Antisemitic Democrats Denounce Peace HISTORIC Deal Between Israel and the UAE
By Geller Report Staff - on August 14, 2020
ISRAEL
No less of a liberal than Thomas Friedman of the Times writes that for once he agrees with Mr. Trump’s assessment — that the agreement, under which the UAE will establish full diplomatic relations with the Jewish state, is “HUGE.” He calls it a “geopolitical earthquake.”

But not the Democrat party of course, and certainly not the jihad wing of it.  That is because peace has never been the objective of the “Palestinians” and the pro-Palestinian Left. It has always been about vilifying, deligitmizing, isolating, and destroying the worlds only Jewish state. And the fact that Obama’s former Deputy National Security Advisor publicly denounced this deal speaks volumes. It is another example of how virulently anti-Israel the Obama Administration was. By the way, Bahrain could soon be the next Gulf nation to follow the UAE by signing a peace deal with Israel. Today was a massive defeat for the BDS Movement.

Leftists Denounce Peace Deal Between Israel and the UAE

By Israelly Cool, August 13, 2020

I am sure you’ve already heard the news: Israel and the United Arab Emirates reached a historic agreement today to set up full diplomatic relations between the two countries.

You’d think those on the Left would welcome a peace treaty, right?
Just kidding – I am sure you all know better than that.
They hate it.
Here are some of the reactions:
Rashida Tlaib
IfNotNow

Yonah Lieberman, co-founder of IfNotNow

Ben Rhodes, former Deputy National Security Advisor under President Barack Obama
Code Pink
August 13, 2020 — Peace group CODEPINK denounces the “historic peace deal” announced today that normalizes relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in exchange for Israel suspending plans to formally annex the West Bank. “We are not fooled by this fake diplomacy, which is nothing more than a way to maintain Israel’s status quo of land theft, home demolitions, arbitrary extrajudicial killings, apartheid laws, and other abuses of Palestinian rights,” said CODEPINK national co-director Ariel Gold. “Annexation is a daily reality on the ground. By normalizing relations with Israel without any gains for Palestinians, the UAE is pledging complicity with Israel’s violations of international law and Palestinian human rights.”

The agreement between the UAE and Israel — facilitated by the Trump administration — comes on the heels of Trump moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, recognizing the Golan Heights as Israeli territory, and creating a so-called peace plan with no Palestinian participation or input. It also takes place within the context of the UAE, along with Saudi Arabia, participating in a war in Yemen so brutal that it turned Yemen into the worst humanitarian crisis on the planet. Moreover, it must be seen in the context of the ongoing hostilities by all three countries with Iran and Trump’s failed policy of “maximum pressure” that was designed to force Iran back to the negotiating table.

“The ‘historic deal’ with the UAE and Israel does not move the Middle East any closer to peace,” said CODEPINK co-founder Medea Benjamin. “On the contrary. It strengthens the Israel-US-Gulf alliance against Iran, which will further inflame tensions and cause more death and suffering, while maintaining Israel’s status quo of occupation and apartheid.”

The UAE had previously held a position consistent with public opinion in Gulf and Middle East countries that the acceptance of formal diplomatic relations with Israel should only take place in exchange for a just peace and in accordance with international law. The UAE’s change from supporting Palestinian dignity and freedom to supporting Israel’s never-ending occupation cements the UAE’s alliance with the Trump administration, which allows the country to purchase weapons that are used against civilians in Yemen. UAE Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed is a shrewd player in the Middle East, a dictator who uses his country’s military and financial resources to thwart moves towards democracy and respect for human rights.

The fact that this agreement between two Middle East countries was first announced thousands of miles away in Washington DC shows how it is more about improving Netanyahu’s battered image in Israel and shoring up Trump’s slumping electoral campaign than bringing peace to the Middle East. It also shows the interests of Netanyahu and bin Zayed in keeping Trump in the White House. To add insult to injury, newly appointed Israeli ambassador to the U.S. Gilad Erdan said today that Netanyahu has promised him that annexation is not in fact off the table.

The normalization of relations between the UAE and Israel, facilitated by the U.S., serves to prop up three repressive leaders — Trump, Netanyahu, and bin Zayed — and will cause further harm to Palestinians. It is both a shame and a sham.

CODEPINK Middle East Director Ariel Gold is available for interviews.

Leftist journo Lisa Goldman


It’s unanimous: the socialist Left hates peace.

They spent months talking about how awful “annexation” would be but they are not celebrating it getting off the table – because the price to be paid is a peace agreement between Israel and a major Arab country.

They talk about how important negotiations and diplomacy are for Iran but they are dead-set agaist negotiations and diplomacy between Israel and the UAE.

They say they are anti-war, but an agreement that makes another Arab-Israeli war virtually unthinkable gets nothing but condemnation.

They say that this agreement will hurt Palestinians, but they cannot quite say exactly why.

Turkey: President Erdogan threatens to suspend diplomatic ties with UAE over deal with Israel
By Pamela Geller - on August 14, 2020
TURKEY
There’s nothing a wannabe caliph hates more than peace. Jihad today, yesterday, tomorrow…. forever.

And Islamic Jew-hatred is a central tenet of Islam.

Erdogan threatens to suspend diplomatic ties with UAE over deal with Israel
We could withdraw our ambassador,’ Turkish president tell reporters of potential response

By: i24, August 13, 2020:

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday that Turkey could suspend diplomatic relations with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) after the announcement of a landmark deal between Israel and the Gulf state.

“I gave an order to the foreign minister. I said we could suspend diplomatic relations with the Abu Dhabi administration or withdraw our ambassador,” Erdogan told reporters.

In the deal announced on Thursday by the US, Israel pledged to suspend its planned annexation of Palestinian lands in exchange for a normalization of ties with the UAE.

The Palestinian Authority (PA) on Thursday announced the “immediate” recall of its ambassador to the UAE in protest at the deal.

Erdogan, a pious Muslim, is a strong advocate of the Palestinians who has frequently criticized Israeli policies in the West Bank and Gaza.

Earlier this year he criticized Washington’s Middle East peace plan for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as “treason.”
“History will not forget those who betray the Palestinian people and sell out the Palestinian cause,” Erdogan’s spokesman, Ibrahim Kalin, tweeted on Friday. “Turkey will continue to stand by the Palestinian people.”

Annexation off as Israel and UAE normalise ties
Historic deal brokered with the US between the two countries includes agreement by Israel to not declare sovereignty over the West Bank

Israel and the United Arab Emirates on Thursday announced the “normalisation of relations” between them – with Israel agreeing not to declare sovereignty over the West Bank and Jordan Valley as a result.

The landmark moment, delivered in a joint statement together with the United States, heralds a new era of diplomatic and economic connections between Jerusalem and the Gulf states, and took political analysts by surprise.


The letter, posted online by Donald Trump, said Israel and the UAE “share a similar outlook regarding threats and opportunities in the region,” in reference to Iran-sponsored militias and regimes.

Get The Jewish News Daily Edition by email and never miss our top storiesFREE SIGN UP
Describing it as “an historic diplomatic breakthrough” that required “courage” from both Israel and Abu Dhabi, they said agreements would be signed in the coming week that would cover investment, tourism, direct flights, security, telecoms, energy, healthcare, the environment “and other areas of mutual benefit”.


It will also lead to the creation of an Emirati embassy in Israel and an Israeli embassy in Abu Dhabi – a first for both Gulf states and Jerusalem – while stipulating a halt on Israeli sovereignty claims, in order to pursue further bilateral relations.

“As a result of this historic breakthrough and at the request of President Trump with the support of the United Arab Emirates, Israel will now suspend declaring sovereignty over areas outlined in the President’s Vision for Peace and focus its efforts now on expanding ties with other countries in the Arab and Muslim world.”

ANALYSIS: US-Israel-UAE deal is a win-win-win. 

Board of Deputies’ president Marie van der Zyl said: “I warmly welcome the normalisation of ties between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. This is a historic development and an important step for prosperity, peace and security in the region.”

Israel and UAE recently raised eyebrows by agreeing to work together on medical efforts to combat the coronavirus, including a vaccine, and said they would “immediately expand and accelerate cooperation” in this area.

It remains to be seen whether other Sunni Muslim kingdoms in the Gulf will follow the UAE’s lead in normalising relations with Israel, but the three signatories said they were “confident that additional diplomatic breakthroughs” in the region.

Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, 59, has ruled the Emirate of Abu Dhabi since 2004 and been the region’s most active in facilitating external relations with countries such as France, Singapore and Russia, even mediating between Washington and Moscow, while in 2010 he hosted The Queen.

