The Jewish Power party was critical in bringing Netanyahu back to power late last year.

"Ms. Grossberg's deposition testimony, as manufactured by Fox News, put Ms. Grossberg and Ms. Bartiromo squarely on the frontline of the Dominion/Fox Lawsuit so they could be scapegoated as sacrificial female lambs," the complaint alleges.

Gender non-conformity is not a new phenomenon or trend – in fact, gender diversity can be seen throughout history in countries around the world – from ancient Greece to India to the Americas, according to historians. "There is no historically universal way that societies have sorted biologically different people into personhood categories in the way that we do it now," Susan Stryker, a historian and professor, told ABC News in an interview. In America, gender norms enforce that, for example, a person of the female sex will automatically think of themselves as a girl and live socially as a woman, according to Stryker.

Newer generation fighter jets are giving Russia "increasing dominance" in the skies over the conflict zone in eastern Ukraine, according to a senior Ukrainian official. It is a potentially worrying shift for the United States and its allies because Russia’s inability to achieve total air superiority throughout the course of the war has been key to Ukrainian successes on the battlefield. In a briefing last week with journalists, a Western official downplayed the concern, stating that Russia’s ability to control the skies has been limited by air defense and surface-to-air missiles.
