    NEW YORK – The liberal, Reform, Conservative and secular parts of the American Jewish community may become more distant from Israel as the country’s demography becomes more Orthodox and nationalistic, according to a report presented to the Cabinet on Sunday. Results from the 12th Annual Assessment of the Situation and Dynamics of the Jewish People, put together by The Jewish People Policy Institute, were offered by JPPI Co-Chairman Ambassador Dennis Ross and President Avinoam Bar-Yosef. Bar-Yosef explained that while there is significant support for Israel in North America, it isn’t compensating for “the young generation of liberal and secular American...

Recep Tayyip ErdoÄźan: The measures we have taken are only the beginning.

Israel must realize that it is accountable for its actions, past and present. It will realize this.

    JERUSALEM -- Egypt is now on the front lines of the battle against ISIS, and some of its leaders are making new accusations about the Obama administration's war on terror. They accuse the United States of playing a double game, fighting terrorists abroad while meeting with them at home. A recent White House meeting between President Barack Obama and Muslim leaders sent shockwaves through the Middle East, specifically in Israel and Egypt. The cause of the uproar: the group included leaders with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. "We just don't understand because we know the history of the Muslim Brothers,"...

    Using funding from Western taxpayers, and Americans in particular, United Nations schools are teaching Arab children to glorify terrorism and wage constant war against their Jewish neighbors, according to a new film. In the explosive documentary released late last month by a pro-Israel watchdog group, schools run by the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) are even exposed offering military-style training to young children. That training, combined with a curriculum that teaches fervent hatred of Jews, is a recipe for disaster, the producer said, citing the recent wave of attacks.

    (CNSNews.com) – The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) estimates that the number of American Muslims registered to vote has jumped from around 500,000 in 2012 to at least 824,000 ahead of November’s election – a 64 percent increase. CAIR said Tuesday that could be a possible indicator of increased political involvement due to anti-Muslim rhetoric by “public figures.” It did not name names, but presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump has come under fire for some campaign statements relating to Islam – especially his call for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the U.S. because of terrorism concerns.

Iran wants the Muslim Brotherhood restored to power; Russia is worried about civil war; most of the West wants new elections and an end to military rule. The US is currently debating on whether to call the coup a coup at all, as that designation would force a suspension of American aid to the Egyptian military. The Obama administration demanded the restoration of “a democratically elected civilian government” rather than “the democratically elected civilian government,” a nuance that was not lost...

The debate on foreign aid at the UK House of Commons was prompted by a petition which garnered nearly a quarter of a million signatures - well over the 150,000 needed to force a nonbinding parliamentary discussion on the issue. That petition calls for the UK government to end its policy of spending a fixed 0.7% of national income on overseas aid, and was launched after an expose...

Exactly a week later two Palestinian men sat down in a café, ordered dessert, pulled handguns from beneath their dark suit jackets and began firing at everyone in sight. Four civilians were murdered and more than a dozen wounded before the killers were stopped – one shot by a security...

Yet such expressions of joy and satisfaction following murderous acts of terrorism are hardly new, and have become a frequent occurrence after such attacks.

For one young woman, however, these spontaneous expressions of celebration were not merely disgusting or disturbing – they...

    Shoppers who were strolling through Tel Aviv’s upscale Sarona Market on Wednesday when they suddenly encountered two (and possibly three) Palestinian Muslims observing Ramadan. The death toll is now four, and as five other people were wounded, it could rise. Ramadan has just begun, and there have already been jihad murders in Bangladesh, Egypt, and Jordan, among others -- and now Israel. There will be many more.

    TEL AVIV, Israel — Two Israeli battalions were being sent to the West Bank Thursday after two Palestinians fatally shot four people at a Tel Aviv mall. The buildup would include hundreds of troops in "accordance with situation assessments," according to the Israel Defence Forces statement. They would not give any more details on the numbers involved. Israel also revoked 83,000 permits for Palestinians living in Gaza and the occupied West Bank to travel abroad and attend Ramadan prayers in Jerusalem. In the past, restrictions on access to the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, the holy site in the heart of Jerusalem's...

    Word is going around diplomatic circles that the Obama administration is planning a November surprise for Israel. Here’s what is said to be going on: The Paris peace conference last Friday, to which Israel and the Palestinians were not even invited, will end up exerting enormous pressure on Israel to create a Palestinian state. This renewed pressure will come despite evidence that a Palestinian state in the West Bank will quickly be dominated by genocidal Hamas, which is a threat to Israel and a disaster for the Palestinians. This will lead, in all likelihood, to a United Nations Security Council...

    He is the head of the snake. There will be the usual roundups after Wednesday's bloodshed in Tel Aviv - four dead, more wounded from the hands of Palestinian Arab terrorists. Two men are said to be responsible for this act of savagery against innocent civilians enjoying a day at the Sarona Market in the heart of town. This was Israel's mistake. The mistake was to grant respectability to a group of thugs. They were captured. They are in custody and Israel's law enforcement and security services are in the process of finding out who they are, where they came...

    Hamas issued a video for Ramadan, with religious and spiritual imagery and music juxtaposed with terrorism activities like tunnel building and rocket deployment. On the Qassam Brigades website, they wrote that "Ramadan is the month of jihad, fortification and victory over the enemy." The importance of honor and shame comes through from this sentence: "Jihad for the sake of Allah is the pinnacle of Islam, and it allows one to gain honor in this world and the hereafter; it is one of the best tasks and acts of worship, and Muslims are only humiliated when they abandon the jihad." Hamas...
