Netanyahu slams liberal groups for ‘violating’ Western Wall status quo-Comments come after women pray at holy site with Torah scrolls, meeting fierce protest from Haredi worshipers-By Times of Israel staff November 2, 2016, 2:19 pm
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu chastised non-Orthodox Jewish movements and pluralistic prayer advocates Wednesday, over a march and prayer service they held at the women’s section of Jerusalem’s Western Wall earlier in the day, in protest of ongoing restrictions on non-Orthodox worship at the foot of Judaism’s holiest site.“The unfortunate incident this morning at the Western Wall does not help advance a solution for prayer arrangements there,” the prime minister said in a statement released by his office. “The prime minister and the speaker of the Knesset said yesterday to the leaders of the non-Orthodox movements [gathered at the Jewish Agency Board of Governors meeting in Jerusalem] that now is the time for dialogue and not for unnecessary friction. The unilateral violation of the status quo at the Western Wall this morning undermines our ongoing efforts to reach a compromise.”Video footage appeared to show at least 100 people joining the march into the Western Wall plaza and the ensuing prayer service. The Israeli Reform movement said in a press release that “dozens” of Torah scrolls were carried into the women’s section, a first at the site, which is under the control of the ultra-Orthodox rabbinic establishment.Scuffles broke out as some ultra-Orthodox onlookers and Western Wall officials lunged for the Torah scrolls carried by the protesters and attempted to physically bar them from entering the prayer area.The prayer and protest came, as always, at the start of the new month on the Hebrew calendar, and a day after Netanyahu urged liberal Jewish movements to refrain from voicing protest over the enduring status quo on worship at the Western Wall.The movements are protesting the non-implementation of a compromise passed in a January 31 cabinet decision calling for a permanent prayer platform to be built along the southern end of the Western Wall in part of the Davidson Archaeological Park, otherwise known as Robinson’s Arch. There is currently a temporary prayer platform set up there in two distinct areas of the park.Ultra-Orthodox lawmakers have opposed the compromise, delaying its implementation indefinitely.Women of the Wall, the activist group that has spearheaded efforts to change the status quo in favor of pluralistic prayer services at the holy site, rejected Netanyahu’s criticism on Wednesday, telling The Times of Israel’s Raphael Ahren on Twitter that “Mr. Netanyahu has not taken a single step towards implementing *his government’s decision* on the Kotel [Western Wall] accord!”Mr. Netanyahu has not taken a single step towards implementing *his government's decision* on the Kotel accord! @RaphaelAhren @IsraeliPM— Women of the Wall (@Womenofthewall) November 2, 2016-In a statement responding to Netanyahu, the Israeli Reform movement’s CEO, Rabbi Gilad Kariv, praised the prime minister’s “honest efforts to advance a compromise framework at the Kotel in recent years,” using the Hebrew term for the Western Wall. But, he added, “we believe his criticism should be directed to his coalition partners in the Haredi parties.”Kariv went on to decry “a campaign of incitement against Reform Judaism” as the government put off implementing January’s compromise.During the morning protest, police attempted to separate the tussling sides, but for the most part did not interfere either with the pluralistic protest or with attempts by Western Wall staffers and ultra-Orthodox worshipers to hinder them. Eyewitnesses said officers hovered close by, ready to intervene if the scuffles escalated.Kids whistling loudly with adult encouragement. Screaming "Nazis! Nazis!" at @Womenofthewall— Eylon Aslan-Levy (@EylonALevy) November 2, 2016-Anat Hoffman, chair of Women of the Wall, was elated at her group’s success at holding its morning prayers with Torah scrolls.“I feel this day is Simhat Torah, a little late,” she told Israel Radio. Simhat Torah is a holiday that celebrates the completion of the annual cycle of Torah readings. It fell on October 24 this year.“For the first time in history,” Hoffman added, “a Torah scroll is in the women’s section. It’s a historic day. Every day, women should be allowed to read from the Torah if they’re interested. And at bat mitzvot. The time has come.”Leaders of the Reform and Conservative movements also took part in the march.In his comments a day earlier, on Tuesday, Netanyahu said: “We are one people and we have one Wall. Yes, it’s our Wall. And we have problems with the Wall now, but we’re working on it. The less we work on it publicly, the more likely we are to arrive at a solution.”“The last thing we need now to resolve this sensitive issue — while the world is saying that we have nothing, no patrimony there, at a place that has been our spiritual center for over 3,000 years — the last thing we need now is more friction,” the prime minister said, referring to two UNESCO resolutions that ignore Jewish ties to the Temple Mount and the Western Wall in Jerusalem.When it was approved in January, the compromise plan was heralded as a symbol of “Jewish unity” throughout most of the Jewish Diaspora. But within days of its jubilant announcement the cabinet decision drew the ire of the ultra-Orthodox parties in Netanyahu’s tenuous coalition, which view the Western Wall plaza as an open-air Orthodox synagogue. Its implementation has been on ice ever since. In March, Interior Minister Aryeh Deri, head of the ultra-Orthodox Shas party, has reportedly said the Western Wall plan “is over.”There was no immediate statement Wednesday from the Western Wall Heritage Foundation, which runs the site, or from ultra-Orthodox lawmakers who have fought against the compromise plan.
