Israel’s defense budget set for massive increase
 August 16, 2018
Israel’s defense budget set for massive increasePM Benjamin Netanyahu speaks with newly recruited IDF soldiers at the Tel HaShomer army base, July 26, 2018. (Miriam Alster/Flash90)
Netanyahu presented a document to the security cabinet that details a significant increase in military spending. 
By: TPS 
Israel’s defense budget will be gradually increased to 6% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) over the coming years, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Wednesday as he presented a document labeled “Israel’s Security Outlook 2030” to the security cabinet.
The increase in the defense budget will total sum 0.2% to 0.3% of GDP, translating at some NIS 2-4 billion per year. Netanyahu said the defense budget will be re-examined once Israel’s GDP hits $500 billion. Israel’s GDP currently stands at some $350 billion.
The move marks a dramatic reversal in policy following decades in which the defense budget as a percentage of GDP has been in decline. In 2008 Israel spent 6.5% of GDP on defense and in 1992 the figure stood at some 15%.
The increased budget will go to the IDF, Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet), Mossad and other security agencies and will go, inter alia, toward strengthening Israel’s offensive capabilities, upgrading missile defense systems, completing security barriers, the home front and cyber capabilities.

Report: Head of Egyptian intelligence visited Tel Aviv to negotiate Gaza agreement

Report: Head of Egyptian intelligence visited Tel Aviv to negotiate Gaza agreementEgyptian head of Intelligence Abbas Kamel. (Khaled Elfiqi/Pool photo via AP)
A source in the Arabic media claims that the Head of Egyptian intelligence visited Israel on Wednesday to negotiate the Gaza ceasefire and promote a lasting solution to problems posed by the Hamas-run territory.
By: World Israel News Staff
A report in the Arabic daily newspaper Al-Hayat claimed that Egyptian Major General Abbas Kamel was in Tel Aviv on Wednesday, reportedly to discuss finalizing a truce agreement to head off further violent rioting, arson attacks and rocket strikes orchestrated by the Hamas terror group, which rules the Gaza Strip.
The Egyptian intelligence chief is attempting to broker an agreement that would also provide civilian infrastructure to Gaza, and lead to an prisoner exchange, according to Al-Hayat.
Hamas currently holds several Israeli civilians captive, in addition to the remains of two Israeli soldiers, Oron Shaul and Hadar Goldin, all of whom the terror group has refused to release.
While the current calm has been portrayed by Hamas as a “ceasefire” facilitated by Egypt and the United Nations, Israel has denied any agreement has been reached, maintaining instead that the Jewish state is “meeting calm with calm.”

Israeli security forces arrested a Palestinian from southern Lebanon who immigrated to Belgium as he tried to enter Israeli territory in July, with an indictment expected on Thursday.
By: World Israel News Staff
Israeli officials announced on Thursday that an indictment of Mustafa Khaled Awad, a 36-year-old terror suspect, would be filed Thursday morning.
Awad, a Palestinian from southern Lebanon, was arrested in July when tried to enter Israel via the Allenby Crossing from Jordan, the Shin Bet security service announced Wednesday.
While Awad resided in Belgium, he is suspected of belonging to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), one of the Palestinian terror organizations that advocates attacking the State of Israel instead of a negotiated peace settlement.
PFLP members have perpetrated dozens of terror attacks against Israelis throughout the world, including murdering Israeli tourism minister Rechavam Ze’evi in ​​2001.
Awad is accused of being active in the PFLP since 2010, training in Lebanon with Hezbollah and facilitating a terror funding network running from the PFLP in Syria and Lebanon to operatives in Europe.

Report: BDS claims it forced Israeli-operated ship from Tunisian port

Report: BDS claims it forced Israeli-operated ship from Tunisian portZIM vessel (shutterstock)
BDS activists took credit for the fact that a Tunisian port turned away a ship allegedly operated by the Israeli company ZIM, which denied it had leased the vessel in question.
By: World Israel News Staff
Last week, an Israeli ship on its way to Spain was denied permission to dock at the Rades Port in Tunisia, according to a report by the Jerusalem Post.
At the port’s entrance, the ship discovered that anti-Israel boycott operatives had threatened to block the port. Port workers also reportedly refuses to process the ship’s cargo, leaving the crew to reroute the vessel to its ultimate destination, Spain.
The events were allegedly set into motion based on the activities of Palestinian trade unions, a local Tunisian union and international boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) operatives.
While BDS activists claimed a victory by turning the vessel away, a ZIM spokesman told the Jerusalem Post that the ship did not belong to it, nor was it rented by the company or carrying any cargo belonging to the company.

Report: Israel acknowledges quiet on Gaza front; no long-term deal without captives’ return

Report: Israel acknowledges quiet on Gaza front; no long-term deal without captives’ returnLate IDF soldiers Hadar Goldin (L) and Oron Shaul, whose bodies are held by Hamas. (Social media)
A report in the Israeli media indicates that notwithstanding the relative calm along the Gaza Border, Israel has not yet struck a potentially enduring agreement with the Hamas terror group.
By: World Israel News Staff
While Israel’s border with the Gaza Strip is the most quiet it has been in weeks, a senior Israeli official quoted by Times of Israel indicated that any potentially longstanding deal with the Hamas terror group would require the return of Israeli captives and the remains of IDF soldiers.
The current truce is reportedly the handiwork of representatives of Egypt and the United Nations, who have served as go-betweens for Israel and Hamas.
In addition to the violent protests along the border orchestrated by Hamas, and the accompanying airborne arson attacks, the terror group also recently launched several lager-scale rocket attacks on Israel, striking residential areas and injuring Israelis. One recent attack resulted in Hamas rockets reaching the Israeli city of Beersheba, a first since 2014’s Operation Protective Edge.
The current calm appeared to involve Israel agreeing to reopen the Kerem Shalom crossing into Gaza on Wednsday, which is one of the primary points of entry for goods entering the coastal enclave, in exchange for Hamas agreeing to ramp down arson attacks and cease rocket fire.
A senior Israeli official quoted by Times of Israel cautioned, however, that there would be “no real arrangement without the return of our sons and citizens, and a commitment for a long-term calm.

Hezbollah’s Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah said that the terror group he leads “is more powerful than the Israeli army” and that both the US and the Zionist entity are “too weak to stage wars like those launched before.”
Speaking from his bunker via video link during a ceremony held at the Ashura Square in Beirut on Tuesday, marking the 12th anniversary of the Second Lebanon War in 2006, Nasrallah claimed that Hezbollah is “stronger than at any time since it was launched.”
Nasrallah congratulated the crowd celebrating what he termed as the “historic victory” in 2006.
“We insist on marking the occasion on August 14 in order to consolidate this victory in our culture and memory and to give hope in face of desperation which prevails (among our nation),” he stated.

During the entire Hebrew month of Elul, which leads up to the Jewish New Year, sephardic Jews observe the custom of reciting special penitential prayers very early in the morning. On Tuesday, congregants of the Ohel Moshe synagogue in Petach Tikva arrived before dawn and discovered a disturbing sight: a large swastika and lightning symbol of the German SS units sprayed on the façade of the building in black paint.
“Of course, a complaint was immediately filed with the police, with the hope that it would be dealt with seriously and expeditiously,” said Rami Greenberg, a city council member who exposed the criminal act on his Facebook page.

Liberman: Next Gaza war is a matter of timeMinister of Defense Avigdor Liberman Minister (C) and IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot (R) (Ariel Hermoni/Ministry of Defense )
“I am sure we will do what needs to be done … how it should be done,” Liberman said of the situation in Gaza.
By: World Israel News Staff
Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman visited the Gaza Division on Monday and held an assessment meeting with IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eizenkot, GOC Southern Command Herzi Halevi and other senior IDF officials, during which he stated that “the question regarding the next round of fighting is not a question of ‘if’ but of ‘when.'”
“I am sure we will do what needs to be done and how it should be done,” he added. “We are conducting a responsible and powerful security policy. We are prepared and know what to do and how to do it.”
Israel and Hamas have come close to serious conflict in recent weeks after four months of Hamas-led violence along Israel’s border with Gaza.
Israel last week saw two days of the heaviest exchange of Palestinian rocket fire and reprisal Israeli airstrikes since Operation Protective Edge in 2014.
Gaza terrorists fired some 200 rockets at Israel and the Israeli military carried out some 160 airstrikes on Gaza in this latest round of violence.

