Archaeologists just discovered something unprecedented in Jerusalem
By Leah Rosenberg - May 18, 2020 2114 0
The dirt of Jerusalem (and all of Israel) holds ancient secrets. It reveals history. What archaeologists found this time has never been found.

Archaeologists Uncover Truth
What archaeologists really do is uncover the hidden truth. The dirt and artifacts speak for themselves. The stones and pottery shards shout out the facts. The world may continue to deny the Jewish connection to Jerusalem, but the soil of the holy city will never stop speaking the truth.
Denying Tangible Proof
It is mind-boggling that so many deny such tangible evidence. The world denies the Jewish right to Jerusalem. They want to divide it. Or they want to just give it all to the “Palestinians” who did not even exist during the time periods of these artifacts!
So why do people deny the Jewish people the right to their holy city? It is obviously not because of lack of evidence. All fingers point toward a Jewish Jerusalem for thousands of years.
 
The answer is antisemitism. That is the only explanation for the fact that the world does not want to admit the Jewish people belong in Jerusalem. Or ignorance. But at this point, it seems hard to believe that anyone can be so ignorant.
 
New Discoveries
After all the years of digging, it is remarkable to realize that new discoveries are still being made. It is not the same coin that is being found. It is not the same pottery piece from the same time period.
 
It is a different coin that reveals something different.
 
It is a different pottery piece that points to another time period.
And that is why archaeologists have such an important job and should never stop searching for the truth. The truth keeps being dug up.
History Speaks for Itself
All these discoveries tell a story. They tell history.
Some people might think history is a boring subject. But when history is unearthed and you can feel it with your hands, there is nothing boring about that!

The biggest political scandal of our lifetime
By Phil Schneider - May 19, 2020 4083 0
 
Did President Obama and many of his closest advisors and officials actually plan to destroy Mike Flynn during the transition period between President Trump’s election and the actual inauguration? As of now, it seems that this was indeed an intentional plan to blemish the reputation of President Trump. As Kate McFarlane argued, she and Mike Flynn were just the small fish. But in truth, what Barack Obama and his advisors tried to do was to make sure that President Trump’s reputation would be tarnished from the get-go.
Why OBAMAGATE is Such a HUGE Scandal...

Is this worse than Watergate, where President Nixon was found to have been aware of an attempt to cheat against the Democrats in the 1972 election? There is definitely grounds to this argument. The Obama administration was an idealistic administration that truly was focused on transforming the United States of America and the whole world. In truth, alot was indeed done in the 8 years under Obama to accomplish this. But when Donald Trump was elected under a platform that was squarely based on undoing most of what President Obama deemed accomplishments, this most certainly bothered Obama and many others.
 
On the national security front, people like General Mike Flynn, people with seemingly perfect records, were one of the problems that Obama and his advisors saw. They perceived that Donald Trump was building up his reputation based on the credibility of Generals like Flynn. They saw in him the perfect person to take down, and that seems to be exactly what he and his advisors did.
 
 
In the end, the Obama administration will probably not be viewed as a corrupt 8 years. It will probably be remembered as the progressive high point of the United States. And where did that bring us? The debates will continue. But the spying on Mike Flynn and the fictional accusation about Russian collusion will probably be judged by Democrat and Republican alike as one big hoax.

OPINION – Alastair Campbell: Why I’m playing Hava Nagila on my bagpipes
Ambassador for Time to Change mental health campaign explains how he found a way to promote kindness through music during Mental Health Awareness Week
Alastair Campbell

So, write about kindness, Jonny Benjamin tells me as he takes up the reins of Jewish News for a week.
Ok, will do.
I thought you might say write about mental health, this being Mental Health Awareness Week.

But then kindness is related to mental health, isn’t it?
 
A kinder world is a happier world.
 
But then I also felt I should have a Jewish angle to my kindness angle.
 
I’ve found it in music.
 
Chapter 1: In case you hadn’t heard, I play the bagpipes. I have been playing more in lockdown even than in normal times, which is quite a lot. And before anyone cracks the usual borderline racist anti-bagpipe jokes, my neighbours complain when I don’t play, not when I do.
 
This month I should have been playing at the wedding of Georgia Gould, leader of Camden Council, whom I have known since she was a small child. She and her husband-to-be Alex Zatman, both proud Jews, threw me a pretty tough challenge– ‘bet you can’t play Hava Nagila.’ Georgia knows the best way to get me to do something is tell me I won’t be able to.
 
I googled ‘Hava Nagila on bagpipes’ and it was clear Georgia and Alex were not the first to think this famous Israeli folk song could be played on the pipes. There are all manner of renditions on there, from the tuneful to the hideous, depending on the quality of the player. I then googled ‘Hava Nagila bagpipe sheet music’, and yet again struck lucky.
 
