Simultaneous translation into Hebrew will be available.

This event is a full day conference dedicated to presenting the ultimate alternate solution of the Arab/Jewish conflict including both the pros and the cons.

The beauty of the solution is that it doesn’t depend on the consent or agreement of the PA or King Abdullah.

A stellar group of speakers has been assembled, including leading journalists and academics, Knesset Members, Pslrdyinians and a number of Arabs who are part of the Jordan Opposition Coalition and who hope to be part of the next government in Jordan.

In essence this solution takes its inspiration from the Feisal/Weizmann agreement of 1918.  It calls for Jordan to be the Arab state and Israel to the Jordan River, to be the state of the Jews. And it calls for complete normalization between the two and considerable economic cooperation.

Angela Merkel’s Pyrrhic Victory  

By Alex Alexiev, AMERICAN THINKER

As expected, Angela Merkel has convincingly won her fourth term as chancellor of Germany and unofficial, but no less real, leader of the European Union.  The mainstream media will again erupt into an orgy of adulation for the new leader of the free world; the slayer of populism; and last, but most, the anti-Trump.  While the adulation-cum-E.U. triumphalism is a given, few will notice that it is taking place as both Merkel and the E.U. enter a period that will bring ruin to Merkel’s reputation and the fantasy of an E.U. super-state that will finally prove the superiority of Europe over Trump’s America.  For her reputation is built on the fake assumptions of the European socio-political model, which is doomed.

The inconvenient Kurds

Except for the State of Israel and the Kingdom of Jordan, there isn’t one state in Western Asia that is viable inside its present borders at a 20-year horizon. All the powers with interests in the region want to kick the problem down the road, and that is why the whole world (excepting Israel) wants to abort an independence referendum to be held by Iraq’s eight million Kurds on Sept. 25. If Iraq’s Kurds try to convert the autonomous zone they have ruled for a quarter of a century into a fully independent state, the Iraqi state probably will collapse, Turkey likely will invade northern Iraq and Syria, and Iran will join Turkey in military operations against Kurdish-led forces in Iraq.

JPOST says Israel’s population explosion is a bad thing  

By Alon Tal, JPOST

Israelis live in the most crowded country in the developed world. But few understand the cumulative price they pay now that quantity of life has begun to degrade quality of life.

On August 14, the Israel National Economic Council issued a seemingly banal, technical publication called “Regional Population Scenarios for the State of Israel During the Years 2015-2040.” The local press paid little attention to the report even though its findings should have troubled anyone who cares about the Land of Israel and the future of the Third Jewish Commonwealth. Distilled to its essence, the report’s three main findings are: Israel’s population is set to expand by 5 million people over the next 23 years; the number of elderly citizens will double; and the percentage of Haredi (ultra-Orthodox) Israelis will increase from 11% to 20%.

NGO: Saudi textbooks “teaching hatred” of Jews and other faiths  

“After years of reform promises there is apparently still little room for tolerance in the country’s schools.”

By Ben Lynfield, JPOST


Saudi Arabian secondary school pupils are taught that the day of resurrection will not come until Muslims kill Jews, Human Rights Watch found during a recent review of textbooks that also revealed hateful and disparaging references to Christians, Shi’ites and Sufism.

“As early as first grade, students in Saudi schools are being taught hatred toward all those perceived to be of a different faith or school of thought. The lessons in hate are reinforced with each following year,” Sarah Leah Whitson, Middle East director for Human Rights Watch, said in a press release last week. The New York-based group reviewed 45 Saudi textbooks and student work books produced by the Education Ministry for the primary, middle and secondary education levels.

US pushing Israel to hold off on new construction?  

Migron expellees say plan to approve new homes for them after Succot ‘too little, too late.’

By Nitsan Keidar, INN

Shai Alon, head of the Beit El Council, responded to the report on Arutz Sheva that thousands of housing units planned for Israeli towns across Judea and Samaria will be approved next month following the Sukkot holiday.

The meeting of the Supreme Planning Council was scheduled to convene this week, Alon said, but was postponed due the White House’s efforts to jump-start negotiations with the Palestinian Authority.

“We all expect the marketing of the 300 housing units to be approved,” Alon said. “The land is ready, there are already appeals from young couples who want to live in the council. Everything is ready and we are waiting only for the approval of these housing units.”

