Pence to Applause From DC Elite: Trump Giving ‘Serious Consideration’ to Moving Embassy [WATCH]
By Abra Forman May 3, 2017 , 11:30 am
“Blessed be Hashem out of Tzion, who dwelleth at Yerushalayim. Hallelujah.” Psalms 135:21 (The Israel Bible™)
Speaking at a Washington event for Israel’s 69th Independence Day on Tuesday, Vice President Mike Pence said that President Donald Trump is still seriously considering moving the US embassy to the capital.
“As we speak, [the White House] is giving serious consideration to moving the American embassy in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem,” said Pence, earning applause from the pro-Israel Washington elite attending the reception.
The event itself, held in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building and attended by US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, Israeli Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer, US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Texas Senator Ted Cruz among others, marked a significant moment in US-Israel relations. It was the first time in recent memory “that the White House has hosted a reception commemorating Israel Independence Day,” Friedman said, calling Pence a “champion of Israel.”

Two IDF Soldiers Banned From Temple Mount After Salute
By JNS May 3, 2017 , 1:30 pm
“Blessed be Hashem out of Tzion, who dwelleth at Yerushalayim. Hallelujah.” Psalms 135:21 (The Israel Bible™)
Two IDF soldiers touring the Temple Mount on Israeli Independence Day were banned from future visits after the soldiers apparently saluted at the holy site.
The two soldiers, who were in uniform at the time, apparently saluted when they passed by the former Holy of Holies site on the Temple Mount, Israel National News reported. The Holy of Holies refers to the inner sanctuary of the Jewish Temple where God is believed to have dwelt, and was the location where the Ark of the Covenant was kept during the First Temple period. The site is currently believed to be located within the Dome of the Rock, an Islamic shrine.
At the end of the tour, the soldiers were apparently told by police they may not return to the site.
“Freedom of Jews in a Jewish state in the land of Israel requires that every citizen be allowed access to every place without any restrictions,” said attorney Haim Bleicher, of the Israeli legal organization Honenu, who is representing the banned soldiers. “It doesn’t make sense that IDF soldiers who come to the holiest site on Independence Day should be barred from entering for no reason. This restriction has no basis and we will take legal action against it.”
Under the terms of the Temple Mount’s status quo agreement between the Israeli government and the Jordanian-run Islamic Waqf, Jewish and other non-Muslim visitation at the holy site is restricted to certain days and times. Further, non-Muslim worship is banned at the site.

Israel cuts funding to UNESCO

Israel will cut $1 M. of the funds it transfers to the United Nations following a resolution by UNESCO declaring Israeli sovereignty and jurisdiction over Jerusalem “null and void.”

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced that Israel will cut $1 M. of the funds it transfers to the United Nations following a resolution by its Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) declaring Israeli sovereignty and jurisdiction over Jerusalem “null and void.”

Speaking at the start of the weekly Cabinet meeting on Wednesday, Netanyahu called the resolution “delusional” and an “absurd decision.”

“I would like to say that this systematic harassment [by UNESCO] has a price. In wake of the resolution, I have instructed Foreign Ministry Director General Yuval Rotem to deduct $1 million from the funds that Israel transfers to the UN. Israel will not sit by while the organization calls for the denial of our sovereignty in Jerusalem,” Netanyahu stated.

In March, Israel a slashed $2 million in funding to the United Nations in the wake of its Human Rights Council’s (UNHRC) adoption of four anti-Israel resolutions.

In January, officials said that about $6 million would be suspended as an “act of protest” against a Security Council vote that condemned an Israeli presence in Judea and Samaria.

UNESCO has passed several anti-Israel resolutions regarding Jerusalem’s status in the past.

In the latest such vote on Tuesday, while Israel celebrated its 69th Independence Day, a majority of 22 states voted in favor, 10 voted against and 23 abstained.

‘One Point of Light’

While the overall outcome was negative for Israel, the vote marked a shift from the near-unanimous approval seen in previous anti-Israel UNESCO votes on Jerusalem, with 23 member states abstaining and 10 – the US, Italy, the UK, the Netherlands, Lithuania, Greece, Paraguay, Ukraine, Togo and Germany – opposing.

Netanyahu referred to the pro-Israel votes as “one point of light. More countries opposed this resolution than last year and fewer countries supported it.”

He thanked the countries that supported Israel, “but I would especially like to thank the Italian Foreign Minister and Prime Minister. Italy was the first European country to announce that it would oppose the resolution… I would also like to thank the President of Ukraine and the leaders of Paraguay and Togo. For the first time in UNESCO, more countries voted to oppose or abstained than voted in favor, and of course this is important.”

Israel is “working constantly to increase support for Israel in international bodies in order to reflect our growing status vis-à-vis bilateral contacts with countries. We are also working constantly to reduce, and I hope one day to cancel altogether, the UN theater of the absurd regarding the State of Israel,” Netanyahu added.

During the cabinet meeting, Minister of Culture and Sports Miri Regev called for the closure of the UNESCO offices in Jerusalem.

UNESCO maintains an office at the UN headquarters in the Armon Hanatziv neighborhood in Jerusalem alongside the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization (UNTSO) and the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, Nickolay Mladenov.

What Do Leprosy and Messiah Have to Do With Israel’s Independence Day?
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz May 2, 2017 , 7:00 am
0Share 0Email 0Share
“The stone which the builders rejected is become the chief corner-stone.” Psalms 118:22 (The Israel Bible
(Photo: Hadas Parush/Flash 90)
While national holidays are normally exclusive to the country celebrating, one rabbi has proclaimed that the nature of Israeli Independence Day (Yom Haatzmaut), which takes place on Tuesday, is actually universal and Messianic, with a Biblical message to the nations that allies from “outside the camp” of Israel are actually necessary to bringing the Messiah.

“Even the outcast, the total outsider has a part in it. This is especially true when it comes to the State of Israel,” Rabbi Ephraim Sprecher, Dean of Students at Diaspora Yeshiva on Mount Zion, told Breaking Israel News.
Rabbi Ephraim Sprecher (YouTube Screenshot)
His understanding derives from the weekly Torah reading, which currently deals with the Biblical malady of tsara’at, translated as leprosy. This reading happened to fall on the Shabbat preceding the week of Israel’s Memorial Day and Independence Day, and led Rabbi Sprecher to connect the events to the concept of redemption.
Rabbi Sprecher based his lecture on the Haftorah, a section from Writings or Prophets read in synagogue that deals with a theme from the weekly section of the Torah. This week, the reading was the seventh chapter of Kings II, which tells how a famine beset Samaria, then the capital of Israel, as a result of an Aramean siege.

Out of desperation, four lepers, expelled from the city for their impurity, decided to investigate the enemy camp. To their amazement, they discovered the enemy soldiers had inexplicably fled, leaving all their belongings, including food and water, behind.
“The lepers could have held a grudge and not saved the city people who kicked them out,” Rabbi Sprecher explained. “But the message of the story is that the great salvation came from the people outside the camp. They became the most treasured and valued people of the city, the heroes of the people, and the bringers of salvation.

evolutionary Vatican Declaration on Jewish Relations Translated to Hebrew

A Vatican document which revolutionized Catholic attitudes towards the Jewish religion 50 years ago has been translated into Hebrew for the first time, bringing renewed hopes that the message will spread and influence Jewish-Christian relations today.
The translated Nostra Aetate (Latin for “In our Time”) was presented to President Reuven Rivlin at a Jerusalem ceremony on March 21. The document, known as the “Declaration on the Relation of the Church with Non-Christian Religions”, was originally adopted by bishops present at the Second Vatican Council on October 28, 1965.
This document is a formal declaration by the Catholic Church regarding the way Christianity views people of other religions.
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/nostra.jpg
The Hebrew translation of the Nostra Aetate
It acknowledges the singular origin of all humans and that all people seeking affinity with God have a similar goal. With regard to Jews, the document states “the Jews should not be presented as rejected or accursed by God” and states that anti-Semitism is unacceptable. Additionally, it states that Jews, as a people, cannot historically be held responsible for the death of Jesus.
“The translation of this ground-breaking document will enable Israelis and other Hebrew speakers to better understand just how far the Catholic Church has come in its desire to promote religious tolerance in the world,” commented Roni Segal, academic adviser for The Israel Institute of Biblical Studies, an online language academy, to Breaking Israel News

Netanyahu on Memorial Day: "Israel Is the Realization of Generations' Dream"

At formal ceremonies, private gatherings and quiet visits to military cemeteries around the country, more than a million Israelis paused this Monday to remember 23,544 IDF soldiers who died during their military service. Since last Yom Hazikaron (Memorial Day), a total of 60 soldiers died and 37 disabled veterans succumbed to their war injuries and were recognized as fallen soldiers.
Israelis also remember 4,128 people who were murdered in terror attacks from the beginning of the Zionist project in the Land of Israel and until the present time. Among those, a total of 100 Israelis were murdered outside of Israel and another 122 were foreign citizens on Israeli soil. A total of 11 citizens died from terror assaults since last year, the latest being Hanna Bladon, a British student who was stabbed to death during an attack in the Jerusalem Light Rail about two weeks ago.

Israel Remembers

Thousands of Israelis paused Sunday evening to mark the beginning of Memorial Day.
Traffic came to a halt as the traditional memorial siren sounded at 8 pm, restaurants and places of entertainment closed and flags around the country were lowered to half-mast as the country paid tribute to 23,544 men and women who were killed during the War of Independence, the Sinai Campaign, Six Day War, Yom Kippur War, Operation Peace for Galilee and a host of military incursions over the past decade into the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.
Speaking at the Western Wall, President Reuven Rivlin called the holy site a “wall of tears and of hopes” and noted Israel’s return to the Old City 50 years ago, during the Six Day War.
“Fifty years after the liberation of Jerusalem, we remember: our liberty is sacred, both sacred and hard… it is our obligation to care, day and night, to do everything we can to ensure the safety of our citizens, the security of the State of Israel; and secondly, to do all we can to ensure the safety of our soldiers.

