The Enemies of Israel are the Enemies of God (Psalm 83)

Annex Judea-Samaria now to defeat terror

Avi Roeh, head of the Yesha Council in Judea and Samaria, on Sunday called on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to implement Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria precisely during the current Arab terror wave.

Roeh was paying a visit to the protest tent outside the Prime Minister's Residence in Jerusalem, which was established by the Women in Green grassroots activist movement to demonstrate against the government's inability to quash the terror wave.

"I call on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and the Israeli government - the time has come for sovereignty," declared Roeh at the tent.

"It is impossible to ignore the historic moment we are currently in, when the international community, the Europeans, the Americans, understand that the concept of 'two states for two peoples' is a particularly unsuccessful idea," he said.

According to Roeh "this is the right time to take a significant, historic decision for the nation of Israel."

"We call on the Prime Minister, be strong to implement sovereignty in Judea and Samaria. In this way you will be remembered as the one who implemented sovereignty, as the one who widened the borders of the state of Israel to the legitimate borders that we reached in blood," he said, noting on how the region was liberated in the 1967 Six Day War.

"We are 50 years after the Six Day War, and the time has come for an Israeli leader standing at the head of the Jewish state to decide to implement sovereignty on the territories of Judea and Samaria," emphasized Roeh.

"In this way, we will remove the tension that the Arabs have kept in Judea and Samaria from any ideas of an additional state and they will work on the education of their children, economy, welfare and not terror that doesn't bring them anywhere."

Regarding Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria, there have been calls recently on the government to adopt the 2012 Levy Report, which proved the Jewish presence in the region is legal according to international law. The report would be a logical first step in implementing sovereignty.

Prominent Rabbis Sternbuch, Amar Hint that the Messiah is “Just Around the Corner”

Two prominent rabbis in Israel – Rabbi Moshe Sternbuch and Rabbi Shlomo Moshe Amar – have hinted in public that the Messiah is “just around the corner” based upon certain world events taking place today.

Rabbi Sternbuch, vice president of the Rabbinical Court and head of the Eidah Charedit organization in Jerusalem, recently said that people should “put on their Shabbat clothes in preparation for the Messiah.”

As reported by the Hebrew language website Kikar Shabbat, Rabbi Sternbuch was giving over his regular weekly lesson when he began to relate the arrival of the Messiah to the recent conflict between Turkey and Russia. He concluded that in the context of this conflict, we should anticipate the Messiah.

“We have received a direct teaching, passed down from one to another, from the Gaon of Vilna, that when Russia goes and conquers Istanbul, the capital of Turkey, it is time to quickly put on your Shabbat clothes and expect the Messiah,” he said.

“Here we have Russia and Turkey in a conflict with each other. We hear sounds of war. All of the nations seem so surprised that Turkey began a fight with Russia,” Rabbi Sternbuch explained.

“But we see in this the realization of the teachings of the sages, that when the Messiah needs to come, God will incite nations against each other, until, against their will, there will be a war. Therefore, as the Shmittah goes out, we should have great inspiration to wake up and repent.”

Touching upon a teaching taught by the Jewish sages, Rabbi Sternbuch reflected on the persecution the Jews will face from the Arab nations as part of the messianic process.

“It is also written that before the Messiah comes, Israel will suffer greatly from the sons of Ishmael (Arabs) and they will succeed in antagonizing us. We are at a crossroads and we need to pray to God to redeem us. We have to wake up and repent or, if not, God forbid, the Ishmaelites will overcome us.”

“This is precisely the time to repent and pray,” he said. “Messiah is just around the corner and is waiting to arrive. It is impossible to understand how a country like Turkey can start a war and refuse to apologize. They are crazy! God is confusing them, therefore we need to strengthen ourselves in repentance so we will merit a true redemption very soon.”

In a related report on Kikar Shabbat, Rabbi Amar, the Chief Sephardic Rabbi of Jerusalem and former Sephardic Chief Rabbi of Israel, was quoted as saying that the world is currently in the closest possible moment for the arrival of the Messiah.

