What an out of context commercial. This is why media and PR need to be on the same knowledge page.
I know for a fact that Todd and I have excellent photos of the Torah being marched around the OWS camp and the unfurling the next day. I also know that Josh was recording video the first night of the dancing and marching around the camp. So we have great footage that needs to be put centralized for press. A short film can be made and put upon you tube and our website.
Our greatest asset is that we can counter these distortions of media through the peoples channels. Online. It reaches millions of more people than a 30 second spot on a TV show. These things will continue to happen. Yes.
But this is exactly why we are making contacts and continue to reach out to as many groups as possible. This is the exact reason patience and building a coalition is so important instead of breaking apart and tilting windmills in Quixote type formations. If we create, have conversations and mobilize our Jewish/Israeli friends this is only a few phone calls and a pr message then move on to the next point in our movement.

my point in posting the commercial was only to make the media working group aware of what is going on - i don't believe the message the commercial is spreading. i know OWS is not anti-semitic. and i also do not want this israel v. palestine narrative to derail what we are doing and why we are here.
i was simply shocked that this kind of campaign was launched, that's really it. especially because it is so patently false. so i apologize if posting that initial email was off-topic or somehow disruptive. i was under the impression that part of what we do is make each other aware of what's happening on the web and on radio and tv so that we can - as a group - effectively answer it or ignore it.

We need to see a flood of flags from everywhere.... Stop feeding into the nonsense and these false flag attempts to divert your focus from the goal at hand please!!!!! I plead with you all.... This will be our collective downfall if we do not warn each other of these attempts by planted jackals. They will come in all forms from media to financial and food aid to infiltrators in working groups and informants in facilitation. This is war and it will not stop!!!! Its only going to get worse. Chess requires a strong attention to detail and so does war. This horizontal battlefield we are waging war on requires us to realize the traps that have been laid out in front, to the sides, behind, and far ahead of us; and properly prepare to avoid or move around those traps without engaging the enemy. We must conserve our energy and strength for the long run because this isnt ending no time soon. It will fast!!! If we dont remain on the same page and continue to let the 1% and there power plays affect us. Just keep your head up, eyes open and remain on point at all times...
