• Israeli P.M. Benjamin Netanyahu will address the U.N. General Assembly in September, rather than sending Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, who even Bibi knows is seen as a wingnut. [Haaretz]
• Jakob Finci, Bosnia’s ambassador to Switzerland, went before the European Court of Human Rights to argue for changing Bosnia’s constitution, which prohibits him from running for president because he’s a Jew. [Jewish Week]
• Obama advisor Dennis Ross will have a key role in determining U.S. strategy toward Iran. Some say he’s the wrong guy because of his tendency to support Israel; others think this will help him keep Israel from attacking. [WP]
• An orthodox Jew who married a Catholic and was disowned by his family feels kinship with gay people, prompts Andrew Sullivan to muse on the universality of tzuris. [Atlantic]
• Hollywood agent Ari Emanuel is emerging as the biggest of the big-shots, perhaps due to a “surge of ambition” brought on by his brother Rahm’s ascendance to the White House. [NYT]
