    Israel's new national security minister earlier visited the Jerusalem holy site, drawing condemnation The United Nations Security Council will hold an emergency session to discuss the recent visit by Israel's National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir to Jerusalem’s Temple Mount, which sparked international backlash, a report said Tuesday. An unnamed senior diplomat told The Times of Israel that a date has not yet been set, but the meeting could take place as early as Thursday. Earlier on Tuesday, the United Arab Emirates and China asked the UN Security Council to meet shortly after Ben-Gvir's controversial visit, according to diplomats. The Temple...
  • The truth about the Yom Kippur war, Nixon and Kissinger

    This month marks the 43rd anniversary of the Yom Kippur War. We have been fed some false information about this war. For starters, Israel did not strike first unlike in the 1967 Six day war when Israel was forced to launch a pre-emptive strike as her enemies amassed on her borders and as the UN stood aside and allowed them to do so. The Arabs shot first  On the night of September 25, King Hussein secretly flew to Tel Aviv to warn Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir of an impending Syrian attack. Throughout September, Israel received eleven more warnings...

    Obama and Clinton's shameful betrayal of Israel in this sordid affair seems set to be targeted by Trump. Donald Trump’s foreign policy speech has created expectations that he will match Marco Rubio’s pledge to stand by the commitments made by President Bush to Israel’s Prime Minister Ariel Sharon in Bush’s letter dated 14 April 2004. Rubio made his unequivocal pledge on 3 December 2015 at the Republican Jewish Coalition Presidential Forum during his unsuccessful race to secure the Republican Party’s endorsement as its Presidential nominee:

    Jerusalem (CNN)Former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has been sentenced to eight months in prison for taking cash from an American businessman. He was also fined $25,700.

The new sentence is in addition to the six years in prison Olmert is already facing for taking bribes related to a controversial Jerusalem housing project -- also while he was mayor. Olmert was...

    "What do you want from my life," groused L., a top journalist with France 2 Television, during a meeting with French-speaking Israelis who visited its main studio last year. The morning of the visit, the French newspaper Liberacion published a Jewish Agency prediction of large-scale immigration of French Jews to Israel. The journalist had trouble keeping his composure. His parents immigrated to France from Algeria in the early 1960s, soon after its independence. Algerian Jews who had French citizenship immigrated to France and settled without much problem. L. is a case in point. As a leading correspondent for France 2,...

    Against the backdrop of continuing hate crimes against French Jewry, France's Broadcasting Authority had banned Hezbollah's Al-Manar viciously antisemitic and anti-Israel TV (see right and below) for violating French anti-incitement laws. Earlier this week, French Broadcasting Authority announced that it had reversed its ban thereby giving Al-Manar the license to continue broadcasting into France and elsewhere in Europe via French satellite television after the Beirut-based mouthpiece of the terrorist Hizbollah organization allegedly agreed not to broadcast any hate programming.

    Many French citizens have traveled in Israel as part of their annual holiday, but this week a few hundred of them landed at Ben Gurion Airport—forever. Three flights arrived from Paris and another one made its way from Marseilles. On the aircraft were new immigrants who said they were fulfilling a dream. “I feel I’ve arrived home; making aliyah is a dream come true,” said Sabrina Kozirov, 40, who came from France with her husband and two teenage daughters. … Kozirov said, “The situation in France had become unbearable. There is a large Muslim community and harsh political criticism of...

Their assailants weren’t Arabs, Germans, Poles or members of another group historically associated with anti-Semitism, but Frenchmen – the children of liberty, equality and fraternity.The incident was part of a growing trend. Despite the protestations of President Jacques Chirac, European anti-Semitism has a French address.The Jews – students from the U.S., Israel and Poland – were touring the museum at the death camp that’s come to symbolize the horrors of the Holocaust. One of them, Tamar Schuri, had an Israeli...

