Netanyahu Asks Major Rabbi to Pray Trump
Will Be Good for Jews
By JNI Media January 23, 2017 , 9:30 am
“For what great nation is there, that hath God so nigh unto them, as Hashem our God is whensoever we call upon Him?” Deuteronomy 4:7 (The Israel Bible™)

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday night attended the last day of the Shiva (mourning) week for the late mother of the Belzer Rebbe (Rabbi), Rabbi Yissachar Dov Rokeach, in Jerusalem, B’Hadrei Haredim reported. Netanyahu, who was accompanied by MK Israel Eichler (UTJ), who is a Belzer Chassid, thanked the Rebbe for the support he has been receiving from the MK, to which the Rebbe responded, saying, “I told Rabbi Eichler that it’s been years since we last had a prime minister who knew how to stand up to the world like you.” He added, “It’s all in the hands of Heaven.”

The PM told the Rebbe that “we had a big miracle that we’re over a difficult time in the US. Now a new president has been elected and we should pray that he will be good for the Jews and for Israel.”

Responding to a question from the Rebbe, Netanyahu described in some detail the great danger Israel faced from Iran, and his tough mission of going to the American Congress to warn the entire world about the Iranian menace, a menace not only to Israel but to the whole planet.

“Everyone was against it, including friends who warned me against appearing before the Congress,” Netanyahu told the Rebbe, “but we succeeded in convincing the whole world there was danger. It wasn’t easy, but we did the maximum,” the PM said, noting that he got two-thirds of the Congress to support him, which “I can’t get in our country.”

Netanyahu told the Rebbe he and his family study the weekly Torah portion every week, saying it’s what gives him strength in facing difficulties and challenges. “Without faith I couldn’t face the whole world,” Netanyahu said.

The Rebbe blessed the PM to succeed in leading the country upon calm waters, that there won’t be a split in the nation, and that none would be able to harm them.

2017 Will Be "Particularly Bloody",
Warns Counter-Terrorism Expert
By JNI Media January 23, 2017 , 12:30 pm
“For every boot stamped with fierceness, and every cloak rolled in blood, shall even be for burning, for fuel of fire.” Isaiah 9:4 (The Israel Bible™)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/bloody-knife.jpg

Former Chief of the General Security Service (GSS) Counter-Terrorism Bureau Brig. Gen. (res.) Nitzan Nuriel told Israel Defense Sunday that he expects 2017 to be a “particularly bloody year, especially for the western world.”

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/2Nitzan-Nuriel.jpg

Noting that after decades in which the world has grown accustomed to uncontrolled terrorism in Iraq, Syria and Africa, Nuriel believes that Islamist terrorism will now flood Europe as a result of ISIS’ defeat in Iraq and Syria. He points to the ambition of ISIS to convince the world that the “Islamic State concept is invincible,” which will intensify attacks in Europe.

ISIS’ European infrastructure already exists, Nuriel explains, with sufficient arms in their possession and the capacity to replenish them independently when needed. He believes “it is no longer a question of ‘whether’ but a question of ‘when and how much,’” since the Caliphate has already issued its directives for the attack on the West.

The retired counter-terrorism expert also anticipates renewed Hezbollah activities in the West against Jewish and Israeli targets following the anticipated end of the civil war in Syria – where the Shiite Hezbollah ahs been fighting alongside the Assad regime against the Sunni rebels.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/207-LIBI%20fight%20terror%20banner%202.jpg
Incidentally, Nuriel does not expect that increasingly brutal Islamic attacks on European civilians will necessarily generate more sympathy for Israel. However, he expects professional cooperation among state security experts to improve, as the Europeans will have better and better reasons to rely on Israel’s vast experience of dealing with Islamic terrorism.

At home, Nuriel predicts that the nationalist uprising among Israeli Arabs would eventually force the Israeli government’s hands and it could be pushed to resort to control methods that have been abandoned as far back as 1966.
Under an uninterrupted succession of Labor-led coalition governments, Israeli Arabs were subject, from 1949 to ’66, to martial law. Travel permits, curfews, administrative detentions, and expulsions were common. The Absentee Property Law of 1950 facilitated taking control of fleeing Arab land owners, and the Land Acquisition Law of 1953 authorized the Ministry of Finance to transfer expropriated land to the state. Other common legal expedients included the use of emergency regulations to declare land belonging to Arab citizens a closed military zone, followed by the use of Ottoman legislation on abandoned land to take control of the land.

Israeli Leaders Welcome President Trump With Open Arms

Israeli and American-Jewish leaders congratulated President Donald Trump on his swearing-in Friday, as the new Republican commander-in-chief promised an “America First” agenda in his inaugural speech.
“Congrats to my friend President Trump,” Netanyahu wrote on Twitter. “Look forward to working closely with you to make the alliance between Israel and the United States of America stronger than ever.”

New US Ambassador Will Live in Jerusalem
By Andrew Friedman January 22, 2017 , 8:30 am
“Great is Hashem, and highly to be praised, in the city of our God, His holy mountain.” Psalms 48:2 (The Israel Bible™)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/jerusalem-city.jpg

Incoming US ambassador David Friedman has announced that he will not reside in the official ambassador’s residence in Herziliya upon assuming office. Instead, he will live in the large apartment he owns in the Talbiyeh section of Jerusalem.
It is unclear whether the decision is intended to fulfill President Donald Trump’s campaign promise to move the American embassy to Jerusalem. Palestinian officials have threatened to declare the Israel-Palestinian peace process “dead” should the new administration carry through on the promise, and several sources close to the president have said in recent weeks that Friedman may “fulfill” the promise by maintaining the ambassador’s office in the capital but leaving the rest of the diplomatic staff at the embassy compound on Yarkon Street in Tel Aviv.

Media reports indicated that Friedman will take up the role as ambassador in February, but he has yet to be confirmed by the Senate. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and pro-settlement groups in Israel and the United States welcomed the nomination thanks to Friedman’s oft-stated support for right-wing Jewish causes in Israel, but liberal groups in both countries have pressed Democratic and Republican senators to oppose the nomination for the same reason.
In order to block the nomination, all Senate Democrats and at least three Republicans would have to vote against confirmation.

Trump, Netanyahu Plan First Meeting
to Cement New, Stronger Ties
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz January 22, 2017 , 4:07 am
“The princes of the peoples are gathered together, the people of the God of Abraham; for unto God belong the shields of the earth; He is greatly exalted.” Psalms 47:10 (The Israel Bible™)
On Saturday, his first official day as president, Donald Trump visited the headquarters of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in Langley, Virginia, taking the opportunity to declare war on the Islamic State (ISIS).

Trump’s connection with the intelligence service is up in the air, as the senate decision regarding his candidate to head the agency, Mike Pompeo, was delayed until Monday. Trump took the opportunity to plug his choice for director.
“I met [Mike Pompeo] and I said, ‘He is so good.’ … People like him, but much more importantly to me, everybody respects him… You will be getting a total star, you’re going to be getting a total gem. This is a gem,” Trump said. “You’ll see… And many of you know him anyways, but you’re going to see.”
During the campaign, the CIA, along with other intelligence agencies, alleged that Russia hacked Hillary Clinton’s email server, thereby interfering with the elections. At the time, Trump was critical and questioned the agency’s claims. At the meeting on Saturday, Trump blamed the press for misrepresenting his opinion of the agency

Trump, the Pistol and the Olive Branch
By Caroline Glick January 18, 2017 , 9:00 am
With a gun on his hip, on November 13, 1974, PLO chief Yasser Arafat stood before the UN General Assembly and made the West an offer that it didn’t refuse.

At the end of a long speech in which he rewrote history to erase all connection between the Jewish people and the Land of Israel and criminalized the very notion of Jewish freedom, Arafat declared, “Today I have come bearing an olive branch and a freedom fighter’s gun. Do not let the olive branch fall from my hand. I repeat: Do not let the olive branch fall from my hand.”

Arafat’s offer has served since that time as the foundation of European relations with the Palestinians and the wider Islamic world. It has also been the basis of US-PLO relations for the better part of the past four decades.

His trade was simple and clear.

If you stand with the PLO in its war to annihilate Israel and deny Jewish freedom, then PLO terrorists and our Arab state supporters will leave you alone.

If you refuse to join our war against the Jewish state, we will kill you.

Today, Arafat’s successor, Mahmoud Abbas, is reiterating Arafat’s offer.

image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/BIN-OpEd-Experts-300x2501.png
Speaking Saturday at the Vatican after the Holy See decided to recognize “Palestine,” Abbas said that if US President-elect Donald Trump goes ahead with his plan to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem, it will “fuel extremism in our region, as well as worldwide.”

Abbas’s spokesman was more explicit. Saturday night, Osama Qawasmeh, spokesman for Abbas’s Fatah PLO faction and member of Fatah’s Revolutionary Council, said that if the US moves its embassy to Israel’s capital city, “The gates of hell will be opened in the region and the world.”

Abbas and Qawasmeh also said that the PLO expects that members of the international community will make Trump see the light and abandon his plan.

French President Francois Hollande’s “peace conference” on Sunday was the international community’s way of fulfilling Abbas’s demand.

As multiple commentators have noted, the conference’s purpose wasn’t to promote the prospects for peace. It was to constrain Trump’s policy options for handling the Palestinian war against Israel.

By bringing together representatives of some 70 countries to insist that Israeli homeowners are the moral equivalent of Palestinian terrorists, Hollande and his comrades hoped to box Trump into their PLO-compliant policy.

Spelling out the demand Trump is required to accept, French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc-Ayrault parroted the Palestinian threats.

Asked by the French media Sunday if moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem would provoke the Palestinians, Ayrault said, “Of course.”

He then demeaned Trump’s plan to move the embassy as nothing but the regular bluster of American politicians.

In his words, “I think he [Trump] would not be able to do it. It would have extremely serious consequences and it’s not the first time that it’s on the agenda of a US president, but none has let himself make that decision.”

Ayrault is correct about Trump’s predecessors.

To one degree or another, since the early 1970s, successive US administrations have joined the Europeans in selling Israel down the river to prevent Arafat’s minions from pointing their guns at the American people.

Like the Europeans, the Americans have upheld their side of this bargain even when the PLO failed to uphold its end. For instance, in 1973 Arafat ordered his terrorists to storm the Saudi Embassy in Khartoum and take US ambassador Cleo Noel, his deputy, George Curtis Moore, and Belgian diplomat Guy Eid hostage. Arafat then ordered his henchmen to murder the diplomats after then president Richard Nixon rejected his demand to release Robert F. Kennedy’s Palestinian murderer, Sirhan Sirhan, from prison.

Instead of responding to the execution of US diplomats by siding with Israel against the PLO, the US covered up and denied the PLO’s responsibility for the attack for the next 33 years.

The US is still covering up for the PLO’s murder of US embassy personnel in Gaza in 2003. At the same time, it is providing the PLO with nearly three quarters of a billion dollars in direct and indirect annual aid, including the training and provision of its security forces.

The Europeans for their part have egged the US along throughout the years. France has generally led European efforts to convince the Americans to side with Palestinian as well as Hezbollah terrorists in their war against Israel in the name of “peace.”

Sunday morning, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu dismissed the Paris conference as a “futile” relic of a period that is about to end.

Netanyahu said that the conference’s goal of boxing Israel into an untenable framework for dealing the Palestinians was nothing more than the “final palpitations of a yesterday’s world.”

“Tomorrow,” he intoned, “will look a lot different. And tomorrow is very close.”

Trump will take office on Friday. Since he was elected, he has given every reason to believe that Abbas and his deputies and their European and American enablers will have to either put up or shut up.

Speaking of the president-elect, Henry Kissinger said that Trump is the first man in recent memory who doesn’t owe anybody anything for his victory.

The only people he is answerable to are the voters who elected him.

Trump’s electoral victory owes to his success in tapping into the deep reservoir of popular disaffection with the elitist culture and policies that have governed post-Cold War West. He has used the mandate he received from American voters to revisit the basic assumptions that have driven US policies for the past generation.

His skepticism at NATO and the EU are examples of his refusal to simply accept the received wisdom of his predecessors. Just this weekend he told Germany’s Bild magazine that he continues to question the purpose of NATO, which is a drag on US taxpayers and doesn’t fight terrorism.

He similarly restated his ambivalence toward the EU and that its open border policy has been a “catastrophic failure,” and he expects more countries to follow Britain’s lead and exit the EU.

Trump’s position on the PLO and the Palestinian war on Israel is of a piece with his wider rejection of the common wisdom of Western elites. Just as he didn’t hesitate to say that the EU mainly serves as an instrument for Germany to dominate the European market, so he has made no mystery of his rejection of the moral equivalence between Israel and Palestinian terrorists which forms the basis of the twostate formula.

Not only won’t Trump join the Obama administration and the French in criminalizing Israeli homeowners, Trump is celebrating them. He has invited the leaders of Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria – that is, the so-called “settlements” – to attend his inauguration.

And he appears dead serious about moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem.

Under these circumstances, Israel has the opportunity and the obligation to end the PLO’s ability to threaten the US, not to mention itself. It is Israel’s duty to ensure that the next time the PLO tries to exact a price in blood for America’s refusal to abide by the terms of Arafat’s blackmail, his terrorist group is finally destroyed.

Similarly, Israel is now obliged to take the lead and abandon the PLO-friendly two-state policy, which blames Israel for Palestinian terrorism, and adopt a strategy that works in its place.

Netanyahu has refused to consider any alternative until after Barack Obama is out of office.

