Israel Accepts Biden’s Gaza Plan Amid Concerns: Netanyahu Aide Calls it “Not a Good Deal”

Published

Ophir Falk, Netanyahu’s Chief Foreign Policy Adviser, Reveals Israel’s Reluctant Agreement to U.S. President Biden’s Framework for Ending the Gaza War

Jerusalem — In a notable yet contentious decision, an aide to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu confirmed on Sunday that Israel has accepted a framework deal proposed by U.S. President Joe Biden to de-escalate the Gaza conflict. Despite the agreement, the aide described the deal as deeply flawed, requiring substantial amendments.

In an interview with Britain’s Sunday Times, Ophir Falk, Netanyahu’s chief foreign policy adviser, revealed, “It’s a deal we agreed to — it’s not a good deal but we dearly want the hostages released, all of them.” He emphasized that significant details remain unresolved, particularly regarding Israel’s core demands: the release of hostages and the complete dismantling of Hamas as a genocidal terrorist organization.

Biden’s proposal marks a shift from his initial unconditional support for Israel’s offensive, which has drawn global criticism due to its high civilian toll. On Friday, Biden outlined a three-phase plan devised by the Netanyahu government aimed at ending the war. The first phase involves a truce and the return of some hostages held by Hamas. This would be followed by negotiations on an open-ended cessation of hostilities during which remaining captives would be freed.

However, this sequence suggests that Hamas might continue to have a role in mediated arrangements by Egypt and Qatar, potentially conflicting with Israel’s goal of eliminating the Iranian-backed group.

Biden has previously endorsed several ceasefire initiatives with similar frameworks, all of which have faltered. In February, he announced that Israel had agreed to halt fighting by Ramadan, yet no such truce emerged. The primary obstacle has been Israel’s stance on only agreeing to temporary pauses until Hamas is eradicated. Hamas, conversely, demands a path to a permanent end to the conflict as a condition for releasing hostages.

In his speech, Biden claimed that his latest plan “creates a better ‘day after’ in Gaza without Hamas in power,” though he admitted the need for further negotiations to transition from phase one to phase two. Falk reaffirmed that “there will not be a permanent ceasefire until all our objectives are met.”

Netanyahu faces internal political pressure to maintain his coalition government. Far-right partners have threatened to withdraw support if any agreement appears to spare Hamas, while centrist ally and former general Benny Gantz supports considering Biden’s plan.

Hamas has tentatively welcomed the Biden initiative. Senior Hamas official Osama Hamdan told Al Jazeera, “Biden’s speech included positive ideas, but we want this to materialize within the framework of a comprehensive agreement that meets our demands.” Hamas’s conditions include an end to the Gaza offensive, withdrawal of invading forces, unrestricted movement for Palestinians, and reconstruction aid.

Israeli officials, however, reject these conditions, viewing them as a return to the pre-October 7 status quo. On that date, Hamas militants initiated the war by breaching the border fence, killing 1,200 people, and taking over 250 hostages, according to Israeli reports.

The ensuing Israeli military response has devastated Gaza, with more than 36,000 Palestinians killed, as reported by Gaza medical officials. Israel has also suffered significant casualties, with 290 troops reported dead.

As negotiations and political maneuvers continue, the path to a durable peace in Gaza remains fraught with complexities and mutual distrust, making Biden’s proposal a pivotal yet controversial step in the ongoing conflict.

Massive Protests Erupt in Jerusalem Against Netanyahu’s War Policies

Published

on

Thousands of Israelis staged a massive demonstration in Jerusalem on Monday, voicing strong opposition to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s handling of the ongoing war in Gaza. The protest, which began outside the Knesset, Israel’s parliament, eventually moved to Netanyahu’s personal residence, signaling widespread discontent.

The demonstrators demanded that the Israeli government negotiate with Hamas to secure the release of the remaining hostages taken by the Palestinian militant group during their deadly raid on southern Israel last October. Additionally, protesters called for early parliamentary elections, expressing frustration with the current leadership.

