Incase talks fail, More sanctions are coming against Tehran as Israel, US hold secret meeting over ‘Plan B’ on Iran

Incase talks fail, More sanctions are coming against Tehran as Israel, US hold secret meeting over ‘Plan B’ on Iran


Tel Aviv and Washington have been secretly meeting over a possible imposition of additional sanctions against Tehran.


According to the report by Axios, Israel and the U.S. have held secret discussions in the past week over a “Plan B” in case talks with Iran over its nuclear program fail.


The report indicated that one of these meetings was held between U.S. national security adviser Jake Sullivan and his Israeli counterpart, Eyal Hulata, via a secure video conference callwhere  the Israeli side noted the importance of developing a “Plan B” regarding the Iranian threat as diplomatic talks with Tehran have reached a stalemate and the regime’s nuclear program only seems to be accelerating.


According to an Israeli official cited by Axois, the U.S. said it was also concerned about Iran and would impose additional sanctions on Tehran if the talks do not resume soon.


 

The U.S. “remains engaged in ongoing consultations with the Israeli government on a range of issues related to the challenge posed by Iran,” a White House spokesperson told Axios.


On Tuesday, Iran signaled that negotiations would resume in the upcoming weeks but did not specify an actual date, Iranian news agency IRNA reported.


Negotiations held in Vienna over Iran’s nuclear agreement were cut short following the election of Ebrahim Raisi as president in mid-June and have not resumed since.


Months later, Western powers have expressed concern that the time for negotiations is running out, as Iran’s nuclear program is expanding beyond the limits set by the original deal.


German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas warned on Thursday that the West was losing its patience. “The clock is ticking. We’re not going to wait two or three months for the Iranian delegation to come back to the table in Vienna,” he said, according to France24.


Washington indicated on Thursday that it was prepared to be patient, while considering other contingency plans in case Tehran does not cooperate, Reuters reported.


“We’re still interested. We still want to come back to the table,” a senior U.S. State Department official was cited by Reuters as saying. “The window of opportunity is open. It won’t be open forever if Iran takes a different course,” he added.


“The ‘Plan B’ that we’re concerned about is the one that Iran may be contemplating, where they want to continue to build their nuclear program and not be seriously engaged in talks to return to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.”

STRATEGIC LIES AND STRATEGIC DECEPTIONS: America Needs to Start Telling the Truth About Israel’s Nukes

STRATEGIC LIES AND STRATEGIC DECEPTIONS: America Needs to Start Telling the Truth About Israel’s Nukes


American politicians often warn that if Iran obtains a nuclear weapon, it will spark a nuclear stampede across the Middle East. Allowing Tehran to get the bomb, Senator Robert Menendez, the current chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, predicted in March 2020, could “set off a dangerous arms race in the region.” In an interview in December, President-elect Joe Biden cautioned that if Iran went nuclear, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Egypt might too, “and the last goddamn thing we need in that part of the world is a buildup of nuclear capability.”

Such statements are so familiar that it’s easy to overlook their artifice. In warning that Iran could turn the Middle East nuclear, American politicians imply that the region is nuclear-free now. But it’s not. Israel already has nuclear weapons. You’d just never know it from America’s leaders, who have spent the last half-century feigning ignorance. This deceit undercuts America’s supposed commitment to nuclear nonproliferation, and it distorts the American debate over Iran. It’s time for the Biden administration to tell the truth.

American officials began hiding the truth about Israeli nuclear weapons after Israeli leaders hid the truth from them. In the early 1960s, writes Avner Cohen in his book “The Worst Kept Secret,” Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion repeatedly told President John F. Kennedy that the reactor Israel was building in the desert town of Dimona “was for peaceful purposes only.” When the United States sent inspectors to the site, the Israelis concocted an elaborate ruse, which included building fake walls to conceal the elevators that led to an underground reprocessing plant. By decade’s end, the die was cast. The C.I.A. concluded that Israel already possessed nuclear warheads.

So Richard Nixon and Prime Minister Golda Meir hatched a deal. Neither Israel nor the United States would acknowledge that Israel had nuclear weapons, and Washington would not pressure Israel to submit them to international oversight. For 50 years now, American presidents have abided by the bargain. Scholars believe that when Israel tested a nuclear weapon in the Indian Ocean in 1979, the Carter administration covered it up. In 2009, when a journalist asked Barack Obama if he knew of “any country in the Middle East that has nuclear weapons?” Mr. Obama responded, “I don’t want to speculate.”

Feigning ignorance about Israeli nuclear weapons makes a mockery of America’s efforts at nonproliferation. Mr. Obama vowed to pursue a nuclear-free world. Yet to prevent public discussion of Israel’s arsenal, his administration helped squelch a United Nations conference on a nuclear-free zone in the Middle East. The Biden administration continues to impose punishing sanctions on Iran in an attempt to force its government to accept inspections more stringent than those required by the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty. Meanwhile, Israel, which has never signed the N.P.T., permits no inspections at all.

This hypocrisy leads many around the world to smirk when American diplomats claim to be defending the “rules-based order.” It also empowers those Iranians who claim Tehran has the right to match its regional rival.

Finally, the American government’s deceptive silence prevents a more honest debate at home about the dangers an Iranian nuclear weapon would pose. American politicians sometimes say an Iranian bomb would pose an “existential” threat to Israel. That’s a dubious claim, given that Israel possesses a nuclear deterrent it can deploy on air, land and sea. But many Americans find the claim plausible because, according to recent polling conducted by Shibley Telhami of the University of Maryland, barely 50 percent know Israel has nuclear weapons. A higher percentage thinks Tehran has the bomb.

Even if an Iranian bomb wouldn’t existentially threaten Israel, the United States should still work to forestall one diplomatically. With negotiations with Tehran at risk of collapse, the Biden administration should commit to lifting the sanctions that are crippling Iran’s economy in return for verifiable limits on Iran’s nuclear capacity. But if those efforts fail — and the Biden administration faces pressure to wage war rather than allow Iran to gain the capacity to build a nuclear weapon — it’s crucial that Americans make an informed decision about the risk a nuclear Iran poses to America’s closest ally in the Middle East. That’s harder when the American government never publicly admits that Israel has the means to deter a nuclear attack.

