• President Obama’s security adviser called attention to an ulterior motive/critical impetus for resolving the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians—it’s strengthening a nuclear Iran. [Haaretz]

• Bernard Simon, who served as public relations director for B’nai B’rith International for 20 years and was held hostage when the organization was seized by radical Muslim group in 1977, died this week at 89; his son, David Simon, is the creator of HBO’s The Wire and Treme. [WPost]

• A rocket apparently aimed at Eilat in southern Israel exploded in Jordan; officials are examining possible origins. [Ynet]

• This may sound familiar, but Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu has “officially rejected” Obama’s demand to suspend construction in east Jerusalem, just in time for the latest visit from U.S. envoy George Mitchell. [AP]
