Hi. My name is Eugene Gershin. I'd like to welcome you to Obadiah Shoher's blog, Samson Blinded: A Machiavellian Perspective on the Middle East Conflict.

Obadiah is a pen name of a politician. He writes extremely controversial articles about Israel, the Middle East politics, and terrorism.

Obadiah advocates political rationalism instead of moralizing. He is economic liberal and political conservative.

Google refused advertising our site and Amazon deleted reviews of Obadiah's book. Nevertheless, Obadiah’s is the largest Jewish personal blog, read by more than 100,000 people monthly. 210,000 people from 81 countries downloaded Obadiah’s book. The blog was voted the best overall in People’s Choice: Jewish and Israeli blogs Awards, received Webby Honoree and other awards.

Please help us spread Obadiah's message, and mention the blog in one of your posts, or link to us. We would greatly appreciate your comments at www.samsonblinded.org/blog

Best wishes,

Eugene Gershin

I love the blog that you have. I was wondering if you would link my blog to yours and in return I would do the same for your blog. If you want to, my site name is American Legends and the URL is:


If you want to do this just go to my blog and in one of the comments just write your blog name and the URL and I will add it to my site.

I'm sad you're moving the blog. I just found it, started reading it, and appreciated it.

Good luck in your future endeavors.

I really wish that people over here cared were a bit more aware of yom hasho'ah. I think it's shameful that we don't do anything to commemorate this day in the U.S.

This is something that I've always admired about Israel. It's done so that none will ever forget.

I really wish that we would do something like a moment of silence here in the US out of respect for the victims of 9/11.

Many kids over on this side of the Atlantic are forgetting what 9/11 was all about, which is sad.

Standing in the siren is automatic... and easy. What is harder is to really force yourself to think of it. In school we had activities for Yom Ha'Shoah. In workplaces we don't. In other countries you don't. It's not easy to reflect on the Holocaust for a whole day, though for many survivors it's impossible not to think of it every day. I feel what we do is so little... And when we talk about the Holocuast it is often to emphasize someone's political opinion... I am ashamed and angry so often about how we don't respect the memory of the Holocaust.

We were in the middle of a meeting at my office when the siren went off marking the beginning of the minute of silence. The person who had been giving a presentation stopped mid sentence and everyone stood with head bowed. I could see out the window and all around our compound people had stopped wherever the siren found them... in the middle of the courtyard... in a doorway... on the way to their cars.

What is almost as moving as the reason for the remembering is the completely un-selfconscious way in which all Israelis allow themselves to be taken away by the moment.
