IRAN IS IN EZEKIEL 38, BUT WHY NOT THEIR PROXIES? WHY ARE SYRIA, HEZBOLLAH AND THE HOUTHIS MISSING IN ACTION?
By Bill Salus – email@example.com –
The focus of this article is the identification of WHO IS and WHO IS NOT, part of Ezekiel 38-39. Having identified WHO IS part of the action in Ezekiel 38-39, now let’s observe who appears to be MISSING IN ACTION (MIA).

GREENBLATT TELLS TOI: US WON’T PROPOSE ISRAEL-JORDAN-PALESTINIAN CONFEDERATION
Trump’s envoy says impending peace plan will be ‘heavily focused on Israeli security needs’ but will also aim to be ‘fair to the Palestinians’
By RAPHAEL AHREN – October 8, 2018 – Assistant to the President and Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt, left, meets Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the Prime Minister’s Office in Jerusalem, June 20, 2017. (Kobi Gideon/GPO)
The US administration’s forthcoming peace proposal does not call for a tripartite confederation consisting of Israel, Palestine and Jordan, Jason Greenblatt, President Donald Trump’s special envoy for international negotiations, said.
“We’re not looking at a confederation model,” Greenblatt told The Times of Israel during a recent meeting in New York.
Last month, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said Greenblatt and Trump’s senior adviser Jared Kushner asked him about his view of such a confederation.
Speaking to The Times of Israel on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly, Greenblatt declined to provide detailed information about the administration’s peace plan, but agreed to give a broad outline.
“It will include a resolution to all of the core issues, including the refugee issue, and will also focus on Israel’s security concerns,” he said. In fact, he added, the proposal will “be heavily focused on Israeli security needs.”
ADELSON DROPS TENS OF MILLIONS MORE TO SAVE THE GOP CONGRESS
By Mark Schumacher – October 12, 2018 – Politico
Las Vegas casino mogul Sheldon Adelson is pumping tens of millions of dollars more into Republican Party coffers in an 11th-hour push to save their congressional majorities, according to two senior Republicans familiar with the donation.
The contributions were made to a pair of GOP super PACs tied to congressional Republicans, Senate Leadership Fund and Congressional Leadership Fund. They are expected to be reported in public filings with the Federal Election Commission by Oct. 15.
The figures would almost certainly make Adelson, a close ally of President Donald Trump, the biggest GOP donor of the 2018 election cycle. Even before his most recent contributions, the 85-year-old mogul and his wife Miriam had given $25 million to the Senate super PAC and $30 million to the House super PAC.
The move comes as Democrats dominate the TV airwaves. The party has been buoyed by a turbocharged small-donor base that’s flooded House candidates with millions of dollars in contributions. On top of that, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has pledged to spend $80 million in the final weeks leading up to the midterm election, the vast majority of it to help Democrats seize control of the House.

HAMAS AGREES TP CURB GAZA BORDER VIOLENCE TO FACILITATE TRUCE WITH ISRAEL
October 18, 2018 – (Worthy News) – Hamas has decided to scale back the violent weekly protests along Gaza’s border with Israel in an effort to bring down the number of casualties among the protesters, the London-based Arabic-language newspaper Al-Hayat reported Thursday.
A Palestinian source in the Gaza Strip told Al-Hayat that the organization had made its decision after being pressured by a delegation of senior Egyptian intelligence officials that arrived in Gaza on Tuesday to mediate a cease-fire agreement between Israel and the Gaza rulers. The decision was made before two long-range rockets were fired from Gaza into Israel Wednesday, one of which demolished a family home in Beersheba.
JAMAL KHASHOGGI CHEERED HAMAS’ WAR ON ISRAEL
October 18, 2018 – Daniel Greenfield – If you get your news from the media, then you will have heard that Jamal Khashoggi was a heroic reform who sought freedom for the region, and was brutally murdered to the strains of hip-hop music by a legion of Saudi assassins. And it was all recorded on his Apple Watch.
If you’re interested in the facts, instead of the fake news, you probably already know that Jamal Khashoggi was a Muslim Brotherhood leader an an old friend of Osama bin Laden.
He’s being mourned by the media that backed the Muslim Brotherhood. And, as Jordan Schachtel has dug up, he quite clearly supported the Hamas war on Israel. Not surprising as Hamas is a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood.
