Twitter and You Tube: The IDF’s Latest Weapons of War

31 Dec

Fastforward Blog calls it War 2.0 – the use of social media as a major weapon in winning the “people’s war” of spin in the Middle East. Israel is now getting its story out there in a big way using YouTube and Twitter.

The blogosphere and new media are another war zone, we have to be relevant there.

So said the head of the IDF’s (Israel Defense Forces) press team, as quoted in Global Dashboard.

Here’s a video featuring an attack on the Hamas government complex in Gaza (12/30/08):

    This raises the bar for Obama administration and what everyone expects of a White House 2.0

    A two-state solution is an ignorant one. The demise of Israel is all the enemies of israel want. How many more decades of arabic lies and deceit will it take for the stupid world population to see clearly. How can anyone side with terrorism in todays world? I’m ashamed of the way that America is pushing Israel for this no-win strategy. Israel must continue to destroy hate, ignoring all voices outside of the terror. France, shut up and sit. Germany, shut-up and sit. UN, shut-up and dismantle. It’s time for your demise. You are useless and you propegate the anti-Israeli hatered. Israel, devour hate. Israel, devour those that worship death. Israel, release the bonds that bind you to useless calls for ceasing NOW! Stand and fight as your God is with you! Send hate to the bowels of hell where it belongs! NO TWO-STATE SOLUTION! The land is legally yours. Do not weaken. Stand firm. Deafen your ears to all who encourage a coexistance with deceit. Stop being defeated and win. A two-state solution is guranteed destruction for Israel. Let the arabs that walked away from their homes, move to the millions of desolate arabic acres. Israel shall stand alone with no none at her side.
