    "On the northern border, in Syria, there has been unrest for four years now,” said Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon Tuesday. “Despite this, we have been able to keep this threat away from the residents of the Golan Heights and the North. "We have been following a very clear policy,” he added. “In this matter, we are intolerant toward any breach of our sovereignty. There are other developments in Syria, as well, like the Russian presence and the Iranian presence. That is in northern Syria. But we made clear to the Russians that we have no intention of abandoning our ability...

    Dark streaks on Mars's surface may indicate liquid water on the barren planet, the National Aeronautics and Space Association (NASA) revealed Monday. “We now know Mars was once a planet very much like Earth with warm salty seas and fresh water lakes,” Jim Green, NASA's planetary science director, stated. “But something has happened to Mars, it lost its water.” But recent photos from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter show long, dark streaks - some as long as 100m - which scientists believe could be a live source of flowing water - and, just maybe, could prove the existence of life (or...

    school in central France has hailed back to the Middle Ages this week, after forcing Jewish and Muslim students who do not eat pork, as well as vegetarians, to wear red and yellow discs around their necks. The Piedalloues primary school in Auxerre, in Burgundy, forced eighteen students to wear the discs, in order to ensure that cafeteria workers did not give them pork or meat. The practice was withdrawn this week after outraged parents and local officials compared the practice to wearing yellow stars, as mandated by the Nazis, the Telegraph reports. The mayor immediately ordered the practice be...

    Mahmoud al-Zahar, a member of the Hamas politburo and a senior official in the terrorist organization, threatened violence against the Palestinian Authority (PA) on Friday despite the unity agreement between the two groups sealed last April. Speaking at a massive rally in Gaza's Khan Younis organized by Hamas in support of the Islamist rioters attacking police on the Temple Mount, al-Zahar slammed the PA for not openly conducting attacks against Israel. "If (Hamas's) Al-Qassam Brigades, (Islamic Jihad's) Al-Quds Brigades and the forces of the struggle were to adopt the policies and the leaders and countries around them, they wouldn't be...

    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu held an emergency security meeting at his office in Jerusalem on Tuesday night, after the wave of terror attacks in Jerusalem over the Rosh Hashanah holiday including massive riots on the Temple Mount and a lethal rock attack. "We will fight through all means necessary against rock throwers, firebomb and pipe bomb throwers, and those who shoot fireworks to harm citizens and police officers," said Netanyahu. "On the eve of the holiday it was again proven that rock throwing can kill," he added. "These activities will meet a very strong response of punishment and prevention. We...

    The influential Saudi Binladin Group has been suspended by Saudi Arabia after one of its cranes at the Grand Mosque in Mecca collapsed last Friday, killing 107 and wounding 238 people at the holiest site in Islam which houses the Kaaba cube Muslims pray towards. Ironically the lethal crane collapse took place on September 11 amid high winds and a sandstorm; Binladin Group was founded in 1931 by the father of Osama bin Laden, the infamous late terror leader of Al Qaeda who conducted the 9/11 attacks against the US exactly 14 years earlier. Osama's brother Bakr runs the Binladin...

    The United Nations voted in favor of allowing the Palestinian flag to be raised at its headquarters in New York. Unsurprisingly, the resolution passed with an overwhelming majority, with 119 countries voting in favor, 8 voting against, and 45 abstaining. Among the countries that voted against were Israel, Canada, and the United States. The draft resolution presented last week to the General Assembly would allow the flags of the Palestinian Authority (PA) and of the Holy See to be hoisted alongside those of the 193 member states. Both the Vatican and "Palestine" have non-member observer status at the United Nations....

    The Palestinian Authority responded unenthusiastically Thursday to offers by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to come to Ramallah and renew peace talks unconditionally with the Palestinian Authority (PA). According to Kol Yisrael radio, Palestinian “prime minister” Rami Hamdallah said that the Palestinians are interested in a new framework for talks. He explained that the talks would not be renewed if a date is not set for ending them, and if the problem of borders is not discussed. Another senior PA official, top Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat, said that the idea of returning to the unconditional negotiations is “a trap.” He said...

    Opposition leader Yitzhak Herzog has called on Israel to accept refugees from Syria, in addition to the humanitarian efforts it is already making. Speaking at the weekly "Shabbatarbut" event in Tel Aviv, Herzog asserted that "Jews cannot be indifferent when hundreds of thousands of refugees are searching for a safe haven." Israel has already been providing medical aid to Syrians injured near its borders. But his comments proved controversial, as Israel is already struggling to deal with tens of thousands of illegal African immigrants claiming refugee status. In particular, working-class residents in neighborhoods in southern Tel Aviv - where most...

    Heinz tomato ketchup is a household name around the world, including in Israel. But now, thanks to a court ruling, that's about to change... sort of. Osem, Israel's leading food brand and top producer of ketchup, has succeeded in its bid to knock out its lead rival, by banning it from being called "ketchup." In its petition to the courts back in January of this year, Osem claimed Heinz's product did not have enough tomato content to be called "ketchup." Now, after a long legal battle, the court has ruled in Osem's favor, and Heinz will henceforth be known as...

    Gaza-based terrorists fired three rockets towards southern Israel on Thursday evening, all three of which exploded in Gaza. There were no sirens in the Gaza Belt area, but some locals reported hearing explosions. A similar incident occurred on Saturday night, when two rockets that were fired from Gaza exploded on the Palestinian side of the border fence. Saturday’s rocket fire came a day after Hamas called for all able-bodied Arabs to attack IDF soldiers and "settlers" as "legitimate targets" after an Arab infant was killed in an arson attack in the village of Duma in Samaria.

