The book chronicles the exploits of a ragtag unit of Arabic-speaking Jewish spies, assembled by the British during World War II, who would go undercover in the battle for Israeli statehood.

A Florida Man known as “Mr. Perfect” is in jail for literally battering a female victim. Cops charge that 45-year-old Dwayne Zimmerman was intoxicated late Friday night when he insulted the victim, who was on the porch of Zimmerman’s mobile home preparing to make pancakes for dinner. Cops say that after Zimmerman flung a cooking pan, he picked up a bowl filled with pancake batter and threw it at the victim. The bowl shattered, with its contents landing in the woman’s hair and on her clothing. Batter also caked portions of the screened-in porch. Zimmerman was arrested at the scene on a felony battery charge. He was booked into the Hernando County jail early Saturday morning and remains locked up in lieu of $2000 bond. A judge has ordered Zimmerman to have no contact with the victim. (

A naked man has reportedly been arrested in Moscow after trying to board a plane while shouting about how clothes made him less agile and aerodynamic. Eyewitnesses said the would-be passenger passed through checks at Domodedovo Airport before suddenly taking off all his clothes and running on to the jet bridge, which connects airport terminals to planes. A witness told Russian channel REN TV, “He shouted that he was naked because clothing impairs the aerodynamics of the body. He flies with more agility when undressed.” Airport staff prevented the man from boarding his flight to Crimea and he was later detained by police officers. A video released after the man’s arrest showed him sitting on the ground, still naked and surrounded by police officers.
