Offerings for Third Temple Are Growing Today in Israel’s Forests
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz February 6, 2017 , 1:30 pm
“I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the acacia-tree, and the myrtle, and the oil-tree; I will set in the desert the cypress, the plane-tree, and the larch together.” Isaiah 41:19 (The Israel Bible™)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/shutterstock_511852345-1.jpg

The nascent Sanhedrin is setting out to reinstate the Biblical Temple forest as part of their ongoing effort to bring the Third Temple into existence and has already begun planting around Israel to provide the agricultural needs of the Third Temple.

Rabbi Hillel Weiss, spokesman for the Sanhedrin, explained that the Temple was central to Israel as an agricultural nation strongly connected to its land. The Temple provided a link between the land, and the Divine.

“When people think about sacrifices, they think about animals and blood,” Rabbi Weiss said. “But most of the sacrifices were, in fact, from plants, grown around Israel.”

Many of the elements for the daily Temple service were agricultural and specific to the Temple. Semolina was frequently brought as a sacrifice with olive oil. The wine libation came from vines cultivated using a specific method. Rabbi Weiss pointed out that even some minor aspects of the Temple service required vast agricultural resources.

“The Mishna (Talmud) states that the Passover Lamb was roasted on a stick from a pomegranate tree,” noted Rabbi Weiss. “When the Temple is built, we will need millions of these sticks. Last week we planted 30 pomegranate trees, and this is clearly a very small step towards what we will need after the Temple is built.”

Ever-present on the altar were three piles of wood: the first for burning the animal sacrifices, the second for making coals to burn the incense, and the third for the perpetual altar fire commanded by the Bible.

And the fire upon the altar shall be burning in it; it shall not be put out: and the Kohen shall burn wood on it every morning. Leviticus 6:5

The wood used in these arrangements were considered sacrifices. In the Second Temple period, the wood was provided as an annual offering.

And we cast lots, the Kohanim, the Leviim, and the people, for the wood-offering, to bring it into the house of our God. Nehemiah 10:35

There are many different plants required for the Temple, each with its own special conditions. The Sanhedrin’s new Temple forests are dispersed around Israel to provide the specific conditions suitable for each plant. In the Hebron Hills, they planted 30 Cedars of Lebanon and several pomegranate trees. In Kochav Hashachar overlooking the Jordan Valley, they planted half an acre of grapevines surrounded by Cedars. In Shaarei Tikvah in Samaria, cinnamon trees, one of the 11 ingredients in the Temple incense, are ready to be planted. In Itamar, a vineyard of 200 vines has been dedicated to Temple use. Seven date palms were planted in the Western Negev for use in the Shavuot offering.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/457-PlantTree-DesertBloom-600WIDE.jpg

The Sanhedrin is also making efforts to plant in the site of the recently destroyed community of Amona as an expression of connection to the land.

“In Biblical times, planting trees was one of the ways ownership of the land was expressed, but for now, it will be an act of healing,” said Rabbi Weiss, quoting Ecclesiastes.

A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted. Ecclesiastes 3:2

The idea of the Temple forest appears in the Bible, when Abraham planted a forest in Be’er Sheva.

And Avraham planted a tamarisk-tree in Be’er Sheva, and called there on the name of Hashem, the Everlasting God. Genesis 21:33

Later, when Jacob returned to Be’er Sheva, homiletical teachings on Genesis collected in the fifth century describe him visiting the forest his grandfather planted in order to take seedlings down to Egypt.

And Israel took his journey with all that he had, and came to Be’er Sheva, and offered sacrifices unto the God of his father Yitzchak. Genesis 46:1

These seedlings grew into trees and plants that were used by the Nation of Israel when they built the tabernacle.

The arboreal needs of the Temple are mentioned again in the Book of Nehemiah, when a wood offering is brought to the Second Temple.

And we cast lots, the Kohanim, the Leviim, and the people, for the wood-offering, to bring it into the house of our God, Nehemiah 10:35

“The Temple, as a House of Prayer for all Nations, was meant as a tikkun (fixing) for the entire world,” said Rabbi Weiss. “Reinstating the plants in Israel dedicated to maintaining the Temple paves the way to fix the plants and ecology in other places, as well.”

Top Iranian Official: We Can Bomb Tel Aviv in 7 Minutes
A senior Iranian official threatened to target Israel immediately if the US attacks the Islamic Republic.
A senior member of the Iranian parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission and a former Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) official warned that Tehran has prepared its forces for war and attained “great achievements” in its ballistic missile development program. If attacked by the US, Iran will immediately retaliate by firing a missile at Tel Aviv, he asserted.
“And only seven minutes is needed for the Iranian missile to hit Tel Aviv,” Mojtaba Zonour, a former adviser to the Iranian Supreme Leader’s Representative at the IRGC, said on Saturday evening, according to Iran’s Fars News.
In 2015, Zonour stated that “the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran has Divine permission to destroy Israel.”
“The Noble Koran permits the Islamic Republic of Iran to destroy Israel,” he said, adding that “even if Iran gives up its nuclear program, it will not weaken this country’s determination to destroy Israel.”
Iranian officials and military commanders have repeatedly vowed to obliterate the Jewish state.
Threats to Raze US Military Base
Zonour further threatened that the “slightest aggression” by the US will lead to Iran “razing to the ground” the American military base in nearby Bahrain.
“The US army’s fifth fleet has occupied a part of Bahrain, and the enemy’s farthest military base is in the Indian Ocean, but these points are all within the range of Iran’s missile systems and they will be razed to the ground if the enemy makes a mistake,” he stated ominously.
His remarks came after President Donald Trump slapped new sanctions on Iran and after US National Security Adviser Michael Flynn officially “put Iran on notice” following the Islamic Republic’s most recent illicit missile test.
On Saturday, Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, commander of the IRGC Aerospace Force, warned Washington to “avoid hostile action or wait for a harsh response.”
“If the enemy makes a mistake, our roaring missiles will hit their targets,” Hajizadeh told reporters on the sidelines of massive military drills dubbed Modafe’an Harim-e Aseman Velayat (Defenders of the Velayat Skies) in Semnan province in northern Iran.
“Knowing the capabilities of our Armed Forces, I am to ensure you that foreign threats cannot do us any harm,” he boasted.
He blamed Washington for needlessly attacking Iran over its missile tests as “a pretext to show their animosity towards us; we are making round-the-clock efforts to defend our country’s security and if the enemy dares to make any mistake our roaring missiles will land on them.”

USS Cole Deployed Off Coast of Yemen After Suicide Attack on Saudi Vessel [VIDEO]
Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz February 5, 2017 , 2:16 am
“[A Psalm] of David. Blessed be Hashem my Rock, who traineth my hands for war, and my fingers for battle;” Psalms 144:1 (The Israel Bible™)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/USS_Cole_DDG-67_turn.jpg
USS Cole (US Navy Photot)
The guided missile destroyer, USS Cole, was deployed to patrol the Gulf of Aden in response to a Houthi rebel suicide attack on a Saudi Arabian war vessel in the Red Sea.
On Monday, a Houthi rebel boat loaded with explosives rammed into a Saudi Al Madinah-class frigate in the Red Sea, killing two and wounding three. Two defense officials told Fox News after the incident that the attack was intended for an American vessel. The Shiite Houthis, backed by Iran, have been fighting a Saudi backed coalition for two years in Yemen.

Christians in Banned Muslim States Fear Trump Order
By JNI Media February 5, 2017 , 9:30 am

“Ye shall not therefore oppress one another; but thou shalt fear thy God: For I am Hashem your God.” Leviticus 25:17 (The Israel Bible™)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/arabchristiansFINAL.jpeg.jpg
Christian Arabs in Israel
Middle East Christians
No one is more afraid of the consequences of President Trump’s executive order banning travelers from seven majority-Muslim states than the very people the president seeks to protect: the Christians of those countries, according to a Wall Street Journal report.

Trump told the Christian Broadcasting Network last week that he was trying to help Middle East Christians, saying, “They’ve been treated horribly, we are going to help them.” Indeed, the Christian travelers from those seven countries visiting the US will receive preferential treatment, but the rest, estimated at about 13 million, back in their home countries, will probably pay for Trump’s congeniality. This is because, no matter how strongly the White House denies that the executive order is a ban on Muslims, over in those home countries no one is buying it.

“Nobody is seeing this as motivated only by security and everybody views this as targeting largely Muslim immigration,” Basem Shabb, the only Protestant member of Lebanon’s parliament, told the WSJ. “Trump’s offer of help is like a poisoned chalice. It has come at the expense of alienating the region’s Christians from their Muslim neighbors.”

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

The WSJ quotes Yonadam Kanna, a Christian MP who leads the minorities bloc in the Iraqi parliament, who has no doubt Trump’s executive order will backfire on Iraqi Christians. “This will lead to new discrimination. It will reflect very negatively on minorities,” Kanna said.

He also stressed that while Middle East Christians “appreciate the feeling of support for vulnerable communities,” what they would like President Trump to do “is to help us to stay, not to emigrate.”

Earlier this week, according to Aletia, the head of Iraq’s largest Christian denomination, the Chaldean Catholic Church, Patriarch Louis Raphael I, commented on the Trump ban saying that any preferential treatment will likely encourage “propaganda and prejudice that attack native Christian communities of the Middle East as ‘foreign bodies,’” or worse, as being “supported and defended by Western powers.”

“These discriminating choices,” Raphael I said, “create and feed tensions with our Muslim fellow citizens. Those who seek help do not need to be divided according to religious labels. And we do not want privileges.”

Trump Slaps New Sanctions on Iran After Ballistic Missile Test
“And I will visit upon the world their evil, and upon the wicked their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the tyrants.” (Isaiah 13:11)
President Donald Trump’s administration issued sanctions targeting 25 individuals and entities associated with Iran’s ballistic missile program Friday, in response to the recent missile test conducted by the Islamic Republic.
According to the U.S. Treasury Department, the sanctions target “multiple entities and individuals involved in procuring technology and/or materials to support Iran’s ballistic missile program, as well as for acting for or on behalf of, or providing support to, Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Qods Force.”
The sanctions come just days after Trump put Iran “on notice” about its ballistic missile tests and support for terrorism.
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/171-LIBI%20iran%20iaf.jpg
Iran launched the Khorramshahr medium-range ballistic missile Jan. 29 at a well-known test site out of the city of Semnan, about 140 miles east of Tehran. U.N. Resolution 2231, which was put in place after the nuclear deal between world powers and Iran was signed in July 2015, forbids the Islamic Republic from conducting ballistic missile tests for eight years.

Trump Tweets Lash Out at Judge Who Stopped Ban
“He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the righteous, even they both are an abomination to Hashem.” (Proverbs 17:15)
On Friday, a federal Judge in Seattle put a nation-wide restraining order on President Donald Trump’s executive order banning entry to visitors from seven Islamic-majority countries considered to be security risks. President Trump responded with a flurry of posts on social media, criticizing the judge’s move.
Judge James Robart, a United States federal judge in the United States District Court for the Western District of Washington, granted a temporary restraining order against President Trump’s immigration executive order signed one week ago, pending review of a suit brought by Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson. Though many cases for individuals have been brought as a result of the travel ban, Robart’s ruling brought for the state of Washington and Minnesota, was the first challenge to the constitutionality of Trump’s executive order. The states’ case was based on claims they had suffered financial harm from the travel ban by having students and faculty at state-funded universities stranded overseas. Robart challenged the order’s use of the 9-11 attacks as a justification for the ban, as no terror attacks had been perpetrated by individuals from the seven banned countries since those attacks 15 years ago. In his ruling, Robart said, the order had to be “based in fact, as opposed to fiction.”

Anti-Semitic Incidents in UK Shot Up 36 Percent in 2016: Report
“Consider how many are mine enemies, and the cruel hatred wherewith they hate me.” (Psalms 25:19)
The number of anti-Semitic incidents in the United Kingdom increased by 36 percent in 2016, according to a report by Community Security Trust (CST), an organization dedicated to the protection and defense of British Jews.
In its 2016 Anti-Semitic Incidents Report, the group said there were 1,309 incidents compared to 960 incidents in 2015.
“While Jewish life in this country remains overwhelmingly positive, this heightened level of anti-Semitism is deeply worrying and it appears to be getting worse. Worst of all is that, for various reasons, some people clearly feel more confident to express their anti-Semitism publicly than they did in the past,” CST Director David Delew said Thursday.
The report points to a number of factors driving the increase in anti-Semitism, including Israel’s Operation Protective Edge against Hamas in the Gaza Strip in 2014; terrorist attacks on Jewish communities in Europe; anti-Semitism among U.K. Labour Party members; the perception of increasing racism and xenophobia following the U.K.’s decision to exit the European Union; and regular discussions about the problem of anti-Semitism in British society.
CST said that while those issues led to an increase in anti-Semitic incidents, they also made it more likely that such incidents would be reported to police.

Israel's UN Envoy Defends White House Statement on Settlements
By JNS February 5, 2017 , 8:30 am
“And let these my words, wherewith I have made supplication before Hashem, be nigh unto Hashem our God day and night, that He maintain the cause of His servant, and the cause of His people Yisrael, as every day shall require.” (I Kings 8:59)
Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon downplayed Thursday’s White House critique of the construction of new Israeli settlements, saying that President Donald Trump will determine his policy regarding settlements during his meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu later this month.

“I wouldn’t call it a U-turn, the statement is very clear,” Danon told Israel Radio Friday, referring to the common interpretation that the White House’s statement Thursday broke from the Trump administration’s previous softer stance on settlements. “The meaning is: wait until the meeting with Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu, who arrives in Washington in less than two weeks for a meeting with President [Donald] Trump and then set policy.”

Nevertheless, Danon also noted that Israel is a sovereign state and would determine its own policies.

“We will not be in full agreement with the United States on everything over the next four years, but there is communication and messages are being passed,” Danon said.

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

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer had said Thursday, “While we don’t believe the existence of settlements is an impediment to peace, the construction of new settlements or the expansion of existing settlements beyond their current borders may not be helpful in achieving that goal.” The White House also said President Trump plans to discuss the topic of settlements with Netanyahu during their Feb. 15 meeting.

Meanwhile, Danon congratulated former ExxonMobile CEO Rex Tillerson on his confirmation as secretary of state during Thursday’s National Prayer Breakfast in Washington.

In a discussion with Tillerson, Danon briefed him on Israel’s activities at the U.N. and “expressed his appreciation for [U.S.] Ambassador Nikki Haley’s commitment to stand strong against anti-Israel resolutions.”

Jewper Bowl: This Year’s Big Game Has Deep Jewish, Israel Connection
By Abra Forman February 5, 2017 , 11:30 am
“For Hashem your God is He that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.” Deuteronomy 20:4 (The Israel Bible™)

The millions of Americans gearing up to watch the 51st annual Super Bowl on Sunday might be surprised to learn that this year’s game has a deep Jewish connection which extends to Israel: the owners of both teams competing in this year’s game are Jewish, and both have ties to the Jewish state.
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/benjamin-netanyahu-robert-kraft-june-2015.jpg
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Patriot’s owner Robert Kraft (Amos Ben Gershom/GPO)
Robert Kraft, billionaire owner of the New England Patriots since 1994, and Arthur Blank, who bought the Atlanta Falcons in 2002, were both raised in Jewish families. They have each donated millions of dollars of their personal wealth to Jewish and Israeli causes over the years, exemplifying the intrinsic Jewish value of tzedaka, or charity.

Kraft grew up outside Boston in an observant family, with a father active in the local synagogue. He did not join sports teams in his youth because he attended Hebrew school in the afternoon and refused to play on Saturdays, the Jewish Sabbath, though he would go on to play football at Columbia University.

After making billions in paper products and real estate, Kraft has given away over $100 million to Jewish and Israeli causes, including health care and education. Kraft’s name is well-known in Jerusalem, where he donated $6 million towards the building of a huge football arena called Kraft Family Stadium.

He has also donated to promote Jewish-Christian relations, endowing chairs in Jewish studies at Boston College and Holy Cross College, and a chair in Christian Studies at Brandeis University. His late wife, Myra, was active in supporting programs for Ethiopian immigrants to Israel.

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

The two led multiple trips to Israel, even during the height of the Second Intifada; Myra regularly took Patriots players on the tours, including star quarterback Tom Brady in 2006 – who, though not Jewish, keeps a menorah in his Brookline home.

In 2016, Kraft was awarded an honorary doctorate from Yeshiva University.

Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank (Flickr/BSteve76)
Arthur Blank grew up in New York and made his fortune by co-founding the Home Depot chain with Jewish partner Bernie Marcus, who has said that the company’s practice of donating to communities affected by natural disasters throughout America is directly motivated by the value of tzedakah.

Blank personally has pledged to donate at least half of his personal wealth to charity. He has given $7 million to the National Jewish Health Center in Denver, $250,000 to the Jewish community of Scottsdale, and $150,000 to the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta, where his team is based.

He has also donated $75,000 to the Jewish Agency for Israel, which is the body primarily responsible for promoting and facilitating Jewish immigration to the Holy Land.

Kraft is hoping for his fifth championship as owner, while it would be Blank’s first. Whichever team wins, it will be a victory for Jewish football fans the world over.

Over 70 Evangelical Leaders Meet With, Applaud Trump's Israel Envoy Friedman
By JNS February 2, 2017 , 9:30 am
“Fear thou not, for I am with thee, be not dismayed, for I am thy God; I strengthen thee, yea, I help thee; yea, I uphold thee with My victorious right hand.” Isaiah 41:10 (The Israel Bible™)

Nominated Israel ambassador David Friedman with Donald Trump. (Video Screenshot)
Following a high-profile meeting with David Friedman, President Donald Trump’s choice for U.S. ambassador to Israel, a group of more than 70 evangelical Christian leaders has issued a joint letter to the president expressing their enthusiastic support for Friedman’s candidacy.

In the letter, the group expressed confidence that Trump “wisely selected a fellow man of faith, character and principle to represent our country’s interests in Israel.” Friedman, a bankruptcy lawyer, advised Trump on Israel-related issues during his 2016 presidential campaign.

The pro-Israel leaders who convened at the meeting represented millions of Christians around the world, including more than 100 million Hispanic evangelicals in more than 40,000 U.S.-based churches and an additional 500,000 congregations globally.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/411-Jerusalem-1260WIDE.jpg

Regarding Friedman’s candidacy, Joseph Sabag, U.S. national director for the Israel Allies Foundation, stated, “While Mr. Friedman is someone we have known and trusted, our meeting today only strengthened our support…Mr. Friedman and President Trump represent a vast upgrade in our nation’s support for Israel, and that’s something all Americans should applaud and especially evangelical Christians.”

In addition to supporting Friedman as the U.S. ambassador to Israel, the evangelical leaders’ letter expressed unanimous support for relocating the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Islamic Machete Attack at Louvre in Paris
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz February 3, 2017 , 1:04 pm
“Hashem trieth the righteous; but the wicked and him that loveth violence His soul hateth.” Psalms 11:5 (The Israel Bible™)
(Photo: Benh Lieu Song/ Wiki Commons)
A man armed with a machete shouted ‘Allahu Akhbar‘ (God is great in Arabic) before attacking a soldier posted outside the Louvre Museum in Paris on Friday morning. The soldier was lightly injured in the head but succeeded in shooting the attacker multiple times in the stomach, seriously injuring him.
The assailant was wearing a backpack at the time of the attack, raising concerns that it contained explosives. Police sappers later determined the pack did not contain explosives.
In a statement, French Prime Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said that the attack was “terrorist in nature.”
“We are dealing with an attack from an individual who was clearly aggressive and represented a direct threat, and whose comments lead us to believe that he wished to carry out a terrorist incident,” said Michel Cadot, the head of the French capital’s police force, in a statement.

“I will gather all nations and will bring them down into the valley of Yehoshaphat; and I will enter into judgment with them there for My people and for My heritage Yisrael whom they have scattered among the nations and divided My land.” Joel 4:2 (The Israel Bible™)

Stopping just short of echoing anti-Israel rhetoric heard from the previous administration just a few weeks ago, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said at a press conference on Thursday that expanding Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria “may not be helpful in achieving” the new president’s plan for peace between the Israelis and the Palestinian Authority.
“As the president has expressed many times, he hopes to achieve peace throughout the Middle East region,” Spicer said in a statement. “The Trump administration has not taken an official position on settlement activity and looks forward to continuing discussions, including with Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu when he visits with President Trump later this month.”
President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu are scheduled to meet in the White House February 15.

Report: US Threatens ‘Severe Steps’ if Palestinians Sue Israel at International Court
Palestinian Authority
The possibility of a cessation of American aid in the event of a Palestinian appeal to the court does not represent new policy, but has been set in American law for two years.

The Trump administration has warned the Palestinians that suing Israel in international courts would trigger severe steps by the US, including the closure of PLO offices in Washington and an end to economic aid to the Palestinian Authority (PA).

Israel’s Ha’aretz on Wednesday quoted Western and Arab diplomatic sources as saying that the message from the Trump administration was transmitted through the American consulate — and not through the White House or State Department — and consisted of a telephone conversation with a leading Palestinian official directly linked to PA head Mahmoud Abbas.

According to the report, President Donald Trump signed an order during his first week in office to execute a congressional resolution, drawn up during Barack Obama’s term, to move against the PA and Fatah if the Palestinians sue Israel.

“Despite that resolution by Congress, the Palestinian leaders were counting on petitioning the court as a means of halting the settlements. But the messages arriving from Washington in recent days made clear that any such step by the Palestinians would lead to a severe American reaction, so much so that some talked about returning the PLO to the list of terrorist organizations,” said the Palestinian source.

The Palestinian leaders have been fuming over the message from Washington, Ha’aretz reported, saying the new administration was attempting to sabotage the entire Palestinian strategy of recent years, which involves international lawfare and diplomatic struggles against Israel at international bodies.

‘The American Threat is Significant’
Meanwhile, Palestinian sources in Ramallah conceded that no final decision to sue Israel in the international courts has been reached, because of the American threat.

The Palestinian leaders will be discussing the matter over the next few days, Ha’aretz has learned. “The American threat is significant,” the source said.

For several years the PA has been moving toward bringing Israel to the International Criminal Court (ICC) at the Hague for alleged war crimes and as a means of challenging the legality of the Jewish state.

The possibility of a cessation of American aid in the event of a Palestinian appeal to the court does not represent new policy, but has been set in American law for two years. At the end of 2015, a clause was added to foreign aid legislation, according to which the administration would bar the transfer of any funds to the PA if it initiates any investigation against Israel at the ICC or supports such an investigation.

According to US law, any Palestinian step at the World Court could lead to the closure of PLO offices in Washington. The Palestinians’ appeal to the court in 2014 and 2015 and their continued transfer of information to the prosecutors since then have delayed and frozen some US aid, but has not stopped it altogether.

Hamas Has Restored Pre-Protective Edge Tunnel, Rocket Capabilities
By Andrew Friedman February 1, 2017 , 7:30 am
“Strive, O Hashem, with them that strive with me; fight against them that fight against me.” Psalms 35:1 (The Israel Bible™)

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/hamas-fighters.jpg

Hamas has entirely rebuilt the military strength it had at the beginning of Operation Protective Edge in June, 2014, a senior defense official said Tuesday.

Hebrew-language Channel 2 reported that the terror group has rebuilt tunnels and replaced its stockpile of missiles with locally-made models. In addition, security officials are concerned that the recent reconciliation agreement between Hamas and the Egyptian government could ease the import of weapons and ammunition to the Gaza Strip via the Rafiah border crossing.

The report followed Palestinian claims that Muhammad a-Zouari, a Tunisian aviation engineer who was assassinated in Tunisia last month, had visited Gaza “several times” in recent years, evading Israel’s land and naval blockade and avoiding detection by Israeli authorities while in the Strip. Hamas blames Israel for the assassination.

Protective Edge was the third protracted military operation against Gaza since Benjamin Netanyahu took office in 2009, and the fourth since Israel withdrew from the Strip in 2006. Hamas fired more than 4,564 rockets and mortar shells at civilian targets in Israel during the conflict, killing six civilians including a four-year-old boy. Sixty-four IDF soldiers died in the ground campaign, and 32 Hamas tunnels were destroyed.

However, the conflict claimed a greater price on the Palestinian side: According to the Office of the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), 5,359 trucks carrying 959 tons of medicine and medical supplies entered the Strip through the Carni, Erez and Kerem Shalom crossings, and that entered through the Kerem Shalom crossing. But Gaza health officials said 2,200 Palestinians died during the war, including more than 1,000 civilians. More than 20,000 homes were destroyed.

Netanyahu Clan Performing Biblical Mitzvah of the Kings
At the inauguration of a Bible study conference on Tuesday, Sara Netanyahu, the wife of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, described her family’s powerful connection to Bible study, which, in fact, embodies a Torah commandment incumbent upon rulers of Israel.

“The Tanach is my favorite book,” Sara said in her opening address to the conference. “It’s in my family, I feel connected to it, it’s a part of me and it’s a part of our nation.”

The Caucus to Encourage the Study of Tanach (“Tanach” is a Hebrew acronym for Torah, Prophets, and Writings, referring to the Hebrew Bible) was founded by ​Likud ​MK Yehuda​​h Glick, who chose Sara, whose well-known family is steeped in Torah, as the guest of honor.

The First Lady of Israel is the ​daughter of ​Israeli poet and ​Bible ​educator Shmuel Ben-Artzi. She is also the sister of three Bible competition champions. Her younger son, Avner, won the prestigious National Bible Quiz six years ago. Two years ago, Prime Minister Netanyahu took a break from his duties to compete in the International Bible Quiz in Jerusalem.

Sara related that her husband sits and learns Bible with Avner on Shabbat, a practice she recommended to those gathered.

“When I see my children learning with their father, I fondly remember my father and know his legacy lives on – and is being passed from generation to generation,” Sara said. “I suggest to you to adopt this practice of studying Bible together, parents and children. This is our tradition and we have a great merit to learn it and to pass it on to future generations.

“I think this is a national mission for all our children to study the Bible,” Sara said. “This book is our story. The story of us all.”

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/214-IsraelBible-CompleteSet-600WIDE.jpg

The Netanyahu clan’s connection to the Bible is strongly reminiscent of the Biblical commandment for a king of Israel to write a personal Torah scroll. The Torah mandates that the bond between the ruler and the Bible be constant and unbreakable, similar to the manner embodied by the Netanyahu family.

And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life; that he may learn to fear Hashem his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them, that his heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that he turn not aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to the left; to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he and his children, in the midst of Israel. Deuteronomy 17:19-20

Rabbi Glick explained his reasons for establishing the caucus.

“The Bible is the cornerstone of our connection to this wonderful phenomenon of the return to Zion,” Rabbi Glick said. “I tell every tourist that comes to Israel: today, you can hold the Bible in your hands and see the words of the Bible that are coming true before our eyes – we have returned home. The Bible does not belong to any specific group. It belongs to the non-religious and the ultra-Orthodox, the left-wing and right-wing. It is the identity of us all.”

Donna Jollay, Israel365 consultant and pro-Israel Evangelical Christian activist, was on hand to witness the event.

“It was Incredible,” Jollay told Breaking Israel News. “It was hard for me to hold in tears at times at the magnitude of what was happening and what I was getting to participate in.”

Jollay discussed the motivations that created the conference and similar events in Israel.

“It was born out of a concern that the love and study of Tanach is falling to the wayside here even in Israel and a sincere request was put out to try to develop ways of inspiring and connecting the next generation with Tanach,” Jollay said.

Also in attendance were Knesset members and senior members of the Education Ministry. Revital Swid, a non-religious Zionist Union MK, surprised those in attendance when she emphasized the importance of the gathering in the Knesset by saying, “Our leaders don’t always know the path, and we only have God to light our way.”

https://unitedwithisrael.org/israel-demands-action-against-iran-over-illicit-missile-test/?utm_source=pushengage&utm_medium=push_notification&utm_campaign=pushengage
Israel Demands Action Against Iran Over Illicit Missile Test
“We cannot allow Iranian aggression to go unanswered,” said Netanyahu of Iran’s latest illegal missile test.

Israel’s leadership is demanding action against the Islamic Republic of Iran after its was revealed on Monday that it carried out another missile test over the weekend, in apparent breach of United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions on the matter.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on the international community to reimpose sanctions on Iran.

“Iran has again fired a ballistic missile in callous defiance of a UN resolution,” Netanyahu wrote on Facebook. “In my coming meeting in Washington with President Trump, I plan to raise the issue of renewing sanctions against Iran in relation to this and other things. We cannot allow Iranian aggression to go unanswered.”

Iran carried out a ballistic missile test near Semnan, some 140 miles east of the capital Tehran. A Khorramshahr medium-range ballistic missile was launched and eventually exploded after flying 600 miles. A defense official said the missile test ended with a “failed” re-entry into the earth’s atmosphere.

UN Security Council Resolution 2231, which endorsed the Iran nuclear agreement between Iran and the P5+1 powers, prohibits Iran from undertaking missile tests on projectiles designed to deliver nuclear warheads.

“Iran has once again defied Security Council resolutions and revealed its true intentions,” stated Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon “The international community must not bury its head in the sand in the face of this Iranian aggression. The Security Council members must act immediately in response to these Iranian actions which endanger not only Israel, but the entire Middle East.”

The UNSC has scheduled urgent consultations Tuesday on the ballistic missile test at the request of the US.

The US Mission to the UN said it wanted the UN’s most powerful body to discuss Sunday’s launch of a medium-range missile.

Senator Bob Corker (R-TN), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, condemned Iran for the missile test.

“No longer will Iran be given a pass for its repeated ballistic missile violations, continued support of terrorism, human rights abuses and other hostile activities that threaten international peace and security,” Corker said in a written statement.

Iran’s Repeated Breach of UN Resolutions
Iran has previously carried out several missile tests, in blatant breach of UNSC resolutions.

In March of last year, Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) launched several ballistic missiles during a military exercise, with the phrase “Israel must be wiped out” written on them.

Iran claims that its military development is for defense purposes only.

However, many of these weapons were given to the Hezbollah terror organization and used against Israel’s civilian population during the Second Lebanon War in the summer of 2006.

Iran has repeatedly threatened to use its missiles against Israel.

IDF Orders Amona Residents to Evacuatein 48 Hours
By JNI Media January 31, 2017 , 1:30 pm
“For they prophesy a lie unto you, to remove you far from your land; and that I should drive you out and ye should perish.” Jeremiah 27:10 (The Israel Bible™)
The IDF on Tuesday issued an order to the residents of Amona to clear their village in 48 hours. The order, copies of which were posted around the community, declares the area as “restricted,” and states that “within 48 hours from the issuing of this order, no person may enter or remain in the restricted boundary.”

The IDF order, signed on Monday, January 30, demands that the residents of Amona remove all their possessions from their homes by tomorrow, Wednesday. It also permits the residents to appeal the decree in writing to the commander of the IDF forces in Judea and Samaria within 48 hours from its publication.

The Supreme Court is expected to rule on Tuesday regarding a petition submitted by area Arabs via the Yesh Din NGO (annual budget estimated at $1,680,000, from donors such as the EU, the UK, Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law Secretariat from Sweden, Switzerland, Denmark and the Netherlands, Norwegian Refugee Council, Catholic Agency for Overseas Development, and Oxfam-Novib from the Netherlands). With help from those foreign agencies, the petition seeks to prevent the state from offering the people of Amona alternative housing nearby – as was promised to them a month ago.
The final date set by the court for the last Jewish foot to be set in Amona is February 8.

Enormous Jellyfish Appear on Coast Week After Shark Frenzy Confirms Ezekiel 38
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz January 31, 2017 , 12:30 pm
“Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Yisrael; so that the fishes of the sea and the fowls of the heaven and the beasts of the field and all creeping things that creep upon the ground and all the men that are upon the face of the earth shall shake at My presence.” Ezekiel 38:20 (The Israel Bible™)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/shutterstock_380895154-1.jpg
Illustrative: a bloom of mandala jellyfish. (Shutterstock)
A swarm of large venomous jellyfish have suddenly appeared off the shores of the Holy Land in an anomalous incident which comes one week after an equally perplexing gathering of sharks, bearing an unmistakably prophetic message to world leaders that is coincidentally being read now in synagogues around the world.

The reports of unusually large numbers of jellyfish, referred to as blooms, off the coasts of Northern Israel follow another inexplicable marine event: last week, a swarm of hundreds of sharks, called a frenzy, mysteriously appeared off the coast of Ashdod.

Breaking Israel News reported that the shark frenzy recalled a prophecy in Ezekiel referring to bizarre behavior of fish and other wildlife before the war of Gog and Magog. This week’s jellyfish phenomenon would seem to emphasize that the prophecy is indeed becoming a reality.

Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Yisrael; so that the fishes of the sea and the fowls of the heaven and the beasts of the field and all creeping things that creep upon the ground and all the men that are upon the face of the earth shall shake at My presence. Ezekiel 38:20

The jellyfish swarming the beaches of Tel Aviv and Haifa are unusually large, averaging two feet across, and can weigh up to 20 pounds. Their sting is venomous and painful. Though Israel is periodically visited by swarms of jellyfish, according to scientists, this bloom of jellyfish should not be happening right now.

Last summer, University of Haifa researchers completed a study of jellyfish off the coast of Israel, concluding that the blooms, usually occurring during the summer months, are drawn to the warmer waters, 83 degrees Fahrenheit and higher, and arrive in conjunction with a full moon.

The current temperature off the jellyfish-laden waters off the Israeli coast was reported today to be a brisk 62 degrees; the moon, far from being full, is a sliver in the sky. Both circumstances directly contradict the intensive scientific study and its conclusions.

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

The species, Rhopilema nomadica, are, as their name implies, nomadic. But jellyfish are not particularly strong swimmers. Their inexplicable appearance under adverse conditions smacks of an external influence pushing them along.

When told of the phenomenon, Rabbi Yosef Berger noted the similarity of the marine swarms to the plagues, which he explained were brought through nature in order to give a specific message to the greatest leader in the world: Pharaoh.

But Pharaoh will not hearken unto you, and I will lay My hand upon Egypt, and bring forth My hosts, My people the children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt, by great judgments. Exodus 7:4

“The Egyptians and Pharaoh were heretics,” Rabbi Berger explained to Breaking Israel News. “[They] believed that they could do whatever they wanted, ignoring God’s will, ruling over his creation. God sent the plagues to show that he oversees everything, every detail.”

As Israel has a special purpose as God’s representative in the world, the message of the plagues, given through nature, is still relevant today, when much of the world is working to erase the Biblical covenant granting the land to Israel, said Rabbi Berger.

“The purpose of Israel in the world today, just as it was in the Exodus from Egypt, is to show God’s kingship to the nations of the world,” he asserted.

“All these unusual phenomenon, from the lowest of the low, from the jellyfish and sharks, are just like the plagues. God is using Israel to send a message to the world and its leaders once again. He is still in the world, the master and king, guiding everything according to his will.”

He noted that amazingly, the jellyfish phenomenon concurred with the Bible reading which describes the Ten Plagues. The portion is read this week by Jews worldwide as part of the annual cycle of reading the Torah.

“Is it any surprise that while all the Jews are reading the Torah portions concerning the wonders that occurred in Egypt, that similar wonders are happening in the world right now?”

Netanyahu’s Shameless Opponents
By Caroline Glick
The local Israeli media spent the past week covering almost nothing but the criminal probes being carried out against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
Over the past week, Israel was subjected to the diplomatic equivalent of a lynch mob in Paris. It received unexpected assistance from Britain, which twice in two days departed from its traditional anti-Israel stance and blocked the Paris conference’s anti-Israel declaration from being adopted as the official position of the European Union.

Also over the past week, outgoing US President Barack Obama, outgoing Secretary of State John Kerry and outgoing UN Ambassador Samantha Power used their final appearances in office to blast Israel.

On the other hand, President-elect Donald Trump and his team played a key role in bringing about Britain’s change of heart toward Israel.

While these events have been widely covered by the foreign media, they have barely been mentioned in the Hebrew broadcast media, from which the majority of Israelis receive their news.

Instead, led by Channel 2 with its monopoly ratings share, the local media spent the past week covering almost nothing but the criminal probes being carried out against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Netanyahu is the subject of two probes. The first, which police investigators dubbed Affair 1000, involves allegations that Netanyahu improperly received gifts from his friends.

