Tammy Duckworth, a Democrat, is an Iraq war veteran challenging Representative Joe Walsh, Republican of Illinois' northwest suburban 8th congressional district (about an hour's drive from Chicago, give or take).

Democratic National Committee Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), was uninvited last week, after having been scheduled to speak Friday night at Temple Israel of Greater Miami.

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Josh Mandel is returning $105,000 in campaign contributions, as the FBI is investigating possible campaign finance violations.

According to the Israeli extreme left, Jerusalem Day is "a holiday only to settlers and racists, who get a license to provoke and harass Palestinians." In the march of Jerusalem Day, tens of thousands of Israelis go from the western part of the capital through the Muslim Quarter, ending in front of the Wailing Wall. The parade has received the greatest amount of criticism on the Left.

Early this week, the Obama administration was ready to give up on its "haggling" with Netanyahu's government, abandoning its effort to renew the freezing of Jewish settlement construction.

President Obama on Wednesday went on the record with a statement that he now supports same-sex marriage, a reversal of his longstanding opposition. While US public opinion on this issue has seemingly reached a point of no return, the debate within Orthodox Judaism has centered on accepting gays rather than legitimizing the gay agenda. But a few cracks have appeared even in that wall.

But the new coalition deal means decidedly sobering news for Israel's two major religious camps - the Haredim and the settlement movement.