By: World Israel News Staff 
The IDF on Monday notified the family of Palestinian terrorist Mohammed Yousef, who killed  an Israeli father of two, that their house was to be destroyed.
The IDF attached an order of demolition to the house. Yousef stabbed to death Yotam Ovadia, a resident of Adam, a Jewish community in the Binyamin region.
The military entered the household of the Yousefs and prepared it for demolition.
The IDF notified the family early Monday morning.
The Yousef family will have an opportunity now to appeal the IDF demolition, although the likelihood of overturning the decision is slim. The High Court of Justice does not normally get involved in these instances.
On July 26, Yousef, 17, from the Palestinian village of Kobar entered Adam and attacked two residents outside a park, before a third resident shot him dead.

PA paid nearly $300,000 to Sbarro massacre terrorists and their families

Palestinian Authority has made payments totaling close to $300,000 to terrorists involved in the planning and execution of a horrific terrorist attack and their families.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
The Palestinian Authority (PA) has already paid almost $300,000 to those involved in the Sbarro attack in Jerusalem 17 years ago, reported Palestine Media Watch (PMW) in a statement marking the August 9 anniversary of the mass murder.
The family of Izz al-Din Al-Masri, who strapped on the shrapnel-filled vest and blew himself up in the crowded pizzeria, has so far gotten $50,124 after he killed 15 people, including seven children, and injured 130 others.
The bomber’s driver and attack planner, Ahlam Tamimi, was rewarded with monthly payments totaling $52,681 for the 10 years she sat in Israeli prison after conviction. She was released in 2011 as part of the deal to free Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, even though she had received 16 life sentences for the attack. She currently lives in Jordan, works as a TV presenter, and has remained unrepentant over her role.
In March 2017, the US Department of Justice requested her extradition after putting her on its Most Wanted Terrorists list, but Jordan refused to send her to be re-tried in an American court. Of those killed in Sbarro, one was a pregnant American, Shoshana Judy Greenbaum. The most severely injured person was also American, Chana Nachenberg, who remains in a vegetative state to this day.
The bomb-maker, Abdallah Barghouti, has “earned” the most by far – at least $191,526, says PMW, which monitors and analyzes the PA through its media and schoolbooks.
Barghouti received 67 life sentences for all of the explosive devices he built that ultimately killed 67 people and is still imprisoned.
PA law mandates that those who are imprisoned for injuring or murdering Israelis get a monthly allowance determined by a sliding scale that increases payments based on the amount of death and mayhem the terrorist causes.
The law also provides payments to families of “martyrs” who died while killing or trying to kill Israelis.
In July, the Knesset passed the “pay for slay” law, which mandates that the amount of money the PA pays terrorists and their families be deducted from tax revenues that Israel transfers to the Authority each month in an attempt to disincentivize terrorism.
The Israeli law was passed on the heels of the US’ Taylor Force Act, which the US Congress passed in March to cut American aid to the PA until it stops paying terrorists and their families.
The law was named for Taylor Force, an American tourist and army veteran who was stabbed and murdered by a Palestinian terrorist in the port of Jaffa in 2016. The attacker was shot dead by police.

New low in Israeli-Palestinian support for 2 states

New low in Israeli-Palestinian support for 2 states(Shutterstock)
Support for a two-state solution among Israelis and Palestinians is at an all-time low.
By: AP
A new poll says support for a two-state solution among Israeli Jews and Palestinians is at a two-decade low.
The joint poll conducted by Tel Aviv University and the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research determined that just 43 percent of Israelis and Palestinians support a vision of peace that would create a Palestinian state alongside Israel.
The survey, released Monday, says the reasons for this are doubts over the possibility of implementing a two-state solution and a lack of trust in the other side. It says support for the concept began to decline a decade ago.
The poll, conducted in June and July, interviewed 2,150 Palestinians and 1,600 Israelis. Its margin of error was 2.5 percentage points for Palestinians and 3 percentage points for Israelis.

Despite the recent violence at the Gaza border, the rocket attacks last week and ongoing kite arson, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has not changed his mind about the need for the United States to continue funding  the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) that supplies hundreds of thousands of Gazans with aid, according to a report Monday in the Israel Hayom daily.
Sources told the paper that Israel clarified its position with the Americans due to the Trump administration’s re-evaluation of  UNRWA’s role over the past several months.

Netanyahu posted footage on Twitter of protesters waving Palestinian flags, commenting, “No better testament to the necessity of the Nation-State law.”
By: World Israel News Staff
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and several Israeli ministers denounced the Arab-Israeli protest against the recently passed nation-state law at Rabin Square in Tel Aviv on Saturday night, during which protestors flew Palestinian flags and chanted slogans advocating a Palestinian state that would replace Israel.
“Last night, we received cogent testimony of the opposition to the existence of the State of Israel and the urgency of the nation-state law,” Netanyahu stated at the beginning of the weekly cabinet meeting on Sunday.
“Yesterday we saw PLO flags in the heart of Tel Aviv. We heard the calls: ‘With blood and fire we will redeem Palestine.’ Many of the demonstrators want to abrogate the Law of Return, cancel the national anthem, fold up our flag and cancel Israel as the national state of the Jewish people and turn it – as their spokespersons said – into an Israeli-Palestinian state, and others say: a state of all its citizens.”
Netanyahu continued, “It is for precisely this [reason] that we passed the nation-state law. We are proud of our state, our flag and our national anthem. Israel is a Jewish and democratic state. The individual rights of its citizens are anchored very well in the basic laws and other laws. Now it is clearer than ever that the nation-state law is also necessary.”
“The law is necessary in order to ensure the future of the State of Israel as the national state of the Jewish people. We passed this law and we will uphold it,” he concluded.

Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz said that if necessary, the cabinet would consider destroying Hamas.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Minister of Energy Yuval Steinitz said Sunday on a Kan Radio news program that if necessary, the Israeli government would consider ending the terrorist regime of Hamas and reconquering the Gaza Strip, but that at this time it was not required.
Steinitz, a member of Israel’s security cabinet, was unequivocal about who came out ahead when asked about last week’s rocket barrage by Hamas on southern Israel and the IDF’s counterstrikes.
“It’s very clear,” he said, “you just have to look at the proportions. Over the last couple of months we had one killed and a few injured. In Gaza – 200 killed and nearly 7,000 injured. And I’m not even talking about the hard blow we landed on what was left of Hamas’ attempt to build its strength up again.”
He was referring both to the attack tunnels that Israel has neutralized over the last several months, and to the targets hit most recently by Israel’s air force.

Tens of thousands of Arab-Israelis, some of whom flew Palestinian flags, met in Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square to protest the passage of the nation-state law. 
By: AP
Members of Israel’s Arab minority led a mass protest in central Tel Aviv on Saturday night against a contentious new law that critics say marginalizes the state’s non-Jewish citizens.
The rally marked further fallout from the explosive nation-state law and came a week after thousands of Druze, also members of the Arab minority, packed the same city square last week.
Israel’s 1948 declaration of independence called for opening Israel to Jewish immigration while protecting the rights of all inhabitants.  The government says the recently passed bill merely enshrines the country’s existing character. But critics say it undercuts Israel’s democratic values and sidelines the country’s non-Jewish population, namely the Arab community that makes up 20 percent of the country.
One clause downgrades the Arabic language from official to “special” standing.
Israeli media reported tens of thousands of Jews and Arabs attended the protest. Some Arab protesters waved Palestinian flags and others held signs reading “equality.” Some knelt and performed Muslim prayers.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu posted footage on Twitter of protesters waving the Palestinian flags. “No better testament to the necessity of the nation-state law,” he wrote.
Ayman Odeh, an Arab member of the Israeli parliament, told The Associated Press: “This is the first time that tens of thousands of Arabs have come to Tel Aviv with Jewish democratic groups. They came to say this is not the end of the demonstrations, but the first serious demonstration against the Nation State law.”

