The Israeli government has hired a top American public relations consultant to help it deal with the international media and improve Israel’s image abroad.
The consultant, Michael Klepper, is expected to arrive in Israel within a few weeks to advise officials, especially government ministerial spokesmen, on how deal to with the American media.
The Government Press Office insisted that the timing of Klepper’s visit has nothing to do with media backlash against Israel caused by the expulsion of 415 Palestinians to Lebanon.
