HAMAS/ISRAEL/RALLY/REFUGEES: “Former President Donald J. Trump, in remarks that invoked the deadly Hamas attacks on Israel to stoke fears of terrorism at home, said on Monday that he would expand a freeze on refugees that he enacted during his presidency to cover people from the Palestinian territory of Gaza…

He promised again to bar people from certain parts of the world, particularly where Islam is most commonly practiced, while curbing immigration and the overall number of refugees the United States would take in.

‘We aren’t bringing in anyone from Gaza,’ Mr. Trump said at a rally in Clive, Iowa, a suburb of Des Moines.”
