Comment from UTT:
Pope Francis, once again plays the role of peace maker in the middle east by challenging ecumenical cooperation with all religions.
Pope Francis said Saturday that peace in the Middle East will never be achieved through division, violence or the pursuit of private interests, and called for negotiation on issues such as the status of Jerusalem and the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Microsoft has joined a growing chorus of voices calling for increased regulation of facial recognition, with President Bradford L. Smith comparing the technology to pharmaceuticals and cars in a lengthy blog post.

"Facial recognition technology raises issues that go to the heart of fundamental human rights protections like privacy and freedom of expression," writes Smith. "These issues heighten responsibility for tech companies that create these products. In our view, they also call for thoughtful government regulation and for the development of norms around acceptable uses. In a democratic republic, there is no substitute for decision making by our elected representatives regarding the issues that require the balancing of public safety with the essence of our democratic freedoms.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed to take "strong action" against Hamas after more than 170 rockets and mortar shells were fired at southern Israel on Saturday.

At least four Israelis, a 52-year-old man, his wife, and two daughters, ages 14 and 15, were injured when one of the rockets landed on the roof of their home in the southern Israeli city of Sderot. A second rocket hit a synagogue in Sderot, which was empty at the time. The Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted at least 30 of the rockets.
