• Vice President Biden’s daughter is marrying a Jew! And not only that … he’s a doctor! [Naked Philadelphian [1]]

• The IDF has been given the go-ahead to continue to stop rocket attacks from Gaza, including, in theory, a ground operation. Judge Goldstone’s op-ed [2] may have been more well-timed than he knew. [AP/Vos Iz Neias? [3]]

• A co-founder of Hamas only recently released from Israeli prison was arrested again. One of his sons was the one who became [9] an Israeli informant. [JTA [10]]
