Everything Christians do should be based upon the Biblical text. Here are seven solid Bible reasons why Christians should support Israel.

The Apple of HIS Eye…

Everything Christians do should be based upon the Biblical text. Here are seven solid Bible reasons why Christians should support Israel.

1. Genesis 12:3 “And I will bless them that bless thee and curse him that curseth thee; and in thee shall all nations of the earth be blessed.” Point: God has promised to bless the man or nation that blesses the Chosen People. History has proven beyond reasonable doubt that the nations that have blessed the Jewish people have had the blessing of God; the nations that have cursed the Jewish people have experienced the curse of God.

2. St. Paul recorded in Romans 15:27 “For if the Gentiles have shared in their (the Jews) spiritual things, they are indebted to minister to them also in material things.”

Christians owe a debt of eternal gratitude to the Jewish people for their contributions that gave birth to the Christian faith. Jesus Christ, a prominent Rabbi from Nazareth said, “Salvation is of the Jews!” (St. John 4:22) consider what the Jewish people have given to Christianity:
a) The Sacred Scripture
b) The Prophets
c) The Patriarchs
d) Mary, Joseph, and Jesus Christ of Nazareth
e) The Twelve Disciples
f) The Apostles

It is not possible to say, “I am a Christian” and not love the Jewish people. The Bible teaches that love is not what you say, but what you do. (1 John 3:18) “A bell is not a bell until you ring it, a song is not a song until you sing it, love is not love until you share it.”

3. While some Christians try to deny the connection between Jesus of Nazareth and the Jews of the world, Jesus never denied his Jewishness. He was born Jewish, He was circumcised on the eighth day in keeping with Jewish tradition, He had his Bar Mitzvah on his 13th birthday, He kept the law of Moses, He wore the Prayer Shawl Moses commanded all Jewish men to wear, He died on a cross with an inscription over His head, “King of the Jews!

Jesus considered the Jewish people His family. Jesus said (Matthew 25:40) “Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren (the Jewish people… Gentiles were never called His brethren), ye have done it unto me.

4. “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, they shall prosper that love thee.” (Psalm 122:6) the scriptural principle of prosperity is tied to blessing Israel and the city of Jerusalem.

5. Why did Jesus Christ go to the house of Cornelius in Capernaum and heal his servant, which was ready to die? What logic did the Jewish elders use with Jesus to convince Him to come into the house of a Gentile and perform a miracle?

The logic they used is recorded in Luke 7:5; “For He loveth our nation, and He hath built us a synagogue.” The message? This Gentile deserves the blessing of God because he loves our nation and has done something practical to bless the Jewish people.

6. Why did God the Father select the house of Cornelius in Caesarea (Acts Chapter 10) to be the first Gentile house in Israel to receive the Gospel? The answer is given repeatedly in Acts 10.

Acts 10:2 “a devout man, (Cornelius) and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God always.” Who were the people to whom Cornelius gave these alms? They were the Jews

Again is Acts 10:4 “… thy prayers and thine alms are come up for a memorial before God.”

Again in Acts 10:31 “… and thine alms are had in remembrance in the sight of God.”
The point is made three times in the same chapter. A godly Gentile who expressed his unconditional love for the Jewish people in a practical manner was divinely selected by heaven to be the first Gentile house to receive the Gospel and the first to receive the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

These combined Scriptures verify that PROSPERITY (Genesis 12:3 and Psalm 122:6), HEALING (Luke 7:1-5) and the OUTPOURING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT came first to Gentiles that blessed the Jewish people and the nation of Israel in a practical manner.

7. We support Israel because all other nations were created by an act of men, but Israel was created by an act of God! The Royal Land Grant that was given to Abraham and his seed through Isaac and Jacob with an everlasting and unconditional covenant. (Genesis 12:1-3, 13:14-18, 15:1-21, 17:4-8, 22:15-18, 26:1-5 and Psalm 89:28-37.)

Gazan fisherman indicted for smuggling terror equipment

Fishing boats near Gaza

Fishing boats near Gaza

A Gaza fisherman was recently indicted for smuggling diving equipment to Hamas. The fisherman also attempted to smuggle weapons in Gaza, but was caught by the Egyptian army.

