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.

Why Not Sanctions for Israel?

leave a comment »

This is a great article by Paul Craig Roberts from CounterPunch:

In Israel, a country stolen from the Palestinians, fanatics control the government. One of the fanatics is the prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu. Last week Netanyahu called for “crippling sanctions” against Iran.

The kind of blockade that Netanyahu wants qualifies as an act of war. Israel has long threatened to attack Iran on its own but prefers to draw in the US and NATO.

Why does Israel want to initiate a war between the United States and Iran?

Is Iran attacking other countries, bombing civilians and destroying civilian infrastructure?

No. These are crimes committed by Israel and the US.

Is Iran evicting peoples from lands they have occupied for centuries and herding them into ghettoes?

No, that’s what Israel has been doing to the Palestinians for 60 years.
