NOW WE GOT A SPANISH FLOTILLA OF ISRAELHATE WOMEN COMING AGAINST ISRAELS DEFENCE SYSTEM.
28 And when these things begin to come to pass,(ALL THE PROPHECY SIGNS FROM THE BIBLE) then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption (RAPTURE) draweth nigh.
29 And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree,(ISRAEL) and all the trees;(ALL INDEPENDENT COUNTRIES)
30 When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand.(ISRAEL LITERALLY BECAME AND INDEPENDENT COUNTRY JUST BEFORE SUMMER IN MAY 14,1948.)
3 A fire devoureth (ATOMIC BOMB) before them;(RUSSIAN-ARAB-MUSLIM ARMIES AGAINST ISRAEL) and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.
30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.(ATOMIC BOMB AFFECT)
12 And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet,(DISOLVED FROM ATOMIC BOMB) and their eyes shall consume away in their holes,(DISOLVED FROM ATOMIC BOMB) and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.(DISOLVED FROM ATOMIC BOMB)(BECAUSE NUKES HAVE BEEN USED ON ISRAELS ENEMIES)(GOD PROTECTS ISRAEL AND ALWAYS WILL)
13 And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour.(1/2-3 BILLION DIE IN WW3)(THIS IS AN ATOMIC BOMB EFFECT)
47 And say to the forest of the south, Hear the word of the LORD; Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will kindle a fire in thee, and it shall devour every green tree in thee, and every dry tree: the flaming flame shall not be quenched, and all faces from the south to the north shall be burned therein.
18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD'S wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.
1 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven;(FROM ATOMIC BOMBS) and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
And here are the bounderies of the land that Israel will inherit either through war or peace or God in the future. God says its Israels land and only Israels land. They will have every inch God promised them of this land in the future.

Israel strikes Gaza in response to earlier mortar fire-IAF jets hit 3 Hamas targets in northern part of Strip; military says it holds ruling terror group responsible for all attacks from Palestinian enclave-By Judah Ari Gross and Times of Israel staff September 15, 2016, 4:23 am-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
The Israeli Air Force struck a number of targets in the Gaza Strip overnight Wednesday-Thursday, in response to an earlier mortar shell fired from the Palestinian enclave that landed in southern Israel.The military said Israeli jets struck three targets belonging to the Hamas terror group, which rules the Strip. The strikes were all carried out in northern Gaza, the IDF said in a statement.There were no immediate reports of injuries.The mortar shell fired from Gaza earlier landed in an open field in the Eshkol region, causing no injury or damage. As Israel’s alert system identified that the projectile was bound for an unpopulated area, no siren was sounded in the region.The IDF said it holds Hamas responsible for any attacks emanating from Gaza. The military routinely responds to such launches with strikes inside the Palestinian territory.The last time a projectile was fired from Gaza was last month when a missile launched from the coastal enclave landed in the Israeli city of Sderot, causing no injury.In response to the rocket fire, Israel launched two attacks on Hamas infrastructure in the Gaza Strip. The first was a more limited assault, while the second comprised nearly 50 strikes on “key Hamas strategic assets,” military sources said at the time.Launches from Gaza are infrequent and usually carried out by small fringe groups without the approval of Gaza’s Hamas rulers.The Gaza mortar fire came as most of the Israeli public’s attention was focused on the country’s northern borders, as for the third day in a row errant rockets from the fighting in Syria landed in the Golan Heights.
