    The idea behind the children’s homes in the old kibbutzim, where the entire community would raise its children rather than their parents, refuses to die. The left-wing organization “Anu” (We), which has ties to the New Israel Fund, sent an email to journalists in Israel today, with a link to the questionnaire on “The Public Debate on Early Childhood Care.” “In the past year, a large group of organizations has joined together to raise the issue of state responsibility for children from birth until the age of 3,” the email reads.”We would appreciate if you could answer a brief survey...

    The West Bank-based Palestinian Authority has told Israel that it will stop paying for electricity supplied to the Gaza Strip, Israeli officials say. There was no confirmation from the PA. But President Mahmoud Abbas has threatened "unprecedented steps" to end the political division with the rival Hamas movement, which dominates Gaza. Hamas called Thursday's move "a grave escalation and an act of madness".

    Israel shot down "a target" over the Golan Heights, hours after it was accused of a missile strike at a military site near Damascus international airport. Israel deployed its Patriot missile defence system and media reported the target was a drone. The earlier strike had damaged what Syrian rebels said was an arms depot run by Lebanon's Hezbollah movement. Israel said the explosion was "consistent" with its policy. But it stopped short of confirming it was responsible

    A Patriot missile intercepted a Syrian drone that entered Israeli airspace on Thursday evening, the army said. According to the IDF, the missile successfully downed the unmanned aerial vehicle over the Golan Heights. “The IDF will not allow any breach of Israel’s airspace and will act against any attempt of infiltration,” the army said in a statement. According to the IDF, the Syrian UAV was under “full [Israeli Air Force] surveillance” while it was in Israeli airspace. It was not initially clear if the aircraft was Russian or Syrian, but the army later confirmed that it was Syrian. The army...

    TEL AVIV – The Trump administration is gearing up for major cuts in U.S. foreign aid across the world with the notable exception of the Palestinian territories, which will receive increased funding, State Department documents obtained by Foreign Policy magazine show. The documents, part of an internal budget proposal for 2018, seem to confirm the State Department and USAID’s 28 percent budget cut announced in March. While many countries will suffer from major cutbacks or else have aid cancelled entirely, funds to the West Bank and the Gaza Strip will see an increase of 4.6 percent for the 2018 fiscal...

    As the NBA prepares to bring its Basketball Without Borders program to Israel this summer, league officials hope that the first trip to the country can help bring children together during a time of increasing tension. Basketball Without Borders has visited cities across the globe since 2001, using the sport to promote cultural understanding and active living. The first camp was held in Italy, but brought together Vlade Divac and Toni Kukoc, teammates on the former Yugoslavian national team that grew estranged during the political turmoil that ensued as the country fractured. Now the NBA and FIBA are going to...

    We are certainly living in interesting time. During this week's update, entitled the "Super Mighty Update", John looks at the world food situation, a seminar on LGBTQ-(XYZ) issues by the National Union of Teachers (NUT)'s, the situation with Erdogen and the rise of Turkey, the crazy teachings of Victoria Osteen and Steven Furtick, and the ultimate little crazy man from North Korea who vows to order a "Super-Mighty Preemptive Strike" that will "turn the USA to ashes." John's solemn conclusion is one of not only our own vertical alignment with our Creator, but one that is beckoning us to seek...

    President Donald Trump commemorated Holocaust Remembrance Day with a speech hosted by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum on Tuesday. The keynote speech was part of the museum’s unveiling of its new conservation and research center, which is home to a collection of artifacts donated by those who survived Adolf Hitler’s massacre of Jews during World War II. "As president of the United States, I will always stand with the Jewish people. And I will always stand with our great friend and partner the state of Israel," Trump said. "Today, we remember the six million Jewish men, women and children...

    UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres sought to reassure international Jewish community leaders on Sunday that he would stand up against any perceptions of anti-Israel bias at the world organization. Guterres spoke amid a deepening row over alleged bias within the UN following US pressure, exacerbated last month when a UN rights expert issued a blistering criticism of Israel's policies. Guterres said he would "guarantee" that those working under him would abide by principles that he considers right.

    An immediate retraction, correction and apology must be made by the UN Secretariat An official United Nations document published by the Division for Palestinian Rights of the United Nations Secretariat contains a deliberately altered record of a 1922 parliamentary House of Lords debate on the Balfour Declaration. The Balfour Declaration—dated 2 November 1917 - called for the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people—it being clearly understood that nothing would be done which might prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in...

    Russia and Turkey held joint naval drills in the Black Sea region Wednesday as the nations found themselves aligned with opposing sides in conflicts in Europe and the Middle East. Russia's Black Sea Fleet joined the Turkish navy in the strategic body of water, which has been a source of heightened tensions due to parallel military exercises by Russia and members of NATO, of which Turkey was a part. Russia deployed its Kalibr cruise missile-equipped Admiral Grigorovich frigate, Udaloy-class Vice Admiral Zakharin destroyer and Raptor patrol boat to participate in the operations while Turkey sent its Barbados frigate and the...