Transition of Solemn Memorial Day to Exuberant Independence Day Echoes
Two-Stage Messianic Process
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz May 1, 2017 , 3:30 pm
“And He said unto me: ‘Son of man can these bones live?’ And I answered: ‘O Lord GOD Thou knowest.’” Ezekiel 37:3 (The Israel Bible™)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/fireworks-yom-haatzmaut-children.jpg

Israel Independence Day comes directly after Memorial Day, in a logical arrangement that one rabbi says reflects the two-stage process of Messiah embodied in the State of Israel.
On May 1, before celebrating the modern miracle that is Israel, Israelis spent 24 hours remembering those who fell in wars or as a result of terror. The following day is Israel Independence day celebrating the day the Israeli government announced their nationhood in 1948.
Rabbi Shimon Apisdorf, a prominent Jewish educator and bestselling author, believes it is not a coincidence that Memorial Day directly precedes Independence Day.
According to Jewish tradition, there are two stages in the Messiah: Moshiach ben Yosef (Messiah from the House of Joseph) and Moshiach ben David (Messiah from the House of David). Moshiach ben Yosef is a natural, physical process building up the practical aspects of Israel.
Rabbi Apisdorf explained that these two stages are reflected in the Vision of the Dry Bones described in chapter 37 of Ezekiel. The beginning of the vision describes scattered bones.
So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied there was a noise and behold a commotion and the bones came together bone to its bone. Ezekiel 37:7
“This part of the vision is a process of bringing the bones together, binding them in the flesh,” explained Rabbi Apisdorf. “This describes Messiah from the House of Joseph. The first vision represents the Jews in exile, when we were like individual bones with no sense of being part of a whole. For the Jewish people, exile is a boneyard.”

On Sunday, hundreds of bereaved family members took part in Yom Hazikaron (Israel’s national Remembrance Day for Fallen Soldiers and Victims of Terror) ceremony organized by OneFamily, an Israeli NPO founded to support terror victims and their families. The ceremony, which takes place every year, is unique. It consists entirely of brief speeches of closest relatives of terror victims and fallen soldiers.
Among the speakers of this year were Ophir Shaar – the father of Gil-Ad Shaar, who was kidnapped along with his two friends at the Gush Etzion junction and murdered by Hamas terrorists in 2014; Ido Yaori – brother of Staff Sergeant Amit Yaori, a combat soldier who was killed during Operation Protective Edge; Liel Rubel – the brother of Sergeant Benaya Rubel, a paratrooper who was killed during Operation Protective Edge; Tzachi Krigman – the father of Shlomit Krigman, who was murdered in the Beit Horon terror attack in 2016; Malka Kalangel, mother of Major Yochai Kalangel, who was killed on the northern border in 2015; Reut Yahalomi – Corporal Netanel Yahalomi, who was killed on the Egyptian border in 2012. The ceremony was hosted by Yael Weissman, widow of Staff Sergeant Yanai Weissman, who was murdered while trying to stop two terrorists in the Rami Levy branch in 2016.

All 100 US Senators Demand End to UN’s ‘Anti-Israel Agenda’
“My words shall utter the uprightness of my heart; and that which my lips know they shall speak sincerely.” (Job 33:3)
By JNS April 30, 2017 , 7:30 am
“My words shall utter the uprightness of my heart; and that which my lips know they shall speak sincerely.” Job 33:3 (The Israel Bible™)

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/Capitol-Senate.jpg
The Senate side of the U.S. Capitol. (Wikimedia Commons)
All 100 U.S. senators signed a letter, sent to United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, demanding that the world body end its “anti-Israel agenda.”

The letter, authored by Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Christopher A. Coons (D-Del.), called on Guterres to “ensure that Israel is treated neither better nor worse than any other U.N. member in good standing.”

Further, the letter noted that “too often, the U.N. is exploited as a vehicle for targeting Israel rather than as a forum committed to advancing the lofty goals of its founders. These actions have at times reinforced the broader scourge of anti-Semitism, and distracted certain U.N. entities from their original missions.”
The letter condemns several U.N. bodies, including the Palestinian refugee agency UNRWA, the Human Rights Council (UNHRC) and the cultural body UNESCO. The senators urged the Human Rights Council to address “the many pressing human rights challenges of our time in countries such as Russia, China, North Korea, Syria, Cuba, Venezuela, and South Sudan,” rather than singling out Israel for criticism. UNESCO, meanwhile, last year passed two resolutions denying Jewish ties to the Temple Mount holy site.

While the letter does not mention an end to any U.S. funding for the world body, the senators wrote, “As both the U.N.’s principal founding member and its largest contributor, the United States should insist on reform….Continued targeting of Israel by the U.N. Human Rights Council and other U.N. entities is unacceptable. This situation must change.”

What Do Trump's First 100 Days Mean for Israel?
By Abra Forman April 30, 2017 , 11:30 am
“When a man’s ways please Hashem, He maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.” Proverbs 16:7 (The Israel Bible™)

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/trump-flag-face.png

(Breaking Israel News)
With the completion of President Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office, a time period often seen as formative for new presidents, the media is taking a close look at what the unconventional leader has accomplished, the tone he has set for his next four years, and the campaign promises he has kept or neglected.

How has Trump’s record on Israel in his first 100 days measured up? Breaking Israel News took a look at the biggest Israel-related stories which have come from the White House since Trump’s inauguration.

January 22 – On Trump’s second day in office, reports emerge from the White House that the administration has already begun discussions on the question of moving the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, which Trump had promised he would do while campaigning. The embassy was a major issue for Israel supporters, who were excited to see movement on the question so soon after Trump’s inauguration.

January 26 – Trump signs an executive order which would halt all funding to United Nations agencies which recognize the Palestinian Authority as a full member.

February 12 – Sending a mixed message to many right-wingers in Israel who hoped the Trump era would lead to a building spurt in Judea and Samaria, Trump tells Israeli press that he believes settlements “don’t help the peace process”. Five days later, during his first press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, he reinforces the message, telling Netanyahu, “I’d like to see you hold back on settlements for a little bit.”

February 15 – During their press conference, Trump becomes the first president in US history to introduce the possibility of a “one state solution”. Despite Trump’s request about settlements, the first official state meeting of the two leaders demonstrates the beginning of a “new era” in US-Israel relations, marked by warmth, honesty and transparency after the cooler attitudes of former President Barack Obama took relations between the countries to a low ebb.

February 26 – The Trump administration says it is considering leaving the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in protest of its blatant anti-Israel bias. The move is heartily welcomed by Israeli politicians.

March 6 – Trump sends a congressional committee to Israel to investigate moving the embassy to Jerusalem. At a press briefing, Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) says he expects the president to let a waiver which postpones the moving of the embassy every six months to expire in honor of the 50th anniversary of the liberation of Jerusalem in May. Once the waiver expires, it will become law to establish the US embassy in Jerusalem.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/461-BIN-SubscribeUSIsraelRelations-600WIDE.jpg

March 14 – President Trump dispatches Jason Greenblatt, his international negotiations advisor and an Orthodox Jew, to Israel in order to jumpstart the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians. Greenblatt meets separately with Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, but there are no visible “peace” developments.

March 31 – The White House officially approves Netanyahu’s request to build the first new settlement in the Jewish homeland in over 20 years, with the caveat that Israel hold back on additional settlement construction.

Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas (R) meets with Jason Greenblatt in Ramallah, March 14, 2017. (Flash90)
April 2 – Talks between the US and Israel on curbing settlement construction are suspended with little to show.

April 20 – The White House announces Trump will host Abbas in Washington on May 3 in hopes of crafting a “conflict-ending” deal.

April 24 – In a moving speech to a leading Jewish group, Trump extolls the “unbreakable spirit of the Jewish people” and vows “never again” in honor of Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day. The speech draws praise and admiration from Jewish groups on both sides of the political spectrum.

April 26 – It is announced that plans are in the works for Trump’s first-ever visit to Israel at the end of May.

April 27 – Israeli media reports that during Trump’s first trip to Israel, he will recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s undivided capital, but will not let the waiver mandating the embassy move expire.

April 28 – In opposition to previous reports, Rep. Ron DeSantis repeats his conviction that Trump will announce the moving of the US embassy to Jerusalem during his visit, which will coincide with the Jerusalem Jubilee, or celebration of 50 years of unity in the holy city.

It is too early to tell whether or not Trump will uphold his promises to the state of Israel in terms of moving the embassy, encouraging expanded settlement or taking apart the Iran nuclear deal. What is clear is that the US and Israel have truly begun a new phase in a storied relationship which holds infinite promise for lovers of Israel.

The Agenda for the Trump-Abbas Meeting
By Caroline Glick April 26, 2017 , 10:00 am

The day after Israel celebrates its 69th Independence Day, US President Donald Trump will greet PLO chief Mahmoud Abbas at the White House. The date of their meeting, May 3, is notable not least for its timing.

The timing of the meeting presumes a linkage between the establishment of Israel and the establishment of a Palestinian state. This is not merely obnoxious, it is also blind to reality.

In reality, an independent state of Palestine has existed for the past 12 years in Gaza. Rather than build that up and declare independence, Abbas and his comrades surrendered Gaza to Hamas in 2007.

Hamas, in turn, transformed independent Palestine into a base for jihad.

Abbas’s failure to declare independence in 2005 – and the subsequent failure of his US-trained forces to defend their control over Gaza in June 2007 from Hamas terrorists – is generally overlooked. But it is critical that Trump understand the significance of his behavior before he meets with Abbas.

Since the inception of the peace process between Israel and the PLO in 1993, the professed goal of the PLO has been to establish an independent Palestinian state on any territory over which it was able to take control from Israel. Yet 12 years ago, when Israel withdrew its citizens and military from Gaza, the PLO refused to take responsibility for the area insisting ridiculously that Gaza was still controlled by Israel.

Then 10 years ago, US-trained PLO forces fled to Israel rather than defend their control of Gaza when Hamas took up arms against them.

There are, it seems, two main reasons for Abbas’s behavior. The first is directly related to how he understood Israel’s decision to withdraw.

In December 2003, then-prime minister Ariel Sharon stunned the country when he adopted the platform of the Labor Party – which he had just massively defeated in the general elections – and removed all Israeli communities and military installations from Gaza, including from the border with Egypt, by the end of 2005.

Israeli society was nearly torn apart in the one year and eight months between Sharon’s surprise announcement and the expulsion of Gaza’s Jews in August 2005. The media hemorrhaged with continuous propaganda that demonized the Israeli residents of Gaza and the religious Zionist community in general.

A reminder of that toxic period came earlier this month, when Haaretz published a column by veteran reporter Yossi Klein in which he alleged that religious Zionists posed a graver danger to the State of Israel than Hezbollah.

Abbas and his lieutenants viewed the domestic chaos that engulfed Israel at the time as proof of Israel being on its way off the stage of history.

If this was how Israelis reacted to the destruction of 21 communities in Gaza (and four in northern Samaria) and the dispossession of 10,000 Israelis, it was clear to Abbas and his comrades that Israeli society would collapse if Sharon carried out his plan to reenact the Gaza withdrawal tenfold in Judea and Samaria after the 2006 elections.

