The Propaganda Video

Flag of Israel with the Mediterranean sea in t...


I AM ISRAEL. The video begins with a beautiful Star of David flag filling the screen, dramatic but eerie music building up to a crescendo with a rolling stream of  words citing the history of Israel since 1947. Many facts, but whether true or not, the video is so inflammatory, there is no question that to show or post it would  be unwise. But more importantly, there is a feeling in my heart, that I’ve seen this kind of film before.

The heart pounding screech, like fingernails on a blackboard, assault the emotions. Infuriating in its egregious and ugly images. Tanks, guns, children, bulldozers, brute force against women and infants, flames, forced entry. Terror in its most base and vile form, but without masks, in Israeli uniform in broad daylight.

Several friends from the Middle East have sent it to me with impassioned hearts, I’m sure, hoping that I will post in on my own Facebook page to my 500 plus friends. But, I feel an inner warning that this video crosses the line into insanity. That it would stir such vicious response, such a call to arms, that I can’t be responsible.

Didn’t someone on the “other” side, put up the cash for millions of copies of the “Obsession” video to be included in the Sunday Papers in the Mid West?  This video was just as inflammatory, much more so because it compiled all the Muslim world‘s fanatic acts into one, with the purpose of frightening Americans.

The Propaganda video I received seems more like a cry for help, or a last-ditch effort to defend oneself against the Western Media and the Palestinians unsuccessful effort to get their message out. But, there remains the outstanding stigma attached to anything  so blatantly anti-Jewish, that I can’t bring myself to publish this video.

Regardless of  how true, based on real documented events as it is, to put it together with such music and narrated hatred, I can’t become a part of publishing it. I want so much to get the Palestinian message out, but not at the cost human decency, which I would do if I crossed this line.
