Quick Glance: Israel rejects establishment of Palestinian state
  • The Israeli parliament voted Thursday to oppose a Palestinian state as an 'existential threat,' following Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's statement to lawmakers that the army had Hamas 'under control.'

  • The vote, which garnered strong criticism from the Palestinian leadership and the international community, is mainly symbolic, yet it sets a precedent before Netanyahu's planned address to the US Congress next Wednesday.

  • The resolution passed by Israeli lawmakers in the early hours emphasized that a Palestinian state on land occupied by the Israeli army would 'perpetuate the Israel-Palestinian conflict and destabilize the region.'

  • France expressed 'consternation,' noting that the text was 'in contradiction' with multiple UN Security Council resolutions.

Quick Glance: Senator Bob Menendez Convicted, Schumer Calls for Resignation
  • Democratic Senator Bob Menendez was convicted of corruption after accepting bribes from three New Jersey businessmen and acting as a foreign agent for the Egyptian government.

  • Menendez and two businessmen were found guilty of accepting bribes for personal gain. The verdict came after a nine-week trial that proved the senator abused his position to protect allies and enrich himself.

  • The guilty verdict could force Menendez to resign from his Senate seat, as most Democratic senators have already called for his resignation. He faces the possibility of a lengthy prison sentence, and his political future seems uncertain.

  • The senator will be sentenced on October 29 and could receive up to 20 years in prison for the most serious charges. Evidence showed that Menendez had abused his Senate position to support Egypt and benefit personally, leading to a damning verdict.