Why accept Gaza if all of Israel was about to be destroyed – by its own hand? The second reason that Abbas didn’t declare independence in Gaza, is because he had no interest in being held accountable for his behavior – as leaders of independent states are. If he accepted sovereign power, then the Palestinians as well as Israel and, presumably, the rest of the world would be able to hold him to account for what happened within the territory he controlled. His ability to blame Israel for his failures would be diminished, at least in theory.

Far better, Abbas concluded, to pretend that Israel’s withdrawal was meaningless and blame Israel for his failure to govern his own territory.

Both reasons for Abbas’s rejection of responsibility over Gaza are important because they also reflect the views of the Palestinians as a whole.

Dan Polisar, from Shalem College, summarized in a recent article in the online magazine Mosaic, his study of more than 400 public opinion surveys of the Palestinians in Judea, Samaria and Gaza taken by professional pollsters over the past 23 years.
Like Abbas in 2005, the overwhelming majority of Palestinians believe that Israel isn’t long for this world.
In one 2011 survey, for instance, a mere 23% of Palestinians said they were certain that Israel will continue to exist 25 years hence. 44% were certain it would not.
The fact that more than three quarters of Palestinians are uncertain if Israel will survive is not only a function of Israel’s own self-destructive behavior – it is premised as well on Palestinian ideology.

The vast majority of Palestinians reject Israel’s right to exist. Indeed, a mere 12% of Palestinians believe that Jews have ties to the land of Israel.
Polisar showed that, whereas a plurality to a bare majority of Palestinians accepts the premise of a twostate solution, the overwhelming majority reject any deal that would leave Israel intact as a viable state capable of defending itself. Equally importantly, 68% of Palestinians believe that even if a Palestinian state is established in Gaza, Judea and Samaria with Jerusalem as its capital, they should continue to aspire to Israel’s destruction.

In other words, even if the PLO signs a deal with Israel that says the conflict has been resolved, for 68% of Palestinians the conflict will continue. They oppose ending the education of their children to seek Israel’s destruction and accepting Israel as a peaceful neighbor.
This then, brings us to Trump’s visit with Abbas, the day after Israel’s 69th birthday.
What does he intend to discuss with Abbas? From media reports, it appears that Trump intends to discuss the Palestinian Authority’s subsidization of terrorism to the tune of $300 million each year, which it pays out as salaries to terrorists in Israeli prisons and as stipends to their families.

In an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News earlier this week, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu urged Trump to hold Abbas to account for his massive budgetary outlays to terrorists and their families. He asked that Trump demand as well that Abbas stop the PA ’s indoctrination of the Palestinians to seek the annihilation of Israel and the murder of its citizens.

This is well and good. But it seems a bit beside the point. The point is that 69 years ago, the Jews established our state. A Palestinian state was not established then or since, not because Israel was unwilling for such a state to come into being, but because the Palestinians refuse to accept Israel’s right to exist.

If any good is to come from Trump meeting with Abbas – on May 3 or at any other time – then he should send the following message to Abbas and to the rest of the world.

To date, the US has supported the goal of Palestinian statehood, because it convinced itself that the Palestinians were interested in a state that would live at peace with Israel. The US pressured Israel to make concessions to the Palestinians in order to encourage them to accept Israel. And the US funded the PA thinking that doing so would advance the cause of peace. It trained and armed PA security forces for the same reason.
To date, the Palestinians, the PLO and the PA have not lived up to their side of the bargain – on anything.
They have not come to terms with Israel’s existence; they have not abjured terrorism; and they have not accepted responsibility for the areas under their control, either in Gaza, or in Judea and Samaria.

Since his is a new administration, Trump is willing to give Abbas the benefit of the doubt for three months. In that time Abbas needs to stop all financial transfers to terrorists and their families – in and out of prison; he needs to change the names of all the public sites now named after terrorists; and he needs to purge all anti-Jewish content from his PA -controlled media and mosques.
If Abbas fails to do all of these things by August 3, then the Trump administration will abandon its support for Palestinian statehood and its recognition of the PLO.

Cheapening the Value of Jewish Lives
By Michael Freund April 24, 2017 , 10:00 am
Defying any sense of fairness or logic, an Israeli military court earlier this week provided a mortifying example of why Palestinian terrorists have little to fear from the country’s justice system.

Despite confessing to opening fire on a group of Jewish worshipers at Joseph’s Tomb in Shechem (Nablus), which left one Israeli dead and four others injured, Nuaf Auda was sentenced to just six years in prison.

The leniency of his punishment is simply incomprehensible and underlines the need for the Jewish state to take a tougher line on how terrorists are penalized for their actions.

Back in 2011, during Passover, a group of Israelis entered Shechem in a vehicle to pray at the biblical shrine in the city. They neglected to coordinate their visit with the IDF, which the army requires because the city is under Palestinian control.

It was then that Auda and his accomplices, all of whom were Palestinian policemen, took chase in their police car.

Instead of firing warning shots or simply calling for back-up, the Palestinian perpetrators aimed their weapons at the Israelis and shot them.
The Shin Bet later said that “during questioning, the suspects confessed to firing on Israeli vehicles despite the fact that their lives were not at risk.”
The gunfire killed Ben Yosef Livnat, a 25-year-old father of four young children and the nephew of then-culture and sport minister Limor Livnat.
Following the shooting, Auda and his partners in crime spread rocks on the road to make it appear as if they had been the victims of stone-throwing and had no choice but to fire in self-defense. As a result, the judge convicted him of obstruction of justice and tampering with evidence.

But the court chose to acquit Auda of intentional manslaughter, because of alleged doubts about which Palestinian policeman fired the specific bullet that put an end to Livnat’s life and left his children orphaned.

Chaim Bleicher, an attorney from the praiseworthy Honenu legal aid organization that assists terrorism victims and their families, rightly protested the outrageous sentence, telling reporters: “The verdict that acquitted the defendant of a shocking murder has no basis in the evidence and facts presented in court.”

“The defendant,” Bleicher pointed out, “explicitly admitted that he shot at the victim’s vehicle and even admitted that he hurt him. In addition, a bullet was found in the victim’s vehicle which matched the trajectory indicated by the defendant in his confession.”
Inexplicably, that wasn’t enough for the military magistrate overseeing the trial, who gave Auda the equivalent of a slap on the wrist in light of the severity of his crime.

In the process, he also delivered a slap in the face to the Livnat family, which not only lost a husband and father, but must now contend with the injustice of his murderer’s sentence.

Sadly, this is hardly the first instance in which Palestinian terrorists have been treated with kid gloves by the Israeli justice system.
In February, an Arab youth who was part of a group that ambushed three Jewish youths in the Old City of Jerusalem five years ago was sentenced to community service even though he had blinded the eye of one of his victims.

And back in October, the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court sentenced Sheikh Omar Abu Saraa to just eight months in prison for incitement to violence, after he gave a sermon on the Temple Mount in which he declared, “The Jews are the most evil of Allah’s creatures. They are the most evil creatures that have ever been on earth… I clearly say to the Jews: The time has come to slaughter you. The time has come to wage war with you. The time has come to kill you. Inshallah, we are ready.”

The light sentences being meted out to Palestinian terrorists and those who incite to kill should shock anyone with a conscience.
Such leniency is inherently unjust, fails to deter Palestinian terrorism and does not sufficiently punish those who resort to violence.

Indeed, it cheapens the value of Jewish lives, as though the murder of a Jew warrants little more than half a decade behind bars, air-conditioning and cable TV included.
It is time that Israel’s courts begin imposing much harsher prison terms on terrorists who aim to cause death or bodily harm. Any Palestinian contemplating the use of violence needs to know that he will be punished severely and lengthily for his actions.
After all, a nation’s justice system is supposed to reflect and enforce society’s values and norms while protecting the innocent from those who would do them harm.
By this measure, the light sentences that are being handed down to Palestinian terrorists are clearly failing us all.

Five of Israel’s Latest ‘Miracles’ Leading Up to its 69th Birthday
By JNS April 28, 2017 , 8:00 am
“Behold, I am Hashem, the God of all flesh; is there any thing too hard for Me?” Jeremiah 32:27 (The Israel Bible™)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/top-5-flag.jpg
(Breaking Israel News)
By: Jacob Kamaras
With its forces vastly outnumbered by Arab armies, Israel’s victory in the 1948 War of Independence was widely considered a modern-day miracle. The Jewish state shocked the world again in 1967 by significantly expanding its borders and reunifying Jerusalem during the Six-Day War.
In 2017, the perceived miracles keep coming. Ahead of the 69th Israeli Independence Day (Yom Haatzmaut), JNS.org recounts five of Israel’s latest crowning achievements.

1. Baseball fever

Team Israel in the World Baseball Classic. (MLB Screencap)
Team Israel far surpassed expectations at the World Baseball Classic (WBC) in March, starting the international tournament with a four-game winning streak—including victories over baseball powerhouses South Korea, Taiwan and Cuba—before losses to the Netherlands and Japan ended its run.
Israel’s squad, comprised of Jewish Americans who are eligible for Israeli citizenship, garnered significant attention from major mainstream media outlets. ESPN ran a feature article dubbing Israel’s the “Jamaican bobsled team of the WBC,” given its current underdog story. The New York Times ran with the headline, “With Mirth and a Mensch, Israel Upsets South Korea in WBC,” referring to the team’s mascot, the popular plush Hanukkah toy Mensch on a Bench.

2. A ‘new sheriff’ at the UN

Israel has experienced decades of bias and disproportionate criticism from the United Nations, but the nascent Trump administration—under the leadership of Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley—is vowing to chart a new course for the world body’s culture on the Jewish state.
During her speech at March’s AIPAC policy conference, Haley described herself as the U.N.’s “new sheriff in town” and declared “the days of Israel-bashing are over.”
Haley, who in April assumed the U.N. Security Council’s rotating monthly presidency, has promised to refocus the council away from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
“The incredibly destructive nature of Iranian and Hezbollah activities throughout the Middle East demands much more of our attention. It should become this council’s priority in the region,” she said April 20.

3. Start-up nation’s $15 billion bombshell

In the latest and largest coup for Israel’s “start-up nation” reputation, the American high-tech giant Intel in March agreed to buy Israeli vision technology developer Mobileye for $15.3 billion. Intel hopes the acquisition helps it rise to the forefront of the rapidly expanding self-driving car market.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the Intel-Mobileye deal would lead to the creation of “thousands of additional jobs” in Israel.

