Israeli Internet Offensive
Israel is launching offensives on the Internet to support its war against the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip, that’s whats the new media said and what I have personally experienced.
The MNC News reported last Thursday that Israel is using the Internet as part of its strategy in the war against the Palestinian people, though its website/blog/e-mail.
And this morning the website Gulf News wrote an article titled: Israel wages a public relations offensive reporting about Israeli’s efforts to use the news media to improve their image.
Beside that, I have my own experience being victimized by Israeli Internet offensive when I placed Google’s Advertisement (Adsense) on the right side of this blog. I agreed to do so because Adsense mentioned that the Advertisements would be suitable with the contents of this blog i.e. things related to the Indonesian Laws, therefore 2 weeks ago I placed 3 display boxes each with a size of 200 x 200 promoting 2 different offers for services/goods, totaling 6 offers. But to my surprise, 3 of the offers were regarding Israel, only 2 regarding Indonesia and another one from other country. Therefore, I changed the display boxes into size: 200x90 as can be seen on the right side of this blog, each box showing 5 offers mostly about Indonesia.
The above experience surprised me because I am neither ANTI nor PRO any party in the Gaza Strip War, as shown in my previous postings in this blog which is specifically about things related to Indonesia. But I am against any acts of Injustice & Violence.
