UN Security Council To Discuss Annexation

1
Annexation: The United Nations Security Council will meet on Wednesday to discuss the ramifications of possible Israeli annexation of parts of the West Bank. Both Israel and the Palestinian Authority will have a chance to present their position about Israel’s sovereignty during the discussion, as will members of the UNSC.

On a rare visit to the West Bank, Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi warned that Israeli annexation plans pose an "unprecedented danger."

2
In Gaza, disappointment with Hamas's inability to orchestrate a prisoner swap is growing. The terror group, inspired by the 2001 Shalit deal, is seeking a similar exchange now. However, Hamas’s rigid stance has brought indirect negotiations with Israel to a halt, which could lead to another round of escalation.

3
The European Union for the first time has canceled a grant to a Palestinian nonprofit for refusing to sign a clause that would obligate it to ensure no terrorist organizations benefit from the funded programs.

Brussels’ decision comes on the heels of a bitter controversy over its support for Palestinian NGOs, which resulted in Israel rebuking the EU ambassador in Tel Aviv over the bloc’s ostensible “funding of terrorist organizations.”

4
Antisemitism Watch: “Massacre the Jews, God, hit them with your sword, for they have left God, they have left the nations,” Pastor Tupirani da Hora Lores shouted at dozens of congregants earlier this month at his Geracao Jesus Cristo church in Rio de Janeiro, during a recording of his sermon. 


Anti-Defamation League claims in a new report that textbooks used in schools affiliated with Lebanon's Hezbollah terrorist group display a disturbing pattern of anti-Semitic tropes, including Jews being described as 'enemies of humanity in the past, present, and future
 

St. Louis residents began a petition to change the city's name as its namesake, King Louis IX, was a known antisemite and Islamophobe. They additionally called to have his statue taken down.

Newly-published police data showed that Jews were the most targeted group for hate crimes in the greater Toronto area last year.

Jordanian King: Annexation Threatens Regional Stability

1
Annexation: Jordan’s King Abdullah II warned US lawmakers that Israel’s plan to annex parts of the West Bank was “unacceptable” and would undermine regional stability. Abdullah spoke with US senators and emphasized the kingdom’s commitment to the establishment of an independent Palestinian state. 

Almost 50 UN human rights experts have condemned Israel's plan to annex parts of the West Bank. Such a move would violate international law and leave what would amount to "a Palestinian Bantustan", they warned.


2
UAE's Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash, addressing a major US-Jewish online conference, reiterated his view that the decades-long Arab boycott of Israel has not yielded the desired results. The minister advocated for “open lines of communications” and increased liaison with Jerusalem in various areas, such as technology and health. 

3
Palestinian security services have been destroying secret documents, fearing possible Israeli raids on their offices as the Jewish State weighs annexing parts of the West Bank. During the Second Intifada Israeli security forces repeatedly stormed offices of the Palestinian security services and removed confidential documents.

4
US President Donald Trump's peace plan will lead to a large number of archaeological sites in the West Bank, including many that are part of Jewish history and tradition, being placed or remaining under Palestinian control. This was the conclusion reached by an organization that represents a network of entities devoted to "protecting antiquities in Israel and Judea and Samaria.”

5
Antisemitism Watch: At Florida State University, the new Student Senate president, Ahmad Daraldik, was found to have made racist and antisemitic statements online in multiple social media posts. A petition calling for Daraldik's removal states that he compared the Israeli government to Nazi Germany’s genocide of the Jews.

Orthodox Jewish politicians serving Haredi neighborhoods in Brooklyn are calling New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio out once again for what they say is a double standard. While gates to parks and playgrounds in their districts are locked as a coronavirus precaution, residents in other parts of the city are seemingly allowed in.

What's the Cost of PA's High-Risk Strategy Against Annexation?

1
The Palestinian Authority's end of coordination with Israel is already proving to be a high-risk strategy to oppose annexation.

 

Per National Public Radio, the lack of coordination is already leading to breakdowns of policing and taxing, while Palestinians are no longer able to get treatment in Israeli hospitals. What will be the ultimate cost of the PA's game plan?

2
MediaCentral, an initiative of HonestReporting, has been notified of an award from The Genesis Project. The award is part of the Project’s “Speak Out for Israel” program granted on behalf of its 2019 Genesis Prize Laureate, Robert Kraft.

 

The award recognizes MediaCentral’s trailblazing work relating to highlighting Israel’s tolerance towards minorities, and scientific and technological achievements. MediaCentral assists hundreds of foreign journalists stationed in Israel to ensure accurate, comprehensive and unbiased coverage about Israel and the Middle East to the tens of millions in their audiences. For more about Media Central, click here.

