Protecting the Israeli Border

Multiple drones reportedly belonging to the Israeli Air Force (IAF) carried out a new series of airstrikes against Iranian-backed militias in the area of Deir Ez-Zur in eastern Syria over the weekend.

The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that a total of 8 airstrikes targeted the Afghan Liwa Fatemiyoun militia, which was transferred to Syria on orders of the late Qassem Soleimani.

The attack, which killed 12 Afghan militia members took place just before midnight on Sunday evening and destroyed recent fortifications and Iranian weapon deliveries to the bases of Liwa Fatemiyoun in the Deir Ez-Zur Province.

Tens of thousands of Iranian-linked militiamen have been integrated into the Syrian army. Many of them are now stationed near the Israeli border and disguise themselves as Syrian soldiers using Syrian army vehicles in an attempt to avoid Israeli strikes.

The Signs Are All There: “Jerusalem Will Be Divided!”

Due to reports of the US government’s intentions and Israeli agreement on the Trump plan, the Sovereignty movement launched a widespread billboard campaign today warning of the dangers of the Palestinian state involved in the plan. Hundreds of posters and signs were hung between Wednesday and Thursday night in different areas around the country (see above photo).

The Sovereignty movement explains that the three parameters that emerge from the signs are the major dangers of the overall plan to apply Israeli sovereignty to only 30 percent of Judea and Samaria in exchange for diplomatic negotiations on the rest of the territory.

The security dangers to Israel in the Trump Plan are real and little is being said about them. We believe that the Zionist vision must remain INTACT. Americans For A Safe Israel sees strong logic in the Sovereignty movement’s guiding principle: “Israel must apply its sovereignty to the entire land without any connection or affiliation to the Trump plan, which includes existential dangers to Israel’s future and severely damages the Zionist vision and historic connection of the People of Israel to the Land of Israel.”

PA Bank Freeze Suspended: Decision Backs Israel’s Murderers

Israel suspended an order signed less than a month ago that froze accounts in Palestinian Authority banks through which salaries were paid to murderers of Jews and their families.

As of this morning, the State of Israel is officially allowing Palestinian banks to once again transfer money and salaries to the murderers of the Israeli people. Notice of the order’s 45-day suspension was sent to the Palestinian Authority last night by decision of Defense Minister and Alternate Prime Minister Benny Gantz.

Security officials in Israel confirmed this and said the decision was made in light of recommendations by various bodies in the security system for re-examination and obtaining opinions on the significance of the order in light of its “sensitivity” and “tension in the field”.

We at Americans For A Safe Israel are baffled. What led to this utterly incomprehensible decision? These payments are the #1 incentive that drives PA terror against Israelis. Were Israel’s leaders pressured into making the decision and why? Just what kind of “re-examination and obtaining opinions” are needed here? Is Jewish blood on the PA’s hands not enough to drive the point home? The PA had made clear it was not going to stop the payments in any event. However, allowing for these payments to be made easily certainly does not help reduce the number of the Jewish victims. We would like to see Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reinstate the order now. The welfare of the Jewish people must come first and Gantz has clearly lost sight of this. His decision allows the cycle of terror to continue. STOP THE PAY FOR SLAY PAYMENTS!!!

Campaign Launch: NO HALF SOVEREIGNTY

The Samaria Regional Council launched a campaign this week titled: “There is No Half Sovereignty.” They are demanding that the Israeli government not recognize a Palestinian Arab state, leave isolated communities embedded within a terrorist state, or freeze construction as part of the application of Sovereignty over any parts of Judea and Samaria.

The campaign also expressed concern over the four communities in northern Samaria that were destroyed as part of the 2005 Disengagement.

Yossi Dagan, head of the Samaria Regional Council, addressed a letter to the Prime Minister. In it he wrote, among other things: “You must also announce the application of Sovereignty in the four northern Samaria communities, where Israeli control over them is critical to the survival of the State of Israel.”

Archived photo here shows Ministers of Knesset and ministers on a visit to Homesh one last time.

Anti-Semitism Disguised as Activism: Jewish Stores, Synagogues Looted, Vandalized in LA. America’s Tragedy Exploited to Advance Blame Israel Agenda

A number of kosher stores and synagogues were vandalized and looted in Los Angeles’ Fairfax neighborhood between Saturday night and Sunday morning. This is Anti-Semitism disguised as activism by people protesting last week’s killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Some of the synagogues damaged include Congregation Kehilas Yaakov, also known as Rabbi Gershon Bess Shul, and Tiferes Tzvi (Rabbi Ganzweig Shul) on Beverly Boulevard.

Democratic Socialists of America’s BDS national working group attempted to tie Israel to recent incidents of US police violence against minorities and has sparked outrage. Referring to unrest on the streets of Minneapolis, the group tweeted, “The police violence happening tonight in Minneapolis is straight out of the IDF playbook,” adding, “US cops train in Israel.”

Americans For A Safe Israel believes all people are created equal and enjoy equal protection under the law. However, when their cause is combined and corrupted with another, which demonizes Am Yisroel and Eretz Yisroel, we cannot support their movement.