Jerusalem hits back at France for criticizing West Bank demolitions-After Paris decried ‘unprecedented’ rise in destruction of facilities it funds, Israel says donor countries must not aid ‘provocations’ meant to create facts on the ground-By Raphael Ahren September 15, 2016, 3:07 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
Jerusalem hit back at France Thursday for having harshly criticized Israel’s intensifying campaign to demolish unauthorized European-funded humanitarian facilities in the West Bank, accusing Paris and other donors in the international community of aiding Palestinian “provocations” meant to create facts on the ground.Last week, Israel demolished facilities in the Palestinian village of Aqaba, which lies in the Israeli-controlled Area C of the West Bank, triggering international condemnation. The buildings were built by France and other European Union member states for humanitarian purposes but without prior approval by the Israeli government.Israel’s demolitions of unauthorized foreign-funded structures in the West Bank has long been a bone of contention, with Jerusalem and the European Union arguing over the legality of such structures. The EU argues that Israel, as an occupying power, is responsible for the Palestinian civilian population and that the international community is allowed to build facilities to help when there is need. Israel rejects this argument.Last week’s demolition in Aqaba marked the fourth time that Israel destroyed humanitarian structures funded by French humanitarian assistance since the start of 2016, the French Foreign Ministry lamented in a statement released Wednesday.“France expresses its deep concern at the continuation — at an unprecedented rate — of the demolition and confiscation of structures intended for the Palestinian population,” the statement continued. Paris called on Jerusalem end such demolitions, which it argued violated international law and endanger a two-state solution.Israel on Thursday rejected the French statement as “incorrect.”“France, like the other European countries, is committed to coordinating with Israel on any construction in Area C,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Emmanuel Nahshon said. “Having failed to do so, France cannot complain about Israel demolishing illegal buildings whose construction was not coordinated with Israel.”According to the Oslo Accords, Israel alone is responsible for civilian issues in Area C, including planning and building, Nahshon added. “As is customary in every country of laws, Israel does not allow construction without proper permits. In this case the construction is done without government approval in a non-residential area and therefore Israel executed its authority and demolished the buildings.”Jerusalem expects from the international community only to fund legal constructions and to refrain from assisting “illegal provocations, whose only objective is to create facts on the ground” and violate signed agreements between Israel and the Palestinians, Nahshon said.
All-female flotilla sets out from Barcelona to Gaza-2 boats bear food, medicine, but group says it’s ‘mainly carrying a message of hope and solidarity’-By Times of Israel staff September 15, 2016, 5:22 pm
Two boats carrying 22 women in all set sail Wednesday night from Barcelona toward Gaza, in an attempt to breach Israel’s maritime blockade on the Hamas-run Strip.The flotilla, organized by the Women’s Boat to Gaza group, is the latest in a series of boat trips that Israeli officials have termed provocations, a number of which have sparked major international incidents.Those aboard the newest attempt include Swedish European Parliament Member Malin Bjork and Dr. Fouzia Hassan of Malaysia, according to Al Jazeera.The two boats — named Amal (hope in Arabic) and Zaytouna (olive in Arabic) — are slated to near Gaza’s shores in early October.“We are carrying food and medicine on the boat that will be distributed to Gazans upon arrival,” Zohar Chamberlain Regev, a spokeswoman of the initiative, told Al Jazeera.“But mainly we are carrying a message of hope and solidarity, because we think Gazans want that most of all,” she said.The Women’s Boat to Gaza is part of the larger Freedom Flotilla Campaign, which announced the initiative last November.The Freedom Flotilla Campaign said it planned to send two more boats: one in 2017 to show “solidarity with the fishermen of Gaza” and a second the next year “carrying hundreds of supporters from around the world.”Israel maintains its security blockade on Gaza to prevent Hamas, an Islamist terror group that seized control of the Strip in 2007, from importing weaponry. Hamas, which avowedly seeks Israel’s destruction, has fought three conflicts against Israel since it took over Gaza, firing thousands of rockets indiscriminately into Israel, and digging tunnels under the border. It continues to test and improve its rockets in anticipation of further conflict, and has resumed digging tunnels in the wake of a 50-day conflict with Israel in the summer of 2014.The Freedom Flotilla Coalition is a loose coalition of pro-Palestinian and anti-Israel groups from the EU, Canada, Turkey, the US and South Africa.Last year the group sent a ship from Sweden to Gaza carrying several activists, including Israeli-Arab MK Basel Ghattas and former Tunisian president Moncef Marzouki.The boat, which organizers said was carrying humanitarian aid, was stopped by Israeli forces before reaching Gazan waters and those aboard were detained, but it managed to shine an international spotlight on the Palestinian enclave.The aid on the ship eventually turned out be a single solar panel and one nebulizer.The first flotilla to Gaza, led by the Mavi Marmara ship, was intercepted by IDF naval commandos who were attacked as they boarded, leading to a melee during which 10 Turkish activists were killed and several Israeli soldiers were wounded, two of them seriously.While that incident gave Israel a diplomatic black eye and contributed to a deterioration of ties with Turkey, Jerusalem has since apologized as part of major reconciliation deal with Ankara.
