Bill Warner asserts that "Israel is losing the propaganda war, hasbarah, and for a very good reason." Israelis are not inclined to deal with propaganda because they would have to examine Islam. They would have to "face the facts that the Koran and the Sunna (the actions and words of Mohammed) are filled with invectives against the Jews." They would have to grasp that "... when the Jews of Medina rejected Mohammed as a prophet they were all enslaved, exiled, murdered and robbed — all acts of jihad. These were not historical acts, but perfect examples of Islamic action towards Jews models prescribed for Muslims to follow up to the present time." Jews also need to understand that resurgent Islam isn't just targetting them. "[T]he Israel/Palestinian conflict is no different than the jihad in Kashmir, India, the Philippines, or in dozens of fronts in Africa" but global jihad does target Jews, and this has to be acknowledged before intelligent and incisive action can be taken. Praying for some flabby peace won't work. People don't fight effectively against a threat until they acknowledge the threat is real.
