Israel, US race to head off UN settlement ‘blacklist’ of major firms-Oft-criticized Human Rights Council ordered compilation of the database in March 2016; it could be used as a basis for future legal action-By Josef Federman, Josh Lederman and Jamey Keaten    -TOI-NOV 26,17

AP — Weeks ahead of the expected completion of a UN database of companies that operate in Israel’s West Bank settlements, Israel and the Trump Administration are working feverishly to prevent its publication.While Israel is usually quick to brush off UN criticism, officials say they are taking the so-called “blacklist” seriously, fearing its publication could have devastating consequences by driving companies away, deterring others from coming and prompting investors to dump shares of Israeli firms. Dozens of major Israeli companies, as well as multinationals that do business in Israel, are expected to appear on the list.“We will do everything we can to ensure that this list does not see the light of day,” Israel’s UN ambassador, Danny Danon, told The Associated Press.The UN’s top human rights body, the Human Rights Council, ordered the compilation of the database in March 2016, calling on UN rights chief Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein to “investigate the implications of the Israeli settlements on Palestinians.”The international community overwhelmingly considers the settlements, built on occupied land claimed by the Palestinians for a future state, to be illegal. Israel rejects such claims, citing the land’s strategic and religious significance, and says the matter should be resolved in negotiations.Israeli officials say that about 100 local companies that operate in the West Bank and East Jerusalem have received warning letters that they will be on the list. In addition, some 50 international companies, mostly American and European, also have been warned.The companies have not been publicly identified, but one official said they include Israeli banks, supermarkets, restaurant chains, bus lines and security firms, as well as international giants that provide equipment or services used to build or maintain settlements. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the matter with the media.The only company to confirm receiving a warning letter has been Bezeq, Israel’s national telephone company. Bezeq’s chief executive, Stella Handler, posted a copy of the letter sent by Zeid’s office in September on her Facebook page. It accused Bezeq of using West Bank land for infrastructure, providing phone and Internet services to settlements and operating sales offices in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.Handler angrily wrote that Bezeq provides service to all customers, regardless of race or where they live.“The council’s bias against Israel is so extreme that it has lost all relevance in the world,” she wrote. “We will not cooperate with a move that is all in all anti-Israeli propaganda.”But hours later, Handler removed the post, saying she had done so at the request of the government. The Israeli official confirmed the government has asked companies not to speak about the issue. Bezeq declined comment.Israel has long accused the United Nations, and particularly the rights council, of being biased against it.Israel is the only country that faces an examination of its rights record at each of the council’s three sessions each year. Some 70 resolutions, or about quarter of the council’s country-specific resolutions, have been aimed at Israel. That is nearly triple the number for the second-place country, Syria, where hundreds of thousands have been killed in a devastating six-year civil war.Israeli leaders and many non-governmental groups also complain that some of the world’s worst violators of human rights, including Venezuela, Saudi Arabia, Congo and Cuba, sit on the council.Some Western diplomats have said the database could set a harmful precedent by blurring the line between business and human rights on issues that are better left to trade policy than the Geneva council.Israel seems to have little leverage over the council. But its campaign has received a big boost from the United States. The Trump administration has taken a tough line against the UN, demanding reforms and in October, withdrawing from the cultural agency UNESCO because of alleged anti-Israel bias.In a speech to the council last June, US Ambassador Nikki Haley railed against its makeup and demanded that Israel be removed as a permanent fixture on its agenda. She also hinted that the US could quit the council.The upcoming release of the database could test that commitment. It has triggered a quiet, but high-stakes effort by Israel and the US to try to block its release.“We just view that type of blacklist as counterproductive,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said recently.Danon, the Israeli ambassador, accused the council of unfairly targeting Israel at a time of conflict throughout the world, saying it amounted to a “blacklist” of Jewish companies and those who do business with the Jewish state.He also said it would turn the rights council into “the world’s biggest promoter of BDS,” an acronym for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement — a Palestinian-founded international boycott movement against Israel. Most of the companies linked to the blacklist are frequent targets of the BDS movement.“What kind of message will this send?” Danon said.But Nabil Shaath, a senior Palestinian official, said the list is an “important step” moving from verbal condemnation to practical action against the settlements. He expressed hope that it would lead companies to stop doing business with the settlements and even lead to sanctions against those that continue.The original resolution calling for the list stipulates only that the council’s high commissioner is requested “to transmit the data therein in the form of a report” to the council.To that end, Israel and its allies have been encouraging the council to leave the list out and submit only a basic, broad-strokes report that doesn’t name names, according to several UN diplomats familiar with the discussions. The diplomats were not authorized to comment publicly and demanded anonymity.The pressure campaign has shown some signs of success. After an earlier delay, Zeid’s office said the release of the “report” has been pushed back again, from December to early next year.For now, it does not appear that the list’s publication would be the direct trigger that leads the US to quit the council. Haley’s office said it is focused on implementing reforms on the council, though publication of the list could make US participation “less likely.”Eugene Kontorovich, the director of international law at the Kohelet Policy Forum, a conservative think tank in Jerusalem, said he was “deeply skeptical” the report will not be published and said the Israeli government would be better off trying to discredit the report ahead of time. “I think it’s important for people to understand how bad this is,” he said.The resolution, he warned, would cause “reputational harm” to companies and put “a cloud over business in Israel.” Although nonbinding, he said it could be used as a basis for future legal action. “The goal of this is to cause problems for Israel,” he said.

