Impervious Hubris: How U.S. Intelligence Failures
Led to ISIS
By Raymond Ibrahim
Over a decade after U.S. leadership declared a “war on terror,” all it has to show for it is the creation of the Islamic State—an Islamic body that has taken terror and atrocities to a whole new level. How did this happen?
A key factor often overlooked is the intelligence community’s failures concerning what fuels the jihadis.

Consider Michael Scheuer, author of the 2004 national bestseller Imperial Hubris: Why the West Is Losing the War on Terror.   Scheuer’s credentials as described in that book are impressive:  “For the past seventeen years, my career has focused exclusively on terrorism, Islamic insurgencies, militant Islam… I have earned my keep and am able to speak with some authority and confidence about Osama bin Laden, al-Qaeda, [and] the dangers they pose and symbolize for the Unites States…”  Indeed, Scheuer also served as Senior Adviser for the Osama Bin Laden Department and Chief of the Sunni Militant Unit.

The fundamental thesis of his book was that al-Qaeda’s terrorism is a reaction to U.S. foreign policies: “Bin Laden has been precise in telling America the reasons he is waging war on us. None of the reasons have anything to do with our freedom, liberty, and democracy, but everything to do with U.S. policies and actions in the Muslim world,” wrote Scheuer.

As proof, he regularly quoted bin Laden’s messages to the West, which did in fact validate Scheuer’s assessment.  He went on to compare bin Laden, that jihadi terrorist, to heroes like Robin Hood and even Saint Francis of Assisi, and concluded that al-Qaeda’s war revolves around “love”:

Bin Laden and most militant Islamists, therefore, can be said to be motivated by their love for Allah and their hatred for a few, specific, U.S. policies and actions they believe are damaging—and threatening to destroy—the things they love. Theirs is a war against a specific target, and for specific, limited purposes. While they will use whatever weapon comes to hand—including weapons of mass destruction—their goal is not to wipe out our secular democracy, but to deter us by military means from attacking the things they love. Bin Laden et al are not eternal warriors.

image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/BIN-OpEd-Experts-300x2501.png

BIN-OpEd-Experts-300x250(1)
American liberals, academics, politically correct media, politicians, and government—in a word, the establishment—willingly embraced and regurgitated this Muslim grievance thesis which, while not original to Scheuer, certainly received a boost thanks to his book.

It was in this context that I sought to translate al-Qaeda’s Arabic writings that I discovered in 2004 while working at the Library of Congress.  As opposed to the carefully crafted communiques al-Qaeda was sending to the West—which were presented without context and accepted hook, line, and sinker by many so-called “experts”—these arcane writings were directed to fellow Muslims.  They made perfectly clear al-Qaeda’s ultimate motive in attacking the West: Islam’s commands for Muslims to hate and subjugate the non-Muslim, or “infidel.”

Here’s a sampling of what bin Laden was writing to fellow Muslims, even as he was duping Western analysts with talk of “grievances”:

As to the relationship between Muslims and infidels, this is summarized by the Most High’s Word: “We renounce you. Enmity and hate shall forever reign between us—till you believe in Allah alone.” So there is an enmity, evidenced by fierce hostility from the heart. And this fierce hostility—that is, battle—ceases only if the infidel submits to the authority of Islam, or if his blood is forbidden from being shed [i.e., a dhimmi], or if Muslims are at that point in time weak and incapable [in which case, bin Laden later clarifies, they should dissemble (taqiyya) before the infidels by, say, portraying their violence as a product of “grievances”]. But if the hate at any time extinguishes from the heart, this is great apostasy!… Such, then, is the basis and foundation of the relationship between the infidel and the Muslim. Battle, animosity, and hatred—directed from the Muslim to the infidel—is the foundation of our religion (The Al Qaeda Reader, p. 43).

Bin Laden also asked and answered the pivotal question:

Does Islam, or does it not, force people by the power of the sword to submit to its authority corporeally if not spiritually? Yes. There are only three choices in Islam: either willing submission; or payment of the jizya [tribute], through physical though not spiritual submission to the authority of Islam; or the sword—for it is not right to let him [an infidel] live.

How does one square such clear assertions with Scheuer’s claims that “None of the reasons [for al-Qaeda’s antipathy] have anything to do with our freedom, liberty, and democracy”? I raised this question in a 2008 article criticizing Scheuer’s claims about al-Qaeda’s motivations.

In response, Scheuer lashed out in the comments section of the article (see my full response to him here).   Instead of acknowledging that al-Qaeda’s own words damned his thesis, the man who insisted Islamic terrorism was a product of “imperial hubris” exhibited a sort ofimpervious hubris—impervious to facts and reality, that is.  He sarcastically wrote:

Mr. Ibrahim’s Al Qaeda Reader is an excellent example of what passes for solid analysis and intellectual honesty among Neo-conservatives….  In this highly selective collection, Mr. Ibrahim picks and chooses from the enormous corpus of writings, statements, and interviews by bin Laden and al-Zawahiri to produce a slim volume which he claims will once and for all prove that Al Qaeda and its allies are bent on imposing a worldwide Caliphate to be governed by what the Necons are pleased to call Islamo-fascism…  [T]he book deliberately misleads an America public…

For the record, my “slim volume” is 320 pages long.  As for it being a “highly selective collection,” the book is actually the most balanced of its kind, as it presents al-Qaeda’s releases to the West and its exhortations to its Muslim followers.  For example, whereas Bruce Lawrence’s Messages to the World: The Statements of Osama Bin Laden (2005), complemented Scheuer’s grievance paradigm by only presenting al-Qaeda’s propaganda communiques to the West, The Al Qaeda Reader juxtaposes both the terrorist group’s doctrinal writings to fellow Muslims (as quoted above) and its grievance claims to the West, giving the reader a more complete picture.

image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/47-SupportBIN-600WIDE.jpg

At any rate, now, a decade later, the “why do they hate us” question has been settled by those best positioned to settle it: the Islamic State, or al-Qaeda 2.0.  In a recent article titled “Why We Hate You & Why We Fight You,” the Islamic State gives six reasons.   Reason number one says it all:

We hate you, first and foremost, because you are disbelievers; you reject the oneness of Allah – whether you realize it or not – by making partners for Him in worship, you blaspheme against Him, claiming that He has a son [Christ], you fabricate lies against His prophets and messengers, and you indulge in all manner of devilish practices. It is for this reason that we were commanded to openly declare our hatred for you and our enmity towards you. “There has already been for you an excellent example in Abraham and those with him, when they said to their people, ‘Indeed, we are disassociated from you and from whatever you worship other than Allah. We have rejected you, and there has arisen, between us and you, enmity and hatred forever until you believe in Allah alone’” (Al-Mumtahanah 4 [i.e., Koran 60:4, the same verse bin Laden quoted above]). Furthermore, just as your disbelief is the primary reason we hate you, your disbelief is the primary reason we fight you, as we have been commanded to fight the disbelievers until they submit to the authority of Islam, either by becoming Muslims, or by paying jizyah – for those afforded this option [“People of the Book”] – and living in humiliation under the rule of the Muslims [per Koran 9:29].

It is only in reasons five and six that ISIS finally mentions “grievances” against Western foreign policies—only to quickly clarify:

What’s important to understand here is that although some might argue that your foreign policies are the extent of what drives our hatred, this particular reason for hating you is secondary, hence the reason we addressed it at the end of the above list. […]  The fact is, even if you were to stop bombing us, imprisoning us, torturing us, vilifying us, and usurping our lands, we would continue to hate you because our primary reason for hating you will not cease to exist until you embrace Islam. Even if you were to pay jizyah and live under the authority of Islam in humiliation, we would continue to hate you [emphasis added].

It is this unrelenting hatred that many Westerners cannot comprehend; a hate that compels Muslim husbands to hate their non-Muslim wives and America’s “friends and allies,” such as Saudi Arabia and Qatar, to publish government sanctioned decrees openly proclaiming their hate for America, because it is not Islamic.

And it was always this hate that fueled al-Qaeda’s jihad—not grievances.

Incidentally, it’s worth noting that in Scheuer’s response to me, he mocked my prediction that the caliphate would be resurrected, claiming that “the Islamists know that it is as unlikely to appear in their or their grandsons’ lifetimes as Christians know that a uniform world of turning-of-the-cheek or loving-thy-neighbor is at best light years over the horizon.”  Likewise in Imperial Hubris he wrote: “At this point in history, we need worry little about the threat of an offensive and expansionist jihad meant to conquer new lands for Islam and convert new peoples to the faith” (page 7).

Really?  Tell that to the many non-Muslims and non-Sunnis—Christians, Yazidis, Druze, Shia—who have been enslaved, raped, slaughtered, burned and buried alive, as the caliphate expanded into their territories over the last couple of years.

All of this was enabled by the West’s embrace of the “grievance” theory, championed not created by the likes of Scheuer.  It ran its course and was behind abysmal policies meant to pacify supposedly aggrieved Muslims—such as wholesale support for the “Arab Spring,” which saw the Obama administration turn its back on 30-year-long allies such as Egypt’s secular Mubarak in favor of the Muslim Brotherhood.  The grievance theory is partially responsible for why, a decade after the U.S. started bringing “freedom and democracy” to this and that Muslim nation—Iraq, Egypt, Libya, ongoing in Syria—specifically by ousting secular dictators long experienced at suppressing jihadis, all that the most powerful and freedom loving nation in the world has to show for it is the creation of the Islamic State.

Even so, the impervious hubris continues.  Instead of accepting the hard facts—Islamic hostility is a product of Islamic teachings—the Obama administration, including the CIA, continue invoking the “grievance” and related memes concerning ISIS.  Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said that it’s important to be “showing respect even for one’s enemies, trying to understand and insofar as psychologically possible, empathize with their perspective and point of view,” that is, empathize with their grievances?

Clinton said this at Georgetown University, which is fitting.  For, you may ask, where is Michael Scheuer now—this man who didn’t have to wait till our “grandsons’ lifetimes” to see just how much he got wrong?  He’s where all who excel at denying Islam has any connection to violence for the other: teaching a future generation of “terrorism experts” at Georgetown University.

Amazing Photo of Israel From Space Reveals Holy Land in a New Light
By Abra Forman September 22, 2016 , 1:30 pm
“I Hashem have called thee in righteousness, and have taken hold of thy hand, and kept thee, and set thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the nations.” Isaiah 42:6 (The Israel Bible™)

image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/nasa-middle-east-1.jpg
Nighttime View of Northern Egypt and the Sinai Peninsula from space. (NASA)
A spectacular photo of Israel and the Middle East, taken from the Space Station and released by NASA on Wednesday, prove what much of the world already knows: Israel is quite literally a light unto the nations.

The photo, showing Northern Egypt, the Sinai Peninsula, and the whole of Israel, as well as other neighboring countries, provide a stark contrast between Israel’s tiny yet brightly glowing crescent and the large swathes of dark, empty land surrounding it on all sides.

image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/nasa-middle-east-1024x682.jpg

The northern tip of Egypt is visible, with a network of lit and developed areas branching out from the massive glow of Cairo, though the rest of the country is noticeably dark. The vast but empty Sinai Peninsula boasts only a few pockets of light on the coasts, marking the Suez Canal and the Egyptian towns of El Tor, Sharm El-Sheikh, and Dahab.

The point of light on the eastern coast of the Sinai where it meets Jordan shows Eilat, an Israeli resort town at the country’s southernmost tip.

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

Israel itself, a fraction of the size of its Middle Eastern neighbors, is a brightly lit from the bottom of the Negev to its northern point. The lights of Jerusalem to the east are easily visible, and the coast is illuminated from north to south, with Tel Aviv and Haifa marking two of Israel’s largest population centers. A network of glowing towns, roads, cities and villages spreads throughout the entire country; even the barren Negev is dotted with small points of light.

Surrounding Israel, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria are noticeably dark, with proportionally fewer signs of life.

Israel, though very small and very young, is known for its innovative technology and the “start up” culture that has made it one of the most important high-tech centers in the world. Its Middle Eastern neighbors, however, generally less prosperous and with lower standards of living, are noticeably absent from the world stage when it comes to technological and agricultural advances.

This latest image illuminates a principle first spoken by God and brought to life in modern times. Israel’s fate, spiritually, intellectually and literally, is to shine a divine light unto the nations of the world.

IAF Fighter Jet Shoots Down Hamas Drone Over Gaza
By Abra Forman September 20, 2016 , 1:30 pm
“But God doth shoot at them with an arrow suddenly; thence are their wounds.” Psalms 67:8 (The Israel Bible™)

Israel Air Force fighter jets shot down a Hamas-operated drone over the Gaza Strip on Tuesday afternoon, the IDF reported. The drone was over the Gaza coastline when the IAF took aim and brought it down.
An IDF spokesperson said that the drone had been “under IAF surveillance from the moment it took off from the Gaza Strip.”
“The IDF will not permit any violation of its air space, and will act with determination against any such effort,” added the military.
The drone was in the air for just a few minutes before the IAF took it out, though it did not enter Israeli air space at any point, the Times of Israel reported.
Once hit, the drone crashed into the Mediterranean, the army said.
Hamas is known to be developing drone capabilities, “especially in the last two years,” IDF spokesperson Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said.

"World Cannot Continue to Believes it's Funding Greenhouses in Gaza": UN Ambassador Danon
By Jonathan Benedek September 20, 2016 , 8:30 am
“Take counsel together, and it shall be brought to nought; speak the word, and it shall not stand; for God is with us.” Isaiah 8:10 (The Israel Bible™)

Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon announced a diplomatic offensive on Monday, to prevent international financial assistance to the Palestinians from falling into the hands of Hamas.
Speaking to reporters at the United Nations headquarters in New York, Danon cited repeated instances of humanitarian aid being diverted to help build Hamas’ terror infrastructure.

“The UN and other international organizations must put an immediate end to the exploitation of their funds and resources by Hamas,” Danon said.  “We will not relent until the UN and other aid organizations begin to track and follow every dollar that enters the Gaza Strip.”
Danon’s briefing was timed to coincide with the annual donor conference for the Palestinian Authority and came one month after a Palestinian employee of the World Vision NGO and a Palestinian employee of Gaza’s UN Development Program were found to have transferred significant amounts of aid to Hamas.
“Israel welcomes the contributions of the donor countries and places great importance on these efforts,” said Danon.

Danon also noted that he has asked UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon for assistance in creating oversight mechanisms to prevent such transfers from recurring, but Ban’s office told Tazpit Press Service (TPS) that the world body has sufficient controls in place.

Calling Congress: The U.S.-Israel Memorandum of Understanding
By Shoshana Bryen September 20, 2016 , 8:00 am
Yes. It is a lot of money.

Yes. A ten-year deal provides a stable base for Israeli planning.

Yes. With the unsettled American political situation and the unsettled military situation in Israel’s neighborhood, stability counts.

No. Israel’s military industries will not collapse without the use of 25% of its American aid internally.

Yes. Israel remains a close and respected ally of the American military establishment.

So why does the new U.S.-Israel Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) feel oddly coercive on the part of President Obama? True, the current U.S. president finds the current prime minister of Israel to be a strategic liability regarding his plans for Iran as well as a general pain in the neck. So there is the “punishment” angle. But at least as important is the ongoing power play between the president and Congress. This encompasses missile defense, an Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMA) for Iraq and Syria, climate change, the Iran deal, “no first use” nuclear policy, Israel, and more.

Israel is the target of both direct and indirect presidential fire as the MOU sets out to change fundamental security relations between Israel and the Congress, which, for the past eight years, have been most valuable in the area that President Obama finds least acceptable — missile defense

In 2012, Defense News wrote that not only had the administration requested a funding cut for jointly developed missile defense programs, but that “this marks the third consecutive year that the administration has requested less funding and it will not be the last, according to its own budget projections.” And, indeed, from the 2010 request (Obama’s first) to the 2017 request (his last) the Administration has shortchanged Israel’s missile defense requirements with the sure knowledge that Congress would put the money back. That way, the president could claim to be a friend of Israel’s defense — by citing the total figure — without actually acknowledging Israel’s needs by putting the money in the Executive Branch request to Congress.

Now President Obama is tying Israel’s hands for the future by extracting a promise that it will not approach Congress for funds in excess of those in the MOU “unless it is at war.” What does that mean? Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria still maintain a state of war with Israel, as does Iran, Hamas, Hezbollah and sometimes the Palestinian Authority. Did the Obama Administration leave Israel a loophole for Congressional assistance? Or is it denying that Israel lives in a perpetual and evolving state of threat and often fights “wars” that are essential to the protection of its population, but are not formally declared?

A Joyous Holiday and a Sad World
By Dr. Mordechai Kedar September 20, 2016 , 11:00 am
Two million Muslims will be making the obligatory pilgrimage to Mecca, known as the Hajj, this month, as mandated by the Islamic calendar. The Hajj is one of the five basic pillars of Islam, a commandment that every Muslim must fulfill at least once in his lifetime.  Muslims from all over the Islamic world come to the Hajj, differing in appearance, skin color, language, dress, culture and customs, but all take part in rituals performed according to the stringent dictates originating in the Hannibal code of law as interpreted by the Wahhabi Saudi regime.
The Hajj symbolizes the ingathering of all Muslims to “The House of Allah,” as well as the love and affection that are expected to reign between Muslims and the happiness that unites them in their joint dedication to the service of Allah. The robe worn by the pilgrims – the “ihram” – a white sheath without pockets – signifies the modesty that man must show when coming to the home of his Lord and the absence of pockets proves that all belongs to Allah, that man’s property is worth nothing,  is temporary and perishable at best. The fact that the robes are identical and worn by all symbolizes that all are equal before Allah, rich and poor, king and servant, honored and despised. The pristine color of the ihram expresses the forgiveness for transgressions that takes place at the Hajj where every man who repents is cleansed of his sins.
The Hajj is an wrenching emotional experience, the most massive assembly in the world.  The intensive and crowded meeting with Muslims from a myriad of different cultures, the religious rituals, the speeches and prayers, all turn the Hajj into an ecstatic experience that creates a feeling that believers cannot achieve in other places or occasions. Pilgrims return from the Hajj with glowing eyes, veins suffused with religious adrenaline, heightened religious fervor and renewed and intense loyalty to Allah.
For most of those who return from the Hajj, this heightened religious fervor is expressed in adherence to the behaviors that are central to Islam: five prayers a day, fasting during Ramadan charity to the poor, modest dress, proper behavior and speech, avoidance of sins and transgressions and better relations with family and surroundings. Some of those returning from the Hajj interpret their heightened religious intensity as a reason to turn to Jihad, not only against the evil inclination within man’s soul but against infidels as well. And thus, not a small number of the Jihadists fighting in various areas were drawn in by representatives of terror groups who come to the Hajj in order to meet those most vulnerable to their efforts.
A massive gathering in an average-sized city like Mecca causes acute safety dangers because of the extreme crowding due to the fact that everyone has to perform the same rites at the same time and on the same day. The Saudi royal household invests enormous sums to build an infrastructure that will allow the crowds to perform the rituals safely, and builds bridges, lanes, passages, sidewalks and roads that create a secure environment for the millions who come to the Hajj.

Obama Tells UN Israel Can’t Permanently “Occupy” Palestinian Land
By JNS September 21, 2016 , 7:30 am

“And ye shall drive out the inhabitants of the land, and dwell therein; for unto you have I given the land to possess it.” Numbers 33:53 (The Israel Bible™)

image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/obama-un.jpg)
Obama addresses the UN General Assembly. (Video screenshot)
U.S. President Barack Obama summarized his analysis of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in his final address to the United Nations General Assembly in New York on Tuesday.

“Surely Israelis and Palestinians will be better off if Palestinians reject incitement and recognize the legitimacy of Israel…[and if] Israel recognizes that it cannot permanently occupy and settle Palestinian land,” Obama said in a portion of his speech, calling for a “course correction” of nations on the path to “global integration.”

In Obama’s eight years in office, his administration has not succeeded in their efforts to produce a peace agreement.

Israel was not the only nation critiqued by Obama.

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

Russia was derided for using force to return to its “former glory” and fueling “nationalistic fervor.”

“The mindset of sectarianism, and extremism, and bloodletting, and retribution that has been taking place will not be quickly reversed,” Obama said. “And if we are honest, we understand that no external power is going to be able to force different religious communities or ethnic communities to co-exist for long.”

Obama said that for global integration to succeed, the world “must reject any forms of fundamentalism, or racism, or a belief in ethnic superiority that makes our traditional identities irreconcilable with modernity.  Instead, we need to embrace the tolerance that results from respect of all human beings.”

The Temple Has “Reappeared” - You Won’t Believe How [PHOTOS]
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz September 19, 2016 , 12:30 pm
“Thus saith Hashem: The heaven is My throne, and the earth is My footstool; where is the house that ye may build unto Me? And where is the place that may be My resting-place?” Isaiah 66:1 (The Israel Bible™)

image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/temple-1.jpg

Virtual reality depiction of the Holy Temple. (Video screenshot)
Last week, some visitors to the Western Wall (Kotel) in Jerusalem reported that they had seen the Second Temple reappear, and though the Messiah hasn’t yet arrived, the reports were indeed accurate. A new project from The Temple Mount Heritage Foundation and ArchTour is perhaps the closest you can get to experiencing the Temple, at least until it is really built.

The newly unveiled project uses virtual reality, a new technology used mainly for gaming and entertainment, in a way its innovators probably did not anticipate: immersing the user in a religious journey. The participant sits while wearing a special set of virtual reality goggles, which put him into a three-dimensional depiction of the world of the Second Temple.

