    NY Post ^ | Miranda Devine
    Gal Luft, the “missing” witness in the House Oversight Committee’s Biden family corruption investigation, has told The Post he is alive and living as a fugitive in an undisclosed location. The former Israeli Defense Force colonel vanished from Cyprus last month while on bail awaiting extradition to the US on seven charges. He denies the allegations, which include five charges relating to the Arms Export Control Act of conspiring to sell Chinese products to the United Arab Emirates, Kenya and Libya, as well as a violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, and of making a false statement. Luft claims...

    War with Iran is increasingly probable, and therefore Jerusalem needs to prepare to attack the Islamic Republic even without U.S. support, the former head of Israel’s National Security Council warned on Thursday. “War is much closer than peace, and Iran is more self-confident after forging [detente] agreements with Arab countries. The world is changing and the probability of circumstances deteriorating is greater than ever,” Yaakov Amidror said in an interview with Radio 103 FM. “America is no longer the same America it once was, and the Iranians have noticed this. The United States has more complex issues to deal with...

    Tensions are running high at the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the flashpoint Temple Mount site, Islam’s third-holiest site, where thousands of Muslim worshippers are gathering for Friday prayers during the holy month of Ramadan, following a long night of Israeli airstrikes in the Gaza Strip and a rare strike in Lebanon overnight. According to reports in the Hebrew media, Palestinian worshippers at the site were calling to support the “resistance,” a reference to terror group Hamas, which rules Gaza.

    The Arabic-speaking (though ethnically Aramean) Christian community in Israel celebrated on Monday the promotion to the rank of Major of one of its own in the Israel Defense Forces. More and more local Christians have been volunteering for the IDF in recent years as groups like the Israel Christian Community (ICCI) encourage military service as the best way to integrate into the Jewish state. In a Facebook post marking the promotion of Maj. Eddie Jamalia, the ICCI told “everyone who tried (and is trying) to prevent our integration into Israeli society, in the IDF and the security forces (in particular),...

    As Israel approaches a turning point in its journey from internal strife to ultimate, divinely-ordained destiny. Much of the news here in Israel and beyond is bad. Yet the outlook still looks good. What!? Well, according to these three Israeli indicators (IDF, economy and prophecy), the prognosis for Israel is actually quite good. 1. Reliable Prophecies On the one hand we see unceasing threats against Israel – militarily and otherwise. On the other hand we see repeated miraculous protection in war after war; and in the meta picture, Jeremiah prophesied that no matter what, God would not allow Israel to...

    Now The End Begins ^ | 11/28/22 | Geoffrey Grider
    The Israel Air Force this week will hold one of its largest drills in years with the United States Air Force simulating offensive strikes against Iran’s nuclear program. This is the mission that no one really wants to have to carry out, an actual long-range strike on Iran’s nuclear program and facilities built for them by Russia over the last decade and an half. But at some point, either Israel and perhaps America are going to go after Iran, or Iran is actually going to build a nuclear weapon or weapons with which to fire against Israel. Either way, and...

    The Syrian military and Iranian militia groups in the country have rolled out new, advanced air defense systems near Damascus, aimed at stopping Israeli air strikes in the area. According to a report from the Jerusalem Post, which cited the Syrian Capital Voice outlet, Damascus and Tehran have obtained more sophisticated air defense systems from Korean and Chinese manufacturers. Iran is believed to have paid for the air defense systems as part of a partnership with Syria, whose embattled leader, Bashar al-Assad, has given his tacit approval to Iranian assets operating throughout his country.

    Two Palestinian Arab terrorists were eliminated early Monday morning during a failed terror attack on IDF soldiers in Samaria. The incident occurred in the Jazalone refugee camp outside of Ramallah, when three terrorists driving in a car attempted to run down Israeli security personnel. Soldiers from the IDF’s elite commando unit “Egoz” opened fire on the terrorists as they approached, killing two and wounding one. No injuries were reported among the Israeli forces. The foiled attack is the third terror attack in Samaria in the past twenty-four hours. .....

    Forty-nine percent of all Israelis, and 55% of those who are Jewish, strongly or somewhat agree that Israel should attack Iranian nuclear sites even without U.S. support, according to a survey by the Israel Democracy Institute. The study also found that less than a third of Jewish Israelis (31%) want the next government in Jerusalem to advance the two-state solution as a means of resolving the conflict with the Palestinians. A full 36% of Israelis, including 58% of Jews, do not want this paradigm to be promoted following the Jewish state’s Nov. 1 elections (11% of Jewish Israelis said they...

    The United States will not be able to stop Israel from retaliating against Lebanon if Hezbollah decides to attack it over the Karish gas field, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken reportedly told the Lebanese prime minister in a recent meeting. According to Saudi media reports, Blinken told Prime Minister Najib Mikati that even if Hezbollah only demonstrates a small show of force, Washington will not be able to stop Israel. Earlier this month, the Lebanese Al-Akhbar newspaper claimed that Washington had increased its pressure on Israel to finalize a maritime deal following intelligence according to which Hezbollah has c

    Israel predicted increased defense exports to Japan on Tuesday as the Asian economic powerhouse signals intent to boost military spending amid more assertive Chinese conduct in the region. Tokyo has been reviewing post-World War Two caps on its armed forces budget amid growing concern Russia's invasion of Ukraine will embolden China to threaten neighboring self-ruled Taiwan, an island it claims as its own. Japan's ruling Liberal Democratic Party wants to double defense spending to 2% of GDP, which would make Japan's military budget the world's third-biggest. Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz noted the shift in Japanese policy as he wrapped...

    Something has changed in the Mossad. And that something means the impending Iran nuclear deal will not likely end Israeli covert operations against Tehran. If at some point in the past, it was content to take orders from prime ministers and be included around the table next to the juggernaut IDF, the spy agency is now taking center stage more often and helping to shape policymakers’ views much more deeply. There was a brief moment when Yossi Cohen stepped down in June 2021 and was replaced by David Barnea, who would supposedly lower the clandestine agency’s profile, when some predicted...

Both Iranian and Russian radars failed to locate them, according to the report.

    The New York Times reporter Fady Hanona is just one of hundreds of Jew-haters associated with the American media. The Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi was one of the bitterest critics of Jews and Israel and a defender of Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda. Still, in the eyes of Wash Post and majority of the US media – he is a “hero”. Similarly, NYT found a perfect reporter as Fady Hanona to fill pages of this newspaper with Jew hatred. And most painful fact is – Fady Hanona would continue working for The New York Times unless his nefarious writings...
  • Report: US asked Israel to review IDF's rules of engagement

    The Biden administration wants Israel to review its “rules of engagement” during military operations in Judea and Samaria after the killing of Palestinian American journalist Shireen Abu Aqleh, three Israeli and US sources briefed on the call told Barak Ravid of Axios on Wednesday. US pressure for Israel to review the guidelines is unusual, but comes as the Biden administration faces pressure to do more to ensure accountability in Abu Aqleh's death. The rules of engagement define the circumstances under which Israeli soldiers can use live fire. Abu Aqleh, an American-Palestinian Arab, was shot dead on May 11 while covering...