Tensions escalated as some protesters attempted to breach police barricades, prompting security forces to use water cannons to disperse the crowd. The unrest highlighted the deepening dissatisfaction with Netanyahu’s wartime strategies and the political instability plaguing the country.

The protests came shortly after Netanyahu disbanded his war cabinet, a move anticipated following the resignations of centrist ex-generals Benny Gantz and Gadi Eisenkot. Both had stepped down last week due to disagreements over the war’s direction. Gantz, who had joined Netanyahu’s unity government at the war’s outset, had been instrumental in forming the war cabinet.

The disbandment has raised concerns about the effectiveness and unity of Israel’s government during a critical period. However, the White House described the dissolution as an internal matter, with the State Department reiterating that the U.S. will continue its interactions with Netanyahu’s administration.

In a related development, the Israeli military announced an 11-hour “tactical pause” in operations in parts of the southern Gaza Strip to facilitate the delivery of humanitarian aid. This pause, which applies to about 12 kilometers of road in the Rafah area, is intended to allow aid trucks to safely reach the Kerem Shalom crossing and distribute essential supplies to other parts of Gaza.

Despite the tactical pause, the broader conflict continues unabated. The limited halt aims to address the dire humanitarian situation in Gaza, where more than a million displaced Palestinians are in desperate need of aid. The United Nations has welcomed the pause but stressed the need for more comprehensive measures to address the humanitarian crisis.

Internationally, there have been calls for a complete ceasefire, with proposals for a six-week halt in fighting to facilitate broader negotiations, including the release of more hostages by Hamas. However, no significant breakthroughs in ceasefire talks have been reported.

Domestically, Netanyahu’s government faces criticism from ultranationalists who oppose any cessation of military actions. The ongoing conflict, marked by high civilian casualties and widespread displacement, has further strained Israel’s internal political landscape.

The mass protests in Jerusalem underscore the growing public frustration with Netanyahu’s leadership and the ongoing war in Gaza. As the political and humanitarian crises deepen, the calls for change and negotiations grow louder, challenging the government’s current approach and pushing for a reevaluation of strategies to address the conflict and its repercussions.

Netanyahu Dissolves War Cabinet Amidst Tactical Pause in Gaza

Published

on

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu dissolved his war cabinet following the departure of former General Benny Gantz, who had joined the unity government at the war’s outset in October. Gantz’s exit left Netanyahu to dismantle the war cabinet, as it had been formed at his insistence.

Israel announced a tactical pause in its military operations in southern Gaza, allowing for an 11-hour window each day for humanitarian aid to enter. This pause aims to address the severe humanitarian crisis, although sporadic fighting continues.

The pause facilitates aid delivery through the Kerem Shalom crossing to southern and central Gaza, including Khan Younis and makeshift camps. Despite this, the international community continues to push for a comprehensive cease-fire, which remains elusive.

The limited cease-fire is a response to urgent humanitarian needs but has faced criticism from ultranationalist factions within Netanyahu’s government. The U.N. welcomed the move, hoping it leads to more substantial measures to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Gaza.

The fighting in Gaza has resulted in significant casualties on both sides. Israel has reported over 300 soldier fatalities since the ground invasion began, while Hamas’s October 7 attack killed 1,200 Israelis and took 250 hostages. Gaza’s health officials report over 37,000 Palestinian deaths, including civilians and combatants.

Netanyahu’s decision to dissolve the war cabinet reflects ongoing political dynamics within Israel amidst the prolonged conflict with Hamas.

The tactical pause, although limited, aims to provide much-needed relief to the beleaguered population of Gaza, highlighting the complex interplay of military, humanitarian, and political factors in the region.

Biden softens comment on Netanyahu, Gaza war

Published

on

U.S. President Joe Biden, increasingly critical of Israel’s conduct of its war against Hamas militants in Gaza and a mounting Palestinian death toll, said in an interview published Tuesday that there is “every reason” to believe Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has dragged out the conflict to save himself politically.

