• Pre-talk talks are underway (although President Abbas may have already said no): Israel and the Palestinian Authority are negotiating Israel’s release of 25 Palestinians convicted of murdering Israelis in exchange for the beginning of peace negotiations. [Haaretz]

• Mohammed Morsi, the new Muslim Brotherhood president of Egypt, reconvened the parliament, which had been dissolved by the military council and courts. It’s honestly not clear who is ultimately in charge. [NYT]

• Even as Israel seeks to deport illegal African immigrants, it pledged to expedite bringing the remaining 2200 Falash Mura—Ethiopian Jews whose ancestors converted to Christianity—into the land. [JTA]

• A panel appointed by Prime Minister Netanyahu recommends legalizing all West Bank settlements and outposts. “They [the settlers] had an administrative assurance to settle in a place, an assurance that cannot be violated,” it argues. [Haaretz]

• MoveOn.org has apologized for its “offensive and inflammatory” email blast endorsing the opponent of Charles Barron, who says offensive and inflammatory things about Israel. [JTA]

• Libya may have just witnessed a rare triumph for the good guys, with the non-Muslim Brotherhood bloc led by a University of Pittsburgh-educated political scientist winning the parliamentary elections. [NYT]
