SINCE THE RAPTURE OCCURS BEFORE THE FUTURE 7 YR TREATY IS SIGNED, I WONT BE AROUND TO HAVE THE ACTUAL TREATY SIGNING. BUT UNTIL THEN THIS SITE IS DEDICATED TO THE BEGININGS OF THE ISRAELI / ARAB PEACE PROCESS. AND AS CLOSE TO THE 7 YEAR SIGNING THAT WE GET BEFORE THE RAPTURE OF THE SAVED TO HEAVEN. UNTIL WE MEET JESUS IN THE CLOUDS BODILY, AND COME TO EARTH 7 YRS LATER.

"As a communist I don’t believe in heaven or the Bible but as a scientist I now believe in hell," said Dr. Azzacove. "Needless to say we were shocked to make such a discovery. But we know what we saw and we know what we heard. And we are absolutely convinced that we drilled through the gates of hell!"Dr. Azzacove continued, ". . .the drill suddenly began to rotate wildly, indicating that we had reached a large empty pocket or cavern. Temperature sensors showed a dramatic increase in heat to 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit.""We lowered a microphone, designed to detect the sounds of plate movements down the shaft. But instead of plate movements we heard a human voice screaming in pain! At first we thought the sound was coming from our own equipment.""But when we made adjustments our worst suspicions were confirmed. The screams weren’t those of a single human, they were the screams of millions of humans!"The following is a recording that claims to be the actual sounds of hell from the above article.

3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog,(LEADER OF RUSSIA) the chief prince of Meshech(MOSCOW) and Tubal:TOBOLSK)
4 And I (GOD) will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws,(GOD FORCES THE RUSSIA-MUSLIMS TO MARCH) and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:

5 Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.
6 And I will send a fire on Magog,(NUCLEAR ATOMIC BOMB) and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD.
7 So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.
8 Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken.

14 And they shall sever out men of continual employment,(NUCLEAR ATOMIC BOMB EXPERTS) passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search.
15 And the passengers that pass through the land, when any seeth a man’s bone, then shall he set up a sign by it,(WON'T TOUCH IT) till the buriers have buried it (PROPERLY) in the valley of Hamongog.(RUSSIA/ARAB/MUSLIMS NEW BURIEL SITE)(EAST OF THE DEAD SEA IN THE JORDAN VALLEY)
16 And also the name of the city shall be Hamonah. Thus shall they cleanse the land.(OF THE ISRAEL-GOD HATERS)

World's largest cemetery grows bigger as Shi'ite militias bury their dead-[Reuters]-By Alaa al-Marjani and Saif Hameed-August 23, 2016-YAHOONEWS

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - The world's largest cemetery, in Iraq's Shi'ite holy city of Najaf, is expanding at double its usual rate as the nation's death rate increased with the war on Islamic State.The Wadi al-Salam cemetery, Arabic for "Peace Valley," has a special place in the hearts of Shi'ite Muslims as it surrounds the Mausoleum of their first imam, Ali Bin Abi Talib, a cousin and son-in-law of Prophet Mohammad.The pace of daily burials rose to 150-200 after Islamic State, the ultra-hardline Sunni group overran a third of the country in 2014, said Jihad Abu Saybi, a historian of the cemetery. The rate was 80-120 a day previously, he said.Shi'ite paramilitary often visit Ali's golden-domed shrine before heading to the frontlines to battle Islamic State, and request to be laid to rest in Wadi al-Salam should they be killed, as a reward for their sacrifice.As land becomes scarce, the cost of a standard 25 square meter family burial lot has risen to about 5 million Iraqi dinars ($4100) almost double the amount paid for the same lots before violence escalated as IS exerted control over large swathes of north and western Iraq in 2014.Millions of graves of different shapes lie in the roughly 10 square km (4 square miles) cemetery that attracts burials from Shiites all over the world. By nationality, Iraq's Iranian neighbors are thought to come second in number people interred near Ali's golden-domed shrine.Often built with baked bricks and plaster, decorated with Koranic calligraphy, some graves are above ground tombs, reflecting the wealth of those within.(Editing by Jeremy Gaunt.)

Dead Sea drying: A new low-point for Earth-By Kevin Connolly BBC Middle East correspondent-17 June 2016
http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-36477284 (pictures to story)