State asks High Court to delay Amona outpost demolition-After over a decade of legal wrangling, government seeks another seven-month extension to December evacuation order-By AP November 1, 2016, 3:36 am-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
The government has asked the High Court of Justice to delay the court-ordered evacuation later this year of a West Bank outpost built on private Palestinian land.The state asked the court for a seven-month extension on Monday.After over a decade of delays and legal wrangling, the High Court ruled in 2014 that the Amona outpost, which lies east of Ramallah, was built on private Palestinian land and must be demolished by December 25. The impending evacuation has threatened to destabilize Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s coalition, which relies heavily on the pro-settlement right.Pro-settler lawmakers have tried to find a legal loophole to keep the outpost in place, but Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit has warned that attempting to legislate approval for the seizure of private lands would be unconstitutional.Amona is the largest of about 100 West Bank outposts built without permission but generally tolerated by the government. These are in addition to 120 settlements that Israel considers legal.Times of Israel staff contributed to this report.
Foreign Ministry: Amona relocation could cause serious international backlash-Diplomats say proposal to move residents of illegal outpost to nearby empty, unclaimed land, is unlikely to pass test of international law-By Times of Israel staff October 31, 2016, 12:27 am
Foreign Ministry officials are opposed to a proposed Justice Ministry plan to relocate the embattled Amona settlement outpost to a nearby empty plot of land, saying it runs contrary to international law and would likely cause serious international damage to Israel’s image.The initiative is one of several options currently on the table as the Israeli leadership contends with a Supreme Court court order to demolish Amona by year’s end.The Justice Ministry plan seeks to move the residents to “non-permanent” homes on an adjacent plot of land whose owners — Palestinians who left the area during the 1967 Six Day War — are not known.The land would be offered to the families in renewable three-year rental contracts. The contracts would include an article explicitly affirming that if the rightful owner of the land returns to the West Bank, the contracts would be voided and the land handed to him or her.According to an Army Radio report in August, the proposal’s authors claimed it would meet the standards of international law, because the land would be used on a rental basis, and no ownership would be claimed by its residents.However a top Foreign Ministry official told Haaretz on Sunday that diplomats oppose the plan.At a recent meeting with Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit, ministry representatives asserted that the proposal could not in fact be justified by the standards of international law.They also noted that the US was vehemently opposed to the plan, seeing it as a breach of Jerusalem’s past assurances that it would not appropriate Palestinian lands for new construction. Thus, regardless of whether it were strictly legal, the proposition could carry serious consequences for the relationship with Washington.Another solution the government is considering is the so-called regulation bill, which seeks to recognize Amona and other illegal outposts in the West Bank, proposing that Palestinian owners whose lands have been appropriated for settlements or outposts receive alternate plots of land, in addition to financial compensation amounting to 50 percent of the land’s value.The Ministerial Committee for Legislation on Sunday announced a week’s postponement for a vote on the controversial bill, which has been deemed unconstitutional by Mandelblit. According to the Ynet news website, Sunday’s delay came after Mandelblit asked the committee to reject a vote on the legislation.As another alternative, the government recently approved the construction of nearly 100 new housing units in the West Bank settlement of Shiloh to compensate homeowners of Amona. This, too, drew a furious response from Washington.Amona, founded in 1995, is home to about 40 families. It is the largest of about 100 unauthorized outposts — built without permission but generally tolerated by the government — that dot the West Bank. A partial evacuation a decade ago sparked violent clashes between residents and security forces and it is feared a new evacuation could trigger another showdown.In 2008, a group of Palestinians represented by the Israeli rights group Yesh Din petitioned the Supreme Court claiming Amona settlers had encroached on their land and demanding the entire outpost be dismantled. The court petition set off a protracted legal battle that saw a number of proposed evacuation dates missed and repeatedly delayed until a final ruling in 2014 ordered the state to demolish the outpost by December 25, 2016. The state also agreed to compensate the landowners with about $75,000.
