Israel uses YouTube in PR war

Thursday, March 27, 2008 |  by Staff Writer  

The Israeli government recently made use of the hugely popular YouTube online video hosting site to call attention to the brutality of Arab Muslim terrorism practiced against Israel's Jews.

Israeli business newspaper The Marker reported this week that earlier this month someone in the Prime Minister's Office acting under direct orders posted three videos to YouTube containing graphic footage of the massacre of eight young Jewish bible students by an Israeli Arab terrorist in Jerusalem.

An Israeli government source acknowledged that the videos were posted as part of an official PR campaign, and said that YouTube will become a regular part of Israel's efforts to raise awareness of the threats facing its citizens and the legitimacy of its own war on terror.

The videos can be viewed below, but readers are warned that both contain graphic footage.

Stop the terror, stop the bloodshed

Emergency call, March 7, Jerusalem