The Dead Sea, the salty lake located at the lowest point on Earth, is gradually shrinking under the heat of the Middle Eastern sun. For those who live on its shores it's a slow-motion crisis - but finding extra water to sustain the sea will be a huge challenge.If there's one thing everyone knows about the Dead Sea it is that you can't sink in it.It is eight or nine times saltier than the oceans of the world - so dense and mineral rich that it doesn't even feel like normal water, more like olive oil mixed with sand.For decades no holiday in the Holy Land or Jordan has been complete without a photograph of the bather sitting bolt upright on the surface, usually reading a newspaper to emphasise the extraordinary properties of the water.But the Dead Sea is also a unique ecosystem and a sensitive barometer of the state of the environment in a part of the world where an arid climate and the need to irrigate farms combine to create a permanent shortage of water.You may have read that the Dead Sea is dying. You can see why the idea appeals to headline writers but it isn't quite true.As the level drops, the density and saltiness are rising and will eventually reach a point where the rate of evaporation will reach a kind of equilibrium. So it might get a lot smaller, but it won't disappear entirely.It is however shrinking at an alarming rate - the surface level is dropping more than a metre (3ft) a year.When you consider that the surface of the Dead Sea is the lowest point on the planet - currently 420m (1,380ft) below sea level - that means that the planet's lowest point is being recalibrated on an annual basis.It is deep enough that journeying along the road that winds down to the shore causes your ears to pop as they do on an aircraft coming in to land.The landscapes of the Dead Sea have an extraordinary, almost lunar quality to them - imagine the Grand Canyon with Lake Como nestling in its depths. And the people of the ancient world understood that there was something unique in the place, even if they couldn't be quite sure what it was.The story goes that Cleopatra used products from the area as part of her beauty regime, which as everyone knows also allegedly included asses' milk and almond extract - although in truth tales like that are ten-a-penny around the Middle East.And it's possible that King Herod, who had a winter palace nearby, came here for his health too - although his tarnished historical reputation does tend to devalue his worth as a celebrity endorser in the classical world.What is certain is that when the Romans occupied the Middle East they exerted rigid military control over the roads around the Dead Sea because it was such a fertile source of salt - a commodity so valuable then that it was used as a form of currency.And the health benefits appear to be real enough. The intense barometric pressure so far below sea level may produce atmospheric conditions beneficial for asthmatics - I am a sufferer and I noticed a degree of difference.And people with the painful skin disease psoriasis also seem to find relief in the combination of mineral-rich water, soothing mud and intense sunlight. In some countries, health agencies and charities pay for people with the condition to come on therapeutic trips.So even though the Dead Sea is shrinking and changing, it still has an economic value. Tourists can choose to visit resorts in either Jordan or Israel and both countries also export cosmetic products manufactured in the area.Part of the shoreline is in the West Bank under Israeli occupation so it's possible that in future Palestinians too will reap the economic benefits of the sea's unique properties.But there's no doubt that the decline in the water level has been spectacular.During the World War One, British engineers scratched initials on a rock to mark the level of the water. A century on, those scratch-marks are high on a bone-dry rock.To reach the current water level you must climb down the rocks, cross a busy main road, make your way through a thicket of marshy plants and trek across a yawning mud flat. It's about 2km (1.25 miles) in all.A few kilometres along the coastline, in the tourist resort of Ein Gedi, the retreating of the water has created a huge problem.When the main building, with its restaurant, shower block and souvenir shop, was built towards the end of the 1980s, the waves lapped up against the walls.Now the resort has had to buy a special train in which tourists are towed down to the water's edge by a tractor (another 2km journey).For Nir Vanger, who runs the business side of Ein Gedi's tourist operations, it's an unnerving rate of change."The sea was right here when I was 18 years old, so it's not like we're talking about 500 or a 1000 years ago," he says. "The Dead Sea was here and now it's 2km away, and with the tractor and the gasoline and the staff it costs us $500,000 a year to chase the sea."I grew up here on the Dead Sea - all my life is here, and unfortunately in the last few years that's a bit of a sad life because you see your home landscape going and disappearing, and you know that what you leave for your children and grandchildren won't be what you grew up with."When we built a new house my wife asked me if I wanted a view of the sea and I said we should build it with a view of the mountains because they stay where they are and the sea keeps moving.'So it's not hard to understand the mystique of the Dead Sea, with its unique chemistry, harsh micro-climate and soaring camel-coloured mountains - a landscape that would still be recognisable to Herod and Cleopatra, give or take the odd multi-storey concrete hotel.But to a geologist it is simply the terminal lake of the River Jordan - its end point. The river flows in at one end but the water doesn't flow out again at the other - it just sits there and evaporates.And while it is an exaggeration to say that the Dead Sea is dying, that would be a reasonable description of the river that feeds it.It's true that in the brief rainy season there are flash floods that bring water coursing through the wadis, or stony inlets. But these are parched for most of the year, and the river itself barely more than a trickle.There are places in Israel and in the occupied West Bank where, in the dry season, you can almost step over it.The Jordan was once one of the great waterways of the ancient world - Christ was baptised in it - and even in relatively modern times it was a surging river prone to flooding in rainy winters.In 1847, the US government despatched a naval expedition to explore the Jordan for motives that appear to have been as much religious as they were scientific or navigational.The expedition was led by a doughty officer called William F Lynch, who deserves a footnote in the history of the region if only because he may have been the first person to calculate that the Dead Sea lies below sea level.Lynch's description of his adventures is entertaining, even if he has a habit of describing the indigenous peoples of the region in ways that grate on 21st Century sensibilities.What's interesting is his description of the river itself, where at one point he finds a series of 5m-high waterfalls separated by rapids - he even fears that he'll lose one or more of the expedition's boats."We halted at the ruins of an old bridge now forming obstructions over which the foaming river rushed like a mountain torrent," he writes. "The river was 30 yards wide."Eighty years or so later, there was still enough water in the Jordan to allow a Russian Zionist engineer called Pinchas Rutenberg to construct a hydro-electric power station in a remote stretch of the river valley - its abandoned buildings still stand there in what is now a desiccated landscape.Things are startling different these days.The geography of the region hasn't changed, of course. The northern section of the Jordan flows into the Sea of Galilee and then the southern section flows south out of the Galilee and down into the Dead Sea.But the amounts of water flowing into and out of that system have changed spectacularly in recent decades - all part of the complicated politics of water in the Middle East.Israel has a dam across the southern section of the Sea of Galilee which gives it control of the amount of water flowing into the Jordan - it regards the Galilee as a vital strategic water asset, even though it's been steadily increasing the amount of fresh water it creates through desalination plants in the Mediterranean.The Israeli government began taking water out of the Jordan Valley system in the 1950s, the decade before it completed the dam.And this creates problems for farmers in both Jordan and the Palestinian territory of the West Bank - all of whom need water to irrigate their farms and feed their people.But Israel has problems too - although it has enough money and enough technical resources to ensure its own people have enough water.The River Jordan is fed by the River Yarmouk, which flows through Syria. Over the last 30 years or so, the Syrians have built more than 40 dams to harness the water in the Yarmouk - water that once fed the Jordan.Some Jordanians believe Syria built some of these dams to punish Israel and Jordan for signing a peace treaty in 1994.The deal brought Jordan into line with Egypt, which signed a similar treaty in 1979, but left it badly out of step with other countries like Syria.Others are prepared to accept that the Syrians built the dams because their own people needed water, but either way the result is the same - less water available for a once-mighty river.And of course the Kingdom of Jordan has built dams for its own purposes too.More broadly still, the Jordan Valley is not the only place in the Middle East where the construction of a dam has created a strategic dispute.When Turkey built the Ataturk Dam on the Euphrates in the 1990s, Iraq and Syria complained that the vast construction project cut the flow of water to them.There is one bright spot in this otherwise overwhelmingly gloomy regional picture.In recent years, Israel has increased the amount of water being released in the River Jordan - the effect has only been to turn a trickle into a slightly bigger trickle, but it's better than nothing.The bottom line is that as populations rise across the Middle East, the demand for water is rising with it - and in a region where it's almost impossible to make broad, multi-lateral political agreements, it's difficult to imagine a deal being struck to manage water more fairly, more wisely and less competitively.There are other factors which affect the level of the Dead Sea - both Israel and Jordan use huge evaporation basins to extract valuable phosphates from the water to be exported as fertiliser - but it's the striking decline in the River Jordan which does most to explain why the Dead Sea is in crisis.On the Jordanian shore of the sea, there is a small community of families growing tomatoes, bananas and watermelons in fields kept lush by underground supplies of fresh water, which sweep down from the surrounding mountains.Among the farmers there is Salim al-Huwemel. Like Nir Vanger in Ein Gedi, he feels rooted in the land."We'll never leave," he says as the young men of the village harvest melons in the cool early evening sunset, "Even if the Dead Sea were to rise up and sweep us into a sinkhole. We will always be here."Those sinkholes are the common enemy of villages and business on both the Jordanian and Israeli coastlines.They form when underground salt deposits left behind by the sea as it retreats either collapse into huge chasms or dissolve when fresh water seeps underground and causes the ground above to give way.Some of the craters are huge - perhaps 100m across and 50m deep - and in places it looks as though the area is in the grip of a powerful earthquake happening over the course of several decades.The Jordanian farmers showed me the ruined site of an old salt factory that collapsed into a hole.On a section of shore that is within the West Bank, a resort has been closed because part of it was swallowed up by another sink hole.And an Israeli filling station has closed because the road around it started to crack, split and collapse.All in all, there are now more than 5,500 such holes around the shoreline where 40 years ago there were none.This is somewhere where you feel geology is happening in real time. Where the sea has retreated, the salt crust beneath your feet creaks and crumbles deafeningly as though you're walking over sheets of cracked glass.It is an exciting place to be a scientist, says Dr Gidi Baer of the Geological Survey of Israel. Dr Baer says geologists are getting better at predicting where sinkholes are going to open - which is important when you consider that there are several busy roads running around the coastline. But the problem's getting worse."The number's not linear," he told me. "It's growing and accelerating. This year, for example, about 700 sinkholes formed, but in previous years the number was lower. In the 1990s it was a few dozen, now it's hundreds."Diagnosing what's wrong with the Dead Sea isn't difficult - it has after all been shrinking for at least 100 years, since those British engineers left their mark in the rock.Deciding what, if anything, should be done about the water level is more complex - a huge scientific and political issue. Geologists make the point that the level of the water in the past has probably been both higher and lower than it is now.The question is what the costs and benefits of any attempt to "save" the Dead Sea might be - whether that would be to slow the rate of decline or to do something vastly more ambitious and start to raise the level again."You have to ask, what we are trying to preserve here," says Dr Ittai Gavrieli, another scientist from the Geological Survey of Israel."Are we trying to raise the water level? To preserve the unique chemistry of the Dead Sea? And for what purpose - for tourism? If we want to restore the flow of the Jordan river, for example, then Israel would have to desalinate more water and that would cost money and have an environmental impact too."If the Jordan were ever restored, of course, it would be impossible to expect that Palestinian and Jordanian farming communities desperate for water on either bank would simply sit back and let the water flow by in the interests of science.But there is, of course, a case for doing something.Salem Abdel Rahman, a Jordanian activist for the Ecopeace Middle East environmental group puts it like this: "We are not talking about saving the Dead Sea because it's nice or not nice. We think that the Dead Sea is a symptom of sickness in the management of water resources. The saving of the Dead Sea will be a good indication that we moved away from sickness to a healthy environment."If the waters of the River Jordan are not to be restored, the likeliest scheme to revitalise the Dead Sea involves constructing a huge pipeline that would bring water across the desert from the Red Sea, far to the south.Similar ideas have been around for long time - British engineers once contemplated constructing canals to connect the Mediterranean to the Red Sea via the Dead Sea.It would have provided an alternative to the Suez Canal under British control, but proved impracticable because of the depth at which the Dead Sea lies below sea level.Even by modern engineering standards, the Red-Dead project as it's known would present some formidable technical challenges.Water would have to be desalinated first at the Red Sea (salty water would pollute the Dead Sea's unique chemistry). It would then have to be pumped up to a great height and fed into enormous pipes that would channel the water across the desert to its destination.The extra fresh water would benefit not just Jordan and Israel but the Palestinians too, so the World Bank is keen and the US is likely to provide at least some of the start-up capital.But the technical, financial and political difficulties are forbidding and the pipeline is unlikely to be built soon, if indeed at all.It's possible, of course, that the countries of the Middle East will find that co-operation impossible - multilateral agreements in this part of the world are rare.In which case, the Dead Sea will continue to shrink at something like its current rate for years to come, but it won't die.The science of saltiness and saturation means that the Dead Sea will eventually reach a point of equilibrium where it will stop shrinking. In simple terms, the amount of water in the sea's briny cocktail and the amount of evaporated moisture in the air above it would reach a kind of balance.And the Dead Sea has another trick up its sleeve too - it is prone to a certain level of evaporation for example but it's also hygroscopic, which means it is capable of absorbing water from the atmosphere around it. It's almost as though this endangered natural treasure has a kind of in-built safety mechanism.The sun-loungers in Jordan and Israel alike may have to be pushed quite a bit further across the beach before we get to this point, but a minimum level will one day be reached.So this is not in the end a story about how the Dead Sea is going to die - more an encouraging story about how nature in a region where man has not always been careful with natural resources can sometimes find a way to protect itself.

THE EUROPEAN UNION IS CALLING FOR ITS OWN ARMY JUST LIKE THE BIBLE SAID WOULD HAPPEN AS THE EUROPEAN UNION TAKES OVER WORLD CONTROL FROM THE GODLESS USA.

