Sundown: Lebanon Is Hummus Champ

Plus YamulKap, ash over Israel, and more

Holy sh*t.(Anwar Amro/AFP/Getty Images)

• Saturday, a day which will live in infamy, Israel lost the hummus title to its enemy to the north. [Ynet]

• A profile of the Israeli company Teva, the world’s biggest maker of generic drugs. The owner describes it thusly: “We’re kibbutzniks.” [NYT]

• The YamulKap. Pretty self-explanatory, really. [YamulKap]

• An epic takedown of Harold Bloom’s review of Anthony Julius’s book on British anti-Semitism. [Jewcy]

• The volcanic ash has officially reached Israel, and has even disrupted a few flights! Wait, why does this seem vaguely exciting? [Arutz Sheva]

• MTV is throwing a massive party in Israel this summer. In addition to Israeli pop stars, Pink (who is Jewish!) and Jay-Z (who is not!) will perform. [Ynet]

Here’s Jay-Z killing it on this past weekend’s Saturday Night Live.

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.

That looks like it needs a giant pita, or better yet a lafa bigger than a street corner. Or maybe a 1000 kilo of crisps; whatever it takes to win this battle.

Daniel says:

It is not “the owner” of Teva who said “we are kiibutzniks”. Teva is publicly traded and owned. It was the head of US operations.
