    Israel must be losing too many battles in the war to win global public opinion. This is the conclusion to be drawn from the release of a 66-page document by the Tel Aviv-based Reut Institute, which was followed quickly by a similar report from the Jerusalem Centre for Public Affairs (JCPA). Both documents must be analysed in the context of the media campaign engineered by Israel's extreme right-wing Foreign Minister, Avigdor Lieberman, to improve Israel's shattered image which plunged to an all-time low during 2010.

    Both reports undertake to address what their authors claim is an urgent existential threat to Israel; they call it the threat of "de-legitimization". What is telling about the two documents is that they address only the symptoms and not the causes of the dilemma facing the Zionist state.

    Indeed, our book tells us that this will be so, and with faith, we continue...

    Introduction
    This draft document is a product of concern, hope, and confidence. Concern because our analysis covering the years 2006-2009 led us to conclude that Israel is subject to a systemic and systematic assault on its political and economic model, which aims to precipitate its implosion. This campaign is inspired by the collapse of countries such as the Soviet Union and apartheid South Africa.

    This assault is executed by two forces acting in parallel and with cooperation. The first is the Resistance Network, led by Iran, Hamas, and Hezbollah, that rejects Israel's right to exist based on Arab and Islamist nationalist-religious ideology. The second is the Delegitimization Network, which is primarily concentrated in a few major cities such as London, Brussels, and the San Francisco Bay Area, and denies Israel's right of existence based on political, philosophical, or historical arguments.

    Er, 33 member states, representing the most powerful countries in the world, of the prestigious Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development just unanimously accepted Israel as a member, signifying Israel as a leading global economy.

    Thus, you are PWNed. :clap2:

    It would be more difficult to de-legitimize Israel if it were legitimate in the first place.

    Which other country, other than Israel, in the world has both League of Nations and UN legitimization?

    Not one. Suck on it, jihadi. :clap2:

    I've posted many times the borders of the Jewish National Home [Israel] established by the League of Nations in 1922, from the Jordan River to the Med. Sea, from Galilee to the Negev.

    Forget so soon? :lol:

    However, your "Palestine" doesn't even appear on the UN map...:lol:

    because it is.

    ... which has nothing whatsoever to do with terrorist sympathizer propaganda sites.
