• The Friends of Syria, including the United States, suggested that if President Assad doesn’t actually cease fire, they will resort to military action. This was so inevitable that it’s a wonder they just didn’t do this eight months ago. [WP]

• The disqualification of prominent presidential candidates in Egypt has refocused scrutiny on the current military leadership and its true intentions after this spring’s elections. [NYT]

• A top Hamas leader (who is actually a chief rival to head Khaled Meshaal) insisted that the group will never make permanent peace with Israel. [Forward]

• Lt. Col. Shalom Eisner, an IDF commander currently suspended after a vicious rifle-butting episode, assaulted several other non-threatening protesters, as you can see in a video that has newly surfaced. [Haaretz]

• Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman is reportedly planning a trip to Azerbaijan … . [JPost]

• Vienna is renaming its boulevard Karl Lueger Ring—Lueger was the anti-Semitic mayor who inspired Hitler. Any good you should feel toward Vienna ought to be mitigated by the fact that through 2012 they had a street named after Karl Lueger. [JPost]