The Biden administration is not going to force Israel to give up its nuclear weapons. But that doesn’t mean it must undermine America’s global credibility and deceive its people by denying reality. Perhaps a more honest American discussion of Israel’s nuclear arsenal will breathe new life into the distant dream of a nuclear-free Middle East. Even if that doesn’t happen, it will be bracing, after a half-century of lying by omission, simply to hear America’s leaders tell the truth.

“ANONYMOUS”: Kanu’ll die around Sep. 25, Israel to attack Nigeria, plus other expositions on Igbokwe, Igboho, ors

“ANONYMOUS”: Kanu’ll die around Sep. 25, Israel to attack Nigeria, plus other expositions on Igbokwe, Igboho, ors


The group simply known as “ANONYMOUS” has release the latest “EXPOSITION 7” for the month of July, 2021.


The exposition said, among other things that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will die on or before September 25, 2021.


It also stated that Israel will attack Nigeria over the three Israelis detained by the Department of State Security Service (DSS) for alleged involvement with IPOB.


Other issues in the exposition include the “Joseph Igbokwe, a man who’s sold out his own people to the enemy”, Mr. Sunday Adeniyi Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, et al.


ANONYMOUS became popular for saying things that are considered “weird” and “unpopular” but later lived up to the predictions, even in small details.


Below is the full exposition by “ANONYMOUS”:


To the many who demanded for the writing! Here it is. We no longer post the writing alongside the video as many read and ignore the video. Sometimes, There’s always a hidden information in the video which you always miss when you don’t listen.

Hello, this is Friday, 16th July , exactly 7 p m here in Hawaii. We are Anonymous. We apologize for the delay again in the exposition 7, exposition 7 was supposed to have been done, it has however had a lengthy delay just like the exposition 6C.

This is because, the agendists keeps monitoring the Anonymous and its exposition, the agendists always improvises on a more regular basics as we keep pushing them back to there thinking room every now and then.

The agendists have so far stopped there communication through emails, phone calls and even WhatsApp as they have now opted for what they think is a more secure means of communication, all in a bid to outride the Anonymous.

That is total bullshit! You can’t hide from the Anonymous, you can’t stop the Anonymous, the Anonymous sees all things. You can’t hide from the Anonymous.

We first wish to send a stern warning to the agendists and the Nigerian government at large. It would interest you to know, you are threading on a deadly part, the capture of the Israeli citizens and there detain would smell doom if not immediately handled.

The nation of Israel never joke with there citizens, you must be aware, there’s an imminent attack on Nigeria from Israel if the three arrested are not released by the 1st day of August. Missiles would be unleashed and your facilities would be targeted, your homes would be destroyed.

Again feel free to doubt as always, this would happen and your capital would be leveled to zero. You might not be alive to regret after all.

Good morning once again and welcome to Exposition 7. This is Anonymous.

First we would address the 25th Day of September, remember, we mentioned this date many months ago, as usual, many ignored, many called it a guess game, many even went as far and called us fake, but what is the outcome of your utterances? Did it change anything? Absolutely nothing was changed.

It would interest you to know, the judges would be on vacation until the 20th day of September. During this period, the agendists believes Mr Kanu would die of health related problems in detention as he would be outrightly be denied access to his personal doctor.

It might interest you to know, if Mr Kanu is alive by 20th of September, a bio means would be deployed. Nnamdi must die before 25th September or on that date. 25th September is a Saturday, Mr Kanu Nnamdi would be reported critically ill and sick, however, nothing can be done as that is an off day in the Nigerian civil system.

You must stop the doubt game and move swiftly to avert this. The people from the eastern region must pull all strings now to avert this. If not done, all this said shall happen and nothing would change this.

However, the death of Nnamdi Okwudili would change nothing in the quest for the new nation, the death of Mr Kanu would raise many more Kanu’s which would do a deadlier work than the current Kanu. We advice the agendists to go back to there drawing boards, the agenda won’t be a success, this is not a guess, this is a certainty.

You can’t succeed with the agenda. The Anonymous already made the world aware of your deadly plans, anonymous is always ahead of you, you can only try but at this point, it is an already failed attempt.

The people of the East must be aware of a man with name Joseph Igbokwe, a man who’s sold out his own people to the enemy, you must be cautious of the mentioned as he’s planted secret spies across the territory, your activities are monitored and information transmitted back to the agendists.

Mr Joseph so far has masterminded the killing of numerous wealthy men from this region whom they believe sponsors the move for a new nation. Many more wealthy families would suffer similar faith if Mr Joseph Igbokwe is not immediately tackled.

Mr Sunday Adeniyi Adeyemo also known as Mr Igboho must be thankful to have survived the attack on his house a few weeks ago. We had talked about this before time, we had as well mentioned clearly the pattern of attack, as usual, it was doubted, however, that did not stop the exposition from coming through.

Mr Sunday Adeniyi Adeyemo must be mindful of his followers, there is a traitor who is really very close to him, a person whom he may never believe to be a traitor. This person gives out his details and way out to the agendists, Mr Sunday Adeniyi Adeyemo must watch his back carefully now as this is a terrible time.

Mr Sunday Adeniyi Adeyemo must be protected at all cost! We talked about the planned attack on his house, we talked about the planned assassination, all these already happened. But in all, just like Mr Kanu, Mr Sunday Adeniyi Adeyemo must not die!

Mr Adeniyi must be careful of his mistress! His close aids and trusted allies. Mr Adeniyi must not allow himself die like a little puppet.

We shall be back with the major exposition soon; we shall be exposing the agreement between the agendists and Kenya, Ghana and South Africa, the south must be aware, these mentioned countries would eventually be there greatest enemy.

Do not hate the people of these mentioned countries anyway, for it is there leadership who’s decided to be used by the agendists.