Consultations must be scheduled for Saturday night.

Breaking the Silence Official: Attacking IDF Soldiers ‘Not Terrorism’
Shooting and stabbing IDF soldiers is not terrorism because they are occupiers, an official from the anti-IDF group Breaking the Silence said.

An official from Breaking the Silence (BtS), a radical left-wing NGO that publicizes testimonies allegedly given by of former IDF soldiers in order to spread criticism of the Israeli military, was reportedly caught saying that he does not consider attacks on IDF soldiers to be terrorism.

Israel’s Channel 20 reported that Nadav Weiman, the public relations coordinator of BtS, recently told activists, “If you shoot at soldiers, you are trying to kill soldiers. You are not a terrorist.”

“If there is another country that is conquering your country, the area where you live, you are allowed to use violent means to fight the conquering entity, only…against soldiers and police officers, but if you stab a soldier at a checkpoint, that is not a terrorist attack,” Weiman said.

Weiman reportedly made the statement to undercover activists for a right-wing Israeli organization, Ad Kan, who were posing as far-left activists in order to penetrate BtS. The undercover activists had been documenting the group’s activities for some time, taking part in preparations, lectures and tours of Judea and Samaria.

The exposure of BtS comes as the Israeli Knesset is considering a bill aiming to prohibit members of the group from speaking at educational institutions.

“I never could have imagined anything like this. As a citizen, as education minister, as a soldier and commander, I feel a special obligation to instill the desire to serve in the IDF and love the country,” Israeli Education Minister Naftali Bennett said.

Acting on Behalf of Foreign Governments
Breaking the Silence, an anti-Israel organization is comprised of veteran IDF combatants who have served since the start of the Second Intifada and are ostensibly committed “to expose the Israeli public to the reality of everyday life in the Occupied Territories.”

They are financed by foreign bodies and countries, including an organization operating within the Palestinian Authority (PA)-administered territories

Breaking the Silence received $1,352,500 through the governments of Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Ireland, Norway, Spain, Switzerland, Sweden, the UK and the EU in 2015.

Between 2008 and 2014, the anti-Zionist New Israel Fund gave Breaking the Silence a total of $707,300.

It also received $303,500 and an additional emergency grant from the Palestinian Fund Secretariat for Human Rights and International Law, operating out of PA-controlled Ramallah—which noted in its 2015 report that it paid Breaking the Silence to bring them at least one negative testimony against the IDF.

While claiming that their goal is to “raise awareness over the everyday reality of serving in the [so-called] occupied territories and to create a discussion about the cost of military control over a civilian population for so many years,” the NGO refuses to post the names of the soldiers who testify.

They have also refused to pass along their accounts to the IDF’s Military Advocate General’s Corps for investigation, despite repeated requests by senior IDF officials. Instead, Breaking the Silence members routinely go abroad to spread their allegations instead of taking their complaints directly to the IDF or civilian courts.

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, President-elect Donald Trump’s pick for ambassador to the United Nations, harshly criticized the world body over its “long history of anti-Israel bias” in testimony Wednesday to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Haley was also highly critical of President Barack Obama’s decision to refuse to veto last month’s U.N. Security Council resolution condemning Israel for its settlement policy, which she called a “terrible mistake.” She pledged to reject future U.N. measures that unfairly target the Jewish state.

Haley said she will not go to the U.N. and “abstain when the U.N. seeks to create an international environment that encourages boycotts of Israel.” She also said she is “absolutely” in favor of the U.S. moving its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Israeli Ambassador to the U.N. Danny Danon thanked Haley for her “unequivocal support” of Israel and her willingness to confront discrimination against the Jewish state at the world body.

“We look forward to working together with her to undo the damage done by the shameful Security Council resolution, and to lead towards a new era at the U.N. which includes real reforms that will put an end to the biased obsession with Israel,” Danon said.

Haley Supports Moving US Embassy to Jerusalem

Scientists Discover How Joshua ‘Stopped the Sun’

“Thou art the God that doest wonders; Thou hast made known Thy strength among the peoples.” Psalms 77:14 (The Israel Bible™)

Three researchers from Ben Gurion University believe they have discovered the scientific explanation behind the miraculous Biblical account of the sun standing still for Joshua during battle. Though their solution may not be miraculous, their approach is a symbiotic marriage of science and the Bible.

Dr. Hezi Yitzchak, Dr. Daniel Weistaub, and Dr. Uzi Avneer, of Ben Gurion University in Israel’s Negev, released the results of their study last week in Beit Mikra, a Hebrew language journal for the study of the Bible. In the study, they suggest that the miracle of the sun standing still when Joshua fought five armies in order to help the Gibeonites was actually attributable to natural causes – namely, a solar eclipse.

In chapter ten of the Book of Joshua, the Israelites go to war against five kings in order to help the Gibeonites, with whom they had signed a pact. While Israel was prevailing in the battle, God sent down stones from heaven to smite the enemy. Joshua prayed for the sun to stand still in order to have time to complete the victory. God answered his prayer.

And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the nation had avenged themselves of their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jashar? And the sun stayed in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day. Joshua 10:13

Using data from NASA tracking astronomical events, the team of scientists ascertained that the only solar eclipse which occurred during the period when the Jews are believed to have entered Israel was on October 30, 1207 BCE. Though the Bible mentions other cases of the sun standing still, the story in the Book of Joshua is unique in that it also mentions the role the moon plays in the process. This led the scientists to conclude that the Bible was relating a case of a solar eclipse, in which the moon comes between the earth and the sun.

One glaring difficulty for the scientists’ theory is that the Bible describes the sun lingering in the sky for an extended period of time. Their explanation, a solar eclipse, is precisely the opposite: the sun disappearing at a time it normally appears in the sky. The scientists resolve this contradiction using Hebrew etymology.

The description of the event in the Book of Joshua uses the word דֹּם (dom), usually understood as ‘stand still’. The word is only used in one other place in the Bible.

Resign (דּוֹם) thyself unto Hashem, and wait patiently for Him… Psalms 37:7

The scientists concluded that the word דֹּם (dom) actually means ‘to become dark’.

Though this explanation may seem unlikely at first glance, the report cited several classical Jewish sources which state the event described in the Book of Joshua was actually a solar eclipse.

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

Most notably, it quotes Rabbi Moses ben Maimon, commonly known as Maimonides, a prominent 12th century Spanish Torah authority. In his book, The Guide to the Perplexed, the Rambam understood the case in Joshua to be a visible phenomenon rather than an extension of time, based on the verse stating that it was done in a visible manner.

Then spoke Yehoshua to Hashem in the day when Hashem delivered up the Amorites before Bnei Yisrael; and he said in the sight of Israel… Joshua 10:12

The Rambam reasoned that this was a case of the rays of the sun standing still, or being stopped, as in a solar eclipse.

Rabbi Avraham Arieh Trugman, director of Ohr Chadash Torah Institute, accepted the results of the study with equanimity. Rabbi Trugman cited a fable attributed to Rabbi Yisroel ben Eliezer, known as the Baal Shem Tov, who founded the influential Hassidic movement in the 18th century.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/rabbi-trugman-300x250-150x150.jpg

Rabbi Arieh Trugman (Courtesy)
The story tells of a scientist who approached the Baal Shem Tov, saying he could explain the Red Sea splitting when the Jews came out of Egypt by attributing it to an exceptionally high flood tide. The scientist described all of the astronomic conditions necessary to create such a tide, stating that although it was indeed rare, it was entirely reasonable to expect such an occurrence.

The Baal Shem Tov was said to have responded by exclaiming, “It’s a miracle! A miracle! At the very moment that Israel needed to cross the Red Sea, there was this unique conjunction of the stars.”

Rabbi Trugman explained his understanding of the story to Breaking Israel News.

“Despite the fact that in many different areas people want to pit science against Torah, what is much closer to the truth is that in most cases there is no conflict between science and torah,” said Rabbi Trugman. “It is very common to find many areas in which there exists an amazing confluence of secular knowledge and Torah wisdom.”

Though some may disagree with the study’s methods and some of their conclusions, the scientists’ conclusion that the Bible can be an accurate sourcebook for history will find favor with the Biblically-minded.

“Not everyone likes the idea of using physics to prove things from the Bible, and I know that it may be interpreted as if you are rationalizing your faith,” Dr. Yitzhak told Haaretz on Sunday. “We do not claim that everything written in the Bible is true or took place… but there is also a grain of historical truth that has archaeological evidence behind it.”

The scientists also located what they believe is the location of the battle and the 18-mile path the Hebrew soldiers trekked overnight in order to launch a surprise attack in the morning. They concluded that it was actually the region between the city of Jericho and Gilgal, a type of gathering site mentioned in the Bible in several places.

The article in Beit Mikra did not address the “great stones” and “hailstones” the Bible describes as being responsible for killing more of the enemy than died in the actual battle.

WATCH: New US Ambassador to the UN Vows Never to Abstain from Anti-Israel Resolutions
Trump’s nominee as US ambassador to the UN slammed the world body’s bias against Israel, a US ally, vowing never to abstain from anti-Israel resolutions.

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, nominated by President-elect Donald Trump as US ambassador to the UN, slammed the world body for its “consistent” and “outrageous…bias against our ally Israel.”

“This cannot continue,” she stated.

Haley, the first governor to sign legislation combatting Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel, is the daughter of immigrants from India who reminded their children on a daily basis of their good fortune to be Americans. Her brothers served in combat duty.

Haley pledged never to abstain when the UN takes any action that comes in direct conflict with the interests and values of the US, such as anti-Israel UN Resolution 2334, which “was a terrible mistake.”

How to Bless the Messiah’s Arrival in Hebrew
By Tsivya Fox January 18, 2017 , 10:30 am

“For then will I turn to the peoples a pure language that they may all call upon the name of Hashem to serve Him with one consent.” (Zephania 3:9)

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/prayer-man.jpg
Jewish worshippers cover themselves with prayer shawls as they pray in front of the Western Wall, Judaism’s holiest prayer site, in Jerusalem’s Old City, during the Cohen Benediction priestly blessing at the Jewish holiday of Passover, April 25, 2016. (Yonatan Sindel/Flash90)
One of the basic tenets of Judaism is the belief that the messiah (Mashiach-מְשִׁ֥יחַ in Hebrew) can arrive at any moment. Three times a day, orthodox Jews pray that everything required for Mashiach’s arrival will happen imminently.

These include the ingathering of the Jewish people from the four corners of the world back to the Holy Land, the restoration of religious courts of justice, an end of wickedness, sin and heresy, reward to the righteous, the rebuilding of holiness in Jerusalem, and restoration of Temple services in the rebuilt third Holy Temple in Jerusalem.

“Jews and Christians alike often do not know that mashiach is a central theme in traditional Judaism,” stated Roni Segal, academic adviser for The Israel Institute of Biblical Studies, an online language academy specializing in Biblical Hebrew, to Breaking Israel News.

“This is due in part to the fact that Mashiach is not mentioned explicitly in the Torah. However, there are several references to the ‘End of Days’, called acharit ha-yamim, which our Sages teach refers to the messianic era.”

Mashiach literally means “the anointed one”. The mashiach will be a world-recognized leader and King whose status is achieved through being anointed with oil.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/476-Banner_Bell_600x150.jpg

“The Jewish idea of Mashiach is that this human being will bring the world to recognize the One God,” explained Segal.

Additionally, the Sages teach that in every generation a potential Mashiach is born. Therefore, it is incumbent upon all Jews to learn the special blessings which will be said upon his arrival.

There are seven blessings in all.

1. The blessing to recite when one hears that Mashiach has arrived:

Baruch Attah Adonoy Eloheinu Melech HaOlam HaTov V’HaMeiteiv.

ברוך אתה ה’ אלוהינו מלך העולם הטוב והמטיב

Blessed are You, the Lord our God, King of the universe who is good and does good.

2. The blessing to recite when one sees 600,000 Jewish people or more gather in one place to greet Mashiach:

Baruch Attah Adonoy Eloheinu Melech HaOlam chacham harazim.

ברוך אתה ה` אלוהינו מלך העולם חכם הרזים

Blessed are You, the Lord our God, King of the universe who knows all secrets.

3. The blessing to recite upon seeing the third Holy Temple in Jerusalem rebuilt (literally, seeing a Jewish home in Israel restored to its rightful owner):

Baruch Attah Hashem Eloheinu Melech HaOlam matziv gvul almanah.

ברוך אתה ה` אלוהינו מלך העולם ‫מציב גבול אלמנה

Blessed are You, the Lord our God, King of the universe who reestablishes a widow to her border.

The next blessings are recited upon actually seeing the Mashiach.

4. Baruch Attah Adonoy Eloheinu Melech HaOlam She’chalak M’kvodo L’rei’av.

ברוך אתה ה` אלוהינו מלך העולם שחלק מכבודו ליראיו

Blessed are You, the Lord our God, King of the universe who has granted His honour to those who fear Him.


5. Baruch Attah Adonoy Eloheinu Melech HaOlam She’chalak Me’chach-ma-toe l’rei’av.

ברוך אתה ה` אלוהינו מלך העולם שחלק מחכמתו ליראיו

Blessed are You, the Lord our God, King of the universe who has granted of His wisdom to those who fear Him.


6. Baruch Attah Adonoy Eloheinu Melech HaOlam go’el Israel.

ברוך אתה ה` אלוהינו מלך העולם גואל ישראל

Blessed are You, the Lord our God, King of the universe who redeems Israel.

