According to the Wall Street Journal, special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating whether President Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner colluded with Israel to block a UN resolution condemning settlement policy. 
By: World Israel News Staff
Special counsel Robert Mueller and his team are investigating White House senior adviser Jared Kushner’s contacts with foreign leaders, and specifically those with Israeli leaders, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.
The Journal reported Tuesday that Mueller’s team is probing Kushner’s involvement in an attempt to thwart a United Nations (UN) resolution passed in December 2016 that condemned Israel for its presence in Judea and Samaria.
Trump, who was president-elect at the time, called for the US to veto the resolution supported by then President Barack Obama, saying the resolution was “extremely unfair to all Israelis.”
The UN Security Council (UNSC) passed the resolution due to a US’ abstention.

IDF protects 1000 Jews praying at Joseph’s Tomb, rescues 3 Israelis

Israeli army units in the Palestinian Authority-controlled city of Shechem (Nablus) guarded a massive prayer group at a Jewish holy site, and were separately called upon to save three Israelis whose car had been stolen and set on fire.
By: World Israel News Staff
Early Tuesday morning, IDF forces assisted around 1,000 Israelis seeking to pray in the town of Shechem, which is home to the Tomb of Joseph, one of the most important figures in the Bible. While the site has remained a major destination for Jewish pilgrimage, it has become increasingly dangerous for Jews to visit Shechem, now controlled by the Palestinian Authority (PA) which refers to the town as Nablus.
In addition to the large group of worshipers at Joseph’s Tomb on Tuesday morning, three other Israelis had independently entered the town without authorization from the IDF, which is prohibited. After the three had exited their car, the vehicle was stolen and apparently set ablaze by local Arabs. The IDF was then called on to locate and rescue the Israelis.
Since control of Shechem was transferred to the PA during the 1990s as a result of the Oslo accords, Arabs have committed a number of violent attacks on Jews visiting the area to pray at Joseph’s Tomb.

Former IDF Soldier, Left-Wing NGO Spokesman Caught Slandering Israeli Army
According to the Israeli State Attorney, the spokesman for ‘Breaking the Silence’, a former IDF soldier, lied when claiming that he personally used violence against a Palestinian while serving in the army.  Prime Minister Benjamin  Netanyahu accuses the left-wing NGO with intentionally  slandering the Israeli Army.
Israel’s State Attorney found that a spokesman for Breaking the Silence (BtS), an NGO that alleges abuses by Israel soldiers, lied when he claimed that he had beaten a Palestinian suspect.  Dean Issacharoff, spokesman for BtS had spoken of an incident where he claimed that he beat a Palestinian man whom he was arresting while doing reserve duty in Hebron.
The State Attorney closed the case on Thursday “after the investigation revealed that the events he described did not occur.”
The Arab man, whom Issacharoff said he had beaten, acknowledged that he had been arrested in February 2014, as Issacharoff said, but confirmed that he wasn’t beaten.

By: World Israel News Staff
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin to discuss the latest developments in Syria.
The Kremlin said that Putin also called Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi to discuss the same issue.
Tuesday’s conversations  with Netanyahu and el-Sissi followed Putin’s calls with President Donald Trump and Saudi King Salman. They come a day after Syrian President Bashar Assad’s surprise visit to Russia for talks with Putin. The Kremlin says Putin and Assad discussed potential diplomatic initiatives for Syria ahead of a summit between Russia, Turkey and Iran and a new round of Syria peace talks in Geneva later this month.

More than 500 people from over 19 communities in seven countries were consulted in a survey conducted by a leading Jewish think-tank.
The Jewish People Policy Institute (JPPI) conducted discussions on Jerusalem around the world in the early part of 2017 and released its report on Tuesday, entitled “Jerusalem and the Jewish People: Unity and Controversy.”
While many discussion participants believe that Israel ought to take Diaspora Jewry’s concerns on a range of subjects into consideration, the report found that their support for Jerusalem remained heartfelt and strong.
Half “completely” agreed with the statement, “When visiting Jerusalem I feel at home,” and 30 percent more “somewhat” agreed with this statement. A Dialogue participant in Australia described his feelings this way: “I love the culture of Jerusalem, I would love to buy an apartment around the German Colony and spend six months of the year there. I could walk the streets all day. It feels safe. It feels like home.” A participant in Zurich commented: “Jerusalem is like an old spouse: she is not as beautiful as she once was, but she still means so very much to me.”

Trump puts North Korea back on US’ terrorism blacklist

Trump puts North Korea back on US’ terrorism blacklistPresident Donald Trump (AP/Pablo Martinez Monsivais)
Seeking to put “maximum pressure” on North Korea, President Trump has put the country back on the US’ state-supporters of terrorism blacklist. 
By: AP
President Donald Trump announced Monday the US is putting North Korea’s “murderous regime” on America’s terrorism blacklist.
Trump said that the designation as a state sponsor of terror is long overdue, and promised a new wave of sanctions as part of a “maximum pressure campaign” over North Korea’s development of nuclear weapons.
North Korea will join Iran, Sudan and Syria on the blacklist. The North had been designated for two decades until 2008, when it was removed in a bid to salvage international talks aimed at halting its nuclear efforts. The talks collapsed soon after.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said designating North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism is part of a push to continue “to turn the pressure up.”
Tillerson addressed reporters at the White House on Monday after Trump announced that the US is putting North Korea on America’s terrorism blacklist.
Tillerson said that the message to leader Kim Jong Un is that “this is only going to get worse until you’re ready to come and talk.”
Tillerson noted that it had been about two months since the country tested a missile. “We’re hopeful this period will continue,” he said.
Tillerson conceded that the designation is a “very symbolic move” with limited practical effects.

Knesset advances bill to crack down on BDS activists within Israel

Knesset advances bill to crack down on BDS activists within Israel(Miriam Alster/Flash90
“They don’t want peace, they simply want to delegitimize the State of Israel and destroy it as the Jewish homeland,” said one of the bill’s sponsors.
By: Jack Ben-David, World Israel News
Israeli lawmakers moved ahead in the Knesset Tuesday with legislation designed to target Israeli activists and companies that “systematically” call for boycotts, divestments and sanctions against Israel, making them liable to pay hefty penalties of up to NIS 500,000.
Spearheaded by Likud MK Yoav Kisch, the bill is the latest legal tool being sharpened by the Israeli government to puncture the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement (BDS), which has been inflated in recent years by the endorsement of prominent artists and musicians such as Roger Waters.
The new bill, which passed its initial reading by a vote of 60-40, is also the successor of a similar bill ratified in 2011 which enabled companies to demand compensation from activists calling for the boycott of Israeli firms located in various parts of Israel, including Judea and Samaria.
The law, however, was partially defanged by the High Court of Justice two years ago after it scrapped a clause allowing for the imposition of unlimited fines on the pro-BDS activists or companies.

By: Aryeh Savir and Jack Ben-David, World Israel News
Israel’s attitude towards any peace plan will be determined according to its security and national interests, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated, while adding that “these were made clear to our American friends.”
Speaking at the beginning of the weekly Cabinet meeting on Sunday, Netanyahu related to news reports over the weekend that the Trump administration was at its final stages of drafting a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians. Israel’s Channel 2 had reported that Trump’s peace plan includes the establishment of a Palestinian state.
“With regard to President Trump’s plan, we heard plenty of speculations over the weekend; I am not planning to address them.  However our attitude towards this plan will be determined according to security and national interests of the State of Israel, and these were made clear to our American friends,” he stated.
Earlier on, Netanyahu’s office categorically dismissed the reports as “not accurate,” adding that Israel’s “security needs and national needs of the State of Israel” would determine whether or not Jerusalem would approve of any peace plan

Issuing a statement on the 40th anniversary of the historic visit by Egyptian President Anwar Sadat to Israel, Liberman tweeted  “I call on leaders in the region to follow the path of President Sadat, come to Jerusalem and open a new chapter, not just in terms of Israel’s relations with the Arab world, but for the entire region.”

Rabin’s assassin Yigal Amir seeking retrial

Rabin’s assassin Yigal Amir seeking retrialYigal Amir on trial. (Flash90)
Israeli Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked insists that Yigal Amir will remain in prison for the rest of his life.
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
The man who assassinated Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin 22 years ago is in the process of preparing a motion which calls for his case to be retried.
Rabin was assassinated by  gunman Yigal Amir on November 4, 1995, at the end of a mass rally in support of the Oslo Accords at what was then called the ‘Kings of Israel Square’ in Tel Aviv.
Amir opposed Rabin’s peace initiative and particularly the signing of the Oslo Accords. He was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison.
Larisa Amir Trimboblar, the assassin’s wife, announced on Faebook on Saturday that a Swiss law firm is preparing a case which will call for Amir’s retrial and ultimately his release from prison.
While Amir is not denying that he fired shots at Rabin, he is claiming that the bullets he fired did not cause Rabin’s death.
The lawyers for the assassin say they have found more than 18 points which they claim will challenge Amir’s conviction, and plan to submit their findings to the media.
Israeli leaders reject the notion of a retrial. Tweeting in response to the story, Minister of Education Naftali Bennett (Jewish Home) wrote: “The murderer of the prime minister must end his days in prison. On this topic, there is no [political] right or left. Every murder is terrible, but the murder of a prime minister can dismantle the country.”

Israeli Defense Minister: We need $5 billion boost to prevent next warIsraeli Minister of Defense Avigdor Liberman (Ariel Hermoni/Ministry of Defense)
Israeli Minister of Defense Avigdor Liberman says growing problems require a nearly $5 billion boost to security budget.  
By: World Israel News Staff
Israeli Minister of Defense Avigdor Liberman has called for a significant boost to his ministry’s budget in light of a major shift in Israel’s defense necessities.
The ministry is seeking another NIS 4.8 billion that would be paid out over the course of three years to contend with a “dramatic change” in the threats Israel is now facing in the region.
According to Liberman,“There is a fundamental change in the security situation in the region which requires an increase in the defense budget.” Liberman added,  “Our primary goal is to prevent the next war.”
Russia’s growing military presence in the area, and specifically in Syria, the introduction of a precision weapons threat, and Iran’s dramatic military buildup are part of the “major” changes Liberman listed in his request for more funding.
The Ministry of Defense in 2015 signed a five-year budget plan, but Liberman says that these new threats and other were not taken into consideration when the budget was formulated.
He noted that Israel’s defense establishment has already exceeded the 2015 budget by NIS 1.8 billion in investment in new projects that were not included in the 2015 budget.
Liberman concluded by saying,“the IDF will deal with every challenge under any circumstance.”

Netanyahu: ‘I have not yet met the Palestinian Sadat’Mahmoud Abbas (L) (Flash 90); Anwar Sadat (Abed Rahim Khatib/
Marking 40 years since Anwar Sadat helped usher in a historic peace accord, Prime Minister Netanyahu contrasted the former Egyptian president’s willingness to end conflict with the Palestinians’ recalcitrance.
By: Jack Ben-David
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday he regretted the fact that he had not yet met the Palestinian version of former Egyptian president Anwar Sadat, who signed a peace accord with Menachem Begin in 1979, and who “had a desire to end the conflict.”
Addressing the Knesset Plenum to mark 40 years since Sadat departed for an historic journey to Jerusalem to kick-start peace talks with Israel, departing from a long-standing policy of institutionalized animosity toward the Jewish state, Netanyahu expressed his “sincere regret, (that) I have not yet come across the Palestinian Sadat who will declare his desire to end the conflict, who will recognize the State of Israel in any borders, whatever they may be, and will support our right to live in peace and security.”
Highlighting the changes that are sweeping the Middle East, and seemingly referencing the bolstered, albeit clandestine, relations between Israel and Saudi Arabia, Netanyahu implied that Sadat’s decision to normalize relations may be emulated.

Lashing out at Arab League for branding Hezbollah as ‘terrorists,’ its leader Hassan Nasrallah rebukes the claim while he admits to arming Palestinian groups in Gaza.
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah admitted that his terror organization is providing arms to terror groups in Gaza, while insisting that Hezbollah is not a terror organization.
In a televised speech delivered on Monday, Nasrallah said that allegations made by Arab foreign ministers during an Arab League meeting on Sunday that Hezbollah was involved in terrorism were “silly” and “completely baseless.”
The Arab League declared Hezbollah a terror organization while accusing it of sending ballistic missile to Yemen’s Houthi rebels and saying that Hezbollah was responsible for the missile attack on Riyadh a week ago.
“I categorically deny any role of any member of Hezbollah in launching this missile,” said Nasrallah, saying that the terror group has not sent ballistic missiles, advanced weapons “or even a pistol” to Yemen, Bahrain, or Kuwait.

WATCH: First footage of Syrians crossing Israeli border for medical care
 November 21, 2017
For the first time, the IDF allowed journalists to film Syrians crossing the border en route to medical treatment at a hospital in northern Israel.

Unprecedented footage broadcast on Israeli television Sunday revealed Syrian women and children crossing into Israel for medical treatment with assistance from the IDF, in the latest showcasing of the Jewish state’s humanitarian aid to its war-torn neighbor.

The scope of the IDF’s “Operation Good Neighbor” mission had been revealed for the first time in July. The operation was initiated several years ago as an ad-hoc measure to treat Syrians who came to the border asking for help from Israel. The effort developed into an expanded program in June 2016 as humanitarian needs continued to grow.
“Our goal is to provide security and create good neighborly relations for people on both sides of the border,” Lt. Col. E (full name withheld for security reasons), the commander of Operation Good Neighbor, told JNS.org. “We will continue to do so in the best and most efficient way possible.”
According to the IDF, the operation has provided medical treatment to more than 4,000 Syrians, including hundreds of children. The military has transferred more than 119,000 gallons of heating and cooking fuel as well as 40 tons of flour, 225 tons of food, 12,000 packages of baby formula, 1,800 packages of diapers, 12 tons of shoes and 55 tons of cold weather clothing.
Additionally, the IDF is facilitating the construction of two clinics within Syria that will be run by local residents and NGOs to support some 80,000 Syrians living near Israel’s border in the Golan Heights region. Another clinic is being constructed on an IDF outpost on the Israeli side of the border.
Assaf Orion, a senior research fellow at Israel’s Institute for National Security Studies, explained that since the start of the Syrian Civil War, Israel has been “wise to avoid being drawn into the quagmire, its policy focusing on safeguarding well-defined red lines” on issues such as cross-border attacks and weapons transfers to terrorist organizations like Hezbollah. Yet when Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime “attacked the Syrian populace, besieged its towns, starved them, and deprived them of water, electricity and medical services, Israel chose to reach out to communities across its borders,” he said.

Arab League harshly criticizes Iran, brands Hezbollah a terror group

The Arab League has stepped up its rhetoric against Iran’s belligerence in the region. But will they take action against the Shiite power?

By: AP

In a resolution long on rhetoric but short on concrete steps, Arab foreign ministers who met in Cairo Sunday delivered a tirade of criticism against Iran and its Lebanese terror proxy Hezbollah, saying Tehran was destabilizing the region.

The Arab leaders said they planned to “brief” the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) on Iran’s destabilizing policies in the region, particularly its support for Shiite rebels in Yemen, with a view to submit at a later stage an anti-Iran Arab resolution.

In what is perhaps the only concrete measure, the ministers said Arab telecommunications satellites would ban Iranian-financed television stations for what they said was their fomenting of sectarian and ethnic tensions and because they posed a threat to Arab security. It gave no details.

“We are not declaring war on Iran at this stage,” Arab League chief Ahmed Aboul-Gheit said. “We have not taken a decision to ask the Security Council to meet, but we are just briefing the council and maybe the next stage would be for us to meet and call for a Security Council meeting and submit a draft Arab resolution (against Iran).”

Lebanon, where Hezbollah is a key member of a coalition government, and Iraq, a majority Shiite nation bound by close political and religious ties to Iran, stated their reservations about the harsher parts of the resolution, including one that branded Hezbollah a “terrorist” organization. The draft also blamed the Shiite group of supporting “terrorist groups” across the region and supplying them with weapons, including ballistic missiles.

The Lebanese envoy to the Arab League, Antoine Azzam, made carefully weighed comments at the meeting that reflected his country’s delicate religious and ethnic balance.

While not mentioning Iran by name, he said Lebanon condemned all attacks against Arab nations, but blamed exploitable inter-Arab divisions that allowed international and regional powers to promote their interests.

The House Foreign Affairs Committee passed the ‘Taylor Force Act’ that cuts all funding to the Palestinian Authority until it stops financially rewarding terrorists.
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
The House Foreign Affairs Committee on Wednesday unanimously voted in favor of the Taylor Force Act which requires the US to cut all funding to the Palestinian Authority (PA) until it ceases financial rewards for terrorism.
The Taylor Force Act would require the US Secretary of State to verify that the PA has ended its policy of paying off terrorists and their surviving family members. The bill also calls on the PA to publicly condemn terror attacks and to take steps to bring the perpetrators to justice.
The legislation was named after American war veteran Taylor Force, who was stabbed to death in a Palestinian terror attack that left 10 others wounded in Jaffa last March. Force, 29, served tours of duty in the US Army in Iraq and Afghanistan and was a graduate of the prestigious West Point Military Academy. He was in Israel as part of a Vanderbilt University trip.
The US provides the PA with approximately $300 million in aid annually. The PA spends approximately $300 million in payments to terrorists and their families every year.

Charge sheet: 26 year old ‘Ahmad A.’ killed one person and wounded six others in supermarket stabbing spree.
By: AP and World Israel News Staff
German authorities indicted a Palestinian on murder charges for stabbing and murdering one person and wounding six others at a Hamburg supermarket in July.
The terrorist wanted to kill as many members of the Christian faith as possible to avenge what he considered to be injustices against Muslims worldwide, federal prosecutors said in a statement over the weekend.
He considered his actions a “contribution to a worldwide jihad,” they added.
“It was important to him to kill as many German nationals of the Christian faith as possible. He wanted his actions to be viewed in the context of an Islamist attack, and understood as a contribution to jihad worldwide,” the statement said.
The 26-year-old suspect, a rejected asylum-seeker identified only as Ahmad A. due to German privacy rules, was charged with one count of murder, six counts of attempted murder and six counts of serious bodily harm.
Prosecutors said investigators had found no credible evidence that Ahmed, who arrived in Germany in 2015, was involved with or had the support of any Muslim terror group, such as the Islamic State (ISIS) group. They also found no evidence that anyone else was involved in the attack.
The suspect carried out the attack on July 28 with a kitchen knife he grabbed from a supermarket shelf. He was then overwhelmed by passers-by and arrested.

By: World Israel News Staff
Following up on government directives to deny anti-Israel activists entry to the country, Interior Minister Aryeh Deri said he will adopt the recommendation of Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan to bar 20 European lawmakers from visiting Israel and the Palestinian Authority next week.
The delegation has 20 participants, including French parliamentarians and mayors, and members of the European Parliament. On the itinerary is a prison visit with terror chief Marwan Barghouti who is serving five life sentences for orchestrating three terror attacks that killed five people.
The BDS Movement attempts to delegitimize and isolate Israel in an effort to advance Palestinian interests. Many leaders of the campaign have publicly affirmed that they seek Israel’s destruction.
In August 2016, Israel established an inter-ministerial team tasked with tracking down and deporting anti-Israel activists who come to the Jewish State for the purpose of harming the country. The team also works to prevent the future entry of activists who operate for the BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) movement.

A deal enabling Israelis to travel to the US without a visa is said to have been met with American demands, including permission for Palestinians with US citizenship to travel from Ben Gurion Airport.
By: Manny Ben-David
An agreement currently being finalized that would enable Israeli citizens to travel to the US without having to go through the cumbersome process of obtaining a visa is reportedly dependent upon the easing of Israeli travel restrictions for Palestinians with US citizenship.
The prospective visa waiver agreement, announced on Monday by Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked following strenuous efforts taken by Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit and Deputy Attorney General for International Law Dr. Roy Schöndorf, would see the eradication of a series of obstacles Israelis are currently required to pass in order to travel to the US, including interviews at the US embassy and the payment of hefty financial sums.

Eizenkot spoke in an interview with the Arabic Elaph website, which was published on Thursday.
The remarks, confirmed in a transcript provided by the Israeli military, reflect the two countries’ increasing alignment over what they see is a rising threat posed by Iran to the region, especially as the war in Syria winds down.

The US opposes a UN resolution that bans pro-Nazi speech, because it contradicts the First Amendment to the constitution. How Will Israel vote under pressure from Trump?
By: AP
The US plans to vote against a yearly resolution at the United Nations (UN) that condemns the glorification of Nazism, State Department officials said Wednesday.
Although it may seem counterintuitive, US officials said free speech protections and other problems with the resolution make it impossible for America to support.
Introduced by Russia, the resolution calls on all UN nations to ban pro-Nazi speech and organizations, and to implement other restrictions on Nazi speech and assembly.
That’s a non-starter in the US, where First Amendment protections guarantee the right to utter almost anything they want — even praise for Adolf Hitler’s followers.

By: AP
A group of 5 Democratic congressmen on Wednesday introduced articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, accusing him of obstruction of justice and other offenses, in a long-shot effort that seems doomed to failure in the Republican-led House.
Indeed, the large majority of Democrats seem intent on having nothing to do with the effort either as lawmakers await the results of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia. Democratic leaders have argued that the impeachment campaign riles up Trump’s GOP base, a critical bloc in next year’s midterm elections.

