AIPAC in Jerusalem

The view from our window

Print Email
(The author)

The AIPAC Policy Conference actually takes place at the new Washington Convention Center (locals know the old one used to be nearby on New York Avenue), a little bit north of downtown and Chinatown. But the view from a window on the second floor, looking northeast, makes it look like we’re in an entirely different country! I mean, doesn’t that look familiar?

COMMENTING CHARGES
Daily rate: $2
Monthly rate: $18
Yearly rate: $180

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
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.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at letters@tabletmag.com. 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.

“Israel must be master of its own fate” translates unsurprisingly to master of all of Jerusalem and what scraps of Arab inhabited land remain on the West Bank of the Jordan. In other words the process of ethnic cleansing of Arabs will go on unabated.

Jules, give it a rest….
