Change Arab minds through the media honestly.

Reader comment on item: Strange Logic in the Lebanon War

Submitted by Michael Visnov (United States), Aug 16, 2006 at 09:34

I agree. America has the stongest marketing and media capabilities in the world. One of our greatest assets in dealing with the challenge of Islamists should be our power to change minds through culturally aware, educational campaigns and programs targeted to Arab youth around the world through the media.

If Arab youth could awaken to the fact that their people have been taught lies for decades by their tyrranical leaders they may realize they have been fighting the wrong enemy. And, if the world media could be educated on the basic history of the middle east and important key decisions like UN Resolution 181 it would not be foolish enough to take sides with terrorists and buy-into their brilliant propaganda. CNN should be developing shows like "A history of Israel and Palestine." to explain the root cause of terror against Israel and the U.S. instead of merely reporting the symtoms.
