Nakba Day 2011 –> Third Intifada?

Quote of the Day

Obama has signaled that he will, for the time being, avoid issuing a detailed peace plan, at least until August. This means that Netanyahu has bought another three months in which he will be able to stick to the status quo without any substantive concessions.

The question is whether the security situation in the territories will remain calm, or whether the disturbances in Jerusalem this weekend suggest a broader confrontation, as the events of Nakba Day in May 2000 signaled the second intifada that September.

-Aluf Benn in Haaretz

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.

If you are left-winger in the ME you are not living in reality
