I have been aware of the existence of PRIMER (Promoting Responsability in Mid-East Reporting) since my time in Tampa, Florida (One of its founders, the late Jack Roth, was a dear friend of mine), but was unaware until today that they had a website.

From the PRIMER Mission Statement:
Is a not-for-profit, non-partisan grass roots volunteer media watch group, established In 1992. Our purpose is to counter anti-Jewish and anti Israel written, visual and oral messages through media watch media response and dissemination of complete and accurate information.

Thier website has an archives of articles--including a transcript of Rabbi Joel Wasser's moving sermon from Rosh Hashannah 5763 regarding Daniel Pearl--and a page where you can sign up for thier e-mail action network.

Check them out. No, do more than that. Check them out and take action!


The background image on this page is a Hebrew translation of the verse from Bob Dylan's song  It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding), from which the title of this blog is taken. Translation courtesy of Yoram Aharon of Hod-HaSharon's page--found via YudelLine-- which has many Dylan lyrics in Hebrew.
