I had read years ago about how supposedly, the Israeli government encouraged their supporters to write letters to the editor of newspapers around the world to support the Israeli position on various issues. I always considered this to be paranoia put forth by the types who believe that the US government is beaming messages subconciously to them via their televisions.
Well, to my surprise, I found this web site:
which asks people to sign up to support Israel by responding to online articles and blogs. Unfortunately, since I have a Mac, I can't download the tool which gives you the alerts.
Now, I am also wondering if "the other side" also engages in this type of practice and if so, I would really be interested in knowing who "the other side" is.
This also lends credence to my theory that it is PR that will win or lose this war.