PA on brink of financial crisis if donors don’t step in, report warns-World Bank calls for Israel to ease West Bank restrictions to allow Palestinian economy to flourish, says less than half of the billions pledged to Gaza have reached battered enclave-By Times of Israel staff and AFP September 15, 2016, 4:54 pm
The Palestinian Authority is nearing a financial crisis if donors do not to step in to fill a shortfall of over half a billion dollars, the World Bank warned in a report published Thursday.The report, to be presented in New York next week to a meeting of the Ad Hoc Liaison Committee, which coordinates international donor support for the Palestinians, also said that less than half of the $3.5 billion pledged by donor states to rebuild the Gaza Strip after the 2014 war between Israel and Hamas has been doled out.The report on the Palestinian economy urged international donor support to stave off a crisis in the Palestinian Authority and maintain Palestinian budget-cutting achievements.“The PA’s finances remain fragile with declining budget support leading to a projected financing gap of about $600 million (530 million euros) in 2016,” the report said.“In the short term, donor support and in particular budget support is essential to avoid a fiscal crisis leading to wider economic problems,” the report said.Over the past 10 years the Palestinian Authority slashed its deficit by an amount equal to 15 percent of its gross domestic product, “an achievement rarely seen in other places around the world,” the report said.Yet it said Ramallah could not close the gap on its own “particularly since local borrowing opportunities are now largely exhausted.”It said that the Palestinian economy would remain hobbled as long as the conflict with Israel continued, “but meaningful steps can avoid further deterioration.”Recent Israeli decisions to increase the quota of Palestinian laborers working in Israel were praised by the bank but the report said the Jewish state still needed to scale back on measures that stifle the Palestinian economy.It noted the 27% unemployment in the Palestinian territories is partly due to low Palestinian employment in Israel. Before the Second Intifada in 2000, Israel employed close to a quarter of the Palestinian labor force.Additionally, the Palestinian Authority has one of the lowest levels of private investment in the world due to Israeli security and bureaucratic measures, the report argued. It suggested Jerusalem scale back restrictions on Palestinian business ventures, especially in Area C of the West Bank, which is under Israeli civil and military control.The Bank argued that access to economic activity in Area C could increase the Palestinian GDP by as much as 35%. The majority of this impact would stem from agriculture and Dead Sea minerals processing industries, the report said.-Gaza donations not coming through-On Gaza, the World Bank reported that just 46 percent of the $3.5 billion pledged in the aftermath of the conflict for the Palestinian territory’s reconstruction has been realized.The Strip was battered in a July-August 2014 war between Israel and the Hamas terror group which rules the coastal enclave. An Israeli ground incursion followed after airstrikes failed to halt the rocket fire emanating from the Strip aimed at Israeli civilian targets.The fighting destroyed or damaged thousands of homes and left tens of thousands homeless in Gaza, where fighters had embedded rocket launchers and other military infrastructure in residential neighborhoods.Reconstruction has been painfully slow. A mere 16% of the plan to restore Gaza after the war has been completed, the report found.“Only 10.7 percent of the 11,000 housing units that were totally destroyed in the war have been rebuilt to date, and about 50 percent of partially and severely damaged houses still need to be repaired.”“The situation in Gaza is of great concern and the conditions required for post-reconstruction sustainable economic growth are not being put in place,” the organization’s West Bank and Gaza country director, Marina Wes, wrote.“Over 70,000 people are suffering from prolonged internal displacement,” she noted.
