• Despite a plan to delay it by one month and threats from his right wing, Prime Minister Netanyahu heeded his defense minister’s insistence and evacuated the recently-occupied house in Hebron near the Cave of the Patriarchs. [Haaretz]

• Bibi also moved to legalize three illegal West Bank outposts, in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision that Migron must be razed. [Ynet]

• In a speech, Bibi warned that current sanctions against Iran are great, but not enough: the Islamic Republic “has yet to move backward, even a millimeter,” he said. [Haaretz]

• Some Muslim Brotherhood leaders are in Washington this week to convince leaders that they’re really not so bad and there’s no need to freak out over the sudden decision to run a presidential candidate. [WP]

• Amazing profile of the head of Iran’s Quds Force, an elite, almost paramilitary group with global reach. [WSJ]
