Daybreak: Clinton Pushes Peace Process

Plus Britain wants to skirt a part of the Iran embargo, and more in the news

• On a phone call, Secretary of State Clinton implored Prime Minister Netanyahu to use his new, massive coalition to make a real push on the peace process. [Haaretz]

• Apparently under pressure of maritime insurers, most of which are based there, Britain is pushing for an exemption to the EU’s impending oil embargo whereby insurers could still back ships containing Iranian oil (and bound for, say, China). Remember the good old days, when an embargo was actually an embargo? [NYT]

• In the second part of its big investigation, the Times finds the Brooklyn district attorney is especially lenient when it comes to allegations of sexual abuse from Hasidic communities. [NYT]

• The Israeli cabinet complained that a Supreme Court ruling to dismantle the Ulpana neighborhood in the Beit El settlement made the issue prohibitively difficult to resolve. Well, not if you just follow the court’s order. [Haaretz]

• Hamas’ prime minister in Gaza, Ismail Haniyeh, said his group would not retaliate against Israel if Israel attacked Iran’s nuclear facilities. [Reuters]

• Yet the Pakistani journalist Ahmed Rashid argues that retaliation would come, in the form of Shia groups spread throughout the region that might target Israeli, U.S., or Western targets in their own countries. [Haaretz]

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.
