A senior US Republican senator warned Israel against striking a deal with Moscow, saying Russia cannot be trusted.

Just hours after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met in Moscow with Russian President Vladimir Putin to discuss Iran’s military entrenchment in Syria, a senior US Republican lawmaker warned Israel not to trust Russia.
“To our friends in Israel,” tweeted South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, “be very careful making agreements with Russia re Syria that affect US interests.”
“I don’t trust Russia to police Iran or anyone else in Syria,” he added. “US must maintain presence in Syria to ensure ISIS doesn’t come back and to counter Russia/Iran influence.”

Israel’s expansion of Jewish communities beyond the Green Line has made opposition to a BDS bill more difficult, Ireland’s Ambassador to Israel told The Jerusalem Post. 
By: World Israel News Staff
Israeli actions in Judea and Samaria make it difficult for the Irish government to oppose a pending bill criminalizing trade with Israeli companies based in Jerusalem, the Golan Heights, Judea and Samaria, Ireland’s Ambassador to the Israel Alison Kelly told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday.
The Control of Economic Activity (Occupied Territories) Bill 2018 passed its initial vote in the Irish Senate on Wednesday. The measure would make it a criminal offense in Ireland, punishable by a fine of up to €250,000 ($292,000) or up to five years in prison, for a person “to import or sell goods or services originating in an occupied territory or to extract resources from an occupied territory in certain circumstances; and to provide for related matters.”

While the Russian and Israeli leaders sat down for talks in the Kremlin, a senior Iranian envoy also headed to Moscow amid intensive Syria-focused diplomatic efforts ahead of Putin’s summit in Helsinki on Monday with President Donald Trump.
Netanyahu underlined warm ties between Russia and Israel, emphasizing what he described as their key stabilizing role for the Mideast.

Nine US House Democrats called for “the release of all assistance that has been on hold” to the Palestinians in a letter to US President Donald Trump.
The Democrats, during a meeting of the US House Foreign Affairs Middle East Subcommittee, expressed their concern that since January, “US assistance, including lifesaving humanitarian aid” to Palestinians, has been frozen.
Ambassador David Satterfield, testifying in his capacity as acting assistant secretary of state, said that the US National Security Council is leading an inter-agency review of US aid to the Palestinians but did not provide any significant information.

California Democrat accuses Israel of ‘genocide,’ praises anti-Semite FarrakhanCalifornia Democratic candidate Maria Estrada. (Screenshot)
A Democratic candidate for the California State Assembly claimed Israel commits genocide against the Palestinians and declared that she “enjoy[s] listening to Farakhan’s sermons.”
By: World Israel News Staff
Maria Estrada, who is running for a seat in the California State Assembly to represent a suburban Los Angeles district, recently qualified for the November election, despite a string of social media posts spurring accusations of anti-Semitism.
Among Estrada’s controversial posts is one from last year reported by JTA in which the aspiring assemblywoman stated, “Democrats turn a blind eye to the genocide against Palestinians and justify it by bringing up the Holocaust. As if what happened 70 years ago justifies it. Anyone who believes they are one of ‘God’s chosen people’ automatically feels superior and justified in all they do. Religious fanaticism is used to justify apartheid and crimes against Palestinians and no one should be okay with it. #FreePalestine.”
Estrada returned to accusing Israel of genocide this week, posting on Facebook, “The argument from Zionists is that the number of Palestinians has grown. Apparently they aren’t killing enough Palestinians for them to consider it a genocide.”

Israel placed a Palestinian TV station called the al-Quds Channel on a terror blacklist on Monday due to its role as a propaganda tool for Hamas.
By: World Israel News Staff
On Monday, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman officially designated a Palestinian television network called the al-Quds Channel as a terrorist organization.
Specifically, Liberman maintained that the station is actually a Hamas appendage used to spread propaganda from its Lebanon headquarters.
“According to up-to-date, reliable, cross-checked and diverse intelligence, the al-Quds station is a propaganda wing of Hamas, representing a central platform for distributing the terrorist organization’s messages,” the defense minister’s office announced in a statement.
Hamas responded by calling the station’s blacklisting an act of “terror,” with Arab members of the Knesset condemning Israel for supposedly limiting freedom of speech.

WATCH: Hamas arson terror on Israel’s south continues full force
 July 10, 2018
The arson terror from Gaza, which began three months ago, seems endless as Hamas continues to send incendiary kites and balloons over the border to Israeli territory.  
Arson terror
(Ruth Eitan, Sapir College/Facebook)
Adele Raemer, who lives in a kibbutz near the Gaza border, runs a Facebook page titled “Life on the border with Gaza.” She writes: “Where are the cries and rage of the environmentalists of the world now? What is this deafening silence I hear? Why aren’t there protests objecting to the environmental destruction of this ecosystem here in the Negev? This isn’t an earthquake or tornado that are acts of God. This isn’t even ‘Global Warming’ that will take years to control and needs powerful political lobbies and massive change of human behavior and habits. This is terrorists with primitive kites and balloons who need to be stopped.
“If Israel does it, by shooting at them, we will be condemned… so where is the answer of the international community to this senseless, purposeful destruction of the environment and land that the Palestinians claim to love, claim is theirs and yet are primitively, ruthlessly devastating?””

Hamas vows to make southern Israel ‘a hell’ in response to border closure

Hamas vows to make southern Israel ‘a hell’ in response to border closureHamas spokesperson Fawzi Barhoum (AP/Adel Hana)
Hamas condemned Israel’s closure of the Kerem Shalom crossing into Gaza, vowing to step up arson attacks and make southern Israel into “a hell.”
By: World Israel News Staff
Hamas said it will increase the number of bomb-laden kites and balloons launched from Gaza into Israel in response to Israel’s closure of the Kerem Shalom border crossing, the Hamas-affiliated Shehab new agency reported.
“We will turn the nights of the Israeli communities adjacent to the Gaza Strip into hell,” they threatened.
A group affiliated with Hamas that is responsible for launching the incendiary kites and balloons said in a statement, “We will escalate the conflict and intensify the launch of balloons at night in response to the decision of the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to close the crossings and tighten the siege.
“The decision by the Israeli government to tighten the siege on the Gaza Strip to pressure the rebel groups to prevent the launch of balloons is proof of its failure to manage the conflict with the rebellious youths who rose peacefully to lift the siege on Gaza.”
Tens of thousands of acres of crops and forests have been burned over the past few months since the kite and balloon attacks began.
Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum on Tuesday condemned the Israeli decision, saying the move to “further tighten the siege and prevent the entry of goods into the already crippled coastal enclave is a new crime against humanity added to the record of the Israeli occupation against the Palestinian people.”

A Saudi TV station has been criticized for airing a documentary deemed pro-Israel.
By: World Israel News Staff
A Saudi TV station has come under attack by Palestinian elements after its coverage of the Jewish state was deemed pro-Israel.
Al-Arabiya recently aired a two-part documentary on the establishment of the State of Israel from both the Arab and the Israeli perspectives. It was scripted to be free of “ideology or partisanship,” according to the network’s description.
The Palestinian Anti-Normalization Center condemned Al-Arabiya “in the strongest terms,” denouncing the film as “a media Nakba” and charging that it “steps over historical facts and objective truths.”
The Nakba (catastrophe) is how the Palestinians refer to the creation of the Jewish state.
Saudi Arabia and Israel have no formal diplomatic relations, but reports have emerged of covert meetings between Israeli and Saudi officials.
The center warned that this latest incident was “another chain in a normalization series aiming to propagate a counterfeit version of the establishment of the Zionist entity.”
“The history of the Palestinian cause is as clear as daylight. Neither Al-Arabiya TV channel nor any other party will succeed in falsifying history,” the center stated.

A Somali-American Muslim woman running to replace Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) previously accused Israel of “evil doings” in the Gaza Strip and accused Israel of being an “apartheid state.”
In a November 2012 tweet, Ilhan Omar, who is currently a Minnesota state representative, said that “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”
Her 2012 tweet came after the Israel Defense Forces launched an operation in the Gaza Strip following the launching of 100 rockets at the Jewish state.
In May, Omar responded to criticism of the 2012 tweet, by accusing Israel of being an “apartheid state.”
“Drawing attention to the apartheid Israeli regime is far from hating Jews. You are a hateful sad man, I pray to Allah you get the help you need and find happiness,” she wrote on Twitter on May 28, 2018.

By: World Israel News Staff
Responding to the unceasing wave of bomb-laden kites and balloons that have set fire to thousands of acres in the south, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced Monday that the Kerem Shalom crossing between Gaza and Israel will be closed.
The decision was made in consultation with IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eizenkot and Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman.
Addressing a Likud faction meeting, Netanyahu said that Israel will step up its efforts to stop the kites and balloons loaded with incendiary materials that are organized and directed by Hamas.
“About Gaza, I have been telling you for some time that I do not intend to publicize in advance all the steps that we are taking or planning. But the Defense Minister and I agree that we will be heavy-handed with the Hamas regime in the Gaza Strip – immediately. In a significant step, today we are closing the Kerem Shalom crossing. There will be additional steps; I will not go into details.”
The closure of Kerem Shalom will not include humanitarian aid, food and medicine, approved on an individual basis by Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories Kamil Abu Rokon.

According to Syrian state TV and other Arab media outlets, an Israeli air strike on Sunday night targeted Iranian forces at the T-4 base in Syria’s Homs province.
By: World Israel News Staff
On Sunday, Syria’s official state television network SANA reported that the T-4 airbase near Homs had been struck with missiles attributed to the Israeli Air Force (IAF).
According to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a civil war watchdog, Iranian troops and non-Syrian pro-Iranian forces were the strike’s intended targets.
Following the attack, Israel issued no comment confirming or denying the Jewish state’s role in the incident, in line with official policy.
Iran’s presence in Syria remains a red line for Israel, which has carried out dozens of attacks to thwart Iranian military entrenchment in the war-torn nation.
While Iran plays a key role propping up the regime of brutal Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, it also uses its positions in Syria to transfer weapons and infrastructure to its terror proxy in Lebanon, Hezbollah, a sworn enemy of Israel.
Prior to the strike on Sunday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu again demanded that Iran retreat from Syria, a position he will pursue when he meets with Russian President Vladimir Putin this week.

The High Court of Justice ruled that the state can return the bodies of three Palestinian terrorists to their families for burial.
By: World Israel News Staff
The High Court of Justice on Monday ruled that the state can return the bodies of three Palestinian terrorists to their families for burial.
Two were shot dead by Israeli forces during terror attacks and a third during an arrest.
The court gave the ruling after studying confidential documents which led it to conclude that returning the bodies is consistent with a government decision in January 2017 not to return the bodies of terrorists who were members of the Hamas terror organization.
The Goldin family, whose son’s body is held by Hamas in Gaza, petitioned the court against the government’s decision to return the bodies.
IDF soldier Hadar Goldin was killed and abducted by Hamas during a battle with terrorists in Shajaiya during Operation Protective Edge in the summer of 2014. Two other IDF soldiers also died in the incident. The battle ensued hours after a UN-sponsored ceasefire came into effect.
The Goldins have repeatedly opposed any release of terrorists’ bodies if the move is not reciprocated by the Palestinians.

A Palestinian BDS group has called on the Iroquois Nationals to pull out of the lacrosse competition in Israel, but the team rejected the appeal.
By: World Israel News Staff
The BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement has been trying to hinder the 2018 World Lacrosse Championships in Netanya, Israel, and has called on the Iroquois Nationals to pull out of the competition.
The Iroquois Nationals team represents the Iroquois Confederacy, a group of indigenous nations from the northeastern US and eastern Canada.
They are credited with inventing the sport of lacrosse.
“As indigenous peoples, we have both seen our traditional lands colonized, our people ethnically cleansed and massacred by colonial settlers,” the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) said in a letter to the Iroquois Nationals published last Wednesday.
“Like the Iroquois Confederacy and the Indigenous peoples of Turtle Island, we struggle daily for self-determination and against ongoing dispossession and colonization,” the letter adds, using an Iroquois term for the North American continent.

