A technique of propaganda called "Turnspeak". http://www.eretzyisroel.org/~jkatz/turnspeak.html Interesting site of how to use of a cognitive technique of propaganda called "turnspeak", where you attack someone and then turn it around 180 degrees and claim they attacked you. Because the truth is the exact opposite of the information being disseminated it is psychologically difficult to counter and leads to confusion. The Arab claim that Jews are "Nazis" is not without motive. They are trying to obscure their own close connection with the Nazis. What 'turnspeak' says: (from Arab and Western media): # Israeli violations of human rights are the worst in the world # The Israelis are barbaric in their occupation of the territories # The Israeli methods are worse than the Nazis # Israelis are Nazis # Palestinian holocaust # The Israeli government is a gang of thieves # Israel is poisoning the Palestinian water supply. # Israel is a terrorist state # Israel doesn't want peace # Israel rejects all overtones of peace by Arab countries. # PM Sharon is a war criminal. And what the counterpart says, I find closer to the truth. # Arab States violations of human rights are [some of] the worst in the world # [Some] Islamic States have been barbaric in their treatment of minorities (Kurds, Armenians, etc.), women's rights (honor killings) and criminals (cutting off hands, body parts, beheading...) # Many Arab leaders were Nazi sympathizers, see above. # Jewish holocaust # The Palestinian Authority is a gang of thieves. # Palestinians have on occasion poisoned the Israeli water supply [or poisoned Israeli produce]. # The Palestinian Authority is a terrorist entity # Arafat doesn't want peace # The Arab States reject all overtones of peace by Israel. # Arafat is a war criminal... etc etc, Have a look at the site, there are tens of these so well known themes in a tight packing.
