    A former official with the Democratic National Committee has worked in recent months with a convicted domestic terrorist-turned-activist known as the “Speedway Bomber” to gather information on Donald Trump, The Daily Caller has learned. That work culminated in a Washington, D.C. meeting in December between the ex-DNC operative, Alexandra Chalupa, the convicted bomber, Brett Kimberlin, and a South Africa-born Israeli man named Yoni Ariel. Ariel, whose real name is Jonathan Schwartz, traveled to Washington, D.C. to brief Chalupa and Kimberlin on his knowledge of Russia’s activities during the campaign. Chalupa, an activist of Ukrainian heritage who is strongly opposed to...

    It’s now public on Monday: Jarrett, who has homes in Washington and Chicago, is working with the Chicago-based Obama Foundation in an advisory capacity. The foundation now has a branch office up and running in Washington — in the same building where former President Barack Obama has his official government post-presidential office. Jarrett, I am told from one of her advisers, “will work with President Obama and the foundation leadership, including Chairman Martin Nesbitt and Chief Executive Officer David Simas, to help support the foundation team’s work as it develops the Obama Presidential Center in Jackson Park on the South...

    Our message is clear: We are planting here, we will stay here, we will build here, this place will be an inseparable part of the State of Israel for eternity," Netanyahu said in the Gush Etzion enclave. Speaking after meeting U.S. President Barack Obama's Middle East envoy in Jerusalem, Netanyahu vowed Israel would also keep its two biggest West Bank settlements, Maale Adumim and Ariel. His comments came as no surprise to the Palestinians, who were put on notice by

    Faced with the intense difficulty of what to say about Ariel Sharon, the former Israeli prime minister who died early Saturday after eight years in a coma, President Barack Obama didn’t say much. The statement from Obama — who never met Sharon, and wasn’t yet even running for president when he fell into a coma, mentioned nothing about the Israeli leader’s own complicated history with war and peace, remarking only in sending “our deepest condolences” that he was a leader who “dedicated his life to the State of Israel.”

    Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu has ordered his housing minister to reconsider construction plans for more than 20,000 homes in the West Bank. He said the plans, announced by Housing Minister Uri Ariel earlier on Tuesday, would create unnecessary friction with the international community. The US had earlier said it was "deeply concerned" over the Israeli plans. The Palestinians had said they would appeal to the UN, warning that Israel's move would kill off peace talks. In a statement, Mr Netanyahu said he had asked Housing Minister Uri Ariel "to reconsider" plans for potential construction of new homes for Jewish settlers...

    Housing Minister Uri Ariel (Bayit Yehudi) has become a target for left-wing anger. Ariel’s encouragement of housing projects built for Jews in Jerusalem has led various groups to accuse him of trying to “mess up the peace talks.” The latest such project is an initiative to build 63 housing units between the majority-Jewish neighborhood of Armon Hanetziv and the majority-Arab Jabal Mukaber neighborhood. The new homes will be marketed to Israelis. Ariel will be at the site on Sunday for the inauguration of the new project, as will Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat. Leftist activists published statements expressing their frustration with...
  • Does White House Video Confirm Obama is Boycotting Ariel U?

    A White House video which states that President Barack Obama's planned speech before Israeli university students is the centerpiece of his visit, also appears to confirm that the White House deliberately left Ariel University students out of the event. The spokesman in the video, Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes, says in it that the universities chosen to send students to the event were the ones that "partner" with the U.S. Embassy. This explanation places responsibility for leaving out Ariel – while including all of Israel's other universities – on the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv.

    A Jewish baby targeted by Arab terrorists continues to fight for her life. Two-year-old Adelle Biton was hurt Thursday when the car she was in veered off the road and into a truck that was standing on the road's shoulder, as a result of an ambush by Arab youths. The Arabs were hurling rocks at passing cars on the Trans-Samaria Highway (Route 5), at the Gitai Avisar Junction near Ariel. Adelle's mother, Advah, who was driving the car, also suffered moderate to serious injuries, and two of Adelle's sisters, Naama (6) and Avigayil (4), were moderately wounded. Adelle underwent a...

    MK Danny Danon (Likud) on Friday called on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to intervene and complete the process of recognizing the Ariel University Center in the Shomron as a full-fledged university. Danon’s call came following reports that Defense Minister Ehud Barak has been delaying the announcement of Ariel’s recognition as a university for over three weeks. The Judea and Samaria Council for Higher Education (CHE-JS) has already decided to recognize Ariel as a university, but final approval needs to come from the IDF, which has legal authority over Judea and Samaria. “This delay is unacceptable,” said Danon, who noted that...

