• Brazil and Argentina have recognized the state of Palestine within the 1967 borders. About 100 other countries have done so. [Laura Rozen]

• Hummus controversy at Princeton. Read the whole thing. [NYT]

• A shark killed an Egyptian woman in the resort town of Sharm el-Sheikh. This was clearly a Mossad plot, much like the Amity Attacks of 1975. [JPost]

• Ron Kampeas argues that, as of now, there is no reason to be concerned about Tea Party members agitating to alter America’s Israel policy. [Capital J]

• Yiddish in Brooklyn! The Times should write more articles like this. [NYT]

• Iran’s new soccer coach might be one Diego Maradona. [CNN]

Maradona is a terrible soccer coach, but the guy could play alright.
