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.

when it cames to Fatah (led by Abbas), it’s all about understanding where it comes from:
Fatah founder Yasser Arafat is the cousin of the Mufti of Jerusalem – Haj Amin el Husseini.
Arafat, like Saddam Hussein, took the teachings of Al – Husseini.
Haj Amin al-Husseini was a friend of Hitler and helped him with the “final solution” AKA the total annihilation of all Jews.

A very good clear cut answer and a terrific concept. But how do I post any work on this web site is one more question. The Foureyed Poet.