Netanyahu blasts committee for justifying polygamy among BedouinPM Benjamin Netanyahu (Yonatan Sindel/Flash90)
The prime minister slammed a Justice Ministry committee for recommending that polygamy be allowed in some cases among the Bedouin. 
By: World Israel News Staff 
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu slammed the conclusions of a Justice Ministry committee for recommending that polygamy be allowed in Israel’s Muslim community in certain cases.
“I am not willing to accept polygamy under any circumstances in the State of Israel,” Netanyahu tweeted Monday afternoon.
“And that is my express direction to a ministerial committee that is dealing with the issue.”
Netanyahu said that polygamy undermines a woman’s standing in society, facilitates her exploitation and disrupts the demographic balance by encouraging the importing of women who are not citizens of Israel.
“This phenomenon is unacceptable. Alongside strengthening the Bedouin community, we must also enforce the law more diligently.”
The Justice Ministry’s Inter-Ministerial Committee Report on Polygamy released its findings and recommendations last week.
The report found that polygamy is particularly discriminatory against the first wife and her children after a second wife is taken. Often, it represents a de facto divorce of the first wife without any of the protections afforded a woman who goes through divorce proceedings in a court of law, including financial support.

North Korea demanded $1b from Israel to cancel nuke cooperation with Iran

North Korea reportedly offered Israel to cut its weapons sales to Iran if Israel paid it $1 billion.
By: World Israel News Staff
North Korea’s ambassador to Sweden in 1999 made a proposal to his Israeli counterpart: Israel will give North Korea $1 billion in cash and Pyongyang will cancel its agreement to sell missile technology to Iran, the Wall Street Journal reported Sunday.
According to the report, based on the account of senior North Korean diplomat Thae Yong Ho, Israel refused and days later offered food aid instead. The talks ended without an agreement.
Since then, North Korea has steadily supplied conventional and ballistic weapons and nuclear technology to countries hostile to Israel, such as Iran and Syria.
North Korea has a history of selling dangerous technology, including helping Syria build a nuclear reactor and providing the country with chemical weapons. Israel bombed the Syrian nuclear facility in 2007.
As conflict spread across the Middle East since the Arab Spring in 2011, North Korea has stepped up small-arms shipments to Libya and Syria. A North Korean machine gun called the Type 73 has also turned up in battles in Yemen, Iraq and Syria, likely supplied by Iran, which imported them in the 1970s and 1980s.
The account of the proposal, recorded in a 2018 memoir by Thae, the translator at the supposed meeting who later defected to South Korea in 2016, demonstrates how North Korea has used the threat of weapons proliferation as leverage for cash that could in turn be used to finance its nuclear and missile programs.
Facing this mindset, the US is trying to bring about the denuclearization of North Korea.
However, North Korea has been pushing ahead with weapons programs simultaneously as it pursues dialogue with Washington.
Israel declined to comment on the events outlined by Thae.
Israel’s ambassador to Sweden at the time, Gideon Ben Ami, said in a television interview last week that he had three meetings with North Korean officials in 1999, but he did not mention the North Korean extortion attempt.

Jewish government ministers and MKs are once again visiting the Temple Mount after Netanyahu lifted a three-year ban. 
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
As soon as the Temple Mount visiting hours for Jews began Sunday morning at 7 a.m., Minister of Agriculture Uri Ariel (Jewish Home), together with a group he was leading, entered the compound from which he and all other Knesset members, Jewish and non-Jewish, had been barred since October 2015 by order of the prime minister.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu instituted the ban in an attempt to reduce tensions during a wave of terror attacks and Muslim threats of violence against Jews specifically linked to the Temple Mount, which is administered by the Jordanian Muslim Trust.
Netanyahu partially lifted the ban already last week by sending a letter to Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein stating that Knesset members could now visit the site once every three months. As opposed to a pilot attempt he sanctioned last year, ministers were included in the permit.

The Palestinian Authority’s Information Ministry on Sunday said that a visit to the Temple Mount by an Israeli minister was a terrorist act, “incitement against Islamic and Christian sanctuaries” and “a public call for the destruction of the al-Aqsa Mosque.”
The statement also said that the visit was an “act of aggression against worshipers,” the London-based Arab-language daily  Al-Sharq Al-Awsat reported.
On Sunday morning, Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel visited the Temple Mount as part of a tour of the area.

By: World Israel News Staff
The Trump administration will shift focus from a peace initiative to improving the humanitarian conditions in Gaza after Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas rejected all overtures from US President Donald Trump’s negotiation team.
According to a report in The Washington Post, the Trump administration hopes that making headway with the humanitarian crisis in Gaza will soften the intransigent PA leadership.
Quoting US officials, the Post reported that by improving the situation in Gaza, America would communicate to the Arab world its commitment to bettering the lives of Palestinians. This, it is hoped, would make it harder for Abbas and other Palestinian leaders to defy the Trump administration.
However, solving the many problems of Gaza are not seen as a pre-condition for launching Trump’s peace initiative.

Bill easing purchase of land in Judea and Samaria mulled by ministersMK Bezalel Smotrich (Yonatan Sindel/Flash90)
The proposed bill would allow anyone to purchase land in Area C regardless of the ethnic or national identity of the purchasers. 
By: World Israel News Staff
Israeli ministers are promoting a bill that would ease restrictions on the purchase of land by Jews in Area C in Judea and Samaria.
The Knesset ‘s Ministerial Legislative Committee is slated to discuss the bill on Sunday.
Area C in Judea and Samaria is under full Israeli sovereignty, as stipulated by the Oslo Accords.
The bill, put forward by Member of Knesset Bezalel Smotrich (Bayit Yehudi), aims to change a 1953 Jordanian law that prevents foreigners and non-Arabs from purchasing land in the area that was under their control at the time.
A 1971 order designed to circumvent the Jordanian law allows for a company registered to operate in Judea and Samaria to purchase property, regardless of the ethnic or national identity of the purchasers. Jews have purchased using this injection.
The proposed bill would allow anyone to directly purchase land in Area C.
Smotrich explained that it is “unacceptable” for Israeli citizens to be barred from buying land in Judea and Samaria just because they are Israeli citizens.

With planes and other advanced equipment, nine firefighting teams battled a huge fire on Saturday caused by Palestinian terrorists using an airborne incendiary device.
By: World Israel News Staff
On Saturday, terrorists in the Gaza Strip targeted Israel communities with incendiary kites, causing two major fires.
One of the fires, near Kibbutz Or Haner, burned out of control, requiring nine firefighting teams and firefighting aircraft, reported Channel 10 news.
The other fire was ignited near Kibbutz Nir Am.
Arson terror has become increasingly popular among Palestinian rioters near the Gaza border, who start fires by floating incendiary devices into Israeli territory using kites and helium balloons, the gas for which is reportedly pilfered from Gaza hospitals.
To date, Palestinian arson terrorists have caused millions of dollars of damage in Israel, destroying thousands of acres of farmland and nature preserves.
This Friday, demonstrations were staged on both sides of the Gaza border.

The order was given despite the fact that in May, the court itself had ordered the destruction of Khan al-Ahmar when it agreed with the Civil Administration that no permission had been granted for building the structures housing 180 residents.

The Binyamin region has been hit by a spate of violent car robberies perpetrated by Palestinians, mostly against Jews. 
By: World Israel News Staff
For the fourth time in the last month in the Binyamin region, Palestinians robbed a car by forcibly removing the Jewish driver.
The most recent robbery took place near Bir Zeit. The driver, 60, is from Ofra in Samaria.
According to reports, a white car carrying several Palestinians forced the Jewish driver off the road. Armed with metal rods, the Palestinians forcibly removed him and stole his car.
It is believed that the same group of robbers has carried out addition thefts, according to Hakol Hayehudi news site.
Three weeks ago, Palestinians stole a car packed with school supplies worth NIS 60,000 after using a screwdriver to intimidate the driver.
A few days after this incident, the same robbers attacked a woman driver at the entrance to Talmon in the Binyamin region. They broke a car window but the woman managed to escape in the vehicle.

Claudia Sheinbaum Pardo has made history in Mexico by being elected mayor of the country’s capital, say the exit polls from Sunday’s election.
That Sheinbaum Pardo is the first Jew elected to such an important post – heading North America’s largest city of nine million people – may not even be the biggest surprise, even though its Jewish community merely numbers between 30,000 and 36,000 (or most of the country’s total Jewish population). She is also the first woman to earn the post via election. The only other female mayor held the position on an interim basis for a year nearly two decades ago.

Opinion: The question of dual loyalty among diaspora Jews
https://worldisraelnews.com/opinion-the-question-of-dual-loyalty-among-diaspora-jews/?
 July 5, 2018
Opinion: The question of dual loyalty among diaspora JewsTwo women attend pro-Israel demonstration Washington. (Shutterstock)
Is the label of dual loyalty is accurate, and if so, is there something intrinsically wrong with a plurality of affiliations or sympathies?
By: Henry Roth
The strong connection most Jews feel towards Israel has led to us being criticized regularly and vehemently for having dual, and by implication, conflicting loyalties, i.e., those of us living in the Diaspora are supposedly as beholden to Israel as we are to our country of residence, if not more so.
It is true that other groups have been tarred with the same brush, such as American Roman Catholics when John Kennedy ran for President, but no group has been criticized as frequently or as ferociously on this issue as Jews have been. In fact, google “dual loyalty/Israel” and you’ll find almost two million references.
“Dual loyalty” alone generates nearly 20 million hits but amongst the 18 million items not related to Jews and Israel, yet there are relatively few that refer to other specific, identifiable religious or ethnic groups.
The question then is whether this label of dual loyalty is accurate, and if it is, is there something intrinsically wrong with a plurality of affiliations or sympathies?
Fo example, does supporting the right of Israelis to live in the Golan, Judea and Samaria (because one believes that Jews have a legitimate claim to those territories based on history and defensive necessity) constitute conflicting loyalties if the country in which we live claims those settlements are illegal?  No, it simply means that we do not agree with our government’s interpretation of relevant legal statutes or historical precedent.  This right of dissent is a bedrock principle of democracy.
The fact is that a Jew can be proudly Canadian or American or Irish or Mongolian or whatever and truly appreciate all the opportunities and freedom those nationalities provide without denying or minimizing the strong ties and spiritual connection that one has with Israel.  Why do we have to elevate one affiliation over the other?  Do we ask a child to declare which parent they love more
A stunning lack of historical knowledge
Questioning a Jew’s right to feel and express strong ties to Israel regardless of his or her country of residence is primarily based on the mistaken view that Israeli interests are somehow antithetical to the interests of other Western nations.  It also betrays a stunning lack of historical knowledge because for someone to minimize or dismiss the centrality of Israel (and especially Jerusalem) in Judaism is to ignore thousands of years of Jewish history.
Sadly, that history also encompasses unending persecution culminating in – but not ending with – the Holocaust, and Israel fulfills a unique and essential role in guaranteeing the present and future security of the Jewish people.
It may well be that Jews have to contend with this accusation of dual loyalties more so than any other identifiable group simply because what happens in Israel has far-reaching geopolitical ramifications.  An Italian-American, for example, doesn’t have to face the issue because very little of what transpires nowadays in Italy has an impact elsewhere. Israel, on the other hand, sits in the middle of the tinder-box that is the Middle East.
Can Israel be blamed for terrorism?
But to blame Israel, a tiny country of 8.5 million people, for worldwide terrorism and spikes in energy prices while ignoring the devastating fallout of the tribalism and religious extremism of the nearly half a billion Arabs in the region is to invert cause and effect.
Jews should not be hesitant to loudly proclaim their support for Israel, and if the result is to be labeled ‘dual loyalist’, then we should understand that the epithet says more about the accuser than it says about us.

Germany is brokering a deal to swap the remains of two IDF soldiers and two Israeli citizens held captive in Gaza for the release of Hamas terrorists.
By: World Israel News Staff
German is “engaged” in indirect negotiations between Israel and Hamas over a possible exchange deal which would result in the release of two mentally ill Israelis who wandered into Gaza and the remains of two IDF soldiers, according to Al-Hayat, a pan-Arab daily.
The remains and the civilian captives would be exchanged for the release of Hamas terrorists serving time in Israeli jails.
IDF soldiers Hadar Goldin and Oron Shaul were killed in action during Operation Protective Edge in 2014. The EU has said that Hamas violates human rights laws by holding their remains.
Two Israeli civilians who are said to be mentally ill — Avera Mengistu and Hisham al-Sayed — entered Gaza of their own volition in 2014 and 2015, respectively.
According to sources who spoke with Al-Hayat, German mediator Ernst Orlau, who was involved in the 2011 Shalit deal,  is involved in the present negotiations.
Israel released 1,027 Hamas terrorists in exchange for IDF soldier Gilad Shalit. Some returned to terrorism.