By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
An aviation engineer working for the Hamas terror organization who was assassinated in Tunisia last December was killed by an Israel hit team using Bosnian passports, Hamas announced Thursday.
In a press conference held in Beirut, Mouhamad Nazal, a member of Hamas’ Politburo, said that Hamas engineer Mohammed Al-Zawari was shot and killed by a Mossad team which was assisted by European nationals.
Assassins shot Mohammed Al-Zawari, 49, multiple times at point-blank when he was sitting in his car near his home in Sfax, southeast of Tunis.
A truck parked near the home blocked the way to his car. Two assailants using weapons equipped with silencers rushed forward and shot him at close range, riddling him with some 20 bullets as he sat in his car.
Tunisian authorities arrested eight nationals on allegations of involvement in the shooting. Four rental cars were used in the killing and two handguns and suppressors were seized during the investigation.

Former concentration camp guards are facing justice more than 70 years after the Holocaust.

By: AP and World Israel News Staff

German prosecutors said Wednesday they have indicted two former Nazi SS guards on charges of being accessories to murder while they worked at a Holocaust concentration camp.

Both men served as guards at the Stutthof concentration camp, located near what is now the Polish city of Gdansk, Dortmund prosecutor Andreas Brendel told The Associated Press.

The indictments were filed against a 93-year-old man from Borken who served in Stutthof from June 1942 to September 1944 and a 92-year-old man from Wuppertal who was there from June 1944 to May 1945.

The charges were filed last week at the state court in Muenster but only announced Wednesday because the defendants first had to be notified. Both deny they had any knowledge of killings at the camp, Brendel said.

Stutthof was a Nazi concentration camp built in a secluded, wet, and wooded area near the small town of Sztutowo in the northern Poland. Stutthof was the first camp outside German borders, in operation from the German invasion in September 1939, and the last camp liberated by the Allies in May 1945.

Jews in Zimbabwe should stay indoors and Israelis should refrain from visiting the country, Israel’s Foreign Ministry said.

Jewish community leaders in Zimbabwe have instructed Jews residing in the African country to seek shelter indoors amid a developing military coup, Israel’s Foreign Ministry said Wednesday.

Zimbabwe’s army said it has taken over the country’s capital of Harare, detained longtime President Robert Mugabe and his wife, and seized control of a state-run broadcaster.

According to the Israeli Foreign Ministry, 172 Jews and Israeli citizens currently live in Zimbabwe, with 108 residing in Harare and 64 in the city of Bulawayo.

Israel’s Ambassador to South Africa Lior Keinan is in direct communication with the Jewish community in Zimbabwe as the situation unfolds.

The Foreign Ministry also issued a travel warning to Israelis, cautioning them against visiting Zimbabwe in the wake of the current disarray in the country.

The warning also suggests that Israelis currently in the southern African Nation remain in their homes “until the situation becomes clear.”

By: World Israel News Staff
Amid warnings of planned terror activity in retaliation for IDF operations against the Islamic Jihad, Israel has set up Iron Dome batteries in several locations in the center of the country.
The IDF believes the terror group is planning an attack on the Jewish state following the Israeli military’s demolition of a Gaza terror tunnel two weeks ago. A total of 14 terrorists were killed in the aftermath of the tunnel collapse, including two senior Islamic Jihad field commanders.
Major General Yoav Mordechai, Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), issued a warning Saturday night in Arabic in a Youtube video to terrorist groups in Gaza and Damascus that Israel will respond to any act of terror.
“We are aware of the plot that the Islamic Jihad has been planning against Israel,” Mordechai declared. “They are playing with fire.”

Jerusalem claims new US/Russian brokered ceasefire deal fails to provide secure Golan border.
By: World Israel News, AP and JNS.org
Israel has voiced sharp objections to a Syrian ceasefire deal because it enables Iranian forces gain a stronghold in areas close to Israel’s borders.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had intensively lobbied in Moscow and Washington for the agreement to create a 37-50 mile secure buffer zone between Israel and Syria, apparently to no avail.
“Israel has no objection to a (peace) agreement in Syria, but we are firmly opposed to such an agreement in which Iran and its proxies will be left with a military presence in Syria,” Netanyahu told Russian President Vladimir Putin in May.
Israeli Minister for Regional Cooperation Tzachi Hanegbi said Sunday that the agreement “does not answer Israel’s unequivocal demands that there will be no developments that bring Iranian or Hezbollah forces closer to Israel’s border with Syria in the north.”

Wonder Woman star reportedly refuses to do the sequel to her blockbuster movie unless accused sexual harasser Brett Rattner dropped as co-producer

Gal Gadot, the Israeli model-turned-actress who became an overnight superstar due to the smashing success of her role in the Wonder Woman movie. Gadot reportedly told Warner Bros. that if they don’t buy out co-producer Brett Rattner’s share she won’t be in the sequel.
Rattner’s production company, Rat-Pac Dune co-financed the hit movie, which grossed over $400 million at the box office, meaning that Rattner made a tidy sum from Gadot’s sparkling performance. Now, it seems, the actress who embodied women’s empowerment on film is taking a stand in real life to say that she will not help enrich a man who has recently been accused by six women of having sexually harassed them.
Rattner also directed hits such as Superman Returns and X-Men: The Last Stand. He has denied all allegations against him, through his lawyer. This doesn’t seem to matter to Gadot. Warner Bros. told Page Six, ““She’s tough and stands by her principles. She also knows the best way to hit people like Brett Ratner is in the wallet. She also knows that Warner Bros. has to side with her on this issue as it develops.”

Israeli life expectancy up 10 years since 1970

Israeli life expectancy up 10 years since 1970(Shutterstock)
OECD reports that in all 35 member countries, average life expectancy has increased by 10.3 years since 1970.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
In its “Health at a Glance 2017” report, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) attributed a significant rise in life expectancy to healthier lifestyles, higher incomes, better education and improved health care.
Relative to OECD countries, life expectancy in Israel is high – 82.1 in 2015. Japan leads at 83.9.
The Central Bureau of Statistics also reports that Israel spends only $2,822 on average per capita. This translates to 7.4% of its Gross Domestic Product (including investments), a number that has been stable for an entire decade.
Among all OECD-member countries, the average spending per capita in 2016 was $4,003 – and in the US it is an eye-popping $9,892 per year, or 17.2% of the gross domestic product.
This is a strong indicator that spending more does not necessarily mean people are getting value for their money. American spending on health has increased much more than in other countries since 1995, says the report, yet life expectancy gains have been smaller. The US sits in the middle of the pack, at 81 years.

More than two dozen people related to Karoline Cohn, a young Jewish Holocaust victim, are to participate in a memorial ceremony for her, a Jewish girl from Frankfurt who was murdered by the Nazis.
He existence had been all but erased by the Nazis, until archeologists last year unearthed at the grounds of the former of the Sobibór Nazi extermination camp in Poland a silver piece of jewelry which bears the words “Mazal Tov” written in Hebrew on one side, and on the other side the Hebrew letter “ה” (God’s name) as well three Stars of David.
Among other personal items found at the death camp were a Star of David necklace, a woman’s watch and a metal charm covered in glass with an engraving of the image of Moses holding the Ten Commandments; on the reverse side of the charm was the inscription of the Jewish prayer “Shema.”
Through the use of Yad Vashem’s online pan-European Deportation Database “Transports to Extinction,” they were able to ascertain that the pendant belonged to Karoline Cohn. It’s almost identical to one belonging to Anne Frank, who was murdered in the Holocaust and is well known for the diary she wrote while in hiding in Amsterdam.

By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
A British anti-Semitism watchdog has called on Prince Charles to rescind a letter in which he made deeply troubling comments about Jewish refugees being a source of Mideastern turmoil and remarks about the power of the “Jewish lobby” in the US.
The Campaign Against Anti-Semitism (CAA) stated on Sunday, after the letter was exposed by the UK’s Daily Mail, that they view the letter’s contents as “disturbing.”
The CAA wrote that “it appears that our future king believed in 1986 that the ‘influx’ of Holocaust survivors to Israel were not ‘Semitic,’ ‘[the] cause [of] great problems’ including terrorism, and should be ‘eliminated,’ presumably through their removal.”
“The letter also appears to endorse the view that Israel is not simply the result of Jewish self-determination in the historic Jewish homeland, but the result of bullying by an all-powerful ‘Jewish lobby’ which holds US presidents in its clutches. We view these comments as unmistakably anti-Semitic,” the CAA wrote.

Iran builds military base in Syria, 30 miles from Israeli border
Print Email 99 Comments
Iran has established a permanent military base in Syria, just 30 miles from Israel’s northern border.
By: World Israel News Staff
Iran’s military is establishing a permanent base inside Syria, just outside Damascus, BBC reported on Friday.
Citing a “Western intelligence source,” the report says that the Iranian military has taken over a compound at a site used by the Syrian army outside El-Kiswah, south of the Syrian capital and just a short 50 km from the border with Israel.
Satellite images of the purported site, commissioned by the BBC, appear to show construction activity at the site between January and October this year. The images show a series of two dozen large and low-rise buildings, likely for housing soldiers and vehicles.
The images do not reveal any signs of large or unconventional weaponry.
Independent analysis of the images says the facility is military in nature, but the BBC noted that it is impossible to independently verify the purpose of the site and the presence of the Iranian military.
Iran and its proxies have been supporting the Assad regime in the Syrian civil war and have deployed a force estimated at 500 Iranian army soldiers, 5,000 Hezbollah terrorists and several thousand guerrillas from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq.

Some 35,000 Jews were in Hebron over the weekend to celebrate Shabbat Chayei Sarah, during which Abraham’s purchase of the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron is recounted in the weekly Torah portion.
Shabbat Chayei Sarah has become a day for connecting world Jewry to the Jewish community in Hebron.
The Torah records that Abraham negotiated for and purchased the Cave of the Patriarchs from Efron the Hittite, a local resident. Abraham insisted on purchasing the cave because he wanted the Tomb of the Patriarchs to be preserved as Jewish property for generations to come.
For this annual event, Jewish residents of Hebron open their homes to visitors.
Thousands of Jews descended on the 2,000 year-old structure for Sabbath prayers, which included vibrant singing and dancing. The streets of Hebron and the suburb of Kiryat Arba were filled with tents and caravans.
Arutz-7 reported that Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel, Social Equality Minister Gila Gamliel, Environmental Protection Minister Zeev Elkin, Deputy Defense Minister Rabbi Eli Ben Dahan, Members of Knesset, rabbis, public figures, and guests from Israel and abroad all converged on the holy city. Uri Karzan, director of the Jewish community in Hebron, said the number of participants this year was at an “all-time high.”

The number of casualties following a powerful 7.2 magnitude earthquake near the Iran-Iraq border is unconfirmed. Tremors were reported in Israel.
By: AP and World Israel News Staff
Iranian state TV says a 7.2-magnitude earthquake has jolted the region near the border between Iran and Iraq. The number of casualties varies according to various reports, with Sky News saying at least 10 were killed.
Faramarz Akbari, Ghasr-e Shirin’s governor, said that six people had died and scores more injured, according to the state-run IRNA news agency.
The U.S. Geological Survey confirmed the quake on its website, placing its epicenter at around 32km (19 miles) outside the Iraqi city of Halabja, and issuing an “orange” alert for “shaking-related fatalities and economic losses.”
The semi-official Iranian ILNA news agency reported that at least 14 provinces had been impacted by the earthquake.

By: TPS and World Israel News
Shortly before noon on Saturday, a UAV was intercepted by a Patriot missile as it approached the border between Israel and Syria on the Golan Heights, an IDF spokesman said.
The drone was flying over the demilitarized zone on the Northern Golan Heights. Apparently it was a Syrian army drone on an intelligence-collecting mission, the IDF said.
There have been several such incidents in recent months.
“Israel will not tolerate any violation of its sovereignty and will react forcefully to any provocation,” Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said in response to the incident. “We see the Syrian regime as responsible for any violation of Israel’s sovereignty. We call on the Syrian regime to restrain all factions operating from within its territory. We will not allow the Shi’ite axis to become entrenched in Syria and use it as a base for forward operations.”

NYT: Trump’s Mideast team is drafting a new Middle East peace plan.
By: World Israel News Staff
President Donald Trump and his team have begun to draft a peace plan of their own to resolve the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, the New York Times reported Saturday.
Trump’s Mideast envoy Jason Greenblatt and Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law, have visited the Middle East several times and have met with both sides over the past 10 months, and are now reportedly at the stage of drafting a document which they hope to present by early next year.
Greenblatt told The Times that the US has “spent a lot of time listening to and engaging with the Israelis, Palestinians and key regional leaders over the past few months to help reach an enduring peace deal.” Greenblatt cautioned: “The US is not going to put an artificial timeline on the development or presentation of any specific ideas. Our goal is to facilitate, not dictate, a lasting peace agreement to improve the lives of Israelis and Palestinians and security across the region.”
Trump’s team sees what the Times described as “the convergence of factors that make the moment ripe,” including a willingness by Arab states to solve the Palestinian issue so that they can refocus their attention on Iran, which they consider a major threat.

“It should be clear: Any retaliation of any kind by the Islamic Jihad will be met with a powerful and determined Israeli response,” Israel warned.
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
The IDF issued an unusual and stern message to the Islamic Jihad terror group, warning of dire repercussions if it attacks Israel.
The IDF estimates that the Islamic Jihad is planning an attack on the Jewish State following the IDF’s demolition of a terror tunnel some two weeks ago. A total of 14 terrorists were killed in the aftermath of the tunnel collapse, including two senior Islamic Jihad field commanders.
The Palestinian terror group has vowed revenge.
In a message in Arabic published on Saturday, Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) head Maj. Gen. Yoav Mordechai warned the Islamic Jihad to abandon plans to take revenge on Israel, saying that Israel knows of their plans and is prepared to repel them.
“It should be clear: Any retaliation of any kind by the Islamic Jihad will be met with a powerful and determined Israeli response, not only against the Jihad, but also against Hamas,” the Mordechai warned.

By: AP and World Israel News
Tens of thousands of Gaza Palestinians marked the 13th anniversary of the Palestinian arch-terrorist Yasser Arafat’s death on Saturday for the first time since the Islamic Hamas group seized the territory a decade ago.
In the wake of a brewing reconciliation between Hamas and the Fatah party Arafat founded, Fatah supporters flocked to al-Saraya Square in Gaza City from all over the coastal enclave to commemorate the event, waving their yellow flag, raising posters of Arafat and donning his trademark kaffiyeh headgear.
Arafat, head of the terrorist Palestine Liberation Organization and president of the Palestinian Authority (PA), died in 2004 at a hospital in France after two years of an Israeli siege on his headquarters in Ramallah. Palestinians accuse Israel of poisoning him but offer no proof.

By: World Israel News Staff
The United Kingdom’s Prince Charles alleged that an “influx of foreign Jews” was one of the causes of strife in the Middle East, while expressing his hopes that the “American Jewish lobby” would be confronted.
The British Daily Mail on Sunday revealed leaked correspondence between Prince Charles and his mentor, the Afrikaner explorer Laurens van der Post showing that the heir to the British throne blamed the “the great problems” in the Middle East region on the post-Holocaust immigration of European Jews to Israel.
Prince Charles penned the letter in 1986 after official visits to Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Qatar, which he called “fascinating” and during which he “learned a lot about the Middle East and Arab outlook.”
“I now begin to understand better their (Arabs’) point of view about Israel,” he wrote, “Never realized they see it as a US colony. I now appreciate that … it is the influx of foreign, European Jews (especially from Poland, they say) which has helped to cause great problems.”
Prince Charles also expressed hope that a US president would “have the courage to stand up and take on the Jewish lobby.” The US president at the time was Ronald Reagan.
Stephen Pollard, an editor of the Jewish Chronicle, criticized the prince’s use of the term “Jewish lobby” as anti-Semitic and said his views were “the absolute classic Arab explanation of the problems in the Middle East

By: AP and World Israel News Staff
Berlin police are investigating the disappearance of more than a dozen Holocaust memorials called “Stolpersteine” (stumbling stones), which are small brass plaques placed in the sidewalks outside of the former homes of Jews and other victims of the Nazis in the German capital.
Police said Monday that residents in the central Neukoelln district reported the small memorials missing from several streets.
A local politician said he suspects members of the far-right are behind the offensive act.
The project was initiated in 1996 by artist Gunter Demnig, and seeks to bring back the names of Jews and others to places where they once lived. Each square plaque carries the name of the victim and information like when they were deported and where they were killed.
“It’s upsetting and it hurts,” Demnig said on Tuesday, according to Germany’s Deutsche Welle.
There are more than 60,000 of the plaques installed across Europe.

Israel has set up the Iron Dome defense system in the center of the country in anticipation of attacks by the Islamic Jihad and other terror groups.

By: World Israel News Staff

Amid warnings of planned terror activity in retaliation for IDF operations against the Islamic Jihad, Israel has set up Iron Dome batteries in several locations in the center of the country.

The IDF believes the terror group is planning an attack on the Jewish state following the Israeli military’s demolition of a Gaza terror tunnel two weeks ago. A total of 14 terrorists were killed in the aftermath of the tunnel collapse, including two senior Islamic Jihad field commanders.

Major General Yoav Mordechai, Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), issued a warning Saturday night in Arabic in a Youtube video to terrorist groups in Gaza and Damascus that Israel will respond to any act of terror.

“We are aware of the plot that the Islamic Jihad has been planning against Israel,” Mordechai declared. “They are playing with fire.”

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also warned Palestinian terror groups not to attack Israel. “We will take a very firm stance against anyone who tries to attack us or attacks us from any area. I mean any source: rogue factions, organizations – anyone,” he asserted Sunday morning at the weekly cabinet meeting.

In response, the Islamic Jihad vowed to carry out attacks, calling the Israeli threats an “act of war.”

Adding to the tension, IDF forces on Sunday night apprehended a senior Islamic Jihad operative in the Palestinian town of Araba, in the Jenin area.

Iran builds military base in Syria, 30 miles from Israeli border
Iran has established a permanent military base in Syria, just 30 miles from Israel’s northern border.
By: World Israel News Staff
Iran’s military is establishing a permanent base inside Syria, just outside Damascus, BBC reported on Friday.
Citing a “Western intelligence source,” the report says that the Iranian military has taken over a compound at a site used by the Syrian army outside El-Kiswah, south of the Syrian capital and just a short 50 km from the border with Israel.
Satellite images of the purported site, commissioned by the BBC, appear to show construction activity at the site between January and October this year. The images show a series of two dozen large and low-rise buildings, likely for housing soldiers and vehicles.
The images do not reveal any signs of large or unconventional weaponry
Independent analysis of the images says the facility is military in nature, but the BBC noted that it is impossible to independently verify the purpose of the site and the presence of the Iranian military.

By: World Israel News Staff
Some 35,000 Jews were in Hebron over the weekend to celebrate Shabbat Chayei Sarah, during which Abraham’s purchase of the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron is recounted in the weekly Torah portion.
Shabbat Chayei Sarah has become a day for connecting world Jewry to the Jewish community in Hebron.
The Torah records that Abraham negotiated for and purchased the Cave of the Patriarchs from Efron the Hittite, a local resident. Abraham insisted on purchasing the cave because he wanted the Tomb of the Patriarchs to be preserved as Jewish property for generations to come.
For this annual event, Jewish residents of Hebron open their homes to visitors.
Thousands of Jews descended on the 2,000 year-old structure for Sabbath prayers, which included vibrant singing and dancing. The streets of Hebron and the suburb of Kiryat Arba were filled with tents and caravans.
Arutz-7 reported that Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel, Social Equality Minister Gila Gamliel, Environmental Protection Minister Zeev Elkin, Deputy Defense Minister Rabbi Eli Ben Dahan, Members of Knesset, rabbis, public figures, and guests from Israel and abroad all converged on the holy city. Uri Karzan, director of the Jewish community in Hebron, said the number of participants this year was at an “all-time high.”

By: AP and World Israel News Staff
Iranian state TV says a 7.2-magnitude earthquake has jolted the region near the border between Iran and Iraq. The number of casualties varies according to various reports, with Sky News saying at least 10 were killed.
Faramarz Akbari, Ghasr-e Shirin’s governor, said that six people had died and scores more injured, according to the state-run IRNA news agency.
The U.S. Geological Survey confirmed the quake on its website, placing its epicenter at around 32km (19 miles) outside the Iraqi city of Halabja, and issuing an “orange” alert for “shaking-related fatalities and economic losses.”
The semi-official Iranian ILNA news agency reported that at least 14 provinces had been impacted by the earthquake.
Iranian social media was abuzz with posts of people evacuating their homes, especially from the cities of Ghasr-e Shirin (near Iraqi border) and Kermanshah.
Esmail Najar, head of Iran’s National Disaster Management Organization, said “some injured people might be buried under the rubble in Ghasr-e Shirin”.
Iran is prone to near daily quakes as it sits on many major fault lines. In 2003, a 6.6 magnitude flattened the historic city of Bam, killing 26,000 people.
The impact was felt in cities across the Middle East, including Israel, where residents along the coast said they felt the tremors.

