- The 2006 Shmendrik Awards
Shmendrik: (shmen- drik) n. (Yiddish) a pathetic and foolish small time ineffectual loser, a jerk.
Like the Worst-Dressed list or the Worst Movies awards, our awards highlight the activities of the losers among us.
Anti-Semitism does not grow naturally in free and democratic societies. It requires a great deal of fertilizer. The folks who spread the fertilizer around are providing nutrition for the evil weed of anti-Semitism.- These annual Shmendrik awards “honor” those who have most distinguished themselves by their seemingly unwitting support of anti-Semitism.
The awards are given every year on or about the week of Purim.
Below are this year's "winners".
- - First Place - the founder of the "Israeli anti-Semitic cartoon contest"
In response to the horrifying spread of anti-Semitism, anti-Semitic cartoons, and the announcement of an Iranian anti-Semiic cartoon competition, this Israeli shmendrik said; "We’ll show the world we can do the best, sharpest, most offensive Jew hating cartoons ever published! No Iranian will beat us on our home turf!" The Israeli "me too" twit invited artists from all over the world to send in cartoons, illustrations and short comics that express hatred for Jews in the most outrageous way. Background Story

Kennedy School of Government, Mr. Stephen M. Walt. The report alleges that a vast network of journalists, think tanks, lobbyists, and largely Jewish officials have seized the foreign policy debate and manipulated America
