Gadi Adelman received an email yesterday from the Lorenzo Natali Prize Committee that he had been nominated for the 2010 Journalism prize for an article they saw in The Weekly Blitz. The Weekly Blitz, which is in Bangladesh, publishes Gadi's article each week in the only anti-Jihadist newspaper in the Muslim world.
The Lorenzo Natali Prize rewards journalists committed to Human Rights, Democracy and Development. Originally reserved for the printed and online press, the Lorenzo Natali Prize has opened in 2008 to radio and television journalists.
Created in 1992 by the European Commission to promote dedicated journalism of the highest quality, it was named after Lorenzo Natali for his dedication to his work as former vice-president of the European Commission, in charge of cooperation and development between 1985 and 1989.
To organize the Lorenzo Natali Prize, the European Commission works with some of the most prestigious world press associations:
- Reporters Without Borders, winner of the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Mind in 2005
- World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers, which represents a total of more than 18000 publications over the five continents
In 2009 Lorenzo Natali Prize Edition had, once again, elicited noted interest: more than 1,000 journalists from more than 133 countries participated. The 15 award winners were selected by an independent jury, made up of NGO representatives, leading journalists, and news agency representatives.

Dear Mr. Adelman,
I just read your article and wanted to thank you for opposing the despicable plan to erect a mosque at the Sacred area of Ground Zero. Please keep up the information to as many people as you can and spread the word about these cowardly, murdering people.
Are you aware also, that they plan on having the opening of this mosque on the 10th Anniversary of the attacks? If that isn't a deliberate, well planned slap in the face....nothing is.
Bad enough they pulled off their cowardly attacks, now we are letting them walk all over the graves of our loves one.
Right you are, Mr.Adelman, we've lost our minds, along with our freedoms and our way of life that we've know up to now, and we are laying out the red carpet for them threw it all.
Peace to you,

Starting Thursday, June 10th at 9PM eastern standard time Gadi will be on the radio!
Windows to Liberty is an established internet radio network with a large following and a large variety of programming. Please go to the Windows to Liberty website and look at the shows and and what they offer along with their sister network Woo TV.
This is an exciting and new venture as well as another way to get the word out and educate people about Islam.
Gadi has decided to name the one hour radio show "America Akbar", the translation of the Arabic word "Akbar" is great.
Using a twist on the screams of Jihadists, what could better than to call the show "America is great"?
Please be sure to tune in live for Gadi's first show Thursday night, June 10th at 9PM est. and each and every Thursday at 9PM!
