Video: Hamas' response to 'We con the world'

It's taken a couple of months, but Hamas' supporters have posted their response to Caroline Glick's 'We con the world.' Caroline appears only briefly in this video. The star is Aliza Landes, who is in charge of new media at the IDF's North American desk - she's the young lady in IDF uniform you'll see several times in this video.

I actually got this from Aliza's Dad, Richard Landes, of Second Draft and al-Dura fame.

Let's go to the videotape.



What this shows is how much of an impact people like Aliza Landes and Caroline Glick and those of us who spread their work around the internet are having on the terms of the debate of the Israeli-Arab conflict. And we're at least faster about getting parodies out than they are.

That's actually pretty well done...who would have thought Islamofacists had a sense of humour? I can't wait for the next one..."Bin Laden sings the blues"

I think its imitation humour: you can feel it's heavy with anger and frustration. That's not the case with Caroline Glick's stuff. Hers is light and clever with a touch of Monty Python!

Hamas has realized that humor is essential to winning over the West.

Won't be long now before we see a Hamas version of LatmaTV.

Heh

What kind of disturbs me is how much of a "mirror image" effect there is going on.

Israel makes a parody, the anti-Israel coalition responds with their own.

The anti-Israel coalition comes out with a video attacking Israel, a pro-Israel version is released.

I just found out the other day that the "I Am Israel" video was originally a response to an anti-Israel version by the exact same name.

(Note: I'm talking mainly in terms of the internet phenomenons, but you also see this with the type of watchdog groups formed and in many other ways)

Just wondering how y'all feel about the fact that this video is not viewable in Israel (and a couple other countries in the EU, but not all or most of it). Do you think this merits censorship? Do you think such censorship reflects well on those who engage in it?
