Israel hacked Kaspersky, then tipped the NSA that its tools had been breached

In 2015, Israeli government hackers saw something suspicious in the computers of a Moscow-based cybersecurity firm: hacking tools that could only have come from the National Security Agency.

Israel notified the NSA, where alarmed officials immediately began a hunt for the breach, according to people familiar with the matter, who said an investigation by the agency revealed that the tools were in the possession of the Russian government.

Norwegians now ‘experiencing the same fear as Israelis’ says minister

One of the most popular politicians in Norway and member of the conservative-liberal Progress Party, Listhaug added that the nations of Europe “and their citizens need to understand the situation in Israel better, because of the terror attacks in Israel.”

Norwegian conservative historian Hanne Nabintu Herland called her country “the most anti-Semitic in the West,” but now it seems that the people of Norway are changing their views.

State Department Waging “Open War” on White House

The U.S. State Department has backed away from a demand that Israel return $75 million in military aid which was allocated to it by the U.S. Congress.

The repayment demand, championed by U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, was described as an underhanded attempt by the State Department to derail a campaign pledge by U.S. President Donald J. Trump to improve relations with the Jewish state.

The dispute is the just the latest example of what appears to be a growing power struggle between the State Department and the White House over the future direction of American foreign policy.

Gen. McMaster Sparked a Row With the Israeli Delegation at a White House Meeting on Hezbollah

During the week of August 27, an Israeli delegation met with members of the National Security Council (NSC) at the White House to discuss the current threat to Israel by the terror group Hezbollah.

Israel believes this threat is currently dire. This meeting preceded a two-week long Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) exercise to rehearse for possible war with Hezbollah. The Jerusalem Post described this exercise, which commenced on September 4 and is ongoing, as the IDF’s largest in 20 years.

Hezbollah has been a U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization since 1997. However, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster reportedly brought NSC Senior Director on Counter-Terrorism Mustafa Javed Ali to the White House meeting with Israel. Ali, a McMaster appointee, is described by a senior administration source as being “opposed to Hezbollah’s designation as a terrorist organization.”

Middle Israel: The Arab Herzl

1st Zionist Congress, Basel Switzerland

In the era of “isms,” Zionism has defeated all the rest. Maoism, Leninism, Stalinism, Trotskyism, Nasserism and fascism have all come and gone, having delivered their believers calamity and despair. The current totalitarianism, fundamentalism, has served its followers no better and will ultimately end up similarly extinct.

Marxism has been reduced from dream to nightmare, especially where it was tried. Socialism, after having floored healthy economies, has been elbowed by capitalism which, after brief universal applause, is now something between a moral monstrosity and an aristocratic plot.

Even pacifism, fashionable a century ago when war was the business of idiots, lost currency once the following war became the business of madmen.

Only Theodor Herzl’s ism has bucked the trend, remaining fresh, relevant, and a very big success 120 years after its launch.

Combating 21st century terror: What Europe can learn from Israel

…In a democratic society based on liberal values it is impossible to stop every madman that wishes us harm. Sadiq Khan was criticised but right when he said that the threat of terror attacks was now ‘part and parcel of living in a big city’. If you want total security move to North Korea.

Recent terror ‘successes’, however, are more to do with state failings than terrorist brilliance. In too many countries counter-terrorism measures are still insufficient. And the reason is simple: We are fighting 21st century terrorism with 20th century methods. Nonetheless, more can, and must, be done. One country, above all, has the method and the solution: Israel.

Christians of Bethlehem and Jerusalem join Muslims in protest against Israeli security measures

These Christians have apparently never heard or understood the expression, “First the Saturday people, then the Sunday people.” Or perhaps they are hoping that Muslims have forgotten it, or will be compelled to set it aside by their gestures of solidarity. Dhimmi Christians have long sided with Muslims against Jews, in the vain hope that they would thereby win some favor with their masters. But Islamic law mandates the subjugation of both Jews and Christians. No expressions of solidarity will ever mitigate that.

Israeli Islamic Leader Kamal Khatib on Jazeera TV: Israel Inserted Chemical Substances into Al-Aqsa Mosque Wall to Cause Corrosion

In a July 16 interview with Qatar’s Al-Jazeera TV network, Sheikh Kamal Khatib, the deputy head of the Islamic Movement in Israel, said that Israel has been injecting chemical substances into the walls of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in order to cause its corrosion. Sheikh Khatib explained that these substances have a delayed effect, enabling Israel to claim that the cracks and fissures in the mosque structure are the working of nature.

“Palestinian” Muslim stabbing spree leaves two Israelis dead, one wounded

The “Palestinian” territories have a culture of hatred and the glorification of violence, all in the name of Islam and in accord with its teachings. This is likely another manifestation of the rage that “Palestinian” leaders are exhorting their people to work up over the Israelis’ decision to put metal detectors at the Temple Mount. Resisting jihad terror is portrayed as an unpardonable insult, and more jihad terror ensues.