3
The Jerusalem municipality is proceeding with a bypass road linking the capital's southern Har Homa neighborhood with Maale Adumim in the north. Officials told Reuters the road will relieve traffic for Israelis and Palestinians in eastern Jerusalem.

 

Though Palestinians claim the road will only benefit settlers, the charge of so-called "apartheid roads" doesn't stand up to scrutiny.

4
The US is considering withholding aid to Jordan to force Amman to extradite a woman convicted in Israel of a 2001 bombing. Ahlam Aref Ahmad Al-Tamimi, who has been living in Jordan after being freed in an Israeli prisoner swap, is on the FBI's most wanted list because two of the 15 people killed in the attack were American citizens.

 

Jordan's King Abdullah is visiting Washington this week.

5
Palestinians in Gaza fired a rocket at Israel last night, which landed in an open field. The IDF retaliated with strikes on an unspecified "underground structure" and Hamas observation posts. Earlier that day, a senior Hamas official called on Palestinians to oppose annexation with "resistance in all forms."

6
Antisemitism Watch: While Confederate statues are being toppled, a German church reinstated an antisemitic ‘Jew-sow’ sculpture. White supremacists vandalized Nashville's Holocaust memorial with vulgar antisemitic messages. The Jerusalem Post picked up on a report exposing a network of right-wing antisemitic hatred on social media.

 

An Argentine journalist is under fire for equating the "great propaganda apparatuses" of the previous century, "such as those of Nazism, Zionism, Stalinism or Peronism." In more positive news, Spain's Balearic Islands adopted the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance's working definition of antisemitism.

Hamas In Uproar Over Iranian Spy in Terror Group's Midst

1
Hamas ties with Iran and Hezbollah took a hit after the Gaza terror group discovered one of its own was spying for Iran.

 

The unidentified spy -- who worked closely with senior Hamas figure Yousef Abu Marzouk -- was reportedly recruited by Hezbollah and is said to have fled to Sudan when his cover was blown.

2
Annexation Issues: A United Arab Emirates diplomat penned an op-ed for Ynet, the first time an Arab from the Gulf state has openly and directly engaged Israelis. In the op-ed, Yousef Al Otaiba, the UAE ambassador to the US warned against annexation. Background at the Times of Israel.

 

Israel plans to conduct a census in West Bank areas slated for sovereignty. According to Israeli reports picked up by United Press International, "The aim is to prevent Palestinians from moving into the areas just before they are annexed as a way to gain Israeli residency or even citizenship."

 

The PA is now working with Fatah armed groups after ending coordination with Israel. Until recently, groups like the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades and the Tanzim helped the PA enforce COVID restrictions; however, Ramallah is now turning a blind eye to the armed factions raising their profile in the West Bank.

Could Annexation Lead to Sanctions Against Israel?

1
Annexation: Palestinian and European officials hint that some countries could retaliate by recognizing a Palestinian state and sanctioning Israel.


The Islamic Jihad terror organization is boosting its presence in the West Bank. Meanwhile, according to Israeli media reports, some Palestinians are enthusiastic about Israel's potential West Bank annexation.


In the US, AIPAC told lawmakers that they are free to criticize Israel’s looming annexation plans — just as long as the criticism stops there. What makes this message unusual is that the leading pro-Israel lobby in the US has long made it a policy to discourage public criticism of Israel.

2
Israeli police: "There is no procedure that allows an officer of the Israel Police to carry out an arrest by placing a knee on the neck of a suspect."  

3
The Palestinian Authority refused a planeload of medical supplies from the United Arab Emirates. This supplies were turned away because their delievery was coordinated with Israel rather than the PA.

4
The IDF thwarted an Iranian cyberattack on the military's supply chain. The supply chain connects the IDF to the civilian services from which it receives gas, food, and other crucial supplies. 

5
Antisemitism Watch: A synagogue in Walla Walla, Washington, is calling on the town’s police department to apologize for defending an officer who sports a tattoo resembling the insignia of the SS, the Nazi paramilitary force. 

 

The National Gallery has withdrawn a YouTube video that portrays the Biblical Samson as an Israeli terrorist.

Is the PA Laying Groundwork For a New Intifada?

1
Two developments in the West Bank raise questions whether the Palestinian Authority is gearing up for a third intifada.

