    By Armin Rosen

    FailedMessiah.png ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA — A few days after a team of Navy SEALS killed Al Qaeda mastermind Osama Bin Laden, Shmarya Rosenberg, whose website FailedMessiah.com is perhaps the Internet's only English-language news source devoted to news from the insular world of ultra-orthodox Judaism, received a tip from one of his readers in Brooklyn.

    A news wire (and much more) for America's ethnic press

    By Lauren Kirchner

    Citizen-powered local news for Minneapolis and St. Paul
