October 17/17 – Menachem Begin Center, Jerusalem

Admission – Online 125 shekels until 20:00 on Oct 16/17 – TICKETS

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.

A stellar group of speakers has been assembled, including leading journalists, Knesset Members, spokespersons for the settlers, European politicians, 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.

This solution calls for Jordan to be the Palestine state and Israel to the Jordan River, to be the state of the Jews.

It calls for complete normalization between the two and considerable economic cooperation.

Nearly 1 in 10 Americans think neo-Nazi views okay, poll finds  

[Shocking!! I wonder how many Muslims in the sample.]

Number of those not opposed to white supremacist ideology rises to 17% among Trump supporters, says Washington Post/ABC survey

BY TIMES OF ISRAEL STAFF


New poll indicates that nearly one in ten Americans believe that neo-Nazi and white supremacist ideology is “acceptable.”

The survey, which was published Monday by ABC News/Washington Post, was conducted in the wake of the violent white nationalist rally earlier this month in Charlottesville, Virginia, in which a woman was killed when a white supremacist drove into a group of counter-protesters.

According to the poll of 1,014 respondents, 9 percent of people said that neo-Nazi views are okay to hold, while 83% said such ideology is “unacceptable” and 8% had no opinion.

The State Department’s recent hosting of an American Muslim organization known for its anti-Israel stance and support of boycotts of the Jewish state has sparked concern from those close to the Trump administration that these advocacy groups are seeking to drive a wedge into the United States’ relationship with Israel, which has hit speed bumps since Rex Tillerson assumed control of America’s chief diplomatic agency, according to multiple sources who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon.

Netanyahu to warn Putin what Israel will do if red lines are crossed  

T. Belman Why would Israel tell Russia what it plans to do. Its enough to draw the red lines.

By Herb Keinon, JPOST

Former National Security Council Advisor Yaakov Amidror says Netanyahu’s visit to Sochi is important so that the Russians have an understanding of how Israel will act if its hand is forced.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s primary objective during his upcoming talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin will not be to try to convince the Russians to prevent an Iranian permanent presence in Syria, but rather to let them know what Israel plans to do if Tehran tries to set up such a presence, former National Security Council Advisor Yaakov Amidror said on Tuesday.

Netanyahu is scheduled to fly to Sochi on the Black Sea for a meeting with Putin on Wednesday, returning home the same day. This will be his fourth trip to Moscow in the last 16 months.

Can Putin keep Hizballah from Israel’s borders?  

DEBKA

Israel’s northern borders with Syria and Lebanon were on edge this week, as Prime Minister Binyamin prepared to raise Israel’s concerns about southern Syria at a critical meeting with President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday, Aug. 23, at the Black Sea resort of Sochi.

The Prime Minister’s Office in Jerusalem noted that he would be accompanied by Mossad Director Yossie Cohen. He has just returned from a failed attempt in Washington to draw the Trump Administration’s attention to the deteriorating security situation on Israel’s northern borders, where Russian Muslim troops are already in position.

New US Mideast Director Implied Moral Equivalency between Palestinian Terror and Israel   

LT Col Howard writes to Rob Eshman,

While those who have clearly demonstrated their hostility to Israel such as Robert Malley still have their security clearances and their influence.

There is a effort underway to clear out the White House staff of all Pro-Israel staffers

You, Adam Schiff, Jonathan Greenblatt and others from certain wings of the American Jewish community have been calling people such as Sebastian Gorka who have been very firm in their support of Israel , “Nazi supporters”.

Remember, Adam Schiff ,with your support gave, Iran an unrestricted path to nuclear weapons and guided missiles which threaten to destroy Israel and are capable of causing severe damage to western Europe and the United States. Both of you supported an administration which has given Iran the resources to wage war against Israel through Hezbollah and Hamas and to operate terror operations throughout the world.

The Nazis and the Antifa both shout similar slogans and have identical objectives. Attacking Jews everywhere.

