Daybreak: West Demands More Inspections
Plus get to know the security octet, and more in the news
• THE SIX COUNTRIES NEGOTIATING WITH IRAN offered the real possibility of new talks while demanding inspectors’ access to more nuclear sites, including the one at Parchin. [NYT]
• NEW SATELLITE IMAGES, ISRAEL ARGUES, of clean-up at an Iranian facility, further suggest the program is not peaceful. [AP/Haaretz]
• IS AN IRAN ATTACK UP TO PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU? Sort of. Eli Lake reports on the security cabinet Bibi is bound, at least, to consult. [The Daily Beast]
• WORRY, NOT PANIC, defines the bulk of the Israeli population in the midst of war talk. [NYT]
• AN ISRAELI SOLDIER WAS STABBED AND KILLED ONE. He was in the West Bank arresting a man, released as part of the Gilad Shalit swap, suspected of helping fund terrorism; he was stabbed in the neck while performing the arrest, and opened fire. [NYT]
• The Forward PROFILES ALI ABUNIMAH, calling him “Rock Star of the Boycott Israel Movement.” The news is here is less what’s in the profile than the Forward’s decision to profile him. [Forward]

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?

We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking.

All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.
I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
