• Russia has expelled an Israeli military assistant for being a spy, which Israel denies. [AP/WP]

• Egypt arrested more than 100 protesters outside the Israeli Embassy in Cairo. [The Lede]

• Lars Von Trier: First a “Jew,” now a “Nazi,” always a jackass. [Roger Ebert’s Journal]

• Maureen Dowd on DSK. Much of this is good and funny, though comparing him to Wolfowitz is kind of despicable. Anyway. [NYT]

• Right-wing parties are on the rise throughout Europe. [Guardian]

• AIPAC sez: Don’t boo the prez. What if you want to say “Boo-urns”? [Ben Smith]

Every time people tell me they don’t like Israel I just want to tell them about how Israel saves cute kangaroos’ lives.

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.

…evidently AIPAC sends out a memo every year to attendees to treat guest speakers civilly.
