Back here I blogged about “The Divine Victory” brand that’s been cropping up around the conflict in the Middle East.
Stanley Moss has sent through another example: “Hezbollah leaders claims ‘divine victory’” from the International Herald Tribune. Except now it’s moving out from pictures to the international media. The writer of this story may have been unaware of the extent of meaning inherent in the phrase “The Divine Victory”, but the intended targets will now exactly what’s going on here. And once again, the branding of the conflict by Hezbollah gains ground.