While Trump’s team is voicing optimism, nothing has significantly changed so far to indicate that a breakthrough is possible.
Dennis Ross, the veteran Middle East peace negotiator, said Trump’s team has “done a very good job of presenting themselves as having listened” and is now “taken seriously” in the region, the Times reported.
Trump has stated on several occasions that achieving peace between Israel and the Palestinians would be “the ultimate deal.” During a press conference with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House in February Trump raised eyebrows when he said, “I’m looking at two states and one state. And I like the one that both parties like.”

Pollard described the letter as “jaw-droppingly shocking,” adding “that they [the Prince’s comments] come from the heir to the throne is unsettling, to put it mildly.”
A spokeswoman for Prince Charles explained the incident, saying the letter “clearly stated that these were not the Prince’s own views about Arab-Israeli issues but represented the opinions of some of those he met during his visit which he was keen to interrogate.”
“He has built a proven track record of support for both Jewish and Arab communities around the world and has a long history of promoting interfaith dialogue and cultural understanding,” she noted.

Netanyahu demands 2 billion shekels from Jewish National Fund

Netanyahu demands 2 billion shekels from Jewish National FundBenjamin Netanyahu with a JNF collection box. (
In an escalating battle between the Jewish National Fund and the Israeli government, the fate of 2 billion shekels hangs in the balance.
By: Ebin Sandler, World Israel News
Historically, the Jewish National Fund (JNF) pioneered efforts to aid the burgeoning State of Israel, purchasing and developing land in the Ottoman Empire’s territories which would later form large swaths of the modern Jewish state. The JNF is also well known for planting trees, building reservoirs, and establishing parks in Israel, and is a major land owner.
The current conflict between the JNF and the government centers on advancing legislation that requires the organization to transfer 2 billion shekels (around $570 million) to the state. On Tuesday, members of the Knesset approved the legislation, paving the way for the government to force the JNF to place 80 percent of its earnings under direct state control, or risk being disqualified for tax exempt status.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also declared his support for the measure, justifying it based on the “needs” of the state.
“The Jewish National Fund sells land every year for billions of shekels. It is very important that this money be channeled to the needs of the State of Israel, these needs cannot wait,” said Netanyahu according to TPS. “I respect the work the organization has done for the State of Israel and the Jewish people since its inception in 1901, but today it is clearer than ever that the future of the Jewish people is tied to the future of the State of Israel.

Saudi Arabia on Monday accused the Shiite Hezbollah terror group of being behind Saturday’s missile attack on one of the kingdom’s major international airports on the outskirts of Riyadh.
The missile, fired towards King Khalid International Airport, was shot down by the Saudi air defense forces, with fragments landing in an uninhabited area north of the capital.
Yemen’s Houthi rebels, supported by Iran, claimed responsibility for the attack. However, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel bin Ahmed al-Jubeir told CNN on Monday that “it was an Iranian missile, launched by Hezbollah, from territory occupied by the Houthis in Yemen.”

Opinion: Britain should apologize for undermining the Balfour Declaration

Opinion: Britain should apologize for undermining the Balfour DeclarationJames Arthur Balfour (Wikipedia)
Anti-Israel activists demand that Britain apologize for the Balfour Declaration, but in fact they should apologize for undermining the historic document.
By: Daniel Krygier, Political Analyst, World Israel News
Israel’s enemies demand that Britain ”apologize” for the Balfour Declaration. According to the false anti-Zionist narrative, Britain gave the Jews a land that belonged to the Arabs.
The centennial of the British Foreign Secretary James Arthur Balfour’s famous letter to Jewish leader Lord Rothschild in 1917 serves as a good opportunity to revisit history and set the record straight concerning Britain, the Jews and the Arabs.
First, the British never gave Israel to the Jews. Second, the Jews are the indigenous population of Israel. Third, there was never an Arab country or state in the land of Israel, and much of the local Arabs were recent immigrants from Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and Egypt.
The ink on the Balfour Declaration had barely dried before Balfour’s Christian Zionism was replaced with British anti-Zionism that appeased extremist Arab leaders at the expense of the Jewish people. Not only did Britain not create modern Israel; post-Balfour London did everything in its power to prevent Israel’s rebirth. The support for a Jewish national homeland was replaced by the infamous White Paper in 1939 that undermined and postponed the reestablishment of the Jewish state by a decade. As a result of London’s cynical anti-Jewish policies, millions of Jews perished in the Holocaust, since they had nowhere to go and Britain prevented Jews from returning to their ancestral homeland. If Britain should apologize for anything relating to the Balfour Declaration, it should be for London’s failure to implement its promise to Lord Rothschild and the Jewish people.

Alberto Nisman, who was investigating the 1994 car bombing of the Jewish center in Buenos Aires and the Iranian angle before he was found dead in his home in 2015, was murdered, a new probe has revealed.
By: AP
A new police report has dramatically revived one of the greatest criminal mysteries in Argentine history — the possible murder of a crusading prosecutor that has roused grave suspicions about a president and added to doubts about the probe into the country’s most deadly terrorist attack.
An investigation by the country’s border police agency has concluded that the man who led that terror probe was murdered just four days after he formally accused then-President Cristina Fernandez of covering up the role of former Iranian officials who had been charged in the 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center that killed 85 people.

For the first time, a Houthi missile came close to hitting a heavily populated area in Saudi Arabia.
Saudi Arabian forces intercepted a ballistic missile fired Saturday by rebels in Yemen toward one of the kingdom’s major international airports on the outskirts of the capital, Riyadh.
The missile fire drew an immediate rebuke from President Donald Trump, who blamed Iran in part for the attack.
The missile was fired across Saudi Arabia’s southern border by Yemen’s Shiite Houthi rebels, according to several Houthi-owned media outlets, including Al-Masirah and SABA. The rebels are at war with the kingdom, and are supported and armed by Iran.
Saudi Arabia said the missile was shot down by its air defense forces, with fragments of the missile landing in an uninhabited area north of the capital. Saudi Arabia’s Civil Aviation Authority said the missile did not cause any damage to King Khalid International Airport and that flights were not disrupted.
This is the first time that a Houthi missile has come so close to a heavily populated area, and it appears to be the farthest that such a missile has reached inside Saudi Arabia.

Report: Weinstein hired ex-Mossad agents to investigate accusations

Report: Weinstein hired ex-Mossad agents to investigate accusationsHarvey Weinstein. (Photo by Charles Sykes/Invision/AP
The embattled Hollywood producer engaged a firm staffed by former Israeli secret service agents to uncover information regarding mounting claims of sexual assault and abuse.
By: World Israel News Staff
On Monday, The New Yorker published a lengthy feature detailing film executive Harvey Weinstein’s efforts to track and investigate actresses, journalists and other individuals with information related to sexual assault and rape accusations. Among the acclaimed actresses that have leveled these accusations are Rose McGowan and Anna Sciorra, in addition to a number of other women who have made public their interactions with the well-known Hollywood producer.
According to The New Yorker, Weinstein hired private investigators from a firm called Black Cube, including individuals described as “ex-Mossad agents,” who developed an elaborate ruse and background story to gain the confidence of McGowan. The investigators apparently sought to glean information regarding both the accusations themselves and details related to a report slated to appear in the New York Times.
One such investigator apparently intimated that she herself had an allegation against Weinstein in order to gain entree to journalists investigating the matter. Other tactics reportedly included using journalists to directly solicit information from alleged Weinstein victims.
Ultimately, The New Yorker report maintains that Weinstein’s goal was to suppress allegations of sexual harassment and assault. As evidence of this plan, the report refers to a July 2017 contract between Weinstein and Black Cube with the stated aim of stopping the publication of abuse allegations that eventually were published in The New Yorker and the New York Times.

A police complaint on vandalism has led to the exposure of an Arab terror plot.
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
A complaint submitted to the police on acts of vandalism has led to the exposure of an Arab terror plot, Israel’s police announced Tuesday.
Police were recently notified that several buildings under construction in Jerusalem’s Pisgat Zeev neighborhood were heavily damaged, including harm to the electrical system. The damage is estimated at tens of thousands of shekels.
The police launched an investigation into the vandalism, and subsequently arrested a suspect, a 32-year-old Arab from the neighborhood of Shua’fat.
Security forces who conducted the arrest found he had Hamas flags in his home.
The suspect initially denied the charges, but then admitted he had been planning attacks against Israelis as revenge over the incarceration of his two brothers in Israeli prisons for acts of terrorism.
Police believe that beyond the damage the suspect caused, he also planned to attack Israeli security personnel.

An historic agreement was signed in Jerusalem on Tuesday between the National Library of Israel (NLI), the Russian State Library in Moscow and the Moscow-based Peri Foundation, which will enable the public to access the Günzburg Collection, which contains some of the most important Hebrew manuscripts and books in the world.
Through the support of the Peri Foundation, 2,000 manuscripts and thousands of books in the collection will be digitized, making these significant works accessible online. The originals will remain in Russia.
The Günzburg Collection was started in the 19th century by Joseph Günzburg and continued by his son Horace. The family manuscript collection grew significantly towards the end of the century when Joseph’s grandson, Baron David Günzburg, acquired over half of the manuscripts in the current collection.

Netanyahu: Bodies of 5 terrorists to be used in exchanges with Hamas, ‘No free gifts’IDF forces on the border with Gaza. (
The IDF has recovered the bodies of five Palestinian terrorists killed after it destroyed a terror tunnel. They will be used as leverage in possible future exchanges with Hamas.
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
The IDF uncovered and retrieved the bodies of five Palestinian terrorists who were killed last Monday during the IDF’s demolition of a terror tunnel dug from the Gaza Strip into Israel.
“During ongoing operation to neutralize the terror tunnel that was targeted in Israel on 10/30, the IDF uncovered the bodies of 5 terrorists,” an IDF spokesman tweeted on Sunday .
The five terrorists are believed to be low-ranking foot soldiers and members of Islamic Jihad, the terror group that dug the tunnel.
A total of 14 terrorists were killed in the aftermath of the tunnel collapse, including two senior field commanders.
Islamic Jihad has vowed revenge.
Last week, Israel denied a request by the Hamas terror group, through the Red Cross, to approach the site and recover the bodies.

Princeton’s Center for Jewish Life cancels event with Israel’s deputy FMDeputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely (Hadas
In the latest attack on free speech by pro-Palestinian activists on American campuses, an address by an Israeli diplomat was canceled.
By Adina Katz, World Israel News
The Center for Jewish Life (CJL) at Princeton University has canceled a campus lecture by Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely at the last minute, caving in to pressure from the Alliance of Jewish Progressives and Allies, which takes a pro-Palestinian stand.
The lecture was scheduled for Tuesday at Princeton’s Hillel House. She was notified just a day earlier.
In a letter published Sunday in the Daily Princetonian, the group stated that to date, the CJL “has indefinitely postponed” Hotovely’s talk “until it is vetted through the CJL’s Israel Advisory Committee.”
“Hotovely’s work causes irreparable damage to the prospects of a peaceful solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict,” the letter claims, referring to her policy statements as “racist.”
The pro-Palestinian group objects to her support for construction of Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, including her Zionist proclamation that “This land is ours. All of it is ours. We did not come here to apologize for that.”
According to the letter, “Hotovely’s alarming vision for the future of the region is coupled with a complete rejection of Palestinian history and connection to key sites such as the Haram al-Sharif. In a recent speech in the Israeli Parliament, Hotovely spoke directly to Palestinian Members of Knesset, saying, ‘You are thieves of history. Your history books are empty, and you are trying to co-opt Jewish history and Islamicize it.’”

Expert: Iran-North Korea nuclear collaboration is Israel’s ‘worst nightmare’(Youtube)
“There are more differences between North Korea and Iran than there are similarities, but both countries are determined nuclear proliferators.”
By: Andrew Friedman/TPS
An international commitment to a failed model of diplomacy, coupled with loopholes in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), otherwise known as the Iran nuclear deal, could create a fertile breeding ground for Iran to collaborate with North Korea to achieve nuclear capability without technically violating the 2015 nuclear deal, a panel of experts said Monday.
“There are more differences between North Korea and Iran than there are similarities, but both countries are determined nuclear proliferators,” said Dr. Emily B. Landau, head of the Arms Control Program at the Institute for National Security Studies at Tel Aviv University, told a conference titled “No good options on North Korea? Regional and global implications from an Israeli perspective.”

After the indictment of several members of Trump’s campaign staff, rumors are circulating that the president’s trust in his son-in-law and senior adviser is waning.
By: World Israel News Staff
While accusations related to US President Donald Trump’s connections to Russia have remained a fixation of major media outlets, the indictment of key campaign staff has reportedly resulted in Trump’s questioning the quality of advice offered by his son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner. Trump allegedly pointed a finger at Kushner for his role in events that led to indictments of former campaign manager Paul Manafort and former defense secretary Robert Gates, according to a report published last week by Vanity Fair.
Specifically, Trump reportedly took issue with Kushner’s advice regarding the termination of former national security adviser Mike Flynn and former FBI director James Comey, which led to the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller. Under Mueller’s direction, the Russia investigation produced the indictments of Manafort and Gates.

The Israeli Air Force (IAF) is hosting air forces from seven nations, in the largest air drill in the Jewish state’s history.
Some 100 aircraft and several hundred pilots and support crews from the US, Greece, Poland, France, Germany, India and Italy will arrived in Israel for Blue Flag. Officers and attaches from nearly 40 countries are also attending as observers.
Established in 2013, Blue Flag is a biennial, two-week drill aimed at improving the type of planning, targeting and coordinated command and control required by coalitions operating together.
The goal of the exercise, conducted out of Uvda Airbase in the south, is to simulate extreme combat scenarios and to fly in coalition as realistically as possible.
Israel’s Blue Flag does not pit forces against one another; rather, it stresses cooperation over competition.
Among the seven participants, India, France and Germany are attending Blue Flag for the first time.
“The ‘Blue-Flag’ exercise is a significant quantum leap in our ability to hold an exercise and provide our multi-national participants with a quality training experience as performed in Israel,” said Lt. Col. Nadav, Commander of the 133rd Squadron (“Knights of the Twin Tail”), which operates “Baz” (F-15) fighter jets and is leading the exercise.

Shmuel Veffer, President and CEO of Galilee Green, a premier boutique olive oil company located in Yavne’el, a rural community in the Galilee, got a nasty surprise last Thursday afternoon. A group of loyal customers from Cullman, Alabama, sent him a private Facebook message informing him that his company’s Facebook page had been filled with hateful posts and one-star reviews. The latter endangered his business, as it brought down his page rating from 4.9 stars to just three within a few hours.
Some clients were intimidated by the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) assault. “I’m sorry, but I had to delete my review from your page,” one customer wrote. “I hated to do that, but comments on my review were piling up and were threatening, and they were going to inspect and discredit my own Facebook page like stalkers. I will gladly post another review in the future when you have this under control.

Israel’s Ministry of Defense has constructed a new 30-meter high (98 ft.) barrier along parts of its border with Jordan, introducing a unique solution developed for the protection of the new Ilan and Asaf Ramon Airport, situated just north of Eilat.
Placed on dozens of tall pillars, the fence was designed to protect aircraft against a range threats, including ballistic projectiles, during take-off or landing at the airport. A 4.5 kilometer long fence and technological means are also included in its development.
The construction of the innovative barrier is part of Israel’s building of the eastern fence along the Israel-Jordan border between Eilat and the sands of Samar, at a cost of some NIS 300 million.

A new book by former DNC interim chair Donna Brazile says Hillary Clinton had ethically dubious influence over the governing body long before her nomination.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
Former Democratic National Committee (DNC) chair Donna Brazile’s book, “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House,” comes out Tuesday. However, it was excerpted by Politico online last Thursday — and the reverberations are still being felt.
According to the book, the DNC was broke long before the Democratic primary campaign began, and both of Clinton’s campaign funds (Hillary for America and the Hillary Victory Fund — its joint fundraising vehicle with the DNC) had taken care of most of the debt (about $10 million).
According to the deal, Brazile writes, in exchange for the funding, Clinton would control the party’s finances, staffing, strategy — and all the money raised, whether by the state parties, the DNC or the campaign.
This “Victory Fund Agreement,” however, was signed in August 2015, almost a year before Clinton officially had the nomination. Customarily, this kind of control over the party apparatus is given to the nominee only after the convention. The Clinton campaign got it much sooner.

Another escalation? Saudi Arabia says that an attack by Iran-backed rebels on its capital is “an act of war.”
By: AP and World Israel News Staff
Saudi Arabia is blaming Iran for Yemen-based Shiite rebels launching a ballistic missile at its capital Riyadh, warning the attack could be considered “an act of war.”
“Iran’s role and its direct command of its Houthi proxy in this matter constitutes a clear act of aggression that targets neighboring countries, and threatens peace and security in the region and globally,” a statement released on Monday by the Saudi-led coalition said.
“Therefore, the coalition’s command considers this a blatant act of military aggression by the Iranian regime, and could rise to be considered as an act of war against the kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” the statement cautioned.
“The coalition command also affirms that the Kingdom reserves its right to respond to Iran in the appropriate time and manner,” the statement concluded.
Iran has backed the Houthi rebels, but denies arming them. There was no immediate response from Iran over the Saudi threat.
Following the attack on one of Saudi Arabia’s main airports, the Saudi-led coalition announced it has closed the air, land and sea ports in Yemen.

Multiple people were killed and wounded in a shooting attack in a church in a small Texas community.
By: AP
A man opened fire inside of a church in a small South Texas community on Sunday, killing multiple people and wounding others before being “taken down,” authorities said.

Authorities said a man walked into the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs and began shooting, killing multiple people and wounding others. Wilson County Sheriff Joe Tackitt told the Wilson County News that the shooter had been “taken down,” but it’s not known how the shooter died.

Authorities haven’t said how many were killed or wounded, but a Wilson County commissioner, Albert Gamez, told cable news outlets that emergency officials told him more than 20 people were slain and more than 20 others were wounded, though those figures hadn’t been confirmed.

Video on KSAT television showed first responders taking a stretcher from the church to a waiting AirLife helicopter. Some victims were taken by medical helicopter to the Brooke Army Medical Center, KSAT said.

A woman who lives about 10 minutes away from Sutherland Springs in Floresville and was monitoring the chaos on a police scanner and in Facebook community groups, said that everyone knows everyone in the sparsely populated county.

“This is horrific for our tiny little tight-knit town,” said Alena Berlanga. “Everybody’s going to be affected and everybody knows someone who’s affected,” she said.

President Donald Trump tweeted from Japan, where is is on an Asian trip, that he was monitoring the situation following the shooting. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott called the shooting an “evil act,” and promised “more details” from the state’s Department of Public Safety soon.
Sutherland Springs is 30 miles (48 kilometers) southeast of San Antonio.

Netanyahu called on the international community to counter the Islamic Republic’s aggression following the resignation of Lebanon’s Prime Minister.
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reacted to the dramatic resignation of Lebanese Prime Minister Saed Hariri on Saturday, saying it was “a wake-up call to the international community to take action against Iranian aggression.”
Hariri, in an address made in Saudi Arabia, announced he was resigning his position as prime minister of the country, citing Iran’s hostility and meddling in his country.
Iran generated “disorder and destruction” in Lebanon and meddled in its internal affairs as well as in other Arab countries, Hariri charged.
Referring to the Hezbollah terror group, which is based in Lebanon and supported and funded by Iran, Hariri said, “Iran’s arm … has managed to impose a fait accompli on Lebanon through the power of its weapons.”
“They have built a state within a state,” he declared.
“I say to Iran and its allies – you have lost in your efforts to meddle in the affairs of the Arab world,” Hariri continued, adding that the region “will rise again, and the hands that you have wickedly extended into it will be cut off.”
Hariri also said there was a recent attempt to assassinate him. His father Rafiq Hariri was killed by Hezbollah in 2005.
“The resignation of Lebanese Prime Minister Hariri and his remarks are a wake-up call to the international community to take action against the Iranian aggression that is trying to turn Syria into a second Lebanon,” Netanyahu stated. Iran has been working to establish a military presence in Syria.
“This aggression endangers not only Israel but the entire Middle East. The international community needs to unite and confront this aggression,” the Israeli premier demanded.
Iran denied Hariri’s charges and said his registration was a US and “Zionist” plot against the Islamic Republic.
“The resigning Lebanese prime minister’s repetition of the unrealistic and unfounded accusations of the Zionists, Saudis and Americans against Iran is an indication that this resignation is a new scenario for creating tension in Lebanon and the region,” Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi stated. “But we believe that the resistant people of Lebanon will pass this stage easily.
“The sudden resignation of Mr. Hariri and his statement in another country is not only surprising and regrettable but is also an indication of his playing a game designed by those who want ill for the region, and the winner of this game is not Arabic or Muslim countries but the Zionists,” he charged.