State footdragging as PA constructs thousands of illegal homes  

State presents position late, hearing on Arab outpost demolition postponed. Court: ‘With better planning, State could have met timetable.’

By Mordechai Sones, INN

The hearing on the petition filed by the Jerusalem Belt Forum (Forum Otef Yerushalayim) to evacuate the illegal Arab outpost Khan al-Ahmar and an Italian-built school next to Kfar Adumim was postponed today after having been postponed six months ago.

The postponement was accepted by the High Court despite the fact that the Court only recently allowed a postponement until September 19, 2017.

GoFundMe Removes Account of Woman Fundraising Anti-Sharia Tour, Conservative Web Show  

By Charlie Nash, BREITBART

GoFundMe has reportedly removed the account of the Glazov Gang, who were raising funds for an anti-Sharia law tour and their conservative web show.

According to a blog post made by The Glazov Gang, GoFundMe “suspended The Glazov Gang campaign without any notice or explanation, nor have they responded to any queries.”

“This conduct by GoFundMe is part of its larger effort to shut down the efforts of Anni Cyrus, the producer of The Glazov Gang,” they continued, adding, “Recently, also with no notice or explanation, GoFundMe deleted Anni’s entire account while she was raising funds for her anti-Sharia tour — wiping out all of her donor history and four open campaigns, one of which was The Glazov Gang campaign.”

Has the Trump Program been exposed to a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict?  

Mudar Zahran. This article is based on a fake news story written by AlArbi AlJadid news site, which is owned and operated jointly by Jordan’s king and Qatar’s Emir. The actual Executive Director is Azmi Bishara, convicted for terror-supporting former Israeli Arab MK. The king is trying to dismiss the fact that Jordan is Palestine is now being seriously discussed by US, UK, Israel, Saudi, UAE and Egypt.

Report: The president promotes the establishment of a Palestinian state within the borders of the Palestinian Authority. According to the newspaper Al Arabi Al Jadid, the Egyptians and the Saudis gave the blessing, Israel opposes it

Nir Moalm

Has President Trump’s peace plan been revealed? According to the newspaper Al Arabi Al Jadid, it appears that it is. The London-based London daily reported on Sunday that the US president’s plan would include gradual borders for the Palestinian state, but that the refugee issue would be taken off the agenda at least in the initial stage. It was also reported that the Egyptians and the Saudis had already given their consent to the plan, and it was not inconceivable that the Palestinians also agreed to it, Maariv reported.

In the Arab media, the program was dubbed “the deal of the century”, while the Americans sounded a bit more cautious and called it the “general lines” plan. The borders of the Palestinian state that will be established will initially include Gaza and the Palestinian territories in Judea and Samaria and will gradually expand according to future agreements toward the 1967 lines.

Change is coming to Jordan whether the king likes it or not  

By Mudar Zahran

Despite Israel’s desire to protect the Hashemite regime, and stay out of messy Arab internal politics, it is now public knowledge that the Israeli intelligence establishment believes that Jordan’s king’s fall is imminent, and Israeli officials have been whispering that in private for a while, desperately discussing ways to save king and keep him in power. Nonetheless, a well-calculated, carefully-ushered and engineered change in Jordan could pose a huge opportunity for US, Israel, our Jordanian people, and all of those who want peace.

No, we’re not seeking a total regime change in Jordan, in which the state itself is turned into nothingness, leaving a gap for Islamists to jump in and take over. That was Obama’s style at best, because Obama did not know better, or at worst, because he wanted the Islamists to take over.

A hollow nuclear deal  

Abraham ben Zvi Washington and the axis of evil

“One thing is clear, however: Contrary to Trump’s initial message of isolationism and drawing inward into America, the holding defense doctrine he presented to the world last week clearly demonstrated his willingness to decisively and uncompromisingly confront challenges. Together with the international community, he is ready to face the centers of fanaticism and radicalism that are threatening the U.S.’s national interests and the stability of the entire system. This is a major step toward rehabilitating the U.S.’s status and ability to lead, which eroded during former President Barack Obama’s eight years in the White House.”

