Jewish Internet Defense Force fails to make #ShanaTova trending Twitter topic

leave a comment »

As I reported the other day, the Jewish Internet Defense Force scheduled yet another Twitter campaign for yesterday, September 16, with the goal of making #ShanaTova a trending topic in order to “raise awareness of Rosh Hashanah,” and to “draw attention to the plight of suffering children.”

Unlike their previous Twitter campaign which managed to make #GiladShalit, an IDF prisoner of war who has been in the custody of Hamas since 2006, the number two trending topic for about a day, the #ShanaTova campaign failed miserably.

It should come as no surprise that the #ShanaTova campaign was largely unsuccessful due to the fact that it was marketed in part to “draw attention to the plight of suffering children” when in fact the Jewish Internet Defense Force actively defends and supports the murder of innocent children almost every single day in their unbridled support for Israel’s policy of ethnically cleansing Palestinians.

In light of the #ShanaTova failure, David Appletree, the founder of the Jewish Internet Defense Force and self-proclaimed social media expert lamented*, “I’m thankful as I learned some extremely valuable things from the #ShanaTova campaign,” which he assured, “are going to help with whatever I do next.”

Hopefully, whatever he decides to do next is not a campaign designed to promote the violation of international laws as he and his supporters so often do.

Not that it matters, since his self-proclaimed social media expertise has been exposed for what it truly is in the wake of the #ShanaTova failure, a great big delusion.

*Since publishing my last article about the Jewish Internet Defense Force, out of fear of being exposed, David Appletree has protected his tweets.

Death of Asaf Ramon highlights mainstream media bias towards Israel

The mainstream media bias towards Israel was once again made evident yesterday when the death of Israeli fighter pilot Asaf Ramon made international headlines while the death of 25 year old Palestinian journalism student Obeida Al-Qudsy Ad-Dweik, who was shot by Israeli troops on August 26 and succumbed to his wounds yesterday, did not.

A Google news search of Obeida Dweik returned only 4 results while a search of Asaf Ramon returned around 600.

Israel and U.S. jointly target Sweden in propaganda blitzkrieg

(WMR) — After the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet published an expose of the Israeli Defense Forces harvesting the organs from young Palestinians killed by its forces in the West Bank, Israel’s propaganda machine, which has its tentacles in the world’s largest media companies and the Pentagon, went to work on demonizing Sweden.

Our sources in Finland report that Finnish television is stating that Israel’s Mossad was behind the hijacking of the Maltese-flagged, Russian-crewed, and Russo-Finnish chartered ”Arctic Sea” in Swedish territorial waters. The charter firm is Solchart Arkhangelsk Ltd. of Helsinki. The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office Investigation Committee says it is cooperating with authorities in Malta, Estonia, Latvia, Finland, and Sweden on the hijacking of the “Arctic Sea.” Israel is noticeably absent from the list of cooperating countries.

Make the Palestinian state an essential fact on the ground

The Palestinian prime minister Salam Fayyad’s blueprint for what he has called “de facto Palestinian statehood” offers a new and important element to the quest for peace in the Middle East.

Peace between Israel and the Palestinians hinges on recognition and security for Israel and freedom and independence for a Palestinian state. Mr Fayyad’s model emphasises the importance of the reality of the Palestinian state as a functioning entity, irrespective of international recognition and grand diplomatic gestures. By doing so, Mr Fayyad challenges the sole reliance on political and rhetorical tools of diplomacy and international recognition, the traditional path through which Palestinians have sought statehood. Mr Fayyad is saying that if Palestinians build governing and civil society institutions, Palestine can become a state in reality, whether negotiations are moving forward or not. Palestine will be a fait accompli, rather than a distant aspiration. If you build it, the state will come.

Swine Flu: Path to Martial Law?

leave a comment »

Great article by John Griffing:

Could a form of martial law be imminent? Obama appears ready to cross the Rubicon, and all he needs is a killer virus.

Let’s connect some dots.

Remember President Obama’s Executive Order basing 80,000 active troops at home for the first time in the history of the peacetime military establishment to “help with civil unrest and crowd control or to deal with potentially horrific scenarios such as massive poisoning and chaos in response to a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or high-yield explosive, or CBRNE, attack….”

Now connect that information to the recent announcement that the military has established regional deployment locations all across the United States to “assist civilian authorities in the event of a significant outbreak of the H1N1 virus this fall, according to Defense Department officials.”

Civil unrest and crowd control? Significant outbreak of the H1N1 virus this fall? What do they know that we don’t?

You Must Leave Your Home

with 2 comments

Why doesn’t the international community do something about all of the illegal Israeli settlements? The way many of the settlers treat the true owners of the land is outrageous. Settlers walk around with guns like they own the place; fire upon Palestinians unprovoked, and teach their children to do the same. It is absolutely ridiculous and it must stop NOW.

Imagine this: I walk into your house; beat the shit out of you; kick you out into the backyard; begin calling your house mine; continue beating the shit out of you every single day; call you a terrorist when you fight back. Doesn’t make too much sense does it? Well then why is it happening right now? Something must be done!

Someone has to give these people a taste of their own medicine, and soon.

The Jewish Internet Defense Force

with 4 comments

The Jewish Internet Defense Force is a collective of Jewish activists led by David Appletree with the stated goal of fighting anti-Semitism and terrorism on the web. They are present on most major social media websites, but Facebook and Twitter seem to be their main areas of focus.

After only a few minutes of research I learned that the JIDF will use any means necessary to censor opinions they disagree with, even opinions with a firm factual foundation. In 2008, they hacked a Facebook group called, “Israel is not a country!… … Delist it from Facebook as a country!” And proceeded to delete all of the members of the group. Soon after, the JIDF released a statement proclaiming the hacking of the group a “major victory against Jew haters,” and that “despite tens of thousands of complaints, Facebook wouldn’t remove it, as they claimed that this incitement to murder was ‘legitimate political discourse’ – Facebook’s negligence and abdication of responsibility gave us no option but to take matters in our own hands…..”

Here we have the JIDF hacking a Facebook group not because the members are anti-Semitic or are terrorists, but because they disagree with the name of the group and the opinions of the members; many of whom have a very legitimate gripe as it was their homeland that was stolen in order to make the creation of a “Jewish homeland” possible. Isn’t it perfectly fair for them to ask who the real terrorists are? As Facebook correctly stated, their group was a forum for “legitimate political discourse.”

The JIDF is also very active on Twitter; just recently they organized a campaign to raise awareness about Gilad Shalit, an Israeli prisoner of war in the custody of Hamas. The goal was to make the hashtag #GiladShalit a trending topic, and they were successful; his name was the number two trending topic for about a day. What they failed to mention leading up to and during the campaign though, is the enormous difference between the number of current Israeli political prisoners and Palestinian political prisoners. The JIDF decries the lack of mainstream media coverage of Gilad Shalit, and uses his situation as just another excuse to label all Arabs and Muslims as terrorists, while completely denying the well documented fact that Israel kidnaps Palestinians almost every single day. Again, who are the real terrorists?

There are many more examples of the activities of the JIDF on the internet, but they are just more of the same of what was already covered; see for yourself and Google the JIDF. Their main tactic is playing the victim in order to attempt to increase their power over free speech, so they can pick and choose what can and can’t be said. If they don’t like what you write they label you either anti-Semitic or a terrorist, or both. The funny thing is though, even former Minister of Education in Israel, Shulamit Aloni, admits calling people anti-Semitic is a trick that is used all the time.
