      Good Grief! The Aliens are Listening!

      Judging from the swarm of missionary talkbacks I received from my previous blog, scores of Christians are reading my stuff. Of course, I deleted them all. I have no intention of turning this column into a rag sheet for missionaries (it has unfortunately already become a pasting board for a motley lot of Israel bashers and other self-hating Jews).

      So once again, I am broadcasting the message loud and clear, this is a blog FOR JEWS ONLY. Christians, Buddhists, Snake Worshippers, and Voodoo Witch Doctors are invited to search elsewhere on the web for reading matter.

      As “Fiddler on the Roof’s” Tevye said: “May the L-rd bless the Czar and keep him – far away from us!”

      From their brainwashed responses, I realized how right I was – brothers and sisters, run for your lives. There is no reasoning with these people. No presentation of truth or intellectual persuasion can faze them. It is forbidden to talk with them about their heretical beliefs. Until hell freezes over, they won’t abandon their myths.  

      Let it be stated straight out – I have no intentions of teaching Torah to the goyim. Teaching Torah to the infidels, especially its secrets, is a big no-no that I want no part of.

      But there’s a real problem here. The Internet is open to everyone. Here I am writing to Jews, and my blog is swarmed with cyberspace aliens, just the way that flies are attracted to honey.

      I don’t know what to do! How can I continue knowing that Peter, Paul, and Mary are reading everything I write? How can I be intimate with my own mishpachah when strangers are ease dropping on everything I say? Gevalt!

      Who knows how many new porn sites they have posted, having discovered how lethal pornography is to Jews?!

      And I’m to blame!

      Good grief!

      This is a very serious question. I’m going to ask a rabbi. Of course, I already did in the beginning. But with the tsunami of talkbacks that I’ve been receiving over the last 48 hours, from Boston to Bangkok, what was a theoretical-virtual-digital-dilemma has become far more concrete.

      What would you do? Should I give up the blog? Or switch to writing in Hebrew? Or keep blasting away the truth of our Sages?

      At this moment, I don’t know what to tell you.
