Please try this. Go to Youtube and search for videos about Zionism or about Israel. Pretty horrible, isn't it?

Here is the "star" film about Zionism that got over 50,000 viewers so far:

Rabbi Weiss, Outside Annapolis Peace Confab, Rips Zionism
On Nov. 27, 2007, in Annapolis, MD, Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss, a spokesman for the Neturei Karta International, ripped ... On Nov. 27, 2007, in Annapolis, MD, Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss, a spokesman for the Neturei Karta International, ripped into Zionism. He blasted the Zionists for its supposed "fearmongering." He also accused the Zionists of "beating" Orthodox Jews in Jerusalem. His remarks were made outside the U.S. Naval Academy, on Randall Street, near Gate I, close to the waterfront, in this port city. A Middle East "Peace" conference was being held inside the Naval Academy. For background on Neturei Karta International, see: http://www.nkusa.org/ and on the "Middle East Peace Conference," check out this analysis: http://www.counterpunch.org/christison11262007.html. (more)

Christison is a known anti-Semite and Neturei Karta are a tiny sect of anti Zionist Jews - but their videos and similar ones dominate the Youtube offerings on Zionism. Why? Because Zionists don't make videos about Zionism! An older film, featuring an interview with an ant-Zionist Rabbi, has attracted over 218,000 viewers. There are lots of these films and they are getting an increasingly large audience.

Here are some more video hits about Zionism

It's about to get worse. Google is trying to implement a "universal search" through its Onebox technology. When you search for Zionism in the regular Web search, Google drops a video box there. Last time I looked, one video about Zionism shown on that page was from the "TurntoIslam" Web site, and the other was a tirade about the "Israel Lobby."

We can't do much about how Google does business. We can make sure that there are a a reasonable quantity of video materials on the Web that are labeled "Zionism" and "Israel" which tell the story of Israel and Zionism fairly. Film distributors, government agencies and non-government Zionist organizations have thousands of hours of wonderful film footage that can be edited into dozens of brief or slightly longer films about Zionism and about Israel. Please, when you make these films, pay attention to quality of audio and video and make them engaging. There are some very well-meaning efforts on YouTube that sound like they were filmed at the end of a long tunnel or in a propeller-driven aircraft. And when you post the film to Youtube, be sure "Zionism" or "Israel" is in the title.

Meanwhile, there are a few videos about Zionism that are not hopefully anti-Zionist. Please link to them and visit them and rate them:
