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.
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.
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.
A prominent Canadian Jewish group on Wednesday denounced a government-sponsored conference held at MacEwan University featuring a speaker who endorsed anti-Israel boycotts and promoted the work of a radical activist accused of antisemitism.
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.”

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.
…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.
The project comes after the government faced heavy criticism over Hamas’s use of tunnels in the 2014 Gaza war, with a state inquiry earlier this year accusing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and army top brass of having been unprepared for the threat.
The World Jewish Congress (WJC) and Honest Reporting on Monday hosted American journalist Hunter Stuart for a frank discussion on how his perception of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict shifted during his one and half years living in Jerusalem and reporting from the region.
Anti Israel gangs are planning on gathering at the Israeli Consulate in Toronto for a “Day of Rage”. They will be calling for the destruction of Israel.
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.
Jordanian police want to question the guard and have sealed off the area, but Israel says he has diplomatic immunity.
Israelis and Palestinians braced for further confrontations in Jerusalem as death toll rises in wake of new security crackdown.
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.
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.
