Iran builds military base in Syria, 30 miles from Israeli border

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.

35,000 Jews flock to Hebron for Shabbat, setting ‘all-time record’

35,000 Jews flock to Hebron for Shabbat, setting ‘all-time record’Visitors outside the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron. (en.hebron.org.il)
Tens of thousands of Jews visited Hebron on Shabbat, setting an “all-time high.”
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.”

Powerful earthquake jolts Middle East, tremors felt in Israel

Powerful earthquake jolts Middle East, tremors felt in Israel(Shutterstock)
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.
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.

IDF shoots down drone near Syrian border

IDF shoots down drone near Syrian borderA Patriot interceptor launched. (IAF)
The IDF hit a Syrian drone flying near the Israeli-Syrian border, saying it appeared to be on an intelligence-collection mission.
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.”


Report: Trump team drafts plan for Israeli-Palestinian peace

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.
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.”

Tens of thousands of Palestinians salute arch-terrorist Arafat on anniversary of his death

“Our Palestinian people, who have always loved you as a great leader, still have that love, respect and loyalty,” Abbas said in pre-recorded message honoring Yasser Arafat, a terrorist leader responsible for thousands of deaths.
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.
After winning legislative elections in 2006, Hamas forces violently overthrew Fatah in Gaza the following year. The commemoration comes amid improving relationships between Fatah and Hamas, a month after the two rivals signed a deal in Egypt paving the way to end the Palestinian internal divide.

Berlin police investigating theft of Holocaust memorials

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.


Prince Charles blamed ‘influx of foreign Jews’ for Mideast troubles

Leaked 1986 correspondence shows that Prince Charles espoused anti-Israel and even anti-Semitic notions.
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.”
“To me this is the most astonishing element of the Prince’s letter. The ‘Jewish lobby’ is one of the anti-Semitic themes that have endured for centuries. It is this myth there are these very powerful Jews who control foreign policy or the media or banks or whatever,” the Mail quotes him as saying.
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.

By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
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.

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’

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.

Assaulted on Facebook, Galilee Green fights back successfully with supporters from around the world.
By: Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News
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. But I’m leery of Israel’s enemies finding out information about me personally because of a link to my name… I want to support you, support Israel, and give you kudos for your awesome olive oil. Five stars!!”

Israel has introduced new and innovative means to protect its new airport in the south of the country.
By: Aryeh Savir, World Israel News
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.

A group of Pennsylvania students “made a mockery of what they saw” at the Holocaust Memorial Museum.
A Pennsylvania school district is investigating complaints that students on a class trip to the US Holocaust Memorial Museum posted pictures making light of some exhibits.
Superintendent Ed Bowser of the Forest Hills School District said Friday officials are looking into social media posts from the senior class trip Wednesday to the Washington, D.C., museum.
Senior class president Gage Singer told the Associated Press that most students were respectful, but a small number “made a mockery of what they saw,” including in a Snapchat post of shoes confiscated from concentration camp prisoners.
In a letter posted online, Singer called the conduct “unacceptable,” and apologized on behalf of the entire class.
Bowser says any student discipline will be handled privately.

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

https://worldisraelnews.com/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.

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 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

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.

Ariel Erlij, an Argentinian Jewish businessman, was among the victims of the Islamic terror attack in New York.
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.

“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
November 1, 2017
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.”

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.

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.

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.

Italian soccer fans embroiled in anti-Semitism

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.

Boris Johnson hails Iran nuclear agreement, says it’s also a model for resolving tensions with North Korea.
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
UN blacklist of corporations that do business with Israel moves forwardUN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein. (AP/Eduardo Verdugo)
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 Jews

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.

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.

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.

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

170,000 documents thought destroyed during Holocaust uncoveredInside Vilna's YIVO Institute in 1943. (Yad Vashem)
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

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 thwarts Hamas attempt to smuggle military equipmentGlove-wearing Hamas terrorists in Gaza. (Abed Rahim Khatib/Flash90)
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.”

Polish archaeologists unearth mass grave at Gross-Rosen death camp

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.”

US envoy: Hamas has brought only ruin and misery to Palestinians

US envoy: Hamas has brought only ruin and misery to PalestiniansUS Special Envoy Jason Greenblatt (Yonatan Sindel/Flash90)
https://worldisraelnews.com/us-envoy-hamas-brought-ruin-misery-palestinians
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 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

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 groups

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.

“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.”

US: Hamas must disarm to join Palestinian governmentTrump's special Mideast envoy Jason Greenblatt (Ronen Zvulun/Pool via AP)
https://worldisraelnews.com/us-hamas-must-disarm-join-palestinian-government
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
October 19, 2017
Iran threatens to speed up missile programAn Iranian missile test. (IRNA)
https://worldisraelnews.com/iran-threatens-speed-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.”

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

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.

“Iran is a regional superpower. They see themselves not as North Korea, but as the [2,500 year old] historic Persian kingdom. That is their model, that’s what they want to become in our region,” said former Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) head and Member of Knesset Avi Dichter.
Speaking at the 2017 International Christian Media Summit in Jerusalem Monday evening, Dichter, current chairman of Israel’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, explained what he views as Israel’s biggest security challenges with a general briefing about the unique challenges facing Israel in its war on terror. He devoted the bulk of his lecture to speaking about Iran and its nuclear capabilities.
“Over the last 15-20 years, every single development in the Iranian nuclear project was revealed by the Western intelligence services, and not once did Iran put on the table that their plan was to have nuclear bombs”, Dichter said, addressing the fact that Iran has never willingly shared information about its nuclear plans, and that there is no reason to expect them to do so moving forward.
Dichter spoke of two corridors in the Middle East which comprise Iran’s regional strategy: the northern corridor – which consists of Iraq, Lebanon and Syria – all three of which suffer from heavy Iranian involvement in each country’s in-fighting with the help of proxies such as Hezbollah; and the southern corridor – consisting of Oman and Yemen, where Iranian proxies are constantly battling Saudi-backed forces for influence.
Dichter also pointed at Hamas in Gaza as an Iranian proxy, despite the former being Sunni and the latter Shiite.

