What are the consequences of Israel Palestine conflict?

The horrific massacres in Gaza are undoubtedly distressing. Amid the prevailing discontent in the Arab world, various perspectives have emerged regarding the ongoing conflict in Gaza, leading to a divided public opinion. Questions have arisen about whether the decision to engage in intense conflict in Gaza was solely made by Hamas or if there were other resisting factions or allied forces involved in making this crucial decision. In such an unstable period, when the entire region was on the brink of a potentially catastrophic situation, this decision seems to have further exacerbated the situation

Who is becoming the next PM amid the political instability in Britain?

Britain is a rare country among developed nations. It has a higher number of inactive individuals compared to the time before the pandemic. One of the main reasons for this is the increase in the number of chronically ill individuals in the country over the long term. In comparison to the coalition of wealthy countries like the OECD, the United Kingdom is lagging behind in terms of labor force participation. Consequently, workers may be able to demand higher wages. But if the policy interest rate increases, the unemployment rate may also increase. According to OECD sources, the tax rate in the United Kingdom is lower compared to other European Union countries, although it is higher than that of the United States. Britain's tax rate is currently 33.5 percent. Although it could rise to 36.8 percent in 2027-28. Among other European countries, France's tax rate is 45.2 percent, Germany's is 39.5 percent.

Two years ago, the European Union (EU) announced a massive global investment plan worth 300 billion euros to counter China's growing influence worldwide. This plan, termed the "Global Gateway Scheme," was unveiled by European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen. The initiative is intended to serve as a genuine alternative to China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), which has seen China invest heavily in various infrastructure projects, such as railways, roads, bridges, and ports, across numerous countries. However, there have been allegations that these countries are falling into a debt trap from which it is extremely difficult to escape.

Is Israel heading towards becoming a rogue state with unchecked support from the US?

The recent violence between Palestinians and Israelis is not solely the responsibility of the Hamas and Netanyahu governments; the stains of blood also lie on the hands of the Western powers. However, it is true that Palestinian militants initiated an attack on Israeli settlements near Gaza on October 7th. Yet, this attack did not originate from any specific location, nor were there prior warnings. Israel claims they did not provoke any aggression. However, the credibility of that claim is debatable. Western governments are well aware of the true plight of the Palestinians in Gaza. However, they have been tacitly supporting Israel's attacks against Palestinians for decades.
