Lieberman signs a vote-sharing deal with Gantz and Lapid's party

Avigdor Lieberman's just dropped another hint his motives aren't sincere by making a vote-sharing deal with the hypocritically named Blue & White:
Blue and White and Yisrael Beytenu faced condemnations from across the political spectrum on Tuesday for signing an agreement to share excess votes in the September 17 election.

Surplus-vote sharing agreements enable votes for a party to move to another if both have votes beyond the amount a seat is calculated to be worth. Calculations determine if there are enough extra votes between the two to give the party with more extra votes an additional seat.

The Likud released a video within 20 minutes of the signing of the deal warning that a vote for Yisrael Beytenu would help enable Blue and White leaders Benny Gantz and Yair Lapid to replace Benjamin Netanyahu as prime minister.

[...] The Democratic Union attacked Blue and White, saying that by signing the agreement with Liberman, Blue and White was accepting his agenda of depriving citizenship to Arabs who are not deemed loyal, exchanges of populations, and episodes of corruption. “This is who Blue and White chose as a natural partner,” the Democratic Union said.
So even the Meretz/Barak alliance detests this for their own reasons, though at this point, it's clear Lieberman's not much different from them. His shady dealings with such dreadful people only show why he should be retiring from politics by now. I hope people don't vote for either Lieberman or Gantz. Neither deserve anybody's votes.

Jordan's parliament wants to abolish the "peace treaty" with Israel

Not that there actually was any "peace" to begin with, but anyway, here's a sign they want to backtrack on something they never truly made progress on:
The Jordanian Parliament has recommended that the Jordanian government re-examine its peace treaty with Israel, Sky News reported Monday.

According to the report, Jordan's Parliament recommended the country expel Israel's ambassador, recall the Jordanian ambassador to Israel, and re-examine the peace agreement between the two countries.

On Sunday, Jordan's Foreign Ministry summoned Israeli Ambassador to Jordan Amir Weisbrod for a dressing down, emphasizing to him that Jordan condemns the Israeli activity at Al-Aqsa Mosque and on the Temple Mount, and demanding the activity and "violations of international law" cease immediately.

In fact, the "violations" Jordan complained of were Israeli police defending themselves from terrorists who attacked them on the Temple Mount during Eid al-Adha, as well as Israeli police using riot dispersal methods to disperse hundreds of Muslim worshipers violently rioting on Tisha B'av.

Last Tuesday, Jordan's Foreign Ministry criticized Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan (Likud) for saying Jews should be permitted to pray on the Temple Mount and that the current status quo is wrong.
It's going to happen sooner or later. A sad end to a "treaty" that never really was, with a country that considers Jewish history invalid in every way.

Ehud Barak alienates Israeli Arabs

Barak's disturbing connections with Jeffrey Epstein have already made some headlines. Now, another thing making some headlines is that he's made comments that angered the Joint Arab List's chairman:
Joint Arab List Chairman Ayman Odeh over the weekend called on former prime minister and Democratic Union member Ehud Barak to drop out of the Sept. 17 Knesset race, saying Barak's apology for the events of October 2000 was hollow.

In a Facebook post, Odeh condemned Barak for calling on Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan to temper the police's reaction to the escalating protests against Attorney General Avichai Mendelblit, but rejected the apology, saying Barak had "betrayed," Israeli Arabs.

Earlier, Barak had written a Facebook post about arrests made during the weekly protest near Mendelblit's home in Petach Tikva – a weekly occurrence expressing frustration by some who believe the attorney general is dragging his feet in the investigations against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

"Erdan, Petah Tikva is not Umm al-Hiran, civilians are allowed to protest," Barak wrote, referring to the Bedouin village that has been at the center of diplomatic controversy ahead of its planned demolition.

Commenting on Barak's apology for the killing of 12 Israeli Arabs and a Palestinian by security forces during clashes in 2000, which took place while Barak was prime minister and are widely considered at the trigger to the Second Intifada, Odeh wrote, "Barak, protesting is allowed in Umm al-Hiran as well, and Arab citizens are also allowed to protest.