You must not forget,

We are Anonymous

We are Legion

We do not Forgive

We do not Forget

Expect us.

Russian Putin Messages Netanyahu, Congratulates new Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett

Russian Putin Messages Netanyahu, Congratulates new Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett

By world Israel News Staff



Russian President Vladimir Putin sent Benjamin Netanyahu a personal telegram expressing “appreciation” for the former prime minister’s years of work and calling him an “asset” to Israel.


Putin also sent a congratulatory message to Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, saying that future cooperation would help strengthen “peace, security and stability in the Middle East.”


Naftali

Israeli leaders have been frequently forced to walk a tightrope between Russian and U.S. interests. Navigating between the two has become more complicated by Russian and Iranian moves in neighboring Syria as well as Russian support for Iran’s nuclear program. How Bennett will manage relations with Moscow remains to be seen.


Here’s a look back at how Netanyahu maneuvered with Russia — sometimes successfully, sometimes less so.


2014: In a move that angered the U.S. State Department, Israel took a neutral stance on Russia’s annexation of Crimea.


2015: When the Russian military intervened in the Syrian civil war, Netanyahu and Putin boosted their communications to avoid Israeli and Russian forces coming into conflict.


2016: On Netanyahu’s instructions, Israel’s delegation to the UN skipped a General Assembly vote on Syrian and Russian war crimes in Syria. The very next day, Russia’s ambassador to the UN proposed the Security Council postpone a vote on Israeli settlements until after the inauguration of Donald Trump.


2017: Russia recognized”West Jerusalem” as Israel’s capital, though its embassy remains in Tel Aviv.


Netanyahu

2018: During an Israeli air strike in Syria, Syrian air defenses shot down a Russian plane. Moscow blamed Israel for not giving notice of the strike and for using the Russian plane as shield. Israel denied the accusations, and Moscow went on to sell Syria an advanced S-300 missile system.


2019: In a goodwill gesture, Russia facilitated the return of the remains of Israeli MIA Zachary Baumel from Syria. The soldier disappeared and was presumed dead during the 1982 Battle of Sultan Yacoub in Lebanon.


2019: Images of Netanyahu and Putin appeared on Likud campaign posters around Israel.


2019: Israeli national Naama Issachar was arrested and held in Russia on charges of drug possession. Israeli officials said Russia detained her as a bargaining chip to secure the release of Russian national Aleksei Burkov from Israeli custody. Burkov was due to be extradited to the U.S., where he was wanted for cyber crimes. Burkov was extradited anyway and Putin pardoned Issachar in 2020.


2020: As a goodwill gesture to Russia, Israel released two Syrian prisoners, one of whom was convicted of espionage. Media reports suggested that the Kremlin was seeking a quid pro quo with Jerusalem in which Israel would assist in ending Western sanctions against the Syrian regime of Bashar Assad. In return, Moscow would permit Israel to continue its airstrikes on Iranian interests in Syria.

Putin also sent a congratulatory message to Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, saying that future cooperation would help strengthen “peace, security and stability in the Middle East.”

Israeli leaders have been frequently forced to walk a tightrope between Russian and U.S. interests. Navigating between the two has become more complicated by Russian and Iranian moves in neighboring Syria as well as Russian support for Iran’s nuclear program. How Bennett will manage relations with Moscow remains to be seen.


Here’s a look back at how Netanyahu maneuvered with Russia — sometimes successfully, sometimes less so.


2014: In a move that angered the U.S. State Department, Israel took a neutral stance on Russia’s annexation of Crimea.


2015: When the Russian military intervened in the Syrian civil war, Netanyahu and Putin boosted their communications to avoid Israeli and Russian forces coming into conflict.


2016: On Netanyahu’s instructions, Israel’s delegation to the UN skipped a General Assembly vote on Syrian and Russian war crimes in Syria. The very next day, Russia’s ambassador to the UN proposed the Security Council postpone a vote on Israeli settlements until after the inauguration of Donald Trump.


2017: Russia recognized”West Jerusalem” as Israel’s capital, though its embassy remains in Tel Aviv.


Netanyahu

2018: During an Israeli air strike in Syria, Syrian air defenses shot down a Russian plane. Moscow blamed Israel for not giving notice of the strike and for using the Russian plane as shield. Israel denied the accusations, and Moscow went on to sell Syria an advanced S-300 missile system.


2019: In a goodwill gesture, Russia facilitated the return of the remains of Israeli MIA Zachary Baumel from Syria. The soldier disappeared and was presumed dead during the 1982 Battle of Sultan Yacoub in Lebanon.


2019: Images of Netanyahu and Putin appeared on Likud campaign posters around Israel.


2019: Israeli national Naama Issachar was arrested and held in Russia on charges of drug possession. Israeli officials said Russia detained her as a bargaining chip to secure the release of Russian national Aleksei Burkov from Israeli custody. Burkov was due to be extradited to the U.S., where he was wanted for cyber crimes. Burkov was extradited anyway and Putin pardoned Issachar in 2020.


2020: As a goodwill gesture to Russia, Israel released two Syrian prisoners, one of whom was convicted of espionage. Media reports suggested that the Kremlin was seeking a quid pro quo with Jerusalem in which Israel would assist in ending Western sanctions against the Syrian regime of Bashar Assad. In return, Moscow would permit Israel to continue its airstrikes on Iranian interests in Syria.

World leaders called and tweeted their their congratulations to Prime Minister Naftali Bennett in the hours following the swearing in of his new government on Sunday.


The first call was from U.S. President Joe Biden, who reaffirmed his country’s solid friendship and commitment to Israel’s security, followed closely by Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, who took to Twitter to reaffirm his nation’s commitment to “stand by Israel’s side.”


British Prime Minister Boris Johnson also used the social media platform to offer his congratulations.


“As we emerge from COVID-19, this is an exciting time for the UK and Israel to continue working together to advance peace and prosperity for all,” he tweeted.


 

UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab specified the goal of “continued cooperation on security, trade and climate change, and working together to secure peace in the region” in his own congratulatory message.