Speaking at an assembly of followers of the Hassidic Chabad movement in Kfar Chabad, Rabbi Amar said, “We are at the closest possible period to the Messiah. We have never been this close to the revelation of the Messiah before. All the signs given by the prophets, the early and later sages, and what is written in the Zohar (the basis of Kabbala), are in place for us. All of the great men of the last generations, and at their head is my rabbi [Rabbi Ovadia Yosef], they said ‘Behold, he is standing just around the corner’. We just have to stay strong.”

Rabbi Amar quoted a teaching from the last Chabad leader, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, in which he warned that the time before the messiah will intensify conflict around the world. “There will come a time when we won’t be able to sleep because of all the troubles that will befall us,” Rabbi Amar related.

Iowa Votes to Block State Funds from Boycotting Israel

The Iowa House of Representatives passed a bill prohibiting the state from investing in companies that boycott Israel.

A bill passed on Tuesday by the Iowa House of Representatives – 70-24, with six abstentions – would prohibit state agencies from investing in or contracting with companies that have publicly boycotted Israel, the Des Moines Register reported.

Since 2005, several Palestinian political groups and unions have been urging companies and government agencies to join the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel.

Republican Rep. Quentin Stanerson said that no U.S. companies are currently boycotting Israel, according to the Register; however, Democratic Rep. Dennis Cohoon, who served on the three-person subcommittee for the bill, said the bill was important nonetheless and that it was better to act preemptively should the issue become a threat.

In February, a bipartisan bill, known as the Combating BDS Act of 2016, was introduced into both Houses of Congress that would protect the rights of state and local governments to withdraw their business from companies or entities that engage in BDS.

Relocation of Arabs may be Israel’s only Remaining Option


'Consideration should be given even to the heroic remedy of transfer of populations […] the hardship of moving is great, but it is less than the constant suffering of minorities and the constant recurrence of war' – US president Herbert Hoover, 1943.

The relentless murder of Israeli Jews and the irreparable collapse of the peace process means that Israel and the international community must now consider the “heroic remedy” of population transfer.

After decades of terrorism, it is clear that the majority of Arabs in Judea-Samaria and east Jerusalem are incapable of living alongside their Jewish neighbours. The failure of the Oslo Accords, the rampant criminality inside the Palestinian Authority, as well as decades of Islamic terrorism and anti-Semitic incitement, clearly demonstrate that Jews cannot afford the liberal luxury of uninhibited co-existence with an Arab population that clings to the fascistic and immoral ideology of Palestinianism.

It is important to remember that Palestinianism is not a genuine liberation movement. It is an anti-Semitic strategy designed to undermine the legitimacy and security of the Jewish state. The invention of Palestinianism – which is symbolised by the invention of the Nakba and the ambition to divide Jerusalem – is a political tool intended to undermine Israel’s existence and security. The absurd notion that the “Palestinians” are the indigenous people of a country called “Palestine” is a fabrication designed to undermine the moral and legal foundations of the world’s only Jewish state. The Arabs have rejected the possibility of peaceful co-existence with Jews and it’s pointless to pretend otherwise.

Since the start of the 21st century, the Palestinian Arabs have had three major opportunities to establish an independent state. Yasser Arafat walked away from the Camp David talks in 2000 despite being promised 92 per cent of the so-called West Bank, 100 per cent of Gaza and east Jerusalem. Talks held in Taba in 2001 also broke down due to Arafat’s irrational insistence that the Palestinians control the Western Wall. A resolution was also put forward by the Israelis in 2008, in which the Arabs would receive Gaza, the majority of the West Bank, parts of east Jerusalem, safe passage between the West Bank and Gaza, and the dismantling of settlements in the Jordan Valley and eastern Samaria. Unfortunately, Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas did not give a final response on the matter and negotiations ended.

