How Israel Lures Hollywood Stars with latest Oscar PR Scheme

February 10, 2016 /

In a bid to buy allies Israel is this year using the Oscars as an opportunity to promote a good image of itself to renowned hollywood stars.
Israel’s tourism ministry slips £38,000 trip to Israel in a gift bag for upcoming Oscar ceremony. The luxury gift voucher to Israel is the most expensive item in this year’s Oscar gift bags, which has been supplied by the Israeli government.
Each voucher includes an all-expenses-paid 10-day luxury trip to Israel for two. The Israeli government is  trying to lure celebrities into visiting the country in hope that their visit will help legitimize Israel’s illegal occupation and encourage their fans to follow suit.
However despite Israel’s efforts, it cannot use PR and tourism to hide away from the reality of its immoral occupation and ongoing crimes.
