HASBARA

By Ted Belman

I am part of a list serve dedicated at first to fighting the Goldstone Report. It has now morphed into a group of bloggers, government reps and journalists who exchange ideas and information with each other.

Yesterday we held a meeting in Jerusalem to discuss strategy for making a difference.

In attendence were Melanie Phillips, Lori Lowenthal Marcus, founder of Z Street, Michael Totten who writes for Commentary among others, Jan Jacobson who focuses on lawfare and Gerald Adler from the UK, all of who were visiting.

The locals included Richard Landes from Second Draft and Augean Stables, Barry Rubin from RubinReports, Jonathan Spyer from GLORIA, Aliza Landes who is head of New Media at the IDF, Carl from Israel Matzav, Yisrael Medad from My Right Word, Aussie Dave from IsreallyCool, Elliot from The Elder of Ziyon, David Frankfurther from Letter from Israel and Anne Hertzberg of NGO Monitor.

I don’t know if we accomplished anything but it was nice getting together. Regular meetings are planned.

  1. Joy, I’ll second that. Good to see some talent getting together.

    Ted, any chance on getting Yamit (Uncle Nahum) involved?