That probe seems to be withering on the vine. Consequently, over the past week, most of the media’s attention has been focused on what the police call Affair 2000.

Affair 2000 involves conversations Netanyahu conducted two years ago with Israel’s most powerful media mogul, and Netanyahu’s public nemesis, Yediot Aharonot chairman Arnon Mozes. Mozes is Netanyahu’s bitter foe because for the past 20 years, Yediot’s coverage of Netanyahu has been virulently hostile.
image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/BIN-OpEd-Experts-300x2501.png
BIN-OpEd-Experts-300x250(1)
Affair 2000 itself, the media coverage it has garnered and the way the police are conducting their probe all raise deeply troubling questions about key institutions that are supposed to safeguard Israeli democracy and our rule of law.

To understand the affair and the concerns it raises, Affair 2000 must be placed in its proper context.

In November 2014, the government fell and the Knesset voted to go to elections barely a year after the previous elections were held.

Whereas generally a government falls because the opposition gains the votes to bring it down in a no-confidence vote, in 2014, Netanyahu caused his own government to fall and precipitated early elections.

Netanyahu took the drastic step, which placed his own future in jeopardy, because the heads of three parties that were members of his governing coalition colluded against him in a host of common actions that made governing impossible.

The straw that broke Netanyahu’s back was when the three rebellious ministers – then-justice minister Tzipi Livni, then-Treasury minister Yair Lapid and then-foreign minister Avigdor Liberman – decided to support the passage of the draft “Israel Hayom law.”

The bill, which was sponsored by Labor MK Eitan Cabel, would have outlawed the free distribution of national newspapers. It was dubbed the Israel Hayom law, because the paper founded in 2007 and owned by Netanyahu’s supporter US casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, is a free paper.

The goal of the draft legislation was to shut down Israel Hayom. Thanks to Livni, Lapid and Liberman, the bill passed its first reading in the Knesset with a vote of 43 in favor and 23 opposed.

Netanyahu vociferously opposed the bill. He and his Likud party voted against it.

With that context in mind, we can return to Affair 2000.

Netanyahu’s conversations with Mozes took place around the 2015 elections. Fearing Mozes intended to extort him, on the advice of his personal attorney, Netanyahu surreptitiously recorded the discussions.

The police discovered his recordings in the course of a separate probe of Netanyahu’s former adviser who had a copy of the recorded conversations on his mobile phone.

Channel 2 has opened its primetime news broadcasts nearly every night this past week with selected minutes from their recorded talks.

Netanyahu’s conversations with Mozes related to the Israel Hayom draft law. From Channel 2’s excerpts, we learned that Mozes offered Netanyahu to improve Yediot’s treatment of the premier if Netanyahu would convince Adelson to substantially curtail Israel Hayom’s distribution and if Netanyahu would agree to limit government advertisements that run in the daily paper.

Mozes told Netanyahu that if the premier accepted his offer, he would see to it that Netanyahu remained in power for as long as he wished.

The flipside, although unstated – at least in Channel 2’s excerpts – was clear. If Netanyahu rejected Mozes’s offer, Yediot would continue its campaign to bring down Netanyahu.

The end of their discussions is public knowledge.

Netanyahu brought down his own government and disbanded the Knesset rather than allow the legislative process to continue. His 2015 campaign centered on Netanyahu’s opposition to Mozes and Yediot.

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

The opposition’s campaign against Netanyahu on the other hand, was based largely on negative articles related to Netanyahu and his family that ran daily in Yediot.

In other words, Netanyahu rejected Mozes’s offers and the two went to war.

Although Yediot supports the Left and Israel Hayom supports Netanyahu, Mozes’s opposition to Israel Hayom wasn’t ideological.

His willingness to skew his paper’s coverage in favor of Netanyahu showed that Mozes’s attempt to destroy Israel Hayom stemmed solely from financial considerations.

In 2006, Yediot had a monopoly share of the print media market on weekends and dominated the weekday editions as well. Its closest competitor, Maariv, had half the sales that Yediot had.

Israel Hayom ended Yediot’s monopoly and lowered its advertising revenues. So if Israel Hayom were to close, the most direct and significant beneficiary would be Yediot Aharonot. And everyone knew this.

As justice minister, Livni chaired the Ministerial Committee on Legislation that controls in large part which bills will be brought before the Knesset. Ahead of the committee’s discussion of the Israel Hayom bill, then-attorney general Yehuda Weinstein issued a legal opinion which reasonably argued that the bill was unconstitutional because its aim was to specifically target one business for bankruptcy, because it harmed consumers and the economy, and because it sought to undermine the free press.

During the 2015 campaign, Livni acknowledged that she spoke with Mozes about the bill before it was discussed in her committee. Mozes, she said, also furnished her with a legal opinion authored by his private attorneys. Predictably, that opinion argued the bill was constitutional, was not prejudicial and would be great for the economy.

Livni rejected Weinstein’s opinion and enabled the bill to go forward. Yediot supported her lavishly during the election campaign.

AFFAIR 2000 is troubling first and foremost because of what is not being investigated.

Netanyahu, who refused to make a deal with Mozes, is being investigated as a criminal suspect for speaking to him.

Livni, who also spoke to Mozes, as well as Liberman, Lapid and 40 other members of Knesset who may have spoken with him, and who voted in favor of the bill that Mozes worked so hard to pass into law, are not being investigated.

How is it possible that police investigators aren’t interested in finding out if Mozes made any offers that were accepted? Why aren’t investigators checking whether there were changes in the volume of positive coverage that Livni, Lapid, Liberman and their colleagues received after they announced their support for his bill? This brings us back to the media. Night after night, television viewers have been subjected to saturation coverage of Affair 2000 that distorts more than it reveals. Netanyahu is presented as a corrupt politician willing to destroy a newspaper to advance his own career even though he did nothing of the sort.

The 43 MKs who actually did something to destroy the paper are given a pass.

The distorted reports have clearly had an impact.

In a poll conducted by Channel 2 to check the effectiveness of its reporting, a majority of Israelis said that they believe Netanyahu behaved dishonestly in relation to his conversations with Mozes.

At least as far as Channel 2 is concerned, the way to correct the problems Affair 2000 exposed is obvious.

Just as Israel Hayom broke Yediot’s market monopoly so Channel 2’s broadcast monopoly must end.

The government must deregulate the broadcast media. It needs to sell broadcast licenses to anyone who has the funds to purchase one.

The problem with police investigators is unfortunately more difficult to contend with. According to independent investigative journalist Yoav Yitzhak, Netanyahu decided not to turn his recordings of Mozes over to the police despite the fact that they contained apparent evidence of extortion, or at a minimum the offer of a bribe, because he doesn’t trust police investigators.

Yitzhak reported on his website that Netanyahu told his close associates this week that he found out that the police’s senior investigators, Asst.-Chiefs Manny Yitzhaki and Ronny Ritman, had close relationships with hostile journalists from Channel 10, Haaretz and Yediot. He was concerned that if he brought them the evidence he had gathered against Mozes, the investigators would use the evidence as a means to open new criminal investigations against Netanyahu with the aim of destroying him politically.

The Prime Minister’s Office has not denied Yitzhak’s report. Assuming it accurately reflects Netanyahu’s thinking, it means that the prime minister believes the police are corrupt and politically motivated.

Certainly the police investigators’ selective investigation of Netanyahu since Affair 2000 broke seems to back up his feelings.

Police Commissioner Insp.-Gen. Roni Alsheich promised this week that the probes of Netanyahu will be concluded shortly. But even if Netanyahu is cleared of suspicion, the concerns raised by Affair 2000 will linger and grow if not dealt with.

Israel is on the precipice of a major shift in its international position. Trump’s rise, along with the weakening of the EU with Britain’s Brexit vote, means that Israel faces opportunities it hasn’t enjoyed in 50 years.

The concerted effort by the media with the apparent collusion of the police to undermine and overthrow Netanyahu at the dawn of this new era isn’t merely unjust. It is anti-Zionist, anti-democratic and dangerous for the future of the state.

President Trump Should Dump the Media
By Daniel Greenfield
Trust ratings and approval levels for the media are so far down in the toilet that it would take a plumber to find them
Last week the media lost its mind over reports that press briefings might be moved from the White House back to the Eisenhower Office Building next door where President Eisenhower held the first ever televised press conference.

Media outlets issued panicked reports of being “evicted,” “kicked out” or “exiled” from the cramped theater that used to be the White House’s indoor swimming pool. There was outrage at the thought that they might have to take an equally short walk to the White House Conference Center where they had already worked while the Bush White House spent millions in taxpayer money renovating the room.

“The press went crazy, so I said, ‘Let’s not move it.'” President Trump finally reassured them.

He got as much gratitude for it as President Nixon did for ruining a perfectly good indoor pool and as President Bush did for spending a fortune renovating it. Instead the media began spreading the same conspiracy theories accusing Bush of plotting to permanently banish them from the White House.

And that’s exactly what President Trump should do.

“There’s no way the people are being served if they kick the people’s representatives out of the People’s House,” Ron Fournier absurdly postured.

The people elected President Donald J. Trump. Nobody elected Ron Fournier. The National Journal he works for, like most of the Atlantic media properties, specializes in inside baseball for insiders.
Trust ratings and approval levels for the media are so far down in the toilet that it would take a plumber to find them. If the media are the people’s representatives, then the people want to elect different ones. Those are some of the same representatives that the media is trying to ban from social media with a fake “Fake News Crusade” and by resisting any expansion of press briefings with threats and warnings.

“We’ll have to consider doing things other than protesting and whining,” Fournier threatened. “We’ll have to think about what we can do to bring some pain to make our point.”

Do what?

Run items accusing President Trump of being a traitor, a liar, a racist, a rapist and a Batman villain? The media has already done all of those. What else is it going to except shout more lies even louder?

Within a brief span of time, the media’s fake news operation claimed that Trump had banished the bust of MLK, lifted quotes from a Batman villain and had been cavorting with Russian prostitutes.

And that he was a compulsive liar.

That last accusation is notably hilarious considering the honesty and integrity of the media.

We have had to endure days of the media screaming about crowd sizes at the inauguration and the anti-Trump march they were promoting, of claiming that a sentiment as generic as returning power to the people was lifted from a Batman villain, and of dismissing the worst abuses of their colleagues, whether it was lying about the MLK bust, lying about Rick Perry’s job or peddling the lies of the Steele dossier as intelligence work, as mistakes while shouting that Sean Spicer was a liar. Enough is enough.

Margaret Sullivan, the Washington Post’s media columnist and former public editor of the New York Times, declared, “President Trump intends to make the American media his foremost enemy.”

If she had a shred of honesty, she would admit that the media had made him its foremost enemy.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/460-Calendar-2017Biblical-Features-600WIDE.jpg

The media will tell any lie about Trump. It starts every day by accusing him of a dozen different things. And it ends every day by accusing him of a dozen others. It has no standards and no ethics. When one lie, such as the claim that Trump had banished the bust of Martin Luther King, falls apart, they roll out another one. Then they inflate the lie they just told by reporting on it as if it were an actual event.

It’s time to get the press out and restore the White House indoor swimming pool to its original function. The press can remain in it if they don’t mind wet clothes, moldy laptops and ruined cameras.

Press conferences used to be called in the Oval Office and reporters would hang out close to the action. Then, largely Republican presidents, helped make the media’s occupation permanent. And its sense of entitlement grew. It now believes that it has more of a right to be there than President Trump.

President Trump should disabuse them of that delusion.

When we talk about the media, we really mean the representatives of a handful of corporations who are in the business of advocating for the left and attacking the right. There is no journalism involved in all this: only opposition research. The distinction between the media and the political left no longer exists.

There is no reason to embed a voice of the political opposition in the White House whose only function is using the press briefings as platforms for their smears. Nor is there any reason to provide special status to a handful of corporate left-wing operatives while leaving out the rest of the spectrum.

Trump has been opening up more opportunities for conservative media. And that’s a good thing.

The media’s tantrums over being moved from the little theater, no matter how moldy and crumbling it might be, isn’t sentiment; it’s status. Keeping the space small allows them to limit who gets in.

It’s time to open it up.

After the tantrum the media threw over Spicer’s briefing, there is no reason to keep their private club around. Move it out of the White House and open it up to various journalists across the spectrum.