A South District criminal attorney sent an indictment against the 23-year-old fisherman on Sunday morning to the District Court in Be’er Sheva, charging him with three counts of committing crimes against the State of Israel.

According to the indictment, the fisherman made contact with Hamas terrorists in 2013 and used the fact he was a fisherman to smuggle diving equipment into Gaza, using a fishing boat he received from Hamas.

During 2015, the fisherman attempted to smuggle 200 kilograms of weapons in return for $1200, but he and several others were caught by the Egyptian army.

The indictment also mentions the fact that he committed his crimes in conjunction with an outside party. He is being charged, among other things, with committing crimes, giving services or making equipment available to terror organizations.

The file is under investigation of Shin Bet security forces and the Israeli police. Attorneys have requested the fisherman’s arrest until all legal proceedings against him have reached their conclusion.

‘The battle for the liberation of Raqa has begun’ Kurdish fighters have announced the opening of Operation “Wrath of Euphrates” to capture Raqa, ISIS’ stronghold in Syria

Kurdish fighters in Syria

AFP – A US-backed Kurdish-Arab alliance launched an offensive Sunday on the Islamic State group’s de facto Syrian capital Raqa, upping pressure on the jihadists after Iraqi forces entered
their Iraqi bastion Mosul.

“The major battle to liberate Raqa and its surroundings has begun,” Jihan Sheikh Ahmed, a spokeswoman for the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), said at a press conference in Ain Issa, some 50 kilometers (30 miles) north of the jihadist bastion.

The operation, dubbed “The Wrath of the Euphrates,” involves some 30,000 fighters and had begun on Saturday night, Ahmed said.

SDF spokesman Talal Sello told AFP it would proceed in two phases, first seizing areas around Raqa and isolating the city, then “taking control of the city” itself.

“The fight will not be easy, and will require accurate and careful operations because IS will defend its bastion knowing that the loss of Raqa will mean it is finished in Syria,” he said.

An AFP correspondent in Ain Issa saw dozens of armed SDF fighters heading on vehicles towards the frontline.

The long-awaited operation comes two years after IS seized control of large parts of Syria and Iraq and declared its cross-border “caliphate”.

The jihadists have suffered a string of territorial defeats in recent months and are under pressure on multiple fronts.

After launching an offensive on Mosul on October 17, Iraqi special forces pushed into the city on Friday and have been facing stiff resistance from the jihadists.

Complicated battlefield

The loss of Mosul and Raqa would deprive IS of its largest population centers, undermining the group’s claim to a self-declared “state”.

But capturing the two cities, both still home to large civilian populations, is expected to be a lengthy, and likely bloody, process.

Driving the jihadists from their urban strongholds has been the end-game since a US-led coalition launched air strikes against IS in the summer of 2014.

The coalition has also provided training and deployed hundreds of advisors to work with Iraqi forces and select Syrian fighters, including the SDF.

Sello said the alliance had received new weapons from the coalition for the Raqa battle, including anti-tank missiles.

Shortly after visiting Iraq last month to check on the Mosul offensive, US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said that an assault on Raqa would take place “within weeks”.

The idea of simultaneous operations against Mosul and Raqa “has been part of our planning for quite a while,” he said.

But in Raqa the battlefront is far more complicated.

After five years of civil war, Syria is divided into a patchwork of fiefdoms, with President Bashar al-Assad’s regime, IS and a range of opposition forces all holding territory.

Carter singled out the SDF as the coalition’s potential ground partner in the Raqa offensive and last week the alliance said it would be leading the assault.

Dominated by the powerful Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), the SDF has in recent months flushed IS out of swathes of territory in northern Syria, including the flashpoint town of Manbij in August.

Scene of worst atrocities

Washington has promoted the SDF as a key ally in the fight against IS, but the alliance is complicated by Turkey’s fierce opposition to the YPG.

Ankara calls the militia a “terrorist” group, and in August launched its own operation inside northern Syria, targeting both IS and the YPG.

Sello said on Sunday that the SDF had “agreed definitively” with the United States “that there will be no role for Turkey or the armed factions allied with it in the operation” to capture Raqa.