Palestinian sources reveal terms of Fatah-Hamas unity agreement

Various Palestinian sources announced “implied” terms of the unity pact that go far beyond the actual items outlined in the released agreement.
After the announcement last week that Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah party and the Hamas terrorist organization had reached a preliminary agreement to jointly rule over Palestinian communities in Judea and Samaria and Gaza, the terms of the pact are coming to light.
The rival factions, who have waged bloody campaigns against each other over the past decade, met in Cairo and drafted a set of principles they claim will guide talks moving forward.
Notably, neither the terms of the preliminary agreement nor statements to the press by named and unnamed Palestinian sources indicated that the agreement would include a recognition of the State of Israel or Hamas’ disarmament, which Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu demanded prior to the Cairo meeting last week.
Among the primary points of the six-item agreement are Hamas’ plans to cede control of the management of various crossings to Palestinian Authority staff and the coordination of “security services with the relevant parties.”

Two Jewish victims are recovering from severe injuries after being viciously attacked by an Arab mob.
The area near the Lions’ Gate entrance to Jerusalem’s Old City was the scene of a brutal attack by local Arabs on two Jewish residents. The attack occurred on Monday night when one of the victims left his home in the area to throw out the trash, according to a report by the Honenu legal aid society, which is assisting the victims.
The man was set upon by a group of around 10 Arab attackers who pummeled the victim mercilessly. The Arab attackers also went after a second man, a neighbor who raced to the scene to try to assist the first victim. This man was also severely injured in the melee. While both men were left severely bruised, one of them required treatment at nearby hospital due to a head injury he sustained during the beating.
According to a report by Arutz Sheva, police arrested some of the attackers, who were taken to the Merchav David Station in Jerusalem for questioning. Relatives of one of the victims said that the attack was s tragic reminder or the murder of Rabbi Nehemia Lavi, who was killed near the Lions’ Gate as he attempted to help victims being stabbed by a terrorist. Rabbi Lavi, a resident of the area, was ultimately stabbed to death by the terrorist.

Israel confronts Palestinian ‘unity’ pact with strict diplomatic conditions

Israel confronts Palestinian ‘unity’ pact with strict diplomatic conditionsPalestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah (R) with members of the Hamas terrorist organization. (AP)
Israel will not conduct diplomatic negotiations with a Palestinian government that relies on the Hamas terrorist organization, unless it ceases its traditional mode of operations.
After representatives of the Palestinian Fatah faction and the Hamas terrorist organization signed a preliminary pact laying the groundwork for a “unity” government, bringing to an end over 10 years of vicious infighting, the Israeli security cabinet issued a clear set of operating criteria with which any Palestinian ruling body must comply if it seeks diplomatic relations with the Jewish state.
To that end, a spokesperson for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced, “Pursuant to previous decisions, the Government of Israel will not conduct diplomatic negotiations with a Palestinian government that relies on Hamas, a terrorist organization that calls for the destruction of Israel, as long as it does not fulfill the following conditions.”
Among the aforementioned conditions outlined by the security cabinet is the requirement that Hamas recognize Israel and “desist from terrorism,” which reflects previous demands issued by the Mideast Quartet.
Israel called upon the PA itself to act against Hamas terror infrastructures in Judea and Samaria, and served Hamas with an ultimatum to sever its ties with Iran.
More fundamentally, the Israeli government has demanded that Hamas be disarmed, echoing requests from Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas, who presented this demand as a precondition to any unity government. To date, Hamas has signaled that it has no intentions of disarming.

Israel has advanced plans for the construction of some 1300 new homes in Judea and Samaria.
The Israeli Defense Ministry, the body responsible for authorizing construction in Judea and Samaria, on Tuesday approved and advanced plans for some 1,300 housing units throughout the region.
Times of Israel reported that the Civil Administration’s High Planning Subcommittee also approved another 296 homes to be marketed for sale in Beit El, thus fulfilling a promise made by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to replace homes razed there in 2012.
The 1,292 units include 146 in Nokdim in Judea, 97 in Rehelim in Samaria, 55 in Tomer, and 27 in Maskiot in the Jordan Valley.
In Gush Etzion, south of Jerusalem, 344 units were advanced for Kfar Etzion and 68 for Elazar.
Beit El Mayor Shai Alon hailed this new development.

“Iran has threatened and continues to threaten the world … butcher[ing] innocent people,” warned Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon.
As the United Nations Security Council convened Wednesday for its first meeting on the “Situation in the Middle East” following US President Donald Trump’s change of course regarding American policy on Iran, Israel’s Ambassador to the UN, Danny Danon, presented a litany of the Islamic Republic’s crimes in the region and across the globe.
Danon presented an “indictment” of Iran, charging the top state sponsor of terror with a number of destabilizing policies. Danon identified several Islamic terror organizations that threaten Israel, noting, “The Iranian Ayatollahs sponsor Hezbollah’s war chest, Hamas’ budget of bloodshed, and Islamic Jihad’s terror funds.”
Specifically addressing the Iranian nuclear deal with the US and other western nations, Danon declared, “Iran seeks to destroy Israel by any means necessary. It has tried to obtain nuclear capabilities for years. Today, the regime’s intentions are no different than before.”
“For thirty-eight years, Iran has threatened and continues to threaten the world. Iran and its proxies butcher innocent people. When terror strikes, a trail of bloody footprints so often traces back to Iran. From Bangkok to Burgas, from Buenos Aires to Beirut, and all the way back to Tehran,” Danon declared to the Council.
Danon presented the following four “charges,” specifying that “Iran is guilty of sponsoring and endorsing worldwide terror, violating human rights, promoting antisemitism and seeking to destroy a UN member state – the State of Israel.”
Delving into the Iran’s actions in Syria, a nation torn apart by civil war, Ambassador Danon reminded the UN, “Iran has armed Bashar Al-Assad, the butcher of Damascus. Without Iranian support, the Assad regime would have failed in its evil mission to murder its own people.”

A Palestinian terrorist attempted to blow up a military court in Samaria.

A Palestinian terrorist attempted to blow up a military court in Samaria on Sunday, but Israeli forces securing the compound were successful in thwarting the attack.

The terrorist arrived at the courthouse and when he attempted to enter the compound the metal detector went off. A search of his clothing revealed he was carrying a pipe bomb.

The court was shut down, while sappers were alerted to the scene and safely dismantled the explosive charge.

A similar incident occurred in May.

The foiled terrorist attack occurred against the backdrop of a newly hatched Palestinian “unity” pact between warring factions Fatah and the Hamas terrorist organization. Among the sticking points in the agreement are demands that Hamas cease it’s direction of violent attacks against Israelis.

