(AFP)

• Following a trip to Yad Vashem, Har Herzl, and the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, President Obama left Israel for Jordan. Much of his last day’s schedule was impacted by strong winds and an unexpected sandstorm, which sent metaphor-hungry writers in sugar shock. [JPost]

• In what will be greeted as another bold statement, President Obama said that the creation of Israel didn’t happen because of the Holocaust and that the existence of the State of Israel prevent another Holocaust. [JTA]

• There are mixed reports about this incident, but we know that at least two people were kidnapped in Sinai today and that at least one of them is an Israeli. [ToI]

• Jewcy aims to make the internet by storm by posting the GIF of a kitten eating matzo during Tablet’s Passover video. [Jewcy]

• Natalie Portman’s new cowgirl flick is having a rough time getting off the ground after Jude Law drops out as leading man. Just saying, I’ve starred in a Passover video. [THR]
