• A profile of Bahrain’s ambassador to the United States, who is a woman and a Jew. [WP]

• Protesters tried to halt Israel’s Habima theater company’s production of The Merchant of Venice at the reconstructed Globe in London. Naturally, the show went on. [Ynet]

• Donald Duck said what in German? [Der Spiegel h/t The Awl]

• The only Israeli running for Congress faces his Republican primary in Texas today—and Eric Cantor has backed an opponent. [JPost]
