    Israel Denies Entry to Equipment to be Gifted by India to Palestine University
    All India | Press Trust of India | Updated: October 12, 2015

    President Pranab Mukherjee will be in Palestine on the second leg of his three-nation historic visit to West Asia.

    Jerusalem, Israel: A controversy erupted today with Israel unlikely to permit entry of four communication systems to a university in Palestine as part of IT equipment to be gifted by President Pranab Mukherjee to the Al-Quds educational institution.

    President Mukherjee is scheduled to inaugurate the state of the art Information Technology Centre at Al-Quds University tomorrow and the four communication systems are its crucial components.

    While Israeli customs today cleared the passage of 30 computers which were stuck at the Ashdod port to be moved to the university, the communication systems remained at Ben Gurion airport. It is unlikely to be allowed inside the IT Centre.

    Israeli sources sought to downplay the controversy saying that their law doesn't permit for the same.

    "Like Indian laws do not permit satellite phones being carried into their territory, there are technical issues around frequencies involved in the communication systems that do not pass our legal requirements," they said.

    Mr Mukherjee is also to be conferred an honorary doctorate from Al-Quds University.

    The University is caught in current clashes between Palestinians and Jewish visitors, which have been going on since September after Israel banned the Al Aqsa mosque, the third holiest site of Islam located in the compound of Temple Mount/Haram al-Sharif site also revered by Jews.

    The new controversy came close on the heels of a much publicised objection from Israel to Mr Mukherjee's visit to the Al-Aqsa mosque, given the tense security situation in the region.

    President Mukherjee will be in Palestine on the second leg of his three-nation historic visit to West Asia that will also take him to Israel. India has always been a leading partner in educational support and cooperation to Palestine.

    Hundreds of scholarships are given to Palestinian students under the Indian Technical and Economic Cooperation (ITEC) programme to enable them to take up professional programmes in universities across India.

    He concluded his visit to Jordan yesterday where President Mukherjee was honoured with a doctorate in political science for his 50 years of exemplary service to the Indian people and mankind in general by the University of Jordan.

    Israeli, Palestinian violence flares along Gaza border | Reuters

    http://www.firstpost.com/world/isra...rs-2765514.html?utm_source=FP_CAT_LATEST_NEWS

    GAZA Violence erupted along the Israel-Gaza border on Wednesday as Israeli forces and Palestinian militants exchanged fire and Israeli war jets bombed targets in the enclave, ruled by the Islamist Hamas group.


    There were no immediate reports of any casualties in the rare flare-up along the frontier, which has been largely quiet since a 2014 war.

    The outbreak of violence coincided with work by the Israeli military to uncover tunnels being built by Gaza militants which Israel fears could be used to infiltrate its territory. The Palestinians fired mortar bombs at Israeli forces operating near the border fence, prompting fire from Israeli tanks and war planes that bombed open areas in the northern and southern sectors of the Gaza Strip. "Our efforts to destroy the Hamas terror tunnel network, a grave violation of Israel's sovereignty, will not cease or be deterred," said military spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel PeterLerner.The Hamas armed wing, Izz el-Deen Al-Qassam Brigades, said the raid was a violation of the 2014 ceasefire and demanded that Israel pull out its forces "immediately"."The enemy must not make pretexts and must leave Gaza immediately, they should deal with their fears and concerns outside the separation line," said the group.

    On Tuesday Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu inspected a large tunnel Israel discovered in April on the Israeli side of the border. Israel said it had been dug by Hamas.

    Israeli security sources say half a dozen classified anti-tunnel technologies have long been under development, though held up by funding problems that were partly alleviated by a U.S. research grant of $40 million this year.

    Hamas leaders, while stressing they do not seek an imminent war, see tunnels as a strategic weapon in any armed confrontation with Israel and have vowed not to stop building them.

    More than 2,100 Palestinians, mostly civilians, were killed during the 2014 Gaza conflict. Sixty-seven Israeli soldiers and six civilians in Israel were killed by rockets and attacks by Hamas and other militant groups.

