The Jewish Internet Defense Force (JIDF) is a Jewish terrorist organization that uses social media to mobilize support for campaigns against websites. It is not limited to just main sites like Facebook, Wikipedia, YouTube and Twitter, but any forum where there is an anti-Jewish presence, they will come. They also engage in hacking and DDoS attacks which the Zionist mainstream Jewish lackey media calls "hacktivism" Their slogan says they fight against terrorism, which is like ISIS having a slogan saying their group fights terrorism. (ISIS coincidentally is a puppet of Israel.) The JIDF is also a Zionist instigator of Islamohysteria.
Organization and methods
According to the JIDF, the organization "formed as a grassroots effort in 2000, to mount mass e-mail campaigns, in response to the outbreak of the Second Intifada." The website is run by a person who identifies himself as "David Appletree." According to a reporter from The Jewish Week in 2009 he "will not say if that is his true surname," however taking a nome de goy is common for jews. In the same article Appletree accused Facebook administrators of antisemitism for closing down his account. A Facebook spokesperson replied that the account was terminated because the website did not believe he was using his real name, which is a breach of Facebook's "real name culture". Appletree went on to say that he maintains approximately 40 Facebook groups focused on combating terrorism and antisemitism.
The group says they "specifically target hateful material or material which blatantly promotes hatred or violence, no matter where it can be found." The "About" page of the website says "We believe in direct action both to eradicate the problems we face online and to create the publicity that will cause those with companies like Facebook and Google to take the needed action themselves." On Facebook, The JIDF has redirected anti-Israel Facebook groups to other pages it prefers and changed the names of Muslim members of such groups to "Mossad collaborator," among other actions. A website spokesman told Haaretz that they don't break any laws and that the JIDF "prefers the terms 'seize control,' 'take over' or 'infiltrate' to 'hack'" however hacking is illegal.
Israeli students get paid $2000 to work 5 hours a week from their home. Since the USA gives Israel three billion dollars a year, it has been inferred that the US taxpayer is essentially paying for this.
According to a November 2008 article in Haaretz, the JIDF forwarded lists of Facebook groups that it deemed promoted hatred or violence to the website's administrators, hoping they would be removed. According to a man named "David" quoted in the Haaretz article, Facebook either did nothing or waited months before taking action. "David" told Haaretz that his group then decided to try to technically "intercept Facebook groups and make them impossible to access." The JIDF was particularly upset about Facebook groups praising the shooting of students at Jerusalem's Mercaz HaRav Yeshiva in March 2008.
In July 2009, the JIDF and Avi Dichter took credit for successfully pressuring Facebook into removing a fan page for Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah. The JIDF said it mobilized supporters to complain about the page to Facebook's owners. The JIDF website claims that it deleted the vast majority of a pro-Hezbollah fan page's 118,000 members. The JIDF sites says it has removed more than 100 antisemitic groups from Facebook. The JIDF said in September 2009 that it took over the Facebook group "Eliminate Israel from Being" and deleted more than 5,000 members before Facebook management "returned control of the site to its administrators."
The JIDF has criticized Facebook for allegedly condoning and hosting revisionist groups on its network. The group has charged that it's hypocritical of Facebook to remove groups that support the KKK, for instance, while not removing what it considers Holocaust denial sites and has vowed to keep putting pressure on Facebook over the matter.
Elsewhere on the Web
JIDF's measures "include reporting Wikipedia editors it claims are anti-Israel, and taking action against entries seen as including one-sided or false accounts of the history of Israel and the Mideast conflict," Haaretz wrote.
The JIDF organized a pro-Gilad Shalit campaign in 2009 on the social networking site Twitter. During the Tweet4Shalit campaign Twitter users drove the Gilad Shalit name to the second highest trend on the day of his 23rd birthday. Tweets for Shalit ranged from the demand to "Free Shalit" to requests for international supervision of the case.
April 2014, the YouTube user "AryanTroll" released the video "Shut It Down (Parody of 'Let It Go')"] which quickly became popular. The video spoke about how organizations like the JIDF would try to shut down anything on the internet that criticizes jews. In less than a month, a jewish website called "They Can't - Fighting Antisemitism Online" launched a campaign to shut down the video complaining about their actions. This organization gives a large list of things they have already taken down or are workng to take down.
Jewish students around the world also volunteer to spread pro-Israeli lies across the internet.
Hasbara has shills so much on the world wide web, that they even use dating websites to to promote the Gaza Holocaust. Whenever someone criticizes Israel, hundreds of new accounts appear and argue with people anywhere.
In May 2009, CNN wrote that the JIDF is "sometimes guilty of sweeping generalizations of its own", citing an 2008 interview published on Facebook critic Brian Cuban's site in which a JIDF representative discussed "the issues surrounding [then-candidate Barack Obama's] terrorist connections as well as his racist and anti-Semitic church, which has supported Hamas and the Rev. Louis Farrakhan", and the reply when asked how the Jewish and Muslim communities saw the JIDF, that "99.9% of Muslims hate us".