Since you have been so full throated in attacking Donald Trump for his “failure” to immediately condemn only the right wing in Charlottesville….. I challenge you:

WHERE IS YOUR OUTRAGE [At the effort underway to clear out the White House staff of all Pro-Israel staffers]?

By: Stephen M. Flatow/ JNS.org 8-21-17
David Satterfield, who is slated to become the State Department’s New Mideast Director, has repeatedly suggested a moral equivalency between Palestinian terrorism and Israeli counterterrorism. Should someone with this perspective be dictating policy? 
The newly appointed Middle East director at the State Department has a long record of criticizing and pressuring Israel. Isn’t anybody at the White House paying attention to who’s being hired over at Foggy Bottom?

Pres Trump’s Afghanistan strategy: Fighting to win  

A stark warning for “allies” who harbor terrorists.

By Lloyd Billingsley, FPM

Before President Donald Trump’s speech Monday the establishment media were telling anybody who would listen that the president would be committing 4,000 additional troops to Afghanistan. That turned out to be fake news but the president left no doubt on his strategy.

Speaking from Fort Myer, Virginia, the president thanked “every member of the U.S. military,” for their service. The special class of heroes, unmatched in human history, “deserve to return to a country not at war with itself.” He held up the U.S. military, composed of all races, colors and creeds, as an example for the nation, sacrificing together in perfect cohesion, bound together by one shared mission.

U.S. Islamic Movement Enters Final Stage  

The leading edge of the Islamic Movement’s Final Stage in the United States is upon us.  The violence is now beginning in earnest.

Understanding the Threat

One day in the future, history will record with great astonishment how military leaders, politicians on both sides of the aisle, intelligence professionals, and others were catastrophically unprofessional for 16 years after 9/11/2001, thus putting the American people in grave peril.

Understanding the Threat’s (UTT) has trained thousands of local, state and federal officers/agents on the Islamic threat (sharia and the jihadi network in the US), the hard-left Marxist/Socialist/Communist threat, and how these Movements work together to bring down the U.S. government.

The response to UTT’s training is always the same:  (1) none of those in attendance, including FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force agents/officers, have ever heard the information presented, and (2) they all agree it is critical to protecting their communities.  See some comments here.

Michael Savage Scolds Trump, Blasts Boston Leftists: ‘Trump Has Buckled to the Mob’  

By Adan Shaw, BREITBART

Author and radio host Michael Savage scolded President Trump and left-wing “Antifa” protesters in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News Sunday  — accusing President Trump of having “buckled to the mob” in Boston and warning that if Trump keeps kowtowing to Antifa and other leftist groups, “it’s all over.”

Savage was referring to a tweet from Trump sent Saturday, in which the president said he “applauds” the Antifa counter-protesters who showed up in the thousands to protest a free speech march of a few hundred people. The left-wing protesters are reported to have thrown rocks, and Boston police requested they not throw bottles of urine at officers.

Yet Trump took a radically different tone from the one he had taken just days earlier when he had reminded a furious media that the so-called “anti-fascist” protesters were also responsible for violence:

The Kurds Are About to Blow up Iraq  

By Michael J Totten, MEFORUM

Next month, on September 25, the Kurdistan Regional Government in Erbil will hold a binding referendum on whether or not to secede from Iraq. It will almost certainly pass. More than a decade ago, the Kurds held a non-binding referendum that passed with 99.8 percent of the vote.

No one knows what’s going to happen. Iraq is the kind of place where just about anything can happen and eventually does.

Kurdish secession could go as smoothly as a Scottish secession from the United Kingdom (were that to actually happen) or a Quebecois secession from Canada, were that to actually happen. It could unfold like Kosovo’s secession from Serbia, where some countries recognize it and others don’t while the Serbs are left to stew in their own juices more or less peaceably.

