Do you write articles giving the truth about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict? Do you have a Blog known for its anti zionist viewpoints? Have you been getting extra ‘visitors’ to your Blog who leave negative comments or participate in polls?

If yes to any of the above, there is a good reason for all of this….it’s a project called Megaphone Israel. It is a new desktop tool that alerts its subscribers to any entries that might be anti Israel or anti zionist.

After notification, the ‘warriors’ jump into action and attack the source of the article. Are we to quiver in our seats because of this? Are we to stop posting because of this? I THINK NOT!

As long as Israel continues its existing genocidal policies and actions against the people of Palestine, Blogs such as this one will continue to expose their crimes. Where the media fails to, we will present the facts.

So Megaphone Israel should be kept busy for the next (hopefully) short while.

Do any of my readers have suggestions as to how we might also be alerted….. to racist or zionist postings on the Web? We too should be posting OUR comments on their sites, just to let them know we are aware of their ‘games’.

Thanks to Mary Rizzo for the alert on this situation…..

    you know, Steve, the temptation is very great to “subscribe” to them, to see who and what they are highlighting, but upon a bit of investigation, one finds that you don’t even have to “act”, being subscribed is enough for them to automatically “act” for you by inserting “their” response to polls in your place! This is indeed spamming, and if there are any internet abuse experts out there, I wish they would get on the case. This cannot be considered to be truly representative of polls, because one does not evaluate or even need to participate to be counted.

    As to alerting them to the articles around there, the list they had seemed a bit dated. As much as they are warriors who really work out all the tools, they don’t seem to have them updated in any important way, although the internet recruitment is much heavier because they have programs and educational tools dedicated precisely to this.

    I really think that there needs to be a competent effort made by the many talented IT experts who are on our side to create a similar tool, but to avoid the abuse aspects of it. That we can be alerted to the lie factory and to polls and such.

    I covered this on my blog 6 days ago, it’s not just GIYUS, the worst group is calld JIDF e.g. Jewish Internet Defense Force, they target blogs at wordpress, blogger,and also accounts at facebook, youtube and other social networks. They are also targeting WIKI as well.They have closed down many sites and accounts. you can read about it here and i giv elinks to the acounts they are targeting now.


    Hi Mary:) it’s Ban Side from Palestian mothers:):) you are right we need to have some type of campaign to inform the public what they are attempting to do. We should talk to others at Palestinain Mothers to see if we have any techie people in the group for advice. I think i’ve seen a few there who work in that field, maybe Iqbal can help.

    If any of you access the internet via a school or work network, you should be aware of firewalls and blocking software. One of the most popular is “Websense” as it allows the admins to simply download new block lists (buy them) from various 3rd party sites, for ease of use.

    If your network is using websense, you might have noticed sites like this one are being unjustly blocked. I took this up with my boss, as I work in IT for the government. He refuses to inform me where they get the block lists, but after my pestering, he atleast told me what’s up.

    The sites in question are almost always dealing with the Gaza occupation, usually biased towards the Palestinians. Sometimes, just specific blog postings/articles are blocked while the rest of the page is unaltered.

    It never fails, pro Israel = fine, pro Palestinian = blocked, negative towards Israel = blocked, negative towards Gaza = fine.

    My boss actually admitted he thinks they are unjust blocks, as they are flagged as racism/hate speech sites. This is absurd as the blocks themselves are patently racist.

    So yes, them posting stupid comments is a problem, them sending trojan virii out is bad, them launching a concerted effort to have any and all sites labeled anti-zionist blocked from government, work, and school networks is just plain stupid.

    They have created these anti-hate speech laws, and are using them to silence ALL critics of Israel.

    Mentioning Israel used White Phosphorous in Gaza is not anti-semitism, or racism, or hate speech, it’s a proven fact. But that doesn’t matter, as they control the government, their minions do their bidding, and we all suffer.

    I for one offer my support in creating and maintaining a webbased list of pro-Israel blogs to monitor. I’d rather not take part in stupid comments and poll skewing, but I would like to start a movement to get THEIR racist crap blocked.

