NETANYAHU TO ALLOW U.S. MUSLIM CONGRESSWOMAN TO ENTER ISRAEL ON CONDITION SHE REFRAINS FROM BDS ACTIVITY DURING HER VISIT

"Talk about being between a rock and a hard place"! Even for the embattled Jewish state, this was a completely new twist. PM Bibi Netanyahu had to choose between siding with President Donald Trump or with the US Congress. Now, amid a firestorm of criticism, a partial solution has been reached. Despite first agreeing that two Muslim anti-Israel congresswomen be allowed to come and launch an anti-Israeli binge, Bibi suddenly barred their entry following President Trump issuing a stern warning not to do so. As Trump put it, "It would show great weakness if Israel allowed representatives Omar and Tlaib to visit. They hate Israel and all Jewish people, and there's nothing that can be said or done to change their minds."

ISRAEL'S STAR WARS HITS IRANIAN "BULLSEYE"

At an altitude of 40,000 miles above the earth's surface, three Israeli Arrow rockets have destroyed simulated Iranian nuclear missiles. The test flights were conducted recently at the American missile test site at Kodiak Island in Alaska over a ten-day period. For the past three years, Israeli and American missile experts have been collaborating on a crash program, and with good reason. Iran has openly been developing ICBMs (intercontinental ballistic missiles), necessary for delivering nuclear warheads. (Somehow former US President Barack Obama "forgot" about this critical delivery system essential for atomic warheads). Meanwhile, Iran's fanatical Islamist leaders threaten daily to wipe Israel off the map.

ISRAEL AND ETHIOPIAN JEWS - WHAT WENT WRONG!

It was one of the most glowing chapters in the Jewish state's history, dating back 3,000 years. The Jewish community in Ethiopia, possibly the "lost tribe of Dan," was spirited out of the war-torn country of Ethiopia by Mossad agents on a dangerous trek to neighboring Sudan. From there, tens of thousands of men, women, and children boarded Israeli aircraft that flew them to safety in their ancestral home, Israel. Sadly, some of the aged, and even babies and the sick, did not make it but died along the way. Operations "Solomon" and "Moses" were a spectacular success. These Ethiopian Jews were welcomed with open arms by the people of Israel. They arrived with only the clothes on their backs, and a public campaign called on Israeli families to donate clothing. There was a wonderful response. Israel had again proven it was the homeland of the Jews, whatever color, whatever background.

EHUD BARAK MAY TOPPLE ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER BIBI NETANYAHU

It's still early, but Bibi Netanyahu's days as Prime Minister may soon be over. Netanyahu's nemesis, Ehud Barak, has just announced that he is entering Israel's current election campaign intending to defeat Netanyahu, who has dominated Israeli politics as long as most people can remember. At a Tel Aviv news conference.

Barak declared, "The time has come to topple Netanyahu, not to save him from criminal prosecution"! This Israeli Prime Minister is now facing three possible indictments for bribery and breach of trust. And Barak went on to say that this was Bibi's last moment to leave office and retire. "Do not try and drag the state through chaos in order to save yourself."

ISRAEL AND THE GULF CRISIS

How is Israel reaction to the current escalation between the US and Iran in the Gulf? Obviously, Israel is rooting for Trump, as are all the Arab states, which also fear Iran as a regional threat. But, at the same time, Israel is wary of being accused of egging on the US against the Ayatollahs in Tehran. The smart thing for Netanyahu to do was to order all political and military officials to keep their mouths shut. So far, they have. But there is no doubt that if Trump requested military or intelligence aid, Israel would hop to it.

ISRAEL'S ELECTION CRISIS - THE AFTERSHOCK

Political turmoil reigns supreme - in the hoopla of the April 9th election, Bibi Netanyahu was confident he was on his way to a record fifth term as Israel's Prime Minister. Even faced with three possible indictments for fraud he came out of the election, apparently, with a 65-seat overall majority in the 120-member Knesset; this was based on his own Likud party teaming up with other rightwing and religious parties in the 120-member Knesset. It seemed only a matter of hammering out individual agreements with his potential partners. No sweat - Bibi's a master negotiator.

TRUMP'S "MARSHALL PLAN" FOR MIDDLE EAST

At long last, US President Donald Trump will take the wraps off his "deal of the century" to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The date, June 24-25: the venue will be Bahrain in the Arab oil-rich Gulf. His special envoy, Jared Kushner, will present a novel peace package - my guess is it will resemble another historic American program "The Marshall Plan," initiated by President Harry Truman to rebuild war-torn western Europe after WWII. It was one of the most ingenious and humane economic plans in history that laid the groundwork for rebuilding the continent and even included Nazi Germany, the perpetrator of the devastation.

