• David Ignatius reports/sends the message that U.S. officials worry Israel will attack Iran in the next six months, before the nuclear program develops enough enriched uranium to enter a “zone of immunity,” where it could develop a weapon whenever. [WP]

• The U.N. Security Council is getting closer to a resolution that would outline a plan for Syrian regime change, but any authorization of force, either now or in the future, seems unlikely. [FP Turtle Bay]

• Jackson Diehl outlines the vast repercussions the Syrian crisis is having across the region. [WP]

• Iran may have freed as many as five al-Qaida operatives from jails recently. [WSJ]

• Rabbi Menachem Youlus, the Maryland-based Torah-saving “Jewish Indiana Jones,” admitted in court that he is a fraud. [NYT]

• How wrong and stupid and offensive is this video of prominent pastor Eddie Long? A fellow Christian clergywoman helpfully counts the ways. [Huff Post]

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.