The tour begins in the open air shuk (market) in Jerusalem of approximately 2,000 years ago. It wanders by Robinson’s Arch and the Royal Stoa in the southwest corner in all their full glory, before passing in through the gates of the Temple. The virtual tour brings “visitors” through the Temple courtyards, past the altar, into the midst of the priests and their daily activity.

The tour ends inside the Temple, where the visitor can see the menorah, the seven branched lamp, and the rack that held the show breads. Though animal sacrifices are not shown, the High Priest is seen performing the ketoret, the daily service in which the incense composed of 11 spices was burned on the small ‘Gold Altar’.

And Aharon shall burn thereon incense of sweet spices; every morning, when he dresseth the lamps, he shall burn it. Exodus 30:7

“In order to arrive at the necessary level of accuracy required for the project, we had to consult with archaeologists and rabbinic experts,” Tal Koewyn, the public relations coordinator for the project, explained to Breaking Israel News. “Experts on the art and craftsmanship of the period advised us on the details of how it actually looked.  This level of accuracy in visualizing the details of the Temple is really unprecedented.

“It is an all-inclusive experience. During your visit to the Kotel, you can see exactly how the Temple was situated relative to the present location. At the same time, you can see the actual service, down to the tiniest details.”

Creating this project was no simple task. It entailed bringing together cutting edge technology with esoteric learning, history, and live actors. Matanel Libi, the CEO, began the project five years ago, driven by a desire to create a way for people to see the Temple in all its glory.

Though there were many projects that helped to envision the Temple – paintings, videos, three dimensional models, and actual dioramas – Libi wanted an approach that would bring all the separate parts together, allowing the participant to completely experience the entire Temple Mount as it was in the days of the Second Temple.

Eliyasaf Libi, the producer, brought together actors for a biblical epic performed on a computer-generated set. “It was a special project on many levels,” Libi told Breaking Israel News. “It was a big technical challenge, requiring a high degree of historical accuracy while working with virtual imaging.  It just so happened that the actors, who had to be technically proficient, were also very spiritual and a special collection of Jews.”

This strange blend of the old and the new was personified by Adam Propp, an Orthodox resident resident of Jerusalem who acted as a priest in the project. As a religious Jew and an actual descendant of the priestly class, he connected deeply to his role.

“I played a regular kohen (priest), and the acting affected me deeply,” he told Breaking Israel News, explaining how the acting was done on green screen, a cinematic technique in which the actors are filmed in front of a green backdrop and the set background is added in post-production.

“When we were doing the Temple service, we were really saying the service, including the blessings, as it was in the Temple. All of the actions were accurate, what the kohanim really did in the Temple. It wasn’t just reading lines. When we did the priestly blessing, we stood on stairs, like in the Temple, and called out the blessings. It was a powerful experience for me, and I hope it is for the people who watch.”

ISIS Claims Brutal Minnesota Stabber as “Son of Islamic State”
“Thou art my hiding-place; Thou wilt preserve me from the adversary; with songs of deliverance Thou wilt compass me about. Selah.” (Psalms 32:7)

The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for a brutal stabbing attack in a Minnesota mall on Saturday night which left eight injured and the attacker dead.

The attacker, a man of Somali descent, was a “soldier of the Islamic state,” announced ISIS’s Amaq news agency on Sunday, who had carried out the “operation” in response to the radical Islamic caliphate’s calls to “target the citizens of countries belonging to the crusader coalition.”

Wearing a private security uniform, the attacker entered Crossroads Mall in St. Cloud – home to one of Minnesota’s largest immigrant Muslim communities – and went on a stabbing rampage, injuring eight people, though none critically.

He was shot dead by an off-duty police officer at the scene, Jason Falconer. St. Cloud’s mayor and police chief called Falconer a hero for taking down the attacker as the suspect was “lunging at him with a knife.”

Interestingly, in contrast, in Israel, police and security officers who have neutralized Palestinian terrorists under similar circumstances have been accused of carrying out “extrajudicial executions”.

Media were clearly hesitant to label the attack as Islamist terror, saying only that he had “referenced Allah” during the attack and asked at least one victim if they were Muslim.

The FBI classified the attack as “a potential act of terrorism,” CNN reported, while St. Cloud Police Chief William Blair Anderson held back from connecting it to global terror, saying that the investigation was still trying to ascertain the motivations behind the attack.

Minnesota, and St. Cloud in particular, have been home to increased tensions over fears that ISIS is recruiting militants from the state’s Muslim immigrant population. In April of 2015, six young Somali-Minnesotan men were convicted of attempting to defect to Syria and join ISIS.

The attack in Minnesota occurred on the same day as a number of other incidents suspected to be terror-related. Earlier on Saturday, an explosive device went off in a New Jersey trash can on the route of a planned charity run. In the evening, an explosion tore through Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood, leaving 29 injured. Investigators discovered a homemade bomb in a dumpster and a second bomb a few blocks away.

On Monday morning, another bomb exploded in New Jersey while FBI sappers were attempting to disarm it. The bomb, along with five other devices, were found in a bag inside a trash can at the Elizabeth train station on Sunday night.

Two police officers were stabbed by a Palestinian attacker on Monday morning, near Herod’s Gate outside Jerusalem’s Old City. A 38-year-old  female officer and 45-year-old male officer, they have been evacuated to the Shaarei Tzedek and Haddassah Ein Karem hospitals respectively.
“An attacker arrived from the direction of the Damascus Gate when he spotted his two victims, he then approached them from the back and stabbed them several times from behind. The victims have been evacuated to nearby hospitals and the terrorist has been neutralized,” stated Galit Ziv, assistant spokesperson for the Jerusalem District Police.

Netanyahu Accuses Military Aid Deal Critics of "Ingratitude to Our Best Friend"
“Oh that ye would altogether hold your peace! and it would be your wisdom.” (Job 13:5)

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday morning opened his weekly Cabinet meeting telling his cabinet ministers that despite reports to the contrary, the $38 billion military aid package Israel received from the Obama Administration for the next 10 years was the highest amount that had ever been suggested by the Americans.
“I hear all kinds of background noise and disinformation about the agreement,” Netanyahu said, noting, “I would like to make it clear: We were never offered more. We were not offered more money, not even one dollar, and we were never offered special technologies. These are distortions and fabrications by interested parties; either they do not have the facts or they are distorting the facts, and they are, of course, showing ingratitude, and in my view this is the saddest thing of all, ingratitude to our greatest and best friend, the United States.”
The reports that suggested Israel stood to receive as much as $45 billion over ten years came from opponents of Netanyahu, most notably prime minister wannabe Moshe Ya’alon, whom Netanyahu had removed from the defense ministry, and former Prime Minister and Defense Minister Ehud Barak, who served as Netanyahu’s defense minister before Ya’alon. The reports also suggested that Netanyahu’s refusal to accept the Iran nuclear deal, and the fact that he dared go behind President Obama’s back to speak directly to Congress against the deal, is what cost Israel the additional funds.

Allah Has Promised Us White House, Kremlin: Palestinian Cleric
The Muslim call to prayer will be heard from atop the White House and the Kremlin, thundered a Palestinian cleric in an address to worshippers at Jerusalem’s al Aqsa mosque last week.

“We shall shout Allahu Akbar (God is Great in Arabic) from there,” the cleric, Abdallah Ayed, assured his audience. “Allah has promised both places to us!”

A video clip of his sermon was translated from the Arabic by MEMRI. Ayed, dressed in the traditional long white “thobe”, or robe worn by Muslim men, and waving his arms emphatically, continued with a prayer to Allah to enable Islamic extremists to vanquish both America and Russia.

Referring to the long-standing Islamic dream of conquering the entire globe, Ayed reminded worshippers, “Allah promised the Prophet Mohammed that Islam would rule the entire land.”

Israel Preparing for Fresh Round of Violence as Holidays Approach
By Michael Zeff September 19, 2016 , 8:30 am

Following the past weekend’s series of terrorist attacks, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called for an assessment of the security situation at a meeting on Sunday prior to the approaching Jewish High Holidays in October. Netanyahu issued orders and directives in preparation for another possible wave of terrorism.

The meeting was attended by Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat, Deputy Police Commissioner Zohar Dvir, Jerusalem District Police Commander Yoram Halevy, the deputy director of the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency), a representative of the IDF, and personnel from the National Security Council.

“We take it as a given now that we always experience a sharp rise in Palestinian violence when the Jewish High Holidays take place around September and October,” former Shin Bet Section Chief Menachem Landau told Tazpit Press Service (TPS). “It is not a new phenomenon, rather it has been the same for many years. As soon as Rosh Hashana [the Jewish New Year] looms, the levels of Palestinian violence against Jews begins to rise.”
Israeli authorities consider the last escalation in terrorist attacks across Israel to have begun in September of 2015 on the previous eve of the Jewish New Year, with the murder of Alexander Levlovich by five Palestinian stone-throwers from Sur Baher. The wave of terrorism that followed until about July, 2016 claimed the lives of 41 individuals, left hundreds more injured, and was dubbed ‘The Knife Intifada’ due the the large number of stabbing attacks that were perpetrated.

ICYMI: The Surprising Story Behind Trump’s Jewish Prayer Shawl
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz September 13, 2016 , 12:30 pm
“Thou shalt make thee twisted cords upon the four corners of thy covering, wherewith thou coverest thyself.” Deuteronomy 22:12 (The Israel Bible™)

image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/trump-tallit-grin.png
Donald Trump was given a tallit, a Jewish prayer shawl, at a Detroit Church. (Twitter)
When black pastor Wayne T. Jackson draped a Jewish prayer shawl on Donald Trump two weeks ago in his Detroit church, it created a political storm, as the controversial candidate challenged his critics by posing for a multi-cultural snapshot. Though clearly a tactic intended to attract black and Christian voters, the gesture was seen by some Jews as an egregious case of cultural appropriation.

As the emerging phenomenon of Christians adopting Jewish rituals grows, Jews are beginning to ask if this sign of a newfound closeness is a positive thing, or if it is even allowed by Jewish law.

Though the garb was new to Trump, the pastor and many other Christian worshippers in his Great Faith Ministries have adopted it, as well as a number of Jewish customs, including Saturday Sabbath and the Jewish holy days.

“This was not anything that is unusual for us,” Bishop Wayne Jackson told The Times of Israel. “You go to my church, and you’ll see a lot of people with them on. I have several of them. I have a Jewish lawyer who gave me his personal tallit. I have about five or ten of them for myself.”
image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/trump-tallit-cartoon.jpg
(Avi Steinberg/Facebook)
He explained his attachment to this particular mitzvah (Torah commandment). “Of course, the founder of faith is our messiah Jesus, and he wore a tallit,” Jackson said. “So this is a common thing in the gentile church or the Christian faith.”

Haaretz, a left-wing news site which usually does not side with Orthodox Judaism, took up the religious banner in order to criticize the Trump tallit, saying “it looked like the world’s weirdest Bar Mitzvah”.

“This is a totally absurd distortion of the meaning of an important Jewish ritual object, which is used by Jews for prayer all over the world,” said Rabbi Ron Kronish, founder and senior advisor for the Interreligious Coordinating Council in Israel, Haaretz reported.

American-born Rabbi Seth Farber said Trump’s donning of the prayer shawl was a pure political move which cheapened the act. “When any religion’s holy objects are mobilized for political purposes – that makes me very uncomfortable,” he told Haaretz.

Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg, named by Newsweek and The Daily Beast as one of ten “rabbis to watch,” and one of the top 50 most influential women rabbis, tweeted that Trump’s wearing a tallit was “the worst kind of appropriation”.

More and more Jewish customs are being adopted by many Christians, and it clearly makes some Jews uncomfortable. But for those who welcome this reconciliation, the question becomes whether or not it is permitted according to strict Jewish law. Is this a sanctification of God’s name or is it a desecration?

Rabbi Daniel Kohn, an Israel-based ultra-Orthodox rabbi who is an expert in halachic (Jewish law) questions, cited the Rambam, the foremost halachic authority of the 12th century, whose rulings are still used as the basis for much of Jewish law. The Ramban’s teaching on this subject may surprise many Orthodox Jews.

image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/433-BIN-Subscribe-BiblicalProphecy-600WIDE.jpg
“According to the Rambam, it is certainly permissible for non-Jews to perform this mitzvah, as well as any other mitzvah Jews are required to perform today,” Rabbi Kohn told Breaking Israel News. “He writes that it is commendable, and even divinely rewarded.”

Indeed, there are many Christians who have adopted the mitzvah of tzitzit, the fringes that are the essential aspect of the tallit, as a meaningful part of their prayer and daily lives.

Ken Rank, founder of United 2 Restore, an organization aimed at “bringing Judah (the Jews) and Ephraim (found mainly within Christianity) together”, finds the tallit adds a new dimension to his prayer.

“It is like a tent you can hide and be alone with God under it when you are praying,” Rank said. He admitted that there were some aspects of his approach to the mitzvah that did not adhere to Jewish law.

Like many Christians who wear the daily fringes, he wears them attached to his belt, tucked away, out of sight, because of the impression it would make on more mainstream Christians. “We are still feeling our way through this, learning and growing as we go,” he explained.

A Christian woman from North Florida who wears the fringes is shy about her observance. “Really, we are just learning like children, all of us. It is popular on Christian television to see preachers wearing one, and explaining what the fringes mean, how the Jews have a commandment to wear the fringes,” she told Breaking Israel News.

Though she has a collection of prayer shawls, she doesn’t wear them in public because she is fearful of negative reactions from Jews. “I have come to expect judgment and negativity, or awkwardness from Jews. It kind of outweighs the positive and it’s hard for me to appreciate the goodness sometimes,” she said.

David Nekrutman, Executive Director of the Center for Jewish-Christian Understanding and Cooperation, told Breaking Israel News that Jews should be understanding and even welcoming regarding the practice.

“Jews should see Christians using certain Jewish religious objects as way for them to be in touch with the roots of their faith and reminding them be more Biblically centered in their walk with the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,” he said.

Christian Volunteers Harvest Grapes in Samaria in Fulfillment of Jeremiah 31:4
By Anav Silverman September 18, 2016 , 7:30 am
“Again shalt thou plant vineyards upon the mountains of Shomron; the planters shall plant, and shall have the use thereof.” Jeremiah 31:4 (The Israel Bible™)
HaYovel volunteers from the US and other countries in the world work in the vineyards of Shiloh in Samaria. (Hillel Maeir/TPS)
In the vineyards of Shiloh, Ofra, Psagot and Har Bracha, a group of about 100 Christian volunteers from the USA, Canada, and other parts of the world, were on hand to assist Israeli farmers with the grape harvest this week. The group was part of HaYovel, a U.S. based non-profit that recruits volunteers to help independent Israeli farmers.

Paul Docherty, a 58-year-old construction worker from Seattle, Washington told Tazpit Press Service (TPS) that this was his fourth volunteer mission. “I love coming out here to the vineyards of Shiloh to prune the grapes and help out the farmers living here,” he said.

Docherty, like all the volunteers, are spending about three weeks in Israel and cover the costs of the trip on their own.

“Seeing the gratitude of the farmers, and connecting with the settlers, is something I look forward to each year,” noted Docherty. “I read the Bible, and just being able to visit Shiloh is a special experience in itself.

“I’m not such a bad pruner either,” he added.

Indeed, the HaYovel grape harvesters are serious workers. According to Caleb Waller, the volunteers harvest on average about 20 tons of grapes a day.

HaYovel was founded by Tommy and Sherri Waller, who have been bringing volunteer groups to Israel since founding the organization in 2005. The Wallers have 11 children, all of whom are active in HaYovel in a variety of capacities, from harvesting and field logistics to PR and lecture presentations about Israel and their organization’s work.
“Our mission is to help Israeli farmers anyway we can. We show them that they are not alone,” Tommy Waller told TPS. The 55-year-old grandfather was raised in a Southern Baptist home in Tennessee, where he and wife raised their family, homeschooling their children. Waller, who worked for Fed Ex for 13 years, left the corporate world and moved his family to an Amish community where they ran a successful organic family farm. Today they draw on their vast agricultural experience to benefit Israeli vineyards and farms.

“Life has been a spiritual journey,” he explained. “Some people might call it radical.”

Waller made his first trip to Israel in 2004 and met an Israeli farmer, Nir Lavie, in Har Bracha. Lavie quoted the Biblical prophet Jeremiah, “Again you will plant vineyards on the hills of Samaria,” and Waller was swept away.

“It felt like I was touching the words of the Bible for the first time,” said Waller.

“I wanted to help Nir out and asked him how we could help – he told me he needed workers and a year later HaYovel was born.”

Headquartered in Har Bracha, HaYovel has the backing of the community rabbi, Rabbi Eliezer Melamed, although not all farmers in Judea and Samaria accept the help of the Christian volunteers.

Waller emphasizes that they are not missionaries. “This isn’t about converting, but showing our respect and standing with the Jewish people in their biblical heartland. We’ve had thousands of volunteers from all over the world come as well as delegations of Congressmen and senators. They see a different kind of reality in Judea and Samaria – a peaceful one,” he said.

The volunteers tend to agree. In the Shiloh vineyards, one can hear them singing as they work against the backdrop of the rocky Samarian mountains.  “We’re excited to be here,” said Paul Docherty’s sister, Jane. “I knew I wanted to do this when I heard Caleb Waller and his brother, come to speak to our congregation. We’re participating in history.”

For Shiloh vineyard owner, Ira Rappaport, the volunteers provide a vital service. “I’ve never seen anyone handpick grapes as fast they do. Their work is amazing,” he told TPS.

For First Time, Iron Dome Takes Down Syrian Missiles in Golan Heights
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz September 17, 2016 , 8:30 pm
“And beyond the Jordan at Yericho eastward, they assigned Bezer in the wilderness in the table-land out of the tribe of Reuven, and Ramoth in Gilead out of the tribe of Gad, and Golan in Bashan out of the tribe of Menashe.”( Joshua 20:6)

The Iron Dome Missile Defense system stopped two projectiles fired from Syria into the Golan Heights on Saturday afternoon. The first rocket was fired around 4 pm, with the second following about 90 minutes later. This marks the first time the system has been used in the Golan against Syrian fire. The IDF made a statement explaining that the projectiles were destroyed in the air with no resulting damage or injuries.

According to the IDF, the projectiles were errant fire, spillover from fighting in Syria.

This past week has seen increasing tensions in the north of Israel with eight cases of Syrian mortars crossing over into Israel. Israel retaliated with air strikes and on Tuesday, military forces belonging to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime fired two surface-to-air missiles at Israeli jets, claiming a direct hit on one of the jets. Israel denied this claim, saying no IAF planes were hit.

Bomb Explodes in Manhattan, Injuring 29; Second Bomb Found Blocks Away
Explosion Rips Through Manhattan Street; Bombs Found in Dumpsters
By Abra Forman September 18, 2016 , 10:30 am
“And after the earthquake a fire; but Hashem was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice.” I Kings 19:12 (The Israel Bible™)
In what authorities believe to be a deliberate attack against New Yorkers, a large explosion tore through a crowded street in the Manhattan neighborhood of Chelsea on Saturday night, leaving 29 injured and putting New York on high alert.

The blast was caused by a homemade bomb placed in a sidewalk dumpster on West 23rd Street, said the authorities. A second explosive device was discovered four blocks away and removed.

The second device was made up of a pressure cooker with wires attached to a cell phone. It is similar in makeup to the bombs used in the deadly Boston Marathon explosion of 2013, in which three were killed and 264 injured, many seriously. Those attacks were carried out by two Chechen brothers acting in the name of radical Islam.

Though New York mayor Bill de Blasio called the explosion an “intentional act”, he also said that there was “no evidence” of any link to terror and did not refer to a bomb.

He said investigations were ongoing and it was too early to determine the motivations behind the “incident.”
But the nature of the attack left investigators baffled.

“We don’t understand the target or the significance of it,” said an official speaking on condition of anonymity, the New York Times reported. “It’s by a pile of Dumpsters on a random sidewalk.”

The explosion occurred around 8:30pm in the affluent Chelsea neighborhood. Hundreds ran in panic from the scene, and nearly 30 people were injured, most lightly, by shrapnel from the explosion.

Injures were “significant, but none of the injured are likely to die,” said New York police commissioner James O’Neill.

Police say they have no current suspects and are not questioning anyone in connection to the bombs.

The bombing came the same day as another garbage can explosion in neighboring New Jersey. The three pipe bombs were placed along the route of a Marine Corps charity run in Seaside Park. Authorities believe they were timed to go off as the athletes passed the garbage can.

However, a hiccup in the registration process led to a late start to the race, and no one was near the site of the explosion when the bomb went off.

Six Terror Attacks in 48 Hours Mark Renewal of Arab Violence After Relative Calm
“And if it will make no peace with thee, but will make war against thee, then thou shalt besiege it.” (Deuteronomy 20:12)
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz September 18, 2016 , 11:30 am
“And if it will make no peace with thee, but will make war against thee, then thou shalt besiege it.” Deuteronomy 20:12 (The Israel Bible™)

[UPDATED] Six terror attack in two days have Israeli security authorities concerned that nearly one year after it began, this recent wave of terror is far from over.

Following the Muslim afternoon prayers on Friday, a Palestinian man ran at an IDF Border Policeman by the Damascus Gate of Jerusalem’s Old City, yelling “Allahu Akhbar” (‘God is great’ in Arabic) while wielding a knife in each hand. The IDF troops opened fire, killing the attacker. The terrorist was found to have a third knife in his possession.

