Israeli Flags Banned from Jewish-Arab Soccer Game

Wednesday, September 30th, 2015

Police have ordered that no flags, including those of the State of Israel, will be allowed at a soccer match between Beitar Jerusalem and the team from the Galilee city of Sahknin next week.

Fans of Beitar have a reputation for being rowdy and racist, and sometimes violent.

Police said no “non-sport” objects, including flags, will be allowed into the stadium in Sahknin, where fans will undergo a strict inspection before entering.

Approximately 600 policemen will be deployed, in addition to 100 guards, to prevent disorder.

Deri Backs Down on Shabbat Work Halt on New Rail Line

Wednesday, September 30th, 2015

A court order overruling Deri’s “stop work” decision allows Israel Railways to continue maintenance and construction work on Shabbat.

Israeli Railways can continue carrying out maintenance work and construction of the new high-speed Jerusalem-to rail line on Shabbat after the Justice Ministry and the Supreme Court out-maneuvered Shas leader Aryeh Deri, who also is Minister of Economy.

As reported here last week by the JewishPress.com, Deri scored his political points with his Sephardi Hareidi constituency knowing that his stop work order would not last very long.

Deri’s has backed down from his order against work on Shabbat following a Justice Ministry petition to the Supreme Court against the Ministry of Economy. The court obliged and overruled Deri, who then withdrew his order.

He stated:

The permits to be given or extended shall be valid until a different decision is made, given the court proceeding.

Deri had claimed that Israeli Railways did not obtain a legal permit for working on Shabbat, and he ordered that work on the rail line be halted. Israel Railways claimed that Deri’s decision would delay the inauguration of the high-speed train by 2 years, which mathematically does not make any sense but at least gave the company another excuse for another postponement in completing the massive and oft-mismanaged project.

One delay earlier this year was caused by tunnel engineers who were off the mark during work from both ends of one of the tunnels. It returned out that the opening from each end did not meet in the middle.

Thousands at Western Wall for ‘Birkat Kohenim’

Wednesday, September 30th, 2015

Thousands of Jews gathered at the Western Wall (Kotel) Wednesday morning for the “Birkat Kohenim” priestly blessing, and police kept the peace to allow Jews to visit the Temple Mount.

Another 13 Arab Muslims, including five minors, were arrested on charges of trying to create disorder and violence. Nearly 200 have been arrested in Jerusalem since the Rosh HaShanah holiday began two weeks ago.

President Reuven Rivlin and Israel’s chief rabbis plan to be at the Western Wall Wednesday afternoon for the once-in-7-years “Hakhel” ceremony

2 Arab Women Arrested for Temple Mount Rioting in Jerusalem

Tuesday, September 29th, 2015

Israel Police arrested two Arab women on Monday in connection with an attack on Jews earlier in the day in the Old City of Jerusalem, according to Ynet.

One of the female suspects is a resident of Jerusalem’s Old City, and the second lives in Kfar Aqab, in the northern part of Israel’s capital.

Both were arrested and taken from the Temple Mount compound to a nearby police station, where they were questioned by security officials.

In August, a recent U.S. immigrant to Israel was punched in the ribs by a burka-clad Muslim Arab woman while touring the grounds of the Temple Mount.

Because she was wearing a burka, however, as were those who surrounded her as she stepped back into the crowd, it was impossible to immediately identify the woman’s attacker.

Pro-Israel Legislators in Jerusalem to ‘Stand with Israel’

Tuesday, September 29th, 2015

Twenty-two parliamentarians from 18 countries around the world are in Jerusalem for the annual Israel Allies Foundation conference in Jerusalem and will focus on attacking the Boycott Israel (BDS) movement.

They also will discuss the threat of a nuclear Iran on Israel and the Western world, and Jerusalem as the undivided capital of Israel.

The three-day conference starts on Tuesday and is sponsored by the World Jewish Congress (WJC) and the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (ICEJ). Represented countries are Britain, Italy, Slovakia, Holland, Greece, Hungary, Czech Republic, Greece, Finland, Canada, South Africa, Uganda, Guatemala, Uruguay, Dominican Republic, Brazil, Chile and Paraguay.

President Reuven Rivlin, several Knesset Members and Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat will address the visitors on Tuesday.

They will tour Judea and Samaria on Wednesday, including the Rami Levi supermarket between Jerusalem and the communities of Beit El and Ofra. Arabs who work with Jews in the market will speak with the delegation.

The group also will visit Bat Galim Shaer, the mother of one of the boys kidnapped and murdered by Hamas last summer.

On Thursday, the parliamentarians will draft and sign a resolution declaring their support for Israel and vowing to take a stance against racist, anti-Israel movements such as BDS.

Netanyahu to Lash Out in UN at Palestinian Authority Incitement

Monday, September 28th, 2015

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will lash out at Palestinian Authority incitement on the Temple Mount in his speech at the United Nations on Tuesday, government sources reported.

He also will tell an unreceptive Generals Assembly that Israelis are on the front line against the threat of a nuclear Iran. Sources in the office of the Prime Minister said the speech will be very “powerful,” but now that the Iran deal is just about history,

it is doubtful that his appearance will match the attention-getting event three years ago when he drew a picture of Iran’s approaching the “red line” beyond which it cannot be stopped from obtaining a nuclear weapon.

Prime Minister Netanyahu also will blame the Palestinian Authority for the failure of the “peace process.” which is hardly on the back-burner while the Islamic State (ISIS) and Russia’s involvement in the Syrian civil war have become the focus of American worries..

After his speech, he is expected to meet with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and later with Jewish leaders.
