Obama out, PM pushes ahead with outpost legalization bill-Netanyahu confirms proposal off ice after change in White House; lawmakers looking at restoring clause that would prevent February 8 evacuation of Amona-By Raoul Wootliff January 29, 2017, 3:23 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu confirmed Sunday that a controversial bill to legalize some 4,000 housing units in the West Bank built on privately owned Palestinian land will be brought back to the Knesset this week.Requiring only final committee and plenary votes, the so-called Regulation Bill was put on ice in December until Barack Obama finished his term as US president.Now, with a new administration in the White House, the prime minister is not just moving ahead with the bill but also exploring restoring a contentious clause that could prevent the court-ordered evacuation of the Amona outpost, The Times of Israel has learned.Speaking at the weekly cabinet meeting at the Prime Minster’s Office, Netanyahu said the legislation would be brought to the Knesset on Monday.“The law is intended to resolve settlement in Judea and Samaria once and for all and to prevent the repeated attempts to damage the settlement project,” he said.The proposed Regulation Bill stipulates that settlement construction in the West Bank that had been carried out in good faith, without knowledge that the land was privately owned, would be recognized by the government, provided the settlers show some kind of state support in establishing themselves at the site — which in some cases could be as minimal as having access to public infrastructure.Under the bill, the government will be able to appropriate land for its own use if the owners are not known. If the owners are known, they will be eligible for either yearly damages amounting to 125 percent of the value of leasing the land, a larger financial package valued at 20 years’ worth of leasing the plots, or alternate plots.Netanyahu reportedly instructed coalition chairman David Bitan (Likud) on Saturday to bring the proposed legislation to its second and third readings in the plenum this week.A spokesperson for Bitan told The Times of Israel that both the committee meeting to authorize the final text of the bill and the plenary votes to pass it into law are likely to take place on Monday.But in a move that could spell complications for the bill, the prime minister has instructed his chief of staff Yoav Horowitz to explore the possibility of including a clause in the bill that would prevent the February 8 evacuation of Amona, according to coalition sources.First proposed by the Jewish Home party, the original proposal was intended to overturn a High Court of Justice verdict forbidding the expropriation of the privately owned Palestinian land on which Amona sits. The clause that would have circumvented that court ruling, however, was removed from the bill following intense opposition by the centrist Kulanu party.Both the Kulanu and Jewish Home parties declined to comment Monday on the possibility of new negotiations to include Amona.In a deal struck last month with the government, the outpost residents agreed to move peacefully to an adjacent plot. But the deal was complicated after a Palestinian claimed ownership of the nearby plot, prompting the High Court to stop all work on the site.The lack of a clear solution has once again raised the possibility of a forced evacuation of the Amona settlers and fears that violence could result. The residents of Amona last week renewed their protest against the government and vowed to resist the evacuation after the compromise appeared to fall through.Even without the Amona clause, Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit has warned that the Regulation Bill breaches both local and international law, and indicated that the High Court was likely to strike it down. Some officials, including Netanyahu himself, have also warned that the law could see Israeli officials brought before the International Criminal Court in The Hague.Times of Israel staff contributed to this report.
