Haaretz -- Published 13:24 14.02.12,Latest update 13:24 14.02.12

First:

Americans of Hispanic origin, the fastest-growing ethnic group in the United States, are relatively hostile towards Israel because they are ignorant about Middle East affairs and are influenced by traditional anti-Israeli Catholic views, according to the Israel advocacy group, The Israel Project (TIP).
Well nothing like killing two birds with one stone !! (Healthcare statement ?)




In a media briefing in New York to mark the resignation of TIP’s founder, Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi, the group’s Executive Director for the Americas, Allan Elsner, said that Israel is more popular among older Americans, Republicans, conservatives and Evangelicals and less popular among “liberal elites”, African-Americans and Democrats. Elsner said that the Israel Project was focusing its efforts on “groups where we have a problem.”
Wheeeew !!



In the global arena, according to TIP’s Executive Director of Global Affairs, Laura Kam, the Project has found anti-Israeli public opinion in Europe difficult to budge and is therefore devoting most of its efforts on the continent to working with local Jewish communities.
Now the Europeans are guilty as well ?



At the same time, TIP is rapidly expanding operations in Russia, China and India where people “are less interested in the conflict and more in Israeli innovation,” Kam said. But the same approach of trying to “brand” Israel by highlighting its creativity and innovation is “a complete fiasco” in the United States, according to Laszlo Mizrahi, because Americans “are not interested.” In America, she says, one has to focus on Israel’s “quest for peace, shared values and the common front in the fight against terrorism.”
Well, what do the Chinese really think ?

Relax just some evil trying to break up allies which share similar bonds of freedom of information, not living in fear, freedom of religion and basically living well with our neighbours. Ah Zionists, I truly pitty you sad sick people.

It' actually a fair statement and quite true yet their (Hispanic) Spanish and Italian cousins are not so anti-semitic as they once were.

Well, someone has to be a "hateful" Hispanic..., so it may as well be me.

For all you ultra-conservative phobic types, a preemptive apology if this offends you.

... a rebuttal.



Let's dissemble the article.....


Haaretz.com, the online edition of Haaretz Newspaper in Israel, and analysis from Israel and the Middle East. Haaretz.com provides extensive and in-depth coverage of Israel, the Jewish World and the Middle East, including defense, diplomacy, the Arab-Israeli conflict, the peace process, Israeli politics, Jerusalem affairs, international relations, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, the Palestinian Authority, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, the Israeli business world and Jewish life in Israel and the Diaspora.


Shall we begin?

The Haaretz Newspaper in Israel..., founded in 1918, it is published in Hebrew, English. (en.wikipedia.org...)

As a tool of persuasive political analysis it is a high-quality instrument; however it is clearly a vehicle of public opinion-crafting and social engineering (in as mush as can be said, many - if not most, such news 'sources' regardless of nationalism or ideology can be similarly described.)

OK, "news" source = reputable, generally mainstream editorial - political focus.


Our author, Chemi Shalev, was once a guest-commentator on CNN, Sky, CBS and other television networks during times of Middle East crisis; some of his most recent articles are listed below:

The Holocaust is a good reason, not a bad excuse, for attacking Iran

Santorum’s trifecta: He smashed Romney, squashed Gingrich, and beat the predictions

Don’t always knock the media’s bias and double standards on Israel: you’ll miss them when they’re gone

U.S. love for Israel comes with a price

Obviously the author is a serious well-regarded writer with journalistic leanings.

So now.. let's look at the information conveyed....

Like many good journalist, Mr. Shalev ensures that the audience's "rubric" is embodied in the first paragraph of the article...


Americans of Hispanic origin, the fastest-growing ethnic group in the United States, are relatively hostile towards Israel because they are ignorant about Middle East affairs and are influenced by traditional anti-Israeli Catholic views, according to the Israel advocacy group, The Israel Project (TIP).


Let's isolate the elements of the message:

  • Hispanics = fastest-growing ethnic group in the United States
  • Hispanics = relatively hostile towards Israel
  • Hispanics = ignorant about Middle East affairs
  • Hispanics = influenced by traditional anti-Israeli Catholic views

The above declarations are brought to us via "The Israel Project (TIP)"
---------------------------------------------------------------

Interestingly, this article is about a tangential comment made during a press conference which had nothing to do with Hispanics, but was really to mark the resignation of TIP’s founder, Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi ( former legislative assistant to the US Congress, media "talking head" and darling of the pro-Israeli lobby.)

The founder of the TIP in 2002, will be leaving in five months.

... NOWHERE IN THIS ARTICLE DOES ANY COMMENT ABOUT HISPANICS APPEAR - EXCEPT THE FIRST PARAGRAPH AND TITLE!

A visit to the TIP website will lead you to a document they post which directly contradicts the article's focal point.

www.theisraelproject.org...

------------------------------------------------------------------

  • Hispanics = fastest-growing ethnic group in the United States
  • Hispanics = relatively hostile towards Israel
  • Hispanics = ignorant about Middle East affairs
  • Hispanics = influenced by traditional anti-Israeli Catholic views

So, someone, somewhere needs to relay the sentiment that relatively hostile ignorant anti-Israeli Catholic Hispanics are propagating like cockroaches, eh....?

Now why would anyone want to convey that message?

1. israel is was a "country" created by a powerful nation, kicking out other people, either by mutual religion sympathies, and/or by mutual interest . Why we don't leave then alone, stop putting our nose where we are not invited? and deal w/ our own domestic problems. Other smart countries are just watching, not us, our military contracts, and politics are so powerful and corrupted that they want to intervine in every spot in the globe. Let israels deal deal w/ their own things, we already gave then enough........... their land.

Just like the US didn't want communism near their borders , the muslims don't want the israels around then, figure why?
