Nominees announced for Jewish and Israeli Blog Awards

Like pressing little buttons on your computer screen? Go over and vote for Muzzlewatch in Best Jewish Left Wing Political Blog and/or Best Jewish Anti-Establishment Blog categories, or vote for any of the other terrific blogs also nominated like JVoices, Jewschool, JSpot, Tikun Olam, Semitism.net and more. They all deserve a big, gold tiara as far as we’re concerned.
Like everything else we cover, there does seem to be a backstory about the JBloggies and progressive Jews.

A quick glance at last year’s list of categories and nominees makes clear why Richard Silverstein at Tikun Olam started a “crusade” against former incarnations of the awards. He said sponsorship by the Jerusalem Post, “skewed the competition toward a heavily partisan political agenda represented by that Likud-oriented publication.” Dr. Schamess over at Semitism agreed, saying “Last year they were organized by right-wing bloggers without even the pretense of including progressive voices.”
Mobius over at the nominated-for-almost-every-category Jewschool, says the real issue is that the Jewish right is over-represented in the blogosphere:

‘I get riled up because I have a hard time accepting that the Jewish community – which is primarily liberal and progressive – should appear to be so overrepresented by the religious right… The domination of the blogosphere by the Jewish right is a stain on our community and reflects poorly on us internally and externally.’

From what I’ve seen, they’re all right. The new organizers of the awards deserve kudos for working to make it a more even-handed contest, and folks like Mobius and Richard deserve thanks for their role in making that happen.