The media hates the idea of Trump tweeting. They ought to get used to it. Their old form of access journalism with its layers of privilege, anonymous sources and selective leaks is the old way. And it makes no sense to provide access journalism to a media whose only agenda is soliciting malicious leaks.

Digital access isn’t the future. It’s the present.

The White House press corps is an outmoded institution. There’s no need to crowd a small number of media elites into a limited space. Or any space at all. We live in a world of instantaneous communications. Every smartphone is capable of doing more than the laptops that reporters were laboring over in the Clinton years. Any of the men and women in that room can email or text their questions. The briefings serve no useful function except as political theater by a privileged class.

President Trump has vowed to drain the swamp. A good place to start is the smarmy swamp of privilege over the White House indoor pool. The small club of the press corps is the embodiment of the old establishment and its corrupt gatekeepers that he has vowed to get rid of. Instead of sparring with them in briefings, it’s time to eliminate their special status and strip them of their privileges.

Trump doesn’t have to go to war with the press corps. All he has to do is make it irrelevant.

Trump Slams Door on Muslim Refugees in Executive Order
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz January 28, 2017 , 10:02 pm
“Shall I not punish for these things? saith Hashem; shall not My soul be avenged on such a nation as this?” Jeremiah 5:29 (The Israel Bible™)
On Friday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order putting a hold on refugees entering the US and travelers from six Muslim-majority countries. The order also would put the emphasis on helping Christian refugees from Muslim-majority countries while curtailing the refugee program.

The order suspended the entry of refugees into the United States for 120 days and directs officials to determine additional vetting procedures.

The order bars entry to travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries linked to terrorism for 90 days: Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen. This includes travelers with immigrant and tourist visas. Green card holders from those countries will also be excluded from entering, and only those holding diplomatic visas will be permitted into the US. The executive order immediately suspended issuance of new visas and other immigration benefits from these countries.

The ban also put an indefinite moratorium on refugees from Syria.

The total number of refugees admitted into the United States in 2017 would also be limited to 50,000, reduced from the current level of 110,000.

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

Trump’s order will also cancel the Visa Interview Waiver Program, allowing repeat travelers to the United States to be able to forgo an personal interview to renew their visa. These travelers will now have to have in-person interviews as part of a stricter vetting process.

These time-limits went into effect immediately and caught many travelers by surprise, forcing them to return to their countries of origin.

Titled “Protection Of The Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into The United States”, the executive order made good on a campaign promise Trump reiterated in his inaugural address: to protect US citizens from radical Islamic terrorism. The text cites the 9-11 attacks, and State Department policy that allowed the terrorists to enter the country.

“I’m establishing new vetting measures to keep radical Islamic terrorists out of the United States of America. Don’t want them here,” Trump said to the press on Friday at the Pentagon. ”We only want to admit those into our country who will support our country and love deeply our people.”

The order also gave the Department of Homeland Security leeway to prioritize refugee claims made by people “on the basis of religious based persecution” if the person applying for refugee status is “a minority religion in the individual’s country of nationality.”

This effectively makes it easier for Christians in majority Muslim countries to enter the United States than it would for Muslims from those countries.

“We are going to help them,” Trump said in a pre-recorded interview with the Christian Broadcast Network. “They’ve been horribly treated. Do you know if you were a Christian in Syria it was impossible, at least very tough, to get into the United States? If you were a Muslim you could come in, but if you were a Christian, it was almost impossible and the reason that was so unfair, everybody was persecuted in all fairness, but they were chopping off the heads of everybody but more so the Christians. And I thought it was very, very unfair.”

Iran Responds to Trump: Bans US Visitors
“As a roaring lion, and a ravenous bear; so is a wicked ruler over a poor people.” (Proverbs 28:15)
In response to President Donald Trumps executive order restricting entry of travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries including Iran, the Iranian government responded in kind on Saturday, announcing it would not allow Americans to enter its country.

On Saturday, Iran’s Foreign Ministry released a statement on state-run media saying:

“While respecting the American people and distinguishing between them and the hostile policies of the U.S. government, Iran will implement the principle of reciprocity until the offensive U.S. limitations against Iranian nationals are lifted. The restrictions against travel by Muslims to America… are an open affront against the Muslim world and the Iranian nation in particular and will be known as a great gift to extremists.”

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani condemned President Trump’s actions in an address at a tourism conference in Tehran televised live on Saturday on state television.
“Today is not the time to erect walls between nations. They have forgotten that the Berlin wall fell years ago,” Rouhani said. “To annul world trade accords does not help their economy and does not serve the development and blooming of the world economy. This is the day for the world to get closer through trade.”

Why Does a Jewish Prayer Quorum Require Ten Men?
“I will be hallowed among B’nei Yisrael: I am Hashem which hallow you.” (Leviticus 22:32)
Based on extrapolation of several Bible verses, the Talmud concludes that “sanctification” occurs in the “midst” of a “congregation” of ten Jewish men, called a minyan-מִנְיָן.

“Based on deep Bible study, the Sages firmly believed that wherever ten Jewish men gather, the Divine Presence resides amongst them,” explained Roni Segal, academic adviser for The Israel Institute of Biblical Studies, to Breaking Israel News. “Judaism has held this belief for over a thousand years. So strong is this dictate that orthodox Jewish men make every effort to attend prayer services with a minyan three times a day, every day of the week.”

Segal pointed out that through in-depth Bible study one comes to understand God’s intentions. For example, the Sages understood that a minimum of ten Jewish men are required to be considered a “congregation” through similar Hebrew words used in Bible phrases.

For example, ten spies went into the land of Canaan and are referred to as a “congregation”.

“How long shall I bear with this evil congregation?” (עַד מָתַי לָעֵדָה הָרָעָה הַזֹּאת-Ad matai l’eida ha-raa ha-zoet) (Numbers 14:27)

In these Bible verses the “children of Israel” refers to Jacob’s ten sons who went down to Egypt to obtain food during a famine:

“And the children of Israel came to buy among those that came” ( וַיָּבֹאוּ בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל לִשְׁבֹּר בְּתוֹךְ-Ve-ya-voe-oo Bnei Israel l’shbor b’toek) (Genesis 42:5)

Here, the words for “sanctification”, “midst” and “children of Israel” are used in one verse.

“And I shall be sanctified in the midst of the children of Israel” ( וְנִקְדַּשְׁתִּי בְּתוֹךְבְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל-Ve-neekdashtee b’toek bnei Israel) (Leviticus 22:32)’

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/486-Banner_Hands_holding_clock_970x250.jpg

The same word, eida-עֵדָה is used for “congregation” in the following along with the word for “midst”:

“Separate yourselves from the midst of this congregation” ( הִבָּדְלוּ מִתּוֹךְ הָעֵדָה הַזֹּאת-Hee-bodloo me-toek ha-eida ha-zoet) (Numbers 16:21)

And, in this verse, “congregation” and “holy” (i.e. “sanctification”) are connected:

“Speak to all the congregation of the sons of Israel and say to them, ‘You shall be holy, for I the LORD your God am holy.” (דַּבֵּר אֶל כָּל עֲדַת בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל וְאָמַרְתָּ אֲלֵהֶם קְדֹשִׁים תִּהְיוּ כִּי קָדוֹשׁ אֲנִי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם-Dabeer el kol eidat Bnei Israel ve-amarta aleihem kodshim teeheeyoo kee kadosh anee A-donoy eloehaychem) (Leviticus 19:2)

By studying all of these factors, traditional Judaism concludes that one way to bring the Divine Presence into the world is through a minyan. “Ten Jewish men gathered are considered a congregation which can bring sanctification,” continued Segal. “In fact, nine learned Rabbis together do not constitute a minyan. Yet, ten simple Jews does. That is a very powerful lesson. An individual can transform a small gathering into a minyan where the Divine Presence rests.”

Additionally, gathering a minyan for serving God might be a way to repent for the gathering of the ten spies who sinned by speaking badly about the Holy land.

“People might wonder why women are not included in a minyan,” shared Segal. “Firstly, since traditionally women cared for the children and home, the rabbis had sensitivity to their situation and would not command them to leave their other obligations to pray three times a day with a minyan. In addition, the Israelite women in the wilderness never sinned against God or the Land of Israel. Therefore, they do not need to participate in a minyan to fix the sin of the men.”

Half-Shekel Temple Tax Reinstated By Sanhedrin
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz January 30, 2017 , 12:30 pm
“Everyone who is numbered, from twenty years old and over, shall give the contribution to the Lord. The rich shall not pay more and the poor shall not pay less than the half shekel, when you give the contribution to the Lord to make atonement for yourselves.” Exodus 30:15 (The Israel Bible™)

After a 2,000 moratorium, it is now possible for a Jew anywhere in the world to perform the mitzvah (commandment) of paying the half-shekel, a Biblically-mandated tax incumbent on every Jew to finance the day-to-day operations of the Temple.

There are now two ways to perform this commandment: one method for people who can hand-deliver their offering, and another for those who can’t.

While the Temple was standing, every Jewish man was required to give one half-shekel weight of silver, approximately eight grams of silver (worth about $4 today), as a mandatory tax to support the Temple. Each man was obligated to give the same amount, regardless of his economic condition. The coins, once deposited in the Temple courtyard, were hekdesh (sanctified) and not permitted to be used for any other purpose.
The nation of Israel continued to observe the commandment even after the First Temple was destroyed until the practice was outlawed by Roman Emperor Hadrian in the year 135 CE. Even Jews who lived outside of Israel continued to donate the half-shekel, despite the Roman Senate forbidding the export of gold and silver.

Twenty years ago, Reuven Prager revived this mitzvah. He began minting silver coins that adhered to the Biblical requirements, producing a new and unique design every year. Those who wish to perform the mitzvah buy the silver coins from Prager, and then deposit them with Otzar Hamikdash (Treasury of the Temple), an organization set up to collect these coins.

Otzar Hamikdash duly deposits them with Brinks Security to await the Third Temple. To date, the organization has collected more than 200,000 coins.

In Temple Times, when it was incumbent on every Jew to make a triannual pilgrimage to Jerusalem, depositing the half-shekel tax was a simple matter. Today, when most Jews live in the Diaspora (outside of Israel), it is much more difficult.

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

For Jews outside of Israel, performing this mitzvah can be inconvenient or even impossible. The coin must be deposited with Otzar Hamikdash in their Jerusalem location. Currently, American law forbids the shipment of these coins to Israel. Prager has arranged collection points in the US but it is not always convenient.

The nascent Sanhedrin has instituted a way to revive the mitzvah to rebuild the Temple. Last September, in honor of counting the first complete year of the 50-year Jubilee cycle on Rosh Hashanah, the Sanhedrin issued a medallion which can be used in place of the actual silver coin to perform the mitzvah.

The biggest advantage of the Sanhedrin coin is that the medallion represents the half-shekel and is not considered sanctified. It therefore does not have to be physically deposited, but the funds are still dedicated for use in the Temple. The Sanhedrin and the Temple Movement hold reenactments of the ceremonies, training Kohanim, men of the priestly class, to accept the tithes. Funds raised from the Sanhedrin medallions are dedicated to priestly training and the recreating of special vessels and utensils for Temple use.

The Sanhedrin approves of Prager’s version of the half-shekel but saw a need that led to the creation of the medallion.

“The half-shekel was a tax intended to be used for a specific purpose,” Rabbi Hillel Weiss, spokesman for the Sanhedrin, explained to Breaking Israel News. “As such, it was dynamic and not simply stored away. As the preparations for the Temple move forward, the need for that tax is reemerging.

“The medallion itself is not sanctified to the Temple, but any money raised by the medallion is sanctified and cannot be used for any other purpose.”

Rabbi Weiss described the Biblical precedents for such an arrangement. There were several cases of sanctified items, like tithes, that could be redeemed for 120 percent their value.

And if a man will at all redeem ought of his tithes, he shall add thereto the fifth part thereof. Leviticus 27:31

Similarly, people who could not bring their own sacrifices bought tokens in the Temple which were redeemed for the animal or grain that were actually used in the sacrifice. Until the return of the three yearly pilgrimage festivals in Jerusalem makes it possible to reinstate the practice of the half-shekel tax being hand-delivered by every Jew to the Temple, the Sanhedrin’s medallion is helping the Temple become a reality.

