, overt and covert, in order to ensure Israel’s security.”

By World Israel News Staff
Operation Northern Shield, which began overnight Monday to eliminate Hezbollah’s terror tunnels, won wide support from across Israel’s political spectrum on Tuesday. Politicians of all stripes backed the military and expressed their hopes for a successful outcome, though not without some political swiping from the opposition.
“I hope in a short time we’ll think of this threat [of Hezbollah tunnels] as ‘the threat that was,'” said Opposition leader Tzipi Livni in an interview with Army Radio Tuesday, adding that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “is looking for a reason to put off the elections and can use this.”
Zionist Union MK Itzik Shmuli tweeted, “We all back the IDF in their mission to defend the northern residents. Regarding this, at the end of this action, it will be required to inspect house in connection with the manner every complaint was dealt with, sometimes with dismissal and even contempt, concerning noises of digging reported by the residents.”

“Particular attention was reserved for the status of Jerusalem, underlining the importance of recognizing and preserving its identity and the universal value of the holy City for the three Abrahamic religions,” a Vatican statement said, referring to Christianity, Judaism, and Islam.
U.S. President Donald Trump outraged the Arab world last year when he reversed decades of policy by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel‘s capital and put Washington’s embassy there. It was opened in May.

In view of growing Middle Eastern turmoil, the time has come for Israel to review the efficacy of its traditional policy of deliberate nuclear ambiguity.
By Louis René Beres, the BESA Center
Given the upheavals cascading throughout the Middle East since 2011, Israel now faces a unique dilemma. Notwithstanding the logical underpinnings and coherence of its own unilateral foreign policies, whatever Jerusalem should decide to do or not do about the “big picture,” a vision that could include the advent of a nuclear Iran as a regional hegemon and heightened Shiite-Sunni infighting, this ever-volatile region could slip irretrievably into a still deeper level of chaos.
If Israel is to remain secure in such an environment, it will have to re-evaluate its policy of deliberate nuclear ambiguity.
To date, the “bomb-in-the-basement” policy has made good sense for Israel. Both friends and foes recognize that it possesses significant nuclear capabilities that are both survivable and capable of penetrating enemy defenses. Indeed, for adversaries not to acknowledge these capabilities would require a self-imposed intellectual deficit.
But what should Israel do about its nuclear posture going forward? How should this ambiguous stance be adapted to the convergent and inter-penetrating threats of still-impending Middle Eastern/North African revolutions, a nuclear Iran, and Israel’s more or less constant concern about negotiating agreements with state and sub-state (terrorist) organizations?

Hezbollah’s tunnels were part of a larger plan to invade the Galilee region in northern Israel.
By Yona Schnitzer/TPS 
Hezbollah planned to launch a surprise tunnel invasion of the Galilee under the cover of heavy artillery fire, in an attempt to conquer and occupy it, the IDF said Tuesday afternoon, explaining that the objective of Operation Northern Shield is to prevent such an event.
“In 2012, Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah proclaimed that he has a plan to conquer the Galilee,” said Lt. Colonel Jonathan Conricus of the IDF Spokesperson’s unit, in a briefing on the northern border called after the IDF launched an operation in the early hours of Tuesday morning to expose and neutralize Hezbollah tunnels crossing into Israel.
“The plan was quite simple,” Conricus said. “Massive amounts of fire to be fired from Lebanon by Hezbollah towards the immediate area by the border, and an additional part of the plan, the ‘surprise factor,’ would be to have elite Hezbollah terrorists to come from Lebanon to infiltrate Israel and try to surprise Israeli troops and civilians.”

In a tweet on Wednesday, the embassy stated, “No doubt that Israel has the right to protect its national security, including to prevent the illegal entry of anyone into the country.”
The tweet referred to a new IDF strategy called Operation Northern Shield, launched overnight Monday by the Israeli army to destroy Hezbollah’s cross-border terror tunnels. The operation exposed Hezbollah’s terror tunnel digging efforts, which mirror the tactics of the Hamas terror group in Gaza.

By World Israel News Staff
It turns out that the first Hezbollah tunnel the Israeli Army exposed yesterday had been dug right under the noses of UNIFIL, (The United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon) whose mandate is to monitor the cessation of hostilities and keep the area between the Blue Line and the Litani River free of hostile forces.
“The tunnel was dug from a civilian building that served as a civilian block factory up until 2014, only a few meters from a UNIFIL position and UNIFIL patrols, whose mission is to enforce Resolution 1701,” said IDF Spokesman Ronen Manelis.
Resolution 1701, unanimously approved by the U.N., was meant to resolve the Second Lebanon War in 2006. UNIFIL was tasked with ensuring its various provisions were fulfilled, including full respect for the Blue Line, the border between Israel and Lebanon.
“Our monitoring of this structure from 2014 showed that civilian activity in the building declined and military activity began to increase,” Manelis said. “We started to see unusual activity under the guise of civilians, vehicles and trucks transporting dirt from the building to a nearby area … in fact they were clearing the dirt from the tunnel construction. Hezbollah tried to hide this from us, from Lebanon civilians and from UNIFIL.”

Dubai’s secret Jews come out of the shadows

Israel’s rising status in the Middle East has helped Dubai’s Jewish community step out of the shadows.
By Jack Gold, World Israel News
A small community of Jews has opened Dubai’s first synagogue amid a tolerance campaign that has eased restrictions on minority religions in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bloomberg reported.
While Jews have maintained connections with their Arab neighbors for centuries, the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948 generated a wave of anti-Semitism that led to the expulsion of the majority of the Jews from Arab lands.
Today, as the region’s economy grows, a small Jewish community in Dubai has founded that city’s first synagogue, after meeting for years in  various private homes to pray.
Dubai’s Jews rented a villa for prayer services and hospitality three years ago, and the synagogue’s “emergence from the shadows reflects warming relations between Israel and governments in the region,” Bloomberg noted. However, community members have asked visitors not to reveal its location or write about its activities, while some are even opposed to speaking openly about its existence.
On a typical Sabbath or Jewish holiday, a few dozen of the 150 or so members attend services. The congregation currently has no rabbi.

“I want us to see that segregation and how that has really harmed us being able to achieve real peace in that region,” Tlaib told The Intercept. “I don’t think [the American Israel Public Affairs Committee] provides a real, fair lens into this issue.”
“It’s one-sided,” Tlaib continued, “[They] have these lavish trips to Israel, but they don’t show the side that I know is real, which is what’s happening to my grandmother and what’s happening to my family there.”

By World Israel News Staff
President Donald Trump says that one of the reasons the U.S. is in the Middle East is to help Israel, in an interview with The Washington Post on Tuesday.
Responding to a question concerning U.S.-Saudi relations after the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Trump said, “It’s very important to have Saudi Arabia as an ally, if we’re going to stay in that part of the world. Now, are we going to stay in that part of the world? One reason to is Israel.”
Trump suggested that America’s presence in the Mideast may eventually boil down to standing by its ally. “Oil is becoming less and less of a reason because we’re producing more oil now than we’ve ever produced. So, you know, all of a sudden it gets to a point where you don’t have to stay there,” he said.

“In 2019, there exists a more complex and challenging threat to Israel, together with capabilities already known to us from the past,” he said. “There is another geo-strategic reality that presents us with other challenges and threats.”
Although Tel Aviv and Israel’s central region have been relatively untouched by Hamas rocket fire and incendiary bombs over the last eight months of hostilities, Hamas rocket capabilities have clearly improved since Israel’s last incursion into the Gaza Strip during Operation Protective Edge in July-August 2014.