In northern Syria on the Euphrates River, Raqa was home to some 240,000 residents before 2011 and more than 80,000 people have fled there from other parts of the war-torn country.

It was the first provincial capital to fall from government control when rebels captured it in March 2013, two years after an uprising against Assad began.

IS drove out the rebels in January 2014 and five months later declared its self-styled Islamic “caliphate” in Syria and Iraq.

Raqa became the scene of some of IS’s worst atrocities, from stonings and beheadings to the trading of sex slaves.

Thousands of foreign fighters flocked to Raqa to join IS and US officials have described it as the nerve center for the group’s attacks abroad.

Radical cleric: We won’t give up Al-Aqsa From his jail cell, Sheikh Raed Salah accuses Israel of falsifying history.

Sheikh Raed Salah

Sheikh Raed Salah

Sheikh Raed Salah, head of the outlawed northern branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel, is warning against what he calls Israel’s “escalating measures” against the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Salah is currently serving a nine-month jail sentence in Israel after being convicted of encouraging violent attacks and inciting racism in a 2007 sermon.

In a message from his prison cell to the Arab Israeli public and to the Arab and Islamic nation, which was quoted by the Hamas-affiliated Palestine newspaper, Salah stressed that Muslims will continue to cling to the Al-Aqsa Mosque because of their eternal right to it.

He further said that UNESCO’s resolution denying the Jewish people’s connection to the Temple Mount strengthens the Muslims’ “eternal right” to the complex.

He accused Israel of falsifying history and of striving to impose their “false” narrative on the Palestinian people, “as though no other nations existed before the Israeli people were in Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque.”

The radical cleric has in the past labeled Israeli leaders “terrorists” and “enemies of Allah” in a speech to Muslims in Be’er Sheva, and was also jailed for five months in 2010 for spitting at an Israeli police officer.

The Israeli government outlawed the northern branch of the Islamic Movement, which Salah heads, last year.

Hang him in the town square’ Lehava Chairman calls on Defense Minister to fulfill his promise of ‘death to terrorists,’ after Dafna Meir’s murderer gets life sentence

Bentzi Gopshtain

Bentzi Gopshtain

Chairman of anti-assimilation group Lehava Bentzi Gopshtain reacted in an interview withArutz Sheva to the life sentence on the terrorist who murdered Dafna Meir in her home in the Judean community of Otniel.

“A disgrace was committed in Israel,” Gopshtain said, using a biblical expression. “[Defense Minister] Avigdor Liberman was chosen on one ticket – he promised the death penalty for terrorists. You got elected, you became Defense Minister – so act. The murderer must be killed, hang him in the town square. The only solution is death to terrorists.”

Israel has always hesitated to invoke the death penalty, except for arch-Nazi Adolph Eichmann in 1962, because of the fear that any Israelis who fall into Arab hands would be summarily killed, although that has hardly proven itself. Terrorists murder their Jewish prisoners anyway.

Regarding the noise of late surrounding Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked and her attempt to bring about reform in the way Supreme Court justices are elected, Gopshtain said: “I hope that the Justice Minister will have the courage to finish what she started.”

“The big problem in the State is not just the government, but the courts. If they really want to rule, they have to switch the judges, because we’re not going to get anywhere with those judges.”

Obama’s hidden agenda has been exposed he continues to spit venom towards the nation that I love Israel that snake

The Obama administration is manufacturing a crisis with Israel in anticipation of a post-election diplomatic push targeting the Jewish state, and this past week launched a series of broadsides criticizing the Israelis through the media and in press briefings, according to congressional sources and Jewish-American officials who spoke to THE WEEKLY STANDARD.

The White House and State Department lashed out after the Israelis advanced plans to build in areas the administration considers to be off-limits to new Israeli construction, using language that reporters noted is usually reserved for terror attacks.

Asked by journalists why the administration stated that it “strongly condemn[ed]” Israel’s plans to advance construction, a phrase ordinarily used “to denounce acts of terrorism,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest replied that the construction “provoke[s] strong feelings in the administration.” In that briefing, Earnest also suggested that Israel betrayed commitments to Washington, while a State Department official separately said Israel would be “cementing… perpetual occupation” if it built the houses.