By Yaacov Amidror, ISRAEL HAYOM

Iran’s ballistic missile test on Friday, which included a projectile with a range of 2,000 kilometers (1,242 miles), making it capable of reaching much of the Middle East, including Israel, again highlighted the weakness of the 2015 nuclear deal between the Islamic republic and world powers, namely the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany.

Rockets hit Damascus airport area in probable Israeli attack  

Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reports Israeli warplanes carried out at least three sorties that targeted weapons depots and weapons intended for Hezbollah in Lebanon • Syria’s air defense system fails to intercept fighter jets.

By Daniel Siryoti, Lilach Shoval, Reuters and Israel Hayom Staff

Israeli fighter jets attacked a compound housing long-range missiles and other weapons near the Damascus International Airport around 2:30 a.m. on Friday, Syrian and Lebanese media reported over the weekend.

While Damascus and Hezbollah have yet to officially respond to the reports, unofficial sources in Syria were quoted as confirming the airstrikes. The sources said there were no casualties among Syrian forces from the attacks, but a number of warehouses inside the compound sustained considerable damage.

The U.K.-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that Israeli Air Force aircraft carried out at least three sorties from Lebanese air space that targeted weapons depots and weapons intended for transfer to Hezbollah in Lebanon.

How Obama funded opposition to Trump via money that belongs to taxpayers  

By Thomas Lifson, AMERICAN THINKER

One of the most outrageous abuses of the Obama presidency was a scheme by which fines for corporate misbehavior by the biggest Wall Street banks were channeled into the hands of radical leftist groups that are now vehemently opposing the policies of President Trump. We are talking hundreds of millions of dollars that ought to have gone to the federal treasury, but instead became a slush fund for the left.

Paul Sperry explains in the New York Post:

Wall Street might be shocked to learn it is helping bankroll the anti-Trump “resistance” movement that’s aggressively fighting policies it favors — including corporate tax cuts and the repeal of Obama-era banking and health-care regulations.

The Obama administration’s massive shakedown of Big Banks over the mortgage crisis included unprecedented back-door funding for dozens of Democratic activist groups who were not even victims of the crisis.

Can US withdraw from JCPOA if it endangers American interests?  

T. Belman. As I said before, the issue is not whether the US can withdraw but when she withdraws, what will she do to stop Iran’s progress on the bomb. I say that she has no other option but to bomb the facilities and instigate regime change.

Can the US wash its hands of the agreement, or are we stuck with it?

By Eric R Mandel, JPOST

The Iran deal is not a fair deal to this country” – US President Donald Trump, September 14, 2017 What if the Trump administration comes to the conclusion that the Iran agreement (JCPOA ) authored by the previous administration has destabilized the Middle East and undermined American interests? Since it was signed, Iran has actively supported the ethnic cleansing of hundreds of thousands of Sunnis, while being complicit in Syrian President Bashar Assad’s genocide of his own people.

Who is out to get Trump National Security Adviser General McMaster?  

T. Belman. Even if this was fake news, there was a lot of news on McMaster that wasn’t fake.He got rid of Pro-Israel people from the NSA did he not. He gave a security clearance to Susan Rice. He sent an anti-Israel person with Kushner in his last trip to Israel. I am sure there are many more. He reiterates Obama’s views on Islam and the MB rather than Trump’s.

Israel Embassy & NSC officials say McMaster Hezbollah/Yelling story is false. What is going on?

By Jeff Dunitz. INN

Pajamas Media and Israel National News (Arutz Sheva) both ran a story this month that U.S. National Security Adviser McMaster sparked an argument with an Israeli delegation during an August meeting to discuss the terrorist group Hezbollah. According to the reports, the argument was sparked by McMaster bringing an unwanted NSA official to the meeting and his denying that Hezbollah was a terrorist group.

In a statement to The Lid, the spokesman for the Israeli Embassy in DC called the reports “totally false,” and in a separate discussion, an NSC official who was at the meeting says the NSC employee in question wasn’t in the meeting.

Per each of the reports, National Security Advisor. McMaster invited NSC Senior Director on Counter-Terrorism Mustafa Javed Ali to the meeting with Israel that took place in the White House. Supposedly Mr. Ali is against designing Hezbollah as a terrorist group. According to the reports, the Israeli delegation demanded that Ali leave the room.

