Frank Luntz wrote a paper for his fellow Zionists a few years back. In this paper he specified the kind of language to be used in public utterance for the purpose of eliciting a conditioned response from the American public. For example Israeli PWs should always be described as having been "kidnapped," "abducted," or as being held "hostage." This trickiness is intended to create a mental image of innocent, indeed childlike IDF soldiers who have been victimized by criminals. This is clever. Today Martin Fletcher and Blinken from the NSC were all over Morning Joe using this language to describe an IDF soldier taken prisoner. Blinken demanded that Hamas release this "hostage. " At the same time the point is made that this "abduction" was perpetrated against a group of IDF engineers who were demolishing tunnels inside Gaza DURING THE CEASE FIRE. Lordy! Lordy! How dare the Hamasniks do such a thing! Have they never heard of the rules of Israeli Warfare?
Rule 1 - We do what we please but you must not imitate us, because we are "special" and we want to WIN!!
Ariel Sharon once infamously conducted a major armored offensive operation during a cease fire that Israel had accepted. This was during the Battle of the Chinese Farm in 1973. He defeated the Egyptian Army who stupidly were abiding by the UN sponsored cease fire, and Sharon WON! He won because he was "SPECIAL," but don't you think for a minute you Palestinian terrorists that you can do the same. NO, NO NO! You are not "special." pl
