Jewish Internet Defense Force embarks on new #ShanaTova Twitter campaign

with one comment

The Jewish Internet Defense Force, an internet collective of Jewish activists that I recently wrote about, has embarked on yet another Twitter campaign. This time the stated goal is to raise awareness of “Rosh Hashanah and suffering children,” by making the hashtag #ShanaTova a trending topic.

Despite having labeled all practicing Muslims, including children, as terrorists and defending the murder by Israeli soldiers of Palestinian civilians, including children, the JIDF claims to want to raise awareness of “suffering children.”

Given the shady history of the JIDF, their Islamophobia and support of human rights violations according to international law, one has to wonder whether including the cause of raising awareness of “suffering children” in their #ShanaTova Twitter campaign is simply a cold and calculated marketing strategy.

The press release for their latest campaign reads, “‘Tweet #ShanaTova’ is a non-political, non-denominational campaign to remind people to think about those less fortunate than themselves, particularly children suffering from life-threatening diseases such as cancer and other debilitating chronic and genetic conditions.”

If they expect non-political and non-denominational support of their campaign, Jewish Internet Defense Force activists and supporters would do well to worry more about the direct effects of their undying support of Israel’s murderous policies which have resulted in the deaths of countless children before shallowly claiming to care about “children suffering from life-threatening diseases such as cancer and other debilitating chronic and genetic conditions.”

Unless, of course, that claim is simply a cold and calculated marketing strategy.
