Hamas paid family to claim Gaza baby was killed by Israeli tear gas, says family member

A 20-year-old Palestinian indicted Thursday on terror-related charges told Israeli investigators during his interrogation that Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar paid his relatives to falsely tell the media that his baby cousin died of tear gas inhalation.

The story of baby Layla Ghandour’s death, purportedly from inhaling tear gas fired by Israel at the Gaza border, made headlines around the world last month and intensified global criticism of Israel’s handling of Hamas-spurred violence at the security fence.

UN HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL

As US pulls out of UNHRC, Britain must now step up its defence of Israel at human rights council

After the US took the courageous decision of withdrawing from the UN Human Rights Council on Wednesday, the United Kingdom must now step up to the plate in countering the anti-Israel bias at the council.

Britain has for too long defaulted to abstention at the UNHRC, and has even voted against Israel on occasions. But more recently, the UK has taken a bolder, albeit not perfect, stand against the condemnation of Israel signalling that the UK could be about to turn a page. With the US now absent at the UNHRC, Britain’s voice in support of Israel is as important as ever.

US pulls out of UN Human Rights Council

The United States is leaving the United Nations’ Human Rights Council, which Ambassador Nikki Haley called “an organization that is not worthy of its name” and a “cesspool” of anti-Israel bias.

PM Netanyahu responded, “For years, the UNHRC has proven to be a biased, hostile, anti-Israel organisation that has betrayed its mission of protecting human rights,” Netanyahu charged. “Instead of dealing with regimes that systematically violate human rights, the UNHRC obsessively focuses on Israel, the one genuine democracy in the Middle East.”

Israeli teen thankful for prayers after she was stabbed by Palestinian terrorist

An Israeli teen who was stabbed by a Palestinian terrorist last week said it was a miracle she is still alive and thanked those who prayed for her.

“I feel this stabbing incident was not something private for me, but rather of all the people of Israel. It’s a reminder that we must move forward and grow from it,” 18-year-old high school student Shuva Malka said from her hospital bed in Haemek Medical Center in Israel’s north.

Shuva praised the hospital staff for the care she received and thanked the Israeli public for “the prayers that greatly strengthened us and made a difference up above.”

LABOUR

Labour parliamentary candidate for Swindon linked with anti-Semitic Tweets 

Kate Linnegar, the elected Parliamentary candidate for Swindon North has become the latest Labour member to be caught up in the anti-Semitism scandal of the party.

Earlier this week, Kate Linnegar was linked with an anti-Semitic Twitter account, after which she publicly distanced herself. But CUFI can reveal further evidence that Linnegar likely oversaw the Swindon People's Assembly account and defended anti-Semites herself on multiple occasions.
