Click refresh to see new updates during the day

Shavua tov, everyone. Obviously, the big news of the day is the landslide victory of Gorilla Boy in the Iranian elections, the allegations of foul play, and the ensuing riots.

Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman issued a statement, saying:

“The problem that Iran presents to the international community doesn’t have a personal nature.”

“The Iranian problem stems from the policy of the regime in Tehran, all the more so in light of Ahmadinejad’s victory and the continuation of his rule.”

Meanwhile, Israeli government spokesman Mark Regev said it was not clear when the Israeli government would make a formal statement on the election results.

In other news:

  • Obama’s special Mideast envoy George Mitchell met with Syrian Dorktator Bashar Assad, and said Syria has a key role to play in forging peace in the region.
  • EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana met with a Hizbullah official, and when asked about the US blacklist of the terrorist group, said “Lists of terrorist groups are not the same in every country.”

Updates (Israel time; most recent at top)

11:20PM: The American Jewish Committee has set up a memorial fund for the family of Stephen T. Johns, the guard who was murdered at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum last Wednesday.
