Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked admitted that she had not wanted to accept the Justice Ministry over fears that a legal establishment upset at the vast changes she would make would and trump up criminal allegations...
Shaked's popularity has been steadily rising since becoming Justice Minister in 2015 due to a rash of right-wing legislation she has promoted and her successful effort to install conservative justices in the Supreme Court. (Anti-Zionist, self-hating leftist cronies of the Legal Establishment of Israel has been blackmailing right-wing politicians for quite a while! They have been 'investigating' Netanyahu and his wife; as well as Sharon and his son and many other Zionist activists, using the legal system as a tool of punishment - financial, moral and psychological!!)

This is a common pattern - Hamas attacks Israel; IDF retaliates 'responsibly'; Hamas asks for a ceasefire, which it has no intention to comply with; Israel obliges! It is time to change the political leadership in Israel and remove gutless, self-centered wimps - who have no interest to end the siege of terror and to defeat enemies!
US President Donald Trump on Thursday suggested that Israel would face major regional difficulties in the Middle East if it were not for the stabilizing presence of Saudi Arabia. “Israel would be in big trouble without Saudi Arabia,” Trump told reporters. US President Donald Trump said he would keep his alliance with Saudi Arabia to 'ensure the interests of Israel,' but a new report reveals that Israel and the Jewish people are still demonized in the monarchy's official textbooks. (Saudis have been behind most of the anti-Israel endeavours and propaganda! At the moment they need Israel to do a 'dirty job' for them in dealing with Iran. What will happen after Israel does it?)
A PA official in charge of foreign affairs, Riyad al-Maliki, called on the world to help resolve the Israel-Palestinian Arab issue by backing a two-state solution. "The Palestinians are still waiting for the international community to try to resolve the Palestinian problem that has been created by the international community" with the foundation of Israel in 1948, he charged. (The idea of a two-state solution was dead on its inception! To avoid so-called apartheid state Israel must be ready and willing to implement the Sinai Option!)
Greece, Italy, and Cyprus have reached an agreement with Israel to lay a pipeline connecting the Jewish state’s gas reserves to the three countries, in a major project estimated at costing over $7 billion that will supply gas from the eastern Mediterranean to Europe, as the continent seeks to diversify its energy supply.
The High Court of Justice has rejected a petition by 104 Palestinian residents of an East Jerusalem neighborhood who have been ordered to evacuate homes that are owned by a right-wing group that settles Jews in Arab areas of the city. (For quite a while, the Israeli judiciary has been making mainly anti-Zionist rulings - Let hope it is a real and lasting change!)
Thirty-two residents of East Jerusalem who carry Israeli blue identity cards were arrested on suspicion that they had enlisted and served in the Palestinian Authority security forces. Some of the suspects served illegally in the PA security apparatus, while receiving allowances from the State of Israel.
The PA has received $7 million in aid for projects in eastern Jerusalem and in Area C in Judea and Samaria, which is under Israeli security and civilian control. At the same time, while blaming Israel for the PA’s financial woes, $4.5 million a month was paid to jailed terrorists and another $6.5 million to their families.
The president of Chad, Idriss Deby, became the first leader of his country to pay an official visit to Israel - to enlist Israel’s participation in the fierce wars against Al Qaeda and ISIS Chad, a Muslim-majority country in central Africa, broke off relations with Israel in 1972. Deby said that while he's eager to renew "very strong" diplomatic ties with Israel, such a detente does "not obscure the principle on the Palestinian question." (Another anti-Israel user is seeking Jewish help!)
A member of a UN Human Rights Council commission, which is investigating the events of recent months on the Israel-Gaza border, asked two Israelis living near the strip, "If that is the situation, why do you continue living there?"
Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), has unveiled a new and enhanced configuration of its Drone Guard system which detects, identifies and disrupts the operation of large and small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAS).
(It is nice, Jewish ingenuity is amazing, but wouldn't it be more effective, on a long run, to remove the enemy population from the Jewish land - Gaza? Recently, Israel had another opportunity to do this!)
The US Department of Justice will not allow former Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard to serve the remainder of his parole probation in Israel. Pollard was arrested in 1985, convicted and then sentenced in 1987 to life in prison on a single count of passing classified information to an ally, Israel (which the US military should share but withheld from its ally). He was released on “mandatory parole” in 2015. However, Pollard is still living with severe, unprecedented restrictions! (Even Soviet spies, in the middle of the Cold war, were not treated with such contempt!)
A Palestinian Authority court in Qalqilya sentenced two Palestinians convicted of selling land to Israeli Jews to 15 years of hard labor. Separately, a Palestinian who died in a car accident was barred from burial in Jerusalem over allegations he sold property to Jews. According to the PA law, possible punishments for trying to sell or selling land to Israeli Jews include different degrees of hard labor and execution.
Israel will not sign a nonbinding, first-of-its-kind migration pact aimed at managing migration and making it more orderly and safer. A number of the Central European and Eastern European countries that have pulled out have governments that ran on planks of limiting migration, and have been at odds with Brussels over the EU’s immigration policies. (Israel joined some Western countries stood up to international 'Political Correctness', which facilitates Islamic invasion and illegal Migration!)
Amid speculation that US President Donald Trump is looking to roll out his administration’s peace plan for Israelis and Palestinians in February, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked said that she would counsel the American leader that any such proposal was “a waste of time.” “I think that the gap between the Palestinians and the Israelis is much too big to be bridged,” she said. (Isn't that Obvious? Just recently, Hamas fired 460 rockets at Israel in one day - their aim is killing Jews and destruction of Israel, not peace!)
Days after agreeing to a ceasefire, the Palestinians launched homemade drones carrying explosives over into Israeli border communities. One came down near a village in Sedot Hanegev council, another was found with a bottle bomb attached.
Judges at the International Criminal Court have ordered the court’s chief prosecutor to reopen for the third time her probe into the May 2010 flotilla incident. An Israeli official fumes over court’s repeated ‘exploitation for political ends’!
Quote of the Week:
''Bottom line, Jews, wake up. Anti-Semitism is not an abnormality and it is not “back”, it just was on the backburner for a while. Anti-Semitism was always part of Jewish life, we just got spoiled living in a time period that it hid for a while. So, get with the program, internalize this new reality, stop the divisiveness, unify and be proud Jews and proud of our Jewish State of Israel!'' – a FaceBook posting

Education Minister Naftali Bennett and Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked's decision to stay in government despite threatening to leave the coalition if leader Bennett doesn't receive the defense portfolio...
Bennett folded like a cheap suitcase when he decided to stay in government despite his threats... If you give an ultimatum, you have to commit to it; otherwise, people might say you're all bark and no bite...
There is the growing sense among the Israeli public that there is no alternative to Netanyahu.
This feeling is strong not only among right-wing voters, but also among members of the center and the left. The latter certainly want to see the prime minister go. They despise him and wish for his demise. But when asked who they want to see in his place, they are speechless.
...in order to bring down a prime minister, resistance is not enough. We need to want an alternative; otherwise we will choose parties that will only weaken the prime minister, not replace him.
Netanyahu's main strength is not his likability - only a few sense it - but the belief that he is invincible. As long as this goes on, he will keep on winning.
