Daybreak: New Roadmap Still Bumpy

Mitchell’s dreams, HRW’s scandal, and more in the news

Print Email

• A group of Israeli and Palestinian activists have created a comprehensive “recipe” for peace; at over 400 pages long, it “highlights how complex and expensive it would be” to broker a deal. [AP]
• U.S. envoy George Mitchell will attempt to “wring” an agreement to freeze settlement growth from Israeli P.M. Benjamin Netanyahu. Somehow. [AP]
• An employee of Human Rights Watch has been suspended after the discovery that he is an avid collector of Nazi memorabilia, which is, depending which side one takes in the debate over HRW, “either incontrovertible proof of bias or an irrelevant smear.” [NYT]
• A Rasmussen survey says that 59 percent of Americans would support helping Israel if it is attacked—that’s fewer than would support Canada and more than France. [Ynet]
• A hideous rumor that Jews harvest organs from Albanian children is sweeping the anti-Semitic blogosphere; Jerusalem Post commenters blame Sweden for reviving the blood libel. [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.

Wow! This can be one particular of the most beneficial blogs We’ve ever arrive across on this subject. Basically Fantastic. I am also a specialist in this topic so I can understand your effort.
