1. Near the end of the conference of Prime Minister David Cameron and President Obama on May 25:
Mr. Cameron described Mr. Obama’s speech last week, in which he discussed the parameters for Israeli-Palestinian negotiations, as “bold and visionary, because I think it did an absolutely vital thing, which was to talk about ‘67 borders with land swaps.”
This is important. Not that it would resonate with the Republicans who are generally gaga over the Conservative Cameron. But it sets down a marker for the September battle to come.
2. The Guardian, today:
David Cameron has stepped down as a patron of the Jewish National Fund (JNF) in a move pro-Palestinian campaigners claim is a result of pressure but which Downing Street insists is part of a general review of the prime minister’s charity connections.
