Israel and the United Arab Emirates on Thursday announced the “normalisation of relations” between them – with Israel agreeing not to declare sovereignty over the West Bank and Jordan Valley as a result.
The landmark moment, delivered in a joint statement together with the United States, heralds a new era of diplomatic and economic connections between Jerusalem and the Gulf states, and took political analysts by surprise.
The letter, posted online by Donald Trump, said Israel and the UAE “share a similar outlook regarding threats and opportunities in the region,” in reference to Iran-sponsored militias and regimes.

Describing it as “an historic diplomatic breakthrough” that required “courage” from both Israel and Abu Dhabi, they said agreements would be signed in the coming week that would cover investment, tourism, direct flights, security, telecoms, energy, healthcare, the environment “and other areas of mutual benefit”.
It will also lead to the creation of an Emirati embassy in Israel and an Israeli embassy in Abu Dhabi – a first for both Gulf states and Jerusalem – while stipulating a halt on Israeli sovereignty claims, in order to pursue further bilateral relations.
“As a result of this historic breakthrough and at the request of President Trump with the support of the United Arab Emirates, Israel will now suspend declaring sovereignty over areas outlined in the President’s Vision for Peace and focus its efforts now on expanding ties with other countries in the Arab and Muslim world.”
ANALYSIS: US-Israel-UAE deal is a win-win-win. 
Board of Deputies’ president Marie van der Zyl said: “I warmly welcome the normalisation of ties between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. This is a historic development and an important step for prosperity, peace and security in the region.”

Israel and UAE recently raised eyebrows by agreeing to work together on medical efforts to combat the coronavirus, including a vaccine, and said they would “immediately expand and accelerate cooperation” in this area.
It remains to be seen whether other Sunni Muslim kingdoms in the Gulf will follow the UAE’s lead in normalising relations with Israel, but the three signatories said they were “confident that additional diplomatic breakthroughs” in the region.
Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, 59, has ruled the Emirate of Abu Dhabi since 2004 and been the region’s most active in facilitating external relations with countries such as France, Singapore and Russia, even mediating between Washington and Moscow, while in 2010 he hosted The Queen.
He is a driving force behind military efforts to remove the Iran-backed Houthi militia from Yemen and voiced anger at President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran.

Turkey: President Erdogan threatens to suspend diplomatic ties with UAE over deal with Israel
By Pamela Geller - on August 14, 2020
There’s nothing a wannabe caliph hates more than peace. Jihad today, yesterday, tomorrow…. forever.
And Islamic Jew-hatred is a central tenet of Islam.
Erdogan threatens to suspend diplomatic ties with UAE over deal with Israel
We could withdraw our ambassador,’ Turkish president tell reporters of potential response
By: i24, August 13, 2020:
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday that Turkey could suspend diplomatic relations with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) after the announcement of a landmark deal between Israel and the Gulf state.
“I gave an order to the foreign minister. I said we could suspend diplomatic relations with the Abu Dhabi administration or withdraw our ambassador,” Erdogan told reporters.
In the deal announced on Thursday by the US, Israel pledged to suspend its planned annexation of Palestinian lands in exchange for a normalization of ties with the UAE.
The Palestinian Authority (PA) on Thursday announced the “immediate” recall of its ambassador to the UAE in protest at the deal.
Erdogan, a pious Muslim, is a strong advocate of the Palestinians who has frequently criticized Israeli policies in the West Bank and Gaza.
Earlier this year he criticized Washington’s Middle East peace plan for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as “treason.”
“History will not forget those who betray the Palestinian people and sell out the Palestinian cause,” Erdogan’s spokesman, Ibrahim Kalin, tweeted on Friday. “Turkey will continue to stand by the Palestinian people.”

Anti-fascists warn of new antisemitic group with neo-Nazi adherents
Hope Not Hate raises alarm over Patriotic Alternative, which was created by a former BNP activist who described the Holocaust as the ‘alleged extermination of six million Jews’

Anti-fascist campaigners in the UK have warned of a virulent new far-right group that spreads Holocaust denial in its efforts to push a white nationalist agenda.
Researchers at Hope Not Hate (HNH) reported this week on the threat from Patriotic Alternative (PA), an antisemitic group with neo-Nazi adherents created in 2019 by Mark Collett, the former head of publicity for the British National Party.
HNH researcher Simon Murdoch said: “Collett is a longstanding antisemite who has spoken sympathetically of Nazi Germany, described the Holocaust as the ‘alleged extermination of six million Jews’, and has regularly collaborated with David Duke, a former leader in the Ku Klux Klan.”

PA is described in the report as “a racist far-right organisation with antisemitism at its very core” which aims to combat what it says is the “replacement and displacement” of white Britons by people who “have no right to these lands”.

