• This morning, the influential speaker of Iran’s parliament claimed that Iran learned several days ago that the United States and Israel were planning terrorist acts in the country. [Haaretz]
• Three Israelis thought to be present in Haiti have not been accounted for since the earthquake that rocked Port-au-Prince yesterday, likely killing thousands. (For a list of humanitarian agencies with a presence there, including several Jewish ones, see here.) [Arutz Sheva]
• An editorial is a special “appreciation” of Miep Gies, who helped hide Anne Frank and others, and later recovered Frank’s diary. [NYT]
• Nearly three-quarters of Israelis support peace negotiations with the Palestinians, while slightly more than three-quarters believe their government is working “well or even better.” [JPost]