Dozens of Palestinians, accompanied by extreme leftists, came very close to a nearby Jewish community. A clash ensued.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
With the permission of the IDF and accompanied by the extreme-leftist organization Rabbis for Human Rights (RHR), dozens of Palestinians from the northern Samaria town of Huwara arrived Sunday morning at the Jewish community of Yitzhar, supposedly to harvest olives.
Residents of Yitzhar came to protest their arrival. As reported by Arutz-7, Uriah Cohen, head of Yitzhar’s secretariat, pointed out that the olive harvest has been used as a cover for many terrorist acts over the years. “Unfortunately,” he said, “it seems that the security establishment is yielding to the unacceptable and dangerous pressure of extreme leftist organizations.”
Six years ago, an Arab “olive farmer” near Itamar took advantage of the harvest to take note of the town’s security arrangements. Later, he later returned with a cousin and murdered Ehud and Ruth Fogel and three of their six children as they lay sleeping in their beds – one of them just three months old.
According to Sunday’s RHR statement, the Israelis “attacked” the Palestinians and “set fire to the orchard in Hawara, next to Yizhar.”
An IDF spokesman said a fight broke out, security personnel separated the two sides, and the Palestinians were quickly allowed to continue picking olives.
The Israel Police, which also had officers at the scene, did not make any arrests. “There was no attack, but rather it was an argument. The IDF broke it up,” a spokesperson said.

“We must not surrender to anti-Semitism, we must fight it,” Rivlin told the Spanish Jewish community, which is experiencing a rise in anti-Jewish sentiment.
By: World Israel News Staff
President Reuven Rivlin on Sunday evening unveiled a plaque to be affixed to the entrance of Madrid’s Ibn Gavriol school, commemorating his state visit to Spain and marking 100 years since the reestablishment of the Jewish community in that country since the expulsion of 1492.
“The community here today is a magnificent community, with tens of thousands of members of all ages. Jewish life on the Iberian Peninsula, which was cut off more than 500 years ago, is now full of life, and this is a great joy. This is a great victory for history and the spirit of the Jewish people.”
Rivlin noted, however, a significant rise in anti-Semitism in Spain in recent years. “We must not surrender to anti-Semitism, we must fight it,” he said, adding that he was “pleased that the Spanish government is taking steps in legislation and enforcement against this ugly phenomenon.”
“We must not be ashamed of or hide our identity,” the Israeli head of state declared. “We must not be ashamed of the connection between the State of Israel and the Jewish people. I know that there are concerns, and fears of terrorism against Jews, and of anti-Semitism which poses as criticism against Israel. We will fight these challenges together.”
‘We Are Brothers, Let Us Stand Together’
“The State of Israel today operates an extensive network to combat anti-Semitism disguised as the delegitimization of Israel, to fight hatred of Jews disguised as a criticism of Israeli government policy: these bodies are at your disposal, they are also here for you,” Rivlin stated.
Furthermore, “We love and respect every Jew, wherever they are, but you will be welcome always should you choose to come to your home in the State of Israel.”
He concluded by thanking the community for their warm welcome and said, “We are brothers, let us stand together.”
Isaac Querub, president of the Federation of Jewish Communities in Spain, conceded that the situation has become difficult, noting the social and economic instability in the country. “We need Israel, and Israel can always rely on our support,” he said.

Drastic increase in anti-Semitic incidents in US in 2017, ADL reports

The year 2017 has been fraught with anti-Semitic incidents in the US, an ADL report shows, although it includes bomb threats that turned out to be a hoax.
The number of anti-Semitic incidents in the US remains significantly higher in 2017 compared to 2016, according to new data released on Thursday by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL).
In addition to the significant bump in the first quarter of this year, there was also a distinct increase after the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Va., in August, the ADL reported.
In its latest Audit of Anti-Semitic Incidents, the ADL shows that from January 1 to September 30 there were 1,299 anti-Semitic incidents across the US, including physical assaults, vandalism, and attacks on Jewish institutions. This represents a 67 percent increase over the same period last year and already exceeds the 1,266 incidents reported throughout 2016.
Of the incidents reported, there has been a disturbingly high number of anti-Semitic bullying and vandalism incidents in K-12 schools and on college campuses across the US.
Compared to 2016, each of the first three quarters of 2017 had a higher number of incidents compared to the previous ear. These incidents peaked during the first quarter of 2017, and the pace slowed somewhat in the second and third quarters, the report shows.
Of all 1,299 anti-Semitic incidents so far in 2017, a majority – 667 – occurred in the first quarter of the year. An additional 632 anti-Semitic incidents were reported in the second and third quarters of the year, surpassing the 488 reported during the same period in 2016.
From the beginning of 2017 until September, there were 703 incidents of harassment, including 162 bomb threats against Jewish institutions, most of them perpetrated by an Israeli; 584 incidents of vandalism, including 52 against Jewish institutions and 12 physical assaults.
These incidents took place across the country, but consistent with prior reports, the states with the highest number of incidents tended to be those with the largest Jewish populations. These include New York State with 267 incidents; California with 197; Massachusetts, 117; Florida, 69; and Pennsylvania with 58 incidents.
The Charlottesville rally is August was one of at least 33 public white supremacist events in the US so far this year, which were supplemented with 188 incidents in which neo-Nazis used fliers to spread their message to new audiences, especially on college campuses.
Anti-Semitism continues to be a serious concern on college campuses and in public, private and parochial grade schools, the ADL underscored.
Incidents in K-12 grade schools in 2017 more than doubled over the same period in 2016, 269, up from 130. Of those, 142 incidents of harassment and 114 incidents of vandalism were reported.
On college campuses, a total of 118 anti-Semitic incidents were reported in the first three quarters of 2017, compared to 74 in the same period of 2016 – an increase of 59 percent.
“We are deeply troubled by the rising number of anti-Semitic incidents, bullying, and hate in our nation’s schools and we don’t think the statistics paint a full picture of what is happening,” said Jonathan Greenblatt, ADL CEO and national director. “Many school-based incidents still go unreported. As a country, we have to do more to ensure that our schools remain places where students can learn safely without fearing bullying and hate.”
Report Stresses Neo-Nazis, Omits Islamic Threat
What appears to be missing in the ADL report, which stresses the neo-Nazi movement, is any reference to Islamic anti-Semitism in the US, including on campuses.
“We are astonished and horrified by the rise in anti-Semitic harassment, incidents and violence targeting our communities. While the tragedy in Charlottesville highlighted this trend, it was not an aberration. Every single day, white supremacists target members of the Jewish community—holding rallies in public, recruiting on college campuses, attacking journalists on social media, and even targeting young children. For over a century, ADL has worked tirelessly to protect any community targeted by hatred – and we’re not about to stand down now. No matter how emboldened these fringe elements of society may feel, they will never threaten our mission,” Greenblatt stated.
Regarding the 703 incidents of harassment from the beginning of 2017 until September, the report failed to mention that the 162 bomb threats were discovered to be a hoax by a mentally ill 18-year-old American-Israeli. The indictment said his motive was to cause “considerable” public alarm.

British PM praises Balfour Declaration at centenary gala

Theresa May delivered a strong speech that expressed warm support for the “visionary” letter and the State of Israel.
Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and hundreds of dignitaries attended a dinner Thursday evening in London, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the issuance of the Balfour Declaration. The 67-word document was written as a letter during World War I by then-Foreign Secretary Lord Arthur Balfour to Lord Walter Rothschild to be sent on to the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland, and was published in the press one week later.
The first part of the declaration states. “His Majesty’s government views with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object… .”
“I believe it to be one of the most significant letters in history, a letter which gave birth to a most extraordinary country,” said May in the beginning of her speech.
She went on to praise the second half of the declaration as well, which took into account the sensitivity of others when it stated, “nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine.”
To loud applause, the prime minister then said, “So when some people suggest that we should apologize for this letter, I say ‘absolutely not.’ …We are proud to stand here today…and declare our support for Israel.” It should be noted that May has repeatedly rebuffed all Palestinian calls to express regret for the issuance of the document.
The prime minister then segued to Britain’s current relationship with Israel. Having met with the Israeli prime minister earlier in the day, May spoke of the interest she had expressed to “deepen our links in areas where Israel is leading the world…agriculture, health, science, technology and innovation.” She also tipped her hat to the existing cooperation between the two countries’ security forces, who face the same threats of terrorism.
The British prime minister openly acknowledged the constant dangers Israel faces, saying that her country is “absolutely committed to Israel’s security….and will always support Israel’s right to defend itself.” She made sure to include in this a firm rejection of any forms of boycotts, divestment or sanctions against the Jewish state.
She also strongly condemned anti-Zionism as a form of anti-Semitism.
“Today a new and pernicious form of anti-Semitism which uses criticism of the actions of the Israeli government as a despicable justification for questioning the very right of Israel to exist,” May said. “Criticizing the actions of Israel is never – and can never be – an excuse for questioning Israel’s right to exist, any more than criticizing the actions of Britain could be an excuse for questioning our right to exist.”
The Balfour declaration is generally seen as the first international recognition of the need for a homeland for the Jews, as the major Western world powers publicly endorsed it, including the United States, and it went on to form the basis of Britain’s mandate for Palestine in the 1920s.

As US prepares to leave UNESCO, envoy urges deep reforms

As US prepares to leave UNESCO, envoy urges deep reformsU.S. Charge d'Affaires to the UNESCO Chris Hegadorn (AP/Christophe Ena)
https://worldisraelnews.com/us-prepares-leave-unesco-envoy-urges-deep-reforms/?UNESCO must change and focus on its stated mission, the US ambassador to the organization urged.
The chief US envoy at the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) said anti-Israel bias and opaque bureaucracy are hobbling the UN cultural agency and is urging deep reforms.
Chris Hegadorn made the appeal Saturday at the agency’s Paris headquarters in one of the last major American speeches to UNESCO before the US withdraws next year.
Hegadorn said the decision to leave “wasn’t taken lightly” but was necessary because of budget reasons, because of the UNESCO’s inclusion of the Palestinians as a member and because countries use the agency to advance their political agendas, primarily against Israel.
He urged UNESCO to speed up spending decisions and do more to prevent “violent extremism,” meaning terrorism through education, notably on social media.
He said the US will remain “a determined advocate for the ideals on which UNESCO was founded” and support heritage protection and educational efforts.
The US State Department announced its withdrawal from UNESCO last month, citing “continuing anti-Israel bias” among the reasons.
“This decision was not taken lightly, and reflects U.S. concerns with mounting arrears at UNESCO, the need for fundamental reform in the organization, and continuing anti-Israel bias at UNESCO,” State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said in a statement.
“This is a courageous and ethical decision because UNESCO has become a theater of the absurd and instead of preserving history, distorts it,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated.
He has instructed the Foreign Ministry to prepare Israel’s withdrawal from UNESCO in parallel with the US, the Prime Minister’s Office said in a press statement.
“In recent years, UNESCO has transformed itself into a delusional organization that lost its professional path in favor of the political interests of certain countries,” said Israel’s representative Carmel Shama-Hacohen

Report: Israeli jets bomb Syrian weapons facility, ‘violent explosions’ reported

Report: Israeli jets bomb Syrian weapons facility, ‘violent explosions’ reportedAn IAF F-15 (IAF)
Did Israel attack targets in Syria again? Arab news sources are reporting that the IAF carried out strikes against a weapons depot inside the country.
The Israeli Air Force (IAF) attacked and destroyed a weapons storage facility in the Syrian city of Homs on Wednesday night, Arab media reported.
The Syria Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that “violent explosions shook” the city, and that the strikes were executed against “a military establishment.”
The London-based SOHR quotes sources that say that the facility was a rocket depot. It is not known whether these rockets belonged to the Lebanese Hezbollah terror group or the Assad regime.
Lebanon’s National News Agency (NNA) reported “strong blasts” were heard inside Lebanon, “caused by Israeli airstrikes” in Syria.
“The Syrian army fired several missiles at the raiding warplanes,” NNA said.
“The Syrian army responded with a surface-to-air missile that it fired towards the raiding Israeli fighter jets,” Lebanon’s al-Mayadeen.

Arab-Israelis: 21% of the population involved in 57% of murder cases

Arab-Israelis: 21% of the population involved in 57% of murder casesCrime scene in an Arab area of Jerusalem. (Lucie March/Flash 90)
Police statistics show extreme over-representation in many serious crime categories.
Police Commissioner Roni Alsheich gave a comprehensive report to members of Knesset on Sunday on the prevalence of serious crime in the Arab-Israeli community.
Yisrael Hayom revealed the following disturbing statistics from the report: Arab-Israelis are involved in 57% of all open murder cases, 55% of attempted murder, 59% of arson, 45% of robbery, and 26% of open drug cases. These numbers veer only a few percentage points (in both directions, depending on the crime) from the data available from 2016.
It should be noted that, as reported in the +972 blog, according to Israel Prisons Service, the proportion of Arab inmates among Israeli citizens in 2016 was also over twice their proportion in the general population — 43 percent – although these included residents of Judea, Samaria and Gaza as well.
When Gilad Erdan became Internal Security Minister, he received an NIS 2 billion budget, part of which was to go to upgrading law enforcement in the Arab sector. Seventeen new police stations in Arab and Bedouin areas were supposed to be established. So far, only two are in the process of being built – in Kafr Manda in the Lower Galilee and Jisr az-Zarqa, north of Caesarea. In other places, Arab authorities are refusing to allow the police to enter suitable buildings that already exist.

Netanyahu honors Rabin with call for ‘national reconciliation’PM Netanyahu speaks at the Rabin memorial ceremony
Netanyahu declared the time has arrived for national “unity” at an event marking the 22nd anniversary of Yitzchak Rabin’s assassination.
The Knesset held a special session on Wednesday to mark the 22nd anniversary of the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. The session was held in the presence of President Reuven Rivlin and Supreme Court President Esther Hayut.
In his speech, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that when Rabin, who was shot by a Jewish assassin, led the country towards the Oslo peace Accords with the Palestinians, “he was acting according to his judgment of what was for the good of Israel, and today I am acting according to my judgment of what is for the good of Israel.”
”I said it then, and it is documented: ‘He’s mistaken, but he is not a traitor.’ I had many conversations with him in which we agreed on many things – the economy, security, the peace agreement with Jordan, which I fully supported,” Netanyahu said in an attempt to set the historical record straight.
”I am calling for national reconciliation and unity… I repeat this message with full force, and I call to unite,” Netanyahu declared.
Rabin was assassinated on November 4, 1995, at the end of a rally in support of the Oslo Accords at the Kings of Israel Square in Tel Aviv.
The assassin, an Israeli named Yigal Amir, opposed Rabin’s peace initiative and particularly the signing of the Oslo Accords.

Hamas hands over control of Gaza crossings to Palestinian Authority

As Hamas cedes control of crossings to its Fatah-controlled counterpart, Palestinian Authority forces install pro-Abbas and pro-Egyptian banners and decorations.
The Hamas terror group relinquished control over three border crossings in the Gaza Strip to the Palestinian Authority (PA) Wednesday, fulfilling a key stage in the reconciliation agreement recently signed by the two rival factions.
PA President Mahmoud Abbas sent his representatives and staff to the Erez crossing on Gaza’s northern border with Israel, and to the Karem Shalom crossing abutting the Israeli border to the south.
While the Rafah crossing—hitherto tightly controlled by Egypt amid suspicions that Hamas has been providing succor to the Islamic militants wreaking havoc in the Sinai Peninsula—also witnessed the exchange of authority among the Palestinian ranks, it will remain closed while Cairo installs what it sees as fundamental security arrangements.
These include the stationing of pro-Abbas guards, in addition to Egypt beefing up facilities to serve as a bulwark against infiltration by terrorists.
Israel has also maintained a blockade around Gaza crossings, carefully monitoring materials flowing into the enclave fearing that otherwise innocuous materials such as cement could be diverted to more sinister purposes, particularly the expansion of Hamas’s elaborate network of terror tunnels.
PA Minister of Public Works Mufeed Hasayneh praised the handover as “an important step on the path toward reconciliation and an end to the division that went on for ten years.”

Balfour Declaration turns 100, Netanyahu challenges Palestinians to recognize Israel
November 2, 2017
Balfour Declaration turns 100, Netanyahu challenges Palestinians to recognize IsraelIsraeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu and UK PM Theresa May. (Kobi Gideon/GPO)
At the centenary celebration of the Balfour Declaration, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared that Palestinian recognition of the Jewish state is the key to peace.
Speaking in London to mark one century since the Balfour Declaration was issued calling for the establishment of a Jewish state, the Israeli prime minister hailed the blossoming UK-Israel alliance and urged the Palestinians to finally recognize the Jewish state. Netanyahu also insisted he’s committed to fixing, not nixing the Iran deal.
“A hundred years after Balfour, the Palestinians should finally accept the Jewish national home and finally accept the Jewish state,” Netanyahu told UK Prime Minister Theresa May. “And when they do, the road to peace will be infinitely closer. In my opinion, peace will be achievable.”
Netanyahu’s comments came during a special state visit to the UK to participate in an event marking the centennial since the issuing of the Balfour Declaration.
The declaration, issued by Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour to a leader of the British Jewish community Lord Rothchild in a letter dated November 2, 1917, spelled out the British government’s support “in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people” and pledged to “use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object.”
Speaking in a joint press conference with May in 10 Downing Street in London, the Israeli premier began his remarks by expressing his gratitude to the Conservative prime minister for inviting him to participate in marking “with pride a great historical event, a great event in Jewish history, British history and world history.”
Paying tribute to the UK’s past contribution to catalyzing the establishment of the Jewish state, Netanyahu also celebrated the strong alliance that had been developed between the UK and Israel.
“A hundred years later, our two countries, our two democracies–Israel and Britain–are strong allies and partners,” Netanyahu said, listing just a few of the various fields in which the friendship has blossomed.
“We cooperate closely on intelligence. We cooperate closely in the battle against terrorism. And we’ve saved, through this cooperation, countless lives–British lives, Israeli lives,” he said.
“We cooperate in cybersecurity, in technology, in business and enterprise. We share the values of freedom and democracy and peace.”
Turning his attention to the peace process between his country and the Palestinians, which have stagnated in recent years since the last peace push spearheaded by former US president Barack Obama, Netanyahu reiterated that both he and Israel are committed to peace, but added that the crucial caveat lay in Palestinian recognition of Israel as the Jewish state.
Moreover, Netanyahu highlighted the “great things that are happening in the Middle East,” citing the “many Arab countries” who “now see Israel not as an enemy, but as their indispensable ally in the battle against militant Islam.”
Concluding his remarks, Netanyahu addressed the Iranian threat, stressing its commitment to dominating the region and its ambition to develop nuclear weapons.
However, Netanyahu was keen to clarify his position on the Iranian nuclear deal signed by the Obama administration, insisting that he was not determined to scrap the deal, but rather to improve it.
“The goal that I have in mind is not keeping or eliminating the deal; it’s improving the deal and correcting its main flaws. And I think those who want to keep the deal should cooperate in correcting the deal,” Netanyahu said in a remark apparently directed at May, who recently announced her belief that the nuclear agreement must not be scrapped.
“I have some concrete ideas, which I look forward to discussing with you,” Netanyahu added, before thanking May, who is considered a staunch supporter of Britain’s Jewish community and Israel, “for your resolute stand against anti-Semitism, for your resolute stand on the historical truth and for your friendship. Thank you, Prime Minister.”

Historian: Red Cross failed to help Dutch Jews during Holocaust
November 2, 2017
Historian: Red Cross failed to help Dutch Jews during HolocaustDutch jews arrested during the Holocaust. (United States National Archives)
The Dutch branch of the Red Cross did “little or nothing” to help Jews during the Holocaust, research commissioned by the Red Cross found.
The Dutch branch of the Red Cross did “little or nothing” to help Jews persecuted by the Nazis in the Netherlands during the Holocaust or those transported to camps elsewhere in Europe, a historian said Wednesday.
The conclusions come in a book by Regina Grueter of the NIOD Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies following a four-year investigation commissioned by the Red Cross.
“The central board of the Red Cross in The Hague, bluntly put — but this is blunt — abandoned the Jewish population,” Grueter said at a book launch in Amsterdam. “On the one hand it has, clearly unwillingly, carried out anti-Jewish measures of the occupiers. On the other hand, it did little or nothing to help Jews.”
The book, titled “Questions of Life and Death: The Netherlands Red Cross in the Second World War,” is the latest contribution to decades of Dutch soul-searching about the country’s World War II legacy.
Around 140,000 Jews lived in the Netherlands before the Holocaust. Of those, 107,000 were deported to Germany and only 5,200 survived. Some 24,000 Jews went into hiding, of which 8,000 were hunted down or turned in.
Grueter said the Red Cross also failed Jews and political prisoners sent to Nazi camps by not doing more to get aid to them.
“I don’t believe that a package from the Red Cross probably would have made much of a difference,” Auschwitz survivor Frieda Menco said in a comment included in the research. “But the idea that somebody in the Netherlands was thinking about you? Yes, that certainly would have made a difference.”
The current chairwoman of the Dutch Red Cross board, Inge Brakman, apologized unreservedly to the Jewish community at the book launch.
Red Cross ‘Shirked its Duties’ During Holocaust
The Red Cross “shirked its duties during World War II,” Brakman said. “It is undoubtedly painful to face up to that, but we must.”
Already in 2015, International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) President Peter Maurer conceded that “the ICRC failed to protect civilians and, most notably, the Jews persecuted and murdered by the Nazi regime. It failed as a humanitarian organization because it lost its moral compass.”