The Humanitarian Hoax of Victimhood: Killing America With Kindness – Hoax #8  

by Linda Goudsmit, PUNDICY

The Humanitarian Hoax is a deliberate and deceitful tactic of presenting a destructive policy as altruistic. The humanitarian huckster presents himself as a compassionate advocate when in fact he is the disguised enemy.

Obama, the humanitarian huckster-in-chief, weakened the United States for eight years presenting his deceitful policies featuring victimhood as altruistic when in fact they were designed for destruction. His legacy, the Leftist Democrat Party with its “resistance” movement, is the party of the Humanitarian Hoax attempting to destroy American democracy and replace it with socialism.

The three basic tenets of left-wing liberal progressivism are political correctness, moral relativism, and historical revisionism. Leftist progressivism is an extremely regressive political structure that emphasizes victimhood and encourages childlike dependence on the government in its march toward socialism. Progressivism is an Orwellian doublespeak word designed to dupe the participant into believing he is moving society forward when in fact progressivism and progressive policies support regression backwards toward childhood dependence.

Boston Free Speech Rally Falsely Branded As ‘White Supremacist’  


By Scott Greer, DC

Thousands of people protested against an alleged “white supremacist” rally in Boston on Saturday.

Multiple outlets, journalists, politicians and other public figures declared that the event that drew an estimated 40,000 people to protest against was racist in nature.

ThinkProgress covered the rally with this headline, “White supremacist rally fizzles, overtaken by massive anti-racism march.” The story mocked the idea that it was a “free speech” rally, stated that there it would draw “attendees from the same white supremacist groups that marched on Charlottesville last weekend,” and that some Klansmen had announced they would attend the rally.

Free speech is under assault  

By Ted Belman

A rally was held in Boston by few hundred people who supported free speech.  20,000 protesters showed up to protest free speech. A crowd of that size had to be organized by Antifa and their backers. Many of these protesters came to to rally intending to be violent. The police ended the rally earlier than planned. There were just too many counter protesters..

Boston Commissioner William Evans said that 27 arrests were made on Saturday — mostly for disorderly conduct, but including some for assaulting police officers. Protesters threw bottles, urine and rocks at police officers in the late afternoon, according to police.

Notice in this MSM report the violent protesters are not identified to to what side they were on. When that happens you know they were on the left.

To stand up for free speech ie the First Amendment is a noble thing. But the left has conflated this with hate speech ie “Free Speech enables “hate speech”. Therefore they frame their protest as protesting hate speech and the media do nothing to clarify this but in fact is joining the left in doing so.

Bannon boycotted Trump’s meeting with ‘terrorist’ Abbas — report  

Its obvious that Evanka and Jared are New York liberals and as such answer to their fellow travelers rather than the Trump base.

Extent of animosity between ousted strategist and president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner is steadily emerging in US media reports

By Tamar Pileggi, TOI

Days after his ouster from the White House, the extent of the animosity between divisive strategist Steve Bannon and the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner was steadily emerging in US media reports.

Bannon, a hero of the so-called “alt right” whose presence in the West Wing was controversial from the start, had become the nucleus of one of several competing power centers in a chaotic White House.

During his six-month tenure as Trump’s chief strategist, Bannon and Kushner had clashed on numerous policy issues, including the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

In Blow to Iran, Egypt Becomes Surprise New Player in Syria  

To Israel’s delight, Cairo’s involvement is already showing results

By Zvi Bar’el, HAARETZ

A new and surprising player has recently entered the Syrian arena and has already contributed to establishing local cease-fires: Egypt received Saudi and Russian “permission” to conduct negotiations between the rebel militias and the regime, both in Ghouta al-Sharqiya (east of Damascus) and the northern neighborhoods in the city of Homs. In both cases, it managed to get a cease-fire deal signed – in the former on July 22, in the latter in early August.

Both areas are part of the de-escalation zones on which Russia, Turkey and Iran agreed in May, in consultation with the United States. But this is the first time Egypt has played an active role in diplomatic negotiations between the warring parties that produced positive results.