The Sheba Medical Center’s delivery room in Tel Aviv was hopping Tuesday as three sets of triplets were born, one after another (after another), reported Israel Hayom on Wednesday.
The babies, who weighed between 32 ounces (900 grams) to 4 pounds (1.8 kilograms), were whisked immediately into the premature infants’ ward, with two who were in more serious condition put on ventilators in the neonatal intensive care unit.
Their mothers had held their own until weeks 30, 31 and 32 respectively.
Dr. Tzippi Strauss, head of the neonatal and preemie department at Sheba, told Israel Hayom that some of the women had been taken care of at Sheba’s department for high-risk pregnancies, “but we sure didn’t plan that all of them would give birth on the same day. It was a unique sight,” she said.
The fathers showed off their right wrists, which were wrapped in three armbands apiece – one for each child.

One of them, David, said, “I think that getting a gift like this is a miracle from heaven. It’s very exciting. It’s taking me time to absorb it, but I’m sure that we’ll manage with everything. I’d like to thank the whole staff, and God.”

Gilad Erdan, minister of strategic affairs, set up an inter-departmental team to explore ways to respond to Airbnb’s decision. The team’s first fruits? Five letters sent to U.S. governors requesting that they sanction the apartment rental giant and speak out publicly against it.

Analysis: Holding ‘Area E1’ may define Israel’s destiny

‘Area E1′ – Israel’s destiny has rarely been more explicitly defined.
By Bill Mehlman, World Israel News
Geography in the Middle East is destiny.
Israel’s destiny has rarely been more explicitly defined than in its need to control and settle  the 4.6 mile corridor known as ‘Area E1.
It’s the land link between Jerusalem and Ma’ale Adumim with its 40,000 residents. It’s also the IDF’s only secure access to the strategic Jordan Valley.
The link is in jeopardy. First, by President Trump’s looming ‘deal of the century,’ and second, by Israel’s own failure to take action against festering issues that threaten its ability to develop E1.
These include the Bedouin outpost Khan al-Ahmar, which Israel’s High Court of Justice approved for demolition, but which Israel’s government has yet to remove, and now a second, unnamed Bedouin outpost only a few 100 feet from Khan al-Ahmar, which the government too appears impotent to handle.

The home of the terrorist who killed Ari Fuld will be demolished, the IDF said Tuesday. 
By World Israel News Staff
The home of the terrorist who stabbed to death Ari Fuld in Gush Etzion on September 16 will be destroyed, the Israel Defense Forces said Tuesday.
“The IDF will continue to act with determination to prevent terror attacks and to deter terrorists,” the Army said in a statement. The IDF informed the terrorist’s family of its decision.
Khalil Yusef Ali Jabarin stabbed Fuld in the back near a supermarket at the Gush Etzion junction. Though mortally wounded, Fuld drew his pistol and shot the terrorist, wounding him and preventing a larger attack. The terrorist was then shot and killed by Israel forces.
Fuld was taken to Shaare Zedek hospital in Jerusalem where he was pronounced dead.
Fuld, who was an activist on behalf of Israel, was mourned by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who said, “He was an advocate for Israel who fought to spread the truth about Israel. May his memory be a blessing.”
In October, Fuld’s widow, Miriam, sent a letter to the head of the IDF Central Command calling on him to demolish the home of the terrorist.

Hamas leaders are ready to return control of the Gaza Strip to the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah, according to a Lebanon-based news agency.
By World Israel News Staff
Hamas leaders are ready to return control of the Gaza Strip to the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah, according to a Tuesday report from the Lebanon-based pro-Hezbollah Al-Mayadeen network.
Hamas leaders agree to transfer power to Fatah’s control in exchange for a promise that the Palestinian Authority  form a unity government with Hamas. Hamas insists the unity government must be formed within 45 days, according to Al-Mayadeen.
Hamas’s central demand, and the one which is likely to cause the PA to reject the offer, according to Israel Hayom, is that new elections be held within six months, including in Judea and Samaria.
Israel Hayom says the PA will probably not accept this condition for fear that elections will bring Hamas to power.

By World Israel News Staff
America’s U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, together with Israeli diplomats, has been working to build support for a U.S.-draft resolution at the world body condemning the Hamas terrorist organization.
In a U.N. first, the resolution will condemn all of Hamas’s terror activities, of which there is a very long list, including rocket attacks, fire kites and balloons, turning civilian resources to terrorist uses, incitement to violence, and terror tunnels.
A draft obtained by Israel National News reads, “The General Assembly reaffirms its steadfast support for the pursuit of true peace, in accordance with the standards of international law, and condemns Hamas for the repeated firing of rockets into Israel due to the incitement to violence and the use of the civilian population.”

By Yona Schnitzer/TPS
“The United States remains committed to sharing its vision for peace with Israel, the Palestinians and other regional and international stakeholders at the appropriate time,” U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman said Monday following reports that the publication of President Donald Trump’s “deal of the century” is to be postponed as a result of the political situation in Israel.
“Our timing, our strategy and our messaging is and will be entirely our own. We intend to release the President’s vision when the Administration concludes that we have maximized its potential for acceptance, execution and implementation,” Friedman continued.
On Thursday, the Palestinian news website Al-Quds reported that President Trump had decided to postpone the publication of the deal due to political crisis resulting from the withdrawal of Avigdor Liberman and his Israel Beiteinu party from the governing coalition
“[Prime Minister Binyamin] Netanyahu prefers that there not be any announcement of the plan, especially following the recent incidents in the Middle East and the political situation in Israel,” a source told Al-Quds.

The rabbi who converted Ivanka Trump is on the Israeli rabbinate’s list of recognized clergymen whose conversions and divorces are recognized by the Jewish state.
Israel’s Chief Rabbinate has made public the lists of overseas rabbis it recognizes for the purposes of conversion and divorce, Ha’aretz reported on Tuesday.
The lists were published in Hebrew recently on the rabbinate’s official website, and a third list – those recognized for the purpose of marriage – is yet to be added, Ha’aretz said.
The list includes only Orthodox rabbis, as other Jewish denominations are not recognized by the rabbinate.

Energy superpower? Israel signs deal to pipe gas to Europe
Israel has signed an agreement with Italy, Greece, and Cyprus to lay the longest gas pipeline in history.
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Following two years of negotiations, Israel has signed an agreement with Italy, Greece, and Cyprus to lay the longest gas pipeline in history, Israel’s Channel 2 reported Saturday night.
The pipeline will traverse a distance of 1,242 miles and lie at a depth of between 1.8-to-3 miles. It will provide gas to Europe from Israel’s offshore fields.
The EastMed Pipeline Project is projected to begin in a few months’ time, starting about 170 km off Cyprus’ southern coast and reaching Otranto, Italy via Crete and the Greek mainland.
Up to 20 billion cubic meters of gas is expected to flow to Europe annually, thereby diversifying its supply of this energy source, which is now heavily dependent on Russia.
In 2014 Moscow threatened to cut natural gas deliveries over a dispute with the Ukraine, and actually did stop the flow temporarily in 2009.
The pipeline could be more than a direct boost to Israel’s economy, Minister of National Infrastructure, Energy, and Water Resources Yuval Steinitz told Hadashot TV.