Netanyahu backs Greater Jerusalem bill to annex surrounding townsPM Benjamin Netanyahu in Ma'ale Adumim. (Hadas
Netanyahu again expressed his support for a bill that strengthens Jerusalem and its environs.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday expressed his support for legislation that calls for the incorporation of towns surrounding Jerusalem into the Israeli capital, essentially annexing them in the process.
While visiting the city of Ma’aleh Adumin, which would fall under the purview of the bill, Netanyahu again expressed his support for the bill while announcing a massive construction project which includes thousands of housing units in the city.
“Ma’ale Adumim is part of the state of Israel. It will always be part of the state of Israel,” Netanyahu declared during a special faction meeting of his Likud party held in the city.
“I support the Greater Jerusalem bill, which will enable Jerusalem and its environs to develop in many aspects. This is important news,” he stated. ”
The Greater Jerusalem Law would incorporate Givat Ze’ev to the northwest of Jerusalem as well Beitar Illit and the Etzion bloc of communities, which are situated southwest of Jerusalem, and Ma’aleh Adumim, into Jerusalem’s municipal boundaries – thus creating a greater metropolitan area and, in effect, annexing 19 Israeli communities, which serve as home to some 150,000 Israelis.
The bill also proposes turning Arab villages in the area that lie outside the security barrier into an independent municipality within Greater Jerusalem.
Netanyahu has previously expressed support for the legislation.

Netanyahu and Rivlin expressed condolences to the American people on behalf of all Israelis over the largest mass shooting in US history.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday issued his condolences to the American people following the massacre of 58 and the wounding of hundreds at a country music concert in Las Vegas.
“Las Vegas and the American people experienced a day of horror; the hearts of the people of Israel go out to the scores of innocent people murdered in cold blood. Our hearts go out also to the hundreds who are wounded; we pray for their speedy recovery. The people of Israel stand with the people of America this time and anytime, but especially in this time. We will overcome, together,” Netanyahu stated.
President Reuven Rivlin sent a letter to President Donald Trump expressing deepest sympathy on behalf of the people of Israel.
“The people of Israel join me in sending our deepest sympathy to you, to the participants in the festival, the people of Las Vegas and to all the people of the United States following this shocking attack which took the lives of so many innocent people and injured so very many more,” Rivlin wrote.
Israel “stands with you as you mourn the terrible loss of life and injury following this senseless attack on people who had merely gathered together to listen to music,” he added.
The Tel Aviv municipality lit up Monday night with the US flag in solidarity with the American people.
The murderer, Stephen Craig Paddock, 64, sprayed automatic fire into the concert-goers from his 32nd floor hotel room at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino across the street from the concert. Paddock is dead. Over 500 were injured in the worst mass shooting in modern US history.

The Jewish diaspora leadership is misreading today’s European political map and the changing winds of anti-Semitism.
By: Daniel Krygier, Political Analyst, World Israel News
Since the end of World War 2, Jews have understandably kept a watchful eye on anti-Semitism and extremism emanating from the political right. Historically, many Jews in exile tended to identify with the political left that was often seen as more sympathetic towards religious and ethnic minorities like Jews.
The surging German right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) party has been widely demonized by the European political elite and Jewish diaspora leadership as “racist” and even “Nazi.”
Ron Lauder, president of the World Jewish Congress, did not mince his words of disapproval following last week’s national election, when the AfD managed an entry into Parliament.
“It is abhorrent that the AfD party, a disgraceful reactionary movement which recalls the worst of Germany’s past and should be outlawed, now has the ability within the German parliament to promote its vile platform,” Lauder stated. Similar sentiments were heard among German Jewish leaders.

New York’s congressional delegation is urging Secretary of State Tillerson to deport a former guard at the Trawniki Nazi concentration camp.
New York’s entire congressional delegation has written a letter urging Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to deport a former Nazi concentration camp guard who currently lives in Queens.
The letter argues 94-year-old Jakiw Palij should be deported from the US.
The New York Daily News reports that in a rare display of unity, the letter was signed by all 29 members of Congress representing New York, both Democrats and Republicans.
Department of Justice officials say Palij was a guard at the Trawniki concentration camp in Poland in 1943. Palij claimed in 2003 that he was forced to be a guard.
All the Jewish prisoners of Trawniki were massacred during Operation Harvest Festival of November 3, 1943, by the auxiliary units of Trawniki men.
A federal judge removed Palij’s citizenship in 2003, saying he falsified his immigration application when he claimed that he was a farmer during WWII.
In August, 21 members of New York’s US House delegation wrote a similar letter to Tillerson, urging him to expedite Palij’s deportation

Israeli Minister: Israel Must Stop Serving as ATM for Palestinian TerrorEducation Minister Naftali Bennett (Yonatan Sindel/Flash90)
Israel’s education minister said Israel must stop transferring tax payments to the Palestinian Authority following its move towards unity with the Hamas terror group.
Minister of Education Naftali Bennett, a member of the Security Cabinet, on Tuesday demanded that the cabinet immediately vote to stop the transfer of taxes Israeli collects on behalf of the Palestinian Authority (PA) after its move towards unity with the Hamas terror group as well as its ascension to Interpol last week, a move Israel viewed as diplomatic belligerence on the Palestinians’ behalf.
“Israel should cease to serve as an ATM for terrorism,” Bennett stated, explaining that the reconciliation isn’t about Palestinian unity, “it’s about Abu Mazen [PA head Mahmoud Abbas] joining forces with a murderous terror group.”
“Transferring funds to the Hamas government is like transferring funds from Israel to ISIS [the Islamic State terror group]. We will receive missiles [fired by Hamas] in return for those funds,” Bennett warned.
Israel, which collects taxes for the PA as part of the Oslo Peace Accords, has frozen PA assets several times in the past in retaliation for anti-Israel actions.

