At The Daily Beast:

There is very little left of what used to be a lively and densely populated neighborhood near the border between Gaza and Israel. Many of its people ran away on Sunday as Israeli troops advanced.

At The Atlantic:

At a time when many believe the influence of faith is waning in American life, the White House's top second-term legislative priorities -- immigration reform, gun control, climate-change legislation, nuclear non-proliferation -- all depend on an active religious lobby. On immigration progressives and Democratic strategists embrace, to a striking degree, the central role evangelicals will have to play in any successful attempt at reform.
