ISRAEL-U.S.: Thousands of pro-Palestinian protesters on Saturday surrounded the White House with a red banner meant to evoke a "red line" that the Biden administration allegedly set and overlooked on Israel's actions in Rafah. Some protesters carried pro-Hamas posters and insignia, and a statue of French General Jean-Baptiste Rochambeau was defaced with graffiti.

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken welcomed the news of the four hostages rescued Saturday, and said that "the only thing standing in the way of achieving this cease-fire is Hamas. It is time for them to accept the deal."

U.S. Central Command said on Sunday that the Gaza humanitarian pier was not used in Israel's hostage rescue operation: "An area south of the facility was used by the Israelis to safely return the hostages to Israel. Any such claim to the contrary is false."

Vice President Kamala Harris, addressing Israel's rescue operation at the Michigan Democratic Party dinner on Saturday, told the crowd: "Thankfully, four of those hostages were reunited with their families tonight. And we mourn all of the innocent lives that have been lost in Gaza, including those tragically killed today."

Speaking on the Palestinian casualties of the Israeli operation on CNN, National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said: "The exact number, we don't know, but innocent people were killed and that is heartbreaking." He added that the U.S. "did not participate militarily in this operation" and declined to detail intelligence-related matters. Sullivan told CBS that cease-fire negotiators are still waiting for an official response from Hamas.
■ LEBANON: Hezbollah said on Saturday that it had fired a salvo of Falaq-2 rockets at a military command center in northern Israel for the first time.

Rockets and a drone fired from Lebanon sparked fires in parts of Israel's north on Sunday. Firefighters are currently operating in the northern part of the Golan Heights, and blazes near Kfar Szold and Nahal Hermon have been brought under control.
■ WEST BANK: The Palestinian Red Crescent reported six Palestinians were wounded by settlers and the Israeli army in the village of Urif, near Nablus. The Red Crescent said four were hit by live fire. The Israeli army said it shot in response to stone throwing and that a fire suspected to be arson broke out earlier near the West Bank settlement of Yitzhar. While extinguishing the fire, the army said settlers arrived and threw rocks at Palestinians.

Nuking wouldn't solve this issue. The people of Iran are oppressed by their government, I have a Persian family, and they all hate the government. They had two uprisings in the last decade and were gunned down and arrested murdered, and the West did nothing.
I worked with an Iranian electrician for about 3 years. He said much the same. He called the religious leaders "The Crazies".

Haven’t we taken this whole goat rodeo way too seriously for way too long? I mean, the practice & procedures have been exposed from early on in the first month or two after Oct 7th…and shouldn’t we just run with the dark humour of it at this point?

Well, not like that wasn’t telegraphed well in advance. No surprise and much warning.

Well, since it's two ministers that have now quit, it's a kink in his government but I doubt it'll change much.

That said, it's more proof that not all Israeli's are okay with what he's doing, despite how much some "in the West" would call them Anti-Jewish or Jew Haters, even if they are Jewish themselves.

The move does not immediately pose a threat to Netanyahu, who still controls a majority coalition in parliament. But the Israeli leader becomes more heavily reliant on far-right allies who oppose the latest U.S.-backed cease-fire proposal and want to press ahead with the war.

Now if Israel just repeats this failure 30-ish times in the next two months while negotiating for a cease-fire with Palestinian/Hamas/Islamic Jihad/etc…& see if they come to some type of mutual understanding.

You sure about that? Maybe you need to look into Israel a bit more.

who still controls a majority coalition in parliament.

COALITION, not absolute majority.

But the Israeli leader becomes more heavily reliant on far-right allies who oppose the latest U.S.-backed cease-fire proposal and want to press ahead with the war.

LOL - Ron, he's ALWAYS been reliant on them; he can't be anymore reliant on them now than before... he doesn't do a damned thing without their 'approval' and it's been that way for a while.

Now if Israel just repeats this failure 30-ish times in the next two months while negotiating for a cease-fire with Palestinian/Hamas/Islamic Jihad/etc…& see if they come to some type of mutual understanding.

... yeah no.

Israel wants ALL Palestinians gone. Not just those in Gaza but the West Bank too.

But you and others are okay with that so whatever.

I’m sure, from the outside looking in, we all do.

Yep…like Trudeau, who currently controls government here in Canada.

Emphasis on the “more” above… as in a greater or additional amount of something.

Keep in mind the "far Right" are Ruskies. Secular and Chabad left are Yankees. They will flip to Putin if shit goes south with the west.

Unless you also keep at least a rudamentry interest in what goes on inside Israel. Some of us do, you know. Which is why we're against BooBoo Yahoo.

Yep…like Trudeau, who currently controls government here in Canada.

And if someone from his coalition left, it'd be HUGE, and also a sign he's in trouble.

So why are you flippant about it?

Emphasis on the “more” above… as in a greater or additional amount of something.

When a good chunk of his coalition is right wing, and BooBoo himself is right wing to disgusting levels, how much "more" do you need?

That the centrist types are leaving is a BAD sign, because it means actual people who give a damn about the entire issue are leaving this fuckery of a Government and won't be there to hold them accountable.

The Biden administration reportedly discussed securing a deal with Hamas for the release of five U.S. citizens held in Gaza in case current talks involving Israel fail. U.S. Secretary of State Blinken landed in Israel for his eighth visit since October 7. The UN Security Council is set to vote on a U.S. resolution backing the truce proposal presented by President Biden. Israel's allies worry that Benny Gantz's departure from Netanyahu's government will strengthen extremists in the coalition. Far-right minister Smotrich told family members of hostages that agreeing to the current hostage release/prisoner exchange deal with Hamas is tantamount to "collective suicide." An Israeli drone was downed in Lebanon.

Family members of hostages at the Knesset Finance Committee, on Monday.

■ HOSTAGES/CEASE-FIRE: Hamas is the only one who is not accepting the proposal for a three-phase deal involving the release of hostages and talks toward an end to fighting, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said as he departed to the Middle East, adding that he was urging leaders in the region to press Hamas to say yes to the proposal.

The UN Security Council is set to vote Monday on a U.S. drafted resolution backing the Israel-Hamas cease-fire proposal outlined by U.S. President Biden.

The Biden administration has discussed examining the possibility of securing a deal with Hamas that would lead to the release of five U.S. citizens being held hostage in Gaza if the current cease-fire talks involving Israel fail, NBC News reported. Responding to the report, PM Netanyahu's office said "Israel welcomes any attempt to free our hostages."

In a Knesset committee session, Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich confronted family members of hostages held in Gaza, saying that he will not support the potential cease-fire deal with Hamas because the organization is "demanding the release of hundreds of murderers" from Israeli prisons. He added that Israel will do everything in its power to release the hostages, but the government will not agree to a move that is tantamount to "a collective suicide."

Senior Hamas official Sami Abu Zuhri urged the United States on Monday to pressure Israel to end the war in Gaza, adding that "the Hamas movement is ready to deal positively with any initiative that secures an end to the war."

A convoy of vehicles belonging to members of the Hostages and Missing Families Forum traveled from the Amiad junction in northern Israel to the southern city of Kiryat Gat, calling for a deal to secure the release of hostages held by Hamas.

Shlomi Ziv, who was held hostage by Hamas and was rescued from Gaza on Saturday by Israeli forces, was released from the hospital on Monday.

■ GAZA: According to the Hamas-controlled Health Ministry in Gaza, at least 37,124 Palestinians have been killed and 84,712 wounded since the start of the war.

"Perhaps Israel will have other opportunities for daring rescue operations that will similarly entail significant risks. But given the rate at which hostages have been freed through military action since October – seven of them in three separate operations (and several other operations failed) – there's no reason to think they can all be freed by force of arms" – Amos Harel

■ ISRAEL: The Tel Aviv District Court will discuss the state's request to renew the order to stop Al Jazeera broadcasts in Israel on Tuesday. On Sunday, the Communications Minister extended the order by 45 days, but this requires the approval of the court.

Israel's High Court of Justice issued a conditional order instructing the state to justify why the law to stop Al Jazeera broadcasts should not be repealed.

A rocket that was launched from Lebanon into Israel fell in the northern Kibbutz of Menara, causing a fire in one of its houses.

Following the resignation of centrist ministers Benny Gantz and Gadi Eisenkot from Netanyahu's wartime government on Sunday night, Western diplomats who spoke with Haaretz voiced concerns regarding the growing influence of far-right actors within the government.

■ ISRAEL-U.S.: U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken landed in Israel on Monday for his eight visit since October 7 following a stop in Cairo, where he met Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sissi to discuss efforts to secure a cease-fire and hostage release deal between Israel and Hamas. Blinken is meeting with PM Netanyahu on Monday evening, as well as Benny Gantz, the leader of the National Unity Party who resigned from Netanyahu's wartime emergency government on Sunday.

The United States is close to finalizing a defense treaty with Saudi Arabia, but the move depends on Israel's commitment to a two-state solution and ending the war in the Gaza Strip, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing sources familiar with the talks.

"Whatever Gantz thought he could gain by being in the government has now run its course. Israel is stuck on all fronts and has been now for months. If even Gantz, the man who always salutes and reports for duty, is now leaving the war cabinet, this government is totally useless'" – Anshel Pfeffer

■ LEBANON: The IDF said the Air Force struck Hezbollah targets in southern Lebanon. Aerial infiltration and rocket sirens blared across northern Israel throughout Monday. A "suspicious aerial target" crossed into Israel from Lebanon and was shot down. Two hostile aircrafts fell in the Golan Heights, starting a brush fire. Hezbollah claimed responsibility for the launches, as well as intercepting an Israeli drone in Lebanon, which was later confirmed by the IDF.
Five people were lightly wounded due to a fire that started after Hezbollah drones crashed in northern Israel, according to Ziv Medical Center in Safed.

■ WEST BANK: The Palestinian Health Ministry in Ramallah said that a 15-year-old Palestinian was killed by IDF fire in the refugee camp of Al-Fari'ah near the city of Nablus. According to Palestinian sources, another Palestinian was killed by the Israeli forces in Tulkarm. Hamas later said that a Palestinian killed by the IDF in Tulkarm was a member of the organization.
The IDF said its forces conducted an anti-terror operation in the West Bank overnight into Monday, during which several militants were killed.

A trailer used by settlers who live in Sde Ephraim, an outpost located northwest of Ramallah, was set on fire overnight into Monday. No casualties were reported. The family that lives in the trailer spent the night elsewhere by chance, according to the Mateh Binyamin Regional Council.

Ya right! Hamas isn't willing to deal unless Israel is totally destroyed. Who are these dummies who are doing the negotiating anyway? They obviously don't know (or care) about the history of the region.