    I work in IT, I have a good knowledge base when it comes to networking, and I’ve created and hosted a few webservers in my day. But really, something like twitter would be ideal, quick and to the point.

    I’d also like to find some of these sites that are supplying bogus block lists, and take action against them.

    I read somewhere when I was researching this stuff, where a person did join to do that, but I am not sure how that went for them or if it worked. The emgaphone thing is not the real threat, it just skews online polls and such, the real group to worry about is JIDF. they have a youtube channel, facebook group and are involved in many places online, they have a much bigger membership and have had success in closing down peoples accounts, blogs and pages sadly

    the best thing you can do is the limit the number of words each person can publish so that they dont “publish” on your website
    i say 10 lines per person is enough

But zionism distorts theTruth and their theory of commuications is based initially in all cases on the principle that bullshit baffles brains. You try and baffle North Americans with half-truths and political PRopaganda. Your stern gang tactics don’t work in North America any more! Is there nothing new under your Igrun sun?

    Good comments here, lots of information! I will read all of this carefully later, and Irish, we will have to work something out. I want to post Steve’s article and yours (will do that tomorrow at some point) on PTT, and yes, we need to find a good solution.

    I am very interested in the techy comments here too, but just wanted to shout out for a second that if one signs up for megaphone, they run the risk of every time that they turn on their computer, they are filling in a poll, because of the built in mechanism it seems that there is where they automatically fill in the polls according to their own view! Also, it is not good to have a bit of spyware on your computer. Although, it would be great to use their own weapon against them, as you say!!!

    the assaults get tiresome. every darn where one posts. how many times can one be branded as the “raving anti-Semite!” before it starts to wear on the soul? I mean, I realize that this is war. It is war in some vague “polite” manner. However, where are the medics? Medic? Medic? By the by Steve, are you angry with me? Just asking. The wounds cause frustration and the frustration raises doubts and so… sorry for being whiny.

    It’s one thing if they were against the article because it posted blatant untruths about the Jewish people, but entirely different when the plain facts are denied out of hand.
    I get the impression these people are voting against articles and websites because of negative things being said about Zionists – even if they are true.
    There is no attempt to draw out the truth or investigate – just an instinctive defensive posture. It seems to stem from hysterical over-reaction and propaganda to cover up the truth of how Palestinians are now being neglected and/or killed. I am sure if the average Jewish citizen living in the US would be ashamed of their bretherens’ actions, were it not for this “smokescreen”. It seems very strange that the Zionists get all crazed if someone denies the WWII holocaust ever happened, but is OK with justifying the holocaust happening right now in Gaza.

    Not 100% sure about this, but I recall reading about this Megaphone and it assumes you are pro-Israel from the get-go. If installed on your computer, it would only allow you to vote in favor of the Israeli side of the argument/topic, never AGAINST – which makes it completely useless. Besides, I have enough trouble with spyware on my computer without inviting the Mossad inside for a look around!

    Some Zionist started posting “anonymous” comments on my Bible blog several months ago at
    http://christnotreligion.blogspot.com, saying I was “naughty” (a favorite Zionist byword when they don’t want to outright call you “anti-Semitic”) for suggesting that “anonymous” (a “Lithuanian Jew”) was not a true Israelite but a Khazar. After responding to a comment “anonymous” basically threatened to sue me. After that, I put up a “Legal Notice” and then blocked all anonymous comments, calling this person a coward. For the most part, these “megaphonies” are just cowards. So I would block “anonymous” comments, as just about all comments by these folks are “anonymous.”

    You might want to take a look at the tool “Http Analyzer” as it allows you to intercept packets and poke around inside them. I used this method *cringe* to cheat ratios on a few torrent sites.

    If megaphone is webbased, which it obviously is as it updates via the web, you *should* be able to intercept it’s traffic.

    This serves SEVERAL purposes.

    firstly, it will show you WHO it’s contacting (tho a good firewall will too) which gives you the option to go after them, or DDoS them.