THE EU WORLD DICTATOR

REVELATION 6:1-2,13:1-3,7-9,16
1 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.
2 And I saw, and behold a white horse:(EU WORLD DICTATOR) and he that sat on him had a bow;(PEACE) and a crown was given unto him:(WORLD LEADER) and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.(THIS IS THE EU DICTATOR)
1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.(7 HEADS ARE THE 7TH WORLD EMPIRE IN HISTORY (THE EU) AS WELL AS THE VATICAN WHICH IS BUILT ON 7 HILLS. 10 HORNS ARE 10 KINGS THAT ARISE FROM THE EU, THEN #11 COMES ON THE SCENE BECOMES THE HEAD OF 3 OUNTRIES AND THEN THE EU DICTATOR, COMES FROM 1 OF THE 3 COUNTRIES THAT RULE FOR THIS TERM. I BELIEVE THE 3 COUNTRIES RULING AT THE TIME ARE SPAIN AND 2 OF THE ORIGINAL 6 THAT STARTED THE EU. FROM 1 OF THESE 3 COUNTRIES COME THE FUTURE EU DICTATOR PRESIDENT OF THE EUROPEAN UNION WHO GUARENTEES ISRAELS SECURITY FOR A LAND FOR PEACE 7 YEAR TREATY.
2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.(THE JEWISH EU DICTATOR GETS HIS POWER FROM SATAN,HE COMES FROM THE OCCULT).
3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.(THE DICTATOR HAS A FALSE RESURRECTION. JUST LIKE JESUS HAD A LITERAL RESURRECTION THIS DICTATOR GETS MURDERED AT THE 3 1/2 YR MARK OF THR 7 YEAR TREATY AND COMES BACK TO LIFE. THIS IS HOW HE CAN CLAIM TO BE GOD AND GET AWAY WITH IT AND CONTROL THE WHOLE EARTH.
7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
16 And he (FALSE POPE) causeth all,(WORLD SOCIALISM) both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

36 And the king shall do according to his will;(EU PRESIDENT) and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.
37 Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers,(THIS EU DICTATOR IS A EUROPEAN JEW) nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.
38 But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces:(HES A MILITARY GINIUS) and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.

We shall have World Government, whether or not we like it. The only question is whether World Government will be achieved by conquest or consent.James Paul Warburg appearing before the Senate on 7th February 1950

Like a famous WWII Belgian General,Paul Henry Spock said in 1957:We need no commission, we have already too many. What we need is a man who is great enough to be able to keep all the people in subjection to himself and to lift us out of the economic bog into which we threaten to sink. Send us such a man. Be he a god or a devil, we will accept him.And today, sadly, the world is indeed ready for such a man.

Eastern European Leaders Call For EU Army At Summit With Germany by Breitbart London-26 Aug 2016

(AFP) – Eastern EU countries on Friday pushed for the bloc to create a joint army as they met with Germany for talks on sketching Europe’s post-Brexit future.“We must prioritise security, and let’s start by building a common European army,” Hungary’s rightwing prime minister, Viktor Orban, said at talks with Czech, German, Polish and Slovak leaders.The five-nation gathering in Warsaw is part of a string of meetings among various groups of countries ahead of a summit on the EU’s future following the June 23 British referendum.Leftist Czech Premier Bohuslav Sobotka, for his part, said that “we should also begin a discussion about creating a common European army.”German Chancellor Angela Merkel also supported the idea of stronger security but urged caution on how plans were translated into acts.“Security is a fundamental issue… we can do more together in the areas of security and defence,” she said.“Brexit is not just any event, it’s a breaking point in the history of EU so we need to work out a very careful response,” Merkel added, according to the official English translation of her words.In an early response to Britain’s shock vote to exit the EU, Poland’s powerful rightwing leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski called for EU institutional reforms that would forge a confederation of nation states under a president in charge of a powerful common military.– Challenge to EU –However, the concept of a common army is a thorny issue within the European Union (EU).All five EU countries at Friday’s Warsaw talks are also members of the 28-member NATO Western defence alliance.But six of the EU’s 27 post-Brexit membership do not belong to NATO: Austria, Cyprus, Finland, Ireland, Malta and Sweden.EU and NATO ties with Russia plunged to their lowest point since the Cold War after Moscow’s 2014 annexation of the Crimean peninsula from Ukraine.The Kremlin’s sabre-rattling in the Baltic region has also spooked NATO and EU members there.EU leaders from 27 states meet on September 16 in the Slovak capital of Bratislava for an informal summit that will go ahead without Britain.Talks are likely to be challenging as Berlin’s preferred vision of a centralised, federal Europe clashes with proposals for a confederation of nation states popular among leaders of eastern EU members.Migration policy is another highly controversial issue on the agenda, with eastern members the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia refusing to take in refugees under an EU-wide quota system championed by Berlin.Merkel insisted on Friday that remaining members must focus on strengthening the bloc through boosting the economy and “finding common ground” despite divisions over issues like migration policy.“People will only accept Europe if it will ensure their (economic) wellbeing. We must be leaders in the area of technology. We want to offer well-paid jobs. We have a lot to do,” Merkel added.Poland on Friday urged leaders to focus on economic growth and address a perceived lack of democracy in European institutions.Rightwing Prime Minister Beata Szydlo urged “reforms that Europeans expect allowing the European Union to become a stronger, development-oriented EU — but above all for Europeans to feel they are in charge of the European Union.”

Eastern bloc wants fewer EU powers, more security By Eszter Zalan-EUOBSERVER

BRUSSELS, 26. Aug, 20:07-Central and eastern European leaders have reiterated the need for more national power in EU policy-making during talks with German chancellor Angela Merkel in Warsaw on Friday (26 August).Merkel met with the heads of the Visegrad group of four countries (V4) - the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia - as part of a European tour prior to the summit, in Bratislava on 16 September, on post-Brexit EU reform.She is meeting 15 EU leaders this week in an effort to bridge gaps between capitals, which have divergent views on how to react to the UK’s shocking decision to leave.She told press in Poland on Friday that Brexit should give impetus to reform, calling it a “turning point in the history of European integration”.Some countries, such as Italy, have called for a leap forward in EU powers, but the V4 believe people want less policy-making in Brussels.The V4 are also fierce critics of Merkel’s open-door policy on immigration and of EU-imposed migrant relocation quotas.Polish prime minister Beata Szydlo, who holds the rotating presidency of the V4 said alongside Merkel that the European project “must be rooted in the needs of real democratic communities - national democracies”.Hungary’s pugilistic leader, Viktor Orban, earlier in the day announced the building of a new, reinforced border fence to keep out migrants from Hungary.He told the V4+Merkel event that European institutions should go back to their “roots”.“The European Council and only the council should lead the EU," he said, referring to an intergovernmental body in Brussels where member states thrash out deals."The European Commission should stop acting as a political actor, and should return to being the guardian of the treaties,” he added.He said immigration and social policies in particular should stay in national hands.Szydlo and Orban, who have faced EU criticism for abusing rule of law at home, said Brexit was a symptom, not a cause of Europe’s problems.Despite their euroscepticism, Orban and Czech prime minister Bohuslav Sobotka called for the creation of a European army to reinforce defence cooperation.Szydlo also said the EU’s main priority should be the security of its citizens, amid concern on Russian revanchism and Middle East terrorism.Slovakia’s prime minister Rober Fico, whose country holds the rotating presidency of the EU Council, was more cautious. "The truth is that different countries have quite different opinions [on the EU reform],” he said.Fico also called for better communication between EU institutions, capitals, and average people.Merkel agreed, saying that Britain’s decision to leave had exposed the need for better communication within the bloc.On migration, Merkel said the EU could limit the flow of asylum seekers by doing deals with source and transit countries in the Middle East and Africa.Later on Friday, Merkel is to meet, back in Germany, with the prime ministers of Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Slovenia, and Sweden to continue her pre-Bratislava deliberations.

Juncker: NATO is not enough, EU needs an army-By EurActiv.com, Reuters-Mar 9, 2015 (updated: Jun 15, 2016)

The European Union needs its own army to face up to Russia and other threats, as well as to restore the bloc’s standing around the world, EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker told a German newspaper yesterday (8 March).Arguing that NATO was not enough because not all members of the transatlantic defence alliance are in the EU, Juncker said a common EU army would send important signals to the world.“A joint EU army would show the world that there would never again be a war between EU countries,” Juncker told the Welt am Sonntag newspaper. “Such an army would also help us to form common foreign and security policies and allow Europe to take on responsibility in the world.”Juncker said a common EU army could serve as a deterrent and would have been useful during the Ukraine crisis.“With its own army, Europe could react more credibly to the threat to peace in a member state or in a neighbouring state,” he said.“One wouldn’t have a European army to deploy it immediately. But a common European army would convey a clear message to Russia that we are serious about defending our European values.”The 28-nation EU already has battle groups that are manned on a rotational basis and meant to be available as a rapid reaction force. But they have never been used in a crisis.EU leaders have said they want to boost the common security policy by improving rapid response capabilities.But Britain, along with France, the two main military powers in the bloc, has been wary of giving a bigger military role to the EU, fearing it could undermine NATO.German Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen welcomed Juncker’s proposal. “Our future as Europeans will at some point be with a European army,” she told German radio. In the very long run, we will need a European army. Because we have to be credible when it comes to foreign policy #wahlarena #withJuncker— Jean-Claude Juncker (@JunckerEU) May 20, 2014-Background-The Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) replaces the former European Security and Defence Policy (ESDP). The Treaty of Lisbon introduces this name change by dedicating a new section in the founding treaties to this policy. The Treaty of Lisbon emphasises the importance and specific nature of the CSDP, which still forms an integral part of the Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP).The Treaty of Lisbon introduces for the first time a mutual defence clause, specifically binding EU Member States. If a member state is the victim of an armed attack on its territory, it can rely on the aid and assistance of the other member states, which are obliged to help.Two restrictions moderate this clause:the mutual defence clause does not affect the security and defence policy of certain Member States, specifically those which are traditionally neutral; the mutual defence clause does not affect the commitments made under the framework of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).There is still no European expenditure or European defence budget. The crisis in public spending induced cuts in national defence budgets. And as in the preceding Treaties, the CSDP remains a fundamentally intergovernmental issue.The challenges created by shrinking defence budgets are aggravated by the fragmentation which leads to unnecessary duplication of capabilities, organisations and expenditures. Studies on the added value of EU spending show that by integrating European land forces, EU countries would be able to save substantial resources.

