  • Jews Attacked in Jerusalem Firebomb Barrage

    Jewish Press ^ | April 16th, 2012 | Malkah Fleisher
    On Sunday evening, Jewish homes in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Maale HaZeitim were attacked with a barrage of Molotov cocktails, causing damage to property. Miraculously, no injuries were reported, though some neighborhood children who were nearby the attack reported being traumatized by the event. The attacker managed to throw approximately 10 homemade bombs at apartment buildings belonging to the Jewish neighborhood, before being scared off by a guard who fired his weapon in the air. Maale HaZeitim is situated on the historic Mount of Olives, just south of the ancient Jewish cemetery containing 150,000 graves, including that of former Prime...

    Christian Science Monitor ^ | December 18, 2003 | Ben Lynfield
    JERUSALEM - For centuries it has been known as "Absalom's Tomb." People made pilgrimages to it. Jews, Christians, and Muslims would throw stones at it to punish King David's rebellious son. But now, because of an almost chance discovery, one of Jerusalem's oldest landmarks is reemerging as one of the sites of early Christianity. A recently unveiled inscription, believed to date circa AD 350, identifies the monument as the tomb of Zacharias, the father of John the Baptist. Scholars say it does not necessarily mean Zacharias was buried on the site and some completely discount that possibility. But the find...

    Shurat HaDin – Israel Law Center has received notice that the US Supreme Court decided to dismiss a lawsuit brought on behalf of the family of a Palestinian-American murdered at the hands of Palestinian intelligence officers in Jericho in 1995. The Court ruled that the Torture Victim Protection Act, as it is currently drafted, did not allow the family to sue the Palestinian Authority and Palestine Liberation Organization. The Justices held that the use of the term “individual” in the law’s wording denoted that only private individuals, rather than corporations or organizations, could be targeted. “We were sorry to hear...

    Speigel ^ | Matthias Schulz (AFP)
    The Jews had significant competition in antiquity when it came to worshipping Yahweh. Archeologists have discovered a second great temple not far from Jerusalem that predates its better known cousin. It belonged to the Samaritans, and may have been edited out of the Bible once the rivalry had been decided. Clad in a gray coat, Aharon ben Ab-Chisda ben Yaacob, 85, is sitting in the dim light of his house. He strikes up a throaty chant, a litany in ancient Hebrew. He has a full beard and is wearing a red kippah on his head. The man is a high...

    Biblical Archaeology Review ^ | April 2010 | Harvey Minkoff
    In some cases the traditional text is clearly superior, but in others the version in the scrolls is better. Thanks to the scrolls, more and more textual problems in the Hebrew Bible are being resolved. The notes in newer Bible translations list variant readings from the scrolls, and in some cases, the translations incorporate these readings in the text as the preferred reading. No one has ever seriously suggested that the Dead Sea Scrolls contain anything like an eleventh commandment; but the scrolls do help clarify numerous difficult phrases in the Hebrew Bible, and for textual scholars that is more...

Such a direct reference to current events and politics in the Holocaust Memorial is unusual. "On this day, we must realize a supreme obligation, and this obligation is not just to remember the past but also to learn its lessons, and most importantly – to implement these lessons, in order to continue to safeguard our nation's future," said Netanyahu. "This is especially true in our generation, which again faces the call to destroy the Jewish...

    I am a child survivor, and went through the destruction of a defenseless people by an enemy called Nazism. Now, the blood of Israel flows in its streets. A second wave of Nazism breaks over us. And I hear phrases of blame like "cycles of violence," "ending the occupation," as if something we were doing, rather than our very existence were responsible for attacks against us. I hear lies, distortions, self-serving versions of history. Occupation? Years ago when there was no occupation, what did they do?

    Laura Rozen’s account of the behind-the-scenes action during the Iranian nuclear talks in Istanbul undermines the notion that President Obama is in control of the P5+1 diplomatic process that he fiercely defended during the weekend. As Rozen’s reporting makes clear, it is the European Union’s Catherine Ashton who was clearly in charge of the affair, and as long as that fierce critic of Israel is calling the shots, it’s unlikely the Iranians will surrender their nuclear ambitions. Indeed, by championing Iran’s right to nuclear development, which could be ultimately used for military purposes, Ashton may be steering the negotiations toward...

The report, screened on the main evening news of Channel 10, was remarkable both in terms of the access granted to the reporter, who said he had spent weeks with the pilots and other personnel he interviewed, and in the fact that his assessments on a strike were cleared by the military censor.

Iran, for its part, though engaging Obama, has no intention of abiding by the agreement and is...

    excerpt- Anything that retards Iran's nuclear progress is helpful. But even if the talks "solved" the nuclear issue—virtually inconceivable, given the measures the Iranians have taken to preserve their program—a bigger problem would remain: the Iranian regime itself. Whatever progress is made in the context of overlapping short-term interests, it will do little to change the long-term strategic problems presented by a hostile Iran. And Iran is hostile. It is one of the most underreported stories of the past decade: As we went to war in Afghanistan and Iraq, Iran went to war with us. Tehran has provided weapons to...

    A vaccine that can train cancer patients' own bodies to seek out and destroy tumour cells has been developed by scientists. The therapy, which targets a molecule found in 90 per cent of all cancers, could provide a universal injection that allows patients' immune systems to fight off common cancers including breast and prostate cancer. Preliminary results from early clinical trials have shown the vaccine can trigger an immune response in patients and reduce levels of disease. The scientists behind the vaccine now hope to conduct larger trials in patients to prove it can be effective against a range of...

    Israel should at least make good on its promise of “economic peace” and ensure we won’t have riots next door. Over the past couple of weeks I have been spending a considerable amount of time in Ramallah, assisting in the development of a project on trade facilitation which will be funded by the US government to help the Palestinian private sector to build the economy and ensure continued stability. The picture that has been painted of the situation on the ground is most worrying. The optimism of the period of 2008-2010 during which Salam Fayyad launched and implemented the first...

    Hamas terror boss Fathi Hamad is a notable figure. Hamad is both the director of Hamas's al-Aksa television station and the terror group's "minister" of the interior and national security. His double portfolio is a clear expression of the much ignored fact that for terrorists, propaganda is inseparable from violence. Hamad's key posts make him a man worth listening to. His statements necessarily indicate Hamas's general direction. On March 23, Hamad was interviewed by Egypt's Al Hekma television station. The interview was translated by MEMRI. Hamad made two central points. First, he claimed that the Palestinian war against Israel is...

    WASHINGTON -- The government of Israel is again asking the United States to release convicted spy Jonathan Pollard, a former Navy analyst serving a life sentence for espionage. But the White House said Monday its position has not changed, and President Barack Obama has no intention of releasing Pollard. Pollard was arrested in 1985 and convicted in 1987. Democratic and Republican administrations alike have repeatedly refused Israeli appeals to release Pollard. The latest request was made Monday in a letter to Obama from Israeli President Shimon Peres, who asked that Pollard be released on humanitarian grounds because his health has...

    Arab racism prevents peace Op-ed: Hebron house dispute highlights Arab desire for Middle East free of any Jewish presence Giulio Meotti Published: 04.04.12, 11:32 / Israel Opinion The invisible headlines go beyond the settlers who bought a house near Hebron's Cave of the Patriarchs. The real story is not about home ownership; rather, it's at the very core of the Mideastern conflict. While Israel is not "Arabrein" (Jewish citizens live with their fellow Arab citizens and neither they nor anyone else suggests they are "an obstacle to peace"), a Nazi-like ideology sees the entire State of Israel as an alien...
