Julia Louis-Dreyfus is responding to her former co-star Jerry Seinfeld's recent comments criticizing political correctness in comedy. In recent months, Seinfeld made headlines for saying that TV comedy has suffered due to "the extreme left and PC crap, and people worrying so much about offending other people."

ICJ's Blows Israel Again! Declares Israeli Settlements in Occupied Palestinian Territories 'Illegal'

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) has issued a landmark advisory opinion declaring Israel's settlement policies in the occupied Palestinian territories as a violation of international law. Although non-binding, this ruling is expected to increase international pressure on Israel.

We also explore the historical context of Israel's occupation since the Six-Day War in 1967, the implications of this ruling amidst ongoing operations in Gaza, and reactions from the international community, including the German government.

'Resistance Forces In U.S': Iran's Supreme Leader Lauds Students Protesting For Palestinians

In a dramatic and provocative letter, Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei addressed American university students on Thursday, commending their "defense of the Palestinian people" amidst a surge of pro-Palestinian protests on U.S. campuses. His message, "Do not oppress and do not be oppressed," came at a time of heightened tensions and safety concerns for Jewish students. Khamenei's letter, released during a wave of campus protests demanding a ceasefire in Gaza and divestment from companies with ties to Israel, criticised the U.S. government's support for Israel. He framed the students' activism as part of a larger "Resistance Front" against Zionist oppression, calling Israel's treatment of Palestinians a continuation of "decades of genocide and apartheid." He declared, "As the page of history is turning, you are standing on the right side of it." #Iran #SupremeLeader #AliKhamenei #USProtests #Gaza #Palestine #StudentProtests #CampusActivism #FreePalestine #Resistance #HumanRights #MiddleEastConflict #GlobalSolidarity #Peace #Justice
