Calls for 'third Intifada' on Facebook

2011-03-10 19:00

Tel Aviv - Palestinians were being urged for the first time via such internet-based social networks as Facebook and Twitter to launch a "third Intifada" (uprising) against Israel.

The unidentified initiators said on Thursday that more than 52 000 Facebook members had so far clicked the "like" button for the call showing a clenched fist in the colours of the Palestinian flag and the slogan "Palestine will be freed and we will free it".

The call said that, after the uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya, it was now time for an uprising in Palestine.

Inhabitants of surrounding Arab countries were being urged to march toward Palestine on May 15, the so-called Nakba Day - "day of the catastrophe" referring to the date of Israel's creation in 1948.

By May, the initiators hope to have reached millions of people via the Facebook network, and they also warned against any attempts to block the call. If Facebook blocked the site, then Muslims would boycott Facebook, they warned.

Meanwhile B'tselem, the Israeli centre for human rights in the Palestinian territories, on its website noted the blood toll of the previous two Intifada uprisings in 1987 and 2000.

It said the first Intifada cost the lives of about 1 400 Palestinians and 270 Israelis. The second Intifada resulted in the loss of about 4 800 Palestinian lives.

By Israeli foreign ministry accounts, a total of 542 people were killed in 140 Palestinian suicide attacks between 2000 and 2007.

      Dis uitstekend gestel! Nou gaan die Moslems die almagtige en sterke hand van God voel, en dieselfde sin baan dit die weg na die wegraping sodat die antichris op die wêreld toneel kan verskyn. Toe ek die berig gelees het toe voel ek opgewonde en gespanne terselfdetyd.

    With all these wars nowadays, the 2012 doomsday sayers might just be right... it's becoming like a runaway train.

      You are right, the world has gone mad. The antichrist will be destroyed completely. They are rushing headlong to their doom.

    These people don't get it. Every time these ppl try voilence to solve the "Israel" issue they get exactly the same from ISrael in turn, then they turn around and cry "WAR CRIMES, HUMAN RIGHTS VIOATIONS, ect ect ect"

      The COWARDLY Arab/Islamic world uses the plight of the Palestinians as a front, 'cannon fodder', and human shields (including wommen and CHILDREN) for their quest for Jerusalem (The strategic centre of the world)and their goals for regional and global domination!!!!! Then along come the misinformed western bleeding-heart liberals who dont realize that they're just being used! STUPIDITY! Viva Israel! - the last bastion of the free world.

    israel spends all it time on defense/weapons ... because israel is scared of the day when Muslims (Asians, Africans, Arabs, Europeans, Americans, and from all over the world) unite. _- PALESTINE 15 - 5 - 2011

      Muslim's will unite for what? To be nuked by Israel's last form of defence? Millions of your fellow kind to be martyred? for what? For a promise in paradise & martyrdom? c'mon what is up with you ppl and death... live for life, not death! Enough of destruction... believe me, Allah wanted more for you ppl then murder and blood. Allah wants the Palestinians to have a state along side the Israel in peace… As long as you people support terror (Hamas, Hezbollah) you will always be on the losing side. Your support of destruction will pour more “native” Palestinian blood. Support peace for once you bunch of violent humans… don’t give Israel a reason to defend herself. Love Life! Not Death!

    @ MUSLIM.. Partly you are right. According to my bible (Ezekiel 38 - 39) Israel will be devostated due to the massive crowds of fighters entering their land. Israel would be out-numbered, but on that day, while they're busy entering, they (the Arabs and Russians) will cross paths will the God of the Israelies, the God of heaven and earth.. the God Almighty, and He will help Israel, and Israel will burn their weapons for 7 years long, and the wild birds of the sky will on that day eat from the bodies of the dead Arabs and Russian till drop! So go ahead, I'm looking forward for some action! ;-)

      Are you sure your bible mentioned Russians

      smurfdogg - 2011-03-26 20:07

      Yep, it's the Russians alright. In that passage three names are mentioned; Rosh, Meshech and Tubal. Rosh is Greek for Russia. Meshech's name evolved a few times to what it is today, Moscow. Tubal's modern name is Tubolsk. The worrying aspect is Russia's growing influence on the middle east crisis. The Arabs will not attack Israel without the backing of a major military power. They need Russia.
