• First on the agenda at the G-8 summit today in Canada is Iran sanctions. [Ynet]

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.

When did I hear that the Arab League would make peace with Israel if they just gave in to the Palestinians? hmmmmmm! I remember. It was at the Madrid Conference where everything was promised to Israel. Just give up the Golan Heighs (watch out Israel because that is what Pres. Obama will demand next since he is now negotiating for the Arab World)and let them throw rocks down..look what happened when you left Gaza..Not even James Baker would have treated P.M. Netanyahu like Pres. Obama did. I want to know why Netanyahu didn’t make a statement like the former Amb. Dan Gillerman made on Fox Cable. It would have made him look strong instead of slinking back to Israel without any statement. Weakness doesn’t win Israel any support but bring out the anti-Israelis which Pres.Obama’s treatment opened the door to all of them. Now if the Pres. of Iran wanted to visit, Obama would give him a state dinner.

Alexandra Grossman says:

KNOW THAT WHEN IT ALL COMES DOWN, AND EVERYONE TURNS THEIR BACKS ON ISRAEL AS IS WRITTEN, I AND MY FAMILY WILL NOT. GOD GOES BEFORE US AND COMES BEHIND US AND WE SHOULD DO THE SAME FOR EACH OTHER, AMEN???

The article is very useful, and any writing variety of the creator is dramatic. I get pleasure from every minute when i read the application. It is certainly well worth to read the paper. You will study from it. A very good read.

Awesome point… not 100% sure I agree, but whatever. Everyone can have an opinion, right?

Many factors behind falling fond of this guide. The experiences were properly defined and intensely persuasive. After reading this great article, I learned a good deal which will be very helpful to my long run life.

Excellent guide. Thanks designed for sharing this level of detail. It’s truly of great aid to me. From your current article, I know a great deal more in the respect. I can continue watching your write-up.