 

First, Palestinian intelligence offices in at least two West Bank cities have been ordered to hide sensitive documents ahead of possible anti-annexation violence. Israeli media reports say the last time the PA issued such an order was in 2000, before the outbreak of the Second Intifada.

 

Second, the PA has started cooperating with the Fatah-funded Tanzim militia to maintain order in Palestinian communities that are under Israeli security control. Ynet writes:

 

"The officials also said that this unusual cooperation between the Palestinian government and Tanzim could embolden the militant group's members to point their weapons at Israeli security forces in case tensions escalate . . . ."

2
Times of Israel: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu intends to apply Israeli sovereignty to three main settlement blocs of Gush Etzyon, Maale Adumim and Ariel, but not immediately to the Jordan Valley or other settlement areas.

 

Netanyahu reportedly feels that there is greater domestic consensus support to apply sovereignty to those blocs, and that this would create less friction with Jordan.

3
PA Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh said he made a counter-proposal to the US peace plan and presented it to the Quartet of Mideast mediators, namely the US, UN, European Union and Russia.

 

Shtayyeh was scant on details, only saying the proposal calls for a de-militarized Palestinian state in the West Bank, Gaza and eastern Jerusalem based on the 1949 Green Line with possible minor land swaps.

4
Israel's High Court of Justice struck down the controversial Settlements Regulation law. Passed in 2017, The law would have retroactively recognized more than 4,000 illegal housing units built on privately owned Palestinian land.

 

The ruling paves the way for Palestinian landowners to take legal action to evict the people living in the unauthorized homes. It also sends a tacit message to the International Criminal Court that Israel respects international law.

5
The United Arab Emirates' national airline, Etihad, flew directly to Israel's Ben Gurion Airport with another shipment of medical aid for the Palestinians. Last month, the PA refused to accept a similar delivery, insisting it wasn't coordinated and that the PA didn't want to help Arab countries normalize ties with Israel. Israel and the UAE do not have diplomatic ties.

 

PA officials said yesterday's delivery wasn't coordinated with Ramallah.

Ruling Paves Way for War Crimes Probe Against Israel

1
In a blow to Israel, the International Criminal Court's chief prosecutor said that a probe of alleged Israeli war crimes against the Palestinians can move forward despite the Oslo accords continuing to be in effect.

Per the Jerusalem Post, "Israel has until June 24 to reply, but may also choose not to so as not to give recognition to the ICC’s investigation."

2
"Israel has confiscated some 2.5 million shekels ($724,000) of the tax money it collects on behalf of the Palestinian Authority to be paid to three Palestinians who were subjected to torture after the PA accused them of working with Israel."

3
The PA's ending of cooperation with Israel has left hundreds of Palestinian medical patients in the West Bank and Gaza unable to get treatment in Israel. Haaretz reports that the PA Health Ministry is no longer coordinating with Israel on matters such as medical permits, hospital appointments or vouchers covering treatment costs.

4
Israeli police detained 25 Fatah-affiliated activists accused of "carrying out activities on behalf of the PA and its security forces" in Jerusalem. Israeli-Palestinian agreements prohibit the Palestinians from political activity in the state of Israel or eastern Jerusalem.

5
Prominent Arab Israeli singer Mira Awad slammed rock star Rogers Waters over his BDS support.

6
Antisemitism Watch: A number of Texas Republican officials are taking heat for suggesting George Soros is behind the George Floyd protests. Rapper Ice Cube is under fire for tweeting an antisemitic image. British left-wing activist Tariq Ali linked Israel to the death of George Floyd.

The Australian Financial News is facing a storm of criticism for publishing an ‘antisemitic’ cartoon of the country’s Jewish treasurer. And on a more positive note, Argentina adopted the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance's working definition of antisemitism.

HonestReporting Takes Legal Action Against Twitter and Ayatollah Khamenei
BY DANIEL POMERANTZ  MAY 31, 2020
khameni
Ali Hosseini Khamenei, the current Supreme Leader of Iran, is spreading hate and calls for violence against Israel and Jews.  That’s nothing new.  Except now the Iranian dictator is becoming increasingly active on Twitter.  These days “media” is not just print and television, but social media too; and that’s where HonestReporting comes in.

Khamenei is abusing his Twitter account to broadly distribute antisemitic conspiracy theories, threats of violence and incitement for others to commit violence, including a link to his web site which contains calls for a Final Solution: a thinly veiled reference to Hitler’s notorious plan to murder all Jewish people in the world, which formed the centerpiece of the Holocaust.


