Daybreak: Who to Believe?

Is Ahmadinejad a Jew? Plus more questions from the news.

Print Email

The Washington Times spoke with three anonymous officials who said that President Obama agreed to maintain a ongoing understanding with Israel that exempts the nation from revealing its nuclear weapons. [WT]
• In a slightly more dubious exposé, the British Daily Telegraph reported that Iranian President Ahmadinejad has Jewish roots, based on a former family name. [Telegraph]
• Rival paper The Guardian attempts to debunk the idea with a different interpretation of the name. [Guardian]
• Meanwhile, Ahmadinejad agreed to allow inspectors into his country’s nuclear facilities. [NYT]
• Marek Edelman, a leader in the 1943 Warsaw Ghetto revolt who received the French Legion of Honor and Poland’s Order of the White Eagle, died last week at age 90. [AP]

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.