“Airbnb is not welcome in Beverly Hills as long as its policies are based on anti-Jewish double standards,” said Vice Mayor Jon Mirisch.
By World Israel News Staff
The Beverly Hills City Council has unanimously passed a resolution condemning Airbnb’s decision to remove listings of rentals in Israeli settlements in Judea and Samaria and is encouraging a boycott of the web service, the city announced in a statement on Wednesday.
“We find the actions of Airbnb deplorable,” said Mayor Julian Gold. “On behalf of our residents, this unanimous resolution reflects the City Council’s ongoing commitment to Israel and to exposing hatred anywhere it exists.”
The Israeli-Jewish Congress and human rights leaders have also publicly opposed the company’s actions, the statement noted.
“Airbnb is not welcome in Beverly Hills as long as its policies are based on anti-Jewish double standards,” added Vice Mayor Jon Mirisch. “Jew hatred is a disease. We can try to inoculate others against this malady, but we also must protect ourselves against its effects.”

By Jack Gold, World Israel News
President Milos Zeman of the Czech Republic, who arrived with his wife Ivana Zemanova in Israel on Sunday for a three-day state visit, will formally open the “Czech House” in Jerusalem on Tuesday.
The “Czech House” is considered by Prague as a “first step” toward relocating the country’s embassy to Jerusalem.
“Although this institution will not have a diplomatic status, Zeman sees it as a precursor to the transfer of the Czech Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem,” a statement by the Czech parliament said.
The Czech president is a strong proponent of the relocation of his country’s embassy to Jerusalem.
In late April, Zeman announced a “three-stage” plan to relocate the country’s embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, which included the reopening of its honorary consulate in Jerusalem the following month. The honorary consulate was first opened in the early 1990s but closed in 2016 due to the death of the honorary consul.

The airline must apologize for “slandering” the passengers of the Friday flight that took off too late to land in Israel before the Sabbath, says prominent rabbi.
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Rabbi Shalom Ber Sorotzkin, who heads a large religious education network in Israel and was on the infamous flight two Fridays ago that was diverted to Athens because it could not make it to Israel before the Sabbath, has sent a letter to El Al CEO Gonen Ussishkin threatening to call for a boycott of the airline unless a public apology is made by Sunday.
In explaining the decision to divert the aircraft, El Al alleged that ultra-Orthodox passengers had “exercised heavy and violent pressure against the cabin crew” when told the flight would not make it to Israel in time. This was the reason for the landing in Greece, which would prevent them from being forced to break the Sabbath, El Al claimed.

By Jack Gold, World Israel News
Israeli forces on Sunday morning arrested Adnan Jit, considered by the Palestinians as the governor of Jerusalem, at his home in the city’s neighborhood of Silwan.
Jit was arrested in connection with the kidnapping of an Arab who was charged with helping to sell an Arab-owned house to Jews, a capital offense in the Palestinian Authority (PA).
This is the second time in a month’s time that Jit has been arrested by Israel forces. He was arrested on October 25 and released after a week of house arrest.
The police suspect that Jit’s office, which is funded by the PA, transfers funds to Palestinians in Jerusalem who carry out various investigative activities aimed at thwarting land deals between Palestinians and Jews.
Security sources told Israel Hayom that Jit, who was recently appointed to his position, was identified as one of the leaders of Fatah’s Tanzim military arm and is behind several incidents of violence in the capital.

Continuing Iranian leaders’ decades-long practice of of condemning Israel and threatening to destroy it, Iran’s current President Hassan Rouhani, called ‘moderate’ by some, issued similar threats to the Jewish state.
By Associated Press and World Israel News Staff
Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani on Saturday called Israel a “cancerous tumor” established by Western countries to advance their interests in the Middle East.
Addressing an annual Islamic Unity Conference on Saturday, Rouhani said “one of the ominous results of World War II was the formation of a cancerous tumor in the region.” He went on to refer to Israel as a “fake regime” set up by Western countries.
Iran supports terror groups like Hezbollah and Hamas that are pledged to Israel’s destruction, in addition to positioning Iranian troops in Syria close to Israel’s border.
Israel consistently condemns Iran as an existential threat to the Jewish state.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, condemned Rouhani’s remarks on Saturday evening, stating, “Israel knows very well how to defend itself from the murderous Iranian regime. Rouhani’s slander, which calls for the destruction of Israel, proves yet again why the nations of the world need to join in the sanctions against the Iranian terrorist regime which threatens them.”

Hamas was shocked by its recent discovery of an ‘Israeli base’ operating in the middle of territory it ostensibly controls.
By The Algemeiner
Hamas has been stunned by the revelation that the IDF essentially operated an “Israeli base” in the heart of the Gaza Strip, exposed by a botched intelligence-gathering operation earlier this month.
The operation resulted in a firefight in which seven people were killed, including a Hamas leader and an Israeli commander. The incident led to massive Hamas rocket fire on Israel’s south, and nearly sparked a war before both sides accepted a ceasefire.
According to Israel’s Channel Two, Hamas’ investigation into the incident revealed that the IDF unit entered Gaza either through the Erez Crossing with Israel or the Rafah Crossing with Egypt. Those crossings at both sites are required to present official identification.

Betrayal and humiliation: Hamas leaders wage war on each otherHamas leader Yahya Sinwar. (AP/Adel Hana)
Discord between Hamas’ political leader Ismail Haniyeh and military commander Yahya Sinwar has reached “unprecedented” levels Gaza sources say, adding that the two no longer speak.
By Daniel Siryoti, Israel Hayom via JNS.org
Hamas’ political leader Ismail Haniyeh and the group’s military ‎leader Yahya Sinwar have been repeatedly locking horns over the ‎terrorist group’s policies in the Gaza Strip, and the rivalry has gotten to the point where the two no longer speak to each ‎other, Israel Hayom learned Wednesday.‎
According to Gaza sources, the growing animosity between the two ‎has caused a rift in Hamas, pitting Haniyeh’s supporters against Sinwar’s supporters in a devastating split.
Haniyeh’s camp includes ‎top political officials in the group and Sinwar’s camp hails from Hamas’ military wing, the Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades, led by ‎Hamas strongman Mohammed Deif. ‎
A senior Hamas official described the rift in Hamas’ leadership as ‎‎”unprecedented,” saying it has undermined the Egyptian-led ‎efforts to strike an agreement between Hamas and Israel that ‎would allow for the economic rehabilitation of Gaza.‎
‎”Sinwar, who was released [from Israeli prison] as part of the ‎‎[2011] Schalit deal, is very committed to the issue of Palestinian ‎prisoners,” the official added. “He promised the prisoners still in jail that he will do ‎everything in his power to secure their release, and he is following through on that. ‎Haniyeh is less interested in the prisoners and has refused ‎various offers for a prisoner exchange deal with Israel.”

By Jack Gold, World Israel News
A senior Iranian general threatened to attack U.S. bases and aircraft carriers in the Middle East and Afghanistan, saying they were an easy target for Tehran’s missiles.
Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force, stated on Wednesday that the IRGC has been focused on improving its missiles’ precision for the past decade, acting on the orders of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s Tasnim News reported.
The IRGC paramilitary force is in charge of the country’s missile program.
Hajizadeh said that all U.S. military bases in the region are within the range of Iran’s missiles, specifically naming the Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar and the Al Dhafra Air Base in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), situated some 300 kilometers away from Iran, and the Kandahar base in Afghanistan, which is only kilometers away from Iran.
The U.S. has several large bases in Arab countries in the region, including the forward headquarters of the US military’s Central Command in Qatar, American bases in the UAE and the U.S. Navy’s 5th Fleet in Bahrain.

