[WATCH] PM Netanyahu’s Christmas Message from the Christian Embassy
December 22
By Staff Writer December 22, 2016 , 12:30 pm
And Yehonatan said to David: ‘Go in peace, forasmuch as we have sworn both of us in the name of Hashem, saying: Hashem shall be between me and thee, and between my seed and thy seed, for ever.’ I Samuel 20:42 (The Israel Bible™

PM Benjamin Netanyahu sends his best wishes outside the Christian Embassy. (YouTube screenshot)
To all of our Christian friends around the world, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

I send you these greetings from Jerusalem. I’m standing in the courtyard of this magnificent International Christian Embassy. I’m so proud of our relations with our Christian brothers and sisters. I wonder for many of you if you remember the experience you had when you first visited Israel, when you saw the Church of the Holy Sepulchre or the Via Dolorosa or the Sea of Galilee or Nazareth. I’m sure it moved you deeply.

And it moves us deeply to have this bond with you because we all know that this land of Israel is the land of our common heritage. It changed the story of humanity, it changed civilization. What a magnificent heritage it is. Yet, we also know that it is under attack these days, that the forces of intolerance, of barbarism that attack all religions attack Christians with particular vehemence. We stand with you and I’m proud of the fact that in Israel, this is the one place in the Middle East that the Christian community not only survives but thrives and it’s no accident. It’s because of our commitment to religious freedom; it’s because of our embrace of our heritage; it’s because of our embrace of our common future.
PM Netanyahu's Greeting for Christmas and the New Year

Disrespect, Contempt from Obama Administration Compels Israel to Explore Beneficial Ties With International Community
“Thou knowest my reproach, and my shame, and my confusion; mine adversaries are all before Thee.” (Psalms 69:20)
Scorned By Obama, Israel Forges Beneficial Ties with Russia, Expert Says
By JNS December 22, 2016 , 8:30 am

Obama Abandons Israel

By Rafael Medoff/JNS.org
WASHINGTON—Although Israelis were distressed by the tension in their relationship with the outgoing Obama administration, that state of affairs has compelled Jerusalem to forge ties elsewhere that have greatly benefited the Jewish state, according to a leading expert on the Middle East, Russia and international security.
Dr. Ariel Cohen, a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council and director of the Center for Energy, Natural Resources and Geopolitics, analyzed Israel’s growing relationship with Russia and other countries in a Dec. 20 conference call sponsored by the Endowment for Middle East Truth, and in a subsequent interview with JNS.org.
“With President [Barack] Obama and the left wing of the Democratic Party turning against Israel, Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu has made a great effort to build better relationships with Russia, India, African countries and others,” Cohen said. Netanyahu’s recent visits to Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan illustrate Israel’s ability to find allies in unexpected corners of the globe, including some majority-Muslim countries.

Israel’s growing relationship with Russia is “complicated, but clearly a tremendous improvement over relations between the Jewish state and the old Soviet Union,” Cohen noted.
“One the one hand, Russia has allied itself with enemies of Israel such as Iran and the Syrian regime of [Bashar] Assad, and the Russians consistently vote against Israel at the United Nations and other international forums,” he said. But at the same time, Cohen pointed out, “Russia and Israel have significant trade relations, tourism and medical ties, with thousands of Russians going to Israel every year for medical treatment and teams of Israeli doctors visiting Russia to share their expertise and advice.”
One important practical benefit of Israel’s relationship with Russia, Cohen told JNS.org, is that the Russians have refrained from activating their anti-aircraft batteries in Syria when Israel has bombed weapons convoys traveling from Syria to Hezbollah bases in Lebanon. “The Russians have not interfered even though the casualties of the Israeli strikes included an Iranian general,” Cohen said.
Russia continues to support the Palestinian cause, “but at nowhere near the levels of backing that were provided by the old Soviet regime,” Cohen said. “In those days, the USSR was the main supporter and funder of Palestinian terrorism, as well as providing diplomatic and political support.”

By contrast, he said Russia today “does not actively support Hamas or other Palestinian terrorist groups,” and most of Russia’s sympathy for the Palestinian cause is expressed through votes at the United Nations. “This is a very significant change,” Cohen told JNS.org. “[Russian President Vladimir] Putin is not going out of his way to push Israel toward accepting a Palestinian state. He has much bigger fish to fry in the Middle East.”

While cautioning that the Russians are somewhat unpredictable and changing circumstances could alter Moscow’s strategy, Cohen emphasized that Russia’s main interest in the Middle East is to expand its regional influence. In pursuit of that goal, Putin is not limiting himself to the avenues that his Soviet predecessors utilized and is constructing temporary alliances of convenience. Russia’s attitude toward Iran, for example, “is not based on any shared values—the Iranians are Muslims and the Russians are mostly Orthodox Christians—but on their mutual hostility toward the United States,” according to Cohen.
Humanitarian considerations are completely irrelevant to Putin in his effort to expand Russian influence in the region. “In Syria, he will not hesitate to fight to the last Syrian,” Cohen said. “Russian foreign policy is deeply cynical.”
It was the Obama administration’s coldness toward Israel and retreat from the region in general that forced Israel to look for ways to fill the vacuum by developing new relationships, Cohen believes. “Israel became just one in a long line of traditional American allies in the Middle East whom the Obama administration distanced itself from, including the [Abdel Fattah El] Sisi regime in Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the other Gulf states. So naturally Israel has had to look elsewhere for allies, even temporary ones,” he said.

As for U.S. policy under President-elect Donald Trump, Cohen said that in the short run, “the Trump administration will undoubtedly focus on the threat from ISIS (Islamic State) rather than have a confrontation with Russia.” Once Islamic State is defeated, Trump will need to address larger strategic issues in the Middle East, and he is likely to find that Putin “is a really tough customer,” Cohen said.
For Israel, based on Cohen’s assessment, the year ahead will be a period of carefully watching, waiting and being prepared to adapt to new regional circumstances.

Lives of Orphans, Widows Light Up at Jerusalem Hanukkah Retreat
“We are become orphans and fatherless, our mothers are as widows.” (Lamentations 5:3)
The holiday season is a particularly hard time for families who have lost a loved one. Colel Chabad, Israel’s longest-running social services organization, is once again treating over 400 orphaned children and about 130 widows to a three-day Hanukkah retreat at the Ramada Hotel in Jerusalem

Reclaiming the Land of Israel: IDF Establishes a ‘City’ of Military Training Bases
“And all those that were numbered of B’nei Yisrael by their fathers’ houses, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war in Yisrael.” (Numbers 1:45)
A not-so-quiet demographic and geographic revolution is taking place in Israel these days. After years of planning, concrete efforts are underway to shift populations—particularly educated and younger sectors of Israeli society—away from the overcrowded and overpriced center of the country. The new destination is the southern Negev region and its wide-open spaces, ushering in the 21st century version of pioneering Zionism.

UN to Vote on Draft Resolution, Demands Israel "Immediately Cease All Settlement Activities"
By Ilana Messika December 22, 2016 , 1:30 pm
And as for you, ye meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive. Genesis 50:20 (The Israel Bible™)
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon at the opening of the 71st session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York. (Photo: Shutterstock)
The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) is expected to vote on Thursday afternoon, New York time, on a draft resolution presented by Egypt demanding that Israel “immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem.”
The draft resolution further stipulates that the construction of Jewish communities in Judea, Samaria and eastern Jerusalem has “no legal validity and constitutes a flagrant violation under international law and a major obstacle to the achievement of the two-State solution and a just, lasting and comprehensive peace.”
Spokespeople for Israel’s foreign ministry refused to comment on the resolution, but anticipating the vote, Education Minister and Jewish Home MK Naftali Bennett released a video statement Thursday saying ““Here in Israel we are at the forefront of the battle between radical Islamic terror and freedom […] we are out there fighting for you, for the free world. Whoever today supports a resolution against Israel is in effect raising his hand for the forces of evil.”
Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon. (Hillel Maeir/TPS )
Permanent Representative of Israel to the United Nations Danny Danon similarly criticized the “anti-Israeli resolution” and described it as “the peak of hypocrisy.”
“It is absurd that at a time when thousands are being massacred in Syria, the Security Council is devoting time and energy to convene and discuss condemning the only true democracy in the Middle East. This resolution will do nothing to promote a diplomatic process, and will only reward the Palestinian policy of incitement and terror,”
At least one legal expert told Tazpit Press Service (TPS) that the vote could present significant problems for Jerusalem – whether or not the resolution is binding.

2,000-Year Old Hasmonean-Era Coin Discovered, Bringing Hanukkah Story to Life
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz December 22, 2016 , 11:30 am
“For the commandment is a lamp, and the teaching is light, and reproofs of instruction are the way of life.” Proverbs 6:23 (The Israel Bible™)

Nearly 30 years after archaeologists finished their excavations, representatives from Jerusalem’s Tower of David announced on Tuesday the unexpected discovery of a 2,000-year old bronze coin.
Orna Cohen, chief conservation officer at the Jerusalem’s Tower of David, was inspecting some minor damage in the tower’s courtyard when she was surprised to see the glint of metal amongst the tumbled rocks. What she had discovered was a pruta, a bronze penny from the Hasmonean Era, when the Jewish Maccabees defeated the Greeks in a battle that is now commemorated during the holiday of Hanukkah.
The face of Antiochus IV Epiphanes appears on the front of the bronze penny, and the reverse side portrays the Greek goddess Hera holding a torch and scepter in her hand.

Christmas Spirit Arrives in Jerusalem as Free Trees Distributed in Festive Annual Event
“He heweth him down cedars, and taketh the ilex and the oak, and strengtheneth for himself one among the trees of the forest; he planteth a bay-tree, and the rain doth nourish it.” Isaiah 44:4 (The Israel Bible™)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/christmas-santa.jpg
A man dressed up as Santa Claus at Jaffa Gate in Jerusalem’s Old City as free Christmas trees are distributed for the upcoming holiday, December 20, 2016. (Flash90)
The Jerusalem Municipality distributed 150 complimentary Christmas trees on Tuesday to the city’s Christian residents in preparation for the holiday, which this year falls on Sunday. It was the continuation of a celebrated annual tradition which sees the city, holy to the three major religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, honoring its multifaith heritage.
The giveaway took place at the Jaffa Gate entrance to Jerusalem’s Old City, where trucks unloaded dozens of pine trees for the choosing. With the presentation of an ID, residents were invited to pick out a tree and take it home for the holiday.
In an amusing display of the religious and cultural juxtapositions which have come to define Israel, a fully outfitted Santa Claus riding a camel made an appearance at the event.
“I wish health, safety, and peace all around the world!” Santa told the crowd. “From Jerusalem, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! HO HO HO!”

Some “customers” came all the way from Bethlehem to pick up their trees, Arizona Cypresses grown in Israel by the Jewish National Fund (JNF). Other takers were local Jerusalem residents, tourists, and clergy. One monk who came to collect a tree for an ill parishioner told i24 News that Christmas is especially important in Israel because it is a holiday which celebrates peace, a much-needed commodity in the region.

“Christmas is a feast of joy, of holiness, of peace,” he said. “We need this peace, especially here in the Holy Land. We need unity.”

The annual tree giveaway is only part of Jerusalem’s comprehensive preparation for the Christmas holiday. The city also hangs festive lights and flags in areas where the holiday is widely celebrated, such as the Christian Quarter of the Old City, and sends special cleaning crews to spruce up local churches.

King of Morocco Inaugurates Historic Casablanca Synagogue and Jewish Museum
By JNS December 21, 2016 , 8:30 am
“And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places, thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of paths to dwell in.” Isaiah 58:12 (The Israel Bible™)
Morocco’s King Mohammed VI attended the inauguration of the historic Ettedgui Synagogue and the adjacent El Mellah Jewish Museum last week in Casablanca.
Morocco’s King Mohammed VI attended the inauguration of the historic Ettedgui Synagogue and the adjacent El Mellah Jewish Museum last week in Casablanca.
The ceremony to rededicate the synagogue museum is part of an effort by the Moroccan government to restore Casablanca’s Old Medina. A grant by the government of about $844,000 funded most of the restorations.
Serge Berugo, head of the Council of Moroccan Jewish Communities, told the Maghreb Arab Presse (MAP), that the restoration of the synagogue and the museum “where there are exhibited paintings retracing the history of Judaism in Morocco will also preserve the authentic Moroccan identity.”

“The synagogue and museum’s restoration display the King’s commitment to conserving spaces of cultural dialogue and coexistence,” Berugo added.
Morocco was once home to more than 250,000 Jews, many of whom immigrated to Israel in the mid-20th century. However, recent efforts have been made by Morocco to protect its Jewish history and to encourage Jewish tourism.

Recreation of Temple Showbreads Latest Step Towards Building Third Temple [PHOTOS]
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz December 21, 2016 , 12:30 pm

“And thou shalt put pure frankincense upon each row, that it may be on the bread for a memorial, even an offering made by fire unto Hashem.” Leviticus 24:7 (The Israel Bible™)

Last Saturday, a Shabbat reenactment of a Temple ritual took place in the holy city of Hebron, giving participants a taste of the Temple service as it was in Biblical times while taking a practical step towards preparing for the Third Temple.
More than 80 participants were greeted in Hebron Friday afternoon by the lighting of the Temple Menorah, lit by Shimshon Album and Rabbi Yaakov Hayman, the newly-elected chairman of the Temple Movement.
Facing the Menorah was the special rack holding the 12 lechem panim (show breads).

The lechem panim is unleavened bread, similar to the matzah eaten on Passover, and the 12 loaves are required by Biblical commandment to be on display inside the Temple sanctuary at all times. Cups of frankincense mixed with salt were placed on the bread.
And thou shalt take fine flour, and bake twelve cakes thereof: two tenth deals shall be in one cake. Leviticus 24:5
In the times of the Temple, Kohanim (men of the Jewish priestly caste) were separated into family groups that came to Jerusalem to serve in the Temple one week out of every year. The incoming group of priests would arrive on Friday to begin their service on the Sabbath. On Saturday afternoon, the outgoing priests would remove the showbread that had been on display for a week, replacing it with newly-baked bread.

Neo-Nazis Defile Jewish Tomb With Pig’s Head, Attack Worshipers With Tear Gas
“The adversary hath spread out his hand upon all her treasures; for she hath seen that the heathen are entered into her sanctuary, concerning whom Thou didst command that they should not enter into Thy congregation.” (Lamentations 1:10)
A group of neo-Nazis attacked the tomb of revered spiritual leader Rabbi Nachman of Breslov in the Ukraine, defiling the gravesite with fake blood and the head of a pig and physically assaulting Jewish worshipers with tear gas overnight on Tuesday.
Two Israeli nationals were taken to a hospital for treatment following the attack, which took place at around 2 AM on Wednesday morning in the city of Uman.
Rabbi Nachman, a very significant Jewish figure who founded the Hasidic movement, is buried in Uman. His grave is a popular pilgrimage site for religious Jews, drawing thousands of visitors during the Jewish New Year.
Rabbi Yisrael Elhadad, the sexton of the synagogue located on the tomb site, described the two attackers as neo-Nazis. The men entered the synagogue’s main hall with bottles of paint and sprayed tear gas at the five or six Jewish worshipers there, he told Ynet News.
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/466-GivingTuesday-Rebuild-600WIDE.jpg
While the blood was fake, the pig’s head, which had a swastika carved into it, was real. As pigs are considered an unclean animal, a pig’s head in a synagogue is a serious desecration.
Religious Jews who arrived in the morning for prayers were greeted by the gruesome scene.

