    Around 60,000 Muslims took part in Friday prayers at Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem yesterday, and among them were 300 residents of Gaza aged 50 and above who were let in by Israel through the Erez crossing. Amid the large turnout Sheikh Ekrima Sa’id Sabri, chairperson of the Supreme Muslim Council and former Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and “Palestine” for the Palestinian Authority (PA), gave a sermon in which he called to ban all non-Muslims from the Temple Mount. Sabri in his sermon claimed that the Palestinian Arabs were expelled from their land by force and they...

    Two wars today are being waged against Jewish students on American university campuses. One is substantive, the other is institutional. The plight of the Jews at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island is emblematic of both. The purpose of the substantive war is to deny Jews their freedom as Jews. As the guarantor of Jewish freedom, Israel is the subject of a systematic, multidimensional assault, carried out everywhere on campuses. On a growing number of campuses in the United States, the only Jews who can safely express their views on Israel are those who champion Israel’s destruction. Those who support...

    The Palestinian U.N. ambassador said Friday his government wants the U.N. Security Council to vote on a resolution before the end of the year that would set November 2016 as the deadline for Israeli troops to withdraw from all Palestinian territories. Riyad Mansour said Friday that if the resolution is defeated—which is almost certain because of opposition from Israel’s closest ally the United States and others—the Palestinians have other options. …

    The exceptionally vicious condemnation of Israel with regard to housing construction in the Jewish neighborhoods of Jerusalem is not merely misguided, but also reflects irrational bias. Incidentally, this behavior also has many ominous parallels to the inhumane incarceration of Jonathan Pollard, despite pleas for the commutation of his sentence from all sectors of American society. The harsh outburst relates to a 2,600-unit housing project planned as an extension of an exclusively Jewish neighborhood adjacent to the suburb of Talpiot and Kibbutz Ramat Rahel, both within the Green Line. It incorporates primarily barren land on which Ethiopian and Russian immigrants had...

The delegation, bearing Israeli flags and passports, marched to the Bradford Town Hall. The move was organized by UKIP candidate Rabbi Shneur Odze, who took to Facebook to thank participants Sunday. "Well guys - we made it," Odze wrote. "Some Israelis from London, Mandy Blumenthal, I and others, went to Bradford Town Hall with flags, Israeli passports et al."

While Netanyahu did not publicly make this statement, a source in the Prime Minister's Office told reporters that Netanyahu believes there is no reason for the Palestinian state, if it is created, to be “mono-ethnic.” The source explained that the idea is a continuation of Netanyahu's statement in his speech at Davos, Switzerland, on Friday, in which he...

Several days ago the Israeli leftist author Moshe Sakal was booted from an academic conference in Marseilles at the request of Palestinian poet Najwan Darwish. The director of the conference, French-Jewish author Pierre Assouline, succumbed to the Arab pressure and said Sakal’s participation “was not crucial”. A year ago, Marseilles’ university was the site of another anti-Jewish boycott, when the septuagenarian Israeli novelist Esther Orner, who is also a Holocaust survivor, was banned from the...

The question arises what kind of a state will it be? In an effort to attract Western support, the Palestinian Authority claims that it will become another "secular democratic state."

    As you may have heard by now, San Francisco will be voting this November on whether or not to ban circumcision in the city. Defenders of the measure say it’s all about “human rights” and “protecting babies” from unnecessary procedures. But critics suspected there was something vaguely anti-Semitic about the whole proposal, since among Jews (and Muslims, as well) circumcising male babies is a religious duty, not just a mistaken medical procedure. Ban proponents insisted their proposal had nothing to do with Jews — really, it’s all about the rights of children. Well, any doubt that they were lying have...

When the Brazilians moved their capital from Rio de Janeiro to Brasilia, the U.S. Embassy followed suit.

    Historically, the religious standing of Jerusalem for Muslims waxed and waned with political circumstances; in a consistent and predictable cycle repeated six times through fourteen centuries, Muslims focused on the city when it served their needs and ignored it when it did not. This contrast was especially obvious during the past century. British rule over the city, 1917-48, galvanized a passion for Jerusalem that had been absent during the 400 years of Ottoman control. Throughout the Jordanian control of the walled city, 1948-67, however, Arabs largely ignored it. For example, Jordan's radio broadcast Friday prayers not from al-Aksa mosque but...

Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas described the withdrawal as an historic and joyful day for his people. But he told the BBC that some issues remained to be resolved. Mr Abbas said factors include Israel's insistence on determining who can enter...

    SANUR, West Bank -- Israeli forces armed with riot gear, saws and wire cutters evicted militant holdouts from two Jewish settlements Tuesday, completing Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's historic withdrawal from the Gaza Strip and a corner of the West Bank. The relative ease and lack of violence with which Israel pulled out of the 25 settlements in just a week was a stinging setback to Israel's ultra-nationalist movement, which for months had mounted vocal and dramatic resistance. Troops pass by a burned car as they enter the Jewish settlement of Homesh, in the northern West Bank Tuesday Aug. 23, 2005....

