It’s that time of the year again, my friends: nominations are hereby open for the notorious and hotly coveted Jihad Watch annual awards!

There will be, as always, four awards. First, the ones few people want but all too many people deserve:

1. American Dhimmi of the Year 2010.
2. Dhimmi Internationale of the Year 2010.

These should, of course, be awarded to those who behaved during the year 2009 in the most spineless, shameless, abject, and/or suicidally, self-servingly stupid ways in the face of Islamic supremacist bullying and intimidation, peaceful and/or violent.

Then we will honor two heroes:

3. American Anti-Dhimmi of the Year 2010.
4. Anti-Dhimmi Internationale of the Year 2010.

Take a trip down memory lane. Scroll through the archives here going back to January 2010. Relive the good old days. And you’ll find many, many worthy candidates for both honor and dishonor. There are many worthies from earlier in the year who could be forgotten.

Please nominate individuals, not groups, entire nations, political parties, secret societies, blogs, etc. Please also do not nominate me or Marisol Seibold: Jihad Watch staff and relatives of staff are not eligible for either the Dhimmi or the Anti-Dhimmi prizes. We are not going to give ourselves our own awards!

Write your nominations in the comments field below. In a few days I will tally up the names most often nominated and put them on ballots for voting in each category.

The awards will be given at the lavish annual Jihad Watch banquet later this month or in January. I hope that this year we will be able to get another primo cartoon from the world’s premier anti-jihad caricaturist, David Washburn, commemorating the awards banquet.

For your reference, here is a list of the previous winners. You can read about the 2009 winners here, the 2008 winners here, the 2007 winners here, the 2006 winners here and the 2005 winners here.

These winners can be chosen again, but wouldn’t it be fun this year to honor people who have not already been honored?

2009:
American Dhimmi: Barack Obama! (Yes, yes, I know, but he says he’s not a Muslim, so that makes him a dhimmi)
Dhimmi Internationale: Gordon Brown
American Anti-Dhimmi: Rifqa Bary
Anti-Dhimmi Internationale: Geert Wilders

2008:
American Dhimmi: Jimmy Carter
Dhimmi Internationale: Rowan Williams
American Anti-Dhimmi: Mark Steyn (honorary American)
Anti-Dhimmi Internationale: Geert Wilders

2007:
American Dhimmi: Jimmy Carter
Dhimmi Internationale: Ken Livingstone and Ehud Olmert
American Anti-Dhimmi: Mark Steyn (honorary American)
Anti-Dhimmi Internationale: Ayaan Hirsi Ali

2006:
American Dhimmi: Jimmy Carter
Dhimmi Internationale: Jacques Chirac
American Anti-Dhimmi: John Bolton
Anti-Dhimmi Internationale: John Howard and Geert Wilders

2005:
American Dhimmi: Ramsey Clark
Dhimmi Internationale: George Galloway
American Anti-Dhimmi: Tom Tancredo
Anti-Dhimmi Internationale: Oriana Fallaci

People are campaigning to win Hasby Awards!

November 27, 2010 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

There have been hundreds of votes so far for the People’s Choice Hasby Awards, and the two front-runners are – almost suspiciously – European.

It appears that two sites,  drzz.info and Europe-Israel, have been asking their members to vote for the Museum of Modern Art protest they had organized.

There are a lot of votes also for Pilar Rahola’s essay, which didn’t make such big waves when it was first published. They might be coming from a Facebook campaign I have not yet found.

It’s great that the awards are getting international attention, even if they are skewing the results a bit. But I will certainly announce the Readers’ Choice awards along with the official Hasby Awards during my live appearance in New York on December 7!

Nominations now being taken for the 2010 Hasby Awards!

November 18, 2010 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 
The sponsors of my planned Hasbara 2.0 talk at Yeshiva University have been telling me that the turnout would be significantly higher if I speak on a weeknight, and if I go to the main YU campus rather than Stern College in midtown as I had hoped. Since my presentation is probably a one-time only deal, and I believe it is an important topic, I gave in. The new date is December 7, 2010 – “a date which will live in infamy” – at 8 PM, and I will shlep up to Washington Heights. 

The sacrifices I make …. :-)

My presentation will introduce the 2010 Hasby Awards. Nominations for the best specific examples of hasbara for the year should be placed in the comments or emailed to me, and I will decide the winners.  After all, the best way to teach what works in defending Israel is by going through and analyzing specific examples of what works, and why.

Anyway, without further ado – start nominating!

Epic FAIL Awards: the WaPo becomes a platform for the Obama deranged

November 14, 2010 · Posted in The Capitol · Comment 

So the Washington Post editorial team was sitting around thinking, who can we get to write an advice piece for the president? And so, they came up with a brilliant idea: why not get two Fox “News” analysts who double as self-hating Democrats and have them “advise” President Obama to quit after one term? Genius. […]

ILCA Conference Nov. 19 Features Awards, Social Media Panel

November 6, 2010 · Posted in The Capitol · Comment 

The nation’s labor press will come together in Washington, D.C., Nov. 19 to celebrate the best in their craft and to learn about new and better ways to deliver the union message at the International Labor Communications Association’s (ILCA’s) annual conference.

The Media Awards luncheon highlights the event, with keynote speaker Ed Ott, former executive director of the New York City Central Labor Council, set to discuss trends in nontraditional organizing drives and how theses techniques have been used successfully to help service workers win respect on the job.

During the luncheon, Jennifer Berkshire, a writer for the Massachusetts AFT Advocate, will receive the 2010 Max Steinbock Award, the highest honor given by the ILCA. In her story, We Wanted a Voice,”  she recounts the successful effort by teachers at Conservatory Lab Charter School in Brighton, Mass., to form a union.

American Federation of Musicians of the United States and Canada Local 802 newsletter Allegro will receive one of the three Saul Miller awards, named after the longtime director of the AFL-CIO publications department and ILCA vice president. Miller’s son, David, is a member of Local 802 and wrote the article about his father in the picture above. To read the entire article, click here and here for a list of all the award winners.

For more information, click here. To download a registration form for the luncheon and one-day conference, click here.

The morning session will feature a special panel on “Winning Campaigns with Social Media.” From countering attacks on teachers to building support for Mott’s strikers, social media provide new, experimental weapons for union campaigns. The panel will examine campaigns that use social media, discuss what worked and share  how your union  can effectively use YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and other tools in your communication strategy.

Carl Fillichio, senior adviser for communications to Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, also will speak, discussing the department’s plans in light of the Nov. 2 election results.
