In a speech before the PLO Executive Committee in Ramallah on September 15, Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas repeated the old libel that Israel was planning to establish special Jewish prayer zones inside the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Abbas claimed that Israel was seeking to copy the example of the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron, where Jews and Muslims pray in different sections.
Abbas did not say what his lie was based on. He also did provide any evidence of Israel’s ostensible plot against the Al-Aqsa Mosque. He said, nevertheless, that the Palestinians, together with Jordan, were planning to bring this issue before the International Criminal Court and the International Court of Justice.
Gabi Vaknin, one of the three civilians on scene at today’s stabbing attack in Gush Etzion who shot at the attacker, described the incident: “I looked to the right, saw the stabber, saw the one who was stabbed. The stabbed one yelled, ‘terrorist attack, terrorist attack!’. The stabber yelled in Arabic and started running towards the shopping center’s entrance. I ran adjacent to them – on the road, not on the sidewalk – got line-of-sight to allow me a clean shot, aimed towards his body mass, and I shot.
“Before me, the stabbed man, who also ran after the terrorist, took a shot – even before me, possibly – the security guard also got off a shot, there were three of us shooting.

After decades of accepting the idea that Palestinians deserve American financial assistance without offering anything in return, President Trump has finally said, “Enough.” Fed up with their lies and obduracy, he decided the Palestinians are not entitled to US taxpayer dollars to pay terrorists, support phony refugees, and line the pockets of corrupt leaders who enrich themselves, their families, and their cronies.
Cutting aid to UNRWA was long overdue because UNRWA is a poster child for the fraudulence of Palestinian claims.
Twenty-five years after Oslo, the balance sheet is more like what in 2003 the historian Efraim Karsh called the start of the “Oslo war”. In this war, he wrote, Israel had conceded from the beginning a major victory to its worst enemies by giving them a respectability they did not deserve, and thus placed itself in a losing position from which it never fully recovered.

“Women’s Studies.” This is right up there with Israeli soldiers don’t rape Palestinian women because RACIST!
Dr. Sharona Aharoni-Goldenberg, an expert on the struggle against BDS, says that the Trump administration’s decision, according to which anti-Israel activity on college campuses will be defined as anti-Semitism, is a turning point in the fight against anti-Semitic activity on campuses.
“This is a very important decision. The BDS movement today, which really appears to be activated by an invisible hand – and the feeling is that it is funded by totalitarian elements – works to remove Jews from academia. There is real activity against Israeli lecturers, regardless of their position or opinion, but rather because they are Israelis,” Aharoni-Goldenberg said in an interview with Israel Hayom.
UCLA has agreed to host the annual conference for Students for Justice in Palestine, a radical student group that leads much of the anti-Israel campus activity at universities across the country, the Jewish Journal reports.
UCLA has been under pressure to back out of hosting the group given its history of disrupting Jewish events on campus and promoting movements such as the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaign, which aims to destroy Israel through economic warfare.
CNN reports that “the United States is ending all funding to the United Nations agency tasked with supporting Palestinian refugees, the U.S. State Department said Friday, describing the body as ‘irredeemably flawed.’”
Indeed it is, and this Trump administration move is courageous and welcome.
Iran has ‘infiltrated’ the Labour party claims party’s pro-Israel group leader and fierce Corbyn critic after journalist casts ballot against her in constituency no-confidence vote and films the meeting for banned state broadcaster
A moderate Labour MP who lost a confidence motion in her constituency has accused Iran of ‘infiltrating’ the party after a journalist from the country’s state broadcaster filmed the meeting and took part in the vote.
Joan Ryan, a leading critic of Jeremy Corbyn’s failure to tackle the anti-Semitism crisis, lost the confidence motion by just two votes at a party meeting in Enfield, north London.
Press TV reporter Roshan Salih, who reportedly joined the constituency party several months ago, filmed the meeting for the Iranian channel.
…In reality, the Palestinians have one main message for the US administration: We hate you and incite against you, but we fully expect that you will continue providing us with cash, to the tune of billions of dollars. And, when you do try to help us, we reserve the right to spit in your face.
Israel’s defense chief has warned that his country will seek to “destroy any Iranian military presence” in Syria, where Tehran has intervened to prop up its ally President Bashar al-Assad in a war that has lasted more than seven-years.
Israel has alleged that Iran plans to establish a permanent, broad military foothold in Syria, including advanced missile factories as well as air and naval bases. Tehran rejects the claim.
TEL AVIV – The U.S. has “thrown more than $10 billion” in aid to the Palestinians, but despite that we are no closer to peace, the U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman said Tuesday, adding that the Palestinian Authority has used large sums of that money for terrorist payments.
Friedman’s scathing remarks were in response to backlash over his country’s decision to stop all funding to the UN’s Palestinian refugee agency, UNRWA.
Gaza’s terror head Yahya Sinwar says weekly violent marches were used to divert pressure onto Israel and prevent an ‘internal explosion’ after reconciliation efforts with Fatah were ‘sabotaged’; Sinwar also clarifies no ceasefire agreement reached with Israel.
