Palestinians: The Third Intifada Has Begun by Khaled Abu Toameh
Emboldened by the "victories," Abbas and Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal recently reached a secret agreement on the need to launch a "popular intifada" against Israel in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Their goal is to drag Israel into a confrontation with Palestinian civilians — one that would embarrass the Israelis among the international community and force them to capitulate.

Learn from our mistakes or face dramatic rise in antisemitism, European student union head warns
If North American Jews don’t learn from the mistakes of their European counterparts they will experience a dramatic increase in antisemitism and anti-Zionism, cautioned a community leader from Europe.
“You are us 30 years ago,” warned Deborah Abisror, executive director, European Union of Jewish Students (EUJS). “I hope that you will finally look at us and see what we did 30 years ago and not make the same mistakes that we made.”

CIA: Pollard got life sentence due to ‘Post’ interview
Newly declassified 1987 CIA damage assessment of the Jonathan Pollard case states that he violated plea bargain terms by giving interview to Wolf Blitzer in 'The Jerusalem Post.'
"Judge Aubrey Robinson sentenced Pollard to life in prison in March 1987 despite a plea agreement in which Pollard agreed to cooperate with the investigation against him, in return for a promise that he would not receive such a sentence."

Disgruntled Protestants Issue Ironic Jerusalem Declaration
"Protestants from three continents met in Jerusalem during November 5-8, 2012, to initiate a Protestant Consultation on Israel and the Middle East (PCIME). They subsequently issued a Jerusalem Declaration calling upon their churches to refrain from one-sided censure of Israel and to pay greater attention to the current miseries of Christians in such countries as Egypt, Syria and Iraq."

Barry Rubin: Egypt Democratically Adopts an Anti-Western Dictatorship (Constitution Referendum)
It isn’t that the constitution, as many Salafists would have liked, explicitly mandates a revolutionary Sharia state. Rather, the constitution sets up a framework that will allow the Brotherhood to do so. Between the president and the constitution, the Brotherhood will now march through every institution and remake it. Judges will be appointed; school curricula rewritten; army generals appointed; and so on. As the Brotherhood shows patience in carrying out this process of gaining total, permanent control, many in the West will interpret that as moderation.

The Region: Is Iron Dome anti-peace? by Barry Rubin
Following the logic of the 'Washington Post' we should hope lots of Israelis are killed by terrorists as a way to pressure those obdurate Israelis to make peace.
In other words, if a lot more Israelis were being killed and wounded, Israel would have more incentive to make peace with the Palestinians and Arabs. But since their lives are merely being paralyzed, Israel just isn’t interested in making peace.
And who is “debating” this? Well, basically the Post comes up with one name: left-wing author Tom Segev.

CAMERA: NYT Corrected E1 Falsehood. Will the Economist?
The Economist was yet another media outlet which falsely reported that E-1 construction between Jerusalem and Maaleh Adumim would bisect the West Bank.

BBC Watch: Examining another BBC theme from Operation ‘Pillar of Cloud’
One of the main themes created by the BBC during Operation ‘Pillar of Cloud’ – and still being promoted long after it – is the notion that the fighting between terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip and Israel began with the targeted assassination of Ahmed Jabari on November 14th.

Court Convicts Accessory to Fogel Murderers
Military court finds Yazed Awad guilty of sheltering murderers and preparing them for Shin Bet interrogations.
According to the charge sheet against him, Awad gave shelter to some of the people involved in the multiple murders and attempted to obstruct justice by briefing the suspects regarding Shin Bet interrogation techniques. In addition, he held two M-16 weapons that were stolen in the course of the murderous attack.

Hizbullah Accuses Israel of Explosion near Border
A huge explosion, apparently at a Hizbullah weapons depot, rocked Lebanon near the border Monday morning. Hizbullah blames Israel.
The United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) is responsible for maintaining security in the area, and it is investigating the blast, but Hizbullah cordoned off the area.
The explosion apparently was in an ammunition depot east of the port city of Tyre.

Turkey investigating at least five local Jews it claims aided IDF in Mavi Marmara affair
Representative of Turkish immigrants accuses Ankara of using Jewish community as leverage against Israel
Rafael Sadi, spokesperson for the Association of Turkish Immigrants in Israel, told Maariv that the Turkish authorities “are trying to intimidate the Jews” as well as to send Israel the message that if Turkish demands are not met, the Turkish Jewish community is liable to suffer the consequences.

'First we take Damascus, then Tel Aviv'
Salafist leader warns that once rebels topple Assad's regime they will set their sights on Israel; says 'We won't rest until Palestine is liberated'

Non-Jews Fly The Flag For Israel In South Australia
We see much of Aussie BDSers on videos of their Israel-demonising vigils targeting Max Brenner and Seacret, so it's refreshing to learn of antipodean initiatives on Israel's behalf. The following guest post by reader Shirlee tells of such a welcome development in Adelaide, and points out that the non-Jews involved deserve support from the Australian Jewish community.

Ido Cohen’s off-road empire
In his workshop near Haifa, a 4×4 maven and desert racer designs and manufactures Israeli vehicles for extreme conditions.
The Zibar took a decade to develop and was designed to withstand extremely harsh environmental conditions. The vehicles accelerate from zero to 62 miles per hour (100 km/h) in seven seconds, and last more than 435 miles (700 kilometers) on a single tank of gas.
“It’s the only vehicle you can drive in jungles — you can’t compare it with a Land Rover,” says Cohen. “If you want to drive anywhere off-road, no other car can compete with Zibar right now in the world, and a lot of people want to copy me.
