• In response to popular dissatisfaction, Egypt’s prime minister appointed a new cabinet, including a foreign minister who has not been the Camp David treaty’s biggest fan. [NYT]

• Meanwhile, former Arab League head Amr Moussa is politicking, likely in an effort to eventually be voted Egypt’s next president. [JPost]

• The peace process failures and the Arab uprisings have hurt the German-Israeli alliance, which, for pretty obvious reasons, has traditionally been unusually strong. [NYT]

• The trial of Alan Gross, the Jewish U.S. contractor charged in Cuba of “acts against the independence and territorial integrity of the state,” is over, a verdict on the way. [JTA]

• Charlie Sheen: Jew. (Seriously, actually.) [JTA]
