Hasbara Troll brigade

Hasbara Trolls are generally quite polite at first. They pop up when someone is critical of Israel and it’s policies or interests. They target, write, engage, educate and insult. From my research it seems that there is some kind of hierarchy of trolls, they have leaders who tell them targets and guide them with their spin. Most work voluntarily but some are paid for by wealthy sponsors. They track topical keywords and persons using public websites such as topsy.com. Problems arise if one rejects the explanations being offered by the trolls, then their troll nature becomes apparent very quickly as they resort to
Classic insults: Anti-semite, Neo- Nazi, White Supremacist, Holocaust denier
Adept with social networks well trained on IT
Hasbara trolls use internet alerts to warn them when hot keywords are mentioned. Keywords such as Israel, Jewish, Judaism etc. When those words are mentioned they are alerted and they go to investigate who is talking about what. I have seen this happen many times with Gilad Atzmon, someone will post something from Gilad, shortly afterwards they are bombarded by hasbara trolls. Initially they explain where they had gone wrong and try to ‘educate’ people with their ideology.

Hasbara is an Hebrew word defined as explanation. The purpose of Hasbara is to explain and educate western people about the Israeli mission. Hasbara can take many forms, adverts, websites, comments on blogs, letter writing, protests and so on. For a fuller idea of the depth of Hasbara check this tool-kit from the We Believe in Israel Website. (made by BICOM). The difference between propaganda and hasbara? I would say Hasbara is more of a soft sell at first, it seeks to inform, influence and educate the ignorant to the Israeli cause. The narrative of Hasbara has a victimized quality underpinning it, a very passive-aggressive approach, Israel is always defending not attacking. They play the mis-understood victim and invite their critics to attack them. The sub-current being that Israel’s message is not understood. Israel views that the reason for this is either lack of education or stupidity. So the Hasbara agents explain until they realise that they are getting nowhere and then respond with disdain and

Hasbara Tactics

By controlling information one can control people and the social networks. Hasbara volunteers help to police social networks for Israel. The big media are dealt with through BICOM and AIPAC, whilst the social media are policed unofficially by the Hasbara troll brigade. Priority is to stop influencers being compromised by anti-Israel sentiment.

LMAO, from the well known impartial Jewish propaganda website.
I can tell you this Cold Dumbfuck, I was born in 1960.
For the first 20 years of my life I supported Isreals right to exist.
Slowly but surely the pattern of ethnic cleansing, and outright repeated murder of civilians, the assassinations in other countries by Mossad, followed by research into the history of the formation of Israel by the UN (who had No right to do so ).
I learned that the first tactic of Hasbara is to accuse anyone who critics Israel of being anti Semitic, playing on the well deserved sympathy for the terrible events of WW2. Your next move of course is the look over there they are worse tactic you just tried. Keep trying.
The pattern of lies and propaganda was slowly revealed for the complete fantasy it is.
I have no bias against any religion or race at all, I have no problems with the Jewish faith, apart from the ones I have with all imaginary sky friends.
So you can keep spreading the cry wolf Hasbara a much as you like, I will still judge Isreal by it's actions, bombing schools and hospitals, killing children, the constant land theft, collective punishment, continue to this day.

Lastly of course is the rampant Islamaphobia your posting history shows.

Same old hasbara lies eh, the world doesn't believe you any more shill boy. The current Israelis are from Eurpoe, and simple thieves and murderers.
  I'm in no way anti-Semitic, I'm anti asshole. It's the normal typical wolf cry of a thouroughly discredited bunch of muderous theiving liars to make that claim.
Besides not all Semites are Israeli you know, oh that's right, your in the process of trying to ethnically cleanse them
Pure lying scum, founded by lies and terrorism, supported by corrupt US politicians and loopy fundamentalists.
Give it up, you convince no one with your bullshit anymore.

Yep, if you hadn't done your usual stunt of staying out until as much profit as possible had been made, the war would have been a lot shorter. America is directly responsible for much of the terrorism in the world thru it's actions supporting terrosits in many many countries, and it's repeated meddling in places where they have no business.
