Tel Aviv, Saturday night.(Uriel Sinai/Getty Images)

• The weeks-long social-justice protests in Israel culminated Saturday with 400,000 warm bodies—300,000 in Tel Aviv alone. [NYT]

• For the first time in two years, Iran seemed to make a real proposal to the West regarding its nuclear program, offering U.N. inspectors five years’ “full supervision” in exchange for lifting sanctions. [NYT]

• As part of the remilitarization of the Sinai and storing more troops there to create security, Egypt began closing the smuggling tunnels between it and Gaza. [WP]

• The Palestinian Authority will go ahead with its U.N. plans, President Abbas confirmed. More at 10. [NYT]

• U.N. nuclear inspectors called for Mideast talks on nonproliferation, a subject sensitive both for Iran, widely believed to be pursuing weapons, and for Israel, wisely assumed to have them and at whom the talks seemed to be aimed. [Haaretz]

• Retired Secretary of Defense Robert Gates believed Prime Minister Netanyahu’s government to be a particularly ungrateful ally. [Bloomberg View]

“Retired Secretary of Defense Robert Gates believed Prime Minister Netanyahu’s government to be a particularly ungrateful ally,”

It is of utmost importance that Israel realize they should not pattern themselves to fit in a UN mold rather the countries of the UN should fit Israel. Let them try to take away Israel property. They will find themselves at the short end of the stick. Shalom, William