Its supporters hold fast to a conspiracy theory that Jewish elites are the driving force behind this ‘replacement and displacement’, with PA’s manifesto saying: “No minority should ever be allowed to wield disproportionate power over the British people or hold disproportionate influence over or within the government.”
In a nod to some well-worn antisemitic tropes, the group warns of “unscrupulous lenders or predatory providers of financial services” and says Britain “should never be used as a pawn for foreign powers”.
Several members were unabashed about their Holocaust denial in group messages, the HNH report detailed. One wrote: “Public Service Announcement: A factoid is a claim that is widely accepted as fact through repetition but isn’t necessarily (and often isn’t) true, such as the Holocaust.”
Another described the Holocaust as “the single most overhyped event in history,” adding: “The West has been blinded since 1945 by the Holocaust story but this is wearing off.” Yet another said: “We’re finding out that more and more Holocaust survivors… Survived. Almost like as if the Holocaust never happened…”
Collett, a proud fan of National Socialism, published a book in 2017 describing the “alleged extermination of six million Jews”, adding: “When it comes to the notion of white guilt, nothing is pushed more strongly.”
Murdoch said: “PA are smaller and less influential than they claim and their longevity is uncertain, but they are certainly one of the fastest rising threats in the UK far right.”

 The Stunning Peace Deal Between Israel And The UAE A Prelude To Formally Dividing The Land Of Israel?
Aug 17, 2020 09:17 am
Is The Stunning Peace Deal Between Israel And The UAE A Prelude To Formally Dividing The Land Of Israel?
(OPINION) Michael Snyder – Last week’s surprise announcement of a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates caught just about everyone by surprise. I hadn’t heard anything about a potential deal in the works, and the mainstream media in the western world was completely blindsided by the deal.
But this has become Israel’s pattern in recent decades. The Oslo Accords, Israel’s peace deal with Jordan and other agreements were negotiated under a cloak of total secrecy because officials didn’t want the public sentiment to potentially destroy negotiations.
President Trump is touting this as a major diplomatic victory, and he is hoping that it will sway some votes in November.  At this juncture, Trump is trailing badly in most polls and he needs another miracle as we witnessed in 2016. But it was really Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that was the driving force behind this deal.
He has been seeking to build relations with the UAE for many, many years, and this deal is the culmination of those efforts. In order to get this deal, however, Netanyahu had to agree not to annex any land in the West Bank…
The United Arab Emirates has normalized relations with Israel in a historic US-brokered deal that “suspends” Israeli annexation of occupied land sought by the Palestinians for their future state. The surprise agreement, initially announced by the US president, Donald Trump, makes the UAE the first Gulf country and only the third Arab nation in the world to have active diplomatic ties with Israel, joining Egypt and Jordan.
This is a very odd development because too many people it seemed like Netanyahu was dead set on annexing portions of Judea and Samaria. In fact, he specifically promised to do so during the last election. Could it be possible that all of that rhetoric was just a negotiating ploy?
If Israel had really gone ahead and annexed those lands, it would have killed any international efforts to create a Palestinian state. But now that annexation is completely dead, the potential for a “peace deal” that would create a Palestinian state is very much alive.
According to the New York Times, the relationship between Israel and the UAE “had been building quietly for years”, and according to a British news source this peace agreement will also open a door for “deals on direct flights, security, telecommunications, energy, tourism, and healthcare”…

Peace Between Israel And UAE Revealed in Bible Codes According to Rabbi
Aug 17, 2020 | 0  |     
Peace Between Israel And UAE Revealed in Bible Codes According to Rabbi
(OPINION) ETH – An alleged “Bible Code Expert” named Rabbi Mattityahu Glazerson has come out recently and claimed that within just hours after the newly-minted peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates was announced, he was able to discover what he called “the best appearance” of the Hebrew word ichud which means unity and the Hebrew for Emirates.
“It’s unbelievable. It came once in the Torah in a significant way,” he noted. Glazerson claims he found the codes where God told Abraham that Isaac would be born to him and Sara and that, though Ishmael (the Biblical ancestor of Arabs) would be blessed with material prosperity and large populations, God’s covenant would remain eternally with the descendants of Isaac (the Jewish nation).
Then God said: “No, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his descendants after him. And as for Ishmael, I have heard you. Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly. He shall beget twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation.
– Genesis 17:19-20
The rabbi claimed that 840, which is the numerical value of shematicha (I have heeded you), corresponds to the number of years the Arabs would have control of the Land of Israel. This word appears in the Hebrew in Genesis 17:20. BIN states:
“In other words, embedded in the Hebrew is a promise that God will bless Ishmael’s descendants with dominion over the Land of Israel for 840 years. We find this hint in the exact verse where God promises Abraham that, although the eternal covenant rests with Isaac and his descendants, the descendants of Ishmael will also benefit from Divine favor".

