    The New Right party said on Thursday night, "The results that were published are not final, and we continue to fight. We expect the media to show some more seriousness in its reports.” "Over the course of the day, a war room was established at party headquarters that gathered about 1,000 failures and flaws in the voting process. At the beginning of the week we will receive the protocols and our hundreds of volunteers will compare them to the computerized results.” "We will also address all the extreme irregularities discovered in the counting of the double envelopes. We will accept...

    The Likud is projected to gain one mandate over the initial post-election vote count, pushing it from 35 to 36 seats, after the counting of special ballots was completed Thursday, Israeli media outlets reported Thursday afternoon. Special ballots, which make up some five percent of the nearly 4.3 million votes cast in Tuesday’s election, include the votes of Israeli soldiers stationed at bases across the country, prisoners in jails and detention facilities, voters in Israeli hospitals, and members of the Foreign Ministry overseas service. The preliminary results of the full county of all ballots cast in the election show the...

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on Thursday, bringing closure to a family of a deceased Israeli soldier. The Russians announced they had located the body of Israel Defense Forces soldier Zachary Baumel, who disappeared 37 years ago at the battle of Sultan Yacoub in Lebanon. Baumel was born in New York City but grew up in Jerusalem. He was one of three IDF soldiers whose bodies were found in the aftermath of the tank battle. "It is important that his family can place a wreath on his grave," Putin said.

    Left-wing Israeli TV broadcasters had stars in their eyes last night at 10 when the initial election results came in. They told us breathlessly that former chief of staff Benny Gantz’s Blue and White Party—the challenger to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s center-right coalition—had done phenomenally well and the elections and the leadership of the country were up for grabs. But by Wednesday morning, with 97 percent of the votes counted, the same broadcasters had tired, glum faces. It turned out that Netanyahu—a providential leader who has done more than any other individual to turn 21st-century Israel into a phenomenal success...

    A general view shows the Israeli settlement of Beitar Illit in the Israeli-occupied West Bank April 7, 2019. REUTERS/Ronen Zvulun Palestinians voiced alarm while Israelis weighed the gravity on Sunday of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s sudden election promise to annex Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank.Some Israeli commentators saw the right-wing leader’s pledge on Saturday, as Tuesday’s national ballot approaches, as mainly a bid to siphon votes from ultranationalist rivals long advocating annexation. But after years of resisting far-right calls to formally put West Bank land captured in the 1967 Middle East war under permanent Israeli hold, Netanyahu...

    Netanyahu, who was in the U.S. capital to meet President Trump and give a since-scuttled speech to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee conference, called the Monday morning rocket launch in the agricultural community of Mishmeret a “criminal attack” and vowed to strike back hard. "There has been a criminal attack on the State of Israel and we will respond forcefully," he said. "In a few hours, I will meet with President Trump. I will return to Israel immediately afterward." In addition to the canceled AIPAC address, Netanyahu also scrapped meetings with congressional leaders.

    Christians in jeopardy: Who cares? Exclusive: Barbara Simpson blasts hypocrisy of those who won't lift a finger to help To me, the most appalling refusal to help comes from the Vatican and Pope Frances – who has said nothing directly, allowing the Vatican Secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, to do the talking. He says there is no diplomatic activity, that the Vatican is not working to arrange an asylum for Bibi and her family, and that “it’s an issue inside Pakistan. I hope it can be resolved in the best way.”

    JERUSALEM—Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will easily win a snap election set for April 9, according to an opinion poll on Dec. 25, the first to be published since the ballot was announced. Netanyahu announced the early election on Dec. 24, appealing directly to voters for a fresh political mandate that could help him weather possible charges in corruption investigations. An election had not been due until November 2019. The survey, published in Israel’s Maariv newspaper, showed Netanyahu’s Likud party winning 30 of parliament’s 120 seats, the same number it took in the last election in 2015, and a governing...

    Italian Priest: Jesus Christ was Like Asia Bibi, Not an Illegal Migrant Many progressive and left-wing figures, including head of the Roman Catholic church Pope Francis, have compared the events surrounding the birth of Christ to those of illegal migrants entering Europe today.But Father Morselli said he rejected the idea, explaining that “Christ was a persecuted person, more like Asia Bibi or Catholics betrayed and sold off to the Chinese government,” Il Giornale reports.When asked about nativity scenes that featured migrant boats being set up around Italy, Father Morselli said: “For the anti-Christian creed, religion no longer concerns Jesus in himself, as...

    Have Platitudes from the Vatican Turned Deadly? Throughout this month of December, emphasis from the Vatican has been placed on migration and immigrant rights at a near frenzied level. Pope Francis addressed the issue of mass migration almost every chance he had last week, especially his interest in and support of the U.N.’s vote for a “Global Compact for Immigration.”Speaking to ten new ambassadors on December 13, he said, “No effective humanitarian solution to that pressing global issue (of mass migration) can ignore our moral responsibility, with due regard for the common good, to welcome, protect, promote and integrate those...

    After years of struggle in the courts, Aasiya Noreen "Asia" Bibi — a Catholic mother of five — was acquited of charges of blasphemy in the Pakistan Supreme Court on Oct. 31. Islamic fundamentalists all over Pakistan immediately began protesting the acquittal. Many of the protesters demanded Bibi's death for her alleged blasphemy against the prophet Mohammad. Since her acquittal, Bibi and her family have lived in fear for their lives. Many countries, such as Italy and Canada, have considered offering asylum to Bibi and her family members. Efforts to help the persecuted Catholic family have also been proposed in...

From Antonio Socci's Facebook December 14, 2018 Questioned by journalists, the Vatican Secretary of State, Cardinal Parolin (Bergoglio’s right-hand man) declared that presently there is no diplomatic activity involving the Holy See to bring Asia Bibi and her family to safety.  He said verbatim: “It’s an internal question that regards Pakistan, I hope it will be resolved in the best ways possible”. An internal question that regards Pakistan? The cynicism of the Bergoglians towards persecuted Christians is horrifying!                                  ...

    The chief Palestinian Authority (PA) negotiator Saeb Erekat claimed that PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas is willing to meet Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu “anywhere in the world”. “I challenge Mr. Netanyahu [to meet Abbas], officially. He can choose any country, any country on earth. Moscow, Beijing, London, Berlin,” said Erekat, secretary-general of the Palestine Liberation Organization’s (PLO) Executive Committee, in an interview with German broadcaster Deutsche Welle. “He will meet him. This is a challenge, a declared challenge,” he added. The Israel- PA peace process has been frozen since 2014, when Abbas breached conditions of talks that were ongoing at the...

In addition, against Sara Netanyahu, an evidentiary basis has formed for an indictment over offenses of taking bribes (collectively), fraud and breach of...

    Kulanu party leader Moshe Kahlon told Prime Minister Netanyahu that he will not accept Jewish Home Chairman Naftali Bennett serving as defense minister, following the resignation of current defense minister, Avigdor Liberman. On Wednesday, Bennett issued an ultimatum to the Prime Minister, saying his Jewish Home faction will quit the coalition if he is not appointed defense minister. If Bennett's ultimatum holds, Kahlon's veto likely signals that early elections are on the way. "Bennett doesn't have it coming to get the Defense Ministry portfolio. I'm opposed to it," Kahlon told Netanyahu. Bennett told confidants in response that he will not...