He is a driving force behind military efforts to remove the Iran-backed Houthi militia from Yemen and voiced anger at President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran.

Beirut blast: Explosion rocks city with many injured
4 minutes ago
Share this with Facebook Share this with Messenger Share this with Twitter Share this with Email Share

Media captionBeirut blast leaves extensive damage
A large blast has hit the Lebanese capital, Beirut, causing widespread damage and injuring many people, officials say.

It is not yet clear what caused the explosion in the port area of the city. Video posted online showed a large mushroom cloud and destroyed buildings.

Hospitals are said to be overwhelmed by casualties.

It comes at a sensitive time with the country's economic collapse reigniting old tensions.

Tensions are also high ahead of the verdict in a trial over the killing of ex-PM Rafik Hariri in 2005. A UN tribunal is due to issue its verdict in the trial of four suspects in the murder by car bomb of Hariri on Friday.

Follow our live updates
Lebanon's health minister, Hamad Hasan, has spoken of many injuries and extensive damage.

Reuters news agency quotes sources as saying 10 bodies have been pulled from the wreckage.

The cause of the explosion is still not known, but some reports suggest it may have been an accident. Lebanon's National News Agency reported a fire breaking out at what it called an explosives depot at the port.

Image copyrightREUTERS

Local media showed people trapped beneath rubble. A witness described the first explosion as deafening. Video footage showed wrecked cars and blast-damaged buildings.

The latest reports come amid political tension in Lebanon, with street demonstrations against the government's handling the worst economic crisis since the 1975-1990 civil war.

There has also been tension on the border with Israel, which said last week that it had thwarted an attempt by Hezbollah to infiltrate Israeli territory.

Lebanon: Why the country is in crisis
'Glass going down from all over the building'
Hadi Nasrallah, eyewitness speaking to the BBC

I saw the fire, but I didn't yet know there was going to be an explosion. We went inside. Suddenly I lost my hearing because apparently I was too close. I lost my hearing for a few seconds, I knew something was wrong.

And then suddenly the glass just shattered all over the car, the cars around us, the shops, the stores, the buildings. Just glass going down from all over the building.

Literally all over Beirut, people were calling each other from different areas kilometres away and they were experiencing the same thing: broken glass, buildings shaking, a loud explosion.

Actually we were shocked because usually when it happens, just one area will experience those happenings after an explosion, but this time it was all of Beirut, even areas outside of Beirut.

Shock and anxiety
By Sebastian Usher, BBC Arab affairs analyst

The videos and images not just of the massive cloud of smoke erupting in Beirut but the damage and devastation it's caused kilometres away have triggered a new wave of shock and anxiety in Lebanon, which is already teetering on the brink of a catastrophic economic collapse.

Just hours before the blast, anti-government protesters had been scuffling with the security forces outside the ministry of energy, demanding yet again accountability from the country's leaders.

There have been grave warnings of hunger in the streets or a reigniting of sectarian conflict if the economy worsens.

And the blast will remind many of the bomb that killed Rafik Hariri. The Lebanese will be hoping that this latest blast will remain a human tragedy - an accident - and not a premeditated

Outlook on US credit rating falls to ‘negative’…Dollar flashes warning sign
(ETH) – One of the world’s major credit-rating companies just fired a warning shot regarding the U.S.’s worsening public finances on Friday according to MSN as Fitch Ratings revised its outlook on the country’s credit score to negative from stable, citing a “deterioration in the U.S. public finances and the absence of a credible fiscal consolidation plan.”

The country’s ranking remains AAA. “High fiscal deficits and debt were already on a rising medium-term path even before the onset of the huge economic shock precipitated by the coronavirus,” Fitch said.

https://israelunwired.com/youre-about-to-see-one-of-gods-most-evident-miracles/

You’re about to see one of God’s most evident miracles
Jerusalem-2
Even watching video footage of this is chilling. Can you imagine being there in the moment? The entire thing was nothing short of miraculous.
That moment. Can you imagine if you witnessed it yourself? If you were in Israel when it happened? The Six Day War was miraculous. Especially this moment.
The Six Day War
As seen and told in this video, it was impossible not to feel G-d’s presence during the Six Day War. It was impossible not to recognize the miracles. The whole world witnessed it. Perhaps the most poignant comment was the point made that the State of Israel was born just 3 years after Auschwitz, but the soul of the State of Israel was born 19 years later in 1967.
It is chilling seeing the footage of recapturing the Old City of Jerusalem. After all the other miracles, regaining control over Jerusalem was another gift from G-d.
People talk about miracles that occurred in Biblical times and in the times of the great sages before us, but we must recognize that miracles take place all the time now as well.
Never Stop Thanking G-d
We have to continue thanking G-d, year after year, day after day, for the unbelievable miracles of 1967. We have to thank Him that Jerusalem came back into Jewish hands. You can never thank G-d too much.
Amazing job by the leadership of the Los Angeles communities. May we all celebrate in Jerusalem with all of the Jewish people when the Temple is rebuilt.

Dear Elaine,

[size=30]Update on extension of sovereignty/annexation[/size]

The much talked about 1 July date for Israel to extend sovereignty to/annex parts of the West Bank has now come and gone, and there is a sense that perhaps other events in Israel such as the second wave of Coronavirus, combined with pressure not to proceed from within the Israeli security and diplomatic establishment may mean that the controversial move does not go ahead.
 
We know that our network includes supporters of Israel with strong views on both sides of the debate about the Israeli proposals so we don’t take a collective position.
 
Here is some useful background information to help you understand the debate.
 
Our new podcast features BICOM CEO Richard Pater updating on the debate, me explaining why WBII opposes targeted sanctions as a response, and Natasha Hausdorff of UK Lawyers for Israel making the case that the move would not be illegal: https://soundcloud.com/user-202364896/episode-13-annexation
 
Here are two contrasting viewpoints from senior Israeli security figures:
 
Fathom and BICOM’s webinar with Maj.-Gen. (Res.) Amos Gilead, who vigorously opposes the proposals:
 
https://youtu.be/pVkdORAudZc
 
Brig.-Gen.Yossi Kuperwasser’s Open Letter to Boris Johnson “The unilateral application of Israeli sovereignty is necessary to move the peace process forward”:
 
https://fathomjournal.org/the-unilateral-application-of-israeli-sovereignty-is-necessary-to-move-the-peace-process-forward-an-open-letter-to-boris-johnson-from-yossi-kuperwasser/
 
A general overview of the issues is in this BICOM briefing: https://www.bicom.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Annexation-Briefing-June-2020-FINAL.pdf
 
And Calev Ben-Dor offers a comprehensive review of the Israeli debate and likely international reactions: https://fathomjournal.org/israels-dangerous-annexation-policy-why-now-and-what-next/?highlight=annexation
 
Whatever your views on whether Israel is right to consider doing this, we hope you will agree that sanctions are the wrong response, and sign our petition against them if you are not one of the nearly 5,000 people who have already signed it:

Best wishes,

How Der Spiegel Covered the Terrorist Car-Ramming In Jerusalem
By Hugh Fitzgerald - on July 17, 2020
"PALESTINIAN": JIHAD AGAINST JEWS
The German magazine Der Spiegel, which has a history of anti-Israel bias, in late June was at it again, publishing an article that appeared at first to blame the Israeli police for shooting an inoffensive Palestinian.
The story is here. The title of the Spiegel article read: “Israeli soldiers shoot Palestinian at border crossing.”
The title first fixes the meaning in the reader’s mind. In this case, we have Israeli soldiers inexplicably shooting at an inoffensive Palestinian, who appears to have done nothing. Indeed, he was, we assume, likely stopped at the border crossing. That is not what happened. But the title insidiously has done damage to our apprehension of the story.
But then comes more detail in the first two sentences of the story:

A video showed the alleged Palestinian terrorist Ahmad Mustafa Erekat ramming his car into Israeli soldiers. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said Erekat “drove his vehicle quickly towards the direction of a female border police officer who was injured lightly.”

An “alleged Palestinian terrorist”? Apparently aiming his speeding vehicle toward a group of police is not enough to make you a “terrorist.” For Der Spiegel, you are still only “alleged.”

Let’s try a rewrite. First, here’s a much better title: “Palestinian attempting to run down Israeli police is shot.” Isn’t that what happened? And doesn’t it leave a different impression in the reader’s mind than “Israeli soldiers shoot Palestinian at border crossing”? Then comes the first sentence: “A video showed the Palestinian terrorist Ahmad Mustafa Erekat ramming his car into Israeli soldiers.” Use of the word “alleged” is flatly wrong, and the word has been removed. Erekat did drive his car at the Israeli police. It’s on video. There’s no denying it. Der Spiegel is here no different from a reporter who writes that “George Floyd died from an alleged neck-on-knee hold.” There is nothing “alleged” about that, or about what Erekat did. He committed an obvious act of vehicular terrorism, like so many Palestinian terrorists before him.

