    American B-52s, the massive strategic bombers, arrived in the Middle East on Saturday. They are part of the Fifth Bomb Wing at Minot AFB in North Dakota. These veteran, giant aircraft were last deployed in the region in May 2019 and the US Central Command says they are here to “deter aggression and reassure US partners and allies.” The B-52s have been sent to the region as the US appears to be drawing down forces in Iraq. The Pentagon has said that hundreds of troops are leaving Iraq and Afghanistan. As the US seeks to end twenty years of involvement...

    Worst apartheid regime ever. Will this gesture of good will stop the “Palestinians” from disseminating genocidal rhetoric and glorifying those who murder Israeli civilians? Of course not. The jihad imperative continues regardless of what the kuffar do. “Israel to Procure, Transfer Millions of COVID-19 Vaccines to Palestinians,” i24 News, November 22, 2020: i24 News – A senior Palestinian Authority official claimed on Sunday that Israel has agreed to transfer millions of doses of COVID-19 vaccine to Ramallah in the coming months, according to Israeli daily Israel Hayom. Some three to four million coronavirus vaccines are expected to reach Palestinian medical...
  • Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu calls Joe Biden to congratulate him, leaving just Russia, Mexico and Brazil's leaders refusing to acknowledge election win

    President-elect Joe Biden spoke with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Tuesday, making him the latest world leader to acknowledge, after a slight delay, Biden's win in the 2020 presidential race. President Donald Trump, who's been politically aligned with Netanyahu during his four years in office, continues to refuse to concede to the Democratic ex-vice president. Netanyahu's office confirmed the call, according to Reuters, saying the two leaders had a 'warm conversation.' 'The two agreed to meet soon to discuss the many issues that are pending and reaffirmed the need to continue to strengthen the strong alliance between the United States...
  • Mitchell Demands End to Trump's ‘Anti-Iran,’ ‘Pro-Israel’ Foreign Policy

    On her MSNBC show on Wednesday, anchor Andrea Mitchell repeatedly whined over the Trump administration still conducting foreign policy after the election, as if that was unusual or improper. She was particularly outraged that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was traveling to the Middle East to push an “anti-Iran” and “pro-Israel” agenda. “Also, new sanctions against Iran today, again, making it harder for the president incoming to unwind the Iran nuclear deal because there’s a lot more that he’s gonna have to figure out with Iran to even get back to square one if he wants to reset relations with...

    If Donald Trump doesn’t take the Oath of Office on January 20, 2021, one principal but little-noted reason for this may be that he crossed one of the most powerful and least accountable forces in the nation: the military-industrial complex. As Trump said last September, “the top people in the Pentagon…want to do nothing but fight wars so that all of those wonderful companies that make the bombs and make the planes and make everything else stay happy. But we’re getting out of the endless wars, you know how we’re doing.” Now, however, that Joe Biden has been anointed “President-elect”...

    The U.S. military deployed B-52 bombers to the Middle East Saturday, just days after the Trump administration announced a partial withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan and Iraq. U.S. Central Command said the U.S. Air Force B-52H “Stratofortress” aircrews conducted the mission on "short notice" to "deter aggression and reassure U.S. partners and allies."“The ability to quickly move forces into, out of and around the theater to seize, retain and exploit the initiative is key to deterring potential aggression," said Lt. Gen. Greg Guillot, 9th Air Force commander."These missions help bomber aircrews gain familiarity with the region’s airspace and command,...

    International social and electronic media — and, by extension, our own media outlets — have gone to town regarding the successes achieved by Azerbaijanis on the Nagorno-Karabakh battlefield, employing armed ‘kamikaze’ Turkish unmanned aerial vehicles, such as the Bayraktar TB2 and Harpy/Harop and Orbiter 1K made by Israel Aircraft Industries. They are also known to have employed a Russian conventional aircraft’s converted-to-drone adaptation such as the AN-2, as also other Israeli drones, such as Hermes, Heron and Skystriker. The Bayraktar is known to be an American Predator/Reaper copy and the Turks have, statedly, used them extensively earlier in Syria and...

