    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered his ministers to accelerate efforts to deport citizens of South Sudan, the Ivory Coast, Ghana and Ethiopia who are living in Israel illegally on Sunday. Speaking at Sunday's cabinet meeting, Netanyahu said that while it is not possible to expel citizens of Eritrea and Sudan, whose lives would be at risk in their home countries, holding facilities for them must be built in the Negev as quickly as possible. (Snip) Sudan is classified as an enemy country, another reason that infiltrators can't be returned there, he said, while Eritrea, though it has diplomatic relations with

    Calypso Louis is back with another deranged rant. He brings back the NOI's long held demand for a separate Black nation. Farrakhan claims that God will punish America unless this new Black nation is formed. He also mentions the Mahdi is about to return! He claims the US will attack Iran for Israel and that there are plans to bomb Mecca! This is one of his most evil speeches. He claims "his god" will destroy American cities in retaliation of a possible bombing of Iran. His god isn't my god. Farrakhan is pure evil.

    Jerusalem - The Jewish Agency is bracing itself for the immigration of tens of thousands French Jews into Israel as a result of a growing anti-Semitism in France, a spokesperson for the organisation said on Sunday. Senior government officials including Immigration Absorption Minister Tzippi Livni, cabinet director Ilan Cohen and the president of the quasi-governmental Jewish Agency, Sallai Meridor, met last week "to work out how to come to the help of potential Jewish immigrants from France", Yaden Vatikai told AFP.

"One of the lessons of the Holocaust is that even if you want to fight against a wave of anti-Semitism, the best [thing] is to leave if you can," Klarsfeld said in an interview with The Jerusalem Post during a visit to Israel. At the same time, Klarsfeld, who lives in Paris, said that he does not expect there be a great wave of Jewish emigration from France to either Israel or the...

    PARIS (Reuters) - France sharply criticized Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon on Sunday after he urged French Jews to emigrate immediately to Israel to escape what he called "the wildest anti-Semitism." Branding Sharon's language "unacceptable," a French Foreign Ministry spokesman said Paris had demanded an explanation. France, home to western Europe's biggest Jewish and Muslim communities, has been troubled by attacks on Jewish people and property in recent years, some of it blamed on youths of North African origin angered by the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Sharon, who regularly calls on all the world's Jews to migrate to Israel, acknowledged in a...

The magazine also reported Sunday that the German government has known about Israel's nuclear weapons program for decades, despite its official denials. Last month, Israel received its fourth Dolphin–class submarine from Germany, which is slated to become operational in 2013.

    The Obama administration refuses, time and again, to say that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. Victoria Nuland, speaking from the State Department, recently repeated over and over that the status of Jerusalem is subject to final status negotiations. Israel thus becomes the only country recognized by the U.S. that is not allowed to name its own capital. But the U.S. recognizes Germany’s capital. It’s Berlin. This is most curious. The United States, in organizing the United Nations in 1945, required that only those nations that had declared war on Germany could be members. President Roosevelt told Stalin and Churchill...

'Sanctions hardly ever work in an efficient manner,' Mr Putin said after meeting with French counterpart Francois Hollande. As Mr Hollande insisted that Mr Assad's departure was a necessary step to resolving the Syria crisis, Mr Putin indicated it was not essential. 'Why are we thinking that if we push the current leadership from power, then tomorrow general well-being will begin there,' Mr Putin said.

'There must be sanctions' against the Syrian regime, Mr Hollande added, noting that he recognised 'the risks of destabilisation, the risks of civil war' in Syria. 'Bashar al-Assad's regime has conducted itself in an unacceptable and intolerable manner. It has committed acts that disqualify itself' from governing, Mr Hollande said. He said Mr Assad's departure was 'a prerequisite for a political transition' in Syria.

Sen McCain attacked Russia and China for opposing aggressive action on Syria, and President Barack Obama - who defeated him in the 2008 election - for not acting more forcefully on the issue. "It is shameful that the United Nations Security Council should again be hindered by Russia and China by their vetoes for any significant action against Syria," he said.

    WASHINGTON — The once highly touted Arab Spring has become the Arab Summer — scorching hot, unbearably dry and very brutal and bloody. Last weekend, as Americans prepared to celebrate Memorial Day and commemorated the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War, Bashar Assad unleashed tanks, artillery and his Quds force-trained shabiha militia to kill more than 100 Syrian civilians — most of them women and children. Though the atrocities and carnage in Syria continue, little but bluff and bluster is produced by the United Nations and the Obama administration. In the aftermath of the May 25 massacre, 11 nations...

Lebanon is not sufficient for altar fires, nor its animals enough for burnt offerings. 17. Before him all the nations are as nothing; they are regarded by him as worthless and less than nothing.

