• Israeli opposition leader Tzipi Livni aligns herself with the pro-democracy crowd (with, y’know, caveats). [WP]

• Speaking of! Jacob Heilbrunn has an informative explication of the neoconservative split between the unabashedly pro-democracy wing (which is winning out) and the old-school, realist one. [Foreign Policy]

• Iran wants you to sell it your uranium. Especially if you are Zimbabwe. [AP/Haaretz]

• EasyJet, the British budget airline, apologized for loading bacon-and-ham sandwiches onto a flight out of Ben Gurion. Do people even eat bacon-and-ham sandwiches? [CNN]

• Rabbis and other Jews are getting active in the pro-union protests in Madison. Unrelatedly: How ‘bout that buzzer-beater last night? On, Wisconsin! [JTA]

• Meet the Israeli Daily Show. [Splitsider]

Yaakov Hillel says:

Yes Mrs shpitzer is democratic to anybody who follows what she say’s and mmaybe believes and she is anti democratic to any body who disagrees with what she has to say in short, she is a democratic tyrant and a danger to democracy.
Israel knows that she is willing to sell Israel short. She is in cohorts with Abbas who keeps praises the Palesetinian shaheeds and calls streets after them. He says one thing to the foreign press and another to his people like his AIDS ridden homosexual predecessor.