Hava Nagila is hardly a tune written for the pipes, so it took a bit of time to get a proper feel for it, then practise and memorise it sufficiently to feel confident I would do Georgia and Alex proud.
 
Then along comes Covid Bloody 19 and the wedding is off for a year.
Hava Nagila on the bagpipes
Chapter 2: I played my bagpipes outside our house in north London on the first Thursday during which the country came together to clap for carers. I was particularly keen to do so because right next door to us is a Whittington Hospital nurse, Matilda ‘Sissy’ Bridge. She arrived home from work mid-clap, my daughter Grace spotted her and suggested I march her up the street while people were applauding. I did and she loved it and the film of it went viral –  in a good way, not the way of coronavirus.
 
I have played every Thursday since. On week 2, I noticed clapping on the pavement four doors down by our neighbours Maurice Monina, and his partner, Valerie Moss, also proud Jews, and I immediately thought on seeing them … I bet they’ve never heard Hava Nagila on the pipes before, and I bet they’d enjoy it.
They hadn’t; and they did. Dancing in the streets Gospel Oak style.
Next thing I know, I am getting requests emailed and posted on social media. Then Grace tells me she just bumped into Maurice at the corner shop and he asked if I could play Danny Boy. As it happens, I couldn’t. Back to Mr Google. ‘Bagpipe sheet music Danny Boy.’ There it is. Now I can.
 
Coming to a street near you, Thursday 8pm, Hava Nagila followed by Danny Boy, followed by the tune I wrote especially for Sissy, Our Neighbours, Our Nurses. Who would have thought it would take a crisis like Covid to get my bagpipe composing juices flowing? Have the pipes ever been kinder to my neighbours as now? Get good out of bad.

Chief Rabbi: Weddings and stone settings should restart first
Intervention came during first virtual meeting of a taskforce convened by Communities Secretary Robert Jenrick to work up a plan for the safe reopening of religious spaces

Chief Rabbi Mirvis taking part in the meeting with Communities Secretary Robert Jenrick
The Chief Rabbi has urged the UK Government to prioritise weddings and stone settings as it considers the gradual reopening of places of worship amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The intervention from Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis came on Friday during the first virtual meeting of a taskforce convened by Communities Secretary Robert Jenrick to work up a plan for the safe reopening of religious spaces.
Mirvis was among several faith leaders participating on the Places of Worship Taskforce just days after the Government said it hoped to reopen places of worship in Step 3 of its plan to lift restrictions, with 4 July the earliest mooted date.

Any reopening will be subject to further scientific advice, but ministers have recognised “how difficult it has been for people of faith to not be able to practice their religion with their community”.
Members of the taskforce agreed to work together to consider whether some forms of worship, such as individual prayer, might be permitted in places of worship before they fully reopen in step 3, where appropriate and safe.
“During this pandemic, significant spiritual moments such as Easter, Passover, Ramadan and Vaisakhi when families, friends and congregations traditionally gather together, have been celebrated at home,” said Jenrick.
“I realise how challenging being separated from their communities has been for people of faith. We will work together with all faith communities to understand how we can open places of worship as a priority, while continuing to prioritise safety.”
Faith Minister Lord Greenhalgh added that “practical issues such as the size of both physical buildings and congregations are significant”.

Saudi writer reveals a massive secret about “Palestinian” Arabs
By Leah Rosenberg - May 20, 2020 6660 0
This Saudi writer didn’t hold back at all! The truth can hurt. This will enrage “Palestinians.” But at some point, everyone has to admit the truth.
 
Saudi Writer Abdulhameed Al-Ghobain: Saudis Care about National Interests, Not the Palestinian Cause
Saudi Writer Spills the Truth
It is getting hard to hide the truth. Saudi Writer Abdulhameed Al-Ghobain spells it out clearly: Saudi Arabians do not want to side with the “Palestinians” anymore. They see what Israel is, what Israel has accomplished, and they want to join in. They want to accomplish great things as well. And the “Palestinians” have not been showing a promising future. The Saudis are done. They just do not feel they can advance their country by supporting the “Palestinian” cause. It maybe once wasn’t so public, but now it is. The truth is out, loud and clear.
 
The Saudis See – Why Don’t Others?
You would think that Saudi Arabians would support the “Palestinian” Arabs. But they no longer do. And if they are beginning to see the truth about Israel, why can’t others? Why does the Western media still side with the “Palestinian” cause when even the “Palestinians” own brothers and sisters don’t? Why are so-called “human rights” activists still supporting “Palestinian” terrorism instead of seeing how Israel is benefitting the world? There are many questions and not so many answers. It just is baffling.
 
