• Khairat el-Shater, the Muslim Brotherhood’s recently disqualified presidential candidate, accused Egypt’s military leadership of being unwilling to cede real power. [WP]

• Israel’s Masorti movement (their version of Conservative Judaism) will ordain gays and lesbians as rabbis. [JTA]

• U.S. anti-Semitism envoy Hannah Rosenthal is meeting the anti-Semitic mayor of Malmö, Sweden, on his home turf. For more, read our story. [JTA/Forward]

• The Times’ Disunion blog, about the Civil War, does its Judah Benjamin capsule. [NYT Opinionator]

• Such an awesome article about how the NFL schedule gets made. Guy in charge is named Katz. [NYT]

• Rep. Eric Cantor did or didn’t admit that there is some anti-Jewish bias among the Republican House caucus, depending on whom you ask. I think the tape shows weird ambiguity that nonetheless isn’t enough to actually say he was saying that thing. Boy this election season’s gonna be fun. [ThinkProgress/Commentary Contentions]
