Israel’s Online Response to Palestinian UN Vote

September 22, 2011 11:43 by

Even in the realm of public diplomacy, Israel is singled out for trying to defend itself. Take this article from Politico that profiles the IDF’s New Media Desk:

The IDF is also proactive on social media, with accounts on Twitter (in English, French and Arabic), the photo-sharing website Flickr and the video-posting website YouTube. “We just launched a [Facebook] page a month ago – now we have over 127,000 ‘friends,’” [Lt. Col. Avital] Leibovich bragged.

Griechen wollen Moschee für 16 Mio bauen

Sie stehen kurz vor dem Staatsbankrott. Seit 2008 halten sie ihren aufgeblähten Staats-Apparat nur mit EU-Geldern, die zu einem großen Teil aus den Taschen der deutschen Steuerzahler stammen, über Wasser. Aber ein Land, das seinen Beamten auch noch Händewasch-Prämien, Belohnungen für Pünktlichkeit, Kopierzulagen und jährlich bis zu 18 Monatsgehälter aus dem europäischen Subventionstopf zahlt, hat natürlich auch noch Kohle für eine Riesenmoschee übrig. Man gönnt sich ja sonst nichts. Wie Kopp-Online berichtet, soll jetzt in Athen für 16 Millionen Euro
