we can send a powerful message to the Israeli government that we won't tolerate their terrorist action"
It does make me wince a bit but I can't be against it really.
helps you work, rest and play
although I can see why it's laughable, I'm not going to criticise anyone that wants to do it.
dropping 12 tonnes of ecstasy tabs into Israel. Man, they'd be so loved up! It'd be the end of the war!
is the producer of the best ectasy in the world anyway.
Along with Holland...
this is just the illusion of power and significance, which is far worse than realising your own impotence and worthlessness
dedicated to making the people in power listen to facebook crusade groups
once we get more than 200 members we can't fail
as discussing it on DiS. OMG
but friends telling each other to support a cause such as this through facebook might actually reach young people who would otherwise let this pass them by entirely. it all helps raise awareness, even if just by the tiniest amount, which can only be a positive thing, can't it?
anyhow i think it's sure as hell a better sign than people just not giving a shit
The thing is, while it's naive to think that this alone will make a difference, hannnah is right and it does all raise awareness, and as a result of heightened awareness people then might go and act on it.
It might seem childish but Facebook is, for better or worse, such an easy way of "spreading the word", so to speak.
I have some faith in the power of the people after the awareness raised by a Facebook group meant enough people went to the meeting and stopped an utterly ridiculous "Equal Opportunites Amendment" proposed by the Evangelical Christian Union from being passed.
See also, Jeff Buckley's Hallelujah coming 2nd to the Christmas Number 1 - yes it was 2nd, not first, but where would it have been in the charts (if at all?) had it not been for the Facebook group's campaign?
Don't want to say "pointless exercise", but...
reducing a century of conflict into a glib, partisan facebook status is hilarious. "xxxx is fuck isreal zionist cunts" etc.
