Sundown: Bibi Agrees to Obama’s ’67 Premise

Plus, Arab League considers Security Council, creepy Breivik surgery, and more

• Prime Minister Netanyahu has reportedly agreed to restart the peace talks on the understanding that the 1967 cease-fire line is the basis for land negotiations which is to say, the position President Obama articulated in May. [AP/Yahoo!]

• On Wednesday, the Arab League is expected to endorse a plan to bring Palestinian statehood to the U.N. Security Council in September, which would amount to a dare for the United States to veto it (a dare which the U.S. will almost certainly accept). [Haaretz]

• Anders Behring Breivik, the alleged Oslo mass-murderer, apparently had gotten plastic surgery to make himself look more Aryan. Dude, you were born Nordic, be happy with it! [Ynet]

• Contributing editor Jeff Goldberg catches a Republican congressman and prominent evangelical Zionist standing next to David HaIvri, a former leader of the incredibly ultra-right-wing Israeli Kach Party. [Goldblog]

• Speaking of whom, Hussein Ibish offers a General Theory of Goldberg. [Ibishblog]

• Given that Aluf Benn is becoming the new editor of Haaretz, it would be nice to get a succinct summation of his political views. Good thing he published a Times op-ed Saturday! Basically: Israel is in a strong position, but it is contingent on U.S. backing, which Bibi needs to work harder for. [NYT]

All the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle are falling into place. You will all see what unfolds over the next 42 days. There are timetables of national aspiration, nuclear enrichment and geo-political co-operation. The timetable that trumps all of them is the divine one. G-d has a plan for the Middle East and Humankind. He will not be denied.

What a love fest festooned with anti-Israel rhetoric. I bet Ibish thinks he’s not an antisemite considering he wrote an article with a “goldberg.”Just as an aside, when are Ibish and Goldberg getting married. Its legal now in NY you know.

Carrie says:

It’s a good thing that Ibish and Goldberg have found some common ground. However, they represent no one so who really cares?
