Austrian chancellor: EU must contribute more to Mideast peace-In meeting with Netanyahu, Christian Kern says Israel is a role model and he looks forward to increased cooperation-By Times of Israel staff April 25, 2017, 6:35 pm
Austrian Chancellor Christian Kern said on Tuesday that the European Union should be doing more to advance peace between Israel and the Palestinians.At a joint press conference with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Kern said that the EU could use its leverage to help the two sides reach a deal.“Definitely the union is punching below its weight here in the region because we are one of the biggest donators in Palestine,” he said, speaking in English. “Seventy percent of the exports of the region go to Europe, and I think it makes a lot of sense to contribute more to a peaceful and prosper[ous] development.”The chancellor said that the entire world sees Israel as a role model and that Austria wants to increase ties between the two countries.“You call yourself a startup nation and it’s definitely not exaggerated. The whole world is looking at you as a role model, so I’m looking very much forward to increasing our cooperation and bringing it to new levels,” he said.Kern, who attended a Holocaust Remembrance Day event on Monday, praised the achievements of Israel, telling the prime minister that he saw a “direct line” between the Holocaust and the tech powerhouse that Israel has become.“What was also very impressive was when I was visiting Yad Vashem and listening to the ceremony,” he said. “You get a better understanding of why you are such a strong economic nation as well, because I think there is a direct line — that at least it’s my interpretation — between what happened in the Holocaust and your strength today.”Netanyahu spoke of the symbolism of an Austrian chancellor attending Holocaust Remembrance Day in Israel, and praised Kern’s country for its “consistent position against Holocaust denial, against anti-Semitism.”He also praised Kern personally for continuing in the spirit of his mother’s actions during the Holocaust.“Your mother helped bring food to Jews hiding in Vienna,” the prime minister said, “and you honor her legacy.”Netanyahu also told the chancellor that Israel and Austria would work together toward peace.“We can achieve more together than separately, and there’s a lot to achieve to promise a future of prosperity and security and peace for our peoples,” he said.
Abbas may cut off cash to Gaza, marking break with West Bank-Sources say Palestinian Authority leader is planning to give Hamas an ultimatum: Accept our rule or we’ll stop paying your bills-By Avi Issacharoff April 25, 2017, 2:55 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is set to issue a dramatic ultimatum to the Gaza Strip’s terrorist Hamas rulers, demanding that they either hand over governance of the area or face a funding freeze, sources close to the Palestinian leader said.Should the PA stop all payments to the Gaza Strip it would mark a complete break between the West Bank, which Abbas controls, and the coastal enclave, which is ruled by Hamas. Needless to say, such an ultimatum would significantly ramp up tensions between Abbas’s Fatah party and Hamas.Hamas seized power in Gaza from the PA in a violent coup in 2007. Israel and Egypt then initiated a blockade officially geared toward preventing the terror group, avowedly committed to the destruction of Israel, from importing weaponry and materiel into Gaza.While a PA threat to sever ties with Gaza might sound not sound like a major shift — the PA doesn’t exercise control of the coastal enclave – for Palestinians, the move would have dramatic and far-reaching implications.First, it would constitute official recognition of the split between Gaza and the West Bank, a divide that over the past decade Fatah and Hamas refused to acknowledge.Further, a decision by the PA to stop paying Gaza’s bills, including for power and water, would be very noticeable on the practical level. For one thing, the acute energy crisis in Gaza would get much worse. Until recently, at least, the PA paid for the fuel for Gaza’s power station, which ground to a halt last week after running out of oil, leaving the Strip’s two million residents without power for most hours of the day.Ramallah also pays for the medical treatments that Palestinians from Gaza sometimes qualify for in Israeli hospitals, such as chemotherapy and complex surgeries.Should the PA cut off funding, its not clear how Hamas could react. The group could try and cover the bills itself, or try to bring international and Arab pressure on the PA and Israel by painting them as imposing a terrible siege on Gaza, leading to thousands starving.Hamas could also instigate a confrontation with Israel to extract itself from mounting internal pressure over the Strip’s economy, as it did in 2014.Among Fatah’s leadership there is a consensus supporting the measure. More than one senior official told The Times of Israel that there is no sense in maintaining the current situation.“This time, Abbas is serious” one official said on condition of anonymity. “He doesn’t plan to drag things out and is unwilling to allow Hamas to continue to play games and drag its feet. It can either hand over authority in Gaza to us, or take responsibility and start to pay.”Officials said that while Hamas is collecting tens of millions of dollars in taxes from the residents of Gaza, it is in no hurry to help the PA pay to run the Strip.“It’s incomprehensible,” one official said. “In the past 10 years Hamas’s coffers have been enriched by more than a billion dollars in taxes, and yet they never shared the [financial] burden of the Strip. They invested most of it in their military wing.”Seeking to put pressure on Hamas, Abbas has recently slashed the salaries of thousands of former civil servants in Gaza and imposed a tax on fuel shipments to Hamas-ruled Gaza.Senior Hamas official Khalil al-Hayya told reporters on April 18 that Abbas’ threat to take “unprecedented steps” to restore political unity to the Palestinian territory would not succeed.“Gaza can’t be threatened or terrified and Hamas doesn’t accept threats,” he said.Al-Hayya called on Abbas to reverse the measures.AP contributed to this report.
