column on virtual war & Gaza

Why not pick up a truly important topic, the current conflict in Gaza. In my column I discuss the use of social media by the IDF (Israeli Defense Force) and how they draw on game inspired themes, images & rhetorics in their propaganda war. In the column I talk about this Youtube clip called “Pillar Of Defense: Third Day Recap”.

De [clip] is exemplarisch, omdat deze staat voor de verdere versmelting van de (beeld)taal van oorlog met de beeldtaal van televisienieuws, games en nu ook social media.
