Bread prices a hot topic in Sudan, despite Bashir’s fall

Five months after the trebling of bread prices — and with the fall of Sudanese president Omar al Bashir — citizens and bakery owners in Khartoum insist that the price of the staple remains too high, despite a drop back from a January peak of three pounds per loaf.

The Poway Synagogue Shooting Is Dividing The American Jewish Community (HBO)

Last Saturday, a 19 year-old white supremacist walked into a synagogue and started shooting.

On Monday, Laurie Gilbert-Kaye was laid to rest, as her family, and an entire community, looked on.

In some ways, this attack has inspired members of the Jewish community to come together as they mourn. But it also seems to be causing division, as people argue over who is to blame for the rise in antisemitism.

To liberals, much of the blame lies with President Trump’s wink-wink relationship with the alt-right. But for those on the right, especially in the largely conservative community of Poway, the left’s criticism of Israel is a big part of the problem.

One of the focal points of this debate has been Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, who has recently been accused of antisemitism for her remarks about Israel.

This quickly became a wider political debate outside of the Jewish community – a day after the shooting, members of Congress, including Senator Ted Cruz and Congressman Chip Roy essentially blamed the attack on Omar.

But leftists have accused the right of using the tragedy as a way to silence critics of Israel.

VICE News visited Poway to hear more about how politics are affecting how a community deals with tragedy.

Rep. Omar leaves Capitol, ignores questions as anti-Semitism resolution vote looms

Rep. Ilhan Omar declined to respond to reporters questions as she departed Capitol Hill Tuesday.

The Minnesota freshman congresswoman didn’t create the rift among Democrats over Israel. But her comments about Congress’ support for the Jewish state have forced her party to respond to a divide it would rather not confront in public.

Provocative comments from Omar have thrust the Democrats into an uncomfortable debate over Israel policy a few weeks before a high-profile conference where senior Democrats typically make a show of support for the Jewish state.