PA prime minister visits Gaza to initiate power transfer from Hamas

The Palestinian Authority and Hamas have commenced their reconciliation process. Will this further hamper opportunities for peace with Israel?
Palestinian Authority (PA) Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah arrived in the Gaza Strip Monday for the first time since 2014, as the PA and its rival, the Hamas terror group which rules Gaza, initiated the first steps in forming a unity government.
Hamdallah’s visit is intended as the first symbolic move towards transferring custodianship of the coastal territory from Hamas to the PA.
Upon arrival, Hamdallah and his 30-vehicle motorcade were greeted by Hamas members as well as members of the PA’s ruling party, Fatah. A crowd of 2,000 people gathered to hear the senior PA official deliver an address.
“The only way to statehood is through unity,” Hamdallah said. “We are coming to Gaza again to deepen the reconciliation and end the split.”
“The government began to exercise its roles in Gaza from today,” he said, praising Hamas for agreeing to hand over governance of the territory to the PA, and lauding Egypt for mediating the reconciliation deal.
This is by far the most ambitious attempt at Palestinian reconciliation since Hamas violently seized power of the coastal strip from Fatah in 2007, leaving the Palestinians torn between rival governments. Hamas has ruled Gaza, while Abbas’ party has controlled autonomous enclaves in the Judea and Samaria area.
The latest move towards Palestinian reconciliation comes after months of economic and political pressure applied by the PA against Hamas, including the PA’s decision to significantly cut its subsidization of Gaza’s electricity bill and stop paying salaries of government workers and former prisoners in Gaza.
Conditions in Gaza have deteriorated greatly in a decade of Hamas rule. Gaza has fallen deeper into poverty, unemployment is estimated at over 40 percent, Gaza’s 2 million residents are virtually barred from traveling abroad, and residents have electricity for only a few hours a day.

Several Hezbollah terrorists were killed in Syria. It is still unclear who carried out the strike.
At least eight Hezbollah terrorists were killed in a drone attack while fighting alongside Assad’s forces in the eastern Syrian Desert.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said Monday a drone of unknown affiliation struck a position of the Lebanese terrorist group, which is fighting alongside government forces in the Homs province.
A Hezbollah official confirmed the attack but could not confirm the toll. The official was not authorized to speak to the media and spoke on condition of anonymity.
Reports say the senior Hezbollah field commanders were among the casualties.
Hezbollah and other pro-government and Iran-backed forces are battling the Islamic State (ISIS) group in eastern Syria. Hezbollah has incurred heavy losses while fighting for Bashar al-Assad and Iranian interests in Syria.
Some reports say that the US Air Force flew the strike mission. According to others, Russian “friendly fire” cannot be rule out as a possibility.
A spokesman of the US-led coalition said the location of the strike was outside its area of operations.

Japan is turning to Israel for counter-terrorism consulting ahead of the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.
Leading up to the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan is reportedly consulting with Israel for assistance with counter-terrorism efforts at the global sporting event.
Japanese security and intelligence officials recently visited Israel to attend an international conference on dealing with Islamic terrorism that was facilitated by the Israel Police’s Operational Directorate, Israel Hayom reported.
“The world can learn a great deal from our experience with terrorism,” a senior police official told the Israeli newspaper. “But today there is also a lot we can learn from the rest of the world.”
According to the Israel Police, Japanese security forces currently lack expertise in Arabic, and with a greater understanding of the language, Japan could better address hostage situations and monitor communication between Muslim terrorists.
Japan and Israel signed a bilateral investment treaty in February to strengthen their diplomatic and trade ties. Israeli Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon and Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida inked the pact—negotiated between Jerusalem and Tokyo from May 2015 to December 2016—during a ceremony at the Finance Ministry in Jerusalem.

Hamas and the PA suppress freedom of the press and prosecute journalists who expose their corruption.
A Palestinian journalist who exposed corruption in the Gaza Strip was prosecuted by Hamas, the terrorist group that governs the enclave, veteran Palestinian affairs correspondent Khaled Abu Toameh reported last week.
In June 2016, Hajer Harb reported that Hamas and the Palestinian Authority (PA) extorted Palestinians seeking medical care in Israel, Europe and elsewhere in the Arab world. Both Hamas and the PA, along with doctors who collaborated with them, demanded bribes from Palestinian patients seeking permits for better medical treatment. The report charged that those who didn’t pay the bribes were “left to die in understaffed and under-equipped Palestinian hospitals.”
The leaders of the PA and Hamas were furious with the investigative report that exposed what some Palestinians referred to as the “mafia of destruction.”
After Harb’s report was published, Hamas official called her for an interrogation but she refused to reveal her sources without a court order.
“The prosecution told me that I was facing the following charges: impersonation of another person (they claim I did not reveal my real identity during the investigative report); slandering the Ministry of Health, publishing inaccurate and incorrect information and working with ‘foreign parties’ (by preparing a report for a London-based television station under the pretext that the media organization is not registered with the Press Office in the Gaza Strip),” Harb recalled.
Ironically, Abu Toameh reported that Harb herself required a permit to seek medical treatment for cancer in Jordan. However, human rights groups intervened on her behalf and she did not have to pay a bribe to get the permit.
While she was abroad, she was sentenced by a Hamas court to six months in prison and fined 1000 shekels ($250). If and when Harb returns to Gaza she will be arrested and jailed.
Critics have condemned Hamas for attempting to silence a journalist.

US college bans use of name of anti-Semitic founder1899 portrait of Bryn Mawr founder M. Carey Thomas, by John Singer Sargent (Wikicommons)
Print Email 28 Comments
A Bryn Mawr founder “openly and vigorously advanced racism and anti-Semitism as part of her vision of the college,” and therefore the use of her name by the college has been put on moratorium.
Bryn Mawr, a women’s liberal arts college in Philadelphia, announced that it will enact a one-year suspension on using the name of one of its founders, Martha Carey Thomas, a noted anti-Semite.
In an open letter last month, college president Kim Cassidy said that the violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville earlier this month that ended in the death of a 32-year-old woman influenced the decision in favor of the moratorium.
Cassidy wrote that the events of the past month “continue to be profoundly disturbing to me. Many of you have said that you share this feeling. The views and actions of neo-Nazis, the KKK, and white supremacist and xenophobic groups are antithetical to the values we strive to embrace at Bryn Mawr.”
“We join many across the country in thinking about how to address institutional histories shaped by racism and anti-Semitism. In this context, many of you have suggested that we confront the objectionable beliefs of one of our founders, M. Carey Thomas—beliefs still so poignantly evident in the recent events of our country. I agree, and I know that many others do as well,” she explained.
Thomas actively worked to bar Jews from entering Bryn Mawr, both as faculty members and as students.
Pointing to Thomas’ significant contributions in the field of women’s education, Cassidy stated that she decided to enact the moratorium for the coming academic year “while the issue is taken up” by an internal working group.
“While Thomas had a profound impact on opportunities for women in higher education, on the academic development and identity of Bryn Mawr, and on the physical plan of the campus, she also openly and vigorously advanced racism and anti-Semitism as part of her vision of the College,” Cassidy said.
Furthermore, “No solution is ideal, but my hope is that by fully acknowledging Thomas’ legacy of racism and anti-Semitism through this action, we will grant the community time for discernment: serious and thoughtful study, exchange of views, reflection, and action planning about our legacies of exclusion and resistance.”

