  • PM Netanyahu just ROCKED the world in 2-minute speech!

    Are Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria an obstacle to peace? Are the millions of Arabs living inside Israel obstacles to peace? Prime Minister Netanyahu makes it clear that ethnic cleansing and judenrein are terms that will no longer be a part of the future of the Land of Israel. Ethnic cleansing for peace – what the Arab side proposes – is nothing more than blatant hatred of Jews and Israel.

    ..... 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...

    Denmark’s prime minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen reportedly received a rebuke from Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu over Danish support for Palestinian organizations. The two prime ministers spoke over the telephone Wednesday, reports newspaper Berlingske, citing anonymous Danish and Israeli sources.Netanyahu wished to express his displeasure at Danish state support for a number of Palestinian organizations, according to the report. Neither Denmark nor Israel has officially confirmed that the conversation took place. Last week, Netanyahu asked Danish foreign minister Anders Samuelsen to scrap Denmark’s support for Palestinian organizations during an official visit by the latter to Jerusalem. After that meeting, Samuelsen signed...

    As we are writing this column, President Trump just left Rome, after what can be considered a highly successful visit to Saudi Arabia and the Holy Land, as even The New York Times had to acknowledge. The purposeful contrast in his remarkable speech to over 50 heads of states from Muslim majority nations in the Saudi capital of Riyadh from President Obama’s June 4, 2009 Cairo speech, was evident, and confirmed the historical importance of Trump’s election for U.S. foreign policy and America’s standing in the world. Hilary Clinton, most definitely, would not have given this speech! Rereading Obama’s 2009...

    Although Abbas has yet to publicly responded to Trump’s demand that financing of terrorism stop, I believe Trump will force him to do so Secretary Tillerson said yesterday that Trump put enormous pressure on Abbas and Netanyahu. So where is Trump going? For the answer, look at the concessions he got from them. Abbas agreed that Israel could keep Maaleh Adumin, Ariel and Gush Etzion. The Israel Cabinet agreed to allow some Arab building in area C and to not demolish illegal Arab construction. The Gulf states said they would normalize with Israel if Israel froze construction outside of the...

    Abbas will end up in the diplomatic wilderness if he ignores the messages delivered by both Trump and Netanyahu The horrific carnage perpetrated in Manchester on 22 May presented an emotion-charged backdrop to two meetings the next day between President Trump and President Abbas in Bethlehem and President Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu in Jerusalem. Trump pointedly told Abbas: “Peace can never take root in an environment where violence is tolerated, funded and even rewarded. We must be resolute in condemning such acts in a single, unified voice. Peace is a choice we must make each day—and the United States...

The media hate us but the people love us,” Netanyahu told the first lady in a recording that picked up their private conversation. “Like you.”

    A silence fell on Arab media outlets after publication of a report about the Gulf States’ plan for partial normalization with Israel. No official response by Saudi Arabia, the Gulf States or Qatar was heard. The regular pundits preferred to deal with other matters, as if they had neither heard nor seen the scoop in the Wall Street Journal. The usual government spokespeople in Israel were also apparently struck by a condition affecting the vocal chords. When similar reports emerged in the past, official spokesmen, Arab and Israeli alike, would quickly issue a denial. But this time there were no...

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu borrowed a line from President Trump on Sunday, referring to CNN, the New York Times and other outlets as “fake news.” Netanyahu was upset with reporting by the two news groups about a new political document from the Palestinian group Hamas. “Ever wonder what fake news is?” Netanyahu asked in a social media posting. “Last week, headlines in CNN, Al Jazeera and The Guardian said Hamas now accepts a Palestinian state along the 1967 lines. The New York Times headline called this ‘moderation.’” “The intimation is that Hamas now accepts the State of Israel,” Netanyahu...

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday symbolically tossed into a bin a Hamas policy paper published last week that set out an apparent softening of the Palestinian Islamist group's stance toward Israel. In a document issued last Monday, Hamas said it was dropping its longstanding call for Israel's destruction, but said it still rejected the Jewish state's right to exist and continued to back "armed struggle" against it. The Israeli government has said the document aimed to deceive the world that Hamas was becoming more moderate. Netanyahu, in a 97-second video clip aired on social media on Sunday, said...

Rosenthal said this after attorney Liat Ben-Ari, the attorney accompanying Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's interrogation, spoke about the question of gifts and said that "when it comes to hundreds of thousands of shekels given to a public servant, I find it hard to accept that this is only a gift from a friend to a friend." The prime minister's office said in response: "There is no basis...

I would also like to say that this systematic harassment has a price.

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he is willing to make peace with the Palestinians if they can "pass the test of peace," during a Fox News interview Friday evening. "I think the first test of peace is to say to them, 'Hey, you want peace? Prove it. Confront terrorism, stop rewarding terrorism, stop paying it terrorists,'" Netanyahu told host Sean Hannity during their sit-down interview in Israel. Netanyahu said the Palestinian Authority pays terrorists and the families of terrorists who murder Israelis and Americans "hundreds of millions of dollars." "It could be more than a billion dollars that are...

    Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, has deep business and personal ties to Israel that could raise questions about his ability to serve as an honest broker as he oversees the White House’s Mideast peace efforts. But some say these ties, which include a previously undisclosed real estate deal in New Jersey with a major Israeli insurer, may give Kushner a surprising advantage as he is expected to launch the first peace talks of the Trump era. Having the trust of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the thinking goes, could make Kushner well positioned to extract concessions...
