The trouble is, there are good things to say about Israel, but particularly with Bibi's extremist anti-peace pro-settlement government, all the bad things are so much more obvious and easy to say. I personally might respond to genuine messages about israel's vibrant multi-cultural society, which I know exists, if I didn't see much louder messages of Jewish chauvinism from the government. In this context, clumsy hasbara alone is not enough. "This poem demonstrates how Israel is a peaceful Democratic nation as it demonstrates how the Jew [in the poem] is yearning for the time when she and the Egyptian [in the poem] could be together as friends in peace. This portrays how Israel has [established] a foundation for peace, yet she has no partner for peace." Yeah, right, because Shas, Bibi and Lieberman are just dying to get down and dirty with the girls in Cairo while pleding eternal love and peace.