    Though a U.S. court awarded 11 American families over $200 million from the PA and the PLO for terror attacks that killed their loved ones, the U.S. government may intervene on behalf of the terrorists. So reports, in news that was confirmed by one of the lawyers for the families, Kent Yalowitz. The problem from the standpoint of the U.S. is that the damages awarded are so high that they may cause the Palestinian Authority to go bankrupt.

    Syria's regime killed at least 28 people, mostly civilians, on Saturday when its warplanes dropped massive makeshift bombs on a town held by the Islamic State (ISIS) group, a monitor said. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the bombs used in the attacks on Al-Bab, in the northern province of Aleppo, were three times more destructive than so-called barrel bombs, which have already drawn widespread international condemnation. "The army used 'container bombs' which are three times more powerful than 'barrel bombs'," said Observatory director Rami Abdel Rahman. The barrel bomb was previously joined by the elephant rocket, another crude...

    Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan (Likud) has warned against any further prisoner swaps with terrorist groups in return for captive citizens. Speaking at a "Meet The Press" interview, Erdan stated that Israel must do everything in its power to free the two Israeli civilians currently held hostage by Hamas in Gaza - 26-year-old Avraham (Avera) Meginsu, and a still-unidentified Arab-Israeli resident of the Negev. However, Erdan warned that past experience has clearly demonstrated that acceding to Hamas's exaggerated demands to release scores of convicted terrorists from prison in exchange would be a grave mistake. "To free terrorists, in light of...

    Americans for Peace Now (APN) issued a stinging condemnation Wednesday of the "vile anti-Semitic statements" made by the Palestinian Liberation Organization's ambassador to Chile. During the "Conference for Peace in Palestine and Israel" in Santiago in May, it was revealed Wednesday, Nabil Jada'a insisted "there is no Jewish people" and claimed the "Zionist movement" is trying to dominate the world. APN called on Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas to both repudiate Jada's statements as well as dismiss the ambassador. “These abhorrent statements, anti-Semitic canards of the crudest kind, are an outrage," APN CEO and President Debra DeLee stated. "Such hateful...

    IDF Binyamin Brigade Commander Yisrael Shomer shot dead terrorist Mohammed al-Kasbeh last Friday, after the latter took part in a near-fatal mob attack on his vehicle close to the Kalandia neighborhood north of Jerusalem. Israeli politicians rushed to Shomer's defense, while many international media outlets portrayed al-Kasbeh as a victim, downplaying his attack as part of a peaceful "protest." But a more accurate picture is beginning to emerge of the real al-Kasbeh. Last Saturday, a day after his death, a Facebook group by the name of "Kalandia Refugee Camp First and Foremost" posted a picture of al-Kasbeh posing menacingly with...

    Israel has claimed that Hamas is aiding ISIS's branch in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula in order to free up arms-smuggling routes into Gaza, in preparation for its next war with Israel. In an interview with Israel Radio, a senior IDF officer responsible for monitoring Israel's southern borders with Gaza and Egypt claimed that, despite the ideological differences between them, a strategic alliance has been forged between Hamas in Gaza and ISIS's "Sinai Province." "Why was it is so very important for them [Hamas] to develop the connection with Sinai Province? Because they need the raw materials that would enable the military...

    At an event marking the end of the Ramadan fast on Sunday, President Reuven Rivlin spoke with Arabic language mediaand discussed a number of issues, chief among them the relations between Arabs and Jews in Israel. At the outset, Rivlin noted that both Jews and Muslims had fasted on Sunday – the latter for Ramadan, and the former for the Seventeenth Day of Tammuz, commemorating the events leading up to the destruction of the Holy Temples in Jerusalem. A common fast, said Rivlin, could help build a bridge to understanding to both communities. “I am aware of the distress and...

    Israel's former ambassador to Egypt, Zvi Mazel, currently a researcher at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA), believes that the Egyptian army is not going to be able to successfully fight ISIS. In the end, he believes, the IDF is going to have to do the job. “The Egyptian army has not collapsed, and it is very large, with 600,000 soldiers,” said Mazel. “But for two years they have been fighting guerrillas in Sinai, unsuccessfully. They are just not experienced enough in guerrilla warfare.” Eventually, it is very possible that ISIS will take over Sinai – placing them along...

    A senior Islamic State (ISIS) leader who recruited funds and fighters and procured weapons for the jihadists has been killed in a coalition airstrike in Syria, the Pentagon said Thursday, according to the AFP news agency.

His brother Ali, an ISIS recruiter and person of interest in the 2012 Benghazi attack, was killed by an airstrike in Iraq a day earlier. The Pentagon said Harzi was "responsible for...

    Photo Islamic State-linked militants struck Egyptian army outposts in the Sinai Peninsula on Wednesday in a coordinated wave of suicide bombings and battles that underlined the government's failure to stem an insurgency despite a two-year crackdown. Security officials said dozens of troops were killed, along with nearly 100 attackers. After the attack, which took place just across the border from Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, "We send our condolences to the government and people of Egypt, and to the families of the Egyptians that were slain by this vicious terrorism." Later on Wednesday, Netanyahu said, "We see ISIS [Islamic...