Meanwhile, other media sources reported, based on Iraqi intelligence, that Russian forces were responsible for killing him in a missile attack on a Syrian cave in which he was hiding.
Iraq’s Falcon intelligence cell said Russian forces on Monday fired three missiles at a cave in Homs that held 30 “terrorist leaders” and several of Badri’s bodyguards.
It said 11 people were killed in the attack.
The statement on social media dated this month, said he was an elite fighter, known as an “inghimasi,” who was killed while fighting Syrian and Russian troops at a power station in the central Homs province. It did not specify when he was killed.

Polish priest set for sainthood criticized for anti-Semitism

Polish priest set for sainthood criticized for anti-SemitismWorld War II-era Cardinal August Hlond (Wikipedia)

The Vatican is on the way to bestowing sainthood upon a Holocaust-era Polish cardinal who was “extremely” hostile to Jews.
By: AP
Pope Francis’ decision to move the World War II-era head of Poland’s Catholic Church a step closer to possible sainthood has hit a stumbling block, after two leading Jewish organizations and even Polish Catholic publications called him out for anti-Semitic views.
It’s not clear if the protests will derail the sainthood cause of Cardinal August Hlond, but in the past the Vatican has taken such protests seriously and at the very least put the cases up for closer review.
In May, Francis approved a decree recognizing Hlond’s “heroic virtues.” Now the Vatican must confirm a miracle attributed to Hlond’s intercession for him to be beatified, and a second one for him to be made a saint.
Hlond, born July 5, 1881, was the highest-ranking church official in Poland from 1926 to his death in 1948. He is highly respected in this overwhelmingly Catholic country for having rejected Nazi Germany’s proposals for a collaborative government, and for protecting the church’s independence during the first years of communism.

French filmmaker and Holocaust documentarian Claude Lanzmann passed away at the age of 92.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
French film-maker and journalist Claude Lanzmann, who is most famous for his nine-and-a half-hour tour de force documentary on the Holocaust has died at age 92. No cause of death at a Paris hospital was given.
Lanzmann shot the movie, called simply “Shoah,” over the course of 11 years, from 1974 to 1985. It has no horrific footage of the death camps or chilling music. Its power lay instead in the interviews he conducted with representatives of all sides of the war — German perpetrators, Polish collaborators and bystanders, and Jewish victims – with the background scenery often being the remains of the concentration camps and the Polish countryside.
He went undercover when he talked to the Germans and Poles so that they would not know the real reason he was filming them. Once he was attacked and had to be hospitalized for a month, but it did not stop him.
“I knew that the subject of the film would be death itself. Death rather than survival,” Lanzmann wrote in his autobiography. “For 12 years I tried to stare relentlessly into the black sun of the Shoah.”
Though not without its critics (especially in Poland, who decried the absence of any mention of Polish rescuers of Jews, among other faults), Shoah is considered by many to be among the best documentaries of all time.

US Supreme Court Justice receives lifetime award in Israel

US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg received the Genesis Prize in Israel. 
By: AP
US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg received a lifetime achievement award Wednesday from a prominent Jewish organization in Israel.
Ginsburg cited Holocaust diarist Anne Frank among others in a speech at a ceremony in Tel Aviv that touched on her fight for women’s rights and quoted from Jewish traditions and history.
Ginsburg, 85, has served on the Supreme Court since 1993. She was the second female justice and often cites her Jewish heritage as a source for her love of learning and sensitivity to the plight of oppressed minorities.
“When I became active in the movement to open doors to women, enabling them to enter occupations once closed to them — lawyering and judging, bartending, policing, and firefighting, for example — I was heartened by the words of a girl of my generation,” Ginsburg said, referring to Anne Frank, who questioned gender inequality in her writings.
‘Born raised and proud of being a Jew’
Ginsburg quoted from a statement she gave years ago when she was asked about how her Jewish heritage fits together with her occupation as a judge.
“I am a judge, born, raised and proud of being a Jew. The demand for justice, for peace, for enlightenment runs through the entirety of Jewish history and Jewish tradition,” she said. “I hope that in all the years I continue to have the good fortune to serving on the bench of the Supreme Court of the United States I will have the strength and courage to remain steadfast in service of that demand.”

Report: Egypt destroyed Gaza tunnels, eliminated 3 terrorists

Report: Egypt destroyed Gaza tunnels, eliminated 3 terroristsEgyptian Army forces. (AP)
The Egyptian army announced Tuesday that it killed three terrorists in the Sinai Peninsula and blew up tunnels on the Gaza border to root out jihadists in the area.
By: World Israel News Staff
On Tuesday, the Egyptian army said its forces eliminated three terrorists in the Sinai Peninsula in addition to destroying tunnels on its border with Gaza near the city of Rafah.
The operation was carried out as part of a protracted campaign to identify and eliminate jihadists operating in the area, which has resulted in the deaths of over 200 suspected terrorists and around 35 Egyptian soldiers, according to AFP.
Starting in February, Egypt launched its “Sinai 2018” operation to try to flush out Islamic extremists from the region.
The operation on Tuesday caused “destruction of a number of tunnels in the city of Rafah in northern Sinai,” said the army in a statement reported by AFP.
While Rafah houses the only entrance to the Gaza Strip that is not controlled by Israel, and remains Egypt’s sole point of entry into and out of the coastal enclave, the border crossing has remained closed since 2013, with only intermittent openings.
The types of tunnels that were destroyed on Tuesday could be used by terrorists to enter North Sinai, claimed Egyptian officials.

An American-born citizen who federal authorities say recently scouted locations in Cleveland to attack people watching Fourth of July fireworks and talked of carrying out additional bombings has been charged with trying to support terrorism.
Federal authorities said Monday that Demetrius Pitts, 48, an avowed Muslim who also goes by the name Abdur Raheem Rafeeq, had repeatedly expressed his support for Al-Qaeda for more than a year and talked about setting off bombs at a July 4 parade and later in his hometown of Philadelphia.
Pitts, of Maple Heights, was due in federal court Monday in Cleveland. There were no court documents listing an attorney for him.
He was arrested Sunday after meeting an undercover agent and charged with attempted support of a terrorist organization.
FBI Special Agent Stephen Anthony said it was not clear how close Pitts was to carrying out his threats, but he said authorities couldn’t sit back and wait to find out.

By: World Israel News Staff
Supreme Court justices issued a temporary injunction Monday night against the State of Israel’s decision to create an autonomous Jewish municipality in Hebron.
The court asked the State of Israel to justify the creation of an autonomous Jewish municipality in Hebron that is not under the Palestinians’ rule.
The temporary injunction, which froze the decision to create the Jewish municipality, seemed to be a sign that the justices were leaning toward annulling altogether the autonomous Jewish municipality.
The restraining order was issued within the framework of a petition presented by Hebron’s Palestinian municipality, which is opposed to the existence of an autonomous Jewish municipality.

By: World Israel News Staff
A US judge has told the parents of Naftali Frankel, who was kidnapped and murdered by Hamas terrorists together with another two Israeli teens in the summer of 2014, that they were partially to blame for his death because they chose to send him to a school in an area supposedly prone to terror attacks.
The three Israeli teenagers, Eyal Yifrach, Gilad Shaer and Naftali Frankel, were kidnapped and murdered by Hamas terrorists in the summer of 2014 in the Gush Etzion area of Judea and Samaria. Their bodies were found in a shallow grave three weeks later on the route to Hebron. A couple of months later, Israeli Special Forces tracked down and killed the terrorists.
In 2015, Racheli Frankel, Naftali’s mother and a US citizen, filed a lawsuit against Iran and Syria in a federal court in Washington in a bid to hold them accountable for their son’s murder.
During the proceedings, Racheli Frankel recounted the devastating night of her son’s abduction and the subsequent torturous weeks.

Iran’s president is warning that regional oil supply could be jeopardized if the US gets its allies to stop buying Tehran’s oil.
By: AP
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is warning that regional oil supply could be jeopardized if the United States manages to get its allies to stop buying Tehran’s oil.
Rouhani spoke to Iranian expatriates in Switzerland during his visit there on Monday. He said the US has threatened not to allow Iran to continue exporting its oil.
“It seems they do not understand what they are saying when they say Iran will not be allowed to export even a single drop of oil,” Rouhani said in remarks aired by Iranian state television. “All right, if you can do such a thing, do it and see the result!”
Rouhani did not elaborate, but Iran long has asserted it could shut down the Strait of Hormuz, the narrow body of water that separates the Persian Gulf from the wider world. A third of all oil traded by sea passes through the strait and the U.S. Navy regularly has direct, tense encounters with Iran’s paramilitary Revolutionary Guard (IRGC) there.
Iran is OPEC’s (Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries) second-largest crude exporter with more than 2 million barrels a day.
After the US pulled out of the nuclear deal with Iran, Washington has been pushing allies to cut oil imports from Iran altogether by November.

Australia will discontinue direct aid to the Palestinian Authority because it suspects the money is freeing up funds used to support political violence.
By: World Israel News and AP
Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said Monday that Australia will stop giving about $7 million a year to the World Bank’s trust fund for Palestinian recovery and development, according to Australian media sources.
Australia said it has ended direct aid to the Palestinian Authority (PA) because Australian donations could increase the self-governing body’s capacity to pay Palestinians convicted of politically motivated violence.
The PA spends an estimated $300 million annually to pay stipends to Palestinians who committed acts of terror against Israelis and others as well as to families of these terrorists.
Bishop said Australia cut funding to the World Bank’s Multi-Donor Trust Fund for the Palestinian Recovery and Development Program after writing to the PA in late May seeking assurance that Australian funding was not going to Palestinian criminals.
“I wrote to the Palestinian Authority on May 29 to seek clear assurance that Australian funding is not being used to assist Palestinians convicted of politically motivated violence,” Bishop said in a statement.
“I am confident that previous Australian funding to the PA through the World Bank has been used as intended.

By: World Israel News Staff 
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is seeking to form a new unity government in agreement with all Palestinian factions, including Hamas, according to Asharq Al-Awsat, an international Arabic-language newspaper based in London.
Palestinian sources told Asharq Al-Awsat that unity would foil purported attempts by the US, under the aegis of the Trump administration’s peace initiative, to drive a wedge between Hamas and the PA or separate the Gaza Strip from the Palestinian government based in Ramallah.

Hamas: No return of IDF soldiers’ bodies without release of hundreds of prisoners
Hamas communicated that it will reject any deal to return the remains of IDF soldiers, or two Israeli civilians in its custody, barring a wide-scale prisoner exchange, reported on Arab news outlet on Saturday.
By: TPS
Hamas will refuse any deal to return two Israeli civilians in its custody, as well as the remains of IDF soldiers Sgt. Oron Shaul and Lt. Hadar Goldin, unless it is part of a wide scale prisoner exchange, the London-based Al-Shark Al-Awsat reported on Saturday.
The Arabic language newspaper quoted sources within Hamas as saying that the humanitarian and political issues in Gaza must be separated, and that the organization refuses to combine solutions to the humanitarian crisis with what it calls ‘political solutions’, adding that the release of Israeli civilians and soldiers is conditioned on Israel releasing hundreds of security prisoners.

Israel’s ties with Morocco not official, but warming

Israel’s ties with Morocco not official, but warming(Shutterstock)
Though Israel has no official diplomatic ties with Morocco, its relations are warmer than with countries like Egypt or Jordan, which have signed peace treaties with the Jewish state. 
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Although Morocco and Israel are still officially enemies, you wouldn’t be able to tell today, reported Jackie Chugi on Army Radio Monday.
Many in Morocco object vociferously to any normalization with the Jewish state, but it is precisely the surprising extent of normalization between the two countries that sparked the objections in the first place.
“Not a month goes by without us hearing about Israeli sports competitors who  come to Morocco, about Israeli tourists, and even a senior security official who came to the Parliament,” said Chugi, translating an outburst by an angry Moroccan journalist.
The reporter noted some numbers that backed up the theory: 30,000 Israeli tourists visited Morocco in 2017, and Moroccan exports to Israel have gone from $5 million to $25 million in the past five years.
Researcher Einat Levy of Mitvim, the Israel Institute for Regional Foreign Policies, added, “There are many contacts, both open and secret, in almost every field you could think of.”
It helps that 800,000 Jews of Moroccan origin live in Israel – “making Israel essentially the second-largest Moroccan diaspora in the world,” she pointed out.
Rabat in fact has no problem letting tens of thousands in to boost its tourism industry. More publicly, however, Morocco – unlike its fellow Arab countries still in a formal state of war with Israel – allows Israelis to compete in international tournaments under their own flag. And if they win, they may even hear their national anthem. When Timna Nelson-Levy won gold in the Agadir Grand Prix for Judo a few months ago, Hatikva was played loud and clear as she ascended the podium to get her medal.

