Israel’s Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon’s Story of Stuff



Using a model that will be instantly recognizable to anyone who’s seen Annie Leonard’s Story of Stuff videos about environmental depredation or one of those UPS Whiteboard ads, Israel’s Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon appears alongside sketchbook animation in a video that asserts that:

(1) Israel’s settlements are in no way illegal,
(2) Israel’s presence in the West Bank is not an occupation but merely settlement activity taking place in “disputed territory,” and
(3) the mere act of referring to “1967 Borders,” as President Barack Obama did in his speech at the State Department in May, is “politically incorrect.”

With Ayalon’s former chief of staff David Segal set to take over Israel’s consulate in Los Angeles in August, the Deputy Foreign Minister takes to the interwebs in this StandWithUs-produced video. Is Ayalon preaching to the already converted? Or could this video help change minds? See for yourself:
