How Israel trains and employs specialists in Hasbara to take away your rights. Just what is “Hasbara” one may ask? Well, to put it mildly, it’s a technique Israel uses in its attempt to change public opinion of Israel. The premise being, that Israel's problems stem from the need of better propaganda, and nothing at all to do with Israel being unjust. For instance, when it commits war crimes, murders children, ignores the over 60 UN resolutions it has against it, uses Phosphorous and DIME missiles on civilians, you know things like that. They can’t have people thinking they are the genocidal rogue state that they surely have become, so they attempt to counter world opinion by targeting media, university students, world governments, world politicians, other religious leaders, academics, and of course, those of us who write and read online. But now this is beginning to translate into an attempt to change our rights of free expression and speech!! Heads up people! There are many “hasbara” groups and they are supported by the IDF and many are even trained and supported by the Israeli government, so that should worry any sane person. Today I will attempt to lay out how they spread their lies, target our Governments, retailers and internet providers with Hasbara to firstly conceal the truth and secondly to censor us. Get educated on this, it is very important for you to recognise when you are being hit with “hasbara”
Here is what Wiki says about “hasbara”
EXAMPLE: Some hasbara documents explain their techniques, reporting on methods used by Palestinian activists, and providing advice on how to counter them, or how to use the same techniques in defense of Israel:
HOW TO USE HASBARA TO COUNTER THE ABOVE: describing demonstrators as "youths" creates a different impression from calling them "children". For the Israel activist, it is important to be aware of the subtly different meanings that well chosen words give. Call 'demonstrations' "riots", many Palestinian political organizations "terror organizations", and so on. Name calling is hard to counter. Don't allow opponents the opportunity to engage in point scoring..
Ok, did you get that? Children are now called “youths” so as to cover up when they kill children, they believe it is easier for the world to swallow if they call them “youths” And of course, any protest by Muslims or Arabs simply HAS to be reported in an “ominous “ way, hence Demonstrations against Israel’s genocide, miraculously become “riots!!” Are you getting this now? So let’s just put those two examples together and what we now have is this: “Today the Israeli army opened fire on a gang of MUSLIM YOUTHS who were RIOTING” as opposed to this: “Today the Israeli army opened fire on a group of Palestinian CHILDREN who were “DEMONSTRATING.” See the difference? You have just been hit with a healthy dose of Zionist Hasbara.
Wiki also states:
Various people may be trained in hasbara by the Israeli government:
The Ambassador's course offers community leaders, educators, students and activists in the Diaspora an opportunity to acquire both a comprehensive overview of the conflict, tools to understand Palestinian propaganda/media bias and the means to advocate Israel's policy
So, the Israeli government is up to its collective arse in the production, promotion, spreading and funding of Hasbara. And one of the best places to spread the lies is on University campuses all over the world. Yep, get them while they are young! So, of course they create a worldwide Jewish student group, called “The World Union of Jewish Students” who handle the job for the Israeli Government. Very well funded and organized, they actually have a handbook for all their student members. See link below for the PDF handbook called “Hasbara Handbook; Promoting Israel on Campus” this is from 2002, so be very aware these “hasbara” techniques have been being used for many years now. Pay special attention to page 115, as like me, you may find you have already come across one of these “Hasbara” spreaders online.
But it is not just mere students working for Israel to spread “hasbara” Why in America you have the largest “hasbara” spreader of all. And this hasbara spreading group that operates with a 40 million dollar a year budget, influences who gets elected in America, who gets accepted in America, what American foreign policy will be in America, what’s on your television and much more. Yes, it’s those glorious bullshitters AIPAC. I won’t cover AIPAC today, they will get their own very special blog, just for them later on.
In addition to AIPAC another one in America is the ADL or Anti-Defamation League. Check this out for some real Internet hasbara:
ADL: Censoring the Internet on behalf of Israel
2001 SEATTLE -- In a mid December conference in Jerusalem, computer experts, governmental officials, and academics gathered under the banner of , "Confronting On-Line Terrorism and Anti-Semitism." Amongst the names of sponsors and co-sponsors, one organization stands as the most active by far in the field of censorship, mainly in the United States; the Anti Defamation League (ADL).
What compels dozens of professionals and activists to fly long distances from all corners of the globe to meet in a "disputed city" only miles away from a war zone? It's the fear of losing a greater war, a war that has cost Israel an abundance, the Internet media war that is.
The ADL, has a powerful lobby which deeply impacts US domestic as well as foreign policy

Yes, the war for the hearts and minds of people is being waged online, we bloggers are important!! This is why the ADL and other Zionist organisations have to work hand in hand with Israel in an attempt to stop people from telling the truth online, using the all encompassing and ever changing umbrella term of “anti-Semitism” Because, after all, if you criticize Israel or it’s radical right wing religious zealots called Zionists, you are an anti-Semite, according to them. However, I believe we have received a well deserved reprieve in the fact that the UN has saved us with a worldwide definition of “Zionism” and equating it to “racism.” I say you betcha!
