    The Hill ^ | 10/21/19 | Morgan Chalfant
    President Trump said Monday that Israel and Jordan had asked him to leave a limited number of troops in Syria. He also said he doesn’t believe it will be necessary to leave U.S. troops in Syria except to secure oil fields, describing the region as “very dangerous territory.” "I don't think it's going to be necessary. I don't want to leave any troops there. That's very dangerous territory," Trump told reporters during a cabinet meeting. "I don't think it's necessary other than we secure the oil. It's a little different section, but we need to secure the oil." “The other...

    INDIANOLA, Iowa — Elizabeth Warren issued a warning to Israel if it continues building settlements in the West Bank. The Massachusetts senator was asked after a town hall in Iowa whether she was open to making U.S. aid conditional on an agreement with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to halt construction in a territory Israel won in a defensive war in 1967, which is home to about 3 million Palestinians and roughly 400,000 Jews. "Right now, Netanyahu says that he is going to take Israel in a direction of increasing settlements. That does not move us toward a two-state solution....

    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu returned the mandate to form a government to President Reuven Rivlin minutes after the end of the Simhat Torah holiday Monday night. President Reuven Rivlin received the message from Netanyahu. He will hold consultations with faction representatives and by law has three days to give the mandate to another candidate.

    Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Michigan) has received a lot of criticism for the surpassing crudity of her declaration about the President — “We’re going to impeach the motherf***er”– and in the last few days for offering the phrase for sale on a t-shirt — but less attention has been given to the company she keeps. As far back as her swearing-in, and at a private dinner she held that same day, many unsavory “Palestinian” activists were in attendance. It should be remembered that at her victory party, Tlaib wrapped herself not in the American, but in the “Palestinian” flag, and...

    Michigan Independent Rep. Justin Amash blasted former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as a “Donald Trump asset,” arguing in a Friday night Twitter post that Clinton’s criticism of Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard will only “drive many people into the arms of Donald Trump.” “The thing we know for sure is that Hillary Clinton is a Donald Trump asset,” Amash, a frequent Trump critic who recently left the Republican Party to become an Independent, tweeted Friday night. “Hillary does — and did — drive many people into the arms of Donald Trump. Her attack on Tulsi does likewise. In my...

    President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign believes the ongoing fight over impeachment will rally the party’s base and make the difference in key races next year. Members of the Trump campaign’s communications team told MLive that House Democrats only flipped Republican seats in 2018 because 8.8 million people who voted for Trump in 2016 stayed home during the midterm elections. Tim Murtaugh, communications director for Trump’s 2020 campaign, said House Democrats’ ongoing impeachment inquiry will bolster Trump’s prospects of reelection and GOP candidates’ chances of victory down the ballot. In 2018, GOP candidates lost races for all statewide offices, control of...

    The first member of the House of Representatives of Palestinian origin, Rashida Tlaib managed to change the momentum on the Palestinian question. She is fighting tooth and nail, with three other Democratic women representatives, to get Donald Trump removed from office. Michigan, bordering Canada, is best known for its once flourishing automotive industry. But the 2008 election of a Muslim woman of Palestinian origin to the Michigan House of Representatives revealed another aspect: Michigan’s strong Arab-American community. “Miss First” elected with 84% of the vote The eldest daughter of a Palestinian couple of modest background, Rashida Tlaib is the only...

    The Club for Growth, which opposed Trump in the 2016 primary, is spending $40,000 to show the ad in Utah. The Club for Growth, a conservative advocacy group, is going up with TV ads attacking Sen. Mitt Romney — a preemptive warning shot against fellow Republicans who are considering getting behind impeachment. The 30-second commercial, which will begin running Thursday digitally and on Fox News stations in Utah, portrays Romney as a sunglasses-wearing spy and accuses him of being a “Democrat secret asset” who is “plotting to take down President Trump with impeachment.” The move comes as the first-term Utah...

    House Democrats believe they have the 217 votes needed to pass articles of impeachment against President Trump stemming from his Ukraine call -- enough votes to impeach Trump and send articles to the Senate -- even before their planned hearings or formal investigation. A senior member of the House Democratic Caucus told Fox News on Sunday it's unlikely House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., will give in to the president's demand for an "inquiry vote." The source said that while leadership hasn't officially whipped or nose-counted a vote to "impeach," they believed the numbers were there based on the 227 votes...

