The few blocks adjacent to the new bus terminal are crawling with close to a thousand African refugees, with the lucky ones crammed into 8 dilapidated bomb-shelters while hundreds more sleep out in Lewinsky Park bordering Lewinsky, Har Zion, Levander, Matalon and Golomb streets.

The clinical trial, while "encouraging" and "promising," remains highly experimental, as all the patients have undergone a single injection with no untreated control group for comparison.

    I've just returned from an Israel Policy Forum leadership trip to Israel, and there was not much of the end-of-the-world rhetoric one hears so often at pro-Israel conclaves here. Take former prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu, for instance. Although here in the United States he sometimes sounds pessimistic about Israel's future, on his home turf he was bullish about Israel and particularly about its economy. (His one caveat was that all bets are off if suicide bombings resume). But all in all, Netanyahu, like his colleagues from across the political spectrum, was anything but apocalyptic about the future. As for the...

Iran supplied Hezbollah with solid-fuel, Zelzal-2 missiles with a 200-km range, but these are not very accurate, since they do not have a self-guidance system. The Zelzal-2 missiles, intended to strike broad targets such as communities and cities, are equipped with explosive warheads weighing up to 600 kilograms. The missiles are a later version of the Zelzal-1 missiles, which Iran first displayed in September 2005...

    Just last Friday, Iranian President Ahmadinejad warned that Israel's return to Gaza could lead to an "explosion" in the Islamic world that would target Israel and its supporters in the West. "They should not let things reach a point where an explosion occurs in the Islamic world," ... "If an explosion occurs, then it won't be limited to geographical boundaries. It will also burn all those who created [Israel] over the past 60 years," he said, implicitly referring to America and other Western nations who support Israel. Years from now, the kidnapping of Corporal Gilad Shalit will be regarded like...

    TEL AVIV Ė With Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert last week reluctantly sending large ground troop forces into the northern Gaza Strip to counter Palestinian missile fire from the territory, three rockets yesterday were launched by Palestinian terrorists on the other side of the country aimed at Jewish communities about 25 miles from Tel Aviv, the Galil Report has learned. Israeli news agencies have not yet published a story on the rocket attack, which took place in northern Samaria and opens a whole new front of missile targets in Judea and Samaria, territories Olmert is looking to evacuate in the...

    MOHAMMAD Sidique Khan, leader of the July 7 bombings, collaborated with two other British suicide bombers to recruit young Muslims for training camps in Afghanistan four years before he carried out his terror attacks in London. Fresh evidence has been uncovered linking Khan to Omar Sharif and Hanif Asif, who killed three people and injured 50 in 2003 with a suicide attack on a bar in Tel Aviv. According to a witness who has not yet spoken to the police, the men wanted to indoctrinate young Muslims and take them abroad for further training. Kursheed Fiaz, a businessman who runs...

    'I'm frustrated Israelis don't get the point' Ruthie Blum, THE JERUSALEM POST Jun. 8, 2006 In Israel last month to receive the "Guardian of Zion" award from Bar-Ilan University's Rennert Center for Jerusalem Studies, Middle East scholar and author Daniel Pipes pulled no punches. In his acceptance speech at the King David Hotel before a distinguished gathering of academics, politicians, business people and the media, Pipes did something that - while perhaps, par for his own lonely course of late - was unconventional to say the least. It certainly strayed from the pro forma podium fare that was the focus...

    Ben-Gurion Airport security stops vehicle carrying four Arab passengers just 100 meters before entrance to newly-constructed terminal 3 Ben-Gurion Airport security stopped Sunday a taxicab carrying four Arab passengers just 100 meters (about 330 feet) short of the entrance to the newly constructed terminal 3, just moments before Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was scheduled to leave for Europe. The taxi, which busted through the checkpoint at the airportís entrance at around 3:45 p.m., raised the alert of security personnel, who quickly set up another checkpoint near terminal 3. Guards aimed their weapons at the passengers as the taxi approached, ordered...

Abu Amin, a leader of the Islamic Jihad, which also took responsibility for the April 17 bombing in which Wultz was injured, told WND last night his terror group may target Americans...

    Since he was critically wounded in last week's suicide bombing at Tel Aviv's old Central Bus Station, the 16-year-old patient hospitalized in intensive care at the city's Ichilov Hospital has been identified in Israel only as the "American" victim. Yet in the seven days that have passed since he was hurt when a bomb exploded at a shwarma eatery where he was seated, thousands of people around the world have reportedly been praying for Haim Meir Naftali, son of Sara and Yekutiel - the Hebrew name of Daniel Wultz. A resident of Weston, Florida, Wultz came to Israel with his...

    Heroes In The Midst of Chaos Posted by Zachary | Thu, Apr 20, 2006, 3:54am Not necessarily in response to Chana's post, about the media bias, but somewhat related, I thought I might shed some light on some of the heroics of the people who were killed in the Tel Aviv bombing on Monday. The Jerusalem Post has a very sad story, but also a story of heroics and selflessness. Security guard Binyamin Hatufa's metal detector went off once the suicide bomber approached the outside of the restaurant prompting the bomber to detonate his explosives. Binyamin's '..body absorbed a large...

    Interim Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Monday that Israel knows "how to respond" to the deadly suicide bombing in Tel Aviv earlier in the day, while his spokesman said that Israel blamed Hamas for the attack. Nine people were killed and dozens were wounded when a teenaged terrorist from Islamic Jihad blew himself up outside a falafel restaurant in the Neve Sha'anan area of southern Tel Aviv. Hamas declined to condemn the bombing, calling the attack "self-defense." The U.S. said in response Monday that countries seeking to promote Middle East peace should note the praise offered by the Hamas-led Palestinian...

    A Palestinian suicide bomber blew himself up outside a fast-food restaurant in a bustling area of Tel Aviv during the Passover holiday Monday, killing eight other people and wounding at least 49 in the deadliest Palestinian attack in more than a year. The Palestinians' new Hamas leaders called the attack a legitimate response to Israeli "aggression." Israel said it held Hamas ultimately responsible ó even though a different militant group, Islamic Jihad, claimed responsibility ó and would respond "as necessary." "We shall, of course, continue to use all means at our disposal to prevent every other attempt," Israeli Prime Minister-designate...

    Alert hareidi-brigade soldiers suspected an Arab who arrived at their checkpoint, and ultimately found that he was in fact wearing a ten-kilogram explosive. The soldiers were manning a barrier near Bekaot in the Jordan Valley, east of Shechem, when an 18-year-old Arab arrived. Brigade Commander Lt.-Col. Yaron Frankel told Arutz-7's Kobi Finkler what happened: "The soldiers have been in this area for just a few days. The force identified the youth from about 30 meters away, wearing a coat that appeared too big on him. They became suspicious, and immediately began the regular procedure for arresting a suspect. They called...

    TEL AVIV, Israel -- They are singing a song for the Fuehrer in Tel Aviv, and laughing all the way through it. The Hebrew version of Mel Brooks's Broadway musical The Producers, based on his 1968 film, has become the hottest show in town and a symbol of Israelis' ability to laugh about issues linked to the Nazi Holocaust. "Mel Brooks once told me that we, Jews, sometimes avenge our worst enemies with humor," said Dan Almagor, who translated the play into Hebrew. The new musical, unprecedented in size and cost of its production, brings together Israel's leading actors and...
