Europe: Israel has blocked 30 to 40 major attacks in Europe

Posted: 01 Dec 2017 08:47 AM PST


Via The Jerusalem Post:
According to a senior diplomatic official, Netanyahu is expected to tell the European leaders that their obsessive focus on the settlements is "ridiculous."
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to tell the 28 EU foreign ministers in Brussels next month that they should ask their people whether they want all that Israel has to offer – anti-terrorism expertise and technology – or Ramallah.

Netanyahu, who over the last year has raised with every visiting EU foreign minister his desire to address all 28 ministers at one of their monthly meetings, received a formal invitation on Tuesday to do just that.

According to a senior diplomatic official, Netanyahu is expected to tell the European leaders that their obsessive focus on the settlements is "ridiculous;" remind them that the Arab-Israeli conflict predated the settlements by 50 years; and say that 85% of the settlements are in the settlement blocs that "everyone knows will be part of Israel."

In addition, the official said, Netanyahu will say, "We in Israel are the future. We will bring you water, technology and security against terrorists. We have blocked 30 to 40 major attacks in Europe. You ask your people whether they would rather have that or Ramallah."  (...)

Although these are messages that Netanyahu has repeated numerous times, the official said the statements will have a greater impact when said directly at the heart of the EU in Brussels. (...)
One Israeli diplomatic official said he was "surprised" that the Europeans agreed to host Netanyahu at the Foreign Affairs Council meeting.

"He has raised it with every European foreign minister he has met over the last year," the official said. "They were stand-offish, saying they weren't sure they could do it. The fact that it is happening is significant."

The official said Netanyahu is keen on meeting the ministers in order to break the automatic majority against Israel at the UN and in international forums, such as the EU, which often votes as a bloc.

Netanyahu, the official said, has made breaking the automatic majority at the UN one of his top foreign policy priorities, not because the anti-Israel resolutions at the UN cause him to "lose any sleep," but because he sees these resolutions as a "strategic threat" since they could be used as a basis of action against Israel at the International Criminal Court.

Netanyahu himself has said that breaking the automatic majority is one of the reasons for his focus on improving ties with Africa.

UK: Student union scraps election after president's 'Zionist' comment

Posted: 01 Dec 2017 05:49 AM PST


Via The Jewish Chronicle:
A university's students' union has cancelled an election for one of its offices after its president appeared to describe one of candidates as a "very Zionist type person" and urged people to vote for his opponent
Candidates were standing for a role on the democratic procedures committee (DPC) at the University of the West of England (UWE). 
The committee oversees the democratic process at the Bristol-based university and has five members responsible for voting on student ideas. 
Voting in the election was due to close tomorrow. However, in screenshots of a message from a Whatsapp group, Zain Choudry, union president, sent what he described as "an urgent call out to all of you". 
"Please vote for Alex to be a member of the DPC instead of this William Bates as he is a very Zionist type person who pushes for Israel flags to be put up outside of the SU [student union] and wants to end the BDS campaign," Mr Choudry wrote. (...)
Speaking to the JC, Mr Bates said that he was "surprised by Zain's comments"."They [the comments] are an obvious breach of the election rules and the position I was running for had nothing to do with Israel, and so it seems to me that it could be questioned what 'very zionist type of person' means to him here," he said. 
He added that although he was not Jewish, his campaign "was supported by several Jewish students, which probably led to this.  
"I have no idea where he got the claim regarding Israel flags outside the SU from, although UWE does have a flagpole that flies international flags for various national days and I wouldn't be opposed to that in that context."

Russian priest denies blaming Jews for killing tsar

Posted: 01 Dec 2017 03:05 AM PST


Via The Times of Israel:
The head of a Russian Orthodox Church panel looking into the 1918 killing of Russia's last tsar and his family said his statement that the church is investigating whether it was a ritual murder had no anti-Semitic connotations.

Father Tikhon Shevkunov said Thursday that he was only talking about the "ritual revenge of atheist Bolsheviks" and never implicated the Jews.  
At an event in Moscow earlier this week, Shevkunov said that according to "the most rigorous approach to the version of ritual murder, a significant part of the church commission [on Nicholas II's killing during the Russian revolution of 1917] has no doubt that this murder was ritual." 
That drew an angry response from Russia's largest Jewish group, which denounced the words as a revival of anti-Semitic myths. 
Also at the conference, Marina Molodtsova, a senior investigator for a special ministerial committee on the 1917 slaying of Nicholas II of Russia, said her committee will conduct "a psycho-historical examination" to find out whether the execution of the royal family was a ritual murder, Ria Novosti reported. 
Claims that Nicholas was killed by Jews for ritual purposes had been limited before the conference to a fringe of zealous anti-Semites and promoters of unsophisticated conspiracy theories.

Via The Jewish Chronicle:
Staff at a Judaica store have been left "shocked" after an anonymous caller rang the shop and said "Hitler had the best ovens". 
Brauns Judaica, in Stamford Hill, north London received the call at around 6pm yesterday. 
The antisemitic comment was all that was said before the phone was put down. A member of staff at the shop told the JC: "It was very, very bad – it was very scary. If they start calling you, what's going to be next? It's really shocking." 
The telephone call is the latest in a number of antisemitic incidents which have taken place in Stamford Hill, including swastikas being daubed on walls and roads and members of the area's Jewish community being subjected to verbal and physical abuse.