By: AP and World Israel News Staff
A federal grand jury has indicted a former Chicago man for trying to join the Islamic State (IS) group.
Justice Department officials announced Friday that 21-year-old Faress Muhammad Shraiteh, a US citizen whom American officials claim is in Israel, is charged with one count each of conspiring to and attempting to provide material support and resources to IS.
Each count is punishable by up to 15 years in prison.
The indictment alleges Shraiteh and two others conspired to join IS and traveled in May 2015 from Chicago to Egypt before flying to Istanbul, Turkey.
Shraiteh was denied entry there, while the two others were allowed in. The charges allege Shraiteh went to Israel, where he has family, and later told one of the other two that he planned join them in IS.
The indictment alleges that on May 28, 2015, Shraiteh “communicated with Individual B his plan to attempt to renew his passport in Israel” and rejoin them. Individual B, however, “was killed while conducting a suicide attack on behalf of ISIS,” according to the indictment, reported the Chicago Tribune.

By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed Hamas’ recent attacks during the weekly Cabinet meeting on Sunday, saying the government demands no less than a complete cessation of all fire from the Gaza Strip, reported Kan Israel News.
Echoing his close Likud ally, Minister of Energy Yuval Steinitz, who spoke about Hamas and deterrence earlier in the morning on the radio, Netanyahu stated, “I won’t reveal here any military plans, but they’re ready. Our goal is to return quiet to the residents of the south and the  Gaza belt, and it will be fully achieved.”
He seemed to dismiss the prospect of a broad operation in Gaza, which has been demanded by some right-wing politicians and certain residents of the south who have faced Hamas’ barrage of rocket attacks.

The Israel Group, a non-profit that fights BDS, is demanding that the Los Angeles Unified School District, the second-largest in the US, cease holding workshops promoting BDS and discrimination against the Jewish state.
By: Atara Beck, World Israel News
In 2017, the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) co-sponsored two full-day continuing education workshops, on October 19 and 21, for Kindergarten-Grade 12 teachers, titled “Learning About Islam and the Arab World.”
LAUSD is the second-largest school public school system in the US and the largest in the state of California, enrolling more than 640,000 students at over 900 schools and 187 public charter schools.
Ahead of the event, The Israel Group (TIG), described on its website as “a nonprofit that protects Israel in the diaspora by identifying, developing, and launching initiatives to cripple the boycott (BDS) movement against Israel,” protested to LAUDS that it had recruited “an anti-Israel, pro-BDS, pro-Palestinian organization – The Fellowship of Reconciliation (FORUSA)” for a professional development initiative.
One workshop session, for example, was titled “The Creation of Palestinian Refugees and Ethnic Cleansing.”

By: World Israel News Staff
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to meet with Poland’s Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) next month, the first such meeting between Netanyahu and a senior Polish official since the outbreak of a diplomatic crisis between the two countries following Poland’s controversial Holocaust law.
Israel Radio reported Sunday that Czaputowicz was scheduled to arrive in Israel and meet with Netanyahu, but sources in Warsaw said that he had been asked by Israeli officials to postpone the visit. According to the report, Warsaw claimed that they were asked to delay the visit due to the security situation in Israel and that it was not related to the contentious law.
In June, Warsaw gave final approval to the law  that forbids holding Poland responsible for crimes committed during World War II.
Critics in Israel and throughout the Jewish diaspora slammed the law for minimizing the complicity of Polish actors in Nazi war crimes and for whitewashing history, including the fact that many of the Nazis’ genocidal facilities were located in Poland.

By: JNS.org and World Israel News Staff
“Approximately 9,000 rioters are gathered along the security fence between Gaza and Israel. They are burning tires and hurling rocks, explosive devices, and firebombs at IDF troops and the security fence,” the IDF Spokesperson Unit announced in a statement on Friday.
The IDF also said that terrorists tried to infiltrate Israel, but the suspects returned to Gaza after the infiltration attempt. Gaza terrorists also hurled a grenade at Israeli troops in the northern Gaza Strip, no troops were injured.
In response to the violent riots, the IDF struck two Hamas posts in the northern Gaza Strip.
The riots on Friday were part of the near weekly “March of Return” protests held since March by Hamas. They also come just a days after hundreds of rockets were fired on Israel by Hamas terrorists.
In addition to Hamas’ standard rioting tactics, terrorists also continued to use airborne incendiary devices to launch arson attacks into Israeli territory.
This included a massive incendiary kite launched from Gaza on Saturday, which got stuck in power lines close to Kibbutz Sufa, reported the Times of Israel.
While Israeli Electric Corporation employers rushed to the scene to disengage the kite from the lines, removing it before a blaze could ignite, the kite succeeded in causing short power outage in the kibbutz.

Instead of serving as a moderating factor in the ongoing conflict in Gaza, the UN is a co-conspirator with Hamas against Israel. 
By: Rabbi Abraham Cooper
The specter of war hangs large over the Israel-Gaza border, after communities in southern Israel this week suffered a barrage of 200 Hamas missiles — including a powerful Grad missile that landed in Beersheba, far from the border. Iranian money, weapons and tactics may be fueling Hamas’ attacks, but there are other unindicted co-conspirators at work, and it is time to call one out: the United Nations.
Nikki Haley, the straight-talking undiplomatic US ambassador to the United Nations, has tried and failed to get the Security Council and General Assembly to denounce Hamas’ serial use of civilians to violently breach the Israel-Gaza dividing line. “Attacking Israel is their favorite political sport,” Haley lamented.
Indeed, cynical maneuvers at the UN have made Hamas bulletproof to even the slightest diplomatic slap. The terror group knows the world body will never condemn it for murdering Jews or putting Gaza’s civilians in harm’s way. It knows the UN will always blame the Jewish state.
Just days after 62 Palestinians were killed during a Hamas-led attempt to breach Israel’s security fence, the UN Human Rights Council voted to investigate the deaths, no doubt with an eye toward ultimately blaming Israel.
This, despite a declaration by a Hamas official that 53 of the dead were members of Hamas or affiliated with another terrorist group, Islamic Jihad — an admission that this was no “peaceful protest” by innocent Gazan civilians.
UN human rights chief Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein accused the Jewish state of keeping Gazans “caged in a toxic slum.” He failed to explain why Hamas diverts — i.e., steals — shipments of building materials meant for civilian housing repairs so it can expand its terror tunnels into Israeli territory.

Crocodiles are thriving and reproducing in the Jordan Valley, but their growth has become a major problem for the area. 
By: AP
An Israeli businessman appears to have bitten off more than he can chew with plans for a crocodile farm in a Jordan Valley community.
Hundreds of crocodiles have been stranded at the farm in a remote spot in the Jordan Valley — left behind by a pair of failed business ventures.
The crocodiles were brought to the settlement of Petzael in the mid-1990s as a tourist attraction. Ensuing Israeli-Palestinian violence kept visitors away, prompting the crocodiles’ purchase by entrepreneur Gadi Biton, who hoped to sell them for their skin.
But his venture flopped after Israel passed a law in 2012 defining the crocodile as a protected animal and banning raising the animals for sale as meat or merchandise. Multiple attempts to sell them abroad have failed.

150 rockets from Gaza hit Israel; IDF officer says sides on verge of major military clashIDF soldier at the scene of a fallen rocket in southern Israel. (IDF spokesman)
About 150 rockets have been shot from Hamas-controlled Gaza. An IDF officer says Israel may be on the verge of a major miltary confrontation.
By: World Israel News Staff
As of early Thursday morning, Hamas has fired about 150 rockets at Israel from the Gaza Strip, the IDF stated.
The IDF retaliated by targeting a number of sites used by the Hamas and other terror organizations operating in Gaza. Since Wednesday evening, the Iron Dome has intercepted 25 rockets.
The Eshkol Regional Council said early Thursday morning that a 30-year-old woman was seriously injured when a rocket hit a greenhouse where she was working. Prof. Yochanan Pfizer, deputy director of Soroka Hospital in Beersheba, told Army Radio that her life is in danger. Another person was moderately injured.
A senior IDF officer told Ha’aretz that Israel is on the verge of a major military operation in Gaza.

