    Israel's Annexation Plan of the Jordan Valley European thinking, Abdullah’s reaction, and Israel’s rights. Thu May 28, 2020 Joseph Puder The new Israeli government is considering extending Israeli law and sovereignty to the Jordan Valley, which is within area C of the Oslo Accords. The Accords, which gave Israel both military and administrative control in the area, also contains a large bloc of Jewish-Israeli communities. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, on a short visit to Israel (April 22, 2020) told reporters: “As for annexation of the (Jordan Valley) West Bank, the Israelis will ultimately make those decisions.” He added,...

    Iran’s Supreme Leader calls for a “final solution” to Israel and the “liberation of Palestine.” This past Friday, Israelis of all backgrounds and political persuasions celebrated Jerusalem Day, which commemorates Israel’s liberation of the eastern part of the city during the Six Day War of 1967. While Israelis were celebrating and reflecting on their admirable achievements, it was an entirely different affair in the Islamic Republic of Iran where Iranian authorities organized and orchestrated anti-Israel demonstrations in commemoration of Quds Day. The hateful rallies came with all the expected banalities including the requisite burning of Israeli and American flags and...

    Turkish president issues threat over new government’s plans to apply sovereignty, calls Jerusalem a ‘red line’ for world’s Muslims Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has threatened Israel over its new government’s plan to annex portions of the West Bank. “We are witnessing a new plan of occupation and annexation by Israel that threatens Palestinian sovereignty and is contrary to international law,” Erdogan said in a video address late Sunday for the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr. “We won’t allow the transfer of Palestinian land to anyone.” “Turkey is the only voice defending the Palestinians today,” Erdogan said in a televised...

    Abbas Cuts Off His Nose to Spite His Face MAY 26, 2020 10:00 AM BY HUGH FITZGERALD Mahmoud Abbas has for years threatened repeatedly to cut off security coordination with Israel, and even to rip up entirely the Oslo Accords. He’s huffed and puffed, but until now, he’s never followed through. Now he has finally gone and done it. He’s decided to punish Israel in advance for its plan to extend its sovereignty over both the Jordan Valley and Jewish settlements throughout the West Bank. In a speech in Ramallah on May 18, Abbas declared that “the Palestine Liberation Organization...

    It must be defused for Israel to secure its national interests. There is a landmine on the road to Israeli sovereignty over parts of Judea and Samaria. It must be defused before it blows up Israel’s efforts to secure its national interests and takes President Donald Trump’s peace plan, and U.S.-Israel relations along with it. The landmine is not an actual explosive charge but the clique of unelected lawyers at the top of Israel’s legal system. Member of the clique have arrogated to themselves the power of the government to advance their radical, legally unsupported political views about Judea and...

    China and one-fifth of respondents in England agree, according to recent reports. It’s the old reliable, blame ‘em for everything group. That’s right: The Jews! It was only a matter of time. Via the Jerusalem Post: One in five English people believe that Jews created COVID-19 to collapse the economy for financial gain, a newly-released study by a team of researchers at the University of Oxford has revealed. The finding came as part of a wider survey in attitudes toward the virus and the measures taken to prevent its spread, which found that there was a strong undercurrent of mistrust over...

    Israel will not miss a “historic opportunity” to extend its sovereignty to parts of the West Bank, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday, calling the move one of his new government’s top tasks. Palestinians consider such a step as illegal annexation of occupied land they seek for a future state. Last week, they declared an end to security cooperation with Israel and its ally, the United States, in protest at the territorial plan. Netanyahu has pledged to put Jewish settlements and the Jordan Valley in the West Bank under Israeli sovereignty. He has set July 1 as a starting...

    It's not clear why ancient people dug up these chambers, but evidence suggests they used them in everyday life. Co-director of the excavation Barak Monnickendam-Givon standing in the subterranean chambers. (Image: © Yaniv Berman-Israwl Antiquities Authority) Archaeologists recently uncovered three ancient subterranean chambers carved in the bedrock beneath the Western Wall plaza in Jerusalem. The 2,000-year-old chambers, consisting of an open courtyard and two rooms, were carved on top of one another and connected by hewn staircases. Inside the chambers, archaeologists discovered clay cooking vessels, cores of oil lamps, a stone mug and a piece of a qalal, or a...

    Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, launched into a lengthy anti-Israel diatribe on Twitter Friday as he marked Quds Day, a holiday held in Iran toward the end of the month of Ramadan meant to express support for Palestinians and opposition to Israel's existence. The leader, in 25-unthreaded tweets, compared Israel to a "cancerous tumor" and the coronavirus, as he called for the nation to be "uprooted and destroyed." The ayatollah, who wields complete control over the regime, made similar comments Friday in an in-person speech, according to the Times of Israel "Some argue that the Zionist regime is a...

    Palestinians say sending medical aid through Tel Aviv is a 'cover for normalisation' of ties with Israel. The Palestinian Authority (PA) has rejected an aid shipment from the United Arab Emirates, according to the Palestinian health minister. In a news conference on Thursday, Mai Kaila said her country refused to receive the medical aid as the Emirati side ignored to coordinate with them. "The UAE has not coordinated with us regarding the medical aid, and we reject to receive it without coordination," said the minister. "We are a sovereign country, and they should have coordinated with us first." Earlier on...

    TEL AVIV – Former Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters sang that Palestinians will “take back the land, from the Jordan river to the sea,” a battle cry routinely used by terrorists that ultimately calls for the elimination of Israel. Together with anti-Israel far-left British filmmaker Ken Loach, Waters appeared at the UK Palestine Solidarity Campaign’s (PSC) Nakba Day 2020 event, where he claimed that “the Israel lobby and the Israeli government and the Israeli special whatever they are called… [are] trying so hard to destroy the voices of support [for Palestinians],” the UK’s Jewish Chronicle reported. The Palestinian “Nakba” commemorates...

    The Iranian government released a profoundly anti-Semitic poster about Palestinian liberation that invoked Nazi Germany’s “final solution” plan for European Jews. Ali Khamenei, the supreme leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran, published a poster on Tuesday that reads “Palestine will be free. The final solution: Resistance until referendum.” Khamenei’s office released the image to celebrate Quds Day, an annual rally in Iran that calls for the destruction of Israel, according to The Jerusalem Post. The poster — which was displayed in English, Arabic and Farsi — depicts a conquered Jerusalem alongside the late Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corp Quds Force...

    Liberal Jewish Opposition to Israel’s Sovereignty is Cowardly The Saudis stopped hating Israel. Wouldn’t it be nice if liberal Jews did too? Wed May 20, 2020 Daniel Greenfield 2 Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism. The House of Saud, the oldest enemies of an independent free Jewish state, have at least temporarily abandoned their project to destroy it by replacing it with the Islamic terrorist colony of ‘Palestine’. That’s more than you can say for liberal Jews. It’s a sad day when...

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas ended "all agreements" including security coordination with Israel and the United States on Tuesday, in response to Israel's plans to annex parts of occupied West Bank, which he said would ruin chances for peace in Mideast. Abbas said the Palestinian government was "absolved, as of today, of all the agreements and understandings with the American and Israeli governments and of...

    The French government issued a strongly-worded statement Tuesday urging Israel not to apply sovereignty in Judea and Samaria. The statement calls on Prime Minister Netanyahu and alternate Prime Minister Gantz not to "annex", as the move "will have significant implications for Israel's relations with the EU." The French foreign ministry is aligning with the European foreign policy chief, Josep Borrell, who is regarded as the most senior official in Europe who actively opposes the move. "We support the announcement by EU Foreign Minister Borrrell that annexation would be in violation of international law, and would not proceed without implications for...

With the opening of air travel from these countries, there is a 20% increase in immigration requests. This is in addition to the existing load after a two-month delay in immigrant flights and the granting of immigration visas stemming from the closure of the various government offices involved. Greeting a recent flight of 111 new immigrants from Ukraine, Immigration Minister Pnina Tamano-Shata greeted said, "Every...
