Why the success of Israel’s strategy to silence critics is far from assured – Middle East Eye

| February 16, 2021

As Joe Biden prepared to take office as the new US president last month, mainstream US Jewish organisations sent him a letter urging him to follow his predecessors and adopt the 2016 International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of antisemitism as the operative one for US government agencies, which the State Department had already done since the Obama years. This uniform US Jewish organisational support for the IHRA definition contrasts with the fact that US Jews are divided over it. The IHRA definition deems the targeting of the state of Israel, conceived as a Jewish collectivity and denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, egby claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavour to be antisemitic

| February 16, 2021

Otzma Yehudit leader Itamar Ben-Gvir will not be a minister in the next government, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Wednesday, after helping the far-right party repeatedly. Ben-Gvir is the leader of Otzma Yehudit, established by students of Rabbi Meir Kahane, who was banned from running for the Knesset in 1988 due to incitement to racism against Arabs. Netanyahus statement came a day after he repeated his promise that Nael Zoabi, the first-ever Arab-Muslim candidate in Likud and his personal appointee to the 39th place on the list, would be Minister for Advancement of Arab Society, even if he does not make it into the Knesset

| February 16, 2021

The Reform Movement in Israel has threatened to file a petition with the High Court of Justice if Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael Jewish National Fund moves ahead with plans to purchase private Palestinian property for settlement construction.KKL-JNFs executive committee approved a proposal on Sunday for such a program after a vote in the body was tied six votes to six.Due to a clause in the coalition agreement in Octobers World Zionist Congress which discounts the vote of a KKL-JNF executive committee member from the center-left, liberal bloc in case of an even vote, the proposal to buy the land was approved.KKL-JNFs directorate now needs to vote to approve the decision, although the organizations chairman Avraham Duvdevani and deputy Shlomo Deri promised during Sundays meeting that no vote would be scheduled before the upcoming national elections on March 23.Director of the Reform Movement in Israel and currently fourth-placed candidate on the Labor Party electoral list Rabbi Gilad Kariv said the proposals threatened the very existence of the so-called National Institutions as well as KKL-JNF itself.The far rights attempt to takeover KKL-JNF is only at its beginning and we are determined to block it via public, political and judicial means, said Kariv, adding that any decision by the KKL-JNF board to approve the plans would be challenged in the High Court.Merkaz Olami, the political arm of the Masorti-Conservative movement in the National Institutions, also spoke out against the plans to buy land in the West Bank, saying similarly it would damage the KKLs legitimacy amongst Jews in the Diaspora who do not support the settlements but are part of KKLs activities and financially support the institution. cnxps.cmd.push(function () { cnxps({ playerId: '36af7c51-0caf-4741-9824-2c941fc6c17b' }).render('4c4d856e0e6f4e3d808bbc1715e132f6'); });
