By signing the Executive Order, Trump’s presidential directive will broaden the existing definition of anti-Semitism to that of the IHRA, so that “targeting of the State of Israel” and singling it out for criticism above other nations will not spill over into religious discrimination that targets Jewish students.
By Itamar Eichner, News Agencies, Ilan Levinsohn
U.S. President Donald Trump plans to sign an executive order on Wednesday that would treat “Jewishness” as a nationality and not just a religion, making anti-Semitism subject to a law that bars discrimination on the basis of national origin at educational institutions that receive federal funding.

Gaza Return March Activist Maryam Abu Moussa said on an April 24, 2019 interview on Thaqalayn TV, that the Palestinians will soon bury the Jews in the” ditches of Hitler”.

The Muller report revealed Michael Flynn testified that before taking office, then President-elect Trump’s team attempted to prevent the infamous UN Security Council Resolution 2334 that Obama would allow to pass, condemning all Jewish presence in Jerusalem (yes, even at the Western Wall), Judea and Samaria.
By Arutz Sheva Staff,
The Israeli angle: The Muller report, which examined Russian involvement in the US presidential election, showed that Donald Trump worked to counter anti-Israel bias at the United Nations even before he entered the White House.
According to a report by Barak Ravid for Channel 13 News, Trump, his adviser Jared Kushner and former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, worked with several foreign governments to prevent the Security Council Resolution condemning the Jewish presence over the so-called Green Line in December 2016,

The ‘Palestinian Exception’, practiced by the previous three US Presidents, involved allowing the PLO, PA and their supporters a ‘free-pass’ for behavior that would have otherwise been acknowledged as illegal, but ignored simply because the perpetrators were Palestinians or activists in their stead.
When Rosh Hashanah ended on Tuesday evening, Jews discovered that over the holiday, the Trump administration had enacted two policies – one foreign and one domestic – that on their face, don’t appear to be connected. But actually, they stem from the same rationale. And both together and separately, these two policies give Jews much to be thankful for. Continue Reading »
Palestinian intransigence has forced Trump to look at the conflict as a ‘business deal’, uniquely changing the paradigm. To the Palestinian’s ire, there’s a ‘revolution’ to move forward – for both US fiscal responsibility, and Israel’s future…. or as the PLO would call it, a ‘nakba’ [catastrophe].
By Yochanan Visser

Last week the Trump Administration announced it would cut $200 million in U.S. Continue Reading »
ANALYSIS: President Trump is the first world leader with the fortitude to strike down the Palestinian’s unrealistic & intransigent demands that have axed every peace initiative, by every U.S. President, and every Israeli Prime Minister, over the past 40+ years.

Trump’s presidency divides Americans like never before. Most, however, would agree that his policy decisions vis-a-vis the Middle East match Israel’s interests, and at least on this point, Israel’s friend–Democrats and Republicans, alike–should support him. And Trump’s new policy regarding the Palestinian refugees is no exception.
Failing a review directed by President Trump “to ensure these funds are spent in accordance with U.S. national interests and provide value to the U.S. taxpayer,” the State Department cut $200+ million in aid to the Palestinians.
WASHINGTON — The State Department has cut more than $200 million in aid to the Palestinian Authority “at the direction of the president,” the administration announced on Friday.

Palestinian leaders, enraged at President Trump for blocking their ability to cynically manipulate the UN for political support, are now seeking ways to rid the United States of its veto powers at the Security Council.
