• Meanwhile it becomes clearer how he was persuaded. [JPost]

• The International Monetary Fund gave much coveted high scores to the Palestinian Authority on metrics of governance and corruption. [WSJ]

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.

Goldstone has actually further contributed to the deligitimazation. He has not only provided an oportunity for the UN and the members of his commission to repeat the blood libel but he has chosen to confirm its validity by refusing to have it revised.

When hs is in Israel he should be offered a home in Sdrot for him and his family!

goldstone should be prosecuted on criminal charges.
shimon peres begs obama to pressure israel into destroying itself
car bombed in sudan, by whom? only the shadow knows
I should have started a kabbala cult instead of becomming a blogger

Sex retailers of yesteryear have verified their popularity of currently being dismal and dirty. What with their frosted glass windows hiding a dim and smelly interior filled with a good deal of hardcore porn. The sleazy adult men going in were of a questionable track record. No female with a shred of self-respect would actually be caught in this sort of an establishment.

One of the things I’m thankful for is that I have such a well informed and articulate group of people, with whom I can discuss games and current events.

Thanks a ton for being the coach on this matter. My spouse and i enjoyed your article very much and most of all preferred how you really handled the aspect I considered to be controversial. You happen to be always rather kind towards readers really like me and assist me in my living. Thank you.
