    Arutz Sheva was at the scene as hundreds of concerned Jews gathered on Tuesday in the Samaria town of Givat Assaf, located north of Jerusalem near Beit El, to join in a prayer rally to save the community from destruction. The far-left group Peace Now seven years ago petitioned for the town's destruction claiming it was built on Arab-owned land; residents argue it was not privately owned and therefore can easily be recognized as state land, adding that nearly all of the land was purchased and legally registered by residents in the state land registry. In a court discussion on...

She was buried in the desert far away from her home village, and according to reports, her family was not permitted to be involved in her funeral.

    Hundreds of Likud members took part in a meeting of the party's Central Committee in Ashkelon on Monday, where they passed a party proposal obligating the toppling the Hamas terrorist organization in Gaza in the next counter-terror operation.

The statement refers to the perceived lack of decisive military action in Operation Protective Edge, the third such operation in Gaza, which ended with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu sealing a ceasefire...

The PM has been at loggerheads with Lapid over the new budget proposals, causing political gridlock; last Wednesday's budget meeting was pushed off to this coming Sunday...

    Benjamin Netanayu's days as Israeli prime minister may be numbered following his agreement with Hamas for an extended ceasefire, says Danny Danon, a Likud party member of the Knesset and Netanyahu's former deputy minister of defense. Netanyahu inexplicably accepted the ceasefire even though a majority of the cabinet members would have wholeheartedly voted no, Danon explained Wednesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV. "We are disappointed … You fight with the Hamas you don't negotiate with the Hamas. You don't negotiate with a terrorist organization," Danon said. "We should fight against the Hamas.

    NY TIMES ^ | 8/10/14
    If body-counts and destroyed weaponry are the main criteria for victory, Israel is the clear winner in the latest confrontation with Hamas. There’s no doubt that Israel could conquer the entire Gaza Strip and completely wipe out Hamas’s military apparatus. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has chosen not to do so and now enjoys his highest approval ratings ever. But counting bodies is not the most important criterion in deciding who should be declared the victor. Much more important is comparing each side’s goals before the fighting and what they have achieved. Seen in this light, Hamas won.

Prime Minister Netanyahu’s “poll numbers are a lot higher than mine” and “were greatly boosted by the war in Gaza,” Obama said. “And so if he doesn’t feel some internal pressure, then it’s hard...

In response to a question, Netanyahu said that Israel has embarked on a gradual process of undoing the harm done by the 2005 unilateral Gaza withdrawal known as the Disengagement, which ended up allowing Hamas to take over Gaza. At the time, he noted, he had warned that the vacuum left behind by Israel would be filled by Hamas, which...

He has warned repeatedly how a bad deal with Iran over its nuclear program can have catastrophic consequences for international peace and security. Unless and until Iran is verifiably stripped entirely of its nuclear enrichment capabilities, he believes, the...

    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and U.S. President Barack Obama are not known to have had a good relationship, but the American president seems to have taken it a bit too far. In a new book that was released Tuesday, Obama is quoted as expressing what he really thinks about Netanyahu during his 2012 presidential campaign. According to the book, “Double Down,” Obama said that "We all know Bibi Netanyahu is a pain in the a**" when discussing the conflict between the Israelis and the Arabs. "Double Down" was written by MSNBC correspondents Mark Halperin and John Heilemann and it reveals...

    U.S. President Barack Obama spoke to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu about Iran on Monday, AFP reports, a day after Netanyahu warned that Tehran could convert uranium into weapons-grade material within weeks. The White House said in a short statement that the leaders discussed Iran, Israeli-Palestinian Authority peace efforts and other key issues. Netanyahu warned on Sunday that Iran is capable of converting low-grade uranium to material suitable for use in a weapons program with weeks -- even as Washington pursues diplomatic efforts to ease the nuclear showdown. "The important part stems from technological improvements which allow Iran to enrich uranium...

    I recently read a hundred-page book by a wonderful American historian who passed away nearly 50 years ago. His name was Will Durant and he wrote many books. He wrote an eleven volume history of civilization, but at the end of his life, he wrote a hundred-page book, The Lessons of History. You should read it. Every line is carved from the stone of truth, and I will give you the bad news and the good news. The bad news is that when you finish reading this book, you understand that in history, greater numbers rule. They matter. But here...

    In a surprisingly powerful and frank speech at Bar Ilan University, delivered in a calm and almost informal manner, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu tied between the Palestinian national movement and the Nazi regime in Germany. At the heart of the oration was the determination that Arab rhetoric notwithstanding, the “territories” and “settlements” are not the heart of the territorial conflict between Jews and Arabs – but that the conflict stems from the historic refusal of the Arabs to accept a Jewish state. Netanyahu provided quotes and evidence showing that the supreme leader of the Palestinian Arabs in the first half...

    In his speech Tuesday before the UN General Assembly, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu tried to get the Americans to stop their collective swooning at the sight of an Iranian president who smiled in their general direction. "Ladies and gentlemen," the premier warned, "I wish I could believe [President Hassan] Rouhani, but I don't because facts are stubborn things. And the facts are that Iran's savage record flatly contradicts Rouhani's soothing rhetoric." He might have saved his breath. The Americans weren't interested. Two days after Netanyahu's speech, US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel issued a rejoinder to Netanyahu. Hagel said, "I...

And we have just had a very constructive luncheon with the President and a very important meeting before that with a larger group of people. And now the Prime Minister and I will talk about both Iran, the Middle East peace process, Syria, and issues of concern.” Video .....

    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has sent his condolences to the Hazan family of Bat Yam, whose son Tomer Hazan, 20, an IDF soldier, was kidnapped and murdered by a terrorist on Friday. The slaying was part of the “ceaseless” terror war that Israel faces, he said. Israel will continue to fight terrorists with all the means at its disposal, he wrote. Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon blamed the Palestinian Authority for the slaying. “This cruel murder is the result of the ongoing incitement by the Palestinian leadership,” he accused. “Abu Mazen [Mahmoud Abbas] lends support to these horrific acts when,...
