Calling it like it is.

What better way to start off Tisha B'Av, then to be threatened with a law suit by the Wonkette blogger?

Personal friend of the Muqata, Yisrael Medad, wrote the following on his blog, "My Right Word"
"Wonkette" Antisemitic?
Wonkette, that foul-mouthed but titilating blogger of Washington foibles, seems to have gone anti-semitic. Editor Alex Pareene and Interns Nick Mueller and Lauren Spohrer may be responsible for this post which refers to someone they call "Rudy-Jew-liani " who gave an interview to the "Jew York Times".
He received the following in return:
You know, it's kind of poor manners to go accusing people of being antisemitic based on nothing more than you being too lazy to read the site and know any of the references.

But since you don't, and since you so thoughtlessly and wantonly libel our editors and the owners and stockholders of our company, I will direct you to the specific reference from the day before, which just happens to be a viral video on YouTube that everybody in politics is talking about:

http://wonkette.com/politics/jew_liani-dept%27/finally-a-campaign-ad-for-the-fascist-in-us-all-275420.php

You can go ahead and apologize on your site now. Send us the link when you do and I'll send that to our lawyers and that will be the end of that.
Read the rest of Yisrael's reply on his blog, here.

Orthomom: What do you think? Will Wonkette run for the school board in the 5 towns to complete with Pamela?

Free Speech, Tisha B'Av, Blogging...seems like a recipe for disaster.


Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael

Notice how this received 0 comments? Either possible antisemitism, or free speech infringement or just plain old me does not motivate people. Oh my.