Other specific examples include: calling the Jewish state a “cancerous tumor,” and calling for Palestinians to defeat the “Zionist enemy” through greater “access to weapons.” Like many modern antisemites, Khamenei declares he is not actually a Jew-hater, before going on to portray himself as a mere anti-Zionist whose aim is to “eliminate” the worlds only Jewish state, and the country with the world’s biggest concentration of Jews. 


Khamenei TV
@Khamenei_tv
The enemies misinterpret the Islamic Republic’s idea of “eliminating Israel”. Eliminating Israel does not mean eliminating Jewish people. We are not #Antisemitic; Jews live in peace in Iran. Eliminating Israel represents elimination of the imposed Zionist regime.

Incitement to violence is not only not free speech, it’s also illegal under U.S. law. So is aiding and abetting incitement to violence, which is exactly what Twitter is doing in this case. 

Incitement to violence violates Twitter’s terms and conditions, terms which the company often enforces aggressively even against only marginal violations. So why does one of the world’s most brutal dictators receive different treatment?



Last year, when Airbnb adopted a discriminatory policy against Israeli communities in the disputed territories, HonestReporting took action  with the United States Office of Antiboycott Compliance. This time, we have filed a complaint with the Hate Crimes Division of the US Department of Justice. We also sent a copy of the complaint to Elan Carr, the State Department’s Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism, as well as to Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey, demanding the immediate suspension of the @khamenei_ir Twitter account. Click here to see a copy of our complaint.

This is no mere technical legal game: hate speech on Twitter and other social media platforms has been the indirect, direct or proximate cause of numerous hate crimes, including deaths and injuries to American Jews. Recent examples include: five people stabbed during a Hanukkah celebration in Monsey, New York, four killed in a shooting at a Jersey City grocery store, and a shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue that left 11 dead. Each event was either directly preceded or immediately followed by hate speech on social media platforms, in form and substance similar to that of Khamenei’s communications on Twitter.

By giving Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei a platform, Twitter shoulders responsibility for the violence he incites against millions of Israelis and against Jews throughout the world. Last week, in response to social pressure, Twitter started putting warnings on posts from U.S. President Donald J. Trump, based on the possibility the posts may contain false or misleading information, in Twitter’s opinion. Surely one of the world’s most brutal dictators requires at least the same degree of scrutiny.

Did Palestinians Pressure AP to Fire a Veteran Video Journalist?

1
The Associated Press fired a veteran Palestinian cameraman following "complaints" from the Palestinian Authority.

Eyad Hamad, who has worked for the AP for 20 years, had launched a campaign calling on the PA security forces to release another Palestinian journalist who was arrested and reportedly beaten while in custody.

2
After a brief lull in attacks, Iranian militias in the eastern Syrian town of Raqqa were hit by an airstrike. Early reports didn't indicate the nature of the location, the number of casualties, or whether Israel might have been involved.

3
A US-based BDS group sparked outrage by trying to associate Israel with the death of George Floyd. Floyd was killed by a Minneapolis police officer in an incident that was filmed and triggered riots in a number of US cities..
4
The International Criminal Court asked the PA to clarify whether the Oslo Accords still stand. The status of the agreement, which Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas has threatened to declare nullified, will impact the court's decision on whether it has jurisdiction to investigate alleged Israeli "war crimes" in the West Bank.

According to Haaretz, "The request could prove problematic for the PA, as it would have to break down exactly which clauses remain in effect and what it considers to be no longer valid."

5
Antisemitism Watch: Outraged Jews have accused the German magazine Spiegel of antisemitism against a reporter. Antisemitic crimes in Germany and Austria have risen to worrisome levels.

It turns out an antisemitic cartoon tweeted by the Chinese embassy in Paris originated with websites linked to Holocaust deniers and white supremacists.

Why are media giants helping brutal dictators, people who are responsible for some of the worst crimes against humanity?


The media has fundamentally changed over the last decade. More than ever, people are getting their news via social media. And social media giants like Twitter are directly responsible for the spread of poisonous hate, conspiracy theories, and calls to violence. By giving Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei a platform, Twitter shoulders responsibility for the violence he incites against millions of Israelis.


HonestReporting has filed a legal complaint with the US Department of Justice and sent a copy to Elan Carr, the US Special Envoy for Monitoring and Combating anti-Semitism, as well as to Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey, demanding the immediate suspension of Khamenei’s account. Read the letter. And watch the end of the video for instructions on how to report Khamenei’s account to Twitter to be removed.