7. Baruch Attah Adonoy Eloheinu Melech HaOlam shehechianu ve’kimanu ve’higeeyahu l’zman ha-ze

ברוך אתה ה` אלוהינו מלך העולם שהחינו וקימנו והגענו לזמן הזה

Blessed are You, the Lord our God, King of the universe who has given us life and sustained us and allowed us to reach this occasion.

“Learning these blessings in Hebrew helps to make the imminent arrival of mashiach a reality in our lives,” shared Segal with Breaking Israel News. “That amazing time in the world will be characterized by world peace and coexistence, may it happen speedily in our days.”

Obama Pardons General Who Leaked US-Israel Cyberattack on Iran’s Nukes
By JNI Media January 18, 2017 , 1:30 pm
“For Thy name’s sake, O Hashem, pardon mine iniquity, for it is great.” Psalms 25:11 (The Israel Bible™)

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/cartwright.jpg

President Barack Obama on Tuesday granted a full and complete pardon to former vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff retired four-star Marine Corps Marine General James E. “Hoss” Cartwright, who on October 17, 2016, pleaded guilty to falsely denying to the FBI that he was the source of classified information about US-Israeli cyberattack on Iran’s nuclear program, which was published in a book by David Sanger.

Obama on Tuesday also granted commutations to 208 other people and pardoned 64, including the commutation of most of the remaining sentence of US soldier Chelsea Manning, who had been convicted of leaking classified information to WikiLeaks.

On June 8, 2007, then Defense Secretary Robert Gates recommended Cartwright to be the next Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, replacing retiring Admiral Edmund Giambastian. Cartwright’s nomination was confirmed by the full Senate on August 3, 2007 and he assumed the position immediately upon confirmation.

Cartwright was awaiting his sentencing in two weeks, after pleading guilty to felony, when he received his pardon.
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/5-LIBI-General-600WIDE_withlogo.jpg

The senior White House official told the Washington Post that Cartwright’s long history of distinguished service to the nation factored into Obama’s decision. According to the same official, a journalist involved in the case testified that Cartwright did not tell him anything he didn’t already know, and that the general was actually trying to prevent “the publication of information that could be damaging to our national security.”

It appears that Cartwright inadvertently confirmed the reporter’s information, rather than leak it. “Motive matters,” the official told the Post. “It’s clear in this case that based on what the journalist has said . . . that General Cartwright’s motive was different than most of the people who are accused of leaking classified information to a journalist.”

Cartwright issued a statement Tuesday, saying, “With the greatest pride, I have served my country as a member of the military for more than forty years. This action allows me to continue that work as a private citizen. […] I love this country and believe it to be the greatest nation on earth. I have never lost faith in that belief.”

WATCH: Palestinian Official Admits "State in West Bank" Just Precursor to Taking Over Israel
By Abra Forman January 18, 2017 , 12:30 pm
“There was not a city that made peace with Bnei Yisrael, save the Hivites the inhabitants of Gibeon; they took all in battle.” Joshua 11:18 (The Israel Bible™)
Fatah Central Committee member Azzam Al-Ahmad. (Screenshot)
The establishment of a Palestinian state in the West Bank is only a pretext for Palestinians to take over all of Israel, said an official with Mahmoud Abbas’s political party, Fatah.

Azzam Al-Ahmad, a Fatah Central Committee member, told an interviewer on official Palestinian Authority (PA) state TV that a Palestinian state would simply be a stepping stone to a Vietnam-style conquest in which “Palestine” would swallow up the entire country of Israel.

WATCH: Fatah Official Says Palestinian State Will Take Over Israe
Fatah official: Palestinian state in West Bank will lead to "Palestine" taking Israel


In a video clip translated by Palestinian Media Watch, Al-Ahmad described a PA plan to “agree to a state on territory that is 22 percent, and perhaps less, of the land of historical Palestine”, and then eventually take over the territory it was not granted, which would “return my historical rights to me in full.”

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/402-pasted%20image%200.png

He pointed to historical precedent as a support for the plan: North Vietnam’s bloody 20-year war to capture South Vietnam and unite both states under one name.

“North Vietnam. There was a north and the south. What is its name now? Vietnam!” he declared.

Israeli leaders have often warned that giving Palestinians an autonomous state beside Israel, the ultimate goal of the two-state solution, would present very serious security concerns for Israel rather than encouraging Palestinians to give up violence and terror. The Gaza Strip, which was handed over to Palestinian control in 2005 only to almost immediately devolve into an enclave controlled by the terror group Hamas, is seen as proof that “land for peace” is a farcical assumption

Abbas Meets Pope, Opens Official Palestinian Embassy in Vatican
By JNI Media January 15, 2017 , 7:30 am
“For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of deceit have they opened against me; they have spoken unto me with a lying tongue.” Psalms 109:2 (The Israel Bible™)

PA President Mahmoud Abbas met Pope Francis in Rome on January 14, 2017. (Screenshot)
On Saturday, Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas met with Pope Francis at the Vatican and inaugurated the Palestinian Authority (PA) embassy there. As he was raising the black, red, white and green flag, Abbas called on the world’s leaders to recognize the State of Palestine when they get together in Paris on Sunday.

“Tomorrow, more than 70 countries will meet in Paris in order to discuss how to bring peace to our region, the holy land,” Abbas said. “We call upon the participants to take concrete measures in order to implement international law and UN resolutions.”

Abbas told reporters he discussed Jerusalem with the Pope, accusing the Israeli government of “turning Jerusalem into an exclusive Jewish/Israeli city, demolishing Palestinian homes, expanding illegal settlements, building an illegal Annexation Wall, dividing families, and isolating our occupied capital from the rest of Palestine.”

Regarding the next US Administration’s stated plan to move its embassy to Jerusalem, Abbas said that “Any attempts at legitimizing the illegal Israeli annexation of the city will destroy the prospects of any political process, bury the hopes for a two-state solution, and fuel extremism in our region, as well as worldwide.”

Speaking to Le Figaro on the eve of the Paris conference, Abbas threatened that, should President Trump go ahead with the embassy move as promised, “there would be several options for us, and we would discuss them with Arab countries.” He suggested that one of those options would be “reversing our recognition of the State of Israel.”

According to the Washington Post, PA leaders called on Muslim preachers on the Palestinian Authority payroll to dedicate their Friday sermons yesterday to opposing the US embassy relocation. The imams even received suggested talking points about the embassy move. The Post reported that the imam of the Jamal Abdel Nasser Mosque in Ramallah warned that moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem would “engulf the region in the flames.”

A draft of the Paris conference resolution obtained by AP says the conference will urge Israel and the Palestinians “to officially restate their commitment to the two-state solution,” but “will not recognize” changes, such as the establishment of a Palestinian State without Israeli agreement. The resolution will instead reiterate “that a negotiated solution with two states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace and security, is the only way to achieve enduring peace.”

German Court: Burning Synagogue Justified, No Punishment for Palestinian Arsonists
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz January 14, 2017 , 7:37 pm
“For I Hashem love justice, I hate robbery with iniquity; and I will give them their recompense in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.” Isaiah 61:8 (The Israel Bible™)

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/bible-fire.jpg
(Photo: Breaking Israel News)
Last Friday, a German regional court affirmed a lower court’s decision that firebombing a synagogue was not anti-Semitism, but a valid form of anti-Israel political expression.

Three German Palestinians threw firebombs at the Wuppertal synagogue in July, 2014, after consuming alcohol. No one was injured in the attack but the fire caused approximately $800 in damage. The local court said in its 2015 decision that the attack was not anti-Semitism. The court recorded that the three men, identified only as 31-year-old Mohamad E., 26 year-old Ismail A. and 20-year-old Mohammad A., wanted to draw “attention to the Gaza conflict” with Israel. The court gave the three suspended sentences.

Several days before the fire, a person spray-painted “Free Palestine” on a wall of the synagogue. The original synagogue in Wuppertal was burned by Nazi Germans during the Kristallnacht pogroms in 1938.

At the time of the arson attack, Israel was involved in an incursion into Gaza in response to hundreds of rocket and mortar attacks targeting urban centers.

After the local Wuppertal court decision in 2015, Volker Beck, a leading Green Party MP, said the “attack on the synagogue was motivated by antisemitism” and publicly criticized the court for its decision that the goal of the attack was due to the war in Gaza.

“This is a mistaken decision as far as the motives of the perpetrators are concerned,” he said, adding that the burning of a synagogue in Germany is clearly motivated by antisemitism.

“What do Jews in Germany have to do with the Middle East conflict? Every bit as much as Christians, non-religious people or Muslims in Germany, namely, absolutely nothing. The ignorance of the judiciary toward anti-Semitism is for many Jews in Germany especially alarming, ” said Beck.

Paris Peace Conference Pits 70 Nations Against 70 Sons of Jacob in Gog and Magog Showdown
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz January 16, 2017 , 2:27 pm

“And it shall come to pass in that day when Gog shall come against the land of Yisrael saith the Lord GOD that My fury shall arise up in My nostrils.” Ezekiel 38:18 (The Israel Bible™)

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/shutterstock_112616936-1.jpg

The Paris conference on Sunday, in which representatives from 70 nations met to sign an anti-Israel agreement, brought together many factors, all pointing at a final showdown that pits the 70 sons of Jacob against the 70 nations under Gog in a pre-Messianic war.

As the 70 nations gathered in Paris, many people were aware that the concept of 70 nations has its source in the 70 grandsons of Noah listed in the Bible.

These three were the sons of Noach, and of these was the whole earth overspread. Genesis 9:19

This Biblical concept of 70 nations reappears in ancient Jewish sources as the 70 nations that will rise up against Israel in the End of Days. The Talmud states that the gematria (numerical value of the Hebrew letters) of Gog and Magog (גוג ומגוג) is 70. Gog and Magog are the nations that will be defeated by Israel, ushering in the Messianic era.

And there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude; and they shall call it the valley of Hamon (multitude) –gog. Ezekiel 39:11

This internal aspect of 70 contained within Israel was made apparent while the 70 nations were meeting in Paris. On the very same day of the conference, Jews all around the world were reading the specific section of the Torah in the first chapter of the Book of Exodus relating how 70 souls, the offspring of Jacob, went down to Egypt.

And all the souls that came out of the loins of Yaakov were seventy souls; and Yosef was in Egypt already. Exodus 1:5

The 70 nations, unified under Gog, will face Israel. Israel, though only one nation, is composed of the 70 children of Jacob, as a counterpoint to the 70 nations under Gog.

John Kerry, the US Secretary of State, attended the Paris conference to protect the interests of President Obama. Even though he only has five more days in office, Obama is playing a central role in unifying the 70 nations against Israel.

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

Obama’s ability to unify is hinted at in numerology. Joel Gallis and Dr. Robert Wolf, who wrote extensively about Obama in their blog, Redemption 5768, noted the gematria of the president’s full name, Barack Hussein Obama (בּרק חוסיין אובּאמה), is 501, equal to the gematria of the word ראש (head, or leader). The type of leader he was is revealed through another calculation: Obama’s first term was as the 44th president of the United States, and the 44th word in the Torah is ולחשׁך (and to the darkness).

“The gematria of Barack Obama בּרק אובּאמה is 357, just one short of the 358 of Mashiach (Hebrew for messiah),” Gallis and Wolf noted. “But the one that is missing is Hashem, the Master of the Universe who is one. Without God on his side, he is nothing but a false messiah.”

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/barack-obama-1-150x150.jpg

In contrast, it could be understood that president elect Donald Trump (who is 70 years old) stands in direct juxtaposition to the Paris conference of 70 nations which came just five days before he will be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. The gematria of Trump’s full name in Hebrew (דונלד טראמפ) is 424, equal to ‘Messiah from the house of David’ (משיח בן דוד).

In an interview with Breaking Israel News before the elections, Rabbi Yosef Berger, the rabbi of King David’s Tomb on Mount Zion in Jerusalem, explained that the gematria indicates a connection between Trump and the Messiah, not that Trump himself is the Messiah.

“He is connected to the Messianic process which is happening right now,” Rabbi Berger said in November. “When he promised to move the American Embassy to Jerusalem, he attached himself to the power of Moshiach, which gave him the boost he needed.”

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/2016-11-26-trump-150x150.jpg


Donald Trump
This is also hinted at by Trump’s choice for ambassador to Israel: David Friedman, a strong supporter of Israel who advocates moving the US embassy to Jerusalem. In a remarkable coincidence, the gematria of Friedman’s name, דיוויד פרידמן, is also 424 and equal to ‘Messiah from the House or David”.

The meeting in Paris comes after the United Nations Security Council passed Resolution 2334, declaring it illegal for Jews to live in Judea, Samaria, the Golan, and Hebron. The resolution also grants a religious monopoly on the Temple Mount and the Western Wall to Islam.

The true nature of the UN resolution is also hinted at by numerology. Only Simchas, a religious website, wrote that 2334 in gematria is בגגד. In the rules of gematria, a repeated letter is for emphasis, turning בגגד into an emphatic בגד, which means ‘to betray’. By abstaining, US President Barack Obama betrayed his alliance with Israel, paving the way for the conference in Paris.

Senators Graham, Cruz Propose "Safeguard Israel Act" to Defund UN
By JNS January 16, 2017 , 7:30 am
“Hashem answer thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob set thee up on high.” Psalms 20:2 (The Israel Bible™)

U.S. Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) introduced a bill that seeks to cut off funding for the United Nations until U.N. Security Council Resolution 2334, which condemned Israel’s settlement policy, is repealed.

