• Over American objection, the U.N. Human Rights Council is sending a fact-finding mission to probe the effects of Israeli settlements on the Palestinians (including in East Jerusalem). Some right-wing outlets are already calling it “Goldstone 2.” [Haaretz]

• U.S. and European intelligence agree: Iran has not decided to build a bomb and are years away from truly having one if they make that decision. In the words of a senior U.S. official, “They’re keeping the soup warm but they are not cooking it.” [Reuters]

• The administration plans to allow $1.5 billion in Egyptian aid to be transferred despite Congressional restrictions in the wake of the military government’s crackdown on NGOs. [FP The Cable]

• The mother and husband of three of those murdered in Toulouse, France, called on Jews to do good deeds and observe Shabbat in memory of her family. [Chabad.org]

• Hundreds of fans of Beitar Jerusalem assaulted Arab cleaning personnel at a mall (Beitar is that club), and it’s been captured on video, yet so far no arrests have been made. [Haaretz]

• Drake’s new video, to feature Lil’ Wayne, is being filmed at a Miami synagogue. Can’t wait. [Faith Goes Pop]