    The Ariel University Center of Samaria held a special conference on Monday, entitled “Best Plans for a Peaceful Israel/Palestine” conference. The conference, the second of its kind, featured three Israeli and three Arab speakers, each of whom presented his idea for a solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict. The event was attended by students at the Ariel University Center, some of whom are Orthodox Jews, but also by some Israeli-Arab students and Palestinian Authority Arabs from the PA-controlled areas of Judea and Samaria. This made the conference even more significant, since Ariel is considered by the PA a “settlement” built on...

    A tiny moon has been caught floating in front of Uranus for the first time, the Hubble Space Telescope reveals. The moon's shadow can also be seen on the planet's cloud tops, creating a solar eclipse on Uranus itself. Hubble imaged the event unexpectedly in July 2006, during a set of observations meant to study the planet's clouds. "When we first got this image back, we looked at it and said, 'What's that bright spot and that dark spot?'" says team member Heidi Hammel of the Space Science Institute in Boulder, Colorado, US. "We thought, it must be a problem...

    ERUSALEM-- Ariel Sharon's pneumonia is less severe, and he has been taken out of intensive care but is still in serious condition, a hospital spokesman said Tuesday. The former prime minister, 78, has been in a coma since he suffered the second of two strokes on Jan. 4. He has undergone extensive surgery to stop cerebral bleeding, in addition to other relatively minor procedures. Sharon was transferred back to the respiratory rehabilitation department at Tel Aviv's Chaim Sheba Medical Center Tuesday since there has been a "noticeable improvement in his kidney function and the pneumonia in his lungs," spokesman David...

    Doctors inserted a feeding tube in Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's stomach on Wednesday, according to Jerusalem's Hadassah Hospital, where he is being treated for a massive stroke. Sharon, 77, has been in a coma since he suffered a stroke on Jan. 4 and the stomach procedure was further evidence that he is likely to be incapacitated for a long time. Long-term care specialists and a U.S. authority on comatose patients have examined Sharon in recent days. Experts say his chances of regaining consciousness or a meaningful level of activity are slim. "Tonight Prime Minister Ariel Sharon underwent a gastrostomy,...

    Israel has vowed to eliminate the leadersip of the Islamic Jihad group after a Palestinian suicide bombing yesterday killed five Israelis. The attack, which took place at a busy shopping mall, was carried out by a member of the radical Palestinian organisation, which has claimed responsibility for most terrorist attacks on Israel. Ariel Sharon, currently fighting an election campaign against foes who accuse him of being too soft on Palestine, convened his security cabinet to lay out plans to retaliate for the bombing. Shaul Mofaz, Israel's defense minister, authorised the assassination of the leaders of Islamic Jihad and asked for...
  • Foe of Sharon to run for Israel's Likud leadership ["Rightist?"..."Rebel?"]

    TEL AVIV, Aug 9 (Reuters) - A leading Israeli rightist said on Tuesday he would seek to topple Prime Minister Ariel Sharon as head of the ruling Likud party before the next general election, due in 2006. Uzi Landau, leader of a Likud "rebel" faction that tried in vain to scuttle Sharon's Gaza pullout plan in votes of the cabinet and parliament, told a news conference that he would run in Likud's next party primary. Sharon's main primary rival is expected to be Benjamin Netanyahu, an ex-prime minister who resigned as finance minister on Sunday in protest at the plan...
  • Disengagement: A Tale of Two Israels?

    When reading some of the more right-leaning, pro-Israeli pundits, one would be led to believe that Israel is a nation completely divided over Ariel Sharon’s “disengagement plan,” whereby the Jewish state withdraws from Gaza and some of the West Bank in return for Palestinian promises of “peace.” I share the concerns of the anti-disengagement camp, but do not accept the premise of some of their lot that Israel is on the brink of “civil war.” Just looking at opinion polls of Israelis, one can see that there is momentum for the disengagement plan. The Tel Aviv University Peace Index of...

    Sharon Avoids Charges in Funding Case; Son Indicted 1 hour, 38 minutes ago By Megan Goldin JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel's attorney general decided not to file charges against Prime Minister Ariel Sharon in a campaign funding scandal but indicted his son on Thursday, the Justice Ministry said. Attorney General Menachem Mazuz closed a three-year investigation of Sharon, saying there was insufficient evidence of involvement in setting up shell companies to funnel foreign donations to his 1999 primary campaign. Foreign funding of political campaigns is illegal in Israel. An indictment of Sharon could have jeopardised his "disengagement" plan after parliament on...
