  • (1)Rishon L’Tzion Continues His Political Agenda Against Kol Berama Radio

    Rishon L’Tzion Rabbi Yitzchak Yosef Shlita continues to use his high-level civil service post to advance the Shas anti-Eli Yishai agenda, which includes banning Kol Berama Radio, which is affiliated with the former Shas party leader- Eli Yishai. In the latest episode, Rav Yosef refused to give a shiur after realizing Kol Berama was set up to broadcast it live, only willing to permit Kol Chai Radio to do so, as the latter is viewed as Shas-friendly. Rav Yosef also spoke out harshly against Kol Berama, which backed down and left, permitting Kol Chai to broadcast the shiur exclusively, the Kikar Shabbos News report details. The shiur in question was on Hashana Rabba night in Asher Ha’ish Beis Medrash of HaGaon HaRav Yosef Ben-Porat. After Rav Yosef entered the beis medrash, he saw two microphones were set up, one Kol Berama, prompting him to ask “Which Kol is this?”, learning it was the one he is opposed two, instructing organizers to immediately remove the microphone. “I don’t speak on Kol Berama” he exclaimed to the tzibur present, compelling the station to announce the cancelation of the planned live broadcast.

  • (8)Key Senators Say They Have Outline Of Health Insurance Deal

    Two leading senators said Tuesday they have the “basic outlines” of a bipartisan agreement to resume federal payments to health insurers that President Donald Trump has blocked. Both said in separate interviews that they still have unresolved issues but expressed optimism that a compromise was near. The agreement would involve a two-year extension of federal payments to insurers that Trump halted last week, said Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn. Unless the money is quickly restored, insurers and others say that will result in higher premiums for people buying individual policies and in some carriers leaving unprofitable markets. In exchange, Republicans want Congress to give states “meaningful” flexibility to ease some coverage requirements under President Barack Obama’s health care law. “The definition of meaningful,” Alexander said when asked what the remaining stumbling blocks were. Alexander agreed with his negotiating partner, Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., who said the two lawmakers “have the basic outlines” of an agreement but have differences to bridge. The two senators planned to brief colleagues in separate GOP and Democratic Senate lunches. Alexander chairs the Senate health committee and Murray is that panel’s top Democrat. Murray and Alexander began talks on extending the payments months ago, when Trump was frequently threatening to stop the subsidies. Both said they were close to a deal, but GOP leaders shut the effort down in September when the Senate revisited the Republican drive to repeal Obama’s law. The repeal effort failed, as did an earlier GOP attempt to dismantle the law in July. Trump’s halt of the payments and worries about its impact have galvanized lawmakers in both parties to take action to prevent it. Even so, strong opposition by some conservatives means the congressional fate of a compromise would be uncertain. For their part, Democrats believe Republicans in control of Washington will be blamed by voters for future health care problems and are reluctant to bend too far toward GOP demands for opening loopholes in Obama’s law. Alexander said Trump has twice in recent days urged him to reach a deal with Murray. “He says he doesn’t want people to be hurt in this interim,” said Alexander, a reference to Trump’s desire to revisit the effort to scrap Obama’s statute next year. Trump repeated his gloomy assessment of a law that’s expanded health coverage to 20 million people and required insurers to cover specified services and limit costs, but has also seen premiums rise and limited competition in some regions. “Obamacare is virtually dead. At best you could say it’s in its final legs. The premiums are going through the roof. The deductibles are so high that people don’t get to use it. Obamacare is a disgrace to our nation and we are solving the problem of Obamacare,” he told reporters in the Oval Office. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Trump’s stoppage of the payments “showed that he’s willing to take a wrecking ball to our nation’s health care for the sake of politics.” He said congressional support for an agreement between Alexander and Murray would show lawmakers have “no intention of going along with President Trump’s reckless sabotage of the nation’s health care law.” Under Obama’s 2010 overhaul, the government must pay insurers for reducing out-of-pocket expenses for lower-earning customers. A federal judge has ruled that Congress hadn’t legally […]

    The Pentagon and US allies in Syria accused Russian jets of Saturday “impacting a location known to the Russians to contain [US-backed] Syrian Democratic Forces and coalition advisers”east of the Euphrates River in Syria's Deir Ez Zour province.. The Kremlin denied the allegation.

    "Several SDF fighters were wounded," the statementadded. None of the advisers were injured.

    But Russia's military spokesman denied Moscow targeted the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an alliance of Arab and Kurdish fighters supported by Washington. "This is not possible. Why would we bomb them?" military spokesman Igor Konashenkov said.

  • (6)UK drops terror threat level from critical to severe
    September 17, 2017, 5:34 PM (IDT)

    The British government Sunday restored to “severe” the terror threat level that was raised to “critical,” its highest, Saturday, the day after a terrorist bomb blew up a Tube train drawing into the London station of Parson’s Green injuring 30 people. Also Sunday, anti-terror police raided a second house in Stanwell near Heathrow airport. Since ISIS claimed the attack, DEBKAfile’s counterterrorism sources report that Scotland Yard and MI5 suspect a terrorist network is at work in the country, which struck earlier this month in Manchester and has since gone into action inthe Greater London area. They have deduced that its cells are interconnected Lego-style. The fact that only two suspects have been rounded up since the Friday attack indicates that the investigation is still groping in the dark.

  • (8)Hamas ditches responsibility for Gaza, Egypt cuts Israel out of this process
    September 18, 2017, 9:23 AM (IDT)

    Hamas has disowned responsibility for governing the Gaza Strip as of Monday, Sept. 18. DEBKAfile: This announcement by Hamas, after talks with Egyptian officials, aims at pushing Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, head of the rival Fatah, into takingover and placingGaza under PA rule, 11 years after the Hamas coup against Fatah.

    As a further incentive, Hamas leaders promised to call off all contacts with Abbas’ arch foe, Muhammad Dahlan, and torefuse the donations he has solicited for the Gaza Strip. It is not clear if Hamas is willing to give up on the United Arab Emirates donations which are funneled through Dahlan.
    It was noted in Jerusalem that the Egyptian government has refrained from briefing Israel on the deals its officials have negotiated with the extremist Palestinian group, as through the future of the Gaza Strip is not its concern.

    September 18, 2017, 8:21 AM (IDT)

    A meeting has been scheduled in New York Monday between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and US President Donald Trump. It is generally expected to focus on Israel’s bid to amend the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran. In mid-October, Trump is due to certify Iran’s compliance with that deal, which Israel refutes.
    DEBKAfile’s sources say that the tightening Russian-Iranian-Syrian collaboration in Syria, at the expense of the US-led coalition and Israeli security, will figure large in their conversation. The two leaders will also touch on US efforts to revive Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.

    President Trump is due to deliver his first address to the UN General Assembly Tuesday and the next day meet Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas.The Prime Minister, who also addresses the General Assembly Tuesday. has scheduled meetings with Japanese premier Shinzo Abe, Panamanian President Juan Carlos Varela, and Rwanda President Paul Kagame.