    Secondly, it potentially gives you the ability to modify what the application is saying to it’s server. You could theoretically modify the program to do the opposite of what they intended, then post that version all over the place.

    Actually, that’s a great idea, reverse engineer the application and use it to fight back.

    I don’t suggest anyone installs it tho, as Israel has teams of hackers working for them, DDoSing sites and hacking and such. They also have a built in back door into the US/Canadian phone system. I bet every dollar in my account they have a backdoor rootkit installing with megaphone, just in case.

    One more thing, if we can break the encryption (if any is used) we could theoretically spoof the server. This tool works by you installing it, then it pulls down updates from a server somewhere, telling the program which polls to vote on, etc etc.

    If we can spoof THAT server, there’s a good chance we could turn the tables, and have these morons voting on our side, without them even knowing.

    Well, at least you are making the public aware of this. If there is a sliver lining, it is that people should always be skeptical of what they read on the net because things are not what they seem. Corporations do this kind of thing too, to create favorable opinions for products or unfavorable opinions for social movements they think might hurt them.

    There is a site that contains a S.H.I.T. (self hating jews) list.

    I find it very useful whenever I read an article written by a jew.


    I check the S.H.I.T. list, if they are on it, then I can be assured that they are reasonably reliable.

    It works both ways.

    It is also a truly disgusting site …as you would expect from the “chosen ones”.

    They ARE truly god’s chosen people….God chose them to demonstrate to the rest of humanity all that is Evil, Disgusting and Inhuman….in short…what a human being should NOT aspire to.

It is easier to do it, but it is better if you have a computer only for that to be safe with spyes and virus.

    I was branded a “racist” by our local newspaper and banned for life, for commenting with pro-Palestinian views during the Gaza genocide. This particular paper comes out of Sun Valley, Idaho….one of the countries wealthiest cities. It’s where Allen & Co. hold their annual meeting of the elite. The board of directors is comprised of Zionists and their editorial staff is driven by them. Please flood this paper with anti-Zionist comments to give them something to do, run a search for Palestinian or Gaza and quite a few articles come up. Help me keep these “elite” in check.

    But, it is important to remember that while the zios are very busy and active doing what they do, in the past 4 years, my blogs and the site I do with two others were hacked a few times, but the person who claimed victory when Peacepalestine was locked was a Jewish Anti-Zionist, Tony Greenstein. He bragged about it for days until it my blog was run through the works to see if it contained anything he claimed, and as it was not, they had to apologise and unblock. (Until the next round, when all Blogger clients had this happen). It is not only the Zionists who want to control what is said, and who has a right to say it (and I loved those comments by Stanley K, so true), but there are many even obstensibly “on our side” who spend the better part of their time smearing us, attacking us and suing us… and trying to close us down.

    After some stories about the academic and cultural boycott against Israel and some follow-up Op-Eds I tried posting on my campus newspaper under my actual name (as I always do for articles in the campus paper) and was set upon by anonymous posters calling me a Nazi and mocking “Sieg Heil!”

    Mind you, I had merely rebutted some typical Israeli misinformation/disinformation (referencing in one comment, JewsAgainstZionism) and the ad hominems flowed freely (with several calls for me to be fired). The overall level of discourse of most of the pro-Zionist comments wasn’t much better than a pie fight, but it was disturbing to me that those acting as ‘brownshirts’ would monopolized the discussion.

    On a more positive note, there were also many comments supporting the professor who was calling for the boycott and actually saying his courage made them immensely proud of their university.

    One other thing that I noticed, that I’m sure others have encountered, that it seems pro-justice for Palestine comments get weeded out by gatekeepers. I contacted the site admin (College Publisher) to inquire as to the reason (they said when I put in any links it was blocked automatically), but other comments that should have gone through didn’t (with other people complaining of the same). This seems to happen too frequently to be all coincidence as far as I’m concerned, and it was clear that it serves to pour cold water on a discussion that is obviously of interest to the student body.

    Things are changing, however slowly. I’m in full agreement that any technical solution to help mitigate the mischief is welcome.

    Love your commitment to justice, Steve. Thanks for helping others find their voice as well.