Report: Egypt caught secretly buying weapons from North Korea

Report: Egypt caught secretly buying weapons from North KoreaAn Egyptian soldier prepares to fire an RPG7. (Screenshot)

Egypt has been secretly purchasing weapons from North Korea, in breach of UN sanctions, the Washington Post reported.

Egypt has secretly ordered weapons from North Korea in breach of United Nations (UN) sanctions, with the shipment exposed by the US, the Washington Post reported Sunday.
According to the report, a bulk freighter named Jie Shun flying Cambodian colors that had sailed from North Korea was discovered by the US in the Suez Canal in August. Egypt was notified about the suspicious vessel, but it turns out the vessel was intended for them.
The ship was raided, and officials found a cache of more than 30,000 rocket-propelled grenades concealed under 2,300 tons of loose yellow rocks called limonite, a kind of iron ore.
All rounds were for practice, fitted with removable, nonlethal warheads of the type used in military training
It was, as a UN report later concluded, the “largest seizure of ammunition in the history of sanctions against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.”
A UN investigation exposed what the Post described as a “complex arrangement” in which Egyptian businessmen ordered millions of dollars worth of North Korean ammunition for the country’s military, while also taking pains to keep the matter concealed.
A private company involved in the shipment was shut down and its license was revoked.
The incident prompted another in a series of intense US complaints over Egyptian efforts to obtain banned military hardware from Pyongyang, the report said. This incident and others have led the Trump administration to freeze or delay nearly $300 million in military aid to Egypt over the summer.

Facebook’s Zuckerberg asks forgiveness on Yom Kippur
https://worldisraelnews.com/facebooks-zuckerberg-asks-forgiveness-yom-kippur/? October 2, 2017
Facebook’s Zuckerberg asks forgiveness on Yom KippurFacebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg (AP/Steven Senne)
On the Jewish Day of Atonement, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg sought pardon from all “those [he] hurt this year.”
Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg posted a special message on his page in which he asked forgiveness from those he offended in the past year on the occasion of Yom Kippur, the holiest day in the Jewish calendar.
“Tonight concludes Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year for Jews when we reflect on the past year and ask forgiveness for our mistakes. For those I hurt this year, I ask forgiveness and I will try to be better,” Zuckerberg wrote.
“For the ways my work was used to divide people rather than bring us together, I ask forgiveness and I will work to do better,” he vowed. Zuckerberg expressed his hope that “we all [will] be better in the year ahead, and may you all be inscribed in the book of life.”
Judaism teaches that in order to be forgiven by God for wronging another person, one is required to seek his forgiveness. Jews are thus required to seek, confront, and appease those whom they might have wronged throughout the year.
Yom Kippur is ultimately about change–changing one’s behavior, one’s habits, and one’s values for the better. Yom Kippur is an opportunity to become a better person.
Zuckerberg recently celebrated his Jewish heritage around Rosh Hashanah when he posted, “For Shabbat tonight, we gave Max [his daughter] a kiddush cup that has been in our family for almost 100 years. Her great-great-grandfather Max got it after our family immigrated here and it has been passed down through our family ever since.”

ISIS claims responsibility for France stabbing

https://worldisraelnews.com/isis-claims-responsibility-france-stabbing/ISIS claimed responsibility for the deadly stabbing attack in Marseille that left two women dead.
A terrorist who stabbed two women to death Sunday at the main train station in the southern French city of Marseille who shouted “allahu akbar!” was an Islamic State (ISIS) “soldier,” ISIS stated while taking responsibility for the attack.
French soldiers shot the man to death after the stabbings and authorities were working to determine if he had links to Islamic terrorism.
Interior Minister Gerard Collomb, who went to Marseille to meet with local authorities and troops on the scene, said police have video that shows the man attacking a woman and running away, then coming back and attacking a second woman.

The video shows the man running toward soldiers who were rushing to Marseille’s St. Charles train station. The soldiers fatally shot him and both women died of their injuries, Collomb said.
Some witnesses reported hearing the terrorist should “allahu akbar,” Collomb said.
Allahu akbar — Arabic for “God is greatest” — is a phrase often used by Muslim terrorists during attacks.

The Paris prosecutor’s office, which oversees all terror cases in France, said it had opened a counter-terrorism investigation into the Marseille attack.
The ISIS-linked Aamaq news agency said in a statement Sunday night that the terrorist was acting in response to ISIS calls to target countries in the US-led coalition fighting ISIS in Syria and Iraq.
The statement did not provide details or evidence of a direct link to the terrorist. France has been part of the anti-ISIS coalition since 2014 and has been repeatedly targeted by ISIS attacks.

Police sources told the Associated Press that one of the victims was stabbed and one had her throat slit. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to speak publicly about the investigation.
Collomb declined to provide any details about the terrorist or identify the victims.
French President Emmanuel Macron said he was “deeply outraged” by Sunday’s “barbarous” knife attack. In a tweet, Macron paid tribute to the French soldiers who responded “with cool heads and efficiency.”
The French government this month decided to maintain the military force of 7,000 soldiers that was created to protect sensitive sites after the deadly terror attacks of 2015.

Netanyahu denies Israeli involvement in Kurdish independence vote

Print Email
Netanyahu responded to conspiracy theories promoted by leaders in Muslim-majority countries that Israel is somehow behind the Kurdish drive for self-determination.

Following a recent referendum on Kurdish independence in northern Iraq, for which Israeli officials voice support, leaders throughout the Middle East have launched accusations regarding the Jewish state’s involvement in Kurdish affairs.

Among the leaders who accused Israel of working behind the scenes to aid the Kurds are Turkish President Recep Erdogan and Hassan Nasrallah, head of the Islamic terror group Hezbollah in Lebanon.

Nasrallah accused Israel of supporting Kurdish statehood, describing the independence referendum as “a U.S.-Israeli plot to carve up the region.” Erdogan on Saturday blamed Israeli secret service Mossad for Iraqi Kurdistan’s decision to become independent.

On Sunday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyau responded to these charges, noting, “I understand why those who support Hamas and want to see the Mossad everywhere that is uncomfortable for them, but Israel had no part in the Kurdish referendum, apart from the deep, natural sympathy that the people of Israel have had for many years for the Kurdish people and their aspirations.”

Last month, during his historic trip to Latin America, Netanyahu stated that Israel “supports the legitimate efforts of the Kurdish people to attain a state of its own,” but rejects the PKK’s acts of terrorism committed in the name of Kurdish statehood.

