Israel’s Army of Spin-doctors is Doomed to DefeatJonathan Cook - Information Clearing House "In the latest offensive, the education ministry has launched a compulsory hasbara course for Israeli students travelling abroad. All youth delegations are now required to learn how to justify to outsiders Israel’s policies in the occupied territories. According to officials, the students must challenge those who “seek to delegitimize Israel”. It is yet more evidence that hasbara has become a national obsession in Israel – and that the line between support for one’s country and support for the subjugation of another people has been erased. Some 85 per cent of Israelis tell pollsters they are keen to become hasbara ambassadors for the Netanyahu government." ca8/7/2015

Khader Adnan for Presidentnadiaharhash - In a cynical scene, Saeb Eriqat mentioned the Khader Adnan’s crisis and hunger strike yesterday after a rich Iftar yesterday, condemning Israeli coercive laws and behaviors against Palestinian prisoners.
