I’m still in the desert and will be for the rest of the week. My internet access is spotty, so liveblogging the Israeli/Hamas war is pretty much out of the question. Too bad, as one of the interesting things is the IDF’s information operation. In the 2006 Hezbollah War, Hezbollah had very sympathetic coverage by most of the international press and Israel clearly lost the information campaign. This time, the IDF has started their own YouTube channel as a means of getting their side of the story out.
Of course, as Confederate Yankee points out, they are already getting hit with TOS complaints in an attempt to shut them down, but as of yet, most videos are being put back up.
Let’s take a look at what the Israelis are sharing with us, shal we?
