...Kids say the darndest things to escape the wrath of a strict Muslim parent—especially when their clandestine date with a Christian runs past curfew.True. That can happen. And any Muslim parent who does that kind of abominable behavior should be condemned to the fullest as well.

And when it turned out this was all a hoax, the MSM abandoned it. From what the report now tells, it suggests she just made up the story to escape the wrath of a possessive Muslim father, and:

In a positive example set by some delegates at the UN (and those are surely rare today), they joined Danny Danon on a visit to two important places:
Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon welcomed a delegation of fourteen ambassadors to the UN to Israel for a tour of the country organized by AJC Project Interchange.Will this change the main UN council's position? Unfortunately, I'm not sure that'll happen, even if the particular delegates who did visit are willing to be positive here.
On Thursday the delegation visited the Yesha city of Ma'aleh Adumim, east of Jerusalem, and toured the Western Wall Tunnels in Jerusalem's Old City.
The delegation also met with Ma’aleh Adumim Mayor Benny Kashriel who briefed the ambassadors on the history of the city.
[...] Danon also addressed resolutions adopted by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) denying the Jewish people’s historical ties to the city of Jerusalem.
"We showed the ambassadors the historical and religious connections between the Jewish people and our historic capital of Jerusalem. This is our answer to those who try to deny reality and rewrite history," Danon said, adding that he hopes that the visit to Israel will provide the ambassadors with the chance to gain a comprehensive view of Israel’s challenges in a volatile region, as well as the Jewish state’s accomplishments.

The famous board game by Charles Darrow is now getting an Israelized edition set in Jerusalem:
Jerusalem has been fought over for millennia, and continues to be to this day. The struggles have often turned violent, as the city has been battled over by many civilizations, including the Babylonians, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, and Ottomans. Through it all, the Jewish people have never forgotten their connection to Jerusalem.Well this is a great idea, and just what history buffs need as much as board game devotees. I'd certainly like to have a copy of this at home.
Now families can play for control of the holy city from the comfort of their living rooms.
Kodkod, which produces Monopoly games in Israel, has announced that it is creating a special Jerusalem-based version of the popular board game. Instead of vying for the deeds to Park Place or Boardwalk, players will vie for the deeds to the Western Wall, the City of David, the Mahane Yehuda Market, and even the Knesset.
Eli Dagani, the CEO of Kodkod, said: "This is the first time there's going to be a Monopoly game dedicated entirely to one city in Israel, and we want it to reflect the spirit of Jerusalem."
