• Secretary of State Clinton flatly denied that the U.S. had assassinated an Iranian scientist. [JPost]

• Her deputy met with a Muslim Brotherhood representative in Egypt. [Haaretz]

• Another West Bank mosque was vandalized in a price tag attack. At what point is enough going to be enough for the Israeli government to put an end to this? [JTA]

• Not that homicidal attacks on synagogues in Bergen County, New Jersey, are any better. [JTA]

• Fordham, a Jesuit university, has a cantor singing the National Anthem before men’s basketball games because they superstitiously think he makes them lucky, thereby fulfilling both Jewish and Protestant stereotypes of Catholics. [NYT City Room]

• Speaking of stereotypes! Comedian David Cross complained about a producer on the most recent Chipmunks movie, “She is the personification of what people think about when they think negatively about Jews.” No word on whether Cross is blue in the face after the remark. [Hollywood Reporter]