But when asked later Tuesday whether Netanyahu was playing politics with the war, Biden seemed to backtrack, telling reporters, “I don’t think so. He’s trying to work out a serious problem he has.”

Last week, Biden announced an Israeli proposal for a Gaza cease-fire and pushed for global support of it. Hamas has yet to agree to it, and Netanyahu has been reserved in his comments about it, prompting Biden’s remark to Time magazine about Israel’s prime minister dragging out the war.

Netanyahu on Monday downplayed the immediate prospects for a cease-fire in the war with Hamas in Gaza, saying that a deal was a partial outline.

As the war nears the eight-month mark, the Israeli leader faces conflicting demands: Biden and other world leaders urge him to end the conflict, while right-wing lawmakers in the Israeli parliament say they will upend Netanyahu’s government if he agrees to a cease-fire without first erasing the last vestiges of Hamas control in Gaza.

Hamas said Tuesday it cannot agree to any deal unless Israel makes a “clear” commitment to a permanent cease-fire and a complete withdrawal of troops from Gaza. Netanyahu has often said Israeli forces will not leave Gaza without eliminating all Hamas elements from the territory.

Qatar, which alongside the United States and Egypt has been mediating Hamas-Israel talks in Cairo, has also urged Israel to provide a clear position on its intentions, one that has the backing of its entire government to reach a deal.

Biden acknowledged that he and Netanyahu have had tense relations as the death toll in Gaza has soared past the 36,000 mark — a figure that includes both civilians and combatants.

They are particularly at odds over whether a revitalized Palestinian Authority should govern Gaza after the war, which the United States favors, and Netanyahu rejects without offering a detailed plan of his own.

“My major disagreement with Netanyahu is, what happens after … Gaza’s over? What, what does it go back to? Do Israeli forces go back in?” Biden asked rhetorically.

“The answer is, if that’s the case, it can’t work,” he said.

White House national security spokesman John Kirby said Biden, in the Time interview, “was referencing what many critics have said” about Netanyahu’s actions, but that the U.S. will “let the prime minister speak to his own politics and to what his critics are saying.”

“For our part though, he and Prime Minister Netanyahu do not agree on everything, and he talked in that interview about some of the things they don’t agree on, such as on a two-state solution,” a newly formed Palestinian state living alongside Israel.

The fate of a proposal to halt fighting in Gaza remained uncertain Tuesday. Hamas has yet to give a definitive response to the proposal, Israeli officials are questioning some of the details, and the United States is seeking U.N. Security Council support for the deal’s acceptance and implementation.

A draft U.S. resolution seen by VOA calls on Hamas to fully accept and implement the cease-fire proposal “without delay and without condition.”

The basic outline of the deal includes a six-week halt in fighting, the release of some hostages from Gaza, daily deliveries of 600 trucks of aid for Palestinians, and further negotiations aimed at securing a permanent end to the conflict.

U.S. officials reiterated Monday that the cease-fire proposal, though presented publicly by Biden last week, is an Israeli proposal.

Kirby told reporters that making public negotiations that officials had declined to reveal in the past for fear of disrupting the negotiation process was not about putting pressure on Israeli officials, but rather, if anything, publicly pressuring Hamas and its leaders to accept the deal.

“The president felt that where we are in this war, where we are in the negotiations to get the hostages out, that it was time for a different approach and a time to make the proposal public, to try to energize the process here, catalyze a different outcome,” Kirby said.

Kirby said in earlier comments to reporters that if Hamas were to accept the proposal, Israel would, as well.

Netanyahu told a parliamentary committee Monday that “claims that we have agreed to a cease-fire without our conditions being met are incorrect,” according to a statement from his office.

Hamas launched the October 7 terror attack on Israel, killing about 1,200 people according to Israeli tallies, and taking roughly 250 hostages. About 120 of the hostages remain in Gaza, although the Israeli military says 37 of them are dead.

