Lightning Strikes Cosmic X

A funny thing happened to me, or should I say to my blog, yesterday. Yahoo News linked to this post (who knows why?) and the result was much more traffic than I usually get in one day: over 1000 page views.

There are over twenty comments there as of this time. Those leaving comments included a knuckle-dragging Nazi ("you people deserved what hitler gave you in ww2"), the typically misinformed consumer of the MSM ("decades of Palestinian suffering, malnutrition, and bullying by Israel"), the banal ("Anti-Semitic? How is supporting Palestinian people against oppressing anti-Semitic? Arab people like Jews are Semitic people"), someone who is distressed that I am not a lunatic (I find it distressing that there is an actual blog that thinks there should be no two-state solution"), a guy that creates God in his own image ("Lunacy is thinking that god promised land to JEWS.. This would make god a racist"), a thief that wants to steal the land of Israel from the Jews and give it to Arabs ("Lunacy is stealing arab land"), and some supporters as well.

I particularly liked what this guy wrote:
In keeping with "fighting on the 'net is akin to Special Olympics - even if you win you are still "challenged"...

Here also wrote:
Solution? I don't have one. Neither does O'Bama. But blaming the Jews, who have suffered enough for 2000 years, ain't going nowhere except for the folks on her who spell phonetically.

Thanks to everybody that left a comment, including the knuckle-dragging Nazi. It's important that the world see your true colors.

Quiet has returned to this corner of the blogosphere since the link disappeared from Yahoo News. I wonder: can lightning strike twice in the same place?

Ha'aretz Reaches a New Low

Just when you thought that they couldn't sink any lower. Check out

They even have a "pledge" which is total lunacy:
Dear President Obama,

Please know that I share your sense of urgency to bring peace to the Middle East.

Therefore, I pledge:

* to back your committed and persistent leadership in support of a negotiated two-state solution

* to work within my communities to build the political will that will enable you to take decisive and bold steps -- and to urge Congress to support you in this endeavor

* to make it known that an American President who dedicates himself to establishing a durable Israeli-Palestinian peace acts in the best interests of Israelis, Palestinians, the United States and our allies

* to support you in staying the course through difficult times and to celebrate your successes

In Hebrew, the words for wind and for spirit are one and the same -- ruach. As you work for peace, I promise that the ruach of the American Jewish people and our friends in the pro-Israel community will be at your back.
It's a shame to see that these people are supporting someone who openly speaks falsehood and has adopted the Arab narrative with regards to the Middle East. It's funny to see how agenda driven Ha'aretz has become.

Israelis Smell a Rat and His Name is Obama

8 Elul 5769

Jpost reports:
The number of Israelis who see US President Barack Obama's policies as pro-Israel has fallen to four percent, according to a Smith Research poll taken this week on behalf of The Jerusalem Post.

Fifty-one percent of Jewish Israelis consider Obama's administration more pro-Palestinian than pro-Israel, according to the survey, while 35% consider it neutral and 10% declined to express an opinion. The poll of 500 people representing a statistical model of the Jewish Israeli population had a margin of error of 4.5%.

A much-cited Post poll published on June 19 that put the first figure at 6% had been cited by top officials in both the White House and the Prime Minister's Office as the catalyst for recent American efforts to improve the American-Israeli relationship. But the new poll proves that those efforts have not improved Obama's reputation among Israelis.

Who are those four percent?

Jews are not Zionists and Zionists are not Jews

Of course this is nonsense! I saw this in Meah Shearim:

I wish that I knew Yiddish

I do know a bit, and sometimes I can understand what people are saying. Yitz learned Yiddish and he tells us how he learned it here.

Poll: Only 12 percent of Israelis believe Obama supports Israel

The radical left wing newspaper Ha'aretz reports:
Only 12 percent of Israelis believe U.S. President Barack Obama's policies are supportive of Israel, according to a poll released on Thursday.

The poll was conducted jointly by the Ramallah-based Palestinian Center for Police and Survey Research and the Harry S. Truman Research Institute for the Advancement of Peace at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. It was conducted between August 9 and 15.
I wonder who those 12% are.

Cosmic X in the New York Times

I still get a kick when the New York Times links to my humble blog, even if the link was created in a random computerized fashion:

Frum Satire has it!

Crazy Graffiti

Translation: One who thinks that he is not crazy is super crazy.

For the record, I don't agree with the guy. I am also against graffiti.
