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.

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.

BUT OF COURSE. THE ENTIRE EVENT WAS A TOTAL SET UP. REUTERS AND AP ARE THE GREAT OFFENDERS EACH AND EVERY TIME OF DISTORTIONS OF NEWS, MOST ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO ISRAEL.
FOR THEIR ADVANCEMENT THEY WOULD STAGE A LARGE IMPROMPTU OF THEIR MOTHER HAVING SEX WITH AN ANTELOPE.
NOW THERE’S AN IDEA

Defensible Borders to Secure Israel’s Future –

Rather than any international peacekeeping mission, the best course is bilateral security arrangements.  The Israeli experience with an international presence has been poor. UNIFIL in Lebanon has not lived up to Israeli expectations in preventing the re-armament of Hizbullah after the 2006 Second Lebanon War.  For more on defensible borders to secure Israel’s future, see this piece by Maj.-Gen. (res.) Uzi Dayan –  http://www.jcpa.org/text/security/dayan.pdf  and http://www.defensibleborders.org.

 

I am amazed the UN is being honest about it. Normally they simply blame Isreal and call for condemnation without caring about the facts at all.

My companion and I actually loved studying this weblog submit, I used to be just itching to know do you commerce featured posts? I am always looking for somebody to make trades with and merely thought I might ask.

Your site is very helpful. I found the information that I need and I will come back. Best Christmas Gift
