I think that this material is somehow related to information warfare -
particularly when it has to do with how nation states are acting with
regards to each other.  Let's call it information conflict between
nations...  I do include propaganda and disinformation in my view of
information warfare.  If you want to discuss the definition, you might
begin by looking at the information warfare archives at all.net...

	=> Information Warfare
		=> 1995-6 IW list 
			=> Refs

This includes several definitions by different people and citations to
related works.

Very nice subtle use of the laws of Kosher Ozair (both Moslems and Jews
have laws against eating pork).
