• Prime Minister Netanyahu offered, and the Palestinian Authority rejected, a deal under which he would extend the settlement freeze in exchange for recognition of Israel as a Jewish state. [WP]

Carl Paladino may be preparing to call his gubernatorial rival, Andrew Cuomo, anti-Semitic, on the grounds that he named Russell Simmons, who has hosted Louis Farrakhan, to an honorary position on his campaign. I once saw Russell Simmons at a restaurant—what does that make me? [Daily Intel]

• This is the best thing I have ever read about Jon Stewart. [Jewish Journal]

• Todd Gitlin and Nissim Calderon argue against an Israeli academic boycott. [Entanglements]

• A profile of Hewlett-Packard’s new Jewish, Hebrew-speaking CEO, Léo Apotheker. [Ynet]

• This has nothing to do with Jewishness, but boy oh boy should you read this article. [Guardian]

Barbara Walter once interviewed Russell Simmons in his meditation room at his home. In that room was a big picture of Louis Farrakhan. I distinctly remember wondering why Barbara, never asked him about that picture. He has also come out and lauded the work of Farrakhan as terrific for the African-American community. Simmons is an anti-Semite. Just because you don’t like Paladino doesn’t mean Cuomo isn’t a creep.
