Ministers back bill allowing rabbinic courts to judge monetary cases-Legislation that would permit state-run rabbinic authorities to adjudicate financial matters passes first hurdle-By Times of Israel staff February 5, 2017, 10:44 pm
State-run rabbinic courts may soon be able to judge monetary cases, according to proposed legislation which cleared its first Knesset hurdle on Sunday.The Ministerial Committee for Legislation approved the bill, proposed by MK Moshe Gafni (United Torah Judaism), which would allow courts to rule in financial disputes if agreed to by both parties.Currently the state-run rabbinic courts have jurisdiction over issues of Jewish identity and conversion, marriage and divorce, including financial settlement, and kashrut supervision. The courts rule in accordance with Jewish law.The measure still must pass through three readings in the Knesset before becoming law, but Sunday’s vote means it will enjoy coalition support as it moves through the stages of legislation.A spokesperson for the rabbinical courts told the ultra-Orthodox news site Kikar Hashabat that it was a “dramatic and historic move.”Gafni told the site that “the Supreme Court ruled several years ago that the state-run courts could only rule on personal matters and were not permitted to decide on monetary cases. We tried to pass this law for many years.”Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi David Lau also hailed the ministerial committee’s decision. “The proposed legislation that was approved today by the Committee for Legislation is right and proper. Many Jews want to have a judgment based on Torah and it doesn’t make sense that it is withheld from them,” he said.There are many private rabbinic courts in Israel that arbitrate on monetary matters provided both parties agree to accept the final ruling.
5,000 rally in Ofra to protest planned evacuation of 9 homes-Protest comes shortly after High Court delays the demolition of the West Bank settlement buildings until March 5-By Times of Israel staff February 5, 2017, 10:23 pm
Some 5,000 protesters gathered in the West Bank settlement of Ofra on Sunday to demonstrate against the planned evacuation of nine homes built without permits on private Palestinian land.The demonstration in the northern West Bank settlement convened shortly after the High Court handed down a decision to delay the home demolitions by one month.Among the speakers at the rally was Rabbi Haim Druckman, the current head of the Bnei Akiva youth movement. “We will return to Amona,” the former National Religious Party MK told the crowd, referring to the nearby illegal outpost that was evacuated by Israeli forces in a separate case last week. “We will continue to settle the Land of Israel…We are not thieves,” he said.The protest came a day after Education Minister Naftali Bennett and Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked faced criticism and shouts of “shame” from Ofra locals who blamed the Jewish Home party politicians for failing to prevent the evacuation of Amona.“We elected you in order to fight, not to surrender to [Prime Minister] Bibi [Netanyahu],” residents shouted at the ministers, who were in Ofra to discuss the so-called Regulation Bill with the town’s leaders.“You should be ashamed,” some shouted as Bennett and Shaked left the meeting.In February 2015, the court ruled that the Ofra buildings had to be demolished, as they were found to have been built without permits on privately owned Palestinian land.The deadline for the order was set for February 8, 2017.On January 25, the residents requested a three-month extension for the court order. That was denied on Sunday in favor of a one-month delay, in order to allow security forces time to prepare, the court said.The nine buildings will now have to be demolished by March 5.High Court of Justice President Miriam Naor said she hoped the eventual evacuation and demolition of the nine Ofra homes would be carried out “in a peaceful way.”Shaked and Bennett’s Jewish Home party were seeking to pass the so-called Regulation Bill, which would legalize several thousand homes built on privately owned Palestinian land, into law on Monday, over the objections of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.Judah Ari Gross contributed to this report.
