In direct contravention of my wife's explicit instructions, herewith I inaugurate my first blog. Long may it prosper.

For some reason, I think I have something to say to you. You think you have something to say to me? Email me at: gideonsblogger -at- yahoo -dot- com

Another item from Ha'aretz, an opinion piece on Effie Eitam. As one would expect, it's hysterical. But is it wrong? The kinds of horrible sentiments they attribute to Eitam are far from rare in the national religious camp. I think it's worth emphasizing that he has not a prayer of becoming Prime Minister. But a significant portion of the religious right in Israel has been infected with ideas that are un-Jewish and, indeed, have most in common with Christian Identity types. The rabbinate has to do more to fight this.