The Israel Police Spokesperson’s Unit said that “the terrorist was a Jordanian resident, who was entering the Old City of Jerusalem via Damascus Gate. The Israel Border Police identified the suspect, and carried out the proper protocols. The terrorist quickly approached the officers with his hand raised and clutching a knife. The officers acted professionally, and identified him as an attacker, whereby they neutralized him.”

On Friday afternoon, a bus driver was lightly wounded when  rocks and glass bottles full of paint were thrown at his vehicle on the highway between Jerusalem and the Ma’ale Adumim settlement. The police are still searching for the assailants.

Also on Friday afternoon, a Palestinian man and a Palestinian woman attempted to carry out a ramming attack with a pickup truck at the Elias Junction, outside the entrance to Kiryat Arba, adjacent to Hebron. The truck was being aimed at a bus-stop when  IDF troops at the scene identified the attack and opened fire. The male terrorist was killed. The woman was injured and is being treated for her injuries. No Israelis were injured but three teens who were in the path of the oncoming truck were treated for shock.
Maan News Agency, a Palestinian news service, identified the male assailants as Firas Khdour from Bani Naim near Hebron. The female was his fiancee Raghd Abdullah Khdour, whose sister was killed in an attempted vehicular attack at the same intersection a few months ago.

A soldier was lightly wounded on Friday in a stabbing attack at the Gilbert Checkpoint in Hebron. The terrorist was shot and killed by security forces.

On Saturday morning, a Palestinian man stabbed an IDF soldier the Nahal Brigade’s 50th Battalion near the Tel Rumeida neighborhood in Hebron. The Palestinian was shot and killed by the IDF troops at the scene.
In response to the weekend attacks, an additional battalion was deployed Saturday night in the Hebron area.

In a sixth incident, an IDF soldier was stabbed by a terrorist early Sunday morning in the city of Efrat. At around 2:00am, local security detail detected a breach in the city’s security fence near the Zayit neighborhood. Army and security forces searched the entire neighborhood for the infiltrator.

A few hours into the search, the terrorist jumped out from behind some bushes and stabbed an IDF soldier near the armpit, injuring him moderately. The terrorist was shot immediately. Both the victim, a 30-year-old officer, and the attacker, identified as Baha a-Din Muhammad Khalil, were transferred to the Hadasseh Ein Kerem hospital in Jerusalem for treatment.

Over the past year, 35 Israelis and four foreigners have been killed in attacks by Palestinians. Over 200 Palestinians have been killed. The IDF and security establishment say that most were killed while carrying out attacks.

An anonymous IDF official told the Times of Israel, “The motivation and inspiration to carry out attacks against Israelis remains strong. That’s why the IDF is strengthening its operational and intelligence efforts to stabilize the situation on the ground and deter these acts of terror.”

Where are We?
By Jim Fletcher September 13, 2016 , 8:00 am
I noticed this week that as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was visiting foreign dignitaries in Europe, one in the receiving line put his hands behind his back as Netanyahu made his way down the line, shaking hands. Bibi simply gave a slight shrug and moved on.

This same week, Australia’s foreign minister warmly invited Netanyahu to be the first Israeli premier to visit her country. The visit is scheduled for early next year.

Only a couple years ago, Israel seemed dangerously close to being totally isolated internationally. Many, including myself, felt that the famous prophecies describing this very reality were very close.

That is a lesson that we shouldn’t look too far out, but “let the prophecies come to us.”

Still, there are other interesting developments taking place.

It is now being reported that Moscow has invited both the Israelis and Palestinians to sit down for talks. No date is set, but it would present a fascinating turn of history if this plays out. Remember, one of the clever aspects of Jimmy Carter’s Camp David talks with Egypt and Israel involved prying the Arab world away from its client-state status with the Soviet Union. The Russians had worked for decades to oppose the West in the Middle East, and two disastrous wars paved the way for the Arabs to look elsewhere.
We were the elsewhere.

Now, however, with the deliberate strategy of Barack Obama to bolster his Muslim friends, particularly the Muslim Brotherhood, the Russians have seen an opportunity once again. They are back to their old role as an opponent of the U.S. in the Middle East. We have Obama to thank for that.

It is here I should say that it is my view he is himself a totalitarian in the Marxist tradition. Whether he is actually a Muslim is debatable, but the stone cold fact is, he helps jihadists and hinders freedom. He is doing it on purpose.

This has created a very dangerous vacuum in the Middle East, and look for the Russians to exploit it far more than their current involvement in Syria.

Just today, there is an amazing interview in the Times of Israel with neocon Norman Podhoretz, who has raised the possibility that Iran and Israel will engage each other in a nuclear war in the future.

This of course is not based on his view of eschatology, but geopolitics and the catastrophe Obama has brought on all of us.

However, I think it’s interesting to note that the Zechariah prophecies are tinged with reality in light of such stories in the media.

Keep in mind, too, the Russians are working closely with Iran, particularly in their missile defense systems and anti-aircraft systems. This is designed specifically to blunt any Israeli attack.

John Kerry has just met with his Russian counterpart in Geneva, to discuss each country’s operations in Syria, but no breakthroughs in cooperation occurred.

Too, there are reports of closer cooperation between Turkey and Russia, leading some to speculate that Gog-Magog is about to break out. We must remember, though, that Turkey’s Erdogan in notoriously difficult to deal with, and follows his own drumbeat. It is a mistake to assume that what exists today will exist tomorrow. Tomorrow might see a deep freeze in Russian-Turkish relations.

All in all, current geopolitics is volatile and astonishing to watch. Let us resolve to “let the prophecies come to us,” without too much speculation on our part.

Rabbis Declare King of Togo a Fraud and Idol Worshiper, Ending Plans for Massive Gathering
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz September 16, 2016 , 9:41 am
Rabbis Declare King of Togo a Fraud and Idol Worshiper, Ending Plans for Massive Gathering
“They have seen vanity and lying divination that say: Hashem saith; and Hashem hath not sent them yet they hope that the word would be confirmed!”
(Ezekiel 13:6)
Francois Ayi, claiming to be the King of Togo, was recently proclaimed by Rabbi Daniel Assur, the rabbi overseeing his conversion, to be a fraud, and his conversion process has been cancelled. This revelation ends the plan to bring hundreds of African kings to Israel for the upcoming holiday of Sukkot, as a gesture of spiritual connection to the God of Israel.

King Francois Ayi, claiming to be the King of Togo in exile, came to Israel as part of his desire to become Jewish. He met with ministers from the Israeli government as well as major rabbinic figures, including Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky. He recently announced his plan to bring hundreds of African kings to the Kotel in Jerusalem during the upcoming holiday of Sukkoth in order to sing out the Jewish prayer, “Shema Yisrael”.
When King Ayi first approached Rabbi Assur, the rabbi consulted with other major rabbis, Rabbi Shmuel Auerbach and Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky, to decide if and how to proceed. The rabbis gave their blessing to proceed with the conversion process.
Rabbi David Assur, a prominent rabbi and the king’s strongest proponent, publicly declared last week that the King’s professed desire to convert to Judaism was a total sham. Rabbi Assur is very active in education, including newly religious and helping non-Jews to convert. As such, he was put in charge of Francois Ayi’s conversion process and was in close personal contact with him over several months.
“He was with me for two months. I was willing to help him, as long as he did what I told him,what he agreed to and signed on to, as long as he followed the Torah and mitzvoth (commandments)” said Rabbi Assur to Kikar Shabbat, a Hebrew language Orthodox news service. “Little by little, I began to notice that he wasn’t adhering to these things. I saw that he was using his cell-phone on Shabbat to make announcements. But even worse than that, I saw in the media that he was taking part in ceremonies that were nothing less than idol worship. It is impossible to include foreign Gods into Judaism. It is either one or the other, but not both.”

The rabbi also began to see deeper problems. Francois thought he was the messiah and had convinced others to believe this as well. “ It is impossible to continue to work with this man if he declares that he is the Messiah,” said Rabbi Asur. “His intention was to crown himself in Jerusalem.

Rabbi Assur confronted Ayi about these claims.
“He said that God told him to say these things. I was shocked and asked him when he spoke to God. He began to speak as if he was a prophet,” Rabbi Assur said.

Shurat HaDin: Obama Secretly Transferred $1.7 Billion to Iran to Keep It Out of Terror Victims’ Reach
Shurat HaDin: Obama Secretly Transferred
$1.7 Billion to Iran to Keep It Out of Terror Victims’ Reach
Shurat HaDin-Israel Law Center, representing American the families of terror victims who have won US court judgments against the government of Iran for its support of Palestinian terrorist attacks in Israel, on Tuesday released a letter it sent US Congress members alleging that the Obama Administration kept secret the details of the $1.7 billion in cash payments to Tehran in January 2016 in order to evade efforts by their clients to recover those funds to satisfy outstanding court awards.

In the past, American terror victims have been successful in seizing Iranian bank accounts when those had been located.

The letter, sent by attorneys Nitsana Darshan-Leitner of Tel Aviv and Robert Tolchin of New York, recalls that on January 17, 2016, President Obama announced the settlement of a legal dispute between the United States and Iran over $400 million held by the US in a Foreign Military Sales (“FMS”) program account since 1979. The Obama Administration agreed to pay the $400 million it finally conceded it owed Iran, plus payment of an additional $1.3 million in interest on that amount
Then, “in recent weeks, the $1.7 billion which was secretly paid out in cash has come under severe scrutiny because the timing and circumstances of the payments appear to confirm the Iranian claim that the White House agreed to pay the money as ransom to Tehran for the release of American hostages.”

Iran Threatens to Shoot Down US Jets Over Persian Gulf in Latest  Escalation
Iran Threatens to Shoot Down US Military Jets in Latest Provocation
By Abra Forman September 13, 2016 , 1:30 pm
“That sendeth ambassadors by the sea, even in vessels of papyrus upon the waters! Go, ye swift messengers, to a nation tall and of glossy skin, to a people terrible from their beginning onward; a nation that is sturdy and treadeth down, whose land the rivers divide!” Isaiah 18:2 (The Israel Bible™)
image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/poseidon.jpg

In the latest in a string of provocations by the Iranian military, Iran threatened to shoot down two US Navy surveillance jets flying near Iranian territory in the Persian Gulf on Saturday, Fox News reported.
The incident took place on September 10. In a reconnaissance mission, a Navy P-8 Poseidon with a crew of nine and an EP-3 Eries with a crew of 24 were flying about 13 miles off the coast of Iran in the Strait of Hormuz, the scene of a recent altercation between the Iranian and American navies.
During the flight, the Iranian military contacted the jets and threatened to shoot them down if they did not change course, though they were over international waters, military officials told Fox.
Iran’s territorial waters extend 12 miles into the sea, as dictated by international maritime law. The American aircraft, while close, were not inside Iranian territory.
The planes ignored the warning and continued in their flight path. Iran did not pursue.
image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/123-LIBI-GeneralNavy-600WIDE.jpg
“We wanted to test the Iranian reaction,” one US official told Fox News. “It’s one thing to tell someone to get off your lawn, but we weren’t on their lawn.”
The US military classified Iran’s behavior as “unprofessional”, though not “unsafe” as, according to intelligence, Iran did not have missile launchers in the area.
“Anytime you threaten to shoot someone down, it’s not considered professional,” the official said.
Iran’s aggression follows a pattern of recent provocations against American military in the Gulf. Last month, four Iranian warships harassed a US Navy destroyer in the Strait of Hormuz, chasing the ship out of international waters.
In another incident in the Persian Gulf, a US Navy patrol vessel was forced to fire warning shots at a small Iranian craft which charged head-on at the American vessel after refusing to heed warnings by radio and flare.
The Iranian boat came within 200 yards of the US Navy vessel, forcing it to change course to avoid collision.

Taoism, Buddhism, Jainism, and More: Eastern Religious Leaders Arrive in Jerusalem
By Michael Zeff September 13, 2016 , 7:30 am
“As far as the east is from the west, so far hath He removed our transgressions from us.” Psalms 103:12 (The Israel Bible™)
Over 20 religious leaders from east Asia arrived in Israel Monday for a four-day summit in Jerusalem. Participants came from countries such as China, South Korea, India, and Japan, representing spiritual traditions of Taoism, Buddhism, Shintoism, Jainism, Sikhism and Zoroastrianism. Throughout the upcoming week, they will come face to face with Arab and Israeli religious leaders of Judaism, Islam and Christianity.
“It is time to expand the Israel-Asia dialogue from only diplomatic and economic spheres to religion, spirituality and faith,” summit coordinator Simona Halperin told Tazpit Press Service (TPS). “This is a first meeting in history between the religious leaders of Judaism and those of the eastern faiths.”
The summit was a joint project between the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA), the American Jewish Committee and the World Council of Religious Leaders (WCRL). Notable guests included the president of the Buddhist Association of China, Xuecheng, Swami Avdeshanand Giri, spiritual leader of millions of Indian Hindus, and Bawa Jain, Secretary-General of the WCRL.
President Reuven Rivlin greeted summit participants.
“Welcome to Jerusalem, the holy city to the religions of the sons of Abraham,” Rivlin told the guests. “Your arrival is a very special event, for many years the interaction between our religions hardly even existed.
“This is no longer the situation, as your visit today shows,” Rivlin said.
image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/433-BIN-Subscribe-BiblicalProphecy-600WIDE.jpg
Xuecheng and Swami Giri also addressed the summit, saying religious leaders should take a leading role towards solving worldwide social and environmental challenges.
“I’m very happy to be here,” said the Swami. “We have a saying in our colloquial tongue: ‘When you have dialogues, then the wisdom dawns and knowledge comes.’ Dialogue imparts clarity.”
Xuecheng expressed his hope to make lasting friendships among religious leaders in Israel. “Only if we make true friends we can really set the goal of mutual respect and understanding. the Chinese religions are working very hard to call out other religions to help in the construction of a peaceful world,” he said.
According to Halperin, during the four days of the summit the religious leaders will meet with rabbis from all Jewish streams, as well as with Muslim, Druze and Christian leaders. The group will tour holy sites and discuss current events including global warming, the environment, the status of religion in contemporary society, the role of religion in peacemaking and more.
“Our spiritual worlds are very close to each other in that they are not missionary religions which makes them very open and tolerant,” Rabbi Daniel Sperber, a professor of Talmud at Bar-Ilan University and Orthodox rabbi.  “I feel a unity and camaraderie between our peoples, more so than with the western world and Christianity.”

Senator Lindsey Graham Blocking Historic Israel-US Defense Deal
The ten-year, billion-dollar military defense deal between the US and Israel, which US Ambassador Dan Shapiro said on Sunday would be signed very soon, is being held up by Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), the Washington Post reported.
Israeli and American officials have been negotiating the next Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for months, eventually settling on a decade-long deal which the US says would increase Israel’s military aid package from $3.1 billion to $3.3 billion. US officials have called it “the largest single pledge of military assistance to any country in US history.”
However, while complete, the deal has yet to be signed and sealed, though senior Israeli official Brig. Gen. (res.) Yaakov Nagel traveled to Washington in July for the last round of talks before finalization.
Now, the Washington Post has revealed that one of the hold-ups is among Israel’s strongest supporters in government: Republican Senator Lindsey Graham.
According to the Post, Graham, who heads the Senate appropriations committee overseeing the foreign affairs budget, is angered by Congress’s exclusion from the negotiations and believes that the legislature should not stand by and accept whatever the White House hands them.
“I’m offended that the administration would try to take over the appropriations process. If they don’t like what I’m doing, they can veto the bill,” Graham told the Post. “We can’t have the executive branch dictating what the legislative branch will do for a decade based on an agreement we are not a party to.”
image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/439-LibiHangOnSupport.jpg
Graham, who traveled to Israel in March to discuss the MOU negotiations, marked up a bill increasing aid to Israel to $3.4 billion, more than the deal appropriates. In April, he spearheaded a letter to President Barack Obama asking him to approve a larger aid package to Israel, which 83 of 100 US senators signed.
After the Obama administration told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about Graham’s demand, Netanyahu phoned the senator directly to tell him that Israel was prepared to accept the deal as it stood. Graham had a colorful response.
“The Israeli prime minister told me the administration is refusing to sign the MOU until I agree to change my appropriation markup back to $3.1 billion,” Graham told the Post. “I said, ‘Tell the administration to go F themselves.’ ”
He said that he challenged Netanyahu to say Israel didn’t need the extra aid.

“I asked the prime minister, ‘If you don’t need this money, I’ll gladly change it,’ ” Graham said. “He said, ‘No, you know I can’t say we don’t need it, because the threats are real.’ ”

Hungarian Neo-Nazis Vandalize Holocaust ‘Living Memorial’
Anti-Semitism Rears its Head in Eastern Europe as Hungarian Holocaust Memorial Vandalized by Neo-Nazis
By JNI Media September 12, 2016 , 7:30 am
“Let the lying lips be dumb, which speak arrogantly against the righteous, with pride and contempt.” Psalms 31:19 (The Israel Bible™)

The Living Memorial, a monument in Budapest’s Liberty Square, was vandalized over the weekend, after a call by the neo-Nazi website Kuruc.info to destroy it, the website Hungarian Free Press reported Sunday. The Living Memorial was erected back in 2014 in protest against the monument to the German occupation erected by the government, which deflects Hungary’s responsibility for the Holocaust and pins it solely on the Germans.
An estimated 600,000 Hungarian Jews perished in the Holocaust.

For more than two years, the Living Memorial has served as a site for regular talks, lectures, discussion groups, musical performances and commemorations.
One Alitea Guzmán wrote on Kuruc.info: “I promise that one night, in the beginning of September, I will walk by the Living Memorial and I will pack up four or five kilograms of  the display, which legally is considered to be garbage, into a strong bag. And putting that into my car, I will take it to where it belongs. Naturally, I won’t dump it into the Danube, because that is already very polluted.”
image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/47-SupportBIN-600WIDE.jpg
Now, as promise, hundreds of photographs which were on display at the site have been torn up and other memorabilia items which had been added to the Living Memorial by survivors and descendants of survivors have been destroyed or stolen.
The Living Memorial group issued a statement saying, “With the exception of a few smaller incidents, respect towards the victims of the Holocaust always protected the memorial from the worst attacks. But yesterday something happened, which until now nobody dared to commit.”
According to the Hungarian Free Press, the Living Memorial group filed a police report immediately after the attack on the monument. The activists noted that Liberty Square is well-equipped with CCTV cameras, so police should be able to identify the perpetrators. But they also revealed that they “do not expect any meaningful response from the state.”

Ivanka Trump Misattributes Ancient Jewish Proverb to Emma Watson

The Surprising Story Behind Trump’s Jewish Prayer Shawl
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz September 13, 2016 , 12:30 pm
“Thou shalt make thee twisted cords upon the four corners of thy covering, wherewith thou coverest thyself.” Deuteronomy 22:12 (The Israel Bible™)
image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/trump-tallit-grin.png
Donald Trump was given a tallit, a Jewish prayer shawl, at a Detroit Church. (Twitter)
When black pastor Wayne T. Jackson draped a Jewish prayer shawl on Donald Trump two weeks ago in his Detroit church, it created a political storm, as the controversial candidate challenged his critics by posing for a multi-cultural snapshot. Though clearly a tactic intended to attract black and Christian voters, the gesture was seen by some Jews as an egregious case of cultural appropriation.

As the emerging phenomenon of Christians adopting Jewish rituals grows, Jews are beginning to ask if this sign of a newfound closeness is a positive thing, or if it is even allowed by Jewish law.

Though the garb was new to Trump, the pastor and many other Christian worshippers in his Great Faith Ministries have adopted it, as well as a number of Jewish customs, including Saturday Sabbath and the Jewish holy days.

“This was not anything that is unusual for us,” Bishop Wayne Jackson told The Times of Israel. “You go to my church, and you’ll see a lot of people with them on. I have several of them. I have a Jewish lawyer who gave me his personal tallit. I have about five or ten of them for myself.”

(Avi Steinberg/Facebook)
He explained his attachment to this particular mitzvah (Torah commandment). “Of course, the founder of faith is our messiah Jesus, and he wore a tallit,” Jackson said. “So this is a common thing in the gentile church or the Christian faith.”

Haaretz, a left-wing news site which usually does not side with Orthodox Judaism, took up the religious banner in order to criticize the Trump tallit, saying “it looked like the world’s weirdest Bar Mitzvah”.

“This is a totally absurd distortion of the meaning of an important Jewish ritual object, which is used by Jews for prayer all over the world,” said Rabbi Ron Kronish, founder and senior advisor for the Interreligious Coordinating Council in Israel, Haaretz reported.

American-born Rabbi Seth Farber said Trump’s donning of the prayer shawl was a pure political move which cheapened the act. “When any religion’s holy objects are mobilized for political purposes – that makes me very uncomfortable,” he told Haaretz.

Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg, named by Newsweek and The Daily Beast as one of ten “rabbis to watch,” and one of the top 50 most influential women rabbis, tweeted that Trump’s wearing a tallit was “the worst kind of appropriation”.

More and more Jewish customs are being adopted by many Christians, and it clearly makes some Jews uncomfortable. But for those who welcome this reconciliation, the question becomes whether or not it is permitted according to strict Jewish law. Is this a sanctification of God’s name or is it a desecration?

Rabbi Daniel Kohn, an Israel-based ultra-Orthodox rabbi who is an expert in halachic (Jewish law) questions, cited the Rambam, the foremost halachic authority of the 12th century, whose rulings are still used as the basis for much of Jewish law. The Ramban’s teaching on this subject may surprise many Orthodox Jews.