ICYMI:MK Glick on Attending Trump Inauguration: We Are Living in a Biblical Era
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz January 25, 2017 , 12:30 pm
“Be strong and of good courage; for thou shalt cause this people to inherit the land which I swore unto their fathers to give them.” Joshua 1:6 (The Israel Bible™)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/glick-lect.jpg

In an historic first, a delegation of Israeli parliament members attended an American president’s inauguration last week, signaling a decided change in both the political and spiritual relationships between Americans and Israelis, and Jews and Christians.
The delegation to President Donald Trump’s inauguration last Friday, including two Likud members of Knesset, Rabbi Yehudah Glick, an advocate for universal prayer on the Temple Mount, and Sharren Haskel, was organized by Hayovel, a non-profit organization which brings Christian volunteers to Israel. Also in attendance, though not part of the Hayovel delegation, was settler leader Oded Revivi, mayor of Efrat and chief foreign envoy of the Yesha (Judea and Samaria) Council.

Tommy Waller, Founder of HaYovel (Photo: HaYovel)
“If we want to stand with Israel, we have to start out this administration correctly,” Tommy Waller, founder of Hayovel, told Breaking Israel News, explaining the intention behind forming the delegation. “We have to acknowledge Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria and everything that means.”
Specifically, the delegation was focused on repairing Jewish-Christian relations under the unifying strength of the new administration. “We concentrated on the significant Christian events surrounding the inauguration and connecting the MKs to those leaders,” Tommy Waller, founder of Hayovel, told Breaking Israel News.
“There are so many people in the Christian community who have a heart for Israel but there is a lack of knowledge. This election signals an opening to begin bringing these people and Israel closer to each other.”
Rabbi Glick told Breaking Israel News that the difference between Trump and his predecessor was immediately strikingly clear.
“One change that made me sit up and take notice was when Trump said during his inaugural address that the enemy of the free world is radical Islamic terror, something so many have been waiting to hear a leader say,” Rabbi Glick said. “We’ve just gone through 8 years of depression from what Obama represented, and we just inaugurated a president who, throughout his campaign, connected strongly with Israel and Jerusalem.”
The American-born politician described his expectations for the next administration in Biblical terms.
“We are in a Biblical era, in which the words of the prophets are becoming reality,” Rabbi Glick said. “This new president can choose to be Pharaoh or he can choose to be Cyrus. Cyrus is mentioned in the 45th chapter of Isaiah and Trump is the 45th president. I don’t have any promises from God, but I saw so many people there who had great hope.”
The focal point of the delegation was the inauguration ceremony, but most of their time before and after the inauguration was spent meeting with leaders of Christian and Jewish communities, where the delegation members sought to act as a bridge between the two religions as well as between the two countries. The day before the inauguration, Rabbi Glick attended a three-hour prayer session with over 1,000 Christians.

Mayor of Efrat Oded Revivi (R) (Elinson/FLASH90)
Though Oded Revivi’s delegation was not connected to Hayovel and Yehudah Glick, their goals were the same. Revivi believes that Israel, and indeed the peace process, suffered because of the past administration creating a one-sided conversation.
“There are definitely a lot of people who want to help Israel, but we are used to the American administration dictating terms and telling us what they want,” Revivi told Breaking Israel News.
His delegation met with several think tanks and politicians, and the difference in administrations was immediately apparent. “I was surprised when the people we met wanted to know what we wanted, so that they could help the new administration go in that direction. That is a significant change.”

The Arab War Against the Resurrection of the Dead
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz January 29, 2016 , 8:30 am
“Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when He fighteth in the day of battle. And His feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleft in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, so that there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.” Zechariah 14:4-5 (The Israel Bible™)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/mount-of-olives-cemetary-jerusalem-tombstone-graves-burn.jpg

While Israel battles a horrific wave of Arab terror that has literally caused blood to flow in the streets, a lesser-known side of their jihad is going unseen: the Arab war against Jewish graves. Though less brutal than murder, Arab desecration of Jewish graves is a part of the same war that will not only establish whose land it is, but will also determine the nature of the coming Messiah.

One of the main targets for Arab vandalism is the Mount of Olives and the thousands of Jewish gravesites located there. Gravestones are destroyed and mourners are attacked on a daily basis, requiring special security details to accompany Jews who visit the site.

The Mount of Olives has messianic and religious significance in addition to being an ancient burial site. It is referred to in the book of Zechariah, when he prophesied that the mountain will play an essential part in the Messiah, splitting in two (14:4), with one half shifting south.

The Mount of Olives, adjacent to the Temple Mount, was an integral part of the Temple service. It was where the Para Adumah (red heifer), the major component needed for ritually purity, was burned. Any attack on the Jewish claim to the Temple Mount as part of their religious heritage would necessarily include an attack on the Mount of Olives.

As a site of Biblical significance, and because of its proximity to the Temple Mount, it has been used as a Jewish cemetery for over 3,000 years, and contains over 150,000 gravesites, including the tombs traditionally identified with the Biblical figures Zechariah, Absalom, Haggai, and Malachi.

Religious Jews have always preferred to be buried on the Mount of Olives, since it is the place where the resurrection of the dead will begin. According to the Jewish tradition, people buried outside of Israel will have to burrow through the ground to arrive at the Mount of Olives in order to be resurrected there.

Considered a holy site by international accords, it is protected by international law. Nonetheless, during the Jordanian occupation of East Jerusalem from 1948 to 1967, an estimated 38,000 gravestones were damaged. Four paved roads ran over hundreds of graves, and Jordan’s King Hussein permitted the construction of the Intercontinental Hotel on the mount, destroying some gravesites from the First Temple period. Gravestones were removed and used for paving stones, and some were taken for use as latrines in Jordanian army barracks.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/275-Store-olive-wood-star-600WIDE.jpg

There was a sharp increase in vandalism on the Mount of Olives last September, congruent with the increase in violence against Jews in the Old City. Some gravesites are specifically targeted for vandalism. The grave of the Gerrer Rebbe, former leader of the largest Hasidic sect in Israel, is frequently vandalized. In September, a few hundred meters from where the Muslims were rioting on the Temple Mount, the gravestone of Nathan Mileikowsky, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s grandfather, was destroyed.

An even stranger, more perplexing, phenomenon has appeared in this war on the dead. In 2011, it was discovered the Arabs had begun burying their dead adjacent to the Eastern Wall of the Temple Mount, in between centuries-old Jewish graves and the Temple Mount. Not only was this illegal and destructive to the archaeology of the site, it was, in effect, jumping to the front of the resurrection queue.

Even stranger was when authorities caught Arabs preparing fake Muslim graves at the site, graves which contained no human remains, an action that can only be an attempt to distance Jews from being buried in the spot where the resurrection will begin.

It has also been conjectured that this is an attempt to prevent a Jewish Kohen (priest) from ever performing the ritual of the Red Heifer, since he is forbidden for reasons of ritual purity from walking over a grave, and he must do so in order to bring the ashes of the Red Heifer to the Temple. This is a mistaken belief, since the remains of a non-Jew do not carry impurity.

Breaking Israel News asked Rabbi Pinchas Winston, an authority on the end of days, about this war on the dead. He affirmed that the Arab violence on the Mount of Olives is clearly part of a war against the Messiah. However, he believes that the vandals may not be aware of why they are acting in this illogical manner. Even if they make claims that they are fighting for nationalistic goals, they are part of a greater plan.

“The perpetrators do not have to know the spiritual significance of what they do or where they do it. Everything is orchestrated on higher levels, and the people who carry out the deeds, acting compulsively, only have to believe that the idea originates with them,” he explained.

“In fact, they are merely merely puppets, vehicles for the Divine will to be carried in order to communicate to the spiritually astute the direction history is going and the stage it is at,” added Winston. “Those who are aware of the ‘bigger picture’ know the greater significance of current historical events, and to prepare for what is destined to occur next.”

Netanyahu’s Support for Trump’s Wall Causes Problems With Mexico
By Andrew Friedman January 29, 2017 , 11:51 am
“‘Let be, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.’” Psalms 46:11 (The Israel Bible™)

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s Tweet on Saturday night praising US President Donald Trump’s directive to begin construction on a 1,900-mile wall along the US-Mexico border has caused a standoff with the government of Mexico and created a difficult position for the 60,000-strong Mexican Jewish community.

Saturday night, Netanyahu tweeted, “President Trump is right. I built a wall along Israel’s southern border. It stopped all illegal immigration. Great success. Great idea,” prompting the Mexican Secretariat of Foreign Affairs to quickly contact the Israeli embassy in Mexico City to express “the Mexican government’s absolute shock, disappointment in, and rejection of Prime Minister Netanyahu’s statement regarding the construction of a wall on the border.

“Mexico is a friend of Israel and should be treated as such by its Prime Minister,” the statement said, and added that Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray expressed his deep affection for Israel at an event marking International Holocaust Memorial Day on Friday.

In addition, the Central Committee of the Jewish Community in Mexico broke with normative community policy by slamming Netanyahu, with one comment even comparing Trump’s proposed wall to the electrified fences that surrounded Nazi concentration camps during the second World War.

In many ways, Netanyahu’s support for Trump’s proposed border wall has placed Mexican Jews in a bind: On one hand, the community is wealthy, well-organized and strongly supportive of Israel and Zionism.

On the other hand, President Trump is deeply unpopular in the country as a result of his repeated condemnations of Mexicans and his characterization of Mexican immigrants as “drug dealers, criminals and prostitutes.” Trump’s plan to build a border wall, and especially his demand that Mexico pay for it, is seen as both a national insult to south of the border as well as a threat that could lead to the collapse of the Mexican economy.

IDF troops operating late Saturday night in the city of Jenin in the Shomron (Samaria) were attacked by mobs of Arabs armed with firebombs and rocks.
Soldiers responded with crowd-control measures including tear gas and rubber bullets, after which they targeted live-fire at two Palestinians armed with explosive devices, killing 19-year-old Mohamed Abu Khalifa. Three other young Palestinian men were injured in the clash. No IDF soldiers were injured.

Last Thursday, five members of Khalifa’s family, suspected of being Hamas members, were arrested during an IDF operation in Jenin that also came under attack by residents armed with firebombs and firearms. An IDF soldier was moderately injured by an explosive device in that operation.
The IDF has increased its anti-terror operations due to a recent rise in attacks.

Putin and Trump to Speak on Saturday
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz January 27, 2017 , 11:16 am
“And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Yisrael and one king shall be king to them all; and they shall be no more two nations neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all.” Ezekiel 37:22 (The Israel Bible™)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/trump-putin.jpg
Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin. (Breaking Israel News)
The Kremlin announced on Friday that Russian President Vladmir Putin will speak with US President Donald Trump by telephone on Saturday night for the first time since he was inaugurated. The two spoke in November after Trump’s election victory.

Relations between the two countries deteriorated during the previous administration after Russia annexed Ukraine’s Crimea region in 2014, leading to American sanctions against Russia. The situation reached its peak in the final weeks of Obama’s term in office. In October, Vice President Joe Biden threatened Russia with cyber war on a televised interview. The threat came after White House accusations that Russia had interfered with US elections by hacking more than 100 Democratic Party officials and groups. Russia has repeatedly denied any involvement in the hacking that led to embarrassing revelations about Clinton’s campaign. The situation came to a head in late December when, in the last stage of his presidency, President Obama accused 35 Russian diplomats of spying and expelled them from the US.

President Trump has vowed to improve relations with Russia, suggesting earlier this month he would lift the sanctions against Russia. His nomination of Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State is a step in that direction. As CEO for ExxonMobil, Tillerson worked closely with the Russian government on several large projects.

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

The sentiment seems to be mutual. In his New Year’s address to his nation, Putin congratulated Trump.

“Major global and regional challenges that our countries have confronted in recent years clearly confirm that Russia-US relations are an important factor in ensuring stability and security in the modern world,” Putin said.
On Thursday Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov addressed the Russian parliament saying that his government is ready to move forward in “restoring normal relations.”

“Overcoming the most heavy damage inflicted on the U.S.-Russian relations by the administration of Barack Obama will take time and serious effort,” Lavrov said. “I know that Mr. Trump is considered a master of deal-making, but President Putin also knows how to make deals, and always in Russia’s interests.”

Trump will meet with British Prime Minister Theresa May on Friday, in his first face-to-face meeting with a foreign head of state since being inaugurated.

