Lethal Narratives:

A story told in order to accuse someone else (a foe) of malicious and malevolent behavior, designed to create hatred and a desire for revenge among the “home” audience of the tale, and to create paralysis and guilt among the enemy targets. “The Face of the Enemy” as a weapon of cognitive war.

Lethal Journalism:

A pattern of journalistic activity whereby, wittingly or unwittingly, information professionals introduce lethal narratives into the public as news, as factual accounts of what happened.

Al Durah Journalism

Lethal Journalism as practiced by a school of journalists, consistently credulous about Palestinian claims, a school dominant in the Middle East since 2000. What sets Al Durah Journalism aside from most earlier versions of Lethal Journalism is the degree of participation of journalists from target cultures in circulating the narratives attacking them.