Instead of agreeing to any of these generous proposals, Arafat and Abbas have provoked – or sponsored – terror attacks against Israeli (and other Western) civilians. They have repeatedly called for the destruction of the Jewish state and have manipulated Western guilt over the Holocaust by casting themselves as the “new Jews” deserving of sympathy and foreign aid. Instead of planning for the future, Arab schoolteachers and television programmes teach children to hate and kill Jews. Meanwhile, Arab terrorists behave like “wild beasts,” roaming the country looking for Jews to stab. The situation is intolerable and cannot be allowed to continue. There is only option left on the table – and that is the transfer of the Arab population out of east Jerusalem and Judea-Samaria.

Back in 2009, Daniel Pipes, a respected Middle East commentator, opposed the idea of “transfer,” that is, forcibly moving Arabs out of Judea and Samaria. Pipes claimed it was “morally wrong” because “a government cannot force people to leave their homes only because they speak the wrong language, have the wrong faith, or pursue the wrong politics.” Yes, it is true that language is not a good reason to expel the Arabs. But he is wrong to suggest that religion and political beliefs are not relevant. On the contrary, the religion of Islam and the anti-Semitic politics of Palestinianism and Arab nationalism are the driving forces behind the murder of innocent Jews. Until Palestinianism is snuffed out in Ramallah, Hebron, Bethlehem, Nablus and Jericho, the murder of men, women and children will continue unabated.

Pipes’ second objection is that forced expulsion would “turn Israelis against their state” and that some Israelis would leave Israel. Good. If radical left-wing anti-Zionist Israelis want to leave Israel, let them do so. Does Israel need people like Ezra Nawi, a Jewish far-left activist and a convicted statutory rapist who helps Palestinian authorities find and kill Arabs who sell land to Jews? Does Israel need people like Gideon Levy, a Haaretz journalist who supports the economic, cultural and academic boycott of Israel? If such people want to leave Israel, let them leave. Dissent is one thing but supporting an enemy entity that wishes to destroy the Jewish homeland is treason.

Pipes’ third objection is that forced expulsion of the Arabs would infuriate the United States. He has a point, but isn’t America already hostile to the State of Israel? Obama has thrown Israel under the bus on several occasions. Who’s to say that a future Democratic or even a Republican president won’t be hostile to Israel? Israel has already started to pivot itself towards the East by building links with India and China. Besides, if America’s power and influence continue to wane over the coming decades, Israel will have no choice but to build new alliances with emerging powers.

Pipes’ final point is that expulsion would inflame the Arab enemy. To my mind, it seems a bit late to start worrying about rousing the passions of Arab nations who have spent the best part of a century agitating against the Jewish homeland. Whatever Israel does, the Arabs are against it. The Arabs need no excuse to demonise or attack Israel, so Israel may as well take action now in order to secure its future.

Hamas members demonstrate in the West Bank

The status quo cannot be allowed to continue. The stabbing intifada, the history of Arab rejectionism and Israel’s indefensible borders illustrate that an Arab state in Judea and Samaria is impossible. And Caroline Glick’s dream of a single Israeli state with a large Arab population having Israeli citizenship is now unthinkable. After decades of terrorism, it is inconceivable that the Arabs who reside in Judea and Samaria can live peacefully alongside their Jewish neighbours. Apart from the death toll, billions of dollars have been wasted propping up the Palestinian Authority.

The only option – indeed the most humanitarian option – must be something along the lines of the solution proposed by Professor Martin Sherman. He believes that Israel and the international community should provide generous relocation grants to Arabs who currently live in the Israeli administered territories, with the proviso that this is done on an individual/family basis and not via any official Palestinian organisation such as the PA, which should be dismantled. The grants would help the Palestinian Arab families build a better life for themselves in third-party countries of their choice.