Netanyahu: Trump right about building wall, ‘great success’ in Israel-Writing in English on Twitter, PM says the recently built fence on Egypt border ‘stopped all illegal immigration’-By Times of Israel staff January 28, 2017, 6:48 pm
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday welcomed praise from Donald Trump for Israel’s security barrier, writing on Twitter that the US president “is right” about walls preventing illegal immigration.Referring to a second barrier, the recently built fence along Israel’s border with Egypt, the prime minister said the measure had been a “great success” in keeping out migrants, who mainly came from African nations.“President Trump is right. I built a wall along Israel’s southern border. It stopped all illegal immigration. Great success. Great idea,” Netanyahu wrote in English on Twitter, Trump’s preferred method of communication. The prime minister ended his tweet with emojis of the Israeli and American flags.In an interview with Fox News on Thursday, Trump appeared to be touting Israel’s West Bank security barrier as an example of a successful deterrent to unlawful entry into a country. Israel built the barrier — a combination of fence, concrete wall and sophisticated sensors — in response to the massive wave of deadly Palestinian terrorism that hit the country during the Second Intifada at the start of the millennium, with suicide bombers traveling the short distances into Israel to carry out murderous attacks, and it saw a dramatic fall in suicide bombings.President Trump is right. I built a wall along Israel's southern border. It stopped all illegal immigration. Great success. Great idea— Benjamin Netanyahu (@netanyahu) January 28, 2017-“The wall is necessary,” Trump said Thursday. “That’s not just politics, and yet it is good for the heart of the nation in a certain way, because people want protection and a wall protects. All you’ve got to do is ask Israel. They were having a total disaster coming across and they had a wall. It’s 99.9 percent stoppage.”The barrier along Israel’s Egyptian border is not a concrete wall akin to the one Trump is planning to build on the US-Mexico border, but rather a system of wire fencing and sensors.The president announced Thursday that he was going ahead with his plan for the border wall, which he maintained Mexico would pay for, despite the country’s insistence that it will not foot the bill. Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto nixed his planned January 31 meeting with Trump, after the latter tweeted that the meeting should be canceled if Mexico wouldn’t pay for the construction.Israel built the Egyptian border fence in 2012, all but blocking illegal migration, and began extending a fence along its eastern frontier with Jordan. Since 2012, the Israeli government has requested that the migrants in the country leave, giving cash grants to those who depart for their homes or some other African country. The government also has detained thousands of migrants since 2013 in Holot, a detention facility adjacent to a prison on the Egyptian border.According to Israel’s Population, Immigration and Border Authority, more than 60,000 African migrants crossed into Israel illegally from Egypt between 2006 and 2012. The migrants, mostly from Eritrea, say they’re seeking asylum from a brutal dictatorship. Some 45,000 remained in the country as of 2015.The government has viewed them as economic migrants looking for work and, with rare exceptions, has not recognized them as refugees.Trump on Friday also signed an executive order temporarily banning entry to the US for all nationals from seven Muslim countries — Syria, Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen — as part of sweeping measures that also suspend all refugee arrivals.
Trump defends Muslim ban: ‘World is a horrible mess’-US president rejects criticism of his executive order barring refugees and limiting Muslim entry, says America ‘needs strong borders’-By AFP January 29, 2017, 5:03 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
US President Donald Trump doubled down Sunday on his insistence that America needs tighter restrictions on immigration, as the world reacted with outrage to his decision to suspend refugee arrivals and impose tough new controls on travelers from seven Muslim countries.“Our country needs strong borders and extreme vetting, NOW,” Trump said in a tweet. “Look what is happening all over Europe and, indeed, the world – a horrible mess!”US airports and other sites across the United States, including the White House, were expected to see a second wave of protests Sunday against Trump’s temporary immigration ban, which a federal judge partially blocked by ordering authorities not to deport detained refugees and other travelers.The ruling also coincided with a wave of anger and concern abroad, including among US allies.Our country needs strong borders and extreme vetting, NOW. Look what is happening all over Europe and, indeed, the world – a horrible mess!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 29, 2017-European leaders were quick to condemn the ban.British Prime Minister Theresa May does “not agree” with the restrictions on immigration and will intervene if they affect UK nationals, Downing Street said.“Immigration policy in the United States is a matter for the government of the United States, just the same as immigration policy for this country should be set by our government,” a spokesman for May said.“But we do not agree with this kind of approach and it is not one we will be taking. If there is any impact on UK nationals then clearly we will make representations to the US government about that.”In Germany, Chancellor Angela Merkel condemned the restrictions on immigration, seeing them as unjustified, her spokesman said.“The chancellor regrets the entry ban imposed by the US government against refugees and nationals from certain countries,” Steffen Seibert said in a statement.“She is convinced that even in the necessarily resolute battle against terrorism it is not justified to place people from a certain origin or belief under general suspicion.”The German government “will now examine the consequences” of the ban for German citizens with dual nationality affected by the decision, he added.The US Department of Homeland Security said Sunday it would continue to enforce Trump’s sweeping executive order, which imposes tough controls on travelers from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. But it also said it would comply with court orders which have partially blocked the temporary ban.