The bill—titled “The Safeguard Israel Act”—will cut off funding to the U.N. until the president certifies to Congress that Resolution 2334 has been repealed.

“Twenty-two percent of the money to fund the U.N. comes from the American taxpayer,” Graham said. “I don’t think it’s a good investment for the American taxpayer to give money to an organization that condemns the only democracy in the Mideast, and takes the settlement issue and says that’s the most important and only issue in terms of an impediment to peace.”

According to the senators, Resolution 2334 attempts to dictate terms and conditions for negotiations between the Israelis and Palestinians, which is “an abandonment of longstanding policy of the United States and previous commitments made to Israel.”

Additionally, Graham and Cruz said the resolution “falsely claims” that Israel’s sovereignty over the eastern part of Jerusalem and Jewish communities in the West Bank is illegal under international law, and that the Old City of Jerusalem—along with the Western Wall and Temple Mount, the holiest sites for the Jewish people—are ‘‘occupied Palestinian territory.”

“President [Barack] Obama betrayed decades of robust bipartisan American support for Israel at the United Nations by permitting the passage of a biased resolution that condemns our close friend and ally,” Sen. Cruz said.

https://unitedwithisrael.org/in-last-white-house-interview-obama-again-obsesses-about-israel/?utm_source=pushengage&utm_medium=push_notification&utm_campaign=pushengage
In his last interview as president, Obama again denigrated Israeli communities in the historic Jewish homeland.

The growth of Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria has “gotten so substantial” that it is inhibiting the possibility for an “effective, contiguous Palestinian state,” Barack Obama charged in his final interview as US president.

Speaking to CBS’ “60 Minutes” on Sunday, Obama dismissed the idea that there is a “major rupture” in the relationship between the US and Israel after last month’s decision by the US to abstain from a United Nations (UN) vote condemning Israel’s presence in Judea and Samaria and eastern Jerusalem.

“If you’re saying that Prime Minister Netanyahu got fired up, he’s been fired up repeatedly during the course of my presidency, around the Iran deal and around our consistent objection to settlements,” Obama said of Netanyahu’s reaction to his decision to abstain at the UNSC. ”So that part of it wasn’t new. And despite all the noise and hullabaloo– military cooperation, intelligence cooperation, all of that has continued. We have defended them consistently in every imaginable way. But I also believe that both for our national interests and Israel’s national interests that allowing an ongoing conflict between Israelis and Palestinians that could get worse and worse over time is a problem. And that settlements contribute. They’re not the sole reason for it, but they’re a contributing factor to the inability to solve that problem.“

“Because of our investment in the region, and because we care so deeply about Israel, I think (the US) has a legitimate interest in saying to a friend, ‘This is a problem,'” Obama said. “It would have long-term consequences for peace and security in the region and the United States.”

The outgoing president reflected on his legacy and his biggest challenges during his eight years in office during the hourlong interview. A number of his policies — from health care to his contentious relationship with Israel — could be short-lived as President-elect Donald Trump becomes the 45th president later this week and vows to reverse some of those policies.

Trump has accused Obama of throwing up “inflammatory” roadblocks during the transition of power as well as blaming his administration for treating Israel with “total disdain.”

Obama acknowledged it’s been an “unusual” transition, adding, “I suspect the president-elect would agree with that.”

Syria and the Scandal of Our Orthodox Synagogues
By Rabbi Dr. Nathan Lopes Cardozo
How dare we come before the Lord of the Universe with our personal prayers asking Him for His kindness and gifts when we ignore the enormous atrocities done to other human beings?
By Rabbi Dr. Nathan Lopes Cardozo January 9, 2017 , 8:00 am
Lord of the Universe, I beg You to redeem Israel; but if You do not want to do that, then I beg You to redeem the gentiles.” — Rabbi Yisrael Hopstein, Maggid of Kozhnitz and legendary Hassidic leader in Poland (1733-1814) (1)

When Rabbi Professor Abraham Joshua Heschel (1907-1972), the famous American Hassidic thinker who lived a fully Orthodox life, was once asked by a journalist “why he [as a religious leader] had come to a demonstration against the war in Vietnam,” he said “’I am here because I cannot pray’.…Confused and a bit annoyed, the journalist asked him, ‘What do you mean, you can’t pray so you come to a demonstration against the war?’” Rabbi Heschel replied, “’Whenever I open the prayer book, I see before me images of children burning from napalm’” (Susannah Heschel, Abraham Joshua Heschel: Essential Writings [Maryknoll, NY: Orbis Books, 2011] p. 17).

On another occasion, while walking with Martin Luther King Jr. in Selma, Alabama, at the famous civil rights march against racism, he felt a sense of holiness that reminded him of his younger years when he would walk with the great Hassidic rebbes in Poland. For him, the march was a deeply religious undertaking, a mitzvah. “I felt my legs were praying,” he said (Ibid p. 35).

His message was clear: We forfeit our right to pray when we become indifferent to the atrocities done to our fellow men (1).

Indeed, how dare we come before the Lord of the Universe with our personal prayers asking Him for His kindness and gifts, when we ignore the enormous atrocities done to other human beings?

“Prayer” said Rabbi Heschel, “must never be a citadel for selfish concerns, but rather a place for deepening concern over other people’s plight” (Susannah Heschel, idem, p. 17).

To this very day, we Jews are justifiably outraged beyond description when we remember how the world was silent as six million of our brothers and sisters — including more than one million Jewish children — were slaughtered during the years of the Holocaust. We feel great animosity toward Pius XII, Hitler’s pope, for failing to call on millions of his Catholic followers to protect the Jews and stand up against this ferocious murderer.

This came to my mind when I read about the terrible atrocities that are now being committed against hundreds of thousands of innocent Syrians, including tens of thousands of children, who are being killed and mutilated (not to mention the savagery and barbarity in so many other countries). No, this cannot be compared to the Holocaust, but the brutalities in Syria defy all description.

Fortunately, the government of Israel and members of the larger Jewish community in and outside of the State of Israel have not sat idle in the face of this crisis. They have arranged medical and financial help for the victims, organized solidarity marches and have been taking to the streets, and much more. What Jew would not join these noble acts?

Yet, one place that seems to be totally indifferent to what is happening in Syria and in other parts of the world is the Orthodox synagogue, the most Jewish place of all, and of which I am a proud member.

While I have been informed that synagogues of different denominations have introduced special prayers, it seems, as far as I have been able to investigate (and I hope I’m wrong!), that most Orthodox synagogues (including those in yeshivot) have failed to introduce any prayer, or even the reciting of Tehillim for the Syrian victims. These terrible atrocities have, in general, not even been mentioned. All we hear is thundering silence.

Orthodox Rabbi Yuval Cherlow of Petach Tikva, Israel, whom I consider to be a gadol ha-dor (a great religious and halachic leader of our generation), wrote a special prayer related to the Syrian catastrophe, but it seems to have been ignored by most if not all Orthodox synagogues.

Several months ago, a prayer for world peace was sent to thousands of people and hundreds of Orthodox synagogues, which, except for some hesder yeshiva students, was totally ignored by those Orthodox synagogues, including the Modern Orthodox. This prayer is a plea to God to have mercy on all victims of war, terror attacks, tsunamis, earthquakes, hurricanes, raging fires, tornadoes, starvation, homelessness, and population displacement. (2)

The only communities that responded were Reform and Conservative synagogues and, to the great surprise of many, several churches, the leaders of which said they would include the prayer in their services. (This prayer takes no more than a minute to recite.)

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/423-HNC-NewDesign-600WIDE.jpg

In the introduction to his magnum opus, Ha’amek Davar on the Torah, Rabbi Naftali Tzvi Berlin (1817-1893), the last rosh ha-yeshiva of the famous Volozhin Yeshiva, makes the powerful point that the greatness of our patriarchs Avraham, Yitzchak, and Yaakov, and no doubt the matriarchs, was the fact that they cared about the well-being of the gentiles in their day, even if they were idolaters. One example is the famous story of Avraham arguing with God to save the people of Sedom, who had fallen to the lowest possible level of moral behavior. Nothing stopped him from trying to save these people, even when it meant having to fight with God Himself (Bereishit 18: 23-33). No doubt this is why Avraham is called the “father of a multitude of nations” (Ibid 17:5). But this is not merely a compliment; it is a deeply religious mission for all the People of Israel. To be an example to the world, and to stand up for all those innocents who have fallen victim to the unspeakable evil of others.

It is for this reason that Rabbi Yosef Karo, in his monumental codex, the Shulchan Aruch (Orach Chayim 576:1), legislated the law that in times of catastrophe, one should fast and lessen one’s pleasures (including sexual intercourse), based on the talmudic statement:

“When the community is in trouble, a person should not say: I will go to my house, I will eat and drink and all will be well with me” (Ta’anit 11a).

This is not Reform or Conservative; it is Orthodox law. So why ignore this important ruling?

The worst sin toward our fellow human beings is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them. People are not aware of their own insensitivity. Conscious insensitivity is almost a contradiction in terms. But one begins to sincerely wonder whether that’s true when there is a call to our synagogues that is completely ignored.

Sure, the members of Orthodox synagogues are generally sensitive people, but they don’t seem to realize that as a community that believes in prayer, and constantly prays for its own welfare, they cannot stand idly by and fail to pray when great evil is heaped upon their fellow humans. I cannot think of a stronger form of narcissism.

The point is not whether our prayers for all these victims will be answered. That is left up to God. But the message we send to ourselves and our children is that we’re not even prepared to take the time during our synagogue service to draw our attention to the plight of thousands and thousands of children who are being killed, who have lost their arms and legs, and whose bodies have been burned beyond recognition.

How can we be outraged by the world’s silence in the face of six million of our brothers and sisters being murdered in the Holocaust when our synagogues can’t even take a moment to say a prayer for other human beings, especially children, who are suffering beyond imagination? Do we, the Orthodox, start praying only when the atrocities are as bad as the Holocaust? Or only when it relates to our fellow Jews?

Millions of people are occupied with physical pleasures, the need for honor and comfort, their hates and loves, all of which are for the most part not worth our time and energy. Yet synagogues refuse to take time for the real issues, which will determine the well-being of hundreds of thousands of innocent people.

As Jews, we realize that since the world has “failed to fight for right, for justice, for goodness; as a result we must fight against wrong, against injustice, against evil” (Abraham Joshua Heschel, I Asked for Wonder: A Spiritual Anthology, Samuel H. Dresner (Ed.) [New York: The Crossroad Publishing Company, 1983] p.95).

In all honesty, as an Orthodox Jew, I wonder how anyone can believe that God will listen to our prayers, when we can’t spare even one minute to pray for the women and children of Syria and the millions of others living in unimaginably devastating circumstances.

Maybe it would be more honest to stay at home and forfeit our right to pray. When we become indifferent to the atrocities done to our fellow humans, then, as Rabbi Heschel teaches us, we had better be silent and live in shame.

As American actor and author William Redfield (1927-1976) once said, “To try may be to die, but not to care is never to be born” (The Book of Bill: Choice Words, Memorable Men, Tom Crisp (Ed.) [Kansas City, MO: Andrews McMeel Publishing, LLC, 2009] p. 72).

The “No Scandals” Obama Administration Revisited
By Roger Aronoff
Fast & Furious, the IRS targeting scandal, Benghazi, and the Veterans Administration scandal are but a taste of President Obama’s scandal-ridden leadership.
The “No Scandals” Obama Administration Revisited
By Roger Aronoff January 8, 2017 , 10:00 am
No matter how many times it is disproved, members of the Obama administration and the liberal media continue to claim that President Barack Obama has overseen a scandal-free executive branch during his two terms in office. Nothing could be further from the truth. Fast & Furious, the IRS targeting scandal, Benghazi, and the Veterans Administration scandal are but a taste of President Obama’s scandal-ridden leadership.

The latest in the voices declaring Obama scandal-free is senior advisor Valerie Jarrett, who said recently on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS” that “The President prides himself on the fact that his administration hasn’t had a scandal and that he hasn’t done something to embarrass himself. But that’s not because he’s being someone other than who he is. That’s because that’s who he is, that’s who they are, and I think that’s what really resonates with the American people.” A fawning Zakaria also asked Jarrett about Obama’s “cool,” “discipline,” and “dignity” on his January 1 show, which was entitled “Voices From the Obama Years.” “Over the last few months, we have had extraordinary access to the White House, to officials current and former. It was all for a documentary about President Obama’s legacy,” said Zakaria.

With President Obama set to step down this month and give way to soon-to-be President Donald Trump, the media are even more eager to contrast the current President with his already demonized successor.

As we have reported, both token New York Times conservative David Brooks and former Obama senior advisor David Axelrod have also claimed that Obama’s tenure has been scandal-free. While this assertion is pure fiction, it continues nonetheless. It is a convenient way of dismissing, if not covering up, Obama’s dishonesty, incompetence and corruption. The perpetuation of this lie demonstrates that the media and the Obama administration are living in a reality constructed entirely by themselves, one that ignores any information that might damage Obama’s legacy.

A key counterpart to the elevation of Obama is the necessary criticism of his successor. Thus, the Times’ Paul Krugman writes in his recent column that Trump is bringing America down to “stan” status, a third-world country label which indicates a runaway personality cult and despotism by rich elites. “But cults of personality are actually the norm in the ‘stans,’ the Central Asian countries that emerged after the fall of the Soviet Union, all of which are ruled by strongmen who surround themselves with tiny cliques of wealthy crony capitalists,” Krugman writes.