AIPAC UNDERSCORES COMMITMENT TO TWO-STATE SOLUTION
Statement comes after Trump said proposal for peace between Israel, Palestinians will be ready by January
By JTA – October 19, 2018 – WASHINGTON — The American Israel Public Affairs Committee reemphasized its support for a two-state solution on Thursday as the Trump administration nears completion of a peace proposal that might stop short of recommending the establishment of a Palestinian state.
“AIPAC remains fully supportive of direct negotiations leading to a two-state solution — a Jewish state of Israel living in peace with a demilitarized Palestinian state,” the lobby said on Twitter and attached to the tweet its talking points on the two-state outcome.

PALESTINIANS ARREST US CITIZEN FOR HELPING ARAB SELL HOUSE TO JEWS
The Palestinian Authority arrested an American citizen who assisted an Arab in the sale of a Jerusalem residence to Jewish buyers.
By JNS.org – October 20, 2018 – A Palestinian-American citizen’s family reached out to the U.S. State Department for help after being arrested by Palestinian Authority security forces for his role in selling an Arab-owned house in the Old City of Jerusalem to Jews.
According to a report by The Jerusalem Post, the man, a 55-year-old resident of Bethlehem who had worked for the P.A. Ministry for Local Government, was charged by the P.A. of facilitating an arrangement between the Arab owner of a house who wished to sell and a Jewish organization that wanted to buy.
No comment has been issued by the Palestinian Authority.
The accused man is said to have received a $25,000 commission for his role in the sale between an Arab widow in the Muslim Quarter and the Jewish organization.
ISRAELI FARMERS DISTRESSED AS JORDAN DECLARES INTENTION TO RECLAIM LAND
Arava Regional Council Head Eyal Bloom implored the prime minister to intervene on behalf of the farmers who worked the lands leased from Jordan.
October 22, 2018 – By Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News – If Jordan reclaims the land it leased to Israel 24 years ago, it will cause serious damage to the state’s security as well as destroy dozens of farmers’ livelihood, warned Eyal Bloom, Central Arava Regional Council head, on Monday.
“This means the collapse of 30 farms on an area of ??1,400 dunams [346 acres],” Bloom said. “I call upon the Prime Minister of Israel to resolve this crisis immediately. Since, apart from the importance of the land for agriculture, it constitutes a buffer between the settled areas of the Arava and the State of Jordan and due to their location they are critical for the security of the region and the state.” https://worldisraelnews.com/israeli-farmers-distressed-as-jordan-declares-intention-to-reclaim-land/
PROPHECY “JORDAN CANCELS PEACE TREATY DEAL WITH ISRAEL”
Paul Begley – Published on Oct 22, 2018
King Abdullah has cancelled a 25 year Peace Deal with Israel over Land
JORDAN SAYS IT WON’T RENEW PEACE TREATY LAND DEAL WITH ISRAEL
October 22, 2018 | Published in: Israel, Jordan, Middle East, News
Jordan said on Sunday it would not extend the 25-year deal that allows Israel to use two tracts of territory along its border just as Israel said it was still planning to negotiate an extension. Much of the land in Baquora in the northwestern part of the kingdom and Ghumar in the south is used by Israeli farmers, some of whom were given private land ownership rights and special travel rights under a 1994 peace treaty between the two countries.
The agreement will expire next year.
King Abdullah has been under increasing public pressure to end the arrangements with Israel. He told senior Jordanian politicians the kingdom wanted to exercise its “full sovereignty” over the two areas, Petra state news agency said.
“These are Jordanian lands and they will remain..” the monarch said. In an “era of regional turmoil” his kingdom -sandwiched between Syria to the north, Iraq to the east and Israel to its west – Jordan wanted to protect its “national interests,” Abdullah said.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, speaking after Abdullah’s comments on Sunday, acknowledged that Jordan wanted to exercise its option to end the arrangement. But he said Israel “will enter negotiations with it on the possibility of extending the current arrangement”.

FOR PALESTINIANS, SELLING LAND TO A JEW IS PUNISHABLE BY DEATH
By Shmuley Boteach – OCTOBER 22, 2018 – Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas addressing the UN General Assembly on September 27, 2018.