In a direct jab at Turkey, which has been the target of the PKK’s attacks, the statement, issued by the Prime Minister’s Office, said that “Israel rejects the PKK and considers it a terrorist organization, as opposed to Turkey, which supports the terror organization Hamas.”

US Ambassador: Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria ‘part of Israel’

Print Email 26 Comments
US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman supports the legal rights of Jewish communities beyond the 1967 boundaries, signaling a fresh approach to resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
In an expansive interview with Israeli media outlet Walla!, the US Ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, provided insight into the direction the US envisions for Israel as the Jewish state navigates shifting alliances in the region and its approach to resolving the Palestinian conflict. Among the topics Friedman addressed were Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria and the future of the two-state solution.
With regard to the first point, Friedman explained, “I think the settlements are part of Israel,” which “was always the expectation when [UN] Resolution 242 was adopted.” Friedman added, “The 1967 borders were viewed by everybody as not secure. There was always supposed to be some expectation of [Israeli] expansion” into Judea and Samaria.
Friedman referred to the “important nationalistic, historical, and religious significance”of these communities, commenting, “I think the settlers view themselves as Israelis, and Israel views the settlers as Israelis.”
When asked about the prospects for moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem, Friedman reiterated to Walla! that it was a question of “when not if,” and stressed that “most importantly [the US would] recognize Jerusalem as the eternal capital of the state of Israel and of the Jewish people.”

Most Arab Israelis expressed positive attitudes towards the Jewish state, with a mere 13% ranking the Palestinian conflict as their top concern.
Some 60% of Arab citizens of Israel have positive attitudes towards the state and its institutions while 37% said their view was unfavorable to Israel, according to a public opinion survey conducted in August for the Konrad Adenauer Program for Jewish-Arab Cooperation at Tel Aviv University’s Dayan Center.
The poll released Wednesday at a conference at Tel Aviv University on “citizenship identity and political participation among the Arab population” surveyed 876 citizens of Israel and 125 residents of east Jerusalem who have permanent Israeli residency but not citizenship. It had a margin of error of 2.25%.
Arik Rudnitzky, a project manager at the Konrad Adenauer Program, told Tazpit Press Service (TPS) that the conclusion of the research is that the Israeli Arabs feel generally good in Israel, but added that “attitudes toward the institutions of the State of Israel are very critical.”
Rudnitzky noted that half of those surveyed did not view the Knesset as a positive institution and only 35% viewed prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu positively.

Report: Israel working to shutter Palestinian embassy in Washington

Report: Israel working to shutter Palestinian embassy in WashingtonThe PLO's embassy in Washington (Google Street
Israel is reportedly working on a plan to shut down the Palestinian embassy in Washington.
Israel, with the help of US lawmakers, is formulating a plan to shut down the Palestinian Liberation Organization’s (PLO) embassy in Washington if the Palestinians pursue their diplomatic warfare against the Jewish state.
Israel’s Channel 11 reported Thursday that the plan was initiated a day after the Palestinians succeeded in joining Interpol, despite Israel’s efforts to against it.
The plan was reportedly discussed Wednesday during a meeting in Jerusalem between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu; President Donald Trump’s special envoy Jason Greenblatt; US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, and Israeli Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer.
According to a statement by the Prime Minister’s Office, Netanyahu raised the issue of the PLO’s call on Sunday to try Israelis before the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague, a step which violates signed peace agreements with Israel. The Israeli leader told the three diplomats that “the actions taken by the Palestinian leadership in recent days severely impairs the chances of achieving peace.”
The Palestinian diplomatic warfare “would not go unanswered,” he stated.
US lawmakers have unsuccessfully attempted to shutter the Palestinian embassy in the past. In February 2016, several congressmen took action against the PLO embassy in Washington over the Palestinians’ action against Israel at the ICC.

There will be no more uprooting of Israeli communities in exchange for a false promise of peace, Netanyahu stated.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed there will be no more uprooting of Israeli communities as part of any diplomatic solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Netanyahu made the statement on Wednesday while addressing thousands who attended a ceremony marking the 50th anniversary of Israel’s presence in Judea, Samaria, the Golan Heights and the Jordan Valley.
“We have brought about magnificent settlement in Judea and Samaria that we are maintaining and strengthening – responsibly, wisely and persistently,” Netanyahu stated.
Judea and Samaria is home to 500,000 Israelis living in some 250 communities.
“I tell you clearly and before anything: There will be no more uprooting of communities in the Land of Israel. It is not just a question of links to the homeland, though it is certainly that, but first of all, that is not the way to make peace,” Netanyahu said, adding that the decision pertains to both Jews and Arabs.

Israeli security forces arrested three Israeli Arabs who planned to carry out an attack on the Temple Mount in ISIS’ name.
The Shin Bet (Israel’s Security Agency) arrested three Israeli-Arabs earlier this month who were charged with supporting the Islamic State (ISIS) terror group. Two of them had planned to carry out a shooting attack on the Temple Mount, similar to the deadly attack perpetrated in July.
On July 14, cousins Muhammad Ahmed Muhammad Jabarin, 29, Muhammad Hamad Abdel Latif Jabarin, 19, and Muhammad Ahmed Mafdal Jabarin, 19, all residents of the northern Arab town of Umm al-Fahm, shot and killed two Israeli Druze police officers, Master Sgt. Kamil Shnaan and Master Sgt. Haiel Sitawe.
The three-member ISIS cell busted by Israel’s forces included Said Gasub Mahmoud Jabarin, 26, who was involved in planning the July attack on Temple Mount; Faris Salah Mahmoud Mahajna, 24, an ISIS supporter suspected of “possessing war material,” i.e. the weapons, and a 16-year-old minor who was also involved in planning the Temple Mount attack. The three are also residents of Umm al-Fahm.
The Shin Bet’s investigation has revealed that Said Jabarin and the minor, who was arrested with him, had planned to carry out a shooting attack. After their arrest, they turned in ammunition, including two handguns.

Prime Minister Netanyahu issued a stern warning to the Palestinians on Wednesday during a meeting with top US diplomats, saying diplomatic warfare against Israel “would not go unanswered.”
While meeting in Jerusalem with President Donald Trump’s special envoy Jason Greenblatt, US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman and Israeli Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer, the Israeli Prime Minister warned that the Palestinians’ diplomatic warfare against Israel “would not go unanswered.”
Greenblatt is on another visit to the region in an attempt to promote Trump’s regional peace initiative.
During the meeting, Netanyahu raised the issue of the Palestinians’ refusal to condemn Tuesday’s terrorist attack, in which a Palestinian murdered three Israelis and wounded a fourth at Har Adar. The prime minister also addressed the PLO’s call on Sunday to try Israelis before the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague, and the Palestinian accession to Interpol on Wednesday, a step which violates signed peace agreements with Israel.
Last week, the Palestinians sent a 700-page dossier to the ICC accusing Israel of war crimes.