Outstanding GCSEs for Jewish schools but one refuses to publish results
Jewish secondary schools shared in the UK’s record-breaking 2020 GCSE grades as results came in on Thursday, but last year’s top performer has not made its results public.
August 20, 2020, 3:40 pm  1
Jewish secondary schools shared in the UK’s record-breaking 2020 GCSE grades as results came in on Thursday, but last year’s top performer refused to publish this year’s results.
Several Jewish schools reported their “best ever” years as nationally the grades surged, the government having earlier cancelled students’ summer exams as part of a suite of measures designed to stop the spread of coronavirus.
Exams regular Ofqual had tried to moderate the marks using an algorithm, but when this was widely discredited it prompted an embarrassing U-turn on grading method, reverting to teachers’ verdicts of pupils’ abilities. The confusion prompted a vicious blame game involving ministers, unions, and bureaucrats – and stress for students.

Nationally, the number awarded Grade 7 or above rose from a fifth to a quarter, while those getting the best marks shot up by almost 40 percent on last year, as policy chiefs said the crisis had sparked runaway grade inflation that would only hurt future years’ students.
This is the third year of the new 1-9 grading system, with 7 the equivalent of the old A-grade, 8 the equivalent to an A* and 9 amounting to an A** rating.
Cross-denominational New Barnet school JCoSS said more students than ever had scored Grade 9 (19 percent, compared to 18 percent last year), while at fee-paying Immanuel Year 11 students had “the best grades in the College’s history”.
However, Hasmonean – the best-performing Jewish secondary last year – refused to publish its GCSE grades, issuing only a comment from Hasmonean Multi-Academy Trust chief executive Andrew McClusky about 2020 having been “extremely challenging”. The school issued a financial warning three month ago.
At Yavneh in Borehamwood, results spring-boarded back to the College’s best, with 54 percent graded 7-9, compared to 44 percent in 2018, and 50 percent in 2018, while at Kantor King Solomon (KKS) in Barkingside, 31 percent of grades were awarded 7-9, with three quarters at Grade 4 or more.
Pipping Yavneh to the post however was JFS, where 57 percent of grades were 7-9, with 37 percent graded 9-8. More than a fifth of its Maths and Religious Studies students got a Grade 9, while a third of its science students could do no better. Like JCoSS, the school said that “a small number of grades were moderated up by the exam board”.
At Immanuel, 88 percent of grades were 6 or higher, an improvement of four percent on last year, with 34 students averaging Grade 8 or higher, but while there was happiness at the results, most headteachers made reference in their comments to the chaos surrounding students’ grading this year.
KKS headteacher, Hannele Reece, said it had been “a very difficult year for students” with no exams this summer, while Yavneh head Spencer Lewis spoke of “an incredibly difficult six months”.
He added: “The constant changes in government and exam board policies and approach over recent days have been very unfair on the pupils”.
Likewise, Immanuel’s headmaster Gary Griffin slammed “government incompetence” which JCoSS head Patrick Moriarty said had led to “huge uncertainty and difficulty, especially during the past week’s confusion over the awarding of results”.
He added: “We advocated strongly for the use of teacher grades… We are pleased that the change of policy came in time to reward these students with clarity and greater fairness.”
Jewish families also were left fuming at the way this year’s results were handled, with West Finchley resident Les Talisman, whose daughter Leah got the grades she needed, describing it as “a fiasco” causing unnecessary stress.
He said: “This Government handled it so badly. Why they never went for teacher-assessed grades, or even mock results in the first place beggars belief. Pupils feel let down and rightly so. It has brought unnecessary stress to many families.”
Talisman, whose mother-in-law once taught at Immanuel, adding: “I imagine this fiasco has come at great financial cost to the country, and think it will have a long-lasting effect in people’s minds. This incompetent shower of arrogant politicians won’t be in government past the next general election.”

Positive views outweigh anti-Jewish sentiment among Muslims, UK report finds
Nearly half of all Muslim adults surveyed (45 percent) perceived Jewish people positively, according to a survey released by HOPE Not Hate

A wide-ranging survey of Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) adults across Great Britain has found pockets of anti-Jewish sentiment were outweighed by positive views among Muslim respondents.
Nearly half of all Muslims surveyed (45 percent) were found to perceive Jewish people positively, according to an online survey of 1,001 BAME adults, released by the anti-racism charity HOPE Not Hate on Thursday.
But the survey also found the highest proportion of anti-Jewish views among Muslim respondents (18 percent), followed by atheists (11 percent), Christians (5 percent) and Hindus (4 percent).

Muslims, who were the most negatively viewed group overall, were also more likely to perceive Jewish or Hindu extremism as a threat (both 31 percent).

