Quick Glance: Republican Leaders Caution Against Racist, Sexist Attacks on Harris
  • Republican leaders are warning party members against using overtly racist and sexist attacks against Vice President Kamala Harris, as they and former President Donald Trump’s campaign scramble to adjust to the reality of a new Democratic rival less than four months before Election Day.

  • At a closed-door meeting of House Republicans, National Republican Congressional Committee chairman Richard Hudson urged lawmakers to criticize Harris solely for her role in the Biden-Harris administration policies.

  • The warnings point to the new risks for Republicans in running against a Democrat who would become the first woman, first Black woman, and first person of South Asian descent to win the White House.

  • Trump and allies have begun to refer to Harris as a 'DEI' hire - a nod to diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives.

Quick Glance: New unity agreement between Palestinian rivals Hamas and Fatah
  • After three days of talks in China, Palestinian factions have signed an agreement aimed at ensuring control over Gaza post-war.

  • The deal lays the groundwork for an 'interim national reconciliation government' to govern post-war Gaza, said Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi.

  • Mustapha Barghouti, the secretary-general of the Palestinian National Initiative, emphasized the importance of the movement towards a unity government as it 'blocks Israeli efforts to create some sort of collaborative structure against Palestinian interests'.

  • The reconciliation between Hamas and Fatah signifies a crucial turning point in internal Palestinian relations, as the two main parties have been bitter rivals since the 2006 conflict where Hamas took control of Gaza.

ICJ Rules Israel’s Occupation of West Bank, Jerusalem, Gaza Is Illegal: ...
Quick Glance: Top U.N. Court Rules Israel's Occupation of West Bank, East Jerusalem Unlawful
  • The top United Nations court in the Hague declared Israel's 57-year occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem 'unlawful' and called on Israel to cease its presence in the occupied territories, including dismantling Israel settlements there and paying reparations.

  • The advisory decision by the International Court of Justice, although not legally binding, is expected to have limited practical implications in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, home to an estimated 700,000 Israelis.

  • This landmark decision by the ICJ marks a significant blow to Israel's international standing, as it was the first time the court had expressed an opinion on the legality of Israel's occupation.

  • Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rejected the ruling, denouncing its rationale as 'lies.' Netanyahu emphasized that 'the Jewish people are not conquerors in their own land.'