…When pressed by the Post if Spiegel plans to correct the headline, [Anja zum Hingst, a Spiegel spokeswoman] said “the first sentence of the lead says that the Palestinian quickly approached an official.” She added that “the report is based on official Israeli information. Of course we don’t see anything anti-Israel or antisemitic in this.”

So Erekat “quickly approached an official”? Oh, that’s okay then. But what about the speeding car he was driving?

The report is “based on official Israeli information,” so according to Anja zum Hingst, it can’t be anti-Israel or antisemitic. Of course it can. The report in Der Spiegel is quite different from the “official Israeli information” in what it conveys, beginning with that title – “Israeli soldiers shoot Palestinian at border crossing” and that mention of an “alleged terrorist.”

A sample of other media outlets shows the role of the alleged Palestinian terrorist in the attack on Israeli soldiers. The AP titled its article “Palestinian Driver Killed In Alleged Attack On Israeli Guard,” and an Israeli media outlet used the headline “Driver tries to ram cops near Jerusalem, is shot and killed — police.”…

Though the AP title retains the word “alleged” — the attack was not “alleged” — it does supply the information, as do all the other headlines, about an attempted car-ramming: “Driver…attack on Israeli guard,” “Driver tries to ram cops,” “Palestinian driver who attempted car-ramming”

The Der Spiegel title (we only have that, and the first two sentences of the report) does suggest that for no reason at all Israeli police decided to open fire on an innocent Palestinian driver. “Kind of randomly killed.”

…In an article on the Mena-Watch website, the German journalist, Alex Feuerherdt, accused the Spiegel of “double standards” against the Jewish state. He wrote that “an editorially edited agency announcement appears on the Spiegel website with the headline: ‘Man is said to have stabbed police officers in Glasgow.”’

In reporting on that attack, in Scotland, Der Spiegel described the attack clearly in the headline. Had it taken place in Israel, one suspects the magazine would have written “Israeli police shoot man walking on road” leaving it for the reader to later on discover that the “man on road” had stabbed Israeli police officers.

…He [Feuerhdert] noted that necessity [required] providing context to the readers “about the terrorist means of the Palestinian car-ramming attacks,” adding “that shouldn’t be too much to ask.”

The report should have had this “accurate sequence of events” and information: 1. Palestinian drives car at top speed toward group of police officers, in car-ramming attack.
Driver hits a female police officer.
Driver is shot and killed by police.
Driver later discovered to be nephew of Saeb Erekat, official in the Palestinian Authority.
Car-ramming is a very common tactic used by terrorists against Israelis.
He [Feuerhdert] noted that necessity [required] providing context to the readers “about the terrorist means of the Palestinian car-ramming attacks,” adding “that shouldn’t be too much to ask.”

No, it shouldn’t. Readers of this report in Der Spiegel deserved to be reminded that Muslim terrorists have rammed cars and trucks into crowds of Infidels in Nice, Barcelona, Paris, London, Vienna, Berlin, Antwerp, Stockholm, Edmonton, and New York, as well as in dozens of places in Israel.

As Feuerhdert says, “that shouldn’t be too much to ask.” But apparently, for Der Spiegel, it was.

A High Court judge, Mr Justice Saini, has ruled that statements made by former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn on the Andrew Marr programme in September 2018 could be held to be defamatory of the pro-Israel activist Richard Millett. The ruling means that the case can proceed to a full libel trial.
The case refers to comments made by Mr Corbyn when Andrew Marr asked him about previous remarks he had made about “Zionists” who, he believed, “do not understand English irony”.
At a preliminary hearing on June 23, Mr Justice Saini was asked to determine whether the meaning of Mr Corbyn’s remarks on the show justified a libel action.

Andrew Marr had asked Mr Corbyn about a 2013 speech he had made at a meeting convened by the Palestinian Return Centre. There he had commented on an event in Parliament days earlier, where the guest speaker was the Palestinian ambassador to the UK, Manuel Hassassian.
At the PRC event Mr Corbyn complained that some present at the meeting in Parliament were “thankfully silent Zionists” who had behaved in a “very, very abusive manner” towards Mr Hassassian.
He added that not only did they “not understand history”, but that “they did not understand English irony, either”, despite having lived in Britain for a long time.
In his nine-part judgement, delivered on Friday morning, the judge said: “I find that the words complained of referred to Mr Millett; that they bore a meaning defamatory of Mr Millett as identified above; and I find that the allegations were factual”. He said it was reasonable to conclude that Mr Corbyn’s comments referred to Mr Millett, even though he was not identified by name.
Richard Millet
But he refused permission to Mr Millett to amend his claim against Mr Corbyn, by submitting an additional five articles in which the “English irony” speech was discussed.
In his judgement, Mr Justice Saini said, the original five articles referring to Mr Corbyn’s speech, all of which had appeared just a month before the Andrew Marr broadcast, would allow “a reasonable reader when watching the programme to conclude that Mr Millett was one of the ‘two people’ accused by Mr Corbyn. I do not consider memories would have faded. Overall I conclude that Mr Millett’s case has been made out on the basis of the original articles before me”.
Richard Millett’s lawyer, Mark Lewis, said: “The judge rejected the argument that Jeremy Corbyn was not referring to Richard Millett when he defended his ‘irony statement’ on the Andrew Marr programme. The case can now proceed to trial.

An explosion was heard in western Tehran on Thursday night, Reuters reported, citing the official IRIB news agency.

IRIB did not provide any additional information about the cause of the blast or possible casualties.

Electricity has been cut in the area of the explosion in suburbs west of Tehran, it reported.

There have been multiple explosions around military, nuclear and industrial facilities in the past week.

Two people were killed in an explosion at a factory in the south of Tehran on Tuesday.

Last Thursday, Iran announced that an "accident" had occurred at the Natanz nuclear complex in central Iran.

On Sunday, an unnamed Middle Eastern intelligence official with knowledge of the “accident” at Natanz told The New York Times that Israel was responsible for the attack, which he said was carried out using a powerful bomb.

Also last week, 19 people were killed in an explosion at a medical clinic in the north of Tehran, which an official said was caused by a gas leak.

On June 26, an explosion occurred east of Tehran near the Parchin military and weapons development base. In this incident, as well, authorities said the explosion was caused by a leak at a gas storage facility in an area outside the base

Government may face legal action over building of Westminster Shoah memorial
The British Government is facing legal action over its decision to build a national Holocaust memorial and learning centre in a Royal Park next to Parliament.

Proposed design of Westminster Holocaust Memorial in Victoria Tower Gardens
The government is facing legal action over its decision to build a national Holocaust memorial and learning centre in a Royal Park next to Parliament.
 
Secretary of State of Homes, Communities and Local Government Robert Jenrick MP is being challenged by the London Historic Parks and Gardens Trust over the process leading to a decision to build in Victoria Tower Gardens, beside the River Thames.
 
 
Jenrick’s department sought planning permission in January 2019 after former Prime Minister David Cameron’s Holocaust Commission, led by former Jewish Leadership Council chair Sir Mick Davis, recommended a national memorial somewhere central.

However a raft of heritage and environmental experts have warned that the damage and congestion that it could cause would outweigh the public benefit.
 
The Trust has played a leading role objecting to plans to build the memorial on “the last piece of publicly accessible land in central London”. The gardens are Grade II listed, sit alongside the Grade I listed Palace of Westminster, and lie partly within a UNESCO World Heritage Site, along with the world-famous Westminster Abbey.
 
Working with other campaign groups, including Save Victoria Tower Gardens and the Thorney Island Society, the Trust has argued that ministers should reconsider the memorial’s location, citing the “undesirable impact” of the chosen design.
 
A planning decision was due to be taken by Westminster Council, which said it was minded not to grant permission, until Jenrick’s department stepped in and took over.
 
Successive prime ministers, including Theresa May, has maintained that the memorial will be built in Victoria Towers Gardens, and the current Conservative Government even made support for the memorial a manifesto commitment.
 
Last month lawyers acting for the Trust argued that the environmental impact of the proposals, which could cause great damage to the root systems of the Park’s 180-year old plane trees, was not carrying sufficient weight in forthcoming call-in inquiry, which is scheduled to begin on 6 October.
 
“The Trust contends that the proposals… represent an exceptionally serious intrusion into a very important green public open space,” argued its lawyers.
 
