Right-Wing Israeli Newspaper: "Israel Should Nuke Germany and Iran"

The extremist right-wing Israeli newspaper „Israel National News“ published an opinion piece on Tuesday in which it called for Israel to attack Germany and Iran with nuclear bombs. The article claims that only through the nuclear annihilation of Germany and Iran, with 20 or 30 nuclear bombs, can Israelis prevent destruction of the state.
„If Israel does not follow the way of the Torah, it will be almost completely destroyed by a severe punishment and only a few will survive“ writes Chen Ben-Eliyahu, the author of the piece, in Hebrew.
Israel must respond in kind in order to prevent this. “We must answer an existential threat with an existential threat”; he writes, “not with speeches to the US-Congress. We must make it clear to the Iranians that Israel will wipe out their nuclear program and Teheran and Isfahan as well.
“If an enemy sets out to destroy you, then you must destroy him first. Twenty or thirty nuclear bombs will get the job done”, he explains.
He reminds the Israelis of their near destruction at the hands of the Nazis and calls for revenge on Germany, although the German government is now, next to the US, Israel’s biggest supporter..............

Report slams Israel's 'squandering' of aid to Palestine
The Euro-Med Human Rights Monitor
releases a report documenting Israel's
destruction of EU-funded projects in
Gaza Strip - A surge in Israel's destruction of EU-funded projects in Palestine is linked to the EU's decision in 2015 to label products made in Israeli settlements in the West Bank, according to a new report.
The report, titled 'Squandered Aid' and authored by the Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Monitor, was disseminated on the sidelines of a recent EU session. The report, of which Al Jazeera obtained an exclusive copy before its release this week, documents Israel's repetitive destruction of EU-funded projects in Palestine.
The Euro-Med group estimates the total squandered EU aid money at €65 million ($73m), lost over the period 2001-2015, with at least €23 million ($26m) lost only during the 2014 Israeli assault on Gaza.
During the first three months of 2016, the number of demolitions - per month - of projects funded by private, international or EU parties increased to 165, from an average of 50 per month during 2012-2015. This includes 120 documented demolitions of EU-financed buildings over the first three months of 2016, compared with 82 demolitions between 2001 and 2011.
"It's the classic 'catch-22'," says Cecile Choquet, a researcher at Euro-Med. "Palestinians need help to rebuild, but as soon as they start to get back on their feet, Israel knocks them back down."
Demolitions and stop-work orders were particularly directed at structures located in Area C of the occupied West Bank, which falls under Israeli security and civilian control. It is regarded by the international community as the main land reserve for a future Palestinian state. In a single week in August 2015, 63 houses were destroyed, leaving 132 Palestinians homeless.
The surge has attracted international focus. In 2015, 31 human rights groupscondemned Israel's "wanton destruction of Palestinian property and of projects funded by international aid in the occupied West Bank".
Palestinians need help to rebuild, but as soon as they start to get back on their feet, Israel knocks them back down.
The office of the Coordinator of Israeli Government Activities in the Occupied Territories (COGAT) claimed that "measures are taken against illegal building". However, Euro-Med reports that, in some cases, Israeli authorities have demolished Palestinian projects they had earlier approved.
Further, permits are scarce, with only as few as 2.3 percent of applications for building permits in Area C approved by Israeli authorities between 2009 and 2012, according to the Israeli rights group B'Tselem.
The Israeli daily Haaretz reported last Tuesday on a "tense and difficult meeting" between Israeli and EU officials, where the EU expressed opposition to home demolitions and forced evacuations of Palestinian populations.
The EU Ambassador to Israel, Lars Faaborg-Andersen, reportedly warned that a continuation of the massive demolition of Palestinian homes in the occupied West Bank "is liable to harm relations between the EU and Israel".
In accord with Euro-Med observation, Haaretz ascribed the significant increase in demolition activities, especially of construction funded by the EU, to an Israeli attempt to adopt sanctions against the EU in response to the decision to label products from the settlements in European supermarkets and heavy political pressure by right-wing Israeli parliamentarians.
Al Jazeera spoke to Wijnand Marchal, First Secretary for Economic Affairs at the Netherlands Representative Office in Ramallah, who confirmed that Dutch-sponsored projects have been increasingly encountering problems during or after implementation, especially over the last six months.
"We have seen an increase of stop-work orders and demolition orders," Marchal told Al Jazeera. "In Gaza, the agricultural programmes have [during the latest war of 2014] witnessed the demolition of water wells, greenhouses, and packing houses belonging to cooperatives," he continued.
During 2015, Dutch projects incurred damages totalling over $230,000 as a result of Israeli enforcement activities. "In case Israeli demolitions of Dutch development projects is continuing, this will have a negative impact on our relations with Israel," the Dutch diplomat told Al Jazeera.
Euro-Med deplores that since 2012, information on damage to EU-funded projects has been inaccessible to both the media and human rights institutions.
Rami Abdu, Chairman of Euro-Med Monitor, says the report relied primarily on field research, including interviews with eyewitnesses, village councils, municipalities and relevant governmental and non-governmental bodies, as well as past publications and anonymous "tips" made available by diplomats who asked to remain anonymous.
"It might represent an embarrassment to the EU for not protecting its funded facilities properly," says Choquet of Euro-Med. "Thus, most relevant data are classified."
In addition, Abdu warns that some in Europe are questioning the wisdom of investing more funds in the occupied Palestinian territories "particularly in light of the austerity measures implemented following the debt crisis throughout the region and the wave of refugees from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan".
"At a recent conference in Washington, DC, the president of American Near East Refugee Aid (ANERA), Bill Corcoran, observed that funding from large donors is beginning to dry up due to the realisation that rebuilt infrastructure will likely be destroyed once again," says Pam Bailey, an international secretary at Euro-Med.
"The response of international agencies is to withdraw funds. But my question is: Why don't they instead finally take action against Israel, instead of penalising ordinary Palestinians?"
Concluding the report, Euro-Med urged the EU commission to substantively penalise the Israeli government when UN- or European-funded projects are targeted.
"Recently we have seen more interest by our parliament on the challenges facing development projects in the West Bank. Some parliamentarians press for compensation from Israel," the Dutch Representative Office told Al Jazeera, confirming that they remain even more committed to humanitarian and development assistance to Palestinians.
According to Bailey, Israel's targeting of EU-funded projects won't stop "until the EU takes action".