After the barbaric story we have all followed of Jamal Khashoggi and his horrific murder at the hands of admitted Saudi agents, we can see a growing campaign on the part of Middle Eastern governments to intimidate, frighten, and ultimately neutralize prominent critics. This sometimes includes the less barbaric, but likewise criminal attempt to cut people’s reputations into pieces in order to terrify them into silence. The United States must take strong action to protect its citizens and residents from Middle Eastern governments that wish to silence them.
Unfortunately, numerous worldwide governments have failed this test, routinely apprehending the very citizens they are meant to protect before meting out brutal interrogations or extraditing them to criminal states.
During World War II, Nazi Germany dispatched secret police forces to hunt down known or suspected dissidents — a tactic aptly termed Nacht und Nebel (Night and Fog) to describe the darkness that surrounded the victims’ sudden disappearance. During the Cold War, the Soviet Union earned a brutal reputation for summoning or detaining men and women only for them to then disappear forever.
Argentina’s military juntas were especially notorious for their practice of putting detained citizens aboard aircraft and casting them into the sea. It is thought that between 1976 and 1983, up to 30,000 people were killed or disappeared this way, earning them one of history’s most haunting names: Los Desaparecidos — “the disappeared.” In Iran, this seems to be a problem on repeat: following riots in 1999, 2003, 2009, and even this year, hundreds of Iranian protesters — most of them students — were detained, with dozens yet to be so much as located. https://www.algemeiner.com/2018/10/22/for-palestinians-selling-land-to-a-jew-is-punishable-by-death/
ISRAEL SAYS MACRON WILL UNVEIL PEACE PLAN IF TRUMP DOESN’T
A top Israeli official revealed that Jerusalem believes Macron will release his plan for an Israeli-Palestinian agreement if Trump does not produce his long-awaited deal-of-the-century plan within a few weeks.
By The Algemeiner – October 23, 2018
An Israeli Foreign Ministry official told a Knesset committee earlier this week that if US President Donald Trump did not present an Israeli-Palestinian peace plan within a few weeks after the upcoming Nov. 6 midterm elections, French President Emmanuel Macron would likely unveil a diplomatic initiative of his own, Channel 10 reported on Tuesday.
Alon Ushpiz, the Foreign Ministry’s director of diplomacy, also revealed that Israel was not aware of the details of Trump’s long-awaited proposal.
According to the report, which cited two Knesset members who attended Monday’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee meeting, Ushpiz cautioned that a Democratic takeover of the House of Representatives would significantly change the atmosphere in Washington vis-à-vis Israel.
“Things will not be the same as before,” he was quoted as saying. “There will be consequences for Israel. What has happened until now since Trump’s entry into the White House will not continue, and we need to prepare for this.”
BREAKING – TRUMP ADMINISTRATION TERMINATES 1955 TREATY WITH IRAN!
HERE IT COMES: THE MIDDLE EAST PEACE PLAN
Gary – October 22, 2018 – For decades every U.S. president in collusion with their European counterparts have attempted to push through a “two-state solution” in the Middle East that would divide the Holy Land between a Jewish west and a Palestinian east. There have been “high marks”, so to speak, particularly the 1993 Oslo Accords during Clinton’s first term, but everything, so far, has been a hit and a miss.
No doubt that all of these unsuccessful attempts have had several things in common: They were based on the unworkable 1967 borders—Israel would never agree. Almost all Arab neighbors were opposed to any Israeli demands (recognition of a Jewish State, defensible borders, no Palestinian right of return, etc) They generally required Israel to give up a lot more than the Palestinians, although Israel had a significant upper hand in terms of military might and thus could “veto” any undesirable requests Most importantly, they always required both sides—Israel and the Palestinian Authority—to agree. “The Ultimate Deal”, as Trump calls it, has been perpetually unfeasible, but not just for the four reasons cited above. The bigger reason that outweighs them all is that this deal plays a central role in end time prophecy and without God allowing it to proceed in His permissive will, it will never happen.
WHY IS THIS DEAL SO IMPORTANT TO BIBLE PROPHECY?
I’ll start with the simple fact that God made an everlasting covenant with Abraham, endowing him and his descendants with the Holy Land as an everlasting possession. This means that God’s own Name, honor, and truthfulness are at stake in regards to upholding this covenant promise:
“ I will establish my covenant as an everlasting covenant between me and you and your descendants after you for the generations to come, to be your God and the God of your descendants after you. The whole land of Canaan, where you now reside as a foreigner, I will give as an everlasting possession to you and your descendants after you; and I will be their God. “

WHITE HOUSE: THE PRESIDENT JUST SIGNED THIS LAW TO ISOLATE HEZBOLLAH
By: R. Mitchell in Trump Administration, White House Watch – October 25, 2018
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders issued a statement late Thursday saying that President Donald Trump had signed a law that will isolate Hizbollah (Hezbollah) from the international banking system.
