Palestinian Woman Attempts Car-Ramming Terror Attack at Israeli Bus Stop


A female Palestinian attempted to ram a car into security forces at a tense junction in the occupied West Bank on Wednesday and was shot and wounded, Israel’s military said.

No injuries were reported on the Israeli side following the incident at the Gush Etzion Junction south of Jerusalem. The Palestinian’s condition was not yet clear, nor were details on her identity or age.

A wave of violence that broke out in October 2015 has killed 255 Palestinians, 40 Israelis, two Americans, one Jordanian, an Eritrean and a Sudanese national, according to an AFP count.

Most of the Palestinians who lost their lives were carrying out knife, gun or car-ramming attacks, according to the Israeli authorities.

Others were killed during protests, in clashes or Israeli air raids on Gaza.

Violence has greatly subsided in recent months, despite sporadic attacks. afp

Israel OKs more settler homes ahead of Trump talks


Israel approved hundreds of new settler homes in east Jerusalem Sunday, hours before Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was to speak to US President Donald Trump for the first time since his inauguration.

But a potentially explosive plan to annex a large West Bank Jewish settlement near Jerusalem unilaterally was shelved until after Netanyahu and Trump meet face-to-face.

“This evening there will be a telephone conversation between President Trump and myself,” Netanyahu told a cabinet meeting on Sunday.

“There are many issues between us, including the Israeli-Palestinian issue, the situation in Syria and the Iranian threat.”

The White House confirmed that such a call was scheduled, but did not give further details.

Trump has pledged strong support for Israel and vowed during his campaign to recognise Jerusalem as the country’s capital despite the city’s contested status.

Israeli right-wing politicians have welcomed his election, with hardliners who oppose a Palestinian state hoping it will allow them to move forward with their long-held goal of annexing most of the West Bank.

The United States is Israel’s most important ally, providing it with more than $3 billion per year in defence aid, but former president Barack Obama grew frustrated with Israeli settlement building.

He declined to veto a December 23 UN Security Council resolution condemning settlements. Trump had called for the resolution to be vetoed.

- ‘We can finally build’ -

In an initial move following Trump’s inauguration, Israeli officials on Sunday approved building permits for 566 settler homes in annexed east Jerusalem.

“The rules of the game have changed with Donald Trump’s arrival as president,” Jerusalem Deputy Mayor Meir Turjeman told AFP.

“We no longer have our hands tied as in the time of Barack Obama. Now we can finally build.”

The Palestinian presidency condemned the move, calling it a violation of the UN resolution.

A draft bill to annex the Maale Adumim settlement in the occupied West Bank had been on the agenda for approval by a ministerial committee legislation on Sunday.

Such a move could badly damage prospects for a two-state solution.

But the inner circle of senior ministers known as the security cabinet blocked it for the time being, a member said.

“What was decided was to wait for the meeting which will certainly take place within a few weeks,” Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz told Israeli public radio.

“Then we shall have another (ministerial) debate on the matter,” he said.

Annexing Maale Adumim unilaterally would set off alarm bells globally, with many warning that it would be another step towards dividing the occupied West Bank between north and south, making a contiguous Palestinian state difficult to achieve.

But for some Israeli ministers who oppose a Palestinian state, that is precisely the point.

“We have to tell the American administration what we want and not wait for orders from the administration,” Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked told Israel’s army radio.

- ‘Block east Jerusalem’ -

Maale Adumim, in a strategic location east of Jerusalem, has some 37,000 residents.

Some peace proposals have envisioned it becoming part of Israel in land swaps agreed with the Palestinians, but not unilaterally.

It was unclear whether the annexation proposal would apply to another key area called E1, located between the settlement and east Jerusalem.

The Palestinians see east Jerusalem as the capital of their future state, while Israel views the entire city as its capital.

Settlements watchdog Ir Amim said “the annexation of Maale Adumim and E1 will block east Jerusalem on its eastern side, swallow up its last development reserves and deepen the detachment from the West Bank.

“Given Maale Adumim’s critical location in the heart of the West Bank, the international community has for years been following with special concern all developments in this area, seen as a touchstone for the viability of a two-state solution.”

Israel occupied the West Bank and east Jerusalem in 1967, and later annexed east Jerusalem in a move never recognised by the international community.

Settlements in both the West Bank and east Jerusalem are viewed as illegal under international law.

