Hamas Blusters and Threatens - Israel Laughs

From The Tower
Hackers identifying with Hamas have sent threatening text messages to Israeli mobile phone numbers, via Twitter and on Facebook feeds.

The problem: The Hebrew grammar and spelling are riddled with errors.

Instead of causing fear – as intended – Israelis have reposted the messages with corrections and tips on how to better construct a threatening message.
That's the spirit!
Earlier this week, Hamas hackers overtook the Domino’s Pizza Israel Facebook page, posting threatening messages against Israelis. They didn’t know Israelis have been punching out jokes at a quick pace. Hamas hackers wrote: “Today will strike deep in Israel, Tel Aviv, Haifa, Jerusalem, Ashkelon, Ashdod more than 2000 rockets. We’ll start at 7. Counting back towards the end of Israel … Be warned!”

An Israeli response read: “Hey, please reserve a missile for me with jalapenos, green olives, extra cheese, and mushrooms. You have my address. Tell the delivery boy to activate the alarm when it is arriving, so I know to put my pants on.”
For their part, Hamas appears to be a bit demoralized.  From an Israeli soldier and reported in  the Jerusalem Post, and posted by The Right Curmudgeon (H/T, Joe the Plumber):
... a recognizable wave of demoralization has washed over Hamas’s combat battalions. “They simply escape, leaving behind weapons and suicide bomb vests that were laid out for battle. This morning we stormed a position, and they just weren’t there. I don’t see a determined enemy. We have encountered stronger pockets of fighting in the past. But now, I would not give them a high grade for fighting spirit.”
In the age of social media, it's inevitable that the conflict should spread to Facebook.  It seems, though, that faces aren't the only images that Israelis are posting there as encouragement to the IDF.


  1. What a hoot! Love it.
    Thanks for posting, I needed something light this evening.

  2. Excellent! Hearts and minds, etc.

  3. Yes, lets joke and have fun while we kill mostly innocent people who are just trying to eek out a living day to day. Yes, more weapons from the USA for Gods CHOSEN...Chosen for what??? I find it hilarious watching Jews turn into Nazi's....Let us all revel in the bloodbath.....

  4. Oooh, full tilt moron there, anon.

    Honestly, you have no perspective of reality. Do you think that if Israel wanted the Gaza gone there would be a single person left alive there? They could wipe them all out and not strain their army as much as they're doing now. Nazis? Now that's rich. It shows you have no historical perspective to go with your lack of knowledge of current events.

    Do you honestly think Hamas thinks they can win? By launching crude missiles at Israel? Please! Yeah they hurt if they hit you and they do kill people, but as a weapon of war, they're more like 17th century than 21st. They're just not a serious weapon. So if they don't think they can win, why did they start this?

    Let me break it to you: Hamas isn't trying to win. They're doing this strictly as a publicity campaign, to refresh their "poor widdle victim" card in the press by hiding behind their women and children. If they get to kill a few Jews, fine, they want them all dead anyway. Hamas doesn't give a rat's a** about their kids getting killed, they want them killed. If they didn't want them dead, they wouldn't locate all their military assets in the middle of civilians. It looks better for the useful idiots, like most of the media.

    Don't come around here and play this "moral equivalency" bullcrap. There is no moral equivalency between the sides. Not when Israel has agents call people and tell them, in their native language, that they have 5 minutes to get out of their house because it's going to be destroyed, and across the Strip Hamas launches missiles that fall on their own people.
