Foreign airlines cancel flights and a soldier is MIA, but Israel is as resolute as ever

“We are strong and we will complete this mission” is Yedioth Ahronoth’s headline, quoting Colonel Ghassan Alian, the recently injured head of the Golani infantry brigade. Alian was released from the hospital on Tuesday and immediately returned to the brigade where he spoke to his soldiers.

French Foreign minister Laurent Fabius arrived in Israel Saturday evening and met with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

"I don't think the international community should create any kind of symmetry between a democracy legitimately acting in its own self-defense trying to avoid civilian casualties and a terrorist organization that deliberately targets millions of innocent civilians," Netanyahu told Fabius.

Congressman Gohmert:
A friend will not put another friend in this kind of jeopardy: Cut off aide to PA/Hamas and it is time to bomb Iran's nuclear capability, if we aren't going to stop Iran's nukes, let Israel do it

Ex-Israeli envoy to US Michael Oren:
Kerry wasn’t invited, shouldn’t be coming; cites
“long history” of unsuccessful diplomacy in the region

UN’s Ban condemns rocket fire, calls for return to talks; Netanyahu says Israel will continue to defend itself; army names Oron Shaul as missing soldier presumed killed in Gaza fighting; IDF death toll rises to 27; over 600 Gazans said killed so far

US, UAE to send $87 million in aid to Gaza Strip

The US is sending $47 million in humanitarian aid to the besieged Gaza Strip to help tens of thousands of Palestinians there who have been forced from their homes since war broke out two weeks ago.

A State Department breakdown of the aid said nearly a third of the money - $15 million - will go to the United Nations' refugee mission in Gaza.

Since the Israeli operation began on July 8, huge numbers of Gazans have fled their homes, with more than 100,000 people taking shelter in 67 schools run by UNRWA, the UN agency for Palestinian refugees, a spokesman said.

IDF campaign shows rockets in schools and hospitals

The IDF Spokesperson's Unit has ramped up its efforts to rebuff the criticism of Israel and present Hamas as a group which uses innocent civilians as human shields. On Monday afternoon the IDF publishes visuals displaying rocket launchers placed at a number of civilian sites, like playgrounds, schools, and hospitals.

Joe Biden:
I Looked Putin In The Eyes And Told Him
He Didn’t Have A Soul

Does Russian President Vladimir Putin have a soul? Apparently not, according to Vice President Joe Biden.

In a wide-ranging interview with The New Yorker’s Evan Osnos, the vice president recalled the time he looked Putin in the eyes and told him he didn’t have a soul while he was visiting the former Russian prime minister at the Kremlin in 2011.

“I had an interpreter, and when he was showing me his office I said, ‘It’s amazing what capitalism will do, won’t it? A magnificent office!’ And he laughed,” Biden explained to The New Yorker.

"The men who have done the most for God in this world have been early on their knees. He who fritters away the early morning, its opportunity and freshness, in other pursuits than seeking God will make poor headway seeking Him the rest of the day. If God is not first in our thoughts and efforts in the morning, He will be in the last place the remainder of the day." - E. M. Bounds