4. Economy ‘defying gravity’

A nearly nonexistent inflation rate and low unemployment helped propel Israel to the No. 3 spot on a list of the world’s most stable and promising economies for 2016, published by the Bloomberg financial news agency this month.
Also this month, a report by Bank of America Merrill Lynch deemed the Israeli economy “on a robust recovery path with growth rates running at 3 to 4 percent levels,” noting that the Bank of Israel was “defying gravity” by checking the appreciation of the shekel against the dollar.
The number of foreign tourists visiting Israel, meanwhile, reached an all-time high of 739,000 in the first quarter of 2017. Israeli Tourism Ministry officials hope 2013’s record number of 3.54 million tourists visiting Israel will be surpassed this year.

5. Energy independence day?

What says “independence” more than energy independence?
Government ministers from Israel, Cyprus, Greece, Italy and the European Union this month agreed to advance the creation of the world’s longest gas pipeline, running 1,200 miles undersea between Israel and Italy.
The pipeline—which will cost upwards of $5.5 billion and is slated for completion by 2025—is expected to significantly increase Israel’s natural gas export potential and strengthen the Jewish state’s position as an emerging energy powerhouse in the Mediterranean.

Congressman Speculates Trump Will Announce Embassy Move on Jerusalem Jubilee
“Pray for the peace of Yerushalayim; may they prosper that love thee.” (Psalms 122:6)
At a pro-Israel political event on Thursday, Congressman Ron DeSantis speculated that US President Donald Trump will announce that the US Embassy will be moved to Jerusalem during his visit to Israel next month.
As chairman of the House Oversight National Security Subcommittee, DeSantis oversees American embassies. On Thursday, at an event on Capitol Hill launching the Congressional Israel Victory Caucus, DeSantis noted that the president will arrive in Israel on May 22, one day before Jerusalem Day, the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the unification of Jerusalem during the Six-Day War.
“What better time could there be to announce the relocation of the US embassy to Jerusalem than when you are over here celebrating with our Israeli friends this very important 50th anniversary of the liberation of Jerusalem?” DeSantis said to the Republican group.
“I think the announcement of that trip is a signal that it is more likely to happen than not, and will send a powerful signal to other countries around the world that America is back and will stand by our allies and will not let folks cower us into not doing the right thing,” said DeSantis.
Last month, Desantis was in Jerusalem, purportedly for preliminary groundwork concerning the embassy move. At the time, he speculated that President Trump would simply refuse to sign the waiver preventing the embassy move, thereby giving his tacit approval and allowing the process to move forward.
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/461-BIN-SubscribeUSIsraelRelations-600WIDE.jpg
In 1995, Congress voted in the Jerusalem Embassy Act, noting that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and that the U.S. Embassy should be moved there from Tel Aviv no later than May 31, 1999. The Act also included a stipulation allowing the President to issue a waiver every six months to keep the embassy in Tel Aviv if he determines such is necessary to protect the national security interests of the United States. Since the act passed congress, every president has signed the waiver.
The most recent waiver, signed by President Barack Obama in December in his final days of office, will terminate at the end of May.

On Israel’s Independence Day, UNESCO Vote to Declare Israel Has No Right to West Jerusalem Either
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz April 27, 2017 , 1:30 pm
“At that time they shall call Yerushalayim the throne of Hashem; and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of Hashem, to Yerushalayim; neither shall they walk any more after the stubbornness of their evil heart.” Jeremiah 3:17 (The Israel Bible™)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/temple-mount-fireworks.jpg

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) will celebrate Israel’s Independence Day next week by voting on anti-Israel resolutions. The resolutions will be presented to the Executive Board in Paris and will expand on previous UNESCO declarations by declaring the Jewish presence in West Jerusalem to be illegal.

Diplomatic sources informed the Jerusalem Post that the focus of the new resolutions will be to challenge Israeli sovereignty in all of Jerusalem. An initial draft composed by ten European countries was presented to UNESCO last month by a group of Arab states. The draft stated that “any action taken by Israel, the Occupying Power, to impose its laws, jurisdiction, and administration on the City of Jerusalem, are illegal and therefore null and void and have no validity whatsoever.”

The wording of this resolution goes further than previous UNESCO resolutions, which negated the Jewish connection to East Jerusalem and its holy sites while granting a religious monopoly of the city to Islam. If accepted next week, this will be the first time UNESCO has undermined Jewish sovereignty in West Jerusalem.

The resolution is also expected to reaffirm that the Jewish holy sites in Hebron and Bethlehem are Muslim. As in previous UNESCO resolutions, the Cave of the Patriarchs is referred to as Ibrahimi Mosque, and the Tomb of Rachel is referred to as Bilal bin Rabah Mosque, both being “an integral part of Palestine”.

“UNESCO has returned to the ritual of political anti-Israeli decisions that undermines anything Israel does in Jerusalem,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Thursday.
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/433-BIN-Subscribe-BiblicalProphecy-600WIDE.jpg
The UNESCO move to separate West Jerusalem from Israel comes at a curious time, when both Russia and the United States are supporting Israel’s claim to the city. Israel is waiting for US President Donald Trump to actualize his campaign promise to move the embassy to Jerusalem. Trump’s ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, has been highly critical of the organization’s anti-Israel bias. Earlier this month, an announcement appeared on the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs website that concluded with the startling statement that Russia views West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The UNESCO resolution is in direct contradiction of the Jerusalem policy of both major world powers.

The vote falls on Israel Independence day, three weeks before Israel will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the unification of Jerusalem. Israel integrated East Jerusalem after the military victory in the 1967 Six-Day War, and in 1980 passed the Jerusalem Law, declaring the city to be its capital in entirety.
At present, the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (ICEJ) is the only embassy to the Jewish State in Israel’s capital. This policy, however, is not even-handed. Of the 50 embassies to the Palestinian Authority in Israel, seven, including the Vatican embassy, are located in Jerusalem.

Red Cross Head on Israel: We Saw Apartheid in Africa; This Is No Apartheid
By JNS April 27, 2017 , 9:30 am
“O Hashem, deliver my soul from lying lips, from a deceitful tongue.” Psalms 120:2 (The Israel Bible™)

Jacques de Maio, head of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) delegation to Israel and the disputed territories, asserted in a rare interview this week that Israel is not an “apartheid state.”
The ICRC leader detailed the Palestinian Authority’s attempts at political manipulation, including accusations that Israel is an apartheid state that carries out “extrajudicial killings.”

“There is no IDF order to shoot suspects to kill, as political officials tried to convince us,” de Maio told Yedioth Ahronoth. “The Red Cross was very familiar with the regime in South Africa during apartheid…there is no apartheid here [in Israel].”

“There isn’t a regime here that is based on the superiority of one race over another; there is no disenfranchisement of basic human rights based on so-called racial inferiority,” he added.
According to de Maio, the Red Cross has worked with the IDF to clarify “the issue of shooting assailants who carry out terror attacks, and we reached an unequivocal conclusion that there is no IDF order to shoot suspects to kill, as political officials tried to convince us.”
De Maio said that when the ICRC rejected the Palestinians’ accusation of “extrajudicial killings,” there were “immediately those who claimed we were covering up war crimes committed by the IDF, and that we were serving the Zionists.”
The Red Cross leader’s sympathetic comments on Israel come despite the fact that his official title identifies him as head of the “delegation in Israel and the occupied territories,” employing an anti-Israel description for the disputed territories.

Trump Will Reverse US Policy and Recognize Jerusalem’s Sovereignty on Israel Visit: Report
By Abra Forman April 27, 2017 , 11:30 am
“Yerushalayim, that art builded as a city that is compact together.” Psalms 122:3 (The Israel Bible™)
The Israeli flag waves at the Western Wall in Jerusalem. (Shay Levy/ israel365)
President Donald Trump will recognize an undivided Jerusalem as the capital of Israel during his first visit, reportedly planned for May, but he will not overturn the long-standing veto on moving the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem when it comes up for renewal, reported Israeli newspaper Yedidoth Achronot on Thursday.

The biannual veto of the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 is due for renewal in May. Since the bill was first passed, every US president has signed a waiver at six-month intervals delaying the legislation’s enactment. The May deadline will mark the first time the bill has come up for consideration under President Trump.

During his campaign and in the beginning days of his presidency, Trump repeatedly vowed that moving the embassy to Jerusalem would be a top priority for his administration. Since taking office, messages coming from the White House have been mixed.

Trump has sent fact-finding teams to Israel to research the move, and last month Representative Ron DeSantis said in Jerusalem that he expected Trump would not renew the waiver in May. However, administration rhetoric has cooled considerably on the issue as Trump attempts to pursue an Israeli-Palestinian peace plan.

In any case, an acknowledgment of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel by a sitting American president would represent a huge shift in US policy, which until now had delicately avoided the issue by refusing to recognize the contested city as part of the country, let alone as its capital.

While Trump’s first Israel visit, reportedly set for late May or early June, has yet to be officially finalized, White House officials have confirmed that the administration is “exploring” the trip. According to Yedidoth Aronot, a delegation of 25 US government officials will arrive in Israel on Thursday to begin the planning stages.

Trump will be accompanied by his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner, both religious Jews. Kushner’s family and businesses have significant ties to Israel, and the presidential advisor has named him the administration’s Middle East ‘peace broker.’

Clash of Israel and Amalek Replays as ISIS vs. Egypt on Identical Biblical Battlefield of Rephidim
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz April 27, 2017 , 12:30 pm
“Wherefore then didst thou not hearken to the voice of Hashem, but didst fly upon the spoil, and didst that which was evil in the sight of Hashem?’” I Samuel 15:19 (The Israel Bible™)
Moses holding up his arms during the Battle of Rephidim, assisted by Hur and Aaron, in John Everett Millais’ Victory O Lord! (1871). (Wikimedia Commons)
The violent, ongoing conflict between Egypt and the Islamic State currently raging in the Sinai is a reenactment of the Biblical confrontation between Israel and Amalek, even taking place on the same battlefield, pointed out a military analyst who has turned to the Bible to make sense of current events.

Exodus tells of the legendary battle between Amalek, the ancestral enemy of the Jewish people, and the Israelites, which took place in a place called Rephidim, located in the Egyptian desert.
Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim. Exodus 17:8
Two thousand years later, a new battle against Israel’s enemies is being staged in exactly the same place: an Egyptian airfield in Bir Gafgafa, which is located precisely on the Biblical site of Rephidim in the Sinai Peninsula.
The connection was made, surprisingly, by Debka Files, an Israeli military intelligence website. Giora Shamis, the editor of the website, immediately saw the Biblical context as the framework for understanding a situation that pits ISIS-affiliated fighters against Egypt, considered an ally of Israel in this conflict.