Bin Laden’s ties to Iran exposed by CIA files
November 2, 2017
Bin Laden’s ties to Iran exposed by CIA filesOsama bin Laden (AP/Mazhar Ali Khan)
Documents published by the CIA reveal the close collaboration between Iran and al-Qaida in their mutual war against the US.
The CIA’s release of documents seized during the 2011 raid that killed al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden has again raised questions about Iran’s support of the terror network leading up to the September 11 terror attacks.
US intelligence officials and prosecutors have long said Iran formed loose ties to the terror organization from 1991 on, something noted in a 19-page report in Arabic that was included in the release of some 47,000 other documents by the CIA.
For its part, Iran has long denied any involvement with al-Qaida. However, the report included in the CIA document dump shows how bin Laden, a Sunni terrorist from Iran’s archrival Saudi Arabia, could look across the Muslim world’s religious divide to partner with the Mideast’s Shiite power to target his ultimate enemy, the United States.
“Anyone who wants to strike America, Iran is ready to support him and help him with their frank and clear rhetoric,” the report reads.
The Associated Press examined a copy of the report released by the Long War Journal, a publication backed by the Washington-based Foundation for Defense of Democracies, a think tank fiercely critical of Iran and skeptical of its nuclear deal with world powers. The CIA gave the Long War Journal early access to the material.
Iran Offered al-Qaida ‘Everything They Need’
The unsigned 19-page report is dated in the Islamic calendar year 1428 — 2007 — and offers what appears to be a history of al-Qaida’s relationship with Iran. It says Iran offered al-Qaida terrorists “money and arms and everything they need, and offered them training in Hezbollah camps in Lebanon, in return for striking American interests in Saudi Arabia.”

Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei returns to castigating the US for opposing the Islamic Republic’s Mideast power grab.
Iran’s supreme leader said that the US’ “wickedness” is causing it to destroy the nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic.
Speaking at a meeting with thousands of school and university students in Tehran on Thursday, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei stated that the US’ “animosity towards Iran has blinded their calculation vision, leading them to repeat their mistakes,” the IRNA reported.
He further charged the US with “using all the wickedness to destroy the fruit of the nuclear talks.”
“The US is literally the nefarious and major enemy, and [this notion] is a fact established not through bias and pessimism, but through experience, realization of issues, and facts,” said Khamenei.
Speaking at the UN General Assembly last month, Trump stated that the Iran nuclear deal was “one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the US has ever entered into. Frankly, that deal is an embarrassment to the United States, and I don’t think you’ve heard the last of it. Believe me.”
Commenting on President Donald Trump’s calling Iran a “terrorist nation,” Khmanei said that “these absurd words show that not only are the Americans an enemy of Iran’s leader and government, but they also hold a grudge against Iranian people who have tirelessly resisted against them.”
In in a keynote speech given last month, Trump charged that Iran is “under the control of a fanatical regime” that has “spread death, destruction and chaos all around the globe.” He warned that “history has shown that the longer we ignore a threat the more dangerous that threat becomes.”

German soccer fans degraded a rival team through anti-Semitism.
Anti-Semitic stickers of Holocaust victim Anne Frank have surfaced at some soccer events in Germany after they first triggered a scandal in Italy.
The German news agency dpa reported Tuesday that stickers with the image of the Jewish girl wearing a jersey of a Leipzig team were found in the eastern German city and others were found in the western city of Duesseldorf.
The sticker of the girl wearing the Leipzig BSG Chemie team shirt also had the abbreviation JDN CHM on it, short for “Jews Chemicals.”
Being associated with Judaism in the European soccer world is supposed to be a form of degradation. Fans calls fans of rival times “Jewish” as a way of degrading them.
Anne Frank became a tragic symbol for Holocaust victims because of the diary she wrote while in hiding from the Nazis in Amsterdam with her family from 1942-1944. They were betrayed, caught and deported, and Anne died in a concentration camp at the young age of 15.

Swiss army’s activities in Golan Heights contradict nation’s official policy on Israel
November 2, 2017

After purchasing Israeli-made aircraft, the Swiss Defense Ministry apparently tested the drones in the Golan Heights, a “mistake” that contravenes Swiss foreign policy.
In 2012, 2013, and 2015, Swiss defense officials came to a site in the Golan Heights to test and train on the unarmed Hermes 900 drone. The Swiss government eventually voted to buy six of the drones in September 2015 from their manufacturer, Elbit Systems, in a deal worth over $250 million.
However, their presence in the Golan contradicted official Swiss policy. “This incident was a communication breakdown,” said a statement released by the defense ministry on Wednesday. “Those who were informed about the activities did not realize Swiss officials were not allowed to be there and those who knew about the restrictions were not informed about the planned activities,” Reuters reported.
The Golan Heights was captured by Israel in the Six Day War and although it was officially annexed in 1981, no country recognizes it as being part of the State of Israel. The UN Security Council even declared Israel’s decision to be null and void in Resolution 497. Switzerland, which has frequently acted as a broker in the Middle East, forbids its official representatives from going there “for activities related to the Israeli government or companies.”
The Swiss Defense Ministry added that the error was caught in August, and no other tests have taken place since then. All future tests, it said, would be done within the pre-1967 boundaries, with the drones due to enter service in 2020.
The purchase of the drones was not without controversy in Switzerland. Opponents had criticized the deal because, among other things, they said Israel had used the Hermes 900 in 2014’s Operation Protective Edge against Hamas in Gaza. However, Swiss Defense Minister Ueli Maurer defended the purchase, arguing that Switzerland was not buying the drones from the State of Israel but from a private company, and that they would be used only for surveillance by Swiss border guards and not as an offensive weapon.

The only way to deter Hezbollah and Iran from attacking Israel is by giving Israel the full ability to fight back, leading military experts contend.
A war between Israel and the Hezbollah terror organization is inevitable and will likely be “more violent and destructive” than the previous conflicts, according to a report by the High Level Military Group (HLMG), a think tank comprised of former senior defense officials.
In the report, titled “Hezbollah’s Terror Army: How to Prevent a Third Lebanon War,” the experts describe Hezbollah as being “widely considered to be the most powerful non-state armed actor in the world.”
The Iranian-backed terrorist organization, which is in complete political and military control of Lebanon, “has the political clout of a government, the firepower of an army and the strategic approach of a terrorist organization,” according to their assessment.
Hezbollah currently has a stockpile of over 130,000 rockets, more than the combined arsenal of all NATO countries, with the exception of the US, a June 2016 report said.
Hezbollah’s rocket capabilities “have increased tenfold since the 2006 war, and present a threat few countries, much less sub-state organizations, on the globe can mount,” the report says.

Surrounding the show of good will, Netanyahu has asked Trump to allow political prisoner Jonathan Pollard to immigrate to Israel.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has asked President Donald Trump to allow Jonathan Pollard to immigrate to Israel, Israel’s Channel 2 news reported Tuesday.
After serving 30 years in a US prison for charges of spying for Israel, Pollard was finally released in November 2015 and lives in New York under several court-ordered constraints.
He is required to wear a GPS monitoring ankle bracelet, which he claims is causing him to have health problems and to violate the Sabbath and Jewish holidays. He is also banned form using the internet and cannot have contact with the media.
According to the report, Netanyahu told the Trump administration that Pollard would continue to be subject to the same restrictions if he was allowed to immigrate to Israel.
The report stated that Israel is taking the opportunity and the good will surrounding the Trump Administration’s attempts to restart the diplomatic process between Israel and the Palestinian Authority to push for Pollard’s release.
Pollard, 63, has been suffering from poor health.

The Hamas-Fatah Love Affair: What It Means for Israel

Love is reportedly in the air between Hamas and Fatah, but as with most Middle Eastern affairs, there is more here than meets the eye.
By: Daniel Krygier, Political Analyst, World Israel News
The Islamist terror group Hamas has ruled the Gaza Strip since 2007 and does not intend to give up power voluntarily to Fatah or anyone else. However, the Hamas regime is under increased pressure from wide segments of Gaza’s population, who are dissatisfied with daily life in the coastal enclave. While Israel and the Jews remain hated, Gazans are increasingly more concerned about their daily lives.
Like Fatah, Hamas’ leaders are more interested in maintaining their luxury lifestyle than improving the lives of ordinary people. Hamas has invested far more in terrorism against Israel than in improving the lives of ordinary Gazans. Severe mismanagement and an increasingly fanatical Islamic regime has resulted in a dramatic decrease in the support for Hamas among Gazans. By striking a formal deal with Fatah, Hamas hopes to strengthen its military power in Gaza by outsourcing the responsibility of the daily lives of Gazans to Ramallah.
By joining a unity government, the Gaza-based terror group hopes to fill its coffers with more international aid. Hamas has no intention to disarm, as Fatah demands. The Islamic regime in Gaza will likely continue to remain the real power in Gaza and will continue investing in its vast subterranean terror infrastructure.
Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas struggles with the dilemma of being far more popular in the West than just outside his Ramallah office. Challenged by younger, power-hungry Fatah leaders – and disliked by much of the Arab population in Judea and Samaria – Abbas hopes that the unity deal with Hamas will strengthen his fragile position.
There is a striking similarity between the Hamas-Fatah deal and the deal between Hezbollah and Lebanon’s weak government led by Prime Minister Saad Hariri. While acting in the shadows, Hezbollah is the real power in Lebanon and benefits from Western support for the Hariri regime. Hamas hopes to achieve a similar situation in Gaza and possibly also in Judea and Samaria.

A Jewish businessman was one of the victims killed on Tuesday by an Islamic terrorist who plowed his truck through a bike path near the World Trade Center memorial, killing at least eight and seriously injuring 11.
Ariel Erlij was killed together with another four friends from Argentina, Hernan Diego Mendoza, Diego Enrique Angelini, Alejandro Damian Pagnucco, and Hernan Ferruchi, who were visiting the city, celebrating 30 years since their graduation from the Polytechnic School of Rosario, Argentina.
The trip was paid for by Erlij, the chief executive of Ivanar, an Argentine steel products manufacturing company, according to Argentina’s La Nacion newspaper.
Another one of the victims was a Belgian citizen.

“Be patient, Jews come last,” a young Jewish girl was told at a Stamford Hill shop.
A 16-year-old Jewish girl has been told by a shopkeeper in Stamford Hill in North East London, “Be patient, Jews come last.”
The Campaign Against Antisemitism (CAA), a UK anti-Semitism watchdog, reported that the alleged incident took place last Wednesday at a shop which has a drop-off service for parcels, acting as an agent for online shops.
The Jewish schoolgirl was dropping off items, but in the middle of serving her the female shopkeeper stopped and started serving another customer.
The Jewish schoolgirl asked politely if she could just have her receipt so that she could leave, to which the shopkeeper allegedly replied: “Be patient, Jews come last.”
Stamford Hill Shomrim, the volunteer neighborhood watch patrol, assisted the young girl who was shocked and felt very hurt by the anti-Semitic comment.

Israeli archaeologists unearth intriguing find at King Solomon’s Mines

Israeli archaeologists unearth intriguing find at King Solomon’s MinesThe Solomon Pillars in Timna Park (
A rare find in southern Israel has illuminated Egypt’s ancient presence in the area.
In a find that has taken the field by surprise, Israeli archaeologists have unearthed the 3,200-year-old remains of a pregnant woman at the ancient copper mines in southern Israel’s Timna Valley.
“It is very rare to find human remains in Timna, and it is the first time we found a woman,” Tel Aviv University archaeologist Erez Ben-Yosef, who has led a team at the excavation site since 2012, told Haaretz.
According to archaeologists, the woman was in the first trimester of her pregnancy when she died and was buried near an ancient Egyptian temple, close to what archaeologists later named “King Solomon’s Mines,” where it is believed that the site was controlled by the biblical king.
The woman, who anthropologists believe was likely in her 20s, was found with two tiny glass beads that likely link the body to the Egyptian temple. The temple, which was dedicated to the goddess Hathor, is believed to have been used from the 13th to 12th centuries B.C.E, when the area was under Egyptian control.

The beads “could indicate that she was an Egyptian woman who had traveled there to be a cultic singer or musician for the goddess Hathor,” suggested Deborah Sweeney, an Egyptologist at Tel Aviv University, Haaretz reported.
At the same time, archaeologists expressed surprise that they uncovered human remains at all, as it was the first time they found such remains since 1964.

Trump now opposes ‘Greater Jerusalem’ bill, seen as obstacle to peaceMa'ale Adumim, a community potentially affected by the Greater Jerusalem Law. (Hadas Parush/Flash90)
Israeli legislation designed to gather Jerusalem area communities into a unified municipal district is apparently facing resistance from US officials.
A recently proposed bill that would permit the Israeli government to annex communities in Judea and Samaria into a Jerusalem-based district has apparently run into opposition from the Trump administration. This development runs counter to reports from the State Department last week that the US would not oppose the legislation, which is not the first time that Trump officials and State have failed to see eye-to-eye on issues related to Israel.
The legislation, entitled the Greater Jerusalem Law, would have brought close to 20 communities in areas captured during the 1967 Six Day War under the jurisdiction of the Israeli capital. These communities include larger towns, such as Ma’ale Adumim, Gush Etzion, Efrat, Beitar Illit and Givat Ze’ev, in addition to smaller enclaves.
The Greater Jerusalem Law envisioned bringing together around 150,000 Israelis into the Jerusalem district, in addition to transforming Arab villages outside the security barrier into an independent munici

After discriminating against world-class Israeli athletes at an international tournament, hosts in the United Arab Emirates express remorse.
Disregarding previous warnings from the sanctioning body regarding the matter, officials of the judo federation in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), which recently hosted the Abu Dhabi Grand Slam tournament, opted to implement a number of discriminatory policies targeting the Israeli athletes participating in the event.
Among the steps taken by the UAE judo officials to mask Israel’s participation in the event were rules dictating that uniforms could bear no mark identifying athletes as Israeli, including a ban on Israeli flags or the initials “ISR” on tournament wear.
Shockingly, after Israeli athletes won medals in the tournament, UAE judo officials flouted international rules by refusing to both play “Hatikva,” Israeli’s national anthem, or to raise the Israeli flag. Instead, Israeli medal winners were forced to compete in insignia-less uniforms, and to accept their medals under a generic judo association flag without the ceremonial playing of their national anthem.

Palestinians murdered Israeli as revenge for terrorist’s death

Palestinians murdered Israeli as revenge for terrorist’s deathStabbing victim Reuven Shmerling (Courtesy)
The terrorists who murdered Reuven Shmerling did so out of revenge for the death of their friend, maintains Israeli law enforcement.
Two Palestinian terrorists murdered Reuven Shmerling, a 70-year-old Israeli, at an industrial zone in the Israeli-Arab town of Kfar Kassem in October as an act of revenge, the Shin Bet (Israel’s Security Agency) revealed Monday.
The two terrorists, Yousef Khaled Mustafa Kamil and Muhammad Ziad Aby Al-Roub, residents of Kabatiya, were arrested by Israeli forces a few days after the attack.
The two suspects, in their twenties, entered Israel illegally and worked in the country for two weeks, during which they planned their attack.
Evidence gathered indicates that this terrorist attack was motivated by nationalist sentiment.
In their investigation, the terrorists admitted to planning the attack as a revenge for the death of Ahmed Abu Al-Roub, who was killed in 2015 while committing a stabbing attack against Israeli forces at the Jalameh Crossing, and in retaliation for the latest unrest surrounding the Temple Mount.

ISIS was apparently behind an assassination attempt on the head of the Gaza security forces.
General Tawfiq Abu Naim, the head of the Gaza Strip’s Hamas security forces, was wounded on Friday by an explosion that targeted his vehicle.
Several other Palestinians were injured in the incident.
Abu Naim was hospitalized at Al Shifa Hospital in Gaza and released on Saturday.
Abu Naim served time in Israeli prisons and was released in the 2011 Gilad Shalit prisoner exchange deal between Hamas and Israel.
The head of the Hamas terrorist organization’s Political Bureau, Ismail Haniyeh, stated while visiting Abu Naim that the assassination attempt “will only strengthen the power and the steadfastness of Hamas.”
“It is wrong to believe that these crimes, whoever is behind them, can prevent us from moving ahead in the resistance path towards liberation,” Haniyeh stated, alluding to the fact that Hamas’ is charging Israel with the failed attempt on Abu Naim’s life.
He assured that “this criminal attempt will not diminish our resolve to achieve the Palestinian national reconciliation.”

Palestinian-American ISIS terrorist gets 20-year sentence

Palestinian-American ISIS terrorist gets 20-year sentenceMohamad Khweis (Screenshot)

The only American citizen who successfully joined ISIS was sentenced to 20 years in prison.
Mohamad Khweis, 27, the only American citizen to be convicted of successfully joining the Islamic State (ISIS) terror group overseas, was sentenced to 20 years in prison on Friday.
Khweis, from Alexandria, Virginia, was convicted on terrorism charges earlier this year. Khweis traveled to Iraq and Syria in December 2015, and even obtained an official ISIS membership card.
He found life there distasteful and escaped after a few months. He surrendered in northern Iraq to Kurdish forces, who broadcast his capture around the world.
Khweis was born in the US. His mother is Iraqi born, while his father claims to be Palestinian.
The nature of Khweis’ crime merited a strong sentence, said prosecutor Dennis Fitzpatrick, who argued for 35 years in prison.

ISIS Threat at Israel’s Doorstep, Despite Losses Elsewhere
Despite the terror group’s losses elsewhere, the Islamic State threat is alive at Israel’s border.

During the last several months,the Islamic State has seen its self-declared caliphate in Iraq and Syria erode at the hands of a U.S.-backed coalition. With the recent liberation of Islamic State’s de-facto capital in Raqqa, Syria, by coalition forces, many experts see the jihadist group attempting to bounce back by shifting from “state-building” to bolstering its terror network, including by exploiting lawless areas of the Middle East.

In Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, despite ongoing efforts by the Egyptian military, an Islamic State-affiliated terror group continues to deliver a succession of painful, deadly attacks on the Arab country’s security forces. With Islamic State’s losses in Syria and Iraq piling up, the Sinai remains an area where the terrorist organization is active and on the attack.

Occasionally, Islamic State’s Sinai affiliate, known as Sinai Province, fires rockets into southern Israel—including an attack in mid-October, sending residents of the Eshkol region fleeing for cover.

Poland discriminates against Holocaust survivors in property law

Polish law aimed at compensating people whose property was seized under Communism excludes Holocaust survivors and their heirs.
Jewish organizations from around the world voiced disappointment over a proposed Polish law aimed at compensating people whose property was seized under communism, saying it excludes most Polish Holocaust survivors and their heirs.
Poland’s Justice Ministry last week published the bill, which requires that claimants be Polish citizens and limits compensation to spouses, children or grandchildren.
The World Jewish Restitution Organization says those provisions would exclude the vast majority of Holocaust survivors and their families because most left Poland during or after World War II and settled elsewhere. The group also says because of the Holocaust’s toll, the heirs of seized properties are often nieces or nephews rather than direct descendants.
The World Jewish Congress (WJC) has also expressed “profound disappointment” that Holocaust survivors are being excluded from the law.

Speaking at a Knesset event marking Aliyah Day, which was first celebrated last year, Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu paid tribute to new immigrants for helping bring about Israel’s “unimaginable prosperity.”
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hailed the “dream of the return to Zion” Tuesday as the Knesset celebrated for Aliyah Day by paying tribute to the continuation of Jewish immigration from around the globe since biblical times.
Pinpointing the biblical period of Abraham as the genesis of the Jewish historical journey to Zion, Netanyahu acknowledged that the phenomenon had at times slowed to “small trickles” while sometimes gaining momentum into “a big flow,” but rejoiced that “since the inception of Zionism it has been at the top of the list of priorities, in order to realize the dream of the return to Zion.”
Marking Aliyah Day as an official national holiday came following the ratification of a law in June which was framed to honor immigrants who each year depart from their home countries and relocate to Israe

Israeli tech brings clean water and healthcare to refugees in Africa

Israeli solar and water technology is arriving in rural African villages, as a groundbreaking organization from the Jewish state brings relief to refugees.
An operation bringing much-needed Israeli technology to impoverished Africans is making headway improving the daily lives of literally tens of thousands of refugees. These results were achieved largely through the efforts of Innovation: Africa, which brings Israeli solutions to assist populations in rural African villages.
Israeli solar energy technology is at the heart of many of Innovation: Africa’s strategies, through which the sun’s power is harnessed to pump clean water and provide orphanages, medical clinics, and schools with the energy they need to to store vaccines, medicines and other necessities.
This project, based in the war-torn Central African Republic, was facilitated by Israeli ambassador to Cameroon, Ran Gidor, who sought partnerships to assist medical centers, improve patient treatments, and upgrade water quality in the East Region. In this area, Israeli solar technologies help pump clean water from underground aquifers to villages. Specifically, plans were made to install solar energy in the health centers of Ngoura Central, Garga Sarali, and Tongo Gandima.
Innovation: Africa’s efforts began in Cameroon in April 2017, with Israeli experts buckling down to engineer solar energy plans for the designated sites. Simultaneously, water engineers developed a drilling and distribution strategy for the water pumping system in Garga Sarali.