By: World Israel News Staff
For the first time since Operation Protective Edge in 2014, a rocket from Gaza reached Beersheva on Thursday.
The rocket fell in an open area on the outskirts of the largest city in southern Israel and caused no damage.
The mayor of Beersheva, Ruvik Danilovich, told Kan public broadcasting that the situation was unacceptable. “No country in the world would tolerate such a deterioration of security and a constant threat to their citizens,” he said.
“It is impossible to accept what is happening. It is legitimate that a nation undertakes negotiations,” Danilovich said, referring to a much-talked-about arrangement with Hamas-controlled Hamas.
“But there must be red lines.”

By: World Israel News Staff
Jason Greenblatt, assistant to President Donald Trump and Special Representative for International Negotiations, condemned Hamas for “subjecting people to the terrifying conditions of war again.”
“Hamas regime again is launching rockets at Israeli communities. Another night of terror & families huddling in fear as Israel defends itself,” he tweeted Thursday.
“This is the Hamas regime’s choice. Hamas is subjecting people to the terrifying conditions of war again,” he added.
Hamas terrorists fired over 180 rockets at Israel on Wednesday, repeatedly setting off Red Code alerts that sent them running for cover.
The Iron Dome defense system intercepted 30 rockets, while several of the explosive projectiles fell inside Israeli towns, causing several injuries, some of them serious, and extensive damage.
The Israeli Air Force (IAF) responded by attacking over 150 Hamas terror targets throughout the Strip, including a cement factory used by Hamas to build terror tunnels, a maritime terror tunnel shaft, a weapons manufacturing and storage facility, and several terror sites in military compounds.

By: World Israel News Staff
The front-runner in Brazil’s race for president, Jair Bolsonaro, recently announced his intention to move Brazil’s embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, reported JTA.
Bolsonaro added on Tuesday that if elected he would shutter the Palestinian Authority’s “embassy” in Brasilia, commenting, “Is Palestine a country? Palestine is not a country, so there should be no embassy here.”
The comments were made in a series of televised interviews in the run-up to Brazil’s elections in November, with Bolsonaro averring during one of the sit-downs, “You do not negotiate with terrorists.”
While Bolsonaro has remained a staunch supporter of the Jewish state, Brazil recognized “Palestine” as an “independent state” in 2010 under Luis Inacio Lula da Silva’s administration. A far-left politician, da Silva formed alliances with terrorist regimes such as Iran and Libya.

White House team prepares to launch Mideast peace plan
August 3, 2018


White House team prepares to launch Mideast peace planPresident Donald Trump at his desk. (AP/Manuel Balce Ceneta)
The Trump administration is assembling a Middle East policy team prior to its unveiling of an Israeli-Palestinian peace plan the president has touted as the “deal of the century.”
By: AP
U.S. officials say the Trump administration is staffing up a Middle East policy team at the White House in anticipation of unveiling its long awaited but largely mysterious Israeli-Palestinian peace plan.
The National Security Council last week began approaching other agencies seeking volunteers to join the team, which will work for President Donald Trump’s Mideast peace pointmen Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt, according to the officials.
The team, which is being set up to organize the peace plan’s public presentation and any negotiations that may ensue, will comprise three units: one concentrating on its political and security details, one on its significant economic focus and one on strategic communications, the officials said.
The creation of a White House team is the first evidence in months that a plan is advancing. Although Trump officials have long promised the most comprehensive package ever put forward toward resolving the conflict, the emerging plan has not been described with even a small amount of detail by Kushner, Greenblatt or any other official.
Timing on the release of the plan remains undecided. The State Department, Pentagon, intelligence agencies and Congress have been asked to detail personnel to the team for six months to a year, according to the officials, who were not authorized to publicly discuss the matter and spoke on condition of anonymity.
The agencies declined to comment but an NSC official said that Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, and Greenblatt, Trump’s special envoy for international negotiations, “are expanding their team and the resources available as they finalize the details and rollout strategy of the peace initiative.”
Pragmatic details
White House officials say the plan will focus on pragmatic details, rather than top-line concepts, that will be able to easier win public support.
Yet the Palestinian leadership has been openly hostile to any proposal from the Trump administration after Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in December and moved the U.S. embassy there from Tel Aviv in May.
Since the Palestinian Authority and its President Mahmoud Abbas broke off contact after the Jerusalem announcement, the U.S. negotiating team has been talking to independent Palestinian experts.
The White House expects that the Palestinian Authority will engage on the plan and has been resisting congressional demands to fully close the Palestine Liberation Organization office in Washington because Greenblatt and Kushner want to keep that channel open. But officials have offered little evidence to back that up.
Israel’s response uncertain
In addition, Israel’s response to the plan is far from certain. Although Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is one of Trump’s top foreign allies, it remains unclear if he will back massive investment in Gaza, which is run by the Hamas terror group.
For the plan to succeed or even survive the starting gate, it will need at least initial buy-in from both Israel and the Palestinians as well as from the Gulf Arab states, which officials say will be asked to substantially bankroll its economic portion. Arab officials have thus far adopted a wait-and-see approach.
Officials say there will never be a perfect time for the roll-out, but that they are laying the groundwork now for when an opportune time becomes apparent. The plan is not done, but is being finalized, including an economic development proposal for the Palestinian people that foresees major infrastructure and industrial work, particularly in Gaza.

US Assures Israel: Iran Policy Unaffected by Trump’s Offer to Meet RouhaniPresident Donald Trump and PM Netanyahu (AP Photo/Evan Vucci)
A US official reportedly communicated to Israel that there had been no change in the US’ Iran policy, notwithstanding Trump’s offer to negotiate with Tehran without any “preconditions.”
By: World Israel News and AP
Following US President Donald Trump’s offer on Monday to meet with Iran’s president without any “preconditions,” Israel was reportedly informed on Tuesday that the US’ strict policy toward Tehran has not changed.
The message was apparently relayed to an Israeli diplomatic source who cited “senior American officials” as his source, reported Times of Israel.
While Iranian officials’ initial reaction to Trump’s offer was overwhelmingly negative, Ali Akbar Nategh Nouri, a senior cleric and member of the influential Expediency Council, said Trump’s suggestion Monday that he would be willing to meet with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani should not be categorically rejected.
“It should be discussed in the Supreme National Security Council,” said Nategh Nouri, who is also a former aide to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Nategh Nouri said “we have to contemplate” the gesture, but also cautioned “we should not rejoice over this offer and not get excited.”
“Trump may take advantage of this over-excitement,” he said, the state-run IRNA news agency reported. “It could be a test for us.
The Iranian leadership has previously ruled out one-on-one talks with Trump, following his decision to pull the US out of the deal under which Iran was given relief from sanctions in return for curbs on its nuclear program.

Corbyn has been dogged as of late by accusations of anti-Semitism and demands that he root out Jew hatred from the party he leads, which is reeling from a series of controversies related both to the extreme positions its elected officials have staked out on the Jewish state and its posture toward the Jewish community in the UK.

Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri slammed the appointment as a sign that Abbas’ Fatah faction was trying to take over the supposed consensus government currently headed by Rami Hamdallah, who is officially considered a political outsider.

The officials targeted under the so-called Global Magnitsky Act are Turkish Justice Minister Abdulhamit Gül and Turkish Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters.
The US Treasury is imposing sanctions against two cabinet-level Turkish officials over the continued detention of a US pastor by the Turkish authorities, the White House spokesperson said.

Pastor Andrew Brunson, a US citizen and a Turkish resident for over two decades, has been arrested as part of Ankara’s probe into the 2016 failed military coup. He is facing up to 35 years in prison if found guilty of supporting the coup.

Treasury accused the two of “implementing Turkey's serious human rights abuses.” All their property within US jurisdiction has been blocked, and US citizens are also “generally prohibited from engaging in transactions” with the two Turkish officials.
The Trump administration has been pressuring Turkey for some time to release Brunson. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused his American counterpart of waging “psychological warfare” against Turkey over the pastor and warned that the US may lose “a strong and sincere ally” in Turkey.

As Trump threatened Turkey with sanctions on Twitter last week, Erdogan shrugged off the threat, saying the US is in no position to force Ankara back down.
"No one dictates Turkey. We will never tolerate threats from anybody. Rule of law is for everyone; no exception," Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu tweeted.
On Wednesday, Cavusoglu responded to the sanctions by tweeting that they “won’t be left without retaliation.”

