As usual, we were quoted in a number of media outlets, like Algemeiner, Arutz-7, Breitbart, Jerusalem Post and The Tower. But let's look at some of the more important posts.
In October, a photo went viral on anti-Israel media showing a Jewish man screaming at an Arab woman. We showed the reason he was screaming - she had stolen his book of Psalms, and we showed the video of the event. (So far, our edit of the video has over 140,000 views.)
This quarter I spent a lot of time - 43 posts! - on showing, conclusively, that UNRWA teachers are teaching antisemitism and hate. UNRWA, while not officially acknowledging my posts, has been working overtime to hide the evidence I found. Moreover, I showed how UNRWA teachers were supporting terror and denying (or supporting) the Holocaust on social media and how UNRWA's major arguments against its critics were filled with falsehoods. The information is bubbling up to the mainstream, slower than I like but it is happening, and I am told that not only is my research being discussed at the highest levels of UNRWA but it is also making an impact with funders.
I also discussed how the history of a simple stamp says volumes about Palestinian nationalism, or the lack thereof.
I debunked a claim in two news outlets (The Daily Beast and the International Business Times) that the IDF sexually abused children. Tellingly, neither of them bothered to correct the false story.
I proved lies and deceptions in The New York Times a few times.
I proved Amnesty International's anti-Israel (and pro-Hamas) bias.
I was part of a group that showed that a "journalist" killed in Gaza was a terrorist, causing UNESCO to remove its tribute to him.
I revealed, over and over again, systematic antisemitism in the Arab world as well as Iran.
While Haaretz published countless pieces about how awful the draft "Jewish State" law was, I actually published the text so people can make up their own minds.
I showed that a B'Tselem "human rights" volunteer has a problem with Jews.
And this is only a small percentage of the things covered this quarter. My general rule is that if you don't learn something new from every one of my posts, I have failed.
I now have over 12,400 Twitter followers and over 3000 Facebook "Likes."
I am not the only person blogging at EoZ, though.
Mike Lumish has a nice fan base willing to get into long discussions on his thoughtful Sunday columns.
PreOccupied Territory's humor columns are often confused with reality. It is a hard job to satirize the Middle East when the truth is so utterly crazy.
And Ian does an incredible job with his twice daily linkdumps, never missing any important story and making my life difficult as I try to find original items to blog that he hadn't already covered.
All of this takes up a lot of time and money.
