August 7, 2006:
Israel has been hacking into Hizbollah radio and TV broadcasts, and inserting messages that point out mistakes Hizbollah has made, or lies Hizbollah has been pushing, or simply ridiculing the Islamic radicals. Israeli Information War teams have also spammed Lebanese cell phone users with anti-Hizbollah voice mail and text messages. This campaign began the last week of July, and appears to be continuing.
This sort of thing confirms to the Arabs that the Israelis are evil, in league with the devil and thus in possession of some kind of magic. Other Arab pundits point out that Arab countries need to increase their spending on education, so that Arab geeks can hack Israeli communications. But the magic angle tends to be more popular with editors and government censors.