FBI reports Anti-Semitic crimes increased by 37 percent in 2017. Islamophobic incidents dropped by 11 percent.
By Joseph Wolkin, World Israel News
According to data released by the FBI on Tuesday, anti-Semitic incidents increased by 37 percent last year, totalling 938 reports of anti-Jewish crime, excluding non-reported events.
The data revealed also showed a drop in Islamophobic crimes by 11 percent in 2017. There were 273 such incidents throughout the year.
Overall, hate crimes were up by 17 percent in 2017, marking the third straight year the FBI reported an increase in such cases.
The FBI said the spike is partially due to more police departments sharing hate crime information with the organization.
“[The report] provides further evidence that more must be done to address the divisive climate of hate in America,” Jonathan A. Greenblatt, CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, said. “That begins with leaders from all walks of life and from all sectors of society forcefully condemning anti-Semitism, bigotry, and hate whenever it occurs.”

With help from the World Jewish Congress, the United Nations agency launched a website to disseminate information about the Holocaust.
By Joseph Wolkin
UNESCO presented its new aboutholocaust.org Monday at the United Nations agency’s Paris headquarters. UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay and WJC President Ronald Lauder launched the site at the event, with a press release explaining the project represents “a response to increased hate and disinformation online.”
“The WJC has partnered with UNESCO in this critical Holocaust education project to pass the baton on to the young people of today, the future leaders of tomorrow,” Lauder said. “It is our duty to ensure that the six million Jews killed just for being Jewish will be remembered by all, and that the circumstances of their deaths will constantly remind us what can happen when we let hatred prevail.”
There are several sections on the site, including a “Testimonies” tab, which includes video footage from survivors discussing how they made it out of the Holocaust alive.
“The website launch comes in the wake of the high-level event on preventing anti-Semitism through education, organized by UNESCO in the presence of the UN Secretary-General, during the United Nations General Assembly in New York last September,” the UNESCO press release stated.
Anti-Semitism Guidelines

Knesset Speaker squashes conference about ridding Hebron of Jews

Knesset Speaker squashes conference about ridding Hebron of JewsIsraeli Arab and Jewish left-wing Knesset members will hold a conference at Israel's parliament focused on expelling Hebron of its Jews . (Flash 90)
“This is a type of ‘final solution’ — to evict our ethnic minority from the cradle of Jewish civilization in order to appease the jihad,” Hebron’s Jewish community spokesperson stated.
By JNS.org and World Israel News
Kesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein put the kibosh on a planned conference at the Knesset that would have called for the immediate expulsion of Jews from the ancient city of Hebron. The conference was organized by Arab MKs and their radical, left-wing Jewish colleagues in Israel’s parliament.
Conference organizers attempted to sidestep Knesset regulations that require conferences to be approved by the Knesset Speaker by defining the event as a “gathering.”
“Time after time, certain MKs try to act behind my back and that of the professional staff of the Knesset for cheap political gain. Lies are destined to be revealed,” Edelstein said.
Arab Joint List MKs Ayman Odeh and Dov Khenin, as well as Meretz MK Michal Rozin, had issued a statement before the cancellation, saying:
“The settlement in Hebron is the expression of an extremist government policy that pours mass sums of money and endangers human lives to strengthen and maintain a handful of extremist settlers

Rarest, most expensive ‘Palestine’ banknote in history up for auctionThis 1929 50-pound note from British Mandate Palestine had its initial price set at $80,000. (King David Auctions)
Got a lot of loose change? Here’s what you can do with it…
By Jack Gold, World Israel News
The rarest and most expensive banknote that has ever been put up for sale in Israel – a 1929 British Mandate 50 Palestine Pound note – will be auctioned by the King David Auctions House on Thursday.
Professional catalogs of banknotes and coins have declined to determine its price due to its rareness.
Experts estimate that during the years the banknote was valid, one could buy land in the most expensive areas in Israel.
Enclosed with it are the original certificates of the late collector Avraham Birenbaum.
Its condition is described as “very fine” with “insignificant folds, small pin holes, thick, healthy paper.”

There isn’t enough public support for an operation that could end Hamas terror completely. Thus the choice is between two short-term fixes, both of them bad.
By Evelyn Gordon, JNS.org
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is being assailed by his own base for his restraint last week following Hamas’s massive bombardment of southern Israel. But in considering what Israel’s policy should be, it’s important to realize that for now, the option of permanently ending Hamas terror doesn’t exist — not because it’s beyond Israel’s capability, but because it lacks sufficient public support.
If someone came up with an idea for destroying Hamas that could be executed quickly and with minimal casualties, Israelis obviously would support that, but nobody has. Thus the only plan with proven capability to suppress terror over the long term remains the one Israel executed in the West Bank in 2002 in response to the second intifada: The army goes in, and it never leaves. That’s how Israel defeated the second intifada, and how it has kept West Bank terror within tolerable limits ever since.

Report: US counterterrorism strategy fails to address Islamic threat

Report: US counterterrorism strategy fails to address Islamic threatISIS terrorists. (Screenshot)
 Print  Email  2 Comments
The current US counterterrorism strategy is shortsighted and narrow and must adapt to an evolving global Jihadi threat, a new report says.  
By Jack Gold, World Israel News
The American counterterrorism strategy in fighting the Islamic State (ISIS) and other Muslim terror groups risks becoming irrelevant to the new and evolving threat posed by the global Jihadi movement, a new report warns.
The American Enterprise Institute, which authored the report, said that the strategy “misconceptualizes the enemy as a set of discrete groups and individuals to defeat and kill,” which has been US policy since the onset of the war on Islamic terrorism. It “wrongly emphasizes a kinetic approach,” meaning assassinations of individuals, as a means to addressing threats these groups pose to American interests, the report said, adding that a broader approach is required.
The report further charges that current US policy “underestimates the importance of the Salafi-jihadi movement that persists beyond the defeat of specific threat groups” and does not account the terror groups’ “reprioritization of its efforts” and its ability to regroup and morph at different places across the globe, despite losing battles in other areas.

In his letter of resignation to British Prime Minister Theresa May, the former vice chairman of the Conservative party stressed that the government’s treatment of Asia Bibi was one of the reasons for his departure. 
By AP and World Israel News Staff
Three weeks after Pakistan’s Supreme Court acquitted her of blasphemy, a Christian woman who had been on death row for eight years was freed from detention, but her whereabouts are a closely guarded secret following demands by Muslim extremists that she be hanged in public.
The case of Asia Bibi has become a political minefield for Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan. He has been trying to placate the Muslim fanatics who have threatened to topple his government while keeping the 54-year-old mother of five safe from a lynch mob and searching for a way to allow her to leave Pakistan without bringing rioters into the streets.
“Adnan Khan, chairman of the U.S-based Council of Pakistan, insisted that – contrary to reports – the Pakistan government has indeed ‘come down very hard on all protesters and the Islamist parties’ and resolved that no new charges would be brought against Bibi,” according to Fox News.

According to a report which took into account 55 different factors, Israel’s Power Index puts it in a high place out of 136 nations.
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Israel’s army placed 16th in the world in 2018 by website Global Firepower, which just published its annual firepower index ranking the militaries of 136 countries. Though a drop of one spot from 2017, it’s not considered significant by the site.
The site’s algorithms looked at 55 factors, including such “bonuses” as belonging to NATO, (as these countries ostensibly have back-up on hand from allies) proven or suspected possession of nuclear weapons, financial health, transportation systems, industrial development and natural resources, and their global status – First, Second, or Third World.
The site acknowledged that some values processed by their in-house formula were estimated when official numbers were not available.
Out of the fifteen countries that topped Israel, Turkey (9) and Iran (13) are the only ones that are actively hostile to the Jewish state and close enough geographically to do anything about it, although of the two only the Islamic Republic is considered a strategic threat.

An Israeli judge sentenced the JCC bomb hoaxer to 10 years in prison for making thousands of bomb threats to Jewish communities.
By World Israel News Staff
“The hacker from Ashkelon,” as he’s dubbed in Israel, better known in the states as the boy behind the JCC bomb threats, received a 10 year sentence from the Tel Aviv District Court on Thursday and was fined 60,000 shekels ($16,000).
The defendant, M., (19) whose name was withheld, was charged with an astonishing slew of crimes for someone who was still a minor when he carried them out, including making thousands of bomb threats, extortion, threatening to kidnap children, and most famously threatening to blow up Jewish Community Centers in the U.S.
The real-world results of his threats, which The Times of Israel sums up nicely “caused fighter jets to scramble, planes to dump fuel and make emergency landings, schools to evacuate, and numerous other chaotic consequences.”
Remarkably, M. continued to make bomb threats from prison, leading to the evacuation of two elementary schools in Israel and a hotel in Eilat.
When the judge read the ruling, M’s father cried out, “He’s ill!” referring to the fact that M has been diagnosed with autism and a brain tumor. The judge said, “If not for his situation, I would have handed down a 17 year imprisonment.”

By World Israel News
Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked admitted that the decision of the Jewish Home Party to issue an ultimatum to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu last week was a mistake, in an interview Thursday with Ynet news.
“We considered resigning, but in the end we decided to forgo our honor and continue. We lost this round,” she told Ynet, suggesting that an ultimatum wouldn’t have been their first preference but, “From our history with Netanyahu, we see that unfortunately, only through such means can we achieve our goals.”
“It’s possible we shouldn’t have given him a public ultimatum, we may have made mistakes, but we only learn; there are political rounds that we lose,” she said.

Despite Jonathan Pollard’s 30 years in prison and three years of parole, the U.S. is still not granting him his full freedom.    
By Jack Gold, World Israel News
The U.S. Justice Department has refused Israel’s request to allow former spy Jonathan Pollard to make Aliyah (immigrate to the Jewish state), Israel’s Hadashot news reported Thursday.
After serving 30 years in a US prison for his espionage activity for Israel, an ally, Pollard, a former US Navy analyst, was finally released in 2015.
Under the terms of his parole, Pollard must remain in the U.S. for the next five years unless he receives permission from the president to leave. Pollard was granted Israeli citizenship in 1995.
While Pollard is no longer incarcerated, he continues to face many limitations. He remains under modified house arrest and could be jailed for any technical infraction. His internet use is limited and monitored, and the worst restriction is likely the ban on his flying to Israel. He has repeatedly expressed a desire to move to Israel.
A year ago, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu requested Pollard’s release from President Donald Trump.

ADL: Saudi textbooks still teaching anti-Semitic incitement

ADL: Saudi textbooks still teaching anti-Semitic incitement(Shutterstock/Illustrative)
 Print  Email  32 Comments
Zionism achieves its goals through the use of “money, politics, womankind, drugs and the media,” a Saudi textbook says.
By Joseph Wolkin, World Israel News
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) published a new report on Tuesday revealing Saudi Arabia’s use of hate speech in textbooks. The books preach not only anti-Semitism, but also vitriol against Christians, women and homosexual men.
The government-published textbooks are exposed in the ADL report, titled, “Teaching Hate and Violence: Problematic Passages from Saudi State Textbooks for the 2018–19 School Year.”
The ADL translated the textbooks from Arabic, exposing dozens of passages “that clearly propagate incitement to hatred or violence” against the aforementioned groups.
Twelve years ago, the United States issued a waiver from penalties to the Saudi government under the International Religious Freedom Act due to the Saudi ruler’s stated commitment to change the textbooks in an attempt to erase incitement.
But the pledge to filter out such speech in the textbooks remains unfulfilled.

IDF General to Gaza Belt students: ‘I can’t promise you quiet’

IDF General to Gaza Belt students: ‘I can’t promise you quiet’Brig. General Eliezer Toledano (IAF)
“I can’t promise you quiet,” the IDF general told high school students during a frank talk in the Gaza Belt.
By World Israel News Staff
“I can’t promise you quiet,” IDF Brig. General Eliezer Toledano, the commander of the Gaza Division, whose area of responsibility includes the Gaza Strip, told high school students in the Sha’ar Hanegev region in the Gaza Belt on Wednesday, Ynet news reports.
“We need patience,” Toledano said.
“The last round wasn’t easy,” he noted, referring to the 500 rockets that were fired at Israel last week, “but your defense is our top priority. Good lads are doing this all along the border and also across the border.”
The students Toledano met with were organizers of the protest march two weeks ago that went from the Gaza Belt to the Knesset where they were joined by 1,000s of other students from around the country.
The students were protesting living under constant threat of bombardment by rockets, and other aerials forms of terror from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip. Their message was: ‘We just want to grow up in peace and quiet.’
“We want it so you can grow up in quiet,” Toledano told the students, “And we’re doing everything in our power so the enemy won’t challenge us.”
“Our biggest problem is that Hamas places our citizens in the game while we’re careful not to hurt their citizens,” he said, according to Ynet.

According to a recent survey, 76 percent of respondents said they have no plans to emigrate in the past five years despite anti-Jewish vitriol.
By JNS.org
Despite increasing anti-Semitism, European Jews, who feel safer in the eastern than the western part of the continent, have no plans to emigrate anytime soon, according to a survey taken for the fourth time by the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee’s International Center for Community Development, which closely analyzes European Jewry.
According to the survey, 76 percent of respondents said they have not made plans in the past five years to emigrate due to anti-Jewish vitriol, while just 19 percent said otherwise.
At the same time, 63 percent of respondents said they felt “rather safe,” 20 percent “very safe,” 13 percent “rather unsafe” and 4 percent “not safe at all.”
Additionally, 96 percent of Eastern European Jewish respondents said they felt safer compared to 76 percent of Western European Jewish respondents.
However, 66 percent of respondents answered that they expect anti-Semitism to worsen in the next decade, though 73 percent are satisfied with their government’s response to security issues in Jewish communities.

According to police, the motive behind a Tuesday stabbing attack at the entrance of Beit Jala near Har Gilo, on the outskirts of Jerusalem, has not yet been established.
Investigations are underway to determine whether it was a terror attack or a criminally motivated incident.
Following the incident, the assailant fled the scene. Border Police and IDF forces are conducting a manhunt in the area in a bid to find the stabber.
According to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital, the victim sustained several stab wounds including to his face, but was conscious and in light condition.

By World Israel News Staff
A letter Prof. Albert Einstein wrote thanking the orphans from the Ben Shemen Youth Village in Israel for sandals they made for him on his birthday is being put up for sale by King David Auctions in Jerusalem and is expected to fetch thousands of dollars, Israel Hayom reports.
It may be one of the last letters he wrote as it’s dated March 26, 1955, only three weeks before his death on April 18.
Einstein sent the letter to his good friend, Dr. Siegfried Lehman, the founder and director of the Ben Shemen Youth Village. The two studied together at university.
Lehman, who was born in Berlin in 1892, started a shelter for war orphans in Kaunus, Lithuania in 1919 and immigrated, (or “made Aliyah”) in 1926 together with his young students from the shelter and founded the youth village in Ben Shemen.
“The beautiful sandals arrived in perfect condition and were already inaugurated,” Einstein wrote in German. “And every time I slide my feet inside and out I’ll remember you with love and thanks. I wish you a happy and productive time.”
Einstein died a short time later and Israel Hayom says it’s not too much to conclude that the letter arrived only after his death.



Opinion: Boycotting Ivanka and Jared, how Trump-hating Jews go too far

Opinion: Boycotting Ivanka and Jared, how Trump-hating Jews go too farJewish senior members of the US administration: Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner (AP/Alex Brandon)
The effort to treat the presidential daughter and son-in-law as unwelcome in the American Jewish community deepens the partisan divide in a way that undermines Jewish values.
By Jonathan S. Tobin, JNS.org
According to The New York Times, Ivanka and Jared Kushner aren’t going to have an easy time of it when and if they return to New York City after working in the administration of her father. The presidential daughter and son-in-law may be credited with helping guide the administration towards a strong pro-Israel stance, including a historical shift involving the move of the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. But as far as many Jews are concerned, they are a disgrace and should be treated as such.
That was the conceit of a feature article on the cover of the Styles section of last Sunday’s New York Times, which took as its premise the notion that involvement in the Trump administration was the sort of thing that decent people could not stomach.
I don’t doubt that many Jewish New Yorkers shared the point of view of one former high school classmate of Jared Kushner that he was complicit in acts of Chillul Hashem (literally, “desecrating the name of God”) or, as the Times’ somewhat inadequate definition put it, “when a Jew behaves immorally while in the presence of others.” The majority of American Jews are liberals and Democrats, and they regard U.S. President Donald Trump as beyond the pale.
You can criticize the president’s behavior or oppose some of his policies. But to assert that those serving the nation in his administration should be considered unworthy of being called to the Torah at synagogue—as one rabbi asserted to the Times—is injecting partisan fervor into Jewish life in a way that is unhealthy for both the country and the Jews. More than that, those who wish to treat the Kushners as pariahs are at least as, if not more, guilty of helping to destroy the fabric of American democracy as anything they imagine Trump is doing.

A finely crafted silver cigarette case that may have saved a life in the Lodz Ghetto has been brought to Israel.
By World Israel News Staff
A finely crafted silver cigarette case that may have saved a life in the Lodz Ghetto was handed over to the Faith & the Holocaust Institute for Education & Research, also known as the Shem Olam Institute, and transferred to Israel, Ma’ariv reports.
The case belonged to the director of the prison in the ghetto. It bares his name, Shlomo Soloman Hertzberg, and the symbol he wore on his arm denoting his rank as prison director.
Chaim Klieger, an artist, gave Hertzberg the case as a bribe in order to free a friend who was in the prison, or at least ease the conditions in which he was held, according to Ma’ariv. The fate of most of those in the Lodz Ghetto were labor camps or unknown destinations, the paper reports.
Remarkably, the cigarette case survived the war and was found among the ruins of the ghetto walls by a Polish man who kept it for a decade before handing it over to the Shem Olam Institute.
It’s unknown for certain if Klieger’s gift succeeded in freeing his friend. Klieger himself survived the war and immigrated to Israel, where he died in the 1950s.
“We’re talking about a very special object that wasn’t found during that period, certainly not during the days of the Second World War,” said the head of the Shem Olam Institute. “The artist decided to pass this object as a bribe, even though he knew it was an outstanding creation of art, in order to save the life of his friend. The fact that the case survived after so many years testifies to the quality and artistry.”

The Israeli prime minister railed against staging elections in the middle of a highly volatile security situation.
By TPS
Now is not the time to go to early elections while Israel is amidst one of the “most complex” security situations it has known in its history, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday evening at a press conference in Tel Aviv as he declared he would take up the post of defense minister vacated by Avigdor Liberman last week, when he resigned over the government’s Gaza policy throwing the coalition into crisis.
Minutes before Netanyahu addressed the nation on prime time television, Jewish Home leader an Education Minister Naftali Bennett and his deputy, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked, said they would be holding a press conference at 10 a.m. Monday.
Shaked said earlier this week that if Bennett was not appointed defense minister, the Jewish Home would pull out of the coalition, effectively bringing down the government which has a narrow 61-59 majority in the 120 seat Knesset, following Liberman’s resignation.
Prior to the press conference, Netanyahu met with his finance minister Moshe Kahlon, head of the Kulanu party to try and persuade him to remain in the coalition. Sources close to Kahlon said that the meeting failed to yield and agreement, but the two leaders would meet again later in the week.
Both Bennett and Kahlon, along with Shas chairman Aryeh Deri have said the country is better off holding elections as soon as possible.

By: Adina Katz, World Israel News
Ministers Naftali Bennett and Ayelet Shaked of the Jewish Home party were expected to announce their resignation Monday morning, leaving the coalition government with less than a majority and making early elections inevitable. Instead, they backed down but called for a change in government policy.
Bennett, who serves as education minister, had demanded the defense ministry after Avigdor Liberman’s resignation last week, threatening to remove his party from the coalition if Netanyahu does not comply.
Without Bennett as defense minister, “this government is called right-wing but in practice fulfills left-wing policy,” Shaked stated Sunday.

Bennett said his party will remain in the government but called for an overhaul of security policies, stressing that Israel must start winning again. 
By Jack Gold, World Israel News
Jewish Home leader and Minister of Education Naftali Bennett called on the government to “change the course of its ship” and adopt an offensive and uncompromising security policy.
After announcing at a press conference on Monday that his party will remain part of the coalition, despite threats last week that he would leave if not given the defense minister portfolio, Bennett said that Israel needs to return to winning its battles.
Bennett heavily criticized Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s defense policies but said he would “stand by his side” in an attempt to rectify Israel’s “deep security crisis.”
“The State of Israel is in the midst of a security crisis,” said Bennett. “Cruel enemies are nothing new to us. The situation hasn’t changed.”
In an address to the nation from the defense ministry in Tel Aviv, Netanyahu warned Sunday evening, referring largely to the terror emanating from Gaza, that Israel is “in a battle that has not yet ended. In such a sensitive period of security, it is irresponsible to topple the government.”
Responding to that assertion, Bennett said that “there is no apocalypse on the horizon. There are challenges, enemies,” as Israel has always faced.

By Atara Beck, World Israel News
American-Muslim political activist Linda Sarsour, a leader of the Women’s March on Washington, is urging her followers to sign a petition in support of Congresswoman-elect Ilhan Omar, who is “being attacked for saying that she supports BDS and the right for people to engage in constitutionally protected freedoms.”
The petition, titled #IStandWithIlhan, opens with the sentence: “We stand with you in the face of Islamophobic organizations attempting to attack you and undermine your leadership.”
“We need YOU,” Sarsour posted Thursday evening on Facebook, telling readers not to “stand idly while a brave Black Muslim American woman is targeted for saying she will uphold the constitution of the United States of America as a member of the US Congress.”

Seeking to secure Israel’s Jewish majority and character, Israel will not join the Global Compact for Migration.
By Jack Gold, World Israel News
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced that Israel will not join the United Nations’ (UN) Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM).
In a statement Tuesday, Netanyahu, who also serves as Israel’s foreign minister, said he had instructed the Foreign Ministry to announce that Israel will not accede to, and will not sign, the GCM.
“We are committed to guarding our borders against illegal migrants. This is what we have done and this is what we will continue to do,” he stated.
The US, Austria and Hungry reportedly had asked Israel, which was initially involved in formulating the GCM, not to sign the treaty. These three countries – together with Australia, the Czech Republic, Romania and Bulgaria – have not joined the pact, saying that it impeded their sovereignty.