    White House senior adviser Jared Kushner will lead a US delegation to Israel at the end of the month to meet Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Blue and White chairman Benny Gantz, a senior administration official said on Thursday. Kushner has been leading President Donald Trump's effort to develop a peace plan for Israelis and Palestinians. After proposing a $60 billion aid package for the region last summer, he has yet to unveil a proposed political plan that gets at the thorniest issues in the decades-old conflict, with Netanyahu struggling to form a governing coalition. The official, speaking on condition...

    The Media Line ^ | June 17, 2007 | Malcolm Lowe
    Why, it is often asked, is the Arab-Israel conflict so intractable? Part of the reason is that the various protagonists live each in a mental framework that ignores fundamental facts. Mostly these facts have been reported in the public media. But their significance is overlooked because it lies outside the virtual realities that those protagonists have created for themselves over long years. Thus it is that the Hamas victory in Gaza has left the "international community" flummoxed. Once again, the inevitable arrived to everyone's surprise. For weeks, the area had been awash in a stream of visiting foreign ministers. Each...

    When Terrorists Rule: The Truth About Gaza OCT 14, 2019 9:00 AM BY RAMI DABBAS T Hamas is the armed wing of the Islamic Resistance Movement of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. When such groups and theocratic regimes reach power, this is terrorism. How the terrorist dictatorship Hamas controls Gaza with an iron fist has finally been exposed, revealing its ugly face and providing the clearest example of how repressive terrorist movements deal with their own people when they reach power. Hamas has recently arrested hundreds of protesters suffering from poor economic conditions and lack of services, and hundreds of...

    Caroline Glick ^ | October 11, 2019 | Caroline Glick
    The near consensus view of President Donald Trump’s decision to remove US special forces from the Syrian border with Turkey is that Trump is enabling a Turkish invasion and double crossing the Syrian Kurds who have fought with the Americans for five years against ISIS. Trump’s move, the thinking goes, harms US credibility and undermines US power in the region and throughout the world. There are several problems with this narrative. The first is that it assumes that until this week, the US had power and influence in Syria when in fact, by design, the US went to great lengths...

    Melania and I wish all Jewish people a blessed Yom Kippur. Known as the “Sabbath of Sabbaths,” Yom Kippur is the holiest of days in the Jewish faith and the culmination of the High Holy Days. Through teshuva, tefilla, and tzedakah, Jews on Yom Kippur reach toward God to reunite and seek spiritual closeness to our Creator. As the day’s services conclude, the final great blast of the shofar signals the end of the Day of Atonement and a strengthening and renewal of the spiritual bond with God. On this day, as Jews around the world stand in front of...

    WikiLeaks has released an email exchange between employees of Stratfor, the US-based global intelligence company, which reveals Israel and Russia made a deal to swap access codes for defense and surveillance equipment. According to the leaked document, Israel gave Russia the "data link codes" for unmanned aerial vehicles that the Jewish state sold to Georgia, and in return, Russia gave Israel the codes for Tor-M1 missile defense systems that Russia sold Iran. In a document by a Stratfor employee dated February 2009 she says that she had met with a "Mexican source/friend" who told her that Israel and Russia had...

    Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh says China's national petroleum company has pulled out of a $5 billion deal to help develop Iran's giant South Pars natural gas field in the Persian Gulf. The development, announced by Zanganeh on the ministry's SHANA website, comes amid economic pressure on both Iran and China from the United States. It also follows a series of military confrontations in the area between Iran and the naval forces of Britain and the United States. The China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) became the dominant investor in plans for the expansion of South Pars, the world’s largest gas...

FRANCE 24's correspondent Simona Foltyn has the details. More than 3,000 people have also been injured since the protests against chronic unemployment, poor public services and widespread corruption erupted in the capital on Tuesday, Iraqi officials said.

    Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who sought the Democratic presidential nomination in the 2016 election but lost out to Hillary Clinton, on Monday criticized Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his policies. "As someone who believes absolutely and unequivocally in Israel's right to exist... we must say loudly and clearly, that to oppose the reactionary policies of Prime Minister Netanyahu does not make us anti-Israel," Sanders told the annual conference of the J Street organization. He took issue with Israel’s response to the recent riots along the border with Gaza, claiming Israel "massively overreacted" to the protests. "The presence of Hamas members...