    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's visit to a West Bank settlement on Thursday is raising criticism that he used the trip to boost his own political profile amid speculation that he's eying a race for the presidency in 2024 after news leaked that his trip was being described as part of the "Pompeo Doctrine." Pompeo is the first U.S. secretary of state to visit both a settlement and the Golan Heights, reports CNN, and during his visit he touted the Trump administration's recognition of settlements as Israeli territory and its push to help Israeli businesses in the West Bank avoid...

    Exit polls indicate that President Trump received a record-number of Jewish votes this year with 30.5% nationally (up from 24% in 2016) and 43% in Florida helping him win that swing state by a healthy margin. But as a pro-Israel advocate who has spent many years fighting for policies that help Israel and Jews survive in a world in which they’re surrounded by hate, I am once again dismayed by American Jews who – only 75 years since the Holocaust – fail to heed the lessons of history. Seventy percent insanely (and inanely) obsess over abortion rights, climate change, gun...

    Karine Jean-Pierre, an anti-Israel radical who praised Democrats for shunning a pro-Israel conference last year, has emerged as a top contender to be Joe Biden’s White House press secretary, according to several news sources. NBC News’ Geoff Bennett cited “multiple sources” Wednesday as saying that Jean-Pierre, currently an aide to Biden’s running mate Kamala Harris, was the top candidate for the position. If Jean-Pierre is chosen, she would be the first woman of color to serve as press secretary.

    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday announced that the State Department will ban funding for any organization it determines participates in the global boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel, labeling such activity as anti-Semitic. The announcement was expected for several weeks and had earlier drawn pushback from civil and human rights groups that warned the effort politicized the fight against anti-Semitism and could delegitimize the work human rights organizations conduct around the world. The secretary made the announcement alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu while on travel in Jerusalem and said the State Department would work quickly...

    JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli media reported Monday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu flew to Saudi Arabia for a clandestine meeting with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, which would mark the first known encounter between senior Israeli and Saudi officials. The reported meeting was the latest move by the Trump Administration to promote normalized ties between Israel and the broader Arab world and reflected the shared concern of all three nations about Iran. The Israeli news site Walla, followed quickly by other Hebrew-language media, cited an unnamed Israeli official as saying that Netanyahu and Yossi Cohen, head of Israel’s Mossad spy...

    A Jewish American man jailed in 1985 for spying for Israel was released from strict parole conditions Friday, allowing his move to Israel, the US Justice Department said. Jonathan Pollard, a former Navy intelligence analyst, served 30 years for giving classified US documents and had been confined by parole terms to the United States since his release in 2015, despite Israeli pressure to allow him to leave. US officials said Pollard, over a series of months and for a salary, provided 1,500 intelligence summaries and 800 classified documents to Israel in the mid-80s.

    After Azerbaijani forces retook Shusha, the cultural capital of the Azerbaijani people and a peace agreement was signed that was favorable to Azerbaijan, Azerbaijanis, both in Azerbaijan and the Diaspora, have been waving Israeli flags at every available opportunity, as a token of appreciation for both Israeli humanitarian assistance and the weapons that Israel sold them, which tipped the strategic balance in their favor. No other Muslim nation except for the Kurds has ever waved the Israeli flag across the streets of their nation. This right here demonstrates how much Israeli-Azerbaijani relations are blossoming. As Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu...

    How the Arab world masks its centuries-old blood libel against Jews. Jews have been accused of harming and murdering non-Jews since the twelfth century in England, when Jewish convert to Catholicism, Theobald of Cambridge, mendaciously announced that European Jews ritually slaughtered Christian children each year and drank their blood during Passover season. That medieval blood libel, largely abandoned in the contemporary West, does, however, still appear as part of Arab world’s vilification of Jews—now transmogrified into a slander against Israel, the Jew of nations. But in the regular chorus of defamation against Israel by a world infected with Palestinianism, a...

    Russia plans to establish a military base on Sudan’s Red Sea coast to serve as a logistics center for the Russian navy, according to a draft agreement between Moscow and Khartoum signed by Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin and released publicly Nov. 11. The agreement states that Sudan will provide a land plot for the Russian base free of charge for a period of 25 years. It will automatically renew for subsequent 10-year periods. To terminate the deal, one of the parties must notify the other party of its intention at least one year before the expiration of the next...