There is some evidence that such a plan could work. A poll commissioned in 2004 by the Jerusalem Summit (and conducted by Maagar Mohot and The Palestinian Center For Public Opinion) showed that over 40 per cent of Palestinian Arabs in the territories had considered emigration, while up to 50 per cent were amenable to the possibility, even without any material inducements. Significantly, the figure grew to more than 70 per cent when material compensation was suggested. These findings were substantiated by a poll conducted by Bir Zeit University, which showed that nearly half the Palestinian youth would emigrate if they had the opportunity.

In the words of Professor Sherman, “Each household breadwinner would be confronted with three possible choices: life under the rigors of Israeli rule; life under the harrowing hardships of some Palestinian regime, with commensurately dimmer prospects of a better life for the family; or a sum of money equivalent to the life earning of an average citizen in countries that could serve as an appropriate alternative place of residence – probably, but dominantly Arab or Muslim countries in the Middle East and North Africa, or countries with significant Arab/Moslem communities in sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia.”

Arabs who choose to remain in the so-called West Bank would be categorised as resident aliens or offered Israeli citizenship – but only after being subjected to rigorous security checks. Moreover, they would be asked to swear allegiance to the Jewish state. Refusal to do so, as well as any act of terrorism or insurrection, would result in the offender being deported, along with his or her dependents, and without compensation.

I would also add that Arabs who currently live inside the Green Line, i.e. in Israel ‘proper,’ should be allowed to stay, but acts of terrorism or incitement should result in the deportation of the offender and the offender’s family – perhaps to Gaza. Having said that, a long-term solution to Gaza is also needed. Eradicating Hamas and reconstructing Gaza under the auspices of an international mandate is one option. Or we could apply Professor Sherman’s solution to Gaza and bypass Hamas altogether by offering generous relocation grants to the families of Gaza. Israel could then annex the territory and permanently secure its southwestern border.

Something needs to done – and now is the time to do it. Why wait? Enough Jewish blood has been spilled because of Palestinianism. Creating irreversible facts on the ground would send a message to the Arab world that Israel is a permanent fixture on the world’s landscape. If Netanyahu wants to go down in history as the man who solved the Israeli-Arab conflict, he should listen to Professor Martin Sherman and explore the humanitarian transfer option. It may be the only resolution to a conflict that has endured for nearly a hundred years.

Trump 'neutral' on Israeli-Palestinian conflict

Last survivor of Nazi death camp Treblinka dies in Israel

Samuel Willenberg, the last survivor of Treblinka, the Nazi death camp where 875,000 people were systematically murdered, has died in Israel at the age of 93.

Only 67 people are known to have survived the camp, fleeing in a revolt shortly before it was destroyed.

Treblinka holds a notorious place in history as perhaps the most vivid example of the "Final Solution," the Nazi plan to exterminate Europe's Jews. Unlike at other camps, where some Jews were assigned to forced labor before being killed, nearly all Jews brought to Treblinka were immediately gassed to death.

Only a select few -- mostly young, strong men like Willenberg, who was 20 at the time-- were spared from immediate death and assigned to maintenance work instead.

On Aug. 2, 1943, a group of Jews stole some weapons, set fire to the camp and headed to the woods. Hundreds fled, but most were shot and killed by Nazi troops in the surrounding mine fields or captured by Polish villagers who returned them to Treblinka.

"The world cannot forget Treblinka," Willenberg told The Associated Press in a 2010 interview.

He described how he was shot in the leg as he climbed over bodies piled at the barbed wire fence and catapulted over. He kept running, ignoring dead friends in his path. He said his blue eyes and "non-Jewish" look allowed him to survive in the countryside before arriving in Warsaw and joining the Polish underground.

After the war Willenberg moved to Israel and became a surveyor for the Housing Ministry. Later in life, he took up sculpting to describe his experiences. His bronze statues depicted Jews standing on a train platform, a father removing his son's shoes before entering the gas chambers, a young girl having her head shaved, and prisoners removing bodies.

"I live two lives, one is here and now and the other is what happened there," Willenberg said. "It never leaves me. It stays in my head. It goes with me always."

