Rumours into lies: The mechanics of the anti-Israel lobby

Read this.

What is shocking (though I really wasn’t that shocked) about this episode of “New Israeli War Crimes” (The Independent) is not the lies themselves but the willingness on the Left to believe them without question.
What is interesting is that this fits neatly into several analyses of the anti-Israel group because the members of this group did not look into the allegations to find why they should be angry but accepted them because they knew that these “crimes” must have happened. This is symptomatic of a hallucinatory way of thinking, where the truth is evident despite the lack of evidence.

    I agree with you. The demonization of Israel is too readily accepted around the world.

    Thanks. The entry wasn’t that well laid out. I’m going to be expanding in a new entry at some point.
