Shavua tov, my dear readers. Here’s the main news I missed today:

  • Egypt’s Muslim brotherhood thinks US President Barack Obama is helping the “Zionist entity,” despite all signs pointing to the exact opposite.
  • Hizbullah thinks senior UN envoy Terje Roed-Larsen supports Israel, despite all signs pointing to the exact opposite.
  • The Pope is in Israel, and he wants us to know he hearts us.
  • Welcome to Family Feud, Bedouin edition, where both sides get three strikes.
