Israel Take A Lesson From The Nazi's

Israel hires PR firm on 60th birthday for a political facelift | World news | The Guardian
Israel has hired British public image consultants to give the conflict-battered nation a political facelift for its 60th birthday this year.

Acanchi, which has built its reputation on altering international perceptions of nations such as Lebanon and Bahrain, has been contracted to counter anti-Israel "mindsets". "Our research shows that Israel's brand is essentially the conflict," Ido Aharoni, head of the brand management unit within Israel's foreign ministry, told Israeli daily, Haaretz.
The craziest thing about Israel is that they are more and more beginning to resemble the Nazi regime, which is exactly the thing they are trying to stop happening again, yet they have become it themselves! MINDFUCK!

Of course you have a bad image if you've spent the last half-century illegaly occupying a nation, holding its population prisoner, refusing access to medical care, food, fuel, other luxuries like that. Unfortunately hiring some propaganda artists isn't going to change that fact.

I think the lesson from this is that the best way to maintain a good image is to actually behave in a decent fashion and acknowledge international law. I wonder if I should set up a PR firm and charge Israel £1m to read that sentence.
