Israel caught creating propaganda, lying about sources

"The Foreign Press Association strongly condemns the use of photos and video material shot by foreign journalists, now being put out by the (military) spokesman's office as 'captured material'," the FPA said in a statement. It said the military was selectively using footage to back its claims that commandos opened fire only after being attacked.

It really looks like the Israeli's are using every element of propaganda and media they can to get people on their side. I don't really see a centralized propaganda effort like this from the Palestinian side.

If Israel is so innocent why do they have to shove this fact down our throats?

This was seen and reported by ATS members watching it live. The whole shooting before boarding thing. It was moot from the get go but folks made opinionated arguments without allowing themselves objectivity.

We also knew about the disinfo.

But, using objectivity, all sides of the conflict are using media to shape their way of thinking.

The problem (for the TPTB) is the global ability to go beyond nation-like views, and see things form a humanistic approach versus a one sided, agenda ridden one.

Digest this: The U.S. won't restrict Israel but it will allow news such as this to hit msm. This gives way to the notion that, whilst clearly not willing to take action, they are willing to let a certain amount of propaganda leak and be heard, somewhat venting frustrations while not really doing anything about it.

This is a recurring theme, from an objective standpoint.
