Just for the sake of balance...

Here's a quickie folks, just to balance my post about Azzam Tamimi's gross-out speech to an "anti-war" rally the other day. It's not only pro-Hizbollah rants like Tamimi's that are doing the rounds on the internet, as this rather slick piece of pro-Israeli propaganda shows. Nothing like whitewashing of history by ignoring inconvenient truths, is there? For instance, the withdrawal from the Lebanon is mentioned, whilst Ariel Sharon's stroll on Temple Mount is not. The Shalit kidnapping is mentioned, whilst the Jenin massacre is not. Israel is presented as a whiter-than-white innocent state responding to attack, whilst the Arabs (and it's of note that the author skips and slides around the Lebanese Shia of Hizbollah and the Gaza Palestinians of the as-yet-unconfirmed group that kidnapped Shalit, as though they were the same thing) are presented as untrustworthy liars who indiscriminately shell Israeli civilians.

Sorry, did I say "slick" propaganda? There's probably an "l" in there that I should take out.

OK... I'm thinking that might have sounded more coherent if it wasn't played through a sour mash filter :D

Am I right? ;)