Israel’s retaliatory bombardments and ground offensive have killed at least 36,400 people in Gaza, mostly civilians, according to the Gaza Health Ministry.

On Tuesday, at least 11 Palestinians were killed in an Israeli airstrike in central Gaza, local hospitals said. Elsewhere, two policemen were killed while helping to protect humanitarian aid deliveries in Rafah, Palestinian medics told Reuters.

Some information for this report was provided by The Associated Press, Reuters and Agence France-Presse.

The Celebrity ‘Blockout’: Social Media Users Push for Accountability Over Gaza Conflict

Published

on

A grassroots movement pressures celebrities to take a stand on the humanitarian crisis in Gaza by blocking their social media content.

What is the Celebrity ‘Blockout’ Over the War in Gaza?

Social media users have initiated a “blockout” campaign to pressure celebrities into taking a stand on the humanitarian crisis in Gaza. The blockout involves users blocking the social media accounts of celebrities who they believe are not speaking out or doing enough against Israel’s actions in Gaza amidst its war with Hamas.

How Does the Blockout Work?

On platforms like X (formerly Twitter), TikTok, and Instagram, users can mute or block specific accounts. By blocking celebrities, users stop seeing their posts, photos, videos, and sponsored content. This action reduces the celebrities’ engagement metrics and potentially affects their income from social media activities. The goal is to divert attention away from these celebrities’ brands, thereby pressuring them to address the crisis.

Who is Being Blocked?

There isn’t a centralized list of celebrities to be blocked. Participants of the blockout choose whom to block based on personal criteria or suggestions from others. Celebrities from the U.S. and other countries are being targeted. Each social media user must block celebrities individually on each platform they use.

Origins of the Blockout

The blockout gained momentum following the recent Met Gala, a high-profile event known for its extravagant fashion displays. As images from the gala circulated online, they were juxtaposed with distressing images from Gaza, highlighting the stark contrast between the opulence of the event and the ongoing humanitarian crisis. This led to increased scrutiny of celebrities’ responses, or lack thereof, to the situation in Gaza.

Will the Blockout Be Effective?

The long-term effectiveness of the blockout remains uncertain. According to Beth Fossen, an assistant professor of marketing at Indiana University, the impact may vary depending on the celebrity’s brand and public persona. Celebrities known for their humanitarian efforts may face more significant backlash for their silence compared to those whose fame is primarily based on their talent or other attributes.

Blockout Backlash

The blockout has faced criticism from some quarters. Detractors argue that focusing on celebrities detracts from the real issues on the ground in Gaza. There are also debates about what constitutes adequate action or statements from celebrities, adding complexity to the movement’s goals.

In conclusion, the celebrity blockout is a digital protest aimed at leveraging social media dynamics to push celebrities into taking a public stand on the Gaza conflict. While its long-term effectiveness is yet to be determined, the movement highlights the growing expectation for public figures to engage with pressing global issues. The blockout also reflects broader tensions about how social media influences activism and accountability in the digital age.

Internal Tensions and External Pressures: The Fragility of Netanyahu’s Government

Analyzing the Implications of Gallant’s Threats and the Future of Israeli Politics

By Kasim Abdulkadir:

In a dramatic escalation of internal discord within the Israeli government, Defense Minister Yoav Gallant issued an ultimatum to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Gallant threatened to resign if Netanyahu does not agree to a new plan for governing Gaza post-war by June 8. This threat underscores the widening rift within Netanyahu’s coalition and raises questions about the government’s stability.

Growing Divisions Within the Government

The tensions within Netanyahu’s government are not new, but Gallant’s ultimatum brings them to the forefront. The core of the conflict lies in the government’s handling of the Gaza situation, particularly the strategy for post-war governance. Gallant’s call for a comprehensive plan reflects broader frustrations with the current administration’s approach and its lack of progress, particularly concerning the retrieval of prisoners detained in Gaza since October 7.

