In the propaganda war…

Fascinating site built to propagate the Israeli side in the PR war. Not least of interest is the entry to a CNN poll (which no longer appears on the front page) with only two options: vote for Israel, or not at all. It doesn’t even let you know what question you are supposed to be answering. Still, I’m sure it’s food for thought amongst our own back room politicos looking for a cunning plan. More impressive by far however is the forensic approach of some of the US bloggers, like this effort at mapping the activities of UNIFIL in South Lebanon. Thanks to Mick Hall for the heads up!