Hebrew Nation Radio: Lutheran Church’s Rejection of Israel Brought Louisiana Flooding Catastrophe-By Abra Forman August 18, 2016 , 12:30 pm-breakingisraelnews   

“And I, behold, I do bring the flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; every thing that is in the earth shall perish.” (The Israel Bible™)-After historic flooding devastated Louisiana this week, a Hebrew Roots radio station suggested that the statewide disaster could be understood as divine retribution for anti-Israel resolutions passed by the Evangelical Lutheran Church (ELCA) in New Orleans last weekend.“I think you can connect the dots,” wrote a news editor for Hebrew Nation Radio in an article about the flooding. “There is a measure for measure principle here.”The article then linked to reports on the recent resolutions condemning Israel which were approved by ELCA at a triennial assembly in New Orleans on Saturday.The resolutions, which accused Israel of occupying Palestinian territories and committing human rights abuses against Palestinians, called for a number of anti-Israel measures, including a demand that the United States government halt all aid to the Jewish state if Israel continued building “settlements” in Judea and Samaria.The Lutheran Church also demanded that the US recognize the “State of Palestine” and called for divestment from Israeli companies.The measures were passed by an overwhelming majority of 751-162.Do you agree the Jewish people have a Biblical right to Jerusalem? The ELCA churchwide assembly began last Monday and concluded on Saturday. On Thursday night, torrential rain began to pound Louisiana. By Friday, most of the state had received over a foot of rain, with some locations seeing over 30 inches, reported NBC News.Thousands have had to flee their homes, with about 30,000 people needing to be rescued. Aerial photos show massive flooding in Baton Rouge area https://t.co/7iuXshT70W @theadvocatebr #LouisianaFlood pic.twitter.com/BGJNiFps2o— Dennis Dimick (@ddimick) August 14, 2016-These devastating pictures from @Mwfontenot17 show the extent of the current historic #LouisianaFlood situation pic.twitter.com/bTO6Y3OjKZ— Met Office (@metoffice) August 14, 2016-The disastrous flooding constitutes “the worst natural disaster to strike the United States since Superstorm Sandy” in 2012, said the American Red Cross.So far, 13 people have been killed and 8,400 displaced, and 40,000 homes have been damaged by the torrents of water still streaming through Louisiana. On Sunday, President Barack Obama declared the flooding a major disaster, with 20 parishes included in the federal disaster zone. Relief efforts are estimated to cost up to $30 million.As for the divine connection between the two events, for some, the correlation is clear.“The storm and deluge came out of nowhere without any warning,” pointed out the Hebrew Nation Radio article. “Folks are calling it ‘an act of God’. I wonder what got Him stirred up? Connect those dots!”It would not be the first time a connection has been made between events affecting Israel and natural disasters in the US. Parallels have also been drawn between the American-backed withdrawal from the Gaza Strip and Hurricane Katrina, which hit the Gulf Coast eight days after Israel began dismantling Jewish communities in Gaza.

PJTN Leader Cardoza-Moore: No Church Should Send a Cent to Gaza Ruled by Murderous Terrorist Bandits-By Abra Forman August 11, 2016 , 1:30 pm-breakingisraelnews   

“Give us help against the adversary; for vain is the help of man.” Psalms 60:13 (The Israel Bible™)-The world’s humanitarian organizations must stop sending aid money to Gaza as long as it is ruled by Hamas, said Christian Zionist leader and Special Envoy to the United Nations (UN) Laurie Cardoza Moore on Wednesday.“The enemy of the people of Gaza is Hamas, not Israel. Hamas has hijacked the coastal strip and rules over its people with an iron fist. For decades, the leadership of Hamas has robbed its people of aid money,” said Cardoza-Moore, who is the head of the pro-Israel Evangelical organization Proclaiming Justice to the Nations (PJTN).“The time has come to halt all aid money into the Gaza Strip as long as Hamas is in control,” she declared, referring to the terror organization which runs the Strip.Cardoza-Moore’s call to action follows revelations in the past week of two separate cases of Palestinian employees of aid organizations in Gaza, one of them a UN-run agency, using their positions to embezzle humanitarian funds and redirect aid towards Hamas.Fight Hamas Terror Tunnels. Defend Israel!-One of the men arrested for diverting aid funds and resources to Hamas worked for an Evangelical Christian organization, called World Vision International, operating in Gaza. The employee stole millions of dollars, in cash and goods, from the goodwill group over a period of years.Cardoza-Moore contacted World Vision last week to ask how a Christian organization could hire an agent of Hamas and employ him for years without realizing it, but did not receive a response, reported the Jerusalem Post.“It is unacceptable that hundreds of millions of dollars are likely being directly transferred to the coffers of an international terrorist organization in the name of Christianity and humanity,” she charged.“No church or humanitarian organization should send a single cent to Gaza as long as it is run by a band of murderous terrorist bandits.”

Religious parties demand meet with PM over Shabbat work on train-Shas, UTJ heads say they feel ‘cheated’ by transportation minister after Katz tells press he resisted their pressure-By Times of Israel staff August 27, 2016, 11:54 pm

The heads of the religious parties in the ruling coalition have demanded an urgent meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after he ruled on Friday that construction work on a train station in Tel Aviv would go ahead this Shabbat despite their objections.Work on the Shalom station is part of construction on the Jerusalem-Tel Aviv high-speed train line.In a joint statement Saturday, Shas leader Aryeh Deri, United Torah Judaism party head Yaakov Liztman and UTJ MK Moshe Gafni said they “strongly protest the unnecessary desecration of the Shabbat” with the work on the rail line over the weekend.The interior minister, the health minister and the chairman of the Knesset Finance committee, respectively, held a conference call Saturday to discuss their response to the Shabbat work. According to Haaretz, the three are likely to demand Netanyahu fire Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz.A source with UTJ told Haaretz Saturday that the parties felt “cheated” by Katz after he and Netanyahu indicated to them that postponing the work was tantamount to endangering human life.The Prime Minister’s Office on Friday issued a statement saying just that and ordering that the work go ahead. Sections of the Ayalon highway, the main expressway through Tel Aviv, were closed until Saturday evening.“With the end of the Shabbat, we saw pictures taken during the day and we heard Katz saying that he didn’t succumb to religious pressure [not to have work done on Shabbat]. That doesn’t look like the preservation of human life,” said the source.In their statement, the parties said they “regretted the extensive, unnecessary media festival surrounding the work that included a press conference and a press statement, which made the desecration of the Shabbat worse.”Gafni told Haaretz Saturday that the work “could have been done on a regular day, not on Shabbat. It looks like lying is part of Katz’s profession.”At the construction site earlier Saturday evening, Katz told reporters that the work was “necessary and warranted” and that he refused to cancel them “despite the [religious] pressures.”Shas and UTJ held marathon talks on the issue overnight Thursday-Friday with Katz, and denied Friday reports that they had threatened a coalition crisis.The PMO announced this week the establishment of a committee to “boost coordination between the Transportation Ministry and the religious factions.”The committee will be headed by Netanyahu’s chief of staff, and will include the director general of the Transportation Ministry, the police commissioner, and ministers from the religious faction or their representatives.Last year, then-economy minister Deri ordered a halt to all Shabbat construction on the line, in a move that Israel Railways warned would delay the project by two years.Construction on the express railway between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem was originally set to be completed by late 2017 or early 2018.Army Radio said at the time that Deri’s decision was the result of a dispute between the Economy Ministry and the Transportation Ministry. The Economy Ministry maintained the railway had to obtain special labor permits from the Transportation Ministry to work on Shabbat. The Transportation Ministry, meanwhile, said that the permits fall under the sole jurisdiction of the Economy Ministry.The Economy Ministry defended the decision, telling the Ynet news website at the time that Israel Railways was bound by law to seek special Shabbat permits and had not done so.The railway authority said the move would effectively set back the NIS 6 billion ($1.5 billion) project — which began in 2001 — until 2020.

IDF opens probe into death of Palestinian said to have charged at troops-Iyad Hamad, 38, most likely did not pose a threat to the soldiers in pillbox near Silwad, according to initial investigation-By Times of Israel staff August 27, 2016, 10:09 pm

The IDF’s Military Police Investigative Unit opened an official investigation into the shooting death Friday of a Palestinian man after he allegedly charged at troops in a guard post near the West Bank settlement of Ofra, north of Ramallah.Preliminary reports say the suspect most likely did not pose a threat to the soldiers, according to Haaretz and Channel 10.Palestinian medical officials say Silwad resident Iyad Hamad, 38, a father of three, was shot in the back. Hamad is said to have suffered from mental illness and was receiving psychiatric treatment, Hebrew media reported.According to the IDF, troops stationed outside Silwad identified a suspect running toward them and opened fire, killing him. Initial reports Friday said the man had opened fire on the post and Israeli troops returned fire, but the IDF later said it appeared that the suspect was not armed when he approached the guard post.He did not heed the soldiers’ repeated orders to halt and was shot, Army Radio reported. The IDF probe is said to confirm that Hamad did not respond to warning shots and kept running toward the pillbox.“He was a very simple man. Either he got lost and tried to get to the mosque through a dirt road. We don’t know, but it is clear that there was no need to shoot him. He didn’t pose a threat to anyone, a relative, Walid Hamad told Haaretz Saturday.Channel 2 reported that troops were on high alert since earlier this week amid reports that a Palestinian suspect had disappeared from his home, with the intention of carrying out a terror attack. The alert was cancelled on Friday morning.