Palestinians ‘Shocked’ that US Did Not Condemn Israel for Building in Judea and Samaria
https://unitedwithisrael.org/palestinians-shocked-that-us-did-not-condemn-israel-for-building-in-judea-and-samaria/?utm_source=pushengage&utm_medium=push_notification&utm_campaign=pushengage
The Trump administration did not condemn Israel for its announced plans to build housing units in Judea and Samaria, and the Palestinians are deeply upset.

The Trump administration did not denounce Israel for its announcement on Tuesday that it had authorized construction of 2,500 housing units in various locations in Judea and Samaria. The lack of a condemnation from the US has greatly aggravated the Palestinians, who have grown accustomed to an automatic denunciation from the Obama administration to Israeli building activity in the region.

Responding on Wednesday to the White House refusal to condemn Israel, Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Secretary-General Saeb Erekat told AFP, “We used to hear condemnations, we used to hear American positions saying [Israel] should stop settlement activities, [that] it’s an obstacle to peace.'”

“Not commenting, does that mean that President Trump is encouraging… settlement activities? We need an answer from the American administration,” he demanded.

According to AFP, Erekat said he was “shocked” that the White House did not comment on the announcement, adding that Israel had been emboldened by “what they consider encouragement by American President Donald Trump.”

With lack of a negative US stance towards Israel, Erekat called on the “international community” to take action. “The international community must hold Israel accountable immediately for what it is doing,” he declared.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said the administration was still forming its foreign policy team and that building in Judea and Samaria, among other issues, will be discussed when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visits Washington next month.

“Israel continues to be a huge ally of the United States. He [Trump] wants to grow closer with Israel to make sure that it gets the full respect that it deserves in the Middle East, and that’s what he’s going to do. We’re going to have a meeting with Prime Minister Netanyahu. We’ll continue to discuss that,” Spicer stated.

This response is a notable departure from the policies championed by the Obama administration, which repeatedly condemned Israel for building in its capital and in Judea and Samaria.

Israel had refrained from construction and development in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria for several years for fear of blowback from former President Barack Obama and his administration, which repeatedly criticized Israeli “settlement” activity.

Now that Donald Trump, who appears more supportive of Israel’s presence in these areas, has entered office, Israel is expected to push for massive development in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria.

“We are building and will continue to do so,” Netanyahu asserted.

Trump to Halt Funding to UN, International Bodies Which Recognize PA
By Valerie Locke January 26, 2017 , 11:30 am
“Hashem preserveth all them that love Him; but all the wicked will He destroy.” Psalms 145:20 (The Israel Bible™)
image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/donald-trump.jpg
President Donald Trump has signed an executive order halting all US funding to United Nations agencies which recognize the Palestinian Authority (PA) or Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) as a full member, the New York Times reported on Wednesday. Other international bodies and programs which recognize the Palestinians will also be targeted.

The order, entitled “Auditing and Reducing U.S. Funding of International Organizations”, will create a committee tasked with investigating U.S. aid to all international programs and determining if the organizations meet the criteria for defunding. The review process will result in either a drastic reduction or complete cutting of monies to agencies which violate that criteria.

Along with giving full membership to the PA or PLO, agencies will also be defunded for supporting reproductive rights or engaging in activities which violate international sanctions against Iran or North Korea.

The order also calls for withdrawing funding from any organization that “is controlled or substantially influenced by any state that sponsors terrorism.”

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

The executive order is actually based on an existing U.S. statute which mandates that US funding must be withdrawn from any UN agencies which “accords the Palestine Liberation Organization the same standing as member states.”

That statute forced President Barack Obama to defund UNESCO in 2011 after it accepted the Palestinian Authority as a member.

Trump’s executive order calls for “at least a 40 percent overall decrease” in the total amount of aid which the U.S. gives to international organizations. If signed and enacted, the order would drastically slash the budgets of UN agencies, which rely on billions of dollars in U.S. aid annually. Making up 22 percent of its budget, the U.S.’s contributions to the UN far outstrip that of any other country.

The U.N.’s anti-Israel bias is well-documented, as is its noted sympathy to the Palestinian cause. Trump has denounced the international body’s targeting of Israel, warning after the U.N. condemned Israeli settlements in a resolution last month that “things will be different” after his inauguration.

IDF Forces Foil Two Terror Attacks in
Judea and Samaria

The IDF forces foiled two separate attacks in Judea and Samaria on Wednesday, one car-ramming in Binyamin early in the evening and another shooting attack near the Palestinian village of Aboud.

Near Kohav Ya’akov in Binyamin, the terrorist attempted to swerve his car into a bus stop where soldiers and civilians stood waiting for a bus. The soldiers opened fire and killed the attacker. There were no injuries, but some of the bystanders were treated for anxiety attacks.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/207-LIBI%20fight%20terror%20banner%202.jpg

Yechiel Stern, volunteer in the United Hatzalah, said: “I was at the gas station when we heard gunshots originating from the bus station. Civilians told me that the car had tried to run over pedestrians who were at the bus stop but miraculously crashed into a nearby safety pole erected there thanks to lessons drawn from previous similar attacks. It was a miracle no one got hurt.”

Later in the night, a terrorist shot at a military pillbox near Aboud, Ramallah, while in his vehicle. IDF forces fired at the terrorist who was moderately wounded. He was subsequently treated by emergency services and transferred to the Tel Hashomer hospital fully conscious. The attacker was transporting a “Carlo” gun in his car. No casualties or damages are reported to the Israeli forces.

Sanhedrin Calls on President Trump to Uphold Seven Noahide Laws
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz January 26, 2017 , 12:30 pm
“Thus saith Hashem to His anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him, and to loose the loins of kings; to open the doors before him, and that the gates may not be shut.” Isaiah 45:1 (The Israel Bible™)

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/trump.jpg
Trump holds a Bible given to him by his mother (Photo: Video Screenshot / Donald Trump Facebook Page)
In an ancient and honored Jewish custom, the nascent Sanhedrin sent a letter to the new leader of the U.S., President Donald Trump, blessing him and calling on him to take the lead in restoring America and the world. The Sanhedrin also called on the new president to acknowledge and uphold the Seven Noahide laws.

The letter follows the custom of the Jewish people to bless foreign kings as seen in a verse in Jeremiah, Rabbi Dov Stein, secretary of the Sanhedrin, told Breaking Israel News.

And seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray unto Hashem for it; for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace. Jeremiah 29:7

Sanhedrin member Rabbi Yoel Shwartz expanded on the decision, pointing out the importance of Trump’s role. “We turned to President Trump because America functions as a world leader today in many things,” he told Breaking Israel News. “As such, we addressed the new president, asking him to fix things that Barack Obama broke, to bring back family values and to lead the war against radical Islamic terror.

“He has already made moves in the proper direction, and we bless him that he will continue to bring back the values that made America great,” praised Rabbi Shwartz. “We hope he will advance the Noahide laws that are incumbent upon all men.”

The prayer sent by the Sanhedrin to Trump is different from that usually recited by Jews living under foreign rule, Rabbi Stein explained.

“There was a version of the prayer that was said by Jews living under foreign kings, to appease the king in hopes that he will not oppress the Jews under his rule,” said Rabbi Stein. The prayer is still said in synagogues around the world and begins with a verse from Psalms.

Who givest salvation unto kings, who rescuest David Thy servant from the hurtful sword. Psalms 144:10

As suggested by the verse, the prayer is motivated by fear that a monarch ruling over Jews in exile would turn tyrannical and oppressive to the Jews who, as strangers in a strange land, depended on the king’s good will. But the Sanhedrin blessed Trump in a different tradition of blessing foreign monarchs which existed in Biblical Israel.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/144-JerusalemCovenant-600WIDE.jpg

“We blessed him as an independent nation blessing a close ally,” said Rabbi Stein.

The Sanhedrin’s letter begins, “We thank God that a suitable man was chosen to lead America, whose values in the past symbolized a belief in God, and educated its people in morals and family values.”

The Sanhedrin then calls on President Trump to follow the Seven Noahide Laws, given by God as a binding set of laws for all of humanity. The Sanhedrin described the laws as a framework that will benefit all mankind.

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

The 7 Noahide Laws.
“It is essential to return to the divine order that was given at Mount Sinai to all of Man, to the fundamental principle that is common courtesy and common sense preceding everything,” the letter emphasizes. “It is important to return to the seven guidelines given to Noah and his offspring that protect all human and moral obligations.”

The Sanhedrin also urges the president to adhere to his campaign promise of renewed support of Israel, including moving the US embassy to Jerusalem, so that Israel can fulfill its Biblical role as a light unto the nations.

“As an honorable President, you are aware of the importance of Israel as an ally, especially a cultural ally, of the United States. The whole world anticipates the instilling of Bible values – God’s morality given on Mount Sinai for all the world.

“We must work together so that these values ​​will be the inalienable property of all mankind,” the rabbinical body proposes.

The letter concludes with a final benediction for the world, but especially the two allies.
“It is our prayer to God that our way will successfully bring welfare and happiness to all mankind, and especially to Israel and the United States, and all of humanity will benefit from this.”

Israel and US Successfully Test David’s Sling Missile Defense System

The Israeli and American militaries successfully completed a series of missile-interception tests for the David’s Sling defense system, marking a significant milestone for the program’s operability.

“This test campaign is a critical step in ensuring Israel has the capability to defense itself from a very real and growing threat,” said U.S. Missile Defense Agency Director Vice Adm. Jim Syring. “We remain strongly committed to supporting Israel’s development of a missile defense system.”

According to Israeli defense officials, this was the fifth series of tests for David’s Sling. The tests have examined the capabilities and performance of the entire system.

image: https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/122-LIBI-GeneralIAF-600WIDE.jpg

“Threat representative targets were launched and successfully intercepted by Stunner missiles. The MultiMission Radar (MMR) detected the target after launch and transferred flight information to the Battle Management Center (BMC), which calculated the defense plan. The interceptors were successfully launched, performed all flight phases and engaged the targets as planned,” the Israeli Defense Ministry said.

David’s Sling, which is being jointly developed by Israel’s Rafael Advanced Defense Systems and the U.S. firm Raytheon, is designed to serve as the middle tier of Israel’s multilayered missile defense program, which also includes the Iron Dome and Arrow 3 systems.

The successful David’s Sling test comes just a week after the Israeli Air Force received its first delivery of Arrow 3’s long-range missile interceptors. Arrow 3, which is also a joint Israeli-American venture, has the capability to shoot down intercontinental ballistic missiles outside of the Earth’s atmosphere.

CNN Commentator Urges Support for Palestinian Terrorist’s Crowdfunding Campaign
Jan 25, 2017
:
anti-Israel activism
Hill has asked his followers to support a terrorist who planted a bomb near a Jerusalem hospital and wounded nine Israelis.

By: Barney Breen-Portnoy, The Algemeiner

A prominent CNN political commentator urged his Twitter followers on Tuesday to support the crowdfunding campaign of a Palestinian terrorist who carried out a bombing in Jerusalem nearly five decades ago.

Dr. Marc Lamont Hill — a professor of African-American Studies at Morehouse College in Atlanta who, in addition to his CNN role, hosts “BET News” and “VH1 Live!” — tweeted a link on Tuesday to the GoFundMe page of Ali Jiddah, a member of the Afro-Palestinian community in Jerusalem’s Old City who is seeking donations to cover medical debts he incurred over the years due to his refusal to pay into the Israeli insurance system.

In his appeal for help, Jiddah acknowledged serving 17 years in Israeli prison for “being active in the Palestinian national struggle” without mentioning the true reason for his incarceration — his planting of a bomb near a Jerusalem hospital in 1968 that wounded nine Israelis, an act described in the 2014 book Song of the Caged Bird: Words of Resistance in Palestine.

Jiddah, who was a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) terror group, was freed in 1985 as part of the Jibril Agreement — in which Israel released 1,150 imprisoned terrorists in exchange for three Israeli soldiers who were captured during the First Lebanon War.

Hill is known for his anti-Israel views and backing of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. In 2015, he tweeted, “I support BDS in Israel because it’s the best remaining option to end the longest occupation in modern history.”

CNN did not immediately respond to a request from The Algemeiner for comment.

Hill’s latest controversial tweet was first highlighted by pro-Israel blogger Elder of Ziyon.