Kushner’s White House role shrinks, leaving Mideast peace as main focus-Once ubiquitous in varied administration efforts, president's son-in-law now zeroing in on trying to restart Israeli-Palestinian negotiations-By Eric Cortellessa-TOI-NOV 26,17

WASHINGTON — In the last several months, Jared Kushner’s once-massive White House portfolio has shrunken, leaving his biggest responsibility to lead the administration’s efforts to broker a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians, according to a series of reports over the weekend.Kushner, who is both a senior adviser to US President Donald Trump and his son-in-law, took on a plethora of projects upon assuming his official role after the inauguration last January, despite having no policy or diplomatic experience.He was charged with not only trying to renew Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations, with the hope of eventually solidifying a groundbreaking accord, but also renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement, overseeing the US government’s attempts to alleviate the nation’s opioid epidemic and establishing the Office of American Innovation, an internal group dedicated to reducing government bureaucracy.Kushner, 36, and his wife Ivanka, who is Trump’s daughter, also had highly public roles and would often sit in on important meetings and take part in ensuing photo opportunities.But the days when Kushner had a sprawling set of responsibilities and free rein to walk in and out of the Oval Office whenever he wanted are over, according to separate reports published in The New York Times and The Washington Post on Saturday.These changes stem largely from John Kelly taking over as White House chief of staff from Reince Priebus in July, tasked with restoring order to a chaotic West Wing.One of Kelly’s first tasks was to fit all of the White House staff into a chain of command. No longer could the president’s closest confidants, such as Kushner, walk into the Oval Office at random. All meetings have to be arranged through him.“Jared works for me,” Kelly has told associates, The New York Times reported.According to the reports, there is a newfound understanding in White House circles that Kushner’s fingerprints will not be as ubiquitous as once they were, and that he will harness his energies primarily to trying to strike a peace agreement that has bedeviled generations of presidents and their foreign policy teams.“Jared’s portfolio is Israeli-Palestinian peace, and he respects what his lane is,” an official told The Washington Post.Trump himself also alluded to that issue being Kushner’s main concentration in an email chain from Friday that the White House forwarded to The New York Times.“Jared is working very hard on peace between Israel and the Palestinians, and the last thing I would ever do is get in the way of that possibility,” he said. “Jared has been very effective since the earliest days of the campaign and the same is true today.”A White House official, contacted by The Times of Israel, declined to comment on the reports.Kushner has been publicly involved in the peace efforts, shuttling to the region three times in the past year to meet with Israeli and Palestinian leaders. At the same time, special envoy Jason Greenblatt has been a near-constant presence on the ground as the administration tries to cobble together a plan to get the sides back to the negotiating table.In July, Kushner admitted that a peace deal might not be possible, in a leaked conversation with congressional interns.“So what do we offer that’s unique? I don’t know,” Kushner said in a recording obtained by Wired magazine. “We’re trying to work with the parties very quietly to see if there’s a solution. And there may be no solution, but it’s one of the problem sets that the president asked us to focus on.”Kushner’s allies told both papers the departures of several of his in-house rivals, like Priebus and former White House chief strategist and nationalist firebrand Steve Bannon, liberated Kushner to lend more of his focus to peacemaking and the Office of American Innovation.Even with those developments, however, the special investigation led by Robert Mueller into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives has occupied large portions of Kushner’s time and attention.That now includes Mueller’s team looking into his role during the transition and his contacts with Israeli officials when the Obama administration allowed passage of a UN Security Council resolution that condemned Israel’s ongoing settlement construction in the West Bank, The Wall Street Journal reported.Kushner has also been interviewed by congressional investigators who are scrutinizing Russia’s role in the 2016 election.Kelly, for his part, said that he never considered “getting rid of Jared and Ivanka,” which had been reported from a number of different outlets.Fending off rumors that were circulating this fall that they may try to head back to New York City, where they led comfortable lives, Kushner told The Washington Post that he and Ivanka plan to remain in the nation’s capital.“We’re here to stay,” Kushner said, explaining that he and Ivanka made this decision in July. “At the current moment, we’re charging forward … My wife asked me the other day if we should be looking at new houses, so that’s a good sign.”To explain his evolving White House role, Kushner alluded to a famous essay by the philosopher Isaiah Berlin, in which he divides thinkers into two categories, drawing from the Greek poet Archilochus, who said, “The fox knows many things but the hedgehog knows one big thing.”“During the campaign, I was more like a fox than a hedgehog. I was more of a generalist having to learn about and master a lot of skills quickly,” Kushner told The Washington Post.“When I got to DC, I came with an understanding that the problems here are so complex — and if they were easy problems, they would have been fixed before — and so I became more like the hedgehog, where it was more taking issues you care deeply about, going deep and devoting the time, energy and resources to trying to drive change.”

