The Jewish Agency for Israel is launching a campaign to attract American Jewish pensioners as immigrants. The project, reported Wednesday by Ma’ariv, would target well-off American Jews aged 65 and over in hopes that they will retire to Israel, bringing their savings — and possibly their children and grandchildren — with them.

Iran called for international action against Israel’s assumed nuclear arsenal. Tehran’s Foreign Ministry said Wednesday that Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s apparent admission of nuclear capabilities in a television interview earlier this week warranted foreign intervention.