“According to the Rambam, it is certainly permissible for non-Jews to perform this mitzvah, as well as any other mitzvah Jews are required to perform today,” Rabbi Kohn told Breaking Israel News. “He writes that it is commendable, and even divinely rewarded.”

Indeed, there are many Christians who have adopted the mitzvah of tzitzit, the fringes that are the essential aspect of the tallit, as a meaningful part of their prayer and daily lives.

Ken Rank, founder of United 2 Restore, an organization aimed at “bringing Judah (the Jews) and Ephraim (found mainly within Christianity) together”, finds the tallit adds a new dimension to his prayer.

“It is like a tent you can hide and be alone with God under it when you are praying,” Rank said. He admitted that there were some aspects of his approach to the mitzvah that did not adhere to Jewish law.

Like many Christians who wear the daily fringes, he wears them attached to his belt, tucked away, out of sight, because of the impression it would make on more mainstream Christians. “We are still feeling our way through this, learning and growing as we go,” he explained.

A Christian woman from North Florida who wears the fringes is shy about her observance. “Really, we are just learning like children, all of us. It is popular on Christian television to see preachers wearing one, and explaining what the fringes mean, how the Jews have a commandment to wear the fringes,” she told Breaking Israel News.

Though she has a collection of prayer shawls, she doesn’t wear them in public because she is fearful of negative reactions from Jews. “I have come to expect judgment and negativity, or awkwardness from Jews. It kind of outweighs the positive and it’s hard for me to appreciate the goodness sometimes,” she said.

David Nekrutman, Executive Director of the Center for Jewish-Christian Understanding and Cooperation, told Breaking Israel News that Jews should be understanding and even welcoming regarding the practice.

“Jews should see Christians using certain Jewish religious objects as way for them to be in touch with the roots of their faith and reminding them be more Biblically centered in their walk with the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,” he said.

Ivanka Trump Misattributes Ancient Jewish Proverb to Emma Watson
“Son of man put forth a riddle and speak a parable unto the house of Yisrael.” (Ezekiel 17:2)
Ivanka Trump experienced a rare social media gaffe when fans realized that an inspirational quote she had posted to her Instagram account on Friday was not by actress Emma Watson, as the post claimed, but an ancient Jewish sage known as Hillel the Elder, JTA reported.
“If not me, who? If not now, when?” asked the post, attributing the quote to Emma Watson. Ivanka, who is the daughter of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, tagged Watson’s Instagram handle in her caption as well.
image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/emma-watson-2.png
Emma Watson (Facebook)
Watson, best known for her role as Hermione in the Harry Potter movie series, did use the quote in a 2014 speech at the United Nations, but she is not the originator of the famous Jewish proverb, which appears in the Ethics of the Fathers (1:4) and is attributed to the first century BCE Jewish sage Hillel the Elder.
“If I am not for myself, then who will be for me?” reads Hillel’s ancient saying. “But if I am only for myself, who am I? If not now, when?”
Rabbi Hillel, who lived in Jerusalem during the time of King Herod, is one of the most famous and renowned scholars in Jewish history. His deep understanding of the Torah and love of mankind made him one of the most respected sages in his own time. According to tradition, after settling a religious question which proved his superior Torah scholarship, the heads of the Sanhedrin voluntarily stepped down to give Rabbi Hillel the position.
image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/46-Subscribe-Generic-600WIDE.jpg
His religious rulings shaped the development of Judaism’s Oral Law (Talmud) and his impact on current Jewish law is immeasurable.
The sage was so influential that several of his sayings became well-known outside of the Jewish world. His famous question, quoted by Watson and Trump, is one of his best-known maxims.
He is also credited with authoring the Golden Rule, teaching that the essence of the Bible is the principle of reciprocity: “That which is hateful to you, do not do to your fellow.”
Ivanka Trump, despite being Jewish, having undergone an Orthodox conversion in 2009, was apparently not familiar with Rabbi Hillel’s axiom.
Social media users quickly responded to Ivanka’s mistake. JTA compiled several tweets aimed at the fashion mogul’s lack of Jewish knowledge.

Assad Caught Using Chemical Weapons, Crossing Obama’s Red Line Yet Again
“... their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet and their eyes shall consume away in their sockets and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.” (Zechariah 14:12)
 On Thursday, Syrian President Bashar Assad’s office denied that his forces used chlorine gas in an attack in Aleppo earlier in the week. The Syrian Civil Defence, a rescue workers’ organization, and the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights both said the Syrian government used a helicopter to drop two barrel bombs loaded with gas on residents in the Sukari neighborhood in eastern Aleppo. 80 people were reported to have been injured by the gas, though no deaths were reported.
In a statement published by the official SANA state news agency, the Syrian government claimed, “The real criminal in all cases in which gases were used was armed terrorist groups who carry out the instructions of their masters in order to defame the achievements of the Syrian Arab Army.”
On Wednesday, the director-general of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), Ahmet Uzumcus reacted to the Aleppo incident, coming short of confirming the accusations against the Syrian forces.
“Such allegations are taken very seriously. The use of chemical weapons by anyone, anywhere and under any circumstances is unacceptable,” said Uzumcus.

 Controversial actor and director Mel Gibson allegedly said that “Jewish people” stole an early copy of his 2004 movie, “The Passion of the Christ,” and used it against him before its release.

U.S. television and radio personality Glenn Beck said last Friday Gibson made the remarks in August, while the two men were having a discussion after a screening of Gibson’s new movie, “Hacksaw Ridge.”

According to Beck, Gibson said, “They [the Jews] actually went in and stole the movie.”

“The Passion of the Christ” sparked immense controversy upon its release. Many critics saw the movie, which garnered $612 million in ticket sales, as anti-Semitic, showing Jews in an unfavorable light and imposing responsibility on them for the crucifixion of Jesus.
Two years later, in 2006, Gibson again caused controversy after making anti-Semitic remarks to a Jewish police officer who had stopped him for driving while intoxicated.

As a result of his apparent anti-Semitism, Gibson’s reputation has suffered considerably in recent years.

In response to Beck’s statement, the former executive director of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), Abraham Foxman, disputed the claims of theft. Foxman said a Jewish religious adviser to “The Passion of the Christ” sent a version of the screenplay to the ADL, where a team of Jewish and Christian biblical scholars wrote a critique. According to Foxman, when Gibson received the critique, he “went berserk and threatened to sue us, so we returned the script.”
Hours after the story was published last Friday on Beck’s website, glennbeck.com, it was removed for revealing “details of an off-the-record conversation,” the Daily Beast reported on Thursday.

US Congress Hosts Conference Supporting Judea, Samaria Building
“Build ye houses, and dwell in them, and plant gardens, and eat the fruit of them.” (Jeremiah 29:5
The U.S. Congress hosted a conference on Wednesday in support of Israeli construction in Judea and Samaria and against the activities of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement on American college campuses.
The conference, attended by Jewish leaders and more than 100 lawmakers, including Congressmen Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Doug Lamborn (R-CO) and Erik Paulsen (R-MN), was organized by the Shomron Regional Council’s foreign relations office.
“BDS activities sabotage the only real example of peaceful coexistence in the Middle East. Employers in my area give work to thousands of people, both Jews and Arabs. BDS is not happy about Jews and Arabs working together,” said Samaria Regional Council head Yossi Dagan, The Algemeiner reported.
“Many would have liked to believe that anti-Semitism died after World War II, but unfortunately anti-Semitism is again rearing its ugly head in the form of BDS,” Lamborn said.
“Enough is enough,” Gohmert added. “We’re coming after your investments and what you’re doing, we’re going to hit you in your pocketbook until you stop this anti-Israel activity.”

Obama’s Greatest Achievement
By Caroline Glick
The time for complaining about President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran has passed. The time has come to overcome the damage enormous damage his signature foreign policy accomplishment has caused.
To understand why this is the case, it is important to understand the breadth and depth of Obama’s failure.
On August 4, during the course of a press conference, Obama gave his interim assessment of his nuclear agreement with Iran.
“It worked,” he insisted.
A year after the deal was signed, Obama argued, events have proven that he was right and the deal’s critics were wrong.
“You’ll recall that there were all these horror stories about how Iran was going to cheat and this wasn’t going to work and Iran was going to get $150 billion to finance terrorism and all these kinds of scenarios, and none of them have come to pass,” he proclaimed.
Obama then snidely swiped at the deal’s opponents saying that it would be “impressive” if the people who criticized the deal would own up to their mistakes and admit that it worked.
As it works out, everything that Obama said about the deal with Iran during his press conference was a lie.
Some of his lies became apparent within hours.

Will the KGB Kill Edward Snowden?
By Cliff Kincaid September 6, 2016 , 10:00 am
In a story headlined, “The New Snowden Movie is the Best PR He’ll Ever Get,” a young writer with no knowledge of Russian espionage operations quotes an ACLU lawyer as saying that the upcoming movie “Snowden” will paint the former NSA analyst living in Russia as “a hero who exposed the great injustices and overreach of the global surveillance state.” The film will therefore “have a huge effect on how the public sees Snowden,” he says.
But the film, scheduled for release on September 16, may be an attempt to salvage the reputations of both Edward Snowden and the filmmaker, Oliver Stone.
Edward Snowden is charged with espionage, and has been described by presidential candidate Donald J. Trump as a traitor who should be executed.
His disclosures of NSA surveillance techniques have assisted America’s enemies and adversaries, including the Islamic State and Vladimir Putin’s Russia. I wrote a book about the case, Blood on His Hands: The True Story of Edward Snowden, examining the setbacks for American foreign policy in the wake of Snowden’s theft of classified documents, and the U.S. being caught blind regarding Russian aggression and Islamic State expansion into Europe and America.
Two days before the film’s release, some theaters will feature a live question-and-answer period between Snowden and Stone following a special screening, with Snowden appearing live from Moscow. Stone is apparently hoping the film will restore his reputation as an avant-garde filmmaker whose previous release, “South of the Border,” was an embarrassing apology for a series of Latin American communists. It depicted Venezuela as heaven on earth and featured interviews with such despots as Hugo Chavez, Lula da Silva of Brazil and Raul Castro.

Prisons: Harvard for Radicals
By Dr. Denis MacEoin
“If they arrest me and put me in prison, I will carry on in prison. I will radicalise everyone in prison.”
One of the most troubling factors is the vulnerability of fresh converts to radicalisation. Starting out with minimal knowledge of their new faith, converts are easily lured into adopting strict forms of Islam, guided by existing radicals and by the extremist literature freely available in prisons.
“Political correctness in prisons is allowing extremism to flourish because guards are too afraid of confronting Muslims.” Extremists are “exploiting… staff fear of being labelled racist.” — The Telegraph, citing a report by Ian Acheson, a former British prison governor.
Said al-Shihri, after his release from Guantanamo in 2007, completed and passed the Saudi deradicalisation program, then became deputy leader of al-Qaeda in Yemen, orchestrating the bombing of the U.S. embassy there in 2008.
A Labour MP, Khalid Mahmood, pointed out that many of the mentors who are supposed to guide young people away from becoming radicalised are themselves non-violent radicals.
Great Britain is not short of irritating, scoundrelous, extremist figures. One thinks of today’s Labour party leader, the Trotskyite Jeremy Corbyn, a ‘friend’ of Hamas and Hizbullah; the anti-Semitic far-left former Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, recently suspended from the same party for anti-Jewish remarks; or George Galloway, who defended and lobbied for Saddam Hussein and called on the Iraqi leader to conquer Israel and retake Jerusalem. We have had more than our share of self-vaunting and holier-than-thou religious figures, too, notably the string of Muslim hate preachers who tour our universities and mosques, radicalising students and a host of other impressionable and easily-angered young people.
But for many of us, there is concern about the high rate of radicalisation engineered by Muslim extremists such as Anjem Choudary, who has tried to promote some of Britain’s most radical Islamist movements for some twenty years. His interview technique is to say things that are offensive, or at times seemingly demented, while remaining calm and apparently rational. He preaches hatred for democracy, loathing for British law, and a candid disrespect for all non-Muslims. In different circumstances, he would make a very able politician. In fact, he is a traitor to his country, a manipulator of the young and vulnerable, and is probably best revealed in his own words:

Iran’s Ongoing Military Buildup
By P. David Hornik
Under the thin guise of a “deal” that—at best—defers some aspects of its nuclear development for a decade, Iran—with Russia at its side—repeatedly laughs in Washington’s face as it steadily builds its military power.
Last week Iranian naval vessels subjected U.S. warships to what U.S. officials called “harassing maneuvers risking dangerous escalation.”
In an incident last January, Iran illegally detained a group of U.S. sailors—using the fact that their boats had veered into Iranian waters as a supposed justification.
In last week’s incidents, Iran couldn’t even use that excuse since the American ships were in international waters.
First, on Tuesday, Iranian ships buzzed the USS Nitze, a destroyer, in the Strait of Hormuz. They “ignored repeated radio, whistle and flare warnings from the Nitze and slowed their approach only when they were within 300 yards of the U.S. ship.”
And in last Wednesday’s even more serious incidents, ships of the IRGC (Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps) harassed two U.S. coastal patrol ships and a U.S. destroyer in the northern Persian Gulf.
Finally one of the coastal patrol ships, the Squall, had to fire three shots in the general direction of one of the IRGC ships to get it to stop chasing after the Stout, the destroyer.
As Stephen Bryen and Shoshana Bryen note, Iran is
[testing a] tactic called the “swarming boat” to destroy U.S. warships in the Persian Gulf.
The swarming boat attack is just what it sounds like: a number of fast boats equipped with missiles and torpedoes attack enemy ships from multiple angles to damage or destroy them as quickly as possible.
On Thursday the State Department hit back by calling the Iranian ships’ actions “unacceptable,” which should put fear in the hearts of the power-holders in Tehran.
And that was last week.
Further events this week might not have the drama of a precarious naval standoff, but are at least as significant.
On Monday it was reported, and visually recorded, that Iran had deployed its Russian-made S-300 missile-defense system at its Fordo uranium-enrichment site.

Turkish Foreign Minister Says Europe is Racist
By Burak Bekdil September 5, 2016 , 8:00 am
Originally published under the title “‘Liberal’ Turkey Claims Europe Is Racist.”

It’s not a bad joke; it’s a very bad joke. Turkey, where all variants of ethnic and religious xenophobia are a national pastime, is accusing the West of being racist.

Speaking after a spat with Austria and Sweden over news reports and tweets from those countries that accused Turkey of allowing sex with children under the age of 15, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu claimed that the behavior of European countries reflected the “racism, anti-Islamic and anti-Turkish (trend) in Europe.”

He is talking about the same Europe where the inhabitants of one of its biggest cities, London, recently elected a Muslim as its mayor. In Turkey, not even the smallest village of a few hundred inhabitants has a non-Muslim mayor.

In “racist” Austria, the police immediately arrested two suspects in connection with an attempt to set fire to a Turkish cultural center in the northern Austrian town of Wels — and at a time of rising tensions with Turkey. By contrast, Turkish law enforcement officials arrested five former gendarmerie intelligence officers just recently — nine years after the murder of Turkish-Armenian journalist Hrant Dink. These officers would probably never have been implicated if the two Islamist allies, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) and Fethullah Gulen, his staunchest political ally when Dink was assassinated, had not turned into each other’s worst nemesis in power-sharing fight in 2013.

Yeni Akit is an Islamist newspaper and one of Erdogan’s media darlings, a kind of Turkish Pravda in its fanatical support of the president. Its editors always find a seat in the elite group of journalists who accompany the president in his private jet traveling to foreign capitals.
Recently, one of Yeni Akit’s most prominent columnists, Abdurrahman Dilipak wrote:
There is no such religion as Christianity … In reality, Jesus Christ was a Muslim coming from Jewish tradition … The name of the religion revealed to Christ was Islam … Christianity is nothing more than a cultural adherence … Judaism is already a tradition that has imprisoned itself to its own race … [Jews’] fears are as big as their rage.

More Christians Striving to Live “Biblically-Oriented Lives”
By Rivkah Lambert Adler September 9, 2016 , 7:30 am
“And Hashem shall be King over all the earth; in that day shall Hashem be One and His name one.” Zechariah 14:9 (The Israel Bible™)
image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/rabbi-tallit-shawl-man.jpg
When Christians seek to live, as best they can, according to the Torah, how should Jewish people react? And does it have any implications for the ultimate redemption?
This inspiring new phenomenon is found today all over the globe. In Aqaba, Jordan, a community of approximately 70 non-Jews is striving to live a Bible-oriented life. Like thousands of Christians around the world, members of this community believe, based on DNA evidence and family name searches among other things, that they are the physical descendants of the residents of the Northern Kingdom who were exiled from Israel by the Assyrians in the 8th century BCE.
There is no official name for the movement of which the 70 people in Aqaba are part. They are variously called Ephraimites, Ten Tribers, Hebrew Roots, B’ney Yosef, or Torah-observant gentiles.
One thing is certain. They know that they are not Jews.
Valerie Parham, who has been living in Aqaba since 2005, told Breaking Israel News that the members of her community “love Israel, love the people, love keeping Torah as we can understand it. We personally feel much more affinity with Judaism than Christianity.” At the same time, converting to Judaism is not a goal.

North Korea Ready For Nuclear Attack After Successful ICBM and Nuke Tests
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz September 9, 2016 , 10:19 am
“But when the beacon began to arise up out of the city in a pillar of smoke, the Benjamites looked behind them, and, behold, the whole of the city went up in smoke to heaven.” (Judges 20:40)
North Korea’s most powerful nuclear test on Thursday night was accompanied by an announcement that they now now have the ability to mount a nuclear warhead on a ballistic missile. The ten megaton explosion, their fifth since 2006, was recorded as a 5.3 magnitude seismic event by monitors in the US, Japan, China and Europe. The nuclear test coincided with the 68th anniversary of the founding of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea).
The North Korean claim of being able to launch a nuclear attack seems accurate since they successfully conducted a test on a  medium-range ballistic missile on Monday.
“We’ve improved our ability to produce standardized and miniaturized nuclear warheads so we can produce as many as we want,” announced DKNA, North Korean national television. “This is our response to hostile powers, including the US. We sent out a message that if the enemies attack us, we can counterattack. The measures to protect our dignity and our right to exist from the US threat will continue.”
This test follows apparently ineffective UN Security Council sanctions after North Korea’s last test in January, which was half as strong as Thursday’s explosion.  South Korean  President Park Geun-hye called North Korean ruler Kim Jong Un‘s regime “fanatically reckless”, noting the test was in clear violation of the United Nations Security Council resolution
“The only thing that Kim Jong Un regime can gain from the nuclear tests is stronger sanctions from the international community and its isolation. Such provocation will eventually hasten its path to self-destruction,” she said in a statement.
U.S. President Barack Obama, aboard Air Force One on his way home from Laos, said the test would be met with “serious consequences”, though he did not go into detail about what those consequences might be. The President is conducting talks with Park and with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, the White House said.

NASA Launches Space Probe To Seek
The Origins Of Life
“... And out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had the likeness of a man.” (Ezekiel 1:4-5)
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz September 9, 2016 , 11:37 am
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) successfully launched the Atlas 5 rocket that will carry the satellite, Osiris-Rex (The Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, Security-Regolith Explorer), on its billion dollar seven year, 9 billion mile round-trip voyage to the asteroid Bennu, named after a bird in Egyptian mythology. Its mission: to seek out the origins of life on Earth. The 19-story tall rocket lifted off Thursday evening from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, reaching speeds of 22,000 MPH.
Some scientists believe life on Earth began when asteroids crashed down, providing the seeds for the origin of life. They believe that Bennu is covered with organic compounds dating back to the earliest days of the solar-system. A third of a mile wide and shaped like an acorn, the asteroid is orbiting the sun at roughly the same distance as Earth. It will take the space probe two years to arrive at its destination, after which it will spend two years exploring and mapping the surface of the asteroid. The probe will analyze the surface material of the asteroid, allowing scientists to choose a likely spot for the 11- foot robot arm probe to take a two-ounce sample, using nitrogen gas to stir up the contents. Osiris-Rex will return to orbit the Earth, releasing the sample to return to the planet by parachute to a Utah landing site in December 2020.

1,500-Year-Old Stable in Negev Desert Confirms Donkeys, Sheep, Goats Lived in Ancient Israel
“And I have oxen, and asses and flocks, and men-servants and maid-servants; and I have sent to tell my lord, that I may find favour in thy sight.” (Genesis 32:6)
An Israeli-American excavation team has uncovered a Byzantine Era stable in southern Israel, the Israel Antiquities Authority announced Thursday. Israeli archaeologists, visiting colleagues from DePaul University in Chicago and a group of Israeli teenagers said the findings left “no room for doubt” that donkeys, sheep and goats inhabited Israel in ancient times.”

British Jewish MP Under Police Protection Following Death Threat
By JNS September 9, 2016 , 8:00 am
“But now Hashem my God hath given me rest on every side; there is neither adversary, nor evil occurrence.” (I Kings 5:18)
A Jewish member of the British Parliament is receiving police protection after she received an anti-Semitic death threat on Facebook, the BBC reported.
Ruth Smeeth, 37, a member of the Labor Party, was repeatedly called a “Yid” and other offensive names as well as being accused of being a “CIA agent,” who should “swing from” the “gallows” for committing treason, in the July online post.
The threat was made after Smeeth called for Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn‘s resignation in June when he failed to intervene after an activist used anti-Semitism slurs accusing Smeeth of being part of a “media conspiracy” against Corbyn during an anti-Semitism inquiry meeting.
image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/46-Subscribe-Generic-600WIDE.jpg
Following the incident, Smeeth said she received 25,000 abusive comments, 20,000 of which were sent in a 12-hour period.
Smeeth said she holds Corbyn personally responsible for the threat.
The British Metropolitan Police Service Counter Terrorism Command has launched an investigation and a manhunt for the Facebook abuser.

