Some links for the weekend

Reuters Middle East Watch notes in which paragraph Reuters decides to put some context into a story.

Jonathan Tobin on why the Kadima peace talks failed.

MEMRI brings us a lovely Egyptian government newspaper item on when, exactly, the Jews will be destroyed. (h/t Challah Hu Akbar)

Rick Richman on UNRWA in Gaza, echoing something I mentioned recently (h/t CHA)

A welcome development [pun intended] in Jerusalem on top of an old abandoned Arab village.

A joke from Conan O'Brien on Wednesday:
Egypt is in the second day of angry street protests. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is calling for calm.

Because nothing calms an enraged Arab country like a powerful woman ordering it around.
