A meeting between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US national security adviser Jake Sullivan is under way in Tel Aviv.
Sullivan arrived in Israel for talks with top officials, as Israeli forces continue the offensive against Hamas in Gaza and disagreements with the US deepen.
Yesterday, Netanyahu said nothing would stop the war, in reference to growing international pressure for a ceasefire amid mounting civilian casualties and a severe humanitarian crisis.

Sullivan is expected to push for a timeline for the end of the war and for Israel to increase efforts to protect civilians.
The visit happens just days after President Joe Biden made his strongest comments yet about the Israeli military conduct, saying Israel was starting to lose support internationally with its “indiscriminate bombing” of Gaza, something that has been rejected by Israel.
Gaps are also widening over who should govern post-war Gaza. The US supports the view that the Palestinian Authority, which currently administers parts of the Israeli-occupied West Bank, take over control of Gaza - something that Netanyahu has rejected for now.

Some in Israeli media suggest that Netanyahu, by openly disagreeing with the Biden administration, is trying to appeal to his right-wing base.
Netanyahu, who is on trial for corruption charges, is under pressure for the security failings that did not prevent the Hamas attacks on 7 October.

This is what Interational Law should be focusing on not forcing countries to accept unlimited numbers of immigrants.

This migrant boat - in a separate incident - tried to cross the Channel in October.

[size=inherit]One person has died and another is in a critical condition after a boat carrying migrants got into difficulty in the Channel.[/size]

There were 66 people on board the boat, which got into trouble about 8km (5 miles) from the French coast, according to the French coastguard.

The survivors have been taken to Calais, where the injured person is being treated in hospital.

The French coastguard said two other people may still be missing.

A spokesperson for the coastguard said no other people had been found in the search for survivors.

Searches are continuing by air and sea, the coastguard said.

French officials said they reached the boat at 01:15 local time (00:15 GMT), finding that one of the boat's tubes was deflated and there were people in the water.

Two of the rescued migrants were found unconscious, with one in a life-threatening condition evacuated by helicopter to a Calais hospital.

The other could not be resuscitated.

I'm past the point of caring about their fate in the Channel tbh, if they stayed in France this wouldn't happen and we wouldn't be suffering 'enrichment' on an industrial scale.


 I keep seeing stories like this:


A manhunt is underway across the country after a convicted rapist went on the run, as police urge the public not to approach him.
Muarug Abraham Gebremcal, 34, is a black African male from Eritrea who is being hunted by officers in London, the Midlands and the West Country.
He was convicted of rape at Exeter Crown Court in September and was released by the courts on bail prior to sentencing.


  I bet he's not back in Eritrea.  ???

Glory be.


Wonder who put up the bail money - check


Released on bail seems to be a loophole.
