Can you guess what Prime Minister Erdogan is angry about?(Don Emmert/AFP/Getty Images)

• The Arab Spring happened in the past year. But all anyone at the United Nations has wanted to talk about is the Israeli-Palestinian autumn. That will continue today as Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Abbas give their dueling speeches to the General Assembly. [NYT]

• President Abbas still, as of press, plans to go through with submitting a request for full membership to the U.N. Security Council. [Haaretz]

• Turkey’s Prime Minister Erdogan spent much of his speech yesterday chastising Israel. [FP Turtle Bay]

• Republican voters selected Israel as the topic they would most like to see discussed at last night’s primary debate, though when it actually was, it was brief and bungled. [Forward]

Times takeaway from latest Gallup poll: Jews are only down on President Obama in proportion to the rest of Americans, and in that light a startlingly high number remain enthused. [NYT]

• President Obama held a conference call yesterday with 900 (!) rabbis. Clearly it’s sermon time! [Ynet/Vos Iz Neias?]

George One says:

Strange article on Erdogan and Israel. Calling Hamas a rival of Israel instead of calling it a deadly enemy is stupid. Saying relations between Israel and Turkey deteriorated after flotilla incident is also stupid – the relations soured as soon as Turkey’s islamist Fundamentalist AKP came to power, and will remain bad because of Erdogan’s ideology. Furthermore thze megolomaniac Erdogan will end up boring even his followers with his anti-Israel speeches. These days it is apparently the only thing he hzas to say.

Erdogan is trying to draw attention away from his brutal murder of Kurdish people and his threats to Cyprus.

It won’t work.
