Daybreak: Satisfaction

Give and take on the settlements, the Swedish thing, and more from the news

Print Email

• Between his meeting with Egyptian President Mubarak and Israel’s gestures toward a settlement freeze, President Obama sees “movement in the right direction” in the Middle East. [NYT]
• Israelis agree, but for the opposite reason; P.M. Bejamin Netanyahu has garnered support for his refusal to fully go along with Obama’s demands. [WPost]
• Meanwhile, the continuing evacuation of illegal outposts in the West Bank poses a problem for the IDF, as many soldiers have personal or family connections to settlers there. [Haaretz]
• The Swedish journalist who accused Israeli soldiers of harvesting Palestinians’ organs has “no clue” if the story’s true; although the Swedish Embassy has denounced the article, the incident has sparked tensions between the two nations. [JPost]

COMMENTING CHARGES
Daily rate: $2
Monthly rate: $18
Yearly rate: $180

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
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.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at letters@tabletmag.com. 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.
