  • The battle of recognizing the Palestinian Authority as a sovereign state continues. Yesterday, Ireland upgraded the Palestinian delegation’s diplomatic status to that of mission. Last night, the Israeli Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem summoned the Irish ambassador to discuss the issue, and the Israeli ambassador to Dublin will visit the Department of Foreign Affairs.
  • The new Republican-led Congress is starting to put a foot into the pool of international relations. Chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) is leading the fight against the UN Human Rights Council’s singling out Israel over major abusers of human rights across the world.
  • The Israeli media ban was lifted on the case of a Palestinian terror cell captured south of Jerusalem. The group was responsible for the murder of American tourist Christine Logan in December.
  • The story of Albanian Muslims saving thousands of Jews from the Nazis begins to come out. Photographic exhibit in Wales depicts how the local community took in Jews fleeing Hitler.
  • Two rockets were fired from Gaza into a Negev kibbutz Tuesday evening. Hamas had earlier promised to halt terror attacks and the IDF had agreed to stand down after a strong counterattack bombing Hamas strongholds earlier in the month.
  • Al Jazeera leaks continue to shed light on the working relationship between Israel and the PA. The Palestinian Authority worked with defense forces in the killing of Al-Aqsa Martyrs terrorist Hassan al-Madhoun, involved in the murder of 10 in Ashdod in 2004.
  • Thousands of Jews were deported to German death camps on French railroads and now the SNCF is apologizing. A ceremony was held Tuesday to commemorate the dead and the state-run company signed over a plot of land in northern Paris to the local authorities to create a memorial.
  • Anti-Semitic harassment prompts a Hockey player to sue Anaheim Ducks, Bakersfield Condors, and coaches. Jason Bailey claims he was routinely harassed with derogatory comments about his religion as well as not provided with support given other players.
  • Darren Aronofsky, Academy Award nominated director, has come out vociferously against an artistic boycott of Israel. “Israel,” he says, “is a strong pluralistic democracy”. He suggests artists come and add their own opinions to the discourse.