Some 400,000 Israeli settlers live in the West Bank, with another 200,000 in east Jerusalem. In comparison, around 2.9 million Palestinians live in the West Bank and east Jerusalem. afp

Arrests after threats over Israeli soldier’s conviction


Israeli police arrested two people Thursday after death threats emerged online against a judge over the manslaughter conviction of a soldier who shot dead a wounded Palestinian assailant.

Israel’s military has also assigned bodyguards to the three judges who found the 20-year-old French-Israeli soldier guilty on Wednesday, reports said.

Sgt. Elor Azaria was convicted after a trial in a military court that began in May and which deeply divided the country.

It has led to harsh criticism of the verdict by far-right activists, while right-wing politicians — including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu — have called for the soldier to be pardoned.

Police said they had arrested two people from Jerusalem and the city of Kiryat Gat for incitement to violence online.

According to Israeli news site Ynet, the posts by a 54-year-old man and 22-year-old woman included death threats against the head of the three-judge panel in the case, Colonel Maya Heller.

“Police units are continuing to monitor social media and respond to threats and incitement to violence connected to the Azaria court decision,” a statement said.

Military and justice ministry officials declined to comment on the increased security for Heller as well as the two other judges, Colonel Carmel Wahabi and Lieutenant Colonel Yaron Sitbon.

Military prosecutor Lieutenant Colonel Nadav Weissman was also reportedly given extra protection.

In a sign of the tensions surrounding the case, dozens of protesters scuffled with police Wednesday as they gathered outside Israel’s military headquarters in Tel Aviv, where the verdict was announced.

Military chief of staff Gadi Eisenkot was reportedly targeted with threats, with some supporters of the soldier suggesting he would join Rabin — a reference to the 1995 assassination of former prime minister Yitzhak Rabin by a Jewish extremist.

The case burst into public view when a video of the March 24 shooting in Hebron in the occupied West Bank emerged and spread widely online.

The video showed Abdul Fatah al-Sharif, 21, lying on the ground, shot along with another man after stabbing and moderately wounding a soldier minutes earlier, according to the army.

Azaria then shoots him again in the head without any apparent provocation.

Heller spent more than two and a half hours reading out the decision on Wednesday, sharply criticising the arguments of Azaria’s lawyers.

The judges ruled there was no reason for Azaria to open fire since the Palestinian was posing no threat. He faces up to 20 years in prison and will be sentenced at a later date.

A poll by pro-Netanyahu newspaper Israel Hayom found that around 70 percent of Israelis favour a pardon for Azaria. afp

Israel revives settlement plans after Trump win


Jerusalem (AFP) – Israel revived plans on Wednesday to build 500 new homes for Jewish settlers in Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem, an ominous sign for Palestinians wary of a Donald Trump presidency, an NGO said.

“The political significance of this action is that it is the first plan to be promoted since the US elections,” Betty Herschman from the Ir Amim NGO said.

The plan for 500 housing units in Ramat Shlomo, an ultra-Orthodox Jewish neighbourhood in east Jerusalem of around 20,000, had been on hold since 2014, Ir Amim said.

The Jerusalem municipality downplayed the significance of the new housing units, saying the plans were “not new and were approved years ago”.

Nevertheless, the announcement is likely to be interpreted by some as a first step in Israel expanding its settlements in the wake of Trump’s upset election victory.

Israeli right-wingers hailed his triumph as ushering in an administration far less critical of settlement expansion than that of outgoing President Barack Obama’s.

The president-elect’s adviser on Israel, David Friedman, told AFP last month that he does not believe Trump sees Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank as illegal.

One Israeli minister said Trump’s win meant “the era of a Palestinian state is over” while Meir Turjeman, chairman of the Jerusalem municipality planning committee, told public radio earlier in November that it meant suspended permits in east Jerusalem would be given the green light.

He said the municipality intended to authorise thousands of housing units that had been frozen.

- UN envoy warning -

The international community considers all settlements illegal and sees them as one of the largest obstacles to peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

UN envoy Nickolay Mladenov told the Security Council on Wednesday that Israel’s latest plan for new settlement homes in east Jerusalem were part of “increasingly worrying” developments and urged Israel to halt the construction.