Clinton campaign funded effort to accuse Trump of ties with Russia
October 26, 2017
The latest scandal in US politics involves allegations that Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign helped finance research into accusations related to Trump and Russia.
President Donald Trump and fellow Republicans were dismayed by revelations tying Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign to a dossier of allegations about his ties to Russia. The president said Wednesday it was a “disgrace” that Democrats had helped pay for research that produced the document.
“It’s just really — it’s a very sad commentary on politics in this country,” Trump said in addressing reporters one day after news reports revealed that the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC), for several months last year, helped fund research that ultimately ended up in the dossier.
The document, compiled by a former British spy and alleging a compromised relationship between Trump and the Kremlin, has emerged this year as a political flashpoint. Law enforcement officials have worked to corroborate its claims. James Comey, FBI director at the time, advised Trump about the existence of the allegations, and the ex-spy who helped assemble the document, Christopher Steele, has been questioned as part of an ongoing probe into possible coordination between Russia and the Trump camp.

Fans of the Italian Lazio soccer team have again been implicated in anti-Semitism.
Images of Anne Frank wearing a Roma soccer team jersey were among the anti-Semitic stickers and graffiti left by Lazio fans that were discovered at the Stadio Olimpico on Monday.
It was the latest in a long line of racist or anti-Semitic incidents involving Lazio supporters.
The northern curva (end) of the stadium where Lazio’s “ultra” fans sit was closed on Sunday for the match with Cagliari due to racist chanting during a match against Sassuolo this month.
As a result, Lazio decided to open the southern end and let the ultras in where Roma’s hard-core fans sit for their home matches.
Stadium cleaners found the anti-Semitic stickers a day later.
The Italian football federation is likely to open an investigation, which could result in a full stadium ban for Lazio.

UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson expressed optimism Monday that the Iranian nuclear deal, forged under the leadership of former US President Barack Obama, will survive. The British chief diplomat hailed the agreement as a model for resolving mounting tensions between the US and North Korea.
Applauding the blend of “toughness but engagement,” he also commended Secretary of State Rex Tillerson for seeking dialogue with Pyongyang.
Johnson’s statements, which stand in sharp contrast to those made by President Donald Trump, are unlikely to result in a diplomatic backlash. On Sunday, in fact, Trump announced that France’s and Germany’s continued trading with Tehran would not lead to any political fallout.

UN Forced to Retract Honor for African Tyrant After International Outcry
The World Health Organization reversed its decision to honor Zimbabwean despot Robert Mugabe as a “goodwill ambassador,” capping off yet another episode of UN hypocrisy.
The United Nations’ World Health Organization (WHO) has retracted its decision to appoint Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe to serve as a goodwill ambassador, following vociferous opposition to the move in light of his regime’s well documented human rights violations.
Mugabe was tapped this past week by the director of the UN health agency, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, to fill the role, undertaking efforts to allay the phenomenon of non-contagious illnesses in Africa such as heart attacks and strokes.
Nevertheless, the offer swiftly attracted fierce criticism from opponents who bemoaned the agency’s conspicuous hypocrisy due to the almost comprehensive collapse of Zimbabwe’s health care system under Mugabe’s draconian rule.
“The government of Robert Mugabe has brutalized human rights activists, crushed democracy dissidents, and turned the breadbasket of Africa — and its health system — into a basket-case. The notion that the U.N. should now spin this country as a great supporter of health is, frankly, sickening,” said UN Watch executive director Hillel Neuer.
Following the international outcry, Tedros tweeted on Saturday night that he intended to reconsider the offer to Mugabe.
By Sunday, Tedros had announced his decision to heed the concerns expounded by activists determined to reverse the appointment.

Israel Aerospace Industries announced it has formed a joint venture with a South Korean counterpart to make unmanned aircraft together.
Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) says it has formed a new company, called Korea Aviation Technologies, with Hankuk Carbon (HC) to develop drones with vertical takeoff and landing capabilities (VTOL). Its products will be aimed at both the military and civilian markets in South Korea.
The two companies signed their joint venture agreement on Tuesday at the International Aerospace and Defense Exhibition in Seoul. Each will hold a 50 percent stake in the joint venture.
State-owned IAI is one of the world’s leaders in drone technology, while Hankuk Carbon will provide manufacturing expertise.
Moon-Soo Cho, CEO from Hankuk Carbon, said that “both companies have established a firm relationship within a short period of time, and the result will be passed on to the HC-IAI joint venture. The UAS system with innovative hybrid propulsion system produced under KAT’s name will set up a new standard of the UAV industry.”

UN blacklist of corporations that do business with Israel moves forward
October 27, 2017

Following up on previous threats regarding a blacklist of corporations that conduct business in Judea and Samaria and other regions in Israel, a UN agency has reportedly begun circulating letters to these companies.

The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) appears to be preparing to make good on its previous warnings that it will publish a blacklist of businesses who have dealings in the Judea and Samaria region of Israel. While these businesses improve the economy in this area, benefiting both Israelis and Palestinians, the UNHRC appears committed to a boycott policy that many have demonstrated actually harms Palestinian residents of the region.

According to a report on Thursday in Yediot Aharonot, 25 Israeli companies have already been targeted by the UNHRC for its “database,” a term the agency is using for its anti-Israel blacklist. Multinational corporations that have also apparently been targeted include household names such as Hewlett-Packard, Motorola, and RE/MAX real estate. Similarly, Channel 2 reported that US companies such as Priceline.com, Coca-Cola, and Caterpillar have also been implicated.

The UN’s proposed blacklist has been controversial since details of its existence emerged several months ago. For many Israelis, the notion that businesses operating in the Jewish state will be singled out and ostracized feels eerily reminiscent of Nazi tactics in Germany leading up to the Holocaust, which included boycotts of Jewish businesses.

Pence will visit Israel and Egypt to discuss pressing issues in the region and Israel’s space program.

Vice President Mike Pence announced Wednesday that he will travel to Israel and Egypt in late December, and said the US will redirect funds aimed at helping persecuted Christians and other minorities away from the United Nations (UN).

Pence will visit Israel during Hanukkah. He is slated to discuss the prospects of the diplomatic process in the Middle East, address US policy toward Iran and highlight Israel’s space program.

Pence discussed his plans at a religious dinner in Washington, where he stressed the Trump administration’s commitment to helping Christian minority groups across the Middle East.

“President Trump has directed me to go to the Middle East in late December,” Pence said in a keynote speech delivered at In Defense of Christians’ annual solidarity dinner for Christians in the Middle East. He promised that “one of the messages that I will bring on the president’s behalf to leaders across the region is that now is the time to bring an end to the persecution of Christians and all religious minorities.”

Pence also announced Wednesday that President Donald Trump had directed his State Department to pull US funding from “ineffective” United Nations programs aimed at addressing persecuted and displaced religious minority communities, and redirect that money to programs run by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), as well as faith-based groups and private organizations.

Pence said that Christians and other persecuted people in the Middle East have not been getting the relief they need, and accused the UN of having “too often failed to help the most vulnerable communities, especially religious minorities.”

“From this day forward, America will provide support directly to persecuted communities through USAID,” said Pence. “Our fellow Christians and all who are persecuted in the Middle East should not have to rely on multinational institutions when America can help them directly.”

Anti-Israel professor posts vulgar rants against JewsScreenshot of a cartoon posted by Rutgers University's Michael Chikindas on his Facebook page. (Facebook)
Rutgers University’s Michael Chikindas’ virulently anti-Israel and anti-Semitic Facebook posts have landed the professor in hot water.
Michael Chikindas, a microbiology professor in the food science department and director of the Rutgers Center for Digestive Health, has been posting vicious anti-Semitic canards that could have been taken straight out of the Nazi propaganda machine.
They include conspiracy theories about rich Jews controlling not only Hollywood but the Federal Reserve and the American government; the incredible statement that Jewish Turks committed the Armenian genocide; and that Judaism is ‘the most racist religion in the world.” He has shared many stereotypical, anti-Semitic caricatures and cartoons, at one point writing a curse-filled post stating, “These [Jews] do not control me … I really do not have anything to loose [sic], hence nothing to be controlled.”
His vitriol is especially strong when it comes to Israel. It is a given to him that Zionism equals racism, but Chikindas goes much further, as he claims that “Israel is the terrorist country aimed at genocidal extermination of the land’s native population, Palestinians.”  He also supports the boycott of Israeli universities, as noted in a Facebook post from May 22: “I am very proud saying that I ignore all of Israel’s academia requests to assist them professionally.”

The Algemeiner, which managed to get an interview with the professor, reported that Chikindas actually rejected accusations of being an anti-Semite, explaining that he was partially Jewish and had once been married to a Jewish woman.
Neal Buccino, a spokesperson for Rutgers, told The Algemeiner that “Professor Michael Chikindas’ comments and posts on social media are antithetical to our university’s principles and values of respect for people of all backgrounds, including, among other groups, our large and vibrant Jewish community. Such comments do not represent the position of the University.”

He added that the university was investigating if Chikindas violated the Rutgers’ policy prohibiting discrimination.

As of Wednesday morning, the professor’s Facebook page had been taken down.

Palestinian land grab continues near historic Sebastia

The Palestinian Authority has begun paving another illegal road in Area C of the Samaria region.
Palestinian workers have moved heavy equipment near the old Turkish railway station of Sebastia in Samaria and have begun paving a road there although it is illegal, as it is in Area C where Israel retains full control.
Regavim, an organization dedicated to ensuring legal and accountable use of Israel’s national lands, discovered the illegal activity as part of its monitoring efforts of illegal Arab construction in Jerusalem, the Negev and Galilee. According to the organization, this isn’t the first time that the Palestinians have tried to create “facts on the ground” in this area. The Civil Administration was warned a year and a half ago about a road being paved in the compound towards the town of Burka. In 2013, it was told that illegal housing was being constructed. To date, no demolition orders have been carried out.

“As far as we know, this is a clear and deliberate attempt at a takeover by the Palestinian Authority (PA), which is trying to push the Israeli presence away from this site,” a Regavim statement said. “The Civil Administration must wake up, protect state lands and put enforcement and supervision measures in place before one of the great symbols of our settlement is no longer ours.”

Illegal road construction is nothing new to the PA. In June of this year, it was reported that a 5-kilometer long road was being paved in the South Hebron Hills, straight through an old IDF firing range where twelve illegal Palestinian shanty towns had been set up. In 2016, an unauthorized road was built in Rawabi, a new Palestinian city. Although the city is in Area B, the road itself was on land in Area C.

Israel honors Egyptian doctor who saved Jews during Holocaust

Yad Vashem posthumously honored Egyptian physician Dr. Mohamed Helmy as “Righteous Among the Nations,” the first Arab awarded this highest distinction.

Yad Vashem, Israel’s national Holocaust memorial, on Thursday held a ceremony posthumously honoring Egyptian physician Dr. Mohamed Helmy, as Righteous Among the Nations.

Israel’s Ambassador to Germany Jeremy Issacharoff presented the medal and certificate of honor to Dr. Nasser Kotby, Helmy’s nephew, on behalf of Yad Vashem, the State of Israel and the Jewish people, at a ceremony held at the Academy for Germany’s Foreign Ministry.

The “Righteous Among the Nations” designation is a title bestowed upon gentiles who rescued Jews during the Holocaust

Helmy, the first Arab awarded this highest distinction, was recognized by Yad Vashem in March 2013 along with Frieda Szturmann, and their names are engraved on the Wall of Honor in the Garden of the Righteous Among the Nations at Yad Vashem.

After initially refusing to receive recognition form Israel, Helmy’s family agreed to travel to Germany to receive the award from the Israeli Ambassador to Germany.

Director of the Righteous Among the Nations Department at Yad Vashem Irena Steinfeldt remarked that “despite being targeted by the Nazi regime and notwithstanding the great danger, Dr. Helmy risked his life to help his Jewish friends. At a time when Jews were persecuted and murdered only because they were Jews, when indifference and hatred prevailed, he saw the persecuted as human beings, and felt it was his duty to stand up and act.”

She further noted that Helmy’s story is a unique case of a Muslim Egyptian immigrant in Germany who courageously set out to save people of a different religion and a different nationality.

“Dr. Helmy’s humanity shows that every person, however marginalized by society, can make a difference,” she underscored.

Rescued by an Egyptian in Berlin

Helmy was born in Khartoum in 1901 to Egyptian parents. In 1922 he went to Germany to study medicine and settled in Berlin. After completing his studies, he went to work at the Robert Koch Hospital in Berlin (later called Moabit Hospital), where he rose to the role of head of the urology department. Helmy was witness to the dismissal of Jewish doctors from the hospital in 1933.

Helmy himself was not fired, but according to Nazi racial theory he was defined as a Hamit or Hamitic (the descendants of Ham, son of Noah) – a term adopted from 19th century racial science. Not being of Aryan race, Dr. Helmy was discriminated against; he was fired from the hospital in 1938, and was unable to marry his German fiancée, Annie Ernst.

In 1939 and again in 1940 he was arrested together with other Egyptian nationals, but released a year later due to health problems.

Despite his being targeted by the regime, Helmy spoke out against Nazi policies, and notwithstanding the great danger, risked his life and helped his Jewish friends.

When the deportations of the Jews from Berlin began, and Anna Boros (Gutman after the war), a family friend, was in need of a hiding place, Helmy brought her to a cabin he owned in the Berlin neighborhood of Buch, which became her safe haven until the end of the war. At times of danger when he was under police investigation, Helmy would arrange for her to hide elsewhere.

“A good friend of our family, Dr. Helmy…hid me in his cabin in Berlin-Buch from 10 March until the end of the war. As of 1942 I no longer had any contact to the outside world. The Gestapo knew that Dr. Helmy was our family physician, and they knew that he owned a cabin in Berlin-Buch,” Anna Gutman wrote after the war. “He managed to evade all their interrogations. In such cases he would bring me to friends where I would stay for several days, introducing me as his cousin from Dresden. When the danger would pass, I would return to his cabin… Dr. Helmy did everything for me out of the generosity of his heart and I will be grateful to him for eternity”.

Helmy also helped Anna Gutman’s mother, Julie, step-father Gerog Wehr, and her grandmother, Cecilie Rudnik. He provided for them and attended to their medical needs. He arranged for Cecilie Rudnik to be hidden in the home of Frieda Szturmann. For over a year Szturmann hid and protected the elderly lady and shared her food rations with her.

A moment of great danger occurred when the Wehrs were caught in 1944, and during their interrogation revealed that Helmy was helping them and that he was hiding Anna. Helmy immediately brought Anna to Frieda Szturmann’s home, and it was only thanks to his resourcefulness that he managed to evade punishment by showing the police a letter Anna had allegedly written to him, saying she was staying with her aunt in Dessau.

Two documents found after the World War II, in German and Arabic, revealed that Helmy used every possible means to protect Boros – he even got her a certificate from the Central Islamic Institute in Berlin, headed by the Mufti of Jerusalem, attesting to her converting to Islam, and a marriage certificate in Arabic, saying that she was married to a fellow Egyptian in a ceremony that was held in Helmy’s home.

The four Jewish family members survived the Holocaust. After the war they immigrated to the US, but never forgot their rescuers, and in the 1950’s and early 1960’s wrote letters on their behalf to the Berlin Senate so that they would be honored as rescuers of Jews.

Helmy remained in Berlin and was finally able to marry his fiancée. He died in 1982. Frieda Szturmann passed away in 1962.

Saudi crown prince: Kingdom returning to ‘moderate Islam’Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (Saudi Press Agency via AP)
Is Saudi Arabia completely changing? Its crown prince announced plans to steer away from Islamic extremism and oil.
Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has defended his bold reform plans, including the kingdom’s decision to lift the ban on women driving, saying that “we were not like this in the past.”
The prince says that “we want to go back to what we were: moderate Islam,” speaking during a rare public appearance at a major investment conference in Saudi Arabia on Tuesday.
The heir to the throne says the kingdom will work to defeat extremist ideas and ensure that young Saudis live in harmony with the rest of the world.
“We will eradicate the remnants of extremism very soon… We represent the moderate teachings and principles of Islam,” he stated.

After Colombian singer Maluma posed with a female IDF soldier on Instagram, the pop star was flooded with hateful comments from pro-Palestinian posters, in addition to close to 1.3 million “likes.”
Colombian singer and songwriter Maluma’s world tour recently made a stop in Israel, where the 23-year-old mega star had a chance to see the sights and perform for thousands in Tel Aviv. During his stay in the Jewish state, the singer posed with a female IDF soldier, posting the photo on Instagram and captioning it “new security.”
While the photo had garnered well over a million “likes” from users of the popular social media platform, the comments section was also transformed into a battle field of sorts, with anti-Israel remarks abounding.

Member of Knesset Yehudah Glick, a staunch defender of all faiths’ right to pray on the Temple Mount, was thankful to PM Netanyahu for permitting his visit the holy site with his son on the young man’s wedding day.
On Wednesday, Israeli lawmaker Yehudah Glick prepared for his son Shlomo’s wedding. Among these preparations was a special father-son visit to the Temple Mount, which required special dispensation from the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Glick, a Member of Knesset from the Likud party, is a longstanding advocate of freedom of religion and prayer on the Temple Mount. In 2015, a former member of Islamic Jihad, Mutaz Hijazi, carried out an attempted assassination on Glick to violently protest non-Muslim prayer on the Temple Mount. Hijazi called Glick an “enemy of Al-Aqsa,” a reference to the mosque that was built atop the site of the Jewish temple centuries after its destruction.

“An unimaginable record moral low,” says Jerusalem advocacy group ‘Lach Yerushalayim’ about a human rights award granted to a supporter of terror.
Attorney Muhammed Allyan was honored on Sunday for winning the International Pleading Competition of Palestine prize. The award was given for his work defending Nadia Abu Jamal, wife of Ghassan Abu Jamal, one of two terrorists responsible for the 2014 Har Nof synagogue massacre. During the attack, Abu Jamal and his cousin stabbed and murdered four Israeli-American rabbis and gunned down a Druze police officer before being killed by security forces. Several more were wounded and one succumbed to his wounds a year later.
Nadia Abu Jamal, who police say expressed support for what her husband did and had prior knowledge of his plans, was stripped of the Jerusalem residency permit she had been granted and lost her healthcare insurance. In response, Abu Jamal sued the state, taking Muhammad Allyan as her legal counsel.

170,000 documents thought destroyed during Holocaust uncovered

The discovery of lost documents in Lithuania is “a watershed moment for understanding the dimensions of Jewish history,” says a New York Jewish research institute.
The YIVO Institute for Jewish Research in New York on Wednesday announced the discovery of a trove of lost Jewish materials in the Lithuanian city of Vilna, thought to have been destroyed during the Holocaust.
Considered by some as the most important body of material in Jewish history and culture to be unearthed in more than half a century, possibly since the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls, the documents include never-before-published literary manuscripts from some of the most famous Yiddish writers as well as numerous religious and communal works.
YIVO states that this is “a watershed moment for understanding the dimensions of Jewish history” and marks an “important new chapter in the dramatic story of Nazi looting during the Holocaust, when the Germans were seeking to destroy not just the Jewish people, but their memory and culture.”

Hezbollah plans to leave Syria by 2018, preparing for war with Israel
October 25, 2017
Hezbollah plans to leave Syria by 2018, preparing for war with IsraelHezbollah terrorists (Youtube)
Hezbollah is planning on returning to Lebanon to replenish its forces in anticipation of future confrontation with Israel.
Lebanese news site Lebanon 24 reported on Tuesday that Hezbollah was planning to leave Syria gradually over the next several weeks after five years of fighting in that country. According to the report, over three quarters of the Shiite terrorist organization’s men are now serving in Syria. The first phase of the withdrawal is scheduled to begin in the coming days and could involve 60 percent of the forces, with the last fighters leaving by the beginning of 2018.
Hezbollah entered the Syrian conflict in 2012 as a result of the dire necessity for fighters whom President Bashar al-Assad could rely upon, as his army consisted of many different factions, not all of them trustworthy in the eyes of the regime. They answered the call of Iran, Hezbollah’s main financial backer and weapons supplier, which was determined to preserve the regime of their principal Arab ally in the Middle East.
Almost 2,000 Hezbollah fighters are estimated to have died in the war, and thousands of others have been injured. Hezbollah’s high command has now reportedly decided that its remaining forces are stretched too thin and that there is a greater need to return to its home base of Lebanon so it could rebuild its presence on the border with Israel.
Although Hezbollah and other Iran-backed militias managed to prevent Assad from losing the war, it is widely understood that the major turnaround in the conflict is due to Russia’s active military intervention, which began in September 2015.
Meanwhile, the IDF revealed for the first time the identity of Hezbollah’s “southern commander” in Syria as Munir Shaito. Also known as Hajj Hashem, Shaito sent the two terrorists who infiltrated Israel from Lebanon in 2002 and shot and killed six Israelis near Kibbutz Matzuva. Today, Shaito commands much of southern Syria, up to the border with Israel. While his primary mission is to help Assad defeat the rebel forces in this area, he is also responsible for building up Hezbollah’s military infrastructure in the Syrian Golan Heights. His rank is equivalent to a corps commander, and he is subordinate only to the head of all Hezbollah forces in Syria.