Jewish Home doubles down on vow to pass outpost bill Monday-Defying Netanyahu, pro-settlement party says controversial legislation recognizing building on private Palestinian land will be brought to plenum for final votes-By Tamar Pileggi February 5, 2017, 9:25 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
The pro-settlement Jewish Home party on Sunday doubled down on its insistence that the controversial outpost legalization bill would be brought Monday for its final votes in the Knesset plenum.The so-called Regulation Bill seeks to legalize several thousand West Bank settlement homes built illegally on private Palestinian property.“Half a million residents of Samaria, Judea and the Jordan Valley deserve normal lives just like residents of Kfar Saba and Tel Aviv. Fifty years late, the Regulation Bill will come up tomorrow and pass in the Knesset in order to give them this normalcy,” said a statement from the Jewish Home party.“We are certain that all members of the coalition will lend their support to make that happen,” the party said.The statement was responding to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who earlier on Sunday rejected pressure from Jewish Home members to hold the bill’s second and third Knesset readings, the final votes before becoming law, on Monday as scheduled.According to media reports, Netanyahu was seeking to delay the final votes on the bill until after he meets with new US President Donald Trump on February 15.“I’m always hearing fake ultimatums,” Netanyahu said of Jewish Home’s pressure to push the bill Monday, as he boarded a plane to London to meeting with British Prime Minister Theresa May. Such ultimatums, he added dismissively, “don’t excite me.”The Regulation Bill offer financial compensation to the Palestinian landowners and staveg off any further demolitions such as the one carried out against the illegal Amona outpost last week.While the Trump administration has mostly declined to condemn settlement building, the president has reportedly asked Netanyahu not to surprise him with unilateral moves in the West Bank and the issue is expected to be high on the agenda when the two meet in the White House on February 15.On Thursday, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said new settlements “may not be helpful,” after Netanyahu announced he would authorize a new settlement to replace Amona, the first in the West Bank in some 25 years.In recent months, the Regulation Bill has been pushed by right-wing lawmakers, in part to offset the political fallout from the Amona evacuation.If it passes its second and third readings, the legislation would legalize several thousand settlement homes that were unknowingly built on privately owned Palestinian land.The bill would freeze demolition proceedings against the homes. For any homes found to have been built in good faith – that is, owners did not know the house was built on privately owned land before building there – the state would be required to seize the property from its Palestinian owners in exchange for compensation valued at slightly more than the land’s market value, as determined by an Israeli government committee established for that purpose.The left-wing NGO Peace Now has estimated some 4,000 homes would be affected by the bill, while right-wing counterpart Regavim has put the number at about half that figure.Netanyahu has expressed support for the bill, saying it would protect the settlement movement from “harassment” by legalizing the most common reason that lawsuits are brought against settlements.The bill has faced strident opposition, including from Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit, who has warned that it marks the first time Israeli legislation explicitly affirms government support for settlements, and would openly curtail property rights of Palestinians in the West Bank in a way that contravenes the protections granted to occupied populations under the Fourth Geneva Convention.The legislation — shelved late last year after Netanyahu reportedly sought to avoid any additional fights with the Obama administration before its end on January 20 — returned to the Knesset agenda last Sunday. The final draft of the bill outlines the procedures for legalizing unauthorized construction on private Palestinian land and compensating the landowners. It also immediately freezes administrative proceedings in 16 West Bank settlements for a period of 12 months.Marissa Newman and Raoul Wootliff contributed to this report.
PM said looking to delay outpost bill vote until after Trump meet-Netanyahu says he won’t be held to ultimatums from settler flank of coalition, after reports he wants to coordinate with new US administration-By Times of Israel staff February 5, 2017, 6:21 pm
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly sought to defer a Knesset vote on a controversial bill allowing Israel to appropriate West Bank land, requesting it be delayed until after a meeting next week with US President Donald Trump.The Regulation Bill had been slated to go for its final readings on Monday evening, but Netanyahu reportedly told coalition heads Sunday night he wanted to talk it through with the new US administration first.“I would like to coordinate the issue with the Trump administration,” he told coalition party leaders on Sunday according to Army Radio.Netanyahu’s comments to the coalition leaders came hours after he told his own Likud party ministers the bill would come up for its second and third readings, the final votes before becoming law, on Monday as scheduled.But members of Netanyahu’s ruling coalition’s far right, especially ministers from the Jewish Home party, are vowing to move ahead with the bill’s Monday vote.Speaking to reporters as he boarded a plane to London ahead of meetings Monday with British Prime Minister Theresa May, Netanyahu brushed off “fake ultimatums” and pinned various rumors about the bill’s status on “false briefings to the media.”The Regulation Bill would see several thousand homes in Israeli settlements in the West Bank built illegally on privately owned Palestinian property, offering financial compensation to the landowners and staving off any further demolitions such as the one carried out against the illegal Amona outpost last week.While the Trump administration has mostly declined to condemn settlement building, the president has reportedly asked Netanyahu not to surprise him with unilateral moves in the West Bank and the issue is expected to be high on the agenda when the two meet in the White House on February 15.On Thursday, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said new settlements “may not be helpful,” after Netanyahu announced he would authorize a new settlement to replace Amona, the first in the West Bank in some 25 years.In recent months, the Regulation Bill has been pushed by right-wing lawmakers in recent months in part to offset the political fallout from the Amona evacuation.If it passes its second and third readings, the legislation would legalize several thousand settlement homes that were unknowingly built on privately owned Palestinian land.The bill would freeze demolition proceedings against the homes.

