Will Israel’s war on the bloggers backfire? Yes.

Will the latest war initiative: – Israel recruits ‘army of bloggers’ to combat anti-Zionist Web sites (see two posts previous) – backfire?

Israelis will be exposed to how the rest of humanity sees them. This might be the best thing. No matter how much they disrupt discourse, they will be reading other peoples opinions.

The odds are about a 100 to 1 in quantity of negative versus pro attitudes to Israel. No doubt the bloggers will be given briefs and scripts and expected to behave as the israeli soldiers do. But still, particularly if they read the posts and comments they might change their attitudes.

And (lo and behold) change Israel. The bloggers could likely be wives who are at home – all the better. Lysistrata rules (she who disbands armies). Hope they start at http://www.whatreallyhappened.com .

Lebanon, Georgia, Gaza, all backfired. Israel will learn not to war. Bloggers are as resilient as the resistance. They / we are the intellectual resistance.
