Israel using Facebook to distribute terrorist instructions and incite hate

'Let's make our own rockets'

A new Facebook group is urging Sderot residents to use the Internet to learn how to build crude rockets, much like the Kassams launched at them from the Gaza Strip, and fire them back at the Palestinians.

The group, which currently has 45 members [in fact over 100 members and rising at a steady rate later on 11 Feb thanks to media publicity], posts material from the Internet on how to manufacture rockets.

[In the US, UK or any other allied country this would be clearly illegal. If Muslims in any country did something like this on any web site, the mass media and the west-dominated "international community" would immediately condemn them as "terrorists". (There are numerous examples of allegations and trials of this nature against Muslims, often involving questionable interpretations, alleged "coded" messages, etc.) The material would already have been removed from Facebook, the accounts of those responsible would already be closed, and arrest warrants would be issued for the perpetrators. Yet in Israel people can do this freely and openly, with at least tacit support from the state and sections of the media -- as long as they aren't Muslims, the official enemy. The reasons for these double-standards are worthy of deeper investigation, and the reader is encouraged to undertake further research in this area.]

Facebook, a social networking site that has taken the on-line world by storm, allows anyone to create groups and to invite people to join.

The group's creators, Shai and Batya Messenberg from Petah Tikva, posted a description that reads: "It cannot be so difficult: If those retards from the Gaza Strip can do it then so can you."

[The Facebook group has members from other countries including the US and UK where it is clearly illegal. For example, the group's main public page features a message from a clearly identified male Jewish youth living in Britain who expresses strong support for the group -- a clear and serious criminal act under UK anti-terrorism law, carrying a long prison term,  Membership is growing fast thanks to exposure in the media and links from major web sites including the Jerusalem Post newspaper. High-profile supporters stop short of openly supporting the group, but promote it with web links and coverage and make no attempt to criticise the group.]

The description encourages residents of the town to trawl the Net for information on how to build ballistic missiles from materials found in the home.

"I'm sure that very soon they [the Gazans] will get the message," the group's creator wrote.

A link to NASA's Rocket Science 101 tutorial can also be found on the Facebook group's page. The tutorial allows users to choose from a menu of rockets to assemble, although the NASA rockets are much larger and more complex than the Kassam.

The message goes on to say that Sderot residents can also do their part in cutting off the flow of Israeli electricity to the Gaza Strip, "even if the High Court of Justice won't allow it," by finding someone with a tractor who is willing to drive into nearby electrical poles.

The Gaza Strip receives 70 percent of its electricity from Israel, the vast majority of which is produced at the Rotenberg Power station in Ashkelon.

The group's logo picture shows a Palestinian Kassam rocket crew preparing to fire, with the words "This could be you" scrawled in red across the photograph.

The new group joins about 50 other Facebook groups in support of Sderot, such as Save Sderot, Stop the Kassam rockets in Sderot, Light a candle with Sderot, I stand w/Sderot, From 90210 to Sderot, Children of Sderot, Skate for Sderot, and For the residents of other towns in the western Negev not waiting for the next Kassam (this group is planning to ask every radio station in the country to simultaneously play the Color Red alarm - the one heard in Sderot when Kassam rockets are fired from Gaza - to increase awareness of Sderot's plight).

Last month, a WIMAX wireless Internet infrastructure was established in Sderot. The technology enables the use of wireless broadband links over long distances.

The project will allow students and others to surf the Web for free and with high-quality connections.


Jerusalem Post, "'Let's make our own rockets'", 11 February 2008.


The Guardian, "Appeal judges clear Muslims of terror charges", 14 February 2008.
    Judge's directions to jury were deficient [deceptive if we dispense with unnecessary diplomacy and waffle], says court
    Islamist material 'is legal unless linked to violence'
    Five young Muslim men yesterday had their terrorism convictions quashed after judges concluded that reading Islamist material was not illegal unless there was "direct" proof it was to be used to inspire violent extremism.
    The men had been jailed in July 2006 with the trial judge saying they had been "intoxicated" by extremism ...
    "While they lent support to the prosecution case that the appellants had formed a plan to go to Pakistan to train and then to Afghanistan to fight, there was nothing that evidenced expressly the use, or intention to use, the extremist literature to incite each other to do this. "
    [This is in stark contrast with the Israeli Facebook group, which manifestly is a serious criminal offence under Section 57 of the Terrorism Act 2000, clearly stating the intent to use the weapons. All members of the Facebook group are eligible to be arrested tried in a court of law under the Act, with those members who posted messages of endorsement, invited others to join or distributed the link in any way, along with the founders of the group, attracting the longest prison sentences.]

BBC News, "Man released after terror probe", 28 April 2006.
    A 25-year-old man who was detained under the Terrorism Act 2000 after an operation in a Scottish town on Monday has been released without charge.
    Asif Siddique was held at the high security Govan police station in Glasgow following the operation in Alva, Clackmannanshire.
    His brother Atif Siddique was charged under the Terrorism Act on Thursday, following his detention on 13 April.
    Two other men also arrested on Monday were earlier released without charge.
    Central Scotland Police declined to comment beyond confirming that there were now insufficient grounds to detain Asif Siddique.
    On Thursday, Mr Siddique's brother, Atif Siddique, 20, was charged with offences under Section 58(1b) of the Terrorism Act at a specially convened court in Falkirk. The offences relate to the possession of documents or records containing information "likely to be useful" to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism.
    [There are many similar examples, following the usual pattern of high-profile "anti-terrorism" operations making big headlines around the world, keeping the "war on terror" illusion high on the news agenda, with the truth quietly emerging later virtually unnoticed in comparison.]

BBC News, "Two held in terror raid released", 10 June 2006.
    Two men arrested after a raid on a house in east London have been released without charge, Scotland Yard said.
    Police questioned two brothers, one of whom was shot during the raid, on suspicion of terrorism involvement.

BBC News, "Police free five terror suspects", 15 October 2005.

    The tenth man is due to be deported to North Africa on Thursday.
    The nine men and one woman were arrested on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism in an operation led by Greater Manchester Police.


Haaretz, "Peres urges world youth to fight anti-Semitism using Facebook", 29 January 2008.
    Israel's 84-year-old president has a novel idea on how to battle anti-Semitism: Facebook.
    Shimon Peres told a group of international students on Tuesday at Israel's Holocaust memorial that the popular social networking site was an effective means to counter the spread of hate and incitement on the Internet.
    [The meaning of the term "anti-Semitism" in this context is "enemies of Israel". This is a distortion of the actual meaning: anti = against, semitic = pertaining to the descencdents of Abraham (including Arabs/Muslims). In many countries the general public are conditioned with the assumption that the term "Semitic" is exclusive to Jews, a false and narrow interpretation. However, the word "Semitic" has not yet lost its true meaning among academics, e.g. the "Semitic languages" in linguistics which include Ababic.]
