President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman will not be testifying Wednesday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, as originally scheduled, after the committee rescinded its subpoena. The committee withdrew its subpoena for Paul Manafort late Tuesday after Manafort agreed to turn over documents and to continue negotiating about setting up an interview with the panel, according to Taylor Foy, a spokesman for Sen. Chuck Grassley, the Judiciary Committee chairman. The committee also removed Donald Trump Jr. from the list of witnesses scheduled for Wednesday’s public hearing. ...
HaGaon HaRav Meir Mazuz Shlita, Rosh Yeshivas Kisei Rachamim addressed his shiurim that are aired on Kol Berama Radio. In a recent shiur, the rav addressed questions that some disagree with his rulings and do not follow his viewpoint. “I am not the posek hador. I am nothing, a nobody and therefore, one can follow who one wishes. One is not compelled to listen to my words. I am certain of the correctness of my position but one is not compelled to accept what I say for I am a none” stated the rav in response. There is much division in the Sephardi community since the petira of HaGaon HaRav Ovadia Yosef ZT”L . Rav Mazuz backs Eli Yishai, who broke away from Shas after Aryeh Deri returned as party leader. This has also resulted in a boycott of Shas and its affiliates of Kol...
The Senate’s days-long debate on health care features a dynamic that’s relatively rare on Capitol Hill. Genuine suspense. Debate kicked off Tuesday without an obvious endgame. Several Republicans voted to start debate but said the bill will have to be changed for them to vote to actually pass the legislation later this week. The amendment process promises to be extensive and freewheeling. And victory for Republicans and President Donald Trump is not guaranteed. The Senate has started off by taking up the House-passed bill — which doesn’t have enough support to pass the Senate — and it’ll take near-unanimity among Republicans for them to alter the measure. Right now, they’re deeply divided. “We obviously don’t have consensus on where...
Passengers at all U.S. airports will soon face new measures for screening electronic devices bigger than a cellphone. Security officers will ask travelers in regular lanes to take all larger devices out of their bag and put them in a bin by themselves, similar to the screening of most travelers’ laptops. Officials say it gives X-ray screeners a clearer picture of the devices. The change won’t apply to Precheck lanes. The Transportation Security Administration said Wednesday the new procedure will go nationwide in the coming weeks and months. TSA has been testing it at 10 airports for more than a year. The Department of Homeland Security has been changing rules for electronics on international flights because of the threat that terrorists could hide bombs inside laptop or t...
Baltimore’s new transportation director said Wednesday the city will begin issuing speed camera fines Monday — the first time since 2013. Transportation Director Michelle Pourciau said 10 speed cameras will begin issuing $40 fines and eight red light cameras would begin a month-long warning phase before they begin issuing $75 fines. “We’re going to start fining,” she said. “So slow down.” Pourciau said the 10 speed cameras have been giving out a total of about 1,000 warnings per day since they went back online weeks ago. “This is no joke,” she said....read more at Baltimore Sun

