Eichmann in Jerusalem.(art.com)

• New documents purport to show that Iran tried to purchase nuclear weapons from Pakistan in 1987. [Haaretz]

• The Monsey, N.Y., Beit Din investigating Rabbi Leib Tropper filed a civil suit to get him removed from one yeshiva’s bank accounts. [FailedMessiah]

• A Republican research document, apparently geared toward winning over Ohio’s (not insubstantial) Jewish community, is titled, “Buck-Oy State” and in one place reads, “Ohio Dems Are All Verklempt Thanks to Obama’s Meshugeh Health Care Experiment.” [Ben Smith]

• Paul Krugman notes that Israel’s central bank has, with great success, intervened in its currency in the way America fears China will intervene with its own. [The Conscience of a Liberal]

• Researchers want access to sealed records that, they say, prove that the Catholic Church aided Adolf Eichmann’s escape to Argentina. [JPost]

• Gawker takes down Dan Senor, the Jewish former Bush speechwriter who is considering a run for Kirsten Gillibrand’s Senate seat in New York. [Gawker]

Why link to Gawker, which does nothing but spew witless juvenile resentment into the ether? Seriously. Thomas Friedman, a frequent critic of Israel, has done a monumental job of reporting from and explaining the Middle East for decades. His narrative shapes the way events there are viewed, by all parties to the various conflicts in the region. The Saudis chose him to deliver their peace proposal to the public a few years ago out of respect for his objectivity and integrity. Not a single writer for Gawker will ever come close to matching his achievements, not a single writer at Gawker would have the intelligence to learn Arabic, or the courage to live in Beirut for years during the civl war in Lebanon, to report from the War Zone. He broke the Sabra and Shatila story, among others. So why the cheap shot? And they’re not even funny.
