Terrorist Public Relations Campaigns & Great Quotes


  • Yes, a major media outlet, the AFP ran this week spoke of a Hamas PR campaign — with a headline reading: “PR campaign hits roadblock after Sinai attack”. AFP lauds Hamas for a campaign which reads: “We have carried out 800 open-heart surgeries, regulated traffic, and built 44 schools.” AFP which refers to the “Hamas government”, throughout the entire lengthy article doesn’t refer to Hamas as a terrorist organization once, and describes a “Hamas PR campaign which combines the concepts of environmental responsibility with that of opposition to Israel, which maintains a partial blockade on the territory.”

Hamas is listed by the US on its U.S. State Department list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations, is an organization devoted to violence against Americans and Israel, receives support from Iran and is widely regarded as a terrorist organization. On 2 May 2011, Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh condemned the killing of Osama bin Laden, as he praised Bin Laden, the founder of the jihadist organization al-Qaeda, as a “martyr” and an “Arab holy warrior”

Simply amazing that even the world’s most heinous terror organizations view publicity as vital. “By the skillful and sustained use of propaganda, one can make a people see even heaven as hell or an extremely wretched life as paradise.” Adolf Hitler
