Senate Republicans voted against withdrawing 158,000 American troops from Iraq.

Speaking at Ze’ev Zhabotinsky memorial complex, dovish Peres announced that Jews could have annexed Israeli biblical lands in Jordan, if not for the decimation in Holocaust. No mainstream Israeli politician calls for annexing Jewish lands occupied by Jordan. Surely Israel can re-take her land from Jordan even with the existing population.

IDF prepares for an all-out war with Syria. The army expects the war to be swift so that Syria won’t be able to launch most of its missiles against Israel. (Maj.-Gen. Eyal Ben-Reuven)