How to Criticize Israel Without Being Antisemitic
BY GUESTPOST  FEBRUARY 14, 2019


by Emanuel Miller and Shoshanna Keats Jaskoll


In recent years, Jews have increasingly found themselves at the center of political debates in America and Britain, often in relation to Israel and Jews’ connections to Israel.


While criticism of Israel and advocacy for Israel is not inherently antisemitic, much of it departs from the realm of fair comment and crosses the boundary into antisemitism. But, when this is pointed out, Jews are often accused of ‘playing the antisemitism card’. This makes light of bigotry, and undermines the ability to separate between legitimate criticism and illegitimate smears. In the absence of a single universally accepted definition of antisemitism, perhaps this list of things to remember will help people who want to fairly criticize Israel without falling into antisemitic canards or tropes.


1. Israel, and Israelis, exist
Israel is not a theoretical model; there are real people involved. Many of us desperately want peace and security. Whatever we say or believe, our human rights are not conditional. We aren’t an abstract idea, don’t suggest putting thousands or millions of real lives at risk.


2. Jews are not the same as Israel
Jews have a wide range of opinions, and many Jews around the world aren’t really aware of what’s going on in Israel. If individual or Catholics in general shouldn’t be attacked for the actions or positions of the Vatican, and if most people agree that Muslims should not held responsible for terrorism, then Jews should not be conflated with Israel. Don’t blame “Jews” for Israeli policies you don’t like.


3. Criticize specific policies
Vague assertions of Israeli control or evildoing echo centuries of vague assertions of Jewish control and mendaciousness. Both are smears, putting Jews and Israelis on the defensive against pernicious claims that are hard to pin down. If you want to honestly criticize Israel, do so by addressing specific issues and acts.
 


4. Make a fair attempt to understand Israeli policies
If you have an issue with Israeli policy, take the time to understand it and why it was implemented. For example, Israel’s security barrier. Where is it? Why was it placed there? What legal processes did it go through? What were the results on both sides?


5. Speak from a place of knowledge, accuracy and context
Whether Israel or another topic, you should never debate when unfamiliar with the basics. Take a moment to look up what’s going on, read a wide variety of sources, understand different perspectives, and make sure you get your facts right. Check out the history – it’s rarely one-sided. When you speak from ignorance you make grave errors and things seem overly simple.


6. Work towards solutions, not Israel’s destruction
If you seek to avoid claims of being antisemitic, avoid advocating for the destruction of the state home to the world’s largest population of Jews. (Refer to tip #1.) Determine whether your words feed into the incessant blaming of Israel or unreasonable demands that Israelis put themselves at risk, or whether they help advance the cause of peace by suggesting just solutions and realistic changes.


7. Recognize the conflict is not one-sided
Nothing is black and white. Imagining one party to be uniformly evil and the other as helpless victims is simplistic and unhelpful. Both Israelis and Palestinians have experienced pain. Both desire self determination. Wanting peace and security for Palestinians shouldn’t negate wanting it for Israelis Even if you truly believe that Israel is responsible for the situation, acting as if Israelis have no legitimate concerns and fears denies reality and characterizes Israelis as unreasonable, uniformly warmongering, and feeds into concerted attempts to destroy Israel.


8. Avoid known racist tropes when speaking of Israel or Jews
Words such as hypnotized, cabal, Jewish money, globalists, and many more have long been used to discredit Jews. Avoid them. If, for example, you wish to talk about Jewish influence on politics through organisations like AIPAC, carefully appraise your use of language and consider how much influence AIPAC really has compared to other organisations. (Hint: AIPAC’s “Jewish money” is only the second-biggest pro-Israel lobby in America. The biggest is actually CUFI, a Christian organization.)


9. Recognize Jewish indigeneity to the land.
Jews come from Judea. They lived in Israel for thousands of years. Denying the connection between Jews and Israel is antisemitism.


10. Don’t blame Israel for the world’s ills
If you’re tempted to blame the world’s ills on Israel, you’re exhibiting not only a lack of knowledge of world affairs, but demonstrable antisemitism. Portraying Israel as the cause of all that’s wrong in the world doesn’t lend itself to open, constructive debate.


In conclusion, it’s easy to criticize Israel without being antisemitic.  Focus on policy. Commit to accuracy. Include context. Eschew superficial chants. If you find that too hard, well, you may just be an antisemite.

Are Gaza Terror Balloons Returning?

1
Palestinians in Gaza launched terror balloons yesterday, ending a months-long respite. Terror groups warned that Israel has 72 hours to send medical supplies to Gaza or they would make life "hell" for Israeli communities near the border.