“I am not religious, but the correlation between ISIS and Amalek is clear and should be taken into account when considering modern events,” Shamis told Breaking Israel News. “What happened thousands of years ago is simply being played out again, a continuation of what already happened there historically.”

Shamis, who is secular, sees the Bible as a source that has a great deal to contribute in understanding the modern political forum.

“The stories in the Bible not only have a religious side, but they also have a political aspect we would do well to learn from,” Shamis said.

Shai Ben Tekoa, another journalist who views current events from a Biblical perspective, also sees Amalek as an archetype for ISIS, explaining in detail how ISIS can trace its military and ideological heritage from the Biblical nemesis.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/433-BIN-Subscribe-BiblicalProphecy-600WIDE.jpg

“ISIS in particular and Islamic terrorism in general are clearly incarnations of Amalek,” said Tekoa, former head broadcaster for Arutz Sheva, to Breaking Israel News. “Like Amalek, they seek out gratuitous cruelty.”

Ben Tekoa noted the tactical similarities in Israel’s Biblical confrontation with Amalek and how it translates to modern problems with Islamic terror.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/sinai-2-683x1024.png


Map of the Sinai Peninsula and Israel. (Wikimedia Commons)
“Amalek’s main tactic was to avoid head-on confrontation,” Ben Tekoa explained. “They were sneaky, coming up from the rear to attack the weakest in society, just like ISIS and Islamic terrorists today.

“Our problem is not with Islamic armies. Islamists are congenital ambush artists, inheriting this from their Biblical forefathers.”

Ben Tekoa feels that the Biblical perspective is the most accurate lens for perceiving the regional politics and other journalists would do well to follow suit.

“The Bible is true, and its timeless brilliance is the best source for understanding the world today,” Ben Tekoa said. He related how, after learning about religion and Islam at Columbia University, he turned to the Bible for more insight. “I learned more about the Arabs and Islam from the few sentences in the Bible concerning Ishmael than from all the academic sources I studied.”

It appears that the political analysts are just now catching on to what religious experts have known all along. Rabbi Matityahu Glazerson, an expert in Bible codes, posted a video in 2015 in which he noted that the word ‘Amalek’ is composed of two words: ‘Am’ (nation) and ‘Malek’ (behead), hinting at ISIS’s signature brutality.

Rabbi Glazerson went on to show the gematria (numerology) of Amalek equals 240. Every nation has a ruling angel, and Amalek’s angel is the evil Samael. The gematria of Samael equals 136. Rabbi Glazerson then combined the two names and arrived at a total of 376, which equals the numerology of Daesh, the Arabic acronym for ISIS.

Trump Administration to Increase Aid to Palestinians, Report Says
“Ye have sown much and brought in little ye eat but ye have not enough ye drink but ye are not filled with drink ye clothe you but there is none warm.”
(Haggai 1:6)

As the Trump administration prepares to initiate significant foreign aid cuts around the world, State Department documents published Monday indicate the White House plans to increase aid to the Palestinian Authority (PA).

The documents, published by Foreign Policy magazine, detail the State Department’s internal budget plan and show a planned increase of 4.6 percent in aid to Palestinian areas in the West Bank and Gaza for the fiscal year of 2018. The increase in U.S. aid would amount to $215 million for the year.
According to the documents, Syria, Iraq and Libya will also see increases in aid for the 2018 fiscal year, but aid will to Egypt will be cut 47.4 percent and Jordan will see a drop of 21 percent.

The proposed budget changes strike a different tone than the Trump administration expressed in January, when it informed the PA it had frozen President Barack Obama’s transfer of $221 million to the Palestinians in the last hours of his administration.
Reports of the potential aid increase to the PA come ahead of a May 3 meeting at the White House between President Donald Trump and PA President Mahmoud Abbas.

Since 1980, Saudi Arabia reportedly built at least 150 mosques, founded a university in Jakarta, built several Arabic-language institutes, paid for books and teachers for over 100 boarding schools and funded thousands of scholarships.
German Foreign Minister Flat Out Refuses to Talk to Netanyahu
Netanyahu cancelled his original meeting with the German Foreign Minister after the Minister refused to cancel a meeting with radical leftist organizations B'Tselem and Breaking the Silence.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu called German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel to explain his decision to cancel their meeting Tuesday. However, the minister refused to talk with Netanyahu.
Netanyahu cancelled the meeting after Gabriel refused to cancel a meeting with radical leftist organizations B'Tselem and Breaking the Silence.
The Prime Minister's Office released a statement explaining Netanyahu's reasons for cancelling the meeting.
"Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's policy is not to meet with diplomats who visit Israel and meet with organizations that defame IDF soldiers and seek to prosecute them as war criminals," the prime minister's office said.
"The same diplomats will not consider meeting in the US or Britain with representatives of organizations calling for the prosecution of American or British soldiers. The Israel Defense Forces and its soldiers are the basis of our existence. Relations with Germany are very important to Israel and will continue."
Gabriel was informed that his meeting with the Prime Minister was cancelled during a meeting with President Reuven Rivlin.
"The Israeli ambassador has informed us that - to my regret - the meeting with Netanyahu has been cancelled," Gagriel told the German Bild newspaper.
He added that his views on the German-Israeli relationship had not changed.

Trump in Talks for First Israel Visit Next Month
By Abra Forman April 26, 2017 , 12:30 pm
“‘There is a league between me and thee…’” I Kings 15:19 (The Israel Bible™)

President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are reportedly in the advanced stages of confirming Trump’s first state visit to Israel next month, Israeli media said on Wednesday. Trump has never been to Israel before.
According to the report by Channel 2, the president’s visit to the Jewish state could happen on May 21 or shortly thereafter, coinciding with Trump’s inaugural visit to Europe as president.
While several reports emerged that Trump planned on visiting Israel during the presidential campaign, the trip never happened.
The two world leaders first met in an official state meeting in February, when Netanyahu paid a visit to the White House. Trump and Netanyahu gave a joint press conference which seemed to indicate that the close relationship with Israel Trump had promised during the campaign was off to a strong beginning.
His early visit, less than six months into his presidency, represents a marked departure from his predecessor President Barack Obama, who waited until his second term in office to come to Israel.
Trump is scheduled to meet with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Washington on May 3. His administration has said that it is seeking a “conflict-ending” deal between Israel and the Palestinians.

Marine Le Pen’s Muslim Slaughter Ban Targets Kosher Meat, Too
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz April 26, 2017 , 1:30 pm
“Only be steadfast in not eating the blood; for the blood is the life; and thou shalt not eat the life with the flesh.” Deuteronomy 12:23 (The Israel Bible™)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/marine-le-pen.jpg
Marine Le Pen (JÄNNICK Jérémy/Wikimedia Commons)
While campaigning at a meat market near Paris, Marine Le Pen, the right-wing candidate in the ongoing French presidential elections, announced that, if elected, she would ban ritual slaughtering of animals. This announcement caused even more concern about the presidential candidate, whose anti-Muslim platform will also harm Jews.
“Slaughter without stunning, I’m sorry, it should have special labels,” Le Pen said. “Furthermore, I think that slaughter without stunning should be prohibited.”
Le Pen is running on an anti-immigration platform, which is increasingly popular in a terror-stricken France. This new measure is intended to target Halal slaughtering for religious Muslims but like many of the anti-Muslim measures Le Pen advocates, this will also harm Jews. The laws of halal and kosher slaughtering are similar, both requiring the animal to be fully conscious before being slaughtered.

Ritual slaughter is prohibited in several European countries, ostensibly for reasons of animal cruelty. This type of ban has historically been used as an anti-Semitic subterfuge, most notably in pre-war Germany and Poland.
This call for a moratorium on ritual slaughtering is consistent with Le Pen’s strong anti-Muslim platform. She has called for a shutdown of immigration from Muslim countries, a ban on public prayer, and a ban on the wearing of Muslim religious symbols.

“If Marine Le Pen Is Elected President of France, the Jews Must Leave”

Russia’s Chief Rabbi Berel Lazar warned French Jews that if far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen wins, they must leave the country, EJP reported Saturday. Lazar also praised President Vladimir Putin’s attitude towards Jews in the same speech.

Addressing an audience of more than 2,000 at the Limmud FSU conference in Moscow, Rabbi Lazar said “the situation in Europe is very worrying,” and suggested that “If Marine Le Pen is elected president of France, the Jews must leave.”
Rabbi Lazar voiced his concern about the rise of nationalism across Europe. “The situation there is very worrisome,” he said. “Not only because of immigrants, but also because the general population is heading toward radicalization. The best example of this is the rise of extreme-right parties.”

France goes to the polls on Sunday to vote in the first round of presidential elections. None of the 11 candidates running are expected to get an outright majority of votes; the leading contenders will face off again for the final vote May 7. Marine Le Pen, who heads the far-right National Front party, will likely join centrist Emmanuel Macron in the top slots. Le Pen has been accused of anti-Semitic and Holocaust-denying comments.
Russia’s chief rabbi also praised President Putin, whom, he argued, “was the first president to publicly speak out against anti-Semitism and did the most for the Jews in Russia.” Lazar suggested “there is no institutional anti-Semitism in Russia, where the attitude toward the Jews is excellent.”
He stated that “in contrast with Gorbachev and Yeltsin, who were not interested in hearing about the situation of the Jews in Russia, Putin was the first to say that anti-Semitism has no place in Russia.” He pointed to the Limmud FSU event as proof that Russian Jewry is thriving under Putin’s rule.

Pope Francis Likens Migrant Crisis to Holocaust, Calling Refugee Centers “Concentration Camps”
By Abra Forman April 23, 2017 , 11:30 am
“The God who is my rock, in Him I take refuge; my shield, and my horn of salvation, my high tower, and my refuge; my saviour, Thou savest me from violence.” II Samuel 22:3 (The Israel Bible™)
Pope Francis drew the ire of Jewish groups on Saturday when he likened modern European refugee centers to the concentration camps used by Nazis during the Holocaust one day before Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day.
“These refugee camps – so many are concentration camps, crowded with people…because international accords seem more important than human rights,” he criticized at a Rome ceremony paying tribute to modern-day Christian martyrs.
The comment met with immediate backlash from Jewish groups.
“The conditions in which migrants are currently living in some European countries may well be difficult, and deserve still greater international attention, but concentration camps they certainly are not,” American Jewish Committee CEO David Harris said in a statement.
He emphasized that there was no ground for comparison between the conditions of the migrant camps, many of which receive aid from the United Nations, and the conditions of the camps where Jews were imprisoned, tortured and murdered during the Holocaust.
“The Nazis and their allies erected and used concentration camps for slave labor and the extermination of millions of people during World War II. There is no comparison to the magnitude of that tragedy,” Harris said.
The pope, an outspoken advocate for thousands of migrants fleeing war-torn Arab countries, has made strong statements in the past about the need to accept and integrate Muslim refugees into stable countries despite the danger of infiltration by radical Islamists.
He has used the language of the Holocaust before to describe the plight of the refugees, arguing last May that the worst form of welcome is to “ghettoize” the migrants and even going so far as to imply in one instance that naturalized citizens who committed terror attacks had done so because they “grew up in a ghetto” inside their adopted country.
The pope’s Saturday comments came just a day before Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day, which begins on the evening of Sunday, April 23.