2 Palestinians arrested with knives at West Bank checkpoints-Young woman detained at Qalandiya, 18-year-old nabbed in Hebron; IDF arrests fisherman off northern Gaza coast-By Times of Israel staff August 27, 2016, 2:06 pm

Israeli security forces arrested two young Palestinians on Saturday at checkpoints in separate locations in the West Bank, both carrying knives.At the Qalandiya checkpoint just north of Jerusalem, a young Palestinian woman was arrested Saturday afternoon after she was found to be carrying a knife in her bag.The blade was discovered during a security inspection as the woman, said to be in her 20s, tried to pass through the checkpoint on foot.At around the same time, Border Police officers stopped an 18-year-old youth at a checkpoint close to the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron, south of Jerusalem.According to Israeli reports, the officers stopped the youth at the checkpoint to carry out a thorough search, which led to the discovery of the knife hidden on his person.The youth is thought to have been planning a stabbing attack in revenge for the death of his cousin, who was fatally shot as he himself carried out a knife attack six months ago.Both suspects were taken away for questioning.The two incidents are the second and third arrests this week of Palestinians in possession of a knife in the West Bank. A woman was detained Wednesday near the Tomb of the Patriarchs, a police spokesperson said. She was handed over to security forces for questioning.A Palestinian man was shot dead by IDF troops Friday morning when he ran toward a guard post near the West Bank settlement of Ofra, north of Ramallah.Also Saturday, Israeli naval forces arrested a Palestinian fisherman off the northern Gaza coast, close to the Israeli border.Army Radio quoted Gaza sources as saying that the Israeli forces attempted to arrest other fisherman, but they managed to flee.Thirty-five Israelis and four foreign nationals have been killed in a wave of Palestinian terrorism and violence since last October. Over 200 Palestinians have been killed in that time period, most of them while carrying out knife, gun or car-ramming attacks, Israeli authorities say.

In Hebron, Fatah faces a civil war at the polls-While Hamas has a low profile, and just as low stakes, in upcoming local elections, its Palestinian rival is trying to keep other moderates from splitting the secular vote, and preparing for the worst if it doesn‘t succeed-By Avi Issacharoff August 28, 2016, 3:32 am-the times of israel

Wednesday noon, downtown Hebron. Registration for the various slates for the local elections will be closing in roughly 36 hours, and it is hard to sense anything special in the air. Those who see themselves as candidates are meeting with their advisers and their friends in anticipation of the official announcement of their candidacy, but no election posters have yet gone up in the West Bank city.The well-known restaurants here — Al-Khalil, Abu Mazen, the Pasha’s Palace — are full of customers, and one would be hard-pressed to say that the residents are all that excited about the municipal elections planned for October 8.The talk of the day, of all things, is an incident that took place here just about two weeks ago, when an argument between two kids devolved into a deadly armed battle between two clans in the city.Yet although the public in Hebron seems somewhat indifferent to the elections, for the Fatah party, tensions are as high as the stakes.These are the first elections in more than a decade in which voting is taking place at the same time in both Gaza and the West Bank, and Hamas and Fatah are going head-to-head against one another.Whatever the result may be, it will affect not only the status of these organizations but also of their leaders, and could even seep into the relationship between the Palestinians and Israel.While these elections are local, and won’t directly change anything politically or security-related between Israel and the Palestinian, a sweeping win by the hardline Islamist movement Hamas is still liable to ramp up the amount of suspicion and lack of trust between the two peoples.As in the other cities in the West Bank, the trouble in Hebron is that because there are so many secular slates of candidates, there is a reasonable chance that the more moderate camp of Fatah and groups of their ilk will split the secular vote, paving the way for victory by Hamas candidates.For Hamas’s leaders in Gaza and abroad, the vote marks an extraordinary opportunity to take stock of where public opinion stands.But fear of arrests by Israel or the Palestinian Authority have kept Hamas from openly running their members for office in the municipalities, forcing the movement to content itself with semi-independent figures who are known as Hamas supporters.The flip side is that should Hamas lose at the polls, the movement will be able to claim that the lists it ran were not really part of the group, exposing it to less potential damage in the vote than Fatah.Like the parliamentary elections of 2006, these elections are more liable to show the degree of weakness of Fatah and the secular camp than the strength of Hamas.-Where enemies become friends, and friends enemies-One need only travel to nearby Yatta to see what the risks of Fatah and the other moderates tearing themselves to bits looks like in action.A 20-minute drive from Hebron, Yatta is a town that has metastasized into something resembling a city of 120,000 people.Although the elections are a month and a half away, the fighting has already begun. Attacks, violence, threats and the like have been reported, mainly between groups considered to be associated or affiliated with Fatah.Hamas has refrained from running a list under its own name in Yatta. As in other locales, its leaders are in no hurry to present their candidates for fear of Israeli or Palestinian security. But they are promoting figures who are identified with them on independent or semi-independent lists.One of those candidate slates is the Joint List, headed by outgoing mayor Musa al-Muhamra, who resigned from his position just last week to run in the election.If his last name is familiar to readers, its because the two terrorists who opened fire inside a restaurant at the Sarona entertainment center in Tel Aviv are from the same clan, and the ruins of their demolished home can be seen fairly close to his own.“My list contains representatives from the Arab Liberation Front, the Popular Front,” Muhamra says. “Several political movements are represented there. My list contains [representatives from] Hamas as independent representatives.”In the past, Muhamra was a member of the People’s Party movement, which is considered left-wing, but quit over its support of the Oslo Accords in 1993. His lefty past makes him an odd bedfellow for Hamas, and shows the length to which the movement is willing to go in order to see its candidates defeat Fatah.The threat to Fatah is real enough that COGAT commander Maj. Gen. Yoav Mordechai, who heads the Israeli Defense Ministry body which administers the West Bank, and top Shin Bet officials even warned high-ranking PA officials that holding the elections could be a dangerous gamble.But PA President Mahmoud Abbas has insisted on holding the elections on schedule in order to demonstrate the existence of even a shred of democracy in the territories.When I asked Muhamra about Israel’s connection with the local elections, he could hardly stem the flow of words.“Unfortunately, there is more than one sign that [Israel] is interfering with the Palestinian elections, using people who are connected with the Israeli Civil Administration and also through direct interference by the State of Israel and its mechanisms to influence the elections.”When asked if that means people are being “pushed” as candidates by Israel, he says “exactly.”“It is pushing people, and it is playing a role in heating up the security situation and in the change that took place in the security situation on the Palestinian street as a result of this unfair and wrong interference,” he says.Asked to explain how they are interfering, though, he answers in generalities, accusing Israel of using Palestinians who used liaise with the Civil Administration as agents to do its bidding.“It interferes in everything that happens on the Palestinian street that has to do with elections and acts to keep Palestinian citizens from voting freely in the local elections,” he says. “Everybody knows that. It’s known on the street and in the Palestinian Authority that Israel is interfering directly in the elections. It has a certain specific attitude toward the various candidates.”While Muhamra uses the term “Mordechai’s friends” again and again to refer to the colleagues of the COGAT commander , he never mentions the name of Ismail Abu Hamid, the other candidate, who is at the center of a political furor in Yatta.Abu Hamid was mayor of Yatta until 1995. When the Palestinian Authority came into being, he left his position but is now considering running for mayor again.Abu Hamid, who has Israeli citizenship, is the owner of a large fuel station at the entrance to the town. “I have a home in Beit Safafa,” he says, referring to a neighborhood in East Jerusalem, as well as businesses in the territories and in Israel.A Hamas member he is not and posters denouncing him as a collaborator with Israel were put up all over town.When we meet him, he is surrounded by people, and says his decision will come in the next few hours. (Indeed, the next day he filed as a candidate). Some are trying to help him decide, while others appear to be guarding him for fear that someone might try to harm him.Abu Hamid says that his people had found the ones who were putting up the posters. “They fired a shot at me, but my cousins managed to get the gun away from them and hand it over to the Preventive Security Service,” he says.What he leaves out is the fact that the people putting up the posters were member of Fatah who did not want to see Abu Hamid run in the elections and split the moderate vote.“They put up posters against me saying that I was an agent, a member of Hamas, a member of the Civil Administration, that Israel had sent me. It is known who is responsible for these posters, but the PA is not taking any action. It’s not doing a thing. I demand that the PA act on the issue and prosecute all those responsible,” he says.He says time and again that no Israeli ever spoke to him about the topic, and attacks everyone who criticized him for his connection with Israel.“There is security coordination, after all,” he says, referring to cooperation between Israel and the Palestinian Authority on security matters in the West Bank. “There is coordination with the PA. So they’re attacking me for my own connection with Israel?”-Threat level: Moderate-It’s not only in Yatta that Fatah faces a threat from a candidate likely to nab votes from its clutches.One of the most popular radio stations in Hebron is al-Huriya (Liberty), headed by journalist Ayman al-Qawasmeh. Just 43 years old, Qawasmeh is considered a key figure in the city and the district. One can see photographs of Yasser Arafat in his office, as well as the Palestine soccer cup that the Al-Ahli soccer club from Hebron won only several weeks ago in a game against the team from Khan Yunis.Qawasmeh, who reopened the station in April after IDF troops shuttered it for for incitement to violence in November, has put his name up for mayor, leading a list of candidates entitled The Martyr Fahd al-Qawasmeh, named for the mayor of Hebron in the 1970s who was assassinated in Amman in 1984.Qawasmeh says the decision to run was not made by him.“The heads of 19 of the city’s families met in the Harat a-Sheikh [a neighborhood] and chose me,” he tells me.When I ask him whether the list will represent only his clan, he assures me that it contains representatives of many other families.“We took into account the city’s geographical division into many neighborhoods and the division into clans, and we chose people of extraordinary quality,” says Qawasmeh,.Known in the past as being closer to Fatah, Qawasmeh now says he is trying to distance himself from the movement, and demurs when asked even if he defines himself as Hamas or Fatah.“We define our movement as representing the people on the street, who actually represent the majority. Forty percent of the people belong to the movements, while 60% have no connection with, and are not members of, any group. Those people are our constituency,” he says.Our representatives are members of the new generation, he adds. We have brought in new faces. Our list contains more than one woman, he says proudly.He admits that he was pressured not to run, but repeats “The decision to run for mayor was made for me.”As we speak, it is still not clear who from Hamas or Fatah will run against him come October. But from a look at the candidates on his list, which includes friends gathered in his office, it’s clear, as in the case of Abu Hamid, he’ll steal more votes from Fatah.