Island Reappearing in Sea of Galilee Could Signal Beginning of Messianic Prophecy
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz September 7, 2016 , 12:30 pm
“He turned the sea into dry land; they went through the river on foot; there let us rejoice in Him!” Psalms 66:6 (The Israel Bible™)
image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/kinneret-island.jpg
Dry land has appeared in the Sea of Galilee, September 2016. (Aerial photo courtesy of Rahaf))
An island that has recently appeared in the middle of the Sea of Galilee (Kinneret) is a cause of ecologic alarm, but, more importantly, it is also a sign mentioned explicitly in the Talmud as presaging the coming of the Messiah from the House of David.
The sudden appearance of the island is not entirely unusual or unexpected. It frequently appears in particularly dry seasons when the level of the Sea of Galilee drops significantly, and to be sure, this year is exceptionally arid.
Since summer’s beginning, the water level in the Kinneret has gone down by 40 inches, a worrying 14.76 inches below the lowest red line, the Jewish Press reported.
The drying up of the Kinneret has clear Messianic implications. The Talmud (Sanhedrin 97a) discusses the signs that will appear just prior to the coming of “the Son of David” (the Messiah from the House of King David).
Rabbi Yehuda, a Talmudic sage, states that one of the signs presaging the Messiah will be that the Sea of Galilee and Gablan, the upper Jordan River in the Golan, will become desolate and destroyed (“khorban” in Hebrew).
This Talmudic prophecy is consistent with the verse in Isaiah, which uses the same word, khorban, to describe rivers drying up in the days of the Messiah.
And the waters shall fail from the sea, and the river shall be drained dry. Isaiah 19:5
The year began with the sea at the lowest level since 1926. As it stands today, 38 feet shy of being full, the Sea of Galilee has never before been so close to fulfilling this prophecy.

Serbian Airport Worker Announces Boarding for “Flight to Palestine”
By Abra Forman September 7, 2016 , 11:30 am
“For they that lead this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.” (Isaiah 9:16)
Israeli passengers waiting at Belgrade International Airport in Serbia to return home to Tel Aviv last month were shocked to hear an announcement that a “flight to Palestine” was ready to board at gate C3.
“Passengers for flight 816 with service to Palestine, please come to gate C3,” an airport employee announced over the PA system.
“She repeated this several times,” one of the passengers on the Air Serbia flight told Ynet.
The passenger, along with several other Israeli travelers, immediately approached the desk at the gate to complain and demand that the announcement be corrected. They were informed by the manager that the flight “was to Tel Aviv, not Israel.”
The Israelis told Serbia Air they would not board the plane until the mistake was rectified. “I told [the manager] that the flight was also not to ‘Palestine’ and requested they announce that the flight was going to Israel or even Tel Aviv,” said the passenger
“We told them they need to announce it three times, and told them that we would refuse to board the plane otherwise.”
After a discussion amongst the airline staff in Serbian, they agreed. An employee announced three times over the loudspeaker that the flight was going to Tel Aviv.
“The manager of the desk personally took us to gate C3 and apologized to us several times,” the passenger said, though he afterwards issued an official complaint to the Israeli Embassy in Serbia.
image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/144-JerusalemCovenant-600WIDE.jpg
Israeli Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Emanuel Nachshon said that the incident, which occurred on August 29, warranted an official investigation.
“It’s inconceivable that an airport employee with a microphone can try and change reality in such a defiant and false manner,” charged Nachson. “The Israeli Embassy in Serbia will deal with this issue, making it a high priority.”
When the Israeli ambassador to Serbia, Alona Fisher-Kamm, spoke to the CEO of Air Serbia, he was shocked, Fisher-Kamm reported. The CEO said that the incident was unprecedented and unacceptable.

Police: Jews Forbidden to Pray Without Permit Anywhere in Jerusalem’s Muslim Quarter
“For what great nation is there, that hath God so nigh unto them, as Hashem our God is whensoever we call upon Him?” (Deuteronomy 4:7)
In a hearing before the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court regarding young women who prayed in the Old City, a police representative declared that Jewish prayer is illegal without police permit in the Muslim Quarter and violates public order.
Over the past few weeks, young Jewish men and women have been arrested for praying near the gates of the Temple Mount, despite the fact that there is no law, nor “status quo” agreement that prohibits this practice. But on Tuesday, police stated for the first time that such behavior, namely Jews praying anywhere in the Muslim Quarter of the Old City, constitutes a crime.
According to the legal aid society Honenu, three young women were arrested on Sunday while praying in the vicinity of the Lions’ Gate. They were interrogated on suspicion of violating the public order and were released during the night, on condition that they appear in court Monday at a hearing of police request to restrict their entry into the Old City.

Israeli Universities Rank on International List
By Anav Silverman September 7, 2016 , 7:30 am
“For wisdom is a defence, even as money is a defence; but the excellency of knowledge is, that wisdom preserveth the life of him that hath it.” (Ecclesiastes 7:12)
Three Israeli universities have featured prominently on the 2016 QS World University Rankings list ranking more than 900 higher education institutions around the world.
Hebrew University of Jerusalem maintained its position as Israel’s top overall university, with an overall ranking of 148, while Tel Aviv University was named the country’s top research institution, with 97 academic citations per faculty member.
Haifa’s Technion continued a four-year slide, falling from number 183 in 2013 to 213 on this year’s list, as did Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, slipping to 320th place, down from 259 a year ago.
The QS World University Rankings, first compiled in 2004, rates the world’s best-performing higher education institutions, assessing some 4,000 higher education institutions and ranking more than 900.

Smartphones and Special Conservation Team Save Sea Turtles in Israel
By Staff Writer September 7, 2016 , 10:53 am
Every year, more than 100,000 endangered marine animals, including sharks and rays, are illegally fished in Israel.  Additionally, an average of four dolphins and 3,000 sea turtles are harmed annually as a result of fishing activity.  Coupled with years of overfishing, these same destructive fishing methods are also driving Israel’s local fish population to the verge of extinction.
While surfers, swimmers, fishermen and nature lovers are eager to file reports about hazards and illegal activity witnessed on Israeli beaches, there was no structured and effective way of collecting their reports and distributing the information to the proper authorities to take action in real-time.  That is, until last fall.
In an effort to reverse these trends, the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel (SPNI) developed Sea Watch, an app that empowers the public to improve the ecological state of Israel’s oceans and rivers by sending real-time reports on a variety of maritime environmental incidents and hazards straight to SPNI.
Since its launch in November, the free app has been downloaded over 5,000 times and has made a profound impact on Israel’s marine life, serving as a one-stop reporting hub for all issues relating to ocean pollution, the sale of endangered species, illegal fishing, injured mammal or sea turtles, abandoned netting, invasive species, and uncontrolled sewage.

For First Time Ever, Undeniable Evidence of Jewish Temple Discovered [PHOTOS]
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz September 6, 2016 , 12:30 pm
“And He said unto me: ‘Son of man this is the place of My throne and the place of the soles of My feet where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Yisrael for ever.’” Ezekiel 43:7 (The Israel Bible™)

An incredible new discovery at the Temple Mount has produced the first-ever physical and archaeological evidence that the Jewish Second Temple stood on the Mount 2,000 years ago, upsetting Arab claims, increasingly endorsed by the international community, that the Temples never existed.
Archaeologists from the Temple Mount Sifting Project, salvaging artifacts from Muslim destruction at the Temple complex, have completed the restoration of ornate floor tiles which experts believe likely decorated the courtyard of the Second Jewish Temple. The project provides visible and incontrovertible proof, backed up by ancient texts and historical context, of a Jewish Temple on the Mount.
In total, archaeological teams have uncovered approximately 600 colored stone floor tile segments, with more than 100 of them positively dated to the Herodian Second Temple period (37-4 BCE).

UN Lies Blame Israel for Incompetent Palestinian Governance
“My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go; my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live.”
(Job 27:6)
“A prominent element of Israel’s restrictions on Palestinian productive activities is the dual-use list, which prohibits the importation of civilian goods deemed by Israel as potentially having other, harmful uses.” (IDF)
If a visitor from outer space were to read the new report of the “United Nations Conference on Trade and Development  (UNCTAD) assistance to the Palestinian people: Developments in the economy of the Occupied Palestinian Territory” to be issued Tuesday, they would have walked away with an image of a nation of industrious, democratic, peace-loving people named the “Palestinians” who are intentionally and on a daily basis prevented from thriving and achieving the economic success they so richly deserve by a cruel and capricious Israeli occupation that sets out to torpedo every shred of goodness those peaceful folks manage to sustain.
This is only enhanced by the fact that this report comes from the principal organ of the UN General Assembly dealing with trade, investment, and development issues. The organization’s goals are to: “maximize the trade, investment and development opportunities of developing countries and assist them in their efforts to integrate into the world economy on an equitable basis.”
With that in mind, here is the opening paragraph of the Executive summary of the UNCTAD report, meaning the gist of whatever else comes below:

Israel to Accommodate Thousands of Arabs on Holiday of Abraham’s Sacrifice of Ishmael
“And he made them a feast, and they did eat and drink.” (Genesis 26:30)
In preparations for Eid al-Adha, marking the Quran’s version of the Torah story of the binding of Isaac, which this year falls on Sept. 11 (as well as on the 10th and the 12th, depending on local moon spotting), the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) Gen. Yoav Mordechai announced a long list of accommodations to be made by his unit to facilitate observing the festival in Judea and Samaria and in the Gaza Strip.
The accommodations below have all been approved by Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman (Yisrael Beiteinu), in the spirit of facilitating a life of religion and worship. This is particularly magnanimous, considering the fact that Eid al-Adha is a deceptive attempt to replace the story of Abraham’s binding of Isaac, which follows the story of the expulsion of the maidservant Hagar and her son Ishmael to the desert, with a revision which places Ishmael, father of the Arabs, on that altar on the Temple Mount.

Netanyahu, Russian Envoy Discuss Peace Process
“And as touching the matter which I and thou have spoken of, behold, Hashem is between me and thee for ever.” (I Samuel 20:23)

By: Ilana Messika
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met Monday with Mikhail Bogdanov, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s Special Envoy for the Middle East, to discuss a potential resumption of the Israeli-Palestinian Peace Process.
All parties have agreed to meet in Moscow on the heels of Putin’s repeated calls this year to take a leading role in Israeli-Palestinian talks. In March, Putin told the Arab League that Russia would fight for an independent Palestinian state, and last month told Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi that Moscow would like to host the next round of talks.
A spokesperson for Prime Minister Netanyahu said Israel is currently considering the Russian president’s proposal and the timing of a possible meeting in Russia. The pair also discussed the possibility of coordinating a post-summit meeting between the Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.
Prime Minister Netanyahu has stressed that he is prepared to meet with President Abbas directly and without preconditions as long as the latter was ready to do the same, but the Palestinian Authority has consistently set a series of conditions before returning to face-to-face talks with Israel.

Dutch Ex-PM: Netanyahu a War Criminal Who Should Be Sent to ICC [WATCH]
By Abra Forman September 6, 2016 , 11:30 am
“But mine enemies are strong in health; and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.” Psalms 38:20 (The Israel Bible™)
The former prime minister of the Netherlands said on Monday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is a war criminal and should be taken “right away to the international criminal court” at the Hague when he arrives in the country on Tuesday for a diplomatic visit.
“A war criminal will arrive here,” said Van Agt during an interview on public television, protesting the red-carpet reception which will greet Netanyahu.
He said that Israel’s activities in Judea and Samaria, including building, constitute war crimes.
“The occupation and building of settlements in occupied territory, is, according to the Rome Statute, which the international criminal court is based on… clearly a war crime,” he continued.

Van Agt, who served as prime minister from 1977-1982, is well-known for his anti-Israel views. In 2012, he said that the Jews should have had a state in Germany instead of Israel. According to his website, Van Agt has called Israel “a state founded on terrorism, massacres and the dispossession of another people from their land” which “engages in ethnic cleansing” and inflicts a “monstrous collective punishment” on the people of Gaza.

10 Families Evicted From Kiryat Arba Neighborhood Outside Hebron
1By Tazpit Press Service September 6, 2016 , 1:30 pm
“And Yehoshua blessed him; and he gave Chevron unto Kalev the son of Jephunneh for an inheritance.” Joshua 14:13 (The Israel Bible™)
By: Andrew Friedman
Border Police forces evicted 10 families and demolished their homes in the Mitzpe Avichai community in Kiryat Arba, just outside Hebron, on Tuesday. Residents reported that hundreds of soldiers deployed around Kiryat Arba to secure the demolitions.
The outpost, located on the outskirts of the town, is named for 17-year-old Avichai Levy, a resident of the nearby town of Bet Haggai who was murdered in a terror attack in 2005. The site has been demolished and rebuilt repeatedly. In June, the terrorist who murdered 13-year-old Hallel Ariel in her bed infiltrated the city via the neighborhood.
Right wing politicians, local authorities and neighborhood residents slammed the demolition, saying the move was a slap in the face to Ariel family and would “invite” the next murder of Kiryat Arba residents.
“Someone upstairs is apparently very confused,” said MK Bezalel Smotrich (Jewish Home). “The only answer to terror and murder is building and settlement. This is a mark of shame for a government that calls itself ‘nationalist’. I call on the defense minister to return a sense of balance to the Civil Administration. The absurd situation of demolitions from [former Defense Minister] Bugi [Yaalon]’s tenure cannot be allowed to continue.”
Kiryat Arba/Hebron Mayor Malachi Levinger added, “It is with great pain that we see our security forces removing these families from an area that belongs to Kiryat Arba/Hebron. We repeat our demand to build a new neighborhood here and I expect the defense minister to order a stop to the demolition and to approve construction here immediately.

ICYMI: Muslims May Be Celebrating on 9/11. But Not For the Reason You Think
In Strange Confluence of Events, Muslims Will Celebrate Sacrifice of Ishmael on 9/11 This Year
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz September 1, 2016 , 10:30 am
“And God said unto Avraham: ‘Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad, and because of thy bondwoman; in all that Sara saith unto thee, hearken unto her voice; for in Yitzchak shall seed be called to thee. And also of the son of the bondwoman will I make a nation, because he is thy seed.’” Genesis 21:12-13 (The Israel Bible™)

In a very strange set of coincidences, this September 11th may see Muslim Americans celebrating their holiest sacrificial festival while the rest of the country mourns one of the most horrific days in United States history.
Like all Muslim holidays, the festival of Eid al-Adha, known as Eid, is determined by the Muslim calendar, which varies greatly from year to year. The calendar is set in Mecca and based on the sighting of the new moon. If the moon is sighted on September first, then Eid, the Feast of the Sacrifice, will fall on the anniversary of one of America’s worst terror attacks.

2,996 people were killed and over 6,000 injured on September 11, 2001 when radical Muslim terrorists hijacked four commercial airliners and flew them into the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, destroying the Twin Towers completely and severely damaging the headquarters of the US Department of Defense.
This will be the first time since 9/11 that any Muslim holiday falls on the date, raising questions and concerns about how Muslims will celebrate on a day of mourning for all other Americans.
The holiday of Eid also happens to represent a serious conflict between Islam and Judeo-Christian Biblical tradition. It honors Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son, a well-established Biblical event, but revises Genesis, putting Ishmael in Isaac’s place.
The Koran mentions the sacrifice but does not specify which son was chosen. However, Muslim tradition claims it was Ishmael, the patriarch of Islam, that lay on the altar. This contradicts the Bible, which clearly states that Isaac, the patriarch of both Christianity and Judaism, was specified by God to be the sacrifice.

IAF Strikes Military Targets in Syria After Spillover Mortar Fire
By Abra Forman September 8, 2016 , 12:30 pm
“And beyond the Jordan at Yericho eastward, they assigned Bezer in the wilderness in the table-land out of the tribe of Reuven, and Ramoth in Gilead out of the tribe of Gad, and Golan in Bashan out of the tribe of Menashe.” Joshua 20:6 (The Israel Bible™)

The Israel Air Force hit several military targets in Syria after mortar shells breached the border and exploded in the northern Golan Heights on Wednesday, said the IDF.
Several mortars, apparently spillover fire from the ongoing Syrian civil conflict, were fired into Israel’s Golan on Wednesday afternoon. No injuries or damage were reported.
The IAF retaliated with airstrikes against rocket launchers located in the Syrian-occupied Golan.
The IDF holds the Syrian government responsible for any military encroachment at the border and routinely retaliates against Syrian military positions after incidents like these, which have become common since the bloody conflict between the Syrian regime and rebel forces began in 2011.
In a statement, the IDF emphasized that it “will not permit any attempt to threaten Israel’s sovereignty or the safety of its people.”
Last month after a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip landed in the southern Israeli city of Sderot, the IAF reacted immediately with a barrage of fire striking over 50 Hamas targets.

Netanyahu Decision to Halt Train Construction on Sabbath Causes Crisis
By Abra Forman September 4, 2016 , 10:30 am
“But the seventh day is a sabbath unto Hashem thy God, in it thou shalt not do any manner of work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy man-servant, nor thy maid-servant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates.” Exodus 20:9 (The Israel Bible™)

After Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered Sabbath construction work halted on Israel’s railroad lines, Israeli parliament descended into crisis, with political leaders accusing each other of flip-flopping, neglecting the public’s needs, and kowtowing to religious factions. Hundreds of thousands of commuters were affected as well as the stoppages led to major traffic jams on Sunday.
The issue of halting work on the Sabbath has been a contentious one. Work permits were issued for twenty Israel Railways projects this weekend. However, after pressure from Ultra-Orthodox political parties who demanded the cessation of all work on the grounds of Sabbath desecration, Netanyahu agreed to a compromise, ordering work on 17 of the 20 projects stopped over the Jewish holy day.

“Hamas Funds Terror in Judea and Samaria,” Gaza Businessman Admits

A businessman from Gaza with an entry permit to Israel and Judea and Samaria told the IDF under questioning on Wednesday that he had transferred USD 50,000 in cash from Hamas officials in Gaza to those in Hebron, the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) revealed on Thursday evening.
According to Hamas’s own media reports, the businessman in question, Bashir Muhammad Yunus Mustafa, was apprehended at the Erez Crossing between Israel and Gaza by the Israeli Crossing Authority and the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency).

Mustafa, a resident of the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, held a permanent permit issued by COGAT that allowed him to cross over freely from Gaza into Israel and to enter Judea and Samaria. According to COGAT, such permits are issued by the Israeli government for humanitarian reasons and in order to facilitate free trade between Gaza and the Palestinian territories.

What Does the Jewish Calendar Reveal About the Coming of the Messiah?
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz September 5, 2016 , 11:30 am
“And He changeth the times and the seasons; He removeth kings, and setteth up kings; He giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding.” Daniel 2:21 (The Israel Bible™)
A new movement marking the growing ways many Christians are moving closer to their Biblical roots is calling for Christians to switch from the Gregorian calendar to the Hebrew calendar. But though such a move could bring the two Abrahamic religions closer, it may be a source of further conflict. The current year is an expression of when the Messiah is expected to arrive, and when (or whether) he already came – questions the religions have been arguing over for millennia.
Pastor Mark Biltz is an outspoken advocate for Christians to change from the Gregorian calendar to the Hebrew calendar used by the Jews, and wrote a bestselling book on the subject. His El Shaddai Ministries has 40,000 followers and its website receives millions of hits from over 40 nations around the world every year. His original interest in the Hebrew calendar came from a fascination with the Biblical festivals, but this led to a difficulty with the Christian interpretation.
“Every month has special significance. The problem is most Christians are plucking at planting time and planting at plucking time because they don’t know what day it is,” Pastor Biltz told Breaking Israel News, giving a practical example of this confusion.

Building Collapse in Tel Aviv Injures 18 [VIDEO]
“And Yehuda said: ‘The strength of the bearers of burdens is decayed, and there is much rubbish; so that we are not able to build the wall.” (Nehemiah 4:4)

A parking structure under construction collapsed in Tel Aviv on Monday morning, injuring at least 18 people and trapping workers underneath the rubble, the Times of Israel reported.
A number of the building’s floors collapsed in on themselves at a construction site in Tel Aviv’s Ramat Hachayal neighborhood, and there is still a danger of further collapse.
Emergency and rescue services immediately rushed to the scene. “When I arrived I found numerous hurt individuals who were conscious and who extricated themselves from the area of the collapse under their own power,” said Moshe Levy, a volunteer EMT with United Hatzalah.

“Reports came in of other people who were unaccounted for and likely still trapped inside. Firefighters and rescue teams are working to extricate them.”

After Joseph's Tomb Incident, Jews Forbidden to Enter Areas Ruled by Arab Violence
By JNI Media September 5, 2016 , 9:30 am
“For thou shalt see the land afar off; but thou shalt not go thither into the land which I give B’nei Yisrael.” Deuteronomy 32:52 (The Israel Bible™)
image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Joshuas-Tomb.jpg
Joshua’s Tomb, located in Samaria. (Wikimedia Commons)
Israeli District Court last week ruled that Jews commit a crime when they enter without prior arrangement with security forces an area where their lives would be in danger due to Arab violence. The area in question, Joshua’s Tomb in Samaria, is in Area B where there are no restrictions on Jewish travel. On its face the ruling is tantamount to a NY City judge punishing a victim of violence for entering a dangerous neighborhood without first receiving police permission.
Judge Zahava Bustan of the district Court in Lod last Thursday rejected an appeal submitted by legal aid society Homenu attorney Hai Haber over the detention and removal of 13 Jews who wanted to pray at Joshua’s Tomb near the city of Ariel and were attacked by Arabs from the village of Kifl Haras, where the Jewish shrine is located.
Attorney Haber argued that the group, which had been punished by the court — they were ordered to stay out of Judea and Samaria for 60 days — did not commit any crime, since entry into the Arab village is legal to Jews. Kifil Haras is located in Area B, which Israeli citizens may enter at will, just as they are permitted to drive on sections of Route 60 which cuts through the Area B Arab town of Hawara, as well as on the road from Jerusalem to the Jewish community of Nokdim.

