• Iran pledged to make up the funding shortfall caused by U.S. congresspersons’ hold on $100 million in Lebanese military aid. Hey, it’s your money. [LAT]

• The New York Times editorializes in favor of direct talks, specifically prodding Palestinian President Abbas. [NYT]

• The IDF chief-of-staff insisted to Turkel et al that the commandos who boarded the Mavi Marmara and killed nine aboard used “proportionate and correct” force. [Haaretz]

• The U.S. State Department modified its earlier Israeli travel warning after Israel complained of unfair treatment. [AP/Ynet]