“The Trust has made clear that that it regards a new Holocaust Memorial with Learning Centre is a good idea, but that Victoria Tower Gardens is the wrong place for what is now proposed. This view is shared with many other objectors, including Westminster City Council and Baroness Ruth Deech.”
 
Deech is one of several Jewish peers to have expressed her objections to the memorial proposals, arguing that the £100 million should be spent on Holocaust education instead.
 
While lawyers for the Trust do not object to the call-in, they have called for a Judicial Review, and the case will be heard by Mr Justice Holgate at the High Court of Justice, Queen’s Bench Division.

The last few weeks have seen a herd mentality take hold and misrepresentations about Israel abound. There has been fevered discussion over Israel’s proposed application of civilian law to parts of Area C in the West Bank. The move is consistently misrepresented as “annexation” and a “violation” of international law. Both allegations are false. The misconceptions betray a concerning level of ignorance. Most importantly, they stand in the way of any informed debate about the pros and the cons of the move.

The British Government has hinted that it may support punitive action against Israel if Jerusalem goes ahead with its West Bank annexation plans, saying such a move “could not go unanswered”.

In a stark speech to the United Nations’ Security Council last week, Middle East Minister James Cleverly said annexation “risks signalling Israeli rejection of the very solution Israel and the international community agreed in 1947”.

Hamza’s going home! Two-year-old Palestinian has life-saving heart op in Israel
Hamza Ali Mohammed will return to his family in Ramallah after spending two months on a breathing machine after open-heart surgery, supported by charity Save A Child's Heart
A two-year-old Palestinian boy who had a life-saving operation in Israel is set to return home after weeks spent recovering without his parents.

Hamza Ali Mohammed, who was born with potentially fatal congenital heart disease, had open-heart surgery at a hospital in Holon in February, while his parents waited anxiously in Ramallah, unable to travel due to the coronavirus lockdown.


The youngster was only kept alive with the help of a breathing machine as a medical team from the charity Save a Child’s Heart fought to save his life, and this week was finally set to return home after more than two months in critical condition.

While his mother and father had initially travelled to Israel with Hamza, they had returned to the Palestinian city for a short visit to see family and friends when strict lockdown conditions came into effect, rendering them unable to return to Holon.

“We all became his family,” said Dr Ahmed Amer, a paediatrician at Wolfson Medical Centre, where Hamza was treated in the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit and in the Paediatric Cardiology Unit.

“The whole medical team became his parents. The nurses did shifts to hold him and play with him. We did not leave him alone for a minute. A child his age and in his condition needs to be hugged and loved in order to recover and get stronger. That’s exactly what we gave him”.

Senior physician Dr Racheli Sion Sarid said the operation was extremely complicated.

“We tried to extubate Hamza a few times after surgery, but he had a hard time breathing by himself. We had to connect him to an ECMO (extracorporeal membrane oxygenation) machine. It kept him alive for a few weeks.”

Only after another operation in one of his lungs was Hamza able to begin breathing by himself again, and his parents were able to “see” his recovery with Amer sending them photos and updates daily.

“The first few times he saw them on video he began crying and it took us a long time to calm him down”, said Amer. “But he got used to it and we even celebrated his birthday a couple of weeks ago together with his parents on video. We brought a cake and balloons, and he was very happy.”

The toddler is now walking, laughing and playing, and soon he will be ready to return home to his family in the West Bank, prompting an emotional goodbye from the medics. “His story is amazing in many aspects” says Sarid. “It is a story of people, of human beings, helping each other regardless of their origin and religion.”

The secrets behind police protecting Jerusalem’s Old City
By Phil Schneider - June 24, 2020 5535 0
How do Israel’s police control violence in and around the Old City of Jerusalem? This is a very racially charged issue. The police are absolutely on the front-lines. There are radicalized Arabs who walk in narrow alleyways right next to the security forces. There is a constant state of tension – sometimes low-level, and sometimes, in a major way. Everybody is indeed a suspect. There have literally been thousands of attempted terror attacks in this area in the last few decades.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=5&v=mYwXBfvD1z8&feature=emb_logo

Outside of the walls is the key. Once the Old City has a terrorist inside of it’s alleyways, it can get very hairy to catch and apprehend a terrorist. So, modern technology is used to carefully observe all of the activity right outside the Old City walls. The officers have one goal – to save lives. They are not focused on the feelings of potential terrorists and on politically correct attitudes. They don’t focus on things like racially profiling. They just look for anything suspicious. This is the key to their success. Technology helps, tons of patience too. But the key is a clear goal to save lives.

As opposed to the progressive attitude that focuses on feelings and fairness of rioters, in Israel, the law and order norms that the police carry out are a given that are accepted as an absolute necessity. This is something that has been taken for granted in many countries. Without proper law and order, the social fabric of a society does indeed fall apart. Police work does require some understanding of delicate situations and does not always need to be handled by force. But as long as things like sanctuary cities and no-police zones are norms in certain areas, chaos will reign. Thank God, Israel is a country where everyone – including the Arabs – understands that chaos is the #1 enemy.

https://jewishnews.timesofisrael.com/maxine-peake-responds-to-row-over-claim-linking-george-floyd-death-to-israel/
‘I was inaccurate’, says Maxine Peake after linking George Floyd death to Israel
Actress says she was wrong but stops short of apology, day after sacking of Labour shadow minister Rebecca Long-Bailey for sharing her claim
Actress Maxine Peake has responded to backlash over previous comments appearing to link George Floyd’s killing to claims U.S. police had learned tactics from Israeli forces.

The Silk star drew criticism with her suggestion that “tactics used by the police in America, kneeling on George Floyd’s neck, that was learnt from seminars with Israeli secret services.”

Taking to Twitter on Thursday evening, she said she condemned racism and antisemitism. “I feel it’s important for me to clarify that, when talking to The Independent, I was inaccurate in my assumption of American Police training & its sources,” she said.

Get The Jewish News Daily Edition by email and never miss our top storiesFREE SIGN UP
“I find racism & antisemitism abhorrent & I in no way wished, nor intended, to add fodder to any views of the contrary,” she added.

She had earlier appeared to draw a connection between Floyd’s death and Israel during a wide-ranging interview with The Independent, which upon being shared approvingly by Labour’s Rebecca Long Bailey led to the MP’s sacking from the front-bench yesterday amid condemnations from Jewish groups.

A correction was added to the interview, informing the reader the piece was amended to “further clarify that the allegation that US police were taught tactics of ‘neck kneeling’ by Israeli secret services is unfounded.”

Listen to the JN PODCAST with Maureen Lipman, Tracy-Ann Oberman and Ashley Blaker 
A spokesperson for Labour leader Keir Starmer said the interview had “contained an antisemitic conspiracy theory.”

Some MPs, however, defended Long Bailey, including the former shadow chancellor, John McDonnell, who tweeted: “Throughout discussion of antisemitism it’s always been said criticism of practices of Israeli state is not antisemitic.”

Long Bailey later said sharing the piece had not been intended as an “endorsement of all aspects of the article.”

On Tuesday, Feb. 10, 1970, an El Al flight took off from Israel, headed for London. The plane was carrying 52 passengers and 11 crew members. Passengers included actress Hannah Meron and actor Assi Dayan, the son of then-Defense Minister Moshe Dayan. Meron and Dayan were going to audition for "Fiddler on the Roof."

At 12:30 the plane stopped in Munich for a connection, and 34 passengers got off. After a short wait in the terminal, the rest of the passengers got on a bus that would take them back to the aircraft. All of a sudden three Arab terrorists boarded the bus, armed with grenades and guns. They tried to hijack the vehicle. Captain Uri Cohen took down one of them, and the grenade the terrorist was holding exploded and blew off his hand. The German bus driver ignored the shouts not to allow the terrorist to board the bus. He opened the doors, and some of the passengers managed to get off, but then one of the terrorists threw a grenade inside the bus. Arie Katzenstein, 32, threw himself on the grenade – saving everyone else, but losing his own life. A total of 11 passengers were wounded, including Meron, who lost her left leg.

The three terrorists – two Jordanians and an Egyptian, all members of Dr. Issam Sartawi's Action Organization for the Liberation of Palestine – were captured by West Germany's security forces. They said they had planned to hijack the aircraft to Libya and demand that Israel release dozens of security prisoners in exchange for the hostages. The terrorists' trial was repeatedly postponed, supposedly for bureaucratic reasons, but really because Germany was in no rush to hold a trial that posed a security risk. All three were released in September 1970 as part of a deal between West Germany and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine that followed the hijacking of three passenger aircraft. Their release paved the way for the slaughter of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics.

