JIDF 4chan operations for Feb 2011
Jewish Internet Defense Force (offsite)

This upcoming February we will be launching our largest operation on 4chan and other popular image boards, our objective is to create an image of Palestinians and Lebanese being virulently anti-American and anti-Western.

  • Create threads against Israel and fill them with posts from violent Jihadist Palestinians, claim to want to immigrate into the West to do Jihad, later on in the threads post links to propaganda films like Pallywood.
  • Exploit massive Lebanese immigration into Australia as a reason why the Australian people should support Israel.
  • Claim that Israel helps stop Muslim immigration into the West.
  • Post propaganda threads linking to Palestinian and Lebanese suicide bombers and other Muslim extremism, in these threads also reply as a Jew who has been affected by Jihadist violence, explain to the readers that Muslims are a threat to the West.
  • Start threads claiming to be Lebanese-Americans or Palestinian-Englanders, portray yourselves as extremely anti-Israel, later on in these threads claim to be a Jew disgusted by the behavior of the Lebanese/Palestinian man.

    I think it’s painfully amateurish. Things you read on 4chan are not to be taken with a pinch of salt but bucketloads of it.

    Whatever they want to achieve (sympathy? support?) goes down the drain when you expose this fantastic plan of theirs…

    Shouldn’t their headline read
    JITF 4chan operations for Feb 2011?

    Or is JIDF short for Jewish Internet Daft Force, and this is just another example of that famous Jewish sense of humour the parents of starved, maimed, disfigured and murdered Palestinian children keep hearing about?

    Claim that Israel helps stop Muslim immigration into the West(!!!!!!).

    If you spend any time on 4chan, which can often be a surprisingly rewarding experience (of course you must self-filter what you browse but this faith-credibility-death is an entirely healthy benefit of the internet and appropriate loads of other places), you will see this kind of “kill the juice” self-straw-manning.

    K & Y, so the channel operators don’t care about sock puppets? Well, if there was ever a blow-up and a scandal, they could still identify the IPs, unless they are part of the provocation.

    This is a hoax. We never sent out such a message.

    OK. Wikipedia has a long history of 4chan lunacies:
    Among other things, it is claimed that “it is intimately connected to Anonymous, the shadowy internet group.”
    The MD5 checksum is a nice touch, isn’t it?

    the channel operators don’t care about sock puppets?

    Supervision at 4chan is definitively irregular, and it is to be assumed that everyone there is a sock puppet several layers deep and playing three roles.

    The original poster we saw claimed to have obtained it from within JIDF’s own board, not from a distributed message.

    (This will be a more secretive modification of what was emailed, we don’t want to out ourselves)

    There is good content and meaningless stuff and utter trash on Christopher “Moot” Poole’s mighty 4chan, and its sometimes shocking freedom leaves grown-ups to sort things out for themselves. However, two trends crashed like a dramatic synthesis recently. 4chan has had “JIDF”-type extreme hasbarah and it’s had a variety of responses to this, some racist, much ironic-racist (suiting the proprietary shock humor of the site), and increasingly a more restrained, responsible response to JIDF claims which appealed more strongly to neutral outsiders. The other trend is that Moot has been aggressively pursuing respectability, holding interviews and chats (even a recent public appearance), and seeking better control over the content.
    Recently we revisited 4chan to find /new/, the thread in which much JIDF fighting took place (besides sundry other forms of nationalism/anti-nationalism), erased. Commenting about the problem of (non-Jewish) minority assimilation in the thread /int/, in which we neutrally and briefly mentioned the experience of the Jewish community (surely the favorite illustration of the assimilation question), we found our IP banned with the admonition “keep /new/ out of /int/.”
    The only possible explanation is that filtering software tracks the appearance of “Jewish” and related words.
    It is well-established that this is already the case elsewhere on 4chan for certain offensive words such as the popular name of the male organ. Furthermore, it appears that unless a human moderator sees your post, an inoffensive comment about Jewish history will get you in trouble but racism about a well-disguised, unfiltered pseudonym will not.
    An exciting follow-up: somebody has posted an excerpt and a photo from therecent Israel house-storming story Rowan posted under “maybe it was a suicide.”
    The result: the first response was simply the word “reported” (meaning that commenter asked the moderators to ban the original poster or OP and erase his post). A few comments later another snarls, “reported,” and a bit on one (more?) commenter writes, “I have just reported you for openning [sic] antisemitic [sic] threads. Enjoy your ban.”
    It should be noted that several other commenters appear to come to OP’s aid: several “bump” his thread, which is to say they register interest which keeps the thread from expiring from “natural” (content-unrelated) reasons, but without leaving any particular comment; and a few specifically ask how a news report from a reputable mainstream source can be anti-Semitic. OP’s thread-opening post was simply the cut and pasted news story without commentary or slurs. One said, “Sup JIDF,” and another, “apparently anything the joos [sic – but note the spelling] don’t like is antesimitic [sic].”

    Why are we supposed to love Muslims and be nice to them? Before the year 2000, no one gave shit about them but now we are supposed to like them or else we are evil evil nazi racists. Obama told NASA to reach out to the Muslim community, which makes no sense for them to do that. So I dont understand, what is this reason I am not aware of?

    Any racial supremacist Holocaust Survivors still pretending they can’t understand why so many non-jews find the micro-managed (Never Again) ‘H-story’ so insulting and indigestible should keep a copy of this thread as a reminder.

    I maintain that this is false, and a hoax.

    4chan is hardly on our radar. We focus on big sites like Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, etc. – where there are clear rules and TOS.

    There’s not much we can do or are interested in doing in forums like 4chan.

    Oh, and in case you don’t believe this is the JIDF, here’s a

    well, it’s certainly not worth my while to try to go undercover on 4chan, or even to discuss the idea. I’m too old.

    But if you are really a member or ‘officer’ of the the JIDF, I take this opportunity to appeal to you: can’t you see that ‘Jews’ are not an endangered species, but an artificially constructed category of people, used by powerful cynics as lightning rods, blast deflectors, and scapegoats? Why do you bother with all this? What is good and interesting in Judaism really should be regarded as universally applicable to all human beings, and what is bad in it — the idea that a particular gene pool, the ‘children of israel’, is or should be superhuman — is offensive.
