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.

Dorothy Wachsstock says:

Such a farce to get Jewish votes back. The system will not be operational for years. Smart Jews will not be taken in by this. The dumb Jews will smile and give up Jerusalem and all that this Pres. wants.

Note, Abbas does not do the negotiating..Pres Obama is the negotiator for the Palestinians.

Unless a public statement of apology is made to the P.M. Netanyahu,by the Pres. which he will never do, every Jewish democrat will suffer no matter how pro-Israel he may be.

The silence of the outrage will be felt in the ballot box in Nov. We will not vote for one democrat ever again. They can join Al Sharpton’s minions.

Let’s not forget this the a guy who said “I’ve now been in 57 states — I think one left to go.” –at a campaign event in Beaverton, Oregon. If killing UBL and passing a healthcare program (that 70% of Americans hate) are the only things worth running on… How can Clinton not take a run at this guy?
