But there's the rub, Joe. These sites are not about 'truth' but about
persuasion. They use the tactics of propaganda. Just to be clear: I am not
just referring to pro-Israeli or anti-Islamic sites, but to pro-Arab and
anti-Israeli sites as well.
That is precisely why primary sites and a comprehensive consideration of the
issues are vital. In your biased postings of anti-Muslim and pro-Israeli
materials and in your reluctance to answer our specific questions about
them, you put yourself in a position of just being a megaphone to the
propagandists. There is not doubt that you believe that what you say is
truthful, but that is precisely the aim of propaganda -- to get otherwise
naive people repeating the propaganda as if it were the truth.
