Going on the "Offensive"

Reader comment on item: Accepting Israel as the Jewish State[: Public Opinion in Four Arab Countries]

Submitted by Susan Heller-Somerville (United States), May 11, 2010 at 13:21

I agree with Daniel Pipes that it would be a the most viable approach - ie. helping to increase the percentage of those people who support a Jewish state. Increasing from 20% to 60% is an ideal, but how feasible unless we can devise a way to go on the "offensive." Maybe, the method in which the United States responded to the Communist threat in the late '40's and into the '50's is a good example. I am referring to Radio Free Europe, which reached millions of people. We not only have radio and television now, but the internet. It's a great tool. Maybe, via comedy and drama via movies? (Perhaps, less likely.) But someone out there must have a more innovative notion.
