• According to a new WikiLeaks release, Russia tried to sabotage the nuclear plant it was helping Iran build. [AFP/Reuters]

• Somehow made it through the whole week without posting this profile of David Mamet, focusing on his conversion (to conservatism, that is; he remains Jewish—actually, that has a lot to do with it). [The Weekly Standard]

• A guilty verdict was handed down in Israel’s sensational Rose murder case. [NYT]

• IHH, the Turkish group behind the flotillas, condemned the killing of Bin Laden. [Meir Amit]

• Most of those Korean-Jewish babies are being raised Jewish. [Forward]

• If l’affaire DSK has revealed one thing, it is that France no longer has an anti-Semitism problem. [The Daily Beast]

• Anne Frank wedding cards! [Regretsy]

• Sheldon Adelson backs (though not necessarily endorses) Newt Gingrich. [Jewish Week]

Les Lieber is the coolest 99-year-old you or anyone else knows (and to answer your immediate objection, Jacques Barzun is not 99, he is 103).