Jerusalem Railway edges closer to Maiden Journey  

A nation of commuters will be delighted by news of the successful railway test.

By Eytan Halon, JPOST

28 minutes. That’s the time it took for a passengerless train to make the journey from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on Sunday in the first test run of the new high-speed rail link connecting two of Israel’s major cities, according to Channel 2.

A nation of commuters will be delighted by news of the successful test. The route, set to open in April 2018, will significantly cut the time currently required to travel from Tel Aviv to central Jerusalem by road or train.

The high-speed railway has been under construction since 2001 and will complement the existing, slower Jaffa-Jerusalem railway. Trains traveling on the 19th century Ottoman-built railway, which winds between picturesque hills, take approximately 80 minutes to arrive at their final destination. Many commuters opt to travel by car or bus.

The Hajj and the struggle for Islamic leadership  

The annual Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca symbolizes much more than the desire of the worshipers to be closer to Allah.

By Mordechai Kedar, INN

Wednesday, August 23, 2017, is the first day of Zhu–l-Hijjat, the Muslim month in which two important events take place: The pilgrimage to Mecca, one of the most central of the five Islamic commandments, and the Holiday of the Offering, Id al-Adha, with which it comes to an end.

This month is notable in the Muslim world as a result of its religious content, but also due to the political aspects that accompany that content. It is well known that in Islam there can be no separation between religion and state, between religious factors, public issues and politics.

The Hajj ceremonies in Mecca and its environs last for nine days, from the first to the ninth of the month, with each day having its own specific rituals. The tenth day marks the start of Id al-Adha, the holiday of the offering, which lasts for four days, until the 13th. The House of Saud appointed itself “guardian of the holy places” in 1925 when it took over the Hajj. It manages the Hajj with a powerful hand, making sure that all pilgrims observe the rituals in the traditional Islamic manner as interpreted by the Saudi monarchy. This fact is of great significance, because it proves that the Saudi ruler, and no one else, is the most important figure in the Islamic world.

Alarms of Danger Hitting Jordan

By Sami Maitah

Published by most Jordanian news sites 18-08-2017 

The most dangerous thing [against Jordan] now is the movement to hold a conference at the Began Center of Intelligence about Jordan being the solution. The points of discussions include the form of the Jordanian states and concepts that bring a coup against Jordan’s constitution and national identity of Jordan. From the points of discussion and the concepts, this is a provocative message by all means and desires that the Jordanian state stops at those.

Jews Misread America’s Cultural Civil War  

By Melanie Phillips

The cultural civil war that has now exploded in America is an immensely dangerous moment for the west. It is also perilous for the State of Israel and the Jewish people. Yet in both Israel and the diaspora, too many Jews just don’t get it. They are parroting instead the double-dealing and hypocritical pieties of their mortal enemies.

After Charlottesville, Israel’s President Reuven Rivlin wrote a letter expressing “support and solidarity” with the American Jewish community “at this difficult time”.

Jewish students in America run a permanent gauntlet of left-wing hate over Israel. Has Rivlin ever expressed his “support and solidarity” with the American Jewish community over antisemitism on campus?

Antisemitism on the Left  

by Steve Kramer

I was shocked, but not surprised, to see the Washington Post feature an op-ed this weekend (August 19) stating that the left has eschewed political violence. Author Yoav Fromer admits that there is some violence on the left, but for decades it hasn’t compared to the “methodical, organized and strategic violence and incitement” of the right. What about rioting in Ferguson, MO, Portland, OR, Baltimore, MD and annually in Devos, Switzerland, or the attempt to murder the Republican congressional baseball team, to name just a few recent instances? There is extreme violence on the fringes of the left and the right. Excusing the left wing component, as the media icons do on a regular basis, only exacerbates the political divisions which are plaguing Western democracies.
