He decided specifically to come to the Tel Aviv hospital for treatment, where other family members of Abbas have been treated in the past. …

    While the US State Department’s refusal to recognize Jerusalem as being part of the State of Israel is well-known and was even the subject of a US Supreme Court case, it seems that the official US visa information and appointment services website has erased Israel completely. […] Curiously, while the website lists dozens of nations around the world, including rogue states like Iran, with their flags, there is no mention of Israel or the Israeli flag. Instead, two separate listings are made under the Middle East section: one for Jerusalem and one for Tel Aviv. Israel is, in fact, the...

    The official U.S. Visa Service for foreign citizens website, to help them travel to the United States, is surprisingly not part of a government Internet domain. Apparently this service has been outsourced by the US government to another firm, possible Computer Sciences Corporation. It really is the official US visa site, though, and a number of US embassy and consulate webpages point there. This one says explicitly that it is "the ONLY authorized website for the payment of visa fees." The reason this is interesting is the page from this official visa site that offers individuals to choose which country...

    Israelis who posted Facebook statuses in Tel Aviv during the weekend were surprised to find that according to Facebook, they were not in Tel Aviv - but rather in "Al Mas'Udiya." The name refers to a town abandoned by Arab residents during the 1948 War of Independence, when the surrounding Arab nations tried and failed to destroy the nascent modern Jewish state. The location of the village, which has not existed for around 68 years, currently would be between the streets of Ibn Gabirol and Arlozorov in Tel Aviv, right near Hameah Tower.

According to the report, Amsterdam Mayor Eberhard van der Laan withdrew the plan due to pressure from the left-wing green party GroenLinks, the Labour party and the Socialists, who said they would not support the twinning program. The mayor was also under pressure from a number of other pro-Palestinian Arab organizations, which claimed the move is inappropriate because of Israel’s “occupation” of Judea and Samaria. …

It is not clear what the man is saying but he is obviously terrorized, and possibly suffering from mental problems. The infiltrator barks at him, in Hebrew, to sit, then proceeds to beat him with a plank. Residents of southern Tel Aviv have complained for years that the infiltrator population has made...

    JNS.org – In various cultures, a particular month, day or time is associated with a certain annual activity. For example, here in the United States, November—every other year—is election time. In Israel, every May brings the solemnity of remembering fallen soldiers, followed immediately by celebrations of national independence. And if it’s March and you happen to live in Palestinian Authority (PA)-controlled territory, then you know it’s time for publicly praising and honoring one of the most gruesome Palestinian massacres of Israelis and Americans in modern history. That’s because March 9, 1978, was the day that a squad of 13 Palestinian...