The Gaza Dilemma

Gallant’s proposed plan includes establishing a temporary US-European-Palestinian system for civil administration in Gaza while Israel maintains security control. This suggestion highlights the complexities of the Gaza situation—balancing security concerns with administrative governance in a densely populated and conflict-prone region. Defense Minister Yoav Galant’s resistance to the idea of a Palestinian state further complicates the matter, emphasizing the deep-seated ideological divides within the government.

Ministerial Discord and Public Discontent

The discord extends beyond Gallant and Netanyahu, permeating the entire ministerial landscape. Galant has faced fierce criticism from his colleagues, who blame him for the ongoing failures in Gaza. Galant’s stark opposition to Palestinian statehood and his pragmatic concerns about the cost of military rule in Gaza illustrate the ideological and strategic divides that hamper cohesive policy-making.

Netanyahu, meanwhile, is under immense pressure both domestically and internationally. The prolonged war with Hamas, now stretching beyond seven months, has eroded public confidence. Daily demonstrations and calls for Netanyahu’s resignation, especially from families of prisoners still held in Gaza, underscore the widespread discontent.

The Coalition’s Fragility

Despite Gallant’s ultimatum and the severe criticisms within the government, Netanyahu’s coalition remains intact—at least for now. Gallant’s potential withdrawal would not immediately collapse the government, as the remaining parties still provide Netanyahu with a majority in the Knesset. However, Gallant’s statements and the underlying tensions reveal significant fractures within the coalition.

Future Scenarios and Implications

The immediate future of Netanyahu’s government hinges on several key factors:

  1. Resolution of the Gaza Plan: Whether Netanyahu can forge a consensus on the post-war governance of Gaza will be crucial. A failure to address Gallant’s concerns may lead to further fragmentation.
  2. Public and Political Pressure: Continued public protests and political pressure from within his coalition could force Netanyahu to make significant concessions or risk further destabilization.
  3. International Dynamics: The involvement of international actors, particularly in Gallant’s proposed governance plan, could influence internal politics and provide a pathway for compromise.

In conclusion, the Israeli government’s current predicament underscores the inherent volatility of its coalition politics. Gallant’s threats and the broader discontent highlight the challenges facing Netanyahu’s leadership. While the immediate collapse of the government is not imminent, the pressures from within and beyond are mounting, necessitating a careful and strategic response from Netanyahu. The coming weeks will be pivotal in determining whether the government can navigate these internal and external challenges or succumb to the growing rifts within its ranks.

Stay tuned as the political drama in Israel unfolds, with significant implications for the region’s stability and future governance.

Biden administration pauses ammunition shipment to Israel: Report

Biden Administration’s Pause on Ammunition Shipment to Israel: A Shift in U.S. Policy Towards the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

By Kasim Abdulkadir:

Amidst the ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine, the Biden administration has made a significant decision to pause a munitions shipment to Israel. This move marks a notable departure from previous U.S. policies and underscores a shift in approach towards the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The decision comes at a critical juncture, amidst escalating violence and growing international concern over the humanitarian crisis in Gaza.

US Senate passes $95bn in aid for Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan

Historically, the United States has been a staunch ally of Israel, providing military aid and support. This unwavering support has been a cornerstone of U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East for decades. However, the recent decision to halt a munitions shipment reflects a reevaluation of this longstanding policy and a recognition of the need for a more nuanced approach to the conflict.

Biden Stands Firm with Israel Amid Iran’s Aggression: A Test of Resilience

One of the key factors driving this shift is the Biden administration’s commitment to promoting human rights and addressing humanitarian concerns. The violence in Gaza has resulted in significant civilian casualties and widespread destruction, leading to international calls for action to alleviate the suffering of Palestinians. By pausing the munitions shipment, the Biden administration is signaling its willingness to reassess its relationship with Israel and prioritize the protection of civilian lives.

How an Israeli Strike on Iran’s Nuclear Program Could Play Out

Additionally, the decision to pause the shipment reflects a broader shift in U.S. foreign policy towards the Middle East. Under the Biden administration, there has been a renewed emphasis on diplomacy and multilateral engagement, as opposed to the unilateral approach favored by the previous administration. This shift is evident in the administration’s efforts to work with international partners to address the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and promote a peaceful resolution.