Right-wing MKs float new bid to stave off outpost evacuation-Revisions come after attorney general terms earlier draft to save Amona ‘unconstitutional’; ‘It resolves all the legal problems that were raised,’ spokesperson claims-By Marissa Newman November 2, 2016, 6:45 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
Right-wing Knesset members from the Jewish Home and Likud parties on Wednesday filed an amended bill to recognize unauthorized West Bank outposts and illegal construction, a proposal designed to avert the court-ordered demolition of the Amona outpost by the end of the year.After years of delays and legal wrangling, the High Court ruled in 2014 that the Amona outpost, which lies east of Ramallah, was built on private Palestinian land and must be demolished by December 25 of this year. The impending evacuation has threatened to destabilize Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s strongly right-wing coalition.The state asked the court for a seven-month extension on Monday.Right-wing lawmakers have been seeking a legal loophole to prevent the evacuation with a bill that would formally recognize West Bank outposts. But the earlier version of the bill, proposed by Jewish Home MK Shuli Moalem-Refaeli, was deemed unconstitutional by Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit.“The proposals seek to retroactively cancel a final and conclusive ruling by the Supreme Court on specific cases, something that has no precedent and will strike a fatal blow to the rule of law,” Mandelblit said in September, adding that it would also run contrary to international law.On Wednesday, a spokesperson for Jewish Home MK Bezalel Smotrich, who submitted the proposal, asserted that the new bill addresses the legal concerns raised regarding the earlier draft. Likud MKs David Bitan — who also serves as coalition chairman — and Yoav Kisch are also signatories on the proposal.“It resolves all the legal problems that were raised [with the previous bill],” the spokesperson said.There was no immediate response from the attorney general and it was not immediately clear whether the new measure would gain the necessary support needed to stave off the evacuation.Under the new bill, unauthorized construction on privately owned Palestinian land will be legalized only if the residents can “prove government involvement,” Smotrich’s spokesperson said. “The law only applies to [places] where the government built,” he said.Moreover, while Moalem-Refaeli’s bill allowed the government to appropriate land, the new draft only gives it the right to use the plots, while keeping the properties on the original landowners’ names, he said.The state will compensate the owners financially or with alternate plots, according to their individual requests, the proposal stipulates. The state will also appoint an Israeli legal authority to deal with the lawsuits, it said.Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein on Wednesday announced he would support the softened version of the bill.“We cannot allow that Amona and Ofra, for which the danger of evacuation looms over them under the High Court’s instructions, become a precedent for destroying the settlements in Judea and Samaria,” Edelstein, who lives in a settlement south of Jerusalem, said in a statement. “I am hoping for a negotiated solution, and at the same time, we will advance the ‘regulation bill,’ in its moderate version, which was submitted today.”Alongside Smotrich, the bill was also endorsed by Likud MK Kisch, who on Tuesday conceded that Amona would was liable to be evacuated by the December 25 court deadline.“That’s the assessment as of now,” the Likud MK tweeted on Tuesday. “Update: I am leading, along with Smotrich, a legal process to prevent the evacuation,” he added. “It’s a dramatic process, and difficult to assess the chances [that it will be successful].”The bill is expected to be debated by the Ministerial Committee for Legislation this upcoming Sunday or the following Sunday, according to the spokesperson for the Jewish Home lawmaker.Last Sunday, the ministerial panel announced a week’s postponement for a vote on the earlier draft of the controversial bill. According to the Ynet news website, Sunday’s delay came after Mandelblit asked the committee to reject a vote on the legislation.The postponement was announced after Netanyahu met with coalition leaders as well as Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked, who had intended to bring the bill to the committee for a vote.Earlier Sunday, a Likud minister told Army Radio that if a consensus on deferring the vote was not reached, Netanyahu’s cabinet would back the controversial legislation.Meanwhile, Social Equality Minister Gila Gamliel (Likud), a member of the committee, announced Sunday she would support Moalem-Refaeli’s bill.Amona, founded in 1995, is home to about 40 families. It is the largest of about 100 unauthorized outposts — built without permission but generally tolerated by the government — that dot the West Bank. A partial evacuation a decade ago sparked violent clashes between residents and security forces and it is feared a new evacuation could trigger another showdown.In 2008, a group of Palestinians represented by the Israeli rights group Yesh Din petitioned the Supreme Court claiming Amona settlers had encroached on their land and demanding the entire outpost be dismantled. The court petition set off a protracted legal battle that saw a number of proposed evacuation dates missed and repeatedly delayed until a final ruling in 2014 ordered the state to demolish the outpost by December 25, 2016. The state also agreed to compensate the landowners with about $75,000.As a result of the court ruling, various alternatives have been raised by politicians, including Moaelem-Refaeli’s so-called regulation bill, which proposes the Palestinian owners whose lands have been appropriated for settlements or outposts receive alternate plots of land in the West Bank, in addition to financial compensation amounting to 50 percent of the land’s value.A similar law to recognize outposts was knocked down in its preliminary reading in the Knesset in 2012, after Netanyahu opposed it and threatened to fire any minister or deputy minister who voted in favor.Nonetheless, the bill was given new life in September with a petition signed by 25 of the 30 Likud Knesset members, including top ministers, backing it.Other alternatives proposed by the government to the Amona evacuation have included the replication of the outpost on nearby plots whose owners are not known.The government also approved the construction of nearly 100 new housing units in the West Bank settlement of Shiloh to compensate homeowners of Amona, drawing a furious response from Washington.AP contributed to this report.