By: World Israel News Staff
Russia’s Ministry of Defense on Thursday issued a rare statement thanking the IDF for a strike it conducted against Islamic State (ISIS) targets in southern Syria in retaliation for ISIS rocket fire on Israel.

On Wednesday, ISIS fired two Grad rockets at Israel’s north, setting off sirens in the area. The rockets landed in the Kinneret, Sea of Galilee, causing no damage or injuries.

The beaches were full of swimmers nearby amid the summer vacation season.

In response, the IDF aircraft targeted the rocket launcher from which they were fired. The area surrounding it was targeted by IDF artillery.

“Russian armed forces’ command in Syria used the existing communication channels to thank the IDF leadership for killing terrorists and stopping a massive provocation,” the Ministry said in a statement, according to Russia’s Sputnik News.

“A precision strike by jets and IDF artillery operatively destroyed Daesh (Arabic acronym for ISIS) terrorists and their rocket launchers,” the Russian ministry stated.

The IDF estimates that the ISIS fire was a spillover from the intense fighting between Bashar al-Assad’s advancing armies and rebel forces based adjacent to Israel border with Syria.

Ynet reported that Israeli defense officials believe ISIS launched the rockets at Israel as a provocation in an attempt to make Israel attack the Syrian army in retaliation.
This assessment is based on the fact Assad’s army was attacking ISIS from the north and east, and so any fire to the west, towards Israel, would have to be intentional, they say.
“Over the last few days, intense internal fighting has taken place in Syria adjacent to the border with Israel. The IDF will act against any attempt to compromise Israeli sovereignty and the safety of its civilians,” the IDF stated.

Egyptian president to Israelis: ‘Great chance’ for peace with Palestinians

Egyptian president to Israelis: ‘Great chance’ for peace with PalestiniansEgyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi ( Jihad Watch)
The Egyptian president called on Israelis to take advantage of a “great chance” to make peace with Palestinians.

By: World Israel News Staff

Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi on Sunday called on Israelis to take advantage of what he called “a great chance” for peace with Palestinians.
“I address the Israeli public opinion that there is a great chance for real peace and stability in the region by finding a solution to this issue,” Sisi said at a youth conference at Cairo University, according to the Xinhua news agency.

“This solution will not at all be against your security and stability,” Sisi said through the televised event, in response to a question posed to him by the audience.

Sisi, however, reiterated Egypt’s position that supports the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with eastern Jerusalem as its capital, based on the pre-1967 borders and the relevant UN resolutions.

“The ‘Deal of the Century’ is a media term rather than a political one,” he continued. “We cannot accept anything the Palestinians do not accept and we support what they accept.”

He noted that Egypt is working to significantly ease the situation for Palestinian residents of the Gaza Strip and that he has decided that the Rafah crossing will remain open – being the only crossing to the outside world, as he put it.

Al-Sisi rejected all reports on Egypt’s backing of the Trump administration’s “deal of the century.”

“Our position is clear – we stand with the UN resolutions, and with what the Palestinians agree, we will agree, and there is no other way,” he stated.

The Egyptian president said that Egypt continues to work to achieve inter-Palestinian reconciliation in order “to have a united leadership for negotiations regarding the Palestinian cause.”

Meeting with Ron Lauder
Earlier Sunday, Sisi met with US-based World Jewish Congress President Ronald Lauder. A key step on the way to achieving the goal of an Israeli Palestinian peace deal, Sisi said, was the bringing about of a Palestinian reconciliation agreement in which the Palestinian Authority restores its rule over the Gaza Strip.
In the meeting, Sissi also expressed keenness to strengthen Egypt’s strategic ties with the US, according to Egyptian media.

By: World Israel News Staff
US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman on Monday visited the family of Yotam Ovadia, who was murdered in a stabbing attack Thursday night.
“I was heartbroken to see the tragic impact of the murder of Yotam Ovadia – a young mother left alone to care for two small children, parents grieving for their only son, Friedman told Ovadia’s widow Tal.
“Words are insufficient to describe the evil and barbarity of the terrorist act.”
Ovadia, 31, was killed when a 17-year-old terrorist infiltrated the town of Adam in Samaria and stabbed three people. His funeral was held on Friday.
Ambassador Friedman visited Ovadia’s wife and two children, ages 2 and 7 months, as the family is sitting shiva, the Jewish seven-day mourning period.
The ambassador had previously condemned the attack.

Saudi Arabia has reassured Arab allies it will not endorse any peace plan proposed by the US that fails to address Jerusalem’s status or the Palestinian right of return, assuaging their concerns that the kingdom might back a US deal that aligns with Israel on key issues, Reuters reported Sunday.
King Salman’s guarantees to Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas and his public defense of traditional Arab positions in recent months have helped reverse perceptions that Saudi Arabia’s stance was changing under Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, diplomats and analysts told Reuters.

IDF forces in the Binyamin area early Monday morning arrested four Palestinians who operated the Hamas-affiliated al-Quds TV station.
The Palestinian official WAFA news agency identified the four as station head Ala Rimawi, Sami Ulwan, Husni Injass and Qutaibah Hamdan – all freelance journalists.
Al-Quds TV was declared a terror organization by Israel earlier this month, and the four suspects are being charged with incitement to terrorism.
The forces, working with Israel’s police and the Shin Bet (Israel’s Security Agency), also confiscated electronic equipment and a vehicle.
The TV station serves as a Hamas mouthpiece. Israel has been operating to shut down Palestinian media outlets and publications that incite against Israelis and promote terror attacks.

By: World Israel News Staff
Israel sent a message to the Assad regime via the Kremlin warning against massacring the civilian population in southern Syria, according to a report Monday night by Channel 12 News.
In order to ensure that Syrian forces do not carry out massacres of the population, Israel is monitoring the area and has conducted operations, noted the TV news report.
As the Assad regime, with Russian and Iranian aid, reconsolidates its control over southern Syria along Israel’s northern border for the first time since the outbreak of the civil war seven years ago, there is a real concern in Israel that Assad’s forces will take advantage of the situation to carry out large-scale killings of the civilian population.

Russia cannot force Iran to leave Syria following the end of the civil war in that country, Russian Ambassador Anatoly Viktorov told Israeli media on Monday.
By: TPS
In an interview with Hebrew-language Channel 10 on Monday, Russian Ambassador to Israel Anatoly Viktorov said that Israel’s security was a “high priority” for Russia, and added that Moscow is committed to upholding the terms of the 1974 ceasefire agreement between Israel and Syria that ended the Yom Kippur War.
But he said that all Moscow will be able to do is to “try to convince” the Iranian leadership to evacuate troops from Syria on a permanent basis.
“We want to see every part of the separation of forces agreement upheld,” Viktorov said. “We agree that on the other side of the [Israel-Syria] border, there should only be regular Syrian army troops. Securing Israel’s security is very high up on our priority list. Israel’s security is not just an empty phrase for Russia’s foreign policy.”

In its monthly Peace Index Poll, the IDI asked respondents:
“In retrospect, do you think Israel’s unilateral disengagement from the Gaza Strip in 2005 was a smart move or not a smart move from the standpoint of Israel’s national interest?”
The majority of the Jewish sample (56%) responded that the disengagement was not a smart move.

By: World Israel News Staff
Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah party staged an anti-US event in Nablus on Tuesday apparently designed to express support for the ailing leader’s rejection of US President Donald Trump’s “deal of the century” peace plan.
The rally culminated in a fiery display expressing disdain for Trump, with one Palestinian hanging an effigy of Trump from a noose while another set it ablaze, reported Palestinian Media Watch (PMW).
As the life-size Trump doll burned, the crowd cheered, including Abbas’ deputy chairman, Mahmoud Al- Aloul, who many believe will succeed Abbas.
During the proceedings, one of the rally’s hosts shouted, “Nablus is now putting the deal of the century on trial! Nablus is now putting Trump’s deal on trial!”
In a photo from the rally, which took place in Nablus’ Martyrs Square, Aloul can be seen raising two fingers in the classic victory pose.

