Israeli Officials ‘Dismayed' by Prince William's ‘Naïve' Gaza Statement
Kin Cheung / Getty ImagesPrince William's dramatic statement calling for an end to the war in Gaza on Tuesday "dismayed" Israeli officials who considered it to be "naïve," it was reported Wednesday.

However, the officials were restrained in their criticism of William, as they did not want to "enter into a row with the future king," a report in the Telegraph said, without citing sources.

Meanwhile, some political commentators suggested that William may have made the comments at the urging of the foreign secretary, David Cameron.

Michael Ian Black: West Virginia Republicans Want to Throw Librarians in Jail
Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily BeastWe've got to do something about these sexy, sexy libraries. Instead of public spaces that house books and other collections that are free of charge to borrow, today's libraries are little more than recruiting stations for drag queens and aggrieved minorities trying to turn our children into godless monsters hellbent on transforming our once-great nation into Queer Valhalla.

Dewey Decimal would hang his head in shame. Something has to be done! Thank white Jesus that somebody is finally taking a stand.

Last week, the West Virginia House overwhelmingly passed Bill 4653, which would "remove bona fide schools, public libraries, and museums from the list of exemptions from criminal liability relating to distribution and display to a minor of obscene material." In essence, any teacher, librarian, or museum curator is now potentially on the hook for $25,000 and up to five years in jail if convicted.

Donald Trump's Cash Crunch Just Got Much, Much Worse
Photo Illustration by Thomas Levinson/The Daily Beast/GettyAs Donald Trump's legal troubles consume more and more of his time, they're also consuming more of his donors' money—and there's a huge hole in the bucket.

On Tuesday, Trump's "Save America" leadership political action committee reported raising just $8,508 from donors in the entire month of January, while spending about $3.9 million, according to a new filing with the Federal Election Commission.

Nearly $3 million of that overall spending total was used for one purpose: to pay lawyers.

Prince William Will Continue to ‘Speak Out' After Gaza Statement: Royal Source
Photo Illustration by Luis G. Rendon/The Daily Beast/GettyInterventions on global issues close to Prince William's heart, like his dramatic statement calling for an end to the war in Gaza Tuesday, are likely to be an ongoing feature of his tenure as Prince of Wales, with sources saying the prince will continue to speak out on issues that he believes matter.

In a clear suggestion that Tuesday's statement—which called for an "end to fighting," even though Israel remains implacably opposed to calls for a ceasefire—was a template for future interventions rather than a one-off, a palace source told The Daily Beast that William would likely make further comments on issues of global importance, saying, "When he feels the need to say something, he will."

Another royal source said that William would have been less likely to make such an unambiguous statement if he were king, but said that his father King Charles had created a model whereby the heir to the throne could "speak out" on issues that mattered to them.

Kari Lake Is Empty-Handed When Pressed About Arizona Election Claims
Caitlin O'Hara/ReutersWhen it comes to Kari Lake's debunked theory of widespread election fraud in her 2022 Arizona gubernatorial race, she's not even sure "who exactly stole the election," she admitted Monday.

During an interview on Arizona's KTAR News 92.3 FM, Lake's false claims were challenged by the station's legal analyst, Barry Markson.

"My question is, as you've been saying for three years, or for two years: can you tell us who stole the election from you and how they did it, and if you can't or you don't want to, that's okay, but I want to make sure the question is there in front of you," Markso said.

More Than 50 Countries Argue Before World Court Against Israeli Occupation of Palestine
Arguments are underway at the International Court of Justice, where more than 50 countries are asking the World Court to issue a nonbinding legal opinion against Israel's occupation of the West Bank, Jerusalem and Gaza since 1967. The request is separate from South Africa's genocide case against Israel at the ICJ. "Israel has been instrumentalizing the rules of international humanitarian law … to further its settler-colonial project in Palestine," says Ahmed Abofoul of the Palestinian human rights organization Al-Haq, which submitted an advisory opinion on the case. "I have no doubt that the court will decide that Israel's occupation is illegal," he says. We also discuss what comes after the ruling and Israeli society's reaction to the war.

"Borders on Pathological": Trump Must Pay $450 Million for Lying to Lenders in Fraud Case
The legal setbacks facing leading Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump are piling up. He now has 30 days to pay $450 million in fines and penalties from a civil fraud case brought by New York Attorney General Letitia James. His two eldest sons face a two-year ban and were each ordered to pay $4 million. Trump says he plans to appeal the ruling, which he described as a "complete and total sham." But the appeal is unlikely to succeed, says Russ Buettner, a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist whose reporting for The New York Times led to the state's case. He lays out how records showed an "overwhelming pattern" of Trump's businesses "lying to their lenders." Buettner, who describes Trump as cash-poor, says the penalties will result in "a blow to his personal finances and his business finances that he really can't handle at this point."