His two sisters were killed at Treblinka. He described his survival as "chance, sheer chance."

The Nazis and their collaborators killed about 6 million Jews during the Holocaust. The death toll at Treblinka was second only to Auschwitz -- a prison camp where more than a million people died in gas chambers or from starvation, disease and forced labor.

His daughter said he died on Friday. He is survived by a daughter and grandchildren.

Dutch try and fail to stop export of dogs to Israel

The government in the Netherlands attempted to ban the export of dogs to Israel, claiming that the IDF uses them as "weapons," but was unable to find a legal means to do so.

EU Observer reports that Minister for Foreign Trade Lilianne Ploumen investigated the possibility through the European Commission and other supervisory organizations.

EU countries can only restrict exports in certain cases, and such cases are typically decided by the EU as a whole. Ploumen had suggested to the European Commission that service dogs could fall under the dual-use regulation, which deal with objects that have both civilian and military uses. This is the same classification under which Gazans are sometimes prevented from importing cement and other building materials.

The Commission responded that the dogs do not qualify because they always have civilian uses, even when serving in the military.

Plouman also tried to use the Working Party on Conventional Arms Export, a European forum focusing on the export of weapons to non-EU countries, to advance her cause, but her proposal was voted down.

The Dutch controversy over the IDF's use of dogs has been growing since last October, when the NRC Handelsblad claimed that the IDF uses dogs from Holland, some of whom have bitten Palestinians.

Left, Right unite: Paris council condemns anti-Israel boycotts

Paris city council has adopted two resolutions condemning boycotts of the state of Israel, in the latest blow to the anti-Israel boycott movement in Europe.

The two non-binding resolutions were particularly remarkable given the bipartisan nature of the initiatives: one was tabled by the left-wing Socialist-led coalition of Mayor Anne Hidalgo, while the other was spearheaded by right-wing City Council members.

According to a translation provided by JTA, one of the bill stipulates that it "opposes publicly all attempts to isolate Israel from the collective of nations."

The right-wing initiative was reportedly triggered after anti-Israel activists from the so-called BDS movement - which advocates international boycotts and sanctions against Israel - attempted to prevent an Israeli cultural event from taking place in Paris last year.

The blow to BDS comes on the same week as the United Kingdom is set to adopt measures banning public institutions in England from endorsing boycotts against Israel.

De NIPT-test : Terug naar Nazi-Duitsland

De inferieuren mochten niet geboren worden, en werden geëuthanaseerd!

This image originates from a film produced by the Reich Propaganda Ministry. It is captioned: "A moral and religious conception of life demands the prevention of hereditarily ill offspring." Nazi propaganda aimed to create public support for the compulsory sterilization effort.

This image originates from a film produced by the Reich Propaganda Ministry. It shows patients in an unidentified asylum. Their existence is described as "life without hope." The Nazis sought, through propaganda, to develop public sympathy for the Euthanasia Program.

Als kinderen met het syndroom van down niet meer geboren mogen worden, dan is er voor dit land geen hoop meer.

Dit ontaard geslacht (onze samenleving, onze 'beschaafde cultuur) is met deze NIPT-test net zo barbaars bezig als de Nazi's van Hitler's Duitsland. Gehadicapten, mensen met down-syndroom, geestelijk gehandicapten, etc. waren - 
volgens de Nazi-propaganda - inferieur en een 'last' voor de samenleving, . Veel vrouwen werden gedwongen gesteriliseerd om kans op een gehandicapt kind te voorkomen. Nu is er een wetenschappelijk nieuw hoogstandje: De NIPT-test! Zelfde barbarij, maar dan in een modern jasje! Voor God spelen, terwijl voor God al het leven heilig is!

Al die (in de moederschoot) afgeslachte mensjes huilend van blijdschap voor de troon van Jezus, dat geeft nog hoop.

UK to advance legislation to block Israel boycotts and prosecute BDS

Good News!