“The president’s executive orders remain in place — prohibited travel will remain prohibited, and the US government retains its right to revoke visas at any time if required for national security or public safety,” the agency said in a statement.“The president’s executive order affects a minor portion of international travelers, and is a first step towards reestablishing control over America’s borders and national security.”But the DHS also said it would “comply with judicial orders” — presumably including a federal judge’s ruling that ordered authorities not to deport refugees and other travelers detained at US borders.US District Judge Ann Donnelly granted the stay late Saturday, writing in her decision that sending those travelers back to their home countries following Trump’s order exposes them to “substantial and irreparable injury.”Meanwhile a British MP from May’s Conservative Party on Saturday revealed he would be barred from entering the US under Trump’s clampdown.Iraqi-born MP Nadhim Zahawi tweeted that he had had “confirmation that the order does apply to myself and my wife as we were both born in Iraq,” even though the pair have British passports.“A sad, sad day to feel like a second class citizen! Sad day for the USA,” he added.Zahawi, who has two sons at Princeton University, told BBC’s Andrew Marr show on Sunday that “I don’t think I’ve felt discriminated against since little school. It’s demeaning.”He called on Trump to reconsider the policy, saying it was “counterproductive” in the fight against terrorism but added he was “reassured by my prime minister’s statement on this” and that he understood her “cautious” response.Merkel’s condemnation came a day after she spoke by phone with the new US president, when they discussed a range of issues from relations with Russia to the situation in the Middle East and NATO.Statements released by both sides after the call made no mention of the immigration ban, but Seibert on Sunday said Merkel had reminded the US billionaire of his human rights responsibilities.“The Geneva Refugee Convention calls on the international community to take in war refugees on humanitarian grounds,” he said. “The chancellor stressed this policy in yesterday’s phone call with the US president.”
Muslim world in shock, outrage at Trump’s visa ban-Iranian FM says travel restrictions are ‘a great gift to extremists’-By Eric RANDOLPH January 29, 2017, 4:23 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
TEHRAN, Iran (AFP) — Families split, a father unable to reach his son’s wedding and officials warning of a “gift to extremists” — US President Donald Trump’s visa ban on seven Muslim countries has triggered shock and confusion among those affected.“There is mass hysteria among the Iranian-American community — that’s no exaggeration,” said Saam Borhani, an attorney in Los Angeles.He said clients were bombarding him with questions since Trump passed an executive order on Friday, suspending refugee arrivals and imposing tough controls on travelers from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.With more than one million Iranians living in the United States, the restrictions have already caused chaos for students, businessmen and families.“I have several clients impacted by the executive order — married couples whose spousal visas have been stopped, causing them to be separated. A father living in Iran who is unable to come to his son’s wedding in California,” said Borhani, who was himself born in the US to Iranian parents.US State Department figures show Iran accounted for around a quarter of the 31,804 visas granted to citizens from the seven countries last year.Among thousands facing difficulties, an Iraqi family was barred in Cairo from taking their connecting flight to New York on Saturday.“I had sold my house, my car, my furniture. I resigned from work and so did my wife. I took my children out of school,” Fuad Sharef, 51, told AFP.“Donald Trump destroyed my life. My family’s life. I used to think America was a state of institutions but it’s as though it’s a dictatorship,” he said.An Iranian woman blocked from boarding at Tehran airport on Sunday said she had waited 14 years for her green card.“Even during the hostage crisis at the US embassy (in 1980), the US government didn’t issue such an order. They say the US is the cradle of liberty. I don’t see freedom in that country,” she said, asking not to be named.-‘Gift to extremists’-The US embassy in Baghdad said on Facebook that dual nationals from the seven countries would be barred from entering the United States, excluding those with American passports.“Daeshi decision,” Baghdad resident Nibal Athed wrote in response to the post, using the Arabic acronym for the Islamic State group.He asked why the list excluded Afghanistan, Pakistan, Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which he described as the “biggest sponsors of terrorism.”Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said Sunday that Trump’s move “will be recorded in history as a great gift to extremists and their supporters.”“Collective discrimination aids terrorist recruitment by deepening fault-lines exploited by extremist demagogues to swell their ranks,” he tweeted.His ministry said earlier that it would reciprocate with a ban on Americans entering the country, though it will not apply to those who already have a valid visa.Meanwhile, Yemen’s Huthi rebels, who control the capital Sanaa, also criticised the ban, stating: “All attempts to classify Yemen and its citizens as a probable source for terrorism and extremism is illegal and illegitimate.”Yemenis made up the largest contingent — 12,998 — of immigrants to the US last year from the seven countries.-‘Trump’s wall reaches Iran’-The situation has been complicated by a US federal judge, who ordered authorities on Saturday to stop deporting refugees and other travelers stuck at US airports.“Uncertainty is the key word. Things are changing quickly and we’re trying to keep people updated,” said Borhani, the lawyer in LA.Getting a visa was already tough for Iranians, who had to travel to Turkey or the United Arab Emirates for the nearest US embassy.BBC Persian reported that 9,000 Iranian asylum seekers were now blocked in Turkey.After rising hopes under former president Barack Obama that relations between Iran and the US were improving, Trump has thrown everything back up in the air, Borhani said.“I don’t know what the future is going to hold, whether people here will be cut off permanently from their families in Iran. It’s very stressful.”Meanwhile, Iran’s leading daily Hamshahri was headlined: “The United States has cut its relations with the Iranian people.”Top reformist paper Shahrvand led with: “Trump’s wall has reached Iran.”