"Nineteen years have passed since you were responsible for the killing of 13 Arab citizens because they took to the streets. Nineteen years since you betrayed the hundreds of thousands of Arabs who voted for you in the direct election against Benjamin Netanyahu. We learned the hard way that there are more important things than the politics of 'anyone but Bibi.'"
Well, it looks like Barak can't please everyone in the Arab sector after all, try as he might. It's possible that, as a result, less will be voting for the joint list Meretz formed with Barak under the laughable name of "Democratic Camp". Maybe Barak should consider retiring from politics already, and come to think of it, from the business sector as well. He may already have millions provided to him by Epstein when he was still around, and he may want to donate them all to charity as well. There's much more important things Barak can do with his time than waste it in the Knesset.

The noisy leftist demonstrations against Avichai Mandelblit have to cease

This may have been going on for 3 years already - leftists who've been loudly protesting in front of attorney-general Avichai Mandelblit's Petah Tikva residence and along the path to his synagogue, all because they want him to prosecute Benjamin Netanyahu over even the most petty accusations, even at the expense of the other residents' peace and quiet, and in violation of laws against disturbing peace and acting disorderly. As a result, they've finally had to make arrests and impose fines:
Four people were arrested and three others detained Friday night during anti-corruption protests near the home of Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit.

Police said demonstrators had defied new guidelines which forbid protests along Mandelblit’s route to and from his neighborhood synagogue in the central Israeli city of Petah Tikva.

Officials said demonstrators also refused to accompany them to the police station, used loudspeakers, which is also forbidden, and obstructed the officers in carrying out their duties.

[...] Activists have petitioned the High Court of Justice against the new police directives issued this week, which place stringent limits on areas in which rallies can be held and forbid the use of voice amplification equipment. The new rules also limit the hours during which protests can be held.

Anti-corruption activists have been holding regular protests near Mandelblit’s home for years, demanding he indict Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the corruption cases into his affairs.
It's clear these aren't anti-corruption activists at all. Just moonbats interested in undermining Netanyahu and getting rid of him, while turning a deaf ear and blind eye at any of Ehud Barak's own corruptions. I'm not sure what left-wing outfits are bankrolling this bunch, but their disgusting behavior has to cease, period. The city authorities are right to get around to opposing them.

Democrats unconcerned about Britain's barring opponents of Islam from entering

Robert Spencer looks at the double-standard of the Democrats who condemned Israel's prohibiting Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar from entering the country, yet had no issue with England forbidding entry to Spencer and Pamela Geller:
Did Cicilline, Warren, or anyone else question Britain’s commitment to democracy when the British Home Office banned Pamela Geller and me from entering that country? Of course not. Have they ever questioned the ever-lengthening line of foes of jihad terror that Britain has banned? Not at all.

When Geller and I were banned from Britain in 2013, I received an official letter from the British Home Office, notifying me that I would not be allowed to enter the country on the grounds that “your presence here is not conducive to the public good.” [...]
And that demonstrates how evil the Democrats have become over past decades.

Since we're on the subject, it's also worth noting this article, which tells about the grave situation London's become the biggest victim of, courtesy of the same UK government that doesn't allow opponents of Islam into the country to speak about:
...Over the past couple of years, more than 340,000 people have moved away from London amid rising levels of knife crime, according to reports. Extortionate property prices and poor air quality are also cited as reasons for people choosing to leave the capital and set up a new life elsewhere in the UK. Obviously, people want a better quality of life; also, people would prefer not to get stabbed.

However, could there be another reason for the mass exodus?

I ask this because London is acquiring an increasingly Islamic face.

In the words of Maulana Syed Raza Rizvi, an eminent preacher in the city, “London is more Islamic than many Muslim countries put together.” Yes, that London, as in the home of red buses and posh accents. The "traditional" picture of London has been replaced with a more worrying one. According to Giulio Meotti, a researcher at the Gatestone Institute, by 2020, “estimates are that the number of Muslims attending prayers will reach at least 683,000, while the number of Christians attending weekly Mass will drop to 679,000.” Next year, Islam looks likely to be the dominant religion in the capital.