A Swedish court has ruled that a violent neo-Nazi group will not be permitted to march near the Gothenburg Synagogue on Yom Kippur.
A Swedish court on Monday ruled to reroute a neo-Nazi march planned for Yom Kippur, which was slated to pass by the local synagogue in Gothenburg.
The Nordic Resistance Movement, a local neo-Nazi organization, had originally asked to march on September 30 along the city’s main street during the Gothenburg Book Fair – the largest book fair in Scandinavia, attended by some 100,000 people.
After that request was denied, the police offered an alternative route that would take the marchers in close proximity of the local synagogue on Yom Kippur, the holiest day in the Jewish calendar.
Jewish organizations condemned the decision, while the the World Jewish Congress (WJC) operated together with the Jewish community and the Swedish government to prevent the incident.
The WJC welcomed the court’s ruling, saying it was a “very correct and moral decision” to ban the neo-Nazis from marching in the proximity of a synagogue on Yom Kippur.
“Such a march would be rife with implicit dangers and traumatic historical memory, and should never have been allowed in the first place,” the WJC stated. “We hope that this will serve as an important precedent, both in Sweden and in other countries, to prevent any such event from taking place in the future.”

Former CIA agent Valerie Plame, who came under fire for retweeting a virulently anti-Semitic article, announced that she has resigned from Ploughshares Fund.
Former CIA agent Valerie Plame announced Sunday that she has resigned from Ploughshares Fund after she retweeted a virulently anti-Semitic article by a well-known critic of Israel that accused American Jews of promoting wars in the Middle East and called it “thoughtful.”
The Hill reported Monday that her resignation came after several tweets in which she apologized for sharing the “deeply offensive” article, which she described as having “anti-Semitic tropes.”
“Actions have consequences, and while I have been honored to serve on the board of the Ploughshares Fund…to avoid detracting from their mission, I have resigned,” Plame tweeted.
“I take full responsibility for my thoughtless and hurtful actions, and there are no excuses for what I did,” she said in another post.
Ploughshares Fund condemned Wilson’s tweet of the offensive article, which was written by Phillip Giraldi, another ex-CIA officer. The article was published by an online magazine called The Unz Review, a website that promotes an anti-Israel agenda and posts content that has been called anti-Semitic.
“Our board member, Valerie Plame Wilson, seriously erred in retweeting an anti-Semitic article,” the organization said in a statement on Friday.
“Ploughshares Fund condemns in the strongest terms what we believe to be white supremacist and anti-Semitic propaganda espoused by this site. The prejudices promulgated by this site are an affront to American values and human decency.”
Ploughshares Fund’s stated mission is to help “make the world more safe and secure” by funding organizations and people who promote the elimination of nuclear weapons, prevent the emergence of new nuclear states, and build regional peace.
Plame on Sunday referred to her posting of the article as “a grave mistake” and vowed to “avoid resorting to stereotypes to express my positions.”

The Yom Kippur War Miracle – Victory Against All Odds
1973 war
Chanukah
Military Miracles
yom kippur war
Many miraculous events occurred during the Yom Kippur War. As in the Chanukah story, the People of Israel were victorious despite seemingly insurmountable odds.

The 1973 Arab-Israel War – also known as the Yom Kippur War because it began on Yom Kippur, the holiest day on the Jewish calendar – lasted approximately four weeks. It was October 6, 1973, which also happened to fall that year during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

An Arab coalition led by Egypt and Syria launched a joint surprise attack against Israel. Despite the large amassing of forces along Israel’s borders prior to that day, a significant amount of misinformation and what appeared to be a lack of support for the Arab states by Russia had convinced Israel that war was not imminent. This meant that Israel was doubly unprepared for the invasion.

A couple of false alarms in both May and August of that year meant that by the time the offensive was about to be launched, Israeli intelligence had regarded the movement of troops and armaments as just another insignificant exercise.

Just as with all our wars, stories of miracles abound. The fact that Jordan chose to opt out of this war was considered by many to be a miraculous occurrence in and of itself. Jordan’s decision was due to a combination of pressure from the US to stay out of the conflict and a secret understanding between Jerusalem and Amman that if Jordan refrained from becoming involved, Israel would not attack her.

Having had nearly all of her air force destroyed by Israel in the 1967 war, the Jordanians decided not to participate. For Israel, the difference between having to fight a war on two fronts instead of three was a meaningful one and gave her a fighting chance.

Israel takes action against family of terrorist who killed 3

Israel takes action against family of terrorist who killed 3Israeli forces outside the home of terrorist Nimr Jamal
The IDF has taken several measures in response to the Palestinian terrorist attack that killed three Israelis on Tuesday.
The IDF has taken several measures against the family of Nimr Mahmoud Ahmed Jamal, a Palestinian terrorist who murdered three Israelis and seriously wounded a fourth during a shooting attack at Har Adar on Tuesday.

IDF engineers took preliminary steps by mapping out Jamal’s home in the Palestinian village of Beit Surik ahead of its demolition.

Tearing down terrorists’ homes is meant to serve as deterrence for potential terrorists plotting future attacks. The recent wave of Palestinian terror has claimed the lives of 55 victims in almost two years.

The IDF arrested two of Jamal’s brothers on suspicion that they knew of his intentions to carry out an attack. They also dismantled a mourner’s tent that was erected outside the terrorist’s house.

Israel canceled the entry permits of several of Jamal’s relatives. Jamal had entered Israel as an employee in Har Adar.

“While we are still investigating the event and its implications, we can say some things with certainty even now. One – the home of the terrorist will be demolished. Two – the IDF has already cordoned off the village. Three – all work permits for members of the terrorist’s extended family are hereby revoked,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced after the attack.

The IDF chief of staff has granted Azaria his request for clemency and shortened his sentence by four months.

IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eizenkot announced Wednesday that he has accepted a request for clemency from IDF soldier Elor Azaria and has shortened his prison term by four months.

Azaria was sentenced in February to 18 months in prison after being found guilty of manslaughter. He lost an appeal in August, and submitted a request for clemency to Eizenkot in August.