UC Berkeley suspends course labeled anti-Israel by critics-‘Palestine: A Settler Colonial Analysis,’ which explored a ‘decolonial alternative’ to Israel, failed to meet academic standards, officials say-By JTA September 14, 2016, 12:57 am-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
SAN FRANCISCO (J. Weekly via JTA) — The University of California, Berkeley, has suspended a student-led course, “Palestine: A Settler Colonial Analysis,” following an outcry from Jewish community leaders who called it biased, anti-Zionist and in violation of the university’s academic standards.The university made the decision Tuesday after determining that the student facilitator, Paul Hadweh, “did not comply with policies and procedures that govern the normal academic review and approval of proposed courses for the DeCal program” for student-led courses, said Dan Mogulof, the school’s assistant vice chancellor.A day earlier, Berkeley Hillel and its international umbrella group had called on the university’s president, Janet Napolitano, and administrators to condemn the one-credit course in a strongly worded statement.“Any perusal of the syllabus will show that this is a one-sided course which puts forth a political agenda,” Hillel International President and CEO Eric Fingerhut and Berkeley Hillel Executive Director Rabbi Adam Naftalin-Kelman said in the statement. “It does not tell the truth. It ignores history. It ignores facts, such as the inconvenient one that Jews have inhabited Israel for 3,000 years. This course seems to be a matter of political indoctrination in the classroom and is a violation of the newly adopted principles by the UC regents on intolerance.”The course was to be offered as part of the university’s DeCal program in which students propose and teach one-credit courses under the supervision of a faculty sponsor. Other DeCal classes offered this academic year include “Cal Pokeman Academy,” “Art Anatomy” and “Science in Oakland Elementary Schools.”The course syllabus said it would cover the history of Palestine from the 1880s to the present and “explore the connection between Zionism and settler colonialism.” Students were to be required to attend an event “relating to Palestine” during the semester and make a final presentation proposing a “decolonial alternative” to the region’s problems not restricted to the two-state solution.Forty-three Jewish and educational organizations signed a letter by the Santa Cruz-based Amcha Initiative, a nonprofit that monitors anti-Semitism in higher education, addressed to UC Berkeley Chancellor Nicholas Dirks expressing deep concern about the course.“A review of the syllabus … reveals that the course’s objectives, reading materials and guest speakers are politically motivated, meet our government’s criteria for anti-Semitism and are intended to indoctrinate students to hate the Jewish State and take action to eliminate it,” the letter said.The letter called the faculty sponsor, Hatem Bazian, “a well-known anti-Zionist activist who is also the chairman of American Muslims for Palestine.”
Touting aid deal, Obama says true Israeli security requires Palestinian statehood-US president says military package will help Israel defend itself but ‘long-term security’ depends on creating ‘an independent and viable Palestine’-By Raoul Wootliff September 14, 2016, 11:42 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
US President Barack Obama said Wednesday that while the massive new military aid deal for Israel — Washington’s largest defense package to any country in history — would help Israel defend itself, “long-term security” can only be achieved by the creation of “an independent and viable Palestine.”Signed at a State Department ceremony earlier on Wednesday, the new package will grant Israel $3.8 billion annually — up from the $3 billion pledged under the previous agreed-upon MOU — starting in 2018 and through 2028.In a statement released shortly after the signing, Obama described the agreement, known as the memorandum of understanding, as “just the most recent reflection of my steadfast commitment to the security of the State of Israel,” citing billions of dollars already provided by his administration over the past eight years.“Over the past eight years, my administration has time and again demonstrated this commitment in word and deed,” he said, stressing that this deal will help Israel address its defense needs.“Both Prime Minister Netanyahu and I are confident that the new MOU will make a significant contribution to Israel’s security in what remains a dangerous neighborhood. The continued supply of the world’s most advanced weapons technology will ensure that Israel has the ability to defend itself from all manner of threats.”But the US president said a bolstered military was not enough to secure long-term stability for the Jewish state. He said America’s commitment to Israel’s security meant more than just giving military aid.