It's not clear that the terror groups are prepared to risk an escalation while keeping COVID-19 under control. Gaza recorded its first coronavirus fatality on Saturday while the number of cases stands at 55.

The incendiary and explosive balloons and kites have caused all kinds of environmental, agricultural and financial damage, but tapered off in February when Israel and Hamas reached an understanding.

2
Amid US pressure, a Chinese firm lost a contract to build the world's largest desalination plant in Israel.

The Sorek-2 facility, to be built in a sensitive location near the Palmachim Air Base and the Soreq Nuclear Research Center, is due to be completed in 2023.

A Palestinian soccer player who has represented the Palestinian national team in dozens of international games has been told that he is no longer in the squad after joining an Israeli team ahead of next season.

PA Rejects UAE's Corona Aid Delivered Via Israel

1
The Palestinian Authority refused to accept COVID-19 medical aid from the United Arab Emirates because it had been delivered directly via Israel.

 

According to Palestinian reports cited by Bloomberg News, the PA "doesn’t want to serve as a bridge for the normalization of ties between the UAE and Israel."

2
Hackers vandalized dozens of Israeli web sites today with the words of "The countdown to Israel's destruction has begun" along with images of Israeli cities in ruins.

2
Palestinians are highly skeptical of Mahmoud Abbas' latest threats to cancel security cooperation with Israel.

3
For the first time known, a commercial plane flying direct from the United Arab Emirates landed at Ben Gurion Airport yesterday. The UAE-based Etihad Airways was carrying medical aid for the Palestinians. Israel and the UAE do not have formal diplomatic ties.

4

Was Israel Behind Major Cyberattack on Iranian Port Facility?

1
There's a lot of buzz over a Washington Post scoop that Israel was apparently responsible for a highly accurate and disruptive cyberattack on Iran's newest port terminal.

 

I say "apparently" because the report is based on anonymous sources and no evidence is offered. The attributed motive is certainly plausible: Retaliation for a recent Iranian cyberattack on Israeli water infrastructure.

Israel's Largest Gov't Sworn In After Weekend Delay

1
With festivities muted by health restrictions and delayed over the weekend by disgruntled Likud MKs, Israel's new government was sworn in this afternoon. It features 34 cabinet ministers and will later expand to 36. Throw in 16 deputy ministers and this is easily Israel's largest government ever.

 

In 18 months, certain cabinet roles will be reshuffled when Benny Gantz rotates into the position of prime minister. But for now, Benjamin Netanyahu will continue as PM, while Gantz will serve as Defense Minister and assume the newly-created title of Alternate Prime Minister.

 

Other names to expect to see more of in the news are Gabi Ashkenazi (Minister of Foreign Affairs), Orit Farkash-Hacohen (Minister of Strategic Affairs) and Gilad Erdan (Ambassador to both the US and the UN).

2
The tomb of Mordechai and Esther in Iran was set ablaze according to a number of reports cited by the Daily Mail. The extent of damage to the shrine, located in the northwestern city of Hamadan is not known.

 

Earlier this year, members of the Basij paramilitary militia threatened to raze the holy site and establish a Palestinian consulate in its place. 

 

3
China's ambassador to Israel was found dead in his Herzliya home today. Police investigators believe 57-year-old Du Wei died of a heart attack. The death comes at an especially senstive moment for Israeli-Chinese relations:

 

"Wei's death comes one week after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited Israel in what seemed to be an attempt to convince the government to limit Chinese investments."

4
The IDF thwarted a terror attack in Jerusalem after ambushing three Palestinian suspects.

5
Germany criminalized the burning of foreign flags. Per the New York Times, this "was in response to a 2017 anti-Israel rally held on the streets of Berlin, the German capital, where the police watched as protesters burned Israeli flags."

6
Antisemitism Watch: State lawmakers passed legislation barring Missouri from doing business with companies that boycott Israel. The bill heads over to Gov. Mike Parson. (Related reading: Boycotting Israel: Is it Protected Free Speech?)

 

George Washington University stands by the appointment of an interim dean who backs the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign (BDS).

 

"A regional government in Spain hired an organization that is widely regarded as anti-Semitic to train teachers on how to combat racism."

The 94-Year-Old Miracle
Humans of Judaism shared this amazing video from Good News Movement.

“94-year-old Jack Holzberg survived the Holocaust and he survived COVID-19. He was at NY Presbyterian Cornell Weil and then spent a follow up week at Care One in Whippany, NJ, where he was discharged yesterday—- they rolled out the red carpet for him!


