Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

didn’t step very far forward. First he blames the film on an
Israeli, then he says that 100 Jews contributed their hard-earned
money to make what appears to be an inept, artistically unappealing
piece of trash that costs 4 decent Americans their lives. And now
after fooling the cast into believing they were making an innocent
movie that actually leaves them vulnerable to death threats, he
tries to pretend he hovered on the edges of this fiasco instead of
causing it.

wonder if he’s an American or an expatriate who used and misused our
freedom of speech to bring grief to so many innocent people.

what this moron believes, Jews in Israel and America, and around the
world would love to be friends with peace loving Muslims if they
would reciprocate. We’re not trying to insult them.