“It is because of this same commitment to Israel and its long-term security that we will also continue to press for a two-state solution to the longstanding Israeli-Palestinian conflict, despite the deeply troubling trends on the ground that undermine this goal,” he said.“As I have emphasized previously, the only way for Israel to endure and thrive as a Jewish and democratic state is through the realization of an independent and viable Palestine. Ultimately, both this MOU and efforts to advance the two-state solution are motivated by the same core US objective that has been shared by all administrations, Democratic and Republican, over the last several decades — ensuring that Israelis can live alongside their neighbors in peace and security.”Speaking before the ceremony, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thanked the United States for what he described as the “unprecedented” and “historic” defense aid package.“This agreement will ensure an unprecedented level of defense aid for Israel in the next decade,” Netanyahu said in a video. “This is the largest military aid package the US has ever given out to any nation.”“The agreement will help us continue building our armed forces, improve our missile defense systems,” he added. “I want to thank President Obama and his administration for this historic agreement.”Writing on Twitter, Israeli ambassador to the US Ron Dermer thanked Obama directly for “forging this historic agreement.”Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton released a statement praising the deal saying that it “sends a clear message to the region and the world that we will always stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Israel.”“The agreement will help solidify and chart a course for the US-Israeli defense relationship in the 21st century as we face a range of common challenges from Iran’s destabilizing activities to the threats from ISIS and radical jihadism, and efforts to delegitimize Israel on the world stage,” she said.Under the terms of the deal, Israel pledged not to seek additional funding from Congress for the next decade. The agreement also includes a provision curtailing Israel’s ability to spend the funds on its own arms industry over the next six years — a key area of dispute during talks. Washington had wanted Israel to spend a larger amount of the funds on American-made products. Currently, Israel can spend 26.3 percent of US military aid buying from its own domestic defense companies.The US also reportedly wanted to remove a clause in the memorandum that allows Israel to spend $400 million a year on “military fuels.”According to earlier reports, Israel had asked for a separate, $400 million deal for missile defense spending — which could have raised the total amount to more than $4 billion annually. However, the final figure was set without that provision.In his statement, Netanyahu acknowledged the recent diplomatic disputes between Jerusalem and Washington, but said they “had no effect whatsoever on the great friendship between Israel and the US.”“These are disputes you have between family,” Netanyahu said. “This agreement demonstrates the simple truth that the relationship between Israel and the US is strong and powerful.”
EU Parliament chief: Trump a problem ‘for the whole world’-Republican candidate’s doctor declares him in ‘excellent physical health’-By Marissa Newman September 15, 2016, 2:05 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
18:51-EU Parliament chief: Trump a problem ‘for whole world’-The president of the European Parliament says he fears that a victory in the US presidential election for Donald Trump, whom he labels “apparently irresponsible,” could boost what he calls “imitators” in Europe.Martin Schulz, a member of Germany’s center-left Social Democrats, tells German magazine Der Spiegel in comments published Thursday that the Republican nominee is a problem “for the whole world.”Schulz is quoted as saying: “If a man sits in the White House who flirts with having no idea and labels expertise as elitist baloney, a critical point is reached.” He says that would mean “an apparently irresponsible man” being in a position that requires the highest sense of responsibility.Schulz, who leads the 28-nation European Union’s legislative assembly, adds: “My concern is that he could also boost imitators in Europe.” He didn’t elaborate.— AP-18:00-Trump’s doctor declares him in ‘excellent physical health’-Donald Trump releases lab results Thursday from a recent medical examination, with his personal physician stating that the Republican presidential candidate “is in excellent physical health.”The 70-year-old Trump, who is 6 foot 3 inches (1.90 meters) tall, weighs 236 pounds (107 kilograms), and his liver and thyroid functions are “all within the normal range,” his longtime doctor Harold Bornstein writes in a one-page letter that also lists Trump’s cholesterol, triglycerides, blood sugar and blood pressure results.“He takes a lipid lowering agent (rosuvastatin) and a low dose aspirin. He does not use tobacco products or alcohol,” he adds.