The risk of the establishment of the Israel state in the South Sudan

Israeli officials are going to establish an independent state like current Israel in the South Sudan during the next year, according to a report released by a representative of Stop the Violence Coalition in Sudan.
According to the report, the Jews settled in Sudan have bought a lot of land in Juba and the other cities of the country since South Sudan became an independent state on 7 July 2011
Since the independence of South Sudan, there has been tens of daily flights by planes carrying military weapons into the country and according to an article released by Sudanese newspaper of Al-intibaha, Israel plans to build two military bases in the two provinces in newly-established South Sudan state.

Lobbying for a US war with Iran, AIPAC is pushing a bill that would prohibit diplomacy between the two nations.

Wasting no time after its success in getting the administration to oppose Palestinian statehood at the United Nations, and still celebrating the UNESCO funding cutoff, AIPAC has returned to its number one priority: Pushing for war with Iran.
The Israelis have, of course, played their own part in the big show. In the past few weeks, Israel has been sending out signals that it is getting ready to bomb Iran's nuclear facilities (and embroil the United States in its most calamitous Middle East war yet).
But most observers do not believe an Israeli attack is imminent. (If it were, would Israel telegraph it in advance?) The point of the Israeli threats is to get the United States and the world community to increase pressure on Iran with the justification that unless it does, Israel will attack.

Ileana Ros-Lehtinen introduced the bill to cut off US funding to any UN organization that recognises Palestinian statehood.

Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (also known as Ileana Ros; is a Cuban-American born as Ileana Ros y Adato July 15, 1952) is the U.S. Representative for Florida's 18th congressional district, serving since 1989.Her maternal grandparents were Sephardic Jews from Turkey who became active in Cuba’s Jewish community. Her mother converted to Catholicism. She is a member of the Republican Party.

She is currently the most senior Republican woman in the U.S. House, and was the first Republican woman elected to the House of Representatives from Florida. She is chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, effective 2011.

She was a member of the Florida House of Representatives from 1982 to 1986, and was then a one-term member of the Florida Senate before entering the House.
Prior to entering political life, Ros-Lehtinen was an educator and the owner/operator of a private school in Miami-Dade County. Upon her election to succeed the late Congressman Claude Pepper, she became the first Cuban American and the first Hispanic woman elected to the United States Congress.
A major individual campaign contributor to Ros-Lehtinen is Irving Moskowitz, a funder of Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. The lobby group J Street has called on Ros-Lehtinen to return campaign contributions from Moskowitz, saying he "actively works to derail the chances for a two-state solution".
