Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Al Jazeera's story has run amok.

tabloid USAToday | Hamas says it accepts cease-fire proposal; Israel approves Rafah invasion, 6 May

State Department spokesman Matt Miller said the Biden administration was reviewing the Hamas announcement and "will be discussing this response with our partners over the coming hours."
Israeli National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir described the Hamas announcement as a "trick."...
which reveals, yet again, that unwarranted Israeli homicidal mania is the obstacle to "lasting peace" even as IDF bombs, today, Palestinians fleeing Rafah.

Ben-Gvir knows full well that Israel's war cabinet rejected this "Egypt-Qatar" proposal in February, when the General Framework for a Comprehensive Agreement was branded Hamas' "delusional demands."

Media is perfectly split in accordance with geographical location 😄

Western media follow narrative of U.S. Congress and  the White  House and the censored message coming out of Jerusalem.

The Israeli population has been kept in the dark about the destruction in Gaza and the human toll. Banning Al Jazeera has come decades too late for Bibi. Bush dropped a bomb on Al Jazeera HQ in Kabul and Baghdad. 😎

Peddle diplomacy by William Burns on orders from Joe Biden himself made the difference. Israel delegation refused to travel to Cairo on Sunday ... I can imagine Biden put his stamp of approval on the proposal of today. Middle finger to Netanyahu and his right-wing cabal ... Joe just blew-up the war cabinet and ends Netanyahu's reign.

The Arab supported final deal was on the table in Cairo today.
