"Especially when things (in Israel and Gaza) got really close to our families and friends... those were the most challenging moments," added Asi Garbarz, 27, from a kibbutz in northern Israel.

U.S. administration transferring $405 million for border operations
By Mark Felsenthal WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Department of Homeland Security notified Congress on Friday that it will transfer $405 million from other programs to deal with an immigration crisis on the southwestern border, a senior administration official said. Congress left for a five-week recess without wrapping up an emergency spending bill to address the explosion of child migrants in the U.S. Southwest, where 57,000 children traveling alone have tried to enter the United States from Central America this year. Administration officials have warned that without additional funds, operations of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency to address the crisis could run out in mid-August and those of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection in mid-September. The bulk of the transfer - about $270 million - will come from the Federal Emergency Management Agency's disaster relief fund.

U.S. House passes border-security funding bill to speed deportations

Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) walks from his office to the House Chamber during a procedural vote at the CapitolBy David Lawder and Richard Cowan WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives voted on Friday to crack down on Central American migrants, including unaccompanied children, who are flooding to the U.S. border with Mexico, as lawmakers passed a $694 million border security bill.

"We couldn't go home (for recess) and not have a decision," said Representative Kay Granger of Texas, who helped draft the original bill.

The announcement came at an emergency summit in the Guinean capital on Friday to discuss the outbreak, which has killed more than 700 people, with the World Health Organization warning Ebola could cause "catastrophic" loss of life and severe economic disruption if it continued to spread.

US judge orders new talks on Argentina debt dispute

People line up to enter the US Federal Courthouse on August 1, 2014 in New York where they will continue with litigation into the Argentinian debtThe US judge presiding over Argentina's bitter dispute with two hedge funds left the country stranded in default, ordering it to hold new negotiations and calling for an end to "mistrust." Despite fighting tooth-and-nail, Buenos Aires has been unable to find a way around District Judge Thomas Griesa's ruling in favor of the hedge funds, which has blocked it from making payments to other creditors who agreed to take a 70 percent write-down after the country's 2001 economic crisis. It missed a $539 million payment due Wednesday after 11th-hour talks failed to break the impasse with the two American hedge funds, which refuse to accept a write-down. Griesa, who has blocked Argentina from servicing its restructured debt without also repaying the hedge funds the full $1.3 billion it owes them, ordered the litigants to hold new talks.