A Model Middle Eastern Country
Here is the truth about Israel. Israel is a beacon of light in the Middle East and the world. It is an example of what a country in the Middle East should look like. Democracy, human rights, culture, nature, medical achievements, and more. Israel gives equal rights to people of all faiths, colors, and religions. How many other countries in the Middle East can you say that about?
 
Israel is not the problem in the Middle East, it is the solution to the problems. Saudi Arabia has realized that. What about the rest of the world?

Shuls may not open for Rosh Hashanah, says Reform chief
Rabbi Janner-Klausner makes the stark warning in powerful piece for Jewish News
By MATHILDE FROT
May 20, 2020, 12:08 pm  
 
Reform rabbi Laura Janner-Klausner
Senior Rabbi Laura Janner-Klausner has urged Reform Judaism’s community leaders to prepare for the possibility it may not be safe to reopen shuls in time for the High Holy Days.
 
Rabbi Janner-Klausner made the stark warning in a letter, published by Jewish News, and sent to synagogue leadership on Wednesday. “We cannot throw our efforts away now,” she said.
 
 
She added: “This means confronting another festival – Shavuot – distanced from one another.

“Realistically it even means facing the idea that we may not be physically together for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur in September, and for our communities to start planning for what that might mean.”
 
She also urged Reform members to take advantage of the “plethora of opportunities to pray, learn and join together virtually with our communities” to celebrate Shavuot next week.
 
In her letter, the senior faith leader noted the sacrifices made by many to practise social distancing as she warned the community must aim for greater vigilance “than society as a whole.”
 
“We already know that the toll this virus has placed on our community – the number of lives we have tragically lost – has fallen heavier on us than on some others. We are, for many reasons, a group at an increased risk. With that comes an increased responsibility on us,” she said.
 
“This crisis has also seen us adapt with the most positive and innovative solutions to maintain our Jewish way of life in a different form. Suddenly we are all streaming tech-whizzes, with services, education and children’s programming from all over the Jewish world available at the touch of a button. As ever, Judaism’s great strength is its ability to innovate and survive,” she added.
 
Even at a distance, she said, members must continue to remain a “source of strength for another” as long as needed.  “No matter wherever we are physically, spiritually our communities will continue to flourish,” she added.

Bibi's perfect response to the rowdy Arab MKs

As Netanyahu tried to speak before the swearing in ceremony of the new unity government, some Arab politicians got a little rowdy. But Netanyahu kept his cool and gave them a symbolic slap in the face with the truth.
Bibi’s perfect response to the rowdy Arab MKs
By Phil Schneider - May 21, 2020 5449 0
 
The only place in the Middle East where an Arab can freely be elected to Parliament and speak their mind is Israel. Benjamin Netanyahu knows this as do the Arab Members of the Knesset. This is a perfect snapshot of what goes on in the Israeli Knesset. It is also a good snapshot of why so many Israelis love Benjamin Netanyahu. He knows how to stand up to Israel’s enemies, and he does it so well. This is not new – he has been doing this for many decades.

Prime Minister Netanyahu began his political career debating against anti-Israel attitudes in the United States. He graduated from MIT following two wars against the Arabs that he participated in. He was a member of Israel’s most elite commando force, and fought against terrorists in various situations. His life has been one long litany of standing up against Israel’s enemies. But he discovered the power of his speech early on and has never stopped using it since.
Israelis have flocked to support Netanyahu in multiple elections over the last 13 years. He has served as Israel’s Prime Minister longer than any other Prime Minister – even David Ben-Gurion. Not only does he never tire. He seems to get stronger and stronger by the day.
What will Netanyahu be remembered for? Will it be the way he has stood up against President Obama and outplayed him for 8 long years? Will it be the way that he fought back against attacks from the Gaza Strip and basically neutralized Israel’s enemies over there? Or will it be the way that he led Israel throughout the Coronavirus pandemic in order to keep the losses to a remarkably low number? Or will it be the historic proclamation that looks like Israel will make to once and for all proclaim that Judea and Samaria is an inseparable part of the State of Israel? The answer is that it will probably be all of the above. But the more time goes on, the greater all of his actions to combat President Obama shine brighter.

Netanyahu: It is time to implement Israel’s sovereignty over West Bank

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the new Israeli coalition government should extend the state’s sovereignty over the occupied West Bank, local media reported yesterday .
“It’s time to apply the Israeli law and write another glorious chapter in the history of Zionism,” Netanyahu said during a meeting for the Knesset General Commission to discuss the swearing in of the new coalition government.
 
