  • Elder of Ziyon
I just received an email from JCPA, the excellent Israeli think-tank, bragging about its Internet success:
Which Israel-Based Think-Tank Leads the Pack on the Internet?
After a decade of concentrated effort on the front lines of the Internet, the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs headed by former Israeli UN Ambassador Dore Gold leads the pack of Israel-based think tanks, according to data from, an independent website traffic ranking service owned by
 A comparison of 17 think tanks in July 2010 shows that the Jerusalem Center ranks much higher than better known and more lavishly funded institutions such as the Israel Democracy Institute, Tel Aviv University's Institute for National Security Studies, the Shalem Center, and the Peres Center (see table).

16Rabin Center6,365,319
17Jerusalem Institute for Israel Studies8,419,974

So I looked up my Alexa rank:


I am speechless.

I don't know whether to be proud that my ranking is so high, or upset that these professional think-tanks - with full time staff and salaries, filled with stellar content - cannot do better. 

Maybe, if they would hire me full time, I could make aliyah and increase their ranking!

(Just for context - newspapers and magazines do much, much better than my little blog, and these sites don't generally have daily news updates, but still....)

Elder of Ziyon - حـكـيـم صـهـيـون
This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 11 years and over 23,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