Friday 13th January 2017: Israel Missile Strike On Syrian Military Airport Killed 'Regime' Officials According To Reports; Rockets Reportedly Hit Weapons Depot At Mazzeh Airbase Friday; Syrian Military Official Threatens ‘Repercussions’. A military strike on an airbase near Damascus blamed on Israel killed high-ranking Syrian officials, activists there said Friday, according to a Saudi report. Activists quoted by the al-Arabiya news outlet said several high-ranking officials in the regime of Syrian president Bashar Assad were killed in the bombing on the military airport to the southwest of Damascus. There was no confirmation of the reports.
The Syrian state-run Sana news agency blamed the explosions that rocked the airport early Friday morning on Israeli missiles, and reported a fire, but no injuries. “At 3:00 a.m., the Israeli enemy fired several surface-to-surface missiles from inside occupied territory,” the state news agency SANA said, citing a military source. It claimed the missiles had been fired from near the Sea of Galilee. The regime source also threatened “repercussions” against Israel over the “flagrant” strikes. Several local media outlets reported ambulances were dispatched to the scene. The Lebanese al-Meyadeen news outlet reported that the strike targeted a weapons depot at the strategic base, wounding four soldiers. Mazzeh is located near Assad’s presidential palace and has been used by troops and elite forces to shell rebel-held areas during the country’s civil war.

Palestinian Embassy Opening in Vatican City on Eve of Evil International Decree

“Thus saith the Lord GOD: Woe unto the vile prophets that follow their own spirit and things which they have not seen!” Ezekiel 13:3 (The Israel Bible™)
On Friday, just two days before 70 nations gather in Paris to vote on an anti-Israel decree, a new embassy for the Palestinian Authority will be inaugurated in Vatican City. This will be the first Palestinian embassy to be established in a European Union member nation.

PA President Mahmoud Abbas will meet with Pope Francis on Saturday. This will be the third time the two have met. When they met last year, Pope Francis referred to Abbas as “an angel of peace‘. When confronted, the Holy See explained that this was an error in translation and the Pope had atually intended to encourage Abbas to make peace with the Israelis. As head of the PA, Abbas has been accused of inciting violence against Jews. Abbas is also the chairman of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) which was recognized by Israel and the US as a terror organization until 1991.

The Palestinian representative office in Vatican is one of 98 Palestinian diplomatic and consular representations abroad. The Palestinian representative office is one of 86 foreign representations in the Holy See (Vatican City), and one of 86 foreign representations in Vatican City. Israel does have an embassy in Vatican City, but the Vatican Embassy in Israel is in Tel Aviv. The Vatican has an embassy to Palestine located in East Jerusalem.
The Vatican officially recognized a Palestinian State almost two years ago.

Trump Secretary of State Pick Reveals Unknown Stance on Israel by Slamming UN Resolution
By JNS January 12, 2017 , 7:30 am

“Open thy mouth, judge righteously.” Proverbs 31:9 (The Israel Bible™)

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/rex.png


Donald Trump’s secretary of state pick Rex Tillerson at his Senate confirmation hearing, January 11, 2016. (Screenshot)
In his Senate confirmation hearing Wednesday, former ExxonMobil CEO and Secretary of State-designate Rex Tillerson said that a “two-state solution” is an “aspirational goal” to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but he also shed doubt on whether or not it could come to fruition.

“I think [the ‘two-state solution’] is the dream that everyone is in pursuit of,” Tillerson said in his hearing with the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. “Whether it can ever be a reality remains to be seen.”

Tillerson, whose views on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict were previously unknown, said the two-state plan “has to be a shared aspiration of all of us. I think it’s the State Department’s role to try and create an environment that brings parties together that want to find a way forward. I can tell you that under the conditions today, it’s extremely challenging to do that, but that has to be the aspirational goal.”

President-elect Donald Trump’s secretary of state appointee also singled out the Palestinians for the current deadlock in the peace process with Israel.

“I would say in the case of the Palestinian leadership, while they have renounced violence, it is one thing to renounce it and another to take concrete action to prevent it,” Tillerson said.

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

“I think until there is a serious demonstration on their part and they are willing to do more than just renounce violence, they are willing to do something to at least interrupt it or interfere with it, it is very difficult to create conditions at the table for parties to have any productive discussion around a settlement,” he added.

Tillerson was also asked for his thoughts on the recent United Nations Security Council resolution condemning Israel for its settlement policy, and whether or not the measure disproportionately blamed Israel for the conflict.

“Israel is, has always been and remains our most important ally in the region,” he said. “The U.N. resolution that was passed, in my view, is not helpful. It actually undermines a good set of conditions for talks to continue.”

Regarding the Iran nuclear deal, Tillerson said he would recommend “a full review of that agreement” with President-elect Trump, adding that “the real important question is what comes at the end of this agreement.”

Iran Ordered to Pay $178 Million to Family of Infant Terror Victim
https://unitedwithisrael.org/iran-ordered-to-pay-close-to-200m-to-family-of-infant-terror-victim/?utm_source=pushengage&utm_medium=push_notification&utm_campaign=pushengage
“This judgement sends a clear message that there is a very heavy price to be paid for financing terrorism and spilling innocent blood in the streets of Jerusalem,” said Darshan-Leitner on the ruling against Iran.

The family of a three-month-old baby girl, Chaya Zissel Braun, who was murdered in a Palestinian car-terror attack on Jerusalem’s light rail in October 2014, won a stunning $178,500,000 US court judgment against Iran and Syria in January.

Iran and Syria had provided material support to the Hamas terror organization, which perpetrated the attack.

The lawsuit – Braun, et al v. Islamic Republic of Iran, et al – was filed in the District of Columbia District Court by the Israel Law Center- Shurat HaDin on behalf of Braun’s parents and grandparents, pursuant to the terrorism exception to the foreign sovereign immunities act.

The lawsuit details how Hamas terrorist Abdel Rahman Shaludi intentionally drove his car onto the light-rail tracks when Chana and Shmuel Braun were getting off the train with their baby daughter and rammed his vehicle into the crowd of pedestrians.

The Brauns were on their way home from their first visit to the Kotel, the Western Wall, with their baby when the car struck. Shaludi’s vehicle struck the baby’s stroller, causing her to be thrown some 10 meters into the air before landing on her head on the pavement while her mother screamed in horror. She was pronounced dead some two hours later.

The terror attack also claimed the life of Karen Mosquera, 22, and badly injured Chaya Zissel’s father.

Hamas publicly praised the attack, referring to the terrorist as a “martyr” and ”son” of Hamas.

The Court found that the attack was carried out by Hamas, and that both Iran and Syria were liable to the plaintiffs on the basis of the massive material support they had provided to the terrorist organization over the years. It awarded damages to Chana and Shmuel Braun as representatives of the estate of Chaya Zissel Braun as well as for their own injuries.

The Court also awarded damages to the parents of Chana and Shmuel Braun for their mental anguish resulting from their children being targeted in a terror attack.

Braun was a US citizen living in Israel at the time of her murder. She was the long-awaited and beloved daughter of her young parents who had finally conceived a child after trying for quite some time since their marriage.

Attorney Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, head of Shurat HaDin, stated that “the criminal regimes in Tehran and Damascus are the biggest state sponsors of terrorism is the world. This judgement sends a clear message that there is a very heavy price to be paid for financing terrorism and spilling innocent blood in the streets of Jerusalem.”

She vowed that her organization will “relentlessly pursue the Islamic Republic and Syria through all legal avenues in order to ensure that these judgements are enforced and that the terror victims achieve a measure of justice.”

Israel Remains ‘Our Most Important Ally’ in the Middle East, US Secretary of State Designate Affirms
At his hearing with the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Secretary of State designate Rex Tillerson blasted the Obama administration, stressing that Israel is America’s “most important ally” in the Middle East.

Former ExxonMobil CEO and Secretary of State-designate Rex Tillerson, at his Senate confirmation hearing on Wednesday, sided with Israel and blasted the Obama administration for its foreign policies.

“I think [the ‘two-state solution’] is the dream that everyone is in pursuit of,” he said, but “whether it can ever be a reality remains to be seen.”

Tillerson, whose views on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict were previously unknown, said the two-state plan “has to be a shared aspiration of all of us. I think it’s the State Department’s role to try and create an environment that brings parties together that want to find a way forward. I can tell you that under the conditions today, it’s extremely challenging to do that, but that has to be the aspirational goal.”

He also singled out the Palestinians for the current deadlock in the peace process with Israel.

“I would say in the case of the Palestinian leadership, while they have renounced violence, it is one thing to renounce it and another to take concrete action to prevent it,” Tillerson said.

“I think until there is a serious demonstration on their part and they are willing to do more than just renounce violence, [until] they are willing to do something to at least interrupt it or interfere with it, it is very difficult to create conditions at the table for parties to have any productive discussion around a settlement,” he added.

This view stands in stark contrast with the Obama administration’s policies, which tended to place the onus on Israel.

Asked about the recent United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolution condemning Israel for its policies in Judea and Samaria, Tillerson stated, “Israel is, has always been and remains our most important ally in the region. The UN resolution that was passed, in my view, is not helpful. It actually undermines a good set of conditions for talks to continue.”

As for Secretary of State John Kerry’s speech defending the US’ abstention at the vote, he found it “quite troubling because of the attacks on Israel and in many ways undermining the government of Israel itself in terms of its own legitimacy and the talks.”

Regarding the Iran nuclear deal, Tillerson said he would recommend “a full review of that agreement” with President-elect Donald Trump.

Polish Christians Face Off Against Neo-Nazi Agitators at Pro-Israel Rally
Polish Christians Face Off Against Neo-Nazis in Support of Israel
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz January 9, 2017 , 1:30 pm
“For Tzion’s sake will I not hold My peace, and for Yerushalayim’s sake I will not rest, until her triumph go forth as brightness, and her salvation as a torch that burneth.” Isaiah 62:1 (The Israel Bible™)

In a small gathering with enormous significance, 130 Christians from 15 different churches braved the sub-freezing weather in Warsaw on Sunday, facing off against neo-Nazi protestors, to support Israel against the United Nations Security Council resolution declaring the Jewish presence in Judea, Samaria, and the Temple Mount illegal.

Fundacja Pojednanje, or the Reconciliation Foundation, a group of pro-Israel Polish churches, called for the rally, saying in a statement, “The passing of this resolution was made possible by the fact that the faithful ally of Israel, the USA, abstained from voting. This resolution sets a dangerous precedent. It opens the door to the enemies of Israel, to terrorist organisations. Therefore, we must not remain silent. Indifference and silence are the worst reaction.”
Pastor Edward Ćwierz, head of the foundation and pastor of the Tent of David Church in Warsaw, called those gathered to action, saying, “We’re here to make Poland resound with the voice of justice, like the sound of the shofar! The voice of dissent overt injustice! The voice of support and solidarity with the people of Israel. We must understand that this UN resolution is anti-Semitic, and we, as Polish Christians, oppose anti-Semitism!”

"We Must Hide Our Jewish Identity on Campus", US Students Tell Knesset
US Students: We Must Hide Our Jewish Identity on Campus

“O Hashem, the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup, Thou maintainest my lot.” Psalms 16:5 (The Israel Bible™)

Jewish students are refraining from expressing support for Israel on campuses in the US and Europe due to their fear of anti-Semitism, students told the Knesset Committee for Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Affairs, according to an official report issued Monday.

A survey presented by the Ministry of Diaspora Affairs showed that in 2015 some 9,000 verbal anti-Semitic attacks were reported on Facebook; 11,354 on Twitter; and 4,468 on Instagram. In addition, 4,465 anti-Semitic video clips were posted on YouTube. It was also found that 40 percent of Europe’s citizens are anti-Semitic and 75 percent of Jewish students in the US were attacked for anti-Semitic reasons.

Jewish students living abroad told the committee that anti-Semitism and the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement are causing them to conceal their Jewish identity (some keep their yarmulkes in their pockets) and their pro-Israel positions.

Committee Chairman MK Avraham Neguise (Likud) said, “Today, mainly on academic campuses dominated by extreme liberalism, anti-Semitism is disguised as condemnation of the Jewish State. It is fueled by hatred towards the State of Israel.”

Hamas Celebrates ISIS-Related Truck-Ramming Terror Attack
By JNS January 9, 2017 , 7:30 am
“The wicked plotteth against the righteous, and gnasheth at him with his teeth.” Psalms 37:12 (The Israel Bible™)
A screenshot of a security camera footage capturing the moment before a truck-ramming terror attack in Jerusalem Sunday which killed four Israeli soldiers. (Screenshot)
A truck-ramming attack that killed four Israeli soldiers in their early 20s and injured at least 16 people at a Jerusalem bus stop Sunday was likely carried out by a supporter of the Islamic State terror group, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said.

“We know the identity of the attacker, and according to all the signs he is a supporter of Islamic State,” Netanyahu said while visiting the scene of the attack, adding that the terrorist act was similar to truck-rammings in Europe such as in Nice and Berlin during the past year.

A large truck, captured on security camera footage, is seen plowing into a group of Israeli soldiers who had exited a bus in Jerusalem’s Armon Hanatziv neighborhood, then reversing direction and running the bodies over again. Killed in the attack were four Israeli soldiers: Yael Yekutiel, 20, Shir Hajaj 22, Shira Tzur, 20, and Erez Orbach, 20. The terrorist, who was shot dead at the scene, was later identified as Fadi al-Qanbar from the eastern Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabel Mukaber, which borders the Armon Hanatziv neighborhood where the attack took place.