Australia stops direct aid to Palestinians, fearing it funds violence

Australia will discontinue direct aid to the Palestinian Authority because it suspects the money is freeing up funds used to support political violence.
By: World Israel News and AP
Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said Monday that Australia will stop giving about $7 million a year to the World Bank’s trust fund for Palestinian recovery and development, according to Australian media sources.
Australia said it has ended direct aid to the Palestinian Authority (PA) because Australian donations could increase the self-governing body’s capacity to pay Palestinians convicted of politically motivated violence.
The PA spends an estimated $300 million annually to pay stipends to Palestinians who committed acts of terror against Israelis and others as well as to families of these terrorists.
Bishop said Australia cut funding to the World Bank’s Multi-Donor Trust Fund for the Palestinian Recovery and Development Program after writing to the PA in late May seeking assurance that Australian funding was not going to Palestinian criminals.
“I wrote to the Palestinian Authority on May 29 to seek clear assurance that Australian funding is not being used to assist Palestinians convicted of politically motivated violence,” Bishop said in a statement.
“I am confident that previous Australian funding to the PA through the World Bank has been used as intended.

A Knesset event titled “Children Under Occupation” is stirring controversy. 
By: World Israel News Staff
A Knesset conference that will focus on the suffering of Palestinian children under Israeli “occupation” has sparked controversy.
“Zionist Union’s lost it,” Member of Knesset (MK) Yair Lapid, head of the Yesh Atid party, charged, referring to the political alliance that helped organize the event, Arutz 7 reported.
“They have joined BDS supporters and are giving a “gift to Israel’s enemies,” Lapid added
In response to the event, Knesset Chairman Yuli Edelstein will introduce a new requirement that organizers of conferences notify the Knesset in advance so that controversial issues liable to cause a disruption are blocked.
Edelstein also prevented the screening of a film that deals with the plight of children living under “occupation” since it was not approved in advance by the Knesset.
The controversial event, organized by MKs Michal Rozin of the leftwing Meretz party, Ayman Odeh and Dov Khenin of the Joint Arab List, and Ksenia Svetlova (Zionist Union), will feature organizations such as B’Tselem and Breaking the Silence.

By: World Israel News Staff
Hungary’s Jews are liberal-minded, view Israel as very important, see anti-Semitism as a problem and tend to be highly educated, according to a survey released last week in Budapest.
About half of the respondents encountered manifestations of anti-Semitism, a fifth said they suffered from verbal abuse and another fifth said they witnessed such abuse.
Only one percent personally experienced a physical attack, and another three percent were eyewitnesses to such an incident.
However, respondents considered the extent of anti-Semitism to be much greater than did the respondents of a survey conducted in 1999.
The survey, presented in book form, was titled, “Jews and Jewry in Hungary in 2017: Results of Sociological Research.”

Yazidis persecuted by ISIS in Iraq were in Israel to learn how to become medical clowns so they can help their war-ravaged brethren back home.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
A small group of Yazidis from Iraq recently visited Israel to receive training in medical clowning to help children in need of medical treatment or post-traumatic stress disorder in their home country, said Israel’s foreign ministry Sunday.
The five participants in the special training program left Israel at the end of last week with new tools and techniques that will enable them to get people who have managed to survive years of civil war and terrorist outrages in Iraq to smile, regardless of their ethnicity, religion, gender – or age.
The training was prepared by the Israeli “Dream Doctors Project,” which trains such clowns and works to promote medical clowning as an officially recognized paraprofessional medical profession recognized through proper academic training. Other partners that helped in this unique international venture were the British Road to Peace organization, the Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem and the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The Israeli military provided medical aid to six wounded Syrians, four of whom were reportedly newly-orphaned youth ranging from 6-years-old to 14. The refugees were brought into Israeli territory for immediate treatment at a local hospital on Friday night.
The army described the maneuver as a “unique and complex medical operation,” reported Times of Israel.
The six admitted refugees were injured during Syrian dictator Bashar Assad’s onslaught on southwestern Syria. While the Syrian civil war has dragged on for years, Assad has made major gains as of late with Russia’s assistance, regaining territory from rebel groups that oppose his brutal dictatorship.

By: World Israel News Staff
Two Palestinians were killed and eight others injured on Saturday night by an explosion that rocked a structure in Shejaiya, a neighborhood in Gaza City.
While the precise cause of the blast was not immediately announced, early suggestions indicate it was produced by explosive material that had been mishandled.
Local media reports referred to Saturday’s explosion as occurring at a house in the astern neighborhood of Shejaeya, while other reports identified the blast location as a fireworks workshop, according to AP.
The Hamas terrorist group that oversees the territory issued no immediate comment, and Israeli involvement is not being considered as a factor in the incident.
Fatal accidents such as this in the Gaza Strip are not uncommon, as Hamas relies on weapons manufacturing and storage facilities that are housed in civilian locations.

According to a report in the Israeli media on Thursday, two Arab nations and the Palestinian Authority (PA) appealed to Israeli officials to prevent Turkey from broadening its influence in Jerusalem’s Arab neighborhoods and Islamic sites.
Specifically, Jordan and Saudi Arabia reached out to Israel, asking the Jewish state to prevent recently reelected Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan from trying to exert Turkish control over Muslim sites in the Jewish state’s capital, reported Haaretz.
The alarm was sounded by Riyadh and Amman based on Turkish Islamic associations’ recent sponsorship of activities and in Jerusalem and its machinations related to Temple Mount protests, which included staging confrontations with Israeli guards at the site.

By: AP
Prince William toured sensitive Jerusalem holy sites on Thursday and paid a pilgrimage to the tomb of his great-grandmother on the final day of his historic royal visit to the Middle East.
The Duke of Cambridge’s Jerusalem leg is by far the most charged of his five-day tour of Jordan, Israel and the Palestinian territories — the first official visit of a member of the British royal family — as he ventures into the heart of world religion and regional politics.
The trip has been carefully orchestrated as a non-political event, and the prince has been watchful in his words and actions not to stoke controversy as he met with Israeli and Palestinian leaders and toured the region’s various locales. But the Jerusalem sites he visited are central to the century-old conflict and every step he took was closely scrutinized.
Prince William began his visit with a lookout of the Old City from the Mount of Olives in east Jerusalem. He then visited the nearby gravesite of his great-grandmother, Princess Alice, who saved Jews in the Holocaust and whose last wishes were to have her remains buried in the Church of St. Mary Magdalene above the Garden of Gethsemane.
He was then to visit a trio of key Muslim, Jewish and Christian sites before departing home to London. Prince William said he was particularly looking forward to his Old City visit that included stops at the contested holy site known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary, the Western Wall, the holiest place where Jews can pray, and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, where tradition holds that Jesus was crucified and buried.
Israeli politicians were angered his royal itinerary mentioned Jerusalem as being part of “the Occupied Palestinian Territories,” rather than Israel’s capital. Jerusalem Affairs Minister Zeev Elkin — who is running for mayor of the city in this year’s elections — called the reference a “distortion” that cannot “change reality.” His fellow hard-line Cabinet minister from the ruling Likud Party, Miri Regev, said it was “impolite” of the prince not to meet Jerusalem’s mayor in the city. Israel captured east Jerusalem from Jordan in the 1967 Mideast war and annexed it. Israel considers the city, home to holy sites sacred to Jews, Christians and Muslims and the emotional epicenter of the conflict, as an inseparable part of its capital. The Palestinians claim east Jerusalem as their future capital.
Britain has deep roots in the region, having governed Palestine from 1920 to 1948 under a League of Nations mandate. But it has since taken a back seat to the United States in matters of mediating war and peace efforts. The royal family has mostly steered clear of politics, and insisted the itinerary was merely reflecting the long-time, traditional vocabulary used by the British government.
The 36-year-old William, second in line to the throne, has already visited the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial and met Israelis from all walks of life, from the beaches and promenades of Tel Aviv to demonstrations of high-tech entrepreneurs to swanky receptions with celebrities and politicians. He also visited a Palestinian town, where he met youth and tasted the local cuisine.


Why Iranian Chants of ‘Death to Israel’ Became ‘Death to Palestine’
 June 28, 2018
Why Iranian Chants of ‘Death to Israel’ Became ‘Death to Palestine’Iranian protesters in Tehran. (Iranian Labor News Agency via AP)
The familiar regime-sanctioned slogans ‘Death to America and ‘Death to Israel’ have been replaced with the spontaneous slogans ‘Death to Palestine,’ ‘Help us, not Gaza’ and ‘Leave Syria alone and deal with Iran.’ What does this change signify?
By: Daniel Krygier
Thousands of Iranians have taken to the streets in Tehran protesting against the economic crisis in the country. Despite the infusion of billions of dollars into Iran’s economy because of the nuclear deal, living conditions for ordinary Iranians continue to deteriorate. Imports have become increasingly expensive after the Iranian currency lost almost 50 percent of its value in the last six months alone.
What impact will the deepening economic crisis in Iran have on Israel and the wider Middle East?
The familiar regime-sanctioned slogans “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” have been replaced with the spontaneous slogans “Death to Palestine,” “Help us, not Gaza” and “Leave Syria alone and deal with Iran.”
The stated goal of President Obama’s nuclear deal was to moderate the Iranian regime through economic incentives and bring Iran back to the family of nations. However, as the slogans indicate, instead of improving the livings conditions for the Iranian people, the ayatollah regime has channeled billions of dollars to finance its wars in Syria, Gaza, Yemen and Iraq.
The Iranian regime has also prioritized its different weapons programs over raising the dismal living standards for ordinary Iranians at home.

By: World Israel News Staff
Hamas terrorists launched a barrage of rockets and mortar fire from the Gaza Strip at Israeli communities in the south in the wee hours of Wednesday morning.
There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.
The attack was part of an ongoing, low-intensity military conflict initiated by Hamas.
An Israeli Air Force (IAF) aircraft and IDF tank late Tuesday night fired at a vehicle belonging to a Hamas field commander described by the Israeli military as “heavily involved” in launching arson kites and explosive balloons from the Gaza Strip into Israel.
Sources in Gaza reported that the car was empty and that no one was harmed in the strike. The car was completely destroyed.
Earlier in the evening, an IDF aircraft targeted a vehicle used by a group of Palestinians to launch arson balloons from the northern Gaza Strip into Israel.

US ramps up pressure on Iran, calls on allies to stop buying oil

The Trump administration called on its allies to stop buying oil from Iran in a bid to weaken the Islamic Republic.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
The United States confirmed Tuesday that the government has asked countries around the world to stop buying Iranian oil by November 4th as it ramps up economic pressure on the Islamic Republic.
In May, the Trump administration withdrew from the 2015 nuclear deal.
Asked if they were passing this message along to everyone, including China – a major importer of Iranian oil – an unnamed State Department official said, “Yes, we are asking them to go to zero,” noting that if they do not comply, their companies will be sanctioned by the United States.
The official added that a US delegation is going to the Middle East next week to urge the big oil-producing countries in the Gulf to take up the slack as Iran will be cut out of the market when the American sanctions are re-imposed.
November 4th will mark the end of the 180-day window for countries to wind down their economic relations with Iran since President Donald Trump left the “terrible” agreement that limited controls on Tehran’s nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of sanctions that had crippled the country.
Iran’s European allies, in an attempt to preserve the deal, have been urging the US administration to exempt certain companies from punishment if they continue doing business with Tehran. The American official said that officially the rule was “No, we’re not granting waivers,” although he “would be hesitant to say zero waivers ever.”
The Iranian economy has plunged since the US left the nuclear deal – even before the sanctions were put back into place. The currency is almost worthless (currently one USD costs 90,000 rials), and thousands of protestors have returned to the streets of Tehran over the last three days.
“Help us, not Gaza,” and “Leave Syria alone and deal with Iran” are some of the slogans the demonstrators have shouted, angry at the billions of dollars the regime spends on projecting its power in regional skirmishes and supporting terrorist organizations instead of helping its own citizens.



Knesset advances bill fighting Palestinian payments to terrorists

The Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee advanced its attempts to penalize the PA for incentivizing terror through stipends.  
By: World Israel News Staff
The Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee on Wednesday approved a bill which requires the government to deduct the amount the Palestinian Authority pays terrorists from the taxes and tariffs that Israel collects on behalf of the Palestinian Authority (PA).
The Knesset plenum is expected to vote on the bill and pass it into law on Monday.
According to a Defense Ministry report based on the PA’s budget, the PA paid terrorists over a billion shekels in 2017 and increased the amount to over NIS 1.4 billion in its 2018 budget.
The bill, which had already passed a vote at the Foreign Affair and Defense Committee, is based on a proposal submitted by Member of Knesset (MK) Elazar Stern (Yesh Atid) and other lawmakers, with the addition of certain clauses from a similar government-sponsored bill.
The legislation determines that at the end of each year, the defense minister will draft a report on the funds the PA pays terrorists. The financial penalty will be determined by the report.

