• Citing “violations of international humanitarian law,” Norway has divested from the Israeli company that supplied surveillance materials for a separation wall in the West Bank. [JPost]
• The Israeli government “hinted” that it may retroactively legalize construction in two settlements that would otherwise need to be destroyed. [Haaretz]
• The New York Times’ Ethan Bronner makes the wise point that, with the skepticism of everyone invested in peace between Israelis and Palestinians, “low expectations all around may actually make it easier to achieve results.” [NYT]
• After a visit to Moscow by Natan Sharansky, the Jewish Agency, which he chairs, has partnered with a Russian philanthropy giant to expand Jewish education programs in the former Soviet Union. [JPost]