Canada’s former PM Stephen Harper quits politics-Ex-Tory leader, known for being staunch Israel supporter, leaves public life 10 months after losing election to Justin Trudeau-By Michel COMTE August 26, 2016, 10:20 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL

OTTAWA, Canada (AFP) — Canada’s former prime minister Stephen Harper announced Friday he was quitting politics, 10 months after voters tossed his Tories out of office in a general election.The awkward career-politician, who was more at home plowing through economic theory than glad-handing voters on the campaign trail, said in a statement that he was stepping down as a member of parliament after nearly 18 years of public service.Harper took a strong pro-Israel stand, visiting the country for the first time in 2014 as a guest of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.Summarizing the previous Tory government’s accomplishments over nearly 10 years with him at the helm, Harper pointed to tax cuts, stiffer criminal sentences, and steering the economy “through the worst global recession since the Great Depression” in 2008.Of the Group of Seven industrialized nations, he noted, Canada “came out in the strongest position of them all.”Harper’s spokeswoman Anna Tomala said the former prime minister has formed a consulting group to provide advice to international clients.“The firm will work in tech, finance, energy, infrastructure and manufacturing along [with] other files, in the US, Europe, Middle East and Asia,” she said in an email.Regulatory documents show Harper created a company last December called Harper & Associates Consulting Inc. with former aides Ray Novak and Jeremy Hunt.-After Harper-Since his party’s defeat at the hands of Justin Trudeau’s Liberals on October 19, 2015, Harper has kept a low profile, appearing only once in public in May at a Tory rally in Vancouver.It was the first time he addressed his party and Canadians since his election defeat, and the last time as an elected politician.In a campaign-style stump speech, he told the party: “The past is no place to linger” and “the best is yet to come.”The partisan crowd responded with a standing ovation.The Tories are scheduled to pick his successor in May 2017.Thank you to Calgarians and Canadians for having given me the honour of serving the best country in the world. pic.twitter.com/afidHZ9xgr— Stephen Harper (@stephenharper) August 26, 2016-During his years in politics, Harper united the political right and led three successive governments since 2006 before he was defeated in a come-from-behind Liberal landslide last October.He rejected the Kyoto Protocol climate agreement, more than doubled the number of free trade deals with other nations, including with the European Union, and posted the largest budget deficit in Canadian history in an effort to counter the 2008 global economic slump, before balancing the budget in his last term.Much of Harper’s key crime legislation, including mandatory minimum jail sentences, however, has been rolled back by the courts, or currently faces legal challenges.After the last October election results came in, Harper immediately stepped down as Conservative leader, but continued to represent his Calgary electoral district.Harper leaves behind a party in need of a fresh face and bold new ideas if it hopes to defeat Prime Minister Trudeau and his Liberals at the next ballot in 2019.Pundits suggested shunning Harper policies, notably his dismissive approach to climate change, while others have urged the party to track to the political middle to appeal to a broader electorate.So far, a handful of contenders have launched bids to succeed Harper as leader, including former foreign affairs minister and libertarian Maxime Bernier; physician Kellie Leitch, who was close to the late finance minister Jim Flaherty; former Treasury Board president Tony Clement and backbench MP Michael Chong.

Israeli fans in France greeted with Palestinian flags, Israeli flags banned-aug 26,16-jpost

Security measures had been stepped up ahead of the Europa League soccer match between St. Etienne and Beitar Jerusalem in France on Thursday.After much talk over the high security risks at Thursday nights Europa League soccer match between St. Etienne and Beitar Jerusalem in France Beitar supporters arrived to the stadium to find they were not allowed to enter with Israeli flags, Israeli sports news website One reported.The fans were then greeted with not only French flags but Palestinian flags as well, marking the second time in as many weeks that an Israeli soccer team was greeted abroad with Palestinian flags.Ahead of the game authorities were preparing for a high risk of violence, according to French media.There was a ban on the sale and consumption of alcohol within a safety zone around the Geoffroy-Guichard stadium as well as a ban of pyrotechnics around the venue.Security measures had been stepped up ahead of the Europa League soccer match between St. Etienne and Beitar Jerusalem in France on Thursday.Pro-Palestinian activists have called for a rally outside of St. Etienne’s City Hall, using the Israeli team’s presence as an opportunity to protest Israeli policies.There was a known a possibility that St. Etienne’s “Green Angels,” the French club’s fan group, will make their presence felt with around 200 to 300 people at the rally.“La Familia,” Beitar Jerusalem’s group of staunch supporters, has drawn condemnation over the years for its extremist outlook. The group is known to foster anti-Arab sentiments.In July, over 400 police officers performed an operation arresting 47 members of the group on suspicion of intent to bring pyrotechnics to matches and illegal weapons trafficking.Thursday’s measures came after Scotland’s Celtic team supporters greeted the Hapoel Beersheba team with Palestinian flags during a match earlier this month, for which the Union of European Football Associations took disciplinary action against the team from Glasgow.

2 Palestinians arrested with knives at West Bank checkpoints-Young woman detained at Qalandiya, 18-year-old nabbed in Hebron; IDF arrests fisherman off northern Gaza coast-By Times of Israel staff August 27, 2016, 2:06 pm

Israeli security forces arrested two young Palestinians on Saturday at checkpoints in separate locations in the West Bank, both carrying knives.At the Qalandiya checkpoint just north of Jerusalem, a young Palestinian woman was arrested Saturday afternoon after she was found to be carrying a knife in her bag.The blade was discovered during a security inspection as the woman, said to be in her 20s, tried to pass through the checkpoint on foot.At around the same time, Border Police officers stopped an 18-year-old youth at a checkpoint close to the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron, south of Jerusalem.According to Israeli reports, the officers stopped the youth at the checkpoint to carry out a thorough search, which led to the discovery of the knife hidden on his person.The youth is thought to have been planning a stabbing attack in revenge for the death of his cousin, who was fatally shot as he himself carried out a knife attack six months ago.Both suspects were taken away for questioning.The two incidents are the second and third arrests this week of Palestinians in possession of a knife in the West Bank. A woman was detained Wednesday near the Tomb of the Patriarchs, a police spokesperson said. She was handed over to security forces for questioning.A Palestinian man was shot dead by IDF troops Friday morning when he ran toward a guard post near the West Bank settlement of Ofra, north of Ramallah.Also Saturday, Israeli naval forces arrested a Palestinian fisherman off the northern Gaza coast, close to the Israeli border.Army Radio quoted Gaza sources as saying that the Israeli forces attempted to arrest other fisherman, but they managed to flee.Thirty-five Israelis and four foreign nationals have been killed in a wave of Palestinian terrorism and violence since last October. Over 200 Palestinians have been killed in that time period, most of them while carrying out knife, gun or car-ramming attacks, Israeli authorities say.

