Should we engage Hamas and other terrorist groups?(Mahmud Hams/AFP/Getty Images)

Today in Tablet Magazine, Senior Writer Allison Hoffman introduces Harlan: In the Shadow of Jew Süss, a German documentary about director Veit Harlin and Jew Süss, the grotesquely anti-Semitic movie Joseph Goebbels commissioned from him. According to Mideast columnist Lee Smith, recent history demonstrates, contra a new book, that engaging with terrorists does not usually lead to measured, rational responses in kind. Rania Moaz remembers her time in Granada, Spain, during college, and now her time in Dubai, as a single, observant Muslim. Continue following Steve Stern’s The Frozen Rabbi with a new installment (which is all of three paragraphs—c’mon, what are you waiting for?). The Scroll likes to think of itself a novel serialized every hour on the hour (give or take).

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.
