Daybreak: Iran Swap May Forestall Sanctions

Plus Chomsky turned back, Rahm ‘screwed up,’ and more in the news

Noam Chomsky.(Chomsky.info)

• Iran agreed to send most of its enriched uranium to Turkey in exchange for differently graded uranium from international regulators. [LAT]

• Palestinian boycotts of Jewish West Bank businesses are beginning to have real bite. [WP]

• Israeli officials denied left-wing intellectual Noam Chomsky entry to Israel, though they now look to be reconsidering. (“Real democracies aren’t afraid of ridiculous men like Noam Chomsky,” says Jeffrey Goldberg. Ouch!) [JPost]

• Obama chief-of-staff Rahm Emanuel told a multisectarian group of rabbis the administration “screwed up the messaging” and wasn’t sufficiently clear about its staunch support for Israel. [JPost/Vos Iz Neias?]

• Pat Buchanan engaged in a bit of Jew-counting on the topic of Supreme Court nominations. (In fairness, so did the Forward’s J.J. Goldberg.) [JTA]

• Someone wrote an article that you’ll be discussing all week. Much, much more at 10. [NYRB]

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.

You left out the nasty piece of Jew counting by the Washington Post’s Kathleen Parker.

Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
