• Iran is threatening to boycott the 2012 London Olympics over the official logo, which they claim spells ‘Zion’. It doesn’t, but to be fair, it is a very ugly logo. [Guardian]

• J Street ain’t kosher. [New Voices]

• A history of the Anti-JAP campaign. [Forward]

• Bibi told his party that despite “making efforts to maintain the existing [settlement] construction… we must understand that we are [faced with] a very difficult international reality.” [Haaretz]

• Susan Sontag: Awesome writer, fascinating human being, kangaroo mother. [T Magazine]

@Mayor Emanuel revealed! His name is Dan Sinker, and he has “a heart made out of Chicago and balls of punk rock.” Awesome. [Atlantic]

• Pro-Gaddafi forces are waging a large-scale counter attack. [NYT]

• In similarly depressing news, the UN Human Rights Council—the one that approved sanctions like 5 seconds ago—plans to adopt a report praising Libya’s human rights record. [Commentary]

• Iran has allegedly kidnapped opposition leaders Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karoubi in secret from their two-weeks of house arrest and brought them to Heshmatiyeh jail in Tehran—The day before a nationwide rally. Oy. [Newser]
