  • Propaganda lies in a disguise

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    May 21, 2013 | 12:22 pm

    Muhammad al-Durrah, the little boy who became the symbol of the Al-Aqsa Intifada, is returning to the headlines after a decade. A photo of him, crying, leaning against a wall with his father trying to protect him from the fire of IDF soldiers, was taken on September 30th 2000...

    By Ben Spielberg

    Despite all the propaganda, I never believed that drugs could harm my brain. The egg thrown on a frying pan commercial was too hyperbolic to be realistic, the old Peter Jennings-MDMA-brain-lesions theory was long debunked, and all the writers and musicians I...

  • Propaganda film disguised horrors of Terezin

    October 2, 2008 | 12:44 am

    The film is grainy and in black-and-white. It jumps about, slowing down at odd moments and growing dim occasionally. But it's the people that hold your attention.

    They walk about, wearing fashionable clothes, nodding a stiff hello when they spot a friend. They watch a soccer match,...

    The curtain parts to reveal a stage in the shape of a huge swastika. There is a perceptible gasp from the mostly older matinee audience in the London suburb of Watford.

    By Ira Forman

    October 12, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    It's that time of year again -- election time -- when White House officials trigger homeland security alerts and talk about the threat of Osama bin Laden. It's also the time of year when Jewish Republicans bring out the bogeyman of the bad, bad Democrats who want to harm the State of...

    All those people who say "Munich" reaffirms the universal truth that "violence begets violence" should think hard about the

    So much for universal truths.

    Gandhi said, "An eye for an eye will make the whole world blind,"...

    April 3, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    On a sleepy, spring-like Sunday in Orange, California, it is easy to forget about it.

    It was straight out of central casting; a Fellini B movie, if ever there was one. Only it wasn't a movie. It was ugly, and it wasn't supposed to be entertainment. It was the way people behaved toward us -- the L.A. Pro Israel Rally Committee (LAPIRC) -- at the Not in Our Name...