10 November 1975
Taking note also of the Political Declaration and Strategy to Strengthen International Peace and Security and to Intensify Solidarity and Mutual Assistance among Non-Aligned Countries,3/ adopted at the Conference of Ministers for Foreign Affairs of Non-Aligned Countries held at Lima from 25 to 30 August 1975, which most severely condemned zionism as a threat to world peace and security and called upon all countries to oppose this racism and imperialist ideology,
Determines that zionism is a form of racism and racial discrimination.
2400th plenary meeting
10 November 1975
No wonder Israel hates the UN, it has uncovered and publicized the true meaning of Zionism. Note that “Zionism” is not “Judaism”, but a new demented radical right wing nutcase perversion of the Jewish faith and ideals. Like Al Qaeda is to Muslimism, so is Zionism to Judaism.
Have a look at one of the leading Zionist websites, See what it’s founder says about the internet and controlling it, also notice how anti-Zionism is lumped together with “anti-Semitism” which is not the same thing at all!, But this is the hasbara they are spreading, that the two are identical, and if they can get all Jews to believe this then they have won the battle with their own., That will be the first step, making anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism the same thing. The world must not allow this to take place:
Excerpt from Zionism on the Web:
“In the current climate, anything goes, and if this is not changed in the next few years, this attitude will be cemented and we may miss the boat,” he said.
Dr Oboler, who recently returned to Melbourne after studying in the UK and Israel for five years,is CEO of Zionism on the Web – a website that aims to combat online anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism.
After attempting to convince the Jewish community, as well as the community-at-large, of the growing danger of web-based misinformation, Dr Oboler said he is concerned that mainstream internet users will be taken in. “My concern”, he said, is that people will “accept these views”.
Many other so called “Jewish” groups are also promoting the same thing; they are Zionists in Jewish clothing. Take a look at the “World Jewish Congress” website.
Anti-Zionism = Anti-Semitism
Anti-Semitism often comes in the form of excessive, unbalanced criticism of Israel, including calls for boycotts of Israeli products, etc. In 2007, a British trade union called for the boycott of Israeli academics. In most cases, such expressions of anti-Zionism are just another form of anti-Semitism
So boycotting Israel is anti-Semitic?? MAJOR HASBARA ALERT!!!And more here:
Anti-Semitism in the media and on the internet
Along with everybody else, extremists are increasingly making use of the internet, the most wide reaching form of mass media. Extremist groups use the internet to advertise themselves and their ideologies, publicise their activities, communicate with their members and raise funds. Young, impressionable, people are increasingly being misled by hate propaganda disseminated in this way.
Technological advances have also reduced the cost of producing and distributing books and leaflets and television and radio shows can be produced and broadcast over the internet for little or no cost.
CENSOR CENSOR CENSOR
Yes, I’d say they are worried about the Internet, the one place they cannot control yet, Notice I said yet! They are after us as we speak, read on.
Yesterday I reported on how Zionists and their well funded government approved groups operate online. Using GIYUS, JIDF and MEGAPHONE to spam and censor sites on face book, you tube and other places online. Well take a look at the groups who support GIYUS, all of them are Zionist sites and all of them want to shut down internet talk or discussion about Israel and its policies that they don’t like. So beware bloggers!
Here are the MANY Zionist organizations and groups, who support those online censorship organizations I discussed in my two blog entries “Online Censorship By Israel” and “How Low Can Israel Go” e.g. GIYUS and JIDF
And it is not just online they are targeting. Read what the World Jewish Congress has to say about the internet, main stream media, advertisers, and retailers here:
• Governments, regulators, online retailers and internet service providers need to address the proliferation of anti-Semitic and other hate material on the internet and adopt clear guidelines on this issue, especially when children and teenagers and targeted.
• Anti-Semitic broadcasters or newspapers must not benefit from state-funding. Where possible, licenses for TV and radio broadcasters should be granted only if these do not disseminate hate propaganda.
• Self-regulation by internet service providers and online retailers to prevent the spread of anti-Semitic, xenophobic or racist material is the appropriate way to deal with this issue. Online retailers and companies must take their responsibilities seriously, or risk being exposed.M It is morally wrong and distasteful to make money with items glorifying the Nazis.
• Companies that knowingly accept the publication, or promote the sale, of anti-Semitic or racist materials on their platforms and websites should be condemned, and in extreme cases boycotted. However, freedom of speech should not be restricted and efforts to combat hate propaganda in the media should not primarily consist of bans and censorship.
