Here is an excerpt from today's (01/07/09) Wayne Madsen Report (http://www.waynemadsenreport.com/ )

 

January 7, 2009 -- Israeli Foreign Ministry coordinating propaganda-media campaign

Israel's Foreign Ministry is coordinating a worldwide campaign to flood blogs and media web sites with propaganda in support of Israel's Cast Lead military operations against Gaza. The Foreign Ministry has sent out a three page "talking points" memo to be used by Israeli sympathizers in their comments posted to blogs and major media web pages. The Israeli campaign encourages its supporters to vote in on-line polls and respond to postings that are opposed to Israel's actions and supportive of Palestinian Gazans.

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL)'s program to censor anti-Israeli or pro-Palestinian videos on Youtube also appears to be in full swing. In conjunction with the ADL efforts, the Israeli Foreign Ministry is suggesting pro-Israeli Youtube videos to be posted to blogs.

Journalists who attempt to present fair coverage of the Israeli attacks on Gaza are being barraged with e-mails from Israel supporters accusing them of "buying into" Hamas propaganda and "supporting terrorism." The accusations are backfiring against Israel with many journalists comparing notes and realizing the e-mails are part of a coordinated Israeli propaganda and intimidation effort.

The Israeli propaganda campaign, while chilling independent and critical reporting in the corporate media, is having little effect among the progressive community.