Israel Opens Arms to Syrian Wounded From Aleppo
By JNS December 21, 2016 , 7:30 am
“For Thou hast been a stronghold to the poor, a stronghold to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat; for the blast of the terrible ones was as a storm against the wall.” Isaiah 25:4 (The Israel Bible™)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/syrian-wounded.jpg
Wounded civilians arrive at a hospital in Aleppo during the Syrian civil war, October 5, 2012. (Wikimedia Commons)
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the foreign ministry is exploring ways to provide assistance to Syrian civilian casualties from the fighting in Aleppo.
“We see the tragedy of the terrible suffering of the civilians,” Netanyahu said an end of the year event Tuesday with foreign press.
“We are prepared to take in wounded women and children, and also men if they are not combatants. Bring them to Israel, [we will] take care of them in our hospitals as we have done with thousands of Syrian civilians. We are looking into ways of doing this. It is being explored as we speak.”
While Israel has treated over 2,000 Syrians in its hospitals since the war began, most of those injured Syrians were from areas close to the Israeli-Syrian border in the Golan Heights. According to one Israeli government official, Israel is attempting to determine how to transfer civilians from Aleppo, which is a much more complicated logistical issue, the Jerusalem Post reported.
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/445-BIN-Subscribe-MiddleEast-600WIDE.jpg
Netanyahu added that he does not believe there is a clear solution to the situation in Syria right now and that the country is likely to be fractured for the foreseeable future.
“Will it come together and be a unified Syria? I doubt it,” Netanyahu said.
“I think you have enclaves there and they are not about to disappear, but the suffering is great, and the one initiative we took is to help – as I said – thousands of Syrians who are sometimes mutilated beyond belief. We help them. I offered to do more today. I don’t know if we can resolve [the crisis in] Syria, but we can help mitigate some of the suffering. That is the best that Israel can do.”

Coin struck by vilified king from Hanukkah story found in JerusalemConservator stumbles upon bronze penny bearing face of Antiochus IV Epiphanes during routine cleaning at Tower of DavidBY ILAN BEN ZION December 20, 2016, 4:26 pm 3

ronze penny minted by the Greek tyrant from the Hanukkah story was recently stumbled upon by archaeologists amid the ruins of Jerusalem’s Tower of David during routine cleaning of the site, the museum said in a statement Tuesday ahead of the commencement of the eight-day festival on Saturday night.

Orna Cohen, chief conservation officer at the iconic Jerusalem landmark, found the small bronze coin a few weeks ago during routine conservation work after a section of the Hasmonean-era city wall that runs through the citadel’s courtyard suffered minor damage (from either recent stormy weather or schoolchildren, nobody’s really sure).

The head of Antiochus IV Epiphanes appears on the front of the bronze penny, and the reverse has a goddess holding something — perhaps a torch — in her hand.
Antiochus IV was a Seleucid monarch remembered in Jewish history for his promotion of Hellenization and suppression of religious observances. While he was battling the rival Ptolemaic kingdom in Egypt for control of the Levant, Jewish zealots rose in revolt against Antiochus and the Hellenized high priest installed in the Jerusalem temple.

Antiochus returned from Egypt and attempted to quell the uprising. After his death on a subsequent campaign in Persia, Hasmonean rebels lead by Judah Maccabee and his clansmen succeeded in wresting control of Judea from the Seleucid Greeks, restoring the Jewish temple and forming a Jewish kingdom that ruled for a century. The Hanukkah holiday celebrates the Maccabees’ victory over the Greeks and Hellenized Jews.

Last year archaeologists said they may have found the remnants of a fortress Antiochus’s army used to besiege Jerusalem in 168 BCE.

The Tower of David sent the coin to the Israel Antiquities Authority for authentication.

The coin’s precise date wasn’t clear, but thousands of others of the same type were minted at the port of Acre, then called Antiochia Ptolemais, between 172 and 168 BCE, during Antiochus IV Epiphanes’s reign.

Its serrated edge helped pinpoint it to a 50-year window when that style was in vogue among Seleucid kings.

“Acre seemed to like the idea of serrated coins,” IAA Coin Department head Donald Ariel told The Times of Israel.
The coin may have been struck by the Seleucid army to pay troops used to quell the Maccabee revolt, he said. Such coins were used as small change by soldiers in the employ of the Greeks.
The coin was of little value then, and not too rare nowadays either. Ariel said there are at least 2,000 coins minted by Antiochus IV minted at Acre in the IAA collection. This is “the second most common coin type from the Seleucids,” he said, and is only outnumbered by coins minted by Antiochus III, Antiochus IV’s father.

Because the Tower of David isn’t an active archaeological dig, however, the museum management didn’t expect a new original finds, director Eilat Lieber told The Times of Israel. Israel captured the Old City from Jordan during the 1967 Six Day War, and archaeologists first excavated the citadel a year later. The last archaeological digs at the Tower of David were wrapped up in 1988.

“It was really a big surprise for us,” Leiber said, noting most Hasmonean artifacts tend to be from later in the period. Moreover, they were “surprised by the timing” just before Hanukkah.
But if you’d like a coin minted by the vilified Antiochus of your own for Hanukkah, there are several for sale online, including these on eBay

Bible Classes Mandated for Convicted Ex-President Katsav as Condition for Early Release
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz December 20, 2016 , 1:30 pm
“The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because Hashem hath anointed me to bring good tidings unto the humble; He hath sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the eyes to them that are bound.” Isaiah 61:1 (The Israel Bible™)
In a move which reflects the deeply Jewish values of even Israel’s most secular institutions, the Prison Parole Board has prescribed a daily dose of Bible study for Moshe Katsav, former president of Israel and convicted criminal, as one of the conditions for early parole from prison.
Katsav was convicted in 2010 of rape and sexual harassment and was sentenced to seven years behind bars. Initially, he was offered a plea bargain but later rejected the deal, claiming he would be vindicated in court. He also refused to take part in rehabilitation programs. Parole officials cited this and other statements he made as indications Katsav was unrepentant, leading them to reject his previous petitions for early release.
However, the Parole Board ruled on Sunday that Katsav will be released after serving only five years of his sentence. As part of his rehabilitation program, Katsav will be required to attend daily Torah lessons and attend weekly meetings of a religious treatment group.

Israeli security forces uncovered what they are calling the largest illegal weapons factory ever discovered underneath a Palestinian home in Hebron overnight Sunday.

According to the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), security forces discovered more than 100 Carl Gustav m/45 barrels, Russian 7.62 sniper rifles and M16 rifle parts with assembly instructions. Forces also seized 15 lathes (a machine for shaping metal) and other production materials used for making illegal homemade weapons.
The IDF deemed the discovery “the biggest weapons factory ever discovered in the West Bank,” Yedioth Ahronoth reported.

Bible Codes Reveal Eerie Details of Russian Ambassador’s Terror Assassination
Russia-Turkey Terror Assassination Found in Bible Codes in Stunning Detail
By Dr. Rivkah Lambert Adler December 20, 2016 , 12:30 pm
“The law of Hashem is perfect, restoring the soul; the testimony of Hashem is sure, making wise the simple.” Psalms 19:8 (The Israel Bible™)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/assassin-code.jpg
(Breaking Israel News)
A new Bible codes video contains all the significant elements of the assassination of Russia’s ambassador to Turkey in shocking detail, proving once again, in the words of international Bible codes expert Rabbi Matityahu Glazerson, that “Torah is the blueprint of creation and everything is in the Torah.”
Russian ambassador Andrei Karlov was murdered by 22 year-old Mevlut Mert Aydintas, who worked as a member of the Ankara riot police, on Monday night in Ankara, Turkey. Brandishing a gun, Aydintas proclaimed that the assassination was an act of jihad in protest against Russian involvement in Aleppo, Syria and against recent cooperation between Russia and Turkey.
As news of the assassination broke, Rabbi Glazerson found a table that contained all of its major elements, including the date, the location, the name of the victim and even the terror motive, encoded in the Torah. All these codes were found in a single book of the Bible, Leviticus, and primarily in chapter 13. According to Rabbi Glazerson, the proximity of all these codes to one another makes the table especially significant.

Rabbi Glazerson points out the code for hashagrir which is Hebrew for “the ambassador” and haRusi, which is a Hebrew adjective meaning “the Russian.” He also points to the last name of the victim, Karlov, spelled in Hebrew letters. Nearby, he shows the codes for Turkey and Ankara spelled in Hebrew letters.

Terror Attack on German Christmas Market Kills 12 as Truck Plows Through Crowds
“Be strong and of good courage, fear not, nor be affrighted at them; for Hashem thy God, He it is that doth go with thee; He will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.” (Deuteronomy 31:6)

In what authorities have termed a “probable terror attack,” twelve people were killed and 48 injured when a tractor trailer plunged into a crowd of holiday shoppers at a Christmas market in Berlin on Monday night. Among the injured was an Israeli man, whose wife, also at the attack, is still missing.
Witnesses said the driver of the truck, which was thought to have been hijacked by an asylum seeker from Afghanistan or Pakistan, did not attempt to slow down and appeared to aim intentionally for the crowds as shoppers screamed and ran.
“I just saw this huge black truck speeding through the markets crushing so many people and then all the lights went out and everything was destroyed. I could hear screaming and then we all froze. Then suddenly people started to move and lift all the wreckage off people, trying to help whoever was there,” Australian tourist Trisha O’Neill told the media.
There was “blood and bodies everywhere,” she said.

IDF Destroys Hamas Outpost After Taking Fire From Gaza Border

Shots were fired at IDF troops stationed near the southern part of the Gaza-Israel border on Monday morning, prompting the IDF to respond aggressively by shelling and destroying a Hamas military post with tank fire.

The Israeli soldiers came under fire while guarding a civilian engineering crew working near the border fence. No one was injured, and no damage was reported.

The IDF quickly retaliated, firing three tank shells at a Gaza military post held by the Hamas terror organization and demolishing it.
Other than a warning to farmers working in the area to briefly leave their fields and remain inside, no disruptions were reported.

Ivanka Trump Scopes Out DC-Area Synagogues Before Washington Move
Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner Shop DC Synagogues Before Inauguration Day
By Abra Forman December 19, 2016 , 10:30 am
“I will declare Thy name unto my brethren; in the midst of the congregation will I praise Thee.” (Psalms 22:23)
Ivanka Trump, the Jewish daughter of President-elect Donald Trump, and her husband Jared Kushner are reportedly looking into which Washington, DC synagogue congregation to join before they move to the capital for the tenure of Trump’s presidency.

A representative for the Orthodox family of five – Kushner and Ivanka have three children together – inquired at the Ohev Sholom synagogue, located in DC’s Shepherd Park neighborhood, about a possible membership, the New York Post reported on Sunday.

Ohev Sholom (“Lovers of Peace” in Hebrew) is the district’s oldest modern Orthodox synagogue, first established in 1886. Congregant Diana Furchtgott-Roth, a member for 12 years, calls the community “politically diverse” and welcoming.

“We are open to everybody,” Furchtgott-Roth said. “We have a summer camp, excellent lunches on Shabbat, we are politically diverse, and there are plenty of nice homes in our neighborhood.”

However, the synagogue is not without controversy. The congregation’s leader, Rabbi Shmuel Herzfeld, is an outspoken critic of the Ivanka’s father. At last year’s AIPAC conference, Rabbi Herzfeld interrupted Trump’s address to warn, “Do not listen to this man. He is wicked. He inspires racists and bigots.”
He wrote on Facebook after the incident that he “felt the obligation as a rabbi to declare [Trump’s] wickedness to the world.”

The inquiry at Ohev Sholom suggests that the family is looking to relocate nearby. Orthodox Jews may not drive on the Sabbath or holidays, so observant families must live within walking distance of their synagogues.

Currently, the Trump-Kushner family belongs to the Congregation Kehilath Jeshurun, located on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. They can be seen on the Sabbath walking back and forth between the synagogue and their home.

Both Ivanka and Kushner are expected to take on significant roles in Trump’s White House administration, necessitating a family move to the Washington.

After Soccer Victory, Israeli Athlete Reveals T-shirt Proclaiming "Hashem is God" in Hebrew
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz December 19, 2016 , 1:30 pm
“But they that wait for Hashem shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall walk, and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31 (The Israel Bible™)
Reveling in his joy at scoring the game-winning second goal for his Bavarian soccer team on Sunday night, Almog Cohen, a native Israeli, surprised the crowd by revealing who was really behind his victory. He lifted his red team jersey and uncovered a t-shirt proudly displaying the Hebrew words, “השם הוא האלוקים” – Hashem is God.

When asked about the shirt after the match, Cohen explained, “I am a person with a lot of faith. I have to thank Shalev Menashe (a retired Israeli soccer player). It is his shirt. He visited me and I promised that if I got a goal, I would show it.”

Cohen’s t-shirt became a social media hit. Israeli news site Yediot Ahronot featured the photo on its Facebook page and garnered hundreds of positive comments, with many calling it a kiddush Hashem (a sanctification of God’s name) and labelling Cohen a tzaddik (holy man).

“Long live Israel! It is very exciting because there is nothing like a strong belief in the Creator. Even if you are surrounded by enemies, never doubt there is someone who protects you,” wrote Norit Ifergen in Hebrew.

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

Also in Hebrew, Tzion Ezrad noted that the action was all the more meaningful for its location. “On German soil, we need to give them this response, that despite everything, Israel is still alive,” he wrote.

One anonymous comment on Sport 5, a Hebrew language sports site, read, “It is important to show that we accept the rule of Heaven, even in front of the non-Jews, so that they will accept it without hate. More power to you, Almog!”

Another anonymous Hebrew comment on the site said, “It is a pleasure to see a Jew proud of his Judaism.”

Cohen played for Maccabi Netanya in Israel from 2006 until 2010, and was the Israeli Premier League Runner-up in 2006. He began been playing in the German Bundesliga soccer league in 2010, and for Ingolstadt in 2013.

Outgoing Ki-Moon Admits: Yes, UN is 'Disproportionately' Biased Against Israel
By JNS December 18, 2016 , 8:30 am
“How long will ye judge unjustly, and respect the persons of the wicked?” Psalms 92:2 (The Israel Bible™)
United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon addresses his final press conference, at UN headquarters Dec. 16, 2016. (UN Photo/Eskinder Debebe)
United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who is stepping down at the end of the year, acknowledged in a departing speech that there is “disproportionate” bias against Israel at the world body.

“We must never accept bias against Israel within U.N. bodies,” Ban said Friday.

Ban went on to admit that the U.N. has a “disproportionate volume of resolutions, reports and conferences criticizing Israel,” and that “in many cases, rather than helping the Palestinian cause, this reality has hampered the ability of the U.N. to fulfill its role effectively.”

Israeli Ambassador to the U.N. Danny Danon commended Ban’s statement and noted the disproportionate number of anti-Israel resolutions passed at the U.N. in recent years.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/279-Store-IHM-600WIDE.jpg

“The secretary-general admitted the clear truth—the U.N.’s hypocrisy towards Israel has broken records over the past decade. During this time the U.N. passed 223 resolutions condemning Israel while only eight resolutions condemning the Syrian regime as it has massacred its citizens over the past six years. This is absurd,” said Danon.

At the same time, Ban urged Israeli lawmakers to reconsider the controversial outpost bill, which would legalize Israeli settlements on private Palestinian land.

