Israel to Donate Veterinary Vaccine to Hamas

(Yoni Ariel/TPS) Israel has agreed to donate 30,000 doses of vaccine to help prevent the spread of foot and mouth disease in Gaza. Foot and mouth is a serious and highly infectious virus that affects mostly cattle and sheep. Although not usually fatal, it causes significant economic damage. It is not dangerous to humans.

The first cases in Gaza were reported several weeks ago. The Hamas administration in Gaza did not report the outbreak to Israeli authorities, in violation of international agreements. As a result, Israel did not take any preventive action, and the virus crossed the border and started infecting Israeli herds.

Only after the disease had begun infecting animals in Israel...

(JNS.org) The U.S. has remained mum on the historic, yet controversial passage of an Israeli bill that retroactively legalizes settlement outposts in Judea and Samaria.

Rather than issuing a new statement, the White House immediately responded to the Regulation Law by referring to its statement from last week, which said “we don’t believe the existence of settlements is an impediment to peace” but that construction of new settlements “may not be helpful” in the Israel-Palestinian peace process.

Late Monday night, the Knesset passed the bill 60-52, retroactively legalizing some 4,000 homes that sit on private Palestinian land, while also providing compensation to the...
