” In the brief time available to me as a panelist, I would like to put forward some thoughts about the control of narrative and the manipulation of information as an essential element of modern warfare. The Israelis call this hasbara. Since they are without doubt the most skilled contemporary practitioners of the art, it seems appropriate to use the Hebrew word for it. “
Skilled? Give me a break. Israelis are the most inept propagandists that ever drew breath, and anyway “hasbarah” means explanation, not any murky evil manipulations. Of course, to Freedman explaining things using facts and logic must seem murky and evil, since he is incapable of it.
Yeah, hasbara, public relations, no one does that but Jews. And not very well.