The weighted sample survey, conducted in July by polling company Focaldata, does not include any data about Jewish public opinion owing to a small sample size in the community, HOPE Not Hate said.

Stronger action on hate crime was seen as the best way to improve community relations (35 percent), together with increasing anti-racism education in schools (34 percent).

Other popular solutions included a crackdown on extremism across communities (25 percent), initiatives to bring together people from different backgrounds (22 percent) and holding outlets to account for publishing racist material (22 percent).

HOPE not Hate deputy director Jemma Levene said the figures shouldn’t be allowed “to be used to startle people in our community.”

“They were substantially outweighed by positive feelings,” she said. “Of course, we shouldn’t shy away from honest and difficult conversations about antisemitism, but we see time and time again that when different groups have the opportunity to interact in meaningful ways, their mutual views of each other improve exponentially.”

“Our organisation’s experience shows us clearly that the majorities of both Muslim and Jewish communities wish to live together in friendship and peace, so good interfaith and intercommunity interactions are more important than ever so we can all learn not just how to build together but also disagree without falling prey to prejudice,” she added.

Raab tells Palestinian Authority: It’s time to work with Israel
Foreign secretary uses a meeting with Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah to call for closer co-operation with Israel, following decision to suspend annexation plans for the West Bank.
Dominic Raab used a meeting with the Palestinian Authority president this week to urge closer co-operation with Israel, following the decision to suspend annexation plans for the West Bank.

The foreign secretary’s visit to the Middle East follows the normalisation of relations this month between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), which came with the suspension of Israeli annexation plans of the West Bank – a move the UK Government welcomed as a boost for peace in the region.

On Tuesday, the Cabinet minister met Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah, as part of a wider visit to the Occupied Palestinian Territories and Israel.
He encouraged the Palestinians to “re-engage” with Israel following developments in the Middle East, brokered by the US, this month.

The UAE and Israel are set to establish diplomatic ties in a deal that halted planned annexation of occupied land sought by the Palestinians for their future state, it was announced on August 13.

A Foreign Office spokesman said: “The Foreign Secretary used his discussions with President Abbas to set out the UK’s unwavering commitment to a two-state solution.

“In their meeting, the Foreign Secretary encouraged President Abbas to re-engage in direct discussions with Israel given the suspension of annexation plans.

“They discussed the twin challenges that Covid and the excessive constraints of Israeli occupation were placing on the Palestinian people.

“The UK has provided long-standing development support to the Occupied Palestinian Territories and the Foreign Secretary set out further contributions today to help alleviate the impacts of coronavirus.”

In Israel, the Foreign Secretary had been due to meet his counterpart, foreign minister Gabi Ashkenazi, hold bilateral talks with minister of defence and alternate prime minister Benny Gantz, and under-pressure prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The Israeli prime minister declared earlier this month that, while President Donald Trump’s US administration had asked that Israel put its West Bank annexation plans on hold to move forward with the UAE agreement, there was “no change” to his government’s long-term annexation plans.

 • Parliamentary supporters of Israel have written to Dominic Raab to urge the UK to stop Iran from buying conventional weapons again. In a letter from Conservative Friends of Israel (CFI), Raab was told that the UK’s decision not to extend the arms embargo due to expire on 18 October 2020 was “deeply regrettable”.

David Icke, who claims ‘Rothschilds planed virus’, addresses anti-lockdown demo
Conspiracy theorist who also says the world is run by giant shape-shifting reptiles appeared on stage with Jeremy Corbyn's brother.
August 30, 2020, 1:45 pm  2
Conspiracy theorist David Icke, who believes the world is run by giant shape-shifting reptiles, has addressed hundreds of anti-lockdown protesters in Trafalgar Square.
The former football commentator, who is banned from Australia for Holocaust denial, recently faced accusations of antisemitism from anti-racism and Jewish groups.
In May the Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH)  unveiled a report  alleging Icke is spreading “dangerous misinformation” about Covid-19, including the claim that “Sabbatian Frankists” and the Rothschilds are behind, or helped plan, the outbreak.

He also believes Israel is using the pandemic to “test its technology”.
Also among those present at the “Unite for Freedom” rally on Saturday were the brother of the former Labour Party leader, Piers Corbyn.
Prior to the demonstration, in which protesters displayed anti-mask and anti-vaccination placards, police “strongly advised” people to avoid large gatherings for their own safety. “We are still in the middle of a global pandemic,” it said. “If you attend a gathering of more than 30 people, you may be committing an offence, which is punishable by a fine. We all need to continue to do our part to prevent the spread of the virus.”
Icke’s 1995 book, And the Truth Shall Set You Free, focused on a global conspiracy by “Rothschilds and Rockefellers” and contained a chapter questioning aspects of the Holocaust and criticising society for suppressing “alternative information to the official line of the Second World War.”
