    Lebanon seems to be having a flag sale. Iranian flags, Hezbollah, the UN, Spain, Palestinian flags. They are all flying provocatively along the border with the northern Israeli community of Metulla. Just meters from the fence that separates the countries, not far from the site of a 1985 terror attack, Hezbollah has festooned the roads with signs of its presence. It’s purposely done so Israeli residents can see the flags and the billboards next to them. In Metulla there is a memorial for the 12 Israeli soldiers killed in the 1985 suicide bombing, while just across the border a huge...

    Should the United States pay Palestinian terrorists? For the overwhelming majority of Americans and Israelis this is a rhetorical question. The position of the American people was made clear – yet again – last week when US President Donald Trump’s senior envoys Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt met with Palestinian Authority chairman and PLO chief Mahmoud Abbas and repeated Trump’s demand that the PA cut off the payments. Not only did Abbas reject their demand, he reportedly accused the presidential envoys of working as Israeli agents. Abbas’s treatment of Kushner and Greenblatt was in line with his refusal to even...

    In his memoir Hillbilly Elegy, J.D. Vance recalled his upbringing in Middletown, Ohio, explaining the psyche of communities neglected by the “Obama economy” as jobs were lost to the effects of globalization. The election of Donald Trump shed light on these communities of disenfranchised voters of Middle America. As globalization moved jobs overseas, industrial manufacturing communities in the U.S. fell on hard times. Blue-collar factory jobs in places like Macomb County, Michigan; Youngstown, Ohio; and South Bend, Indiana gave way to drug use, joblessness and despair. We are now faced with the question of how to help these communities going...

    Signs were gathering in Washington and the Middle East Tuesday, June 26 that the Trump Administration was preparing a substantial military operation against the Syrian army and Bashar Assad's allies, such as the foreign pro-Iranian Shiite militias and Hizbullah. Some US military sources suggested than an American preemptive strike was in store in the coming hours to prevent Assad's army from again resorting to chemical warfare against his people. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said Monday night... The US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley then further stoked the tensions...... Haley's tweet ended with the cliffhanger: "Stay tuned...
  • Haley: Russia and Iran to share blame for any chemical attacks by Assad

    The US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley declared on Twitter that any chemical weapons attack by Bashar Assad's Syrian government on his own citizens "will be blamed on Assad but also on Russia and Iran who support him killing his own people." Haley's tweet ended with the words: "Stay tuned for more tomorrow." It followed a White House warning that Assad would pay a heavy price if he again resorted to chemical weapons against his own people. The US military believes the preparations are similar to those made before the April 4 chemical weapons attack......

    Originally written for the Investigative Project on Terrorism. Last month’s suicide bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester wasn’t the first time an Islamist terrorist targeted young people out for a night of fun. In 2001, a Hamas-affiliated terrorist blew himself up outside the Dolphinarium, a Tel Aviv nightclub, killing 21 Israelis, including 16 teenagers. But news coverage of the two massacres was strikingly different, as the Manchester attack generated exponentially more attention. The New York Times, for example, offered a handful of small accounts about the Tel Aviv attack. But the Manchester bombing generated dozens of wire service...

    ... "The [Golan] separation line was created in 1974 with Israeli and Syrian agreement and it was for many years the most quiet border Israel had. Now, if on the other side of the divide you don't have an entity that respects agreement on the separation line because its policy is to not agree with Israel on anything, that Israel doesn't exist, than this is something Israel need not and should not tolerate," Halevy stressed. Israel signaled this in January 2015 when an airstrike against two cars on the Syrian side of the Golan killed six Hezbollah fighters and a...

    TEHRAN — Iran held major anti-Israel rallies across the country Friday, with protesters chanting “Death to Israel” and declaring that destroying the Jewish state is “the Muslim world’s top priority.” Iranians participating in Quds Day rallies also called for unity among pro-Palestinian groups against the “child-murdering” Israeli government, according to Iran’s Tasnim News Agency. Marchers in Tehran headed from various points of the city to the Friday prayer ceremony at Tehran University. Similar demonstrations were held in other cities and towns in Iran. Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard used the demonstration in the capital’s Valiasr Square to showcase three surface-to-surface ballistic...

