And in Another Corner of Middle East...

I came across this curious bit of news. The website reporting this is an Iranian news site.

Israel summons envoys from all over the world (12/26/09

"Israel's ambassadors and consuls generals from all over the world have been summoned to attend a conference to be held over global challenges facing Israel.

"The meeting to be attended in Jerusalem Al-Quds on December 27-31 is hosted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, headed by Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, the ministry reported on its website.

""The idea is to facilitate direct dialogue with the country's leaders, mutual updates on major diplomatic issues, and a discussion of action plans to deal with the challenges awaiting Israel in the international arena in the coming year, including the Iranian threat," it said." [The article continues.]

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Israel does indeed have such an announcement. The Ministry says this will be the "first-ever" conference of this nature.

(I will hold on to my call options on a double-long crude oil ETF, just in case.)
