The Nectar of the Gods, or Franzia Fans Need Not Read On...

Before you get excited by the wintry allure of Ice Wine (or the intrigue of anything dubbed 'the nectar of the gods for that matter), collegienne is here to burst your bubble. While the rare wine, described as "intense - at once breathtakingly sweet and mouth-puckeringly tangy," does sound a hell of a lot better than Franzia, "the world's most popular wine" (remember, the world, collectively, can't afford to have such discerning tastes), ice wine certainly isn't as friendly to your ever-depleting debit card. This latest craze might be something to add to your "when-I-become-a-Managing-Director-I-will-finally-be-able-to-afford" list - some of the "elegant bottles" (read: slightly larger than a can of Natty Light) cost up to $100. I think it's safe to say we'll at be sticking to our gallon-size boxes and occasional splurges for that $7.99 bottle of Yellow Tail chardonnay.

Hi. My name is Eugene Gershin. I'd like to welcome you to Obadiah Shoher's blog, Samson Blinded: A Machiavellian Perspective on the Middle East Conflict.

Obadiah is a pen name of a politician. He writes extremely controversial articles about Israel, the Middle East politics, and terrorism.

Obadiah advocates political rationalism instead of moralizing. He is economic liberal and political conservative.

Google refused advertising our site and Amazon deleted reviews of Obadiah's book. Nevertheless, Obadiah’s is the largest Jewish personal blog, read by more than 100,000 people monthly. 210,000 people from 81 countries downloaded Obadiah’s book. The blog was voted the best overall in People’s Choice: Jewish and Israeli blogs Awards, received Webby Honoree and other awards.

Please help us spread Obadiah's message, and mention the blog in one of your posts, or link to us. We would greatly appreciate your comments at

Best wishes,