“We will overcome this terror, just as we overcame other attacks,” Netanyahu said. “There are a number of actions that we will not specify at this time, which we will have to take to ensure that incidents such as these do not recur.”

A spokesman from the Palestinian terror group Hamas quickly praised Sunday’s car-ramming attack, saying Hamas “welcomes the brave and heroic operation in Jerusalem” and calling the attack a “natural reaction to the Israeli crimes and violations against our people, land and holy sites.”

Hamas holds rally in Gaza to celebrate terrorist ramming that killed 4 Israelis
http://www.jpost.com/Arab-Israeli-Conflict/Hamas-holds-rally-in-Gaza-to-celebrate-terrorist-ramming-that-killed-four-Israelis-477860
"The message of our Islamic party Hamas is a message of encouragement and support for every jihadi who carries out an attack that puts an end to the acts of the Zionist enemy."
Hamas rally in Gaza following a terrorist truck ramming in Jerusalem that killed four Israelis
s and supporters took to the streets of Jabalya refugee camp in Gaza on Sunday night to rally against Israel and praise the terrorist ramming attack in Jerusalem which killed four Israelis.

Earlier on Sunday, a Palestinian rammed his truck into a group of Israeli soldiers on a popular promenade in Jerusalem, killing four of them in an attack which Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said had likely been inspired by Islamic State.

Chanting anti-Israeli slogans the protesters marched to the rally where sweets were handed out in celebration.

"The message of our Islamic party Hamas is a message of encouragement and support for every jihadi who carries out an attack that puts an end to the acts of the Zionist enemy," Hamas leader Fathi Hamad, who led the rally, told Reuters.

The Palestinian Islamist group routinely praises those who carry out street attacks against Israelis.

The Palestinian attack in Jerusalem was the deadliest in months and targeted officer cadets as they disembarked from a bus that brought them to the Armon Hanatziv promenade which has a panoramic view of the walled Old City.

The military said an officer and three officer cadets were killed and that 17 others were injured.

Police identified the truck driver as a Palestinian from east Jerusalem and said he was shot dead. His uncle, Abu Ali, named him as Fadi Ahmad Hamdan Qunbor, 28, a father of four from the Jabel Mukabar neighborhood.

Following the attack, Netanyahu said that access limitations were imposed in and around the east Jerusalem neighborhood and that further actions will be taken by Israel.

Late on Sunday, police were seen patrolling the area and stopping vehicles for checks. Palestinians threw fireworks at the forces, but no casualties were reported.

Actions inspired by Islamic State in Israel, the West Bank and Jerusalem have been rare and only a few dozen Arab Israelis and Palestinians are known to have declared their sympathy with the group.

A wave of Palestinian street attacks, including vehicle rammings, has largely slowed but not stopped completely since it began in October 2015 and 37 Israelis and two visiting Americans have been killed in these assaults.

Israel has cut funding to UN bodies that operate against the Jewish state.

Israel announced on Friday that it will suspend about $6 million in funding to the United Nations (UN) in an “act of protest” against the recent UN Security Council vote that condemned Israel’s presence in Judea and Samaria.

The Israeli government explained that the decrease in the country’s $40 million in total funding for the UN symbolically represents a cut to the portion of the UN budget that is allocated to anti-Israel bodies, including the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People; the Division for Palestinian Rights; the Work of the Special Committee to Investigate Israeli Practices, and the Special Information Programme on the Question of Palestine of the UN Department of Public Information.

“It is unreasonable for Israel to fund bodies that operate against us at the UN,” Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon said in a statement. “We seek to stop the practice where the UN is used solely as a forum for unending attacks against Israel.”

Israel’s announcement comes a day after the US House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed a resolution condemning the Security Council’s anti-Israel vote.

The anti-Israel resolution stated that Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria, “occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem,” have “no legal validity.” It demands a halt to “all Israeli settlement activities,” saying this “is essential for salvaging the two-state solution.”

Instead of casting a veto to support Israel, as is traditional US policy, US Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power abstained, allowing the Council to approve the resolution in a 14-0 vote.

Some American lawmakers have also called for cuts in US funding for the world body.

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) threatened to campaign for a bipartisan consensus in Congress that would punish those who pushed for the resolution with a cut in US aid— as well as the UN itself, which relies on generous congressional appropriations.

Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) Tom Cotton (R-AK) and James Lankford (R-OK) signaled support for Graham’s initiative.

Likewise, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) called on the US to withhold funding to the UN until it reverses the resolution.

American funding accounts for 22 percent of the UN budget.

Horrific Terror Truck-Ramming in Jerusalem Leaves Four Young Soldiers Dead [VIDEO]
By Abra Forman January 8, 2017 , 10:30 am

“And they shall come against thee with hosts chariots and wheels and with an assembly of peoples; they shall set themselves in array against thee with buckler and shield and helmet round about.” Ezekiel 23:24 (The Israel Bible™)

At least four young IDF soldiers were killed and 15 others injured when an Arab-Israeli terrorist rammed a truck into a group walking on Jerusalem’s Armon Hanatziv promenade on Sunday, turning the picturesque attraction overlooking the Old City into a scene of terror and devastation.

The group, largely made up of soldiers, was exiting a bus at the promenade when the driver of a flatbed truck aimed his vehicle at them, accelerating as he went, police said.

According to the driver of the bus which had let the victims off moments before the attack, the truck driver “drove into the group of [people], ran over them and kept going. [They] shot at the driver. He reversed and ran over them again.”

The terrorist, reported to be an Israeli Arab from East Jerusalem, was killed on the scene, shot down through the windshield of his vehicle. When paramedics arrived, they found over a dozen troops injured, several seriously; some were trapped beneath the truck.

Three women and one man, all soldiers in their early 20s, were among those murdered.

Over a dozen wounded were sent to area hospitals, including a seriously injured woman in unstable condition. Four others were moderately wounded and another 10 victims were in light condition.

The outing to the Haas Promenade, organized by the IDF, was part of the army’s “Culture Sundays” program, which exposes soldiers to sites of historical and national importance throughout the country. The popular tourist site, located in the southern part of the city, offers a stunning panoramic view of Jerusalem and the Old City.

In May, the promenade was the scene of a stabbing terror attack in which two elderly women were attacked and moderately wounded.

The style of the attack closely echoes the recent truck-ramming in Berlin which claimed twelve lives last month. An Israeli man was seriously injured and his wife killed when a terrorist driving a large truck plowed into a Christmas market full of shoppers.

Sunday’s incident marks the most fatal terror attack against Israelis since June, when two Palestinian gunmen opened fire on Tel Aviv’s Sarona market, murdering four and wounding 17.

Israeli Spy Satellite Spots Advanced Russsian Missiles in Syria

It was announced on Friday that an Israeli Eros-B spy satellite spotted a stockpile of Russian made advanced Iskander SS-26 short-range mobile ballistic missiles on trucks inside an army base in the Syrian Army’s Latakia base, in western Syria.

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

The satellite images seem to prove that Russia has provided Syria with a wide array of the most advanced missiles in its possession. The SS-26, referred to as ‘Stone’ by NATO, is able to destroy air defense and missile defense systems as well as other targets at a distance of 400-500 kilometers. The Iskander is capable of carrying a nuclear warhead. This places Haifa, Jerusalem, and Tel Aviv within striking distance, though experts say the missiles are under control of Russian forces, and not the Syrian Army.

It is believed that heavy rains forced the Russians to move the missile systems, thereby exposing them to satellite photography.

Kerry Warns Moving US Embassy to Jerusalem will ‘Explode’ Region

January 7, 2017

US Secretary of State John Kerry warns of a regional “explosion” if the US moves its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, echoing warnings of a senior Palestinian official last Sunday.

US Secretary of State John Kerry claimed on Friday that if President-elect Donald Trump follows through on his promise to move the US embassy in Israel, from Tel Aviv to the capital of Jerusalem, it would lead to a conflagration of chaos throughout Israel and the Middle East.

“You’d have an explosion, an absolute explosion in the region, not just in the West Bank, and perhaps even in Israel itself, but throughout the region,” Kerry said in an interview with CBS.

“If all of a sudden, Jerusalem is declared to be the location of our embassy, that has issues of sovereignty, issues of law that would deem to be affected by that move and by the United States acquiescing in that move and that would have profound impact on the readiness of Jordan and Egypt to be able to be supportive and engaged with Israel as they are today,” continued Kerry.

Kerry’s remarks follow those of senior Palestinian Authority official Sultan Abu al-Einein, a Fatah Central Committee member, who suggested on Sunday in an interview with Egypt’s Alghad TV channel that Palestinians must prepare for a confrontation with Trump regarding his intention to move the US embassy to Jerusalem.

During Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to the US in September, Trump “acknowledged that Jerusalem has been the eternal capital of the Jewish People for over 3000 years, and that the US, under a Trump administration, will finally accept the long-standing Congressional mandate to recognize Jerusalem as the undivided capital of the State of Israel,” according to Trump’s campaign website.

Since his election in November, Trump has made several moves signalling his plan to follow through with his stated intention to move the US embassy to Jerusalem, including his nomination of David Friedman as US Ambassador to Israel. Friedman is a strong proponent and advocate of moving the US embassy to what he refers to as the “undivided Israeli capital of Jerusalem.”

At the same time, several members of the US Senate have already introduced the Jerusalem Embassy and Recognition Act,which like the Jerusalem Embassy and Relocation Act enacted in 1995, calls for the US embassy in Tel Aviv to be moved to Jerusalem. An essential component of the legislation that was passed in 1995 granted the president the opportunity to sign a six-month waiver postponing a move of the US embassy to Jerusalem.

Every American president since the passing of the Jerusalem Embassy and Relocation Act has continuously signed six-month waivers, claiming that moving the embassy to Jerusalem would hinder the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

The current bill under consideration removes the waiver option and would obligate the president to move the US embassy to Jerusalem.

Abbas Tells Trump Moving Embassy is ‘Aggressive, Crosses Red Line'

January 7, 2017

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas wants President-elect Trump to abandon his “aggressive” plan to move the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas on Friday referred to US President-elect Donald Trump’s stated intention to move the US embassy in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem as an “aggressive statement.”

“We call on you not to implement your statement because we consider it as an aggressive statement, when you say that you want to move the embassy to Jerusalem,” Abbas sad.

Abbas also said, according to the Palestinian news agency Wafa, that such a move was a “red line” that the PA would never accept.

The PA chairman also claimed that not only would the peace process between Israel and the PA be affected but world peace as well.

“We heard a lot of statements relating to moving the US embassy, which we hope are not correct and will not be implemented, but if implemented then the peace process in the Middle East, and even peace in the world, will be in a crisis we will not be able to come out from,” he argued.

Abbas’s remarks echo those of outgoing US Secretary of State John Kerry who warned of a regional “explosion” if the US embassy is moved to Jerusalem, and follow those of a senior Palestinian official last Monday who called for Palestinians to plan for a confrontation with Trump in this regard.

In contrast to the assertions of Abbas and Kerry, Trump’s nominee for US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman said that he looks forward to advancing “the cause of peace within the region…from the US embassy in Israel’s eternal capital, Jerusalem.”

Marc Zell, Co-Chairman of Republicans Overseas Israel, supports the move.

“Mr. Trump and Mr. Friedman can move the US Embassy to Jerusalem with zero effort and zero US taxpayer dollars,” said Zell.

“Here’s how: First, the US law on the books, passed under President Bill Clinton, states that America must move its Embassy to Jerusalem. Every 6 months since that law was passed, each President – most recently Barack Obama just a few days ago – signed a waiver to, in effect, override US law,” Zell continued.

“All Mr. Trump has to do, in less than six months, is nothing. The US law, which is in effect now, will not be overridden, and the US Embassy can be moved to Jerusalem the next day.”

“And it will cost zero US taxpayer dollars,” added Zell. “All they need to do is change the sign on the US Consulate in Jerusalem to say ‘US Embassy.’”

Senator Ted Cruz, who recently introduced a bill to obligate the president to recognize Jerusalem as the Jewish capital by moving the embassy there, released a statement saying,

“Unfortunately, the Obama administration’s vendetta against the Jewish state has been so vicious that to even utter this simple truth – let alone the reality, that Jerusalem is the appropriate venue for the American embassy in Israel – is shocking in some circles.”

“But it is finally time to cut through the double-speak and broken promises and do what Congress said we should do in 1995: formally move our embassy to the capital of our great ally Israel,” Cruz concluded.

Obama and Israel, Strike and Counter-Strike
By Caroline Glick
UN Security Council Resolution 2334 was the first prong of outgoing President Barack Obama’s lame duck campaign against Israel. US Secretary of State John Kerry’s speech on Wednesday was the second. On January 15, stage 3 will commence in Paris.
At France’s lame duck President François Hollande’s international conference, the foreign ministers of some 50 states are expected to adopt as their own Kerry’s anti-Israel principles.
The next day it will be Obama’s turn. Obama can be expected to use the occasion of Martin Luther King Jr. Day to present the Palestinian war to annihilate Israel as a natural progression from the American Civil Rights movement that King led 50 years ago.
Finally, sometime between January 17 and 19, Obama intends for the Security Council to reconvene and follow the gang at the Paris conference by adopting Kerry’s positions as a Security Council resolution. That follow-on resolution may also recognize “Palestine” and grant it full membership in the UN.
True, Kerry said the administration will not put forward another Security Council resolution.
But as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu explained in his response to Kerry’s address, there is ample reason to suspect that France or Sweden, or both, will put forth such a resolution. Since the draft will simply be a restatement of Kerry’s speech, Obama will not veto it.
Whether or not Obama gets his second Security Council resolution remains to be seen. But whether he succeeds or fails, he’s already caused most of the damage. A follow-on resolution will only amplify the blow Israel absorbed with 2334.

