It is both alarming and pathetic to see Israeli zealots not recognizing the folly of continuing to defend the indefensible. THERE IS NO WAY THESE ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES WILL EVER BE ACCEPTED BY AMERICANS or THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY. THE SPIN AROUND ISRAEL GETS MORE DESPERATE EVERY YEAR. NO AMOUNT OF SPIN WILL EVER MAKE WHAT THEY ARE DOING TO THE PALESTINIANS. THE TRUTH WILL OUT ~ EVERY TIME.
THE ORIGINAL ARTICLE GETS MUCH MORE THAN MY USUAL $.02 FLACK. LOOK FOR THE TURQUOISE PARTS. MY SNIPPITS AND SNAPPITS ALMOST BURY THE WHOLE THING. SOOOO MUCH MATERIAL TO EXPLAIN AND POKE HOLES THROUGH. FOR INTELLIGENT VERMIN, THESE FOLKS ARE PRETTY BAD WHEN IT COMES TO "GETTING IT".
VERY IMPORTANT QUESTION KIDS.
How do you sell the American public on the idea that Israel has the right to maintain or even expand Jewish settlements in the West Bank?
2. Turn the issue away from settlements and toward peace.
HOW does one do THAT?
The definition of 'peace' to Israel is found in Deuteronomy 20:11.
Wonderful options ~ Slavery or Death!
3. Invoke ethnic cleansing.
INVOKE ETHNIC CLEANSING? The last time I checked, the word "invoke" meant to call energies into oneself from outside, as in calling a Goddess or drawing down the Moon or to solicit, petition for, or appeal to a favorable attitude.
What does this mean when applied to a serious breach of international Law that employs theft, genocide and various other negative actions? We need to import a ton of animosity into Israel's credibility issues. Make sure every American has seen videos talking about 'violations of building codes' while showing the removal of a house that looks older than the modern state of Israel.
The above three recommendations come from Frank Luntz, a political consultant and pollster, in an internal study he wrote for the Washington-based group The Israel Project (TIP) on effective ways to talk to Americans about the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians.
The 117-page study, titled The Israel Project's 2009 Global Language Dictionary, was commissioned by the nonprofit group, which aims to promote Israel's side of the story, and leaked to NEWSWEEK. It includes chapters with such titles as "How to Talk About Palestinian Self Government and Prosperity" and "The Language of Tackling a Nuclear Iran." (Tip, get them to imagine living in Washington DC with bombs from Detroit falling all around.)
Please refer to MEDIA DICTIONARY: ARAB~ISRAELI CONFLICT
It all sounds like blather intended to do no more than cover the truth with bison droppings then smother the mess in chocolate and candy sprinkles. Propaganda. Mind control. Blather. Blarney stone idiocy at its worst or best, depending upon your point of view. Holding nothing of substance because the whole situation is completely illegal from EVERY angle. What part of ILLEGAL do these folks not get? How can you NOT consider the bestial Settlers and the Haredis when discussing these matters?
The report is strewn with bolded examples of "Words That Work" and "Words That Don't Work," alongside rhetorical tips such as "Don't talk about religion" and "No matter what you're asked, bridge to a productive pro-Israel message." Taken together, the 18 chapters offer a fascinating look at the way Israel and its supporters try to shape the public debate in their favor.
Sighing volubly. Please read previous comments. It gets boring having to repeat oneself. These folk are like those dozy bluebottle flies that drive one mad on a hot summer afternoon, buzzing loudly, irritably, and constantly banging into the same window, again, and again, and again. ~ too stupid to stop when they should. Well, at least the flies have that excuse. Not too sure what the Zionists could use for an excuse. OH, forgot, Zionists don't NEED excuses! To insist on one is anti semitic! Just ask Abe.
The full report can be viewed here.
Jennifer Laszlo-Mizrahi, founder and president of TIP, major Zionist propaganda organization
Asked about the document, TIP's founder and president, Jennifer Laszlo-Mizrahi, told NEWSWEEK it was based on polling and work with focus groups and is used to formulate communications strategy. She said setting people straight about settlements is particularly important: "The idea that some have in Washington that unilaterally putting pressure on Israel to make concessions on settlements is going to lead to peace is unfortunately shortsighted."
