    The State of Israel is "on the brink of civil war" between Jews and Arabs, warned Acre Mayor Shimon Lankri during an emergency conference of the Forum for Security, Governance and Settlement on Sunday. "A moment before we fall into a civil war, and I say this really after I was a witness to all the events of the May [2021, Operation Guardian of the Walls], the endpoint of the events of May will be the opening mark for the coming events," said Lankri. "Whoever hasn't understood it yet, we are on the brink of civil war in the State...

    Antisemitism in Acre is reminiscent of darker times - opinion These disturbing scenes are reminiscent of darker times in Jewish history, when we were powerless at the hands of our non-Jewish neighbors. Yair Kraus, May 13, 2022 May 11, 2021, was a watershed for Jewish-Arab relations in Israel, especially in my hometown of Acre. On that day, hundreds of Arab residents took to the streets, motivated by their hatred of Jews. They sought to murder, burn and destroy. These scenes were repeated in mixed cities throughout the country, such as Ramle and Lod. Living in Acre, I honestly feared for...

    The following is a very small number of indictments on racial grounds, out of so many attacks by Arabs on Jews. In Lod alone there were over 650 violent attacks on Jews reported by May 27, 2021.

    BESA Center Perspectives Paper No. 2,027, May 13, 2021 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: The explosion of mass violence by Israeli Arabs against their fellow Jewish citizens is nothing short of a religious war and has to be treated as such. When synagogues and religious seminaries are torched, it is a religious war. When Torah scrolls are desecrated, it is a religious war. When cars are torched only after verification that they belong to Jews, it is a religious war. When Jewish drivers and passengers are dragged from their cars to the shouts of “Allah Akbar” and beaten up, it is a religious...

    Israeli Arabs continue to cause mayhem in Arab-Jewish towns, though in Lod itself the Border Police have helped to bring some semblance, not of calm, for there can no longer be calm after what the marauding Arab mobs did to the homes, shops, synagogues of their Jewish neighbors — but order.

    In 1187, Saladin managed to defeat the Crusader states and reconquer Jerusalem, prompting Richard to initiate another military campaign to regain Christian control over the Holy Land. After Acre surrendered to him, the king started to descend along Israel's coast with his forces. "Ultimately, Richard and the Crusaders wanted to reconquer Jerusalem, but first the monarch decided to march south to capture Jaffa," the archaeologist explained. The march along the shore allowed the troops to be protected by the Mediterranean Sea on their right side and to receive the logistical support of their fleet. Lewis pointed out that Richard proved...
  • BREAKING: Car-Ramming Terrorist Attack in Acre Leaves Four Injured

    Earlier this morning, an Arab-Israeli driver ran over and lightly-to-moderately wounded two soldiers, a border policeman and a pedestrian in the northern Israeli city of Acre, Israeli police said.

    WASHINGTON (AFP) – The White House Saturday sought to rally support for the contentious deal brokered by President Barack Obama at UN climate talks by listing prominent Americans who back the plan against global warming, though opponents also spoke up. A statement released by the White House included quotes from environmentalists, captains of industry and leading elected officials from Obama's Democratic Party praising the "breakthrough" that will "lay the foundation for international action in the years to come." Michael Eckhart, head of the American Council on Renewable Energy, applauded Obama's "wisdom in achieving an agreement on the aspirational goal, limiting...

    The Arab pogrom in Acre on Yom Kippur was yet another wake-up call. The 200 Israeli Arabs who shattered the windshields of 110 Jewish cars, and burned and looted dozens of Jewish businesses in the city on the eve of Yom Kippur while shouting out, "Death to Jews!" "Allah Akbar!" and "We'll kill you if you leave your homes!" couldn't have made their point any more clearly. They don't like Jews. They don't want peaceful coexistence with Israel. They don't recognize the authority of Israel's laws. They don't accept their identity as Israeli citizens. If the actual violence wasn't enough...