“I strongly urge legislators to reconsider advancing this bill, which will have negative legal consequences for Israel and substantially diminish the chances for Arab-Israeli peace,” Ban said.

Significant Drop in Terror Attacks Reported In November
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz December 16, 2016 , 1:47 pm
“A time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.” Ecclesiastes 3:8 (The Israel Bible™)

The Israeli Security Agency (Shabak), also known as the Shin Bet, reported a 38 percent drop in terror attacks in November when compared to the previous month. This was largely due to a 72 percent drop in the attacks in the capital, Jerusalem.

A total of 95 attacks, including 72 firebomb attacks, were reported in November compared to 153 in October. The drop in the number of attacks was most evident in Jerusalem, where there were nine attacks, compared to 48 in October. In Judea and Samaria, 84 attacks were reported in November, as opposed to 103 in October.

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

There were no rocket or mortars fired at Israel in November as compared to two attacks that originated from the Gaza Strip in October.

The November attacks resulted in one casualty. A security officer was slightly injured in a shooting attack at an IDF checkpoint near Tulkarm on November 3. This was a significant improvement over October, when 23 Israelis were wounded and two were killed.

According to Israeli government statistics, since 13 September 2015, 42 people have been killed in terrorist attacks and 577 people (including 4 Palestinians) injured.

According to recent article in Ma’an News, the Palestinian news service, 235 Palestinians were killed in the last year. Out of this number, two Palestinians were killed in attacks by Palestinians. Two more were killed by themselves while carrying out attacks, so their deaths cannot be attributed to Israeli security.

The statistics do not include rock-throwing or arson attacks.

Israel’s Top Spy Travels to New York to Brief Trump on Middle East

The head of the Mossad, Israel’s international intelligence agency, traveled to New York to meet with President-elect Donald Trump’s staff for an intelligence briefing on Middle East issues last week, reported Ynet News.

Mossad chief Yossi Cohen, accompanied by a high-ranking security delegation from Israel, briefed Trump’s team on the Iranian nuclear deal, Syria’s civil war, terror threats in the region, and the Palestinian conflict. The meeting, not highly publicized, was discreetly arranged by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Israeli Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer was also present at the briefing, which took place at Trump Tower in Manhattan.

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

Also on the agenda was an appeal by the Israeli delegation requesting Trump help oppose a UN Security Council resolution due to come up for a vote before Trump’s inauguration. The resolution labels communities in Judea and Samaria illegal and in effect calls on the international community to boycott Israel.

Israeli officials and pro-Israel American lawmakers, concerned that President Barack Obama will chose not to veto the proposal as he has in the past, have urged the White House to continue upholding Israel’s interests at the UN in the administration’s last days.

Many pro-Israel groups believe the future Trump administration will represent a sea change for US-Israel relations, which, while always close, cooled during Obama’s tenure. Trump has already signaled that he is serious about his campaign promise to move the American embassy to Jerusalem and has appointed as ambassador David Friedman, a religious Jew expected to strongly support hardline measures in favor of settlements and a Jewish Jerusalem.

The Left’s Never-Ending War
By Caroline Glick December 14, 2016 , 10:00 am
The push among the American Left to discredit the results of last month’s presidential election entered a new phase last Friday with the White House’s announcement that outgoing US President Barack Obama has ordered US intelligence agencies to review evidence of Russian hacking in last month’s elections on behalf of President-elect Donald Trump.

The investigation itself is unlikely to lead to any conclusive results. The FBI, which is responsible for carrying out this sort of investigation, saw no evidence that Russian hacking was aimed specifically at assisting Trump’s campaign against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Despite this, Obama has chosen to make the probe the top priority of US intelligence agencies.

He urged them to finish their investigation before he leaves office. And, according to his deputy press secretary Eric Schultz, he aims to publicize as many the findings as he can.

Friday afternoon, Schultz said, “We’re going to make public as much as we can. As you can imagine, something like this might include sensitive and even classified information. When that report is submitted, we’re going to take a look. We want to brief Congress and the relevant stakeholders, possibly state directors.”

Democratic Senator Ron Wyden responded positively to Schultz’s statement. “This is good news,” he said. “Declassifying and releasing information about the Russian government and the US election, and doing so quickly, must be a priority.”

But why disclose the findings of an inconclusive investigation? There is only one reason to do so: to delegitimize the election results and so make the Trump administration radioactive for Democrats

Once a pall of suspicion is cast over the legitimacy of Trump’s presidency by the outgoing Democratic White House, no self-respecting Democrat with a survival instinct will be willing to cooperate with the Trump administration.

It is no coincidence that Obama ordered the probe hot on the heels of Green Party candidate Jill Stein’s failed recount bid. The purpose of Stein’s recount, for which she raised more money than she raised for her entire presidential campaign, was identical to the purpose of the probe. There was no chance that the recounts in the Rust Belt states that swerved toward Republicans and sealed Trump’s victory would change the election results. The point of the recount, like the espionage probe and the “fake news” meme, is to keep the faithful believing.

They may not have Congress. They may not have the White House. But by God, they are going to make the other guys choke on their victory.

This has become the purpose of the Left, not only in the US but throughout the Western world over the past decade or so. As their promised panaceas to their nations’ problems have failed one by one, in country after country, leftist politicians, ideologues, financiers and activists have kept their movements going not by offering alternative policies that might actually work or by suggesting that they work with their political and ideological opponents for the betterment of their countries. They have kept their faithful in the tent by feeding them a steady diet of hatred for the other side.

This is how things work in Israel.

Long gone are the days when leftists argued passionately about their ideal of land for peace, a passion which informed their actions for a generation.

After the peace process with the PLO was exposed as a jihad, after unilateral withdrawals brought war from Lebanon and Gaza, the Left knows that its policies will never win the public to its side.

So it has moved on to the politics of personal and social destruction.

The most blatant aspect of this continuous campaign of destruction and delegitimization is the Left’s campaign against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, his wife Sara and, increasingly, their children.

Consider the ongoing criminal probe into Mrs.

Netanyahu’s management of the prime minister’s residence.

A week and a half ago, Channel 2 broadcast alleged protocols from Sara Netanyahu’s 12-hour investigation by the national fraud division. According to the broadcast protocols, Mrs. Netanyahu was upbraided by investigators demanding to know why she told caterers that her dinner guests were foreigners rather than Israelis and why she claimed more people were coming to dinner than actually came.

She was grilled about a thousand shekel bonus paid to a worker at the prime minister’s residence who helped her take care of her aging father when his nurse was on her day off.

Even the reporters sitting in the television studio couldn’t believe what they were hearing. How is it possible that Mrs. Netanyahu was interrogated for 12 hours about schnitzels? The answer is clear enough. The purpose of the constant investigations of Mrs. Netanyahu is twofold.

First, they are aimed at demonizing the Netanyahu family as corrupt. It doesn’t matter what Netanyahu did or didn’t do. It doesn’t matter that the investigation appears to be entirely frivolous.

The point of the investigation isn’t to put Sara Netanyahu in jail. It is to tar her and her good-for-nothing husband as corrupt.

The second purpose of the prolonged chicken-dinner investigation was to make it impossible for Netanyahu to function. How can any husband work while his wife is being interrogated by the national fraud division? At around the same time that Mrs. Netanyahu was being interrogated about “schnitzel-gate,” the media were broadcasting daily headlines about an alleged corruption scandal related to Netanyahu’s decision five years ago to approve the acquisition of three more submarines from Germany. The media alleged – in stories blasted across page 1 headlines in the major papers and opening the nightly news broadcasts night after night – that Netanyahu’s decision to approve the submarine purchase was motivated by the fact that his personal attorney, and cousin, David Shimron, represented one of the German companies involved in the sale.

It took less than a week for the allegations to fall apart. But that doesn’t mean the story is over.

Just as Obama decided to use his last weeks in office to discredit Trump’s victory despite the FBI’s rejection of the allegation that Russia had a hand in it, so the Israeli Left uses the baseless allegations of corruption against Netanyahu and his family to incite its members to continue to view him as illegitimate.

Sunday night the Erel Margalit, the multimillionaire venture capitalist turned Labor MK turned populist rabble rouser, joined forces with Eldad Yaniv, Ehud Barak’s former spinmaster who has reinvented himself as a populist man of the people.

The two posted an online video calling for the public to join them in demanding that Netanyahu be investigated.

Yaniv and Margalit took the red headlines related to the German submarine purchase and peppered them with photos of Netanyahu smoking a cigar and laughing with his sons and wife, and living the good life with a friend on the beach. They alleged that Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit is the Netanyahu family’s consigliere and that Police Inspector General Roni Elshech is in his pocket.

Yaniv and Margalit brought no substantive claims.

Their montage was pure vilification. They argued irrationally that high food prices are caused by the submarine purchase.

The purpose of the film is obvious. Bereft of an attractive platform to sell the public, they are selling the only thing they have left to rally their ever dwindling base: hatred.

Since last month’s US election, a minority of Democrats have called for their party to moderate its policies. Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan ran a failed bid against Rep. Nancy Pelosi to serve as Democratic minority chairman in the House of Representatives arguing just that case.

Ryan’s loss, like Obama’s espionage probe makes clear that the Democrats will not consider a more moderate course. The majority has no intention of changing its positions. Rather, they intend to keep their adherents on a war footing so that they won’t have the opportunity to even consider a course correction.

By veering from the recount to fake news allegations to the Russian hacking story, the radicals who control the Democratic Party keeps their activists on a war footing. The faithful are given no opportunity to reflect even for a moment on the substantive issues that formed the heart of the presidential race.

The glum conclusion from all of this is clear enough. With their policies rejected by voters, the purpose of the Left isn’t to govern. It is to render their societies ungovernable.

Trump or Hamas
By Daniel Greenfield December 13, 2016 , 9:00 am
The Islamic Society of North America was named by the Justice Department as an unindicted co-conspirator in funding Hamas. It was linked to two Hamas funding fronts, the Holy Land Foundation and KindHearts. ISNA’s checks were made payable to the “Palestinian Mujahadeen” or “Holy Warriors” which was a name used by Hamas.

ISNA’s co-founder Sami Al-Arian was the local head of Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Mousa Abu Marzook, a top Hamas official listed by the Treasury Department as a Specially Designated Terrorist, received tens of thousands of dollars from ISNA.

This should have come as no surprise as both ISNA and Hamas are arms of the Muslim Brotherhood.

But the American Jewish Committee has decided to team up with the financiers of the murder of Jews to oppose Trump. The left wing Jewish group and an Islamist organization that wrote out checks to Islamic terrorists enabling them to kill Jews have formed the “Muslim-Jewish Advisory Council”.

Statements from both ISNA and the AJC made it clear that this was a reaction to Trump’s win.

“We are uniting to help the administration navigate in the proper constitutional manner, to uphold freedom of religion and constitutional rights for all American citizens,” Eftakhar Alam of ISNA said.

“It is a reaction to some of the bigotry and hate speech that came out of the campaign,” Robert Silverman, the AJC’s director of Muslim-Jewish relations said. “We’re concerned about the public discourse in the whole country. We’re also concerned about messages that originated within the two communities. The Trump phenomenon is only going to make it come together more quickly.”

The love affair that birthed the Wolf-Sheep Advisory Council is mostly unrequited. While the AJC loudly trumpets its new friendship, as of this writing ISNA has yet to inform its brethren of the alliance with the sons of apes and pigs in its news section. ISNA’s list of interfaith partners doesn’t even mention the AJC.

But appeasing those who hate you wins more enthusiasm from the appeasers than the appeased.

Farooq Kathwari, the Muslim co-chair of the Muslim-Jewish Advisory Council, had his name on a report by the American Muslim Task Force which defended Muslim donations to Islamic terrorist groups including Hezbollah. “It was difficult for Muslim Americans… to ease the plight of Lebanese civilians without risking scrutiny by the U.S. government for aiding organizations connected with Hezbollah,” the report complained.

The Muslim council members include ISNA’s Imam Mohamed Magid who gave a diversity award to a CAIR official who had declared that Jews had incurred the wrath of Allah. Magid had called for an end to Israel’s blockade of Hamas in Gaza and the ISNA statement it was appended to had decried that Islamic terrorists had not been consulted in ceasefire negotiations.

Also on the Council is ISNA’s Sayyid Syeed who had declared, “Our job is to change the Constitution of America”. He had formerly headed up the Muslim Students Association and worked in a senior position at the International Institute of Islamic Thought, another unindicted co-conspirator in funding Hamas whose ranks included a number of Islamic terrorists fighting against Israel.

But it’s more interesting to note who in ISNA’s leadership isn’t on the Council.

There’s Iqbal Unus whose home had been raided in connection with an investigation into Hamas and Islamic Jihad funding. There’s also the co-founder of ISNA, Muzammil Siddiqi, who hosted and translated a speech by the infamous Blind Sheikh, linked to the World Trade Center bombing, in which he declared, “If you are not going to the jihad, then you are neglecting the rules of Allah.”

Siddiqi predicted the Islamic conquest and destruction of Israel. “In a few years we will be celebrating with each other the victory of Islam in Palestine. Insh’allah, we shall be celebrating the coming of the Masjid al-Aqsa under the Islamic rule. We shall be celebrating insh’allah the coming of Jerusalem and the whole land of Palestine insh’allah and the establishment of the Islamic State throughout that area.“

It would be a little awkward to have the man who praised suicide bombers and called for the destruction of the Jewish State on the Muslim-Jewish Advisory Council.

But no doubt a way could be found to finesse the problem.

Siddiqi is still a prominent figure in ISNA. The Muslim-Jewish Advisory Council is a sick sad joke in which Jewish lefties ally with Jihadists against a pro-Israel administration while claiming that they share goals.

Which goals exactly does the American Jewish Committee share with Siddiqi? Is the AJC also anticipating the creation of an Islamic State in Jerusalem?

Instead of representing the needs of the Jewish community, the AJC has dived into the left-wing gutter, wailing against Trump and making alliances with the enemy to protect them from Trump.

Heading up the AJC’s effort is Robert Silverman. Silverman is a State Department veteran with plenty of experience in the Muslim world. From the start he seemed far more intent on agitating on behalf of Muslims and against the critics of Islam than for Jews.

His pitch to Jews was collaborate now and perhaps our new Muslim overlords will be grateful.

“Showing support at this critical time will lead to good results for the Jewish people down the road,” Silverman said. It didn’t work with Mohammed or in Israel or Europe. But it’s bound to work this time.

He warned American Jews not to complain about the risk of Muslim migration. “American Jews should be careful not to add to a climate of fear that exists in our country regarding immigrants.”

The joint group will, among other things, lobby for refugees. The remaining Jewish refugees are fleeing Muslim violence and hate in Europe. If America is swamped by Muslim migrants the way Europe was, where will American Jews flee all these “refugees” to?

Meanwhile Silverman retweeted a message of approval from Glenn Greenwald who had criticized the inclusion of Hamas and Hezbollah on the terror list and described them as being “dedicated to protecting their citizens against the State of Israel.” He complained, “and yet it is criminal in the United States to do anything that is deemed to be material support for Hamas and Hezbollah.”

Greenwald had also spoken of “the role Judaism plays in the decades-long oppression by the Israelis of Palestinians.”

Instead of fighting anti-Semitism, the American Jewish Committee was allying with anti-Semites.

While Muslim hate groups supported by ISNA terrorize Jewish students on campuses, the AJC expressed concern about “hate” against Muslims on campuses.