The latest controversy revolves around construction that the Israelis say is within the already existing Israeli neighborhood Shilo, but that the administration says constitutes a new settlement. Congressional officials who spoke to TWS said that the administration’s condemnation is a pretext for eroding relations with Israel and potentially for setting up a broader diplomatic offensive.

“They’re launching this weird, aggressive campaign that simply will have no positive outcome,” a senior congressional source told TWS. “It’s not an accident that all of this has been going on as Congress goes into recess [and] as attention is diverted by the election.”

The source said that while the administration has engaged in similar behavior against Israel in the past, this case appeared “far more coordinated and aggressive.”

“The president is in the market for a legacy,” the source continued. “I’m very concerned that he’s going to do something that he considers to be dramatic, just to get his name on the process.”

Another congressional source told TWS that President Obama has been “waiting for an opening” to condemn Israel.

“200 housing units in an existing community that did not expand the boundaries at all? That’s not something that should even make the news in Israel, let alone the U.S.”.obama 1

FBI sources say ‘indictment likely’ for Hillary Clinton FBI sources say ‘indictment likely’ for Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton

Reuters

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton will likely face criminal charges over her handling of classified government material on a private email server and allegations of selling influence within the State Department, two separate sources within the FBI claim.

According to a Fox News report published Wednesday night, the two sources said that an indictment of Mrs. Clinton was “likely,” and revealed details of the expanding investigations into the Clinton Foundation and the former Secretary of State’s email server.

The sources reportedly told Fox News that “there is a lot of evidence,” built up in the two cases, and that “barring some obstruction in some way,” they will “continue to likely an indictment,” – though no timeframe was provided by the two sources.

Among the details mentioned by the two sources, who were described as having “intimate knowledge of the FBI investigations,” are the near certainty within the FBI that Mrs. Clinton’s email server was indeed hacked by foreign governments. They said that there was “99%” certainty that the server system was hacked “by at least five foreign intelligence agencies,” adding that material had been stolen in those hacks.

Critics of Mrs. Clinton have often accused her of exposing confidential government files to possible cyber intrusions by hostile entities, arguing that her unprotected home server allowed foreign governments and rogue hackers an easy backdoor into classified State Department information.

Also revealed to Fox News was the breadth of the FBI’s inquiry into the Clinton Foundation, which is apparently far wider and given a higher priority than previously believed, with multiple offices within the agency carrying out separate, simultaneous investigations. According to one of the sources, the amount of evidence being compiled on the Clinton Foundation amounts to “an avalanche coming in every day.”

The prosecution of the Jerusalem District filed an indictment with the District Court against Murad Rajabi, a 20-year-old resident of the Arab neighborhood of Silwan in Jerusalem, for attempted murder and possession of a weapon.

According to the indictment, the terrorist left his house on his motorcycle, equipped with a knife.

Near Hevron Road in southern Jerusalem, he accelerated after noticing several youth who were apparently religious Jews, and crashed into one of them intentionally. The young Jewish man flew up in the air upon impact and suffered three cases of broken bones.

Afterward, Rajabi turned to attack the second youth with his knife and motorcycle helmet and, before he was neutralized, wounded the second youth in the face.

Poverty in Jerusalem what will you do

New report claims 2.6 million Israelis live in poverty

 

A new poverty index, compiled by ERI for Latet and based on basic necessities, found that poverty rates were significantly higher than those reported by the government agency. According to the new index, some 2,546,000 Israelis live below the poverty line – including 932,000 children.

 

The NII report claimed that 1,600,000 Israelis were living in poverty.
The Latet surveys, conducted poor reflect the effects of cutbacks in stipends for children and the increase in sales tax, claimed the foundation’s researchers. They emphasized that the official report only examined 2013, thus missing the recent deterioration in the condition of Israel’s most impoverished citizens.

Will Israel cave on Temple Mount security?

Arab newspaper reports that the Americans have formulated a compromise regarding the means of inspection on the Temple Mount.