Germany’s top two officials, Chancellor Angela Merkel and Foreign Affairs Minister Heiko Maas, both mentioned their eagerness to work closely with their new Israeli counterparts in their messages. Maas even threw in the traditional Jewish congratulations, tweeting, “Mazel tov! Germany will always be by Israel’s side.”


Indian Prime Minister Narenda Modi, who established a close rapport with former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu that led to an exponential leap in trade and friendship between the two countries, went one better. He tweeted his congratulations to Bennett entirely in Hebrew, saying, “In anticipation of marking 30 years since the upgrading of our diplomatic relations next year, I look forward to meeting with you and deepening the strategic relationship between our two countries.”

 The new government of Israel sweeps a lot of new and younger faces into the cabinet. While critics don’t expect the coalition and its one-seat Knesset majority to last, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett says his government will have staying power.


Here’s a who’s who of the key players who will be in the news in the coming days and weeks.


Prime Minister: Naftali Bennett: Leader of the right-wing religious-Zionist Yemina party. The son of American immigrants, the 49-year-old Bennett made his fortune as a software entrepreneur before entering politics in 2006.


His early political career includes a two-year stint as Benjamin Netanyahu’s chief of staff and another two years as director-general of the Yesha Council, an umbrella organization of the Israeli settlers movement. In more recent years, he has held the defense, education and diaspora affairs portfolios, among others.


He is the 13th and current prime minister of Israel since 13 June 2021. He served as minister of Diaspora Affairs from 2013 to 2019, as minister of education from 2015 to 2019 and as minister of Defense from 2019 to 2020.

Bennett and his wife, Gilat, live in Ra’anana with their four children.

Alternate Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Yair Lapid: Leader of the secular, centrist Yesh Atid party. Prior to entering politics, Lapid was a prominent news anchor and columnist. He is widely credited with being the driving force behind the formation of the Change bloc. Lapid served as finance minister for nearly two years and then as the Knesset’s opposition leade


Under the terms of the rotation agreement, Lapid and Bennett will switch posts in two year


He has clashed with the Haredi community over issues such as Sabbath commerce and army deferments for yeshiva student


Lapid lives in Tel Aviv with his wife, Lihi and their two children. Lapid has another son from a previous marriag


Defense Minister Benny Gantz: Leader of the secular, centrist Blue and White party. Gantz served as IDF chief of staff before entering politics. Gantz allied himself with Lapid for the March 2020 election campaign. After the election resulted in political stalemate, Gantz broke with Lapid to join Benjamin Netanyahu in a national unity government to fight the Covid pandemic.


The unity government included a rotation agreement that would have seen Gantz becoming prime minister in November, 2021. But Gantz’s popularity fell after Netanyahu broke the deal.


Finance Minister Avigdor Liberman: Leader of the secular, right-wing Israel Beiteinu party. Liberman was born in Moldova and came to Israel with his parents. Liberman became active in politics, rising to director-general of the Likud party in the ’90s, and then director-general of the prime minister’s office After a falling out with Netanyahu, Liberman formed the National Union, and then the Israel Beiteinu parties. Secular Russian immigrants make up the bulk of his political base.


In previous governments, Liberman has held a number of cabinet portfolios, most notably defense and foreign affairs.


Justice Minister Gideon Sa’ar: Leader of the secular, right-wing New Hope party. Like Bennett and Liberman, Sa’ar rose to Likud’s highest echelons before falling out with Netanyahu and leaving the party. He has held the interior and education portfolios in previous governments.


Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked: Number two person in Yemina. Shaked was a prominent Likud activist who quit the party to join forces with Naftali Bennett. Shaked previously served as Justice Minister.


Transportation Minister Merav Michaeli: Leader of the secular, left-wing Labor party. A former news anchor and columnist, Michaeli first went into politics in 2012.


Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz: Leader of the secular, left-wing Meretz party. A former journalist and commentator, Horowitz entered politics in 2009.


Knesset Member Mansour Abbas: Leader of the Islamist Arab Ra’am party. Abbas will hold no cabinet position, but his party’s four seats will make him a pivotal figure. A dentist by training, he first entered the Knesset in 2019 as a member of the United Arab List, a faction of the Joint List. Abbas broke with the Joint List. Ra’am is the first Arab party to join an Israeli governing coalition.


Speaker of the Knesset Mickey Levy: Member of Yesh Atid. A former police officer and of Kurdish descent, Levy formerly served as Deputy Minister of Finance.


Opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu: Leader of the Likud party. As head of the largest party not in the governing coalition, Netanyahu will serve as opposition leader. The former prime minister says he will work to topple the Change bloc government.


Netanyahu served as prime minister for 12 years, and also for a three-year stint in the 90s. He is currently standing trial on charges of corruption. Netanyahu maintains he is innocent.

Syrian state media: Israeli Defense Forces, IDF strike several targets in Damascus leaves 10 dead

Syrian state media: Israeli Defense Forces, IDF strike several targets in Damascus leaves 10 dead

 Syrian reports says Israel struck several targets in the Damascus area; casualties include 7 ‘non-Syrians.’


By Paul Shindman, World Israel News



Syrian sources claimed Israeli aircraft struck targets in the Damascus area Tuesday night, leaving at least 10 people dead including seven “non-Syrians.”

The official Syrian news agency SANA reported the “Syrian Arab Army confronted an Israeli aggression” and shot down some incoming missiles that it claimed were fired by Israeli aircraft flying over Lebanon.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that the strikes targeted Syrian military sites and were the first in close to a month. SOHR activists reported hearing explosions in the perimeter of Damascus international airport and at least two other locations including “arsenals in the al-Dumayr district.”

Arabic media quoting the SOHR reported that at least 10 people were killed “including 7 non-Syrians,” which is generally a euphemism for Iranian military personnel or members of foreign militias backed by Iran that are in the country supporting Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.

There was no official confirmation from any Israel sources, who usually decline to comment on reports of attacks on Syria.