Netanyahu boycotts German FM over meeting with leftist NGO-Sigmar Gabriel rejects PM’s demand he snub Breaking the Silence, but says episode won’t harm Germany’s ‘special relationship with Israel’-By Raphael Ahren April 25, 2017, 4:26 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivered a rare snub to Germany Tuesday, canceling his scheduled meeting with Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel over the visitor’s plan to meet with left-wing human rights groups, his office said.Despite protestations from the German minister that the prime minister’s cancellation of the meeting would not affect ties, Netanyahu’s reaction was unusually harsh given Israel’s close diplomatic and military relationship to Germany.“Prime Minister Netanyahu’s policy is not to meet foreign visitors who on diplomatic trips to Israel meet with groups that slander IDF soldiers as war criminals,” his office said in a statement. “Diplomats are welcome to meet with representatives of civil society but Prime Minister Netanyahu will not meet with those who lend legitimacy to organizations that call for the criminalization of Israeli soldiers.”“Imagine if foreign diplomats visiting the United States or Britain met with NGOs that call American or British soldiers war criminals. Leaders of those countries would surely not accept this,” the statement said, adding that “Our relations with Germany are very important and they will not be affected by this.”On Monday, Netanyahu’s office said he would not receive the German dignitary as planned if he went ahead with his Tuesday meeting with Breaking the Silence, an Israeli group that publishes anonymous testimonies of former Israeli combat soldiers who report on human rights violations against Palestinians.The cancellation came hours after Gabriel rejected the ultimatum.After the cancellation, Gabriel told reporters this would not affect Germany’s relationship with Israel, but said the move was “a surprise” as German visitors had met with left-wing NGOs in the past and that meeting them was a vital part of his trip to the country.“Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and I actually have a very open relations. Therefore I was surprised that the visit was canceled,” he said.“I regret this a lot, but I want to state openly that we must not become a tool of Israeli domestic policy,” he said, adding that the cancellation was not a “catastrophe.”“If you come here you have to know that there can be surprises. But my relationship with Israel, and Germany’s relationship to Israel will not be changed by this in any way.”However, Gabriel said that if Netanyahu came to Germany and met with NGOs critical of the government — they exist, he said — and we would cut the visit short, “they would think we’re crazy.”“And therefore we have to let the whole thing cool down. It’s not nice what happened here… and he’s also foreign minister, and foreign ministers should speak with each other in any situation, but it’s not like this is going to affect the bilateral relation in an essential way.”As the announcement came, Gabriel was meeting with President Reuven Rivlin in Jerusalem, where he vowed he would not allow the incident to affect relations between Germany and Israel.“We are committed to the friendship, partnership, and special relationship with Israel, and nothing will change that,” Gabriel said.The Haaretz daily reported that Netanyahu tried to call Gabriel after canceling the meeting to explain his decision, but the German minister refused to take his call.Rivlin raised the controversy regarding Breaking the Silence, saying that as a democratic state Israel had no problem with criticism, but it had to be based in reality. “Our army is the most moral army in the world,” the president said, adding that “it is an army made up of all our children. We know how to maintain our army as the most moral in the world, and we will continue to do so.”Gabriel came to Israel a day ahead of his meetings in order to be here while the Jewish state marked Holocaust Remembrance Day.“We came here yesterday on a very special day for Israel and Germany,” Gabriel said. “It reminds us of the special relationship and special responsibility, not just today but in the future, to a secure and safe Israel, to support the country of those who survived the Holocaust. As a society, for us it is necessary to remember there should always be a special support for the Jewish community.“Yesterday I visited Yad Vashem, which is always very special for me. My father was till his last day a committed Nazi, and in my daughter’s family there are victims of the Holocaust. So you will find in my family the deniers of Auschwitz and the victims of Auschwitz,” he said.Netanyahu won support for his stance from other government ministers.“We support the prime minister in his decision regarding the visit of the German foreign minister,” Education Minister Naftali Bennett, the leader of the Jewish Home party, wrote on Twitter. “Breaking the Silence is not an anti-Netanyahu organization, it is an anti-IDF one.”Chiming in, Interior Minister Aryeh Deri, who heads the Shas party, said he gives Netanyahu his “full support.”“Foreign countries must not intervene in Israel’s internal matters,” he wrote on Twitter.Such disputes have arisen in the past between visiting foreign officials and Israel’s government.In February, Israel reprimanded the Belgian ambassador after the country’s prime minister, Charles Michel, met with Breaking The Silence and B’Tselem, another left-wing group, during a visit to Israel, despite a direct request from Netanyahu.However, there was no public rebuke from the government when British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson met with anti-settlement NGO Peace Now during a visit in March.
