Palestinians in Gaza have acquired anti-aircraft and anti-tank rockets from Libya during its six-month civil war, enlarging but not significantly improving their arsenal, Israeli officials said on Monday.
While the rebellion against Muammar Gadhafi has stirred concern abroad about the fate of Libya’s ageing chemical weapons stockpiles, Israel has no indication Hamas or other Palestinian factions have sought these, the officials said.

Lets slip world’s worst-kept secret:
Western diplomatic efforts aimed at heading off a United Nations resolution on Palestine statehood appear to be making little or no progress. The United States and other allies are trying to find a way to push Palestinians back into direct peace talks with Israel, but those efforts have been rejected.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas complained that “all hell has broken out against us” over the UN effort, but that there was no turning back from the present course.
That course, Iran’s ambassador to Egypt said in a weekend interview, was merely one stage in a broader effort. The push for full membership of Palestine as a UN member state “is a step towards wiping out Israel,” said Ambassador Mojtaba Amani in an interview with Al-Watan al-Arabi. “But the Palestinians must that follow a correct example and complete all the measures to prevent the Zionist Entity from depriving them their rights.”

Israeli jazz artist Itamar Erez and his ensemble have been forced to cancel a weekend show in Turkey due to alleged threats from pro-Islamic protesters.
The ensemble was expected to take the stage as part of the ongoing Akbank Jazz Days.

Erez said the ensemble canceled the show at Akbank Sanat’s suggestion. Read the rest of this entry »