Fatah said to beg Abbas: Cancel local elections, Hamas will win West Bank-TV report: Officials say victory for terror group will mean demise of president’s party, while Israel fears PA could be discredited by electoral loss-By Times of Israel staff August 26, 2016, 8:03 pm

Officials in Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah party have reportedly called on him to cancel upcoming municipal elections in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, fearing that rival jihadist group Hamas will secure an overwhelming victory.Fatah and Hamas are locked in a high-stakes struggle ahead of the October 8 vote. Abbas’s Fatah movement currently holds power in the West Bank, where he heads the Palestinian Authority, while Hamas has ruled Gaza since it ousted Fatah in a bloody 2007 coup. A year earlier, in elections for the Palestinian parliament, Hamas won 74 of 132 seats, and Fatah just 45.Channel 2 television reported Friday that leading Fatah officials have told Abbas that they face defeat to Hamas in the West Bank and that this will mean “the destruction” of Fatah.The report also said that members of the PA security forces are trying to intimidate some Hamas candidates in the West Bank into ending their election bids. Candidate lists are due to close in the coming days.Israel is also concerned that Hamas will sweep the West Bank voting, thereby undermining the legitimacy of the PA, Channel 2 said.Officials close to Abbas earlier this week accused the Israeli leadership of hoping for a Hamas win. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman “are convinced we are going to lose and thus want these elections,” the officials told The Times of Israel. “They desire a victory for Hamas, as this would prove their allegations that there is no one to talk to” on the Palestinian side, they said.Despite concerns that Hamas could make significant gains in the polls, and with Hamas recently threatening to boycott the elections over the arrests of its members in the West Bank, those officials said there was no intention of canceling or postponing the voting.“Fatah has a reasonable chance of winning,” the officials told The Times of Israel. “The decision to go to the polls has tightened the ranks, and we are working intensely to prevent any splits or internal conflicts.”Fatah sources noted, with some surprise, that even those Fatah politicians affiliated with longtime Abbas rival Mohammad Dahlan appeared intent on maintaining unity, in order to bolster the party’s chances to defeat Hamas.According to local opinion polls and political experts, Hamas — which has been enjoying unusual popularity in the West Bank and maintains a strong base of support in Gaza — is expected to make significant gains in the upcoming elections for local councils.Avi Issacharoff contributed to this report.

Who is fighting who in Syria?-What started out as a series of peaceful protests in 2011 has become a full-fledged civil war involving numerous local and international powers-By AFP August 27, 2016, 5:50 am-the times of israel

BEIRUT, Lebanon — Syria’s conflict broke out in March 2011 with peaceful protests against President Bashar Assad’s government but has evolved into a complex war involving jihadist groups and regional and international powers.Over 290,000 people have been killed and more than half of Syria’s population displaced in the conflict, which Turkey entered this week, dispatching troops to battle the Islamic State (IS) jihadist group and halt the advance of Kurdish forces.Who is fighting who? — Regime against rebels —The main battleline pits the approximately 300,000 soldiers of the Syrian army, and allied forces, against myriad rebel groups and Syrian and foreign jihadists.The largest anti-regime rebel alliance is the Army of Conquest, grouping Islamist factions like Ahrar al-Sham and Faylaq al-Sham with jihadists such as Fateh al-Sham Front, previously Al-Qaeda affiliate Al-Nusra Front.The biggest battlefront at present is Aleppo city, divided between government and opposition control but surrounded by loyalist forces.The government is also fighting to retake control of Eastern Ghouta, next to Damascus, which is largely controlled by the Jaish al-Islam rebel group.— Regime against IS —Syria’s army has fought IS in several parts of the country, expelling the jihadists from the ancient city of Palmyra in March.— Regime against Kurds —Syria’s Kurds have largely stayed out of the conflict between the government and armed opposition, but in August regime aircraft bombed Kurdish forces for the first time in Hasakeh, a city jointly controlled by the regime and Kurds.Kurdish forces now hold 90 percent of Hasakeh.— Kurds against IS —Syria’s Kurds have carved out a semi-autonomous region in north and northeastern Syria, with their People’s Protection Units (YPG) becoming a key partner of the US-led coalition fighting IS.Since January 2015, the YPG has ousted IS from the key towns of Kobane and Manbij in Aleppo province, Tal Abyad in Raqa province, and large parts of Hasakeh province.The YPG is also the key component of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which groups diverse factions battling IS.— IS against rebels —IS considers all those who fail to pledge allegiance to its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi its foes and has battled rebel groups and even rival jihadists.Rebels backed by Turkey participated in this week’s capture of the border town of Jarabulus from IS.Who supports whom? — Regime —The army is bolstered by 200,000 irregular forces, notably from the National Defense Forces. It also fights alongside between 5,000-8,000 forces from Lebanon’s powerful Shiite militia Hezbollah, as well as Iranian, Iraqi and Afghan fighters.Russia, a key regime backer, began an aerial campaign in support of Assad’s government last September and has helped Damascus recapture areas in several provinces.Iran is another key ally, providing financial and military support.— Rebels —Opposition factions deemed “moderate” are backed by the West, particularly the United States, France and the UK, though the forces have accused their supporters of providing insufficient support.Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar also back the opposition, and they have also lent support to Islamist factions.— Kurds —Syria’s Kurds are key partners of the anti-IS coalition headed by Washington, but Turkey considers the YPG to be a branch of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), which Ankara brands a “terror” group.— Jihadists —No country openly backs the jihadists of Fateh al-Sham and IS, although the latter has been able to rely on funds from taxation and resources in the territory it holds in Syria and Iraq.-Who controls what?— Regime —Syria’s government holds around 35% of the country, including strategic areas such as the capital Damascus, central Homs and Hama, the coast, and large parts of Aleppo. Sixty percent of the population lives under its rule.— IS —Despite setbacks since 2015, IS controls around 35% of Syria, much of it uninhabited. It dominates Deir Ezzor province on the Iraqi border and Raqa province. It is also present in a number of other regions.— Kurds —Kurdish forces hold around 18% of the country, including three-quarters of the Syrian-Turkish border. They have declared a federal region in areas under their control.— Fateh al-Sham, other rebels —Fateh al-Sham and other rebel forces hold some 12% of the country. The largest expanse is in Idlib province and controlled by the Army of Conquest alliance.What are the goals of each party?— Regime —President Assad has said he wants to retake the whole country and will not stand down.— Rebels —Rebel forces seek to oust Assad, though factions differ on their vision for the country, with Fateh al-Sham aspiring to an Islamic emirate.— Kurds —The Kurds seek an autonomous region in areas where they form a majority.— IS —IS seeks to expand its self-proclaimed “caliphate” in territory under its control in Syria and Iraq.— United States —Washington has called on Assad to step down, but its efforts are now focused on combating IS.— Russia —Moscow insists Assad will not be ousted, and seeks a diplomatic victory by competing with Washington to shape negotiations between the regime and rebels.— Iran —Tehran seeks to protect key ally Assad, and assert its role in the Arab world.— Turkey —Ankara backs the opposition, but is currently focused on preventing the Kurds from creating a contiguous autonomous region.

Danish women-led mosque holds first Friday prayers-Imam Saliha Marie Fetteh leads sermon at Mariam Mosque funded by Danish-born Sherin Khankan-By AFP August 27, 2016, 1:17 am-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL

COPENHAGEN, Denmark — Scandinavia’s first female-led mosque has held its first Friday prayers in Copenhagen, a milestone for an “Islamic feminist” project whose founder hopes will help combat Islamophobia.But there was also criticism that the project did not go far enough in promoting women’s rights.The khutba, or sermon, was held in the Mariam Mosque in an apartment in a busy Copenhagen shopping street six months after it opened.Temperatures soared inside on a balmy summer’s day as more than 60 women, around half of them Muslim, came to hear Danish-born imam Saliha Marie Fetteh.Friday’s event was opened by the mosque’s founder Sherin Khankan, who is herself becoming an imam.Sherin Khankan-Starts a Mosque in Denmark led Exclusively by Female Imams-It is open to Men too pic.twitter.com/NItRvrSSFW— Özer Khalid ☄ (@OzerKhalid) August 11, 2016-She said that she had originally wanted to open a mosque where female imams could preach on Fridays to a mixed crowd, but later changed her mind.“It turned out that a majority of the community wanted a Friday prayer for women only,” Khankan, born in Denmark to a Syrian father and a Finnish mother, told AFP.“Today I am very happy about the decision because when you try to create change it’s very important that you do it wisely and slowly,” she added.The decision to bar men from the prayers drew criticism from Syria-born Danish lawmaker Naser Khader, who told broadcaster TV 2 that it was not “good enough” in a country like Denmark — known for having a high level of gender equality — to shy away from letting women preach to a mixed crowd.Five Islamic marriage ceremonies have been conducted at the mosque, which has issued its own marriage contract.Under the agreement women have the right to divorce, polygamy is prohibited, men and women have equal rights to their children in case of a divorce, and the marriage is annulled in the event of mental or physical violence.The mosque’s aim was also to fight Islamophobia by showing Muslim women could “take the lead,” Khankan said.Similar projects exist in a handful of other countries, including in the US where “The Women’s Mosque of America” opened in Los Angeles last year.

Ahead in polls, Dutch far-right party vows to close mosques, ban Quran-Geert Wilders’ Freedom Party, set to double its seats in elections next year, wants to close borders, reverse ‘Islamization’-By AFP August 26, 2016, 8:18 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL

THE HAGUE, Netherlands — The political party of Dutch far-right politician Geert Wilders, which is leading polls ahead of parliamentary elections next year, has vowed to close mosques and “ban the Quran” in its manifesto.“All mosques and Islamic schools closed, a ban on the Quran,” said the document outlining the electoral program of the Freedom Party (PVV) ahead of March 2017 legislative elections, which was posted on Wilders’ Twitter feed Thursday.Wilders’ manifesto was the first published by a major political party ahead of elections for the lower house of Dutch parliament which are due by March 15 next year.The PVV says it will reverse the “Islamization” of the country with a range of measures including closing the borders, shutting asylum seeker centers, banning migrants from Islamic countries and stopping Muslim women from wearing the headscarf in public.On the back of Europe’s migrant crisis, opinion polls have for months given Wilders’ PVV the edge over the current coalition parties of the Labor Party and the People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy led by Prime Minister Mark Rutte.Late last year polls predicted soaring support for the PVV saying it could gain as many as 38 seats in the 150-seat parliament. But that has slipped back. In August, a poll from Ipsos gave it 28 seats — still way up on the 12 it currently has.The immigrant crisis has polarized the Netherlands, a nation of 17 million people, leading to heated debate and some attacks on refugee centers.Wilders, who will go on trial for inciting racial hatred in October, also said he would do all he could to hold a referendum on the Netherlands leaving the EU, despite an unsuccessful first attempt in June following Britain’s shock Brexit vote.His party has also pledged to cut all foreign aid while boosting funding for police and security.— AP contributed to this report.

