The Day In Israel: Fri June 12th, 2009

Click refresh to see new updates during the day

UN Secretary-General “Banky” Moon said he was considering fining Israel $11 million for damage it did to UN facilities during Operation Cast Lead.

Bring it on, homeboy. Israel should counter-sue for a great amount for colluding with the terrorists.

Updates (Israel time; most recent at top)

5:48PM: Noam Shalit, father of kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Shalit, has given Jimmy Carter a letter for his son since Carter ” is the only American in contact with Hamas.”

1:30PM: Obama take note: According to a new poll, most Israelis back settlement construction.

Nearly six of every 10 Israelis think Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should resist U.S. demands to completely freeze construction in Jewish West Bank settlements, according to a new poll released Friday.

Fifty-six percent of those surveyed said Netanyahu should not consent to the American demand to halt all settlement construction, as opposed to 37 percent who said he should. Fifty percent said failure to comply would not provoke a crisis with the U.S., while 32 percent said they thought the settlement freeze was a make or break issue for Washington.

Maagar Mohot also found in a separate poll that two-thirds of Israelis have little appetite for dismantling West Bank settlements. Thirty-six percent oppose any evacuation as part of a final peace deal and 30 percent said only a small number should be dismantled.

Both surveys polled 503 people and had a margin of error of 4.5 percentage points.

12:35PM: Curious picture and caption found on the JPost site (hat tip: Melvyn).

Those vandals seem pretty handy with the paint.

Alternatively, the JPost are still not very handy with the technical aspects of their site.

10:05AM: Iranians have begun voting in the presidential election. Who will be victorious? The guy who wants to nuke Israel? Or the other guy who wants to nuke Israel?

9:15AM: Once again, it looks like the bird has pooped something out.
