Internet Defense Force

The Jews have one. 

A group calling itself the Jewish Internet Defense Force (JIDF) hacked into a Facebook group called, “Israel” is not a country!… … Delist it from Facebook as a country!” early Sunday morning, erasing thousands of members’ names from the site. The JIDF was founded by an American Jew in response to a terrorist attack that took the lives of eight young yeshiva students in Jerusalem earlier this year.“This is a major victory against Jew haters,” proclaimed a JIDF source who spoke on condition of anonymity. The source said the group “goes after Jew-hating internet sites.” More than 4,000 names were deleted from the anti-Semitic “Israel is not a country!” group’s database by the hackers.

A JIDF statement posted on the hacked site announced, “This was one of the most vile, most antisemitic, most pro-Jihad and most disgusting, and most importantly, most ACTIVE hate groups on the internet. It actively promoted hatred, violence, murder, and genocide. Despite tens of thousands of complaints, Facebook wouldn’t remove it, as they claimed that this incitement to murder was “legitimate political discourse” – Facebook’s negligence and abdication of responsibility gave us no option but to take matters in our own hands…..”

Jewish Internet Defense Force ‘seizes control’ of anti-Israel Facebook group

The Jewish Internet Defense Force, a group that claims to have 5,000 members worldwide, says it is steadily removing members from a viciously anti-Israel and anti-Semitic group on Facebook, having taken control of the group on Sunday.

 The Jewish Internet Defense Force (JIDF) describes itself as a group of Jewish activists who fight anti-Semitism and terrorism trends throughout the Internet. It says it formed as a grassroots effort in 2000, mainly to mount mass e-mail campaigns, in response to the second intifada. It then began operating on various Web sites, including Facebook, to spread news about Israel and Jewish issues.

Thanks, Mike. I’ll spread this around to the Jawa Internet Defense Force.
