Daybreak: British Neo-Nazi Wanted Auschwitz Sign

Plus a dispatch from a West Bank highway, and more in the news

Print Email

• The pilfered-then-recovered “Arbeit Macht Frei” sign from Auschwitz was intended for a still-unnamed wealthy British Nazi sympathizer, according to the Sunday Mirror. [Haaretz]
• Israel’s Highway 443 traces an ancient route just north of Jerusalem through the West Bank. After an Israeli Supreme Court ruling last week, it will have to be opened to most Palestinian drivers, too. An excellent dispatch. [LAT]
• Former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is likely to remain in a coma for the rest of his life, longtime advisor Dov Weisglass said. Sharon has been comatose for four years. [Arutz Sheva]
• Jean Carroll (née Celine Zeigman), a trailblazer for woman comedians, died at 98. Tablet Magazine produced a podcast about her in 2008. [NYT]
• The head of Iran’s soccer program apologized for accidentally including Israel among the recipients of the progam’s annual New Year’s greeting. Don’t worry, we forgive him (though for his sake we hope his government does, too). [CNN via Vos Iz Neias?]
