• What if Hezbollah appointed Lebanon’s next prime minister, and Israel didn’t panic? (They did, and it didn’t.) [NYT]

• Crowds of Palestinians reacted angrily to the Palestine Papers, blaming their leadership for being willing to give so much away (as well as, in some cases, blaming al Jazeera for trying to discredit their leadership. [WP]

• Iran is “no longer interested” in a fuel-swap deal, it said at talks last weekend. [NYT]

• While insisting that they are unverified, the State Department reported that the Palestine Papers makes peace negotiations more difficult. [Haaretz]

• Despite the official Palestinian Authority line that the Papers are a “pack of lies,” a former negotiator admitted to al Jazeera that they are valid. [Ynet]

• In new Papers, President Abbas admits that asking Israel to absorb one million refugees would be “illogical,” and that the leadership would settle for 100,000 under a final deal. This news is likely also not to be received well. [Haaretz]

I am most interested in finding a peaceful solution to these vexing problem. As a secular Jew, 80 years old, who has always been a Zionist I long for a resolution in Israel.

I am also very much interested in the internet, and would like to ask Tablet readers their thoughts on WikiLeaks.
Not only re the Middle East but as a general source for GOOD or Bad & why.

My thoughts tend to the good, as knowing the bad things we do will lead or force changes for the good.

A FREE press, able to see all sides and opinions is part of the Democracy we love.
