The US government has launched an unprecedented investigation into a company that produces parts for Israel's life-saving Iron Dome missile defense system, Maariv reported Wednesday morning. According to the report, Finkelstein Metals is accused of receiving prohibited government subsidies and selling products in the US at inflated prices.

They have also accused the US of violating the trade agreement between Israel and the US with this investigation. Sanctions have already been imposed on Finkelstein Metals in a move that could affect supplies for Israel's defense industries, in particular the Iron ...

A new proposal for a bill that would end the blanket exemption given to Charedim should only be promoted with the consent of all of the parties in the coalition, including the haredi parties themselves, Defense Minister Yoav Gallant said in a statement to the press on Wednesday evening. The speech was Gallant's first public address on the issue after a series of legal, legislative, and security demands brought it to the fore earlier this month. Gallant said that there was a "real and direct" need to lengthen the service of mandatory and reserve IDF soldiers but that "the war has proven that everyone must enter under the stretcher." The issue of "sharing the burden" was a "national challenge for 75 years," but Israel was facing a challenge the likes of which it had not fac...

Insights From a “Speaking Fast” I'm not usually one for joining initiatives, but this past Thursday was an exception. I encountered an incredibly heartfelt call from the families of the captives, supported by rabbis, urging a taanit dibbur, an hour without mundane speech, only Torah study and prayer. In response, I shut down my electronic devices and picked up Mesillat Yesharim, a classic mussar text by Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzatto, the Ramchal. I delved into a special edition annotated with personal reflections and interpretations written by the late Hadar Goldin, whose body is still being held by Hamas in Gaza. The Ramchal articulates in his preface that although people grasp the truth, the hustle of life often leaves them with little energy to live by it. He emphasized...

Defense Minister Yoav Gallant on Tuesday warned that Iran, Hezbollah, and Hamas are trying to use Ramadan to inflame the region so as to achieve another October 7 disaster against Israel. According to Gallant, their hope is to provoke Palestinians in the West Bank, Hezbollah, and Arabs and Muslims across the region to attack and turn their rage on Israel, using the Temple Mount and tensions in the West Bank as an excuse. The defense minister has been a leading voice for smashing Hamas and earlier in the war, tried to persuade the war cabinet to launch a preemptive strike on Hezbollah. Gallant calls for reducing tensions However, at this point, he believes that fighting the war without hesitation must go hand in hand with reducing tensions in areas where there is no reason for there to ...
In a televised statement, senior Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh called on residents of the West Bank and Jerusalem to barricade themselves at the al-Aqsa Mosque at the beginning of Ramadan. Haniyeh also called for "a broad and international movement to break the siege on al-Aqsa Mosque." Hostage negotiations Haniyeh asserted that when it came to hostage negotiations, Hamas was demonstrating "flexibility," though the terrorist group maintained that they would continue fighting.  Haniyeh addressed the possibility of the IDF's invasion of Rafah and expressed hope that international efforts would restrain Israel's ambitions of an invasion.  In his own words, "The occupation and its partner, the United States, will not be able to achieve through politica...

Former President Trump asked a New York appeals court to put on hold the enforcement of the multimillion dollar penalties he faces in his civil fraud case, suggesting he’d post a $100 million bond while the process plays out. Judge Arthur Engoron ordered Trump to pay nearly $355 million, plus interest, in penalties after finding he conspired to alter his net worth to receive tax and insurance benefits. The total judgement against Trump, which climbs nearly $112,000 in interest each day he doesn’t pay it, now amounts to more than $454 million. On top of that, Engoron ruled that Trump, his business and top executives could not obtain loans from New York banks for three years. Trump’s lawyers wrote in court filings Wednesday that the staggering judgement makes it “i...

Mitch McConnell, the longest-serving Senate leader in history who maintained his power in the face of dramatic convulsions in the Republican Party for almost two decades, will step down from that position in November. McConnell, who turned 82 last week, was set to announce his decision Wednesday in the well of the Senate, a place where he looked in awe from its back benches in 1985 when he arrived and where he grew increasingly comfortable in the front row seat afforded the party leaders. “One of life’s most underappreciated talents is to know when it’s time to move on to life’s next chapter,” he said in prepared remarks obtained by The Associated Press. “So I stand before you today ... to say that this will be my last term as Republican lead...
Iran has given Lebanese terror organization Hezbollah the green light to escalate its attacks along Israel's northern border, the Arabic Post reported on Wednesday, citing high-level Iranian and Lebanese sources. The Islamic Republic has reportedly set conditions for Hezbollah, ordering it to launch a large-scale attack on Israel only after it "had become certain of Israel's intention" to carry out an invasion of the southern Gaza city of Rafah. As per the report, Tehran gave the go-ahead amid fears that, after the IDF completes an invasion of Rafah, southern Lebanon "will be next." Nasrallah calls emergency meeting with Quds Force chief over Israeli threats  A source from Iran's Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) told Arabic Post that Esmail Qaani, the IRGC...

Major Aviran Hazan, a battalion commander in the 646th brigade, found a sign reading ‘Hannah and Daniel Yaffe’ in Hebrew in a house in Khan Yunis. During an interview with Kan this morning, he announced that he and his soldiers would like to return the sign to its owners. Before the interview had ended, the owners had been located, and Daniel and Hannah Yaffe explained on air that the sign was more than forty years old. “May God protect you every step of the way, and may you all return home safely. Thank you for everything that you are doing for Israel,” Hannah told the soldiers. “The sign is peanuts,” she claimed, “But it is most exciting that you found something like that. Who would have believed it? We lived in Bat Yam, and that sign was at t...
Energy Minister Eli Cohen (Likud), who until recently served as Israel's Foreign Minister, believes that Israel should oppose in the strongest possible way any step that would lead to the recognition or establishment of a Palestinian state. "The United States is a great friend of Israel and we have seen this throughout the war. At the same time, even among friends, there are also different opinions. The Biden administration believes in the two-state solution, and we tell them, especially after October 7, that a Palestinian state will not be established. Just as no one thought of giving a state to Al Qaeda after September 11, it is impossible to offer a state to the Palestinians after October 7. We have no intention of establishing another Hamastan in Judea and Samaria," Cohen said in...