The SOHR noted that Syrian regime forces and Iranian-backed militias were seen on high alert in the perimeter of Damascus international airport for unknown reasons since early June.


The organization said the latest air attack appears to be the first since a May 5 helicopter strike by the Israel Air Force on a Syrian military post near Quneitra that was manned by members of the Iran-backed Hezbollah terror group, injuring three of them.


In April, an old model Russian-made anti-aircraft missile fired by Syria missed its target and flew hundreds of kilometers south before exploding in an open area of the Negev desert near the Israeli nuclear site in Dimona. The incoming missile triggered air defense alerts and caused some panic, but no damage or injuries.


Israeli leaders have repeatedly declared that they will not tolerate an Iranian threat on its northern border with Syria and will take all necessary measures to ensure that such a presence does not emerge.


Iran, which routinely threatens to destroy Israel, arms and funds Hezbollah. Israel has repeatedly intercepted shipments of advanced weapons that Iran has tried to supply to the terror group in Lebanon.

Israeli Netanyahu blasts coalition, fights to survive, seeks defectors to block new gov’t

Israeli Netanyahu blasts coalition, fights to survive, seeks defectors to block new gov’t

By Paul Shindman, World Israel News



With an estimated 10 days left before coalition government could sweep him out of power for the first time in 12 years, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his allies attacked Yemina Party leader Naftali Bennett Thurdsay in an attempt to break apart the bizarre coalition of right, left and Arab parties before it can take office.

“All right-wing Knesset members must oppose this dangerous left-wing government,” Netanyahu tweeted.

On Friday, supporters of Netanyahu’s Likud party protested outside Bennett’s home in Ra’anana, angry with his decision to go back on a pre-election promise to never sit in a government with the center-left Yesh Atid party led by Yair Lapid. Netanyahu and top Likud officials are trying to get Yemina members Nir Orbach and Idit Silman to drop their support, Kan News reported.

On social media, the Likud party posted a loop of a nine-second video of Bennett, who is on track to replace Netanyahu as prime minister, promising that he would never serve in a Lapid government.

“I promise you that in any situation I will not sit (with) and will not give my hand that Yair Lapid will be the prime minister of Israel,” Bennett said at the time.

However, Bennett on Thursday explained in a Channel 10 interview that his top priority was preventing Israel from going to a fifth straight election. In return, Lapid also compromised and will allow Bennett, whose Yemina party has only seven seats compared to Lapid’s 17 in the 120-seat Knesset, lead the country first.

The eight-party coalition will see Lapid and Bennett split the leadership duties with Bennett being prime minister for the next two years before handing the position over to Lapid.

Bennett held a private meeting of the seven Knesset members in his caucus, working to convince legislator Orbach to support the formation of the unprecedented coalition that will see right, center and left-wing parties get the support of the Islamist United Arab List (Ra’am) party to give it the required majority in the 120-Knesset, Israel’s parliament.

Orbach withdrew his critical vote to support changing the Knesset speaker, that would allow the incoming coalition to control the agenda leading up to a vote of confidence in the new government expected on June 13.

Orbach said publicly “I know who Abbas is, I do not want to sit with him in one government,” and announced that if he decided not be part of the coalition he would resign his seat for someone else in the party. He later recanted after a massive social media campaign by the right-wing demanding he stay true to his convictions and remain in the party, Kan News reported.

Going in to the meeting at Bennett’s house, Orbach would only say that “meetings with the faction are always successful, it will be good.”

Lapid and Bennett want to replace Knesset Speaker Yariv Levin of Likud who is close to Netanyahu with somebody from their coalition, but lacking Orbach’s critical vote Levin remains in charge of the House. Levin demanded the two submit their coalition agreement to him as speaker of the house, which would also give Likud and other opponents a chance to publicly exploit any written agreements for concessions to Arab or left-wing parties that could thwart an expected vote in the Knesset later this month.

“The agreements should be submitted to the Knesset Secretariat immediately upon their signing,” said Levin said. Coalition members fear that Levin do as much as possible to postpone the plenary session in which the new government will be sworn in – thus allowing the continued public pressure Bennett’s party as well as the right-wing New Hope party led by Gideon Saar, who earlier this year bolted Likud in a bid to oust Netanyahu.

The Likud is also trying to convince New Hope members Ze’ev Elkin and Sharren Haskel, both former Likud members who sided with Elkin, to defect back to their home party.

A surprise angle that opponents to Lapid and Bennett might take the Arab angle, hoping that both opponents and followers of Ra’am leader Mansour Abbas may object to any concessions he may have made in supporting a majority Jewish government.

Ra’am, a conservative religious Islamist party, is vehemently opposed to the gay rights agenda of the left-wing Meretz party, which is also in the coalition. Although the coalition agreement reportedly leaves LGBT issues off the government’s legislative agenda to ensure Ra’am support, Meretz leader Nizan Horowitz said his party had to stick its core goal of promoting LGBT issues.

Abbas has faced intensive pressure from within his own party for appearing to compromise with the Zionists, and there are still fears that if they are not careful on these issues in the coming days, any other three Ra’am Knesset members may oppose the formation of the government.

 fighter jets of Israeli Defense Forces razed on Saturday afternoon a high-rise building in the Gaza Strip hosting the Hamas military intelligence units.

According to reports by 24news and many other sources, the Jala Tower complex in the Gaza Strip is also where the Gaza offices of several international news media outlets are based, including the Associated Press and al-Jazeera.

Reports suggested that the tower’s owner had received a warning from the IDF ahead of the airstrikes, allowing the civilians inside to evacuate.

The Israeli military accused the terrorist groups of using the journalists working in the building as human shields.


“The terrorist organization Hamas deliberately places its military assets in the heart of the civilian population in the Gaza Strip,” the army said.


In a statement issued shortly after the attack, Hamas threatened another major rocket salvo into central Israel in retaliation for the strike.


Red alert sirens went off earlier in the day in the area, with one Israeli killed in the Saturday afternoon barrage fired into the area.


