In the world of Twitter, where everything is fast and immediate, so is the hatred.

Over the past few days and in response to the mainstream media coverage of Operation Protective Edge and the hundreds of rockets indiscriminately fired at Israeli civilians, new hashtags have been trending. Because so much of the reporting emphasizes Gazan casualties and use Palestinian Arab statements casting blame on Israel, casual observers believe Israel started the conflict, believe that Israel is waging a disproportionate response to Gaza rockets, and believe Israel is guilty of war crimes and humanitarian violations.

When a critical mass of tweets all contain the same phrase following a hashtag (#) sign, it is considered “trending.”

On Tuesday, July 15, the phrase #IfHitlerWereAlive was trending in certain parts of the world. Here are a few examples:

* #IfHitlerWereAlive the Jews would have been killed and Muslims in Gaza would live peacefully.

* #IfHitlerWereAlive could’ve learn more tactics from Israel. #GazaUnderAttack.

*  #IfHitlerWereAlive  this world would be a better place. Clean from Jews! And another popular trending phrase has been #HitlerWasRight. Here are some examples of that one:

* #HitlerWasRight I would have killed all #jews in the world but some of kept alive [sic] to show the world why i killed them…….#HitlerWasRight

*  If #Hitler was left to finish em all #Israel the world wud b happier n safer #HitlerWasRight #HitlerDidNothingWrong @IsraeliPM

* Jews are responsible for all wars! #MelGibsonWasRight #HitlerWasRight

* This is what we are identifying today :/ sorry #Hitler you were right #HitlerDidNothingWrong #HitlerWasRight #Gaza pic.twitter.com/2LdfefkpCM

And this person tweeting cannot figure out if Hitler was good or bad:

* “Right to defend responsibly”, #Netanyahu, ure #Hitler reincarnated, except #HitlerWasRight. #GazaUnderAttack #Israel

  35. All anti-Israelis are fulfilling biblical prophecy as it is written in the book of Joel 3:1-2. 1 [a]“In those days and at that time,
    when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem,
    2 I will gather all nations
    and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat.[b]
    There I will put them on trial
    for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel,
    because they scattered my people among the nations
    and divided up my land”. Oh God of Israel remember your chosen people. From Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

  36. People please pray for this young,ignorant,and deceived generation, they don’t know about truth or history, only the lies that they are forced and raised to believe is all they know. Pray that whoever among their children can be reached and spared by God will.
