• We have a bunch of Bashar Assad’s emails. Shockingly, Iran has been giving him tips on how to suppress Syria’s uprising. [Guardian]

• A Muslim Tunisian man in Paris set his daughter on fire for seeing a Jewish boy. [Heeb]

• /shakes head at Drake. [GQ]

• Federation’s William Daroff may have shocked Austin with his win in a Nokia-sponsored social media competition, but certainly denizens of Jewish Twitter were unsurprised. [Nokia]

• Anyone want to buy a totally awesome alternative newspaper? [Poynter]

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.

Arnon says:

Depardieu needs to lose some weight if he is going to play Strauss-Kahn.