According to reports by World Israel News and AP, turmoil from the battle between Israel and Hamas spilled over into Judea and Samaria on Friday, sparking the most widespread Palestinian rioting in years as hundreds of young Arabs in multiple towns clashed with Israeli troops.


On the outskirts of Ramallah, Nablus and other towns and cities, Arab rioters waved Palestinian flags and trucked in tires to burn in order to create smoke screens from which they could attack Israelis.


At least 10 violent rioters were killed by IDF soldiers. An 11th Palestinian was killed when he tried to stab a soldier at a military position.


Hamas has fired some 2,000 rockets toward Israel since Monday, according to the Israeli military.


 

Most have been intercepted by anti-missile defenses, but they have brought life to a standstill in southern Israeli cities, caused disruptions at airports and have set off air raid sirens in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.


Palestinian rocket attacks have killed nine Israelis, including a 5-year-old boy.


On Israel’s northern border, a group of Lebanese and Palestinian rioters on the other side cut through the border fence and briefly crossed. One Lebanese was killed. Three rockets were fired toward Israel from neighboring Syria, but they either landed in Syrian territory or in empty areas, Israeli media said. It was not immediately known who fired them.


Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed that Hamas would “pay a very heavy price” for its rocket attacks. Israel called up 9,000 reservists Thursday to join its troops massed at the Gaza border.


On Friday, the U.S. deputy assistant secretary of state for Israel-Palestinian affairs, Hady Amr, arrived in Israel as part of an attempt by Washington to de-escalate the conflict.


U.S. President Joe Biden gave a show of support to Netanyahu in a call a day earlier, saying “there has not been a significant overreaction” in Israel’s response to Hamas rockets. He said the aim is to get a “significant reduction in attacks, particularly rocket attacks.”


On Saturday, an Israeli man a was killed by a Palestinian rocket that hit a residential building in Ramat Gan, a suburb of Tel Aviv.


That strike was the latest attack in an onslaught of Palestinian rockets that began on Tuesday, which as claimed the lives of nine Israelis to date.


The Gaza rocket attacks were accompanied by an outburst of Palestinian violence started in Jerusalem that has spread into mixed Jewish-Arab cities in Israel.


Arabs have launched pogrom-like violent riots, viciously attacking Israelis, torching synagogues, destroying ritual, and damaging property.


 

There were also widespread violent Palestinian riots on Friday in Judea and Samaria.


The spiraling violence has raised fears of a new Palestinian “intifada,” an Arabic term that is used as a euphemism for a wave of premeditated violent terror attacks on Israeli civilians.


The office of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Saturday that he spoke with U.S. President Joe Biden.


Netanyahu thanked him for the “unreserved support of the United States for our right to defend ourselves.”


A furious Israeli barrage early Friday destroyed a vast tunnel network used by the Hamas terror group.


Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, a military spokesman, said the military aims to minimize collateral damage in striking military targets.


Israeli media said the military believed dozens of militants were killed inside the tunnels. The Hamas and Islamic Jihad militant groups have confirmed 20 deaths in their ranks, but the military said the real number is far higher.


Also, an Israeli airstrike on Saturday targeted the home of Khalil al-Hayeh, a top leader of Gaza’s ruling Hamas terror group.

Al-Hayeh’s home served as part of the Islamist group’s “terrorist infrastructure,” said the IDF.

Al-Hayeh is a senior Hamas figure in Gaza, and the attack signaled that Israel will continue to go after Hamas’ top leadership.

His fate after the strike was not immediately known.

Festival Turns to Horrific Tragedy, 45 Trampled to Death in Northern Israel

Festival Turns to Horrific Tragedy, 45 Trampled to Death in Northern Israel

Chaos as Rescue Workers Struggle to Save Lives; Netanyahu Proclaims National Day of Mourning

Over 100 others injured in stampede in annual pilgrimage to revered rabbi’s grave


Authorities are investigating the cause, but it appears it was the result of a slippery staircase.



By Paul Shindman, World Israel News


At least 45 people died and over one hundred were injured, many of the critically, when people stampeded at the annual Lag B’Omer pilgrimage in northern Israel.

The largest mass event in Israel since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic suddenly turned into one of the country’s greatest disasters. An estimated 100,000-200,000 people were crowded at Mt. Meron in the northern Galilee area when some may have slipped backwards, starting a domino effect and causing people to flee in panic.

“Magen David Adom EMTs and paramedics are treating 103 injured of which 38 in critical condition in the field, 6 in critical condition who were evacuated to the hospitals, 18 in serious condition, 2 in moderate condition and 39 in mild condition,” said Nadav Matzner, a spokesman for the national emergency ambulance service.

 

The IDF said it brought in Israel Air Force helicopters and its air rescue unit to evacuate the wounded to hospitals around the country, with soldiers from the Homefront Command and medical teams from the north of the country responding to the scene.


“I was on duty when I saw dozens of people fall on top of one another during the collapse,” said Yehuda Gottleib, a volunteer EMT with the United Hatzalah rescue organization, who was one of the first responders at the scene. “A large number of them were crushed and lost consciousness.


“I immediately requested backup from the on-site dispatchers and told them to send as many additional volunteers and medical personnel as they could to the scene and that we had dozens of injuries,” Gottleib said.


“This is one of the worst tragedies that I have ever experienced. I have not seen anything like this since I entered into the field of emergency medicine back in 2000,” said United Hatzalah vice president Lazar Hyman.


A United Hatzalah official said dozens of medical teams performed CPR on the victims who were crushed, while others treated more than 100 people who were injured with varying degrees of severity.

 

Due to the nature of the incident, members of the Pychotrauma and Crisis Response Unit were dispatched as well in order to deal with those who are suffering from shock and emotional stress reactions, the rescue organization said


“A heavy disaster on Mount Meron. We all pray for the recovery of the injured,” tweeted Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.


Many mark Lag B’Omer by visiting Bar Yochai’s gravesite as well as by kindling bonfires that symbolize the spiritual light brought into the world by the sage through his prominent Kabbalistic work known as the Zohar, eventually compiled in Spain some 1000 years later.