What is there to set straight about the illegal settlements? I mean, illegal is illegal is illegal! Or does the word Illegal mean "for Zionists only"?
So the rest of the world must accommodate the illegal mindset of these occupying thieves? As always, the work is up to others ~ to dare protest will have one labeled antisemitic. (Giggles at the uselessness of that expression these days.)
Israel wants to continue to steal and expects the rest of us to come to grips with the problem, not them. They know that our letting them continue is giving them the carte blanche they already use. Only NOW, they would figure we have GIVEN THEM permission! Remember, as "the chosen people of Lucifer" they have every right to do as they wish!
The settlement issue has been the single biggest source of friction between the United States and Israel since Benjamin Netanyahu became Israel's prime minister in March.
Obarak is the first President to actually bring this issue into focus. About 60+ years too late, but, at least he broaches it! However, ANY difference of opinion with the actions of these Zionist thieves is a point of friction!
President Obama has said he wants to see a complete halt to housing construction in Jewish communities of the West Bank. About 300,000 Israelis live in settlements in the West Bank, not including East Jerusalem; Palestinians regard the area as the heart of their future state.
Obama knows this is almost impossible. He is surrounded by the sons of the assassin/terrorists who bombed, raped and slaughtered their way into Palestinian homes and lands. I view this confrontation like a Punch and Judy Show ~ anything could happen but it keeps people entertained.
Also, while he is working with Ezekiel Emanuel to kill off old, poor, and sick Americans as they rewrite the health system, this Israeli settlement issue provides a great diversion and showcases his "humanitarian caring" side!
If Obama is REALLY serious about the settlements, he would clamp shut the welfare purse on this parasitic state; he would help his own electorate recover from their ongoing financial rape by the Zionist bankers and Wall Street cons.
He could simply move into Gaza and bring about positive change for the beleaguered Gazans. If America ignored the siege, the rest of the world would follow suit. Instead, he remains silent while Americans are shot into vegetation (Tristan Anderrson) or hijacked by Israeli pirates. (Cynthia McKinney) Please excuse my scepticism regarding his sincerity.
Luntz, who has advised mostly Republican candidates, appears to have tested a variety of messages on the focus groups. He concludes that "public opinion is hostile to the settlements," even among supporters of Israel.
WELL, DUH! And he advises the Republicans! That actually explains a lot about that misguided lot, doesn't it?
"Nothing is tougher to articulate effectively to neutral Americans than a message in favor of the settlements," Luntz writes. "Let me be clear about this conclusion. Plenty of Israeli and American Jewish leaders have tried, but American and European audiences rejected almost everything we tested." Luntz did not respond to NEWSWEEK's request for comment.
Could that be that we have a little more respect for law and opinions than the Zionists? Here I refer to the citizenry, not the leaders. Assimilate: HAH! Zionists, Jews? Potatoes, potahtoes. When someone can tell me the difference, I will try to beieve it. A Tribe is a Tribe, is a Tribe. This one cannot, and never will assimilate,
whether in Palestine or the world.ever has, and never will. Judea has stated, that they want a world of their own. Heck they want the WHOLE world, that is the eventual Zionist goal.
The report cites three particularly ineffective arguments Israeli officials often make in defense of settlements:
(1) The religious argument: "Quoting from the Bible in defense of the current settlements will have absolutely the opposite impact. Even your Jewish audiences will recoil at an attempt to use Biblical passages to justify the settlements."
Using the Old Testament as a real estate document" never sounds too good. I suppose in THIS case the Israelis concede this point ~ for now.
(2) The ownership argument: "Some of those reading this document will reject this advice ideologically but to claim that Israel 'owns' the land that the settlements are on will cause most listeners to reject everything else you say.
Semantics do matter, but if we correct Palestinians using the words 'disputed territory' when they say 'occupied territory,' we have to accept that the settlements are disputed territory as well."
