editor 3 October 2018

By Jennifer Peltz and Angela Charlton | AP.. UNITED NATIONS — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused Iran on Thursday (September 27, 2018) of keeping a “secret atomic warehouse” just outside its capital, despite the 2015 deal with world powers that was meant to keep it from obtaining nuclear weapons.

Holding up a poster-board map of an area near Tehran as he spoke at the U.N. General Assembly, Netanyahu told world leaders that Iranian officials have been keeping up to 300 tons of nuclear equipment and material in a walled, unremarkable-looking property near a rug-cleaning operation. (more…)

editor 28 September 2018

By Ariel Kahana.. As tensions rise over shooting down of Russian plane in Syria, researcher Zvi Magen says two clear factions have emerged in Russia: One is pleased that Israel is doing the work for Russia and acting against Iran, while the other one sees Iran as an ally. The crisis between Israel and Russia resulting from a Russian military aircraft being shot down over Syria last week is “calculated and artificial, unrelated to reality or the facts, because the Russians want payment,” former Israeli Ambassador to Russia Zvi Magen told Israel Hayom in an interview.

How an Israeli Solar Solution Can Benefit the U.S. and the World

editor 27 September 2018

By Avi Jorisch.. America is undergoing a quiet clean-energy revolution. Renewable resources such as solar, wind, hydro- and nuclear power produce more than a third of the country’s energy, and this sector is growing at a rate several times faster than the national economy. Many would be surprised to learn that this revolution has its roots in research done in the 1950s in Israel, where home use of solar energy has been the norm for decades. [Photo top right: View of the “Halutziot” project, which includes the construction of a 55 megawatt solar power plant as a joint venture of the communities of the new pioneering region established by the families of Gush Katif evacuees, in southern Israel.

The Logic of the West’s New Anti-Semitism Crisis

editor 27 September 2018

By Dr. Alex Joffe.. BESA Center Perspectives Paper No. 957, September 23, 2018

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: The anti-Semitism crises exploding in the British Labour Party and threatening to erupt in the US Democratic Party have complex sources in both the elites and the middle class. These include the logic of socialism, which opposes Jewish difference; rejection of the nation-state, which Jews still embrace; and conventional nineteenth-century beliefs in Jewish greed and conspiracies. Post-colonial guilt has also led to multiculturalism and societal self-mortification through Muslim mass immigration, which has enormously exacerbated anti-Semitism and terrorism. The trends in Europe and Britain portend negative changes in the US for Jews and Israel. [Photo top right: Orthodox jews dressed up in costume and drinking alcohol walk the streets of the ultra orthodox neighborhood of Meah Shearim, during the Jewish holiday of Purim.