“These territories [illegal Israeli Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank] are where the Jewish nation was born and grew,” he said of the settlements.

This, he added, “will not distance us from peace, it will bring us closer.”
 
The Likud leader signed a deal with his rival Benny Gantz of the Blue and White alliance to form a coalition government based on the agreement to annex the illegal Jewish settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories.
 
Arab and Meretz MKs heckled Netanyahu repeatedly during his speech at the Knesset and screamed: “bribery, fraud and breach of trust,” referring to the corruption charges against him.

The truth about the attempted coup against Bibi

The truth about the attempted coup against Bibi
By Phil Schneider - May 26, 2020 
Israel is now going through an unprecedented attempt to bring down Benjamin Netanyahu through whatever means works. Since the electorate continues to elect and reelect Benjamin Netanyahu, the Democratic method of getting Netanyahu out of office has proven to be a dead end. So, a legal coup was decided upon, but there is basically nothing more than an integrity charge based on nothing more than a few gifts that Netanyahu received from wealthy friends. Yes – a few gifts – some cigars and champagne.

Could it actually be a legal problem that should bring down the Prime Minister if he received some cigars and champagne – allegedly in order to do some favors for some people? The Attorney General has decided to “juice up” the charges with thousands of words and hundreds of witnesses. But, there is actually no serious case against the Prime Minister. The Attorney General in Israel is just part of the problem. In truth, the activist Supreme Court in Israel and the entire legal system in Israel is perhaps the most dangerous side of the entire State today.
 
What Israel needs more than anything is genuine checks and balances – not just for the Judicial Branch, but for the Legislative and Executive branch. Israel’s parliamentary democracy is most certainly a Western Democracy. But it is nowhere as balanced as necessary as far as the limits of power that each group has. These are the key problems. One minor Member of Knesset, and certainly 3,4, or 5 members can bring down a government way too easily. This would be akin to a few Congressmen being able to bring down the President of the United States. Secondly, the Prime Minister cannot be stopped by the legislative branch if he decides to implement a policy that is supported by the opposition – even if he was elected based on a completely opposite platform. But the worst of all is the seemingly endless power of the Judiciary. The main problem is that the Judiciary continues to implement whatever their activist opinions are by reappointing their successors. There is no Senate Committee that needs to vote in the Judges. Judges are not elected in any way – they simply reappoint people with their own ideologies in order to perpetuate their opinions on the electorate.
 
Israel is a wonderful government with some wonderful leaders. But, a reset of the limits of the Judiciary need to be fixed. The case against Netanyahu may lead to this.

Turkey: We will not agree to annexation in Judea and Samaria
Turkish President threatens Israel, says "Jerusalem is a red line".
Dalit Halevi , 26/05/20 05:33
Recep Tayyip Erdogan
Recep Tayyip ErdoganReuters
 
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is warning Israel of the consequences of annexing territories in Judea and Samaria, emphasizing that Turkey will not permit “Palestinian land” to be granted to anyone.
 
In a video message to Muslims in the US on the occasion of the holiday of Eid Al-Fitr, Erdogan said Turkey is monitoring Israel's plan to annex land while ignoring Palestinian sovereignty and international law.
 
Erdogan also said that in the eyes of Turkey, the city of Al-Quds (Jerusalem) is a red line for Muslims worldwide.
 
According to a report by the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs and State, Turkey has been increasing its presence in eastern Jerusalem, as can be seen from the appearance of the Turkish flags flying there. Its influence can also be seen in restaurants and local clothing stores.
 
The report also notes that Turkish support for Hamas in Gaza also explains the emergence of Turkish flags among Palestinian Arab protesters on the Gaza border, and that Turkey uses the guise of Muslim "tourism" to gain a foothold on the Temple Mount and other holy sites, possibly with the goal of taking over them.
 
The coalition agreement between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Blue and White chairman Benny Gantz, which stipulates that the government can apply sovereignty over Judea and Samaria this coming July, has caused an uproar in the Arab world.
 
The plan has been condemned by the Palestinian Authority, which says that an application of sovereignty by Israel would be “illegal”.
 
The PA has received the backing of the Arab League, which said several weeks ago that an Israeli proposal to apply sovereignty over parts of Judea and Samaria constituted a "new war crime" against the Palestinian Arabs.
 
 
Saudi Arabia last week denounced Israel’s plans to apply sovereignty over parts of Judea and Samaria, saying it “denounces any unilateral actions, and any violations of internationally- sanctioned resolutions or any measures that might undermine the chances of resuming the peace process to achieve security and stability in the region.”
 
Jordan has threatened to review its relationship with Israel if the Jewish state goes ahead with plans to apply sovereignty over Judea and Samaria.
