    During Sunday’s broadcast of CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) voiced his disapproval of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s leadership. Clyburn, a confidant of President Joe Biden, argued Netanyahu’s leadership had been bad for Israel. However, he would not go as far as to say Biden agreed with him about Netanyahu. “When it comes to Israel, should he stick with his position on Prime Minister Netanyahu or perhaps rethink that relationship?” “Face the Nation” host Robert Costa asked.

    National Unity party chairman Minister Benny Gantz addressed the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations today (Sunday) and discussed the war against Hamas and criticized international attempts to impose a Palestinian state at this time. Gantz began his remarks by saying that "Our home is under attack. Today, and since October 7th - We have all come together to defend it." "October 7th was a vile display of our enemy’s inhumanity," he said. "What followed, were waves of antisemitism around the world, on the streets and campuses, leaving us with one clear takeaway." Gantz called for the formation...

    President Isaac Herzog meets with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference. In public remarks before the meeting, Blinken says the US is “doing everything possible” to return the hostages held by Hamas and stresses the Biden administration is “thinking, as we always do, about Israel’s security both today, but also for every day, for the long term.” “We’re thinking of the suffering of people caught up in the middle of conflict, including the Palestinian men, women and children in Gaza,” he says. “We’re thinking as well of the genuine opportunities that lie...

This is one option to widening the Philadelphia Corridor, reported Channel 2 news Sunday. The army is considering...

    A spokesperson for Egypt’s foreign ministry says Cairo is concerned at the potential for a mass effort by Gazans to escape across the border when the Israel Defense Forces expands its operations in Rafah. In an interview with the Egyptian news channel al-Ghad, Ahmed Abu Zeid, a spokesperson for Cairo’s Foreign Ministry, says that Egypt sees the situation Gaza’s southern Rafah region as “unbearable and catastrophic.” “Continuing Israeli strikes on densely populated areas will create an unlivable reality. The scenario of mass displacement is a possibility. The Egyptian position on this has been very clear and straightforward: We are against...

    A senior White House official said on Saturday in a press briefing that the evacuation of the wounded and foreign citizens from Gaza was delayed because Hamas had tried to take some of its wounded fighters through the Rafah crossing to Egypt for treatment, Hebrew media sourced the official as saying. "A third of the people who were on the list that Hamas submitted turned out to be Hamas fighters," said the official.

    Mor Cohen-Shamli, the wide of Alon, who was murdered two weeks ago in a terror attack in Egypt, spoke about the fiasco at the scene of the murder and the autopsy that was performed on her husband without her permission. "We chose an organized group trip so it would be safer," she told Kan Reshet Bet. "We had a day left to the trip. The Egyptians decided to increase our security. We said it would make us stand out, but they insisted that it was the correct thing." She pointed out that "the affair was very strange, we got no...

    A monitoring group in Egypt has released evidence of construction work taking place in Rafah on the border with Gaza that may be intended to house Palestinians fleeing from the potential Israeli assault on the city. Photos and videos released by the Sinai Foundation for Human Rights (SFHR), a monitoring group, have captured workers operating heavy machinery and erecting concrete walls and security towers along the border with Gaza near the Rafah crossing. The videos, dated February 15th, don’t appear to show the Egyptian authorities installing water or other infrastructure, and satellite images published by Planet Labs on the same...

    US forces operating in the Arabian Sea have seized a massive arsenal of Iranian weapons that were bound for Houthi rebels in Yemen, the latest indication that Tehran plans to prolong the conflict in the region by supplying the terror group.

Another photo showed the cache of contraband that was found on board. The weaponry included materials necessary for ballistic missiles, anti tank rockets and explosives as well as communication equipment.

    Jordan’s King Abdullah gives one of his most pointed criticisms of Hamas’s October 7 terror onslaught. “All attacks against innocent civilians, women and children, including those of October 7, cannot be accepted by any Muslim,” he says alongside US President Joe Biden. “As I have previously stressed, we must make sure the horrors of the past few months since October 7, are never repeated, nor accepted by any human being.” “We must together, along with Arab partners and the international community, step up efforts to reach a ceasefire in Gaza and immediately start working to create a political horizon that...

