    A country,especially Israel that suffers from anti-Semitism,can win the war militarily but lose the PR war.This has been the case in every war Israel has fought since the moral and military victory of the 6 Day War,the last time I remember Israel being seen as "the good guy" in a war.One of the most frustrating things for me as an American-Israeli living in the States is to watch the news and to see nothing but Israel's enemies in report after report.I must say that this time it has improved slightly with Dan Gillerman everywhere he can possibly be including all of the all-important Sunday morning shows,but it's not enough when you've got Palestinian and now Lebanese and Syrian reps on every show of the 24 hour news cycle along with photos of dead children in Qana...Israel must do better to counter them. The PR effort has to be just as important as the war itself because in these times of instant mass media it is.Israelis need to be on every show,all day and night telling the story.