General Mattis and the Fatah Tautology
By Caroline Glick
Mattis arrives in Israel with a public record replete with anti-Israel statements that indicate he swallowed the Fatah tautology hook, line and sinker.
On Friday, US Secretary of Defense James Mattis will visit Israel as part of a tour of the region that will bring him to Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Djibouti. The declared purpose of Mattis’s trip is to “reaffirm key US military alliances, engage with strategic partners in the Middle East and Africa, and discuss cooperative efforts to counter destabilizing activities and defeat extremist terror organizations.”
Ahead of his visit, Mattis should spend some time considering the hunger strike being carried out by the Palestinian terrorists imprisoned by Israel. A serious consideration of the strike will tell him more about the nature of the Palestinian conflict with Israel than a hundred “expert” briefings.
There are several important things for Mattis to consider in relation to the strike.
The first thing he needs to note is that all of the terrorists on strike are members of the Fatah terrorist group.

Palestinians’ Real Enemies: Arabs
By Khaled Abu Toameh April 20, 2017 , 9:00 am
The Arab heads of state and monarchs do not like to be reminded of how badly they treat Palestinians and subject them to discriminatory and apartheid laws.
It is not comfortable or safe to be a Palestinian in an Arab country. Scenes of lawlessness and anarchy inside Palestinian refugee camps in the West Bank have also driven many residents to move to nearby cities and villages. Most refugees in the West Bank no longer live inside UNRWA-run camps.
Let us end where we began: with the Palestinian (non)leadership. What has it done to help its people in the Arab countries? Nothing. No Palestinian leader will urge an emergency session of the UN Security Council to expose the ethnic cleansing and killing of Palestinians in Arab countries. No Palestinian leader will demand that the international media and human rights organizations investigate the atrocities perpetrated by Arabs on their Palestinian brethren. We are sure to see more such criminal silence when Abbas meets with the president of the United States.
Palestinians living in refugee camps in the Arab world are facing ethnic cleansing, displacement, and death — but their leaders in the West Bank and Gaza Strip are too busy tearing each other to pieces to notice or even, apparently, care much.

Deadly Paris Attack Days Before National Election
by Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz April 21, 2017 , 10:52 am
“Hashem, Thou hast heard the desire of the humble: Thou wilt direct their heart, Thou wilt cause Thine ear to attend; To right the fatherless and the oppressed, that man who is of the earth may be terrible no more.” Psalms 10:17-18 (The Israel Bible™)

A gunman jumped from a car and opened fire with an automatic weapon on a police vehicle on the famed Champs-Elysees in Paris on Thursday night, killing one policeman and wounding two others. The gunman, whom the Islamic State (ISIS) has claimed as one of its soldiers, was killed at the scene by security forces, but the attack, coming just a few days before the national elections, is expected to affect the political future of France.

The French president, François Hollande, said the attack was “terrorist in nature” and promised “utmost vigilance” by security services to ensure security around the presidential election. He has called a defense council meeting for Friday.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/445-BIN-Subscribe-MiddleEast-600WIDE.jpg

ISIS claimed credit for the killing in their affiliated news service, Amaq, naming the attacker, Abu Yousif Abu-Yusuf al-Baljiki (the Belgian), one of their “soldiers”.

Abu Yusuf was formally known as Karim Cheurfi. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison in 2003 for stealing a gun from a policeman and shooting him three times. That term was reduced to 15 years in 2005. Cheurfi was already known for committing violent robberies and was in police custody at the time of the incident, the newspaper reports.

The attack came three days before the French national elections, coincidentally during a televised debate. It is expected that this attack will affect the outcome, giving a boost to Marine Le Pen, the National Front chairwoman, a staunch nationalist who opposes large-scale Muslim immigration to France. Three candidates, includeing Le Pen, announced they were suspending their campaigns in a show of solidarity with the police.

Nikki Haley Makes Waves At UN By Focusing on Human Rights Violations Instead of Israel [VIDEO]
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz April 21, 2017 , 11:57 am
“To do justly is joy to the righteous, but ruin to the workers of iniquity.” Proverbs 21:15 (The Israel Bible™)

The UN Security Council’s monthly meeting on the situation in the Middle East is usually an Israel-hate-fest, but on Thursday, Nikki Haley, the US Ambassador, urged the council to focus on human rights violators instead, most notably, Iran.
“In case after case, human rights violations and abuses are not merely the incidental byproduct of conflict,” Ms. Haley said at the session. “They are the trigger for conflict.”

Haley drew the council’s attention to egregious violators: North Korea, Cuba and Syria.
“Every month the Security Council convenes a meeting on the Middle East. We have lots of meetings on specific countries and conflicts in this region but this debate is our opportunity to talk about the Middle East as a whole. Regrettably, these monthly meetings routinely turn into Israel-bashing sessions. That’s the way the Security Council has operated for years. It’s a formula that is absurdly biased against one country. It’s a formula that is painfully narrow in its description of the conflicts in the region,” said Haley. The US ambassador is currently serving as president of the Security Council for one month.

“Iran is using Hezbollah to expand its regional aspirations. That is a threat that should be dominating our discussions at the Security Council,” she said, blaming Iran for troubles in Syria and Yemen. She noted the close ties between Iran and the terror group Hezbollah.
“Hezbollah, a terrorist organization, uses towns to shield… tens of thousands of illegal rockets,” Haley said.

Haley’s comments were praised by the Israeli Ambassador Danny Danon when he addressed the council.
“Where there is terror, where there is death, there is Iran. Teheran is an accomplice in the atrocities taking place every single day in Syria,” Danon said. “The Iranian proxy Hezbollah places its weapons in homes, mosques and hospitals in Lebanon, and in Gaza, Hamas has spent millions of Iranian dollars on rockets, guns and digging terror tunnels,” he said, noting that Israel is especially the focus of Iranian agression.

Fearing U.S. Attacks, Syria Reportedly Moves Warplanes to Russian Base for Protection
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz April 20, 2017 , 3:36 pm
“Blessed be Hashem my Rock, who traineth my hands for war, and my fingers for battle.” Psalms 144:1 (The Israel Bible™)

Sukhoi Su-34, By Dmitry Terekhov via Wikimedia Commons
In the wake of a US missile strike that seriously crippled its air-force,Syria is moving its remaining planes to an airfield adjacent to a Russian airbase. Despite rising tensions with Russia, the US remains committed to preventing further chemical attacks by the Syrian government.

Two defense officials told CNN the Syrian military began moving its aircraft to the air base at Bassel Al-Assad International Airport shortly after the US missile strike on the Sharat air base on April 6. The airport adjacent to the Khmeimim Air Base, formerly a Syrian airbase but currently most of Russia’s air assets are located there. The Russian base is protected by advanced anti-aircraft systems which would presumably offer protection to the nearby Syrian airbase, making the US reluctant to initiate another strike.

The US used 59 Tomahawk missiles to destroy 24 warplanes in the attack, which is estimated to be 20 percent of Syria’s fixed wing aircraft.

“The Syrian Air Force is not in good shape. It’s been worn down by years of combat plus some … significant maintenance problems,” Secretary of Defense General James Mattis told reporters at the Pentagon on Wednesday.

The US missile-strike came in response to a sarin nerve gas attack Syrian President Bashar al-Assad launched from Sharat air base, killing approximately 70 civilians. Though Russian personnel were on the Syrian base, the US warned Russia before the attack. 14 Syrians were killed in the US missile attack but no Russian casualties were reported.

The attack created tensions between the US and Russia, which supports the regime of Assad. Assad has been fighting a civil war for six years which has killed over 300,000 Syrians. Assad denied using chemical weapons, and Russia condemned the US missile strike. Despite Assad’s claims, the director general for the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, Ambassador Ahmet Üzümcü, said Wednesday that analysis of samples from victims of the Khan Sheikhoun attack showed “incontrovertible” results that “sarin or a sarin-like substance” was used in the attack.

Syria was required to turn over all of its chemical weapons in 2014 following an agreement brokered by former President Barack Obama. Despite assertions by Obama and his Secretary of State, John Kerry, that Syria had relinquished “100 percent” of its chemical weapons, experts now claim that tons of dangerous weapons remain in secretly stockpiles.
President Trump was reluctant to become involved in the Syrian conflict, but now threatens continued action if Assad continues to use chemical weapons. General Mattis affirmed this at the press conference.
“The Syrian regime should think long and hard before it again acts so recklessly in violation of international law against the use of chemical weapons,” Mattis said, later adding that “if they use chemical weapons, they are going to pay a very, very stiff price.”

sraeli Youth Hold Massive BBQ Outside Cells of Hunger-Striking Palestinian Terrorists
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz April 20, 2017 , 11:30 am
“And the Kohen shall burn them upon the altar: it is the food of the offering made by fire for a sweet savour: all the fat is Hashem’s.” Leviticus 3:16 (The Israel Bible™)

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/shutterstock_400697542.jpg


Barbecue (Image by Shutterstock)
The youth contingent of the National Unity Party is cooking a massive barbecue on Thursday, upwind from the prison in which over 1,000 Palestinian prisoners are holding a hunger strike. The succulent aroma of cooking meat will waft through Ofer Prison where the prisoners, most wanted for security offenses against Israelis, are protesting for better conditions.

“The time has come to stop listening to the hunger strikers and show them that we are not giving in to their whims,” ​​said Ophir Sofer, secretary-general of the National Union party. “We call upon the government and its leader to further worsen conditions for terrorists and to act with conviction for the release of the soldiers Goldin and Shaul who fought for us all.”

The hunger strike was called after a year and a half of negotiations with prison officials.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/445-BIN-Subscribe-MiddleEast-600WIDE.jpg

Chairman of the National Union Youth, Avichai Greenwald, asks “Surrender to a hunger strike? It is not even clear why there is no death penalty for terrorists. We wish the terrorists success in the strike. Let them go through with it all the way.”