Iran vows to bar Americans in response to Trump’s ‘insulting’ ban-Tehran slams decision to block its citizens from US as ‘illegal, illogical and contrary to international rules’-By AFP January 28, 2017, 7:13 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
TEHRAN, Iran — Iran will ban Americans from entering the country in response to US President Donald Trump’s “insulting” order restricting arrivals from Iran and six other Muslim states, the foreign ministry said Saturday.“The Islamic Republic of Iran… has decided to respond in kind after the insulting decision of the United States concerning Iranian nationals,” the ministry said in a statement carried by state television.Trump on Friday signed a sweeping executive order to suspend refugee arrivals and impose tough controls on travelers from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.Iran’s foreign ministry called the decision “illegal, illogical and contrary to international rules.”It said its own ban on US nationals would continue until the American measure was lifted.It said it had ordered Iranian diplomatic missions to help Iranians who had been “prevented from returning to their homes and places of work and study” in the United States.Travel agents in Tehran said that foreign airlines had begun barring Iranians from US-bound flights. Two agencies told AFP they had been instructed by Etihad Airways, Emirates and Turkish Airlines not to sell US tickets or allow Iranians holding American visas to board US-bound flights.With more than a million Iranians living in the United States, many families are concerned about the implications of Trump’s visa ban.
Trump’s executive order on refugees, immigration: What does it mean?-No visas for Syrians; 4-month refugee halt; review of refugee vetting process; 90-day ban on entry from 7 Muslim countries with terrorism concerns-By Alicia A. Caldwell January 28, 2017, 4:33 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump signed an executive order Friday making major changes to America’s policies on refugees and immigration.A look at what Trump ordered:Syria-Trump’s order directs the State Department to stop issuing visas to Syrian nationals and halts the processing of Syrian refugees. That will remain in effect until Trump determines that enough security changes have been made to ensure that would-be terrorists can’t exploit weaknesses in the current vetting system.-Refugees-Trump ordered a four-month suspension to America’s broader refugee program. The suspension is intended to provide time to review how refugees are vetted before they are allowed to resettle in the United States.Trump’s order also cuts the number of refugees the United States plans to accept this budget year by more than half, to 50,000 people from around the world.During the last budget year the US accepted 84,995 refugees, including 12,587 people from Syria. Former president Barack Obama had set the current refugee limit at 110,000.The temporary halt to refugee processing does include exceptions for people claiming religious persecution, so long as their religion is a minority faith in their country. That could apply to Christians from Muslim-majority countries.-Extreme vetting-Trump’s order did not spell out specifically what additional steps he wants to see the Homeland Security and State departments to add to the country’s vetting system for refugees. Instead he directed officials to the review the refugee application and approval process to find any other security measures that can be added to prevent people who pose a threat from using the refugee program.During the Obama administration, vetting for refugees included in-person interviews overseas, where they provided biographical details about themselves, including their families, friendships, social or political activities, employment, phone numbers, email accounts and more. They also provided biometric information, including fingerprints. Syrians were subject to additional, classified controls that administration officials at the time declined to describe, and processing for that group routinely took years to complete.-Other immigration-Trump’s executive order suspends all immigration from countries with terrorism concerns for 90 days. The State Department said the three-month ban in the directive applied to Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen — all Muslim-majority nations.The order also calls for Homeland Security and State Department officials, along with the director of national intelligence, to review what information the government needs to fully vet would-be visitors and come up with a list of countries that don’t provide it. The order says the government will give countries 60 days to start providing the information or citizens from those countries will be barred from traveling to the United States.Barring any travel to the US from those seven countries, even temporarily, appears to at least partially fulfill a campaign promise Trump made to ban Muslims from coming to the United States until assurances can be made that visitors are properly vetted.
