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.

THERE IS MORE TO THE GOLDSTONE STORY THAN MEETS THE EYE….

Jed Brandt says:

Israel is appealing to the UN to stop a humanitarian mission to a country they are bombing and starving?

How about Israel remove every single one of the illegal settlements from the West Bank, respect the Geneva Conventions and allow Palestinian refugees to return to their lands?

Zionism shares with other ethno-nationalisms a complete disdain for the idea of universal human rights. By what right do they appeal to the UN for anything?

Boycott. Divestment. Sanctions. Secular democracy is good.