[...] Worryingly, major British cities are full of sharia courts. London, for example, has over 100. How did this happen?

According to the aforementioned Giotti, “The advent of this parallel judicial system has been made possible thanks to the British Arbitration Act and the system of Alternative Dispute Resolution. These new courts are based on the rejection of the inviolability of human rights: the values of freedom and equality that are the basis of English Common Law.”
It's also been made possible by the very government that again, doesn't allow critics of Islam into the UK. Both liberal and conservative-leaning governments have allowed this. And even under Boris Johnson, it doesn't look like it's getting any better.

US Boy Scouts charters a movement to Houston's Islamic movement

The scout business that recent caved to LGBT ideology has just proven they're simultaneously in favor of doing services for Islamofascism:
The Islamic Education Center (IEC) of Houston has launched a chartered Cub Scout troop that is officially under the auspices of the Boy Scouts of America, reports the Clarion Project, a Washington-based non-profit organization that monitors radical Islamic activity.

The IEC, a Shiite mosque with a history of extremism, got its “Al Qasim” Cub Scouts program off the ground on July 24th, 2019.

A disturbing Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) video, filmed in February, features boys at the IEC celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution and singing praises for Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ai Khamenei.

In the video, a 10th-grader addresses a group in support of the Islamic Revolution in Iran and against U.S. policy in support of Israel.

Members of the audience shout: “Away with the humiliation!” and “Allah is Great! [Iranian Islamic leader] Khamanei is our leader!”

The children also celebrate the warriors of the 7th-century Battle of Khaybar, in which Moslems attacked and destroyed the Jewish community in northern Arabia.

It is concerning that the IEC, which is clearly indoctrinating youth with anti-American and anti-Semitic values, apparently will now have an opportunity to enhance its agenda under the auspices of the respected Boy Scouts of America.
Whoa. Not so fast. Why must an alleged education system that capitulated to the LGBT propaganda indoctrination outfits - yet won't oppose Islam's ostensible homophobia - be considered "respected"? That certainly isn't the case now that a lot of parents are distancing themselves, along with some church movements to boot. This could probably be considered an extension of the corrupted path they're taking, condoning homophilia on the one hand, and Islamophilia on the other. It's not even new, and the Girl Scouts have also been impacted by this tommyrot. If this is what the Boy/Girl Scouts are going to be about for as long as they're still around, that's just why they should be shunned at this point. It's not like they were saints to begin with anyway.

Signs turn up in Jeffrey Epstein's corpse of broken bones

An autopsy reveals surprising details about how the now deceased child-raping financier Epstein died in his cell:
Accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, who sources say hanged himself in a New York City jail, sustained a broken hyoid bone, a city official with knowledge of the autopsy told ABC News.

Epstein, who was found unresponsive Saturday morning in his cell at Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, hanged himself with a bedsheet, law enforcement sources told ABC News.

Experts say the injury can be associated with suicide or strangulation.

Though the autopsy was completed Sunday, the cause of death remains pending as federal investigators examine the circumstances of Epstein’s death.

A law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation told ABC News there is nothing to suggest Epstein died in any manner other than suicide.
Oh, really? How do we know the evil man whom Ehud Barak was friends with really just committed suicide? How do we know it wasn't something shadier, explaining why the guards just took off and allowed this to happen? There's definitely more to this case than meets the eye, and pressure must be put on authorities to keep investigating, and be more honest about it too. This is certainly a most fishy case.

A Jordanian-set movie ceases production over refusal to accept Jewish history

I don't know if the following canceled movie is Jordanian-made per se, though it does appear to be produced by Arabic sources. And the Jordanian government put the kibosh on it altogether because it contained what they considered the wrong elements:
A fictional caper about an antiquities heist set in an ancient Jordanian city has stirred widespread outrage over the film's portrayal of historical Jewish ties to Jordan, shining a light on the tenuous peace with neighboring Israel and prompting the government to suspend the movie's production.