By: World Israel News Staff
A Swedish politician and Palestinian advocate named Oldoz Javidi recently declared in an interview that she believes the solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is to expel Israel Jews to the United States.
After accusing Israel of “occupy[ing] another country” and “stealing” the Palestinians’ “freedom,” Javidi concluded, “Israel’s best friend is the United States, another infernal regime with vastly large land areas. So why don’t they invite their friends over and make room for them? They seem to do well in each other’s company,” reported the Jerusalem Post.
“Then the Palestinians can live in peace and rebuild the land that once was theirs,” Javidi stated.
Javidi was immediately blasted by writer and activist Annika Rothstein, who tweeted, “So… a candidate for parliament from the Swedish Feminist Party (FI) suggests ‘moving all the Jews from Israel to America’ as a solution to the ME conflict. Moving Jews against their will to solve a problem? Sounds like a final solution to me. Solid feminist politics.”

Authorities in Belgium, France and Germany worked together with the Mossad to track the suspects before swooping in on Saturday, July 1, to make the arrests. One alleged accomplice was caught in France, two Belgians of Iranian origin were stopped by the police in their car in Brussels, and a Vienna-based Iranian diplomat who is believed to be their leader was taken in Bavaria.
The Belgians are a husband and wife team who are alleged to have been on their way to the rally when stopped with 500 grams of the homemade explosive TATP and a detonation device in their possession.

The initial bill passed in May sought to cancel the requirement for a cabinet majority to declare war or take significant military action that could lead to war, thus permitting a prime minister to declare war together with only the defense minister or even on his own if also serving in that capacity.

Veronika Cohen, a Hungarian Holocaust survivor, held a sign reading “never again.”
“I don’t think that you have to be a Holocaust survivor or a Hungarian to be here to say that Orban has no business coming here,” she said.
Among the sources of criticism leveled at the four-time Hungarian prime minister was his praise last year for Miklos Horthy — Hungary’s World War II-era ruler who introduced anti-Semitic laws and collaborated with the Nazis.

UK rabbis attack the Labour party for adopting a new code that claims radical criticism of Israeli policies is not anti-Semitism.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel New
Sixty-eight rabbis from across the religious denominational spectrum in the United Kingdom sent an open letter Monday to the opposition Labour Party to protest a code of conduct regarding anti-Semitism that its national executive committee (NEC) is set to approve Tuesday.
In the letter, published in The Guardian, the rabbis stated: “It is not the Labour party’s place to rewrite a definition of antisemitism,” which has been accepted by the British government, the Scottish Parliament, the Welsh assembly, “but above all else, accepted by the vast majority of Jewish people in Britain and globally.”
That definition is the one written by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA). The NEC, however, has significantly watered down the original. It reportedly omits at least four aspects of what constitutes anti-Semitism, including accusing Jews of “being more loyal to Israel” than their own country; claiming that Israel’s existence is a “racist endeavor”; applying a “double standard” on Israel; and comparing “contemporary Israeli policy” to that of the Nazis.

By: World Israel News Staff
Hamas has reportedly accepted the terms of a deal proposed by Egypt to end a decade-long dispute with its rival Fatah.
The Times of Israel reported early Friday morning that Hamas had accepted an Egyptian reconciliation proposal and is awaiting Fatah’s response.
Egypt has reportedly exerted heavy pressure on Hamas and Fatah to end the quarrel.
Senior Hamas official Musa Abu Marzouk revealed on Wednesday that Egypt had presented the new offer.
Abu Marzouk said that the deal calls for the immediate lifting of sanctions imposed by the Palestinian Authority (PA) on the Gaza Strip a year ago, while Fatah will assume its responsibilities in the Gaza Strip, reported the Jerusalem Post.
The sanctions leveled by PA head Mahmoud Abbas include the forced retirement of thousands of PA civil servants and the suspension of social assistance to hundreds of families. In addition, Abbas has refused to pay Israel for electricity and fuel supplies to the Gaza Strip.
Hamas and the Fatah-led PA have made multiple attempts at reconciliation since Hamas took control of Gaza with brutal force, and most recently signed a reconciliation agreement in November 2017, but have yet to implement it, instead escalating the conflict with mutual antagonism.
Fatah, led by Abbas, and Hamas have waged a battle for power and control, and tensions between the two factions continue to rise.

Addressing the Heritage Foundation, a Washington-based think tank, Haley condemned the UNHRC. “More often, the Human Rights Council has provided cover, not condemnation, for the world’s most inhumane regimes. It has been a bully pulpit for human rights violators,” she stated.
The US announced in June that it was officially withdrawing from the UNHRC. Prior to the announcement, the US had engaged in extensive diplomatic efforts for more than a year to address the critical flaws of the Council, especially its persistent bias against Israel and the ability of human rights violators to win elections to the Council and undermine its effectiveness.

Yousef Kamil and Mohammed Abu al-Roub, both of Kabatiya in Samaria, will also be required to pay NIS 250,000 in damages.
Outside the courtroom, Shmerling’s family praised the court’s decision to hand down the maximum sentence.
The 69-year-old Shmerling was a resident of Elkana in Samaria. He was stabbed and beaten to death by two men who were his employees at their workplace in the Arab-Israeli city of Kafr Kassem on October 4.

During a joint press conference with Netanyahu, Hungary’s prime minister says his country has ‘zero tolerance’ for anti-Semitism.

By: World Israel News Staff

Hungary has “zero tolerance” for anti-Semitism, Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban said Thursday.

Antisemitism in western Europe is on the rise, while it is declining in eastern Europe, Orban added before meeting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at his office as part of his four-day Israel trip.

Orban appeared to tie the rise in anti-Semitism to the influx in the number of Muslim immigrants to the Europe continent. While western Europe has taken in millions of immigrants, most of them Muslims from the Middle East, Africa and Asia, Hungary and other eastern European countries have fastidiously guarded their borders and prevented immigrants from entering by building walls and instituting tough rules for absorption.
Referring to Hungary’s geographic location, Orban said his country has a problem “with immigration and terrorism,” arguing that terrorists, ostensibly from the Middle East, are “abusing immigration routes to come to Europe.”

By: World Israel News Staff
Israel and Russia are reportedly working out the arrangements on Israel’s border with Syria ahead of the Assad regime’s reassertion of control of southern Syria.
The 1974 Separation of Forces Agreement is serving as the model.
Israel Radio reported Wednesday that in addition to talks between the two countries’ leaders, mutual work groups have been studying issues such as no-man’s land, demilitarized zones and the deployment of Israeli and Syrian forces on both sides of the border.
Citing a Russian diplomat, the report said that Israel and Syria have agreed to return to the 1974 Separation of Forces Agreement drawn up in the wake of the 1973 Yom Kippur War.

By: World Israel News Staff
Nidal Hamed Salah, an Israeli-Arab from the town of Jaljulia, was arrested last month after returning from Syria, where he fought with the Islamic State (ISIS) terror group.
Salah was successful in joining ISIS in October 2015 after paragliding into Syria from the Golan Heights.
Arrested immediately upon his return to Israel almost three years later, he was charged on Wednesday at the Central District court with joining a terrorist group, providing information to an enemy, contacting a foreign agent, illegally exiting the country and several weapons violations.
He was a part of a seven-member cell of Arabs with Israeli citizenship who had made plans to join the ISIS terror organization in Syria.
The aspiring terrorists, all residents of the town of Jaljulia and in their 20s, planned to follow Salah but were arrested by Israeli security forces before they had the chance.
Salah’s flight to Syria prompted an investigation, which led to the exposure of the cell.

Hamas harnessed incendiary materials to a falcon and sent it towards Israel, marking a new development in the terror group’s arson terrorism against Israel’s south.
Gilad Gabai, a National Parks Authority ranger, discovered the bird on Monday near Nahal Habesor with the flammable materials tied to its tail. The bird was dead, after apparently igniting a fire nearby.
Gabai told IDF Radio on Tuesday that “animals are already being burned as a result of the fire kite and balloon terrorism. Now we see that they [Hamas] have moved on to using animals as a weapon. This is very distressing.”