    In an exciting turn for the archeological community, a 2,800-year-old engraved stone known as a “scarab” was discovered in Israel’s Tabor Stream Nature Reserve by hiker Erez Avrahamov in early February. Avrahamov, 45, found the scarab, a small orange stone roughly the size of a thumbnail, during a recreational hike in the Lower Galilee. “I had a two-day leave from the military and decided to take advantage of the sunny days for a trip,” Avrahamov recounted. “During the trip, I saw something sparkling on the ground. At first, I thought it was a bead or an orange stone. After picking...

    In Plato’s account of Atlantis, found in both Timaeus and Critias, the legendary island civilization supposedly fought a war against the Greeks. This is a vital part of the account, for it is the whole reason why Plato included it in these dialogues. However, is there any evidence that this legendary war between Atlantis and the Greeks really happened? Plato’s account of the war against Atlantis In Timaeus, written around 360 BCE, Socrates expresses his wish to hear an account about Athens in action. Critias responds that he knows of such an account. He then goes on to tell Socrates...

How will this change the platform?The Israel Gaza war is impacting how people consume social media, even on generally apolitical platforms such as LinkedIn.

Since its acquisition by Microsoft in 2016, however, LinkedIn has become an active content platform, too. Since October 7, the amount of political content posted on LinkedIn is unprecedented, breaking a social norm on the platform. LinkedIn...

    What is the Israeli Defense Force supposed to do with a million or so Palestinian refugees as their operations to kill every last Hamas wipes the Gaza Strip from north to south like a giant, well-armed squeegee? The President of Egypt, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, who is sometimes mistaken for the President of Mexico, has an answer to that vexing question — and it's something of a completely routine miracle how the mainstream media and the Global Professional Outrage Machine have both ignored it. The essence of el-Sisi's answer is: "Do what you will to the Palestinians, Israel, but they aren't...

    Senior Hamas Nukhba Brigade Commander Abu al-Baraa told the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) during interrogations on Thursday that he had a message for the remaining Hamas fighters, "I recommend everyone surrender, your fate is death." The Shin Bet published parts of their investigation of Hamas operative Muhammad Nasir Suleiman Abu-Namr or Abu al-Baraa - who told them about the moments when he was captured and how he and his friends chose to lay down their arms and surrender. The Shin Bet said that Abu al-Baraa was caught hiding behind an armored door in a tunnel deep under Khan Yunis,...

    Australian police are investigating threats against a five-year-old Jewish child amid an uproar over the publication online of a list of hundreds of Jewish creatives’ personal information by prominent pro-Palestinian activists. Hundreds of Jewish academics and creatives who joined a private WhatsApp group last year had their personal information shared publicly by the activists this week. At least one family has gone into hiding amid ensuing harassment, Josh Burns, a Jewish Australian lawmaker, said during a radio interview on Friday morning, prompting shock from the interviewer. “They were completely shattered by this whole experience, where a sort of lynch mob...

    Greek writing inside a 2,000-year-old scroll burned during the 79 CE eruption of Mount Vesuvius has been deciphered by a team of student researchers. This latest development may lead not only to the discovery of a previously illegible text, but also pave the way for new applications of artificial intelligence to the archaeological field. The scroll hails from the luxury Roman villa Herculaneum and is one of more than 1,800 intact papyri turned carbonized ash, known as the Herculaneum scrolls, excavated in the 18th century. The scrolls that have previously been read relate to the Athenian philosophy of Epicurus who...

    The American economy can’t catch a break. In addition to the massive price inflation of food, cars, housing, energy, and so many other elements, international companies are now suffering from a near-doubling of ocean transportation costs in just the past three months, due to simultaneous crises in Central America and the Red Sea that have restricted international shipping through the Panama and Suez Canals. This is adding to the cost of goods all over the world, along with damaging lead times, as longer transits cause disruptions to both factory schedules and retail offerings. For thousands of years, ocean carriers moved...
