Spot the Difference!

OK, here's your classic North Korean rambamming:

"Visiting the country does little to increase one's understanding. I have made 6 visits and all were tightly organised propaganda tours. My only significant interactions were with the people known as guides - medium to low-level minders - whose job it was to convey us from monument to palace to mausoleum, attempting to maintain confidence and good humour in the face of sceptical questions. I became persuaded that, although they knew they were lying cynically about many smaller things, their naive faith in the rightness and goodness of their government was, in many cases, unfeigned." (Life of paranoia the norm in North, Richard Lloyd-Parry, The Times/The Australian, 21/12/11)

Essentially, Israeli rambammings differ in only one respect from the above. Can you work out what it is?

Congratulations! Well done! You're absolutely right!

Journalists and politicians who go on an Israeli rambamming don't ask sceptical questions.
