In a recent development, the United States government, under the leadership of President Joe Biden, vetoed a United Nations Security Council resolution. The resolution, which called for an immediate ceasefire and humanitarian assistance in Gaza, was supported by thirteen out of fifteen members of the Security Council. The US, however, argued that the resolution could potentially jeopardize negotiations between Israel and Hamas, and inadvertently empower Hamas. In response, the US proposed its own resolution, which lacked a specific timetable and did not include sanctions if Israel refused to comply. The resolution also did not address the long-term solution to the conflict, leading to doubts about the US’s true intentions and whether it is genuinely interested in peace and reconciliation.

Meanwhile, in the media industry, CBS has taken unprecedented action by seizing reporter Catherine Herridge’s confidential files following her termination. Herridge was investigating the Hunter Biden laptop scandal at the time of her dismissal. The move has sparked concerns about First Amendment rights and criticism from legal scholars and unions representing media professionals. Herridge is currently facing legal issues for not revealing sources and may be held in contempt of court. This incident underscores the ongoing tension between media professionals and corporate interests.

US Vetoes UN Resolution on Gaza, Raises Questions about Motives

The United States’ UN security Council resolution to advance some kind of peace process between Israel and the Palestinians might be much ado about nothing, just a way to buy time and to help Biden transform himself and his administration to make it look like they are interested in peace and reconciliation when they are really acting on behalf of Israel.
