• Midterm elections carried the Republicans to huge victories: They took back the House, but not quite enough seats to take the Senate as well; they also took many governorships and statehouses. [NYT]

• Meet your newest Jewish senator(-elect): Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut. [NYT]

• A senior European diplomat reported that while economic sanctions have had a real impact on Iranian life, the country’s leaders remain stubborn in their nuclear ambition. [LAT]

• The two synagogue-bound bombs from Yemen were addressed to long-dead Muslim persecutors—Diego Deza, of Inquisition Spain, and Reynald of Châtillon, of the Second Crusade—leading some to further believe that the bombs were not intended to blow up at their destinations. In other news, someone in al-Qaeda got their hands on a copy of Herzog. [NYT]

• The Palestinian Authority renovated 14 schools in East Jerusalem; in semi-defiance of an Israeli ban, Prime Minister Salam Fayyad made an appearance on the outskirts. [NYT]

• Will a U.N. tribunal’s finding of Syrian complicity in the 2005 assassination of the former Lebanese prime minister lead to a Hezbollah coup in Lebanon? [Jeffrey Goldberg]

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.
