A commentator left this off-topic comment on an earlier post:
I can understand a completely-Torah related site deciding to make no comment on what is going on in Israel right now. But on a site which records your various interests and notes the various things that catch your attention, your lack of any comment having to do with anything but tracking silly antics in the world of black hat Orthodoxy and your photography hobby leads to the impression that it just doesn't mean anything to you.
Personally, I feel that if someone has a complaint about my blog that is not related to a specific post, it would be better to send the complaint via email. But be that as it may, I'll respond publicly to my anonymous critic.
You are correct that I have not (as of yet) posted on the Gaza War. However, the fact that I have not done so does not mean that I do not care about it. There are a number of reasons why a topic might not make it on to my blog. One reason might be that it's a topic that I simply like to avoid, such as Israeli politics. Another reason might be that it has nothing to do with this blog, like American politics. A third reason is that I might simply not have anything new or different to say about it. The Gaza War is in this category. Yes, I hope for a quick end to the war. I hope and pray with all my heart that Israel wins a decisive victory and that the danger to the Jewish people in Israel be ended as quickly as possible. But aside from that, I really have nothing new to add to the debate. I don't blog just for the sake of "hearing myself talk." If I'm going to put up a post, it's usually because I feel that I might have a point to make that hasn't been made yet, or I might have a new insight into the situation. But if I have nothing new to add, I'm not going to post just to say "It's terrible that there's a war and I hope we win." There are plenty of bloggers who are closer to the situation, there are plenty of bloggers who are more well-informed and plenty of bloggers who are more capable of giving an intelligent analysis of the situation than I can.
Trust me, if I have something new or unique to say about the Gaza War, I will. But please don't automatically assume that the lack of statement on my part means I don't care.