His granddaughter Erica Wasserman tells Good News Movement, ‘he is like the Mayor because everyone loves him!’ and she said, ‘he personifies strength and grace.’ He is delighted to see his wife of 67 years, his 2 sons, 4 grandchildren, and 5 great grandchildren after weeks of being apart.”

Remember to Share the Good News
During this pandemic, there has been a lot of darkness. It seems that the world is sharing more bad news than good news. That is why it is so important to share the good news as well. It is important to count our blessings. We may not know this Holocaust survivor personally, but hearing about recoveries like Jack Holzberg’s revives the lost hope that so many have felt. It gives us a bit of light in all the darkness.

NYT Social Media Post: Israeli Soldier Killed by “Rock”
BY EMANUEL MILLER  MAY 12, 2020
Mere days after the New York Times published a piece about life-saving efforts in the fight against COVID-19 by Israeli army experts which opened by saying that “The Israeli Defense Ministry’s research-and-development arm is best known for pioneering cutting-edge ways to kill people and blow things up,” the Times has botched another lead and social media post.

Despite coming under intense scrutiny, the journalist in question, David Halbfinger, described the killing of an Israeli soldier this morning as follows:

“A 21-year-old Israeli soldier was killed early Tuesday when he was struck in the head by a heavy rock as his unit was completing a nighttime arrest mission in a Palestinian village near Jenin, in the northern West Bank, the army said.”

The sentence was copied in full by The Times’ social media staff, who used it as the text to accompany social media posts on Twitter and Facebook, further amplifying the effect.

Pray tell, @NYTimes, how was this soldier "struck in the head by a heavy rock?"
Should readers not be told how it was that the rock was flying through the air? Why the passive voice?

Journalists have a responsibility to accurately, fairly report events. Reporters have a duty to share all the facts. Rocks don’t hit people by themselves, just as car don’t drive into people of their own volition.

Not directly and clearly referring to this as a lethally violent act is inexcusable from reporters of any level, certainly from journalists working for a newspaper of The New York Times’ standing. The rock didn’t simply strike the soldier of its own volition. It was thrown from a height and struck the soldier with great force. Journalists didn’t write “Twin Towers implode after planes collide with World Trade Center.”  Reporters don’t say “Man dead with knife in heart.” This was a deliberate act, and it should be referred to as such.

To be sure, reporters may claim with some justification that they can only mention what is known. In this case, it is known that a soldier died after being hit by a rock. The identity of the assailant is not yet known. But that would be to miss the bigger picture: as the lead was already written in the “he said, she said” format, in which journalists prefer to describe events through the words of organizations and individuals, the standard and professional journalistic practice would be to include the IDF’s assertion that this particular rock was thrown by one of a gang of Palestinian youth. Why did Halbfinger deem this not worthy of mention?

With two such lapses occurring within the space of a few days, it’s clear that journalists need to take more care than ever before in writing their lead paragraphs. Firstly because these are the very first sentences of any article, as thus read by far more viewers than the last few paragraphs, which only a small percentage will read. And secondly because these sentences are often candidates for being copied into social media posts, whereupon they take on a status similar to headlines: They are seen by many, many more people and therefore are of greater consequence and impact than the rest of the article.

One headline, one lead paragraph, one social media post has limited impact, but enough of them in a row begin to form the public understanding of the situation as a whole. In this case the message many readers will receive is that Israel is a violent actor, and when Israeli soldiers die it is because of magical rocks that were thrown by… nobody.

Israeli soldier killed in rock-throwing attack during arrest raid

1
An Israeli soldier was killed in the West Bank early Tuesday morning after being hit in the head by a large rock thrown by a Palestinian from a nearby rooftop. Sgt. First Class Amit Ben-Yigal was part of a unit carrying out a series of four arrests near the village of Yabed, west of Jenin. As the troops left the village on foot after arresting the suspects, a group of some 10 Palestinian youths began throwing rocks at them.

This year, he said, the COVID-19 pandemic is fueling anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.

3
Israeli prosecutors have indicted a 20-year-old Palestinian man on terror charges for allegedly stabbing an Israeli woman in the central city of Kfar Saba on Memorial Day last month. The woman, 62, was admitted to Kfar Saba’s Meir Medical Center in moderate-to-serious condition, the MDA ambulance service said.

US Says Soon Ready to Recognize Israeli Sovereignty in Parts of West Bank

1
Before the US recognizes Israeli annexation of any parts of the West Bank, Benjamin Netanyahu must first offer to negotiate with PA chief Mahmoud Abbas the creation of a Palestinian state.