The British government is reportedly set to advance legislation that would block all public institutions in the United Kingdom from participating in a boycott against Israel. Top British minister said set to announce intiative to allow government to prosecute BDS-supporting public institutions

According to the International Business Times, Cabinet Officer Minister Matthew Hancock will announce the new proposed regulations this week during a trip to Israel. The bill will allow the government to prosecute universities, local government, councils, and student unions that back the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

The report did not mention whether the proposal distinguishes between Israel and the settlements.

“This move is very welcome,” said MP Eric Pickles, the head of Conservative Friends of Israel. “The attempt by the irresponsible left to demonize Israel is bad for British business, bad for the local taxpayer, and deeply damaging to community relations. It encourages anti-Semitism and strives to make a municipal foreign policy contrary to the interests of the UK.”

Last year, the European Union, over strenuous Israeli objections, adopted a policy requiring the labeling of goods manufactured in Israeli settlements in the West Bank, a practice that would facilitate the targeting of settlement businesses.

Police shot and killed a man who stormed a restaurant in Ohio wielding a machete and randomly attacking people as they sat unsuspectingly at their dinner tables, authorities said.

Israelis Skeptical of Peace Process, and Support Annexation of Judea and Samaria, the so-called “West Bank.”

Most Israelis want genuine and productive peace talks, but skepticism over the diplomatic process with the current Palestinian leadership has resulted in growing support for simply annexing Judea and Samaria, the so-called “West Bank.”

That according to the results of Israel’s monthly “Peace Index” survey published last Tuesday.

Asked if they are in favor of a renewal of peace talks between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, nearly 62 percent of all Israelis answered in the affirmative.

At the same time, nearly 68 percent believed such talks would fail to reach a solution in the short term, and only 29 percent felt peace process in its current incarnation would ever be successful.

The poll further revealed that a 45.3 percent plurality of Israelis now support annexing Judea and Samaria, thus ending the “dream” of a Palestinian state, while 44.8 percent oppose such a move.

Donatie voor het 87-jarige joodse slachtoffer van racistische roofoverval


Diana Blog. Zo heet de 87-jarige joodse dame die samen met haar man het slachtoffer werd van een racistisch gemotiveerde roofoverval door twee Marokkaanse jongens. Tijdens de overval, die in augustus 2015 plaatsvond aan Heemstedestraat te Amsterdam, werd het echtpaar verschrikkelijk toegetakeld. Zowel Diana als haar man Samuel kunnen niet meer lopen en zitten sindsdien in een rolstoel. Samuel is na de mishandeling zelfs volledig blind geraakt.

De overvallers stalen al Diana's kleding. Naar eigen zeggen heeft ze niet eens een jas en schoenen meer om te dragen. Maar ook stalen ze 15.000 euro spaargeld uit de kluis, dat het echtpaar achter de hand hield voor de kosten van o.a. hun eigen begrafenis. Nu zegt Diana: "Ik heb helemaal niets meer, geen rooie cent, ik ben een arme schlemiel..."

Diana overleefde Auschwitz en werd in 2015 opnieuw slachtoffer van antisemitisme. We mogen haar, en haar man, niet in de kou laten staan. Doneer alstublieft ruimhartig, opdat de dit echtpaar hun laatste jaren nog in enige waardigheid kan leven.

Israëlische nederzettingen en internationaal recht

Een veel te laat uitgebrachte persverklaring van het Israëlische ministerie van Buitenlandse Zaken maakte op 30 november een einde aan de verwarring rond trefwoorden als ‘bezetting’, ‘kolonialisme’, en andere termen die bedoeld zijn om Israël in diskrediet te brengen.

De bewering dat de Joodse aanwezigheid op de Westelijke Jordaanoever (Judea en Samaria) een modern verschijnsel is, staat lijnrecht tegenover het feit dat in deze gebieden duizenden jaren lang Joden hebben gewoond. In 1922, toen Palestina onder Brits mandaat kwam te staan, was het dan ook volkomen normaal dat er Joden in dit gebied woonden. De Volkerenbond stemde daarom ook in met de oprichting van een Joodse staat in het land dat alle Joden de eeuwen door als hun vaderland beschouwden.

