JIDF Pride

THE FAZ: Your greatest success probably was the closing of the huge “Israel is not a country” group in September. But there are already new groups with the same name growing up again. How long will you go on tilting at windmills and leading a fight you probably can’t never win? I mean, this probably cost you lots of energy.

JIDF: Actually, we don't define that as a "great success." The great success is unifying like minded people in this effort and exposing problems with the hopes that others learn of the concerns and join us in our fight.

If "success" is determined by numbers, we seized a much larger group with 118,787 members which actively promoted official Hezbollah webpages and forums and was recruiting members. Since most people have ~300 friends on Facebook, and because Facebook groups appear in Friends' profiles so that everyone can see them, this group -- and, therefore, Hezbollah -- was getting advertised and promoted to ~35 million people daily.

However, the number of members has now significantly decreased, thanks to JIDF effort. At the moment, this group has 35,754 12,272 members. The number is steadily declining. However, as of this moment, 83,033 106,515 members have been removed. Here is the link to the actual group in question, . The group was created in Arabic and its stated purpose (according to its Arabic title) was to gain over a million people in the group to hate Israel in 90 days time. It had over 118,000 people in it, and it was promoting official Hezbollah forums. The JIDF has now closed the group and are now in the process of deleting all its members in an effort to delete the group as a whole. Here is our announcement of the takeover.

On a side note, there have been reports that Hezbollah is using Facebook to spy on the IDF, which might be of interest.

There have been dozens of other groups, including:
  • (over 1,600 members removed, deleted group)
  • (147 members removed, deleted group)
  • (over 4,100 members removed, deleted group)
  • ""Holocaust": The Lie""
  • (over 70 members removed, deleted group)
  • another "Israel is NOT a Country" group
  • (over 3,200 members, deleted group)
  • "Stop the HOLOCAUST against GAZA"
  • (over 1,900 members removed, deleted group)
  • (about the creation of Israel, over 225 members removed, deleted group)
  • Regina Skins
  • (neo-nazi skinhead group, 95 members removed, deleted group)
  • "I bet that there is 1,000,000 person hates Israel"
  • (over 80 members removed, deleted group)
