Attempt on Barak's life

Israel was able to prevent an assassination attempt on Defense
Minister Ehud Barak, during his visit to Singapore this week. The
Mossad -- who collaborated with local authorities -- were able to stop
the assassins, who planned on targeting Barak during his visit to the
Singapore Air Show in his hotel. The terror cell apparently had very
specific information about Barak's itinerary and planned to have him
under surveillance during his stay in Singapore. Prior to Barak's
visit, the Israeli intelligence agency contacted the authorities in
Singapore and gave them highly classified information suggesting a
cell comprising of Iranian and Hezbollah operatives were planning to
assassinate the Israeli defense minister. A covert operation based on
the information resulted in the arrest of three suspects.

Government divided on Syria

What constitutes a proper Israeli response to the events in Syria -
where around 6,000 civilians have been killed - in the revolt against
President Bashar Assad? Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman believes it
is time for Israel to condemn the massacres while Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu prefers to remain ambiguous. The ministry issued a
recommendation to the effect that Israel has a moral obligation to
condemn the mass killings and demand Assad's ouster. The diplomats say
that if the Arab League, the United States and the European Union are
taking a firm position against Damascus, Israel can't espouse an
unclear policy and be the last country in the West to take a stance.

10 children killed

Ten Palestinian schoolchildren were killed on Thursday and 42 injured
as a school bus collided with a truck northeast of Jerusalem. At least
eight are said to be in serious condition. Seven bodies have been
taken to the Palestinian Medical Clinic and three are at the Hadassah
hospital in Jerusalem. The bus was on its way to an amusement park in
Ramallah with students from Nour al-Huda primary school in the East
Jerusalem neighborhood of Anata. President Abbas announced three days
of mourning for victims of the crash and ordered Palestinian flags to
fly at half-mast.

Italian jets for Israel

The Defense Ministry announced that it has selected Italy's Alenia
Aermacchi M-346 Master as the next advanced combat trainer for the
Israel Air Force. The decision is expected to lead to a crisis with
South Korea which had pushed hard to win the $1 billion deal. Seoul
has claimed that Israel had preferred Italy throughout the competition
and that the tender was not conducted according to "international
standards." According to the decision, the IAF will receive 30 M346s
starting in 2014 which will replace its legendary fleet of Skyhawks.
In return, Italy will commit to purchase just over $1 billion of
military platforms from Israeli defense companies.

Guns N' Roses in Israel

American hard-rock legends Guns N' Roses will arrive in Israel for a
one-off performance this summer. Rumors of an Israeli stop of a GNR
tour have been circulating nearly annually since the band's last
Israel show in 1993. It will be quite a different bunch taking the
stage than that who rocked Hayakon Park almost 20 years ago, with only
front man Axl Rose and keyboardist Dizzy Reed remaining. Most notably,
the band is missing perhaps its biggest star, other than Rose, in
guitarist Saul Hudson or Slash.
