The Day In Israel: Wed May 20th, 2009

Click refresh to see new updates during the day

According to an American official, the US is expecting Israel to make concrete concessions to the palestinians before US President Barack Obama’s visit to Cairo on June 4, such as easing restrictions on imports and exports of goods to Gaza, and easing restrictions on movement in the West Bank.

No word yet on whether or not the US is expecting some concessions from the palestinians, such as refraining from firing rockets at our civilians.

Updates (Israel time; most recent at top)

10:12PM: US defense officials have decided to continue funding Israel’s Arrow anti-ballistic missile system.

8:13PM: Quote of the day:

“This idea of two states for two peoples is a stupid and childish solution to a very complex problem”

Ron Dermer, senior aide to Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu

6:38PM: The Middle East peace plan of US President Barack Obama reportedly includes an independent, democratic and contiguous palestinian state without its own army and which would be forbidden from making military agreements with other states, in order to provide for Israel’s security.

6:35PM: Here’s more on Israel’s war against…swine flu.

2:43PM: Iranian President Mahmoud “Gorilla Boy” Ahmadinejad has announced that Iran successfully test-fired a new advanced missile with a range of about 1,200 miles, far enough to strike Israel and southeastern Europe as well as US bases in the Gulf.

He reportedly added “Bwa-ha-ha-haaaa.”

12:15PM: CAMERA is claiming credit for the AP caption correction I blogged about yesterday.

While I applaud their initiative in approaching AP about the caption, I think they are being too generous regarding the corrected caption.

In fact, anything short of  “A Palestinian protester lies down after being overcome by tear gas fired by Israeli troops  holds a key symbolizing the keys to houses left by Palestinians in 1948 and poses for a contrived photograph” is a dishonest caption.

 

5:52AM: US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Al Jizz.

Yes, we are seeing the Hillary Clinto who hugged and kissed Suha Arafat, as opposed to the Hillary Clinton we saw during the Democratic primaries.
