by Mike Fegelman
  • Where’s the outrage? Hamas closes its only civilian border crossing with Israel following the assassination of one of its senior commanders. Coverage at the National Post courtesy of the Washington Post. (The Post put it on the front page today too.)
  • CTV News, IPolitics, and the Toronto Star picked up on an AP report on how Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, has deep business and personal ties to Israel that could raise questions about his ability to serve as an honest broker as he oversees the White House’s Mideast peace efforts.
  • Metro News reported on how thousands of Hamas supporters waving the movement’s green flag marched through the streets of Gaza Saturday for the funeral of a militant leader and high-profile former prisoner who was mysteriously shot dead, as the group’s leaders pledged retribution.
  • The Toronto Star and Chronicle Herald both report on how Iran on Sunday sanctioned what it described as 15 American companies, alleging they support terrorism, repression and Israel’s occupation of land Palestinians want for a future state, likely in retaliation for sanctions earlier announced by the U.S.