A new study about the West German foreign ministry's attitude toward Israel from 1967-1979 exposes how West Germany buckled to Palestinian terrorism and the key role West German diplomacy played in the country adopting a kid-gloves policy toward the Palestinians.

Author of the study Dr. Remko Leemhuis, acting director of the Ramer Institute for German-Jewish Relations at the American Jewish Committee in Berlin, says that "the Palestinians learned very quickly that in Germany, like other countries, terrorism paid off, and when they extorted the West German government, it would give in."

"That conclusion clearly comes from conversations that representatives of the federal foreign ministry held with representatives of the Palestinians. Despite the Palestinians' friendly conduct, they made it clear that if the people they were talking to didn't do what the PLO wanted, the Palestinians couldn't promise that there wouldn't be more terrorist attacks on German soil. The German side was afraid of that.


Dr. Remko Leemhuis, acting director of the Ramer Institute for German-Jewish Relations at the American Jewish Committee in Berlin (Eldad Beck)
"What is horrifying to me is that the German Foreign Ministry never held any discussion about finding a firm response to the Palestinian extortion. No one said, 'We won't let terrorists or Palestinians extort us.' They threw up their hands and freed terrorists.

Leemhuis says Germany could have responded differently.

"I found a document from the American State Department that stated explicitly that the US could talk to the PLO, but for that to happen, it had to meet certain conditions, such as recognizing Israel's right to exist," he says.

When West Germany and Israel launched diplomatic relations in May 1965, most Arab countries severed ties with Bonn and approached East Germany, instead.

Leemhuis says that establishing relations with Israel was a "disaster" for West German foreign policy.

"Official talk about balanced relations with Israel and Arab states was a trick intended to hide the [German] foreign ministry's true position, which was biased in favor of the Arabs," he says.

"The Arabs controlled the most important resource for the world economy, oil, whereas the small Jewish state didn't have much to offer. What's more, Israel was a liberal democracy, and all the Arab states were dictatorships who were making daily threats to wipe it out. So even then, it wasn't really possible to treat the two sides equally."

Arab terrorism against Israel, via Palestinian organizations, increased after the Arab countries that fought Israel were trounced in the 1967 Six-Day War. The terrorist groups focused on attacks outside Israel's borders, hoping to shake up its international position. The first such attack on West German soil was perpetrated in September 1969, when terrorists threw a grenade at the Israeli Embassy in Bonn. Luckily, no one was wounded.

Five months later, the El Al plane was attacked in Munich, heralding the start of Palestinian air terrorism in Europe. Only 11 days after the attempted hijacking in Munich, a bomb exploded in the cargo hold of an Austrian airplane that took off from Frankfurt and was headed to Tel Aviv, with a stopover in Vienna. The pilots managed to land in Frankfurt and avoid a major disaster. Terrorists also sent a bomb through the German postal system that was supposed to be sent on an El Al flight. But the package was placed on a Swissair plane and detonated in Swiss airspace, killing 74 passengers and crew.

Three days later, Germany's ambassador to Jordan reported that one of his aides had met with Issam Sartawi. The ambassador wrote that he had approved the meeting so that Germany could "better assess the danger that Sartawi's organization posed to German citizens in Jordan."

Sartawi expressed regret at how the attempted hijacking in Munich had played out, but said that his organization had chosen West Germany because it was very "pro-Israeli" and stressed that the attack had been designed to force the West German public to re-think the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and that he could not guarantee that his group would not decide to buck his instructions and carry out more attacks there.

The embassy aide promised to take steps to ensure that the German media did not report attacks by Sartawi's organization "inappropriately" and did not spread suspicion of Arabs and Palestinians.

German diplomacy waved a white flag. Sartawi ended the meeting with a tempting offer, expressing his willingness to avoid more attacks on German soil and against German institutions if the three members of his group who were arrested in Munich were released.

A short while later, Israel's foreign minister, Abba Eban, paid his first official visit to West Germany. He urged his hosts to hold Arab governments accountable for their support for the PLO and its terrorist activity. A few days passed, and Germany's ambassador to Jordan met with King Hussein. According to a report he sent to the German Foreign Ministry, he did not devote a single word of the meeting to the fact that Jordan was hosting the terrorist organization that had attacked the El Al plane in Munich.

In July 1970, that same ambassador met with a senior official in the Fatah organization. Leemhuis is almost certain that the Fatah official was Ali Hassan Salameh, who would eventually become a leader of the Black September group, which murdered the Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics.


Ali Hassan Salameh
The ambassador reported that he had told Salameh that Germany had stopped all weapons shipments to Israel and that the Germany government, particularly then-Chancellor Willy Brandt, were consistently working toward a neutral German position in the Middle East and that the government wanted to show the Palestinians that it desired good relations with them.

Palestinian terrorist attacks were not limited to Germany. In July 1970, terrorists from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine hijacked an Olympic Airlines plane, demanding the release of seven terrorist imprisoned in Greece. Athens gave in. That September, the PFLP hijacked three more planes – TWA, Swissair, and Pan Am flights – to secure the release of terrorists. Two of the three hijacked planes were forced to land in Amman, as was a British plane that was hijacked later that month.

Terrorists were holding American, Israeli, German, and Swiss citizens hostage in Jordan. The separated the Jews from the rest of the passengers and demanded that terrorists imprisoned in Israel and in western Europe be released. The German government immediately signaled its willingness to meet their demands, and even pressured Israel to cooperate, sending a diplomat to meet in London with a representative of the World Jewish Congress, where he voiced concern that the deal did not include the Jewish and Israeli hostages.

Fearing a military mission to free the hostages, the terrorists moved them to various secret locations and blew up the aircraft. Attempts by the Red Cross to mediate failed, and the clock was ticking to a clash between the Jordanian army and the Black September group.

The German government decided to send the secretary-general of the ruling social-democratic party, Hans-Jurgen Wischnewski, a fervent supporter of the Algerian independence movement who had extensive connections in the Arab world, to Amman. Jerusalem saw him as pro-Arab. After a Red Cross delegation left Amman, Wischnewski met with Abu Maher Ghneim, one of the founders of the PFLP, who informed him that his group was willing to negotiate with each of the countries involved, separately.

Wischnewski urged Brandt to make an immediate announcement that Germany would be releasing the terrorists behind the Munich attack. Germany's ambassador to Jordan also kept up the pressure.

On Sept. 30 the terrorists were let out of Germany.

From 1968-1984, 48 of the Palestinian terrorist attacks in Europe were carried out on German soil. The deadliest was the slaughter of the Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics in 1972 by eight members of Black September.

The man responsible for the planning and execution of the attacks was the man Germany's ambassador had met within Jordan, Ali Hassan Salameh.

Then-director of the Mossad, Zvi Zamir, who had been sent to Germany to track the attempts to rescue the athletes, asked his German counterpart what the German authorities intended to do with the terrorists who remained alive, since the Palestinians could hijack a Lufthansa plane and force the Germans to free them. The head of Germany's spy agency said he couldn't guarantee that scenario wouldn't occur.

During the attack on the Olympic village, Brandt publicly criticized Arab nations, but his foreign minister, Walter Schell, rushed to clarify that the attack was "one instance" of terrorism for which the "governments of certain countries were not responsible."

The day after the murder of the Israeli athletes, Germany's ambassador to Egypt, Hans-Georg Stelzer, send a long letter to his superiors in which he recommended that Germany refrain from any harsh criticism of Arab countries, because they had no influence on acts of terrorism.

In a later message, Stelzer even asked that Germany show understanding of the terrorists: "Even if we must condemn the actions of the Munich terrorists, the Arab position must be understood … they see idealistic young people who were acting out of desperation at the crisis situation in their homeland."

Leemhuis cites the "coldness and lack of empathy" with which the German authorities responded to the Munich Olympics massacre.

"They said, 'Life goes on,' without any feeling for the significance of the attack and its historical importance to the Israelis. The documents don't show an ounce of any horror, or that any of the functionaries in the Foreign Ministry opposed the official approach and wanted to demand that the Palestinians be held responsible," he says.

"They [the Foreign Ministry] knew that Black September was part of the PLO, and that in contrast to Yasser Arafat's lies, the organization did not operate on its own. But none of that made any of the German diplomats pull away; it made them want to talk with the PLO, thinking that by doing so they could prevent terrorist attacks in Germany. That idea has guided all of [Germany's] contact with the PLO," Leemhuis observes. 

 Leemhuis discovered a document from October 1972, issued less than a month after the massacre, which clearly shows that the German Foreign Ministry knew about Black September's ties to Fatah and that the new terrorist organization was designed to provide camouflage that would allow Fatah to avoid responsibility for terrorist acts committed by its members.

