Prof. Alex Stein is congratulated by Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked after being sworn in as an Israeli Supreme Court Justice on August 9, succeeding Justice Udi Shoham. Stein, 60, who was born in the Soviet Union and is a former faculty member at the Hebrew University, has lived in the US for the last 15 years, teaching at Brooklyn College in New York and the Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University. Israel’s Supreme Court comprises 15 judges headed by Chief Justice Esther Hayut.

After weeks of escalating violence between Israel and terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip, a long-term Gaza ceasefire was reportedly being negotiated in Cairo mediated by Egypt and the UN. The principle of the deal was “quiet for quiet,” which means that both sides will adhere to the truce unless the other side violates it. However, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, addressing the PLO Central Council in Ramallah on August 18, urged Palestinians to "keep the ground aflame with popular resistance against Israel."
