1. 'We're moving towards recognition of Golan Heights' - Israel National News
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu today toured the Golan Heights with US Sen. Lindsey Graham and US Ambassador David Friedman.
Netanyahu told Graham, "This isn't your first visit to the Golan Heights, but I think every time you come here, you can appreciate the strategic importance of Israel's presence on the Golan Heights and the fact that we're creating a new life here, a green life, a future. It's very different from what was here before.
"The Golan Heights have always been part of Israel since the first days of our history, and it's definitely part of the State of Israel since 1967, and more recently, since 1981. The Golan Heights are part of Israel and must remain part of Israel forever. I think it's important that the international community recognize this fact and accept it, and especially our great friend, the United States," added Netanyahu.
2. Netanyahu: Money To Hamas Part Of Strategy To Keep Palestinians Divided- Jerusalem Post
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defended Israel's regular allowing of Qatari funds to be transferred into Gaza, saying it is part of a broader strategy to keep Hamas and the Palestinian Authority separate, a source in Monday's Likud faction meeting said.
Netanyahu explained that, in the past, the PA transferred the millions of dollars to Hamas in Gaza. He argued that it was better for Israel to serve as the pipeline to ensure the funds don't go to terrorism.
"Now that we are supervising, we know it's going to humanitarian causes," the source said, paraphrasing Netanyahu.
The prime minister also said that, "whoever is against a Palestinian state should be for" transferring the funds to Gaza, because maintaining a separation between the PA in the West Bank and Hamas in Gaza helps prevent the establishment of a Palestinian state.
3. A-G Agrees to Hold Back Netanyahu Pre-Indictment Hearing, Transfer of Evidence Until After Election - Jewish Press
Israel's Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit has agreed to hold the pre-indictment hearing for a possible indictment of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on corruption charges until after the upcoming April 9 national elections.
In addition, Mandelblit has said he will also hold transfer of evidence against the prime minister to his attorneys and to all of the other associated defendants in the case - effectively making it public - until April 10, the day after the public casts its ballots.
The news is a win for Netanyahu, who requested the delay in order to avert any adverse impact on the polls.
4. Abbas hopes Gantz leads next Israeli government - Israel National News
Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas is hopeful that Blue and White chief Benny Gantz can unseat Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in the upcoming elections next month, senior PA officials in Ramallah say, adding that the aging PA leader prefers to deal with Gantz because he is 'inexperienced'.
According to a report Monday by Israel Hayom, senior PA officials said that Abbas has expressed a clear preference for a Blue and White victory in the April 9th elections, in the hopes that the former IDF Chief of Staff Gantz replaces Netanyahu as premier.
"The Palestinian leadership prefers Gantz and the Blue and White list at the helm," one senior PA official said.
Another said that a in Abbas' office, "it is clear in Ramallah that they prefer to see Gantz and Lapid at the head of the next ruling party in Israel, even though [Gantz and Lapid] aren't the same as the leaders of Meretz and Peace Now."
5. Jewish Home: Committed to the south and to defeating Hamas - Israel National News
Jewish Home and United Right Chairman Rabbi Rafi Peretz said, "What brought me from the Halutza sand dunes to the Religious Zionist leadership are the values we grew up on: Being there for the State's right, with faith, taking responsibility, aiming for better in Torah, in the workplace, in academia, in yeshiva, aiming for more in the army, in the Torah's commandments, for more in spirit, and for more accomplished."
"Our commitment is not just to our sector of society, it's a commitment to the entire nation of Israel. I have religious children and non-religious children, some serve in the Matkal (elite IDF unit - ed.) and some in National Service, and I love them all. This is the path that I walked as an IDF rabbi. I was the rabbi of both male and female soldiers.
"Elections are in less than thirty days, and we will be voting on Israel's future. We are committed to the path of Torah, of our nation, of Israel. We're committed to security, the economy, the settlements, and the periphery."

About Capitol Hill Prayer Partners
Our Mission Statement
Capitol Hill Prayer Partners (CHPP) is a ministry which is positioned on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., helping members of the Body of Christ to "pray for those in authority over us" in our federal government. Our primary purpose is to offer intercession on site for the members of Congress and their staffs each day that the Senate and the House of Representatives are in session; and our chief prayer focus is that "God's will be done in earth, as it is in heaven." [Matthew 6:10].
Because Jesus Christ has shed His blood for all, we, too, pray for ALL, in a nonpartisan manner. Also, because the scriptures indicate that "the effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much" (James 4:17), we are confident that fervent prayer, offered in the halls of the highest chambers of government in our land, can avail much for America. Capitol Hill Prayer Partners welcomes those who feel called to join us, engaging in this strategic work of intercession for our nation: "For there is no power but of God; the powers that be are ordained of God."
