Daybreak: A Same-Named Killing

Plus Iran’s big day, U.N. sanctions near, and MoHouse in the news

Print Email

• A Palestinian Authority police officer killed an Israeli soldier, in an area of the West Bank controlled by Israel. Twist #1: the Israeli was a Druse. Twist #2: the victim’s name was Ihab Khatib, the killer’s name was Mahmoud al-Khatib; they are unrelated. [NYT]
• Today Iran observes the anniversary of the founding of the Islamic Republic in 1979. Anti-regime protests and official suppression of them are expected. To follow along, we suggest checking this New Republic liveblog, Twitter, and other news sources (including, as events warrant, The Scroll). [WSJ]
• If Russia remains on board, China will not prevent harsher Security Council sanctions on Iran: so, reportedly, say senior U.N. officials. [Haaretz]
• Palestinian families’ petitioning of the United Nations prompts the New York Times to report on the dispute—amply covered in Tablet Magazine—over the new Museum of Tolerance that is planned for a Jerusalem site containing a Muslim cemetery. [NYT]
• An article profiles Moishe House (“MoHouse!”), an Oakland, California-based nonprofit that subsidizes urban group houses on the condition that they periodically hold Jewish-themed events. “Picture Real World—the MTV series—with challah.” Tablet Magazine already has. [NYT]
• If it feels like there has been less domestic political news this week, that’s probably because the federal government is closed for the fourth straight day today, as this winter’s snowfall in Washington, D.C., has officially set a new record. [WP]