PA controls just 5% of Gaza, senior Abbas minister says-Hussein al-Sheikh: Hamas dragging its feet in handover of enclave to Palestinian Authority-By Dov Lieber-NOV 26,17-TOI

Palestinian Authority Minister of Civil Affairs Hussein al-Sheikh on Sunday said the PA government had assumed control of just five percent of the Gaza Strip, ahead of a looming December 1 deadline for the PA to take full control of the enclave as part of the intra-Palestinian reconciliation process.Fatah, which controls the PA, signed a deal with Hamas in Cairo last month that would see the terror group’s 10-year rule in the Gaza Strip come to a close by the end of November.Sheikh, however, accused Hamas of dragging its feet in implementing the accord.“The [PA] government until this moment, financially, administratively and security-wise, has not been set up [in Gaza] more than five percent,” Sheikh told the official PA newscast.He said Hamas has not permitted PA ministers to take control of their old offices in Gaza and thousands of former government employees who worked in Gaza ministries before Hamas’s takeover of the enclave in 2007 have not returned to work.The Palestinian minister also said the PA has not been able to set up an effective tax collection system, adding, that the Ramallah is “collecting crumbs” at the Kerem Shalom crossing with Israel.Sheikh, a confidant of PA President Mahmoud Abbas, also decried the situation at Gaza’s border crossings, which Hamas handed over to the PA on November 1.“Our crews are barefoot at the crossings,” he said, adding, “setting up the [PA government] at the crossings is compromised by the lack of security.”The Rafah border crossing between Gaza and Egypt was supposed to permanently open soon after the PA took over, but the crossing has for the most part remained closed. The Rafah crossing did reopen last Saturday for three days.Still, many consider the most difficult obstacle facing the reconciliation process to be the fate of Hamas’s 25,000-strong military wing.Abbas wants the PA to be in full control of all weapons and security in the Gaza Strip, but Hamas is refusing to give up its arsenal. Hamas, which seeks the destruction of Israel, has fought three wars with Israel since seizing power from Fatah in the enclave in 2007.Sheikh made it clear that the issue of Hamas’s weapons continues to be a major sticking point between the two sides.“Weapons are not a factional or an organizational issue. We will not allow anything but one gun and one law” in Gaza, said Sheikh, echoing previous statements by Abbas.Senior Hamas spokesperson Sami Abu Zurhi fired back at Sheikh’s comments on Twitter.“Hussein al-Sheikh’s statements regarding disarming the resistance from its weapons reflects ill intentions and is a repeat of the demand of the occupation,” Zuhri said, adding that Hamas’s disarmament is a “mere pipe dream.”Salah Bardawil, a senior member Hamas’s negotiating team with Fatah, also decried Sheikh’s statements.“You’ve received the ministries, the authorities and the border crossings. Show the people what’s the 95% you haven’t received,” he said.Last week, 13 Palestinian factions, including Hamas and Fatah, released a declaration from Cairo calling for legislative and presidential elections by the end of 2018.The declaration does not say the Palestinian factions agreed to elections, but merely “calls” for elections. Palestinians haven’t had presidential elections since 2005 and legislative elections since 2006, when Hamas won.Bardawil appeared in a video soon after the declaration was made public, calling the result of two days of meetings “lackluster.” He claimed US pressure on Fatah to turn away from the reconciliation was stalling the progress.Fatah immediately released a statement saying Bardawil’s claim about US pressure was “unfounded.”

