Israel charges ‘spy recruited in Nigeria’

Israel has charged a former cabinet minister with spying for Iran, the Shin Bet internal security service says.

Gonen Segev, a medical doctor who served as energy minister in the 1990s, was allegedly recruited by Iranian intelligence while living in Nigeria.

He was detained during a visit to Equatorial Guinea in May and extradited following a request by Israeli police.

The 62 year old was jailed for five years in 2005 for smuggling drugs and forging a diplomatic passport.

He also had his medical licence revoked, but was allowed to work as a physician in Nigeria when he moved there after his release from prison in 2007.


Sisi orders Gaza border opened

Egypt’s president, Abdul Fattah al-Sisi, has ordered the opening of the border with Gaza for the whole month of Ramadan.

President al-Sisi said the measure was aimed at alleviating the burdens of the population of Gaza.

Egypt opens the Rafah border with the Palestinian territory at regular intervals but this would be the longest single opening in several years.

​Benjamin Netanyahu ‘Do not test Israel’, Prime minister tells Iran, brandishing drone ‘piece’

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Tehran on Sunday over aggressions by what he called Iran and its “proxies” in Syria, while showing what he claimed was a piece of an Iranian drone shot down in Israeli airspace.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Tehran on Sunday over aggressions by what he called Iran and its “proxies” in Syria, while showing what he claimed was a piece of an Iranian drone shot down in Israeli airspace.

Saying he had ” A message to the tyrants of Tehran ” during a speech at the Munich Security Conference, he warned: “Do not test Israel’s resolve.”

He brandished a rectangular piece of dark green metal which he called “a piece of that Iranian drone, or what’s left of it, after we shot it down.”

Israel has said it shot down the drone on February 10 after it entered the country from Syria, and responded with a raid on what it said was the Iranian control systems for the craft in Syria.

It marked the first time Israel publicly acknowledged hitting Iranian targets in Syria since the 2011 start of the civil war there.

During the strikes, one of Israel’s F-16 fighter jets was shot down, believed to be the first loss of an Israeli plane in combat since 1982.

Calling Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif the ” smooth-talking mouthpiece of Iran’s regime,” Netanyahu said: ” Mr Zarif, do you recognise this? You should, it’s yours.”

Again referring to Zarif, who is scheduled to speak later in Munich, the Israeli leader said: “No doubt Mr Zarif will brazenly deny Iran’s involvement in Syria.”

“He lies with eloquence.”

‘Noose of terror’

The Israeli military has claimed the drone was a copy of a US model captured by Iran in 2011, based on an analysis of the drone’s debris.

Tensions between the two countries have been building in recent months, with Israel fearing that Tehran is trying to establish a permanent presence in Syria as part of an effort to become a greater regional power in the Middle East.

At the same time, Syria appears to feel it now has the upper hand in the civil war and is more emboldened to stop Israeli air raids inside the country, analysts say.

But Netanyahu said Sunday that Israel would not let Iran obtain a permanent foothold in its northern neighbour.

“Through its proxies — Shiite militias in Iraq, the Huthis in Yemen, Hezbollah in Lebanon, Hamas in Gaza — Iran is devouring huge swathes of the Middle East,” he said.

“Israel will not allow Iran’s regime to put a noose of terror around our neck,” he added.

“We will act without hesitation to defend ourselves. And we will act if necessary not just against Iran’s proxies that are attacking us, but against Iran itself.”

But he stressed that Israel was not the enemy of the Iranian people, and offered his condolences to the families of the 66 people killed in an Iranian plane crash Sunday.

“We have no quarrel with the people of Iran, only with the regime that torments them,” Netanyahu said.

We will destroy Israel and flatten Tel Aviv to the ground, even Netanyahu will be killed, Islamic Republic of Iran threatens to annihilate the world’s only Jewish Nation

​Iran has threatened Israel and its Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, saying it will destroy Tel Aviv if there is an attack on the Islamic Republic.

In a televised speech on Monday, a senior Iranian official said the Israeli

city of Tel Aviv would be “leveled to the ground” if Israel were to attack Iran, and Netanyahu would not escape with his life.

Mohsen Rezaei, a former head of Iran’s powerful Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and secretary of the country’s Expediency Council, made the remarks in response to a speech Netanyahu made in Munich on Sunday, The Times of Israel reported.

The Israeli leader threatened strikes against Iran at the international security conference. As he made the warning, Netanyahu brandished a piece of fuselage from an Iranian drone shot down by an Israeli attack helicopter over Israel’s northern border last Saturday.

“About Netanyahu’s unwise words, I should say that if they carry out the slightest unwise move against Iran, we will level Tel Aviv to the ground,” Rezaei told the Hezbollah-affiliated al-Manar channel on Monday. He added that Tehran would not “give Netanyahu any opportunity to flee.”

The war of words between Iran and Israel follows a flaring of tensions on the ground between the two nations .

The downing of the Iranian drone on February 10 was the first direct confrontation between Israel and Iran in Israeli territory. Since the start of the civil war in neighboring Syria, Israel has regularly intervened to check the expansion of Iran and its Lebanese proxy Hezbollah, which has backed the Bashar al-Assad led Syrian regime in Damascus.

In response to the drone incursion, Israeli Air Force jets targeted a mobile command center military officials claimed had operated the unmanned aerial vehicle. During the raid, one of eight jets involved in the attack was hit by a Syrian anti-aircraft missile. The aircraft crash-landed in Israel.

