Sundown: Young Jews, Many Still Support Israel

Plus the Jewish EGOTs, and more

Print Email

• New study shows that younger Jewish Americans have not been turning away from Israel—or at the least not until very recently (if they have at all). Some of the authors published an earlier essay about this in Tablet Magazine. [Rosner’s Domain]

• If you see Michael Bloomberg today, wish him a happy 70th. Wait, that means in a year he’ll be younger than when Reagan was elected the first time? Hrmm. [WSJ]

• At the Grammys, producer Scott Rudin became the 11th person to achieve the EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony), and the sixth Jew. Who will be the seventh? Jesse David Fox has the odds. [Jewcy]

• James Mee, the cop who arrested Mel Gibson, settled his discrimination suit against L.A. County. [6 Degrees No Bacon]

• Oliver Stone’s one-quarter Jewish son converted to Islam. In Iran. [FP]

• Fifteen-year-old Jeremy Lin though that Josh Howard “wears his headband jewish style.” [Deadspin]

Jay-Z and Kanye get mashed up with the Woodman. Watch the throne indeed.

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.

Jules is back again with his pro-Iranian propaganda.

I wonder who is paying him?

And this is another crock that Jules posted:

“Israel media publish, retract, then confirm calls for destruction of Al-Aqsa, “cleansing” of Israel’s “enemies””

Anti-Jewish Arabs have been making the claim that Jews want to destroy al Aksa since the early 20th century.

This must be their five hundredth’s claim or is it one thousandth?

Each time they make a claim they ask other Muslims to join them in anti-Jewish riots.

jacob arnon says:

So Oliver Stone’s son became a Shia Muslim. I wonder where he got the idea from?

Thanks for the spot of hasbara Jacob.

As always I relish with genuine pleasure your Islamophobia and your perfect right not to be informed by other sources.

Relish your racism to the deepest dregs.


Ronald Reagan was elected at the age of 69. Not 71.