Furthermore, the pause in the munitions shipment can be seen as a strategic move by the Biden administration to apply pressure on Israel to pursue a ceasefire and engage in meaningful dialogue with Palestinian leaders. By withholding military support, the United States is sending a clear message to Israel that its actions are being closely scrutinized and that there will be consequences for any violations of international law or human rights abuses.

However, the decision to pause the munitions shipment is not without controversy. Critics argue that it undermines Israel’s ability to defend itself against rocket attacks from Hamas and other militant groups in Gaza. They contend that by withholding military aid, the United States is weakening its ally and emboldening its enemies, potentially prolonging the conflict and putting Israeli civilians at risk.

Moreover, some view the Biden administration’s actions as insufficient and are calling for more decisive measures to address the root causes of the conflict. They argue that the United States should exert greater pressure on Israel to end its occupation of Palestinian territories, lift the blockade on Gaza, and address the underlying grievances of the Palestinian people.

US-Israel: Netanyahu Vows to Reject Any US Sanctions on Army Units

Despite these criticisms, the pause in the munitions shipment represents a significant departure from previous U.S. policies towards the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It reflects a growing recognition within the Biden administration of the need for a more balanced and nuanced approach that takes into account the legitimate concerns and aspirations of both Israelis and Palestinians.

Looking ahead, the Biden administration faces the daunting task of navigating the complex dynamics of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict while upholding its commitment to human rights and promoting peace and stability in the region. The decision to pause the munitions shipment is just one step in what promises to be a long and challenging process, but it signals a willingness on the part of the United States to reevaluate its role in the conflict and pursue a more constructive and principled approach to achieving a lasting peace.

Ceasefire on the Horizon: Hope Amidst Conflict

According to the report, Hamas was guaranteed by the U.S. for a full Israeli withdrawal from the Gaza Strip and that Israeli forces will not continue fighting once the hostages are released

In the midst of the devastating conflict between Hamas and Israel, a glimmer of hope emerges as reports suggest that a significant ceasefire in Gaza may be imminent.

The ongoing war, which has resulted in the loss of countless lives and heightened concerns across the international community, now stands on the brink of a potential cessation of hostilities.

According to sources cited by the Israeli publication Haaretz and the Saudi news channel Al-Sharq, mediators have been tirelessly working to broker an agreement between the warring parties. Their efforts seem poised to bear fruit, with indications pointing towards an agreement being reached within a matter of hours.

It is reported that Hamas is on the verge of announcing their acceptance of an Egyptian proposal, marking a pivotal step towards peace. Delegations from both Hamas and Israel have convened in Cairo, Egypt, for crucial discussions aimed at solidifying the terms of the ceasefire.

Furthermore, there are indications that the United States has played a significant role in facilitating the negotiations. Allegedly, promises have been made to Hamas regarding Israel’s withdrawal from Gaza following the release of hostages. Additionally, assurances have been provided to prevent Israeli incursions into Rafah, further bolstering the prospects of a lasting peace.

While some uncertainty lingers regarding the precise timeline of events, it is anticipated that the ceasefire will herald a period of much-needed respite for the conflict-stricken region. With tensions running high and the toll of violence mounting, the prospect of a cessation of hostilities offers a ray of hope amidst the darkness of war.

As the world watches with bated breath, the imminent ceasefire stands as a testament to the power of diplomacy and dialogue in resolving even the most entrenched conflicts. While challenges undoubtedly remain on the path to lasting peace, the prospect of an agreement represents a crucial step forward in alleviating the suffering of innocent civilians caught in the crossfire.

Indeed, as reports indicate, the ceasefire is now only “hours away,” underscoring the urgency and importance of seizing this opportunity to bring an end to the cycle of violence and pave the way for a brighter, more peaceful future in the region.