Israel pauses to remember 6 million murdered in Holocaust-Two-minute siren brings country to a standstill amid memorial ceremonies marking annual remembrance day-By Times of Israel staff April 24, 2017, 10:13 am
Israelis across the country paused for two minutes Monday morning in memory of the six million Jews who were murdered in Europe under Nazi rule as a siren pierced the clear blue sky in an annual marking of Holocaust Remembrance Day.The 10 a.m. siren was to be followed by ceremonies at schools, memorials and elsewhere in honor of those who lost their lives, as well as Shoah survivors.The country’s central commemoration event got underway immediately after the siren at the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial and museum in Jerusalem, where dignitaries will lay wreaths next to a monument commemorating the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of 1943.Among those taking part in the wreath-laying are President Reuven Rivlin, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Knesset speaker Yuli Edelstein.The theme of this year’s commemoration is “Restoring Their Identities: The Fate of the Individual During the Holocaust,” Yad Vashem said ahead of Remembrance Day.At 11 a.m. the Knesset was scheduled to mark the day with a ceremony titled “Unto Every Person There is a Name,” in which lawmakers recite names of victims of the Nazis for nearly two hours.The ceremony’s name comes from a famous poem by the Israeli poet Zelda Schneersohn Mishkovsky (commonly referred to by her first name alone). The musical version, which is often played at memorial ceremonies, repeats, “Unto every person there is a name given by…their mother and father,” “their sins,” “their loves,” and “their death.”Decades after the liberation of the Nazi camps, the annual Holocaust Remembrance Day continues to be marked with solemnity in Israel, with restaurants, stores and entertainment centers closed and Holocaust-themed movies and documentaries broadcast on TV and radio.Most schools and many preschools hold official assemblies where students honor the dead and hear stories from survivors.At 1:30 p.m. local time, thousands of people are expected to take part in the March of the Living event in Poland, walking along the three kilometers (1.8 miles) of railway tracks between the sites of the Auschwitz and Birkenau camps.Chief Justice Miriam Naor and Education Minister Naftali Bennett will accompany a delegation of Israeli officials and Jewish students from around the world at the annual march.The Holocaust Remembrance Day ceremonies began at Yad Vashem on Sunday evening, with six survivors lighting beacons — one for every million Jews slain. Moshe Ha-Elion, Moshe Jakubowitz, Jeannine Sebbane-Bouhanna, Moshe Porat, Max Privler and Elka Abramovitz were chosen to light the symbolic torches this year.During the ceremony, Rivlin said that Holocaust survivors had bequeathed a solemn message to the world that people must preserve their humanity, even in the face of the greatest horrors.The president said Holocaust remembrance and the lessons to be learned from the genocide of the Jewish people are founded on three central pillars: self-defense, a shared destiny, and human rights.“Man is beloved, every man, created in God’s image. This is a sacred obligation that the Jewish people cannot and does not wish to evade. At all times. In every situation. So too, we cannot remain silent in face of the horrors being committed far away from us, and certainly those happening just across the border,” he noted, referring to the Syrian civil war that is estimated to have cost over 300,000 lives. “Maintaining one’s humanity: this is the immense courage bequeathed to us by the victims – and by you, the survivors of the Shoah.”Rivlin’s words stood in stark contrast to Netanyahu’s, whose main thrust was to blame the Allies’ failure to bomb the Nazi concentration camps from 1942, which he said cost the lives of four million Jews and millions of others.Citing recently released UN documents that show the Allies were aware of the scale of the Holocaust in 1942, some two years earlier than previously assumed, Netanyahu said this new research assumed “a terrible significance.”“If the powers in 1942 had acted against the death camps — and all that was needed was repeated bombing of the camps — had they acted then, they could have saved 4 million Jews and millions of other people.”“The powers knew, and they did not act,” he told the audience at the national ceremony at Yad Vashem.In a bleak address, the Israeli prime minister said that the Holocaust was enabled by three factors: the vast hatred of the Jews, global indifference to the horrors, and “the terrible weakness of our people in the Diaspora.”