    JERUSALEM (Reuters) - In a few long days, Israeli forces have buried any idea that giving up settlements on land Palestinians want for a state would be impossibly traumatic. Some had predicted before Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's Gaza pullout that it could be so drawn out, painful and even violent that it might put off for years any removal of more West Bank enclaves seen by Palestinians as a prime obstacle to peace. There was certainly deep personal grief for the Jewish settlers forced from their homes of decades in Gaza and four of the 120 settlements in the occupied...

    The evil decree has been fulfilled. The unspeakable has happened. Like most of you, I have cried more these past two weeks than the last ten years combined. The question being asked by hundreds of thousands across the globe is; "What do we do now?" We understand that even though we are filled with pain, anguish, frustration and bitterness, we must go on. We must continue... but Where? What? and How? First of all, we must not allow ourselves to get depressed. Feelings such as pain and anguish can be overcome ("No Pain, No Gain") and used as positive motivation....

    I planned so many articles while I was in Shirat Hayam in Gush Katif, and drew so many conclusions: * about the conceptions that failed, * about the leadership in the field that fought for its own survival, instead of for Gush Katif, * and about rabbis who sent their students to perpetrate the crime of expulsion. There is much moral stocktaking to do now, and many issues must be clarified in-depth: * Who is really the enemy, and from what direction will he come to attack us? * Is it the right thing to continue to enlist in the...

    What the World Should Know about Israel's Withdrawal from the Gaza Strip By Barry Rubin August 22, 2005 To withdraw from the Gaza Strip has been the most painful decision made by an Israeli government and the most traumatic political event for the country's people in decades. Indeed, such a voluntary relinquishment of territory captured in an ongoing war is virtually unprecedented in history. The choice to take this step was made by Prime Minister Ariel Sharon from a belief that it would promote peace. Sharon's real positions since becoming prime minister in 2001 stand in sharp contrast to...

    US President George W Bush said overnight Israel's withdrawal from the Gaza Strip was "a courageous and painful step" that may help revive the so-called roadmap to Middle East peace. "Both Israelis and Palestinians have elected governments committed to peace and progress, and the way forward is clear: We're working for a return to the road map," he said in a speech to about 15,000 veterans. "Palestinian President (Mahmoud) Abbas has rejected violence and taken steps toward democratic reform. This past week, Prime Minister Sharon and the Israeli people took a courageous and painful step by beginning to remove settlements...

    RAFAH, Gaza Strip (AFP) - Palestinian leader Mahmud Abbas hailed Israel's historic Gaza withdrawal as the result of Palestinian sacrifice, as Israeli forces moved out some of the last remaining Jewish settlers. With the vast majority of the 21 Jewish settlements in Gaza evacuated, Abbas told a crowd of jubilant supporters that the ending of 38 years of Israeli occupation in the tiny territory was "the fruit of Palestinian sacrifice". "We want on this occasion to pay homage to our martyrs, to our prisoners, to our wounded and all those among our people who have made sacrifices," he said. The...

    Following the evacuation of the Gush Katif settlement in the Gaza strip earlier this week, the Israel Defense Force (IDF), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and various think tanks are preparing for 'the day after'. JID's Middle East correspondent reports from Jerusalem. It is clear that the withdrawal from the Gaza Strip will not reduce international pressure for further evacuation of other Israeli settlements, particularly in the West Bank. The key question is when this will take place and how the Israeli administration will respond. The assumption at the IDF Plans and Policy Directorate, headed by Major-General Yitzhak Harel, is...

    NEVE DEKALIM, Gaza Strip - Jewish settlers sobbed and screamed, some of them ripping their shirts in mourning, as Israeli troops dragged them from homes and synagogues Wednesday — the beginning of the end of Israel's 38-year occupation of the Gaza Strip. In the West Bank, a settler killed four Palestinian laborers in a shooting rampage, which Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon denounced as a twisted act of "Jewish terror" designed to stop the historic pullout. Despite the escalation of Israeli-Palestinian tensions, the eviction of die-hard settlers and their nationalist supporters who flooded into Gaza in recent weeks moved forward...

    NEVE DEKALIM, Gaza Strip, Aug 17 (MASNET & News Agencies) - The last Jewish settlers have been dragged kicking and screaming out of the Gaza Strip as Israel moved to end 38 years of occupation of the Palestinian territory through a forced evacuation. Backed by bulldozers, Israeli forces fanned out through the Mediterranean seafront territory on Wednesday, marching through makeshift barricades into seven settlements after hundreds of families defied a midnight deadline to leave voluntarily, reports Agence France-Presse (AFP). With emotions at fever pitch over implementation of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's Gaza withdrawal plan, a Jewish settler grabbed a gun...
