The power of an argument, is not always bore from the truth it contains but rather in whatever will convince the listener to agree with it, which unfortunately includes deception and emotional manipulation. It was once said that we should “Speak good, or remain silent” – Prophet Muhammad. Deception is Zionist Hasbara’s goal -‘Hasbara’ a Hebrew word for ‘explain (explain our situation how we perceive it)- its aim is to push Israeli propaganda upon impressionable, sheepish people who are already so complicit with the tripe produced by mainstream media outlets that convincing them is not so difficult, in fact Israeli Hasbara anticipates and prays on an acquiescent population.
Outlandish Propaganda has become not only a ‘want’, but also a need in order to cover up their inhuman occupation and ethnic cleansing of a whole people for over five decades. Let’s not forget the extreme measures used such as payed online troll groups like the ‘JIDF’ (Jewish Internet Defense Force) who use arguing tactics as a method of indoctrinating people into the “neutral stance” way of seeing Israel-Palestine and always play the “Israel is misunderstood” or “Israel is defending Itself”, “both sides are to blame” cards. When someone tries to argue against their heinous crimes and their illegal occupation of Palestine – which by the way is completely illegal under international law – you will be labelled an anti-Semite as well as being slandered in childishly executed attacks. If the critic is Jewish, they will label them as a self-hating Jew.
According to Ali Abunimah, co-founder of the Electronic Intifada and author of “the Battle for Justice in Palestine”, The National Union of Israeli Students (NUIS) has partnered full time with the Israeli governments to spread its propaganda online and on college campuses around the world with a pay of up to $2000 simply within the comfort of their home. The propaganda used to “educate” you is all very similar once it comes down to online trolls:
1. Ask a random question about Israel.
2. Take on a neutral stand
3. Hostile stance once you say something anti-Zionist
4. Start to defend Israel
5. Argues how Israelis deserve a right to a state
6. Breaks it to you that Israel is the best nation on earth and starts to quote Golda Meir
The NUIS has issued a document on leading Israeli students how to beat “anti-Semitism”, which what they really mean by that is to shut people up from speaking the truth. The invitation for this was released in Hebrew, however, Electronic Intifada has translated it into English.
“The National Union of Israeli Students [NUIS] unites about 300,000 students from all over the country. NUIS promotes the goals and objectives of students, guards the status of students and impacts the public agenda in all aspects from the perspective that the future generation should be a full partner in shaping the Israeli reality of tomorrow.”
That is an extract from the NUIS invitation, explaining how the process works; the invitation goes on to further explain what it means for students to spread their hasbara through the “comfort” of their homes. “After training, the student will begin his activities. The student will do the activities in the comfort of his home, where every week he will be obligated to about 5 hours of activities for a period of one calendar year (not academic year). Students will be paid a total of NIS 7,500 [$2,000] to perform the tasks of the project, at least 5 hours weekly for a total of 240 hours of activities under the project umbrella”. What is better than to get students with time on their hands?
Translation of the document:
THE “NEUTRAL STANCE”
Having a neutral stance when it comes to the Palestinian – Israeli conflict, completely contraindicates the “stance for peace” they claim it is within itself. You wouldn’t stand neutral between colonial slave owners and the enslaved, or on the issue South African apartheid and propose that is the peaceful observers position… As Dante Alighieri once put it and as was re-quoted by MLK Jr. when addressing military intervention in Vietnam “The darkest places in hell burn for those that in times of moral crisis maintain their neutrality”. Would there be neutral stance between 20 men beating up a child and the child fighting back? Could there be morally neutral stance to take between a rape victim and rapist? No of course not, because when one is being oppressed we cannot sit back and claim neutrality between oppressor and oppressed, this concept is pure insanity.
The use of Hollywood
Hollywood, the Zionist entity, has been used to vilify groups of people since the start of its foundation in 1919. Throughout time, the groups targeted have always differed according to what fit into their perception of “terrorists” or “savageries”. The Russian’s have been demonized ever since the cold war, today and with Vladimir Putin’s stance against the US lately, things have just increased a little. Hollywood has since its inception been a strong tool of American foreign policy advocates, and has been used to drill hardline propaganda into the minds of its viewers in order to coerce the audience to adopt these views as their own. A very obvious example of such propaganda can be seen in the likes of ‘Pearl harbor’ a well-directed, award winning blockbuster, with a love triangle story, creatively used to push sympathy for an attack upon an American military base site, overshadowing the brutalization of Japanese American POWs and ultimately the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 an event still not apologized for by Nobel “peace” prize winning President Barrack Obama upon his Japan visit as of late 2016. It also omits the oil embargo placed on Japan and encroachment of US vessels into Japanese waters and all the events and provocations that led up to the attack on Pearl Harbor. Again we can turn to the Vietnam war and see a multitude of material produced by the Hollywood education system of motion picture goodies which paint the invading soldiers as courageous war heroes and the Vietnamese defenders as savages, this continues on and on and if you follow America’s history of conflict I guarantee you will find movies which aim to justify or slip in subliminal propaganda, ‘Back to the future’ being a great example of America’s beef with Libya at the current time, as when we look at the relevance that Libyan terrorists with machine guns killing the main character has to the plot, we can begin to question how exactly it was that Libyans found their way into an American carpark in order to kill a time traveler and then disappear not being involved again in the movie’s plot. The classic Western kicked off an entire genre of movies where the expansionist killed ‘savage Indians’.
Now, let’s not forget about the vilification of the Arabs, which is so visible yet not very for those who are degenerate. It is quite ironic that the Arab image is taken from the Europeans yet not from the Arabs themselves. An attempt to rob them off their culture, folklore, embroidery and language. In present day Palestine, the Arab traditional dance known as dabka is stolen by culture thieves. The land theft by illegal Israeli settlers wasn’t enough. Alongside this is the Kuffyieh which has represented the symbol of resistance since the beginning of the Palestinian – Zionist conflict. It is sad to say that something that was once worn by peaceful Arab farmers, is now shown to be a symbol of terrorism through the lens of the West. The desert, the sheikh who is too obsessed with and has oversexualized the European women, too rich and stupid to know the value of money and of course, just like in the movie ‘True Lies’ the incompetent and contradictory terrorists who don’t deliver what they say are the core images, embedded in the Hollywood portrayal of the Arabs.
The Zionists have always played the victim when questioned about issues of conflict they have had with the Palestinians and the region as a whole. Yet again, when the first Zionist congress in Basil was held to call for a homeland in Palestine, it was undoubtedly clear that the Zionists had one agenda, to deceive the stupid and to silence the educated by accusing them of the old saying “you’re an anti-Semite”.
