Woke up this morning and checked my Facebook and Twitter accounts for any breaking news. Surprised to learn of a social media campaign launched by Hamas in Gaza using the hashtag #AskHamas. Apparently, Hamas leaders are trying to reach western audiences (hence the English!) with the goal of breaking down the “terrorist” label that some Western governments have slapped on the group.
I applaud them for this effort, but it shouldn’t have come to anyone’s surprise that the Zionists (maybe not all Zionists but the rabid fools) have occupied the Twitter-sphere all day using foul language and grotesque pictures.
The Washington Post reported that their Twitter campaign backfired. The Israeli ynetnews.com reported the torrent of abuse the twitter campaign has already received. The Times of Israel, ABC News, Haaretz, Times of India, and FOX News all jumped in to announce how the Twitter campaign “backfired”. I won’t be surprised if this simple Twitter campaign doesn’t make the nightly TV news in the United States this evening. I’ll be watching.
So maybe these commentators are correct, if the Hamas organizers wanted a rational Q & A on social media, then it certainly backfired because 99% (my estimate) of the Tweets appear to be from hatemongers, Zionist trolls, and Israeli apologists. They have spewed forth so much vitriolic venom in the last 12 hours that #AskHamas has actually been trending in America. Amazing!
On the other hand, if Hamas wanted to grab the attention of the western mainstream media and expose these rabid hatemongers, then this campaign has exceeded beyond anyone’s imagination.
So I encourage folks to check out #AskHamas on Twitter. And post a serious question or two.
Apologies in advance, but I think it’s instructive to see some examples of the Zionists’ idiocy.

Do you have bacon flavored bacon?
Don’t these fools understand how their comments reflect back on them? I’m embarrassed on their behalf.