Will Israel remove the magnetometers at the entrance to the Temple Mount as a result of international pressure?

The London-based Arabic-language Al-Sharq Al-Awsat newspaper reported on Thursday that the United States is proposing a compromise, whereby the magnetometers will be removed from the entrance to the compound, but visitors will be continue to be carefully inspected by Israeli security guards before being allowed to enter.

The newspaper quoted senior Palestinian Arab officials who claimed that there was agreement on their part to inspect suspicious persons only, but who stressed they would not agree to a situation in which every Arab entering the Temple Mount complex would be inspected.

The latest tensions on the Temple Mount began after Israel announced a series of security measures following last week’s terrorist attack at the compound, in which two Druze Border Police officers were murdered.

The security measures included the placing of magnetometers (advanced metal detectors which are selective in which metals they react to) and additional security cameras around the entrances to the holy site.

These security measures prompted an outcry from the Palestinian Authoritythe Jordanian Waqf and the Jordanian government, which demanded a return to the status quo. In addition, Arab rioters attacked security forces and civilian cars in eastern Jerusalem, injuring two police officers and at least one Jewish civilian.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu made clear on Wednesday that the security measures on the Temple Mount will continue, but added that discussions are being held on how to do this optimally.

Meanwhile, the controversy over the magnetometers within the defense establishment is ongoing. The Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) argues that there is no need for the magnetometers, while the police claim that they are necessary in order to assist in the prevention of terror.

On Wednesday night, the White House published a statement in which it expressed “concern” over the situation on the Temple Mount.

“The United States is very concerned about tensions surrounding the Temple Mount/Haram Al-Sharif, a site holy to Jews, Muslims, and Christians, and calls upon the State of Israel and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan to make a good faith effort to reduce tensions and to find a solution that assures public safety and the security of the site and maintains the status quo,” said a statement from the White House press secretary.

“The United States will continue to closely monitor the developments,” it added.

Watch: New footage of Temple Mount attack

Video shows how terrorists smuggled weapons onto Temple Mount to commit deadly terror attack.

Arutz Sheva Staff, 20/07/17 16:41

תיעוד חדש מזירת הפיגוע בהר הבית

The gag order on last week’s deadly terrorist attack on the Temple Mount was partially lifted Thursday, allowing the publication of more security videos of the attack.

Two Druze police officers were murdered in the attack.

The joint investigation by the Israel Police and the Shin Bet revealed the route by which the three terrorists entered Jerusalem and reached the Old City and the Temple Mount.

According to the investigation, the three terrorists arrived in the capital early Friday morning, along with another accomplice. The terrorists split off when they reached the old city so as not to walk in a group, with the accomplice carrying the weapons used in the attack behind them.

The terrorists entered the Temple Mount separately and made their way to the Al Aqsa Mosque, where they prayed.

After finishing their prayers, the three terrorists left the mosque. One of the terrorists held the bag concealing the weapons.

The accomplice was seen leaving the Temple Mount without the bag after having entered the mount with it.

As they left the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the terrorists continued to walk toward the bathroom compound inside the Temple Mount area, where they changed into long clothes. They left the compound armed with their weapons.

The terrorists opened fire on the policemen who were guarding one of the entrances to the Temple Mount, killing one. They then ran back into the compound.

The police pursued the terrorists and engaged in a shootout with them. Another police officer was killed during the shootout, as were two of the terrorists.

The third terrorist rose again after being shot and attempted to stab police officers before he was shot again and killed.

The commander of the Jerusalem District ordered the closure of the Temple Mount immediately following the attack while police searched the mount for hidden weapons. The police found and confiscated knives, clubs, stun grenades, incendiary materials, slingshots and other weapons.

According to the police, the investigation and the documentation of the terrorists smuggling weapons onto the Temple Mount prove the cynical exploitation of the holy site and the lax security conditions by the terrorists.

The Temple Mount was closed to visitors for two days and reopened on Sunday. However, Muslim worshipers have largely avoided the mount after the Jordanian Waqf, an Islamic trust which oversees the holy site, forbade Muslims from ascending the mount as long as the newly installed metal detectors remain in place.

