• The International Atomic Energy Agency and Iran are warily considering the former visiting the latter. [Reuters/Haaretz]

• According to the comptroller, Israel lacks the sufficient number of bomb shelters and is generally unprepared for war on the civilian front. [NYT]

• The value of Iranian currency has been in free fall over the past few days due to uncertainty and fears of sanctions. [AP/WP]

• Due to Israeli efforts, the Jordan River may once again flow rather than just quietly babble. [AP/WP]

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.

You mean the same UN who hasn’t said a word about the thousands of African refugees killed by Egyptians while trying to cross over into Israel? Or about the thousands of innocent Afghans killed by NATO forces?
