Watcher's Council Results, 8/11/06


The Council has spoken! Complete results can be found here on the site of our fearless leader, Watcher of Weasels

The winner for Council posts was Done With Mirrors: We Could Be Heroes Callimachus' killer piece on the nature of heroism, sparked by the new 9/11 film.

Second place was won by AbbaGav A few points that are not morally equivalent Here Abbagav examines the obscene nature of moral realtivism as he compares the IDF mentality to that of Hezbollah. First last week, second this week...told you this guy was good!


For non-Council posts the winner was One Cosmos: Israel Has No Right to Exist I hadn't run into the ruminations of Gagdad Bob before, but you can bet I'll check him out regalarly from now on..killer piece!


In second place we had a tie : The Shape of Days: A photojournalist weighs in on the Adnan Hajj scandal by Jeffrey Harrel

And Abu Aardvark: Islamist bandwagons - by author Mark Lynch about what he calls `the intra-Islamist politics of the Israel-Lebanon war.' Like your pal Freedom Fighter, he thinks that the fabled Sunni/Shia divide is vastly overstated and that jihad comes first.

Hearty kudos to all the winners!

SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR ISRAEL

YOU CAN HELP ISRAEL SURVIVE

A very reliable source reports that calls to the White House are running 2 to 1 against President Bush's strong support for Israel.

Where we would be without the unwavering support of George Bush? He gets it!!!

Please call the White House immediately at

(202) 456-1111

and thank the President for standing by Israel, in this her hour of need. He has been a voice of moral clarity in the wilderness. Without him, Israel would be totally isolated in the community of nations.

After you call, please forward this message to ALL of your friends and family

We use to have a Beer Company, Ballentine I believe that used that symbol. It went out of business, I am pretty sure this group will taking the same trip sometime soon.

It wasn't a very good beer either.

There is a Bible verse what a man asks should we go after this group and destroy it? The Rabbi tells the man if it is of G_d you will never stop it, if it NOT of G_d don't waste your time and effort it too will pass.