In Washington, White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan sent the first American response.


“Our hearts go out to the people of Israel tonight following the terrible tragedy at Mount Meron. We offer our condolences to the families and friends who lost loved ones in this disaster, and wish a full and swift recovery to those injured,” Sullivan tweeted.


“The Ministry of Health and I have been following the terrible Meron disaster since nightfall,” tweeted Health Minister Yuli Edelstein. “Hospitals and rescue organizations are doing sacred work to care for the injured. Our hearts go out to the families of those killed in this difficult time


The crowds of mostly ultra-Orthodox Jews were making the annual pilgrimage to Israel’s Mount Meron to be near the gravesite of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yocha


According to tradition, Bar Yochai’s death occurred on Lag B’Omer, translated as “the 33rd day of the Omer,” which, according to the Hebrew calendar, is on the 18th day of Iyar. The Omer comprises a period of seven complete weeks starting from the second night of Passover and ending at the Jewish Festival of Weeks, known as Shavuot.

Israeli Defense Forces Strike Targets in Gaza as Hamas fired not less than 3 dozens of Rockets into Israel's territory

Israeli Defense Forces Strike Targets in Gaza as Hamas fired not less than 3 dozens of Rockets into Israel's territory

By Associated Press



Palestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip fired some three dozen rockets into Israel overnight Saturday, while the Israeli military struck back at targets operated by the ruling Hamas group. The exchange came as tensions in Jerusalem spilled over into the worst round of cross-border violence in months.


The barrage of rocket fire came as hundreds of Palestinians rioted in Jerusalem, clashing with Israeli police.  At least four police and six protesters were injured.


The riots have become a nightly occurrence throughout the month of Ramadan and show no signs of stopping.

The Israeli military said a total of 36 rockets were fired into Israel throughout the night. It said six rockets were intercepted, while most of the others landed in open areas. There were no reports of injuries or serious damage, but the incoming rocket fire set off air-raid sirens throughout southern Israel.


The military imposed limits on outdoor gatherings in southern Israel early Saturday but lifted the restrictions several hours later and allowed people to resume their normal routines.


Israel and Hamas, an Islamic terror group sworn to Israel’s destruction, are bitter enemies that have fought three wars and numerous skirmishes since Hamas seized control of Gaza in 2007 after a bloody battle with rival Palestinian factions.


Although neither side appears to have an interest in escalating tensions, Hamas may feel obligated to act ahead of upcoming Palestinian parliamentary elections.


At dawn, hundreds of people in Gaza challenged nightly curfews imposed by Hamas to curb the coronavirus outbreak and took to the streets in an act of solidarity with fellow Palestinians in Jerusalem, burning tires.


The Palestinians want Jerusalem, Israel’s capital, to be the capital of their future state.


Palestinians have clashed with Israeli police on a nightly basis since the start of the month of Ramadan nearly two weeks ago.


The clashes intensified Thursday evening when hundreds of Palestinians hurled stones and bottles at police, who fired a water cannon and stun grenades to disperse them.


At the same time, a Jewish group known as Lahava led a march of hundreds of protesters chanting “Arabs get out!” toward the Damascus Gate. The group, led by a disciple of the late rabbi Meir Kahane, is allied with elements of a far-right party elected to Israel’s parliament last month.


The show of force came in response to videos circulated on TikTok showing Palestinians slapping religious Jews at random. After keeping them a few hundred yards (meters) away from Damascus Gate, police used water cannon, stun grenades and mounted police to push Israeli protesters back toward Jewish areas of Jerusalem.


In all, police said 44 people were arrested and 20 officers were injured.

Iran Fingered Again: Israeli-Owned Cargo Ship hit by missiles in the Arabian Sea

Iran Fingered Again: Israeli-Owned Cargo Ship hit by missiles in the Arabian Sea


On Thursday, an Isreali owned cargo ship was damaged by a missile in the Arabian Sea.

The attack was suspected to have been carried out and or sponsored by Iran, an Israeli security official said.


According to the official who spoke on condition of anonymity as reported by reuters, said the ship was on its way from Tanzania to India and was able to continue its voyage after the attack.

While the official did not provide further details, an Israel's Ynet news website said the ship sailing under a Liberian flag did not sustain serious damage.

Also Channel 12 news reported the ship is owned by XT Management, based in the port city of Haifa. Reuters said it could not reach officials at the company for comment.

Tel Aviv officials had no official comment yet as the Thursday incident comes about a month after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blamed Iran for an explosion aboard an Israeli-owned ship in the Gulf of Oman.

The vehicle-carrier MV Helios Ray was hit between the night of Feb 25 and morning of Feb. 26 by a blast above the water line that a U.S official said ripped holes in both sides of its hull. An Israeli official said limpet mines were used.

Iran denied involvement at the time. “We strongly reject this accusation,” said Saeed Khatibzadeh, spokesman for the Foreign Ministry in Tehran.

Iraqi Presidency refutes plans to normalize relations with Israel

Iraqi Presidency refutes plans to normalize relations with Israel


The Iraqi presidency has denied the Emirati media's claim that Baghdad intends to normalize relations with the Israeli regime.


According to thehe spokesman for the Iraqi President in a statement in response to the news of the Arabic Sky News network (UAE media), said: "The media and social media pages have published fake statements attributed to the president, saying that Iraq is ready to sign a peace agreement with Israel."


"We emphasize that what is being published in these media outlets is completely false and that these allegations are fabricated," the Rudaw channel in the Iraqi Kurdistan region was quoted as saying by the Iraqi official.


Sky News published this claim on its Twitter page on Tuesday evening and deleted it after a while.


Recently, some media outlets affiliated with the regional regimes and the Israeli regime have claimed that after the normalization of relations between the UAE, Bahrain, Sudan, and Morocco with Tel Aviv, it is now Iraq's turn.


It is believed that with the Iran's wider influence in the country, such time for Bagdhad Tell Aviv normalisation of tie is currently not ripe.


The normalization of relations between Israel and Gulf countries has been proposed to include more Middle Eastern and Arab states. 