"The Fatah leadership wants to avoid any harm to the esteem in which it is held, to its good name, and to its stature," the document reads.

The interior minister of Germany at the time, Hans-Dietrich Genscher, outlawed activity by Palestinian student activists and deported hundreds of illegal Arab residents, as well as ordering strict border checks for Arab citizens entering West Germany. But the Foreign Ministry opposed these steps and they were eventually canceled.

According to Leemhuis, "The Foreign Ministry wasn't worried about relations with Israel at all, just with the Arab image in West German media. There was no sense of guilt about the negligent developments that led to the deaths of nine athletes in the failed rescue attempt [two others were killed in the Olympic village itself]. The prevailing belief was that Germany had done everything correctly, no mistakes. Even Israel's response was relatively placating. Golda Meir was very careful in her criticism," he notes. (Meir was very close to Brandt and did not want to endanger his chances of re-election in November of that year).

It took little time for Zamir's prediction to be fulfilled. On Oct. 29, 1972, Palestinian terrorists indeed hijacked a Lufthansa flight that was en route to Frankfurt from Damascus, with planned stops in Beirut, Ankara, and Munich. The hijackers demanded that the three terrorists arrested after the murder of the Israeli athletes be freed. The West German government agreed that same day, and the three were flown to Libya. The terrorists let the hostages go.

Even today, some claim that the hijacking had been coordinated between the PLO and the German government as a way of allowing the Germans to avoid trying the terrorists in court. Leemhuis has found no confirmation of that theory, but says that in 2009, one of Brandt's close advisors told a German paper that he saw the idea as "legitimate."

The day the terrorists were released,   the director of the Middle East Desk in the German Foreign Ministry sent a telegram to the Israeli government which read, "In regard to the accusations that our government has given in to the Palestinian guerrilla fighters and is thereby encouraging more actions of this type, it should be said that the federal government cannot make a decision that would put the lives of the passengers and crew of the hijacked plane in danger."

The telegram ended with the observation: "These are the results of a conflict, and both sides have a responsibility to reach a solution."

Israel was outraged that the terrorists had been freed. Eban summoned the German ambassador to Israel for a rebuke, telling him that Germany had handed the terrorists a "great victory."

As this was unfolding, the Israeli ambassador to Germany, Elyashiv Ben-Horin, was summoned to a meeting with the German foreign minister, who told him that West Germany's policy on the war against terrorism had not changed, but that the government had no choice other than to release the terrorists.

Germany's capitulation paved the way for formal relations between West Germany and the PLO, which demanded a mission in the West German capital, to be housed in the offices of the Arab League.

The Palestinians also asked the Germans to help fund the PLO.  A telegram sent on Feb. 28, 1973 by Helmut Radius, head of the Middle East Department in the German Foreign Ministry, ordered the transfer of 50,000 marks to support the Wafa news agency, which disseminated Palestinian propaganda. Radius also issued instructions that the purpose of the funds be hidden to avoid diplomatic complications, although there is no confirmation that the money was actually transferred.

None of the German diplomatic correspondence made any mention of the Holocaust. According to Leemhuis, "historical responsibility did play any role in the German Foreign Ministry's position toward Israel. After the compensation agreement of 1952, the German diplomats said, 'That's it, the matter of the Holocaust is closed. We paid, and from this moment on, history will not play any part.'"

Leemhuis also points out anti-Semitic accusations made at the time that Israelis and Jews wanted to profit from the Holocaust, after Israeli diplomats made repeated references to Germany's history with the Jews.

"It shows the coldness that characterized German foreign policy, as well as the ignorance about the suffering of the survivors and about historical responsibility. It's chilling to see how soon after the Holocaust the German diplomats moved on, while stressing the historic trauma that the establishment of the state of Israel caused to the Arabs. In other words, history played a role as it met their needs," he says.

When Israel Hayom asks Leemhuis whether the fact that many West German diplomats lived Nazi Germany influenced this approach, he says that while he has not looked into the personal background of the diplomats, "when you read their anti-Semitic comments, it's obvious that the influence of the Nazi period played a role."

"The open anti-Semitism in the documents surprised me. The functionaries felt they could write these things, knowing that it wouldn't bother anyone. And who knows what they said about Jews and Israel in conversation … I was amazed that there was no objection to these positions. The Six-Day War, the attacks in Munich, the Yom Kippur War … none of these changed their thinking," he says.

PA Policeman: ‘Me and my Colleagues Want Israeli Annexation’
By David Sidman June 11, 2020 , 11:23 am
All who survive of all those nations that came up against Yerushalayim shall make a pilgrimage year by year to bow low to the King lord of Hosts and to observe the festival of Sukkot. Zechariah 14:16 (The Israel Bible:tm:)

Is a coup brewing in the Palestinian Authority?

Veteran journalist Tzvi Yehezkeli went undercover into various Arab villages throughout Judea and Samaria to find out how the village residents feel about Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s July plan to annex Jewish inhabited areas of the region.

Official data regarding ‘Palestinian’ sentiments of the plan, even if recorded, would likely be inaccurate as most PA citizens fear retribution should they openly call to live under Israeli rule. That’s why Yehezkeli, a fluent Arabic speaker, entered their villages posing as an Arab to hear their true sentiments. As the camera was mounted inside eyeglasses, the interviewees didn’t even know that they were being recorded.

One Arab he interviewed claims that 80% of his village wants an Israeli ID card while the other 20% secretly want it but won’t admit it. Another one in the Jordan Valley, upon realizing that the Annexation plan means that he and his village will get an Israeli ID card, he said that he’s “very happy” as is his entire village. In the Judean village of Husan, a man told Yehezkeli that everyone in his village wants to live under Israeli soverignty saying “of course I want, who wouldn’t want? Even Abu Mazen (Abbas) himself wants to.”

At one point, Yehezkeli interviewed a Palestinian policeman ‘M’, an apparent captain in the PA police force. When ‘M’ was asked if he would prefer to obtain Israeli citizenship, his response was “100%, Not just me, I have 60 men working under me.”

The policeman also revealed that Abbas today has far less influence than Arafat once did explaining that “back then, people didn’t know what’s going on. Today people understand the game” calling the Palestinian Authority “traitors and murderers.”

Giving an example ‘M’ recalled that “Abbas called on the us to go out and protest against the upcoming Annexation plan but everyone just ignored him.”

Regarding potential orders he may receive from the PA government to shoot up Jewish holy sites in a terrorist attack, the policeman explains that he will simply ignore the orders saying: “If they tell me for example to shoot Rachel’s tomb, I will tell them to first send the son of the head of the PA intelligence, Majid Faraj.”

Thousands of obscene anti-Jewish posts shared online, CST report warns
Reams of "easily accessible, extreme and violent" videos, memes and posts discovered across at least four social media platforms.

A new report into online extremism has warned that thousands of pieces of violent antisemitic material are being disseminated on social media.
The Community Security Trust (CST) sounded the alarm on reams of “easily accessible, extreme and violent” videos, memes and posts it said were discovered across at least four social media platforms.
The Jewish charity detailed its findings in its latest report entitled Hate Fuel: the hidden online world fuelling far right terror, which it said was shared with police, government and counter-extremism officials.

The document, seen by Jewish News, was not made public due to the extreme nature of the material it contains.
Social media posts found by the Jewish charity included material blaming the Hungarian-American philanthropist George Soros and the wider Jewish community for recent anti-racism protests around the world.
The CST said it produced the report amid concerns over the “quantity and spread” of the material, which it warned poses an urgent threat to Jewish communities.

Speaking to Channel 4 on Thursday, Neil Basu, head of Counter Terrorism Policing, voiced concerns about online radicalisation amid the lockdown.

“My professional instinct is to tell me that throughout all of Covid, one of my biggest fear is people have been locked down looking at nothing but their screens for over three months now, and there has been an increase in propaganda grievance narratives being twisted online to try and radicalise people who are vulnerable and people have never been more vulnerable,” he told the broadcaster.

Meanwhile, the Government’s adviser on extremism announced this week the launch of a legal review to determine whether current legislation adequately deals with hateful extremism. Sir Mark Rowley, the former head of UK counter-terror policing, will put forward proposals later this year.

Commemoration for fallen Jewish servicemen and women to take place online
Community urged to tune in to AJEX's virtual service on Sunday 28 June to mark National Armed Forces week
By JEWISH NEWS REPORTER
June 16, 2020, 12:08 pm  
Jewish Brigade
British Jews are being asked to join an online commemoration service to fallen Jewish servicemen and women next week in place of the usual in-person service at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire.

The Jewish Military Association (AJEX) will hold a virtual service on Sunday 28 June at 11am during National Armed Forces week, with a variety of online interviews and events in the days leading up to the ceremony.

