When he testified before the Congressional Committee on Education & the Workforce on May 23, Rutgers President Jonathan Holloway admitted that there is a problem with antisemitism at Rutgers and that his administration had been too slow to implement necessary changes in response to it. Yet, in an opinion article in NJ.com on May 22, Rutgers Professor Todd R. Clear wrote, “Rampant antisemitism at Rutgers? In a word, no.” Professor Clear’s opinion is diametrically opposed to that of many Jews at Rutgers and members of the investigating Committee, which is focusing on antisemitism on campuses including Rutgers. The recent disruptive tent encampment by pro-Palestinian, anti-Israel protesters on the Rutgers-New Brunswick campus was clearly antisemiti...

Tzachi Hanegbi, head of Israel's National Security Council, on Wednesday warned that the war in Gaza will last at least another seven months. "The war will be long," Hanegbi told Kan Reshet Bet. "This year as well, we are expecting another seven months of fighting." According to Hanegbi, the IDF now controls about 75% of the Philadelphi Corridor. Later, Hanegbi responded to the accusations that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is torpedoing a prisoner swap deal, saying, "This is a revolting thing, and it's political manipulations." "The Prime Minister, Defense Minister, and Cabinet have instructed the negotiating team to expand their mandate yet again. The other side is rigid and cruel, and Israel has been forced to erode its position - so much that the American...

IDF Arabic spokesman Avichay Adraee on Wednesday evening revealed a document written by a senior Hamas terrorist documenting the fact that the terror group robbed a Gaza bank in order to fund the fighting against Israel.

Two days later, they broke into another branch in Gaza Ccity, stealing tens of millions of shekels. On April 19, th...

Jerusalem, Israel - May 29, 2024 - Israel is set to introduce a new electronic travel authorization (ETA) system for visitors from visa-exempt countries in the coming months. This system will mirror the U.S. ESTA program and similar systems in other countries, designed to streamline entry procedures for non-citizens. Visitors from countries that do not require visas to enter Israel will be required to obtain an ETA before boarding a flight to Israel. An ETA will be valid for two years, and allows the holder to enter Israel multiple times. A fee of 25 NIS will be collected. Citizens of Israel, or non-citizens who have a mispar zehut (Israeli identity number), will not be required to obtain an ETA. Similarly, student visa holders will be exempt from this process.  It is imp...
White House National Security Council spokesperson John Kirby told reporters on Tuesday that Sunday’s air strike in Rafah did not cross President Joe Biden's red line. “We don’t want to see a major ground operation, we haven’t seen that at this point,” Kirby said in Tuesday’s press briefing when asked how this attack does not cross the president’s red line, as quoted by CNN. Kirby added that he had “no policy changes to speak to” when asked if this strike would change policy, but emphasized that this strike “just happened.” The comments follow an Israeli strike in Rafah on Sunday in which two senior Hamas terrorists were eliminated, but which Hamas claimed killed dozens of Gazans who fled the...
