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.

“Chutzpah, thy name is Ma’aleh Adumim”

Is that a joke?

The Western European and American Mohammedan community has no problem violently demanding appeasement from its neighbors. Try putting up a cartoon of the Islamic god on the front page of TabletMag and watch how quickly the bloodthirsty American Muslim community will riot, rape and ritual slaughter in protest. Just ask the creators of South Park.

CAIR, ISNA, Rev. Wright’s cult, etc . . . demand we “RESPECT IT” (the death cult of Mohammed) and nobody bats an eye.

What goes around, comes around. Why shouldn’t the ‘Palestinians’ be as respectful to THEIR new neighbors, as the kuffar are to theirs? If anything, the subhuman Muslims should have a BETTER understanding of how tolerant you need to be toward immigrants.

The Islamic call to prayer – the ugliest sound on earth* – refers to the rapist, pedophile and genocidal war criminal who is the focus of the death cult as “Rassul’Allah” (“Mohammed is G-d incarnate”).

That polytheist declaration is very offensive to Jews and monotheists. We ARE tolerant of the enemy who seek nothing more than to worhsip Mohammed and impose the satanic teachings of the Quran. But surely tolerance runs both ways.

Isn’t it reasonable to ask the bloodthirsty Muslims of Judea and Samaria to show as much tolerance as American showed toward the bloodthirsty Muslims in the decade after 9/11?

Its not “Chutzpah” to demand the Mohammedan death cultists act human.

* although don’t tell that to our “Christian” president, who said it was the most beautiful sound he has ever heard.

Barry says:

And for Allah’s sakes – stop infantilizing the bloodthirsty Muslims.

“LOL – asking the Muslims to act respectfully toward their neighbors!? What a crazy idea?! lulz”

Is that really what you think?

Its not “Chutzpah” to ask the death cultists to show some respect for their neighbors. You remind of that stupid liberal woman in the UK who imported a Muslim groom, as if he were an exotic pet.

The “Palestinians” are not animals. They are humans who have chosen to act wickedly, in accordance with the Shari’ah. They can CHOOSE to abandon the Shari’ah. Its not “Chutzpah” to ask them to choose to act respectfully.

The Ummah – and the bloodthirsty American Muslim community in particular – are a fascistic, genocidal, war-mongering death cult. Start discussing them as if they were human, and not exotic pets.