The media and left-wing groups are bombarding Jews daily with alarmist warnings about Trump while urging them to ally with our Muslim “friends”. Here’s what an alliance with those friends looks like.

Left-wing groups like the AJC have sold out the Jewish community by taking the side of Muslims over their Jewish victims. They have allied with Islamic hate groups supportive not of Jews, but of the murder of Jews.

And now they are screaming their heads off about Donald Trump.

Their Muslim friends, whether it’s Keith Ellison or ISNA, have defended anti-Semitism and attacked the Jewish State. American Jews have a choice between trying to appease Hamas or fighting against it.

The AJC has chosen its side. It has sided with the financiers and inciters of the murder of Jews.

American Jews have a simple choice to make. They can either believe the lies or hear the truth. They can either side with their killers or resist.

The AJC has made the choice very clear and simple. It’s either Hamas or Donald Trump.

Moving US embassy to Jerusalem will end peace process, Palestinians warn

December 18, 2016

The Trump administration says that moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is a ‘top priority,’ while the Palestinians are threatening that such a move would have repercussions.

If President-elect Donald Trump follows through with his pledge to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, it will be the final death blow to the failed peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, the Palestinian Authority stated on Friday.

Senior Palestinian official Saeb Erekat warned that the implementation of Trump’s pledge would destroy any prospects for peace with Israel, Israel Radio reported over the weekend.

Erekat, the chief Palestinian negotiator, issued the veiled threat a day after Trump announced his decision to nominate David Friedman as his ambassador to Israel. Friedman is a staunch supporter of moving of the US embassy to Jerusalem.

Speaking to foreign journalists, Erekat said Jerusalem was a final-status issue to be negotiated between Israel and the Palestinians.

Successive US administrations have avoided formally recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. If Trump makes good on his campaign promise, it would change decades of US policy, possibly enraging the Muslims and drawing international condemnation.

“No one should take any decisions which may preempt or prejudge (negotiations) because this will be the destruction of the peace process as a whole,” Erekat said.

Meanwhile, sources close to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lauded Friedman’s appointment on Friday. “The prime minister knows that the president-elect has complete trust, and that he expects to work with Friedman closely and tightly,” the aides said.

Trump’s New Israel Ambassador Looks Forward to Serving From “Israel’s Eternal Capital, Jerusalem”
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz December 16, 2016 , 10:43 am
“When the righteous are increased, the people rejoice; but when the wicked beareth rule, the people sigh.” Proverbs 29:2)

President elect Donald Trump announced on Thursday evening that he will nominate David Friedman to be the US Ambassador to Israel.

Trump made the announcement on his transition team website.

“The bond between Israel and the United States runs deep, and I will ensure there is no daylight between us when I’m President,” said President-elect Trump. “As the United States’ Ambassador to Israel, David Friedman will maintain the special relationship between our two countries. He has been a long-time friend and trusted advisor to me. His strong relationships in Israel will form the foundation of his diplomatic mission and be a tremendous asset to our country as we strengthen the ties with our allies and strive for peace in the Middle East. Nothing is more critical than protecting the security of our citizens at home and abroad.”

“I am deeply honored and humbled by the confidence placed in me by President-elect Trump to represent the United States as its ambassador to Israel,” Friedman said in statement on Thursday. “I intend to work tirelessly to strengthen the unbreakable bond between our two countries and advance the cause of peace within the region, and look forward to doing this from the US embassy in Israel’s eternal capital, Jerusalem.”

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

Friedman reportedly does not see Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria as obstacles to peace.In an interview with Haaretz in June, Friedman stated the Trump supports Israel annexing parts of the areas.

Last month , Friedman and Jason Greenblatt, the other Israel-US adviser to Trump, released a a 16-point position paper which included:

Israel is the state of the Jewish people, who have lived in that land for 3,500 years.

Israel is a staunch ally of the U.S. and a key partner in the global war against Islamic jihadism. Military cooperation and coordination between Israel and the U.S. must continue to grow.

The U.S. should veto any United Nations votes that unfairly single out Israel and will work in international institutions and forums, including in our relations with the European Union, to oppose efforts to delegitimize Israel, impose discriminatory double standards against Israel, or to impose special labeling requirements on Israeli products or boycotts on Israeli goods.

The U.S. should cut off funds for the UN Human Rights Council, a body dominated by countries presently run by dictatorships that seems solely devoted to slandering the Jewish State. UNESCO’s attempt to disconnect the State of Israel from Jerusalem is a one-sided attempt to ignore Israel’s 3,000-year bond to its capital city, and is further evidence of the enormous anti-Israel bias of the United Nations.

The U.S. should view the effort to boycott, divest from, and sanction (BDS) Israel as inherently anti-Semitic. The BDS movement is just another attempt by the Palestinians to avoid having to commit to a peaceful co-existence with Israel. The false notion that Israel is an occupier should be rejected.

A two-state solution between Israel and the Palestinians appears impossible as long as the Palestinians are unwilling to renounce violence against Israel or recognize Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state.

The U.S. should support direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians without preconditions, and will oppose all Palestinian, European and other efforts to bypass direct negotiations between parties in favor of an imposed settlement.

The U.S. will recognize Jerusalem as the eternal and indivisible capital of the Jewish state and Mr. Trump’s Administration will move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem.

12-Year-Old Muslim Boy Plants Bomb at German Christmas Market
“Even a child is known by his doings, whether his work be pure, and whether it be right.”
(Proverbs 20:11)
It was announced on Friday that a 12 year old German-Iraqi boy was detained by police for planting two bombs in Germany, making him the youngest person accused of terror related crimes in Europe to date.

Focus Magazine reported on Friday that first incident occurred when the boy placed a bomb at the Christmas Market in Ludwigshafen on November 26. The boy placed a backpack near the market containing a homemade bomb composed of gunpowder surrounded with nails and screws. The bomb failed to go off. He made another attempt on December 5, placing a similar bomb near the city hall. A passer-by reported the suspicious object to police and the bomb-squad set off a controlled explosion, destroying the bomb. The boy was taken in by police on the same day.

The boy was allegedly radicalized by an unknown member of the Islamic State (ISIS) and is being held in a juvenile detention center.

In an ironic twist, the announcement came two days after a story in Reuters with the headline, “Refugees bring a taste of Syria to German Christmas market”.
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/433-BIN-Subscribe-BiblicalProphecy-600WIDE.jpg
The boy is the youngest suspect to be arrested for terror related crimes in Europe, but Israel has been coping with this phenomenon since the beginning of its present wave of violence over one year ago, becoming the focus of international criticism when the Knesset passed a law permitting terrorists as young as 12-years old to be jailed.
In October 2015, a 13-year old Palestinian and his 15-year old cousin armed with knives attacked a 13-year old Israeli and a 25-year old Israeli. The younger Israeli was wounded critically.
On year ago, an 11-year old Palestinian and his 14-year old cousin armed with knives attacked a security guard on the light rail system, wounding him multiple times. The 11-year old was released without being charged.

The Election Results Deniers
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz December 15, 2016 , 12:30 pm
“And after this, Avraham buried Sara his wife in the cave of the field of Machpelah before Mamre–the same is Chevron–in the land of Canaan.” Genesis 23:19 (The Israel Bible™)
The opening to the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron. (Video screenshot)
To combat the recent United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) resolution declaring Judaism has no connection to the holy sites in Israel and educate the growing wave of Bible deniers, the Jews of Hebron have made a simple video with a powerful message: the story of Abraham’s purchase and his covenant with God stand as solid as the stones surrounding the cave.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/yishai.png

Yishai Fleischer (Screenshot)
Hebron is the city of the patriarchs as written in the Bible. This claim should be obvious, but a global trend is developing in which history is being rewritten, and basic tenets of the Bible are erased. Yishai Fleisher, the international spokesman for the Hebron Jewish community, explained how this happened.

“100 years ago, everyone knew the stories of the Bible,” Fleisher told Breaking Israel News. “There was no way anyone could say these lies back then. Because the Bible has lost its media presence, it is now possible to pull the wool over people’s eyes about these basic truths.”

For those who accept the Bible, the Jewish claim to Hebron is self-evident. For those who reject it, this basic truth is not so clear.

“Outside of the Bible, there is very little clear information about the holy places,” noted Fleisher, “Which allows organizations like UNESCO to create a false narrative. UNESCO is a legitimate arm of the jihad.”

Though Fleisher’s claim against the UN seems harsh, it is difficult to refute. In September, the day after Yom Kippur, UNESCO passed a resolution proposed by Arab states which granted Islam sole religious claim to the Temple Mount, the Western Wall, Rachel’s Tomb, Bethlehem, and Hebron. Raising international fury, the resolution is seen as pure farce in Israel.

Secrets of the Tomb

The Hebron video graphically illustrates Judaism’s Biblical claims to Hebron. Fleisher introduces Noam Arnon, a resident of Kiryat Arba and Hebron for 36 years and a leader of the movement for the renewal of Jewish settlement in Hebron. The two walk down a stone stairway leading to the ancient gate of the city. Arnon explained the stairs were built over 4,500 years ago, 700 years before the patriarch Abraham set foot in Hebron. This gate was the setting for Abraham’s purchase of the Machpela, the cave in which he buried his wife, Sarah.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/381-image.png

The impressive structure, built by Herod 2,000 years ago with the same distinctive stones he used to upgrade the Second Temple, marks the entrance to the cave that lies underneath. Arnon describes how 30 years ago he was among a privileged few to descend five stories into the passageway beneath the large shrine. According to Arnon, he and his companions found a cave filled with human bones and artifacts dating back to the First Temple period. He also says that upon exploring deeper, they discovered a second cave with even older artifacts he claims date back to the time of Abraham.

Despite a plethora of archaeological proof and historical accounts, the movement to deny these basics of the Bible is growing stronger. In an obscene twist, Hebron itself is being used to disprove Jewish claims to the Land of Israel.

“It is shocking how many people fully believe that Jews are appropriating the Palestinian culture, stealing the tombs of our own fathers,” Fleisher said. “Anti-Zionist organizations in conjunction with the Jihad have begun to use Hebron as a platform, running tours that teach the ‘Occupation narrative’.”

“With unbelievable audacity, the European funded NGOs (non-governmental organizations) bring naive people into the city that Jews have lived in for 4,000 years and tell them that we are foreign occupiers,” Fleisher said. “It is an incredible testament to how much they can warp the truth and how vigilant we have to be about the truth.”

The video is part of a campaign to combat this wave of misinformation and propaganda. But Fleisher sees a more powerful way of combatting the growing plague of misinformation: visitors coming to Hebron to bear witness for the patriarchs. On the Sabbath when the Torah portion describing Abraham’s purchase in Hebron was read, 25,000 people gathered to proclaim that the covenant God made with Abraham was still strong.

“The small group of Jews who live in Hebron are holding the portal open for the 700,000 visitors who come every year to bear witness to the truth that this is the plot of land that Abraham bought,” Fleisher said.

The UNESCO vote shocked many, and with Hebron on the front-lines, Fleisher knows exactly what is as stake.

“We know what will happen if the Jews lose control of the site,” he explained to Breaking Israel News. “From 1267, when the Mamaluks conquered the region, until 1967 when the Jews returned, we were barred from entering the Machpela, or going up to the Temple Mount.”

Biblical Language Brings You Closer to God, Says Hebrew Roots
By Dr. Rivkah Lambert Adler December 15, 2016 , 10:30 am
“And the whole earth was of one language and of one speech.” Genesis 11:1 (The Israel Bible™)

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/book-magic.jpg
Christians and members of the Hebrew Roots movement are united in their view that learning Hebrew is an important part of understanding the Judaic origins of their faith.
Speaking to Breaking Israel News, Bob O’Dell, pro-Israel Christian, author and co-founder of Root Source, described his interest in Hebrew as two-fold. As a frequent traveler to Israel, O’Dell recognizes that learning modern, conversational Hebrew could help him “to fit in a bit better when visiting Israel.”
However, his primary interest is “to understand the Bible better. What motivates me here is the absolute conviction that I am not ‘seeing’ but a small fraction of the potential insights in the various passages by reading an English translation.”
Expanding on this idea, O’Dell expressed his belief that Christians can benefit from learning Hebrew because it will give them “the ability to look at the Biblical text without being fully dependent on previous translators.”
For O’Dell, seeking truth is an important part of his spiritual journey. As a result, he is motivated to understand the Bible in its original language. “I want to get the words directly no matter how difficult they are to hear,” O’Dell stated.
Asked how Jewish people can help Christians learn Hebrew, O’Dell said that, beyond teaching the basics of Hebrew reading, “I think that Jews need to help Christians learn how to study with the Jewish learning methods of interactive, respectful debate. It is not enough to learn Hebrew. We [Christians] need to learn how to perceive the scriptures in a more Jewish style,” he said, referring to the use of ancient Jewish commentaries.
Israel365’s Director of Christian Relations Donna Jollay spoke to Breaking Israel News about her emotional and spiritual connection to Hebrew.

“When I was literally and radically saved by God 20 years ago, He gave me a Jewish heart and I started being drawn to the most unusual things. After that happened, I can remember being in church regularly for the first time in my life and it still tickles me when I remember how excited I got when I learned that ‘Amen’ was Hebrew. Then I learned that ‘Halleluyah’ was Hebrew, too! And I was even more excited to learn that it meant ‘Praise the Lord.’
“It feeds my soul to learn Hebrew. Every nuance is a revelation of God and His awesomeness and love. Learning it knits me together even more with Him and His beloved Hebrew/Jewish people,” Jollay expressed with great enthusiasm.

On a more practical level, she explained that Hebrew is “the language of the Hebrews who are the overwhelming majority of God’s focus in [the Bible] and throughout history. It’s the language of the God of Avraham, Yitzchak and Yakov and I believe it’s the language we’ll all be speaking [in Messianic days].”
For Al McCarn, a member of the Hebrew Roots movement and Executive Director of B’ney Yosef North America, Hebrew is connected to his very identity. “My primary motivation for learning Hebrew is because I have come to think of it as the language of my people. I believe the Torah awakening among those of us who have come from Christian backgrounds is the prophesied restoration of the House of Yosef/Ephraim, which means I identify as a Hebrew. That’s why I want to become competent in the language of Israel, the Hebrew nation.”
“Also, I want to learn the Bible in the its original language so I have a better understanding of the Word of God and the people of God,” he added.
McCarn discussed how Jewish people can help those who come from the Hebrew Roots movement. “What I have found is that the knowledge and understanding Jews possess regarding the Tanakh (Hebrew Bible) and the Hebrew language in which much of it was written, is something we are sorely lacking.
“If we begin to study Hebrew (either ancient or modern) with any degree of seriousness, we will learn that the best teachers are Jews, and that we do have much that we can contribute to one another.”

Mikell Clayton, President of the Joined to Hashem Hebrew Roots ministry, sees learning Hebrew as a means to an end. “Learning Hebrew is not my focus, but rather learning Torah as the way of life given to those who desire to worship the one true Elohim (God), the Elohim of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

“Since the Torah was written in Hebrew, the more familiar I can become with the language, the closer I can come to the original meaning of a life lived by Torah instructions.” Clayton encouraged Jewish people to help “in this experience of drawing near to HaShem (God) through His revealed Torah by opening their hearts to people who have open hearts.”

