Netanyahu Says Israel Prepared to Go Alone
The Jerusalem Prayer Team reports: During an interview broadcast on Israeli television this week, my dear friend Prime Minister Netanyahu made a point of highlighting Israel’s willingness and ability to act alone if it must.

News from the Israel Project
CNN is revealing that Iranian jets last week fired repeatedly on a U.S. Air Force Predator drone conducting routine maritime surveillance in international airspace over the Persian Gulf. The two jets, Iranian Su-25 fighters piloted by members of Iran’s elite revolutionary Guard Corps force, “were never successful in hitting” the drone. Footage of the attack was captured by the Predator’s on-board cameras. The incident, which elicited a formal protest from the United States, casts a spotlight on Iran’s systematic campaign to militarize strategic areas of the Persian Gulf.

Warning signs that the Syrian civil war may spill into Israel sharpened further Monday night as cross-border gunfire struck a routine Israeli army patrol on the Golan Heights. The worrying incident follows another from Saturday, in which three Syrian tanks entered a demilitarized zone (DMZ) between Israel and Syria, marking the first such violation in 40 years.

Philly Activist Group Shreds GOP Voter Registrations
Vision to America reports: The Community Voters Project is a “non-partisan” lefty organization whose mission is to register people to vote, with a particular emphasis on minorities. In the 2008 election, they had offices in 10 states and registered around 300,000 minority voters. So far, so good. This year, however, it seems they aren’t registering everyone who wants to vote. Outside a CVP office in Philadelphia, for example, they shredded and threw away numerous registration forms. A number of these were for people trying to register as a Republican. Read more.
