Saudi Former Intel Chief Condemns Palestinians for 70 Years of ‘Failures’

JERUSALEM, Israel – Saudi Arabia’s former intelligence chief blasted the Palestinian leadership for their foreign policy “failures” and outright rejection of the UAE-Israel peace deal in a scathing 40-minute interview that aired on Saudi television Monday.

“This low level of discourse is not what we expect from officials who seek to gain global support for their cause. Their transgression against the Gulf States’ leadership with this reprehensible discourse is entirely unacceptable,” former intel chief and US ambassador Bandar bin Sultan told Al-Arabiya TV.

Palestinian leaders strongly condemned Israel’s normalization with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain and warned other Arab states against formalizing ties with Israel. Bin Sultan accused the Palestinians of undermining their cause by missing critical opportunities to make forge ties with Israel and form their own independent state.

Turkish president Erdogan implied today in his speech that Jerusalem belongs to Turkey, referring to the Ottoman Empire’s control over the city for much of the modern era. @BeholdIsrael

Kosovo & Serbia Set to Move Embassies to Jerusalem

Following the historic agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Kosovo has announced the normalization of ties with Israel; Both Kosovo and Serbia are set to move their embassies to Jerusalem.

As of Friday, both Kosovo & Serbia announced their intentions to move their embassies to Jerusalem, the capital of Israel. Furthermore, on Friday, Kosovo announced that it will be normalizing its diplomatic ties with Israel. This is significant as Kosovo is a Muslim-majority country, and the first of such to move its embassy to Jerusalem.

After the announcement, President of Kosovo Hashim Thaçi took to Twitter stating, “I welcome the announcement of Israeli PM @netanyahu about the genuine intention to recognize #Kosovo and establish diplomatic relations. Kosovo will keep its promise to place its diplomatic mission in #Jerusalem.”

Following the news, US President Trump also tweeted, “Another great day for peace with the Middle East – Muslim-majority Kosovo and Israel have agreed to normalize ties and establish diplomatic relations. Well-done! More Islamic and Arab nations will follow soon!”

Kosovo’s decision follows the recent move by the UAE to normalize diplomatic ties with the Jewish State. And given the recent trip by US officials to the Middle East and what we’ve now witnessed with Kosovo and Serbia, it’s likely that more countries are soon to follow.September 5th, 2020|News copied from BeholdIsrael.org

Israel Attacks Syria Following Attempted Border Bombing

JERUSALEM, Israel – Israeli fighter jets, helicopters, and aircraft carried out airstrikes against the Syrian military Monday evening in response to an attempt by four men to plant explosives near the security fence between Israel and Syria Sunday night.

The Israel Defense Forces struck numerous positions held by Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces, including observation posts, intelligence collections systems, anti-aircraft artillery, and command and control systems.

“The IDF sees the Syrian regime as responsible for all operations carried out in its territory and will continue to act with determination against all attacks on the sovereignty of the State of Israel,” said the IDF in a statement.

Syria’s official news agency, SANA, said that the Syrian military engaged “hostile targets” near Damascus, and the enemy airstrikes inflicted “material damage” in the city of Quneitra.  Al-Arabiya reports that some injuries were sustained during the strikes.

Shortly before the airstrikes, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that an air raid by unidentified aircraft had killed at least 15 Iranian-backed militiamen in al-Bukamal.

Citing “reliable sources,” the group said the attack targeted “positions of Iranian forces and Iranian-backed militias in Imam Ali Base, areas near Al-Sekka, and in Al-Bokamal desert in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor.”

SOHR sources said that military vehicles transported dead and injured militiamen to Iraq.

On Sunday, Israeli troops killed four men who entered Israeli territory and attempted to plant explosives near an unmanned IDF post along the security fence.

Campaign Issue No. 2 Israel

The second biggest issue for me is Israel. Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East and has always been a friend to the U.S. We in exchange rely heavily on their support for our intentions in the region. I always want to vote for a pro Israeli candidate.

America is closely tied to the people and the land of Israel. The people of Israel consider 3 presidents as having been a type of Cyrus.

At midnight on May 14, 1948, the Provisional Government of Israel proclaimed a new State of Israel . On that same date, the United States, in the person of President Truman, recognized the provisional Jewish government as de facto authority of the Jewish state. The people of Israel consider Harry Truman as a type of Cyrus

When Ronald Reagan in 1987 told Gorbachev to tear down this wall, and millions of Jews behind the iron curtain were allowed to immigrate to Israel it was a moment of Biblical proportions. To this day Israel looks at Reagan as a type of Cyrus.

Present day President Trump is considered a type of Cyrus because he moved our Embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv. A move promised by several U.S. Presidents, but never followed through with. Trump has been the most pro Israeli President we have ever had.

The Bible tells us that those who bless Israel, God will bless. I am thankful for that promise. I personally believe that part of our greatness has come from that strategic alliance between our great countries.

I will always vote pro Israel!
