• President Abbas pledged that the new Palestinian government would not be joint Fatah-Hamas so much as a government of technocrats that followed his lead (but, y’know, with Hamas). [Reuters/JPost]

• Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad suffered a heart attack in Texas, reportedly. He is now in recovery. He was very unlikely to be prime minister in the new government (see above). [Ynet]

• Can President Obama expect to hemorrhage Jewish voters because of his “1967” comments? [The Plum Line]

•Ezri Namvar, the “Persian Bernie Madoff”, was convicted of stealing more than $21 million from investors. [JTA]

•Deli-mongers gathered in Berkeley, California (where else?), to try to devise a concept of the sustainable deli. [JTA]

• Some incredible photographs of Israel by Alex Levac. [Lens]