 

In separate interviews with the Jerusalem Post and Israel HaYom, US Ambassador David Friedman said Washington is ready to recognize Israeli sovereignty in areas of the West Bank in the coming weeks.

A Swiss diplomat has joined German and Egyptian officials trying to mediate a Hamas-Israel prisoner swap.

"'The deaths brought about by the influenza pandemic of 1918-1920 profoundly shaped German society going forward,' Blickle wrote in the paper."

Israel Mulls Response to Iran Cyberattack on Water Facilities

1
Jerusalem is weighing a response to an Iranian hacking attack on Israeli water and sewage facilities. Per Israeli media reports, the April attack on computers managing the infrastructure "did minimal damage, though problems were reported at some facilities in local councils."

2
Palestinian Prime Ministe Mohammad Shtayyeh instructed West Bank banks to suspend plans to close the accounts of Palestinians receiving terror stipends from the PA. New Israeli sanctions on banks processing transactions from the PA "Martyrs Fund" went into effect.

 

Meanwhile, per largely overlooked Israeli media reports, this weekend, Israel’s Finance Ministry will return the deducted tax revenues to the PA in the form of an NIS 800 million ($228 million) loan. It appears that this loan was a political decision intended to keep financially-strapped PA afloat and not related to the banking sanctions.

3
Despite opposition from both Israel and the US State Department, the Pentagon is considering withdrawing American soldiers from a multi-national peacekeeping force in the Sinai.

 

According to the Wall St. Journal (click via Twitter), Secretary of Defense Mike Esper doesn't believe the deployment of is the best use of resources and not worth the risk to the 400 American personnel stationed in the northern Sinai.

 

The report suggested that the presence of the international monitors inhibits Egypt's battle against the Sinai's Islamic insurgents. More at the Times of Israel.

Corona and the IDF’s ‘Cutting-Edge Ways of Killing People’
BY PESACH BENSON  MAY 9, 2020
Corona New York Times
Even when the Israel rolls up its sleeves to come up with innovative ways to fight the coronavirus pandemic, it can’t get a fair shake from the New York Times.

In a roundup of what the start-up nation’s entrepreneurs and defense industry are doing in  areas such as testing,  tracking and telemedicine, bureau chief David Halbfinger leads off with this appallingly disparaging sentence:

The Israeli Defense Ministry’s research-and-development arm is best known for pioneering cutting-edge ways to kill people and blow things up, with stealth tanks and sniper drones among its more lethal recent projects.

The NYT describes how one company is making strides in using audio technology and artificial intelligence to analyze breathing patterns that might identify indicators of Covid-19.  Another company is developing a system to to let  infectious-disease nurses “instantly determine who else needs to be quarantined when a hospital worker tests positive.” Robots are being adapted to allow doctors to monitor and treat patients remotely, without exposing medical staff. Hopefully, these and the other efforts referred to in the story will help beat back the corona crisis.

But the Times trivializes this research and development. Halbfinger and the editors think this is a  profile of James Bond’s gadget guy, Q.

Memo to the Times: save the opinionizing for the op-ed pages.

The Meaning of IDF Tech Advancements
But there’s another insidious aspect to this lead sentence.

It reinforces the false notion of the IDF as akin to the Star Wars Death Star, bringing vast technological might to bear against ragtag bunch of Palestinians.

At the risk of spoiling the narrative spun by the Times, Israel’s “cutting-edge ways to kill people” were actually developed to lower the risk of collateral damage to Palestinian civilians.

Regarding the sniper drones, the Times linked to an article by Discover. Most people don’t bother read those linked stories. Did Halbfinger or his editors?

By comparison, Duke Robotics’ sniper drone, called TIKAD, is designed to precisely target individual enemies in crowded city environments. It’s also meant to handle dangerous situations that might ordinarily require human soldiers to clear a sniper or nest of insurgents from a building . . .

An armed sniper drone capable of taking out a single enemy without collateral damage could prove invaluable in situations where enemies have occupied a building that may also contain civilian families.
Related reading: Israel’s Disproportionate Civil Defense

Technology for detecting underground tunnels, the low-yield bombs the Air Force uses for “roof-knocking” to scare Palestinians away from targeted buildings, these are all used to protect lives — Israeli and Palestinian.

But there’s one final implication to this lead sentence, which is probably what offends Israel and its supporters the most.

No matter what the New York Times says, Israel has no reason to apologize for developing the technology it needs to defend itself.