Full Text of Secretary Sanders Statement on the Hizballah Isolation Law.
Today, President Donald J. Trump signed into law the Hizballah International Financing Prevention Amendments Act (HIFPAA) of 2018, which imposes additional hard-hitting sanctions on Hizballah, a radical Islamist terrorist organization and close partner and proxy of the Iranian regime. Hizballah has kidnapped, tortured, and murdered American citizens, including in its brutal attack in 1983 on our Marine Barracks in Beirut, Lebanon, which killed 241 American Marines, Sailors, and Soldiers, wounded 128 other American service members, and killed a Lebanese civilian. Another bombing against the French barracks killed 58 French peacekeepers and five Lebanese civilians.
This evening, President Trump commemorated the 35th anniversary of the attack in Beirut on the Marine Barracks with survivors and family members of the victims. The United States will never forget the precious lives lost that day, and will continue to honor their memory by taking action against their murderers. Under President Trumps leadership, the United States has imposed historic sanctions on Hizballah and its chief ally: the corrupt Iranian regime. This past year, we levied more sanctions on Hizballah than we have imposed on the organization in any other year. Additionally, on November 5th, all United States nuclear-related sanctions against Iran, lifted under the horrible, one-sided Iran nuclear deal, will be reimposed in full force.

PRESIDENT TRUMP, WHAT TWO-STATE SOLUTION ARE WE TALKING ABOUT?
October 26, 2018 – Prophecy News – video – The PLO chose the United Nations fantasyland to push its agenda in preference to negotiating with Israel. Trump sent Ronald Lauder to Jordan. Four major developments in the past week have heightened expectations that President Trump will have no option but to call on Jordan and Israel to negotiate the allocation of sovereignty between their two respective States in the ‘West Bank’ and Gaza – 5% of the territory comprised in the 1922 League of Nations Mandate for Palestine (Mandate) . Jordan and Israel are the two successor States to the Mandate currently exercising sovereignty in the other 95% of the Mandate territory – Jordan 78%, Israel 17%. Jordan-Israel negotiations – if successfully concluded – would complete the two-state solution first contemplated under article 25 of the Mandate. Arab and Jewish claims to the Mandate territory would be finally resolved. Cont’d: https://www.endtime.com/prophecy-news/president-trump-what-two-state-solution-are-we-talking-about/
[…] # 4. This was Trump’s response to the UN’s embrace of the “State of Palestine”.President Trump sent World Jewish Congress President Ronald Lauder as his personal envoy to Jordan. Lauder’s visit reportedly occurred without the knowledge of Israel or Trump’s Special Middle East Negotiators – Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt.
Jordan received $690 million in US aid in 2018 – to be boosted by a 27% increase for each of the next five years. Lauder would have reminded Jordan’s King Abdullah that Trump’s policy could see this aid reduced if Jordan refuses to negotiate with Israel. King Abdullah gave Israel twelve months’ notice of Jordan’s intention to not renew twenty-five year leases of two areas denoted as “Special Regimes” in the Israel-Jordan peace Treaty.
Israel is entitled to request that consultations be entered into – as Israel undoubtedly will – since Israeli private land ownership rights and property interests are affected in one area and Israeli private land use rights in the other. These Special Regimes would become important bargaining chips in Jordan–Israel negotiations on the ‘West Bank’ and Gaza over the next 12 months. Any Trump peace proposal not requiring direct Jordan – Israel negotiations will be dead in the water from the get-go. Cont’d: http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Articles/Article.aspx/22917
TRUMP ENVOY TO VISIT ISRAEL NEXT WEEK FOR TALKS ON PEACE PLAN
White House says Jason Greenlatt’s trip part of the Trump administration’s ‘commitment to productive engagement’

The Trump administration’s envoy to the Israeli-Palestinian peace process will travel to Israel next week to meet with officials, as the White House prepares to release its peace plan and attempts to calm the situation at the Gaza border. “I can confirm that Special Representative Jason Greenblatt will be traveling to Israel this coming week,” a White House official told The Times of Israel on Thursday. “This trip reflects the administration’s commitment to productive engagement, as well as the value it places on understanding the situation on the ground, especially amid recent tensions.” Greenblatt’s agenda is not yet clear, but he is likely to meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, though not with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.
