The Day In Israel: Sat May 30th, 2009

Click refresh to see new updates during the day

I’m back, after being out of action for the Shavuot-Sabbath doubleheader.

Here’s the main news from today:

  • PA President Mahmoud Abbas met Egyptian President Hozni Mubarak and indicated he wants to renew the dialogue between the PA and Israel
  • With the Israeli government set to discuss three bills dealing with Israeli Arab loyalty to the state, the Higher Arab Monitoring warned against approving a bill outlawing the honoring of the Nakba, saying it will be tantamount to a declaration of war. Yep, that should assuage our fears of their disloyalty.
  • Lebanon charged four more people with collaborating with Israel, raising the number of suspected spies who have been charged in the last few months to 23.
  • Hizbullah instructed its terrorists to raise the alert to “emergency level” ahead of the IDF Home Front Command’s week-long ‘Turning Point 3’ national drill expected to begin in Israel tomorrow. The drill will include all of the emergency organizations, all of the government ministries as well as the entire civilian population. Which I assume means the terrorists will resume hiding behind them.

I guess I should first ask her if she intends on being at Nilin anytime soon?

10:33PM: Israel’s fourth president, Ephraim Katzir, died today at the age of 93. Which is amazingly only 7 years older than Israel’s current President Shimon Peres.

10:05PM: George Galloway being George Galloway.

This is typical fare for the anti-Israeli crowd. The truth is a rather inconvenient thing for them.
