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.

George One says:

Former President Mubarak. Putting an old and sick former president on trial is a disgrace to the country and to its real leaders since 1952 , ie, the Military establishment. President Mubarak is not a Khaddafi or an Assad. The man deserves to be allowed to live his last months or years in dignity.

George One says:

Pakistan Intelligence Agency. Their US lawyer’s stand is ridiculous and absurd. It amounts to saying “don’t punish criminals – let them get away with their crime – otherwise they will become even worse criminals”.