In the Name of Sovereignty, This Map is Unacceptable

Judea and Samaria leaders met with lawmakers from the Likud, Jewish Home and Yamina parties this past week where they presented a map of the Palestinian state envisioned by the Trump plan.

The map shown here is what Yesha leaders stress is the Palestinian state, in red, as envisioned by the Trump plan.

The map highlights the 15 Jewish communities that would become isolated enclaves encircled by the Palestinian state. It also shows that many of the key highways running into and through Judea and Samaria such as Routes 5 and 60, would no longer be accessible to Israeli drivers. THIS MAP IS UNACCEPTABLE!

The Yesha umbrella council of mayors passed a resolution earlier this month declaring that it would not accept the Trump plan’s go ahead of Israeli annexation of parts of Judea and Samaria if it meant agreeing to the other key part of the proposal — the establishment of a Palestinian state.

Nothing less than 100% full Sovereignty (over time) is acceptable. To accept 80%, 75%, 50% percent Sovereignty does not guarantee the best interests of the Israeli people, its safety and security, along with its legal, historical and biblical right to their Jewish Land.

The Words That Bind. Abbas’ Comments May Backfire on Him

A three-judge panel that comprises the International Criminal Court’s (ICC) pretrial chamber has requested clarification from the PA over President Mahmoud Abbas’ statement regarding the termination of all agreements with Israel.

The justices are attempting to find out whether Abbas’ remarks apply to the Oslo Accords – signed in 1993 and 1995 – which helped establish the Palestinian Authority as an entity. Ramallah’s deadline to respond is June 10.

Abbas’ explosive response, emitted in a fit of pique regarding Israel’s rightful push to declare Sovereignty over Judea and Samaria, may have put the PA in somewhat of a bind.

“If it renounces the agreement that for the first time granted it autonomy in the areas it claims for its state, and thus hands the keys back to Israel, how can it argue that Palestine is a sovereign state that can transfer jurisdiction to The Hague for a war crimes investigation?” an Israeli official noted.

A Restoration of Israel’s Legal Territory

Within months, Israel’s new government will begin the process of declaring Sovereignty over Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria. According to binding international law, the move is legal. Most Israelis and many American Zionists support it for existential reasons.

The legal definition of annexation requires a state to declare Sovereignty over territory outside its domain. But since Judea and Samaria were within Israel’s legal borders in 1967, with Jordan the illegal occupier, the term annexation is corruptly misapplied here. It is rather restoration of Israel’s legal territory—to say nothing of its ancient biblical homeland.

MK Tzipi Hotovely (Likud) recently spoke to Arutz Sheva. When asked about MK Itzik Shmuli’s (Labor) promise to “hamper” the process of applying Sovereignty from within the government, Hotovely said: “Someone who chooses to oppose the idea that Judea and Samaria are an integral part of the Land of Israel – Jewish history will judge him. …The Prime Minister has promised to apply [Sovereignty] to Judea and Samaria, and that’s what’s important. Applying Sovereignty is this government’s most important event.”

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu discussed this at his Monday meeting. “For the first time since 1948, there is a historic opportunity to apply sovereignty in an agreed-upon fashion [with the US] as a diplomatic, sovereign act of the State of Israel in Judea and Samaria,” he said. “This is an opportunity that should not be missed.”

We have been promised time and time again that Sovereignty will be applied. Americans For A Safe Israel eagerly awaits for Israel’s new government to apply Sovereignty over Judea and Samaria. AFSI will not stop advocating for Israel’s legally valid right to exercise Sovereignty over her land until until it has become a reality.

Crimes Against G-d Will Set Iran Back Decades

Ahead of its recent annual al-Quds Day orgy of Israel-bashing, Iran’s parliament unanimously passed legislation banning “any cooperation” with Israel — specifically including the use of Israeli computer hardware and software — as a crime against G-d.

The new law bars cooperation with Zionists, including ‘hardware and software,’ as a crime against G-d. The law also means no computers, internet, cell phones; healthcare will surely be ravaged. That also means no BMW for Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

“An Iran without ‘Israel inside’ would make North Korea look advanced and cosmopolitan. Essentially, Iran would go back to the world of 50 years ago, maybe more. It would look like a huge Amish colony in Muslim garb. Meanwhile, it would be party time in the US, Israel, and most of the Arab world.” ~Saul Singer, author of Start Up Nation

You can’t make this stuff up. But this is Iran’s new law and it will devastate and constrain the Iranian people even more than they are now. Israel will have to be on high alert in the weeks that follow as Iran’s ‘blame Israel for our problems’ will be their new rhetoric.

YOM YERUSHALAYIM SAMEACH! Jerusalem Belongs to Israel and to the Jewish People Forever

Yom Yerushalayim (Jerusalem Day) this year is May 21-22 and is the anniversary of the liberation and unification of Jerusalem under Jewish Sovereignty that occurred during the Six Day War.

Shown here are David Rubinger’s famous photographs of IDF soldiers after liberating the Kotel (Western Wall) in June 1967.

The liberation of Jerusalem in 1967 marked the first time in thousands of years that the entire city of Jerusalem was under Jewish Sovereignty.
