About the JIDF


The Jewish Internet Defense Force (JIDF) is a private, independent, non-violent protest organization representing a collective of activists, operating under the name "Jewish Internet Defense Force" since the 2008 massacre at the Mercaz HaRav Yeshiva in Jerusalem.

We're on the cutting edge of pro-Israel digital online advocacy, presenting news, viewpoints, and information throughout a large network reaching hundreds of thousands via email, Facebook, YouTube, RSS feeds, Twitter, and other digital hubs to those who share our concerns for Israel and about about antisemitic and jihadist online content.

Our ACTION ALERTS are now well known throughout the Jewish and Israel advocacy world, and by our many enemies, as they have led to the removal of thousands of antisemitic and jihadist pages online. Whether it's an antisemitic Facebook page with millions of members, or a YouTube video promoting global jihad, our team is on it, monitoring it, and urging companies to adhere to their own rules.

We believe in direct action both to eradicate the problems we face online and to create the publicity that will cause those with the power to take action (companies like Facebook and Google) to do the right thing.

We work to bring together different individuals and represent the new generation of Jewish leaders, a new approach, and a real grassroots effort for change!

The founder of the JIDF, David Appletree, was honored to speak at the WUJS Congress 2009: "Unlocking our Future", alongside the IDF Spokesperson department. The WUJS represents 1.5 million Jewish students, worldwide. The conference was sponsored by the World Jewish Congress, World Zionist Organization, Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Israeli Knesset, and others.

Internationally, we have consulted various government and non-governmental agencies seeking our expertise in online counter-terror ops, as well as online community building and digital strategies.  Our work has been a featured throughout the international media in publications like Israel National News (Arutz Sheva), the Jerusalem Post, Washington Post, FOX, CNN, USA Today, TIME Magazine, BBC, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Telegraph UK, Jewish News Agency - Argentina, NewsRU Israel - Russia, AM 1370 Baltimore, WNWR 1540 Philadelphia, K-Talk Radio 630 Utah, Ha'aretz, GlobalTV Canada, Jewish Tribune Canadian Jewish News, and in the "Daily Alert" which is prepared for the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations by the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, and more.

At this time, there is no official membership or dues to be a part of the JIDF. However, we welcome everyone that's supportive of the cause and respectful of our views to join thousands of others in our various online forums (on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc.), and we certainly welcome financial support, as well.
