The Sanhedrin is minting a commemorative coin in recognition of Nikki Haley’s exemplary service as the 29th U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. Haley tendered her resignation in October effective at the end of 2018.The Sanhedrin issued the commemorative coin in conjunction with an invitation for Haley to serve as the honorary president of a Biblically mandated organization of 70 Nations.
The face of the coin has an image of Haley superimposed on an image of the United Nations General Assembly building in New York City with the flag of Israel prominently displayed next to the U.S. flag. Also on the face of the coin are the words “Seventy Nations Organization Jerusalem” in Hebrew and English displayed over an image of the seven-branched Menorah that once stood in each of the Jewish Temples in Jerusalem.

The opposite side of the coin features a stylized image of the Jewish Temple, an image of the silver half-shekel as it appeared in Temple times, and an image of the stone altar. In the center are the words “The Temple Coin” in Hebrew, English and Arabic. Around the edge is written “The Sanhedrin court” in English and Hebrew, as well as the Hebrew “Dedication of the altar, half-shekel, 5779 (the Hebrew year).
The altar appears because last month, during the holiday of Hanukkah, the Sanhedrin dedicated an altar to be used in the Third Temple. The Sanhedrin’s announcement of the commemorative coin explained the altar’s relevance to a universal organization.
“The altar and the Temple service brought holiness, purity, and humility into the world,” the statement read. “These traits when coupled with truth and peace are necessary for the world to exist. Just as Adam, the first man, recognized his Creator by sacrificing on an altar, we invite all of mankind, in particular, those who wish to rededicate the world to a Bible-based reality, to take part in establishing a renewed Temple and its service through this coin.”
Rabbi Hillel Weiss, spokesman for the Sanhedrin, emphasized that this was the second commemorative coin dedicated to a non-Jew. Last year, the Sanhedrin issued a coin engraved with the image of Trump superimposed on an image of Persian King Cyrus who ended the Babylonian exile and played a pivotal role in establishing the Second Temple in 516 BCE.
“It is imperative that all 70 nations take part in the preparations for the Third Temple in order for it to be truly a ‘House of prayer for all nations’,” Rabbi Weiss told Breaking Israel News. “Nikki Haley not only helped Israel but through her strength of character and by adherence to truth, she fought against an ongoing agenda that endangers the entire world.”
Rabbi Weiss cited the UNESCO resolutions which erased entire sections of the Bible while rewriting world history by referring to Jerusalem and Hebron as exclusively Muslim holy sites.
“Such behavior by the UN endangers every sovereign nation,” Rabbi Weiss said. “Nikki Haley stood in the breach against all the forces that would place any nation at the whim of political agendas. In addition to the key role she played in recognizing Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel, she played an essential role in reinforcing Israel’s claim to the Golan, a claim based on the Biblical borders of Israel reaching until the Euphrates. Every nation should take heart that figures like Haley will strengthen national borders and each nation’s unique history, language, and heritage.”

Giant figures are seen during the 87th carnival parade of Aalst February 15, 2015
The annual carnival in Aalst, Belgium, is expected to take place on Sunday with even more antisemitic elements than in previous years.
Aalst’s organizers have sold hundreds of “rabbi kits” for revelers to dress as hassidic Jews in the carnival’s parade. The kit includes oversized noses, sidelocks (peyot) and black hats. The organizers plan to bring back floats similar to the one displayed in 2019 featuring oversized dolls of Jews, with rats on their shoulders, holding banknotes.

Pope Francis on Sunday warned against “inequitable solutions” to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, saying they would only be a prelude to new crises, in an apparent reference to US President Donald Trump’s Middle East peace proposal.
Francis made his comments in the southern Italian port city of Bari, where he traveled to conclude a meeting of bishops from all countries in the Mediterranean basin.

Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA) have reached an agreement to end a five-month long trade dispute, officials said on Thursday.
The dispute, which opened a new front in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, began in September when the PA announced a boycott of Israel calves. The PA exercises limited self-rule in the West Bank under interim peace deals.

Disturbing images emerged on Sunday of the annual carnival at Aalst, Belgium, showing an astounding number of antisemitic themes, costumes, displays and statements.
Israeli journalist Raphael Ahren documented people dressed as caricatures of Orthodox Jews, a fake “wailing wall” attacking critics of the parade, blatantly antisemitic characters and puppets wearing traditional Jewish clothes and sporting huge noses.

The stench of anti-Semitism always hovers over Switzerland’s Lake Geneva when the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) is meeting there. The foul emanations reached a new nadir last week with UNHRC’s publication of a “database” of companies doing business in the disputed territories in Israel.
Following the publication of the list, Bruno Stagno Ugarte, deputy director for advocacy of NGO Human Rights Watch, stated, “The long-awaited release of the U.N. settlement business database should put all companies on notice: To do business with illegal settlements [sic] is to aid in the commission of war crimes.”
One of the many things that annoys me about politicians is how sure they are of themselves. Everything is black and white. Every idea is good or bad. Take globalism, for example. You either love it or hate it. It works or it doesn’t.
Another thing that annoys me is how so much of a politician’s life revolves around power: Do everything you can to get it, and everything you can to keep it.
Why am I ranting? Because, while our politicians have been consumed with power and the media with the fights over power, a threat to our nation has been virtually ignored.
Blue and White Party leaders Benny Gantz and Yair Lapid are establishing their diplomatic credentials in the immediate run-up to Israel’s March 2 election with an insult to a U.S. administration that has arguably provided Israel with more diplomatic gains than any previous administration.
The Times of Israel reported that at a campaign stop in front of English-speaking Israelis, Gantz accused Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “of neglecting bipartisan ties in favor of exclusive support from U.S. President Donald Trump’s Republican Party,” under the headline “Gantz pledges to mend ties with U.S. Democrats if elected.”
Bipartisanship was in short supply at the State of the Union address earlier this month—with one notable exception.
Nancy Pelosi had been looking dyspeptic, shuffling the papers she would later rip to shreds, when President Donald Trump reminded his audience that “the United States is leading a 59-nation diplomatic coalition against the socialist dictator of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro.”
Suddenly, the House Speaker applauded. Trump then introduced “the true and legitimate president of Venezuela: Juan Guaidó.”
The law professor Alan Dershowitz has thrown a legal hand-grenade into America’s political civil war by claiming to have evidence that former President Barack Obama “personally asked” the FBI to investigate someone “on behalf” of Obama’s “close ally,” billionaire financier George Soros.
He made his cryptic remark in an interview defending U.S. President Donald Trump against claims he interfered in the prosecution of his former adviser, Roger Stone.
