This year's Israeli annual attack features a massive and unprecedented pr campaign, which appears especially to target the western audience. The Israeli government has obviously learned its lessons from previous wars, and is planning to win the heart and mind of every single one of us.
While the list of its criminal actions in Gaza are growing by day, the Israeli military uploads fun little videos of its heroic and humane activities on Youtube. On its special page, you can watch how soldiers admit wounded children for health care, and how the brave pilots eliminate Hamas terrorists, and the terrorists only, using precision bombardments.
Also, the army's English website features a banner, showing female Israeli soldiers in nice and peaceful poses (check also this interesting story on Haaretz). Gabriel, one of the Jews sans frontieres, is quite correct to note that "Israel is the only country in the Middle East where the government uses feminine sexuality to market mass murder".
