Sundown: Who Leaked the Palestine Papers?
Plus another Marty Peretz profile, and more

• Ad copywriter Phyllis K. Robinson died at 89. She came up with the immortal slogan, “You don’t have to be Jewish to love Levy’s Real Jewish Rye.” [The Awl]
• The world asked for another profile of Marty Peretz in winter (and in Israel), and the call was answered. [NYT Magazine]
• An interesting take on the Palestine Papers from Matt Duss. [Wonk Room]
• Peru became the eighth South American country to recognize the state of Palestine along the 1967 borders. [Reuters/Haaretz]

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.
