Other interesting posts:
- SIW has a very well-written letter regarding the Kolko arrest from a member of JSafe. Excerpt:I applaud those “anonymous bloggers” who brought this issue public and kept it in the public eye. Without them, this arrest would not have happened. They too have been subject to attack recently. I have already written about the problems of anonymous blogging (”Are Blogs Kosher? The Jewish Week 05/25/2006)–”Can these blogs be more responsible? Yes, and they need to exercise much greater care in upholding standards of decency, fairness and justice because they, too, can be responsible for harming innocents. And Web surfers should not necessarily believe what they read on them…But the blogs are here and, for now, supply a valuable service.
- DaveBender points us to this fascinating WSJ piece on Jewish DNA.
- (via MoC) BenChorin has a cute story about the dedication of Israeli teens to their country.
