• The Arab Spring happened in the past year. But all anyone at the United Nations has wanted to talk about is the Israeli-Palestinian autumn. That will continue today as Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Abbas give their dueling speeches to the General Assembly. [NYT]

• President Abbas still, as of press, plans to go through with submitting a request for full membership to the U.N. Security Council. [Haaretz]

• Turkey’s Prime Minister Erdogan spent much of his speech yesterday chastising Israel. [FP Turtle Bay]

• Republican voters selected Israel as the topic they would most like to see discussed at last night’s primary debate, though when it actually was, it was brief and bungled. [Forward]

Times takeaway from latest Gallup poll: Jews are only down on President Obama in proportion to the rest of Americans, and in that light a startlingly high number remain enthused. [NYT]

• President Obama held a conference call yesterday with 900 (!) rabbis. Clearly it’s sermon time! [Ynet/Vos Iz Neias?]