Kerry Speech will Make Peace with the Palestinians Much Harder
By Alan Dershowitz
Kerry has lost all credibility with Israelis across the political spectrum. This is why his speech wasn’t even aired live on Israeli TV.
What if the Secretary of State gave a policy speech and no one cared? Because Secretary Kerry’s speech came after its abstention on the Security Council vote, few in Israel will pay any attention to anything he said. Had the speech came before the abstention, there would have been some possibility of it influencing the debate within Israel. But following the US abstention, Kerry has lost all credibility with Israelis across the political spectrum. This is why his speech wasn’t even aired live on Israeli TV.
The speech itself was as one-sided as the abstention. It failed to mention the repeated offers from Israel to end the occupation and settlements, and to create a Palestinian state on the West Bank and Gaza: Arafat’s rejection of the Clinton-Barak proposals in 2000-2001: and Abbas’ failure to respond to the Olmert offer in 2008. To fail to mention these important points is to demonstrate the bias of the speaker.
Kerry also discussed the Palestinian refugees, without even mentioning the equal member of Jewish refugees from Arab and Muslim countries. If Palestinian refugees deserve compensation, why don’t Jewish refugees deserve the same?

Islamic Waqf Guards Ban Mention of 'Temple Mount' on Holy Site
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz January 6, 2017 , 8:00 am
He that walketh in his uprightness feareth Hashem; but he that is perverse in his ways despiseth Him. Proverbs 14:2 (The Israel Bible™)
Respected archaeologist Professor Gabriel Barkay was lecturing a group of students from the University of California on a tour of the Temple Mount on Sunday when he was confronted by a Waqf guard who ordered him to stop using the term ‘Temple Mount’.
Barkay continued his lecture about the pre-Islamic history of the site and used the term ‘Temple Mount’ once again. The Waqf guard ordered the professor to accompany him and they walked to a nearby group of Israeli policemen. The Waqf guard reported Barkay to the police, telling them they wanted the archaeologist removed from the site. The Israeli police, who have authority over who enters the compound, refused, pointing out that it is not illegal to use the term. The Israeli police advised Barkay to refrain from using the term, and for the rest of the tour, he referred to the site as ‘T.M.’.

Professor Gabriel Barkay (Photo: gabrielbarkay.com)
Professor Barkay is no stranger to the Temple Mount and its strict policies but he was shocked at the Waqf’s demand.
“This has never happened to me before,” Dr. Barkay said in an exclusive interview with Breaking Israel News. “There were instances in which the Waqf guards were displeased with other aspects of my lectures, but this is the first time they have objected to me using that term.”
“I think the whole thing is outrageous and very strange,” Barkay continued. “Denying history for political reasons is intolerable. I think they are making themselves look ridiculous. There are so many references to the Jewish Temple in Islamic literature that it is stupid for the Waqf to deny it existed. In any case, by denying history, the Waqf is actually helping the Israeli cause by emphasizing how inaccurate their claim is.”

Ivanka, president elect Donald Trump’s Jewish daughter, was a high-profile part of her father’s campaign, and her choice of home and synagogue near the White House are a hint that this will be a meaningful part of his presidency.
It was announced earlier this week that Ivanka and Jared Kushner purchased a $5.5 million dollar home in Washington’s Kalorama neighborhood and will attend the Chabad synagogue,  a seven-minute walk from their new home. This is an important consideration as the Kushners are Sabbath observant and do not drive from sundown Friday until sundown Saturday.

Netanyahu and Most Israelis Support Pardon for Convicted Soldier
A poll suggests that 70% of the Israeli public is in favor of pardoning Elor Azaria, who was convicted for shooting a neutralized Palestinian terrorist. Netanyahu also supports a pardon.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu voiced support for the pardoning of IDF soldier Elor Azaria, who was convicted of manslaughter by a military court on Wednesday.
Last March, Azaria, a combat medic stationed at the time in Hebron, shot a neutralized terrorist in the head as he lay wounded on the ground after committing a stabbing attack against the soldier’s colleagues.
“This is a difficult and painful day for all of us – first and foremost for Elor and his family, for the soldiers of the IDF, for many citizens and for parents of soldiers, me among them,” Netanyahu said in a Facebook post posted several hours after the conviction.

Netanyahu Working to Prevent New anti-Israel Resolution in Obama’s final days
Prime Minister Netanyahu said that Israel is working vigorously to block another anti-Israel UNSC resolution, as fears mount that the Obama administration may again abstain in its final days.
Speaking to Israeli ambassadors in Jerusalem on Tuesday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the “signs” are pointing to the United Nations’ Security Council (UNSC) adopting another anti-Israel resolution, based on the understandings agreed upon ahead of the upcoming Paris regional conference later this month.
Israel fears that only days before leaving office, President Barack Obama will again abstain from a vote on an anti-Israel resolution at the UNSC, after not using the US veto power against a similar resolution last month. The so-called Paris understandings would provide the opportunity for an additional abstention.
“The Paris conference is an empty event, but signs indicate that decisions received there will become another Security Council resolution; that already is not empty. And there are quite a few such signs.”
“Therefore, our primary effort right now is to try and prevent another UN resolution, another UNSC vote, and to prevent a [international Middle East] Quartet resolution,” he stated.
France is scheduled to host an international summit for implementing a diplomatic solution between Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA) on January 15. Although 70 countries are expected to participate, Israel has refused to attend, saying that only direct talks between Israel and the PA can lead to real peace, and not an externally imposed solution.

Israeli Jews Arrested After Attempting Prayers at Joshua's Tomb
By Andrew Friedman January 5, 2017 , 12:30 pm
“And they answered Yehoshua, saying: ‘All that thou hast commanded us we will do, and whithersoever thou sendest us we will go.” Joshua 1:16 (The Israel Bible™)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/joshua-tomb-3.jpg
Thousands of Ultra Orthodox Jewish men entered the Palestinian village of Kif al Harat, in the West Bank, accompanied by Israeli soldiers, to pray at the tombs of Yehoshua Ben Nun and Kaleb Ben Yepune, on May 3, 2016. (Photo: Yaakov Naumi/Flash90)
A group of Israeli ultra-Orthodox Jews were arrested overnight between Wednesday and Thursday in the Palestinian village Kiffel-Hares after the group tried to hold midnight prayers at the grave of the Biblical prophet Joshua, located in the village. Police said the group entered the town, near the city of Ariel, to pray but were quickly attacked by a barrage of rocks.

IDF forces rescued the Israelis and the police detained them for questioning. The group is suspected of violating a military order (by entering a Palestinian village, considered a closed military zone), actions that could endanger public safety and disturbing the work of a public servant. The men were detained overnight and will appear in the Petah Tikva Magistrates Court Thursday afternoon.

The Honenu legal aid organization criticized security forces for having “given another reward to terrrorism” and said the area in question is not located in a closed military zone.

“Once again the police has rewarded terrorism and arrested Jews who came to pray but were attacked by Arabs,” said Honenu in a statement. “Kiffel-Hares is in Area B (unless the village’s status has changed in the last few weeks), meaning Israelis are allowed to enter. Several months ago, following a similar incident, police claimed the hassidim had “disturbed the work of a public servant” and created a public disturbance because entering the village created a danger both to themselves and to security forces. Of course, the same could be said by driving on the road near the town of Huwara (an Arab town near Nablus that has produced many terrorists).

“I guess the police have decided that it is easier to act against Jews at prayer instead of against Arab rioters,” the group said.

Moroccan King Mohammed VI Restores Jewish Names of Marrakech Ghetto
By JNI Media January 5, 2017 , 1:30 pm
“All the nations are gathered together, and the peoples are assembled; who among them can declare this, and announce to us former things? Let them bring their witnesses, that they may be justified; and let them hear, and say: ‘It is truth.’” Isaiah 43:9 (The Israel Bible™)

The original names of the historic Jewish quarter of Marrakech, the famed Mellah (Arabic and Hebrew for salt), are being restored under the instructions of Moroccan King Mohammed VI, Maghreb Arabe Presse reported this week.

Morocco’s Interior Ministry announced that, following the King’s recent visit to the neighborhood which is currently known as the Essalam district, it will be renamed El Mellah. The original Jewish names of the area’s streets and squares will also be restored.
According to the Ministry’s statement, the “royal instructions emanate from the concern of the Sovereign […] to safeguard the civilized heritage of the Kingdom as well as the cultural heritage of all the components of Moroccan society.”
The royal intervention came in response to a request by the president of Marrakech Jewish community. There are an estimated few hundred Jews still living in El Mellah, situated in the city’s kasbah, east of Place des Ferblantiers. The Mellah was segregated for Jewish dwelling in 1558 by the Saadi dynasty which ruled Morocco from 1549 to 1659. The Mellah was established at the site of the sultan’s stables.

The Mellah ghetto kept its Jewish inhabitants separate from their Muslim neighbors by high surrounding walls.

Mike Huckabee: Palestinian State is
a ‘Fantasy’
“Is not thy fear of God thy confidence, and thy hope the integrity of thy ways?” (Job 4:6)
Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee planted an olive tree overlooking the Judean Desert on the southeastern edge of the Ma’aleh Adumim Tuesday, saying the tree would come to provide shade for a park in a planned neighborhood that Ma’aleh Adumim Mayor Benny Kashriel said would contain about 1,000 housing units. On a tour organized by the Judea, Samaria and Gaza Council, Huckabee also slammed last month’s UN Security Resolution condemning Israeli communities as “embarrassing, and added hopes that incoming US President Donald J. Trump moves the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.
Backed by a red banner reading ‘Build Israel Great Again’ just one day after the Jewish Home Knesset faction held its weekly meeting here in order to launch a campaign to annex the city, Huckabee took a selfie with Kashriel to show that Israeli “settlements” are not a group of tents on isolated hilltops, but rather established cities. He also said that visions of a Palestinian state – traditionally a cornerstone of US policy in the Middle East – had to change.

IDF Soldier Elor Azaria Found Guilty
of Manslaughter
By Ilana Messika January 4, 2017 , 1:30 pm
But My mercy will I not break off from him, nor will I be false to My faithfulness.” Psalms 89:34 (The Israel Bible™)

IDF Sgt. Elor Azaria was convicted of manslaughter Wednesday for the shooting death of a Palestinian terrorist in Hebron last March. Azaria was caught on video shooting by the left-wing B’tselem organization shooting a person who was lying on the ground and appeared to pose no immediate threat.
Justices rejected Azaria’s claim that believed the man, who had just stabbed a soldier at the site, was wired with a suicide belt and still posed a threat. Justices said there was “no basis” Azaria’s argument that he acted in self-defense.”There was no immediate danger when the terrorist laid on the floor,” said Colonel Maya Heller, the lead justice on the case. Military prosecutors argued that Azaria violated standing IDF rules of engagement without military justification and charged him with manslaughter.

Five Potential Major Developments in US-Israel Relations in 2017

The onset of 2017 comes several weeks before President-elect Donald Trump takes office, ushering in a new era in the U.S.-Israel relationship. The new year and new administration bring intrigue and unanswered questions on a number of major storylines that could shape the complexion of American-Israeli ties both this year and for years to come. JNS.org presents five potential major developments to watch for this year.
Will the U.S. Embassy in Israel move to Jerusalem?
Trump and his ambassador-designate to Israel, David Friedman, have pledged to move America’s Israeli embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Will they follow through?

Typically, any country’s foreign embassies are located in capital cities. Israel set up its capital in Jerusalem in 1948, but many nations, including the U.S., have established their embassies in Tel Aviv as part of a refusal to recognize Israel’s annexation of eastern sections of Jerusalem and the unification of the city following the Jewish state’s victory in the 1967 Six-Day War.

Return of the 70 Nations to Paris to Condemn Israel Prophetic Fulfillment
Biblical Return of 70 Nations as Countries Gather in Paris to Condemn Israel
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz January 5, 2017 , 11:30 am
“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.’ For they have consulted together with one consent; against Thee do they make a covenant.” Psalms 83:5-6 (The Israel Bible™
High ranking officials from 70 nations of the world will gather in Paris on January 15th in an attempt to force Israel to accept a two-state solution with the Palestinian Authority. By so doing, they will be fulfilling a momentous Biblical prophecy foretold thousands of years ago.

When Israeli statesman Shimon Peres passed away in September, leaders and dignitaries from 70 nations gathered in Jerusalem to pay their last respects. The symbolism is no mere coincidence; the very same number of representatives will gather in Paris, but this time to deny the Jewish connection to the Land of Israel.
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/rabbi-trugman-300x250-300x250.jpg
Rabbi Avraham Arieh Trugman (Courtesy)
“Everyone knows already what the purpose of the conference is: it will be an all-out hatefest against Israel,” Rabbi Avraham Arieh Trugman, director of Ohr Chadash Torah Institute, told Breaking Israel News. “What’s interesting is that it isn’t just one or two enemies with a specific grudge, like the Arabs or the Nazis. It is 70 nations, which in Torah terms, means all of the nations,” explained Rabbi Trugman.

Rabbi Shimon Apisdorf, a prominent Jewish educator and bestselling author, told Breaking Israel News that seeing 70 nations written in the headlines caught his attention.

