In a series of interviews with Israeli media outlets, Manelis stressed that the IDF will not allow for such attacks to go unanswered. “Whoever carries out acts of terror should know they will face consequences,” he said. Manelis added that the IDF carried out “the most extensive attack in Gaza since Operation Protective Edge” – the 2014 military conflict between Israel and Hamas – and said the attack “will continue to grow as much as…

In an incredible anti-Semitic tirade, Israel’s supposedly moderate peace partner, Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, blamed the Jews for their own near-annihilation in the Nazi Holocaust. In a rambling address to the Palestinian National Council in Ramallah on Monday, Abbas insisted that the Holocaust was the result not of Nazi anti-Semitism, but rather the Jews’ “social behavior, [charging] interest, and financial matters.” It was classic anti-Semitism, through and through. Abbas’ goal was to convince his listeners that the Jewish people have no right to live in the Holy Land, and, apparently, no right to live at all. US Ambassador to Israel…

The Shurat Hadin Israel Law Center is seeking International Criminal Court action against Hamas over the terrorist group’s use of children as human shields in the riots that have taken place over the past month on the Israel-Gaza Strip border. The lawsuit is based on a clause in the Rome Statute, the treaty that established the ICC’s work, which says that recruiting children under the age of 15 to any militant organization is a war crime. The suit names former Hamas chief Khaled Mashaal, current deputy leader Saleh al-Arouri, and moneyman Zahar Jabarin as guilty of war crimes, saying that as all…

In May of 1948, Arab leaders told the Arabs of then, “Palestine,” that they will have a war with the “New” Nation of Israel. They encouraged the Arabs to leave their homes until after the war, then they could return again.  Israel offered…

According to the report, the call addressed “recent developments in the Middle East” and Trump “reiterated the commitment of the United States to Israel’s security.” The two leaders also “agreed to continue their close coordination on countering Iran’s malign influence and destabilizing activities.” US President Donald Trump, who has called the 2015 Iran deal “the worst deal ever negotiated,” recently extended a waiver on nuclear sanctions that were imposed on Iran.
