Pressler was one of the most influential, if lesser-known, evangelical figures of the last half-century, having co-led a movement in the Southern Baptist Convention that pushed the nation’s second-largest faith group to adopt literal interpretations of the Bible, strongly condemn homosexuality and more closely align with the Republican Party.

His death came barely six months after he confidentially settled a high-profile lawsuit with a former member of his youth group who accused him of decades of rape. As part of the suit, at least six other men came forward alleging that they were abused or solicited for sex by Pressler in a string of incidents dating from 1978 to 2016. Pressler denied the allegations and was never criminally charged.

For months, Tsav 9 activists have organized to block convoys, harass aid workers and damage aid trucks as well as goods meant to alleviate pervasive hunger and suffering in Gaza. The group’s name means Order 9 in Hebrew, a reference to the military’s order calling up reservists.

The announcement by the State Department of the financial restrictions on Tsav 9 cites a May 13 incident in which activists looted and then set fire to two trucks in the West Bank carrying aid bound for Gaza.

Both picks were bound to be inflammatory:

Perry's phone was seized by the FBI as part of its Jan. 6 probe, while Jackson has faced allegations of drinking on duty and harassing staff when he was the White House physician.

Rep. Chrissy Houlahan (D-Pa.), a Democratic member of the panel, sent Johnson a letter earlier this week urging him to reverse the appointments.

Ordinary Gazans are bearing the brunt of the 8-month Israeli military onslaught on the territory and many blame the Palestinian armed faction for starting the war.

More Gazans have even been willing to speak out against Hamas, risking retribution.

In interviews with nearly a dozen Gaza residents in recent months, a number of them said they held Hamas responsible for starting the war and helping to bring death and destruction upon them, even as they blame Israel first and foremost.

One Gazan, Raed al-Kelani, 47, said Hamas always acts in its own interests.

“It started Oct. 7, and it wants to end it on its own terms,” said Mr. al-Kelani, who worked as a civil servant for the former Palestinian Authority government in Gaza, which was run by a rival faction to Hamas before Hamas seized control of the territory in 2007.

“But time is ticking with no potential hope of ending this,” he added. Mr. al-Kelani now makes meals and distributes food aid in shelters for displaced Gazans. “Hamas is still seeking its slice of power,” he said. “Hamas does not know how to get down from the tree it climbed.”

"It is clear that the use of parks and natural settings for physical activities could be a potentially powerful tool for promoting two important health behaviors simultaneously," Maddock said. "This could be especially important given that the majority of Americans do not get enough exercise or spend enough time outdoors."

I use Aurora Store exclusively. I've disabled Play store as much as possible on my phone. It works great and has a better search than Play Store. You can filter by free, ads, see embedded trackers, etc. For me, it is a much better option.

President Joe Biden’s order, issued a week ago, largely suspends noncitizens’ entry into the country whenever the number of migrants entering the country illegally is high.

“President Biden’s recent executive order flies in the face of our entire asylum system and has no cognizable basis to support it,” said Jennifer Babaie, director of advocacy and legal services for El Paso-based Las Americas Immigrant Advocacy Center, one of the groups behind the lawsuit. “By doing this, the president has managed to further penalize vulnerable individuals and families seeking protection and violated our laws.”

The lawsuit alleges that the exception criteria to Biden’s proclamation is too narrow. People exempted from the policy include permanent U.S. residents, unaccompanied children, trafficking victims and migrants who secure an appointment with U.S. officials. Migrant rights advocates have criticized the phone app used to make those appointments saying it’s already overwhelmed.

No, quite the opposite. Gantz is considered a moderating force in the coalition who probably prevented a lot of Palestinian deaths due to his measured approach. His main point of pressure was that Bibi has absolutely no plan for transitioning to a post-war Gaza. Someone will have to be in charge of governance and reconstruction, and that plan has to begin now. Bibi has avoided the question because there is really no good option. It's politically savvy to let the situation devolve further into crisis.

Gantz leaving weakens Netanyahu but also strengthens the far right ministers. In the short run, this is probably a bad thing, but could be good if it triggers new elections and ends Bibi's career.

This is a pretty good commentary I found that explains what this probably means. I don't agree with all of it, but it's a solid read.

Well shucks, all they did was drive out their most active content makers and cut themselves off from hundreds of thousands of dollars in free moderation labor. Who could possibly have seen this coming?