A security source told Arutz Sheva, “The documentation in the video shows that the government must support the demand of Minister Erdan and allow the metal detectors to remain on the Temple Mount – the metal detectors could have prevented the attack on the Temple Mount.”

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and their wives on Wednesday visited the Dohany Street Synagogue in Budapest and met with Hungarian Jewish community leaders.

Netanyahu told Orban during the visit, I think it’s very important that countries stand against this de-legitimization of Israel, which is the de-legitimization of the Jewish people, and I thank you, Prime Minister Orban, for standing up for Israel in these forums against this new form of anti-Jewish agitation.”

“Yesterday you spoke out against anti-Semitism in Hungary. You spoke about it in its current forms, and you spoke about it also in its previous forms – the sins, as you say, performed by previous governments. You were very open it, including in our conversation. I think this is important. I think this is something that the world has heard. And it’s very clear to me that this something that the world should hear continuously,” added Netanyahu.

“I believe that we have a golden opportunity. I think that the Jewish people are blessed with great ingenuity. Other peoples have it too, but our survival depends on it, and therefore we’ve made it a passion.”

“The Jewish people are like a special kind of tree. We have deep roots in our traditions, in our memory, in our history, in our land. But we grow branches up towards the sky. We ask questions. We bring answers and we keep asking again and answering again.”

“This is a tree with ancient roots and branches for the future. It’s a special combination. I don’t believe that we would achieve our rebirth if we didn’t have both – the memory of ancient times and the hope for better times. And it’s this special combination that now unites us with so many other countries, including here in Visegrad, with Hungary and with others who wish to have a better future,” Netanyahu continued.

“We are proud of our past; we are eager to seize the future together. We shall do so in great friendship, friendship between the State of Hungary and the State of Israel, friendship between the Hungarian people and the Jewish people. And I see this visit here, this meeting here, next to this synagogue, as a testament to this friendship,” he concluded.

At least two soldiers were injured in a ramming attack outside of Kiryat Arba near Hevron Tuesday afternoon.

According to initial reports, an Arab terrorist drove his car into a group of IDF soldiers positioned outside the entrance to the Palestinian Authority-controlled village of Beit Einun, northeast of Hevron.

Two members of the squad were lightly injured in the attack.

MDA and United Hatzalah emergency first responders were called to the scene and treated the injured soldiers. After receiving first aid, the two soldiers were evacuated to Shaarei Tzedek Hospital in Jerusalem.

The terrorist was shot and killed during the attack.

“Together with other EMS teams in the field United Hatzalah volunteers treated two people in their early 20s who were lightly injured during the incident after the attacker had been neutralized by security forces,” said United Hatzalah spokesman Raphael Poch.

MDA paramedic Zachi Yahav described the scene of the attack: “When I got there, I saw two young men, about 20 years old, fully conscious, walking around, suffering from contusions to their lower limbs and faces after being struck by the car.”

Edelstein to Jordanian counterpart: Just keep quiet

Edelstein to Jordanian counterpart: Just keep quiet

Speaker of the Jordanian Parliament praises terrorists who carried out attack on Temple Mount.

 

 

Please shut up

Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein on Monday slammed Jordanian Parliament Speaker Atef a-Tarawana for his remarks in the Jordanian parliament yesterday, in which he praised the three terrorists who committed out the deadly attack on the Temple Mount last Friday.

Two Druze police officers were murdered in the terror attack.

Edelstein said, “Yesterday there was a serious parliamentary incident, even a very serious one.While all of us are still hurting from the attack that took place on Friday on the Temple Mount, in which two young policemen were murdered, Jordanian Parliament Speaker Atef a-Tarawneh stood on the parliamentary platform and said, ‘The Shahids are watering the pure land.’

“It is unthinkable that such a senior figure in a country with whom we have a peace agreement dares encourage the murder of Israeli citizens,” the Knesset speaker said angrily.

Edelstein turned to the Jordanian parliament speaker and said, “Mr. a-Tarawneh, the basic thing that was demanded of you, as a public figure and as a human being, was to condemn this abominable crime. You were supposed to be one of the first to say: It is absolutely forbidden to act violently anywhere – and certainly not to desecrate holy places! And if you couldn’t condemn – it would be preferable if you just kept quiet!”

