Young Israelis Fight Hashtag Battle to Defend #IsraelUnderFire -

Young Israelis Fight Hashtag Battle to Defend #IsraelUnderFire - Confronted with an outpouring of sympathy on social networks for Palestinians killed or wounded in Gaza in an eight-day military confrontation, a group of young Israelis is pushing back, using the hashtag #IsraelUnderFire to rally support for what they say is an unavoidable, defensive war provoked by rocket fire from Islamist militants.

As The Jerusalem Post reports, the effort to make Israel’s case is being spearheaded by 400 college students posting comments, memesvideo clips,images and explanatory graphics on Facebook and Twitter from dozens of computers in a “Hasbara war room” at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya, north of Tel Aviv.