The hunger strike became the focus of controversy on Monday when its organizer, Marwan Barghouti, announced it in an op-ed in the New York Times. The NY Times presented Barghouti as ““a Palestinian leader and parliamentarian”, without mentioning that he is in an Israeli prison after being convicted of five counts of murder. The NY Times earned the ire of many, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who said, “Barghouti is a politician like Assad is a pediatrician”

Many believe the hunger strike is a ploy by Barghouti to shore up his waning political presence. Barghouti has been caught on video eating in his cell during hunger strikes he has called.

Trump to Host Abbas May 3 at White House, Seeks ‘Conflict-Ending’ Deal
By JNS April 20, 2017 , 1:29 pm

President Donald Trump is set to host Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas May 3 at the White House as he seeks to forge an elusive peace deal between the Israelis and Palestinians.

“They will use the visit to reaffirm the commitment of both the United States and Palestinian leadership to pursuing and ultimately concluding a conflict-ending settlement between the Palestinians and Israel,” White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said Wednesday.

Trump and Abbas spoke by phone in mid-March, when the U.S. leader invited Abbas to visit Washington. Later, Abbas met in Ramallah with Trump’s special envoy for international negotiations, Jason Greenblatt, telling him he believes a “historic” peace deal is possible under the guidance of Trump.

Direct negotiations between the Israelis and Palestinians have been stalled since 2014. During his meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in February, Trump expressed openness to Israeli-Palestinian conflict resolutions other than a two-state solution, breaking with American presidential administrations’ longstanding exclusive support for two states.

“I’m looking at two state and one state, and I like the one that both parties like…I can live with either one,” Trump said at the time.

Trump Administration Tells Congress Iran Complying With Nuclear Agreement

The Trump administration told Congress on Tuesday that Iran is complying with the terms of the nuclear deal, but they are launching a review to determine whether it is in America’s security interests to lift the remaining sanctions.

Under the terms of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the deal that was brokered by former President Barack Obama with Iran in 2015, the State Department is required to notify Congress every 90 days regarding Iranian compliance. This was the first such notification under the new administration.

“The U.S. Department of State certified to U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan today that Iran is compliant through April 18 with its commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action,” Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in a statement.

“President Donald J. Trump has directed a National Security Council-led interagency review of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action that will evaluate whether suspension of sanctions related to Iran pursuant to the JCPOA is vital to the national security interests of the United States,” Tillerson added.

However, in a letter sent late Tuesday to House Speaker Paul Ryan, Tillerson expressed serious concerns about Iran.
“Iran remains a leading state sponsor of terror, through many platforms and methods,” Tillerson stated.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) verified in January of 2016 that Iran was in compliance with the terms of the JCPOA to scale back its nuclear program. As a result, some international sanctions were lifted. The deal was intended to allow Iran to retain a nuclear program while limiting its ability to produce nuclear weapons.

Iran has been in violation of international agreements regarding its missile program several times, leading to the reinstatement of some sanctions. Iran remains on the US list of states that sponsor terrorism.
During his campaign, President Trump referred to the JCPOA as “the worst deal ever”, leading many to believe he would work towards repealing it.

ISIS Attacks Sinai Monastery in Ongoing War Against Christianity

ISIS forces opened fire from a hilltop overlooking the police checkpoint situated about 800 yards from Saint Catherine’s Monastery, a popular tourist site in the heart of the Sinai Peninsula. One Egyptian police officer was killed and four others were injured. It is believed that some of the ISIS attackers were wounded before fleeing the scene. The Islamic State (ISIS) claimed responsibility for the attack via the ISIS-affiliated Amaq news agency.

Saint Catherine’s Monastery, part of the Eastern Orthodox Church, was built in the sixth century and is the oldest operating monastery in existence. This is the first time ISIS has attacked a monastery, but it comes ten days after an ISIS affiliated terror group attacked two Coptic Churches in Egypt, setting off bombs that killed 45 people. After the attack, Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi declared a three-month state of emergency. Tensions are high as this recent act of anti-Christian violence comes ten days before Pope Francis is scheduled to visit Egypt. ISIS sources stated the terror group will continue to target Christians in Egypt. Egypt, with ten percent of its 90 million people as Christians, has the largest population of Christians in the Middle East.

The US Government issued a travel warning on Wednesday, advising American citizens in Egypt to stay away from Christian places of worship for the next two weeks and to avoid crowds as long as they remain in the country. The Israeli Government issued a travel warning last week, instructing Israelis to leave the Sinai while banning more Israeli citizens from entering.

The Jewish pyramid of Adullam
Archaeologists are beginning to study and excavate an ancient Jewish pyramid believed to be related to a burial structure near Hirbet Madras; pyramid is believed to be a vestige of Hellenistic influence in the area.
Assaf Kamar|Published: 17.04.17 , 11:42
On a hilltop near Hirbet Madras in the Adullam Grove Nature Reserve lies an ancient Jewish pyramid.

Follow Ynetnews on Facebook and Twitter

The rare pyramid is built of huge ashlar stones that were hewn in the vicinity. In ancient times it was easy to see the unique structure proudly overlooking the area from the top of the hill and today, the remains of the pyramid are hidden in vegetation.

Archeologist Dr. Orit Peleg-Barkat of Hebrew University is studying the pyramid and describes the structure's size as rare and monumental.

"The length of the base sides of the pyramid are 10 meters and the height is about 3 meters," said Dr. Peleg-Barkat. "The pyramid was built near a Jewish settlement from the time of the Second Temple and there is a high probability that it is a Jewish cemetery."

While ancient peoples all over the world have built pyramids, what is the connection to Jews?

According to archaeologist and Prof. Boaz Zissu of Bar-Ilan University, after the establishment of the empire of Alexander the Great, which conquered and unified the region geographically and culturally, Second Temple era Jews were influenced by the dominant Hellenistic culture.

"Ancient Egyptian culture had an influence on the Hellenistic culture that ruled the Land of Israel, and Hellenistic culture in turn influenced the Jews living in its territory. The pyramid was built on the border between Jewish communities and Edomite communities and it is assumed that the Jews took the geometry of the pyramid rather than the religious ideas," said Prof. Zissu.

In ancient Jewish sources, the monument above the burial cave is called "Nefesh," and it symbolizes the location of the cave. In Israel, there are other pyramids such as those in the Jerusalem area like the Tomb of Zechariah in the Kidron Valley.

Despite the hypothesis that the structure is indeed a burial complex, Dr. Peleg-Barkat notes that the chances of the underground caves being excavated are low. This is due to an incident in the 1970s in which Ultra-Orthodox protestors destroyed findings they deemed "desecration of graves" of a previous Jewish burial ground.

ISIS has not just borrowed Hamas' tactics of using civilians as human shields. It has done so because the world's response to Israel fighting Hamas terrorism - demonstrations, blaming and condemning Israel, calling for restraint - has convinced ISIS that the tactic works:
"By blaming Israel for civilian casualties that were actually deliberately caused by Hamas’s actions, the world ensured that other terrorist organizations would adopt a similar strategy. Or to put it more bluntly, it ensured that many more civilians would die, because terrorist groups would see a profit in their deaths.
ISIS obviously bears primary blame for all civilian deaths in Mosul. But a portion of that blame is shared by every journalist, “human rights” activist, politician and demonstrator who blamed Israel rather than Hamas for civilian deaths in Gaza–because they are the ones who persuaded ISIS that deliberately sacrificing civilians is an effective way to fight a war."

ISIS Borrows a Tactic from Hamas
ISIS adopts a Hamas terror tactic because it has gotten results.

EVELYN GORDON / APR. 5, 2017
The U.S. Army recently announced that it has horrifying video footage of Islamic State fighters herding Iraqi civilians into buildings in Mosul. The plan was not to use them as human shields–that is, to announce their presence in the hope of deterring American airstrikes. Rather, ISIS was deliberately trying to ensure that American troops killed them, by “smuggling civilians into buildings, so we won’t see them and trying to bait the coalition to attack,” an army spokesman said at a briefing for Pentagon reporters. The motive, he explained, was hope that massive civilian casualties would produce such an outcry that the U.S. would halt airstrikes altogether.

There’s an important point to this story which the spokesman neglected to mention: This tactic is borrowed directly from Hamas. And it was borrowed because the world’s response to successive Hamas-Israel wars convinced ISIS that creating massive civilian casualties among residents of its own territory is an effective strategy.

Admittedly, Hamas hasn’t yet been caught on video actually herding civilians into buildings before launching attacks from them. But there’s plenty of evidence that Hamas prevented civilians from leaving areas whence it was launching rockets or other attacks at Israel, thereby deliberately exposing them to retaliatory strikes.

During the 2014 Gaza war, for instance, the Israel Defense Forces warned civilians to evacuate the town of Beit Lahiya before launching air strikes at Hamas positions. But according to Palestinian human rights activist Bassem Eid, who based himself on interviews with Palestinians in Gaza, Hamas gunmen showed up and warned that anyone who left the town would be treated as a collaborator. Since Hamas executes collaborators, that was equivalent to saying that anyone who tried to leave would be killed on the spot. Thus, faced with the alternative of certain death at Hamas’s hands, most Beit Lahiya residents understandably opted to stay and take their chances with the IDF.

There’s also plenty of evidence that Hamas deliberately launched attacks from buildings where it knew civilians were present. Just last month, for instance, I wrote about a case during the 2009 Gaza war in which Hamas directed sniper fire at Israeli troops from the third floor of a well-known doctor’s home, thereby forcing the soldiers to choose between becoming sitting ducks or shooting back and risking civilian casualties. Unbeknownst to the soldiers, Hamas was also storing explosives in the house (using civilian buildings as arms caches or wiring them with explosives is standard practice for Hamas). Consequently, when the soldiers fired at the Hamas position, an unexpectedly large explosion ensued, killing three of the doctor’s daughters and one of his nieces.

In short, Hamas repeatedly used tactics aimed at maximizing the number of civilian casualties on its own side. Yet instead of blaming Hamas for this, the world largely blamed Israel. Mass demonstrations were held throughout the West condemning Israel; there were no mass demonstrations condemning Hamas. Journalists and “human rights” organizations issued endless reports blaming Israel for the civilian casualties while ignoring or downplaying Hamas’s role in them. Western leaders repeatedly demanded that Israel show “restraint” and accused it of using disproportionate force. Israel, not Hamas, became the subject of a complaint to the International Criminal Court.

Hamas thereby succeeded in putting Israel in a lose-lose situation. Either it could let Hamas launch thousands of rockets at Israeli civilians with impunity, or it could strike back at the price of global opprobrium.

Alan Dershowitz, who aptly calls this the “dead baby strategy,” has been warning for years that unless it “is exposed and rejected in the marketplace of morality, it’s coming to a theater (or school or hospital) near you.” After all, why wouldn’t other terrorist organizations adopt a strategy that has so obviously proven successful?