There was nothing stated publicly during the Putin-Trump summit in Helsinki that suggests a major change of policy in Syria — and for Israel that might not be such a bad thing.
By: Mati Wagner, World Israel News
Ahead of the summit in Helsinki between US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, the concerns of Americans and Europeans, as well as Israelis, were mainly focused on what concessions — if any — Trump would make to Putin.
There was absolutely no expectation that Putin would concede to Trump on any significant position. He would not commit to stop undermining the European Union, he would not agree to cease actions aimed at weakening the NATO alliance, he would never remove Russian forces occupying eastern Ukraine or reverse the takeover of Crimea. Nor would he cease collaboration with Iran in Syria, let alone support US efforts to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons by restoring sanctions.
However, the worry of many in the West and in Israel was that Trump would give in to Russia. For Europeans and Americans, concerns focused mainly on issues such as the US’s continued support for NATO, its continued military aid to western Ukraine as a bulwark against Russian encroachment and the renewal of the new Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START).

On Monday, the IDF staged an extensive military drill simulating a ground operation in the Gaza Strip.
The drill was launched in the Negev region, with Beersheba serving as a stand-in for the type of urban terrain IDF soldiers would encounter in Gaza’s cities, reported Israel’s Channel 10 news.
After a weekend in which Hamas fired around 200 rockets from Gaza into Israeli territory, injuring civilians and damaging property including a synagogue, the Negev-based IDF drill has been interpreted was a warning to terror groups in the Gaza Strip.

The Shiite Muslim extremist leader vowed that Trump’s “deal of the century will never happen,” referring to the US president’s plan to settle the conflict between the Palestinians and Israel.
“To the dismay of the U.S. politicians, Palestine will never be forgotten and al-Quds [Jerusalem] will remain the capital of Palestine and the first Qibla of Muslims,” said Khamenei in another tweet.
As reported by Arutz 7, the 78-year-old cleric predicted Israel’s ultimate demise as well, predicting ominously, “They will see the day when the roots of the fabricated Zionist regime will dry up.”

Syrian rebel forces claimed that 22 people, including nine Iranians, were killed in an overnight strike in northern Syria blamed on Israel, the Qatar-based al-Jazeera network reported Monday.
The figure, which could not be confirmed, was much higher than an earlier report of nine deaths provided by a Syrian watchdog group.
Iranian forces were stationed at a Syrian military base on the outskirts of Aleppo that was reportedly attacked Sunday night by the IDF.

By: World Israel News Staff
Israel is ramping up attacks against Iranian supply lines in Syria to prevent the flow of arms from Iran to Iranian and Hezbollah forces based in Syria and Lebanon, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.
The article was published Monday as Israel reportedly launched another attack against Iranian forces in Syria, this time in Aleppo.
In June, Israel reportedly targeted a compound on the Syria-Iraq border, according to a security official. Israel has also carried out attacks against military targets closer to home in Damascus, Homs and Hama, foreign media reports say.
Israel considers it paramount to roll back Iran’s territorial expansion before the US draws down its forces, the Wall Street Journal said, pointing to the June strike as indicating that urgency.
In previous bombings of purported Iranian assets over the past few years, Israel has almost exclusively struck southern and central Syria.

A military court sentenced Hamza Faiz Monday to 14 years in jail for a stabbing attack almost three years ago in which one woman was seriously injured in her back.
He was also ordered to pay half a million shekels in damages to Nirit Zmora, the victim – 10% of what had been demanded by her lawyer.
The lighter-than-usual sentence for such a terror attack stemmed from the fact that the three military judges had convicted him only of aggravated battery and possession of a knife, and not attempted murder, because Faiz struck Zmora only once.

Gutnick told the Post‘s Gil Hoffman in an exclusive interview that he has built a relationship with Shaked in recent years and has pledged his resources to her success.
Gutnick said that he chose Shaked because of her right-wing views, her leadership skills and her ability as a secular Jew who respects religion to unite Israelis. He also believes the time has come for Israel to have its second female prime minister after Golda Meir.
Gutnick has secretly been advising Shaked to leave Jewish Home and join Likud. He said that Jewish Home head Naftali Bennett should stand aside and not “be selfish.”
“He should encourage Shaked for the sake of maintaining all of the Land of Israel and the Jewish world, because he has no chance to be prime minister, and he can be foreign minister,” Gutnick said.

By: World Israel New Staff
In January, Israel used a Mossad-orchestrated operation in Iran to capture over 50,000 pages and 163 compact discs of memos, videos and plans related to Tehran’s nuclear program.
On Sunday, the New York Times revealed new details about the operation that one of its reporters gleaned after viewing key documents from the heist, at the invitation of the Israeli government.
The Times reporter concluded after reviewing the documents that “[d]espite Iranian insistence that its [nuclear] program was for peaceful purposes, the country had worked in the past to systematically assemble everything it needed to produce atomic weapons.”
Back in April, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu arrived at a similar conclusion in a presentation in which he reviewed the central findings from the trove of evidence.

Opinion: A tale of two meetings – Netanyahu, Putin and Trump Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (Jim Hollander/Pool Photo via AP)
Israel is uniquely positioned to strike a deal with Russia regarding Iran’s future involvement in Syria. 
By: Daniel Krygier, World Israel News
Hours after Israel reportedly downed a Syrian drone, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met Russia’s President Vladimir Putin in Moscow. On the agenda was once again Iran as well as Israeli and Russian interests in Syria.
It was their ninth meeting since Russia entered militarily into the Syrian war in September 2015. The meeting took place just days ahead of Putin’s scheduled talk with President Donald Trump in Helsinki, Finland.
Over the past three years, Russian and Israeli interests have increasingly converged.
In 2015, Israel sought to improve its ties with Russia while facing a hostile Obama administration that undermined Israel’s security.
By contrast, Israel is strongly supported by a friendly Trump administration. Trump has also increasingly adopted Israel’s key positions on Iran. He left the Iran nuclear deal and supports Israel’s demand that Iran leave Syria.
Israel’s security has been greatly strengthened by Netanyahu’s excellent relations with both Trump and Putin.

The new ceasefire achieved between Israel and Hamas includes an end to the launching of bomb-laden kites and arson balloons into Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu asserted.
“I heard it being said that Israel has agreed to a ceasefire that would allow the continuation of terrorism by incendiary kites and balloons; this is incorrect. We are not prepared to accept any attacks against us and we will respond appropriately,” Netanyahu said at the beginning of the weekly cabinet meeting Sunday morning.
Over the weekend, Israel “hit Hamas in a significant way and hard,” he continued. “Our policy is clear: Whoever hurts us, we will hit them with great strength. This is what we did yesterday. The IDF dealt Hamas the harshest blow since Operation Protective Edge. I hope that they got the message; if not, they will get it later.”

By: World Israel News Staff
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday spoke with President Donald Trump ahead of the latter’s summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland, on Monday.
Speaking during the weekly cabinet meeting on Sunday, Netanyahu said that he and Trump “discussed security and diplomatic issues in light of developments in the region, with Syria and Iran first and foremost, of course.”
Netanyahu said that he thanked Trump “for his strong policy against Iran because since this policy has been taken, we have seen a great effect on – and inside – Iran. President Trump clearly reiterated his commitment to the security of Israel and his willingness to help the state of Israel in various fields and, of course, I thanked him for that.”
Netanyahu met with Putin in Moscow last week, where they discussed similar issues. This was their ninth meeting in three years.
Trump and Putin will discuss the ongoing civil war in Syria and Iran’s military presence in the country.

Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh spoke on Sunday at the funeral of two Palestinian teenagers killed Saturday in an Israeli Air force (IAF) airstrike, claiming that the Palestinians “are on the road to victory.”
“The issue of Palestine, Jerusalem and Gaza is still on the top of our agenda. The solution to the situation in Gaza is to lift the siege. The Palestinian people do not believe in promises about projects. The people want to see real results that will bring an end to this siege,” he declared.

Rightwing politicians slammed the ceasefire reached Saturday night between Israel and Hamas, saying it would enable the terror organization to regroup and continue its belligerence. 
By: World Israel News Staff
The ceasefire reached Saturday night with Hamas is bad for Israel because it allows Hamas to dictate the terms of the conflict and to regroup before the next round of clashes, politicians on the right said Sunday.
Education Minister Naftali Bennett, head of the Jewish Home party, said that Hamas was dictating the pace of the conflict and called the ceasefire “a serious mistake.”
In an interview with Kan Radio Sunday morning, Bennett called to “demilitarize” the Gaza Strip and said that he had presented Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with a plan to do that.
Bennett referred to his plan as “very sophisticated, surprising and different” as well as “including military, civilian and political processes.”
In another radio interview with Kol Baramah, Bennett said that evacuation of parts of the south might be necessary.

