Daybreak: Ceasefire and Its Discontent

Plus, Chabad blast deliberate, and more in the news

Henry Fonda in Sidney Lumet's 12 Angry Men(Getty)

• After a week of escalation on the Gaza border, a cease-fire may be the offing. Israel is refraining from retaliating against dwindling mortar attacks, and both sides are calling for attacks to end. [Haaretz]

• Except for Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, who opposes people not shooting at each other. [JPost]

• And who will apparently be indicted within 24 hours on charges of fraud, money laundering, and breach of trust. [Haaretz]

• The Thursday explosion at a California Chabad house, previously thought to be a pipe bomb, then a freak accident, is now confirmed as a deliberate attack. More at 10. [NYT]

• Egypt has stopped building an underground wall at the Egypt-Gaza border. [JPost]

• I’m mad as hell, because Sidney Lumet, director extraordinaire, is dead. He was 86. More on him later. [NYT]

re: Lieberman

On the one hand: Cr@p! Not another high-ranking Israeli politician brought down by corruption charges!

On the other hand: nanny-nanny-boo-boo…

“Except for Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, who opposes people not shooting at each other.”
Does this mean that you support shooting people only in one direction?