Dat er ooit een Palestijnse natie heeft bestaan, is een verzinsel. Bovendien is het een historisch feit, dat veel van de omstreden Israëlische nederzettingen van dit moment, gebouwd zijn op plaatsen waar ooit Joodse gemeenschappen hebben gewoond.

De enige regering die het vestigen van Joodse nederzettingen in deze gebieden verbood, was de Jordaanse bezettingsmacht, die slechts negentien jaar lang (van 1948 tot 1967) over deze gebieden regeerde, en die het verkopen van land aan Joden een ‘financiële misdaad’ noemde.

Het bouwen van Joodse nederzettingen op de Westelijke Jordaanoever wordt door pro-Palestijnse activisten en politici bestempeld als kolonialisme. Maar dit is historisch onjuist en ingegeven door een sterke vooringenomenheid ten opzichte van Israël. De geschiedenis toont aan dat Jeruzalem en de Westelijke Jordaanoever nog nooit een soevereine Palestijnse of Arabische staat is geweest.

Ten aanzien van mensenrechten en gewapende conflicten geldt de regel uit de Geneefse Conventie, dat het aan ‘een staat die een andere staat bezet, is verboden om de eigen burgerbevolking naar die bezette gebieden te deporteren’ (Afdeling III, Artikel 49, 4e Geneefse Conventie).

Met het oog op het Palestijns-Israëlische conflict heeft het Internationale Rode Kruis de volgende kanttekening bij de Geneefse Conventie geplaatst: ‘In het geval van de Joden die vrijwillig huizen en gemeenten in hun oude vaderland bouwen, naast de bestaande Palestijnse gemeenten, geldt Artikel 49 van de 4e Geneefse Conventie niet.’

Virtual tour of Sobibor extermination camp

Visitors may Vught with special glasses henceforth also take a look at the 1500 kilometers away former Nazi death camp Sobibor.

Minister Martin van Rijn (VWS) announced Saturday the use of 3D glasses via the computer gives an idea how the Sobibor extermination camp in Poland located there in 1943 just about looked like. Visitors may Vught camp from Tuesday pay a virtual visit to Sobibor.

In Sobibor extermination camp, an estimated 34 000 from the Netherlands Jews murdered in the gas chambers. Because Nazis tried to erase all traces of the camp is not certain how it has looked exactly. When the computer rebuild of the former camp grounds are discussed including Sobibor Foundation, the Jewish Historical Museum, Auschwitz Committee, Holocaust survivor Jules Schelvis and Ivar Schute, archaeologist at Sobibor.

Israeli Government approves egalitarian prayer section at Western Wall

Following a long and intense year-long debate, the cabinet voted in favor of establishing a section of the Western Wall for mixed prayers.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu addressed the issue at the beginning of the Cabinet meeting on Sunday, noting that, "last year at my behest, [there was work] to try and reach a solution on the question of the Women of the Wall."

"Today, in your last meeting here, we will submit the summary of your work on the issue, i.e. a compromise on this delicate issue in a place that is supposed to unite the Jewish People."

"While I know that this is a delicate issue, I think that this is a fair and creative solution," Netanyahu noted. "The most complex problems usually require such solutions and I congratulate you on what you have submitted for a decision by the Cabinet.”

According to the proposed agreement, a new prayer area will be set up along the wall south of where the current prayer area is and will be deemed the Israel congregation area near Robinson’s arch. While the Mughrabi bridge will still separate the areas of the main Western Wall plaza from the Robinson’s arch area, a new entrance will be developed that will provide entry to all three locations.

Haredi ministers voted against the plan, but the parties did not torpedo the proposal outright nor create a coalition crisis over the issue, as even sources in the haredi parties agreed that this plan was the least of all evils.
