(Worthy News) – In another move towards a new era, Is­rael and Su­dan agreed Friday to nor­mal­ize ties in a U.S.-bro­kered deal.
U.S. President Donald Trump sealed the agreement in a phone call that included Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok.
Sudan’s Transitional Council Head Abdel Fattah al-Burhan also participated in the call, U.S. officials said.
The agreement end­ing decades of hos­til­ity of one of Africa’s largest coun­tries towards Israel came as a boost for Trump, who seeks re-election on November 3.
It makes Khartoum the third Arab government to set aside tensions with Israel in the last two months.

(Worthy News) – The Senate Judiciary Committee voted to advance the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the full Senate Thursday despite a boycott from all 10 Democratic members of the committee.
All 12 Republicans on the committee voted to advance Barrett’s nomination.

Senate Democrats have criticized the confirmation process from the beginning. They have contended that a vote on a Supreme Court nominee should wait until after the presidential election since the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, which caused a vac..
