“YOUR AD CAN APPEAR HERE”
The orange box in the upper right corner advertises the possibilities of a Google Ad, with the words (to add insult to injury, in Hebrew): “Your ad can appear here”, while the box superimposed on the stabbing of a Zionist (Jew) image carries the phrase “The best ideas occur outside the office.”
Booking.com in the upper right corner finds itself advertising trips to Brussels next to a demonstration of how to kill an Israeli. The super-imposed box is an ad (again in Hebrew) for a company called Foodalicious, which offers to “prepare the perfect dessert for you”: a nut tart available in the bakery section at Israel’s Super Sol supermarket chain.
FINALLY THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA DISCUSSES TERROR ADS ON FACEBOOK
[Note by Tom Gross]
I have written several times over the years on the role of social media and Google in colluding with terrorists. Recently the wider media has begun writing about this, for example in Ireland and Australia.
On March 17, the Times of London reported that a taxpayer-funded British government agency was unwittingly funding extremists through advertising on a video platform.
Its investigation revealed rape apologists, anti-Semites and banned hate preachers were getting money from the ads through the YouTube revenue sharing model.
According to the Times of London, a YouTube poster typically receives $7.60 for every 1,000 views of an advert displayed with one of their videos.
AT&T, Lyft, Johnson & Johnson, Verizon, GlaxoSmithKline, Volkswagen, Toyota, Ford and others have pulled their ads from YouTube as a result, knocking 4% off the company’s value in a single week.
TWITTER PROMOTES A TERRORIST WITH SELFIE IMAGE
On Saturday afternoon (April 1) a 17-year-old Palestinian terrorist stabbed and injured three Israeli Jews (aged 18, 20, and in his early 20s) in the old city of Jerusalem before being shot dead by Israeli police as he attempted to kill more Israeli civilians. It was the second such attack in a week, egged on by almost nonstop incitement in the media of the Palestinian Authority, which is western-funded.
Before Saturday’s attack, the terrorist (from Nablus) posed for selfies (above) at the Dome of the Rock and shared them on twitter, encouraging others to kill infidels on behalf of Allah.
Twitter still has that photo up here. (Update: the text has now been changed on the twitter account.)
FATAH CALLS FOR MORE MURDER
The Palestinian Authority’s Fatah’s student movement has announced in official Palestinian media that April 17 will be a day of terror for Israelis both within the pre- and post-1967 borders.
The Fatah announcement reads: “Let us turn April 17, 2017 into a fire that will burn the occupiers and burn the land like an inferno… Remember the Wadi Al-Haramiya operation [i.e. the terror attack in March 2002 which ten persons were murdered], the Ein Arik operation [the terror attack in February 2002 in which six people were murdered], and the hundreds of heroic operations that were carried out by Fatah members and the fighters of our people.”
This statement appeared on the official Fatah Facebook page on March 29, 2017, and remains up as I write.
THE EUROPEAN ROLE
After last month’s terror attack near the House of Commons in London, in which 4 people were killed, Amber Rudd, the British Home Secretary (interior minister), said:
“Each attack confirms again the role that the Internet is playing in serving as a conduit, inciting and inspiring violence, and spreading extremist ideologue of all kinds.”
And yet the British (as well as other western governments) continue to help pay for exactly this kind of incitement on the web pages of Mahmoud Abbas’s Palestinian Authority.
Several British MPs, including senior members of the cabinet, subscribe to this list, as well as various American, Canadian and European politicians and diplomats, and I would again suggest that they might wish to review their policy.
There is also another dispatch today, which can be read here:
