Happy One Year Blogaversary!

Dear JBlogosphere -- readers of The Muqata blog,

On the occasion of my one year Blogaversary, I just wanted to thank you - to toast you to a L'Chaim, To Life.




Little did I expect that within a timespan of a year I'd have over 56,748 visitors, over 94,500 page views, and a growing average readership of over 350 readers a day...

And for this -- I salute you! To those that link to my blog around the world, I thank you for helping promote the message of unconditional love for the Land of Israel.

(Thanks Mirty for the concept)


May the next year of my blog postings be those of good news -- for Jews in Eretz Yisrael and around the world.

May those who need a refuah shelaima be granted one

May we see the continued ingathering of the exiles from all four corners of the globe.

May Gilad ben Aviva Shalit, and the rest of the captured IDF soldiers be returned safely to their families. (ופדויי ה' ישובון ובאו ציון ברינה ושמחת עולם על ראשם (ישעיה ל"ה, י'

May Jonathan Pollard be released from prison.

May all those who have not yet found their bashert -- find them soon!

And I hope I can find a balance for my blog between the serious and lighter sides of life.

Here's to you dear readers -- L'chaim!

Jameel.
The Muqata.


PS: And a huge Yasher Koach to my wife, the Mrs. @ The Muqata for putting up with this blog hobby of mine. Love you!



Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael

Mazal Tov-

And may all of our Jewish neighbors that have been expelled from their homes, or are slated to be transferred in the future, be granted a reprieve from heaven, and may we all be allowed to live as a free nation in our Land, the Holy Land of Israel, in its entirety, with Jerusalem as our capital, may it be rebuilt speedily in our days...
