Daybreak: Bibi Rejects ’67 Precondition

Plus victory of the mock-Nazi stork, and more

Print Email
The parody stork.(The Local)

• Prime Minister Netanyahu rejected a Palestinian proposal to begin direct talks under the precondition that the future state will be based around the 1967 borders. [Haaretz]

• George Will briefly profiles Netanyahu, getting at the heart of the recent disconnect between Israel and America. [WP]

• After Hezbollah claimed it had proof that Israel was involved in the 2005 assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, the U.N. probe is asking for the evidence. [NYT]

• Turkey is establishing its own flotilla probe, answerable to Prime Minister Erdogan. [Haaretz]

• New York Gov. David Paterson announced that the developers behind Park51, the Ground Zero Islamic center, were not interested in his offers to help them relocate. “I certainly respect that,” he said. [AP/Vos Iz Neias?]

• A win for the good guys: A cartoon stork that looks like (and is meant to mock) a similar-looking logo of a clothes company favored by neo-Nazis was found not to be injuring or disparaging the right-wing outfit (get it, outfit?). [NYT]

Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

As usual the Palestinian leadership want their requirements to be pre-agreed and then accept to negotiate – but then what is left to negotiate. Not forgetting that pre-’67 conditions means that the West Bank would have to revert to Jordan and Gaza to Egypt.

Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

I simply wanted to write a quick note to be able to say thanks to you for those great tricks you are writing on this site. My time intensive internet lookup has at the end of the day been honored with professional suggestions to write about with my family. I would assert that most of us readers are undoubtedly blessed to exist in a remarkable site with very many special individuals with interesting tactics. I feel really blessed to have discovered your entire web pages and look forward to some more fabulous moments reading here. Thanks a lot once again for everything.

Interesting point… not sure I agree 100%, but that’s OK. Everyone is allowed their own opinion, right? I’ll keep checking back to see if anyone else agrees or not. Thanks!

I must say, as a lot as I enjoyed reading what you had to say, I couldnt help but lose interest after a while. Its as if you had a excellent grasp to the topic matter, but you forgot to include your readers. Perhaps you should think about this from more than 1 angle. Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so significantly. Its better if you think about what others may have to say instead of just going for a gut reaction to the subject. Think about adjusting your own believed process and giving others who may read this the benefit of the doubt.

I have read a person’s article. It’s extremely helpful. We can certainly benefit a whole lot from them. Fluent producing style in addition to vivid words make people readers enjoy reading. I can share your current opinions through my buddies.

Many reasons why you are falling crazy about this guide. The beliefs were properly defined and incredibly persuasive. After reading your content, I learned lots which is very beneficial to my foreseeable future life.