Iran threatens to put Europe in missile range if threatened-Top general Hossein Salami says Iran has technology and can increase rocket range, as Paris pushes for talks over tests-By TOI staff-NOV 26,17

A top Iranian general warned Saturday that the country could increase its missile range beyond 2,000 kilometers if it feels threatened by Europe.Brig. Gen. Hossein Salami, head of the powerful Revolutionary Guards, also claimed Israel was afraid to go to war with Lebanese terror group Hezbollah because this would lead to the annihilation of the Jewish state.Salami said Iran could expand its missile range and had only not done so because it did not see Europe as a threat.“If we have kept the range of our missiles to 2,000 kilometers, it’s not due to lack of technology. … We are following a strategic doctrine,” he said, according to a Reuters translation of a Fars report.“So far we have felt that Europe is not a threat, so we did not increase the range of our missiles. But if Europe wants to turn into a threat, we will increase the range of our missiles,” he added.In October,  Revolutionary Guards Commander Ali Jafari acknowledged for the first time that Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has imposed limits on the country’s ballistic missile program.“Our missiles’ range is 2,000 kilometers, and that can be increased, but we believe this range is enough for the Islamic Republic as most of the US forces and most of their interests in the region are within this range,” Jafari said in comments carried by the Tasnim news agency and translated by Reuters.However, in 2015 Iran reportedly tested the Soumar missile, which can reach as far as 2,500 kilometers, putting southeastern Europe as far as Budapest in Tehran’s gunsights.France has led an effort for the European Union to confront Iran over continued ballistic missile tests, which have remained a point of contention after 2015’s landmark nuclear deal.Like Iran, the EU maintains that ballistic missile tests do not breach the nuclear deal. Israel, the US and others say they are in contravention of the accord, because the missiles be used to carry nuclear weapons.In an interview earlier this month, French president Emmanuel Macron called for vigilance towards Tehran over its ballistic missile program and regional activities.“It is important to remain firm with Iran over its regional activities and its ballistic program,” he said.Iran has responded by saying the accord and missile development are not up for negotiation.Salami also said the Saudis were trying to push Israel into war against Iranian proxy group Hezbollah, but Jerusalem was afraid to fight them.“The Zionist regime did not respond to this request and understood that any new war would lead to their disappearance,” he said, according to Fars.His statements echoed those of Jafari Thursday.“It is a proven claim that today we say any new war will lead to the eradication of the Zionist regime,” Jafari told Iranian reporters in Tehran according to semi-official media outlets.Also on Thursday, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei urged the Muslim world to fight “cancerous tumor” Israel.“Today, the issue of Palestine is the primary issue among the Muslim world, since it has been an Islamic country usurped and turned into a means of sabotaging the security of several countries in the region,” Khamenei tweeted. “This cancerous tumor [Zionist regime] should be fought against.Israel has raised alarm bells over Hezbollah and Iranian military activity in southern Syria and has vowed to protect the country from any provocation, including reportedly bombing advanced weapons transfers.Iran’s leaders routinely call for the demise of Israel. Iran funds, trains and arms terror groups in Gaza, the West Bank and Lebanon.Saudi Arabia has accused Iran and Hezbollah of working against its interests, including firing a rocket at Riyadh from Yemen which was shot down.Salami said Iran, which backs the Yemeni Houthi rebels, had nothing to do with the rocket, saying the Houthis had developed it themselves.

