Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made the following remarks at the end of the Security Cabinet meeting this evening :
"We are in the midst of a campaign of incitement and terrorism directed against the State of Israel and its citizens. This campaign has continued since the foundation of the state and even before then. We have defeated terrorism until today and we will defeat it this time as well.
I convened the Security Cabinet a short while ago and updated it on the decisions we made following consultations with security elements – with the IDF, the ISA and the Israel Police. These steps include increasing forces on the ground throughout the country in order to boost your security, citizens of Israel; the demolition of terrorists' homes;, a strong hard and more severe punishment of those who throw stones, bottles, fireworks and firebombs; fines for the parents of children and young people who throw stones; the outlawing of those elements that are stirring up unrest in Jerusalem; and other measures. ...
Prof Daniel Wagner, recipient of the 2014 Christoffel Plantin Prize
Professor Daniel Wagner of the Weizmann Institute of Science was awarded the 2014 Christoffel Plantin Prize at a ceremony that took place in Antwerp on October 20th, in the presence of the Governor of the Province of Antwerp, the ambassador of Israel in Belgium and the ambassador of Belgium in Israel. Each year, this prestigious prize is bestowed upon a Belgian citizen who resides outside Belgium and who has made a significant contribution in his or her field of study. Professor Wagner, born in Israel of Belgian parents, is a prominent scientific leader in materials science, and a world-renowned specialist in the field of nanocomposites.
Special bonds unite the Weizmann Institute with Belgium: Dr. Chaïm Weizmann, a scientist and first President of the State of Israel, and his spouse were close friends with Queen Elisabeth who visited them several times in their residence in Rehovot, now situated inside the campus of the Institute. Moreover, as noted by Governor Cathy Berx during the ceremony, the awarding of the prize to an Israeli citizen highlights the strong links between the city of Antwerp and Israel. Many members of the Belgian community now living in Israel came from Antwerp and Antwerp is a twin city of Haifa. ...
"What Would You Do?" - Deutsche Welle interviews Amos Oz
Amos Oz: I would like to begin the interview in a very unusual way: by presenting one or two questions to your readers and listeners. May I do that?
Question 1: What would you do if your neighbor across the street sits down on the balcony, puts his little boy on his lap and starts shooting machine gun fire into your nursery?
Question 2: What would you do if your neighbor across the street digs a tunnel from his nursery to your nursery in order to blow up your home or in order to kidnap your family?
I am afraid that there can be no way in the world to avoid civilian casualties among the Palestinians as long as the neighbor puts his child on the lap while shooting into your nursery. ...
Krijgen we wereldwijd 1 miljoen handtekeningen bij elkaar als steunbetuiging voor de Balfour Verklaring uit 1917?
Zondag 2 november markeert de 97e verjaardag van de Balfour Declaration. Een document dat velen beschouwen als de eerste stap in de vorming van een tastbare staat voor het Joodse volk toen Lord Balfour het standpunt proclameerde van "Zijne Majesteit´s regering" betreffende de vorming van een nationaal tehuis in Palestina ten behoeve van het Joodse volk. Niet alleen vertegenwoordigde dit de eerste politieke erkenning van het joods nationalisme door een wereldmacht, maar was het ook een weerspiegeling van de filosofische, praktische en spirituele betekenis achter de historische band van het Joodse volk met haar oude vaderland.
Eenmaal gevierd in Joodse gemeenschappen wereldwijd voor meer dan een decennium, bracht de jaarlijkse viering van Balfour Day hoop voor degenen die ervan droomden ooit op een dag een eigen thuisland te krijgen. Een thuisland waarin ze konden leven vrij van vervolging en van haat als Joden in hun eigen huis. ...
In het vorig jaar geopende nieuw Joods Museum in de Poolse hoofdstad Warschau werd gisteren de tentoonstelling 'A Thousand-Year History of Polish Jews' plechtig geopend in aanwezigheid van de Poolse President Bronislaw Komorowski en Israëlische President Reuven Rivlin.
JPost: "Rivlin in Warsaw: Saga of the Jews did not begin in Poland nor did it end in Auschwitz"
WARSAW – Calling it "not a Holocaust museum, but a museum of life," President Reuven Rivlin attended the opening of the Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw on Tuesday alongside Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski.
Rivlin described Poland as the place that nurtured the creative soul of the Jewish people.
"To our great sorrow, it is also the largest graveyard of the Jewish people," he said. ...
"Does Kerry Think that 18 Million Muslim Refugees Are Irrelevant to ISIS?" door David P. Goldman (alias Spengler)
There are now nearly 18 million refugees and internally displaced persons in seven Muslim countries (Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Pakistan, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen), up from slightly over 7 million in 2011, according to the UN. That doesn't count more than 2.5 million Afghani refugees from the continuing war in their country. Much of the population of Syria has left their homes, including 3 million who have left the country due to the civil war and an additional 8 million internally displaced.
That is cause for desperation: unprecedented numbers of people have been torn from traditional society and driven from their homes, many with little but the clothes on their backs. There are millions of young men in the Muslim world sitting in refugee camps with nothing to do, nowhere to go back to, and nothing to look forward to. And there are tens of millions more watching their misery with outrage. Never has an extremist movement had so many frustrated and footloose young men in its prospective recruitment pool.
Israel has nothing whatever to do with any of this suffering. ...
