Can U.S President Joe Biden be Israel’s answer to avoiding ‘a full-scale war’

Published

“President @JoeBiden can pick up the phone, make a couple of calls & this could be over almost immediately ” As violence between Israel and Gaza continues, @andraydomise calls on the President of the United States to take urgent action to avoid ‘a full-scale war’

“This is potentially going to be a third intifada”

Andray Domise says.

Contributing editor of Maclean’s Magazine, Andray Domise, says tensions between Gaza and Israel have been slowly escalating over the course of 20 years, ‘at least’.

The situation in Gaza is at breaking point, following the UN yesterday making a stark warning that the violence may turn into a “full-scale war”.

Domise’s analysis comes after Internal miscommunication early on Friday morning that led to Israeli Defense Forces announcing that its air and ground troops were “attacking in the Gaza Strip.”

However, the IDF later clarified this statement, saying that ground operations against Palestinian militants had started but that they had not entered Gaza.

More than 16,000 reservist military personnel were called up earlier and additional ground troops were deployed to the border.

The UN has warned that the violence in Gaza could escalate into a “full-scale war”

U.S. President Joe Biden has spoken with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and says “Israel has a right to defend itself” amid a barrage of rockets fired from Gaza, according to AFP.

“One of the things that I have seen thus far is that there has not been a significant overreaction,” Biden said during a press briefing.

“Israel has a right to defend itself when you have thousands of rockets flying into your territory,” Biden said during his address.

The United States dispatched a senior diplomat on Wednesday to urge Israelis and Palestinians to calm the worst flare-up in violence between them in years, says Reuters.

As the situation worsens in Gaza, tensions are also spreading throughout several Israeli cities, with Arab and Jewish citizens clashing and rioting on the streets.

Israel’s Defense Minister said “I say explicitly: we will continue to defend and continue to attack until the fire is stopped and we will ensure long-term silence.”

This comes as Palestinians plead with the United Nations to live up to its responsibility and maintain international peace and security.

Antitrust concerns arise for streaming sports venture

Published

on

U.S. lawmakers Jerry Nadler and Joaquin Castro expressed competition concerns regarding the planned sports streaming joint venture involving Walt Disney, Fox, and Warner Bros Discovery.

They addressed these concerns in a letter to the CEOs of the media companies, questioning the impact on access, competition, and choice in the sports streaming market.

Voicing apprehension about potential consumer price hikes and unfair licensing terms for sports leagues and distributors, they requested responses by April 30, urging the companies to also send their replies to the Department of Justice.

Despite the companies’ announcement in February of launching a joint sports streaming service in the autumn to attract younger viewers, the deal faces DOJ scrutiny and an antitrust lawsuit from FuboTV. While Disney and Warner Bros remained silent on the matter, Fox declined to comment.

The joint venture encompasses a broad range of professional and collegiate sports rights, including NFL, NBA, MLB, FIFA World Cup, and college competitions, offering non-exclusive access to sports networks such as ESPN, Fox Sports 1, and TNT via a new streaming app.
