• For the first time, an al-Qaeda affiliate released a video threat in Hebrew. It pledged revenge for yesterday’s assassination of two terrorists in Gaza. [JTA]

• A judge ruled that local Muslims can move forward with plans to build a mosque in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Nope, the ADL isn’t all bad. [Associated Baptist Press]

• Former Blossom star and Tablet Magazine contributor Mayim Bialik will play a recurring role on CBS’s Big Bang Theory. [Jewcy]

• Turkey is pretty much turkey, but here are some very Jewish Thanksgiving-appropriate side dishes. [JTA]

• How ping-pong came to stand for the American Dream in its suburban iteration. And a reminder to send in your ping-pong haikus! [Slate]

• Airlines based in the European Union will be exempt from regulations requiring identification clearance codes for entering Israeli airspace. [NYT]

If you need another reason to support the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, this really funny video should do the trick.

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.

Hilarious! You got me. I’ll donate. Very effective.

Currently it seems like BlogEngine is the preferred blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?
