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.

Wikileaks Comes for Jerusalem

(both literally and figuratively)


Judaism (well, Orthodox Judaism) is the fastest growing religion in the United States. The youngest average age for communities in the entire country is led by Kiryas Joel and Lakewood.

In the Middle East, the Jewish population of Israel is growing by leaps and bounds. And that’s even before we bring up what’s happening in Jordan. In 1967, Jerusalem, and the West and East Banks of the Jordan were Jew-free in accordance with the left-wing, genocidal, apartheid teachings of Mohammed (piss upon him). Today, Jordan is on track to be majority Jewish by 2030.

The “demographic threat” is a mirage.

Dan, Did you just suggest that Tel Aviv is the capital of Israel? Would you mind explaining why you would think to do something so obviously untrue and, let’s face it, troubling on many levels?

Shame on you Barry for spreading hate.

Dan Klein says:

LB, gotta admit–just complete brain fart. Thanks for noting. Fixed in a second.

Thanks man. Enjoy the break.

spreading hate? Of who? Of Mohammed? That’s okay – read the Quran and history. Mohammed and his followers are quite worthy of hatred.

Barry,If you really want to know who teaches hatred Read what the Talmud teaches the Jews about the christians; Babha Kama (113a)states. A JEW MAY LIE AND PERJURE HIMSELF TO CONDEMN A CHRISTIAN In Iore Dea (158, 1) it says:. A SICK CHRISTIAN MUST NOT BE AIDED A CHRISTIAN WOMAN IN CHILDBIRTH MUST NOT BE HELPED there are many more laws such as a baby may be killed if it is concidered that the child may grow up and harm a Jew. I think the above explains the why the Jews behave the way they do

There is a new Barbie doll on the market – Power Ranger Barbie . . . with karate-chop action; complete with the ridiculous outfit

Some people see the cup as half empty. Some people see the cup as half full. I see the cup as too large.

I take enjoyment in seeing sites that fulfil the worth of providing a prime resource representing unconditionally free.
