    The chief Palestinian Authority (PA) negotiator Saeb Erekat claimed that PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas is willing to meet Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu “anywhere in the world”. “I challenge Mr. Netanyahu [to meet Abbas], officially. He can choose any country, any country on earth. Moscow, Beijing, London, Berlin,” said Erekat, secretary-general of the Palestine Liberation Organization’s (PLO) Executive Committee, in an interview with German broadcaster Deutsche Welle. “He will meet him. This is a challenge, a declared challenge,” he added. The Israel- PA peace process has been frozen since 2014, when Abbas breached conditions of talks that were ongoing at the...

    Police and the Israel Securities Authority published their recommendations on Sunday within the framework of the investigation of the “Case 4000” (the "Bezeq-Walla affair"), after they completed the investigation into the affair.

In addition, against Sara Netanyahu, an evidentiary basis has formed for an indictment over offenses of taking bribes (collectively), fraud and breach of...

    A coalition of women's rights organizations filed an appeal to the High Court of Justice arguing that Israel's recently-relaxed gun laws are causing more women to be murdered. According to Ynet, the ten different organizations say that a recent uptick of murders are the direct result of a decision by Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan to allow veterans of IDF infantry units to obtain personal handgun permits. In addition, the appeal claims that 40% of all women are murdered in Israel by handguns compared to only 28% in the OECD. "There is a clear and proven connection between the extent...

    President Donald Trump has reportedly shelved his ‘deal of the century’ peace plan, at least for now, Palestinian Authority media outlets reported on Thursday. The decision was taken after Ron Dermer, the Israeli ambassador to the United States, reportedly recommended that the White House postpone the publication of the initiative because of the political and security crisis in Israel, according to the Palestinian Authority paper Al-Quds. An unnamed Israeli diplomatic source said Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu "prefers no ‎announcement of the plan whatsoever, especially now, amid the ‎recent developments in the region and the political ‎crisis in Israel." The Trump...

    On Monday morning, during a routine morning shift at the Qalandiya crossing in northern Jerusalem, an Arab woman arrived at the checkpoint. When she put her belongings in for inspection, the combat soldier from the "Erez" battalion, Sergeant Anton Goltzman, saw in the mirror that there was a sharp object in her bag that aroused his suspicion. Anton immediately reported to the war room and closed the crossing. When her bag was checked a knife was discovered inside a Pringles container. "When we opened the bag, we saw nothing but a few personal belongings and a box of snacks,"...

    Video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VYRKtUrnuw Tensions have risen in Tijuana as members of the Central American migrant caravan continue to arrive at the Mexican border city, while US troops continue to tighten security along the frontier. On Sunday, anti-caravan protesters chanted: “Out Hondurans, we don’t want you here”, “Tijuana first” and “Long live Mexico”, and waved Mexican flags and signs reading “no to the invasion” and “no more migrants”. The group, which at its height numbered about 300, gathered in front of a statue of the Aztec warrior Cuauhtémoc before making their way to a sports complex serving as a temporary shelter to...

    Kulanu party leader Moshe Kahlon told Prime Minister Netanyahu that he will not accept Jewish Home Chairman Naftali Bennett serving as defense minister, following the resignation of current defense minister, Avigdor Liberman. On Wednesday, Bennett issued an ultimatum to the Prime Minister, saying his Jewish Home faction will quit the coalition if he is not appointed defense minister. If Bennett's ultimatum holds, Kahlon's veto likely signals that early elections are on the way. "Bennett doesn't have it coming to get the Defense Ministry portfolio. I'm opposed to it," Kahlon told Netanyahu. Bennett told confidants in response that he will not...

    US President Donald Trump was forced to cancel his attendance on Saturday at a commemoration in France for US soldiers and marines killed in World War I because rain made it impossible to arrange transport. “[The attendance of the president and first lady] has been canceled due to scheduling and logistical difficulties caused by the weather,” the White House said according to Reuters, adding that Chief of Staff John Kelly, who is a former general, went instead. While the president was scheduled to attend the ceremony at the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery in Belleau, rain and low clouds prevented his helicopter...

    An Arab newspaper reported on Saturday that Israel and Qatar are hammering out a deal that would allow Hamas to operate a sea crossing between Gaza and Cyprus. According to the Lebanese Al Akhbar, the prospective seaport is part of a wider Egyptian-brokered cease-fire between Hamas and Israel. While Hamas demands that the crossing be monitored through video cameras, Israel wants both Israeli forces and international elements to monitor the seaport to prevent weapons smuggling. The report comes as a long-term cease-fire between Israel and Hamas appears to be gaining traction. A central part of the deal has been Qatar's...

    An avowed Nazi running as a Republican lost a House race in suburban Chicago on Tuesday. Arthur Jones, who called the Holocaust "the biggest, blackest lie in history" and described himself as a former leader of the American Nazi Party, lost by a 50-point margin to incumbent Democrat Dan Lipinski. Jones still managed to get more than 40,000 votes, according to official figures. The 70-year-old secured the Republican nomination in March, when the party did not bother to put up any other candidate in the heavily-Democratic congressional district. Jones's primary win was a major embarrassment for party leaders. They disavowed...

    Jewish Home Chairman Naftali Bennett blasted Saturday evening's memorial rally as a "shameful leftist demonstration" after Likud MK Tzachi Hanegbi was roundly booed by the assembled crowd during his address. "The right did not murder Rabin but Yigal Amir," said Bennett. "As a right-wing leader who opposes a Palestinian state, I am tired of the annual false accusations of the left." "Rightists do not need to come to a demonstration whose goal is to denounce the right. The lesson of the extreme left: The right is to blame. My lesson: neither violence nor civil war. Choose," continued Bennett. Minister Gila...

    President Trump last spring pardoned Dinesh D’Souza, the conservative commentator and filmmaker who pleaded guilty in 2014 to making illegal campaign contributions. D’Souza has been criticized even by fellow conservatives for his frequently racially-charged public output, such as his decision to criticize former president Barack Obama’s use of a selfie stick by tweeting, “You can take the boy out of the ghetto…” and his repeated claims that Obama’s policies were steered by his Kenyan father’s anti-colonialism. While most of his output centered on critiques of liberalism, D’Souza’s long career as a pundit and writer has also led him to make...

Bowers later shot and wounded four police officers, before he was wounded and taken into custody. Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn, who is running for Senator Bob Corker’s Senate seat next month, held a campaign event...