    Jerusalem - The Jewish Agency is bracing itself for the immigration of tens of thousands French Jews into Israel as a result of a growing anti-Semitism in France, a spokesperson for the organisation said on Sunday. Senior government officials including Immigration Absorption Minister Tzippi Livni, cabinet director Ilan Cohen and the president of the quasi-governmental Jewish Agency, Sallai Meridor, met last week "to work out how to come to the help of potential Jewish immigrants from France", Yaden Vatikai told AFP. Vatikai said that a report compiled by the agency had found 30 000 out of France's 575 000-strong Jewish...

    About three months ago, the French Jewish (it is unfortunately important to mention her religion) singer Shirel was performing at a gala attended by, among others, France’s First Lady Mrs. Bernadette Chirac. Upon entering the stage and during her song, Shirel was welcomed by young Muslims sitting in the first rows yelling, “Dirty Jew. Death to the Jews. We’ll kill you.” If this were not disgusting enough, the loud silence of Mrs Chirac speaks volumes about the condition of French Jews today. It is not then surprising that recent Court decisions confirm this increasing trend of official hostility to Jews....

These unnamed Israeli and Russian “extremists” seek to kill Chirac for his “far too pro-Arab” stance, as the weekly alleges, quoting anonymous police officers and state attorneys.

    PARIS — Americans were busy electing the leader of the free world this week, but French Jews had a different foreign dignitary on their minds: Yasser Arafat. The Palestinian leader arrived in France last week, after President Jacques Chirac eagerly accepted Arafat's request for access to medical treatment. Chirac proudly framed the decision as an example of French humanitarianism, but local Jews were more cynical in their take on the situation. "This is another example of France sucking up to the Arab world," said Sonia Fellous, an expert on Hebrew manuscripts at the prestigious state-funded CNRS research center in Paris....

    PARIS, Feb 15 (AFP) - The assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafiq Hariri was a deliberate blow to France, whose president Jacques Chirac was a personal friend and has sponsored UN moves to end the Syrian occupation, Paris-based commentators said Tuesday. While the French government refused to point a finger of blame -- adhering publicly to Chirac's call for an international investigation into the murder -- analysts and Middle East specialists were less circumspect about who they thought was behind it. "I have not the shadow of a doubt that Syria is responsible," said Antoine Basbous, president of the...

    BEHIND THE HEADLINES In shadow of anti-Semitic attack, French Jews meet to discuss future By Philip Carmel PARIS, June 1 (JTA) — A little more than 100 yards from where French Jews had gathered to debate the community’s future lay the latest reminder of just how precarious that future is. Participants entering the main synagogue in Creteil, a southern Paris suburb with a large Jewish population, were greeted with news that has become all too familiar since the Palestinian intifada began in September 2000. At around 10 o’clock the previous night, a large Jewish grocery store literally a stone’s throw...

And of course, CNN, in its European edition, is leading the “rah rah” anti-Americanism. Hundreds of thousands in Sydney. A million in New York City. In Rome. In Great Britain. And anyway, CNN tells us, the scars from the Twin Towers are already “ beginning to heal.” Oh, really? And I wonder, where were all of these...

    French President Jacques Chirac rejected Monday Israel's request to add Hezbollah to the European Union's list of terror organizations. Chirac told Foreign Minister Shimon Peres that the Hezbollah had a political-social branch that fulfills a "social mission in Lebanon." Chirac said that it is not clear whether denouncing the organization will benefit Israel, because such a denouncement would strengthen Hezbollah and weaken the central government in Beirut. During his meeting with Peres, the president raised the "anti-France campaign" he says is being held in the United States, presenting France as an anti-Semitic country. Peres said that there has been a...

    France is to hold a top-level meeting on fighting anti-Semitism following the firebombing of a Jewish boys' school. President Jacques Chirac will meet Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin and three of his top ministers on Monday before receiving Jewish leaders. Nobody was injured in the fire at the Merkaz Hatorah school in Gagny, north of Paris, early on Saturday. Attacks have been linked to Muslim youths angry about Israel's tough policies against Palestinian unrest. Highly vigilant "The French republic cannot tolerate any anti-Semitic act," Mr Chirac said in a statement. "More than anywhere else, school must be a place of tolerance...
