Sundown: A Rabbi, a Minister, and a Sheik Walk into an Article

Plus Google shrugs, resolution on the court, and more

Print Email

• In a profile of the “interfaith amigos”—a rabbi, a minister, and a Muslim sheik who get together not in a joke but in houses of worship, spreading their message of cooperation and mutual understanding—the New York Times points out: “Clearly, all three clergymen are in the liberal wing of their respective faiths.” [NYT]
• The board of directors at San Francisco’s Jewish Federation rejected a proposal to prohibit cooperation with groups that “defame” or use boycotts, divestment, or sanctions against Israel; one member said it “would have made the federation the decider and enforcer-in-chief of very subjective language.” [JTA]
• Google explains that it is not responsible for anti-Semitic and racist search results: “One reason is that the word ‘Jew’ is often used in an anti-Semitic context.” In other words, don’t blame the messenger. [AFP]
• Who says competition doesn’t bring people together? Hamed Haddadi, the first Iranian player in the NBA, and Omri Casspi, the league’s first Israeli player, “met at midcourt and shook hands” before their teams, the Memphis Grizzlies and the Sacramento Kings, faced off. [Commercial Appeal]
