American UN Envoy: No Country Would Act With More Restraint Than Israel Has in Gaza

editor 21 May 2018

By Algemeiner Staff.. A day after several dozen Palestinian rioters were killed in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip as they violently tried to storm across the border into Israel, America’s UN envoy voiced a strong defense of the Jewish state at a UN Security Council meeting on Tuesday (May 15, 2018). Ambassador Nikki Haley said:

“Hamas has attacked the Kerem Shalom crossing, the biggest entry point in Gaza for fuel, food, and medical supplies. This is how determined they are to make the lives of the Palestinian people miserable. They light Molotov cocktails attached to kites on fire and attempt to fly them into Israel to cause as much destruction as possible. When asked yesterday why he put a swastika on his burning kite, the terrorist responded, ‘The Jews go crazy when you mention Hitler.’ This is what is endangering the people of Gaza. Make no mistake: Hamas is pleased with the results from yesterday. I ask my colleagues here in the Security Council, who among us would accept this type of activity on your border? No one would. No country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has.” [Photo top right: US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley. Photo: Reuters / Lucas Jackson].

Hamas Co-Founder: Calling Gaza Riots ‘Peaceful Resistance’ Is ‘Deceiving the Public’

editor 21 May 2018

By Shiri Moshe.. A senior Hamas leader said on Sunday that recent Palestinian riots on the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip were backed by the Islamist group’s fighters and weapons. In an interview with Al Jazeera, Hamas co-founder Mahmoud al-Zahhar called allegations that the terrorist group was employing “peaceful resistance” against Israel “a clear terminological deception.” [Photo top right: Hamas co-founder Mahmoud Al-Zahhar speaks in an interview with Al-Jazeera on May 13, 2018.

U.S. Envoy Greenblatt: Hamas Has Taken Gaza Back To The Stone Age

editor 15 May 2018

By Jason Greenblatt..All parties interested in bringing change to Gaza need to face the reality that Hamas has failed its own people. As Hamas continues to exploit protests to foment violence against Israel, finding a way to help the people of Gaza in any meaningful way becomes more and more challenging.

US Jewish and Pro-Israel Groups Extol Trump’s Withdrawal From Iran Nuclear Deal

editor 9 May 2018

By Algemeiner Staff.. Top US Jewish and pro-Israel groups reacted on Tuesday (May 8, 2018) — largely with praise — to President Donald Trump’s announcement of America’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal.

An edited sampling of these responses can be read below:

Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations Chairman Stephen Greenberg and Executive Vice Chairman and CEO Malcolm Hoenlein said, “The president’s declaration reflects frustration with Iranian behavior following the implementation of the JCPOA. While there are some differences of views as to the most effective approach, the Conference of Presidents has clearly and consistently called for an agreement which would ensure that Iran never obtains a nuclear weapons capability that would augment its ability to create mayhem in the region through its support of terrorism.” [Photo top right: A military truck carrying a missile and a picture of Iran’s leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei drives in a parade marking the anniversary of the Iran-Iraq war in Tehran.

220 Airstrikes on Palestinians; World Yawns

editor 2 May 2018

By Khaled Abu Toameh.. Dropping barrels of dynamite on houses and hospitals in a Palestinian refugee camp is apparently of no interest to those who pretend to champion Palestinians around the world. Nor does the issue seem to move the UN Security Council. UNRWA said that of the estimated 438,000 Palestine refugees remaining inside Syria, more than 95% (418,000) are in critical need of sustained humanitarian assistance.

Blazing kites from Gaza set fire to Israeli wheat field

editor 28 April 2018

By Times Of Israel Staff.. Gaza terror cell vows to burn down fields ‘to pay for the bullets that you use to shoot children and peaceful unarmed demonstrators’. Gazans sent four kites affixed with flaming materials over the border on Monday, setting fire to wide swathes of a wheat field in southern Israel as Palestinians vowed to use the new tactic to try and cause “panic and attrition among the enemy.” Local farmers in the Shaar Hanegev region called the fire brigade to extinguish the blaze on the Gaza border, which caused no injuries, but did extensive damage. Reports said that up to 100 dunams (25 acres) of wheat was destroyed.

Taylor Force Act signed into law as part of massive spending bill

editor 30 March 2018

By JNS.. The Taylor Force Act, legislation that seeks to cut financial aid to the Palestinian Authority unless it ends its payments to terrorists and their families, has been passed by Congress as part of a massive $1.3 trillion spending bill. “I truly appreciate the hard work of the Force family and the many friends of Taylor Force who made it clear to Congress the practice of #PaytoSlay must be stopped,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who introduced the bill in 2016, tweeted on Friday (March 23, 2018).

‘I Think I Was Saved’ From France, Writes Granddaughter of Brutally-Murdered Holocaust Survivor Mireille Knoll

editor 29 March 2018

By Ben Cohen.. The president of France and the leader of the Democratic Party in the US Senate were among several international figures who paid tribute on Tuesday to Mireille Knoll — the 85-year-old Holocaust survivor murdered in her Paris apartment last Friday — but it was a Facebook post by one of the victim’s granddaughters that best captured the tragedy of the moment. Jessica Knoll, who lives in Israel, composed a poem in Hebrew in which she paid tribute to her grandmother — whose death is being investigated by French police as an antisemitic hate crime — and excoriated Europe as a continent whose politicians “have stopped thinking.” [Photo top right: Jessica Knoll with her grandmother Mireille, who was murdered in her Paris apartment on March 23.

She Survived the Holocaust, to Die in a 2018 Hate Crime

editor 28 March 2018

By Adam Nossiter.. PARIS — An 85-year-old woman who as a child narrowly escaped France’s most notorious wartime roundup of Jews has been murdered in Paris, and the authorities are calling it a hate crime. The body of the woman, Mireille Knoll, was found on Friday (March 23, 2018) in her apartment in the city’s working-class 11th Arrondissement. She had been stabbed to death, and her body was partly burned after her attackers apparently tried to set fire to the apartment.

Palestinian textbook immortalizes Coastal Road massacre terrorist

editor 21 March 2018

By Elior Levy, Ariela Sternbach.. Dalal Mughrabi [Photo top right], who led the terror cell that murdered 38 Israelis, among them 13 children, in the 1978 attack, is often glorified and immortalized in the Palestinian Authority; new textbook for 5th graders includes entire chapter dedicated to her, romanticizing her actions. The Coastal Road massacre of 1978, when 11 terrorists hijacked a bus on the Coastal Highway and murdered 38 Israelis, including 13 children, left a deep scar on Israeli society. Palestinian society, meanwhile, glorifies the killers, particularly cell leader Dalal Mughrabi, who was killed in a fire exchange with security forces and over the years became one of the symbols of the Palestinian struggle.
