Terrorist Theater Tricks


I found a great article by Caroline B. Glick at Jewish World Review about how the West is losing the information war with the terrorists, with the willing aid of most of the Mainstream Media and Non-Government Organizations:

AS IS the case with the Palestinian war against Israel, one of the most notable aspects of Hizbullah's latest campaign against Israel has been the active collaboration of news organizations and international NGO's in Hizbullah's information war against Israel. Like their rogue state sponsors, subversive sub-national groups like Hizbullah, Fatah and Hamas, see information operations as an integral part of their war for the annihilation of Israel and defeat of the West. And their information operations are more advanced than any the world has seen. As becomes more evident with each passing day, they have successfully corrupted both the world media and the community of NGOs that purportedly operate in a neutral manner in war zones.
Rightful praise is directed at the blogosphere for exposing the blatant fabrications of Hamas and Hezbollah, and due scorn heaped upon their media sympathizers and enablers. The war is not being televised; television is just another battlefield.

Is there a way to win the propaganda war? I'm starting to think their isn't. I mean, they were chopping off the heads of innocents while we were putting underwear on terrorists heads... and we came out looking like the bad guys.

How can we even hope to play on such an unlevel field?

As long as the MSM's and NGO's sole intent is to oppose and humiliate the Bush administration, they will continue to be patsies and apologists for the terrorists. Either they don't realize this or they don't care, and I don't know which is worse.
