'Make sure people get the right story'

The following commercial came just in: Nice T-shirts in support of Israel's nice and neat operation against the Freedom Flotilla. For a lousy $ 13,95 (discount!) you can buy  shirts with texts like the one below or with marks like 'I joined the Israeli PR team', 'Shayetet 13' etc. This is what the advertisement (in Haaretz): says

Read the truth about Israel, Show your support for Israel

In the age of digital communication, anyone can be a reporter. Make sure people get the RIGHT story! Help keep Israel's enemies from taking over media coverage in times of crisis. This T-shirt features a news camera, cell phone, and laptop – with an anti-Israel story on its screen – under a red "banned" circle with a line through it. The word "STOP" appears above the ban sign and "Media Piracy" below it. "SUPPORT ISRAEL" appears in capital letters on a third line of text. In these turbulent times, it isn't always easy to sort out fact from fiction. War is hell, and media reports are broadcast faster than they can be checked. Don't sit on the sidelines while Israel is slandered! Don't sit quietly by while Israel's case is hijacked by the international media! Keep on top of Israel news, and give your aid to Israel's struggling PR.
In a crisis like Monday night's raid on the flotilla to Gaza, the most important thing you can do to help Israel is make sure people have the correct information. Keep on top of Israeli news, and give your aid to Israels struggling PR.
This exclusive T-shirt designs lets you make your case and influence hearts and minds!

Remember what army units did after the Operations Cast Lead? What will be next? T-shirts praising the airforce after it bombed Tehran?
Yes, it's high time that people get the right story..
