on 9 Comments

Palestinian organisations in Gaza are calling upon all people of conscience around the world, to make posters of the fallen heroes of the recent Great March of Return and plaster these all over your cities and towns, especially opposite Israeli and American embassies. This is an action that will greatly benefit the visibility of our cause!

PDF files of the fallen demonstrators can be found here : https://tinyurl.com/y96mb76m

Please send pictures or videos of your action with statement of support for the Right of Return and the Great March of Return to: [email protected]

Following the media coverage of the massacre that Israel carried out against us on the first day of our march, we have been receiving less and less media coverage.Yet more and more of us are being killed every day. Gaza has been bombarded night and day too. Since the start of the Great March of Return, over 135 unarmed protesters have been shot dead and more than 14,000 wounded by the occupation forces, including children, medical staff, journalists, and the disabled. Gaza’s health system has been pushed to the brink of collapse, as hospitals struggle to handle an influx of serious and life-threatening injuries.

Help keep the freedom of Palestinians and the right to return in the spotlight!

    “It was very interesting to notice the attitude of the Israelis towards us. They couldn’t comprehend why were doing this. What we were doing challenges their mindset and that is why it is such an effective tactic. They treat the Palestinians as if they are subhuman. They don’t think Palestinians deserve to live in a normal society, to be able to import and export and fish and farm. It’s great to be able to meet that mindset head on.”

      Those Irish soccer fans are really admirable. I am always impressed how supportive they are to the Palestinians, and they show it in large numbers. If only Americans were not so brainwashed by the media, we would see this here too.

    Here is how far the hatred has spread. This guy must come from the illegal settlements, he certainly behaves that way. The narration is great and even funny. We can only hope the Australian voters have more intelligence than the ones who voted for Trump here. This guy is a typical zionist, he attacks and then pretends HE is the victim.

    In Melbourne Australia spreading the lies and hate.

    Annie and the editors,

    Please look into the mirror and chant a thousand times: “I am a gutless chickenshit for not allowing anyone to post anything that contradicts my viewpoint that Palestinians are totally innocent of absolutely everything.”

    Tehran may not be the safest place these days to put up your posters.
    Are these protesters actually shouting “Death to Palestine” as the FB feed says?

    If they are, it’s because Iran is diverting badly needed funds towards militias like Hisbullah, Palestinian Jihad, and Hamas. When people say the Middle East is complicated, they aren’t kidding.

      @JustJessetr: I’ll take the bait. In your view, what are the Palestinians guilty of, and what are the Israelis guilty of?

      So what does that fact that some Iranians don’t want to support Palestinians because of economic reasons have to do with Palestinians being innocent or not? Do you really think that they chant “Death to Palestine” for the same reasons other Iranians chant “Death to Israel” or “Death to America”?

    “This guy is a typical zionist, he attacks and then pretends HE is the victim”

    Thanks for the link to the video.Seriously funny. Did he say that the older “blonde” with shades was his mum. Shurely Shome Mishtake.He looks well Moroccan (no offence to Moroccans) and well she looks Scandanavian(no offence to Scandanavians). Still looks and sounds as if he would need his mum alongside him 24/7 to change his nappies(aka diapers).

    I think that Zionists see themselves more as Aryan/Scandanavian/WASJ`s (White Anglo Saxon Jews) and may baulk at the idea of this creature being viewed as a typical Zionist.

    Israel’s Achilles heel is numbers. You CANNOT run apartheid on a base of 6 million cult members or 13 million affiliates. Tech cannot overcome this.

    “With the rising visibility of Palestinian solidarity, and especially the growth of the boycott, divestment, and sanctions movement (BDS), pro-Israel actors have increasingly depicted social media in the terms of a battlefield, in which the spread of “lies” against Israel is regarded as a serious threat on par with rockets from Hamas. To meet this challenge, Erdan announced a new initiative he referred to as an “Iron Dome of Truth” — an app — that promises to intercept and neutralize offending content.

    With the mobile application and online platform Act.IL, Israel aims to recruit a mob of slacktivists and trolls to join their war against the most insidious forms of violence: pro-Palestinian tweets and Facebook posts.

    Users of the app are presented with quick daily missions that they complete for points, earning their way up the leaderboards. Missions include “liking” and commenting on specific Facebook posts, retweeting pro-Israel accounts, and signing petitions. It provides users with suggested comments that they can copy-and-paste to spam discussion boards, and satirical videos and cartoons that are shareable (if cringeworthy).

    In this way, the app identifies and directs users en masse to engage in propaganda online, both affirming pro-Israel sentiment and “revealing” the supposedly terrorist character of BDS. “Inciting” content is identified with the help of the Israeli Defense Forces and the Shin Bet, revealing the close collaboration with Israel’s military and security forces, but users can also suggest specific posts to be targeted.

    With this technology, Israel is given the power to actively manage online discourse, taking direct command of its army of volunteer internet warriors and deploying them wherever is seen fit. It is Israel’s friends, however — a diverse network of non-state actors willing to collaborate to advance the state’s goals — who make this possible.

    Tech and State

    The Act.IL app is the product of deliberate efforts by the Israeli state, in collaboration with universities, American nonprofits, and Israel’s tech sector, to develop an infrastructure for incubating anti-BDS technologies.

    One feature in recent years has been the rise of anti-BDS “hackathons,” multi-day events which tend to be hosted by Israeli universities in conjunction with pro-Israel think tanks and advocacy groups, such as the Reut Institute and StandWithUs. These are competitive events, with significant cash prizes, in which Israeli and international teams of high-school and college students meet to develop new algorithms and applications, with the intent of identifying and responding to anti-Israel content on social media more efficiently.”

    There are too many Hillels and not enough Bennetts in galut.
