• Israel blocked 200 protesters from flying into Ben Gurion International as part of an alternative, “air flotilla.” [Haaretz]

• U.S. ambassador Robert Ford visited the protesting stronghold of Hama in apparent solidarity. [NYT]

• Then, he quickly left. [AP/WP]

• Meanwhile, it’s Friday, so naturally tens of thousands are protesting the Syrian regime; the regime in turn blames the protests on Israel America. [AP/Seattle P-I]

• Remember the Philistines? Goliath and all of them? Archaeologists are learning lots about them in southern Israel. [AP/WP]

• Lebanon is trying to measure the natural gas in Israel’s economic zone, to much Israeli consternation. [Haaretz]

Syria blames Israel and America. Most Arab regimes must really want Israel to survive for ever – who else would they be able to blame for everything that goes wrong in their countries as a result of their corrupt mis-government if, God forbid, Israel were to disappear.
