Kayla's Morning Kickstart: Israel, Google and Chick-fil-A


The Trump administration reversed decades of foreign policy and handed a win to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, all in one fell swoop. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced the US no longer considers Israeli settlements in the occupied West bank to be "inconsistent with international law." This defies a 1978 State Department decision and goes against the views traditionally held by US allies.


Google is in the middle of a multistate antitrust probe, but it's not staying on defense. The search giant requested a massive release of documents related to the investigation, which will reveal all of the information supplied to investigators by Google's rivals. Google has previously tried to keep some information private.


Chick-fil-A announced yesterday that will no longer donate to two major charities that have been criticized as anti-LGBTQ. The fast food chain says it won't donate to the Salvation Army or the Fellowship of Christian Athletes in favor of charities that focus on education, homelessness and hunger. Chick-fil-A has been a subject of debate and moral conflict. It sticks to traditional Christian values and is criticized for supporting groups that discriminate against LGBTQ communities. Gay rights organization GLAAD says the news should be greeted with "cautious optimism."
