Iran’s nukes, not afraid of Tariq Ramadan, and more

Print Email

Today in Tablet Magazine, Nathan Thrall brings us up-to-date on Iran’s nuclear program with a helpful timeline. Senior Writer Allison Hoffman considers The Girl on the Train, a new French film that explores non-Jews’ desire “to access some of what being Jewish has to offer”—specifically, the history of suffering. We interview noted intellectual and journalist Paul Berman on Tariq Ramadan, the Muslim intellectual whom the United States has decided to allow into the country, and who is the subject of Berman’s forthcoming book. Corruption allegations against former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert cause Etgar Keret to wonder why the already-rich and –powerful break the law to become more so. In his weekly haftorah column, Liel Leibovitz compares Biblical Egypt to another empire past its prime: NBC (for the record, Leibovitz is with Coco). The Scroll is not rooting for O’Brien, Leno, or Letterman as much as for a continued rollicking good story.
