Our next guest in the Hot Seat is a new blogger Why Palestinians Get It Wrong. New bloggers face an uphill fight to gain audience in a crowded marketplace. One of the reasons I do not write about Israel is that so many people do a much better job like our guest. Those with talent like our guest , MZ , Esther and Pam of Atlas Shrugged write about Israel. Those devoid of those talents do interviews and Mr Beamish themed comedy skits.
This blog started out as a comedy blog and only recently have we resumed the comedy.
I was attacked from the start by an arrogant bunch of anti semitic communists who just happen to be gay. My best friend in the blogosphere Warren and I kicked #%$ and it was a problem for months. However as soon as new friends Jason Pappas and Mr Beamish showed up the commies fled. Liberterians scare the hell out of commies , so always remember to have a few Liberterians freinds handy.
The best way to build an audience is to join a community of Bloggers. Our little family has grown into a decent sized group. Hopefully, you will visit some of their blogs and visa versa. This is a good way to promote your blog and introduce yourself.
In the prehistoric days we had a segment called the electronic bar where we would introduce bloggers to each other. One blogger Always on the Watch has grown huge and her recipie of high quality posts with wit and charm is one for all to emulate. I am
thinking of renaming this segment the Electronic Bar.
1 I have read some of your responses and the level of venom surprised me. I am used to venomous anti semitism and have dealt with it on this blog . Were you surprised at some of the nasty over the top comments ?
2 Do you read the blogs of some of the more nasty commenters ? I have read some dreadful blogs but the worst was one call Jedi Master B^&^ch from Canada. That blog
was a written by a Commie Star Wars fan. Warren and I visited that blog and just shook our heads. Have you read the blog of Janice ? It is the most incomprehensible blog I have ever seen.
3 What stategy did you use to raise the visability of your blog ?
4 Is your goal to have a steady readership, active comment board or something else ?
Zionism and other ism
5 Do you find it odd that genuine Communists and Anarchists have tried to turn Zionism, Nationalism and Patriotism into dirty words ?
6 Have you found that Anti semitism is mostly on the far left ?
7 My experience is that Jewish opponents of zionism are mostly Communist and anarchists ?
8 I have talked about the paradox of Islam. Islam encourages terrorism and violence
the violence causes investors not to create jobs. The lack of jobs breeds more terrorism and some emmigration . Why is there a lack of economic development in Muslim countries. I seldom pick up something that reads made in Syria or Algeria.
Is there an economic component to the conflict with Islam ?
9 Will you devote some future posts to the treatment of minorities under Islam ? I did a post about the government sponsored abuse and harassment of Homosexuals by the PA.
10 Is the conflict in Israel part of a much larger conflict ? Islam is the overwhelming common denominator in the worlds religious strife.
11 What is Pan Arabism and who were its proponents ?
12 Are Palestians Arabs ? The PLO charter has the words Palestinian Arab and Arab unity all over the place.
13 I look at doccuments from all over the world for a living how do two Egyptians in Gaza have a child with a Palestinian ID card born in the same city. I have also looked at people born in Nabulus whose papers read Jordanian but whose kids are born in the same city and are called Palestinian ? Is this an example of bait and switch
and the big lie ?
14 What constitutes this alleged ethnicity Palestinians speak Arabic, have the same history , religious affliations as Arabs in adjacent land. I can make a better case for a Nation of Brooklyn, Arkanstan or a Comanche nation then that of the Palestinians.
15 When did Islam and Arabs first arrive in Israel ? How much later did they arrive then the Jewish people ?
16 Jews seem to come in all races so the Zionism is racism game is a fraud ? Has the left crated new terms where it is convenient ?
17 Do other nations have a security fence for protection ? Do note Communist countries required fences to keep people from fleeing ?
18 How are gays treated by the PA ? Is being Gay in the PA a sure way to become DOA ?
19 If conditions are so bad in Israel why don't Israeli Arabs leave ?
20 Who are your favorite authors ? Have you read Bat Yeor ?
21 Name your favorite movies ?
22 Have you ever shot pool or played ping pong
23 Do you have a favorite painter
24 Who would you like to see be the next president ?
25 Do people on the far left seem to be in a perpetual temper tantrum ?
Bonus Do you have any questions you would like to ask our more experienced bloggers ?
Postscript our friend Kurt of Kajando is active again . Those of you who have been to his site remember his excellent post and great humor.