“I want to take this opportunity to reaffirm our absolute enduring commitment to the State of Israel and our friendship,” Foreign Minister Bishop told Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
In addition, Bishop extended an official invitation to Netanyahu to visit Australia. “The Australian public would warmly embrace you, welcome you, and we would look forward to the first visit of an Israeli prime minister ever to Australia,” she told the Israeli prime minister.

Israeli Police Thwart Car-Ramming Terror Attack, Kill Driver
By Michael Bachner September 5, 2016 , 8:30 am
“And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee whithersoever thou goest, and will bring thee back into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.” (Genesis 28:15)
Two Palestinians attempted to carry out a car-ramming attack against Israeli security forces early Monday, according to Jerusalem Police. There were no Israeli casualties, and one of the attackers was killed.
The incident occurred around 2 a.m. at the the Shuafat Refugee Camp in northern Jerusalem. Police said that a car driven by the Palestinians accelerated and tried to run over police and Border Police forces who had exited their base after completing their operational activities.
The forces responded by firing at the vehicle after the car ignored their warnings, said the police statement. One of the suspects was killed and the other was injured.

Israeli Space Industry Suffers Major Setback as Communications Satellite Explodes on Launch Pad [WATCH]
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz September 2, 2016 , 10:46 am
“But they that wait for Hashem shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall walk, and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31 (The Israel Bible™)

Amos COmmunications satellite explodes on launchpad (YouTube video capture)
The fledgling Israeli space program suffered a major setback on Thursday when the SpaceX Falcon-9 rocket, set to carry the Amos-6 communications satellite into orbit, exploded on the launch pad in Cape Canaveral, Florida two days before the scheduled launch.

No injuries were reported from the explosion at Launch Complex 40 at the Air Force station next door to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center being leased by SpaceX, though the blast reportedly shook buildings several miles away.

A SpaceX update several hours after the explosion said the occurred during fueling.
Had it been successful the launch would have been a milestone achievement for all concerned. It was the largest satellite ever built by Israel’s space program, and the heaviest payload ever launched into space by a SpaceX rocket. SpaceX is headed by South African entrepreneur, Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors.
This would have been the sixth Amos satellite sent into orbit by Spacecom, and the second Spacecom rocket that exploded before launch. They have conducted 25 successful launches since 2010. The company has six more launches planned until the end of the year.
The setback was enormous, as the satellite was valued at over $200 million, and was intended to remain in service for at least15 years, bringing fast internet to14 countries. Spacecom’s stock plummeted over 10 percent on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange within two hours of the explosion.

“As far as the Israeli communications satellite industry is concerned, this is a very severe blow which could place the future of the industry in doubt if it is not dragged out of the mud,” said Israel Space Agency chairman Isaac Ben-Israel in a statement to the press. “This is a blow and the next satellite, if Space Communications manages to overcome the crisis which it will face and decides to order another one, could be in another three years or so.”

The Amos-6 was built by state-owned Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI).

In October, Facebook and French satellite operator Eutelsat Communications announced they were joining forces with Israeli Spacecom to bring fast internet to southern Africa. The communications satellite was intended to be placed in geostationary orbit over the African continent as the first major step in this plan.

Hundreds of UN-Accredited NGOs Promoting Anti-Semitism, Terrorism
“A faithful witness will not lie; but a false witness breatheth forth lies.” (Proverbs 14:5)
Human Rights Voices, an organization monitoring the United Nations, on Wednesday published a report titled, “UN Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs): Inciting Hatred, Antisemitism and Violence from the World Stage,” reporting that an examination of the 6,150 non-governmental organizations which have been “invited to participate on a year-round basis in UN activities, and have thus been handed a coveted global megaphone,” it appears that, “both by design and gross negligence on the part of UN member states, the NGOs’ ranks include bigots, anti-Semites, and terrorist advocates who are now spreading hatred and inciting violence from the world stage.”
According to the report, “accredited non-governmental organizations have been allowed to flaunt the core of the UN mission by advocating terror and intolerance. At the same time, they have been permitted to draw closer to the world of international diplomacy and gain access to the international media platforms associated with it.”
“Most striking for an organization founded on the ashes of the Holocaust, the UN enables its accredited NGOs to play a central role in promoting modern anti-Semitism,” charges Human Rights Voices, noting that “although the preamble of the UN Charter promises the equal rights of nations large and small, UN-accredited NGOs foster the destruction of the UN member state of Israel.”

Are Nonstop Muslim Atrocities the “New Norm”? By Raymond Ibrahim
After all, what is the big deal?  Shouldn’t we be used to Muslims rampaging
and killing by now?
As hardly a few days pass without some Islamic terror attack in the West—recently and as of this writing an “Allahu Akbar” shouting Muslim man stabbed a Jew in France and an “Allahu Akbar” screaming Muslim woman ran over two policemen in Canada—the West risks becoming desensitized to and seeing Islamic violence as “just another part of life.”
The words and deeds of Western leaders are not helping.  After the Islamic terror attack in Nice, France, where 84 were killed, counterterrorism chief Patrick Calvar said: “Today, France is clearly the most threatened country.  The question about the threat is not to know ‘if’ but ‘when’ and ‘where’.” Prime Minister Manuel Valls declared that “Terrorism … is a threat that weighs heavily on France and will continue doing so for a long time.”
As if such resignation wasn’t bad enough, at the memorial event for the 84 Nice victims, Valls declared, “Times have changed and we should learn to live with terrorism.”

SIS’s Child Terrorists and their Palestinian Precedents
By P. David Hornik
For all that IS is reaching new depths of “all possible evil,” it should not be forgotten that the pioneers of various modes of terrorism in our time were, and remain, the Palestinians.
“There is no safety for honest men, but by believing all possible evil of evil men, and by acting with promptitude, decision, and steadiness on that belief.”
Those words, written in 1791 by Irish philosopher Edmund Burke, should be deeply internalized by anyone who wants to deal seriously with international affairs. In our present era of Islamic State and other Islamic terror groups, the phrase “all possible evil” seems to take on new meaning almost every day.
As in a chilling new video, first reported by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) and reported on by Fox News here, that shows IS “cubs”—child warriors, in this case as young as ten—executing five Kurdish fighters.
The video features scenes of beheadings and other carnage before zeroing-in on the five boys and their victims. One of the boys, identified as Abu al-Baraa al-Tunisi, warns: “The war against you has not started yet and the U.S., France, the U.K., Germany, and neither humans nor Jinn devils will avail you. Prepare you coffins, dig your graves, and await a fate similar to that of these men.”
The boys then shout “Allah Akbar” and shoot the five kneeling, red-suited men in the backs of their heads.

Israeli Arab Family Wants to Return to Israel After Joining ISIS
By JNS September 4, 2016 , 9:30 am
“So that I come back to my father’s house in peace, then shall Hashem be my God.” (Genesis 28:21)
An Israeli Arab family, who moved to Syria allegedly to join the Islamic State (ISIS), has fled to Turkey with the hope of returning to Israel, reported Channel 2 news on Aug. 31.
The family of five, originally from the mostly Muslim city of Sakhnin in northern Israel, joined IS over a year ago. The family traveled to Romania for a relative’s graduation ceremony, then told family they would continue to Turkey for a vacation. Days later, the family told relatives they were joining ISIS in Syria.

The mother’s father recently convinced them to return to Israel and made arrangements to meet in Turkey where he could work on their re-entry.
Israel continues to discover cases of Israeli Arab citizens attempting to join ISIS including two Israeli Arab men, who were indicted in July for plotting to join the terror group in Syria.

Secretary of State Kerry: Maybe Media Shouldn’t Cover Terrorism
“But they refused to attend and turned a stubborn shoulder and stopped their ears that they might not hear.” (Zechariah 7:11)
By JNS September 4, 2016 , 8:30 am
“But they refused to attend and turned a stubborn shoulder and stopped their ears that they might not hear.” Zechariah 7:11 (The Israel Bible™)

Secretary of State John Kerry (US Department of State)
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry implied on Monday that the world would be better served if the media did not report about terrorism as often.
“Perhaps the media would do us all a service if they didn’t cover it quite as much. People wouldn’t know what’s going on,” Kerry said to the press during a meeting in Bangladesh.
“No country is immune from terrorism. It’s easy to terrorize. Government and law enforcement have to be correct 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. But if you decide one day you’re going to be a terrorist and you’re willing to kill yourself, you can go out and kill some people,” said Kerry, who spoke about how the U.S. will help Bangladesh achieve greater prosperity by tackling issues such as establishing security and fighting for worker rights.
Kerry said terror groups such as the Islamic State attack culture and history, and only seek to divide. Fighting them requires a different kind of battle and “will take a generation or more to solve.

In Strange Confluence
of Events, Muslims Will Celebrate Sacrifice of Ishmael on 9/11 This Year
In Strange Confluence of Events, Muslims Will Celebrate Sacrifice of Ishmael on 9/11 This Year
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz September 1, 2016 , 10:30 am
“And God said unto Avraham: ‘Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad, and because of thy bondwoman; in all that Sara saith unto thee, hearken unto her voice; for in Yitzchak shall seed be called to thee. And also of the son of the bondwoman will I make a nation, because he is thy seed.’” Genesis 21:12-13 (The Israel Bible™)

In a very strange set of coincidences, this September 11th may see Muslim Americans celebrating their holiest sacrificial festival while the rest of the country mourns one of the most horrific days in United States history.

Like all Muslim holidays, the festival of Eid al-Adha, known as Eid, is determined by the Muslim calendar, which varies greatly from year to year. The calendar is set in Mecca and based on the sighting of the new moon. If the moon is sighted on September first, then Eid, the Feast of the Sacrifice, will fall on the anniversary of one of America’s worst terror attacks.
2,996 people were killed and over 6,000 injured on September 11, 2001 when radical Muslim terrorists hijacked four commercial airliners and flew them into the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, destroying the Twin Towers completely and severely damaging the headquarters of the US Department of Defense.

This will be the first time since 9/11 that any Muslim holiday falls on the date, raising questions and concerns about how Muslims will celebrate on a day of mourning for all other Americans.

The holiday of Eid also happens to represent a serious conflict between Islam and Judeo-Christian Biblical tradition. It honors Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son, a well-established Biblical event, but revises Genesis, putting Ishmael in Isaac’s place.

The Koran mentions the sacrifice but does not specify which son was chosen. However, Muslim tradition claims it was Ishmael, the patriarch of Islam, that lay on the altar. This contradicts the Bible, which clearly states that Isaac, the patriarch of both Christianity and Judaism, was specified by God to be the sacrifice.

And [God] said: ‘Take now thy son, thine only son, whom thou lovest, even Yitzchak, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt-offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.’ Genesis 22:2

In another significant difference in the narrative, Islam holds that the site of the altar was the Kaaba in Mecca, the holiest site in Islam and the destination for the hajj pilgrimage. According to Jewish tradition (and the Bible), the site of the sacrifice was Mount Moriah, which later became the location of the Temple Mount.

The unfortunate confluence of September 11th and a public Muslim celebration dredges up an uncomfortable and contentious topic. Celebrations in American-Arab communities in New Jersey on the actual day of the attack – in honor of the attack – were widely reported in the press, with eyewitness reports cited and prominent officials quoted.

image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/167-US%20states%20stand%20with%20israel%20bumper%20stickers.jpg

However, the reports were quickly quashed and the claim continues to hit a nerve. In December of last year, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump decried Muslim celebrations in the aftermath of the attacks in New York City. He was vilified in the press for perpetuating an Islamophobic urban myth.

It was also widely reported that Palestinians in East Jerusalem and other Arab cities in Israel celebrated the attacks. The Palestinian Authority (PA) claimed that Reuters videos of the celebrations were fakes, old footage use to sensationalize fictitious accounts. The PA even claimed the celebrations were staged by Israelis who either threatened or bribed Palestinians to take part. The videos were, in fact, found to be authentic recordings of these celebrations, with no Israeli complicity.

The PA also attempted to censure the broadcasts and other news reports. Ahmed Abdel Rahman, Yaaser Arafat’s Cabinet secretary, said the PA could not “guarantee the life” of an Associated Press cameraman if footage he filmed of post-9/11 celebrations in Nablus (Shechem) was broadcast.

Despite being carried out by Muslims, the attacks were largely condemned in the Muslim world, including by some leaders who were at war or were enemies of the US. Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, now dead, and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, both outspoken enemies of the US, joined in the condemnations.The notable exception was  Iraqi president Saddam Hussein, who said the attacks were “the American cowboys reaping the fruit of their crimes against humanity”.

The possibility of anti-Islamic reaction to celebrations of this year’s holiday is a source of concern in the Muslim community. The New York Times reported that some mosques which normally hold prayers outside on the holiday will be praying indoors this year. In the wake of an imam and his assistant being shot to death in Queens last week, New York City is arranging extra security for Islamic sites on the upcoming holiday.

In contrast, and perhaps in defiance, Masjid Al-Mamoor, also known as the Jamaica Muslim Center, will be holding one of the largest gatherings for the holiday in the New York area, with 20,000 Muslim men expected to attend the outdoor prayer service.

IDF Soldier Shot Guarding Biblical Patriarch’s Tomb
By Abra Forman September 1, 2016 , 11:30 am
“And the bones of Yosef, which Bnei Yisrael brought up out of Egypt, buried they in Shechem, in the parcel of ground which Jacob bought of the sons of Hamor the father of Shechem for a hundred pieces of money; and they became the inheritance of the children of Yosef.” Joshua 24:32 (The Israel Bible™)

An IDF soldier was shot and moderately wounded while standing guard over religious Jews praying at Joseph’s Tomb in the city of Nablus (Shechem) early Thursday morning. The soldier was taken to Beilinson Hospital and is listed in stable condition.
The troop  was shot near the entrance of the Balata refugee camp, located a few blocks from the tomb on the outskirts of the Palestinian-controlled city.
According to the army, the circumstances of the shooting attack are still under investigation.
Local Arabs harassed other soldiers guarding the area by rolling burning tires towards them. They also threw rocks and Molotov cocktails, the Times of Israel reported. The IDF troops responded with riot dispersal tactics, and the prayers of the Jewish worshippers were allowed to continue as planned.

Anti-BDS Activists Decry Lutherans’ “Obsession” With Israel
The Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA), the largest Lutheran denomination in the U.S., passed two Israel-related resolutions earlier this month at its triennial assembly in New Orleans, La. One resolution established an “investment screen” that will recommend where Lutherans should invest their money with regard to Israel and the Palestinians. The other urged a cutoff of U.S. aid to Israel unless Israel meets a series of conditions and calls for the immediate U.S. recognition of “the state of Palestine.”

US Secretly Agreed to Ease Restrictions of Nuclear Deal, Allow Iran to Keep Uranium, 
The United States and the rest of the P5+1 powers secretly agreed to allow Iran to evade some of the restrictions placed upon it by last year’s landmark nuclear deal so that the deadline for sanction lifting would be met on time, according to a new report by a Washington think tank.
The report, reviewed by Reuters and published Thursday by the Institute for Science and International Security, was co-authored by former UN weapons inspector David Albright. Albright said the report is based on information from several government officials involved in the negotiations.
“The exemptions or loopholes are happening in secret, and it appears that they favor Iran,” Albright said, reported Reuters.
The loopholes were approved by the joint commission overseeing implementation of the deal, comprised of the US and the five other world powers involved in last year’s high-stakes nuclear  negotiations – Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia.
Among the restrictions waived by the “secret” agreement were two that allowed Iran to keep more low-enriched uranium (LEU) than the deal permits.

Final Foe at End-of-Days is Scourge of Anti-Israel Jews: 200-Year-Old Messianic Text
Anti-Israel Leftist Jews Will Be the Enemy in Final Messianic Battle
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz August 31, 2016 , 12:30 pm
“And Hashem spoke unto Moshe: ‘Go, get thee down; for thy people, that thou broughtest up out of the land of Egypt, have dealt corruptly. They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them; they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed unto it, and said: This is thy god, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.’” Exodus 32:7-8 (The Israel Bible™)
According to a 200-year-old esoteric source, the final Messianic battle will be an all-out war against an unexpected threat: one from within the Nation of Israel itself. Called the erev rav, or “mixed multitude”, Israel failed to conquer this enemy in the desert and will face it again at the End of Days. Rabbi Pinchas Winston, a scholar who has studied the source in depth, identified this perennial enemy as existing today, arguing that the battle has already begun.
Rabbi Hillel Rivlin of Shklov, an 18th-century Torah scholar credited with reviving the Jewish community in Israel, compiled teachings about the Messiah in a seminal work called Kol Hator. Rabbi Rivlin described a process including two distinct, sequential Messiahs and the enemies they battle.
The general function of the two Messiahs, Messiah from the House of David and the Messiah from the House of Joseph, is to protect us against the three klipot (layers): Esau, Ishmael, and the erev rav. (Kol Hator)
The Biblical names are used as eternal archetypes. Most sources understand Ishmael to be Muslims, who self-identify as the descendants of Biblical Ishmael. Esau is usually interpreted as being Rome, or its cultural descendant, Western society.

Archaeological Evidence of the Kingdom
of David Now on Display in Jerusalem
“And the men of Israel and of Yehuda arose, and shouted, and pursued the Philistines, until thou comest to Gai, and to the gates of Ekron ...”
(I Samuel 17:52)
Archaeological Proof of David vs. Goliath Battle On Display in Jerusalem
By Tazpit Press Service August 31, 2016 , 9:30 am
“And the men of Israel and of Yehuda arose, and shouted, and pursued the Philistines, until thou comest to Gai, and to the gates of Ekron. And the wounded of the Philistines fell down by the way to Shaaraim, even unto Gath, and unto Ekron.” I Samuel 17:52 (The Israel Bible™)
Biblical archaeology was revolutionized several years ago when evidence of the existence of the alleged kingdom of David was brought to light in the form of a fortified Iron Age town excavated in the Elah Valley by Hebrew University Professor Yosef Garfinkel and Israeli Antiquities Authority (IAA) archaeologist Saar Ganor. The place was described by the Bible as the location of the battle between David and Goliath. The highlights of the findings of the Elah Valley excavations will be presented to the public for the first time at an exhibition scheduled to open at the Bible Lands Museum in Jerusalem on September 5.
“Archaeology cannot find a man and we did not find the remnants linked to King David himself,” Professor Garfinkel told Tazpit Press Service (TPS). “But what we did find is archaeological evidence of the social process of urbanization in Judea.”
According to Prof. Garfinkel, the evidence of urbanization fits in with what is described in the Bible as the establishment of the Kingdom of David, when small agrarian communities were replaced by fortified towns. “The chronology fits the Biblical narrative perfectly. Carbon tests performed on the olive pits found in Khirbet Qeiyafa show that the town was built at the end of the 11th century BCE,” Garfinkel explained to TPS.
Two phenomena particularly attracted the attention Garfinkel and Ganor of when they began excavations at the site of Khirbet Qeiyafa about ten years ago. Numerous iron stones were found and a wall of unusual form, with hollows in two places, enveloped the site.
The archaeologists only realized in the second year of their excavations that they had found a fortified town from the Iron Age that perfectly fit the description of the Biblical town of Shaarayim. The name in Hebrew means “two gates,” and the hollows in the modern wall, built on top of the ancient one, were precisely in the same place as the previous existence of two gates, which is quite a rarity for a relatively small town.

Tel Aviv is Now Capital of Israel, According to Czech Republic
“Thus saith Hashem: I return unto Tzion and will dwell in the midst of Yerushalayim; and Yerushalayim shall be called the city of truth; and the mountain of Hashem of hosts the holy mountain.” (Zechariah 8:3)
Tel Aviv is the new capital of Israel, replacing Jerusalem as the eternal heartbeat of the Jewish State – at least according to a new Czech Republic textbook, the Prague Daily Monitor reported Monday.
The change was made after local Palestinian parents saw that school atlases and textbooks used by their children rightfully listed Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Naturally angered, they petitioned the Palestinian ambassador to Prague, who then complained to the Czech Foreign Ministry and the Education Ministry.
The government quickly bowed to Palestinian pressure, releasing a statement assuring the public that the country “does not consider East Jerusalem a part of the State of Israel.”

Nigerian Clinton Foundation Donor Investigated for Hezbollah Ties
“Shall not the workers of iniquity know it, who eat up My people as they eat bread, and call not upon God?” (Psalms 53:5)
 Nigerian billionaire philanthropist Gilbert Chagoury, who has been a major donor of the Clinton Foundation, was denied entry to the U.S. last year due to suspected ties to the Lebanese terror group Hezbollah.
Chagoury, 70, has been friendly with former President Bill Clinton and his wife, current presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, since the 1990s, and has donated between $1 million and $5 million to the couple’s foundation, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Chagoury has been a close ally of former Nigerian dictator Gen. Sani Abacha and has tried to influence U.S. policy in the dictator’s favor. The State Department has also been investigating the billionaire, who has Lebanese roots, for his ties to Lebanon. He is currently on a no-fly list, in part because of his connection to Lebanese Christian politician and former Lebanese Army commander Michel Aoun, whose party had signed a memorandum of understanding with Hezbollah in 2006.

