    After a Jewish family that moved to Ramla was attacked by their Arab neighbors, who wreaked havoc on their home, the court forbade the neighbors to contact the family members, point cameras at their home, and approach the home's grounds. Also, the common yard was temporarily divided by a fence. ... Last August, members of the Jewish family moved into an apartment in the city of Ramla. The ones who decided to receive them in an unpleasant way are the Arab neighbors, when since moving the Jews received statements like "Let's catch this religious woman", "Let Hitler burn you", "And...

    As Barack Obama’s number two man, Joe Biden took part in many policies that were damaging to Israel but his duplicity concerning the Jewish state began in his first year in the Senate when he visited Israel. Depending on which version of events he tells, Biden takes credit for transmitting disinformation to the Israeli government in an effort to help Egypt kill more Jewish soldiers, or, as he now tells it, Biden withheld vital information that could have helped Israel defend itself. In 1973, a freshman senator named Joe Biden was sent on his first overseas trip to visit Israel....

    New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, known for his close ties to US President Joe Biden, published an op-ed on Saturday following Biden’s meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in New York this past week. Friedman asserted that, while appearing friendly toward Netanyahu, the President had "privately slip[ped] a homework assignment into Bibi's pocket." This assignment, according to Friedman, was for Netanyahu to decide whether to dismantle his coalition, or miss out on the chance to achieve normalization with Saudi Arabia. “It was a master class in how a US president puts a fateful decision to an Israeli leader —...

    Nabil Abu Rudeineh, the spokesman for the Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas, slammed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech at the United Nations (UN) General Assembly, promising that there will be no peace or stability until the "Palestinian nation's" demands are met. In his speech, Netanyahu said, "Many decades of efforts to make peace with Arab Nations have failed because they were based on one false assumption - that the Palestinians must be appeased as a precondition to peace. The Palestinians have much to gain from new peace agreements. They should be part of these agreements, but they should not...

    Rabbi Yigal Levenstein, one of the heads of a military preparatory academy in the town of Eli in Samaria, required police protection after he was attacked and chased in Tel Aviv by irate protesters on Tuesday night. In footage of the harassment, protesters shout, “You are nothing, you have no God. You are scum. You are not Jews. Get out of here.” Others yell, “Go away, fascist. Go back to the settlements. You don’t belong in this place.” The protesters numbered about 300, according to reports. They targeted Levenstein for opposing the integration of women in the military and for...

    Israel's ambassador to the United Nations was briefly detained by security on Tuesday for protesting during the Iranian president's speech. Gilad Erdan held up a photo of Mahsa Amini, the 22-year-old Iranian woman who was killed while in the custody of Tehran's morality police after being arrested for not covering enough of her hair. Erdan walked silently towards the stage, holding the sign above his head. On it was written: 'Iranian women deserve freedom now!' Ebrahim Raisi, the president of Iran, did not appear to notice Erdan, who then left the chamber and was later held by UN security. Erdan...

    UNESCO has rewritten history in the Land of Israel before. It has declared the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism — which it refers to only by its Arabic name, Al-Haram Al-Sharif (the Noble Sanctuary) — as an exclusively Muslim holy site. And now Jericho is about to be given similar treatment by UNESCO, its significance in the history of the Jews ignored, while the fact that the city is now populated entirely by Palestinians will lead UNESCO to ignore thousands of years of its Jewish history and to describe it as an exclusively “Palestinian heritage site.” “Is UNESCO...

    Former President Donald Trump posted a message Sunday for Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, urging liberal Jews to repent for voting “to destroy America & Israel because you believed false narratives.”The message, which he posted on his Truth Social platform, included a post by JEXIT, a group of conservative Jews that urges fellow Jews to leave the Democratic Party.The JEXIT post was headed by a comment: “Wake Up Sheep. What Nazi / Anti Semite ever did this for the Jewish people or Israel?” It then listed several of Trump’s best-known accomplishments for Jews and for Israel — a list...

    Former US president Donald Trump attacked "liberal Jews who voted to destroy America and Israel" in a Rosh Hashanah greeting sent on his social media website Truth Social early on Monday morning. Trump, who beat US President Joe Biden in a new 2024 presidential election poll on Monday, published a list of his Israeli-related accomplishments during his tenure at the White House. Above the list, a caption reads "just a quick reminder for liberal Jews who voted to destroy America and Israel because you believed false narratives! "Let's hope you learned from your mistake and make better choices moving forward,"...

