Israel's psychological warfare
We've heard about the flyers the Israeli army is littering Gaza with-telling people Hamas is to blame for their woes, not their f-16s and cluster bombs.
Now, they have taken to robo-calling the citizens of Gaza ala Hilary Clinton, at all times of the night and day.
My father has received a number of calls- including one as we finsihed another CNN interview, and we were on Skype. He tried to put the phone on speaker for me. The rough translations:
"urgent message: warning to the citizens of Gaza. Hamas is using you as human shields. Do not listen to them. Hamas has abandoned you and are hiding in their shelters. Give up now.."
He hung up in disgust, not wanting to hear the rest.
The army has also been calling people to let them know their houses will be bombed.
People have stopped answering their phones now, and do not take calls from unknown numbers, says my father.
Psychological warfare: pictures my father took of TV messages the Israeli army has been broadcasting on Palestinian stations. The captions say: "Hamas leadership: your time is running out".
