    The Netanyahu government is at risk of being toppled – over what? He took cigars? I know it may be more than that, but not much more through American eyes. He (allegedly) accepted gifts, those cigars and other things, and for that Israel, we are told, may lose the best leader it’s had in decades. The headlines read “Police call for PM Netanyahu to be indicted.” That is serious. In Israel. Not in America. In America we know a thing or two about scandals. At the moment we’re dealing with nothing else…all of it brought about by the Left, working...

In Case 1000, the “gifts affair,” it is alleged that Netanyahu improperly accepted expensive gifts from different businessmen.

    In a meeting with Putin in Moscow, Netanyahu said Persia had made “an attempt to destroy the Jewish people that did not succeed” some 2,500 years ago, an event commemorated through the Jewish holiday of Purim, which Israel will celebrate starting Saturday night and lasting in some places until Monday. “Today there is an attempt by Persia’s heir, Iran, to destroy the state of the Jews,” Netanyahu said. “They say this as clearly as possible and inscribe it on their ballistic missiles.” Adopting a conciliatory tone, Putin said that the events described by Netanyahu had taken place “in the fifth...

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Saturday that he informed Putin of Israel's intention to continue defending itself against any aggression and to prevent Iran from establishing a presence "in Syria or anywhere else." Russia backs the Assad regime and maintains a large military presence in the country. Netanyahu has met several times with Putin to coordinate military activities in the region. Russia's foreign ministry appeared to criticize Israel's actions by saying it was "absolutely unacceptable to create threats to the lives and security of Russian servicemen." Netanyahu says he also spoke to U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

    Russia on Monday said it was ready to become “an honest mediator” between the Israelis and Palestinians, a role the United States has played for years, after a vote at the UN Security Council... Washington vetoed a resolution supported by the 14 other Council members that would have required President Donald Trump to rescind his declaration of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Russia’s deputy UN ambassador Vladimir Safronkov said it was becoming more important to move “as quickly as possible towards direct Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.” He reiterated Russia’s proposal to hold a summit between the Palestinian and Israeli leaders. “We...

    The Civil Administration Higher Planning Committee is slated to meet next week and give final approval to nearly 4,000 new housing units across Judea and Samaria, including the first new construction in the Jewish community in Hevron in some four decades. On Sunday night, Channel 2 reported that the Netanyahu government has okayed the move, following delays by the Higher Planning Committee, which had originally been scheduled to approve the projects in September. The new wave of construction, totaling 3,829 homes, includes building in communities outside of the so-called “major settlement blocs”, a significant shift from the limits imposed on...

"India and Israel are walking hand in hand into the future as partners," the editorial said. Ties between the two nations have become more "visible" since Modi became prime minister in 2014 and Israeli ambassador...

    Are Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria an obstacle to peace? Are the millions of Arabs living inside Israel obstacles to peace? Prime Minister Netanyahu makes it clear that ethnic cleansing and judenrein are terms that will no longer be a part of the future of the Land of Israel. Ethnic cleansing for peace – what the Arab side proposes – is nothing more than blatant hatred of Jews and Israel.

    ..... It’s hard to believe that a Jewish Prime Minister does not allow planning and building in Jerusalem neighborhoods and legal Jewish communities with an approved city building plan. Netanyahu’s behavior is strange. 21 years ago, when he was chosen as Prime Minister, he demanded that all building in Judea and Samaria and eastern Jerusalem get his approval, and even passed a government decision along these lines (decision “number 50”). There were those who will say that Netanyahu is careful, and there are those who will say that Netanyahu suffers from a sense of fear, when it is he who...

Al-Agha noted that this is not the first time that Israel has sought to dismantle UNRWA over allegations that the UN agency incites against Israel and supports terrorism. He added that the Palestinian people are devoted to a solution to the “refugee problem” in accordance with Resolution 194 of the UN General Assembly in the context of a comprehensive agreement that...

The two conservative leaders have much in common. They are political insurgents who draw their support from a rougher working class overlooked and despised by leftist elites. The polls said that Netanyahu and Trump would lose their respective elections. Instead they won big. They prevailed despite accusations of bigotry, attacks by celebrities and a torrent of fake media scandals. The media decided that the big story of Trump’s arrival in...

    During his visit to Jerusalem on Monday, President Trump told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Nentanyahu he did not mention Israel during a recent Oval Office meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. "I never mentioned the word or the name Israel," President Trump said.

The White House does not deny the intelligence was shared, arguing the President has the authority to share or declassify any information he's sees...
