The nominees for Best Article are:
Will we ever be forgiven the Holocaust? (Howard Jacobson)
An Israeli Soldier to American Jews: Wake up! (Hen Mazzig)
And the winner is...
There were only three nominees for this category, but that didn't make the decision any easier. The Jaconson article is destined to be a classic and the Brendan O'Neill article is a must read.
In the end, I went with Hen Mazzig's article because it is the best example of hasbara in the classic sense: explaining things to readers they might not know about, heightened by the first person account of his experiences.
By the way, I wish I had thought of nominating this article, which is also about a peacenik getting slapped with reality. It probably wouldn't have won but it would have been a very good addition to the nominee list.