Jonathan Lipnick, a Biblical Hebrew professor at the Israel Institute of Biblical Studies, has been teaching Biblical Hebrew for years and yet says, “With all of my experience and knowledge, I still find that there is more to uncover and learn every day.” In his live video sessions with students, Lipnick reveals the meanings behind Hebrew Scriptures and texts that are completely missed when reading their translations. “Many words in Hebrew have double or even triple meanings, and when you translate a phrase, you need to choose one of those meanings. It is amazing to me every time to see my students so excited when they discover something new about scriptures they thought they knew so well.”

Russia Will Conquer Israel Before Messiah, Predicts Missing Piece of 400-Year-Old Prophecy
Newly Revealed Prophecy: Russian Army Has Come to Mid-East to Conquer Israel
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz December 14, 2016 , 12:30 pm
“And thou son of man prophesy against Gog and say: Thus saith the Lord GOD: Behold I am against thee O Gog chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.” Ezekiel 39:1 (The Israel Bible™)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/russian-army-2.png

Though relations between Russian President Vladmir Putin and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appear friendly, the recently-revealed missing piece to a 400-year-old prophecy warns that Russia’s pre-Messianic intentions towards Israel might be far more aggressive than anyone suspects.

The prophecy, attributed to the Elijah ben Solomon Zalman, the leading Torah scholar of the 18th century known as the Vilna Gaon, states, “If the ships of the Kingdom of Russia cross the Bosphorous Straits (in Northwest Turkey), we need to put on our Shabbat clothes, because this is telling you that the coming of the Messiah is very close.”

The Vilna Gaon (Wikimedia Commons)
When Turkey shot down a Russian warplane in November 2015, nearly igniting a war between the two countries, the prophecy seemed to be materializing. Two months ago, the Russian Navy sailed for the Mediterranean, bolstering their already formidable military presence in the region and setting the stage for the prophesied confrontation to occur at any moment.

In a lecture last week, Rabbi Yekutiel Fisch, author of the Kabbalistic book Sod Hachashmal (“Secret of the Electricity”), noted that most people familiar with the prophecy credit it to the Gaon, but claimed that the teaching has even more ancient roots. Rabbi Fisch’s teaching was picked up by Yeranen Yaakov, a Jewish end-times blogger, who made the connection.

Rabbi Fisch attributed the original prophecy to Samson ben Pesah Ostropoli, a noted mystic who was killed in a pogrom in Poland in 1648. In his book Mahaneh Dan (“The Camp of Dan”), which has since been lost, Rabbi Ostropoli made the same claim about Russia conquering Turkey. But unlike the prophecy attributed to the Vilna Gaon, Rabbi Ostropoli’s original prophecy adds that Russia will do so with the true intention of conquering Israel.

Thus far, Israel seemed to be uncharacteristically unentangled in the growing Middle Eastern conflict centered around Syria, and the friction between Russia and Turkey doesn’t appear to involve Israel at all. But Russia has never been neutral in the region and all of Israel’s regional enemies bear Russian arms.

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

In Syria, the Russian military is currently assisting its ally, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, a long-time declared enemy of Israel, to overcome rebel forces in a bloody civil war. And in nearby Iran, which has vowed to wipe Israel off the map, Russia recently supplied the Iranian Revolutionary Guard with the state-of-the-art S-300 anti-air weapons system.

As to the diplomatic ties between Israel and Russia, Professor Efraim Inbar of the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies told Breaking Israel News that relations may not be as warm as they appear.

“These relations are based on specific and narrow understandings in order to prevent clashes,” Professor Inbar explained. “With Russian warplanes operating so close to the Israeli border this is necessary, and it is in Israel’s interest not to have any disputes with Russia. But there is no signed treaty or formal agreement.

“It should be remembered that Russia sides with Iran, supports Hezbollah, and even has relations with Hamas,” Professor Inbar warned.

In a lecture given last year, Rabbi Moshe Sternbuch, chief judge of the Edah HaChareidis in Jerusalem, discussed this prophetic teaching, asking why Turkey would antagonize Russia, since Russia is far superior militarily.

“We see in this the fulfillment of the teaching of our Sages that when Moshiach should come, God pits kingdoms against one another and they start war against their own will,” explained Rabbi Sternbuch.

The original version of the prophecy written by Rabbi Ostropoli notes that Israel will undergo many processes. At first, Israel will be under Turkish rule, after which it will be under British rule, and, in the end, Israel will be under the rule of Russia.

The Ottoman Empire ruled in Israel at the time Rabbi Ostropoli wrote his book, but the British Mandate in Palestine was still almost 300 years in the future when he predicted they would rule over Israel. Russia has never ruled Israel, but the Russian Army has never stood as close to Jerusalem as it does today.

Muslim Country Asks Expert Israel for Help Fighting Terror
By Abra Forman December 14, 2016 , 11:30 am
“Have we not all one father? Hath not one God created us?” Malachi 2:10 (The Israel Bible™)
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu meets with Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazarbayev, at the President’s Palace, on December 14, 2016. (Haim Zach / GPO)
Kazakhstan’s President Nursultan Nazarbayev announced at a joint press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday that he had requested Israel’s assistance in training its special forces to fight terror, a field in which the Jewish state is an expert.

The request follows several terror attacks in Kazakhstan which highlighted the country’s need for a more sophisticated approach to security threats. Israel, as the world leader in counter-terrorism measures and training, was a natural choice for help.

On a state visit to the Muslim-majority country, Netanyahu emphasized Israel’s desire to work and cooperate with Kazakhstan. He asked Nuzarabh for help in getting Israel accepted as a member of the UN Security Council (UNSC) in 2019, a position Israel has never held.

“My hope is, and I say this to all our friends, that the great partnership that we are building here will also be reflected in international forums like the UN. That’s beginning to happen. The ship doesn’t move overnight; we understand that, it’s a big ship. But it’s going to change, it’s changing already,” he said, noting that Israel had supported Kazakhstan’s successful bid for UNSC membership, which will begin in January 2017.

“Now, if you want a real change in the world, image the State of Israel on the Security Council of the United Nations,” Netanyahu said. “I think it’s possible and with your help it will be realized.”

The conversation, which took place at the presidential palace in Kazakhstan’s capital, Astana, represented a strengthening of ties between the Jewish state and the majority Sunni Muslim country. It followed a Tuesday visit by Netanyahu to neighboring Azerbaijan, where President Ilham Aliyev announced that he had signed contracts worth nearly $5 billion to buy defense and security equipment from Israel.

Kazakhstan and Israel also enjoy strong economic ties. Kazakhstan provides Israel with about 20 percent of its oil at a cost of about $700 million per year. Netanyahu wants to open up cooperation even more, he told a group of Kazakh business leaders, inviting them to discover Israel’s business potential.

The meeting marked 25 years of diplomatic ties between Kazakhstan and Israel. “The fact that Muslims and Jews are working together for the betterment of both our societies and our peoples is something that is important to us, but I think today for the world it’s important, for our region,” Netanyahu declared.

Does Joel 3:4 End of Days Prophecy Refer to Deadly Electromagnetic Pulse Attack?
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz December 12, 2016 , 12:30 pm
“The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the great and terrible day of Hashem come.” Joel 3:4 (The Israel Bible™)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/shutterstock_532979902-1.jpg
An end-of-days scenario that was impossible, even irrelevant, not so long ago is now being developed by America and Israel’s enemies in a manner that fits perfectly into Biblical prophecy. Experts predict it could wipe out 90 percent of America’s population and render the military ineffective, but if used against our enemies, it might even go unnoticed.

An electromagnetic pulse (EMP) is a powerful burst of electromagnetic energy capable of destroying susceptible electronic equipment over a wide area. EMPs do not harm living organisms or physical structures, but a single pulse can entirely disable a modern country by rendering all electronics useless. This would include disabling computers and permanently wiping out memory.
Shutting down electronics is more than an inconvenience. In its first report eleven years ago, the Congressional EMP Commission warned that one EMP attack could kill up to 90 percent of America’s civilian population within one year through starvation, disease, and societal collapse.

Arguing in favor of a two-state solution, MK Yair Lapid (Yesh Atid) said on Saturday that Israel should make the Palestinians “disappear” by erecting a wall to separate the two populations completely.
“We need to remove the Palestinians from our lives – we need to do this by building a high wall and making them disappear,” he told Channel 2 news. “Otherwise, there will be no peace. We do not want the two countries to be packed into a single state.”

The planes are scheduled to arrive at the Nevatim Air Base, in southern Israel, at 2 p.m. Monday.
IAF officials told Israel Radio that the the new arrivals indicate the beginning of the biggest development in Israel’s air capacity for the past 40 years. They say the planes’ stealth technologies and advanced combat features will ensure Israel’s military superiority in the region for decades to come.

Trump Team Scouting Jerusalem Locations for US Embassy

Moving the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is a “very big priority” for President-elect Donald Trump, said top aide and campaign manager Kellyanne Conway on Monday. According to a report by Israeli media, the Trump team is already scouting sites in Jerusalem for the new building.
“That is very big priority for this president-elect, Donald Trump,” Conway told radio host Hugh Hewitt in an interview on Trump’s White House transition.
“He made it very clear during the campaign, and as president-elect, I’ve heard him repeat it several times privately, if not publicly.”
Trump had promised make the controversial move several times during his presidential campaign, exciting Israeli leaders who anticipate an America which recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Doomsday” in Syria as Assad’s Forces Execute 82 Civilians in Cold Blood
“Keep me, O God; for I have taken refuge in Thee.” (Psalms 16:1)
Pro-government forces in Aleppo, Syria are now entering homes and shooting civilians in cold blood, the UN human rights office said on Tuesday. At least 82 civilians have been killed so far.
The military forces, who support President Bashar Assad, are currently taking the city of Aleppo over from rebel forces, making their way into the last of the rebel-held neighborhoods. Anyone with ties to the rebels who seized control of Aleppo in 2012 is being hunted and executed, say activists, including women and children.
“We have received reports of pro-government forces killing at least 82 civilians in four different neighborhoods – Bustan al-Qasr, al-Ferdous, al-Kallaseh, and al-Saleheen,” UN spokesman Rupert Colville said at a press conference on Tuesday. He called the reports “deeply disturbing.”
Another UN spokesman, Jens Laerke, said that the situation looked like “a complete meltdown of humanity in Aleppo.”

Of those killed, at least 11 were women and 13 were children. Reports from the scene say that bodies are left lying in the streets.
Terrified civilians are trapped and have nowhere to flee, leading some to begin bidding the world goodbye on social media from inside the chaotic ruins of Aleppo, still under constant bombing attacks.

Jimmy Carter Spreads Anti-Israel Venom Like Cancer
By Jonathan Feldstein
It’s always interesting when Jimmy Carter raises his head from the depths of his presidency in exile, like a perennial groundhog. The main difference is that when groundhogs raise their head, it forecasts either more winter or an early spring. In Carter’s case, it’s always gloom and blame of Israel As President Reagan famously and appropriately quipped, “There you go again.”
It’s novel for Jimmy Carter to use the anniversary of the UN Partition vote to be heard from most recently. He’s too smart to make errors of the magnitude that he has in his NY Times Op Ed, so I must write it off to his willfully misleading the reader. Let’s address some of his misrepresentations.
For starters, if on November 29, 1947 the Arabs (the only ones referred to as “Palestinians” then were Jews) had accepted the UN Partition Plan, they’d have a state today, side by side with Israel.
Carter disingenuously denies, this asserting that “peace is in danger of abrogation” as if Israel is the sole cause for the lack of peace. The fact is that if the Arabs laid down their weapons and stopped their rhetoric and incitement against Israel, they’d have peace tomorrow. He writes with arrogance as if only his voice is valid, but the truth is many former presidents and world leaders have spoken the truth which Carter conveniently ignores.

Germany Submits to Sharia Law
By Soeren Kern
A German court has ruled that seven Islamists who formed a vigilante patrol to enforce Sharia law on the streets of Wuppertal did not break German law and were simply exercising their right to free speech. A German court has ruled that seven Islamists who formed a vigilante patrol to enforce Sharia law on the streets of Wuppertal did not break German law and were simply exercising their right to free speech. The “politically correct” decision, which may be appealed, effectively authorizes the Sharia Police to continue enforcing Islamic law in Wuppertal.
The self-appointed “Sharia Police” distributed leaflets which established a “Sharia-controlled zone” in Wuppertal. The men urged both Muslim and non-Muslim passersby to attend mosques and to refrain from alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, gambling, music, pornography and prostitution.
Critics say the cases — especially those in which German law has taken a back seat to Sharia law — reflect a dangerous encroachment of Islamic law into the German legal system.
In June 2013, a court in Hamm ruled that anyone who contracts marriage according to Islamic law in a Muslim country and later seeks a divorce in Germany must abide by the original terms established by Sharia law. The landmark ruling effectively legalized the Sharia practice of “triple-talaq,” obtaining a divorce by reciting the phrase “I divorce you” three times.
A growing number of Muslims in Germany are consciously bypassing German courts altogether and instead are adjudicating their disputes in informal Sharia courts, which are proliferating across the country.

The Present and Future With Donald Trump
By Ira Sharkansky
Donald Trump is sending mixed messages, some of them more troubling than others. Americans might wonder why others are paying attention.
The answer is simple. The US aspires to influence the world, or at least large parts of it. And large parts of the world aspire to be helped, protected, left alone, or be led by the US example. Those feelings may not reflect any great admiration of the US, but just that it is likely to be a more responsive actor on the world stage than likely competitors.
Soothing words heard from Trump reflect his winding down from the shrill rhetoric of the campaign. He won’t bother with criminal charges against Hillary Clinton, and thereby he removes one potential political and media circus that could get in the way of other matters.
He’s also been talking about repairing the Affordable Care Act (i.e., Obamacare) rather than doing away with it altogether.
Repair won’t be easy. He’ll be wrestling with insurance companies, as well as physicians who oppose regulation and Americans who don’t like to pay for someone else’s care. However, the effort recognizes that the program, while far from ideal, has brought some degree of medical care to lots of people. Like Social Security from the 1930s onward for several decades, the program will continue to provoke die hard individualists, but it will resist efforts to reduce benefits that it provides to many voters.
One can wonder about the efforts of the tiny Green Party, led by an anti-Israel Jew, to count again some of the votes in key states, and the association of Clintonites to the effort. Also in the wind are hopes to convince some Republican electors to vote against Trump.
Should none of that change what’s scheduled for January 20th, the bizarre elements of the Trump persona seem likely to assure periodic proposals to impeach him for something or other.

Ethiopian Traditions ‘Nearly Identical’ to Dead Sea Scrolls From Second Temple Era
By Abra Forman December 11, 2016 , 11:30 am
“Ye shall walk in all the way which Hashem your God hath commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess.” Deuteronomy 5:29 (The Israel Bible™)

Many of the religious rituals and customs of the Ethiopian Jewish population are almost identical to the type of Judaism practiced in the period of the Second Temple, researcher and professor Dr. Yossi Ziv recently revealed.
While the differences between Ethiopian Judaism and the Judaism practiced by religious Jews today have led some to disparage the Ethiopian connection to the Jewish people, Dr. Ziv said that many Ethiopian customs align perfectly with descriptions of Jewish life and laws found in the Dead Sea Scrolls, which date from the Second Temple.
“They have been curating ancient customs that have disappeared from the world,” he said, speaking at a seminar at the Kfar Etzion Field School before the Ethiopian holiday of Sigd last month. “They provide examples of how the leaders of the nation of Israel would have behaved during the time of the Second Temple.”
Totally isolated from mainstream Judaism and the evolution of Jewish teachings through the Oral Law (Talmud), Ethiopian practice remained true to its purely Biblical roots, the professor explained. His findings persuaded him that Ethiopian Jews are in fact an offshoot of the Biblical Israelites.

