• Apparently at the request of Zuccotti Park’s private owner, police cleared the Lower Manhattan occupation last night, resulting in dozens of arrests and a suddenly rudderless movement. [NYT]

• Rep. Gabrielle Giffords appeared for an ABC News interview last night and is recovering remarkably. [Huff Post]

• Jordan’s King Abdullah is the first Arab leader to state publicly what many privately believe: that it’s time for Syria’s President Assad to go. [WSJ]

• The son of a conservative Iranian politician with alleged ties to the 1994 Jewish Community Center bombing in Buenos Aires was found dead in a Dubai hotel room. It was nominally suicide; some are suspicious. Oh boy. [LAT]

• French President Nicolas Sarkozy sent Prime Minister Netanyahu a letter pledging friendship after he was caught on a hot mic saying that Bibi is a “liar.” [JTA]

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.


Your comment may be no longer than 2,000 characters, approximately 400 words. HTML tags are not permitted, nor are more than two URLs per comment. We reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments.