COLUMN ONE: Israel and the American Jewish Crises  

The key to strengthening and supporting the community is to bypass its failed leadership and speak and interact directly with American Jews.

By Caroline B. Glick, JPOST

As the New Year 5778 begins, 88% of Israeli Jews say that they are happy and satisfied with their lives. This makes sense. Israel’s relative security, its prosperity, freedom and spiritual blossoming make Israeli Jews the most successful Jewish community in 3,500 years of Jewish history.

The same cannot be said for the Jews of the Diaspora. In Western Europe, Jewish communities that just a generation ago were considered safe and prosperous are now besieged. Synagogues and Jewish schools look like army barracks. And the severe security cordons Jews need to pass through to pray and study are entirely justified. For where they are absent, as they were at the Hyper Cacher Jewish supermarket in Paris in 2015, assailants strike.

Lawrence Solomon: Why Israel might take out North Korea’s nukes  

North Korea, in league with Iran, poses an existential threat to Israel — with its tiny land mass, Israel could not withstand a successful nuclear attack

By Lawrence Solomon, NATIONAL POST

North Korea’s rhetoric, like its promise earlier this year to unleash a “merciless, thousand-fold punishment” on its enemy, is familiar to us. But the target of the invective may surprise some. That particular threat was levied against Israel, and understandably so. Kim Jong-Un has reason to fear and loathe Israel.

The United States, South Korea and Japan—the three Pacific countries the Western press focuses on—haven’t been willing to kill North Koreans. Israel has. The U.S., South Korea and Japan haven’t blown up North Korean facilities. Israel has, many believe, and for good measure it also exercises control over North Korean shipping. Kim knows that Israel acts militarily and covertly to thwart his plans at home and abroad and that Israel is far likelier to take pre-emptive actions than his appeaser-neighbours. Unlike Trump, who issues loud threats of his own but is restrained in action, Israel acts and remains silent.

History of Jordan, Jordan as Palestine  

http://www.eretzyisroel.org/~jkatz/jordan.html

Extracted From Time Immemorial by Joan Peters

[..]

Historian Arnold Toynbee observed in 1918 that the “desolate” land “which lies east of the Jordan stream,”3 was

capable of supporting a large population if irrigated and cultivated scientifically. … The Zionists have as much right to this no-man’s land as the Arabs, or more.

Thus, the territory known variously as “Palestine,” as “South Syria,” as “Eastern and Western Palestine,” or as part of “Turkey” had been designated by international mandate as a “Jewish National Home,” concerning which the United States declared,

That there be established a separate state of Palestine…. placed under Great Britain as a mandatory of the League of Nations … that the Jews be invited to return to Palestine and settle there…. and being further assured that it will be the policy of the League of Nations to recognize Palestine as a Jewish state as soon as it is a Jewish state in fact. . . . England, as mandatory, can be relied on to give the Jews the privileged position they should have without sacrificing the [religious and property] rights of non-Jews.4[..]

Trump’s Bold Defense of America  

He called out North Korea and Iran for the lying evildoers that they are.

By Conrad Black, NATIONAL REVIEW

He called out North Korea and Iran for the lying evildoers that they are. It is becoming difficult to believe that the ever-more-silly entertainment world, an echo chamber of escalating primal imbecilic utterances in a hall of mirrors, festers in the same country that, as its president correctly told the United Nations on Tuesday morning, now has more people working than ever before and the highest market capitalization of its industries of all time, is striving toward increasing prosperity, and is the only force in the world trying to keep hydrogen bombs out of the hands of psychotic lunatics.

Moscow: US-backed SDF faces “destruction.” Pro-Iranian Iraqi force crosses into Syria  

DEBKA

Israel’s strategic situation took several steps back in the first week of the New Year, chiefly: The US pulled back from E. Syria under Russian threat, allowing Iran to move in.

In just one week, the dire perils, which many military and political experts warned against for years, are suddenly looming on Israel’s northern border.

  • From Sept.15-17, Syrian and Hizballah forces crossed the Euphrates to the eastern bank on pontoon bridges provided by Russia.
  • Last Saturday, Sept. 16, Russian jets bombed the US-backed Syrian Defense Forces (SDF) in the Deir ez-Zour region, as a warning against their obstructing the eastward impetus of those Syrian and Hizballah units.