Israel Signs Trilateral Research and Development Pact With Greece, Cyprus
By JNS December 11, 2016 , 7:30 am
“Now Chiram the king of Tyre had furnished Shlomo with cedar-trees and cypress-trees, and with gold, according to all his desire—that then king Shlomo gave Chiram twenty cities in the land of Galilee.” I Kings 9:11 (The Israel Bible™)
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades and Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras in Jerusalem Thursday, with the three nations signing a trilateral research and development agreement to advance joint ventures and projects.
It was the three leaders’ second meeting, which Netanyahu said “reflects the close and tightening relations between the countries. Relations between our three countries are strategically important for strengthening stability and establishing a regular framework for countries with common interests.”

On Friday, Auspicious
9-Minute Prayer Window Opens for First and Last Time in 28 Years
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz December 9, 2016 , 9:00 am
“Hashem is nigh unto all them that call upon Him, to all that call upon Him in truth.” Psalms 145:18 (The Israel Bible™)

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/shofar-siddur-tallit.jpg

On Friday, a group of 30 prominent rabbis are gathering for a special prayer session at a specific hour that a 700-year-old book of Kabbalah describes as auspicious for having prayers answered.

This Friday, December 9, is the ninth day of Kislev, the ninth month of the Hebrew calendar. At precisely nine hours after sunrise, the rabbis will gather in a special prayer event for nine minutes, from 1:44 PM until 1:53 PM Jerusalem time (6:44 AM – 6:53 EST), to raise money for charity.

Halachic (Torah law) hours are calculated by figuring the amount of time between sunrise and sunset and dividing by 12. At this time of year in America, a Halachic hour ranges from 40 minutes in northern states to 55 minutes in southern states. To pray in the ninth hour after sunrise tomorrow, multiply the halachic hour by nine and add the to the local time of sunrise.

The rabbis have understood this to be an auspicious time for prayer according to a 14th century kabbalistic book. In Sefer Brit Menucha, Rabbi Abraham ben Isaac of Granada wrote that the number nine was an important element for prayers to be answered. In Judaism, this is referred to as Eyt Ratzon (a time of will), when God is especially open to supplicants. The rabbi specified the ninth year of the Jubilee cycle, the ninth month, the ninth day, and the ninth hour after sunrise.

According to the rabbi, it was in the ninth hour that the Children of Israel were answered on the shores of the Red Sea.

And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians were marching after them; and they were sore afraid; and the children of Israel cried out unto Hashem. Exodus 14:10

Rabbi Abraham also noted that it was in the ninth hour that Elijah’s prayers were answered on the Carmel and God sent fire down from heaven.

And it came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening offering, that Eliyahu the Navi came near, and said: ‘O Hashem, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Yisrael, let it be known this day that Thou art God in Yisrael, and that I am Thy servant, and that I have done all these things at Thy word. I Kings 18:36

Though Rabbi Abraham specified each manifestation of nine as auspicious in its own right, the 30 rabbis have taken this one step further and announced that a combination of nines is even more auspicious for prayer. This Friday is the ninth day of the ninth month of the Hebrew calendar. Though it is not the ninth year of the Jubilee cycle, it is the ninth year of the Birkhat HaChama cycle.

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

Birkhat HaChama (blessing of the sun) is said once every 28 years, thanking God for creating the sun. According to Jewish tradition, the sun has a 28-year solar cycle. At the end of this cycle it returns to the position it was in when the world was created. The last time that it was recited was nine years ago, on April 8, 2009 (14 Nisan 5769).

The announcement of the prayer event has caused some consternation. The advertisement for the charity declares with some urgency that the “ancient and auspicious” window of opportunity comes around once every 28 years. Rationalist Judaism, a blog commenting on the religious Jewish world, noted that a similar announcement three years ago declared the opportunity was even more rare, occurring once every fifty years. Prayer campaigns were also run in 2011 and 2009, when this special Eyt Ratzon was reported to occur once every seven years.

Rabbi Aharon Yehuda Leib Shteinman, one of the most prominent Ultra-Orthodox rabbis today, admitted he was unfamiliar with this particular Eyt Ratzon, but approved of the event. “Charity alone is also a segula (benevolent ritual),” he said.

Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky, another prominent rabbi, did not support the event, saying, “I have not heard of this. One who wishes for salvation via praying, it is possible to always pray, whenever one wishes.”

Other rabbis object to the entire concept of Eyt Ratzon. Rabbi Shlomo Aviner, head of the Ateret Kohanim Yeshiva in Jerusalem, delivered a lecture in his yeshiva (seminary) in which he condemned the “Four Nines” as an attempt to use magic and shortcuts in place of genuine spiritual growth.

UN Voting Against Jewish Businesses in Judea and Samaria
Tidal Wave of UN Resolutions Against Israel
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz December 9, 2016 , 12:41 pm
“Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and to the writers that write iniquity.” (Isaiah 10:1)

The United Nations will vote next week to allocate funds, implementing a resolution for a “blacklist” of companies operating directly or indirectly in Judea, Samaria, the Golan, and East Jerusalem. This motion, passed in March with no opposing votes, only targets businesses owned by Jewish Israelis.

Israel’s UN Ambassador, Danny Danon reacted strongly to the impending vote.

“We will not be silent in the face of this shameful step,” Danon said, “The UN’s will to blacklist Jewish businesses and businesses connected with Israel and to boycott them, is reminiscent of dark periods in history,” he added.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/444-BIN-Subscribe-JudeaSamaria-600WIDE.jpg

“It is known that the Human Rights Council has become an anti-Semitic and anti-Israeli body, but it can not be that the UN is continuing to assist in this surreal process.”

Danon’s claim against the UN comes after six anti-Israel resolutions were passed last Wednesday. The resolutions included a call to “intensification of efforts…towards the conclusion of a final peace settlement“. Another resolution referred to Israeli actions, “as the occupying power, to impose its laws, jurisdiction and administration on the Holy City of Jerusalem“, calling these actions “illegal”. Yet another resolution called for Israel to withdraw from the “Syrian Golan” and return “the occupied territory to the line of 4 June 1967”.

The UN also criticized a vote on Wednesday in the Knesset. In a hotly contested vote, the Knesset passed a bill on Wednesday by a vote of 58-51 the Regulation Bill which will legalize 4,000 Jewish homes that have already been built in Judah and Samaria. The bill needs two more votes before it becomes law.

“I strongly urge lawmakers to reconsider their support for this bill, which if enacted, would have far-reaching consequences and would seriously damage the reputation of Israel around the world,” said UN high commissioner for human rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein. “Israel as the occupying power, must respect the private property of Palestinians, regardless of whether or not compensation is provided,” he said in a statement.

Fulfilling Ezekiel’s Prophecy, Jacob’s Biblical Sheep Arrive in the Promised Land
A Historic Biblical Return of Patriarch Jacob’s Flocks to Israel
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz December 7, 2016 , 11:30 am
“As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are separated so will I seek out My sheep; and I will deliver them out of all places whither they have been scattered in the day of clouds and thick darkness.” Ezekiel 34:12 (The Israel Bible™)

The 2,000-year saga of the return of Jacob’s sheep to the Holy Land as prophesied by Ezekiel was officially launched with the first of 11 flights that took place last week. The timing of this tremendous occurrence is deeply Biblically significant and may in fact shed light on the fascinating history of the patriarch’s herd.
On November 30, 119 sheep landed in Israel, coincidentally the same day rains at last began to fall in Israel, ending a difficult drought. This was precisely as Ezekiel had prophesied.
I will deliver them out of all places whither they have been scattered in the day of clouds and thick darkness. Ezekiel 34:12
This remarkable story began when Gil and Jenna Lewinsky, a couple that met in Israel and moved to Canada, first set eyes on the unique sheep three years ago. Despite never having farmed, something about the sheep spoke to their souls. They bought a herd of 70 and began a not-for-profit farm. In their hearts, they knew the sheep were destined for greater things than producing wool and milk. Though the breed has its genetic roots in the Holy Land, there are no Jacob’s Sheep in the Middle East today. The Lewinskys changed all that when they decided to bring Jacob’s flock home.
It took three years of wrestling with the bureaucracy of importing livestock, before the actual journey could begin. Since Canada is not listed as a country permitted to export livestock to Israel, the petition was initially rejected in 2015.

Unconfirmed Reports That Israel Attacked Syrian Airport Overnight

Hezbollah affiliated Al Mayadeen on Wednesday morning reported an overnight bombardment by Israeli planes of the Mezzeh military airport south-west of the old center of Damascus, Syria. The bombardment was apparently carried out from Lebanese airspace.
According to Syrian media, “in the capital, Damascus, residents woke at about four o’clock in the morning to loud explosions and high pillars of fire and smoke inside the military Mezzeh airport near the capital, the result of what appeared to be the targeting by a missile of the Zionist military. The site experienced strong and intermittent explosions over half an hour, while fire trucks and ambulances were rushing to the scene.”

In a practical realization of a Biblical prophecy, Christians are taking a leading role in bringing far-flung Jews back to Israel through the tireless efforts of Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein and his organization, the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (IFCJ).
After only two years of direct involvement in aliyah, IFCJ has ramped up its efforts. This year, The Fellowship is on track to bring over 4,500 Jews to Israel from 24 countries. This accounts for about 18 percent of the 24,000 Jews moving to Israel in 2016.

Hezbollah Threat to Israel Dubbed “ISIS Lite”
ISIS Isn't Israel's Only Threat at the Syria Border
By JNS December 7, 2016 , 1:30 pm
“The wicked is thrust down in his misfortune; but the righteous, even when he is brought to death, hath hope.” Proverbs 14:32 (The Israel Bible™)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/ISIS-anbar-province-iraq.jpg
ISIS in Iraq
The recent attention-grabbing exchange of fire between Israel and Islamic State is just one aspect of the Jewish state’s assessment of the current threats at its northern border with Syria.
Israeli forces killed four fighters from the Islamic State-affiliated Yarmouk Martyrs Brigade Nov. 27 after the terrorists had fired at Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers in the Golan Heights border region. The exchange drew significant attention because it was the first report of an Islamic State attack on Israel from Syria.
Islamic State has previously threatened Israel, but until now the terror group did not appear to open such a front at the Israel-Syria border. Yet despite the numerous news headlines that followed the Islamic State attack, the Yarmouk Martyrs Brigade does not have nearly as large of a footprint in the region as Hezbollah or its patron, Iran, which have been increasing their presence in Syria to back President Bashar al-Assad’s regime in that country’s civil war.

The beautiful Biblical places of Israel. (Breaking Israel News/Israel365)
One of the most incredible things about the land of Israel is that you can’t go far without meeting an ancient place which was mentioned or described in the Bible. From ancient times until today, the mountains, valleys and lakes where Biblical matriarchs and patriarchs walked, lived and communicated with God have endured in the Land, creating a country so rich in history and meaning that it is impossible to see its beauties without acknowledging the creator of all. In an effort to share the land’s Biblical and divine beauty with her supporters, Israel365 put together a calendar which showcases one breathtaking Biblical site for each month of the year. Take a look and bear witness to the evidence of God on earth.

An overwhelming majority of Israelis – 83 percent – believe President-elect Donald Trump will be a pro-Israel leader, found a recent poll released by the Ruderman Family Foundation on Monday, despite the fact that most do not expect him to fulfill his campaign promise of moving the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Only three percent of the 500 people surveyed said that they expected Trump to make the highly political move, which President Barack Obama recently vetoed for the last time during his presidency.
Long-standing American policy dictates that sitting presidents “delay” the Jerusalem Embassy Act, which would see the embassy moved to the capital, at six-month intervals. Obama approved his last veto on Thursday; the next time it comes due, Trump will be president. Whether Trump will break with tradition or not remains to be seen.
Of those polled, 43 percent believe there is also “no chance” that Trump will dismantle the Iran nuclear deal as he had previously vowed to do.

IDF Soldiers Desperately in Need of Prayer Shawls, Tefillin in Field
“Speak unto B’nei Yisrael, and bid them that they make them throughout their generations fringes in the corners of their garments, and that they put with the fringe of each corner a thread of blue.”
(Numbers 15:38)
By providing religious IDF soldiers with specially-designed army versions of necessary ritual objects like prayer shawls and tefillin (phylacteries), one special organization is easing the entrance of ultra-Orthodox Jews, also known as Haredim, into the Israeli army.
“The army advanced the conscription of Haredim before properly preparing for their special religious needs,” shared Yosef Bar-David, founder of The Israeli Soldiers’ Fund (ISF), an organization focused on aiding religious IDF soldiers to succeed both in their army service as well as maintain their Biblically-commanded lifestyle, with Breaking Israel News. “ISF works with the army by providing religious articles to soldiers who need them.”

Netanyahu: Gov’t ‘Working Overtime’ to Find Solution for Amona
“And I will bring you in unto the land, concerning which I lifted up My hand to give it to Avraham, to Yitzchak, and to Yaakov; and I will give it you for a heritage: I am Hashem.” (Exodus 6:8)
Prime Minister Netanyahu said on Sunday that government ministers are “working overtime” to prevent a clash with the residents of Amona, but added a demand for coalition members to commit to honoring whatever compromise is ultimately worked out.
“We are working overtime to find a responsible solution to the issue of Amona and for similar cases in the future. We are working to reach a rational solution and I expect all of you, ministers and MKs, to respect it. We must act responsibly and prudently here for a common goal: To defend the settlements, and to defend the court. We are working in both spheres,” Netanyahu said.
Over the weekend, the prime minister instructed the defense ministry to begin preparations for moving Amona to a temporary location on an adjacent hilltop, and again to a permanent location, probably next summer. In exchange for the replacement locations, Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit has proposed that the residents vacate the site on their own.

Twitter Grants Verification to Muslim Brotherhood
“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 social media platform Twitter recently granted verification to the official mouthpiece of the Muslim Brotherhood, an Egypt-based Islamist organization that has been designated as a terrorist organization in its home country since December 2013.
The Muslim Brotherhood operates through a website known as Ikhwan Web, which serves as the Brotherhood’s “official” English-speaking feed. Many are critiquing Twitter’s decision to grant Ikhwan Web verification, saying it legitimizes the group’s anti-Semitic propaganda.
“Verifying the Muslim Brotherhood’s Twitter feed helps further their narrative of civilization-Jihad,” U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), told the Washington Free Beacon

Obama’s Zero Hour Israel Burn at UN Foretold in Stunning Jerusalem Prophecy
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz December 6, 2016 , 9:30 am
“Behold I will make Yerushalayim a cup of staggering unto all the peoples round about and upon Yehudah also shall it fall to be in the siege against Yerushalayim.” Zechariah 12:2 (The Israel Bible™)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/obama-fire.jpg
(Breaking Israel News)
The prophet Ezekiel prophesied that in the end of days, Jerusalem would be an international point of contention, and as President Barack Obama mulls a possibly devastating blow to Israel during his last weeks in the White House, that prophecy seems closer to fruition than ever.
An international anti-Jerusalem scenario which sees President Obama using his final days in office to damage Israel via the UN, perhaps by allowing a resolution creating a Palestinian state to pass the Security Council without a US veto, is familiar to those who have read the prophet Zechariah.
And it shall come to pass in that day that I will make Yerushalayim a stone of burden for all the peoples; all that burden themselves with it shall be sore wounded; and all the nations of the earth shall be gathered together against it. Zechariah 12:3
The connection was made by David Mark, chief editor of Israel Rising and political activist for Jewish indigenous rights in Israel, in a political commentary on his website Sunday.
“There is a clear trajectory to create a situation where just by an American abstention, a de-facto Palestinian State will be created,” he warned.

