Other highlights of #AIPAC2010! For Allison Hoffman’s dispatches, see here, here, and here.

• AIPAC unveiled a comprehensive campaign to decrease Israel’s isolation, mainly by securing its membership to various international bodies—including NATO. [Forward]

• Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-New York) claims Prime Minister Netanyahu owes him $1,800. Seriously. [Capital J]

• A little-noticed but interesting contention in Secretary of State Clinton’s address: that the new democratization of communication wrought by the Internet means Israel can’t as effectively control its message. [Ben Smith]

• Alan Solow (who Allison Hoffman profiled last week) focused, in his address, on Iran sanctions and international de-legitimization of Israel. [Capital J]

• Peace group CODEPINK took credit for the false press release claiming that AIPAC advocated a full settlement freeze. [CODEPINK]

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.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at 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.

Erastus CoupeDeVille says:

Good conference in Washington DC… it justifies having the Prime Minister of Israel attend it and then meet/greet/influence members of the US Congress… much in the same way that US Presidents attend America-first conventions in Jerusalem and then meet/greet/influence members of the Knesset.
