Prime Minister Netanyahu and his wife, Sara, yesterday evening.(Ynet)

• President Obama’s AIPAC speech yesterday appeared to sate the Netanyahu government (and the prime minister himself took a nice walk along the Potomac with his wife). [WP]

• Meanwhile, also in response to the speeches, President Abbas doubled down on his new alliance with Hamas. [Ynet]

• The Golan Heights, from the perspective of its 20,000 or so Druze inhabitants. [NYT]

• A profile of top administration adviser Dennis Ross, generally seen as Israel’s best friend in the White House. [NYT]

• Roger Cohen stands by Obama. [NYT]

• For the second time this month, masked men shot and killed a suspected Israeli collaborator in the West Bank—generally a rarity under the Abbas/Fayyad regime. [Reuters/Vos Iz Neias?]

COMMENTING CHARGES
Daily rate: $2
Monthly rate: $18
Yearly rate: $180

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
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.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at letters@tabletmag.com. 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.
