Neal Sher Trains Israeli Diplomats

NEW YORK Dec. 21, 2004 -- Marco Greenberg, owner of a film production company who has abundant experience in public relations, sits down in front of several Israeli diplomats and spokesmen of government ministries in the conference room of a Manhattan office building.


Former manager Burson-Marsteller,
CEO NYPR involved with Rafi Ron
and QS-3 Security of Mahrev Group.

In an adjacent room, the images are repeated. Here the interviewer is Neal Sher, a consultant on media and lobbying, and a former executive director of AIPAC who was once a Nazi-hunter for the U.S. Department of Justice. "We're losing a lot of boys in Iraq," he says, "and some people claim Israel pushed America into the war in Iraq. Does Israel intend to push America into a war against Iran, on the basis of its nuclear programs?"

Israeli diplomats and government officials come to New York for some tough training on how to deal with American media

Marco Greenberg's  role today is to play an unsympathetic television reporter: first a reporter for the local Channel 4 in Los Angeles, then for Al Jazeera.

A studio atmosphere has been created in the conference room. Standing alongside Greenberg is a cameraman-sound man. The overhead lights are dimmed. In the background, behind the back of the interviewee, a colorful backdrop hangs. Greenberg begins the broadcast:

    "Good morning to all the viewers. With me today is a representative of the Israeli government. Hello, sir ..."

The innocuous preamble quickly gives way to a shower of scathing questions aimed at each of the Israelis, one after another. Why shouldn't the Palestinians be permitted to return to their land and realize the right of return? Why doesn't
Israel improve the situation of Israeli Arabs? Why do you need the wall, which makes life so hard for the Palestinians? Really now - why don't you stop the occupation?

In an adjacent conference room, the images are repeated. Here the interviewer is Neal Sher, a consultant on media and lobbying, and a former executive director of AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) who was once a Nazi-hunter for the U.S. Department of Justice. "We're losing a lot of boys in Iraq," he says, "and some people claim Israel pushed America into the war in Iraq. Does Israel intend to push America into a war against Iran, on the basis of its nuclear programs?"

Waiting off to the side is Elias Buchwald, one of the founders of Burson-Marsteller, the major public relations firm, who is venerated in the industry. When the interview ends, it will be shown to the entire group on a video monitor. The sharp-tongued Buchwald will waste little time in skewering the interviewees for their responses.

Exit poll gives Netanyahu (47%) lead over Shalom (32%).

Israel's Likud votes to elect leader

JERUSALEM (Reuters) Dec. 20 - Benjamin Netanyahu, a former prime minister who opposed Sharon's withdrawal from the Gaza Strip, and Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom, seen as more flexible on possible peacemaking with the Palestinians, are frontrunners in a field of four.

While opinion polls give an edge to Netanyahu, 56, much depends on voter turnout. Pollsters predict it will be low because of widespread party apathy following Sharon's departure from the party he helped found more than three decades ago.
