Are you caught in social media crossfire over Gaza?
I am caught in social media crossfire. Friends and relatives on both sides of the I/P debate. I can't share much of what I receive because I can't translate it. I will share two examples from the past couple of days to give you all an idea of what my Facebook newsfeed looks like.
Hamas terrorists usually fired rockets at israeli towns from civilian areas in Gaza b because they knew IDF retaliatiaon would raise the number of civilian casualties and cause harm to israel's image in the international arena.
A former victim of the Palestinian terrorist groups’ use of human shields has courageously appeared on a national American television network to defend IDF military actions in Gaza. Brigitte Gabriel, author of ‘Because They Hate,’ appeared on the Fox News cable television network program, ‘The Kelly File,’ to discuss the question of whether or not Israel is to blame for the many civilian casualties in Gaza.
What she had to say – in lightly Arabic-accented in Israel – may have been a complete surprise to the millions of American viewers who have been fed on a steady diet of little other than scenes of bleeding, dead children and women with Israeli soldiers and gunfire.