BERNIE SANDERS AND ISRAEL'S HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE

Another annual day of remembering the Holocaust has come and gone in Israel. As always, it was marked by a deeply moving ceremony on Jerusalem's Mount Herzl near the Holocaust Memorial Museum. Six survivors - three elderly women and men in their 80's and 90's bore witness to their harrowing experiences and recalled their family members who went up in smoke in the crematoria of Auschwitz and the other death camps or were murdered by the Nazis and their collaborators during WWII in Europe. And again, the incredible tales, seen through the eyes of the then very young children, some of them no more than toddlers.

THE RATIONALITY FOR NETANYAHU'S RE-ELECTION

How come Israel's Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu, who faces three indictments for fraud, has won an unprecedented fifth election? Just three days after election day Israeli jets reportedly launched another devastating airstrike on an Iranian missile facility inside Syria. Israel, as usual, did not acknowledge the attack that caused severe damage and killed several militants, possibly members of Iran's Revolutionary Guards. Netanyahu did make a statement: "Whoever threatens or endangers Israel, threatens or endangers themselves. Israel will respond with its power also to the north!"

ISRAELI ELECTION - POLLS INDICATE THAT ONLY A LAST MINUTE SURPRISE CAN PREVENT A NETANYAHU VICTORY

With election day coming on April 9, the polls showed that PM Netanyahu's Likud Party and the Blue and While of Benny Gantz were still locked in a neck-and-neck race. Amidst this fog of uncertainty, only one surprise development could swing the outcome for Gantz. With Election Day just hours away, one or two seas in the 120-member Knesset may determine who will get first chance at forming a new coalition government. Both Gantz and Bibi were floating around 30 Knesset seats and will require a coalition with other of the smaller parties.

ISRAELI ELECTION PREDICTION - IS NETANYAHU/GANTZ COALITION A REAL POSSIBILITY

With Election Day fast approaching on April 9, Netanyahu and Gantz are still running neck-and-neck. But, barring unforeseen circumstances, Bibi still has the best chance of forming another coalition because he can count on the other right-wing and religious parties to go over the required 61-seat majority in the 120-member Knesset.

ISRAELI ELECTION RACE - BIBI WILL WIN UNLESS ...!

In the Israeli election, set for April 9th, the polls show Benny Gantz is still leading, but Bibi Netanyahu is still the favorite to become the next Prime Minister. And why is that? Unless Gantz wakes up and shakes up the campaign, his Blue & While Party may win a couple of seats more than Likud, but he will not be able to forge a 61-seat majority in the 120-member Knesset.

NETANYAHU INDICTMENT ROCKS ISRAELI ELECTION CAMPAIGN

It was a long time coming, but it still hit the Jewish state like a bombshell. Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit has finally presented a 45-page indictment that would charge Prime Minister Netanyahu with three separate charges of bribery and breach of trust. These are grave offenses that could lead to a prison sentence. However, it's a long way from over - Israeli law entitles public officials to a pre-trial hearing before the Attorney General serves the indictment. (This is to prevent innocent public officials from being dragged into court by political rivals or wacky citizens.)

CALCULUS OF CURRENT ISRAELI ELECTION CAMPAIGN

"It's security, stupid!"

And how could it be otherwise? Consider the recent, horrific terror attack. Ori Ansbacher, a 19-year-old Israel woman, was walking in the outskirts of Jerusalem when she was attacked, raped, and stabbed to death by a Palestinian terrorist from the West Bank. The DNA of 29-year-old Arafat Arfiya was found at the site, leading to his arrest within 48 hours. Police say he has confessed and reenacted the crime.

BENNY GANTZ - ISRAEL'S NEXT PRIME MINISTER?

Remember the name - Benny Gantz. A former IDF Chief of Staff, Gantz has just rocked the current Israeli election campaign - voters go to the polls on April 9th. What's happened? For weeks Gantz, a soft-spoken former paratroop commander, standing 6'5 tall, ran a low key campaign. He barely spoke at all, for which he was lambasted by the media and by his political rivals, in particular, by Bibi's Likud supporters. Then, on the night of January 29th, Gantz took off the wraps at his party convention. The whole country was waiting to hear what Israel's "Forest Gump" had to say finally. It turned out to be a blockbuster! Speaking quietly to his enthralled supporters and the nation, Gantz hauled Netanyahu over the coals. He compared Bibi's administration to that of the corrupt French Monarch Louis XIV - "The state? I am the State!". Bibi, now facing four investigations and possible indictment, had veered from the "straight and narrow" and the country was paying the price.

IRAN & ISRAEL GO TO THE BRINK

Is it now Iran's call? For the first time, Iranian forces in Syria have attacked Israel by launching a missile at a target inside of Israeli territory - the winter resort at Mt. Hermon. Fortunately, for the thousands of Israelis in the area, and indeed even for the Iranian personnel stationed in Syria, Israel's Iron Dome Defense intercepted and shot down the Iranian missile. For, if it had landed and killed Israelis, it would have triggered a full-blown war with the Iranian forces in Syria.
