Anyone who wants to get inside the head of the Israel lobby mus read this
document. Imagine for
a moment you're a general about to embark on a decisive military
campaign and your intelligence service secures a copy of your
opponent's entire campaign strategy. You open it and you see his battle
plans laid out before you, key forces, weaponry, lines of attack,
points of weaknesses, etc. You suddenly understand just how weak his
forces are and precisely how to mercilessly attack and eviscerate him.
The plan makes you understand that his forces are largely based on
artifice and sham. It gives you confidence that you are entirely on the
right course and tells you how to stay on that course. Victory is
assured, your enemy's defeat certain.
Douglas Bloomfield and Newsweek have done pretty close to that against the Israel lobby. Specifically, they've exposed a secret hasbara handbook written for The Israel Project by star Republican marketer, Frank Luntz.
The oddly-named Global Language Dictionary (pdf (http://www.newsweek.com/id/206021)) is a veritable goldmine of arguments, strategy, tactics. At 116 pages, it's not for the faint of heart.

It's hard going, Magda. It's all about lies, deception and propaganda. Clever use of words to disguise the truth.

Israel doesn't want peace, they want all the land they can get. They see themselves as God's chosen people and they want a modern day empire for their self-glorification. They also have the potent war machine and misguided support of the west that they need to achieve it.

I noticed that Newsweek have deleted or moved their story on the Hasbara manual. I found another copy and have up loaded it here. Well worth a read if you want to effectively deal with the Israeli propaganda machine. This is the manual which Israel apologists use to gloss over their crimes and put a kinder face on the indefensible. AKA the Hasbara manual.
