Instructional Content On How To Stab Jews Spreads On Social Media

Update — 10/20/15: After alert­ing Google, Face­book and Twit­ter to the prob­lem­atic mate­r­ial cited in this blog post, all the items have been removed by those ser­vices in a prompt manner. 

As vio­lence esca­lates in Israel, con­tent has emerged across social media platforms—including YouTube, Face­book, and Twitter—not only urg­ing peo­ple to stab Jews, but pro­vid­ing instruc­tional infor­ma­tion on how to stab peo­ple and which knives to use.

The fol­low­ing is a sam­pling of Arabic-language posts ADL has iden­ti­fied in the past sev­eral days specif­i­cally pro­vid­ing infor­ma­tion about how to stab vic­tims. While such con­tent is avail­able is many lan­guages, the Ara­bic lan­guage con­tent seems geared toward Ara­bic speak­ers in Israel.

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is alert­ing var­i­ous social media com­pa­nies about this con­tent. ADL con­tin­ues to work with the indus­try to improve poli­cies and pro­to­cols for the removal of con­tent that trig­gers vio­lence or pro­motes big­otry, con­tent that is con­trary to the com­pa­nies’ terms of service.

ADL con­tin­ues to encour­age the pub­lic to report such con­tent. ADL Cyber-Safety Action Guide pro­vides quick and easy access to com­pany poli­cies and com­plaint forms.

  • A video fea­tur­ing two masked men demon­strat­ing sev­eral stab­bing tech­niques is avail­able on sev­eral YouTube chan­nels.

  • A num­ber of Twit­ter users started post­ing a graphic last week describ­ing what type of knife should be used for stab­bing attacks in Israel. The image includes the fol­low­ing instruc­tions: “Cir­cu­late: Regard­ing the Youth in the occu­pied lands, they must use ser­rated knives in stab­bing so the air can enter the body of the tar­get, which leads to imme­di­ate death, and the destruc­tion of organs when the knife is pulled.”

“[Right side, in red] Use this”    “[Left side, in green] don’t use this”

  • Sev­eral Twit­ter users rec­om­mend attach­ing a cam­era to the knife to record the stab­bing in HD. For exam­ple, the tweet below from Octo­ber 5 includes an image of a GoPro cam­era attached to a knife and hash­tags that trans­late to  “West Bank is upris­ing” “Stab a sol­dier with a knife to lib­er­ate Pales­tine” and  “Intifada started.”Twitter 3 stab image
  • The fol­low­ing image posted on Face­book on Octo­ber 14 shows a dia­gram of the cir­cu­la­tory sys­tem with sug­ges­tions of areas to stab. The image was included with an Ara­bic Face­book hash­tag “Stab.”Facebook stab image.
  • The fol­low­ing image posted on Insta­gram on Octo­ber 12 reads, “When you stab, put poi­son on the knife or soak the knife in vine­gar. Stab with a screw dri­ver and insert it in the neck….stabber stab­ber stab correctly.”Instagram stab image

    This is prob­a­bly the most hor­ri­fy­ing thing I have ever read.

  • layed­back

    this is just so wrong.….….….… may Jesus come soon to put an end to this.

  • Maha Kali

    Right. How about offi­cial state spon­sored train­ing Israeli army receive? Surely they teach them how to throw teddy bears at pro­test­ers and shoot chil­dren with sweets?

    • Xavier Gough

      They have a right to defend from exis­ten­tial threats made by insane, blood-lusting mani­acs that sur­round them.

  • AnonymizedUser123

    How come the Israeli ambas­sador to the UN is pre­tend­ing the stab­bing pic­ture is shown IN schools and after schools? Just another liar like Netanyahu with his bomb cartoon.

    • JK

      you could be bet­ter informed if you wanted

    • Xavier Gough

      Get off your soap­box, you goat-fucking clown.

  • Timmy Singer

    when you stop tak­ing the lands of Pales­tini­ans maybe they won’t go to this extent.

    • Dave Kaplan

      When you receive a long jail sen­tence for your sup­port of mur­der, ter­ror­ism and geno­cide, we will be safe from crim­i­nal scum like you.

      • Nadeem Khan

        You are threat­en­ing here and you did the same all around the world. Stop killing pales­tini­ans and their chil­drens. When today you are afraid of just the knives they have and tomor­row you will afraid of their piis. Pigtards

        • Xavier Gough

          Nadeem the goat-fucking lunatic. I hope you choke on pig flesh you utter piece of shit.

    • Fer­nanda

      It’s sur­real that some­one is capa­ble of jus­ti­fy­ing such horror.

    • Xavier Gough

      Timmy, why don’t you quit gob­bling up all your lib­eral pro­pa­ganda and try edu­cat­ing your­self on this. Islamists don’t give a fly­ing fuck about your bleed­ing heart bull­shit. In fact, these jihadi nut­bags would mur­der you in a sec­ond for hav­ing a name like “singer”.

    • Rich Dal­las

      bs they’re a bunch of mind­less, mur­der­ing thugs wor­ship­ping a demon war god and a false goat-humping pedophile prophet! they won’t change!

  • Häls­ing i exil

    Try to leave the lands youve stolen since 1967 and you will see a change in atti­tude. Just a tip.

    • Xavier Gough

      Spoils of win­ning wars. Win next time, mmmkay?
