I read a police report Saturday evening that placed the number of protesters at that night’s Tel Aviv demonstration at 100,000. They did not only threaten civil rights but the physical lives and safety of hundreds of thousands if not millions of Israelis. Yet for some reason, the Supreme Court, sans Justice Edmond Levy, decided that it was not its place to interfere. The Supreme Court proved otherwise when it abandoned the people of Gush Katif. They proved that their own politics supersede their supposed commitment to upholding the civil rights of all Israelis, making this argument against the reform null and void.
Will a freeze in ties between Jerusalem and Brussels once again be the norm? Dr. Emmanuel Navon, the CEO of the European Leadership Network-Israel (ELNET), doesn’t think that is necessarily the case. countries that are more pro-Israel won’t change their policies, but will be keeping a close eye on the new government, for sure.”It is too soon to say whether the E.U.-Israel Association Council will indeed proceed with the warming of ties. is also concerned about Israel because “most European countries expect Israel to have a clearer stance against Russia, to be completely onboard with supporting Ukraine. At the same time, he doesn’t think it’s necessarily time to be concerned about deteriorating ties between Jerusalem and Brussels.9 days ago JNS.org
This year, 31 Israelis have been murdered by Palestinian terrorists, the highest number of fatalities since 2008. The overwhelming majority were civilians—such as 84-year-old Shulamit Rahel Ovadia, who was bludgeoned to death by a Palestinian terrorist in September. Earlier this year, in response to the latest wave of terrorist attacks, members of the Knesset proposed the death penalty for terrorists. Nevertheless, its explanatory notes highlight the problem that jailed Palestinian terrorists enjoy almost a country-club lifestyle, according to testimony from former prisoners. Do Palestinian terrorists released from Israeli prisons come out regretting their actions?1 month ago JNS.org
Terrorist murderer Nasser Abu Hamid died in an Israeli hospital of cancer on Tuesday. Abu Hamid co-founded the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades during the Second Intifada. Fatah officials have accused Israel of negligence, despite the care that Abu Hamid received. Known as “the right hand” of senior Fatah terrorist Marwan Bargouti, himself serving five life sentences in an Israeli prison, Abu Hamid entered the Israel Prisons Service in April 2002 following his conviction. The Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades has over the past year returned to the headlines.1 month ago JNS.org
The vast majority of Arabs oppose normalization of relations with Israel, recently released poll results from the 2022 Arab Opinion Index show. This trend is supported by other surveys such as the Arab Barometer poll, which showed 13% support for normalization. The Arab Opinion Index is conducted by the Arab Center Washington DC and the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies in Doha, Qatar, and is the largest public opinion survey in the Arab world. The other Arab signatories to the Abraham Accords, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates, were absent from the survey. Nevertheless, experts believe that the overwhelming opposition to normalization with Israel in the Arab world will not hinder efforts towards normalization.12 days ago JNS.org
It was part of Yiddish New York, a festival now in its eighth year that offers live performances, online lectures, workshops and films. He said he became involved with Yiddish New York after 30 years of KlezKamp, the Klezmer music and Yiddish culture festival that ran from 1985 to 2015. “Uncle Moses (1932),” starring Maurice Schwartz and based on the novel of the same name, is one of the first Yiddish language films. There are more recordings of old Yiddish music and new compositions in the last 40 years than there were in the last 80. “After KlezCamp in the Catskills, we thought, ‘We can’t bear the thought of going without our Yiddish festival,” he told JNS.1 month ago JNS.org
The ADL, the American Jewish Committee and other liberal legacy groups are in agreement on this. They assert that the term is a dog whistle for Jews. “The Great Reset” is no conspiracy theoryFar from being solely the product of extremists, belief in “The Great Reset” is not a conspiracy theory. That’s why those who worry about real-life globalism are not the ones Jews should be anxious about. To the contrary, liberal institutions that promote the ideas of “The Great Reset” are the most potent force driving Jew-hatred in our time.1 month ago JNS.org
Also in the lowly sixth paragraph, CNN’s Salman and Gold quote Lapid: the “terrorist laboratory of Lions’ Den was severely damaged.”A comparison to coverage at other media outlets exposes the gravity of CNN’s strenuous efforts to bury the Lions’ Den, and the resulting false suggestion that raging Israeli soldiers are killing off peaceful Palestinian civilians. “The predawn raid targeted the Nablus-based militia known as the Lions’ Den, which emerged this year and does not answer to any of the established Palestinian factions. “Israel has blamed the Lions’ Den for a rise in shootings that it says are aimed at its troops and Jewish settlements in the West Bank, including one that killed a soldier this month. Five Palestinians were killed and 20 were wounded, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.”The Times and AP reasonably carried out their journalistic responsibilities in covering the Lion’s Den, the lead player in yesterday’s story. CNN, for its part, lent a protective hand to the Lions’ Den, as diligently as a vigilant lioness watching over her charges.3 months ago JNS.org
