Harriet Sherwood at The Guardian alludes to Gould's mention of hasbara:
It's interesting that he mentioned that Israel uses hasbara to "obscure" what is going on but he did, in some way, pay tribute to hasbara:
"Israelis might wake up in 10 years' time and find out that the level of understanding in the international community has suddenly changed, and that patience for continuing the status quo has reduced," he said.Imagine. It could take ten years before enough people start, just start, to wise up to the true nature of the State of Israel for Israelis to be concerned. Hasbara is starting to fail but it's had a remarkable innings.
