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

Arutz Sheva reports on the Satmar condemnation of the Neturei Karta activists who showed up at the anti-Israel rally in Washington earlier this month. The Satmar are the most anti-Zionist Hareidi group out there. The Neturei Karta are a splinter group reviled even by them. But reporters have no idea about any of this, and happily snapped hundreds of pictures of hassidic Jews arm-in-arm with pro-PLO activists, thus convincing the world that there is genuine disagreement among traditional Jews about the nature of the enemy in this conflict.

Of course, I guess on the whole this could be a good thing, since if observers are inclined to favor the other side anyhow, at least they will think that some traditional Jews are not children of Satan. Nah, not worth it.
