• Some are crediting President Obama’s call for a settlement freeze for the recent boom in housing prices in the West Bank settlement of Maaleh Adumim. [Arutz Sheva]
• Did you know that the commander of the U.S. Air Force is Jewish? And guess in which Middle East ally Gen. Norton A. Schwartz is holding talks this week. [JPost]
• The mayor of Constanta, Romania—the guy who dressed up like a Nazi and goose-stepped in a fashion show—apologized. “I do not share the Nazi ideology,” he said. “On the contrary I appreciate those who wanted to assassinate the mad dictator.” He added he’s been to Israel three times (no word on whether he has many Jewish friends). [ynet]
• And: we’re No. 1! In an overtime thriller, the U.S. basketball squad defeated Israel to snatch first place in the Maccabiah Games. [Haaretz]