Brussels Airlines Brings Back Halva
After Backlash
“How sweet are Thy words unto my palate! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” (Psalms 119:103)
 Responding to pressure from Israel and Israeli customers, Brussels Airlines has reinstated supplying the Israeli Ahva brand halva on its flights.
Brussels Airlines had stopped serving Israeli-made halva on flights after a complaint was launched by a Palestinian activist last week. The Palestinian Solidarity Movement activist was traveling from Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion International Airport to Brussels when he noticed the dessert being served was made by the Ahva brand. He informed other activists about the product and they complained to the airline, which conceded to their request.
“The customer who came to us with the complaint brought to our attention that the aforementioned dessert is a controversial product. As a company that serves an international audience full of people from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures, it is our responsibility to present products that will be amicable to all, and therefore, we decided to change desserts,” Brussels Airlines said in a statement after the decision.

German Vice Chancellor After Giving Neo-Nazis the Finger: Should Have Given Two [WATCH]
Germany’s Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel caused a stir when he gave the middle finger to a group of far-right protesters heckling him in the northern town of Salzgitter earlier in the month – but he’s not sorry.
The incident occurred when Gabriel was accosted by a dozen neo-Nazis who began harassing him with verbal abuse, calling him a traitor and praising his father, who was a Nazi supporter. In response, the Vice Chancellor unambiguously raised his middle finger at the group.
When interviewed later on German television, Gabriel, who is Chancellor Angela Merkel’s second-in-command, said he had a single regret: not going further.
“I made only one mistake, I have not used both hands,” he said

Hamas, PLO Likely to Split October Municipal Elections: Experts
The Arab World Institute for Research and Development (AWRAD) last week released an online experts poll on the October 8 municipal elections, with results that reflect a balance between Hamas and the PLO/Fatah, with additional play for clan candidates and leftwing groups.
AWRAD presents itself as a pioneering research, consulting and development firm based in the Palestinian Authority. Its website claims AWRAD is one of the Arab region’s leading firms providing a full range of consulting and technical services for sustainable development and state building.

Sanhedrin Appoints High Priest in Preparation for Third Temple
A significant step was recently taken towards reinstating the Temple service when the nascent Sanhedrin selected Rabbi Baruch Kahane as the next Kohen Gadol (high priest). The selection was made as a precaution for Yom Kippur. If the political conditions should change, allowing the Jews access to the Temple Mount, they will be required by Torah law to bring the sacrifices. Rabbi Kahane is confident that if that should happen, Temple service could begin in less than one week.

How the First Letter in the Hebrew Alphabet Could Help Bring Redemption
A deeper look at the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet can reveal endless insights into how God created the world and man, showing how the Hebrew language is imbued with layers of meaning which have deep Biblical implications.
Like every language in the world, Hebrew consists of words made up of individual letters. However, what is unique about Hebrew is that each letter has its own individual meaning, its own numerical value and its shape is often made up of other Hebrew letters in order to create additional depths of understanding.

Study Bible, It’s Why We’re Here, Urges Netanyahu at Start of School Year
This year, students must put more emphasis on learning the Bible, which is the “basis for why we are here,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced at a cabinet meeting two days before the start of the new school year in Israel.
Bible-supported Zionism, must be at the root of a “revolution” in education brought about by the government, said the Israeli leader on Tuesday, the Jerusalem Post reported.
“Our objective is to carry out an education revolution,” he said. “This revolution will be based on two things: excellence and Zionism.”

No Peace Because Israel Builds Homes for Jews: UN Middle East Peace Envoy
UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Nickolay Mladenov told the Security Council in his regular briefing Monday that recommendations offered by the so-called Middle East Quartet, comprising the US, Russia, the EU and the UN, on the way forward in the peace process have been ignored by Israel, pointing to a surge in Israeli settlement-related announcements and continuing demolitions of illegal Arab construction in Area C, which is under full Israeli control. The Quartet’s recommendations include an end to Israel’s settlement policy and a halt to the PA’s incitement to violence.

Gene Wilder, Beloved Jewish Film Star, Dies at 83
“Even in laughter the heart acheth; and the end of mirth is heaviness.” (Proverbs 14:13)
Gene Wilder, one of America’s most beloved Jewish actors of the 20th century, passed away on Monday at the age of 83 from complications due to Alzheimer’s disease.
Perhaps best known for playing the title role in 1971’s “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory”, Wilder also shone in now-classic comedies such as “The Producers”, “Young Frankenstein” and “Blazing Saddles”, which were all collaborations with legendary Jewish producer and actor Mel Brooks.
Brooks, calling Wilder one of the “truly great talents of our time”, eulogized the actor in a Tweet.
Wilder was born Jerome Silberman in Wisconsin to Jewish parents and began acting as a teenager. He studied acting at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre in Bristol, England, and later at the Actors Studio.
He started his acting career on the stage before moving into film, going on to star in over 20 movies and television shows and gaining fame with major hits like “Willy Wonka”.
Part of a comic duo with actor Richard Pryor, Wilder acted in several movies with the comedian, including “Silver Streak” and “Stir Crazy”. The two were close friends.
In a less-known role, Wilder played Rabbi Avram Belinsky, a Polish rabbi traveling through the Wild West, in the 1979 film “Frisco Kid”.
Wilder identified as a cultural Jew, writing in a 2005 memoir, “I have no other religion. I feel very Jewish and I feel very grateful to be Jewish. But I don’t believe in God or anything to do with the Jewish religion.”

America’s Fate at the End of Days
“But Esav I hated and made his mountains a desolation and gave his heritage to the jackals of the wilderness.” Malachi 1:3 (The Israel Bible™)
image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/trump-light-1.jpg
Donald Trump (Breaking Israel News)
Donald Trump will be a factor in the End of Days in America by reflecting the rehabilitation of Biblical Esau, said a New Jersey rabbi earlier this month, calling the Republican presidential candidate “a Messiah-like figure”.
The rabbi’s lecture, which took place in Lakewood, New Jersey, begins with Esav (Esau), the twin brother of Jacob, who does not enjoy a sterling reputation in the Bible. Yet rabbinic scholar Rabbi Mendel Kessin suggests that, at the End of Days, Esav will be rehabilitated. Rabbi Kessin speaks often about the spiritual underpinnings of the events of the 21st century.
Rabbi Kessin connects Esav throughout history to Edom, Rome, Christianity, Western civilization and, ultimately, to the United States. According to Rabbi Kessin, America represents the good of Esav. At the End of Days, Rabbi Kessin contends that the sins of Esav will be removed and Esav will become God-fearing.

He further explains that, although Esav has traditionally been associated with oppressing, persecuting and afflicting the Jews, at the End of Days, he will undergo a fundamental change in his character.
Rather than harming Jews, Esav will turn toward serving the Jews, assisting them in doing God’s will in the form of mitzvot (Biblical commandments). As a result, Esav will be rehabilitated and will earn a place in the World to Come. Further, since Rabbi Kessin believes that spiritual tasks of Esav are being completed by the United States today, he sees the destiny of the United States at the End of Days as a positive one.
But it doesn’t end there. Rabbi Kessin further asserts that Donald Trump has a critical role to play in purifying the US. “What I believe is that the one who is going to switch from [Esav persecuting the Jews] to [Esav serving the Jews] is Donald Trump,” Rabbi Kessin claims. “He’s going to purify Edom.”

Iranian Navy Harasses US Navy
With Impunity
“But ships shall come from the coast of Kittim, and they shall afflict Asshur, and shall afflict Eber, and he also shall come to destruction.” (Numbers 24:24)
In three separate incidents this week, Iranian Naval vessels harassed US Navy ships in confrontations that could easily have escalated. On Wednesday, a US Navy vessel on patrol in the Persian Gulf fired three warning shots at an Iranian small craft that charged to within 200 yards.
Commander William Urban, a spokesman for the US Navy’s Fifth Fleet made a statement to the press saying that the USS Squall and the USS Tempest were participating in an exercise with a Kuwaiti patrol boat in the northern Persian Gulf. The three vessels were travelling in formation when they were approached by a Naser-class Iranian Revolutionary Guard Navy water craft at high speed. The USS Tempest fired flares as a warning made radio contact, but the Iranian vessel continued its approach.
The Iranian boat came at the USS Tempest head-on, and the US vessel was forced to change its course to avoid collision. The USS Squall fired the three warning shots from their 50-caliber gun into the water just ahead of the approaching Iranian craft, at which point the Iranians turned and left.
Earlier in the day, the Squall and Tempest encountered three other small Iranian boats that ran in front of them three times, coming as close as 600 yards. In this encounter, the Iranian vessels ignored warning flares and whistles used by the crew of the Tempest to warn them to change course.

This incident comes after another close encounter on Tuesday when four Iranian craft “harassed” a US destroyer near the Strait of Hormuz, according to US officials.
“Four Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps vessels harassed the guided missile destroyer USS Nitze (DDG 94) by conducting a high-speed intercept and closing within a short distance of Nitze despite repeated warnings as Nitze transited international waters in the vicinity of the Strait of Hormuz Aug. 23,” a defense official said.
The crew of the Nitze fired flares and sounded the ship’s horn to warn the small craft, but they continued to approach the ship from the side.

Argentinan High Schoolers Dress Up as Nazis, Attack Jewish Peers
“Be strong and of good courage, fear not, nor be affrighted at them; for Hashem thy God, He it is that doth go with thee; He will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.” (Deuteronomy 31:6)
Jewish high school students at a graduation party at a nightclub in Argentina were verbally and physically attacked by students from another school dressed in Nazi costumes, Israel Hayom learned Thursday.
The incident took place on Tuesday night at a nightclub in the tourist town of Bariloche, in Argentina’s Patagonia region. The attackers, from a German high school in the town of Lanus, near the capital Buenos Aires, had drawn Hitler mustaches on their faces and were wearing armbands with swastikas on them. They confronted several Jewish students from an ORT high school, hurling anti-Semitic obscenities at them. A fight broke out between the two sides, and the bouncers at the Cerebro de Bariloche nightclub removed everyone from the club.
Following the incident, the Bariloche Municipality asked that the company that organized the high school graduation trip prohibit the “Nazi” students from participating in any further events.

Silvia Fazio, the principal of the German high school in Lanus, said the students in question had been sent home and that they would be punished harshly.

Chinese Firm Drops $285 Million on Israel's SpaceCom Satellite Company
“Know this day, and lay it to thy heart, that Hashem, He is God in heaven above and upon the earth beneath; there is none else.” (Deuteronomy 4:39)
The Chinese telecommunications conglomerate Xinwei Telecom Technology Group is buying Israeli satellite operator SpaceCom for $285 million, representing the latest of several recent Chinese purchases of Israeli companies and technologies.
The purchase is pending the successful launch of Spacecom’s Amos-6 telecommunications satellite, which was built by Israel Aerospace Industries. It will launch aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket on Sept. 3, Space News reported.
Chinese companies invested about $500 million in Israeli companies last year, according to analysis by the Ettinger Report. Israel’s trade with China is $11 billion, which represents 10 percent of Israel’s overall trade balance and double its 2010 trade balance.
Israeli technologies of special interest to Chinese companies include agro-technology and irrigation. In 2015, China’s Bright Food acquired Israel’s dairy product maker Tnuva for $2 billion. In 2011, China’s National Chemical Corp. bought Israeli pesticides and crop protection company Adama for $2.4 billion.

King of Morocco Mohammed VI:
Anyone Who Believes Jihadists Will Find Virgins in Heaven is Insane
By Abra Forman August 28, 2016 , 11:30 am
“Woe unto them! for they have strayed from Me; Destruction unto them! for they have transgressed against Me; Shall I then redeem them seeing they have spoken lies against Me?” Hosea 7:13 (The Israel Bible™)
Muslim jihadists who kill in the name of Allah are heretics who are destined to dwell in hell for eternity, said the King of Morocco, Mohammed VI, on August 20.
In a televised speech translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), the Muslim king slammed Muslim terrorists, saying they are “led by ignorance” and in violation of the laws of jihad and shari’a.
“The terrorists who operate in the name of Islam are not Muslims. They have nothing to do with Islam, and jump on the bandwagon in order to justify their crimes and stupid acts. They are people who have been led astray, and they are destined to dwell in hell for all eternity,” he charged.
The monarch, who has ruled the Muslim country of Morocco for 17 years, continued on to say that terrorists fundamentally misunderstand the concept of jihad. “When was jihad ever about the killing of innocent people?” he asked.
“Allah said: ‘…do not transgress. Allah does not love the transgressors.’ Is it conceivable that Allah, the Forgiver, the Compassionate, would order a person to blow himself up or to kill innocent people?”
He added that suicide is prohibited in Islam, regardless of the reasons, and again quoted the commandments of Allah (Arabic for the name of God): “Allah said: ‘…Whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption upon the land – it is as if he had killed all of mankind.’”
Any Muslim who calls for such killing and aggression, accuses people of heresy unjustly, or interprets the Quran and other holy writings as a means to justify their own ends are “attributing lies to Allah and his messenger,” he declared, calling this “the true heresy.”
He touched on the growing crisis of Muslim extremism in Europe, accusing radicalists of “exploiting Muslim youth” by recruiting them for jihad under false understandings of the true meaning of Islam.
“Can anyone of sound mind believe that the reward for jihad could be some virgins in paradise?” he asked incredulously.

Obama Refused to Help Bring Down Ahmadinejad in 2009: New Book
By JNS August 28, 2016 , 7:30 am
“The way of a fool is straight in his own eyes; but he that is wise hearkeneth unto counsel.” Proverbs 12:15 (The Israel Bible™)
Barack Obama. (Breaking Israel News)
U.S. President Barack Obama decided not to support the Iranian opposition during the 2009 elections to protect secret negotiations he was holding with Tehran on its nuclear program, a recently published book alleges.
“The Iran Wars” by Jay Solomon of The Wall Street Journal, several sections of which were published by the Bloomberg news agency Wednesday, holds that Obama actively refrained from assisting the demonstrators. He ignored advisers who told him to support the opposition in Iran, even ordering the CIA to sever ties with opposition leader.
“The Agency has contingency plans for supporting democratic uprisings anywhere in the world. This includes providing dissidents with communications, money and in extreme cases even arms,” Solomon writes. “But in this case the White House ordered it to stand down.”
Demonstrations broke out in June 2009 after then-President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was declared the winner of elections that many in Iran felt were rigged. From the beginning, Obama and the White House downplayed the demonstrations’ importance, and when he finally did speak about them, he refrained from mentioning election fraud.

Ban the Burqa, Allow the Burkini
By Daniel Pipes
France has been seized by a silly hysteria over the burkini, prompting me to wonder when Europeans will get serious about their Islamist challenge. For starters, what is a burkini? The word (sometimes spelled burqini) combines the names of two opposite articles of female clothing: the burqa (an Islamic tent-like, full-body covering) and the bikini. Also known as a halal swimsuit, it modestly covers all but the face, hands and feet, consisting of a top and a bottom. It resembles a wetsuit with a head covering.
image: http://www.danielpipes.org/pics/new/large/3503.jpg
Which is which? A burkini and a wetsuit.
Aheda Zanetti of Ahiida Pty Ltd in Australia claims to have coined the portmanteau in 2003, calling it “smaller than a burka” while “two piece like a bikini.” The curious and sensational cross of two radically dissimilar articles of clothing along with the need it fit for active, pious Muslim women, the burkini (as Ahiida notes) was “the subject of an immediate rush of interest and demand.” Additionally, some women (like British cooking celebrity Nigella Lawson) wear it to avoid a tan, while pious Jews have adopted a variant garment.
In 2009, a public swimming pool in Emerainville, France, excluded a burkini-wearing woman, on the grounds that she violated pool rules by wearing street clothes. But burkinis only erupted into a national political issue on Aug. 12 when the mayor of Cannes, a resort town on the French Riviera, banned burkinis (without legally defining what exactly they are) on the Cannes beaches because it represents Islamism. A court then confirmed his ban and the prime minister of France, Manuel Valls, further endorsed it (on the grounds that the burkini is a religious expression that has no place on the beach) as did François Fillon, a likely candidate for president next year. Thus encouraged, other French municipalities followed suit, including the city of Nice, plus another nine towns in the Alpes-Maritimes Department as well as five towns in the Var Department.

Soros’s Campaign of Global Chaos
By Caroline Glick
Soros-backed projects share basic common attributes. They all work to weaken the ability of national and local authorities in Western democracies to uphold the laws and values of their nations and communities.
Major media outlets in the US have ignored the leak of thousands of emails from billionaire George Soros’s Open Society Foundation by the activist hacker group DCLeaks. The OSF is the vehicle through which Soros has funneled billions of dollars over the past two decades to non-profit organizations in the US and throughout the world.
According to the documents, Soros has given more than $30 million to groups working for Hillary Clinton’s election in November, making him her largest single donor. So it is likely the case that the media’s support for Clinton has played some role in the mainstream media’s bid to bury the story.
It is also likely however, that at least some news editors failed to understand why the leaked documents were worth covering. Most of the information was already public knowledge. Soros’s massive funding of far-left groups in the US and throughout the world has been documented for more than a decade.

Christian Summer Conferences Offer Israel Blessings and Curses

By Susan Warner
Several international Christian policy conferences this summer have produced a mixed bag of both blessings and curses — all aimed at Israel. The United Methodists, The Southern Baptists, The Presbyterian Church (USA) and the Unitarian Universalists are worth noting here.
A segment of Christians is actually trying to delude the world into thinking the absurd: that the ancient Jews of Canaan and Judea are “colonialists” who are “illegally occupying” their own native land.
Seemingly undeterred by their 2016 defeats, the Christian anti-Israel coalitions are regrouping for their next attacks, while pro-Israel Christian Zionist organizations — including Christians United for Israel (CUFI), Friends of Israel (FOI), International Christian Embassy of Jerusalem (ICEJ) and Bridges for Peace, among others, continue to speak out and teach the facts and the truth about Israel to Christians throughout the U.S. and Europe.
Still, the Bible gives us hope and assurance that there is a future day when Israel will be able to bask in the elusive peace it demonstrably continues to offer those who are trying to destroy it.
In breaking news yesterday, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America approved a resolution calling on the U.S. government to end all aid to Israel if Israel does not stop building settlements and “enable an independent Palestinian state.”
Several international Christian policy conferences this summer have produced a mixed bag of both blessings and curses — all aimed at Israel. The United Methodists, The Southern Baptists, The Presbyterian Church (USA) and the Unitarian Universalists are worth noting here.
United Methodists
From the quadrennial United Methodist General Conference (UMGC), the good news is that the four major divestment and boycott proposals were defeated in committee before ever reaching a floor vote. The primary targets of the defeated boycott campaign were Caterpillar and Motorola, the corporate giants alleged — in a totally fictitious plot — to be co-conspirators with Israel supposedly to disable and destroy the Palestinian people.

The Human Side of Hillary
By Cliff Kincaid
The “25 Things You Don’t Know About Me” cover story in "Us Magazine" had nothing about emails or Benghazi. Instead, written from her own perspective, she informs us, “Bill Clinton proposed to me twice before I said yes.” Nothing was said about his womanizing or impeachment.
Some of us in the media watchdog business think Americans are anxious to read every last word from The New York Times and The Washington Post. These are important papers that do help shape the national agenda. But many people look to publications like the National Enquirer, the tabloid solidly in the corner of Donald J. Trump, the one that he used to smear Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX). On the other hand, the Democratic presidential candidate has US Weekly with millions of readers in her corner. Its May 2 issue featured a cover story on Hillary Clinton, telling America the “fun facts” about the former First Lady, such as that she loves to snack on hot chili peppers, and “I put hot sauce on everything.”
I was forced to read several copies of the weekly celebrity and entertainment magazine while waiting in a doctor’s office with a dead cell phone. It’s a different media world with its own sphere of influence that may eclipse so-called serious papers like the Post and Times.
In this world, Hillary is a celebrity, not a politician. But she’s just like us, an ordinary person. She eats things we eat. She does things we do.
I don’t know for sure who reads US Weekly on a regular basis, but the publication claims to have millions of subscribers and reaches through its various platforms a total of 50 million “young, high income consumers with the most timely and current entertainment news, style, beauty and fitness/nutrition content…”

The Temple Mount and UNESCO
By Dr. Denis MacEoin
Denial of international law and ethics allows many Muslims to claim the city of Jerusalem as an Islamic city, a city that can never be treated as the capital of a Jewish state, a holy place that has meaning for Muslims and Muslims alone.
The attempts to deny any ancient and ongoing Jewish presence in Jerusalem, to say there was never a first let alone a second Temple and that only Muslims have any right to the whole city, its shrines and historical monuments, have reached insane proportions.
Is this really what it boils down to? The Islamic State rules the international community? Including UNESCO?
The world is outraged when it sees the stones of Palmyra tumble, or other great monuments of human civilization turn to dust. But that same world is silent when the Palestinian Arabs and their supporters Islamise everything by calling into question the very presence of the Jewish people in the Holy Land.
UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, is known throughout the world for the many places it designates as World Heritage Sites. There are more than one thousand of these, distributed unequally in many countries, with Italy at the top, followed by China.
The largest single category of sites consists of religious sites, categorized under the heading of cultural locations (as distinct from natural ones). Within this category, UNESCO has carried out many dialogues with communities in order to ensure that religious sensitivities are acknowledged and guaranteed. UNESCO has undertaken many measures in this field.

