The brisket flip-flop.(Etsy)

• In Brussels, families of Palestinians who died in the 2009 Gaza conflict sued former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, opposition leader Tzipi Livni, and a dozen other Israeli military and civilian leaders for war crimes and crimes against humanity. [JTA]

• Half-Jewish hip-hop artist Drake had the number-one album last week and the third biggest opening of the year. [Arts Beat]

• What tensions? Almost two dozen Turkish military officers and soldiers are training in Israel on an aerial drone, four of which Israel is selling to Ankara under a 2004 contract. [JTA]

• While much of upstate New York hemorrhages population (Buffalo alone lost 1,000 people last year; maybe because the Bills suck so much?), Kiryas Joel experienced the state’s highest growth—78 percent—thanks largely to its ultra-Orthodox enclave. [AP/Vos Iz Neias?]

• A new Website,, is bringing Israelis and Syrians together online to discuss the issues, with some success and some friction. [BBC]