Knesset panel approves release of 2014 Gaza war report-With only small sections excised to protect classified information, comptroller prepares to publish findings said to censure Netanyahu and Ya’alon-By Times of Israel staff January 29, 2017, 5:23 pm
A Knesset subcommittee on Sunday unanimously approved releasing to the public parts of a biting comptroller’s report into how the security cabinet of top-level ministers handled itself during the war in Gaza in 2014.Last week, the subcommittee on classified information, part of the parliament’s State Control Committee, delayed making a final decision on the report due to security considerations that came up as the panel reviewed the materials intended for publication. After consulting with relevant officials, only small parts of the original report were deemed too sensitive for release.State Comptroller Yosef Shapira will make the final decision on when the document will be released, though he is expected to make it available to the public in the next two weeks.When it is eventually released, the document will give Israelis a rare look at the discussions of one of the most powerful and secretive state institutions, the powerful ten-member committee of ministers that oversees national security and foreign policy.The report of the ministers’ handling of the 2014 war, dubbed Operation Protective Edge, is said to show bitter infighting among members of the security cabinet, especially between then-defense minister Moshe Ya’alon and then-economy minister Naftali Bennett.Coalition officials, particularly those close to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, fought against releasing the report.The report finds that despite Netanyahu’s claims to the contrary, he and Ya’alon did not properly inform the security cabinet of the extent of the threat emanating from Hamas’s cross-border tunnels, Channel 2 reported in November.Some members of the security cabinet during Protective Edge have long complained that Netanyahu would not allow serious consultations and decisions in the forum. Part of the criticism, especially by Bennett, was already voiced during the war itself, during which he took to visiting frontline army units and discussing the war’s progress with officers in the field.Bennett, who has since moved on to the position of education minister, maintains that he became aware of the urgency of dealing with cross-border tunnels, an issue that became the war’s main goal in its final weeks, outside the confines of cabinet discussions, including during his conversations with IDF officers, and that the threat posed by the tunnels was not properly discussed or understood in the security cabinet’s meetings.Netanyahu and Ya’alon have denied Bennett’s claims, and criticized as “populist” his public excoriation of the army’s strategy while fighting was still underway in Gaza.Both Bennett and then-finance minister Yair Lapid, another critic of Netanyahu’s handling of the wartime cabinet, called last week for the Knesset to make the comptroller’s findings public.“We must not suppress the report on Protective Edge or use it to see heads roll,” but rather learn from it, Bennett said at the weekly Jewish Home faction meeting last Monday.“Only the disclosure of the non-confidential elements and the study of its particulars will allow us to move forward,” he said. “I was there; we can do better.”Lapid, who leads the opposition Yesh Atid party, said the government must make the report public for the sake of the bereaved Israeli families of soldiers killed in the 50-day conflict.“They need to release the report for the families of the fallen; they deserve to know what happened there. There’s no room for politics when you are talking about the security of soldiers and well-being of residents of Gaza-area communities,” he said.Lapid accused Netanyahu of attempting to bury the report for political reasons.“The Prime Minister’s Office fears this report, because serious failures emerge from it,” he said. “Because the report reveals that the account the public received [on the war] was not the true account.”Opposition leader Isaac Herzog joined the chorus. “The Israeli public, and especially families who lost loved ones, deserve to know how their leaders acted when they sent their sons into battle, and how discussions on new strategic threats, chief among them the tunnels, were carried out,” he said at the start of the weekly meeting of his Zionist Union faction Monday.