“There is no question that the aspect of specifically 70 nations gathering is significant, the point being Israel is not one of them,” said Rabbi Apisdorf, citing the book of Numbers.

Lo, it is a people that shall dwell alone, and shall not be reckoned among the nations. Numbers 23:9

“We are fundamentally different,” stated Rabbi Apisdorf. “And as a light unto the nations, we are supposed to be separate and different.”

Rabbi Trugman understood a different message in the gathering of the 70 countries.

“There is no doubt this is a fulfillment of the prophecies that in the end of days, all the nations will come out against Israel,” noted the rabbi. He quoted the commentary of Rabbi Shlomo Yitzchaki, an 11th century French commentator known by the acronym ‘Rashi’, on the first verse in the book of Genesis.
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/433-BIN-Subscribe-BiblicalProphecy-600WIDE.jpg

“1,000 years ago, Rashi said that in the future, the nations of the world will come and say we stole the Land of Israel. This is precisely what we are seeing now,” Rabbi Trugman said. “The majority of the nations say we have no claim to Israel, and the rest say we only have a claim to a small section of Israel.”

“Rashi told us how to answer this claim,” said Rabbi Trugman. “We need to remind them that the same God who created the heaven and earth gave it to them, and then he took it from them and gave it to us.”

The concept of 70 nations has its source in the 70 grandsons of Noah listed in the Bible.

These three were the sons of Noach, and of these was the whole earth overspread. Genesis 9:19
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/JacobsLadder-247x300.jpg
Jacob’s Ladder (Publisher of Bible Card/Wikimedia Commons)
According to Bereshit Rabbah, a collection of homiletical teachings compiled around 400 CE, each nation is appointed an angel, except for Israel, which is protected by God Himself. According to Midrash Tanchuma, homiletical teachings believed to have been compiled around 500 CE, Jacob’s vision was of these national angels ascending and descending a ladder, determining the fortune of their nations.

And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven; and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it. Genesis 28:12

Jacob’s vision is interpreted as a message that the nation of Israel was no longer part of this natural process. Though other nations will rise and fall, eventually disappearing into the sands of time, Israel will never disappear.

The concept of 70 nations also appears in reference to the 70 oxen offered in the Temple throughout Sukkot (the feast of the tabernacles) which the Talmud (Sukkah 55b) teaches are for the merit of the 70 nations.

In the wake of the recent United Nations Security Council resolution 2334 declaring Jewish housing in Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem to be illegal, the outcome of the Paris conference seems certain. A two-state solution would call for Israel to relinquish territories conquered in the 1967 Six-Day War, and subsequently create a Palestinian State. This would include establishing a Palestinian capital in East Jerusalem, thereby removing the Kotel (Western Wall) and the Temple Mount from Jewish control. It is unclear whether the 800,000 Jews living over the 1949 Armistice Lines, comprising approximately 13 percent of Israel’s Jewish population, will be required to relocate, as they were when the Israeli government dismantled the communities of Gush Katif in the Gaza Strip in 2005.

Even if the 70 nations at the conference decide in favor of the two-state solution it is unclear how this plan will be practically implemented. On January 20, five days after the conference is set to take place, Donald Trump will take the seat in Oval Office, and he has already made his opinion clear that, like Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, he believes the only solution to be face-to-face negotiations without pre-conditions between the Israelis and Palestinians.

Hispanic Christians Deepen Pro-Israel Ties, Reject UN Anti-Settlement Vote
“And I will bless them that bless thee, and him that curseth thee will I curse; and in thee shall all the families of the earth be blessed.” (Gensis 12:3)
The Hispanic Israel Leadership Coalition (HILC), a leading pro-Israel Latino Christian initiative, is planning to mobilize its leadership and supporters to lobby Congress Jan. 11 to reject the United Nations Security Council’s recent resolution that condemns Israeli settlements.

The Dec. 23 resolution, HILC said in a statement, denies “the Jewish people rights to their own homeland as well as threatening the very survival of Christians to our holy sites in the biblical heartland.”
Pastor Mario Bramnick, president of HILC—a subsidiary of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, which calls itself America’s largest international Hispanic evangelical organization—said the resolution strengthens “the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israel and it will lead to more world court actions based on international law.”
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/461-BIN-SubscribeUSIsraelRelations-600WIDE.jpg
HILC “intends to work with our friends in President [Donald] Trump’s administration and in Congress to defund the morally bankrupt United Nations, we also call upon evangelicals and elected officials across the nation to affirm President-elect Trump in rectifying the reckless actions of President [Barack] Obama,” Bramnick said.
Additionally, HILC plans to join other pro-Israel Christian groups—including Christians United for Israel and 175 church leaders—to encourage Congress to pass a resolution condemning the U.N. resolution and urging Obama not to return to the Security Council for another resolution targeting Israel.
“Our hope is that by lobbying on Jan. 11, the message will be heard by both the Senate and the president, who will be attending the Paris Summit [on Mideast peace] Jan. 15, that the United States stands by its ally, Israel, and will not stand idly by while the world condemns the only country in the Israel-Palestine conflict that has taken action toward achieving peace,” said Robert Nicholson, executive director of the Philos Project, one of the Christian groups planning on attending the Jan. 11 lobbying effort.

Australia Opposes ‘One-Sided Resolutions’ Against Israel
Australia stands with Israel. We support Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East,” the Australian prime minister stated.

Australia is not a member of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), but if it were, it would not have supported the anti-Israel resolution passed over a week ago, condemning Jewish settlements in eastern Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria as obstacles to peace, the prime minister and foreign minister indicated.

The UNSC vote passed 14-0. In a stunning shift in policy, the US abstained, rather than using its veto to block the resolution.

In a statement released Thursday, Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said her country does not support “one-sided resolutions targeting Israel.”

Her government, she said, remains “firmly committed to a two-state solution, where Israel and a Palestinian state exist side by side in peace and security, within internationally recognized borders.”

At a Sydney synagogue, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull also slammed the UNSC resolution, calling it “one-sided” and “deeply unsettling,” the Australian Jewish News reported.

According to the report, Turnbull made the remarks at Central Synagogue on Friday, where he took part in a menorah-lighting ceremony for Chanukah.

“Australia stands with Israel. We support Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East,” he stated. “We support a peaceful resolution of the disputes between Israel and the Palestinians.”

A two-state solution “can only be negotiated between the parties,” he said. “It is not assisted by one-sided resolutions made at the councils of the United Nations or anywhere else, and that is why Australia has not, and does not, support one-sided resolutions.”

Bishop visited Jerusalem in September, where she and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly had friendly meetings. The Israeli leader accepted an invitation to visit Australia in 2017.

“The Australian public would warmly embrace you, welcome you, and we would look forward to the first visit of an Israeli prime minister ever to Australia,” she told Netanyahu.

The current Australian government was inaugurated in July 2016 and is considered very friendly to Israel. Bishop publicly stated two years ago that the international community has no authority to decide on the legality of Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.

Israel’s Law Enforcement Gearing Up to Welcome Messiah
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz January 2, 2017 , 12:30 pm
“Judges and officers shalt thou make thee in all thy gates, which Hashem thy God giveth thee, tribe by tribe; and they shall judge the people with righteous judgment.” Deuteronomy 16:18 (The Israel Bible™)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/israeli-police-kotel-western-wall-Roni-Alsheikh-Shmuel-Rabinovich-Itzhak-Yosef.jpg

Roni Alsheikh, the Israeli Commissioner of Police, announced last week that his department of law enforcement personnel is preparing for the arrival of the Messiah in a truly unique way. Alsheikh was filmed at a celebration held by Chabad Hasidim in his neighborhood of Givat Shmuel, not far from Tel Aviv, in honor of the 19th of the Hebrew month Kislev.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/Israeli-Police-Facebook-Roni-Alsheikh-002-300x230.jpg

Israeli Police Commissioner Roni Alsheikh (Israeli Police Spokesperson Unit)
“We, the police, are very involved in strengthening the mitzvot (Bible commandments) between man and his fellow,” announced Alsheikh at the gathering. “When the Messiah comes, everyone will want to [approach] him so it will get very crowded,” predicted the commissioner. “That will be a time when we will have to be very strong in respecting our fellow.”

In describing the very important role the Israeli police will play upon Messiah’s arrival, Alsheikh said to the joyous Hasidim gathered, “Not only are we busy enforcing the law, we also try to enact preventative measures [regarding] how to strengthen mutual consideration for our fellow.”

The 19th of Kislev is considered the New Year of Hasidut by many Hasidic Jews, commemorating Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi’s release from prison in 1798. Rabbi Shneur Zalman is considered by many to be the first leader of the Chabad movement, a group dedicated to Jewish outreach and tightening the bond between mankind as commanded by God.

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

Alsheikh was ascribing a function to the police that is incumbent upon everyone, stated as a Biblical commandment in Leviticus.
Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am Hashem. Leviticus 19:18

The commissioner’s message and its strong connection to the Chabad movement and Hassidut was well-received by the revelers.

The police force’s mission to focus on the Biblical requirement of ‘love your fellow’ is timely indeed. The holiday of Hanukkah, which ended on Sunday, commemorates the Maccabees’ victory over the Greeks and their triumph over the Hellenized (assimilated) Jews. At the time, Israel was torn apart by conflict: there was rampant hatred between the Jews, to which rabbis attribute the destruction of the Holy Temple.

“There is no doubt that happiness and serving God will bring us closer,” Alsheikh said at the gathering. “Soon, God willing, we will need to start preparing for the security operation necessary upon the arrival of the Messiah.”

Former Australian PM: Move Embassy to Jerusalem, Cut Off PA Funds
By JNI Media January 2, 2017 , 1:30 pm
“Nevertheless my brethren that went up with me made the heart of the people melt; but I wholly followed Hashem my God.” Joshua 14:8 (The Israel Bible™)

Former Prime Minister Tony Abbott has called for Australia to cut off the $40 million in aid it gives the Palestinian Authority annually, over the Abbas regime’s support for “terrorists and their families.” The Liberal politician also supported moving the Australian embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/858593_10152111600413646_486360148_o-248x300.jpg
Former Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott (Facebook)
Last month Mr. Abbott attended the Australia-Israel-UK Dialogue in Jerusalem, as did Opposition Leader Bill Shorten and other federal MPs. Last Thursday, writing under the headline “Jerusalem Diary” for The Spectator Australia, the 60-year-old, London-born Member of Parliament, wrote: “In discussions with the Australian MPs, Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah claimed that his people accepted Israel’s right to exist behind secure borders; but this is hard to credit given Palestinian TV’s consistent glorification of suicide bombers, reference to Jews as the ‘sons of monkeys and pigs’ and claims that the state of Israel is a ‘satanic project.’”

Pointing out that “Israel’s GDP per person is about $40,000 a year” and “Palestine’s is about $2000,” Abbot stressed that “this is not due to inherent riches on one side of the [border],” but due to the ineptness and corruption of the PA bureaucracy. He quoted Australia’s “highly-regarded ambassador to Israel, Dave Sharma,” who had told him that “it can cost as much to ship a case of Palestinian beer from the West Bank to port at Haifa than from there to Japan.” Abbot’s concluded that the PA’s ” basic problem […] is a focus on politics over economics and the all-pervading sense of grievance.”

In order to improve the lives of PA Arabs, Abbot recommends “lesser issues that could be fixed before [the issue of Palestinian statehood] is resolved. It should be easier for people and goods to move from Palestine into Israel and Jordan. The UAE should join Jordan and Egypt in operating direct flights into Tel Aviv. And Australia should cut our $40 million a year in aid to the Palestinian Authority while it keeps paying pensions to terrorists and their families.”

Abbot also suggested that “another way for Australia to demonstrate its unswerving support for Israel, as the Middle East’s only liberal, pluralist democracy, might be to join any move by the Trump administration to move its embassy to Jerusalem.”

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/150-JerusalemCovenant4-600WIDE.jpg

Australian Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop issued a quick statement rejecting Abbot’s ideas: “The Australian Government does not have any plans to move the Australian Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.”

However, she did announce that Australia’s aid program to the PA was already under review: “The Australian aid program has robust risk management and due diligence assessment processes which are also applied to partner agencies and governments,” she stated, noting that “the Australian Government has a zero tolerance policy with regard to fraud and corruption.”

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/10505235_688883061147599_5541919898414881012_o-200x300.jpg
Julie Bishop MP, Australian Minister for Foreign Affairs (Facebook)
Bishop made it clear that “Australian aid to the Palestinian Territories is under review after the aid program for World Vision in the Palestinian Territories was suspended last year.”

Earlier this year, it was revealed that the head of the World Vision operations in the Gaza Strip turned out to be a Hamas agent who diverted much of the aid funds to Hamas military projects as well as to the restoration of Hamas leaders’ villas.

Labor senior politician Kate Ellis also rejected Abbot’s ideas, saying, “What we see here is Tony Abbott using policy on the Middle East to try and undermine [Liberal Prime Minister] Malcolm Turnbull.”

Similarly, Izzat Abdulhadi, head of the General Delegation of Palestine to Australia, told SBS that Abbot’s “statement, argument, is baseless, ideological, biased and lack evidence of the aid to Palestine.” Adding a touch of melodrama, the representative of one of the most corrupt regimes in the Middle East, with Swiss accounts to show for it, said about Abbot: “If he has some issues with the Prime Minister here it should not be [at] the expense of the suffering of the Palestinian children and Palestinian refugees.”
