Well, the Israeli government decided that if you can’t stop the Palestinian rockets from being launched at Israeli civilians, it might as well use those civilians for propaganda purposes. So, for example, when a young Israeli boy in Sderot had his arm blown halfway off today by yet another Palestinian rocket launched at civilian Israelis, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs was all over it. They sent out emails, contacted the press and made sure photos were available of the boy’s younger sister as she waited in the hospital during his surgery.
Sure, why not?
And to show the excellence of the Ministry’s operation, they even got some graphic artist to design a logo so the Israelis can brand the attacks against Israelis all over the media. Here is their logo:
Cute, huh? You get the evil missile that does not say “Palestinian Rocket” on it and the quaint Israeli family of four with flared bottom jeans. It’s black and white so it’s easily reproduceable and best of all, it doesn’t mention Palestinians directly but lists the “Hamas War against Israel.” No mention of any other Palestinians or the history of attacks on Israeli civilians because, well, because they’re negotiating with those folks.
Would somebody please fire the genius who came up with this?
