    Pentagon documents released on Tuesday indicate that the 2017 budget requests of the US Defense Department include a total of $145.8 million for Israeli missile defense programs, a sharp drop in financial support amid a standoff over American military aid. The aid, meant for Israel's missile interceptor programs including the short-range Iron Dome, medium-range David's Sling and Arrow ballistic missile interceptor, includes far lower figures than those recorded the year before in 2016, reports Reuters. A total of $103.8 million for Israeli cooperative programs was listed in the 2017 budget request, in a serious cut from $267.7 million in 2016....

    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu toured on Tuesday the route of the fence being built along Israel's eastern border with Jordan. Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz, IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eizenkot and Southern District commander Eyal Zamir also participated in the tour along the route of the anticipated 30-kilometer fence. So far, five kilometers of the border fence have been erected. [...] The Prime Minister expressed his opinion that all of Israel should be surrounded by some sort of border fence. "At the end, in the State of Israel, as I see it, there will be a fence that spans it...

    Victims of Arab TerrorIf one wants to comprehend the cruel ideology of Amalek, of a society so steeped in collective evil that the Torah insists upon collective destruction, one need only look at the latest Arab atrocity in the southern community of Otniel. A fifteen year old Arab teenager entered the home of Dafna Meir (may G-d avenge her blood!) and stabbed her to death in front of her children. A fifteen-year-old monster, whose father celebrated his murderous act. Arab society breeds such evil. In all likelihood, Dafna's killer was groomed to murder Jews from conception. Yet another Arab with...

    US criticism of Israeli actions in the West Bank have drawn a furious response from Israel this week, including a former official dismissing the US ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro as a "little Jew boy." Aviv Bushinsky, a former adviser to Netanyahu and a frequent commentator on Israeli TV, said during a debate on Channel 2 Wednesday: "To put it bluntly, it was a statement typical of a little Jew boy," he said, using the derogatory Hebrew term "yehudoni" to describe the ambassador, who is in his mid-40s. Asked to respond to Bushinsky's remarks, the US embassy declined to comment....

    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met in his office privately on Tuesday for some 20 minutes with US ambassador Dan Shapiro, a day after Shapiro irked the premier by saying that at times it seemed Israel employed a double legal standard in the West Bank. The meeting took place prior to a meeting Netanyahu had with a delegation of four US Congressmen, whom Shapiro accompanied to the Prime Minister's office. Diplomatic officials stressed this point to indicate that Shapiro was not summoned to Netanyahu's office. The delegation included Republican congressman Doug Lamborn from Colorado, Paul Cook from California, Dennis Ross from...

Its goal is to bring the government to its knees to the point where Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu loses power or begs Obama and his advisers to shepherd Israel through a “peace process” in which Israel will renounce its rights to Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria. One component of this war is espionage. Last monthThe Wall Street Journal reported that Israel is a top target for American espionage. The other component...

In the West Point speech he gave in May 2014, IBD pointed out that the president denied the reality of the American global decline he has engineered. "Think about it," he told the assembled cadets. "Our military has no peer." It was disturbingly similar to Carter's pathetic 1979 "malaise" speech, in which Carter boasted of "the outward strength of America,...

At the time, President Obama was facing a wave of criticism from European leaders-such as French President Francois Hollande...

He spoke of these sentiments to Hitler when they met in Berlin on November 28, 1941.

    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is crazy like a fox. Netanyahus assertion on Tuesday before the World Zionist Congress that the founder of the Palestinian people, Haj Amin al-Husseini, convinced Adolf Hitler to eradicate rather than expel the Jews of Europe was an overstatement of Husseinis role. No, the Holocaust was not Husseinis idea. But he was a partner in perpetrating and promoting it. He also made it inevitable. As I detailed in my book The Israeli Solution: A One-State Plan for Peace in the Middle East, during the course of Husseinis meeting with Hitler in Berlin in November 1941, Hitler...

    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did something important last week he reminded the world that the Arab war against Israel is a continuation of the Nazis war against the Jews. The Palestinian Arabs, therefore, were prepared to cooperate with Germany with all their hearts and stood ready to participate in the war. The Arabs, the mufti predicted, could be more useful as allies than might be apparent at first glance. The objectives of my fight are clear, the muftis diary quotes Hitler as saying. Primarily, I am fighting the Jews without respite, and this fight includes the fight against the...

    The U.S. closely monitored Israels military bases and eavesdropped on secret communications in 2012, fearing its longtime ally might try to carry out a strike on Fordow, Irans most heavily fortified nuclear facility. Nerves frayed at the White House after senior officials learned Israeli aircraft had flown in and out of Iran in what some believed was a dry run for a commando raid on the site. Worried that Israel might ignite a regional war, the White House sent a second aircraft carrier to the region and readied attack aircraft, a senior U.S. official said, in case all hell broke...

    Arabs, rise as one man and fight for your sacred rights. Kill the Jews wherever you find them. This pleases God, history, and religion. This saves your honor. God is with you.

    BERLIN With Israelis and Palestinians caught in another widening cycle of bloodshed, Secretary of State John Kerry met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel in Berlin on Thursday and urged him to tone down the harsh language that American and European officials believe is fueling the violence. The message delivered on Thursday to Mr. Netanyahu, who claimed this week that a Muslim cleric had inspired the Holocaust, will be repeated in the coming days when Mr. Kerry meets the president of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, whose own comments Mr. Netanyahu and others have blamed for provoking attacks....

    Social media was abuzz on Wednesday following claims made by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that Adolf Hitler initially had no intention of massacring European Jewry. In a speech to delegates at the 37th World Zionist Congress in Jerusalem on Tuesday, the premier claimed that Hitler's original intentions were solely to expel the Jews. According to Netanyahu, the Fuhrer changed his mind at the insistence of the Palestinian Arab leader at the time, Haj Amin al-Husseini, who argued that the expulsion of the Jews would result in their arrival en masse to Palestine, which at the time was under British Mandatory...

    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sparked public uproar when on Wednesday he claimed that the Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, was the one who planted the idea of the extermination of European Jewry in Adolf Hitler's mind. The Nazi ruler, Netanyahu said, had no intention of killing the Jews, but only to expel them. In a speech before the World Zionist Congress in Jerusalem, Netanyahu described a meeting between Husseini and Hitler in November, 1941: "Hitler didn't want to exterminate the Jews at the time, he wanted to expel the Jew. And Haj Amin al-Husseini went to Hitler and said,...

    A concrete barrier being erected between an Arab neighborhood in East Jerusalem and an adjacent Jewish neighborhood was ordered demolished Monday by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu because it implied a de facto division of Jerusalem.The barrier was being put up between Jebel Mukaber, from which several Palestinian terrorists have emerged in recent weeks to attack Israelis in Jerusalem and elsewhere, and the neighborhood of Armon Hanatsiv, which has been subjected to frequent firebomb attacks by residents of the Arab neighborhood.Netanyahu made his decision after several cabinet members, including Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon, objected that the creation of a barrier could...
