Chuck Carlson introduces a new word to describe the unofficial spoken language of the State of Israel.  Israel has used "Zionese" to defend its actions in Gaza in Dec., 2008.  "Zionese" is the art of telling a story that most will reject but, by repeating it so often, many will believe it.  Recently, Bob Simon of CBS 60 Minutes challenged "Zionese" in a most remarkable story, "Christians of the Holy Land."  Mr. Simon interviewed Michael Oren, the Israeli Ambassador to the United States, who did not want the segment aired and demonstrated what 'Zionese"is all about.
