While official PR hypes Israeli bikinis and homosexuals Left-wing rights group B'Tselem to establish U.S. representation

[Dr. Aaron Lerner - IMRA:

While the Israeli Government's PR campaign overseas devotes tremendous
resources to "branding" Israel by showing how its a nice place with girls in
bikinis, homosexuals and high tech, the Left is pouring resources into
trashing Israel overseas on policy related matters.

Problem: the most eye catching girl in a bikini can't do dammage control
against a news making heavily biased Israel trashing campaign by B'Tselem -
only a timely, factual response has a chance. And slamming B'Tselem on a
factual basis requires both the resources and interdepartmental cooperation
that are sorely missing.]

Left-wing rights group B'Tselem to establish U.S. representation

It appears that the Jewish left is bolstering its position in the U.S. -
after the introduction of the new J Street lobby, aimed at countering the
powerful Jewish lobby AIPAC, B'Tselem, a left-wing human rights organization
based in Israel, has sent two official staffers to Washington and New York
for the first time.

"Recognizing the central role of the United States both in terms of its
historic alliance with Israel and its efforts to facilitate a resolution to
the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, B'Tselem is establishing a presence in the
United States to inform the political and public discourse in this country
and to ensure that human rights are a centerpiece of the bilateral
relationship and all diplomatic efforts", read the organization's invitation
to the Capitol Hill reception.

The B'Tselem staffers intend to inform the policy makers, American public
and the American Jewish community about human rights conditions in the
Palestinian territories.
