• Defense Secretary Robert Gates is in Israel to discuss Iran and urge the resumption of the peace process. There is apparently some concern that the Arab upheavals have created a sense of urgency for Israel on the peace subject. [Haaretz]

• Earlier, Gates was in Egypt, urging the interim military leaders not to hold elections too soon. [WSJ]

• There are more anti-regime protests in the southern Syrian city of Daraa, where 15 were killed yesterday. [AP/WP]

• The Knesset subcommittee had its hearing into J Street’s pro-Israelness. Group head Jeremy Ben-Ami was there, and it was about as productive as you’d expect. [WP]

• Israel is considering criminal charges against Uri Blau, the Haaretz journalist in the Anat Kamm affair. [Haaretz]

• Reuters pulls some B.S. in describing yesterday’s terrorist attack at a Jerusalem bus station. [Goldblog]

Here’s some video about the attack.