Spain nabs 9 terror suspects, probes links to Brussels, Paris attacks-Police say four of the men detained during raids in the Catalonia region are members of Islamic State-By Agencies April 25, 2017, 4:44 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
Police in northeastern Spain arrested nine suspected members of a jihadist group Tuesday in raids that might help resolve recent deadly attacks in Belgium and France.Police said they arrested one Spaniard and eight Moroccans living in Catalonia between 30 and 40 years old.The men arrested in Catalonia “may have participated or cooperated in past actions” and may have traveled to Belgium, Catalonia’s regional interior minister Jordi Jane told radio Rac1.A regional police spokeswoman said at least four of the detained are suspected of being linked to people arrested following the 2016 Brussels airport and subway attacks that killed 32 people and wounded 300 others. The officer spoke on condition of anonymity in keeping with police regulations.The attacks were led by an Islamic State cell that was also responsible for the carnage in Paris in November 2015.Regional police spokesman Josep Lluis Trapero told TV3 regional television that four of the detained were clearly members the Islamic State group. He said the arrests could help solve investigations into the attacks in France and Belgium.Trapero said the group was also being investigated for drug trafficking and other crimes.A police statement said officers made 12 raids in five Catalan towns including the regional capital, Barcelona.It said the arrests followed an eight-month investigation in coordination with Belgian police.Spanish police have arrested some 200 suspected jihadis since Spain raised its national security alert to one step below the maximum in 2015.
In ‘historic’ step, first female judge appointed to Israel’s sharia courts-Justice minister says she hopes Hana Khatib will be a ‘bellwether for further appointments of women’-By Dov Lieber April 25, 2017, 6:31 pm-THE TIMES OF ISRAEL
Israel on Tuesday appointed the country’s first-ever female judge to serve in the country’s sharia court system.The unanimous appointment of Hana Khatib, hailed by some Arab lawmakers as “historic,” was carried out by the Committee to Elect sharia judges, known as qadis, which is headed by Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked.Khatib is from the town of Tamra, located in the lower Galilee region. She practices family and sharia law, according to an online advertisement for her firm.Sharia courts in Israel deal with personal status issues for the Muslim community, such as marriage, divorce, conversion, inheritance and prevention of domestic violence.They have existed in what is now Israel since early Ottoman times and through the British Mandate, and were recognized by the State of Israel upon its founding in 1948.Shaked, a member of the right-wing Jewish Home party, said the appointment of a female Muslim religious judge “should have happened a long time ago.”“This is great news for Arab women and the Arab society,” she said in a statement. “I’m excited over the choice, and hope this is the bellwether for further appointments of women.”Arab-Israeli lawmakers hailed the appointment as an achievement for Arab-Israeli women in the Jewish state.MK Aida Touma-Suleiman (Joint List), who is the chairperson of the Knesset’s Committee on the Status of Women and Gender Equality, called the appointment “a historic step in the Arab feminist movement in Israel, a step that benefits not only Arab-Muslim women, but the entire Arab population in Israel.”She said that in 2000 she filed a petition on the subject to the Supreme Court, and at the start of her tenure as a lawmaker in 2015, she, along with MK Issawi Farij (Meretz), followed up the petition with a Knesset bill.MK Osama Saadi (Joint List), a member of the Committee to Appoint Judges, said Khatib’s appointment was “a very important step in the right direction for a proper and worthy Arab representation in the judiciary.”The Abraham Fund, an Israeli nonprofit working on Arab-Jewish coexistence issues, said in a statement: “The appointment of a Muslim woman to the important role is a historic step that signals Arab women to aspire to leadership positions.”Khatib will be sworn in by President Reuven Rivlin in a few weeks.There are not many female qadis around the world. Two women serve as sharia judges in the neighboring Palestinian Authority.There are nine regional sharia courts in Israel as well as an appeal courts, with Tuesday’s appointments bringing the number of qadis in the Muslim system to 18.AFP contributed to this report.
