• Israeli foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman is furious at Sweden’s foreign ministry for declining to denounce a recent Swedish newspaper article claiming that the IDF harvests organs from Palestinians it kills. [CNN]
• A British tabloid says Madonna got good-luck bracelets from her boyfriend Jesus Luz from his native Brazil for her birthday, but says she won’t wear them “because they clashed with her Kabbalah bracelets.” [Daily Mirror]
• In a similar show of respect for traditional Jewish fashion, Lady Gaga toned down her apparel when she visited Israel earlier this week. [Celebrity Café]
• And the first ultra-Orthodox cop in an upstate New York town is suing the police department she works for, claiming she’s been harassed and discriminated against by fellow officers. During an interview for the job, she says, she was asked “if she could arrest a rabbi, handle a hostage situation at a yeshiva or work on the Sabbath.” [LoHud.com]
