People Speaking - Stones

— "Hello, N. speaking ... No, he's not here right now ... I don't know, maybe he's throwing stones in some settlement."

I despise the people in the media who thoughtlessly give everyone who has any sign of identification with the settlements this bad image, and in the same time admire their effectiveness at influencing people's minds. Very controversial passage follows: Goebbels' ideology may be compared (not similar!) to settlers', but the effectiveness of his actual work is comparable to Channel 2, Maariv and Yediot. And technically they are not even state owned. And our press is officially considered quite free. Democracy at its best...
