Dear posters: Please update the stealth mode annexation procedure from yesterday, on how to creep-carry an annexation, by inserting step # 8: 1. Consistency of harassment - the victims must never feel as if there'll be an end. Because an end means hope and hope can lead to resiliency. 2. Use nationalist/religious thugs - preferably from abroad - allow plausible deniability for the authorities; who, us? 3. Blame the victims; use any and all facts to obfuscate events, reinforcing the message: they brought it on themselves! 4. Belittle any suffering - done daily here and elsewhere using an army of apologists. 5. Minimize violence - bad PR! 6. Destroy credibility of the messengers - cf. Amira & ziffer hate posts coming in. 7. Bury the news. 8. Deflect attention to more positive incidents designed to show the IDF in a better light (e.g., settlers' cuation from a few houses as spectacle sport) Apologies to all for the slight delay in providing this much needed update. Please use!
