Daybreak: Bold Palestinian Move

Plus Gingrich goes there, and more in the news

Print Email
Newt Gingrich in February.(Wikipedia)

• The Palestinians made a surprisingly generous land-concession offer in the proximity talks. Israel would rather be talking about a less controversial subject like water rights. [WSJ]

• Hezbollah is mobilizing to prepare for a large Israeli military drill beginning Sunday. [Haaretz]

• France and Germany’s foreign ministers both hit the Mideast this weekend to talk peace. [Ynet]

• Moshe Greenberg died at 81. An Israel Prize winner, he was one of the first Jews who critically taught the Bible in the American academy. [NYT]

• Newt Gingrich’s new book says President Obama’s policies are as “great a threat to America as Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union.” The AJC wants an apology. [American Jewish Committee]

• And while we were out for Shavuot, Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pennsylvania) lost this year’s Democratic primary. So much for the party switch. [JTA]

Garry says:

Is this the function of the American Jewish Committee-to defend a politician and condemn another? What Jewish interest or issue is involved in Newt Gingrich’s book attacking Obama? Oh, I know-Gingrich is too pro Israel, but his cardinal sin is he is a Republican. How dare him attack a member of the holy Democratic Party.

Not so, they denied they such an offer.
