(JTA) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has a knack for embroiling himself in political sideshows during foreign memorial services.
He entered Israel’s latest tempest in a teapot earlier this week, attending the march for victims of France’s terror attacks even though French President Francois Hollande asked him not to.

CBS has just released the trailer for the four-hour mini-series, “The Dovekeepers,” which will air March 31 and April 1.
