In 2006 he began writing a daily blog called Mondoweiss for The New York Observer website which began to focus only on "Jewish issues" like "the Iraq disaster and my Jewishness, Zionism, neo-conservatism, Israel, Palestine." In the spring of 2007, he began Mondoweiss as an unaffiliated blog.[13][14]