Rezaei accused Netanyahu in his speech of being theatrical and childish. “U.S. and Israeli leaders don’t know Iran and don’t understand the power of resistance, and therefore they continuously face defeat,” he said. -YN

Speech from the prime minister of Israel….. Benjamin Netanyahu, with all Glory to God.

Mr. Nethanyahu said:

Only 70 years ago! The Jews were taken to the slaughter like sheep. 

60 years ago! We had no country. No Army.

Seven Arab countries declared war on our small Jewish state, just a few hours after its creation!

We were only 650 Jews, against the rest of the Arab world! NO IDF (Israel Defense Army).

No powerful Air Force, only brave people with nowhere to go.

Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Egypt, Libya, Saudi Arabia all attacked us at the same time.

The country that the United Nations gave us was 65 % desert. The country was out of nowhere!

35 years ago! We fought the three most powerful armies in the middle east, and we swept them… yes… in six days.

We fought against various coalitions of Arab countries, which had the modern armies and many Soviet weapons, and we had always beaten them!

Today we have:

*A country*

*An army*

*A powerful air force*

*A State-of-the-Art economy which exports millions of dollars*

*Intel – Microsoft – IBM develops products at home*

*Our doctors receive awards for medical research*

We make the desert bloom, and sell oranges, flowers and vegetables all over the world.

Israel has sent its own satellites into space!

Three satellites at the same time!
We are proud to be at the same rank as: 

The United States, which has 250 million inhabitants,

Russia, which has 200 million inhabitants,

China, which has 1.3 billion inhabitants,

Europe – France, Great Britain, Germany – with 350 million inhabitants..

The only countries in the world to send objects into space! Israel is now part of the family of the nuclear powers, with the United States, Russia, China, India, France, and Great Britain.

We have never officially admitted it, (but everyone knows it) and say that only 60 years ago, we were led, ashamed and hopeless, to slaughter!

We have extirpés the smoking ruins of Europe, we have won our wars here with less than nothing. We built our little “Empire” from nothing.

Who’s Hamas to scare me? To terrify me? You make me laugh! 

Passover was celebrated; Let’s not forget what this is about.

>We survived Pharaoh.

>We survived the Greeks.

>We survived the Romans.

>We survived the inquisition in Spain.

>We have the pogroms in Russia.

>We survived Hitler.

>We survived the Germans.

>We survived the Holocaust.

>We survived the armies of seven Arab countries.

>We survived Saddam.

>We will continue to survive the enemies present today too.

Think of any time in human history! Think about it, for us, the Jewish people, the situation has never been better! Then let’s face the world.

Let us remember: All nations or cultures who once tried to destroy us, no longer exist today – while we still live!


The Greeks?

Alexander of Macedonia?

The Romans? (does anyone still speak Latin these days? )

The Third Reich?

And look at us,

>The Bible Nation.

>The slaves of Egypt.

>We are still here.

And we speak the same language! then, and now! Arabs don’t know yet, but they will learn that there is a God ….as long as we keep our identity, we are forever.

So forgive us for not worrying.

>Not to cry.

>Not to be afraid.

>Things are fine here.

>They could certainly get better.

However: Don’t believe the media, they don’t tell you  that parties continue to take place, people continue to live, people keep coming out, people continue to see friends.

Yes, our morale is low. So what? Only because we mourn our deaths, while others rejoice in the blood shed. That is why we will win, in the end.

He never sleeps or will ever sleep…. the guardian of Israel…. Yahweh God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

Forward this speech to the whole community, and to people around the world. They are part of our strength.

​FG to partner Israel on food security, tech transfer

Abuja —The Federal Government has reached an agreement with its Israeli counterpart to use science and technology innovations to drive food security, improve health care and rapid industrialization. The Minister of Science and Technology Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu, stated this when he hosted the deputy chief of mission, Embassy of Israel to Nigeria in Abuja, yesterday.

Onu said the Federal Government would partner Israeli in the area of science and technology to improve food security, provide high yielding resistant seedling, pest control and mechanization.

“If we don’t mechanize the process of farming we can never get young people to farm because I cannot see any young person who will go and use the machete that our great grandfather used.

“We are more interested in producing food to make sure that Nigerians are not hungry, to make sure we are producing enough power to light our factory and our homes and we make sure that we power the industrialization drive of the nation for alternative source of energy,” the minister stated.

He restated the determination of the Federal Ministry of Science and Technology to ensure that the nation’s economy was transformed from a resourced-based economy to knowledge-based, to effectively utilise all resources available in the country.

He also noted that the ministry was working hard to help Nigeria create jobs through research and innovations that would grow its Gross Domestic Product, GDP.

The minister said: “We are planning science, technology and innovation expo. This will be a multiple exposition in the country that will involve the Federal Ministry of Science and Technology, all research institutes in the country, all universities and all research laboratories in our various industries those who are in the informal sector.

“We want to make sure we pull all the resource together, then we will invite the entrepreneurs, and investors to help us in the search for commercialization of our research findings.” Earlier, Nadan Goren assured that Israel was ready to share its knowledge on technology and innovation with Nigeria.

“Israel is good example of a country in which natural resources, two third of their land is arid and officially desert and the only way we overcame this challenges is using technology, innovation and I think a country that has this experience can share this experience, can share this knowledge on technology, innovation with a country like Nigeria,” he said.

“I believe the progress on the future we are talking about is on innovation and technology and also looking into education and the people, the human resources as the most important resources,” he said.
