Iranian-Sponsored World Jerusalem Day A display of anti-Israeli anti-United States propaganda and calls for their destruction

World Jerusalem Day is marked on the last Friday of Ramadan a decision made by the Ayatollah Khomeini, leader of the Iranian Islamic Revolution, in 1979.

Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad continue to use Facebook and Instagram for the dissemination of incitement messages

The events of the month of Ramadan and the series of terrorist attacks perpetrated in Israel since mid-March 2022 have once again brought to mind the use made by Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) of social media as platforms to convey incitement messages and calls for carrying out terrorist attacks. To deliver their messages of incitement, Hamas and the PIJ make use of platforms such as Twitter, TikTok, WhatsApp, Telegram, and YouTube. These platforms are neither supervised nor subject to a consistent policy of removing content and blocking pages and accounts inciting terrorism and violence. However, alongside these types of social media, Hamas also succeeds in conveying its messages of incitement through Meta’s platforms (Facebook and Instagram)

Delegitimization

The classic Christian anti-Semitism of the European countries began to take root in the Arab-Muslim World as a widespread phenomenon in the early twentieth century. Anti-Semitism in the Arab-Muslim World is generally directed at Israel as a Jewish-Zionist state and at the Jewish People that supports Israel, so that no clear distinction is made in the Arab-Muslim World between criticism of the State of Israel and incitement against the Jewish People. Anti-Semitism in the Arab-Muslim World is prominent in Iran, but it is also widespread among other Arab and Islamic regimes.

The de-legitimization campaign is a global campaign against Israel and the Jewish People that originated at the Durban conference in South Africa. Its goal is to brand Israel as a leper state and as an apartheid state in order to undermine its legitimacy and bring about its collapse, just as the apartheid regime in South Africa collapsed. Attempts to delegitimize Israel succeed in providing an ideological platform for promoting and leveraging a policy of sanctions, diversion of investments and boycotts in a wide range of areas such as academia, culture and sports, the economy, defense and more.

The de-legitimization campaign is also characterized by organized convoys and flotillas to the Gaza Strip, protest demonstrations, marches, events marking anniversaries, boycotting Israeli goods and more. The organizers of the de-legitimization events try to attract widespread media coverage and challenge Israel to respond to them.

To manage the de-legitimization campaign, organizations affiliated with radical Islam joined forces with extreme leftist organizations, human rights organizations, and NGOs from Western countries. The de-legitimization campaign is now characterized mainly by anti-Israeli activity in the West, together with the campaign to boycott Israel (BDS). In the past, the partners in the de-legitimization campaign carried out activities such as convoys and flotillas to the Gaza Strip.
