Watcher's Council Results, 02/13/09

The Council has spoken! A complete rundown of the voting tallies is here.

The winning entry in the Council category this week was my entry at Joshuapundit for “60 Minutes” Libels Jews And Israel, my examination of a particularly horrendous example of how the media distorts and manipulates news on the Middle East and particularly when it comes to Israel. Thanks gang!

In second place we had a tie between two especially worthy pieces, Cheat-Seeking Missiles with Fair Treatment of Prisoners, an excellent look at the issues behind the controversy of what to do with jihadis taken captive on the battlefield and the hypocrisy of the Left on this issue and Mere Rhetoric - Austrian Jews Too Terrified To List Their Children As Jewish (Plus: Europe Reaches An Anti-Jewish Tipping Point) - Omri's examination of the worsening climate fo rJews in Europe.

Also getting votes were The Razor with Spending Bill: $200,000 per job , The Provocateur with ACORN and Alinsky Rule #13 , and The Glittering Eye for Why What, When, and How Matters in a Stimulus Package.

In the Non-Council category, the winner was Chesler Chronicles at Pajamas Media - Conventional versus Non-Conventional Warfare and Why Israel Did Not Lose in Gaza.

In second place, we had a tie between a piece by Randall Hoven in American Thinker, Change: The First Three Weeks and Nat Hentoff at the Cato Institute for The Cost Of Criticizing Jihadists .

As always, congratulations not only to the winners but to all the participants.
