• Prime Minister Netanyahu is considering the IDF’s withdrawal from the West Bank (though not the settlements’ evacuation) as one of several possible preemptive moves in advance of the Palestinians’ plan to seek statehood at the General Assembly in September. [Haaretz]

• The United States blocked British, French, and German plans to outline a final settlement plan and impose it on the peace process via the Quartet. [AP/WP]

• Iran bragged of significant progress in its nuclear program—it is a month away from starting its first commercial reactor, it says—while at the same time sustaining a bomb attack on a gas pipeline, which it blamed on Western saboteurs. [WP/NYT]

• There are unusually high rates of eating disorders in America’s Orthodox community. [NYT]

• Israel is “arming” its soldiers with still and video cameras so that, during the next conflict, they can more effectively document their lack of war crimes. [AP/WP]

• Bieber touches down. [Ynet]

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.

The article on anorexia isn’t about it being more prevalent problem in the Orthodox community (in fact, the second sentence of the article explicitly states “While no one knows whether such disorders are more prevalent among Orthodox Jews than in society at large…”) but about it being somewhat surprising and the twist of how the seeking of a shidduch seems to be a cause (need to be really thin) and deterrent from seeking proper treatment.

Yaakov Hillel says:

Israel will never leave another inch. forget what you heard.Israel will eventually have to reconquer Gaza.