Analysis: Why Netanyahu opposes a bill against Palestinian funding of terror

Analysis: Why Netanyahu opposes a bill against Palestinian funding of terrorPM Benjamin Netanyahu (Yonatan Sindel/Flash90)
The prime minister attempted to block a bill that would stop the transfer of funds to the Palestinian Authority as long as it pays stipends to terrorists and their families. Why?  
By: Mati Wagner, World Israel News
The reasoning behind a bill passed Wednesday by the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee is simple: Israel should stop facilitating Palestinian incentivization of terrorism.
According to figures provided by the committee, every year the Palestinian Authority (PA) pays NIS 1.2 billion ($300 million) to terrorists and their families.
Israel indirectly makes this possible by transferring to the PA tax revenues collected by Israeli customs authorities on Palestinian goods sold to Israelis.
Lawmakers from both the coalition and the opposition voted unanimously to send the bill to the Knesset for ratification. It is expected to be passed by a large majority when it comes up for a vote on Monday.
The US has already passed a similar law called the Taylor Force Act, which blocks most US aid to the PA as long as it maintains its policy of paying stipends to terrorists and their families.

Poland backtracks on controversial Holocaust Law, considers removing jail terms

Poland backtracks on controversial Holocaust Law, considers removing jail termsPolish PM Mateusz Morawiecki (Aris Oikonomou, Pool Photo via AP)
Warsaw appears to be caving in to pressure and backtracking on recent legislation that criminalized discussion of Polish collusion with Nazi Germany. 
By: AP and World Israel News Staf
Polish lawmakers are debating a new version of a Holocaust speech law that would remove criminal provisions for statements deemed harmful to Poland’s good name.
A version of the law passed earlier this year criminalized discussion of Polish collusion with Nazi Germany, calling for prison terms of up to three years for breaking the law.
It sparked a major diplomatic crisis with Israel, where many felt it was an attempt to whitewash Poland’s history of violence against Jews during World War II. The United States warned it threatened academic freedom and that it would harm Poland’s “strategic position.”
In February, a high-level Polish government delegation visiting Israel for emergency talks over the new legislation insisted that the new law itself was not a subject for negotiation.
On Wednesday, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki appeared to be backing down on the legislation after presenting a new draft bill to Parliament.
Morawiecki asked the lower house of parliament to remove the jail terms from the bill, Reuters reported.

As fighting escalates in southern Syria, with government forces penetrating rebel-held territories in Daraa province, up to 50,000 people have been displaced.
By: AP and World Israel News Staff
As fighting escalated in southern Syria, government forces on Tuesday pushed deeper into rebel-held territories in Daraa province in a week-long offensive that the United Nations estimates has displaced up to 50,000 people.
Jordan said its borders will remain closed for any new refugees, calling on the U.N. to provide security in southern Syria.
Jens Laerke, a spokesman for the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, said aid officials were “deeply concerned” for those fleeing the fighting and heading toward the sealed border with Jordan. He called on warring parties to “ensure the protection of these civilians, according to international law.”
Daraa’s residents described living in extreme fear and said many had also headed to territory bordering Israel near the Golan Heights, believing it to be safer.
Waseem Kiwan, a 36-year old civilian in the village of Tafas north of Daraa city said nothing has been spared in the intensive bombing campaign.
“The area is heading toward a catastrophe, a humanitarian catastrophe in every sense of the word,” he said. “People are living in extreme fear.”
“The safest place is the border with Israel because the regime and Russian airplanes cannot strike the area,” he said.

By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Nur A-Din Shinawi, the terrorist from Jenin who stabbed and seriously wounded a Jewish high school senior two weeks ago in Afula, had received a one-day work permit three months ago, in contrast to previous reports that he had managed to illegally infiltrate into the country.
Investigators believe he simply stayed on illegally in Israel until carrying out his attack, according to a report Tuesday on the Hakol Hayehudi website.
The District Coordination and Liaison office, which is in charge of giving out work permits to residents of the Palestinian Authority (PA), told the website that 20-year-old Nur A-Din Shinawi received a day permit back in March. After the attack, the office added, they froze all work permits for the terrorist’s first- and second-degree relatives.

Iran’s supreme leader urged the country’s judiciary Wednesday to take measures to secure people’s “businesses and lives” amid economic protests that have struck the capital, Tehran.
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said during a meeting with judiciary officials on Wednesday that authorities need to ensure an “atmosphere of security” and that the judiciary “must confront those who disrupt economic security.”
Khamenei’s remarks were his first reference to the three days of protests that have erupted in Tehran, including protesters confronting police outside parliament and officers firing tear gas at the demonstrators. The rallies even lead to the temporary closure of the city’s Grand Bazaar.

Arab nations will be ready to back Trump’s Israeli-Palestinian peace initiative with or without the cooperation of the Palestinian president. 

By: World Israel News Staff

Arab nations informed US President Donald Trump’s ‎Middle East envoys that they would back a US peace plan for Israel and the Palestinians regardless of whether Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas agrees to discuss it, according to a report by Israel Hayom. ‎

Senior officials in Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and ‎the United Arab Emirates met with White House ‎adviser Jared Kushner and US Special ‎Representative for International Negotiations Jason ‎Greenblatt in recent days and reportedly conveyed this message.

‎They also said they have become fed up with Abbas’ rejectionism.

Kushner expressed a willingness to bypass Abbas in an interview that appeared this week with Al-Quds, a Palestinian newspaper.

A top Egyptian official told Israel Hayom Sunday ‎that the moderate Arab nations’ position was ‎‎”unanimous” and that Cairo, Amman, Riyadh and Abu ‎Dhabi would not oppose an attempt by Washington to go ‎over Abbas’ head in this case.‎

William is slated to visit Jerusalem’s Old City on Thursday during the segment of the visit categorized by Kensington Palace as a visit to the “Palestinian Occupied Territories.”
In the letter authored Sunday, Smotrich wrote that he was “shocked” to learn that William will be visiting the Temple Mount and the Western Wall under the auspices of the PA.

By: World Israel News Staff
On Sunday, the IDF revealed evidence demonstrating that the Hamas terror group organizes and carries out kite-based arson attacks originating in the Gaza Strip, refuting claims that the terror activity represents the spontaneous demonstrations of young Gazans.
Arson terror using kites and balloons has been a common tactic since Hamas began its violent “March of Return” riots at the end of March. The low-tech tactic involves attaching burning receptacles or explosive devices to kites or balloons, which are launched into Israeli territory where they have destroyed thousands of acres of land and caused upwards of 5 million shekels of damage.
This video shows how Hamas terrorists prepare and launch arson and explosive device-laden kites and balloons, targeting Israeli territory from the Gaza Strip.

US President Donald Trump said in an interview with the TBN Christian network that evangelical Christians expressed their appreciation for his decision to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem more than Jews did.
Trump made the statement to Mike Huckabee on the talk show of the former Republican governor of Arkansas, who is also the father of Trump’s press secretary.
The interview took place at the White House on June 18.
“I tell you what, I get more calls of thank you from evangelicals, and I see it in the audiences and everything else, than I do from Jewish people,” Trump said. “And the Jewish people appreciate it, but the evangelicals appreciate it more than the Jews.”
Huckabee said in response: “It’s not a surprise though, Mr. President, because evangelicals are people of the book. And they believe you kept a promise, were fulfilling really a 3,000-year old commitment to recognize Jerusalem as the capital.”

A Palestinian terrorist’s attorney claimed her client’s sentence should be lightened because dying as a “shahid” [martyr] is the only way a depressed Muslim can commit suicide.
By: World Israel News Staff
Defense Attorney Lea Tsemel claimed before the Supreme Court on Monday that her client’s attempt to kill an IDF soldier should be excused because terrorism is the only way a depressed Muslim can commit suicide.
The story was first published by Hakol Hayehudi (The Jewish Voice), an Israeli news site.
In an appeal case heard by the court, Tsemel explained that Amar Jandav, a Palestinian from Salfit, a village near the Samarian town of Ariel, became depressed after the death of a close friend.
Jandav decided to commit suicide. However, being a devout Muslim, he could not do so, as Islam prohibits suicide. Dying as a “shahid,” or religious martyr, while carrying out a terrorist attack, on the other hand, was Jandav’s only option, Tsemel said.

The General Assembly (GA) of the leadership of the Presbyterian Church-USA (PCUSA) overwhelmingly approved resolutions that censured Israel, while voting down those deemed not critical enough. According to the Presbyterian Outlet news service, for example, IDF actions on the border with Gaza during the recent Palestinian riots were panned, with no mention of the Hamas instigators of the violence and its attempted infiltrations, firebombings and sabotage of the border fence.
The Church also approved a resolution calling on the real estate company RE/MAX to stop working in Judea and Samaria.

By: AP and World Israel News Staff

Britain’s Prince William on Monday toured the ruins of the Roman city of Jerash and met with children, including Syrian refugees, from a UN-run education program on the second day of a five-day Mideast tour that will also take him to Israel and the Palestinian-run territories.

The 36-year-old William was accompanied by Crown Prince Hussein, 23, with whom he watched England’s World Cup match against Panama at his host’s residence late on Sunday.

William, an avid soccer fan, arrived in Jordan on Sunday afternoon, when the England-Panama game was underway. Hussein recorded it for him, and the two watched it later Sunday on a huge TV screen at the crown prince’s residence. England thrashed Panama 6-1, advancing to the second round.

Before settling down to soccer, William spoke at a garden reception at the British Embassy, praising Britain’s historic ties with Jordan and the kingdom’s commitment to hosting Syrian and Palestinian refugees.

The ruins of Jerash are one of Jordan’s main tourist attractions. During the Roman era, it was once home to a small Jewish community.

William’s wife, the former Kate Middleton, visited the archaeological site as a child when her father worked for British Airways and the family lived in Jordan for close to three years in the 1980s. A Middleton family photo shows Kate in Jerash with her father and younger sister Pippa.

Gaza terrorists ignite fresh fires with bomb-laden kites and balloons

Gaza terrorists ignite fresh fires with bomb-laden kites and balloonsPalestinian terrorists launch a 'fire kite' towards Israel. (IDF)
Israel continued to suffer from the Palestinian arson terrorism emanating from Gaza.
By: World Israel News Staff
Israel’s south continued to contend with the Palestinian airborne arson terrorism on Sunday as firebomb-laden kites and balloons set new fires near communities on the border with Gaza.
Firefighters extinguished blazes near Kibbutz Kissufim, Be’eri and Nir Am.
In the morning, a balloon tied to a suspicious object landed in the yard of a home in the southern city of Sderot. The resident alerted the police, which dispatched a sapper to deal with the potential threat.
Sunday’s fires came a day after incendiary kites launched by Palestinian terrorists from Gaza started 26 blazes in southern Israel.
The IDF in recent days deployed a new detection system to combat the terrorism which has been plaguing the south for some three months, but with apparently limited success.
Israeli farmers in proximity to Gaza have been subjected to hundreds of burning kites. Some 500 blazes have destroyed several hundred acres of wood and farmland and have ruined produce worth millions of shekels.

If Labour is elected to lead Britain, it will recognize a Palestinian state “very early on,” said party head Jeremy Corbyn.
By: AP and World Israel News Staff
British opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn said Friday that a government under his leadership would recognize a Palestinian state “very early on.”
“I think there has to be a recognition of the rights of the Palestinian people to their own state which we, as a Labour Party, said we would recognize in government as a full state as part of the United Nations,” he said.
Such recognition would come “very early on” under a Labour government, he said.
Corbyn said the Trump administration’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and move the US Embassy there was a “catastrophic mistake.”
Corbyn spoke during his first international trip outside Europe since he was elected Labour Party leader in 2015.
On Friday, he toured Zaatari, Jordan’s largest camp for Syrian refugees. On Saturday, he visited the Al-Baqa’a camp for Palestinians who consider themselves refugees.
With his visit to Jordan, Corbyn appeared to be burnishing his foreign policy credentials.
Since Corbyn’s election as Labour leader, allegations of anti-Semitism in the party have grown

Israel is promoting a transportation plan to boost peace hopes and connect Israel and the Palestinians to their neighbors in the Middle East.
By: World Israel News Staff
A senior Israeli cabinet minister is pushing a plan to build a region-wide train network that he says could link Israel to much of the Arab world.
Yisrael Katz, Minister of Transportation and Intelligence, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are pushing forward with plans to extend an existing train line in Israel to the Jordanian border and into the Judea and Samaria region.
The projects would give Jordan and the Palestinians greater access to Israel’s Haifa port.
Katz has previously presented the plan, dubbed “Tracks for Regional Peace,” which includes a rail network stretching through Jordan and Saudi Arabia to the Gulf.
Israel does not have formal relations with Saudi Arabia, but Katz suggested the issue be quietly raised through back channels.

