Media is giving very wrong picture of Israel and IDF

Reader comment on item: Hold Damascus Responsible [for Hezbollah Violence in Southern Lebanon]

Submitted by Save The World (India), Aug 3, 2006 at 23:27

Although Courageous People like Daniel Pipes are doing great job on media front , but we can see the Media like BBC , CNN , etc are giving a biased coverage of the War. Like CNN-IBN is giving covreage of War like its an aftremath of WW II. I suppose Israeli Foreign Ministry , Embassies , Jewish / Israeli/ Zionist Organisations must launch a propaganda drive to show the real coverage of the conflict.

I am very sorry to say that the Media has portrayed the War as if it is unprovoked , unwanted brutal aggression by Mighty Israeli Army on peace loving , law abiding , unarmed , impoverished , poor , innocent civilians. Not even a single channel is showing the Full reality of Conflict and resposibility of Hizballah to initiate the conflict by cross border raid and kidnapping of IDF soldiers. Nobody is showing the history of Hizballah , Hizballah is deadliest Islamic Terror Organisation with a well organised Terror Network in Southern Lebanon and they are responsible for hundreds of attacks against westerners.

I urge the Hasbara Committee of Israel , Ministry of External Affairs , Ambassadors , Media Wing , Intellectuals to meet in an urgent meeting and discuss the ways to fight this media war.

We are winning war in the battlefield and we are losing it in the Media Field, Here the terrorists are gaining ground and symapathy from non biased viewers of World. and Sympathy for Hizballah will translate into hatred for Israel in future.

These steps can be taken to fight media war ,

1) Urgent meeting of the Concerned and responsible diplomats.

2) Discuss way to counter Hizballah media war and selective coverages.

3) Compilation and dissemination of Bloody history of Islamic Terrorists in general and Hizballah / Hamas in particular.

4) Back your claims with Audio / Vedia clips , Articles , sections of News papers , Writings of Well known authors , Statements of top leaderships and intellectuals , Websites , Blogs , etc.

5) Foreign Ministry must instruct Israeli ambassadors abroad to convene a press meet and brief them with the real footage showing that the Raids are selective in the areas of terrorists only, not like as the media is showing that whole lebanon is leveled by IAF jets.

6) Meet Foreign Ministers of various countries to explain to them the Threat Hizballah and other terrorists poses to World Peace and to their own countries.

7) Arrange Press Conference and feed them with the real footage and reality of War so that they can publish it further.

8) We have to convince the World that Hamas Terrorists in Gaza , Islamic Jehad / Fateh in West Bank , Hizballah in Lebanon , Rogue regime in Damascus and Nuclear Enrichment Program of Islamic Iran , and possible civil war in Iraq , Terror attacks in Afghanistan are all linked to each other and poses a Greater Threat to World Peace.

9) Focus on inflicting maximum damage to Hizballah Terror Network in Minimum Time and keep the reserves ready for major operations in future.

10) Everything must be done in full coordination of USA & UK as these are the countries which have openly supported Israel's war for self defense. Recently Mr.Blair has given speech in LA outlining the possibilties of future and threat of Global Islamist Terrorism. He is the most excellent spokesman and ambassador of the Coalition of willing to fight Terrorism. and Please try to meet Foreign Ministers of Europe , Russia , China and India as well. They all are suffering from Islamist Terrorism , We have to take careful steps to bring them into the Winning Coalition of Civilised Nations and it will be the first victory in the War against the axis of evil in Middle East.

We request you to play a major role in this World Awakening Movement.

Thanks and wish you success in your hard and honest efforts.