IDF soldier accidentally shot in third incident in 2 months. A soldier was lightly injured when a bullet was accidentally fired at a base in central Israel Wednesday. The soldier was evacuated to the hospital. The IDF Military Police opened an investigation into the incident. Earlier this month, Lieutenant David Golovenchich, 22, was killed by an accidental firearm discharge during a training exercise at the Gilber checkpoint in Hevron. The commander of the Central Command, Major General Roni Numa, appointed a committee of experts headed by Colonel Ronen Tamim, the head of the Idan division, to investigate the circumstances of the incident. The Military Police opened its own investigation into the incident. About a month and a half ago, a 19-year-old soldier on leave was wounde...
Mikhael Mirilashvili, freed in 2009 after imprisonment on trumped-up charges, elected president of the Euro-Asian Jewish Congress. Eight years after his release from wrongful imprisonment in Russia, the Israeli billionaire Mikhael Mirilashvili was elected to lead the World Jewish Congress Euro-Asian affiliate, representing communities from Ukraine to Singapore. Mirilashvili, who had spent eight years in a Russian prison until 2009 on trumped up charges connected to his father’s abduction, was voted president of the Euro-Asian Jewish Congress Monday, the organization said, replacing the Austrian baking magnate Julius Meinl. Mirilashvili, a 57-year-old physician turned industrialist who was born in the Caucasian republic of Georgia, presented a relatively conservative age...
Member of Nazi unit which butchered 90,000 Jews stripped of Canadian citizenship for hiding Nazi past. A 93-year-old ex-Nazi stripped of his Canadian citizenship for an unprecedented fourth time is vowing to appeal the decision yet again. Last week, Canada revoked the citizenship of Helmut Oberlander, a retired developer in Waterloo, Ontario, who has been accused of hiding his Nazi past before obtaining citizenship in 1960. The government had stripped Oberlander of his citizenship in 2001, 2007 and 2012, but the decisions were repealed after appeals by his lawyers. Born in Ukraine, he was forcibly conscripted as an interpreter for the Nazis with Einsatzkommando 10a, a mobile killing unit that executed thousands of Jews in the former Soviet Union. Oberlander has consistently mainta...
After 15 years, European soccer league again considering having Israeli teams hold their European tournament 'home games' outside of Israel. After 15 years of quiet from Europe’s soccer association UEFA on the matter of Israel’s hosting of European teams in Israel, the current security situation has again caused the association to raise the issue. In light of the terror attacks on the Temple Mount and the community of Halamish, as well as other terror-related incidents in Israel, UEFA turned to the international soccer federation, FIFA, requesting “guarantees” for European tournament qualifying games hosted in Israel - namely, qualifiers for the European Championship and the Champions League. UEFA indicated that it does not rule out the possibilit...

'The State of Israel will not allow the establishment of a Palestinian state whose capital is eastern Jerusalem.' The Knesset approved this evening, Wednesday, in its first reading the “United Jerusalem Law” spearheaded by Jewish Home party Chairman Naftali Bennett and Jewish Home MK Shuli Moalem-Refaeli. The Bill seeks to require an 80-MK supermajority for any division of Jerusalem in future peace agreements. Now, the Bill goes to the Knesset Constitution, Law, and Justice Committee in preparation for second and third readings. Bennett praised the development this evening, claiming that the Law’s passage will knock down any possibility of Jerusalem being divided again. “The capital city was twice saved from the tragedy of division led by [f...
'State Department fears its own words would be used by Congress to cut funding to the PA, so it intentionally slants reports.' Two prominent former Israeli diplomats accused the US State Department of copying parts of old reports into newer reports in order to whitewash the Palestinian Authority's (PA) incitement to violence, the Jewish News Service (JNS) reported. Last week, the State Department released its annual assessment of global terrorism for 2016. Former Ambassador Alan Baker and ex-diplomat Lenny Ben-David, noted that the report used nearly identical language to defend the PA from accusations of incitement for the tenth consecutive year. “The PA has taken significant steps during President [Mahmoud] Abbas’s tenure (2005 to d...

The Senate has blocked a wide-ranging proposal by Republicans to repeal much of former President Barack Obama’s health care law and replace it with a more restrictive plan. Senators voted 57-43 late Tuesday to reject the plan in the first vote on an amendment to the bill. Those voting “no” included nine defecting Republicans. The Hill reported that the nine Republicans included GOP Sens. Susan Collins, Bob Corker, Tom Cotton, Lindsey Graham, Dean Heller, Mike Lee, Jerry Moran, Lisa Murkowski and Rand Paul. The list includes both moderates and conservatives. The vote underscored problems Republicans will have in winning enough votes to recast Obama’s statute. The rejected proposal included language by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell erasing the Obama ...

Mahwah, NJ - While Mahwah residents say they were blindsided by the eruv that was erected in their township, at least some village officials were aware of the eruv plans weeks ago. As previously reported on VIN News (http://bit.ly/2h13FiJ), Mahwah residents discovered last week that an eruv had been put up in their township after noticing white PVC piping appearing on numerous utility poles. Township officials notified the eruv committee that the piping violated a town ordinance against posting signs on utility poles and gave the committee until August 4th to remove the eruv. A grassroots effort to remove the eruv, which relies almost entirely on the existing telephone wires instead of the usual string, kicked off Monday night at an emotional meeting held in a local park. Rabb...