In a letter sent to Azaria, who is currently serving his prison term, Eisenkott condemned the soldier’s actions but said he took into consideration his exemplary service as a combat soldier and decided that a display of mercy was called for in this case.
With Eisenkot’s decision, Azaria is now scheduled to be released in a year. He can request to have his sentence further reduced by 50 percent, as per military regulations.
In March 2016, Azaria, a combat medic stationed in Hebron, shot a neutralized terrorist in the head as he lay wounded on the ground after committing a stabbing attack against the soldier’s colleagues.
Azaria claimed during his trial that he felt his life was in danger, saying he thought the terrorist could have been carrying a bomb on his body.

‘State of Palestine’ becomes full member of international police organization

Interpol accepted the “State of Palestine” into its ranks, despite Israel’s objections.
Israel’s steps to prevent the Palestinian Authority’s (PA) admission to the international police organization (Interpol) have failed, and the international policing body voted to give the Palestinians full membership.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had ordered the Foreign Ministry to increase its efforts to prevent the PA from joining Interpol, and Israel submitted a motion to have the vote on the Palestinian membership bid postponed. The motion was rejected and the majority of the voting member states on Wednesday backed giving the Palestinians full membership.
In a secret ballot that took place during Interpol’s annual assembly in Beijing, 75 members supported the bid, 24 voted against and 34 abstained.
Based in Lyon, France, Interpol consists of 192 member states, making it the second-largest international organization after the United Nations (UN).

Until the vote, the PA had the status of a “partially recognized state without membership.”
Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki welcomed the vote, hailing it as a Palestinian “victory.” He said the support for “Palestine’s” membership is “a vote of confidence in Palestine’s law enforcement capabilities and commitment to the core values of the organization. Palestine’s admission to Interpol is a victory for law enforcement and global cooperation.”

Two IDF soldiers were killed and four others wounded when the armored vehicle in which they were riding overturned.
Two IDF soldiers were killed and four others wounded Tuesday night when the armored vehicle in which they were riding as part of a training maneuver in the Golan Heights overturned.
The casualties were named as Lt. Avshalom Armoni, 22, from Beit Horon, and Sergeant Avinoam David Cohen, 22, from Jerusalem.
Cohen’s sister gave birth to a girl just hours after the accident occurred.
The soldiers, from the 411th artillery battalion, were riding in a mobilized artillery unit when at some point the vehicle capsized, killing an officer and an NCO, and wounding four others, two of them seriously.
The reason for the accident is yet unclear.
“This was a very serious and painful incident,” IDF spokesman Brig. Gen. Ronen Manelis stated.
The IDF announced its has launched an investigation into the incident, while all overnight training exercises involving armored vehicles are being held off until Sunday.

Saudi king rules women will be allowed to drive in kingdom

Following 30 years of campaigning, Saudi Arabia has become the last country in the world to lift its ban on women driving.

Saudi Arabia’s surprise decision to grant women the right to drive in the conservative kingdom marks a significant expansion in women’s rights, but activists said Wednesday it is also only the first step in a long list of demands for equality.
Saudi Arabia was the only country left in the world that banned women from driving. The royal decree late Tuesday comes into effect next summer, but it comes nearly three decades after women began agitating for the right to drive.
As recently as 2013, dozens of women uploaded videos online of themselves behind the wheel of a car during a campaign launched by Saudi rights activists. Some videos showed families and male drivers giving women a “thumbs-ups,” suggesting many were ready for the change.
While women in other Muslim countries drove freely, the kingdom’s blanket ban attracted negative publicity. Neither Islamic law nor Saudi traffic law explicitly prohibited women from driving, but they were not issued licenses and were detained if they attempted to drive.

In a first, US synagogue group to visit Bahrain at king’s invitation

A New York synagogue will be the first Jewish congregation to visit an Arab country in the Persian Gulf during its upcoming mission to Bahrain.
At the invitation of King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, Rabbi Marc Schneier of the Hampton Synagogue on Westhampton Beach, Long Island, New York, will lead a congregational mission to Bahrain.

It will be the first visit by a Jewish group to an Arab Gulf country.

Schneier, described on his synagogue website as “a trailblazer in the field of Muslim-Jewish relations,” has maintained a relationship with the Bahraini monarch over several years. In 2011, he was the first rabbi to be received by King Hamad at the royal palace.
The congregational mission was announced during the recent Rosh Hashana services. The purpose, Schneier told The Jerusalem Post, is to “set a paradigm for what we hope and pray for this time of year during the High Holidays.”

Iran threat looms despite fake missile test, Israel warns

While evidence mounts that Iran misrepresented their recent missile test, Israel reminds the world that the Islamic Republic remains a danger to the free world.

After a Trump administration official exposed a purported Iranian ballistic missile launch last weekend as a fraud, additional evidence has surfaced confirming that the Islamic Republic did not in fact carry out a test. Among the tip-offs that the test was fake was the lack of telltale electronic signals, which would have been picked up by US assets in the region had a ballistic missile launch actually taken place.
On Monday, the Israeli defense establishment confirmed that that Jewish state’s intelligence also did not observe any indications that Iran had actually tested a Khorramshahr ballistic missile, according to the Jerusalem Post. When operational, such missiles can carry multiple warheads and have a range of 2,000 km.
While Iranian state broadcaster IRIB carried portrayed footage of the launch as current video from an on-board camera, Fox News reported that the video was more than seven months old. Fox‘s sources were two US officials who identified the video as a failed launch in January.
Setting aside the veracity of the footage, Israeli officials have issued stern warnings regarding Iran’s nuclear ambitions and its unwavering mission to arm and fund terrorist groups on Israel’s borders.

Several rockets struck Kabul’s international airport shortly after Secretary of Defense Mattis arrived there.
At least five civilians, including a woman, were wounded after several rockets were fired toward Kabul international airport in the Afghan capital, officials said Wednesday.
The attack came as US Secretary of Defense James Mattis and NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg arrived in Kabul for a visit and just hours before they held a joint news conference with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani.
Najib Danish, spokesman for the Afghan Interior Ministry, said one of the rockets struck a home near the airport, wounding the five victims. He said one of them was a woman who was “not in a good health condition.”
Zabihullah Mujahid, Taliban spokesman, claimed responsibility for the attack on his official Twitter account.
Tumor Shah Hamedi, director of the Kabul airport, said all flights were halted as result of the attack.
Ghani said during the joint news conference at the presidential palace that Special Forces troops brought the attack under control.