Amid tensions in Sinai, army says southern Israel rocket sirens a false alarm-Alarms sound in Kadesh Barnea and Nitzana as Egyptian military continues assault on IS Sinai targets in response to mosque massacre-By TOI staff and Judah Ari Gross-NOV 26,17

Rocket sirens that wailed Sunday in the western Negev were a false alarm, the IDF said, amid tensions along Israel’s border with the Sinai peninsula.The sirens sounded in the communities of Kadesh Barnea and Nitzana.The army did not say what triggered the false alarms, but previous false rocket sirens along the Israeli-Egyptian border have been triggered by internal fighting between the Egyptian Army and Islamic State-linked jihadists.Sunday’s sirens sounded as the Egyptian military continued its aerial assault on Islamic State targets in the Sinai Peninsula in response to a gun and bomb terror attack on a mosque in the desert region that took the lives of over 300 Muslim worshipers.According to the Egyptian state prosecution, up to 30 militants in camouflage flying the Islamic State group’s black banner surrounded the mosque and massacred the worshipers during weekly Friday prayers.Twenty-seven children were among the dead.IS has not claimed responsibility for the attack, but it is the main suspect as the mosque is associated with followers of the mystical Sufi branch of Sunni Islam whom it has branded heretics.Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi declared three days of mourning and vowed to “respond with brutal force” to the terror attack, among the deadliest in the world since the September 11, 2001, attacks on the United States.

Egypt upholds death sentences for 7 over beheadings, Islamic State links-Sentences handed down for murder of 21 Christians in Libya in 2015; 10 others given life in prison-By AFP-TOI-NOV 26,17

CAIRO, Egypt — An Egyptian court has upheld death sentences for seven people over the beheadings in Libya of 21 Christians, all but one from Egypt, and for belonging to the Islamic State group, a judicial official said Sunday.In February 2015, Libya posted a video on the internet of the beheadings on a Libyan beach, sparking international condemnation and Egyptian airstrikes against jihadist targets in the neighboring country.Saturday’s court ruling came a day after an attack on a mosque in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula that killed more than 300 people and for which IS is the main suspect.The court also sentenced 10 people to life in prison — 25 years in Egypt — and three others to 15 years in prison, the official said.The ruling can still be appealed.The court first condemned the seven to death in September. Three were condemned in absentia, and an unspecified number of those sentenced were accused of having taken part in the beheadings.Prosecutors accused the seven suspects of belonging to an IS cell in Marsa Matruh, northwest Egypt, and of planning attacks after having received military training at jihadist camps in Libya and Syria.In May, Egypt again struck what it said were jihadist targets in Libya after IS claimed a massacre of Coptic Christians on their way to a monastery south of Cairo.Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi said military reverses for IS in war-torn Syria were driving its fighters to try to relocate to Libya and the Sinai Peninsula of eastern Egypt.Egypt has been battling an insurgency by an IS affiliate based in North Sinai since the military’s ouster in 2013 of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi.Hundreds of members of Egypt’s security forces have been killed, while more than 100 Copts have died in church bombings since December.Twenty-seven children were among 305 people killed in Friday’s assault on the mosque in North Sinai, according to the state prosecution.

Saudi crown prince opens Islamic military counterterrorism meeting-Mohammed bin Salman tells 41-nation coalition that extremists won't be allowed to 'tarnish the name of our religion'-By AP-TOI-NOV 26,17

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Saudi Arabia’s crown prince has opened the first high-level meeting of a kingdom-led alliance of Muslim nations against terrorism.Mohammed bin Salman spoke briefly at the gathering of the Islamic Military Counterterrorism Alliance in Riyadh on Sunday. The 32-year-old son of King Salman said the coalition won’t allow extremists “to tarnish the name of our religion.”He says the members have gathered to pledge to do “all that we can until terrorism is uprooted and is erased from the face of the Earth.”The alliance, which first formed in December 2015 with 34 nations, now includes 41 countries, though it apparently does not include Iraq, Iran or Syria.Also not attending were any officials from Qatar. Saudi Arabia and three other Arab nations cut ties to Doha in June.
