“US row shows Jerusalem is cornerstone of peace”

Washington is upping the tone against Israel over last week’s announcement of 1,600 Jewish housing units in East Jerusalem. The Jerusalem Post leads with the story as does left-leaning daily Haaretz. MONDAY, 15th MARCH, 2010.

In today's press review, we look at Israeli coverage of the stand-off with Washington over Joe Biden's "humiliation" last week while visiting the region. Also, the Guardian covers the bizarre events on Saturday in Georgia when a hoax television report sent shockwaves through the nation with many convinced Russia had invaded and killed their President. The French regional elections is also getting coverage in the world's press as well as the bizarre story of a London woman sent to prison for a month for kissing a man in a Dubai restaurant.