“The situation on the ground is changing steadily, dangerously, as proponents of Israeli settlement expansion feel emboldened, internal divisions among Palestinians flare up, and the prospect of a future Palestinian state comes under threat like never before,” Mladenov said.

Ahead of the Ramat Shlomo decision France said the planned constructions would be “illegal”.

“The unabated continuation of the settlement policy only serves to increase tensions on the ground and undermines the prospects for achieving a just and lasting peace,” its foreign ministry said Tuesday.

More than 200,000 Israelis now live in east Jerusalem, as part of a wider community of around 600,000 settlers in all the occupied Palestinian territories.

The municipality did not respond Wednesday to the suggestion that the construction plans were related to events in the US.

- Obama’s final days -

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, whose government is considered the most right-wing in Israeli history, has so far been cautious in approving settlements.

While many on the Israeli right are looking forward to Trump’s inauguration in January, they are also wary of what Obama may do in his final days in office.

Obama’s administration has expressed mounting anger over Israeli settlement policy and speculation has grown that he could launch a final initiative before leaving.

The UN Security Council is set to debate proposals for a draft resolution calling for a halt to settlement expansion in the Palestinian territories, with speculation Obama could break with recent US practice and support — or at least not veto — such a resolution before his term expires on January 20.

Netanyahu last month expressed concern over any potential attempt but Israeli defence minister Avigdor Lieberman on Wednesday seemed less concerned.

Asked if he expected any surprises from Obama before his term ends, Lieberman said: “I don’t think so.”

“It is clear we are in a transition period, it is clear today — not only in Israel but in the world — we are waiting for new policies, a new administration.”

Obama has had frosty personal relations with Netanyahu throughout his two-term presidency. afp

Israel Names First Ambassador to Turkey Since 2010


Israel nominated a new ambassador to Turkey Tuesday, its first since the two countries normalised ties after the 2010 crisis triggered by Israel’s storming of a Gaza-bound ship.

Eitan Naeh was formally selected by a government committee, said foreign ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon.

 He said the timeline for him being confirmed was not yet determined.

Naeh, the current deputy head of mission at the Israeli embassy in London, will become his country’s first ambassador to Turkey since Israeli commandos raided a Gaza-bound ship of activists in 2010.

The raid killed 10 Turks and prompted Ankara to expel the Israeli ambassador.

The two sides finally agreed in June to end the bitter six-year rift after long-running secret talks in third countries with Israel offering $20 million in compensation, an apology over the raid and permission for Turkish aid to reach Gaza.

The normalisation agreement had been urged by the United States, which is keen to see its NATO ally, overwhelmingly Muslim Turkey, resume its previously tight relationship with Israel. afp

Israel PM warns over Iran influence in Russia meeting


Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held talks on Thursday with his Russian counterpart Dmitry Medvedev, with the Israeli leader stressing he hoped to limit his arch-foe Iran’s influence in Syria.

The talks came two days after Donald Trump’s election as US president, though the meeting had long been planned.

Israel and Russia have held a series of talks in recent months to coordinate their actions in Syria, where Moscow has been conducting an air campaign in support of President Bashar al-Assad.

Iran is a key ally of Assad as well as Lebanese Shiite militia Hezbollah, also Israel’s enemy.

“We are determined to do two things: first, prevent Iran from achieving nuclear weapons, and second, to prevent Iran… from establishing itself militarily in Syria, on the ground, in the air or at sea,” Netanyahu said as he met Medvedev.

“We are also determined to prevent it from bringing about the establishment of Shiite militias, which it is organising, and of course, the arming of Hezbollah with dangerous weapons aimed at us.”

Netanyahu called Israel and Russia “partners in the war on radical Islamic terror” and noted that the two countries along with the United States and others “share the goal of eliminating” the Islamic State jihadist group.

Israel opposes Assad but has sought to avoid being dragged into the Syrian war.

It has however carried out strikes there to stop arms deliveries to Hezbollah, which fights alongside Assad’s forces.

Netanyahu admitted publicly for the first time in April that Israel had attacked dozens of convoys in Syria which were transporting weapons to Hezbollah.

Last year, Netanyahu and Russian President Vladimir Putin agreed to set up a “hotline” to avoid accidental clashes.

Medvedev is to meet Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas in the West Bank city of Jericho on Friday before departing. afp

Israel PM backs bill to limit noise from mosques


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday he backed a bill limiting the volume of calls to prayer from mosques, a proposal government watchdogs have called a threat to religious freedom.

