To update you all on The Campaign For An Israeli International Newschannel.
I am still working away at this but find the Govt. of Israel fairly hard to reach.
I would be grateful if other members could do their bit and write to anyone of any importance or influence that you know in any field who is favourable to the State of Israel to spread this idea.
I enclose a sample letter below which you could use or base your own on.
PLEASE HELP TO GET ISRAEL TO JOIN THE INFORMATION WAR in any way you can,
Subject: Israeli International Newschannel.
Israel is currently losing the International 'Information War'.
Al Jazeera English has now been joined by Press TV Iran English which broadcasts around the world on sattelite and is very popular in Europe with students, followers of ME affairs and Western Muslims.
It spews out 24 hours of anti-Israeli propaganda and part sponsored the 'Viva Palestina' Gaza convoy'.
Even a number of left and liberal young Jews in the UK now support it's daily repeated call for the replacement of Israel with a "Non-racist, non-relegious Palestine State with justice for Palestinians and Jews."
I envisage an independent Israeli Newschannel broadcasting from Jerusalem, London and Washington with an English and Arabic service.
If Richard Murdoch were involved it could not only challenge the above stations but the BBC and CNN and other networks often critical of Israel.
Israel must join the 'Information War' to counteract missunderstandings, missrepresentations, missinformation, ignorance and downright lies aimed at her by her enemies in the International media and politics.
I believe that such a station could help to alter perceptions of Israel and Jews in the Middle East as well as elsewhere.
I would be most grateful if you could acknoledge recipt of this email so I know that you have received the idea.
