11/6/08: So proud to be Jewish!!!

With Ibtisam (right) @ Wilmette Theatre + Rebecca Gordon on my left.

     The results are in & the answer is clear: despite overwhelming pressure from well-intentioned Republican activists & smear-meisters of darker intent, Jewish-Americans all across the USA embraced the candidacy of Barack Obama.  Meanwhile, here in Metro Chicago, a nice crowd turned out to greet Ibtisam Mara’ana at the Chicago Festival of Israeli Cinema.  I am so proud to be a Jew!

     Here’s the local word on Rahm Emanuel: “He can be a ‘mamzer,’ but he’s our mamzer.”  Dare we hope for real progress in the Middle East during the Obama Presidency?  Where there’s life, there’s hope!!!
