    Just for the record, and as anyone who knows me already knows, I am a huge fan of Elder. More broadly, the great thing about this contest is that it is a competition among those who share the same values. We all love Israel and work everyday to defend the Jewish state from the relentless assaults on her very legitimacy. We are a community in every sense of the word, and I'm proud to be part of it.

      Right back atcha, Adam.

      CiFWatch rocks and is the most influential blog out there on the topic of anti-Israel media bias, and one that makes a real difference even outside the blogosphere.

      And that is the real goal – not to be an echo chamber but to bring our side of the story to the rest of the world, something that CiFWatch excels in. (Making reporters and editors at The Guardian squirm is just an added bonus!)

      This has been a fun round, and I want to thank Aussie Dave again for this great idea.

      • israellycool

        And thank you guys for embracing the contest and being such great sports.

        I hope whatever happens, you both get many, many new readers. You both deserve it.

    Though both of these are worthy, I've got to go with the Elder, if for no other reason than the influence of these posters on the world beyond the blogoshere – which is the ultimate goal of Hasbara.

    Too close to call. It's a win-win situation however :)

    Had to go with Elder, sorry CifWatch!

    For the UK, CifWatch is undoubtedly the best and most important pro-Israel blog – the Guardian goes places no other British paper will go, and the influence of CifWatch is integral in leading the UK battle against the lies against Israel – I hope you guys continue to do what you're doing, you don't need to change a thing, and hopefully you will get more and more recognition and success from it.

    But I chose Elder because of a couple of things. First, all the news stories that are only reported in the Arabic press, it really gives us a picture of what we're up against, and is a very important tool for getting our case across.
    Second, the posters. They are genius and have been used in rallies globally. Pictures are often much more powerful than words.

    I'm not sure what the reward is for the winner, but imo CifWatch and Elder are by far the two best pro-Israel blogs there are, so I hope both get the benefits from this competition.

    Cif Watch monitors the Guardian's anti Israel coverage?

    The Guardian is growing in popularity in the USA. It's the world's foremost opinion shaping media.