By: World Israel News Staff
Arab Joint List Member of Knesset Ahmed Tibi called on young Arab couples facing a shortage of housing in the Galilee region’s Arab communities to purchase apartments in the area’s Jewish cities and communities.
Tibi’s comments came as the Knesset debates a controversial nation-state of the Jewish people bill that would permit the creation of all-Jewish communities that ban Arab citizens.
The Supreme Court has ruled that such a ban is prohibited by a Basic Law: Human Dignity and Liberty.
Tibi made the comments in an interview with Israel Hayom. “In light of the housing and land shortage within Arab communities and the poor infrastructure there, I am calling on young people who wish to do so to go live in Jewish communities like Carmiel, Afula, Nazareth Illit and Harish, in addition to the mixed [Arab and Jewish] cities.”

“It is not enough that the EU finances NGOs that strive to undermine the State of Israel and finance illegal construction. It is now interfering with Israeli legislation. Apparently, they do not understand that Israel is a sovereign state.”
This was the wording of a press statement issued on Thursday by the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office informing that he has instructed the Foreign Ministry director general to summon the EU ambassador to Israel, Emanuele Giaufret, for a second reprimand, and that “he also intends to take additional steps.”
Giaufret appeared at the Foreign Ministry on Friday morning, but no details from the meeting were released.

IDF protects Jews’ visit to graves of biblical Elazar and Itamar in Shechem

IDF protects Jews’ visit to graves of biblical Elazar and Itamar in ShechemGraves of Elazar and Itamar (Wikipedia)
Hundreds of worshipers accompanied by IDF troops enter Shechem to pray at the grave sites of biblical figures Elazar and Itamar, near Shechem (Nablus).
By: World Israel News Staff
Some 400 Israelis on Tuesday night visited the biblical-era graves of Elazar and Itamar, situated in the town of Awarta, near Shechem (Nablus), Arutz 7 reported.
Elazar and Itamar were the sons of Aharon, the High Priest when the Israelites wandered in the Sinai Desert prior to their entry into the Holy Land. According to Jewish tradition, the first day of the Jewish month of Av is the anniversary of Aharon’s death.
The worshipers’ visit was heavily secured by IDF troops, as the site is situated within an area under Palestinian Authority control.
Samaria Brigade Regional Defense Officer Major Shlomi Cohen commented, “It’s not often that there is a secured trip to the graves of Elazar and Itamar. Tonight, the visit to Awarta was accompanied by IDF forces, in order to allow organized prayer at the site.”
“Entry to the graves of righteous people is done in a concentrated fashion and is possible through organized coordination with the brigade. This time as well, brigade forces acted in order to ensure order at the site and to ensure the visitors’ safety,” he added.

Knesset animal cruelty bill halting live shipments passes first hurdle

Knesset animal cruelty bill halting live shipments passes first hurdle(Israel Against Live Shipments/Facebook)
A Knesset bill preventing live shipments of animals to Israel gains broad support.

By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News

The Ministerial Committee on Legislation announced Monday that it will throw its support behind a bill sponsored by Likud MK Mickey Zohar to phase out live animal shipments to Israel over the next three years.

If the bill becomes law, businesses will have to reduce their importation of sheep and calves from Europe and Australia by at least 25% a year, starting almost immediately.

According to government figures, an astounding 363,456 such animals were shipped to Israel during the first half of 2018 alone, which represented a 36% increase over the same period last year.

Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel has declared in the past that he would reduce the number of such transports.

The impetus for the law is the recent revelation in various media of the cruelty these animals suffer on their long trips to the slaughterhouse, which aroused the pity of politicians and the public alike.

The sea voyage could take weeks, say the explanatory notes to the bill, and many of the animals get sick. “They are kept in overcrowded conditions, wallowing in their feces…suffering from extreme heat and injuries.”

By: World Israel News Staff

A court on Thursday ordered that an Israeli minor suspected of being an accomplice in the Duma arson, which claimed the lives of three members of a Palestinian family, be released to house arrest.

The unnamed minor, together with Amiram Ben Uliel, 23, are charged with membership in a terrorist organization and the planning the July 2015 firebomb attack in the village of Duma near Shechem (Nablus) in Samaria. Ben Uliel is also charged with executing the attack in which three members of the Dawabshe family were burned to death and a fourth suffered severe injuries.

The release comes after two and a half years of arrest, which included intense interrogation by the Shin Bet (Israel’s Security Agency).

The minor is reportedly suffering from poor physical and mental health

He was released under severe constraints, including a required electronic ankle bracelet, court-approved oversight and a ban on his communications. The execution of the order was withheld until Sunday, allowing the prosecution to appeal.

Last month, the court ruled that confessions in the case obtained through the use of “enhanced interrogation” techniques were inadmissible as evidence. However, the court ruled that key confessions repeated later were valid.

Minister of Justice Ayelet Shaked on Wednesday night expressed her hope that the court would act with benevolence and enable the minor to conduct his defense outside prison.

Offering general advice, she recommended that both sides learn from the latest developments and not rush to pass verdicts based on headlines in the media.

“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.”

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.”

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.

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.

While the United Nations’ (UN) longstanding anti-Israel bias has been extensively documented, a report published on Monday by monitor group UN Watch includes new accusations, including widespread failure to condemn or fight anti-Semitism in meaningful ways.
Specifically, the report’s authors maintain that the UN’s vigilance in addressing racism and other forms of discrimination does not extend to speaking out against attacks on Jews.

The New York-based Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany said Tuesday that brings total funding next year to 480 million euros to help survivors.
Claims Conference negotiator Greg Schneider says “these elderly heroes deserve the recognition that increased payments and much-needed services will provide.”

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.

vNetanyahu blasts committee for justifying polygamy among Bedouin

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Mexico City makes history, elects first Jew and first woman as mayor

Mexico City makes history, elects first Jew and first woman as mayorNew Mexico City Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum Pardo (Twitter)
Claudia Sheinbaum Pardo is both the first woman and the first Jew to win the mayoral race in Mexico City.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
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.

By: World Israel News Staff 
Two minor seismic temblors shook Israel’s north Thursday morning, after four tremors hit Wednesday.
The most severe quake occurred Wednesday at a magnitude of 4.7 on the Richter scale. Earlier the area was shaken by a 4.0 magnitude tremor.
These earlier quakes were felt by Israeli residents as far south as Tel Aviv, Modiin and Jerusalem, and also in Lebanon and Syria to the north.
The epicenter of the earthquake was in the Lower Galilee, around nine kilometers north of Tiberias.

By: World Israel News Staff
Israel considers Syrian regime forces that enter the demilitarized buffer zone between the two countries a legitimate target, according to reports by Israel TV news Wednesday night.
“Any entry into the demilitarized zone, even a single tank, will be fair game for the IDF,” a Kan TV defense reporter quoted a defense official as saying.
Meanwhile, Channel 10 reported that the military has deployed units from IDF intelligence corps near the border to track Syrian forces returning to the area as part of the regime offensive to retake rebel-held territory in southern Syria.
The IDF estimates that Assad’s forces, which enjoy the backing of Russian troops and air cover, will reconquer the Syrian side of the Golan Heights.

Senior Palestinian officials condemned a new Israeli law that financially penalizes the Palestinian Authority (PA) for paying stipends to terrorists and their families, vowing never to stop this practice.
“The Palestinian Authority will never stop paying salaries to the families of prisoners and martyrs,” senior PA officials told an Israel Radio reporter.
“Netanyahu is destroying the Palestinian Authority by deducting these funds from the taxes. In the end, he’ll need to replace the Authority and pay all of the salaries in the West Bank and Gaza,” they threatened.
Presidential spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeineh on Tuesday said the PA “categorically rejects this grave decision and considers it harmful to relations.”

By: World Israel News Staff and AP
ISIS’s social media outlets announced Tuesday that that the son of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed in fighting in Syria.
The announcements included a picture of a young boy carrying a rifle and identified him as Huthaifa al-Badri.
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

 Print  Email  12 Comments
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.

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 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 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.

By: AP and World Israel News Staff
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.