MAJOR JEWISH WORD TWISTING TO CONFUSE AND REARRANGE MATTERS! THIS IS A N ANCIENT JEWISH TRICK ~ VERY VERY OLD. ONE RARELY WINS AGAINST SUCH VERBAL CHICANERY.
(3) The scapegoat argument: "Claiming that Palestinians and other Arab groups are using the settlement issue to gain political advantage may be correct but it does nothing to legitimize Israeli policy."
"MAY BE CORRECT"!!!! COW PATTIES! I knew this report would really blow it somewhere along the line.As if burning homes, tearing up orchards, polluting wells and land, shooting and harassing children and women, stealing crops, etc etc etc is nothing?
In the report, Luntz describes the "best settlement argument" as one that draws a parallel between the Arab communities in Israel and the Jewish settlers in the West Bank ~ and refers to the idea of evacuating Jews as racist.
BUT, ER, This man is not telling us the truth! What a shock! Evacuating the Arabs and Christians is, and always has been, the name of the game folks. All one need do is read the words of the founders of this thieving blight called Israel. Let me find a few. Not hard at all! These are NOT old lines from ancient books, they are all under 60 years old and Israel has certainly not softened its policies.
David Ben-Gurion, who became Israel’s first prime minister, explained to the executive of the Jewish Agency in November 1947, that a bleak future faced the Palestinians: “They can either be mass arrested or expelled ~ it is better to expel them.”
"The Partition of Palestine is illegal. It will never be recognized. Jerusalem was and will forever be our capital. Eretz Israel will be restored to the people of Israel. All of it. For Ever." ~ Menachem Begin, the day after the U.N. vote to partition Palestine.
"It is the duty of Israeli leaders to explain to public opinion, clearly and courageously, a certain number of facts that are forgotten with time. The first of these is that there is no Zionism, colonizations, or Jewish State without the eviction of the Arabs and the expropriation of their lands. The plan is to kill or drive out the Palestinian people using poverty, hunger and war and so allow the Zionists to expand into ‘Greater Israel’." ~ Ariel Sharon
"We must get rid of Palestinians the same way you get rid of lice." ~ Israeli Minister of Tourism, Rehevam Ze`evi
"We must use terror, assassination, intimidation, land confiscation, and the cutting of all social services to rid the Galilee of its Arab population." ~ Israel Koenig"
"We declare openly that the Arabs have no right to settle on even one centimeter of Eretz Israel. Force is all they do or ever will understand. We shall use the ultimate force until the Palestinians come crawling to us on all fours." ~ Rafael Eitan, Chief of Staff of the Israeli Defense Forces.
"In our country there is room only for the Jews. We shall say to the Arabs, "Get out!" If they don't agree, if they resist, we shall drive them out by force." ~ Professor Ben-Zion Dinur
"The idea that anywhere that you have Palestinians there can't be any Jews, that some areas have to be Jew-free, is a racist idea," Luntz suggests saying.
Mr.Luntz dares to disagree with these formidable men who laid down Israeli policy? I wonder whom he is trying to convince of this foolishness. Does he really think we goyim are that dumb? Oh, yeah, we are cattle. But WAIT! It gets better! Read the next paragraph. Gosh, what does Luntz know that the rest of us don't?
"We don't say that we have to cleanse out Arabs from Israel. They are citizens of Israel. They enjoy equal rights. (OMG HE REALLY SAID THAT!) We cannot see why it is that peace requires that any Palestinian area would require a kind of ethnic cleansing to remove all Jews. We don't accept it. Cleansing by either side against either side is unacceptable."
When we relocate Palestinians, they don't even have to walk; we assist elderly women with special care.
What drivel!!! WHERE TO BEGIN? Let me see. "Equal rights" Equal freedom of movement? Equal access to food and the necessities of life? Equal rights to housing and water? Equal access to protection from attack? Equal standing in the courts of law? Equal rights to remain in your own home or rebuild if necessary? Equal rights to representation in government? Well, that lie did not take long to blow out of the water, did it?
