Besides the bloody war taking place between Israel and Palestine, there is even a more dangerous war being held on social media platforms and press. It is no more about who is losing more souls than being about who is gaining people’s sympathy and support. Social media has always been a significant tool in shaping netizans’ views and affecting their opinions and attitudes ; adopting a fixed view is hardly there.
Bassim – Peirs conversion as a model..
Obviously, people no more take one view as granted, abundance and diversity of resources make it harder! The interesting conversation between the Egyptian Basim Yousif and the British Piers Morgan, for example, received a wide range of interaction and attention among people. Those thirty minutes were proven to have changed the attitudes of a considerable number of people concerning the current conflict between the two sides ! This led the two to think of holding another meeting.
A boycott born in platforms and raised by netizans..
Leading a boycott was not that easy decision to be taken or even achieved. There is no doubt that boycott affects economy directly ;economy affects psychology and mindset. Boycotting Semitic – supporters will definitely affect them badly, at least to feel left out. It is likely to keep a positive mindset among the supporters of Palestinians and Palestinians themselves,by the way.
Rumors and faking facts..
Since the first day of the war, Israel and its supporters have been faking the truth and manipulating events in their favor. Misleading the public has been the job of a big number of zionist journals and programs. The information they spread on social media is badly feigned ; massacring infants, hitting Al-Ahli hospital, torturing captives, and striking Sinai are all silly lies created by Israel and were attributed unfairly to Palestine and its military. Calling the truth ‘claim’ and putting ‘assured’ before lies are repeatedly depended on by Israel supporting gazettes. The forgery has even spanned to the extent that Israel used the every available footage of Palestinian martyrs as Israeli civilians. If you visit the Facebook account of the spokesman of the Israeli army, you will find his videos on which he cuts verses from the Holy Quran and condemns Muslims for not abiding by them! So funny that you may laugh instead of having a heart attack. There is nothing more explicit than what have been mentioned that could prove it is a psychological war!