For the Trump-Kushner Clan, Supporting Israel Is a Family Business

Jared Kushner’s family foundation has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to various Jewish and Israeli causes in recent years, and some of that money has funded projects in Judea and Samaria, Haaretz reported Monday. This puts the Kushner clan in good company with its in-laws, the Trumps, who have also given funds to support Jewish residents in the Biblical heartland.
Jared Kushner, President-elect Donald Trump’s Orthodox Jewish son-in-law and advisor, sits on the board of the Charles and Seryl Kushner Foundation, named for his parents. Among the millions of dollars the family donates annually, money is directed to yeshivas (religious seminaries) and organizations located past Israel’s Green Line.
Much of the donations go towards teaching Torah to religious Jewish youth. In 2013, the foundation gave $20,000 to American Friends of Beit El Yeshiva, which supports a program for religious youth in a community in Judea.
It gave several donations, amounting to about $15,000, to the Etzion Foundation, which supports three educational programs located in the Gush Etzion settlement bloc south of Jerusalem – Yeshivat Har Etzion, Kibbutz Migdal Oz and the Herzog College teachers’ training institution.

The State of New York has created a blacklist of a foreign companies supporting the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement against Israel, The NY Post reported Friday.
Back in June, Governor Andrew Cuomo told reporters–just before going out to lead the annual Celebrate Israel Parade: “Today, I’m going to sign an Executive Order that says very clearly, we are against the BDS movement, and it’s very simple. If you boycott against Israel, New York will boycott you. If you divert revenues from Israel, New York will divert revenues from you. If you sanction Israel, New York will sanction you, period. Thank you.
“We are against the BDS movement in every way,” the governor reiterated. “We are against companies that do it. We are against the promotion of it by companies and by entities. I am very proud to be the first governor in the United States of America to sign this Executive Order, and I encourage every governor in this country to sign such an Executive Order.”

Keeping Enemy at Gates, Israel Turns Away BDS Activist for First Time

For the first time, Israel refused to allow an activist for the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement into the country on the grounds that she is working against the interests of the state. The move sets a precedent which could see thousands of anti-Israel activists turned away at the airport.
Isabel Phiri, from Malawi, has had a long affiliation with the BDS movement, which seeks to undermine Israel through “nonviolent” economic attacks. She landed at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport on Monday but, after consultations between Interior Minister Aryeh Dery and Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan, she was denied a tourist visa.
The incident came several months after Deri and Erdan announced an initiative to keep BDS supporters out of Israel, and deport any activists already in the country.

A 13.5 ft tall gold statue of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that was placed at Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square early Tuesday morning will be removed, according to News 0404. The Israeli artist who put it there told Channel 2 News that his purpose was “to test the limits of freedom of expression in Israel in 2016.”
“Is the time ripe yet for placing a gold statue of the leader in the city square?” asked the artist, who wishes to remain anonymous, just in case it isn’t, probably. “Some will be repulsed by it, but many will actually be filled with a sense of strength and great pride.”

The anonymous artist, for whom this is his first political work, said he worked on his statue for about three months. The work is made of wood and polymers and painted gold. “Time will tell whether this was a provocation or prophecy,” he added.

Netanyahu asserted that Israel will do all in its power to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear power.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, addressing the annual Saban Forum via video link, said he plans to discuss the “bad nuclear deal” with incoming President Donald Trump.

The deal not only prevents Iran from getting nukes, but actually helps the Islamic Republic to reach its goal, Netanyahu stressed.

The Israeli leader praised Trump for having a clear vision about America’s role on the global stage.

This year’s event – titled “Challenges for the Trump Administration in the Middle East – took place in Washington, D.C., at the Brooking Institution headquarters.

Listen to what else he said about Iran and what he plans to discuss with Trump.

Pro-Israel Group Praises Trump’s Secretary of Defense Pick Gen. James Mattis
By JNS December 4, 2016 , 9:30 am
“These of the sons of Gad were captains of the host; he that was least was equal to a hundred, and the greatest to a thousand.” I Chronicles 12:15 (The Israel Bible™)

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/mattis.jpg

President-elect Donald Trump announced Thursday evening that he would nominate retired Marine General James Mattis as his next secretary of defense.

“We are going to appoint ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis as our secretary of defense,” Trump said at a rally in Cincinnati.

Mattis, 66, is a retired four-star Marine general who served as U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) commander from 2010-2013. His nickname stems from his widely praised leadership among his fellow Marines during the Battle of Fallujah in Iraq in 2004.

Last month, when it was rumored that Mattis would be Trump’s choice for defense secretary, the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) urged the president-elect against the appointment over controversial statements Mattis has made about Israel.

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

At a 2013 Aspen Institute conference, Mattis said he “paid a military-security price every day as a commander of CENTCOM, because the Americans are seen as biased in support of Israel, and that moderates all the moderate Arabs who want to be with us, because they can’t come out publicly in support of people who don’t show respect for the Arab Palestinians.” Mattis also described Israel’s control over Judea and Samaria as “unsustainable” and warned that Jewish settlements would turn Israel into an “apartheid” state.

The ZOA said Mattis’s past comments “revealed a lack of appreciation for and understanding of the extraordinary value to American security resulting from a strong American-Israeli alliance and a secure Israel.” As such, ZOA President Morton Klein opposed Mattis’s rumored appointment.
But the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA) dismissed the concerns over Mattis, calling them “ill-founded and unfair.”

“On the larger U.S. military and strategic issues related to the Middle East…General Mattis has notably and indisputably distinguished himself in advocating for a more robust U.S. military posture to counter, contain and deter Iran, even at the peril of his military career,” JINSA said in a statement, adding that “General Mattis’ outlook on these issues aligns perfectly with Israel’s, which considers an aggressive Iran its greatest strategic threat, and a nuclear Iran to be an existential threat.”

Nevada Introduces Anti-BDS Legislation
By JNS December 4, 2016 , 11:30 am

“If Hashem delight in us, then He will bring us into this land, and give it unto us a land which floweth with milk and honey.” Numbers 14:8 (The Israel Bible™)
Nevada Lieutenant Governor Mark Hutchison and pro-Israel activists introduced a new resolution seeking to counter the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

The proposed Senate Bill 26 will seek to counter the discriminatory environment fostered by the BDS movement, according to the Israeli-American Coalition for Action (IAC for Action), which is promoting the measure. Nevada’s anti-BDS resolution will be similar to others passed by more than a dozen U.S. states in recent years.

“We have a unique opportunity in the coming legislative session to send a powerful message that the hateful and discriminatory environment fostered by BDS has no place in Nevada,” said IAC for Action Chairman Shawn Evenhaim. “The IAC for Action is grateful to Lieutenant Governor Mark Hutchison and the state legislators of Nevada for their courageous leadership on this issue.”

Neville Pokroy, chairperson of the IAC for Action Government Relations Committee in Las Vegas, added that the Israeli-American community is ready to unite with other Nevada residents to “make a big difference in the fight against hate and discrimination.”

Castro’s Greatest Victory
By Caroline Glick
The Palestinians are loudly mourning the passing of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. PLO chief and Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas ordered flags in the PA to be flown at halfmast on Sunday to honor Castro.
Read more at https://www.jpost.com/Opinion/Our-world-Castros-greatest-victory-473922#LA5SS79FPbsEILyF.99
The Cuban Communist dictator, who murdered tens of thousands of his own people, imprisoned tens of thousands more, caused a million Cubans to flee their homeland and transformed an island paradise into a water-enclosed prison, was a key ally of Palestinian terrorists in their war to destroy Israel.
Castro’s support for the PLO and its longtime terrorist master Yasser Arafat spanned five decades. Castro’s secret police, the DGI, trained Palestinian terrorists both in Cuba and in the Middle East.

According to the CIA, several hundred Palestinian terrorists were trained in Cuba in the 1970s. Cuban trainers also worked with the PLO in Algiers and Damascus and later in training terrorists from around the world at PLO training camps in Lebanon in the 1970s and early 1980s.

Military training in terrorist tactics wasn’t the only way that Castro helped Arafat. He also provided the PLO with diplomatic cover and political guidance. Palestinian terrorists, including Arafat, began routinely visiting Cuba in the early 1960s. Castro welcomed the formation of the PLO in 1964. His military and intelligence officers met with Arafat and other senior Palestinian terrorists in Algiers and Damascus as early as 1965.

The Houris: Islam’s ‘Sexual Superwomen’
By Raymond Ibrahim
Last month, when the battle for Mosul began, Islamic State “caliph” Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi reportedly promised four extra Houris (supernatural, celestial women designed for sexual purposes)—atop the other 72 virgins—to all jihadis who die fighting the infidel forces according to Arabic media accounts.
Al-Baghdadi did this during an extra “fiery sermon” wherein he recounted 15 hadiths and three stories dealing with the Houris in the context of the original Muslim conquest of Mosul, circa. 637, at the hands of Muhammad’s companions (the sahahba). After promising his followers that “blood will run like rivers in the [forthcoming] battle,” al-Baghdadi declared: “All, without exception, will enter paradise as martyrs. Moreover, you will enter paradise with four more Houris than other martyrs. For just as you stand by me now, so will they stand by you, or under you, or above you, so that you might forget what will happen to you by way of violence, death, and degradation in this war.”
While it is easy to dismiss this report as a hoax (among other things, it doesn’t explain why al-Baghdadi thinks they will get four more heavenly concubines), the problem is that Islam—from its history and doctrines, to the exhortation of its leaders, from Muhammad to al-Baghdadi—is full of stories and enticements concerning the Houris.
Here, for instance, is an authentic hadith—a statement attributed to Muhammad that mainstream Islam acknowledges as true—which all jihadi organizations (including ISIS) regularly invoke:

Religious Jews Cheer Trump’s Education Pick as Champion of Religious Schools
By Valerie Locke November 30, 2016 , 11:30 am
“How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! yea, to get understanding is rather to be chosen than silver.” Proverbs 16:16 (The Israel Bible™)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/trump-devos.png
From left, Betsy DeVos, Donald Trump, Mike Pence. (Video screenshot)
Several influential American Orthodox Jewish organizations have welcomed President-elect Donald Trump’s appointment of Betsy DeVos as education secretary in his administration, seeing it as a harbinger of major reform which will ease the high costs of private Jewish schooling.

Agudath Israel of America (AIA), an Orthodox leadership and policy organization, quickly praised DeVos, citing its personal experience with the billionaire activist for education reform.

“Agudath Israel has worked closely with Mrs. DeVos for many years, together with other organizations and legislators from both sides of the aisle, to give parents educational options for their children,” read the AIA’s statement, published in The Yeshiva World.

“Thanks to that effort, hundreds of thousands of children across the United States are receiving a quality education they couldn’t otherwise afford, including many students who choose to attend Jewish day schools.”

AIA’s national director of state relations, Rabbi A.D. Motzen, noted DeVos’s “passionate support for school choice”, or the supporting of private education with public, government funds.

Currently, American education policy cuts religious schools off from public funding due to the Constitutional separation of church and state. The exorbitant cost of private Jewish education, which most religious Jews consider a basic necessity for instilling Jewish values in a secular world, puts serious financial pressure on Jewish families. Day school tuition can cost up to $12,000 a year, while high school tuition is often double that number.

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

DeVos, as the leader of the pro-charter school American Federation for Children, supports an education model incorporating school choice which would see billions in federal money earmarked towards chartering independent schools and funding private school vouchers for less affluent students – including religious schools.

“Under her leadership, we will reform the U.S. education system and break the bureaucracy that is holding our children back so that we can deliver world-class education and school choice to all families,” Trump said in his announcement of DeVos’s nomination on November 23.

Nathan Diament, executive director of the policy branch of the Orthodox Union, the largest Orthodox Jewish organization in the U.S., also hailed the announcement with satisfaction. Diament said the appointment signaled that Trump would keep a campaign promise which had made him “attractive” to Orthodox voters.

School choice, Diament told the Algemeiner, is the “number one kitchen-table domestic policy issue for the Orthodox community.”

Trump’s proposal of a $20 billion earmark for private education “has the potential to greatly assist the Jewish community with its affordability challenge,” he said.

Such a move would put more control in the parents’ hands, he argued. “The regulators of the schools should be the parents, the parents who care for their children.”

Senate Renews Iran Sanctions Law,Leaving Door Open For Trump
“Through Thee do we push down our adversaries; through Thy name do we tread them under that rise up against us.” (Psalms 44:6)
The US Senate voted on Thursday to extend the Iran Sanctions Act (ISA) for ten years, leaving the option open for President elect Donald Trump to reinstate sanctions against Iran if it violates the deal concerning its nuclear program.

Though the Iran deal pushed through by President Barack Obama last year was highly divisive, the extension passed overwhelmingly yesterday. Two weeks ago, it passed the House by a vote 419-1, and yesterday it passed the congress unanimously, 99-0. The bill must now be signed by the president.

“We’ll let you know what the president decides to do with it,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said at a press conference on Thursday.

Originally written in 1996 during the presidency of Bill Clinton, the ISA imposed economic sanctions on firms doing business with Iran. Originally, the bill included sanctions against Libya.

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

With the act set to expire at the end of December, Senator Bob Menendez (Dem) explained the need for the extension.

“If the sanctions architecture has expired, then we have no sanctions which we can snap back,” he explained to the press..

Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker told Reuters that the renewal is intended to keep all options open for the incoming administration regarding the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) nuclear deal with Iran.

“Extending the Iran Sanctions Act … ensures President-elect Trump and his administration have the tools necessary to push back against the regime’s hostile actions,” Corker said in a statement.

The incoming Republican president spoke out strongly against the Iran deal during his campaign, calling it a “disaster” and vowing to “dismantle” it. His recent candidates for security positions all seem to be like-minded, putting the future of Obama’s pet-project in jeopardy.

Iran reacted in anger, claiming the extension was a violation of the JCPOA signed in July 2015. Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei told members of the volunteer Basij forces in Tehran, “So far, the current US government has committed several violations with regard to the nuclear agreement,” adding, “The most recent of them is the 10-year extension of the sanctions. If these sanctions are extended, it will surely constitute a violation of the JCPOA and they (the US) should know that the Islamic Republic will definitely react to it.

Obama Vetoes Jerusalem Embassy
for Last Time
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz December 2, 2016 , 9:54 am
“Yerushalayim, that art builded as a city that is compact together… For there were set thrones for judgment, the thrones of the house of David.Pray for the peace of Yerushalayim; may they prosper that love thee.” Psalms 122:3-6 (The Israel Bible™)

Citing security concerns, US President Barack Obama vetoed for final time the law to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

In a memorandum to the Secretary of State John Kerry, Obama wrote:

Pursuant to the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, including section 7(a) of the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 (Public Law 104-45) (the “Act”), I hereby determine that it is necessary, in order to protect the national security interests of the United States, to suspend for a period of 6 months the limitations set forth in sections 3(b) and 7(b) of the Act.