Edelstein noted that he meets parliamentary leaders all over the world, and always says that his goal is to create frameworks for regional cooperation, along with counterparts in Arab countries. “The kind of statements that were heard yesterday from your mouth distance this goal, and we can only regret that,” the Knesset speaker stressed.

Abbas: China can make contribution to peace process

Ahead of visit to China, PA chairman praises President Xi’s proposal for peace with Israel.

Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas, who will visit China this week, told the Xinhua news agency in an interview on Sunday that he believes China could make a positive contribution to help achieve peace and stability in the Middle East and to promote the development of the political process in the region.

Abbas said that during his meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping, he will place an emphasis on the four-point proposal put forward by Xi in May 2013 for a solution to the conflict with Israel.

The Chinese proposal focused on an independent Palestinian state, negotiations as the only way to peace, the principle of “land for peace”, and guarantees the international community should provide for the progress of the peace process.

Abbas told Xinhua he would discuss this proposal with Xi, as well as the proposals that the Chinese President raised in his address at the Arab League’s headquarters in Cairo, the Egyptian capital, in January of 2016.

He stressed that the Palestinian-Israeli conflict should be resolved through peace talks, and a permanent peace deal should be reached.

The PA insists on an independent state along the pre-1967 borders with eastern Jerusalem as its capital, Abbas told the Chinese news agency.

During a meeting in March with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Xi called for peace between Israel and an independent Palestinian state to be formed “as soon as possible”.

Last year, Xi stated that his country supports the creation of a Palestinian state with eastern Jerusalem as its capital, based on the pre-1967 borders.

China unilaterally annexed the country of Tibet in 1951 and suppressed a 1959-1962 Tibetan rebellion during which major monasteries were destroyed and thousands of monks executed, causing the Dalai Lama to flee the country.

As recently as July 13, the Global Conflict Tracker of the US Council on Foreign Relations wrote: On July 12, 2016, the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague issued its ruling on a claim brought against China by the Philippines, ruling in favor of the Philippines on almost every count. While China is a signatory to the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, which established the tribunal, it refuses to accept the court’s authority.Territorial and jurisdictional disputes in the South China Sea continue to strain relations between China and other countries in Southeast Asia, risking a military escalation.

On Facebook, Tarek Fatah lists 18 ongoing border disputes between China and neighboring countries.

‘The silence of the Arab leaders is outrageous’

President Rivlin blasts Arab MKs for failing to condemn terrorist attack on the Temple Mount.

President Reuven Rivlin on Sunday criticized the Arab MKs for failing to condemn Friday’s terrorist attack on the Temple Mount, in which two police officers were murdered.

“I would like to extend my condolences to the families of the policemen, Haiel Sitawe and Kamil Shnaan. This attack crossed a red line and its immediate goal is to deteriorate the region into a bloody war,” Rivlin said as he spoke at the graduation ceremony at the National Security College.

“The silence and the feeble reactions of some of the Arab political leaders are outrageous. Terrorism must be unconditionally denounces. Those who do not denounce terror – cooperate with it,” the president continued.

“Alongside this, I want to commend the responsible leadership in the entire region for taking clear and responsible steps, including the enlistment of the King of Jordan and the chairman of the Palestinian Authority, who understood the danger well and acted with us to calm things down,” he continued.

The Arab Joint List party has failed to condemn Friday’s attack, which was carried out by three Israeli Arab terrorists who all hailed from the Israeli Arab city of Umm al-Fahm.

Arab MKs have not only failed to condemn terrorist attacks. Many of them have continuously acted against the interests of the state.

Last year, for example, three Joint List MKs visited with families of terrorists who murdered Israelis and later defended their actions.

Recent examples have included Arab MKs openly defying an order from Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu not to visit the Temple Mount, while also urging Arabs to prevent Jews from visiting the site.

One video clip sent to Arutz Sheva showed MK Ahmed Tibi actually striking an Israel Police officer on the Mount – a criminal offense – while another MK, Jamal Zahalka, “orders” police to leave the site.
