• THE SIX COUNTRIES NEGOTIATING WITH IRAN offered the real possibility of new talks while demanding inspectors’ access to more nuclear sites, including the one at Parchin. [NYT]

• NEW SATELLITE IMAGES, ISRAEL ARGUES, of clean-up at an Iranian facility, further suggest the program is not peaceful. [AP/Haaretz]

• IS AN IRAN ATTACK UP TO PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU? Sort of. Eli Lake reports on the security cabinet Bibi is bound, at least, to consult. [The Daily Beast]

• WORRY, NOT PANIC, defines the bulk of the Israeli population in the midst of war talk. [NYT]

• AN ISRAELI SOLDIER WAS STABBED AND KILLED ONE. He was in the West Bank arresting a man, released as part of the Gilad Shalit swap, suspected of helping fund terrorism; he was stabbed in the neck while performing the arrest, and opened fire. [NYT]

The Forward PROFILES ALI ABUNIMAH, calling him “Rock Star of the Boycott Israel Movement.” The news is here is less what’s in the profile than the Forward’s decision to profile him. [Forward]

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.