The BBC said Andrew Marr breached editorial guidelines by comparing Israel’s treatment of Palestinian children to the Assad regime’s chemical attack on civilians.
By: World Israel News Staff
The BBC has found Andrew Marr guilty of breaching editorial guidelines by claiming Israel had killed “lots of Palestinian kids,” the London Daily Mail reported Sunday.
The Corporation’s extraordinary ruling against one of its most senior personalities is almost unprecedented, the newspaper said.
During the April 8 edition, Marr concluded a discussion of the Syrian regime’s chemical weapons attack on civilians by saying: “And the Middle East is aflame again. I mean there’s lots of Palestinian kids being killed further south as well by Israeli forces.”
His comments were a reference to clashes between Israeli forces and Palestinians in Gaza.
Journalist and Jewish activist Jonathan Sacerdoti complained, writing: “When talking about a story on the use of chemical weapons in Syria, Andrew Marr for some reason decided to talk about Israel (which was unrelated anyway).

By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Hezbollah’s main accounts on social media sites Twitter and Facebook were unceremoniously shut down on Saturday.
The terrorist group immediately complained about the move on another media site, Telegram, claiming that it was done because of the “important role” these accounts play in the activities of their organization.
The shutdown took place a day after Hezbollah uploaded footage on its Twitter account that showed Hezbollah blowing up an IDF patrol in 2006 on the Lebanese border – the incident which sparked the Second Lebanon War.
Israel has asked Twitter and Facebook to remove Hezbollah’s accounts numerous times. In 2012, Facebook removed pages created by Hezbollah over its incitement to violence, and at the end of 2017 the company acquiesced again (but not Twitter).

After the Czech Republic, Bulgaria will be the second country to open an honorary consulate in Jerusalem. 
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced at his Sunday cabinet meeting that Bulgaria will open an honorary consulate in Jerusalem very soon.
Bulgaria’s Prime Minister Boyko Borisov decided on the step when he visited Israel earlier this month.
In doing so, Sofia will be following in the footsteps of Prague. The Czech Republic reopened its honorary consulate in Jerusalem at the end of May after a hiatus of 18 months caused by the death of its previous honorary consul, Israeli-Czech journalist Tatiana Hoffman.
However, unlike the Czechs, who according to their new consul see the move as focusing more on economic issues, the Bulgarian prime minister views this legation as having a broader mandate, the prime minister said.
Borisov, he noted, “took care to explain to me in our conversation that this consulate will not only deal with Bulgarian matters in Jerusalem, but with Bulgarian issues all over Israel.”

Obituary: Why we needed Charles Krauthammer

Obituary: Why we needed Charles KrauthammerCharles Krauthammer (Youtube/Screenshot)
Legendary Conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer passed away Thursday from cancer. “As a proud American and as a proud son of the Jewish people, you harnessed your formidable intellect to defend liberty and the Jewish state,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wrote in a letter expressing “deep sorrow.” Following is a tribute to the brilliant political analyst and supporter of the State of Israel.
By: Jonathan S. Tobin, editor-in-chief, JNS
Charles Krauthammer would have been an inspirational figure even if he hadn’t become a writer and television commentator. The Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist who died on June 21 at the age of 68 was laid low as a 22-year-old medical student when a pool accident left him a quadriplegic. Knowing that people would consider his ability to “just muddle through life” a “great achievement” because of what had happened, he resolved to carry on as if he had never been injured at all. Rather than accept that his disability would define his life, Krauthammer continued on with his medical studies at Harvard University and become a brilliant psychiatrist.

Top Palestinian negotiator accuses Trump team of trying to ‘bring down PA’

Top Palestinian negotiator accuses Trump team of trying to ‘bring down PA’Palestinian negotiator, Saeb Erekat, speaks during a news conference. (AP/
Amid ongoing meetings in Jerusalem between the US’ Mideast peace delegation and Israeli leaders, Saeb Erekat promoted the Palestinian boycott of the Trump administration, which he says seeks to undercut PA leadership.
By: World Israel News Staff
On Saturday, top Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat accused President Donald Trump’s peace team of plotting to topple the Palestinian Authority.
The accusations were launched amid a visit to Jerusalem by Trump senior adviser Jared Kushner and US envoy to the Middle East Jason Greenblatt, who met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday and were slated to meet with him again on Saturday night.
The Palestinians reportedly refused to meet with the US team as part of their boycott of the Trump administration following the president’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and the US’ subsequent move of its embassy to that location.
In response to a statement released by Kushner and Greenblatt referencing discussions with Netanyahu about humanitarian issues related to the Gaza Strip, which is ruled by the Hamas terror group, Erekat claimed, “The goal behind this is to sustain [Hamas’] coup and keep Gaza separated from [Palestinian-controlled areas of Judea and Samaria] . . . to creat[e] a mini-state in Gaza while bringing down the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank,” reported the official Palestinian media outlet WAFA.
“In order to target the leadership, the US administration starts by creating a state of destabilization and confusion in [Judea and Samaria] and at the same time works on undercutting international consensus on rejecting the so-called deal of the century and American conspiracies and support for the Palestinian cause,” said Erekat.
His reference to the “deal of the century” was an allusion to Trump’s as-yet unrevealed Mideast peace plan, which the Palestinians have repeatedly declared they will reject in no uncertain terms.

A Palestinian driver rammed his car into four IDF soldiers—among them three women and one man—lightly hurting them.
The driver initially fled the scene, driving into the nearby village of Husan in what the IDF suspected was a terror attack.
The driver later turned himself in, claiming the incident was an accident.
The soldiers were lightly wounded and received treatment from United Hatzalah first response unit at the scene before being transferred to a nearby hospital for additional treatment
Here is a video of the driver turning himself in:

Earlier in June, Israeli troops near Hebron stopped an attempted car-ramming attack in which a driver tried to use his vehicle to run over soldiers on a road leading to the Tomb of the Patriarchs. That driver was eliminated by IDF troops.
Car-ramming attacks are among the tactics used by Palestinian terrorists to target Israeli civilians and soldiers alike. While terrorists in Gaza have favored arson kites as of late, which have been used to infiltrate Israeli territory and damage thousands of acres of farmland and nature preserves, vehicular attacks remain a significant risk in Judea and Samaria.

Issuing a belated response to US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s list of demands for Iran, Tehran issued corresponding list with which it claims the US must comply.
By: AP and World Israel News Staff
Iran announced a list of 15 demands for improving relations with the United States, including a U.S. return to the 2015 nuclear accord, in response to a similar list of demands made by Washington last month.
In an article in a state-owned newspaper Thursday, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif called on the U.S. to stop providing arms to the “invaders of Yemen,” referring to Saudi Arabia, and to drop its opposition to the nuclear disarmament of Israel.
It was reported this week that The Trump administration signed a secret letter declining to pressure Israel to sign an international nuclear-nonproliferation treaty.
Zarif’s demands came in response to requirements laid out in May by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who called for a wholesale change in Iran’s military and regional policies, threatening the “strongest sanctions in history” if it refused. The U.S. withdrew from the landmark 2015 nuclear agreement with world powers earlier that month.

The “Offensive Drone” can target rock- and bomb-throwers with tear gas with pinpoint accuracy.
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
The Israeli army publicly revealed its newest tool for dealing with violent protestors Thursday – a drone that can drop tear gas from the sky.
It has already had its “baptism of fire” in recent weeks during violent clashes at the Gaza border fence – with great success, according to the IDF.
The drone can fly extremely quickly for a distance of half a kilometer, hover 100 meters over the exact location of a group of rioters and send down various means of riot-dispersal – mainly tear gas– without endangering soldiers’ lives.
Until now, they had to come within the range of the rock- or fire-bomb throwers in order to shoot gas canisters at them with specially equipped rifles.
The drone is safe, too, as “No rock can reach that high,” explains Major A., the liaison officer of the Benjamin Brigade. He was one of the project leaders who developed the device together with the Military Research and Development Administration over the past year.

On Friday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with Senior Advisor to President Donald Trump Jared Kushner and Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt in Jerusalem.
After visits to Jordan, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia, Greenblatt and Kushner were expected to provide details of the US-sponsored peace plan to the Israeli premiere, with an eye to jump-starting negotiations with the Palestinian Authority, which has maintained a boycott of the Trump administration since its recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and the US’ subsequent embassy move.
While PA President Mahmoud Abbas has repeatedly rejected the US’ role in the peace process since Trump’s Jerusalem declaration, King Abdullah II of Jordan met with Kushner and Greenblatt on Wednesday, declaring that the “US has an important role” in future talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

Survey: Discrimination high against Jews and other minorities in NYC

Survey: Discrimination high against Jews and other minorities in NYCAn interfaith group celebrates Chanuka. (AP/Mahmoud Illean, File)
Most of those harassed do not bother reporting the problem, which is a statistic the agency that commissioned the survey wants to change.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
An official New York City (NYC) agency came out on Tuesday with a dismaying report on the rate of discrimination suffered by minorities in the city, including Jews, yet said that the overwhelming number of victims do not report the crime when it happens.
The NYC Commission on Human Rights surveyed 3,105 Muslim, Arab, Jewish, South Asian and Sikh New Yorkers about their experiences of “bias harassment, discrimination, and acts of hate” between July 2016 and late 2017. The report highlights the fact that this was the period leading up to and following the 2016 presidential elections.
During this period, a particularly charged atmosphere prevailed in many places across the country due to the nature of the battle between the Republican and Democratic contenders for office and its aftermath.
Close to 1,000 of the survey respondents identified themselves as Jews. Unsurprisingly, those who were observant were more likely than their co-religionists to be verbally harassed (39.2% vs. 21%), but almost 40% of all minorities in this category reported such harassment.
The questions regarding physical assault were not broken down by religion, race or ethnicity.
In all, nine percent of respondents said they had been physically assaulted in this time period, while nearly one in five people who wear religious clothing said they have been shoved on a subway platform.
On the work front, while 16% of those surveyed said that they experienced racial, religious or ethnic discrimination in their place of work or while seeking a job, over half of the Orthodox and Hasidic respondents said this was the reason they were not hired. However, non-Orthodox Jews still reported significantly higher numbers (22.8%) than the general public in this area of discrimination.
In spite of these high numbers, seven out of ten respondents said they did not report the bias incident to any law enforcement agency or even a faith-based organization. The reasons they cited were the fear of retaliation or that their reports would not being taken seriously, with some claiming that previous reporting did not result in action.
As the government agency responsible for enforcing the city’s Human Rights Law, the Commission also recommended ways to encourage reporting as well as preventing bias incidents. These included working with various ethnic organizations, including Jewish ones, to educate people as to their rights. The agency also launched an ad campaign on social media and in 15 ethnic media outlets.
Jewish organizational figures were quick to praise the initiative.
“As a Jewish New Yorker who grew up in Brooklyn, I know firsthand that anti-Semitism, xenophobia and bias still unfortunately exist in our great city,” said Jonathan Greenspun, commissioner and board member of the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York.

The Strategic Affairs minister said Thursday that an extensive military operation in Gaza aimed at toppling Hamas could be launched.
By: World Israel News Staff   
Strategic Affairs Minister Gilad Erdan told Army Radio Thursday that a major military operation in Gaza in “the next few months” with the goal of toppling Hamas is a possibility.
Asked if Israel is on the verge of a full-scale military operation in Gaza, Erdan replied in the affirmative:
“Yes, there is a very good chance after what we have experienced in the last four weeks. We might have to, in order to return the peace and the deterrence. It would also be a move that shows Hamas has to be taken down. In the coming months we will have to enter into a major military operation in Gaza.”
“It’s not something we want, but we might have no choice,” he said.
There was a marked escalation this week in Gaza with terrorists firing dozens of rockets at Jewish communities in the south.

