  #1 Old 16-11-2012 Unhappy Israel live-tweets assault on Gaza, provides video of assassination

Quote:
Video of missile strike, tweets, and Facebook posts accompany assault on Hamas.

The tweets from @IDFSpokesperson, the official feed of the Israel Defense Forces, announced 12 hours ago "The IDF has begun a widespread campaign on terror sites & operatives in the #Gaza Strip, chief among them #Hamas & Islamic Jihad targets." Dozens more tweets followed, including one announcing the assassination of Ahmed Jabari, the head of Hamas’s military wing.


AllthingsD looked into whether any of these tweets violate Twitter or Facebook terms of service, including rules against threats of violence. Facebook told AllthingsD that it "will not be taking action on the current content posted," and Twitter hadn't weighed in yet.

Israel began its occupation of the Gaza Strip, home to 1.7 million Palestinians, in 1967. Israel pulled out of the territory in 2005, but it launched a war in the strip in December 2008 and blockaded the region for some time afterward. Today's assault was one of the biggest launched against Gaza in the past four years.

Seems like since Obama was reelected, they decided they can finally shit on Hamas and infuriate them by shoving into their face the killing of their agents.

How degrading...

There are two possibilities. Either they did it to celebrate the re-election or just to spite Obama.

Like, "We can do whatever we want even if you're still the President of the big bully in the playground. Take that, tell the media how useless you are. HA!"

Or, "Wow, man. We knew you can do it. Congratz!"

Of course, it depends on your personal view.
