Daybreak: Settlers Defy Obama

The N.J. case in Israel, the Madoff case, and more

Print Email

• Over the last several days, radical settlers built 11 unauthorized West Bank outposts to commemorate a similar defiance of the British in 1946 and to rebuke the Obama administration. [NYT]
• Though Israeli institutions, notably banks, and even some Israelis allegedly played important roles in the New Jersey money-laundering case, Israel has yet to launch its own investigation. [Forward]
• The trustee representing Bernard Madoff’s investors sued his wife, Ruth, for nearly $45 million. She has already forfeited almost $80 million in assets. [NYT]
• Chabad-Lubavitch filed a motion against Russia in Washington, D.C. federal court in a case involving sacred books. Russia had withdrawn from the case in a different jurisdiction; because the allegations involve international law, though, a federal appellate court ruled that Chabad-Lubavitch could pursue its claims stateside. [JTA]
• Finally, a remotely Jewish angle to the Henry Louis Gates, Jr. brouhaha! It turns out that James Crowley, the Cambridge, Mass. policeman who arrested the Harvard professor last week, in 2007 attended a program for poice officers on racial profiling at the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s Museum of Tolerance in L.A., where he thoroughly impressed his teachers. [WSJ]