Based on a book of the same name, the movie, "Jaber," follows a Jordanian boy who uncovers a stone in the rose-colored, rock-hewn city of Petra with a Hebrew inscription on it. He sets off to sell it to the highest bidder, but interested parties in Israel catch wind of the find, dispatching a Russian organized crime group to pursue the boy and retrieve the stone at any cost.

Opponents of the film say merely discussing a historical Jewish presence in Jordan could open the door to Israeli territorial claims to the Hashemite Kingdom. They point to Israel's claims over the West Bank and east Jerusalem — war-won territories sought by the Palestinians — which Israel says are rooted in millennia-old Jewish ties, backed up by archaeological finds.

[...] The movie was set to begin filming this month when actors began dropping out over the script and taking to social media to air their criticisms, sparking a public outcry. Seizing on the wave of public opinion against the movie, the government demanded that the director, Muhyiedeen Qandour, halt filming until an official commission studies the script and delivers recommendations on it. It is unclear how long that may take.
It could probably be called a "moral panic" except there's nothing moral in their belief system at all. What's telling about the film is that, despite the elements that made the Jordanians object, there's still elements of anti-semitism involved, like how a Russian syndicate's hired to pursue the boy who finds the artifact, instead of just taking the role of highest bidder, which he seeks. Which makes it one of those locally produced forms of propaganda. Just plain grotesque of them. This is definitely not something worth paying tickets for, if it ever shows up in theaters.

Keeping Tlaib and Omar out of Israel is the right thing to do

Following the news that Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar would be "visiting" Israel this month, the Israeli government initially considered allowing them to enter, but now, they've wisely decided against it:
Israel is to bar US Democratic congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from entering the country over their support for the BDS boycott movement.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu confirmed the move, which reversed an earlier pledge to permit entry to the politicians, on Thursday afternoon.

“Israel's law prohibits the entry of people who call and operate to boycott Israel, as is the case with other democracies that prevent the entry of people whose perception harms the country,” he said in a statement.

“Only a few days ago, we received their [Ilhan Olmar and Rashida Tlaib] visitation plan, and it became clear that they were planning a campaign whose sole purpose was to strengthen the boycott and negate Israel's legitimacy.”

David Friedman, the US ambassador in Israel, welcomed the decision.

“This trip, pure and simple, is nothing more than an effort to fuel the BDS engine that Congresswomen Tlaib and Omar so vigorously support.”
The reason it's best not to allow them entry is because they could possibly incite violence and other bad news that Israel could do without. There can be no doubt the two of them would meet with terrorist conductors like Mahmoud Abbas and also the Hamas, and that too can be dangerous. Donald Trump himself urged Israel not to grant them entry:

Definitely correct. Keeping Omar and Tlaib away from Israel is for the best. But, we have to hope the majority of Michigan and Minnesota voters won't be fooled by those two again, and will avoid casting ballots for them in the next Congressional election.

Trump will hopefully recognize Israeli sovereignty over Judea/Samaria

And Gaza too, now that I think of it, and no matter whether Hamas is overlording there or not. The Times of Israel reports that Netanyahu is asking Trump if he'll support recognition of Israel's historical birthright in Judea/Samaria:
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is seeking a public declaration from US President Donald Trump ahead of the September elections backing an Israeli move to extend its sovereignty over Jewish settlements in the West Bank, officials in the Prime Minister’s Office told Zman Yisrael, The Times of Israel’s Hebrew-language site, on Sunday.

While Netanyahu cannot himself take the far-reaching diplomatic step of extending Israeli sovereignty to the settlements while he is leading the current caretaker government, the Prime Minister’s Office is lobbying for public support from Trump for such a move. This would enable Netanyahu to credibly assure right-wing voters that he can and will move quickly to apply sovereignty to the settlements if he is again elected premier.
If this is so, it'd be very welcome, positive news. It'd also be another fine step in the right direction for the Trump administration.