 “No Room for the Zionist Entity in the Region”
By Khaled Abu Toameh
The dreamers in English still have it: “Hamas and Israel, Israel and Hamas. Maybe one day…who knows.” And then the Arabic-language truth rolls in: “Death to Israel, always!”
“The Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) believes that the land of Palestine has been an Islamic Wakf throughout the generations and until the Day of Resurrection, no one can renounce it or part of it, or abandon it or part of it. There is no solution to the Palestinian problem except Jihad.” — Hamas Charter.
Hamas’s decision to participate in the upcoming local and municipal elections will further strengthen the movement and pave the way for it to extend its control from the Gaza Strip to the West Bank.
“The Zionist entity will not be part of this region. We will continue to resist it until the liberation of our land and the return of our people.” — Musa Abu Marzouk, senior Hamas official.
How precisely Hamas intends to “serve” the Palestinians by running in the elections is somewhat murky. Abu Marzouk did not talk about building new schools and parks for the Palestinians. When he talks about “serving” the people, he means only one thing: recruiting Palestinians to Hamas and jihad against Israel and the Jews.
The dreamers in English still have it: “Hamas and Israel, Israel and Hamas. Maybe one day…who knows.” And then the Arabic-language truth rolls in: “Death to Israel, always!”
Some Arab and Western political analysts have mistakenly interpreted Hamas’s agreement to participate in the Palestinian local and municipal elections, scheduled for October 8, as a sign of the movement’s “pragmatism” and march toward recognizing Israel’s right to exist.
They falsely assume that Hamas’s readiness to take part in the democratic process shows that the leaders of the extremist movement are also prepared to abandon their dream of destroying Israel and abandoning the “armed struggle” against it.

Confirmed: Islam, Not ‘Grievances,’ Fuels Muslim Hate for the West
By Raymond Ibrahim
If Muslims are persecuting people who share their nationality, ethnicity, culture, and language—on the simple basis that they are Christians—why should there be any surprise, or excuses of “grievances,” when Muslims terrorize the “infidels” of the West?
An old (and tiresome) debate appears to have been settled by those best positioned to settle it.  According to Andrew Gripp, a former political science professor:
Since 9/11, one of the defining fault lines in American and Western politics has concerned whether jihadist groups such as al-Qaeda and ISIS are motivated by their religion or by politics – or more specifically, by grievances against Western foreign policy. Some insist that Islamic doctrine is the basis of their violence, while others insist that such groups are not truly Islamic, but are instead using the guise of religion to lash out against Western influence and intervention.
After indicating how “jihadist groups’ political behavior is consistently traceable to their beliefs about what the Quran, hadith, and respected commentaries say they have a divine injunction to do,” Gripp writes:
For years, however, making this case has been a challenge. This is in part because al-Qaeda was intentionally speaking to both sides in this debate. As the scholar Raymond Ibrahim demonstrates in The Al Qaeda Reader, the terrorist group would regularly frame its grievances in political terms when broadcasting its message to the West (so as to insinuate that once the West withdrew, peace would come). Yet when speaking to the Muslim world, the group would make highly sophisticated religious arguments, explaining why its actions, however reprehensible on their face, were in fact justified by a close reading of the holy texts.
This was indeed the main reason I sought to translate and publish al-Qaeda’s internal communiques to fellow Muslims side-by-side with al-Qaeda’s communiques to the West: to show the stark differences in tone and purpose.  As I wrote in the book’s preface ten years ago:
This volume of translations [The Al Qaeda Reader], taken as a whole, proves once and for all that, despite the propaganda of al-Qaeda and its sympathizers, radical Islam’s war with the West is not finite and limited to political grievances—real or imagined—but is existential, transcending time and space and deeply rooted in faith.

UN Demands Release of Worker Who Aided Hamas, Labels Beersheba an Arab City
“There are six things which Hashem hateth, yea, seven which are an abomination unto Him: Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood. (Proverbs 6:16-17)
The UN’s Office of Legal Affairs (OLA) sent a letter to Israel’s Ambassador to the UN, Danny Danon, requesting the release of Waheed Abdallah Borsh, a UNDP worker arrested in July for illegally diverting millions of dollars of humanitarian relief to Hamas. In the letter, the UN specifically referred to the Israeli city of Beersheba by an Arabic name.

The letter sent earlier this week cited Article 105 of the UN Charter, which Israel adopted in 1949, stating that Borsh, as a UN employee, “enjoys immunity from personal arrest or detention, as well as immunity from legal process in respect of words spoken or written and acts done in performance of his mission.”

Borsh is being held in an Israeli jail in Beersheba, which the letter referred to in Arabic as  Ber asaabeaa. The eighth largest city in Israel in terms of population, and the second largest in terms of size, Beersheba has been part of Israel since 1948 and is universally recognized as within Israel’s borders.
Beersheba is mentioned many times in the Bible, receiving its name when Abraham entered into a covenant with Avimelech. ‘Beer’ means ‘well’. ‘Sheva means both ‘oath’ and ‘seven’.

Jewish Refugees From Syria Find Safety
in Kentucky
“Hashem redeemeth the soul of His servants; and none of them that take refuge in Him shall be desolate.” (Pslams 34:23)
A Jewish refugee blog reported that a Conservative synagogue in Louisville, Kentucky has taken in three Jewish families from Syria, ending a harrowing journey in which they had to hide their Jewish identity in order to flee war-torn Syria.

Point of No Return reported that the three families, 13 people including seven children, fled Damascus four months ago, arriving in Sweden while posing as Christian Arab refugees. The Louisville synagogue worked with local and federal authorities to allow the families into the US. The families were described as being financially well-off and multilingual.
image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/184-catch%20the%20jew%20banner.jpg
It was estimated last year that only 18 Jews remained in Syria from a community dating back to Roman times, with large Jewish populations in Aleppo and Damascus. Most of the Jews emigrated in the first half of the 20th century. There are currently about 75,000 Syrian Jews living in the United States, with most living in the NY-NJ area.
Kentucky was one of the first states to begin receiving refugees in 2015, but their good will was blemished when two Al Qaeda terrorists who had killed American soldiers in Iraq, arrived in Kentucky, posing as Syrian refugees. They were caught by the FBI with a storage locker containing heavy weapons.

Putin, Netanyahu Talk Peace Process
on Phone
“Sayest thou that a mere word of the lips is counsel and strength for the war?” (II Kings 18:20)
Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke on the phone with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday, the Kremlin press service reported, adding that the conversation was initiated by Israel.

“The leaders exchanged opinions on Middle East settlement issues and topical aspects of the general situation in the region. They agreed to continue active Russian-Israeli contacts at different levels,” the report said.

On Wednesday August 17, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov, Putin’s Special Representative for the Middle East and Africa, discussed prospects for advancing Palestinian-Israeli peace talks with PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas in Amman. Bogdanov also delivered a personal message from Putin to Abbas.

image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/useful_banner_manager_banners/413-StateOfIsrael-600Wide.jpg

The Russian Foreign Ministry later issued a statement saying “the talks were meaningful and trustful. The sides considered prospects for advancing the Palestinian-Israeli settlement in strict compliance with the principles of international law. They also discussed the restoration of Palestinian national unity along the PLO’s political platform designed to create an independent Palestinian state, which would live in peace and security with its neighbors, including Israel.”

To be clear, in its current situation, the PA only has two neighbors: Israel and Jordan, so it’s a relief to read that it plans to live in peace with both. This considering the fact that Hamas, in the Gaza Strip, also has only two neighbors, Israel and Egypt, and it is maintaining a perpetual state of war with both.

Israel’s First NASCAR Driver Revved
Up to Win
“He pursueth them, and passeth on safely; the way with his feet he treadeth not.” (Isaiah 41:3)
As a young boy growing up in Ashdod, Israel, Alon Day got his first go-kart at age 9. By 15, he was racing them.

Less than a decade later, Day has become the first Israeli professional race car driver on the NASCAR circuit. He made history by competing in NASCAR’s Xfinity Series race at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course on Aug. 13.

“Driving a race car is not like any other sport,” Day told JNS.org. “You are actually almost flying on the ground which is great. And the adrenaline is something I cannot describe in words. You have to be in the race car to really understand what I’m talking about.”

Day, 24, lives in Tel Aviv but is spending a lot of time in the United States, making a splash by proudly carrying the banner of being the first Israeli in a uniquely American sport.

“It’s a big honor to be the first Israeli in American NASCAR,” he said. “I raced in European NASCAR for two years but being here for the main events, it’s big. I’m fortunate to be the one.”

As for the risks that come with competitive high-speed racing – sometimes in treacherously wet conditions, as was the case with the Ohio race where he finished in an admirable 13th place – Day takes it in stride.

What if the Third Temple Didn’t Look Like We Expect?
By Rivkah Lambert Adler August 26, 2016 , 8:00 am
“In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen and close up the breaches thereof and I will raise up his ruins and I will build it as in the days of old.” Amos 9:11 (The Israel Bible™)

image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/third-holy-temple-model.jpg
A model of the second Holy Temple (Photo: Shutterstock.com)
The first two Temples in Jerusalem were physical structures that were destroyed by God’s command. Earlier this month, Torah teacher Sarah Yehudit Schneider released a video in which she suggests that the Third Temple will not necessarily be a physical structure at all.

Last week, Jews all around the world marked Tisha B’Av, the date on the Hebrew calendar which commemorates the destruction of both Holy Temples in Jerusalem. Each year, Tisha B’Av is followed by seven weeks of consolation, during which Messianic passages from the Book of Isaiah are read in synagogue on the Sabbath.

When the Temples stood in Jerusalem, God’s Presence was manifest in the world. The prophet Isaiah promises that, in the future, the Temple will also be a source of wisdom for the nations.

And many peoples shall go and say: “Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of Hashem, to the house of the God of Yaakov; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths.” For out of Tzion shall go forth the law, and the word of Hashem from Yerushalayim. Isaiah 2:3

Although it is common to assume that the Third Temple will also be a physical structure, Schneider has a surprising take on the future. Speaking to Breaking Israel News, she said, “There are nearly infinite scenarios of how this messianic era could unfold and the order of the various events anticipated. The messianic era is the transition between this world and the next. So the earlier stages are more this world-like, and the later stages are more next world-like.”

Schneider explained that both the Tabernacle in the desert and the first two Temples were a diminishment of God’s original vision. In the video, she teaches that “the original vision—the one Hashem (God) had in mind from the start—was for the community of Israel itself to become a living Mishkan (Tabernacle). The people themselves going about their God-centered lives would embody the Presence and shine it into the world.”

As a result of our various sins, we lost the ability to exist on such a lofty level. Thus, the Tabernacle and the first two Temples hosted the Divine Presence in a physical structure that stood apart from ourselves, she explains.

“It’s all we’ve ever known,” teaches Schneider. “But the question becomes, what about the Third Temple? Will it be like the previous two? Will it also be of stones and wood and cloth and skins…or will it be more like the originally envisioned Sanctuary, the living community of Israel holding the Presence of God and shining it into the world through the integrity of their God-centered lives?”

Since the messianic age will offer healing to our souls, Schneider claims that, eventually, the Third Temple “will really be the First Temple, meaning the first one to actually embody what Hashem truly envisioned as our Tabernacle.”

However, that doesn’t mean that there will not be a building we can point to and call the Third Temple. “If the Temple is built at the beginning of [the messianic] period, then it is likely that the Jewish people will start off with a physical Temple and then we will eventually outgrow it,” Schneider told Breaking Israel News.

If the Jewish people “outgrow” the need for a physical Temple, what will happen to the structure itself? According to Schneider, it will be used by other nations, who will also be growing spiritually. As she describes in the video, in the messianic age, “everyone moves up a notch. No doubt there will be other nations who are first transitioning into monotheism and their next step is to confine their animal sacrifices to the One-and-Only-One, and so we will still need a Temple of stone and wood and tapestry, etc., to service them.”

While presenting this alternative paradigm of the Third Temple, Schneider cautions that we can’t know for sure how things will play out. “At any rate, it is important to remember that we cannot possibly imagine what will actually be in messianic times.

“There are conflicting opinions about how the messianic times will differ from our present reality. [12th century Jewish scholar] Rambam (and his camp) assert that the only difference will be that the Jewish people will be self-governing, but the world will remain basically the same. Most everyone else asserts that the world will be profoundly transformed in all ways, both material and spiritual.

“And yet there will be so many paradigm shifts, new dimensions and expansions of consciousness that we cannot possibly anticipate, even in our most wild science fiction, what will actually be happening then. Whatever we know (or think we know), it is just the chapter headings. How those words will actually look when they embody themselves in the altered reality of messianic times…we need to humbly admit that we really have no idea.”

Schneider lives in the Old City of Jerusalem, where she interprets the mystical teachings of Judaism for a wide audience of spiritual seekers.

Why Is a Christian Group Taking a Torah Scroll on Tour to Churches Nationwide?
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz August 25, 2016 , 12:30 pm
“She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her, and happy is every one that holdest her fast.” Proverbs 3:18 (The Israel Bible™)
image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/torah-scroll-1.jpg
The Torah scroll on tour with the Ratio Christi organization (Ratio Christi Facebook Page)
A Christian organization is taking a new look at the ancient Torah scroll, going on tour with an antique, history-rich scroll to American campuses and churches across the country in order to allow Christians to interact with the word of God as it has been preserved since Biblical times.
Though the Bible is central to the two Abrahamic religions, it is expressed in vastly different ways: for Jews, the Bible means the Torah alone, written in Hebrew on parchment, while for Christians, it exists in virtually thousands of different languages, versions, and interpretations. As Christians gaze at the most holy object in Judaism, the object that represents the words written by the finger of God, Jews are left wondering what it is the Christians see.
Ratio Christi displays the Torah scroll with magnifying glasses. (Ratio Christi Facebook Page)
The 93-foot-long  parchment scroll was written around 1750 in the style used by Ashkenazi (Eastern European) scribes. It was  in Germany on the night of Kristallnacht, when 7,500 Jewish businesses were looted and destroyed, 267 synagogues torched, and up to 1,000 Torah scrolls burned. It is unknown how the scroll survived that night or the next seven years of the of the war.

Biblical Numerology Reveals Deep Torah Insights
“He counteth the number of the stars; He giveth them all their names.” Psalms 147:4 (The Israel Bible™)

Gematria, one of the most widely-used Biblical study tools in Judaism, is the exploration of the deeper meaning of Hebrew words based on an ancient system of Biblical numerology. Each Hebrew letter has a numerical equivalent. When two completely different Hebrew words or phrases share the same numerical value, deep Torah insights are gleaned.
“Gematria is both a fun and challenging way to reveal Biblical secrets and understandings,” Roni Segal, the academic adviser for eTeacher, an online language academy, told Breaking Israel News. “Hidden within the literal Hebrew Bible text is a mathematical structure which reveals its Godly origins and the messages that God wanted to share with those who study the Bible.”
Use of Gematria for Bible study has been recorded as far back 200 CE. Talmudic scholars included gematria in their discourses to enhance a cogent idea and mystics have used it to demonstrate the oneness of God and the interconnectedness of all of reality. It is a way to “connect the dots” between Torah and human existence.

Germany Urges Citizens to Start “Prepping” for Possible Doomsday Scenarios
“There is desirable treasure and oil in the dwelling of the wise; but a foolish man swalloweth it up.” (Proverbs 21:20)
 The German government told its citizens on Wednesday to stockpile at least a week’s worth of food and water in case of a serious attack or catastrophe, Reuters reported. It is the first time since the Cold War that Germany has enforced an emergency preparedness plan for the entire nation.
“The population will be obliged to hold an individual supply of food for ten days,” read the 70-page plan, called the “Concept for Civil Defense”, prepared by the Interior Ministry.
Citizens will also be required to store five days’ worth of drinking water.

You Won’t Believe Where Prophesied Israel-Ishmael Reconciliation Could Be Taking Place Today
 “And God said unto Avraham: ‘Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad, and because of thy bondwoman; in all that Sara saith unto thee, hearken unto her voice; for in Yitzchak shall seed be called to thee. And also of the son of the bondwoman will I make a nation, because he is thy seed.’” Genesis 21:12-13 (The Israel Bible™)

The casting out of Hagar and Ishmael. (Paolo Veronese 1585)
Quite literally alone in a sea of Islam, one rabbi has found the beginnings of the prophesied reconciliation between Isaac and Ishmael in the largest Muslim country in the world: Indonesia.
Rabbi Tovia Singer has had many jobs and titles, but perhaps the most impressive is that of the official rabbi of the world’s fourth largest country. That said, his congregation numbers less than 300, barely the size of an average American synagogue. His pulpit is Indonesia, a country with 17,000 islands and a population of 250 million, but no more than a handful of Jews.
“I came here for the hidden Jews,” Rabbi Singer explained to Breaking Israel News, “But have found an amazing world in which Muslims honor Jews.”
“What is happening here in Indonesia is the prophesied reunion of Ishmael and Isaac,” Rabbi Singer continued. He cited the verse in Genesis in which Ishmael and Isaac come together at Abraham’s funeral.

Brussels Airlines Removes "Controversial Israeli Dessert" From Menu
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that change darkness into light, and light into darkness; that change bitter into sweet, and sweet into bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20)
Brussels Airlines has stopped serving Israeli-made halva on flights after a complaint was launched by a Palestinian activist.
The Palestinian Solidarity Movement activist was traveling from Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion International Airport to Brussels when he noticed the dessert being served was made by the Achva brand. He informed other activists about the product and they complained to the airline who conceded to their request.
The treat is made in the Barkan industrial park in the West Bank, an area the anti-Israel group calls “illegally occupied territory.”

Israel Evacuates Animals From“World’s Worst Zoo” in Gaza Strip
“And God made the beast of the earth after its kind, and the cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the ground after its kind; and God saw that it was good.” (Genesis 1:25)
Israel assisted in the evacuation of 15 wild animals from a dilapidated zoo in southern Gaza which has been called the “world’s worst”, rescuing the wildlife for better lives in zoos and sanctuaries elsewhere.
Included among the animals rescued were a tiger, five Guenon monkeys, two ostriches, two deer, two eagles, two turtles, a swan and a porcupine.
All of the animals were brought from Gaza to Israel on Wednesday through the Erez Crossing. Some will remain in Israel, joining zoos in Ramat Gan and Ben Shemen. Others will be sent overseas to zoos in South Africa and Jordan.

3,500-Year-Old Metal Tools, Medieval Grenades Discovered on Israeli Beach
“Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.” Psalms 2:9 (The Israel Bible™)
image: http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/artifacts-1.jpg
The ancient metal artifacts were retrieved from the sea and turned over to the Israel Antiquities Authority. (Diego Barkan, Israel Antiquities Authority.)
Many archaeological artifacts, some dating back 3,500 years, were discovered in the sea near an Israeli power plant by an employee over the span of decades. Family members of the employee, the late Marcel Mazliah, have now presented the ancient finds to Israeli officials, who say they were surprised by what they found.
“The finds include a toggle pin and the head of a knife from the Middle Bronze Age, more than 3,500 years ago,” said Ayala Lester, a curator with the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA). “Other items include two mortars, two pestles, and fragments of candlesticks, all dating back to the time of the Fatimid Caliphate around the eleventh century CE.”
The artifacts also included grenade-like ceramic pieces commonly found in Israel during the Crusader, Ayyubid, and Mamluk periods.

US paid Iran $1.3 billion, two days after $400m cash deliveryObama administration says 13 payments of $99,999,999.99 and final payment of about $10 million part of resolution of military saleBY BRADLEY KLAPPER August 25, 2016, 4:51 am 
SHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration said Wednesday it paid $1.3 billion in interest to Iran in January to resolve a decades-old dispute over an undelivered military sale, two days after allowing $400 million in cash to fly to Tehran.

State Department spokeswoman Elizabeth Trudeau says the US couldn’t say more about the Jan. 19 payments because of diplomatic sensitivities. They involved 13 separate payments of $99,999,999.99 and final payment of about $10 million. There was no explanation for the Treasury Department keeping the individual transactions under $100 million.

The money settles a dispute over a $400 million payment made in the 1970s by the US-backed shah’s government for military equipment. The equipment was never delivered because of the 1979 Islamic Revolution that overthrew the shah and ended diplomatic relations between the US and Iran.

On Jan. 17, the administration paid Iran the account’s $400 million principal in pallets of euros, Swiss francs and other foreign currency, raising questions about the unusual payment. The $1.3 billion covers what Iran and the US agreed would be the interest on the $400 million over the decades.

The deal has faced increased scrutiny since the administration’s acknowledgment this month that it used the money as leverage to ensure the release of four American prisoners.

Republican critics accuse the administration of paying a “ransom.”

President Barack Obama and other officials deny such claims, though they’ve struggled to explain why the US paid in cash. Obama said it was because the United States and Iran didn’t have a banking relationship after years of nuclear-related sanctions, but that wouldn’t rule out using intermediary banks that maintain relationship with both.

Briefing reporters last week, a senior US official involved in the negotiations said the interest payments were made to Iran in a “fairly above-board way,” using a foreign central bank. But the official, who wasn’t authorized to be quoted by name and demanded anonymity, wouldn’t say if the interest was delivered to Iran in physical cash, as with the $400 million principal, or via a more regular banking mechanism.

The money came from a little-known fund administered by the Treasury Department for settling litigation claims. The so-called Judgment Fund is taxpayer money Congress has permanently approved in the event it’s needed, allowing the president to bypass direct congressional approval to make a settlement. The US previously paid out $278 million in Iran-related claims by using the fund in 1991.
