Interview with the ambassador, and more

The Editors
October 29, 2010

Today in Tablet Magazine, contributing editor David Samuels interviews Maen Rashid Areikat, the Palestinian ambassador to the United States, discussing the Jews’ historical presence in modern-day Israel; the refugee issue; prospects for peace; internecine rivalry between his group, Fatah, and Hamas; and much more. In his weekly parsha column, Liel Leibovitz compares how Abraham found his wife to how we find our mates in the Internet age. The Scroll would wish you a happy Halloween, but Halloween is for pagans, and so its wishes will have to wait for Purim (but have a happy Halloween).