Luntz conveniently ignores the fact that Palestinians living within Israel's accepted borders (i.e. pre-1967 war), were born there, as were their ancestors for millenia. However, Jews living in illegal settler/colonies in the occupied West Bank and occupied East Jerusalem (including its illegally extended boundaries), are foreigners with absolutely no legal, historic or moral claim on the land.
One line of argument that Luntz says actually harms the cause is Israel's policy of restricting Arab housing construction in East Jerusalem: "The arguments about demolishing Palestinian homes because they are not within the Jerusalem building code tested SO badly that we are not even going to dignify them with a Word's That Don't Work box.
So Luntz just contradicted his line of equal rights all by himself!
Americans hate their own local planning boards for telling them where they can and can't put swimming pools or build fences. You don't need to import that animosity into your own credibility issues.
Worse yet, talking about 'violations of building codes' when a TV station is showing the removal of a house that looks older than the modern state of Israel is simply catastrophic."
This last line is just too too off-the-wall to even think about.Oh, and speaking of walls, what about THAT aspect of Israeli occupation? They do not even begin to discuss that particular illegal abomination!
Americans HATE to be fenced in! So never mention the wall. Unless it is to talk about Pink Floyd.
AMERICANS, EXPECT TO BE TALKED INTO UNDERSTANDING AND APPRECIATE THE WONDER OF SETTLEMENTS AND SETTLERS AND HOW THEY ALL JUST LOVE THEIR LOCAL PALESTINIANS!! IT IS A PROVERBIAL LOVE FEST FROM THE SOUNDS OF this REPORT.

NOW FOR A REALITY CHECK!
Lets use the German word "Lebensraum" for the Illegal Jewish settlements ? ?
"Lebensraum" served as a major motivation for Nazi Germany's territorial aggression.
Life goes on in Nazi occupied Palestine and Nazi-type Jewish Lebensraum continues with the support of Christians Worldwide.
A West Bank checkpoint managed by a private security company is not allowing Palestinians to pass through with large water bottles and some food items, Haaretz has learned.
Israeli demonstrators prevent humanitarian aid from entering Gaza
Meanwhile Americans in general remain totally ignorant about is happening in Palestine and Jews could care less.
The only Israelis who want peace are the Israeli Arabs.
Make life so hard for the Palestinians,
Israeli Jews have engaged in a Nazi type mistreatment of Palestinians since the creation of Israel and recently in Gaza in particular.
Jews STILL have the Gaza strip in a stranglehold tunnel economy forced to bring in badly needed food, medicines and other essentials to their many malnourished people like the Children reduced to eating grass to survive with only dirty or NO water.
Where are all the "Christians" who support the starving of children ?? Christian US and the UK supported the the bombing of Lebanon back 50 years and the bombing of Gaza back to the Stone Age and now the continued blockade and only contaminated water.
THESE FOOLS DO NOT REALIZE THAT ZIONISTS HATE CHRISTIANS TOO. FOR THE MOMENT THEY ARE "USEFUL IDIOTS" AND SPIT ON IN JERUSALEM OR SPOKEN OF IN CONTEMPT. THEY ALIGN WITH THE ENEMY.
The Wolf Blitzers of the US Media never showed Gazan small children trying to extract the mangled bodies of parents and siblings from the wreckage of their homes. It was up to us private bloggers to find sources and present the true visuals of war to the uncaring West.
These Israeli Jews wanted to continue the slaughter according to this poll, conducted by the Harry S. Truman Research Institute for the Advancement of Peace at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research in Ramallah, two-thirds of Israelis think Operation Cast Lead finished too early. Well that certainly puts almost 66+% of Israeli Jews officially into the subhuman level formerly occupied only by the Liebermans and Sharons.THEY ARE ALL GUILTY!
American and Canadian governments overwhelmingly supported Israel's attack on Gaza.The populace was not given much of an option.
Are the SHAMEFUL Christian Churches in the 85% Christian USA and the 75 % Christian UK aware of Palestine ?????? Their leaders are bought off by the Zionists selling the Zionist line of the Rapture and the Jews being the chosen people. These people would never question authority or their church leaders! Fools are lambs being led to the slaughter.
