Secretary of State John Kerry’s attempts at brokering a ceasefire between Israel and Palestine have failed, at least for the moment. Israeli cabinet members rejected Kerry’s proposal on Friday, electing to continue discussions instead about how to improve the proposal in Israel’s favor. More than 800 Palestinians and 35 Israelis have been killed in the past two weeks of fighting, which culminated with a Palestinian "day of rage" Friday following a deadly Israeli attack on a U.N. shelter in Gaza and a 10,000-strong protest in the West Bank on Thursday.
pro-peace protests are sweeping israel right now...and israeli 'jdl' fascists are freaking out!
Counter Current News

Only yesterday we reported on protests against the War on Gaza that had flooded the streets of Jerusalem with thousands of protesters. Jews and Muslims marched side-by-side in support of civilians in Gaza, and yet the vast majority of the corporate, mainstream media completely ignored this story.
Later yesterday, Neo-Fascist Kahanist members of the “Jewish Defense League” (classified as “a right-wing terrorist group” by the FBI in 2001), showed up in Haifa to form a right-wing violent demonstrations against an anti-war protest where Israeli Defense Forces veterans read testimonies of their service in the Israeli army.

An Air Algerie flight carrying 116 people from Burkina Faso to Algeria's capital has crashed in Niger.
"I can confirm that it has crashed," an Algerian aviation official said on Thursday.
The unnamed official declined to provide details as to the location of the plane or what had caused the accident.
The plane disappeared from radar early Thursday nearly an hour after take-off and reported crashed after crossing the airspace of Niger's capital Niamey, according to a report by the Algerian television.
The plane was travelling from Guaga-dugu in Burkina Faso to the Algerian capital city of Algiers, the report said.