US TO REVEAL ‘DEAL OF THE CENTURY’ TO ISRAEL NEXT WEEK
October 27, 2018 – Published in: Asia & Americas, Israel, Middle East, News, Palestine, US – Israeli public radio said on Friday that the US administration would reveal the details of its “Deal of the Century” to Israel next week.
US President Donald Trump’s envoy to the Middle East, Jason Greenblatt, is scheduled to travel to the region to meet with Israeli officials and reveal the details of the US plan, Quds Press reported. The so-called ‘Deal of the Century’ is claimed by Trump’s Administration to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict but has been seen as a way to push the Palestinians to make concessions. The relocation of the US embassy to Jerusalem was thought to be just one part of the plan.
OPINION: AMERICA WANTS TO ANNUL THE LEGITIMATE PALESTINIAN RIGHT TO RETURN
The Palestinian Authority (PA), along with all Palestinian factions, have voiced their rejection to the Deal. They condemned the relocation of the US embassy to Jerusalem and President Trump’s announcement that the city would act as the united capital of Israel.. The Deal is thought to aim to set up a regional alliance, including Israel and the Arab states, to fight those countries which reject US and Israeli policies in the Middle East, Quds Press said. https://www.middleeastmonitor.com/20181027-us-to-reveal-deal-of-the-century-to-israel-next-week/
OMAN SAYS TIME TO ACCEPT ISRAEL IN REGION, OFFERS HELP FOR PEACE
October 27, 2018 – Published in: Israel, Middle East, News, Oman, Palestine – Oman described Israel as an accepted Middle East state on Saturday, a day after hosting a surprise visit by its prime minister that Washington said could help regional peace efforts. Oman is offering ideas to help Israel and the Palestinians to come together but is not acting as mediator, Yousuf bin Alawi bin Abdullah, the sultanate’s minister responsible for foreign affairs, told a security summit in Bahrain.
“Israel is a state present in the region, and we all understand this,” bin Alawi said.
His comments followed a rare visit to Oman by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu which came days after Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas paid a three-day visit to the Gulf country. Both leaders met with Oman’s Sultan Qaboos.
“We are not saying that the road is now easy and paved with flowers, but our priority is to put an end to the conflict and move to a new world,” bin Alawi told the summit.
Oman is relying on the United States and efforts by President Donald Trump in working towards the “deal of the century”, he added. Bahrain’s foreign minister Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa voiced support for Oman over the sultanate’s role in trying to secure Israeli-Palestinian peace, while Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister Adel al-Jubeir said the kingdom believes the key to normalising relations with Israel was the peace process.

OPINION – THE OMANI SULTAN WELCOMES NETANYAHU TO THE ’22 ARAB STATES CLUB’
It seems as if Arab states were more open to Israel than to the Palestinians, who are often told ‘you already have 22 states!’ But Israel will remain a pariah in the eyes of simple folk in the Arab world as long as it holds the Palestinians behind bars
NETANYAHU ROUNDS UP OFFICIAL VISIT TO OMAN
October 27, 2018 – Published in: Israel – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has rounded up a secret visit to the Sultanate of Oman after receiving an invitation by its Sultan, Arab 48 reported on Friday.
Netanyahu’s wife Sara, Chief of Israeli intelligence agency Mossad Yossi Cohen and other senior Israeli officials accompanied the Prime Minister during his visit, which followed a similar – but overt – visit by Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas that took place on Monday.
On Twitter, Netanyahu said that the visit to the Arab sultanate came after an invitation was made by Sultan Qaboos following lengthy contacts between Omani and Israeli authorities. “It was an important step towards reinforcing ties with the countries in the region,” Netanyahu said.
PA SLAMS NETANYAHU’S ‘STATE-MINUS, AUTONOMY-PLUS’ SOLUTION
Meanwhile, Oman confirmed the news about Netanyahu’s visit, with the official Omani TV Channel broadcasting footage of him shaking hands with Qaboos. Omani TV explained that the visit aimed to discuss plans to push forward the stalled peace process between Israel and the Palestinians, in addition to discussing a number of issues of common interest.
