    In this PR battle again the Palestinians well tuned propaganda machine has won. Israel sadly caught to late in game to catch up to a well refined PR machine started in the mid-1980's and has been playing catch-up ever since. Similar to "talking points" memos sent out daily by both the Democrats and Republican parties here in the U.S., the Palestinians started to refine this technique under Arafat's Mother-in-law in the mid-1980's and Israel gave the Palestinians a 10-12 year head start before they began responding. Now it seems the Palestinian PR machine always gets the jump on Israel. As with this phony Jerusalem issue. The housing units "plan" was simply spoken of...and in an area of Jerusalem that is intended to go to Israel in any final settlement...and bingo!! the Palestinians made it look, falsely, like land theft. It wasn't!! Israel needs to improve its technique at getting out the truth about these issues quickly and loudly or they may be doomed to many more PR failures.
