• It’s been reported that Mel Gibson told his ex-girlfriend that he hopes she is “raped by a pack of [n-words].” But it turns out he was just doing a spot for the ADL’s “Anti-Semitism is Anti-Me” campaign. [HuffPo]

• In a special address on the subject, Prime Minister Netanyahu said he would be hesitant to free terrorists who would be likely to strike again in exchange for captured soldier Gilad Shalit. [Haaretz]

• Files listing all the French collaborationists will soon be made public, scanned, and put online. “I’m not in the mood to see a four-hour documentary on the Nazis,” says Annie Hall somewhere. [Telegraph/Vos Iz Neias?]

• In the comments, we’re alerted to a podcast with Sam Munson over the politics in his novel. [Forward]

• Jesse Michaels, of legendary punk act Operation Ivy, discusses his late father, essayist Leonard. [Jewcy]

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.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at 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.

I was just seeking this information for some time. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your site. I wonder what’s the lack of Google strategy that do not rank this kind of informative web sites in top of the list. Generally the top web sites are full of garbage.


Your comment may be no longer than 2,000 characters, approximately 400 words. HTML tags are not permitted, nor are more than two URLs per comment. We reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments.