So what we have here is them going after a "foot in the door" approach, an attempt by Zionists to involve our governments in deciding what we can read or write online. Why? Because the Jewish lobby has more power over governments than it’s people. For instance, in America, they could possibly convince an American President or Congress to go for this censorship by using their political lobby power and money, but they could not have the same effect on the American people. So they target our governments in subtle ways to get their foot in the door for more censorship down the line.
In addition they are targeting our media, see 2nd paragraph above. They want to remove the licenses of broadcasters who do not buy into the hasbara Israel spreads. Additionally, they are targeting companies, e.g. retailers; so for instance, many of us have bought “Free Gaza” t-shirts, or shirts that support Palestine at places like café press online. If left to these Zionists organizations like above, those retailers would be targeted and forced to stop selling those items Israel deems as anti-Israel, or rather are pro-Palestinian. So you won’t be able to buy a shirt that says “Zionism Sucks” for instance, that would be verboten!!! Sig Heil to the Zionists!
And finally, I will show you how they are promoting themselves on our Televisions worldwide, very subtly, using “entertainment” to spread their cause. Check out the new show created by Israeli Hasbara artists. It is a version of Donald Trumps “The Apprentice” but very different indeed. And best of all, the winner comes to New York to spread hasbara in person as his new job! Get your barf bags ready people, you’ll need them.
Excerpts from: Hasbara’ Goes Prime Time
On “The Ambassador,” which had a Nov. 24 premiere, 14 Israelis aged 25 to 30 are competing to make the best case for Israel in a largely hostile world. One contestant is fired at the end of each show. (snip)
The winner will receive a one-year post in New York as a communications expert for Israel At Heart, an advocacy group launched two years ago by local businessman and philanthropist Joey Low.(snip)
The big-budget Israel broadcast, which will take the contestants to England, France, the United States and other locations for nearly three months as they compete to prove themselves the most effective defender and advocate of the Jewish state, is bringing renewed attention to that perennial topic of analysis and debate: How can Israel do a better job of stating its case?(snip)
An internal Foreign Ministry report, leaked recently in the media, warned that Israel’s standing could deteriorate in the next decade to the level of South Africa during the apartheid era. The report called particular attention to Israel’s relationship with Europe, which has worsened in recent years. Some European intellectuals openly question Israel’s right to exist, and Israeli officials are worried their country will be viewed as a pariah by most of the world, and that support in America, a consistent and strong ally, may slip.(snip)
his effort to improve Israel’s image has focused on bringing groups of young, articulate and attractive post-army men and women from Israel to speak to college students across the U.S. as well as in Europe and South America.
Alon Pinkas, the former Israeli consul general in New York, appears to agree. ” American Jews believe if the Israelis could only find spokespeople who are “telegenic” and “talk like an American,” Pinkas said, then “the world would understand us.”
(What appears clearer, though no one likes to talk about it publicly, is that Americans have negative views of Arabs. Current figures of 10 to 12 percent support for Palestinians is about as high as the number has been.)
noting that the White House and Congress are strongly supportive of Israel because Jerusalem’s positions are consistent with Washington’s, and because of the efforts of the pro-Israel lobby in Washington. As an example, Bard noted that even when Israel was “being pilloried” by the media during the Jenin offensive two years ago, Congress voted to give Israel an additional $200 million and place greater restrictions on funds for the Palestinians.
Israel’s budget for worldwide hasbara is only about $9 million a year; by contrast, AIPAC’s budget for political outreach and lobbying is $40 million.
Israeli Prime Minister Sharon has made some missteps the last several years, like talking about a cabinet-approved policy to kill Yasir Arafat (either do it or not, but don’t talk about it).
Complaints about Israeli hasbara won’t stop, though, until Israel is embraced by the world as a brave democracy struggling against heavy odds, appreciated for its remarkable achievements rather than attacked for its military steadfastness. Maybe that will be the task for the Israeli participants in season two of “The Ambassador.”
Big article read it all here:
So, there you have it folks. They are attempting to ramp up hatred for Arabs as well. And, at the same time influence, or rather, bullshit or censor people. They are using government trained "hasbara" specialists and groups, targeting our media, governments, internet, inernet providers, retailers, social networks, universities, academics, law makers, television, radio, blogs and basically any venue where human beings in the world can get an alternative view of Israel, besides the one issued by the IDF and Israeli government. I will leave you with a quote from George Washington,who,after all could not tell a lie! Quote taken from Maxims of General George Washington taken from by A. A. Appleton & Co:
“They (the Jews) work more effectively against us, than the enemy’s armies. They are a hundred times more dangerous to our liberties and the great cause we are engaged in… It is much to be lamented that each state, long ago, has not hunted them down as pest to society and the greatest enemies we have to the happiness of America.”
Keep blogging the truth!!