— AFP-17:52--UN chief slams Netanyahu’s ‘outrageous’ claim on ‘ethnic cleansing’-UN director-general Ban Ki-Moon slams as “unacceptable and outrageous” a video posted by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu last week, in which he insisted that Palestinians were seeking the “ethnic cleansing” of Jews in the West Bank.“I am disturbed by a recent statement by Israel’s Prime Minister portraying those who oppose settlement expansion as supporters of ethnic cleansing. This is unacceptable and outrageous,” Ban told the UN Security Council. “Let me be absolutely clear: settlements are illegal under international law. The occupation, stifling and oppressive, must end.”The UN chief also condemns the Palestinian ongoing “glorification of terror” and rocket fire against Israel.“I continue to be appalled that Palestinian parties choose to praise despicable acts, such as the 1972 terrorist attack against Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics. The glorification of terror is disgraceful and the Palestinian leadership must put an end to it,” he says.On Gaza and the tit-for-tat fire between Israel and Syria on the northern front, the UN chief urges restraint.“Just yesterday, militants in Gaza fired yet another rocket into Israel, which I condemn. Israel fired four missiles at targets in Gaza in response. Once again I reiterate that such attacks and the response they elicit do not serve the cause of peace,” he says.“Turning to the Golan, I remain concerned by the continued breaches of the ceasefire line, and by fighting in the areas of separation and limitation. These developments undermine the 1974 Disengagement of Forces Agreement, and jeopardize the ceasefire between Israel and Syria.“In particular, recent fire from the Syrian Arab Armed Forces, impacted the Israeli-occupied Golan. On both occasions, Israeli Defense Forces responded with an airstrike. I call on Israel and Syria to abide by the terms of the Disengagement Agreement and exercise maximum restraint.”17:48-Some of Golan Heights shells fired by rebels-Some of the stray mortar fire from Syria that hit the Golan Heights was fired by rebels, rather than regime forces, Israeli security sources say.There is no indication the fire is directly targeting Israel or that the IDF plans on changing tactics on retaliating solely against Syrian government forces.Israel holds the Syrian government responsible for the shells, which have thus far landed in open areas in the Golan Heights, causing no damage or injuries.— Avi Issacharoff-17:31-Trump ‘feels 35,’ like golf bud Tom Brady; ‘it’s crazy’-Donald Trump says that, when he looks in the mirror, he sees a man much younger than his 70 years.He says: “I would say I see a person that’s 35 years old.”Trump speaks on “The Dr. Oz Show” in an interview broadcast Thursday.Trump says that he sometimes plays golf with New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. He says that when he’s with the 39-year-old Brady, “I feel I’m the same age as him. It’s crazy.”Trump says that when you’re running for president, “you have an obligation to be healthy” because the job requires it.— AP-17:16-Trump says giving speeches keeps him fit-Donald Trump says that standing at a podium, delivering his signature rally speeches, is one of the ways he stays healthy on the campaign trail.The Republican presidential nominee says that delivering his speeches is “a really healthy act.” He appears on “The Dr. Oz Show,” in an interview that was taped Wednesday and broadcast Thursday.Trump says giving speeches is “a lot of work” and he’s “using a lot of motion.”-He says: “I guess that’s a form of exercise?”— AP-15:38-France calls on US to share details of Syria deal-France on Thursday calls for the United States to disclose the details of the Syria deal it brokered with Russia last week to its allies bombing jihadists in the war-torn country.“It is important that there be good information and I hope we will receive it quickly,” French foreign minister Jean-Marc Ayrault says, referring to the US-Russia deal. “It seems to us that allies can certainly exchange information.”— AFP-15:23--Peres still sedated, being ‘closely monitored’-The office of former president Shimon Peres says he is still being “closely monitored.”“He is being closely monitored by his doctors, and continues to receive treatment as previously set forth. To enable him to rest, he is still sedated and on a respirator. Updates will be announced should there be any change in condition,” it says.15:03--Likud slams Barak’s ‘pathetic comeback’-The Likud party slams former prime minister Ehud Barak after the latter pens an op-ed in The Washington Post deriding Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s “reckless conduct.”The party dismisses the “nonsense” by the “most failed prime minister in Israel’s history” who is attempting a “pathetic [political] comeback.”“The publication of an article that bashes Israel in the US media on the day the largest aid deal in the history of the US was signed is just further proof that Ehud Barak does not have Israel’s best interests at heart,” it says.
