Good Job Abby

RT broadcast through 22 satellite and 230 cable operators to 430 million people in over 100 countries, 22 percent of all cable subscribers worldwide.

It really looks like Israel is loosing the PR war these days and this in a country with one of the biggest PR fronts ever created. Sometime in the past Israel concocted a stealth PR campaign that Coke or Pepsi would be envious of: I am talking about the laundry list of claims that Israel makes for herself and are evident in many people's knee-jerk support of Israel: that she is a victim, the David versus Goliath complex, that they have the most humanitarian military in the world. Now, Israel is having trouble selling their myths even internally. A vocal wave refuseniks called Shministim arose a few years ago in Israel (Shministim is Hebrew for 12 graders the average enlistment age in the IDF). Says one Shministim, Moriel Rothman, about the Israeli occupation: " The Occupation– which is the IDF’s primary function these days- is cruelty and injustice manifest. The Occupation is anti-God, anti-Love and staggeringly, constantly violent. The Occupation is based on a system of racial/ethnic separation that does, in fact, resemble South African Apartheid and segregation in the Southern United States until the 1960s. And this “temporary” Occupation is not “on its way out,” but is rather growing in strength every single day."
Now we have the recent debacle of Netanyahu with his Acme Bomb Company bomb at the United Nations and their admission that they are targeting journalists: what a way reinforce to the world that you have the most humanitarian military on the planet.
