is costing the US billions$, harming America’s reputation & diplomatic relations, jeopardizing the lives on in Gaza… “What if I told you there's a way to get aid into Gaza that doesn't cost $320M, deliver just 89 trucks in a week, then fall apart in rough seas & have to be towed away?” -J Konyndyk “A small US MIL vessel was towing the back to the port of Ashdod overnight due to poor sea conditions -ran aground, a sep. US vessel beached, US/IL…” -N Bertrand

According to CENTCOM, the floating pier is fully functional now & aid trucks will also be entering Rafah from Egypt, because Pres El-SIsi agreed to restart deliveries after a call from Pres Biden. https://apple.news/AnGKBkir2SvOUjmdo8La5Mg

Since America has a capitalistic political system, the US may finally change its stance on Israel, given that it’s impacting US businesses, & the ICJ ordered Israel to immediately halt the Rafah offensive, with increasing support of US allies. “US fast food brands, incl. McDonald’s & KFC, are facing a challenging operating environment weighed by calls to boycott their brands due to perceived links to Israel.” https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2024-05-24/anti-israel-boycotts-hurting-mcdonald-s-kfc-in-asia-mideast

The top U.N. court ordered Israel Friday to halt military operations in Rafah, a landmark ruling likely to increase international pressure for a cease-fire more than seven months into the war sparked by Hamas' Oct. 7 attack. https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2024/05/25/world/politics/icj-israel-rafah-halt-order/

There's hope for a halt to the war in Gaza, but Netanyahu likely won't comply. The US may side with him. Most countries are supportive a #ceasefire.

"The ICJ rules that Israel must halt its military offensive in Rafah in southern Gaza. South Africa had asked the ICJ to order it as an emergency measure, saying Israel’s actions in Rafah amount to a “genocidal” operation & threaten the survival of the Palestinian people."

How does the Israel-Hamas war end? With Hamas holding firm and fighting back in Gaza, Israel faces only bad options, according to an AP analysis.

The news service reports that some analysts are "drawing comparisons with U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan."

There should be a majority of Dems, & some Republicans, given the ICC charges against Netanyahu, but...

"Some Democrats don't want Schumer to sign an invite for Netanyahu to address Congress.

The Israeli PM "should be focused on freeing hostages, not on charming legislators," said top House Intel Dem Jim Himes."

The US, so far, is supporting Netanyahu & Gallant, against the ICC arrest warrants; whereas its allies, Germany, France, Spain, Norway, Ireland..., human rights & aid organizations... support the ICC's decision.

Germany declared its support for the International Criminal Court's arrest warrants against Israeli PM Netanyahu.

US & others put heat on Israel re their crackdown against AP:

"Israeli Minister of Communications Shlomo Karhi caves":

"Since the Ministry of Defense wishes to examine the matter of the broadcasts from these locations in Sderot regarding the risk to our forces, I have now ordered to cancel the operation & return the equipment to the AP, until a different decision is made by the Ministry of DEF"
-B Ravid

US asks Israel to reverse crackdown against AP.

RW politicians like , side with Netanyahu, disregard his war crimes & insufficient aid going into Gaza:

Johnson threatens ICC sanctions vote over Netanyahu arrest warrant application.

Rep Roy has introduced a bill that would sanction ICC officials who investigate U.S. citizens or allies. It's supported by nearly two dozen other Republicans, including Rep Stefanik, chair of the House Republican Conference.

Oppressive regimes control & selectively remove media coverage, SM..., that keep them accountable. Netanyahu may be covering up more war crimes:

Israeli officials seize AP EQP & take down live shot of northern Gaza, citing new media law. The QA satellite channel is among 1000s of clients that receive live video feeds from the AP & other news orgs. The AP denounced the move.

Suspending humanitarian aid is a war crime:

"Israel's obstruction of aid: The UN "has suspended food distribution in the southern Gaza city of Rafah due to lack of supplies and insecurity. It also said no aid trucks entered via a pier set up by the U.S. for sea deliveries for the past two days."
