Daybreak: U.N. Wants Its Own Probe

Plus more ships set sail, and more in the news

Print Email

• As two Iranian-sponsored ships set sail for Gaza, the United Nations will press ahead with plans for an international probe into the flotilla incident in addition to Israel’s. [Haaretz]

• No U.S. citizen is involved in Israel’s probe—the international observers are Irish and Canadian—in an effort to lend it credibility. [JPost]

• Israelis are trepidatious about what the probe will find and the consequences thereof, but glad it’s not an international one. [LAT]

• What’s Egypt to do? It can’t let Turkey become the new top pro-Palestinian Sunni state … but it sure likes that blockade of bordering Gaza. [WP]

• Ireland is asking Israel to withdraw a designated diplomatic staff member over the eight fake Irish passports allegedly used in the January assassination of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai. [Ynet]

• A former Jersey City, New Jersey, deputy mayor got three years for corruption charges stemming from Syrian Jewish scion Solomon Dwek’s whistle-blowing. [AP/Vos Iz Neias?]

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.
