Militant attack kills 8 Iraqi soldiers, 3 others

"An insurgent attack killed eight Iraqi soldiers and three other people at a house in northern Diyala province on Wednesday, police said, in the latest assault on Iraqi security forces"

"The threat to Iraqi security forces was illustrated on Wednesday morning in the central town of Saadiyah"

"Where insurgents lured troops into a booby-trapped house, killing eight soldiers in co-ordinated blasts that marked the start of Ramadan when violence tends to surge.

The decaying bodies of three civilians killed more than a week ago were also found under the rubble of the building, a doctor said.

Gunmen initially opened fire on an army checkpoint at around 5:00 am (0200 GMT) in Saadiyah, 100 kilometres (62 miles) northeast of Baghdad, before fleeing into a nearby house, as a group of soldiers gave chase.

"The house then collapsed because of a bomb," said army Captain Mohanned Ibrahim. "The gunmen escaped through a back door."

Major Hussam Karim at the provincial security command said the initial house bomb had killed six troops and wounded two others, while a second, delayed, bomb hidden in the garden killed two soldiers and injured two.

"Now the area is cordoned off, and the army has imposed a curfew, and is searching for the armed men," Karim said.

Dr Abdulrazzaq Mustafa at Saadiyah hospital confirmed the toll, and added that the three bodies were of men who were killed at least a week ago, based on the decomposition of their bodies"

Turkey backs petrol sales to Iran despite sanctions

"Turkey will support petrol sales by Turkish companies to Iran, Energy Minister Taner Yildiz told Reuters on Wednesday, despite U.S. sanctions that aim to squeeze the Islamic Republic's fuel imports.

The pledge came ahead of an expected resumption of talks next month between world powers and Tehran on the Iranian nuclear program, which Washington suspects aims to develop atomic weapons.

"If the preference of the private sector is to sell these (petroleum) products to Iran, we will help them. There is no demand for Turkey to halt the trade of these products with Iran," Yildiz said in an interview"

Ehud Barak makes the case against Zionism

"Israeli leaders believe that the mere threat of a nuclear attack by Iran—combined with the chronic menacing of Israel’s cities by the rocket forces of Hamas and Hezbollah -- will progressively undermine the country’s ability to retain its most creative and productive citizens. Ehud Barak, the defense minister, told me that this is his great fear for Israel’s future.

"The real threat to Zionism is the dilution of quality," he said. "Jews know that they can land on their feet in any corner of the world. The real test for us is to make Israel such an attractive place, such a cutting-edge place in human society, education, culture, science, quality of life, that even American Jewish young people want to come here." This vision is threatened by Iran and its proxies, Barak said. "Our young people can consciously decide to go other places," if they dislike living under the threat of nuclear attack. "Our best youngsters could stay out of here by choice."

Netanyahu Digs Deeper Hole at Gaza Flotilla Inquiry

"The sad truth was reflected back to us from the hall in which the Turkel Committee was convened," Caspit wrote on the front page of Ma'ariv. "The Prime Minister of Israel, henceforth the leader, stood up and told the investigative committee that he formed (so as to avert a commission of inquiry) that he, for all intents and purposes, had placed responsibility for the Turkish flotilla on the Defense Minister and then went abroad. The sentence 'In those days Israel had no king, and every man did as he saw fit,' recurs four times in the last five chapters of the Book of Judge"