Netanyahu, who spoke as a ministerial committee was to discuss the draft bill later in the day, said he would support such a move that some have labelled unnecessarily divisive.

Israeli media reported that the bill would stop the use of public address systems for calls to prayer.

“I cannot count the times — they are simply too numerous — that citizens have turned to me from all parts of Israeli society, from all religions, with complaints about the noise and suffering caused them by the excessive noise coming to them from the public address systems of houses of prayer,” Netanyahu said at the start of a cabinet meeting.

While the draft bill applies to all houses of worship, it is seen as specifically targeting mosques.

Israel’s population is roughly 17.5 percent Arab, most of them Muslim, and they accuse the Jewish majority of badly discriminating against them.

East Jerusalem is also mainly Palestinian and traditional calls to prayer by muezzins through PA systems can be heard in the city.

The Israel Democracy Institute, a non-partisan think tank, has spoken out against the proposal.

On Sunday, one of the watchdog’s officials accused Israel’s right-wing politicians of dangerously using the issue to gain political points under the guise of improving quality of life.

Nasreen Hadad Haj-Yahya wrote in Israeli newspaper Maariv that “the real aim” of the bill “is not to prevent noise, but rather to create noise that will hurt all of society and the efforts to establish a sane reality between Jews and Arabs.”

Netanyahu heads what is seen as the most right-wing government in Israeli history. afp

Israeli Jews Say Trump Better for Israel Policy, though Favor Clinton, Poll Says

JTA – Most Israeli Jews would cite Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump as a subsequent boss of a United States – even yet some-more of them consider Trump would be improved for a “Israeli government’s policy,” according to a check expelled on Wednesday.

When asked to select between a dual candidates, 43 percent of Israeli Jews cite Clinton as president, compared to 34 percent who wish Trump. But 38 percent contend Trump would be improved for Israel, compared to 33 percent who contend Clinton would be.

On both questions, a vast series of people don’t cite a candidate.

The Israel Democracy Institute consider tank and Tel Aviv University expelled a latest Peace Index monthly consult after polling 600 Israelis during a finish of August. The domain of blunder is 4.1 percent.

Some respondents support Clinton, America’s former initial lady and secretary of state, even yet they don’t consider a Democratic claimant “will be improved from a standpoint of a Israeli government’s policy,” as a consult puts it. Thirteen percent of a Jews who contend Trump, a Republican nominee, would be improved for Israel wish Clinton to be president. Only 2 percent of Jews who pronounced Clinton would be improved for Israel wish Trump to be president.

“There seem to be people who support Clinton even yet they consider she will put some-more vigour on Israel or be reduction easy for Israel to understanding with in terms of all a support we need from a United States,” Chanan Cohen, a researcher during a Israel Democracy Institute who helped lead a survey, told JTA.

Libertarian claimant Gary Johnson and a Green Party’s Jill Stein were not enclosed in a consult .

In April, Jewish opinion on a theme was scarcely reversed. The Peace Index that month found 40 percent suspicion Clinton would be improved for Israel’s seductiveness and 31 percent suspicion Trump would be.

Since a primary season, when Trump affianced to be a “neutral” attorney of Israeli-Palestinian peace, he and a Republican Party have attempted to boost their pro-Israel bona fides. On Monday, Republican Trump supporters non-stop their fifth debate bureau in Israel, the initial in a West Bank. They envision 85 percent of Americans vital in Israel, who they contend series 300,000, will opinion for a developer and existence TV star.

Still, Trump does not have a comparison of Israeli Jewish support. Even on a domestic right, usually 49 percent support him, with 23 percent preferring Clinton, according to a survey. The left (86 percent) and core (57 percent) have an “overwhelming preference” for Clinton, according to a Israel Democracy Institute.

“I approaching a worried electorate to support Trump in bigger numbers, though we can see reduction than half did,” pronounced Cohen. “I know that in a United States, a right has concerns about Trump’s personality, and we can see this also on a Israel right.”

Among Israeli Arabs, who make adult about 20 percent of Israel’s population, 58 percent cite a Democratic hopeful and 11 percent a Republican.

In another check expelled on Wednesday, a CNN/ORC consult of expected American electorate showed Trump with a 45-43 percent advantage over Clinton.