OMAN, DAY AFTER NETANYAHU VISIT: WE ARE VERY OPTIMISTIC ABOUT TRUMP’S PEACE PLAN
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited Oman, which neighbors Iran and has no diplomatic relations with Israel. ‘Israel is a state present in this region and we all understand this,’ Oman’s minister responsible for foreign affairs said.
Reuters and Haaretz – Oct 27, 2018
Oman is offering ideas to help Israel and the Palestinians to come together but is not acting as mediator, Yousuf bin Alawi bin Abdullah, the sultanate’s minister responsible for foreign affairs said on Saturday.

ABBAS: TRUMP OFFERED US PEACE PLAN BASED ON CONFEDERATION WITH JORDAN
“I want a three-party confederation with Jordan and Israel and I am asking Israel to accept such a proposal,” Abbas was quoted as saying.
BY TOVAH LAZAROFF, KHALED ABU TOAMEH – Jerusalem Post – SEPTEMBER 2, 2018
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas speaks during a news conference following the extraordinary meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Istanbul, Turkey.
The United States presented Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas with a peace deal based on a confederation with Jordan, the Israeli left-wing organization Peace Now reported on Sunday.
The group publicized the possibility of a US-led confederation peace plan after it met with the PA leader in Ramallah.
Jordan immediately rejected the idea of a Palestinian-Jordanian confederation, and said the proposal was a non-starter.
Shaqued Morag from ‘Peace Now’ meets with Mahmoud Abbas.
Jumana Ghunaimat, spokeswoman for the Jordanian government, said Sunday that her country’s position toward the Palestinian cause remains unchanged and firm, and is based on the two-state solution, with the establishment of a Palestinian state on the 1967 borders and east Jerusalem as its capital.
Ghunaimat noted that Jordan’s King Abdullah II has long affirmed there is no alternative to the two-state solution.
No video or audio clip was released from the meeting. All of the information regarding Abbas’s statements on the Trump plan was reported by Peace Now and the two parliamentarians who were present, MKs Mossi Raz (Meretz) and Ksenia Svetlova (Zionist Union).
In the meeting, Abbas referred to a conversation he had with US envoys Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt. The envoys “asked me whether I believed in a confederation with Jordan. I said, ‘yes,’ [but] I want a triangular confederation with Jordan and Israel,” Abbas said. He added rhetorically, “I asked [the envoys] if the Israelis would accept such a proposal.”
The Prime Minister’s Office had no response to a Jerusalem Post query on the matter.
Jason Greenblatt, the president’s chief envoy to the peace process, declined to confirm or deny Abbas’s claims.
”Over the past 19 months we have probed all relevant parties about many ideas and possibilities,” Greenblatt said in a statement.
‘Fatwa’ reveals plans to ‘act against interests of their own people’
Sept 1, 2018 – Some Muslims living in East Jerusalem say they want to vote in the coming Jerusalem municipal elections to have a voice in bettering their own communities and situations. And officials in Jerusalem, under Israeli jurisdiction, say there’s no reason they shouldn’t. Except that Muslim officials have ordered the residents not to vote through a “fatwa,” a nonbinding but authoritative legal opinion.
It’s because Muslim leaders want their people to continue to be at odds with Israel, according to Bassam Tawil, a Muslim Arab based in the Middle East who writes for the Gatestone Institute.
“Palestinian leaders and their religious clerics do not want to see Arabs live a comfortable life under Israel,” he wrote.
“They are afraid that the world would see that Arabs can have a good life under Israeli sovereignty. They are also afraid that Palestinians living under the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank and Hamas in the Gaza Strip will start envying the Arabs living in Israel – and then demand from their leaders similar conditions,” he writes.
THE BAD NEWS: ISAEL-HAMAS DEAL STALLS – THE GOOD NEWS: NO ONE WANTS ANOTHER WAR
Netanyahu signals he seeks a Hamas deal without a prisoner exchange ¦ Trump makes momentous declarations without considering the consequences
Analysis – Amos Harel – Sep 16, 2018 […] The main obstacle to a deal is now more Palestinian than Israeli, in the form of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. The United Nations and Egypt can create an alternative route for the delivery of fuel to Gaza (currently, it comes by way of the Palestinian Authority), with Qatari funding, but they are having a hard time organizing a comprehensive method to transfer funds for rehabilitation of the Strip that will bypass Abbas completely. Abbas, for his part, is concerned that any arrangement reached in the Strip will pave the way for what remains of the “deal of the century” touted by U.S. President Donald Trump – long-term rehabilitation and quiet for Hamas in Gaza, a measure of economic relief for the PA in the West Bank, and the systematic erosion of the Palestinian demands in negotiations for a final-status agreement.