Women’s March founder calls on leaders to quit: ‘They let anti-Semitism in’

Women’s March founder calls on leaders to quit: ‘They let anti-Semitism in’Women’s March leaders (L-R) Tamika Mallory, Bob Bland, Carmen Perez and
Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory have been repeatedly slammed for praising Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, a known anti-Semite.
By JNS.org
With charges of anti-Semitism and other bigotry against the Women’s March, the movement’s founder called on its leaders on Monday to quit.
“As Founder of the Women’s March, my original vision and intent was to show the capacity of human beings to stand in solidarity and love against the hateful rhetoric that had become a part of the political landscape in the U.S. and around the world,” Theresa Shook wrote in a Facebook post.
“Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory, Linda Sarsour and Carmen Perez of Women’s March, Inc. have steered the Movement away from its true course,” continued Shook. “I have waited, hoping they would right the ship. But they have not. In opposition to our Unity Principles, they have allowed anti-Semitism, anti-LBGTQIA sentiment and hateful, racist rhetoric to become a part of the platform by their refusal to separate themselves from groups that espouse these racist, hateful beliefs. I call for the current Co-Chairs to step down and to let others lead who can restore faith in the Movement and its original intent.”
Sarsour and Mallory have been repeatedly slammed for praising Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, a known anti-Semite whose annual Saviour’s Day was attended in February by Mallory.
Last week, actors Alyssa Milano and Debra Messing spoke out against anti-Semitism associated with movement, with the former announcing that she will not speak at next year’s march and the latter backing the decision.

Airbnb’s decision Monday to ban Judea and Samaria listings from its home-rental site sparked strong reactions. 
By World Israel News Staff
Airbnb’s decision on Monday to ban Judea and Samaria apartment listings from its popular home-rental site kindled strong reactions from Jews and Arabs.
The strongest reaction, perhaps, came from Israel’s Minister of Tourism, Yariv Levin, who released a video of himself condemning Airbnb’s move, calling it “the most wretched of wretched capitulations to the boycott efforts.”
“We’re looking into submitting appeals against Airbnb in the U.S.,” Levin said, according to Israel’s state-owned Kan news.
“We’re also looking into imposing taxes on the company in order to exact a heavy price on account of their decision. Settlement in Yesha [Judea and Samaria] will emerge stronger in light of this experience,” he said.
The San Francisco-based company admitted its decision, which affects some 200 listings, was for political reasons. In a statement on its website, the company made it clear that it had accepted the Palestinian narrative of the conflict.

“The ascendancy of Sharia ideology in Nigeria rings the death toll for the Nigerian Church,” the Christian Association of Nigeria stated.
By Raymond Ibrahim, The Gatestone Institute
In what the Christian Association of Nigeria called a “pure genocide,” 238 more Christians were killed and churches desecrated by Muslims throughout the month of June. This brings the death toll of Christians to more than 6,000 between January and June of 2018 alone.
According to a joint statement by the Christian Association, an umbrella group of various Christian denominations, “There is no doubt that the sole purpose of these attacks is aimed at ethnic cleansing, land grabbing and forceful ejection of the Christian natives from their ancestral land and heritage.” In one of the attacks, “over 200 persons were brutally killed and our churches destroyed without any intervention from security agencies in spite of several distress calls made to them.”
The majority of those 6,000 Christians massacred this year were “mostly children, women and the aged… What is happening in … Nigeria is pure genocide and must be stopped immediately,” the Association stated.

Benjamin Netanyahu will meet a second time with his minister of finance to stave off early elections.
By David Isaac, World Israel News
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet a second time with Minister of Finance Moshe Kahlon on Sunday evening in one last attempt to stave off early elections.
Kahlon, who is also the head of the Kulanu Party, which represents 10 seats in the governing coalition, said Thursday that the government should go to elections as soon as possible, following Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman’s resignation on Wednesday.
Netanyahu will try to convince Kahlon to reverse his position and support the continuation of the coalition government, who ruling majority has been reduced to a slender 61 seats of 120 in Israel’s parliament.
Kahlon and Naftali Bennett, education minister and head of the Jewish Home Party, spoke yesterday and agreed that if Netanyahu can’t find a creative solution to the crisis today, they will vote on Wednesday for dissolving the Knesset, Army Radio reported Sunday.
Netanyahu cancelled two meetings scheduled for today in order to conduct negotiations designed to prevent an early end to his government coalition, cobbled together from five parties, including his own Likud Party.

The Jewish Home Party requested of Netanyahu that he reappoint MK Ben-Dahan to the post as his tenure would automatically expire with the resignation of Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman.
Netanyahu promised to bring up the matter at the Cabinet meeting Sunday but failed to do so, Israel’s Channel 2 news reports.
Prime Minister Netanyahu, who received the defense portfolio with the resignation of Minister Liberman, did not reappoint Jewish Home MK Rabbi Eli Ben-Dahan to the position of deputy defense minister, Channel 2 reported.

Will Netanyahu give Bennett defense portfolio?(Flash90)
In a reversal, PM Netanyahu may grant Education Minister Naftali Bennett’s request to head the defense department, according to reports.
By World Israel News Staff
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu may be prepared to give Education Minister Naftali Bennett the defense portfolio, reversing his earlier refusal, according to reports.
The prime minister’s office revealed Sunday morning that Netanyahu is prepared to give the Jewish Home Party chairman the minister of defense post, Channel 13 reports.
Bennett’s party demanded that he be given the defense portfolio on Wednesday, voting unanimously in a special meeting.
Bennett had repeatedly attacked outgoing Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman’s policy of restraint over the last  months as rockets, fire kites and balloon bombs rained down on Israel’s south since the start of the so-called “March of Return,” the Hamas-organized riots on the Gaza-Israel border.
Liberman himself criticized Israel’s policy when he announced his resignation last Tuesday following Israel’s decision to agree to a ceasefire with the terrorist organization. It did so after enduring a barrage of roughly 500 rockets from the Gaza Strip.

According to one poll, 74 percent of Israelis disapproved of how the prime minister dealt with the confrontation with Hamas.
By TPS
Two polls done by Israeli television news outlets have shown that the majority of citizens are unhappy with the way Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu handled the Gaza flare-up this week.
According to a poll done by Channel 2 News on Wednesday night, 74 percent of Israelis disapproved of how the prime minister dealt with the confrontation with Hamas.
In addition, 69 percent of those who participated said they were dissatisfied with outgoing Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman’s performance, while 51 percent, were dissatisfied with the IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot.
In a similar poll conducted by Israel Public Broadcaster Kan, 36 percent rated Netanyahu’s performance following the flare-up with Hamas, as “very bad,” 29 percent rated it as “bad,” while 12 percent rated it as “good,” and only 7 percent said Netanyahu had done a “very good” job of dealing with the situation.
In addition, 64 percent were angered about the ceasefire, favoring expanded military operations in Gaza, while only 21 percent of those who took part said Israel needed to agree to the ceasefire with Hamas.
If snap elections were to be called now, Netanyahu’s Likud party would receive only 29 seats – which is down from 31 in March.

Hamas claims it proved its military prowess in last week’s shootout with an IDF undercover unit. 
By Jack Gold, World Israel News Staff
Hamas has declared the recent round of violence with Israel as a victory for the terrorist organization, saying it was successful in thwarting the IDF’s plans.
In an interview with Hamas’ Al-Aqsa TV on Sunday, Hamas official Khalil al-Haya described the Israeli operation in Gaza, during which IDF Lt. Col. M. was killed and another IDF officer wounded, as a victory for Hamas.
Six Hamas terrorists, including a senior officer, were also killed in the shootout.
“The IDF attempted to plant listening devices [in Gaza], but the Palestinian resistance stood guard,” al-Haya stated.
A week after the botched IDF secret reconnaissance operation on the outskirts of Khan Younis, Hamas continues to present the deadly clash as a great success for the terror group.

