I found the video above on the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit YouTube Channel. I can’t get the sound to play, but the text on the screen says it all.
I want to be clear that I am not posting this video to support the Israeli position, but to show that the IDF is serious about using YouTube as a medium of public diplomacy.
Yigal Schleifer over at Istanbul Calling has an interesting post on the role of new media in conflict zones and as public diplomacy tools.
Schleifer also links to Riyaad Minty’s piece over at Al Jazeera English, which explains how the Israeli government uses Twitter and YouTube to disseminate its message.
