David Samuels chatted with leading New Atheist Sam Harris. Following the to-do over President Obama’s “Polish death camp” remark, Michael C. Moynihan examined the historical record, from all sides. Sara Trapper Spielman profiled frum women who have branched out into filmmaking.

On The Scroll, “Flame,” the new Israeli virus, burned hot in Iranian computers. Israel decided to prosecute a journalist for leaking classified information writing about classified information that somebody else leaked to him. Professor Jonathan Sarna discussed Obama’s use of his book for a speech about Jewish participation in American civic life.

Ambassador Michael Oren joined Twitter, and even agreed to talk about it. That’s probably because he has no idea yet how bad it gets.

For the Mitt Romney campaign, Mormon is the new Jewish. But where would he rank among the presidents in terms of knowledge of Judaism? Thomas Friedman has a reason to believe we all will be received in Graceland. The Kafka estate’s lawyers find themselves in a resonant dilemma, and they might commiserate with ancient-artifact collector Oded Golan.
