    Thousands of people attended the funeral in Jerusalem for the four victims of the attack on the kosher supermarket in Paris last Shabbos. Addressing the crowds, President Reuven Rivlin said: “At moments such as these, I stand before you broken-hearted, shaken and in pain, and with me stands an entire nation.” French government minister Segolene Royal told the mourners in her native language that “Anti-Semitism has no place in France. Each hit suffered by a Jew is a hit suffered by the French people.” Pictured is an inconsolable family-member.

    Beats Iron Dome -Boeing Israel head

    Dec 15, 2014 Go comment!
    “Laser is a multi-role system – like a fighter aircraft. You can deploy it on the ground, on board an aircraft, on a Jeep or on an armoured vehicle. It can intercept aircraft, missiles, artillery shells and UAVs,” says Maj-Gen (res) David Ivry. Today, Ivry, an ex-Israeli Air Force chief, heads Boeing Israel. Iron Dome won’t cope with a Hezbollah attack, he says, and Israel will have to deploy both laser weapons and the Iron Dome system in future. SEE THE VIDEO OF THE FIRST TRIALS…

    Bibi’s govt falls apart, election looms

    Dec 03, 2014 2 Comments
    Israel’s parliament will vote today to dissolve itself & trigger early elections next March. This follows PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s sacking of two significant centrist ministers from important coalition partners for disobedience. They were finance minister, Yair Lapid, and justice minister, Tzipi Livni. Netanyahu’s 22-month-old government had been facing wide internal disagreements but he straw that broke the camel’s back is thought to have been Lapid’s and Livni’s, response to a bill banning a newspaper that serves as a mouthpiece for Netanyahu.

    R Berland off the hook again in Holland

    Dec 02, 2014 1 Comment
    A Dutch court yesterday (1 Dec) announced it would again refuse Israel’s request for Shuvu Bonim leader. R Berland & many of his followers spent 5 months in Joburg after being evicted from Zim & Morocco. Apparently wanted by Israeli police to answer charges of sexual molestation, he was sought by the Hawks & fled to Holland. It then turned out that the Israelis could not show an arrest warrant existed in Israel. Between Sept & now, not enough evidence could be found & the Dutch will not have another hearing unless Israel provides more evidence.

    "Then we heard it was at our shul..."

    Nov 27, 2014 Go comment!
    This is a real tear-jerker. A private Facebook posting which Jewish Report was given permission to publish must be, without doubt, the READ OF THE WEEK. “We got a phone call from Chaya Levine asking my husband to please look at the shul next door to see if Rav Kalman was there. My husband had davened neitz with him just a short time ago. Rav Kalman gave him a hearty “yashar koach” for his duchening, and went back to learn. My husband came home to get Binyomin Dovid ready for the school bus. You see Tuesday morning is Abba day - Binyomin Dovid looks forward to Tuesday morning all week. Maybe because Abba puts ketchup on the cheese sandwich, or puts more pretzels in the bag than Ima does, or more salt on the salad...

    Israel grieves after J’salem shul atrocity

    Nov 19, 2014 5 Comments
    7 dead and many wounded at J’sem Shul Monday. Bibi promises to get tough, families taken in for questioning, homes to be demolished. See funeral pics and latest on the story. Israeli police are now starting to barricade sections of East and West Jerusalem which will hinder many businesses and movement of labour. Whereas the West Bank has been walled off, traffic between largely Palestinian East Jerusalem and the largely Jewish West has previously been allowed to operate without checkpoints.

    Bilateral trade between Jan & Aug hits record R44,2 bil. £1,6-bil in Israeli exports to UK (up 38%) & £957 mil in UK exports to Israel. Vivian Wineman, president of the British Board of Deputies, said: “This is a wonderful piece of news that shows that attempts by the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions movement to discredit Israel are failing. We are all better off - particularly Israelis and Palestinians - when there is strong trade between the UK and Israel, because it leads to tremendous economic growth, innovation and, most crucially, more jobs for all.”