Einstein’s theory of happiness auctioned for $1.3M in Israel

Einstein’s theory of happiness auctioned for $1.3M in IsraelLegendary Jewish physicist Dr. Albert Einstein (AP)
Einstein’s theory of happiness was purchased for $1.3 million at a Jerusalem auction, 650 times the initial price.
While Albert Einstein’s theory of happiness may be relative, it fetched $1.3 million at a Jerusalem auction on Tuesday.
The Nobel-winning scientist’s musings, handwritten on a note, may not be as famous as his groundbreaking theory of relativity, but they still shed light on one of the great modern minds.
Winner’s Auctions and Exhibitions said Einstein was traveling in Japan in 1922 when he was told he would be awarded the Nobel Prize in physics. In Tokyo, Einstein scribbled the note in German to a bellboy after he did not have cash to give him a tip.
“A calm and modest life brings more happiness than the pursuit of success combined with constant restlessness,” it reads.
Gal Wiener, CEO of the auction house, said Einstein told the bellboy that because of his fame, the handwritten note “will probably be worth more than a regular tip.”
Wiener said bidding began at $2,000 and quickly escalated, with the bidding war lasting around 25 minutes.
Another note Einstein gave the bellboy, which read “Where there’s a will there’s a way,” was sold for over $200,000, Wiener said.

Iran to execute ‘Mossad agent’ for killing Iranian scientists

Iran to execute ‘Mossad agent’ for killing Iranian scientistsCondemned Iranian researcher Ahmadreza Djalali. (Facebook)
The Islamic Republic branded a disaster medicine researcher as a “Mossad agent,” giving him just 20 days to appeal the death sentence an Iranian judge handed down.
While Iranian officials attempted to maintain secrecy with regard to a scientist who was recently doomed to be put to death, international organizations are releasing the man’s identity, naming him as Ahmadreza Djalali. While Djalali is affiliated with prestigious institutions in Italy, Belgium and Sweden, he was arrested in April 2016 in Tehran during an academic visit.

While visiting the Islamic Repbublic, Djalali was accused of “collaboration with a hostile government,” as prosecutors attempted to pin on him the deaths of several Iranian scientists associated with the nation’s nuclear weapons program. Among the Iranian government’s accusations were claims that Djalali received remuneration, academic positions and research initiatives as compensation for espionage activity on behalf of Israel.
In reality, Djalali “works on improving hospitals’ emergency responses to armed terrorism and radiological, chemical and biological threats,” according to Nature, one of the top peer-reviewed publications in the world.

High profile officials from Saudi Arabia publicly supported the US president’s hard-line stance on Iran’s provocations.
On the heels of US President Donald Trump’s decision not to certify Iran’s compliance with a nuclear agreement that resulted in a flood of funds and business opportunities for the Islamic Republic, officials from Saudi Arabia have gone on record supporting this new direction in American foreign relations.
On Tuesday, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir told a conference in London that the Trump administration had accurately assessed and called attention to Iran’s efforts to destabilize the region, including funding militant organizations. Iran’s behavior “is not acceptable, and there will be consequences to the Iranians,” Jubeir was quoted as saying in the UAE-based outlet The National. “This is what President Trump has said, and we are very supportive of that,” he added.
Among the reasons Jubeir cited for taking a firm stand on Iranian belligerence is the danger that delays in sanctions would give the regime a chance to develop nuclear weapons with which it could pose a global threat.

Israel and Germany finalized a deal that sees Israel’s submarine fleet growing significantly.
Israel finalized an agreement with Germany to receive three new submarines that will go into service from 2027.
In a statement on Monday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu welcomed the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between Germany and Israel on the acquisition of submarines.
“The MOU is strategically important to the security of Israel,” Netanyahu stated, while pointing out that the signing of the agreement “reflects the commitment of Germany and Chancellor Angela Merkel to the security of Israel and the deep cooperation between the two countries.”
Netanyahu expressed “his deep appreciation” to Merkel, German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen and German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel
Israel has already ordered six submarines from Germany over the past two decades. Chancellor Angela Merkel’s spokesman, Steffen Seibert, said the German government would participate in the financing of three new vessels, as in previous deals.

America’s myopic Middle East policies, formulated under Obama, have enabled Iran to become a regional superpower.
By: John R. Bolton, The Gatestone Institute
The fall of Raqqa, capital of the Islamic State‘s “caliphate” in Syria and Iraq, is unarguably an important politico-military milestone, albeit long overdue. Nonetheless, ISIS, a metastasized version of Al Qaeda, remains a global terrorist threat, and prospects for Middle Eastern stability and security for America’s interests and allies are still remote.
Even as ISIS was losing Raqqa, Iraqi regular armed forces and Shia militia were attacking Kirkuk and its environs, held by Iraqi Kurds since June 2014, when ISIS burst out of Syria and seized large swathes of territory from Baghdad’s collapsing army.
The battles for Raqqa and Kirkuk reveal much about the mistakes in US strategy for defeating ISIS, and the consequences of not supporting Iraqi Kurdish efforts to establish an independent state

Israel thwarts Hamas attempt to smuggle military equipment

Israel thwarted another attempt by Hamas to smuggle military apparel into Gaza.
Israeli security forces on Sunday seized a massive shipment of military-grade gloves en route to the Hamas terror group in Gaza.
Israel’s Ministry of Defense stated Monday that its security inspectors foiled an attempt to smuggle thousands of pairs of military tactical gloves into the Gaza Strip via the Kerem Shalom Crossing.
The gloves were concealed in a consignment of clothing.
Israel suspects that the gloves were intended for use by the Hamas terrorist organization.
The truck carrying the consignment and all its contents were impounded and transferred to a special joint anti-smuggling team.
“Attempts to smuggle military equipment into Gaza are part of the daily struggle, conducted largely out of the public view, waged by the very best inspectors,” said Kerem Shalom Director Ami Shaked. “We are continuing our anti-smuggling efforts around the clock in order to ensure that only approved and coordinated goods – that do not aid terrorist elements – enter Gaza.”
Gaza Coordination and Liaison Office Head Col. Faris Atila charged Hamas with repeatedly trying to “exploit Israel’s civilian policy for its own ends at the expense of the civilian population in Gaza.”
He vowed to “continue to frustrate and thwart the abuse of our civilian policy for terrorist goals and the needs of the Hamas terrorist organization.”
The Shin Bet (Israel’s Security Agency) and the Crossings Authority, together with the IDF’s Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), Israeli Police and the Tax Authority, continue to fight persistent attempts to smuggle contraband into the Gaza Strip.
The Crossings Authority thwarted 1,226 attempts to smuggle contraband into Gaza in 2016, a 165% increase from 2015.
Smuggling attempts have increased each year since Operation Protective Edge in the summer of 2014.
Many of these smuggling operations have employed imaginative methods, including by sea and via Israel’s postal service. These attempts include the smuggling of everything from gun scopes to entire trucks.

The International Judo Federation is demanding that at the Abu Dhabi Grand Slam, “all delegations, including the Israeli delegation, shall be treated absolutely equally in all aspects, without any exception.”
The International Judo Federation (IJF) sent a letter to the United Arab Emirates Judo Federation demanding that “all delegations, including the Israeli delegation, shall be treated absolutely equally in all aspects, without any exception.”
The Federation’s intervention came following a request by the World Jewish Congress (WJC) to intervene on behalf of the Israeli judo team competing in the Abu Dhabi Grand Slam this week.
Abu Dhabi is barring Israel’s judo team from donning national symbols and playing the Jewish state’s national anthem during a major tournament in the country.
Additionally, the 12 Israeli athletes participating in the Abu Dhabi Judo Grand Slam tournament from October 26-28 cannot include the letters “ISR” to identify their nationality on their uniforms.
IJF President Marius Vizer sent a letter to UAE Judo Federation President Mohamed Bin Thalub, notifying him that “the IJF Statutes clearly provide that the ‘IJF shall not discriminate on the ground of race, religion, gender or political opinion’…According to these principles, which are binding for the entire Olympic Movement including of course the IJF and all national federations and other entities involved in the organisation of any judo sports event, there may not be any discrimination of any kind at any event organised by or supervised by the IJF, including of course the Abu Dhabi Grand Slam.”

Archaeologists hope to reveal the identities of some 300 Holocaust victims, whose mass grave was found in Gross-Rosen, Poland.
Archaeologists in Poland have uncovered a mass grave of around 300 prisoners at the site of the Gross-Rosen Nazi death camp located in southwestern Poland.
The Gross-Rosen concentration camp was established in August 1940 and held about 125,000 prisoners, who were mostly Jewish.
Some 40,000 victims died at the camp, which was considered one of the most notorious Nazi labor camps. The camp was liberated in February 1945 by the Soviet troops.
“The discovery of human remains matches the account of one of the former prisoners of the camp, a Belgian man who was the camp doctor and was on the site during the last months before the liberation evacuation,” said Dr. Katarzyna Pawlak-Weiss, a historian studying the concentration camps set up by occupying German forces in Poland, Reuters reported.
“In his report, he mentioned 300 people buried here.”

A Palestinian film festival booted a new motion picture by Lebanese director Ziad Doueiri because of his activity in Israel.
A Palestinian film festival on Sunday canceled the screening of a movie by a Lebanese-French director following pressure by anti-Israel activists who opposed his previous work in Israel.
“The Insult,” the latest movie by director Ziad Doueiri, was set to close the Palestinian Days of Cinema festival on Monday and was competing for the festival’s top award.
But after a charged campaign by activists on social media, the city of Ramallah, which was hosting the screening, told the festival to scrap the showing, according to Khulood Badawi, a spokeswoman for the festival, which agreed to the cancellation.
It was not clear if the film was still eligible for an award.
Doueiri’s previous film, “The Attack,” about a Palestinian surgeon living in Tel Aviv who discovers that his wife carried out a deadly suicide attack, was filmed in Israel and featured several Israeli actors. That film was banned in Lebanon and most Arab countries.

The 1983 Beirut barracks bombing that killed 241 Marines “was the opening salvo in a war that we have waged ever since — the global war on terror,” Vice President Pence stated at a ceremony honoring the victims.
Vice President Mike Pence on Monday honored the memory of 241 US service members killed in the 1983 Marine barracks bombing in Beirut, calling the three-decade-old attack the “opening salvo” in the war against terrorism.
Pence and White House National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster paid tribute to the service members, including 220 Marines, on the anniversary of the deadly truck bombing during President Ronald Reagan’s first term.
The vice president pointed to President Donald Trump’s recent decision to decertify the 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran, which was tied to the bombing, and placed the 1983 attack as the first battle in the nation’s ongoing war against terrorism. He also recalled the 58 French paratroopers who died when a second terrorist struck their installation in Beirut.
“The Beirut barracks bombing was the opening salvo in a war that we have waged ever since — the global war on terror. It’s a conflict that has taken American troops across the wider world — from Lebanon to Libya, from Nigeria to Afghanistan, from Somalia to Iraq, and many other battlefields in between,” he said.
Under Trump’s leadership, “we will drive the cancer of terrorism from the face of the earth,” Pence stated.

US senior official denies Israeli report on Trump’s peace plan
October 23, 2017
US senior official denies Israeli report on Trump’s peace planDonald Trump and Benjamin Netanyahu (Youtube Screenshot)
Comprehensive Arab-Israeli peace plan is not the aim right now, says senior US official.
A senior Trump administration official has dismissed Sunday’s report on Channel 2 News that the president was planning to put a peace plan on the table that included all the Arab countries together with Israel, Israel Hayom reported.
The news report also said that the Israeli government was of the opinion that President Donald Trump could very well exact a price from any side that would object to his plan, making it difficult for Netanyahu to refuse to negotiate. The American official appeared to reject this notion as well.
“”We are engaged in a productive dialogue with all relevant parties about an enduring peace deal,” he said, “but are not going to put an artificial deadline on anything. We have no imminent plans beyond continuing our conversations. As we have always said, our job is to facilitate a deal that works for both Israelis and Palestinians, not to impose anything on them.”
All this comes right after US Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt met in Cairo with Egyptian intelligence head Khaled Fawzy regarding the recent reconciliation deal between Hamas and Fatah. Egypt has worked hard on bringing the two sides together, and the Americans recognize Cairo as one of the most important interlocutors with whom the administration is having its ongoing “conversations.”
In an official diplomatic press release, Greenblatt fully backed Israel’s demand that “any Palestinian government must unambiguously and explicitly commit to nonviolence, recognize the State of Israel, accept previous agreements and obligations between the parties – including to disarm terrorists – and commit to peaceful negotiations. If Hamas is to play any role in a Palestinian government, it must accept these basic requirements.”

Hamas “has only brought ruin and misery to Palestinians” and the “Palestinians deserve so much better than this,” says US special Mideast envoy Greenblatt.
Jason Greenblatt slammed Hamas for its terror-related ties with Iran, saying the “Palestinians deserve so much better than this.”
President Donald Trump’s special Mideast envoy tweeted on Monday that “Hamas, which has only brought ruin and misery to Palestinians, now begs Iran for help and again vows to destroy Israel.”
A high-profile Hamas delegation is currently visiting Tehran to improve its ties with the Islamic Republic. The delegation is headed by Saleh al-Arouri, the terrorist mastermind who has recently been appointed by Hamas to serve as deputy to politburo chief Ismail Haniyeh.
Ali Akbar Velayati, senior international affairs adviser to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, praised Hamas for sticking to its founding ideology, which calls for Israel’s destruction. “We congratulate you for declaring that you will not set your weapons aside and for describing it as your red line,” he said.
Regarding Iran’s support for the Palestinians, Velayati said Iran “wants to prove to the Zionist entity that strategic relations between Iran and the Palestinian resistance, represented by Hamas and Islamic Jihad, will never be severed. Rather, Iran’s support for the resistance will increase day by day.”
The “Palestinians deserve so much better than this. We must find a better path forward toward peace and prosperity,” Greenblatt added in another tweet.
Speaking last Thursday, Greenblatt said that if Hamas wants to play a role in any Palestinian government, it must renounce violence against Israel and commit to peaceful negotiations. That statement was the first American comment on the advancing reconciliation efforts between the rival Palestinian Fatah and Hamas factions, and echoed Israeli demands.
Greenblatt said Hamas must meet the international demands to recognize Israel and accept previous agreements with it. Hamas “must accept these basic requirements” in order to take part in government.
“The discussion now is about when we will wipe out Israel. Over is the time Hamas spent discussing recognizing Israel. Now Hamas will discuss when we will wipe out Israel,” Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar stated in response to the American demands.
“No one in the universe can disarm us,” he asserted. “On the contrary, we will continue to have the power to protect our citizens. No one has the ability to extract from us recognition of the occupation.”
UN Condemns ‘Some Hamas Leaders’
Nickolay Mladenov, the United Nations’ Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, on Sunday condemned Hamas for its latest call to destroy Israel.
“I condemn the latest statements made by some Hamas leaders calling for the destruction of the State of Israel,” the UN envoy stated on social media. “They do not serve the interest of peace and the goal of achieving a negotiated two-state solution.”
“Palestinian leaders are working to solve the humanitarian crisis and return the Palestinian Authority (PA) to Gaza,”

Jimmy Carter: Media too tough on Trump

Jimmy Carter: Media too tough on TrumpFormer US President Jimmy Carter (AP/David Goldman)
https://worldisraelnews.com/jimmy-carter-media-tough-trump
Who would have thought? Carter is defending Trump against media bias.
US President Donald Trump received surprising support from an unexpected source in his ongoing battle with the mainstream media – former President Jimmy Carter conceded that the media is tougher on Trump than any other president in memory.
Carter, the liberal 93-year-old former president, told the New York Times, “I think the media have been harder on Trump than any other president certainly that I’ve known about.”
As an example, he pointed out that the media feels “free to claim that Trump is mentally deranged and everything else without hesitation.”
He also rejected claims made by the Clinton campaign and by the left that Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential elections. “I don’t think there’s any evidence that what the Russians did changed enough votes, or any votes,” he said in the interview.
Carter also said he does not believe that Trump’s “America First” strategy is wrong or that it could damage international relations.
“Well, he might be escalating it, but I think that precedes Trump,” he told the Times. “The United States has been the dominant character in the whole world and now we’re not anymore. And we’re not going to be. Russia’s coming back and India and China are coming forward.”
Carter also offered to serve as an envoy to North Korea amid the escalating tensions between the dictatorship and several countries.
“I don’t know what they’ll do,” he said of Pyongyang. “Because they want to save their regime. And we greatly overestimate China’s influence on North Korea. Particularly to [North Korean leader] Kim Jong Un. He’s never, so far as I know, been to China.”
He called the North Korean dictator “unpredictable.”

Netanyahu criticizes political opposition, praises Trump at Knesset session opening

Netanyahu criticizes political opposition, praises Trump at Knesset session openingIsraeli opposition leaders Yair Lapid (L), Yesh Atid party chairman, and Labor's Isaac Herzog. (Flash90)
https://worldisraelnews.com/netanyahu-calls-opponents-sourpusses-who-miss-their-target/?
The Israeli leader mocked the political opposition and praised US President Donald Trump at the opening ceremony of the Knesset’s winter session.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu used his speech at the opening ceremony of the Knesset’s winter session in familiar fashion on Monday, praising the government’s achievements while attacking his political opponents.
After noting a long list of accomplishments under his leadership, such as the growing prosperity in the country, the reduction of unemployment and the advances in cyber and defense, he addd, “But for the opposition, all this doesn’t exist. Why? Because if you haven’t evacuated a settlement, you’ve done nothing.”
“When the sourpusses talk to each other,” Netanyahu said mockingly, “they say, ‘The situation is terrible, Isn’t it? Everything is simply falling apart. By the way, did you remember to order the tickets to London for the weekend, or are you going to Berlin? They’re sour – and flying. Criticizing – and buying. In reality, everything is the exact opposite of what they’re saying…. Advances, not retreats; smiles, not sourness.”
The repeated theme of a “sour” opposition was combined with a clever play on words. In Hebrew, the word for sour is chamutz. It has the same root as lehach’mitz, which can mean ‘missing the target.’
Netanyahu reminded his audience of the time when he was criticized by the opposition for giving his famous speech to Congress before the US against the nuclear deal with Iran. “[Labor leader Isaac] Herzog, you said: ‘This speech is a serious blow to US-Israel relations.’ [Yesh Atid Chairman Yair] Lapid, you said: ‘Your perception of America is outdated and irrelevant, you do not know America.’ That is what you said. You are always missing …”
Netanyahu went on to praise US President Donald Trump for decertifying the deal, as well as pulling out of UNESCO, a step which Israel was quick to follow. In the context of the two countries seeing eye to eye on important issues, the prime minister mentioned the reconciliation deal between Hamas and Fatah, restating his government’s position as well as that of the US that there will be no negotiations as long as the terrorist group does not disarm and accept Israel’s right to exist

Israeli Delegation Storms Out of Inter-Parliamentary Conference to Protest Anti-Israel Proposals
https://unitedwithisrael.org/israeli-delegation-storms-out-of-inter-parliamentary-conference-to-protest-anti-israel-proposals/?
Oct 22, 2017
Arab and Muslim countries utilized yet another international forum to launch their onslaught on Israel.
The Knesset delegation to the Inter-Parliamentary Union’s (IPU) 137th Assembly in St. Petersburg, Russia walked out of Wednesday’s plenary session after the organization approved a series of anti-Israel proposals.
Among the proposals approved were calls for the release of convicted Palestinian murderers and terror leaders Marwan Barghouti and Ahmad Sa’adat, and a rebuke of Israel for holding members of the Palestinian National Council representing Hamas in administrative detention.
The Knesset delegation included Members of Knesset Nachman Shai, Sharren Haskel, Yoseph Yonah, Haim Jelin and Knesset Secretary Yardena Meller-Horowitz.
Shai, who headed the delegation, said during the meeting “I naively thought the organization, like the entire world, is united in combating terror, since terror endangers every country everywhere and at all times. You want to release convicted murderers from prison? I thought you want to fight terror and not assist it, but reality is different.”
Shai added that Israel is committed to promoting peace with its neighbors, including the Palestinians. However, he stressed that “it will in no way come at the expense of a relentless fight against terror.”
After a number of delegations, including those from Syria, Pakistan, Jordan, Kuwait, and the Palestinian Authority, spoke against Israel, Haskel replied: ”I think this is a bad joke. Countries like Syria and Iran are hypocritical. They `teach` Israel what morality is and what human rights are. This organization is supposed to support and strengthen democracy, but in the Palestinian Authority elections have not taken place for over 10 years and anyone under the age of 29 has never voted. What kind of elected representatives are these?”
Representatives from countries hostile to Israel heckled her. Speaker of the Kuwaiti National Assembly Marzouq Al-Ghanim shouted at the Israeli lawmakers that they were “child killers” and to “get out of the hall.”
After the meeting, the Israeli delegation relayed its objection to outgoing IPU President Saber Chowdhury of Bangladesh, saying that he had seriously damaged the neutral position of the organization by permitting Arab states to constantly lambaste and interrupt the Israeli speakers, and that he himself had not allotted the Knesset delegation the same amount of time given to the other delegations.
MK Ksenia Svetlova said Thursday she was proud of the MKs for “defending the country’s honor” by leaving the hall, the Times of Israel reported.
“I would expect the organizers of the event to calm things down and not stand at the side in light of the verbal abuse and it is regrettable that they didn’t do so,” she said. “Sometimes it is not easy to represent Israel abroad, but despite this we must do it on every available platform. Our presence in the international arena and international organizations is extremely important.”