Netanyahu folds, postpones vote to gut new public broadcaster-After meeting with Finance Minster, PM agrees to interim committee to assess costs of new media corporation instead of dismantling it-By Raoul Wootliff November 2, 2016, 7:53 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
Amid growing opposition over his planned reversal of vast reforms to Israel’s state-owned media, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has postponed a vote to dismantle a newly created public broadcasting corporation, agreeing instead to establish a temporary committee to asses the issue.Netanyahu and Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon reached an agreement Wednesday to set up a committee to look at whether the new broadcaster would — as the prime minister has claimed — incur prolific and wasteful costs, the two announced in a joint statement.The decision came following “Kahlon’s instance that the budget for the public broadcaster would not exceed the allocated funds,” the statement read.The announcement means that a Likud-led bill to cancel the previous legislation which created the new broadcaster, previously slated to be voted on next week, will be postponed.In 2014, the Knesset passed wide-reaching reforms closing the ailing Israel Broadcasting Authority, which politicians at the time described as increasingly irrelevant and costly, and replacing it with a new broadcasting corporation called “Kan.”Likud officials have claimed that cancelling the new corporation would save the state some NIS 2.5 billion ($658 million), a figure later ridiculed by the Finance Ministry and Interior Minister Gilad Erdan, who shepherded the original law when he served as communications minister.Critics from both the coalition and the opposition say the real reason for the move was Netanyahu’s fear of the corporation’s political independence.On Monday, Kahlon broke his silence on the issue, threatening to torpedo the prime minister’s efforts. Speaking at the Knesset Finance Committee, Kahlon said he was opposed to the costly zigzagging by the government over what to do with the new corporation, saying that billions of shekels would be wasted were it to be shut down.“Canceling the corporation would mean losing NIS 1.7 billion ($442 million) immediately and NIS 370 million ($96 million) a year. Whoever wants to introduce a law next week and advance it will have to make sure that there is strong public broadcasting and understand where the money is going to come from,” he said.The new committee will be made up of representatives from both the communication ministry — which Netanyhau heads in lieu of a permanent minister — and the finance ministry. It will present its conclusions to the two ministers within three weeks.Earlier Wednesday, Israel’s State Comptroller announced a probe into government conduct over the stalled reforms. Yosef Shapira instructed auditors to begin collecting materials on the issue following significant criticism over the way it has been handled, a statement released by the oversight body said.
Iran supreme leader takes aim at Clinton, Trump-Khamenei says candidates’ remarks in the debates ‘sufficient for the annihilation of the reputation’ of the US-By AP November 2, 2016, 7:58 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
TEHRAN — It seems everyone has an opinion about the US presidential election, including Iran’s supreme leader.Ayatollah Ali Khamenei criticized both Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump in a speech Wednesday marking the 1979 takeover of the US Embassy in Tehran.Khamenei said Clinton and Trump’s comments in the presidential debates “are sufficient for the annihilation of the reputation of the United States.”He didn’t name either candidate in his speech.He also described Americans as “liars, untrustworthy, deceitful and backstabbers” while saying he still opposed any direct negotiations with the US following the nuclear deal.While Clinton has defended the Iran nuclear deal, Trump has vowed to gut it if elected president.Iranian state television aired two of the three US presidential debates live.Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani in October described the two candidates as “bad and worse,” without specifying which was which.
