The Note:
Last week one of our editorial chipsters joked in a chat channel that Israel had offered to freeze settlement construction "around Ramallah and in Beit Krap" for six months if the U.S. agreed to certain desired intelligence sharing and gave Israel the ol' wink wink to bomb Iran and trigger a global depression.

The News: The details of "pending progress" toward a Middle East peace deal were leaked today. According to press reports, Israel will temporarily freeze construction on settlements in exchange for the U.S. taking a much "harder line" against Iran, including an embargo on oil exports.
