    The Times of Israel ^ | 12/4/16 | Rebecca Shimoni Stoil
    WASHINGTON — Secretary of State John Kerry excoriated the Israeli right, claiming that support for settlement construction stems from a desire to subvert Israeli-Palestinian peace, during a speech before the Brookings Institution’s Saban Forum on Sunday afternoon. A subdued Kerry, wearing reading glasses and referring to extensive notes, notably refrained from committing to veto any UN resolution intended to establish a Palestinian state, only promising a veto “if it is a biased, unfair resolution calculated to delegitimize Israel.” US officials last week indicated that US President Barack Obama had nearly ruled out any major last-ditch effort to put pressure on...

    WASHINGTON — It was an introspective US Secretary of State John Kerry who came to the closing session of the last Saban Forum of the Obama administration. For four years as secretary of state, the Massachusetts politician had made the short trek to the Willard Intercontinental Hotel in early December, updating an audience that leaned Democratic – and pro-Israel – about the hottest issues on the burner, whether they were peace talks or Iran nuclear negotiations. Introspective Kerry knew that this was his last time to explain before Washington’s think-tank elite why on his watch, the United States had once...

    Israel is upset that France will be requiring goods and produce made by Israelis in the Judean and Samarian [West Bank] areas to be labeled as such, not as products of Israel. The Israeli government is furious, and considers the requirement to be a possible death knell for those goods. Paris published guidelines on enforcing European Union (EU) regulations on produce from the West Bank, including annexed east Jerusalem, which the international community considers occupied Palestinian land, and the Golan Heights, which Israel seized from Syria in 1967. -- The Independent The European Union considers the Eastern side of Jerusalem,...

    YEHUD, Israel — The Israeli company that has built high-tech fences along the country's volatile borders is now trying to build a bridge to the Trump administration — hoping to use its experience to cash in on the president-elect's plan to seal the border with Mexico. Magal Security Systems has been a major player in building high-tech fences and walls along Israel's volatile northern and southern borders, as well as the massive separation barrier that snakes along the frontier with the West Bank. Its products include cameras, sophisticated sensors, robots and software to operate the systems....

    In his inspiring book “Words That Hurt, Words that Heal,” Rabbi Joseph Telushkin wrote: “Because words can be used to inflict devastating and irrevocable suffering, Jewish teachings go so far as to compare cruel words to murder.” Thus it is painful to see the malicious character assassination and false accusations of “anti-Semitism” being hurled against President-elect Trump’s appointee Stephen Bannon and Bannon’s company, Breitbart Media. In fact, as pro-Israel writer and Breitbart senior editor Joel B. Pollak wrote, Bannon is “an American patriot who defends Israel & has deep empathy for the Jewish people.” Pollak is an Orthodox Jew; would...

    Dry weather and strong winds caused wildfires to spread out of control across the country after a single blaze erupted on Monday night in Neve Shalom near Latrun, followed by separate outbreaks in Zichron Yaakov in the North, Gush Etzion and finally the Jerusalem foothills this morning. No one has been reported injured but several homes and property have been destroyed. Some neighborhoods have been evacuated while residents in other communities have been warned to prepare to leave if needed. Fire and Rescue crews are working to get the fire under control, but the unseasonably dry weather, winds and various...

    [The issue here is not if this is a credible threat or not. As an Israel, I will not lose any sleep over this. But it IS revealing. The connection between “Palestine” and “Pakistan” is a very interesting one. Just as there are many similarities between the Indian and Israeli people, their history, both far and near, their cultures – so with Pakistan and Palestine. – ed] In a video posted online last week, a Palestinian Muslim cleric urges the overthrow of Muslim states and the use of Pakistani nuclear weapons to “eliminate the state of the Jews in...

    In a video posted online last week, a Palestinian Muslim cleric urges the overthrow of Muslim states and the use of Pakistani nuclear weapons to “eliminate the state of the Jews in one or two strikes.” In a translation provided by the Middle East Media Research Institute, Sheikh Abd Al-Salam Abu Al-Izz warns Muslims not to expect President-elect Donald Trump to bring about hoped-for nuclear wars. “The Muslims’ reaction to Trump’s victory was: ‘Hopefully, he will destroy (the US) and sit on its ruins. May he engage in nuclear wars, from which (the Muslims) will emerge intact.’ This is...

    Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem The Book of Psalms (Psalm 28) Psalm 28 Of David. 1 To you, Lord, I call;you are my Rock,     do not turn a deaf ear to me.

  • Trump and Armenia’s Occupation of Nagorno-Karabakh

    Recently, Azerbaijan celebrated 25 years of independence from Soviet rule. Arguably Eurasia’s most Western-friendly and secular Muslim-majority nation, Azerbaijan has long fought another battle, one that the election of Donald Trump may shift: the occupation of its Nagorno-Karabakh region by Armenia. As the international community often does, a multilateral body was established to “solve” the problem following a bloody war from 1988 to 1992. For decades, the OSCE Minsk Group, co-chaired by Russia, France, and the U.S., has produced no demonstrable gains. Successive U.S. presidents have paid lip service to the Minsk Group and pleaded for time. The election of Donald...

    President-elect Donald Trump said Tuesday he may tap his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, to help broker a peace agreement between the Israelis and Palestinians. Trump told a group of New York Times journalists that Kushner likely wouldn't take a formal role in possible Middle East peace talks, but could nonetheless serve as a player....

    Belgium has launched new security measures at Brussels Airport after suicide bombings there in March, taking inspiration from controls at Ben Gurion in Israel, among the most heavily protected airports in the world. Islamist suicide bombers killed 16 people and injured over 150 in the departure hall of Brussels Airport on March 22. The bombings were part of a coordinated assault on the Belgian capital’s transport system. Since then, the airport and Belgian government authorities have been working closely on a new security concept. Deputy Prime Minister and Security Minister Jan Jambon traveled to Israel this summer to view...