To weaken those protections, Mandelblit has warned, could expose Israeli officials to international sanction at the International Criminal Court in The Hague.The Regulation Bill was narrowly approved by a vote of seven to six in a joint meeting of the Knesset’s Law Committee and Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee last week.The legislation — shelved late last year after Netanyahu reportedly sought to avoid any additional fights with the Obama administration before its end on January 20 — returned to the Knesset agenda last Sunday.The final draft of the bill outlines the procedures for legalizing unauthorized construction on private Palestinian land and compensating the landowners. It also immediately freezes administrative proceedings in 16 West Bank settlements for a period of 12 months.The bill stipulates that settlement construction in the West Bank that was 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. This support could in some cases be as minimal as having access to public infrastructure.Under the terms of the bill, the government will be able to appropriate land for its own use if the owners are unknown. 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.Marissa Newman and Raoul Wootliff contributed to this report.
After massacre, Canadian Jews form ‘rings of peace’ around mosques-Toronto’s Rabbi Yael Splansky sets interfaith solidarity initiative in motion following Quebec shooting that killed six-By Renee Ghert-Zand February 5, 2017, 10:09 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
Hundreds of Jews and other Canadians formed “rings of peace” around mosques across Canada on Friday in a show of interfaith solidarity with Muslims following a deadly shooting attack during prayers at a Quebec City mosque January 29.Alexandre Bissonnette, a 27-year-old French Canadian student known for far-right nationalist views, has been charged with six counts of first-degree murder and five counts of attempted murder for the rampage that left six dead and 19 wounded.The human rings took place at the initiative of Yael Splansky, the senior rabbi at Toronto’s Holy Blossom Temple.After Splansky floated the idea by her pan-denominational colleagues and gained support from Toronto Board of Rabbis, many of the city’s synagogues worked together to rally people to come out midday on Friday to encircle seven mosques throughout the Greater Toronto Area. The mosques were all receptive to the gesture, and in some cases local churches partnered in the interfaith effort.Rings of peace and solidarity visits to mosques also took place on Friday in other Canadian cities, including Ottawa, Edmonton, Montreal, Halifax and St. John’s.“Their pain is our pain too,” Rabbi Jarrod Grover told Inside Toronto. On Friday Grover joined the demonstration at the Islamic Foundation of Toronto.“These people are our friends. You attack them, you attack all of us. We’re going to stand in solidarity with them,” said Grover of Beth Tikvah Synagogue.Splansky told The Times of Israel she came up with the idea after sending a condolence letter to leaders of the Quebec Islamic Cultural Centre, the Muslim congregation that was targeted.“Words are just words. But then I suddenly remembered having read about how two years ago Muslims formed a ring of peace around a synagogue in Oslo, Norway after murderous attacks against Jews in Paris and Copenhagen. I thought that could be something we could do here — only in reverse, with Jews showing solidarity with Muslims,” Splansky said.-Words are just words’-Rabbi Adam Cutler of Beth Tzedec Congregation also joined a peace ring at the Islamic Foundation of Toronto. He told Inside Toronto that the Quebec City attack was “an atrocity.”“It is absolutely a Jewish value to love your neighbor, to fight against intolerance and hate, and a way to do that is to stand shoulder to shoulder with communities who are feeling at risk and who are feeling fearful,” said Cutler.Splansky and some 250 others circled the Imdadul Islamic Centre while the congregation was inside for the midday Jum’ah prayer. Holy Blossom had an existing relationship with the mosque, with the temple’s bar and bat mitzvah class having just visited the previous Monday as part of its world religions studies.“They had kosher pizza waiting for the kids. It was so sweet of them,” Splansky said.When the prayer service ended, the ring broke and everyone came to the front of the mosque to greet the exiting congregants with songs of peace, including Israeli singer-songwriter Mosh Ben Ari’s “Od Yavo Shalom Aleinu,” which includes the Arabic word for peace, “Salaam.”“Some of the congregants were very startled and moved. Some had tears in their eyes. The younger ones took out their phones and filmed what was happening so they could have evidence,” Splansky said.It was the first time that not only a rabbi had been accorded this honor in this particular mosque, but also a woman“One of the congregation’s leaders, a man named Mohammed, told me he was impressed to see people of all ages had come out — from old people with canes to babies in strollers. Parents had taken kids out of school for this,” the rabbi said.Imam Yusuf Badat of the Islamic Foundation of Toronto welcomed the support from his Jewish “brothers and sisters.”“They are standing with us,” Badat told Inside Toronto.“It makes me proud as a Canadian, as a Muslim, as a human being that we have such wonderful souls within our communities that understand and are there to give their helping hand,” said Badat.Several of the Muslim congregations invited rabbis to enter the mosques and speak. Splansky herself was invited into Imdadul Islamic Centre during the prayer service to address the worshipers. It was the first time that not only a rabbi had been accorded this honor in this particular mosque, but also a woman.