• Khairat el-Shater, the Muslim Brotherhood’s recently disqualified presidential candidate, accused Egypt’s military leadership of being unwilling to cede real power. [WP]

• Israel’s Masorti movement (their version of Conservative Judaism) will ordain gays and lesbians as rabbis. [JTA]

• U.S. anti-Semitism envoy Hannah Rosenthal is meeting the anti-Semitic mayor of Malmö, Sweden, on his home turf. For more, read our story. [JTA/Forward]

• The Times’ Disunion blog, about the Civil War, does its Judah Benjamin capsule. [NYT Opinionator]

• Such an awesome article about how the NFL schedule gets made. Guy in charge is named Katz. [NYT]

• Rep. Eric Cantor did or didn’t admit that there is some anti-Jewish bias among the Republican House caucus, depending on whom you ask. I think the tape shows weird ambiguity that nonetheless isn’t enough to actually say he was saying that thing. Boy this election season’s gonna be fun. [ThinkProgress/Commentary Contentions]

Farewell, Levon.

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.

Well, he was asked that question directly and responded “No.”

So how is this legitimately equivocal?
