Top Stories October 11, 2010

Daily Star (Lebanon):  Saqr: Hariri 'will not accuse Hizbollah' in father's killing - Hearings on the Hariri assassination are still the main focus in Lebanon.

Haaretz (Israel):  U.S. after Netanyahu settlement freeze proposal: Our position on this is well known - The discussion on a new settlement freeze is causing problems.

Syria Today:  Neutral Ground - This article is from the September issue of the magazine.  Apparently Syria has been playing a role in the Iraqi elections, trying to help the political parties come together and form a parliament.  I hadn't heard of this before.  It's weird to think of Syria as the voice of reason between the Sunni and Shi'ite factions in Iraq.

Turkish Daily News:  Campaign for women politicians in Turkey launched to empty hall - There was a press conference for the Association to Support Women Candidates, and almost no journalists showed up.  I'm not sure if that means anything.