This year is filled with notable anniversaries, including the 75th anniversary of VE day and VJ Day and the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, but the pandemic had meant that face-to-face events are impossible.

AJEX said it was “even more determined than ever” to gather together online from home to reflect on the contribution of those who served, as it launched its series interviewing both veterans and serving personnel from Sunday 21 June.

AJEX Patron Sir Malcolm Rifkind, a former defense secretary, praised the organisation for its work, saying: “The needs of the many veterans change over the years but the tireless work that AJEX delivers continues to assist them.”

 Rifkind will speak at the ceremony, together with Army Chaplain Rabbi Reuben Livingstone, AJEX chair Mike Bluestone, Board of Deputies’ president Marie Van der Zyl, as well as young students.

“When we heard the National Memorial Arboretum was closed, we knew we had to create a different kind of event,” said Bluestone. “We look forward to seeing the community coming together for this memorial week which is so vital to help us honour those who have fought for our freedom.”

Famous African Americans admit shocking facts about racism
By Phil Schneider - June 15, 2020 5373 0
Does racism exist in the United States? Or course – it exists in a country with hundreds of millions of people. Is it a major issue today? Well, actually, no. It is not a major issue in comparison to other issues that are much greater issues. For example, are personal responsibility and family values more important than issues of racism? Absolutely.ESTC
WATCH cnn https://israelunwired.com/famous-african-americans-admit-shocking-facts-about-racism/
The issues today among the young African American population is not systemic racism. This is what so many networks will speak about. But as Roman J. Israel explains, “They are not locking up the 7 year olds.” So, why is this the case? It is because of the breakdown of the family unit in the United States. Is this due to a breakdown of family values in the United States in general? Perhaps. In many big cities today, there are astoundingly high numbers of broken families. This is not due to systemic racism, but due to systemic family breakdown. It is not merely an issue among black people. It is an issue that crosses all races and colors.

The next time that someone says that the United States is a racist country, remember the following facts: The northern states in the United States fought against the Confederacy in order to remove slavery from the United States. This was led by a white president. The United States voted into law the Civil Rights Law in order to change the norms of disrespect and discrimination against black people. This was done by a majority of white voters in Congress and the Senate. Oh and yes, it was enforced by a majority of white men in the police departments across the United States. This had ramifications that brought up the norms of respect and openness to the entire world for black people.

And one more thing, Barack Obama was elected President of the United States – twice. When the African American population deals with their core issues that start in the home, then there won’t be any need for policemen and policewomen – many of whom are African American – to make sure that neighborhoods are not burned down and looted.

Company risks everything to create powerful pro-police ad
Amidst all the anti-police environment in America, the company Egard Watches put out a pro-police ad. It brings a sense of hope during all this chaos.
The way Americans are treating police officers is tragic. Those in the police force dedicate their lives to others. They risk their lives for others. And to be treated the way they are being treated is horrific.


Speak Truth - A message that needs to be heard
https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=2&v=efeVzpMtt1Q&feature=emb_logo
To Be Pro-Police, or not to be?


Since when did America become a place where you have to decide if you are pro-police or not? It is irrational to want to dismantle the police force!
Being a police officer can be frightening. You don’t know what or who you will encounter. Yet, these people still choose to join the force.
How dare Americans treat them like animals. How dare Americans want to defund these heroes. It is truly sickening.
A World Without Police Officers?
Who really wants to live in a world without police officers? Do you want to know what that would look like? Policemen and women keep communities safe. They respond to those in need. They are the good guys!


The world is so flipped right now it is frightening. Criminals are raised as heroes and heroes are treated like dirt; walked upon and spit on. It is a scary world we live in. And it will only be scarier without the men and women who have chosen a career to protect us. Don’t wait around to see what will happen in an America without the police force. It won’t be pretty.


Policemen give up their time, their energy, and sometimes their lives. They devote themselves to helping and protecting others. Have some of them made mistakes? Of course. Should some of them never have joined the police force to begin with? Definitely. But does that mean all policemen and women throughout America are bad people? If you think that, it is absolutely absurd. It dishonors those men and women who have dedicated their lives to others. The numbers and statistics do not show that policemen are bad or racist. Taking one horrific incident and blowing it out of proportion is wrong.

Settlements Minister Tzipi Hotovely said her ministry will start preparations for Ramat Trump to house 300 families
By JEWISH NEWS REPORTER
June 15, 2020, 9:11 am  1
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during an official ceremony of the unveiling of the sign of the new settlement, called 'Trump Heights', 
An Israeli cabinet minister has said the government approved plans to build a new settlement in the Israeli Golan Heights named after President Donald Trump.

Israel approves plan to name Golan settlement after President Trump
Settlements Minister Tzipi Hotovely, who is to take over as the next Israeli ambassador to the UK, wrote on Facebook that her ministry will start preparations for Ramat Trump, Hebrew for Trump Heights, to house 300 families.

Israel captured the Golan Heights from Syria in the 1967 Six Day War and annexed it in 1981.

Most of the international community considers the move, and Israeli settlements in the territory, illegal under international law.

LISTEN to the JN Podcast with Stephen Bush and Ron Arad  
But Mr Trump signed an executive order recognising the strategic mountainous plateau as Israeli territory in March 2019.

The move came during a visit to Washington by Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu just weeks before Israeli elections.

The decision, just one of several diplomatic moves benefiting Israel, was widely applauded there.
The Israeli government’s approval of the plan, which according to Israeli media will involve earmarking eight million shekels (2.3 million US dollars) for developing the town, advances a project announced by Mr Netanyahu last year with great pomp and fanfare.

Last June, Mr Netanyahu convened his Cabinet in the small hamlet of Qela for a vote on rebranding the community as a gesture of appreciation for the president’s recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.
The small town of Qela is home to under 300 people.

Its original neighbourhood of Bruchim, which will be rebranded as Trump Heights, is home to less than a dozen.
At a Cabinet meeting on Sunday, Mr Netanyahu said that Israel would “begin practical steps in establishing the community of Ramat Trump on the Golan Heights, Israel’s sovereignty over which was recognised by President Trump”.
Israel has built dozens of settlements in the Golan over the years, with an estimated 26,000 Jewish settlers living there as of 2019.
Roughly the same number of Arabs live there, most of them members of the Druze sect of Shiite Islam.

Palestinian “Expert”: “Israel is Building the Third Temple Under the Aqsa Mosque”
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz January 29, 2020 , 4:14 pm
In that day, I will set up again the fallen booth of David: I will mend its breaches and set up its ruins anew. I will build it firm as in the days of old,” Amos 9:11 (The Israel Bible™)

Thousands of Muslims pray in front of the Dome of the Rock on the compound known to Muslims as al-Haram al-Sharif and to Jews as Temple Mount during the second Friday of the holy month of Ramadan in Jerusalem’s Old City, June 26, 2015. (Photo: Suliman Khader/Flash90)

A Palestinian “expert” appeared on official PA television, repeating a libelous claim that has become the battle-cry of terrorists. The “expert” managed to fit several other false claims into his few minutes in the spotlight including misidentifying the Muslim building that stands on top of Solomon’s Temple.

Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), a media watchdog that focuses on Palestinian anti-Israel propaganda, reported on the Arabic language program that was broadcast last month on the official Palestinian television network. The program was an interview featuring Expert on international law Dr. Ibrahim Al-Rabi, who was described as an “expert on international law.”

Official PA TV reporter: “There is construction work taking place under the Al-Aqsa Mosque to build the alleged Temple of Solomon…”

Expert on international law Dr. Ibrahim Al-Rabi: “Regarding this [Western] wall that the Jews claim is the remains of the Temple of Solomon – it must be understood that UNESCO has said that this wall has no connection to Jews, but is rather an Islamic heritage. In other words, it is subject to Palestinian rule and the Jews have no right to it.”

Unfortunately, Dr. Al-Rabi’s claim concerning the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is accurate. UNESCO has indeed passed several resolutions claiming that there is no connection, historical or religious, between the Jewish people and their holiest site. 

Dr. Al-Rabi’s claim is, however, erroneous regarding a few points. The claim that the Temple Mount has any significance to Islam is inaccurate and deeply insulting to some branches of Islam. Jerusalem only took on any significance in Islam in the late 8th century when the Bedouin Muslims prevented the Damascus Muslims from making Haj (pilgrimage) to Mecca. As an alternative destination for Haj, the Damascus Muslims decided on Jerusalem, adding a Hadith (oral commentary) shifting the scene of Muhammad’s Night Journey to Jerusalem in order to justify their decision.

