UPDATED: Hamas Psych Ops Emails

Monday, November 19th, 2012

You may have gotten an email from “Moshe Rooter” in the past day. If you did, then congratulations, Hamas or one of their affiliate terrorist organizations has decided to reach out to you.

The email links to a series of videos.

The first two are of a jeep blowing up. Presumably this is the jeep that was hit by the anti-tank missile just before Operation Amud Anan began, when 4 IDF soldiers were injured by Gazan terrorists.

The third video claims to show an Israeli drone that was shot down during Operation Amud Anan. A military expert who viewed the video tells us that claim is very unlikely based on what can be seen in the video.

The writing in the email and the video is in Hebrew, and from the text body, it’s clear the sender wants you to believe that the sender is an Israeli (he writes “our soldiers”).

But when you watch the video, the sharp-eyed viewer will immediately realize the translator mixed up the letters B and P, a common mistake among Arabs who can’t pronounce the “P” sound (as in Palestine). Both letters sound the same to Arab ears.

The translator took a stab as to which letter it was, and guessed wrong.

The more interesting question is, how did they get your email?

As near as we’ve been able to figure, they’ve been collecting them from forwarded emails. When someone forwarded your Israel/Jewish related email you sent out, at some point it must have reached one of their operatives and they added it to their list.

The alternative is that they’ve compiled a list of influential Jews, and then found their emails.

We’re flattered, if that’s the case.

UPDATE: They’ve sent out a new email identifying themselves as one of the many splinter terror groups.

Too Many IDF Reservists

Saturday, November 17th, 2012

While the IDF has authorized the call up of up to 75,000 reservists, over 100,000 reservists have asked to serve in Operation Amud Anan.

The telephones in the IDF Reserve Center are ringing off the hook, and the soldiers manning phones are trying to explain to the reservist volunteers that the IDF has enough soldiers right now.