French resorts defiant as top court suspends burkini ban-Beach towns vow to continue fining women wearing full-body swimsuit despite court ruling overturning the ‘clearly illegal’ restriction-By Claudine Renaud and Aurelia End August 27, 2016, 4:59 pm-the times of israel

MARSEILLE, France (AFP) — French resorts were defiant after a ban on the burkini in a Riviera town was overturned, vowing to keep the restrictions in place and continue imposing fines on women who wear the full-body swimsuit.In a judgement expected to lead to bans being overturned in around 30 coastal towns, the State Council, France’s highest administrative court, ruled Friday the measure was a “serious and clearly illegal violation of fundamental freedoms.”The suspension of the ban on the Islamic swimsuit, which has triggered a fierce debate in France and sparked critical headlines around the world, was welcomed by the UN, and a French Muslim group said it was a “victory for common sense.”But the ruling, which only applied to the ban imposed by Villeneuve-Loubet, was quickly dismissed by several other towns, including Nice.In its decision, the court said local authorities could only introduce measures restricting individual freedoms if wearing the swimsuit on beaches represented a “proven risk” to public order.The judges said there was no such risk in the case before the court concerning Villeneuve-Loubet, a resort between Nice and Cannes.Police action to fine Muslim women for wearing burkinis on beaches in several towns, including in the tourist resorts of Nice and Cannes, has triggered a fierce debate about women’s rights and the French state’s strictly-guarded secularism.“From now on, it is up to everyone to take responsibility for cooling off, which is the only way to avoid public order disturbances and to try and live together,” Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said.-Restrictions ‘still valid’-But the ruling provoked defiance from several Riviera resorts, which pledged to continue imposing fines.In recent weeks, around 30 French municipalities decided to ban access to public beaches “by anyone not wearing proper attire, which is respectful of good morality and the principle of secularism and not respectful of the rules of hygiene and bathing security.”Nice town hall said it would “continue to fine” women wearing the burkini and the far-right mayor of Frejus, David Rachline, insisted his ban was “still valid”, telling AFP there was “no legal procedure” against his ruling.Ange-Pierre Vivoni, Socialist mayor of the Corsican town of Sisco, said his burkini ban, introduced this month following a confrontation between Moroccan bathers and locals, would also remain “for the safety of property and people in the town because I risked having deaths on my hands.”Amnesty International said Friday’s court decision had “drawn an important line in the sand.”“These bans do nothing to increase public safety but do a lot to promote public humiliation,” said Amnesty’s Europe director John Dalhuisen, who added it was time that the French authorities “drop the pretence” that the ban was about protecting women’s rights.The debate has split both the left and the right, with former president Nicolas Sarkozy calling for a nationwide ban on the burkini, while former premier Alain Juppe has expressed opposition to “an exceptional law”.-‘Fundamental debate’-The ruling Socialists are also divided, with Education Minister Najat Vallaud-Belkacem and Health Minister Marisol Touraine concerned over the “drift” in the local orders, while Prime Minister Manuel Valls backed the mayors.He stuck to his guns Friday evening, saying the State Council’s ruling “does not end the debate which has been opened.”“It is a fundamental debate, which follows on from others,” he said, recalling that France was the first country in Europe to ban the full veil in public spaces in 2010. The headscarf was banned from schools in 2004.Anger over the issue was further inflamed this week when photographs in the British media showed police surrounding a woman in a headscarf on a beach in Nice.The mayor’s office denied the woman had been forced to remove clothing, telling AFP she was showing police the swimsuit she was wearing under her top, over a pair of leggings, when the picture was taken.In its ruling, the State Council said: “The emotion and the concerns arising from terrorist attacks, especially the attack in Nice on July 14, are not sufficient to legally justify a ban.”

No contest: GOP is the pro-Israel party-Bipartisan support for the Jewish state is a fallacy: Republicans embrace Israel as an ally, Democrats do not-By Jeff Ballabon and Bruce Abramson August 27, 2016, 1:45 pm-the times of israel

WASHINGTON (JTA) — For years, the leaders of America’s most established Jewish organizations – AIPAC chief among them — have assured their members that when it came to Israel, there wasn’t much difference between the Democratic and Republican parties. Even suggesting that control of the White House or Congress might matter to the US-Israel relationship was taboo, often decried as “anti-Israel” if not “anti-Semitic.”The 2016 platform debates and conventions have shattered this outlandish insistence that in our hyperpartisan era, Israel policy somehow managed to remain neutral territory. It is now indisputable that the parties have radically different views of Israel.To the extent that any bipartisanship persists, it is only among the least pro-Israel Republicans and the most pro-Israel Democrats. According to their “less than comprehensively anti-Israel” view, Israelis and Arabs are more or less equally culpable, Israel must risk its national security and the lives of its citizens, and an independent, Judenrein Arab state in the historic Jewish heartland is an imperative.Though the politicians on both sides of the aisle backing this vision may see themselves as pragmatic, moderate centrists looking out for Israel’s interests, what they actually advocate is rejecting Israel’s status as a favored ally, ignoring history and law, and capitulating to Arab intransigence and inhumanity.Moreover, the bases of both parties reject this view. The Republican base sees no moral equivalence between Israelis building a pluralistic, liberal democracy of which all decent people should be proud and the Palestinian Authority presiding over a genocidal, suicidal death cult. Members of the Democratic base, as we saw during their convention, reiterate the slanders of Jimmy Carter, Bernie Sanders and Cornel West, while some burned an Israeli flag in symbolic solidarity with the death cult whose own flags were proudly waved on the convention floor.West spoke for much of the Democratic base — and 43 percent of the platform committee — when he framed his antipathy for Israel as “a moral issue” and called for “an end to occupation and illegal settlements” and for “rebuild[ing] Gaza, which the UN warns could be uninhabitable by 2020.” Hillary Clinton’s politically savvy advisers, understanding that anti-Israel agitation would play poorly in the general election (overall, Americans still side with Israel over the Palestinians, 62 percent to 15 percent, according to a recent Gallup poll) preferred boilerplate language similar to the DNC’s 2012 platform: “Israelis deserve security, recognition, and a normal life free from terror and incitement. Palestinians should be free to govern themselves in their own viable state, in peace and dignity.” In short, a statement of moral equivalence.The Republicans had reluctantly accepted comparable boilerplate language in 2012, tempering far stronger pro-Israel sentiment among the base to accommodate AIPAC’s insistence that such moral equivalence reflected the American Jewish consensus. In 2016, however, the GOP resisted such pressure. The party’s base rallied behind a more definitively pro-Israel approach that embraces the moral superiority of Israel’s position and Israel’s unconditional sovereignty.It is this platform language — to which we proudly contributed — that Democrats and their enablers in establishment American Jewish groups have intentionally and repeatedly mischaracterized as standing “to the right of Netanyahu” in its “rejection of a two-state solution.” No one actually reading the words of the 2016 GOP platform plank on Israel could possibly reach these conclusions.The Republican platform’s actual language recognizes Israel as a fellow liberal democracy and a strategic ally; restates an existing American law declaring an indivisible Jerusalem as Israel’s capital; upholds our ally’s right to defend itself against military threats, terror attacks and other forms of warfare; labels as false the widely accepted canard that Israel is an “occupier,” and recognizes the anti-Semitism behind a Boycott, Divestment and Sanction (BDS) movement that has targeted Jewish interests far from Israel.It closes with a longing for “comprehensive and lasting peace” negotiated among the residents of the Middle East and opposes outside pressure designed to impose any specific proposal.That’s the sum and substance of what today’s Democrats consider extremism: acknowledging the rights of Jews in the Land of Israel, embracing a fellow liberal democracy and strategic ally, supporting its efforts to defend itself and encouraging it to negotiate with its neighbors.Nothing in the new GOP platform “rejects” or creates even the slightest impediment to a “two-state solution.” It simply refocuses American interests correctly — in support of our ally Israel’s sovereignty and security — rather than in pursuit of “self-determination” for a Palestinian Authority, the PLO’s legal and moral successor, that continues to incite and support terror and that has explicitly abandoned even the pretext of a “peace process.”The chasm between the parties is clear. Today’s Democrats are split among those who see moral equivalence between Israel and the P.A. and those who see Israel as a rogue apartheid state committing repeated war crimes against Palestinian victims. To the Republicans, Israel is a close and valued ally under unprecedented attack, worthy of the same commitment and support we extend to our closest allies. These views of Israel and the policy consequences that flow from them are very, very different.A bipartisan consensus that actually supports Israel remains a worthy ideal. As the 2016 conventions showed, it is very far from what we have today. Americans who care about Israel face a clear choice. There is no use pretending otherwise.—Jeff Ballabon is chairman of the Iron Dome Alliance and a senior fellow at the Center for Statesmanship and Diplomacy.
