Taking land from Palestinians = anti-ethnic cleansing

George Orwell continues to turn in his grave

Columnist Douglas Bloomfield reports that The Israel Project (TIP) — a Washington- based group that describes itself as “devoted to educating the press and the public about Israel while promoting security, freedom and peace” — advocates accusing those who support removing illegal Israeli settlements of promoting “a kind of ethnic cleansing to move all Jews” from the West Bank.
Meanwhile, the state of Israel itself is concerned with the public relations fall-out resulting from bombing the heck out of Gaza, killing about 1400 Palestinians at a rate of about 100:1 of the rockets launched by Hamas terrorists. Instead of, say, changing Israel's deleterious and counter-productive strategy, the prime minster's communications chief wants to spend more money on pr, explaining that critics of such military actions are anti-Semitic.

It seems interns and mossad agents are not enough for Israel to turn this public perception around so they are hiring talkbackers.,7340,L-3744516,00.html

The Foreign Ministry unveiled a new plan this week: Paying talkbackers to post pro-Israel responses on websites worldwide. A total of NIS 600,000 (roughly $150,000) will be earmarked to the establishment of an “Internet warfare” squad.

The Foreign Ministry intends to hire young people who speak at least one language and who study communication, political science, or law – or alternately, Israelis with military experience gained at units dealing with information analysis.
