    Greetings Readers, Friends, and Other Visitors: The Time Traveler appeared suddenly in my study on New Year’s Eve, 2004. He was a stolid, grizzled man in a gray tunic and looked to be in his late-sixties or older. He also appeared to be the veteran of wars or of some terrible accident since he had livid scars on his face and neck and hands, some even visible in his scalp beneath a fuzz of gray hair cropped short in a military cut. One eye was covered by a black eyepatch. Before I could finish dialing 911 he announced in a...

    The US State Department has finally called out the anti-Semitism of the Palestinian Authority, in its newly-released annual report on international religious freedom. The new report indicated that official Palestinian Authority media “carried religiously intolerant material” in its television programs that “denied a historical Jewish presence in Jerusalem” or referred to Jews as “evil.” […] In addition, this year’s report dropped claims that the PA was actively working to prevent anti-Semitic hate-speech. According to JNS, the State Department had previously asserted that the PA worked to “prevent […] sermons with intolerant or anti-Semitic messages.” …

    Malaysia has decided it would rather not host the 67th FIFA Congress next year, as it means hosting an Israeli delegation as part of it. Malaysia was scheduled to host the Congress in its capital city of Kuala Lumpur on May 11-12, 2017. It refused to issue visas to Israeli delegates, and therefore had to relinquish the hosting rights. Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister Zahid Hamidi said his country could not provide visas to Israeli officials because of the lack of diplomatic ties with Israel and because "local sensitivities" might be riled up. "Some of the conditions of hosting the event...

It was a typical Nasrallah speech that included all his familiar themes: Israelis had lost trust in the institutions that defend them, and the 2006 fighting had cast doubt on Israel’s ability to continue to exist at all. He said that Israel and its prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, are weak and tired and cannot defend themselves for much longer. He also mentioned his 2006 “spider web...

In a recently issued “platform,” more than 60 groups that form the core of the Black Lives Matter movement went out of their way to single out one foreign nation to accuse of genocide and apartheid. No, it wasn’t the Syrian government, which has killed tens of thousands of innocent people with barrel bombs, chemicals, and gas....

    A week after a female Saudi Arabaian judo competitor allegedly forfeited her first-round match to avoid meeting an Israeli in the second round, Egyptian judoka Islam El Shehaby has been banished from the Rio de Janeiro Olympics for refusing to shake hands after losing to Israel’s Or Sasson. Sasson twice bowed in El Shehaby’s direction and approached him with his hand extended after the victory, but the Egyptian backpedaled before walking away from the Israeli’s appreciative gesture. The International Olympic Committee reprimanded El Shehaby after the act of poor sportsmanship, and the Egyptian Olympic delegation sent the judoka home on...

    While disrespect and violence toward Israeli athletes is hardly a new issue affecting the Olympic games, the ongoing competitions in Rio de Janeiro continue to provide disturbing examples. Anecdotal evidence of bad sportsmanship and other slights aimed at athletes from Israel have surfaced over the past two weeks, with one Egyptian’s refusal to shake his rival’s hand earning some of the harshest rebukes by critics online. Numerous commentators urged the International Olympic Committee to impose harsh penalties on Islam El Shehaby, the judo athlete who snubbed Israel’s Or Sasson after losing a heavyweight bout last week.

    With an indictment unsealed last week, Israeli investigators have sounded an alarm over the illicit use of global aid money to fund Palestinian terrorism. Prosecutors in the city of Beersheba allege that Mohammed El-Halabi, Gaza Strip director of the California-based charity World Vision, transferred tens of millions of dollars to Hamas to buy weapons and build underground attack tunnels. Although World Vision denies fault, the governments of Australia and Germany have halted donations pending investigations. This revelation should spur a broader reassessment of American aid to the Palestinian government. For two decades the Palestinian government has used U.S. and other...

(Photo: Mendy Hechtman/Flash90) A dozen police chiefs from the United States have been touring Israel as guests of the Israel Police over the past week in an effort to learn from Israel’s experience with law enforcement and counter-terrorism. “It is a counter-terrorism seminar, and the officers who have come out here to learn about how we have dealt with terrorism,” said Israel Police Spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld. The 15 officers were taken all around Israel and met...

    The 2016 Olympic Games have been billed as an opportunity to put politics aside in the spirit of international camaraderie, but that’s not necessarily how it’s working out for Israeli athletes. Animosity toward the 47-member delegation has triggered a reprimand from the International Olympic Committee and alarm from Jewish groups such as the Anti-Defamation League, which issued a statement this week decrying anti-Israel “hostility” in Rio de Janeiro. “Shocking but not surprisingly, the Lebanese and Saudi delegations obviously have the wrong idea about the Olympic Games,” said a statement Wednesday by Roz Rothstein, CEO of the pro-Israel group Stand With...

    The US Administration has warned Israel against demolishing the Arab village of Susiya in south Mt. Hebron, according to a story in Ha’aretz this week. Both Israeli and American senior officials have warned that should Israel go ahead and demolish the village, US response would be harsh. Susiya is a legitimate archaeological site in the southern Judean Mountains that bears the archaeological remains of a 5th century CE enormous synagogue, one of the largest and most magnificent ever discovered, which was turned into a mosque by the Arab invaders in the 8th century. The name has bee usurped by Bedouins...

    Oscar Biscet, a well-known human rights activist from Havana, spent over a decade in Cuban prisons for a host of alleged crimes: dishonoring national symbols, public disorder, inciting delinquent behavior, and, ultimately, crimes against state security. “They put me in a very tiny cell full of tuberculosis patients,” he recalled last week. In another case of the perverse treatment he received for publicly opposing the regime, the prison guards threw him into a small cell with mental patients who had not been given their medication. “They are more subtle than Hitler and Stalin, but they have the same mechanisms,” he...

    Eighty thousand dollars of aid donated to World Vision by the United Kingdom, which was intended to help the civilians of Gaza, build badly-needed infrastructure, and provide food and medical care to those in need, was instead invested in building a Hamas military base and pocketed by the terrorists who constructed it. "In this compound we have identified surveillance and observation capabilities facing north, towards Israel." IDF Spokesperson Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said. "I can also tell you that in June 2015 we targeted components within the compound following a rocket attack against Israel." The active Hamas military base, codenamed...

    When you first see Israel Aircraft Industries' Harop drone, the "Star Trek" association is unmistakable. Like the Klingon Bird of Prey it resembles, the Harop is small, maneuverable, nearly impossible to detect, relatively inexpensive, and is downright deadly. And when it comes to accomplishing its mission, it even operates on the belief that “today is a great day to die.” The diminutive drone doesn’t carry any munitions; it doesn’t need to, because it is the munition. A 50-pound high explosive charge is part of the Harop itself, and if it finds an enemy radar or another target of opportunity in...