Now, ISIS has proven his point: It has chosen to deliberately sacrifice civilians rather than employing the more obvious tactic of using them as human shields. Granted, the organization enjoys killing, but based on its track record, it’s also far from stupid. So if it has concluded that dead civilians are more useful than living human shields, it’s because, like Hamas, it considers this a win-win strategy. At worst, America’s reputation will be tarnished, since many people worldwide will blame it for the civilian casualties rather than putting the blame on ISIS, where it belongs. And at best, negative public opinion will force America to abandon the airstrikes altogether.

Nor is the latter hope as far-fetched as it may seem at first glance. It’s true the “dead baby strategy” never persuaded Israel to stop airstrikes against Hamas, but there’s a fundamental difference between the two cases: Israel’s citizens were under direct attack by Hamas rockets and tunnels, and in a choice between sacrificing its citizens’ lives and suffering global opprobrium, any self-respecting country would choose the latter. But ISIS isn’t launching rockets at America from Mosul; the threat it poses is far less immediate. Consequently, the incentive for America to simply back away from the fight if the civilian death toll climbs too high is much greater.

In short, by blaming Israel for civilian casualties that were actually deliberately caused by Hamas’s actions, the world ensured that other terrorist organizations would adopt a similar strategy. Or to put it more bluntly, it ensured that many more civilians would die, because terrorist groups would see a profit in their deaths.

ISIS obviously bears primary blame for all civilian deaths in Mosul. But a portion of that blame is shared by every journalist, “human rights” activist, politician and demonstrator who blamed Israel rather than Hamas for civilian deaths in Gaza–because they are the ones who persuaded ISIS that deliberately sacrificing civilians is an effective way to fight a war.

Re: ISRAEL BREAKING NEWS

A delegation of Egyptian Jews and a representative of the American Jewish Committee (AJC) are heading for Cairo at the end of April to talk to the country’s Ministry of Culture about the one-time Jewish community’s cherished life cycle registers.
Scores of bound volumes, containing every detail of the births, marriages and deaths of Jews from Alexandria and Cairo, which date back to the middle of the 19th century, were once kept in the two main synagogues in each city. But, last year, without prior warning, government officials arrived at the synagogues and took away the registers, which are now stored in the Egyptian National Archives.
Rabbi Andrew Baker of the AJC said: “For many Egyptian Jews these are the only formal records which might otherwise be inscribed in civil records. And there are cases where they are very important in proving a person’s Jewish identity, for burial or for marriage”.
One of the leaders of the Nebe Daniel organisation, Yves Fedida, who is part of the forthcoming Cairo delegation, said that the scattered community of Egyptian Jews — some of whom depend on the information in the registers to prove their Jewish status — had been trying to persuade the government for more than 12 years to allow copies to be made of the contents of the registers.
At first, the government resisted, saying that there was a chance that Jews outside Egypt would use the information for compensation claims. But this was dismissed by the Egyptian Jews as stonewalling, because the registers did not contain details of property ownership.
“Then came the Arab Spring and there was no hope of persuading anyone in the government when the Muslim Brotherhood were in charge”, Mr Fedida said.
Once President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi took power, however, there was new optimism, but so far there has been no response either to direct pleas or to a change.org petition to the president.
Rabbi Baker said that although “one problem has been solved by taking the registers into the National Archives, where they will be kept in better physical conditions”, in fact it meant another problem.
“The registers are not just written in Arabic, but in French, Ladino, Hebrew, and even a form of Rashi’s script. So the records cannot be easily read by a National Archives official even if someone applies for his or her family’s details.”
Under the Egyptian Antiquities law, the registers belong to the country — an attitude originally supported by the leader of the tiny remaining Jewish community, a handful of Jews led by Magda Haroun. She made it clear in various TV appearances that her intention was to leave the assets of the Jewish community to the government.
Ms Haroun initially agreed with the government’s position, but appears to have had a change of heart in the last year. She has helped to revive a former Egyptian Jewish charity, A Drop of Milk, and turned it into a heritage NGO whose aim is to curate the remaining Jewish communal assets with the approval of the Ministry of Culture. Plans are in place to transform the former Heliopolis Synagogue in Cairo into a national Jewish museum, with the hope that the precious registers will be available for consultation there.
Mr Fedida said: “We have lost our biggest treasure with the registers. They include, beside the precious records of births, marriages, and deaths, halachic rulings by Egyptian rabbis , who were said to be among the most pragmatic and least dogmatic of all those in the Mediterranean area.”
Most Egyptian Jews left the country in two waves, after 1948 and again after 1967. The biggest ex-pat Egyptian community is in Israel, but there are groups in France, Canada, the US, Brazil and the UK. Mr Fedida, who today lives in France, said: “It is a real injustice if we are not allowed access to the registers. We owe it to our parents and our grandparents to do whatever we can to persuade the Egyptian government to do the right thing”.

Jews Celebrate Mimouna Feast as Passover Ends [PHOTOS]
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz April 18, 2017 , 11:30 am

“Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses; for whosoever eateth that which is leavened, that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a sojourner, or one that is born in the land.” Exodus 12:19 (The Israel Bible™)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/Minouna-Feast.jpg
Traditional food from Moroccan Mimouna Feast (Photo Flash 90)
Jews bade a delicious farewell to the gastronomic austerity of Passover by celebrating a North African traditional Mimouna feast. Politicians from all parties took the opportunity to indulge while posing for photographers.

For an entire week, Jews around the world refrained from eating chametz (leavened bread), so when Passover ended, the best way to celebrate is with bountiful yummies. Mimouna, a post-Passover feast originating in Morocco, is held on the day that tradition holds the wealth of the drowned Egyptians washed up on the shore of the Red Sea for the Israelis to carry away.
In Morocco, on the afternoon of the last day of Passover, Muslim neighbors would bring to the homes of their Jewish neighbors, gifts of flour, honey, milk, butter and green beans to be used to prepare post-Passover chametz dishes.
In Israel, the Mimouna has become a popular annual happening featuring outdoor parties, picnics, BBQs, and politics: A central celebration in Jerusalem’s Sacher Park draws about 100,000 people.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu joined a Mimouna celebration in the city of Hadera. He said that despite starting as a Moroccan tradition, Mimouna “has turned into a holiday for all the ethnic groups.” Politicians form all across the political spectrum used the colorful celebration as a backdrop for photo opportunities, but Miri Regev, the outspoken Culture and Sports Minister who is of Moroccan descent, took it one step further, dressing up in traditional Moroccan garb.

Syria Claims US Airstrike Killed Dozens of Civilians
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz April 18, 2017 , 5:19 pm
“Blessed be Hashem my Rock, who traineth my hands for war, and my fingers for battle.” Psalms 144:1 (The Israel Bible™)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/isis-bomb.jpg

Claims that at least 30 Syrian civilians were killed on Tuesday when US warplanes hit an ISIS target in Syria have raised concerns that a renewed and aggressive approach to the war on terror may come at an unacceptable human cost.

The US military acknowledged that it had carried out 19 airstrikes in the Raqqa region on Tuesday, but denied knowledge of civilian casualties. This is the second time in one week that the US has been accused by Syria of killing non-combatants.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Tuesday that coalition warplanes struck the town of al-Bukamal in the south of the province near the Iraqi border, killing three militants and 13 civilians, and seven civilians in the town of al-Husainiyah.
Last week, the Syrian government claimed that 49 people were killed in American airstrike on Al Jinah, a village in western Aleppo Province. United States officials claimed al-Qaeda were in the building hit by the airstrike, but residents said the warplanes struck a mosque.
President Donald Trump is giving the military more leeway in aggressively fighting terror groups in the region, while also opposing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Three weeks ago, Assad used sarin gas in an attack that killed almost 90 Syrians. The US responded with a missile strike targeting the airbase from which the chemical strike originated.Last Thursday, the US dropped its largest non-nuclear bomb on an Islamic State (ISIS) target in Afghanistan.

New Evidence Proves Allies Knew of Nazi Death Camps Much Earlier Than Previously Thought
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz April 18, 2017 , 4:42 pm

“They have said: ‘Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Yisrael may be no more in remembrance.’” Psalms 83:5 (The Israel Bible™)

Newly released documents from the United Nations show that the Allies had full knowledge the Nazis were killing Jews en masse at least one full year before America even joined the Allied forces in World War II, much earlier than previously thought.
The Independent published an article on Tuesday about the newly published Human Rights After Hitler. The author, Dan Plesch told The Independent, “The major powers commented [on the mass murder of Jews] two-and-a-half years before it is generally assumed. “It was assumed they learned this when they discovered the concentration camps, but they made this public comment in December 1942.”
The documents were being held in an archive by the United Nations War Crimes Commission. They could only be accessed by obtaining permission from the person’s own national government, and also that of the UN Secretary General. Even then, for several years researchers were not permitted to make notes. Former American ambassador to the UN Samantha Powers took the action that made the archive available.
Plesch said that according to the documents, first-hand testimonies of concentration camp inmates were smuggled out in order to inform the Allied powers. Plesch said that despite this foreknowledge, the Allied Powers did little to try and help the Jews of Europe escape genocide.
Plesch stated that the efforts of the US envoy to the United Nations War Crimes Commission (UNWCC), Herbert Pell, were hampered by anti-Semites in the US State Department. Pell eventually went public with his accusations after the war, forcing the State Department to the prosecute the Nazi leadership at Nuremberg. This also became unavoidable after the highly publicized liberation of the concentration camps in the summer of 1945. Plesch maintains that many in the State Department were concerned that America’s economic relationship with Germany after the war would be damaged if these prosecutions went ahead.
“Among the reason given by the US and British policy makers for curtailing prosecutions of Nazis was the understanding that at least some of them would be needed to rebuild Germany and confront Communism, which at the time was seen as a greater danger,” Plesch wrote in his book.

Despite 3,500 security personnel in Jerusalem for the Christian and Jewish holidays, a Palestinian terrorist stabbed a 20 year old British female to death on Jerusalem’s light rail train.

Jamil al-Tamimi, a 57-year old Arab resident of Jerusalem from the Ras al-Amud neighborhood, began the attack around 12:45 Friday afternoon inside the train near the Jaffa Gate, stabbing Hannah Bladon in the chest several times. An off-duty policeman pulled the emergency brake and subdued Tamimi. A pregnant woman in her early 30’s and a man in his 50’s were also injured in the attack.

Moments before the attack, Bladon had given up her seat on the train to a woman with young children, putting herself next to the attacker.
