Call it the Corona Effect if you like, but Israel is expecting aliyah to double this year and a potentially bigger wave in 2021.

Jewish Agency Director-General Josh Schwartz told the Knesset that the pandemic will probably drive up immigration to Israel, with an expected 50,000 Jews moving to Israel in 2020.

An Israeli living in Los Angeles told Israel Hayom he believes that Palestinians are exploiting the ongoing riots across American cities as a cover to attack synagogues.

Several L.A. synagogues have been vandalized or even destroyed during the protests, including one in Beverly Hills. “F**k Israel” and “Free Palestine” graffiti appeared on one Los Angeles synagogue during riots this week.

Israel is gearing up for a controversial decision expected to be taken by the government next month to unilaterally extend the country’s sovereignty to territory that Palestinians also want for a future state. 

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said cabinet discussions on annexation would begin on July 1. He is expected to easily secure a majority vote in either the Knesset or within his cabinet. 

But while Netanyahu is pushing forward at full speed, Israel’s main ally, the United States, is trying to put the brakes on annexation at least for now, according to recent media reports. A senior Israeli source said it appears America “want to downplay the enthusiasm” for a fast annexation while it deals with its own domestic problems instead.

Laurie Cardoza-Moore has now accused me and Dr. Michael L Brown of ‘staging’ confrontations on film. Crazy! First she attacks the Messianic believers in Israel and asks Benjamin Netanyahu – בנימין נתניהו to silence us. Here is my response. forgive me for the humor…if I didn’t laugh, I might cry… I am not personally offended, but I am concerned for the Jewish people who will be turned off to the gospel by her lies about Jewish believers.
