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.

George One says:

Turkish – Israeli deal. It would be great to re-establish the cooperation that once existed between Turkey and Israel, however it is an illusion to think this is possible while AKP is the ruling party in Turkey. Messrs Erdogan and Davutoglu hate Israel and the Jews and are ideologically close to Iran and to the terrorist organisations such as Hizbulla and Hamas. If the Turkish population wake up in time, they may avoid Turkey being transformed into a theoc¨racy like Iran, but it may already be too late.

Whatever Turkey would like from Iran isn’t worth it since Iran will eat Turkey in its control streak. Greece conquered Persia(Iran) centuries ago and they have been trying to overcome the loss of power. If Turkey establishes a relationship with Israel then they could show the world there’s no room excessive war. The bombs become useless.

Save trees. Wipe with an owl.
