Rashida Tlaib was accused of anti-Semitism again based on remarks about Biden’s Jewish secretary of state appointee. Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib responded to president-elect Joe Biden’s appointment of Antony Blinken as his secretary of state with a non sequitur referencing Israel that immediately led to accusations of anti-Semitism. Blinken is set to be the first Jewish secretary of state in decades. “So long as [Blinken] doesn’t suppress my First Amendment right to speak out against [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu’s racist and inhumane policies,” she said in response to a tweet from a Bernie Sanders’ campaign manager. “The Palestinian people deserve equality and justice.” Join BJL on WhatsApp Status: Click here to Join...

BNEI BRAK (VINnews) — As coronavirus infections in the Chareidi community and the general public in Israel continue to decrease, there have been increasing calls to reopen the educational system, closed since the middle of September. In the meantime only the 1st-4th grades returned to their studies two weeks ago, with 5th-6th grades slated to begin from Tuesday. Talmud Torahs also returned to their studies a few weeks ago despite government opposition, but the Chinuch Atzmai schools which are largely funded by the government were told by Rabbi Gershon Edelstein to wait for government approval. However Rabbi Edelstein and Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky have now ruled that the schools should open to all grades -both for boys and girls – up to 8th grade, while maintaining all the precau...

Director of PLO Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Qadri Abu Bakr tells “The New York Times” that the Palestinian Authority is changing its “pay for slay” policy, after conveying the opposite message in Arabic. A Palestinian Authority official told The New York Times on Nov. 21 that the P.A. would be changing its policy of rewarding terrorists with salaries based on the length of their prison sentence, and instead provide money on the basis of the needs of each individual terrorist’s family. However, Palestinian Media Watch reported on Sunday that the same official—director of Palestinian [PLO] Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Qadri Abu Bakr—had expressed the opposite sentiment two days earlier in Arabic in the U.K.-based pu...

CAIRO (VINnews) — How much can a picture accomplish? In the case of a Cairo woman who was photographed selling lupines in teeming rain, the picture was not just worth a thousand words but rather tens of thousands of dollars. An Emirati woman saw the viral picture of Nemaat, a 63-year-old Cairo vendor huddling to protect herself from the cold and the rain while she sold stewed lupines, a popular local dish. The woman decided to donate to the vendor, dubbed “the woman in the rain” by viewers, an apartment as well as a regular stipend in order that she should not have to continue her grueling trade in all weathers.

DETROIT (AP) — The U.S. is making General Motors recall and repair nearly 6 million big pickup trucks and SUVs equipped with potentially dangerous Takata air bag inflators. The decision announced Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration will cost the automaker an estimated $1.2 billion, about one third of its net income this year. GM says it will not fight the recall, and it will repair another 1 million vehicles worldwide. The Detroit automaker had petitioned the agency four times starting in 2016 to avoid a recall, contending the air bag inflator canisters have been safe on the road and in testing. But owners say the company has placed a priority on profits, not safety. Exploding Takata inflators caused the largest series of auto recalls in U.S. history, wit...

President Donald Trump railed against the Paris climate accord on Sunday, telling world leaders at a virtual summit that the agreement was designed to cripple the U.S. economy, not save the planet. “To protect American workers, I withdrew the United States from the unfair and one-sided Paris climate accord, a very unfair act for the United States,” Trump said in a video statement from the White House to the Group of 20 summit hosted by Saudi Arabia. His comments came during a discussion among the world’s largest economies on safeguarding the Earth. President-elect Joe Biden, who takes office in January, has said he will rejoin the global pact that the U.S. helped forge five years ago. Trump contended the international accord was “not designed to save the environm...