While the biggest trophy expected by many would be the normalization of relations between Israel and Saudi Arabia, but the greatest geopolitical prize would be a diplomatic breakthrough between Israel and Iraq.

This Israel's normalisation of relations with the Arab and gulf nations is also believed to be stabbed in the back and detrimental of the Palestinian people who have only been surviving with backing of the Arab league against Israel.

Israel's Iron Dome

Israel is a nuclear-armed state with sophisticated weapons capable of taking on their neighbors.

Israel has a thriving economy with high standards of living for the citizens. 


It is not that they don't trust the God of Israel that provided their ancestors with Manna in the wilderness, but they understand that God won't plant rice and harvest it for them.

They have to do it themselves. 


Israel is not leaving the Gaza border in the hands of God and do nothing.


No, they built an 'Iron Dome' that intercepts rockets fired into Israeli territory by the Palestinian militant Hammas. 

Isreal has the best medical practice and hospitals in the world. They won the highest noble prize in science and research for humanity. 


It is not that they don't have confidence in the God of Moses and Elijah, but they understand that the God of Israel gave them wisdom and knowledge to act decisively. 


Dear Nigerian leaders, if there’s one, stop fooling around and hiding behind empty religion to cover up your incompetence. 


Your country is burning, people are dying, being murdered by militants. 


Kidnapping and banditry is the order of the day. 


People are living in fear everyday. 

.Yet, we hear you use words like, "It is in the hands of God" 


"Southwest is in the hands of God" 


"Nigeria is in the hands of God" 


How daft that is when you know that God has given you the power to take control of things. 


The money to equip the Army, Police and other security agencies to get a grip on this situation is not in the hands of God, it is in your hands.


Use it!


The money to rebuild roads, secure our borders, improve Healthcare and increase life expectancy is not in the hands of God, it is in your hands.


Use it!


For years, we've been sold this lie and fooled around, playing vain religion with people's lives. 


We can't go on like this. 


Borrow a leaf from Israel.


They have a job to do.


They do their part and God does His part. 


Do your part and get to work. 


Stop fooling around and playing with religion. 


The country is boiling while the leaders act as if they are in a coma!


Power is not conventionally given, rise to the occasion, get it and right the wrong.

IDF Demands Billions of Shekels to attack Tehran as Iran-Israel war looming

IDF Demands Billions of Shekels to attack Tehran as Iran-Israel war looming

Israel's Prime Minister

The Israeli Defense Ministry (IDF) made its demand in the background of Iran’s growing nuclear threat. A report said on Tuesday.


Accord to the report by  Kan 11 News, Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met Monday evening with the finance and defense ministers, their top staff, and the chief of staff to discuss the allocation of “at least” 3 billion shekels to prepare for a possible attack on Iran.


The Defense Ministry made its demand in the background of Iran’s growing nuclear threat as it continues to abrogate terms of the 2015 agreement.


The Islamic republic of Iran has greatly enlarged its uranium stockpile and recently began enriching the material to 20%, a level that sharply reduces the time needed to make a bomb.


In an interview with NBC News Monday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that Iran could be “weeks away” from having enough fissile material for a bomb if it keeps up its current pace. Others say it is up to two years.


In a speech last Tuesday at an Institute for National Securities Studies conference, IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi stated Israel would not just stand by and let Iran obtain a nuclear weapon.


Warning that a return to the 2015 nuclear deal with only slight modifications was untenable, Kochavi said that offensive military operations are already on the table. Such a long-range mission would be very complicated, as Iran has spread out the various components of its program over several sites in the country, some deep underground.


During the discussion over Kochavi’s 3 billion request, one sticking point was how to fund it. Finance Ministry officials objected to the funding unless budget cuts were made in other areas to make up for the shortfall. The Defense Ministry countered with two suggestions that were dubbed “creative” by Kan 11 commentator Shaul Amsterdamski.


The first was to take the money from a special emergency fund currently containing some 12 billion shekels that is set aside for rehabilitation of the country and compensation in case of a severe earthquake or war.


 This fund is replenishable as it consists of a certain percentage of property taxes that citizens pay. The second was to grant a VAT exemption to the defense establishment on future defense imports.


Neither proposal was acceptable to the Finance Ministry, Amsterdamski said. The first suggestion was nixed because the purpose of the emergency fund is not to supplement Defense Ministry needs, and the second idea would impair the future budget of the entire country.


No decision was made at the hours-long meeting as Netanyahu said he would convene the security cabinet Wednesday, the first time it is meeting in nearly two months.


Israel's Prime Minister

The Israeli Defense Ministry (IDF) made its demand in the background of Iran’s growing nuclear threat. A report said on Tuesday.


Accord to the report by  Kan 11 News, Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met Monday evening with the finance and defense ministers, their top staff, and the chief of staff to discuss the allocation of “at least” 3 billion shekels to prepare for a possible attack on Iran.


The Defense Ministry made its demand in the background of Iran’s growing nuclear threat as it continues to abrogate terms of the 2015 agreement.


The Islamic republic of Iran has greatly enlarged its uranium stockpile and recently began enriching the material to 20%, a level that sharply reduces the time needed to make a bomb.


In an interview with NBC News Monday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that Iran could be “weeks away” from having enough fissile material for a bomb if it keeps up its current pace. Others say it is up to two years.


In a speech last Tuesday at an Institute for National Securities Studies conference, IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi stated Israel would not just stand by and let Iran obtain a nuclear weapon.


Warning that a return to the 2015 nuclear deal with only slight modifications was untenable, Kochavi said that offensive military operations are already on the table. Such a long-range mission would be very complicated, as Iran has spread out the various components of its program over several sites in the country, some deep underground.


During the discussion over Kochavi’s 3 billion request, one sticking point was how to fund it. Finance Ministry officials objected to the funding unless budget cuts were made in other areas to make up for the shortfall. The Defense Ministry countered with two suggestions that were dubbed “creative” by Kan 11 commentator Shaul Amsterdamski.
