The results cannot be overlooked:
That Arab Spring is coming along nicely.

Quick! Give ’em another billion or two, give ’em military training, weapons, money and computers! Â Education is the key…. one day, they’ll be just like us. Right?
Jews smell the coffee:
The far leftÂ Washington PostÂ reported:
TheÂ Republican Jewish CoalitionÂ is launching a $6.5 million campaign to convince Jewish voters â€” among the most loyal segments of the Democratic coalition â€” that it is okay to vote against President Obama because of his stand on Israel and the Israeli-Palestinian issue. The campaign is aimed at key Jewish areas in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida, where the RNC hopes to swing just enough votes to tip those states in Mitt Romney’s electoral vote column.
It is an Obama world:
Obama won’t call the War Against Terror the War Against Terror, Holder won’t call our resolved Radical Muslim enemy Radical Muslims, Napolitano won’t call OWS crimes OWS crimes, i could go on…
Three adults and two juveniles were arrested this week after they allegedly terrorized a Wayne County Jewish camp for boys and teenagers, WNEP TV News reported. The five were charged with menacing children at Camp Bonim on three separate occasions.
Â The CommentatorÂ blog drew attention to the fact that the BBC’s online Olympic coverage was manifestly anti-Israel and pro-Palestine: every participating nation had its capital city listed, bar the state of Israel, which was left blank.Â Click to continue
The public relations war against the Jews is working…
Terrorist organizations Hamas, Hizbullah, and Arab nations who butcher their citizens have hired large PR agencies to lobby for them in the press and on the world stage. And the PR agencies go along. Money talks.
The Arab nationsÂ haveÂ hired 10 New PR Agencies since last year â€“ and theseÂ PR firms assist them in selling terror and brutality
The U.S. Public Relations industry is one which is very high profile, but is a tiny, close knit industry, with only perhaps 75 American PR firms having more than 50 employees (i.e. enough scope/influence to represent a foreign government or foreign interests).
Over lunch this week, one of my peers, who like me, owns 1 of the 25 largest USPR Agencies, explained why his firm would no longer work with Jewish organizations and Pro-Israel concerns. He explained there is simply too much money working for Arab organizations and interests,Â between theirÂ front groups, organizations and projects – soÂ from a business perspective, he was no longer working for Pro-Israel or Jewish organizations because that would preclude the Arabs hiring him.
It’s a trend which will grow â€“ and will see Arab interests even more positively portrayed in American media.
In the latest news, Bahrain in the last 12 months has hired at least ten public relations companies. Yes, you read it right â€“ 10 â€“ including Qorvis, the Washington company hired by Saudi Arabia to salvage that kingdom’s reputation abroad after the 9/11 terrorist attack.
The regime of Bahrain, which tortures its own citizens, has an awful human rights record and doesn’t recognize the existence of Israel, also hired Joe Trippi, former campaign manager for Howard Dean’s 2004 presidential bid, Sanitas International, whose partner Christopher Harvin is a former Bush White House aide.
In the “new” Middle East a lot has changed â€“ except forÂ recognition of Israel, and millions are spent by Arab interests on professional public relations campaigns:
Harbour Group, a Washington D.C. lobbying firm, has been hired by the new Libyan Government, As theÂ HillÂ recently revealed, Harbour recently signed a new $15,000 a month contract with the Libyan Embassy.
Patton Boggs, another large K street lobbying group, is also now representing the new Libyan regime.They previously worked with Qaddafi, alongside Cambridge, Massachusetts-based Monitor Group, whichÂ held a hefty $250,000-month contract with Tripoli, recruiting prominent American academics to praise the Libyan government.
It’s nothing new in the Middle East â€“ Arab governments spend lots of money on public relations.
The Syrian regime continues to butcher thousands of itsÂ people in the streets â€“ and it is, by and large, missing from the mainstream media. One of the things a good crisis PR agency is able to do is ensure that negative stories neverÂ get printed.
One day, we will read about who is working for Syria now. A few months ago, hackers released hundreds of e-mails from Syrian President Assad’s office, which revealed a document preparing Assad for his December 2011 interview withÂ ABC‘s Barbara Walters.
This week, the glowing profile and stunning full- page picture of Asma al-Assad, Syria’s First Lady which had appeared inÂ VogueÂ in February 2011 entitled: “Asma al-Assad: A Rose in the Desert” was quietly removed fromÂ Vogue’s website.Â Â VogueÂ wouldn’t comment on why the story was removed â€“ but the story which described her as “glamorous, young, and very chic – the freshest and most magnetic of first ladies,” ran as the Syrian government was butchering anti-regime protesters. APR firm Brown Lloyd James worked for Syria to arrange the storyÂ at the time.
This same company, Brown Lloyd James, worked in the past to boost the regime of Libyan dictator Moammar Qaddafi. They said, “…we assisted the Libyan government in its efforts to reach out to the international political community through the United Nations and to the U.S. political and university community.”
Terrorist organizations Hamas, Hizbullah, and certain Arab nations have hired PR agencies to lobby for them in the press and on the world stage.
Terror groups have engaged reporters and journalists, shared meals and drinks with them and won their favor.
Fenton Communications, a New York Cityâ€“based PR firm, works with the Arab state of Qatar to develop a campaign to essentially delegitimize Israel by orchestrating an international anti-Israel campaign aimed at breaking the blockade of the Gaza Strip.
Fenton Communications also works for “Al Fakhoora,” a Qatar-based pro-Palestinian initiative that has “launched an advocacy campaign to file legal charges against Israel and change the public perception in the West about its actions.” An April 2012 website posting spoke of working with NYC Fenton Communications to help campaign to help end the blockade in Gaza. They continue to assist terror groups openly.
The PLO Mission in the U.S hired Bell Pottinger, a leading International PR agency, to provide “advice on strategic communications, public relations, media relations and congressional affairs.”
U.S. PR giant Bursonâ€“Marsteller, in response to Israel’s request for a meeting, said: “We will not deliver tender to such a project… we are running a commercial venture. If we accept this project, this will create a great amount of negative reactions…Israel is a particularly controversial project.”
There’s a reason the Arabs win in the media â€” they hire communications professionals â€“ they spend money and will continue to win.
In the Middle East, slaughtering of innocent people continues â€“ from Bahrain to Syria -Â and Public Relations pros allow them to continue to sell their stories.
I was saddened this week over lunch when my peer explained to me why his agency would no longer work for Jewish or Israel interests â€“ and whilemy firm,Â 5WPR, wouldn’t work for the barbarians who slaughter innocent people,Â its competitors make millions selling terror and brutality.
Ronn Torossian is CEO ofÂ 5WPR,Â a leading US Public Relations Agency, and author of “For Immediate Release: Shape Minds, Build Brands, and Deliver Results with Game-Changing Public Relations.” The book has been called “the best book ever on Israel public relations” by the Deputy Speaker of the Israel Knesset, Danny Danon.
