Zionist bloggers, come to Israel to meet fellow Jews and learn how to spread the word about…Humus?
What do Humus101, The Big Felafel, and Mommy’s Going Meshugganah have in common? They’re all blogs which concern Jewish issues such as being a tourist in Israel and how to deal with a Jewish in-law.
Creators of these blogs will arrive in Israel next week for the Jewish Bloggers convention, to be held in Jerusalem.
“The blogosphere is currently undergoing an unprecedented boom in the Jewish world. It’s virtually a new Jewish language,” said Danny Oberman, Executive VP of Israel Operations in Nefesh B’Nefesh who organized the event.
“New and original blogs on Jewish themes are popping up on the net daily. Each of those bears great influence on the current public discourse in the Jewish world.”
Let’s not forget that Nefesh B’Nefesh is the organisation bringing American Jews to settle in the occupied West Bank.
But the above article ends with the predictable kicker:
The conference will host officials from the Prime Minister’s Office and the Ministry of Information who will attempt to recruit the bloggers for these goals.
In other words, who wants to shill for the glorious nation of Israel to sell the occupation?
