• Naveed Haq was found guilty of murdering one woman at a Seattle Jewish center in 2006. He will spend the rest of his life in prison. [Haaretz]
• Slate’s Daniel Gross profiles Mrs. Cohen, from Hadera, Israel—a “John Doe”-esque name (she doesn’t actually exist) for the typical Israeli investor. [Slate]
• A special, funny link for our Christian readers: how to celebrate Christmas while being sensitive to your non-Christian friends. [The New Yorker]
• This is what a MacBook that Israeli border security has put three bullets through looks like. [Gizmodo]
