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.

We can only hope.

“Sheikh Jarrah” (“Tribal Leader, Surgeon” – I guess that’s like “Rabbi Dr.”, except for the fact that when a dumb-as-sh!t Muslim talks about surgery she means things like placing leeches and balancing the four humors.).

Anyways, Shimon Hatzaddik is a Jewish neighborhood. It has been since it was developed in the late 19th Century. Briefly, when the Muslims formalized their irrevocable alliance with the Nazis and Haj Amin al-Husseiny ethnically cleansed the neighborhood of its African-Jewish population it was subject to the satanic Shari’ah. But the Quranimals were defeated, and humanity has returned.

You know, the enemy always say: “How can a few hundred Jews live in Chevron or Gaza or Malmo, etc . . . .? There are so many Muslims? The Jews must be exterminated the pacify the Mohmmedans”

If that’s true, than Jerusalem is the same. How can these Mohammedans be expected to live in Jerusalem? Muslims in Sheikh Jarrah should be treated EXACTLY as kuffar are treated in Deerborn or Makkah or Malmo.