US President Donald Trump’s Mideast team, led by son-in-law Jared Kushner, is in the region this week visiting Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Israel in an attempt to advance an Israeli-Palestinian peace plan.
One visit that will not be made is with the Palestinian leadership, which has repeatedly attacked the Trump administration over its decision to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is reportedly under pressure from Arab leaders to cooperate with the Americans.
On Tuesday, the Kushner team met with Jordan’s King Abdullah II, and on Wednesday with Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, acknowledging the talks only after the fact. They are expected to visit Qatar, followed by Israel toward the end of the week.
Kushner and envoy Jason Greenblatt issued only vague statements regarding the meetings, saying they discussed the “humanitarian situation in Gaza” and US efforts to “facilitate peace between Israelis and Palestinians.” They did not release an itinerary.

On Wednesday, the EU committee adopted a resolution on the matter during a special session attended by the Goldin family, at which representatives of Romania, Hungary and the Netherlands demanded that all Gaza humanitarian assistance be conditioned on the return of captured Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers currently held by Hamas.

The resolution also called on European Union (EU) members to increase their pressure on Israel and impose sanctions to force it to stop its “aggression” against the Palestinians, according to the report.

By: AP and World Israel News Staff
The United States is leaving the United Nations’ Human Rights Council, which Ambassador Nikki Haley called “an organization that is not worthy of its name.”
Haley said Tuesday the US had given the human rights body “opportunity after opportunity” to make changes. She lambasted the council for “its chronic bias against Israel” and lamented the fact that its membership includes accused human rights abusers such as China, Cuba, Venezuela and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
“We take this step because our commitment does not allow us to remain a part of a hypocritical and self-serving organization that makes a mockery of human rights,” Haley said.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, appearing alongside Haley at the State Department, said there was no doubt that the council once had a “noble vision.”
“But today we need to be honest,” Pompeo said. “The Human Rights Council is a poor defender of human rights.”

“For years, the UNHRC has proven to be a biased, hostile, anti-Israel organization that has betrayed its mission of protecting human rights,” Netanyahu charged. “Instead of dealing with regimes that systematically violate human rights, the UNHRC obsessively focuses on Israel, the one genuine democracy in the Middle East.”

Turkey will receive on Thursday the first of 100 of the most advanced jet fighters in the world that it has bought from the US, a Pentagon spokesman said Tuesday.
The purchase was opposed by Israel and the US Congress.
“Although Turkey has long been a participant in the development of the F-35 program, the US Senate had sought to block Turkey from receiving the stealth warplanes through language in the National Defense Authorization Act amid a deterioration of the US-Turkey relationship,” CNN reported.
Israel, which has a strained relationship with Turkey despite officially being allies, has also reportedly expressed concerns about the sale of the fighter jets to Ankara.

Russia has been expelling foreign rabbis, claiming they compromise the country’s security.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Chief Rabbi of Siberia Asher Krichevsky is the latest in a series of rabbis who have faced expulsion by Russia for purportedly threatening the country’s stability.
Krichevsky was stripped of his residence permit after being charged with attempting to “destroy Russia’s constitutional order,” according to a synagogue official in the Siberian city of Omsk.
Speaking to AFP, the unnamed official added, “Neither the rabbi nor his lawyer was informed of the exact nature of the charge because the case was immediately classified as secret.”
This is not the first time that a foreign-born rabbi has been accused of threatening state security.
In January, the JTA reported that a 12-year veteran Chabad rabbi from New York was deported because the Russian intelligence agency said he was involved in “extremist behavior” – but the court would not make the specific charges public.

By: World Israel News Staff 
Strategic Affairs Minister Gilad Erdan detailed on Tuesday night links between terror organizations and groups involved in the global boycott movement against Israel.
Organizations like Hamas and the Palestinian Front for the Liberation of Palestine, recognized terrorist organizations, are affiliated with anti-Israel organizations advocating BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions).
He presented “The Hate Net: A Research Highlighting The Prominent Role of the PA and Hamas in Leading BDS and Certain BDS Organizations’ Ties to Terror Groups” at this year’s Global Coalition 4 Israel Forum (GC4I).
On his twitter account after the conference, Erdan wrote: “Today at the #GC4I2018 forum, I revealed the map of the Delegitimization Network- aka, the Hate Net. We’ve mapped out the 42 leading #BDS orgs, their hub in Ramallah & the connections between them. We’re exposing their anti-Semitism & ties to terrorist groups like #Hamas & PFLP.”

Israel has taken steps to open a criminal investigation against soccer chief Jibril Rajoub for threatening Messi.
By: World Israel News Staff
Israel is fighting back against the Palestinian official who led to Argentina’s cancellation of a friendly soccer game with Israel and is seeking to have him sanctioned on several levels.
Israeli Minister of Public Security and Strategic Affairs Gilad Erdan contacted Israel’s security and legal authorities, including the Attorney General, the Judge Advocate General and the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), and petitioned them to open a criminal investigation against Palestinian Football Association (PFA) chief Jibril Rajoub, Arutz 7 reported.
Rajoub had personally targeted Argentinean star Lionel Messi and called on him to boycott Israel.
Rajoub implored Messi not to “play a role in whitewashing the occupation,” adding that if Messi does play in Israel, Arab and Muslim sports fans should burn photos and t-shirts of the Barcelona superstar.

WATCH: What’s Holding the Arab World Back from Progress?
Why has the Arab and Muslim world stopped dead in its tracks, while Western countries make great strides of progress? Does it have anything to do with the way the Arab world approaches Jews and Israel?
So what’s holding the Arab world back?
Why, by nearly every measure, are Muslim nations so far behind the West economically, culturally and scientifically?

French media reported that a woman crying “Allahu akbar” — “God is great” in Arabic — hurt two people with a box cutter at a supermarket in southern France.
A man was struck in the chest during the late-morning attack in La Seyne-sur-Mer, outside the Mediterranean port of Toulon, but the wound is not life-threatening, prosecutor Bernard Marchal told AFP.
A woman working at a checkout counter was also wounded, though not as seriously. Both victims were taken to a hospital.
“It appears to be an isolated case by a person with known psychological problems,” Marchal said, “though that doesn’t exclude the possibility that she may have been radicalized.”

Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner and US ‎Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason ‎Greenblatt will visit Israel, Egypt and Jordan this week to discuss the ‎upcoming US peace plan for the region. ‎
Abbas has rejected the ‎US as a peace broker in the wake of ‎Trump’s Dec. 6 recognition of ‎Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, saying ‎the move proved the US was ‎‎”grossly biased” toward Israel.‎ He has also lashed out at US Ambassador David Friedman in an anti-Semitic rant.
Abbas has conditioned any meeting with US officials on ‎Washington rescinding its recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli ‎capital and canceling its embassy move there. ‎

Former Israeli minister charged with spying for Iran

Former Israeli minister charged with spying for IranFormer Energy Minister Gonen Segev at the Supreme Court in Jerusalem for the appeal on his prison sentence, August 18, 2006. (Flash90)
Gonen Segev, a former government minister and medical doctor who served time for smuggling drugs into Israel, is now charged with spying for Iran.

By: TPS

Former Minister of Energy and Infrastructure Gonen Segev was arrested last month by the Israel Security Agency and indicted on charges of aiding the enemy in time of war and espionage against the State of Israel, the Shin Bet (Israel’s Security Agency) revealed Monday.

Segev was extradited to Israel in May from Equatorial Guinea after the central African country refused to let him in due to his criminal past: The former pediatrician and member of the now defunct Tzomet Party during the 1990s, served a five-year prison sentence after being convicted in 2004 of attempting to smuggle thousands of ecstacy tablets into Israel.

Upon landing in Israel, Segev was arrested by the Shin Bet and Israel Police on suspicion that he had been in touch with Iranian intelligence agents.

The Shin Bet said its investigation revealed that Segev had been recruited by Iranian intelligence, which had contacted him via the Iranian embassy in Nigeria. In 2016, Segev filed a request to have his Israeli medical license reinstated in order to be able to return to Israel. His attorney, Yoram Pomerantz, told Army Radio at the time that Segev had been working as a doctor in Nigeria.

Segev reportedly even travelled to Iran to meet with his handlers and, according to the statement, met with them in safe houses and hotels at unspecified locations, where he received encryption equipment to communicate with the Iranian agents.

Segev gave his handlers information pertaining to Israel’s energy sector and security installations as well as diplomatic and security officials, the Shin Bet said.
According to the statement, Segev tried to fool Israelis with connections to fields of interest to the Iranians into meeting with intelligence agents whom he presented as businessmen. All further details pertaining to the case have been placed under gag order.

As Hamas escalates its attacks on Israel, one terrorist was killed and another injured while trying to destroy an underground wall. 
By: World Israel News Staff
Palestinian terrorists blew themselves up Monday while trying to forge a hole in an underground wall separating Israel from the Gaza Strip, the IDF said.
In a terror cell of five, one terrorist was killed and another seriously injured as they used a bomb to carve an opening in the underground barrier.
Israel is currently constructing an underground wall around the Gaza Strip to thwart attack tunnels dug into Israeli territory from the coastal enclave.
Israel has also started building an underwater barrier.
The IDF denied Palestinian reports that the terrorists were shot by Israeli troops.
The army would not immediately provide details on what was damaged during the incident, which occurred near the now-abandoned Karni Crossing in the northern Gaza Strip — a frequent site of riots and clashes between Palestinians and Israeli troops.

Britain condemns ‘anti-Israel bias’ at UN Human Rights Council

Britain condemns ‘anti-Israel bias’ at UN Human Rights CouncilUK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson addresses the UN Human Rights Council (Magali Girardin/Keystone via AP)
British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said the UNHRC’s dedicated agenda item on Israel was “disproportionate and damaging to the cause of peace.”
By: AP 
British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson on Monday urged the UN Human Rights Council to reform its treatment of Israel.
But while he joined the United States in demanding an end to what has been been described as the body’s bias against the Jewish state, he urged the US not to pull out of the UNHRC.
Addressing the opening of the 38th council session, British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson criticized the council’s controversial Agenda Item 7, a permanent fixture on the schedule exclusively devoted to discussing Israel’s purported rights abuses.
Speaking to the Human Rights Council, Johnson said that its dedicated agenda item on Israel was “disproportionate and damaging to the cause of peace.”
Johnson said: “But I stress that that does not mean that we in the UK are blind to the value of this council.”
Johnson said the council’s work on the Israel-Palestinian conflict could have value under the right conditions.
Diplomats have told The Associated Press that a US withdrawal from the 47-member council could come as early as Tuesday.
Washington, some European countries and Australia have sided with Israel in condemning Item 7 as prejudiced, noting that countries with worse rights records in recent years, like Syria, are spared such intense scrutiny.

For the first time in two weeks, Palestinian terror groups fired rockets at communities in southern Israel, triggering a strong Israeli response.   
By: World Israel News Staff
Palestinian terror groups operating in Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip fired three rockets at southern Israel early Monday morning, the army said, after Israeli aircraft hit a number of targets in the coastal enclave in response to numerous arson attacks by Palestinians the day before.
One of the rockets landed in Gaza, according to the IDF spokesman.
Red alert sirens were heard in the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council, the Ashkelon industrial zone, Kibbutz Yad Mordechai and Netiv Ha’asara.
Neither Israel nor Hamas reported injuries.
These were the first rockets to be fired at Israel in over two weeks, breaking an unofficial ceasefire that has largely held since a day-long flare-up in late May.
Before the Palestinian rocket attack, Israeli fighter jets carried out strikes on three military compounds and one weapons manufacturing plant belonging to the Hamas terror group, which rules the Strip, in northern Gaza, the Israel Defense Forces said.
In response to the rockets, IAF fighter jets struck nine military targets in two military compounds and in a munition manufacturing site belonging to the Hamas terror organization in the northern Gaza Strip.

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has circulated, but not yet published, his report that blames both sides for the conflict
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
A UN report is poised to criticize Israel for its conduct during the violent rioting by Gazans at the border fence, but it also places blame on Hamas, according to Israel’s Channel 10, which acquired a copy of the document.
The report, authored by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, censures Gaza’s Hamas government for its part in the deadly conflict. Hamas has “inflamed and encouraged a highly volatile situation that contributed to violent actions at the fence and risked a serious escalation,” said the report.
According to Channel 10, the report also hit Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas for his part in the humanitarian crisis in Gaza by withholding the salaries of government employees in the coastal enclave.
The report was mandated by the December 2016 Security Council Resolution 2334, which called on Israel to “immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem.”
Former US President Barack Obama, in his last days in office, instructed the US to abstain on the motion, allowing it to pass 14-0. Jerusalem vociferously criticized the move at the time, with Minister Yuval Steinitz saying that the US had “abandoned Israel, its only ally in the Middle East,” and that its behavior was not that of a friend.
Since President Donald Trump came into office, however, the US has been delaying the UN’s publication of an update on the situation in Israel and on its borders – until now. The document was given first to members of the Security Council, Channel 10 reported.