“It was totally spontaneous. They just grabbed me out of the ring and asked me to come in and speak. I expressed our condolences and told them they are not alone, that we stand with them. We are blessed to live in a country that is a sanctuary for religious freedom, and we must never be afraid to enter a house of God,” Splansky said.The rabbi also directly alluded to those standing outside the mosque in the ring of peace by highlighting the importance of putting words and prayer into action. She emphasized that the ring was not a political protest, but rather what she called “prayer in motion.”According to Splansky, her congregants and other Canadian Jews were grateful for the opportunity for this outlet for their pent up feelings about the Quebec attack, as well political events south of the border.“We know what we stand for and what we don’t. And we are fortunate and grateful that our work is supported by our government,” she said.

PM: Israel, US, UK must form united front to combat Iran ‘aggression’-Boarding plane to meet British PM, Netanyahu slams Tehran’s ‘unusual hutzpah,’ says it’s testing new administrations in London, Washington-By Times of Israel staff and Raphael Ahren February 5, 2017, 5:49 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday said the United States, United Kingdom, and Israel must form a united front to combat Iran’s “extraordinary aggression.”Iran is “trying to test the boundaries” of new administrations in Washington and London “with extraordinary aggression, with unusual hutzpah and antagonism,” Netanyahu told reporters as he boarded a plane to London ahead of meetings Monday with British Prime Minister Theresa May.Late last month, Iran tested intercontinental ballistic missiles in an apparent breach of a United Nations Security Council resolution, prompting angry responses from Jerusalem and Washington.“There’s a new administration in Washington, a new government in Britain. I intend to speak with both of them on strengthening ties, both between each one and Israel, and trilaterally,” Netanyahu affirmed. “That’s what I will do next week in Washington, and that’s what I’m doing tomorrow in London.”“I think the most important thing at the moment is that countries like the United States, with its leadership, and Britain and Israel, stand united against Iran’s aggression and set clear boundaries,” he said.US President Donald Trump, echoing Netanyahu, has harshly criticized the nuclear deal Iran struck with six world powers, and last week threatened the regime over its illicit missile tests. The regime was “playing with fire,” the US president said, vowing to react to Iranian saber-rattling more aggressively than his predecessor, Barack Obama.Netanyahu was slated to meet May and British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson in London. He is scheduled for his first summit with Trump in Washington on February 15.The prime minister will return to Israel after meeting with Johnson late Monday.The UK, which is currently in the process of leaving the European Union, is seeking to forge new international alliances, most notably with the US. But London has in recent weeks also courted Jerusalem and took a pro-Israel line by refusing to sign the closing document at the Paris conference on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in January.However, as opposed to Israel and the US, Great Britain has full diplomatic relations with Iran, including a functioning embassy in Tehran. The Foreign Office has so far remained mum over Iran’s ballistic missiles test launches. Thus, it remains to be seen whether Netanyahu will succeed in getting the UK to align with the Israel-American anti-Iran position.Earlier on Sunday, Netanyahu said that Israel is gearing up for “a significant diplomatic period,” a likely reference to a slew of upcoming trips abroad. Next week, he is scheduled to meet Trump at the White House, and two days after his return from Washington on February 17, will embark on a weeklong trip to Singapore and Australia.Before his departure from Ben Gurion Airport, Netanyahu also spoke of the need to delay the final votes on the so-called Regulation Bill, which would legalize some 4,000 West Bank housing units built on private Palestinian land. While the votes were originally scheduled for Monday, the prime minister reportedly told coalition party leaders Sunday that he wants to delay in order to coordinate with the new US administration before passing the contentious bill into law.When asked about potential rebellion from his coalition partners who are reluctant to delay the vote, Netanyahu replied, “I’m always hearing fake ultimatums. I’m not excited by [people giving] false briefings to the media.”“I’m busy running the country and as I run the country I think about our overarching interest, and all my actions are directed toward it,” the prime minister said.The bill, slammed by large parts of the Israeli left and center-right, as well as Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit, would legalize several thousand homes in Israeli settlements in the West Bank built illegally, offering financial compensation to the Palestinian landowners and staving off any further demolitions such as the one carried out against the illegal Amona outpost last week. The High Court of Justice was predicted to torpedo the legislation.
