“Haters of Israel” Facebook Page Surpasses 1 Million “Likes”

The Arabic-language “Haters of Israel” Face­book page, cre­ated in 2011 by a group of Egyp­tians, has attracted over 1,100,000 “likes.” 18–24 year-olds make up the largest demographic.haters-of-israel-facebook

Inter­est­ingly, a major­ity of the posts on the page have lit­tle or noth­ing to do with Israel, a tes­ti­mony to the fun­da­men­tal pop­u­lar­ity such a title has in much of the Arab world.

The page func­tions as a pop­u­lar forum for those who either iden­tify as haters of Israel or who appre­ci­ate the wide appeal gen­er­ated by the page; some use the page to adver­tise their own pages and profiles.

Many Face­book pages strive to have a frac­tion of the “likes” this page has gen­er­ated, but fail to acquire such a mas­sive fol­low­ing. One pos­si­ble rea­son is the sim­plic­ity of the title and the clear state­ment it makes about one’s iden­tity. To be asso­ci­ated with such a clear mes­sage adds def­i­n­i­tion to one’s online pres­ence and is desir­able regard­less of what the con­tent ulti­mately is. 

That is not to say that the page is devoid of anti-Israel and anti-Semitic mes­sages. For exam­ple, one user posted a well-known Holo­caust photo of corpses loaded onto a truck with a cap­tion that reads, “Guess what is on this cute wagon… Yes, cor­rect, ha ha ha… These are the remains of the Jew­ish corpses from the Holo­caust exe­cuted by Hitler the hero.”

“Haters of Israel” is hardly the only page of its kind. Face­book users have cre­ated numer­ous pages glo­ri­fy­ing Hitler and demo­niz­ing Israel and Jews in mul­ti­ple lan­guages that have attracted an innu­mer­able amount of “likes.”protocols-elders-zion-facebook

For exam­ple, another Ara­bic lan­guage Face­book page is pro­vid­ing chap­ters of the noto­ri­ous anti-Semitic forgery, The Pro­to­cols of the Learned Elders of Zion. Accord­ing to the descrip­tion pro­vided by the Face­book page, its objec­tive is to “Expose the Jewish/ Israeli plan to con­trol and dom­i­nate the world through their immoral plan known as ‘The pro­to­cols of the Learned Elders of Zion.’”

    Shame­ful, really.
    It seems idiocy, prej­u­dice and mean-spirited pro­pa­ganda thrump over rea­son and facts. The worst part? Face­book doesn’t care.

    There was no-need to drop two bomb when Japan got what you already con­ceded they only thing the demanded; keep­ing their Emperor

    You could saved more Jews by bomb­ing the rail­roads and lis­ten­ing to other Amer­i­can Jews. You bomb the crap out of the Ho Chi Min Trail.
    Then have the Gol invite them to sim­u­late into your pop­u­la­tion after what you saw what their capa­ble of with jobs and posi­tions of power through oper­a­tion paper clip at NASA/CIA.

    You couldn’t win and had to set­tle for a draw in Korea where you still cant get the North to feel so sorry for them­selves enough to have them work for .25 cents an hour. To develop an infer­rer com­plex never believ­ing they can defend them­selves against a white bully Nation.

    You were set as exam­ple in Viet­nam by the heav­ens in hav­ing a super power loos­ing to poorer weaker nation. Hashem, Blessed Be He pledged HE will defend the weak and the poor. It is writ­ten in the Torah. That is not writ­ten or deleted in the king James bible. “G-D told me to tell you this morn­ing. The truth myst be told.”-MLK

    Not euro­pean com­mu­nism but demo­c­ra­tic social­ist coun­tries still flour­ish despite eco­nomic embar­goes like in cuba or with­out hav­ing them applied in China. When other coun­ties peo­ple vote their social­ist lead­ers in you mur­der them like Allende in Chile.
    Then Pres­i­dent Ronald Rea­gan sup­plies only the rich in El Sal­vador with M-16s. Tries to start a war in Nicaragua and when Arch Bishop Romero writes a let­ter to Rea­gan he is mur­der as well.

    You lyied to the Amer­i­can peo­ple about weapons of mass destruc­tion to destroy a coun­try over Mobile Oil and revenge because younger Bush didn’t like how Sad­dam spook to Bush Sr. Hydro-electric energy runs in water that should be free on a planet thats two thirds water. It was offer as an alter­na­tive fuel in the six­ties when Bobby went to Peru to see how sup­posed to work before Eisenhower/Johnson’ s mil­i­tary quo de ta!

    And Jews wanna now relay on This Amer­ica for its defense with bil­lions of green paper and call them­selves great banker or investors or with money in gen­eral. Hashem, Blessed Be He is tired of pun­ish­ing you for try­ing to be like other tribes or relay­ing on them instead if HIM, Blessed Be He. Moses didn’t relay on the Hit­tites to escape Egypt.

    Hashem, Blessed Be He sent the Assyr­i­ans from Per­sia to destroy the north­ern king­dom of Israel. Now your reliance have Iran a Per­sian Nation capa­ble if destroy­ing you with a bomb if you don’t con­ceded to the Palestinians.

    Just remem­ber one thing All Roads Lead To Jerusalem may you right­eous when you get there!