Shi’ite forces loyal to Assad were killed in an airstrike along the Syria-Iraq border as ISIS and Iran battle for control of the Tehran-Damascus road. 
By: AP and World Israel News Staff
Syrian state media reported Monday that an airstrike against pro-government forces in the far east of the country near the Iraqi border resulted in several dozen deaths.
According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), Hezbollah terrorists and other non-Syrians loyal to the Assad regime were targeted by warplanes. In all, about 40 were killed. The death toll was expected to rise because a number of individuals were injured critically.
SOHR said that it was unclear whether those killed were Lebanese Hezbollah or Iraqi Shi’ites – or both.
It added that hundreds of ISIS members were able to cross the Euphrates River from its east bank to the west, where ISIS is trying to close Iran’s most important strategic route: the Tehran-Beirut road.
The Syrian state TV report said the airstrike occurred around midnight in the village of al-Hari, to the southeast of the border town of Boukamal, and was carried out by the US-led coalition battling the Islamic State group.
But a coalition spokesman said it had not carried out any strikes in the area.
The report, quoting an unnamed military official, gave no breakdown of the casualties other than saying there “were several martyrs and others were wounded.”

Shuva Malka, the 18-year-old high school student who was critically wounded by a Palestinian terrorist in a stabbing attack in Afula last Monday, thanked Israel’s security forces and medical teams for saving her life while calling on the Jewish nation to pray for her.
“Thank you to the Master of the World who really did give us a huge miracle,” she said from her bed at HaEmek Medical Center in Afula on Sunday, Israel’s Ynet news reported.
“Every second in which I am alive and strong, thank God, is not to be taken for granted at all,” said Malka.
She was initially listed in critical condition, but her situation has recently improved.
Professor Doron Kopelman, director of the surgical team at HaEmek Medical Center, said the patient “is recovering from a very serious, dramatic stabbing, and there was a huge risk to her life. She will remain with us for a few more days, and I hope that she will be able to gradually return to normal life.”
The 20-year-old terrorist, Nur Shinawi of Jenin, was arrested shortly after the attack. The Nazareth Magistrate’s Court on Monday extended his remand by a week.

‘Fire kites’ from Gaza cause severe damage in IsraelA Palestinian in Gaza prepares to launch an incendiary kite into Israeli territory. (Abed Rahim Khatib/Flash90)
The scorching heat on Saturday exacerbated the fires caused by incendiary kites, launched by Gaza terrorists, that landed in Israel’s southern communities, causing severe damage but no casualties.
Palestinians in Gaza continued to throw incendiary kites at southern Israel on Saturday, launching fires in at least 15 locations – some close to peoples’ homes.
Temperatures were unusually high – 38 degrees Celsius – helping the fires to spread further. Hundreds of acres of farmland and nature reserves were destroyed.
No one was hurt, but crops were damaged

erusalem mufti: Trump seeks to ‘liquidate Palestinian cause’
 June 15, 2018
In a holiday sermon on Friday, the grand mufti of Jerusalem took aim at the US administration, leveling serious accusations in the run up to a regional visit by US envoys Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt.
By: World Israel News Staff
The grand mufti of Jerusalem, Sheikh Muhammad Hussein, took aim at US President Donald Trump in a fiery sermon on Friday, targeting the president’s peace plan in an address to around 90,000 worshipers at the Al-Aqsa Mosque on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount.
Hussein used the Eid al-Fitr holiday, which marks the end of the month-long Ramadan festival, to declare that Trump’s undisclosed plan is “unfair and aims to liquidate the Palestinian cause,” reported Times of Israel.
While Trump has characterized the agreement as the “ultimate deal,” the Palestinians have repeatedly denounced the plan sight unseen.
Next week, White House special adviser Jared Kushner and US Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt are slated to arrive in the region to discuss the plan’s rollout.
Its prospects look bleak, however, with the Palestinian Authority maintaining a moratorium on contact with Washington in an attempt to punish the US for moving its embassy in Israel to the capital, Jerusalem. Since that move’s announcement, the Palestinians have claimed the US is disqualified as a Mideast peace broker.

Did IDF overconfidence almost prevent discovery of Syrian nuclear program?
The initial refusal by the IDF’s upper echelon to listen to warnings from a parliamentary committee almost prevented the discovery of a Syrian nuclear plant, Israeli TV reported.
By: World Israel News Staff
Former IDF Chief of Staff Moshe Ya’alon, former IDF intelligence chief Aharon Farkash and other high-ranking military officers initially rejected warnings received from politicians in 2004 about a possible Syrian nuclear weapons program because they thought they knew better, a report indicates.
According to a report by Hadashot TV’s Amit Segal, a Knesset sub-committee warned the IDF of Syria’s nuclear ambitions two years before the Mossad found clear-cut evidence that a reactor was being built there with North Korean help.
However, the IDF initially belittled the politicians, claiming they were out of their element, the report claims.
Farkash said in response that he does not remember the incidents as presented by Hadashot TV. Ya’alon declined to comment.
In March, Israel officially confirmed it was responsible for a September 6, 2007 airstrike, dubbed Operation “Outside the Box,” that blew up the al-Kibar nuclear site near Deir Ezzor, ending a 10-and-a-half-year policy of silence about the operation.
According to officials, Israeli spies received definitive proof of the reactor’s existence in mid-2006, when it was well underway, in what was described as a major intelligence failure.

The UN General Assembly rejected a US proposal to condemn Hamas and accepted a Palestinian initiative to censure Israel for its actions defending its border with Gaza in recent months. 
By: World Israel News Staff
The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) Wednesday rejected a US motion against Hamas, but affirmed a Palestinian-led initiative against Israel that condemned the Jewish state for the actions it took to prevent thousands of Gazans from overrunning its border fence.
The UNGA also criticized Israel’s counter-terror and policing actions against Palestinians in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem.
The American amendment condemning Hamas was struck down, even though it had a slim majority, 62-58, and 42 abstentions.
UNGA President Miroslav Lajčák of Slovakia ruled that a two-thirds majority was needed for an amendment to be added to a draft resolution.

A nine-year plan to lease Israeli drones to the German army was approved by the Bundestag’s budgetary committee.
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) and the Israeli government won big in Berlin Wednesday when the German parliament’s budgetary committee approved its army’s plan to lease IAI’s newest Heron-TP surveillance drones for nine years – until a European drone is ready for the market.
According to the €1 billion (USD1.18 billion) deal for the unmanned aerial vehicles, or UAVs, the IAI and Defense Ministry will provide training, logistics and infrastructure as well as manage “all aspects of the project, including operational support and maintenance,” as noted by IAI in a statement.
About 100 German soldiers will be trained in the Herons’ use at the Tel Nof Air Force Base in Israel, which houses one of the IDF’s UAV squadrons. Some of them have already reportedly begun practicing with the medium-altitude, long-endurance aircraft.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said an agreement that would prevent conflict on the Israeli-Syrian border is being mulled. 
By: World Israel News Staff
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said Wednesday night that contacts among the Russians, the US and Israel are “ongoing” and that reaching a settlement along the Israeli-Syrian border is still possible.
In an interview with Iran’s Al Alam TV broadcast, Assad said the southwestern region, where Iranian-backed forces are near the border with Israel, is “not the international bazaar” and that the relationship between Syria and Iran “will not be part of any settlement.”
Assad said that after regime forces captured Ghouta in southern Syria from rebels in April, “it was suggested that we should move south.”
“We were faced with two options,” he continued, “reconciliation or liberation by force. At this point, the Russians suggested the possibility of giving reconciliation an opportunity.”
“Up till now, there are no concrete results for a simple reason, which is Israeli and American interference, as they put pressure on the terrorists in that area in order to prevent reaching any compromise or peaceful resolution,” he said.

While Erdogan has become one of the most vocal detractors of Israel in the Muslim world, his main contender claims the Turkish leader is too soft on the Jewish state.  
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
The only realistic candidate to replace Turkish President Recep Erdoğan in the forthcoming elections is running on a campaign that tries to paint him as an Israeli collaborator.
Presidential contender Muharrem İnce accused Erdoğan of signing a “secret deal with Israel” and “deceiving the public” about his true stance regarding the Jewish state during an election rally in the city of Ordu Wednesday, Turkey’s Hurriyet reported.
According to a Bloomberg poll, Ince, head of the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP), has only 30% of the public behind him, compared to 50.8% for the incumbent, ahead of the upcoming June 24 election.

Waheba Issa Dais, 45, an Arab-Israeli native of Jerusalem now residing in Cudahy, Wisconsin, was arrested by the FBI and charged with attempting to provide material support to ISIS by recruiting and helping others to carry out attacks, authorities said in a statement Wednesday.
According to the criminal complaint, since at least January, Dais has attempted to aid ISIS by promoting its agenda, facilitating recruitment and maintaining a virtual library of instructions on how to make bombs, biological weapons, poisons and suicide vests to assist self-proclaimed members and supporters in planning terror attacks. The FBI Milwaukee Division’s Joint Terrorism Task Force, which investigated the case, revealed that Dais used multiple social media accounts that she had hacked and taken over from unwitting victims and private social media platforms.

Security minister criticizes IDF policy not to open fire on terror kite fliersSecurity Minister Gilad Erdan (Yonatan Sindel/Flash90)
The Internal Security Minister said that the IDF should order soldiers to shoot terrorists who fire rockets and those who fly incendiary kites into Israel.
By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan criticized the IDF Tuesday, saying they should allow soldiers to open fire on Palestinians who fly kites booby-trapped with fire bombs.
Hundreds of these incendiary kites have been flown into Israel from the Gaza Strip over the past few weeks that have burned down hundreds of acres of crops and forests.
In an interview on Israel Radio, Erdan noted that “it took the IDF a long time to realize that these kites are far from being a game, and even the burning of fields, which is extremely serious on its own, is enough justification to shoot in order to prevent the sending of the kites, let alone now that we know the kites are being equipped with explosives.”

By: World Israel News Staff
Responding to an initiative in the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) slated for Wednesday to lambaste Israel for Palestinian deaths in Gaza, the Trump administration is calling for a counter-measure in which the 193-nation body would separately denounce Hamas.
The Arab-backed text is “fundamentally imbalanced” and “ignores basic truths about the situation in Gaza,” US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley wrote in a letter sent to her fellow UN envoys on Tuesday.

Israel foils over 200 terror attacks by monitoring Facebook, Twitter

Israel foils over 200 terror attacks by monitoring Facebook, TwitterPublic Security Minister Gilad Erdan (AP)
By patrolling social media, Israel’s law enforcers and security personnel have managed to catch Palestinian terrorists before they could carry out attacks.
By: AP and World Israel News
Israeli authorities have foiled over 200 Palestinian attacks by monitoring social media and sifting through vast amounts of data to identify prospective assailants ahead of time, Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan said in an interview Tuesday.
These pre-emptive actions put Israel at the forefront of an increasingly popular — and controversial — trend used by intelligence and law enforcement agencies around the world that use big data technology to track would-be criminals.
While the technology appears to be effective, its tactics drew angry Palestinian condemnation and have raised questions about civil liberties.
Erdan, who oversees the national police force, said Israel’s technology, including the use of algorithms, has been an important factor in lowering the number of knife and shooting attacks in Israel in recent years. His plan includes sharing Israel’s knowledge with counterparts at an international security conference he is hosting that began Tuesday.
“The experience we now have, we can help other countries deal with this kind of terrorism,” he said, adding that working with allies “can lead us to a much better result in fighting lone wolf terrorists.”
Palestinians protest ‘violation’ of ‘privacy’
Hanan Ashrawi, a senior Palestinian Authority official, criticized Israel’s use of social media to prove peoples’ guilt before a terrorist act is committed, calling it a “violation of privacy.”

As Iran’s mullahs failed to generate large crowds on Quds Day — an annual day of protest against Israel — tens of thousands expressed support for the Jewish state on Twitter.
By: World Israel News Staff
As lower-than-expected crowds took to the streets of Iran on Friday to mark the regime-led Quds Day — an annual day of protest against Israel — some Iranians launched a Twitter campaign to express support for the Jewish state.
Radio Zamaneh, an Amsterdam-based Persian-language station, posted a number of clips showing the low turnout of people attending Quds (Jerusalem) Day demonstrations in Tehran Friday, demonstrating an unprecedented lack of interest in a government-sponsored rally.