Accordingly, efforts to reach a broader arrangement appear to be bogged down for now, and the PA and Hamas are unable to achieve the reconciliation that Egypt views as essential for such a comprehensive agreement. The bad news is that the momentum that existed in mid-August in both Israel-Hamas and PA-Hamas talks, after the most recent exchanges of blows between Israel and Hamas, has apparently faded. The relatively good news? No one is yet rushing into war.
In the meantime, the Trump administration is stepping up its pressure on the Palestinians via a series of economic and declarative measures: cutting off funding for UNRWA, the UN refugee agency; backtracking on recognition of the Palestinians as refugees; slashing $200 million in annual U.S. support for projects within the territory controlled by the PA; cutting $25 million from aid to East Jerusalem hospitals; and, the latest measure, shutting down the offices of the Palestine Liberation Organization in Washington.

Analysis – Chemi Shalev – Sep 17, 2018 – These are some of the events concerning Israel that have recently made headlines in the U.S. and the West: Paul Manafort reveals an Israeli accomplice to his Ukrainian dirty tricks; the prime minister’s spokesperson stands accused of serial sexual harassment, a charge downplayed and ignored by the Israeli ambassador to Washington; the universally-opposed impending evacuation of Bedouin outpost Khan al-Ahmar in the West Bank; humanitarian crisis in Gaza and massive bloodshed on its fence; wild cheers for Donald Trump’s harsh measures against the Palestinians; the nation-state law and anti-democratic legislation; political filtering of critics at the airport; and a prime minister mired in corruption charges who James Comey’s his police chief for taking his job too seriously.
And so on and so forth, for the list is long. Israelis may still believe they are a chosen and embattled people, a light unto start-up nations, a paragon of morality and virtue and the most unfairly maligned country on the face of the earth, but Israel is having an increasingly hard time convincing anyone who is not a right-wing ideologue or Evangelical believer of these supposedly self-evident truths. For all the rest, in varying degrees, Israel’s stature has steadily deteriorated from good to bad to worse.
ISRAEL IS GIVING CHINA THE KEYS TO ITS LARGEST PORT – AND THE U.S. NAVY MAY ABANDON ISRAEL
China will operate Haifa port, near Israel’s alleged nuclear-armed submarines, and it seems no one in Israel thought about the strategic ramifications

Shaul Horev dropped a bombshell, but hardly anyone noticed. Horev, an Israel Defense Forces reservist brigadier general who has served, among other posts, as the navy chief of staff and chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission, is currently director of the Research Center for Maritime Policy and Strategy at the University of Haifa. At the end of August, the center held a conference, to which participants from the United States were invited, to examine security issues relating to Israel and the Mediterranean region.
In an interview with the religious-Zionist media outlet Arutz Sheva, Prof. Horev noted that one topic that came up at the event was Chinese investments in Mediterranean ports, and in Israel in particular. Pointing out that a Chinese company will soon start operating Haifa Port, he said that Israel needs to create a mechanism that will examine Chinese investments to ensure that they do not put Israel’s security interests at risk.
“When China acquires ports,” Horev said, “it does so under the guise of maintaining a trade route from the Indian Ocean via the Suez Canal to Europe, such as the port of Piraeus in Greece. Does an economic horizon like this have a security impact? We are not weighing that possibility sufficiently. One of the senior American figures at the conference raised the question of whether the U.S. Sixth Fleet can see Haifa as a home port. In light of the Chinese takeover, the question is no longer on the agenda.”
ABBAS PLOTTING WAYS TO THWART TRUMPS PALESTINIAN IMPOSITION
In a document distributed to guests whose copy was obtained by Channel 10, the Palestinians said the meeting would focus on countering threats to the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict posed by the expansion of Israeli settlements in the West Bank.
Another point will be to formulate ways to protect U.N. agencies dealing with Palestinian issues, such as UNRWA and the Human Rights Council, as well as to promote steps that would advance peace talks ba
