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.

Here’s a question I’d love to know the answer to: having already used up my alloted twenty free New York Times articles, I was still given access to Roger Cohen’s anti-Israel hate-piece in today’s online edition. Why? I’ve been barred from reading other opinion pieces designated subscriber only.

The only conceivable answer is that Times editors know that his despicable broadside against Israel will generate controversy and, hence, readership, a prize for which Arthur Sulzberger will pay any price, including the indulgence of antisemitism.

That Roger Cohen can actually equate Hamas with Israel demonstrates just how deranged he’s become.

Bill Pearlman says:

Interesting fw. I’d like to know that myself. The NY Times doesn’t even make a pretense of neutrality any more when it comes to Israel.
