A United Nations “fact-finding” human rights commission has come up with a quick and simple answer to the Palestinian Authority’s designation of the “war crime” of 600,000 Jews living in homes on land that never belonged to the PA: Expel them.
Concluding that Jews have no rights in Judea and Samaria or half of Jerusalem, the human rights panel stated, “Israel must … cease all settlement activities without preconditions [and] must immediately initiate a process of withdrawal of all settlers.”
The panel’s findings were a foregone conclusion after the Palestinian Authority complained to the United Nations in December of the “war crimes.” The committee interviewed 50 people who came to Jordan to testify against Israel. It is not known if the council interviewed Jews or researched documents that show that Arabs took away homes on land that was purchased by Jews years before the re-establishment of the State of Israel in 1948.
The Israeli Foreign Ministry dismissed the report’s conclusions as “systematically one-sided and biased” and added, “Counterproductive measures, such as the report before us, will only hamper efforts to find a sustainable solution to the Israel-Palestinian conflict.”
The Palestinian Authority’s next step may be to try to take Israel to the International Criminal Court.

Yet another hypocrite who directed the world to sever ties with Israel until the moment he needed what Israel had to offer. And Israel provided even Sarraj with its best medical care. #BDSFail #ApartheidFail

The Attorney General, Yehuda Weinstein, has decided not to appeal Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman’s acquittal.

JERUSALEM – A week after a massive pre-winter rain and snowstorm struck Israel, large portions of the country, including Jerusalem and its environs, are still struggling to return to normal daily life.
The snowballs are gone and the rocks are back. An adult and child were lightly injured from shattered glass after their car was hit by a rock on the Cross-Benjamin highway. After getting hit, the driver continued to the next IDF checkpoint where they were treated by an IDF medic.

Israelis have prayed for rain in a dry November and now are getting the dividends in spades, thanks to a rare early winter storm “from Russia with love.”
The Red-Dead Sea Project signed in Washington is a multi-billion dollar excuse for a political project that might not have any necessity if Israel were to start using one of its new resources – water.
We don’t pretend to know how and why God works, but it can be speculated that the financial disaster of Israel’s giant IDB was the way for a Chabad Jew to enter Israel’s secular Big Business elite.