    A meeting between Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and senior White House official Jared Kushner reportedly left the Palestinian leader fuming and refusing to agree to watered-down demands that Ramallah cut off payments for some convicted terrorists and their families. According to Palestinian sources quoted in Hebrew and Arabic media Friday, Abbas and his advisers accused the US of taking Israel’s side and refused a demand to stop paying salaries to several hundred prisoners serving time for the most serious crimes. Kushner, who is US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and chief Middle East adviser, met with Abbas in Ramallah on...

    Muslim scholar in Jordan attacks 'Palestinians' for distorting Koran, Jews given Israel 'until Day of Judgement.' Allah has promised Israel to the Jews -- so says Sheikh Ahmad Adwan, a Muslim scholar living in Jordan, who declared on his Facebook page recently that "Palestine" doesn't exist. Blogger Elder of Ziyon translated Arab news sources that this Saturday reported on Adwan's statements, in which he quotes the Koran saying Allah assigned Israel to the Jews until the Day of Judgement (Sura 5 Verse 21), and that Jews are the inheritors of Israel (Sura 26 Verse 59). "I say to those who...

    WASHINGTON – Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-Colo.) told PJM that “nothing,” including President Trump’s decision to delay moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, is going to make the Palestinians “be more conciliatory” toward Israel. Trump, who pledged to move the embassy during the presidential campaign, decided not to order its relocation at this time. "President Trump made this decision to maximize the chances of successfully negotiating a deal between Israel and the Palestinians, fulfilling his solemn obligation to defend America's national security interests," White House press secretary Sean Spicer said in a statement. Lamborn said the embassy should not...

    The Knesset on Wednesday approved in a preliminary hearing MK Bezalel Smotrich's (Jewish Home) proposal to mandate that suits against Israeli authorities in Judea and Samaria be dealt with like the same type of suits elsewhere in Israel: in regional courts and not in the Supreme Court. This proposal would significantly lessen the Supreme Court's involvement in property and construction cases in Judea and Samaria, allowing the problems to be dealt with in a more legal and less political fashion. It would also significantly lessen the load on the Supreme Court, shortening the wait time for other cases. In his...

    Turkey is spending tens of millions of dollars to gain a foothold inside Israel’s capital city and to stir up tensions between Arab residents and Israelis, a new investigative report claims. According to the report, set to be published in full by journalist Nadav Shragi this coming Friday in Yisrael Hashavua, since 2004 some $63 million from Turkish NGOs and the Turkish government have gone to organizations in eastern Jerusalem dedicated to “defending and strengthening the Muslim heritage and character of Jerusalem. Some of the funds have been transferred by the Turkish government through the Turkish International Cooperation and Development...

    Though the concept has yet to find its big break, defense contractors continue to expand on the idea of highly mobile weapon systems that meet the size and weight restrictions of standard shipping containers. Now, Israel has tested such a system and says it has buyers already in line. On June 20, 2017, Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) said it had successfully test-fired its Long-Range Artillery (LORA) system from a containerized launcher on the back of a truck sitting on the deck of a cargo ship. The state-operated firm first unveiled the mobile ballistic missile back in 2006. The experiment, which...

According to the SITE Intelligence Group, ISIS identified the attackers and referred to them as “lions of the Caliphate”. If authentic, this is the first time that ISIS has claimed a terrorist attack in Israel. Earlier on Friday, Hamas welcomed the attack but did not claim it. …

    London’s Mayor Sadiq Khan has been slammed by members of the capital’s Jewish community over his refusal to ban Sunday’s anti-Israel al-Quds Day march and its traditional display of flags supporting the Hezbollah terrorist organization. Raphi Bloom, chairman of North West Friends of Israel group, told Breitbart News that despite repeated lobbying of Mr. Khan and a petition supported by almost 20,000 signatures calling for the event to be cancelled, the city’s leader has remained steadfast in his refusal to intervene. “Hezbollah is a proscribed terrorist organisation. It makes NO distinction between its armed and political wing, yet its supporters...

    ..... 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...
