• Netanyahu accused Iran of carrying out the car bomb outside the Israeli embassy in New Delhi, India, that injured the wife of the Israeli defense ministry’s representative to India. In Georgia, a driver at the Israeli embassy noticed something attached to his car—a grenade that was then defused—which Netanyahu also publicly blamed on Iran. Both incidents occurred the day after the fourth anniversary of the assassination of Hezbollah commander Imad Mughniyeh. [AP]

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.

Re Alan Gross: I wonder if the AP report will now really put his life at risk and Obama administration will be forced to back away from supporting him.

MethanP says:

Iran has been prepairing more than 30 years for this. It’s just the beginning. It’s going to get bloody. As other attacks against Jews world wide has repeatedly shown (Argentina etc) few will care about a few Jews.