“I did not place an ultimatum on Bennett’s appointment as defense minister,” he said in an interview with Channel 13’s Meet the Press.
On Friday, Netanyahu reportedly told Bennett, who heads the Jewish Home Party, that he couldn’t appoint him as defense minister because Kahlon opposed it.

Earlier that day, Minister of Defense Avigdor Liberman announced his resignation, leaving the Likud-led government with a narrow coalition of 61 Members of Knesset.
Noting the government’s achievements for the right, such as the Regulation Law and Israeli sovereignty over Ariel University in Samaria, Shaked said there is still much to be done, and it “is already clear that it will not be done under this government,” Israel National News reported.

By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
At a rally Friday attended by hundreds in Gaza, Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar waved a handgun in the air, shouting into the microphone that Israel’s economic capital was in imminent danger.
“Next time, the barrage of rockets will reach Tel Aviv and Gush Dan [the surrounding area],” he declared in a display of power at a memorial event for seven terrorists who were killed by Israeli special forces during a firefight last Sunday. That incident set off the latest attack by Hamas and Islamic Jihad in which 470 rockets and mortars were fired at southern Israeli communities over the next day and a half.
The Iron Dome defensive system shot down approximately one hundred missiles, but several dozen managed to hit populated areas, injuring dozens and destroying several homes and businesses.
Israel retaliated by hitting some 150 targets, including terrorist tunnels and command centers in precision bombing attacks, killing only a handful of terrorists. The IDF had warned Gazans about the locations of the bombings ahead of time in order to prevent civilian casualties.

UN first: US opposes resolution nullifying Israel’s right to Golan

UN first: US opposes resolution nullifying Israel’s right to GolanUnited Nations US Ambassador Nikki Haley (AP/Bebeto Matthews)
The United States has voted for the first time against a U.N. resolution in favor of Syria’s possession of the Golan Heights, which it lost after attacking Israel in the 1967 war.
By AP and World Israel News Staff
The United Nations General Assembly’s “decolonization committee” voted 152-2 in favor of a resolution attacking Israel’s control of the Golan Heights, with 14 abstentions.
The U.S. previously abstained on the resolution, but on Friday it voted “no” for the first time, joined by Israel, which has retained control of the area since Syria and three other Arab nations attacked Israel in 1967’s Six-Day War.
The Golan Heights remains a strategic linchpin for Israel, protecting it from the Iranian military, which operates freely in Syria and is sworn to Israel’s destruction, and Islamic terror groups such as ISIS.
The resolution, which passed along with eight other anti-Israel resolutions, declares Israel’s jurisdiction and administration of “the occupied Syrian Golan” to be “null and void.”
U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley announced in advance that the U.S. would vote “no,” calling the resolution “biased against Israel.”
She added, “[T]he atrocities the Syrian regime continues to commit prove its lack of fitness to govern anyone.”
The resolution is virtually certain to be adopted by the 193-member General Assembly in December, which is dominated by nations that are hostile to Israel.
The consistent and disproportionate focus of U.N. agencies on condemning Israel has led the Jewish state, and its closest ally, the U.S., to withdraw from bodies such as UNESCO and the U.N. Human Rights Council, the latter of which focuses on Israel at the expense of some of the world’s worst human rights abusers, such as Syria, North Korea, and Iran.

The Jewish Home Party is leaving the coalition, forcing early elections, according to reports. But Netanyahu says the rumors aren’t true.
By World Israel News Staff
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s main coalition partner, the Jewish Home Party, announced it’s seeking elections “as soon as possible” and wants a date set on Sunday.
The news came after the Jewish Home Party’s chairman and current education minister, Naftali Bennett, met with Netanyahu on Friday.
The Associated Press quotes an unnamed Jewish Home official who said it became clear after the Bennett-Netanyahu meeting that there “is a need to go to elections as soon as possible.” He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was discussing the content of a closed meeting.
The Jewish Home party official said leaders of the coalition parties will meet Sunday to coordinate the date for early elections.
However, Netanyahu denied the reports, according to a spokesman, who quoted the prime minister saying, “the rumors that a decision has been made to go to an early election are not correct.”
Media in Israel are reporting that the reason the Jewish Home Party is leaving is because Netanyahu rejected Bennett’s demand that he be made minister of defense.

He said, “Israel does not want an escalation or to hurt innocent civilians, but will not stand by while Hamas undermines stability and our civilians are harmed.”
Rivlin was referring to the firing of more than 450 rockets and mortar ‎‎shells on Israel’s south starting ‎from Monday afternoon and continuing overnight to Tuesday morning, ‎killing one person and wounding ‎‎55 in the worst ‎flare-up in the area since ‎‎2014.‎
Rivlin said that before any agreement could be reached with the terrorist organization, Hamas must first return the two Israeli civilians it is holding captive and the bodies of two Israel Defense Forces’ soldiers killed in 2014’s “Operation Protective Edge.”

It is not only an outlook that sees the Diaspora as so much better than a renewed clannish ghetto. It is the concept of Israel itself, as much as it is their misrepresentation of what Israel is and does.
By Yisrael Medad, JNS.org
The template of Babylon vs. Zion has taken many forms since the majority of Jews, in exile after the destruction of the First Temple and the loss of Jewish political independence, declined to return to the Land of Israel. It exists among Orthodox Jews and the less-to-non-observant Jews. Jews of the right and the left. Jews of strong identity and those who seek to be assimilated. But there is a new category today.
If, in the past, Jewish nationalism was disfavored or even rejected more because of how the Jews preferring a Diaspora existence viewed themselves, we now see an increasing willingness, if not a perverse delight, in dissing Israel not as a particularly internal Jewish matter, from the Bundists, the early Reform, the American Council for Judaism to the Neturei Karta and British Jewish opponents of the Balfour Declaration, but as a matter which is to be judged as how the Jews are affected in their Diaspora locations.

UNRWA scrambles to fill gaping hole left by US cuts

This week, the Palestinians’ UN agency received extra contributions to fill the gap left after the United States decided to pull all funding.
By Joseph Wolkin
The United Nations dedicated agency for Palestinians entered recovery mode when President Donald Trump cut more than $200 million in aid this past August that was supposed to run throughout 2018.
The agency, UNRWA, aimed to fill the gap for its $1.2 billion budget. When Trump opted to drop out of UNRWA altogether, it left UNRWA with an overall $446 million deficit.
On Thursday, UNRWRA announced it is close to filling out the gap.
Trump and Nikki Haley, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, have taken several stands against UNRWA over the past two years, opposing its terror incitement, anti-Semitic curriculum in UNRWA schools, and perpetration of the Palestinian “refugee” quagmire.
UNRWA’s chief, Pierre Kraehenbuehl, gained extra support from several Muslim-majority nations, including pledges from Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabi and the United Arab Emirates. Each of the countries are now giving UNRWA $50 million each.
“I’ll be very honest in saying, I don’t think many people believed that we would be able to overcome a $446 million shortfall at the beginning of the year,” Kraehenbuehl said.

The Ministry of Defense has formulated a plan to grant former members of the South Lebanon Army (SLA) who live in Israel funds to purchase homes, Israel Hayom reported Monday.
The plan will be brought to the Cabinet for approval in the coming days, the report said.
Each SLA veteran will be entitled to NIS 500,000 towards housing. The grant will be provided over the course of the next five years.
With some 300 eligible veterans, the aid is estimated to cost a total of NIS 150 million.
The former SLA fighters and family members live mostly in northern Israel.
The aid is being given “in recognition of the activities of SLA veterans for Israel and taking into account their economic distress,” the proposal indicates. It is being done “in deep appreciation for their work for the state of Israel, and taking into account the economic distresses experienced by most of them, particularly the housing issue.”