Netanyahu to skip gathering of North American Jewish groupsPrime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (Alex Kolomoisky/POOL)
Possibly due to clashes with Liberal American Jews over Israeli policies, Netanyahu will not attend the North American Jewish Federations’ annual assembly.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will not attend the Jewish Federations of North America’s annual General Assembly in Los Angeles next month, Federation officials confirmed Monday. Dani Wassner, managing director of media and government relations of the Federations’ Israel office, said that Netanyahu’s office cited the long flight to Los Angeles as the prime minister’s explanation for giving this year’s gathering a miss for the first time since 2011.
Wassner also rejected a suggestion made by some sources close to the organization that the prime minister had been disinvited due to Netanyahu’s ongoing clash with American Jews over synagogue-and-state issues in Israel. “The prime minister is always invited,” said Wassner.
However, the fact remains that Netanyahu is deeply unpopular with liberal American Jewish groups and may have pulled out of the event in order to avoid a likely chorus of boos. His recent backtrack on an agreement with Reform and Conservative groups to expand an egalitarian prayer adjacent to the Western Wall Plaza drew a furious response from diaspora leaders, as did the government’s decision to advance a controversial conversion bill.
Netanyahu oversaw the Western Wall deal in January, 2016, but has refused to implement the deal due to coalition pressure from the ultra-Orthodox United Torah Judaism and Shas parties.
Netanyahu will be replaced by President Reuven (Ruby) Rivlin, who will deliver his first major address in the United States. Jewish Federations of North America officials said they are negotiating with Netanyahu’s office for the prime minister to address the gathering via video hookup.

Syria: ISIS slaughters scores in act of revenge

Syria: ISIS slaughters scores in act of revengeAn ISIS terrorist (Dabiq)
ISIS slaughtered dozens of civilians while retreating form a town in Syria.
The bodies of at least 67 Syrian civilians, many summarily killed by the Islamic State (ISIS) group, have been discovered in a central town in Syria retaken from ISIS by government troops over the weekend.
The news of the gruesome find in the town of Qaryatayn, in Homs province, began to emerge first late on Sunday. The number of bodies was likely to climb.
Some were shot in the street as ISIS terrorists retreated from the town, gunned down because they were suspected of working with the attacking forces, according to activists.
At least 35 of the casualties were found shot and their bodies dumped in a shaft.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said it had documented the killings of at least 128 people killed in Qaryatayn during the last days of ISIS control of the town.
On Saturday, Syrian troops regained control of the town, which was held by ISIS for three weeks. The government-run Syrian Central Military Media at the time said the Syrian army and its allies restored security and stability to Qaryatayn after clearing the town of ISIS fighters.
The head of the SOHR, Rami Abdurrahman, sad that what happened in the town was a “massacre.”
The activist-run Palmyra Coordination Committee published the names of 67 civilians confirmed killed and also said the number was likely to rise.

Israel worked to restore order in an Arab neighborhood in the Jerusalem area.
Israeli security forces conducted a massive raid in the Arab neighborhood of Isawiya in Jerusalem on Sunday night, during which they arrested 51 Arabs suspected of terror-related violence, rioting and crime.
Hundreds of police officers and border policemen participated in Operation 700, which was defined as an action to stamp out terrorism and crime in the community, while improving the personal security and will being of the local Arab residents.
The operation included checking business licenses and various other aspects of enforcing public order.
Similarly, municipal employees worked to clean the streets and playgrounds, removed various obstacles that endangered the public, cleaned up graffiti and fixed street lighting.
A special emphasis was put on school areas, where crosswalks were also repainted.
All the arrestees were brought before a judge on Monday.
A police statement said that Sunday night’s operation is the latest phase in a year-long program, and the police has further such plans.
“This operation is the direct continuation of the battle against violent crimes, public disturbances and terrorism which the police has been conducting against those who participate in violent incidents against civilians and the security forces. The direct results of this operation are apparent on the street, through the closer ties with local law-abiding residents and the enhanced sense of the security experienced by residents of Jerusalem and its guests,” a police statement said.

Print Email 4 Comments
Former finance minister Andrej Babis is set to become the Czech Republic’s new prime minister after his party, Ano, garnered 30% of the vote in national elections.
Andrej Babis, the second-richest man in the Czech Republic, set up his Ano party only one year before the previous elections in 2013 but instantly became the second-largest party in the country. His erstwhile coalition partner, the veteran, center-left Social Democratic Party of Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka, meanwhile slid to sixth place in the most recent election, with only 7.3% of the vote.
Often compared to US President Donald Trump, the 63-year-old Babis is a tycoon worth an estimated $4 billion from a chemicals, food and media empire. He had a clear nationalist message, promising to overturn the political establishment, cut red tape and use his business acumen to help get government back on track. His anti-immigration, anti-corruption and pro-economic reforms platform drew an especially large amount of support from older voters.
Ano’s showing proved that many people were willing to overlook Babis’ August indictment on charges of misusing European Union subsidies while serving as finance minister. He denied the charges, calling them politically-motivated, and refused to step down as party leader.

The IDF responded to five Syrian rockets that exploded in an open field in northern Israel.
The IDF on Saturday attacked the Syrian military in response to five rockets fired from its territory into the Israeli Golan Heights.
The rockets slammed into Israel early Saturday morning, setting off the emergency alarm system throughout the area, but causing no damage or casualties.
The projectiles appear to be a result of the internal fighting in Syria.
The IDF responded by destroying three Syrian artillery batteries.
“Whether errant fire or not, any future occurrences will force the IDF to intensify its response,” an IDF spokesperson said after the incident.
“The IDF holds the Syrian regime responsible and won’t tolerate any attempt to breach Israeli sovereignty or threaten Israeli civilians’ safety,” the spokesperson added.

Israelis prepare to repeal failed disengagement, return to Samarian towns

Will Israel repeal part of the failed disengagement and return to northern Samaria?
Israeli lawmakers are preparing to approve legislation that would repeal the 2005 Disengagement Law in northern Samaria, a move that could mean that four Israeli communities that were destroyed during the disengagement will be rebuilt in an area that Israelis are currently barred from accessing.
The Knesset’s’ Ministerial Legislative Committee is considering a bill that repeals the 2005 Disengagement Law in northern Samaria, enabling Israelis to return to the destroyed communities of Homesh, Sa-Nur, Ganim and Kanim.
“This [2005] evacuation had no political or security justification, and the public understands this very well,” said Member of Knesset (MK) Shuli Mualem-Rafaeli, the initiator of the bill, according to the Jerusalem Post.
“There is not justification for barring the free movement of Jews in that area. This legislation is the foundation for the larger initiative to rebuild the four communities,” Mualem-Rafaeli said.
During the 2005 unilateral disengagement from Gaza and northern Samaria, Israel evicted a bloc of 17 communities in the Strip and four communities in northern Samaria. The move, in which 8,600 Israelis lost their homes, remains highly controversial to this day, as it is directly linked to increased Palestinian terrorism and rocket fire emanating from Gaza.

Iran Praises Hamas Threats to Destroy Israel and Defy US
Iran ‘congratulated’ the Hamas terrorist organization for its belligerence related to the Jewish state and its refusal to disarm as a precondition to joining the Palestinian unity government.
A delegation led by Hamas deputy chief Salah al-Arouri landed in Tehran on Friday for top-level meetings with Iranian officials. An official of the terror group told AFP that they had come to report on the recent reconciliation meetings held with the Palestinian Authority (PA). Hamas has reportedly agreed to let the PA resume its administrative governance over the Gaza Strip in exchange for keeping its extensive military force intact.
In reaction to this deal, the Israeli government, backed by the United States, stated that there would be no negotiations with the “united” Palestinian factions unless Hamas recognized Israel, disarmed, and severed its ties with Iran. Al-Arouri, who currently lives in exile in Beirut, flatly rejected those conditions, saying, “We’re not in the stage of recognition; rather we are now in the stage of preparing to eliminate the Zionist entity…. Our visit to Tehran is our practical rejection [of] the Israeli demand to cut ties with it.”
Ali Akbar Velayati, senior adviser to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in international affairs, praised Hamas for sticking to its founding ideology. “We congratulate you for declaring that you will not set your weapons aside and for describing it as your red line,” he said, according to the semi-official Fars news agency.
Regarding Iran’s support for the Palestinians, he stated, “We want to prove to the Zionist entity that strategic relations between Iran and the Palestinian resistance, represented by Hamas and Islamic Jihad, will not ever be severed. Rather, Iran’s support for the resistance will increase day by day.”
Two other top Iranian officials, Admiral Ali Shamkhani, secretary of the Supreme National Security Council, and the speaker of the Iranian parliament, Ali Larijani, also praised Hamas’ stance in their meetings.
This is the second meeting in three months between Hamas and important members of Islamic Republic’s leadership. According to Al-Monitor, an Arab media site based in Washington, D.C., the election earlier in 2017 of Ismail Haniyeh to replace Khaled Mashal as Hamas’ head brought about a warming of relations between the erstwhile client organization and its financial patron that had been strained by Hamas disapproval of Iranian support for Bashar Assad in the Syrian civil war.

Congress considers tougher terms for Iran nuclear deal
October 22, 2017
Congress considers tougher terms for Iran nuclear dealUS Sen. Bob Corker (AP/Erik Schelzig)
Congress is considering steps to toughen the existing law governing US participation in the Iran nuclear deal, in an effort to target more of Iran’s belligerent activities.
US sanctions against Iran automatically would kick in if Tehran violates new constraints, according to a draft Republican bill sought by President Donald Trump as he tries to unravel the landmark 2015 international accord to prevent Iran from assembling an arsenal of atomic weapons.
The draft bill, crafted by GOP Senators Bob Corker of Tennessee and Tom Cotton of Arkansas with input from the Trump administration, wouldn’t necessarily violate the Iran nuclear deal if passed into law. But the measure, obtained by the Associated Press, could still end up derailing the agreement by holding Iran to a series of requirements not previously agreed to when the deal was forged by the US and other world powers two years ago.
Among the expanded criteria Iran would be punished for breaching, according to the legislation: flight testing, manufacture or deployment of warhead-capable intercontinental ballistic missiles, including any attempts to convert space-launched vehicles into ICBMs; and “any work to clandestinely acquire nuclear material, or equipment intended to produce nuclear material, from outside of Iran.”

Israel Strongly Condemns Terrorist Attack in Egypt
“Terrorism will be defeated quicker if all countries are united in taking action against it,” an Israeli official stated following the deadly terror attack in Egypt.
Israel on Saturday issued a strong condemnation of the deadly terrorist attack in the al-Wahat al-Bahriya area in Egypt, in which at least 54 policemen, including 20 officers and 34 conscripts, were killed when a raid on a terrorist hideout southwest of Cairo was ambushed earlier in the day.
Israel “sends condolences on behalf of the people of Israel to Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and the people of Egypt, and sends wishes for a quick recovery to the injured,” the Israeli official stated.
“There is no difference between the terrorism that strikes in Egypt and the terrorism that strikes in other countries,” the statement stressed, while underscoring that “terrorism will be defeated quicker if all countries are united in taking action against it.”
The deadly ambush began on Friday evening when security forces acting on intelligence moved against a terrorist hideout in the al-Wahat al-Bahriya area in Giza province, about 135 kilometers (84 miles) southwest of Cairo. Backed by armored personnel carriers and led by senior counterterrorism officers, the police contingent drew fire and rocket-propelled grenades.
What happened next is not clear, but it appears that the force likely ran out of ammunition and that the terrorists captured several policemen and later killed them.
Those killed included two police brigadier-generals, a colonel and 10 lieutenant colonels.
The last time Egypt’s security forces suffered such a heavy loss of life was in July 2015 when Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists carried out a series of coordinated attacks, including suicide bombings, against army and police positions in the Sinai Peninsula, killing at least 50.

Trump won’t block scheduled release of JFK assassination recordsJFK and Jackie in 1961. (Wikicommons)
Thousands of never publicly-seen government documents related to President John F. Kennedy’s assassination are ready for release.
President Donald Trump says he doesn’t plan to block the scheduled release of thousands of never publicly seen government documents related to President John F. Kennedy’s assassination.
“Subject to the receipt of further information,” he wrote in a Saturday morning tweet, “I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened.”
The National Archives has until Thursday to disclose the remaining files related to Kennedy’s 1963 assassination. The trove is expected to include more than 3,000 documents that have never been seen by the public and more than 30,000 that have been previously released but with redactions.
Congress mandated in 1992 that all assassination documents be released within 25 years, but Trump has the power to block them on the grounds that making them public would harm intelligence or military operations, law enforcement or foreign relations

A Knesset delegation, facing an onslaught of abuse, stormed out of an international summit after the conference approved a series of anti-Israel proposals.

The Knesset delegation to the Inter-Parliamentary Union’s 137th Assembly in St. Petersburg, Russia, walked out of Wednesday`s plenary session after the organization approved a series of anti-Israel proposals, including calls for the release of convicted murderers Marwan Barghouti and Ahmad Saadat.

Israel was censured for holding in administrative detention members of the Palestinian National Council representing Hamas. There was no mention of the innocent Israeli civilians being held captive in Gaza by Hamas, which last month refused a request by the International Red Cross to visit them.

The Knesset delegation included Members of Knesset Nachman Shai (Zionist Camp), Sharren Haskel (Likud), Yoseph Yonah (Zionist Camp), Haim Jelin (Yesh Atid) and Knesset Secretary Yardena Meller-Horowitz.

Shai, who headed the delegation, said during the meeting, “I naively thought the organization, like the entire world, is united in combating terror, since terror endangers every country everywhere and at all times. You want to release convicted murderers from prison? I thought you want to fight terror and not assist it, but reality is different.”

‘Jordan Valley will always be part of Israel,’ Netanyahu vowsThe Jordan Valley. (Yonatan Sindel/Flash90)
“The Jordan Valley will always be part of Israel,” Netanyahu declared, warning that otherwise Iran will take control.
Addressing a celebration Thursday evening marking the 50th anniversary of Israel’s capture of the Jordan Valley during the Six Day War, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed that the region will remain under the Jewish state’s control.
“The Jordan Valley will always be part of Israel,” he proclaimed. “We will continue to settle it and invest in its industry and its tourism.”
“Our eastern line of defense starts here in this place, and if we were not here, Teheran and Hamastan would be; we will not allow this to happen. We see what is happening a short distance north of here when they take up a position, or try to, over the border,” the prime minister stated.
“We see what is happening a short distance north of here when they take up a position, or try to, over the border. We have a clear policy: Whoever tries to hurt us, we will hurt them. We will not tolerate trickles and if they attack us, we return fire, and this does not take a lot of time,” he said.
Former IDF Chief of Staff Yair Naveh and military expert Uzi Dayan, among others, have stressed the strategic importance of the Jordan Valley.
Netanyahu reminded his audience that the Jordan Valley was an ‘arid and yellow land” before Israel developed the area.
Stating his hope that one day it will become “ a place of peace and prosperity for all the people in the region.”

Echoing Israel’s position, US special Mideast envoy Jason Greenblatt told Hamas that to participate in Palestinian rule it must renounce violence and commit to peaceful negotiations with Israel.
President Donald Trump’s special Mideast envoy said that if Hamas wants to play a role in any Palestinian government it must renounce violence against Israel and commit to peaceful negotiations with it.
Jason Greenblatt’s statement Thursday was the first American comment on the advancing reconciliation efforts between the rival Palestinian Fatah and Hamas factions, and echoed Israeli demands.
Greenblatt said Hamas must meet the international demands to recognize Israel and accept previous agreements with it. Hamas “must accept these basic requirements” to take part in government, he said.
Israel announced Tuesday it will not negotiate with a government that relies on Hamas, the terrorist organization that rules Gaza and which calls for the destruction of Israel, as long as it does not fulfill several elementary conditions, including recognizing Israel and ceasing all terrorist activity.
Hamas has always refused similar demands in the past, and both Fatah and Hamas dismissed Israel’s demands as “an unacceptable Zionist interference in Palestinian internal affairs.”
Israeli Minister Naftali Bennett welcomed Greenblatt’s “clear” statement, reiterating Israel’s position that it will not negotiate with a Palestinian government that relies on Hamas until the terror group disarms itself, recognizes Israel’s right to exist and returns the IDF fallen soldiers and Israeli civilians it holds.
Under Egyptian auspices, the Palestinian factions last week announced a preliminary agreement and have formed committees to sort out unresolved issues, most notably who will control Hamas’ massive weapons arsenal. Talks continue with Fatah.

Iran threatens to speed up missile program

The IRGC said it will boost missile development in response to Trump’s threat to designate it as a terror group.
Iran’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) denounced President Donald Trump as “featherbrained” based on his “recent insults against the Iranian nation and his hostile comments about the IRGC,” which pledged to press on with its plans to broaden and boost Iran’s missile power.
Trump announced in a speech on Friday a plan for “tough sanctions” on the IRGC for supporting terrorism and destabilizing the Middle East. The new measures will include designating the IRGC as a terrorist organization in its entirety, as well as addressing the Islamic Republic’s ongoing development and testing of ballistic missiles.
Iran’s Tasnim news agency reported Thursday that the IRGC lashed out at Trump for his stance on Iran, saying his plan to impose sanctions on the IRGC was an “indication of his anger at the IRGC’s effective role in the region and reveal[s] that the US and Israel have failed to carry out their evil schemes to redraw regional borders and undermine Muslim nations.”
Iran has repeatedly charged the US with launching a war against Islam.
In its statement, the IRGC stressed that it will keep trying to “enhance its regional influence” and boost Iran’s missile capabilities “incessantly and with more acceleration.”
The IRGC is directly involved in the occupation of four countries: Iraq, Syria, Yemen and Lebanon.
In his speech, Trump said that Iran is “under the control of a fanatical regime” that has “spread death, destruction and chaos all around the globe.” He warned that “history has shown that the longer we ignore a threat the more dangerous that threat becomes.”
In a televised address to the nation later in the day, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani blasted the comments by Trump, reiterating that the Islamic Republic “will not surrender to such false statements and hate speech.”
Addressing a United Nations Security Council (UNSC) meeting on the “Situation in the Middle East” on Wednesday, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley stated that Iran’s “most threatening act is its repeated ballistic missile launches, including the launch this summer of an ICBM enabling missile.”
“This should be a clarion call to everyone in the United Nations,” Haley said. “When a rogue regime starts down the path of ballistic missiles, it tells us that we will soon have another North Korea on our hands.”

Israeli delegation storms out of int’l summit amid vicious attacks, a ‘bad joke’

A Knesset delegation, facing an onslaught of abuse, stormed out of an international summit after the conference approved a series of anti-Israel proposals.

The Knesset delegation to the Inter-Parliamentary Union’s 137th Assembly in St. Petersburg, Russia, walked out of Wednesday`s plenary session after the organization approved a series of anti-Israel proposals, including calls for the release of convicted murderers Marwan Barghouti and Ahmad Saadat.

Israel was censured for holding in administrative detention members of the Palestinian National Council representing Hamas. There was no mention of the innocent Israeli civilians being held captive in Gaza by Hamas, which last month refused a request by the International Red Cross to visit them.

The Knesset delegation included Members of Knesset Nachman Shai (Zionist Camp), Sharren Haskel (Likud), Yoseph Yonah (Zionist Camp), Haim Jelin (Yesh Atid) and Knesset Secretary Yardena Meller-Horowitz.

Shai, who headed the delegation, said during the meeting, “I naively thought the organization, like the entire world, is united in combating terror, since terror endangers every country everywhere and at all times. You want to release convicted murderers from prison? I thought you want to fight terror and not assist it, but reality is different.”

He added that Israel is committed to promoting peace with its neighbors, including the Palestinians. However, he stressed, “it will in no way come at the expense of a relentless fight against terror.”

‘This is a Bad Joke’

After a number of delegations, including those from Syria, Pakistan, Jordan, Kuwait and the Palestinian Authority, slammed the Jewish state, the Israeli delegation responded – amid noisy heckling and abuse.

“I think this is a bad joke,” Haskel stated. “Countries like Syria and Iran are hypocritical. They teach Israel what morality is and what human rights are. This organization is supposed to support and strengthen democracy, but in the Palestinian Authority elections have not taken place for over 10 years and anyone under the age of 29 has never voted. What kind of elected representatives are these?”

Marzouq Al-Ghanim, head of the Kuwaiti delegation who had been trying to bar Israel from participating in the conference, ranted against the Israelis, saying the delegation “represents the most dangerous form of terrorism, state terrorism” – to enthusiastic applause.

Israelis Called ‘Child Killers’

Calling the Jewish state a “brutal occupier,” he demanded: “Get out of the hall now if you have an atom of dignity. You occupier, child killers.”

The Israelis did leave, but not because Ghanim told them to do so. Rather, they were protesting the anti-Israel resolutions.

After the meeting, the delegation relayed its objection to outgoing IPU President Saber Chowdhury of Bangladesh, saying that he had today seriously damaged the neutral position of the organization by permitting Arab states to constantly lambast and interrupt the Israeli speakers, and that he himself had not allotted the Knesset delegation the same amount of time given to the others.
