On December 27, 2012, Dr. Shibi Greenfield in his report titled ‘Israel PR 2012: Myth and Reality’, prepared for Israeli think tank, Molad, had concluded: “Israeli public examination in light of international public diplomacy measures reveals that – that contrary to his image, it’s array of sophisticated and well-coordinated. Therefore, you don’t blame Israel’s diplomatic difficulties in marketing problem, but the product – Israeli policy itself“.
Mark Leonard, a Zionist journalist and blogger, wrote on November 21, 2012: “Every nation is entitled to defend itself. But the problem with these repeated military operations (against Hamas and Hizballh) is that they create a growing pool of anti-Israel resentment in the neighborhood while eroding Israel’s international standing“.
It’s heartening to learn that more and more Israeli think tanks are accepting the fact that Israeli Hasbara (propaganda) has lost its credibility outside the Zionist crowed. Even with a force of over 100,000 Israel Hasbara Committee employees supported by six Jewish families controlling 96% of the world mainstream media – The Zionist regime is being considered as the top threat to world peace by various polls taken by PEW, BBC, Brookings Institute, Zogby poll, etc.
In 2010, Tel Aviv-based security and socioeconomic think tank Reut Institute in its report, titled ‘Eroding Israel’s Legitimacy in the International Arena’, had painted a similar gloomy picture of Israeli Hasbara performance.
Russian-American Zionist Jewish writer and marketing expert, Gary Wexler, wrote at Jewish daily Forward: “It has become clear that the world doesn’t care about Israel’s wines, its Bauhaus architecture, its fashion, its alluring women, its sexy gay men, its beaches, its ballet or its hummus. The world, its media and its university campuses are riveted upon Israel’s relationship with the Palestinians as well as the state of its democracy“.
Paul R. Pillar, former CIA official wrote on January 2: “With the United States just as with Israel, the sources of negative feelings abroad are policies, not the quality of efforts to sell the policies. People feel most strongly not about a government’s advertisements and messages but about its actions—specifically, actions that affect directly their lives or the lives of people with whom they identify, or that link the government to other governments that take actions that affect those lives. The actions range from drone strikes to military occupations to the abetting of Israeli policies in occupied territories. If there is no change in such things, don’t blame the salesmanship“.
A poll taken by Zogby Research Services among Palestinians living in the United states reported last month that Palestinian want armed state and no deal on Jerusalem – something the Zionist regime will never allow along its border. The only sensible, peaceful and everlasting solution to Israel-Palestine conflict is a democratic one-state Palestine, based on ‘one-vote- one person’ with equal rights for all its citizen, dismantling of racist Zionist political parties and Israel Occupation Force (IOF), right of return for the natives and suitable compensations for their loss of properties to the Jew settlers – and of course the dismantling of country’s nuclear arsenal. All those racist Jews, who don’t want to live in peace with the natives – they should be allowed to migrate back to their ancestral lands – Germany, Russia, Poland, France, the UK, the US, etc. – as many White settlers did in South Africa, Algeria and India. In fact, Professor Edward Said had predicted long time ago that the great majority of Israeli Jews would rather prefer to live under Muslim rule in Palestine than going back to their ancestral western homeland where they know anti-Semitism would be waiting for them.
