The Hasbara Project

Possible one of the most successful projects in American history, the Hasbara Project has influenced millions of Americans to support Israel through downplaying Israeli war crimes and demonizing the Palestinians. Starting in the 1980’s, the Hasbara Project’s mission statement was to “train foreign-service officers in communications by placing them with American companies”. In translation: Implementing Israel-sympathetic journalists into the heart of American media. An example of their efforts can be found in the book, “Battleground: Fact and Fantasy in Palestine” written by Hasbara missionary, Shmuel Katz. He considers the book textbook material that is a must-read for anyone influenced by the “Arab-propaganda”. The New York Times considers it at “the Number One World Problem Today”, which they go on further by calling it, “one-sided”.
Ever heard much about the Israel-Lebanon war? Probably not, because of the Hasbara. It was a humiliating defeat for the Israelis after invading Lebanon and killing over a thousand Lebanese civilians–much more than the total of Hezbollah causalities, just o end up behind defeated by Hezbollah. Hasbara journalists defended the U.S.-Israeli shelling in Lebanon, and failed to report on the civilian casualties. It is no coincidence that the media spent only a day reporting on the rockets coming from Lebanon into Israel, in responce to the bombing in Gaza December-January. Israel’s reaction has always been to invade and attack on countries that were deemed as a “threat” to their national security. Well, Lebanon proved itself as a definite threat, but one that cannot be won.
It doesn’t stop there though. A controversial documentary, “Obsession” circulated the U.S.. The documentary deemed Islam as barbarian, and anti-Semitic religion, which focused on demonizing Muslims with a subtext on American Muslims, and the threat they hold to our society. Who funded the distribution of 28 million free Obsession documentaries? Expectedly, the neo-conservatives, as well as former Israeli diplomats. Just another Hasbara project.
Hasbara is derived from the old Hebrew word, “l’hasbir” which means “to explain”. It is next to impossible on researching more about the Hasbara Project becuse of its influence on the media, and the common-use of the word “hasbara” for “Israel foreign policy”. While there is a physical hasbara project, hasbara itself stands for something much more broad: The downplaying of Israeli war crimes, justification for Palestinian subjection, and Middle Eastern propaganda. You see it everyday, at bookstores, in newspapers, on the news, in your children’s schools–It’s influence is egregious. Hasbara is a mission: To gain American support for Israel. It’s current mission? Well, the Iranian’s “nuclear activity” headliness can say enough.

  1. Thank you for your blog page !!

    The Zionazi bastards are ruthless liars. They are organized via more than several mechanisms (“Hasbara Handbook”, “Megaphone” software, “Talkbackers”, etc.) and they are desperate because they are LOSING their war to win hearts and minds.

    Anyone can gain more info about “hasbara” by simply doing these 3 Google searches: 1. “hasbara handbook debate”, 2. “israel talkbackers” and 3. “israel megaphone propaganda”.

    There is a great YouTube video clip about the ZIonists holding seminars to teach their hasbaRats how to edit information on the internet and (especially) on Wikipedia. I’m including a current list of YouTube links because these vids are often removed soon after they’re uploaded. I encourage everyone to download and save this clip … and to upload it again onto YouTube and wherever else you can post it. (Find free video downloaders online).

    Zionazi Israel is the greatest threat to world peace !!!

    Current List of YouTube vids (all the same video clip) The last one has comments disabled, which is probably why it’s lasted so long.
