• Israel formally filed a complaint with the United Nations over this morning’s rocket attack, arguing that it violated a U.N.-mandated ceasefire and that the Lebanese government should be held responsible. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has already condemned the attack. [Ynet]
• Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said that his country opposes further sanctions against Iran because it has no cause to doubt Iran’s declaration that its nuclear program is purely peaceful. [Haaretz]
• As for the U.S. Congress, Rep. Howard Berman, the California Democrat who chairs the House Foreign Affairs Committee, told American Jewish leaders that he hopes to move forward next month on a bill that would allow U.S. sanctions against companies that help Iran import petroleum. [JTA]
• Vice President Joe Biden hosted national and Washington, D.C.-area Jewish leaders, as well as Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren, at a reception to celebrate Rosh Hashanah. It was a bit early, but it’s the thought that counts. [JTA]
