Welcome back to Haveil Havalim and many thanks to Jack for keepingn Haveil Havalim going!
One aspect of blogging is bringing like-minded people together.
The Israel Situation does just that with The Kehila: The Jewish/Israel Blogger Community | The Israel Situation posted at The Israel Situation, saying, "Welcome to the Kehila! If you have an Israel or Jewish themed blog, please take a look and join our community!"
I haven't linked to previous editions in a while, so I'll let Lady Light do it. Also she links to an important project called "the Other Side" devoted to humanizing Jewish residents of Yehuda and Shomron.
When the internet was new there was a fellow named Jacob Richman who made the effort to compile lists of jobs available in Israel in order to ease the efforts of those planning Aliyah. I'm glad to see that he's blogging and promoting Israel still! Here's more about Shai Agassi.
One of the other ongoing Jewish blogging carnivals is JPIX. So if you're Jewish and you take pictures: read up!
Very enjoyable too!

How's that outreach to the Muslim world going, Mr. President?
Amid opposition by certain groups in the US to the building of a mosque at the so-called Ground Zero in New York at the site of the highly suspicious 9/11/2001 incidents, President Barack Obama on Friday made a politically motivated move by claiming to respect the rights of Muslims in the US including the Cordoba Mosque Project.And this was evidently written before Obama backtracked. Did I mention that Rite-Aid has been having two for one specials on bottles of Ibuprofen lately?

Is it really so surprising that President Obama would do the same thing that candidate Obama did back in 2008?
There really is no reason to be surprised--in both cases Obama was speaking to a partisan group and just said what they wanted to hear. That is why that video the LA Times is suppressing of his speaking at a banquet in honor of Rashid Khalidi would be interesting.
Of course, there is one reason we can thank Obama for his comments about the mosque--it's not just a New York issue anymore, as the Mosque controversy swirls around Obama:
That of course is a good thing--unless you happen to be a Democrat up for reelection. As the Politico article notes, now every Republican can ask his Democratic opponent point blank if they agree with Obama's support for the mosque or not.
One point that is missed by Obama and those who are defending both his statement and the Ground Zero Mosque in general--the claim that this issue is all about the rights of Muslims is a subterfuge. John Hinderaker of Powerline writes:
Over time, we will now doubt see that straw is in no way in short supply.