President Donald Trump is bombing four of the seven countries from where he's restricting immigration
Plans for new executive orders are latest in string of the decrees

President Donald Trump is expected to restrict the issuing of visas to people from seven Middle East and north African countries—of which his military is currently bombing four.

Mr Trump tweeted he was planning a "big day" on national security matters on Wednesday and is also thought to be preparing to ban Syrian refugees from entering the US, until the State and Homeland Security departments finalise a new, stricter vetting process.

Countries subject to the temporary visa restrictions are said to be Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Iran, Sudan and Somalia. The US military is fighting Isis terrorists in the first four states, and carried out an airstrike in Somalia as recently as September last year.

Trump signs order to speed up review of infrastructure projects
Nihad Awad, the national executive director at the Council on American-Islamic Relations, condemned the initial media reports of President Trump’s immigration orders.

"These [executive orders] will not make our nation safer," he tweeted on Tuesday night, "rather they will make it more fearful and less welcoming."

Stephen Legomsky, who was chief counsel at US Citizenship and Immigration Services in the Obama administration, told Reuters the president had the authority to limit refugee admissions and the issuance of visas to specific countries if the administration determined it was in the public’s interest.

He said: "It would be exactly within his legal rights. But from a policy standpoint, it would be terrible idea because there is such an urgent humanitarian need right now for refugees."

The countries on which visa restrictions could be enforced
Iraq
The US is currently trying to retake the city of Mosul from Isis. Iraqi troops, Kurdish forces and Shia militias have advanced through much of the city's east, regaining control of key local government buildings and the city’s university on Friday, but areas to the west of the river Tigris remains under Isis control.

Living under ISIS: Children in Iraq not receiving education
About 1.5 million civilians were living in the city when the operation to retake it began in October, according to UN figures, and 400,000 have now been freed.
Syria

More than 100 Islamist fighters were killed by US air strikes on a training camp in Syria as American forces expanded their assault beyond Isis on Thursday.

The Department of Defence said warplanes and drones were involved the operation on the Shaykh Sulayman camp in northern Syria, on the last day of Barack Obama’s presidency.

Tens of thousands of people have been killed in the Syrian civil war and millions more have fled the country or been displaced internally amid the destruction of major cities.

Libya

US stealth bombers recently carried out strikes against Isis fighters who had fled their former stronghold of Sirte, and who officials said were plotting terror attacks against Europe.

Ashton Carter, the outgoing US defence secretary, said initial estimates suggested more than 80 fighters were killed.

Isis expanded into Libya in the chaos that followed the ouster and assassination of former dictator Muammar Gadaffi.

Yemen

The US has carried out drone strikes in the nation, aimed at al-Qaeda militants

The latest of these strikes were carried out on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, killing a handful of al Qaeda militants, according to the Pentagon.

The strikes were aimed at al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), and were the first such strikes to take place under President Donald Trump.

The world has forgotten the Yemen war, says senior UN humanitarian official
The strikes, which were later confirmed by the Pentagon, did not require Trump to sign off on them. Under then-President Barack Obama, the authority to order such strikes in Yemen was devolved to the four-star commander of US Central Command, Gen. Joseph Votel.

The strikes killed five al-Qaeda operatives and took place in the town of al Bayda, according to Pentagon spokesman US Navy Capt. Jeff Davis.

Outside of US activity, the United Nations has said the civilian death toll in Yemen's nearly two-year conflict has reached 10,000, with 40,000 others wounded.

The conflict pits Shiite Houthi rebels and allied forces against a Saudi-led coalition of nations. The coalition began an air campaign in March 2015 to restore the internationally recognised government that fled the country after Houthis seized the capital.

Preparations for Mr Trump's promised border wall are also expected to get under way on Wednesday. He tweeted: "Big day planned on NATIONAL SECURITY tomorrow. Among many other things, we will build the wall!"

BREAKING NYT REPORT: TRUMP ADMIN PREPARES EXEC ORDER TO END FUNDING FOR UN AGENCIES GIVING FULL MEMBERSHIP TO PA, PLO
THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION IS PREPARING TWO EXECUTIVE ORDERS THAT ARE LIKELY TO CAUSE AN EARTHQUAKE IN THE MIDDLE EAST.
By: Hana Levi Julian, Jewish Press, January 25th, 2017:
The New York Times reported Wednesday in a breaking story that the staff of U.S. President Donald J. Trump is preparing an executive order that would terminate funding for any United Nations agency or other international organization that gives full membership to the Palestinian Authority or the Palestine Liberation Organization.

In addition, the order terminates funding for programs or activities that fund abortion or circumvent sanctions against Iran or North Korea.

According to the report, the draft order also calls for terminating funding for any organization that is “controlled or substantially influenced by any state that sponsors terrorism” or is held responsible for persecution of marginalized groups, or systematic violation of human rights.

Moreover, the order calls for a minimum 40 percent cut across the board in remaining U.S. funding of international organizations, and establishes a committee to make recommendations as to where the cuts should be made.

The list of potential targets includes funding for peacekeeping operations, the International Criminal Court at The Hague, aid to nations who “oppose important United States policies” and the United Nations Population Fund.

A second executive order calls for a review of all current and pending treaties with more than one other nation – applicable only to those not “directly related to national security, extradition or international trade”– and asks for recommendations on which to retain.

ISIS-Fighting Israeli Imprisoned, Tortured, Held for Ransom
By Andrew Friedman January 25, 2017 , 1:30 pm
“If there be laid on him a ransom, then he shall give for the redemption of his life whatsoever is laid upon him.” Exodus 21:30 (The Israel Bible™)

MK Ayoub Kara (Likud) said Wednesday that Ben Hassin, the 21-year-old Jewish Israeli man accused of killing a taxi driver in an Arab country that does not maintain diplomatic relations with Israel, has reportedly been tortured and is increasing danger every day that passes.

“[Ben] is in jail in a country that we do not have diplomatic relations with. I can say that the young man is in very poor health, that he has been threatened inside the jail and is kept in solitary confinement,” Kara told TPS .

Hassin is believed to have visited Kurdistan to visit his grandparents in 2015, and to have joined a local militia to fight the Islamic State while there. While there a taxi driver discerned that his passenger was Israeli, and Hassin has been charged with killing the driver once he realized his life was in danger.

In a phone interview with TPS, Kara confirmed the basic outline of the story and said the family of the taxi driver has demanded $120,000 in blood money, and the government of the country that is holding Hassin has threatened to execute him “soon” if the money is not paid. Kara would not confirm a date for the execution, but said that “every day that passes increases the danger to his life.”

The issue is complicated by the fact that the charges against Ben Hassin are criminal in nature, rather than security-based. That means the Israeli government cannot legally pay the bribe.

In addition, Kara accused the foreign ministry of having refused to assist the family, at first because they said it was a security-based case, and more recently because Ben Hassin is being held on criminal charges. The Ministry rejects the charge, saying it has treated the issue “with full seriousness,” but Kara doesn’t buy it.

“So why did they criticize me two months ago on grounds that I’d publicized a security story?” Kara asked rhetorically. “If they are dealing with it, why did they blacken my name by saying I’d exposed a security issue? Now they say they won’t deal Hassin with it because it is criminal or civilian case?”

In order to address the issue, Kara has started a crowdfunding campaign to obtain Hassin’s release. The MK would not give a concrete number of donations the campaign has received, but he told TPS that the very first call he received as for a $10,000 donation.

“We have got a life to save, and I want to pay this ransom as early as next week. The family’s original demand was a lot higher, but we managed to get them down to $120,000. It’s only been a day but the response to our call has been phenomenal – donations can be made by phone, to number 1700 700 107, or directly to the Postal Bank account that has been set up, account number 7155880.

“I don’t want to say exactly how much we’ve raised, but I believe we will meet the target in the coming days,” Kara said.

MK Glick on Attending Trump Inauguration:
We Are Living in a Biblical Era
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz January 25, 2017 , 12:30 pm
“Be strong and of good courage; for thou shalt cause this people to inherit the land which I swore unto their fathers to give them.” Joshua 1:6 (The Israel Bible™)

In an historic first, a delegation of Israeli parliament members attended an American president’s inauguration last week, signaling a decided change in both the political and spiritual relationships between Americans and Israelis, and Jews and Christians.

The delegation to President Donald Trump’s inauguration last Friday, including two Likud members of Knesset, Rabbi Yehudah Glick, an advocate for universal prayer on the Temple Mount, and Sharren Haskel, was organized by Hayovel, a non-profit organization which brings Christian volunteers to Israel. Also in attendance, though not part of the Hayovel delegation, was settler leader Oded Revivi, mayor of Efrat and chief foreign envoy of the Yesha (Judea and Samaria) Council.

“If we want to stand with Israel, we have to start out this administration correctly,” Tommy Waller, founder of Hayovel, told Breaking Israel News, explaining the intention behind forming the delegation. “We have to acknowledge Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria and everything that means.”

Specifically, the delegation was focused on repairing Jewish-Christian relations under the unifying strength of the new administration. “We concentrated on the significant Christian events surrounding the inauguration and connecting the MKs to those leaders,” Tommy Waller, founder of Hayovel, told Breaking Israel News.

“There are so many people in the Christian community who have a heart for Israel but there is a lack of knowledge. This election signals an opening to begin bringing these people and Israel closer to each other.”
Rabbi Glick told Breaking Israel News that the difference between Trump and his predecessor was immediately strikingly clear.

“One change that made me sit up and take notice was when Trump said during his inaugural address that the enemy of the free world is radical Islamic terror, something so many have been waiting to hear a leader say,” Rabbi Glick said. “We’ve just gone through 8 years of depression from what Obama represented, and we just inaugurated a president who, throughout his campaign, connected strongly with Israel and Jerusalem.”

The American-born politician described his expectations for the next administration in Biblical terms.
“We are in a Biblical era, in which the words of the prophets are becoming reality,” Rabbi Glick said. “This new president can choose to be Pharaoh or he can choose to be Cyrus. Cyrus is mentioned in the 45th chapter of Isaiah and Trump is the 45th president. I don’t have any promises from God, but I saw so many people there who had great hope.”
The focal point of the delegation was the inauguration ceremony, but most of their time before and after the inauguration was spent meeting with leaders of Christian and Jewish communities, where the delegation members sought to act as a bridge

between the two religions as well as between the two countries. The day before the inauguration, Rabbi Glick attended a three-hour prayer session with over 1,000 Christians.

Though Oded Revivi’s delegation was not connected to Hayovel and Yehudah Glick, their goals were the same. Revivi believes that Israel, and indeed the peace process, suffered because of the past administration creating a one-sided conversation.

“There are definitely a lot of people who want to help Israel, but we are used to the American administration dictating terms and telling us what they want,” Revivi told Breaking Israel News.

His delegation met with several think tanks and politicians, and the difference in administrations was immediately apparent. “I was surprised when the people we met wanted to know what we wanted, so that they could help the new administration go in that direction. That is a significant change.”

Trump Freezes Obama’s $221m Payment to Palestinians
The Trump administration has frozen Obama’s secret massive monetary gift to the Palestinian Authority.

Former US President Barack Obama, in his waning hours, quietly released $221 million to the Palestinian Authority (PA), which Congress had been blocking.

The Trump administration announced it is freezing the move.

The State Department is reviewing the last-minute decision by former Secretary of State John Kerry to send $221 million dollars to the Palestinians late last week.

Kerry formally notified Congress that State would release the money Friday morning, just hours before President Donald Trump took the oath of office.

The funds — supposedly intended for reconstruction in Gaza and good governance programs for the Palestinian Authority — were being blocked by at least two Republican lawmakers— Ed Royce (R-CA), the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and Kay Granger (R-TX), who sits on the House Appropriations Committee — in response to Palestinian attempts to join international organizations, from which it intended to launch more international campaigns against Israel and before a peace deal with Israel.

Such holds are generally respected but are not legally binding.

When asked about the transfer by a reporter during Tuesday’s press briefing, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said that “[Trump] is very concerned about how taxpayer money is spent, whether it’s sent overseas and what we get for it in terms of the relationship or our support for a democracy or aid to another country for their defenses. But he’s going to be examining all aspects of the budget… He’s going to make sure that every deal, every dollar that is spent by the government is done in a way that respects the American taxpayer.”