A senescent corruptocrat pretending to be president in order to further the interests of a sinister band of shadowy globalists? Well, yeah. But besides that, he is whoever you want him to be, or whatever he thinks you want him to be, if you have a vote to give him or you can further his political or financial ambitions. On Thursday, Biden declared that he was “raised in the synagogues.” Sure he was. Biden, who...
  • Probe reveals previously secret Israeli spyware that infects targets via ads

    Israeli software maker Insanet has reportedly developed a commercial product called Sherlock that can infect devices via online adverts to snoop on targets and collect data about them for the biz's clients. This is according to an investigation by Haaretz, which this week claimed the spyware system had been sold to a country that is not a democracy. The newspaper's report, we're told, marks the first time details of Insanet and its surveillanceware have been made public. Furthermore, Sherlock is capable of drilling its way into Microsoft Windows, Google Android, and Apple iOS devices, according to cited marketing bumf. "According...

    Peace and reconciliation between Israel and the Palestinians would require first and foremost a Palestinian leadership that acknowledges the historical connections between the Jewish people and the Land of Israel. Without acknowledging this basic historical fact, which the Bible established, and the 1920 San Remo International Conference confirmed, there is no basis for negotiating a true peace.It is not just the Islamist terrorist group Hamas that rejects Israel’s right to exist and seeks to destroy it with words and actions — it is the leader of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas. In his speech to the Fatah Revolutionary Council last...

    The Guardian ^ | 15th September 2023 | Lorenzo Tondo in Uman and Bethan McKernan in Jerusalem
    Unfazed by the bombs, undeterred by the warnings, and in the face of the raging conflict, more than 35,000 ultra-Orthodox Jews from across the world have journeyed to Uman, Ukraine, to celebrate Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year. “Going to celebrate in a war zone en masse is crazy,” said Azoulay Ruben, a 22-year-old trainee dentist from Paris. “But at the same time, it’s a beautiful thing.” Rosh Hashanah is a two-day holiday that falls in September or October, marking the beginning of the high holy days. In Israel, it is usually celebrated with family visits and food: traditionally, pomegranates...

    This week, the world will celebrate the three-year anniversary of President Donald J. Trump’s Abraham Accords. On September 15, 2020, President Trump ushered in a new era of peace and collaboration in the Middle East between Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain on the White House South Lawn.While intelligence community leaders said President Trump’s bold decision to keep his campaign promise and move the United States Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the eternal capital of Israel, would cause war in the Middle East, just the opposite happened.Not shockingly, many of these individuals said the same when the framework...

    Armenia on Monday launched a joint military exercise with the United States, a move that has angered the Caucasus nation's main ally, Russia. The “Eagle Partner” war games will run through Sept. 20 and involve 175 Armenian and 85 troops. They reflect Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan's efforts to forge closer ties with the United States and other Western allies amid the simmering tensions with neighboring Azerbaijan. Moscow has reacted with dismay. On Friday, the Russian Foreign Ministry summoned the Armenian ambassador to lodge a formal protest over the exercises and other moves by Armenia that it described as “unfriendly.”...

    The formal initiation of the Oslo process on the White House lawn on September 13, 1993, was supposed to herald an era of peace between Israel and the Palestinians. But that hope was based on Israeli delusions.The truth was readily evident. On the evening of the White House ceremony, Yasir Arafat broadcast a speech on Jordanian television assuring Palestinians that they should understand Oslo in terms of the Palestine National Council’s 1974 decision. This was a reference to the so-called “plan of phases,” according to which the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) would acquire whatever territory it could by negotiations, then...

    Organized Palestinian terror is back to haunt Israeli civilians. In fact, 2023 has been the most lethal year in terms of terror and casualties since 2005, the last year of the Second Intifada. While in the intervening years, terror was essentially committed by individual Palestinians whether by knifing, or car ramming, the current terror unleashed by Palestinian terrorists is organized. It includes a central command of terrorists affiliated with Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) and Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah. Most of the recent terror actions have taken place in Judea and Samaria. The Hamas leadership in Gaza is behind the organized...
