SDEROT for Monopoly!



I admit that it wasn't my idea, but I think it's brilliant! Hat tip to Sharon.


Let's put Sderot in a place of honor!

Your Sderot idea was interested. I was waiting to see if anyone else would comment. No such luck, huh?

My son needed an Israel-related news item for his Ivrit class, so I helped him find an article about Monopoly and Jerusalem. I don't think he got it. Then again, I'm not sure I get it...is putting a lot of energy into influencing Hasbro's board meaningful? Or is it just a sign that we feel like we have to something to support Jerusalem? (or Sderot)

leora, thanks
I also posted it on my A7 blog, http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Blogs/Blog.aspx/6

It's important to not that Jerusalem and Sderot are not in competition. Jerusalem is already nominated and competing, while Sderot is in the first round as a "wildcard." If it makes it to the next round, it has a chance.

I think it's important for the world to know that an innocent Israeli city is being bombed by the "teflon terrorists," aka the Pseudistinians, also aka the Phakistininians.

Very true. Anyway, I nominated Sderot just now.

It's important to promote the idea.

I didn't see Sderot as a choice anywhere...

It's a wild card, and you start typing in sde, and it completes it and then follow the instructions.

I have nominated Sderot. As for Jerusalem, I voted for Jerusalem, but it is not listed there as being in Israel (US Consulate style), and the blurb on it mentions Jews, Christians and Muslims. A Jerusalem Arab could vote for that Just as well, or a Quaker foreign aid worker. Maybe we should stick with Sderot?

Jerusalem is our Capital City, so it deserves a vote regardless of the blurb, and you can vote everyday.
Sderot needs our votes; it's not in the top 20. It needs the publicity. Again, you can vote once a day.
