• Vice President Biden’s daughter is marrying a Jew! And not only that … he’s a doctor! [Naked Philadelphian]

• The IDF has been given the go-ahead to continue to stop rocket attacks from Gaza, including, in theory, a ground operation. Judge Goldstone’s op-ed may have been more well-timed than he knew. [AP/Vos Iz Neias?]

• Jason Diamond eloquently points out that the way Tim Tebow wears religion on his sleeve is the exact opposite of Koufaxing. [Jewcy]

• Brett Ratner—of Money Talks and the Rush Hour franchise—will direct an adaptation of the book Hunting Eichmann. Not sure he’s the best guy for the project, but OK. [Forward The Schmooze]

• Maybe Amar’e Stoudemire’s get-up yesterday wasn’t a costume … . [Page Six]

• A co-founder of Hamas only recently released from Israeli prison was arrested again. One of his sons was the one who became an Israeli informant. [JTA]
