Peacewashing

Greenwashing refers to the cloak used by organizations that advertise themselves as environmentally friendly while acting in the opposite way.  It includes setting up a phony movement or advocacy group to make it appear that ordinary people support the corporate agenda.  The Israelis have taken it one step further, and set up a phony ‘peace movement’, replete with dual Israeli-Palestinian ‘peace’ concerts.  The Palestinians weren’t fooled and the trick failed.  See the links at Yayacanada.
