    Israel is the victim of foreign news reporters who don't speak the local languages and write to please their liberal editors. The Rev. Wrights of the USA do the rest. The English, however, have a direct line in to the minds of Americans with TV about the Royals and WWII and used, old and sappy TV family comedies and BBC bigoted anti-Israeli pro Pal news. It really influences Americans to admire the Brits. The French have entered Am TV with language learning programs. The Japanese are masterful with entire TV chanels depicting nature, customs and crazy lovable food shows. Russia has a news chanel the old left would love. Israel has nothing comperable at all. Israelis think that because they talk restaurant menu english they can speak persuasively for the Israeli cause to the Goyisha mind; they don't. That needs to change and its not politicans who will do it (or those pervasive TV tourist travel ads w/o meaningful content). We need programming in english or w subtitles.