The source of the Muslim holiday of “Isra” (journey) and “Mi’raj” (ascension, literally ‘ladder’) and the entire Muslim claim to Jerusalem as a holy site is based on a story in the Quran. According to the Quran, Muhammad traveled from Saudi Arabia to “Al-Aqsa” (the far mosque).  From there, he ascended to Heaven, returning to Earth the next day. 
Dr. Al-Rabi is also mistaken about the Muslim structures on the Temple Mount. Al-Aqsa is the silver domed mosque on the southern end of the Temple Mount compound. The site of Solomon’s Temple is now covered by a shrine (not a mosque) with a gold dome, called Qubbat al-Sakhrah by the Arabs.

PMW described this claim of Israeli construction under the Temple Mount as “one of the most lethal recurring Palestinian Authority libels.”

“The PA regularly claims that Israel excavates under the Temple Mount, thereby endangering the Al-Aqsa Mosque,” PMW stated. “Many Palestinian terrorists who murdered Israelis have explained that they killed in defense of the Al-Aqsa Mosque…Palestinian Media Watch has documented the dissemination of this libel for more than a decade. Hamas too has repeated it for years.”

Molotov-throwing Muslim Lawyer in Brooklyn Was Intern for Soros-funded Anti-Israel Group
By Atlas Shrugs - on June 14, 2020
GEORGE SOROS: THE BLACK HAND
The black hand strikes again. It is no surprise that Urooj Rahman would be involved with Soros-funded leftist groups supporting the “Palestinian” jihad. The left and the global jihad are united in their hatred of the United States and Israel, and their determination to bring both down.

“Molotov-throwing Lawyer in Brooklyn Was Intern for Soros-funded Anti-Israel Group,” by Joshua Klein, Breitbart, June 12, 2020:
One of the two lawyers accused of trying to torch an NYPD cruiser during protests that engulfed Brooklyn over the weekend spent a summer in the West Bank as a fellow and intern with radical Palestinian activist organizations.

Two attorneys, Colinford Mattis, 32, and Urooj Rahman, 31, reportedly were caught attempting to distribute homemade molotov cocktail devices to protesters who were clashing with police near the 88th Precinct in Fort [sic].

“Rahman attempted to distribute Molotov cocktails to the witness and others so that those individuals could likewise use the incendiary devices in furtherance of more destruction and violence,” a witness was quoted as saying to authorities in a detention memo from federal prosecutors for the Eastern District of New York.

Rahman was captured in a photo obtained by the New York Daily News wearing a Palestinian keffiyeh on her face and holding a makeshift Molotov cocktail. The keffiyeh, a chequered black and white scarf, has become a symbol of Palestinian nationalism.

Rahman is a graduate from Fordham University law school. In 2014, she did a summer fellowship internship program at the Israel based Mada Al-Carmel’s Arab Center for Applied Social Research in a partnership program with Palestine Works.

The Mada Al-Carmel center is heavily financed by George Soros through his Open Society Foundations.

NGO Monitor lists some of the radical organization’s political advocacy. The center co-authored the “Haifa Declaration” which calls for a “change in the definition of the State of Israel from a Jewish state” and accuses Israel of “exploiting” the Holocaust “at the expense of the Palestinian people.”

The September 2011 edition of Mada al Carmel’s journal Jadal focused on “Boycotting Israel: Between Theory and Practice.”

As part of her Soros-backed fellowship at the Mada Al-Carmel center, Rahman spent a week with the radical Palestine Work organization.

“Each day includes presentations and workshops led by attorneys and human rights advocates, as well as field visits to human rights flashpoints, such as East Jerusalem, Hebron, the Jordan Valley,” the site states.

Rahman wrote an article for Fordham’s human rights newsletter upon her return to the U.S., describing attending a flashpoint anti-Israel protest against Israeli troops.

The article, titled, “Witnessing occupation, apartheid and resistance in Palestine/Israel” may be instructive in understanding her mindset and alleged criminal actions over the weekend.

She wrote (emphasis added):

I witnessed this oppression quite vividly on my initial visit to the West Bank. I was greeted by heavily armed Israel Defense Force soldiers (aka the Israeli Occupational Force) ushering people through Qalandia Checkpoint, one of the main points of entry into Ramallah in the West Bank from Jerusalem and a potent symbol of Israeli occupation. While taking part in one of the largest protests in the West Bank since the second intifadah this past July, I saw how peaceful protests at Qalandia (and other places) can turn into violent clashes when IDF soldiers provoke violence using tear gas, stun grenades, rubber-coated steel bullets and, often, live ammunition at civilians exercising their free speech. Over 40,000 strong, this protest was composed of youth, families, women, men, children and grandparents, all of whom marched together from the center of Ramallah to Qalandia checkpoint on the road to Jerusalem. What started out as a peaceful demonstration of resistance to the occupation and in solidarity with fellow Palestinians in Gaza—who were at this time facing aerial bombardment while under an occupational blockade with nowhere to escape—turned into an all-out clash. Young Palestinians were forced to resort to throwing rocks, their only form of self-defense, as IDF soldiers fired tear gas and skin-penetrating bullets into a peaceful crowd.”

Rahman expressed similar sentiments about the U.S. In a 2015 article for the same newsletter, she claims “militarized over-policing goes hand-in-hand with the gentrification of neighborhoods in New York City and throughout the country.” Rahman argues that “the process of gentrification runs its course with the help of institutionalized racism,” aided by police targeting of black and brown communities to pave the way for proponents of gentrification….

WASHINGTON — Following the Republican and Democratic national conventions, groups associated with the Black Lives Matter movement released a platform Monday that labels Israel an “apartheid state” and excoriates the United States for its alliance with a country it alleges systemically perpetrates a “genocide” against the Palestinians.
 
The platform, which demands “an end to the war against Black people,” marks the campaign’s first official entry into America’s debate over specific federal policies. In the past, Black Lives Matter has been noted for its protests against disparities within the nation’s criminal justice system that disadvantage African-Americans and other minorities.
 
The document makes 40 policy proposals, including abolishing the death penalty, providing free tuition to public universities, and enacting reparations to Black Americans, and addressed matters of US foreign policy in a section titled “Invest-Divest.”

Highly critical of the Jewish state — which it said “practices systematic discrimination and has maintained a military occupation of Palestine for decades” — the platform devoted a section to the US-Israel relationship. “The US justifies and advances the global war on terror via its alliance with Israel and is complicit in the genocide taking place against the Palestinian people,” the text said.
 
The platform goes on to suggest America’s close relationship with Israel and commitment to its security makes “US citizens complicit in the abuses committed by the Israeli government.”
 
“Israel is an apartheid state with over 50 laws on the books that sanction discrimination against the Palestinian people,” it continued. “Palestinian homes and land are routinely bulldozed to make way for illegal Israeli settlements. Israeli soldiers also regularly arrest and detain Palestinians as young as 4 years old without due process. Every day, Palestinians are forced to walk through military checkpoints along the US-funded apartheid wall.”
 
Israel’s security fence was constructed during the Second Intifada, from 2000-2005, to prevent Palestinian suicide bombers from infiltrating the country. More than 1,000 Israeli civilians were killed during that period, according to the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism.

At the end of this section, the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel is advertised as a resource, along with a website for Black-Palestinian solidarity.
 
The platform was released by The Movement for Black Lives, an umbrella group of more than 50 organizations, including the Black Lives Matter Network, the Black Liberation Collective, and the Center for Constitutional Rights, which often promotes the Palestinian cause.
 
Over the past two years, there has been much speculation over attempts by the pro-Palestinian movement to converge with Black Lives Matter and other social justice-related campaigns.
 
During protests over police treatment of African Americans in Ferguson, Missouri and Baltimore, Maryland, activists complained to reporters that the conditions of having heavily-armed police officers in those cities was comparable to being in Gaza.
 
That claim came almost a year after the 2014 Israel-Hamas war in the Gaza strip, when the Pew Research Center found that 43 percent of African-American respondents favored Israel in the conflict, while 20 percent supported the Palestinians.

At the Republican National Convention two weeks ago, an attempt to present such a coalition was on display. Abbas Hamideh, 41, of the Palestine Right to Return Coalition, told The Times of Israel he was in Cleveland to protest GOP nominee Donald Trump with Black Lives Matter activists.
 
“As Palestinians, we stand in solidarity with them. We have been colonized for over 68 years, so it is a natural bond, it is a natural alliance for us,” he said.
 
Hamideh went on to say he opposed a two-state solution and the very notion of a Jewish state, and that he promotes “a free Palestine from the river to the sea,” repeating a chant associated with the Hamas terrorist organization.