    Israel to limit ties with nations which voted against it in UN vote

    Netanyahu will not meet with the foreign ministers of those countries and their ambassadors will not be received at Israel's Foreign Ministry.

    Jerusalem, Dec 27: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday ordered the Foreign Ministry to temporarily limit all working ties with nations who voted for last week's UN Security Council resolution demanding that Israel halt settlement building in Palestinian territory. Two senior Israeli officials, who wish not to be named, told CNN that business with the embassies of countries like Britain, France, Russia, China, Japan, Ukraine, Angola, Egypt, Uruguay, Spain, Senegal and New Zealand will be suspended. Benjamin Netanyahu Netanyahu will not meet with the foreign ministers of those countries and their ambassadors will not be received at Israel's Foreign Ministry, the officials added. In addition, travel by Israeli ministers to these countries will also be limited, said the officials, noting that Israeli ambassadors in the countries will still be able to continue working with the governments of their host nations. The move came after 10 envoys were summoned to the Foreign Ministry for a personal rebuke over the vote. However, it was unlikely to have any practical effect on either Israel or the other countries, as it does not affect trade, security coordination, or other aspects of the relations. Israel was furious at the passage of the UN Security Council Resolution 2334, which stated that the settlements in the West Bank "had no legal validity, constituting a flagrant violation under international law and a major obstacle to the vision of two States living side-by-side in peace and security." The US abstained at the UN Security Council vote on the resolution.

    Israels golden years of unconditional support from the west are over, within a decade we will see a whole new power shift in the middle east. US no longer depends on Arab oil and therefore doesn't need KSA nor does she need to appease Israel at the cost of Arabs.

    It remains to be seen how Isis reshapes the region and how deep Russia and the US will remain involved. But Palestine will gain more support, specially from countries like Germany, France and China.

    What is the significance of this resolution?


    Israel is unlikely to face any problem. US is playing a good game. Before his departure, Obama is trying to fool the Palestinians that he has got sympathy with them while it is obvious that it won't be in his hand to help or answer them when Trump has taken the oath. I would have seen this resolution as something significant if US had given a vote but they abstained.


    UN is biased against Israel, will just make the standoff worse; Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon

    Before that Muslim immigrants will destroy Germany and France from within. Merkel is already losing support within Germany. Her policy of open doors to middle eastern immigrants has made her hugely unpopular and most probably a RW government will be elected in the next elections. Germany and France will succumb before anything happens to Israel. Ummah members will make sure Europe rots and that is already turning the worlds sentiments against Muslims. It's already started.

    Merkel maybe losing some support but it is unlikely that she will be replaced. It's pretty certain that she will win and serve as German Chancellor for the fourth term. Her approval ratings at 55 percent who want her to remain in office are higher than any of the populist regimes.

    Jews are the owners of most of the biggest Defence companies and financial institutions in Europe and USA. Any Pakistani who think Israel will just lose support is just naive.

    Let's see :). Same can be said of Hillary. I understand it's a different context but it only goes to show pre poll ratings cannot really be trusted. And I should say Germany has more help to be pushed over to the RW camp than the USA ever did. So much so, that Neo Nazi anti Islam and immigrant rallies have been held in various cities across Germany. Since when it was considered acceptable? Food for thought..

    Israel is already facing backlash in Europe for its unconstructive policy. Ever heard of this ?
    Goods made in israeli settlements cannot be labelled "Made in Israel" anymore

    Ho yes because European countries have become apologetic self-catering idiots who have bought into the idea of the fake country called Palestine which is nothing but a weapon used by the arabs to poke and prod israle just because It can't be labelled it won't stop being a part of the state of Israel

    that is useless .........Israel has 200+ nukes and their Army is very strong , Nobody will Fight with them .............Economical & political sanctions are mostly useless (example North Korea ) .

    within 15 days Trump will become president of USA (his daughter & son in Law are jews ) and He is Pro Israel .............they will again get American support .

    that means practically there will be no significant effect on Israel .
