Excellent job! I may not sleep tonight with all these links to follow... but still, strong work all around.

Batya said...

Thanks for the hard work.

SuperRaizy said...

Thanks for the link!
Like Mordechai said- You never know where help will come from for the Jewish people (or something like that).

Lady-Light said...

I am honored, and SHOCKED. I never even submitted a post to this Havel Haveilim, having suffered dejection from a rejection (also a poet) for a previously submitted post not used.

Thanks for including my guest post on Dovbear. Nice to know you felt it was worthy of a link.

Thanks for the link. Perhaps "retiring" to bed might be considered "Jewish" and you might consider getting some sleep.

Jack Steiner said...

Thank you all for your kind words and participation.

LEL said...

There's no way Jews should support obama. Whoever believes that ought to be ashamed of themselves, its disgraceful. This malcontent is connected with the nation of islam, who he has as staffers, not to mention his anti-Israel advisors, amongs so many other things. What is this person thinking?

Re "Sammy offered Clinton's Church Publishes Anti-Israel Books and The State Department "Ain't Got No Class""

Hillary's Church is also Bush's Church. They are one and the same. George W. Bush and Hillary Clinton are both methodists.
So how is tghe United Methodist Church just "Hillary's Church" when it is also the Church of our sitting President? WHere is his response?
If obama has to answer for wright, then surely bush should have to answer for his church as they are calling on hillary for? no?

Almost 20 years

Next week marks the 20th anniversary of the launch of this spot. Hard to believe, not many have kept going since then. I have barely kept up...
