About This Blog

(A copy of this post is located at http://forjerusalem.blogspot.com/2006/12/this-blog-has-now-been-closed.html)

This is the original Bnei Levi blog that became popular during the heyday of the Slifkin controversy. I deleted it because I felt that much of the content, even if it was not directed at specific individuals, can be used to demean, attack and otherwise bring more evil into the world.

After this blog was deleted, a certain Chabad Rabbi re-registered the blog in order to obtain higher rankings for his sites. He had been gracious enough to return the blog to me on the condition that at least some of his sites remain linked. Please note that I do not endorse any of his sites or their content, and the links from this blog to his sites are present merely as a condition of our agreement.

In the summer of 2006, I started a second blog called "For Jerusalem's Sake" which initially
focused on the Israeli Arab conflict. However, eventually that blog also strayed into forbidden territory including revealing Vicki Polin's real address and getting involved in the Kolko mess. Before things got any worse, I decided to pull the plug on this blog as well.

Blogging has been interesting, especially j-blogging. However, I have come to realize that it most cases it causes more harm than good. Some blogs, such
as Gil's, Cross Currents, and the wide variety of Torah blogs are pretty good. Everything else goes from so-so to almost evil in no time (even when they do accomplish some results like a certain arrest - the ends don't justify the means - UOJ could go straight to the police). Thus, I decided to quit the game.

In closing, I pray forgiveness and understanding from anyone who may have gotten hurt as the result of my writings.