Pence warns Iran: Don’t test Trump’s resolve with ‘hostile’ action-After US imposes new sanctions, VP says Iran ‘would do well to realize there’s a new president in the Oval Office’-By Eric Cortellessa February 5, 2017, 6:57 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
WASHINGTON — US Vice President Mike Pence cautioned Iran this weekend to “think twice” before undertaking any “hostile and belligerent actions,” doubling down on President Donald Trump’s warning that military action remains on the table.The Trump administration imposed fresh sanctions Friday on multiple Iranian entities and individuals after Iran test-launched a medium-range ballistic missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead on January 29.Asked in an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopolous conducted Saturday but aired Sunday morning what exactly it means to put Iran “on notice,” as the White House has said, Pence replied “it means we’re watching.”“Iran would do well to look at the calendar and realize there’s a new president in the Oval Office and Iran would do well not to test the resolve of this new president,” he added.The vice president also reiterated Trump’s statement this week that “nothing is off the table” regarding the Iranian regime, borrowing a phrase oft-used by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to suggest military action is an option to thwart Iran from developing a nuclear weapon or carrying out nefarious designs in the region.“The president said everything is on the table,” Pence said.The new sanctions came after US National Security Adviser Michael Flynn announced on Wednesday that the administration was putting Iran “on notice” for its latest activities. Trump later tweeted that “Iran is playing with fire.”In his statement, Flynn cited UN Security Council Resolution 2231, which calls upon Iran “not to undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles designed to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using such ballistic missile technology.”He also castigated a recent episode in which Iran-backed Houthi rebels attacked a Saudi naval ship in the Red Sea.In another act of defiance, Iran held a massive missile drill Saturday, the semi-official Fars News Agency reported. “If the enemy makes a mistake, our missiles will land on them,” General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, who oversaw the exercise, was quoted as saying by the Revolutionary Guards’ official website.Pence also spoke to the fate of the Iran nuclear deal that former president Barack Obama forged with Iran and world powers in July 2015, which Trump repeatedly called “disastrous” and “one of the dumbest deals” ever made on the campaign trail.As a candidate, he often gave conflicting signals as to how he would handle the Iranian threat, saying both that he sought to dismantle the landmark accord and implement it meticulously.Since winning the election, however, he and his advisers have suggested they would not withdraw from the pact. The nuclear accord is expected to be at the heart of talks between Trump and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in their February 15 meeting in Washington.On a call with Saudi Arabia’s King Salman last week, Trump pledged to “rigorously enforc[e] the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action,” using the deal’s official name, according to a White House readout of the conversation.But on Sunday, Pence implied Trump had not yet made a decision. “We’re evaluating that as we speak,” he said, when asked if they would uphold the agreement.Stephanopolous noted that Trump’s Secretary of Defense James Mattis and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson have said the deal should not be unilaterally abrogated.“I think the president will make that decision in the days ahead, and he’ll listen to all of his advisers,” Pence responded. “But make no mistake about it. The resolve of this president is such that Iran would do well to think twice about their continued hostile and belligerent actions.”
