Introducing Zion Mike

Zionmike4When Aussie Dave first asked me to blog for Israellycool, a blog that I have read and admired probably since its inception, I politely declined. The reason being, I consider myself a relatively provincial blogger. I use my own blog, The Mike Report, to pontificate semi-coherently on issues related to the crossroads of Seattle and Israel. This may seem like an odd juxtaposition, but the Pacific Northwest has become the center of Israel-obsessed hatred in North America. Unfortunately there is much to blog about in that regard.

But Aussie Dave is persistent, so here I am.

I was directed to share a little bit about myself.  OK, I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, born and bred. I have had some slight detours. A year in Israel after high school (too many years ago) where I learned at Yeshivat Bet-El, a life changing experience to be sure.  I spent another ten years in Brooklyn (its near New York) working for a major social service agency. I am married, with four beautiful children, to be more precise two can no longer be considered children.

In any case, aside from my faith, my family and napping, my passion is for all things Israel.

About Zion Mike

A semi hard working family man with wife and four kids, Zion Mike's primary goal is getting a good nap. Living in the center of demented anti-Israel wackiness known as the Pacific Northwest has compelled Michael to blog here and at The Mike Report. He is consistently surprised when people take notice.

    Welcome, Zion Mike. It’s important to fight anti-Semitism no matter where it raises its ugly head, but what I really want to know is the sky really the bluest blue and the hills the greenest green in Seattle? These claims seem kind of far-fectched to me.