    Yet another salvo in Obama's war against Israel: the Obama Administration is giving the UN funds for illegal African immigrants into Israel, who suddenly open up businesses there while Jewish-owned businesses are being shut down. It seems as if Obama will stop at nothing to undermine the Jewish State. Who among Obama's antisemitic cronies is profiting from this fresh betrayal of our only real ally in the Middle East? Here is some background on what is going on: Israel Can't Solve Africa's Problems - Jonathan S. Tobin, Commentary Israel, much to its surprise, has found itself being swamped by unwelcome...

    The complexity of the latest 'Flame' virus bears the hallmarks of a program engineered by a state, a number of Israeli computer experts believe. As details of Flame - the third major virus discovered to have an affinity to Iranian computer systems in recent years - filtered through the media, network security experts in Israel, requesting anonymity, studied the initial reports, and indicated that they believed small groups of hackers could not be behind the virus.

    The Cannes film festival screening of "The Anti-Semite," a film by a French comic with a history of anti-Semitism, was cancelled. The film by and starring Dieudonne M'Bala M'Bala, was produced by the Iranian Documentary and Experimental Film Center. It reportedly pokes fun at the Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz, where an estimated 1.5 million Jews were killed during the Holocaust, and features Dieudonne as a violent and alcoholic character dressed as a Nazi officer for a fancy dress party. Robert Faurisson, a convicted Holocaust denier, also makes a cameo appearance in the film. The film reportedly will be sold over...

    Operatives linked to Iran tried to kill foreign diplomats, including Israelis and Americans, in at least seven countries over 13 months, the Washington Post reported. New evidence uncovered by investigators in four countries linked the assassination attempts to either Iran-backed Hezbollah militants or operatives based inside Iran, the Post reported Monday, citing U.S. and Middle Eastern security officials. The officials reportedly said that the assassination attempts stopped in early spring, when Iran began to take a softer tone with the West. Shortly after, Iranian officials formally accepted a proposal to resume negotiations with six world powers on proposals to limit...

    BOSTON (Reuters) - Security experts discovered a highly complex computer virus in Iran and the Middle East that they believe was deployed at least five years ago to engage in state-sponsored espionage. Evidence suggest that the virus, dubbed Flame, may have been built on behalf of the same nation that commissioned the Stuxnet worm that attacked Iran's nuclear program in 2010, according to Kaspersky Lab, the Russian cyber security software maker that claimed responsibility for discovering the virus. Iran's National Computer Emergency Response Team also said Flame might be linked to recent cyber attacks that officials in Tehran have said...

    Security experts have discovered a new data-stealing virus dubbed Flame they say has lurked inside thousands of computers across the Middle East for as long as five years as part of a sophisticated cyber warfare campaign. It is the most complex piece of malicious software discovered to date, said Kaspersky Lab security senior researcher Roel Schouwenberg, whose company discovered the virus. The results of the Lab's work were made available on Monday. Schouwenberg said he did not know who built Flame. If the Lab's analysis is correct, Flame could be the third major cyber weapon uncovered after the Stuxnet virus...

    After a controversial six-year-long translation project, a Jordanian think tank based in Amman published an Arabic translation of the Babylonian Talmud. After gaining enthusiastic responses to the project from the Arab League, 96 scholars began work on the translation. The editors are happy with the project, stating that the lack of an Arabic Talmud "has always been an obstacle to understanding Judaism." Despite some polarized and politicized responses, most have adopted a positive impression of the massive scholarly work. Dr. Raquel Ukeles of the Israeli National Library states that the project stemmed from scientific curiosity, and the introduction discusses the...

    One of the most dramatic archaeological monuments in Jordan -- an admittedly Jewish one -- has been repeatedly misidentified. French historian Ernest Will called it the "Finest Hellenistic monument in the Near East" and considered it a chateau. The structure is known locally as Qasr al-Abd, or "Castle of the Slave (or Servant)." It is part of a 75-acre estate called Airaq al-Amir (also spelled 'Iraq el-Emir), lying 12 miles southwest of the Jordanian capital, Amman. The site was entered via a monumental gateway, much of which remains in a ruined state and hidden by undergrowth. The glory of the...

    25 May 2012 Syria Crisis: Homs Fighting 'Leaves 50 Dead' At least 50 people, including 13 children, have been killed in Syria's restive Homs province, opposition activists say, calling it a "massacre". They said scores were wounded in the violence in Houla, as government forces shelled and attacked the town. If the toll is right, it would be one of the bloodiest attacks in one area since a nominal truce began in April. Meanwhile, UN chief Ban Ki-moon said the opposition controlled "significant parts of some cities". In a letter to the Security Council, Mr Ban said the situation remained...
