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.

9/11: Our Truth, and Theirs

leave a comment »

On September 11, 2001, nineteen hijackers, wielding nothing more lethal than box-cutters, commandeered four airliners, and turned them into lethal missiles, three of which managed to hit their targets – the World Trade Center and the Pentagon – while a fourth crashed in a field before it could strike its intended target — the White House. One of the hijackers had been in the United States since the mid-1990s, and the others, according to subsequent investigations, entered, exited, and re-entered the United States regularly starting in 2000.

How 9/11 Should Be Remembered

leave a comment »

On September 11, 2001, a fellow New Yorker and friend of mine, a public health historian who knew instantly what the dangers were, bicycled directly into the smoke, ash, and chemicals that hung over lower Manhattan searching for his daughter whose school was only blocks away from the collapsed buildings. She was, it turned out, “safe” in that same pall of dangerous smoke. She had been evacuated to the street with her class in time to see people leaping or falling to their deaths from the upper floors of one of the crippled towers. You probably couldn’t live in New York City that day and not be connected, however indirectly, to someone who died. In my case, it was the father of a classmate of my son’s, a photographer, who also advanced into the chaos near one of the towers, leaving behind an eerie, moving trail of photographs.

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

Online Journal Contributing Writer

(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.

Populist Says Healthcare Debate A Ruse to Cover Corporate Welfare

leave a comment »

American Free Press – 645 Pennsylvania Avenue SE, Suite 100 Washington, D.C. 20003

FORGET ABOUT EVERYTHING YOU HAVE READ on so-called healthcare reform, says Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio). The purported uproar over private versus public health insurance options is really a ruse to cover up a proposal for taxpayer-funded subsidies that will be paid to the billion- dollar private insurance industry.

Under new “compromise” language inserted into the 1,000-page health care bill, titled the “America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009” (H.R. 3200), Americans will be forced to choose which for profit
health insurance company they want to take. If you can’t afford any of the private health insurance plans, the government will pick one for you and then front you the money. But the catch is: you will still be obligated to pay all of the premiums, the co-pays and the high deductibles.

“The hotly debated H.R. 3200, the so called ‘healthcare reform’ bill, is nothing less than corporate welfare in the guise of social welfare and reform,” said Kucinich.

The public option will be gone, he said, leaving only government aid to private insurance companies. Worse still, the federal government will force taxpayers to pay for it all without pressing for cost controls and no guarantees of coverage from any of the participating private insurers.

Letter to local newspaper about surveillance cameras

leave a comment »

Here is a letter I wrote to my local newspaper about surveillance cameras in public areas:

I am well aware of the horrible sexual assault in [EDITED], and the subsequent apprehension of the perpetrators with assistance from one of the cameras; and I’m grateful they were promptly captured, but we must not let emotion cloud a very important debate.

Despite the fact that there are more than 4.2 million surveillance cameras in the United Kingdom, multiple government commissioned studies have proven the cameras ineffective by finding that they have no statistically significant impact on crime rates at all. In the isolated event that crime decreases in a certain area, it goes up in the areas immediately surrounding it. In the case of [EDITED], this would move crime from the high traffic areas where the cameras are installed into the quieter neighborhoods that surround those areas.

The Department of Homeland Security provided the town of [EDITED] with these cameras in order to assist in the evacuation of [EDITED] in the event of an emergency; but should such an event occur, we all know there would be no remedy for the traffic problems that would ensue, which would in effect render the cameras useless.

So we must ask ourselves: if studies have found them worthless in preventing crime, and logic tells us they would be useless in assisting the evacuation of [EDITED], what is the true purpose of these cameras?
