Someone's got some 'hasbarah' to do...

The Israeli consular official based in New York approached Maxim six months ago. His proposal: the government and other pro-Israeli groups would fly a camera crew across the Atlantic in an effort to remake the Jewish state's public image. ... Israel's real PR problem, according to Saranga, is that Americans—particularly men aged 18 to 35—either associate the country with war or holy relics, or don't think of it at all. "We have to find the right hook," he says. "And what's relevant to men under 35? Good-looking women."

From the article, here

"Come see our beautiful women... our downtrodden underclass... our frightening beaches... occasional bombers... did we mention the women?"

I can get good looking women anywhere in the world, thank you. And I ain't giving Israel a dime more than I have to (taxes fuel foreign aid, you know) until things change there in a major way.

Is Maxim that desperate for a photo shoot?