You are authorized and directed to transmit this determination to the Congress, accompanied by a report in accordance withsection 7(a) of the Act, and to publish the determination in the Federal Register. This suspension shall take effect after transmission of this determination and report to the Congress.

This annual presidential custom dates back to 1995, when Congress passed the Jerusalem Embassy Act, for the purposes of initiating and funding the relocation of the Embassy of the United States in Israel to Jerusalem, no later than May 31, 1999. The act also called for Jerusalem to remain an undivided city and for it to be recognized as the capital of the State of Israel. The law allowed the president to veto for security considerations. Every six months since the law passed, every US president has done so, preventing the move from taking place.

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

During his campaign, president elect Donald Trump promised he would move the embassy to Jerusalem. He generated enthusiasm for his campaign last year when he made that promise at a conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), a pro-Israel lobbying group.

Nevertheless, shortly after the election,Walid Phares, a senior policy aide to Trump, seemed to backpedal on this pledge in a BBC interview when he stated the Trump administration would only move the embassy to Jerusalem “under consensus.” He did not define whose consensus he meant, or on what terms.

“Many presidents of the United States have committed to do that, and he said as well that he will do that, but he will do it under consensus,” Phares said.

Using this promise to attract pro-Israel voters and then reneging is an effective campaign poly used by both parties. Both Bill Clinton and George W. Bush vowed to move the embassy in Israel and then vetoed the law when it crossed their desks.

Jerusalem has been the capital of Israel since 1950 and officially annexed the eastern half of the city after unifying it in the 1967 Six Day War.

Israel’s UN Envoy Slams General Assembly Head for Wearing Palestinian Flag Scarf
Dec 1, 2016
The UN again blatantly displayed that it is biased against Israel and in favor of the Palestinians.

Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations (UN) Danny Danon slammed UN General Assembly President Peter Thomson for wearing a Palestinian flag scarf.

Thomson wore the scarf on Tuesday at a meeting of the UN’s Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People (CEIRPP) that marked International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. The special session, initiated by the Palestinian UN delegation, came on the anniversary of the UN Partition Plan of November 29, 1947, which led to the creation of the State of Israel.

“It’s unacceptable for the president of the UN General Assembly, whose position is a symbol of neutrality and stateliness, to wrap himself in a Palestinian flag and participate in an event the sole purpose of which is to attack and besmirch the state of Israel,” Danon said. “This is living, unequivocal proof of the bias against Israel and the slander spread about us at the UN.”

In his address to the UN General Assembly, Danon questioned whether the Palestinians really want statehood and argued that the Palestinians have rejected every Israeli offer for peace.

“Do the Palestinians even want a state? History tells us that the answer is no. If the Palestinians really wanted peace, we could have had peace decades ago. The Palestinians reject every Israeli offer and every plan and respond with waves of violence and terror,” he said.

During his speech, Danon held up the front page of The New York Times from Nov. 30, 1947, the day after the Partition Plan vote, with headlines that read “Assembly Votes Palestine Partition” and “Arabs Walk Out…Disavow Any Partition Role.”

Danon added that the Palestinian Authority (PA) “pays lip-service to these [peace] initiatives because it pays well. The real goal of the PA is to continue to exist as a corrupt entity living off the goodwill of the international community without the responsibilities of governing. And they know the only way to do so is to continue the conflict.”

The General Assembly also adopted six resolutions critical of Israel Tuesday. The resolutions included measures ignoring Jewish ties to holy sites in Jerusalem, allocating resources to help promote the Palestinian narrative, and calling on Israel to withdraw from the “occupied territories.”

Obama Now “Highly Unlikely” to Push UN Israel Peace Deal
Trump Win Prompts Obama to Give Up on UN-Led Israel Solution
By Abra Forman December 1, 2016 , 1:30 pm
“There are many devices in a man’s heart; but the counsel of Hashem, that shall stand.” Proverbs 19:21 (The Israel Bible™)

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/obama-bibi.jpg

President Barack Obama has “nearly ruled out” any lame-duck efforts to push a negotiation framework on Israel through the United Nations (UN), and US officials say this is largely due to Donald Trump’s unexpected victory.

As early as last March, Obama was known to be considering a last-ditch bid for Middle East peace through the UN. Before the presidential election, Obama had ordered up an “options menu” for proceeding with an effort to restart peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians through the UN during his last months in office.

However, pursuing the type of peace plan Obama favored was only possible under the assumption that Democrat Hillary Clinton would succeed him, the Associated Press reported.

Clinton, who campaigned on a strongly pro-Israel platform, might have softened Obama’s terms, but would likely have been willing to work within the UN framework established by Obama.

Trump’s election changed the equation. The Republican President-elect made clear during his campaign that he does not see Israel’s settlements as an obstacle to peace and believes Jerusalem should be recognized as Israel’s capital – positions in complete opposition to those of the Obama administration.

Following his win, Trump’s transition team quickly warned Obama that pushing agendas “contrary to the president-elect’s position” would be seen as an antagonistic move likely to strain the process of passing power to Trump.

“On big, transformative issues where President Obama and President-elect Trump are not in alignment, I don’t think it’s in keeping with the spirit of the transition” to continue advancing policies “that clearly don’t match Trump’s positions,” a Trump advisor told Politico.

While Trump has said he is eager to make “the ultimate deal” between Israel and the Palestinians, he is not interested in “coercing” either party, Trump’s Israel advisor, Jason Greenblatt, said earlier in the month, assuring Israel, “He doesn’t intend to force a solution.”

Obama’s backing down comes as a relief to Israeli leaders, who had been bracing for a “November surprise” from the lame-duck president in the form of a UN resolution which could upset the balance of power in favor of the Palestinians, and to pro-Israel American lawmakers, a group of whom urged Obama in September not to abandon Israel at the UN.

With less than two months left in office, Obama is now “highly unlikely” to approve any UN measures which would endanger Israel’s position, US officials have said.

Report: IAF Strikes Hezbollah Convoy,Syrian Armory
By JNI Media November 30, 2016 , 1:30 pm
“But they that wait for Hashem shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall walk, and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31 (The Israel Bible™)

According to London-based Arab newspaper Rai al Youm, Israel attacked overnight Wednesday a weapons storage facility outside Damascus belonging to the Syrian army and a military convoy.

IAF planes attacked an armory of the Syrian army’s fourth division, and a convoy near the highway connecting Damascus and Beirut, Lebanon. The convoy was reportedly preparing to haul a large weapons load for Hezbollah. The attack consisted of two separate sorties.

According to Lebanese website el Nashra, the attack took place at 1:20 Wednesday morning, as four loud explosions were heard from the outskirts of Damascus. The armory, located near the highway, sustained major damages.

So far there has been no report of the Syrian army firing at the two IAF attacks. In September, President Assad’s army shot at Israeli planes flying over Quneitra, in southern Syria, near the Israeli Golan Heights border.

Turkish President Erdogan Calls on All Muslims to Protect Jerusalem
Nov 29, 2016
Is Turkey’s president calling for a Muslim holy war against Israel?

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is urging “all Muslims” to defend Jerusalem from Israel and stand for the Palestinian cause, striking a tough stance and criticizing Israel despite recently improved ties between the two countries.

Erdogan, the president of majority Muslim Turkey, said Tuesday “it is the common duty of all Muslims to embrace the Palestinian cause and protect Jerusalem” and that safeguarding the Al-Aqsa Mosque should not be left to children armed with nothing but stones.

This appears to be a clear call to the Muslim world to take up arms against Israel.

Speaking at the first annual conference on Jerusalem in Istanbul, the Turkish leader also criticized an Israeli proposal to make mosques reduce the volume of loudspeakers issuing the call to prayer, calling the proposed bill “irrational” and “conscienceless.”

His comments come as Israel and Turkey prepare to exchange ambassadors as part of a reconciliation deal.

DNA Tests Could Fulfill God’s Promise to Abraham by Revealing Millions of Jews. But How Jewish is Jewish Enough?
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz November 29, 2016 , 10:30 am
“I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the seashore.” Genesis 22:17 (The Israel Bible™)

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/shutterstock_272178170-1.jpg
Recent advances in DNA testing are the final stage in bringing about a special vision of Messiah, one that will fulfill God’s promise to Abraham while uniting all three major Abrahamic religions, believes a prominent rabbi and former member of Knesset.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/amsalem-150x150.png
Rabbi Chaim Amsalem (Wikipedia)
“This is the special function of the final generation before the Messiah, which we are clearly in right now: to bring close all the descendants of Jews that were lost to the Jewish people,” Rabbi Chaim Amsalem, a prominent Sephardi rabbi, recognized authority on halacha (Torah law), and former Knesset member for Shas, told Breaking Israel News.

“We need to bring close those who have their roots in Israel, those souls who stood at Mount Sinai with us, but their souls were lost to us because of the exiles and the catastrophes and tragedies that befell us throughout history.”

Making God One

DNA testing graphically illustrates how mankind is one large interconnected family. Rabbi Amsalem understands this universal reality to have repercussions for the Jewish role in bringing the Redemption.

“Christians believe in Hashem (God), each branch in its own way. Even the Muslims believe in Hashem in their own way. It is the Jews’ purpose to bring about Messiah by uniting the world in the service of Hashem,” Rabbi Amsalem said, quoting a verse in Zechariah.

And Hashem shall be King over all the earth; in that day shall Hashem be One and His name one. Zechariah 14:9

“Not to convert them,” the rabbi noted. “But anyone who discovers that they are descended from Jews, we are required to help them. The non-Jews will remain as they are, but we have to reconnect to those souls that were lost.”

Rabbi Amsalem based this on chapter 34 in Ezekiel.

The weak have ye not strengthened neither have ye healed that which was sick neither have ye bound up that which was broken neither have ye brought back that which was driven away neither have ye sought that which was lost; but with force have ye ruled over them and with rigour. Ezekiel 34:4

The Science

The task set out by Rabbi Amsalem, inconceivable just a few short years ago, is at hand. A simple DNA test is performed at home with a cheek swab, which is then mailed to a laboratory. For less than $200, anyone can learn their ancestry going back six generations – including if they have any Jewish genes.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/bennett.jpg
Bennett Greenspan (Family Tree DNA)
Bennett Greenspan, president and CEO of Family Tree DNA, a leading genetic testing company, has watched this phenomenon grow for 15 years. His company performs hundreds of thousands of these tests each year. Greenspan explained to Breaking Israel News how the test determines Jewish ancestry.

“We compare the subject’s DNA with those of verified DNA databases that have been established for specific ethnic groups, “Greenspan explained. “These databases are based on hundreds of thousands of samples and the level of certainty is extremely high. We can tell you what percentage of your ancestors were from different ethnic groups.

“We have a database of DNA for people who are verifiably Ashkenazi Jewish, or verifiably Sephardic Jewish,” Greenspan told Breaking Israel News.

With DNA testing becoming so accessible, the number of people discovering their Jewish roots is growing exponentially. Some tests show that almost 20 percent of people originating from the Iberian Peninsula (Spain and Portugal) have a high rate of Jewish ancestry. About one in ten Hispanics from North and South America tested by Family Tree DNA showed Semitic ancestry, strongly suggesting a Jewish background.

Jewish roots are showing up in the most unexpected places. Professor Tudor Parfitt, a British historian who specializes in the study of Jewish communities around the world, found the Kohen modal haplotype, frequently called the Cohen gene, in nine percent of the Lemba tribe in Africa.

Greenspan noted that DNA testing in Europe is revealing the Jewish roots of children hidden during World War II who were previously unaware of their true identities.

Greenspan, as a Jew, understands this as an imperative for the Jewish people in this generation.

“I have seen so many tears in the faces of those who were ripped away from the body of Judaism by hatred, fear, distortion and outright lies,” said Greenspan. “Bringing any of those people, these lost souls, back to Judaism is a mitzvah (Torah commandment) and should be considered an obligation of our generation.”

Rabbi Amsalem noted the urgency of connecting to people with Jewish ancestry. “We will never be at peace in our land until we perform this function, of bringing everyone together to serve Hashem, each in their own right,” Rabbi Amsalem said.

Finding Abraham’s Seed: The Biblical Promise

As the co-author of the book, “Do you have Jewish roots?”, and the founder of Shavei Israel, Michael Freund is intensely interested in genetic testing. He has been searching the far corners of the globe for almost 20 years, trying to find people with roots in Israel in order to help them reconnect to the Jewish People.

“Genetics has the potential to make the question of Jewish identity both more complicated and more interesting, “ Freund told Breaking Israel News. “It can open up new chapters in the destiny of the Jewish people as more people discover the secret of their past buried in their chromosomes. This is definitely an issue we are going to hear a lot more about in the near future.”

DNA testing has become one of the tools Freund uses in his search for communities around the world with ancestral connections to the Jewish people, but he recognizes its limits.

“DNA testing can be one factor that we consider as part of the big picture, but it is only one piece of the puzzle,” Freund explained. “We look at a broad range of factors, such as history, background, folklore and customs. Jewish identity is much more complex than the results you get in a petri dish.”

Freund predicted that advances in DNA technology “herald a global movement of return,” noting that this new wave of people discovering their Jewish ancestry may have a Biblical basis.

I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the seashore. Genesis 22:17

“There are an estimated 14-15 million Jews in a world population of seven billion. That makes us a very miniscule drop in a very large bucket. So what happened to those promises made to the Biblical Patriarchs?” asked Freund. “Perhaps the answer is that there are a lot more of us out there than we realize and maybe DNA technology will encourage many non-Jews with Jewish ancestry to reconnect with their Jewish roots, and encourage other Jews to return to the fold.”

Status Versus Identity

Greenspan is careful to add a disclaimer about the significance of the results of genetic tests.

“We are not saying that the DNA proves Jewish status,” he said. “It doesn’t work that way. We can scientifically prove that a person has Jewish ancestors but that does not give them Jewish status. That has its own specific set of rules, and isn’t a result of scientific proof.”

According to Jewish law, Jewish status is matrilineal, transferred from the mother to her children. The child of a Jewish father and a non-Jewish mother is not considered as having the status of a Jew.

Jewish status can also be the result of conversion. Therefore, the lack of Jewish ancestors does not mean a person is not Jewish, since a female ancestor could have converted to Judaism. Similarly, Jewish ancestry does not prove Jewish status, since a female ancestor may have converted to another religion.

Thus, a person can have the halachic status of being a Jew while not having the corresponding genetic identity. Or he can have Jewish ancestors, even on his mother’s side, and still not fulfill the halachic requirements of being a member of the tribe.

This does not detract from the significance of DNA testing, noted Greenspan.

“It is certainly an important factor for identity,” he contended. “For the past 15 years, I have seen how it affects people when they discover Jewish roots they were previously unaware of. Their connection was buried due to our tortured history. People take a DNA test, find out they have Jewish ancestry, and become intellectually interested. Usually they become supporters of Judaism and Israel.”

Freund cautioned that the issue is complex. “Identity is important and it is very personal,” he said. “But it does not obligate society or the community to accept that identity or confer recognition or status. There are many people who, based on the result of a DNA test, mistakenly assumed that they were Jews, and mistakenly assumed on that basis they would be able to make aliyah (immigrate to Israel).”

According to Freund, Jewish identity is found in the soul as much as it is in the chromosomes.

“I think the Jewish spark can never be extinguished. It might be buried or hidden, but at some point it is going to burst forth,” Freund said. “I’ve heard from countless people who related that they always felt an inexplicable attraction or connection to the Jewish people, and after DNA testing showed a genetic connection, it answered that question for them.”
