Iran's supreme leader calls for end to "murderous" Israeli regime

DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Wednesday called for a referendum canvassing the Arabs and Jews that live in Israel in order to end the "Zionist state", but said until such a vote could be held, armed resistance was necessary. Khamenei and his predecessor the Ayatollah Rouhollah Khomeini have called repeatedly over the years for an end to the Jewish state, including through a referendum in the region, where Palestinians are in the majority. In his first official comments on Israel since the start of its offensive on the Gaza Strip on July 8, Khamenei reiterated the call. #facebook #United States #India #China #Brazil #France #Middle East #Israel #Italy #United Kingdom

Arab rifts may complicate search for Gaza truce

DOHA/CAIRO (Reuters) - The push for a Gaza ceasefire risks becoming mired in a regional tussle for influence between conservative Arab states and Islamist-friendly governments, with rival powers competing to take credit for a truce, analysts and some officials say. The main protagonists are Arab heavyweight Egypt and the tiny Gulf state of Qatar, on opposite sides of a regional standoff over Hamas, the Islamist group that controls the Gaza Strip, and its ideological patron the Muslim Brotherhood #United States #India #Business #Egypt #Technology #Arabic #Middle East #Argentina #United Kingdom #Qatar #Latin America #Muslim
