    The State Department confirmed the sale in September The United States sold the ambassador’s residence in Israel for more than $67 million in July, according to an official Israeli record of the sale that shines new light on a transaction that has been shrouded in secrecy. The State Department confirmed the sale in September but refused to identify the buyer or disclose the sale price of the sprawling beachfront compound in the upscale Tel Aviv suburb of Herzliya. On Tuesday, it said the sale had been "open and transparent." The Israeli business newspaper Globes has identified the buyer as the...

    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,...

    The Soviet UN vote helped Israel for a moment in time. That was all.Andrei Gromyko, Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin’s representative at the United Nations, stunned the world on November 29, 1947, during the debate on the partition of Palestine into an Arab state and a Jewish state. “The Jewish people had been closely linked with Palestine for a considerable period of history,” Gromyko told the UN General Assembly. “As a result of the war, the Jews as a people have suffered more than any other people. The total number of the Jewish population who perished at the hands of the...

    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...

    In what could be a landmark in the Middle East’s history, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu flew to Saudi Arabia on Sunday to meet the country’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Israeli media reported. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, currently on a tour of the region, was also reportedly present at the meeting in Neom, Saudi Arabia. Netanyahu was accompanied by the head of Israeli intelligence agency Mossad, Yossi Cohen, who is widely regarded to have played a key role in preparing the groundwork for the recent normalization of diplomatic relations between Israel and the Arab Gulf states, news...

    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...

    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...

Today we would like to introduce you to anti-Israel Progressive radical Karine Jean-Pierre, currently the chief of staff for Kamala Harris, and the likely press secretary for the administration should Joe Biden be successful.

    Every time a cell inside your body replicates, a slither of your youth crumbles to dust. This occurs via the shortening of telomeres, structures that 'cap' the tips of our chromosomes. Now, scientists in Israel say they've been able to reverse this process and extend the length of telomeres in a small study involving 26 patients. The participants sat in a hyperbaric oxygen chamber for five 90 minutes sessions per week over three months, and as a result, some of their cell's telomeres were extended by up to 20 percent. It's an impressive claim - and something many other researchers...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour apologized on air after comparing President Trump’s four years in office to the Nazis’ Kristallnacht purge of the Jewish people in 1938. She made the ill-advised comparison last week during a segment on her CNN International show commemorating the 82nd anniversary of the pogrom. “This week 82 years ago, Kristallnacht happened,” Amanpour opened the segment. “It was the Nazis’ warning shot across the bow of our human civilization that led to genocide against a whole identity.” ... “After four years of a modern-day assault on those same values by Donald Trump, the Biden/Harris team pledges a...

    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.
