I’m still working out the kinks in the news roundup generated by Paper.li which creates a weekly “newspaper” from my Twitter feed. Paper.li boasts a video section, but none of the videos I shared made it into the issue. So two are be embedded at the end.

U.N. MeI ran across a story in the Jerusalem Post about a documentary film that was released June 1. “A pro-Israel activist is hoping that his documentary on the United Nations brings focus to what he says is the world body’s global ineffectiveness,” the JPost reports. The trailer says it all. What impresses me is that the filmmaker, Ami Horowitz, shows remarkable constraint because, according to the JPost, “the film never mentions what many consider one of the most egregious examples of the UN’s moral blindspot: a relentless focus on Israel.” You can read more at UNMeMovie.com.
Weekly smack of satireThe other video is from my favorite satirists, Latma (Hebrew from slap or punch). The group Latma is headed up by Jerusalem Post columnist Caroline Glick (whose articles appear in my roundups regularly).
This week Latma tackles social protests, the U.S.’ lame response to the bloodshed in Syria and what appears to be a response to the Peace Now organization chief who was offended by last week’s Latma song.
