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.

“Arab Spring”? LOL

Its just plain weird to describe Court Intrigue among the Mohammedans as an “Arab Spring”. You’re reading too much New York Times, I guess.

The Mohammedans are violently replacing one form of their shariah-compliant khaliph, with another. In Muslim-occupied Egypt, bloodthirsty mobs of Muslim rapists removed their President. Whoop dee doo.

So now the Mohammedans have a viciously anti-Copt war-mongering military dictatorship. What a great improvement. If the Jihadis ever do get around to their one-vote, one-time elections, they’ll just elect another khaliph for the next few decades. Again, this Mohammedan Court Intrigue is meaningless to human society.

Please, Tablet editors. Crack down on these inane, racist comments.

Howdy! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share. Thank you!
